Gov. Jay Inslee, along with the state Legislature, put together a package to help secure an unprecedented commitment from Boeing to assemble its 777X jetliner — and the plane’s carbon fiber wings — in Washington state. However, the Machinists Union roundly rejected the deal Nov. 13 by a majority of 67 percent. Many union members cited the proposed changes to pension plans and other benefits as being the deciding factor in their “no” vote. The union’s vote leaves the whole deal in limbo. “Winning the 777X will secure tens of thousands of jobs and yield huge economic benefits for generations to come,” Inslee had announced in a news release. “And [ more BOEING, page 13 ]

Operation Warm: Cops and firefighters donate coats


Federal Way police teamed up with South King Fire and Rescue to deliver winter coats for children at Olympic View Elementary School as part of Operation Warm. On Nov. 13, firefighters and police officers brought 200 new coats for students in grades three, four and five. An additional 58 coats were donated for the school to keep on hand, just in case a student needs one. Ryan Herrera, president of IAFF Local 2024, said he has applied for grants in hopes of a larger donation

in 2014. The goal is to provide coats for at least one entire school in Federal Way. Paul Marquardt, principal at Olympic View Elementary, said students often come to school without warm clothing. Olympic View has one of the highest poverty rates in the district. Nearly 88 percent of the school’s 420 students qualify for free or reduced lunch. In comparison, about 56 percent of students in the entire school district qualify for free and reduced lunch. Marquardt said Wednesday’s donation gave students a chance to interact with police and firefighters in a positive setting.


A packed house once again greeted the Federal Way School Board as parents, taxpayers and students spoke up about the continued glitches they’ve all experienced with the controversial standards based grading (SBG) system’s implementation and execution this year. According to the district, SBG allows for a more precise level of learning by requiring students to

County budget will enhance aquatic center, Little League fields in FW

(Friends United to Shelter the Indigent, Oppressed and Needy). The budget will enhance the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center, which has hosted several national and international events in recent years, including the U.S. Olympic Diving Trials and NCAA and Pac-12 championships. According to von Reichbauer’s office, the allocated budget funds will cover several facility upgrades and also instructs the county’s Parks Division, which oversees the aquatic center, to spend between $20,000 and $100,000 to study potential solutions to the parking issues created by the increasing number of spectators. In addition, von Reichbauer thanked Federal Way City Councilmembers Kelly Maloney and Susan Honda for working collaboratively with the county on solving the parking issues. “The Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center has had a major positive

economic impact in Federal Way and all of South King County,” said von Reichbauer in a news release. “With these changes, it will remain one of the finest swim and dive facilities in the nation for many years to come.” The budget also preserves King County’s AAA bond rating by not using the county’s cash reserves or tapping the rainy day fund.

From staff reports

The King County Council unanimously approved the county’s 2014 operating and capital budget. This budget includes a $718 million General Fund Budget, of which 73 percent is directed toward public safety and criminal justice programs. King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer announced that Federal Way will benefit from the budget. The budget includes funding for new equipment at the Federal Way National Little League fields and several area playgrounds. Other items include improvements at the county’s Public Health Center in Federal Way, along with contracts with programs such as FUSION

Protesters blast Walmart’s wages and policies aimed at getting Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, to reform its policies. On Nov. 7, more than 50 people were arrested in Los Angeles during a protest against Walmart’s wages. Despite last year’s protest on Black Friday, the traditional shopping day after Thanksgiving, Walmart reported its biggest Black Friday sales ever. “It was proven last night – and again today – that the OUR Walmart group doesn’t speak for the 1.3 million Walmart associates,” according to a Nov.

Press reports are now exposing what we have said all along – the large majority of protesters aren’t even Walmart workers.” According to the company’s website, Walmart is ramping up for another big Black Friday in 2013.

For the second year in a row, local Walmart employees protested the company’s wages and policies in the weeks leading up to Black Friday. The Nov. 12 protest, held at the Walmart on South 314th Street in Federal Way, was organized by OUR Walmart and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) chapter 21. Dozens of supporters and employees from local Walmart branches, including Federal Way, called for higher wages and blasted so-called illegal retaliation tactics by the company against those who “speak out.” The sign-waving employees and supporters marched through the parking lot, chanting battle cries such as “They say roll back, we say fight back” and “Whose store? Our store!” Store manager Josh Proctor informed the protesters that they were not allowed to demonstrate on private property. However, the group pushed forward to the store’s entrance. A pair of employees then issued a

“coaching” to the manager. “Coaching” is the term Walmart applies to disciplinary write-ups for wayward employees, who are also known as associates. In Tuesday’s coaching, an employee displayed an oversized form that listed the manager’s infraction as “bullying/intimidation.” A picket rally then ensued in front of the store for about 30 minutes. Mary Watkins, who has worked at the Federal Way Walmart for 14 years, said she was unfairly placed on a 12-week unpaid leave of absence earlier this month. Watkins had been ill the year before and had also filed an ethics complaint, she said. Upon returning to work in July, Watkins lost her full-time status and became a part-time cashier, she said. Although she is still employed, Watkins said co-workers should unionize to maximize protection. Walmart employees need medical benefits and better pay, she said. “We need to stand up so that Walmart can change,” Watkins said. “I want to live better.” The protest dovetails with a national campaign

