Thieves ‘Win or lose, everybody has a smile’ Federal Way Public Schools target offer students with disabilities a chance to get out and play Marine Hills By CASEY OLSON

Mirror staff reports

Federal Way police are warning citizens about a series of residential burglaries and mail thefts in the Marine Hills neighborhood. The majority of these incidents occurred between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. weekdays from Jan. 1 to Jan. 24, police said. Located off Dash Point Road near Redondo, Marine Hills has a crime prevention group that utilizes the Safe City network to communicate online to alert police and other residents. Officers have patrolled the neighborhood and have identified possible suspects and suspicious vehicles, according to police.

• At 10:59 a.m. Jan. 2 in the 800 block of South Marine Hills Way, an attempted burglary was reported on a vacant home. The suspect was a white female with dark hair, about 24 years old, driving a green 1999 Kia Spectra. The suspect was accompanied by a white male passenger, about age 50, who had a goatee and was balding. • At 8:48 p.m. Jan. 5 in the 28000 block of 7th Avenue South, there was [ more THIEVES, page 25 ]

The atmosphere was electric inside the gym at Saghalie Middle School on Wednesday night. The players on four basketball teams chomped at the bit to get on the court. The fans in the bleachers were ready to watch, and the entire Decatur High School cheerleading squad was in full regalia, setting the mood. Getting excited to watch Decatur play a basketball game is nothing new in Federal Way. The school has always been known as being basketball crazy. The Gators’ boys basketball program has qualified for the past six state tournaments and 13 overall. But these weren’t your “normal” Decatur basketball players on the court Wednesday night. The 18 teenagers were part of the school’s Special Olympics Unified basketball program. Teri Robbins and Chase Ralphs are building another basketball dynasty at Decatur. The mother-son combination coaches Decatur’s two Unified basketball teams, which includes the defending state champions. Decatur rolled to the title in the Seniors Unified Division during the 2012 Special Olympics Winter Games in Wenatchee last March. Decatur dominated the Puyallup High School Vikings in the state title game, 64-34, and the current Gators are a combined 10-0 this season and seem primed for a repeat. But state titles aren’t the most important thing, according to Robbins, who also works as a para-educator at Decatur. “Win or lose, everybody has a smile on their face,” she said. That’s always been the mantra for the Special Olympics. However, the Unified Sports arm is a little bit different. The teams join people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. [ more UNIFIED, page 19 ]

Abandoned as a baby, local woman finds long-lost mother in Ethiopia By ANDY HOBBS

As a 5-month-old baby, Lydia Assefa-Dawson lost her legs and her family. The Federal Way woman was born in a remote village in Ethiopia where families farmed the land and lived in grass huts. Her mother, then age 13, suffered a seizure while cooking at an open fire — and accidentally dropped baby Lydia into the flames. The family sold an ox to pay for transportation to the nearest hospital. The trip took five days. Doctors amputated baby Lydia’s infected legs. Her parents made a difficult decision to leave their daughter behind and return to the farm. Lydia spent four years in the hospital. She was raised by American missionaries who taught her English. She learned to crawl and survive. A photo in the Saturday Evening Post led to a series of events that changed her life. In response to the story, U.S. readers sent Lydia a pair of prosthetic legs, a rarity in rural Africa. Women from a New Jersey church helped send Lydia to a boarding school, then to college in the U.S. Over the years, the growing bones in her legs meant more amputations until she reached age 15. But the real pain that outlasted those surgeries was the painful mystery of her mother.

Upon reaching adulthood, Lydia still had no clues or information on her mother’s whereabouts. However, a chance encounter opened a door: a cousin from Ethiopia confirmed that her mother was alive. In 2000, Lydia and her husband, Troy Dawson, boarded a plane to Ethiopia. After two fruitless weeks and nearly giving up on the quest, she and her mother finally reunited in a grass hut deep in the countryside. The news show “20/20” captured the moment when Lydia and her mother, Asha, embraced for the first time in 38 years. There were tears and awkward moments between the two strangers, but also an uncanny resemblance between mother and child. Lydia gave her mother $500, a small fortune in the eyes of the villagers. She also learned that Asha, age 50 at the reunion, had a total of 12 children, but only four survived — including Lydia, a brother and two sisters. Less than 24 hours later, Lydia left Ethiopia. She and Troy soon returned with their three boys (Christian, Joshua and Caleb) for another family visit. Today, Lydia reports that her mother is alive and well. Her brother now has a cellphone, which helps everyone stay in contact. Lydia, now a social worker for the King County Housing Authority, has reflected on how life might have

Watch for nightly lane closures on I-5 Mirror staff reports

Crews will close several lanes of northbound I-5 for nightly pavement repairs between Federal Way and Kent. From 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the week of Feb. 4, crews will close up to three out of five lanes from South 308th Street to South 260th Street. The crews have finished concrete panel replacement work and will grind down three miles of rutted concrete in the northbound direction of I-5, according to the Washington State Depart-

ment of Transportation (WSDOT). The work is expected to last through the spring. The end result will be a smoother and quieter ride for all drivers, WSDOT reports. The $6.4 million project, which began in April 2012, includes a new guardrail, high-visibility striping and more reflective signs. According to WSDOT, Interstate 5 through King County is nearly 50 years old and is used by more than 250,000 cars, trucks, semi-trucks, buses, and oversized vehicles every day. Roads that are in good shape last longer and experience fewer collisions, which means fewer unexpected lane closures, according to WSDOT.

Lydia Assefa-Dawson shared her story of survival at the Federal Way Kiwanis Club meeting Jan. 30 at Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club. ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror turned out if she still had her legs. She would have remained in the Ethiopian village, she said. Perhaps she would have married young and followed in her mother’s footsteps. One certainty is that she finally found peace after meeting the family she never knew. “My mother didn’t know if I was dead or alive,” Lydia said Jan. 30 while sharing her story with the Federal Way Kiwanis. “That became the driving force to look for my mother.”

