Heuschel to co-chair Inslee transition team By TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

Mary Alice Heuschel

Renton School Superintendent Mary Alice Heuschel has been named one of three co-chairs for Gov.-elect Jay Inslee’s transition team. The leadership team also includes Microsoft Vice President Brad Smith and Washington State University

President Elson Floyd. “First it’s an amazing honor to earn his confidence and trust to do this,” said Heuschel of Inslee, after a press conference Wednesday in Seattle. She called the appointment a phenomenal opportunity. Many people think the superintendent’s work is local, but Heuschel says

her responsibilities reach beyond the district and this opportunity presents a platform to do more. As one of the three co-chairs on Inslee’s transition team, Heuschel will be responsible for staffing matters first, then policy development and finally she’ll serve as a consultant throughout Inslee’s term.

Her new role will affect her evenings and weekend schedule, Heuschel said. “It’s impact, but it’s the right work,” she said. As with anything she takes on, Heuschel consulted her school board members first about the opportunity. [ more Heuschel page 9 ]

600 families in need of Thanksgiving turkeys By TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

Beverly Storey, left, of the Salvation Army Renton Rotary Food Bank and volunteer Jamie McIntyre hold up one of only a few turkeys that have been donated to the center as of Wednesday. The Salvation Army needs about 600 turkeys before Monday to fill its Thanksgiving baskets. tracey compton, Renton Reporter

This time last year the warehouse shelves of the Salvation Army Renton Rotary Food Bank were practically full. Now with only days to go before it hands out Thanksgiving meals, the food bank has collected just two turkeys. It has a list of about 600 families who are in need of a Thanksgiving dinner. “We’ve had quite the increase (in families) without the same amount of donations,” said Beverly Storey, social services director for the Salvation Army. “This time last year we had half of all the donations we

needed.” The Salvation Army started collecting food for its Thanksgiving baskets on Thursday and plans to continue through Sunday at the downtown Renton Fred Meyer, 365 Renton Center Way S.W. The Salvation Army will be collecting bagged items that Fred Meyer customers can purchase and then donate. Frozen turkeys are needed at either the Fred Meyer donation site or the Salvation Army Renton Rotary Food Bank between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., through Friday. The food bank is at [ more Turkeys page 19 ]

The House seat opened when Steve Bergquist Bob Hasegawa of Seattle opted to run for the 11th District Senate seat held by Sen. Margarita Prentice, who retired.

A Seattle man has been charged with first-degree assault, accused by prosecutors of pushing his girlfriend onto Martin Luther King Jr. Way Oct. 29, where she was hit by an SUV. The arraignment for 44-year-old Fredrick Londale Colvin is at 8:30 a.m. Nov. 20 at the King County Courthouse in downtown Seattle. He’s being held in the county jail in downtown Seattle on $1 million bail. Colvin was charged with first-degree assault – domestic violence and reckless endangerment. Prosecutors wrote in charging documents that the high bail is appropriate because Colvin is a flight risk and a danger to the victim. The victim, a 44-year-old Seattle woman, was critically injured when she was hit by an SUV. She was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle; she has asked that the hospital not release her condition. Colvin fled the scene while passersby helped the victim, according to charging documents. He was arrested Nov. 2 The speed limit is 50 mph where the incident occurred on Martin Luther King Jr Way (also State Route 900) just east of South 129th Street. There was a light rain and it was dark at about 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29, as Colvin and his girlfriend walked on the eastbound lane of the highway, arguing. Charging documents describe how a witness saw Colvin use two hands to push the victim onto SR 900, where she was hit and run over by a Toyota 4Runner. The witness, who had narrowly missed the woman himself, told investigators that when he ran back to help the woman, he saw Colvin collecting her belongings. Colvin then fled and the witness gathered up the possessions. Investigators interviewed the victim at Harborview on Oct. 31, who called Colvin her boyfriend. She gave them information about his background. She told them she was pregnant and Colvin was the father. Investigators learned that Colvin would often stay at a house in Skyway not far from where the incident occurred. A state patrol detective spotted him near the house on Nov. 2, but Colvin was able to get a ride and left, according to charging documents. The car was followed to south Seattle, where Colvin was arrested. He told investigators that he was playing when he pretended to push the victim, who reacted by falling back into the highway. He told investigators he tried to catch her. According to charging documents, Colvin has criminal history in Arkansas.

Friends, family rally around Marty Leverton Renton police officer fighting a rare form of throat cancer BY DEAN A. RADFORD dradford@rentonreporter.com

Marty Leverton figured the sore throat last December was a cold, but it wouldn’t go away. He went to an urgent-care facility, where he was given something to numb the pain. Still, there was no relief. His primary-care doctor told him he had a swelling in his neck; she sent him to an ear, nose and throat specialist – an otolaryngologist. The doctor used a scope to examine Leverton’s throat, telling the Renton Police A helping hand motor officer that yes, something is goA fundraiser is planned for Saturday, ing on, said Jennifer Nov. 17, to help Renton Police Officer Leverton, Leverton’s Marty Leverton in his fight against throat wife. cancer.

