‘Radical’ speaker prompts review

Jim Ferrell wins mayoral election By ANDY HOBBS


The Federal Way School Board requested a review of the district’s “Intercultural Speaker Series” after some questioned the inclusion of Dr. Angela Davis as this year’s first speaker. Davis gained national fame in the 1960s as an activist with ties to both the Communist Party USA and the Black Panthers. The announcement of Davis’ speaking engagement for Oct. 16 in Federal Way attracted both praise and criticism from several community members. Some residents lauded the presence of an accomplished educator with a unique historical perspective on cultural issues. Others decried Davis’ controversial past and labeled her as a “radical” with ties to a terrorist organization. On hand at the Oct. 29 school board meeting were Wanda Billingsly, Director of Title I/ LAP programs for the district, and Erin Jones, [ more DAVIS, page 4 ]

Priest’s 44.5 percent (4,407). This year’s race was a rematch from 2010, when Priest, a former state representative, defeated Ferrell with 52 percent of the vote to become Federal Way’s first elected mayor. Ferrell, a King County prosecutor, had successfully led a campaign in 2009 to change the city’s form of government to a “strong mayor” system. In 2013, Ferrell ran again, this time on a platform of public safety and the slogan “We can do better.” Throughout the campaign, and with the backing of the Federal Way Police Officers Guild, Ferrell criticized Priest’s administration for fluctuations in the city’s crime statistics, such as home burglaries and auto theft. Ferrell argued that crime in Federal Way — and a depleted police force — was detrimental to the city’s economic health. “The voters have clearly said public safety matters,” Ferrell told The Mirror. “We need true job growth in this city. We’ll turn Federal Way around. We’re going to shine it up like a new penny.” [ more MAYOR, page 13 ]

Mother discovers meth-tainted apartment By ANDY HOBBS

A Federal Way woman is seeking answers after her apartment tested positive for methamphetamine residue. Upon signing a lease at the Enchanted Woods Apartment Homes last August, Jade Winslow-Fuentez noticed a strong odor akin to cigarette smoke. Management arranged to clean the apartment, she said, but the odor eventually returned. “They put me in a unit that smelled like an Indian casino,” she said. Shortly after, she and her two children — ages 2 and 16 — began coughing and

feeling dizzy. Acting on a hunch, she ordered a home testing kit from, swabbed certain spots in the apartment, then mailed the samples for testing. The results came back positive for methamphetamine. Winslow-Fuentez said neighbors had shared stories of the former tenants, and said they may have used meth in the apartment — unit F104. In response, Guardian Management sent WinslowFuentez a letter, saying that the apartment received a “professional inspection” and tested negative for meth. The letter said there were no

records of drug use or complaints involving the previous tenants. Winslow-Fuentez independently sought a second opinion from Bio Clean Inc., a Lake Stevens business certified by the state Department of Health. Again, the apartment tested positive for meth. Theresa Borst, owner and president of Bio Clean, said meth residue is harmful regardless of whether the drug was smoked or manufactured in the apartment. “The place is contaminated,” Borst said, adding that the management’s initial claim of negative results is questionable. “There’s just [ more METH, page 13 ]

Jade WinslowFuentez holds two pieces of paper: one that confirms a positive test for meth residue in her former apartment, and one from the apartment’s management company that denies any meth residue was found in the dwelling unit at Enchanted Woods. ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror

City honors Sounders’ Neagle By GREG ALLMAIN


Federal Way native and Seattle Sounders player Lamar Neagle was honored during the city council’s Nov. 5 meeting. Councilmember Kelly Maloney reiterated a number of charities and activities that Neagle has helped in recent years. “Tonight we are pleased to recognize Lamar Neagle, a Federal Way native who is achieving things on the soccer field with the Seattle Sounders, while building a legacy off of the field with his community work,” Maloney said. “Most everyone in Federal Way is familiar with Lamar’s achievements on the soccer field, where he has scored eight goals in 30 appearances this year, and helping lead the team to its fifth straight playoff appearance. As a professional athlete, he has been committed to using his status to help his hometown and provides a role model and helping hand for young people.” Maloney touched on Neagle’s part in a past advertising campaign for the city, in which he appeared in a TV commercial and the associated print materials for the campaign. Neagle’s biggest achievements off the field come from his work for youth in the region, Maloney noted. “He has been very active in causes to help young people in Federal Way, and Federal Way’s surrounding communities,” Maloney said. “He has established the Neagle Foundation to support youth through athletics and academics throughout the Seattle area. A member of the Boys and Girls Club as a youth, he has given back to the Boys and Girls Club by raising money for the club and making personal appearances.” Neagle, 26, had raised $7,000 for a number of local organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club, the Washington

He’s also involved with America Scores: Seattle, where he helped put on soccer clinics and raised awareness for their 60-60-60 campaign to promote literacy and community involvement for youth in underserved communities. The city’s recognition came on the heels of Neagle being named the Sounders FC Humanitarian of the Year in recent weeks. “Tonight, the city council and mayor would like to recognize Lamar Neagle as a Federal Way native who is making a difference both on and off the field,” Maloney concluded. Neagle thanked the council for their recognition, saying that the groups he tries to help now were instrumental in leading him to where he is today. “Just growing up in Federal Way, I got the chance to play soccer, introducing me to it,” Neagle said. “And I think if I lived somewhere else, I might not have had that same opportunity. I know I’m blessed to be where I am right now, and I just want to try and give back, and fulfill a couple of kids’ dreams in the process.”

TJ students team with Australia as part of ‘Global Learning Initiative’ cause, Kang said. The two groups are attempting to coordinate bake sales where they’d sell the “cultural” foods from each country. For instance, the Brighton students would sell American foods, while the TJ students would sell traditional Australian foods. “It will be similar to a bake sale, except it’d be a school-wide event,” said Allen Lunde, ASB Secretary at TJ. “We’ve been communicating that, and that’d be the main source of funding.” The funding would go toward an idea of “Go Blue,” said Andrew Min, ASB Treasurer at TJ. “One of the issues at hand is 2.5 billion people on this Earth do not have


Federal Way Public Schools (FWPS) “Global Learning Initiative” was on display during the school board’s Oct. 29 meeting, with students from Thomas Jefferson High School relating their experiences so far with Brighton Secondary College in Melbourne, Australia.

