Toxins found in groundwater; state says there’s no danger DOE official apologizes for lack of information about test results


The state departments of Ecology and Health and The Boeing Co. sank test wells in 2011 to deter-

mine whether a dangerous chemical solvent the Boeing-Auburn plant near Algona used decades ago had escaped the property and seeped into the local groundwater. State officials told the mayors

of Algona, Pacific and Auburn they would release the results last March. But 11 months passed from that promised release date before the DOE informed the City of Algona

and its residents about what those tests had revealed. And when Algona residents found out last month after a local [ more TOXINS page 11 ]

is like, this is it,” Zimmerman said. Students, teachers, administrators and everybody else laughed, happily aware that when the new, three-story, red brick, Auburn High School opens in September 2014 at its site facing East Main Street, nobody will have to shiver any longer in a drafty, 63-year-old building at the mercy of an unreliable, geezer boiler. Zimmerman then went on to define just what “new and improved” will mean to the people who’ll spend their days in the new building. “It means a heated-, -non leaking -structurally-secureand-minimal entrance house of Troy, and that’s what we’re really looking forward to,” Zimmerman said. More than 100 people showed up, among them members of school boards past and present, Auburn High School Student Body President Adam Luk and assorted dignitaries, including members of the Auburn City Council and 47th Legislative District Rep. Mark Hargrove, whose daughter will teach math at the new high school. Also present were Gus Gottschalk, Western Regional President of Lydig Construction, and Guy Overman, the project’s principal architect. Actual work got under way less than 24 hours after officials, golden shovels in hand, tossed the ceremonial dirt. District officials pitched awnings for the ceremony on the ground where the high school’s predecessor was built in 1927. When a 1949 earthquake brought down the district’s junior high – where West Auburn High School is today – the district moved the junior

Partridge began his first term on the City Council in January 2010. He is active regionally as chair of the King County Law, Safety and Justice Committee, and nationally on the committee for Public Safety Crime Prevention. He is also owner of Partridge Insurance. “Four years ago, I chose to prepare myself by learning the business of the City, bringing fresh perspectives, and gaining understanding of its needs. Whether you are a resident or business owner, you should expect to be heard, be safe, and have wellmaintained transportation routes,” Partridge said. Auburn, Partridge said, needs to move forward in a responsible way that does not saddle the next generation with a debt it can’t afford. City Hall, he said, must be intouch with the citizens, exercise fiscal restraint and focus on the people it serves. “I am ready and excited to lead the charge for the City of Auburn,” Partridge said. Partridge said his vision as mayor would be to see Auburn continue to emerge as a destination and not a pass-through. The City, he said, should direct government to be about business, not to be in competition with business. And it should maximize its strengths by enabling private/public partnerships and minimize debt and taxes by managing priorities to seek efficiencies. “I will listen to our citizens, council members, and staff, and make city government empower Auburn to succeed. There is a new day coming in Auburn,” Partridge said. This year, Partridge celebrates 30 years of marriage to his wife, Shirlee. The couple have raised three daughters, all of them Auburn High School graduates.

From left, Auburn School District Superintendent Kip Herren; Auburn High School Principal Richard Zimmerman; Auburn School Board members Carol Seng, Anne Baunach, Janice Nelson, Lisa Connors and Ray Vefik; Vefik's grandson, Tony Aumoeualogo; architect Guy Overman of NACI Architecture; and Gus Gottschalk, Western Regional President of Lydig Construction. Rachel Ciampi, Auburn Reporter high school students over to the high school and double shifted. The community responded by passing the first $1 million high school construction bond in state history. When today’s Auburn High School opened in 1950, the old Auburn school became an annex, or, as it would become known to generations of students, The Annex. It was demolished in 1980.

Let the work begin Over the next year and a half, students and teachers and administrators will have to deal with the challenges construction always brings, including intermittent service disruptions, noises, ground shaking and building debris. Auburn School District Superintendent Kip Herren didn’t seem a bit worried about that. Herren said that the city will soon be able to boast of four modern high schools, all high quality, up-to-date facilities,

where the will of the people, he stressed, not the ZIP code, determines just how good they are. “All of you have had a stake in this great opportunity that is afforded our children, our teachers, our community for years to come,” Herren told the crowd. “I am very proud to be part of an Auburn community that has made our children a priority for generations, ensuring that they have the best possible education for the future.” “Before we know it, the doors will open and the real benefits will commence,” said School Board President Janice Nelson. “Students will have access to classroom technologies, modern science labs, a new commons area for student activities such as after-school clubs and multicultural fairs, and increased safety, thanks to a building that will be under one roof with only two points of entry.” Not much nostalgia for the current high school could be found.

