Habitat for Humanity gives family ‘an extra life’ By ADAM McFADDEN amcfadden@rentonreporter.com

When Yesihak Hassen was spending 15 days in the jungle trying to escape the violence in his homeland of Ethiopia, he never could have imagined where he would be 26 years later. “I feel like I’m living an extra life now,” Hassan said from his new home in Renton.

Hassen and his family moved into their home through Habitat for Humanity of East King County in early November, just in time to have family over for the holidays. “I’ve just been calling everybody and saying come on down,” he said. Hassen met his wife Hannan in Sudan and they moved to Washington in 1993 with the International Rescue Committee. They have four children, Sofia (18),

Rukeya (13), Firdaus (9), and Jawhar (4). Hannan’s mother Rugeya also lives with the family. Before getting their new home, the seven lived in a three-bedroom, onebathroom apartment in Seattle. “It was really hard with one bathroom,” Hassen said. “We knocked into each other all the time. Now with three, there’s no problem at all.” [ more Habitat page 9 ]

City Council nearing finale of budget OK By DEAN A. RADFORD dradford@rentonreporter.com

The Renton City Council is nearing completion of its deliberations for the $457 million city budget for 2013 and 2014. Monday, the public will have a chance to comment on the budget at the council’s meeting at 7 p.m. at its council chambers. Mayor Denis Law presented his budget proposal to the council in October. It came with a $10 million revenue shortfall that will mean staff cuts, some rate increases and other cost-saving measures. One possible new source of revenue is a $600 charge for patient transport by city fire crews to a hospital. The charge, which would be billed to an insurance carrier and not the patient, would raise about $325,000 a year for the general fund, under city estimates. Firefighters filled the City Council chambers Monday to raise objections to the new charge, pointing out transport is a service they now provide for free and the money wouldn’t necessarily go to fire services. “It will not do anything for the fire department,” said Mark dos Remedios, who is president of the Renton IAFF Local 864. But Jay Covington, the city’s chief administrative officer, points out that the fire department is funded from the general fund, which is supported by a number of revenue sources. That’s an advantage for the fire department, if one particular source falls short of forecast. The council is expected to finalize the budget on Dec. 3. The council meets on the seventh floor of City Hall.

investigation continues in fatal office crash Investigators are determining why an 81-year-old woman crashed through the window of the Bill Severyns Farmers Insurance agency on Logan Avenue Nov. 14, killing the office manager inside. “At this point any ‘cause’ would be pure speculation,” said Terri Vickers, a spokeswoman for the Renton Police Department. The driver is from Lakewood; she had no apparent injuries. Flowers marked where Kaye Hall, 60, of Bonney Lake was killed just before 11 a.m. on Nov. 14.

Puget Sound Access coming to Renton By TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

Puget Sound Access, the public TV station in South King County, is moving to Renton this January. Known to many as the providers of Channel 77, the non-profit’s lease at its Kent facility expires Dec. 31. The studio was closed on Oct. 27 and classes have been suspended. The move was prompted by a need for “a facility that better suits our 501( c )(3) non-profit’s mission of helping people use technologies to enhance communication within our community,” wrote John Klockner, the executive director, in an email. The studio’s current location is 22412 72nd Ave. S., in Kent, and around 9,000 square feet. Klockner hopes with some proposed re-configuration, Carco Theater will be a better set-up. “Carco presents us with an opportunity in Renton to help our local creative community better engage both live and mediated audiences,” Klockner said. “While traditional theater events can still focus on the in-venue ticket holders and the actions of the performers on-stage, we can bring to the theater technologies and live-event media experience that will enable productions to do more and to touch more people.” Although the Carco space is bigger, it’s 12,000 square-feet, it offers less space to work with because of the theater seating arrangement. This means considerably less, but adequate space for Puget Sound Access’ post-production and other activities, Klockner said. The Carco Theater stage area is roughly the size of the organization’s current studio. The current location has a large studio with control and dressing rooms, post-production and conference rooms, facilities for hardware and software development, staff offices, a lobby and areas for storage of equipment and set pieces. Klockner envisions “expanding the theater’s possibilities and reach,” so he can grow Carco as a community resource. Currently, Puget Sound Access is in negotiations with the City of Renton on lease terms for Carco.

