IRON MAN | Eagles swimmer nears milestone

The Landing is now under new ownership. The 18-acre shopping center was officially sold in December to a Massachusetts-based firm at a price of more than $165 million. Pearlmark Harvest Lakeshore, the company that built and developed The Landing, began talking last year about selling the shopping center. The sale was always planned, as Lakeshore is a developer and not a management company. On Dec. 23, the forms were filed with King County announcing the sale to CPT The Landing, LLC, a subsidiary of AEW Capital Management of Boston for a total of $165,400,000. A total of $2,944,120 was paid in taxes to King County and Renton, with $827,000 in excise taxes coming to the city. According to King County tax roles, the property is appraised at $52,223,800 for tax purposes. Opened in 2007, occupancy at the Landing has been steadily increasing, even through the recession. National retailers such as Target, Ross and Dicks, as well as restaurants – both chain and local – and service businesses call the center home. The sale is for the retail portion of the development only and does not include the apartments, which were developed by other entities. Target is also excluded from the sale as they own their own space. [ more landing page 4 ]
Renton woman gets to go to star-studded renal prom One young Renton mom was treated to a break from the rigors of her kidney disease to attend the 15th annual Renal Teen Prom in Southern California Chelsea Brazier, 22, was chosen to attend the special prom for young dialysis patients last weekend. Northwest Kidney Centers, where Brazier receives treatment, funded her trip. It was a night of glamour and excitement put on by the Renal Support Network, based in Glendale, Calif. There were make-up and picture stations for prom attendees, dancing, food and celebrities. Last year Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D attended the prom. This year
actor Quinton Aaron of “The Blind Side” was among other stars at the event. “The fun was getting dressed up and getting to feel like my kidney disease doesn’t stop me from having a good time,” said Brazier this week. “I should be able to have a life like this that is what this did. It showed me that I can have a life and be sick at the same time.” With her cousin Leanna Davis in tow, Brazier mingled with other dialysis patients and celebrities and mugged for cameras. Brazier was diagnosed with kidney disease five years ago and must receive dialysis treatments until she gets a kidney transplant. Brazier spends four hours every other day getting dialysis, so the trip to California was Chelsea Brazier attended the Renal Support Network’s Renal Teen Prom last weekend in Glendale, Calif. a fun, nice and a great experience, she said.

Talbot Hill’s MicroSociety celebrates 20 years By TRACEY COMPTON email@example.com
For 20 years students at Talbot Hill Elementary have been participating in their own mini adult world, called MicroSociety. Started in 1993, the program has taught many kindergarten through fifth grade students life skills, creating a mini-society of student-run businesses, nonprofits and agencies. School staff is now assessing the influence of MicroSociety on its many graduates in the hopes of increasing funding for the program. Talbot’s MicroSociety is the only one in the state, although there have been others, according to staff. It is largely supported by private funds, with little district support. “It’s not about did they “Everybody is successful in Micro.” Sally Boni
get higher scores on their test scores that one day that you take a test,” said Sally Boni, Talbot’s MicroSociety coordinator. The data the school hopes to collect from graduates is more comprehensive than just test scores, Boni explains. “Everybody is successful in Micro,” she said. “That is the time of day when everybody can figure out how to make it work for them - what job they should take on, how they can be involved.” The program has changed in some areas over the years, with greater effort to hone-in on what students retain. “I think one of the ways it’s evolved now is that we’ve really tried to make it not just about student empow-
erment, but very intentional that students understand how it’s connected to their learning.” Students have their own Talbot Hill Board of Education, made up of fourthand fifth-graders, who interview class representatives. The student representatives report on the academic standards they learned in MicroSociety, the lessons learned and how they used their knowledge. Fifth-grader Nico McMillan has been a crafter, small business employee, bank manager, senator, vice president and he’s now president of Talbot’s MicroSociety. He likes the lessons students learn in the classroom and get to use in their student-run businesses and agencies, he said. “I’m very excited every single day to work on the technology that I do and teach the younger kids,” McMillan said. Outside of his student body position, McMillan works as a technology manager in MicroSociety teaching students about Microsoft Office. On Jan. 13, Talbot Hill students held their inauguration for their new student government leaders, including McMillan, complete with an official swearing in of officers by Judge Robert McBeth. McBeth is a former King County District Court judge, who has also been involved with the program since its inception. McBeth has helped students create their own court and trained them to be judges, prosecutors and police officers for MicroSociety. “I think it teaches kids how to function in real life so they learn that there are laws that govern their activities each day,” McBeth said.