Certainly none from Jana ZipfRosa and Jim Rosa. Their daughter, Caitlan, now 23, recalled sitting in the hallways to eat lunch because the school was so overcrowded. Jim Rosa is president of Public School Employees of Washington in Auburn. “She would tell me stories about sitting in cold, cold, cold classrooms with water dripping down,” Jana said of her daughter. Senior Rylee Lewis recalled many cold days inside, including one of her most memorable days at the school: the day the boiler gasped, wheezed, sputtered and finally went out, belching out a plume of black smoke. “Whatever’s outside, it’s going to be like that inside,” Lewis said of the heating system. Senior Windy Rattanasone fessed to, well, a bit of nostalgia. “I am a little sad, much as it needs to be rebuilt,” she said. District voters approved a $110 million construction bond, casting a record 18,678 yes votes last November.

City tweaks animal control and licensing ordinance By ROBERT WHALE

The City’s Municipal Services Committee on Monday gave Auburn’s animal control and licensing ordinance a second look. “It’s about errors and omissions from the original code that we brought forward in November when we started the animal control and licensing,” said Darcie Hanson, City administrative and business services manager. Perhaps the most significant suggested change would add language requiring proof of a valid, current rabies vaccination prior to the issuance of a pet license. That, said Assistant City Attorney Steven Gross, is about squaring the City’s ordinance with state law. Washington’s Admin-

[ PACIFIC from page 1 ] to Dec. 31, 2011, were up to standards. “The results of our tests disclosed no instances of noncompliance or other matters that are required to be reported under Government Auditing Standards,” the report stated. In addition to auditing the City’s financial statements, the auditor’s office performed an independent accountability audit looking at other activities of the City to ensure they complied with state laws and regulations and the City’s own policies and procedures. Among the areas examined were: utility billing and receipting; hotline concerns reported to the state auditor’s office; review of operations; inter-fund

istrative Code (WAC) requires each local jurisdiction to enforce the rabies shot requirement – cities don’t have to administer the shots – and provides penalties for pet owners who don’t get it done. The first shot is valid for one year, each subsequent shot is valid for three years. “That’s big change, a huge requirement,” said Committee Chairman Bill Peloza. Rabies shot fees vary based on the fee schedule of the veterinary office in which the shots are given. A pet license for unaltered pets is $60, and $30 for altered animals. For altered senior or disabled pets, the fee is $15. There is no fee for service animals, but their owners still must get a license. The reworked ordinance also: • Officially recognizes

MAYOR FIRES CITY CLERK: The turmoil in Pacific City Hall continued Tuesday with Mayor Cy Sun’s firing of City Clerk Patti Kirkpatrick. “Patricia Kirkpatrick did not successfully complete her trial period with the City of Pacific and was released from employment February 26, 2013,” Sun wrote via email. “The Finance Director [Betty Garrison], who is also a certified municipal clerk, will be the interim. I will advertise for a replacement immediately.” Sun added that he didn’t expect any legal action from

transactions; credit card transactions; general disbursements; court activities; and financial condition assessment. Mayor Cy Sun has openly questioned the integrity and accountability of the

the Senior Lifetime Licenses King County had offered before the City of Auburn ended its contract with the county and opened its own animal control and licensing program Jan. 1. Such licenses expire with the animal. • Where City officials last fall had talked about making the licenses expire at the end of each calendar year, the new wording makes the current rolling license expiration official. Because of constraints the City’s finance department has imposed, Hanson said, some veterinarians are pre-purchasing licenses and selling them at their office. Once the veterinarians or the animal shelter sells those licenses, they buy more from Auburn City Hall and report to the City who has bought the licenses. “Our finance department won’t allow me to enable them to take in money on our behalf, off site, at their clinic, and then report to us,” Hanson said.

Disorderly conduct: 7:18 p.m., 221 Auburn Way N. Police contacted a man for trespassing but it was his conducting of himself in a disorderly fashion that got him busted.

On Dec. 17, Sun referred to an unaccounted for $30,000 in an open cash bank account, $70,000 in missing cash and claimed that the City’s books were out of balance to the tune of $10,9 million. “Did somebody steal money and mess up the ‘Books’ so as to hide what they stole,” Sun wrote. “The Council is fully responsible for the City’s money, why weren’t we, the people,

informed about the Out-ofBalance for each year? Are they hiding something.” Although the state audit report did not list any specific allegations, City Councilman Joshua Putnam said the list was “extensive.” “(There were) more than 40 claims of corruption in the City from various sources, newspaper articles and blog postings,” Putnam said. “They investigated all of them,

went over budget on hours and at the end of the day found no corruption, no improper governmental actions.” According to the accountability audit: “In the areas we examined, the City’s internal controls were adequate to safeguard public assets. The City also complied with state laws and regulations and its own policies in the areas we examined.”