Puget Sound Access is moving its studios to the Carco Theatre next to the Renton Community Center. Dean a. radford, Renton Reporter Issues include base rent, revenue sharing, theater improvements to be paid by the non-profit and the number of days the City of Renton may reserve for free events to be staffed by Puget Sound Access. Also up for discussion is the personnel and equipment Puget Sound Access will provide to the theater’s clients. Klockner plans to increase both full-time staff to operate the facility and temporary staff to assist with events. The positions will be

funded by Puget Sound Access. The organization itself is funded through membership dues, fees for production work for cities, nonprofits and through investment income and allocations from a 2001 founding trust fund. Klockner says his organization has proposed converting the basement area into a working office and production space. They have also proposed modernizing Carco’s computer network and television feeds to improve

communication to and from the building. “We want to bring to Carco our advanced media production tools so that events and performances on the stage may more easily be produced, recorded and perhaps even eventually broadcast live on television or over the Internet,” said Klockner. Puget Sound Access will foot the bill for all improvements to the theater, Klockner says. Puget Sound Access used to focus on providing specialized production facilities and tools to help people and organizations create content for distribution over cable television channels. “Nowadays, with contemporary technologies making video so easy and inexpensive to produce and distribute, our challenge is to help producers create content that merits notice in a sea of competing alternatives,” Klockner said. “While we do this in a variety of ways, the most important means with respect to Carco involves our helping people integrate media into live performances.” Puget Sound Access has been the primary media services provider for ShoWare Center in Kent.

Don’t forget your pets in emergency plans By TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

Area officials urge the community not to forget about emergency plans for pets as flooding season is here. Recently, representatives from the King County Flood Control District, Regional Animal Services of King County and the City of Seattle visited the Pet Adoption Center in Kent to stress the importance of preparedness during disaster. Steve Bleifuhs called out three reasons why having a plan for pets during a disaster is key. He is the river and floodplain manager for King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks. The first is that flooding is the most common weather-related disaster in the area. Second, a plan allows others to rely on you. Last, not knowing what to do with pets is one of the reasons why people don’t follow disaster and storm

warnings. Officials remarked that after disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and train derailments in the Midwest, disaster victims did not have a plan for their pets. People often thought they could return for their animals, but the resolution to the emergency didn’t happen as quickly as they expected. “It’s not that people abandon (their pets); it’s that people think things are temporary and, of course, it’s always outside of our control what happens,” said Gene Mueller, a manager for King County Regional Animal Services. Mueller asked that people make a pact to move themselves and their pets out of harm’s way during emergencies. Part of doing that involves creating a supply kit for pets full of food, water, and any medications for at least two weeks. Included in that kit should be collars with

The presentation was part of the Take Winter By Storm campaign to help citizens get prepared before bad weather hits. The hands-on demonstration also unveiled a new emergency, mobile animal shelter called the PETS or Pet Emergency Trailer

Seattle vehicle, owned by the City of Seattle. It can accommodate up to 40 animals or critters with crates and supplies in the event of an emergency. The trailer was purchased with funds from a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant. It’s for regional use, but there is a chance that during a ma-

jor disaster the vehicle will be limited to just Seattle. “The other thing that we have come prepared for, and I know that King County is also prepared for, is we do have supplies that are located throughout the region,” said Kara Main-Hester, manager for City of Seattle volunteer programs and fundraising.

Accompanied by The Wheedle, the Take Winter By Storm mascot, Main-Hester gave a brief overview of the supplies in the trailer. There will be more crates, bowls and supplies in specific locations throughout the region at area human shelters, she said. “Honestly, they’re in garages throughout the region, along with some of the human sheltering supplies that we need,” MainHester said. “So, they’re actually packaged together so that when you open a human shelter you can open a pet shelter too.” The issue first surfaced when there was concern about the Green River and the need arose to create pet supplies offsite at depots away from the Kent animal shelter. “So we’re working very collaboratively to use all of our resources to synergize and help people with their pets,” said Mueller.