associated student government. When she started at RTC, Vidals said she felt lost without a student government and clubs, disconnected from student life. “I was like sure you got administration, where you can register. But where’s the kind of extracurricular activities that you like to see?” she said. A student government was formed at Renton Technical College in 2011 at the request of Steve Hanson, the college’s president. The school is the last of the 34 technical and community colleges in the state to have a student government. “An active and committed student government makes an enormous con-

Taylor’s working on a career in the culinary field and was encouraged to become a student government leader by a friend. He started attending meeting and was motivated to get involved after he heard about the potential resources students could have with the services and activities fees. In addition to that resource, students have also voted to allocate money to a textbook access program
and to the emergency fund to help students in financial crisis. “It’s another support,” said Phuc Pham about adding the student government layer to campus. He is a student senator and club specialist. He calls his fellow officers like a family and a motivation for coming to school beyond just wanting to go to class and get the homework. “It’s someone you can talk to when you’re having problems,” he said. “It’s just another life support when you think about it.” Reporter Tracey Compton can be reached at 425-2553484, ext. 5052 or email@example.com

Occupancy at The Landing is presently at more than 90 percent. Renton Administrative Services Administrator Iwen Wang said the Excise tax money headed for the city can only be used for capital projects or debt service under state law, but the money will certainly help. “We budgeted for $2.1 million so this definitely is a healthy increase to our budget,” she said. Wang also said the city believes the new buyer, known for buying and maintaining quality shopping center properties throughout the country, will be a good thing for the city. “We think it will be positive to the whole Landing area,” she said.

Renton Technical College has slowly but steadily established and built out a student government since 2011 and is adding student clubs to the mix for the first time this year. Establishing a student government and resources for student activities is so important that students voted to increase their services and activities fees last year. Fees went from $60 per quarter for fulltime students to $155 per
quarter and creates a pool of money designated for student body use. The funds have been used this year to support a student-run tutoring center and to support veterans’ outreach on campus. “This is giving them a good opportunity to create something that is important to them and empower them and give them a budget that they can work with,” said Abigail Vidals about the fee increase. She is the student vice president of student success, part of the school’s

71-year-old Seahawks fan fights off attack, hangs on to jersey By DEAN A. RADFORD
He walks with a cane and in November he had four discs placed in his neck, but don’t mess with this Seahawks fan. On Jan. 11, a 71-year-old Renton man drove to the downtown library spanning the Cedar River. But he arrived about a half hour before the library was to open. So he decided to walk back to his car. He didn’t get far. Approaching him was man in his late teens, with a goatee and a flat-top haircut. He was wearing camouflaged pants. He demanded the elderly man’s Seahawks shirt emblazoned with the name Hasselbeck. But the 71-year-old wasn’t going to be a victim this day. He punched and kicked as the heavy-set man tried to strip the shirt off him. But the assault continued. The elderly man swung his cane but missed his attacker, who grabbed him by the shoulders and threw him to the ground. He scraped his left elbow and knee in the fall, causing him pain. His attacker fled from the library and into Liberty Park. The elderly man went home and called Renton Police to make his report. He was still wearing his Seahawks jersey.
All Renton, all the time.

