Council authorizes city to apply for $3.03 million loan for PAEC BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ


he Federal Way City Council voted 6-1 on Tuesday to authorize city staff to apply for a $3.03 million federal loan for the Performing Arts and Events

Center. If the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development approves the Section 108 loan application specifically for the arts center, the city will repay the loan using its Community Development Block Grant entitlement funds. This would cost the city

an average of approximately $192,000 — or 31 percent of its block grant funding — per year over a 20-year period. The council first broached the subject of applying for the federal loan in August 2013, which ended in a split vote to approve moving forward with the application

process. Councilwomen Susan Honda, Kelly Maloney and then-Deputy Mayor Jim Ferrell cast the dissenting votes. At that time, city staff said the city could use the loan to spur economic development in general, which included but was not [ more LOAN page 8]

Federal Way-based Christine Alexander to roll out new clothing line, designs BY RAECHEL DAWSON


hristine Alexander customers like bling. “The challenge is [the demographic] is not the Pacific Northwest because it’s not bling, this is grunge,” said Christine Alexander CEO Bill Garmin, who owns half of the company. “Southern California, Dallas, Arizona, Florida, that’s really where our mecca is.” So it may come as a surprise to learn not only is the clothing company’s headquarters in Federal Way, but Federal Way residents Christine and Alexander created the business out of their own garage before it was incorporated in 1992. But Garmin said that’s not to say they’re not where they should be. The clothing factory, located at 34210 Ninth Ave. S., Suite 101, is near Seattle and Tacoma ports, which is important because the bulk of their clothing comes from Asia, Garmin said. After garments are shipped to the facility, 45 workers work together to ensure Swarovski crystals are strategically placed in designs intricate enough to be a sketched drawing.

After the business graduated from the garage to a space in an industrial park in Federal Way, they had to move again due to its expanding customer base. An employee for 15 years, Karen McClure said the business outgrew the building next door to where they’re currently at and went from a novelty for holidays or special events to six-figure orders from Nordstrom’s. “You start early and just keeping making it along with other things coming through but you have to stage it and usually do one line item at a time, that kind of thing,” McClure said about those big orders. “We have some very organized people who do that kind of thing, good planners.” Christine Alexander hasn’t had an order like that since before the Great Recession. “We felt the impacts of the recession but have survived,” she said. “In 2006, we had more orders than we could fill. It was just amazing, just amazing. It’s like we hit it.” But like most companies after the recession, the

market changed. Garmin said people who could “change with it quickly, survived. People who couldn’t, died, and Christine Alexander was halfway in between that.” That, coupled with an I-9 issue that caused a loss of half of production employees in December 2012, brought the company to Garmin in August 2013. Trying to help the company figure out financing, Garmin hesitantly entered into a deal that gave him full decision-making authority and part ownership while Christine and Alexander each got 25 percent of their company. “Chris and Alex cre-

ated a brilliant concept,” Garmin said. “They have some fantastic people that are here. All that was missing was how to run a business.” The company went from 120 employees to its current 45, and with that a drop in sales from $15 million to now a little above a third of that. Garmin was also able to utilize more of their facility’s space. Giving it another lease on life, Garmin now runs the business on the upside down pyramid concept. If a light bulb needs to be changed, he’s on it. If funding is needed, he’s your man. “It’s to equip and em-

power the people who are actually running this company and we have five fantastic ladies that are running this company — the leadership team,” he said. “They support the leads and they know clearly that their job isn’t to cast down orders but their job is to listen to the leads as far as what they need in order to run and the leads know that their job is to listen to the people on the presses as far as what they need.” Employees are valued, which can be seen by the company’s improvements in the way they pay, compensate and benefit them, Garmin said. With a projection that in two years the company will be where it was before the recession, Garmin said the next challenge will be appealing to the younger crowd. And by younger, he means women ages 40-70. “Betty White was our poster child, she wears our stuff all the time,” Garmin said, adding that everyone got excited when Shirley Jones was seen wearing Christine Alexander because she was 78 years old at the time. To do that, Christine Alexander will be bringing

out new clothing with new designs in addition to potentially looking at a new brand that doesn’t have Swarovski crystals, but crystals that look the same and are less expensive. “Christine Alexander will always be Swarovski,” he said. “It would have to be a different brand, a different name that would be approaching the younger market.” Garmin said Christine Alexander’s “next three months are always the hardest three months” but anticipates a time when there’s less time and resources being dedicated to clearing out the past and more focused on the future. “The goal is to get back on the success level that Chris and Alexander started in 2009,” he said. “It’s a harder market, therefore we have to be smarter about the way we do it.” The Christine Alexander Factory has an outlet store at their headquarters that sells clothing at discounted pricing. It’s open select hours during the summer. For more information, visit or call 800-5542539, ext. 44.

Jessica Ventoza was named head softball coach at Cal State Stanislaus on Tuesday. Ventoza was an assistant coach at Western Washington University during the 2014 and 2015 seasons. The team was 60-32 during her tenure. Prior to that, she was the head coach at Decatur High School in 2013 and directed the Federal Way Mosquito Squad fastpitch club from 2011-13.

