Renton families affected by Seattle Diocese ID theft By DEAN A. RADFORD

Sing it!

About two dozen case reports have been filed with the Renton Police Department by Renton residents who may be the victims of income-tax fraud, possibly caused by the theft of personal information from Archdiocese of Seattle employees and volunteers. The Police Department is forwarding the cases to the Internal Revenue Service, which is investigating the fraud cases, along with other agencies and private security experts. The IRS has also contacted Renton residents about the possibility that fraudulent income-tax returns were filed using their stolen information. A local police report is part of the process to report a suspected or real incident of identity theft to authorities. More than 1,000 people throughout the Arch[ more Fraud page 9 ]

City officials keeping an eye on Renton’s steep slopes after Oso slide By Brian Beckley

With this past weekend’s deadly Oso Mudslide on everyone’s mind, attention has turned to many of the slopes and hillsides that so many of us live near as we wonder if the same thing could happen here. “We have areas in Renton that are sensitive areas,” Public Works Administrator Gregg Zimmerman said this week but added that he has seen no pending problems around the city’s many hills.

According to Zimmerman, his crews routinely keep an eye on several slopes in the city, based primarily on historical experience. City workers have even produced a map of potential slide areas within the city. Among the slopes they watch are along Lake Washington Boulevard, the slope to the west of Rainier Avenue adjacent to the airport and a slope on the north side of the Maple Valley Highway, across from the old Stoneway Concrete batch plant. Zimmerman said crews from

“It is heartbreaking to see how many sweet, little souls are in these shelters waiting for someone to rescue and love them. Please, the only way to fix this problem is to spay/neuter your pet and adopt from shelters/rescue organizations.” - Facebook user Karen McKinnon on last week’s “For Good, For Ever” column about rescue dogs.

The Great Duck Caper Community Services Administrator Terry Higashiyama is “arrested” as an accomplice by Police Chief Kevin Milosevich on March 22 during the Renton Rotary’s annual dinner/auction. Approximately 250 people attended the fundraiser, which this year took the form of a mystery during which attendees could interview characters and look for clues in an attempt to solve “The Great Duck Caper.” Higashiyama was not the culprit and was “arrested” as a joke.

Margie Williams Helping Hands serves East Highlands By TRACEY COMPTON

The Margie Williams Helping Hands Center, to support the homeless and those in need of food and clothing, has a new director. Crystal Bolts, the daughter of the late Rev. Margie Williams, is now the head of the nonprofit, located in the East Renton Highlands neighborhood. The center serves a diverse population with emergency food and clothing and house-bound seniors who are on fixed on incomes with home food deliveries. “I believe the mission is still to feed God’s people,” said Bolts. The center feeds a diverse array of clients every Saturday, from 8 to 11 a.m., with the help of volunteers. There are Russians, Yugoslavians and Filipinos, who frequent the center. There are also lots of elderly from all backgrounds who make the food bank part of their

routine. “We love them; they love us,” said Bolts. “They call us by name. It’s Helping Hands; it’s a welcome place for the community to come. I feel like they feel welcome. It’s growing; it’s changing - a lot of love here, God’s here.” The center was started in 2001, after Rev. Margie Williams had already passed away. After a career as an educator in the Seattle School District and in the military, Williams became an evangelist. She moved her family from Seattle to Renton and started a small church in her home. Then Williams and her congregation landed at the Solid Rock Building in downtown Renton and eventually founded Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Baptist Church. “I understand she paid the first rent out of her own pocket,” said her daughter. “Then we moved up here, up to our own building and here we are today.”

Margie Williams Helping Hands Center is located on the church’s property and is just adjacent to it. It occupies several rooms filled with food in a building there and has clothing and bedding for emergency

Redfin reports that Renton homes sold 25 percent faster, spending an average of 29 days on the market in February. The median home price was $275,000 and prices were up 2.8 percent, according to numbers compiled by Redfin. “Meanwhile, Redfin clients’ growth in demand for home tours and offers was sluggish compared to the frenzy that had already taken off this time last year,” said Kafia Hosh, Redfin spokesperson in an email. “For the Puget Sound area, the big sting is both decreasing affordability and a lack of inventory.” Redfin publishes Real-Time Home Price Tracker at

