PUTTING HIS GOOD HANDS TO WORK From ranch to farm, caretaker has followed an interesting life By ROBERT WHALE

Apart from the bleating, lowing and clucking, Auburn’s Mary Ol-

son Farm is serenely calm in the pale light of early morning. By that time a lean, wiry man, hands calloused by a lifetime of hard work, black hair flecked with silver, is already at work feeding the beasts, checking fences, taking his daily walk through the orchard to pick up fallen apples

for the Auburn Food Bank or for use in the farm’s cider press. Gary Moberly, who started work Sept. 1, says being the farm’s caretaker is “this retired cowboy’s” dream come true. “Mainly, my job is taking care of the stock,” said Moberly,

Developer moving ahead with plans for drive-in property By ROBERT WHALE

The Robertson Property Group plans to turn the Valley 6 Drive-In Theatres site into a 70-acre, multiphased, mixed-use residential and retail development, The Auburn Gateway. That much is known. Still unknown is exactly what businesses RPG hopes to attract or when the Valley 6 will close.

Locally Owned

But on Monday evening the Auburn City Council approved an ordinance rezoning four parcels totaling 11 acres of RPG’s property at 219 49th St. NE, thus fulfilling the development agreement requirements approved by the Auburn City Council in November 2011. Deputy Mayor Nancy Backus explained an oddity about the ordinance: why it had not followed the usual

protocol and undergone review by the Planning and Community Development Committee. “This was actually an ordinance brought forth from the hearing examiner, and it is a rezoning of a parcel totaling approximately 11 acres from … heavy commercial to … mixed-use commercial, and it is the recommendation of the hearing examiner that we accept that change,” Backus said. John Manavian, vice president of Real Estate Development for Los Angeles-based RPG, the real estate arm of the family that proposes to develop the theater property it has owned for more than 50 years, offered a glimpse of the project’s status. “We’re working diligently right now with our consulting team to set the parameters of our property and our roadway systems and surveys so that we can begin to lock in how I

The nights are numbered for Auburn’s Valley 6 Drive-In Theatres, which is targeted for development. The drive-in is one of the few of its kind remaining in the state. MARK KLAAS, Auburn Reporter Street’s aligned with South 277th.” The RPG buys private movie theaters and properties throughout the country and develops them into something different than cinemas. Last November the Council approved an ordinance and a master development agreement (MDA) between RPG and the City that set out guidelines for the development of the property. That allowed RPG to begin offering about 70 acres of property, that is, the Valley 6 site and

several adjacent properties at the city’s north end, for office, retail and residential development. The Auburn Gateway Project site plan included in the MDA shows a multi-phased development of 720,000-square feet of retail, 500 residential units and/or up to 1.6 million square feet of office space. It also calls for the extension of I Street Northeast north to South 277th. In the MDA, the RPG agreed that the layout and uses of the Auburn Gateway Project would follow these

strictures: • Other than common areas, parking and access, no multiple family residential uses will be allowed on the ground floor of any building, only in the upper stories of multistory buildings. • It must contain more full-service, sit-down restaurants than fast food, including drive-thru restaurants. • Gas stations and car repair service and parts business will be built only as part of a larger retail operation.

Downtown sculpture gallery almost ready Popping up throughout Auburn’s downtown are pedestals that will house works of art for all to enjoy. The City will soon initiate the first Outdoor Sculpture Gallery,

“We realized that we might not get any of it and that we have to talk to King County because they’re collecting money for a service they are no longer going to provide after Jan. 1,” Mayor Pete Lewis recently told members of the Municipal Services Committee. “We could be asking for funds unused to be returned because we do not expect the person who gets the license today to have to pay again for licensing when it comes. On the other hand, I do not expect to lose an employee because we don’t have the money to pay the Valley Humane Society,” Lewis said. Wouldn’t it be illegal, Councilwoman Largo

Wales asked, for the county to charge for a service it no longer renders? “That’s what we’re about to find out,” said Lewis, adding that he expects the county will return the money to Auburn. PetData serves the cities of Bothell and Lakewood and the town of Steilacom among its 45 clients throughout the United States. It will collect the licensing revenue, and after extracting its administrative fee, turn the money over to the City of Auburn, which will then forward 100 percent of it to AVHS. Emails and calls to KCAC were not returned for this article.

