Mobile home residents plead for rezoning ‘We’re in real trouble’ if landowner sells Belmor Park By Greg Allmain

The Federal Way City Council voted unanimously to move mobile home park zoning to high priority for the city’s 2013 Plan-

ning Commission Work Plan. The move came at the April 14 council meeting after a number of citizens from the Belmor Park community made pleas to the council to consider the change, among them Mike Nugent and

Renee Marshall. According to the Belmor Park residents, they’re worried that the owner of the park property is close to retirement, and are unsure of what may happen if the owner’s family decides to sell the property where their homes sit. “We’re promoting the process of

mobile home park zoning at our park, as well as 11 other parks in the city of Federal Way,” Nugent said. “That’s about 1,100 residents in this area. We’re promoting this (because) we are owners as well as renters. We rent the property, but we own our homes. The problem is, that if the owner of the land de-

cides to sell the property, we have one year to relocate or move our homes out of the area, and that’s really not an option for any of us…The problem is, if the owners sell the park, we’re in real trouble. We cannot move the homes or relocate very well.” [ more MOBILE HOMES, page 17 ]

Man pleads guilty to shooting wife at church

Sentenced in 2011 death

Mirror staff reports

An Auburn man will spend 31½ years in prison for the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend’s current boyfriend in her Federal Way apartment in 2011. Michael Ray Fiorini, 29, pleaded guilty in February to first-degree murder with a firearm enhancement for killing Christopher D. Johnson, 27. The sentence range was 25 to 31½ years in prison. At about 3:15 a.m. Feb. 24, 2011, Fiorini broke the sliding glass door to his ex’s apartment at the Habitat Condominiums at 33005 18th Place S. He entered, confronted the woman as she lay on her couch, pointed a gun at her and told her to “shut up.” Johnson, who had been sleeping in the bedroom, came out and approached the woman and Fiorini. Fiorini shot him once in the chest.

A Lakewood man pleaded guilty last week to first-degree murder after shooting his ex-wife at a Federal Way church in 2010. Charles L. Parsons, 44, faces up to 28 and a half years in prison, which is the maximum sentence recommended by prosecutors. A sentencing date has not been scheduled. On March 17, 2010, Parsons shot his ex-wife, Carol Parsons, 38, during a counseling session at Calvary Lutheran Church. The couple had been married 12 years and had three children. They had divorced the previous year, but Charles Parsons wanted to reconcile the relationship. The shooting took place during a time when there were children upstairs at the church’s daycare.

Cops investigate fresh blood CRIME

This week’s…


Police Blotter Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log: • Bloody hotel wastebasket: At 7:20 a.m. April 13 in the 1400 block of South 320th Street, officers were called to the Extended Stay hotel when an employee located a wastebasket containing a substantial amount of blood and left inside the third-floor common trash room. A presumptive test was conducted and the blood was determined to be human. A guest list was obtained, and officers went door to door conducting welfare checks due to the amount of blood and the apparent fresh nature. The investigation revealed the only room to have a trash can missing was room 306. Two males inside were contacted. Neither male could/would provide an explanation for the blood. Neither male appeared injured. A voluntary consent to search the room (and the subject’s car) was obtained. Blood was located on the bathroom floor and on towels, and had been cleaned up. A welfare check was conducted at the subject’s Federal Way address with negative results. A family member advised officers that one of the two subjects has medical/mental issues. Local hospitals were checked for victims with negative results. Swabs were obtained from the scene and comparison swabs were obtained from the two males. The investigation did not establish that

a crime had been committed. The males were released on scene. Lab testing is pending. • Falling asleep in the drivethru: At 2:19 a.m. April 14 in the 2000 block of SW Campus Drive, it was reported a man had passed out in his vehicle while waiting in the drive-thru line at Taco Bell. The report notes the man was eventually arrested for DUI. • Passed out driver, part deux: At 3:40 a.m. April 14 in the 30000 block of 2nd Avenue SW, another person was found passed out in their vehicle. According to the report, the man was arrested on suspicion of DUI and for driving with a suspended license. • Mail theft: At 9 a.m. April 14 in the 2500 block of South 316th Lane, unknown suspects broke into a mailbox cluster at an apartment complex and stole an unknown amount of mail. • Not what Macklemore had in mind: At 11:29 a.m. April 14 in the 32000 block of Pacific Highway South, the suspect was arrested for attempting to steal $17 worth of items from Goodwill. • Vehicle prowl: At 11:58 a.m. April 13 in the 1900 block of South 331st Street, the victim’s vehicle was broken into and a number of tools, along with a bottle of prescription medication, were stolen. The report notes surveillance of the break-in was available and was being reviewed. • Bag of mail found on roadside: At 11:48 a.m. April 13 in the 600 block of SW 323rd Street, the reporting party said they had

