Residency of hospital commission candidate challenged By DEAN A. RADFORD

A challenge to the residency of a candidate for the Public Hospital District No. 1 Commission has been filed with the King County Department of Elections. The division’s director, Sherril Huff, will hold a public administrative hearing at 2 p.m. Sept. 12 at the division’s Renton headquarters to consider the challenge. Regardless of the outcome, the name of the challenged candidate, Dr. Tamara Sleeter, will appear in the Nov. 5 election because ballots are being printed on Sept. 10. Sleeter is running against incumbent Sue Bowman for Position 5 on the commission.

The challenge was filed on Aug. 23 by Jim Sullivan, who lives in the hospital district. Sullivan maintains that Sleeter actually lives at a house on 37th Place Southeast in Auburn, outside the hospital district. In filing to run for the commission, Sleeter listed an address on Southeast 175th Place in Renton, which is in the district and is the address on her voter-registration card. Sleeter was notified of the voter-registration challenge and hearing in a letter dated Aug. 30 from the Department of Elections. She can reply to the challenge at the hearing or submit an affidavit if she chooses not to attend, according to the letter. She can bring an attorney.

“The burden of proof is on him,” said Barbara Ramey, a spokeswoman for the elections department, of Sullivan’s challenge. Sullivan outlined his research into Sleeter’s residency in a letter to Huff; he included declarations from two neighbors who live next to Sleeter’s Renton address that no one has lived in the house, apparently for years. “My neighbors rarely see me,” she said in an interview. “I am such a night owl.” His research showed that Sleeter’s name is listed on ownership documents maintained by the county Department of Assessments for the Auburn house but only her

and finally her classroom. Each classroom has a bathroom located adjacent to the room, with sinks and facilities at kid level. There is colorful pint-sized furniture, a rug and reading area in Jacob’s room. Vann was a little apprehensive at first, hiding behind his mother while on the tour, but eventually warmed up to the room, once he discovered blocks and a train set. “It’s a great experience; the teachers are great here,” said Gilberg. “They really care about what they’re doing and the children that they have. I don’t think I’d go anywhere else.”

Gilberg met with Jacob, her son’s teacher, discussing paperwork, bus transportation to the school and any special support or information pertinent to Vann. “I think it’s really nice this year being able to have the families come in and meet with us first,” said Jacob. “And as you saw, it’s a nice transition for the kids to come into the classroom, meet with us, one-on-one. And it’s exciting getting the kids in. I think the building is coming along and everyday looks more and more ready.” The teacher, who worked at the old [ more SCHOOL page 15 ]

King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg will not seek the death penalty if Michael Chadd Boysen is convicted of killing his grandparents. Satterberg announced his decision Aug. 30. Boysen was charged with two counts of aggravated first-degree murder in the slayings of grandparents, Norma and Robert Taylor, in Boysen their Fairwood home in March. He pleaded not guilty in early April. Recent court hearings involving Boysen have been continued because of his health condition. In considering whether to impose the death penalty, Satterberg is required by state law to determine whether there is [ more Boysen page 3 ]

The new center officially begins its school year Monday, Sept. 9. This week teachers met with parents and students of the former Spring Glen and Hillcrest Elementary schools, which are combining programs at Meadow Crest. “It’s beautiful coming from what we had to this; it’s outstanding,” said Becky Gilberg. Gilberg brought her 3-year-old son Vann to Meadow Crest on Tuesday to reconnect with his Hillcrest teacher Erin Jacob. The teacher gave the mother and son a tour of the center, amidst construction activity throughout the brightly lit and colorful hallways. Jacob showed the mother and son the new library, with a small door, sized for the 3- and 4-year-old students; one of the indoor play courts, with brand new trikes

Grocery workers picket to raise awareness regionally continue to deny paid sick days to employees. “One out of two employees have reported coming to work sick because they didn’t have sick time,” Geiger said. “That’s no good for the workers, their families or the customers. We just want a fair deal.” Geiger added that the unions have scheduled possible strike votes toward the end of September. “The nature of the vote’s haven’t been determined yet,” he said. “But the we need to see some significant progress. If we don’t it could be a strike authorization vote.” Geiger added: “This kind of negotiation is not unfamiliar to what is happening across the country,” Geiger said. “They’re just trying to cut their costs. The problem is the companies are making billions and the CEOs are making millions. Most people don’t think that’s fair.” Allied Employers, the Bellevue company handling negotiations for the grocery chains, did not reply to an e-mail requesting comment for this story.


