Critics of the Joint American-Vietnamese Memorial in Veterans Memorial Park insist they have nothing against putting one up somewhere else in Auburn. Just not in the Auburn park, where a memorial to the five branches of the U.S. armed forces already exists. And where, they INSIDE: American/ argue, the flag of any Vietnamese Memorial other nation, even should include all althe flag of a nation lies, writes Jesse Jose, that hasn’t existed page 5 since 1975, should never fly.

Green River Homes basks in $11 million renovation By ROBERT WHALE

Before a fall on the job saddled her with debilitating injuries, Sandy Goodenhow had been a controller at a board assembly factory in California. Abruptly unable to work, short on rent money and in danger of becoming homeless, Goodenhow moved to Auburn 13 years ago. She opened a daycare center here, but when work proved impossible because of her injuries,

she moved into King County Housing Authority’s Green River Homes on M Street Southeast. Last year KCHA temporarily relocated Goodenhow and other residents from the housing complex to work on $11 million worth of renovations to housing that was really showing its age. She moved back in last December. Confined to a wheelchair, Goodenhow was [ more HOMES page 3 ]

Metal Church back with Ronny Munroe on the mic Local metal stalwarts celebrate new album with Liberty Theater showcase on Aug. 30 By SHAWN SKAGER

Back in the 1980s, before Nirvana and its ilk made grunge the Pacific Northwest’s main musical import, heavy metal ruled the land. Among the myriad of metal bands plying the

Seattle club scene – as well as the bars, skating rinks and all-ages venues of South King County – was Metal Church. Now the band is back, with a new album, “Generation Nothing”, scheduled to drop this fall on Body of Work and Rat Pak records. T:4.8” A reunion show is slated

for Aug. 30 at the Liberty Theater in Puyallup. Formed in San Francisco in 1980 by guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof, Metal Church soon found itself part of the burgeoning Washington metal scene, with Renton-native David Wayne on vocals, Kirk Arrington on drums, Duke Erickson on bass and Craig Wells on guitar. After releasing a self-titled debut album in 1984, and

singing with a major label, the band broke out of the local scene. “I was such a fan of that first album, singing it at the top of my lungs driving around in my car,” current Metal Church lead singer Ronny Munroe said. By 1986, the band was a national act opening shows for Metallica. The band broke up in 1994 but reunited in 1999. Then it went on hiatus again. Enter Munroe. Munroe, a Fife native, had been kicking around in local bands in the Puget Sound region since the late 1970s. “I wanted to be a rock star from a very, very young age,” Munroe said. For more than two decades Munroe paid his dues on the local club circuit, performing in bands such as Moxi, Paladin, Hammer and Far Cry. In the early 2000s Munroe stepped to the next level, hooking up with Vanderhoof and Arrington. “I originally tried out for Kurdt’s solo band, Vanderhoof,” Munroe said. “But of course, my being a huge Metal Church fan like everyone else, I was like ‘Dude,

Metal Church, in its current incarnation features, from left, Ronny Munroe, Jeff Plate, Kurdt Vanderhoof, Rick Van Zandt and Steve Unger. The band will release its 10th studio album this year. courtesy photo how about Metal Church? Why don’t we do Metal Church?’ A couple of weeks later, Kurdt called me and said, ‘OK, you want to do Metal Church, let’s do it.’” Beginning with 2004’s “Weight of the World,” Munroe and Metal Church put out three albums in the next four years. Although Metal Church again called in quits after in 2008, Munroe kept busy, releasing two solo albums: “The Fire Within” and “Lords of the Edge.” A third, “Electric Wake,” is due out on Rat Pak records in November, and touring with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. “Metal Church is my main focus and will be for years to come, and my solo project,” he said. “So those are my main focuses. Will I do other projects? Yes, because I need

to do that to survive. But I’m not searching any longer to be in a big name band. I’m home.” This year, when Vanderhoof came calling, Munroe got the chance to come home. “We’ve been waiting around for the time to be right,” he said. “Finally, Kurdt called me up and said, ‘Hey I’m really starting to think about Metal Church again.’ ” To celebrate the release of “Generation Nothing,” the band’s 10th studio album, it will play a show Aug. 30 at the Liberty Theater in Puyallup, with Taist of Iron, Mechanism and Sin Circus in support. “It’s a hometown show. I used to watch movies there,” he said. “We promise to put on a really good show for everyone” Munroe said.

