Local Koreans blast treatment of North Korean refugees Dozens of Korean Americans from the region protested the treatment of North Korean refugees during a rally March 26 near H Mart in Federal Way. China is under fire for its repatriation policy of North Korean refugees. Rather than being granted asylum, the refugees are sent back to North Korea, where they face torture, imprisonment and even death. The National Unification Advisory Council Seattle Chapter organized the rally in Federal Way. In May, about 30 chapter members will visit South Korea, and meet with President Lee Myung-bak, to speak on behalf of Korean Americans.

The refinancing of bonds by Federal Way Public Schools will bring savings to taxpayers. On March 27, the school board approved the refinancing of $12.9 million in bonds issued in 2004. Sally McLean, assistant superintendent of business services, said this is good financial news for the school district. “More than half of the current debt that the district has issued with voter authorization will be retired in the next 10 years,” McLean told the board. “That is really a very exciting place for us to be.” For the $12.9 million in 2004 bonds to be refinanced, McLean said interest rates are driving the discussion on this action. “When bonds are issued, just like when you refinance your home, a certain interest rate is attached to that particular bond sale. Interest rates fluctuate over time, and we have continued to see interest rates at a very low level,” she said. “The 2004 bonds [ more BONDS, page 12 ]

City wants your cooking oil By ANDY HOBBS

Rather than dumping cooking oil in the kitchen sink or toilet, consider giving grease a chance. Federal Way unveiled its first used cooking oil collection site March 28 at French Lake Dog Park, 31531 1st Ave. S. Seattlebased General Biodiesel, which is partnering on the


project, will convert the oil into fuel — and keep it from polluting Puget Sound and other waterways. Cooking oil wreaks havoc on underground water pipes. The oil builds up over time, especially in the vicinity of restaurants and businesses. At Wednesday’s event, Lakehaven Utility District officials provided a representation of what could

happen to water pipes due to improper disposal of cooking oil. A small piece of pipe was coated on the inside with solidified grease that was a few inches thick. Lakehaven regularly flushes nearly 800,000 feet of piping a year, said commissioner Tim McClain. Although it is unknown how much cooking oil is dumped into the general [ more OIL, page 12 ]

Court upholds verdict in police negligence case By ANDY HOBBS

ing the protection order. The civil suit was brought by Roznowski’s daughters, Carola Washburn and Janet Loh, both of California, in May 2009. The jury awarded Roznowski’s estate $1.1 million. Federal Way appealed the verdict, which was upheld Monday by the state Court of Appeals. The court affirmed the trial court’s grant of a new trial on damages for Roznowski’s daughters. The civil suit claimed that Roznowski’s death could

have been avoided had Federal Way police officer Andy Hensing, who served the order, read the Law Enforcement Information Sheet that accompanied it. The protection order contained information on Kim’s history of assault and violent behavior, along with provisions that restrained Kim from contact with Roznowski. The order stated that an interpreter who spoke Korean would be needed to ensure Kim understood the provisions.

“We conclude that this evidence was sufficient to persuade a rational, fair-minded juror that the city breached its duty to Roznowski by failing to enforce the order that Officer Hensing served on Kim,” according to the March 26 state Court of Appeals ruling. “This supports the jury verdict to the extent of liability and damages in favor of Roznowski’s estate.” The city argued that it did not owe any “legal duty of care” because Roznowski sought an anti-harassment protection order, rather than a protection order,

which falls under another state law. This technicality, the city said, relieved Federal Way of any duty other than serving the order. “There was sufficient evidence for the jury to find that the city breached its duty to Roznowski,” the court stated. “Officer Hensing failed to enforce the express provisions of the Superior Court’s order that were intended to protect Roznowski from harm.” In March 2010, Kim was sentenced to 244 months in prison for the murder. Kim had pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

This week’s…


Police Blotter Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log: • Rock in windshield: At 8:55 a.m. March 22 in the 2900 block of SW 333rd Street, a woman reported that someone had thrown a rock through her car’s windshield. Acc message was attached to the rock, which read “Don’t mess with my man, bitch.” The woman was uncertain of why this happened because she is currently single and not dating anyone. • Burglar steals rifle and pain-

killers: At 4:27 p.m. March 21 in the 2600 block of South 302nd Street, a man reported his home had been burglarized. The man had been away for a number of days and entry was made through an unsecured window. According to the report, the unknown suspect took a saw, a rifle, a watch, a prescription of hydrocodone and $15 worth of coins. • Vehicle left on Sacajawea baseball field: At 1:51 a.m. March 24 in the 1100 block of South Dash Point Road, an unknown suspect drove a vehicle onto the baseball field at Sacajawea Middle School. The vehicle got stuck in the mud on the field, and was abandoned. Police contacted the registered owner, who retrieved the vehicle.

