Woman leads effort to annex Lakeland South to Federal Way BY RAECHEL DAWSON rdawson@fedwaymirror.com

I

t started with the windstorm last November. Downed trees and branches greatly affected one unincorporated King County island just east of Federal Way. Cheryl Hurst, a resident of the Lakeland South area, said she tried to have King County service the streets

but was left with no answers. “There were people out with chainsaws because literally nobody could get out of their houses or into their houses,” Hurst said. “And a fair amount of them were county trees.” Rallying a Home Depot employee, her husband and a dumpster that a neighbor donated, Hurst helped clean up the area herself, noting that many of her neighbors

are elderly and couldn’t do it themselves. “I just couldn’t really understand,” she said. “We’re paying taxes, there’s no street lights in the area …” After a year-and-half of living in her newly-built lakeside home, Hurst has also noticed there’s seemingly no regulation when it comes to residents’ responsibility for the upkeep of their property, or lack thereof.

Sound Transits invites public comment on Link Extension project BY ANDREW FICKES For the Mirror

A light rail link extension, supported by the 2008 voter-approved Sound

Transit 2 funding package, is destined to reach the Kent/Des Moines station by 2023 from the South 200th Street Angle Lake Station in SeaTac (opening in 2016) — but what route it will take to get there is undecided. At a public hearing at the Federal Way Commu-

nity Center on Wednesday, residents and community business members had the opportunity to comment on the draft Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Federal Way Link Extension, which includes four route alternatives under consideration by the Sound Transit board of

directors. These four alignments comprise one along Highway 99; one along Interstate 5; a Highway 99 to I-5 alternative and an I-5 to Highway 99 alternative. Cathal Ridge, the Federal Way Link Extension project manager, said more than 21 station options were also

analyzed across the four routes. Jack Bermingham, president of Highline College in Des Moines, expressed his interest in the Highway 99 route, which includes a Kent/Des Moines Highline College campus station option. “First and foremost, light

rail needs to be about moving people,” Bermingham said. “Highline College is a destination. Employees and students come to the college. Seventeen thousand different people come to the college over the course of the year. Having the station either at the north end [ more TRANSIT, page 2 ]

or south end, ideally on the west side of 99, meets the needs of our people.” Bermingham said colleges like Highline provide equity and access for people from disadvantaged backgrounds. The president said not plac-

ing the station at the college would be a disservice to the equity and access benefit. Meanwhile, fast-food industry leader McDonald’s made its voice heard. Three people managing the South 320th Street and 23rd Avenue South McDonald’s

made public comment indicating the proposed I-5 alternative route would unfairly displace the business, affecting hundreds of employees who work and train at the restaurant. John Jackson, director of operations at the McDon-

According to the draft Environmental Impact Statement, the Highway 99 alternative would displace 104 business units, compared to 29 under the I-5 alignment. Projected cost for the Highway 99 and I-5 alternatives would be $1.77 billion and $1.42 billion, respectively. The council plans to adopt a resolution stating their preferred alternative route as early as May 19. The public comment period on the draft impact statement is through May 26. After collecting comments, the Sound Transit board plans to select a preferred alternative earlier this summer. Following this selection, a final impact statement will be prepared and published in mid-2016. The board will make their final selection of an alternative route and stations in late 2016. Ridge, the project manager, said ST2 funding authorized construction of the extension to the South 272nd station in Federal Way. Because of the deep recession, however, projected ST2 tax revenues were reduced by 28.5 percent or $4.9 billion. “South King County was hardest hit at a projected percentage loss of 38.5 percent or $1.7 billion,” said Sound Transit spokeswoman Kimberly Reason. This significant loss in

ald’s, said this particular location is very unique compared to other McDonald’s sites. Jackson said the restaurant serves as a regional training hub and employee orientation center. The Federal Way City Council held a special meeting on Tuesday, when they heard from Sound Transit representatives explaining the various route alternatives. Public comment on the alternatives was also taken. “My recommendation to the council is for an I-5 alignment with a station location that comes to our downtown,” Mayor Jim Ferrell told the Mirror in a phone interview. “I’m making this recommendation based on quite a number of factors that include cost and displacement of businesses and homes and the overall impact on Federal Way, but the final decision on the wording of the resolution will be the council’s and that is why public input is so important.” Ferrell said his recommendation stems from the city’s $100 million infrastructure improvements along Highway 99 over the past decade. “(That investment) would be disrupted if those tracks went down 99,” Ferrell added. “The cost would be at least $200 to $300 million more than an I-5 alignment.”

funding meant ST2 would only be able to fund construction of the extension from the Angle Lake station to the Kent/Des Moines station by 2023, which equates to approximately 2.5 miles. To make up for the deficit, Sound Transit is asking the state Legislature for more funding authority in order to authorize placement of a new $15 billion bond package on the ballot in late 2016. A third bond measure would ultimately bring the extension to South 272nd. The end goal, Ridge said, is to eventually bring the extension to the Federal Way Transit Center and then past that to Tacoma. Ridge said the public comment period is an important piece to carrying out the project. “We’ve been very motivated to be more graphical, more interactive and to reach out to everyone in the corridor,” he said. “Very often we find (it’s best to connect) with more recent arrivals to the area through forums they’re familiar with.” These include churches and a variety of social service providers. Ridge said they’re willing to do outreach with any group willing to listen and learn about the project and provide comment. “It’s a complex project, and there are a lot of alternatives and lots of tradeoffs,” Ridge said. Because of the project’s complexity, Sound Transit is ensuring all voices are heard. This means providing translators at public hearings that include Korean, Vietnamese, Russian, Spanish and Somali. The public is encouraged to visit federalwaylink.org to learn more about the Federal Way Link Extension project, watch an interactive video that explains the alternative routes, submit comments or read the draft impact statement.

just in time for prom season. “We thought what a wonderful service this would be for all the senior high school girls in our district,” Edmonson said, who is also the academic advisor for the school’s dance team. “We want this to be a place to empower our young women, allow them to experience prom or homecoming when maybe they otherwise couldn’t afford to.” Meagan’s Closet is open to all high school senior girls in the Federal Way Public Schools district. Storvick, a personal finances teacher, said she typically asks her students if they are going to prom and has determined about 30 percent say they can’t go because it’s too costly. “I actually did a lesson and that was one of the examples for spending plans and being a smart shopper — the example was that a prom dress is $100,” Storvick said. “And then one, of course, one of the girls said, ‘Well who uses those again?’ I’m like, ‘Meagan’s Closet does!’” The space for the dresses was once an office but teachers mainly used that room for its copy machine, Edmonson said. After getting approval to use the room, Storvick and Edmonson got to work.