Super Bowl parties: Demand for chicken wings hits all-time high By ANDY HOBBS

Super Bowl Sunday is the second highest day of food consumption after Thanksgiving, according to the USDA. The Calorie Control Council reports that Americans eat 30 million pounds of snacks on game day, with the average football fan consuming 1,200 calories and 50 grams of fat just from snacking. The favorite snack, potato chips, will account for 27 billion calories and 1.8 billion grams of fat. The National Chicken Council reports that demand for chicken wings, another Super Bowl party staple, is at an all-time high. About 1.23 billion chicken wings will be consumed during Super Bowl weekend in 2013. In a related note, six out of 10 adults eat their chicken wings with ranch dressing, the council reports. Americans also drink about 325.5 million gallons of beer on Super Bowl Sunday. Beer averages between

100 and 150 calories per serving. However, beers with higher alcohol content such as India Pale Ales are also higher in calories. Holly Martindale and Emily Hall, registered dietitians at St. Joseph’s Outpatient Nutrition Center in Tacoma, suggest more health-conscious snacks for the big game: • Grilled chicken tenders — no breading or skin • White bean turkey chili instead of chili cheese dip • Dips made with roasted red peppers or light sour cream • Real guacamole with baked tortilla chips • Hummus

Sodium, sugar and health pointers People can develop a tolerance to sodium, which is typically found in processed foods. Any food item with a seasoning packet — such as ramen noodles or Hamburger Helper — contains large amounts of sodium that lead to health problems like high blood pressure. The USDA recommends a sodium intake of 2,300 mg or less per day. That’s about 1 teaspoon of salt. For adults ages 51 and older, sodium should be limited to 1,500 mg a day.

The National Chicken Council reports that 1.23 billion chicken wings will be consumed during Super Bowl weekend in 2013, setting an alltime high for demand. COURTESY PHOTO

The recommended amount of sugar per day is 6 teaspoons. However, Americans consume 22 teaspoons of sugar a day from soda, juice, energy drinks, cakes, candies and other sweet treats. “Foods high in sugar tend to be empty calories, not nutrient-dense foods,” Martindale said. Alcohol is a common source of empty calories. Drink alcohol in moderation, which means one drink for women and two drinks for men for the day, the dietitians suggest. By preparing homecooked meals, people can control the fat, salt and sugar content. “The processed and packaged food is more expen-

sive and doesn’t go as far as buying fresh foods,” Martindale said. “We encourage patients to buy whole foods and cook from scratch.” These registered dietitians try to teach basic cooking skills that save money while improving health. And while they work with referred patients, their advice applies to all. “If you can make RiceA-Roni from a box, you can certainly boil rice and beans,” said Hall, noting that the home-cooked version will create more meals with less sodium.

Coalition thanks the city for battling human trafficking The Federal Way Coalition Against Trafficking hosted an allcity forum on Jan. 9 at Federal Way City Hall. About 150 people from the community attended to learn how they could participate in the fight against human trafficking. The coalition would like to thank Mayor Skip Priest, Police Chief Brian Wilson, Nick Lembo, Peter Qualliotine, Women of Vision, Soroptimist of Federal Way, the

Which direction does FW lean? What are Federal Way voters looking for? We may have learned a lot about ourselves this past election cycle. As voters within the 30th Legislative District, we became more Democratic due to redistricting, and we generally agreed with the rest of the state on most issues. But this is a local election year, so how do we think as a city? Statistics still suggest we are Democratic, but we also have a little bit of a conservative streak. We supported Democrats Brad Owen for lieutenant governor, Jim McIntire for treasurer, Troy Kelley for auditor, Peter Goldmark for lands commissioner, Mike Kreidler for insurance commissioner and Maria Cantwell for U.S. Senate by strong majorities. But like the rest of the state, outside Seattle, our votes were a little closer for governor and secretary of state, although we still went for Democrats Jay Inslee at 52 percent and Kathleen Drew at more than 51 percent. Inslee won and Drew lost. We were slightly above the 30th District percentage in voting for Republican Linda Kochmar and Democrat Roger Freeman for the state Legislature, suggesting a comfort level with names and people we had elected before. We also maintained our political balance as we replaced a Republican (Katrina Asay) with a Democrat (Freeman), and a Democrat seat vacated by Mark Miloscia was won by a Republican (Kochmar). Our Democratic incumbent State Sen. Tracey Eide will not be on the ballot until 2014. We traditionally support our public schools, even though at times it takes a couple of votes

to convince us. We ended up with 60 percent voting to rebuild Federal Way High School. But we also voted to support charter schools at over 55 percent. This suggests that while we like our schools, we also want to try and improve them. We don’t know if charter schools will do that, and the 5 percent drop-off says we still have questions, but we are willing to try. We apparently don’t trust the Legislature any more than anyone else. We were over 67 percent in favor of retaining the two-thirds requirement of the Legislature to raise taxes. Our conservative side showed in our vote on same-sex marriage. We were against it 51 percent to 49 percent. Given the number of Democrats that we added in the 30th District, this was somewhat of a surprise. But we weren’t all that much different than the district voters outside of Federal Way, who also voted against the measure, although by a slightly closer margin. Our vote to legalize marijuana might suggest that Federal Way voters had a liberal side as more than 53 percent voted yes. However, when compared to our other votes, it seems more likely that rather than liberals, we have many libertarian voters. The swing of votes between same-sex marriage and marijuana might be more reflective of wanting to keep government out of our personal business, rather than a desire to try marijuana. Last fall, with a presidential race, we had a big turnout of more than 75 percent. The turnout for local races this year will be much smaller. Will that affect who wins?