One of their ideas is to make a video with Brighton that would help show how the students united for a

We’re very excited about that because it’s an incredible international initiative.” Dylan DeTray, another TJ student in attendance on Oct. 29, also noted the partnership with Brighton is more than just this fundraiser. “The sophomores at our school…100 students have been assigned a pen pal at Brighton College, so they’ve been corresponding by email,” he said.

as part of the Global Learning Initiative. Neu called Brighton’s principal Julie Podbury a “pistol.” Brighton itself is considered an international leader in developing relationships around the world, Neu said. “They are a school who annually hosts 100 Chinese students a year, and have become a highly recognized school in Australia,” Neu said. “The fact you are partnering with them and moving the work forward with them is extremely exciting.” Neu recently wrote in an essay that the Global Learning Initiative “will ensure our students are prepared for a more competitive, diverse and interconnected

world than the one we grew up in.” To prepare for the initiative, Neu and school board members have embarked on “study missions” to learn from other educators and build relationships abroad. Community members have criticized these overseas trips as junkets, with some saying the money should have funded more urgent matters such as classroom expenses and staffing. Neu has vigorously defended a recent Europe trip, along with previous trips in 2013, as necessary for gaining insight from foreign educators. He said the trips could lead to sponsorships and revenue that fund the initiative.

City reinstates moratorium on marijuana activities By GREG ALLMAIN

The Federal Way City Council unanimously approved a one-year moratorium on marijuana-related businesses and activities within city limits during its Nov. 5 meeting. As the state continues to construct the framework for the new industry, Federal Way is falling back on the moratorium as a way to figure out how to proceed, according to assistant city attorney Peter Beckwith. “The purpose is to maintain the status quo,” Beckwith said. “At this point, the city is not taking a yes or no position, it’s taking a ‘time out, let’s see where we’re at and where we should go with this issue.’ The one year provides for staff and council to have a thoughtful discussion as we move forward.” Beckwith said the moratorium is probably Federal Way’s best bet at this time because of the continuing lack of clarity between the state law and federal law. “Marijuana is legal under state law, but it’s illegal under federal law, so there’s this conflict. The Department of Justice has issued a couple of letters, and there’s been a little bit of vagueness in those letters,” Beckwith said. “On one hand, they say it’s still a crime, that city workers can still be federally prosecuted. At the same time, they say that if the marijuana is thoroughly regulated and enforced, they don’t have an interest in prosecuting.” Another factor playing into the moratorium is the fact that medical marijuana wasn’t addressed by the new law that decriminalized the plant. Beckwith said he expects lawmakers will address

that issue in Olympia when the next legislative session begins. The City of Kent is also in a court battle, Beckwith said, over that city’s move to outright ban collective medical marijuana gardens. The outcome of that case will have repercussions for cities throughout the state. “We’d like to see how that plays out,” he said.

Federal Way is just one of many cities taking the moratorium route, Beckwith said, citing the fact that Auburn and Olympia have done the same already. “Obviously it’s a very complicated issue, and one that we’re trying to be as thoughtful about as possible,” Mayor Skip Priest said. “It’s important to note that while the moratorium

is scheduled for one year, it could in fact be reduced if staff and the council were to come up with a thoughtful decision, given the information.”

Background info The city enacted a moratorium on marijuanarelated activities in 2011, when a number of dispensaries began opening in the

city at that time. Along with that, the laws regarding the aforementioned collective marijuana gardens were also changed that year, prompting a moratorium on those as well. In November 2012, marijuana was legalized in Washington after a statewide vote. In September, the state Liquor Control Board approved a total of

334 marijuana retail outlets statewide, with 61 slated for King County. Federal Way was approved for three legal marijuana stores. Seattle was approved for 21 stores, with 11 “at large” stores approved for the county. A formula based on population determined the number of retail locations for each municipality.

This new grading system is using something called the “Power Law.” The Power Law is supposed to give more weight to the most recent assessment scores (growth trend). However, there is a very grave problem with this new grading system. If you fail the first assessment, you can actually receive a higher final score than if you are

Q&A on hot political headlines There was almost too much going on in the elections to write about everything. So I saved a couple of questions I received until now. Q: What did you think of the school district’s resolution honoring Mayor Skip Priest, for work he did as a legislator, while he was running for re-election as mayor? A: Priest was well known as an advocate for education while in the Legislature, and is worthy of significant recognition. But it should have occurred either two and a half years ago when he left the Legislature, or now, after the election season was over. The board may have been well intended, but a majority of the board and the superintendent were supporters and/ or contributors of Priest’s re-election as mayor. The timing makes it look — in the words of the Public Disclosure Commission — “suspect.” It was either an inappropriate political move to “endorse” Priest by way of additional publicity, or a very ill-considered idea that deserved more thought. District leaders should have known better. Q: What was your reaction to Tony Moore stepping down as president of the Federal Way School Board? A: First of all, I hope that the felony theft allegations against Moore are somehow explainable. I hate to see the district, Moore and his family put through this. That said, the board meeting appeared to be somewhat staged. It appeared designed to give Moore an easy way out

of the more visible chairperson role. The goal appears to be to appease the public with Moore stepping down, and still try and save his seat on the board. Remember, the board was still 3-2 for Moore, unless the election changed the vote count. Q: Why are you so critical of the mayor and city council about implementing the change from a councilmanager form of government to a strong mayor system? A: Because the public voted to make the change, and the mayor and council have not fully implemented it. Elections count. It’s how we decide things. The council has maintained most of the old council-manager form with an elected manager called a mayor. They don’t get to decide after the fact that they don’t like the result. Q: I’m angry about the superintendent’s pay raise and the overseas trips he and the school board took. Could they have handled it better? A: If the school board had implemented the pay raise over a couple of years, the public would have viewed it as the price you pay to get, or keep, a good superintendent. Had the travel been staggered over three years with clear explanations of what was being gained, the public might have been more understanding. It was all just too much in a short period of time, with a public that is still not happy about the grading system. And in an election year? More [ more ROEGNER, page 7 ]

