Developers’ plans for downtown block take shape By ROBERT WHALE

Future glance: A developers’ conceptual look of the Auburn’s Project Lofts at the corner of West Main and South Division streets. COURTESY RENDERING,

A mixed-use building comprised of 12,000 square feet of firstfloor retail facing East Main Street, below five floors of 128 marketrate apartments, transformable into condominiums. Such is the plan developers John McKenna and Brett Jacobsen have

for Project Lofts, the name they’ve given to the future building on the old Cavanaugh lot. Doug Lein, Auburn’s economic development manager, said this week that McKenna and Jacobsen are already into the full design phase of their project and hope to begin work by the end of the year. Their company, Plan A Develop-

ment, bought the block on East Main Street on March 11 from LLC Bankers Capital Management, LLC and Centrum Financial Services, Inc. for $1.4 million. According to the City’s newsletter “City News”, Project Lofts is to include a second-floor Plaza Level, replete with a central courtyard [ more PROJECT page 3 ]

FINDING, SHOWING OTHERS THE WAY Auburn man survives drug addiction, jail to build a career in counseling



Jail is a wasteland, a dead end for men and women awash in pain, despair, anger. Auburn’s George Brummell knows this all too well. Growing up in northeast Portland | 253-931-3043

Art and Wine Walk comes to downtown The third annual Art Walk returns Friday to downtown Auburn. The event – featuring quality local artists, fine wines and businesses – starts at 5 p.m. and ends

[ RECALL from page 1 ] According to Kim van Ekstrom, King County Elections chief communications officer, the process of verifying signatures on the petitions began Thursday. “We review those and continue to work through them and verify that all of the signatures are registered voters in the City of Pacific,” van Ekstrom said. “As soon as we reach the required number of signatures, or if we get through all of them and there aren’t enough, we issue either a certificate of sufficiency or a certificate of insufficiency.” To move forward, 412 verified signatures are required. According to van Ekstrom, the count is expected to take about

at 9 p.m. More than 25 artists will display and sell their works in the Main Street businesses serving as temporary galleries. “We’ve shortened the event to focus on an evening art and wine walk,” said Laura Westergard, executive director of the Auburn three days. If there are enough signatures after it is finished, a date will be set for a recall election. According to the committee’s attorney, Jeff Helsdon, an election could take place in late June or early July. Meanwhile, at Monday’s Pacific City Council workshop meeting, the council agreed to form a committee to determine how it will handle the possibility of Sun’s recall. “The citizens want to know the direction we are going, and the council needs to have a what-if plan,” Council President Leanne Guier said. “Everyone is going to be looking to the council for directions and answers,” she added.

Downtown Association and Art Walk co-chair. Original handmade quality paintings, mosaics and wearable art will be on display and for sale at downtown businesses. A full listing of participating artists and businesses is available at If Sun is recalled, it will be up to the council to select a councilmember to fill the rest of Sun’s term, which expires Jan. 1, 2016. “The impact of the recall election itself would be clear as soon as it’s certified,” said City Councilmember Joshua Putnam. “But then the reaction to it … how quickly would an interim mayor take power from council? How quickly could the council react to it? What needs to be done with compliance with contracts? Anything like that, we need to have (a plan).” Guier added: “The purpose is not to undermine or to do anything other than having a contingency plan.”

In other development news, Mayor Pete Lewis got the goahead Monday to enter into purchase-and-sale negotiations with Teutsch Partners, LLC of Seattle, talks that could end with the real estate services company’s acquisition of the last two City-owned blocks immediately south of City Hall. Those talks will concern the Krites-Huff block just east of the Sound Transit Center, the Gambini block on South Division, where the AuburnArea Chamber of Commerce is, or both. Under the City’s rosiest scenario, Lewis said after the City Council authorized him to begin negotiating with Teutsch, it means “all the City blocks in Auburn’s catalyst area” will

have been sold within the next 60 days. Provided Teutsch acquires any or all of the properties, any project it pursues would have to fit within the framework of the downtown development code, which describes buildings of 5-7 stories with a retail-commercial base and what can be in them. Spencer Alpert, principal of Alpert International, the force behind Auburn Junction, the proposed 27-parcel, 5.39acre mixed-use, urban village between the Sound Transit Station, City Hall and Safeway, has a 30-day option to meet or exceed any offer Teutsch Partners makes to the City. According to Teutsch Partners LLC’s website, the company formed in 1987 and is one of the premium commercial real estate services and development companies in the Pacific Northwest, having experience as both owner-developer and tenant and owner advisor.

