South King Fire and Rescue Lt. Barry Hassell stands at attention during a ceremony Monday for the Memorial Pike Pole, which honors firefighters who died in the line of duty. ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror

As voters await the fate of a levy to rebuild Federal Way High School, the school district announced substantial savings for taxpayers on a different levy. The Federal Way School Board unanimously approved the “rollback” of $10 million in district tax collections during its Oct. 23 meeting. The district originally sought the extra money in February because of uncertainty in the state Legislature’s ability to work out a budget. The journey started in August 2011, with the

board making a decision about the Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) levy, which was presented to the voters on Feb. 14, 2012. “That decision that was made in August asked our voters to consider supporting both the current levels of EP&O levy funds of $45 million, and the potential of adding $8 million in local effort assistance (LEA) to that tax collection,” said Sally McLean, assistant superintendent of business services. “That (LEA) funding stream was in jeopardy due to the state’s budget shortfall.” [ more SCHOOLS, p. 23 ]

than two dozen guns seized by agents and officers in a focus on a 20-square mile where police agencies know gun and drug deals are happening. “This was an effort that was focused on a hot spot in South Seattle and South King County,” said U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan at the press conference. “We have learned that often criminals take advantage of the fact that jurisdictions dealing with only themselves cannot deal with the criminal activity traveling up and down the I-5 corridor. Our office partnered with local (police) to make sure we are attacking criminals as a group.” Charging documents against the people arrested for dealing drugs list restaurant and shopping center parking lots in Kent, Federal Way, Tukwila and Burien as spots where drug deals were committed. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) and ICE’s Homeland Security Investigation led the investigation and took nearly 14 pounds of methamphetamine off the street as well as cocaine, heroin and prescription narcotics. The cases are being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the King County Prosecutors Office. Some of those arrested and charged, according to the U.S. Justice Office, as part of the hot spot initiative include: • Cedric and Terrance Jackson are charged with conspiracy and multiple counts of distributing cocaine and crack cocaine. When arrested at his Tacoma home on Oct. 18, Cedric Jackson had four firearms including a Tek-9; a Glock with an extended magazine; a Taurus .357 revolver and a Russian-made revolver. • Alonso Enrique Pelayo was arrested Oct. 22 after reportedly selling several firearms to a person working with law enforcement. One of the guns was a sawed-off shotgun and two of the handguns had been reported stolen in Snohomish County. • Jorge FernandezMunoz is charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and was arrested Oct. 17 outside the Tukwila Target store where he had allegedly set up a 2-pound methamphetamine deal with a person working with law enforcement.

Green initiative Mirror staff reports

King County Executive Dow Constantine proposed a “Green Community Initiative” earlier this week, aimed at helping “groups and businesses access lowinterest loans and create deep energy savings.” “The Green Community

Initiative is about getting helpful financing tools into the hands of groups and businesses in King County that want to make serious strides in energy efficiency, investing in renewable energy or reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” Constantine said. The proposal would allow the county to promote and help groups and businesses access financing tools for green projects. Those tools are currently provided by the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, and it’s hoped the initiative will increase access to those tools offered by the Finance Commission.

Freeway repairs Mirror staff reports

On Monday, Washington State Department of Transportation began work to repair the most badly damaged concrete panels and grind down several miles of rutted pavement on Interstate 5 in

South King County. With a budget of $6.7 million, a contractor will cut out and replace 64 of the worst concrete panels and smooth three miles of northbound I-5 between Military Road and S. 260th St. Nighttime lane closures will last through spring 2013. Crews will close multiple lanes of northbound I-5 overnight to cut out the 12-by-15-foot sections of concrete. Most of the concrete panel work is located south of South 272nd Street. Panel work will be complete by December. Grinding work begins mid-winter and continues through the spring. This project is paid for by the Washington state gas tax. Spanaway Lake High School

Federal Way resident Mark Knapp:

5 reasons why FW school levy is a smart move The Federal Way Public Schools capital levy that is on the ballot Nov. 6 is one of the smartest financial proposals for rebuilding a public school that I’ve ever come across. Here are five reasons that approving this levy is a smart financial move for this community: 1. By combining savings from the last bond measure, state matching funds and