All of life’s puzzles solved with cheese

I have found a new meaning to life – cheese making. After spending the past several weeks watching political Kabuki kooks find ways to be silly and not govern, I needed some relief. After a couple sleepless nights, my own personal, political Lorax popped out of a tree stump in my bedroom looking all grumpy and rumpled. “The secret to getting elected is finding friends to pound signs into the ground … then comes governing,” he said. “All those weird rules about being open and transparent. Seriously, it makes my tummy hurt.” Then the Lorax repeated some line from the 60s – make cheese not words . . . or something like that. He was chewing Cocoa Puffs for his tummy ache and I couldn’t quite understand him. I rolled out of bed and checked out some cheese-making websites. I discovered a whole world of cheese making. I remember my grandmother used to make cheese and butter. I can still see a white, cheesecloth bag hanging on the porch with whey dripping out from it. My grandmother always made the best-tasting meals for me. One of my favorites was grandma’s wild blackberry pie, right out of the oven with her homemade vanilla ice cream on top. Of course her crusts was perfect, and made with buttermilk, butter and lard. One reason is grandma’s pies were perfect was she had real buttermilk, made from our cows on the farm. And that leads me back to the point of this column and the meaning of my silly life. While researching cheese making, I came across the recipe for making my own buttermilk. When I read it, I got all warm and fuzzy and had an out-of-body experience. All I recall from the recipe is to get some raw milk, four or five gallons I think, set it on the counter until something gets lumpy and glumpy, like floating balls of . . . never mind. Now that sounds like real food. The chefs on food TV always talk about multiple textures and this is milk with variable textures and some chew to it. One cannot ask for more out of life than that. I will now be able to magically create buttermilk, cheese and many globs of glump that reveal the secrets of the universe and solve annoying grammar questions that God hid from mankind after Adam ended a sentence with a preposition. Today I am feeling much better about the governing glad hands who are wrestling with these weird rules. There is a solution, floating somewhere . . . on top of old buttermilk.

Early intervention will prevent suicides, major cause of death for young people Teen suicide is a horrible thing and a growing health concern. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, it is the third-leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24, surpassed only by homicide and accidents. Such a rare unfortunate act struck close to home March 3 when a Green River Community College international student from China was found dead on the walking trail near campus. Auburn police say that the student took his life. The Reporter’s policy is not to disclose his name. According to college officials, the Chinese consulate was informed, the student’s family notified. “Some people had no idea, other students were shocked by it,” said May Huang, a sophomore at GRCC. Huang and other students are upset that college officials didn’t directly and widely inform them of the incident. “I am very disappointed at my school for never officially releasing this information to all students as well as to the community,” Huang said. “. . . While international students did receive an official email, and there was a post on Facebook from a worker from International Programs (on her personal page), the entire school hasn’t been notified.” But Ross Jennings, GRCC vice president of International Programs & Extended Learning, said students and staff were notified of the death on the day it happened. “We have had three counseling and remembrance sessions specifically for students, two the week of the death and one last week, in Mark Klaas

which the name of the student was identified,” Jennings responded in an email. “The school newspaper also ran a detailed article about the suicide, also giving the name of the student.” Huang’s concern is understandable. She no longer takes her dog for walks along the trail. For other students, it remains an emotional time. “It’s a terrible, scary tragedy,” said one freshman student, who wanted to remain anonymous. “We tend to look the other way when a suicide happens, but we can’t here. It happened to one of our classmates, and we must deal with it as best as we can.” More than anything, students at Green River want to increase community awareness of the suicide issue. Taking it a step further, a committee of experts has convened to review deaths of young people in King County and is calling for action to prevent them, after a high number of such suicides in 2012. Last year, 11 children died by suicide, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office. That compares to four suicides in an average year among children younger than 18 years of age. In recent years, the highest number of youth suicides in any one year had been seven, based on a review of data from 1999 to the present. While the numbers do not represent a statistical trend, the suicides are worrisome. The King County Child Death Review Committee recommends increasing public awareness of the warning signs of suicide and risk factors for suicidal behavior and available crisis response resources. The committee also wants [ more suicides page 5 ]

State to develop plan to Ask a Doctor: A urologist answers questions reduce suicide for all ages about prostate cancer and other men’s issues

Mark Klaas is editor of the Auburn Reporter. He can be reached at


Q. A.

What are the risk factors and symptoms? The biggest risk factors for prostate cancer are age, family history and race. Prostate cancer is more common in older men, especially in men over 65 years old. Men with a first degree relative (brother or father) with prostate cancer have over a two-fold increased risk of developing prostate cancer. Also, African Americans traditionally have higher rates of prostate cancer. Most patients with prostate cancer do not have any symptoms, though in advanced cases, prostate cancer can cause blood in the urine, urinary obstruction or bone pain. On the other hand, prostate enlargement (BPH) commonly shows symptoms, including increased urinary frequency both during the day and nighttime, straining to urinate, decreased force of urination and dribbling. The only clear risk