With each election cycle, the belief is the future will be better — better for whom depends on the point of view of the citizen. The challenge for an elected official is getting support from their elected peers for their ideas. This often becomes the politics of process that we as citizens generally detest. As Federal Way residents, what can we expect from the next council and mayor? • Will they collectively get behind the Performing Arts and Conference Center (PACC)? • Will they take the time to understand how this city will be impacted negatively by the addition of low-income housing projects? • Will they rebalance this city’s zoning and update the comprehensive plan to minimize the impact of the currently approved low-income housing projects? • Will they add the staff necessary to properly support this city’s economic development and planning needs? • Will they keep this city’s transportation needs in focus as a priority? • What will they do to balance the increasing need for services, maintenance and capital projects with the city’s revenue streams? I could add to the list but, the point is, the plate is currently full and it will always be full. Every decision made by this council, its predecessors and successors creates legacy factors and management costs that accrue. If certain decisions had been made 20 years ago, Federal Way might be on a path of being a city with an economic vitality similar to Bellevue. It did not happen, but we need to talk proactively about creating an economic vision that focuses on attracting quality middle- and upper-income jobs to this city. This city has the potential to be the city of choice in the South Puget Sound, but do the leaders we elect have the will? As citizens, will we let them have this discussion and invest our community’s value in building a better future? Or will we force them through negativity to sit on their hands and watch as this city’s population continues to grow with a trend toward being economically disadvantaged? If this trend continues, it will overwhelm Federal Way’s resources and for many years negatively stress this city’s tax base and image. Then what? As citizens, we each have our own perspective regarding taxes and government. I’d rather invest in building a better and more progressive community that attracts success-oriented citizens and [ more LIVINGSTON, page 7 ]

● L E T T E r S - Y o u r opinion C o u nts :

To submit an item or photo for publication: email Letters may be edited for style, clarity and length. Due to limited print space, more letters are available online at consistent. Remember that they now have changed things again and we are using 4, 3, 2 and 1 for assessments, and final scores on priority standards. For example, when a student gets the following scores on assessments 1, 4, 3, and 3, the final score calculated by the power law would be a 4. But, if a student receives scores of 4, 3, 3, and 4, the final grade would be a 3. Each has the same last assessment score, but the student who started out

poorly gets a higher grade. That does not make sense. In this scenario, it pays to fail the first assessment, and the consistent learner is penalized. The final score is actually a prediction of what the student’s next score will be based on scores already present. Because of space limitations, I cannot show other inconsistencies in this system. We as parents cannot tolerate such a system for our high school students and middle school students taking some high school

coursework. When there is such an unequal variance in how grades are totaled, this can have a very detrimental effect on the final grades that high school students will be receiving. Of course, this can have a significant impact on post high school plans and scholarship applications. We must hold the district administration and the school board accountable for allowing such a misguided grading system to be used. In April 2013, the board reviewed the current

vendor’s grading system, and the software was not operational at that time. I don’t think many of us would even consider selecting a product so important when it was not operational and could not be tested. Also, please note that this is the third year in a row that we have not had a functional grading system when school started. What makes it worse this year is that the superintendent and the majority of the school board were off gallivanting around the world and not taking care of business here at home. Speak your piece and let [ more LETTERS, page 7 ]

Mr. FW: Will you transfer your kids to another school district? Q: Mr. Federal Way, would you ever think about having your kids transfer out of Federal Way Public Schools? I have friends who are legitimately thinking about it because of the grading system. A: That seems a bit aggressive. But everybody can make their own decisions. Mr. Federal Way hasn’t reached that point of frustration with Federal Way schools just yet, but it’s coming up real soon. Change is inevitable. But, when something gets changed, Mr. Federal Way needs to be able to understand exactly what is being changed. And that’s not happening with the district’s standards based grading system. Mr. Federal Way honestly has no idea how to explain to the children why they get the grades that they get, and that’s extremely frustrating. Mr. Federal Way just wants to understand. It makes no sense that Mr. Federal Way’s kid went from a National Honor Society member last spring to having a 2.5 grade-point

[ ROEGNER from page 6] thought could have gone into the process and the likely public reaction. Anything that is paid for with taxpayer dollars is going to be up for debate. This could have been easily smoothed. Q: What about the South King Fire and Rescue chief ’s son working in the fire department? A: Most of that is internal, and the officers handling the situation have good reputations. But the question of whether relatives should be on the same public payrolls is a public policy question. In general,

[ LIVINGSTON from p. 6] quality businesses. If we continue becoming poverty focused as a community, we will ultimately increase our expenditures for public safety and social services. Neither of those service sectors adds value to the tax base. Bellevue had a tax base valuation of $ 31 billion in 2012 for a population of 130,000, compared to $8.2 billion for Federal Way’s 90,000 residents. Think about it. I know that taxes are a fact of life and we want our elected officials to be fiscally astute. However, I believe there are critical moments

average during the first quarter this year. She hasn’t done anything different than last year. What has changed? She still does her homework every night, studies for tests and still has the same brain she had last year when she earned a 3.8 GPA. Help Mr. Federal Way, please! Decatur High School principal David Brower got the unenviable task of attempting to explain the district’s grading system to a room full of parents at the last school board meeting. And, from what Mr. Federal Way is hearing, there will be even more angry parents at the board’s next meeting, Nov. 12. Brower highlighted the issues of the “traditional” grading system that gives out grades based on how a kid actually performs on assignments and tests, and shared his own personal experience to illustrate the point that the “new” system allows for a “more precise level of learning.” “There were classes in which I got an A, and which, quite frankly, I didn’t learn a whole lot,” he said.

it is a very bad idea. No matter what the department says or how the department says it, the public will not be fully satisfied. If you have relatives on the payroll long enough, eventually someone will be in an awkward position. Ethical violation or not, it usually doesn’t pass the “appearance” question. The commissioners should pass a resolution discontinuing the practice for future hires. Next week, a look at the election results.