Thomas Jefferson grads hope to turn around college soccer program BY TERRENCE HILL


helsea Carillo and Nicole Goldingay began playing soccer together at the age of 5. Now, they are both midfielders on the Green River Community College team and are hoping to get the Gators to the playoffs for the first time since 2011. Carillo first met Goldingay when she began playing mod soccer in Federal Way. Goldingay’s father was their first coach. Since then, the two have been almost inseparable. “If it wasn’t for her dad, I probably wouldn’t be playing,” Carillo said. “And without soccer, we wouldn’t be such good friends.” “We’ve also gone to pretty much every school together since then too,” Goldingay said. They continued to play mod soccer while they attended Valhalla Elementary and at the age of 10 they began to play on select teams. They attended Federal Way Public Academy, Totem Middle School and Thomas Jefferson High School before heading to college. Both say the current high point of their careers, not including playing at the

collegiate level, was reaching the postseason while at Thomas Jefferson. Soccer isn’t just limited to their time playing for Green River, however. The two also work at Starfire Sports in Tukwila. Every once in a while they get to play with some of the teams that train at the complex. It was there that they played against each other for the first time. “I was asked to guest play for this team I’d played for before,” Goldingay said. “I went to see if Shelsea

wanted to play and she told me she already knew about it. When we got down there she walked past my team and I didn’t know what was going on. Turned out we had agreed to play for opposite teams. It was kind of weird.” “Her team won, though,” Carillo said. The two took a year off from playing to attend Highline College together. At the time, they didn’t have options for playing collegiately but they missed

playing. A sophomore from Green River met the two one day and suggested that they transfer. They decided to take her advice and received athletic scholarships after they committed to the team. “I really like it here,” Carillo said. “The school is really nice and the teachers are very helpful. I really like our team. The girls are really cool and the coach is awesome.” Their goal is to get to

the playoffs in their second year, something that has been done only five times in the history of the program. Since 1994, Green River has only finished with more wins than losses three times. The Gators’ best finish was making the quarterfinals of the playoffs in 2011. Last season they went 6-13, finishing fifth in the North Division of the Northwest Athletic Conference. “Last season was rough,” Carillo said. “But we’re starting to learn how to play a lot better. I can already tell we’re going to do a lot better this upcoming season.” “We started really well last year actually,” Goldingay said. “Then we had a bunch of ankle injuries and we just didn’t finish how we expected.” Carillo says that her personal goal for the year is to work on her shooting. She says she has a problem with finding the posts instead of the net on her shots and she’d really like to fix that. The team has a full class of incoming freshmen who will compete with the sophomores in the offseason. Green River head coach Stu Snow plans to have the sophomores play against [ more SOCCER, page 5 ]

ear grads, it’s that time of year again, when you all are graduating from high school and college. There are ceremonies and celebrations. There are tears, and gifts and joy that you made it! There are important conversations about your future that your teachers and parents and adults who care about you have had with you — and probably a few that never did happen. So, as you go on toward your next adventures, whether they are in college or in “real life,” here are some words of wisdom from your friendly, neighborhood sexuality educator. You’ve already gotten and will continue to get a ton of mixed messages about sex. Media will tell you that it’s natural and you don’t even have to know a person very well to have sex. You’ve probably seen clips of spring break and people doing crazy stuff, but that doesn’t mean everyone is and it doesn’t mean you have to do that. Your family or faith tradition may discourage you from rushing into sexual behavior. Your hormones may be urging you to go for it, while your values and intellect might be telling you to slow down. You may have friends who think it’s no big deal, who think it’s important to be in love, or who are waiting until marriage to have sex. In the end, you will have to decide which voices and messages to listen to. Whatever you decide, I hope you will be safe. I hope you will be wise. I hope you will be cautious at parties. Even if someone doesn’t slip something into your drink, simply drinking alcohol impairs your decision-making. Even if you have your wits about you, the person you are thinking of having sex with might not. Or the person over there in the corner may have had too many drinks. Or your roommate or a friend may need your clear head when their head is not so clear. Consent is about two people making a conscious, clear-headed decision to enter into this behavior, which you or a partner or a friend or anyone cannot do while drunk. Amy Johnson

Hits, misses and rumors Economic development has been at the forefront of every Puget Sound city’s wish list. The competition among jurisdictions remains intense. In Federal Way, it was a major point of debate in the last mayoral race as Jim Ferrell challenged whether thenMayor Skip Priest had done enough to attract or keep business. Last fall, Ferrell hired a “game changer” as our new Economic Development director. So far, it is a mixed record as Weyerhaeuser announced it’s leaving and DeVry University says it is closing at the end of the year. Elsewhere, Kent had a win when it was able to attract an Amazon fulfillment center and its 500 jobs, Issaquah will have a new Metropolitan Market, (remember when ours left a few years ago?) and Auburn got Brooks Brothers, but lost the Federal Aviation Administration, which is moving its 1,600 employees from Auburn to Des Moines. Were we competitive for any of

these? At the mayor-council retreat in January, it was stated that a major announcement would be made by the end of April. But so far no announcement and not much has changed in Federal Way. Ferrell can point to the approval of the Performing Arts and Events Center along with a new downtown park. But those are a long way from showing any return on investment. And they are tax supported, not private sector. Also, the arts center still needs more help in federal tax credits, which may not be known for several weeks. Ferrell tried to replicate his successful neighborhood connection program with a similar business approach. It didn’t work as well and caused some friction within the business community. The lack of progress has caused many to raise questions about the scope and direction of his economic development initiatives. But we may be starting to see a glimmer on [ more ROEGNER, page 7 ] Bob Roegner

