It’s Backus as Auburn’s next mayor Mayor-elect Nancy Backus receives a congratulatory hug from City Councilmember Wayne Osborne. RACHEL CIAMPI, Auburn Reporter


Auburn gets itself a new mayor come Jan. 1. And for the first time in the City’s 120-year history, the mayor’s going to be a she. Mayor-elect Nancy Backus

said John Partridge called her at about 9:30 a.m. Nov. 21 to concede the close contest. “He told me he had talked with King County Elections and realized that there were not going to be any changes to the results, so he called to congratulate me. John was very

gracious, and I thanked him for his work on the Council, and that I hoped he continued in the community and maybe even considered public service again,” Backus said. As of Monday, the combined results of King and Pierce counties gave Backus 6,713 votes to

City pitches war memorial for Les Gove Park

The proposal to erect a joint Vietnamese-American war memorial has been controversial until now because of where its supporters want to put it – in Veterans Memorial Park. The American-Vietnamese War Memorial Alliance and its supporters say such a joint memorial would help heal wounds still festering from the war in Vietnam. But many veterans have very publicly stated they want nothing at all to do with a memorial in the park commemorating Vietnamese veterans and flying a foreign flag where it would compete with the existing memorial to the armed forces of the United States.

Benjamin Gran of Auburn pleaded guilty in September to receiving and possessing child pornography based an investigation that began four years ago in the Netherlands. His sentencing is in January. Yet he’s on paid administrative leave from his job as an information technology specialist at Green River Community College. The college explained its position Nov. 21. “The college is aware of the court proceedings and is taking action regarding the situation,” said GRCC Spokeswoman Vickie Sheehan. “We’ve taken the necessary steps to protect the students and the College during the personnel matter. “Because this is a personnel matter, we cannot provide more detail at this time,” Sheehan added.

her, telling her that it was about time she made it official, as “everybody else” already had. “I’m just so excited,” Backus said. “I know it’s not going to be easy. I’m not so naîve that I think everything is going to be perfect. But I know how to surround myself with great people. I love this city, Auburn’s been wonderful to me.” Backus said her mother called in tears to congratulate her this morning. “She said, ‘Oh, Nanny’ – she calls me Nanny – ‘I’m so proud of you. Now I can call the relatives,’” Backus said with a laugh. Partridge could not be reached for comment.

Tight council race In addition to the mayoral race, the only remaining race for City Council still close as of Monday was that between incumbent Rich Wagner and challenger Michelle Binetti where the candidates were separated by a mere 27 votes. As of Monday evening, Wagner had 6,120 votes, 50.11 percent of the combined tally from the counties to Binetti’s 6,093 votes, 49.89 percent. Although not yet official, Yolanda Trout and Claude DaCorsi have won their contests.

Algona looks into the design of a new community center The Washington State Department of Commerce has granted the City of Algona $125,000 to be used in the initial phase of designing a new community center. Mayor David Hill has appointed a scoping committee composed of two residents, two planning officials, two councilmembers, one business owner, two City Hall representatives and one student. Algona residents will be asked to provide input into the design from a soon-to-be-released survey.

Green River breaks ground on new Student Life Center BY ROSS COYLE

Members of Green River Community College Student Life broke ground at the campus site for the new Student Life Center Nov. 21. The new building will replace the Lindbloom Student Center, which has outgrown its capacity since it was built in 1971. The Lindbloom Center accommodates a cafeteria, a bookstore and recreation rooms along with student services such as counsel-

ing, government and financial aid, which puts quite a strain on the existing structure. Some offices need room to grow but haven’t been able to because of crowding in the building, according to school officials. “If everybody is in the office where student leaders work, you can’t move around,” said Jaquie Chamberlain, a student who volunteers in student government. “Having the extra space and having it all in one area will be good.” The 65,000-square-foot building is to feature a number of new areas, including those being moved from the Lindbloom Center. In addition to the bookstore, stage and dining area, the new building will have a computer bar, a fireside lounge, a

larger fitness center and a multicultural center. “We live in half a building now, and we have to figure out how to have a large band on campus and counsel students,” said Dani Cheng, dean of campus life. Cheng said that Sam Ball, the school’s director of capital projects, is the main person behind the center’s start. Ball helped coordinate architects for project designs, engaged student focus groups for input on the center’s features and made sure that the project’s phases were progressing on schedule. The most important part of the planning? Making sure the students were involved. “We learned years and years ago to really get the people involved,”

