Cedar River library wins in a landslide By TRACEY COMPTON and DEAN A. RADFORD tcompton@rentonreporter.com

The Citizens for the Cedar River Library celebrated its victory Tuesday night, while Mayor Denis Law showed appreciation of the process the morning after the vote. Law also answered the question, what’s next for the downtown library? At the Citizens for the Cedar River Library camp, a roar went up when the first election results came in at about 8:30 p.m. among the 40 or so people gathered at the home of City Council member Marcie Palmer.

Latest election results online|rentonreporter.com

Renton’s voters stuck by their beloved library over the Cedar River Tuesday, overwhelmingly voting to refurbish it rather than build a new one. Renton’s voters are selecting in the primary election the location of the downtown library. Wednesday results posted at 4:30 p.m. showed that 76 percent favor keeping the library right where it’s been for 46 years vs. 24 percent who want to build a new library just west of the Piazza. In numbers that’s 7,786 for the Cedar library and 2,444 for the Piazza library.

Renton’s night out to fight crime

It’s coming at 7:30 p.m. Friday, the 58-hour closure of State Route 167 in Renton so the state can install a new fish culvert under the freeway.

City to meet with KCLS to decide what’s next Primary sets

Dale Hartman, the King County Elections Division IT service delivery manager, collects ballots from last-minute voters at the elections headquarters on Grady Way in Renton Tuesday evening. An atomic clock keeps track of the time; at 8 p.m., voters were out of luck. Joining Hartman in a job that brought a lot of smiles was Fred Schuneman, the elections division’s human resources manager. dean a. radford, Renton Reporter

the Renton libraries has begun. It is now in the hands of the mayor, City Council and KCLS. I see two options: two scaled-down libraries or a tax increase. It will be interesting to see what will be done.” The King County Elections Division will continue counting ballots through Aug. 20; a lead this large is impossible to overcome. The county will update election results weekdays at 4:30 p.m. through Monday, Aug. 20, with the final results posted Tuesday, Aug. 21. The stage was set for the election after a citizens group collected enough signatures to validate an initiative to put the location to a vote. While the Renton City Council didn’t accept

the initiative, council did come up with its own ballot measure that accomplished the same thing. Avery acknowledges that it is still important to support downtown retailers, but a new library site at the Piazza just wasn’t the way to do it. “This was never about taking anything away from them (retailers),” said Avery. “They need and deserve the full support of our community. Although we knew a library downtown at west of the Piazza was not the solution for this, we do believe that a solution can be found to address the concerns of business owners in the downtown district. There is no simple solutions, but that doesn’t mean we can’t work as a commu-

nity to find one.” During the campaign before the election much of the debate swirled around the cost of each location. The cost of building the new Piazza library is estimated at $9.3 million, the figure that was used in the Voters Pamphlet. The most recent estimate from the King County Library System to refurbish the Cedar library is $13.1 million. The Voters Pamphlet had the cost at $10.1 million, an earlier estimate. The City of Renton sold $18 million in bonds to build the new libraries downtown and in the Highlands. The King County Library System will then own and operate the two libraries.

Among those at the electionnight gathering were former Mayor Don Custer, who was the mayor when the downtown library was built in 1966. He told stories to the group about the library. “I am no less than thrilled with the results and they should put an end to any speculations about what Renton citizens want for a library location,” Stuart Avery, group spokesperson, wrote in an email Wednesday. “I believe the overwhelming amount of information which voters had been exposed to over the past weeks was weighed into their decision making, and the decision has now been made clear.” For Mayor Law it’s now clear that Renton voters want the library to remain over the Cedar River. He credited the majority of City Council members, who initially selected the Big 5 site, for allowing voters to have a say in the final location. “This process shows that the council truly cares about the opinions of our citizens,” Law said through email Wednesday morning. The city will now meet with KCLS to discuss how to proceed, he said. “The city still has contract obligations to meet with KCLS and it’s my hope that we’ll be able move forward successfully with minimum additional expense to our taxpayers,” Law said. For the opposition, the People for the Piazza Park Library, Laurie Beden, co-chair, is proud of their campaign. “I am extremely proud of the fact based campaign we ran and know our efforts were aimed at providing the very best in library services to the citizens of Renton,” said Beden. “The next chapter in