Federal Way resident Bob Roegner, a former mayor of Auburn:

and opportunities in the life of every city where they need to invest more tax dollars in building community, infrastructure and cultural resources to avoid economic regression. If the current development and economic trend continues, we all lose property value and will ultimately be taxed proportionally more on the same property to maintain current or reduced service levels. I want our leaders to invest in our future in ways that attract quality development partners.

Federal Way resident Keith Livingston:

“I had learned to play the game.” That quote right there basically sums up Mr. Federal Way’s college career. The only things Mr. Federal Way learned in college was that the person with the fake ID is very popular, journalism might be the easiest degree to receive, and Mr. Federal Way can no longer depend on mommy and daddy to get Mr. Federal Way out of jams. Obviously, Mr. Federal Way doesn’t tell that to the kids. But, Mr. Federal Way’s point is that Brower knew exactly how the grading game was played. He knew what getting an A meant. That’s not the case nowadays in Federal Way. The district implemented the new grading system to boost Federal Way’s graduation rate, which hovers just above 70 percent. That logic just doesn’t compute with Mr. Federal Way. There will always be kids who are not going to “succeed,” especially in a public school district like Federal Way. That’s just the way cookie crumbles. For whatever reason, whether it be things like unsupportive parents, a bad group of friends, lack of motivation or having to take care of younger brothers and sisters, it’s virtually impossible for certain kids to graduate from high school.

[ LETTERS from page 6] your voice be heard loud and clear — this new grading system should immediately be put to rest.

Shelley Scuderi, Kent

Grading system is cheating students Superintendent Neu, regarding the district’s new grading system, it is an obstacle to our children’s success. It is imposing discouragement. There is no incentive because Federal Way kids know they have a slim shot of actually doing well. This system is cheating our kids. It makes them all into failures by lowering the standards and focusing on their weaknesses. What speaks volumes regarding this system is that last year, the state universities deducted one GPA point from students applying from the Federal Way School District. Even the universities know this system is making losers out of our children. And you know full well that most teachers in our district object to this grading system. Last year’s system was bad, and this year’s is worse. Bad to worse! You are taking our schools in the wrong direction, Mr. Superintendent. Why does no one get a say in this except for you and whoever holds the purse-strings? Your system is disheartening, lowering standards, withholding reward and credit for work, instilling fear that their best will count for nothing since their one weak “power point” will make them an overall failure. “Power” point? You have taken away

Mr. Federal Way feels awful for those kids. But everything shouldn’t be turned upside down to “possibly” allow those kids to graduate from high school. Why would you punish kids (and parents) who put forth an effort to “earn” good grades and graduate from high school with hopes of getting into a good college? The easy answer is that you shouldn’t. Obviously, Mr. Federal Way has spent a lot of time and newspaper ink bemoaning the subject of the standards based grading system. But, it’s a subject that is close to Mr. Federal Way’s heart and something that Mr. Federal Way has deemed important to discuss. That’s what a newspaper and open public meetings are for, correct? Oh, and Mr. Federal Way deserves a traditional A+ for that reasoning. Q: Hey Mr. Federal Way, were you happy with how the general election went? Seems like there are some sore losers out there. A: Mr. Federal Way feels great about the election. There were people who Mr. Federal Way voted for who won, and others who Mr. Federal Way didn’t vote for who won. But that’s the beauty of living in the United States of America. We are able to pick

their power to learn and succeed. This system is all wrong. Your decisions have taken away my children’s enjoyment in learning, have taken away my right to decide what is best in my city’s schools, and you are fostering an attitude of pointlessness in all these children. The result of constantly applied discouragement is the likelihood that they will become lazy good-fornothings who have little to contribute to society because you want to make our district the test tube for your “creative” idea. We hold you accountable for jeopardizing our youth’s potential to succeed. Your defense of it — whether because we’ve already invested millions in this, or because you think you are fine-tuning learning strategies — is corrupt. It is politically corrupt, morally corrupt, financially corrupt, and encourages corruption in these kids because they are learning they cannot meet your “standards” without cheating the system or giving up altogether. They know they are always on the brink of failure. What kind of future should they then expect? And what will you say for yourself when there are tremendous rates of failure throughout the district? You are being urged to put a stop to this grading system immediately. Return to what works — what motivates our children’s learning experience. Listen to the teachers, the administrators, the principals, the counselors, the students, the parents and the people of Federal Way! Concerned and rightly angry parents,

E. and S. Erkelens, Federal Way

whoever we want to represent us. Mr. Federal Way can fill in whatever black box Mr. Federal Way wants on the ballot. It’s a great and empowering thing. Elections are like sports. There are winners and there are losers. It makes Mr. Federal Way extremely upset when candidates (or athletes, for that matter) blame outside forces when they lose. Stuff like that proves you didn’t deserve to win. Take some responsibility. It’s very easy to criticize the referees, bad coaching or the local newspaper for your loss. But that is the wrong thing to do. Sure, Mr. Federal Way was disappointed when Mr. Federal Way was forced to give a concession speech Tuesday night after Mr. Federal Way’s long and expensive write-in candidacy for the Federal Way School Board fell thousands of votes short. But, Mr. Federal Way has nobody to blame but Mr. Federal Way. Mr. Federal Way accepts his election loss like a man and will continue to make fun of things anonymously. Q: Mr. Federal Way, what is your “real” name? A: None of your business.