Q. A.

What are the screening recommendations by age? The optimum age to begin and end screening has not been established. We recommend that PSA screening be considered in men with risk factors for prostate cancer starting at age 40. For men without risk factors, we recommend screening be considered starting at age 55. After that, screening should be individualized to each patient. If significant [ more doctor page 13 ]

Are there any new treatments or new information about this concern that you’d want to share with readers? If so, what? In May of 2012, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommended against screening for prostate cancer using a blood test that measures prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, because it can identify cancers that are so slow growing that they might never be harmful. We, along with the American Urologic Association and many others, feel this recommendation does men a great disservice because not screening guarantees missing many dangerous cancers. It is true that PSA test is not a perfect test: there is no PSA level that guarantees the absence of cancer, and most men with an elevated PSA do not have cancer. However, PSA remains the only widely available test to help

identify men with prostate cancer before symptoms develop. We know that most cases of prostate cancer are not fatal. We are increasingly able to determine which men should be treated aggressively, and which can be closely observed in order to safely avoid any negative effects of treatment. It is always worthwhile to consult a urologist, who can evaluate your particular situation.

As a urologist, what is the biggest health concern for men? Why? Men are most often concerned with prostate health. Prostate disease, specifically prostate cancer and prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), are such common conditions that most men are either personally affected, or know men close to them who are. Despite this, the prostate remains largely a mystery to most people. Until they come face to face with the anatomy diagrams in the exam room of a urologist, the majority of patients

do not know where the prostate is located or what its normal function is.

assurance that medical and mental health care providers are trained to screen children for suicide and mental health risk factors and able to connect youth to resources or treatment. “Suicide is everyone’s business,” said Victoria Wagner, executive director of the Youth Suicide Prevention Program, a statewide nonprofit organization based in King County. State leaders have listened. Gov. Jay Inslee is expected to sign House Bill 2315, which calls for expanding the state’s capacity to help suicidal persons and save lives. The new law would extend suicide risk assessment, management and treatment training requirements to doctors and nurses working in primary care settings. It also calls for Washington’s Department of Health to develop a state plan to reduce lives lost to suicide across age groups. Rep. Tina Orwall, D-Des Moines (33rd Legislative District), a leader in the suicide-prevention movement, is the prime sponsor of the legislation. Orwall stepped in to do more for suicide prevention after a University of Washington professor whose husband had committed suicide approached her. “I knew there was more we could be doing,” Orwall said. The UW has since become a partner with Orwall in her mission. Washington has become a national leader in requiring suicide prevention training for its medical professionals and providers. But much more work needs to be done, especially with other high-risk groups, like college students. “Early intervention is highly effective,” Orwall said. “Unfortunately, Washington has a 50-percent higher suicide rate than the national average . . . and we’ve stepped to the forefront (of the problem).”

This week we are debuting a new feature, called “Ask a Doctor,” provided by Valley Medical Center. This week, Dr. Daniel Simon, urologist, answers some common questions.

Residents complain of ‘false choice’ on PSE’s Energize plans By Brian Beckley

Residents from Renton and beyond on Monday took advantage of representatives from Puget Sound Energy attending the City Council meeting to speak out on their opposition to the energy purveyor’s “Energize Eastside” plan. PSE officials were on hand to present a presentation on the plan, which will replace the current transmission lines between Renton and Sammamish with new, higher-capacity lines. According to Andy Wappler, vice president of corporate affairs, the power supply on the Eastside has not been upgraded since the 1960s and will no longer meet the needs of residents and businesses by 2018. Wappler said PSE expects Renton to add 5,000 jobs and 8,800 residents before 2016, based on the city’s 2012 economic forecast. Using Puget Sound Regional Council numbers, Wappler said the population of Renton is expected to grow 36 percent by 2035 and jobs will increase by 39 percent. To meet the growing need, the company says it needs to replace the 18 miles of 115 kilovolt transmission lines that run up the Eastside to 230 kV lines. Without the upgrade, Wappler said, PSE is not confident it can supply the full amount of power residents and businesses in the area will need. Wappler said PSE has proposed a series of possible paths stretching between its Talbot Hill and Sammamish substations (the Sammamish Station is actually in Redmond), but does not have a preferred route among the group. For Renton, there are two possible routes through the city. The first path, known as the “M Route,” runs approximately parallel to Monroe Avenue Northeast on an existing right-ofway that houses the current lines. The second path, the “L Route” runs past Gene Coulon Park and along the lake shore before veering east again just south of Interstate 90 and runs primarily through the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad right-of way, an easement to which PSE purchased in 2010. Both options would utilize above-ground transmission lines. Wappler said placing the lines underground increases

