Residents clash over intersection safety By Greg Allmain

Federal Way Relay for Life nets $55,000 to fight cancer Skin cancer survivor Joe Penwell of Federal Way dressed as Princess Relay for the kickoff lap at Relay for Life, held June 1 and 2. His friends from Knights of Columbus made sure he wore the dress as part of a bet, after Penwell raised more than $1,000 for the American Cancer Society. He is pictured with Robin Mead, a 30-year survivor of cervical cancer. Read more on page 25 in today’s paper. ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror

A billboard for adult store Hustler Hollywood recently appeared on the stretch of Pacific Highway South between South 348th and South 356th streets in Federal Way. Although the billboard has since been taken down, it sparked an interesting conversation between both Mayor Skip Priest and citizens at the Federal Way City Council’s



Since 2001, the intersection of SW 304th Street and 21st Avenue SW has been a point of contention for residents in the nearby neighborhood. One resident has consistently petitioned the city to install a four-way stop at that intersection. The city had denied the petition every time for the last 11 years. For some of the residents of the neighborhood where the contentious intersection sits, the fight has gone on too long, and they feel one person is looking to cause trouble for everyone else. A few others, however, believe the installation of the four-way stop would be beneficial, regardless of the city’s take on the matter. All these grievances, plus a full city report, were given to the Federal Way City

Council during its June 5 meeting. One of the people who opposes the four-way stop, Chuck Wolber, shared his experiences of some of the strangeness occurring in his neighborhood for several years now. Wolber described a recent incident with the person most in the neighborhood feel is the instigating force in this continued headache for all involved. “The incident in question involved a line of cars moving westbound on 21st Avenue, stuck behind a slow moving truck. The speed was below 20 mph. My wife was behind the truck at the time, and as this lumbering train of cars came up to an individual’s house, my wife witnessed this person backing her car across both lanes of traffic, holding her car there for a full ten count, ensuring all traffic [ more STOP SIGNS, page 27 ]

Rite Aid stays dry in first week of private liquor sales Rite Aid pharmacy in Federal Way sold alcohol to a minor back in April. Now the store sits on the sidelines as private retailers cash in on new liquor laws. The State Liquor Control Board suspended the pharmacy’s license for seven days, effective June 1 to 3 p.m. June 8. Private retailers statewide began selling liquor June 1. The pharmacy, located at South 320th Street and Pacific Highway South, is banned from selling or stocking alcohol during the suspension. Two rows of shelves that once carried beer, wine and liquor sit bare. An orange sign, posted on the cooler’s sliding glass doors, says the establishment violated state law by furnishing

Federal Way girl almost drowns Mirror staff reports

The Daily World in Aberdeen reports that an Ocean Shores police officer rescued a 13-year-old Federal Way girl. The officer, also an Ocean Shores Surf Rescue Team member, saved the girl near a jetty on Sunday afternoon, the report says. According to The Daily World’s Facebook page, Officer Chris Iversen was on patrol June 3 and saw the swimmer in distress about 150 feet from shore just north of the jetty. She began to go under water and Iversen entered the water and made his way out to her and brought her back onto shore. The teen was treated by the Ocean Shores Fire Department and taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital.

King County Council declares June as Gay Pride Month By Greg Allmain

Cops arrest 2 hit and run drivers


June was proclaimed Gay Pride Month by the King County Council earlier this week, in recognition of the LGBTQ community in the region — and also as a remembrance of the 1968 Stonewall Riots in New York. The Stonewall Riots are considered the start of the modern equality movement for the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning) community. “Gay Pride Month serves as an opportunity for us to reflect on our past and recommit ourselves to the fight for full equality under the law,” said Councilman Joe McDermott, the first openly gay member of the King County Council. “I am proud of King County’s record of supporting the LGBTQ community.” Councilmen Larry Phillips and Bob Ferguson also voiced their support of the county’s proclamation. “The LGBTQ community and their supporters have more to celebrate and more to defend with the passage of marriage equality in Washington,” Phillips said. “I look forward to celebrating diversity and equality during Gay Pride Month, and working to protect and advance the rights of gay residents in King County.” For Ferguson, the declaration of Gay Pride Month from the county is yet another way to keep the fight for equality in everyone’s minds. “I am proud to be a part of a government that is committed to ensuring equality for all residents regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity,” Ferguson said. “We must continue to stand up and recognize that no matter who you are, who you love, you deserve to be treated equally in our community.” The council has supported gay rights measures in the past, citing its endorsement of Washington’s marriage equality law earlier this year. In 2008, the county also made an amendment to the King County Charter by adding gender identity and expression to the anti-discrimination section. The county notes the public approved that move with a 71 percent vote in 2008.