Reduction of services will be devastating The deadline for avoiding a government shutdown on July 1 is fast approaching, yet the Washington Legislature still cannot agree on a budget. Food banks received notices this week telling us that if there is no budget, we will not get the funds from the state that we rely on to keep our doors open. At Multi-Service Center’s

food bank, we serve residents in the Federal Way school district boundaries as well as Northeast Tacoma — these are our neighbors who rely on the food we provide to feed their families. Without funding from the state, we will have less food to distribute and less funds with which to pay salaries to the few employees we have on staff. It may have an impact on our ability to keep the lights on and the number of days/hours we are open to the public. In addition to the food bank, other Multi-Service Center programs including housing, energy assistance, employment, education and the Long Term Care State Ombudsman program rely on government funding to fully operate. They too run the risk of impacts ranging from reduced program

hours and a reduction in our ability to provide these services to our community to a complete shutdown of some services. Last year, over 18,000 from Federal Way were provided services by Multi-Service Center, which equates to 38 percent of all customers served by our organization. A reduction in or termination of services — even temporarily — would be devastating to the Federal Way community. It is time for the Legislature to agree on a budget, one that shares our priorities for all Washingtonians. The House budget includes funding requests for social services including food banks and other key antihunger programs while meeting basic education funding obligations, thanks to the inclusion of a mod-

est capital gains tax. Not passing a budget is not an option, and neither is passing one that doesn’t support our neighbors who are still struggling.

Getting tough on bullying “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” Maybe it’s time to forget that rhyme because we know that bullying and cyberbullying can be all about words that do hurt and can be cause for great harm and self-harm among our students. Earlier in May, the school board was presented comparable trend data to assess how our students

are doing relative to Policy Governance End 3 (Student Responsibility for Personal Success), which includes how they exhibit positive, ethical behavior and treat one another with respect, courtesy and dignity. The inferences elicited both good dialog and concerns. First the good news: it takes two to fight and incidents recorded as fighting have gone down significantly. Also good news, assaults (it takes just one perpetrator attacking a victim) resulting in injury have gone down. The concerns come for the data that showed, in the case of bullying, less than half the students knew who to report the incidents to and in addition nearly half believed that reporting incidents to an adult or teacher would not result in some form of intervention. Some may argue that this depicts a culture of “don’t [ more LETTERS page 27 ]

the horizon. While cautious in their optimism, the mayor and his staff seem to be confident they’ll have a positive outcome in the tax credit program to help finance the arts center. And recently, Ferrell corrected his misstep as he moved aggressively to partner with the Chamber, establishing regular meetings with business leaders, along with investing in programs to raise the city profile regionally. The renewed cooperation should pay future dividends. And while the state is the primary driver in the Weyerhaeuser discussions, the city is participating in regular meetings to lend support and says several businesses have shown interest. But over the last few months, one of the more interesting rumors has been the possibility of discussions with a major university. Could former Husky Ferrell really be talking with the Cougars? While no one locally will confirm the rumor, it has been a point of interest in college circles for many weeks. However, Federal Way’s viability is in question. For several months Bellevue and Washington State University pursued discussions on establishing a partnership in Bellevue and they announced in late May that a formal Memorandum of Understanding was very close to being signed. The two institutions have already outlined how a relationship might look. Washington State University has established a footprint in Everett and has a presence in Puyallup. With former King County Executive Ron Sims on their board of regents, expansion into King County seems a logical move. With the growth and wealth on the Eastside, college administrators see Bellevue as the most logical location for Washington State University to establish a competitive playing field with the main branch of the University of Washington and its Bothell branch. Issaquah might be a possible backup. But there is little doubt that the city and Washington State University have had discussions about possible expansion. However, there are questions. With lower incomes in south King County, three other colleges within 20 minutes of Federal Way and the University of Washington already in Tacoma, could Federal Way demonstrate unmet student capacity needs? A needs assessment could help identify whether or not such a need exists. Given the budget debates, it seems unlikely the state would be willing to financially support two new locations in Bellevue and Federal Way. Some question if Federal Way is a serious contender, a backup plan if Bellevue falls through, or a long-range option. But the exploration is a positive move. The next step would be establishing some preliminary agreements to test the school’s level of interest. Then watch to see if the city and university also sign a Memorandum of Understanding. If so, does the city pay for it alone and would it encompass more than just an agreement to do the needs assessment? The next few months should give us a clearer picture of both Ferrell’s economic plans and Washington State University’s level of seriousness. It could be an interesting summer.

Director of Community Development Michael Morales emphasized that since limited to the arts center. In June 2014, the the city already uses the maximum amount Department of Housing approved the $3.03 of block grant funds for public services, it million loan and gave Federal Way officials could not use any more of the funds for that one year to identify what projects the loan category. would fund. “Nothing is being taken from that category City staff weighed the redevelopment of in order to make this happen,” he said. the Twin Lakes Commercial District near Morales said it’s hard to gauge what other Fred Meyer and the arts center, but decided projects the city the funds would best be spent on could use the the latter as the city has already $192,000 for established a master plan for the instead of the Sec$32.7 million center.

The remaining 65 percent of the block “That’s not a secret to anyone,” Honda said. grant funds go to the community economic “I’ve always said that I’d be very hesitant to revitalization fund, which totals $401,353. The city will repay the Section 108 loan using borrow money and this is borrowing money, which I realize is from our Community approximately $192,000 from that portion. Development Block Grant allocation, but Councilman Bob Celski asked what projit’s borrowing money. So the total amount ects the city would have to forego to use the of payments over 20 years would equal how $192,000 to repay the federal loan. much?”