How much water is enough? As a general rule, the amount of water your child should consume (ounces) a day is equal to half their total body weight in pounds.

Metro Transit is planning two meetings this month in Renton to discuss the RapidRide F Line and possible changes to bus service in 2013. The open houses are: • Tuesday, Nov. 27, 6–7:30 p.m. at Renton Technical College, 3000 N.E. Fourth St., Renton, Room C-111 • Thursday, Nov. 29, 6–7:30 p.m. at Renton High School, 400 S. Second St., Renton. King County Metro Transit is moving forward with plans to launch the RapidRide F Line between Burien and Renton in September 2013 and wants to hear input from transit customers at meetings scheduled later this month as nearby service changes are considered. The F Line will connect Burien, SeaTac, Tukwila and Renton, replacing the Route 140 with more frequent sevenday service. To serve more riders and make the transit system more efficient, Metro might also change other bus routes in Renton in September, according to a county press release. Routes with possible changes include routes 105, 110, 155, 908 and 909. Reorganizing some routes allows Metro to reduce duplication and invest transit resources in areas with higher ridership demand and higher potential for ridership growth. Metro is accepting public input through Friday, Dec. 7, and will have another round of public meetings early next year before making a recommendation to the King County Council. The public can learn more and complete an online questionnaire by visiting metro.kingcounty.gov/have-a-say and clicking on “Renton Transit Restructure.” Comments or questions can be emailed to HaveASay@kingcounty.gov or shared by phone at 206-263-9768.

● Q U O T E O F N O T E : “I’ve just been calling everybody and saying come on down,“ Yesihak Hassen, who just moved with his family into a new home thanks to Habitat for Humanit of East King County

Elected leaders now need to get to work for us

The hangover from the general election is about gone. The counting is pretty much done; all that’s left is certifying the results, a mere formality that happens on Tuesday. The political picture hasn’t changed much in the state and nation. Barack Obama is still president; he still has a Democratic Senate and a Republican House. That’s important because an election is a chance to reset who’s on the political playing field. Apparently, we as a nation like who’s calling the shots, who’s carrying the ball for us. What that tells me is that Barack Obama has a mandate to push forward with his agenda, to lead us where we’ve asked to go. One place I don’t want to go is over that “fiscal cliff ” where we could fall into the arms of a recession and lose what we’ve saved for – a college education, a retirement, food on the table. So what needs to happen is the extension of those tax breaks for those making $250,000 a year or less, which is pretty much everyone reading this. For those not reading this, accept the fact that America’s wealthy will have to pay more. Republican leaders need to accept that and put helping the struggling middle class and small businesses at the top of their to-do list. A decisive election for Barack Obama will give them the cover to do so. Dean Radford

OPINION

[6] November 23, 2012

**** Much closer to home, we have a new governor, Jay Inslee, who had better learn to listen a lot to those around him, including Renton Supt. Mary Alice Heuschel She is one of his top advisers during the transition from another Democratic governor, Christine Gregoire. As of late, Inslee has spent a lot of time in Washington, D.C., as a congressman. I hope the lesson that he’s learned that ultra-partisanship on either side doesn’t work. Gregoire has brought the state through some tough times. She’ll be missed. But Inslee will inherit something from her, too: a lot of red ink. The state is facing yet another massive deficit, nearly $1 billion in the next two years and maybe another $1 billion in the two years after that. In Olympia it’s clear that Inslee and the legislators need to carefully shepherd the dollars that go to education and, frankly, find more, hundreds of millions more. The rest of us will have to accept that services and programs in other areas will suffer. **** So if you’re reading this you’re probably still a bit full from that Thanksgiving dinner. If you’re not reading this, it’s maybe because you’re taking advantage of Black Friday sales or off cutting a Christmas tree. But we’ll be thankful if our national leaders avoid that fiscal cliff and our state leaders fully fund education and still provide the essential services we expect from the state.