Behind the scenes in District 30 The race for position two in the state House matches incumbent Republican Katrina Asay against Democratic Federal Way City Councilman Roger Freeman. The two candidates have differences on issues and also some similarities, but their style is noticeably different. Asay is finishing her first term in the Legislature after serving as mayor of Milton for six years. As a member of the minority party, she has sought to work across the aisle with Democrats to support legislation on education, transportation and property crimes. Her Municipal League rating of “Outstanding” was the highest of any of the 30th District legislative candidates. She is friendly, knowledgeable and comfortable with legislative topics in smaller groups, and less so in formal debate settings, as her style is low key and more conversational. Asay showed some unusual independence for a freshman last session by standing up to some party and city leaders on part of the Sound Transit light rail debate. Asay supports the Republican platform. She is pro-life, opposed to same-sex marriage, and feels marijuana should be a low emphasis crime. She is opposed to tax increases, but did not sign the Norquist No Tax Pledge. She supports the two-thirds legislative requirement for any tax increase. She believes education is our top priority, although she has questions about grading and is also supportive of charter schools. Asay would like to have half of any new revenue pledged to education. She supports gun rights, but would like to look at tighter laws on incarceration.

Roger Freeman has been on the city council for two years and is an attorney. For his council accomplishments, Freeman cites the reactivation of the MLK celebration, adding crosswalks on 320th Street to improve safety, and opposing a higher speed limit near Wild Waves Theme Park. Freeman was recruited to the race late by House Speaker Frank Chopp after the local Democrats had already endorsed Rick Hoffman for the primary. Freeman supports full funding for education and would like to hire more teachers. He is opposed to charter schools as it takes money away from public schools. Freeman supports legalization of marijuana and would like to see any money generated to go toward funding schools. He is opposed to the two-thirds legislative requirement for tax increases, as it hinders the Legislature’s ability to solve the problems facing the state. Freeman’s style and legal training come out in debates where he is comfortable, articulate and usually quick on his feet. At a recent debate, Freeman said as a candidate for the Legislature he was in favor of gay marriage because it is unconstitutional for the government to regulate marriage. He also said he supports a woman’s right to choose. He acknowledged that those positions were different than his positions earlier in the campaign. He said his earlier comments were a reflection of his personal beliefs, not his policy positions. Behind the scenes, there appeared to be an uneasy alliance with some Democrats due to Freeman’s late entrance into the race. [ more ROEGNER, page 7 ] Bob Roegner

Most of us don’t expect to become victims of gunfire, but recent history has demonstrated that public places in America can become battle zones when we least expect it. Emergency preparedness requires good first aid supplies and planning for a number of contingencies that we hope will never materialize. The tragic slaughter of moviegoers in Colorado also demonstrated that EMTs and other first responders are often poorly equipped to go into a crime scene and administer first aid — especially where an active shooter may be mixing in with a crowd of panic stricken victims. It has been said that there are three categories of people There is a definite call for EMTs, in such situations: wolves, firefighters sheep and sheep dogs. If you want to be the sheep and other first kind of person, you look for responders to be other sheep behind which to tactically trained hide when the wolves come. with firearms. A sheep dog, on the other hand, has to always be thinking about how to protect the sheep. That means knowing how to administer first aid during an emergency. You may even have to perform first aid on yourself if things get really bad. Recent history in Iraq and Afghanistan has shown that more members of the armed forces have survived gunshot wounds than in previous wars because of new bandages that stop bleeding as soon as they are applied. We have discussed Counter Narcotics Terrorist Operations and Medical Support (CONTOMS) in a previous column. There is a definite call for EMTs, firefighters and other first responders to be tactically trained with firearms. I learned recently that the National Park Service is training some of its personnel in CONTOMS. Many of our neighbors in Federal Way that have completed Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training also have some medical training — and carry a gun as part of their daily routine. That is one of the reasons that the Armed Defense Training Association (ADTA) exists: to bring armed citizens together in Federal Way and acquire better sheep dog skills. Here’s hoping the police, the firefighters and the EMTs will always show up on time to handle the really big emergencies. The worst case scenarios are the ones where the first responders are so busy responding that you have to depend on your own resources to preserve and protect your family.