Watson said the city’s total payment in principal and interest would come to over $4 million. “So if we do go ahead with this, I would like to see that when we’re talking about the cost of the Performing Arts and Events Center, that we include that in the cost,” Honda said. Councilwoman Lydia Assefa-Dawson asked staff what would happen with the Section 108 loan if the city’s block grant allotment gets reduced. Morales said once the loan’s fixed rate is set, the debt service will remain the same. “So with any Section 108 loan, you’ve already executed the document, so if our entitlement went down by $100,000 or $50,000, our obligation on the debt service doesn’t change, so everything else has to be absorbed,” he said. City staff noted cities cannot use block grant funds for any debt service other than the Section 108 loan program. “I can certainly understand the uncertainty of (if we are) funding something that is commonly accepted and utilized in other communities and what would the impact be on our entitlement moving forward,” said Morales during Tuesday’s meeting, noting this was the city’s first Section 108 loan. He highlighted several cities across the U.S. that financed Section 108 loans with Community Development Block Grants, including the city of Oceanside, California that used a $6.4 million loan to fund the Joe Balderrama Recreation Center. Watson said while the city is hopeful the Department of Housing will approve the loan, there are still a couple of challenges. To meet the funding criteria, the Performing Arts and Events Center must generate approximately 310 jobs for low- and moderate-income households. “That’s a lot of jobs to create but we have a lot of promising potential with the redevelopment in the town center, so we feel pretty

confident about that,” Watson said. “I think the other question is really just simply is the city comfortable with the repayment terms, et cetera and I think that we are. I think that we feel pretty confident that things will move forward.” Watson said the 310 jobs include a mix of jobs that the arts center will create directly, as well as jobs that the arts center will create “as a catalyst for redevelopment.” This includes jobs at the new hotel the city expects will be built near the arts center and additional development in the Town Center 3 area as a result of the arts center, he said. The city has a special advantage in this job creation process, as the city owns some of the properties for the next phases of the Town Center project, Morales said. “And the reason that’s important is because as we go into property transactions and development agreements for those properties, we have the unique opportunity to be able to sit down that perspective developer and say, ‘What we will need you to do as part of this agreement is go through this reporting process,’” he said, noting it should be an easy cost-free process for developers to report new jobs to the city annually. If the city does not meet its job-creation target over a three-year period, however, the city will not default on the federal loan, Morales noted. “So if you’re worried about that, we’re making the best-faith effort and (the Department of Housing) understand that,” he said, adding the department will look closely at the city’s job projections during the loan underwriting process. The city’s next steps for the Section 108 loan will be submitting the application to the Department of Housing’s Seattle office and its headquarters in Washington, D.C. If the department approves the loan for the Performing Arts and Events Center, the council will hold a second required public hearing.

Decatur alum helping Huskies reach the moon BY TERRENCE HILL


aniel Hsu had an interest in science well before he attended the University of Washington or even Decatur High School. He is now putting that interest into motion as a member of the UW CubeSat team. “I was always interested in science technology since I was very young,” Hsu said. “Even in elementary school, I always enjoyed nonfiction more than children’s books.” Hsu is a geology major at the University of Washington and is hoping to become a geo-technician or a civil engineer in the future. “I came to the [Earth and Space Science] department because it offers a good foundation in both sciences,” Hsu said. While attending Decatur High School, Hsu took a class on the principles of engineering taught by Decatur teacher Sean Smith. He says that class helped him fuel his passion for science and engineering. He also was active in many science related extra-curricular activities in high school.

of their program. They set a goal of $12,000 to fundraise earlier this year and surpassed their goal before their deadline this Thursday with over $13,000 in donations. “We were pretty much collecting the resources to get started for next year,” Hsu said. “While we have the ability to assemble the pieces together, we need the resources to get it done. A lot of these parts are high-tech and expensive.” The satellite will be entered into NASA’s Cube Quest Challenge. They are hoping to be one of three satellites that will earn a spot on the 2018 Orion Capsule launch. The satellite will then be able to orbit around the moon. “We want to be finished by 2018, which is a year after I graduate,” Hsu said. “That should provide me with enough time to contribute to the CubeSat team.” The team will first compete in a ground tournament in August. The winners will receive prize money based on how highly they rate in mission safety and the probability of success. There will be $5 million in prizes given out throughout the entire challenge.

Federal Way Rotary awards scholarships to 22 high school seniors FROM STAFF REPORTS

Twenty-two students, parents, school and city officials and Rotarians celebrated scholarship winners from the five Federal Way high schools at an awards luncheon June 4. The scholarships totaled $40,000. Over 120 people filled the ballroom of the Best Western Hotel. In the past 30 years, the Federal Way Rotary Club has funded more than $500,000 in scholarships to outstanding local students. The scholarships were awarded on the basis of scholastic performance, financial need, leadership potential and community service. Two students earned a perfect 4.0. One was recognized as a Seattle Times female athlete of the year. Many played on championship athletic teams. Another is an accomplished musician on both the piano and violin. Many students volunteered hours at the food bank, tutored other students or cared for infirm relatives. MJ Lee Real from Truman High School won the Al Vaux scholarship, which is a

Students from 3 Federal Way schools recognized in essay contest FROM STAFF REPORTS

