City’s business incubator heads in new direction

Human trafficking: AG’s battle Backpage By GREG ALLMAIN gallmain@fedwaymirror.com

As awareness about human trafficking has increased, one of the most common themes heard from law enforcement is the fact that human trafficking, especially those areas that deal in the sex trade, has moved from the real world to the virtual world. One of the easiest and most popular avenues for human trafficking is through websites that have “adult” sections, such as CraigsList, or more recently and notoriously, Backpage.com. Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna, along with 48 other attorneys general (AG) from across the country, are taking Backpage.com to task in an attempt to stop the site’s influence in the human trafficking world. Backpage recently balked at the pressure from McKenna and his fellow AG’s to take down the site’s adult features for the time being, a request that Backpage says it will not obey.

Ken Newton lives in the Kloshe Illahee community in Federal Way. Greg ALLMAIN, The Mirror

Veteran’s career spanned 4 decades, 3 continents By Greg Allmain gallmain@federalwaymirror.com

While he now takes it easy in the small development known as Kloshe Illahee, at one time Federal Way resident Ken Newton went all over the world in service to his country as a member of the Army. From intelligence gathering to photog-

raphy to being the lead administrator over officers and soldiers clubs, Newton did it all, and did so in vastly different places. “I went in the first time when I was in high school, into the active reserves, that was in 1955. Then I took a short discharge and went active, and went through basic at Fort Lewis,” he said. “Then I went to [ more VETERAN, page 11 ]

The South Sound Regional Business Incubator (SSRBI) is shifting directions in its efforts to spur business and job growth in the Federal Way region. The new focus will be technology, said Patrick Doherty, the city’s director of economic development. “Jobs for South Sound (a parent organization for the incubator) is interested in focusing in the technology sector to create a cluster here in Federal Way of start-up and small existing businesses already here that are poised for growth, and providing the quality family wage and higher wage jobs that the technology sector provides,” Doherty told the city council at its May 15 meeting. The refocusing includes targeting business that fall under a few key metrics. The incubator hopes to assist companies that have filed or will file for patent protection; have a short lead time to market; focus on smartphone devices and similar handheld

Local job creation SSRBI is a program overseen by the Federal Way Chamber. The incubator opened in June 2010 at 402 S. 333rd St. When first launched, officials expected the incubator to last 10 years and help create 200 jobs a year in the Federal Way area. The Chamber reports a total of 151 jobs created since the incubator’s inception. The business incubator program was designed to assist in the development of small businesses in the city. Resources and services, such as financial management tools, marketing advice, access to capital, business training programs, mentoring and more have been offered to start-up companies through the incubator. devices. The incubator will also assist companies that focus on electrical devices; software tools; green tech products; or tools or devices that solve a problem, reduce costs or increase productivity.

State sues UPS after crash injures local pastor Keyless ignition may be linked to truck’s brake failure By ANDY HOBBS editor@federalwaymirror.com

Washington state is taking United Parcel Service to court. Shipping company UPS is resisting efforts by Labor and Industries to investigate a December 2011 crash that severely injured a Federal Way church pastor.

The state Attorney General’s Office recently filed a lawsuit in Pierce County, asking a judge to force UPS to release records that could shed light on the cause of the crash. A hearing is scheduled for September, according to a report in the Tacoma News Tribune. Mark Haukaas, 53, was injured about 7:45 p.m. Dec. 14 in the

36000 block of 1st Avenue South in Federal Way. Haukaas was working part time as a UPS helper, delivering packages for the Christmas season. The UPS truck reportedly went over an embankment, ejecting the pastor before pinning him against a tree for nearly 40 minutes. Rescue crews had to use the jaws of life. The truck’s driver suffered minor injuries. A keyless ignition system may

be linked to the December crash in Federal Way. In 2011, UPS transitioned to a keyless ignition system for its famous brown delivery trucks. The system was expected to save $70 million a year and save 1.75 seconds per delivery, according to the Wall Street Journal. However, the driver of the UPS truck that struck Haukaas told a [ more UPS, page 19 ]

Homosexual unions devalue marriage, just like divorce In her May 18 article “Marriage Equality, Christianity and the president,” Amy Johnson futilely attempts to argue for the benefits of homosexual unions by employing reasoning that is hypocritical and therefore self-defeating. She begins by expressing her wholehearted approval of the fact that “marriage is under attack (whenever) men view women as