Weyerhaeuser Co. sells Quadrant Homes Mirror staff reports



Federal Way-based timber giant Weyerhaeuser Company has announced the sale of its homebuilding division, which includes the local Quadrant Homes. The sale to TRI Pointe Homes Inc. is worth about $2.7 billion. This includes a $700 million cash payment to Weyerhaeuser, according to the company. The sale will allow Weyerhaeuser to focus on “forest products businesses to deliver further value to our shareholders,” said CEO Doyle Simons in a news release. In June, the company had announced it was considering selling the homebuilding division WRECO (Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company). WRECO ranks among the top 20 homebuilders in the country and brought in $1.1 billion in revenue in 2012 — a 28 percent increase, according to a report in the New York Times. WRECO includes five main homebuilding subsidiaries: • Quadrant Homes (Puget Sound area) • Pardee Homes (California and Nevada) • Maracay Homes (Arizona) • Trendmaker Homes (Texas) • Winchester Homes (Maryland and Virginia) Weyerhaeuser is a real estate investment trust, and timber holdings are the company’s main asset, with most profits going to investors. In 2012, Weyerhaeuser Company generated $7.1 billion in revenue and em-

It also has partnered with World Vision to provide disaster supply kits and lumber donations to rebuild disaster areas.”

Supt. Neu, your company is broken A lot of press was given to the pay increase that Federal Way Public Schools Superintendent Robert Neu received. It was about a 20 percent increase ($42,000), raising his annual pay to $240,000. The rationale given for the raise was that it was commensurate with what a CEO would make at an equivalent-sized company. I’m not sure I agree with comparing the Federal Way school district to a public company. Public companies face competition, and if they are inefficient and ineffective, they fail and are replaced by a better company. Your “company,” Mr. Neu, is

Frustration, change and Dems According to voters, the local election theme for 2013 turned out to be “frustration, change and Democrats.” Even though none of the positions up for election were partisan, political affiliation did play an important role as the public expressed its frustration with the status quo. The result was change, and the beneficiaries were mostly Democrats. Countywide, voter turnout was about 40 percent. In Federal Way, it was about 33 percent. Pre-election projections suggested that a turnout above 27 percent would benefit the Democrats, but a turnout below 27 percent would benefit Republicans. The big change was in the mayor’s office as Democratic Deputy Mayor Jim Ferrell captured 55 percent of the vote compared to incumbent Republican Mayor Skip Priest’s 45 percent. It was neither an easy win nor an overnight win for Ferrell. It came about through a combination of hard work and Priest’s missteps — which included two investigations, use of dated police statistics, and an unexpected impact from the Pinewood murders and pygmy goats. Ferrell was a credible opponent, but as one well connected source said, “this was Priest’s race to lose.” Priest never was able to define the difference between himself and Ferrell. Conversely, Ferrell was able to co-op public safety from the incumbent as an issue by get-

ting the support of the Federal Way Police Officers Guild, and then play “fiscal conservative” to Priest’s “big spender” position on the proposed Performing Arts and Conference Center (PACC). That’s a noticeable role reversal for partisans. In the council races, appointed incumbent Kelly Maloney won comfortably at nearly 61 percent over Mark Koppang’s 39 percent. Both are conservatives, but Koppang served as chair of local Republicans, which given the turnout, probably moved the Democrats toward Maloney, who appeared unaffiliated. Maloney likely picked up early and significant support after her complaint against Mayor Priest’s behavior gave her credibility with many Democrats, women and independent voters. Koppang worked hard, but was never able to move voters his way. Democrat Martin Moore upset appointed incumbent Republican Diana Noble-Gulliford with 55 percent to 44 percent of the vote — about the same margin as the mayoral race. Moore was shy on grand ideas, but strong on passion and hard work. The wins by Ferrell and Moore also may have generational overtones, and suggest a changing of the guard. Longtime Federal Way City Councilmember Jeanne Burbidge was re-elected with 67 percent over first-time candidate and local businessman [ more ROEGNER, page 7 ]

Many people are surprised when I tell them that we have a Truancy Dropout Prevention Unit in the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. “Shouldn’t you be going after the “Truancy is a red flag serious criminals instead of kids that leads who skip school?” they ask. The truth is that when it comes to dropping out of school, to protecting public safety, there is no better strategy than making and increases the chance sure that every child succeeds in for risky school. Under Washington law, school behaviors.” attendance is mandatory up until Dan Satterberg, age 16. This is part of a package King County of laws called the “Becca laws” Prosecutor named after a 13-year-old girl who dropped out of school, ran away from home and was murdered by a sex offender in Spokane in the mid-1990s. The Legislature knew, as we know now, that dropping out of school puts young people at an extreme risk of being crime victims and criminal offenders. In fact, young people who drop out of high school are five times more likely to go to prison than their classmates who earn a high school diploma. People who attend some amount of college are five times less likely to go to prison than those with a high school education. Every layer of education is like a protective blanket that protects the potential of that young person and protects our community. Washington’s truancy law says that any child who misses seven days of school in a month, or 10 in a quarter, is officially “truant.” Although school districts are required to file a truancy petition at this point, they are also required to take steps to re-engage students in school. My office works with school districts throughout King County to host workshops designed to understand why the student is missing school. At the end of the workshop, the school, the student, and the parents or guardian sign an agreement designed to re-engage the student with an educational track. The law is a court-based scheme, but I am more interested in having the youth attend school than attend court. If a student continues to fail to attend school after a workshop agreement is signed, then [ more SATTERBERG, page 7 ]