Recently, Federal Way middle school students were able to reflect personally on the meaning of live-saving biomedical research in an essay contest put forth by the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research. Federal Way was well-represented among the winners by three schools: Totem Middle School, Nautilus K-8 and Woodmont K-8; and was one of two public schools districts that had honorable mentions and awards from the contest. The remainder of the winners were drawn from private schools throughout the Puget Sound region. Breck Meagher, a sixth grader at Totem Middle School, received an honorable mention for her essay on heart valve replacement. “Breck is a leader in our school. She’s come in and shone in everything she does,” said Adrienne McKay, Breck’s science

scholarship funded by Rotarians and the Vaux family in honor and memory of Al Vaux, a past Rotary Club president. Real wants to study law to be able to help the underserved. Some student winners were natives from Ghana, Mexico, Kenya, and the Philippines. They are going to college to study medicine, film production, computer science, education, law and criminal forensics. The top choices for college work included University of Washington, Washington State, Western Washington and Highline College. One Running Start student completed her high school and associate degree to enter college as a junior. The group of 15 girls and seven boys reflect the national trend of women outnumbering men going to and graduating from college, according to the Rotary. The Federal Way Rotary Club of 72 members is part of a worldwide organization of 1.2 million members. Meetings are held weekly at noon on Thursday at the Marriot Hotel. The local club earns the money for the scholarships and other local and international projects with an annual dinner and auction held the last Saturday in January. For more information about Rotary, visit teacher. Andrew Garzon, a seventh grade student from Nautilus K-8 also received an honorable mention for his essay on treatments for stroke. “A lot of his processing is done through writing. His writing is professional quality,” said Candace Ray, Andrew’s language arts teacher. “We get that quality of writing out of him every day.” Nicholas Chanthalangsy, an eighth grade student at Woodmont K-8, placed second in the English Language Learning category for his essay on bipolar disorder. Nicholas’s teacher, Alan Harvey, described him as “well-liked and academic,” and that in addition to being committed to his studies, he also plays football for Sacajawea Middle School. These accomplished students were able to participate in this intensive project because of the shared effort of their teachers. As part of continued work on the part of educators to prepare students for the next generation of science standards, middle schoolers were given the opportunity to craft a research paper and personal reflection in a joint assignment between science and language arts classes.

Convict Michael Anthony Espinosa, 25, of Burien is currently being held on a $2 million bail at the Regional Justice Center in Kent. Tacoma police arrested Espinosa, also known as “Joker,” on June 9 after they were doing a random check on a problem house in Tacoma. They recognized

Espinosa from the “Lodiscovered Douglas lying kos” tattoo above his right in the driveway with a pool eyebrow and the large tattoo of blood around his head. on the back of He was producing his shaved head, “inaudible sounds” which reads “XIII but was unresponsive. 13.” Douglas was transCharging docuported to Harborview ments allege EspiMedical Center where nosa is responsible he later died of a for shooting and gunshot wound to the Michael Espinosa head. killing Martin A.

Charging documents state she first told police that she heard gunshots outside her window, peeked outside and saw two light skinned males run from her residence. But she changed her story the next day. The 32-year-old woman told police at 6 p.m. on May 22 the victim came to her house and they went to the Emerald Queen Casino. After they returned a few hours later, the woman borrowed his vehicle to “score” some marijuana and beer, at the victim’s request. Douglas

The woman said Douglas was angry it had taken her so long and was waiting outside when they returned. Trying to avoid an argument, the woman went inside and dropped off some “stuff.” When she returned to her driveway, she overheard Douglas say, “I’ll blow up this spot” just before Espinosa allegedly fired off one round into the ground. She allegedly yelled at Espinosa “What the f---, Joker, what are you doing? Stop, stop,” the charging

documents state. But he fired a second time, allegedly shooting Douglas in the face. The woman’s roommate, Espinosa and the 17-yearold boy fled the scene. The woman told police Espinosa was recently released from prison in March, she knew his mother’s address, his gang affiliation with the 13 Sureno gang and was able to describe the tattoos on his face and neck. Police found Espinosa’s previous mug shot, which the woman positively identified. Espinosa was previously convicted of trafficking stolen property in the second degree, a felony.

Husband threatens to kill cats with axe CRIME

This week’s…


Police Blotter The following is a sample from the Federal Way police log: Upset woman suicidal: At 11:42 a.m. on June 14 in an unknown block on S. 317th St., a woman was involuntarily committed. The woman refused to open the door for police to administer aid. The officer involved said she was crying and requesting he go away. She finally opened the door and said she took several Percocet pills because she was upset with her boyfriend, who was not home at the time. Man sneaks into movies: At 3:06 p.m. on June 14 in the 2000 block of S. Commons, a man snuck into two movies without paying at Century Theatres. He also matched the description of one suspect who snuck into the theaters on several occasions, pulling fire alarms and setting off fire extinguishers in the process. Bullet hole found in cabinet wall: At 3:34 p.m. on June 14 in the 1200 block of SW 318th St., a 56-year-old man discovered a bullet hole in his home. The bullet hole was in the wall inside a cabinet above a second shelf. He then went outside to the patio area in his backyard and saw the hole on the outside of the house as well. The man went back to his kitchen and discovered a bullet lodged in the wood framing inside the cabinet. He’s unsure when the incident took place but believes it occurred overnight. Dog bites girl’s hand to the bone: At 4:12 p.m. on June 14 in the 35700 block of Sixth Ave. SW, a dog attacked another dog and dragged it 30 feet after breaking through a fence. During the incident, the victim dog owner’s 14-year-old daughter tried to intervene but was severely bitten on the left hand, exposing bones and tendons. Police walked to the fence and saw a large opening and blood drops in the backyard leading to the porch. Upon contacting witnesses, an officer located the dog attacker’s owner. He walked up to a group of six people and spoke to a man, who appeared intoxicated. A woman told police the girl’s dog had broken through