They sought donations from fellow students and from their daughters who had no use for their old homecoming and prom dresses. “My daughter was going to nursing school down in North Carolina at Duke and she went ahead and told some of her fellow students and when she graduated this December, we brought a whole huge suitcase of 12 dresses that people she went to school with out there said, ‘We’d love to donate our dresses,’” Edmonson said. “So it has just started to grow.” With help from Umpqua Bank’s $1,000 donation and another $200 from Mary Kay dealer Cheri Hardman, the teachers stocked the closet with accessories, decorations, a mirror and bench so that girls feel comfortable when they shop. Coming up with the name for their loaning closet was hard at first but then it was a no-brainer. “We were coming up with different names … and I was on my way home and it just came to us,” Edmonson said. “We can call it Meagan’s Closet. What a great tribute it would be to her because she was so involved.” Meagan Jones, a 2009 Decatur High School alumna, passed away at the age of 23 from cancer. Her parents, Beth and

Tom Jones, who were also at the grand opening of Meagan’s Closet, said their daughter was involved in leadership, Distributive Education Clubs of America and was the grade checker for basketball but her real interest was in helping children at the YMCA as a youth leader. Struggling with diabetes since the age of 8, Meagan Jones was in and out of the hospital for a few days with a condition called diabetic ketoacidosis. She attended Highline College for two years after high school and transferred to Central Washington University. That’s when they became aware of other health issues. “She went to school and she got a side ache,” her mother recalled. “Instead of getting better, it got worse,” Tom Jones added. “The doctor pressed on her stomach a few times and said, ‘Oh, we’re going to the ER’ and five days later they took a big fist-size tumor out of her colon.” After surgery and treatments, she was pronounced cancer free. Meagan Jones even reflected on her struggles in a video as she held up signs with words, “To say it hit me like a ton of bricks would be an understatement,” and “Giving up is not an option … You pray because only

HE can understand. You fight because you know you can. You never give up because it is not an option.” She wrote she was determined she would not be the 80 percent who didn’t survive that form of cancer. Meagan Jones got to spend time living in a house with her girlfriends, studying sociology and psychology at Central to one day be a counselor for children. She got to “really experience being over there,” her father said. She had about seven months of a “normal life” until her family discovered the doctor’s news was premature. In March 2013, doctors discovered another tumor in her ovaries. Although both of her ovaries were removed, the cancer moved to her stomach. “It was all over the place,” Tom Jones said. “She lived another year. She came back. We first found out in late March, and she passed away the next March, which was a year ago.” He said Meagan’s Closet would be something his daughter would be so much in favor of. “It’s nice, and I mean there are plenty of gals who just can’t afford a dress that looks like a dress …,” Tom Jones said. “The whole culture now is you go out in

RAECHEL DAWSON, the Mirror a limo and $250 dinner and I mean that, quite frankly, is ridiculous and it puts pressure on [students].” Beth Jones said some of her daughter’s high school dance dresses were donated to the loaning closet. “She didn’t really pick anything, she didn’t go overboard,” she said. “She could find inexpensive dresses until prom — she was on the court during prom her senior year.” Captain of Decatur’s dance team Alyssa Anderson said she would hate for anyone to not have the fun experiences of a dance just because of money. “I’ve tried on some of the dresses and want to borrow them,” Anderson said. “… The more dresses we obtain, the more variety.” Also, privacy is key.

To set up a private appointment to shop for a dress (sizes 0-24), high school seniors in Federal Way should contact Carol Edmonson at cedmonso@ fwps.org, Genie Storvick at gstorvic@fwps.org or call Decatur at 253-945-5383. Dresses are reserved using only the student’s school identification number. Dresses are expected to be returned one week after the school dance they are worn for. Organizers of Meagan’s Closet are still seeking dress donations, monetary donations and business services — such as dry cleaning or hairstyling. To help Meagan’s Closet grow, contact Carol Edmonson at cedmonso@fwps.org or Genie Storvick at gstorvic@ fwps.org.

Family-owned lumber yard to close after 60 years in business BY HOLLY THORPE UW News Lab

N

ew Lumber and Hardware, one of the oldest family-owned businesses in Federal Way, will close its doors this summer after 60 years of operation. It’s the end of an era for co-owners and brothers Jim and Bill Eichholtz. “Four weeks from now when I see a bare shelf it’s going to start hitting me,” Bill Eichholtz said. “It’s losing something very dear and very much a part of you.” Both brothers said the closure wasn’t entirely unexpected — things have been slowing down for a decade. “Kind of the history of ... our going out of [business] sale really started in 1995 when Home Depot opened in Federal Way,” Jim Eichholtz said. “Not that we were thinking of going out of business then, but as I look back that was the first

problem.” On top of the arrival of a nearby chain hardware store came the dot-com bust of 2000 and the 2008 recession. In 2009, their business suffered due to long-term roadwork in front of the store. “That really hurt us, and we never really recovered from that. And then, I got old,” he said. The brothers began a liquidation sale on April 30, with red and yellow signs blaring the same ominous messages: “Everything must go!” and “Store closing sale!” Shoppers who have supported the family-owned business have been coming in surprised. Mike Chapman, a homeowner who has been shopping there for 20 years, said he tries to support local businesses for the relationships he forms there. “For New Lumber and Hardware, if you went and bought some lumber out [ more LUMBER, page 5 ]

of the yard there’d always be somebody to help you load it, and you get to pick your boards,” Chapman said. “I had to go get some plywood yesterday and I had to pretty much load it all by myself because there’s no one at Home Depot to do it.” Steve Tinsley, who operates Tinsley Construction, has worked with the store for 25 years. He said he prioritizes local businesses over corporate entities. “I’ll be sad to see that go, but I’m glad for them,” Tinsley said. “Jim gets to retire and do some of the things he wanted to do. … Jim and Bill are probably two of the best people you could ever know in your whole life,” he said. “It’s hard to find anybody else in the whole world that’s nicer than they are.” At 66, Jim Eichholtz expects to retire. It’s been 40 years since he last had a Saturday off, or two weeks of vacation, he said. “Not that it’s sad, not that I’d change anything,” he said. “I did try to make most of my kids’ ball games and I got to a lot of them, but if it was a Little League game on a Saturday afternoon, I probably didn’t make that one. There is some freedom to owning your own business, but not much.” His brother, however, still has a career ahead of him — he’s just not thinking about it yet. “My heart and soul have been solely into this business and until this is done and gone, I can’t even think about what is next,” Bill Eichholtz said. ”After this is done and gone I’m going to be emotionally and physically drained and I will need some time off.”

because there was not a lot of population to support them.” Philip Eichholtz died in 2013. “He was a smart guy and he knew business,” Bill Eichholtz said. “He worked extremely hard, harder than Jim and I ever worked at it — but we’ve also worked extremely hard.” The housing boom of the ‘60s and ‘70s and work with local contractors until the mid-1990s made the business a success, but it was an apartment building project in Sand Point, Alaska, that was their largest-ever sale more than 25 years ago. “We put in kitchen sinks and bathroom sinks and toilets because they didn’t have anything in Sand Point,” Jim Eichholtz said. “That was the biggest sale I’ve ever made.” The job totaled around $100,000. Fast forward to today and the business mostly helps with remodels and repairs, albeit a variety of them. After 2008, fewer homes were built and the number of contractors dwindled. Ten years ago the store made 20 sales in the first hour of business, and it’s down to around three now, Jim Eichholtz said. “A lot of the homeowners only come to us when they have a problem,” he said. “What we did 20 years ago is different than what we’re doing today.” For Bill Eichholtz, his takeaway from the closure of New Lumber and Hardware is that it’s important to maintain local businesses. “The thing is, if you like a store or like a business, you need to support that place or you may lose it,” he said. “And once it’s gone, it’s gone.”