Guest commentary

West Hill faces uncertain future Two groups organized to inform the public about the annexation to Renton, the West Hill Yes (WHY) Committee and the No on Annexation individuals. The No on Annexation individuals turned it into a campaign about “outsiders,” big money, and losing the volunteer firefighters. The Yes Committee included 10 local residents and two members of the West Hill Business Association and focused on 20 years of deterioration in the area, the loss of businesses and the erosion of services. WHY contrasted this deterioration with the benefits of annexation to Renton, including greater representation and access to elected officials, new services offered by Renton for young people and seniors, enhanced police and safety protection, economic development opportunities in the business corridor; all while maintaining and matching what Fire District No. 20 provides to residents and businesses. Those in favor of annexation realized that Skyway needed a lifeline. Because unincorporated urban areas have bore the brunt of King County budget cuts, we have had to fight to keep our park open, restore and retain our storefront deputy, and also maintain overnight police service. The City of Renton worked tirelessly in our favor; investing considerable time, effort and finances, and offering viable solutions for most of the challenges King County could not. Now we can no longer say that we didn’t have the opportunity to choose city-level services to replace the rural-level services the county provides. We therefore should no longer complain about: • Lack of businesses • Casinos • A financially challenged fire department • A park needing renovation • Lack of a community center • Lack of traffic speed control • Unmaintained roads, especially in wintertime • Lack of response to power outages when roads are icy • An escalating crime rate and declining prop-

erty values • New fees for rural roads • Lax code enforcement (Mount Anderson) • Lack of infrastructure improvements • Defunding and removal of recognition for our West Hill Community Association • Lax animal control • Rising garbage rates • Lack of influence in state and county government • Lack of sufficient law enforcement resources There is anger, disappointment and depression on the hill since the election. The NO group has nothing to offer us as a viable alternative to annexation. Will the City of Renton keep us in their PAA? Will another city hand us a lifeline? That is doubtful. We are in a worse position than before. This was a very bad choice for the West Hill/Skyway community. With the failure of annexation, who will take up the mantle to fight for services that will be diminished further in the future? Will the No on Annexation individuals formally organize as a group and provide the leadership for the future that the West Hill deserves? Do they recognize the magnitude of their responsibility to provide leadership that offers solutions to the loss of services and opportunities on the hill? What will their victory really mean to our community? WHY is grateful for all who supported our efforts with their time, contributions and vote. We thank the legislators who fought for tax credits and the individuals and elected officials for their endorsement. We thank the Renton City Council for providing us with this opportunity to vote on annexation. Mayor Denis Law and City staff are appreciated for their time and information.

Renton comes through, delivers turkeys for needy By TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

Despite having only two turkeys for their annual Thanksgiving meals last week, the Salvation Army received more than 800 turkeys to fill its food boxes just days before its distribution to hundreds of Renton families. About 380 people showed up during Monday’s downpour to collect their meals, which is telling of the need, said Beverly Storey, social services director for the Salvation Army. She was confident the Salvation Army Renton Rotary Food Bank would meet its goal to feed the 560 people who registered to receive the Thanksgiving meals. “We’re not doing this for us, we’re doing this for people who have a need,” she said. Fred Meyer came through with about 700 to 800 bags of holiday food items, along with Safeway and Albertsons, that donated a few hundred. Now the Salvation Army has enough non-perishable items to fill its Christmas baskets for December. “A lot of the families are new to this, so we try to move them through in a happy non-chaotic atmosphere,” said Storey. Local Tri-Med Ambulance volunteers were on hand as well as community and church helpers. Jen Sarginson was volunteering with her two sons, Colsen and Caden, on Tuesday because the food bank has helped them out in the past. Her church posted the volunteer oppor-

tunity and she thought it was a good way to give back. “It helped us out a lot when my husband was laid off,” Sarginson said. “So, it’s nice to be able to give back. They do a lot for people and we are very thankful for that.”

Man exposes himself in Fred Meyer parking lot The following information was compiled based on City of Renton police reports.