Members of three unions representing grocery store workers in the Puget Sound region took to the street on Aug. 28, picketing to raise awareness about ongoing contract negotiations with several local grocers, including the Renton QFC, Safeway and Albertsons stores. According to United Food and Commercial Workers 21 Union Communications Director Tom Geiger, more than 30,000 union grocery workers and members of UFCW 21, UFCW 367 and Teamsters 38 are currently in contract negotiations with several large grocery chains – including Safeway, Albertsons, Fred Meyer and QFC – as well as several regional union stores. “They’ve been in negotiations since March and unfortunately things haven’t progressed that well,” Geiger said. The main sticking points at the bargaining table revolve around health care coverage, holiday pay and sick leave, among other issues,

Members of United Food and Commercial Workers 21 hosted an informational picket outside the Albertson’s in Renton this week. Submitted Geiger said. “The CEOs of these companies have continued to support proposals that would eliminate health care for thousands of workers, just cut it completely, as well as raise the cost for others,” he said. Geiger said that the proposals

from the stores would cut health care for employees who work less than 30 hours a week. Additionally, Geiger said the stores are proposing to cut current holiday pay from time-and-a-half for employees to just one dollar above their normal wage and

Expect a lane shift next week on Rainier By Brian Beckley

Workers on Rainer Avenue South are getting ready to make another lane shift next week as the project gets closer and closer to completion. According to Angie Thomson, who handles community outreach for the project, the lane shift is planned for the evening of Sept. 12 and will affect the northbound lanes of traffic. Thomson said drivers will be shifted into the two lanes to the east (right) of current traffic to create space for construction of new medians in the roadway. “It’s not a lane restriction,” she said. Some pavement grinding will be necessary to build the medians, but generally, drivers should

not be disrupted. The grinding work will also be done at night. All work is weather-permitting. When complete, Rainier Avenue South will be a boulevard with a median separating the northbound and southbound lanes and removing the left-turn lane in the middle, sometimes referred to as a “suicide lane.” Exits from most businesses will be right-turn only, but there will be U-turn routes available. Thomson said the project is currently ahead of the scheduled completion date of next spring and should be done by the end of the year, weather permitting again, of course. Project improvements to Rainier Avenue South include eliminating left-hand turn lanes, adding new north and south-

bound lanes to increase transit mobility and business access, building wider sidewalks and installing planter strips and upgraded lighting. Underground infrastructure is also being relocated or installed, namely gas, electricity, telecommunications and water. The $16 million Rainier Avenue South Project is a funding collaboration of the City of Renton, Sound Transit, US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, Transportation Improvement Board, Washington State Department of Transportation, Puget Sound Regional Council and the Department of Commerce Public Works Board.

The fire water system has also been replaced, and the taxiway lighting system has been upgraded to LED (light emitting diode) to cut power consumption and long term airport operating costs. In addition, all of the connecting taxiways around the airport have been re-designated to meet national standards, improving communications between pilots and the Air Traffic Control Towerstaff. An emergency generator has been installed to power the Air Traffic Control Tower and airfield lighting. [ more BRAVO page 7 ]

Hospital commission candidate claims Renton home is primary address If Huff finds that Sleeter doesn’t live in the Renton house, she can change the address on her voter registration. The district commissioners would appoint a replacement commissioner if Sleeter wins the election and doesn’t live in the hospital district, according to Ramey. The Bowman-Sleeter race is one of two commission races on the November ballot. The other race is for Anthony Hemstad’s commission seat between Barbara Drennen of Kent and Albert Haylor of Kent. Hemstad chose not to seek reelection as he is moving from the district.

[ Challenge from page 1] husband’s name is listed on the documents for the Renton house. Sleeter said her husband purchased the Renton house just before their marriage, so it’s in his name. Renton has been their home for 24 years. They purchased the home together in Auburn, where their children attend the Auburn Adventist Academy. They’ll return to Renton permanently, when their senior graduates next year. “We use the other for a school house,” she said; its purpose has been nearly filled, she said.

