City clarifies when alleys are required By Brian Beckley bbeckley@rentonreporter.com

Taking the plunge Under the watchful eye of owner Mathew Roland, 3-year-old pitbull Balto dives into the Henry Moses Aquatic Center wave pool after a tennis ball during the Pooch Plunge that ended the aquatic center’s season Sept. 7. Dogs of all sizes and breeds charged in and out of the center’s various pools (though not the slide) in three sold-out, hour-long sessions. Some owners chose to join their pets in the water, while others stayed on the shore. Brian Beckley, Renton Reporter

After the issue came to a head earlier this summer, the city planning department has issued a new, updated code interpretation for dealing with alleys in new housing developments. Planning Director Chip Vincent told the council during Monday’s Committee of the Whole presentation that the idea is to simply provide “guidance, clarity and predictability” for developers to know when alleys are necessary in their developments. The code presently reads “Alley access is the preferred street pattern except for properties in the Residential Low Density land use designation … Prior to approval of a plat without alley access, it shall be determined through an evaluation of alley layout that the use of alley(s) is not feasible.” It is the word “preference” that is hanging up the MBA. Because alleys are “preferred” and not “required” the MBA wants more flexibility in their designs. Developers and members of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties have challenged the city’s “preference” and would themselves prefer [ more ALLEYS page 8 ]

Overcoming obstacles with extreme sports By TRACEY COMPTON tcompton@rentonreporter.com

Teens Mikayala Cheney, of Renton, and Gabriel Hamilton, of Kent, weren’t participants in typical teenage activities and socializing before three years ago. Both came from troubled pasts and had issues they were trying to overcome. Now, after three years participating in extreme sports activities through Sound Mental Health’s group-therapy programs, Cheney and Hamilton are socially active and engaged in the world around them. “I’ve found myself more open to things, more open to being social because I know that if I hold myself back, I’m not going to get anywhere,” said Cheney. “If I keep isolating myself, I’m not going to be able to do the fun things that I do.” The fun Cheney has participated in is snowboarding and indoor skydiving at iFly in Tukwila with Sound Mental Health. Extreme sports activities at the agency have also included motocross, long-boarding, mountain-bike riding, skateboarding, and standup paddle-boarding. All have been developed under the direction of Brandon Stogsdill, a Sound Mental Health therapist. Cheney grew up without a father, no male role models and lost her brother to suicide when she was 7

years old. Her family life affected her and made her shy, not wanting to socialize much. Hamilton was challenged by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD. He had problems controlling his anger, he said.

“When I was up there, I was free. I cleared my mind of all the anger, stuff like that.” Gabriel Hamilton

Hamilton and Cheney both recounted how snowboarding trips with the agency and Chill, snowboard company Burton’s foundation, helped turn their lives around. “When I was up there, I was free,” said Hamilton. “I cleared my mind of all the anger, stuff like that. And then, when I learned these lessons, it helped me pick up on that and get rid of that anger, using what I’ve learned.” Life lessons were taught to the group by Stogsdill. He had his own rough road to navigate as a youth. The therapist was once incarcerated at 19 and spent time in ering Now Oflifne On Ordering

prison. Stogsdill turned it around in jail, saying, “God got ahold of my heart and changed it and gave me a crystal clear purpose to work with kids and prevent them from standing in the very same prison cell I stood.” He went to college, the first of his family, got his master’s degree and became a child mental-health specialist and chemicaldependency professional. Stogsdill has worked with Sound Mental Health for three years, developing this unique approach to therapy. “(There was) no research,” he said of extreme sports and therapy. “The only thing I found is that kids who do extreme sports are pot smokers and bad for the community, and I scoured for years,” Stogsdill said of the relentless research he did to support his group therapy idea. Stogsdill is currently working to get this extension of his group therapy at Sound Mental Health recognized legitimately in textbooks for its benefits to mental health therapy. Most kids have a predisposition to risk-taking behavior that lets the brain take chances CATERIN ServicesG

Some choose to take those chances with drugs, but people can get a natural and organic high with extreme sports activities, Stogsdill said. “This is a novel idea; it’s very cutting-edge,” he said. “It’s very extreme and it gets people into therapy, who normally wouldn’t do

it. Counseling’s not what it used to be.” For more information on the type of voluntary group therapy options at Sound Mental Health, visit the organization’s website, http:// www.smh.org/.