WRITE A BLESSING

Her swollen eyes had said it all. Bawling for 10 days, Kathleen literally had no tears left when I ran into her last week at a Federal Way landmark. Failing to file relevant documents with the state registrar, she’d just found out that her church wedding 15 years ago to her “husband” was all a sham. With President Obama recently affirming same-sex unions, coupled with Kathleen’s plight, I’m forced to explore this controversial thesis: Is marriage a sacred rite, a constitutional right or just sheer economic gains? Marriage, in the eyes of many, is a sacrosanct ceremony between a man and woman steeped in thousands of years of tradition. While to others, marriage is nothing but a civil right between two consenting adults of same or opposite sex. The term “holy matrimony” is a hard sell to people seeking lawful protection but have no religious allegiance attached to the institution of marriage. Wedding vows can be exchanged at City Hall, on a hospital bed, prison, or a Las Vegas drive-through in less than five minutes without a priest or rabbi officiating. No wonder some are asking, “So what’s the fuss about legalizing gay marriage?” Does Elizabeth Taylor’s eight marriages or Kim Kardashian’s 72-hour, $20 million nuptials make marriage more casual than, say, 30 years ago? If religious ardor is the driving force behind marriage, some will argue that there’s hardly any difference between the divorce rate of Christians and non-Christians. While some same-sex sympathizers readily welcome equal treatment under the law for gays and lesbians, they part company on the brand, marriage, saying the label should be solely reserved for a man and a woman. What if same-sex partners were to be accorded marital rights under the banner “ramirega” or “egairram” – the letters for marriage jumbled and spelled backward? Would that be a reasonable ersatz? Not having any historical or legal antecedents to bring heft to this culture war is akin to a blind person seeing for the first time. There’s absolutely nothing new under the sun. Long before Columbus set foot in America, the berdaches, an androgynous Native American group, were performing same-sex marriage in New Mexico. In pre-Colonial Nigeria, there were “female husbands.” Strip marriage of its religious bells and whistles, and at its core you’ll find a legal contract. Religious leaders may marry a couple, but officialdom comes from the state. While not all of us meat eaters can appreciate a bowl of alligator or kangaroo stew, we sure can respect other people’s gastronomic preferences [ more PALMER page 5 ]

Democrats fight to keep power And they’re off and running! The candidates have now officially filed in what may become one of the most important election cycles in years, and there were some surprises. One of the biggest was right here in Federal Way, as City Councilman Roger Freeman shook up the political matrix by filing against Republican incumbent State Rep. Katrina Asay. Freeman filed as a Democrat. Rick Hoffman also filed as a Democrat for the same position, but that had been expected. Freeman’s filing was not. Democrats hold only a 56-42 margin in the state House, and Republicans talk openly about winning six to nine seats. Freeman’s sudden interest suggests that the push for him to run may have come from Olympia and House Speaker Frank Chopp as part of the Democratic strategy to retain control of the House. Freeman was elected to the city council two years ago. Some viewed his election as preparatory to running for higher office. However, he has been a low-key council member and has not demonstrated the ambition many had anticipated. His late entrance gives him an uphill battle as Asay has already been working on her re-election for many months. She has literature, endorsements and held her campaign kickoff a few weeks ago. Hoffman had planned to run for position one, which is being vacated by Mark Miloscia in his run for state auditor. Hoffman chose to defer to other Democrats and run for position two held by Asay. Freeman’s filing means there will be a split among Democrats in a top-two primary. Both Freeman and Hoffman will have

to spend extra money to advance to the general election while Asay raises, and saves, money before facing the Democratic nominee. This race now looks important to both parties and may rival position one for spending. By getting Freeman into the race, Democratic leaders may also have been trying to keep Republicans from spending significant amounts on position one. Now, Republican strategists and donors will also have to defend position two and Asay. One of the more interesting races may be for the State Supreme Court, where three big names are all in the same race. Former Justice Richard Sanders, former Pierce County Executive John Ladenburg and current Superior Court Judge Bruce Hillyer. Hillyer is well connected in King County politics and was the Democratic nominee for King County Executive several years ago. He may split votes with Ladenburg, a fellow Democrat. Sanders will have the conservative vote to himself. Although not a surprise, Dale Washam filed to retain his Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer position. Since he was first elected, Washam has been on the front page of the newspaper for lawsuits filed by his employees and other allegations of misconduct. An attempt to recall him did not get enough signatures. His filing ensures a visible and potentially volatile campaign. Well known Tacoma-area politicians Spiro Manthou, Tim Farrell and Mike Lonergan along with Billie O’Brien, who works in the assessor’s office, have filed to run against him. The Senate is under nominal control of the Democrats by a 27-22 majority. But three [ more ROEGNER page 5 ] Bob Roegner

property, and whenever clergy sleep with ‘preaching groupies.’” Amy, I could not agree more. It is saddening that the divorce rate has been skyrocketing, and that high incarceration rates and low wages harm marriages. When one such as you laments such facts, she does so because they represent the devaluing of an institution society should and does prize very highly: marriage. For example, I would assume

that Johnson bemoans the high divorce rate because statistics prove that children who live without either a mother or a father suffer emotionally, mentally and spiritually. But, if that is the case, then why does she so ardently advocate for unions that would ultimately result in a great number of children growing up in households where either a mother or a father is absent? Yes, divorce devalues the

institutions of marriage and the family. So do homosexual unions. Permitting two men to “marry” and raise children greatly devalues the role of a mother. “A child doesn’t really need a mother; a man can provide everything she can.” Similarly, a household comprised of two women proclaims, “A child doesn’t really need a father; a woman can play that part just fine.” This is entirely false. A father

provides for his children what a mother never can, and a mother what a father never can. To minimize these differences is to do violence to a timeless institution that prides itself on complementarity. Johnson’s argument hinges on the fact that “straight people have mucked up the institution of marriage just fine on (their) own.” Therefore, nothing worse can happen by allowing homosexuals to “marry” each other.

to how best to mitigate this growing predicament for their adherents. Some pastors are performing “covenant ceremonies” — pseudo-wedding rites — to create some semblance of marriage. But could this arrangement bump heads with church and state? There have been many global monumental undertakings over the past 50 years that once sparked major firestorms; namely, the interracial marriage law, Stonewall uprising, in-vitro fertilization, China’s onechild policy, and Mandela’s instituting gay marriage in South Africa’s constitution. Like the aforementioned issues, will we look back in history and see same-sex marriage as a non-issue or an aberration? Only time will tell.