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 essentially a monopoly. Efficiency and effectiveness are not determinate factors in the survivability of the “company.” But if it were a company, it would probably be a manufacturing company. The process takes approximately 12 years to complete and produces either a student that is ready for the next level of education (community college, university, etc.) or a student that is ready to join the workforce. Graduation rates are typically used to measure the success (or quality) of the process. The truth

is a high school diploma is not 100 percent necessary for either outcome. It is also true that given the number of college students in remedial classes, a high school diploma is not always a good measure of readiness for college. In either case, it is what the state superintendent (OSPI) uses for rating school districts, and we are well below the state average. In other words, the process being used is broken — or at least not working as well as it should. Your customers are not happy. The school board meeting on Nov.

12 made that extremely clear. The primary topic for that meeting was the grading system — a tool that is critically necessary for communicating the progress that the student is making along a very long journey. The problems with the latest grading system are too numerous to list here. The grading system used in the prior two years was no better. Your customers have been patient, but three years of a failed grading system has worn them out. I suspect that the visible problems with the “company” are symptomatic of a much larger problem. The short-term and long-term goals for the district are unclear. Your customers are well aware of the problems, but the actions [ more LETTERS, page 7 ]

Q&A with Mr. FW: District treats our children like guinea pigs Q: I was one of more than 100 parents who showed up to the Federal Way School Board meeting Tuesday night who was looking for answers regarding the standards based grading system. I came away with the opinion that the school board is not listening to its constituents. They are going to do what they want to do, and there’s nothing parents or students can do to change their minds. A: Mr. Federal Way feels your pain. Here’s the sentiment that Mr. Federal Way took away from Tuesday night’s school board meeting — the children of Federal Way Public Schools are being used as guinea pigs. The school district was in such a rush to implement this obviously-flawed standards based grading system to make a “name” for itself across the United States that it didn’t take into consideration the most important people within a school district — the students who work hard to get

In the school board races, the evening’s theme was even more apparent as frustration with the status quo resulted in Democrat Geoffery McAnalloy defeating longtime incumbent Republican Ed Barney, 53 percent to 47 percent. At the same time, Democrat Carol Gregory defeated Medgar Wells by almost the same percentage. Wells was an articulate first-timer who didn’t disclose a party affiliation. However, he was introduced around the community by Republican school board member Tony Moore. It’s hard to say if Moore’s legal troubles contributed to Wells defeat or not. But the board and superinten-

Fewer than 10 percent of the 1,200 petitions filed last school year ended up in court, where students and their parents faced additional court-based consequences.

good grades. It’s the job of Superintendent Rob Neu and the members of the Federal Way School Board to give the students of their district all the tools they need to succeed in life. This standards based grading system isn’t doing that. They are making things extremely difficult not only on the students of the district, but also the parents and guardians. Mr. Federal Way always tells the kids to try their best at everything they do. If you are going to clean your room, be the best room cleaner you can be. If you are filling the dishwasher, be the best dishwasher filler you can be. And, most importantly, if you are going to school, get the best grades you can get. Mr. Federal Way knows, for a fact, that Mr. Federal Way’s kids have been working as hard as they can this year, only to see their grades slipping to “barely passing.” It’s demoralizing for everyone involved, and it’s a shame.

According to research from an ever-growing group of parents, there are no other schools or school districts in the country that have applied the controversial Power Law equation to a grading system for high school classes. In other words, this edition of standards based grading has never been tested in a real-world environment. Mr. Federal Way is fully onboard with the 100-plus parents who attended Tuesday’s school board meeting. Turn off this edition of the standards based grading system until all the kinks are worked out. This needs to happen before the end of the 2013 first semester grading session, which concludes Jan. 29. Nobody, including a lot of the teachers who must record and hand out these grades, can offer an explanation on exactly how every grade is calculated. At that point, administrators and teachers within the Federal Way school district can work during the summer months, and maybe even the entire 2014-15 school year, getting on the same page in implementing the stan-

dent’s travel and salary increase, along with the grading system, certainly played a role in both races. The election and change in board members may also shift the boardsuperintendent relationship, along with district policy direction and parent-teacher participation. In the South King Fire and Rescue district, incumbent Bill Gates won with a comfortable margin over Jerry Galland. Galland, while sincere and earnest in his attempts to win public office, may have reached the point where the public reacts more to the messenger rather than the message. Even though the district denied most of Galland’s charges, there is a public perception, even among many people who voted for Gates, that the district may need to review some of its positions. A different candidate may have yielded a closer race. We will take a closer look at some of these races over the next few weeks. If you see any of the candidates, thank them for running.

