The second time is a charm for a levy to rebuild Federal Way High School. Early election results show the Federal Way Public Schools capital projects levy passing at 57.6 percent. The levy was first presented ELECTION to voters in a Feb. 14 special election, where it failed with 55 percent of voters saying no. To pass, the levy required a simple majority of 50 percent plus one. In the months leading up to the general election, the school district engaged the public through multiple forums to communicate the need for a new school. “This is a monumental moment for Federal Way,” Superintendent Rob Neu said at an election night gathering at Scoreboard Pub. He credited efforts by the community, especially Citizens for Federal Way Schools, for the levy’s passage. “I was confident it was going to pass, but was overwhelmed by the significance of the margin.” Built in 1929, the current Federal Way High School shows its age. Structural problems with the current building include poor plumbing, leaky roofs, inadequate lighting, extensive water damage and outdated restrooms that fail to comply with certain codes and regulations. The building has undergone multiple expansions over the years that created a security hazard with dozens of entrances/ exits, along with poor accessibility for students.

In the two races for 30th District state representative, early results show Republican Linda Kochmar leading Democrat Roger Flygare for position 1, while in the position 2 race, Democrat Roger Freeman leads incumbent Republican Katrina Asay. Kochmar is edging Flygare by about 500 votes, with 50.9 percent voting for the Federal Way City Councilwoman, according

Fuel tanker crash kills driver, sets fire Mirror staff reports

A Renton man faces vehicular homicide charges for his involvement in a fatal fuel truck crash in Federal Way. Firefighters and rescue crews responded to the crash at 2:30 a.m. Sunday on southbound Interstate 5, about a mile south of 320th Street. A tanker truck went off the roadway, smashed through a concrete barrier and burst into flames.

South King Fire and Rescue reports that the truck was hauling 9,000 gallons of aviation fuel. The crash killed the truck’s driver, who was identified as Joseph E. Bartkowski, 68, of Sumner. According to the state patrol, a Nissan Altima was traveling on southbound I-5 when the vehicle collided with the guardrail along the right side of the road. The vehicle came to rest in the roadway. All

four occupants got out of the vehicle and moved to the right shoulder of the road, according to reports. A Toyota Camry was traveling southbound and collided with the Altima. The Camry’s driver got out of the vehicle and moved to the shoulder, according to the state patrol. The tanker truck was traveling southbound when it collided with the Altima, veered off the road and down an embankment,

A 21-year-old Renton man was allegedly driving the Altima and was taken into custody. Drugs and alcohol were involved in the crash, the state patrol reports. A hearing was held Monday for the suspect, who was released from jail after posting a $100,000 bond. The suspect faces charges of vehicular homicide. As of press time, charges have not been filed.

2011 Boeing Supplier of the Year has 265 employees in Federal Way By GREG ALLMAIN gallmain@federalwaymirror.com

Orion Industries will move 265 employees to a new 100,000-square-foot facility in Auburn, according to the company. Located on 9th Avenue South in Federal Way, Orion specializes in aerospace products, including aircraft parts for Boeing. The non-profit company’s mission is to find permanent jobs for local people with disabilities or personal troubles. “We will still offer services in Federal Way, and anticipate being able to serve even more people after we move since we’ll be able to take on additional statements of work,” said Orion spokeswoman Kelly Maloney. “We haven’t yet decided whether we will retain our facility here in Federal Way.

Did you vote correctly in 2012? The election is over, but there will be another one. Some of you remain confused about whether you voted correctly. If you want to belong to one of the two major political parties, it would be helpful to know which one you are. It might depend on what color you like best: red, blue or purple. Over the past several years, fewer voters are identifying with either the Democratic (32 percent) or Republican (24 percent) parties. They are choosing none of the above, making themselves a more desired political commodity: an independent (38 percent). And since states and counties are now either red for Republican or blue for Democrat, you may already live in the wrong place and need to move. If you are purple, you are an independent who can live anywhere you want, and politicians will court you during every election. The rest of the time, nobody will talk to you. If your heroes are Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, Dwight Eisenhower, Mitt Romney, or anyone with money or who works on Wall Street, you are probably a Republican. You might also be confused, since only 25 percent of Republicans liked Romney in the primaries. Even though they couldn’t keep track of what his positions were, 75 percent didn’t think he was Republican enough. If you know that “real” Republicans aren’t supposed to say anything nice about George W. Bush, you probably should get a Republican bumper sticker. If your heroes are any of the Kennedys, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, or Abraham Lincoln, and you like poor people and minorities,

you’re probably a Democrat. But you might also be confused because Lincoln was a Republican who sounded like a Democrat, and Carter was more popular when he wasn’t president. Democrats complained about Obama because he wasn’t liberal enough. However, having a fun guy like Joe Biden around made up for that. But this may help. Republicans believe that government should be very small, have no staff and no regulations unless something goes wrong, like your food gets E. coli. Then you want someone in government to blame. Also, Republicans believe in individual freedom and do not want government intruding into their lives — except they are pretty curious about what goes on in your bedroom. They want the government to tell a pregnant woman she can’t have an abortion if she is too poor to afford one. That pregnant woman is presumably a Democratic woman. A Republican woman would not get pregnant because they believe in abstinence and even want it taught in schools. Adding to Republicans’ curious nature about the bedroom, they also want to tell homosexuals that they have to marry someone of the opposite sex, which seems to run counter to being a homosexual. Democrats believe that government should be very big and should solve all of our problems, even the ones we really should solve ourselves. When something goes wrong, they don’t blame government. They blame the lack of money. They also blame Republicans because Republicans have all the money. [ more ROEGNER, page 7 ] Bob Roegner

