School board member Moore faces jury Trial runs this week for Moore, accused of felony theft; verdict was in the hands of jury as of press time BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ



UW News Lab

On March 22, all eyes were on Washington state. As the single deadliest landslide in U.S. history tore through the town of Oso, destroying homes and taking lives, the rest of America watched in horror. “To think of people who were on their way to work, or Tricia Ackerman taking care of their children or grandchildren, they’re not here anymore,” said Tricia Ackerman, a Federal Way resident. “It’s very, very sad, it truly makes your heart hurt.” But Ackerman, a Keller Williams realtor and lifelong volunteer, decided to take action. With the assistance of nine Keller Williams offices from Olympia to Bellingham, Ackerman has organized a two-day fundraiser on April 26 and 27 to collect donations for mudslide victims and volunteers. “I think that people who live in this state, particularly, have really been affected by the outpouring of ‘What can we do?’”

Decatur senior Dom Cooks passes away from brain cancer

Decatur High School senior Dom Cooks, who has been battling an inoperable brain tumor for two [ more OSO, page 3 ] years, passed away Tuesday night at St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way.

ormer Federal Way school board president Tony Moore — accused of scheming with a tire company employee in Oregon to steal more than $150,000 in semi-truck tires in 2011 — faced a jury in a courtroom that emitted a rubber odor on Monday at the Multnomah County Courthouse in Portland, Ore. Moore sat at a table behind six large semi-truck tires that both the defense and prosecutor staged to illustrate the tires referenced in the case, while his wife Trisa and his sister sat on a bench behind him. But before the attorneys presented their opening arguments, the trial began with a back-and-forth over whether two phone calls between Moore and his alleged co-conspirator would be admissible. During the phone call, which the Multnomah County Sheriff ’s Office recorded without Moore’s consent, Tracy E. Holmquist told Moore the police were on to them and asked the then-school board president what they should do. Moore instructed Holmquist to tell police that some large cash deposits they found that were made to Holmquist’s bank account were a result of selling cookies on eBay, amongst a host of other alleged concoctions that Dennis Shen, Multomah County deputy district attorney, would later describe during his opening argument. Moore’s attorney Robert Callahan asked Judge Thomas M. Ryan to dismiss the case based on the phone calls, which he referred to as “outrageous government conduct.” He noted that while Oregon is a one-party consent state to phone recordings, in Washington all parties must give consent. Ryan denied the motion. But Callahan later told the jury that there are two sides to every story — including the phone calls. During the prosecutor’s opening argument, Shen

His condition had been worsening in recent days and Cooks had been in a coma since last weekend, said David Brower, Decatur principal. “Our hearts are heavy as we mourn his passing,” he said. “But

our spirits are lifted as we reflect on the way he has inspired us and thousands across the nation. Dom taught us that tomorrow is not a promise and to embrace each day. Dom’s family has asked for privacy during this time. I ask that you keep Dom and his family in your thoughts and prayers.” Decatur has set up posters around the school’s campus for

staff and students to share their thoughts. Cooks got to live out numerous dreams during his senior year at Decatur. Decatur students appointed him as an Associated Student Body (ASB) officer and named him homecoming king in the fall.

described Moore’s business relationship with GCR Tire Centers in Portland. Moore is owner of William A. Moore Jr. Inc., a familyowned tire wholesaler based in Federal Way. He salvaged used tires from the store’s junk pile and would retread the tires for his business. Shen said Moore approached a company official in 2011 and asked if he could look through the company’s pile of unusable junk tires that did not meet GCR’s standards. The official told Moore he was welcome to take tires for free that the company would not use, as long as he did so under the direction of Holmquist, the company’s yard manager. “You’ve got to work through him, and only him, get his approval to remove those tires and don’t take advantage of the situation … ,” Shen said. “So the business relationship continued; he (Moore) sold tires, he bought a few tires, he took some tires. If that’s all that happened and it all went correctly, we wouldn’t be here today.” Holmquist was later convicted on seven charges of aggravated theft and recently served 19 months in prison.

As of the Mirror’s press deadline on Thursday evening, the jury got their instructions and will be deliberating on Friday. The Mirror will post the outcome of the trial at

phone calls that made GCR officials suspect the alleged theft. One of GCR’s big customers Interstate Distributor Co. (IDC) stored its semi-truck tires at GCR’s Oregon plant “under lock and key,” Shen said. But when IDC officials asked for an inventory check of its tires, a GCR official “went out into the yard and looked around and he knew where the tires were kept and to his amazement, instead of seeing a vehicle with thousands of anticipated tires, he saw about 200 — a huge decrease in the amount of IDC tires they should have,” Shen noted. But GCR later got a “lucky break,” Shen said. While officials were figuring out the alleged theft, company sales representative Thomas Lalonde discovered six tires that didn’t belong in a tire shop in Phoenix, Oreg. Lalonde told detectives that these were GCR tires with a proprietary tread design that were used for test purposes only. “It was not to be sold anywhere and he knew that they resided at GCR and were supposed to be at GCR,” Shen added. He said at that point, GCR officials made the connection between Holmquist and Moore. Holmquist, who initially denied his involvement, later told police that in March of 2011, Moore approached him in the tire yard at GCR and asked him if he wanted to make some extra money, Shen said. “So the pattern of deception began in March of 2011,” Shen said. Holmquist allegedly allowed Moore access to newer tires outside of the junk pile between March and October 2011. Holmquist would “roll tires and stage them, and load them into (Moore’s) trailer, who would then drive away …,” Shen said, noting the tires were inventory and not junk. “It was stuff that they would sell on their own or make it into retreads and sell for a lot of money.” He noted that after Moore allegedly sold the tires, he deposited cash into Holmquist’s bank account. “This happened over, and over, and over and over and over — dozens of times it happened,” Shen said.

Holmquist later agreed to cooperate with police and on Oct. 27, 2011 he made the first of two recorded phone calls to Moore. During the recorded conversation, Holmquist told Moore that the police were investigating the case and they had to get their story straight. “And you’re going to hear this in its entirety and it’s very clear,” Shen told the jury about the recordings. “These are going to by crystal clear and not subject to interpretation.” During the conversation, Moore told Holmquist, “Just tell them you sold me a TV for $3,100,” Shen said, noting Moore’s version of what happened “continued to morph many times.” Moore then told Holmquist to tell police that he sold the TV for $6,700, “then it was, just tell the cops you got divorced, you got your ring back, it was a $9,000 ring, you sold it to me and I gave it to my wife. The value of the ring would change,” Shen said. Moore also told Holmquist that there was no way police could trace the cash deposits that Moore allegedly made from Federal Way to Holmquist’s bank account. Shen said Moore then abandoned his previous stories. “He (Moore) said tell the police that you were getting rid of a lot of stuff on eBay, that he (Holmquist) and his girlfriend had been selling cookies on eBay … and he was selling a TV, a football, a sewing machine, his daughter’s bed and that he and his girlfriend are starting an eBay business and that explains all the deposits going into his account,” said Shen, noting that Holmquist didn’t have a girlfriend at the time and had never bought or sold anything on eBay. Moore also told Holmquist he didn’t “even have to tell them (police) the money came from me and he also told Tracy Holmquist not to get too detailed because the details are what will kill you,” Shen continued. During the second recorded phone call on Nov. 1, 2011, Holmquist told Moore that police knew about $10,000 in cash deposits to Holmquist’s bank account. “The defendant said he should tell police that he was selling stuff on eBay,” Shen said. “He assured Tracy Holmquist that the cops could not bankrupt him and … that he should tell them that he doesn’t know anything. All you want to say is, ‘hey, I don’t remember what you’re talking about.’ Well, we know he’s wrong about the bank records because we have them