Goodenhow even let people tour her apartment. Claude DaCorsi, director of Capital Construction for KCHA, said that the project was part of the Authority’s strategy to preserve and upgrade its entire portfolio of public housing. “Green River Homes was very well maintained over all those years, but it got to the point where the units became pretty tired, pretty outdated, and it was time to do a major renovation,” DaCorsi said.

But for almost an hour and a half Monday night, before a Council Chamber full of veterans, the yeahs and the nays did something more and more rare these days — listened with respect, and without a single hard word, to the things people with whom disagreed to the point of shedding tears had to say. Twenty-five members of VFW Post 1741 in Auburn voted June 25 on whether to support the joint memorial in Veterans Memorial Park, said Frank Bannister, a member of the Post, and all but one said no. “We believe there should be no private memorials on any public property whatsoever,” Bannister said. “Such

2012, the water distribution system was undersized and lacked adequate fire flow. Floor plans were outdated, as were plumbing, heating and electrical systems in the units. “We were fortunate enough to put together a financing program to allow us to come in and do this work. Originally, we had 60 units here, and one was used by the YWCA as a training center for after-school homework, so we actually took that unit and converted it into a five-bedroom unit and reduced the number of units to 59.” Many of the units had to be stripped down to the studs and rebuilt.

a memorial will drive many veterans from Memorial Park.” He went on to name alternative actions organizers of the joint memorial could perform to truly thank Vietnam veterans. Among these were: visit the park on Veterans and Memorial days and wave American flags; pledge allegiance to the flag; thank veterans for their service; work with Boy Scouts who place flags on veterans’ graves; help homeless veterans in South King County; and provide rides to veterans who need transportation to medical appointments. “All of these things will truly be appreciated by every veteran in this community and help them heal the wounds, through the practice of American patriotism,” Bannister said.

The result is living spaces with modern, attractive, easy-to-maintain fiber cement exterior siding. Gables over front doorways embellish the former utilitarian–looking, cabin-like structures. Renovated apartment interiors have new doors, windows, cabinets, countertops, wall finishes and floor coverings. The grounds have been improved, too, with the installation of new playground equipment suitable for toddlers and older children. The basketball court has been replaced. The property has been re-landscaped with new trees, shrubs, ground cover, and grass. Curbs and sidewalks have been replaced, and the stretch of L Street that runs through the development has been resurfaced. New water and gas lines have been installed. The project was financed with a combination of federal low-income housing tax credits and tax-exempt and taxable financing supported by the federal government’s projectbased Section 8 rents.

Others threw down their rifles and ran away in the heat of battle, “putting my people in harm’s way.” “I support their desire to have a memorial, but I don’t believe that Auburn Memorial Park is the correct place for them,” Taylor said.

[ PACIFIC from page 1 ] since February when former Mayor Cy Sun fired City Clerk Patti Kirkpatrick. Sun was recalled from office in a June special election. “We got quite a few applications and we’ve narrowed it down to three that I thought were very good candidates,” Guier said. Guier added that she was hopeful that one of the candidates would be suitable to present soon to the City Council for confirmation. On the public works front, Guier said, the combination of interim Public Works Director Ken Barnett and part-time Engineer Jim Morgan is answering the needs of the City so well that she may ask the council to stick with them. “The two of those working together really fills the need for that department,” she said. “I’m actually thinking about going to council and asking them to create

a public for works manager position, which I think Ken would have the qualifications – to be a manager for that department, not a director. With Jim Morgan as a part-time engineer, that really gives us what we need in that department. It’s really a win-win for us.” Guier added that she expects to present the council with some financial numbers at Monday’s meeting. “We’re getting there, we’re getting really close,” Guier said. “I had asked the interim finance person from the temporary agency and our current Finance Director (Betty Garrison) to work together and have some tentative numbers on the fund balances for the departments by next council meeting. It’s pretty aggressive, but I think it’s do-able, and they’re working very hard at doing that.” The City Council meets at 6:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall.

South Koreans, they go to that memorial.” Vietnam veteran Richard Wright noted the bitter realities of a war lost and the lingering pain of veterans who were treated like losers upon their return to the United States. “Putting another flag up there, it’s not healing. That’s 40 years of misery and memories. Not good,” Wright said. Memorial supporter Lan Phan Jones introduced herself as the daughter of a South Vietnamese soldier

who fought for his country his entire life. “I am very proud of him, for what he did for the country, although we lost the country, and America lost the war. I worked with a lot of American Vietnam veterans. They were so sad, they had a bad feeling about how the government and Americans treated them when they came back home. I know how the Vietnam veterans feel when we lost the country. So that’s why I would like to do something to make them feel better,” Jones said.