Renton hopes National Night Out gives a kick start By ADAM McFADDEN amcfadden@rentonreporter.com

Renton citizens stood up against crime, made connections and had some free hot dogs at Renton’s citywide celebration of National Night Out Tuesday evening at Heritage Park. “It’s important to pull people together,” said Cyndie Parks, Renton’s National Night Out coordinator. “It’s awesome when you can give people an opportunity to meet people from the Police Department and the Fire department. It’s a casual atmosphere if they have questions or concerns.” This is the fifth year Renton has had a citywide National Night Out event and it has rotated to different parks around the city. Parks was expecting roughly 600 people to attend. There were safety games, prizes and a bouncy slide for kids. Valley SWAT also had a V150 armored vehicle there for people to get a closer look. And, of course, there were free hot dogs for the community. Most importantly though, it was a chance

for people to make connections with their neighbors. “Here’s your kickstart to go out into your individual neighborhood, maybe start thinking about organizing Block Watch,” Parks said. “I’m

Pump station fixed; West Hill fire protection back on track By ADAM McfADDEN amcfadden@rentonreporter.com

The City of Renton completed work on a damaged water main under the West Hill Pump Station July 30, cutting short worries of decreased fire protection in the area. “The West Hill Pump Station is a critical pump station that

was found July 23 when water was seeping through the floor of the pump station. Work started July 25 and water was back on July 30. The final cost for the project was about $17,000. Early projections estimated the cost would be at least double that figure and that work could stretch into midAugust. Gafour said the leak was found quicker than expected.

provides water not only domestic use, but also for fire protection to the West Hill Area,” said Abdoul Gafour, Water Utility Supervisor for the City of Renton. “Without the pump station we wouldn’t have the required capacity for fire protection.” Mayor Denis Law made an emergency declaration so work could begin quickly after the leak

“We discovered the leak was from a small fitting underneath the floor slab of the pump station,” Gafour said. The West Hill Pump Station is located at 615 West Perimeter Road and services West Hill, as well as a portion of the Skyway Water District. Gary Merlino Construction performed the repair work.

hoping it spurs and motivates them to stretch these things outside the bounds of just this one night.” Communication between neighbors and between citizens and police is vital to preventing crime, said Renton Police Chief Kevin Milosevich. “This is an opportunity for us to go out into the neighborhoods and meet the people,” Milosevich said. “And it’s an opportunity for them to get to know each other and what’s typical in their neighborhood and what’s not.” Several local groups, including the South Union Neighborhood Association (SUNA), were in attendance, offering information. “We want to meet more people in the neighborhood and hopefully we can work together to make it better,” said Dallin Slaugh of SUNA. Renton joined forces with more than 15,000 communities nationwide for the 29th Annual National Night Out event. About 37 million people are expected to attend the event nationwide.

● QUOTE OF NOTE:

“I am no less than thrilled with the results and they should put an end to any speculation about what Renton citizens want for a library location.“ Stuart Avery, spokesman, Citizens for the Cedar River Library

OUR VIEW

Renton sends strong message about library

F

inally, Renton has spoken loudly and clearly about its library. While there are still votes to count, the public’s will is to preserve the beloved library over the Cedar River. The lead after the initial results were released Tuesday night is insurmountable. But in making their wishes known, voters have chosen the difficult path, with a destination still years away. That’s OK. The decision was made with eyes wide open and pretty much every pro and con in play to weigh. The Renton Reporter supported building a new library at the Piazza; we’re not backing away from that position. The Piazza site still seems to make sense, from a practical standpoint and a financial one. But what really matters is that the public has spoken. Realistically, however, don’t count out the west Piazza site. The City Council could decide the city can’t afford the extra cost of refurbishing the Cedar library and still choose to build the Piazza library. Some things have to happen first before the City Council makes any decision: 1. The council must commit to fully funding the new library in the Highlands; it cannot siphon off money from that much-in-demand library to pay for a new or refurbished downtown library. That commitment must come immediately, so the Sunset redevelopment in the Highlands can proceed unimpeded. The new Highlands library is an anchor for that redevelopment. 2. The public deserves clarity from the city, designers and the King County Library System on whether there are environmental hazards under the west Piazza site that would require expensive cleanup. That possibility gained traction in the election campaign.