He was grateful for the people who responded to his needs. Right in the middle of health problems, financial problems, and being homeless, he started and completed minority scholarships. He was politically active, pushing for minority opportunity. He never stopped planning on how to help others, even when he needed help.

The owner of the Village Inn Restaurant would give him a pass on a meal. The local UPS store made sure he got his mail, even when he could not pay. A local pastor took him into his home for several weeks. He and his wife counseled and prayed for him.

Life is a highway: I live on a freeway in Federal Way How would you like to live on a freeway? I don’t and I am sure you wouldn’t either. I have lived on 21st Avenue SW and 305th Street SW for 50-plus years. It was always a small quiet country road, but in the past couple of years, our road department has allowed it to become a freeway starting at 6 a.m.

[ ROEGNER from page 4] Democrats sided with Republicans to control the budget last session. With conservative Democrats voting with the Republicans, the Republicans really only need to win a couple of seats currently held by Democrats. They are eyeing the District 25 seat in Puyallup that Jim Kastama is vacating, and hope to take out longtime Olympia fixture Mary Margaret Haugen in District 10, which is north of Everett. If the Republicans take the Senate and the governor’s office, Speaker Chopp may become the most important Democrat in state government if he is able to hold on to the House and force compromise. It’s going to be a fun year in politics.

School custodian still on paid leave after escaping death By ANDY HOBBS editor@federalwaymirror.com

A longtime custodian at Thomas Jefferson High School who nearly died in a drug-related incident remains on paid administrative leave. On April 11, The Mirror posted the story “Federal Way teacher brings dead custodian back to life.” Monica Watchie, the emergency instructor at Thomas Jefferson, was honored at a Federal Way School Board meeting for performing life-saving CPR on the 50-year-old custodian. The incident occurred about 2:30 p.m. March 2, when the school’s chief custodian was found unconscious and not breathing. Watchie administered first aid and, according to principal Liz Drake, brought the custodian back to life. Watchie, who is also a firefighter, teaches the state’s only high school EMT first responder program. Both Watchie and Drake declined further comment on the incident because

the custodian was under investigation. The custodian, an employee at the school for more than 20 years, was placed on paid leave immediately for allegations of engaging in inappropriate conduct. Upon learning this information after publication of the initial report, The Mirror filed a records request with Federal Way Public Schools in mid-April. The Mirror is not naming the custodian because the case is still under investigation. Heavily-redacted documents were eventually released last week and revealed the following: • The custodian is believed to have ingested a substance that may have caused him to collapse in an office at the school. An interview by human resources suggests the custodian planned to help a fix the car of a former student, a recent graduate of the high school who was present when the incident took place. • The investigation by the

school district will determine whether the custodian violated Policy 5201, which addresses drugs in the workplace. The policy states that using, possessing, distributing or being under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances will not be tolerated in the school district. • A toxicology report was sought from the Washing-

ton State Patrol crime lab. A redacted copy of “Opana information from Drugs. com” was included in a packet of information on the investigation, as provided by the school district. Opana is a name-brand version of the narcotic oxymorphone. This prescription opioid treats moderate to severe pain. Federal Way police

a selection of fine restaurants and catering

confirmed the 911 call from March 2 that reported the custodian as being medically unresponsive. South King Fire provided medical aid and the custodian was transported to Highline Medical Center. He left the hospital against medical advice the same day, according to documents. A police investigation on any criminal aspects in this

Federal Way schools brace for less federal funding By GREG ALLMAIN gallmain@federalwaymirror.com

After being able to give a somewhat sunny budget recommendation to the Federal Way Public Schools (FWPS) board of directors on May 8, Sally McLean was back with more budget news during the school board’s May 22 meeting. This time, the news was

not so sunny. There will be more hits to the school district’s budget going forward, this time because of reductions in federal funding, which at $16.8 million annually, makes up for approximately 8.2 percent of the district’s budget overall. McLean, the assistant superintendent of business services, described

some of the legislation that came as a result of last summer’s debt limit ceiling debate in Washington D.C. McLean said one of the new outcomes is going to be “sequestration” of federal funds. “Our federal funds are now subject to sequestration. So when you go onto Wikipedia, you get a late Latin term, ‘sequestro’,

which means ‘set aside.’ In the early Latin, it means ‘mediator’ or ‘trustee.’ So it’s going to be set aside until they figure out how to do the $1.2 trillion reduction,” McLean said. “In the definition of Congress, sequestration triggers across the board automatic reductions. So funding is not set aside or subject to mediation, it’s eliminated.” McLean said the sequestration reductions are estimated to be anywhere between 7.8 percent to 9.1 percent, which would result in approximately a $1 million loss for FWPS annually moving forward. For the immediate future, McLean said the district would be able to cover the loss for the 2012-13 school year, through carrying over