How council, mayoral, legislative races unfolding If it weren’t for the City Council meetings, all of us political junkies would be bored. But not to worry, the stakes are so high, the elections are about to get much more interesting. Politically speaking, it is going to be a long hot summer. The headliner remains the race between appointed Democratic incumbent state Rep. Carol Gregory and first-time candidate, Republican Teri Hickel. Both candidates are nice people who will likely try and keep the race clean. But special interest groups backing each candidate won’t follow the same path. Democrats desperately need to hang on to the seat to keep control of the House of Representatives through the 2016 legislative session and Republicans can almost taste a change in power coming their way. It could be the most expensive legislative race in state history and will certainly be among the most contentious. Gregory is more knowledgeable on the issues, so Hickel will need to be a quick study. The fall debates are important for each candidate’s credibility. The next biggest story may be whether Mayor Jim Ferrell comes out of the council elections stronger or weaker. The council races will start to heat up as four challengers try to win their first election. Cliff Mark Greene and Anthony Murrietta are both in the race against appointed incumbent Lydia

Assefa-Dawson, although Greene may switch and run against Mark Koppang who is unopposed. Koppang has run before and has worked hard to increase his visibility in the community. If Greene does switch he will have to take the race seriously or it won’t be close. A Greene switch helps Murrietta as he and Assefa-Dawson can focus on each other. Both are Democrats, but while Assefa-Dawson will lose some Democratic support for her endorsement of Republican Mark Miloscia in his Senate race last year, it will also get her Republican votes. She is the front runner and has a compelling personal story, but if she wants to be retain her seat, clarity on policy positions and political parties are important. Voters want to know where the candidates stand. Murrietta is usually pretty clear about his views and will likely challenge her on her opposition to marijuana and hesitant support of voter decisions, to establish a difference and give voters a reason to vote for him. P.K. Thumbi hasn’t been particularly visible since his announcement of running against incumbent Dini Duclos. Duclos has run enough times to know she can wait and make a move when she needs to. But as a first-time candidate, Thumbi is expected to be more visible. The lack Bob Roegner

Why would more than 7,500 vote against the South King Fire and Rescue bond? Is it because these citizens hold their personal safety in such low regard that they are unwilling to pay a mere $6.50 a month for long overdue upgrades? Or perhaps, as Chief Al Church suggested, maybe these people were confused by a ballot with two public safety measures. Another theory for these no votes, as suggested by Captain Jeff Bellinghausen, was that the “opposition” misled voters with “half-truths and exaggerations.” In addition to being somewhat insulting, suggesting that voters were careless, confused or gullible still doesn’t explain why South King Fire leadership has been unable to pass a bond in the last 20-plus years. Always the optimist, Church responded to news of yet another loss by saying, “We’ll regroup and come back with another plan. What that plan is, I’m not sure.” Having co-authored the opposition statement in the voters’ pamphlet, I’m sure I’m the last person from whom South King Fire wants to take advice for their new plan. However, I have spoken with 100 or so people who voted no to ask them why. If the fire district has any hope of breaking their losing streak, a losing streak that is hurting our entire community, they should probably start here. Concern No. 1: Why fire trucks? According to data provided by Valley 911, each South King Fire station responds to an average of 10 fires and 180 medical or service calls every month. If the district is going to 18 non-fire calls for every fire call, why not respond with something smaller than a fire truck? This also begs the related question of why the district insists on taking fire trucks to the grocery store, which happens a minimum of 12 times a month. If the trucks are really so worn out and so desperately in need of replacement, why not leave them at the station and just send one person in a car to get groceries? If there is a fire while getting groceries, why couldn’t this one person just meet the others at the scene? Concern No. 2: Why fire trucks? This isn’t a typo. Why do we need so many giant fire trucks? How many fires last year couldn’t have been handled by the much smaller (and less expensive) rapid response vehicles being used around the world? Do we really need full size, gas guzzling, $500,000 fire trucks, let alone a dozen of them? Why not respond to the thousands of non-emergency calls each [ more JARVIS, page 20 ]

Council should ban marijuana sales in city At the recent City Council meeting, under the direction of the mayor, they voted to put the question of having marijuana shops in Federal Way to an advisory vote of the people.

The founding fathers thoroughly understood the fatal weaknesses of a pure democracy and warned against the populace attempting to manage all public business. James Madison said, “Refine and enlarge the public views by passing them through the medium of a chosen body of citizens whose wisdom may best discern the true interest of their country.” We have a democratic republic and our city is our chosen body. It is the council’s job to establish law and policy and to do what is right for the people of Federal Way (per a statement on

the city website). We elected them to deal with city matters that cannot be dealt with well by the people. The issue of whether or not to open marijuana shops in our community clearly falls under this jurisdiction. The dangers of recreational drugs are well known. We all know people who have been negatively impacted; yet, widespread misinformation about marijuana abounds. The National Institute for Drug Abuse reports that use among youth is dramatically higher in Washington since the legalization of marijuana. Teachers, policeman and

others in our schools are already noticing the effects. Making recreational marijuana more accessible will similarly increase its use. We will see many preventable problems escalate in our community if we legitimize it by opening shops. This is risky business. We need to pay attention to accurate information and study it carefully. Recent studies show a tripling of marijuana-related traffic deaths, an increase in serious brain damage and psychosis, neurosis and anxieties of all kinds. Repeated marijuana use creates an inability to concentrate and function normally, shortens the lifespan, creates birth [ more LETTER page 19 ]

LEGISLATURE HONORS THE CHAMPS

April 22 was Federal Way High School boys’ basketball day in Olympia. The student-athletes who brought the 4A state hoops championship trophy to Federal Way this year were recognized for their achievement at the state Capitol. In an informal ceremony in the historic State Reception Hall, the boys and their coach Jerome Collins were presented with a framed copy of House Resolution 4633, which was sponsored by state Reps. Carol Gregory, D-Federal Way and Linda Kochmar, R-Federal Way, and unanimously approved on April 1. State Sen. Mark Miloscia, R-Federal Way, authored a similar resolution that was presented to them by the Senate. “I’m so proud of these young men,” Gregory said, “and I salute them and the Eagles’ coaching staff, led by coach Collins. Their athletic skills are obviously outstanding. But as a former teacher, I have to say I’m even more impressed by the fact that their academic achievements are also at the championship level.” “This team is one more example of how resilient our Federal Way community is,” Kochmar said. “I’m so proud of the team’s and coaching staff’s accomplishments this season. Their success is proof that hard work and dedication really does pay off.” “The determination to come together and overcome adversity is what set this team apart,” said Miloscia, sponsor of the Senate resolution. “There are few teams that earn the recognition of the Legislature, but the perseverance, leadership and teamwork demonstrated by Coach Collins and his team of talented young men is a testament to a championship mentality of winning in the right way.”

Decatur manager is the heart of the baseball team BY TERRENCE HILL thill@fedwaymirror.com

B

randon Jackson has been a member of the Decatur baseball team longer than any of the other kids who currently play. Anyone who has looked into the Gators’ dugout over the last five years has likely seen him. In those five years, Jackson has been there to help get the team’s equipment in order, help clear bats off the field after an at-bat and provide support to all of his teammates throughout the games. Jackson is a student with disabilities. Those disabilities have not kept him away from the game he loves the most. “When I was little, my dad would come home and I’d sit on his lap and watch the Mariners,” Jackson said. “I’ve loved baseball ever since I could throw, hit or catch a ball.” While managers are often overlooked as members of many teams, Decatur players will be quick to say this is not the case with Jackson. He is known as “B-Jack” to players, coaches and fans. “He does a lot for the team honestly,” Decatur senior

Brandon Jackson sports his number 11 uniform with his name stitched on the back. Jackson has been a manager with Decatur for the past five seasons. TERRENCE HILL, the Mirror Taylor Havilcek said. “He keeps our heads up, he keeps our hearts high. In bad situations, he’s always positive.” “He pretty much does everything for the team,” Decatur junior Kaden Jacobs said. “It’s not just the little things like picking up the bats, he’s

a motivator. He just brings people up all the time.” Many would assume Jackson is just another player on the team. He is rarely found without a smile in the dugout. His relationships with the players also extend beyond

just baseball. Jacobs says that before every game, Jackson is there with a pack of Mambas for him and during the fall was often over at his house to watch football. He also has a close relationship with Danny Graham, head baseball coach for Federal Way High School, who is his youth pastor. “He just means the world to the players and the school,” Decatur assistant coach John Sugg said. “He’s a real inspiration to everybody. He has a real passion for baseball and comes out here and donates his time. It’s been really nice for him to give that time to us and support that love and passion that he has.” Sugg’s son who plays for a youth baseball team in the area and Jackson have built a friendship as well. Jackson can often be found at their practices helping out. While Jackson has a deep love for baseball, his school is also at the top of the list. “My favorite part about Decatur is how we get along with everyone,” Jackson said. “We get along with everyone. We show people our heart. We care for people around our community.” While he is unable to play

for the Decatur baseball team, Jackson is a member of a Special Olympics softball team for Pierce County Friends and Athletes in Tacoma during the summer. He is a third baseman for the team. “I like it, it’s the hot corner,” Jackson said. “I hit the ball pretty well too.” He has been playing for three years now. Jackson graduated from Decatur last year. He is currently still attending the Puget Sound Skills Center through the district. His plans for the future include attending Highline College. Baseball will still be a big focus for him as he would like to get into the business side of the sport, such as ticket sales and marketing. “He just wishes he could be out there in the field with us,” Havilcek said. “We help him as much as he helps us and it’s tremendous how much he does for us.” Decatur is the sixth seeded team out of the South Puget Sound League this year going into the West Central District playoffs. Jackson will be there, as he almost always is, helping and cheering his friends on to state.

