State budget forces Communities in Schools to look elsewhere Renton School District steps in to help fill funding gap By TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

Communities in Schools of Renton has had to adjust its approach to funding, after the state eliminated close to $100,000 from the organization’s budget. On July 1, the agency that provides resources and support to impoverished students in Renton lost about $100,000 total in state funding. That money is equivalent to two CISR family liaison positions, which

would support about 1,500 students in the district, said Sue Paro, CISR executive director. A week ago, Renton School District officials notified Paro that the district would step in to replace the more than $90,000 shortage from one grant alone, with new funding. “This is very good news and we are very appreciative of the support of the RSD (school district),” Paro said. “They have supported CISR through our 19-year history along with the City of Renton.” More than $90,000 was eliminated through the loss of the Readiness to Learn grant, which CISR has received for more

than 15 years. The changes came on June 30, when the state budget was voted on and passed. “In that budget, the legislature took RTL funding along with several other programs’ funding, rolling it together and giving it to school districts under the Learning Assistance Program,” Paro said. “Renton School District received $1.2 million of new money to LAP. The Legislature designated up to 5 percent of this money to be for community-based organizations, like CISR.” The redirection of funds has triggered an evaluation of CISR’s funding resources, but Paro said the new arrangement also

creates opportunities for better service in the district. “It’s a good solution as long as the school district partners with community groups to address the students’ needs,” she said. “We’re the No. 1 dropout prevention (resource) in the country,” said Paro. “We address the learning needs as well as the social, emotional needs of students.” Without the district stepping into its “oh-my-goodness-help” situation, she said the state cut would have devastated their programs. Renton School District officials were unavailable for comment at press time.

Dancing the day away

The City Council on Monday night voted to defer a planned Basic Life Support Transport fee indefinitely. Presently, all transports to a hospital are free, but the council last year voted to institute the fee, scheduled to begin Sept. 1, as a way to help balance the city’s budget. However, during deliberation on what council member Rich Zwicker described as a “tough swallow,” the council indicated the city should review the fee prior to the effective date to determine if it was still necessary or if the revenue target was still valid. As the city looked into the budget this summer, they estimated the line item would bring in much less money than originally anticipated. On top of that, with revenues up and expenditures down this year, the administration recommended dropping the fee, as it was no longer needed to help balance the budget. According to spokesperson Preeti Shridhar, the city expected the fee to bring in approximately $350,000, but an analysis showed it would actually come in “significantly less,” at about $100,000 to $150,000. Looking at the numbers, Shridhar said “it didn’t make sense” to not postpone the fee. Fire Chief Mark Peterson said the aid car fee was an attempt to fill revenue shortfalls and help make up part of a $5 million hole in the budget. Peterson also said Renton was following in the footsteps of several of its neighbors, such as Bellevue, Mercer Island and Maple Valley, all of which charge for an aid car. [ more Aid car page 9]

New youth center to open in Tiffany Park By TRACEY COMPTON

Get involved

tcompton@rentonreporter.com

A dream project now a reality, the Renton Youth Advocacy Center at Tiffany Park is preparing to celebrate its grand opening. For John Houston, center director, it’s been a long but persistent journey to get the non-profit agency up and running to provide teens in the neighborhood with a safe place for hanging out, mentoring, tutoring and counseling. He is a long-time Renton resident and well-known high school basketball coach. Houston has built relationships with the City of Renton staff, including police and fire departments, and community members to bring this resource to youth in the Cascade area. Located in the former Tiffany Park Recreation Center, RYAC will hold its grand opening from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sept. 7, at 1902 Lake Youngs Way S.E., Renton. “I just feel good,” said Houston. “Being from here, I used these buildings when I was growing up and when they were open, we could go to the buildings.” The recreation center provide another focus beside other mischievous adventures in the neighborhood. “It gave me an option, it gave me a chance,” Hous-

Houston is seeking donations for this wish list of needs for the center: • a Microsoft Xbox • arts and crafts materials • water and juice boxes • healthy snacks • cash donations For more information, visit www.rentonyac.org.