previously unused federal funding and using other funding sources available to the district. The year after will be different, she said. “We will undoubtedly need some program modifications and reductions as a result of this in 2013-14,” she said. The district’s head financier did note that this sequestration can be avoided through Congressional action, but there’s a limited timeframe for that to happen because the sequestrations will take effect on Jan. 2, 2013. One area that this sequestration process could potentially impact FWPS is through Title I funds. Title I funds are apportioned to districts that have a higher than average poverty rate

within the district. McLean noted that Title I funds are, for now, increased by approximately $800,000 for the district. If and when the sequestration takes effect, that gain of $800,000 is likely to be eliminated. School board director Angela Griffin was concerned about this development. “The $800,000 we’re getting because of the need we have will now be cut, but we’ll still have to figure out how to fulfill that need?” Griffin asked. McLean answered in the affirmative, but still ended on a positive note. “I wanted to bring this to you because it’s a big deal, but on the other hand, I want to tell we’ve got it under control,” she said.

Local veteran shares her stories on TAPS and a surprising job By GREG ALLMAIN gallmain@federalwaymirror.com

Perhaps one of the most mournful songs out there, TAPS, is used as the official song for commemorating the dead for the various branches of the United States military. While the song itself is wellknown, 91-year-old Navy veteran and Federal Way resident Dr. Mary Leason wants to make sure that people know the history of the song itself.

[ VETERAN from page 1] motion photography school in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, and then I was shipped to Japan, where I was in an intelligence unit.” Newton said his intelligence unit in Japan was shut down and operations were shifted to Korea. He was then transferred to a medical research lab, where he ended up with a strange assignment. “I became the photographer, and that mostly comprised (taking photos of) autopsies, operations, photomicrography. I guess I saw about 200 autopsies in that period of time,” he said. His first go-around finished in 1959, and he stayed in the active reserves until 1962. During this first intermission in his military career, Newton said he put his work with the intelligence gathering unit to good use, serving as a private detective in the Los Angeles area. “I ended up on surveillance most of the time, which also meant going in and testifying in court,” he said. “And probably the most famous person I testified for was Audrey Hepburn. Wonderful lady. She was just as gracious and unassuming off stage as she was on stage. Really a fabulous star.” Newton re-enlisted in 1971 as the war in Vietnam ramped up. He said he felt compelled to get back in, considering the fact that many people were draft dodging at the time. He gave up a managerial position at a manufacturing company to come back to serve his country. “I went back in the service in 1971 as a private. I lost all my rank, had to go through Basic Training again. I was called ‘Grandpa’ in the unit,” he said with a small chuckle. “I had come back to go into rotary pilot school (helicop-

ters), to do what they called ‘dustoff,’ where they’d take the helicopters into combat zones. But they said I was too old for that.” Instead, he was sent back to Asia, specifically Korea, to be an investigator for the club system there. He traveled to every club from the Demilitarized Zone in the north to clubs located in the far south of the country. He said after his second time in Korea he was supposed to become a nuclear budget analyst, but that position was eliminated while he was still en-route back to the U.S. He ended up in Fort Lee, Va., to go through Club Management School, and then was sent out to Fort Ord, Calif., to manage the club system there. He was then sent to Germany to manage the club system in a number of cities there. He still recalls one particular club in Schaufenberg, Germany, where he caught a veteran soldier redhanded, stealing money. “One club manager in that system..had 19 years in the service. He was a Sergeant First Class, but he

ended up going to Leavenworth (Kansas, where a famous military prison is located),” Newton said. One other memory that sticks out for the 74-yearold Newton was allowing part of the Jewish community in Munich to use the club there for part of their Seder/Passover observance. “I had to give up part of the kitchen so they could make it kosher,” he said. Newton had issues with his spine that sidelined him for the rest of his career after he got back from Germany, but one positive of that was the fact he got to meet a famous American general from World War II. “I actually worked down the hall from General Omar Bradley. What a man he was. One of the best orators I’ve ever known. He could sit, and it didn’t matter what he was talking about, you’d sit there spellbound,” Newton said. Like any good soldier, Newton downplays his four decades plus of service to his country. “I don’t think it’s really anything special, but it was pretty diversified.”

army. Instead, the army allowed the father to pick one musician to play the music discovered in his son’s pockets, and that musician happened to be a bugler. Leason’s ties to the Armed Forces began in World War II, when she served in the Navy as a nurse, she said. Her husband John, now deceased, had come to American from Australia to avoid the draft that was instituted in the British controlled countries at the time. Unfortunately for him, America’s draft caught up to him instead, Leason said. When he was shipped overseas, Leason enlisted in Chicago, and got an early taste of military life. “We were at the Chicago sta-

tion... There were 150 girls from all over, we all met at 5 a.m. for the train to go to boot training at Hunter College in New York... All of a sudden, an officer comes, and out of the 150 girls, he hands me a big, long envelope,” Leason said. The officer disappeared into the crowd as she tried to hand the letter back, believing the officer was mistaken in handing it to her. She opened the letter, and discovered a surprising fact. “It says, ‘To the bearer of this letter, you are in charge of taking care of 150 girls, putting them on the train and mustering them’,” she said. “We got them all in, got them all settled, and had our boot training at the Bronx.”