Valley Professional Firefighters Endorse John Partridge for Mayor The Valley Professional Firefighters, IAFF Local 1352, announced today that they are endorsing John Partridge for Mayor of Auburn. The Local received in-depth questionnaires and conducted interviews with all three candidates for Mayor. “While we were glad to hear from all three candidates, Councilman Partridge stood out. Our Political Action Committee, Executive Board and the membership at large overwhelmingly voted to endorse John,” said Jesse Mitchell, the Local’s political liaison. “John’s vision for public safety in Auburn is key to our support,” Union President Norm Golden said. “This includes filling the 18 budgeted police officer positions, as that directly effects the safety of both the citizens and our membership.” Dave Cook, a 30-year firefighter and longtime Auburn resident was proud to endorse Councilman Partridge. “As the Auburn Police and Fire Department Chaplain for 7 years, John understands the importance of public safety, and what it takes to make Auburn safe.” Councilman Partridge worked to continue the 2012 Fire Benefit Charge that maintains a high level service for the Valley Regional Fire Authority. He also is a 2013 graduate of FireOps 101, a one day training for elected officials that allows them to live a “day in the life of a firefighter.” John also served as the Auburn Police and Fire Department Chaplain from 1997 to 2004. Valley Professional Firefighters is an affiliate of the International Association of Fire Fighters and represents the 108 Firefighters, Captains, Battalion Chiefs and clerical staff that serve Auburn, Algona and Pacific.

charges, unable to shake his reckless ways, unable to stay clean. He had no one to turn to, nowhere to hide. “It’s very depressing,” Brummell said of his prison experience.”It gives you a chance to make an inner commitment to change. “I look back and see how a person doesn’t have anything realistic they would want to change to,” he said. “They don’t have a path, nothing to reach for, and that’s the way I was.” At a personal crossroads, Brummell, 49, recalls sitting in a King County Jail cell one day, staring into the cold eyes of a lengthy sentence for drug trafficking, when he had an epiphany. “The Holy Spirit came into my life, changed my heart and changed my life,” he said. “I had decided I had had enough incarceration.” Brummell served 102 months, half of them in community custody. Given a chance to begin a new life, Brummell found a home, a job and support from Grace Community Church. The congregation embraced him, and its leaders gave him a chance to succeed. To reciprocate, Brummell began to help others, volunteering his time and joining support groups to counsel individuals and families victimized by chemical dependency,

domestic violence and other problems. Returning to school to learn and to obtain the skills he would need to counsel professionally, Brummell completed an internship with the Recovery Centers of King County. He has since graduated from Faith Seminary of Tacoma with a degree in religion and is in his second year of graduate studies. He completes his master’s in counseling next month, which will net him a mental health credential to complement the state-certified chemical dependency professional credential he earned at Highline Community College. “It was my five-year plan to go back to school to become a drug and alcohol counselor,” Brummell said. “The journey was interrupted by my relapses, but I wanted to complete it.” Brummell has since opened his own practice in Auburn, Hope+Help Counseling, with a growing clientele in South King County. As someone who can personally relate to his clients, Brummell helps others secure housing, employment, schooling and other needs. He does it by mapping out a realistic, obtainable, step-by-step plan. Where drugs, violence or other turmoil have ripped apart individuals, children, parents and families, he offers counseling. “George listens attentively and then is able to speak in

a language, understand a vocabulary and navigate a system that is very unapproachable to many in need,” said Shelly David, a domestic violence legal advocate. “He uses his own life stories to make you understand that he is coming from a place of really ‘knowing’ how it is. “George is a great combination of heart for what matters (the people in need) and skill within the counseling/therapy systems. Without his special and spiritual forthrightness, the persons who need his voice would never access the proverbial ‘cup of cold water,’” David said. The need to reach out is even greater today. Brummell hopes to make a difference. “Identification is a huge component in helping anybody. You have to have that connection,” he said. “Once you do, there is a trust factor. … I’ve been there. You’ve been there.” His career is his passion, his purpose in life. He is thankful for the many friends and colleagues who helped him find his way. Giving back is vital. “It is important to me … because I know the pain, I know what it’s like to be caught in a web of hopelessness, whether it be addiction, unemployment or family issues,” Brummell said. “A person without hope is a sad individual. … To dig themselves out of their hole, they have to have hope. … You always need hope.”