Give Richard Sherman a pass: He’s the heart of Seattle Seahawks I should probably start this column by clearing the decks in the form of full disclosure: As an import to the Pacific Northwest, I am not a true, dyed-in-the-wool Seahawks fan. It’s true. My sports affiliations lie with the City of Brotherly Love, as Philadelphia was my home when those connections were made, sitting with my grandfather and watching the Phillies all summer and the Eagles in the fall. There was a time in the 1980s, however, when the Eagles were just terrible and no fun to root for among the sea of Giants fans in which I lived (it was the Bill Parcels, Phil Simms years and the G-Men were every bit as good as the Eagles weren’t). At that time, I started rooting for the Seahawks, who under Chuck Knox were the single most fun team to watch on Sundays. I distinctly remember that team faking field goals and punts, running trick plays like the hook and ladders or Statue of Liberty. Though the Iggles remained my main team. That said, I am 100 percent rooting for the Seahawks this year. Holy cow, what an exciting team. I have been out here for more than 10 years now and while most Seattle fans are fairweather at best, Seahawks fans have been dedicated and LOUD every year, good, bad or indifferent. This area loves its football team, especially this team, this year. And how could you not? I got on this bandwagon back in August and though I would never consider myself a “12th Man,” I have been loudly and proudly touting this team to all of my East Coast friends. And, like you, I spent Sunday afternoon pacing around my living room feverishly rubbing my hands together and yelling at my television when it was necessary. Also like you, when Richard Sherman tipped the ball away from Michael Crabtree and into the waiting hands of Malcolm Smith (just like they drew it up!), I yelled in relief and jumped up and down in celebration. I love Richard Sherman. He’s the best in his position and not only did San Francisco know it (they didn’t throw in his direction all day), he proved it when on the only pass going his way, he launched himself into the air and made a game-saving tip, punching the 12th Man’s ticket to football’s promised land. Or, at least in this case, New Jersey. Then came the now world-famous Sherman “rant” with sideline “reporter” Erin Andrews in which Sherman proclaimed himself the best and the receiver he just beat “mediocre,” adding “Don’t talk about me!” Again, I love that guy. I loved the interview. I love the energy. I loved that it wasn’t the standard cliches. But then I was also not surprised when a whole bunch of people freaked out. However, the vitriol aimed at Sherman this week has been ridiculous and stupid. The man had literally just made a play that sent his team to the pinnacle of their sport, besting a receiver with whom he has had issues in the past. THEN, and this is what they didn’t show [ more EDITOR’S NOTE page 7 ]
People of Renton love to give; their generosity is paying off We live in a country rich in the spirit of generosity. From our churches to our charities, Americans work hard to make life better for those in need. I see it every day in the Renton area. From the multitude of people who volunteer their time, to those who make cash contributions, to those who choose careers in a helping profession and provide frontline services. Because of them, people in need can pick up fresh food in our food banks, receive life-saving prescriptions from a free clinic, get clean clothes for school, find safe housing, receive necessary training to get a job, access drug and alcohol treatment, enjoy the arts, learn to be independent, graduate high school, go to college, get counseling, and so much more. As the executive director of the Renton Community Foundation, I work closely with the philanthropic community. What I see is both inspiring and heartening. We have organizations working to support almost every aspect of humanity. From the Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul that help people put food on the table, to the Way Back Inn and Vision House that help transition the homeless to safe places to live, to emerging groups like Birthday Dreams that provide birthdays for children who would otherwise watch that special day pass by without recognition. It is said that to be truly generous, a person must give regardless of what they get in return. I can attest to the fact that people didn’t choose to work in the nonprofit hoping to make money – quite the contrary. Their passion is to help someone in need, and that passion is palpable; you have but to talk with them to catch the “buzz.” But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t big benefits for working in the field of philanthropy, because even simple acts of generosity are good Lynn Bohart

for you. They build up a person’s confidence, instill a positive attitude, deepen relationships, and generally make you feel good. Yes, it feels good when you help a woman get off food stamps or find the transportation she needs to get to a job interview. It feels good to give a struggling child the tools he needs to stay in school and graduate. It feels good to know that because of your efforts, a family will sleep safe and dry for one more night. It even feels good to help a senior living on a fixed income pay for the emergency pet care needed to save the only companion he or she might have in the world. The depth and breadth of the philanthropic efforts in Renton are extensive, and the spirit of generosity is strong. We are people who care – and care a lot. We may joke about the lack of sunshine here in the Northwest, but the sun shines nonetheless on our philanthropic community. And on Wednesday, Jan. 29, the Renton Community Foundation hopes to shine a spotlight on it. The foundation will celebrate its “14th Annual Circle of Giving Awards Ceremony” at the Renton Senior Activity Center.

say it was not “charity” but an “investment” in the kids, all of whom he made sign a contract to get a backpack. The contract states that every kid who got a backpack has to keep their grades up and stay out of trouble. If they do, they get another pack full of supplies next year. In between events, I had an opportunity to talk to Sherman. I found him to be friendly, intelligent, well-spoken and truly dedicated to helping kids get out of poverty.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is surrounded by Foster High School students in Tukwila at a pep rally in October before the school’s homecoming game. Afterward, Sherman met with students to give them backpacks filled with school supplies, which he told them was an investment in them. Brian beckley, Renton Reporter
on television, he patted the receiver on the butt and stuck out his hand, saying “Good game.” That’s when Michael Crabtree pushed Richard Sherman right in the facemask. You can watch it. There’s gifs of it, there’s video, there’s photos. Google it. It’s a fact. At that point, by Sherman’s own admission, he “went off ” and threw a “choke” signal at the San Francisco quarterback, who, let’s be honest, choked, and was promptly hit with a taunting penalty. Thirty seconds later, he was talking to Erin Andrews and the instant punditry of Twitter and Facebook lit up with the n-word and, as captured so perfectly in that headphones commercial they played during the game, the word “thug.” And I laughed and “I realized that laughed and laughed. the persona of See, I had a chance Richard Sherman to meet Richard on the field and Sherman earlier this the actual person year at an event at Richard Sherman Foster High School off the field were in Tukwila. Sherman somewhat different was a surprise guest guys.” Brian Beckley at the school’s homecoming pep rally and arrived bearing brand new cleats for every member of the relatively poor high school’s football team. He talked to the kids, judged a dance contest, and then headed over to a second event at the school, put on by his Blanket Coverage Foundation. At the event, Sherman and his foundation provided about 100 kids with backpacks filled with school supplies and other things, like socks. But Sherman, who grew up in poverty in Compton, was quick to
Stanford with a degree in communications. The man is very smart, very driven and very personable. Like a lot of people, I had a preconceived notion of Sherman based on his antics on the field and around game time. But I have to say, I was instantly made a fan and I realized that the persona of Richard Sherman on the field and the actual person Richard Sherman off the field were somewhat different guys. The country will realize that this week too. Richard Sherman is great for Seattle and great for the game of football. If he wants to go on TV and proclaim himself better than some other dude after making a play that kind of proves it, I am all for it. And I can’t wait to watch him prove it again against Peyton Manning. Go Hawks.