Ball said. To facilitate this, Ball commissioned a number of student representatives on campus to act as liaisons in planning meetings with staff and the architects. Now that the school has adopted the plans, it plans to open bidding from contractors on Dec. 12. While Ball said there isn’t a clear figure, he estimates the center should cost about $31 million to complete by the end of 2014. Students funded the project by taxing themselves through a series of fees that began at $20 in 2007 and have increased to $45 over the past four years. The students elected to tax themselves to raise 45 percent of the funds and the college filled in the other 55 percent.

Renton man charged in Muckleshoot Casino shooting King County prosecutors on Nov. 20 charged a 63-year-old Renton man with two counts of first-degree assault for allegedly shooting and seriously wounding two men outside the Muckleshoot Casino on Nov. 16. Prosecutors filed the charges against Antonio F. Castro at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. The court set bail at $500,000. The two victims, Brian Beasley and Daniel Mora, are in serious

condition at an area hospital. According to the Determination for Certification of Probable Cause filed by Auburn Police – an account largely based on what Castro told police – Castro had been driving with his wife through the parking garage of the casino shortly before 8:45 p.m. when Beasley and Mora, who had been walking near his car, confronted him. According to the police account, Mora walked over to the driver’s door and began swearing at Castro. When Castro reached under his seat to remove his

Man struck, killed by train identified The man who was struck and killed by a Sounder train Nov. 15 has been identified as Andrew B. Jones, 27, of Auburn, according to the King County Medical Examiners Office.

At about 4:50 p.m. Nov. 15, police found the man’s body near the tracks in the 4400 block of B Street Northwest. The Examiners Office said the cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries. According to police, the train was traveling at 78 miles per hour. Jones was traveling west to east to meet his fiancee. Police have determined Jones’ death was an accident.

I have always been fascinated by words and usage. I can often tell what a speaker or writer doesn’t want me to know by the duckand-dodge words and usage. Journalism is, in theory, centered on clear writing. There is an old adage that journalists should write for eighth-grade readers. The idea is to dumb down the copy because people can’t understand the journalist’s big words. I think that adage is dumb. Most folks I know can read copy very well, they just don’t want to be bored or preached to by opinions masquerading as news. Of course, there are many who love opinion journalism as long as it feeds them their opinion. Suppression of the other guy’s dopey ideas is alive and growing. What prompted this column was a news article I read about layoffs at a metro newspaper in another state. The writer quoted an executive who said the editorial reductions – that means layoffs – would come from, “non-reader-facing functions.” Non-reader-facing functions – roll that one through your brain a few times. Careful, it may kill memory cells. The antidote is to down a tall glass of buttermilk. Apparently that is how we be should be talking to eighth-graders. Johnny, please stop acting like a non-reading-pinheaded-little-puke and begin your non-math-very-boring functions. If there are non-reader-facing functions are there not-non-reader-facing functions? Am I a not-non or a non? Do I want to be a not-non or a non? If you’re getting laid off, are you a not-non or a non? Maybe this is all some sort of dirty talk that I am too old to understand.

“The intent was never to stick a memorial or a monument anywhere. The fact that it would be placed on public property, on park property, is of significance. I have a vision of having a monument park within Les Gove Community Campus. I would like to see a monument park there, a larger area that would allow for future monuments. Backus added that if in the future everybody who came forward with a like-size proposal for a monument in Memorial Park were to be granted their desires, there would be no gathering space left, no more opportunity to bring in the Vietnam traveling wall for Veterans Day celebrations. “I don’t see in my mind that a placement in Les Gove Park would be of any less significance than anywhere else in one of our public parks,” Backus said.

