They came to remember the 28-year-old Auburn Riverside High School graduate as a friend who had a knack for making everyone in her life feel special. They came to celebrate the impact she had as a fifthgrade teacher at Scenic Hill

And they came to remember her as a sister, a wife, a daughter, a friend. “Obviously, with this hall this full, it’s a testament to how great of a gal Stacy was,” her husband, Jason Ankerfelt, said at last Saturday’s memorial. “And how she’ll continue to be wonderful through us.” On July 19, Ankerfelt was struck by a car driven by Samuel Cruz. Cruz, allegedly under the influence of a prescription drug, hit Ankerfelt as she stood alongside her car outside her Auburn home.

Sam’s Club awards Pioneer teachers Sam’s Club has awarded 20 Pioneer Elementary School teachers with $50 reward cards to purchase classroom supplies that will help students start the school year off right. As part of the Teacher Rewards program, the local educators were honored during an recent award ceremony. In its fourth year, Teacher Rewards will have

donated up to $4.5 million to provide 90,000 teachers across the United States with reward cards that will help offset the cost of classroom expenses. The funds come at a critical time, as the majority of U.S. teachers going back to school spend their own money to ensure their students have the supplies they need to learn throughout the school year. “I would like to thank Sam’s Club for supporting the community in this way,” said Debra

Gary, Pioneer Elementary School principal. “Pioneer teachers all enjoyed and appreciated the lovely breakfast that was supplied. I was excited for them to be recognized and rewarded for their hard work and dedication to students.” The Teacher Rewards program is an extension of Walmart’s ongoing support of education initiatives that help students better prepare for their future. more story online…

Laundry plant expected to add 165 jobs in Auburn Green River earns $160,000 grant for Cultural Center


Hospital Central Services Association began work this week on a $26 million laundry plant in Auburn. When the business opens in 2013, the 144,357-squarefoot plant next to the Costco warehouse at 1500 M Street Northwest is expected to employ up to 165 people to launder the region’s hospitals’ dirty laundry. “It’s my understanding that they are mobilizing and doing a little bit of dirt work, and will begin faster, more intensive work starting [this] week,” said Development Services Manager Jeff Tate. Seattle-based Hospital Central Services Association did not return calls for this article. But according to its website, HCSA operates a large institutional laundry at 1300 E. Columbia St. near Seattle University that provides services to 11 hospitals in

Hospital Central Services Association started work this week on its laundry plant on M Street Northwest west of the Emerald Downs Racetrack. robert Whale, Auburn Reporter Seattle. That plant, which moves to Auburn, processes 20 million pounds of laundry per year and operates 14 hours per day, 364 days per year. Linens such as sheets, towels, and surgical scrubs are cleaned at the laundry. A February 2003 article in Healthcare Purchasing News cites HCSA as an example of how some hos-

City officials are not as polite about the matter. Their response to BNSF was when traffic ramps up to the point where the

The consortium, according to the article, processes some 2.6 million pounds of linen per year for Virginia Mason Medical Center, a 20 percent owner. Seattle’s Swedish Hospital is another major owner.

I told them it’s dumb. … There’s a new person in charge of projects at BNSF in Seattle who doesn’t want to budge. Their approach is ‘if there’s a new road and we say so, that’s what we are going to do. “…This is not so much

costing money as depriving the public of transportation corridor that’s long needed,” Lewis added of the delay.

After a survey of Green River Community College students two years ago revealed a need for a more complete grasp of how different cultures viewed the natural world, the school began looking for ways to provide a more well-rounded education for its students. That effort culminated last month in a $160,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to help establish a Humanities Cultural Center. The center will link Humanities courses with Green River’s professional-technical programs and facilitate collaboration with regional cultural institutions. “We’re thankful to the NEH for the grant and excited for the next steps to build a world-class humanities cultural center, said

Green River President Dr. Eileen Ely. The grant was awarded as part of the NEH’s Challenge Grants for Two-Year Colleges, a capacity building grant which requires the Green River Community College Foundation to raise additional funds on a twofor-one basis. “The humanities have a singular power to help people see bridges where they have only imagined barriers,” said Jaeney Hoene, project director and English professor, “This center will bring together thousands of students, teachers and community members who will recognize and celebrate their shared heritage.” To inquire about donations, call the Green River Foundation office at 253288-3330, email or visit the foundation’s website.