According to Leverton, the UW offered two options: watch for six months to see whether the tumor grew or have surgery, which Jennifer described as radical and invasive. The surgical options could risk Leverton’s voice box – and his voice. Marty Leverton met a surgeon from Boston, who was

Probate is the legal process that determines how a deceased person’s assets will be distributed. The Superior Court has jurisdiction to approve the decedent’s Will, and to appoint the person who has the responsibility to administer the estate. In the process, the rights of the estate’s beneficiaries, as well as the decedent’s creditors and taxing authorities are protected. The financial aspects of the decedent’s life are “wrapped up” and the assets are distributed in accordance with the decedent’s wishes.

also a specialist in such surgical treatments. Using his phone, Leverton showed the surgeon the CT scan of the tumor. Jennifer said the Boston surgeon offered a surgical option that was less invasive, which made more sense, Jennifer said. In making their decision the Levertons had to balance Marty’s quality of life, his pain and leaving the tumor in place for too long, Jennifer said. “We are doing everything we can to save Marty’s voice,” she said. On Oct. 11, the Boston surgeon, Dr. Steven M. Zeitels, performed the surgery endoscopically through Leverton’s mouth, which allowed him to remove as much or more of the tumor as other surgeries without jeopardizing the voice box, Jennifer said. The surgery “went well,” Jennifer said. Now, the Levertons are waiting again. But they’ve bought more time to save Marty’s voice. In mid-January Leverton will return to Boston so that the surgeon can get a baseline for the size of the tumor. The 12-week wait is necessary so that scar tissue can dissolve and the surgeon can get an accurate measurement of the tumor. If “everything is fine” after that visit, Leverton will undergo CT scans at the UW so that his doctors can monitor the size of the tumor, Jennifer said. If the tumor grows, he could face surgery through his neck to remove it. The Boston surgeon doesn’t accept insurance, so the Levertons must pay for the entire cost of the surgery. There are the trips to Boston and all the other costs related to such medical care. Already thousands of dollars have been raised to help defray Leverton’s medical bills. The goal is to raise about $50,000. There is a Cops with Cancer Dinner and Auction Saturday, Nov. 17, that will benefit the Cops with Cancer, which has provided financial support for the Levertons. “Without these fundraisers we wouldn’t be able to afford another surgery,” she said. The Levertons, who live in Covington, married in October 2000, but they’ve been together for 18 years. They have two children, Amy, 5, and Lane 4. “He is the funniest person I have ever met,” Jennifer says of her husband Marty.

Woman dies when car rams building

An 80-year-old woman crashed her car into a Farmers Insurance building while trying to park Wednesday, killing a woman inside. No decision has been made as to whether charges will be filed against the driver. adam mcfadden, Renton Reporter

Gas prices continue to fall Average retail gasoline prices in Seattle have fallen 7.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.58 a gallon early this week. This compares with the national average that has fallen 3.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.46 a

gallon, according to gasoline price website SeattleGasPrices.com. Including the change in gas prices in Seattle during the past week, prices yesterday were 16.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 52.6 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 32.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.1 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average has again decreased in the last week, but the decreases are beginning to slow down,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

A woman inside the Farmers Insurance office at Logan Avenue and Tobin Avenue near Renton Memorial Stadium was killed Wednesday morning when a car drove into the building. Information about the woman was not immediately available by the Renton Reporter’s print deadline Wednesday. The driver of the car, an 80-year-old woman, was not seriously injured. The woman turned from Airport Way onto Logan Avenue and was parking to patronize a nearby business.

The accident was reported at about 10:50 a.m. Wednesday. The driver had to be removed from the car, which had trapped the woman inside the building. CPR was performed at the scene. There was a large police presence directing traffic. Logan Avenue was closed and Metro Transit was alerted to the road closures in the area. No decision will be made as to whether charges will be filed until the investigation is complete, according to Terri Vickers, RentonPolice Department spokeswoman.

State warns of drowsy driving Drowsy driving, or sleepiness, has been identified as a factor in a growing number of automobile crashes, according to a Washington State Patrol press release. As with the dangers of speeding, drinking and driving, and not wearing seatbelts, drowsy driving is just as devastating and dangerous, according to the state patrol. Drowsy driving has serious consequences on our highways. It impairs driver’s reaction time, judgment, vision, awareness of surroundings and decision making. Warnings signs include: trouble keeping eyes open and head up, difficulty focusing, yawning repeatedly, and missing exits or traffic signs. “Falling asleep at the wheel is as preventable as collisions that are caused by speeding and drinking and driving,” said Chief John Batiste, Washington State Patrol. “People need to take the necessary precautions to prevent sleepiness as a needless

cause of deaths and injuries.” In 2010, 16 motorists were killed and 60 were seriously injured in Washington State because of drowsy driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, each year at least 1,550 deaths and 71,000 injuries are a result of drowsy driving. “Falling asleep Drowsy drivat the wheel is as ing is such an preventable as important issue collisions that are it prompted caused by speeding Washington and drinking and State Governor driving.” Washington Chris GreState Patrol Chief John goire to sign a Batiste proclamation. In it, she urges all Washington State citizens to join her in observing national Drowsy Driving Prevention Week (DDPW) Nov. 12-18. The DDPW campaign was developed to educate young drivers, their

parents and others about drowsy driving and its prevention. The AAA Foundation estimates that about one in six deadly crashes nationwide involves a drowsy driver. In fact, The National Sleep Foundation’s 2011 poll found that about one in ten 16-45 year old drivers report driving drowsy once or twice a week. The Washington State Patrol wants to remind drivers to take the necessary precautions to avoid drowsy driving or falling asleep at the wheel by following these steps: • Get a good night’s sleep before hitting the road • Don’t be too rushed to arrive at your destination • Take a break every two hours or 100 miles to refresh • Use the buddy system to keep you awake and share driving chores • Avoid alcohol and medications that cause drowsiness as a side effect • Avoid driving when you would normally be sleeping