[ MOBERLY from page 1 ] scratching the fuzzy head of Peaches, one of the farm’s two goats, and trying to coax Peach’s buddy, Dino, the farm’s latest addition, to munch an apple slice. Alas, the goat turns up his nose. Lining up alongside are Moberly’s other “buddies,” namely, Henrietta the calf, a weaning ring in her nose to keep her from nursing on 2-year-old Libby, Holo, a 37-year-old horse, and Mocha, a 19-year-old miniature horse. “I make sure they get their feed, I check and make sure there’s none of them sick or anything, and that’s where my knowledge of stock and stuff comes in handy. I know what to look for in the cows and horses when they get sick,” Moberly said. That “knowledge of stock and stuff ” flows by the quart in every vein of the 66-year-old former cowboy’s body. Moberly was born and raised in the tiny town of Jordan, Mont., about 290 miles northeast of Bozeman. His grandfather

homesteaded on the Montana ranch in 1894, running a thousand head of cows. “Jordan was one of those towns,” he says, “that if you blink your eyes, you’re going to miss it.” Moberly served in the U.S. Army, spending the years 1964-66 in Vietnam. He served later as a drill instructor and paratrooper instructor for the 101st Airborne Division.

Life as a cowboy After his return to the states, Moberly rode professional rodeo for 10 years. “I was what they called a ‘four-event cowboy.’ I rode saddle bronc, bare back, calf rope and team rope, so I done two timed events and two riding events. I did that up until 1972 when I got hurt real bad just before the national finals and wound up in the hospital for six weeks. I had broke about 13 bones, and was pretty well messed up from that trip. “I was married and had kids, and it had gotten to the point where I couldn’t make anything out of it. My best days were over so I got out. Rodeo is a young man’s

Puppy Up! Dogs of all shapes and sizes joined their owners and supporters for the 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! Walk at Roegner Park on Oct. 7. Micki Monroe and Allie Shipman, above, walk their dogs Tosca, Zephyr, Luna and Pixie. They were walking in memory of their dog, Rio, who recently died of cancer. Left, Mark Wayne performs at the park. The walk benefitted 2 Million Dogs, an organization that was formed on the belief that if two dogs can walk 2,000 miles to bring awareness to cancer, surely two million dogs can walk two miles. Proceeds from the walk went to the study of canine cancer and comparative oncology.


sport,” Moberly added. “There’s still a lot of old guys doing it in the roping events, but you don’t see any more of them in the riding events any more. You have to be a bit on the wild side to do something like that.” Moberly went on to build a successful trucking company in Montana, before losing it in a divorce. In 1980 he settled in Washington and went back to work, this time as a trucker. Here he met and married Jean. The couple settled into a house on R and Southeast 49th. They were married for 31 years. “Me being a trucker, Jean became a trucker, too, so she could spend her time with me,” Moberly said. The couple also spent a lot of time square dancing, traveling for 15 years throughout the United States while he trucked. When Jean developed emphysema and doctors put her on oxygen 24 hours a day, Moberly quit driving and picked up a full time job building truck transports. “After Jean died, I bought

me a motor home, figured I’d travel the country, but that didn’t work out. Jean’s last request was that I would go back to doing what we loved to do, which was dancing. She told me not to worry about her, that she was going to be fine,” Moberly said. He retired in March 2011 after his wife’s death and returned to Montana to spend three months at his sister’s ranch. Upon his return, he found a new square-dancing partner and love, Millie. One of his main tasks now, Moberly said, is fixing up the caretaker’s mobile home at the farm. “Once I move into that mobile home over there, I’ll be at the farm all the time. I’m still in the process of getting it ready to be moved into. It was left in shambles before,” he said. The advancing bite in the air is nothing to this Montana boy. “I remember 40 and 50 degrees below zero in Montana at the time I was living there, but it wasn’t so cold,” Moberly recalled with a wry smile.

any more. You have to be a bit on the wild side to do something like that.” – Gary Moberly, of Auburn, caretaker ay Mary Olson Farm.