Support Backus for Auburn mayor I’m writing to voice my support and ask other citizens of Auburn to join me in electing Nancy Backus for Mayor of Auburn. Nancy is the right candidate for the future of Auburn as we contemplate and select new leadership to continue moving forward as an inclusive community. Now, I’ve read all the letters to the editor stating that Auburn is heading in the wrong direction, and Auburn isn’t more than you can imagine. I completely disagree with those negative thoughts and opinions. I see Auburn as a community with character and huge potential for positive growth that has been well planned out and paid for without breaking the bank – like I’ve seen happen in neighboring communities. The reason my family lives

Deadline for letters to be considered for publication is 2 p.m. Tuesday. in Auburn is because it is a community that cares about its citizens, is safe, and focuses on providing quality events and opportunities for those willing to participate. It is leaders like Nancy Backus who have helped Auburn reach this present point in its journey.

Legislature must support dropout prevention program Under the Washington State constitution, providing an ample education for all students is identified as state government’s “paramount duty.” Last year, the state Supreme Court ruled that the Legislature had failed to meet that duty by persistently underfunding our schools. This year, the Legislature is responding. The

governor and lawmakers of both parties agree that upward of $1 billion in new funding needs to go to education in the budget they are now debating in Olympia. Curiously, however, some lawmakers want to actually eliminate funding for one of our state’s most successful education programs: Navigation 101.

Nancy Backus is a candidate who cares, listens and works with all – residents, businesses and others – to find creative solutions that meet the needs of all parties involved. Nancy wants this community to keep growing to provide job opportunities for future generations, so they can afford to live in Auburn and raise another generation in this great community. Auburn doesn’t need to be fixed. It needs to be furthered. Elect Nancy Backus as mayor to keep Auburn growing and being a quality community for future generations. – Terry Davis

Like many other people throughout the region, I caught the evening local news covering the May Day demonstrations. Peering up at a television inside Auburn’s Rainbow Cafe, I watched with mounting anger as for yet one more year, people, their faces swathed in bandanas or concealed under gas masks, hurled rocks and obscenities at police who had asked them to clear the streets. Bad enough. But hearing local media describe the provocateurs as “demonstrators” and “protestors” or even “anarchists” really fried my wig. I don’t buy any of that, no way, no how. And people who make their living with words should know better. I have always considered it one’s patriotic duty to raise a fuss from time to time in the face of wrong and injustice, to sound, in Whitman’s words, one’s “barbaric yawp” over the rooftops of the world. Like those civil rights protestors of the 1960s did, demonstrating for the simple right to sit at a lunch counter in Birmingham, Ala., and eat lunch. Or before them the women’s suffragettes, agitating for the right to vote. Or the abolitionists before that, demanding an end to human chattel slavery. But extending these terms to people involved in the May Day mayhem in Seattle grants them a status and a dignity to which they are not entitled. For one thing, it makes no distinction between the earlier, peaceful May Day demonstrations and the primitive stuff that developed as darkness came on. In a wider sense, it lumps them in with the women suffragettes and other brave souls who suffered cracked bones and worse, fighting for a better deal. It’s not acceptable. I think the more egregious error, however, in calling those guys “protestors,” was the total absence of anything on the ground remotely resembling a cause as evening came on.

Navigation 101 is an education program for students, scientifically proven to reduce dropout rates. Fifty-two percent of all middle and high schools here in Washington use Navigation 101 to help kids prepare for their future and graduate. Eliminating it now will make our state’s dropout problem worse.   We use Navigation 101’s curriculum and tools to help our students develop their core competencies

in career and life planning, postsecondary option decision making, college admissions, the financial aid process and more. The program also provides tools for counselors, teachers and administrators to track and monitor student and school performance. Through this comprehensive set of curriculum and tools, we have been able to significantly increase high school graduation and college enrollment rates. Some kids thrive in traditional classrooms and need very little help from specialized programs like [ more MY TURN page 6 ] expect to wreak havoc on people and or property. These guys call themselves anarchists. But I wonder if they have ever considered what real anarchy would mean. Something the writer G.K. Chesterton once wrote made an impression on me. Without rules, Chesterton argued, “life wouldn’t be any fun.” Without rules and standards, that is, everything that enables human beings to live together in relative harmony, everything we hold dear would be impossible. In the absence of rules, for example, there would be no sports, which certainly rely on them. Without agreed-upon standards of

behavior, no one would be safe at night anywhere. No, anarchy wouldn’t be any fun. And I suspect that had the Seattle police simply waded into the crowd and started clubbing and punching, the “anarchists” would have been the first to bitch about “police misbehavior.” Which, of course, would imply some sort of standard officers had failed to live up to. So please, let’s have no more nonsense about “demonstrators” or “protestors” or even “anarchists”. If we must call them something, I prefer the short, yet apt words of Mr. Tom Petty: “Rebels without a clue.”

are crucial in this debate. They need to hear from you. Please call the toll free legislative hotline today at 1-800-562-6000, and ask Rep. Sullivan and Sen. Fain to support continued funding for Navigation 101. Education is our paramount duty. In fulfilling that duty our leaders need to remember that when it comes to learning, one size does not fit all. Many of our kids need the help Navigation 101 offers. Let’s keep this vital program available to the hundreds of schools and hundreds of thousands of kids who depend on it.