For most of us, understanding gender identity is like being a fish trying to understand water. We can use public restrooms without fear of verbal abuse, physical intimidation, or arrest. Our genders aren’t considered a mental disorder, and we don’t have to undergo extensive psychological evaluation in order to receive basic medical care. There’s a box for our gender on forms asking for it, and we don’t have to worry about being denied medical, financial or other services because someone doesn’t believe the gender marker on our ID matches our gender identity. We are what’s called “cisgender.” On Nov. 20, at least 38 names will be read at Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) events around the world. Compiled by transgendertdor.org, the names are updated as new information arrives. From Canada to India to Brazil, from Pennsylvania to Illinois to Washington, people who were victims of murder based on a bias against transgender people will be remembered. “Transgender” is an umbrella type term to include people who have gender non-conforming behavior or practices, such as cross-dressers, drag queens and transsexuals. Need help with a few definitions? (transequality.org): • Gender identity: An individual’s internal sense of being male, female, or something else. Not necessarily visible to others. • Gender expression: How a person represents one’s gender identity to others, often through behavior, dress, hairstyles, and other characteristics. • Cross-dresser: A term for people who dress in clothing traditionally or stereotypically worn by the other sex, but who often have no intent to live full-time as another gender. “Transvestite” is considered by many to be a derogatory word for cross-dressers. • Drag queen: Generally refers to men who dress as women (often celebrity women) for entertaining in bars or clubs. This term is also used in a derogatory manner to refer to any transgender woman. • Transsexual: A term for those whose gender identity is different from their assigned sex at birth. Some go through altering their body with hormones or surgery to help it match their gender identity. Someone who identifies as transgender falls outside of “male” or “female” boxes. Many people who identify as transgender, or “trans,” have strong feelings of being a gender other than the one of the body in which they live. A person might have male genitalia, XY chromosomes, and male hormones, while at the same time have a [ more JOHNSON, page 7 ]

Sikh resident was attacked by a sick minority My husband and I were extremely upset when we read last Friday’s edition of The Mirror. The front page article about a local man attacking the Sikh cab driver was a devastating thing to learn about over our morning coffee. We aren’t oblivious

to this kind of hatred, but for some reason it seems that it happens far away from us. We have been known to have a cab pick us up for a night out and to take one home. We like being safe on the road, and honestly, our discussions with our cab drivers are always a highlight of the night. We make it a point to ask our drivers questions about how their night is, and when it

seems appropriate, to ask what brought them here. I remember one man in particular, from India, who was working seven days a week to bring his family here for a better life. This morning, my husband and I talked about that man, hoped it wasn’t him in your article, and we were disgusted by the idea that someone could do that to a human being. It makes me sad that the

attacker carries so much hatred in his heart that he can abuse another person in such a brutal manner. It is never acceptable to hurt someone in any way, for any injury, real or imagined. It makes it even worse when that desire to hurt is so misplaced as to completely miss the targeted religion, country, and involvement of the person, as this attacker did. I hope that the gentleman who was the victim of this crime can see that he was [ more LETTERS, page 7 ]

[ ROEGNER, from page 6] While Democrats want government to control everything, they also believe in individual freedom, and although they are somewhat shy about government being in their bedroom, pretty much anyone else is welcome. Republicans don’t know what they do in there, but they are pretty sure God wouldn’t approve. Democrats believe women should be able to decide if they are going to have an abortion because Democrats have found that disagreeing with a woman’s right to choose, on any number of topics, has uncomfortable consequences. Republicans don’t like disagreeing with women, either. That’s why they want the government to tell a woman she can’t have an abortion. It cuts out a lot of unpleasant discussion and you get to blame the government. Democrats believe homosexuals should marry whoever they want. Democrats don’t think sexual abstinence makes much sense. They want condom dispensers in all the schools because they remember how well 18-year-old boys listen to adults. The new Republican hero, Paul Ryan, was Mitt Romney’s choice for vice president. They love his budget proposal, which cut just about everything from everybody. Ryan follows much of the thinking of Ayn Rand

brain that has developed more typically the way a female brain develops. This person could feel like she is a woman living in a man’s body. Although a small percentage (under 5 percent) of Americans identify as transgender, 41 percent of transgender youth have attempted suicide (National Center for Transgender Equality). Almost one in five transgender people have been refused medical care because of their status, and some report being assaulted, even violently, in a doctor’s office (msnbc.msn. com). To put this in perspective, note that between one

afraid of the NRA and all those Republicans who have guns. Republicans don’t want illegal immigrants in the country unless they do house work or yard work, cheap. They don’t want them to become citizens because they will probably vote for Democrats. Democrats don’t care who comes into the country, and they want them all registered to vote, because they will probably be poor and will vote for Democrats. The government will take care of them anyway. Republicans don’t want taxes and don’t want to pay for government — unless it is for defense, or if it helps us tell other countries how they should run their government. Then they don’t care what it costs. Democrats think taxes are for Republicans and don’t want to spend money on defense, although they like telling other countries what to do. They want to spend money on young people, poor people and old people. Pretty much anybody that might be a Democrat. Although they get confused about the difference between billions and trillions and how to account for money we don’t have. So, now do you know if you voted for the right person? Or do you need to move to another county or state?

A fire engine and two ambulances I have a question. It has probably been asked hundreds of times and you have answered it that many times, too. But I would still like to know. Last week, my neighbor needed to call 911. What showed up at the house? A fire engine and two ambulances. A couple of years ago, I was attacked by some bees. I passed out. My wife called 911. What showed up at the house? A fire engine and two ambulances. I have seen other instances like it in the neighborhood. This seems like overkill. Does it really take three vehicles to transport one person to the emergency room?

Pay tribute to our veterans Veterans Day is a time when we honor those who have bravely served this country and risked their lives for our freedom. We are paying tribute to not only our veterans, but to those who did not live to be thanked as veterans, and to those whose fate is still undetermined — those missing in action.