noticed an odd bag alongside a road for a number of days. When they finally investigated the bag, they discovered it was full of stolen mail. Police took the bag from the reporting party and booked it into evidence for safekeeping. • Woman avoids arrest because of how drunk she is: At 1:01 p.m. April 13 in the 28000 block of 25th Place South, a woman’s aunt contacted police because the woman had shown up unwanted at the aunt’s house. According to the report, the woman was incredibly intoxicated. The report notes the woman had several active warrants, but was not arrested. Instead, she was transported to the hospital for treatment because her blood-alcohol level was .411. • Surveillance camera inception moment: At 4:45 p.m. April 13 in the 35000 block of Pacific Highway South, two suspects were recorded by a surveillance camera as they cut the lines to a number of other surveillance cameras and stole those cameras. • Wire theft: At 3:34 a.m. April 12 in the 800 block of South 318th Street, a man reported witnessing unknown individuals stealing wire-like materials from a nearby construction site. • HVAC units targeted again: At 3:57 p.m. April 12 in the 1000 block of South 320th Street, a building manager reported that the two HVAC units attached to his building had been gutted by unknown suspects. According to the report, the materials taken from the innards of the HVAC units had an estimated value of $9,000.

For crime, the city recorded its lowest crime rate in 2011, which Priest credits to the Federal Way Police Department and initiatives like the Safe City camera program. “We are committed to using a proactive rather than reactive approach to ensuring public safety in our community,” Priest wrote in a news release. In terms of economic development, Priest reports that a number of employers have moved into Federal Way. Among those employers he noted in his news release were DaVita, Morphotrak, and the Xerox/ACS call center. A new infusion of cash into The Commons Mall from an investment group that includes Magic Johnson is also a positive note, according to Priest. “The City Council and I have worked hard to ensure that we have the most competitive and attractive business environment possible and this strategy is already paying large dividends. In addition, I am committed to finding innovative ways to revitalize the downtown core to ensure that we have the financial resources necessary to support police, schools parks and other essential public services in the future,” the mayor said. Finally, Priest said he’s been able to keep the city’s budget under control. Priest served on the Federal Way City Council from 1992 to 1997, including two years as an appointed mayor under the city’s council-manager form of

House budget passes with more money for education By GREG ALLMAIN

The Washington State House of Representatives unveiled its budget last week and passed it with a 54-43 vote. The House budget pencils in $1.3 billion in new revenues as the first volley in meeting the requirements of fully funding education — as set forth in last year’s Supreme Court case, McCleary vs. State of Washington. The vote was divided along party lines. From the 30th District, which represents the Federal Way area, State Rep. Roger Freeman (D) voted yes and State Rep. Linda Kochmar (R) voted no. The lone dissenting

Democrat was State Rep. Monica Stonier of Vancouver. No Republicans voted in favor of the budget. The House budget is similar to the one released by Gov. Jay Inslee in recent weeks, and uses much of the same plan to raise the needed money for educa-

tion funding. Most notably, the House budget coincides with Inslee’s plan in extending taxes on some businesses and a .50-cent beer tax, which is projected would raise $600 million. Also like Inslee’s plan, the House budget looks to close or

tighten up perceived tax “loopholes” and similar exemptions. Among those would be preferential tax rates for insurance and travel agents, to nixing the sales tax exemptions on things like bottled water. (Read more online at

Does FW have viable development plan? The development of the downtown corridor has been talked about since Federal Way became a city. An international district was proposed. Different high-rises have been proposed, including a crystal structure. It has been proposed that moving the library and City Hall downtown would facilitate its development. Now it is a performing arts and conference center (PACC). My question to the city council: What is wrong with the downtown? The mall is lacking in shops, but

