Motorcycle cop wakes up drinking pals on BPA Trail Dozens of walkers and joggers passed a pair of 18-year-old men who were “sleeping” Wednesday morning on the BPA Trail in Federal Way. The men were snoring while laying on the public trail between Celebration Park and 1st Avenue South. One man’s face reddened due to direct exposure from the sun. A few passersby were concerned for the health and safety of the two men, who were out cold. A Federal Way police officer on a motorcycle responded to the call for help at about 10:15 a.m. The officer woke up the groggy guys, who said they had been drinking. The officer handcuffed the men on suspicion of being minors in possession of alcohol. On a shady bench just off the trail: a full bottle of Dr Pepper and a nearly empty bottle of Rich and Rare blended Canadian whiskey. As the men sat on the trail with their hands cuffed behind their backs, they complimented Officer Hodge’s Honda ST1300 motorcycle. ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror

Scammers attack computers through Hotmail accounts By GREG ALLMAIN

A new scam has appeared recently, in which the scammers call people out of the blue and claim to work for Microsoft. As part of the ruse, the scammers tell their potential marks that their computers are infested with

viruses, and that the only way to rid the viruses is through buying an exorbitantly priced ($600) antivirus program. Geeks@Site, a local computer and technical support company run by Chris and Alice Stevenson, has had a number of people come into their office recently as a result of this scam.

Fire & EMS Paid for by Keep South King Safe

Alice Stevenson explained one of the worst cases they’ve encountered so far. Scammers actually infected one man’s computer with a virus. “He didn’t have a credit card to pay them off with, and so, trying to fix it was a real pain-in-the-butt, because they attacked his Hotmail, which was attached to his insurance business,” Alice said. “He can’t do

any business with his insurance, because they hijacked his computer.” Chris Stevenson said one of the ways the scammers look to infect the computer is by gaining access to people’s Hotmail accounts. “Basically, what will happen is that a virus will come in and won’t allow you to login to your Hotmail [ more HOTMAIL, page 21 ]

South King firefighter dies after battle with cancer; memorial service to recognize line of duty death Mirror staff reports

John Moncrief, a firefighter with South King Fire and Rescue, died July 21 from a cancer known to be caused Moncrief from long-term exposure to toxic products of combustion. He was 59. The death has been ruled as a

line of duty death. Moncrief will be honored with full Line of Duty Death (LODD) recognition, according to the fire district. The memorial service will begin at 11 a.m. July 28 at Northwest Foursquare Church, 34800 21st Ave. SW, Federal Way. Moncrief joined the former Federal Way Fire Department in 1989, and retired from South King Fire in March 2011 after a 22-year career.

[ WAYDE from page 1]

Earlier that year, he was diagnosed with cancer, which had already reached an advanced stage. His condition and treatment required several blood transfusions. Blood drives on Moncrief ’s behalf were held as recently as July 5. His family was at his side when he died peacefully at home on Saturday, according to the fire district. Moncrief is survived by his wife, Bev, daughter, Tessa, and son, Trevor.

Vote yes on South King Fire levy The Mirror recommends voting yes on South King Fire and Rescue’s proposed excess levy, Proposition One, which will help protect and stabilize the quality of emergency and fire services. The fire district’s primary job is medical response. The majority of calls — more than 14,000 a year — are for emergency medical services (EMS). The excess levy will help stabilize response times, in which a one-minute delay can mean the difference between life and death. South King Fire and Rescue is in the business of protecting and saving lives. In turn, the public benefits when protecting this critical service. If approved, the levy will generate $3.5 million per year for four years. About $1 million will restore one emergency aid car to the fire district’s fleet. The rest will help cover the district’s budget gap and state-mandated cash reserves. The levy is expected to cost taxpayers 29 cents per $1,000 in assessed property value, or about $5 a month for the average homeowner. The stabilization of emergency services is at stake. The fire district relies almost solely on property taxes for funding. Property values continue to plummet, leading to several reductions in fire personnel and equipment. The district faces further cuts that could end up hurting taxpayers in the long run, should this levy fail. In addition to laying off up to 25 firefighters, these cuts could result in a downgrade of the fire district’s “Class 2” rating, leading to higher insurance premiums for this taxpayer-funded entity. Even in a belt-tightening economy, this investment is worth it. Any added expense, even a few dollars a month, is tough for some households. However, the prospect of a deteriorating first-class fire district is a serious quality of life issue for Federal Way taxpayers.


Republicans clash for state rep. Two Democrats and three Republicans are running to replace Democratic State Rep. Mark Miloscia, who is running for state auditor. We covered the Democrats last week. This week, we look at the Republicans: Federal Way City Councilwoman Linda Kochmar, Federal Way School Board President Tony Moore, and Jerry Galland. The 30th District leans Democratic, but initial conventional wisdom was that it could be Moore and Kochmar who advance to the general in an all-Republican final. However, with Democrats Roger Flygare and Thom Macfarlane appearing more competitive, that view has changed — and the three Republicans may be fighting for one spot in the final, rather than two. That distinction is particularly important to Kochmar. She is more moderate than the other two Republicans and will need to attract moderates and independents — and may be looking for some crossover Democrats. All three are fiscal conservatives, but have some differences after that. Kochmar has the most elected experience, having served on the city council for 14 years and as mayor in the council-manager form of government. Kochmar ran for mayor after the change in government and lost in the primary. She points to city accomplishments in transportation, a new City Hall and Federal Way Community Center as examples of leadership. She is a risk

manager at Lakehaven Utility District and has been active in regional affairs on behalf of the city. Her endorsements include a long list of mayors and council members from surrounding cities. Kochmar opposes legalization of marijuana and is against any tax increase, but would not take a position on gay marriage. She is pro-life. She believes education and public safety are the two highest priorities. She also says she believes education should be funded in a separate budget from the rest of the general fund. In direct disagreement with Moore, she is critical of standards based grading, saying it doesn’t reward high achieving students. With her council experience, Kochmar knows city issues well, and attends almost every public event. She is friendly, well liked and always asks “how are things going” of constituents in her eagerness to help. Moore, as president of the school board, has been the leader in implementing several controversial measures in the school district designed to improve students’ success, including the grading system and how students are assigned to advanced classes. Moore opposes both legalization of marijuana and gay marriage, and is pro-life. According to the Tacoma News Tribune, he declined to take a position on charter schools, and has [ more ROEGNER, page 22 ] Bob Roegner

The Mirror recommends re-electing Adam Smith to represent the 9th Congressional District. The top two finishers in the Aug. 7 primary election will move on to the general election in November. However, The Mirror chooses only one candidate for both elections. Smith, a moderate Democrat, began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1997. None of the other four challengers in this race have shown the credentials that indicate they could represent the 9th District. The lack of serious contenders is a testament to Smith’s strength as an incumbent. Smith presents a clear and level-headed understanding of the issues faced in the district and nation. During his tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, Smith has served as the ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee. In 2012, he co-sponsored a bipartisan amendment to a defense bill, aimed at protecting citizens from government misinformation. On the local level, Smith delivers. He helped secure federal funding for the Triangle Project — a key improvement to the region’s transportation infrastructure. The new freeway ramps at I-5 and State Route 18 will improve safety and efficiency when transporting people and goods. The political mixture of the redrawn 9th District calls for a candidate with realistic solutions. In these divisive times, the citizens need candidates who can work with both sides of the aisle. The district does not need a party hardliner. Voters are well-served by Smith and would be wise to re-elect him.