Orion is proud to pay competitive aerospace wages I would like to set the record straight in regard to statements made in the Oct. 31 letter to the editor (online) by Ann Marie Clarke in which she states that Orion “pays minimum wage to most employees.” The impression that manufacturing wages are not commensurate may have started as a result of an article in The Mirror on Dec. 5, 2012, which discussed Orion’s pending move to the City of Auburn. In the article, City of Federal Way Economic Development Director Patrick Doherty was quoted as saying, “professional jobs pay higher salaries than manufacturing jobs and result in higher purchasing power for those employees.” In fact, Orion has very few minimum wage jobs. Among Orion’s 265 employees, most are skilled aerospace machinists, engineers, supply chain specialists, customer service professionals, human services professionals and managers — many of whom have advanced degrees and who make salaries commensurate with their peers in other sectors. Orion is a supplier to Boeing and other Tier One OEMs, and we compete with them for the same employees. Because of this, we offer competitive wages in order to attract and retain qualified and highly skilled employees. The family wage jobs we provide are reflective of the wages seen throughout Washington’s aerospace industry and provide our [ more LETTERS, page 9 ]

Maloney, Burbidge, Moore win council races By ANDY HOBBS

Early election results show Jeanne Burbidge, Kelly Maloney and Martin Moore leading their respective races for Federal Way City Council. In position 2, Maloney will retain her seat by winning about 60.8 percent of the vote (5,533 as of Thursday) against challenger Mark Koppang, who netted 39 percent (3,558). Maloney was appointed to the council in January to replace Linda Kochmar, who was elected to the state Legislature. Maloney, who is a marketing director for Orion Industries, said her initiatives — such as rebranding the city’s image and attracting a college — have resonated with voters, based on feedback she received. “I’m excited at being able to move Federal Way forward,” Maloney said Tuesday, noting that she worked hard to engage voters and listen to their concerns. “I communicated as much as I could, every opportunity I got.” Koppang has not yet conceded. “I am committed to serving the city of Federal Way in whatever way I can and I am honored by the support I have received this election,” Koppang said in an email to The Mirror. “With the majority of the votes cast still uncounted, I am not ready to concede, though I do recognize the deficit is large. Regardless of the final outcome, I look forward to serving our community with Kelly and the rest of the candidates.” In position 4, incumbent Jeanne Burbidge will win her bid for a fourth term with 67.5 percent of the vote (6,317 as of Thursday) over challenger John Fairbanks, who has about 32.3 percent (3,017).

Pictured left to right during an election night gathering at Poverty Bay Coffee: Federal Way School Board candidates Carol Gregory and Geoffery McAnalloy, and Federal Way City Council candidate Martin Moore. All three candidates won their races. ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror Federal Way City Councilmember Kelly Maloney, center, is surrounded by her campaign team and supporters Tuesday night at CR Floors. Maloney won the race for city council position 2. ANDY HOBBS, The Mirror life. Moore, who is a legislative aide to Freeman, has worked on several successful local campaigns over the years. In his campaign, Moore said he “doorbelled” about 8,000 homes and did a better job of connecting with voters. “I wanted to run because I think we need a different style of leadership,” Moore said Tuesday, noting that voters know he supports the proposed PACC. “I’m eager to get our downtown moving.” Noble-Gulliford has not conceded the race. On Tuesday, she said that serving on the council was tougher that she thought it would be, and that there was a lot to learn. “We campaigned really hard,” she said. “I did the best I could for Federal Way.”

Burbidge told The Mirror that her experience likely appealed to voters. She said that a lot of work remains, especially for the downtown area, which needs investments like the proposed Performing Arts and Conference Center (PACC) to bring real economic activity. “If we don’t, the future can be even more challenging than it already is,” Burbidge said Tuesday. As of press time, Fairbanks had not conceded. In position 6, first-time candidate Martin Moore will win the race with about 55.9 percent of the vote (5,167 as of Thursday) over Diana Noble-Gulliford, who has about 44 percent (4,059). Noble-Gulliford was appointed to the position in January to replace Roger Freeman, who was elected to the state Legislature. Moore said he was thankful that his parents, Allen and Sylvia, adopted him from Bulgaria and raised him in Federal Way with a chance at a better

McAnalloy and Gregory win school board races By ANDY HOBBS

The Federal Way School Board will see two new faces as Geoffery McAnalloy and Carol Gregory lead their respective races. In position 1, McAnalloy leads with about 52.3 percent of the vote (7,136 as of Thursday) against incumbent Ed Barney, who has 47.4 percent (6,466). Barney was first elected to the board in 2001, while this is McAnalloy’s first candidacy for public office. McAnalloy, who works as a post sales engineer for CenturyLink, had a more visible campaign with advertisements and signage. He also received the endorsement of the Federal Way Education Association. McAnalloy said he connected with voters through

his advocacy for fixing the school district’s grading system and addressing the low graduation rates. “I’ve heard over and over about ‘the whole child’ piece,” he said Tuesday, referring to a holistic approach to education. McAnalloy said another message that may have resonated was his willingness to represent voices from multiple facets of the school district and community. Barney and the school board had faced criticism over a recent trip to Europe as part of the Global Learning Initiative. The Mirror sent a message seeking comment from Barney. In position 4, Gregory will win with about 54.7 percent (7,559 as of Thursday) over Medgar Wells, who has 45 percent (6,231). [ more SCHOOL BOARD p. 12 ]

FWHS grad Marla Martenson earns award for her memoir Courtesy of Bob Sims

Federal Way High 1980 graduate and author Marla Martenson is drawing praise and acclaim throughout the world for her new book, “Hearts on the Line.” She received an honorable mention award in the biography/autobiography category at the Paris Book Festival last March and the Readers’ Favorite gold book award last month for her memoir. “I was so excited to be chosen as a gold winner because this memoir is so close to my heart,” said Martenson by email. “It is my life story and to be recognized was thrilling.” Martenson, a Los Angeles-based matchmaker and speaker, describes her book as “a tale of someone who lost her job during the recession and pulled herself up by the bootstraps, figuring out a way to be her own boss and flourish financially.” “I think my book is such a great story for our times,” added Martenson, who has written five books. “People are reinventing themselves, starting businesses and

creating their lives to be more fulfilling.” She is the Marla Martenson daughter of Donna Reed, a longtime Federal Way resident. Gregory, who was backed by the [ SCHOOL BOARD from page 10] Both are running for the seat vacated by Angela Griffin.

During her campaign, she stressed that the school board should hold the superintendent and district accountable for aspects such as the controversial grading system. “The message is that the school

board needs to be transparent with the public and prepare the public for change,” Gregory said Tuesday. “It’s going to be a hard job, but I’m ready to go.” The Mirror sent a message seeking comment from Wells.