Nov. 11 became a legal federal holiday in 1938, but it wasn’t until the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War that Veterans Day became a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars. This American tradition continues to honor our past, and to commit to our future. It is a time where people acknowledge the debt we owe to the men and women who took up arms with dignity, commitment and courage to protect our families and friends. Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans who share a legacy of service that crosses generational lines and upholds values upon which our nation was founded — service to a cause greater than the self. Freedom is the most precious gift we have. In order to pay tribute to those willing to fight for our freedom, we must teach other generations this most noble of endeavors and continue our yearly gratitude and appreciation on Veterans Day. America has a sacred trust to care for those who defend her. From those who participated at Normandy on D-Day to the brave men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, it is important that on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, that we pause to remember those who have served us by serving in the military.

and her belief in the free market, individual freedom and limited government. Wait until Republicans find out that Ayn Rand was an atheist, favored abortion, didn’t take marriage all that seriously and believed in “rational self-interest.” She also was concerned about business and government getting too close to each other. Romney and Ryan want business to take over government. Democrats don’t trust business and think it needs to be controlled, but they aren’t interested in controlling government. According to Time magazine, 63 percent of Republicans still believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when we invaded. Of those, 64 percent believe President Obama was born in another country. Democrats never believed there were weapons of mass destruction because they didn’t like President Bush, and they don’t care where Obama was born because he gives a good speech and likes beer. They liked Bush better when he liked beer. Most Republicans like wine. Democrats are afraid of global warming. Republicans think global warming is a fad, kind of like the hula hoop.

New Hope church in Federal Way provides support for the homeless, along with screening for Reach Out shelters. COURTESY PHOTO Those who help the homeless know that it truly takes a village, and that volunteers are priceless. The effort takes an emotional toll on the Millers, especially when they’ve done all they can do — and can’t connect the rest of the dots for someone. It’s a never-ending mission to secure enough food and get people out of the cold. “It bothers me that we can’t have an all-yearround facility,” said Eileen Miller, referring to financial limitations of the charity. “It hurts. It makes you cry.”

Reach Out FW Reach Out homeless shelters opened for the winter season Nov. 1 in

Federal Way. Reach Out provides shelter, meals and case management services to homeless adults at Federal Way churches during the cold winter months. The charity is a program of Catholic Community Services of King County. On average, it costs Reach Out $22 to care for one person for one night. Within the past year, King County has seen a 6 percent growth in homelessness. For low-income families, any number of issues may precipitate becoming homeless – domestic violence, a health emergency, or a job loss.

Ayako Okada Woody of Federal Way, Washington passed away peacefully at home on October 25, 2012 after a nearly 5 year battle with lung cancer. She was born in Kure, Japan to Kozaemon and Takino Okada in 1932. Ayako Okada married William E. Woody in 1963. They met when William was with the U.S. Army and stationed in Japan and Ayako was working at a gift shop. Ayako then spent most of her future being a loving homemaker and mother. When she was younger, she enjoyed socializing with her friends, gardening and handcrafts such as crochet and making beautiful Japanese dolls. She has been a resident of Federal Way for 31 years.

A woman named Nancy once lived in the woods with her husband, Kevin, for 13 and a half years. Today, Nancy and Kevin have sobriety, an income and an apartment of their own. They turned their lives around after finding support through New Hope Christian Fellowship. “All we did was direct her to resources,” said Rick Miller, New Hope’s outreach director. “It was being the hub in the wheel that helped them get secured.” New Hope, 31411 6th Ave. S., serves as a severe weather shelter and a screening station for clients of Reach Out Federal Way. The church also provides hot meals, hot showers, dry clothing, laundry service and computer access at least once a week. When helping the homeless, Rick and Eileen Miller compare their efforts to directing traffic, leading people to a place where they can make better choices. However, it’s the cold and wet winters that make New Hope, and other shelters like it, a necessity in Federal Way. “Winter is devastating to some of these people,” Miller said, grateful to know that New Hope’s assistance is appreciated. “Many of the people we serve end up coming back and helping at the shelter.” One of those clients is Mark Hoyt, who has volunteered the past three years, ever since the shelter gave him a warm place to stay. Before, he slept in the woods with a tarp, sleeping bag and no tent. “They were helping me out. I’m going to give back,” said Hoyt, who is now the assistant facilities manager and site resource manager. “They accept you for who you are. They let you be who you are.” Some clients suffer from severe mental illness and end up at New Hope after their release from Western State Hospital. Miller recalled a man who spent a week at the shelter during the winter of 2010. The man believed he was Queen Victoria from Amsterdam. New Hope found a way to accommodate the man until the weather warmed a bit and he moved on.

home improvement, City reaches tentative home, auto, property, investment professionals ...AT YOUR SERVICE collective bargaining COSMETIC & FAMILY DENTISTRY agreement with police Get Beautiful Looking Smiles! The city announced that it had reached a “tentative” collective bargaining agreement with the Federal Way Police Department guild during the city council’s Nov. 6 meeting. City attorney Pat Richardson provided the details on the agreement, saying she hoped the two sides would be able to reach consensus regarding health care providers and a few other issues. The last full agreement was in 2007-08, she said. There have been two extensions, and the current contract expired Dec. 31, 2011. Richardson said the proposal before the council is a little unusual, in that the guild has not ratified it yet. “We will receive notice of that vote, I believe, on Thursday (November 8),” she said. “The timing is what the issue is here, in order to notify the health insurance providers.” Richardson outlined the main points of the tentative agreement: • A switch in health care providers would be effective

Jan. 1, 2013. • Anticipated savings from lower premiums due to that changeover would be put toward officer wages • The city will pay 100 percent of accrued sick leave to an officer’s family, in the event of death in the line of duty • The city will pay 25 percent of accrued sick leave upon retirement into the law enforcement retirement fund • Officers will be eligible to accrue 204 vacation hours annually for 20 years of service, which is consistent with other city employees • The city will waive a $15 monthly payment for dental insurance “As I said, we’re asking for conditional approval of the tentative agreement. The guild will notify the city on Nov. 8 if (the agreement) has been ratified. And, if so, we will get the notification done to the health insurance provider so we can make it effective for 2013,” Richardson said. The council unanimously approved the tentative agreement. The FWPD guild’s decision was unavailable at press time.