IKEA donated the furniture in modern shapes and bold colors. There are books to check out, arts and crafts, snacks and beverages and specially selected video games to play on two large flat screen TVs. There’s both an air hockey table

for it.” Covorrubias moved to the the Tiffany Park neighborhood two years ago and was attracted partly because of the proximity of the park. “I mean, where’s a community park like this that has a basketball court, a tennis area, a play area for kids and now a recreation center,” he said.

facilities, in the way they’ve been tailored to teens. “I like kids; I like to see them succeed and I know that there’s a big void, there’s nowhere for them to go after school,” said Linda Wanless, a RYAC Board member. Wanless was born and raised on Talbot Hill, owns a home in Renton but lives and works in Kent currently with the school district there. “So I work with kids all day long, but that’s my passion too,” she said. RYAC has 11 board members, who volunteer their time, and about 75 volunteers ready to help with tutoring and other needs. The group is working on grants to fund the center now and has already received funds from private donations and grants. “I just want to make sure the kids have this place and they benefit from it,” said Houston.

Three arrested after six-hour standoff with SWAT team By Brian Beckley bbeckley@rentonreporter.com

A burglary in progress in the Chinquapin neighborhood Aug. 9 led to an hours-long standoff when Valley SWAT teams responded and surrounded the house. Three men were arrested in the incident, which occurred off Southeast 192nd Street. The street was closed for several hours Friday as police searched the house. Police were called around noon, when a neighbor saw a male suspect kick in the door of a nearby house. One suspect was located fleeing from the residence and was taken into custody. Another person of interest, the owner of a white SUVtype vehicle associated with the burglars, was also

arrested. A third and possible fourth suspect was believed to still be in the residence and the house was surrounded by Valley SWAT personnel, who were training in the area and arrived on the scene quickly. Police were in contact with the owner of the house, who was not home at the time of the incident, and confirmed that no one has permission to be in the residence. Repeated orders to “come out” on a public address system did not convince the suspect to exit the house; when no one came out, a robot and cameras were used to search the house before police made entry. Once inside, officers

heard movement in the attic crawl space and continued to order the suspect to come out. When no one exited, CS gas was placed into the area to encourage the suspect to come down; he eventually did so and was arrested. It was initially believed that two suspects were in the attic, but a search by SWAT did not locate a fourth suspect. The suspects are two men aged 20 and 21 from Seattle and a 32-year-old male who lives in Renton. They were booked into the SCORE jail on charges of felony investigation of burglary. A white SUVtype vehicle associated with the suspects has been impounded for evidence. Renton Police officers,

Myrtle had a gentle spirit, graceful presence, humor and wit which were enjoyed by all who came in contact with her.  Over the last few years, she was again greatly blessed as she moved to Stafford Suites, in Kent--where she made many new friends and marveled at her new extended family that “adopted” her in their actions and hearts.  She loved crafts and, over the years, made and gave away 1,000’s of Angels which now hang in homes/offices/rooms all over south King County.

Let’s ‘reboot’the library issue so we can move forward

The word I used a few weeks back to describe the fresh approach I hoped to bring to the paper and issues in Renton was “reboot.” I love the connotation that brings, especially in the Hollywood sense. To me, it means starting fresh with an old idea. It means not being locked into a timeline or narrative constraint created by the tales told before. For example, in 2007, Christopher Nolan rebooted the flailing “Batman” franchise after the previous director ran it into the ground by putting nipples on the Batsuit and amping up the Adam West-like cheese factor. Nolan kept the basics, but simply operated without the constraints created in “Batman and Robin,” which may not be the worst movie you’ll ever see, but I wouldn’t risk it. In using the word reboot, I hoped to conjure up those type of images and to be able to reset a few stories. For example, as we await the hearing examiner’s decision on the appeal from the group Save the Cedar River Library… Again!, I really think the library discussion needs to be rebooted. It has wandered well into the weeds and I think we have lost a lot of focus throughout the various and assorted campaigns that have surrounded it. This column will not, however, reveal my opinion on the location or design of the Cedar River Library renovation. I, like you, will use my votes this fall and in the future to speak for my opinion. But I do think there’s a few basic facts that we need to get back to. For example, it is not accurate or fair when people say things like “the city council/KCLS is not listening” to the people who have fought to retain the library’s location and are now fighting the design. The truth is both are and have been listening. It was the City Council that heard the outcry from the public and placed on the ballot the referendum about the library’s location. They listened to the public and responded. They did the same in asking KCLS for continuing open houses on the project. Then, KCLS listened when voters said they wanted the library over the river, which was not its plan. They have re-vamped their plans and now the library will stay in its iconic location over the river. Because KCLS listened when they didn’t have to. That vote last August was an advisory vote. It carried no real weight. KCLS could have simply said “yeah, that’s nice” and moved ahead with its plans. But it did not. Because KCLS listened to the residents. Then, after working with the budget - that voters approved - meant a smaller building, KCLS listened again when there was public outcry and brought a larger building back to the City Council, who also were listening and approved a bigger budget for the larger building. So to say that KCLS or the Council are not listening to the public is to ignore these basic facts. The truth is that many of the commenters simply believe they are not doing enough.

