Council candidates tackle marijuana, homeless day shelter Federal Way forum heats up when mayor calls out candidate BY RAECHEL DAWSON firstname.lastname@example.org
uring the last hour of the Federal Way Mirror’s candidate forum on Wednesday, things took a turn when Federal Way City Council candidate Mark Greene made a bold statement and Mayor Jim Ferrell called his bluff. In the midst of answering how Federal Way should attract more businesses to the city, Greene applauded the mayor for doing an “excellent job.” “And as everybody, well I shouldn’t say everybody, but as every political insider in Federal Way knows, I was chosen to be put in this race by the mayor’s political camp,” Greene said to an
audience of about 60. “And so I’m going to be there helping Mayor Ferrell attract business.” As Greene ended his answer, City Council candidate Anthony Murrietta took the microphone. Murrietta was about a minute into his answer of explaining why the Seattle and Tacoma ports make Federal Way an ideal location for businesses, in addition to easy accessibility to Interstate 5 and Sea-Tac Airport when he joked, “And apparently you heard it first today, Mayor Jim Ferrell apparently put Mark up here to do this.” The mayor was on his feet. “That is not accurate,” asserted Ferrell from the back of the room at Twin Lakes
Golf and Country Club. “That is not accurate!” After Murrietta rushed to explain his sarcasm and T.M. Sell, the forum’s emcee told the mayor to sit down, Ferrell said, “I have been injected into this forum and that is not accurate. We have never met.” The heat quickly cooled when Sell interrupted Greene, who tried to say Ferrell’s political aid had contacted him. “I’m sorry, it’s not your turn,” Sell said. “I believe Mr. Murrietta has a little bit of time left.” As the candidates resumed answering questions about the $8.2 million purchase of the former Target site, a preferred route for the Federal Way Link Extension and how more partnerships could be formed with faithbased organizations, the mystery of Greene’s state-

CARRIE RODRIGUEZ, the Mirror ment couldn’t be contained. The mayor had another opportunity to question Green during the “questions from the audience” portion of the night.
“Who was it that approached you and what in the world would make you think I had anything to do with your candidacy?” Ferrell asked.
Greene said he appreciated the mayor was trying to get out of him the exact identity of the mayor’s political aid but said he wouldn’t [ more COUNCIL, page 13 ]
Firefighter injured in fireworksrelated house fire BY RAECHEL DAWSON email@example.com
A South King Fire and Rescue firefighter was injured on the Fourth of July while battling a house fire. Firefighters responded to a house located in the 900 block of SW 346th Court in Federal Way after a 911 call came in at 3:38 p.m.
Firefighters pulled down the ceiling to ensure there was no fire between the sheet rock and roofing, according to Capt. Jeff Bellinghausen with South King Fire and Rescue. As they pulled it down, an adjacent panel, which was wet from being extinguished, came down and “smacked a firefighter on the head.” The dazed firefighter sustained a minor neck injury and is recovering at home after being checked out by a doctor.

brushfires in Federal Way, Bellinghausen said. At 4 a.m. on July 5, firefighters responded to a grass fire, 20-by-50-feet in size, on the BPA Trail. “A little after 4 a.m., our neighbor calls and says ‘Fire on the BPA Trail,’” wrote Federal Way resident Bruce Honda. “Nothing clears your head and things go into automatic response mode.” But firefighters were able to extinguish that fire fairly quickly. Bellinghausen said South King Fire and Rescue responded to 30 fires from July 1-5, 17 of which were related to fireworks.
The home sustained an estimated $350,000 in damages with the majority of damage stemming from the roof. Bellinghausen said the fire marshal investigated the cause of the fire and ruled out everything but fireworks, as the fire had started on the outside of the roof. “The takeaway from this is get renter’s insurance,” Bellinghausen said, noting the occupant lost a significant amount of their belongings in the fire.

Hundreds run Miles for Meso in Federal Way Hundreds of attendees of all ages strolled and ran in the fourth annual Miles for Meso Washington Memorial 5k Fun Run/Walk on Saturday at the Federal Way Community Center. Race organizers set a goal of raising $20,000 this year to support families and raise awareness about Mesothelioma, a malignant tumor of the lining of the lung, abdomen or heart caused by exposure to asbestos. Washington state has the highest number of cases of mesothelioma in the nation. The Miles for Meso event began four years ago thanks to the efforts of three women — Pat Dyhrman, Pat Hatley and Diana Stewart — to raise money for the foundation and to honor their husbands who died from mesothelioma.