Please don’t print pro-gun columns on Aurora tragedy Here’s a request for the Federal Way Mirror. Before we have to read the inevitable “blame the victims for not being armed” article from the self-named “Firearms Lawyer” in reference to the new mass murder in Aurora, could you please at least publish a response from another point of view (certainly, the other side is well-represented by Washington CeaseFire) that might

permit such commentary to be presented in a balanced format? On Dec. 3, 2009, I recall quite clearly being stunned that you gave Mr. Knapp a pro-gun column that suggested that the four well-armed, well-trained, brave Lakewood police officers gunned down by Maurice Clemmons were somehow negligent in not defending themselves. In praising the “situational awareness” of the officer that later shot Clemmons (who was actively engaged in the manhunt for a murderer at the

time), Mr. Knapp implicitly challenged the actions of the dead officers, stating: “Did any of the four victims look up and make eye contact with Clemmons as he entered the coffee shop, passing by them moments before he started shooting?” In reviewing Mr. Knapp’s columns since, it appears there is literally no instance for which he won’t blame the victims for failing to have a gun and/or being “situationally aware” enough to use it. His most recent article, following [ more LETTERS, page 5 ]

July 27, 2012 [5] [ LETTERS from page 4] the killings at Cafe Racer, follows the same, blamethe-victim-first logic — suggesting the hero that used a bar stool should have had a gun, and suggesting the musicians should have been armed as well. There is nothing to suggest that the musicians killed at the bar had any notice they were going to be shot. Mr. Knapp appears to simply denigrate them: “it is unfortunate that most alternative lifestyle types in Seattle choose to be unarmed.” He does argue in the entire article that the shooter should not have had a gun. If we learned anything from Lakewood and Cafe Racer (or any of the other gun-fueled mass murders in recent history), it would seem we learned that too many guns in too many of the wrong hands leads to too many deaths — and being a member of our elite class of law enforcement officers won’t prevent the inevitable outcome of having such lethal weaponry so easily and readily available to criminals, the mentally ill, or those simply and instantly inflamed by anger. Mr. Knapp’s Cafe Racer piece attacks the media for being one-sided against his pro-gun opinions. Given the column space he is routinely provided by The Mirror, that certainly is not true in Federal Way. He’s entitled to his viewpoint. But are Mr. Knapp’s editorial views in fact the views of The Mirror as well?

‘Swim City’ has a nice ring to it The July 20 issue of The Mirror had two articles about swimming and swim facilities in Federal Way. There was a front page article about Mike Dunwiddie, the manager of the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center (KCAC). The other article was about the Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club summer swim team, the Twin Lakes Penguins. Last year, The Mirror carried an article about a Twin Lakes neighbor and competitor, also part of the Seattle Summer Swim League, the Marine Hills swim team, who won the 16-team All-Cities swim meet last August (by the whipping Marine Hills gave our Penguins last Thursday, it looks like they are headed for another All-Cities crown).

There is a lot of swim competition going on in Federal Way, especially during the summer when the outdoor pools at Twin Lakes and Marine Hills are in action with 100 swimmers on each team. The Summer Olympics start this week with big name swimmers from our country like Michael Phelps and Missy Franklin participating — and likely to bring home gold medals. When you watch the American swimmers compete, think about the fact that every one of them has likely been in Federal Way at least once in their career because the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center is one of very few venues able to handle major swim events in this country. I doubt if there is another city the size of Federal Way that can boast the amount of swim activity we have (Omaha hosts many major swim events, but they have a larger population). Is it time to call ourselves “Swim City?”

E-postcards can spread the word on Federal Way Federal Way has a lot of good things. We have local natural features of beauty such as the Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier and the Hylebos. We have a community with a variety of social, cultural and benevolent organizations such as the Historical Society of Federal Way, the Kiwanis and the Federal Way Symphony. We have the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center, the wonderful Federal Way Community Center and Celebration Park’s many ballfields and tournaments. We should promote the positive things in Federal Way by letting out-oftowners know about them. Disseminating information about the good things in Federal Way by word of e-postcards would be an inexpensive way to spur interest in businesses and sporting events, things that can increase our economic development, to locate here. One simple way to start would be to promote and use already available email postcards to “advertise” Federal Way’s good points. Here’s an example. During the Olympic diving trials, I asked folks in the bleachers from Nebraska, Arkansas and Iowa if they knew they could send e-postcards, with a picture of the diving platforms at our pool, to their friends for free. All

they needed was access to the Internet, and most people have that, even when traveling. They were very happy to learn about this, as they could conveniently show their friends and relatives the facility and send a message about what they were doing here. At the same time, all their positive comments about Federal Way, sent around the country, were good publicity for our fair city. Maybe they even sent an e-postcard to someone seeking a location for another diving venue. It’s certainly possible. You too can send an epostcard and help advertise Federal Way. Go to www. and click on the “Send a Federal Way epostcard” box on the right hand side of the page. Choose the picture for the front of your e-postcard from the available selection of Federal Way photos. Fill in your name, your friend’s name and email address, write them a positive message about Federal Way and click “Send postcard.” They will then receive by email a photo from Federal Way, a description of the feature and your personal message. There are only a few postcard photo choices now, but I hope the city will add more, like the Denny Cabin, pictures of local wildlife (a blue heron?), a view of the Olympic Mountains from Dumas Bay, etc., to help us showcase our city. I visualize people sitting at soccer tournaments, visiting the sand-sculpting competition, or doing a multitude of other things in Federal Way — and then emailing what they did and how much they enjoyed it to many, many friends via this e-postcard site. Who knows what their good, positive comments may do for Federal Way? It even shows that we are tech-savvy here with the idea of e-postcards. We may be the local postcard leader, as I don’t think Seattle or Tacoma have any, yet. Why not try it and promote Federal Way by sending e-postcards to your friends?

Levy protects rescue services I am writing this letter to ask all concerned citizens to please vote yes for the South King Fire and Rescue Maintenance and Operations Levy on Aug. 7. The fire district cannot charge for the services it

provides. It is totally dependent upon property taxes that are calculated from property values. We all know that home values have been declining. The fire district has lost more than 22 percent of the annual operating budget, and has eliminated 26 staff positions. We cannot afford to let our services decline any further. I am asking all of you to support our firefighters and the emergency services that protect all of us by voting yes. I realize our economy is

hurting and we of course want government to be efficient, but this is too important to ignore. Thank you for understanding.