She’s at the Renton house most nights now and is preparing it for the move back, she said, including replacing the roof. She says she doesn’t spend most of her time in any one place. “When my day is done, this is my home,” she said of the Renton house. Sleeter is director of obstetrics for Valley Women’s Clinic, which has clinics in Renton and Covington. The elections department doesn’t investigate residency issues, Ramey said. Instead, officials rely on a voter to “honestly tell us where they live” when they register and sign a sworn oath.


The City of Renton has spent the last several months reconstructing one of the two main taxiways at Renton Municipal Airport/Clayton Scott Field. The Taxiway Bravo Rehabilitation Project serves both general aviation and aircraft manufacturing needs at Renton. The taxiway was originally built in 1943 with involved reconstruction of its subgrade and pavement occurring in the 1960s. The rehabilitation of Taxiway Bravo is a $9.8 million project funded through a 90 percent grant from the Federal Aviation Administration. The remaining 10 percent of project funding was provided by revenue from on-airport tenant leases. “This project is critical to maintaining Renton as a launch site for Boeing 737 aircraft, and to support the growth of general aviation,” said Renton Mayor Denis Law. “This project could not have been possible without

Generator stolen from driveway The following information is compiled from Renton Police Department case reports. By DEAN A. RADFORD

A Renton man looked out his window the morning of Aug. 18 to see an unfamiliar car backed up into his driveway on Bronson Place Southeast. He had left his generator in front of the garage door the night before. He walked out, thinking the man inside was delivering the Sunday newspaper. The car drove off and he noticed his $400 generator was gone. When he couldn’t find the Sunday newspaper, he discovered his wife had canceled the paper the week before.

Camera catches computer heist A Maple Valley man twice set off the fire-exit door alarms Aug. 18 at Walmart on Rainier Avenue while hauling out two desktop computers and then a TV set. His actions were caught on store security cameras. He hid the two computers behind the building and walked off with stolen headphones. A store security officer recovered the computers. Minutes later, the 32-year-old man reentered Walmart and left the store through the same fire exit with the TV set in a shopping cart. He left in a powder-blue Oldsmobile. About an hour later, the suspect returned yet again, concealing more merchandise. This time, the security officer recognized him and called police. The man was booked into the SCORE regional jail for investigation of second-degree organized retail theft.

Drunken teenager demands to be arrested after returning shoes The teenager gave back the tennis shoes he stole from Ross at The Landing on Aug. 19, but he just couldn’t let the officer drive off. He was cited for being a drunken minor in public and was trespassed from Ross and Target, where he had also threatened employees. He had watery eyes and slurred

speech and demanded a breathalyzer, which officers don’t carry. The officer told him he was free to leave. Instead, the teen told the officer he wanted to go to jail and stood in front of the officer’s cruiser with his hands behind his back. He leaned on the cruiser’s hood; the officer told him to back away. The teen then grabbed the car’s push bars, holding on as the officer backed up. The officer stopped his car and pushed the teen away from his car. The teen asked the officer whether he had to punch him to go to jail. He then sat down on the front of the officer’s cruiser. He was booked into the SCORE regional jail for minor intoxicated in public and obstructing an officer. While being driven to Des Moines, he was verbally aggressive and kicked the car’s partition separating him from the officer.

Jaywalking sends escaped felon back to jail A 30-year-old Renton man was booked Aug. 20 on a felony warrant for escaping from state custody after he was stopped for jaywalking on Northeast Sunset Boulevard. During the stop, the man fidgeted and reached for his pockets and waistband. He was handcuffed to ensure the officer’s safety. A records check revealed the warrant from the state Department of Corrections. During a search, the officer found a used syringe in a front pocket and personal documents all the names of others in a backpack. The man told the officer his friend had given him the backpack for safekeeping. A driver’s license and debit card belonged to a Renton man who had left his dirty work clothes on his front porch to dry. He had reported the theft. The suspect was booked into the Regional Justice Center in Kent.