• Estranged husband allegedly throws dog poo: At 9:11 a.m. March 24 in the 34000 block of 27th Avenue SW, a woman and her estranged husband got into an argument. According to the report, the woman believes her estranged husband threw a bag of dog feces at her car windshield as he left, although she could not substantiate the claim. Police contacted the husband, who denied the accusation. • Dad tells stories about mom: At 5:34 p.m. March 24 in the 4700 block of SW 325th Place, a woman called to report her estranged husband had been telling their children

that she is possessed by the devil and has demons inside of her. • Man finds backpack in backyard: At 5:26 p.m. March 24 in the 3000 block of South 288th Street, a man called to report finding a backpack in his backyard. According to the report, the backpack had seven cellphones inside of it, along with a keyring. The owners of the cellphones were unable to be located or contacted. • Burglar scores jewelry, cash: At 10:48 a.m. March 24 in the 2400 block of South 315th Lane, the victim reported their apartment had

been burglarized and that $4,000 in jewelry and $1,400 in cash was stolen. According to the report, entry was made by throwing a rock through the glass sliding door. • 3-year-old wanders off: At 6:32 p.m. March 25 in the 1200 block of SW 354th Place, a man reported he had found a 3-year-old child wandering around unattended. The man took the child back to his residence and called police. At almost the same time, the child’s mother called police to report her child missing. She was directed to the man and was reunited with her child. According to the report, the police didn’t believe

the mother was guilty of any wrongdoing or neglect. • Mother and son get in violent argument: At 7:58 p.m. March 25 in the 2400 block of South 315th Lane, police responded to a domestic violence call. According to the report, a mother and her son got into an argument. The mother attempted to call 911, at which time the son beat her physically. Along with this, the son held a knife to his own throat in an effort to keep her from contacting police. The son was arrested. The report notes this entire argument took place in the presence of children.

Federal Way and our entire region is full of people who are familiar with handling weapons. Maybe it is because we are located so close to Joint Base Lewis-McChord. We also live in a state with strong laws that recognize the importance of possessing and handling firearms. At least two developers are prepared to build indoor gun ranges in Federal Way. One new range is likely to be under construction soon, and a new gun store will also open for business soon. The Armed Defense Training Association in Federal Way met with one local businessman recently to discuss his plans. He shared many details about the facility. It will have bays for pistol and rifle shooting and the tactical work that law enforcement needs to prepare for worst-case scenarios. There will also be a computer assisted design machine that can take measurements and manufacture parts that are difficult to obtain. Our business leaders and the entire community will welcome these new enterprises. They can expect to see shooting competitions, schools for armed citizens and businesses that cater to shooters and law enforcement as a result of what a few local entrepreneurs are planning. The Federal Way Police Department and other law enforcement agencies (including possibly the Department of Homeland Security, which now has offices in Federal Way) need the additional opportunities for training officers. Between federal, state and local agencies and all the new gun owners, there is so much pressure on the indoor and outdoor ranges in the area that getting range time for tactical training can often be a challenge. Several federal and local agencies, including FWPD, train at the Cascade Range and the King County Sheriff ’s Range, which are connected to each other near Ravensdale. It’s a fairly long drive from Federal Way if you go with any regularity. The Armed Defense Training Association (ADTA) is exploring ways to work with many of the existing ranges in the area — and the new ranges — in order to encourage all community members to work together in fostering responsible and productive shooting events, including safety and training. We even hope to sponsor and organize various shooting competitions. Plan to attend a special program by the ADTA at 6:30 p.m. May 3. The free public meeting will be held at Genesis Realty, 32014 32nd Ave. S. in Federal Way. Guest speaker will be FWPD Cmdr. Kyle Sumpter, our local “Top Shot” contestant. Sumpter is responsible for FWPD firearms training. He will be speaking on his experience as a competitor on “Top Shot,” which airs Tuesdays on The History Channel. It could be informative to ask Sumpter how a new Federal Way shooting range may impact Federal Way police training activities. Federal Way resident Mark Knapp:

WA’s clout declines in Congress

Vote yes on Prop. 1 for fire department

● L E T T E r S - Y o u r opinion C o u nts :

When I was younger, I thought the fire department’s job was merely to fight fires. As I have grown older, I now understand the vital role they play as first responders in our community. When we find ourselves amidst crisis, the fire department is called upon to bring calm to our storms. These past few years have been difficult for us all with a strug-

gling economy and falling home values. Not only have we been affected, but our fire department has as well. They have responsibly done the best with what we as taxpayers have given them. As I viewed, I was alarmed at how underfunded our fire department currently is and why it’s so critical now to support those that have been there for us.

er when Congressman Tom Foley was elected Speaker of the House, making him the third most powerful person in the country. However, in the spirit of “what have you done for me lately,” the voters in Spokane suddenly decided that term limits seemed like a good idea and replaced Foley with George Nethercutt because he promised to serve only two terms. He served three, then disappeared from the political landscape after a loss in a run for the U.S. Senate. With Senators Patti Murray and Maria Cantwell moving up the seniority ladder and Dicks’ clout in the House, Washington state had regained a lot of lost ground. If the Republicans hold the House, and Hastings and McMorrisRodgers continue up the ladder, we still may be in a good position. But it will be a while before the loss of Dicks is replaced. When Dicks’ announcement first came out, there was a long list of potential replacements. But after State Sen. Derek Kilmer expressed his interest, all the other Democrats withdrew, giving him a pass through the primary. Doug Cloud and Jesse Young, who have run before, are the most likely Republicans to enter the race, but will split the primary vote. Redistricting put 3rd District Republican incumbent Jaime Herrera Beutler in a more favorable district in the Vancouver area. And it also placed her opponent from last year, Olympia Democrat Denny Heck, as the likely frontrunner in the new 10th congressional district. The new district stretches from south of Tacoma through the Olympia area. Heck will be challenged by Tacoma area Republicans Stan Fleming and Dick Muri. [ more ROEGNER page 5 ] Bob Roegner

Next January, when our congressional delegation reconvenes in the other Washington, some introductions are going to be necessary. Due to population growth, redistricting, a resignation and a major retirement, our state will have at least three new members of Congress. We have added a new 10th congressional district, but we will also lose some power. The biggest news is in the 6th District where Democratic Congressman Norm Dicks announced that he will step down and take with him more than 30 years of service in the nation’s capital. Washington, D.C., is a town where seniority is usually tied to success. Dicks’ power and influence will be hard to replace. Had the Democrats retained control of Congress, he would have been a member of the “College of Cardinals.” The political term refers to a small number of very powerful insiders who control the nation’s purse strings. Republican Congressional members Doc Hastings of Tri-Cities and Cathy McMorrisRodgers of Spokane have emerged as leaders since their party is in the majority. But they simply don’t have the seniority to replace the clout that Dicks had acquired. Whether you like earmarks or not, when the pork is coming to our state, that is preferable to going to another state. Dicks’ ability to push the right buttons will be sorely missed, and could take many years to replace. Several years ago, we lost the Democratic “gold dust twins” when Sen. Warren G. Magnuson was defeated by Republican Attorney General Slade Gorton, and Sen. Henry M. Jackson died and was replaced by Dan Evans. We temporarily made up for that loss of pow-

Who do you blame for high gas prices? Are you happy paying $4 per gallon of gasoline? I am not. In fact, I am mad. But who should I be mad at? I have been told that it is “speculators” who are driving up the price of gasoline. Well, it is not easy being mad at speculators.

I would rather be mad at some person(s) that I can recognize by name. How about Iran? Their dictator seems bent on cutting off our supply of oil. And when the supply of oil goes down, the price goes up. How about that? To bring down the price of fuel, all we need do is increase the supply. And how do we do that? I have heard that within the borders of our country, we have the largest supply of oil and natural [ more LETTERS page 5 ]