Wannabes and all-stars are welcome. Be prepared for repetitious drills and numerous takes, sound instruction and occasional criticism. Anticipate frustrating whiffs at the fastball and ghastly gaffes in the field. Most of all, be ready for plenty of drama on and off the diamond. Marco Angulo – longtime writer, producer and actor – has issued a casting call for baseball players 18 and older to toil and shine on television. He intends to put Kent, Auburn and the Green River Valley on the reality TV show map with his latest, unscripted project. Baseball is the backdrop for “The Cut”, a series that follows the storylines of local players and coaches as they interact on and off the field. The show follows four locally-grown, 15-member baseball teams, each hand-selected by the reality show’s coaches, as they come together to struggle, improve and compete for bragging rights. Tryouts and a casting call begin Sunday afternoon at Big League Edge in north Auburn. The show is designed to combine drama with action, misfits with experienced players. Sort of a “Bad News Bears” meets “The Biggest Loser”. “Like most reality shows, we’re looking to cast real people with real personalities,” said Angulo, who moved to Federal Way after working in the entertainment industry for 25 years in Southern California. “We’re looking for people who have played baseball as well as those who have not.” “We hope to attract regular Joes and pros,” Angulo added. “It’s an opportunity to help guide somebody to a better place by using baseball as a way to get there.” Joining Angulo and Hat Dance Productions on the project is Nicholas Crane

Medicaid expansion: an offer we should not refuse Good health – like education, housing, and economic opportunity – is essential for a strong community. When people can’t get health care, the consequences affect us all. In King County, good health is out of reach for an estimated 280,000 people who do not have health insurance and access to preventive care. Too often they are forced to bypass

treatment for illnesses, injuries and chronic conditions because of the cost. Inevitably they turn to more expensive emergency rooms when they have reached a crisis point. These individuals pay a hefty price with their health. The rest of society pays a high price as well. The Office of the Insur-

While on my twice daily walk with my dogs at Roegner Park, I observed once again the tracks of a vehicle running on the walking paths, grass, gravel, etc. This destruction of our beautiful parks, as well as graffiti, is an example of how some of our citizens do not honor the taxpayers who pay for these parks, those of us who use our parks and those of use who work hard keeping our parks up to a high standard. How about putting cameras up to deter and catch these ungrateful punks? For seven years, I have walked this park while picking up the poop of other dogs, cigarette butts, cans, clothes, etc., debris that others leave behind.

I would like to express my support for Nancy Backus, a candidate for Auburn Mayor. Nancy has served as our city councilmember since 2003 and is your deputy mayor. Nancy has a deep history with our city. She has worked tirelessly, serving on and chairing numerous committees, represented our city at many state and national functions, worked as a finance manager at The Boeing Co. for more than 24-years, and raised a family in our fine city. Nancy understands our city’s needs for the near term and for the future and has strongly supported planning for economic development and growth over the years while not losing sight of our city’s roots.

believes that our city needs fixing, they had better be prepared to state specifics and not make blank statements without merit. I recall the old adage … “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it!” Our city is coming out of this recession in better shape than most of our surrounding communities because of prudent fiscal spending without the need for big government, and we are a much stronger city and community because of it.

Medicaid expansion will also mean savings in the state budget of approximately $225 million in the next two years. Some legislators may consider walking away from these funds – federal taxes that we have already paid – which instead will pay for health care in other states.

Trojans, Gators find interim home for baseball By SHAWN SKAGER

Once Green River Community College was a baseball team without a home. Although the program once boasted a fine, on-campus field and training facility, expansion at the college over the years overtook the field, rendering the Gators homeless and forcing the team to play its home games at Heritage Park in Puyallup, or at Russell Road Field in Kent. Last season, the Gators caught a break however, when Auburn High School officials agreed to let the team use its park. “We were very fortunate to be able to do that,” said Green River coach Brian Embery. But coming into this season, it appeared that the Gators might be homeless once more. In November, Auburn voters approved a bond to fund the construction of a new high school. Work got under way this week, necessitating the demolition of Auburn’s baseball diamond

Auburn outscored the Timberwolves 16-8 in the second period to pull within seven, with the score 2619 at the intermission. “We went into our full-court press and that seemed to slow them down a bit,” Hansen said. “Two players who really turned the table for us came off the bench.