Deadline looms to remove political signs The regulation applies to political signs in the public right-of-ways and on private property. The Washington state Department of Transportation also has a deadline to remove political signs. Political signs are outright banned in state highway right-of-ways. A political sign on private property that’s visible from a state highway must be removed 10 days after the election. That 10-day period ends on Nov. 16. State highways that run through

Renton include State Routes 169, 167, 900 and Interstate 405. Failure to remove the sign is a misdemeanor. Alice Fiman, a transportation department spokeswoman, said the state works with candidates to educate them about the proper placement of political signs. Maintenance workers remove signs from rights of way, she said, and the state could contact owners of private property if a visible sign is reported.

The general election is over but there’s still one matter – removing all those political signs. Political signs within Renton city limits need to be removed within 14 days following the Nov. 6 general election, so Nov. 20 is the deadline, under City of Renton ordinance. Failure to remove a sign that’s still standing on Nov. 21 could result in a $100 fine and loss of the sign. The total fine for all signs that violate the ordinance is capped at $10,000.

● QUOTE OF NOTE:

“We’ve had quite the increase (in families) without the same amount of donations,” Beverly Storey, social services director for the Salvation Army, on the need for Thanksgiving turkeys

Our view

Cost of elections in eye-popping billions of dollars

H

umorist Will Rogers once noted that “politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated.” If he could only see it now. Estimates put the cost of the recent presidential race at $2.6 billion. That means one side spent more than $1 billion only to lose. We’d hope there was a lesson there – but we doubt it. If the public were to believe the unending direct mail pieces flooding mailboxes, countless robo-phone calls, and an unconscionable number of vile “hit pieces” on television, they would conclude that the best candidate for the job should have been “none of the above.” We suspect many people were sick of the whole thing weeks before Nov. 6. The blame for a lot of this falls on the “super PACs,” collections of groups outside a politician’s direct campaign that are allowed to raise unlimited amounts of money. The situation actually is worse since many groups don’t have to register with the Federal Election Commission because they say they are focusing on “educational,” not “political” activities. We’re calling – well, you know – on that. This money-grubbing situation isn’t limited to the presidential race. The cost of political campaigns nationwide is estimated to be $6 billion. In our state alone, the race for governor is expected to reach a total cost of $46 million. Despite this national effort, many voters say they don’t expect things to change much regardless of who is elected president. We may not get the “best candidate that money can buy,” but we’re certainly getting one who is ridiculously expensive.

Congratulations, Supt. Heuschel

O

nce again, there’s a sign why Renton’s schools are in good hands. Renton School Superintendent Mary Alice Heuschel has been tapped as one of three transition co-chairs for Gov.-elect Jay Inslee. The assignment, which Heuschel says won’t affect her school duties, is testament to the high standing Heuschel is held by the state’s policy leaders. And don’t forget she’s also a state superintendent of the year. Heuschel brings to the table a deep understanding of what it will take to improve the state’s educational system, putting learning first for all students, regardless of their abilities or financial status.

Your gay friends, neighbors are worthy of full citizenship Every election cycle, somewhere in America, voters are given the opportunity to restrict, approve, or nullify the fundamental civil rights of gay and lesbian citizens. Sometimes, the question is whether it should be legal to discriminate against gay people in the workplace. Other times, it’s whether gay people should have the right to make medical decisions for their partners, adopt children together, or legally wed. Nearly every legislative and judicial victory for gay equality finds its way onto a ballot, where it’s subject to the tyranny of the majority. Adding insult to injury, the forces opposed to LGBT equality always turn to ugly mischaracterizations and outright lies to scare voters into suspending their sense of fairness. Sadly, such tactics are usually effective. But not last week in Washington, Maine, Maryland, and Minnesota. The approval of Referendum 74 last Tuesday was more than simply an affirmation of marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples. It was a transformative event for those of us who grew up knowing that when we found our soul mate, many people would not only disparage our love and commitment, but would see to it that our relationship never gained equal protection or recognition under the law. Nearly every gay person has experienced some form of bullying, verbal harassment, or physical violence, but perhaps the most dehumanizing form of antigay hostility occurs when our basic human rights are put to a vote of the masses. It’s difficult to describe how painful it is to have your neighbors vote on whether you deserve the same rights and protections that they hold dear. Some of the setbacks we’ve endured have been utterly heartbreaking. In the summer of 2008, it was briefly possible for same sex couples to Kevin Poole