Was there a change they had in mind? I didn’t hear about it. Were they upset about a particular law or policy? Must have missed that one, too. Indeed, I’m convinced after years of watching this play out that the rock throwers really don’t have a cause, unless one wants to call a cause showing up in Seattle every year on May 1 to vent one’s personal anger and disappointment with life by smashing things. You don’t bring gas masks unless you intend to pick a fight. You don’t bring weapons unless you

Navigation 101. But for many others, the targeted assistance provided by Navigation 101 is crucial. I have literally seen many kids stay in school, graduate, and move on to successful futures because of Navigation 101. It is hard to understand the rationale behind eliminating funding for this program. We know it works. Years of data prove that Navigation 101 helps students succeed, and our state Superintendent of Public Instruction’s office recommends and stands behind this program. We know it isn’t expensive.

Currently, nearly one in four of Washington’s students fail to graduate on time. Navigation 101 is designed specifically to address this crisis. Why would we take this resource away from school districts that are using it to change lives right now? The state Legislature is working on a new two-year state budget now. Your legislators, Rep.

Auburn metal band SIN will slug it out at the Battle for Mayhem Fest showcase at Studio 7 in Seattle on May 17. At stake, a showcase spot on the Sumerian Stage during this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, which swings into the White River Amphitheatre on July 7, featuring headliners Rob Zombie, Mastodon, Amon Amarth and Five Finger Death Punch. At the battle, three bands will be chosen – based on songwriting, originality, stage presence, crowd reaction and ability – to open the festival in front of thousands of metal mad fans. “It’s just about exposure, exposure, exposure,” SIN guitarist and vocalist Tim Berry said. “I’m hoping this will be our jump start. We’ve been looking for this kind of opportunity for a while.” “Even if we don’t win, we’re still hoping to just get seen,” drummer Arron Humphrey added. SIN got its start back in 2009, originally forming as BOSS, featuring Humphrey and guitarist Jacob Carroll. Initially the band struggled to find the right fit at bass and vocals. Enter Tim and Zac Berry, brothers who had been playing Auburn’s Open Rebuke with their father, Tim Berry Sr.

[8] May 10, 2013

A 7-year-old boy accidentally shot his 9-year-old sister on May 1, Auburn Police reported. The shooting happened around 9:30 p.m. at a home in the 4600 block of Auburn Way South. The gun, a 22-caliber rifle, was in the closet of a third sibling, who was not home at the time, police said. Medics transported the girl to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with non life-threatening injuries. “Only one shot was fired, and it was accidental,” Auburn Police Commander Mike Hirman said. “The gun belongs to the 14-year-old brother, who had recently taken the gun out shooting. The gun is normally kept in a locked case – and the mother showed the case to the officers – but the 14-year-old had apparently not replaced it.” Hirman added that no charges will be filed on the mother but police are checking with the juvenile prosecutor about the 14-year-old.

“Right before my dad retired I auditioned for these guys as a vocalist,” Tim Berry said. “Zac actually auditioned first and that kind of brought me down, because they were auditioning on my equipment. They liked what I did, and so for a while I was playing for both bands, that was a little crazy.” “We jammed around with a couple of singers but no one was really killing it,” Humphrey said. “These guys pretty much got in

when they tried out. It was kind of a ‘no-say, you might as well join’.” After a handful of shows as BOSS, the band shuffled its lineup, temporarily booting Carroll, before settling down and getting serious as SIN. “We kicked Jake out. We didn’t really like where it was going and thought it was him,” Berry said. “But it wasn’t,” Humphrey said. “So six months later Jake was back in.” This year SIN has been busy, playing eight shows

and building a rapid fan base. “We have pretty loyal fans,” Humphrey said. “We have a small fan base of loyal fans, we just need to get it bigger,” Berry said. Sonically, the band puts the pedal to the metal with its crushing, technical style, featuring the diverse vocals of the Berry brothers, able fretwork by Carroll and the steady foundation laid by Humphrey. According to Humphrey and Berry, the band is careful not to define its sound

or get stuck in any musical ruts, all while maintaining music over image. “A lot of the new stuff right now is, everything is about hipsters and scene kids,” Berry said. “It’s about image now, and we’re trying to bring back sound,” Humphrey said. “We haven’t labelled ourselves, and we think that’s the best way to go about it because then we can play with any band we want to,” Berry continued. “We basically call ourselves