Late rally not enough for Beamer against Puyallup BY TERRENCE HILL

thill@fedwaymirror.com

I

t was a familiar matchup for the Titans in their game Wednesday night. The matchup for the No. 1 seed in the South Puget Sound League for district playoffs saw them play their former South division foe, the Puyallup Vikings. The game started rough for Beamer, who found themselves down two runs in the top of the first inning. As the game wore on, things began to click, but not soon enough. Beamer senior JJ Asinas took to the mound for the Titans for the first time in over a month. It took a few innings before he could shake the rust off. A hit, a walk, a hit batter and an error all contributed to Puyallup taking a quick 2-0 lead in the top of the first. It may not have seemed like it at the time, but the game-changing play occurred in that first inning. With runners on first and third for Puyallup and one out, they sent their Uni-

versity of North Carolina bound catcher, Brandon Illies, from first to second on what seemed like a botched steal attempt. The steal was actually a diversion as Asinas stepped off the mound and caught Illies in a run down. It was at that time that Puyallup’s Zach Needham took off from third towards home. In the confusion of the moment, Asinas settled on tagging out Illies, while Needham crossed the plate. Things got a bit better for Beamer defensively in the second inning as they only gave a couple hits, but no runs. Puyallup would add another run on an Illies single in the top of the third. Beamer struggled to figure out Puyallup’s lefthanded pitcher Christopher Micheles for most of the game. Through six innings, the Titans only managed four hits and two walks against the University of Washington commit. Even with a couple hits in the first two innings, Beamer was only one over the minimum through the third inning. A second

The controversial Max Dalrymple strikeout when it was ruled he hit Brandon Illies’s mitt, which did not allow the runners to advance in the bottom of the seventh. TERRENCE HILL, the Mirror inning play that illustrated their luck saw a line drive hit directly into Micheles’s glove, allowing him to throw out the runner on first as well. Despite their struggles early in the game, the Titans did not give in and began a rally in the bottom of the seventh inning. After a hit and a walk with no outs, Beamer had more life than they had all

night. The first out came when Max Dalrymple struck out. There was a bit of controversy on the play as the catcher was unable to hold on to the pitch and the runners moved up to second and third. Instead it was ruled that Dalrympe’s bat knocked it out of the catcher’s mitt. They still managed to move up on a wild pitch by Micheles. Puyallup brought

on the hard throwing Leif Strom to close out the game. Strom struck out Chaz McKenzie to get to two outs. Beamer’s Jalen Prather provided the spark that the Titans were looking for as he lined a pitch back up the middle and brought home Jayshawn Ware and Tommy Davis to bring the score to 3-2.

[ BASEBALL from page 8]

Beamer’s talented senior Ben Arata was the next batter up. Prather was able to move up to second on a steal, but on a 3-2 count, Arata struck out swinging to end the game. Puyallup was awarded the top seed from the South Puget Sound League for district playoffs, while Beamer played Kentwood on Thursday after the Mirror’s deadline for the second and third seed game. Beamer will play May 12 against Rogers at Heritage Field with a win over Kentwood or against Timberline at Foss High School if they lose to

Kentwood. Both games would be winner to state games.

DECATUR THE SIXTH SEED FROM THE SPSL

It was a tough couple of games for Decatur. On Tuesday they played Rogers for the fourth seed in the South Puget Sound League. After falling behind 1-0 in the first inning, they managed a run in the bottom of the sixth to tie it back up at 1-1. The seventh inning saw them give up two more runs to the Rams. They managed to get one run back in the bottom half of

would break through the back line. Seniors for Jefferson played much of the game. They were all subbed out late in the game to a standing ovation from their fans as they walked off the pitch. “With all the history we have here, it’s an honor defending eight state titles,” Jefferson senior Paul-Andrew McCleary said. “You gotta keep that in mind every single game and remember you represent more than just the team and yourself.” Jefferson was the more aggressive team as they looked to keep pressure on for the full 80 minutes. Decatur slowed down the pace late in the game, preferring to counterattack. Neither side was able to break through as the game wore on. The Raiders came close in the waning minutes of the game, but a shot after a free kick only managed to bounce off the crossbar. Decatur cleared it out the back for a corner kick, but Jefferson was unable to the inning, but could not manage more than that as they fell 3-2. The loss meant they had to play Tahoma for the fifth and sixth seed game. They fell 9-3 on Wednesday locking them into the sixth spot out of the SPSL. They will play Puyallup in the first round of the West Central District playoffs on May 12 at Art Wright Field in Kent. The game’s start time is at 7:00 p.m. The winner of that matchup will qualify for the state playoffs. The loser will need to win two consecutive games to advance to the state playoffs.

capitalize there either. Throughout the game, there were hard sliding and standing tackles by both teams, which caused emotions to run high for a few players. A couple of yellow cards were handed out and the ref directly talked to a few players. The draw kept Decatur’s postseason hopes alive for one game longer, but that ended on Tuesday when they lost 3-0 to Todd Beamer in their final regular season game. Jefferson’s hopes of winning the division were dashed by the draw. They were cemented in the second spot in the SPSL Northwest standings and the third place spot in the entire league’s North division. “With our history we have, our goal is to always be No. 1 and try to go as far as we can at state,” McCleary said. “These last two games we’ve had are just us looking into the future and trying to get ready for that.” Jefferson will play

Spanaway Lake, the fourth seed from the SPSL South, to open district playoffs. The game is on May 12 at 7:00 p.m. at French Field in Kent. The winner will play Mount Rainier on May 14

at 8 p.m. at Curtis High School. The loser will be eliminated. In order to advance to the state playoffs, they will need to win two consecutive games.

ecatur and Jefferson both had plenty at stake going into their matchup on Saturday. Decatur looked to inch their way closer to a postseason berth, while Jefferson hoped to stay alive in the race for the South Puget Sound League Northwest crown. The teams were physical from the start of the match. Opportunities to score

came quickly, but neither team was able to capitalize. The Raiders had trouble getting past Gator goalkeeper Jose Barbosa, who made a few diving saves on close-range chances. The same could be said for Jefferson senior goalkeeper Connor Thompson. While only having to make one diving save that sent the ball just wide of the net, Thompson was solid while standing up and playing the ball when Decatur looked like they