B

ut why does it matter now to find out whether there are extra costs or more accurate costs for the west Piazza library? It matters because even if the Piazza library is still cheaper, it has lost some of its cost advantage over the Cedar River library. A Cedar River library in a stronger financial position makes saving it a worthwhile policy goal at the expense of other considerations. And, besides, that’s the public’s will. Still turning will into reality is that difficult path – negotiations between the city and KCLS hopefully will come up with an affordable plan, then there’s a long period of refurbishing. It’s the path the city will have to take. If that path leads to a refurbished Cedar River library, then – and there’s no argument here – a cultural and historical icon is saved.

Renton

Letter to editor I am ready to pay share for Cedar River library It’s time for Renton voters to put their money where their mouths are. We knew that rehabbing the Cedar River location would be more expensive than the downtown location but we voted for it anyway. I anticipate tax increases, special levies,

etc., as the project moves forward, and I am ready to pay my share with a smile. Just watching the kids’ faces during their special time on Wednesdays is worth an extra five bucks a month to me. Let’s make this work!!

SBA offers veterans ‘Boots to Business’ Each year, 250,000 service members make the transition from military service to civilian life. Veterans over-index in entrepreneurship. In fact, nine percent of all U.S. firms are owned by veterans. More than 2.4 million veteran-owned businesses employ more than 5.8 million individuals. About one quarter of veterans say they are interested in starting or buying their own business. So, we know that providing greater access and opportunity to these veteran-owned small businesses will help them grow and create jobs. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has numerous programs in place specifically designed to support our veterans. Financing opportunities exist for veterans who are establishing or expanding their small business, including microloans and Patriot Express loans. Last year, nationally, we approved more than 4,300 loans to veterans totaling $1.5 billion. And, the Seattle District office approved 110 loans to veterans totaling more than $53 million. Thousands of military reservists and veterans have also received entrepreneurship training and business counseling through SBA-affiliated partnerships. And, within the last two years, SBA worked with contracting officers to deliver the highest-ever percentage of federal contracts to service-disabled, veteran-owned small busiCalvin Goings

nesses, totaling $10.4 billion. But we can do more. That’s why the SBA launched Operation Boots to Business: From Service to Startup to help transitioning service members and veterans become entrepreneurs and create jobs. Operation Boots to Business will build on SBA’s role as a leader in entrepreneurship training. SBA will help connect veterans with its resource partner network – Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), Women’s Business Centers (WBCs), SCORE, and Veterans Business Opportunity Centers (VBOCs) – for support throughout the life-cycle of their new businesses. A pilot program is under way with the Marine Corps at four locations – Quantico, Va.; Cherry Point, N.C.; Camp Pendleton, Calif.; and TwentyNine Palms, Calif. By next year we plan to expand to all branches of the military. Veterans are natural entrepreneurs, already possessing the experience and leadership skills to start businesses and create jobs. Boots to Business is an opportunity to assist our local veterans channel these skills and ultimately help them to create an economy built to last.