Auburn man convicted of assault for 2010 shooting Reporter staff

A jury last week convicted a 20-year-old Auburn man of two counts of seconddegree assault with firearm enhancements for his involvement in a shooting on July 3, 2010 in Auburn that seriously injured two women and a man. Gustavo Gallegos, who was 17 at the time at the time of the shooting, was prosecuted as an adult. The jury returned a guilty verdict against him on the assault charges in connection with the two injured women but found him not guilty on a third charge

of assault for the male victim. Prior to trial, Gallegos pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. Gallegos faces a sentence of 7½ years in prison at his sentencing in October. A co-defendant, Gallegos’s 15-year-old brother, was charged and convicted of assault in Juvenile Court and will remain in custody until his 21st birthday. The Auburn Police Department investigated the case, and Deputy Prosecuting Attorneys Steve Herschkowitz and Wes Brenner prosecuted it.

Joint war memorial should be all inclusive

In reference to your front page story (“Veteran pushes for joint war memorial,” Auburn Reporter, Aug. 16), I, too, have something to say. I am a Vietnam-era veteran, a U.S. Navy retiree and a member of the VFW Post 1741. I, too, have laid my life on the line for this country, and if called upon to do it once more, I’ll heed my country’s call without hesitation. And I, too, have lived in this town for over a decade now and have grown fond of this little town. I do not agree with this Joint American/ Vietnamese Memorial. First of all, though the building of it will be funded by a private special interest group, and not by taxpayers, it will be built in a public park owned by us taxpayers. And from what I understand, the maintenance of this memorial, when built, will be shouldered by the City of Auburn, which is also us, the taxpayers. So, this proposed joint war memorial is not exactly a privately-funded idea. It only appears that way. The City of Auburn will be left holding the bag in the end. That money could be better spent on fixing roads and other worthy projects in improving our town that would benefit all residents of Auburn, not just a special interest group. Second, why only a joint memorial with the Vietnamese? Why only with these people? From what I understand, from Mayor Lewis information, this idea was “brought” to Auburn by the state VA director. That’s fine. But what about other allies who fought alongside America’s warriors in other wars? Like my Filipino ancestors, who volunteered and fought bravely with American soldiers, not only in World War II, but also in Korea during the war there, and in World War I in Europe. And their loyalty to America has

Realtors support Backus for Mayor I’ve been fortunate to know Nancy Backus for a number of years and am impressed by her level of commitment to the City of Auburn. In addition to her 10 years on City Council, Nancy is heavily involved in a number of charitable organizations. I work as a local real estate broker and am a member of Seattle-King County Association of Realtors. The Governmental Affairs Committee reviewed this race, interviewed the candidates and by supermajority vote gave an early endorsement to Nancy Backus for mayor of Auburn. Her focus, her energy and her heart are all in the right place. Nancy Backus is the right person at the right time to lead Auburn forward. It is with pride that I give my support and vote to Nancy Backus for Mayor. I encourage you to do the same. – Joe Bauman

Recently, Yolanda had a booth at the Auburn Days celebration, where she spent many hours responding to questions and concerns from the citizens of Auburn. Her capabilities, experience and compassion are attributes that our Auburn City Council needs now. As a member of the City Council, Yolanda will be your “voice” and continue to be the “high achiever” that she has been in her personal and business careers. Please join me in supporting Yolanda CortinasTrout in her bid for Auburn, City Council, Position 4. – Patricia Baggett [ more letters page 6 ]

Thanks to all during my campaign I would like to say a very special thanks to all of my supporters and voters out there who believed in me and gave me their support and vote in this year’s primary. I would like to thank my family, friends and supporters from surrounding local cities/communities. I also would like to thank all the City personnel who have given their time to answer my questions and concerns. I will continue to work with the mayor’s office and the City Council members to make Auburn a greater city. There is work that still needs to be done. I urge every citizen to find it in their heart to be able to help one another and work with our elected officials to fix the problems that our city faces now and in the future. Get involved. A voice heard is a voice of influence, but a voice not heard is a voice of muteness. Be a voice of power, not a complainer. Auburn citizens, organizations and business owners, this is an important time for the City of Auburn, with a new mayor to be elected and some new faces running for City Council. Get out and voice your standpoint. Just remember, you have to serve in order to lead. A word of appreciation for all those hardworking City managers/directors and employees who I have gotten to know and meet and who have made the city what it is today. Keep up the great work. I will ask the people who have taken my campaign signs to please return them to me by calling the number on the sign. I will gladly

come and pick them up. I wish all the candidates the best of luck in this upcoming election, and may the best qualified candidate win. Time for change and accountability. – Thomas Sauers