‘Survivor’ series star spreads the good word He is the ultimate warrior, the genuine “Survivor,” the guy who is always up to the challenge. Michael Skupin of reality TV show fame insists he has more mountains to climb, more terrain to tame. “I’d like to try the Grand Canyon … hiking it, running it, swimming it,” said Skupin, who remains an adventurous, thrill-seeking risk taker at age 50. “I just want to discover the entire Grand Canyon, one of my bucket list items.” Skupin continues to cover plenty of ground these days. He is visiting the KentAuburn area this week, part of the whirlwind promotional tour for his book, “Discovering Your Inner Strength” as well as the latest alternative energy-saving products his software company is pitching. While “Survivor” brought him instant celebrity, his heart and soul have convinced him to help make life better for others as an inspirational speaker, author, coach and software engineer from Michigan. His message to others? Pursue and live your dreams, no matter how impossible they might seem, no matter how young or old you are. “It’s about living your dreams, taking dreams people always have had inside themselves and teaching how to make them happen in their lives,” said Skupin, who makes about 200 promotional appearances throughout the country each year. He made 412 stops 11 years ago after he competed in the second season of “Survivor.” Skupin became a star, the focus of one of the grisliest scenes in reality TV history when he fell into his tribe’s campfire on “Survivor: The Australian Outback” in 2001, and was severely burned. Unable to continue, Skupin became Michael Skupin the first person to be medically evacuated from a “Survivor” competition. Eleven years later, Skupin was invited back onto the show this fall. “For 22 seasons, I’ve thought about playing this game again,” Skupin told while

Building a new high school makes economic sense It’s too bad that the Jensons didn’t attend a recent community meeting at Auburn High, which explained why continuing to constantly repair the old building costs us more. We have updated our old house like they did theirs. However, we had only one heating system to replace. With all the out-buildings, etc., Auburn High School has nine. We have a front door and a back door and constantly admonished our four kids to keep the cold air out. The old high school has more than 40 outside doors with 1,500 kids going in and out every hour. The new building has one heating system and only two major outside entrances. Schools have stricter regulations to ensure safety than we have in our homes. The new school is planned to meet those for many years. You rewired your old house, but rewiring to commercial codes is much more expensive. You probably have one computer, but schools have at least one in every classroom. Attendance and grading systems require them. Computer labs are necessary to make sure our students have the skills necessary to get a job. You may not agree with that new technology, but go to any business, big or small, and computers are there and employees need to know how to use them.

Letters policy The Auburn Reporter welcomes letters to the editor on any subject. Letters must include a name, address and daytime phone number for verification purposes. Letters may be edited for length. Letters should be no more than 250 words in length. Submissions may be printed both in the paper and electronically. Deadline for letters to be considered for publication is 2 p.m. Tuesday. We replaced our house’s roof, but it wasn’t a concave roof that collects rain instead of sheds it. In the ‘50s that was the newest thing, but in our rainy climate, it doesn’t work at all. The new building will have a roof designed to shed, not collect rain. Look at the plans for updating the Performing Arts Center. It will still have the “stateof-the-art acoustic system” because the building will stay, but handicapped people will have access and carpeting and seating will be updated. Because some elementary schools are now paid for and bond rates are low now, this bond issue will not raise our taxes. It qualifies for $25 million in state matching funds, but only if the bond issue passes this time. Building now provides jobs right here in Auburn. Don’t our school kids deserve to have a safe and

comfortable learning environment without drip buckets and freezing rooms? If you have questions, go to one of the community meetings. The time to build a new Auburn High is now. Please vote yes for Auburn Schools. – Ken and Fern Valentine