Mirror’s endorsements for council, other local races
he Mirror’s editorial board endorses the following candidates in the 2015 primary election:
COUNCIL: ASSEFA-DAWSON AND MURRIETTA
In the race for Federal Way City Council, Position 1, the Mirror endorses incumbent Lydia Assefa-Dawson and Anthony Murrietta. Assefa-Dawson was appointed to the council 18 months ago to fill a vacant position and though she is still learning the issues, her experience in and passion for human services sets her apart. A native from Ethiopia, Assefa-Dawson came to the United States where she earned her master’s degree, raised three successful sons and currently works for the King County Housing Authority, where she offers financial services for survivors of domestic violence. Her goal is to show minorities in Federal Way that a college education and successful career are obtainable. Assefa-Dawson builds community through her volunteer positions and her outreach to various human service providers. Her approach to bringing people to the table to hear the many voices of the community is needed in Federal Way. She will bring experience and compassion to the office. Murrietta’s priorities for Federal Way are to attract living wage jobs, operate a cost-effective city government and to fix traffic — an issue on many of our minds. Currently president of Teamsters Local 763, Murrietta would bring real-world experience and practical common sense to the position. He would also bring creative solutions, including saving the city money by targeting inefficiencies, such as recycling police tires to use for training purposes. His approach to helping create employment for Federal Way’s entire population by creating internships that target various trades is needed in this city, where 75 percent of residents do not have college degrees. Mark Greene is also passionate about eliminating extravagant spending and he has a basic grasp of several issues facing the city. He would benefit from serving on city boards and as a community [ more EDITORIAL page 26 ]
PAEC at the point of no return? Have we reached the point of no return in the construction of the Performing Arts and Events Center? Will it get built no matter what the changing circumstance might be? And if that’s true, what do our city leaders do if the cost actually comes in higher than predicted? And remember the term “change order,” you might hear it again. That is a financial adjustment after construction starts that increases the price. Or what if some of the money doesn’t materialize as expected? The city did get some good news when two funding sources, including the state budget, came through with $4 million. But there is still divided opinion on the eventual outcome. Events center supporters still show absolute blind confidence in the plan coming together. Others have reservations, but also have their fingers crossed. Still others don’t believe the plan will come together and that more taxpayer funds will be needed. The rea-
son for concern is all the moving parts that must come together in the manner expected. But there are other residents who are simply cynical about the whole process and they may have good reason. The most recent discussion by the City Council on Mayor Jim Ferrell’s recommendation that the city use a Community Development Block Grant loan for funding rekindled a “Back to the Future” moment. Everyone was reminded of thenCouncilman (and candidate for mayor) Ferrell’s 2013 accusation that funding in this manner was like opening a credit card account and he, Councilwomen Kelly Maloney and Susan Honda voted “no” on Mayor Skip Priest’s proposal. It passed after discussion by the council, majority suggested the loan could be used for other needs, not just the events center. This time, it was Ferrell’s request that the council activate and use the credit card he previously opposed. Honda again voted no on the loan, while Kelly voted Bob Roegner

An act of kindness over watermelons This morning I was at Costco buying items for the community supper at Steel Lake. I stopped by the watermelon display, thinking how nice that would taste on such a hot day. I commented to the couple that were also looking at watermelons that I wondered
how many watermelons it would take for 70 people. Olivia repeated this question to Tony in a different language. He replied that he felt I would need 10 watermelons. I explained that my budget wouldn’t permit that kind of an expense, to which Olivia said she would pay for them. I protested that I hadn’t expected that and she replied that she could afford this and wanted to do it. Tony got another cart and really concentrated on picking out the best watermelons. They not only paid for the 10 watermelons but delivered them to my car. Olivia stated they live in Bellevue but came to Federal Way for a doctor’s appointment and she thought it was fate
that they would be there at that particular time. She asked where the supper would be held and I told her Steel Lake Presbyterian so she asked me if I was a Christian. When I replied yes, she stated that they were Buddhists but felt the important thing was that we have faith in something. This act of kindness really made my day and made all of our volunteers feel good.