In the 1st District in the Everett area, Jay Inslee’s resignation from Congress to run full time for governor has resulted in a flurry of candidates. County Councilman John Koster is the most well known Republican, as he has run before. The Democrats have enough candidates to almost field a baseball team. Darcy Burner, Suzan DelBene, Laura Ruderman, Roger Goodman and Steve Hobbs are all well known. Unless a clear frontrunner is established before the primary, Koster will be able to save resources for the general election while the Democrats expend energy and money just to get past the primary. Whoever the three new House members are, they will start at the bottom of the seniority list, and will need to hope that more influential members can help them obtain good commit-

tee assignments. In the other seven congressional races, the incumbents are favored, which should help us maintain some stability. One of the new ones won’t be liberal Democratic Ohio Congressman — and two-time candidate for president — Dennis Kucinich. He was hoping the new 10th District would be part of Seattle. When the district was established farther south, where it would be harder for him to win, he ran in his old reconfigured Ohio district and lost to another incumbent who was placed in the same district. Kucinich’s seniority would have been helpful to our state, and he is entertaining. He will visit our area April 12 to speak about Social Security at Highline Community College. Filing is early this year, so watch to see who follows through on running and who has been campaigning just to test the water.

gas in the world. We have enough to supply all our needs for the next 200 years. So what’s the problem? The answer is simple. The current administration will not permit additional drilling in Alaska; will not permit off-shore drilling; will not permit drilling in the Gulf of Mexico; will not permit drilling on federal lands. Natural gas is a much cleaner fuel than gasoline and it is in huge supply in this country, but our administration will not promote conversion for its use in place of gasoline. Our present administration seems determined to solve our energy problems with alternative fuels such as wind or solar power. That may very well be true, but

School district offers online Khan Academy as resource for students, parents By Greg Allmain

The Khan Academy is an online repository of lessons, practice questions and instructional videos that has been recently added to the Federal Way Public Schools (FWPS) toolbox to help students and parents better understand the material being taught in schools. Marie Verhaar, director of Standards Based Curriculum and Instruction for FWPS, shared some of the advantages the Khan Academy access could bring to students in the district. “The Khan Academy offers a library of over 3,000 videos covering K-12 math and science topics, such as biology, chemistry and physics,” Verhaar said at the March 27 school board

Khan has a built-in system to recognize when the student is succeeding or struggling, and will adjust the difficulty of math problems accordingly, Verhaar said. FWPS has integrated the system into its Power Standards page at the district website (www. That page explains how to access the videos from the district’s website.

meeting. “Each video on their site is…approximately 10 minutes long and designed to be viewed on the computer. If you have an iPhone, there’s an app for that. It’s called the Khan Archives and you can pull up anything you ever wanted to know about math and science concepts and watch a video right there.” Another component of the Khan Academy is a practice question section for math, where students can do math problems as many times as they like.

As of now, the videos are only available in English, Verhaar said. She feels the videos are going to be a powerful tool for students. “It’s really at a student level, it’s really comprehensible to the students,” she said. School board president Tony Moore said he was excited about the new partnership. Moore wondered how those who might have barriers to access to the appropriate technology would be able to use the videos. “We’re eager to bridge and build ways to get technology into the hands of our children,” Verhaar said. “I know last summer Qwest had a deal where people could get Internet for $10 a month and they got a voucher or coupon to

get a computer for a very low cost. Those are things we need to continue to explore.” Superintendent Rob Neu added that the district is working on ways to increase access to technology for underprivileged kids, mostly by reaching out to the community. “We have some intentional strategies we have to employ, so we can deploy, the technology to the kids, especially to the kids that don’t have opportunities at home,” Neu said. Moore said he hopes the district will explore possibly keeping school buildings open and staffed for longer hours, to help increase access to technology for the district’s disadvantaged students.

Sumpter’s ‘Top Shot’ team gets back on track By Greg Allmain

Federal Way Police Department Cmdr. Kyle Sumpter’s red team found its way back to the winner’s circle on this week’s episode of “Top Shot” on Kyle Sumpter The History Channel. Contestants on the marksman show were tasked with completing a series of trick shots this week. Sumpter’s red team won the challenge easily, 9-7, over the blue team. “It was nice for the red team to get back on the victory path,” Sumpter said. “We were long overdue for it.” The red team had jumped out to an impressive lead early this season, before losing a couple of challenges in a row and, subsequently, a number of teammates. For this week’s challenge, the shooters competed in five trick shot stations using the Remington M1911 semi-automatic pistol and the Volquartsen Ruger 10/22 rifle. The first two challenge stations required pinpoint accuracy in using the M1911 to shoot bowling pins. The first station required the shooter to propel one bowling pin through two others without disturbing them. The second, which was Sumpter’s challenge, required the shooter to push the lead pin in either direction to pick up one of the other pins, much like picking up a spare in bowling. “We thought it was going to be easy. I was surprised when I missed the first shot,” Sumpter said of his 2-for-3 performance at his station. The FWPD commander explained the strategy his team took for its practice

