City reviews Humane Society partnership Cats get raw deal on adoptions, euthanasia

By Greg Allmain

By Greg Allmain

The number of whooping cough cases is growing at a record breaking pace, according to the Washington State Department of Health (DOH). As of April 21, 1,008 recorded cases of whooping cough were on the books for 2012, which is more than was reported in all of 2011 — and just shy of the 1,026 cases reported in 2005. At the current rate, the DOH expects the number of whooping cough cases to exceed 3,000, a level not seen in more than 60 years. Also known as pertussis, whooping cough can last six weeks or more. This contagious bacterial disease is characterized by the “whoop” sound made by the child taking a breath after coughing. “We’re very concerned about the risk to infants,

Since Federal Way began its own Animal Services Department in 2010, the city has partnered with

the Humane Society of Tacoma/ Pierce County for animal needs such as shelter, spay and neuter, and euthanasia. Kathleen Olsen, executive director for the Humane Society, gave a brief presentation to the Federal Way City Council on May 1, saying that the relationship has

been beneficial for both entities and the animals involved. “Our total intake in 2010 was 12,402 (animals) and that included Federal Way NEWS for half the year,” Olsen said. “For the six months in 2010 that we provided sheltering services for your city, 422 animals were received from


Federal Way, of which 10 percent were surrendered by owners who were no longer able to keep them.” For the part of 2010 that the city partnered with the Humane Society, 135 animals were adopted out, 55 strays were reclaimed by their owners, and 159 had to be euthanized. Olsen noted that of the 159 [ more ANIMALS, page 14 ]

Julie Kathan, 53, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a fast-spreading and terminal cancer. The doctor gave her less than a year to live. She is pictured with her husband, Jeff Kathan, and mother, Ruby Forehand, who is visiting from Georgia. ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror

Julie Kathan has terminal brain cancer, and she feels no pain. “Not even a headache,” she said. “I don’t know how much longer I have left, but I feel good.” Last September, the Federal Way woman suddenly had trouble talking, and her mental capacity seemed blurry. Kathan, 53, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a fast-spreading and terminal cancer. The doctor gave her eight to 12 months to live. Radiation treatment shrank the tumor by 2 inches, but it started growing again. A new treatment diminishes the flow of blood to the aggressive tumor. Seven months later, Jeff and Julie Kathan try to control the cancer, keeping it at bay as long as possible. Physically, she remains pain-free. Although she has lost weight, her appetite is strong. “I do have a bit of a short-term memory problem,” she said. “Other than that, I don’t feel really any different than I did.” In the meantime, the Kathans haven’t stopped living. The couple celebrated their 24th anniversary in February with a trip to Maui. On Saturday, they will see daughter Dayna, 21, graduate from Washington State University. They have another daughter, Brittni, 23, and Julie helped raise Jeff ’s oldest daughter, Brandee, 29. The Kathans have lived in Federal Way for 21 years. Since the diagnosis, Julie tries to keep a positive attitude and live for today. “Family and friends are important to me,” she said. [ more KATHAN, page 7 ]

Woman bloodies boyfriend over breakup CRIME

This week’s…


Police Blotter Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log: • Girlfriend beats up boyfriend: At 1:35 p.m. April 29 in the 33000 block of 26th Avenue SW, a woman called to report that her boyfriend had beaten her up. According to the report, upon arrival, the police found the boyfriend outside, with a torn shirt and a bloody hand. The man’s hand was bloodied when the woman bit him. The boyfriend noted he was attacked when he announced his intentions to break up with the woman. • Video monitoring system stolen: At 7:47 a.m. April 29 in the 2100 block of SW 356th Street, a business owner reported that the business had been broken into.

According to the report, the video monitoring system, along with a number of other items, were stolen from the business. • Whacky theft attempt at Victoria’s Secret: At 1:28 p.m. April 29 in the 1900 block of S. Commons, two suspects attempted to steal merchandise from Victoria’s Secret. According to the report, the duo had foil-lined bags to evade security sensors. When confronted, one of the suspects attempted to flee, but was apprehended after being tasered. That suspect also had a felony warrant out from the Department of Corrections for escape. • Serial retail thief gets busted: At 3:09 p.m. April 29 in the 2200 block of S. Commons, a man was arrested for stealing $269.95 worth of merchandise from Target. According to the report, the man had stolen approximately $640 in merchandise from a Target in Tacoma earlier that same day. The

man had left the Tacoma merchandise in his car. • Another woman beats her man: At 9:57 a.m. April 28 in the 30000 block of 24th Place South, police responded to a call of domestic violence with a possibility of weapons present. According to the report, the woman involved was arrested for assault/domestic violence and felony harassment. • Pistol-whipped: At 10:11 a.m. April 28 in the 950 block of SW Campus Drive, a passerby found a man lying on the sidewalk. According to the report, the man claimed he had been released from jail that day, and that two unknown assailants had attacked him and pistol-whipped him. The report notes the man refused to assist in the investigation of his assailants. • Busted car window: At 8:23 a.m. April 27 in the 1800 block of SW 353rd Place, a woman reported that one of her windows in her car had been broken out. According to the report, nothing

was stolen from the car, and it appeared no one had attempted to make entry after the window was broken. • White collar crime: At 12:22 p.m. April 26 in the 33000 block of 1st Avenue South, a man reported that a manager of a business had embezzled over $10,000 from the business since January. • Not snitching still got this guy stitches: At 8:41 p.m. April 27 in the 31000 block of 1st Avenue South, a female friend of the victim contacted police to notify them that the victim had been stabbed. According to the report, police contacted the victim, who confirmed he had been stabbed. The victim refused medical aid and also refused to press charges against the person who stabbed him. • Another great beer heist: At 11:50 p.m. April 27 in the 34000 block of Pacific Highway South, four unknown males entered a convenience store and stole an 18-pack of Corona.