The district will collect $10 million less in taxes in 2013 than was predicted last February, for a couple of reasons. First, the state Legislature backed away from its plan last year to cut levy assistance funds for school districts, meaning

that the district doesn’t have to fill that $8 million hole through the local levy. In addition, the board has authorized a refinance of older construction bonds. This means that the district’s total collections will not increase in 2013, even with the approval of this levy. 3. Construction costs are still low, but as the housing market recovers, they will increase again. Indus-

try experts estimate that construction costs could go up 20-30 percent in the next 5 to 6 years. Now is the time to get moving on this project. 4. This levy will collect $10 million a year starting in 2013, for six years. The estimated tax rate is 92 cents for each $1,000 your home or business is valued by the assessor. According to the assessor’s office, the average home in Federal

Way is valued at $240,000. This homeowner would pay $219 a year, or 60 cents a day, toward this levy. 5. Your neighborhood and community will benefit from the improvements to its schools in a multitude of ways. Whether you hope to sell your home in a few years, or plan to live out your days in Federal Way, approval of this levy is a great investment. Vote yes on the FWPS capital levy Nov. 6.

Rumors circulated prior to the second Federal Way Mirror debate that Freeman was changing his positions on the two issues because it had placed him at odds with the Democratic party. Opponents were quick to note the “flip flopping.” The Democrats did endorse him, but at the debate, Freeman was critical of Asay for voting with her party too frequently and said he wouldn’t necessarily do that. That may have reopened questions within the party, as he also said he may vote against the Democratic platform at times and in support of it at others. That may appeal to some independents, but another route that didn’t alienate his base voters might have been more prudent. The Federal Way Police Officers Guild endorsed Asay due to her support for public safety issues. However, there was also a secondary message — as in position 1, where city council member Linda Kochmar didn’t receive the guild’s endorsement due to unhappiness with collective bargaining issues, and Freeman didn’t either, likely for the same reason. In the primary, Asay failed to get above 50 percent, and the Democratic vote total suggested that she might be vulnerable. That now seems unlikely. Asay has raised significantly more money than Freeman and has utilized several different forms of advertising. Freeman has not received the help from the House Democratic fund nor has he been able to raise the money he would need to be competitive against an incumbent. With his council duties and full-time job, it doesn’t appear he has had the time to devote to the campaign. While an upset is still possible, it seems unlikely. Asay should win.

Federal Way resident Bob Roegner, a former mayor of Auburn: Kochmar and Roger Flygare [ LETTERS from page 6]

Thank you, police I just wanted to send out a personal thank you to the Federal Way police. Recently our business was burglarized. With their quick and extremely professional help, we were able to identify the thieves and take appropriate action. The police of Federal Way are highly trained professionals who deserve to be praised for the job they do. At a time when the police get far too much criticism, we need to always remember society would be total chaos without these brave protectors of the public. Thank you Federal Way police. You have our support.

Women have it, the Rogers don’t I was stunned to read the Federal Way Mirror endorsed Democrat Roger Flygare for state representative position 1 in this general election. I know we all attended the same debate here in Federal Way. The evening was a threehour event divided between the two state representative positions. Republican Linda

had the first 90 minutes. Incumbent Republican Katrina Asay and Democrat Roger Freeman debated the last 90 minutes. There was a six-minute break between the debates. Linda Kochmar has a long career of service on behalf of Federal Way on the city council and as mayor and deputy mayor, 14 years of service, while simultaneously raising a family and working professionally as a risk manager. Linda Kochmar was at every precinct committee meeting, tirelessly updating us on the affairs of Federal Way. Linda Kochmar spoke well on the issues and, for my peace of mind, backs the voters’ wishes — something our soon-to-be-ex-Governor Christine Gregoire and the majority Democratic Legislature did not. The Federal Way Mirror posts their endorsement on Roger Flygare based on his small business experience and no political experience. They noted in passing Mr. Flygare’s misstatements about his military service (re: two tours of Vietnam, when he revised it to one tour in Vietnam and one in Germany). Mr. Flygare apologized for the confusion, blaming it on a “brain fart.” Well, all righty then. I come

October 26, 2012 [7] from a long line of military men. My father was a prisoner of war of the Japanese. You don’t have brain farts regarding your military service. The Katrina Asay and Roger Freeman debate was equally decisive. While soft spoken, Katrina Asay has hard-won skills learned in the halls of Olympia and as mayor of Milton. Roger Freeman is bright, but not eloquent as stated by the Federal Way Mirror. In fact, toward the end, he stopped standing during his debate time and frequently asked the question be repeated. The women have it and the Rogers don’t.

million we willingly taxed ourselves every year from now on “is just our contribution to Sound Transit’s operating funds.” Wrong! Go back and read the ballot. It was for light rail. She has been in Olympia over two years. Has she learned nothing about this critical issue? My vote is for the excellent Federal Way City Councilman Roger Freeman, who is making Sound Transit his project on our behalf. Please join me in sending him to represent us in Olympia, and make your vote for Roger Freeman.