Federal Way resident Bob Roegner, a former mayor of Auburn: filing community truancy board to work in conjunction with students who require court intervention. We know that truancy is a red flag that leads to dropping out of school, and increases the chance for risky behaviors, substance abuse and involvement in the criminal justice system. School districts, teachers and your prosecuting attorney are working hard to keep students from dropping out of school. It is in the best interest of the child and the community.

dards based system. It’s just not prudent to make the current high school kids the guinea pigs for an untested grading policy. They are the ones who are hurt by the school district attempting to make a name for itself. Mr. Federal Way agrees, wholeheartedly, with board member Danny Peterson, who said, “I don’t think it’s right. We should have looked through this, tested this, and figured out a lot of these fails before we ever implemented it in September.” Seems like that would have been the logical thing to do. Q: Mr. Federal Way, do you do any of your Christmas shopping on Black Friday? There are a lot of good deals out there. A: There is nothing that could appeal less to Mr. Federal Way than getting up at 4 a.m. the Friday after Thanksgiving to go shopping. Nothing. Mr. Federal Way honestly has no idea why anybody would even venture out of their house on that day. Is a 99-cent poinsettia, or saving $20 on a 50-inch television, worth dealing with hoards of an-

gry housewives with their coupon books and bad attitudes? But, Mr. Federal Way’s feelings toward Black Friday is obviously in the minority. It’s the biggest shopping day, by far, in the United States. Stores like Target, Best Buy, Macy’s and Walmart will even open at dinnertime on Thanksgiving Day. Mr. Federal Way actually takes back the earlier comment. There is nothing that could appeal less to Mr. Federal Way than eating a humongous turkey dinner, backed up by pumpkin pie, whipped cream and 10 beers, and then heading out to battle for a Furby at Target. So, as with every holiday season, Mr. Federal Way will procrastinate buying gifts until Christmas Eve, which is better known as the Black Friday for men. Happy shopping. Q: Mr. Federal Way, to raise awareness of men’s health issues, are you growing a mustache for “Movember?” A: None of your business.

at the high school level.” Almost all of those present at the Nov. 12 meeting raised their hand in agreement. Neu also mentioned that a survey is being distributed to teachers, parents and students regarding SBG. The school district hopes to have the results of that survey back by the time of the board’s work study session regarding SBG on Dec. 3. Board member Tony Moore gave perhaps the most vocal defense of SBG. Moore said the district has been working on improving it for a while, with a lot of the drive to change and improve it coming from higher education schools in the region. “We have been working on the grade problem for a while. This is not something new that we are just recently tackling,” Moore said. “It goes beyond just getting an A in a class because (students) worked hard. My concern is making sure that the children who graduate and walk across the stage, they’ve actually learned something. That when they go to college, they don’t spend the first two years of their college careers sitting in remedial classes, because they got ripped off by our schools because we just socially promoted them through, and you end up paying another $50,000 a year because they did not get in high school what we should be giving them.” Moore said the board is hearing the concerns of students, parents and community members loud and clear, and he hopes that with those groups’ help, the district can “get it straight.” “Criticism is wonderful, constructive criticism is even better,” he concluded. Board member Danny Peterson was the most conciliatory, saying the district

faltered and that it’s unfair to all those affected that “we are in November, and we don’t have a clear grading system that you understand.” “I don’t think it’s right,” Peterson said. “We should have looked through this, tested this, and figured out a lot of these fails before we ever implemented it in September,” Peterson continued. “But we are where we’re at now. This grading system should be clear and easy to understand for your student and for yourself as a parent. (It’s) obviously something that is not clear.” “It’s important to have this dialogue. Please don’t give up,” Peterson added.

Upcoming public forums The initial motivation for replacing the traditional grading system with SBG was to improve the district’s graduation rate, which currently hovers just above 70 percent. SBG went into effect in fall 2011, and sparked a public debate over its strengths and shortcomings. Teachers have had a difficult time explaining the grading system to parents and students who don’t understand it. According to the district, SBG allows for a more precise level of learning by requiring students to meet a number of “power standards.” The system also replaces letter grades with a 1-through-4 scale. The district is hosting forums at Federal Way middle schools for parents to learn more about the new grade book and how grades are calculated. Upcoming forums: • Kilo Middle School: 6 p.m. Nov. 20 • Lakota Middle School: 6 p.m. Nov. 21 • Sacajawea MS: 6 p.m. Nov. 25 • Educational Service Center, 33330 8th Ave. S.: 5 p.m. Dec. 3.

‘Mad as hell’ taxpayer and parents criticize school district By GREG ALLMAIN

Parents and community members were in vociferous attendance again during the Federal Way School Board’s

Nov. 12 meeting. Once again, the focus of those in attendance was mostly directed at the district’s standards based grading (SBG) system — although one “mad as hell” taxpayer let the board know what he thinks of their management of his money in recent months and years. “I’m a taxpayer in Federal Way, and I’m mad as hell

In addition to defending the grading system, the school district has defended all travels related to the initiative as necessary for gaining insight and making connections that benefit students.