construction costs from $3 million - $4 million per mile to $20 million to $28 million per mile. And because the decision to go underground we be an aesthetic choice made by the community, under Washington state law, the additional costs would be borne by the community. Following their presentation, Councilman Randy Corman asked why the company couldn’t run a line down the Interstate 90 corridor from its Issaquah transmission line and avoid Renton entirely, considering much of the growth on the Eastside is from Bellevue to points north. Wappler said such a move would mean there were no redundancies for Renton and would leave the city vulnerable in the near future. “Yes, the capacity may be there today, but it won’t last for long,” Wappler said. Representatives for the company stayed for the audience comment portion of the meeting and got an earful from residents in attendance, with many applauding Corman’s suggestion and saying neither choice is acceptable. Almost to a person, speakers said the “L” route, along the lake, would be particularly unacceptable to residents. “There is another solution,” said Sally McCray, who lives along the “L” line. “Force PSE to go back to the drawing board,” said Paul Ouelette. Residents also made it clear they would like to see the lines go underground, stating that because underground wires are more reliable, the additional costs could be borne by all PSE customers, not just those in the cities that want the lines underground. In a phone interview on Tuesday, Wappler addressed both Corman’s suggestion and undergrounding. Wappler said though the map showing growth in power demands does show a larger increase in usage to the north of I-90, a large section of Renton also shows increased need for power, especially the areas on either side of state Route 900, including North Renton, the Highlands and the Kennydale neighborhoods. “The use in Renton, particularly on either side of SR900, is one of the areas of heaviest energy use,” Wappler said, adding

PSE’s future growth map showing demand for power. Courtesy IMage that he means that not only in the future but in the “present tense.” Wappler said the substation that serves Renton, located on Talbot Hill, is already nearing or over capacity on highdemand days. “This is a Renton issue that requires a Renton solution,” he said. “Building a system that only serves the north would provide no relief to that substation that serves Renton.” As for putting the wires underground, Wappler said that would be a “major construction project” that could disturb much more land for a longer period of time than aboveground wires. He also said that while putting wires underground means fewer (but potentially longer) outages, under current regulations, the reliability issue is secondary to the aesthetic benefits and therefore the communities that choose to place wires underground would be responsible to pay. In the end, even after the public process, which is expected to last through all of 2014, the decision of where to put the wires falls squarely with PSE. Corman also reminded the crowd on Monday that while he and his fellow councilmembers may be able to use the “bully pulpit” to attempt to sway the company one way of the other, “the fact is it’s not our jurisdiction.” For more information on the project, visit

Second man charged in Lake Desire murder

ers, the steady, consistent rain works the opposite on hillsides, allowing the water to seep in, weakening the soil and reducing the stability of the hill. “These are the type of conditions where you can get saturation of steep banks,” he said. “We also know that events can happen several days after the rainfall has stopped.” Zimmerman said his crews are making “daily reconnaissance” of danger areas for the “telltale signs” of problems, such as land creaking and settling or trees that have shifted or are leaning. Should the signs be found, Zimmerman said a geotechnical engineer would be brought in to assess the problem. So far, Renton hills show no signs of weakness, but the public works crews are staying vigilant. “We’re keeping our eyes on it,” Zimmerman said.


A second man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death Feb. 17 of a Renton man shot numerous times during a burglary of his Lake Desire home. Ryan Daniel Erker, 34, of Gig Harbor was charged March 21 with second-degree murder in the death Ryan Prince, 27, and with second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. Prince was shot to death when he came home at about 8 p.m. Feb. 17 as the house was being burglarized on East Lake Desire Drive. Before the burglary, Erker compiled an intelligence report on one of Prince’s roommates, the owner of several medicalmarijuana dispensaries, according to court documents. It was believed the dispensary owner kept cash in the house. Erker was arrested on March 20 while being interviewed by a King County Sheriff ’s Office