Some in Olympia are happy with new Gov. Jay Inslee, and some aren’t. But one thing seems clear: Inslee will be a different kind of governor and will march to his own drummer. For Inslee, it won’t be business, or politics, as usual. He is clearly planning to bring a different way of thinking to Olympia. With his casual yet comfortable manner, he brings a rugged western quality more reflective of his time in Eastern Washington rather than his time on the eastern seaboard as a member of Congress. His style is one of a person you can talk to, rather than just listen to. From the beginning, Inslee has approached his office in a different manner. He chose Mary Alice Heuschel — the Renton superintendent of schools — as his chief of staff, even though she had no state capital job experience. Most expected him to pick an Olympia insider to balance his own lack of recent state experience. Some felt that with his time spent mostly in the nation’s capital, and not the state capital, Inslee would need an insider to help him tackle the Republican-controlled Senate and deal with powerful Democratic Speaker of the House Frank Chopp. In most administrations, the chief of staff has state management and state budget experience along with lobbying connections, and runs the daily operations of state government. Inslee also generated criticism for being slow to announce cabinet-level appointments and not submitting a full budget of his own. But Inslee’s choice of chief of staff did send a

strong message that K-12 would be big priority for him, and that he wanted a knowledgeable person with real-life experience leading his efforts. Inslee did balance his administration by keeping several members of former Gov. Christine Gregoire’s cabinet and adding several new faces, including high-profile outsiders as Secretary of Transportation and the Department of Social and Health Services. Due to the short time frame between getting sworn in and the start of the session, he submitted several new ideas rather than a budget when Greqoire’s was already up for debate. And Inslee didn’t bend to satisfy others’ timetables, which may have also helped him avoid some possible traps. Inslee is passionate about his views and priorities and hasn’t been afraid to wade into difficult issues on the environment and energy, contacting legislators directly. Learning how and when to push the levers of power is something all governors must learn. Inslee’s most recent move may have been the most surprising of all. That he chose to replace four of Gregoire’s appointments to the Washington State Achievement Council was not a big surprise. But the selections were shocking to Olympia and some of Inslee’s own party. He replaced former congressional and Democratic colleague Brian Baird; former Seattle Community College Chairwomen Constance Rice; Jay Reich, who was Deputy Chief of Staff to Gary Locke when he was Commerce Secretary; and Jose Gaitan, who was State Academic [ more ROEGNER, page 5 ] Bob Roegner

The difference with Gov. Inslee INSIDE POLITICS


A couple of years ago, I wrote another article about consent — about the Slut Walk in Seattle, held in response to a police officer’s comments about women’s attire being associated with rape. In response, I received a letter reacting to a reference in the article of a sign held at the Slut Walk that said: “My dress can’t say yes; only I can.” The man responded: “Not that rape is ever condoned, but do we walk around with money hanging out of our pockets in a frustrated attempt to cry out, ‘my pockets can’t say yes; only I can.’ A nice sentiment, but don’t make any big plans for that money.” Herein lies the problem. In theory, we “don’t condone” rape. But in practice, many people in our society still think there’s some justification, however slight, when a woman dresses a certain way… or walks in a certain place at a certain time… or goes somewhere alone… or has a certain type of history… or is inebriated. It’s a slippery slope, my friends. The only way to truly not condone rape is to realize that it’s not justified, ever. Just because someone is dressed a certain way, or flirting, or drinking or using drugs, does not give anyone else the right to have sex with them. The only way that is OK is if they are of age and have mutually consented to this behavior. See my last article on what constitutes consent. Furthermore, it’s an insult to men to say they can’t help themselves if a woman is dressed provocatively, or wants to engage in activities other than intercourse, but not have sex. Men are not animals, unable to control emotions or actions. To expect that type of behavior from them is demeaning and sexist. People resist temptation all the time. It’s not always easy, but we do it. All of us, men and women alike, need to think about our actions. Do I think I’ll put on a sexy dress and go walking down a dark alley tonight just for fun? No. But if I did, and if I were attacked, it would not be my fault. There is no law against my wearing a sexy dress or walking in a dark alley at night. There are laws against assaulting people, and none of them say, “Unless she was wearing a sexy dress and walking in a dark alley at night.” Some people just act like that’s what the laws say. This is a hot topic. I hope this article has provoked you to at least continue having conversations with people you love and care about. Perhaps you can start by asking the young men in your life what they do to avoid being raped. Most haven’t ever had to think about it. Contrast that with what young women think about and do to avoid rape, and you’re likely to get quite a different answer. For more ideas on what to talk about, go to These conversations are what will end up changing the culture, so get talking. And stay safe out there.

