Federal Way woman found dead in Kent BY STEVE HUNTER Reporter Newspapers

Kent Police are investigating an apparent domestic violence killing on the West Hill of a 39-year-old Federal Way woman found dead in her car at a Park & Ride lot on Military Road South. Ruth Castillo-Yanez died from multiple stab wounds, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office. Kent Police were contacted Sunday evening by Seattle Police regarding a Burien man who turned himself in to Seattle Police Department, advising that he had killed his ex-wife and left her body in her vehicle at a Kent Park & Ride lot, according to a Kent Police media release on Tuesday. Kent patrol units responded to the Kent-Des Moines Park & Ride in the 23400 block of Military Road South. They found a lone vehicle that contained the dead woman. Detectives are working to clarify the circumstances that led to her death, as well as a motive for the fatal assault. Detectives spent multiple hours at the scene conducting the initial investigation. The suspect, 41, remains in custody. “This appears to be a tragic incident of domestic violence, and there is no reason to believe that additional family members or the community at large are at risk,” Kent detective Tim Ford said.

Council mulls first steps toward economic summit BY GREG ALLMAIN

T

he Federal Way City Council recently discussed a new committee that would help direct an economic

summit for Federal Way’s future. City officials hope to hold the summit this by this fall. Chief of Staff Brian Wilson outlined what this exploratory committee would need to ensure the

Federal Way girl finalist in national pageant

planned economic summit is a fruitful venture for all involved. “The idea is to promote an economic development summit,” Wilson said. “The purpose … is to initiate the process for the beginning

of an economic development summit planned for the fall of 2014. The purpose would be to identify the mission, focus, strategy, process and outcomes that would come about from an initiative like this.”

Wilson outlined some of the basic questions the summit would likely be tasked to answer, including: • What is desired in Federal Way’s downtown [ more CITY, page 3 ]

Selena Krivoruchko hasn’t competed in pageants all of her life. In fact, five years ago, she never dreamed she’d be a finalist in the National American Miss Washington State Pageant this August. But after receiving a mysterious referral letter one day she decided to try it out. “I was kind of surprised because I’ve always seen [pageanters] as the girls that are always the really skinny ones and the really pretty ones,” said Selena, 16, in an interview. “[But] there’s no swimsuit contests, it’s just about becoming a better spokesperson and being in front of crowds, so it was really cool to see that someone referred me even though I’m not the skinniest person in the world.” The National American Miss Washington State Pageant was formed on the basis of just that — pageant finalists are judged on their communication skills, personal introduction and their poise and appearance in the formal wear section of the pageant, not superficial beauty standards. “Braces, glasses, skin problems, varying heights and many other conditions are all just a part of being young,” the National American Miss organization states on their website. “The judges are giving you scores based on where you are in life, just the way you are.” Selena, a Federal Way resident and student at Todd Beamer High School, will compete in the Miss Washington Junior Teen age divi-

sion, one of five age divisions, set to take place throughout Aug. 7-10 at Hotel Murano in Tacoma. After Selena was referred, she attended a mock interview, where she was chosen to compete as a finalist. Then came the training. “I’m really excited to know how the interview process goes because when I went to training to see what kind of questions would be asked … they will ask you just about anything,” Selena said. “One question they asked us was, ‘You’re handed a banana phone. It’s ringing, answer it. Who is it?’” Selena said at first she and her friends sat there for a moment, perplexed.

“You have to be creative,” she said, adding that she and her friends decided it would be the president on the other line. “They’re looking for what’s your first reaction to that.” She said contestants will be asked to give a personal introduction, which will include standing on stage in front of the judges and stating their name, where they live, grade level and something interesting about themselves, such was what they want to do in the future. Selena’s “something interesting” is to turn her photography hobby into a professional career, as well as one day own her own advertising company.

She plans to read the quote: “Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them,” by Elliott Erwitt, an advertising and documentary photographer known for his black and white photos. Selena has also prepared for probably the most anticipated part of the night by purchasing what she calls her “princess gown.” “It’s kind of like an aqua sea foam green color,” she said, lighting up. “It shimmers at the skirt and at the waist it has these rhinestones that kind of look like they’re creating leaves around my waist and it’s also [ more PAGEANT page 2]

strapless.” “Five years ago I wasn’t as girly as I am now,” she said. “I used to hate wearing dresses and skirts and then I just got into it.” Selena explained she’ll showcase her poise by standing with what is called her “pretty feet,” or one foot at 12-o-clock and the other at 10. “It’s supposed to help you so you don’t play with your hands while you stand in front when you’re doing your personal introduction,” she said. “It’s just so you don’t look nervous. It keeps you from getting nervous.” And as a first-time pageant finalist, yes, she’s nervous. The winner of the pageant will receive $1,000, the official crown and banner, a bouquet of roses and air transportation to

compete in the National Pageant in California. The winner will also get to experience a complimentary tour of Hollywood and two VIP tickets to Disneyland. If Selena wins, she would use some of it for shopping but the rest for her college tuition. Selena balances her 3.9 grade point average with volleyball, track and field and knocking down pins with Todd Beamer’s first bowling team. And when she’s not studying, doing school sports or practicing one of the three instruments she can play — saxophone, flute and piccolo — she’s riding dirt bikes with her dad, helping the community as a Girl Scout and volunteering at Camp Sunshine in the summer. Camp Sunshine, a camp for children and teens with disabilities, is especially meaningful since her brother grew

up with cerebral palsy. “It’s a lot of fun hanging out with the campers, making them smile and just seeing how they’re just so happy about the little things in life,” she said, adding that this summer was her fourth time volunteering as a camp counselor. Her short-term goals include becoming the Todd Beamer band’s drum major and after high school she hopes to continue her education at the Seattle Art Institute or the University of Washington. Selena currently has five local sponsors: Go-Driving School, Cisco Insurance Agency, Sound Properties, RJ Editing and Service Business Equipment and Sales. The National American Miss Pageant awards $1.5 million in cash and scholarships annually. For more information, visit www. namiss.com.