and they show the defendant made the deposits into Tracy Holmquist’s account.” During Callahan’s opening argument, he spent considerable time speaking about the tire industry, the secondary market for low-cost tires and Moore’s tire business. “Many of these transactions in the secondary market are done in cash,” Callahan said. “You’ll hear from Delores Moore, Moore’s mother. You’ll hear that Mr. Moore is a third generation in his family tire business, that she (Delores) has worked for the entirety of the time since she married her husband as the bookkeeper. And she will tell you that nothing about this surprised her, that cash sales, cash reimbursement, cash happens all the time.” Callahan also said that when Moore first began working with Holmquist at GCR, that Moore wasn’t charged anything for salvaging the junk tires. “He believes that at some point, the people that worked there (GCR) saw that he was doing OK and so they started to charge him for the junk tires,” Callahan said. “They charged him $5 and then as things kept going they charged him a little more, they charged him $20.” Callahan said that Moore tried to pay Holmquist with a check once, but Holmquist told him the company wanted the money in cash. He said Moore knew that was the nature of the tire business. “It wasn’t his business to ask what was going on, he just had a request, he understood that (the company) had made that request to Tracy Holmquist and he did business with him,” Callahan said. He said the GCR official who initially noticed the tires were missing would often engage in conversation with Moore and Holmquist and watch them while they loaded the tires into Moore’s trailer. Moore took that as a sign that everything was “normal.” Callahan added that while this activity occurred, the GCR plant “was in total chaos” and junk tires were mixed in with the usable inventory. He also noted that Holmquist was addicted to heroin and methamphetamine during this time. Holmquist admitted to heroin use but denied using methamphetamine. “As this all boils down, it’s all going to come down to one person’s word against another person’s word,” Callahan told the jury, noting there are two sides to this story.

time at Saghalie Middle School and Decatur, before getting the dire diagnosis. But Cooks was able to get back on the football field one last time during the Gators’ homecoming game against Auburn Mountainview during the fall at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. Cooks scored a ceremonial touchdown just before halftime of the game. Cooks also had the honor of being a Decatur High School graduate. The school organized a special commencement ceremony in February. Cooks and his twin sister Diamond received their diplomas in front of a standing-room only crowd, which included a special appearance by Seattle Seahawks wide receiver and Super Bowl champion Doug Baldwin. “Dom has been and remains a visible force here at Decatur, known by nearly everyone,” Brower wrote. “He told me that he believed his purpose in life, which

[ OSO from page 1]

he discovered after being diagnosed with brain cancer, was to teach and inspire others. He has indeed done that.” “We will miss his daily words of wisdom that he shared over the announcements. And we will miss his positive attitude and his irrepressible wit. But he will always be in our hearts. He is a true Decatur Gator and it was a major part of his identity. Though we mourn today, we believe, as he always told us, ‘It is a great day to be a Gator.’” Ironically, on the day of his passing, Cooks officially finished up in third place in the 2014 Air National Guard USA TODAY High School Sports Inspiration contest, which concluded Tuesday morning. Cooks finished with a grand total of 214,260 votes during the final round, which included 10 student/athletes from across the nation. Aaron Gebhart from New Oxford, Penn., won with 335,765 votes.

she said. “We’re all people, we live on a planet, and I think it’s really important to take care of each other.” What started as a series of donation jars in her office and at the local 7-11, has turned into Ackerman’s vision for something much bigger. The nine offices will function as drop-off centers for two days and then a moving company will come to each site to pick up items such as duct tape, socks, heavy-duty garbage bags, five-gallon plastic buckets, gloves, non-perishable food items and cash donations or gift cards, which Ackerman herself will help drive to Oso. “I’m hoping that people will just come,“ she said. “And that they show their support like the people of Washington do.” The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26 and from 1-4 p.m. April 27. For those who cannot make it, donation items will be accepted beforehand at any of the participating Keller Williams offices: Federal Way, Bellingham, Olympia, Bothell, University Place, Marysville, Seattle, Burlington and Puyallup. Larry McDowell, a lender in Federal Way, has volunteered his barbecuing services, even putting together a menu for the event. “Any time that there is anybody in the

Cooks was awarded a berth into the final round after finishing in 11th place during the semifinal round of voting. But Cooks was awarded a berth into the top 10 after Nicholas Hibbeler gave up his spot. Hibbeler is a soccer player from Park Hill High School in Kansas City and finished in 10th place in the semifinal round. Hibbeler was diagnosed with testicular cancer in July and underwent surgery and six rounds of chemotherapy treatment while also playing high school soccer. It was the second time another student/athlete has thrown their support Cooks’s way. After the first round of voting, Luke Smorey asked his voters to back Cooks. Smorey attends Baldwin High School in Pittsburgh. “Although I am very thankful of everyone’s votes, I would like to ask for all of you to vote for a contestant who I have found much more inspirational than myself,” Smorey wrote in an email. “His name is Dominique Cooks. He was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor and only has a few weeks to live. I feel that someone like Dominique deserves this award much more than I do.”


Decatur will offer counseling for students, as needed, through the end of the school year, Brower said. Parents who need assistance can call their student’s advisor at (253) 945-5200.

community, whether it’s near or far, and they need help and I could do something to help them, if it’s time or money that I could provide, I will do that,” he said. “At this point, it’s time, and this is what I’m going to spend my time doing.” With the outpouring of support, Ackerman says she feels like this event is a true 12th Man effort, making a nod to Seahawks fans in the area. “To me it seems like that 12th Man is just who we are, that we can really step in and be a team all across Washington and be able to extend our arms around all the victims and families and volunteers that are going through what they are doing,” she said. “Washington is just really special that way.” And while support will be needed for Oso long after the two-day fundraiser, Ackerman hopes this is one step in the right direction. “This vision of mine was really just a seed that I planted in my mind,” Ackerman said. “I have no expectations, I don’t know what we will be able to get, how much we will be able to do, but whatever it is I will be most appreciative.”

rendan Eich, the man responsible for computer programming language Javascript and the Internet browser company Mozilla, was yet another victim of the “diversity and tolerance brigade,” well, intolerance, after Eich was forced to step down as CEO of the company he helped create earlier this month. His crime? Giving $1,000 to California’s Proposition 8 campaign in 2008, the citizenled initiative in that state, which wrote into the state constitution that marriage was to be defined as between a man and woman. The gay left and their allies in the tolerance and diversity brigade couldn’t countenance this though, and began an online firestorm of criticism calling for him to be fired or to step down as CEO. Eich finally conceded, and is in an apparent state of suspended animation as of this writing. Now, were there any allegations of discrimination against Eich? No. Was there ever any evidence or allegations that the corporate culture of Mozilla was discriminatory towards gay people? Nope. Instead, a man backed a political initiative he believed in, so apparently that makes him a hateful bigot who deserves to lose employment over his personal beliefs. Good times. Mozilla issued a wonderfully Orwellian response to the whole fracas, with executive chairwoman Mitchell Blake writing on Mozilla’s website: “Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard. “Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all. “We have employees with a wide diversity of views. Our culture of openness extends to encouraging staff and community to share their beliefs and opinions in public.” Just let that sink in for a moment. The Eich episode was strangely reminiscent of the 2012 episode involving Chick-fil-A president and Chief Operating Officer Dan Cathy daring to express, in public, that he feels marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman.