legally marry in California. My husband Bryce and I flew down to California to get married in a civil ceremony, and returned home to Renton to congratulations and excitement from our friends, family, and co-workers. Weeks later, Proposition 8, the constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in California, passed with a small majority. We were completely caught off guard by the emotional impact of the loss. It was indescribably painful to have our personal relationship repudiated in such a public manner, the result of a campaign based on fear and falsehoods. All over the country, LGBT people and our allies spontaneously took to the streets, peacefully expressing our grief but also vowing to continue the struggle for equality in a way we never had before. We had no idea the tide would turn so quickly in just four years. Last Tuesday, a majority of voters in four states changed the course of gay rights in this country forever by voting in support of same sex marriage equality. In so doing, they sent a clear message that their gay friends and neighbors are worthy of full citizenship. The old wounds that many of us have carried since childhood can now begin to heal. There’s still much work to be done; in 35 states, you can still be fired for being gay, and the deceptively-titled Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) still denies all federal benefits to gay and lesbian couples. But the trajectory is now clear: sooner rather than later, we will see full equality under the law for all gay Americans. On a final note, I sincerely appreciate the efforts of our Renton area state representatives and senators, all of whom co-sponsored the original marriage equality bills in the House and Senate. And special thanks to State Rep. Marcie Maxwell for her tireless work on behalf of LGBT equality.

$7.6B county budget OK’d State faces $900M budget shortfall The Metropolitan King County Council Tuesday unanimously adopted a 2013 King County budget that continues to meet the needs of county residents while making strategic investments for King County’s future, according to a county press release. The $7.6 billion budget includes a $685 million General Fund budget, of which 73 percent is directed toward public safety and criminal justice programs. Even as the county continues to feel the effect of the Great Recession, the proposed budget would maintain the county’s AAA bond rating by not using the County’s cash reserves or tapping the rainy day fund, according to the press release. The budget includes: • $1.3 million in funds to countywide regional human service organizations to help shore-up the health and human services safety net. These funds support domestic violence shelters, legal aid, services for sexual assault survivors, post-incarceration education, and housing services. • Funds to support a coordinated, comprehensive approach to the issue of human trafficking. The adopted budget requires the Sheriff and Public Health-Seattle King County to lead a countywide effort to address human trafficking. The collaborative approach will find and support victims, develop successful suppression strategies, identify strategic investment opportuni-

ties, and provide additional shelter beds. • Leveraging the Affordable Care Act by requiring the Executive to assess and propose an integrated health and human services plan which will likely include the reorganization or consolidation of county departments. • Preserving funding and staffing levels for the Superior and District Courts and the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. This will allow the ability to file criminal cases in a timely and judicious manner and supports the diversion of low-level adult and juvenile cases from the criminal justice system. • It allocates funding to ensure that the King County Sheriff ’s Office has sufficient resources to maintain and replace the commissioned officers it needs for patrol. The Office has seen a growing number of retirements. • Makes strategic investments to reduce recidivism by continuing to support two gang intervention programs and improve educational opportunities for those leaving jail. • It asks the county executive to work with the cities that are a part of the County’s solid waste system to determine their long-term commitment. This will either reinforce the need for the half-billion dollar transfer station upgrade process, or determine the need to reevaluate those investments.

Washington faces a projected $900 million state budget shortfall for the 2013–15 biennium and an even larger shortfall of nearly $1.1 billion for the following biennium (2015–17), according to a fouryear outlook released Thursday by the Washington State Economic and Revenue Forecast Council. The outlook was released in conjunction with the November revenue forecast, which reduced General Fund revenue projections for the 2013–15 biennium by $88 million, compared to the previous quarterly forecast in September. The next two-year budget cycle begins July 1, 2013. The Forecast Council’s revenue projection for the current biennium (2011–13) increased, but by only $8 million, according to a press release from the state. “Revenue collections are on track, but personal income is falling off slightly compared to our previous forecast,” said Steve Lerch, council executive director. “Our overall forecast is down a very small amount as a result.” Still, Gov. Chris Gregoire said she was encouraged by many of the economic indicators underlying today’s forecast, especially in the housing and export sectors, according to the press release. “Housing is more affordable than it has

been in a long time and aerospace remains strong,” Gregoire said. “While we are seeing clear signs of recovery, economic growth remains slow, and we have to ensure that every Washingtonian who wants a job has one.” Gregoire, who is preparing her final budget before leaving office in January, noted that the Forecast Council’s estimated $900 million near-General Fund shortfall for 2013–15 is slightly better than what the Office of Financial Management had projected in a preliminary outlook in August. But she stressed that the outlook does not include any additional spending that will be needed to meet basic education needs identified by the state Supreme Court in the McCleary decision. “We have a shortfall even before we begin trying to address McCleary,” Gregoire said. “I’ve instructed state agencies and my fiscal staff to scrub the budget for every possible savings. But, as I’ve been saying for months, it will not be possible to solve this problem entirely with spending cuts.” The governor is required by law to propose a 2013–15 budget by Dec. 20. The Forecast Council will then release a new four-year outlook in January based on the governor’s proposed budget.

Rotary Club presents dictionaries For the seventh year, the Rotary Club of Renton presented dictionaries to more than 1,200 third-grade students in the Renton School District. Rotary members have been visiting schools throughout the district since Nov. 7 and personally presenting students with the dictionaries. The books are the students to write their names in and take home to share with their families, a district release said. The books cost more than $10,000 and were bought to ensure that each student has a personal dictionary at home. The gifts were a part of Rotary Club members efforts to promote early childhood education and stress the importance of student reading at grade level by third grade. The district reports that students who received the dictionaries in the past said they used the books with their siblings or their parents to help teach them English.