Professional development program in FWPS From staff reports

Dr. Julia Aguirre, an associate math professor at the University of Washington-Tacoma, is beginning to work with Federal Way Public Schools (FWPS) on a “comprehensive professional development program that ultimately will impact the district’s most vulnerable students.” Aguirre’s work will focus on developing a culturally-responsive approach to teaching mathematics throughout the district, according to a news release. The district reports that Aguirre has extensive experience working with local school districts to strengthen their math education, especially for historically

underserved populations. Part of her work will include training instructional coaches, interventionists, and teacher leaders at each of the district’s K-12 schools. That work will be based on Aguirre’s book, “The Impact of Identity in K-8 Mathematics.” Superintendent Rob Neu said Aguirre will be a valuable asset as the district begins to focus on the aforementioned underserved populations in an attempt to improve outcomes across the whole spectrum of students.

November 15, 2013 [13] [ BOEING from page 1] it will bolster our state’s legacy as the aerospace capital of the world.” Inslee called the Legislature into special session late last week. For once, Olympia came to a bipartisan agreement quickly. Legislators agreed to: • Extend all commercial airplane tax incentives until 2040, and expand the current sales and use tax exemption on construction of buildings to manufacture “super efficient airplanes” to include all commercial airplanes and suppliers of wings and fuselages • Expand the state’s investment in education and workforce development to boost enrollment in aerospace fields at community and technical colleges, train workers for manufacturing of composite wings, and complete the Central Sound Aerospace Training Facility in Renton • Streamline permitting actions that will speed up development and expansion of facilities at large manufacturing sites around the state Inslee’s office said the deal reached in Olympia “includes strong contingency language to ensure that all of the 777X assembly and wing assembly remains in Washington.” If Boeing reneges on this part of the deal, the company will lose a “preferential B&O tax rate for the 777X,” if any of the work is moved to Boeing facilities out of state. King County Executive Dow Constantine said this deal would be beneficial for King County.

“Many of the people who will work on the plane live here, and many of the 478 aerospace firms in King County will be part of the 777X supply chain,” he said. Local Machinists Union president Tom Wroblewski had made a dramatic showing of ripping up the proposed deal last week, but his tone seemed to change as the union’s vote neared. “This is an opportunity we will never see again to secure thousands of goodpaying jobs in the State of Washington,” Wroblewski posted at “You need to educate yourself, evaluate what’s before you, and decide what is right for you, your family and your community. This is a very personal decision, laced with emotions and repercussions. But at the end of the day, this is about 30 years of jobs in Puget Sound for us, our children and our grandchildren.” In the Seattle Times, Boeing Commercial Aircraft chief executive Ray Conner said that if the Machinists don’t comply with the new deal, Boeing would “take the work of building its new 777X jet to another state.” “It’s not a bluff,” Conner said in the Times report. Wroblewski’s assurances seem to have had little effect on the machinists. The union as a whole voted to reject the deal on Nov. 13 after a voting process that took the entire day. Wroblewski issued a short statement on the union’s website following the vote: “Today, the democratic process worked and our members made the decision to not accept the company’s

proposal. It is my belief that we represent the best aerospace workforce in the world and hope that as a result of this vote, Boeing will not discard our skills when looking to place the 777X. We preserved something sacred by rejecting the Boeing proposal. We’ve held on to our pensions and that’s big. At a time when financial planners are talking about a ‘retirement crisis’ in America, we have preserved a tool that will help our members retire with more comfort and dignity.”

Typhoon aftermath: World Vision sends relief From staff reports

Typhoon Haiyan, considered one of the strongest tropical storms ever, made landfall in the Philippines early Nov. 8 and caused catastrophic damage. Wind gusts were reported as high as 190 mph. Thousands are feared dead. Federal Way based World Vision is mobilizing a response to help nearly 400,000 people. According to, the first relief flight loaded with critical emergency supplies arrived in Manila on Monday, including 5,000 blankets and 3,000

tarpaulins (plastic sheets) that will be used to help survivors build temporary shelters. The Christian humanitarian organization is raising funds to provide emergency assistance to more than 1 million people. The typhoon has affected nearly 9.8 million people and displaced an estimated 660,000 people, according to the United Nations. Local officials estimate that some 10,000 people were killed in one city alone, and the overall number is expected to increase as aid workers reach more affected communities, the UN reports. World Vision reports that communication outages are creating difficulties in assessing the damage. To learn more or make a donation, visit

Because those of us who continuously work hard and do well should receive the better grade. At the last board meeting, it was stated there’s no evidence that students will be turned down for scholarships or admissions into college. But I’m already looking at colleges, and

sions counselors, one of the first things they ask is what my GPA is. It’s not fair that because of your system I cannot show them grades that reflect who I am.” College was also on the mind of FWHS senior Kayla Butzeron. “The standards based grading system has gone from one extreme to the other,” Butzeron said. “The grading system does not reflect properly the whole image of students in this district. If they get a 1 or 2 at the end of the semester, then their grade drops. The way the school board has been using us to test their theories for a new and better education has