● L E T T E r S - Y o u r opinion C o u nts :

To submit an item or photo for publication: email Letters may be edited for style, clarity and length. I hear Kohl’s is coming. Why has it taken so long? Is the lack of stores in the mall due to not having a PACC, or is it due to poor management of the mall or an extensive permit process? One thing wrong with the downtown is the traffic. If the traffic is bad now, what will happen when we add the proposed development? The $5 million proposed for street improvement if the PACC is built is far too small of an amount to

improve traffic. What company will supply the entertainment that will support the PACC’s 700 seats? Do they have a plan to draw from other cities? If they do not fill the seats, will the taxpayers end up supporting the center? What company has come forward to pay for naming rights? Is there a guarantee that all the grants needed to fund the project will be funded? What parks and services will not

be funded due to the $200,000 “estimated” annual taxpayer funding? Dumas Bay Centre is in need of improvement. What are your plans for its development? Do you have a viable plan for the entire city’s development? Please be specific, as I have read the city’s comprehensive plan. Is the downtown the only area of importance to the city council? Where was the support for Metropolitan Market? Why did it leave? How do you know this is a shared community goal?

Religious beliefs and federal law In a recent letter to the editor on April 12, Paul Levy claims that “Hobby Lobby discriminates against women because the owner has decided that his religious beliefs trump federal law.” David Green’s lawsuit that the federal government cannot repeal the First Amendment and deprive him of religious liberty by forcing his company, Hobby Lobby, to pay for contraceptives — including the morning-after pill, which Green and many others believe is a form of abortion — does not “impose his family’s religious beliefs on his employees” or on anyone else. The women who work for him can buy as many contraceptives as they want; he should not have to violate his conscience by being

forced to pay for them. As a woman who is not opposed to the use of contraceptives, I do not want my First Amendment rights of freedom of religion, or freedom of speech, or any others, taken away by some federal law, and I’m sure Mr. Levy would not want that for himself, either. During the time of slavery in this country, the Quakers and others, in violation of the federal Fugitive Slave Law, helped escaping slaves move through the Underground Railroad and make it to freedom. Is Mr. Levy also indignant at them, that they decided that their religious beliefs that slavery was wrong trumped federal law?

The halls of Olympia have seen many well-intended people and ideas sidetracked by special interests and party politics that dominate policy fabric. Many people didn’t expect Inslee to be here, but he is, and he is making his presence known. If Inslee can truly set the state on a new course in education that prepares our children for the next century, it would be a monumental achievement.

Achievement and Accountability Chairman. Big hitters in any league, but particularly in Democratic politics. Inslee has expressed his belief that college can be a gamechanger in the lives of many young people. He apparently views the new Achievement Council as an avenue to establish an imprint on the future of higher education and wants to send his own message with his own appointees. He seems willing to challenge the normal way of doing business to meet that goal. Inslee’s new approach has been a shock to many.

Teacher and student bond with shaved heads By GREG ALLMAIN

You don’t find many teachers willing to shave their head in support of a student, but that’s exactly what Amanda Hubbard did for her student Melissa Garcia-Robles. GREG ALLMAIN, The Mirror

Teachers and students bond with each other throughout the course of a school year, for a variety of reasons — some serious, some lighthearted. At Wildwood Elementary, one fifth-grade teacher has created what will likely be an indelible bond with one of her students.

When you get right down to it, you don’t find many teachers willing to shave their head in support of a student, but that’s exactly what Amanda Hubbard did for her student Melissa Garcia-Robles. “It took me about a week, but I finally went into J.C. Penney and said, ‘just shave it off,’” Hubbard recalled, her black hair now short and spiky. “And I came in

the next day, and it was totally worth it. She (GarciaRobles) was so excited, and it meant a lot to her.” Hubbard shaved her head in support of GarciaRobles, who had shaved her head shortly before in support of her cancer-stricken older sister, Arpisy Estrada. Estrada, 15, is a student at Sacajawea Middle School who was diagnosed with leukemia in late 2012. She

is currently being treated by Dr. Robert Irwin of Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma. Their mother, Ana Susana Robles-Salcido, said Hubbard’s selfless act in support of her daughters is powerful and profound. “I felt something beautiful, it was a beautiful thing…the act of love the teacher had done,” she said through an interpreter. “I am very grateful to her.” For Garcia-Robles, expressing her reasons why she shaved her head are difficult, as it probably would be for most fifth-graders. “I felt sorry for her,” she said simply. Older sister Estrada said her little sister’s support, along with Hubbard’s support, has been invaluable. “It’s sweet that they did that,” she said. “Now I know they have support for me and I know they’re on my side too.” Robles-Salcido said that Estrada’s sickness is contained, and that there are currently no cancerous cells in her body. Her faith shines through in her words, especially as she spoke about Irwin and the staff at Mary Bridge. “(We) have a wonderful doctor, and he’s an angel sent from God,” she said. “It’s a special hospital, the whole staff have been wonderful. They have been (supportive of) the family. I have never been in a hospital like that with a lot of attention. It has been a hard time, but wonderful, because everybody has supported us.” Hubbard said the experience has made a deep impact on her as well, especially after she made the decision to shave her hair. “You just don’t know how many people have been impacted by cancer,” she said. “It’s just a much more powerful statement than I thought it ever could have been.” While their hair continues to grow back (with Hubbard getting some special help from RoblesSalcido in the form of a special shampoo), RoblesSalcido is confident that her daughter and her family can beat cancer. “At this stage right now, we are going to win this battle, we are going to win the battle of cancer,” she said. “I know we will.”