Of course, it’s ‘not racial’ Regarding Karen Shepherd’s letter (“Our racial unity in ruins”, Auburn Reporter, Aug. 2): After spending considerable space castigating those who would ruin “the racial unity we’ve all worked so hard to attain,” she then goes on to ruin it herself. She notes “statistically, it is young men who commit the vast majority of crimes,” then goes on, “I know it was so with me when a young man … flung me to the ground …” If this was

meant to bolster those statistics she claimed, it might have been a good point. Unfortunately, in the midst of this, she tells us it was a young “Pacific Islander,” as if this assignation or description had any bearing on the point she was trying to get across. In fact, it had the opposite effect. She goes on to imply that, because of this incident, she can also be described as a “purseclutching, door-locking white grandmother,” but, of course, it’s not racial. If it’s not racial, why in the world inject what race, nationality, background, etc. that her attacker might have been or might have looked like? If it’s not racial, is she implying she now turns into this paranoid, elderly person whenever she sees any young man? Somehow I don’t get the impression that she’s frightened to death of all young men. Perhaps only those pesky “Pacific Islanders,” but, of course, it’s “not racial.” Oh, and Roderick Scott, whom Ms. Shepherd alludes to in her story, and how everyone ignored this story. What she failed to mention was that Mr. Scott was immediately arrested for this shooting. He didn’t get to claim, “self-defense” or “stand your ground” or anything else, and simply go on home that same day. A marked difference from the Zimmerman case. I’m sorry, Ms. Shepherd, that you are tired of being called a racist. That’s not a pejorative that has ever been ascribed to me, regardless of whose presidential policies I disagree with. – Jean Bolton

Job gets done sans goats I recently sent a letter reporting the neglect of mowing the tall grass at the foot of Mill Pond Drive. No one seemed to want

to take responsibility. Well, good news. Someone did take responsibility, and as of Aug. 12, it has been mowed. I would like to thank whoever stepped up to the plate and got the job done. Was it you, Mayor Lewis, who told the City to do it, or was it the apartments on 47th, which we were told own the property? I do know for sure it wasn’t the Lakeland Hills Home Owners Association. They made it very clear it was not their responsibility, and they would not have any part in maintaining the landscaping, even though it is the north entrance to Lakeland Hills. Seems strange to me. A big thank you to whoever you are that got the job done. Sure glad we didn’t have to rent those goats. – Faye Cunningham

Too many fireworks, too much noise Regarding fireworks noise: I reside in the Riverwalk community located about a mile south of the Muckleshoot discharge area. Beginning about a week before Memorial Day through Independence Day, we are subject to ongoing blasts, building to heavy action every weekend. I do not agree with (Auburn Police) Commander David Colglazier’s report (“Police report: Fireworks didn’t carry as much of a bang”, Auburn Reporter, Aug. 2) that the “action was lighter this year.” I am more inclined to agree with Dr. Jim Brass’ letter (“Fireworks are not what the Fourth is all about”, Auburn Reporter, July 12). Perhaps the Muckleshoots could become better neighbors and relocate the fireworks business and discharge area out of Auburn to the east. What position

do our City leaders take on this matter? I also would like Commander Colglazier to visit us on the next July 4. – Dick Miller

Clarification Thom Stoddert inadvertently stated that Medicare has a five-year looking back window for benefits eligibility (“Elderly veterans exploited”, guest op, Auburn Reporter, Aug. 16). Medicare is a benefit for which eligibility is contingent upon, and part of, Social Security benefits. The looking-back window of five years is for Medicaid payment. Medicaid is a federally subsidized program that is managed by the State of Washington. Expert assistance with VA benefits is available free of charge from any one of many VA accredited service organizations such as the VFW or American Legion. If a so-called veterans advocate tries to charge a fee for services, please call the VA inspector general or the state attorney general. The VA allows attorneys to charge a nominal fee on appeals only. Seitz wins poetry contest: In front of a crowd of enthusiastic poets and followers, Roy Seitz accepted the first-place prize at the Open Mic Poetry Contest at the Auburn Avenue Theater last Sunday. The contest, sponsored by the Auburn Days festival, also featured a variety of Poets on Parade. Seitz, from Seattle, is a Vietnam veteran, poet and life coach. He is the author of “Right Here, Right Now”. Seattle’s Raul Sanchez was second, and Covington’s Eva Bennett was third. Each winner took home a basket full of poetry-related items. Taking honorable mention honors were: Carol Coggin, Algona; Cindy Hutchings, Auburn; and Robinson Bolkum, Everett. They received tote bags of poetry books.

remained steadfast and strong, and got passed on down from one generation to another … like my own generation.