She needs the answer: Is the grenade live? By DEAN A. RADFORD firstname.lastname@example.org
A Renton woman needed the help of the Port of Seattle bomb squad to go through her grandfather’s memorabilia. She called Renton Police on Jan. 15 after finding a grenade while cleaning out her grandfather’s apartment in the Houser Terrace apartments. The grenade was in a box; its pin was still in place. The question: Was it live? After looking at the grenade, the responding officer decided to call in the bomb squad, which determined the grenade was no longer live and removed it. Her grandfather served during World War II.
Robbery suspect turns self in A robbery suspect called police to turn himself in Jan. 12 even before his attempt to rob Walgreens on Rainier Avenue South was reported.
A responding officer asked dispatchers to call Walgreens to confirm a robbery had occurred. The suspect, a 46-year-old Renton man, demanded money from a store clerk, who refused, thinking that maybe the request was a joke. The suspect then pulled something out of his pocket, which was black and square, which the suspect said looked like the butt of an officer’s gun. The suspect demanded money again, but looking upset, walked from the store. The clerk reported the robbery attempt to his manager, who hadn’t yet called 911 because she was trying to locate video of the robbery attempt. Officers arrested the suspect at a nearby motel on Rainier Avenue. He was booked into the King County Jail in Seattle for investigation of felony robbery. The police report didn’t give a reason why the man surrendered on his own.

The black object he implied was a weapon was his cell-phone charger.
Stolen purse has Ruger A purse containing a Ruger 9mm semiautomatic handgun was stolen from a van Jan. 15 while the owner was at her yoga workout on Carr Road. The Renton woman had left her Coach purse on the front seat. Inside the purse were the gun, a Gucci wallet, a cell phone, debit and credit cards and her drivers license. She found inside her minivan a green and brown cloth handbag that didn’t belong to her but had been reported stolen just shortly before in a car prowl in the same parking lot. The loss was estimated at about $1,100. The thieves broke the front-door glass to get inside the minivan.
No mistaking the odor The odor of beer emanating from a 52-year-old Seattle man’s clothing was overwhelming Jan. 13 as he sat directly behind the driver’s seat of a Metro bus parked at the Metro Transit Station downtown. The man had changed his clothes on the bus and was asleep. Officers saw the man pull up his pants; he wasn’t wearing any shoes. Officers told him the bus driver didn’t want him on the bus any longer and he agreed to leave once he was fully clothed. He showed officers his identification. He got off the bus and sat down on a bay bench. Waiting customers got on the bus. About 15 minutes later, the man stood up, unzipped his pants and urinated at the bus stop in full view. He then waved at the officer, who had been watching him from about 10 feet away in his cruiser. He was booked into the SCORE regional jail for investigation of breach of peace.
Internet gun deal fraudulent A Renton man trying to buy a gun over the Internet lost $1,273 in the deal. The man found the gun, an FN 5.7 semiautomatic pistol, on the website, armslist. com. Over the course of several emails, he agreed to buy the gun with a bank check from a woman in Skiatook, Okla. The check was cashed but he didn’t receive the gun. Detectives in Skiatook interviewed the woman, who admitted she cashed the check. Armslist.com also told him via email that the ad was fraudulent.
She needed money for son A 41-year-old Graham woman told officers she took more than $600 worth of merchandise from Fred Meyer Jan. 7 because she’s unemployed and her son needed