Citizen joins firefighters in the smoke Serious business requires practice. That’s why I’m voting yes. Come with me as I put on firefighter’s bunker gear, SCBA (self-contained

breathing apparatus) and all other necessary equipment that weighs over 70 pounds — as I begin my journey into the specially constructed two-story simulated disaster building. As I climb the stairs to enter the building, I’m beginning to feel the heaviness of my gear. Here we go. An uncomfortable, claustrophobic feeling quickly washes over me as I am enveloped in a dense, gray smoke. Immediately I want to escape, but I can’t [ more LETTERS page 6 ]

[6] July 27, 2012 [ LETTERS from page 5] even see my hand in front of my face, let alone the way out. Then a radio crackles through the dark and I hear a voice command, “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday … Command this is Engine 62. There has been a building collapse, we have lost our water pressure and we are trying to find our way out.” The training captain hands me a thermal imaging camera, a high tech tool that can “see” through smoke, which reassures me a bit. On the screen, a silhouetted group of firefighters comes into focus as they struggle to get free of wires hanging from a collapsed ceiling. Soon, this same group of firefighters climbs over an impossibly high wall, aided by the coaching of the training lieutenant, whose only means of communication is a voice through the dense smoke. The thermal imaging camera clearly shows me the location of the training lieutenant, who becomes my invisible ally as I attempt to navigate the unfamiliar building through the thick smoke. The firefighters continue on, navigating a collapse that leaves a passage so small only a small child could fit through, over shaky rafters and through yet more wires, as their breathing becomes faster and more labored. Watching these firefighters train, I realize this is serious business. This is real. There’s no room for any mistakes. South King firefighters train so that they are prepared to come to the aid of our community, to rescue us from any potential deadly disaster. On this day, they are preparing for the type of emergency that claims the lives of more than 100 firefighters from across the country each year. These brave firefighters practice over and over every situation and possible catastrophe. Knowing this gives me confidence and reassures me that we as citizens receive the fastest and most thorough action immediately. After a quick critique from the training officers, a bottle of Gatorade and fresh bottle of air, they are ready to do it again. Few people get to experience let alone have the opportunity to observe the intense and dramatic lifesaving drills that our firefighters practice. And practice they do, because when a life or death situation occurs that requires immediate action, we want them doing what they’ve been trained to do. I sure hope you vote yes,

Police officers scrub graffiti off woman’s fence Recently my newly installed fence was vandalized overnight by “taggers.” I filed a police report using the ValleyCom website for the Federal Way Police Department. The day after filing my report online, I came home from work to find a notice from the city of Federal Way telling me that I was “in violation of city ordinances” for “allowing graffiti” on my residential property. The note went on to say that I would be fined if the offending graffiti was not removed within five days, and that the city would remove it for me, at no cost, if I needed them too. I was mightily offended by the wording of this “citation,” since I had reported the incident myself, and had already purchased supplies to remove the spray paint from my cedar fence. It was bad enough to be vandalized, but to come home to find a notice like that on my front porch, after a long day at work — well, I was “hot.” I changed into my work clothes and set out to do my best to remove spray paint from the stained cedar fence. Soon into the project, I spotted a police cruiser driving by and waved. Out stepped Deputy Police Chief Andy Hwang and Lt. Casey Jones. We chatted about the incident, and the fact that multiple other homes in my neighborhood had been vandalized at the same

You can imagine my gratitude. What great public servants we have. Federal Way should be proud of our men and women in blue, under the leadership of Deputy Chief Andy Hwang and Lt. Casey Jones.

I like Kochmar for state rep. For 30th District, position one, we have five candidates who have filed to be our next state representative. Three of them have no experience in government service, and must believe this is a learn on the job opportunity. Many of them have not made connections with state and national leaders, have never secured development funds for the Federal Way area, and have never dealt with government employees, regional transportation plans, or public safety issues.

debate, Linda Kochmar was the one candidate who told you of the specific problem that we faced, and then gave you a plan, not some vague political doublespeak. Linda Kochmar got involved in our politics when we had severe flooding in the 1980s on roads leading to the mall and our major city streets, and no one was pressing for solutions to the flooding. Linda has continued a life of service as she gave her time to our city council, ultimately acting as deputy mayor and finally as mayor. She has consistently listened to the Federal Way residents, and encouraged the Council to reduced the cost of our City Hall by $30 million. She fought opposition to build a community center for all Federal Way, which now accommodates over 350,000 people each year — and it is now paid for. Most importantly Linda Kochmar was voted the best elected leader twice in the Federal Way Mirror polls. Linda Kochmar deserves our vote in the primary, as well as the general election. She is supported by many of the mayors and government leaders she has successfully worked with throughout South King County. She has asked us to pull together and vote for the best candidate. My vote will go to Linda Kochmar.

EMS and fire: Critical parts of public service For the past several weeks I have made special note of the number of fire engines moving along Southwest 320th Street. Sometimes I’m standing in the right place to catch a glimpse of them. At other times, I have seen them responding to emergencies

in my neighborhood. Whether they’re close or afar, I don’t stop to consider whether they’re responding to smoke or responding to a stroke. I’m just relieved to see them and to know that it’s a high probability that a life in jeopardy has help on the way. As I see and understand it, their mission is to respond to two types of fires: the traditional ones on the outside of us that we often see, which are structural, and by default, we direct most of our attention to; and the ones on the inside of us, which are physical, that we feel when the internal disorder in our bodies demand our attention. The latter condition usually falls in the hands of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS), which constitutes the greater part of South King Fire and Rescue’s human resources and, in the process, saves the most lives. Unfortunately, it’s the most misunderstood and by extension, the most undervalued by many of us who make up that 75-80 percent response equation each year. I haven’t seen any structural fires in Federal Way, other than on the news, in quite some time. But I did have an opportunity to visit a neighbor a couple of weeks ago who had suffered an almost fatal internal fire — a vital organ failure. During his recovery, he voiced high praise for the South King Fire and Rescue personnel and their quick action in stabilizing his condition for his trip to the emergency room. I’m also aware of a similar incident that took place several years ago when a community service colleague of mine who, allergic to bee stings, was stung by [ more LETTERS page 21 ]

FWHS remodeling: District simplifies ballot language By Greg Allmain

The Federal Way School Board unanimously approved a resolution to send the Federal Way High School (FWHS) remodel levy to the voters in November. The language of this new resolution for the levy should make it easier for Federal Way residents to have a clear picture of what the school district will do with the $60 million they’re asking voters to approve in November. “The resolution has been revised from the one you adopted for the Feb. 14 vote, to be more specific about all of the three components of the capital project levy,” said Sally McLean, assistant superintendent of business services. “Federal Way High School, elementary playgrounds, and district security equipment.” McLean said she and other FWPS staff went back to make the language clearer, after receiving feedback in the winter from residents. “I worked with legal counsel to redraft this particular resolution, so your explanatory statement can truly include things I consider explanatory for the public, whose only point of information might be the voter’s pamphlet they crack open,” she said. Having clear, concise language in the district’s resolution is important because that language makes its way to the ballot and the aforementioned voter’s pamphlet. Along with brevity in language, McLean noted that some of the numbers

have changed in this new resolution, compared to the one put before voters in February. “We also restructured the $60 million, so that it would be an even $10 million a year,” she said. “There were some comments that came to us in a variety of different ways of ‘Why is this different every year, this makes it too hard to figure out what this is going to cost.’ There was no underlying financial need for me to make it that complicated, so I just simplified it to $10 million a year for each of the six years.” The district’s top financial mind said the school district is mindful of deadlines this time around. An important deadline was missed in February, when volunteer group Citizens for Federal Way Schools missed the deadline to get the “pro” statement for the levy into the voters information pamphlet and related materials. “Given the various deadlines that are in the King County Elections department, this resolution, the explanatory statement, and the appointment of the pro or con committees will all be submitted to King County by Friday (July 27),” McLean said. The proposed $60 million, six-year levy is primarily aimed at rebuilding FWHS. Along with that, some of the $60 million will be used to update the district’s elementary playgrounds, and also update and standardize the district’s security equipment. The February levy was voted down, with approximately 55 percent of voters saying no.