Renton Rotary and School Board member, Al Talley passes out new dictionaries to Honey Dew Elementary School third-graders. This marks the seventh year that Rotarians have purchased dictionaries to provide to the district’s more than 1,200 third-graders. submitted Renton Rotary members also provide children with

new coats for the winter and offer family free

Work begins on charter schools Rummage sale at RTC Initiative 1240 calls for the State Board of Education to work with local school districts who wish to authorize a charter school. Charter school authorizers must apply to the State Board for license and must also submit annual reports to the Board evaluating charter schools’ performance under contract. By March of 2013, the State Board will establish an annual application and approval process and timelines for local school boards seeking approval to be charter school authorizers. The Board will hold a public hearing on proposed rules in February of 2013. More information on charter schools is available at www.sbe.wa.gov/charters.php.

She’ll explain pre-kindergarten plans [ Heuschel rom page 1] “I’ll be busy, but the truth be told I’m always busy,” she said. Inslee was clear in his expectations of his transition team, Heuschel said. He remarked at the press conference about the proven leadership qualities of the three he chose. Heuschel was singled out for being a change agent and her work focusing on what counts and what matters. She believes she was also chosen for her network of contacts that speak to issues on Inslee’s agenda. Heuschel brought up her

interest around healthcare and education as an example of the kind of networks she brings to the table. Inslee made it clear he wants to use his three transition team co-chairs’ expertise, but also their networks. One of Heuschel’s first assignments will be to announce Inslee’s commitment to pre-kindergarten education at an annual conference of state superintendents and their school board members this weekend in Spokane.

Renton Technical College will hold their fifth annual Rummage Sale this Saturday, Nov. 17. The sale will be on from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., on campus in Cafeteria Building I, 3000 NE Fourth St. in Renton. Clothing, housewares, gently-used furniture and many more items will be available. The Rummage Sale is hosted by the Renton Technical College Foundation and the Administrative Office Management Students Class of 2013.

The money is applied directly to costs like utility bills. “The Renton Technical College Foundation knows that many of our students are just one accident or late bill away from not being able to complete their education and get the training they need for a great job,” wrote Susanna Williams, college relations director in an email. “The Student Emergency Fund gives our students a necessary bridge in times of need.”

The Washington State Board of Education has initiated the process of implementing a framework for the state’s first public charter schools. The Board’s work with public charter schools began with the apparent passage of Initiative 1240. Though the results are not yet final, the ‘yes’ vote leads by approximately 45,000 votes. The final results may not be official until Dec. 6, the last day results can be certified by the Secretary of State. Assuming approval, the State Board of Education will work closely with the new Washington State Charter School Commission to oversee up to 40 new public charter schools.

Ricarda Cross Spee November 16, 1927 – October 31, 2012

Ricarda Cross Spee lost her 8-month battle with brain cancer on October 31, 2012 at her home in Edmonds, Washington. She was 84 years old. Born in Brookline, Massachusetts, to Constance and Samuel Cross on November 16, 1927, she was the youngest of three sisters including Caroline (Nanine) Chase and Ann Limerick who preceded her in death. Together, they called themselves “The Three Graces” after a painting by Botticelli that hung in their parent’s parlor. Ricarda grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts and attended Shady Hill School, Peabody Elementary, Buckingham School, and Brimmer-May School in Boston. After graduating from high school in Pittsburgh, PA; she attended University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where she received her B.A. in English. In 1951, Ricarda married Karl Jacob Spee of Grand Rapids, Michigan and together moved to Seattle. They had six children and built their home in Renton where she lived until 1996 when she moved to Shoreline,WA. In 2001, she moved to Bell Street in Edmonds where she resided until her death. Ricarda loved reading, travelling with her sisters, choral music, theater, volunteer work, and her career. Her house was always full of books. An avid camper in her youth, she enjoyed meeting her sisters for Elderhostels around the US, barge trips in Europe, or a week at her sister Nanine’s house in Rockport, MA. She loved to meet friends for choral concerts in Seattle and had season tickets to Intiman and Seattle Repertory Theatre. Ricarda was dedicated to helping others. She volunteered at her church, in PTA at her children’s schools, at the Juvenile Court Diversion Committee in Renton, and at Senior Services in Seattle. Her longest and deepest volunteer commitment was her weekly and sometimes twice weekly shift at the Crisis Clinic suicide prevention hotline in Seattle that began in 1977 and continued for the next 35 years. After starting her family, she helped her husband Karl found Alpine Helicopters in 1963 and learned accounting by handling all of the records for the business. After her divorce in 1977, she worked briefly for Elling Halvorson Construction before joining Advertising Distributor Services, in downtown Seattle, and then Technic Water Services in Ballard.The longest and most successful role of her career was at Spee West Construction in Edmonds. Between the founding of the company by her son Douglas in 1990 and her reluctant retirement in 2010, she worked on 84 Spee West projects. Ricarda is survived by her six children: Mark Spee of Olympia, WA; Douglas Spee of Shoreline, WA; James Spee of Redlands, CA; Constance Mumford of Kalamazoo, MI; David Spee of Maui, HI; and Robert Spee of Alpharetta, GA; 17 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren.