‘Take a Warrior Fishing’ comes to Renton

The

Tradeshow “Connecting People and Businesses that Build, Remodel, and Repair.”

just wants to help. “Fishing is the one thing I can offer to help them with that,” he said. Many of the vets have post traumatic stress disorder, he said, and fishing seems to really help them relax and focus. Owens, whose organization has grown to host these events all over the country, said one veteran from Virginia told him the only time he feels sane is when he is fishing. Owens said he also hopes the day provides an opportunity for the veterans to spend some time with their families, from whom they have also been away while at war and who also have their own stresses and issues. “If someone from your family is in the Army, everyone is in the Army,” he said. Owens said his group is always looking for volunteers, especially those with boats. For more information, visit castforkids.org or call Jim Owens at 425251-3214.

Under a new set of rules filed this past week by the state Liquor Control Board and expected to be approved this fall, the city of Renton could be home to three marijuana stores. Under I-502, the 2012 voter-approved initiative that legalized the recreational use of marijuana, the state’s Liquor Control Board was tasked with developing the rules that will govern the state’s pot industry, including the retail stores, to be licensed like liquor stores prior to their privatization. The rules put forth last week call for a total of 61 stores in King County to be licensed to sell marijuana, with the most, 21, headed for Seattle. King County will also have 11 at-large stores. Renton is in line for three stores, as is Kent and Federal Way. Bellevue will get four, Kirkland two and Tukwila and Maple Valley will both get a single store. Though several cities are still working on marijuana policies and possible zoning ordinances, the Renton City Council in June coalesced around a suggestion to treat businesses looking to sell marijuana exactly as they did those selling liquor.

For Jim Owens, there’s always been something special about getting out on the lake with a rod and reel and casting one’s cares away. “It’s a therapeutic thing, really,” he said. Nearly 23 years ago, Owens started C.A.S.T. (Catch A Special Thrill) For Kids, a group that takes disabled and special-needs kids out for a day fishing, so they can experience the thrill of reeling in a fish and the quiet of a day on the water. “I’ve seen the magic of what it does for kids,” he said, adding that it gets them out of their normal life and routine and lets them experience something new. “It’s amazing when they hook a fish. The reaction is incredible.” But with his son-in-law serving his ninth deployment with a US Army Ranger unit based out of Fort Benning, Ga., Owens said he began to try and think of a way to do something for those who served, especially those who were

injured. “I just wanted to give something back to these guys,” he said. Going with what he knows, two years ago Owens created the Take a Warrior Fishing program after hearing his daughter and son-in-law talk about the difficulties of re-adjusting to civilian life after being deployed in a war zone. This weekend, he brings the program home to Renton for the first time and approximately 35 wounded veterans and their families are expected at Gene Coulon Park to do a little fishing. “All of these are Wounded Warriors,” he said of the vets headed to Lake Washington on Saturday. “It’s our way to say ‘thank you’ for what you’ve done for us.” Local boat owners will be on hand to take the veterans and their families out on the water and offer some tips. Owens said many of the veterans are in transition, coming back from deployment and trying to adapt to civilian life. Owens said it can be a difficult road sometimes to try and find one’s way back from the difficulties of war and he