Decatur’s Tyler Swanson originally drove in the tying run in the bottom of the sixth for Decatur against Rogers. The Gators fell 3-2 in the game. TERRENCE HILL, the Mirror

around the corner on Sunday, the market will also offer special items for mothers, including a drawing for a Starbucks coffee basket, free reusable shopping bags (these will be available all season long) and flower bouquets, jewelry and other gifts for sale. The market will welcome several new additions this year, including vendors featuring new products by Nature’s Kiss and Brow Threading. New to the food court this year is the Frying Dutchman food truck that will serve up fish tacos and other delightful fish dishes, Oyatsu that will offer Japanese fare with dumplings and yakisoba noodle dishes, Freedom Snacks gourmet popcorn and Black Bear Diner will serve up a burger basket for lunch on some Saturdays throughout the season. New vendor Fernandez Farms will also sell fresh and local vegetables and fruits. New this year, Americorps will assist with the market’s free kids booth, sponsored by BECU. Americorps will facilitate face painting, coloring contests, activities such as hula hoops and bubbles, and will hand out stick-

ers and bookmarks. Also, for the first time this year, Decatur High School’s FFA students will sell the plants they produced in the school’s greenhouse. While they won’t have a booth at the market until June, Decatur students will soon offer a large variety of annuals, perennials, vegetable starts, hanging baskets and more. “The goal is to promote local agriculture and give students opportunities to gain work experience through my classroom,” said the school’s agricultural sciences teacher Dan Tedor, who started the school’s agricultural program this year. “I can’t find a better way for students to connect to the community and educate others about the importance of agriculture — and knowing where your food comes from. Students have grown all these plants from the start and will be able to see the end product.” All proceeds from the students’ sales will go directly back into the school program so Tedor can purchase materials for next year. Farmers Market patrons can also expect to see some of their favorite returning vendors this

Q&A with Mr. FW: PACC sharpshooters aim for federal funding

Q

: Mr. Federal Way, I’m concerned about the funding for the soon-to-be-built Performing Arts and Conference Center. The city has identified several funding streams, which is great. But I’m troubled by all the grants and funds the city hopes to get their hands on, including the $7.2 million of federal funding. What is this federal funding and what are the city’s odds of obtaining that kind of money? A: Mr. Federal Way enjoys swanky hotels and casinos once in a while, especially during special getaways with Mrs. Federal Way. But he is not too much of a betting man outside of the casino. Mr. Federal Way is unwilling to put his money on the red or black to guess whether or not the city will be awarded the money. However, the good news is city officials enjoy

roulette. They have placed $7.2 million worth of hope on the black and are holding their breath to see where the ball falls when the wheel stops. Their gamble began in 2013, when the city began exploring a federal tax incentive program called new market tax credits. Congress established the program in 2000 to spur new investments into businesses and real estate projects in low-income areas. Federal Way officials knew from the beginning that applying for the program would be a competitive process. Nevertheless, preliminary discussions the city had with others familiar with the program revealed that the arts center was a strong candidate to qualify for the program. The city

said it had a “better than 50/50 chance” of getting the funding and placed their bet. The city later tweaked the arts center project in 2014 as the council approved making the project property an economic redevelopment zone. The move was meant to help the city better qualify for and thus secure the federal tax credits. But a hiccup in 2014 delayed the potential federal funding. The city missed out on the “first tier” of 2014 funding allocations but was still in the running for “second tier” allocations. They missed that round too. Now, the city is getting aggressive with securing the potential $7.2 million in federal tax credits this year.

And it appears city officials enjoy the swanky hotel life too. In January, Mayor Jim Ferrell, Chief of Staff Brian Wilson and Economic Development Director Tim Johnson traveled to San Diego for the Novogradac New Markets Tax Credit Conference. They rubbed elbows with multiple community development entities and pitched their arts center project for a shot at the funds. The city is also considering a Native American culinary arts institute for the arts center, which has caught the attention of community development entities because of the institute’s potential impact in Federal Way in regard to educating the public about healthy living. And if that’s not enough, Johnson went to Los Angeles in late April to pitch the Performing Arts and Conference Center to one of the largest community development

entities that is responsible for distributing new market tax credits. “At this conference, there is almost every CEO of banks and financial institutions who are interested in this upcoming allocation of new market tax credits,” Wilson said during the April 21 council meeting, noting that the city has identified a new market tax credit consultant and “the best legal talent” who will assist Federal Way in securing the funds. Those consultants will get a percentage of whatever federal funding they bring in. Mr. Federal Way wonders how much of a cut they will get. And the cost of plane tickets and hotel stays are racking up, as the city also plans two more trips during the next month to Miami, Florida and Washington, D.C. to again market Federal Way’s project. In addition, the city has submitted nine applications for the federal funding, significantly upping the ante. Mr. Federal Way applauds the city for pushing hard this year for the federal funding, which the federal government will allocate in mid-June. “We’ve done a 360-degree circle on what we did last year,” said the city’s Finance Director Ade Ariwoola during the April 21 meeting, adding that last year, the city only submitted one application for the funding. But getting back to your question — what are the odds the city will get this money? According to the United States Department of Treasury, since the new market tax credit’s inception 15 years ago, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund has made 836 awards, allocating a total of $40 billion in tax credit authority to community development entities. To put that in perspective, 310 community development entities applied for allocations in 2013, requesting a total of approximately $25.9 billion. However, only 87 entities were awarded a total of $3.5 billion in funding. So only 28 percent of the total applicant pool received funding. In 2014, Federal Way was one of 263 applicants

across 44 states seeking an aggregate total of $19.9 billion in federal funding, according to the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund’s website. Only $5 billion in tax credit allocation was available for the 2014 round. So the odds are low — certainly below the 50/50 chance the city has previously boasted, Mr. Federal Way thinks. However, Mr. Federal Way feels reassured that the city has done many things to ensure they succeed in receiving the federal funding. And if they don’t get the money, the city does have a backup plan — albeit a more costly one — to get the funds from bonding. Mr. Federal Way will see where the ball falls in mid-June and if the city’s efforts will be worth it, or all for naught. Q: Mr. Federal Way, I saw during the last council meeting that a new deputy chief was sworn in. What happened to that “Top Shot” guy? A: Indeed, new Deputy Chief Stephan Neal was sworn in on Tuesday. But Federal Way’s reality TV star has not left the building. The History Channel’s “Top Shot” contestant Kyle Sumpter is still the city’s deputy chief. Two deputy chiefs, you say? Neal’s promotion was part of the department’s reorganization that Chief of Police Andy Hwang proposed in the 2015/16 budget. The two deputy chiefs split the organization, by responsibility. Sumpter leads the Field Operations Division; Neal leads the Support Services Division. Mr. Federal Way welcomes Neal in his new role and is appreciative that the sharpshooting Sumpter is still on the force to protect our community. Q: Mr. Federal Way, I heard the city staff that are working to put together the city’s upcoming 25th anniversary celebration in June was considering some sort of a hog hunting competition. Is this true? A: None of your business.

of Federal Way and King County, Hurst determined the petition method would be the way to go. There have since been three public meetings for the community to learn more about annexing to Federal Way, with the most recent on Thursday. For the most part, she’s received positive feedback.