Federal Way Superintendent Rob Neu’s recent “state of the schools” speech contained a weighty observation: “We’re no longer educating kids. We’re raising them.” Some readers reacted in the vein of “I can raise my own children, thank you.” However, the context of the superintendent’s statement demands a closer look. Schools operate under an evolving set of roles and expectations. We entrust schools with our children each day for 13 years or more. We expect schools to help students succeed, and we blame schools when students fail. The rise of divorce and the latch-key generation shifted the responsibilities of educators. Their to-do lists were stretched beyond the standard reading, writing and arithmetic of yesteryear. The catalyst for this change is diversity, a loaded but legitimate buzzword. That said, Federal Way schools are the quintessential example of diversity. Federal Way plays in a different league of diversity compared to the well-heeled demographics of Mercer Island, Bellevue and other top-scoring school districts with established taxpayer bases. Federal Way plays the hand it was dealt. More than half of the district’s population qualifies for free and reduced lunch. Nearly 22,000 students run the gamut of ethnicities and socioeconomic status. More than 100 languages are represented. With a lower cost of living, Federal Way attracts more working families and immigrants, many of whom struggle to find their footing and make ends meet. The student population is more transient as families move in and out of Federal Way. For some families, their next meal is more important than homework. And if not for school and today’s meal programs, those same children would go hungry. Schools often treat the symptoms caused by Federal Way’s social and economic ills, but that’s a conversation for another column. Are the schools literally raising our children like a surrogate parent? Webster’s dictionary defines “raise” as “moving to a higher position” and “to set up the framework.” The dictionary also defines “parent” as “a person who brings up and cares for another.” Lastly, the dictionary defines “educate” as giving “intellectual, moral and social instruction.” Parents accept that responsibility for their children. Schools help get the job done and reinforce the proverb that it takes a village to raise a child.

Justice Council, Advancing Leadership, Paladin Innovators and everyone else who made this event such a big success. We would also like to extend a thank you to the Federal Way Mirror for raising awareness about the forum and the work the coalition has been doing. At the forum, Priest proclaimed Jan. 10 as Human Trafficking Awareness Day, and he further proclaimed January as Human Trafficking Awareness Month. The

mayor declared Federal Way will stand up to fight against human trafficking. Prior to the mayor’s proclamation, Wilson reminded the audience that human trafficking is a global, national and regional problem. Wilson said his department has a strategy to address this issue, but they can’t do it alone. The police work with the local sheriff ’s office and the Innocence Lost Task Force, but they also need people to

report suspected human trafficking, Wilson said. “Can we make a difference?” Wilson asked. “Absolutely. But we need to collaborate and communicate with others.” Many people have the idea that human trafficking is when people are essentially kidnapped and smuggled into new countries, where they are forced to work for little to no compensation. Human trafficking includes such crimes, but the term also encompasses the domestic buying and selling of people using force or [ more LETTERS, page 9 ]


[ ROEGNER from page 8] Even though a majority of our voters lean to the left of center, a majority of our elected leaders lean to the right of center. Though we are a multi-cultural community, only our school board has minority representation. The school district’s boundaries are different than the city. Federal Way used to be a very conservative community. We are slowly changing, as we have a broader array of viewpoints with progressives, moderates, conservatives, libertarians and independents. Watch to see how candidates for office this fall adjust their campaigns.

Teach this Cub Scout about mental illness

Federal Way Coalition Against Trafficking members with city leaders, including the Federal Way City Council and police chief. COURTESY PHOTO

It’s possible that he is a person who is living with mental illness. What a wonderful learning opportunity for young Mr. Tetu. His family, and the Cub Scout organization, have an ideal opportunity to teach young Robert the value of tolerance and acceptance. People who suffer from mental illness are far more likely to be victims than criminals. He is appreciative when offered meals. He has been accepted into the Reach Out shelter and housed at various churches. There are many books available that help all people, including young people, learn more about mental illness. It is my fervent hope that young Mr. Tetu will learn the importance of acceptance, understanding and tolerance. Fear and stigmatization are inappropriate. People who experience mental illness need the generous support of various government and private programs designed to meet their needs. Many are totally incapable of working to support themselves. If our society was providing adequate support for mentally ill folks, the person in question would be housed and fed.

The major misconception is that this is only going on in other countries. But sex trafficking is happening right here in Federal Way. Young girls, often only 13 years old, are courted and made to feel loved by an older man. He wins her over, wears her down, and he eventually persuades her to do him a favor.

SOUND Boeing now producing 737s at record 38 a month By DEAN RADFORD Renton Reporter

About 40 days from now, Boeing will finish building the first 737 that will lead off the historic production rate of 38 737s a

month. The first step was taken Tuesday when Machinists began working on the wing spar of that first 737 at the Boeing’s Renton plant. The spars are the internal supports for a plane’s wing. Next year, Boeing will ramp up 737 production to 42 planes a month, yet another record. “Thirty-eight is a new record for us and next year we go up to 42 and set another record in terms of the the most single-aisle aircraft ever produced on a single production line,” said Beverly Wyse, vice president and general manager of the 737 program.

But it all started when Machinists loaded the spars into an automated machine that assembles the spars. “The first spar load serves as the defining moment for our latest rate break, and the 737 team did it as planned, on schedule,” said Wyse. “We have more hard work ahead of us, but we are well on our way to another successful production rate increase.” Already, the 737 is the world’s most popular airplane, with more than 10,000 sold and 4,000 Next Generation 737s delivered. But coming up fast is the latest variant of the 737, the MAX.

Boeing will test fly its first MAX in 2015 and it will enter service in 2017. Boeing led a media tour Tuesday through the wing-assembly building and the final-assembly building, where 737s get their wings, engines and other essentials.

Bill tackles assault by a deadly disease COURTESY OF THE Kent Reporter

without their consent may be expanded to include any disease that is dangerous or deadly. House Bill 1018, sponsored by Rep. Jim Moeller (D-49th District, Vancouver), amends existing state laws defining assault, replacing the language singling out HIV with a more general definition of communicable disease. Moeller, who is the bill’s sole sponsor, says the original language of the law, which took effect in 1988, reflected attitudes about HIV (the virus that can cause AIDS) that are no longer relevant. “A lot has changed over the

February 1, 2013 [11] [ AROUND THE SOUND from page 10] years regarding HIV,” he said during a public hearing at a House Public Safety Committee meeting Jan. 17. “There was a great deal of fear – unreasonable fear – around HIV. This bill simply removes that stigma,” he said. Other states have already made similar changes to their laws to reflect a modern understanding of HIV, said Moeller, who is one of six openly gay members of the Legislature. Along with eliminating language specifying HIV, the bill changes the legal definition of poison to include fluids infected with a dangerous disease, regardless of how it is transmitted. The amended law would include any illness – including HIV – that, if left untreated, normally results in serious harm or death. There have only been three successfully prosecuted first-degree assault cases under the current law since it went into effect. First-degree assault is a Class A felony, which can carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. The bill also removes an exception for HIV from a law that criminalizes knowingly infecting another person with an STD without his or her consent, a gross misdemeanor that can result in up to one year in prison. The bill has not yet been scheduled for a committee vote.