The school board…to me it seems like, that you don’t have what is in the best interest (of the students). Because many universities, especially the ones I’m looking at, who offer the best educational programs in the country, know of our grading system and how it hasn’t been working as well as others in the country.” FWHS senior Katelyn Coburn used more direct language, saying she’s happy she’s only a few months away from being out of the school district entirely. “I’m going to put this as nicely as I can, (the grading system) is screwing us all over,” she said. “There really isn’t any other way to put it. I had a 4.0 my entire high school career. And most of my school career as well. I’ve always tried my hardest in all my classes, and I’ve never seen an F on the online grading system or any of my progress reports.” Coburn said this was the first year she ever saw an F in her grades. “But this year, come the end of the first grading period, I had an F…Any other grading we’ve had, I would have been passing,” she said. “I’m glad to be getting out of this mess of a grading system. I probably wouldn’t stay in the district if I weren’t a senior.”

Eagles fly by E-W, Skyline next Wrap up:

Runners finish solid at state XC

McClatcher, Curran score two TDs each during 37-20 win; Skyline beats up TJ By Rich Myhre Everett Herald

Edmonds-Woodway battled Federal Way on even terms for much of the game, but when it came to big plays the visiting Eagles were simply too much. Chico McClatcher, a 5-foot-9, 180-pound junior speedster, had an 84-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and a long punt return to set up another touchdown, and quarterback Keenan Curran had TD runs of 59 and 38 yards to lead Federal Way to a 37-20 victory over the Warriors in a quad-district football playoff game Nov. 8 at Edmonds District Stadium. Against Federal Way, “we made a lot of mistakes,” Warriors coach John Gradwohl said. “We weren’t going to kick the ball to 5 (McClatcher) and then we kicked the ball to 5. We weren’t going to punt the ball to 5 and we punted the ball to 5. That was 14 points, and when you lose by 17 and you give them 14, that’s (tough). “But (the Eagles) are a heck of a team,” he said. “They have a lot of speed, and we don’t have anybody fast enough to catch them.” The win sets up a firstround game between Federal Way (8-2) and Skyline (9-1) tonight. The game will [ more playoffs page 19 ]

Preview: Federal Way @ Skyline What: Federal Way (8-2) vs. Skyline (9-1) When: 7 p.m., tonight (Nov. 15) Where: Skyline High School What’s at stake: A berth into the quarterfinals (Final 8) of the Class 4A State Football Playoffs. The winner of the Federal Way/Skyline game will host the winner of a game between Skyview and Richland on either Nov. 22 or 23. Why Skyline will win: No offense to the Thomas Jefferson Raiders, but the Spartans were never tested in their opening round playoff game last Friday. Skyline jumped out to a 43-0 lead in the first half and cruised on their home field. Things shouldn’t be so

easy Friday night against the talented Eagles, who feature a pair of Division I recruits in quarterback/defensive back Keenan Curran and running back Chico McClatcher. The Skyline program definitely has way more “tradition” than their counterparts from Federal Way. Since the 2000 season, Skyline has won a grand total of seven state championships and finished second two more times. In comparison, the Eagles haven’t advanced into the semifinals of the 16-team state tournament since 1976. The program has also never won a state title. The Spartans’ only loss came [ more preview page 19 ]

The cross country season came to an end Saturday at the state cross country championships in the Tri-Cities. Eight Federal Way school district runners made the journey across the mountains to compete at the Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco. On the boys’ side, Federal Way senior Mitch Stewart led the way for the district with a 42nd-place performance Saturday. Stewart, who won the last two individual tennis championships, finished the 5,000-meter course in 16:12.64. Stewart, who is headed to the University of Washington in the fall to play tennis, chose to run cross country this year instead of defending his 4A singles title. Beamer junior Austin Jex ended up in 50th place Saturday in 16:18.32 and teammate Blake Hansen followed in 74th in 16:30.44. Federal Way senior Mussie Simon finished in 79th in 16:35.99.

Recruiting: Huff inks with Hawaii Three district baseball players sign with Seattle and tennis champ Stewart heading to UW By CASEY OLSON

Megan Huff is heading to paradise in the fall — literally. The Todd Beamer High School senior will play volleyball next year at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. The 6-foot-2 Huff officially inked her national letter of intent Wednesday in

a ceremony at Beamer. “I’m pretty excited,” Huff said of the full-ride scholarship. “It’s been a long process. I’ve really taken a lot of time researching and I know this is the right fit for me.” Huff was a four-year starter for the Todd Beamer Titans. During her senior season, Huff led the Titans in kills with 212 and aces with 54. She was a first-team, All-South Puget Sound League South Division selection for head coach Pat Taitano, who also went to the University of Hawaii. Huff also plays club volleyball for the powerful PSVBA 17-under National Team. Huff helped the PSVBA squad win the prestigious gold medal

in the Patriot Division at the 2013 Girls Junior National Championships in Dallas last summer. The University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine volleyball team is currently ranked 12th in the nation. Hawaii is 18-4 on the season and currently sit in third place in the Big West Conference, one of the best volleyball league’s in the nation. Huff visited the Honolulu campus last month and came away impressed by the coaches and facilities at Hawaii. Since 1997, the Rainbow Wahine have led the nation in home game attendance, with a cumulative average of more than 6,800 fans per match. [ more recruiting page 18 ]

McDonald scored in the 10th minute on a pass from Delany Lindhal and Mo Speith made four saves in goal for the Titans. The Eagles (12-4-2) finished second in the SPSL South, qualified for the winner-to-state game with a victory over South Kitsap Thursday in the opening round of the district tournament.

