City to examine future of municipal airport By ROBERT WHALE

Auburn Municipal Airport and its owner, the City of Auburn, are struggling in the chains that

bind them to the Federal Aviation Administration, Mayor Pete Lewis told members of the Municipal Services Committee on Monday. Chains forged and drawn tight with each loan the City accepts

from the FAA for the maintenance or improvement of the 44-year-old commuter airport, as such loans create an obligation to the FAA and grant it sway that continues for the term of the loan.

If Auburn, Lewis said, is to be denied almost any function at the airport that isn’t purely an aircraft, its leaders may want to consider whether the City should keep accepting those loans and indeed,

whether in the long term the City should own an airport at all. “If we are to be told that we are only to be of a certain size, only to be able to do certain functions, [ more AIRPORT page 2 ]

The trouble keeps mounting for Mayor Cy Sun and the City of Pacific. On Monday the mayor and the Pacific City Council were informed of Auburn’s formal refusal of Sun’s proposed interlocal agreement – which would have allowed Pacific to contract with its neighboring city for vital services in vacant positions such as public works director, city engineer and planner – as well as a second whistleblower complaint against Sun, citing improper governmental action and retaliation. In a letter to Sun, the City Council, and City Attorney Kenyon Luce, Associate Planner

CIS of Auburn sets drive-up donation event For years, Communities in Schools (CIS) of Auburn has helped kids in need, supplying them with clothing and supplies donated by the community. But a devastating arson fire that swept a self-storage unit on Auburn Way North on July 11 reduced the organization’s supplies to piles of ashes. To contribute to the recovery effort, CIS of Auburn presents a drive-up event to accept monetary or supply donations from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on: • Aug. 24, at Auburn Riverside High School, 501 Oravetz Road, west parking lot. • Aug. 25, Fugate Administration Building, 915 4th St. NE, front parking lot.

and only in certain ways, is it something that we wish to continue?” Lewis asked. Lewis added that this is not a problem demanding immediate action, but “it’s something for council members to start thinking about because of those limitations that the FAA has put on this airport,” Lewis said. “We can’t make improvements, we can’t close it, we can’t change it unless approved by the FAA.” Councilman Wayne Osborne, a former air traffic controller, argued strongly against the City’s divesting itself of the airport. “That airport is a crown jewel of the city … it’s something that a lot of other cities don’t have,”

Osborne said. “And you could do a lot of economic development around that if certain things were to happen in the future. I think there’s advantage to having it. That land (on the west side of the airport) is also worth quite a bit of money, although a certain amount of it is wetland.” Besides, Osborne continued, this business about FAA control is not exactly a new problem the federal government has held a lot of sway over what happens at the airport since the City built and opened it in 1968, he said. “It didn’t come to light over night, it’s been going on all along,” Osborne said. “Years and years since the airport was put in and

they’ve been taking FAA money. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: free money is not free, and this is one of those situations.” Lewis countered that the time had come to reassess the situation because FAA control today is much more constricting than it was in 1968. “It’s not just a matter of having accepted federal money. If the City accepts a loan from the FAA, then at best, it is 20 years from the time the last loan is paid off before the City can do anything with its own airport,” Lewis said. Recently the FAA denied Green River Community College permission to locate its Trades & Industry program, which includes aviation training, at the

airport. That’s because it considers welding a use incompatible with an airport. This rubbed nerves raw that were already enflamed by FAA control. Lewis suggested Council could make a statement that it would no longer accept federal money and “start the clock ticking” on when there might be some alternative made of the airport if the FAA continues to be so strict in its interpretations. “Our ability to use the property as we so desire is up to the FAA and not the City of Auburn,” Lewis said. “It doesn’t sound very fair. … This gives me heartburn,” said Councilwoman Largo Wales.

Sun and the City of Pacific. Sun is under investigation by the King County Sheriff ’s Office for destroying City documents. “Since I have been unwilling to act at Mayor Sun’s direction when his directives and actions violate the law, my duties and responsibilities, or the integrity of the City, and I have reported my concerns to him, to the City Attorney and Councilmembers, Mayor Sun has retaliated against me,”