Man points gun at relatives in estate dispute The following information was compiled based on City of Renton police reports.

An officer responded to a car stalled on BremerThis week’s… ton Avenue with a group trying to push it out of the street. The officer asked if they wanted help. One of the three boys started to walk away and the other two acted suspiciously. The officer asked whose car it was, and the two who remained looked around frantically before one of them finally identified himself as the driver. The officer called in backup to go after the boy who walked away and tried to interview the driver, a 19-yearold Bellevue man. The driver appeared to be high, but when the officer called his mom, she said he was allowed to have the car.

Police Blotter

By ADAM McFADDEN amcfadden@rentonreporter.com

A Renton man was arrested after pointing a gun at family members Oct. 21. Police were called when a 39-year-old man drove by two family members in a minivan and pointed a gun out the window at them. The family has been having a dispute about how to split up the mother’s estate. The mother is still alive and living in Bonney Lake. While the police officer was interviewing the two family members, the suspect drove up and pointed the gun out the window again. The officer drew his weapon and told the man to drop his weapon. The man complied and was handcuffed. The man admitted that he was planning to shoot his relatives if necessary, but not “to kill but to injure them.” He said when he pulled up a second time, he was not pointing his gun at the officer, rather was simply trying to hand his gun to the officer.

Man locks girlfriend on balcony A 27-year-old Renton man was arrested after locking his girlfriend out on the balcony of their apartment Oct. 18. The man and his 23-year-old girlfriend got into a fight the night before about some neighbor girls after attending a party. The fight escalated and the man eventually knocked the woman to the ground. She went out to the second-story balcony to get away from him. He locked the sliding-glass door, then passed out inside. The woman feared for her children inside the apartment and called the police. They arrested the man for unlawful imprisonment.

Stalled car leads to trouble A Renton boy was arrested on warrants after walking away from an officer Oct. 22.

The boy had an orange juice bottle that appeared to have vodka in it by the smell. After officers searched him, they found a water bottle with what appeared to be vodka in his backpack. Officers transported the boy home.

Woman troubles apartment complex with series of crimes A Renton woman is suspected in a series of crimes at an apartment complex. The 19-year-old woman has been terrorizing an apartment complex in the Renton Highlands.

YES – they matter a lot! Decayed or decaying baby teeth can potentially represent active infection in the mouth. Anytime there is infection in the body or mouth, it requires immediate attention by a physician or dentist, respectively. Long term, if baby teeth are left to rot, fall out, or get extracted, there is greater potential for permanent teeth to grow in and shift requiring future orthodontic care.

King County Sheriff Steve Strachan said in a press release his office will “not focus on behavior that will be legal under Washington State law after Dec. 6.” There are 12 cities that contract with the Sheriff ’s Office for police services. It remains the policy decision of the municipal attorneys and policy makers of those cities to determine how they will proceed between now and Dec. 6, according to the Sheriff ’s Office.

Patriots on to quarterfinals; Eagles fall after early lead The Liberty girls soccer team beat Bonney Lake 3-1 Nov. 10 in the 3A state soccer tournament. The Patriots (14-3-1) play Columbia River Friday at 2 p.m. at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup in the 3A state quarterfinals. The winner will play the winner of Holy Names and Mount Spokane in the state title game Saturday at Sparks at 2 p.m. The loser will play the loser of the Holy Names/Mount Spokane in the 3rd/4th place game Saturday at Sparks at

10 a.m. Against Bonney Lake, Liberty took the lead when Nicolle Marlow scored an unassisted goal at the 17-minute mark. Kiana Hafferty scored two goals later, one assisted by Kali Youngdahl. After a scoreless first half, Liberty pulled away to beat Shorecrest 2-0 in the first round of the 3A state tournament Nov. 7. The Patriots got their first goal when Kali Youngdahl headed in a corner kick by Kiana Hafferty in the 59th

minute. Youngdahl then assisted Jacquelyn Anderson minutes later. Kennedy was the only Seamount team to make the 3A tournament. The Lancers fell to Everett 4-0 in the first round. Lindbergh The Lindbergh girls soccer team fell 2-1 to Hockinson in the first round of the 2A state tournament Nov. 7. The Eagles (13-5) got off to a hot start when Elise Aylward hit a cross from the left side that Lindsey Pfluger headed in for a goal

less than 30 seconds into the game. The teams then traded blows and close shots, playing a physical game. Hockinson tied the game about halfway through the

second half, then took the lead minutes later. Lindbergh’s season is over after winning a share of the Seamount title and advancing to state for the third time in the past four years. Hockinson fell to Squalicum in the next round of the tournament. Aylward finished the year with 32 goals, 11 more than any other player in the Seamount. She also had 13 assists.