City welcomes quieter, cleaner garbage trucks By Greg Allmain

Loud and odorous garbage trucks will now be a thing of the past in Federal Way, thanks to a partnership between the city and Waste Management. On May 2, the two agencies held a ceremony to welcome the addition of 22 new “clean air” trucks to the fleet that services Federal Way. According to the city, these clean air trucks run on compressed natural gas, which gives them a smaller carbon footprint. From the city’s perspective, the trucks are a win because they emit nearly zero air particulates and have 23 percent fewer greenhouse emissions. Along with this, the engine design needed to run the natural gas makes the

trucks quieter than the typical diesel-powered trucks. Mayor Skip Priest said he looks forward to having these new trucks operating in the city. “This initiative with Waste Management is really all about cleaner air and quieter streets,” Priest said. “It is another opportunity to improve the quality of life for Federal Way citizens, and an important step forward for this community’s sustainable future.” The director of Public Services for Waste Management, Mary Evans, said her company was happy to help invest in a cleaner Federal Way. “Waste Management understands that waste reduction and clean air are both critically important to the City of Federal Way,” she said. “This is another Waste Management investment to help our community partners achieve their aggressive sustainability goals.”

For more than 25 years, the iconic red-and-blue Clipper fleet has been ferrying commuters and vacationers alike between Seattle, Victoria, B.C. and the spectacular San Juan Islands. To keep the fleet as modern and comfortable as possible for passengers, Clipper Vacations began working with Bank of America in 2007. We initially helped by restructuring loans that enabled engine upgrades, allowing the fleet to reach speeds of up to 30 knots. More recently, we provided financing to modernize the fleet’s interior cabins. It’s a relationship that’s not only helping to get Seattle residents where they need to go — it’s also helping to generate local economic growth: the family-owned fleet employs 150 people. Clipper is another example of how we’re working to help locally based businesses grow and hire in the Puget Sound — and across the country. In 2011, we provided $222 million in new credit to small businesses in Washington — an increase of 28% from 2010. To learn more about what we’re doing to help strengthen the local economy, visit

On April 29, 2011, the world witnessed a seismic celebration with the nuptials between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Catherine, at Westminster Abbey, London. On April 28, 2012, Tasha Treat and Moses Masitha created their own royal time-stopping moment when they exchanged wedding vows in a fabulous ceremony at Christian Faith Center (CFC) in Federal Way. Tasha, the daughter of internationally-known pastors Casey and Wendy Treat of CFC, said “I do” after her father escorted her down the flowerbedecked aisle to be joined in holy matrimony with her South African groom. Sporting an absolutely fabulous wedding gown, the gorgeous bride was every bit the regal princess that she had hoped to be on this auspicious occasion. When she was presented to her prince, he looked equally resplendent — the picture of sartorial elegance — complemented by his megawatt pearly-white smile. Their 16 bridesmaids and groomsmen, dressed in aquamarine dresses and black tuxedos, created quite a fashion statement themselves. Honestly, I’ve lost count in recalling the number of weddings I’ve attended. But to date, the Masithas’ wedding is one of the best that I’ve witnessed. Not only did it bear all the hallmarks of a state ceremony, but it took grandness to its zenith. Its originality was stunning. There was no pipe organ wafting Richard Wagner’s “Here Comes the Bride.” Absent was the scripted “For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, so help me God.” Chivalry is definitely not dead. On bended knees, the groom said his solemn vow to his bride. But before he did so, he paused to say thank you to her mother, father and brothers for nurturing her with love. How classy is that? Playwrights and novelists would love Masitha’s pulsating lines to his bride: “I will always look over my shoulders and wait for you.” He assured his father-in-law that Casey’s cherubic daughter would be in good hands. “In Africa, the man always leads the way for his woman to protect her.” This he pledged to do for his wife as long as he lives. Tasha’s response would make any prospective husband stand tall. There’s no way he could escape feeling like the proverbial knight in shining armor. “Thank you for being the man of my dreams,” she gushed, beaming with passion. The ever flawless, oh-so-radiant chanteuse also serenaded her groom with a smashing number: “It feels like home to me. Something in your eyes makes me want to lose myself.” [ more PALMER page 5 ]

Democracy is not a spectator sport Recently, as I have sat in the city council chambers, I have began to wonder just how many of Federal Way’s 85,000-plus residents have done the same? I have had the opportunity to see it from the side of being a longtime resident and as someone who is concerned with my country and city that is a co-founder of the group Occupy Federal Way. This letter is being written as a personal observation. Since November, I have at-