The Mirror gives special thanks to Wildwood Family Liaison Greta Holtz, who was instrumental in making this story possible.

Hundreds of kids storm the Sound for salmon By ANDY HOBBS

The baby salmon fluttered in plastic cups that lined the bridge over Hylebos Creek. Nearly 300 children, one by one, named and released the hatchlings into the chilly waters that will carry them to Puget Sound. Students from 13 schools

participated in Storming the Sound for Salmon. Sponsored by the city and school district, the program immersed children in science and environmental education at West Hylebos Wetlands Park. Considered Federal Way’s hidden jewel, the park off South 348th Street is also a critical natural habitat for local wildlife. A boardwalk loops through the bog and moss-coated woods. Aside from releasing salmon into the wild, the students planted ever-

greens, shriveled their noses at salmon guts, poked starfish and sea urchins, and paid closer attention to the calls of birds. The program is supported by a $73,000 grant from the Department of Ecology. Participating elementary schools were Brigadoon, Camelot, Lakeland, Mirror Lake, Panther Lake, Sherwood Forest, Star Lake, Twin Lakes, Wildwood and Woodmont. Participating middle schools were Lakota, Saghalie and Sequoyah. Other highlights from

this year’s program: • In a dodgeball-like lesson, students learned about invasive vs. native species. • Students painted technicolor murals on mattresssize canvases. • The Highline MaST center brought starfish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers and other Sound-crawling critters. Volunteers from the Issaquah salmon hatchery dissected an adult salmon. EarthCorps volunteers led explorations of the salmon life cycle and helped plant several trees.

Little Russia co-owners Tatyana Koshevaya and Barbara Lilly opened their gourmet bistro at 34428 Pacific Highway S. (near Secoma Lanes).

ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror which are deceptively rich open-faced sandwiches on toasted bread. Selections include The Baltic with smoked sprat fish, sundried tomatoes, sliced egg and baby pickles that meld together in savory harmony. The Moscow sandwich pairs sliced dry sausage with havarti cheese, butter and sun-dried tomatoes. The menu includes traditional pickled cabbage and beet salads, along with buttery handmade croissants called plachenda — akin to a decadent piroshky stuffed with a range of flavors such as potatoes or cabbage. The bistro also sells Russian and Eastern European groceries, pastries, candies and beverages like kvass, a soda made from rye. A highlight of the menu is the blinchiki, also known as Russian crepes, available in a range of sweet styles fit for both dessert and breakfast. The fresh berry blinchiki is served warm and topped with raspberries, blueberries, whip cream,

chocolate and a spatter of powdered sugar. Food is only one facet of Little Russia. Local artists display paintings and ceramics along the bistro’s walls, and classic tea kettles adorn the tables. The goal is to make the bistro a social and cultural hub in Federal Way. “It’s like a Russian and American collaboration,” said Lilly, who was born in the U.S. but has lived all over Europe. “We want to merge cultures together.” Koshevaya is a Russian refugee who moved to the U.S. nearly 22 years ago. In that time, she has worked as a social advocate and interpreter for immigrants. Little Russia is an extension of this social mission, she said, hoping to alleviate the struggles of immigrants while also serving as a catalyst for positive change. “We want to bring people together through culture,” Koshevaya said. “We want to bring together Russians and Americans.”