Library discussion straying from the main storyline [ Note from page 6] And that’s a valid opinion, but please stop saying people aren’t listening. I was actually at one of the open houses earlier this year and heard someone say KCLS wasn’t listening while said person was the one refusing to talk to KCLS. KCLS staffers were right there, asking for input, but because the person speaking did not like the format that was set up, he simply decided the library people “weren’t listening.” But the obvious truth was that he was choosing not to talk to them. I have also reviewed the votes taken on this matter. And the fact is that voters, by admittedly a very small margin, voted to join KCLS and, in doing so, approved “two replacement facilities.” I hear a lot of people saying they never voted for KCLS to take down and rebuild the current building, but voters literally did just that.

In fact, the opposition statement against annexation into KCLS stated “Renton Library will be moved and Renton residents will pay for replacement facilities,” meaning the voters knew going in what they were getting (or, at least, the info was out there). But after realizing that meant no more library over the river, residents spoke out and the council listened, calling for last year’s vote on location preferences, which (unsurprisingly) went overwhelmingly to the current site. Even in the advisory vote last year, it was again stated that the city was “required ... to fund and construct two new state-of-the-art libraries to replace Renton’s two existing libraries” and then called for a new library over the river but one that was not only “renovated” but “substantially renovated” at that. In recent discussions and comments, several people

have also referred to last year’s vote as though it weighed in on the location of the door, which KCLS has proposed moving to one of the river’s bank instead of keeping it midspan. Now, whatever your view on where the door should be (and I am not telling you mine), the vote did not at all discuss that. It spoke of location only. It did not speak to the size

of the building, the layout of the building or location entrances. It was not a vote to maintain the current building exactly as it is. It was, quite simply, an advisory vote on the location of the new library that voters said must be built. Again, I am not trying to push the issue in one way or the other on what should be done or where it should be done.

But this is an important issue for our city and our future and I just think it is important every now and again to take an honest look back at how we got here, so the discussion moving forward can continue to be constructive. So let’s reboot this conversation right here and move this story forward, without Batgirl, Robin or this idea that nobody is listening to the citizens to drag us away from the primary storyline.

not be suspect of each other’s motives.” Democrats, on the other hand, grin and bury it. Party members do get frustrated with antics of their chairman, Dwight Pelz. And lawmakers and influence peddlers of the Democratic stripe were flummoxed by Inslee on many occasions. But if any are worried about the governor’s vulnerability three-and-a-half years from now, they aren’t going to pipe it out to the public. Such self-inflicted damage would be tougher to overcome than an attack by a political opponent. They know unity right up through election time — even if some Democrats do so with gritted teeth — pays better dividends. Change takes time. As Inslee vacations with re-election far from his thoughts, Republicans are getting to ready to make a decision with Nov. 8, 2016, foremost in their minds.