Summer is over, it’s time to get serious Wow, where did the summer go? I admit I had noticed that it seemed to be darker a little earlier, but Labor Day Weekend sure snuck up on me this year. The summer went by in a blur of sunshine and warmth and then all of a sudden clouds, rain, colder nights and school buses again tracing their way around the neighborhood. It seems like every year I don’t get done all the things I hope to during the all-too-short summer months. And I certainly miss the days of youth when summer meant no school and long afternoons of bike rides, baseball with friends and waiting in line for 10-cent Jolly Rancher candies (the long flat ones that would sharpen themselves into blades as you ate them) and Slush Puppies at the snackbar at the Highland Park pool back home in Upstate New York. However, even back then I am sure back-toschool snuck up on me. But this summer just flew by. It seems like just yesterday I was at Coulon Park for the Fourth of July and it can’t be more than a week since I stood in the rain at Veterans Memorial Park honoring those we’d lost, on the three-day weekend that kicks off the summer season. Shoot, I just saw “Iron Man 3” and that was the first major blockbuster released this summer! I still haven’t gotten to “Man of Steel.” I just thought I had more time! Like most people, I love the summer. I love the way it’s taken less seriously than other colder seasons and how people seem less focused on “important matters” while the sun shines and the kids are out of school. Vacations, barbecues, gatherings and late nights tend to drive us away from hard news each year at this time. It’s why the news during summer months sometimes gets a little weird. Summer usually sits outside the rest of the year in its own news bubble as well and we tend to get hung up on things like sharks or royal babies or “twerking” and treat that as actual news. Now that fall is officially, if not technically here, people tend to settle back in to their daily routines and start to pay attention again. It’s why electoral campaigns usually wait until after Labor Day to really get rolling. There’s no point in doing any major campaigning while folks are distracted by vacations and sunshine. That’s not to say news doesn’t happen during the summer or that candidates aren’t out there trying to meet people, especially if they are part of a primary battle to make it to November. One of the things I did this summer was attend my neighborhood picnic. I also went to the city-wide National Night Out celebration and several downtown events and gatherings. At each one, I saw several of the Renton City Council candidates out meeting voters or handing out stickers, balloons or signs. I love watching that part of the process. It’s fun to see how each candidate handles an event like that and it gives a good sense of the candidate’s personality, [ more Editor’s note page 7 ]

What’s more important, picking out CEOs or sheets? Those in the newspaper world are collectively wringing their hands and tearing their hair over the sale of a couple of East Coast dailies, the impact of the Internet, revenue and other garbled gerunds. In the office, a couple of us were reading a release from the CEO of a national online media outlet that used a string of mangled and malignant clauses to describe something. I was never sure what, but I suspect he was laying off a pile of people — of course, in a proud and positive way. He sprinkled in a few references to the happy future, models and commitment, which really means: no future, stupid plastic models that don’t fit together, and “I want more money for my commitment to nothing.” CEOs should try playground rules occasionally. Say what you mean or we take your marbles. One would think an industry that is supposed to be about communications would occasionally try that – communicate. Every time someone from the media business predicts the future, I get a headache and run for the buttermilk. It’s the only thing that cures me. However, there are much more important issues than media moguls and their malicious clauses – and chief among those issues are sheets. Dennis Box

Editor’s Note



[6] September 6, 2013

Forget newspapers, we need to consider bed sheets. I was listening to the women who surround me at the office during the Enumclaw Street Fair, and they were going on and on about bed sheets. I could not understand what the heck the fuss was about. They were talking about buying sheets. I never thought anyone ever actually bought sheets for themselves. I figure they came as gifts, or when you rented a cheap bed it came with sheets. Who knew women really buy sheets and apparently like to buy them? Like it is fun or something. I have an economic theory. When God created Eve, the sheet business came with the package. I know of no male-type human who would put a sheet on a bed if it were not for a woman. Without women, the entire industry would collapse overnight. Know what would happen then? Sheet CEOs would come out with a bunch of “we are proudly looking forward to a positive future with our bed sheetless model for men who are really pigs.” I better go find some sheets to proudly put on my bed.

What questions should we ask our candidates? While the newspaper endorsement is a traditional role for an editorial board to play, our staff is quite small and because we will be covering the election and the council next year, it is best if we do not wade into that process. Our role is not to decide for whom you should vote. Our role will be to simply provide the best information we can about every candidate and their ideas about government and the issues facing the city, which will allow you to make the best choice you can when you cast your ballot. That said, we want to hear from you regarding the issues you believe are the most important when making your decision. What issue do you believe matters most this election season?