The Federal Way City Council held its first public hearing Nov. 6 on the proposed 2013-14 budget. No members of the public signed up to comment, but city finance director Tho Krause gave a presentation on the issues facing the city and its budget in the next few years. Krause started with a wide-angle view of the budget, reviewing overall revenues and expenses for the city as a whole. • The ongoing budget revenue is $52.6 million. The utility tax, sales tax and property tax account for 61 percent of total ongoing revenue, Krause said. • Ongoing expenditures total $48.2 million. About 53 percent of that budget is for public safety, which includes police, jail, prosecutors, the public defender and the courts, Krause said. • Krause noted that sales tax revenues are expected to increase by 1 percent for both 2013 and 2014, and increase by 2 percent for 2015 and 2016. Another issue that Krause touched on was closing the projected budget shortfalls for the 2013-14 budget. Federal Way had been able to close those operating gaps for the 2013-14 budget, thanks to city policy. In each year, what were originally projected operating gaps of approximately $1.1 million for 2013 and approximately $2.2 million for 2014, were able to be closed, according to Krause. It appears the city will be

facing the same problem in 2015-16, Krause said. “For a long-term projection, going into 2015, we have an operating gap of almost $3 million, and a deficit ending fund balance of $530,000. Going into 2016, our operating gap is $3.16 million, and leaves us with a deficit ending fund balance of $3.7 million,” she said. Another area that could see some changes in the near future is the property tax rate the city levies on citizens, Krause said. “Our city levy rate is $1.60 (per $1,000 of assessed value). The 2013 preliminary assessed evaluation is down eight percent, or $612 million from the 2012 assessed value of $7.68 billion,” Krause said. “As assessed valuation decreases, the levy rate increases. The proposed levy rate, the preliminary rate, is $1.43 per $1,000 of assessed value.” At the rate of $1.30 per $1,000, Krause said the average homeowner in Federal Way with a home valued at $250,000 currently pays approximately $325 a year. At the higher rate of $1.43 per $1,000, that total will increase to $328 per year. Councilmember Linda Kochmar asked where Federal Way ranked against the other cities in King County, in terms of revenue. Krause said Federal Way is 30th of the 38 cities in King County when it comes to revenue. The next public hearing on the budget is scheduled for the November 20 city council meeting.

Local eye doctor battles cataracts across SE Asia By GREG ALLMAIN gallmain@fedwaymirror.com

Dr. John Jarstad, a renowned ophthalmologist and CEO of Evergreen Eye Centers in Federal Way, will share his experiences from a recent medical mission with the United States Navy “Pacific Partnership” program. On that four-month mission, Jarstad performed approximately 268 cataract surgeries and dozens of other procedures for impoverished people in Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines. “It was really great. There’s a totally different culture there,” he said of the varied countries he visited with his wife, Patricia, a licensed heath care volunteer. When it came to visiting Vietnam, John Jarstad said there was a strange juxtaposition between this time and the last time he thought he might be visiting that country. “I was in the last group drafted for the Vietnam War, and the war ended before our group was supposed to go, so we didn’t have to serve,” he said. “That was something that was a little eerie, to go over there and actually help the people that I would have been interacting with in totally different circumstances (in the past).” Part of Jarstad’s mission was to perform surgeries, and also exchange information, he said. “We also taught the local

doctors the newest technology we brought along, and let them come onboard the ship, and operate on their own people under our guidance,” he said. “And then we had an information exchange, with the leading doctors in Indonesia, who came on ship and lectured. They also observed and showed us a few techniques (they’ve developed) on their end.” Jarstad said this trip was different because he was allowed to go onshore to work and teach in local hospitals. Previously, everything was done onboard the Navy ship that was part of the mission. “That was a first for the Navy, and I have to give credit to the commanding officers. … They kind of went out on a limb to let me do that because it’s not part of the protocol and had never been done before,” he said. “After the trip, they decided that’s something they would do in the future because it was huge success, according to them.” Cataracts were the most common malady, Jarstad said, because of the equatorial environment and increased exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. A curious social view that is prevalent throughout much of Southeast Asia seems to cause the cataracts, Jarstad noted. “One of the customs there is people don’t wear sunglasses or eye protection,” he said. “I asked them why they don’t wear sun-

glasses, because they know it’s bad to be exposed to ultraviolet rays. They said that people who wear sunglasses are thought to be shady or dishonest characters.” One patient that stood out among the hundreds he treated, Jarstad said, was a 9-year-old girl in Vietnam. “She received excessive radiation to a tumor above her eyebrow, and it really caused a lot of radiation damage, and a droopy eyelid, and her eyelashes were turned in and rubbing on her eye. She had several things wrong with her, including an ear that looked really terrible, like a scarred, cauliflower type ear,” he said. “And so we started in on her and repaired her eyelid and were able to find a dermatologist on the ship who could resurface her skin. At the end, she looked really great except for her ear. I was able to get one of the local Vietnamese doctors, who was an ear specialist, to fix that ear.” “It was really successful,” he added, “and the girl had a million dollar smile at the end, which really made it worthwhile.”

Check it out Dr. John Jarstad and his wife, Patricia, will share his experiences at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Federal Way, 841 S. 308th St. Admission to the event is free, and all are invited to attend.

Todd Beamer JROTC cadets connect with seniors and veterans through community service

By ANDY HOBBS editor@federalwaymirror.com

Retired veterans in Federal Way recently went back to boot camp. Their mission? Learning to use a cellphone. Their instructors? Teenagers. Last month, Todd Beamer High School Air Force JROTC cadets tutored residents at Village Green Retirement campus about the bells and whistles on today’s tech gadgets. Some residents, for example, wanted to learn how to send a text message to their grandchildren. Village Green has 187 residents who appreciate the intergenerational mingling with the cadets. The military connection also runs deep. “Almost all of the men who live here served in one capacity or another,” said Kimberly Vickers, executive director, who praised the partnership with the cadets: “They’re so forward thinking and worldly.”

In the coming months, the cadets will show the Village Green residents how to use laptop computers, desktop computers, and tablet devices like the iPad. Maj. Barry Jones, senior aerospace science instructor at Todd Beamer, keeps his cadets active in the community. The cadets participate in color guard ceremonies, drill competitions and food drives. They read to elementary school students and volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. One visible project includes the roundabout on the road leading into Todd Beamer High School. Last year, the cadets contributed 4,200 hours of service, Jones said. This year, the program has 145 students who are learning to create and achieve goals. Jones has led the program since its inception eight years ago. “It’s cool to feel like there’s somebody out there who appreciates what we do,” he said. JROTC cadets from Todd Beamer and Federal Way high schools will participate in the annual Honoring Our Own event, which begins at noon Nov. 12 at Todd Beamer High School.