experimental. We can play hardcore, we’re comfortable with thrash and speed metal and just straight-up, Devildriver style metal. But that was a big decision we had to make to not just play one style. That way we won’t be categorized.” The band has a couple of songs available for listeners at sinauburn, but plans are in the works for a full-length debut album. And, according to the band, listeners are in for a ride. “We’re breaking out of

our comfort zones and trying everything,” Humphrey said. “We’re trying everything but we’re not loyal to any one style.” “We jumble it up all the time,” Berry added. “Some bands will record a couple of really heavy albums, then change. We jumble it up all the time, so people are used to us doing anything.” Tickets for the multiband, May 17 Battle for Mayhem Fest at Studio 7 are $10 and available through the band, which can be contacted at www.facebook. com/SIN.AUBURN.

Auburn-based Budu Racing takes over the timing of dog race events, employing chips in the dogs’ bibs that record the precise time they cross the start line and cross back over the finish line. And there’ll be an artist to make a portrait of your animal. The City expects a crowd of about 15,000. “So far we’ve already got 360 registered for the dog trot, and last year we had 354 total,” Pachciarz said.

Pachciarz, coordinator of Petpalooza. “These races bring together a variety of animals for a race. You get to see a duck racing a goat, and there’s no telling who will win.” Try a great food court with nine food vendors. In addition to its usual menagerie of howling and growling, barking and baying, neighing and braying beasts, Petpalooza introduces some new and exceedingly cool stuff this year. Take Issaquah-based Animal Encounters’ live, hands-on, interactive bug zoo. That’s right, here it is, the real McCoy, the thing you’ve always dreamed of but feared might pass you by – a chance to touch real, multi-legged, antennawaggling creepy crawlies and learn stuff you pined to know about them but perhaps were too shy to ask. New this year will be the ArtRageous Zone, offering four, hands-on art opportunities, from paw-print activities that allow owners to use Fluffy or Fido’s paws to make a picture, to experimenting with metal art to make a pet tag for your critter.

Warmer weather means more outdoor time with Fido. Whether you’re walking through the neighborhood, attending a community festival or visiting your local dog park, here are some tips to make your canine-accompanied outings more enjoyable. Teach your dog to walk beside (not in front) of you in crowded areas. When greeting people (with or without dogs) always have your dog sit beside you. Ask permission to pet someone else’s dog and request that others do the same before approaching your dog. This will make your dog feel more secure and show others that your

dog is under control. If you visit the dog park, practice basic obedience (controlled walking, sit stay and come) on leash, before (and after) you let your dog play. This will help your dog be more

responsive to you when it’s time to go home, or if you need to intervene when a play session gets a bit too frisky. Remember, dog parks are not appropriate for all canines. Be fair to your dog, and with others, if his personality is not appropriate for these types of play sessions. Some dogs may become fearful, while others may become overly assertive, making the dog park visit stressful for all concerned. A good dog park experience is one where all the canines, and owners, have a good time. If your dog needs help with manners and/or appropriate body language around other dogs, enroll him in a basic dog obedience class where he will learn these skills in a controlled environment.

Auburn’s Thornquist snags SPSL 4A tennis title Auburn Junior Lauren Thornquist is the South Puget Sound League 4A girls singles tennis champion. Thornquist, who finished the regular season undefeated, swept through the competition at the league meet, beating Tahoma’s Maggie Turek 6-2, 6-0 to capture the title. Thornquist moves on to the district tourney, May 17-18 at the Capitol City Tennis Club in Tumwater. Also moving on to districts is Auburn Riverside’s doubles team of Carson Heilborn and Brenna Bruil.

Ravens soar into district tourney By SHAWN SKAGER

Auburn Riverside kept its postseason baseball dreams alive Tuesday with a 1-0 win over Bellarmine Prep in the first round of the West Central District III/ Southwest District 4 tournament. Playing the afternoon game at Russell Road Fields in Kent, the Ravens battled the Lions through seven innings, neither team able to capitalize and push a runner across the plate. With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, however, Auburn Riverside senior Justin Jacobs powered a Harry Stenberg change-up over the right fielder’s head, scoring pinch runner Brian Darby. “I was actually expecting a fastball,” Jacobs said. “From the moment I hit it, though, I knew it was over (the right fielder’s) head. I was hoping it would get over the fence, but it ended up just being a double. It got the job done. It feels awesome.” The loss put an end to Bellarmine Prep’s season. It also earned the Ravens another day of ball, a loser-out contest Wednesday against Heritage who lost to Kentwood 5-0 in its first-round playoff. Results of the game were unavailable at press time. Despite squeezing out the win against the Lions, Auburn