their fence and attacked her, not the other way around. But police told the woman they had physical evidence that suggested otherwise. After telling them that the dog would need to be taken to the Humane Society of Tacoma or Pierce County for quarantine, the woman became belligerent, started asking questions and arguing. She told the officer to “go call a cop,” to which the officer requested a patrol unit to assist. The group became increasingly agitated and the officer perceived them to be “coming together in a mob mentality.” The officer went back to his car and while he was waiting, two people approached him. He told them to return to where they were and keep to themselves. “The group was making inaudible murmurings and appeared to be only minimally compliant,” the police report states. As more officers arrived, the woman brought out the dog and secured her in the kennel to go into the Federal Way Animal Services truck. Her sister was served a vicious dog declaration notice but was reluctant at first to sign it. The officer then went to the other residence and helped the owners put their obese dog on a stretcher to go to the veterinarian as he appeared to be ataxic. The total cost of the medical and veterinarian bills amounted to $945. Woman finds marijuana on porch: At 5:35 p.m. on June 14 in the 31800 block of 49 Terrace SW, a woman found a small amount of marijuana in a plastic bag on her porch. She told police she wanted to turn it over so that it could be destroyed. Police took it and booked it into property for destruction. Shoplifter gets busted with drug paraphernalia: At 5:41 p.m. on June 14 in the 2100 block of S. Commons, a man stole $300 worth of merchandise from Kohl’s. He also violated a no-trespassing order, as he had previously shoplifted from Target. After he was arrested, police searched him and found drug paraphernalia associated with smoking heroin. Mother threatens daughter with knife: At 7:44 p.m. on June 14 in the 32800 block of 20th Ave. S., a 57-year-old mother was arrested for threatening her 39-year-old daughter with a knife. While the two were in an argument, she picked up the

knife, held it above her head and threatened to kill her daughter. As the two were separated by another woman, the mother repeatedly made threats of killing her daughter before eventually setting the knife down and walking out of the residence. Police interviewed the daughter who told them she was sent to the store earlier that day but lost some of the money her mother gave her. It was during this argument that her mother grabbed an eight inch knife and held it overhead in a stabbing motion. She told officers she took the threat seriously, however, would not provide a written statement. The mother told police her daughter is a bully and she had armed herself with a knife only in defense. She said her daughter kept “coming at her.” She denied making verbal threats but was booked into SCORE jail for investigation of second degree domestic violence assault. Couple argues over cats: At 10:18 p.m. on June 14 in the 2000 block of S. 291st St., a husband and wife of 10 years got into an argument about their cats. The wife told police her husband threatened to kill their cats with an axe. When police spoke to him, he said he would never do that to his animals but he would get rid of them. He also told police their relationship has been under a lot of stress lately. The wife left for the night to calm the situation. Driver harasses female pedestrian: At 6:34 p.m. on June 13 in the 31900 block of Second Lane SW, a female reported an unknown male tried to talk to her from his car as she was walking. She tried to ignore him but he followed her as she walked toward South 320th Street and First Avenue South. She entered an apartment complex to hide from him. She then flagged down a resident at the apartment complex who called 911. Police could not find the man but he’s described as a man of mixed race, possibly African American or Asian, with dark shoulder length hair, about 35-40 years old. The woman told police he was driving a newer model black BMW. Man threatens shooting: At 7:12 p.m. on June 13 in the 32000 block of 41st Place SW, a witness told police he saw a man and woman arguing when he

heard the man yell, “You want me to shoot you?” The witness then heard the sound of a handgun slide being pulled back and released. The suspect was holding a silver semi-automatic handgun. The man then got into a red car and fled the area going westbound on Southwest 321st Street. The woman walked the opposite direction. Another officer located a red Chrysler, which turned up stolen. While in the process of recovering the car, the officer found a black .40 caliber FXN handgun, which was also stolen. However, police could not find the suspect. He is described as a Pacific Islander man in his mid30s with a thick, muscular build and short beard. He has tattoos on his arms and is believed to be carrying a silver semi-automatic handgun. Sibling strangles pregnant sister: At 1:26 p.m. on June 12 in the 30800 block of SW 18th Place, two siblings got into an argument. During the argument, one of the siblings strangled the victim who is four months pregnant. The suspect fled and the victim was evaluated by South King Fire and Rescue and later, a doctor. The police report notes the victim possibly lost consciousness during the strangulation. Teenage boy escapes hospital: At 4:20 p.m. on June 12 in the 34500 block of Ninth Ave. S., a nurse from St. Francis Hospital reported a suicidal teenage boy ran from an emergency room ambulance bay at the hospital. The 17-year-old was wearing a hospital gown and socks. AMR personnel told police they saw him running wearing only boxers. He had been involuntarily committed by his grandfather the day prior because he was thinking of “killing himself but the voices told him not to.” Police detained him near South 336th Street and Interstate 5 and was transported back to the hospital before being transported to Fairfax Hospital. Crying girl at bus stop: At 5:28 p.m. on June 12 in the 28200 block of Pacific Highway South, police observed a girl crying with two friends who were consoling her at a bus stop. The officer asked what happened and they replied that another female had hit their friend. The victim complained of head pain and had a visible abrasion on her right elbow. Aid was initially requested but then canceled at the girl’s request.