Old school must be replaced As an Auburn High School alum, educator and parent, I am supporting the Auburn High School Modernization and Reconstruction Bond vote on Nov. 6. This vote is not simply about school pride, but is about making sure students at all of Auburn’s high schools have access to effective, efficient and safe facilities. The current structure has exceeded its service life and ongoing repair and operations costs – in addition to leaky roofs, pipes, failing HVAC and outdated and unserviceable teaching and learning spaces – impact our students each and every day. The building’s considerable fatigue is showing from the wear and tear of the six decades of operation. All students in Auburn should have the opportunity to attend a safe building they can be proud of. The quality of facilities is critical; it improves student morale and achievement, and school pride. Every year Auburn High School produces great students [ more LETTERS page 8 ]

Support the bond, and your community There is an old expression that “all politics is local.” Never is this axiom truer than in the upcoming general election where the voters of Auburn will be asked to decide whether or not to replace aging Auburn High School. Of all the important issues and choices on the November ballot, none can be more important than recognizing the importance of quality schools as a measure of a community’s viability. Modern schools are important to the “cycle of prosperity” that lifts everyone in the Auburn community up. Strong schools lead to more successful students, better teachers, stronger families, stronger businesses, less crime and

Time to usher in a new school Auburn High School is 61 years old. The classroom buildings need to be replaced. The Performing Arts Center needs to be maintained. It costs $250,000 a year more to maintain the old classrooms than it would cost to maintain new classrooms. Vote for the school bond to accomplish this task in the November election. – Dr. Harold B. Valentine

Clarification In Krista Parsons’ letter to the editor on Oct. 12, I was incorrectly quoted as having said the Auburn Performing Arts Center is “beautiful state of the art.” As I stated in my letter to the editor on Oct. 5, that was a direct quote from the Auburn School District and Auburn Symphony Orchestra’s websites. – Richan Jenson

Unsure its existence doesn’t alter its ferocity, its immanence, you wiggle your entire being, torso and all, hoping to quell the journey of this might-be apparition, hoping against hope a diversion will fit better its quest of utter destruction: you. Somehow you fall into deep sleep, dream of onions and six-legged sheep.

Patrick Burns. As an attorney, longtime council member, municipal court judge, neighbor and friend, Pat Burns has been a role model for what it means to be an upstanding community member in Auburn. His dedication to this city through the years, in one way or another, has most likely affected every member of this community for the better. It is people like Mr. Burns who make a town like Auburn a better place to live. As he leaves his post as our local judge, we would like to wish him the very best in his future endeavors. You have made such a tremendous impact in so many lives, we are grateful for the time you have devoted to this community. – Mark and Jana Silberling

Drive the speed limit at your peril The speed limit on the West Valley Highway through Algona has been 40 mph for at least 50 years. It has recently been reduced to 25 mph. I am not questioning who has jurisdiction over this stretch of highway or if this was a good decision. I am merely warning people that obeying the speed limit here is a very dangerous thing to do. If you drive the new 25-mph speed limit, it compels people to prove to you they have a middle finger and are capable of severe tailgating. For some reason, anyone who

He enjoys spreading his positive “glass is always full” gospel to others. From some of his observations, society seems to wallow in negativity.

Council’s good actions Glad the Auburn City Council has finally managed to get rid of reimbursements for “service club” dues for council members. For way too long, taxpayers have been footing the bill for meals and dues for council members who can well afford to pay their own way. Thanks to council member Largo Wales for pushing the issue through the Municipal Services Committee in order that her resolution move on to the full council, where it got six out of seven affirmative votes. I’ve been aware for several years that some council members have not taken advantage of this particular “perk” and admire those members who realize that just being an elected official should not give them privileges that ordinary folks do not enjoy. – Virginia Haugen

I’m not strong enough. I’m not smart enough. I’m not rich enough.’” Skupin tells them that all things are possible with good ideas, hard work and plenty of persistence.