A life of service

Jerry DeLaFontaine, 88, enjoys helping others. As a 20-year volunteer with Multi-Service Center’s Federal Way Food Bank, and the Community Caregiving Network, DeLaFontaine has met nice people along the way and has had fun making an impact in his community. “It’s a duty, really, to do something for someone else,” he said. “It’s the best way to spend your hours, to help others who need help.” DeLaFontaine’s service to others started in spring 1943, when he left college to enlist in the United States Air Force. As a pilot of cargo planes, DeLaFontaine flew small, single-engine planes and larger C-47s throughout the Philippines and New Guinea. He had a crew of 12 guys, mostly former crop-duster pilots. “They were some of the best pilots in the world,” he said. Together, they shuttled everything from shovels to jeeps, and hospital equipment to mail, all to reinforce troops doing battle. As a pilot, there were many places he had to learn to land a plane in tight spaces, like on a neighborhood street in between houses. “There was no room for mistakes,” he said. He remembers a couple of times when his plane crashed — once when the wings came off and the plane just fell apart. “Luckily, it didn’t burn. I’m a lucky guy,” he said. “God takes good care of me.” DeLaFontaine still carries important items to people in need, his mission now less risky, but still critical. He volunteers as a member of the food bank’s van-driving crew, picking up donated food from area grocery stores to bring back to families in need. “I’m surprised that so many people need help, more help than they can get really,” he said. When he’s not helping others, DeLaFontaine and his wife Janice — they’ve been married for 65 years — do a bit of traveling, or spend time with their growing family of three children, eight grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

Life may not be as dramatic as flying cargo in and out of tight spots during wartime, but helping others has offered Jerry DeLaFontaine a lifetime of joy.

Story for Federal Way veterans

By ANDY HOBBS editor@federalwaymirror.com

As a senior in high school, Grandpa got his first vehicle: A green U.S. Army Jeep. He graduated early and went to boot camp, then to the European battlefields in World War II. For decades after the war, Grandpa discussed few details, at least with his family. We heard stories here and there, mostly about post-war shenanigans. A favorite story: He would sell

Les Schwab Tire Center

American cigarettes to French civilians, and an army buddy would confiscate the cigarettes about a block away, then sell the same smokes all over again. When I was a kid, he showed me a Nazi flag — a “souvenir” from the war. He fished it out of the attic one day. The flag had thinned with age, but its evil was still ripe. I once asked about a rifle that hangs above his fireplace to this day: “Where did you get

that rifle, Grandpa?” “I got it during the war.” “Who gave it to you?” “A German soldier.” “Why did he give it to you?” “He didn’t need it anymore.” Grandpa is more of the quiet, stoic type. He loves his family and guards his privacy. But when he talks, people listen. One Christmas Eve in the Midwest, the family gathered around the plastic evergreen tree to watch twinkling bulbs and sip coffee. Winter winds whipped the house that sheltered us

from a snow storm. Out of the blue, Grandpa looked at me and said: “60 years ago tonight, I was riding in a tank across the Ardennes forest.” He then described the bitter cold and uncertainty he faced during the Battle of the Bulge, among World War II’s bloodiest and decisive battles. At the time, his story caught me off-guard. Like other World War II veterans, Grandpa is more open about his experiences these days, eager to enrich public knowledge before it’s too late. I have since heard about a battle in which

almost 90 percent of his platoon was killed. Desperate and outnumbered, Grandpa and the remaining Americans charged the Germans with their bayonets. This earned him a Bronze Star. After years in storage, the medal now hangs on a wall at his home. At 84, Grandpa is long removed from young adulthood. But he can replay every vivid minute of certain battles like a movie on a screen, he said. Those scenes are tattooed on his mind, for better or worse. I look at photo albums from his deployment,

and I see more than just American soldiers. I see boys who became men overnight. I see students who were posing for their final photo. I see survivors who made it home to start families and careers. I see representatives of a generation that cemented America’s moxie, pride and prosperity. I see the last generation of Americans who understand a real threat to our way of life — and know what it means to truly fight for freedom. Grandpa, you are my hero. I admire your courage more than you’ll ever know. Anytime you want to talk, I am ready to listen and learn. Mirror editor Andy Hobbs: editor@ federalwaymirror.com.

Commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) has been linked to military service. U.S. military veterans are more likely to develop the debilitating disease than those with no military service, according to the ALS Association. ALS causes the breakdown of nerves that control muscle movement in the body. There is no known cause for the disease, which leaves patients unable to walk, get out of bed or care for themselves. Most ALS victims die from respiratory failure. In 2008, the Department of Veterans Affairs declared ALS as a service-connected disease. As a result, military veterans who are diagnosed with ALS are eligible for health care and disability benefits. The specific connection between ALS and military service, however, remains a mystery. Some research suggests that exposure to certain toxins and environmental factors may play a role. Recent studies suggest that Gulf War veterans are more likely to develop neurological disorders similar to ALS. According to a study by Harvard University, men with any history of military service face a 60 percent greater risk of ALS than those who did not serve. “This increase appeared to be largely independent of the branch of service and the time

Football: Eagles squeak by Issaquah in opener Federal Way advances into Class 4A state tournament after 24-14 win, home rematch with Rogers awaits By CASEY OLSON sports@fedwaymirror.com

Things weren’t as easy as a lot of people thought for the second-ranked Federal Way High School football team. Issaquah, the fifth seed from the KingCo League, gave a depleted Federal Way all they could handle Friday night before the Eagles pulled away in the second half for a 24-14 victory at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. Federal Way, playing without starters Chico McClatcher, Rod Jones and Mike Tate, turned the ball over an amazing six times during the game. Something that hasn’t happened to the 10-0 Eagles all season. Federal Way entered the game with a +16 turnover ratio. “That was really unlike us,” said longtime head coach John Meagher. “Obviously, we came out a little tight, which was strange. We didn’t practice like that all week and didn’t warm up like that.” But the Eagles were able to ride senior running back Zeek McNeal all game long. McNeal, Federal Way’s leading rusher all season, finished with a careerbest 293 yards, including three runs of over 50 yards and a 65-yard touchdown burst. “All I could think about is that I didn’t want this to be our last game,” McNeal said. “It was a gut check.” Next up for the Eagles will be a rematch with the Rogers Rams, an old South Puget Sound League South Division foe, at 7 p.m. Friday night at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. Federal Way beat up the Rams in their season opener, 41-14. A berth into the state quarterfinals will be on the line. Rogers (6-4) beat Monroe, the second seed from the Wesco Conference, 14-7 Friday night in Monroe. But Friday night, the Eagles got a big dose of reality on Issaquah’s first play [ more EAGLES page 23 ]