Q&A with Mr. FW: Risky business and marijuana Q

: Mr. Federal Way, when the Federal Way City Council previously discussed applying for the $3.03 million federal Section 108 loan, it didn’t seem as though the city would use the funds for the Performing Arts and Events Center. However, the council approved using all of the funds for the arts center on Tuesday. Did I miss something? A: This is a perfect example of politics at its finest. You are correct in your recollection of the council’s initial discussion in 2013, when council members were divided over the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Section 108 loan program. Here’s how it went down. With a 4-3 vote, the council approved moving forward with the application process for the program, which allows cities to borrow against their Community Development Block Grant funding to fund capital projects or for economic revitalization efforts. The U.S. Department of Housing would make a balloon payment to Federal Way for approximately $3.03 million, which as a borrower the city would repay by diverting $192,000 annually from the city’s Community Development Block Grants over the term of the loan — in this case 20 years. The dissenting votes were made by Councilwomen Susan

Honda, Kelly Maloney and then-Deputy Mayor Jim Ferrell, who all feared the $3.03 million would go toward the Performing Arts and Events Center and the city would pick up a huge tab to finance the project. “This sort of feels like, we know we’re not putting it on the credit card, but we’re just applying for the credit card right now,” Ferrell said at that meeting in August 2013. “And we’re getting the credit card ready. It seems like we’re setting up, for ourselves, the ability for debt capacity and then debt maintenance … I do think this is in preparation for taking that credit card out at some point and putting it on the counter, and putting $3 million on it. If you take the credit card out and use the entire $3 million, and use it toward that project, we would be on the hook, and so I am concerned about that, and I’m not convinced we need to open this credit account.” Maloney said she felt like the Section 108 program is aimed at providing funding for the Performing Arts and Events Center. “I do have a big concern, as I’ve mentioned in the past … about going into debt, any amount of debt, for the Performing Arts and (Events) Center,” she said. “And this does seem as if it could be positioned to be used for that. If we could disassociate that project from this, I would be happy to vote

[ LETTERS from page 6] snitch.” Some may argue that the explanation that adults tend to do nothing about reported bullying is that the reports are dismissed as not meeting the danger level of “sticks and stones.” Given the consequences, things have to change. One interesting aspect of the data showed that incidents of assault without bodily harm, when combined with bullying incidents, showed a consistent incident rate over the past few years. I would argue that bullying (takes just one perpetrator targeting a victim) is no different than assault. I would also argue that because bullying can cause bodily, psychological and self-harm, bullying needs to be treated with seriousness by all students and adults that support them (parents, teachers, coaches, administrators, etc).

for it in terms of other projects, but in terms of debt for the (center), I would be against it.” Others, including then-Councilwoman Jeanne Burbidge and Councilwoman Dini Duclos, reassured the dissenters that the council was voting to set up a program. “It is not necessarily designated for the (Performing Arts and Events Center), it can be made for other operations,” Duclos said. Fast forward to June 2014, when the U.S. Department of Housing approved the $3.03 million loan fund and gave the city 12 months to identify what projects the loan would fund. Unsurprisingly, sometime within the past year the city decided to use the entire $3.03 million fund on the performing arts center project. Mr. Federal Way is now donning his sunglasses, sliding across the floor in his socks and calling this risky business. Why? Because any loan comes with a risk and the city’s ability to repay this loan depends on whether the federal government will continue to dole out the Community Development Block Grant year after year. And if Federal Way gets less grant money in three years, the city’s $192,000 payment remains. But what frustrates Mr. Federal Way the most is the mentality of some city staff and council members who knew full well what the funds would be used for, but re-emphasized that the money may not fund the performing arts center. Then, at Tuesday’s meeting,

one staff member went so far as to call out Maloney when she emphasized that it was a split vote in 2013 when the council voted to go forward with the application process. “I know there’s some history with that,” said Director of Community Development Michael Morales. “In the bigger picture, you’ve committed to a project. You have committed to a project. This is way deep into design, ready to go to bid fairly soon in a couple of months and at some point in time, we do also need to be mindful of the message we send to people who we are still trying to recruit to invest in this project. You’re committed to the project.” Did Morales mention that the city was committed to the project? Sounds to Mr. Federal Way like he’s trying to push his message through. Nevertheless, both Maloney and Honda countered his argument. “There has been some history with language similar to that as well that I think we need to steer clear of,” Maloney said of Morales’s statement. “We need to be very careful because the council needs to be able to ask these questions. Yeah, we have made certain commitments but we are still deciding on how to spend the people’s money and I take that very seriously, so I want to continue to ask questions. And I think that anyone who might be making those decisions, they’re going to understand that.” Mr. Federal Way hopes that council members continue to do what we elected them to do

— ask questions about how the city proposes to spend taxpayers’ money. And as for you other council and staff members who re-emphasize one thing but do another thing, stop playing politics. Q: Mr. Federal Way, the City Council recently called out to the community asking for people to serve on the pro and con committees to prepare written arguments in support and opposition to the ballot measure on whether to allow marijuanarelated businesses in the city. Can I still apply for that? A: Yes you may. The deadline to apply is Monday, June 22, so Mr. Federal Way recommends getting on this quickly. In fact, the city needs more applicants, especially for the con committee. So far, four people have applied for the pro committee (those arguing to authorize marijuana-related businesses in the city) and only one person has applied for the con committee. The city needs three people for both committees. Mr. Federal Way wonders where are all the people who have opined about banning the businesses in Federal Way? So much for their argument about marijuana making people forgetful. Q: Mr. Federal Way, what’s with all the Mirror publisher’s changing head gear the past few weeks? A: None of your business.