LIFE IN THE CITY

As a busy mom to four kids ranging in age from 2 to 12 we always make the Seattle rounds: King Tut’s exhibit at the Pacific Science Center, Folk Life Festival, Bumbershoot, Woodland Park Zoo, beachcombing on Alki. And when we do, a trip to Molly Moon’s Ice Cream shop is always on the dangling carrot on our itinerary, the covenant entered into between parent and child: ice cream treat at the end of whatever adventure were on – if you’re good. Unfortunately, whether it’s the famous lines that snake up and down the five Molly Moon Seattle locations, or we’re plumb tuckered out, we usually don’t make it. So it is with rare elation that on a recent Sunday just Amelia and I, hand in hand, moseyed our way over to the Capitol Hill Molly Moon’s Ice Cream Shop. We had just attended a book reading at Elliot Bay Book store, just the two of us, enjoying some time together. And it was here that we shared the best Banana Split I’ve ever eaten, the sweet stuff that childhood (and mommy) memories are made of. Amelia Ossorio enjoys what most The banana was 8-year-olds do, eating ice cream. Carolyn perfectly halved, firm Ossorio and not over ripe. Cradled within the banana boat were three scoops of Molly Moon’s homemade ice cream. Up until that point I’d never tasted Salted Caramel ice cream and here Amelia and I were staring down at two scoops. Let me tell you, the taste of salted caramel is so divine I marveled that I had gone so long without never having the pleasure of tasting something so balanced, both salty and sweet on the palate and like the character Peter in “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” yearning for Turkish Delight. I wanted more. Perched between the two scoops of Salted Caramel sat Amelia’s favorite flavor of all time, Strawberry, which can only be described in color and flavor as the beautiful love

Molly Moon will join Carolyn Ossorio at her web-based cooking program at IKEA Aug. 15. Submitted child of farm-picked strawberries and local cream churned into ice cream clouds of Strawberry Fields FOREVER! The Banana Split has been around since 1904 when a 23-year-old apprentice pharmacist, David Evans Strickler, dreamed up the banana-based triple ice cream sundae at a soda fountain in Pennsylvania. And anyone knows that you cannot have a banana split without homemade whip cream, a dollop of cherry topping, candied hazelnuts and hot fudge. The Molly Moon version was the kind of treat you don’t let a little dribble of hot fudge down your chin stop you from a spoon, bumper-car-dance with your 8-year-old daughter over the last few bites. According to Molly Moon’s new book, “Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream”: “In the summer of 2007, Molly Moon Nizel started a

Police Blotter

By ADAM McFADDEN amcfadden@rentonreporter.com

A Kent man was arrested after a domestic incident in a tent under Interstate 405 July 30. Witnesses called police to report a women standing at the intersection of Southwest Grady Way and Longacres Drive South trying to wave down passing cars. Police arrived and the 45-yearold Kent woman told them she was tired of her 47-year-old husband hitting her. She had dried blood on her lips and shirt. She said she had been living with her husband in a tent under I-405 for the past nine months and he frequently beat her. In the latest incident, she claimed he had been drinking all night with his friends. “He was looking for a fight since last night. He tried with his friends. When they wouldn’t buy into it he came to me.” He then slapped and punched her before she could escape to seek help. While police were arresting the man for investigation of fourthdegree domestic assault, they found brass knuckles in his possession and he made several unsolicited racist rants.

Neighborly squabble leads to gun threat A Renton man was arrested for harassment July 28 after threatening to harm his neighbor. The neighbor and the 30-yearold man have a history of disagreements and she called police when the man was standing at the fence separating their homes in the 3400 block of Northeast Seventh Place and threatened to “pop” her. The neighbor had seen spent shell casings fall from the man’s vehicle last year. The man was arrested in June for unlawful possession of a firearm after discharging a weapon from the driver’s seat of a parked car. After that incident, police found two AK-47 assault rifles, two Glock handguns and a shotgun at his residence. He is not allowed to possess firearms after a prior domesticviolence conviction in which fired a weapon while threatening a victim. Police arrested the man July 28 on a warrant related to the unlaw-

A Renton boy was arrested for possessing alcohol after verbally assaulting police officers July 25. Police arrived at an apartment complex in the 12000 block of Southeast Petrovitsky Road after a complaint of juveniles loitering. Upon arrival, police recognized a 15-year-old boy who had been reported missing. Police recognized him because of numbers police contacts and the fact that he is permanently bound to a wheelchair because of a gang-related shooting. After police spoke to the the boy about the missing-person report, he began verbally assaulting them with racist slurs. The boy was also moving his hands around his waist, which prompted a search. Police found a full bottle of Grey Goose vodka and a full bottle of Ciroc Vodka. The boy then continued to make racist slurs and comments about having inappropriate relations with one officer’s wife. He also said that if he had a gun, he would shoot the officers in the head. The suspect’s yelling began to draw a crowd that was making

A man broke a gas pump screen when the machine declined his credit card July 19. A witness stated the man in his 30s punched and broke the screen of the machine after his card was declined at a gas station in the 1600 block of Northeast 30th Street in Renton. The witness said the suspect was driving a silver hatchback with a canoe or kayak on the roof and wrote down the license plate number. When police ran the license, it came back as a gold sedan. There is no clear video of the incident because surveillance cameras do not have an angle covering that pump.