and the city as a whole, in the short and long-term? • What are the market forces affecting Federal Way currently, and into the future? • How can Federal Way position itself to capitalize on market opportunities? • What is needed in Federal Way’s downtown, and the entire city, for growth and prosperity? • Specifically regarding the summit, who should be involved? • How would the city’s ongoing look at rebranding be incorporated into the summit? • How can the city make sure Sound Transit is included in any future plans, considering the economic importance of the light rail extension? • What is the development potential in Federal Way’s “core frame” and throughout the city? Mayor Jim Ferrell reiterated the question before the Council on July 15, saying

the goal for the initial meeting was to see “what the Council wants … in regards to the task force that we’re going to put together.” “We anticipate two to three members of the City Council will be members [of the task force],” he added. “We’ll have representation by private citizens, the Chamber of Commerce and perhaps the school district.” Ferrell hopes this particular task force would be able to produce results, such as the outcome with the Blue Ribbon Panel that was convened to study the Performing Arts and Conference Center. He added the plan is to “launch the task force” and “announce its membership by the second meeting in September.” Councilwoman Dini Duclos agreed with the idea of a task force, but said she’d like greater Council involvement than the Blue Ribbon Panel. “I appreciate the work and I appreciate the idea

of a task force,” she said. “However, I do want the Council involved this time. We were cut out of the last one and it didn’t feel appropriate since we’ve been working on the downtown for so long … The Council needs to have representation on this committee.” Ferrell agreed, saying the need for Council involvement was why “we didn’t just rush out and do another mayor’s panel.” “In all candor, we could have easily done that, but it’s important that we link up arms and do this together,” he added. Councilman Bob Celski agreed on the need for the preliminary task force. “The composition of this thing is going to be critical, just like it was with the Blue Ribbon Panel, and we know the results that came out of that,” he said. Some disagreement that arose during the July 15 discussion was whether there should be a deadline for the task force. Council-

woman Susan Honda said the city should take the time to “do it right,” while Duclos said a specified timeframe is an important component of the project at this point. “We should take the time, but we should also have the deadline, we should be prepared and have everything ready for the committee so they can start working right away,” Duclos said. According to Wilson, the second Council study session on this topic is scheduled for Aug. 12.

FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Rosebud Children’s Theater Conservatory is celebrating it’s fifth anniversary this summer with two productions: “Princess Whatshername,” which ran from July 18-20 and “Once Upon a Mattress,” which is scheduled to begin performances at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays between Aug. 1-3 and Aug. 8-10, with a matinee showing on those same dates at 2:30 p.m. The show is being held at the Federal Way United Methodist Church, located at 29645 51st Ave. S. in Auburn. Managing artistic director Holly Rose said the Children’s Theater Conservatory program is one of her favorites because of the evolution of the young performers. “The thing that I find most rewarding about my work with Rosebud is growth,” she said. “Growth of individual students’ self-esteem through the development of their creative talents, greater sense of community togetherness, increased interest in the arts, and an overall growth of support of the kids and families that we serve.” One of the young performers for theater, Katherine Elliott, agreed that these annual summer performances have become an integral part of her life, saying that she returns each year “because of the friendly atmosphere and welcoming cast.” Elliott is

King County Council approves Metro compromise FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Metropolitan King County Council unanimously approved a compromise plan on Monday to move forward with certain bus service reductions for Metro, while deferring an additional 200,000 hours of service reductions originally proposed for June and September 2015, pending adoption of

the 2015/2016 King County budget. Following the defeat of Proposition 1, the county executive asked the Council to approve legislation that would reduce Metro bus service by 550,000 hours between September 2014 and September 2015. The ordinance approved Monday implements only the service reductions originally proposed for September of this year, with a focus on cutting bus routes that are in the bottom 25 percent of productivity in accordance with the County’s adopted transit service guidelines. The adopted legislation also authorizes 188,000 hours of service to be cut in February 2015, but does not approve the specific routes to be eliminated or revised. The 188,000 hours would be adjusted based upon the recommendation of an ad-hoc committee created to review the July and August economic forecasts.

ere we go again. Last week, I requested that city officials disclose the finalists’applications for the city’s economic development director position. I knew the city was in the interview phase of filling the position and I wanted to ensure that residents could weigh in on Mayor Jim Ferrell’s decision. It’s a huge position. The person who leads that department will be charged with attracting businesses to Federal Way and promoting economic growth in the city. However, city staff notified me on July 17 that the city would not disclose the applications, citing state law, RCW 42.56.250(2). The law states that applications for public employment are exempt from disclosure. Fair enough — if it was that simple. But a search through the Mirror’s story archives found the city has disclosed finalists’information before, for the community development director and police chief positions. And other cities have disclosed finalists’information too, including Kent and Bellevue. The latter city went so far as to host a meet-andgreet in 2010 for Bellevue residents to speak with four finalists for the planning director position. Imagine that. So this week, I asked Ferrell if we could circumvent the public records disclosure process and if he could tell me who the finalists are, as the city has done in the past. The problem, Ferrell said, is that he did not notify the five finalists that their information would be disclosed to the public. He was concerned about their privacy and potentially jeopardizing the finalists’current employment. I understand his concern. But their are 90,150 residents in Federal Way and their right to know far outweighs a few out-of-state finalists. We’ve been at this crossroads before, when the city refused to disclose the finalists’applications for a Council vacancy in February. The Council and mayor finally voted to disclose the applications to the public, following some public outcry prompted by the Mirror. And the mayor told me that moving forward the city would include a disclaimer on city applications, notifying applicants that their information would be subject to public disclosure. The city has yet to add that disclaimer, though the mayor this week said he would ensure the disclaimer goes on applications for Council positions at least. Regarding the legal exemption the city cited, some officials believe it is optional. “I’ve always viewed this exemption as optional, not mandatory. The city could choose to waive it if they want to,”said then-Assistant Attorney General for Government Accountability Tim Ford in the Bremerton Patriot’s January 2013 story regarding a similar issue. Ford added that cities usually release this information “because they want public feedback”on who they should appoint or hire. Carrie Rodriguez