[ JOHNSON from page 6]

I hope that you’ll think carefully about what you do want to do, what is OK with you, and what you don’t want to do, what you’re not ready for and what is not OK with you. Should you choose to engage in any behavior that carries risk of pregnancy or disease transmission (i.e., oral sex, anal sex, vaginal sex, or genital contact with someone with certain diseases), I hope you will insist on using protection. Remember that the methods of contraception that do the best job preventing pregnancy don’t do a darned thing to prevent sexually transmitted diseases. Use condoms. Use condoms. Use condoms. The most common symptom of a sexually transmitted disease is no symptom, and unfortunately for you, one in four youth your age have one, and most don’t know it. Not knowing you have a sexually transmitted disease does nothing to keep it from being passed on, though, so be sure you and your partner get tested. And did I mention you should use condoms? You probably have people in your life who want you to wait to have sex. That’s because they care about you, and they know how much an unplanned pregnancy, disease, or nasty break up can mess up your life. But you’re graduating, and all of us adults who care about you won’t be with you while you make a lot of your decisions. Sure, you can call us, but we won’t be chaperoning you at every party or on every date or in every potentially compromising situation (thank, goodness, right?). What I hope for you is that you will think about all this and make the best choices you can. What I hope for you is that you know that sexual behavior should always be your choice. You can say no whenever you don’t want to, and you deserve to be listened to. No one should ever take this choice away from you. Likewise, you also have the responsibility to listen to what another person does and doesn’t want and to respect that. I hope that you will think about all this now, before you head off on your next adventure. I hope you will think about what you want, and what you don’t want. And I hope you will be true to yourself and not compromise who you are for anyone else.

pet of the week Rhyme and Reason are

8-year-old male cats, domestic short hair, black and white (ID No. A439270 (Rhyme); A459841 (Reason). Rhyme is mostly black, while Reason is mostly white. These brothers are sweet, friendly and affectionate, and would love to find a forever home together. Rhyme is more playful, while Reason likes to spend a lot of time in your lap and arms. Rhyme particularly likes the feather on a stick toy and the “trapped ball.” Both come right up to you when you enter their suite at the shelter. Rhyme will rub against your legs and let you pet him, while you hold Reason in your other arm. Both are litter box trained, neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped.

Police Chief Andy Hwang presented the President’s Call to Service Award to two outstanding and dedicated volunteers, Lottie Kinney and Frank Gabreluk, on Tuesday. This award was created by President George W. Bush in 2002. The service award was established to recognize the important contributions Americans of all ages are making within their communities through service and civic engagement. Both Kinney and Gabreluk have achieved 5,000 hours of volunteer service. This is equivalent to twoand-a-half years of full-time work, 40 hours per week, without taking any time off. Kinney is a native to Seattle, born and raised in the Northwest and a resident of Federal Way since 1990. In 2004, she came to the Federal Way Police Department as a volunteer after working for the King County Sheriff ’s Department as an evidence specialist, a high liability

Sound Transit to host public meetings FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Sound Transit Board kicked off a public involvement campaign to decide what mass transit projects should be studied as the final candidates for a Sound Transit 3 ballot measure. Community members throughout the fast-growing Puget Sound region can engage on ST3 priorities via an online survey, a new interactive website, public meetings and social media. “Continued expansion of our successful transit system through ST3 is critical to keeping our people and our economy moving,” said Sound Transit chair and King County Executive Dow Constantine. “It’s a pivotal time at Sound Transit, and we invite our riders to be a part of it.” The Sound Transit Board is seeking input on a draft list of projects to be considered possible candidates for the ST3 measure. After collecting input on the Draft Priority Projects

List, the Board will identify a final list of projects to be studied this fall. The results of those studies will support further narrowing by the Board to shape a draft ST3 measure for public input in early 2016. Potential projects emphasized so far by the Sound Transit board and earlier public input include but are not limited to building light rail extensions to Everett, Tacoma, downtown Redmond, Ballard and West Seattle, as well as bus rapid transit on I-405 and improving Sound Transit Express bus and Sounder commuter rail services and facilities. An interactive Sound Transit 3 website — — offers community members a chance to learn more about regional transit benefits, explore potential projects and take a survey through July 8. The campaign to promote public involvement will include Facebook posts and Twitter dialog using the #ST3 hashtag. Public meetings will also be held around the region, including in Federal Way. That meeting will run

from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on June 25 at the King County Aquatic Center, 650 S.W Campus Drive. The meeting will coincide with King County Metro Transit Long-Range Plan public meetings (more information at For the ST3 measure to be considered by voters in November 2016, the Washington State Legis-

lature must first grant the region additional local revenue authority. Members of the Sound Transit board are seeking $15 billion in new revenue authority and have emphasized it is critical for the Legislature to act on this and a statewide package of transportation investments before the current special session ends.