Schools plan to replace student info system By GREG ALLMAIN

Federal Way Public Schools is set to change its student information system in the near future because the current software the district runs will, for all intents and purposes, be discontinued after the 2012-13 school year. With that fact looming, the district approved the company Edupoint to replace the system during the July 27 school board meeting. The student information system (SIS) collects data and registration on students. It includes schedules, and the system software drives the scheduling, said Sally McLean, assistant superintendent of business services. “It’s the core system that we use for extracting information to (the state superintendent’s office),” McLean said. “Our current student information system was first implemented in this district in, I believe, 1999. And that platform…

is at the end of its upgradeable life.” McLean said the district had planned on moving forward with replacing the SIS last year, but reconsidered at the time because of other technology related issues the district experienced at the beginning of the year. Instead, they reset the clock and issued a Request for Proposals in March 2012. “We had five vendors respond,” McLean noted. The vendor that impressed the most was a company called Edupoint (, with its Synergy software. McLean explained the vetting process, saying it was lengthy and detailed. “It was a lot of reading, and a lot of ranking, and evaluating systems. The people who read through those, ranked them from their individual perspectives. We got together and looked at them through the individual and shared rankings. Even at the paper level, Edupoint, at that very first round, was clearly

the group’s first or second choice,” McLean said. “We had 50-plus people from all over the district come in and view different pieces of Edupoint as it related to their work.” McLean said some of the positives in Edupoint’s favor are the fact that it’s a company whose personnel have been deeply involved in educational information systems since 1997. The Edupoint software is in relatively wide use throughout Oregon, as well. Superintendent Rob Neu is familiar with one of the systems that Edupoint’s founder, Bob Weathers, developed for schools. “I happened to be a SASIXP user back when I was a vice principal in Michigan, and I loved the product,” Neu said. School board president Tony Moore expressed concerns over proposed state legislation that would require a daily attendance report to the state, and whether Edupoint would be able to handle such a task. “There is flexibility in the system. Whatever is in the system of a variable nature, is something we can define,” McLean replied. McLean noted the funding for this system overhaul would come from a previous technology levy. Along with that, she anticipates that team members from Edupoint will be on hand at the board’s August meeting to finalize the agreements.

Congressman faces mixed bag of challengers By JOSH NELSON For The Mirror

Dave Christie, a Lake City resident, is running against Adam Smith on a platform of impeaching President Obama and restoring the financial tradition of Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy. John Orlinski, a Polish

native, has been working in Bellevue as a social worker since the early 1990s. He believes that the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was forced on the country and avidly supports Mitt Romney and Rob McKenna. Jim Postma, who has run against Congressman Smith in the past, believes that the current administration is

leading the country “...into a brave new world of socialist control. With government doctors, government hospitals, and government teachers.” Adam Smith said that he would be the best candidate for the 9th District. He has lived his whole life in the district, and believes that he has a strong connection to the community. “I

Candidates for District 9 Congress, pictured left to right: Adam Smith (D), Dave Christie (D), Jim Postma (R), John Orlinski (R) and Tom Cramer (D). COURTESY PHOTOS understand the blue collar family. There’s a bigger gap between the haves and the have-nots in this country and we are losing the middle class,” he said. On July 21, the Federal Way Mirror and Federal Way Chamber of Commerce hosted a congressional forum for candidates in the 9th District. Of the five candidates running for office, four attended last Saturday’s forum at Federal Way High School: Dave Christie, a LaRouche Democrat, Republicans Jim Postma and John Orlinski, and Congressman Adam Smith (D). The fifth candidate — Tom Cramer — was not present. (see voters pamphlet) Each candidate was given two minutes for an opening statement before answering the audience-submitted questions. Jim Burbidge, moderator for the candidate forum, reminded them that there was a time constraint of one minute for answers. He began with a question made all the more real due to the events in a Colorado movie theater last Friday. Is it time for more modest gun control? “It was a tragedy, what happened in Colorado, but the issue should be left up to the states to decide,” said Orlinski. Postma went a step further. “Any high schooler knows you can bear arms. If I were in the audience, I would have wanted a gun to shoot this guy.” Congressman Smith acknowledged the citizen’s right to bear arms as a part of the Second Amendment, but that does not mean one has the right to own a tank or a helicopter. “Firearms don’t necessarily make us safer, in the case of Colorado many other factors affected that situation — including mental health issues,” he said. Christie didn’t address gun control laws, but rather blamed the military programming within the popular first person shooter games being played by

today’s youth. “Why are children in this mindset of violence? It is a reflection of a society that has disintegrated.” Later, the candidates were asked about their views on same-sex marriage, yet another hot topic for Washington state. As a whole, this is an issue where the candidates all agreed. Orlinski said that as a social worker, it was his job to make people happier and therefore he is not against same-sex marriage. Postma confessed that he is a straight man, but can also understand that other people want the right to do what they would like to do. “I’m also pro-life,” he added before his time was up. “I’m a strong supporter of this matter,” said Congressman Smith. “It comes down to the basic issue of equal rights.” Christie adopted a slight Southern drawl and said, “Well, they have the right to be just as miserable as the rest of us.” The inevitable marijuana question made it into the forum on Saturday. Should medical marijuana be legalized on a federal level? “The drug mafia of the last few decades have become the drug capitalists,” said Christie. He also said that instead of legalizing the drug, the people should do away with it, claiming that society is better off without drugs. Orlinski affirmed that he has never used drugs, but that he supports decriminalization – which would be similar to a traffic infraction if caught possessing the drug. Postma gave an anecdote about a vacation he took to Vancouver, B.C. – where marijuana is legal. In a joking manner, he began to mock the issue. “Medical marijuana is a shame,” he added. “We shouldn’t legalize it, if we did there would be no drug lords but we would have this happy day society.” “I support the legalization of marijuana for me-

dicinal use,” said Congressman Smith. “But I struggle with general legalization.” He said that he wouldn’t support outright legalization yet, but readily admitted that the nation’s current drug policy isn’t working and is far from effective. After fielding many more questions, each candidate was afforded an additional two minutes for closing statements. Orlinski said that he was running because he doesn’t like what is happening in Washington, D.C., and that the country needs to elect Mitt Romney and this state needs Rob McKenna. “I want a smaller government,” he said. “Washington has too many lawyers and bankers. They could use a social worker.” Postma took the opportunity to say that the Obama administration has increased taxes and regulations, which is crippling American business. He said they were taking the capital out of capitalism. “You really have two choices,” said Postma. “You can choose Obama and Smith and be poor or choose Postma and prosper.” Adam Smith addressed his long tenure as Congressman for the 9th District, and said that his experience made him the most qualified to represent the district. “We need a middle class approach and a demand based economy,” he said. “I will let your voice be heard, I come from here and I know what it’s like.” Lastly, Christie said that it was more important to speak of principals and not party politics. He said that neither President Obama nor Mitt Romney deserve to be candidates and that his goal is to have Obama out of office by September of this year. “We need a real Democrat in there.”