This week’s…

By ADAM McFADDEN

Police Blotter

amcfadden@rentonreporter.com

A Renton man was arrested after troubling customers, employees and police officers Oct. 29. Employees at the downtown Fred Meyer first realized there was an issue when vendors started to complain a man parked in a motor home behind the store was harassing them while they tried to make deliveries. The store manager contacted the motor home owner, a 63-year-old man, who became hostile and said the motor home was broken down. The manager said the man had one day to remove the motor home from the property. The next day, the motor home was still present, but the manager gave the man an additional day to arrange for transportation. The next day, the manager received more complaints from vendors. After another encounter with the man, the manager called the police. When police arrived and tried to contact the man, he stepped into the open RV door with no pants on and started to thrust his hips. Then he reached down and fondled himself. When police moved closer to arrest him, he walked into the motor home and returned to the door with a knife. Officers tazed him, then arrested him for indecent exposure and obstructing a public

A Bank of American building on Duvall Avenue was vandalized Oct. 21. Five areas of the bank were targeted with things such as “rape” and swastikas. The graffiti was reported at about 2:30 a.m. and the reporting party thought a nearby group of juveniles might be responsible. Police could find no evidence of who committed the crime.

A man tried to break into a woman’s home Oct. 23. The 21-year-old resident heard noises at her door, but ignored them at first. Later she came downstairs and saw a suspect she recognized, a 20-year-old man, in her back yard dressed in black with a screwdriver. She confronted the man and he ran away. The victim explained that the man used to be a woman who was a friend of the family. Police called and trespassed the man from the victim’s home.

A Renton woman complained of numerous unwanted phone calls from a restricted phone number Oct. 27. The 25-year-old victim said she has been receiving calls for about two months and the frequency intensified in October when she received 20 or more calls in a week before calling police. She said when she answers the phone the

A resident found a shotgun sitting up against a wall at an apartment complex Oct. 30. An anonymous caller reported a shotgun propped up against the wall in the hallway of an apartment complex on Stevens Avenue. Police found a gun case on the ground. The area surrounding it appeared to be

covered in drywall debris. The officer then found the shotgun, which was not loaded, took possession and secured it.

Man, woman steal cans of beer A Seattle woman and Kent man were cited for theft Oct. 29. The 50-year-old woman and 49-year-old man entered the downtown Safeway, stole an undetermined amount of beer and left. Police tracked them down and found that the man was driving with a suspended license. They searched the two and found two cans of 211 Steele Reserve, valued at $2.89 each. The woman was cited for third-degree theft, while the man was cited for driving with a suspended license.

Attempted purse snatch in apartment parking lot A man tried to steal a woman’s purse while she was outside her apartment Oct. 28. The 40-year-old woman was in the parking lot of her apartment complex on Fifth Place when a man drove up alongside her and grabbed her purse. The purse strap caught on the woman’s arm and the man drove off. Police were unable to find the man and have no other witnesses.

Families help build homes [HABITAT from page 1]

The family had been applying with Habitat for Humanity in Seattle for more than 10 years without any success. One of their neighbors suggested they go to East King County and try. “Finally I was selected,” Hassen said. “It was unbelievable. I didn’t even believe it until I moved in.” The Hassen family was selected through what Habitat executive director Tom Granger called a “very rigorous process.” Once the families are picked, they have to fit the necessary three kinds of need. First, they need to be below the 50th percentile of area median income. Second, they need to be currently living in substandard housing. Finally, they “Finally I was have to be willing to partner with selected. It was Habitat presently and in the future. unbelievable. I “They must be willing to partner didn’t believe it and that continues after they get the until I moved in.” home,” Granger said. “We expect the Yesihak Hassen, who families to be great representatives has moved into the new for the Habitat mission.” Habitat for Humanity The families have to stay in the housing in east Renton house for at least a year, and also they must belong to the homeowner’s association, and pay dues. That helps set up a reserve for paying any major repairs that might come up. Granger said the selection process usually takes a few months, then the families are notified and they begin putting in their 500 hours of sweat equity in the home during construction. Of the 500 hours of work, 400 must be in construction. “They’re out there literally building the homes,” Granger said. For Hassen, it wasn’t just about the work. It was about learning his new home, inside and out. “I feel like I know every corner now,” he said. “Now I feel like if I see something wrong, I’m going to fix it.” Hassen and his family live in the Habitat for Humanity La Fortuna neighborhood in Renton. Ground broke on the 41 townhouses in June 2010. Construction was completed on the first six in October. The next five will be completed by May 2013. After all the financial troubles this site had run into with