Softball: Back to state for Raiders 4A Tennis: Stewart ready for state title

TJ’s fourth-straight trip comes after third-place finish at district tourney By CASEY OLSON sports@fedwaymirror.com

The Thomas Jefferson Raiders have developed into one of the top fastpitch programs in Washington. For the fifth time in the last six years and fourth in a row, TJ will play at the Class 4A State Fastpitch Tournament. The Raiders (24-4) finished in third place at last weekend’s West Central/Southwest District Tournament, where Jefferson’s 18-game winning streak came to an end with a 9-7 semifinal loss to Rogers. The Raiders finished 3-1 at the district tournament, which was held Friday and Saturday at the Sprinker Recreation Center in Spanaway. Sixth-ranked Jefferson will travel to Spokane’s Merkel Park for the Class 4A tournament. The Raiders will open at 10 a.m. against Central Valley from Spokane. The Bears are the third seed out of the Eastern Washington regional after losing to Walla Walla in the semifinals, 10-0. Central Valley won the Greater Spokane League title and beat Mead in the third/ fourth game, 9-1, at regionals.

The Todd Beamer baseball team is heading across the mountains to play in the Class 4A State Semifinals. The Titans (18-6) assured themselves a spot in the state’s final four with two wins Saturday

at Heidelberg Park in Tacoma over Jackson and Tahoma. Beamer shut out Jackson, 4-0, and slipped by South Puget Sound League foe Tahoma in the quarterfinal nightcap, 3-2. The Titans will now travel to Pasco’s Geza Stadium where they will see another familiar face.

Mitch Stewart doesn’t have to be out practicing every day for the Federal Way High School boys tennis team. No one would blame the sophomore if he just skipped competing for the Eagles. Stewart is legitimately one of the Mitch Stewart best youth tennis players not only in the state of Washington, but in the nation. Currently, he is the 12th-ranked under-16 player in the United States and the No. 1 player in the Pacific Northwest. He is going to be able write his ticket to pretty much any college tennis program in the country. But first, Stewart wants to become the first-ever state tennis champion from Federal Way High School and add the Class 4A title to his alreadyimpressive tennis resumé. “It’s been really cool representing Federal Way,” Stewart said. “That’s why I play. Winning would be pretty big for me and really good for my school. I’m taking it really seriously.” The state championship is something that eluded Stewart last year during his freshman [ more stewart page 16 ]

One of the best girl golfers to ever step foot at Decatur High School ended her impressive four-year run Wednesday with a sixth-place finish at the Class 3A State Tournament in Spokane. Senior Amanda Beyke shot a two-round total of 150 at the Esmeralda Golf Course. Beyke, who was playing in her fourth state golf tournament, shared the lead after the first round of play Tuesday with Peninsula’s Rachel Lewis and Holy Names Academy’s Sammie Pless. The trio all shot Amanda Beyke matching 73s at Liberty Lake. But Beyke followed Wednesday with a 77 to fall into sixth. Mount Spokane sophomore Sierra Bezdicek beat sister Savana in a playoff to win the individual state title. The sisters finished the 36hole tournament tied at 146, four ahead of Beyke. The sixth-place finish was the second of her Decatur career. Beyke also finished sixth as a sophomore. As a junior, she finished in third place two strokes behind Lewis at the Liberty Lake Golf Course in Spokane. During her four-year Gator career, Beyke finished 38-2 in individual dual matches, including 9-1 this season. She has also won the Twin Lakes Junior Club Championship the last six years in a row. Beyke will play golf on scholarship in the fall at Seattle Univer-

sity. The Redhawks play matches all around the country. This season alone, Seattle U played at some of the best golf courses in Idaho, Oregon, California, New Mexico, Arizona and Hawaii. Beyke’s younger sister, Celia, also had an impressive run at the 2012 state tournament. Celia Beyke, a freshman, ended up in 11th place with a two-round total of 155 at Esmeralda. Celia Beyke shot an openinground 77 Tuesday and followed with a 78 on Wednesday. Decatur teammate Amanda Lehman failed to make the cut after shooting an opening round 101 Tuesday. The threesome helped the Gators finish up in fourth place overall in the Class 3A team standings with 64.5 points. Hanford won the team crown with 121.5 points, followed by Mount Spokane (95.0) and Mercer Island (82.5). • Federal Way High School’s Emily Victory and Jefferson’s Hanna Yi and Sarah Yu all made the cut during the Class 4A girls tournament at MeadowWood Golf Course in Spokane. Victor and Yi tied in 34th place with matching totals of 171. Both fired opening-round 87s and followed with 84s on Wednesday. Yu ended up in 36th place overall with a 173. Beamer’s Amanda Imm (90) and Jefferson’s Jiny Lee (90) both failed to make the cut after the first round. • Thomas Jefferson’s A.J. Seo failed to make the cut at the Class 4A boys tournament at Hangman Valley Golf Course in Spokane. Seo shot a first-day round of 88 to miss the cut by six strokes.