UFC: Henderson not looking ahead Wrap up:

FW’s Penn sets state HJ record

Decatur grad will defend lightweight title on national TV Saturday at UFC on FOX 7 in San Jose By CASEY OLSON

Benson Henderson has learned a lot during his mixed-martial arts career. The biggest of those lessons is to never overlook anybody entering a fight. And that’s exactly what is happening leading up to Henderson’s Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight title fight Saturday night against No. 1 contender Gilbert Melendez. “I’m definitely not looking past Gilbert,” said Henderson, a 2001 Decatur High School graduate. “He’s tough as heck. I know how tough Gil is.” Henderson’s strategy has been working to perfection. Since joining the UFC, he is a perfect 6-0 and 18-2 overall, including three victories in 155-pound title fights. Henderson took over the UFC 155-pound championship in February 2012 with a win over former champ Frankie Edgar in Japan. Since then, he beat Edgar in a rematch in August and won a unanimous decision over Nate Diaz in December 2012 in Seattle. “I’m not too worried about prov-

I’m a highly self-motivated person. I don’t care who the guy is. I just want to win, period.” Melendez is an impressive 21-2 during his MMA career and was the final Strikeforce lightweight title holder, where he spent the last

seven years of his career. Contractual champion clauses with the rival MMA organization kept him from making his long-awaited UFC debut, until Saturday. The Henderson-Melendez will be the main event at the UFC on FOX 7 event inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The nationally-tele[ more UFC page 16 ]

Carpio wins national wrestling title By CASEY OLSON

Arian Carpio just keeps racking up the wrestling titles. The Todd Beamer High School sophomore added the very prestigious USA Wrestling Girls Folkstyle Nationals championship to her alreadypacked trophy collection. Carpio won the 124-pound

Arian Carpio

title at the national championships, which were held at Oklahoma City University March 29-30. Carpio dominated the competition in Oklahoma, winning all four of her matches by pin, including a 30-second fall over Texas’ Rebekah Cordova in the final. Carpio got the national championships started with

a 2:30 pin over California’s Daishea Jaime in her opening match. She then beat Texas’ Brianna Holcomb in 5:40 before pinning Indiana’s Courtney Gray in the semifinals in just 30 seconds. This was Carpio’s second individual national championship at the USA Wrestling Girls Folkstyle event in [ more carpio page 13 ]

The Federal Way High School boys and girls track teams remained unbeaten Wednesday with an impressive sweep of Todd Beamer at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. The Eagle boys beat the Titans, 93-34, and the girls won, 90-51. On a day with several impressive performances, Federal Way freshman Tyson Penn had the most impressive of them all. The Eagle ninth-grader won the high jump with a state-best leap of 6-foot-8. According to head coach Sam Beesley, who is a 41-year coaching veteran, Penn’s jump is the best-ever by a freshman in the state of Washington. The old record of 6-7 was held by Hanford’s Dan Coleran (1987) and Klickitat’s Paul Byron (1993). Penn’s jump was also two inches short of the Federal Way High School record of 6-10, set by Ed Miller on 1988. In total, the Federal Way boys won 12 of the 16 individual events against Beamer with Ezekiel McNeal, Albert Havili and Aaron Persinger each winning a pair. McNeal won the 100 meters (11.05) and 400 (49.72), Havili won both the shot put (52-6) and discus (166-5) and Pers[ more wrap up page 15 ]

1990s. He and Shawn Kemp formed the most thrilling and electrifying duo in Seattle basketball history. Payton was a nine-time NBA All-Star, a nine-time AllDefensive first-team player, and was the 1996 Defensive Player of the Year. He holds the Sonics record for points, assists and steals. He also won Olympic gold medals in 1996 and 2000, and led the Sonics into the NBA Championship Series in 1996, where they lost to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. Despite the lack of overwhelming


The cities of Seattle and Sacramento are currently locked in a battle royal with the ultimate prize being a National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise playing in their city next fall. So, it’s pretty easy to see why the news of longtime Seattle icon Gary Payton being elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame kind of got swept under the rug. But the news didn’t go unnoticed by me. Payton put his heart and soul on the court during the Sonics’ heyday in the

attention regarding the Hall of Fame vote, the intertwined storylines regarding the battle for the Kings and Payton are kind of fitting, if you really think about it. “The Glove” has been the most vocal voice of former Sonics regarding the NBA returning to Seattle. And if they do come back to Seattle, it would be even more fitting that Payton’s No. 20 Hall of Fame jersey is the first to hang from the rafters during the “new era” of the Seattle SuperSonics. Payton has openly expressed his desire not to have his jersey retired in [ more sidelines page 14 ]