PRO-ANNEXATION

Mark Thompson, a South King Fire and Rescue fire commissioner, has lived in the Five Mile Lake area since 1978 and shares some of Hurst’s beliefs about why they should annex to Federal Way. “The city is much more responsive to the needs of their citizens than the county is,” Thompson said. “… Police services, by a yardstick, are ahead of the county. We’ve got two officers that patrol the west side of I-5 and if one of those officers is transporting a prisoner, then we only have one. Federal Way has a whole bunch of officers that respond and do the patrol and stuff life that.” Hurst noted her neighbors have had their homes and cars broken into and the sheriffs didn’t responded in a timely manner. “So if you have a car accident or anything, for two people, they’re going to have to call somebody,” she said. “Well, they’re not going to have somebody right here.” Thompson said if the Lakeland South area is annexed, the community will get a bigger bang for their buck, which would include road maintenance among

www.federalwaymirror.com other services. City of Federal Way Finance Director Ade Ariwoola confirmed that if the residents were annexed, they would end up paying less for city road district levies, as the tax rate for the city levy is 1.24, while the county road levy is 2.25. This would save about $250 for a homeowner whose house is valued at $250,000. Although there would be an added utility tax — which is dependent on usage or whether the resident pays for garbage, recycling and yard waste services — of $300. But, Ariwoola also notes city residents pay about $114 less than county residents do for their garbage and recycling fees. “People are concerned about paying more for taxes and, according to what I have been told by a lady at the King County Tax Assessors office, she said there’s tax levy codes …” Hurst said. “… Per $250,000 home, we will be saving approximately $150 a year. Let’s say there was some erroneous tax that we don’t know about, we would still be even and we’re going to get more services.” Hurst also worries about disaster preparedness. “Do you want to be next to a city that says, ‘Oh we’ve got everything taken care of,’ the hospitals are full, Auburn says, ‘yeah, we’re full’ and those people say they’re full and the county says, ‘well you’re not populated enough, we’ll get to you,’” she said. Ultimately, it’s also about having access to the perks a city has, such as the option to be heard during a council

...obituaries OSCAR IVAR HANSON APRIL 4, 1929 — APRIL 12, 2015

Oscar Ivar Hanson passed away April 12, 2015 in Federal Way at the age of 86. He graduated from Central Washington College with a BA in Education, and received his Master’s Degree and Principal's Credentials from Seattle University. His education career was spent in the South Central, Kent and Federal Way School Districts as a fifth grade teacher, vice principal, and 27 years as principal of Sunnycrest, North Lake, and Olympic View Elementary Schools in Federal Way. He served in the Army from 1953 to 1956 in the Alaska Communication Service. He was a member of the Federal Way Rotary and Shelton Morning Rotary Clubs. In the summer, he fished commercially in Cook Inlet, Alaska. He is survived by his wife Patricia, children, Lori Bradley (Eric), Sheryl Carson (Charlie), Karen Weber (Bill) and Tom Hanson (Kristine); eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

meeting if something isn’t working or the ability to run for city government, commissions or committees. Votes will be one in 100,000 instead of one in one million, she said. The former business owner and current member of Federal Way Rotary said her efforts to annex into Federal Way aren’t about taking away residents’ independence but about being taken care of during a storm and making sure kids aren’t ran over from lack of street lights on major thoroughfares. “It’s about having people having pride in their community,” Hurst said. “There’s people who went and painted the fence all along 21st because they have pride and we live in a great little rural neighborhood but we still need the pride.” Yet, there are some community members who feel differently.

OPPOSITION

Resident of the Lake Geneva area in unincorporated King County, Jerry Galland has spearheaded the anti-annex to Federal Way movement. “The people who moved into this community moved into a rural-type community,” he said. “If we wanted to live in a city, we’d move into a city.” Galland believes city government will impose “encroachments,” such as business regulations (small businesses will have to get a business license), rules that houses must have a fire alarm, restrictions on farm animals, fireworks and mandated fees and taxes. Ben Hardy, also opposed to the idea of annexation, said he’s concerned that a city council will have control over his neighborhood. “One of the things I like about living where we do is that I can look out my window and see the sheep grazing in my neighbor’s field,” he wrote in an email. “That, on the Fourth of July, my kids can enjoy a home fireworks display. I like that occasionally I can bring one of my semi-trucks home to work on it and park it next to my house for a couple of

days.” Hardy said he doesn’t like the idea of giving up his freedom to save a few dollars a month in taxes, nor does he want to be told what color to paint his small business’s fence, how many bushes he should plant or how much land he must leave as a greenbelt. Galland said the idea that residents will save tax money is misleading because residents would only save about $7 instead of the $150 his counterpart states. “The only thing we really change is we go from a county to a city,” Galland said, adding the Lakehaven Water district, South King Fire and Rescue district and Federal Way Public Schools district all stay the same. While there are only two sheriff ’s for their area, Galland said there’s a King County Sheriff ’s substation nearby and he sees them patrolling the area frequently. “We’re already divided geographically by I-5, that’s a boundary the city of Federal Way police already have to overcome,” he said, referencing the traffic in that area.

2007 FAILURE

Galland was asked to take charge against the effort to annex the entire East Federal Way Proposed Annexation Area, Lakeland North and Lakeland South, in August 2007. Residents of these unincorporated areas voted on the measure, which ultimately failed by 65 percent. “We still don’t want it,” Galland said. But Hurst believes the circumstances are different because the Lakeland South area only makes up half of the East Federal Way Proposed Annexation Area. “Federal Way will no longer be taking on some20,000 people, they’ll be taking on probably 7,000 people,” Hurst said. About 884 residents voted to annex to Federal Way, while 1,639 residents voted against the ballot measure. Of the 10,468 voters registered to vote on the 2007 annexation, only 2,561 voted. Washington state and King County offered incen-

The Lakeland South Proposed Annexation Area is south of Highway 18, east of Interstate 5, west of State Route 167 and north of South 376th Place. Contributed map tives to the city of Federal Way for the annexation, if it passed. King County was ready to offer $3.5 million, while the state would give up .02 percent of sales tax revenue, or about $3 million a year, for 10 years to assist in the operational costs for services. While Hurst said King County would be willing to negotiate on funds if annexation passed in the future, Galland said there’s no money for a move that would incur a lot of expenses and he doesn’t think the city could afford it. King County officials did state that the 2007 funds have since been re-appropriated and are no longer available, nor is any money on the table at this time.

CITY IMPACT

However, Ariwoola said he doesn’t think the annexation would increase city staff or have much affect on the city’s operational budget. “In talking toward police department, public works, I don’t think that would necessarily increase staff ratio, it would increase coverage areas, but not increase staff,” Ariwoola said. Although it’s too early to tell whether it would increase the city’s capital budget, he said if residents in the area want sidewalks or other road improvements, they can become a local improvement district and would essentially pay

for it themselves. “I don’t foresee annexing them [would create] a financial burden, necessarily, for the city,” he said. “Yes, in times of road maintenance, we may have to maintain their roads, but when we build new roads, we’ll use a portion from [state or federal] grants.” Ariwoola said the city is only 25 years old and they’re still making improvements to Pacific Highway. “I don’t foresee the city saying it needs to be done in the next 12 months,” he said. “I think some of those things, if they need to be done, it will be done gradually.” There also could be some benefit to the city in having about 7,000-8,000 more residents in city borders bringing the population of Federal Way from 92,700 to just about 100,000. “I think there are certain demarcations of a city the size of 100,000 but that’s not playing any kind of a role,” said Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell. “There are certain designations about being a city of that size but we’re not initiating any of this.” Ferrell said if the people of Lakeland South are truly interested in annexation, then the city is interested. “I’m interested and intrigued,” he said. “It is part of our [proposed annexation area], and my mom, before she passed, lived in that area by Five Mile Lake. It’s an urban island, essentially — boy if they want to be part of the city of Federal Way, we’d love to have them.” Again noting the city isn’t behind Hurst’s efforts to annex, Ferrell said city staff will act as a resource to the public during the process.

appealing in nearly every sense. Rodriguez, born in Guadalajara, Mexico, was raised in a family of restaurateurs who loved entertaining and had an unapologetic passion for food. Rodriguez, who trained and mastered her culinary skills at the feet of her mother and grandfather, started Pimienta after a decade-long career at Nor-

dstrom Department stores as the overseer of restaurant operations in five states. Rodriguez’s work with the Seattle-based chain also included composing two cookbooks for the high-end retailer, and she has clearly inherited its artistic aesthetic. Rodriguez loves fresh, organic, locally-sourced ingredients. Her Paella Valenciana, which has been on her menu since the bistro’s inception, may not resemble anything you’ve tasted this side of coastal