Beamer’s Alanna Vann (right) finished second in both the 100 and 200 meters at the district meet and will compete in both events at the state championships at Mount Tahoma HS. casey olson, The Mirror

Richard G. Thoreen Richard G. Thoreen entered the Kingdom of Heaven on May 3, 2012, at the age of 70. He was a loving husband & father leaving behind his wife Anne and three children Kari (Seattle), Gretchen (Sun Valley) & Tim (Bellingham). Rich was a 1960 graduate of Clover Park H.S., and held Bachelors & Masters degrees in education & fine arts from the University of Puget Sound. He was a gifted athlete and received a full college scholarship. He was also a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. He furthered his desire to learn by attending Pacific Lutheran University to complete his credentials in school administration. He enjoyed spending time in the outdoors and had been both an active snow and water skier when he was younger. His great love was the water – both in it and on it – which led him to become a certified commercial scuba diver. He spent several summers commercial fishing in Alaska and others sailing in the San Juan Islands. Having taught fine arts at Thomas Jefferson High School for more than two decades, Rich was deeply appreciated in the Federal Way community as a teacher, colleague, coach, mentor and friend. He retired in 2004 and has since enjoyed playing the piano and accordion, showing his collector cars, golfing, traveling and making Raku pottery. One of his callings and most passionate activities was his involvement in the "Flames of Fire" Healing Ministry. He always made himself available to meet the needs of others, offering prayer and comfort to those in need. Rich will be deeply missed by all who knew him. A memorial celebration will be held at Northwest Church, 34800 21st Ave SW, in Federal Way on Saturday, June 16, 11 a.m. Remembrances can be sent to Boeing Employees Credit Union (account 3590379456) for an art memoriam at TJHS or the ministry he loved so much.

[16] May 25, 2012 [ titans from page 12 ]

The victory improved Bower’s season record to 6-2 and lowered his already-miniscule earned-run average to 0.50. He has allowed four earned runs in 56 1/3 innings pitched and is slated to take the ball against Kentwood on Friday. Kentwood (23-2) won the South Puget Sound League North Division with a perfect 16-0 record and features an impressive offense led by brothers Cash and Reese McGuire. The Titans will likely see 6-foot-6 Taylor Jones on the mound Friday night. Jones is headed to Gonzaga University and is a perfect 6-0 on the season with a 1.27 ERA. Bower got all the offense he would need in the third inning when they tallied a single run. The Titans added three insurance runs in the bottom of the fifth. Pinch-hitter Taylor Davis led off the inning with a walk, which started the three-run inning. After consecutive bunt singles, Richie Apigo collected an RBI on his only hit to make it 4-0. Lawyer Braun finished 1 for

season for the Eagles. Jackson’s Michael Chamerski held off Stewart, 6-4, 6-4, in the boys final last year at the Class 4A tournament in Vancouver. It’s still the only loss of Stewart’s prep career. Chamerski, who is a senior this season, did not turn out for Jackson’s tennis team this year to concentrate more on playing national tournaments. Chamerski has already signed to play in the fall at the University of Washington. “I guess he decided not to play,” Stewart said. “I wanted another chance at him. I think I could take

3 with a run and Brett Oyer was 1 for 4 with a run. Against Tahoma, the Titans got another huge game from Oyer, Beamer’s senior shortstop. Oyer finished 3 for 4 at the plate and threw 3 2/3 shutout innings in relief to earn the victory. It was the third time Tahoma (17-7) and Beamer have played in the baseball postseason, with the Titans winning two of three, including Saturday’s loser-out contest. Beamer took a 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the top of the third inning, the last coming on an RBI single by Oyer. But the Bears responded with two runs of their own in the bottom of the third on a two-run home run from Jason Smith to tie the game. Oyer came in for Beamer starter Scott Sunitsch in the fourth inning and hand-cuffed the high-power Tahoma offense the rest of the day. He gave up just two hits in his 3 2/3 innings of work. Jarred Prather tallied the game-winning RBI in the top of the fifth on a single.

him down. But that’s not going to happen.” With Chamerski’s absence, Stewart enters state as the odds-on favorite to win the Class 4A title. Stewart sees Gonzaga Prep’s Alex Marcinkowski and Eastlake’s Vincente Veras as his stiffest competition. West Central/Southwest District runner-up Kent Andreasen, who Stewart beat in the final last week, 6-0, 6-3, should also make some noise. The Class 4A State Tennis Tournament will kickoff today at the Columbia Basin Racquet Club and Richland High School in the

ment, the Raiders seemed to be in total control of the semifinal against Rogers Saturday. Jefferson jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first and led 5-2 into the fifth inning. But Rogers tallied seven runs in their final three at-bats to walk away with the win. Offensively, the Raiders finished with nine hits. Senior centerfielder Lexi Goranson finished 2 for 4 with a home run, triple, two RBIs and two runs. Goranson’s solo home run in the bottom of the fifth gave TJ a 6-5 lead. But Rogers scored three in the top of the sixth to take the lead for good. Michaela Patton was 2 for 4 with a triple and two runs and Bailey Rundle and Reno Whitcomb both had two hits for TJ. The Raiders fought back in the third/fourth game to beat Emerald Ridge, 9-5, later on Saturday. Jefferson scored five in the bottom of the fourth to blow the game open. Annalise Campbell finished 2 for 3 with two RBIs and a run and Alex Rodriguez, Rundle and Whitcomb all had two hits for TJ. Katie Jackson earned the win on the mound, scattering nine hits.