[18] November 15, 2013 [ recruiting from page 16] The program is the secondlargest source of financial income for the University of Hawaii athletic department, second only to football. The team has won four national championships. The Rainbow Wahine won at least a share of the regular-season conference title from 2001 through 2011. In addition, the program has made 31 NCAA postseason appearances out of the last 32 years, only missing the 1992 NCAA tournament. The program has produced Olympians, All-Americans and five individuals named National Player of the Year since 1983. Hawaii is coached by Dave Shoji, who has been head coach since 1975. Shoji is the winningest Division I women’s volleyball coach and a member of the Volleyball Hall of Fame. “The coaches are known for developing professional volleyball players,” Huff said. “And my goal is to be a pro volleyball player.” Huff also took official visits to the University of California Irvine, University of San Francisco, New Mexico and the University of Oregon. She also took numerous “unofficial” visits to other schools. Her plan is to get a medical degree and work for the organization Doctors Without Borders, which is an international humanitarian organization that provides assistance in more than 60 countries to people whose survival is “threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters.” Huff will also be one of the top basketball players in the state this season. As a junior, she helped the Titans win the program’s first-ever South Puget Sound League South Division championship with a 15-1 record. Huff led Beamer in scoring and rebounding and was a first-team, All-SPSL South selection by the league’s coaches. She averaged 14.3 points a game and had a high game of 30 during a win over Emerald Ridge early in the season. But Huff ’s best game might have come in the SPSL Championship Game against top-ranked Mount Rainier when she scored 28 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Huff and the rest of the Titans will be a legitimate candidate to bring home Beamer’s first-ever basketball state championship. Beamer will return its entire starting lineup from a season ago. It’s still up in the air whether Huff will play basketball at Hawaii. “Every other school wanted me to also play basketball,” she said. “I might do that at Hawaii, but it’s just so competitive there in volleyball, that I want to do everything I can to get better.”

Other student-athletes to sign letters of intent: • Scott Sunitsch, Beamer — The left-handed pitcher signed his national letter of intent to play baseball at Washington State University. Sunitsch will join former Beamer teammate Matt Bower and Federal Way grad Nick Tanielu on the Cougars’ roster. “Scott pitches with an attitude and has an edge about him that we love,” said WSU pitching coach Gregg Swenson said. “He will bring a very competitive mental-

ity to our program and shows great desire to be the best. He has bought into our program from day one.” As a junior, Sunitsch had a strong all-around season for the Titans. At the plate, he hit .362 with 15 RBIs, 12 runs, three doubles and two home runs. On the mound, Sunitsch was 2-3 in seven starts with a 4.24 ERA. He struck out 42 in 34 2/3 innings pitched. He was an All-SPSL South second-team selection as a pitcher last year. The Cougars finished 23-32 last season and were 9-21 in the Pac12 Conference. • Janson Junk, Decatur — The right-handed pitcher will continue his baseball career at Seattle University in the fall. Junk officially inked with the Redhawks Wednesday, along with his Decatur teammate Chris Carns. As a junior, Junk finished 4-3 for the state-bound Gators with an impressive 2.77 earned-run average. Two of his three losses came to state-champion Auburn Mountainview. The hard-throwing right-hander tossed three complete games in 53 innings of work. He was a second-team, All-SPSL 3A selection and struck out 47. Junk also hit .308 with six RBIs and six runs at the plate. • Chris Carns, Decatur — The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder also signed with Seattle University on Wednesday. The Redhawks finished last season 21-33 in just their fourth season after returning to Division I baseball. As a junior, Carns turned into the Gators’ ace during a season that saw Decatur win its first state

Carns finished 7-3 with a 3.00 earned-run average and threw four complete games.

Carns, a right-hander, also struck out 73 hitters in 58 1/3 innings and allowed only 47 hits all season. He also hit .262 with 22 RBIs, 20 runs and two home runs at the plate. • T.J.

He also had nine stolen bases. • Mitch Stewart, Federal Way — The two-time state singles ten-

nis champion inked with the powerful University of Washington tennis team Wednesday. Stewart was joined in the Huskies’ recruiting class by California native Jake Douglas. “I’m ecstatic about signing Mitch and Jake,” said UW head coach Matt Anger. “With the way these two work and compete, the sky is the limit for us during their careers here at Washington.” Stewart is currently ranked third in the United States by the U.S. Tennis Association and is fifth according to He was the 16-and-under champion at the National Clay Court Championships and finished third at the National Hard Court Championships in 2012.