This week’s…


Police Blotter Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log: • Hit and run driver found at home: At 3:52 a.m. June 3 in the 33000 block of 39th Avenue SW, a hit and run was reported to police. According to the report, police found the suspect vehicle a short distance away, parked in the driveway of a residence. Police found the driver in the residence, intoxicated. The driver was arrested for DUI. • Another hit and run: At 4:24 a.m. June 3 in the 700 block of SW 356th Street, police responded to the sounds of a collision. According to the report, they found a male walking several blocks away, who admitted to being one of the drivers. The suspect was intoxicated. He was cited for DUI, hit and run, and driving with a suspended license. • Copper wire theft: At 7:20 a.m. June 3 in the 1000 block of S. 324th Street, city employees contacted police regarding copper wire theft. According to the report, the wires were stripped from the park’s field light system, leaving part of that system inoperable. The report notes that video footage was available and was under review. • Mother and daughters argue: At 9 a.m. June 3 in the 33000 block of Pacific Highway South, it was reported that a mother and

Come Celebrate With Us!

her two adult daughters were in an argument. According to the report, the mother believed the daughters had stolen her wallet while she slept. The two daughters countered by saying their mother had come home the night before and went straight to bed, and must have lost the wallet sometime before then. • Liquor in grocery stores attracts thieves: At 11:19 a.m. June 3 in the 31000 block of 20th Avenue South, four males were arrested for attempting to steal $900 worth of liquor from a grocery store. • Just don’t try and buy or sell on CraigsList: At 4:38 p.m. June 3 in the 32000 block of 47th Avenue SW, a man had attempted to buy an iPhone from another man,

but was robbed instead. According to the report, the victim had agreed to buy an iPhone he found on CraigsList for $300. When he met up with the seller and handed over the money, the “seller” ran off. • Child molested: At 6:36 p.m. June 3 at an unknown address, it was reported that a 5-year-old boy had been sexually molested by one of his mother’s friends. • Loud argument over religion: At 9:58 p.m. June 3 in the 1900 block of SW 311th Street, two women got into a heated argument over religion. According to the report, the two women were in a tenant-landlord relationship. As a result of the argument, the landlord threatened to evict the tenant, while the tenant declared

she would move out immediately regardless. • Drunk juveniles: At 12:14 a.m. June 2 in the 2200 block of SW 331st Street, two juveniles were contacted by police regarding an attempted vehicle prowl in the area. While the juveniles were unrelated to the vehicle prowl, they were both intoxicated. Both were arrested. One was released to his mother, while the other was booked into the SCORE jail because he resisted arrest.

Do firefighters play more than work? South King Fire and Rescue (SKFR) is placing another excess levy before voters in August, again asking for money to get one more aid car and close the budget gap. I didn’t vote in the previous one and I don’t plan to vote for it in this election. If SKFR wants my vote, then they are going to have to convince me that my tax dollars will be wisely spent. How can they do this? By explaining how they are the only job in the world where they get paid

GOP hopes to win the big three There will be a lot of new people in charge of statewide offices in January as several incumbents are retiring or running for other jobs. The Democrats appear well positioned to defend their incumbents and have a large pool of candidates for other positions. Interestingly, Republican strategists have focused their attention on winning control of the big three: the state Senate, the House of Representatives, and the governor’s office. They also have good candidates for a few carefully selected statewide offices. In some cases, Republicans didn’t get candidates into the second-tier statewide races until late and may be willing to effectively let some races go to try and win the biggest prizes. If you have both houses of the Legislature and the governor’s office, that’s pretty much the ballgame in Olympia. We’ll see if that gambit is successful. I’m not suggesting who “should” advance out of the primaries. The voters get to decide that. Here are the early picks of who is “likely” to claim frontrunner status. We will cover other races in the weeks ahead. Longtime Democratic incumbent Lt. Gov. Brad Owen will be hard to beat. Two Republicans will try. Former legislator Bill Finkbeiner will battle current House member Glenn Anderson to advance, but Owen is the frontrunner. Secretary of State Sam Reed has a strong field of candidates who want to succeed him. Reed, a Republican who is retiring, is backing Thurston County Auditor Kim Wyman. The auditor’s job is somewhat similar to the secretary of state’s job in overseeing elections. As the only

“name” Republican, Wyman is the early leader. However, some Democrats would like to see a different vision brought to the office. Former State Sen. Kathleen Drew from Olympia seems to have gathered the early momentum. Former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels is well known in Democraticdominated Seattle and could challenge, but it was Drew who got the endorsement at the Democratic convention. She has been working hard, but may have also benefited by being one of the few female candidates running statewide this year. State Sen. Jim Kastama of Puyallup probably killed his chances of support from the rankand-file Democrats when he joined two other Democratic Senators in voting for the Republican budget at the end of the legislative session. His reception at the convention was significantly less than warm or even tolerant. Democratic State Auditor Brian Sonntag is stepping down, and this is a race that in the top-two format could yield two Democrats. Three well-known Democratic legislators — Senator Craig Pridemore from Vancouver, Rep. Mark Miloscia from Federal Way and Rep. Troy Kelley from Pierce County — are in the race. Republican candidate James Watkins has a lot of work to do to increase his name familiarity to match the others. He has the Republican side of the ledger to himself, which could get him into the finals if Democrats split their votes evenly. Miloscia has auditing experience. Combined with his past record of attracting Republican crossover votes, Miloscia could take the second [ more ROEGNER page 7 ] Bob Roegner