A Renton woman was transported to Valley Medical Center after being found heavily intoxicated July 24. Police arrived to find firefighters on the scene, who pointed them to a 53-year-old Renton woman on a bench in the 200 block of Burnett Avenue South. The women was difficult to understand because her speech was slurred, and she had thrown up all over herself. Firefighters had cleared the woman because she seemed OK, but when she stood up and walked, she fell flat on her face. Police took her into protective custody and transported her to Valley Medical Center.

The victims, 9 and 10, were riding their bikes on Jones Avenue when a green, medium-sized, extra cab pick-up truck going the same direction pulled up next to them and matched their speed. The victims described the suspect as a white male in his late 30s with red hair and a long goatee. The truck stopped following them at the next stop sign. The victims had been playing at Kennydale Elementary School and had not noticed the truck there.

Renton man charged with assault on officer

Prosecutors review shooting charge

By ROBERT WHALE

dradford@rentonreporter.com

rwhale@auburn-reporter.com

King County prosecutors mid-week continued to consider whether to file charges against an 18-year-old man who is a suspect in the shooting death of his cousin. The 19-year-old victim died of a gunshot wound at about 12:30 a.m. Aug. 1 at an apartment complex off Martin Luther King Jr. Way on West

Hill. The suspect surrendered to authorities that night. A King County Superior Court judge decided Aug. 2 in an initial court appearance that there was probable cause to hold the suspect for second-degree murder and set bail at $750,000. The deadline to formally file charges was Monday, but the man remained in jail on a charge of first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. His bail on

Not guilty plea for vehicular assault A 27-year-old Renton man pleaded not guilty at a Monday arraignment to a charge of vehicular assault for allegedly hitting and critically injuring a pedestrian on Lake Washington Boulevard in Renton July 7. Garrett Anthony Bakken is free on bail. A case setting hearing was set for Sept. 5 at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. Bakken lives in the 1000 block of Lake Washington Boulevard, not far from where 54-year-old Rosalind M. Hall was hit at about 8:45 a.m. on July 7. According to court documents, Bakken was southbound on Lake Washington Boulevard when his 2003 Hyundai Sante Fe drifted off the roadway, struck a guardrail and a street sign. He continued south at about 35 mph, striking Hall as she was northbound in a pedestrian pathway. She suffered broken bones and cuts and bruises. In charging Bakken, King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg wrote that Bakken was driving his car while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.

that charge was increased to $250,000, according to Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for the Prosecutor’s Office. Apparently a handgun was pulled out among a group of people in the apartment and passed around for inspection. At some point the victim’s cousin pointed the gun at him, pulled the trigger and shot the 19-year-old in the chest, according to Sgt. Cindi West, spokesperson for the Sheriff ’s Office.