the economy taking a downturn in the early stages of planning, Granger said it means a lot to have the first building done. “It’s very symbolic,” he said. “It’s a symbol of the success of the efforts of the community, and everybody pulling together to decide that through all the challenges that the best outcome was for Habitat to be able to build affordable housing on that site.” Around 90 percent of labor on Habitat for Humanity homes comes from volunteers. If you’re interested in volunteering, email volunteer@habitatekc.org. “The people who volunteer and helped put this together are amazing,” he said.

Honey Dew helps break stacking record Honey Dew Elementary School’s students can now say they helped break a world record. On Nov. 15 402 of them stacked plastic cups as part of the worldwide “Stack It Up,” an effort to break the cupstacking record in the Guinness World Book of Records. Those efforts paid off, with more than 450,000 participants worldwide (and growing), breaking the previous record of 412,259. And in doing so they worked on their hand-eye coordination and challenged their left brains and right brains in a fast-paced exercise that quickly cycled the students through in big groups at the school’s gym in 2 1/2 hours. Some students will also move on to compete in a cupstacking event at Auburn High School in March.

The consent decree is a legal settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice and EPA that ensures the County’s current CSO control plan developed to meet the state Department of Ecology’s requirements is implemented and completed. The CSO control plan was recently updated by the King County Council in September 2012. “It is good news that the consent decree affirms our existing program while allowing future flexibility to consider new information and technology for CSO control,” said Wastewater Treatment Division Director Pam Elardo. “We are fully engaged in meeting our commitments to clean water and look forward to celebrating the completion of this important program by the end of the next decade.” The consent decree preserves the planning updates approved by the King County Council in September that include expediting Lower Duwamish River area projects and evaluating greater use of Green Stormwater Infrastructure for CSO control.

A long-term pollution control plan will meet state and federal standards by 2030 under King County Executive Dow Constantine’s proposal to enter into a consent decree with the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). “This agreement affirms King County’s commitment to clean water and a healthy environment while synchronizing with other work in the watershed so we get the best value for ratepayers,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. Constantine asked the King County Council for authority to sign a consent decree that will require King County to control its remaining 14 uncontrolled Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) outfalls by 2030 to meet federal Clean Water Act requirements. CSOs occur in older parts of Seattle when small amounts of sewage mixed with stormwater discharge into local water bodies during heavy rains when sewers are full, which prevents backups in homes and businesses. State law already requires King County to limit these overflows to one per year at each outfall by 2030.

Washington in its efforts to discuss the issues and find a resolution. “We were forced to file a lawsuit,” he said. In May 2011 the hospital commission voted 3-2 to approve the alliance, which became effective on June 30, 2011, following the approval of the UW Medicine board and the University of Washington Board of Trustees. The alliance’s 13 trustees, who include the five hospital district commissioners, oversee the medical operations of Valley Medical. The hospital commission is responsible for overseeing the public assets of the hospital and the property taxes that support it. However, the hospital commission majority changed with the election of Joos in the 2011 general election to replace Don Jacobson on the board. Joos, along with commissioners Anthony Hemstad and Dr. Aaron Heide, voted to pursue the lawsuit against UW Medicine. Heide and Hemstad voted against forming the alliance, which had undergone months of legal review and public discussion. The legal team for UW Medicine filed the university’s response on Thursday, Nov. 15, pointing out that two state statutes authorize such strategic alliances and the sharing of responsibilities was “carefully structured” in the agreement. “In this lawsuit, the district now seeks to back out of its contractual obligations simply because a current major-

ity of its commissioners has taken a different view of the agreement,” the university’s lawyers wrote in their response. “However, the district is legally bound to comply with the terms of the agreement it signed,” they wrote. The hospital district’s attorney, Bruce Disend, couldn’t be reached for comment. In the hospital district lawsuit, Disend and Philip Talmadge, who also signed the lawsuit, are seeking a declaratory judgment from a judge that entering the strategic alliance was beyond the power of the hospital district commissioners. “The district has standing to bring this action because