Seattle and Bellevue supply more jobs than employees, and that surplus means everything to a city’s economic vitality. It’s better to be a money magnet than a money dispenser. Their economic growth and success trickles down to South King County, yet siphons our area’s job and labor pool. We should not resent Seattle or Bellevue for their roles as the region’s job and population center. What Federal Way can do is think in terms of earning four quarters instead of a dollar. The goal of economic development is to raise and maintain a high quality of life for citizens. In theory, the more businesses and jobs flourish in Federal Way, the healthier the city’s roads, schools, parks and perks become. Economic development is one level of the quality of life equation. A multimillion-dollar project proposal is a sexy and obvious answer, but it’s the established businesses that fuel Federal Way’s economic engines. According to the city, existing businesses account for 75 percent of job growth. Another component of economic development should be referred to as the Boredom Buster. Give the people of Federal Way more reasons to stay here and play. Create a buzz from within the city’s walls. Let the walls vibrate and shake the rest of the county’s curiosity. That’s one way to draw visitors: make the city a happening place. Here are three examples of Federal Way folks actively seeking a higher quality of life. Each idea caters to a specific audience, but when we add up the ideas, they create momentum akin to an ocean wave. The more force Federal Way builds behind these waves, the harder the city pounds the shore. • Food trucks. Last month, Derrick and Eleanor Ellis parked their Lumpia World Cuisine food truck in Federal Way for a lunch shift. This Federal Way couple tapped into a growing entertainment trend. Some cities, such as Tampa, Fla., form weekly festivals around food trucks. • Veterans memorials. A group of citizens began discussions for building an official veterans monument for Federal Way. The first step of the process is finding a site. Last month, Tyler Stewart planted three trees and installed three stone plaques to honor three Federal Way soldiers who died in the Middle East. The memorial was Stewart’s Eagle Scout project. The world needs more Eagle Scouts like Stewart, who through ingenuity has created a place for the community to bond, not just with other people, but with the site itself. • Indoor gun ranges. An indoor shooting range is in the works from Federal Way Discount Guns. [ more HOBBS page 7 ]

During this time, they cook meals, they watch TV, they play volleyball and occasionally respond to a call. Not only do we pay them to “hang” around the play area (I mean, the fire station), we also pay for their filet mignon, lobster and caviar, not to mention their flat-screen TV and who knows what else.

If they want to close the budget gap, perhaps they could do what every other job in the world does: go to an eight-hour shift. The last time I checked, police don’t work 24-hour shifts, and neither do hospital workers. So why is it so important that firefighters do? Like I said, maybe it’s because they “play” more than they work. When you are at work during your eight-hour day, perhaps you can be doing something produc-

tive (like training, etc). I’m sure this change in policy will be more than enough to close the gap. If you want my vote, maybe you can explain this.

Liquor at grocery store slaps my face I am appalled at the greedy decision of our neighborhood grocery stores to begin selling

hard liquor. This new addition to their inventory is – at best – insensitive and – at worst – irresponsible. Insensitive hardly describes their willingness to place hard liquor on the shelves, in the grocery baskets, and at the checkout. Having to work my way past the multiple displays of beer and wine has been bad enough, but grocery store ads are now bragging they are a one-stop shop to “save a trip to the liquor store.” I never go there.

Top 3 tips for Federal Way moms who don’t feel sexy parent- or kid-related during this time. It’s time to rejuvenate the adult, non-parent you. Why do this? We all need time to recharge our batteries and fill up the selves that give, give, give. The more you care for yourself, the more energy you will have for others — like your partner. 2. Schedule time for your relationship. There are 24 hours in everyone’s day, and seven days in everyone’s week. This is 168 hours for everyone. Even if you take a few hours for yourself, you need to also take a few hours for your relationship. This is not the time to solve logistical issues or hash out the budget. This is time to have fun — to do things that nourish your relationship and remind you of your love for each other. Why take time for this? Nourishing your relationship intentionally on a regular basis and creating a strong partnership is a gift to yourselves and your children. If you are a single parent, take this extra time for yourself or to nurture friendships. 3. Take 15 minutes a day to explore your sexuality in a holistic way. Here are some ideas: • Sensuality is about how we enjoy our bodies and the bodies of others through our senses. What does the adult, non-parent version of you like to see? Hear? Amy Johnson

Sex in the Suburbs

Recently, I spoke to about 100 moms at a conference called MamaCon. The conference — just for moms — included TED-style speakers, vendors, complementary spa treatments and the Seattle Mom Prom. I gave a speech titled “Getting Your Groove Back: Sex for the Exhausted Mama.” My advice was not as much about sex as it was about self-care. Moms who find themselves over-scheduled and under-nurtured don’t find themselves with a lot of leftover time and energy to feel sexy. It’s challenging to be your most romantic, fun-loving, sexy self when you’re exhausted. A marriage or partnership that includes young children, growing children or teens provides extra challenges to keeping one’s intimate life intact. So, what’s a well-meaning mama to do? Taking care of your sexual self isn’t about botox and boob jobs. It’s about slowing down, paying attention and making time. Here are my top three tips to take charge of your self-care and your sexuality. 1. Schedule time for yourself. Seriously. Put a self-care appointment on your calendar for at least two hours a week and treat it with the same importance you would treat a doctor’s appointment for your child or a meeting at work. In addition, don’t do anything

[ HOBBS from page 6] A banner announcing the range is hanging on an empty building on South 324th Street, with a work crew seen bustling in and out the side door. Another local entrepreneur, Robert Piel, has announced plans last month to build an indoor shooting range. If and when they open, the gun ranges will be the safest spots in Federal Way. The average gun owner behaves responsibly. Average gun owners in Federal Way, and there are many, must leave their hometown to play with their toys in another city. Gun ranges will give these residents, and gun owners from across the region, a reason to hang out in Federal Way.