King County prosecutors on Monday filed two charges of first-degree assault and one of first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm against a Renton man whom they say fired a shotgun at two Auburn police officers early on Wednesday morning of last week. At the request of prosecutors, Lawrence Jenkins, 23, is in jail on $1 million bail. According to the Auburn Police Department’s affidavit of probable cause, which forms the basis for the three charges, at about 12:47 a.m. that day, an Auburn officer spotted Jenkins walking along the 1100 block of A Street Southeast and decided to contact him about a recent string of burglaries in the area. The officer turned his vehicle around and found Jenkins on 11th Street Southeast. Before the officer could get out of his vehicle, Jenkins allegedly shot at him, striking the windshield on the driver’s side before fleeing southbound on foot. According to the affidavit, Jenkins went on to shoot at a second officer who responded to the area to help in 1200 block of A Street Southeast. The second officer’s vehicle was struck on the driver’s door. The second officer returned fire, with one round, as Jenkins allegedly fled eastbound. Officers found Jenkins hiding in a yard in the 100 block of 12th Street Southeast and took him into custody without further incident. Lying on the ground by his left hand, according to the affidavit, was a pistol-sized shotgun. Police also found a duffel bag in the bush with additional ammunition for the shotgun, according to the affidavit. According to the affidavit, Jenkins said he had not fired upon the officers who finally captured him because he had known that he was “outgunned.” Jenkins had a 2002 conviction for second-degree robbery when he was a juvenile and a 2007 conviction for firstdegree robbery and second-degree assault. He was released from prison on July 6, 2011, having served 53 months on the 2007 convictions. In asking for the high bail, prosecutors wrote to the judge: “The defendant is clearly escalating his violent behavior and is in danger of committing additional acts of violence if he is free in the community. In light of his behavior here, he is not at all likely to appear in response to a summons.”

A new online service makes it easy for King County families to find a park where they can play without concern about pesticides. “Providing this information in one place helps parents learn more about pesticide use and recognizes the work of maintenance staff who are reducing the use of chemicals in parks,” said Dave Galvin, Hazardous Waste Program Manager. The Pesticide-Free Places website, www.HazWasteHelp.org/Pesticide-FreePlaces, is provided through a partnership between the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program, King County Parks, Seattle Parks and Recreation and suburban cities. The map helps parents and caregivers find outdoor areas across King County where pesticide use has either been eliminated or is strictly limited – and new places are continually being added to this list. Kids are most at risk from exposure toxic chemicals like pesticides as they crawl, role and play on lawns – and chemical exposures can have life-long impacts. Parks staff from across King County are working to keep employees and visitors safe, while protecting streams, Puget Sound and the animals that call these places home. The “pesticide-free” designation means that no EPA-registered pesticides are used in the maintenance of the park or recreation area and that integrated pest management techniques are used to tackle noxious weeds. “Pesticidereduced” places identified on the map are those places that don’t have pesticides on lawns or in children’s play areas. King County Parks manages more than 26,000 acres of parks and natural lands; of the 189 total sites, 102 are pesticide free and 87 are pesticide reduced. Cities that manage their parks pesticide-free or with limited pesticide use are Auburn, Kenmore, Medina, Newcastle, Redmond, SeaTac and Snoqualmie. For help with pesticide alternatives, call the Garden Hotline at 206-633-0224, or visit www.GrowSmartGrowSafe.org.

Sikh community to hold vigil for worshippers slain in Wisconsin Aug. 5 King County‘s Sikh community will hold a candlelight vigil in Renton Saturday to remember the worshippers killed in Wisconsin on Aug. 5. Six people were killed during a ceremony taking place inside their temple. The public vigil is 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Gurdwara Singh Sabha of Washington, 5200 Talbot Road S., Renton, “This tragedy came from a place of ignorance and hatred,” says Jasmit Singh, member of the Gurdwara Singh Sabha of Washington, based in Renton. “But we are hoping to create awareness and acceptance here in our state of Washington. We choose not to live in fear.” The candlelight vigil will include prayer service, in-

formational presentation on Sikhism, and an opportunity for others to show support. Following the event, a community meal, or langar, will be served. The 200,000 to 500,000 Sikhs in the U. S. live in close-knit communities. Metropolitan King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn, who met with Sikh officials earlier this week, called the attack an “unspeakable tragedy.” “Sikhs in the Pacific Northwest and all throughout the United States should never feel fear when entering their place of worship,” said Dunn. “My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of those that lost their lives this past weekend.”

Flynn to start at QB for preseason opener Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced Matt Flynn will start at quarterback in the team's first preseason game Saturday. Thus far in offseason camps the team has had all three quarterbacks, Flynn, Tarvaris Jackson and Russell Wilson split reps in practice. “We have a plan in motion and we’re to a point where we are making a little transition," Carroll said at a press conference. "This week through tomorrow and the game, Matt is the number one quarterback." Carroll also said that Flynn will play the first half of the preseason game, while Wilson will play the second half.