The Metropolitan King County Council will hold a public hearing on Monday, Dec. 3, to take testimony on ordinances that are part of the proposed Eastside Rail Corridor agreement. The public hearing on these proposals will be held at the King County Courthouse, Room 1001, at 1:30 p.m. The ordinances authorize the purchase of approximately 19.2 acres on the Eastside Rail Corridor — the former BNSF rail line that stretches from Renton to Woodinville and from Woodinville to Redmond — from the Port of Seattle for the dual uses of recreational trail and public transit. The ordinances would also authorize an agreement with the city of Redmond for the portions of the Eastside Rail Corridor within Redmond city limits, and authorize an agreement with Puget Sound Energy to coordinate utility uses. The county proposes to purchase: • A new 3.6-mile trail easement on the Eastside Rail Corridor north from Woodinville to Brightwater; and • The Port’s remaining fee interest in approximately 15.6 miles of the corridor south of Woodinville. In addition, the County proposes to enter into agreements with Puget Sound Energy and the city of Redmond to coordinate future development of the Eastside Rail Corridor for recreational trail, transit, and utility uses. Copies of the proposed ordinances are available upon request from the Clerk of the King County Council, Room 1200, King County Courthouse, 516 Third Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104, telephone 206-296-1020.

Renton investigation leads to long prison sentences Two men were sentenced to lengthy prison terms in U.S. District Court in Seattle Friday for conspiracy to unlawfully deal in firearms and being felons in possession of firearms in a case that began as an undercover operation in Renton, according to a federal press release. The prison terms were announced by U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. Andre M. Conerly, 26, and Daunte R. Williams, 29, conspired to sell 23 firearms, many of them stolen, to a person working with law enforcement, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Both men have significant criminal Real Estate for Rent King County

history and were prohibited from possessing firearms. Conerly was sentenced to 96 months in prison and Williams was sentenced to 78 months in prison. At the sentencing U.S. District Judge Richard A. Jones said the defendants were involved in the sale of “extremely dangerous weapons, weapons designed to kill and kill a lot of people,” according to the press release. According to records filed in the case, in January the Seattle Police Department Gang Unit, the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) began

an undercover investigation of a group of men selling guns in the Renton area, according to the press release. Conerly was the principal actor in this group, according to the press release, making frequent contact with the buyer, coordinating the firearms transactions for himself and a number of his co-defendants. In January and February Conerly and others in his group sold the person working with law enforcement a variety of firearms including an assault rifle, a sawed off shotgun, a semi-automatic pistol, and a high powered rifle with a silencer.

“One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Until that number is zero, we will continue the fight to eradicate this terrible disease,” says Sherry Kuzan, RN, Manager, The Breast Center at Valley Medical Center. “Mammograms are key to early detection, and for women who are high-risk it’s critical. The money raised at Pink the Rink will ensure that 100 women will not have to wonder and worry about their breast health. We can’t thank the community enough for coming out and showing their support.” 1 in 8 Women will be Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Breast cancer is easiest to cure when it’s detected early. Have you had your annual mammogram? If not, don’t delay! Call The Breast Center at Valley Medical Center today! 425.656.5588

Thank you to our generous Pink the Rink partners for helping us “stick it to breast cancer”!

One hundred high-risk women in need will receive mammograms thanks to a partnership between Valley Medical Center’s GLOW program and The Seattle Thunderbirds hockey team. Now in its second year, “Pink the Rink” raised $15,000 for Valley’s Breast Center to provide life saving mammograms and breast education for disadvantaged women.