Welcome to Town Square Park If you were not at the dedication of Federal Way’s Town Square Park this past Saturday, you missed out on a piece of Federal Ways newest piece of history. Mayor Jim Ferrell’s vision of creating a central park in our community is a success right from the snip of the red ribbon that was cut, which officially opened the park for the community to enjoy for many years to come. Under Ferrell’s leadership this park came together in six weeks, not six months. If you were there or not, keep in mind this park will be in a constant state of evolving. It is not com-

The happy trails of Martin Moore The first half of 2014 has been politically spectacular. A controversial superintendent, Rob Neu, leaving town for another job. One school board member with legal difficulties and another with judgment problems. The fire chief in a tiff with one of his board members. Long-time State Sen. Tracey Eide deciding not to run again. The passage of the Performing Arts and Conference Center by the City Council. A new activist Mayor Jim Ferrell, who is spending all the money his predecessor said we didn’t have. All of these stories could be candidates for story of the year when December rolls around. But beneath these well known headlines, the professional politicos are watching another story that has been brewing for over a year and may have even bigger implications in the long run. The happy, and sometimes unpredictable, trails of Martin Moore have caused many to cast a curious eye in the young councilman’s direction as his movements and possible election results could place him in a very powerful position by year’s end. Moore, a Democrat, defeated an appointed incumbent, Republican Diana NobleGulliford, last fall to win a seat on the Council. Noble-Gulliford knows Federal Way and its

issues better than most and outshined Moore in debates. But Moore had a compelling personal story and worked hard to capture the victory. Moore caused some anxiety among Democrats a few years ago when he ran Republican Bob Celski’s successful campaign for the Council. However, he also helped with Democrat Roger Freeman’s successful campaign for the state Legislature and he worked in Olympia as Freeman’s assistant. Despite some misgivings, Democrats turned out to support Moore’s Council election. Moore has not made a secret of his interest in higher office and that has caused many from both parties to watch his movements more closely. And Moore has made an impact. He was kingmaker and held the deciding vote in selecting Lydia Assefa-Dawson to the Council. While a Democrat, she has supporters in both parties, so Moore scored points with both sides. He strongly supported the passage of the Performing Arts and Conference Center, and held the key fourth vote until Assefa-Dawson’s appointment made passage a sure thing. But there have also been questions about his commitment to public policy. As the most visible Council Democrat, some expected he might [ more ROEGNER, page 5 ] Bob Roegner

plete. There will be many changes yet to come before it is perfect. The outcome of this park should be to tie the PACC and a formal downtown corridor together. So with that, a congratulations goes to Ferrell for taking a vision and making it reality. Most important, though, for living up and delivering on a campaign promise. Federal Way took a huge step in to its future.

Randall Smith, Federal Way

High Point project opposed by community The very heart and soul

of Federal Way is being tested in the appeal of the High Point Mixed Use. The plan to shoehorn in 300 housing units above commercial development, on 320th right across from Safeway on 320th has been intensely opposed by the community. Over 80 people joined in the appeal against it. In spite of an outpouring of citizens, the proposal is going forward. Our city’s comprehensive plan promises to “Preserve and protect Federal Way’s single-family neighborhoods”… yet this proposal will open a back door into our neighborhood and allow strangers right into our quiet streets. Kids play

safely in front of people’s homes now. This will not be the case any more. This is an unacceptable impact that we neighbors are trying to stop. The city promises to “Protect residential areas from impacts of adjacent non-residential“ yet not in this location, apparently. The city appears to be giving the developer preferential treatment, offering him reduced parking places (only 1.5 spots per unit) reduced buffer with the neighborhood (only 11.25 instead of 15foot buffer) reduced lawns (from 20 feet to 10 feet by the neighbors)… it goes on and on with variances

to the City Frame zoning. This proposal gives nothing to the people -- not at all. The city promises to “Maintain and protect the character of existing and future single-family neighborhoods,” yet this proposal will strip all living things from the school bus barn property, removing trees and and hedges that have been growing as a screen for over 40 years. People’s quality of life will be diminished and the character of the neighborhood destroyed if they take every tree. And I thought we were supposed to be a ‘green city’! The hearing will be on July 28 at the City Council Chambers.

be the voice to lead a charge to have the Performing Arts and Conference Center placed on the ballot for a public vote after Ferrell dropped the issue. Most of Federal Way’s population is lower income and may not be able to afford the cost to attend the new facility. And they are most likely Democrats. Giving a voice to those who felt a lack of representation would have been consistent with his story, but Moore seems to have missed an opportunity. And with so much democratic discussion about a $15 an hour minimum wage, Moore seemed the likely person to champion the cause. But so far nothing has surfaced. In fact, Moore is again under the microscope for having one foot in each political camp. He is, of course, supporting the reelection of his boss Freeman to the state Legislature. But, he is also actively involved in Mark Miloscia’s campaign for the state Senate. Miloscia has switched parties and is running as a Republican. Moore has always viewed Miloscia as a mentor and there has been some begrudging latitude by local Democrats. But, that acceptance of Moore’s view that his “friendship” with Miloscia is more important, is wearing thin. Moore’s recent attendance at a 30th District Republican fundraiser did not go unnoticed, even though Moore says he was there to support only Miloscia. Since the event was to support all Republican candidates, including Jack Dovey, who is running against Freeman,

and Rep. Linda Kochmar who Moore has also been a campaign manager for, others thought it crossed the line. Moore has previously expressed irritation at the questions regarding his support for Republican candidates and speculation he may switch parties. He says, no, he is a Democrat. In fact, Moore seems somewhat confused as to why his behavior is of concern. But local observers say “he can’t have it both ways,” public service is a serious business and his actions have invited criticism. The view is that he can’t say he’s a Democrat, ask for democratic support and then support Republicans. The story of Moore is likely to have many more chapters. What happens if both Miloscia and Freeman win? Who will Moore go to work for? And what office is he aiming at next? What issues will he push as a Council member? What is his true philosophy? Deep inside, what does he really care about? And, where do his real loyalties reside? Democrat, Republican or Independent? Time may be running out as more people are wondering which direction Moore’s “happy trail” leads. If Miloscia, Freeman and Kochmar all win, Moore could be very well positioned to look at higher office or he may have raised enough concern that the Democrats will want to find another candidate to support. Or both could happen. Moore has taken a big gamble. Will it pay off?