[4] September 14, 2012 [ sun from page 1 ] put an end to the ongoing crisis in Pacific that has caused the departure of all of the City’s department heads and the impending cancellation of the City’s insurance policy at the end of the year. According to the petition, filed by City Attorney Kenyon Luce and signed by City Council President Leanne Guier, “Since taking office as the Mayor of the City of Pacific in January 2012, (Sun) has neglected his mandatory duties in ways that have had a devastating effect upon the city, its personnel, and its ability to conduct business and provide services to the city.” The petition blames Sun for the vacant positions at City Hall – which include police chief (also known as the public safety director), finance director, public works director, city planner, city engineer and building inspector. “Since taking office Jan. 3, 2012, nine employees have resigned, quit or been terminated because of or by (Sun),” the writ states. “In most instances (Sun) has failed to take the necessary and proper steps to hire replacements for these positions.” By forcing Sun to begin the hiring process for the

vacant positions, the City hopes to stave off cancellation of its insurance. In a letter sent to Sun from Cities Insurance Association of Washington Chairman Wes Drago on July 2, the CIAW threatened to cancel the City’s insurance if “swift, concrete and verifiable deeds to bring a more stable and professional environment to the City of Pacific” were not made. Additionally, the writ would provide relief for the Pacific Police Department, which has been unable to hire for vacant positions, by lifting the hiring freeze Sun instituted. Since taking office in January, Sun has decimated the department by firing former Chief John Calkins and attempting to fire four officers who were involved in his arrest for trying to enter a locked city clerk’s office. All four officers involved in the arrest continued to work, although one has reportedly accepted a position with a neighboring police department and two others are actively looking to get out of Pacific. That leaves the department without two patrol officers, a chief and an evidence technician. According to Lt. Edwin Massey, the department’s ranking officer, the effect on the force’s ability to do its job has been “tremendous.” “When I have officers that go on vacation, that take leave or have to take care of their families in emergency situations, I have to bring other officers in,” he said. “But if I don’t have them I can’t bring them in. I have to find officers that are willing, or have to be ordered to come in and work overtime.” As a result overtime hours have ballooned, according to the department. Between July 1 and Aug. 31, 2011, the department logged 84 hours of overtime. For the same time period this year, the hours jumped to 353.5. Sun declined to comment for this story, but has reportedly allowed the department to begin the process of hiring a patrol officer and an evidence technician. If Sun does not comply with the other requirements in the writ, he must appear before the Pierce County Superior Court and explain why. If the court finds his reasons to not comply insufficient, it will issue a Peremptory Writ of Mandate. If Sun continues to refuse to comply, he can then be fined and jailed. more story online…

Like an extensive cable or satellite television guide, today’s grocery store outlet menu is rife with choices. But in a soft, slow-to-recover economy, the wide-open market is banking up closures, too. And with the recent news that Albertsons – a long-established, reputable supermarket chain – is downsizing, more of the market’s casualties are rattling local communities. SuperValu Inc., the store’s Minneapolisbased parent company owner, announced last week that it will close the only Albertsons store in Kent and one of two in Auburn – part of a 27-store shutdown in Washington, Oregon and Southern California. Debt-troubled Supervalu is shutting down 60 “underperforming or non-strategic” stores nationwide, an urgently needed move, it says to reduce costs and improve shareholder value. Supervalu is considered one of the more troubled companies in the industry, yet rivals such as Kroger Co., which operates Fred Meyer, is considered to be a better operator. “This is a downright shame,” said one mother, collecting bakery goods from the Albertsons on Kent’s Benson Highway. “This is a good store. This is where I like to go.” Many of the stores are expected to close before Dec. 1. While the company isn’t releasing any sensitive information – understandably so – layoffs are likely. Not all union workers will lose jobs; some workers could be transferred to other stores. Still, it is a blow, symptomatic of the costconscious consumer in a wobbly economy. More and more stores – of varying size and nature – are cutting into the grocerybuying business. That intense competition from rival stores has taken a big bite out of the community supermarkets ability to survive.