Daring duty from the skies: ‘Doolittle Raider’ recalls historic attack on Japan

By MARK KLAAS Editor, Auburn Reporter It was daring, difficult and dangerous – a mission like no other. Military historians claim the Doolittle Raid on April 18, 1942 changed the course of World War II in the Pacific. Edward Saylor was there, one of 80 volunteer crewmen who defied the odds by pulling off the surprise bombing raid of the Japanese homeland. Such a feat did much to steady a nation still reeling from Japan’s devastating attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The United States’ retaliatory, daylight strike proved Japan’s vulnerability and provided a vital morale boost for a resilient nation thrown into battle. “Some say we changed the course of the war. I guess we probably did, to some degree,” said Saylor, of Enumclaw, at 93, one of only four original “Raiders” living today. “We did what we had to do.” Saylor, a sergeant flight engineer on plane No. 15, known as “TNT,” shared his story of duty, survival and honor last week at the Auburn Avenue Theater as part of the City of Auburn’s Veterans Day Observance, a prelude to Saturday’s parade down Main Street. Saylor, who grew up on a cattle ranch in Montana, enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Forces to learn a trade and to serve his country. The call of duty lured the young airman to volunteer for a special mission designed by Lt. Col.

James “Jimmy” Doolittle. “We didn’t know what it was all about. We had no idea,” Saylor said. “We thought probably we were going to go some place where there were short runways to fight the war ... but it turned out to be Japan.” Saylor soon discovered it would be a dangerous flight, a daylight raid without an escort. “I didn’t expect to survive the mission. The odds were too great,” he said. “The more I think about it, the more amazing it becomes. At the time, we were well trained ... the war was on. It’s just what you do. ... We went into the front door of the enemy.”

Saylor was aboard one of 16 twin-engined B-25 Mitchell bombers that launched from the flight deck of the USS Hornet, climbing into a 30-mph headwind to reach a cruising altitude of just under 1,500 feet over the deep Western Pacific Ocean. None of the B-25 pilots, including Doolittle, had ever taken off from a carrier. Crews had just enough fuel to reach their military targets in Japan and continue westward to land in China. The raid met little resistance, caused negligible material damage, but it succeeded in its goal of helping American morale and casting doubt in Japan on the ability of the Japanese military leaders. It prompted Japan’s military leaders to withdraw the nation’s powerful aircraft carrier force from the Indian Ocean to defend their home islands. The raid also contributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto’s decision to attack Midway in the Central Pacific, where the U.S. Navy routed the Imperial Japanese Navy. After the attack, the bombers, running low on fuel and facing deteriorating weather, tried to reach intended bases in China. Fifteen aircraft made it to the Chinese coast, where their crews crash landed or bailed out. One crew flew to the Soviet Union. All but three of the crew survived, but the aircraft were lost. The Japanese Army captured eight Continued on page 16

PTSD in the U.S. military: Vet Center offers free counseling in Federal Way Mirror staff reports Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has taken a new shape in the U.S. military, especially as servicemen and women endure multiple deployments to war zones in the Middle East. The disorder stems from exposure to the threat of death or injury, such as in combat, accidents and natural disasters. Veterans with PTSD will re-experience trauma in their memories and dreams. They suffer from depression that often hinders readjustment to society — and sometimes leads to homelessness or suicide. Veterans account for 20 percent of the nearly 32,000 suicide deaths in the U.S. per year, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Sexual assault also triggers PTSD. The Department of Defense estimates that 26,000 military sexual assaults occurred in 2012, but less than 3,400 of those cases were reported. Victims include both women and men. Last year, more than 500,000 military veterans received free treatment for PTSD. The Federal Way Vet Center opened in 2011 to provide this social service, at no cost, to eligible veterans and their families in South King County. This includes grief support for spouses and families whose loved one died during active military duty.

As a division of the VA, vet centers are found nationwide. The centers evolved from drop-in clinics created by soldiers who returned from Vietnam in the 1970s. In fact, a lot of Vietnam veterans continue to seek treatment in 2013. Dr. Amy Morris, team leader at the Federal Way Vet Center, said the traumatic stress from combat can resurface in a veteran’s retirement years, once the structure of a daily work routine is gone. Morris has also noticed generational differences in PTSD and veterans, specifically with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Multiple deployments to the Middle East also means multiple attempts to reintegrate into society. “Going into combat is hard enough,” Morris said. “Each conflict we enter has its own set of circumstances that seems to express itself differently in PTSD.” Learn more… The Federal Way Vet Center is located at 32020 32nd Ave. S., Suite 110, just east of the I-5 exit at South 320th Street. The vet center provides services including individual and group counseling, marital and family counseling, military sexual trauma counseling, and bereavement counseling.

Major General Timothy Lowenberg to speak at Veterans Day tribute in Federal Way

By Greg Allmain

Major General Timothy Lowenberg is slated to be the keynote speaker at the fourth annual Honoring Our Own event on Veterans Day. The event will run 6 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 11 at Todd Beamer High School — and is one that Lowenberg said he was more than happy to be a part of, especially given the trials and tribulations many veterans face these days. “Any opportunity to acknowledge the service of the millions of men and women who have worn the uniform of their country is always an honor and a privilege,” Lowenberg said. “There’s a rich history to the observance in Federal Way, and I’m just proud to be a part of that.” Lowenberg plans to speak about the history of Veterans Day, and the changing face of the military in today’s society, along with the aforementioned set of challenges that today’s veterans face, whether deployed or at home. Lowenberg officially retired in 2012 after being the secondlongest serving Adjutant General of Washington State, holding that post from 1999 to 2012. His career spanned four decades, with much of his time spent at Joint Base Lewis McChord. Even after that lifetime of ser-

vice, Lowenberg still gives to his country by serving as an advisor for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee on Disability Compensation. “We’re expected to provide advice and counsel on subjects ranging over the entire span of Veterans Administration actives,”