Metro has proven over and over they will deceive

City has opportunity to hire new creative staff With the announcement the city attorney is retiring, the exodus from Federal Way City Hall continues and provides Mayor Jim Ferrell with an opportunity to recruit his own team and start to shape the city’s future. With vacancies in the city attorney’s office, Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Economic Development departments and other key positions, Ferrell can bring new ideas and a renewed energy. That is not to say that the departing officials haven’t been significant contributors to the city’s growth, because they have. But they were all recruited to a city manager form of government and have been together for many years. They, along with some members of the City Council, have grown accustomed to doing things a certain way and don’t seem to recognize that the public voted to change to a strong mayor form of government. Ferrell himself is not particularly knowledgeable about how the new form is supposed to function. But that is why this opportunity is so important to his long-term success. Ferrell’s instincts are much more in tune with a strong executive than his predecessor. While he should not ignore talented candidates just because they come from a city manager form of government, special attention should be given to candidates who have experience in a strong mayor system. That is particularly true in the city attorney’s office. Because they interpret the law, the city attorney can have more influence on decisions in City Hall than anyone other than the mayor. Most mayors will tell you that their success is

partially in the hands of the city attorney, police chief and finance director. Ferrell has already filled two of the three with candidates, though skilled, who don’t have experience in a strong mayor system. If Ferrell can fill the remaining positions with staff more knowledgeable with the new system, they can help train not only Ferrell but the remaining staff. Why is this important? First, because the public made it important by voting to change the government. Secondly, some Council members and some staff do not want to change, despite the public vote. And lastly, the strong mayor system is more suited to the current mayor and the changing economic climate that will need more creative thinking and decision making. And think about what can be accomplished. We desperately need economic activity in our downtown core to go along with the planned park. But that’s not all we need. We need a central plaza, a parade route for events and downtown art, sculptures and murals. We need to move City Hall, the courts and the Police department downtown. Then we need to move the Historical Society downtown. We need summer concerts, with outdoor food vendors and a “stars walk of fame” for our historical contributors who have made a difference in the growth and maturation of Federal Way. We need a focus on making Federal Way a “kid friendly place,” a place with activities that cater to [ more ROEGNER, page 5 ] Bob Roegner

Many times in the past 14 years Metro came to the voters promising more service if you would just raise taxes. Instead, we have a trail of broken promises, the highest paid drivers in the country and repeated apologies for failing to keep routes open and fares down. The Seattle Times editorial board gave a surprising show of integrity when it came out against Propositioin 1. Recognizing the

repeated lies related to the string of broken promises dating back to 2000, 2006, 2008 and 2013, one newspaper said no. Instead of making Metro clean up its act, reduce unnecessary overhead and keep its promises, Proposition 1 includes a kickback to local municipalities in exchange for endorsements. For this kickback, many cities are willing to greedily encourage their residents to pay millions more than they will see services for.

In the case of Federal Way, your Council members opted to tax you over $5.75 million in return for a mere $2.3 million check, sucking more than $3.4 million out of you and sending it to Seattle. All of the propaganda for the measure says they “could” cut a few routes here and there, not that they would. Are you willing to increase your annual taxes, in a world where nearly every jurisdiction is adding new taxes and

increasing others, by an estimated $120 each year for the next 10 years? This is a vehicle tax, not a car tax. Reading the definition of a vehicle as cited on the ballot measure means cars, trucks of all sizes, motor homes, tandem axle travel, boat and utility trailers. Until Metro cuts waste, which their own facts say they have, I urge a responsible vote on Proposition 1. Vote no.

there was absolutely no evidence or allegations that Cathy’s belief was part of Chick-fil-A’s corporate culture, but that didn’t stop the tolerance and diversity brigade screaming bloody murder about it. Both the left and right coalesced around Chick-fil-A, with the left resorting to boycotts and the right showing their support by a Chick-fil-A Day, in which those who either agreed with Cathy, or agreed with the principle of Cathy having the right to express his belief, showed up in huge numbers across the country. Of course, the left essentially categorized that day as a chicken eating hate-fest, but what can you do? Closer to home, World Vision in Federal Way butted up against much the same crowd as Eich and Cathy, although the repercussions seem to be less severe so far for the wellknown Christian charity. After announcing they would hire Christians in same-sex marriages, the organization quickly reversed the decision after long-time supporters voiced their disapproval. As reported in the Mirror and elsewhere, the upper echelon of World Vision’s management team “sent a letter to supporters saying the board had made a mistake and was returning to its policy requiring celibacy outside of marriage and faithfulness within the Bible covenant of marriage between a man and a woman.” “We have listened to you and want to say thank you and to humbly ask for your forgiveness,” the agency said in the letter, signed by World Vision president Richard Stearns and board chairman Jim Bere. So evil and hateful, you guys. Regardless, the backlash, for whatever reason, hasn’t been as harsh for World Vision regarding this reversal, although readers of the Mirror and one columnist have done a bit of public shaming of them so far. It’s worth noting, again, that the side that prides itself and holds itself as superior for its “tolerance” and “diversity” appears to be fanatically intolerant of any dissent. Bill Maher, who’s been on the side of the tolerance and diversity brigade, perhaps summed this strange dynamic of deep intolerance from certain quarters in his comments on his show “Real Time.” “There is a gay mafia,” Maher said, “(and) if you cross them, you do get whacked.” Ain’t this modern society of ours grand?

children and families. We need additional neighborhood parks. We need new modern entryway signs that highlight the city we are and can become. And we should start with the sign at 320th. We need to think creatively about where mass transit will go when it gets here. How can we use this new asset to increase economic development, while making it convenient to the people who will actually use it by combining it with atgrade shops, restaurants and stores? This is a short list and more can be added. But we have missed too many opportunities and we can’t afford to miss any more. Think of the energy we can unleash! We have an active mayor, a form of government that can move quickly, an opportunity to hire the new creative staff, an economy on the rebound and a perfect geographic location. Now, do we have the leadership, vision and will to make it happen?

Olive Garden feeds homeless Homelessness is a problem in Federal Way that many people do not see, or maybe they do and just look the other way. But not Reach Out or the Olive Garden. Reach Out is a program that not only feeds, but houses 25-30 homeless men and women of Federal Way October through April each year. During the winter and spring, Olive Garden has stepped in, along with many volunteers and kept food on the tables. Several churches in the area have taken turns housing these men and women. Hopefully in the near future there will be a hub acquired, giving one central place for our community to serve and be served. Until then, thank you to all those who make this beautiful outreach ministry work.