Deaf man robbed of cell A 39-year-old deaf man was robbed of his iPhone the afternoon of Jan. 8 as he walked along Lake Avenue South. The Renton man told officers a man got out of a sedan and took the phone. He wasn’t threatened and no weapons were seen or implied. The man and officer communicated by pen and paper. He gave the officer a brief description of the robber.
Teen’s phone stolen A male in his late teens or early 20s grabbed a teenage boy from behind and stole his cell phone Jan. 10 as he was walking home. The 14-year-old was texting when he was grabbed around his neck. The robber took the phone with his other hand. The teen ran for about 75 yards before looking back; the suspect was gone. But during the robbery he got a quick glance at the robber.
Counterfeit money in yard A Renton woman on Jan. 9 found a sheet of counterfeit money in her front yard on Southeast 167th Street. On the sheet were half-printed $20 and $10 bills. She turned over the sheet to an officer.
Victim to keep mum An 18-year-old Seattle man was robbed of his wallet with $100 inside the evening of Jan. 9 while standing near Renton High School. The victim told officers he was standing next to a friend’s car when a Crown Victoria pulled up with three men inside. One of the men grabbed him by the neck and pulled him the ground. Someone then stole his wallet. The victim gave a brief description, but refused to cooperate with officers further, including refusing to testify in court against anyone. He declined to write a statement. His friend said he might be able to identify the suspects but changed his mind after talking with the victim. He didn’t want to write a statement either.

Seahawks players care for even the littlest fans
By John Boyle email@example.com
hen Seattle Seahawks tight end Zach Miller got a phone call from a friend and former college teammate, he didn’t think much about the simple act of signing a football and some Seahawks merchandise and sticking them in the mail. The call came from Cincinnati Bengals guard Mike Pollak, who played with Miller at Arizona State. Pollak had heard from his wife about Dave and Kristina Quick, Seahawks fans in Brier with newborn twins, one of whom was at Seattle Children’s Hospital following multiple surgeries. Kristi Pollak and Kristina Quick had attended physical therapy school together. So, in one of those small-world moments, Mrs. Pollak suggested to her husband that they reach out to Miller, whose wife, Ashley, had recently given birth to twins. Like the Quicks, the Millers’ 10-month old twin girls had spent some time in the hospital after birth and the Seahawks couple knew the angst burdening the Quicks. So, Miller and his wife didn’t hesitate showing their compassion, didn’t think twice about packaging up a card and some items signed by Seahawks players and sending them to a family they had never met. On the other end of that gesture, Dave Quick came home from a two-day stint at the hospital where his son Franklin had recently undergone open-heart surgery, opened a mysterious package on his front porch and shed a few tears. “I wish I would have had a camera on my face,” he said. “It was just disbelief, like, ‘Where did this come from? How did this happen? Why?’ All of those questions. Then everything kind of hit me, I cried a little bit. It’s just the coolest thing that these guys would take a few minutes out of their day to sign stuff, send it with a card. “I still have trouble putting into words the feeling that I had. Our life was the hospital, every day, all day. Any sort of normalcy was out the window, so to have somebody do something like that to cheer us up for a few minutes was incredible.” The best part about this story – and the reason Dave Quick felt compelled to reach out to a reporter to tell it – is that the kindness and caring shown the Quicks is not all that unusual. The Quicks’ tale is the story of so many sports fans who have been touched by the generosity of athletes who use their fame and/or their fortune to help make a difference in people’s lives. “I can definitely relate to anyone who has twins or premature babies,” said Miller, whose twin girls were born seven weeks early and spent three weeks in the NICU at