High school planning for parents and 8th-graders

Advice for guys who want more sex By JASON AND DEBBY COLEMAN

Every high school in Federal Way hosts a High School Planning Night to help eighthgrade students and their parents learn what to expect at high school – and to develop a plan to make the most of their educational opportunities before graduation. Each middle school is assigned to a specific high school for the planning night. Each event runs two hours. Kilo and Totem nights were held Jan. 30 at Thomas Jefferson High School. Other events: • Lakota, Sacajawea, Totem, Nautilus K8 and Woodmont K-8: Feb. 7, 6 p.m. Federal Way High School • Lakota and Saghalie: Feb. 11, 6 p.m., Decatur High School • Illahee and Sequoyah: Feb. 13, 6 p.m., Todd Beamer High School Staff members from both middle and high schools will be on hand, including administrators, counselors, 8th grade advisors, special education teachers, high school special education program specialists, Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers, career and college specialists, and translators.

Federal Way residents

OK guys, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. You’ve given her flowers and chocolates the past several years. Afterward, you’re left scratching your head, wondering why the romantic flame is more like a Bic lighter than a blow torch. If you’re like the majority of guys, your idea of romance is limited to red helium balloons and overpriced flower deliveries, once a year. Trust me when I say that it doesn’t have to be that way. It shouldn’t be that way. Romance is much more than a last-minute purchase of chocolate heart-shaped candies on the way home from work on Feb. 14. In fact, that isn’t romance at all. It’s crazy to think that many men only remember to buy their lover some flowers, candy, or a card once a year…and then only when the calendar tells them to. It’s like Hallmark and Hershey’s invented this special day to boost their profits, and we all take the bait — hook, line and sinker! If you are one of “those” guys who doesn’t know where to begin in the

romance department, then this article is for you. If you’re an average guy (and who wants to be average anyhow?), you may struggle to find the time to make your lover feel special, or you may think it’s impossible to keep her interested in sex as often as you are. The first point can be learned. The second part, well … she will most likely never think of sex as often as you do. But that’s OK, really. If we’re honest with ourselves men, we probably couldn’t keep up with our own sexual appetite either. So how do you keep the romance going throughout the day, and how to you keep your relationship “fresh” and exciting throughout the year? Here are a few tips to help you out in the romance department. 1. Define romance. When a man uses the word “romance” he often thinks of sex, or at least activity that leads to sex. Romance, for a man, is a three-letter word: sex. When a woman uses the word “romance,” she is thinking of roses, wine, small talk, a night without distractions, help with the kids and dishes, etc. Romance, for a woman,

is a four-letter word: time. When I spend time with my wife, it often means more than an expensive gift I can give her. Romance is more of an attitude or an ambiance than an activity. Romance doesn’t necessarily lead to sex, but romance can transform average sex into explosively satisfying sex. 2. Understand the differences between a man and a woman. Wow, as if that is easy to do. Understand that when it comes to sex, you are a microwave and she is an oven. Guys, you and I can be ready for sex with very little notice. We are stimulated through our eyes, ears and touch and can be “ready to go” at a moment’s notice. Punch a few of our buttons and our microwave bodies are stimulated and pulsating. Women, on the other hand, often take more time to warm up to sex, similar to an oven. With a few exceptions, they don’t respond as quickly as men do and their sexual arousal takes time and attention. When you understand this, you’ll invest more time in your relationship. 3. Date night. If you don’t date your wife, you’re missing out on an important part of your relationship. When you were dating, you went out and spent quality time together. You went to dinner, the movies, went shopping, bowling… probably all types of different activities. Whatever your date consisted of, it meant one thing that was more important than anything else: spending time together. If you did all those things together before you got married, why would you stop doing them after the wedding? Just because you now live together and spend “time” together, you need to realize it’s a vastly different type of time spent. Plan a date night, and make it a regular part of your activities. Most women love to dress up. Even with a tight budget you can dress up and go to a nice dinner once in a while and make her feel special. 4. It’s a mindset. I often tell guys that sex begins in the kitchen.

Federal Way residents Jason and Debby Coleman are authors of the book “Discovering Your Amazing Marriage.” COURTESY PHOTO Not literally having sex in the kitchen, although that could be exciting on occasion, but the idea is that for my wife to “warm up” to sex, she likes to think about it all day and she needs me to value her throughout the day. She likes to see and hear things from me throughout the day that demonstrates my love for her. It’s an allday process. Many women need to prepare for sex emotionally over a period of time and often times it’s the little things you do for her that help set the mood. 5. It’s the small things that matter. I recently went away on a two-night business trip. I left a small note and a candy bar on her pillow. The next day, I sent her a Facebook message telling her where I had stashed a small box of chocolates for her. I had planned ahead and had left a small treat for her on both nights. Let me tell you, it wasn’t solely because of those little gifts I left, but when I returned from the business trip, the sex was exhilarating— for both of us! I regularly leave little treats or notes for her and I have no idea when she will find them. Sometimes she doesn’t find them for days, and it usually catches her by surprise when she does. Doing small acts of kindness or leaving small reminders of your love for her will help set the stage for romance and keep her thinking of you throughout the day. Here are a few ideas: • If she works, stop by her workplace and bring her a latte, or surprise her with lunch. • Buy a dozen heliumfilled balloons and stuff them in her car when she’s at work or at the grocery

store. • Hide a few Hershey Kisses in a box of frozen peas in the freezer. • Write “I Love You” on the bathroom mirror with a bar of soap. • Buy her a lottery ticket and attach a note saying “I won the lottery when I married you!” • Write her a hand-written love letter. And mail it to her. When’s the last time you did that? • Do all the housework for a weekend. Make her breakfast in bed and clean the house while she enjoys her coffee. • Set up the coffee pot so it automatically brews her coffee just minutes before her morning alarm wakes her up. • Spend time with her at a craft or trade show connected to one of her hobbies. • Go for a drive at sunset. • Take a walk, holding hands. I could give you a hundred different things that you could do to make her feel special, but this short list should stimulate your ideas. What she wants most of all from you can’t be bought. It’s free but in limited quantities. What she wants is your time. Give her enough of your quality time, and you will be well on your way to 24/7 romance. And who knows, your sex life may get more interesting too.