School graduation rate is symptom of parental negativity T their children will do the same. Children tend to repeat or value most what they hear and see at home. If you openly state disdain for their teachers or the schools they attend when you disagree with the way what is being taught or what is asked of you, your negativity may be part of the problem. Apathy toward your child’s education is even worse. If your children do not instantly earn straight “A’s,” is it the school’s failure or a call to action for parents to spend more time understanding the challenges their children may be having with the learning process? As a parent, how do you supKeith Livingston


he open undercurrent of disdain from some in the community for the Federal Way Public Schools system intrigues me. I know there are people who feel positively about the district’s potential, but there seems to be a history of failed funding initiatives and animosity of blaming the board, administration or teachers for the district’s lack of success. I contend that education success starts in the home with a positive attitude. Our Esmeraldas and Jacobs are likely to be little “mini-me’s” when they attend school. If parents see the world through a negative lens, it is likely

port education? Do you encourage your children to read? Are you a reader? Do you make sure their homework is done? Have you prioritized your children’s activities to be education or entertainment centered? Nationwide, according to the U.S. Census, 86 percent of our adult population has a high school degree. Ninety percent of Washington state’s adult population has a high school degree and Federal Way’s adult population is at 89 percent. In 2013, Federal Way’s high school graduation rate was 73.4 percent. I believe the district’s dropout rate and lowerthan-expected recent graduation numbers are a symptom of the community’s undercurrent of

negativity. As parents, are we calling the kettle black when we have not looked at ourselves first? Are we setting a good example by reading and sharing words on a page? I cannot find reading statistics for Federal Way adults, but the website offers a broader national insight into the reading challenge. The site states that 33 percent of U.S. high school graduates never read a book after high school and that 42 percent of college students will never read a book after they graduate. Blaming is always the easiest behavioral route for any problem we encounter. So, school district, please accept that in my eyes, (point of view of some parents), you are a

failure because you did not properly educate my child with my values. My child should have graduated at the top of the class but finished at the bottom of the pack with an uncertain future. I trusted you to overcome my shortcomings and prepare my child for a better future. Now what? The public schools in this country since their inception have undergone scrutiny, scorn and praise But, they consistently produce our nation’s leaders, scientists, doctors, nurses, engineers, artists, authors, homemakers, entrepreneurs, factory workers, farmers and in general educate our future. The intellectual brightness and potential of children from one district to another is not significantly

different but success rates often are. Federal Way schools are graduating students who go onto college or into careers where they are excelling. As parents and community residents, we need to be stewards of our destiny and that starts with education and setting the example in our homes for valuing education, reading, math, science, curiosity, art, dialogue and the pursuit of knowledge. Quality schools start with the behavior of parents and what you choose to do in setting a positive example.

Federal Way resident Keith Livingston: keithlivingstondesign@

Q&A with Mr. FW: Keep your bong at home, but not your kids Q: Mr. Federal Way, I saw someone in the parking lot of a popular restaurant in our city smoking a bong pipe. Is this allowed in Federal Way? Do you care to comment? A: Mr. Federal Way would love to comment, thanks for asking. Despite Washington voters legalizing marijuana last year, it’s still illegal to smoke a bong pipe in a public place, even if it’s a popular restaurant in Federal Way. The marijuana laws in Washington are pretty similar to the alcohol laws when it comes to consuming in public. Unlike Las Vegas, you

can’t walk down the streets of Federal Way with an open Bud Light. It’s the same thing with a bong or joint. It’s illegal to be in public smoking a doobie. The police department looks down on this and can issue a ticket to marijuana smokers. Initiative 502 was approved in November 2012 and defined and legalized small amounts of marijuanarelated products for adults 21 and over. The measure taxes marijuana-related products and designates the revenue for healthcare and substance-abuse prevention and education.

Federal Way city attorney announces retirement FROM STAFF REPORTS

Federal Way’s City Attorney Patricia “Pat” Richardson announced her retirement on Wednesday, after 15 years of service to the city. Brian Wilson, Mayor Jim Ferrell’s chief of staff, said the city wishes Richardson well in this new chapter of her life. “We appreciate her service of the last 15 years, and we wish her well in her retirement,” Wilson said. Richardson’s retirement follows on the heels of former Public Works and Parks Department director Cary Roe’s departure for Kennewick last month, along with Community Services Manager Jay Bennett’s departure for Zanesville, Ohio, which was announced on April 1. Former finance director Tho Krause kicked off this seeming exodus late last fall, when she left the city to take a position with the city of Lakewood.

Possession by anyone younger than 21, possession of larger amounts, and the growing of unlicensed or unregulated marijuana remains illegal under state law. If you need to smoke weed, just do it at home or head back to your Jeff Spicoli van. Mr. Federal Way doesn’t need to see your bong pipe. Q: Mr. Federal Way, did you know that last week was spring break for the school district and that kids now have Thursday and Friday off this week? Seems pretty ridiculous to me. A: Yes, it also seems pretty ridiculous to Mr. Federal Way. The children in the Federal Way school district have attended school three days in the

last two weeks. All Federal Way students had Thursday and Friday off for student-led conferences. According to the district’s website, student-led conferences create a partnership between the home and the school. In today’s world, it’s a rarity that a home in the Federal Way school district isn’t either a single-parent household or a household where both parents have to work to pay the bills. This means it’s very tough to take any time off of work, let alone organize childcare for the entire week of spring break and then to come back the next week and have to organize two more days of childcare. It’s makes no sense. It’s unfair to parents and

students, but it’s also unfair to teachers. After having a week off of school, it takes a few days for the students to get back into the grind of things. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were the transition days from being on spring break mode to school mode. So the kids would be getting back into the grove on Thursday, only to have the day off. What was the purpose of even going back to school Monday through Wednesday? Speaking for Mr. Federal Way’s kids, there was no point. They weren’t assigned any homework and were more excited to plan out what they were going to do on their days off Thursday and Friday. Making matters worse is

the fact that the studentled conferences are optional and Mr. Federal Way’s kids did not even have to attend. There’s really no reason for the kids who are doing well in school to attend these conferences. Maybe next year, the district can plan out their calendar a little better. Q: Mr. Federal Way, did you know there was a Federal Way woman on “The Voice?” Do you watch “The Voice?” Who do you think the best-looking judge is — Shakira, Adam Levine or Usher? A: None of your business.