often just as important as where they stand on any given issue. Some hang back, some work the room. Some spend a lot of time with a handful of voters, some try to meet as many people as possible and get their names heard. This year, Renton has three council seats up for election, though only two are being contested. (Council President Randy Corman is running unopposed.) In one race, incumbent Terri Briere is being challenged by local activist Beth Asher, one of the leaders and primary voices in the group Save the Cedar River Library … Again! that fought last year to keep the library over the river and this year to maintain its size and mid-span entrance. The other race is for a relative-

ly rare open seat on the council, as Rich Zwicker opted not to run for re-election this year. That race pits local businessman Armondo Pavone against activist Stuart Avery. Pavone is best known as a co-owner of Melrose Grill while Avery was instrumental in last year’s push to get a library location vote on the ballot, though this year he has disassociated himself from the group during their appeal of the library site plan and door location. Because there were no primary battles this year in the city, we at the Reporter opted to wait until the fall to begin our coverage of this year’s election. However, with fall here, it is time to start our coverage. Unlike years past, the Reporter will not be endorsing candidates prior to the November election.

Nelson twins honor father’s legacy with show BY MARK KLAAS

Matthew Nelson best describes his dad’s legendary music and acting career as a series of comebacks. When criticized – even booed off the stage – undaunted Ricky Nelson would return to play again. “What I learned from him, more than anything, is to never give up, and he never did,” Matthew Nelson said of his famous father, America’s first “teen idol” of the 1950s who eventually blossomed to become a Rockabilly and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician and singersongwriter. Globally recognized but not universally loved, Ricky Nelson played to his own beat, performing music that transcended genres, from rock to pop, folk to country. Despite the critics, especially those who scrutinized the man late in his up-and-down career, Ricky Nelson persevered to become one of the most important rock artists and influential musicians of the last 50 years, producing more than 100 million lifetime record sales. “He was one of the only guys who really reinvented himself and did something completely different,” Matthew Nelson said by phone from Nashville, Tenn. “A lot of people in America were writing him off as a made-for-TV pretty

An image of Ricky Nelson, the first “teen idol,” is ghosted between a photo of his sons Matthew Nelson, left, and Gunnar Nelson, right. Photo Courtesy Stone Canyon Records boy … only to (became) a vital and relevant artist. … He got a chance to find himself but had to do it very publicly because he was always so famous.” Ricky Nelson’s life and music touched millions and greatly influenced his twin sons – multiplatinum recording artists Matthew and Gunnar Nelson – who relive the star’s music and memories in

an interactive multi-media event, Ricky Nelson Remembered. The two-hour celebration of the late artist’s career comes to the Kentlake Performing Arts Center for a 7 p.m. show Saturday, and at the Renton’s IKEA Performing Arts Center for a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday. The show brings back Ricky Nelson’s many hit songs like “Hello

Mary Lou,” “Poor Little Fool,” “Travelin’ Man,” “I’m Walkin’,” “I Gotta Feeling,” “Teenage Idol” and “Garden Party.” The musical event – one of 100 tour stops the 45-year-old twins will make this year – is heartfelt, soulful and full of laughter, all in tribute to their beloved dad. “He was the nicest guy you have ever met, that’s what impressed me most of all,” Matthew Nelson said. “I never saw him have a celebrity moment or throw a celebrity tantrum. … I never saw him act like he was better than anybody else. He always looked them in the eyes, shook their hand. He was always sweet. “He always had a smile on his face,” Matthew Nelson added. “His charisma? It was almost worldly. He was really special that way.” For many fans, Ricky Nelson was cool then – on TV, stage and screen – and he remains cool today. “People still love him and they miss him, and that’s why they come to this show,” Matthew Nelson said. Ricky Nelson is the only artist to have a No. 1 song, No. 1 movie and No. 1 TV show in the same week. Life Magazine coined the phrase “Teen Idol” after him. He is credited with pioneering the country rock sound. But as the times changed, so did [ more Nelson page 10 ]

the music, and Ricky Nelson struggled to capture an audience. That became evident when Ricky Nelson was booed off the stage at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, seemingly because he was playing his newer, country-tinged music instead of the 1950s-era rock that he had made him so successful earlier in his career. In response, a disgusted Ricky Nelson came up with “Garden Party,” which became a 1972 hit, reaching No. 6 on the Billboard charts. Lyrically, Nelson shot back, realizing “you can’t please everyone, so you’ve got to please yourself.” It was yet another unforeseen comeback for Ricky Nelson, whom the music industry considered washed up at the time. “‘Garden Party’ is relevant because it was him in particular,” Matthew Nelson said. “After a lifetime of being what everybody wanted him to be … when everybody kind of made a judgement on him, he got to a place to where he finally said, ‘OK, I’ve just been booed off the stage by 20,000 people because I don’t look like I did in the ‘50s, and I’m playing Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan songs and new stuff with long hair, and I think I need to say something about it.’” Nelson’s comeback was short lived. He produced music and had minor roles on