round, and why his station ended up being more challenging for him than he expected. “Each team gets limited time and ammo for practice, and we recognized fairly quickly that the can challenge would be hardest, so we gave Gary (Shank) some of our practice ammo to get him more practice on the cans,” Sumpter said. “Gary shot quite a bit of ammo. Two rounds is all we fired at those bowling pins in practice.” The can challenge Sumpter referenced required the shooter to hit a paint can full of water 30 feet downrange in order pop another paint can on top of it into the air. The shooter then had to hit the top can while it was in midair. The extra practice afforded to Shank paid off, with the firearms instructor going 3-for-3 in the challenge, and giving the red team a lead the blue team could not overcome. The two challenges that used the Volquartsen rifle required shooters to hit a bottle opener 75 feet downrange to open a bottle of soda, and hit gum balls a half-inch in diameter 35 feet downrange. Sumpter said the rifle shooters for this week’s episode had an incredibly difficult task. “The wind, combined with those shots having to be so precise, along with standing with no support, those were incredibly difficult shots,” he said. “Wind affects handgun shooters, but not to the degree it does for a rifle shooter.” This week’s episode revealed that a deep discord was present among Sumpter’s opponents in the blue team, something he found surprising. “I was totally unaware of that. I had heard some ripples of it, but I was surprised when they nominated William (Bethards) to go elimination. I did not realize it was as significant as it was, until I saw it on TV on Tuesday night,” he said. To watch online streaming episodes of “Top Shot,” visit

Businesses still collect expired stadium tax Mirror staff reports

The 1996 food and beverage tax passed to fund the construction of Safeco Field expired in October 2011. The state Department of Revenue (DOR) is reminding businesses and bars that the half-cent tax no longer applies. The DOR has notified businesses of the expiration, but is still receiving reports of King County businesses collecting the extra half cent nearly six months after the tax ended. Businesses, bars and taverns should only collect state and local sales taxes, which are between 8.6 percent to 9.5 percent, and not collecting 9.1 to 10 percent. If a business has overcharged, it’s advised that customers receive a refund upon request. To learn more online, visit www.dor.

Sheriff Sue Rahr retires; Strachan to fill in April 1 By GREG ALLMAIN

King County Sheriff Sue Rahr will retire from law enforcement at the end of this month, ending a 32year career in service to the citizens of King County. Rahr will move onto the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission, the organization responsible for training all police officers in the state except state patrol officers. Rahr named Chief Deputy Steve Strachan as the interim sheriff. “Sheriff Sue Rahr set the standard high for the men and women of the force, but she especially showed the great heights women can achieve in law enforcement,” said King County Councilman Pete von Reichbauer. “For 32 years, Sheriff Sue Rahr has served in law enforcement and although she will be missed in King County, I am confident she will do great things at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission. I am also excited to welcome Steve Strachan to the position of King County Sheriff.” Strachan is set to take office April 1. He also served as the chief of police for Kent from 2006-11, and was selected as Chief Deputy by Rahr in 2011. (Read more online at

graham steps down as federal way girls basketball coach After six consecutive trips to the postseason, including four straight state tournament berths, Federal Way girls basketball coach Danny Graham has stepped down. During Graham’s six-year run as the head coach of the Eagles, Federal Way was an impressive 126-37. The Eagles finished second in 2011 and third in 2009. Graham, a 1991 Federal Way High School graduate, stepped down to spend more time with his family, which includes three sons, ages 12, 10 and 7. Graham, however, will continue to coach the Federal Way baseball team. The spring sports season in high school basically runs for three months and baseball plays games and practices in the afternoon. The winter season runs five months from midNovember to mid-March with games being played at night. Josh DeYoe, who has been Graham’s top assistant for his six seasons, has been promoted to head coach, according to Federal Way athletic director Miguel Perez.