Auburn’s meager Sunday market While reading the Reporter I came across an article regarding the Auburn Farmers Market (“Our community thrives at the Sunday market”, Sept. 7). I am shocked that John Pinsker is under the impression that the Sunday market is thriving with growth. That is the furthest from the truth. The Sunday market has a lack of venders, a lack of people and a lack of growth. Mr. Pinsker should want a market that reflects the Puyallup Market and know that’s a market people would be proud of. People in Auburn should demand more from the market. Just a thought. – Mary Rividus

● Q UO T E O F NO T E : “These decisions are never easy because of the impact a store closure has on our team members, our customers and our communities.”

Mark Klaas



Some disasters are more likely to occur but have a smaller impact on our lives; others might have dramatic impact but occur so rarely that we sometimes forget they are a risk. In the Pacific Northwest, we live in a high-risk region where we can have almost any type of disaster. But with a little forethought and preparation, we can mitigate some risks and reduce the impact other

risks may have on our lives. But first, we need to know what we are up against. I have always believed in the concept of all-hazards planning. That is, using a consistent approach to planning, training and preparedness, regardless of the type of disaster. Having a greater understanding of what hazards you might face in a disaster and how those hazards might impact your life can help you more effectively prepare. [ more HILDRETH page 6 ]

Disaster Fair is Sunday

If you recognize what hazards you and your community might face, you will be less likely to be caught off guard or unprepared to respond. To me, this is the first step in becoming truly prepared. What types of hazards might you expect to see in your community and how would those occurrences impact your life? Flooding might not seem so important if you live on top of a hill, but what if that flooding blocks your way in and out, or disrupts any of the many lifelines we have (food, water, utilities, school etc.)? List all of these hazards and their impacts and rank them as to what is likely to occur but may have minimal impact, and those that may be a rare occurrence but could have a serious impact. Look at what minor changes you could make that might mitigate some of the risk. The homes that survived the recent fires in Central Washington are a great example of how what might appear to be a minor change can have great impact. What training could

you get to better prepare yourself and your family? What should you have in your emergency backpack? When you know what you might face, you can answer those questions for yourself. There is a lot of information that is already done and available online concerning local disaster risk assessments. Look at your city, county or state emergency management plans. I am sure that sometime in the past few years you have heard of the 3 Days – 3 Ways ( program. This highly successful program instructs citizens to prepare themselves to be on their own for a minimum of three days and to prepare by building a kit,

making a plan and gaining training. Once you know what you are up against, this website as well as the American Red Cross ( and the many state and local emergency management websites all have valuable information. How you choose to prepare is less important than the commitment you make to prepare.

[ klaas from page 5 ] Other chains have been victimized. Quality Food Centers, for example, closed its “underperforming” store in south Auburn two years ago. Dollar stores, large discounters and big-box retailers are in a food fight with traditional supermarkets. One-stop Walmart, Target and Fred Meyer have been expanding aggressively into the grocery business in recent years, compressing profit margins in an industry already plagued by low returns. “None are direct competitors, none will take 50 percent of the business. But if you add 10 of them, and each one takes 1, 2, 3 or 10 percent (of the market), it certainly is more than enough to push a supermarket into the red,” said Jim Prevor, a food analyst at, a website that follows the fresh food industry. Prevor says the traditional grocery store has become something of a dinosaur, and it is up to food giants to evolve and keep up with the times. Some have.

For costumers willing to pay a bit more, supermarkets are reinventing themselves, offering specialty brands, emphasizing fresh meat, bread and produce departments. They promote quality, signature food, friendly service, pricier organic goods, heck, even their wooden floors. Supermarkets, Prevor says, will continue to exist even if there isn’t one in every neighborhood. But there also will continue to be more outlets and choices – from warehouse clubs to convenience stops – for customers. The farmers market, meanwhile, is becoming a viable option. Walmart plans to open at least 20 smaller-format Neighborhood Market grocery stores in California in the next year. Where families go depends largely on income. For some, buying groceries is a one-stop adventure; for others it might be a coupondriven, three-store mission, like shopping for clothes. “Instead of just going to a local grocery store, people are saying, ‘well, this weekend, I’m having a big dinner party, I’m gonna go to Whole Foods.