Sidelines: Decatur suffers loss of Blindness Cooks, who inspired thousands doesn’t Dom Cooks lived his life to the fullest. It was just a life that was too short. The Decatur High School senior passed away Tuesday night at St. Francis Hospital in his hometown of Federal Way after a two-year battle with an inoperable brain tumor. It’s always a sad day when somebody dies. But it’s an even sadder day when somebody so young passes away, especially from something like cancer. But, if the definition of living a good life is inspiring people, then Dom Cooks lived an amazing life. He literally inspired thousands and thousands of people, both young and old, during his 18 years. As a high school student, you are the one who is supposed to get instruction and guidance from your teachers and administrators. But it was Cooks who was doing the teaching at Decatur during the 2013-14 school year. He made the morning announcements every day, which included some type of inspirational message, and was named an ASB officer by the Decatur students. Cooks was named the homecoming king and the school even held an early commencement ceremony in February so he could call himself a Decatur graduate. Dom Cooks was truly an inspiration. To illustrate that point, all you have to do is look on the USA TODAY’s website. Cooks received an amazing 214,260 votes during the final round of the newspaper’s 2014 National Guard Inspiration contest, which featured some of the most inspirational high school

Ma’alona-Faletogo earns Most Improved wrestler BY CASEY OLSON

[8] April 18, 2014

TJ GRAD RADFORD EARNS ALL-LEAGUE HONORS Jefferson graduate Eric Radford was named secondteam All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) after his senior season on the University of Redlands basketball team. While playing in all 16 conference contests, he averaged 12.3 points a game and hauled in 4.5 rebounds. Showing versatility on the floor, Radford shot 47.3 percent from the field, while going an incredible 57.1 percent from 3-point range, which was a new SCIAC record. From the free-throw line, he was also 55-of-67 during conference play for an 82.1 percent average. Radford’s best game came on Jan. 29, when he scored a career-high 21 points against Pomona-Pitzer Colleges. During his career, Radford finished sixth in career 3-point percentage at 46.6 percent. He made 83 of 178 from beyond the 3-point line.

Dom Cooks passed away from an inoperable brain tumor on Tuesday night at Federal Way’s St. Francis Hospital. Cooks was 18 years old. CASEY OLSON, The Mirror athletes from across the country. I first met Dom last October when I was invited into the family’s home the week before the Gators’ homecoming football game. This is when Dom scored his last touchdown for the Decatur football team, completing his “dream” of getting back on turf at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. Just before halftime against Auburn Mountainview, Cooks

crossed the goal line and completed his special “touchdown dance.” It was as poignant of a moment as you can have in life — spanning the emotional scale from tear-jerking to genuine and utter happiness. The thing I realized after spending those couple hours in the family home is that Dom could talk. Boy, could he talk. [ more SIDELINES page 9 ]

Goddess Ma’alona-Faletogo is just your normal, run-of-the-mill sixth grader. Like most 12 year olds, Ma’alona-Faletogo enjoys roaming the halls at Totem Middle School and competing in sports. But Ma’alonaFaletogo isn’t your normal, middleschool athlete. She is blind and was recently voted Most Improved by her teammates on Ma’alona-Faletogo the Totem wrestling team. Wrestling isn’t Ma’alona-Faletogo’s only endeavor into the sporting world. She has also competed in track and field, drill team and was a cheerleader for the SeaTac Sharks Junior Football program during the fall. “We don’t limit her,” said Goddess’s mother, Shannell Ulu said. “We told her, ‘If you want to do it, do it.’ Who would have known? Wrestling?” Ma’alona-Faletogo only wrestled in four matches during her first year at Totem. To accommodate Ma’alona-Faletogo, during practices and matches, opponents would start wrestling while holding hands. This allowed Goddess to know where her opponent was before starting to [ more GODDESS page 9 ]

PREP SPORTS WRAP: Beamer’s Sunitsch throws two-hitter in win over Jaguars Todd Beamer senior Scott Sunitsch was pretty-much unhittable Tuesday afternoon during a 3-1 win over the Emerald Ridge Jaguars. The Washington State-bound left-hander allowed just two hits during the win, striking out eight and walking only two. The victory moved the Titans to 8-2 overall and 5-2 in the SPSL South. Top-ranked Puyallup sits in first place in the division at 10-0. Kepa Sharpe finished with an RBI double and Jalen Prather was 2 for 4 with a run and RBI. Beamer also picked up a nonleague win over Auburn Saturday at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, 4-3. Dillon O’Grady got the win on the mound and Ben Arata finished 3 for 3. Jefferson — The Raiders (9-3 overall, 6-3 SPSL North) continued their impressive season with a 14-0 win over Kent-Meridian Tuesday. Alex Poltz got the win on the mound, throwing four innings of

[ SIDELINES from page 8 ] I think I might have asked two questions during those two hours, which is a very rare occurrence when interviewing a high school athlete. Pulling a quote out of a kid is sometimes like extracting a tooth. That wasn’t the case with Dom. Once he got going on the topic of basketball or football, there was no stopping him. That’s just how he lived his life. In the end, the only thing that could stop Dom Cooks was that tumor on his brain. Since being diagnosed in 2012, Cooks didn’t want anybody to feel sorry for him and never thought, for a second, that he wasn’t going to beat the awful disease of cancer. “At the beginning of the school year, doctors told me that I had three to six months to live,” Cooks told me back in October. “But nobody is going to tell me stuff like that. Before I got this tumor, I was going to the NBA or the NFL. That’s still what I’m going to do. Can’t nobody tell me any different. I’m definitely going to beat this. I’m kinda self-motivated like that.” My heart goes out to Dom’s family, including his mother, Tasha Wade, aunt Charmayne Harper and

no-hit ball. T.J Byrne led the offense, finishing 2 for 2 with a home run, two stolen bases and two runs. David Jaquish was 3 for 3 with three RBIs and Bryce Blanchard finished 2 for 3 with three RBIs. Poltz also had two hits and two RBIs and Michael Ziccarelli was 3 for 4 with two runs and an RBI. The Raiders also beat Liberty in a non-league game Saturday at Tacoma’s Cheney Stadium, 8-6. Zicarelli was 1 for 1 with two runs, a double and stolen base and Garrett Schubert finished 2 for 2 with two RBIs. Chris Richards got the win on the mound. Federal Way — The Eagles squeaked by the Curtis Vikings Tuesday, 7-6. Federal Way (5-4 overall, 4-4 SPSL South) got three hits from Gabe Togia and Rylan Cratsenberg finished 2 for 3 with three RBIs. Blake Koler got the win on the mound. Decatur — The Gators (9-4 overall, 6-2 SPSL 3A) blew out Lakes Tuesday, 12-1, in five innings. Garrett Westberg allowed just two hits

grandmother, Faye Wade. But, especially to his twin sister Diamond. Nobody has any clue how hard the last two years must have been for her. It’s common knowledge that twins have a special bond. They have the ability to finish each other’s sentences and feel the pain of their twin. With that in mind, Diamond Cooks’s pain must have been unbearable watching her twin brother’s health deteriorate since being diagnosed. My heart also goes out to the Decatur community. Living in Twin Lakes, I have a special bond with this place. My wife graduated from Decatur and my kids are, and will be, attending the school. Cooks’s death marks the latest in a very rough few years at Decatur. In May 2013, thensenior Pavlo Myronets was killed in a car crash on Highway 167. Former Decatur and Twin Lakes swim coach Rob Hill died in a plane crash in February 2012. In September 2011, junior Robert “Hurricane” Harris was at a family barbecue when he drowned in Lake Tapps after trying to retrieve a football that was floating in the water. In June 2010, Decatur seniors Derek King and Nicholas Hodgins were

and struck out five to get the win on the mound. Westberg also finished 3 for 4 with two runs and two RBIs at the plate. Offensively, the Gators pounded out 13 hits. Isaiah Hatch finished 2 for 4 with two runs and an RBI. Tyler Swanson was 2 for 3 with two runs and a double and Brooks Westrick was 2 for 2 with a run and RBI.