Monsters Scare You! sign a record deal By JOSH NELSON

Federal Way rock band Monsters Scare You! Pictured front: Josh ‘Pig Pen’ Benson, Cory Fay, Joey Duckett. Back: Brandon ‘Bird’ Ereth, Chad Keller (also pictured at left), Connor Theasen. JOSH NELSON, For The Mirror think of was Devil Wears Prada,” said Fay. “But I also consider us a little bit like Underoath.” These bands stand out due to their sometimes indistinguishable, yet unforgettable screaming vocals. In this way, Monsters Scare You! is quite similar. “We aren’t trying to rip anyone’s style, we want to be alike and not alike at the same time,” said Fay.

The guys also emphasized that they focus on playing music they like. Their enjoyment of their music is readily apparent while they play. Whether it is a shredding riff from Keller on guitar, or a particularly gnarly drum line from Theasen, the level of energy the guys put into the music pours out of them and into their audience.

Nestled at the end of a dirt road, on the south end of Federal Way, is your run-of-the-mill barn. Many of its features are what one would expect: high ceiling, hay loft, machinery...and a rock band. More specifically, Monsters Scare You! is a postmodern electronic rock band. They tuck themselves into the corner of a barn and practice like there’s no tomorrow. Monsters Scare You! consists of six members: Josh “Pig Pen” Benson on bass and vocals, Chad Keller on guitar, Joey Duckett playing keys and electronics, Connor Theasen on drums, Brandon “Bird” Ereth on second guitar, and Cory Fay providing back-up vocals and screams. As soon as the band warms up, you can tell that this is not your father’s rock and roll. “When we started the band up, all I could

[16] July 27, 2012 [ MONSTERS from p. 13] While the synergy of the instruments and electronics is noticeable, Benson’s melodic vocals coupled with Fay’s screams stand out the most. The dichotomy created by the two punctuates key aspects of both the music and the meaning behind the music. Fay, a Decatur High School graduate, said that he knows some of his lyrics are misunderstood and even indistinguishable at times — but that comes with the territory. “And I feel I’m one of the more audible or understandable screamers out there,” he said. Regardless of the band’s reception, the members of Monsters Scare You! are first and foremost friends. During one fateful Warped Tour, It just so happened that most of the guys were without bands and looking for a new project. After touring for two summers, Monsters Scare You! attracted the attention of a local label. In May

2012, the band signed with Hollywood Waste Records, a label with more than 20 different bands. “It’s actually a little bit harder now,” said Theasen, referring to being a signed band. “We can’t involve the fans as much as we might like. They can’t see everything that’s going on and our business is more ‘secretish.’” Benson said that as an unsigned band, they could do almost anything they want, “...but when you’re signed it’s more like a busi-

ness, it feels more grown up.” Although the business aspect of the band has forced the guys to grow up, they still enjoy the perks of touring together as a band. “When you’re all sleeping the in same van as you drive down the coast you tend to learn a lot about each other,” said Fay. “It’s not always glamorous, you’re broke most of the time, and you don’t always get that daily shower.” Benson laughed at this and mentioned that when someone invites the band

Dear Friends,

Working together with city leaders, the legislature and with the people of our community, we were able to accomplish a lot in the past two years to improve our communities. A few of our accomplishments include: holding Sound Transit accountable; two major pieces of legislation curtailing property crimes; acquiring $2.5 million needed to support redevelopment in the downtown area; passed legislation to help a youth organization survive; advancing the improvements of the triangle project at I-5 and Hwy 18. Our community asked, I answered and look forward to continuing to advocate for you in Olympia.

Together We Will Do Better.

In Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, he expressed hopes shared by us all. Hopes that all of us, everyone, would realize the dreams of equality, justice, fairness and economic prosperity, and that our children would have a better life than we have had. Too many politicians in Olympia are out of touch. They are not paying attention to the effects their actions or inactions are having on our communities and our state. Only by striving for a better future, and by not accepting the austerity measures imposed by short-sighted politicians can we move forward to a better life for us all. JFK challenged us to send a man to the moon in a decade, and we did it. The challenge we face today is to achieve equality, justice, fairness and economic prosperity in our lifetime. We can make it a reality. We have waited long enough.

Little League: Two other FW teams place at state



The Federal Way National Little League 9- and 10-yearold baseball team is the best in Washington. National ended its impressive run Sunday afternoon with a 7-1 win over Salmon Creek Little League to win the 2012 Washington State Tournament at Auburn’s GSA Park. The state title for Federal Way comes after the team won the District 10 championship earlier in the month. It was also the second-straight trip to state for National, who finished as the runner-up last season. “This was a great run and championship for this team, our league, these kids and their families, and the community,” said head coach John Sugg. “They’ve worked really hard over the past couple of years since they were little guys to get a chance to do something like this. It’s pretty special stuff that they will always have as a childhood memory, the friendships and memories these guys have are the best part

The Federal Way National Little League 10-11-year-old all star team came close to winning a state baseball championship Monday afternoon. But it wasn’t meant to be. Sammamish Little League downed National in a winner-take-all game, 10-3, at Freedom Field in Mill Creek at the 2012 Washington 10/11 Baseball State Tournament. The state-championship loss came a day after Federal Way beat Sammamish in the first championship game Sunday, 5-1.

Federal Way High School junior-to-be Mitch Stewart added a huge title to his evergrowing trophy case Sunday when he won the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Boys 16s National Clay Court Championship. The third-seeded Stewart, who hails from Miami, beat 13th-seeded Baker Newman in the championship, 6-1, 6-2, at the Delray Beach Mitch Stewart International Tennis Center in Florida. “I definitely thought I had a good chance to win it,” Stewart told “I have been playing good ball lately. I’ve been grinding and my fitness has been good and I am using my legs more than other people. I felt I had to keep fighting and make every point count.” Stewart, who is ranked fifth in the country by the USTA and 9th on the AthleticDNA College Recruiting List, became the first player from Washington to win a clay court boys’ 16-under title since the tournament began in 1967. “This is definitely the sweetest thing,” said Stewart, who lost in [ more stewart page 19 ]

FW Knights snatch World Series crown By CASEY OLSON

The Federal Way Knights 14-under team went unbeaten to win the Triple Crown World Series in Colorado Sunday. courtesy photo

The Federal Way Knights 14-under baseball team were crowned the Triple Crown World Series champions Sunday after winning the prestigious tournament in Steamboat Springs, Colo. The Federal Way Knights finished 7-0 during the five-day tournament and blew away the Easton A’s from San Diego, 13-0, in the championship. The A’s are coached by former Major League Baseball all star and World Series champion pitcher Dave Stewart.