I’m going to pay a little extra to get certain things.’ ” Prevor said. “Other times, they are budgeting and shopping at a (discount grocery outlet).” A bargain means different things to different people, Prevor added. Warehouse clubs offer the best bargain based on price-per-pound purchases. On the other hand, he said, that means more of a bigger out-ofpocket expenditure. But getting everything in the right place at the right price at one location is a thing of the past, Prevor said. “Consumers are diverse, aggressive. They go from here to there for best bargains,” Prevor said.”… And choices change based on economic situation.” The new economy and the evolving supermarket industry is upon us. What had been Goliaths in the grocery industry of the past now must share the food outlet territory with others, including the Davids. Albertsons knows as much.

“A patient’s comfort in my office is most important to me.

Don “Pacin’ Parson” Stevenson walked far so that others might see, dedicating his latest walk to his friend, 12-year-old Nicholas Premo, who was born blind and developmentally disabled. “I really believe in a few years he will be able to see,” Stevenson said following a reception at the steps of City Hall. “This was a good walk, one I dedicated to (Nicholas). … I love walking and find it invigorating, inspiring and rewarding in many ways.” The Lion Heart Walking for the Blind took Stevenson across half the continent, originating June 11 from Rugby, N.D. – the geographic center of North America – and ending in the late-summer heat at Auburn last week. Stevenson walked a part of the way blindfolded. He wore out five pairs of shoes during the three-month walk. The walk alone raised more than $5,000 for the club and research for the blind and sight impaired. The Bonney Lake Lions Club sponsored Stevenson, who had no shortage of volunteers to join him along U.S. Route 2. Stevenson helped bring awareness to the cause while helping the Premo family. The City of Auburn’s contracted solid waste hauler, Waste Management, assumes collection and disposal of solid waste on Oct. 1 in the southeast portion of the Pierce County Annexation Area. The area includes the communities of Portola, Portofino, The Reserve and Northlake. This area was annexed via Ordinance No. 5932 in 2005. At the time, the area was annexed into the city limits of Auburn, Murrey’s Disposal had a G-Certificate to operate in the area. The law provides that existing franchises are in force for a period of at least seven years

“We are humbled,” James Premo said of Stevenson’s generosity to his son. “It means the world to us. “(Nicholas) knows something big is going on. He doesn’t know what exactly.” Stevenson said this might be his last extensive walk. He is considering taking time off to write inspirational books and do more work for his church. This is not the first time Stevenson has walked this way. The former Marine, pastor, teacher and truck driver has walked about 50,000 miles for various charities since 1998. Long-distance walking became his passion after his retirement in 1994. following annexation. The franchise period has expired and Murrey’s Disposal will discontinue service on Sept. 30. Residents in the Pierce County Annexation Area will be billed by the City of Auburn for solid waste services effective Oct. 1. Residents in the area now will have recycle collection at no additional cost (including glass bottles and jars), weekly compostables (yard waste, food and food-soiled paper) collection with subscription, and monthly billing.

Gig ‘a perfect fit’ When Rachel Burrum, the museum’s educational programs and events coordinator, was booking bands for this year’s event, she looked to highlight South Sound bands whose music matched the retro feel of the farm. “We wanted to go with an alternative, country/roots feel for all the bands,” she said. “We booked Science!, who are a folk duo, Jessica Lynne who is more traditional country, Really Old Airplanes and The Fabulous Roofshakers, who are a blues band and The Cotton-

wood Cutups. They’re kind of almost a rockabilly band, but it’s all different genres that will sound great at the Mary Olson Farm.” For bassist Ryan Ramsdell of The Cottonwood Cutups, a trio consisting of Ramsdell and brothers Jesse Hill and Joel Hill, the gig is a perfect fit. “I wasn’t familiar with the event at first,” he said. “But I did some research and it seemed like a pretty cool event. So I talked to the guys, and they said ‘absolutely.’ ” The Cottonwood Cutups got its start just a couple of summers ago, when Ramsdell and the Hill brothers decided to expand on their campfire jams. “We’re all brothers,” Ramsdell said. “Joel is

married to my sister and Jesse is his brother. Joel is the guitar player and Jesse plays mandolin and banjo. We always go camping at the Cottonwood Campgrounds in the Hoh Rainforest (on the Olympic Peninsula) and we always brought guitars. About a year ago we officially formed and called ourselves The Cottonwood Cutups because of the campground.” Initially content with just covering the music of bands such as The Devil Makes Three, Lucero, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash and Roger Miller, the trio soon began composing its own songs, filtering their disparate in-

Auburn School District Fall Water sports triathlon this weekend The Auburn School District Water Sports Triathlon starts at 8 a.m. Saturday. The event, a fundraiser for the Auburn, Auburn Mountainview and Auburn Riverside boys and girls swimming and diving teams, features a six-mile ride beginning at the Auburn Performing Arts Center, followed by a one-mile run and a one-mile swim at the Auburn Pool. The event finishes with a barbecue at Veteran’s Memorial Park.