Photo tips: Capture holidays with Bruce Hudson image quality possible, or the highest resolution JPG file. The days of setting the image quality to low so you have more storage are over. The flash cards are cheaper and can hold more high-resolution images now. Plus, the higher quality the image the more cool ways you can output and enjoy them around the house. More on this in Tip No. 5! • Weather permitting, take the large family group photos outside if you can. You’ll have more space to work with and the lighting should be easier. Also, try using your flash outside and get that light into your subject’s eyes. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with your Bruce Hudson

With the holidays upon us, we thought we would ask national award-winning and celebrity photographer Bruce Hudson for some tips on taking family photos over the holidays. Here’s his advice for all you shutterbugs out there: • Always set your camera to MANUAL, not auto. You might encounter some tricky indoor mixed lighting situations and your camera can be fooled. MANUAL will give you more control and will allow you to take a better photograph. If you get stuck, pull out your manual, it will help you get the settings right. Also, there are a lot of photography classes out there where you can learn how to work your camera better; we actually teach one at my studio. • Set your camera at the highest

results! • Shoot with a purpose and try to have a center of interest with your composition. This doesn’t mean “put everyone in the middle,” but try to give your portrait something that makes the subjects stand out and not blend into the background. This is why professionals have subjects dress in similar solid colors for portraiture; it puts the flesh tones out front and makes the people’s expression the center of interest, not what they are wearing. • Enjoy what you have created by printing the photographs! Please, get those images off of your phone, camera, and computer and start enjoying them. Print some copies for your family or make an album, the sky is the limit! The quality for most of the stuff you can order online (inkjet, magazine style albums,

etc.) is pretty good, not professional quality, but you will be able to display it proudly in your home and enjoy what you have created!

Looking back there were other gifts that in retrospect didn’t cost a dime but were treasured, like visits with Grandma during the holidays with our cousins.

We always left Andy’s apartment with our pockets filled with sugar cookies and his wheelchair. We would spend hours flying back and forth through senior courtyard, drag racing those wheelchairs. But my absolute favorite thing about these visits was cooking with my grandma. Her dishes were often the kind that simmered away all day in a soup pot —inexpensive cuts of meat, soup bones and gizzards. She was an amazing baker, Bundt cakes, oatmeal raisin cookies and the best baked rice pudding with three inches of custard. Her food was warm and comforting. She had been raised with seven siblings and had five daughters of her own and I don’t think she ever got used to living alone and not being a part of something [ more carolyn page 19 ]

My heart pounded in my chest as Grandma handed me her “peg leg” and commenced scrolling down the specialty cream-colored sock which covered her stump. She was quite the show woman!

Grandma let us take her wheelchair outside and we all fought over who got to push and who got to ride as we cruised across the courtyard to her neighbor, Andy. Like Grandma, Andy

Holidays all about precious memories

Bartell collects toys for Salvation Army

[ carolyn from page 18 ] larger than herself. One day I was eating a thick slice of my grandma’s steamy oniony meatloaf with baked ketchup running like a river down the middle alongside a mound of buttery mashed potatoes. I remembered my dad used to call her “Red” and I asked her if it was because she was Irish. “I’m Heinz 57,” Grandma replied, referring to the famous ketchup slogan. “What does that mean?” I had asked. “It doesn’t matter what your color, I’m an American and we’re all a little bit of everything,” she said with a smile. These precious childhood memories with the tree and my grandma serve as reminders about what the holidays are about. Appreciating what you have. Spending time with family and friends and giving back

to the community in whatever way you can. And so, this column is dedicated to my Grandma Edna Ruth Cusack. Thank you, Grandma, for teaching me your simple recipes and Heinz 57 creed, gifts that I have never forgotten. This holiday season I’m baking Christmas cookies with kids at the IKEA kitchen. In homage to my grandma and Andy, our family will be packaging up and delivering Christmas cookies to low-income Renton seniors. Merry Christmas, Grandma.

I love suggestions! If you know of people or places in Renton that surprise, delight and inspire the community, drop me a line at carolyn@pippimamma.com. Also follow Carolyn on her blog, www. pippimamma.com.

Bartell Drugs is once again partnering with the Salvation Army to provide holiday gifts for children in need by collecting new, unwrapped toys during its ninth annual Salvation Army “Toy ‘N’ Joy” through Dec. 14. The toy donations will be

accepted at all 58 Bartell Drugs locations in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Toys will be distributed to low-income children and youth the week before Christmas through the Salvation Army’s “toy warehouses.” Donation options include:

• Choose a “gift request tag” from the “Toy ‘N’ Joy” display in the store and return the gift to the donation barrel with the tag affixed to it. • Donate new, unwrapped gifts appropriate for children up to 14 years-of-age.

Thanksgiving baskets need filling [ Turkeys from page 1]

206 S. Tobin St. The Salvation Army has been signing up families for the past seven weeks. It has 443 families signed up, but anticipates handing out a Thanksgiving meal to close to 600 families. Storey says she is not worried the Salvation Army will not meet its need, as they have always met it

in the past. “There is no Plan B,” she said. “I know that people are going to step up.” Regardless whether the Salvation Army receives enough turkeys to fill the baskets, it will have the rest of the food stuffs, Storey said. But, she remains confident that the Renton community will

support their efforts to feed those who need a Thanksgiving meal. The Salvation Army has reached out to local churches and New Life Church of Renton is one church that has agreed to do a food drive of their own in support of the organization. “One thing that’s great about the city of Renton is that they step up and always help,” said Storey

New trainer is open at Museum of Flight By Brian Beckley bbeckley@courierherald.com