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell announced the appointment of John Hutton as director of the City of Federal Way Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department, which was effective July 21. Hutton has been serving as interim department director since June of this year. “The Federal Way community has a growing need for parks facilities and recreation programs,” Ferrell said. “In John Hutton, we have a director who has the vision, passion and skills to grow our Parks and Recreation services to meet those needs.” Since 2001, Hutton has served as the Parks Recreation Supervisor and has developed Federal Way’s recreation program into one of the best in the state. The city regularly hosts successful major athletic tournaments and offers youth and adult sports leagues. In addition, Hutton has overseen a growing range and depth of community recreation programs, including senior programs, special events, day camps, sports clinics and the inclusion recreation program, among others. The new director is coming off an especially busy interim period during which he organized the Red, White & Blues Festival — the biggest community event of the year —º the grand opening of the Town Square Park and the grand re-opening of the Family Funland playground.

P

eggy LaPorte, the founder and president of FUSION, has been named the Mirror’s Citizen of the Month for July. FUSION, which stands for Friends United to Shelter the Indigent, Oppressed and Needy, is a nonprofit charity organization that provides transitional housing and support services for homeless families and has been a mainstay of non-governmental social services in Federal Way for a number of years now. “I’m truly honored and humbled by [being chosen as Citizen of the Month],” LaPorte said. “There are so many well-deserving

citizens in our community, and I really appreciate the honor.” LaPorte said that while she may be the public face associated with FUSION, the organization’s work wouldn’t be possible without the help of the broader community. “I truly believe in the mission of FUSION. It’s not about promoting myself, but about promoting families in our community and helping them become stable and self-sufficient,” she said. “This is a group effort, it’s not about one person’s actions, but about a community that comes to support the mission in so many ways.” The others that com-

A park for all of us A couple weeks ago, I was thrilled to see more than 1,000 people come out for the opening of Town Square Park, our city’s first downtown park. As we cut the ribbon that day, we were celebrating more than a park. We were celebrating the birth of our city’s future downtown, a true milestone for the entire community. Every great city — big or small — has at least one central gathering place where residents can come together for community events, rallies and concerts, or to gather in smaller groups for picnics and recreational activities. New York has Central Park and Bryant Park. Seattle has Westlake Park. Portland has McCall Waterfront Park and many others. Now, Federal Way has Town Square Park. The excitement and energy was palpable throughout the event as people listened to the live bands and kids jumped in the bounce houses, blew bubbles and did arts and crafts. A downtown park should be the beating heart of the city, where people from different neighborhoods come together on common ground to enjoy their city and what it has to offer. Last Saturday’s event showed us what this park will be. I’ve tasked Parks Director John Hutton and his staff with developing and offering interesting and engaging

programs at the park. We have one of the finest Parks and Recreation departments in the region and they will be working to transfer some of the successful kids and adult programs developed at the Community Center and bring them to Town Square. This four-acre multi-use park is designed to be a park for all our people. The lawn area is the site of recreation programs like Yoga in the Grass, volleyball clinics and other activities. It is also a great place to bring a lawn chair or blanket and get some sun on a hot summer day like we’ve had in recent weeks. Chess players can check out pieces from parks staff to play the giant chess board. The picnic tables offer a convenient place for a workday lunch break or to meet your friends for lunch beneath an astounding view of Mt. Rainier. And yes, you can get free Wi-Fi at the park through the Federal Way wireless network. The park features a full-sized basketball court and two half-courts, with one basket lowered and reserved for little hoopsters. We already have a kids 3V3 tournament scheduled for August (registration at www.itallhappenshere.org) and we plan to have many more special activities. The courts and much of the park grounds are painted with bright colors, including a kids maze and

prise the group that helps FUSION accomplish it goals include “businesses, churches, non-profits and service organizations in our community,” she added. FUSION is an allvolunteer driven organization. There are currently over 180 volunteers, who contribute approximately 18,000 hours per year. As it currently stands, FUSION maintains 17 fully furnished homes and condominiums in Federal Way, five homes in northeast Tacoma, and can also boast an 85 percent success rate of getting the families they help into permanent housing, self-sufficiency and employment. “The volunteers are a spiral that are great fun for youngsters to follow the patterns. Positive activity and ongoing staffing of the park will ensure that the park

upholds a family-friendly atmosphere and that we can be responsive to the needs of park patrons. Additionally, we’ll ensure that park safety is always paramount

from the park, the site will be monitored through our SafeCity cameras. Much of what this park is reflects needs and preferences we have heard from residents over the past year. Town Square Park will evolve over time as people use it, and share their ideas for new services and features. The onsite park kiosk includes a place for people to leave comments and suggestions. These can also be sent directly to John Hutton at john.hutton@cityoffederalway.com or by calling John at 253-835-6910. Throughout last fall’s campaign, I had heard from thousands of people who want to see our downtown become something we can all be proud of. I promised that one of the things we would do this year would be converting the old vacant AMC lot the city has owned for eight years into a park.

The $267,000 in construction costs came from the $2.4 million City Center Redevelopment fund established to develop our downtown. The Town Square Park investment is vital to transforming the downtown into a destination for residents and visitors alike. For decades we have been talking about reshaping our downtown and creating a sense of place, a true city center. Town Square Park is that center. With the Performing Arts and Conference Center being built next door, we will soon have two facilities that draw people to the city center. Businesses will want to be where people are. Town Square Park is the visible sign that the candle has been lit and Federal Way’s downtown is on the rise.