Dave and Kristina Quick hold their 8-week-old twins Franklin (left) and Harrison at their home in Brier. Complications with Franklin’s health when the twins were born led to an extended stay at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Genna Martin, Everett Herald Evergreen Hospital. “They need that extra attention.” Not long before Miller sent that surprise package of signed memorabilia to the Quicks, the couple and their infant twins, Franklin and Harrison, got a hospital visit from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Ashton, who stop by Seattle Children’s every Tuesday. Wilson gets a lot of attention – and rightly so – for those visits, but he’s just one of many in Seattle’s locker room making a difference out in the community. Whether it’s Miller sending a gift to a family he never met; or Richard Sherman starting a foundation to help underprivileged kids; or Doug Baldwin trading autographs for donations to a local food bank, the Seahawks roster is full of people who understand they can make a much bigger impact off the field than on it. Are there some bad seeds in any NFL locker room? Sure, but that’s true of any workplace, especially one that employs 61 men, many of whom are in their early 20s. (Seriously, how good of decisions would you have made given a bunch of money and fame at the age of 22?). In the case of athletes, a lot more good goes unnoticed while the bad things become big news. So it’s worth pointing out, from time to time, the positive impact athletes have on their communities. “Look at what these people do,” Dave Quick said. “They don’t know us. If they didn’t send anything, we would have never known. So much is focused on DUIs, Adderall, weed, what have you, but there’s a lot of good people on this (Seahawks) team. Zach Miller’s a testament to that. These guys care about their fans, about the community. You can’t say enough about that.”
While the Quicks were at Children’s, doctors and nurses started joking that they never saw Dave smile. Kristina Quick noticed that as her husband spent days on end with Franklin while she was at home taking care of Harrison. So when Russell and Ashton Wilson included Franklin’s room on one of their weekly visits, it made a real impact. “After that, he smiled, he was so happy,” Kristina Quick said. “And after we got the box from Zach, he was really emotional. They don’t know us, we’re not anybody. We’re just some people from Brier, Washington, who like watching the Hawks play. For them to ... they have so many other things going on in their lives, and to kind of feel singled out as someone fortunate to interact with them or get something nice from them, it blows me away. They probably don’t think it’s that big of a deal, but it’s a huge deal for people like us. “There’s nothing exciting going on in our lives, this is it,” she continued, nodding to the one baby she was feeding, then to the other one drinking from a bottle in her husband’s arms. “It was a welcome distraction from everything. This is our reality, but we got a break.” Providing that break is something Wilson has done since college, when he started visiting sick children in hospitals while he was the quarterback at North Carolina State, then Wisconsin. Wilson, whose father Harrison died in 2010 due to complications from diabetes, knew more than most people his age what it was like to spend countless hours at the hospital with a loved one. So when he saw a chance to bring a little joy to sick children and their families, he jumped at the chance to do it, and has since made visits to [ more Preemies page 11 ]

Seattle Children’s Hospital part of his weekly routine. “It’s just a special thing for me, and it’s one of those things where they don’t realize how much they give to me,” Wilson said. “I go through the week, there’s a lot of things going on, a lot of people talking good about you, bad about you, and at the same time you’re getting ready for a game, and you sometimes don’t realize how important just life is in general. Just being able to walk, just being able to breathe. “It gives you a tremendous amount of perspective because it’s one of those things where, we’re professional athletes, a lot of people look up to Zach Miller us and all of that. But at the same time, it’s one of those things when you have a kid who’s 8 years old who wants to be able to play football, but he can’t because he has a bone problem or a brain tumor or something like that. It’s unfortunate. You just want to give them hope and let them know you’re praying for them.” Wilson and so many Seahawks understand that they can be more to fans than just Sunday entertainment. The Quicks, those “people from Brier, Washington, who like watching the Hawks play,” are just one of many families who have experienced the difference athletes can make. “That’s the thing we’ve been talking about as players, trying to be involved as much as possible,” Wilson said. “You only get this opportunity to play for two, three years, sometimes, eight, sometimes 10 or 15 – hopefully I’m on the 15to-20 side. But it’s one of those things where you know you might not get those moments for too long and you want to be able to share with other people and share your experiences, so that’s what we’re trying to do here.”
with enough going for him to overcome his lack of height. Here’s what has allowed Wilson to transcend his diminutive — by NFL quarterback standards, at least — stature:
HEAD Wilson’s work ethic is legendary. He will out-work, outstudy and out-prepare just about any opponent, and has the intelligence not just to be prepared for a game, but also to know how to keep himself safe on the run, a key element for a mobile quarterback.
EYES Plenty of quarterbacks can buy time with their legs; few are as adept at keeping their eyes downfield as they move, leading to huge plays when the coverage breaks down. Vision is also key for shorter quarterbacks who need to be able to find passing lanes through taller linemen.
ARM Often times undersized quarterback means undersized arm, but that’s not the case with Wilson, who has a powertful arm, even by NFL standards. And, perhaps just as important, that arm is extremely accurate.
HEART No matter how physically talented or intelligent Wilson is, he still had to overcome a lifetime of people telling him he was too small, that he should stick with baseball or move to safety or wide receiver. Wilson’s unwavering belief in his ability to be great is a big reason why he’s become one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks.
HANDS Wilson may be undersized for a quarterback, but he actually had the biggest hands of any quarterback at last year’s NFL Scouting Combine. That’s imperative for ball security, especially for a quarterback who plays in a soggy climate.

LEGS Wilson’s weekly Houdini acts don’t just keep him out of harm’s way, they set up some of the Seahawks’ biggest plays. Wilson could thrive as a pocket passer, but his elusiveness and running ability only make Seattle’s offense that much more difficult to defend. Heading into Sunday’s game against Arizona, he ranks second on the team in rushing yards with 508.