Valley Cities to build 8-acre mental health campus BY ANDREW FICKES For the Mirror
ing County is facing a mental health crisis. Despite a unanimous ruling by the Washington State Supreme Court last August that affirmed boarding psychiatric patients in emergency departments for hours before beds become available was unconstitutional, there is still the problem of where to safely put these patients after they’ve been discharged. This year in King County alone, more than 3,000 psychiatric patients who are a danger to themselves and/ or others and are involuntarily committed, will be turned away from emergency rooms with virtually no place to go, according to Valley Cities Counseling & Consultation. The nonprofit, which serves low-income mental health patients in King County, said that is not right. This year, Valley Cities responded to a request for proposal from King County. “They selected us and another provider to find a location and go through the permitting process and either remodel or build from the ground up an inpatient psychiatric unit,” said Ken Taylor, chief executive officer of Valley Cities. The other provider selected is Telecare Corporation. What Valley Cities has planned is the Woodmont Recovery Center, composed of five buildings on an 8-acre campus, including an evaluation and treatment center that houses 16 involuntary beds and eight voluntary beds. “We hope to start construction on the evaluation and treatment center this
July 10, 2015 
fall,” Taylor said. “By late in the second quarter of 2016, we hope to be open to admit patients.” The mental health campus will be located at the corner of 272nd Street and Pacific Highway South in Des Moines, one block north of the Federal Way city limits. “This is the first time we have built a campus from the ground up, and we think it’s groundbreaking,” Taylor said. “We’re figuring out the ways to lower the barriers to access. People who have a history of mental illness, many of whom are low income, over-utilize emergency departments. They may not have a primary doctor or clinic; what we’re trying to do is help them to navigate this complex system of care and services.” With permission from the city of Des Moines, Valley Cities has plans to construct five buildings on the campus over the next four to five years, as funds become available. The probable second building under construction, Taylor said, will be a three-story outpatient and administration building. Valley Cities is in discussion with Health Point to provide dental and primary medical care in this building. Valley Cities will provide behavioral health services. “(Our partnership with Health Point) has been a stunning success,” Taylor said. “What we want to achieve at Woodmont is an integrated approach to providing medical care to those in need.” Taylor said Valley Cities considers medical care to be broadly defined, and looks at the whole body. “There is a lot of research that substantiates connect[ more RECOVERY, page 27 ]