Q&A: Federal Way light rail saga Over the past year, no local story has generated more questions and public interest than the ongoing saga of Sound Transit’s decision to delay light rail to Federal Way — and City Hall’s subsequent reaction. By way of background: Sound Transit staff announced in 2010 that due to the economic slowdown, the income from the public-voted sales tax for regional light rail was down by 25 percent overall in the regional service area. It is down by 32 percent in the South King County subarea of which Federal Way is a part. The plan was to have rail construction proceed south on Pacific Highway from SeaTac Airport to Federal Way at S. 272nd Street by 2023. Due to the economic downturn, Sound Transit decided to delay the project’s anticipated completion until 2040. At a meeting before the Federal Way City Council in May 2011, the city’s elected officials expressed their displeasure with Sound Transit’s decision and initiated an aggressive strategy to try and force Sound Transit to change its decision. The city plan included hiring lobbyists and threatening possible legal action. I have tried to answer just a few of the many questions I received from citizens. Q: Why was Federal Way delayed and what are sub-regions? A: A significant drop in financial resources within the South King County sub-region is the reason for the delay. Sound Transit covers three transportation inter-connected counties — King, Snohomish and Pierce. Snohomish and Pierce are each considered sub-regions. King County is broken into three sub-regions — Seattle, the Eastside and South King County.

Projects in each sub-region are funded by the taxpayers within that sub-region through voterapproved sales tax. The general theory is that one sub-region shouldn’t be expected to have their taxpayer money support another sub-region’s transportation needs. There is a limited ability to spend across sub-region boundaries in unusual circumstances when both subregions benefit. Bellevue wanted a very expensive addition to their system and Federal Way taxpayers likely wouldn’t want to support Bellevue’s desires. So cities can put up their own money for specific projects as Bellevue did. It is a geographic equity system, not a social equity system, by design. Sub-regions where taxpayers have the ability to spend more money could receive more benefit. But this also helps protect a delicate political balance by prohibiting more powerful areas, such as Seattle, from trying to capture money from other areas. Commuter rail in the valley came about in part as a defensive strategy to ensure Seattle didn’t get all the federal transit money. The separation and protection was formalized in the formation of Sound Transit. Q: Could Pierce County contribute money to help with Federal Way’s current problem, since they need us for light rail to get to them? A: That option isn’t on the table now, but could be in the future. However, if Pierce County obligated their taxpayers’ money for Federal Way projects, then South King County taxpayers would have to pay for future Pierce County\Tacoma projects — likely at a higher cost as the economy improves. I’m not sure how Federal Way taxpayers would react to that [ more ROEGNER page 5 ] Bob Roegner

tended seven Federal Way City Council meetings in person and have watched four on FWTV 21. I have attended two Federal Way School Board meetings at the council chambers and have watched six on cable. What I find most alarming about attending these meetings is not the amount of money it takes to run this place we call our hometown, or even the challenges the school district has with

keeping our students engaged in the learning process. What is alarming is the lack of community involvement and attendance at these meetings. On average, there are about 15 in attendance. These meetings are held to give each of us an opportunity to express our concerns and present issues that matter to you to the council. They are our local form of democracy at work. Question: How many reading this know

about an RFQ that was discussed recently or what SBG means? If you don’t, then maybe that’s a sign you need to attend a few meetings and find out because these will be affecting you sooner or later. There are about 100 seats and plenty of standing room for you in the chamber, and sometimes a little entertainment too. So the next time you get delayed waiting in a road construction zone, remember that while being able to

Democracy is not a spectator sport. If your Federal Way City Council is not engaging you, you engage them. Your participation is important.

option. Auburn taxpayers probably would not like it very much. Auburn and Federal Way are in the same sub-region. Q: Could Federal Way be our own sub-region? A: No, these projects are far too expensive for a city or area our size. Q: How much money does that 25 percent Sound Transit was short actually add up to? A: $3.5 billion. And yes, that’s a lot of money. Q: The city said that Sound Transit “broke its promises.” Is that true? A: Not really. Words have meaning. Sound Transit did not “cancel” the Federal Way extension. They “delayed” it from 2023 until 2040. One might argue that the delay after the public vote is a “broken promise.” But with the economy drying up, that seems like a stretch. If the economy improves, then the schedule will also improve. If it improves enough we could find ourselves back on track. If you want to help, make sure you spend your money in Federal Way. Q: Was Federal Way the only project delayed? A: According to Sound Transit, projects in Redmond, Bothell and Auburn were “deferred” until the economy improves. Q: Someone from the City of Federal Way said we weren’t getting anything for our $12 million in taxes, but didn’t we get a parking garage? A: The city spokesman says the first part of that

question is incorrect. The city wants the original plan followed. However, the political tone of the debate did lead many citizens to feel like they were still paying for a plan they may never see. But the transportation plan also needs to be considered in the context of what we build for future generations, just as past generations built projects that benefit us today. Federal Way did receive the transit center parking garage worth $39.5 million. Not all of our citizens were enthusiastic about it, and the on-off-ramps cost about $27 million. According to Sound Transit, we also get about $12 million in bus service. So, we are receiving products for our money. The city was really questioning the specifics of light rail, which we pay for, but may not see for several years. The city had separate concerns about bus service. The recent quarterly review by Sound Transit did result in additional service for Federal Way. Q: What was the Tiger Grant and S. 200th Street all about? A: Sound Transit competed nationally with 828 other jurisdictions for a federal grant to extend rail from SeaTac Airport south to S. 200th Street. It was partially funded, and construction will start in 2013 and finish in 2016. That is a major piece of good news, as it keeps the project moving south toward Federal Way. There was some behind-the-scenes political