Scharer named SPSL 3A Track Athlete of the Year By SHAWN SKAGER

Coming into his final season as a prep distance runner, Chris Scharer had one thing on his mind. “I set placing on the podium at state in the 800 and just giving it my all as my only goal,” the Auburn Mountainview senior said. “Sometimes, in the middle of a race, you have a choice of running harder or just giving up.” This year Scharer chose to run harder. For his efforts, Scharer was named the South Puget Sound League 3A [ more scharer page 17 ]

Noah Freelund delivers during the Ravens first-round district tourney game against Bellarmine Prep on Tuesday at Russell Road Fields in Kent. Shawn skager, Auburn Reporter Riverside coach Jon Aarstad was content with the win. “That’s playoff baseball for you,” Aarstad said. “Both pitchers (Stenberg and Noah Freelund) went out and gave it everything they had, all the way down to the last pitch. That kid got tough when we got runners in scoring position. (It) seemed like he was able to bear down and get a little more on his fastball and get some spots. He got some key strikeouts in key moments. He struck out our best hitter a couple times in a

big situation. And quite frankly, there hasn’t been a pitcher all season long that has done that to us. “To get a win out of that … I’ll take it.” For the Ravens, the chance to still be playing is sweet. Auburn Riveside started off the season with a 1-4 record, before turning it around with a five-game winning streak and finishing third in the South Puget [ more ravens page 17 ]

May 10, 2013 [17] Track Athlete of the Year by the league’s head coaches. Now, with just two meets – this weekend’s SPSL 3A sub-district meet and next weekend’s West Central District III meet – before the Washington State 3A Track and Field Championships in Tacoma, Scharer looks to earn that spot on the podium. So far this season, Scharer has been on fire in the 800-meter race, his best event. In the Lions’ five SPSL 3A dual meets Scharer grabbed first-place in each, including a personal-best run of 1 minute, 58 seconds posted against Enumclaw on April 4, the

[ ravens from page 16] Sound League 4A. “We had a little higher expectations,” Aarstad said. “We didn’t play early as well as we would have liked to. We dropped a game or two that we felt we could have had. But the kids are getting some confidence going and playing some really good baseball right now and trying to improve every day.” For Jacobs, one of five seniors – including Austin Marty, Daniel Casanova, Michael Robinson and Christopher Minteer – the

state. He also grabbed first at the Kent-Meridian Invite and third-place at the 53rd Shelton Invitational. Among the highlights along the way for Scharer was his contribution in earning Auburn Mountainview’s boys squad its first ever SPSL 3A title, May 1 against Decatur. “That was pretty cool,” Scharer said. “It’s just kind of nice because Izaic Yorks (from Lakes High School, 3A state champ in the 800 and 1,600 last season) and all the other fast guys have graduated. It was exciting, it was really thrilling. I feel a little guilty, though. Before it was guys like Yorks winning all the distance stuff. Now it’s me.” Although not having to run against Yorks and his

1:50 times on a regular basis helps, the real credit for Scharer’s success this season goes to his offseason workouts. In addition to taking off the cross country season this past fall to concentrate on weight training, Scharer said he got a boost from his P90X2 workouts over the summer. “It was tough to give up cross country, but I wanted to do the weight training,” he said. “Plus I was little tired of the 5Ks and longer distances. So I stepped down as captain and turned over the leadership.” One bonus to taking off the cross country season for Scharer was a chance to gain more experience as a sports trainer. “I got to do football and

some soccer,” he said. “I got to see a lot of action. I’m going to go to WSU and hopefully major in athletic training and go on to medical school.” If he qualifies this year, it will be his third trip to the state 3A meet. Scharer placed 15th in the 1,600 last season and as a sophomore in 2011. The SPSL 3A sub-district meet begins Friday and finishes Saturday at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner.

key to the season was just coming together. “We started playing more team baseball and talking more in the dugout,” Jacobs said. Aarstad agreed: “We just kept grinding at it,” he said. “We didn’t have to have that many heart-to-hearts. The kids have been motivated from the beginning. We’ve had adversity that we’ve had to go through and get past. It’s been tough to battle through that stuff, but we have, and we’re right where we want to be.” One key to the team’s

success has been the pitching of Freelund, the team’s sophomore ace. In 32 innings of work, Freelund has compiled a stingy 1.97 earned run average and posted a 5-2 record with 24 strikeouts. “Noah has gotten better every outing,” Aarstad said. “He was really, really raw coming in, but he’s got great stuff. He’s learned and improved a ton as far as pitching and how to approach the game and hitters. He’s very coachable, like a sponge, continuing to improve and do what we ask him to do day in and day out.”