Wiech wrote. “... I feel he will continue to retaliate against me,” she added. In addition to the spectre of another investigation, Sun also learned at the council meeting that his plans to reorganize the City administration and to prevent cancellation of the City’s insurance and cut costs were dead in the water. On July 17, Sun proposed in a public meeting to stave off threatened cancellation

of the City’s insurance by forging an interlocal agreement with Auburn. The plan called for Pacific to outsource critical services in vacant positions in public works, planning and city engineering, to Auburn. According to Auburn City officials, however, the proposal just didn’t pan out financially, given the scope of work needed by Pacific. “One of the things we had to grapple with that causes us to have a difficult time

is we don't have any extra staff,” Auburn City Attorney Dan Heid said Tuesday. “The City wants to be able to work with other cities and help each other out. We just have a tough time working with the limited staff we have. It makes it difficult to help them out.” Mayor Pete Lewis added: "I told the mayor that I had asked our public works and planning directors if they had the people, and that they had told me that, if we were going to contract out, we would have to hire somebody,” Lewis said. “If Pacific was going to pay for the hiring, it would work, but if somebody has to be hired, Pacific should do it. Otherwise, it doesn't make much sense." Pacific was notified in a letter on July 2 that its insurance policy will be cancelled on Dec. 31, unless “swift, concrete and verifiable deeds to bring a more stable and professional environment to the City of Pacific” were made. Since Sun took office in January, six department heads in Pacific have either quit or Sun has fired them. Sun declined to comment after Monday’s City Council meeting.

Tensions rise over City’s mangy median By ROBERT WHALE

What to do about that pesky traffic median north of the Highway 18 interchange on Auburn Way South is a question that reared its homely head once again at a City meeting Monday, where passionate advocacy boiled over into unusually sharp words. Councilman Bill Peloza, who has had about as much of the scruffy median as he can endure, has said over the course of several meetings that he wants something done about it and he has not been shy about demanding that, whatever that might be, it be done Peloza now. But as City leaders over the course of Monday’s Municipal Services meeting expressed a preference for long-term solutions, Peloza grew more and more frustrated. According to Public Works Director Dennis Dowdy, there’s no money in the arterial street fund now to contract out a median project involving stamped concrete, an alternative that City leaders had previously discussed. Dowdy said that plan would cost an estimated $45,000. The median was built in the 1990s, and irrigation water is available there, Dowdy said, so the north and south ends could be landscaped with low maintenance vegetation, for example low-growing barberries. The center of the median, where time has proven that nothing can grow and survive, Dowdy said, could be devegetated and sterilized. Dowdy said bark and colored stones would make for good cover, and he has been working with the parks department on a plan involving their use. Parks department staff would perform the work, with the street department providing limited access to the busy area. Peloza repeatedly pressed for a timeline on the repairs to which Mayor Pete Lewis responded time and again, “it will be done in a month.” Largo Wales noted that when the median issue first surfaced months ago, it was

a “crisis mode” topic, but since then the City has established a committee, has begun a public process and has been working with parks department staff to come up with a long term plan. “I would really like to continue with our original direction and not start piece-mealing this until we have a chance to work with (City Maintenance Crew

Chief Mike Miller) and do the overall plan we decided to do and have been aggressively working on the last couple of months. What we’re lacking is a comprehensive approach,” Wales said. Councilman Osborne said an immediate repair, given the current closure of M Street, would complicate an already bad traffic situation.

“I vehemently disagree,” Peloza said of the opposition. “At the Saturday Rotary breakfast, five people came up to with ‘when are you guys gonna get off your … and fix that sorry entry to the city of Auburn.’ They said maybe we should get Rotary to go down at midnight and take care of it. “… This is an entry to our

great, More-than-Imagined city of Auburn, and you are treating it like it can wait until we get a standard. It’s ridiculous. I told somebody it looks like a 30th-Century war zone, with thousands of cars heading up to the Casino and city people going home. We’ve gotta take action, for God’s sake.” “Yes, it’s an eyesore,” Os-

borne said. “But I don’t think we need to be doing this right now with M Street closed.” “I totally disagree,” Peloza said. “We may not see a plan for another six months, yet that piece of … of a median will still be going. I’m going on record here that I don’t agree with these two members and I hope all the citizens call you and tell you what they think.” “That’s totally inappropriate,” Osborne said. The final consensus was to remove all vegetation from the median for now.

Missing Auburn woman found safe By SHAWN SKAGER

Authorities found 27-yearold Auburn resident Tatyana Khmara after an extensive search last weekend. At about 1:15 p.m. Monday, Khmara – who went missing from Pacific City Park last Friday – called her family after she reportedly saw herself on the TV news. Pacific Police Department Public Information Officer Stephanie Shook said Khmara did not know where she was or how she got there when she called. After Khmara’s family called investigators to inform them they had heard from her, they were advised to tell her to call 911. According to the Kitsap Sun, the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Department traced the 911 call and found Khmara at a home in South Kitsap. She reportedly had been camping with a 33-year-old South Kitsap man she had met last Friday at Pacific City Park and afterward went to his home.