The announcement doesn’t necessarily mean Flynn will be the team’s starter in the regular season. Jackson has started 34 career games and 14 for Seattle last year. Flynn has started two games as a backup in Green Bay. So the coaching staff likely wants to see more of Flynn in action. Flynn started in Week 17 last season against the Lions and threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns. His first start came in 2010 against the Patriots, when he 251 yards and three touchdowns.

Seahawks sign Owens The Seahawks signed 38-year-old wide receiver Terrell Owens to a one-year deal Tuesday. Owens made his practice debut with the team Wednesday. Owens didn't play in the NFL last year after suffering a torn ACL in April 2011. He came back late in the season to play for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. Owens caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine

touchdowns in 14 games for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010. For his career, he had 1,078 catches for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns. Owens has only twice failed to top 55 catches in a season (1996 and 2009). Owens gained a reputation for being a problem in the locker room during some of his previous stops, but Seattle isn't take much of a risk signing Owens to a one-year deal.

August is a deadly month on Washington’s roadways; from 2006 - 2010, on average, more impaired-driving deaths occurred in August than any other month, according to the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. According to the commission, here are some behaviors drunken drivers can exhibit, depending upon impairment level, according to the commission. For example, those who know they are impaired: • Travel slower than the posted speed limit • Appear to be drunk (face close to the wind-

shield) • Slow responses to traffic signals, sudden stops, tapping of brake lights • Travel side to side within and outside of their lane Those who don’t think they are impaired generally drive a little more aggressively and: • Speed • Follow too closely • Change lanes abruptly (weaving in and out of traffic) • Travel side to side within and outside of their lane Someone who sees a driver exhibiting such behavior should dial 911. The combination of one or more of these behaviors may alert you that you are near a drunk driver, so what do you do?

Last year in King County, during the same time period, officers on routine and extra patrols arrested 452 people for DUI. For all of 2011, in King County, 10,331 people were charged with DUI.

County exec calls for review of trash strike King County Executive Dow Constantine and King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert Wednesday urged the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (WUTC) to conduct a thorough investigation into missed garbage, yard waste and recycling pickups in the unincorporated areas during a recent strike by haulers who work for Waste Management of Washington, Inc. “I’m glad that Waste Management and its drivers were able to reach agreement, but we received many complaints from residents about missed pickups,” said Executive Constantine. “I urge the WUTC to conduct a thorough investigation and to use its regulatory authority to ensure that residents and businesses whose collections were disrupted are made whole.” In separate letters to the WUTC – the governmental entity with legal authority over solid waste collection in unincorporated areas – Executive Constantine and Councilmember Lambert noted that Waste Management is entrusted with the vital public service of garbage, yard waste and recycling collection, and that thousands “I’m glad that of residents, including those in Waste Management unincorporated areas, were left without garbage and recycling and its drivers were able to reach pickup. “It is important for customagreement, but ers in the unincorporated we received many area to understand that King complaints from County doesn’t control waste residents about collection services, because missed pickups.” the State of Washington has County Executive Dow the regulatory authority,” said Constantine Councilmember Kathy Lambert, who represents northeast King County areas served by Waste Management. “We need to work very closely with the state Utilities and Transportation Commission to make sure our unincorporated area citizens have the same protections as those in cities, and that the same accountability measures can be applied to waste haulers. It also is important for those affected by service disruptions to get better information, and they need it right away,” added Lambert. Drivers represented by Teamsters Local 117 who collect recyclables and food and yard waste, and who are employed by Waste Management, went on strike for eight days beginning July 25. Drivers represented by Teamsters Local 174 who collect garbage honored the picket lines and garbage also went uncollected. Customers of Waste Management were able to comment to state regulators at a public meeting Thursday on the impacts of the company’s recent labor dispute on solid waste and recycling collection services.