Auburn boys water polo back in the drink By SHAWN SKAGER

It’s 8 p.m. and 30-plus members of the Auburn Mountainview water polo team are going through the paces, practicing for the upcoming season, at the Auburn Pool. The Auburn High team watches from the bleachers. Its numbers are not as impressive, just a handful of kids and a coach, waiting for their turn in the pool. But for the Trojans, the representation is better than last year when they had no team at all. After earning a fifthplace finish at the 2010 state tournament, the Trojans combined with Auburn Mountainview to field a team last season. “They petitioned to join Auburn Mountainview because there were only five (players),” said Auburn coach Jim Isom. “And it didn’t help that the coach quit a week before the

Shawn Skager, Auburn Reporter season started.” This season, however, thanks to the dedication of Isom and the handful of players and parents, there will be a separate Auburn team. Isom, who started the Auburn water polo program in 1990, says the

program will participate this season, albeit with just nine members at this point. “I had mixed feelings about them combining last year,” Isom said. “I think they just put off what we’re experiencing this year, the struggle. We’ve had to forfeit one game and re-

scheduled another because we didn’t have enough kids eligible. They didn’t have enough practices.” Isom approached Auburn Athletic Director Bob Jones in May about the possibility of returning [ more Trojans page 11 ]

Lions gun for excellence on and off field


The Auburn Mountainview girls soccer program defines success differently. Not content to merely strive for greatness on the field, the Lions program also pursues excellence in the classroom. The Lions are known for their success on the field, including trips to the state 3A playoffs in 2006 and 2009, but it is the team’s three academic state titles in 2007, 2008 and 2009 that make coach Cary Davidson burst with pride. “When I talk about team culture, for incoming freshman, that’s what I talk about,” he said. Davidson said the program has been “blessed to have a bunch of kids who want to do well and pull the others along with them.” Emphasizing academics is crucial. “The first thing is to get a kid to buy in that it’s important,” he said. “I try to do a big sales job all the time and let them know how easy it was to write those letters of recommendation for all the girls on those three championship teams. There is no way having that (academic title) hurt them when they applied for college. “What I tell them is that adults who are going to be their bosses or allow them to go to this college or that college, they see high academics as an indication of work ethic and discipline and being able to follow through,” Davidson said.

When Jones offered Isom the job, he didn’t hesitate to accept. “I said yes without thinking,” Isom said. “This is my baby. I started the program. And even though it’s been awhile, I just couldn’t stand by and watch the program falter. I gave my baby up for adoption a few years ago and now I’m back.” Initially, Isom had only five players to work with, two shy of the number to officially needed to field a

[Soccer from page 10] Outlook: Last year’s record was a reflection of how young the team was, often starting nine sophomores and freshmen. This year, however, those girls are a year older, with a lot of playing time under their belt. “We have a different attitude than we did last year,” Ladage said. “There is a sense of excitement in our program, and the girls have humbled themselves with expectations for each other and as a team. We are concentrating on doing everything with expectations, from how we practice and conduct ourselves off

“We picked up four players last week … due to the parents and players recruiting,” he said. Still, the team needs more time to build the program, Isom said. “I’m looking two years down the line,” he said. “This year, I’m just trying to teach the game. In order to build the program, Isom hopes to overcome the “football is king” culture at Auburn. “It’s like football or nothing for these kids,” he said. “A lot of kids would rather be on the football team, even though they’re not playing. I have to figure out how to appeal to those kids who aren’t playing football the field to how we play in games. (On the field) we must score goals at a much higher rate than we did last year and mature defensively.” The Trojans look to Mizoguchi, one of the quicker players in the league, to key the offense. Karout, who was out for half of last season with a foot injury, also will make an impact offensively.