Joan (Ostrom) Jensen, our beloved mother, passed away peacefully at her home on August 19, 2013. She was 82 and enjoyed spending time with family and friends, reading and playing cards. Joan was known for her thoughtfulness, loving-nature, inquiring mind, outgoing personality, and puzzle-solving abilities. Throughout her life, she gave back through volunteer activities including organizing the Girl Scouts cookie sale, teaching Sunday school, tutoring students and participating in local elections. She was born to Gustaf and Elma Ostrom on her grandparent’s farm in Wisconsin and grew up in Duluth, Minnesota. After graduating from Duluth Central High School, she worked as a secretary. It was there that she met and married Charles (Chuck) Jensen. The two moved to Minneapolis and started their family. They also lived in Indiana and then Michigan, where they had the youngest of their seven children. The family left the Midwest in 1974 when Chuck accepted a position at the Boeing Corporation.They lived the remainder of their lives together in Renton with much of their family nearby. In each place she lived, Joan created a community and made life-long friends. Joan took an interest in the lives of extended family (she loved being a grandmother) but also was an enthusiastic traveler visiting Costa Rica, Croatia, and many other places. She maintained contact with her late sisters, Betty and Janice, and her brothers-in-law, Warren and the late Walter (Sonny) along with their spouses and children. She served as the gathering force for family reunions and holiday celebrations; a tradition carried on by her children. She leaves seven children, Linda Jensen (Michael Shattow), Sam Jensen, Carol (Scott) Rose, Marjorie (Michael) McVeigh, Bill (Sandra) Jensen, Sarah Jane Jensen, and Elizabeth (Joe) Pendleton and nine grandchildren, Cody Jensen, Genevieve Shattow, Terra Rose, Shana Jensen, Max Rose, Madeline Shattow, Ryan Pendleton, Jack Pendleton, and Anna Pendleton and two great-grandchildren, Justus Van Luven and Mason Gist. She will be greatly missed and fondly remembered for her compassion, wit and enthusiasm. An interment service will take place at Tahoma National Cemetery on September 27. In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to Friends of Renton Schools in honor of the years Joan spent tutoring Renton students. 877303

The Renton Municipal Arts Commission is hosting its sixth “Arts Equinox” event this week to provide a forum for the growing local arts community. This fall, the event’s theme is music. “It’s a seasonal party we have,” commission member Ben Andrews said Monday. “It’s really just a celebration.” The Arts Equinox events began about three years ago with the idea of bringing together the various groups and artists of the Renton community in a single networking and public art event. Renton Community Development and Project Director Jennifer Davis Hayes said while Renton has a large community of artists and organizations, they weren’t often talking with each other, so the Equinox events were created to bring everyone together to meet other artists and network.

But the event is also free and open to the public. Scheduled to perform are the Renton Youth Symphony Orchestra, piano player and singer McKenzie Fysh and jazz guitarist and singer Nicholas Fair. Along with the music, there will be a series of “pecha kucha” presentations as well. A “pecha kucha” is a type of presentation originally developed in Japan in which the artist presents 20 slides for 20 seconds each (for a total of six minutes and 40 seconds) Wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.

You can close the book on an allegation which captivated attention in the waning days of the 2012 congressional contest between Republican John Koster and Democrat Suzan DelBene. Spoiler alert: It wasn’t true. If you recall, in the heat of their duel, Koster insinuated DelBene — now the congresswoman — had given special treatment to a prominent supporter of Democratic candidates and causes while she served as director of the state Department of Revenue in 2011. Koster linked her to allegations made in a whistleblower complaint filed by a veteran employee. That worker alleged the unnamed Democratic supporter avoided paying a $2 million use tax on a personal airplane because of political favoritism. Koster repeatedly said because it happened on her watch she needed to respond to the charge. “She says millionaires ought to pay their fair share but apparently millionaires got a break,” he said in a television interview. As Koster pushed the matter on the campaign trail throughout October, he seemed increasingly frustrated at its failure to gain much traction. “While our liberal media friends are ignoring this major scandal, we are going to continue asking questions until we get some answers,” he wrote on his campaign’s Facebook page Oct. 23. This week, an investigation found that “no reasonable cause to believe an improper governmental action occurred.” Former state auditor Brian Sonntag launched the probe soon after receiving the whistleblower complaint alleging the tax should have been levied but higher-ups in the department delayed doing so until it became too late for them to legally collect it. Sonntag’s successor, Troy Kelley, a Democrat, oversaw the completion of the investigation and issued the findings Monday. “In review of the case notes and the subjects’ email, phone records and statements from witnesses and subjects, we found the Department never made the determination that use tax was owed by the taxpayer in this case,” investigators wrote. “Our investigation found no hold was placed on the case that prevented an assessment from being issued,” they concluded. “Additionally, we found no evidence that any employee of the Department intentionally delayed the case in order to allow the statutory time bar to expire.” No one is identified by name in the seven-page report. Instead, agency employees involved are referred to by title. Nowhere is the director mentioned. Koster, a Snohomish County Councilman, was on bereavement leave and unavailable for comment, according to his staff. DelBene, who described Koster’s claim as “a baseless accusation from a desperate campaign,” declined to comment on the auditor’s findings. While she said all along she had no involvement in the decision, Delbene may need to address this matter again when she seeks re-election next year. Some books are worth re-reading.