Council drops aid-car fee [ Aid car from page 1]

In Renton, the cost for an aid-car transport would have been $600 plus $14 per mile. The fee would have been charged to insurance companies and no one would have been denied transport for lack of funding. Renton presently has one aid car. It is staffed by a two-man crew and is used to get to incidents, especially basic life support calls, quicker than an ambulance can. In his memo to the council, Mayor Denis Law said the revenue projection had

to be revised as it would be “substantially less” than projected and recommended the effective date be deferred. Peterson said on top of that, the fire department would prefer the aid car service to remain free. “Ultimately, we made our recommendation to the mayor,” he said. The council on Monday voted unanimously to defer the fee indefinitely. Reach Editor Brian Beckley at 425-2553484, ext. 5050

Mayor Denis Law presented Pastor Kirby Unti with the Key to the City during the Aug. 5 City Council meeting, following a well-attended reception in Unti’s honor prior to the meeting. Unti served as pastor at St. Matthew’s for more than 30 years. Brian Beckley, Renton Reporter

Help give kids the tools they need to succeed in school

(BPT) - Take a moment to consider this alarming fact: Each year more than 1 million American teens fail to graduate from high school, according to the Editorial Projects in Education Research Center. The consequences of this staggering statistic are felt not just throughout their lives, but also across our nation. A host of research shows that dropouts are more likely to develop health problems, live in poverty and be victims of crime. The problem impacts our economy as well, costing as much as

$209 billion in lost taxes and higher government expenditures over the lifetimes of those who fail to graduate, according to research by the Teachers College, Columbia University, Center for Benefit-Cost Studies of Education. “Students do not fall behind because they lack ability, intelligence or initiative,” says Jim Clark, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). “Often, it’s the lack of access to basic school tools and quality after-school programming that holds children back. Access to those tools can

help ensure they achieve academic success and, eventually, a great future.” Now, you can help, too. Through September, BGCA’s annual Tools for Backto-School campaign offers two ways to put much-needed school supplies in the hands of Club youth. First, take the quiz at GreatFutures.org/BacktoSchool, where right answers earn supplies for Boys & Girls Clubs. You can also drop off school supplies such as notebooks, pens, pencils and backpacks in collection bins at Disney Stores, Michael’s and Staples. Local Boys & Girls Clubs

will distribute the donated supplies to Club members in their communities. “Our annual supply drive is just one of the ways our more than 4,000 Clubs help our Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for a postsecondary education and a 21st-century career,” Clark says. “We are grateful for the public’s support of these efforts.” To learn more about Boys & Girls Clubs of America, visit www.GreatFutures.org.

Pint-sized play, large-scale swings delivers fun [ golf from page 5]

Wendy. “It’s an easy way to be competitive with one another.” At the Family Fun Center, there’s a castle, cartoon-ish schoolhouse, a replica of the Eiffel Tower, waterfalls, pools, miniature houses and other obstacles to navigate. “Miniature golf is about as high golf competitive as I get,” said Daniel. Pasquel Terwillegar,

assistant general manager at the center, said staff has noticed “couples or dates often golfing” at the fun park. Typically Friday and Saturday evenings are the busiest. “It’s fun, nostalgic, and has a little competitive edge, while still promoting teammanship,” wrote Terwillegar via email. But if the miniature version of the game isn’t your T:4.8” idea of a good time, head

to Maplewood Golf Course and Driving Range to take a few full-size whacks. There, couples can choose from one of the 30 driving range stations and purchase a $25-card, good for $30-worth of golf balls. It’s a bring-your-own-clubs affair or they can be borrowed from the Maplewood Pro Shop. The price break down is 20 balls at $2, 40 balls for $4, and 70 balls for $7.

Now the restaurant has a steady stream of diverse customers of all ages, all seeking the Vietnamese soup, with veggies, meat or seafood. Dinner and weekends are their busiest times. The most popular dish is the pho combo or Pho Dac Biet. Kelly has grown up eating practically all of the dishes on the menu at some point. “Everyone loves pho now,” she said. “It’s like getting really popular. It’s different than other types of food, so people find it really interesting to eat.” Pho, pronounced phonetically like ‘fah,’ is a noodle soup, with herbs, in a broth. At Pho Shizzle, customers can choose to have the soup vegetarian-style, with tofu, seafood, chicken or beef. “There’s a lot of variety to that,” Kelly said. Pho Shizzle’s menu also includes appetizers, of spring rolls and dulings; prawns and terriyaki; veggie dishes or Chay and