Khmara was reported missing last Saturday after she failed to report for work and her car was found abandoned in the parking lot. Police dogs tracked her scent from her car to the banks of the White River. Her disappearance prompted a search of the area and the river with swift water rescue teams, King County Search and Rescue volunteers and the King County Sheriff ’s Office Guardian One helicopter. Khmara’s younger brother, Dmitri Khmara, who was at Pacific City Park on Monday waiting for news, said he had last seen his sister last Friday in the company of an unidentified man. “She seemed to know him,” he said. “I was mad because he was some new guy and she was comfortable with him. They had a case of beer. I was mad, but she seemed comfortable with him, so I just told her to be cautious and I left.” After an interview with a Pacific Police Department detective on Monday, Khmara was reunited with her family.

Confiscated stills, old booze bottles, signage, newspapers and photographs shake the dust and cobwebs off of Prohibition and make a present tense of the era in American history, 1920 to 1933, when the government tried to turn off the tap before opening it again with the 21st Amendment outlawing prohibition. The exhibit opened Wednesday and closes Nov. 4. Visitors will learn how the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, the KKK, select Unions, Seventh-day Adventists, and the International Workers of the World formed an unlikely alliance to fight for a prohibition on the sale and manufacture of alcohol in Washington state (1916). Because it wasn’t yet against the law to drink the stuff, however, independent entrepreneurs, organized crime, local politicians and police became players, providing the public with the fermented stuff it craved. On the other side of the law, cops worked tirelessly and fearlessly — though in vain – to see to it that the thirsty public didn’t get a drop.

Museum seeks volunteers for field trip program at Olson Farm By ROBERT WHALE

Needed – people to conduct tours of the Mary Olson Farm and teach those curious tots about farming. That’s the cry going out from the White River Valley Museum staff, whose ranks of volunteer docents have thinned over time and with attrition. “We’ve lost a few key volunteers, we’ve had some that have had illnesses, some that can’t volunteer any more, people that have passed away,” said Rachael Burrum, curator of education for the museum. “So our corps of volunteers has diminished a bit, and we have lost some of our key tour guides to conduct field trips.” During the fall every first grader and every sixth grader in the Auburn School District visits the Mary Olson farm on Green River Road. To make that happen, Burrum said, the museum needs a healthy brace of guides. What the museum is looking for, Burrum said, is new faces, folks who might be interested in teaching school children about farm history, farming sustainability, healthy

The idea, Burrum said, is to have a large corps so that no one feels he or she is being asked to do too much, to the neglect of other responsibilities in their busy lives. Volunteers are carefully, thoroughly trained in all the information they need to get across to the young ’uns, Burrum said. “We have stations at the farm, so the docents will be in charge of one station during the field trips, teaching the kids, for instance where milk comes from, how milk gives us cream and how cream is made into butter. We have a large range of subjects, but no one person has to know everything about everything.” The field trips are aligned with curriculumbased assessments to supplement what kids learn in the classroom with real-life experiences. Prospective volunteers should give the museum a call at (253) 288-7433 to get a volunteer application. If it feels like a good fit to WRVM staff, applicants will be invited to the annual volunteer training on Aug. 30 at the farm.

Do you believe that if the current administration remains in office, our health care system will cost more? Do you believe that Medicare recipients will receive less and pay more? Do you believe there will be “death panels?” Do you believe you will be able to keep your same doctor? Do you believe there will be a serious doctor shortage? Do you believe your insurance premiums will continue to increase yearly by as much as 10 percent? Do you believe our health care system is moving toward a socialized, government-dominated and-controlled system? If you answered yes to the preceding questions, you are correct. I have been a clinical physician for nearly 14 years. Over the past two years, I am seeing first hand a disturbing trend in the health care field. This country deserves to remain the leader in health care, not regress. This country was founded on freedom of choice, not progressive government infiltration. Every U.S. citizen should and can have access to exceptional health care services, without bankrupting individuals, families and this country. Simply stated, the new Affordable Healthcare Act needs to be repealed and replaced. There are many worrisome, disturbing and critical issues to discuss in reference to the Affordable Healthcare Act. This article will focus on Medicare, of which the following is only the beginning. I recently asked my patients if they believed Medicare would be better, the same or worse if the current administration remains in office and the Healthcare Act moves forward. To my surprise, the majority surveyed said unchanged. I am deeply concerned, as they do not know the truth. Medicare is in serious financial trouble. Medicare needs money to continue to operate, remain solvent and avoid bankruptcy. [ more PETTER page 9 ]