Tri-Cities. Stewart opens against Patrick Chung from Cascade. “I just can’t take anybody lightly,” Stewart said. “I am just going to go play one match at a time and not think ahead to the championship. According to Stewart, he played some of the best tennis of his life during last weekend’s West Central/ Southwest District Tournament and, obviously, that’s saying a lot with Stewart’s past success. “I played phenomenal last weekend,” said the humble Stewart. “In the semifinal and final I played two reallly good players

How ‘Bout a Little

Thomas Jefferson senior Katie Jackson throws a pitch during the West Central/ Southwest District Tournament last weekend in Tacoma. casey olson, The Mirror The Raiders earned the state tournament berth Friday at Sprinker with a pair of 7-3 wins over Union and Kentlake. The victory over Kentlake was TJ’s second-straight against the Falcons, who won the SPSL North Division title and beat the Raiders twice during the regular season. Jefferson tallied two runs in the first and two more in the fourth to go up 4-0. The Raiders got a pair of RBIs from Gornanson and Nicole Greenheck was 2 for 3

and took them down pretty good.” Stewart beat Union’s Alex Wallace in the district semifinal, 6-1, 6-0, and dominated Andreasen in the championship, 6-0, 6-3. “I think it all started last summer,” Stewart said. “I have been doing a lot of traveling and been doing real well lately. My ranking has went up and I’ve been doing real well.” Stewart went to Palm Springs in April for a national-level tournament and finished in sixth place. He also attended a tournament in California in February and won the singles title. Stewart has also played in tournaments in Louisiana, Illinois and Michigan. “I have got to go all over and play against a bunch of good players and really gained some confidence,” he said. “It has really gotten

with a triple, two RBIs and a run. Whitcomb was 2 for 4 with an RBI and run. Against Union, the Raiders jumped out to a 6-0 lead before the Titans tallied all three of their runs in the sixth. Goranson had another big game, finishing 3 for 3 with a home run and four RBIs. In total, Groranson ended up 5 for 6 in Friday’s two games, with six RBIs. Campbell, Patton and Whitcomb also had a pair of hits against Union and Jackson got the win.

my game going pretty good. If you get to hit against better players all the time, you get better.” Stewart has even bigger plans for this summer. Following the school year, he will travel to Delray Beach, Fla. to play in the Clay Court Nationals and then head straight to KalamaKainoa Rosa zoo, Mich. for the Boys Junior National Tennis Championships. But Stewart hopes the highlight of his vacation will be playing at the US Open Junior Championships at the Flushing Meadows Tennis Center in New York City. “It kind of depends on

my ranking,” Stewart said. “I might be able to get a wildcard, but if I don’t get a wildcard, I will have to go into qualifying. It’s going to be awesome.” Stewart will be joined in the Tri-Cities by Jefferson senior Kainoa Rosa, along with a pair of girls’ doubles teams. Rosa finished in fourth place in the singles competition at the West Central/ Southwest District Tournament after losing to Andreasen in the semifinals, 6-1, 6-3. Rosa then lost to Wallace in the third/fourth match, 6-3, 6-4. Federal Way’s Lauren Lang and Mina Park ended up third at the district tournament after beating Beamer’s Jenny Hoefel and Kiele Bowman in the third/ fourth match, 6-0, 6-3. Both teams advanced into the semifinals before losing.

NOTICE OF SEPA INTERPRETATION #12-01 (City Project File #12-102044-UP) Citation of Code Provision This interpretation is intended to clarify Federal Way Revised Code (FWRC) 14.15.020 (which adopts by reference Washington Administrative Code [WAC] 197-11-800[3] and WAC 197-11-800[2][e]), which are the two specific exemption provisions that require interpretation. The subjects of the interpretations are: (1) under what circumstances a Change of Use (COU) triggers SEPA; and (2) under what circumstances an addition to an existing building or facility triggers SEPA. Statement of Interpretation Interpretation 1 WAC 197-11-800(3), “Repair, Remodeling, and Maintenance Activities,� exempts developments otherwise exempt when an “immaterial� COU occurs. If a “material� COU occurs, that may cause a project to lose its SEPA exempt status. COUs associated with buildings exempted by WAC 197-11-800(1) and (2), however, are exempt regardless of the nature of the COU. For the purpose of administering this SEPA provision, the following “material� categories of use are established: commercial; industrial/ manufacturing; single-family residential; multifamily residential; and institutional. COUs that occur within the categories will not affect the exempt status of a project. COUs from one category to another may cause projects to lose exempt status. Uses within each of the “material� categories are listed below. Where a use is not listed, the director shall determine which category it fits into. - Commercial: Retail, restaurants and taverns, services, professional office, medical offices, government offices, doctor/dentist offices and clinics, mixed-use developments (housing w/ office/ retail/etc. in same structure), entertainment and recreational uses, parks, day cares, self-service storage, funeral homes and mortuaries, retail-auto repair, animal kennels, veterinary offices, hotels and motels, parking garages, gas stations, and similar uses.