Media needs to evolve to flourish What will become of us? That’s the multimillion-dollar question, isn’t it? We recently got word of three more sales – The Boston Globe, Newsweek, and The Washington Post. The Globe is notable for its diminished value, what the New York Times Co. bought for $1.1 billion they sold for a tiny fraction at a mere $70 million. Jeff Bezos, of Amazon.com, bought the Post for $250 million, also undoubtedly less than the paper would have fetched a decade ago. Does anyone even remember Newsweek? There is the still-looming question of what will happen to the Tribune Co. papers, namely the Chicago Tribune and LA Times. Speculation has swirled for years about their sale, which was stirred up again this year when Tribune Co. emerged from bankruptcy. The two main theories involve selling – although who would buy? – or spinning the papers off into a separate company which is ironic as the paper division was once the flagship of the company. And then there is the experiment that is the Orange County Register, where two middle-age owners have poured money into the place and adding pages, sections and entire publications, not to mention adding to the newsroom staff. It’s the classic “if we build it they will come” tactic. Time will only tell if that approach will work. It’s not all bad news; there are papers out there that are still profitable, albeit at smaller margins than they used to be. The smaller community journalism papers have been known to be in the black. It happens. Katherine Smith

OPINION

[6] September 13, 2013

With a sale comes the inevitable question which have plagued journalism professionals for the past decade: what will become of us? Collectively, however, the business model for journalism is broken. It has been limping along, wounded by a circulation scandal in the mid-2000s, the implosion of advertising revenue thanks to the Internet and the bursting of the housing bubble – the latter of which was accelerated by economic collapse of 2008. Historically, advertising has carried the industry – the newsstand and subscription prices have never been enough to support the production costs – which worked fantastically when it was the main vehicle for reaching consumers. But we’ve all seen how that came crashing down. This has led may to believe that journalism is dying. A sad state of affairs that would be. As long as we live in a republic, we need the fourth estate. We need passionate, committed people who are willing to search for the truth, have the knowledge, and put in the time to inform citizens. We need people who are willing to serve as the watchdog. To survive, to flourish, we need to try new things. We need to be unafraid of trying. What other option do we have? Journalism isn’t dying, but it is evolving. Will our society value our work enough to come along for the ride? No one yet knows what Bezos’ strategy with The Post will entail in practice, but in his letter to the staff he emphasizes innovation and experimenting.

Bellevue Pain Clinic offers

Advanced Treatment for Knee Pain Sufferers How do I know if this treatment is right for me?

Jason had to have his wife bring him into the The Pain Center of Bellevue because he had lost the ability to play golf, sit, stand, or walk for more than ten minutes... He felt crippled, and was admittedly “addicted to drugs now.” Jason had severe knee pain with clicking and popping for over 3 years. He had 40% loss of muscle strength in his legs and because of this he said he could no longer climb stairs or walk without knee pain. He was diagnosed by X-Ray to have arthritis in his knees. Jason had tried the typical medication, physical therapy, chiropractic, and steroid injections with no relief at all... so in 2010 he went ahead and had arthroscopic surgery performed on his left knee. This is when your surgeon can use arthroscopy to feel, repair or remove damaged tissue. To do this, small surgical instruments are inserted through other incisions around your knee.... Well, like in many cases, this did not work to solve the underlying problem so he had lost all hope. When he went to visit an orthopedic surgeon he said he couldn’t help his case and he was going to end up eventually requiring a knee replacement surgery. Jason and his wife had nowhere to turn until they heard about The Pain Center of Bellevue and Joint Regeneration Therapy. Jason was told exactly how the Joint Regeneration Therapy worked and how it might be able to help him... but due to his severity and history of bone on bone arthritis...no promises were given...other than that the staff would do what they do best and provide him with high quality care with the highest quality medical equipment specifically designed to help joints recover, heal, and repair. After a few weeks of care, Jason was pain free and was able to walk, run, sit, lift, work, and do anything he needs to be a normal productive person with a real future. He is off all medication and the thought of a knee replacement is now in the past! Jason’s wife also know’s what a true gift this has been for them and it would not have been possible without The Pain Center of Bellevue.