It would have been nice to see some of the Treats’ longtime friends like Fred and Betty Price, Creflo Dollar, Brian Houston and Rick Godwin present for such a monumental occasion instead of the video-recorded messages they sent. Nonetheless, it was a swell occasion. Capping a whirlwind courtship and romance that began more than two years ago and spanning three oceans, Mr. and Mrs. Moses Masitha, locked in marital bliss, made their way down the aisle, among a horde of beaming wellwishers, going off into the world as one. Now, if that isn’t love, then those oceans are definitely dry.

intrigue about the City of Federal Way’s role in the process. Q: Will the route continue to head south along Highway 99? A: The Tiger Grant will continue rail south on Pacific Highway to S. 200th. Other funding will continue it as far as Highline Community College. After that is an open question. Sound Transit is required to do an “alternatives analysis” and consider both Highway 99 and I-5. In a simplified comparison, Highway 99 offers economic development opportunities along the route, while I-5 may be a little faster. The city has already voiced its support for the I-5 route and

Kudos to Ferrell becoming a Democrat I read with interest that Federal Way City Councilman Jim Ferrell has followed his conscience and switched parties. It’s no secret that I have been a Ferrell supporter for a number of years. Leaning left of center myself, I have said more than once that I supported Ferrell despite the “R” that followed his name. This was because I knew that, unlike the typical politician, his priority was the people rather than the party. Reading his opinion piece, I can see that he feels he can better serve the people from the Democratic side. Jim has my support more than ever. I hope the rest of those who have known and respected him feel the same. And I must say “well done” to columnist Bob Roegner, who offered a thoughtful summary of the local political landscape, given Ferrell’s decision.

Connection to Federal Way commercial (RE: “Federal Way TV commercial begins airing on cable”): Jeff Stock and Lamar Neagle have another very definite connection that would make a great story. My father, John Duggan, was Jeff Stock’s soccer coach on the Norpoint Royals as a youth and my father, John Duggan, is Lamar’s uncle. You could create a great human interest story here.

believes it might be cheaper. We don’t know if that is true, and won’t know until the analysis is done. You will hear significant debate over these two options in the future. King County Councilman Pete von Reichbauer, State Sen. Tracey Eide and Sound Transit Execu-

tive Director Joni Earl put together a plan to help keep the project moving forward by ensuring it is “shovel ready” when the economy improves. Since then, the issue has moved off the front page. That is probably a good thing and may help future discussions between Sound Transit and the city

take a more positive direction. Transportation will continue to be a major part of the public debate for the next several years.

“Money and things, they can all go away.” However, the Kathan family accepts the reality of mounting medical bills. A charity concert featuring a local music lineup — plus a live and silent auction — was held April 29 at the Temple Theatre in Tacoma. The show raised thousands of dollars to support the family’s house payments and costs related to Julie’s cancer treatment. Nearly 900 attended the volunteer-driven event. Jeff Kathan’s connections as a professional drummer came in handy for auction items like autographed guitars from Bad Company and Heart. Sir Mix-A-Lot, known for his hit “Baby Got Back,” performed along with the Pamela Moore Band featuring Randy Piper, Outtasite, Rail, Brigade, Roni Lee and an All-Star Jam. At the event, hundreds of people met the Kathans for the first time. Days later, they were still glowing from the outpouring of love. “Thank you so much to everybody who was a part of it,” Jeff Kathan said. “It’s lifted us, our whole spirit, so high.”

especially because of how quickly whooping cough is spreading,” said Secretary of Health Mary Selecky. “Whooping cough can be life threatening for infants, and they’re too young to get enough doses of vaccine to be protected. That’s why we want everyone else to make sure they’re vaccinated against whooping cough.” While there have been no fatal cases of whooping cough in infants in 2012, 71 infants under age 1 have contracted the sickness. Of those 71 infants, 12 have been hospitalized. The rate of occurrence in school children is also up, a phenomena that the DOH believes can be easily remedied with the whooping cough booster shot, TDap. The DOH advises pregnant women and women who have recently given birth to get the Tdap booster shot. “This is what we’re trying to prevent,” said State Health Officer Dr. Maxine Hayes. “When adults get sick with whooping cough, it can be miserable, but when babies get the disease, they often must be hospitalized because it’s difficult for them to feed, sleep, and breathe.” For those unsure of their whooping cough/TDap immunization status, Selecky and Hayes advise that it’s best to check immunization records. Most of those records are available through a person’s healthcare provider. The DOH notes that most providers cover the whooping cough vaccine. Children under 19 are eligible for the vaccine by visiting healthcare providers that participate in the state’s Childhood Vaccine Program. For more information, visit www.