Briefs: TJ’s Patton named MEAC fastpitch Player of the Week By CASEY OLSON

Savannah State shortstop Michaela Patton was named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) softball Player of the Week for the week of March 4-10, the conference announced last week. In two victories over Norfolk State, the Thomas Jefferson High School graduate batted .830 (5-for-6) with two doubles, five runs and five RBIs. In game one of the double-header, Patton was 3 for 4 with a double and two RBIs, along with three assists and one putout. Patton, a true freshman, was perfect at the plate (3for-3) in the second game with her second double of Michaela Patton the week along with three RBIs and two walks. She added three putouts and one assist in the 12-7 victory. On the season, Patton is hitting .353 with 30 runs, nine doubles, two home runs and 15 RBIs. The Lady Tigers are 21-16 on the season. As a senior at TJ, Patton was named first-team, All-SPSL North by the league’s coaches. Patton led Jefferson to the state tournament for the fourth-straight season after setting an all-time TJ record for hits in a season with 57 and tied for highest batting average at .559. She also had a teambest 40 RBIs, scored 44 runs, 13 doubles, seven triples and one home run. Patton was also 9 for 9 in stolen bases. • After sitting out the fall season, former Decatur High School scoring machine Dom Dismuke will make his soccer debut for the University of Washington in the spring. Huskies head coach Jamie Clark announced recently that Dismuke will join with Darwin Jones and Brad Jacobson. Dismuke will be a freshman on the 2013 team. As a senior at Decatur, the forward was ranked the seventh-best player in the West Region by Dismuke was a three-time All-South Puget Sound League first-team selection. “In our opinion, Dom is the best senior forward in the state,” Clark said when Dismuke signed as a Decatur senior. “He has the ability to stretch defenses with his pace, but also has very good feet and has a nose for goal. He is one of the top scorers in the academy league at the halfway point

[ carpio from page 12 ] Oklahoma City. She also won the schoolgirl-age title when she was in middle school back in 2011. Carpio beat Emily Newberry from Kansas in the 105-pound weight class. Carpio has had a nearly impeccable two-year career on the Beamer wrestling team. Her only loss with the Titans came in the 2012 championship match at the Mat Classic state

in the season and I’m sure he will continue to find the net for the rest of this season and in seasons to come.” He finished with seven goals and four assists during his senior season Dom Dismuke at Decatur and tallied 14 goals and five assists as a junior. Dismuke also played with the Seattle Sounders FC Academy program and led the 18-under team in goals with 13 during the 2012 season. Washington finished the 2012 season with a 13-5-2 record and lost to Creighton in the NCAA Tournament’s second round. The Huskies’ spring schedule, which features all exhibitions, continues April 20 at home against the Kitsap Pumas, April 27 at the Victoria Highlanders, and May 3 at home against Seattle Pacific. • The Federal Way Boys and Girls Club is currently enrolling youth for their 2013 Coed Spring Baseball League.

championships inside the Tacoma Dome. But Carpio got some redemption in February when she won the 112-pound state title, completing a perfect 23-0 season with a pin over Kentridge’s Taylor Lee. “This is such a relief,” Carpio said after the match. “I have been working for this all year. I have been working so hard.” Carpio said that losing the state championship match during her freshman season was the main

motivation for her getting back to the Tacoma Dome and winning the elusive state title. “This is a way different feeling than last year,” Carpio said. “This is one of the best feelings I’ve felt in my life and last year was one of the worst.” Carpio also added an individual championship at the Napa Valley Classic in Southern California in January. Carpio won the 114-pound bracket, which featured 49 wrestlers.

[14] April 19, 2013 [sidelines from page 12] has been instrumental in Oklahoma City as part of the former Sonic team history. Payton has also stated that when the NBA returns to Seattle, he wants to be part of the organization. “These fans were great to me all the time,” Payton said in a recent interview. “When we went to the championship, it was because of them.” Payton is featured in the documentary “Sonicsgate,” which covers the team’s relocation from Seattle to Oklahoma City. “Sonicsgate” was released back in 2009, and focused on the more scandalous corporate and political reasons as to why the team left Seattle in July 2008 to become the Oklahoma City Thunder. Payton even accepted the 2010 Webby Award for “Sonicsgate” in New York City. The documentary was named the year’s Best Sports Film. As is the Webby Awards tradition, honorees are limited to acceptance speeches of five words or less. Payton said these five words as he accepted the award on behalf of the “Sonicsgate” filmmakers: “Bring back our Seattle SuperSonics.” The connection between Payton and the return of the Sonics can be taken even further. Payton earned his nickname “The Glove” after his cousin called him during the 1993 Western Conference Finals against Phoenix and told him, “You’re holding Kevin Johnson like a baseball in a glove.” Johnson is now the mayor of Sacramento and