Baseball: Titans ready for playoff run Tennis: TJ

returns a bulk from last year

Preview: Beamer’s staff will keep them in every game; FWay also looking for another postseason By CASEY OLSON

Pitching, pitching and more pitching. That’s the definition of the Todd Beamer baseball team this season. The 2012 edition of the Titans features an impressive group of four starting pitchers who will win a lot of games for Beamer. Matt Bower, Brett Oyer, Richie Apigo and Scott Sunitsch could make up the best pitching staff in the South Puget Sound League South Division. Entering Wednesday, Beamer pitchers had given up a grand total of three runs in six games during their 5-1 start. Two of the runs came during a 2-0 loss to the No. 1-ranked Puyallup Vikings, who are the favorites to win the SPSL South. But the Titans aren’t far behind. Beamer finished 11-8 in the South a season ago and brings back a bulk of the players that led the team into the postseason. Leading the list is senior left-hander Bower, who has already signed a letter of intent to play at the University of Washington. As a junior, Bower ended up with a 4-4 record and a 3.90 earned-run average. He struck out 46 in 37 2/3 innings for the Titans. Also back are Oyer and junior Jarred Prather. Oyer was a first-team, All-SPSL South selection as a shortstop after hitting .348 with 11 runs, five RBIs, one triple and four stolen bases for the Titans. Oyer, a senior, was also 2-0 with a 1.62 earned-run average and 22 strikeouts on the mound. Prather finished with a .341 batting average and scored 11 runs. He had one home run, two doubles, six RBIs and also stole two bases during the 15 games he played during the SPSL regular season. Also returning for head coach Jerry Peterson are seniors Sam Kosbab (OF, P), Apigo (3B, P) and Dallin

Notable: Sophomore Cindy Park returns for the Raiders after making a trip to the sate tournament during her freshman season. Park snagged the 10th and final place at the SPSL Tournament before before finishing seventh at West Central Districts. Also back is senior Breanna Ziccarelli, who finished fourth at the SPSL Tournament, and a talented group of juniors, including Michelle Lee, Amanda Ziccarelli and Nichelle Song. Freshman Rileigh Qualls will also provide some depth.

A season ago he hit .442 and was 4-0 on the mound. casey olson, The Mirror Havili (1B, P), juniors Daniel Lee (OF) and Jaden Sawyer (Util.) and sophomores Lawyer Braun (OF) and Scott Sunitsch. Kosbab, Havili and Braun have been leading the Titan offense during the early season. The trio have combined to knock in 20 runs. “It would be a great year with our pitching and defense,” Peterson said. “If our offense develops, we should compete for a top seed in our division.”

Federal Way

The Federal Way Eagles baseball program hasn’t really had to rebuild in the last couple years. Last season, the Eagles and head coach Danny

Graham had an impressive group of seniors who won plenty of games during their time at Federal Way. However, stalwarts like Nick Tanielu, Austin Weber, Drew Cratsenberg and Brett Evans graduated last spring after leading the Eagles to the postseason the past two years. This year, Graham will be counting on plenty of newcomers to keep the Eagles in the mix, including juniors Evan Elliot and Ryan George, along with freshman Riley Cratsenberg. The Eagles do return a pair of All-SPSL players in senior Darrien Moran and junior Chris Shimer. Moran had a very impressive all-around season last year, finishing [ more baseball page 11 ]

Strong newcomers: None listed Key losses: Haley Ward, Michelle Lee; Corsica Parker; Nycole Rogers; Janna Umetin; Cynthia Tetrault.

Beamer dance wins state title Seventh title in nine years for Titans; Decatur also brings home first place For the Mirror

The Todd Beamer High School dance team won its seventh hip-hop state championship in nine seasons March 23 at the Yakima SunDome. courtesy photo

The Todd Beamer High School Dance Team won first place in the 4A Division State Dance/Drill Championships March 23 inside the Yakima SunDome. The Titans won the hip-hop division at the championships. It’s the school’s seventh hip-hop title in its nine-year history. “The team puts 100 percent effort into every practice and performance,” said dance coach Valicia Valiani. “They know if they don’t approach each day

with the common goal to succeed, someone else will. They are amazing young men and women who are an incredible example to Beamer, surrounding schools, and the community.” Last week’s championship, however, was not the dance team’s final performance for the year. The dancers’ season will culminate at the annual Beamer Breakdown Performance, April 27 and 28, at 7 p.m. at the school. The public is invited and tickets are available through Kelli Lauritzen at kellilauritzen@ or by calling (206) 769-5793. The performances next month, Valiani said, offer the opportunity to see state champions “up close and personal.” [ more dance page 11 ]