Bank robbery sends Federal Way man back to prison Mirror staff reports:

After serving 14 years in prison for a double bank robbery, a Federal Way man is back behind bars because of another bank robbery. Federal Way resident Robert Revels III was sentenced this week to 18 years in prison for his connection with the March 10, 2010, robbery of a U.S.

Bank branch on 38th Street in Tacoma. About four months before that crime, Revels had finished a prison sentence for two bank robberies from 1997, according to U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. In the 2010 bank robbery, a masked robber brandished a loaded pistol and threatened the bank

employees and customers, including a young boy. The robber, who also kicked a prone security guard, made off with more than $8,000. A tracking device was hidden in the bag of money, according to Durkan’s office. Police followed the tracking device and found Revels, along with the money, mask and clothing from the

robbery. Although the mask contained DNA evidence from Revels, he claimed that others had robbed the bank. Revels claimed that he had picked up the cash they dropped. In December 2011, U.S. District Judge Benjamin H. Settle convicted Revels of aiding and abetting the robbery because the evidence

failed to show “beyond a reasonable doubt” that Revels was the robber, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office. Revels has previous convictions in addition to the above-mentioned crimes. In 1987, he was convicted for beating a 58-year-old janitor with a tire iron. In 1992 and 1995, he served jail terms for beating two women in domestic violence incidents. In 1996, he tried to ram police cars in an attempt to escape law enforcement. “Revels is a career violent offender who comes before the court convicted of yet another violent crime,” prosecutors wrote in their sentencing memo. “The victims from the U.S. Bank robbery will live forever with the memory of the terrifying ninety seconds when a masked robber held their lives in his hands.”

Students aid firefighter’s recovery By ANDY HOBBS

The Illahee Middle School Builders Club raised about $392 to benefit the family of firefighter Wynn Loiland, who was critically injured last fall. Loiland, a 31-year veteran at South King Fire and Rescue, was struck by a vehicle while investigating a rollover accident on Interstate 5 in November 2011. Loiland, 52, suffered severe head and facial injuries, a collapsed lung and a broken arm. He was hospitalized for nearly four

months and was in a coma during the holidays. He returned home on March 9. Now in its first year at Illahee, the Builders Club is a branch of the Federal Way Kiwanis Club for junior high school students. Assistant Chief Gordie Olson, Lt. Ryan Herrera and Nick Loiland, son of Wynn Loiland, accepted the check for nearly $392 from the middle school students on May 1. Nick said his father has made substantial physical and mental progress since being released from Harborview Medical Center in March. Wynn Loiland works out

regularly at the YMCA, Nick said, and his injured left arm is getting stronger. So far, nearly $50,000 has been raised for Loiland’s rehabilitation, much of which is not covered by insurance. In February, a fundraiser concert brought in $21,000 for the South King Firefighters Foundation, according to Herrera. The concert was sponsored by Rescue City, a non-profit company that provides firefighter and roperescue training throughout the Northwest. The foundation directs these proceeds to the Loiland family.

The forgotten Mom in your life? Rudi Alcott


Every year as May approaches and ushers in another Mother’s Day, my mom reminds me that she doesn’t need anything from me. Sure some flowers and maybe an occasional meal on her special day, but nothing big. Frankly, I think she’s just happy that I am not incarcerated or lying in a ditch somewhere. Perhaps there were times in her life when she had wished I was. I’ve never really asked her. I don’t want to know. Way too much therapy would be needed.

No, this year I think I should concentrate on the other mom. You know the one. Yeah, the wife. See, as the boys get older, they should be responsible for taking care of their mom for this day. After all, she’s not my mom. She’s theirs. The thought of them having to actually earn money to go buy their mom a present is so foreign to them it’s not worth my effort to explain these intricacies of life to them at this point in their nurturing. I see this day as progressing somewhat like this: I drive. I talk them out of – no your mother probably does not want a new Xbox, set of tools, baseball cards or Modern Warfare 3. We settle on some item with a

NEW LOCATION: f SW corner o s n o m The Com ll Ma

legible receipt, as it is likely to be returned anyway. I buy. They wrap. They give. They get the love. End of story. Move on until next year. So, you see guys, if you have boys entering puberty, let this be considered your self-preservation warning. Take them out and have them get their mom, your wife, something nice on her special day. The downside is that if they don’t and your wife becomes your mom you have problems created on a whole different level. I don’t want to be at that dining room table and I suspect neither do you.