We’re fortunate they have agreed to let us play here. And in return, I told them I would fix the

field and make it appropriate for college baseball.” The Green River and Auburn programs chipped in to spruce up the field last week. “It’s a really beautiful setting to play baseball,” Embery said. “The field itself just needed a little tender, loving care. And that’s what 29 baseball players (from Green River) are providing.” “They’re putting in new cinders between the dugout and home plate. They’re rebuilding the pitching mound,” Petty said. “They’ve also done some sod cutting

In the second half, Auburn continued to claw its way back into the game, closing to within two points in the fourth quarter. The Trojans, however, were unable to close the gap completely, as Jackson punched its ticket to this weekend’s state 4A Hardwood Classic at the Tacoma Dome. “We played really hard and we competed hard the rest of the game,” Hansen said. “You look back and just wish we had that first quarter back.”

Senior Harold Lee had 14 points to lead the Trojans. Laquell Simmons and Spencer Fisher, both seniors, had 13 points apiece, and Paul chipped in with 9. Jackson junior Jason Todd had a game-high 21 points, 18 rebounds and was 12-of-12 from the free-throw line. Junior Connor Willgress had 15. Brian Zehr chipped in with 11 points, and Dan Kingma scored 6 points in the contest. “You can’t take away anything from this team (Auburn) though,” Hansen said. “They were down by 18 points and they never gave up. That speaks to the character of this team and the way they’ve played all season.”

to spruce it up and take some of the lips out of the edges. We’re possibly going to put some new topsoil on the infield once it dries out a little. And they’ve put up new bases and pegs.” In addition, the Auburn baseball team moved the outfield fence padding and backdrop from the old field to the new one. “The park maintenance staff has been there providing some machinery and support for the schools, but most of the work is being done by the Green River

Community College and Auburn baseball teams,” Petty said. Embery said the extensive work – with his squad providing about 16 hours of labor last week – has been a bonding opportunity. “We’ve had some really good work parties out here,” Embery said. “The kids work together.

March 1, 2013 [11] [ TOXINS from page 1 ] radio station got on the story, they were not happy. The toxin is trichloroethylene, or TCE, a chlorinated hydrocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent. The Boeing Co. used it in the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s to degrease and clean airplane parts. Given that TCE is known to cause cancer after prolonged exposure, Algona residents demanded answers about the safety of their drinking water. Larry Altose, a DOE spokesman, explained what the tests revealed. “What we know is that there is contaminated groundwater that originates on Boeing-Auburn property,” Altose said. “What we’ve been working on for a year now is to determine how far that goes. The most recent finding is that this plume of contaminated groundwater extends outside of Boeing

property. We don’t know where the plume ends, we know it begins on the property. When we find out where it ends, we can begin cleanup.” Altose maintains that there is nothing to worry about. One reason is that feet of impermeable clay and rock, laid down during the Oceola lahar off Mount Rainier 5,700 years ago, separates the groundwater from the aquifers that supply Algona’s drinking water. “This plume does not affect and is nowhere near public drinking water systems in the area,” Altose said. “In fact, it is moving in a direction away from the wells.” In December 2011, the state and Boeing informed the mayors of Pacific, Algona and Auburn about the testing. It drilled test wells throughout the area. But it never told residents what they were.

Richard Hildreth, former mayor of Pacific, said the dearth of information gave people the impression that the state had something to hide. “All three of the mayors of Auburn, Pacific and Algona wanted to make sure this information did get out and that we had complete information,” Hildreth said. “We wanted to make sure that Ecology and Health and Boeing worked with our cities’ public information officers to make sure information got out so it wouldn’t create fear.” That didn’t happen. Altose agreed that the state should have gotten the information out sooner. “We accept responsibility for that, we apologize to the community, and we hope that from here on out we will be able to get people the information they need about the investigation,” Altose said. Hildreth said he believes the risk

of contamination is minuscule. “I think the risk of contamination of our drinking water is probably 1-in-10 million, I think it’s a very minimal risk, because of the barrier between those ground layers,” Hildreth said. Now all anybody can do is wait for the next tests. The next round of drilling in that part of Algona is set for middle or late March. “At the time of the meeting in December of 2011, there were about 65 wells that were either already in place or planned. Now I guess it’s over 250 wells, and they actually want to install another 150, 160 of them,” Hildreth said. One big unknown is whether toxic vapors could rise to the surface. To date, testing at the Auburn Valley YMCA next to Boeing and nearby buildings hasn’t turned up any contamination.