detective at the Major Crimes Unit in Kent. Erker is being held on $1 million in the King County Jail; his arraignment is 9 a.m. April 3 at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. Sheriff ’s investigators have been looking for additional suspects in what’s described as a “brutal murder” since the arrest Feb. 22 of Steven M. Marshall of Tacoma. Marshall and Erker are charged with the same crimes. Marshall pleaded not guilty at his arraignment. Erker was interviewed as investigators developed a case against Marshall; detectives had spotted the two men talking on Feb. 22 in Tacoma. Prosecutors write in charging documents that Erker helped plan the burglary that led to Prince’s murder by spending hours in the Lake Desire neighborhood, watching Prince’s home. During several days, he watched as residents of

the home came and went, to learn their habits and recognize their vehicles, according to prosecutors. Erker made cell phones calls that used cell towers serving the Lake Desire area, according to prosecutors. Marshall also visited the Lake Desire area before Feb. 17, cell-phone records show. On the night of the burglary, Erker’s job was to act as a lookout, according to prosecutors. Erker told investigators that three people were involved in the burglary, including Marshall. Erker texted a friend

on Feb. 24, telling him to search online using the phrase, “lake desire Renton,” to which the friend replied, “but u was there,” according to charging documents. Erker replied that he wasn’t at the house and told the friend to stop texting him on this phone because the police are going to “take it.” Marshall also called Erker at about the time of the burglary and Prince’s death, according to charging documents. Erker told investigators he was promised 10 percent of the take from the burglary.

Erker also lied to investigators, according to prosecutors, and tried to either conceal or destroy evidence, including the PT Cruiser used as a getaway vehicle. A friend provided a false alibi for him. Prince had taken a photo of the PT Cruiser’s license plate that helped lead to Marshall. Erker told investigators that Marshall admitted to him that he and his crew then attacked and shot Prince. Erker has a conviction for negligent driving, according to prosecutors.

Sandel DeMastus left her mark on Renton as volunteer

Sandel DeMastus was one of those rare individuals with a knack for getting things done. That boundless energy was still put to use after she was diagnosed with colon cancer and even after the arduous treatment began. Sandel, 68, died on Feb. 27, 2014, after moving in a few weeks earlier with her niece Jessica Wirkkala in LaCenter. Her family was with her then and on April 6 the Renton community will have its chance to remember Sandel and her contributions to her city. A Celebration of Life is planned for Sandel from 3-5 p.m. Sunday, April 6, at the Renton Highlands Community Center, 800 Edmonds Ave. N.E. The celebration is a potluck, so bring your favorite “comfort food.” Sandel’s fingerprints are all over Renton. And her hands helped tie the city together. Sandel spent a quarter century volunteering in Renton. “Anyone who knew Sandel knows that she loved her community,” said Norma McQuiller, supervisor of the City Renton’s Neighborhood Program, who has known Sandel for 13 years and worked on projects with her in the Highlands. “She was an advocate for our low-income citizens, for the

Sandel DeMastus, at left, front row, was part of a neighborhood effort in the Highlands in 2003 to place the Highlands entrance sign on Northeast Third Street, across from Renton Technical College. The project was funded with a City of Renton Neighborhood Program grant. Also part of the project were, back row, from left, Rick Fisher, Michael O’Halloran, Kathy Corman, Marty McCombs, Randy Corman, Doug Kyes, Norma McQuiller, and front row, next to Sandel, Mary Fisher and Marie West-Johnson. City of Renton

disadvantaged and for seniors, to name just a few of the many causes that she embraced,” she said. Sandel was probably the Renton Highlands’ biggest fan, watching over her neighborhood, missing little that happened – good and bad – and getting on the phone to keep everyone informed. She was president and vice president of the Highlands Community Association, which 10 years ago fought even the suggestion that government use its powers of condemnation to redevelop

her neighborhood. That redevelopment is now happening, as a partnership of the City of Renton, the King County Housing Authority, the King County Library System and the neighborhood. Before she left for LaCenter, Sandel said she “especially liked to help older people.” And she did, serving in leadership positions, including president, in the Renton AARP 414, bringing key community leaders to speak before her group. In 2011 she told her story to the AARP

Bulletin, helping to shed light on how the federal deficit threatened home-care hours for those on Medicaid. She also served on numerous community committees, including the Human Rights Commission and the Renton Highlands Task Force. For many years she served on the board of Children of Chernobyl Northwest Fund. Her volunteering goes back a long time. In 1994, she was named the “volunteer of the year” by the Tacoma Visitor and Convention Bureau for giving 400 hours of community service in a year’s time. And Sandel told the Highlands’ story on public-access Channel 77 with the “Sandel Show.” In her filmed tribute to the Renton Fire Department in 2005, she followed one day in the life of a firefighter. Her friends were numerous and they stretched up and down the West Coast. She met the Monkees, a pop-singing group famous in the late 60s, and their songwriter, Bobby Hart, while working for Seattle radio stations KOL and KJR. She helped the Monkees with promotion and marketing whenever they played in Seattle. Sandra Jean DeMastus of Renton was born in Kirkland, where she spent most of her childhood. She graduated from Sammamish High School and studied journalism at Bellevue Community