Send Freeman to We need Flygare the light rail fight in the Legislature I attended the debate where Federal Way City Councilman Roger Freeman did an over the top job debating the 30th District State Rep. Katrina Asay. I had expected that to happen, but I did get a big jolt out of Ms. Asay’s lack of information. I’m sure she is a fine person but her misinformation was too much. Answering a question about light rail in Federal Way, she told everyone the $13.5

We need a legislator with proven experience in working effectively in Olympia with members of both parties in the Legislature, ready now to continue to work with all to look for new approaches to the problems we face. For many years, Roger Flygare has been working for us as a concerned citizen, serving on the boards of local Little League and Farmers’ Market, as co-chair of the Federal Way [ more LETTERS, page 8 ]

I was excited to vote yes for levy My ballot just came in the mail, and while the political season has left me weary from spin and snark, I can unequivocally say I was excited to see (and vote yes) on Proposition 1, the levy for the new Federal Way High School. It appears that everyone — including the very few opponents that have spoken up publicly — agree that the school is in terrible condition and in need of immediate repair. I applaud the Federal Way Mirror’s editorial board for its Oct. 5 unanimous endorsement of the levy. In particular, I appreciate how The Mirror’s endorsement makes the solid case that: • The project will benefit from the district’s good financial stewardship (pointing out the $50 million in savings to date). • The district has engaged the public all year long on this topic, listening to every point of view offered — a process that I have personally observed at multiple forums and board meetings. The new school (and playground equipment and security cameras that come with the levy) will benefit all of us in this community. Please vote yes.

October 26, 2012 [9] [ LETTERS from page 8] I am strongly endorsing Linda Kochmar because she embodies all of these qualities and more. Her 35 years of dedicated service to our city in regional committees, community service organizations, and 14 years to city council including deputy mayor twice and mayor in 2010, has given us here in Federal Way impressive results. Linda has received many awards for her achievements, and is highly recognized as an excellent leader in business and government. She has high integrity with business experience as a nationally

certified risk manager, and she has the wisdom of many years of living, loving her community, suffering loss, and raising a large family. She knows how it feels to struggle, but also to overcome. She will fight long and hard for us all in the 30th District for jobs, curbing this state’s regulations which stifle jobs. She is a strong proponent of education reform to truly help our youth succeed in life, and more importantly be people of character and good citizens. Having six grown children and quite a few grandchildren, she cares deeply about the quality and effectiveness of education for our future citizens. I, for one, know of her long dedica-

tion to serving with integrity, and I trust her ability to get in there and win for us, getting any and all her jobs done to the best for all of us. Her many years of service has given her ins to networks and individuals that can benefit the 30th District like no other candidate. She possesses heart and wisdom that come uniquely with years of integrity of living and serving. Please join me in electing Linda Kochmar for position 1 of 30th District in our state election.

Letter from the mayor: City budget challenges By Skip Priest Mayor of Federal Way

While many cities are struggling with difficult budgets, potential layoffs and service reductions, the City of Federal Way’s proposed 2013-2014 budget offers a balanced budget that preserves existing programs for our residents. The “No Frills, No Cuts” budget doesn’t launch any ambitious new programs, but it will ensure that the services that matter to the community — from public safety to parks and recreation, from street maintenance to safe neighborhoods — will remain intact for residents. The city council and I will be discussing the proposed budget over the next month, and taking public comments on the budget in a number of ways. I want to encourage residents to share their thoughts about the budget and ask questions prior to a final budget decision being made at the Dec. 4 city council meeting. Reaching a balanced budget is the result of nearly two years of hard work by the staff and the Federal Way City Council. The previous two-year budget required layoffs and deep cuts to close an $8.9 million operating gap. After I took office as the city’s first elected mayor in November 2010, the council and I began to work on the 2013/2014 budget, agreeing that the city needed to alter its course toward a path to fiscal sustainability. The first step on that path was a major management and senior staff reorganization that saved the city nearly $1 million. We saved another $1.5 million by instituting a philosophy of “frugal innovation” — finding ways to deliver the same or better services at lower costs. In addition to the current savings, both measures provide ongoing savings to the city, making it easier to balance next biennium’s budget as well as subsequent budgets. Balancing the budget also required redirecting $600,000 of street overlay funding to the General Fund each year and reducing or eliminating almost $200,000 a year of various line items. A federal grant awarded to the city for 2013 will refill the overlay fund, keeping our street maintenance program whole, and