They remember what it was like to live without it. After World War II, Poland became part of the Warsaw Pact, and its government was dominated by the Communist Party in Moscow, which dictated production and controlled the markets. If you wanted a home or apartment, bureaucrats decided what it would look like and where it would be built. While government and party leaders had plenty to eat, nice homes, new cars and warm clothing, the rest of the people barely scraped by. A visit today to the Soli-

darity Museum in Gdansk is a stark reminder of the food, clothing and housing shortages that ravaged Poland and its people. One powerful display is simply a section of empty grocery store shelves. The numbing repression and shortages led to the Solidarity movement, which began in Gdansk, home to one of the world’s largest shipyards. Many remember a short, wiry shipyard electrician named Lech Walesa, who scaled the shipyard fence and issued 21 demands to Polish Communists for better pay, better working

The Amsterdam Police Department, the Dutch National Police and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security began “Operation Rescue” in 2009, in part to dismantle the online forum for its role in the transmission and dissemination of child pornography throughout the world.

David Schmidt, a Vietnam war veteran who is 100 percent disabled with PTSD, described his feelings about the memorial to a City commitee. “I can’t put into words how much this memorial means to me personally,” Schmidt said. “For me Vietnam is an everyday thing. I go to bed thinking about it, I wake up thinking about it. … And not just for me but for a lot of the Vietnamese, that monument is going to mean a lot. For me, I’ll have a place to go.

Because when I came home from Vietnam, there were no bands or parades or anything, and not for any of the vets. We just kind of slid back into town quietly and left again.” And he objected at first to the proposed change in location. “… Beggars can’t be choosy, stick us over at Les Gove Park. But really as a Vietnam vet, why can’t I go to Memorial Park? Is my struggle, their struggle, any less? Les Gove Park is,” Schmidt continued, gesturing to show the distance, “and Memorial Park is there. There’s always people over at Memorial Park. … Sticking us over at Les Gove Park, it’s like it diminishes what we went through, what we’re going through today.” Committee Chair Nancy Backus said that placement at Les Gove Park was intended as a compromise between those adamantly against having any type of a memorial and those adamantly for having a memorial.

According to court papers, the network’s principal figure, Robert Mikelson, not only sexually assaulted at least 86 children he recorded many of the assaults on video, which he considered his “artwork.” Mikelson was later convicted of 67 child abuse charges. In April 2012 a judge in the Netherlands sentenced him to 19 years in prison. According to court papers, Gran and Mikelson have been friends since 2004. Like Mikelson, charging papers say, Gran supported the movement to legitimize the sexual abuse of children. abundance.

Of course my salary was less than one-third of the current minimum wage, but way more than the 25 cents an hour I earned working part-time in a drug store when I was 12. I suppose those folks losing jobs can move to a “right-to-work” state where more jobs are being created, the cost of living is far less and likely be better off. – Gary T. McGavran

Guild brings Shakespeare to Auburn for a special performance Reporter staff

The Bard pays Auburn a special visit next week. With the help of a grant from The Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s education department, the Auburn Actors’ Guild brings Shakespeare to Auburn High School for a special appearance. As part of the OSF’s 2013 School Visit Program, festival actors Benjamin Pelteson and Edwardo Placer perform in the Auburn Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4 as a scholarship fundraiser for the Auburn Actors’ Guild. This is the first year the club will award the scholarship to a



student specifically planning to pursue a career in theatre. “In the past the evening programs have been fun and should provide a great evening’s entertainment,” said Warren Kerr, the school’s drama teacher and director of Auburn Actors’ Guild productions. Festival actors also will provide

programs for Auburn High students on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 4 and 5. Pelteson and Placer will perform an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, and a combination program featuring a series of scenes, poems, songs, sketches from Shakespeare and other classical and contemporary literature pieces. The visiting actors work extremely well together, said Jay Shepherd, outreach programs coordinator for The Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Ore. “Edwardo is a very exuberant man, very energetic, very high energy, and Ben likes to play more of the laconic, sort of morose

character,” Shepherd said. “They really have a lot of fun with that in their performance and on tour in general … playing off each other in this half-full, half-empty sort of personas.” Pelteson portrayed Edgar in “King Lear” and Second Lord in “Cymbeline” in one season at OSF. He has performed in New York and other regional theaters. He has made several film and TV appearances. In addition to his work at OSF, Placer has performed roles in OffBroadway and regional theater. Now in its 43rd year, the OSF School Visit Program is one of the largest theatre outreach programs in the country. In the fall of 2012,