Fire commissioner candidates sound off on bond failure, transparency BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ firstname.lastname@example.org
andidates for South King Fire and Rescue’s commissioner Position 2 sounded off on topics ranging from the district’s recent bond failure to transparency and nepotism during the Mirror’s candidate forum on Wednesday night. Longtime campaigners Roger Flygare and Jerry Galland, as well as political newcomer Bill Fuller addressed approximately 60 people during the forum, which was held at the Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club. They are running for longtime commissioner Mark Freitas’s open seat as he is not seeking reelection. Flygare attributed the failure of the fire district’s recent $53.7 million bond to voter confusion. In addition to South King Fire’s measure — which would have replaced equipment, facilities, vehicles, as well as fund an additional fire station and fleet maintenance shop — King County also had a Proposition 1 on April’s special election ballot to fund the region’s emergency public safety radio network. The King County measure passed. “I also heard comments and talking to people that there might have been too big of an ask,” said Flygare, who was on the pro-committee for South King Fire’s ballot measure. He added that fire commissioners have also heard this concern and plan to come back with some different ideas about how to go forward with potentially putting two new propositions before the voters — one this year and another later. Galland agreed that the bond’s price tag was too high, however, he said the measure didn’t fail because of any confusion. “I believe the bond measure failed because the district was asking for too much and it was a surprise
to the voters,” said Galland, who was on the concommittee for the measure. “The preparation that went out on that was very short. (The district) indicated that they were going to hold a lot of public meetings and they didn’t. They didn’t get out in the community and share the need. So a lot of what was going on — you can mention confusion on the ballot — but it was a raise in taxes and it was a large ask, it was a very large ask and I don’t believe the community knew what that was going to go towards.” Fuller agreed with Galland that voters were unaware of the bond issue. He spoke with some of his neighbors, who “were really not aware of what the issues were and I’m not sure that they were communicated well … We’ve got some equipment age issues and we need to solve some of those. The public needs to be aware of what the issues are and that they are getting a tremendous bargain.” So how would the candidates maintain the fire department’s equipment? Flygare held up his wrist. “This watch here — talk about buying quality equipment — this is a watch that I bought in 1970 in Saigon, Vietnam,” he said, as the audience laughed. “These shoes that I have on right now I bought for my wedding day, 1976. So having good equipment that lasts a long time is very important.” Both Flygare and Fuller support the fire district establishing its own in-house maintenance shop, as they said contract maintenance is costly. Fuller said if he’s elected as commissioner, he will focus on preventative maintenance of the district’s equipment. “I spent most of my career working in pulp mills and the real goal is preventative maintenance because when you have breakdown maintenance, it’s very expensive,” said Fuller, who
worked at Weyerhaeuser for 35 years as a senior scientific advisor and other capacities. All three candidates acknowledged that the district has antiquated equipment. However, Galland said the fire agency has had opportunities in the past to use existing revenues to purchase equipment. “We haven’t done that,” Galland said. “Instead, we’ve come to the voters in this big bundle activity … So equipment is vital, it needs to be there, I think there’s a direction that it should have gone and it hasn’t.” The candidates also addressed how they would work cohesively with other commissioners, while not being a rubber stamp for the district. Flygare said as a small business owner, he’s a state and federal contractor. To be successful in his court reporting business, he said he has to do his research, build his budget, look at equipment and “analyze as you move along.” He said he’s been successful doing that “and the people that I work with appreciate that. And I’ll take that skill with me to the fire department. I think it’s really important that you know how to work with people.” Galland, a longtime South King Fire activist, emphasized he is not a rubber stamp. “I believe that one of the things that helps to make things happen in the district or any organization, especially a public agency, is the viewpoints opposing what you might believe is the absolute God-given truth on something,” Galland said. He said he respects Freitas for issues he’s faced as a commissioner, especially in the past year, due to a lack of cohesiveness on the current board. “I believe that I can do a lot on the board that I can’t do from the audience,” Galland added. “I’m going to
be more vocal than Mr. Frietas was. I’m going to be a little bit more insistent that Mr. Freitas was. And the citizens are demanding that already. You’re seeing that in the bond failure. They need answers, they need information they’re not getting, so they’re asking for a citizen to step forward and do that and I’m volunteering. I’m stepping into the hornet’s nest, if you will, and I will not be a rubber stamp.” Fuller would bring his skills in conflict resolution and problem solving to the board. He said one of the key things in problem solving is gathering all the facts and data, analyzing those facts, working at creative alternatives “and then discussing them and discussing them some more.” However, Fuller said as he looked at the minutes of past commissioner meetings, “it’s very difficult to evaluate discussions and whether things are rubber stamped … I’ve seen a little bit of discussion, but I’d like to see more of that kind of analysis, reports made available, lots of data — as a scientist, a lot of data. I spend all my time analyzing data. That’s what we have to do, whether it’s maintenance or statistics on responses.” To improve transparency on the fire district’s board, Fuller said he would form committees and involve the public to draw knowledge from them. “The transparency will come simply because the commissioners know it’s important and they can do it through more frequent communication, through TV,” Fuller added. “I haven’t seen the department featured on the local TV what a good job we’re doing. We have a fall program that is working on fall prevention … but it needs to get out there and be made known. It’s not transparency about what’s wrong; it’s transparency about showing folks what is working and why
Candidates for South King Fire and Rescue’s commissioner Position 2 (left to right) Jerry Galland, Bill Fuller and Roger Flygare answer questions from the audience during the Mirror’s candidate forum on Wednesday. Terrence Hill, the Mirror our department is doing so well.” Galland said he doesn’t believe anyone “in the history of this fire department has asked for more public records than I have. A lot of that is because I need to — you need to. If you want to see (the records), you need to go and request them because they don’t tell you about them. They don’t tell you about committee meetings, they don’t tell you about a lot of activities. They don’t even keep minutes of their committee meetings like you have with the City Council. So if you want to find out what’s going on in the district, you have to ask questions because they’re not open and accountable. I believe that I can change that.” Galland said if elected he would ensure the fire district’s committee meetings were posted on the district’s website and reports of those meetings were made available to the public. Flygare said if the fire district has a problem with transparency, then the department could take steps to make its committee meetings open to the public by videotaping the meetings and posting those videos to the district’s website. “That seems to be a very simple thing to do and then people wouldn’t have to necessarily troop down to the fire department where they hold their meetings, but they could watch them
on the website and offer input after that,” Flygare said. “I haven’t heard of any real significant problems.” South King Fire has recently faced issues involving nepotism and the candidates addressed their viewpoints on the matter. Both Fuller and Galland agreed that the district should avoid nepotism. “I’d avoid it if I can. Only if there’s an exceptional skill that you need to bring on board would I go against that,” said Fuller. Galland said one of the biggest problems with nepotism is that it creates a perception problem with the public, who may perceive it as favoritism. “ … As far as bloodlines, I don’t believe that that should be there,” Galland said. “I think that if you want to be a firefighter, there’s other fire district’s that you can go be a firefighter in; you don’t have to be in your parent’s district.” Flygare addressed the issue directly with fire department officials. “I was told that there is no direct-line supervision to family members of the few family members who might work there,” Flygare said. “If there is direct supervision and there is a conflict there, then that could be bad but I was assured talking to the fire department that doesn’t happen. It’s just rumors that we hear and that’s not good.”
Lakehaven commissioner candidates aim to keep operations running smoothly BY TERRENCE HILL email@example.com
Editor’s note: Due to the Mirror’s scheduling error, Peter Sanchez was the only candidate for Lakehaven Utility District’s commissioner Position 3 who was able to attend the candidate
forum on Wednesday. The Mirror strives for accuracy and regrets the error. With the exception of minor technological changes, the candidates for Lakehaven Utility District’s commissioner Position 3 hope to maintain the dis-
trict’s status quo. Political newcomers Peter Sanchez, Richard Peterson and Randy Smith addressed their qualifications and what they would bring to the table, if elected, during the Mirror’s candidate forum on Wednesday at the Twin Lakes Golf and
Country Club. Sanchez attended the event, while Peterson and Smith provided statements that were read to those in attendance. A resident of Federal Way for 33 years, Sanchez was asked a series of questions at the forum. The first
was what he thought were the two biggest issues facing Lakehaven and how he would address them. “There’s two things that are a constant: Water supply and waste water treatment,” Sanchez said. “You can have all the water you want, but if you don’t have the
proper treatment, you have a problem.” Sanchez touched on state and federal regulations that will affect both topics. He mentioned that soon they will be required to deal with nutrient removal (removal of nitrogen and/or [ more LAKEHAVEN, page 7 ]