Sandel DeMastus helped mark Renton AARP 414 mark 38th anniversary. Submitted College. She is survived by her niece Jessica Wirkkala, whom Sandel thought of as a daughter; her son Phillip Becker; her sisters Patricia Miran of Waverly, N.Y., and Beverly Annette Hancock of Vancouver, and four grandchildren. Sandel loved to garden at her Highlands home, sharing her bounty with friends, neighbors and the food bank. “Sandel always gave more than she received and that is exactly who she was,” McQuiller said.

Renton residents among those caught in tax-fraud scams believed to be linked to Seattle Archdiocese issues diocese of Seattle, which covers Western Washington, have been victims of tax-identity fraud, which is national in scope, according to Greg Magnoni, an archdiocese spokesman. The data breach was discovered in early March. The investigation is continuing, but investigators don’t know the source of the problem, nor whether the personal information came from a database, he said. “As a result, we cannot say whether the source originated from systems within the archdiocese — including parishes and schools — or systems of vendors or another outside source,” Magnoni said. In a letter last week, Seattle Archbishop J. Peter Sartain assured the 600,000 or so parishioners in Western Washington that the archdiocese “will get to the bottom of this matter.” “We all hear about this kind of scam, and we hope that it will never touch us personally,” Sartain wrote in the letter. “Now that it has, I want you to know of my

What to do: Archbishop Sartain offered the following advice: • Check the Archdiodese website for updates at; click on IRS TAX FRAUD INFORMATION • Call the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 1-800-908-4490, Ext. 245, for assistance. • Actual victims of tax-identity theft, should: – Contact an IRS Special Agent at 206-464-4920 – file a report with local law enforcement – Send an email to, confirming that your tax identity has been compromised. Include full name, parish or school and whether you are an employee or volunteer. The Internal Revenue Service has extensive information about identity theft on its website, Search under data breach and under identity theft. The latter search will yield information about what to do if you suspect your personal information has been stolen. care and concern.” The IRS is presenting six regional gatherings throughout the Archdiocese of Seattle to provide information about tax-identity fraud, led by Kenneth Hines, IRS Special Agent in Charge of the Seattle Field Office. The meeting closest to Renton was Tuesday in Bellevue, which was attended by about 400 people.

“There were some people that when they asked questions you could tell from their voice that they’re hurting and unhappy but overall the people were grateful,” said Jonathan Tassan, parish administrator. “Someone even commented that it was good to just gather with other people who were also victimized and commiserate with one another,” he said.

There’s also a meeting in Olympia, 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Monday at St. Michael, 1208 11th Ave. S.E., Olympia. Contact Dean. A. Radford at

Two Hazen High School students are competing in the Washington Aerospace Scholars program this spring and hoping for a chance to work on hands-on learning tools developed by NASA and the University of Washington. Constance La and Andrew Tran have been participating in Phase One, an online distance-learning curriculum developed by the two institutions, with about 300 other high school juniors across the state. The program emphasizes science, technology, engineering and math and encourages students to pursue careers in those areas. Math and science are favorite subjects for both La and Tran, who are both eager to be selected for Phase Two of the program. Phase One covers the history and future of space exploration, space environment around Earth, its control by solar activity and potential opportunities for the exploration of the solar system. “I’m just excited to participate in this program and I’m hoping to get into Phase Two because that sounds a lot more fun that what we’re doing right now,” said Tran. Every two weeks, La and Tran turn in assignments based on readings, math problems and essays related to the course work. Topics include designing missions and traveling to the moon, sun spots and engineering concepts. “I like math and science and technology like STEM,” said La. “I think that’s why I was interested in this.”

Hazen students Andrew Tran and Constance La. tracey compton, Renton Reporter

The Museum of Flight hosts the six-day summer residency experience that is Phase Two. Up to 160 students are chosen for the second phase of the program based on their academic performance in Phase One. Engineers and educators guide the students’ experience in Phase Two, as they design a human mission to Mars, tour engineering facilities and get briefings from experts in the field. “To me, it’s not hard,” said Tran. “It’s just a lot of work because it’s just a lot of reading every two weeks and a long essay every two weeks.” Tran wants to study electrical engineering and computer science in college and pursue a career in the computer and technology field. La is also interested in pursuing computer science and engineering, but is also curious about the medical field. “I’m just excited to see if I get into Phase Two; it’s more hands-on than this right now,” said La. Students will learn in May if they have been invited to continue in Phase Two.