putting the city in position to keep the Kings in the California capital. Johnson led a group that has put together a plan to build a $448 million downtown arena. He found investors who are willing to purchase the team from the Maloof family, the current owners, matching the Seattle bid. A group led by hedge fund manager Chris Hansen and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced plans to buy the Sacramento Kings in January from the Maloofs in a deal that valued the franchise at $525 million. Hansen would move the Kings to Seattle next season and eventually play in a to-be-built $500 million arena. The group filed relocation papers with the NBA, expecting to vote on the sale and relocation at its April board of governors meeting. But Johnson is not letting go of the Kings without a fight. “I hope Seattle gets a team someday,” Johnson said recently. “Let me be perfectly crystal clear, it is not going to be this team. Not our team. No way.” Payton is essentially the third Sonic to be elected to the Hall of Fame, joining longtime player/coach Lenny Wilkens and Dennis Johnson, who played five seasons, including the 1979 championship team. Joining Payton in the class of 2013 are Louisville head coach Rick Pitino, former NBA star Bernard King, former UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian, among others. The inductions will take place in Springfield, Mass., in September.

vised card will also include a heavyweight fight between Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir and a lightweight tilt between Diaz and Josh Thomson. The card will kickoff on FOX Channel 13 at 5 p.m. Adding to the intrigue Saturday night will be the fact that Melendez and Diaz, who Henderson beat in dominating fashion on Dec. 8, are training partners and best friends in the Bay Area. “Of course I would love to avenge my friend,” Melendez said. “I got to see first-hand what Benson’s all about. When your buddies fight, you can’t help but get a little emotional. I wanted the opportunity to fight this dude. I’m just licking my chops.” Melendez has been nursing a shoulder injury and hasn’t fought since May 2012, when he beat

Thomson in a split decision. Melendez was supposed to fight in September, but an injury kept him from the card. “This is a neat opportunity for me,” Melendez said. “I’m definitely prepared. I’m going to take full advantage of it.” This will be the third time that Henderson will be fighting on national television on a non-pay-per-view card. He beat Clay Guida at the inaugural UFC on FOX 1 event in Anaheim and defended his title last month with a win over Nate Diaz at UFC on FOX 5 in Seattle. Henderson, 29, began his wrestling career during his time at Lakota Middle School and continued wrestling at Decatur. He went on to wrestle at Dana College in Nebraska and started MMA fighting a year after a dare from a couple of wrestlers.

midst of Hotel Concepts’ struggle to find money to build the Holiday Inn Express. Coupled with the recession, this scenario further stacked the deck against a new hotel succeeding in southern Federal Way. “It had all of the complications that one can expect,” he said of the project. “Finally when we were ready to go, unfortunately the permit had expired.” KPR Hospitality Investments LP, a subsidiary of Hotel Concepts, still owns the 2.5-acre property in Federal Way. No plans have been determined for an alternative development on the site, which borders wetlands. Hotel Concepts develops and manages hotels all over the region. The company is currently building a Holiday Inn Express in Tacoma along with a Hampton Inn in Everett. The company is no stranger in Federal Way, having built the Days Inn (formerly known as Holiday Inn Express) and the Comfort Inn located farther north on Pacific Highway. Hotel Concepts may still have a foot in the Federal Way market. Seattle-based developer Lorax Partners is moving forward with schematic drawings for a performing arts and conference center (PACC) in downtown Federal Way. The initial PACC proposal, slated for a vacant lot on 20th Avenue South, calls for a 700-seat performance hall along with a 120-unit hotel. Ramzanalli said his company has been approached by Lorax about possibly building a hotel similar to Holiday

Healthy competition? Days Inn co-owner Rachna Sachnar saw the proposed Holiday Inn Express not as a competitor, but as an asset. She said the Holiday Inn would have been a magnet for potential customers. “It would have upgraded our business,” she told The Mirror. “There would have been more pros than cons, so we had no problem if they were building it here.” The vacant lot behind Days Inn has attracted trouble over the years, namely homeless people and graffiti. Upon learning that the Holiday Inn proposal died, Sachnar was interested in contacting the developer about renting the lot for semi-truck parking. Advertising such an amenity, she said, would boost business and lure away some of the nearby Super 8 Hotel’s trucking customers. Sachnar and partner Ashoo Ohri bought the Days Inn about four years ago, and the 54-room hotel has struggled to stay open. The bank reduced the mortgage “so we could survive,” she said. The business partners are also involved in a legal dispute with the previous owners regarding the validity of reported sales figures when they bought the hotel. “If someone wants to buy us out, we’re ready to sell,” she said, noting that the hotel pays roughly $50,000 in taxes a year. “It’s killing our business.”
