CASA needs advocates to help kids in dire straits By TRACEY COMPTON firstname.lastname@example.org
Hearing is Friday on UW alliance By DEAN A. RADFORD email@example.com
A King County Superior Court judge will hear oral arguments Friday in a lawsuit that could throw into doubt the strategic alliance between Valley Medical Center and UW Medicine. Judge Michael Hayden already has written briefs in hand from lawyers for both sides. Whether he will issue his ruling Friday is uncertain. The hearing Friday is at 10 a.m. in courtroom E-863 of the King County Courthouse in downtown Seattle. In May 2011 the commission for Public Hospital District No. 1 voted 3-2 to approve the alliance, which became effective on June 30, 2011, following the approval of the UW Medicine board and the Uni-
versity of Washington Board of Trustees. But after the election of Dr. Paul Joos to the commission, the new majority challenged the alliance. Under the strategic alliance, the board is responsible for overseeing the public side of the medical center, including taxes and the buildings and property. The day-today medical operations are overseen by a 13-member Board of Trustees. The hospital district’s lawsuit maintains that the elected district commissioners could not delegate their legislative responsibilities for a public institution to unelected decision makers. The lawsuit, according to a recent court filing by the commission’s attorneys, “has been initiated by reform-minded commissioners seeking to halt the raid on taxpayer funds by the district’s adminis-

trators.” Rich Roodman, Valley Medical Center’s CEO, was one of the chief architects of the alliance. “I would say that the public hospital district and its staff and ultimately its commissioners did appropriate due diligence in a very public way and achieved a remarkably well-thought-out and legally grounded affiliation with the University of Washington,” he said. The University of Washington, too, was represented by its own counsel and the state Attorney General’s Office, he said. The result of that vetting, he said, is that all the governing boards approved the alliance. Attorneys for the University of Washington wrote that the agreement “is the result of democracy in action.”

They represent the voices of children who find themselves in dire situations. In court, they speak for children of drugand alcohol-addicted parents or children living in volatile living situations. They are court-appointed special advocates, or CASA volunteers, and their program serves about 1,000 kids in the county. But with only 350 active volunteers, there is a great need to serve even more children. CASA will recruit volunteers at an open house Friday (Dec. 28) in Seattle, hosted by the King County Superior Court, Family Law CASA and Washington State CASA. If accepted to the program, new volunteers will get training on Jan. 18, also in Seattle. There are about 250 kids who need CASA volunteers in the county, said Lisa Petersen. She is a program manager for the King County Superior Court CASA Dependency Program. That program serves juvenile court cases

shocked. Sad. Afraid. And they don’t know where to turn. There is an increasing number of youth living on our streets. If agencies don’t get to them quickly, these kids can fall prey to any number of predators or dangerous situations. And our growing immigrant population in South King County is struggling to bridge the gap between cultures, putting their own youth at risk of joining gangs. At times, society’s problems may seem overwhelming , even hopeless. But talk with someone like Rich Brooks, executive director at Renton Area Youth & Family Services, and your attitude may change. He has directed his staff to get out of the offices and go meet with homeless kids where they hang out. According to Brooks, “We can no longer expect these kids to come to us. We have to go to them, even if it’s under a bridge.” And, they do. There are so many organizations reaching out and providing lifelines for some of the most

vulnerable among us. What they do is amazing and incredibly hopeful. As part of our effort to address the most pressing needs in our community, the Renton Community Foundation thought a monthly column might help to bridge the communication gap. It will educate, inform and hopefully ignite people’s interest. We will reach out to local nonprofit agencies, service clubs and donors to highlight not only the growing need for services, but the exceptional organizations and partnerships doing the work. We will delve down to find the compelling stories and the important facts, the ones that just might move you or someone you know to get involved. After all, this is all about “Renton For Good, For Ever.” Stay tuned.

Anticavity Tip: Water consumption is the most effective way to slow cavity progression in children because of its natural ability to reduce intraoral acidity and cleanse the mouth. 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. Example: 28 pound child = 14 ounces or 2 cups; 46 pound child = 23 ounces or 3 cups.

few. For instance, did you know that 1 in 4 children in Washington don’t have enough to eat? Or that Washington state is one of the 16 “most hungry” states in the U.S.? Did you know that many homeless families are forced to live in their cars right here in Renton? We all know that people are suffering across this nation. We drive by them on the street corner. We see them in the parks. We hear about them on the news. But do we really understand their plight and how we might make a difference? Do we care enough to try? Here are a few realities to consider. The number of middle-class families entering the “system” is increasing. These are folks who had a job yesterday. They had a home and a sense of dignity. Now, they may have nothing. They are For Good, For Ever
Approximately 22 communities in Washington state are fortunate enough to have a community foundation. Renton is one of those. Community foundations are one of the fastest-growing philanthropic entities in the country. Their motto is, “For Good, For Ever.” That’s because community foundations were created to encourage donors to establish permanent charitable funds to benefit a broad array of community needs now and long into the future. Last year, the Renton Community Foundation (RCF) decided to add community leadership to its charter and embark on a journey to learn about homelessness, hunger and at-risk youth in the Renton area. The goal was to find a gap that wasn’ being addressed and see if we could help fill it. We learned a great deal. First and foremost, there is extraordinary work being done by experienced and caring professionals. But the need is growing, and resources are