Men’s health questions answered

March 28, 2014 [13] [ doctor from page 5] risk factors such as a strong family history, African American race or an abnormal baseline PSA are present, then screening should be considered on a regular basis after that. In general, we believe that prostate cancer screening should end at age 70, or earlier, in cases where life expectancy is less

than 10 years.


What message would you want to send the women who are reading this about the health of the men in their lives? Without generalizing too much, women tend to be more proactive about their health and screening, while


men can stick their head in the sand, only to emerge once symptoms drive them to the doctors office. It is natural for men to have concerns about screening. I encourage women to open a dialogue with the men in their lives about screening, and to help them seek the answers to allow them to make the most educated and informed decisions about their health.

Teen, step-father argue over grades The following was compiled from Renton Police Department case reports. By DEAN A. RADFORD

An argument over an 18-year-old’s grades ended up with a wrestling match in the mud outside and a trip to jail for the student. The Renton man and his step-father got into an argument on March 16, which started with yelling, calls to “back off ” and then the teen getting pulled from the house. When an officer arrived, the step-father released his hold on the teenager, who had gotten defensive when discussing his grades with his mother. The mother told officers her son yelled at her and grabbed her wrists, aggravating an existing injury. At that point the step-father

pulled the teen from the house. The high school student had punched him several times. The 18-year-old was booked into the SCORE regional jail for investigation of fourth-degree assault, domestic violence. His mother and step-father won’t assist with prosecution.

Profane rant, disobeying officer at transit station A man in is 40s with no known address was taken into custody March 15 for yelling profanities at bus passengers at the Metro Transit Center and disobeying a police officer. The situation got so out-of-hand that passersby were having to push the man away from them. He was throwing potatoes all over the transit center in downtown Renton. The officer, who was alone, asked the man to sit down. He refused, so the officer lightly pushed him so he would sit down on the bench.

But he stood up quickly and the officer went through a similar routine. He stood up and squared off with the officer. The officer then took him to the ground and handcuffed him. The man, who was seen drinking straight from a fifth of vodka, was arrested for unlawful conduct in a transit station and obstructing a law-enforcement officer. He was booked into the SCORE regional jail, where he was physically aggressive and tried to spit on jailers.

Suspicious call possibly scam to get information A Renton woman got a call from someone claiming to be from the state Attorney General’s Office with news her employer had filed a lawsuit or a complaint against her. The state “investigator” was sending someone to arrest her in a few hours. The investigator didn’t offer her any details but gave the victim the phone number of an attorney who could provide more information. The victim Googled the number and discovered that it was an attempt to collect

personal information from a cell phone. The actual Attorney General’s Office told the Renton woman to report the incident to her local police department. An officer called the number and got a voice message that the magicJack customer wasn’t available.

Store clerk would have to call daily about fake bills The store clerk had a quick answer for the officer’s question: If I called 911 every time I got a fake bill, I’d be calling two or three times a day. The officer was at the store on South Grady Way March 13 for a follow-up on another counterfeit case. The clerk told the officer a regular customer gave him two fake $20 bills along with two real $20 bills. The clerk new the bill was fake and said so and said he would call the police. The customer said “never mind” and walked out. The incident was caught on the store’s security cameras. The clerk told the officer the store gets a lot of fake $10 and $20 bills and he usually just tears them up and throws them away.

Hazen soccer starts season with three road games By Brian Beckley

The Hazen Highlanders boys soccer team is off to a 2-1 overall start this season and on Tuesday opened their Seamount League schedule with a 4-0 win over Evergreen. All three of the defending Seamount League champs’ games so far this season have been on the road. Hazen got goals from sophomore midfielder Logan Dickman, junior mid Nick Smith, senior mid Isaiah