to get them to come out. “I want the kids who are not unlike me,” he said. “I tried playing basketball, I tried track. But when I started playing polo I realized, ‘Wow, I can do this.’ For me, being that 15-yearold kid, I always wanted to be jock, but I never was until water polo. Then I had something athletically that I was good at. “For me, it meant a lot. And it’s never too late to join, particularly for the underclassmen.” And if potential team members are concerned they won’t have enough experience to play right away, Isom said that won’t be a problem. “Since we don’t have the nior, forward; Ashley Enlow, senior, forward; Emmi Seelbach, junior, defender; Ilona Snyder, senior, midfielder; Kathleen Guiterrez, junior, midfielder; Katie Baber, senior, midfielder; and Kristina Nelson, sophomore, goalkeeper. Outlook: The Ravens finished just one point shy of making the postseason last season. Six starters are gone, including two first-team allleague players, and perhaps the best goalkeeper in the league. Lewis still is confident this year’s squad can succeed in the tough North. “With an adjusted formation the team will

numbers, they’ll play right away,” he said. “Sometimes they’ll play more than they want. If you want to play a sport, you’re not going to sit on the bench here.” The biggest draw for turning out, according to Isom, is just the chance to belong. “Kids are more likely to finish school if they participate, whether it’s the Key Club, the French Club or any sport,” he said. “They’re more likely to stay in school and stay out of trouble. And I can say I’ve had kids who probably would have gone the wrong direction if they didn’t have polo. They had something to feel good about themselves. They had a group they felt they belonged to.” have more room for creativity in the offense end of the field,” Lewis said. “Creative and unpredictable offense will be the strength of the team.” Lewis added that much of the team’s success of the is predicated on the defense improving throughout the year. “With a tough, intimidating sophomore goalkeeper and a back four that includes a freshman, a sophomore and two juniors, it is a group loaded with potential.” Look for Crimi, an all-SPSL North 4A second-team selection, and Enlow, an honorable mention, to provide offense.

We just feel like it shows a lot of their character to have that as an emphasis.” Once the foundation is established, Davidson and the other girls strive to make sure those who need academic help get it. “There is no discipline or punishment,” Davidson said. “We just try to use positive peer pressure.

Coach: Cary Davidson, eighth year Last year: first in South Puget Sound League 3A with an 8-2-0 record, 12-5-1 overall Top returners: Delene Colburn, junior, forward; Madi Clarkson, junior, midfielder; Abi Alfrey, senior, defender; Sophia Wagner, junior, defender; Emily Gordon, senior, forward; and Kellcy Emory, sophomore, midfield. Outlook: The Lions grabbed their first league title as a program last season. The team fell shy of the state 3A tour-

We make sure they all know they have help if they need it.” So far, it’s worked out well for the team. The 2007 squad won the Washington State academic title for 3A girls soccer with a cumulative 3.806 GPA. The 2008 Lions posted a 3.813, and the 2009 team notched a 3.788. “This is who we are,” Davidson said. “We want to be known for our academic success.” nament, losing to Columbia River 2-0 in the district final. This year the team will again rely on defense to keep it in games behind Wagner, a returning all-SPSL 3A first-team defender, and senior defender Alfrey. Both girls also lead the team as co-captains. In the midfield the Lions turn to Clarkson, a second-team all-leaguer from last season, and Emory, a sophomore who torched the SPSL 3A for 10 goals last season. Gordon and Colburn provide scoring. Between the pipes Anastasia Finney replaces all-SPSL pick Jessica McAllister. Beyond that, the Lions have several talented underclassman.

Walla Walla, Washington resident, Eunice H. Carlin, 92, passed away September 6, 2012, at Regency at The Park, 420 SE Myra Road, College Place, Washington. Eunice was born January 26, 1920, in Devils Lake, North Dakota, to Arthur and Ethel Cook Scofield. She attended elementary school in Devils Lake and graduated from Sheyenne River Academy in Harvey, North Dakota in 1944. On September 11, 1937, she and William D. Carlin married at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Devils Lake. After William died in 1975 in Auburn, for a period of time between 1977 and 1992, she worked as a personal caregiver, both in client’s homes and in her own home. She and William were rock hounds, a hobby they shared with their sons Terry and Roger; and they also collected a beautiful selection of sea shells, as well as butterflies and stamps.