FW couple joins lawsuit over fatal Oregon tour bus crash By GREG ALLMAIN

Two Federal Way residents, husband and wife Woon-Jae Lee and Jung-Nyeo Lee, have joined a lawsuit over the tour bus crash that killed nine people and injured 38 more in Oregon in December. Jung-Nyeo Lee, the wife, is still recovering in a Portland-area hospital from multiple fractures she received as a result of the crash. Woon-Jae Lee, her husband, is also the personal representative of the estate of his sister, Ae-Ja Kim, who was one of the nine killed. He will be seeking damages as part of the lawsuit against Mi Joo Travel and Tour of Vancouver, B.C. Lee’s brother-in-law, Man-Sum Kim, is currently recovering from two broken legs in a Portland hospital. The Kims had been staying with the Lees while they visited from South Korea. The Dec. 30 crash in Eastern Oregon’s Blue Mountains is considered among the deadliest in the state’s history. A tour bus crashed through a guardrail and rolled down an embankment along an icy Interstate 84. Attorneys Charles Herrmann and John Scholbe amended their initial complaint against Mi Joo Travel to include the company’s president, Edward Kang, as well as the driver of the bus on that fateful night, Haeng-Kyu Hwang. The complaint filed by

the attorneys indicate that they feel that Mi Joo, Kang and Hwang were all negligent and that their actions led to the fatal bus crash. “The deadly combination of driver fatigue, ignored warnings, and excessive speeds in hazardous winter conditions were dictated by management policies established by Defendant Edward Kang that were based upon cost and profit considerations rather than the safety of their passengers,” the complaint alleged. Herrmann noted that the driver was fatigued after working well in excess of the hours allowed by federal regulations. An order by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, revoking the company’s permit, found that “Mi Joo Tour and Travel allowed its driver…to drive far in excess of the maximum hours of service (70 hours)…driver Hwang was at 92 hours when he was involved in a crash resulting in 9 passenger fatalities, and 39 passenger injuries.” The night of the crash, conditions on the roadway were icy and foggy. According to the complaint, eyewitnesses place the speed of the bus at or above 70 mph, well above the posted 55 mph speed limit. Herrmann noted that the type of calamity that fell the passengers of the Mi Joo tour bus is unusual, and that they’re fighting to make sure those left behind are properly compensated. “We are also deeply concerned about the emotional trauma experienced by virtually all of these victims. Few people have ever experienced the psychological trauma created by this degree of violence and resulting carnage.”

She and magnitude of Lena has rousing and fantastic Horne with three performrenditions such as “The ers collectively than to Lady Is A Tramp,” try and heap all of “Just One of Those Federal Way that responsibility on Things” and “Love just one.

For The Mirror


Songbook” — one night only at 8 p.m. Feb. 16. Lena Horne was a groundbreaking performer. The first African–American pin-up girl (during World War II) defied stereotypes during her early career in Hollywood, and became a key public figure in the entertainment world during the Civil Rights movement with a uniquely eclectic mix of music from a wide variety of sources. Unwilling to be limited in any aspect of her life, Lena sang songs that moved her, which included material written by the Beatles, Kris Kristofferson, and Jim Croce. While never far from a big band and coming to popularity performing standards by the likes of Cole Porter, Rodgers and

Hart and other Broadway composers, she recorded rock, blues funk, R & B and some gospel during her stellar career. Horne’s career began in the famed Cotton Club in Harlem where she worked as a dancer. This led to touring as a vocalist with orchestras, and ultimately brought her to Hollywood, where she achieved success portraying herself in many MGM musicals. “Believe In Yourself ” is performed by three women who have been lifelong fans of Horne. Stacie Calkins has played some of the great roles in musical theatre including “Dreamgirls,” “Aida,” “Ragtime,” “The Color Purple,” “Hairspray” and “The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas.” Laurie Clothier is an

established nightclub, concert and musical theatre performer whose career spans over 30 years. “Kiss Me Kate,” “A Chorus Line” and “Grease” are many fan favorites. LaVon Hardison’s theatrical credits range from “The Full Monty,” “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.” The all new tantalizing arrangements and orchestrations created by David Duvall was written specifically for Lena over her career. Dial in to “The Silent Spring” which was written for Lena after the 1963 bombing in Birmingham that killed four African-American girls.

[ ABUSE from page 1] learned that when it comes to the safety of children, “nobody’s toes are too big to step on.” The mother described her family’s traumatic experience at a Jan. 23 symposium sponsored by King County Sexual Assault Resource Center (KCSARC) in Federal Way. Roughly 86 percent of sexual abuse goes unreported, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Most juvenile victims know their perpetrators — typically a relative, a family friend or an acquaintance. At the KCSARC symposium, a couple shared how sexual abuse shook up their church community when they discovered a nephew was molesting their 4-yearold twin daughters. By all accounts, the nephew was considered an upstanding teenager and church member. He played with the couple’s children and mowed their lawn. He was a few merit badges shy of earning Eagle Scout status. While bathing the girls, the mother noticed signs of abuse, and immediately confronted the men in her family. Despite the mother’s job as a Child Protective Services investigator, she had trouble pinpointing the source of abuse until one of the girls came forward. The parents pursued charges.

leaders, counselors and congregants from area churches with a goal of spreading awareness on sexual assault and preventing child abuse. The topic hits home for the faith community. Churches are often the first place sex offenders will go, not necessarily to cause harm, but to rebuild their lives after a conviction. Rev. Marvin Eckfeldt has served on the KCSARC board and was a minister of First Christian Church in Kent for 33 years. Eckfeldt supports strict policies and rules for sex offenders who participate in church life. For example, perpetrators must undergo background checks and supervision while on church property, and are not allowed to interact with children. Background checks are limited, but they are better than nothing, Eckfeldt said. These precautions, coupled with awareness and education, can further protect children while the offenders get their lives on track.