Local woman shares a chapter of her life as ‘An MP in Cold War Berlin’

Soroptimist International of Auburn is collaborating with the Wells Fargo Women’s Team Member Network and other Puget Sound Area Soroptimist clubs to collect new and gently used coats and jackets for local homeless women and girls. All donated coats will be donated to the Jubilee Women’s Center and the Salvation Army for distribution to local people in need. If you would like to donate a new or gently used coat to assist in this effort,

please email and a Soroptimist will make arrangements to collect your donations. Members also are taking on the challenge of helping to feed homeless teens in Auburn through a partnership with Auburn Youth Resources and Seattlebased Teen Feed. Each month the group sponsors a dinner and takes care of everything from gathering donations of money and food, to preparing and serving the meal and cleaning up.

Duty away from home served her well. The experience and skills have led to a career as a security officer for Walsh, 44. “I joined the U.S. Army straight out of high school looking for an affordable education, but also for travel and adventure,” she wrote. “I would be a part of world history unfolding as I stood on top of the Berlin wall at the Brandenburg Gate the night the wall came down, and again nearly a year later when Berlin celebrated their nation’s reunification.” Walsh’s time in Berlin would shape her future. She met and married her husband, Ed, near a medieval castle by a lake in Denmark. They soon had a son, Ken. The family explored Europe, following in the footsteps of kings, conquerors and tyrants. The book’s reviews have been good. “I hope readers gain a feeling of adventure (from the book),” Walsh said.

“East of The Elbe, An MP in Cold War Berlin”: avail-

able in paperback and Kindle through

Walsh one day would like to return to Germany, a place that has left a lasting impression on her. “There’s this overwhelming feeling of history,” Walsh said. “It fills you with such a sense of awe. It’s indescribable, the feeling it gives you. “I’ve always been fascinating by history, so to be in those places and see those things … is just amazing.”

New Hope continues to give despite burglary By SHAWN SKAGER

The value of the items taken during a burglary at the New Hope Lutheran Church in Pacific wasn’t much. According to Pastor Mark Gause, thieves broke in sometime during the early morning hours of Nov. 14, snagging about $150 in donations earmarked for the church’s charitable efforts, a camera and a video camera. Although every asset is precious to the church – which hosts a weekly food bank on Tuesdays and is the gathering place for community events such as AA meetings and Boy Scout gatherings – the burglars caused more harm by breaking the front door and costing Gause precious time he could have spent on charitable efforts. “They didn’t have to bust our door,” Gause said. “The biggest thing is frustration and the foolishness. If you want to break in and do something, I guess I can understand that. But at this time of the year, we’re so busy. To have to do the processing of finding what’s missing, finding how do we recover it and how do we reorganize this. Plus the emotional package that goes with that. With all we do, really? But churches are easy targets, there is usually something laying around.” Gause discovered the break-in after arriving to open up the church between 7:30 and 8 a.m. “I should have discovered it sooner,” Gause said. “My first clue should have been

“We need canned food staples, things like proteins, vegetables, soup, peanut butter,” he said. “Those things are pretty universal. And the first best way to help is always cash because we can leverage that. Right now, our Thanksgiving is OK. We’ve got Christmas coming up and even harder is all those weeks in February and January, where all the energy often wears down for people.” For those interested in donating to the church, call Gause at 253-335-4032 or stop by the church at 603 3rd Ave. S., Pacific.