But Federal Way got a third-quarter field goal, and then wrapped two fourthquarter touchdowns around an Edmonds-Woodway TD, the Warriors’ only points in the second half. “I thought my kids’ effort was awesome,” Gradwohl said. “They never gave up and I really appreciate that. I think (Federal Way) is a really good team. It’s not that we should’ve beat them, but I think we could’ve played a better football game. A smarter football game.”

kickoff at 7 p.m. at Skyline High School with a berth into the Class 4A State quarterfinals. The game started well for the Warriors, who struck first with a 15-play, 72-yard drive after the opening kickoff. EdmondsWoodway converted three third-down plays on the march, and senior running back Junior Opoku-Mensah gained the final 5 yards around left end. Placekicker Ebrima Fatty added the extra point. But Federal Way knotted the score moments later on a dazzling 84-yard kickoff return by McClatcher.

November 15, 2013 [19] [ briefs from page 17 ] [ preview from page 16 ] Obviously, the Eagles will be lean-

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, 325-115. The Skyline offense is led by quarterback Kilton Anderson, who leads the Spartans in rushing and passing. Anderson has 1,800 yards passing and 14 touchdowns, including four during the win over TJ last week, and over 500 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. “Their quarterback is really good,” said Meagher. “He delivers the ball well and reminds me of the (Brandon) Illies kid from Puyallup.” But the Spartans are a little different than in years’ past. This year’s edition is 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 eye-popping 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. “They have been kind of undersold on the defensive side,” Meagher said. “They play pretty good defense.” Why Federal Way will win: The Eagles played their most complete game of the season during their playoff-opening win over EdmondsWoodway last week. During the Eagles’ two losses during the SPSL South season to Graham-Kapowsin and Curtis, the team made several big-time mistakes in all three phases of the game — offense, defense and special teams. “It was night and day (against Edmonds-Woodway) from the games we lost,” Meagher said. “We stayed patient and stayed with the things that make us a good team.”

ing heavily on Keenan Curran and Chico McClatcher, who might be the most dynamic duo in the state this season. Both are approaching 2,000 of total offense apiece and both have rushed for over 1,100 yards in 10 games. McClatcher, a junior, has rushed for 1,203 yards and has scored a grand total of 27 touchdowns this season. He also has 622 yards receiving and also has touchdowns on punt, kickoff and interception returns and also threw a touchdown pass. McClatcher already has offers from college programs like Washington, Washington State, Utah, UCLA, Boise State and Arizona State. Curran, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete, has rushed for 1,163 yards and 12 touchdowns from the quarterback position and also has 646 yards passing with six TDs. On the defensive side of the ball, Curran led the SPSL with five interceptions. Curran already has scholarship offers from Air Force, Army, Idaho, San Jose State, Wyoming and Yale. The Eagles will obviously need to score points to beat the powerhouse Spartans. In their eight wins, Federal Way has averaged 47 points a game. But, in their two losses to GrahamKapowsin and Curtis, the Eagles have scored only 14 points a game. The Eagles’ defense was helped last week against Edmonds-Woodway by the return of talented linebacker Jared Pulu, who hadn’t started a game since Federal Way’s season opener. “It’s huge to have him back,” Meagher said. “It gave us a big emotional lift.” Federal Way’s 6-foot-3, 295-pound Jay-Tee Tiuli will also need to get pressure on Anderson, as well as clog up the middle of the line. Tiuli finished the SPSL regular season with four sacks.

League championship game. The Trojans beat the Auburn Panthers in the title game, 26-6, Nov. 9 at French Field in Kent. The win completed Federal Way’s perfect 9-0 season. The Trojans got touchdowns from Nikoh Rivers, Isaac Syph and Keith Rogers. Federal Way’s defense allowed only 24 points all season. The team included Gabriel Branch, Tejaun Carlyle, Tahvahn Davis, Evan Ellis, Jamarius Gilliam, Gabriel Gomez, Cruz Gonzalez, Erik Harris, Isaiah Jennings, Justin July, Lorenzo July, Christopher Landen, Jordan Maclean, Jorge Martinez, Isaiah Mayle, Terrell Milam, Kaiden Pitts, Nikoh Rivers, Keith Rogers, Isaac Syph, Ezekiel Taliauli, Leti Taputoa and Deon Vann. The team is coached Keith Rogers, Terrence Rivers and Hector Gomez. Federal Way Sports Authority, the parent organization of the Federal Way Trojans, is in its first year of existence. The program started the season with 88 total participants, on four teams from first- to eighth-grade. For more information, visit or call (253) 220-5085. • Federal Way grad is grad Isiah Umipig finished with 22 points to lead the Seattle University Redhawks during an 88-78 loss to the University of Washington in their season-opener Sunday at UW. Umipig is a 6-foot guard who is playing his junior season after transferring from Cal-State Fullerton. Umipig had to sit out the 2012-13 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but practiced with the team.