Siblings argue over bill for cat-sitting By TRACEY COMPTON firstname.lastname@example.org
A 55-year-old Everett woman reported to police that her brother harassed her after a dispute over her cats on Nov. 18. The woman told police that her brother agreed to watch her three cats while she was away for six months. She returned to get the cats from his residence in Renton and they had a disagreement about how much money she should pay him. So, her 56-yearold brother only gave her two of the cats. The woman left and talked to her brother again on the phone about the money and agreed on an amount. Then the woman returned to her brother’s residence to collect the third cat, which she insisted was her cat. Again, the woman’s brother refused
to give her the This week’s… third cat. As she was walking to her car, the man yelled, “Don’t come back or I’ll shoot you.” Police confronted the man at his home and advised him on his choice of words in the future. The brother requested that his sister be trespassed from his premises and the sister requested a no-contact order against her brother. CRIME
Shoplifters steal ‘gifts’ A 34-year-old Tukwila woman and a 17-year-old Seattle girl were cited for theft on Nov. 18 after attempting to steal from the Renton Walmart. A witness observed the two conceal wallets and a bag of makeup on them, more than $100 worth of items. The women attempted to leave the store without paying for anything.
When the two were confronted, they told police they stole the items to give away as gifts. The 34-year-old was cited for theft and released. The teenager was discovered to be a missing juvenile from Federal Way. She was released to her mother.

Recycling bins entered An employee at a Renton non-profit that recycles unwanted items called police to report suspicious activity at the organization. The man came to work to discover someone had opened the company’s recycle bins during the weekend. The bins contain various kinds of metals and other recyclable material. The employee was unsure whether anything was taken or if the bins were damaged. Tampering with the recycle bins has become more of a problem for the company, the worker reported.
The following reports were compiled based on City of Renton Police reports.

“We are recruiting for diversity because we really want to make sure the volunteers reflect the children we serve. “ Lisa Petersen, CASA Dependency Program
Blood donation: giving someone a chance at life Do you remember your first day of school, the first time you drove a car, your first kiss, your first job, the birth of your first child? How about, the first time you gave blood? I remember my first time. My friend was laying on the bed, blood slowly dripping out of her vein, when she noticed out of the corner of her eye someone being pushed in a wheelchair with their head on their chest. She was so impressed that someone with disabilities was able to donate blood. And I was so embarrassed to tell her it was me and that I had fainted. In the early days I experienced this discomfort often, but it never deterred me. My career in giving blood started at my work, where Boeing allows the Puget Sound Blood Mobile to come to the workplace on a regular basis (every eight weeks). Boeing management has always taken this community service seriously and in the early days even supported friendly competitions between organizations to see who could give the most. Overall, Boeing has 9,500 participants in the region and the various Renton plant sites account for 1,200 Boeing workers donating regularly each year. And let’s not overlook that other hot pocket for donations in Renton – the high school teenagers who register 450 donors per year, of which half or more are first-time donors. When I lay at the blood bank giving blood, I can’t help but notice the posters on the wall
FYI How to donate blood To get more information on blood donations, check out the Puget Sound Blood Bank website: psbc.org. To see if you qualify to give blood, highlight “programs,” then “blood.” The nearest Puget Sound Blood Center is located at: 130 Andover Park E. Tukwila 98188 206-241-6300 promoting “Imagine Saving a Life.” “But who’s life?” I often wondered. How uplifting it would be to meet them and see the transformation in their lives. But I never have.
That is until my brother-in-law was diagnosed with fourth-stage leukemia. Although he lived in another state, we were in constant touch with him by phone. The tone of his voice indicated how weak he was and the medical reports were sounding pretty dire. One day the phone rang and a strong, upbeat voice said hello. I asked, “Who is this?” It was my brother-in-law and he was so excited. “What happened”, I asked? It turned out they completely removed all of his blood and replaced it with whole blood. He couldn’t say enough thanks to the “guys” who donated this healthy blood. And, I couldn’t help myself by saying, “and the girls.” He paused and realized that blood knows no sex. He wasn’t cured, but for a short time his life [ more DONATE page 7 ]
Everyone has role in preventing underage drinking The recent deaths of three Washington teens — a 14-yearold Bellingham girl, a 17-year-old boy in Shoreline, and an 18-yearold Washington State University student — remind us just how dangerous alcohol is for minors. As parents and co-chairs of the Washington State Coalition to Reduce Underage Drinking, our hearts go out to the families and friends who are suffering these terrible losses. Before we lose another child, grandchild, student, and friend, let’s ask ourselves what we as adults are doing to encourage or discourage underage drinking. Parents matter Parents are the No. 1 influence on their children’s decisions about alcohol. Although their friends and the media also play a role, studies consistently show that parents are the key, and kids pay attention to
“Have you ever donated blood?”
● QUOTE OF NOTE:
Question of the week:

Michael Langer, left and Sharon Foster
what they say and do. Opportunities and pressure to drink (especially during holidays and other times for celebrating) are constant in their young lives. The most important steps parents can take are to lock up their alcohol, never provide it to minors, continue guiding healthy choices with your teens and college students, and give them the facts: • Alcohol kills more kids than tobacco and illegal drugs combined – 5,000 youth under 21 die each year from underage-drinking related injuries. • One in five 10th graders will
binge drink (five or more drinks in a row) in the next two weeks. • Alcohol causes damage to the developing teen brain, putting them at greater risk for learning problems and addiction. Communities matter We are concerned about youth access to alcohol. Recent news reports strongly suggest that stolen liquor is making its way into the hands of teens. Have you wondered what you can do to help create a healthier place for kids to grow up? Each of us has the power to reduce youth exposure to alcohol and its advertising by: • Showing our children that we can socialize and have fun without alcohol, setting clear rules against underage drinking, and never providing alcohol to those under 21. • Asking store owners to remove alcohol ads in windows and keep
beer away from candy, toys, pop, other kid-friendly items and the store entrance. • Work with fair boards and community festival coordinators to minimize or eliminate youth exposure to alcohol advertising and promotion. • Making it harder for youth to get alcohol, and letting adults know it’s not ok to give it to teens. Preventing underage drinking tragedies is up to all of us. Find out how to join others in your community to reduce underage drinking, and get tips for talking with youth, at www.StartTalkingNow.org. Michael Langer and Sharon Foster co-chair the Washington State Coalition to Reduce Underage Drinking. Langer administers drug prevention programs at the state Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery. Foster is the chair of the Washington State Liquor Control Board.

Yes, it can happen to you
More times than they want to believe, it does. I wish everyone would ask themselves if driving impaired is worth the risk – risk including death or disability of themselves, a loved one and/or an innocent stranger; possible jail time if convicted; living with the knowledge that they took a life or caused pain and suffering of victims or loved ones. Unfortunately, some do not think about the consequences until it is too late. On behalf of the members of the Renton Fire & Emergency Services Department, I’d like to wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
Over the years I have seen the impacts of driving impaired – not only on the driver but also on the victims and families involved. Sometimes it is almost unbearable to see the innocent devastated by the death or disability caused by another person getting behind the wheel of an automobile while impaired by the influence of alcohol or drugs. I’m sure any emergency responder will tell you there are incidents, whether recent or from years ago, still etched in their minds that sometimes haunt and sadden them. Often people don’t believe their actions will cause an incident where harm will come to themselves or others. They declare, “That will never happen to me!”
Mark Peterson is chief of Renton Fire and Emergency Services Department.

the bond between humans, that which makes us blood brothers and sisters, will be lost. If you are currently a blood donor, thank you for your generosity and sacrifice. If you would like to be a first-time donor and would like a “blood buddy” to go with you and walk you through the process, then please send me an email. January is National Blood Donor month. A new year would be a great time to experience a new first – giving blood and, hopefully, not needing it.
improved. I know the slogan, “Save a Life,” is a bit of a stretch. Truthfully, we don’t save everyone, but we do give them a chance – either a chance for recovery or a little more precious time to mend some bridges, resolve some issues, spend more time with family, experience new things or grow spiritually. So, finally after all these years, I felt the indescribable joy and hope that people and families feel when someone is given the gift of blood by a fellow human being. Perhaps, in time, the scientific world will find a replacement for whole blood. Unfortunately,