Playing on the job A letter in today’s paper (“Do firefighters play more than work?”) has stirred up a buzz online. The letter’s author slaps South King Fire and Rescue, based on his perception of the firefighters’ duties. Readers responded with flamethrowers to scold the letter’s author, dishing out an

Smell? Taste? Touch? • What is a reasonable risk you can take to help you feel more alive? Who is someone safe with whom you can be vulnerable? These things can help strengthen intimacy, the emotional side of sexuality. • Think about what has stayed the same and what has changed in your gender roles since you became a mom. Is there anywhere you need to make a course correction? Being clear about your sexual identity, including gender roles, is healthy. • Are you overdue for a pap smear or mammogram? Using condoms if you’re newly single and dating again? Taking care of your physical health is important. • Is your relationship safe? Is it mutually respectful, mutually pleasurable and free from all types of abuse? If not, get professional help now. Our culture is not filled with abundant role models for being sexually healthy women and moms at the same time. Focusing on these tips can help us reclaim our authentic sexual selves. And what’s more sexy than that?

earful of “the other side.” It’s the price you pay when speaking your mind. As of this writing, that caustic letter is the most-read item on The Mirror’s website. People can’t resist looking at the train wreck. Fire and rescue service is like an insurance policy. I’m glad it’s there. If my family were in danger, I’d want all sirens blazing their way to my home, pronto. Firefighters do play recreational games during down time. Every job spends its downtime differently. Did you make a personal phone call, or get a haircut, or take a coffee break, while on the clock this week? Did you step outside for a few smoke breaks? Are you reading this column right now to avoid doing real, meaningful work? At least these firefighters exercise when waiting for the next call to help the public, which surely wants its heroes buff and toned when coming to the rescue. Every job is worth doing right. Got time to lean, got time to clean.

[ ROEGNER from page 6] spot if he takes a big share of the Democratic vote in voter-rich King County and is able to take votes from Watkins. But the early frontrunner is Pridemore, who got the party convention endorsement. Attorney General Rob McKenna is leaving to run for governor. Democratic King County Councilman Bob Ferguson will face Republican King County Councilman Reagan Dunn in November for the job. The question is whether Republican Stephen Pidgeon will take enough votes from Dunn to harm his campaign. While Pidgeon is more interested in the gay marriage initiative, his participation makes Ferguson the frontrunner at this

point. Both Ferguson and Dunn supported gay marriage when the issue came before the King County Council. Smart move on Dunn’s part, as it neutralized the issue in Seattle, but it played a role in Pidgeon entering the race. The primary is where the party faithful from each side turn out. The key could rest with the independents. Looking strong now and in the primary is important because that determines where the special interest groups will put their money. As always, the three biggest needs in any political campaign are money, money and money.

Tis the season for garage sales By ANDY HOBBS

As the summer begins, so does the season for garage sales, yard sales, rummage sales and moving sales in Federal Way. Whatever you call these sales, they help the budgetconscious consumer find quality secondhand stuff. The best bargain hunters arrive early to get first pick. Hardcore shoppers sometimes pounce for prized items — TVs, furniture, movies — as soon as the seller opens the garage. Publications like The Mirror and Little Nickel, along with websites such as Craigslist, are reliable sources for locating garage sales in South King County. In a classified ad June 1 in The Mirror, one Federal Way sale declared “IT ALL GOES!” Among items offered: a boat, horse trailer and 2001 Ford Mustang. The Mirror publishes these classified ads every Friday. A page on shows sales specific to this area. The list grows daily. One Federal Way residence is hosting a garage sale all day Friday and Saturday (June 8-9) with a promise of “furniture, teen clothing, household items, toys, tools.” Some links lure shoppers with hooks like “All clothes $1.” In one ad, a childcare facility in Auburn is selling baby equipment along with

a Maytag washer and dryer, a treadmill and a small garage freezer.

Helpful hints Here are tips for hosting a successful garage sale. • Advertise. Posting an ad, either online or in print, is a no-brainer. recommends placing signs around the neighborhood either the night before or the day of the sale. Remember to take down those signs when the sale ends. • Organize. Get all merchandise ready to go the night before. • Coffee. Offer free coffee in styrofoam cups. • Color-coded stickers. recommends displaying a legend on a poster that shows what each colored sticker costs. Example: red stickers are 25 cents, blue stickers are $5, etc. • Wrapping. Have some newspapers or bubble wrap on hand for customers who buy breakables. Those plastic bags from the grocery store might be handy too. • Prices. Be realistic with your prices. Maybe offer a deal for the second half of your sale, such as “everything is half-price after 3 p.m.” Prepare for hagglers and don’t accept a price you think is unfair. Just remind yourself if the sale is intended to make a lot of money, or rid your home of unwanted stuff.

Human trafficking: sues the state over law By Greg Allmain, the website under fire for its adult services sections, fired a volley back at Washington state this week with the announcement of a lawsuit. Backpage is suing Washington over an anti-human trafficking law recently enacted in the state. The move seems especially egregious to law enforcement officers, among


feelings of the clerks and service personnel who will have to handle the hard stuff, if they want to keep their jobs, regardless of their attitude toward liquor. Irresponsible is the best way to describe the stores’ greedy attitude, since it will now be so much easier for susceptible people to be more easily tempted to spend money on liquor instead of milk, meat or clothing. Irresponsible is the only way to describe the decision to place hard liquor in front of the numerous children who regularly accompany parents on grocery-shopping expeditions. True, the bottles are sealed and it’s not a saloon, but the repeated exposure implies (incorrectly) that hard liquor is as acceptable and healthy as carrots and cheese. Irresponsible is bragging about making the purchase of liquor so easily available that people cannot resist. Stores adding liquor are apparently looking only at net profit, but they have a responsibility toward the betterment of our community. If they make liquor increasingly available, they should be held morally (if not legally) accountable for the ensuing rise in DWIs, DUIs and accidents. No, I’m not pushing for prohibition, but liquor should not be slapping us in the face every time we go for a loaf of bread.


them state Attorney General Rob McKenna, because of Backpage executives’ recent claims of being allies in the fight against human trafficking. “They filed a lawsuit to kill a law written to reduce the number of children posted for sale online,” McKenna said. “On behalf of the people of Washington state, and on behalf of human trafficking victims everywhere, we will forcefully defend this groundbreaking law.” McKenna references Senate Bill 6251, which “makes it a crime to advertise minors for commercial sex acts and provides an affirmative defense if identification is checked before sex ads are placed online.”