phosphorus from water) in the near future. While he didn’t know what Lakehaven faced from a financial standpoint, he mentioned that Southwest Suburban Sewer District faced a potential bill of $30-50 million per treatment plant. Sanchez said there is a possibility that rates may rise in the near future, and while commissioners will have no say over it, he is prepared to meet the challenges that will come with it. Peterson addressed Lakehaven’s top issue in his statement, including “continued clean and safe drinking water and effective and sanitary sewer treatment to meet the needs of our growing community … in ways that respect our environment while ensuring long-term viability for future generations.” Peterson also mentioned cost management that would keep rates as low as possible while maintaining high accountability and long-term planning for the future for inevitable growth and tools to continue to excel at service, such as through computer infra-
structure and networks. Smith said technology, transparency and environmental responsibility are what he would like to get to work on, according to his statement. He believes Lakehaven needs a more customer friendly website and to save money by allowing customers to receive their bills electronically. Smith would also like to have all commission meetings streamed live or available on video services for all to enjoy. Finally, Smith believes future rate increases could be limited through an incentive rainwater catching program. He would like for residents to collect and store rainwater to help take the demand off the system. The collected water would be used to water lawns, gardens, wash cars, etc. Smith would like to implement a coupon system for customers who do this, such as the one used by Puget Sound Energy for using LED light bulbs. Sanchez was then asked why voters should vote for him over the other candidates. Sanchez believes his work “in the trenches” is an asset to him as he started out at

accountability,” Peterson wrote in his statement. “I have a proven track record of faithful stewardship of assets and resources and I believe these skills and talents are transferrable to my role as one of your commissioners.” Smith believes that his residency in Federal Way for most of the last 49 years is a huge asset to the community. He also previously worked in the city directly. “I have served as commissioner on the Federal Way Parks and Recreations Commission and served on the site selection committee for the new Federal Way High School,” Smith wrote in his statement. “As your utility’s commissioner I will not only be looking out for today, but will be looking out in to the distant future and redefining what is needed to meet the needs of the community water and sewer needs. Designing and building infrastructure in advance of growth projections saves us all money.” When asked what changes he would make to Lakehaven, Sanchez didn’t believe there were necessarily any changes that needed to be made. “I wouldn’t be so pre-