Spain. The Pasta de la Casa is solid. She is a chef you would trust with trenette noodles and house made pesto and tarragon cream sauce, or with pistachio crusted rack of lamb, with smoky clams and chorizo or with a rib eye steak, and for good reason. But Rodriguez’s style is not what you might call self-indulgent. So a plate of calamari frites isn’t the seething, oily mess you might get elsewhere in town. It is house-breaded, [ more COLBERT, page 17 ]

each piece lightly dusted and fried — proper. Fried chickpeas are crisp and sided nicely with chili lime tajin, and tend to be anything but anonymous in flavor. On my last visit to Pimienta (which is Spanish for Peppercorn), one of my dinner companions called to say she would be running late. And while we waited for her, we ended up working through a big chunk of the menu, a

course or two at a time. There was smoked pork belly, a neat mound of herby smoked pork pâté with triangles of grilled brioche to spread it on, loosely packed ahi tuna poke with citrus lime drizzle, and brussel sprouts with cipollini onions cooked in — wait for it — duck fat! Delectable. Somebody ordered quesos + prosciutto, local cheeses, prosciutto di parma with seasonal fruit, nuts and grilled bread. We had butternut squash ravioli

in mascarpone sauce with grilled prawns. And panela frita, panko encrusted fresh Mexican cheese with a cilantro cream sauce. We drank beer named things such as Claymore and Bluestar. Like kids we had a crayon tic-tac-toe duel on the paper covered tabletops. By the time our friend joined us — 60 minutes after we sat down — I realized that this not-quite meal was probably the most fun I’d ever had at Pimienta, nibbling instead of dining, allowing myself

to delight in Rodriguez’s bright flavors rather than by her disdain for regional specificity.

Metropolitan King County Councilman Pete von Reichbauer was recently awarded the Bill Kyle Service Award by the Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce during their

sixth annual Recognition of Service dinner. This award is given each year to an elected official whose hard work and dedication positively impacts the greater Auburn community. Bill Kyle made his home in Auburn with his wife Dolores, owning his own medical insurance agency. He was known for his service to the community and caring for others less fortunate. In

defects and often creates an inability to accomplish one’s goals. We need to study these long-term effects as well as the effects of its recent legalization without adding yet another facet to the equation. It is at best hasty to bring this to a vote when so much accurate information is yet needed. As an expert in inpatient adolescent treatment says: “I have seen firsthand the destruction this drug causes. If you added up all the reasons for adolescents going to treatment — including alcohol— — they would not equal the amount of adolescents going to treatment for just one drug alone, marijuana. There is now a push in our community to manufacture and distribute marijuana. Should we really be that easily influenced? … Let our revenue-making ventures be guided by the principle of the good of our entire [community], not on the false promise of money.” This issue has recently become a highly political one rather than one simply involving the welfare of our community. It is not a matter of opinion or preference

1994, Kyle played a major role in saving the Auburn Food Bank from closing. In 2006, he also created the Food to Go program that fed hungry students at the Auburn Food Bank on the weekends so that they had a stable source of food other than school lunches. Kyle passed away in 2009, but his memory in the Auburn area lives through this award.

or politics; it is a matter of what is truly right to do. One-third of the cities in Washington state have banned marijuana shops from their jurisdictions in order to protect their communities. We here in Federal Way should follow suit. As a mother, grandmother, teacher and citizen of Federal Way, I ask our council representatives to promote the safest, healthiest and most life giving option for our citizens. I ask our council and mayor to think less of their political futures and more about the health and welfare of the city. I ask them to ban the sales of marijuana in the city, which is in their power to do. Please contact the council and ask them to reconsider the advisory vote and vote once again to ban marijuana sales from our city, at least until, as Thomas Jefferson said, “If we think [the electorate] not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion … the remedy … is to inform their discretion by education.” And this is what we all must do.

year in a car or small SUV, saving the fire trucks for when they are really needed? Concern No. 3: Why not charge the people who are using the service, or at least the people who are abusing the service? According to data from Valley 911, a single house in Federal Way received more than 80 visits from South King Fire in 2014. I understand the district is hesitant to charge people, but 80 visits?! Or, how about following the example of our police department and start charging for false alarms, which average more than 80 a month? At a minimum, why can’t the district just stop responding to the hundreds of non-

Concern No. 4: Don’t we give South King Fire enough money already? If the district can afford to pay $200,000 a year for an empty piece of land on the edge of town, why not use that money to buy a new truck every three years? The district knows how long roofs and trucks last, why haven’t they been saving up for their replacements? It wasn’t that long ago the district did save up for new equipment (and the city still follows this policy), why did they stop? Concern No. 5: Can we trust the district leadership to make good decisions with our money? I know this sounds personal, but it’s not. It’s just that the only time we

hear from district leadership is when they are trying to get money. They also seem to totally ignore any concerns or complaints that are raised by citizens. Yes, we all know that Jerry Galland has some kind of vendetta against the district, but this doesn’t mean they should ignore his concerns. Every time Galland or anyone else raises a concern the district ignores, we have no choice but to assume the concern is at least partially valid. Would fixing these concerns convince all 7,500 people to vote yes? Probably not. Would it convince enough people to pass the bond by a large margin? Certainly. Despite having been a long-

time critic, if South King Fire were to address even a fraction of these issues I would gladly waive a “Vote Yes” sign on Highway 99 and South 320th every morning for a month. So how about you? If you voted no, what would it take you to change your vote? Alternatively, if you voted yes, how would you answer these concerns? Send your thoughts to jarvismp@outlook.com. While you’re at it, Cc your email to info@SouthKingFire.org so that maybe, just maybe, we can break this 20-plus year losing streak.

[ ROEGNER from page 6] of public movement benefits Duclos. So far, no one is stepping up to take on Councilwoman Susan Honda. As noted earlier, the big news may be Ferrell’s political strength after the elections. The political parties aren’t the only ones who should be recruiting candidates with similar goals. So far, Ferrell has endorsed Koppang and will likely stay with that position even if Greene switches. Greene has some Democratic ties but Ferrell is banking on a Koppang win. Ferrell has also endorsed Duclos over Republican Thumbi. Again, a Duclos win is expected. In the Assefa-Dawson-Murietta race, Ferrell hasn’t endorsed either. His involvement in the council races has been very low-key, and involves candidates who are running, not candidates Ferrell recruited. When he was elected mayor, only two members of the council supported him. That is likely not the case any longer. The council has voted for almost everything Ferrell has requested. But those votes have been pragmatic and not made of loyalty, as the council has gotten almost everything it has wanted as well. And pragmatism only goes so far. There were five votes to defeat Ferrell’s proposal and ban marijuana, and there may have been five votes to override any veto. The main message out of the council discussions on marijuana is that the honeymoon may be over. The council will go its own way when it suits them. Ferrell needs supporters on the council or the next two years won’t be nearly as easy as the first two. Koppang is likely to reflect the same conservative voting pattern as Councilman Bob Celski, and Duclos will continue on her previous path. Though both come closer to Ferrell in viewpoints than the likely opponents, neither will be his loyalists. In what might be the closest race, Democrats will expect Ferrell to endorse Murrietta. However, Assefa-Dawson is the probable front runner. That is a big risk for Ferrell if Murrietta doesn’t win, but sitting on the sidelines doesn’t gain him anything either. If Ferrell comes out of the election with no improvement in his position, gearing up for his own election in two years will get more difficult as other names are already in play. The Gregory-Hickel race is the stage setter for 2016. This year’s council races set the stage for mayoral and council races in 2017. Watch to see which community leaders endorse which candidates and who raises the most money. It will tell you a lot about the candidates’ strengths and weaknesses.