Joint Regeneration Therapy may be the right treatment for you if: 1. Your knee pain is due to osteoarthritis 2. You are not getting adequate osteoarthritis knee pain relief from walking and/or physical therapy 3. You are not getting adequate osteoarthritis knee pain relief from pain medications, including: Ibuprofen (e.g., Advil®), Acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol®), Naproxen sodium (e.g., Aleve®) If you are suffering with any amount of knee pain, then you owe it to yourself to have a no-obligation evaluation of your MRI and/or X-ray and physical examination with one of our specialists so we can determine if Joint Regeneration Therapy would help you or a loved one. The first step is this evaluation, just to see if you are a candidate. From there it will be your decision to proceed with care if we accept your case. We only work with serious people who have serious problems... We have a limited number of new patient appointments per week, so call now and reserve a time for us to look at your case and see what’s possible.

Getting to Know My Knee What is the knee joint and what does it do? Your knee is one of the most important joints in your body. It is a major “weight-bearing” joint— which means it helps support your body’s weight. It plays a role in almost all of your movements. The way your knee bends back and forth is a lot like a hinge on a door. Part of it also rotates whenever you bend it (this is called “flexion”) and straighten it (this is called “extension”).

Causes and symptoms of knee pain Knee pain is very common. In fact, 33% of people in the United States over the age of 45 report some form of knee pain.

for the developer” on lots that size, so the city will take that zone out of the requirement. In addition, because there is no current language for predicting when the alley standard will be applied, the city clarified its interpretation to say that alleys will only be required where they currently exist and only for subdivision with interior lots. It makes no sense, Vincent said, to require alley access for exterior lots that ring a property. Vincent also said there would be a threshold of more than six dwelling units per acre before the alley access is triggered; however, alleys will be required at any project that goes for maximum density. Finally, Vincent said there would be three factors to determine the need for alleys that will help provide developers predictability when submitting site plans so there is less chance of them being sent back for further work. Under the new interpretation, there will be no alleys required in any short plat (nine lots or fewer), if the topogra-

1. Almost any problem involving the eye should be seen right away. Glaucoma, corneal ulcers, and foreign bodies beneath the eyelids are very serious and may lead to permanent blindness. 2. Profuse vomiting is another sign that needs immediate attention. It does not take very long for a pet, particularly a small one to become dangerously dehydrated. 3. Difficulty breathing is also a problem that should not wait. Difficulty breathing may be a severe cough, but more commonly it is exaggerated effort in breathing, with pets often using their abdominal muscles to help them breathe. 4. If there is active hemorrhage, of course, the pet needs to be seen by a veterinarian right away. If there are just a few drops of blood from a minor wound, it is probably OK to wait for your regular veterinarian. 5. If your pet has its first seizure, particularly if it lasts more that a couple of minutes, should be examined immediately. 6. If your pet ingests a toxin, particularly antifreeze, they should be taken to the emergency hospital as soon as possible. The doctor may induce vomiting to try to eliminate the absorption of the toxin, so time is important. 7. If your pet is pregnant, and is having difficulty having the babies, it should see the emergency veterinarian. If sever, this problem may require an emergency caesarean section. Of course, there are many other problems that pets can have. If you need advice on whether your pet’s symptoms should have immediate attention, call your Veterinarian or the local Emergency Hospital for advice. They will be happy to discuss your pet and their problem.

Finding the Connection

Q. What constitutes a pet emergency?

phy is too steep or if the environmental impacts of having alleys has a greater negative effect than not having alleys. Generally speaking, alleys will now be required in higher-density areas with eight homes per acre. “At higher densities, with smaller lot sizes, it is far less practicable to adequately allow for front-loaded garages while facilitating the development of a quality neighborhood,” the interpretation reads. MBA representative David Hoffman said he believed “significant progress” has been made on this issue since starting a “new conversation” with the city in July. Land-use attorney Nancy Rogers, who represents Henley Homes, the builder that first challenged the interpretation this year on an open, 22-acre parcel of land in the city, requested further clarification, especially regarding the number of homes on an acre and the topographic concerns. All of her issues were in a letter that Vincent said were acceptable and was attached as part of the report. The larger issues of whether to allow alleys will come up again next year during the city’s code update, though many council members said they don’t think alleys are a good idea for reasons including safety and because it is not what people want. But short of a change in city policy and code, council members generally expressed thanks and support for the new interpretation and will take up the matter again Monday. Reach Editor Brian Beckley at 425-255-3484, ext. 5050.