A proven leader as past mayor of Milton and current representative of the people of the 30th District in the state House, Asay keeps long office hours studying the issues and analyzing the budget. She knows how to prioritize expenditures based on the “paramount duty of the state” — to educate our young people in the public schools. That is why she supports funding education first, not last, and balancing the budget. Let’s re-elect a proven leader by voting for Katrina Asay in November. – Marie-Anne Harkness

His heroes? “My dad, a true warrior who lost a battle to cancer when he was 28 and my mom who battled emphysema for 17 years and never complained.

admitted to handling stress effectively. Stress can cause significant physical and psychological symptoms. Examples include: chest pain, heartburn, headaches, insomnia, increased blood pressure, hair loss, neck and back pain, weakened immunity, anxiety, panic episodes and depression. Learning to cope effectively with stress takes time and practice. First, be sure to eat a healthy diet and don’t skip meals. Sleep seven to nine hours every night. Exercise for 30 minutes, five to seven days a week. In addition, spend at least 30 minutes a day doing those things that you enjoy. Examples may include: listening to music, reading a book, getting a massage, working on crafts, taking the dog for a walk or spending quality time with your family. Dr. Linda Petter

Does life seem overwhelming? Do you feel pulled in every direction but the way you want to go? Do you feel you are losing control, perhaps threatened or overly challenged? Has your joy and happiness been replaced with worry and frustration? Who is not stressed, especially given our economy? We feel stressed when demands on us are not balanced with effective coping strategies. A survey released by the American Psychological Association this year revealed that Americans are most stressed about money (75 percent), followed by work (70 percent) and the economy (67 percent). In addition, three out of four adults surveyed reported having physical symptoms as a result of overwhelming stress, and only 36 percent of those


mind of mad DOG

For many of you, the idea of 2013 coming around the corner and sticking to a “resolution” is a scary idea. Well, it doesn’t have to be. With a plan, commitment on your part and having some balance in your life, those New Year’s resolutions can be achieved. I, too, have struggled and continue to struggle with many commitments or promises I’ve told myself before the New Year. But I keep it in perspective. I try and go back to what I have taught many of my former soldiers and my current fitness clients: It’s all about balance in life. When we make a huge resolution, and other things like family or work become as important as our health and fitness, we are faced with prioritizing our commitments. So, what do we do? Instead of waiting for 2013 to arrive, I recommend getting a jumpstart and doing some planning in advance. If you have resolutions, goals, commitments or just want to improve an area of your life that you feel is lacking, try the following steps for success: 1. Write it down. No plan, no resolution, etc. can start without this. Be detailed and show your goals and objective.

2. Be committed. You can do this with by sharing your resolution or goal with others who will hold you accountable. Be willing to do the hard work. 3. Have balance. Keep things in perspective. Make time for your faith, family and friends. If you miss a workout or cheat on your diet, don’t sweat it. Just remember to revert back to your plan and get back on track. 4. Create status checks. Write down results in intervals. Every eight weeks, 12 weeks, etc. 5. Reevaluate or do a control/followup. Do steps 1-4 again. The key to success for any New Year’s resolution is your commitment. No plan in life, especially when you deal with changing your health and fitness lifestyle, can be successful without a commitment on your part. By adding the accountability partner or “battle buddy,” you are able to stay on track and receive feedback on your progress. If you follow Mad Dog’s steps of planning, commitment, balance in your life, and reevaluate, you too will reach those goals. Tom Schneider

Skate America comes to Kent BY MARK KLAAS

Sidelined with an untimely injury, Evan Lysacek won’t be competing in this weekend’s Hilton HHonors Skate America at the ShoWare Center in Kent. The reigning Olympic champion’s return to the ice will have to wait, but Lysacek says the show will go on with a star-filled lineup. “I am impressed with so many of today’s skaters,” Lysacek said. “I am obviously very disappointed that I won’t be competing. I’ve been excited and looking forward to it,” he said. “Things were going very well in my preparation for it.” Competition begins Friday, continues Saturday and ends Sunday.