Grooming behavior Common threads ran through the stories of these families whose children suffered sexual abuse. These traumatic incidents shattered the parents’ trust when it came to leaving their children in the company of others. Both the parents and children were groomed by the perpetrators to let down their guard.

Grooming is a process in which a perpetrator gradually gains the victim’s trust, often through harmless interactions that lower inhibitions. The “groomer” often exhibits the following behaviors, according to KCSARC: • Groomers access victims through lies, secrecy and trust. Groomers are often overly helpful, too touchy-feely and extra attentive to children or other vulnerable individuals. • Groomers can be onesided in relationships, such as always giving but never taking. They may violate boundaries of personal space and privacy. • Groomers can seem too charming or too good to be true. They can get aggressive when questioned or confronted about behaviors, and may attempt to form collegial relationship with those who raise questions about their behavior.

Beamer girls snag first-ever SPSL Jefferson’s South basketball championship Neagle is

back with Sounders FC Seattle gives Montreal an international roster slot for Federal Way midfielder By MATT GASCHK

Titans ultra-talented freshman class leads Beamer to 62-45 win over Puyallup Tuesday By CASEY OLSON

For the first time in the history of Todd Beamer High School, the Titans will be able to hang a South Puget Sound League South Division basketball championship banner inside the school’s gym. The Titan girls clinched the school’s first-ever SPSL South title with a very impressive blowout win over fourth-ranked Puyallup Tuesday night on the road, 62-45. The victory moved 10th-ranked Beamer to 16-3 overall and 14-1

in the SPSL South with one game remaining. The Titans have handed Puyallup (17-2) their only two losses on the season. Beamer ends its regular season Friday night against the Federal Way Eagles, who are the only SPSL South team to beat the Titans. The game, at Beamer, will also play host to the Federal Way Public Schools Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, which will take place at halftime. The game was tied at 12-12 before the Titans took total control with a huge effort in the second quarter. Beamer outscored the Vikings 16-4 during the eight minutes to take a commanding 28-16 lead into the locker room at halftime. The Titans were again led by their unbelievable freshman

class. Bria Rice led the way with 20 points, Quinessa Caylao-Do added 13 points and fellow ninthgrader, Nia Alexander, chipped in nine points for Beamer. Junior Megan Huff was also impressive for the Titans, finishing with 18 points, including 14 in the first half. Jefferson — The Raiders were beaten by the Kentlake Falcons Tuesday night, 34-23. The loss drops TJ to 5-13 overall and 4-11 in the SPSL North. The Raiders end their season Friday at home against Tahoma. Decatur — The Gators remained winless on the season with a 54-15 loss to the Enumclaw Hornets Tuesday night. Decatur (0-18 overall, 0-9 SPSL 3A) finishes its season Friday night at home against Auburn Mountainview.

When the 2013 MLS home openers were announced in December, Lamar Neagle circled March 2 as his first opportunity to return home since the Sounders FC traded the Federal Way native to the Montreal Impact during the preseason last year. Neagle, a Thomas Jefferson graduate and Federal Way resident, may be on the field at CenturyLink Field that night, but it won’t be with the Impact. The Sounders FC instead brought Lamar Neagle Neagle back for his third stint with the club in the team’s five-year history in a trade on Monday, sending an international roster slot to Montreal for the 25-year-old midfielder. “It’s amazing. It’s going to be nice to be able to see my family and be around my little sister and everything like that,” Neagle said. “I know the fans are going to enjoy it. They had so much support for me when I left originally … It’s going to be good to hear from them again. I know my family is going to be ecstatic. I can’t imagine what my mom and my grandma are going to say when they find out. And the teammates. I know a lot of guys have changed. In the offseason I came back and I connected with a few of the guys so it’ll be a good homecoming.” [ more neagle page 28 ]

Sidelines: Everything is bigger at Super Bowl

This Super Bowl spread, much like everything else associated with the game, is larger than life.

Casey Olson

Namath and the New York Jets upset the Baltimore Colts. The first two contests were called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game. The name Super Bowl supposedly came from Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt, who took it in part from the then-popular Super Ball kids toy. Super Bowl Sunday, which is now unofficially a national holiday in the U.S., will honestly have nothing to do with the football game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.


Unless you are literally living under a rock, you know that the Super Bowl is taking place Sunday. Super Sunday is the culmination of a long season of watching football and a chance for Americans to gorge themselves on chicken wings, queso dip and Bud Light. It’s perfect. But it wasn’t always like that. The phenomenon that is now the Super Bowl isn’t really that old of a thing. The actual name, Super Bowl, didn’t materialize until 1969 when Joe

Analysts are expecting 115 million viewers to tune in and pretend like they are watching the game, but are really watching the commercials. If those numbers come to fruition, it will be the most-watched television show in history. In fact, eight of the top 10 shows of all time are Super Bowls. The only stragglers are the series finales of M*A*S*H and Cheers. It’s so ridiculously huge that a 30-second commercial Sunday will cost an advertiser $4 million. The Super Bowl is so big that [ more sidelines page 28 ]