to build developments front access through a driveway, instead of through an alley. Adding alleys to a development reduces the amount of developable land and the builders say people also prefer driveway access when buying homes. Barring a change in policy, however, builders have asked for clarification of when alleys will be required. To clarify the matter, the city is proposing several new interpretations. First, Vincent said though the code includes alleys in the R-4 zoning, the city has never required them for that zone because it creates a “significant burden

Argentine Tango takes center stage in Renton

following…” Social Tango is not really about trying to have a certain look and strike a certain pose, she said. Her husband, Grant, likes the global accessibility of the dance. “You can go anywhere in the world or dance with anybody that doesn’t even share the same language,” he said. Because the mechanics aren’t set in stone, the lead and follow dancers just have to know their parts to connect, he said. The two instructors get interest from people who are in their 40s or older and those in their 20s and 30s without kids. Since Tango dancing happens at night, couples tend not to have kids or really good babysitter options, K’ai said. First-timers might have a difficult time with finding the beat, as there are no drums to set the rhythm. However, new Tango dancers can get by through feeling the music until they understand it, K’ai said. So how does Argentine Tango [ more Tango page 11]

The first week of instructors K’ai and Grant Fu’s Tango 42 dance class, they had a full house. The couple started teaching Argentine Tango last week at the Frank R. Vaise VFW Post, in downtown Renton. Originally from Hawaii, the pair moved to Seattle in January. They have their own video production company in addition to their dance lessons. The couple met in 1999 at an Argentine Tango workshop in Hawaii. There are many forms of Tango, but the Fus teach more of a social Tango for bar room dancing, K’ai said. “It’s a different kind of creativity,” she said. “It’s more about the improvisation, being in the moment with the partner, leading and

Last-minute touchdown gives Renton opening-game win By Brian Beckley bbeckley@rentonreporter.com

Ernie Davis scored three touchdowns and quarterback Elijah Clayton threw for another as the Renton Indians bested Olympic 26-20 Friday on a last-second touchdown at Renton Memorial Stadium to open their 2013 campaign. Davis had touchdown runs of 69 and 83 yards and also caught the game-winning 48-yard pass for a touchdown in a stellar season opening performance. Junior Clayton, in his first game as a starter, also held his own, throwing a pair of deep touchdown passes, including an 85-yard throw-andrun to Jouvouani Phomprida-Robinson. After a few back-and-forth series to open the game, Olympic scored first on a 2-yard run and point-after to take a 7-0 lead after the first quarter.

But the Indians answered back as Davis broke free for Renton’s first touchdown, a 69-yarder that brought fans to their feet and started the Indians on their way to a 20-point second quarter. Phomprida-Robinson’s catch and run down the sidelines, followed by a 2-point conversion from Davis, gave the Indians a 14-7 lead before Davis broke open an 83-yard run down the far sidelines to take it to 20-7. Olympic battled back, scoring late in the second quarter on a 23-yard run play and the teams headed into halftime at 20-14. Following a back-and-forth second half, Olympic tied the game in the fourth quarter with a 45-yard run, but their point-after-touchdown kick missed, leaving the game tied with less than a minute left. But with time ticking down, Clayton somehow found Davis for a 48-yard touchdown pass

make one feel? “It is the most focused thing that I do, and yet is the most relaxing,” K’ai said. “It feels like moving meditation.” For her, dancing, in general, is kind of like breathing, K’ai said. She’s participated in one form of dance or another since she was 13 years old. Although this form of Tango is largely improvisational, there are still rules and etiquette to the dance the instructors said. People tend to like the playful steps that involve the dance partners intertwining their legs in a “hook.” Shoes that fit securely on your feet, with a smooth sole, are suggested for Tango, said K’ai. Both instructors boast there are a lot of places for students to take their Tango skills in Seattle and aboard. “I tell my people, they can learn locally and dance globally,” said K’ai.