Steve Peer, a spokesman for the Washington State Department of Transportation, gives some perspective to the size of the 19-foot-wide culvert that will go underneath State Route 167. Washington State Department of Transportation

State to install culvert [ 167 close from page 1] Valley Medical Center. The off-ramp to South 180th Street will remain open on northbound SR 167 and the on-ramp from South 180th Street to southbound SR 167 will remain open. The state says to expect delays at the interchange and to use detours. The Washington state Department of Transportation suggests two detours, one to Interstate 5 to avoid the area altogether and one using surface streets in south Renton. The traffic diversion will affect some Renton streets. The City of Renton signals along Lind Avenue and Oakesdale Avenue favor the north-south through traffic, so the route to Grady Way should be clear, according to Preeti Shridhar, a City of Renton spokeswoman. The signal timing at Rainier Avenue and Grady Way is now on the city’s new ACS-Lite network, which

monitors traffic volumes and adjusts the signal timing automatically, she said. The closure will allow the Washington Department of Transportation and its contractor, Scarsella Bros., to install a new fish-friendly culvert on Panther Creek where it passes under SR 167 in Renton. The work is part of a larger project for future SR 167 improvements and will help reduce seasonal flooding to properties along the west side of 167, according to a WSDOT press release. Crews will remove and replace 65feet of highway to install the 19-foot wide culvert. They will also work on several other maintenance projects in the work zone to reduce the need for future closures.

Four major weekend-long highway closures coupled with a city of Seattle ramp closure and a Seahawks game Saturday night could lead to significantly longer travel times on key Puget Sound corridors this weekend. Drivers are advised to plan ahead, find alternate routes and plan an extra hour of travel time. Crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will close all lanes of three highways to install large culverts. • State Route 167 in Renton and the State Route 520 floating bridge will close Friday night, Aug. 10, and reopen Monday morning, Aug. 13. • State Route 9 in Clearview will close Friday night, Aug. 10, and reopen Sunday morning, Aug 12. • Crews also will demolish SR 520’s Bellevue Way overpass and add new lanes at the State Route 92/SR 9 intersection in Lake Stevens. • Seattle Department of Transportation crews will close the ramp to 85th Street from southbound Interstate 5 for 17 days to pave, starting Friday, Aug. 10.

The details of SR 167 closure WSDOT and its contractor, Scarsella Brothers, will install a new fish-friendly culvert on Panther Creek where it passes under SR 167 in Renton. The work is part of mitigation for an emergency culvert repair at Thunder Hills Creek in Renton near I-405. Starting at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 10, crews will

close SR 167 for 58 hours. When is the closure? 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10, to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13. Where is the closure? Crews will completely close both directions of SR 167 between South 180th Street and I-405.

What remains open during SR 167 closures? The off-ramps to South 180th Street will remain open on northbound SR 167 and the on-ramp from South 180th Street to southbound SR 167 will remain open. Expect delays at the interchange and plan to use detours.

When will crews reopen the highway? All ramps and the mainline will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13. Why do crews need to completely close the highway? Crews are digging a 25-foot-deep and 100-footwide trench for the new 19-foot wide culvert. How can I help get the word out about the closure? Drivers, residents, and business owners can help limit congestion by sharing this information with friends, family, neighbors, customers, and co-workers. What can drivers do? Thousands of vehicles travel through the I-405/SR 167 interchange on a typical weekend. To help prevent regional gridlock, the state suggests: • Delay discretionary trips, especially during high traffic periods, especially between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. • Anticipate heavy congestion on alternate routes such as I-405, I-5 and SR 181. • Expect increased congestion on local streets, especially on Lind Avenue, South 180th Street, South Grady Way, Rainier Avenue South, Talbot Road, and SR 181/West Valley Highway.

Refinery fire could boost state gas prices

(smile more, too.)

Washington state could see higher gas prices because of a recent fire that closed a California oil refinery, according to GasBuddy. com. Prices in Washington could increase 5 to 15 cents a gallon, with similar increases in Oregon. In California averages may rise 10 to 25 cents, according to GasBuddy.com. The fire that began Monday closed the Chevron refinery in Richmond, the third-largest refinery in California. Whether the California refineries resume operation in weeks or months remains to be determined.