Beamer — The Titans tallied 11 runs in the bottom of the third inning on their way to a 14-2 win over Rogers Tuesday. Beamer had six hits, but took advantage of 10 errors by Rogers. The win kept the Titans on top of the SPSL South with a perfect 6-0 record. Megan Jewett-Chan finished with two hits and four RBIs and Analee Scott was 2 for 3 with three RBIs. Maddy Rogers allowed two hits and struck out five on the mound in five innings of work. Federal Way — Puyallup needed [ more WRAP UP page 12 ]

killed when they were struck by a drunken driver on Interstate 5, just three days before their graduation. Former Decatur grad Emmanuel Franco, 21, was killed Dec. 29, 2010, after a drunken driver crashed into him at the intersection of South 320th Street and Pacific Highway South. The Gator Nation will persevere, like it always has, but the loss of Cooks

is going to be a hard one to deal with for Decatur. “Honestly, if it wasn’t for Decatur, I don’t think I would be here today,” Cooks told me. “I just love Decatur. I love the kids at Decatur. It’s one, big happy family. “A lot of kids in school look forward to the weekends. But I wish we had school on the weekends because I love being here so much.”

wrestle. During the recently completed season for the Totem wrestling team, Ma’alonaFaletogo wrestled a grand total of four matches against all boys. She lost her first three matches before winning her final match of the season at the district tournament. Ma’alona-Faletogo not only won her district match against a Sacajawea wrestler, but earned a pin.“I never got to wrestle any girls,” Ma’alonaFaletogo said. “But it was pretty cool to win my last one.” Ma’alona-Faletogo suffers from Leber’s congenital amaurosis (LCA), which is a rare inherited eye disease that appears at birth or in the first few months of life. The disease affects around 1 in 80,000 of the population. LBA was first described by Theodor Leber in the 19th century. “Basically her pupils can’t be dilated the way they are supposed to,” said Ulu. “She can only see light. She only has light perception and nothing else.” Making it even rarer is the fact that another of Ulu’s five children also has LCA. Her 4-year-old daughter, is also blind because of the disease. “They are still trying to figure out why there are two in one family,” Ulu said. “My three boys can see just fine.” Wrestling is an individual sport. There’s no doubting that. The oldest sport in the world is the act of physical engagement between two unarmed persons, in which each wrestler strives to get an advantage over or control of an opponent. But wrestling is also a sport

that thrives on technique. The great wrestlers have a sixth sense about what to do in certain situations and being able to see the opponent offers a huge advantage. It’s an advantage Ma’alonaFaletogo doesn’t have, thanks to her blindness. But that hasn’t stopped her from putting out the tremendous effort and dedication it takes to participate in the sport. And that’s something Ma’alonaFaletogo takes great pride in. “In wrestling, they thought that I was weak,” Ma’alonaFaletogo said. “That was before I started wrestling. Now, I tell them, to look at my name on the plaque. They can now look in the display case and see that I was Most Improved.” Being a part of the Totem wrestling team has also helped Ma’alona-Faletogo feel like a bigger part of the school’s community. “It makes me feel included,” Ma’alona-Faletogo said. “I also like the fact that I get to slam people.” “I feel like a lot of these kids wouldn’t be able to relate on her level with her condition,” Ulu said. “Now they have something in common with them because of sports. She is entering a new phase. She’s growing older and she wants to try new things. Goddess gives a whole new meaning to blind. She puts a twist on it.” Opportunities to participate in athletics, school clubs and organizations, chorus, band, drama, etc., are available within the school setting throughout the Federal Way school district. Support services necessary for the participation of students in extracurricular activities are provided.

City revamps tourism website BY GREG ALLMAIN

V, the city’s tourism website, has a new look and user experience, one which the city hopes will help bring more people to Federal Way. “It’s really nice, it’s really attractive, it’s got a fresh look,” said Patrick Doherty, Community Development director, at the April 15 Federal Way City Council meeting. “It’s very engaging, we’ve got lots of images, close-ups of people doing things, which is a very good way of bringing people in.” Doherty said the reworked site has a breakdown of things to see and do in Federal Way, including itineraries that run from one to three days, and cover all seasons. “(The site has) places to stay, where to eat, where to shop, fun activities,” he said. “Main highlights of the city, and local events. We have an events calendar on here that we’re going to start maintaining.” Doherty said he’s trying to spread awareness among the business community about the reworked site,

specifically those dealing with hospitality and tourism. As the city continues to develop the site, Doherty said those businesses would be able to request direct access to the site and post their own content/events, etc., as needed. Councilmember Kelly Maloney asked if the city will have ultimate control of the content posted to the website, with Doherty replying in the affirmative. The city’s ability to adequately monitor that content may be contingent upon a proposal between Federal Way and Auburn, Doherty said. “If we’re able to join with Auburn in creating a tourism promotion area, that would bring more funds and would help bring staff that could run this and update it daily, so that’d be really helpful,” he said. Doherty noted that the tourism promotion area idea was set to be discussed at the April 16 Lodging Tax Advisory Committee meeting. “Once we have that ability to bring on staff through that tourism promotion area funding, that person will be up to date on all of that stuff

(search engine optimization and Google analytics), and we’re really hoping we can maximize the utility of this website,” Doherty added. Councilmember Dini Duclos was happy to see the website’s new look. “Deputy Mayor (Jeanne) Burbidge and I were talking about this not too long ago, saying we needed a friendlier website and an updated

website, so I’m delighted to see it,” she said. Duclos added she hopes there’s an appropriate vetting process that will take place with the businesses that seek to gain access to the site. Doherty said the nature of the site means there will be some exclusivity built in. “We have 3,000 businesses in town, we can’t

have 3,000 businesses on this website. So there’d be a focus on hospitality and supporting tourism. There has to be a certain amount of vetting because it needs to be a streamlined website that people can navigate easily, the pages load quickly, and (have it) focused on what people need.”

Mayor announces more management reorganization BY GREG ALLMAIN

vision of Brian Wilson, our chief of staff,” Ferrell said. “Those divisions used to be under the city attorney, and it seemed much more logical to have those functions in the mayor’s office.” Ferrell revisited the move to separate out the Economic Development and Community Development offices, a move announced on April 1.

Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell announced that Amy Jo Pearsall was appointed interim city attorney in the wake of former city attorney Pat Richardson’s departure earlier this month. “As of last week, we have a new interim city attorney,” Ferrell said during the Federal Way City Council’s April 15 meeting. “Amy Jo has worked with the city for 11 years, and for 18 months prior to that, with the firm of Kenyon Disend, representing municipalities. She previously served as an assistant city attorney for the city of Tacoma, and served as a DUI/domestic violence prosecutor for the Yakima County

Community Development office, and will also continue to work on the proposed Performing Arts and Conference Center, the mayor noted. The Council also voted on April 1 to recreate the position of Economic Development director, and the city is continuing to search for the right individual for that position, Ferrell said. The mayor also revisited

the separation of the Parks and Public Works departments, saying that for the time being, Marwan Saloum will head up the Public Works department, while Ken Miller will be in charge of the Parks department. This move, said Ferrell, was done “because of all kinds of things,” most notably the departure of Cary Roe for the city of Kennewick’s Public Works department.