Moran had 10 RBIs, six doubles and stole five bases. Moran also led the SPSL South with 18 walks. On the mound, the lefthander finished a perfect 4-0 during the SPSL season with a 2.08 earned-run average. He struck out 35 in 30 1/3 innings of work and walked only nine. Shimer, a second baseman, was a defensive wizard in the middle infield for Federal Way. He finished third in the SPSL South in doubles with six, struck out only once during the regular season in 36 at-bats and was also hit by a pitch four times. Shimer finished with a .389 average and also scored 11 runs and drove in nine. Also back is junior Derek Klaas, who will play shortstop and help Moran and the rest of the pitching staff. “If we play good defense and throw strikes, this will give us our best chance at winning,” Graham said. “I don’t think we will outscore

[ dance from page 10]

Each of the seven seniors on the team will perform solos, along with numerous original team routines, including their state championship dance. Professional dancers will join the event, along with the Illahee Middle School Dance Team. “Beamer has such a unique culture that plays a huge part of our success,” said Valiani. “The dancers rely and trust that everyone will step up and pull their weight. By the time district and state comes, they be-

make the routine plays defensively, we will lose more than we win.”


Joseph Townsend brings back plenty of talent from a team that finished 7-12 a year ago. Jefferson is 3-1 in the early season and should be a factor in the rugged SPSL North Division. “We have very good team speed and senior leadership,” said Townsend. “We are deep in pitching and should be solid on defense.” The Raiders bring back senior first baseman/pitcher Steven Sonnenfeld, along with sophomore shortstop Niko DelaCruz. Sonnenfeld hit .457 and led TJ with 21 hits, 17 RBIs, four home runs and 15 runs scored. Jefferson also brings back one of the best pure athletes in the state in senior K.W. Williams. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder led the TJ football team to the playoffs for the first time in school history in the fall and won a state wrestling championship in the winter. Last season, he hit .396 with 17

RBIs, two home runs and a triple. Townsend will also be counting on newcomers Travis McCauley (pitcher), Hunter Henry (3B) and Mark Fitzgerald (1B, P). “We go hard 90 all the time, because hustle never fails,” said Townsend. “If the young men live and play by this quote we will be successful. If not, our lack of focus and play-hard-allthe-time attitude will fail.”


The Gators and first-year head coach Korey Sites are hoping for an improvement this season. Last year, Decatur finished 6-14 in the SPSL 3A Division, but returns plenty of experience. Leading the list are junior Derik Bontempo and sophomore Brandon Zimmerman. As a sophomore, Bontempo led the Gators with a .467 average and had two home runs, two doubles, seven RBIs and slugged .733 as an outfielder. Zimmerman, a second baseman, hit .321 with a double, 10 RBIs and six stolen bases and was voted

in sports because we have dominated the state competition,” said Beamer Principal Randy Kaczor. “And it is a tribute to our outstanding athletes, coaches and parents.” The Decatur Gators also brought home a title from Yakima. The Gators dance team won the kick division of the 2012 2B/1A/2A/3A Dance/Drill Championships. Decatur racked up 455.75 points to outdistance second-place Lake Washington (436.5).

And certainly the market is offering interest rates at below five percent,” she said. McLean noted that refinancing the 2004 bonds helps the district’s credit ratings with Moody’s and Standards and Poor’s, which also passes on savings to taxpayers. In looking at refinancing these bonds, McLean said that the district will only consider the refinancing if there’s a minimum of a 5 percent interest cost savings. As it stands right now, the current estimate is 6 percent. “Today’s estimates reflect a 6 percent interest cost savings, or roughly $800,000 in savings directly to our taxpayers,” she said. “When we started looking at this a month ago, the savings looked a little better at 9.9 percent, or roughly $1.4 million.” McLean noted that if the market moves in an unfavorable direction for

the district, the issue of refinancing the 2004 bonds may come back before the board in the summer. This is a relatively routine process for the past couple of years. McLean said the district has refinanced its bonds twice in the past three years, with an approximate savings of $3 million to taxpayers. The sale of $12 million in bonds from the $149 million bond, passed by voters in 2007, was also approved by the board March 27. This sale will help finance the

completion of the central kitchen at the district’s new Education Service Center building. For the 2007 bonds, McLean touched on the previous history of bond sales from that group, saying the district sold $45 million worth in October 2007, $37 million worth in 2008, and $45 million worth in January 2010. She said the latest sale will have a relatively short shelf life. The board delegated authority to Superintendent Rob Neu and/or McLean, in determining bids on the