“There’s a rich history to the observance in Federal Way, and I’m just proud to be a part of that.” —Major General Timothy Lowenberg

he said. “That’s a big charter, obviously. It’s an extraordinarily large and complex federal agency, but it touches the lives of thousands upon thousands of men and women across the country.” With so many obstacles facing veterans and their families these days, it seems as though any effort at trying to help veterans is a drop of water in an ocean. While that may be mostly true, Lowenberg noted people can help veterans in simple ways. “I think everyone can begin by simply taking the step to acknowledge the people around them who have served or are serving,” he said. “Only one percent of the entire American population today serves in uniform. And quite often (the people closest to them) don’t have any

personal life experience through which they can relate to what the veterans have sacrificed and experienced in serving their nation.” This simple act, Lowenberg believes, can provide untold benefits to veterans. “Just acknowledging that someone is a veteran, and showing interest in their service, and learning from them what it’s like to serve, and through them, (people can learn) what challenges they confront transitioning from the military to civilian life,” he said. “Just that expression of outreach, that personal touch, that personal connection, is something that every single community member can do.”

2.5 million cards and counting:

Operation Write Home reaches U.S. troops worldwide


Sandy Allnock founded Operation Write Home to help overseas military personnel do just that — send cards to their loved ones. Every day, the organization ships hundreds of handmade greeting cards for all holidays and occasions, along with cards of gratitude, across the world. As of last week, Operation Write Home has sent 2.5 million cards and counting. Allnock’s home in Federal Way is the hub and headquarters. Each day, the mail carrier delivers three dolly loads of cards that arrive from all over the U.S. Allnock boxes and ships those cards to servicemen and women in countries including Afghanistan, Iraq, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Jordan, Spain and Cuba. The Republic of Djibouti in Africa was recently added to her list. During the peak holiday season, Allnock works 16-hour days as the Christmas deadline approaches. However, the project requires a year-round effort, and several volunteers assist Allnock. “There’s no plan to stop until the troops are all home and don’t need us anymore,” she said. “As long as there’s a need, we plan to continue.” The project has grown significantly during the

Federal Way resident Sandy Allnock founded Operation Write Home to help overseas military send cards to their loved ones. Since 2007, Allnock’s organization has shipped nearly 2.5 million cards. Photos by Andy Hobbs/Federal Way Mirror

past year. In August, Allnock quit her job as a graphic designer at World Vision in order to work full time on Operation Write Home. Dozens of

boxes are stacked in Allnock’s garage, and she recently combined two bedrooms to create one large studio for the project. In the meantime, Allnock will focus on raising money through donations and grants to make the non-profit organization financially sustainable. The project started in 2007. As an avid crafter, Allnock teamed up with her friends to send extra handmade cards to U.S. soldiers after hearing about a Texas woman who had done the same. Today, Allnock routes the cards to nearly 200 military contacts who represent groups as small as a 30-soldier platoon to as large as an entire crew aboard a ship at sea. Cards also reach civilian workers who are deployed. Operation Write Home encourages children to write “AnyHero” letters that include drawings. Allnock hopes to someday see Federal Way or the school district devote a day toward crafting and sending cards to troops. For now, she will continue nurturing a labor of love that’s guided by faith. “I kind of took that flying leap off the cliff,” she said about quitting her job to focus on Operation Write Home. “I’m excited to see what the next thing is going to be.”

Love for sport drives figure skater By CASEY OLSON

Volleyball: Christian Faith wins 1B crown


TJ grad Jordan Lee qualifies for the Pacific Coast Sectionals later this month in Oakland

Figure skating is a sport that’s easy to fall in love with. The athletes seem to float over the ice like a dancer moving across the dance floor. But figure skating is not a sport that is easily accessible, especially in a city like Federal Way. It’s not like baseball, basketball or football, where there’s a field or gym at every school. Skating rinks are few and far between in Western Washington. Like many others, Jordan Lee fell in love with figure skating after watching the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. “I told my mom instantly, I wanted to be just like the skaters I saw on TV and signed up for group lessons right away,” said Lee, 18. The rest is history. Lee has spent the past 11 years dedicated to figure skating and has won a pair of gold medals during her time on the ice. She trains at the Sprinker Recreation Center in Spanaway. Lee spends two hours a day, five days a week practicing at the rink. Lee graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in the spring after attending Totem Middle School and Spring Valley Montessori. Lee is currently working through her freshman year at Pacific Lutheran University. “Figure skating is my passion and I wouldn’t be who I am today without it,” she said. “Every day I have on the ice, I remember why I started skating and have continued to skate for so long. It gives me a joy nothing else does and has

Pushing myself to reach my goals and experience the feeling of success and accomplishment are just some of the amazing things skating has offered me.” Lee will accomplish another goal this month when she skates at the 2014 Pacific Coast Sectional Figure Skating Championships in Oakland. The most prestigious event on the West Coast will run Nov. 19-23 in California. Lee qualified for sectionals last month by finishing in fourth place

at the Pacific Northwest Regional Championships, which were held at the Sprinker Recreation Center. “I was so surprised when I found out because I wasn’t expecting it at all and it was so far off from my original intentions for regionals,” Lee said. “This is a huge accomplishment for me and I am extremely glad I got this opportunity.” But everything hasn’t been easy for Lee on the ice. A little over two years ago, Lee broke her ankle during practice and was forced to undergo surgery to insert metal screws to fix [ more skating page 29 ]

The Christian Faith High School volleyball team is a full-fledged dynasty. The 2013 version of the Eagles won their fifth-straight SeaTac 1B League championship on Oct. 31. Christian Faith won three matches during the league tournament at Evergreen Lutheran in Puyallup. The Eagles beat Rainier Christian High School in the league championship match, 25-12, 25-15, 25-17. Christian Faith also swept Mercer Island’s Northwest Yeshiva, 25-3, 25-17, 25-12, and downed Quilcene in the semifinals, 25-16, 25-13, 25-15. The Eagles finished the regular season in the SeaTac League with a perfect 9-0 record and are 16-5 overall on the year. Katrice Pond dominated during the league tournament. The Federal Way native finished the three matches with 56 kills, 22 aces and 19 digs for the Eagles. Tacoma’s Freda Ireigbe had 26 kills, six aces and 18 digs, and Auburn’s Ciera Zimmerman ended up with 82 assists, nine kills and 10 aces for Christian Faith. The team also includes Samantha Tercero, Jasmine Tercero, Zimmerman, [ more volleyball page 31 ]