The program is so popular today it includes 200 special athletes from cities throughout the area, making Auburn home to one of the largest Special Olympics delegations in the state of Washington. The Special Olympics organization spotted all the good that Werner’s been up to the last 13 years and last month named her King County Region Special Olympics Coach of the Year. On Monday, the City of Auburn surprised Werner, bestowing an honor upon her it hasn’t awarded to anyone in years – made her a Hometown Hero. Werner admitted the award caught her completely by surprise: she had no idea what was going to happen before she stepped into the Council chambers, in fact thought she was being honored about the Special

The showcase at the ShoWare is the opening event of the six-stop International Skating Union’s Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series. Medals will be awarded in men’s singles, ladies’ singles, pair skating and ice dancing. Skaters also will earn points toward qualifying for the Grand Prix final. Lysacek, who reaggravated a groin injury in training, hopes to be back in competition soon, targeting the Jan. 20-27 U.S. Figure Skating Nationals in Omaha, Neb. “The doctors assured me that it’s not a serious setback but to take every precaution,” Lysacek said. “Hopefully, this is not a long rest period away from the ice.” Despite Lysacek’s absence, the event features Olympics award. “I was very surprised and I’m very honored and humbled,” Werner said afterward. Clearly, Werner is a woman who loves what she’d doing. “I like working with the athletes the best,” Werner said. “The joy for me is watching them grow, not only in their skill sets in sports but socially.” As he presented the award, Mayor Lewis noted some special qualities in Werner. “Her selfless acts of dedication to the program truly come from a place of passion and love for her athletes and for others. In the words of an Auburn Parks’ employee, ‘every once in a while you get the opportunity to work with someone, meet someone, who’s truly remarkable’, and I would think that Jamie fits that description in every way,” Lewis said.

heralded figure skating champions, including 2012 World silver medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White, USA’s longest-performing and most successful ice dancing team. Other featured members of Team USA include U.S. champions Ashley Wagner (ladies) and Caydee Denney and John Coughlin (pairs).

Featured international skaters are: European silver medalists Ekaterina Bobrova/Dmitri Soloviev of Russia (ice dancing); Kaitlyn Weaver/Andrew Poje of Canada (ice dancing); World silver medalists Alena Leonova (women’s singles); Tatiana Volosozhar/Maxim Trankov of Russia (pairs); 2010 Olympic silver medalists Qing

Pang/Jian Tong of China (pairs); and World bronze medalist Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan (men’s singles). In Lysacek’s place, Armin Mahbanoozadeh will make his third consecutive Skate America appearance, having won bronze at the 2010 Skate America. Mahbanoozadeh, the 2012 U.S. pewter (fourthplace) medalist, began his season with a silver-medal finish at the 2012 U.S. International Figure Skating Classic in September. “I have been training for

this event because I knew I was the first alternate,” Mahbanoozadeh said. “I’m excited, determined and ready to go.” Mahbanoozadeh joins Team USA members Jeremy Abbott, the 2012 U.S. champion, and Douglas Razzano in Kent.

King County honors groups for emergency preparedness, response For the Reporter

King County leaders recently honored the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe and the Wesley Homes Lea Hill senior housing community for their commitment to emergency preparedness and response. King County Executive Dow Constantine praised the two organizations at a Sept. 26 ceremony in Auburn. The Executive’s Award for Community Preparedness is given each September during National Preparedness Month in recognition of outstanding efforts made by volunteer organizations to prepare for and respond to emergencies and to promote safer communities. “When a disastrous ice and snow storm knocked out power and blocked roads last January, the staff and volunteers of the Muckleshoot Tribe jumped into action to open warming shelters and transport elders and others in need, keeping their residents safe and secure,” Constantine said. “I was also deeply impressed by the level of commitment shown by the residents and staff at Wesley Homes Lea Hill to strengthen the resiliency of their community,” Constantine said. “In both cases, I am especially proud to honor

the spirit of self-reliance shown by the hardworking volunteers and to hold them up as a model for others to follow.” The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe was chosen for its quick action after last winter’s devastating storm coated roads with ice and fallen debris, knocked down power lines, and left many tribal residents in the dark and without heat for many days. Tribal emergency operations professionals activated their response plan, opening shelters and dispersing dozens of volunteers to go door-to-door to assess residents’ needs. More than 150 elders and other vulnerable citizens were taken to shelters, provided hot meals and a place to sleep until heat and power were restored several days later. The senior housing community of Wesley Homes Lea Hill also was honored. The 230-resident campus has formed a close partnership with local emergency responders, including the Valley Regional Fire Authority and the City’s Emergency Preparedness Office, which helped create and train a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) at the community.