Offensively the team has keyed on the bats of their seniors, with Marty leading the way with a .500 batting average with 26 RBIs, 12 doubles and six home runs. Minteer has produced 19 RBIs and eight doubles, and Jacobs is hitting .426 with 13 RBIs and nine doubles. “All five contribute in their own different way,” Aarstad said. “Hittingwise, they’re our guys, they’re our leaders. They come out and get after it. Defensively, they’re also our leaders. They’re all kids who have baseball smarts.

ALSO: The Auburn and Auburn Riverside boys and girls track and field teams began competition in the South Puget Sound League 4A meet on Wednesday at French Field in Kent. The meet concludes Friday.

Published in Auburn Reporter on May 10, 2013. #785933. REISSUED NOTICE OF SEPA DETERMINATION MITIGATED DETERMINATION OF NON-SIGNIFICANCE City of Pacific – Stewart Road Roadway Improvements THE PROPOSAL: Stewart Rd is a critical east-west commercial and public transportation corridor providing local access to SR 167, a state highway providing regional access to I-5 in Tacoma/Fife, SR 18 in Auburn and I-405 in Renton. Its two-lane capacity is restricting movement of freight and goods and causing congestion. The project proposes to widen approximately 0.5 miles

of Stewart Road from the SR 167 ramps to Butte Avenue SE. The roadway will be widened from two lanes to five lanes including a two-way center turn lane. It will also include a 5-foot sidewalk on the south side of the road and a 10-foot multi-use asphalt trail with a planting strip on the north side of the road and curbs and gutters on both sides. Two hundred feet of the south leg of Thornton Avenue SW will also be widened to include one through lane in each direction and a center left turn lane. The northern leg of Thornton Avenue SW will be widened until the City’s proposed right-of-way limits so that it aligns with the widening of the southern side. A traffic signal will also be installed at the Thornton Avenue SW / Stewart Road intersection. Sidewalks, curbs, and gutters will be included with the improvements on Thornton Avenue SW. Other work will involve upgrading the existing water main along Stewart Road from Thornton Avenue SW, which will extend and connect to an existing water main along the east shoulder of the West Valley Highway. Additional work will include illumination, signage, utility relocation, and stormwater detention and conveyance system upgrades. This project will occur in two phases: * Phase I: State Route 167 to Thornton Avenue SW * Phase II: Thornton Avenue SW to Butte Avenue SE Lead Agency: City of Pacific Case Number: SEPA-12-002 Location of Proposal: The proposed project is located within the City of Pacific in the legal geographic area of Township 20N, Range 4E, Sections 1 and 2. It will occur on 0.5 miles of Stewart Road from the SR 167 north bound access ramps to Butte Avenue SE, about 300 feet east of the Union Pacific Rail Road tracks. SEPA DETERMINATION OF NON-SIGNIFICANCE: The Lead Agency for this proposal has determined that this project does not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment as conditioned. An environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C. 030(2)(c). This decision was made after review of a complete environmental checklist and other information on file with the lead agency. The information is available to the public upon request. This Mitigated Determination of Non-significance is issued under 197-11-350; the lead agency will not act on this proposal for fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of publication. MITIGATION MEASURES: To offset potential adverse environmental impacts, the applicant will implement the following mitigation measures: Earth. 1. A Department of Ecology General Permit to discharge Stormwater associated with

construction activity will be obtained. 2. The project will comply with the City of Pacific requirements for erosion and sediment control plans (ESC). These measures will include structural BMPs (silt fences, straw bale barriers, and sediment ponds) and nonstructural BMPs (planning and design, routine inspection and maintenance). Specific measures may include: a. Installing silt fences at clearing limits. b. Rock checking dams in existing ditches. c. Placement of catch basin inserts for existing catch basins. d. Regular inspection of onsite ESC measures and conducting remedial activities as soon as problem is discovered. 3. In addition, all work will be implemented consistent with the recommendations of the Geotechnical Engineering and Pavement Recommendations for the Extension of Stewart Road / Thornton Avenue Improvements Project, Pacific, Washington prepared by HWA GeoSciences, Inc. dated December 12, 2011. Air. 1. Watering the ground as needed before and during clearing and grading activities will control dust particles. Vehicles that are not being used in construction activities will be shut off. 2. Materials stored on site (e.g., soil and fertilizer) will be enclosed and/or covered when not in use. The applicant will employ best management practices in the use and storage of these materials consistent with all applicable regulations. Water. 1. As noted above, the project will install a comprehensive storm drainage system in accordance with the City of Pacific’s drainage requirements in effect at the time of the project application. 2. All work should be implemented consistent with the recommendations of Drainage Report (Draft) Stewart Road / Thornton Avenue Improvements prepared by Skillings Connolly dated May 12, 2011. 3. All work should be implemented consistent with the recommendations of the Wetland Mitigation Plan: Stewart Road Corridor Improvements Project prepared by Widener & Associates dated November 9, 2007. Environmental Health. 1. A Spill Prevention Control and Counter Measure (SPCC) plan will be required for this project. Noise. 1. Noise impacts associated with the construction phase of the project will be limited in duration consistent with the City of Pacific’s noise regulations. 2. All work should be implemented consistent with the recommendations of the Noise Report for the Stewart Road Corridor Improvements Project prepared by Widener & Associates dated March 24, 2006.