The increasingly notorious website claims it can’t be held responsible for the ads placed on its site. Backpage only charges for the ads to be placed, but does not create the content of the ads themselves. McKenna’s office announced in 2011 that more than 50 cases of human trafficking involving children had taken place through Backpage’s adult services section. Those cases spanned across 22 states and over the course of three years, according to the AG’s office. The number has grown since the story first broke, as other media and bloggers have added to the case numbers since 2011.

Voters will decide on same-sex marriage

the day before the law would have gone into effect. “The current definition of marriage works and has worked,” said Joseph Backholm, the chair of Preserve Marriage Washington, according to The Seattle Times. State officials will review the signatures during the next week to decide whether legalizing same-sex marriage should appear on the November ballot for public vote in the form of Referendum 74, Friedes said. “The important thing for people to understand is we will need to approve Referendum 74 in order to retain Washington state’s marriage equality law,” he said. “People who


Opponents of the same-sex marriage law blocked the law from taking effect Wednesday by submitting more than 200,000 signatures in opposition of marriage equality. “We have never doubted they would be able to get enough signatures,” said Joshua Friedes, an Equal Rights Washington spokesperson.

Lois Lillian Spane

Lois Lillian Spane passed away on the morning of June 2, 2012 in Kennewick, Washington after recently relocating from Federal Way, WA to be closer to her oldest son’s family who live in Richland. She was 85 at the time of her passing, and was recovering from recent cancer radiation treatments, and the effects from an acquired blood infection. During the cancer recovery phase, Lois continued to have a zest for life, and maintained her matriarchal position within the Spane Family. Lois and her identical twin sister Joyce were born on September 15, 1926 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She grew-up in New Orleans and her childhood experiences and young adult remembrances served as a fertile background for the stories she would later tell her own children, of growing up in the South. She was a consummate storyteller, and her family and friends never tired in listening to her repeat the same stories with her particular flair and deep emotional content that she would impart. Lois was a good student in high school, and worked as a Southern Bell telephone operator during WWII. She met her future husband Frank Spane at a USO dance in 1945, while he was stationed in New Orleans with the Navy. She and her twin sister Joyce got married during a double wedding ceremony at Saint Louis Cathedral, in New Orleans in November 1945. Lois had three children and found time during parenting to help her husband establish Frank and Guy’s meat market, which was a fixture for over 4 decades in the Federal Way area. She loved the romance of the West, country-western music (Charlie Pride and Johnny Cash), and her bookshelf was lined with Zane Grey novels. Lois was athletic, and, along with her twin sister Joyce, won many Catholic high school league sprint competitions within the New Orleans dioceses. When her sons were of baseball age, she unflaggingly pitched them batting practice and hit them countless flies and grounders to hone their baseball skills. Lois had a deceptive slider that was hard to hit when she spotted it on the outside corner of the plate. An avid baseball fan, she followed the Seattle Mariners faithfully, and rejoiced in their victories and was surprisingly philosophical by their frequent loses. Ichiro was her favorite Mariner, and he hit 2 home runs in an extra-inning win over the White Sox on the day that she passed. We would like to think that Mom had a hand in Ichiro’s success that day. She was preceded in passing by her husband Frank Spane Sr., her parents, brother, half-sister, and identical twin sister Joyce. She is survived by her 3 children Frank Spane Jr. (wife Kathy), Tom Spane (wife Felicia) and Joanne Goddard (husband Dan), 6 grandchildren (Jeff, Greg, Tom Jr., Jared, Jennifer and Ashley) and 2 great-grandchildren. Graveside services will be held Friday, June 8, 2012, 3:00 p.m., at St. Patrick Cemetery in Kent, Washington. The family invites you to sign their online guestbook at

FW honors Grammy winner Justin Henderson By GREG ALLMAIN

Music producer Justin “Henny” Henderson, a Federal Way native and Decatur High School graduate, was honored by the city for winning a Grammy Award. June 5 was declared Justin Henderson Day by the Federal Way City Council during the council’s meeting Tuesday. Henderson, a hip-hop and R&B producer, recently claimed one of the top honors in the music industry. He won a Grammy for his work on superstar Chris Brown’s album “F.A.M.E.” His 2012 Grammy win followed up two consecutive years of nominations for other work he’s done with some of the most well-known artists in the business. Mayor Skip Priest expressed his pleasure at being able to recognize a “son of Federal Way.” “As a city, we often measure ourselves in numbers. Crime rates, acres of parks, miles of streets and so on. We would be remiss, however, if we also didn’t consider the quality of individuals in our community that are raised here,” Priest said. “Federal Way may be a city of almost