Wrap up: Several runners qualify for state meet Beamer, Federal Way boys sending a pair; Ramey snags two more district swim titles By CASEY OLSON

Football: Postseason kicks off tonight Jefferson travels to No. 2 Skyline and Federal Way will face EdmondsWoodway on the road



Jefferson (5-4) vs. Skyline (8-1)

Thomas Jefferson running back Tyrell Williams and the Raiders will travel to Skyline at 7:30 p.m. tonight (Nov. 8) to play in the round of 32 of the state playoffs. file photo

It wasn’t the way the Thomas Jefferson football team wanted to qualify for the program’s second-ever appearance in the postseason. On Nov. 1, Tahoma downed the Raiders, 21-13, in a must-win game for the Bears. The win gave Tahoma the SPSL North’s third seed and dropped the Raiders to fourth place. Jefferson (5-4) will travel to Sammamish to face second-ranked Skyline in a winner-to-state, loser-out game at the Class 4A Bi-District Playoffs on Friday night. The Raiders jumped out front on their second possession of the game when they used a 10-play drive, which culminated with a 1-yard touchdown run by Tyrell Williams to put TJ up 7-0. The Bears then drove down the field to tie the game at 7-7 on a 2-yard run from Jerome Woods, which is how [ more football page 31 ]

Federal Way (7-2) vs. Edmonds-Woodway (8-1)

When: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8 Where: Edmonds Stadium What’s at stake: A berth into the first round of the 16-team Class 4A State Football Playoffs. The winner of the Federal Way/Edmonds-Woodway game will play the winner of a game between Jefferson and Skyline. The TJ/Skyline winner will host the firstround game on Nov. 15 or 16. How they got here: Sixth-ranked Federal Way (7-2) finished third in the SPSL South with regular-season losses to Graham-Kapowsin and Curtis in the final week of the season. It was the first time since 2010 that the Eagles didn’t win the SPSL South title. Seventh-ranked Edmonds-Woodway (8-1) finished up as the secondplace team in the Wesco League after losing to Lake Stevens in the league championship game last week in a shootout, 53-49. Why Edmonds-Woodway will win: The Warriors feature a highpowered offense that averages more than 415 yards a game, including 267 yards a game on the ground. Edmonds-Woodway has been led all season by senior running back Junior Opoku-Mensah. The 5-foot9, 175-pounder has 1,453 yards and 21 touchdowns. He has been over 125 yards in every game except one. Opoku-Mensah also has multiple touchdowns in seven games, including five during a 24-carry, 270-yard

performance against Mariner. Senior quarterback Davis Giles has 1,384 yards through the air and 18 touchdowns and only six interceptions. His main targets are Jason Smarr (11 catches, 503 yards, 6 TDs), Scott Myricks (18 catches, 336 yards, 6 TDs) and Theo Lebesis (10 catches, 210 yards, 4 TDs). The Warriors’ defense had two shutouts, but gave up 14 or more points in five games, including 53 last week against Lake Stevens. Senior Connor McCole has four interceptions at defensive back and senior linebacker Mac Mclachan leads Edmonds-Woodway with 65 total tackles. Why Federal Way will win: The Eagles are going to score points. They have been doing it all season. In their seven wins, Federal Way has averaged 47 points a game. But, in their two losses to Graham-Kapowsin and Curtis, the Eagles have scored only 14 points a game. Like they have all year, Federal Way will be leaning heavily on junior Chico McClatcher. The all-everything running back has scored a grand total of 24 touchdowns this season, including touchdowns in every way possible: rushing, passing, receiving, defensive and kick returns. The Eagles will also count on senior quarterback/wide receiver/running back Keenan Curran, who has over 2,000 yards of total offense and is also one of the best defensive backs in the state. The game will be won on the defensive side of the ball, where Federal Way struggled during their two losses.

When: 7:30 p.m., Friday Where: Skyline High School What’s at stake: A berth into the first round of the 16-team Class 4A State Football Playoffs. The winner of the TJ/Skyline game will host the winner of a game between Federal Way and Edmonds-Woodway on Nov. 15 or 16. Why Skyline will win: The Spartans definitely have a ton more football tradition than TJ. Since the 2000 season, Skyline has won a grand total of seven state championships and finished second two more times. In comparison, TJ has never advanced into the 16-team state tournament in the school’s history. The Spartans’ only loss came against the 11th-ranked team in the nation, Bellevue, in the opening game of the season. Since then, Skyline has dominated all eight of their contests, outscoring its opponents, 282-102. Skyline is led by quarterback Kilton Anderson, who leads the Spartans in rushing and passing. Anderson has 1,317 yards passing and eight touchdowns and 453 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. But the Spartans are different than in years’ past. They are built on defense and not around quarterbacks like Jake Heaps and Max Browne. Senior Josh Wright leads the group. The 205-pound senior has an eyepopping 18 sacks in Skyline’s nine games. He also leads the team with 67 total tackles. Junior Cameron Saffle, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound lineman, has 10 sacks. Why Jefferson will win: Despite making only two postseason appearances in the school’s history, they have both come in the last three years. So, this edition of the Raiders shouldn’t be overwhelmed by playing in a loser-out game. There were several who played on that 2011 TJ team. But, they will have to go on the road and defeat Skyline, which has been the top 4A football program in the state for the last decade. This will be a tall order, especially for a team that lost four games during the regular season, including a 15-14 loss to Beamer in a non-league contest. But, if they are to pull the upset, Jefferson will need a huge day from its defense, which has been a pretty solid group all season long. Jefferson gave up under 10 points in four of its nine games and pitched two shutouts. Offensively, the Raiders count on senior quarterback Niko DelaCruz to provide a lot of the leadership. But DelaCruz has been hobbled by nagging injuries during the end of the season. Junior Zach Grayson is TJ’s leading rusher and has two separate games of