To place a Legal Notice, please call 253-234-3506 or e-mail

3. Measures to control noise impacts include limiting construction activity hours to between 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM and 7:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday (City of Pacific Municipal Code Section 9.26.050(A)(8)(a)). 4. To mitigate general noise impacts during the construction phases, measures such as locating stationary equipment away from receiving properties, limiting construction hours to avoid sensitive nighttime hours, turning off idling construction equipment, requiring contractors to maintain all equipment, and training construction crews to avoid unnecessarily loud actions near noise-sensitive areas should be employed. Light and Glare. 1.The street lighting shall be shaded and directed toward the ground to reduce glare and minimize light directed toward adjacent properties. Historic and Cultural Preservation. 1. If cultural or archeological objects are found during site preparation work, the Washington State Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation will be notified, and appropriate measures will be taken. 2. All work should be implemented consistent with the recommendations of the Cultural Resources Assessment for the Stewart Road Improvements Project prepared by Western Shore Heritage Services, Inc. dated February 1, 2006 as modified by the Cultural Resources Assessment – SHPO Concurrence Letter from the Washington State Department of Archeological & Historic Preservation (DAHP) dated May 25, 2006 and the Cultural Resources Assessment Letter from Widener & Associates to the DAHP dated May 10, 2011. PUBLIC HEARING: The Pacific City Council will not hold a public hearing. COMMENT/ APPEAL PERIOD: Any interested person may comment on the issuance of the Mitigated Determination of Non significance (MDNS) no later than 5:00 PM, May 24, 2013. Following the close of the comment period, the proposed MDNS becomes final on May 31, 2013 unless modified by the Lead Agency based on comments and information received. You may submit written comments to the undersigned prior to the date stated above. Appeal of the Determination may be made by submitting a notice of appeal, together with the grounds for the appeal and $1,000 appeal fee to the City. Date: May 10, 2013 Lisa Klein, Acting SEPA Official 100 3rd Ave. S.E. Pacific, WA 98047 (253) 929-1110 Published in Auburn Reporter on May 10, 2013. #787354.

New bike for David: APOA helps Special Olympian, devoted worker

David Delaune and his new bike, along with the APOA executive board, Police Chief Bob Lee, Assistant Chief Bill Pierson, Police Commanders Mike Hirman and Dave Colglazier and members of the mayor’s staff.

For the Reporter

Somebody stole David Delaune’s bike. When the Auburn Police Officer’s Association (APOA) learned about Delaune’s recent loss, it decided to help. Delaune, 30, has worked for the City of Auburn for


more than a year. He graduated from Auburn High School in 2000, volunteers at American Lighting and Nicolet’s Gardens and works at Camp Barachah. He also works part-time as a mail courier for the City. “David has a disability, but he doesn’t let that affect

F r a n C i S C a n H e a lt H S y S t e m

his love of biking, serving the citizens of Auburn and volunteering at the businesses he works with,” according to the APOA in a news release. “David had won first place in the annual Special Olympics at Joint Base Lewis-McChord three times with that bike. This year’s Special Olympics will take place June 1-2, and with the theft of his threetime first-place bike, David was really disappointed.” So the APOA purchased a new mountain bike for Delaune, complete with a lock. The APOA executive board joined police administration and members from the mayor’s staff to present the bike to Delaune at the Auburn Police Department on Wednesday. “David was absolutely shocked and thrilled, and assured us that the bike is exactly what he needs to take the gold medal again this year,” the APOA said. The APOA has been a part of the Special Olympics since 1990. It has been active in the Law Enforcement Torch Run with local fundraising to help athletes such as Delaune compete in local and regional competitions.