CRIME

This week’s…

ALERT

Police Blotter Antiques stolen: At 5:30 a.m. on May 3 in the 31700 block of Gateway Center Boulevard S., a man reported the theft of collectible items from the locked and enclosed bed of his truck. He told police that he is an antiques collector and had approximately $12,950 worth of items stolen from his vehicle. The items were in the bed of his truck and locked in by a hard top, which has a faulty lock that the suspect pried open to gain access. Nothing of evidentiary value was located in the vehicle. Neither of the surrounding hotels had video surveillance that covered the location where the vehicle was parked. No other victims were located in the area and no suspects have been developed at this time. Man hurts self in argument: At 12:47 p.m. on May 3 in the 32100 block of 20th Lane SW, two people got into a verbal argument over limited quality time spent together. A man walked out from the apartment and, angry over the situation, he grabbed the metal railing and smashed his forehead against it causing his head to bleed. The other individual was uninjured. The bleeding man fled the scene prior to police arrival and his roommates confirmed the man hitting his head. A domestic violence pamphlet was issued to the others involved. Minor assaulted: At 10:53 p.m. on May 3 in the 33000 of 22nd Place S, police responded to a call

about a man assaulting a 17-yearold male. A neighbor called police upon seeing the man and boy yelling at each other. The boy’s mother pulled into the driveway and the man slammed her son into her car. The boy fought the man off with a stick in the yard. When police arrived, the man was seated in front of the house and bleeding. Police arrested him for assault and booked him into SCORE jail. Dessert thief strikes: At 11:55 p.m. on May 3 in the 2100 block of S. 295th Place, a woman called to report that she believed someone had entered her residence. The only items she believed to be missing were five pieces of cake out of a cake tray, some cookies from inside a cookie box, and an empty duffel bag taken from a cluttered bedroom. She reported that a curtain, some food trays and some laundry baskets appeared to be misplaced slightly from the last time they were seen. The reporting party stated a screen door was open, the sliding door in front of it was unlocked when it had previously been locked, and the curtain in front of the door had been taken down from where it was hanging. There was no evidence of forced entry to the sliding door or screen door. Multiple valuable items throughout the residence were left undisturbed. Man assaults woman: At 12:11 a.m. on May 2 in the 2000 block of S. 279th Place, officers arrested a man for assault and domestic violence in the presence of a minor. A woman claimed her boyfriend got angry after a comment about the laundry stinking. He began to throw items in the bathroom. When she suggested

that she leave with her daughters, he became angered. He grabbed her by the neck and threw her into the living room in front of her 12-year-old daughter. Police noticed her neck was red. Police talked to the man, who was calm when they arrived, and arrested him for probable cause of assault. He was booked into SCORE jail. Mother and son arrested for assault: At 1:45 a.m. on May 2 in the 30200 block of 29th Ave. S., police responded to two calls about a loud dispute in the neighborhood. Police arrived to the scene where an injured woman was lying in the street and a man was standing over her. Upon police arrival, he ran and hid in his house. His mother who was also outside tried to go to the house, but police caught her. She appeared to be drunk. A witness stated he heard yelling and saw individuals in the street. He watched two girls get into an SUV and the male try to elbow his way through the window. They parked the SUV and began banging on the door of the house the mother and son had returned to. The mother came out of the house and grabbed one girl by the hair, but lost her grip and fell over. The male then began hugging one of the girls trying to get her to leave, but the girl said something that set him off. He began punching her numerous times until she fell to the ground. He then kicked her and attempted to go after the other girl. The mother restrained him as police arrived on the scene. Police arrested the mother and her son for assault. Man involuntarily committed: At 1:51 p.m. on May 2 in the

‘Rabid Fan Bandit’ receives 10-year prison sentence for bank robberies in South King County FROM STAFF REPORTS

A 31-year-old man received a 10-year prison sentence on Tuesday for his involvement last year in more than a dozen bank robberies, including ones in Kent, Auburn, Renton, Covington, Federal Way and Des Moines. Robert Cal Adams III was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Seattle, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office media release, which listed Adams as being from King County. The FBI knew him as the “Rabid Fan Bandit” because of the various hats with sports logos he wore in a string of robberies. The investigation also revealed Adams’s involvement in a second string of bank robberies dubbed the “Buddy Bandit” bank robberies where juveniles were recruited, trained and sent in to rob tellers using notes almost identical to the one Adams used when solo. U.S. District Judge John C. Coughenour stated that this sentence is imposed “with a heavy emphasis on the defendant’s decision to involve juveniles” in criminal activity. “This defendant not only terrorized tellers across our state, he recruited and trained teenagers to continue his crime spree,” said U.S. Attorney Annette L. Hayes. “His willingness to draw young people into these bank robberies makes this a particularly despicable crime.” Adams pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bank robbery and 10 individual counts of bank robbery. According to records filed in the case, Adams robbed the following banks in 2014 by handing a teller a threatening note demanding various amounts of cash: Chase Bank on Auburn Way in Auburn, March 3; Banner Bank on East Mission Street in Spokane, March 10; Chase Bank on 272nd Street in Covington, March 13; Chase Bank on 108th Southeast in Renton, March 19; Wells Fargo Bank on Gravelly Lake Drive Southwest in Tacoma, March 24; and Chase Bank on South 19th Street in Tacoma on March 31. After the March 2014 bank robberies, Adams recruited others to his scheme and is convicted in connection with four other bank robberies in April 2014, when juveniles went into the banks with notes demanding money and threatening harm to the tellers. These robberies include April 1, Chase Bank on Pacific Avenue in Tacoma; April 7, US Bank on 176th Street, Puyallup; April 9, Alaska Federal Credit Union branches in Renton and Kent; April 9, US Bank on Pacific Highway in Des Moines; April 10, Wells Fargo on 72nd Street East, Tacoma; April 11, BECU on Pacific Highway South, Kent; and April 11, Bank of America on Southwest 336th Street, Federal Way. Adams teamed up with co-defendant Vincent G. Thompson to rob Chase Bank on Canyon Road East in Puyallup on April 14. The final robbery in the spree was on April 21. Following that robbery of US Bank on Pacific Highway South in Des Moines, investigators were able to locate Adams at a nearby motel and arrested him. “Bank robbers who commit their crimes across multiple jurisdictions might never face justice if not for the coordination of partners,” said Special Agent in Charge Frank Montoya, Jr., of the FBI’s Seattle Division. “The FBI’s Seattle Safe Streets Task Force and its partners throughout the state shared information at every step of this investigation, which allowed us to determine connections between bank robberies and identify everyone involved.”

Gifts that WOW!, and what they say about you (NEWSUSA)

Wow. Unless you’re living in some alternative universe, that’s the reaction you’re likely shooting for when others open your holiday presents. But with so many choices be aware that you’re also sending a message about yourself with every one of them. The right gift, as consumer behavior expert Kit Yarrow has written, “can enhance connections between people.” A really bad one . . .Well, we’ve probably all distanced ourselves from someone whose obviously inappropriate present screamed “clueless.” Here’s what some “wow” gifts say about you: • I’d rather be safe than sorry. Most women

would be thrilled to receive a bottle of expensive perfume. But beware: A lot of others would interpret such an “easy” choice the way this New York writer did when her (ex-)boyfriend so gifted her after she’d spent weeks searching for the perfect briefcase for him: “It just seemed like something he picked up at the airport duty-free store.” Ouch. • I recognize your passions. An Italian sports car is beyond the reach of most of us, but there’s a whole cottage industry out there offering gift certificates for “experiences” like a few hours behind the wheel of exotic autos. There’s also tandem skydiving and whitewater rafting. • It’s all about HER. For those toying with contributing to a charity in mom’s name, make sure it’s a cause she believes in as much as you do. Otherwise, the message you may unwittingly be sending is “It’s all about me.”