FEET Wilson’s arm strength helps him make those impressive throws on the run, but so too does his ability to get his feet in proper position even while evading pressure. Proper footwork within the pocket is essential for any quarterback, but especially for an undersized one who needs to be in the right place to find the right passing lanes.

What is a Health Care Directive? Each person can make decisions about their own health care. A person can also indicate whether they want artificial life support to prolong life after the point of natural death by signing a Health Care Directive. The earlier version was called a Directive to Physicians. These documents are often erroneously referred to as a living will. A Health Care Directive can express decisions about end-of-life health care that may be deemed futile. Protect your right to distribute your estate as you intend in a cost-effective manner.

Renton Police investigate Monday night shooting Renton police are investigating a shooting that left one man with non-life-threatening injuries Monday night. Just after 9 p.m., police found the 22-year-old Renton resident with a gunshot wound, inside an apartment building near Hardie Avenue Southwest and Renton Avenue extension. The man was transported to Harborview Medical Center, where he was treated and released. Evidence at the scene indicates that shots were fired from outside the apartment into the victim’s apartment, through a window, police report. “We don’t know the motive for this shooting, nor the type of gun, other than the fact that it was a handgun,” said Detective Robert Onishi, a spokesman for the Renton Police Department. Onishi said officers have been called to the apartment complex before, but not more frequently than similar-sized buildings. Police are asking that anyone who may have seen or heard anything related to the crime contact Detective Kordel at 425-430-7500 and refer to case number 14-805.

Video shoot goes to pot By DEAN A. RADFORD firstname.lastname@example.org
A light-blue Crown Victoria pulled up behind a Chrysler sedan on Aberdeen Avenue Northeast late in the afternoon on Jan. 12. Someone in the Crown Vic (the type often driven by police officers) pointed a gun at those inside the sedan, all in view of a resident of a nearby apartment complex, and both cars then left. But they returned a short time later and someone got out of the Ford and approached the sedan while pointing a gun at those inside. The resident called 911. All the players were still on the street when Renton Police officers arrived to a call, “threats with a weapon.” Officers ordered the five men to the ground, with their hands up in the high-risk stop. K9 Boss was on scene in case someone tried to flee. The one holding the gun, a 24-year-old Des Moines man wearing a gun belt, was read his rights.
It was an air soft gun. He agreed to talk. He and his friends were in Renton to film a rap video. He’s the director, who does music videos for local rap artists. Today, he was playing a police officer, a role which required him to get out of the Crown Victoria and contact the people inside the sedan. He was just using a fake firearm. But what officers were about to find wasn’t fake. The driver of the Crown Victoria gave officers written permission to search the car, including its trunk, for firearms and other contraband. The car had a temporary license plate on the back window. Inside the trunk was an open shoulder bag. Officers could see a silver .45-caliber Ruger, a large jar containing 21.82 grams of marijuana and a scale. No one claimed ownership of the shoulder bag; the driver had no idea what was in the trunk of the car, which belonged to a friend’s fiance. Officers did determine the identity of the gun’s registered owner. The Renton Police report indicated that all the “actors” were cooperative. No one was arrested, but the case was referred to the Renton Prosecutor’s Office because a firearm was involved.

“For American adults, the incidence of kidney disease is 1 in 7 people,” said Linda Sellers in an email. Sellers is a spokesperson for Northwest Kidney Centers, which has a location in Renton. “Many of them don’t know it because kidney disease may not have obvious symptoms until the damage is severe and permanent,” Sellers said. Brazier suffered kidney failure three years ago when she was pregnant with her daughter Tatum. She did make it to her own freshmen and junior prom in high school, but wanted to attend this prom because it sounded incredible, she said. Many of the teens attending the event miss out on events like prom because of their treatment regimen. “I got to meet new people and realize that there are other people who are going through the same thing I’m going through,” Brazier said. The Renal Support Network is a partner with Northwest Kidney Centers. The center has sponsored a patient to attend the prom three times in the past five years. “It’s an opportunity to support a partner organization and shed some public light on the epidemic of chronic kidney disease, up 30 percent in the last 10 years,” said Sellers. “People whose kidney disease has advanced to kidney failure—as Chelsea’s disease did—have a very limited life expectancy unless they get dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant. With one of those treatments, life expectancy for a person with kidney failure can be many many more years.” The Renal Teen Prom is held every year for those age 14 to 24, who have kidney disease.