The Knights won all three of their pool play games by defeating the New Mexico Jackals, 13-10, the Central California Baseball Academy, 18-3, and the Crush Slammer from Colorado, 18-8. Federal Way then advanced into the championship bracket, which was double elimination. The Knights beat the Omaha Hawks, 15-3, and the RM Hit Club Rangers from Colorado, 164, to earn a berth into the semifinals. In the semifinals, the Knights took on the Cascade Crush from Bellingham and fell behind 11-4 going into

the sixth inning. But Federal Way rallied for five runs in the sixth inning and three more in the seventh for the come-from-behind, 12-11 victory and a spot in the championship. The team includes Brycen Allen, Christopher Michels, JJ Asinas, Xavier West, Kaden Jacobs, Andrew Ellingson, Tanner Knapp, Michael Ziccarelli, Jordon O’Connor, Robbie Bernovich, Mason DeLaCruz, Kenton Robillard, Tyler Mick and Tyler Swanson. The team is coached by Shaun Mick, Patrick O’Connor, Guy Bernovich and Ken Allen.

[ little league from page 17 ] both losses coming to Sammamish. The Federal Way team included Malachi Afework, Blake Beck, Tommy Davis, Gavin Knapp, Travis Miller, Brandon Niksich, Brandham Ponce, Ben Ray, Kyle Russell, Tyler Tribble, Tate Wallat and Mark Wright. The team was coached by Tom Wallat, Mike Niksich and Chuck Miller. National earned the second chance at Sammamish thanks to an impressive pitching performance by Gavin Knapp on Sunday morning during Federal Way’s 5-1 win. Knapp threw a six-inning complete-game during the win, allowing only one run on three hits. The Federal Way offense was also impressive behind •

Knapp, committing zero errors.

Federal Way 11, Chehalis 2 (Saturday)

National earned the berth into the championship round with the win over Chehalis in the loser’s bracket final Saturday. Ponce was very impressive on the mound for Federal Way, throwing 88 pitches during the complete-game performance. Ponce allowed only six hits and one earned run.

Federal Way 11, Cascade 8 (Friday)

Cascade took advantage of some miscues by Federal Way to keep the team close, but the National offense was too much in the end.

son. The best win by Federal Way came on July 16 against Redmond, who entered as a pre-tournament favorite. The two teams played to a 2-2 tie after regulation, forcing extra innings. Federal Way tallied the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth and held Redmond in the bottom of the inning to seal the victory. Redmond had a runner on third base in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings, but National held them scoreless all three times. Following the Redmond victory, Federal Way dominated Lewis River, 23-8, on July 17 in Vancouver before losing to Evergreen for the second time in the tournament the next day.

Sidelines: Ichiro is truly an enigma, but still one of the best

Marine Hills swimmers go undefeated By CASEY OLSON

The Marine Hills swim team finished the regular season with an unbeaten record after beating Normandy Park Tuesday night, 420-322. The win moved Marine Hills to 7-0 on the year. This is the second year in a row that Marine Hills has finished the regular season unbeaten. Last year, the Marlins followed up their first-ever unbeaten regular season in the Seattle Summer Swim League (SSSL) by dominating the All-City Meet championship at the Klahaya Swim and Tennis Club in the Edmonds area. It was also Marine Hills’ firstever All-City title. Several individual records have fallen during the 2012 summer season. Thomas Anderson broke the Marine Hills 13-14 boys 50 free record (22.75) and the 50 backstroke record (25.06), Mathias Oh is the new record holder in the 15 and over 50 fly (23.87), Breanna Ross set the 9-10 girls 100 individual medley (1:12.24), Casey Nguyen is the record holder in the 11-12 boys 50 breaststroke (22.51), Jason Nguyen in the 11-12 [ more briefs page 20 ]

felt that what was best for the team was to be traded to another club and give our younger players an opportunity to develop.” But the question remains, what will Ichiro’s legacy with the Mariners be? It’s a tough one to answer. In terms of stats alone, he might be the greatest player in the franchise’s history. However, statistics alone don’t tell the whole story with Ichiro and his Seattle sports legacy. In my opinion, Ichiro has a lot different pedigree than other Mariner stars like Griffey, Martinez and The Big Unit. We, meaning Seattle fans, never really got to know Ichiro. The Mariners’ Big Three had larger-thanlife personalities to go along with their larger-than-life talent on the baseball field. Ichiro never let anybody in. He rarely, and I mean rarely, granted interviews and when he did, the interviews seemed to be scripted to what Ichiro wanted to disclose to the fans. Granted, a lot of that is due to the fact that there was always an interpreter sitting right next to him despite him living in Issaquah since coming to America in 2001. I think Edgar Martinez would be a pretty good comparison to what Ichiro could have been, in terms of leaving a lasting legacy in


I know it doesn’t seem like it in recent years, but the Seattle Mariners have had plenty of star power during their relatively short history. But, one could argue, that Ichiro was the brightest of them all. Brighter than the other three “unsinkable” Mariners — Ken Griffey, Jr., Edgar Martinez and Randy Johnson. Ichiro dominated Major League Baseball for essentially a decade. Right from the time he stepped into a Mariners’ uniform during the magical 2001 season, he was the best leadoff hitter in baseball. In his first 10 seasons, Ichiro racked up an amazing 2,244 hits, hit over .300 every year, stole 357 bases and won 10-straight Gold Gloves in right field. He also set the single-season hit record in 2004 when he tallied 262 while hitting .372. Ichiro’s 11-plus-year run with the Mariners came to an abrupt end Monday when he he asked for, and was granted, a trade to the hated New York Yankees. The move was, essentially, a salary dump by Seattle. “On behalf of our ownership group and everyone in the Seattle Mariners organization, I thank Ichiro for the great career he’s had here in Seattle,” said Mariners CEO Howard Lincoln. “Ichiro knows that the club is building for the future, and he