[ EDITOR from page 4] Bottom line: The city should include residents in its decision making process, including major hiring decisions and projects that will affect the community. I urge the mayor, Council members and city department heads who influence major decisions to include the public. Hold a meet-and-greet, disclose finalists’information and include all 90,150 residents, not just a few on a panel. Some residents, including supporters of the Performing Arts and Conference Center, have argued that we elect our leaders to make decisions that are best for us. I strongly disagree. “The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies that serve them,”according

to the preamble to the Public Records Act. “The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may maintain control over the instruments that they have created.” Moving forward, Ferrell said the city will work on disclosing finalists’information to the public, including the upcoming positions for city attorney and community development director. I look forward to watching the city’s transparency improve with these changes. And the Mirror looks forward to sharing this information with the public so that you can provide feedback on issues that impact you.

tutes girlfriend: At 5:33 p.m. on July 19 in the 3800 block of SW 339th St., a 23-year-old woman called police to state she didn’t want to prostitute anymore and that her 29-year-old boyfriend wasn’t aware she was calling. The woman was whispering and being evasive as she told the 911 dispatcher that her boyfriend and two other males were at her residence. When officers arrived on scene, she told officers her boyfriend had asked her to prostitute for him multiple times and that she had been prostituting herself off and on since she was 15 years old. The two had gotten into an argument earlier that day about her boyfriend allegedly trying to prostitute another 18-year-old woman. In the argument, her boyfriend allegedly grabbed her by the leg, pulling her towards him, and then proceeded to punch her in the face under the left eye. She said as he hit her, he was yelling and calling her names, saying she had to do what he told her to do, the police report states. She told police that her boyfriend of three years had also gotten her pregnant three times but during one pregnancy he kicked her and broke her ribs. He’s allegedly hit, spat and pulled a gun out and pointed it at her. The case has been forwarded to the prosecutor’s office. Boy threatens man with knife during litter argument: At 6:43 p.m. on July 19 in the 1900 block of S. Commons, a boy was arrested for pulling out a knife during an argu-

ment with a man. The initial argument started because a water cup was thrown in the area. After words were exchanged, the juvenile allegedly pulled a large pocket knife and threatened to cut the man. The boy attempted to flee before officers found him. Screaming man arrested: At 1:14 a.m. on July 18 in the 32400 block of 11th Place S., a man was arrested for walking down the middle of an intersection, yelling and screaming for help. The screaming caused several people to call 911. He was issued several warnings but refused to stop. Counterfeit bill at AM/PM: At 9:07 a.m. on July 18 in the 31800 block of Pacific Highway S., an AM/ PM cashier reported he was given a fake $100 bill. Police contacted the woman who tried to pay with it. In cooperation with police, she said she believed it came from a $1,300 jackpot payout she won in May at the Fife Emerald Queen Casino. She provided police the pay stub. Suspicious duffle bag: At 5 p.m. on July 18 in the 33000 block of 17the Place S., police responded to a report of a suspicious duffle bag. A man stated the duffle bag was littered with garbage and hypodermic needles, which were stuck into clothing in the bag. The bag was in front of the man’s condo for about two days. The police report states the bag has since been destroyed. Fake $100 bill at Trader Joes: At 11:40 a.m. on July 17 in the 1700 block of S. 320th St., a Trader Joes’ manager turned in a $100 counterfeit bill.

FEDERAL WAY BUSINESS DONATES FOOD TO 23 RESCUED SHARPEIS FROM STAFF REPORTS

Simply Paws, a Federal Way pet store, donated between 2,500 and 3,000 pounds of dog food to Sunny Sky Rescue. Sunny Sky’s Animal Rescue recently took in 23 sharpeis a family rescued from an unlicensed breeder in Issaquah. The couple that led the rescue effort, Kenny and Kristin Byrne, are customers at Simply Paws and asked for help caring for the dogs, said Simply Paws owner Jon Moore. Simply Paws didn’t have room to board the dogs, but donating food was something the local pet shop could do, Moore said. The dogs — 10 puppies under four months old and 13 dogs between 1 and 8 years old — were taken from filthy cages where they were kept with no exercise or vet attention. Twenty-two of the 23 dogs are available for adoption, with the youngest being kept for urgent, life-threatening care. For information on adoption, visit www.sunnyskyrescue.org

Caffe D’arte serves up artisan traditions at new headquarters BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ editor@fedwaymirror.com

D

ario Brancato kneels down and peers inside a small door on the wood-fired roaster, watching the flame lick the base of the drum. “See the fire touching the drum right there?” Brancato asks over the hum of roaster machinery at Caffe D’arte’s new Federal Way headquarters. “When I see the flame drop a little bit, I put the wood in there. There’s a lot of things to learn but the more you learn, the easier it is.” Brancato knows the technique of adding more alderwood to the Italian 1949 Balestra wood roaster at just the right time to prevent the fire from scorching the coffee beans, due to his 18 years with Caffe D’arte. The company specializes in real traditional Italian espresso, blended and roasted according to rigid artisan traditions. The coffee roaster and wholesaler moved to Federal Way in April after 27 years in South Seattle’s Georgetown area. Joe Mancuso, the company’s general manager, said the business was finally all moved in to the building last week after operating two facilities during the moving transition. Caffe D’arte and its nearly 60 employees moved to the former Orion Industries’ 35,900-square-foot building at 33926 Ninth Ave. S. The move more than doubles the company’s storage and roasting capacity. Mancuso’s brother-in-law Mauro Cipolla founded the company in 1985, after moving to Seattle from Italy, where he was an apprentice and learned how to roast and blend coffee. At that time, coffee giant Starbucks had a

sprinkling of stores. “When his family moved to the United States, one of the things they missed most was their cappuccino and espresso that they drank every morning,” Mancuso said. “They would go out and they would see, in their eyes, that it was dirty water, this drip coffee.” The company’s principal owner, Jeff Stock, became involved with Caffe D’arte in 2002, when he and partner Mark Schuur acquired the majority of the company. Federal Way was chosen for the company’s new headquarters because of Stock’s strong business ties to the area as CEO of Wild Waves Theme Park. Mancuso said Stock has helped the company grow from its roots as a “Seattlecentric company.” The company now owns four retail stores, including its longtime Seattle location, and others in Portland, Idaho and Bonney Lake. But the majority of Caffe D’arte’s customers — which range from approximately 1,200-1,500 — are independent operators from around the United States, making the wholesale brand available in local restaurants, cafes, bakeries and hotels. Federal Way customers include Wild Waves and Joe’s Deli, among others. Mancuso said one of Federal Way officials’ “big discussion points” before the move was air pollution. As a result, the company invested in three costly oxidizer systems that eliminate the smoke, odor and reduce the amount of air emissions the facility releases. In addition to the wood roaster, the company also employs three commercial roasters and two test systems.