euthanized animals, 42 were healthy cats unable to find a home, and 14 were feral cats. In 2011, the Humane Society took in 825 animals from Federal Way. 90 were reunited with their owners, and 66 animals were placed into foster homes. 32 healthy cats and 34 feral cats were euthanized in 2011, according to Olsen. In 2012, Federal Way residents have adopted 59 animals so far, Olsen said. Olsen reviewed what the Human Society does for local residents, running down the society’s list of services. “We hold strays for five days before they become available for adoption. They’re listed on our website within two hours

of check-in during regular business hours, and by 9:30 the next morning if they’re brought in overnight,” she said. “We quarantine for dog bites for 15 days for the City of Federal Way, and then after that time, if you need us to hold a dog for any other reason, you pay us an additional $10 per day for boarding. Citizens pay us a $15 impound fee

for stray cats, $25 for a dog’s first impound, $50 for the second.” Olsen noted that Federal Way agreed that any dog impounded for a second time is automatically spayed/neutered, with the cost passed on to the owner. For owners who want to board their animals with the Humane Society, they pay $5 a day for cats, and

$10 a day for dogs. For any owner who has to reclaim a stray pet, a $12 fee is assessed for a vaccination series the society gives to the animals. Surrender fees for owners run $67 for dogs and $57 for cats. Another service the Humane Society provides is a low-cost spay/neuter procedure for “free-roaming” cats. One issue that the Humane Society runs into is that it’s more difficult to adopt out cats than dogs, but if that trend could be

reversed, the Humane Society could lower its euthanasia rate to zero for cats. “What we’ve discovered is people will drive hundreds of miles for a dog, but they won’t drive three miles for a cat,” she said. “If just one person in Federal Way a week adopted a cat, or didn’t bring us a cat, we’d be at zero euthanasia for cats as well.” To find out more about the Tacoma-Pierce County Humane Society, visit www.

Jefferson junior outlasted hundreds to earn a final berth on Spanish MLS soccer reality show By CASEY OLSON

Luis Alvaro Osornio got the best phone call of his young life Sunday evening while grocery shopping with his family. The Thomas Jefferson High School junior received the call that he was selected as one of 18 soccer players from across the nation into the second round of the Sueño MLS 2012 – presented by Allstate. “We celebrated in the cereal aisle,” Osornio said. “At first I didn’t believe it. I was like, ‘wow.’ I

was in shock for a little bit.” Osornio and the five other players selected will represent the Seattle Sounders FC on a nationally-televised player search on República Deportiva, the popular Univision weekly Spanishlanguage sports show. Sueño MLS 2012 will chronicle the tryouts of the 18 players in a “reality show within a show” format. “I already got a haircut,” Osornio said with a laugh. “I was interviewed by a couple people from Univision and the local Spanish news in Seattle. I was kind of nervous and happy.”

The four-day “Final Event” will be held and taped in Carson, Calif. It will be hosted by MLS Argentine soccer legend Guillermo Barros Schelotto. The finals will include training sessions, scrimmages, guest celebrity scouts and an opportunity to meet some of the MLS’s biggest stars. The ultimate champion will be crowned on Sunday, May 13, live on República Deportiva. This is the sixth year of the Sueño MLS program and the first year Sounders FC has participated. “It’s a great opportunity,” Osornio said. “I’m nervous. I can’t lie about it. I just thank God for this opportunity.” Osornio and the other Seattle finalists, had their stories featured [ more sueño page 23 ]

Another year, another championship for the Federal Way boys track and field team. The Eagles secured their fifth-straight South Puget Sound League divisional title Wednesday night with a 12033 thrashing of Thomas Jefferson at Federal Way Michael Tate Memorial Stadium. Federal Way is a combined 30-0 over those five seasons. The dominating win over TJ came after the Eagles rolled to the title at the prestigious 38th annual Shoreline Invitational Saturday. Federal Way easily outdistanced second-place Bellevue in the 57-team invite. The Eagles finished with 92 total team points and Bellevue ended up with 51. Liberty followed in third place with 34 points. “The 92 points is the most points many could remember by a team and the greatest winning margin,” said Federal Way head coach Sam Beesley. The Eagles were led by junior Michael Tate, who was named the [ more track page 19 ]

UFC: Henderson, Edgar rematch set Decatur grad and current 155-pound champ will defend lightweight belt at UFC 150 in Denver on August 11 By CASEY OLSON

Decatur graduate Benson Henderson gets the UFC lightweight championship belt put around his waist after beating Frankie Edgar in Japan at UFC 144. file photo

Benson Henderson’s rematch with Frankie Edgar now has a date and location. The Decatur grad and current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion will face off against Edgar inside Denver’s Pepsi Center on Aug. 11. The title fight will be the main event at UFC 150, according to numerous sources. MMAJunkie. com first reported the bout on Friday. Henderson, who graduated from Decatur in 2001, won the UFC’s 155-pound lightweight title by winning a unanimous decision over Edgar at UFC 144 in Tokyo, Japan, in February.