When: 7 p.m. tonight, Nov. 9 Where: Federal Way Memorial Stadium What’s at stake: A berth into the quarterfinal round of the 16-team Class 4A State Football Playoffs. The winner of the Federal Way-Rogers game will play the winner of a game between Camas and Arlington. Camas (10-0) won the Greater St. Helen’s League and is currently the third-ranked team in the state behind Skyline (10-0) and Federal Way (10-0). Arlington (5-5) upset unbeaten Kentwood last week in the preliminary round of the state playoffs. The winner of the Camas/Arlington game will host Federal Way or Rogers on Nov. 16 or 17.

Cross country: Beamer girls run at state meet, Jex finishes up in 32nd By CASEY OLSON sports@fedwaymirror.com

In their first-ever appearance at the Class 4A State Cross Country Championships, the Beamer girls finished up in 15th place overall. The Titans ended up with 323 team points and finished above Auburn Riverside in the team standings. Beamer was led by Ashley Mason, who finished up in 64th place overall in a time of 19:43.0 over the 5-kilometer course at the Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco Saturday after-

noon. Camas High School literally ran away with the Class 4A team championship with Austin Jex 50 points, well above secondplace Tahoma, who finished with 103 points. Sophomore Alexa Efraimson won the individual race in 17:34.2. Last year’s champion, Mount Rainier’s Jordan McPhee, was second in 18:10.9.

Other Beamer finishers Saturday were sophomore Lily Do in 87th place (20:09.2), freshman Angela Mendoza in 93rd (20:12.0), junior Alyssa Donawa in 109th (20:35.9), sophomore Paige Hallstrom in 120th (21:06.0), freshman Alyssa Odom in 125th (21:13.6) and freshman Jessa Barth in 126th (21:13.9). The Titans qualified by finishing in the eighth and final position at the West Central/Southwest District Meet. The Beamer boys duo of Austin [ more x-country page 24 ]

Casey Olson

at a suburban auto repair shop. Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees are too busy making millions doing commercials for Gatorade, Dodge and Nyquil, among others. Even fellow rookie starters like Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck are pretty much set for life with their contracts and endorsement deals. As a third-round draft pick, Wilson signed a four-year, $2.99 million deal with the Seahawks after he was drafted in April. The contract averages $747,500 a season, which would be a life-changer for you and I, but is change-inthe-couch type stuff to other NFL quarterbacks. It’s a contract that is the “cheapest” of any starting quarterback in the NFL. The only quarterback even close is Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton, who makes $1.3 million a season after being a second-round pick last year. And it’s not because these quarterbacks aren’t good guys. I’m sure they would love meeting and greeting with their fans. It’s because the quarterback of an NFL team is always the coolest dude in the room. Always. Because of that, if they allowed it, they would be pulled in a million different directions. Guys like Brady could sign autographs and pose for pictures 24/7/365 and not please everybody. So, what I’m saying, is enjoy Wilson’s [ more sidelines page 24 ]

SIDELINES

It definitely doesn’t suck to be Russell Wilson. The 23-year-old is only one of 32 starting NFL quarterbacks in the world and winning games in impressive fashion for the 5-4 Seattle Seahawks. Wilson’s popularity bus made a stop in Federal Way Monday evening. The quarterback was in town to sign autographs and pose for photos at Walt’s Auto Care Center. Wilson’s appearance drew a line around the block of Seahawks’ fans, both young and old, willing to wait in the cold and windy Pacific Northwest weather. Wilson’s appearance in Federal Way came just a day after he led the Seahawks to a dominating 30-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings at CenturyLink Field. Wilson completed 16 of 24 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns and kept numerous plays alive with his scrambling ability. Even more importantly, Wilson didn’t turn the ball over. “It’s amazing. It really is,” Seattle Seahawk guard John Moffitt said. “He’s playing great ball. He’s not a regular rookie. He wants to learn. He wants to grow and we keep seeing it, week-in and week-out.” The growth of Wilson will be great for the Seahawks on the field, but will be bad for Seattle fans hoping to get up-close and personal with the quarterback. No offense to Walt’s, but I’m pretty sure that Wilson is the only NFL starting quarterback who is making appearances

What to expect: In terms of the Federal Way school district swimmers and divers, Kenna Ramey and Shelby Church have the best chance at coming home with some hardware. Both won South Puget Sound League and West Central District individual titles in their previous two meets. Ramey, a Federal Way High School junior, is the only swimmer in the state to swim the 50-yard freestyle in under 24 seconds this season. The defending 50 free state champion is the leading qualifier in 23.98 and won last year’s Class 4A title in a blazing 23.62. Wenatchee junior Hannah Bruggman (24.13) might be Ramey’s biggest competition in her hopes of a repeat in the 50 free. Ramey is also the second-leading qualifier in the 100 butterfly and

Federal Way senior Kenna Ramey is hoping to repeat as the Class 4A state champion in the 50-yard freestyle. casey olson, The Mirror should battle with Cascade senior Kalena Laurent for the state title in that event. Laurent is the only swimmer to swim under 57 seconds this season (56.64), but Ramey isn’t far behind, with a qualifying time of 57.03. The third-best qualifier, Newport’s Lorea Gwo, is nearly a second behind Ramey. Church, a Thomas Jefferson senior, is the fifth-leading qualifier in the 1-meter diving event with 348.90 points. But a state championship would be quite an upset for any diver not named Caitlin Chambers. The Garfield senior is a big-time favorite in the event and might challenge the all-time state record in diving. Chambers qualified with 475.55 points and the all-time mark is 473.30, set in 2005 by Issaquah’s Jesse Snowden. Church’s twin sister, Monica, is the seventh qualifier in diving with 343.60 points and Federal Way sophomore Tia Thomas has the ninth-best prelim score (338.0).