Joe Mancuso, Caffe D’arte’s general manager, shows the company’s storage area with burlap sacks filled with coffee beans. The new site was partially chosen for its large space. CARRIE RODRIGUEZ, the Mirror. “We’re roasting, blending and packaging coffee five days a week. Nothing stays here longer than 72 hours,” Mancuso said, noting the company buys coffee direct from farmers the world over. When they receive new coffee, workers take bean samples and roast each one to five different colors. “Then we taste it and say, OK, the Brazilian that just came in, that’s going to replace the existing inventory.” He points to a 1986 Diedrich roaster, where a master roaster drops 55 pounds of coffee beans that just finished roasting from a drum into a cooling bin. “If you get close to it, you can hear a crackle,” Mancuso said, noting the sound indicates that the sugars in the beans are caramelizing. The crackle should happen when the beans drop into the cooling bin, not inside the drum. “If it happens outside, it’ll scorch and burn the coffee. The margin of having a

Little League teams fall short in state title games BY GREG ALLMAIN gallmain@fedwaymirror.com

T

he Federal Way National Little League 10/11 Softball AllStars, along with the Majors All-Stars, fought their way to the state championship game in their respective tournaments, according to a press release from the Federal Way National Little League organizers. The softball All-Stars managed a second-place finish on July 17, while the Majors All-Stars also finished in second place.

10/11 SOFTBALL ALL-STARS

The Softball All-Stars had a hard-fought battle on their way to the state title game, starting out with a 4-3 win in their first game, but losing their second game 13-11 to the team from the Snohom-

ish Little League. Wednesday saw the girls beat their counterparts from Redmond 8-6, which put them into the title game with a rematch against Snohomish. The girls again found themselves falling by two to Snohomish in the title game, 3-1. The team consists of Jesenay Agulto, Jenna Bettge, Chloe Barrier, Krailyn Guymon, Kaycie Haven, Christine Lee, Maclairen Magruder, Tiana McLarty, Peyton Miller, Faith Morris, Anna Swanson and Makena Togia. The team is managed by Tom Magruder and coached by Jessie Agulto and Neville McLarty.

MAJORS ALL-STARS

The Majors All-Stars continued to show they’re one of the toughest teams in the region on their way to

the state championship game on July 19 in West Seattle. The Majors started their run last weekend with a 12-5 win over the Richland team. The team hit five home runs in the game, two of which were in the six-run sixth inning. Sunday saw the team taking on the West Seattle Little Leaguers, and winning 8-4. In that game, the team peppered West Seattle with “one or two runs every inning,” according to the press release from the organization. Their next opponent was Pacific Little League. The game was close, 6-5, in the fifth inning, when the Majors exploded for seven runs. Twelve Majors players had an at-bat in the inning, and opened the game up with solid contact hitting, dinging Pacific with singles and doubles. The boys then took on the

Q&A with Mr. FW: School district messes up, blames Mirror Q : Mr. Federal Way, did you hear that a Federal Way Public Schools’ board member called the Mirror out during a meeting Tuesday for announcing the board meeting was moved to a new time and venue this week? What happened? A: Mr. Federal Way is glad you asked because Mr. Federal Way is concerned about board Director Claire Wilson’s comments too. As Mr. Federal Way goes through the chain of events that led to Wilson’s inappropriate comments, keep in mind a seemingly obvious role of a newspaper: to communicate information to the public. That said, on Monday as Mirror staff went to the district’s website to review the board agenda for Tuesday evening’s meeting, staff discovered that the board meeting was not scheduled for its regular time or place on Tuesday evening. The district posted an official notice on its website on July 18: “This notice is to officially inform patrons of the Federal Way Public

School District No. 210 and news media that the board of education will meet on July 22, as previously announced, for the school board meeting. However, this meeting will be held at 10 a.m. and will take place at the Federal Way City Hall at 33325 Eighth Ave. S., Federal Way,” by Superintendent Sally McLean. The Mirror was surprised the district did not communicate this information to the newspaper. The board was required by state law, RCW 42.30.080, to deliver a written notice to the Mirror about the meeting change. You see, last month the Mirror submitted a written request to the district to be notified of special meetings after the board held an unexpected meeting to interview candidates for a vacant position. The district also made a mistake and communicated the wrong information about when the board would select a candidate. So this time around, Mirror staff reached out to district staff to find out why the newspaper wasn’t notified

about the meeting change. Their excuse: staff forgot to notify the newspaper. In response, the Mirror posted a breaking news story online on Monday evening, notifying residents of the meeting change. We wanted to ensure residents got the message so late in the game. But strangely, Wilson pointed her finger at the Mirror during the meeting on Tuesday, saying, she was “alarmed yesterday at 5 o’clock to see breaking news that our meeting was suddenly at 10 o’clock here in the city chambers.” She noted the district has held July meetings in the morning for years. Yet, she also said those meetings have typically been held at the district offices. So the Mirror’s website posting directed people to the new location at City Hall. “I want to make sure we’ve got those open lines of communication but I also sometimes worry when the information that’s communicated isn’t necessarily accurate,” Wilson continued. Mirror staff were there to report on the televised meeting but could not respond. So the district thought the message was important enough to post an official notice about it, but ranted at the