Blount and senior mid and captain Luis Puga. Sophomore Reyes Garcia had two assists and junior Jorman Gonzales and Puga each added assists of their own. Goalie Jamie “Chino” Martinez picked up the shutout. “This was an odd game. I told the guys afterwards it wasn’t an ugly win – more just a frustrating one. Part of that was so many fouls (28, evenly distributed between the teams) being called that stopped the flow of game. The rest of it was Evergreen’s style of play,” Matthews

added. Hazen opened their season March 20 with a 1-0 win over Newport, a non-conference opponent. Hazen scored nine minutes into the game and held on for the win. Senior Ryan Wong picked up the goal off an assist from Gonzales. On Saturday, the Highlanders made their way to Bellevue to take on the Interlake Saints in a nonconference game. The two teams battled to a scoreless tie at the half, but Interlake was able to put two goals into the net in the five-minute span in the middle

of the second half and then hang on for a 2-0 win. “Okay, I admit I’m stubborn in scheduling Newport and Interlake. While I want to win every game, I also want our guys to see what it takes to get to The Dance (State Tournament),” said Matthews. “Even for me this is a stretch, but we lose to Interlake in 2012 and 2013 and what’s the final result? We are Seamount League Champions and get to The Dance.” Hazen takes on Renton tonight, Friday, at 7 p.m. at Renton Memorial Stadium.

Contact and submissions: Brian Beckley or 425.255.3484, ext. 5050

After completing last year’s campaign with a perfect 13-0 record, the Hazen girls tennis team is bringing back a lot of talent and hopes of a repeat performance. Coach Gail Ellis, who has been with the team for 25 years, 24 as head coach, says her team has a lot of experience coming in to this season. Among the returning players are seniors Ashley Hwang, Katherine Eng, Arden Phu, Kitty Ling, and Naima Shaltu. Juniors Elise Wong, Catherine Lin, Kristy Huynh, Amy Huynh and MinhThu Nguyen. She also said she has a few key newcomers to the squad, including juniors Lillian Ma and Gabbie Solis-Lazenby, sophomore Kelly Lo and freshman Misa Takami, whom she listed as a player to watch. Hazen opened its 2014 campaign this past Friday with a 7-0 victory over Evergreen. Freshman Takami started in the first singles spot, gutting her way to a 7-5, 4-6, 16-14 win, while Wong cruised to a 6-0, 6-0 victory in second singles. In third singles, Hwang easily bested her opponent 6-2, 6-2 and Ling completed the singles sweep with a 6-0, 7-5 win. In doubles play, the team of Solis-Lazenby and Amy Huynh won their first doubles match 6-2, 6-2 while Lin and Krity Nuynh won 6-0, 6-1 and the team of Eng and Phu rolled to a 6-0, 6-2 win. Hazen was scheduled to play Renton at home on Wednesday and will travel to Highline today, Friday, weather permitting.


Hazen select team wins state title The Hazen Select girls basketball team, made up of seventh-graders, this month won the state championship in Spokane. According to coach Jeff Solam, the team has won three league championships and several other tournaments over the past few seasons and on March 16 won the state title.

Flea Market

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. WeightsMeasures/Fire woodinformation.aspx

Sea Gals to hold open auditions beginning in April The Sea Gals will hold open auditions for the 2014 squad on Saturday, April 26 at Virginia Mason Athletic Center (VMAC) in Renton, the team announced recently. Members from last season’s squad made several national TV promotional appearances before performing on the sideline at Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium. The tryouts will be comprised of four competition rounds. The preliminary competition includes a one minute freestyle dance to music provided by the Seahawks. Contestants will be judged in three categories: dance ability, pizzazz and physical appearance. The auditions begin on Saturday, April 26 with the final competition and live webcast at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 4. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have obtained a high school diploma or equivalent by Aug. 31, 2014. The 2014 squad will consist of 24 - 32 members. Four workshops will be held to help prepare applicants for the competition. The workshops will consist of instruction on dance steps, a sample dance routine, and a Q&A session about the audition process. They will be held at local Gold’s Gyms and cost $30 per session. Sea Gals Director Sherri Thompson and Sea Gals Choreographer Shannon Kingsley will teach the classes. It is advisable, but not necessary, to attend any of the workshops in order to audition. “The workshops are designed to prepare

applicants in all three areas of judging, including dance ability, pizzazz and physical appearance,” said Sea Gals director Sherri Thompson. “Applicants can attend one or more sessions to prepare and build their confidence for the competition.” The Sea Gals balance a busy schedule of practicing, performing and making over 300 public appearances in the community throughout the year. The squad has also traveled to Hawaii, Japan, China, Mexico, and Europe to perform. For more information on the Sea Gals, workshops and auditions, visit www. Open workshops are scheduled for: • 3 to 4:30 p.m., March 22 at Gold’s Gym, Redmond, 7956 178th Pl. N.E.; • 3 to 4:30 p.m., March 23 at Gold’s Gym, Issaquah, 1025 N.W.