Diverse advocates especially needed where Child Protective Services has removed a child from a family based on abuse or neglect. Family Law CASA serves about 140 to 150 kids a year in divorce, paternity, or non-parental custody cases. Dependency cases can run about a year to two years, while Family Law cases last about a year or less. “It’s really important to us,” Petersen said of increasing volunteers. “Specifically, we are recruiting for diversity because we really want to make sure the volunteers reflect the children we serve.” While 24 percent of the children CASA serves are African American, only about 9 percent of their volunteers are also African American. Gwen Dupree, a CASA Dependency volunteer for about seven years, agrees that being of the same racial and cultural background does help family members identify
with volunteers during difficult times. But, she’s heard lots of stories where someone of a different race helped people get back on track too. “It’s always good to bring something to the table that might be the key for this particular family,” said Dupree. Retired from the Kent School District having served as a principal and the assistant superintendent, Dupree found a natural fit volunteering for CASA. As a volunteer, she spends her time communicating with the children and parents in her cases, relatives, attorneys, social workers, medical providers, school staff and any other significant players. Family Law volunteers are slightly different, not meeting with the children involved in the cases as much. The amount of time spent on each case varies on the makeup of the family, Dupree said. As information is collected by volunteers,

it is reported to a judge. Initially it can require a lot of time and it’s hard work, Dupree said, but she enjoys it. “The more you get into it and see the need, and there is such a high need in the CASA program for volunteers, you help out,” she said. Dupree calls the CASA supervisors “excellent” for bouncing ideas off of and providing support. Volunteers are needed from many diverse groups and all walks of life. About 5 percent of the children in the CASA Dependency program have Latin heritage, while only 2 percent of the volunteers are also from the same background. Also, 4 percent of the children are Asian, yet only 1 percent of the volunteers are Asian. “You have to step up and make your donations and let them fall where they may,” said volunteer Bud Ray. “Somebody will benefit from your efforts.” Ray has been a CASA volunteer for 16 years, along with his wife Jean, who is a long-time volunteer. He feels that racism and bigotry based on race and religion or the fact that people are poor play a lot into
people’s circumstances. “I grew up in a black environment and I know and can understand what that feels like,” he said. “What bothers me the most is that there aren’t that many black people in the program.” Ray comes from a military background and is retired from Equal Employment Opportunity Commission work. He has seen the results when kids get abused and wind up in the military, he said. “To see a kid grow up without a lot of handicaps, without a lot of stuff put on them,” that’s the most rewarding aspect of the program, he said. “This is definitely the way to go if you’re really going to go out there and make a difference,” Ray said.

An eight-month investigation conducted by the King County Sheriff ’s Office resulted in the seizure on Dec. 19 of narcotics, guns, money and the arrest of eight people for trafficking narcotics, including at two locations in Renton, according to the Sheriff ’s Office. The seizures in Renton occurred at a storage unit in the 3600 block of East Valley Road and a residence in the 17300 block of 121 Lane. Seven of the eight adults were family members; six children were placed in CPS custody, according to Sgt. Cindi West, a spokeswoman for the King County Sheriff ’s Office. Seized were:

eration. On Wednesday the King County Sheriff ’s Office served search warrants on six locations, which included two residences in Burien and a house in Federal Way. The suspects are all from Mexico, according to West. “We believe the ammo that we found was packaged to ship to Mexico,” said the lead detective, who wasn’t identified. “ It had been wrapped in multiple layers of tin foil and dryer sheets (like Bounce) and multiple layers of cellophane. They do this cause they think the dryer sheets will throw off the dogs and the tin foil will beat an X-ray machine.”

Uptempo, the beat for Liberty girls By ADAM McFADDEN firstname.lastname@example.org
After finishing one game short of state last season, the Liberty girls basketball team is ready for another push. “I’m excited about this year,” said coach Randy Leifer. “We’re a little quicker, a little smaller than we’ve been in the past.” Returning starters are senior forward Delane Agnew and junior point guard Sierra Carlson. Carlson scored 8.2 points per game and Agnew added 6.2 last season. Agnew is the team’s only senior. The Patriots’ leading scorer and rebounder from a year ago, Aspen Winegar, graduated, and the team is lacking size. “It will be a challenge to rebound with some bigger teams,” Leifer said. “Teams with a lot of size will create some matchup problems for us inside.” Leifer said the Patriots will simply have to be more aggressive to offset the size disadvantage. Other key returners are sophomore forward Avery Granberg, junior forward Alicia Abraham, junior forward Ashlan Applegate, junior post Adele Payant and junior point guard Tara Johnson. Abraham (3.4 points per game), Applegate (2.8), Payant (1.8) and Johnson (1.2) all played strong off the bench last season. Applegate is the team’s leading returning rebounder at 3.7 per game. Impact newcomers are sophomore guard Cherelle Demps, sophomore guard Danielle Demps, junior forward Sarah Bliesner and sophomore guard Devin Anderson. With a deep roster of talented players, Leifer was able to have several players be on the floor for significant minutes last season. He said this year’s team is even deeper. “We’re going to try to play more uptempo to take advantage of that,” he said. “We can keep our players fresh and wear other teams down.”