our streets in top condition. Public safety remains the city’s top priority with twothirds of the city’s budget directed to police, the court system and jail services. Parks, Public Works and Community and Economic Development also maintain even funding during the next two years, ensuring that residents will not see changes in service in these areas, either. The proposed 2013/2014 budget is, at its core, a cautious budget. We preserve a healthy “end of fund” balance each year, as recommended by the Government Finance Officers Association to be prepared for unanticipated emergencies. The proposed budget maintains healthy reserve funds for specific areas such as emergency management, which was critical in responding to January’s ice and snow storm. Caution is also warranted as there is a long list of potential fiscal landmines that the city may encounter over the next two years. In March, the state Legislature cut liquor excise tax revenues shared with cities, a move that reduced Federal Way’s revenues by $480,000 a year. The likelihood of the city budget being hit by additional state cuts, as well as federal budget cuts, remains high. Employer healthcare costs continue to rise, and we are seeing increased costs to the city from the regional SCORE jail facility Federal Way is a partner in. Looking beyond this balanced budget, there are long-range challenges lurking in the next biennium. The projections for 2015/2016 show the ending fund balance being depleted and the return of an operating budget gap. Once the 2013/2014 budget is passed, we will need to begin working on the 2015/2016 budget, and we cannot lose sight of the long-term financial challenges and the need to continue to contain costs. The city is not much different from households all over Federal Way who are also making tough decisions to respond to the challenging economic times. We have to live within our means, and this budget does that, controlling spending, while maintaining vital city services necessary to support a growing community and business sector as the economy recovers.

Lloyd "Mark" Markle, 76, passed away peacefully at his home in Federal Way, Washington, on Sept 22, 2012. He was born in Denver, Colorado on Oct 23rd, 1935. He graduated from the Kemper Military School in Boonville, Missouri, and served in the National Guard in the artillery division. He excelled as a sharpshooter. He worked for the Burlington Northern Railroad in various positions for more than 30 years when he retired. Mark loved bowling, also building bird houses and squirrel feeders. He enjoyed traveling to many National Parks in his RV and anywhere else he could go with his family and dogs. For five years, he and his wife spent their winters in Arizona before Parkinson’s Disease took its toll. He was always warm and appreciative of the help he received when he was in pain and suffering. He is survived by his wife, Jadanne (Enyeart); daughters; Vicki and Kelli (Markle) Clough and Brad; grandchildren, Morgan and Joshua Clough; 4 step-grandchildren and sisters, Mary Jackson of Wyoming and Alice Hale of Colorado as well as several nieces and nephews. A ‘Celebration of Life’ was held on Oct. 7th at his home in Federal Way. It was a sunny day which matched his personality.

• SFC Justin Eric Strom•

SFC Justin Eric Strom, 34 of Alpha Co, I Corps JBLM, WA died suddenly Monday, Oct 15, 2012 in a tragic pickup truck/train collision, which occurred on Joint Base Lewis McChord. Justin was born in Seattle, WA on Dec 20, 1977. Above all else his family came first and he was an incredible father to Shyanne, Peter, Michael and Jackson. This last year was extra special for Shyanne and Michael because their Dad, whom they worshipped, was finally able to transfer to JBLM from Ft Bragg, NC and be near their home in Puyallup.

Justin graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in Federal Way. He served in the army for the last 12 years, which included 2 deployments to Iraq and 1 deployment to Pakistan. We are so proud of Justin, our hero. He is survived by his beloved family: his wife Tonya; his children Shyanne, Peter, Michael and Jackson; his brother Will and sisters Stephanie and Angie; his mom Claudia and step-dad David; his step-mom Britt; his grandparents Don and Lorraine; his aunt Sue, uncle Eric and aunt Susan and uncles Brian and Chris; his nephew Cameron and niece Brooklyn; and his many cousins. He was preceded in death by his Dad, Mike. We cherish the time we had with Justin and he is forever in our hearts. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 27 at 11am will be located at Westhill Church in Auburn.

YES on 1240 Will Give More Washington Students A Chance To Succeed Initiative 1240 will allow up to 40 public charter schools in Washington state over the next five years. Charter schools are public schools that are free and open to all students, with the same teacher certification requirements and academic standards as traditional public schools, and funded based on

student enrollment just like other public schools. However, charter schools allow teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of students, which is especially important for students who are not succeeding in traditional schools. Please join us in voting YES on 1240.