Other district 4A state meet qualifiers are Beamer’s Estelle Kim in the 100 butterfly (23rd, 1:03.93), Federal Way’s Eva Barth in the 50 free (24th, 25.86) and 100 free (22nd, 56.9) and the Federal Way 200 free relay and 400 free relay teams. Decatur will be represented by juniors Anna Paradee and Lanie Vuong in the Class 3A meet. Paradee is the 12th-best qualifier in the 1-meter diving with a score of 309.35 and Vuong will swim the 100 butterfly after qualifying 25th in 1:03.75. In terms of team titles, the favorites entering the meet are Richland in 4A and Mercer Island in 3A. Richland could become the first eastside school to win a large-school classification state championship. The Bombers have several of the top qualifying times in numerous events. Mercer Island is ultratalented and attempting to capture its fifth consecutive team title, which has never been done in 3A.

Soccer: Camas downs Eagles at district tournament, 2-1 By CASEY OLSON sports@fedwaymirror.com

The Federal Way Eagles’ soccer season ended Saturday afternoon in Vancouver. The Camas Papermakers downed the Eagles in a loser-out, winner-to-state contest at McKenzie Stadium, 2-1. Camas’ Teylen Sheesley and Mika Norrish scored goals for the team that finished second in the Greater St. Helen’s League behind Union. The Papermakers will take on Moses Lake in the opening round of the state tournament. The Eagles (9-3-6) finished in third place in the South Puget Sound League South Division and beat Kentwood, the third-place

team from the SPSL North, in a crossover game last week. Federal Way will bring back plenty of talent next season, led by Gabriela Pelogi. The sophomore led the Eagles with 17 goals and six assists during the season. Also returning will be their second- and third-leading scorers in junior Sydney Slagg (six goals, four assists) and freshman Audrey Shin (four goals, five assists). But Federal Way will lose ultra-talented goalkeeper Sarah Shimer, along with fellow seniors Bianca Arizpe (five goals), Sierra Howard, Madison Edminston, Sydney Glaser and Ramey Hector. Shimer will be the biggest loss. She had seven shutouts on the season and will play in the fall at the University of Washington.

from scrimmage. Issaquah tailback, Jack Gellatly, bolted through the middle of the Federal Way defense and raced 80 yards for a touchdown to give the visiting Eagles a quick 7-0 lead just 15 seconds into the game. “That kid is a great running back,” Meagher said about Gelatly, who led the KingCo in rushing with over 1,500 yards. “He’s a legit running back.” Following the Gelatly 80yard TD scamper, the Eagles finally got on the scoreboard with 5:02 remaining in the first half on the strangest play of the night. Junior fullback Eric Ah Fua took a handoff up the middle, but fumbled the ball. It was then picked up by senior offensive lineman Andy Ah Fua, who rumbled 12 yards into the endzone, carrying three Issaquah players over the goal line. But Issaquah came right back on the next drive and scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 9-yard pass to Reed Peterson to take a 14-7 lead with 2:26 remaining in the half. After Federal Way brought the kickoff back to the 35 yard line, McNeal tallied his only touchdown of the night on a 65-yard run around the right side of the defense to tie the game back up at 14-14 late in the half. “I was ready for the load with Rod and Chico out,” McNeal said. “But we had a lot of guys step up for us tonight.” The second half is when the normally stout Federal Way defense stepped up. In the final two quarters, the Eagles’ allowed Issaquah to run only 12 plays from scrimmage. Federal Way forced four Issaquah three-and-outs, including an interception from senior defensive back Aaron Persinger. “I was really proud of our

Senior J.J. McNeal tallied his first rushing touchdown of the year on a 5-yard run through the middle of the Issaquah defense to put Federal Way up 21-14 with 5:51 remaining in the third quarter. The Eagles got some insurance with 7:36 remaining in the fourth quarter on a big 27-yard field goal by senior Koby Craig. But Issaquah’s Derek Chapman took the ensuing kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown. However, a holding call on the return negated the touchdown

and brought the ball back all the way to the Federal Way 19-yard line. The Eagle defense then held Issaquah to another three-andout and forced a punt. Federal Way’s offense then used 13-straight rushing plays to run the final six minutes of the game off the clock. Meagher will have McClatcher, Jones and Tate back next week against Rogers, he said. McClatcher has been battling an illness and also missed the Eagles’ regular-season ending win over Curtis. Jones and Tate didn’t play against Issaquah for disciplinary reasons. “I’m very proud of how our kids hung in there tonight,” Meagher said. “Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong early. We just kind of weathered the storm.”

How cool is it to play yourself in a video game? Ask Rowe, Henderson By CASEY OLSON sports@fedwaymirror.com

Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson signs an autograph during an appearance at Walt’s Auto Repair Center on Monday night. Wilson signed over 300 autographs. casey olson, The Mirror

Here is a screen shot of Decatur High School graduate Benson Henderson (right) fighting Frankie Edgar on the video game, UFC Undisputed 3. It’s Henderson first video game appearance. courtesy photo video game franchise. The game marks the first time Henderson has been a video game character. It’s just a sign of the times. Video games today are a lot different than they were during my youth, pumping quarters into Defender, Galaga, Dig Dug and Asteroids, among others. It wasn’t until Tecmo Bowl came out for the old Nintendo when you could actually play as your favorite NFL football player. Remember trying to get an extrapoint off against the New York Giants and Lawrence Taylor, or trying to tackle Bo Jackson? Impossible. Athletes are now using video games to improve physical and mental skills. This is because the simulation and graphics on today’s games are lifelike. The ultimate video game franchise, Madden NFL, has been a huge hit for years with pro athletes, especially football players. Wired Magazine calls it the “Madden Effect,” which means the gameplay is so realistic that players are taking what they learn on the video game and incorporating it on the actual field. Maybe the best use of Madden as a training tool comes from Chuck Kyle, who is a high school football coach in Ohio. Kyle programs his team’s playbook into the game for his players to use as a study tool. Sounds like a coach that has today’s athlete