“Everything has been pretty much the exact same,” said a humble Henderson about his life after being crowned the UFC champ. “I just keep everything similar. The only difference is a little more media interview requests, perhaps.” Henderson landed several powerful kicks and knees during the five-round fight. Judges had it scored 49-46 twice and 48-47 for Henderson. The biggest kick and moment came late in the second round when Henderson broke Edgar’s nose with an upkick. He also shut Edgar’s left eye by landing several jabs during the fight. Edgar tried to use his more polished boxing and movement, but Henderson used his size and strength to control the middle of the ring, landing the more powerful shots. As expected, Edgar and others around the UFC thought that he won the fight and was shocked when ring announcer Bruce Buffer called out the decision for Henderson. The slight controversy, and the fact [ more henderson page 20 ]

Wrap up: Beamer baseball in playoffs


The Todd Beamer Titans baseball team continued their impressive late-season push with a 1-0 win over Rogers in their South Puget Sound League South Division regular season finale April 27. The win moved Beamer (11-5 SPSL South) into second-place in the divi-

sion and earned them a shot at the Tahoma Bears in the SPSL Tournament. The Titans and Bears, who finished second in the SPSL North, played for the league’s third/fourth seeds into the West Central/ Southwest District Tournament Thursday (after press time). Against Rogers, Scott Sunitsch was impressive on the mound, picking up

the win and giving up just three hits. The win moved Sunitsch to 3-0 on the season and continued the impressive pitching that the Titans have displayed all year. The Beamer pitching staff ended the regular season with an ultra-impressive earned-run average of 2.19 and an opponents batting average of just .218. The Titan staff has given up

only 87 hits in 109 innings this season. Beamer leadoff hitter Lawyer Braun scored the only run of the game in the top of the third inning against Rogers. The Titans had only five hits on the day. Federal Way — The Eagles finished their season with an impressive 4-0 shut out of Graham-Kapowsin Saturday. Senior Darrien Moran threw a two-hitter and struck out seven in his seven innings of work. The win moved Federal Way to 7-9 in the SPSL South Division, which was good enough for a tie for sixth place. They were 8-10

overall on the season. Moran was also 1 for 3 with two RBIs. Zack Hobbs, Derek Klaas and Chris Shimer also contributed two hits each for the Eagles.


Jefferson — The Raiders (11-3 SPSL North, 13-3 overall) won their eighth SPSL North game in a row Tuesday over the Tahoma Bears, 4-3, in eight innings. Jefferson currently sits third in in the SPSL North behind Kentlake (11-2) and Tahoma (11-2) with three games remaining. Against Tahoma, the Raiders tallied a run in the top of the eighth to take a 4-3 lead and senior Katie Jackson held the Bears scoreless in the bottom of the inning to get the win.

Jackson threw all eight innings for TJ, allowing only five hits. Offensively, the Raiders were led by Lexi Goranson and Michaela Patton. The pair both finished 2 for 4 with a double and a run. Jefferson also downed Kentridge on Saturday, 8-5 and Kent-Meridian Friday, 16-2. Against Kentridge, Greenheck and Patton both finished with two RBIs and Reno Whitcomb was 2 for 3 with two runs. Rocky Hale earned the win on the mound. Against Kent-Meridian, Nicole Greenheck finished 2 for 4 with three RBIs and Jackson was 3 for 3 with two RBIs and also threw a two-hitter on the mound, striking out nine.

The Thomas Jefferson Raiders can secure the South Puget Sound League North Division soccer championship with a win or tie against the Kentlake Falcons Friday. The Raiders took the step toward the title Tuesday night with a 1-0 win over secondplace Tahoma. The only score of the game came on an own-goal by the Bears. The win moved TJ to 12-2-1 on the season and lead Tahoma by three points heading into the final game. The Raiders would also win the SPSL North with a Tahoma tie or loss Friday. Decatur — Despite losing twice during the season to the Peninsula Seahawks, the Gators secured the SPSL 3A championship Friday night with a 5-1 win over Auburn Mountainview. Peninsula finished the regular season with a 9-1-0 record in the SPSL 3A, compared to 8-2-0 by Decatur. But the SPSL’s points-based system awards three points for a win in regulation, two for an overtime

or shootout win and one for an overtime or shootout loss. Because three of Peninsula’s wins have come in extra time, they finished with 24 points, compared to Decatur’s 25 points. The Gators will be the SPSL 3A’s top seed at the sub-district tournament. Against Mountainview, Decatur senior Michael Klavuhn had another huge goal-scoring game. Klavuhn finished with four goals against the Lions to give him an amazing 23 on the season in just 14 games. The Gators’ other score came from Alex Donovan. Federal Way — The Eagles (12-2-1) were denied the SPSL South title Tuesday night by the Puyallup Vikings. Puyallup (14-1-0) secured the crown by shutting out Federal Way, 1-0. The Eagles handed the Vikings their only defeat of the season earlier in the year, 4-0. The only goal of the contest came in the 24th minute by Puyallup forward Andy Jepperson. The Eagles end the regular season Friday night at home against Rogers at 5:30 p.m.