And we are proud tonight, extremely proud, to welcome back and celebrate the achievements of Justin Henderson, a proud son of Federal Way.” As part of his efforts to give back to the city, Henderson traveled back to Federal Way from his current home in Atlanta, Ga. He spent the past week working with schools and organizations in Federal Way and the region. Henderson spent time with Decatur High School and Federal Way High School students, visited

with the Boys and Girls Club, and worked with the Boy Scouts during last weekend’s Special Olympics in Tacoma. For his successes, Henderson credits his faith in God and the determination he receives from that faith. “The success of my journey was the fact I kept my eyes on the prize and set my goals high. And I believed in God and had faith, and kept walking toward those goals, and never believed that it was never going to happen,” he said. The savvy music producer hopes to continue to make an impact on Federal

Way, sharing a five-year goal he created. “I would love to be able to be part of a situation that would bring a Justin Henderson Performing Arts Center to the city of Federal Way,” he said with a smile. “That’s just one of the goals that we are trying to make happen in the next five years, among all the other things we want to do to bring a lot more motivation and positive spirit to our city and school district.”

liquor to a minor. A sting operation April 18 by the liquor board led to the license suspension. The board routinely deploys officers to enforce liquor and tobacco laws statewide. A 17-year-old girl volunteered for the compliance check. As instructed, she bought a 16-ounce aluminum bottle of Coors Light. The clerk checked the girl’s identification, which stated she was born in 1994. “I did the math wrong,” the clerk said in the report. In 2011, the state’s voters approved Initiative 1183, allowing private retailers to sell and distribute hard liquor. Previously, all liquor sales were handled by state-run stores. Retail giant Costco spent millions to pass the initiative. Consumers have expe-

rienced sticker shock since the new law took effect. When the initiative passed last November, lower liquor prices were expected as a result of competition among retailers. The opposite has happened. Grocers, pharmacies and other stores are selling liquor at higher prices than when the state sold it. One explanation is that the state imposes a 17 percent fee on retailers and a 10 percent fee on distributors. Retailers pass those fees on to consumers through markups. State sales tax for liquor is 20.5 percent — much higher than the standard sales tax of 9.5 percent for general purchases. The state also charges a tax of $3.77 per liter of liquor. Prices on private shelves often fail to include these taxes, leaving customers to discover the higher cost at checkout.

Dr. Lorri Nichols, a Federal Way doctor of chiropractic, has been named “Chiropractor of the Year” by the Washington State Chiropractic Association (WSCA).

College-bound: Megan Stumpf inks with VCU; many others sign By CASEY OLSON

Beamer senior Megan Stumpf will play at Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall. courtesy photo

Megan Stumpf proved to be one of the best volleyball players in the area despite never playing in the postseason. The Todd Beamer High School senior recently inked her national letter to play volleyball at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va. The Rams play in the competitive Atlantic 10 Conference. The 6-foot-4 middle blocker was a terror in the South Puget Sound League for the Titans. Stumpf was voted the SPSL South’s Blocker of the Year for

a team that finished out of the playoff hunt in one of the best volleyball leagues in the state. “She’s a really strong kid that is also very versatile,” said VCU head coach James Finley. “She’s got a block and good shot selection. She hits really well around the block. She’s also a very mature kid.” Aside from her exploits on the volleyball court, Stumpf has racked up numerous academic awards and citations in the classroom. She was a member of the National Honor Society and was named a Washington State Principals Scholar award. [ more colleges page 18 ]

why 75 percent of kids who play organized sports quit by age 13. Sure, there are plenty of kids who just aren’t good enough or don’t really have fun playing sports. But there are also some kids who could be solid athletes who quit because their parents are just too much to deal with. According to an article published by a pair of longtime youth coaches, Bruce E. Brown and Rob Miller of Proactive Coaching LLC, there are five signs of an ideal sports parent, along with five signs of a nightmare sports parent. The duo has spoken to more than a million athletes, coaches and parents over the last 12 years at colleges, high schools and youth leagues around the country. They are actually based in Camano Island. Their conclusions, after all the research, condensed the characteristics of the ideal sports parent to the following: • Cheer everybody on the team, not just your child: Parents should attend as many games as possible and be supportive, yet allow young athletes to find their own solutions. • Model appropriate behavior: When a parent projects poise, control and confidence, the young athlete is likely to do the same. • Know what is suitable to discuss with the coach: The mental and physical treatment of your child is absolutely appropriate. So is seeking advice on ways to help your child improve. Taboo topics include playing time, team strategy and discussing team members other than your child. • Know your role: Everyone at a game is either a


Watching your kids play sports is awesome. It’s just so pure. I’m reminded of that every time I attend one of my kids’ games. My dad came and watched my son play a baseball game earlier this week. He asked me if I remembered all the times he threw me batting practice and how my mom would stand out in the field and shag all the balls I hit. The answer was simple: “Yes, I remember that. How could I forget?” During my career, I played thousands of basketball, football and soccer games, and was even lucky enough to play baseball at Gonzaga. But the home runs and strikeouts aren’t even close to the best memories I have playing sports. What I remember most are seeing my parents at every single game I played, all the rides home and sitting around the dinner table talking with my mom and dad about how things went. I also never remember my parents embarrassing me once with an outburst during one of those thousands of games. Never once. But I guess my experience is far from the norm. I’m starting to figure that out as my kids get older and I watch more and more parents acting like complete jackasses while watching their kids play. I’ve seen it all. Parents yelling at volunteer umpires and referees, parents yelling at their kids, and parents degrading players on the other team are just a few of the atrocities that have led me to sit far away from other parents during games. I can now understand