Protesters call for higher wages at Walmart Lynwood man pistol[ protests from page 1]

The group facilitated by, Organization United for Respect at Walmart, or OUR Walmart, staged their protest on the grounds of the former Ford dealership, while police blocked off Rainier from SW Grady Way to SW Seventh Street for about an hour. After speeches, singing and rally cries for support, the protestors marched in a circle on Rainier, in front of the store’s parking lot. When police signaled for the group to disband and move off of the street, all but a small circle of protestors left Rainier. After sitting down with their signs, the protestors were asked once more to move by police and then one by one they were arrested. While each protestor was led away, the organizers noted their sacrifice and got the crowd to cheer their support. “We’re here to stand up for workers rights for higher wages, for respect,” said Vivian Sherman, who came down from Bellingham to protest in Renton. Sherman has worked at the Bellingham Walmart for the last five years, and participated in protests for workers rights for about three years. She claims the company is not fair, nice or “not how good business should work.” Sherman has passed buttons out at the Bellingham Walmart in the past and protested in other cities that get more attention, she said.

Sherman doesn’t see her participation in protests like this one dangerous because “we have rights in this country and we shouldn’t be afraid to use them,” she said. Nationwide protests were planned Sept. 5, calling for better jobs at Walmart. The Renton location is the closest store to Seattle, which does not have a Walmart within city limits. According to organizers and Walmart management, no Renton employees took part in the protest. Inside the Renton store, some employees don’t understand what all the fuss is about. “I’m not sure what that’s all about,” said Marissa Bocoum, Renton Walmart employee. “I’ve been here seven years and I know that we do have a voice and they do listen to us.” Her co-worker Josie Merveus echoed her sentiment. “Me working at Walmart, I can say nothing negative about it,” Merveus said. “I’ve been with them for about eight years; I can’t complain.” Both women are in their 30s, have kids and spoke in an interview inside the store about a pretty steady climb through promotions to the present positions. Bocoum started with Walmart at $12 an hour, as an overnight stocker. Now she makes about $18 per hour, as a zone supervisor, she said. Merveus was hired at first as cashier at $10.50 per hour,

then let go and rehired, eventually also becoming a zone supervisor. Merveus declined to say how much she makes now, but said she’s happy with it. The Renton store has been the backdrop for similar protests last November on Black Friday, in April and June. Jeremy Smith, Renton store director, called the protests disrespectful to customers, store associates and a nuisance, more than anything. “They have their opinion, we have ours,” he said. About 74 percent of the Renton store staff are full time employees and 26 percent are part time and temporary staff, said the director. Around 50 additional staff were hired temporarily to construct the 30,000 additional square feet for the super store planned at the site. Smith said that the average wage at Walmart in Washington state is $13.47 and the Renton store’s average is higher, at about $14 per hour. He also said the Renton store has a higher ratio than other Walmart stores for full time employees. Smith could not speak to how many employees participated in the company’s range of benefits packages. Although there is no traditional, chain-of-commandtype structure, he said, to file complaints, Smith praised the company’s open door policy, as did his staff.

whipped; pot stolen By DEAN A. RADFORD dradford@rentonreporter.com

A 20-year-old Lynnwood man was pistol-whipped with a revolver in a parking lot on Garden Avenue North Aug. 29, where he planned to show another man his bag full of medical marijuana. Inside an ambulance, the man told officers he had a prescription for the marijuana and had purchased it at a legal dispensary, although he wouldn’t say where. He wouldn’t provide any information about the man he was meeting. He said he wasn’t planning to sell the marijuana, but he just wanted to show the man it was high quality. During the meeting, several men got into the vehicle, where the man was assaulted. A witness saw the assault and the struggle over the bag of marijuana. Marijuana was scattered on the parking lot. The witness honked at the men. They drove off in a Jeep and the witness called 911. The man told officers he would drive himself to get medical

treatment. He wouldn’t say how much marijuana was stolen, but police estimate that he was robbed of several pounds of marijuana.

Grandfather victimized A Renton grandfather got a phone call from his “grandson” Sept. 3, who told him he was in jail and needed $2,160 for bail. The caller told the victim he would soon get another phone call from a bail-bond company in Baltimore, Md. The call came and he wired the money via Western Union. A couple hours later, a call came from the same company, asking for more money. This time they would pick up the money at his home. The 84-year-old victim became suspicious and called police. He had confirmed that his grandson wasn’t in jail.