FEAST $34.95 DUNGENESS CRAB

Mirror for posting the same information? Mr. Federal Way thinks this is a gross hypocrisy. And there was no inaccuracy in the information the Mirror posted, as the newspaper used the information we received from the district. Also, messages posted as breaking news don’t necessarily have to meet the-skyis-falling criteria. Sometimes the newspaper categorizes a message as “breaking news” when we want residents to prominently see an important notice or, in this case, a last-minute message. It appears our theory worked as Wilson saw the message, loud and clear. Perhaps Mr. Federal Way has already belabored the obvious — the school district messed up, again. Officials have dug the hole of miscommunication even deeper and are using scapegoating as infill. Mr. Federal Way also thinks district officials need to stop complaining about trivial things and get working on things that matter most, say, hiring a new superintendent or passing the budget. Q: Mr. Federal Way, I have some issues I would like to raise with the Federal Way school district

but I don’t have time to attend a board meeting. How should I raise these concerns? A: Why is Mr. Federal Way not surprised you have issues with the school district? See above question and answer. Well, a great way to let your issues be known in public would be to raise them during a school board meeting during a public comment period, however you’re only allotted three minutes. You may also write a letter to the editor, which would be published in the Mirror’s opinion section on a weekly basis. But a more direct way could be recently-appointed school board member Hiroshi Eto’s new Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ HEtoFWPS. Mr. Federal Way likes the way Mr. Eto has been handling his short time on the board and his advocacy for better communication. Perhaps his fellow elected leaders could learn something from him. Q: Mr. Federal Way, are you going to the Kiwanis Club’s salmon bake fundraiser on July 25? A: None of your business.

Man pleads not guilty to killing colleague at airport FBI asks for help BY RAECHEL DAWSON rdawson@fedwaymirror.com

A

Federal Way man pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to first-degree manslaughter charges after he allegedly slapped a Korean Airline manager, who died when he hit his head on concrete from the blow on July 6. Taumailelei Mapusua Jr., 27, is still being held on $1 million bail because he is

considered a flight risk due to having family in Nevada and Samoa. Mapusua allegedly got into an argument with victim Jason Keum at the SeaTac Airport on July 5. The two apparently disagreed about which piece of equipment to use to stabilize a cargo plane. Keum was the manager of Korean Airline and the suspect was a cargo handler employed by Integrat-

ed Airplane Services, the company Korean Airline uses to load and unload large body cargo airplanes. Mapusua told police he slapped Keum on the side of the face, which caused him to fall backwards and hit his head on reinforced concrete tarmac, a material used for surfacing roads. Keum lost consciousness and experienced a cracked skull and internal brain bleeding.

in finding bank robber FROM STAFF REPORTS

The FBI is seeking the public’s help to identify a man who robbed a Federal Way bank on July 18. The suspect robbed the Umpqua bank at 1900 S. 320th St. at approximately 5:30 p.m. According to the Federal Way police report, the man walked up to the teller and

A

handed over a note, which said to give him all of the $50 and $100 bills. He also noted he didn’t want any GPS tracking devices included. The teller handed over the money and he walked out with about $1,650 in cash. He is described as a white male in his 20s, approximately 5 feet, 7 inches, with a skinny build. Anyone with information that can help identify this suspect is asked to call the FBI at 206-622-0460 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-TIPS (8477).

Firewood, Fuel & Stoves

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. agr.wa.gov/inspection/ WeightsMeasures/Fire woodinformation.aspx agr.wa.gov/inspection/WeightsMeasures/Firewoodinformation.aspx

Caregiver of quadriplegic charged with indecent exposure Suspect could also face other charges, pending further investigation of alleged sexual assault of 27-year-old

A

Federal Way man was charged with one count of indecent exposure on Thursday for allegedly masturbating over a 27-year-old quadriplegic woman he cares for. Anthony Kenneth Martin, 50, could also face other charges, pending further investigation of alleged sexual assault. Martin’s bail was set at $75,000. Federal Way police were called to Martin’s residence around midnight on Saturday after his fiancée and her daughter called about an ongoing argument about the alleged crime. His fiancée went to grab dinner on July 18 but when she returned she walked in on him allegedly standing over the partially naked victim, masturbating, according to the police report. He is the main caregiver for the woman, who is quadriplegic and “mentally understands conversations as a child would,” the report continues. Martin quickly looked at his fiancée in surprise and told her he had been in the bathroom and thought he heard the victim fall, the report states. He allegedly zipped up his pants and walked outside, which his fiancée told police was a strange thing to do if he had indeed ran from the bathroom. As the fiancée told police this, she said she “wasn’t going to let it happen again where she acted ignorant and did nothing while [the victim] was abused.” Earlier in the month, she suspected Martin of “creeping” from their bed

and leaving the bedroom. She followed him one time without him knowing and looked into the victim’s room. She stated that she walked down the hallway and observed him with his back to the window, allegedly positioned behind the disabled victim with her buttocks by his groin area. Although the room was dark, she said she saw a gyrating motion but no other details. She called 911 about that incident but retracted her statement after Martin allegedly told her she would go to jail too if she told police anything. “He told her that he had done nothing wrong and that he would convince police that she was crazy,” the police report states. The woman told police she was terrified of her fiancé and of the possibility of going to jail so she complied. Although the victim is

developmentally disabled, she is receptive of conversation and aware of people speaking to her. Through a blinking system where one blink means yes and two means no, the man’s fiancée asked the victim if the suspect had sex with her, to which she allegedly blinked “yes,” according to the report. The fiancée also told police that the man allegedly often drinks and takes prescribed medication from her purse. When he’s under the influence, he is “out of control and a different person,” she said. Officers used the same communication method with the victim as they interviewed her. “I could tell the blinking was different from her natural blinking in that she held her eyelids shut slightly longer when she was answering me,” the officer wrote in the police report. “It seemed to me that it was obvious that she could understand me and answer me by blinking her eyes.” Because the woman lives with the suspect, Martin receives $5,000 a month from the state