America? They also deserve this kind of memorial, don’t they? What about those South Korean soldiers who also fought bravely alongside America’s warriors during the war there? Surely they also deserve this kind of joint memorial, don’t they? A joint memorial for America’s allies in other wars should also be “brought” to Auburn to honor their war dead. Third, if our town is going to build a joint memorial park, by all means, let’s build it. But let’s include all the loyal allies who have joined America’s soldiers in bravely fighting for America’s ideals and way of life. Let’s not leave anybody

out. And, let’s fly the Star and Stripes above all other national flags. We, veterans and members of the VFW Post 1741 fought and laid our lives on the line primarily for this flag. No other flags were relevant to us then; no other flags are relevant to us now. Fourth, if supporters of this joint American/ Vietnamese Memorial are adamant in building this memorial, let them build it on a privately-bought land and maintain it with their private funds.

AUBURN GOLFERS TAKE STATE TITLES Auburn’s Tyler May, pictured right, captured his third straight Special Olympics state championship with a 3-over 75 at the Walter E. Hall Golf Course in Everett last Saturday. May’s round included a chipin birdie and two eagles. Cole Buchanan, pictured left, won the 9-hole competition. Buchanan, a sophomore-to-be at Auburn Mountainview High and a member of the Lions’ golf team, shot a 56.

Trojans excel at prestigious national wrestling camp By Shawn Skager

The shirts bear a simple message: “I Did It.” But for Auburn grapplers Drew Aplin, a sophomore, and juniors Sam Lindsay and Bailey Minnar, the blackand-gold T-shirts earned by completing the grueling, two-week J. Robinson Intensive Training Camp are much more than mere cloth with lettering on them. They symbolize their commitment and dedication to the Trojans wrestling program. “It was a weight off me when I got the shirt,” said Minnar, who plans to compete at 152 pounds this season. “That’s what I was worried about the whole camp, so it was a huge stress reliever, like I didn’t have to worry about anything after that.”

Three Auburn grapplers, from left, Drew Aplin, Sam Lindsay and Bailey Minnar, recently completed the grueling J. Robinson intensive wrestling camp, earning the coveted “I Did It” T-shirt. shawn skager, Auburn Reporter To earn the shirt, the Trojan trio participated in the camp, run by J. Robinson, from July 28-Aug. 10 at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Ore. Robinson is

a five-time national collegiate wrestling coach of the year at the University of Minnesota. While the camp was in session, the young men woke up at 6:30 every morning to be

ready for their first running or weight training event of the day. By the 11 p.m. lights out, campers had been through more than eight hours of

intensive mental and physical training. “At the end of the day you’re just thankful that you get to go to bed,” said Lindsay, who plans to compete at 195 pounds this winter. “It’s not like the Army, where you have to stay up for hell week, or Navy SEAL training. But it’s hard and it’s tough. You try to sleep between every session to get as much sleep as you can. And you wake up just tired of having to go work out again and again and again. Just the way that it goes, makes you appreciate what you have at home. It also makes you ready to work out. You’re tired, but once you get to the workout, you go at 100 percent.” Aplin, a 113-pounder, agreed. “You’re just relieved at the end of the day. When you [ more Trojans page 11 ]

Herbie D demolishes field in Longacres Mile For the Reporter

Herbie D, with Amadeo Perez on board, in the winner’s circle. Rachel Ciampi, Auburn Reporter

Herbie D left no doubt who the best horse was at Emerald Downs Sunday. Under a flawless ride by Amadeo Perez at 121 pounds, Herbie D overcame the No. 10 post-position and rolled to a 1½-length victory over Stryker Phd in the 78th running of the $200,000 Longacres Mile (Grade