Seattle. Obviously, English was not Edgar’s first language and despite that, he was beloved. Edgar grew up in Puerto Rico before coming to America, where he spent his entire 18-year career with the Mariners. He taught himself how to speak English and became a pillar in the Seattle community. Heck, Edgar Martinez Way sits right in front of Safeco Field. Edgar has been honored for countless hours, funds, resources and contributions he and his wife, Holli, have made to Seattle’s Children’s Hospital and numerous other organizations. Edgar was even inducted into the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame. The only link I can find to Ichiro humanitarian work came last year when he donated $1.25 million to the Japanese Red Cross for earthquake and tsunami relief efforts. Which was obviously a huge deal in his home country, but there was nothing of note from the Puget Sound area. Despite that, Ichiro’s agent, Tony Attanasio, said that the former all-star will keep his roots in Seattle despite continuing his career in New York City. “He loves Seattle,” Attanasio said after the trade. “This is his home. He’s not going to move. He’s going to stay in Seattle.” Despite Ichiro’s robotic exterior, it was

pretty obvious that he is going to miss playing for the Mariners. At his post-trade press conference, the emotionless Ichiro was slightly teary-eyed when talking about moving on. “When I think about the last 11 ½ years, about the time and feelings of the last 11 ½ years, and when I imagine taking off a Mariners uniform, I was overcome with sadness,” Ichiro said through his personal interpreter Ken Barron. “It has made this a very difficult decision to make.” But he did admit that the prospect of moving from the last-place Mariners to the first-place Yankees — and a chance for his first-ever World Series appearance — was enticing. Ichiro’s last playoff appearance came during his MVP and Rookie of the Year season of 2001. “I went from a team that’s had the most losses to a team having the most wins, so it’s been hard to maintain my excitement in that regard,” he said through Barron. Despite his relative wooden and laconic facade, there is no doubting that Ichiro has left a lasting legacy of greatness within the Mariners’ organization. “There will never be another one like him,” Mariners president Chuck Armstrong said. “There has never been one before him.” That’s for sure.

of it.” It was the third meeting at the state tournament between Federal Way and Salmon Creek, who hail from the Vancouver area, with National winning two. Federal Way rolled through the winner’s bracket with a perfect 4-0 record heading into the championship, forcing Salmon Creek to beat them twice. In the first title game Saturday, National was blown out, 10-0, after Federal Way pitchers allowed 12 walks. The usually potent National offense could only muster three hits. The turning point in the game came in the second inning when Salmon Creek sent 14 hitters to the plate and tallied eight runs on two hits and nine walks. “I don’t think we walked nine guys in district and state combined before this game,” Sugg said. “It was not the best day for our pitching staff.” But it was a different story a day later when Federal Way National got a strong pitching performance from Nate Clow and Carter Berry. Clow threw the first four innings, yielding one run on just three hits, striking out eight. Berry closed out the final two innings, retiring six of the eight batters he faced. “(Salmon Creek) was tough, they made Nate work,” Sugg said. “Nate got the outs but they were expensive. They were relentless and fouled off many pitches. They only scored one run, but made us work harder than the box score will show.” After Salmon Creek tallied the first run of the game in the first inning, Federal Way tallied the final seven to win the state title. After an RBI groundout by Abiel Gonzalez in the bottom of the first, National broke the game open in the third inning to take a 6-1 lead. Connor Ellingson had a one-out single to score Colin Heffernan and Cole Bakker and Berry later followed with another two-run single. Judah Graham worked an RBI walk to tally the other run for National. Federal Way added an insurance run in the fifth when Adam Taylor scored on a groundout. This year’s Federal Way National team included Elijah Bakam, Cole Bakker, Carter Berry, Nate Clow, Connor Ellingson, Abiel Gonzales, Judah Graham, Colin Heffernan, Tyler Hoeft, Spencer Sugg, Adam Taylor and Zachary Yoon.

Federal Way 8, Eastlake LL 3 (Thursday) National earned the berth into the championship by beating up Eastlake Little League from the Redmond area. Federal Way looked like they were going to blow things open in the first inning. They loaded the bases with no outs after three-straight singles, but were unable to push a run across. “A lot of teams would have been psyched out from losing out on that opportunity, but our guys knew that it meant we could score a lot if we kept hitting,” Sugg said. National did exactly that with four runs in the second inning on six hits, including RBIs from Spencer Sugg, Eli Bakam, Cole Bakker and Nate Clow. Eastlake closed the game to 4-3 in the bottom of the fourth, but Federal Way tallied three runs in the fifth to put the game away. Nate Clow threw the first four innings on the mound and was relieved by Connor Ellingson.

the doubles quarterfinals with Spencer Furman in Florida. “That was one of my first goals I wanted to achieve. It is the biggest accomplishment I have ever had in my life.” The National Clay Court Championship comes on the heels of Stewart rolling through the 2012 season unbeaten at Federal Way. His sophomore season culminated with the Class 4A state championship at the Columbia Basin Racquet Club in the Tri-Cities. He beat Skyview’s Kent Andreasen in the final, 6-2, 6-3, to finish the year 25-0. The win gave Stewart the state title that eluded him as a freshman. Stewart lost his only high school match of his twoyear career to Jackson’s Michael Chamerski in the 4A championship. In total, Stewart is 50-1 at Federal Way. Chamerski did not turn out for Jackson’s tennis team as a senior to concentrate more on playing national tournaments. Chamerski has already signed to play in the fall at the University of Washington. According to tennisrecruiting. net, Stewart has already narrowed his college choices to four of the most powerful programs in the nation — Duke, Georgia, UCLA and Washington. “I definitely want to go and play tennis in college,” Stewart said. “And, if I can, I want to go pro.” Stewart is set to play at the USTA National Junior Tennis Championships in Kalamazoo, Mich. starting Aug. 4.

Garbage strike affects service in Federal Way Earlier this week, drivers with Teamsters’ Local 117 went on strike against Waste Management, the company responsible for waste pickup and disposal throughout much of the Puget Sound region. Drivers in King and Snohomish counties walked away from their jobs over a contract dispute. Teamsters’ Local 174, the union that represents drivers in the Federal Way area, also went on strike in conjunction with their fellow drivers farther north. Federal Way posted an announcement on its website, informing residents that “Waste Management Inc. has notified the City of Federal Way that Teamsters’ Local 174 is striking in support of the Local 117 work stoppage. This strike affects garbage, recycling and yard waste service.” City spokesman Chris Carrel said city staff noted the work stoppage. “Yesterday (July 25), city staff documented incomplete service on regular Wednesday service routes,” Carrel said. As for Thursday, July 26, Carrel said there was no garbage or recycling pickup at all for that day, due to the strike. Waste Management said they are attempt-

ing negotiations with the disgruntled Teamsters. “Today, Teamsters 117 contacted Waste Management via a federal mediator to continue negotiations on Saturday, July 28,” said Waste Management spokesperson Robin Freedman. “We are prepared to do this provided the union leadership discontinues the pickets and allows our drivers to return to work. Unfortunately, the union leadership refuses to allow our drivers to return to work and refuses to ensure uninterrupted service next week.” Approximately 150 recycling and yard waste drivers that service King and Snohomish counties for Waste Management have been without a proper contract since May 31, leading to this disruption. Drivers of garbage trucks for Waste Management honored their fellow drivers’ actions, and walked away from the job. “It really just became enough is enough,” said Teamsters’ Local 117 president Tracey Thompson. “We have done everything we can think of to encourage this employer to act lawfully, to come to the bargaining table, to engage in meaningful bargaining, to stop retaliating and intimidating their worlds and they’re just refusing to do that.”