Postseason kicks off this weekend around the SPSL By CASEY OLSON

It’s that time of the year. This weekend marks the start of the postseason for most of the winter high school sports. Gymnastics, swimming and diving and wrestling will have competitions running both Friday and Saturday, and the South Puget Sound League boys and girls basketball regular season will come to an end. The 2A/3A/4A Sub-District Gymnastics Meet will take place Saturday at Mount Rainier High School with all four Federal Way schools competing. Jefferson looks like the best of the bunch, led by senior twins Monica and Shelby Church. The Raiders averaged close to 160 points during the regular season. Arian Carpio In the swimming pool, athletes will be after berths to the Class 4A State Swimming and Diving Meet Friday and Saturday. Curtis High School will host the West Central District Meet. Last weekend, Jefferson finished 11th, Federal Way was 12th and Beamer was 13th at the 14-team SPSL 4A Swim and Dive Championships. But a bulk of the action will be on the wrestling mats this weekend. There will be four separate tournaments stretching across the South Puget Sound League. On the boys’ side, Jefferson will travel to Kent-Meridian for the 2013 SPSL North Division Tournament, Beamer and Federal Way will be at Curtis for the SPSL South Tournament and Decatur will travel to Auburn Mountainview Friday and Saturday for the SPSL 3A Sub-District Tournament. The Gators seem to have the best chance at excelling in the postseason. Decatur was ranked in the top-three at the Class 3A level all year and have several individuals who should qualify for the Mat Classic State Tournament. Trysten Dawson (113 pounds), Leviticus Arizpe (120), Isaiah Diggs (138), Brandon Zimmerman (160), Nick Karis (170), Spencer Smith (182), Rowland Gaydosh (195) and Kyle Gleed (285)

are all ranked in the top-10 in their respective weight classes by At the 4A level, Beamer and Federal Way also have wrestlers ranked in the top-10 entering the postseason, including Alex Davidson (106, Federal Way), Brett Dykman (113, Beamer) and Brian Dykman (120, Beamer). On the girls’ side, the sub-regional tournament will also feature the return of a pair of state-title contenders from Beamer. Arian Carpio and Vanessa Dixon were earlier declared ineligible for one year after competing in a tournament in California earlier this month. Both Carpio and Dixon are the top-ranked wrestlers in their respective weight classes, according to Carpio wrestles at 112 pounds and Dixon is a 145-pounder. Carpio won the 114-pound title at the Napa Valley Girls Classic with a perfect 5-0 record and Dixon finished up in second at 146 with a 4-1 record. The girls were suspended after it was determined they violated a Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) rule that says no “school team or individual contestant shall be eligible to represent a school in an athletic contest unless the coach is an employee of the school district in which he/she coaches.” No official Beamer coach accompanied the girls to California. But it was determined after the girls appealed the year suspension by WIAA executive director Mike Colbrese that the girls didn’t compete as Beamer wrestlers, but as members of their club team, Federal Way Spartans. Carpio is not a Federal Way School District employee. However, he said the girls were not representing Beamer and wore their club singlets. The Federal Way High School girls team should also make some noise in the postseason. The Eagles won the SPSL Tournament title midseason and finished third at the massive 37-team Lady Wolf Pack Tournament last weekend, which should be a good indication of the state meet. The Eagles are led by senior Bianca Arizpe, who is the top-ranked 118-pounder in the state.

Tracking the grads: Forbes primed to set games-played record at Eastern Washington Eastern Washington University men’s basketball player Jeffrey Forbes long ago established himself as a complete player who brings intensity and energy to both the offensive and defensive side. Now, as the end of the senior guard’s career draws near, he is not only earning respect for his consistency of playing well on the court, but also for his durability to always stay on it. Currently, Forbes has played in 110 games to rank seventh in school history, and by the end of the season could break Marc Axton’s (2002-05) school record of 119 games played. “It would mean a lot and is a big accomplishment,” said Forbes, who won a state

“Mostly though, it’s going to the gym and getting my workouts in. Lifting weights really keeps you in shape and healthy.” Forbes gives opponents headaches by being a prolific 3-point shooter and an 88 percent free throw shooter. Currently, he is third alltime at Eastern in 3-pointers made (164) and fourth in attempts (434), and is 20 makes and 65 attempts away from the school record.

companies are now releasing teasers of their commercials ahead of game day, like they are Hollywood blockbuster movies or something. In years past, advertisers guarded their commercials for game day with secrecy usually saved for Jason Bourne documents. About half of the 30 Super Bowl advertisers have teasers this year, according to the Associated Press. That number is up from 10 in 2012. The online teaser has been one of the top new trends for Super Bowl commercials in recent years. More evidence about how big the Super Bowl has gotten in recent years can be tracked to the stars performing during halftime of the football game. That might be where things have changed the most during the 47-year history of the Super Bowl. During seven of the first eight Super Bowls, college marching bands actually provided halftime entertainment. Some of those bands were even joined by celebrities during their performances. Who, you might ask? During halftime of Super Bowl VIII in Houston, the University of Texas Band was joined by Judy Mallett (reigning Miss Texas 1973), who played the fiddle. During halftime of Super Bowl IV in 1970, fans were mesmerized by the vocal stylings of Broadway actress Carol Channing, who paid tribute to Mardi Gras. Things didn’t get much better in 1973 when jazz clarinetist, saxophonist and big band leader Woody Herman

It’s a far cry from what goes on at halftime now, which includes the biggest stars in the world. Just look at the acts that have taken the stage in the past 10 years. Acts like U2, Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson (wardrobe malfunction), Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, The Who and Madonna have performed. Aside from commercials and halftime entertainment, here are a few more facts about how big the Super Bowl has gotten: • An estimated 49.3 million cases of beer were sold during last year’s Super Bowl Sunday. • An estimated $10 billion was wagered on the 2012 Super Bowl, and that is just in the legal sense. How much more was bet on Super Bowl boards at your average party? • Pizza Hut, Papa John’s and Domino’s combined to sell roughly 4 million pizzas during the 2012 Super Bowl. It’s the biggest day of the year for pizza sales. • On the Monday following the Super Bowl, on average, 6 percent of the workforce calls out sick and the sale of antacids goes up by nearly 20 percent. • The toilet is flushed more times during halftime of the Super Bowl than at any other time of the year. • The average number of people at any given Super Bowl party is 17. • Americans will spend more than $50 million on food during the four days prior to the Super Bowl.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING THE FORMATION OF THE STEEL LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT The City of Federal Way received a petition to reform the Steel Lake Management District (SLMD), Number 1, and has passed a resolution of intention to do so (13-630). The resolution has set a public hearing to consider putting the formation of the District to a vote of the affected property owners and proceeding with the formation of the District for February 19, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the City of Federal Way Council Chambers at 33325 8th Ave. S., Federal Way, WA. 98003. The nature of the proposed activity to be undertaken by the District will be to continue to provide an organizational structure and funding mechanism that allows for proactive lake management focusing on the protection and enhancement of water quality, recreational use and aesthetic value of Steel Lake from 2014 through 2023. Unallocated funds left in the current Steel Lake LMD (estimated to be $15,000.00 at the end of 2013) will roll over into the reformed LMD. The estimated maximum amount of special assessments that is proposed for the LMD in 2014 is $15,232.00, which will be collected annually to finance the District activities, with the total amount to be collected during the life of the District being $152,320.00. The proposed duration of the District is ten years from the date such District is actually formed by ordinance. The proposed boundaries of the District encompass all properties adjacent to Steel Lake with lake front footage or with deeded lake access. The proposed rate structure is based on equal charges for similar parcels. Single family developed parcels (RS9.6) will be charged $95.00 per year. Vacant parcels (RS9.6) will be charged $33.00 per year. The multi residential property (RM 1800) will be charged $306.00 per year. The Steel Lake Park parcel will be charged $2,279.00 per year. The Department of Fish and Wildlife parcel with a public boat launch will be charged $3,895.00 per year. Please contact Mr. Dan Smith, Surface Water Quality Program Coordinator at (253) 835-2756 or with questions or comments. Printed in the Federal Way Mirror: February 1, 2013 FWM 1976