Parents, Teachers, Civic & Education Leaders Urge YES on 1240

“Public charter schools across the country have a proven track record of helping students succeed, especially those at risk of falling through the cracks. Initiative 1240 brings the best of what works in other states to Washington.“ Dr. Sam Smith Former President Washington State University

“Public charter schools allow teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of students, especially students who aren’t succeeding in traditional public school settings. That’s why I support a YES vote on 1240.” Joan Ferrigno Public High School Principal Seattle

“As a parent of two young children, I understand that every child learns differently. I-1240 provides Washington parents more options to find the best learning environment for our children.” Tania de Sá Campos Public School Parent and Elementary School Parent Volunteer Seattle

“I’ve studied public charter schools across the country, and I support a YES vote on 1240. Initiative 1240 is a well-written law that requires strict accountability and annual performance reviews. And 1240 ensures that public funding stays with public schools– following students just as it does now.” Professor Paul T. Hill, Ph.D. University of Washington Founder, Center on Reinventing Public Education

“As a public school teacher, I’m a strong believer in public education. That’s why I support a YES vote on 1240, to allow public charter schools in Washington. Charter schools give teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of our students… and more options to help them succeed.” Chris Eide Public School Teacher and Co-Founder, Teachers United

“As a proud graduate of Tacoma Public Schools, an advocate for public education and an elected official who cares deeply about our city and state’s future, I urge you to join me and cast your vote for Initiative 1240.” Marilyn Strickland Mayor, City of Tacoma Member, Public Education Task Force U.S. Conference of Mayors

Halloween safety tips in Federal Way Courtesy of the Federal Way Police Department

Halloween is a fun holiday for children, but for parents, trick or treat time can be a little scary. Concerns about children’s safety and the load of goodies they return home with can distract from the evening’s festivities. Do not fear! By following a few safety tips, you can ensure that Halloween will be a great time for all. There are several areas of concern for citizens to consider as Halloween approaches. • Proper attire: Ensure that costumes fit properly, reflect light and are fire resistant. The costume should complement the current weather conditions. Avoid

cumbersome masks. Do not carry fake swords, knives or guns that look authentic. Children should go out during daylight hours unless accompanied by a responsible adult. • Group activity: Plan your route. Always trick or treat in groups with an adult. Take a flashlight. Stay on sidewalks and in lighted areas. Obey traffic signals, use crosswalks and do not jaywalk. Drive slowly all evening. Be alert to creatures that may cross your path. • Familiar area: Visit familiar neighbors, avoid the unknown. Only visit well-lighted houses. Never enter a home of a stranger, or accept a ride from a stranger. If the area looks scary, stay away. Tell your

Celski shatters skating world record Swimming:

Ramey wins two, Church takes diving By CASEY OLSON

Federal Way 22-year-old J.R. Celski won the 500 meters in a world-record time of 39.937 at the Samsung ISU Short Track World Cup Sunday in Calgary. Celski also finished third in the 1,000 meters a day earlier. file photo

Federal Way 22-year-old first-ever skater to finish 500 in under 40 seconds By CASEY OLSON

Federal Way’s J.R. Celski can now call himself a world record holder. The 22-year-old short track speedskater set a world record in the final of the 500 meters at the Samsung ISU Short Track World Cup in Calgary, Alberta on Sunday. Celski won the race in a time of 39.937 seconds to become the first-ever skater to finish the 500 in under 40 seconds. His time surpasses the mark of 40.344 set by Russian Vladimir Grigorev in a preliminary heat Friday in Calgary. Canadian Charles Hamelin was runner-up in the final in 40.420. “I wasn’t really expecting to go

that fast today because it’s been a long weekend of racing,” Celski said Sunday after the race. “Ice kind of tends to break down over time, but it held its ground and I’m really excited to come out with that world record today.” In all, the United States team left Calgary with three medals, including Celski’s bronze from Saturday’s 1000-meter finals. Grigorev won the gold in the event, followed by Canada’s Olivier Jean. “I set up my pass with two laps to go and just tried to stay on my feet for the rest of the race,” Celski said about the 500-meter final. “I still can’t believe it, but I think it will sink in (during) the next couple of days.” The next stop for Celski and the rest of Team USA is Montreal, where the World Cup gets underway Friday. There are also World Cup races scheduled in Japan, China, Sweden, Russia, Germnay and the World Championships will