player, a coach, an official or a spectator. Here’s a clue: if your child seems embarrassed by you, clean up your act. • Be a good listener and a great encourager: When your child is ready to talk about a game or has a question about the sport, be all ears. Above all, be positive. Be your child’s biggest fan. On the opposite end of the spectrum is the five signs of a nightmare sports parent, which is a way bigger problem nowadays. • Overemphasizing sports at the expense of sportsmanship: Parents who are demonstrative in showing displeasure during a contest are sending the wrong message. • Having different goals than your child: Kids generally want to have fun, enjoy time with their friends, improve their skills and win. Parents who want their kids to “get a scholarship” or “make the all-star team” probably need to adjust their goals. • Treating your child differently after a loss than a win: Almost all parents love their children the same regardless of the outcome of a game. Yet often their behavior conveys something else. • Undermining the coach: Young athletes need a single instructional voice during games. That voice has to be the coach. Kids who listen to their parents yelling instructions from the stands or even glancing at their parents for approval from the field are distracted and can’t perform at a peak level. Second-guessing the coach on the ride home is just as insidious. • Living your own athletic dream through your child: A sure sign is the parent taking credit when the child has done well.

“We worked on that shot for weeks in the driveway,” or “You did it just like I showed you.” Another symptom is when the outcome of a game means more to a parent than to the child. If you as a parent are still depressed by a loss when the child is already off playing with friends, remind yourself that it’s not your career and you have zero control over the outcome. I just want to personally thank all the parents who are doing things right. Sports are supposed to be fun and teach life lessons, and it’s actually easier to be the ideal sports parent than the nightmare. Just sit back and enjoy the pureness of watching your kids play sports. It doesn’t last forever.

MLS: Rowe shines in 2-0 win over Fire Courtesy

Kelyn Rowe knew he didn’t have 90 minutes to give on Saturday night against the Chicago Fire. The Revolution rookie and Federal Way High School graduate had seen 25 minutes off the bench May 29 against D.C. United before playing the entire match – 120 minutes – as New England fell to the Harrisburg City Islanders in a penalty shootout in a U.S. Open Cup match on May 29. Luckily, Rowe needed only a few minutes to make an impact in the Revolution’s 2-0 win over the Fire. The 20-year-old midfielder entered in the 64th minute and within 10 minutes he’d helped decide the match, scoring the eventual gamewinning goal in the 69th minute before assisting on Benny Feilhaber’s insurance goal four minutes later. It was a welcome capper to a

hectic week for Rowe, who scored in extra time of the Open Cup loss but saw his penalty kick in the shootout slam off the crossbar. “I was definitely tired, but (head coach) Jay (Heaps) and his staff have been great,” said Rowe. “Kelyn wanted to play the next day and the next day and the next day (after the Open Cup game),” said Heaps. “Kelyn is all go and you love Kelyn Rowe that about him because there’s no governor around him … Fernando (Cardenas) played a lot of minutes, too. He played a lot of minutes in D.C. and lots of minutes on Tuesday night. So unfortunately Fernando had a great game, but he started running out of steam. I knew that

when Kelyn went in, he would add a spark.” Rowe, who was the third pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft, did just that, almost scoring with his first touch when Saer Sène sent him on a breakaway in the 65th minute. Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson charged off his line to deny Rowe on that occasion, but the rookie needed only a few more minutes to make his mark and help lift the Revs to their fourth home victory in six attempts. “He’s been pushing hard lately,” Heaps said of Rowe. “I think you saw when he came into the game, there was a different buzz about him. He almost scored the first time. It was a great run … Then the first and second goals were beautiful from Kelyn. He’s smart, he’s played quickly. We like getting him in those situations where he can be a dynamic attacker for us.”

FW Symphony camp nurtures talent in young musicians By MAUREEN HATHAWAY Special to The Mirror

Spring into summer with the Federal Way Symphony’s classy and sassy Youth Summer Music Camp at Federal Way High School. This year, the Symphony is providing artistry in motion by expanding from a one-week camp to a two-week camp for aspiring vocalists and instrumentalists. The camp features a sweeping

variety of musical instruction for grades 5-12 with one year of musical experience. Both camps run 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 9-14 and July 16-21. The camps are taught by a riveting ensemble of professional instructors. The camp encourages students to dream dreams that can change their lives. Young vocalists, church choir and school band members are invited to pursue their passion for music. Students have an opportunity to explore popular songs, dancing, stage craft, and techniques and strategies for improvisation as related to jazz and swing styles.

Along with Symphony Conductor Maestro A. Davenport, four other top-notch instructors are crafting the Symphony Youth Summer Camp. Davenport has a master’s degree in music from Harvard and has conducted orchestras throughout the world including China, Scandinavia, Russia, Germany and the Ukraine. Vocal instructors include Pamela Casella, a graduate of the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music and the director of Lyric Opera Northwest. She is an established voice teacher in New York City, Germany and Seattle. Craig Nim’s career has included

home, auto, property, home improvement, investment professionals

singing leading roles on Broadway, and as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic and the New York City Opera. Instrumental instructor Todd Zimberg, with a master’s degree in percussion, is the current director of the Instrumental Music Program at the Seattle Academy of the Arts and Science and also teaches music at Highline Community College. Lonnie Mardis is a staple in the Seattle touring music scene performer and has a master’s degree in music performance from the New England Conservatory. Amy Papa, an attendee of the

Relay for Life: ‘Cancer survivors are rock stars’ By ANDY HOBBS

When Dawn Jump was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, she chose to fight. Failure was not an option for the Federal Way real estate agent and mother of two.