Ammunition stolen from detective’s car during car prowl at theater Ammunition for a Glock handgun was stolen from a Seattle Police detective’s SUV last week during a series of vehicle break-ins at or near the Regal East Valley Theaters. Four vehicle break-ins occurred sometime on Aug. 7 or early Aug. 8 but were all reported after midnight on Aug. 8 at the theaters and at the Spot Tavern nearby on East Valley Road. The front passenger window and the rear driver’sside window were smashed on the detective’s 2007 Cadillac Escalade. The stolen items were contained in a bag in the back seat. Inside the bag were a Seattle Police Department portable radio, a full-sized Glock magazine with 15 rounds of .40 caliber rounds, three red and blue LED traffic wands and three small hand-held flashlights. An iPod and paperwork inside the bag also were stolen. The detective’s car was searched for fingerprints and other evidence. Men’s clothing and two backpacks belonging to a Kent man were stolen from a 2013 Toyota Tacoma. The loss was estimated about $450. The front passengerside window was broken. In the third theater break-in, tools and about $500 worth of CDs and DVDs were stolen from a 2011 Land Rover. The vehicle’s rear passenger-door window was shattered. In the break-in at the parking lot at the Spot Tavern, an iPhone and charger, valued at about $570, were stolen from a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado. The driver’s window was smashed.

That’s not the place for that A merchant at the Renton Transit Center was “appalled and offended” Aug. 1 when a man urinated on South Second Street while leaning on the merchant’s pickup truck. The suspect, a 28-yearold Bremerton man, was located nearby and was positively identified by the merchant. The man was on the traffic side of South Second when he urinated. An officer took photos of the large wet patch on the asphalt. Determining there was

Drunk teen forces the issue A 16-year-old girl was finally taken into custody Aug. 3 after she persisted in telling an officer she was drunk. The officer was at an apartment complex in southeast Renton investigating a possible burglary and domestic violence. The girl walked up and inserted herself into the investigation of what the officer told her was a serious crime. Without prompting, she said, “I don’t want you guys to think anything but obviously I’m drunk.” The officer asked the girl to not talk with them and to leave. She told the officer, “You guys are kind of rude.” Frustrated, the officer told her it was not a good idea to talk to a police officer when she’s intoxicated. She mocked the officer and yelled over him. He told her if she didn’t leave, he would arrest her. She responded, “I really don’t care,” and she refused to

leave. She displayed the signs of intoxication, including the smell of alcohol, and was arrested for minor in consumption of alcohol. She played games with the officer over her name. Her mother told the officer the girl gets drunk and high at a neighbor’s apartment. She was released to her mother and the case referred to the King County juvenile prosecutor.

Man makes threats at drive through A 42-year-old Seattle man was arrested after he made verbal threats against people waiting in line at a pharmacy drive-through July 29 on Rainier Avenue South. He would knock on windows, demanding food and money, and told one customer he was going “to blow your brain out.” An officer located the man nearby; he had been trespassed from the same pharmacy less than a year ago. He was booked into the SCORE regional jail for investigation of seconddegree trespass.

But, what she didn’t pay for was nearly $400 in cosmetics she had placed in her purse and a decorative box while her hands were concealed under the beanbag chair. She told the arresting officer she thought the clerk would find the items in the box, but her intent was to steal the cosmetics concealed in her purse. The officer found $58 in cash in her purse and Police blotter medical marijuana, which was held in evidence at Renton City Hall because the SCORE regional jail doesn’t book marijuana with a person’s property. She was booked for investigation of third-degree theft at SCORE.

This month’s featured advertiser… Teeth are Optional! Yes, its’ true. As much as I hate to admit it as a Dentist, I’ve never heard of

ANIMAL HEALTH CARE OF RENTON

anyone starving because they didn’t have teeth. With that said, Quality of Life can certainly be compromised! Teeth are very similar to your car. When everything is in order, you can get a lot of trouble-free use out of them. When you begin to hear that little sound, or sense something is wrong, it usually is. If addressed right away, you are only looking at a relatively small bill, left to fester, and the cost grows dramatically. It’s funny, we don’t hesitate to take our car in for its’ recommended checkups and servicing, yet we often put off the dental visit, which can be a costly mistake. My challenge to you is to ask yourself a simple question. What is the better investment? Looking after a car which, on average you keep a few years? Or your teeth which you can keep a lifetime, if you want to continue to smile, chew, laugh and kiss the way you do today? Your smile is a great investment; let us help you get back on track,