For the third year in a row, Li and Song finished first and second at the two-day 4A SPSL Medalist Tournament at the Golf Mountain Golf Complex in Gorst. But, for the second year in a row, it was

Li who ran away from Song and the rest of the field to win the SPSL title. Li fired an ultra-impressive two-day total of 133 to easily outdistance Song, who finished with a 141 Alexus Song total at Gold Mountain. The finish pretty much mimicked what happened last year at the SPSL Tournament. Li beat Song by 14 strokes to win the 2011 title. The pair tied atop the leader board dur[ more golf page 22 ]

be held in Hungary Aug. 3, 2013. Celski is finally healthy after batting injury problems for the last couple years. He suffered a broken ankle last year and, as a 19-yearold, Celski had a 6-inch gash sliced into his left thigh at the 2010 U.S. Olympic Trials. The cut, caused by a skate, required 60 stitches to close. But Celski had acquired enough points to qualify for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, where he won two bronze medals just five months later. Following the 2010 games, Celski took a year off from skating to complete a 90-minute documentary about the Seattle-area hip-hop scene. Celski’s skating career started as a 4-year-old inline skater at Federal Way’s Pattison’s West with his father, Bob, and two brothers, Chris and David. After numerous inline national championships, Celski switched over to the ice as a 12-year-old.

Kenna Ramey’s quest to repeat as a state swimming champion got started last weekend at the 2012 Class 4A Girls South Puget Sound League Championship Meet at Rogers High School. Ramey, a Federal Way High School junior, won SPSL titles in the 50-yard freestyle and 100 butterfly Saturday at the 16-team meet, which was the first of three postseason championships for swimmers. Next up is the West Central/ Southwest District Meet Oct. 26-27 Kenna Ramey at Curtis High School and the season culminates at the State Championships Nov. 9-10 at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center. At the SPSL meet, Ramey dominated the 50 free, winning the shortest race of the day by almost a second. Ramey swam a time of 24.52 to outdistance second-place finisher, Mount Rainier’s Courtney Larson (25.43). Ramey’s state-winning time a season ago was 23.62. Ramey also dominated the butterfly Saturday at Rogers, winning the race by almost three seconds. Ramey’s time (58.87) was the only swim under one minute. Mount Rainier’s Jackie Beal finished second in the race in a time of 1:01.84. But Ramey wasn’t the only Federal Way school district athlete to bring home an SPSL title. Jefferson senior Shelby Church won the [ more swimming page 23 ]

Football: Unbeaten Eagles soar over Auburn, Curtis up next By CASEY OLSON

There was an opinion rolling around before Friday night’s game between the second-ranked and unbeaten Federal Way football team and the Auburn Trojans. An opinion that the Trojans would give the Eagles a tough time. That didn’t materialize on the field at Auburn Memorial Stadium. Federal Way moved to 8-0 with a 43-0 blowout win, which spoiled Auburn’s Homecoming. Next up for the Eagles is a game in University Place against the Curtis Vikings (7-1). The winner of Friday night’s contest will earn the South Puget Sound League’s top seed into the postseason and the loser will be the second seed. Curtis’ lone loss came to 10thranked Graham-Kapowsin in the second week of the season, 28-12. The postseason kicks off next week with the SPSL South No. 1 seed hosting the fifth seed from the Kingco. The second-seed will host the third-place team from the Greater St. Helen’s League. The win over Auburn snapped a six-game winning streak by the Trojans, who lost their seasonopener to Kentwood. The Eagles got a huge game from senior running back Zeek McNeal. McNeal ran for a career-high 271 yards on just nine carries, including touchdown runs of 92, 21 and 56 yards. He had 226 yards and all three of his touchdowns came in the first half. McNeal’s huge half helped Federal Way jump out to a commanding 36-0 lead at halftime. McNeal missed the Eagles’ game last week against Spanaway Lake attending a six-day conference on national security in Washington D.C. The scoring started Friday night with a safety after a bad snap to the Auburn punter rolled out of