It then goes on to list the accessories, which include lingerie, club wear, shoes, novelties, toys, DVDs and erotica. It then gives the address for the business, which, by the way, is not in Federal Way, but in Tacoma.” Priest shared thoughts about the billboard and what power, if any, the city has to regulate such advertising. “This issue ventures into a part of the law where, for better or worse, the courts have limited the powers cities have to regulate because of free speech concerns,” Priest said. “The city, in fact, has no authority to dictate to the billboard owner, Clear Channel Communications, to remove a particular display. However, the court of public opinion does have significant power to influence the decisions of private companies. Clear Channel heard directly from citizens about the concerns with the display, and it appears to have impressed them.” Perry addressed the First Amendment concerns, saying her group respects the right to free speech, but feels a billboard along a busy highway is not an appropriate place for such speech to be placed. “There is…an appropriate time, place and manner for such advertisements. The open streets where the public has no choice as to whether or not they see the ad, is not the appropriate place or manner for this kind of advertising,” she said. “We acknowledge that technically, this billboard is not pornographic, because there is no explicit nudity. It is, however, a clear invitation to pornography, and an introduction to pornography.” The concerned citizen described the detrimental effects that many feel pornography imparts to those who make it, and those who consume it. Because of the danger she and her group feels pornography poses, especially within the public square,

Owned by Clear Channel, the billboard was recently taken down. COURTESY PHOTO she requested the city council to consider creating an ordinance or resolution that would restrict this kind of advertising within city limits. “We do not want to have our children, or even ourselves, unwittingly exposed to pornography of any degree. We demand a community free of this blatant kind of sexual advertising. If we, the citizens of Federal Way, allow this introductory form of pornographic advertising to infiltrate our area, we are opening the door to more graphic and sexually blatant advertising,” Perry said. “This must be prevented in the future. We are a family oriented community.” Perry asked that the council hold a town hall style meeting to discuss it further. Priest gave an open invitation to Perry’s group, and any others, to come to City Hall and speak with himself and City Attorney Pat Richardson. “Whether or not we happen to like the First Amendment, our forefathers actually put it in the Constitution as a right… Freedom of speech,” the mayor said. “That requires us to respect that. And there are limitations on what the city can do, but we would certainly be glad to talk about those issues in specific detail with you or your representatives.”

[ MARRIAGE from page 9] in taxes to pay for highways. But we believe that Washingtonians are fairminded, and we believe that a core value in Washington is that all families deserve respect and protection.” She and her partner, Sandy Mosel, have been married in California, where SmithMosel is from, as well as in Canada, where Mosel was born. They are also domestic partners who raise a family together in Federal Way. “I serve my community,” Smith-Mosel said. “I’m a teacher, I’m a foster parent. When I finish my day ... I don’t want to

worry that my family has a lesser status or less legal protection. I want to be able to rest in the same protection as any other committed couple.” While Friedes is encouraged by the public momentum and poll results that reflect positively toward the passage of the referendum, there is still more that needs to be done. “What people have to do is talk to their friends and family about why marriage matters, share personal stories about gay and lesbian families that they know and make sure that they are registered to vote and vote to approve Referendum 74,” he said. “We expect this to be very, very close.”

(They) then pulled into the eastbound lane and proceeded to give everybody a two-second honk,” Wolber shared. This strange behavior has Wolber and other residents in the neighborhood worried, he said. “After discussing this with all of our neighbors, we all share the same concerns. We’re concerned about where this is going, where this is heading. It seems to be getting worse. It’s not a peaceful neighborhood. It’s getting less peaceful, and it’s very uncomfortable,” he said. One of the few who spoke in favor of the fourway stop was Carey McCulla, citing concerns about the safety of her children as her motivation for wanting the four-way installed. “It’s a problem. It’s a continual problem,” she said. “When you’re coming up 304th, there’s bushes. And kids, they love to run around that corner, and they see that crosswalk, and they don’t think. They just step right out, and there have been multiple times that my kids have stepped out to look and there’s a car coming.” McCulla said the makeup of the neighborhood, with a lot of older folks living there, means that the four-way stop isn’t as big of an issue as it is for her and her four children. “I’m doing this to protect my kids, and I’m sorry for the feelings that have been hurt,” she said.

failed to meet the metrics used by the city. In fact, Perez said, if four-way stops are installed in places where they’re not needed, they can actually be more dangerous. “22 studies have found none effective at controlling speeds,” Perez said in reference to unneeded four-way stops. “19 studies found extremely poor compliance with all-way stops that were not deemed necessary by the majority of drivers. 15 studies found that all-way

stops that were perceived as unnecessary actually increased speeds. 13 studies found that all-way stops increased pedestrian collisions, especially for children. Five studies found that (law) enforcement costs are unsustainable.” Perez noted that between 2005 and 2006, the city installed a series of speed tables in the neighborhood, which greatly reduced speeding in the neighborhood. City traffic engineers found that those speed

tables reduced rates of children with impulse “extreme speeding,” in this control issues. Regardless, instance, speeds of he reiterated his 45 mph or more in a “All-way stops, point that four-way 25 mph zone, from when not used stops are dangerous 70 incidents a week, properly, do if installed when not down to two. needed. not help the With years of data safety of an “I’m sympathetic backing his conclu- intersection.” to the concerns sion to not approve Rick Perez, city about ‘kids will be the stop signs, Perez traffic engineer kids’ and do stuff addressed the conthat maybe they cerns of those who ought not to do,” he are worried about said. “At the same children in the area. Perez time, what we’ve found, said he has children, two from all the studies previof which are special needs ously, is that all-way stops,