Glen Jackson hit the biggest shot of his Decatur High School basketball career Tuesday night. Trailing 71-70 inside the Gator Dome to the alwaystough Enumclaw Hornets, Jackson caught an inbounds pass from the baseline and connected on a layup on the left side of the hoop. The basket gave Decatur a stunning 72-71 win over the Hornets at the buzzer and set off a celebration by the Gator student section, which rushed onto the court, mobbing Jackson. The final layup gave Jackson 17 points on the night and improved Decatur to 10-9 overall and 5-4 in the South Puget Sound League 3A Division. The Gators close their regular season Thursday night on the road against first-place Auburn Mountainview. Jason Young finished with a game-high 27 points for the Gators and Kevin Locascio ended up with 24. The trio of Young, Locascio and Jackson tallied 68 of Decatur's 72 points Tuesday. Jefferson — The Raiders clinched their first berth into the West Central District Tournament since 1985 Tuesday with a hardfought, 52-38, victory over winless Kentlake. Jefferson (10-9 overall, 9-6 SPSL North) jumped out to a 29-19 lead in the first half and cruised in the third and fourth quarters on the road. Deonte Anderson led the way with 11 points and Daniel Park and Pekedey Ren both finished with 10 points each. The Raiders currently sit in a tie for fourth place in the North with Mount Rainier with one game remaining. Jefferson will host first place Tahoma Friday night. The top-five teams from the North advance into the postseason. Beamer — ­ The Titans picked up a solid comefrom-behind home victory Tuesday over the Puyallup Vikings, 55-41.

are gifted, but the really good shooters out-work the talented players. Since I’ve been playing basketball I was always coached on shooting techniques and repetition.” He also has scored 954 points in his career -- just 46 from the coveted 1,000-point mark. Not only is he a sharp shooter, but he also prides himself on being a high energy defender. His defensive prowess shows up in the steals column where he is currently eighth all-time in school history with 113 and is only four away from ranking sixth. “You can’t win games without defense,” said Forbes. “My mentality is if I stop my guy we have a better chance of winning. And if everyone stops their guy we have a better chance of winning. I try to set the tone on defense. I like being the hustle player with energy, and let everyone know that if we want to win we have to get it done on defense.” Forbes is glad to be able to accomplish these milestones, but right now he and the team are focused on finishing the season strong and getting into the Big Sky Conference Tournament. His team’s next game is Saturday at home against Montana. “I just try to lead by example,” Forbes said. “I want to do everything the right way and show that what you do off the court affects what you do on the court. I try to be a good student as well, and show that education is important.” Forbes and the Eagles are struggling this season with a 5-15 record, including a 3-7 record in the Big Sky Conference. Eastern still hasn’t won a game on the road this year (0-10). “We did have a lot of bumps and we had to get over them,” Forbes said. “To make us a great team, we just need to play hard, stick together and listen to the coaches. We just have to keep grinding. There will be bumps but it’s about how you respond to them.”

Hale III scores 35 points in win over Seattle University Courtesy

Michael Hale III made the most of his homecoming by scoring a career-high 35 points and that helped the University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) hold off Seattle University, 78-75, Jan. 24 at KeyArena. The victory, the Roadrunners’ first in more than a month, snapped a seven-game losing streak and was the program’s first in Western Athletic Conference play. UTSA (5-14, 1-8 WAC) never trailed and led by as many as 14 points, but it had to hold off a furious rally by the Redhawks (6-12, 1-7 WAC). Hale III, who graduated from Federal Way High School and also played at Decatur through his junior season, was 9-for-18 from the field and 16-of-17 at the free-

Hale III is averaging 16.4 points for the University of Texas-San Antonio. courtesy utsa athletics throw line in topping his previous career-best of 31 set earlier this season against Texas State. He was 8-for-8 at the charity stripe in the final four-and-a-half minutes to help the Roadrunners respond after Seattle had tied the score at 65 with 6:03 left to play. Trailing 58-46, the Redhawks reeled off nine unanswered points to pull to within three (58-55), the closest they had been since the opening minute of the contest. Hale’s 35-point outburst is

tied for the 14th-best individual scoring performance in program history. Kannon Burrage and Hyjii Thomas joined Hale in double figures with 19 and 12, respectively. Burrage rattled off 12 consecutive points over a two-and-a-halfminute span in the opening half to help turn an 11-8 lead into a 23-10 advantage for the visitors. Hale III, who scored six of UTSA’s first seven points, knocked down a 3-pointer that made it 26-12

midway through the half. Hale III is currently second on the team in scoring at 16.4 points a game for the Roadrunners. Hale III is also leading the team in assists (64) and steals (23) and is also averaging 2.5 rebounds a game. After graduating from Federal Way, Hale III went on to play at North Idaho Junior College in Couer d’Alene. He was named a second-team, junior college AllAmerican as a sophomore.