Eagles beat Rams
The Lindbergh Eagles boys swim team on Tuesday defeated the Rogers Rams 102-84 to move to 7-1 overall and 3-1 in the Seamount League. The meet came down to a thrilling final event with the Eagles top team of Timothy Ramos, Max Aedo, A.J. Lim and Andrew Franco-Munoz coming from behind in the 400-yard freestyle relay to take first place in the event and secure the win. The Eagles were scheduled to take on Kennedy Catholic, who led the Seamount League, Thursday at home.

Lindbergh senior nears swimming’s ‘iron man’ By Brian Beckley firstname.lastname@example.org
ith three meets left to go this season, Lindbergh senior Andrew Franco-Munoz is poised to do something only one other Eagles swimmer has done in the past 20 years: he’s about to qualify for every single individual event at this year’s state meet. Known in swimming as the “iron man,” qualifying for every stroke and every distance is a feat that coach Roger Miron said shows a versatility that most swimmers just can’t muster. “It’s a difficult feat,” Miron said Tuesday. At Tuesday’s meet, Franco-Munoz, who is primarily a 100-yard butterfly and 50-yard freestyle sprinter, won the 500-yard freestyle event with a good enough time to qualify for the state meet. Now all that’s left is the 100-yard breast stroke and both coach and swimmer are convinced he can get the qualifying time before the end of the season to complete the iron man. Franco-Munoz, 18, has been swimming since he was 8 years old, first with the Chinook club and then with King County Aquatics. He has been a standout for Lindbergh since first hitting the water for the Eagles as a freshman. But this year, he says he is even “surprising myself.” “I’ve been dropping so much time this year,” he said. Franco-Munoz attributes the change to paying closer attention to what his coach is telling him during practices and making sure to give 100 percent. “In practice I’ve been doing a lot better,” he
Andrew Franco-Munoz, 18, has been swimming since he was 8 years old. This season, the Lindbergh senior is on the verge of completing swimming’s ‘iron man.’ Brian Beckley, Renton Reporter said, adding that some additional time in the weight room this off season helped him get stronger than he’s ever been. “Andrew right now is swimming with a purpose,” Miron said of the two-time 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly district champion. “Being his senior year, he wants to go out with a bang.” According to Miron, Franco-Munoz had
Highlander boys basketball atop the Seamount standings By Brian Beckley email@example.com
After dropping their first game of the season in late December, the Hazen boys basketball team has now reeled off six consecutive wins to earn a place at the top of the standings. On Jan. 17, the Highlanders improved their record to 13-1 overall and remained a perfect 8-0 in the Seamount League with an 80-39 victory over Tyee. “I think we are continuing to improve as the year moves on which is encouraging as we approach this stretch run. In
the Tyee game, as a team we rebounded the ball very well,” said coach Ryan Thompson in an email. Hazen out-rebounded Tyee 39-15 on Friday. Dominic Green again led the Highlanders with 18 points on 9 of 10 shooting. Derrick DeMers had 12 points and 4 rebounds of his own while Connor O’Hearn added 12 points, 6 assists, and 7 steals in the win. On Jan. 15, the Highlanders had little trouble with Evergreen, going into Evergreen High School and beating the Wolverines 66-29. Dominic Green led the way

Andy Jolly added 8 points, 6 rebounds and 3 steals, while Isaiah Davis had 10 points and 9 rebounds and Connor O’Hearn added 12 points and 4 steals of his own. Coach Thompson wrote in his email that his team played well and put in a much better defensive effort than they had in the previous game, a 68-57 win over Foster on Jan. 13 that saw Hazen turn the ball over 25 times, a season-high. Thompson said Green had
some eligibility issues that kept him from competing the postseason last year. The coach said he took responsibility, apologized to his teammates and vowed to be better this season. “He hasn’t disappointed one bit,” Miron said. “He’s swimming almost angry. His goal is to break records.” [ more Iron man page 16 ]

20 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists against Foster, but it was Davis, who had 19 points and 10 rebounds, that “brought a lot of energy we were lacking” to spur on the Highlanders. On Jan. 10, the Highlanders welcomed Kennedy Catholic to Hazen High School, crushing the Lancers 84-52. Thompson said his team “played as good as we have ever played in my time here” and credited the “great home crowd” with helping the team get out to a 30-12 lead in the first quarter alone.

Miron said Franco-Munoz came into the season in great shape and has shown great determination in practices and meets. Franco-Munoz, who said he does not plan to swim at college where he plans to go pre-law, credits his coach with helping him drop time and offers simple advice to his younger teammates on how to improve their times. “Listen to Roger,” he said. “He knows what he’s doing.” With three meets left, Miron said he fully expects Franco-Munoz to qualify in the breaststroke as well, but the swimmer himself already has his sites set on bigger goals. “I’m just really looking forward to states,” he said.