the endzone. Sophomore Chico McClatcher added a 44-yard run and senior fullback Rod Jones also had a pair of short touchdown runs, to go along with McNeal’s three scores. The Eagles finished the game with an eye-popping 404 yards and punted only once during the game. Auburn had just 79 yards of total offense and didn’t complete a pass in 13 attempts. Federal Way also had three interceptions and recovered one fumble. The game took a somber tone when two of Auburn’s best players were sent to the hospital in the first half. Harold Lee, the Trojans’ leading scorer, was carted off the field with a concussion early in the second quarter when he was hit hard returning a kickoff. Later in the half, Auburn’s starting quarterback, Brier Atkinson, was hurt after getting blocked to the ground following an interception. Both players are expected back when the Trojans start the postseason next week. Jefferson— The Raiders grinded out a huge win Oct. 18 over the Kentridge Chargers, 12-6, at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. The Raiders’ Young Kim scored the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 3-yard run to break a 6-6 tie. The victory moved the Raiders (3-4 SPSL North, 3-5 overall) into fifth place in the North, smack dab into the postseason mix. The top-five teams from the North Division move on to the playoffs. Jefferson can clinch fourth place in the North with a victory over the Tahoma Bears (4-3) tonight at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. The fifth-place team from the North will have to play a pig-tail game with the fifth-place team from the SPSL South. The winner advances to take on the champion of the KingCo League in the playin round of the state tournament.

Federal Way junior Keenan Curran runs the ball through the Auburn defense during the Eagles’ 43-0 win over the Trojans Friday night at Auburn Memorial Stadium. The Eagles will take on Curtis tonight for the SPSL South title. rachel ciampi, Auburn Reporter Last week, the Raiders fell behind 6-0 after Kentridge running back Travis McGuire scored from 1-yard out early in the second quarter. But Jefferson fought right back to tie the game at 6-6 on a 1-yard touchdown run by Philip Cuadros later in the second quarter. Both teams missed extrapoint attempts. The win over a talented Kentridge team came just a week after a tough loss to Mount Rainier last week. Mount Rainier came into the game winless and had been outscored 306-58 during the first six weeks of the season. Decatur — The Gators (1-3 SPSL 3A, 2-6 overall) picked up their first SPSL 3A Division win Oct. 18 with a 31-30 win over the Auburn Mountainview Lions at Auburn Memorial Stadium. The game was back and forth all night. The two teams were tied

four different times and it looked like it would be five after the Lions scored on a 23-yard pass late in fourth quarter to make it 31-30 Decatur. But Auburn Mountainview missed the extra-point to give the Gators the one-point win. The Lions got on the scoreboard first during a crazy opening quarter when Curtis Scott returned a fumble 35 yards for a 7-0 lead. Decatur’s Kevin Young tallied the second defensive touchdown in a row when he picked off a pass and returned it 8 yards for a touchdown to tie the game. But Decatur’s lead didn’t last too long. Auburn Mountainview’s Kekoa Nahuka returned the ensuing kickoff 92 yards to put the Lions back up, 14-7. The first quarter ended with a pair of touchdowns from Decatur. The first came on a 14-yard run by Noel Maafala, followed by

Spencer Smith catching a 21-yard pass from sophomore Isaiah Hatch to give the Gators the 21-14 lead. Mountainview scored the only points of the second quarter to tie the game up at 21-21 heading into halftime. Maafala opened the second half with his second touchdown run of the night from 12 yards out to give the Gators the lead back, 2821. The two teams then exchanged field goals, before Auburn Mountainview’s final touchdown and missed extra-point. The Gators close out their SPSL 3A schedule tonight when they travel to Enumclaw to take on the Hornets. Beamer — The Titans fell to 1-7 with a 42-7 loss to GrahamKapowsin Friday night at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. No other details were reported.

Letter: Eagles showed respect during victory Amid the high profile of Friday night’s game between the Federal Way Eagles and the Auburn Trojans, there was more than a great game of football that was won by the Federal Way Eagles.

Early in the second quarter, Harold Lee, one of the star players for Auburn High School, was injured on a kick-off

Federal Way voters approved the additional $8 million during the February special election. However, in the interim, the state Legislature was able to come to an agreement on a budget, and left the LEA funding untouched. LEA funds are especially important to districts like Federal Way. It is essentially state matched funding for districts that have been considered historically poor. Because of this, McLean said the district does not need to collect that additional $8.8 million, and also will not need to collect an additional $1.7 million that was approved for the district’s debt service levy. The district’s ability to refinance on a number of its financial outlays is credited for the rollback of the $1.7 million, according to McLean. “Voters will think this is great,” said board member Danny Peterson. About 80 percent of the EPO levy money goes to basic education. The levy represents 25 percent of the district’s overall budget.