One thing that these scammers will do, Stevenson noted, is add an email account of theirs to a user’s “safe list,” so they’re alerted when the person attempts to make any changes to their settings. As for the $600 asking price for an antivirus program, Stevenson said that should be an immediate red flag to anyone who may receive this call. “No antivirus, I don’t care what it is, costs $600 for the home user. There’s just no way. Maybe for a company or enterprise, but not for a home user,” he said. Stevenson said the scammers will use high pressure tactics to try and get people to fork over the money. For instance, a scammer will tell someone that their computer literally has only 10 more minutes of use left before the fake viruses destroy the computer. Another thing Stevenson noted is that Microsoft does not have personal contact information for people. “Microsoft doesn’t know

[22] July 27, 2012 [ ROEGNER from page 4] been endorsed by two groups who backed a law that links teacher evaluations to personnel decisions and supports charter schools. However, in my interview with him, he said he was opposed to charter schools as it “just transfers the problem.” Moore has not signed the Norquist “no tax pledge” and while he says taxes should be a last resort, he also says “there might come a time when we need to make an investment.” Moore has been endorsed by a majority of the school board and several legislators. He has been pointed in his criticism of City Hall and Kochmar for building and subsidizing the Community Center. Moore is a local businessman and this is his fourth run for the Legislature. His experience shows in the manner in which his campaign is put together, and he may be the only candidate who will use television commercials. Moore is one of the more accomplished speakers in the race. He is very knowledgeable about education issues, is well prepared and usually has a ready smile. Jerry Galland has run unsuccessfully for the Legislature and the South King Fire and Rescue board of commissioners. He has been a community activist and led the opposition to the city annexing a section of unincorporated King County, where he lives. He is unlikely to raise as much money as the other candidates and will rely on doorbelling and community forums. He is easy to spot, as he drives around town in a miniature convertible roadster with “Galland” red signs on the side. Galland is probably the most conservative of all the candidates. He is a property and personal rights advocate, opposes gay marriage and is pro-life. He is unsure about his position on marijuana because of his deference of personal freedom. That deference extends to charter schools as well, as he believes parents should have a choice and the “competition isn’t a bad thing.” While he doesn’t like taxes and would like to look at current loop- holes, Galland did say “closing the door on taxes without discussion would be irresponsible.” He supports education and wants to put more money into classrooms. He doesn’t know how he will respond to the court ruling on education. Galland is a millwright, down to earth in his speaking style, and in his own words “a plain talker.” He is affable, but can also be passionate in his beliefs, even when they conflict with each other. Galland has been endorsed by Mark Freitas from the SKFR board. Galland is the wild card in the race. He may not be able to raise enough money to win, but he may play a significant role in who does. Galland will compete with Tony Moore for conservative votes, while Moore competes with Kochmar for moderate Republican votes and independents. If Galland can create enough momentum to siphon votes away from Moore, he could end up helping Kochmar. Kochmar is not only competing with Moore for moderate votes, but she is competing with the Democrats for independents who lean Democratic but could swing her way if she can raise enough money to get them her message. Moore and Kochmar received a “very good” rating from the Municipal League. Galland did not submit a questionnaire to the League, which typically uses other public sources when a questionnaire is not submitted. Galland received a “not qualified” rating. Watch how the candidates craft their message in debates, mailings and newspaper ads to appeal to specific blocks of voters in what appears to be a close race to advance to the November final. Barring last minute issues, the most likely to advance are Tony Moore and Roger Flygare, with Moore the probable front-runner in a traditional Republican-Democrat ideological runoff. However, if either Macfarlane or Kochmar advance, the dynamics in the race would change dramatically.

FUSION helps mother find hope By ANDY HOBBS

By the end of December 2011, Brittany and her 3-yearold son were homeless. She had never been homeless before, and finding shelter was a daily chore. On two nights, Brittany and the child slept in her car. In the shelters, she stayed on guard while sharing close quarters with strangers and shady people. A prison record kept her from finding stable housing. “I must have filled out 200 applications,” said Brittany, 23, who asked that her last name be withheld. “I felt like I was going to be stuck for a while.” She was released from prison in 2010, following an 18-month sentence for nonviolent drug and gun charges. Brittany vowed to change her reckless ways and get her life back together for the sake of her son. The stability she sought was short-lived. Brittany ended up

in an environment rife with domestic violence, and her life spiraled into homelessness. Through state assistance, the pieces began coming together as Brittany launched the long journey toward self-sufficient living. She entered a pre-apprenticeship program, joined the ironworkers union, and began learning a trade. On May 7, Brittany and her son moved into a FUSION housing unit in Federal Way. FUSION has 16 units in Federal Way and Northeast Tacoma for families in similar situations as Brittany. The first night in their home, Brittany and her son camped on the bedroom floor, then fixed breakfast when they woke up. The stress of finding a place to sleep had disappeared. “I’ve seen him relax over the last few months,” she said of her son, “and I’m able to fix dinner at night.” After nearly six months of rough living, the FUSION home has lifted a burden off Brittany and her son. It’s


a sharp contrast from the crowded and unpredictable homeless shelters. “I have this mentality to keep on moving forward,” she said. “I believe I really beat the odds of where I was supposed to be.”

Check it out Friends United to Shelter the Indigent, Oppressed and Needy (FUSION) will hold a Moulin Rouge theme art soiree from 3 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1, at the Dumas Bay Centre in Federal Way.

For now, the Federal Way clinic accepts anyone who needs help. Nearly 70 patients visit Cornerstone the first and third Saturday of every month. The clinic conducts basic health exams and blood tests, with assistance from a roster of about 45 volunteers. Providing care are seven medical doctors, two naturopathic doctors, two chiropractors and two acupuncturists. Dr. Byeon founded Cornerstone in 2008 in Federal Way before moving

the operation to Renton. In June 2012, the free clinic relocated to a 900-squarefoot office on South 333rd Street in Federal Way. The operation depends mostly on personal donations, which are taxdeductible. Clinic organizers recently applied for a $40,000 grant from the City of Federal Way. Meanwhile, sponsors like Paclab provide free blood tests for the clinic, which also seeks X-ray services and more volunteer specialists. Cornerstone Medical Services is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the first and third Sat-

Carol West another Garden Terrace success story

Prior to undergoing a planned total knee replacement surgery, Carol West selected Garden Terrace as the facility where she would receive short-term physical rehabilitation. West’s goal was to return home but because she lives in a two-story home with multiple steps to access each level, she knew her work was cut out for her. Luckily, hard work and overcoming adversities is nothing new to West. Although she was a stay at home mom and raising five children, with her military husband, she managed her large family through three tours of duty in Germany. With many mouths to feed, West knew she had to master enough of the German language to buy groceries. Surprisingly enough, grocery shopping

remains one of West’s favorite activities, and states, “it’s the first thing I’m going to do when I get home.” With the help of the physical therapy team and West’s strong determination, she was able to return home just 12 days following her surgery at Valley Medical Center. Besides cooking her famous spaghetti, she’s looking forward to watching her two grandchildren compete in Pacific Ballroom dance. Speaking of spaghetti, GardenTerrace is holding their annual spaghetti dinner, dessert auction, and raffle event on Aug 15, 2012, with all the proceeds supporting the Alzheimer’s Association With the help of the Garden Terrace physical therapy team Memory Walk. Please contact us for additional and West’s strong determination, she was able to return home in just 12 days. information.