that the door was broke. You know how you go on autopilot? I put the key in and got ready to start my day, and when I opened the door, I saw the back door was open. Then it all registered.” Gause called the police department and then began to assess the damage. “Drawers were open, papers strewn about, stuff turned upside down,” he said. “We just had a fundraiser and we had $150 that I hadn’t had a chance to deposit yet. There were a couple of small electronic things that I haven’t found where they usually are, a camera and a flip video camera.” Despite the loss, he said the break-in could have been worse. “They had scouted through every place and had piled things up. To me it looked like they were going to go back and pick them up,” Gause said. “There was a laptop in the backroom they had unplugged and set out. They opened up all the doors and near as I can tell they went through every place. So we’re pretty sure somebody had interrupted them.” Gause said the break-in didn’t hamper the church’s annual Thanksgiving basket handout, which provided a holiday dinner for 200 needy residents this past week. The real impact comes later, he said. “Losing $150 dollars, that’s money that was going to get food, but it won’t stop things,” Gause said, adding that the church is always looking for food and cash donations to help out.

Cassano pulls down all-league honors Trojans, Ravens

could join Lions in 3A next season


Coming into his final season of playing football at Auburn Mountainview senior Joey Cassano had a little attitude. “I basically came in with the mindset that no one could guard me, that no one could stop me from doing what I wanted on the field,” Cassano said. Big words from a 5-foot, 10inch, 185-pound wide receiver in just his third season at the position. To Cassano, however, they were more than just words. Through 10 games this year with the 3-7 Lions, Cassano walked the walk by piling up 80 receptions for 1,274 yards and 15 touchdowns. His performance earned him a All-South Puget Sound League 3A first-team offense selection. Cassano first began playing football in the seventh grade at Rainier Middle School. “I started as a quarterback and played there up until I was a freshman,” he said. “My sophomore year the coaches let me switch to wide receiver, which is what I’ve always wanted to play. I didn’t really think I was going to go anywhere playing quarterback. I wasn’t really tall enough to be a good quarterback.” Graced with an abundance of athletic ability – he also plays second base for the reigning 3A state champion Lions baseball squad – Cassano said the learn-


Joey Cassano slips by a Bonney Lake defender. Cassano was honored with an offensive first-team All-SPSL 3A selection this season. Courtesy, Tracy Arnold ing curve switching to wideout wasn’t too difficult. “I had already learned how to read the defense,” he said. “The route running was different and learning the footwork. But I put in the offseason work and wanted to prove everybody who said I couldn’t play wide receiver wrong.” Cassano said he started the season under first-year coach Jared Gervais buried in the depth chart, behind standouts Devin Bryant, Ray Hardaway,

Skyler White, Kekoa Nahaku and JJ Lacey. It wasn’t long before he made his presence felt, however. “I caught a touchdown in the third game,” he said. Cassano said progress at his new position was aided by Gervais’ spread offense and the overall attitude of the team, which went 6-4 and earned the program’s first ever postseason berth in 2011.

The Washington State Interscholastic Activities Association’s reclassification numbers for 2014-2016 – released last week – will likely mean a drop to 3A for Auburn and Auburn Riverside high schools starting in the fall of 2014. The two schools would join Auburn Mountainview, which competes in Class 3A. “We’re preparing to be a 3A district,” Auburn School District Athletic Director Rob Swaim said. “Our goal is to be together, that’s the big piece. We want to have all the schools together and grow those district rivalries.” The preliminary numbers show Auburn and Auburn Riverside’s enrollment at 1,080 and 1,200, respectively. Both schools are members of the South Puget Sound League North 4A. Auburn Mountainview (1,158) meanwhile competes in the SPSL 3A. The cutoff enrollment number for each of the state’s six classifications won’t be officially determined until the Jan. 27-28 WIAA executive board meeting. Every two years the WIAA reclassifies the state’s schools, with 66 schools allotted each for the 4A, 3A, 2A and 1A classes, with 63 schools apiece slated the 2B and 1B, this go around. Once classified, schools can choose to opt up to a higher class, which [ more 3A page 12 ]