Inslee’s failed ways Jay Inslee, the Democrat candidate for governor, claims he has a book on green energy that Bill Clinton thinks is wonderful in his TV and radio commercials. Now Clinton might think Jay’s book is wonderful, but is that a reason to vote for Inslee? Jay’s book is a huge failure. Jay’s book ranks 589,000 on Amazon’s bestseller list. Now that might not be a reason not to vote for Jay. However, Jay’s book advocates a whole lot of junk science and using technology that does not yet exist. Jay wants us to believe in currently empty promises, promises that no one can yet deliver on. They are expensive promises that will cost the state billions of dollars. Jay was a staunch supporter of Solyndra, the bankrupt solar power company, of Evergreen

One has to think that Jay Inslee has a record of backing failures and would bankrupt our state. Jay has not shown proven leadership, rather the exact opposite. Jay has a record of choosing the wrong things and wasting billions of dollars. Our state cannot afford Jay and his ideas.

... Healthy Living

For Cynthia Lozier, it’s all about helping kids. The Auburn woman began organizing the Barbers’ Roundup a year ago, a one-day event in which needy children can get a free haircut, school supplies and new clothes before classes begin. “What I’m trying to do is make a one-stop place where a child will get their hair done, get clothes and new shoes and a backpack filled with school supplies. And have fun while getting them done,” Lozier said. “That way, the school has everything they need from the kids, and the kids have everything they need when they start school.” The Roundup returns Sept. 1 at the Auburn Food Bank, 930 18th Place NE. The event begins at 10 a.m. and lasts until supplies are gone. The event – with the help of the food bank,

[ PETTER from page 7 ] Unfortunately, the new Healthcare Reform Act cuts 525 billion dollars from Medicare. In addition, Congress is facing 1.2 trillion dollars in budget cuts this coming December, and on the agenda is a 32-percent cut in Medicare reimbursements to physicians. So, why is this important? Why should you care? Because Medicare reimbursements to doctors have continued to decline overtime, more and more doctors have chosen to “opt-out” of Medicare, which means they do not accept Medicare health insurance. Surprisingly, the government has no idea how many doctors in the United States have opted out of Medicare, as they do not keep data on this topic. On the other hand, Texas is just one of a few states that do, and the trends are disturbing. A survey of Texas physicians in 2011 revealed that 34 percent of doctors limited, or no longer accepted, new

Medicare patients, and 50 percent were considering dropping Medicare totally. A survey published by the Physicians’ Foundation in 2010 reported that 52.2 percent of doctors said if the Healthcare Reform Bill passed, it would cause them to close or significantly restrict any Medicare patients in their practice. The future for Medicare looks bleak at this time. By the year 2020, there is estimated to be an influx of Medicare enrollees in excess of 65 million. This is seriously problematic, as the supply of doctors will not be able to keep up with the demand. Keep your doctor … probably not? The reality is doctors continue to opt out. The current Medicare program is unsustainable, both fiscally and for entitled patrons, as long as the wrong decisions continue to be made by the current administration. I am concerned about continued access for seniors to quality health care services, and therefore want people to

Importance of resistance training We’ve all seen those exercise infomercials, claiming to get you in the best shape of your life in 60 or 90 days, right? Well, it takes a lot more than that, and it usually doesn’t happen until we make a serious change in our eating habits, follow a program design of resistance training and cardiovascular exercise and focus on living a healthier lifestyle. Last month, we discussed eating healthier. Now, here in Part II, the focus is on the importance of resistance training and building muscle. Below is a sample bodyweight circuit and resistance training program that will help you build muscle, boost metabolism and lose weight. During the workout, you will perform at least 3-4 revolutions of the training phase. (Go to: www.facebook. com/MadDogBootCampFitness for more information).

Warmup phase Check your resting heart rate (RHR) to be 16 bps for a 10-second pulse check. Jog for 60 seconds to increase blood flow. Next, perform a series of dynamic mobility exercises. These are a 5-10 second version of the actual exercises you will perform in the circuit. Do mild stretching as needed, not required if dynamic mobility done.

Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, SuperMall Walmart, Sylvan, other businesses and churches – helped 358 kids last year. Lozier hopes that was just the beginning. “It worked out fine, but we want to help more kids,” she said. “I’m a dreamer. I’d like to help 5,000 kids.” Lozier has received help from Lynette Stair of Won Generation for this year’s drive. The Roundup is getting help from local churches. Businesses have responded. Oshkosh B’gosh and Carter’s stores at the SuperMall will have collection bins on site up until the event. Both stores also will offer a 20-percent discount on any items to anyone who donates clothes or school supplies for the Roundup on Saturday. “It’s a lot of work, but when you see that the kids get everything they need and they’re happy, not ashamed to go to school because they have the things they’re supposed to have, it’s worth it,” Lozier said. For more information or to donate, call 253-3941966.

Set up 5-10 stations with names of exercises as aforementioned (see sample below). Make sure your training heart rate (THR) during each revolution is maintained around 90 percent of your max heart rate (MHR). Your MHR is calculated by 220-age = MHR. The THR is calculated by MHR x percentage. (Example: 180 MHR x

Cool-down phase Do the same routine as the warmup phase, but this time do “static stretches” for 30 seconds on each muscle group to improve flexibility and help decrease post-workout soreness. Check pulse to make sure its below 16 bps for a 10-second check. Remember also to drink water before, during and after workouts (8 ounces of water for every 20 minutes you work out), as well as get proper protein/carb nutrients back into your system to help facilitate post-workout recovery.

A common problem cited by many seniors is their inability to get a good night’s sleep, which not only leads to daytime grogginess but has also been linked to some potential health problems. Sleeping fewer than seven hours a night can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and type-2 diabetes. This should be a concern to people who sleep less than seven hours nightly. Primary care physicians typically do not ask patients about their sleep problems; therefore, people experiencing sleep problems are encouraged to bring the subject up with their doctors. Sleep problems lasting more than three nights usually have underlying causes that sleeping pills do not address. We are pleased to bring you interesting and informative topics regarding seniors. At PARKSIDE RETIREMENT COMMUNITY, we treat our senior residents like family members. We provide a caring, nurturing environment that encourages our residents to achieve their personal best. To learn more about us, contact us today at (253) 939-1332. Let us schedule a meeting and tour of our unique senior community at 2902 I Street N.E. We offer both independent living apartments and an assisted living facility. We have been locally owned and operated since 1972. We will exceed your expectations! P.S. According to a recent study, insomnia patients who engaged in moderately intense aerobics experienced less bedtime anxiety and better overall sleep than those who participated in other forms of exercise.

Track legend looks for sixth Mile victory Jim Penney aims to put 4-year-old gelding Jebrica into winner’s circle By SHAWN SKAGER

Nobody knows the Mile like trainer Jim Penney. With a record five trips to the winner’s circle in the Northwest’s premier horse race, Penney is looking to add a sixth with 4-year-old gelding Jebrica. The 77th running of the $200,000 Grade III Longacres Mile is Sunday at Emerald Downs. “I train horses always with that in the back of my mind, ‘Hey, is this horse good enough to win the Mile?’” said the 78-year-old Penney, a local legend. “And you notice I just said ‘the Mile’. I don’t have to say the Longacres Mile because you know. “The Mile has been a premiere showcase,” he said. “It is the big race in the Northwest. But not only in the Northwest, it’s also had national fame because it was the first race of any importance, a flat

ily farm in Yakima, Penney earned his first trainer’s license in 1954, taking over the reigns from his grandfather, A.E. Penney. Since then he has found success up and down the West Coast, fielding horses at Golden Gate Fields, Santa Anita, Hollywood Park and Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver, B.C. But his focus has always been on the home track, first Longacres and then Emerald Downs in 1996. His first Mile win came in 1973 with Silver Mallet, but it was his second, with Theologist in 1977, that he remembers most. “I had a good relationship with (trainer) Bobby Frankel,” he said. “He had won the Mile with You Wipi (in 1976), and I happened to go to Hollywood Park and he was

running You Wipi, getting that horse ready. He said, ‘I’m going to go up and win the Mile again.’ And I said, ‘Good luck.’ He asked who was running up there and I told him about a couple horses. And I told him there was a horse called Theologist. He said he hadn’t heard of that horse, and I told him, ‘You better. I won four in a row with him here this winter. You come up there and I’ll kick your ass.’” Penney’s prediction held true. Theologist held off the invaders to snag the victory. “I will always remember saying you can do it and doing it, especially against Bobby Frankel,” Penney said. In 2000, Penney won his first Mile at Emerald Downs with Edneator. Wins with Sabertooth in 2002 and