Rabid bats are a risk in Washington FROM STAFF REPORTS

Rabid bats have been found throughout the state and continue to pose a risk to people and pets, especially during the summer when bats are more active. Five bats that were in contact with people or pets have tested positive for rabies so far this year. This is fairly normal, but health officials are hoping to raise awareness and keep this number low. “There’s an ongoing risk of people and pets interacting with wild animals, including rabid bats,” said Ron Wohrle, veterinarian at the Department of Health. “To help protect yourself and your pets, avoid contact with bats or wild animals and enjoy wildlife from a distance.” Though 1 percent of bats carry the rabies virus, people are more likely to come into contact with sick bats. Healthy bats usually avoid contact with people and animals and will not rest on the ground. Bats that fly erratically, come out during the day, or hang out on the ground or in bushes and otherwise act strangely may be rabid. Between 200 and 350 bats from Washington are tested each year following human or pet exposure — 5 percent to10 percent of these bats typically test positive for rabies. About 250 to 300 people per year in our state undergo a series of painful and expensive shots after they’ve had contact with a rabid bat or have been exposed to a potentially infected animal. Prompt preventive medication is crucial — rabies is deadly once a person or animal begins to show symptoms, yet it can be prevented with appropriate medical care. Bites or wounds from any animal should be washed right away with soap and water, and medical attention should be sought. Any bite, scratch, or other direct contact with a bat should be carefully evaluated by a health professional. Consultation is needed if a bat is found in a room with a small child, an intoxicated or mentally incapacitated person, or a sleeping

dollars. “We only get these dollars because our taxpayers committed to funding the project in the first place,” she said. “The yes vote triggers the construction assistance funding.” The amount approved by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction was greater than what the district had anticipated in 2012. According to Stenberg, the district was expecting approximately $27 million in statematched funds. Overall, the cost of the Federal Way High School renovation is $110 million. The levy passed in 2012 accounted for $60 of that $110 million. Outside of the newest round of Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction money, the district is also pulling $10.6 million, which was

person who cannot reliably be sure they were not bitten. Bat teeth are very small and a bite might not leave visible marks or be felt by a sleeping person. Call the local health agency in your community for help determining if any people or pets in your home may have been exposed. They can help arrange to test the bat for rabies, if needed, and provide advice on whether rabies preventive medications are necessary. Washington requires all cats, dogs, and ferrets be vaccinated for rabies. Pets are also at risk for infection when they encounter wild animals. Protecting pets by keeping their rabies shots current is an important buffer between the disease and people. Even indoor animals should be vaccinated, since rabid bats have been found inside homes where pets live. People should avoid contact with wildlife, and children should be taught not to touch animals they don’t know, even if it appears friendly.

State teen immunization rates show mixed results FROM STAFF RESULTS

It’s hard to believe, but school is right around the corner. Unfortunately, many teens in Washington state will start school unprotected from some diseases, including the cancer causing human papillomavirus (HPV). Only 12.5 percent of teen boys and 45 percent of teen girls had all three doses of the HPV vaccine, according to the 2013 National Immunization Survey for teens. There are two HPV vaccines. Both protect against HPV strains that cause 75 percent of cervical cancers. One also protects against HPV strains that cause 90 percent of genital warts in males and females. This vaccine isn’t required for school entry, yet back-to-school time is a good time for parents to make sure both young kids and teens have all the immunizations, required or not. Teens are due for several other important

left over from a 2007 bond measure, along with $12.4 million in state-matched funding that was associated with that same 2007 bond measure. Built in 1929, the current Federal Way High School shows its age. Structural problems with the building include poor plumbing, leaky roofs, inadequate lighting, extensive water damage and outdated restrooms that fail to comply with certain codes and regulations. The building has undergone multiple expansions over the years that created a security hazard with dozens of entrances/exits, along with poor accessibility for students.

immunizations other than HPV, including Tdap and meningococcal vaccines. The Tdap and meningococcal vaccines protect teens from getting whooping cough and meningitis. Tdap and meningococcal vaccine rates for teens aged 13–17 have increased over the last year. HPV vaccine rates have increased as well, but are still well below the national goal of 80 percent. “Immunizations are among the most effective ways to protect kids from serious and preventable diseases, some of which have no cure or treatment,” said state Health officer Kathy Lofy. “Take the opportunity to protect all your kids, regardless of age, from disease. If your child is at the doctor’s office for any reason, ask if he or she has received all recommended vaccines, including HPV.” Parents should use the next several weeks to make sure their kids have all the immunizations they need to begin school. They should also schedule a yearly health checkup and have their kids get any immunizations that are due. Data for younger kids will be released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in late August. The state’s immunization rates show that many young kids are vulnerable to vaccinepreventable diseases as well, such as measles and whooping cough. Outbreaks of these two diseases this year show the need for more kids to be protected. Several immunizations are required before kids can start school and child care. This year, kids in grades 6 to 12 must have had one dose of Tdap vaccine. This booster shot protects older kids against whooping cough. Young kids get a vaccine that prevents the same diseases, but protection starts to wear off in the early teen years. Kids starting kindergarten through sixth grade must get two doses of the chickenpox (varicella) vaccine or have a health care provider document that they’ve had the disease. Parent-reported history of chickenpox is not enough. Washington provides all recommended vaccines at no cost for kids through age 18, and they’re available from health care providers across the state. Although health care providers may charge an office-visit fee

and an administration fee for the vaccine, a family that can’t afford to pay can ask that the administration fee be waived. For help finding a health care provider or an immunization clinic, call your local health agency, visit the ParentHelp123 resource finder, or call the Family Health Hotline, 1-800-322-2588.

Regional leaders unite to reduce county greenhouse gas emissions FROM STAFF REPORTS

A regional planning council chaired by King County Executive Dow Constantine Thursday unanimously adopted targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in King County, an important step in the effort to confront climate change. The Growth Management Planning Council, which includes elected leaders from cities and the Metropolitan King County Council, also created measurements and reporting commitments. “To move the needle on climate change, we must have a coordinated approach that includes all levels of government working with businesses, nonprofits, and community partners,” said Constantine. “Climate pollution transcends political boundaries and so must our solutions. [This] action demonstrates our shared commitment to protecting our environment from the devastating impacts of greenhouse gases.” Against a baseline set in 2007, the Countywide Planning Policy adopted Thursday targets a reduction of countywide sources of greenhouse gas emissions of 25 percent by 2020, 50 percent by 2030, and 80 percent by 2050. King County will be responsible for assessment and reporting. The King County-Cities Climate Collaboration, convened by the executive earlier this year, has already established commitments that will help the planning council achieve its goals, with actions — including building standards, transit-oriented development, and clean fuels — that can be tailored to each city’s needs and interests.