“It was awesome, one of the greatest teams I’ve been a part of,” he said. “Gervais brought a young attitude. He was very enthusiastic with lots of energy and inspired you to work hard. He’s not the type of coach to stand there and yell at you.” Cassano continued: “We didn’t do great the first couple of games that year. When we played Sumner, we were still getting used to the spread,” he said. “But once we went to league play we figured it out.” Cassano said his greatest moment on the field came after

the Lions clinched their playoff berth that season. “We got to celebrate with our fans when they stormed the field,” he said. As a sophomore, Cassano notched 30 catches for 355 yards and three touchdowns. He also played punter and kicker for the team, covering six of seven field goals, including a 38-yarder. As a junior in 2012, Cassano continued to refine his skills on the field, catching 58 passes for 565 yards and two TDs. Coming into his senior year this season, Cassano took another step in his development,

stepping into a leadership role as one of just nine seniors on the roster. “It was definitely hard,” he said. “We had a really small senior class. Me and Ray Hardaway had to step up and provide leadership.” That included helping take sophomore quarterback Gresch Jensen under their wings. “Me and Ray worked with him on pass routes throughout the summer,” he said. “He’s definitely a really good quarterback.” Although the Lions struggled in the win-loss column this season, Cassano said he

was pleased with his efforts. “I really expect to have the year I had because me and Gresch had a good chemistry,” he said. Cassano finished his prep football career with 168 receptions for 2,194 yards and 20 TDs.

Community food banks in Maple Valley and Auburn were pleasantly surprised with the increased volume of summer and fall produce donated by the Soos Creek Botanical Garden. In the second year of the project, Trish Bottorff and her hearty group of volunteers planned and executed the plot, raising organically grown produce throughout the summer months. At the close of the 2013 growing season, the SCBG vegetable garden provided nearly 950 pounds of produce. Judicious use of raised beds, proper cultivation techniques and plenty of pride in their work, helped volunteers reach their goals. Plans are already in the works for next year, when they will try their hand at growing kiwis. SCBG’s 22-acre display garden is a relatively new attraction in the Auburn/ Maple Valley/Kent area. Opening in July of 2011, an

November 29, 2013 [19]

enthusiastic group of volunteers have mounted many on-site activities geared toward community service and education. SCBG is always looking for new hands and talent to help with various projects throughout the garden. The nonprofit is a great place for volunteers to learn new techniques, make friends and give back to the community. The garden closed in late November, but will reopen in March. Volunteers work behind the scenes throughout the year. Watch for the spring plant sale slated for the end of May or early June. Soos Creek Botanical Garden, at 29308 132nd Ave. SE on Lea Hill, is dedicated to promoting the enjoyment, understanding and conservation of plants and the natural world along with the community’s local history through education, research and stewardship.

Kinkade worked as a typesetter and printer for the Auburn Globe Newspaper from the 1930s to 1940s. Shortly after Kinkade passed away in 1975 his daughter-in-law, Georgia Kinkade, gifted his photo archive consisting of 369 prints of his original images to the museum. The breathtaking photographs featured in the

Abandon Hope is one of George L. Kinkade’s many photos that will be on display in January at the White River Valley Museum.

Coalition receives $10,000 grant for stewardship along Green River For the Reporter

The Rose Foundation recently selected the Middle Green River Coalition (MGRC) as a recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Puget Sound Stewardship and Mitigation Fund. The funding will support the continued water quality and habitat restoration project adjacent to Soos Creek along the Green River southeast of Auburn, near the Neeley Mansion. To date, MGRC has planted more than 3,000 native willow and cottonwood on the site and has maintained it to ensure the plants survive. The project expands on an existing Washington Department of Ecology grant that King County Department of Natural Resources received to remove blackberry and plant native vegetation along the creek to improve fish and wildlife habitat and water quality. Museum director Patricia Cosgrove puts this local photographer’s work into context: “His photos have the type of detail that shares the vastness of the mountain environment while also humbling the viewer as they stand there in the warm, dry gallery.” Friends of George Kinkade and the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe are sponsoring Kinkade’s exhibit.

COURTESY, George L. Kinkade