Sports briefs: Nugent inks with Manhattan By CASEY OLSON

Green River Community College volleyball standout Katelyn Nugent (6’1, SO, Thomas Jefferson HS) signed her official NCAA national letter of intent to continue her career at Manhattan College in New York, NY. The Jaspers play in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and head coach Mark Jones plans to play Nugent as a middle hitter. Nugent is a 6-foot-1 sophomore from Thomas Jefferson High School. Nugent was a first-team, AllNWAACC Western Region performer for the Gators this season, leading the team in kills, kill percentage and blocks. Nugent was also an All-NWAACC academic performer and consistent presence on the GRCC athletic director honor roll. She will continue her studies in business administration at Manhattan. “We are thrilled for Katelyn and her family to realize the dream of advancing to the highest level of volleyball brought about from years of work,� stated GRCC Athletic Director Bob Kickner. “Katelyn came into her own last season and Coach Densley brought the most out of her. A quality student-athlete, and person, the GRCC family is proud to be a part of her journey.�

that Edgar gave rematches to B.J. Penn and Gray Maynard during his reign, necessitated Henderson-Edgar II. Edgar (15-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) held the lightweight title for nearly two years and successfully defended the belt twice with a draw mixed in. “Let’s do it,� Henderson told in Atlanta. “(Edgar) was in the position where he had to give two rematches and I don’t want to be the champ that won’t give an immediate rematch. But this fight will end the same way the first one did.� Henderson also defended a world title several times. Henderson held the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) 155-pound title for over a year before his 10-fight win streak was stopped by Anthony “Showtime� Pettis in December 2011. Since the loss to Pettis and the move to the UFC, Henderson (16-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) has been dominant. He has won all four of his matches by unanimous decisions over top-quality opponents, including Mark Bocek, Jim Miller, Clay Guida and Edgar. Henderson, 28, began wrestling during his time at Lakota Middle School and continued at Decatur, where he competed under head coach Mike Bressler. His prep career culminated with a second-place finish at the 2001 Mat Classic state wrestling championships inside the Tacoma Dome, losing to University’s Tommy Owen in the 135-pound title match. After Decatur, Henderson went on to wrestle at Dana College in Nebraska, where he earned NAIA All-American honors as a senior after finishing in fifth place at 157 pounds in 2006. Henderson’s performance helped Dana College win the NAIA national championship that year. He actually started MMA fighting a year later after a dare from a couple of Dana wrestlers. “I live this,� Henderson said. “This is what I do. I live this lifestyle. I’m a fighter.�

May 4, 2012 [23] [ SUeño from page 17]

on República Deportiva Sunday after fighting their way past more than 400 competitors in an open tryout to earn a week-long trial with the Sounders FC Academy and the trip to Southern California. The Seattle finalists will be joined at the “Final Event” by six FC Dallas finalists and six Chivas USA finalists. The two MLS franchises also held Sueño MLS 2012 tryouts last month. And even if Osornio doesn’t win the Sueño competition, the event will still allow plenty of eyes to see his soccer game. “There’s going to be academy coaches there and college coaches from everywhere in the nation,” Osornio said. “It’s a great step. My dream is to become a pro soccer player.” The 17-year-old Osornio was born in Mexico near Guadalajara and came to Federal Way as a 12-yearold with his parents. His older sister and brother are still in Mexico. “I found out about the Sueño thing the day before,” Osornio said. “My mom told me that she saw it on the local news in Spanish. I didn’t know it was going to be in Seattle.” Osornio was supposed to work during the first day of tryouts on April 21, but told his mom that he wasn’t going to go, which was a good move in the end. Osornio quickly stood out, catching the eye of the Seattle Sounders’ player development staff, particularly that of Youth Director Darren Sawatzky, who is a former soccer player and coach for the Raiders. Sawatzky coached TJ to the school’s last state title in 2007. “The number one word we all talked about was ‘potential,’” Sawatzky explained. “You look at players and you quickly notice their desire to accomplish their dream. The step between being a youth player and a pro player is substantial, and I think despite the fact of his hurt knee, Luis showed us some of these qualities.” During the tryout,

Osornio, who has six goals and six assists for the 10-21 seventh-ranked Raiders this season, admitted to playing through the pain. The Sueño MLS Seattle tryouts were held April 21-22 at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila. “I had an injured knee throughout the tryout but I knew I couldn’t give up because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Osornio said. “This is my dream and nothing is going to stop me. I want to keep going as far as I can and hope that one day in the near future, I can become a professional soccer player.” Born just one year before MLS’s inaugural season, Osornio’s desire and dream of one day stepping on the field as a pro goes back as far as he can remember. “Ever since I was a little boy, I always had a ball at my feet,” he told “So these last few days have been a big inspiration as far as one day reaching my dream of playing for a pro team, a dream that has become a bit of an obsession for me.” Approximately 400 youth players between the ages of 14 and 18 showed up to Starfire for the Sueño tryout. The players were put through a rapid process to determine who advanced to the national final. On the first day, the players were reduced to a group of around 30, which came back for the second day. For now, Osornio is just grateful for the chance to take part, particularly meeting Sounders players Fredy Montero and Josh Ford. “Our talks with Josh Ford and Fredy Montero were very inspiring because at one point they were like us,” Osornio said. “They were aspiring young soccer players chasing a dream.” The other Sueño finalists from the Seattle tryout include Jose Ramos, 15, from Tacoma; Ivan Marmolego, 17, from Orondo, Wash.; Giovanny Soto, 15, from Wenatchee; Herbert Cojulun, 17, from Casey, S.C.; and Hector Palos, 17, from Philadelphia.