- Industrial/Manufacturing/Warehouse: Manufacturing, tow and impound lots, auto wrecking, warehouses, truck stops, hazardous waste treatment and storage, industrial laundry facilities, transfer stations, gravel batch plants, sewage treatment plants, heavy equipment storage, and similar uses. - Single-Family Residential: Single-family residences, duplexes, townhouses, cottage housing, accessory dwelling units, and similar uses. - Multi-Family Residential: Multi-family residential uses, senior housing, assisted living facilities, nursing homes and convalescent centers, social services transitional housing, mobile home parks, and similar uses. - Institutional: Churches and places of worship, schools and colleges, hospitals, group homes, correctional facilities, utilities, cemeteries, government facilities (not offices), and similar uses. - Adult Entertainment: Any use that changes to an adult entertainment use shall be considered a COU. An adult use that changes to a non-adult use shall not be considered a COU (for the purpose of triggering SEPA review). Interpretation 2 WAC 197-11-800(2)(e), “Additions or Modifications,� exempts additions to buildings and facilities when such additions are equal to or less than the size of exemptions listed in section 197-11-800(1), except not when such addition causes the building/facility to go from an exempted size to a non-exempt size. Date of Interpretation May 25, 2012 Availability of Official File The official project file is available for review at the City of Federal Way Department of Community and Economic Development (Federal Way City Hall, 33325 8th Avenue South, Federal Way, WA 98003), 253835-2607, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Labor and Industries inspector that he tried to start the truck using the keyless ignition system Mark Haukaas after releasing the emergency brake. Parked on a steep hill, the truck failed to start, and the driver was unable to stop the runaway vehicle with the brakes, according to The News Tribune. Labor and Industries officials sought documentation from UPS related to the keyless system. Despite a subpoena, the report says, UPS has yet to turn over any records. On that note, Teamsters Local 174 filed a complaint about the keyless system with Labor and Industries last December, reporting that “the brakes did not work if their vans weren’t running.” After spending months in hospitals, Haukaas returned home in April and began attending services at Maranatha Grace Assembly, the church he founded in Federal Way. According to a family friend, he is still recovering from surgeries for his injuries, which included two collapsed lungs, three broken ribs, multiple broken bones in his face, a fractured wrist and a cracked vertebrae in his neck. “He is improving and happy to be alive, which is a miracle in itself,” his friend Margaret Sackett told The Mirror.

saying those functions include research, hosting local conferences, developing outreach to local institutes of higher education, and continuing or furthering programs to assist veterans in getting work, among other things. The council had approved a scaling back in funding from $100,000 annually to $30,000 annually for the incubator in January, Doherty said. He felt it was appropriate to come back to council for a reauthorization, considering the shift in focus. As it stands now, the incubator

is set to report to the city council on a quarterly basis, along with a once-a-year report, Doherty said. Federal Way Chamber of Commerce CEO Patricia Mullen, who was on hand to answer questions from the council, said that there has been some growth in the area since the incubator’s inception in 2009. “We are receiving more requests,” Mullen said. “In terms of the old business model, there were six to 10 graduated businesses, and a reported 151 jobs created since inception. Our goal (now) is to interview 100 companies over 12 months.”

Councilman Bob Celski was interested in making sure the incubator will still work with businesses not exclusively devoted to technology. Mullen answered in the affirmative. For his second question, Celski asked if there is a financial plan or model available for the council to review to go along with the new shift in focus for the incubator. “The first year in this new model, we’ll be strongly developing relationships that will lead the type of client that would come in with the patents, etc.,” said Mullen, who took over the leadership role at the Chamber in January. “It would be

[ SEX TRADE from p. 1] The general counsel for Backpage.com, Liz McDougall, indicated that Backpage would only continue conversations with the AG’s if they agree not to request for the adult section of the site to be discontinued, said McKenna’s office. McKenna and company decided to make this request public, after Backpage tried to downplay its influence in the trafficking world by saying they are an ally in the fight against the detestable trade. “It’s hypocritical for Backpage representatives to tell the public they cooperate with law enforcement when they’ve been so unresponsive to the chief law enforcement officers of 48 states and three territories,” McKenna said. “Now they demand that we take the most effective solution - the removal of the adult services - off the table before they’re even willing to cooperate.”

rebranding, working in educational institutions.” Councilman Roger Freeman was positive about this new direction for the incubator. “I think you’re sending the right message,” he said. Mullen said the new direction for the incubator has reinvigorated participants to spur business and economic growth in the region. “There’s a lot of excitement around this,” she said. “I have to tell you, the potential for new technology to come into Puget Sound…We’re hoping Federal Way and the incubator will be part of the niche and provide a really good solid base here in Federal Way.”