Though it looks similar, there are a few differences between the actual Space Shuttles and the Full Fuselage Trainer at the public at the Museum of Flight in Tukwila. First, unlike the real things, the FFT is made of wood. And, of course, it’s not quite flight ready. “They have wings; we don’t have wings,”

Museum of Flight CEO Douglas King said, pointing to the back end of the life size, 120-foot model located in the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery. But the other major difference between the FFT and the actual Space Shuttles, now located in New York, Los Angeles, Florida and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C., is even more important. “This one you get to go inside,” King said. Beginning Saturday, the public is invited

to see what up until now has been the purview of the more than 300 astronauts who trained for the 135 shuttle missions over the 30 years of the program. Astronauts each took about 20 classes in the FFT facility in Houston, known as the Space Vehicle Mockup Building, or about 100 hours per mission. The trainer was built at Johnson Space Center in Houston in the 1970s and was used by every Shuttle Astronaut in preparation for their flight. According to King, now that the FFT is at the Museum of Flight, it will continue to educate, even more so than the actual orbiters. “For education purposes, this is it,” King said. Exhibit curator Dan Hagedorn agreed. “If people can’t experience it, they can’t learn from it,” Hagedorn said. The crew compartment, split on to two levels connected with a ladder, totals less than 165-square-feet of space, shared by up to seven astronauts, often for more than a week. The crew compartment’s mid-deck and flight deck will not be open to the general public due to the confined space, but the 61-foot long payload bay is open, as is a landing simulator. However, beginning Nov. 17 the museum will offer educational programs that take students inside the trainer.

Michael Best, 3, of West Seattle, flies the landing simulator with his grandmother Judy Williams. brian beckley, Reporter Newspapers

Ask An Expert.... Thanksgiving Dinner Is Not for Pets

Q. What is the difference

myth in the Pacific Northwest. Common sense dictates that the change in climate necessitates a change in how we manage our automobiles, but that is not necessarily the case with most modern automobiles. Changes in the antifreeze, oil weight, and tire pressures, while not in any way detrimental, usually aren’t necessary for the climate that we experience. What is necessary is standard maintenance of those systems, but nothing with a specific eye towards the weather. Your vehicles coolant, if properly maintained, is a half and half mixture of antifreeze and water, which will yield a protection level of -34ºf, plenty of protection for our weather. Only in much colder climates would you adjust this mixture to be stronger. If your coolant has not been changed in a few years, its recommended to have it tested for strength. Tire pressures should be checked regularly in all seasons, as fluxuations in temperatures will effect the air density of the tires. Manufacturer recommended oil weights are more than adequate to take cars through summer and winter, but as we’ve previously discussed, regular changes (3,000 miles for conventional, 5,000 for synthetic) are recommended. The main precautions you may want to take might really only be applicable to cars that are unused during the colder months. Any car that sits for an extended period of time should have the battery disconnected, or at least have a battery tender installed, as well as have the tire pressures overfilled by about 10 psi to prevent the tires from becoming misshapen during the off season.

between Market Value and Appraised Value?

Although Thanksgiving is a time for sharing, it is unhealthy to share holiday meal leftovers with our pets. Digestive problems affecting pets after the holidays occur because humans invite their animals to celebrate with high fat meals (ham, gravy, turkey skin), chocolates, bones, etc. Pancreatitis is a potentially fatal disease caused by ingesting highly fatty or rich foods that results in uncontrollable vomiting and diarrhea. Turkey bones are hollow and can easily break and splinter into sharp pieces, causing blockage and perforation of the intestinal tract. A pet who has a turkey bone lodged in the digestive system may not exhibit any symptoms for one or two days. However, when they do occur, symptoms include loss of appetite, depression, vomiting or diarrhea and may result in an emergency surgery to remove the bones. Additionally, it is important to know your pet’s temperament. If lots of people are coming over and your pet is not used to parties and lots of noise or is food aggressive, consider placing, them in a quiet part of the house until the guests leave. Conversely, if your pet is a party animal and loves to mix and mingle, be sure to ask your guests NOT to slip them table scraps or treats without permission. Companion animals given leftover turkey to eat can also suffer from salmonella food poisoning. Salmonella is an organism that lives in the turkey’s intestinal tract. Meat that sits out at room temperature for too long can cause salmonella organisms to multiply and cause contamination. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning include gastrointestinal upset, vomiting, diarrhea, depression, a high temperature, loss of appetite and listlessness. Consult a veterinarian immediately should a pet exhibit any symptoms of pancreatitis, turkey bone ingestion or salmonella poisoning. 695721

A. These terms are often, mistakenly, used interchangeably. There is a big difference between the two. The Appraised Value of a property is determined by a licensed Appraiser, usually at the request of a bank or mortgage company. Appraised valuations are based upon condition of the property, location, amenities and sales within the last 6 months which were in the immediate area. There is no emotion involved with this method of valuation. It is about the numbers, period. Market Value on the other hand, is more subjective. It is what someone is willing to pay for a property within a reasonable period of time. This method of valuation is used by industry professionals and home owners when determining a list price for a property and takes into consideration factors, beyond closed sales. These include competing properties, absorption rates, consumer confidence, and other things such as functional obsolescence and upgrades. In the home purchase process, the goal is for the Appraised value to be equal to or greater than the negotiated sales price, thus substantiating the Market value.