Renton Indians football ‘hungry for more’ this year By Brian Beckley

Led by a couple of All-League players and a new face at quarterback, the Renton Indians football team has high expectations for this season. With a fourth-place finish and a firstround playoff loss last year, Renton coach Donald Ponds said in an email the goal this season is to make a deeper run into the playoffs. The past two years, Renton High has watched its season end in the round of 32. “The public needs to know this team is hungry for more, to be better in every aspect of the game and to fulfill the high expectations set for the season,” Ponds said

in an email. Last year, the Indians finished with a 4-6 record and a Seamount League record of 3-3. In a change this season, DaSaun Sauls, a three-year starter at quarterback, is moving to wide receiver and junior Elijah Clayton, a All-League second-team selection last year, will take over under center. Other top returners for the Indians include two-time All-League lineman Micah Prescott, All League running back/ linebacker Ernie Davis and wide receiver Jouvani Robinson. The Renton Indians open their season today, Friday against Olympic at Renton Memorial Stadium.

After a strong showing last season, there’s a youth movement under way on the Renton High School girls soccer team. According to Coach Andrea Anderson, coming off last year’s 7-5-0 record this year’s top returner is sophomore Asia Brisco and Anderson said nine freshman and six sophomores turned out for the team this year. Along with Brisco, Anderson said players to watch this season are freshman Janae Alcantara Viera and senior Taylor Farris, a basketball standout Sophomore Asia Brisco is one of the top who will be playing goalie this fall. returners this season. File photo “Since we are such a young team, we are excited about the growth for the girls soccer program,” Anderson said in an email. “We have been working hard and are a very upbeat team.” The Indians’ season begins Tuesday, Sept. 10, against Eastlake at Renton Memorial Stadium.

Following a disappointing sixth-place finish last year, the Renton High School girls volleyball team is putting a new focus on the fundamentals this season under new coach Breanne Robirds. Robirds is moving up to coach the varsity team after coaching the junior varsity last season. According to the new coach, the team lost two standouts to graduation last year in All League players Jazzlynn Joshua and Hannah Franceschina, but she expects several “solid players” to step up and fill their shoes. Senior Richiel Santa Maria and sophomore Emily Lincoln are two to watch, for example. Robirds said both players have varsity experience and showed up to the pre-season working hard and looking to improve. Robirds said Santa Maria is a solid middle blocker while Lincoln will transition from a middle blocker to an outside hitter to “really make use of her solid hitting.” Robirds said the main focus this year is “focusing on our basic skill work.” “We want to make the little details perfect so that the overall game becomes a little bit easier for us,” Robirds said in an email. The Renton volleyball season opens Sept. 10 at Federal Way. The home opener is Sept. 12 against Tyee.

Since the event began in October 2012 with an event on Cougar Mountain, nearly 100 people have earned a commemorative 30th anniversary Conservation Futures geocoin by

finding a cache box and stamping their GeoTour Passport with the unique stamp found inside each of the 20 caches. The sites that have earned the most “favorite” points from geocachers include Lewis Creek Park, Snoqualmie Valley Trail at the Tokul Creek Trestle, Pinnacle Peak Trail, Ring Hill Forest, Tolt-MacDonald Park and Rock Creek Natural Area. Commemorative coins are still available for those who get their passports filled by Oct. 6, when all

caches will be taken offline. Geocaching is a GPSguided treasure hunt that started in the Pacific Northwest at the turn of the new century when government satellite technology became available to the public. The King County Parks geocaches are among over 2 million geocaches worldwide. Free GPS apps are available at geocaching. com. King County Parks partnered with on the GeoTour to celebrate the accomplishments of Conservation Futures fund-

ing, which has been used to protect 111,000 acres of land and leveraged $150 million in matching funds for parks, trails and open space. The enthusiasm and appreciation for these parks properties from the hundreds of GeoTour participants has been overwhelming since the event’s kick-off at Cougar Mountain on Oct. 6, 2012.