[ Penney from page 12] Flamethrowintexan in 2006 followed. Now he hopes it’s Jebrica’s turn. The horse was voted the track’s top 3-year-old in 2011 and comes into the race with a feature victory on July 29. “Jebrica is a home bred, raised by one of our clients, Rick and Debbie Pabst and Blue Ribbon Farm,” Penney said. “We bought a colt that was a year older than him, Peaceful Reign, as a yearling. He ran well for us as a 3-year-old before we lost him in a claiming race. When we saw Jebrica, we liked him as a colt so we presented him. We didn’t have anyone really interested at that time. Ron Warren finally asked Rick Pabst what his bottom line was for the colt and he bought him. “He’s just one of those silent little race horses,” Penney continued. “He’s not a flashy horse, or overly big. He’s not this and he’s not that, but when he’s right, he’s there. I’ve been very pleased with him. And I like that he’s a true route horse. He’s not a speed horse, so he won’t be on the front, but a mile is a distance he should be able to get up in

time for.” Jebrica, who will be ridden by Mile-winning jockey Juan Gutierrez, will have his work cut out for him in a field that includes defending Mile winner Awesome Gem and Grade II stakes winner Gladding. “Awesome Gem is the true old warrior,” Penney said. “You can measure off him. If you can beat him, you can win the race. Horses like Gladding, those are all horses that if they get a good trip they can win the race. With Awesome Gem, you just lead him over there. The other horses have a few more quirks and things that have to go their way to win the race. Are things going to come up right from them? Who knows? That’s racing.” Regardless of the outcome, Penney said, he was just pleased to have a chance to compete for another shot at the winner’s circle in the Mile. “I’m very pleased to have owners who want a little better quality horse,” he said. “The Mile is always our goal and theirs. We may not win the most races, but I want to win the right races.”

Auburn’s Kelsey Learned, a 5-foot-8 senior defender for the U.S. Naval Academy’s soccer team, has been selected captain for the fall season.

[ LETTERS from page 7 ] of children to marijuana. If the cities are truly concerned about safety and the potential of kids being exposed to this drug, then I think they’d want these access points to exist in order to regulate and monitor the disbursement of the marijuana. If it is the threat of the federal government that the city officials are afraid of, they need not be afraid – there has not been a single incidence where a city, county or state official has been convicted of any crime in this matter. It is and always has been the professionals in the medical marijuana industry that bear the brutal force of the federal government’s attacks. Here’s the scoop: The ac-

expansion project brings the library – at 1102 Auburn Way S. – to a total of 20,000 square feet, thanks to the $172 million library capital bond approved by voters to fund major improvement projects at KCLS libraries. Two sides of the original building were expanded and glass walls allow views of neighboring Les Gove Park. Additional features include a central reading area that encourages

cess points provide a location for patients to acquire the medicine in an official and safe setting. They also educate people on safe and responsible use of the drug. Teaching the patients regularly to exercise thoughtful responsibility, discretion, safe use, avoidance of operating machinery while medicated, keeping it locked in a safe place out of public view and far away from children at all times, and so forth. The pros for allowing and keeping access points far outweigh the cons. If there is going to be marijuana, why not have it in a location that can be an asset to public safety? Without an official access point, the patients may acquire the medication from just about

any location. Unregulated, unmonitored and without education for safety. The alleyway behind the local grocery store, the parking lot of a park and ride, a quick exchange at the bus stop – the possibilities are endless. With official safe access points for medical marijuana patients, these type of occurrences are less likely. Medical marijuana patients will get their medication in a safe place – which means safety for the patient and for the general public as well. Cities banning medical marijuana access points are in essence encouraging back alley drug deals exposing the general public to unnecessary risks and denying public safety education to the patients who will find and have access to the marijuana regardless of city policy. It seems some cities struggle with zoning for these type of facilities. Here’s an idea: Keep it in a well-lit commercial

zone. No growing of live plants allowed, no closer than 1,000 feet of a school, daycare or public park from property line to property line, and no closer than 1,000 feet to another access facility. Mandatory video surveillance with recording device and alarm systems installed. With these type of zoning requirements there won’t be facilities popping up on every corner and the city can be certain the facility is a safe and secure location for patients and the public as well. There is no reason why marijuana access facilities and a city cannot work cooperatively to educate the people and monitor the safe distribution of the medicine. With the proliferation of medical marijuana (now legal in 17 states and D.C.), it seems time to stop fighting against each other and begin working to monitor safe access and public safety concerns. – Jeanna Starr