Kiwanis presents Everyday Hero awards FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Greater Federal Way Kiwanis Club recently presented the club’s Everyday Hero awards to Lori Santamaria and Byron Hiller for their outstanding community service. The Kiwanis Club has a tradition of giving an Everyday Hero award to individuals who stand out in the community through their actions and activities. They give of themselves and share their talents and time for good causes, especially causes related to helping children.

Santamaria and Hiller donated their time to the club’s Murder Mystery Dinner Show on Feb. 15. All proceeds from that fundraiser will benefit children in the Federal Way community.

Free document shredding event April 19 FROM STAFF REPORTS

Residents can now dropoff confidential documents for shredding at the city of Federal Way’s free spring recycling event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 19 in the Wild Waves parking lot, at 36201 Enchanted Parkway S. Other accepted

items include appliances, branches, tires, mattresses, fluorescent tubes and Styrofoam for recycling, car seats and bicycles for reuse, and non-perishable food donations to support the on-site food drive. “We are continually looking to expand these events to include items that residents want to recycle, but have barriers due to lack of drop-off locations, fees or other issues,” said Jeanette Brizendine-Jurgensen, city’s recycling project manager. Visit for a complete list of items accepted at this event, plus loading order tips to make off-loading during your visit most efficient. The recycling event is intended for residential quantities, and vendors at the event reserve the right to reject any items that do not meet these standards. The city funds this event with grants from King County Solid Waste Division, the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County and Washington State Department of Ecology. Check the calendar at for dates and locations of other nearby recycling events.

Gregory A Stensrude

Gregory A Stensrude, born and raised in Redondo/Federal Way area, will be missed by many. We celebrated his life at Redondo in February, where the water was never too cold for him. The song that you sang for many, "He Needed Me," will comfort your friends and family. Now you’ll be singing with the best of God’s Choir. He cared about the homeless, crocheting scarves for them. I miss you terribly; wf.

• John Lee Warner –

John Lee Warner, 78, peacefully passed away at the family home in Federal Way, WA, on April 8, 2014. He was born December 8, 1935 in Three Rivers, Michigan to John K. and Bernice Warner (Garwood). He grew up in Three Rivers and graduated from high school in 1954. After graduation, John spent the next eight years doing a stint in the military and completing a tool maker apprenticeship. Then he moved to the Seattle-Tacoma area where he worked at the Boeing Company for five years. Thereafter, he sold insurance for Farmers Insurance Company for twenty years. He retired at the age of 62. John enjoyed doing many activities after his retirement. These activities included flying, maintaining and collecting cars, scavenging for car parts, square dancing, playing cards with friends and family and just relaxing. He enjoyed traveling, returning to Europe to see familiar sites he visited while in the Army, and most recently, accompanying his wife, Sandra Ka Warner (Jull), on a cruise for their 25th wedding anniversary. He loved helping neighborhood kids by repairing their bicycles, inflating their basketballs and giving them rides in the trailer of his riding lawn mower. The light of his life was the times he spent with his grandchildren. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Sandra. He is also survived by his sister, Phyllis VanZile (Warner) and children Kimberly (Lyle) Erlewine, Karin Warner, and Kenneth/ Charlie Warner. He loved his grandchildren: Olivia (Charley) Wilson, Roslyn Erlewine, Jesse Varvis, Sharlene and Mitchell Davis, Cory Mathewson and Johnny Schill. He is also survived by a stepdaughter, Kathy (James) Young and his first wife, Marlene A. Chidester (Drew). He leaves behind numerous step grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, Marvin (Phyllis) VanZile, and Carol (Charlie) Warner. There will be a celebration of life at a later date. Arrangements are being made through Edmonds Memorial. Remembrances may be left at

He was also a member of the 2012-13 Vikings squad which advanced to the Final Four of the NCAA Division-II National Championship tournament. During his time in Bellingham, Oliver also served as an assistant coach at Sehome High School under head coach A.J. LaBree. Prior to enrolling at WWU, Oliver was a standout player at Decatur, where he helped his team place seventh at the Class 4A State Tournament as a senior. “This is such a great opportunity for me,” commented Oliver. “I really like the team we have right now and I’m looking forward to having a great year.” Having played at Western Washington, Oliver will be familiar with much of the Slam’s personnel on the court, including former Federal Way High School and Highline Community College standout guard Morris Anderson. Anderson is back for his fifth season with the team. The team also recently added guard Darius Alo, a teammate of Anderson’s at Federal Way, to the roster for the 2014 season. Oliver joins a Slam team which is in search of its third straight IBL Championship. The season gets underway on April 25 with the team’s home opener against the Seattle Flight at Whatcom Pavilion. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. • Todd Beamer Dance Team has had another successful competition season.

The Todd Beamer hip-hop dance team recently finished in second place at the Class 4A WIAA Dance/Drill State Championships in Yakima. COURTESY PHOTO On March 28, the team placed second out of 19 teams in the hip-hop category at the Yakima Sun Dome at the WIAA Dance/Drill State Championships. The Titans, who hold eight out of the last 11 Class 4A hip-hop titles, was defeated by the Pasco High School Bulldogs by a very slim margin with a score of 287.2 to Pasco’s 287.8. Although the Titan’s dance was more technical, the Bulldogs wowed the judges with their big tricks, according to the coaching staff. The Titans have a 24-member team this year coached by Valicia Valiani, with team captains Sarah Clow, Madeline Blauser and Juliana Song. The dance team’s season officially ends with their annual showcase, the Beamer Breakdown, on April 25 and April 26. The Beamer Breakdown is a dance show that features their winning hip-hop





routine choreographed by Daniel Cruz, as well as other dance styles, including ballroom and jazz. Beamer Breakdown has guest performers from all around the greater Seattle area, including Illahee Middle School, Pacific Ballroom Dance, Western Washington University HipHop Team and Team Boogiezone Breed Seattle. This showcase started 11 years ago when Todd Beamer High School first opened and continues to gain popularity year after year. Beamer Breakdown tickets provide the primary source of funding for the team’s costumes, as well as travel and events. Tickets are available at the door for $8 for students and $10 for adults.

According to documents, Muhanji told an officer that he had recently contacted a 12-year-old female through Facebook with the intent of communicating with her for sex.

Von Reichbauer to host job fair, town hall FROM STAFF REPORTS

King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer is set to host a veterans’ job fair and town hall meeting from 1-4 p.m. on April 22 at the Federal Way Community Center. According to a press release, the job fair is aimed at matching local veterans “with local employers from the aerospace, law enforcement and manufacturing industries.” It’s also aimed at “educating participants on the variety of series that county, state and nonprofit agencies offer to veterans.”

unknown suspects broke into her residence and stole approximately $61,000 in jewelry, electronic items and other personal items. Trouble on bus follows woman off of bus: At 1:58 p.m. on April 10 in the 31000 block of 23rd Ave. S., a woman reported that she was assaulted by an unknown male after getting off of a Pierce County bus. According to the report, the suspect was disruptive on the bus and exited at the same stop as the victim. The report is unclear whether the victim interacted with the suspect, but the suspect is said to have thrown an object at the woman, which left a laceration on the woman’s finger. Woman’s cell phone stolen at mall: At 9:50 p.m. on April 10 in the 2200 block of S. Commons, a woman reported her cell phone was stolen by a group of boys. According to the report, the victim was at the mall and was using her cellphone when a group of boys approached her. The victim indicated that one boy took her phone directly from her hand, and then he and the group dispersed. The report notes the suspect was known to the victim, mostly from skating at Pattison’s West skate rink. While local, regional and state economies seem to finally be coming sluggishly back to life, von Reichbauer noted that there are still many who are in need of employment altogether. “Unemployment and underemployment are too high in Washington state, and especially in South King County,” von Reichbauer said. “As more and more veterans return from overseas, I want to do what I can to ensure these returning service members are able to find civilian employers who will value their extraordinary skills and discipline. There is no greater service one can provide to a veteran than helping him or her find a job.” Pre-registeration is encouraged at www.