3) for 3-year-olds and up. A 5-year-old British Columbiabred gelding by Orchid’s DevilChilli Chines, Herbie D ran one mile in 1:35.12 and paid $6.80, $4.40 and $3.20. Trained by Robert Gilker for owners George Robbins of Cobble Hill, B.C., and Darcia Doman of Cowichan Bay, B.C., Herbie D became the second straight B.C.-bred

to win the Mile. Herbie D is 2-for-2 at Emerald Downs and 10-1-1 in 13 career starts, with earnings of $337,928, including $110,000 for Sunday’s win. Hustled to the lead and angled to the rail, Herbie D set fractions of :22.71, :45.04, 1:09.01 and 1:21.71, and held off Stryker Phd and Golden Itiz for the victory. [ more Mile page 11 ] [ trojans from page 10 ] ized for infractions such as look at a schedule and you see your group has review, where they just talk to you and the instructors show their moves, you’re happy,” he said. Among the more challenging workouts at the camp, Aplin said, was the “claw run.” “You have to run 100 meters with a 45-pound weight over your head,” he said, “then you hand it off and run 300 meters back to a spot. You do that 10 times. That was probably the hardest thing for me.” Throw in a point system where campers are penal-

[ mile from page 10 ] In firm control throughout, Herbie D led by at least one length at every call, and spurted to a decisive twolength lead into the stretch. He was never seriously threatened in the run to the wire. “I listened to the trainer’s instructions, and he told me that the plan was to go to the front,” Perez said through an interpreter. “I went to the front and never looked back. I could hear horses coming from the back, but all I was thinking was, ‘where is the wire?’ This is the best race I’ve ever won. I am very happy right now.” Herbie D has won eight of his last nine races, including four stakes at Hastings and the July 21 Mt. Rainier Handicap at Emerald Downs, in which he scored an easy gate-to-wire victory at 1 1/16 miles and earned a 101 Beyer Speed Figure.

missing practice, being late for practice or not filling out workbooks, and it’s easy to see why the “I Did It” T-shirt is so coveted. “They’re pretty strict,” Aplin said. More important than the shirt, however, is the lasting lesson of mental and physical toughness the camp instills in the young athletes. “I learned a whole lot,” said Lindsay, who went two-andout at Mat Classic last year. “One quote I really liked was, ‘To be hard, you have to live hard.’ That really lit a fire in me, I really appreciate that quote. I don’t want Stryker Phd, ridden by Debbie Hoonan at 116 pounds, rallied from 11th in the 12-horse field and edged Golden Itiz for second place by a head. Off at odds of 15-to-1, Stryker Phd paid $11.20 and $5.40 and continued his improbable story, which has seen the 4-yearold Washington-bred finish second in all four stakes for older horses this season at Emerald Downs. “He settled really nicely for me,” Hoonan said. “He got right into his groove. I really didn’t have to do too much. He was really focused. “He never would let (Golden Itiz) go by him. I could here him grunting. He was trying so hard. When we got into the clear, I thought I had a good shot at the win. I knew the leader would be pretty tough to catch. I was thinking that third would be good, but it was even better when we got second.”

to be weak. I want to be as strong as I can, mentally and physically, and just on top of my game. You can’t just be the best wrestler in competition, you have to be the best wrestler in practice. You have to be the best wrestler off the mat, just consistent and strong. “Before this I’d never really done all year-round, committed wrestling,” Lindsay continued. “I’ve gone to a few freestyle tournaments but always just went two-andout. This year I decided that I really want to go to college and be successful. Now I feel uncomfortable not working out. It’s like my muscles

want to work out. I’m always swimming, I love swimming. That’s one of the best workouts for you. I developed a timed workout plan where I wake up at 4:30 in the morning to run an hour and a half so I can get back to go to school at 6:30.” Aplin, a state alternate last year after finishing fifth at regionals, agreed that the camp will help this season. “I think it will help me stay motivated and with a good mental attitude,” Aplin said. “I want to not think about anything else and just focus on winning and making it to state.”

Trained by Margo Lloyd for Jim and Mona Hour of Bellevue, Stryker Phd — still a non-winner of two races — earned $40,000 for finishing second. Golden Itiz, with Gerry Olguin riding at 118, also finished well to take third and paid $6.20 for show. Jebrica, from the barn of five-time Longacres Milewinning trainer Jim Penney, finished fourth, and was followed by Gladding, Why Not Be Perfect, Until You, Tres Borrachos, Politicallycorrect, Winning Machine,

Mr. Bowling and Hoist. Politicallycorrect, the 9-to-5 betting favorite ridden by Hall of Famer Russell Baze, never got seriously involved in the race and finished ninth. “My horse got hit from behind before we got into the first turn and he just dropped the bit,” Baze said. “I tried to get him involved on the backside, but he just wasn’t having any of it. He didn’t give me anything. It’s great to be here for another Mile. It would have been a lot better if I had won it.”.