in mind. Kyle, who has won 10 state championships, has programmed his playbook into Madden and uses it to teach players their assignments. So have coaches at Colorado State, Penn State and the University of Missouri, among others. Video game simulations have become huge in the world of auto racing, and are a necessity for most of the top drivers. Nascar driver Joey Logano has admitted that he gets ready for his races by going to iRacing.com, a simulation site. A lot of other drivers are also doing the same thing. It helps because Nascar has banned drivers from test-driving their cars on the real tracks. “The graphics are really close to the real thing,” Logano told the New York Times. “You get to experience any turn or bump. You make a few laps on the screen and you think, ‘Oh, I remember this turn.’ And you already have it figured out when you’re really on the track.” Dale Earnhardt Jr. recently sat out two races after suffering a concussion. During his absence, Earnhardt stayed sharp by playing video games. So, for now, you can “be cool” and play your kids’ Xbox 360 as two Federal Way athletes, Kelyn Rowe and Benson Henderson. That’s about as close to being a professional athlete as you are going to get.

[ sidelines from page 22] accessibility while you can. It’s not going to last long. And it will have nothing to do with the type of person Wilson is. By all accounts, Wilson is a great guy off the field. I witnessed that firsthand Monday night when he graciously signed an autograph for everybody in line, despite having a prior charity engagement scheduled. Wilson was only scheduled to be at Walt’s for an hour, but stayed well past his allotted time. It’s obvious that Wilson has that “it” factor you are

looking for in a quarterback and he’s only going to get better. “He just continues to grow every single week,” said Golden Tate, who has five touchdown catches this season, including two during the win over Minnesota. “It’s interesting seeing the growing pains, seeing the highs and lows. I’m enjoying watching him. He’s a guy who wants to be the best and he’s developing into a leader on our team. I’m excited to be able to play with him.” It doesn’t suck to be Russell Wilson.

It’s got to be pretty cool to be a professional athlete. Getting paid a lot of money to play a game has got to be the best job in the world. But, nowadays, you aren’t really a bonafide sports star until you can actually grab a joystick and play yourself in a video game. More so than having a 10-member posse or owning more than three cars, athletes want to be able to play themselves on their XBox 360. It’s just a fact of life. In case you didn’t know, pro athletes are vain and competitive — a combination perfect for starring in a video game. Federal Way High School graduate Kelyn Rowe recently received the honor of being able to control himself in a video game. Rowe is now featured on FIFA 13. The soccer game launched late last month and sold a record 4.5 million copies in just five days around the world. Rowe is finishing his rookie season for the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer (MLS). The third-overall pick in the MLS SuperDraft, Rowe is having an impressive year. He leads the team with five assists and is third with three goals. The Revolution ended their season last week on the road against Thomas Jefferson High School grad Lamar Neagle and the Montreal Impact. Neagle has been featured in the past three FIFA video games, so he is an old pro at seeing his likeness on the TV screen. Rowe was recently featured on the Revolution’s official website playing himself on the video game. “I mean it was pretty cool,” Rowe said. “Just to see myself play and all that.” But, being a professional athlete, Rowe was a little disappointed with his “look” on the game. “The hair is a little long, just a little long,” he said with a laugh. “But that’s definitely my fault. I’m going to cut it before they do the photos next year.” Rowe and Neagle aren’t the only Federal Way natives featured in a sports video game this year. Decatur grad and current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Benson Henderson plays a big role in the UFC Undisputed

PUBLIC NOTICE - 2013 SOLID WASTE RATE INCREASES In accordance with RCW 35.21.157, the City of Federal Way provides this notice of upcoming solid

waste rate increases for Waste Management of Washington customers located in Federal Way. The City of Federal Way manages a contract with Waste Management of Washington that regulates solid waste and recycling collection services and pricing. This contract allows annual rate adjustments tied to Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, as well as periodic adjustments based on King County’s disposal fees. In 2013, both CPI and disposal fees will increase. Individual refuse collection fees generally consist of two components: ‘Disposal’ + ‘Service’ = Current Rate. ‘Disposal’ is based on average container weights, factoring in disposal fees set by King County. The King County Council authorized increased disposal fees effective January 1, 2013. Disposal fees will increase from $109.00 per ton to $120.17 per ton, plus applicable taxes and surcharges. This is a fee increase of approximately 10.2%, which applies only to the ‘Disposal’ component of rates, and covers transfer of solid waste delivered to King County facilities and disposal at the County landfill. For more information, contact King County Solid Wa s t e D i v i s i o n a t 2 0 6 . 2 9 6 . 4 4 6 6 , o r v i s i t http://your.kingcounty.gov/solidwaste/index.asp. The ‘Service’ rate component is Waste Management’s compensation and it adjusts annually by a CPI factor every March 1. This annual CPI adjustment follows an index published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This CPI factor increases the ‘Service’ components of residential and commercial rates by approximately 2.7%, effective March 1, 2013. A temporary 0.3% increase in the State Business & Occupation Tax is also factored into these rates. This may be subject to a future sunset date. Customers may reduce the impact of fee increases through waste reduction and recycling options. For example, Residential customers can: Increase recycling cart size (at no added cost) and recycle more, and/or Start or increase yard debris/food scrap recycling (a lower cost option than garbage), and then Reduce garbage container size to reduce combined fees. Upon request, City Public Works staff will assist customers with options that can offset these 2013 rate increases. Commercial customers are encouraged to request limited no-cost recycling service (up to two 96-gallon carts per individual business). Multi-family customer rates include complete recycling services at no added cost. Increasing recycling and downsizing garbage service can reduce costs. To make changes to service levels, contact Waste Management of Washington at (253) 833-3333, or (800) 592-9995 Over 200 individual rates are calculated through this process. A complete set of 2013 rates is available for inspection at the City of Federal Way, Dept. of Public Works, 33325 8th Avenue South, Federal Way, WA 98003. For more information, please call the Public Works Department at (253) 835-2770 or (253) 835-2771. Published in the Federal Way Mirror 11/09/2012 and 11/16/2012 FWM 1952