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

Growing up in a Third World nation and Federal Way to school for a start. When I was five, my mom took me to the closest nursery school, which was 10 kilomenters away from our home. There were no buses, no shoes and no packed lunch for me either. And to make sure I got there, I had to run my small feet with my brothers who had to be in class by 7 a.m. come rain or sunshine and be back home after 5 p.m. To compound it, the admission qualification was to touch your ear by passing your opposite hand over your Gitau Wanjiku

of the choices we had, versus what I observed and heard. I had not the slightest clue that later on in life I’d be part of the next generation’s comparative anecdotal character. As I look back and contrast life then and now, striking similarities and differences exist between the Third World kid that I was, and the kids I’m raising in the places that previously only existed in the movies and television shows. Take the matter of going



hen I was growing up in a Third World country, (I still wonder where the other two worlds are), I used to wonder about all those foreign places that we’d read about in the geography books or see in the open air community movie show. The great prairies of Canada, the wild, wild west of horses, lassos and gun-slinging cowboys, of sophisticated people who drove huge cars and drank beer like it was water, of a people who had a lot of wealth at their disposal. I was in awe of the disparity

head. Woe to my big head. I couldn’t reach it so I had to repeat my nursery class for a second year. Having lunch was the rare occurrence; we just didn’t have anything to spare and when we had some leftover supper, I wouldn’t carry it to school and be labeled a baby. No sir. In comparison, for my kid’s school admission here in Federal Way, a birth certificate was the determinant factor. The kids take the bus right from my front door at 8 a.m., take snacks to school, have lunch at school, and are back home by 3 p.m.

They can choose from a variety of meals and spend most of the day coloring or doing other crafts. To me, some of the strange activities they participate in do not make effective use of time and resource use, such as going to school in their pajamas or spending the day coloring cartoons. It seems such a waste of a day by my school day’s standards, though they can read, do math and speak better English in first grade than when I was in third grade. On the flip side, my kids cannot walk a mile without complaining and for any small scratched elbow, they want the emergency room now. Only a total limb disability could have kept me away from school. All said, we all learned to read and write, despite the contrasts. The other aspect regards how I spent my spare time while school was out. Whereas my kids now get three consecutive months for the holidays, we had one month of holiday for every three months of school. By age 8, I could make a toy car replica from soft wire, essentially and remorselessly stripped from a neighbor’s pasture fencing. Serious time was spent trying to outdo each other in creating flamboyant car styles with shiny wheels from tin cans, closable luggage hatches, or miniature drivers from rags. Our games involved playing soccer from homemade balls made from polythene shopping bags salvaged from the garbage dumps, nicely wrapped up with twine by a specialist kid. A considerable amount of time was also spent hunting small wild game, such as hares and gazelle, picking delicious wild berries in the forests or sometimes raiding neighbor’s fruit and sugarcane gardens. Many a day would end up with a communal discipline meted out by our parents. I have wonderful memories of successful raids, botched operations and close encounters with angry neighbors.

For my kids, they spend most of their free time playing online games with their friends and watching TV shows. They talk about Rango, Tom and Jerry, Pink Panther and Dora cartoon characters like they are our next door neighborhood kids. They have to have cartoon-branded bedspreads, a Rango brush and toothpaste and so forth, items I consider as conspicuous consumption. Occasionally and weather permitting, they also play soccer in the synthetic grass field with their branded balls, shin guards and bright uniforms. They just cannot fathom how we managed our free time without having a TV, cell phone and other electronics and believe I make up my life story of abject poverty as justification to denying them their pacifiers. They claim to know that they are protected by the Child Protection Act against real or perceived parental harms and thus believe I am not justified in meting out punishment. I insist to them I do not care about the act and anyone who misbehaves by my standards, I will punish and then ship them back home to my village-based watch and punish system. For now, this seems to be working. At the end of the day, they have their satisfaction when they win an online PS3 game, just like we did after a successful sugarcane raid. I sometimes wish we had all the stuff that they have, though if I was to choose, I’d bet we had more fun than they have growing up. We had our contraptions and a lot of fun; they have their custom made goods and less fun. But like they say, you can’t have your cake and eat it.

Police taking back unwanted prescription drugs FROM STAFF REPORTS

On April 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Federal Way Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its eighth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to Federal Way City Hall at 33328 Eighth Ave. S., Federal Way. Weather permitting, the drop-off site will be located outside for easy drive up access, or it will be conveniently located in the Police Department Lobby. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches. Last October, Americans turned in 324 tons (more than 647,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 4,114 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners. When those results are combined with what was collected in its seven previous take back events, DEA and its partners have taken in more than 3.4

million pounds — more than 1,700 tons — of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. The DEA is in the process of approving new regulations that implement the Safe and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” (that is, a patient or their family member or pet owner) of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances.

Todd Beamer student awarded prestigious scholarship FROM STAFF REPORTS

Madison Weinman of Federal Way was awarded a scholarship for the 2014/2015 academic year and will join a group of 50 American high school students sponsored by ASSE International Student Exchange Programs who will live with a host family and attend high school in Germany for one academic year. As a Congress-Bundestag scholarship recipient, Madison will experience German life firsthand. She will live with a host family while becoming a member of her German host community, attending school, participating in community life and learning more than she ever imagined about another country and culture, about the world and its diversity and about herself. Since 1983, the United States Department of State and the German government have co-sponsored the prestigious Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Scholarship Program to help prepare ambitious young people for a global future. The CBYX program has enabled more than 17,000 students to expand their global perspectives and make new friends. Congress-Bundestag students are youth ambassadors of the United States, sharing their life and culture with their German hosts and building greater understanding of the United States and its diversity. When Madison leaves for Germany, a group of German scholarship students will be arriving to live with American host families while attending high school in the USA. Students and families interested in receiving more information about hosting a Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Scholarship winner from Germany or other ASSE International Student Exchange Programs should call 1-800-733-2773 or visit ASSE’s website at honor of being spelling bee champion. Sara Oh, instructor of the Federal Way Kumon Center, shared with the audience her personal story of how her own daughter gained confidence in school through an opportunity to participate in a school-wide spelling bee. “Every child deserves an opportunity to shine … be it sports, music or academics,” Oh said. “We are thrilled to offer this annual event to our Kumon families and hope that this is one of many events in your children’s lives where they shine.” First place winners include Melinda Nguyen, kindergarten; Shreeansh Ray Samant, first grade; Maya Deaton, second grade; Vardaan Kumar, third grade; Mason Kung, fourth grade; and Iris Hamilton, fifth grade.