the bottom rungs of the Southwest Suburban Sewer District, where he has worked for 32 years. He has a group four certification in waste water treatment, the highest obtainable in the state. “I’ve been out in all kinds of weather at all kinds of hours dealing with it,” Sanchez said. “I know what operators face both on the water side and the waste water side. I’ve worked very close with other utilities and I understand what it takes. I believe that I can offer a different perspective and an understanding that most people don’t have.” Peterson mentioned his background in his statement. He believes that his service as the director of Catholic Cemeteries in the state of Washington since 1991 has “uniquely positioned” him to serve as utility district commissioner. One of the cemeteries he oversees in Gethsemane Cemetery in Federal Way. “I am running for the position of commissioner because my background and work history have been entirely about service to people, business management, long-term planning and development and

Lakehaven commissioner candidate Peter Sanchez answers questions during the Mirror’s candidate forum. RAECHEL DAWSON, the Mirror sumptuous to tell you what changes I’d make,” Sanchez said. “What I know about the district is that it’s running well. I don’t know of any issue that needs a change right away or anytime soon. I know that it can be terrible, but these gentlemen have done a good job and I’m not going to say there should be any changes.” Peterson did not explicitly state any changes he would make in his statement, but he did also praise the Lakehaven Utility District’s current work. “I have worked in Federal Way since 1985 and have lived in Federal Way since
1988,” Peterson wrote in his statement. “It is in this community that my wife and I raised our family. As residents of the community, we, like you, have benefited from excellent service and low rates provided by Lakehaven Utility District’s water and sewer service.” Smith is hoping to significantly change the district’s website, scrapping the current website and starting over. He would implement a one-click login system on the site as well. His previously mentioned changes to billing and streaming are also changes he would like to make.

APPLEBEE’S PARTNERS WITH ALEX’S LEMONADE STAND FOUNDATION
Fifteen years ago, the beginning of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation grew from the front yard lemonade stand of 4-year-old cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott. Today, the foundation bearing her name has become one of the nation’s leading philanthropic organizations in support of pediatric cancer research. A month-long campaign that kicked off June 29 marks the 11th consecutive year that franchisees of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar have supported Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Coming off a record of more than $1 million fundraising proceeds generated in 2014, and nearly $5 million raised since 2005, more than 870 Applebee’s restaurants nationwide will work toward topping the $6 million mark in 2015. As part of the brand’s broader Applebee’s Serves program, participating restaurants will raise funds in support of Alex’s foundation. Fundraising efforts, which vary by restaurant, include donating a portion of each lemonade and Summer Squeeze sales to the foundation. Applebee’s guests may also have an opportunity to donate to the foundation through the purchase of a paper lemon in support of childhood cancer research. Applebee’s restaurants will also host a variety of events, including lemonade stands, golf tournaments, donation nights and more. Contact your local Applebee’s for further information and event details. For more information on this year’s Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation fundraising efforts, visit the Federal Way Applebee’s located at 1801 S. 320th St. in Federal Way.
Local hairstylist earns Young Careerist title Advocate for sex trafficking victims to extend services ‘beyond the cut’ BY RAECHEL DAWSON firstname.lastname@example.org
n the midst of living in 19 countries in one year, 25-year-old Jessica Dahl found herself in Thailand’s Red Light District having conversations with young girls and women trapped in the sex trafficking trade. “That stole my heart and I had to do something about it,” Dahl said of her experience during the World Race trip with Adventures in Mission. It was because of this work and her drive to do more that Dahl was nominated and recently won the Young Careerist title from the Business and Professional Women’s Foundation at a state conference. Dahl was among three participants in the competition who were judged on written biographical information, personal interviews, group interaction, a four-minute speech and leadership qualities. “Business and Professional Women’s Foundation supports women both personally, professionally and politically,” said Susan Lipston, the state president of Business and Professional Women in Washington. “And Jessica was able to rise to the occasion.” Prior to taking that lifechanging trip, the Todd Beamer High School/ Highline College Running Start graduate went straight to beauty school and held a year-long apprenticeship at the Hair Lounge in Federal Way, which she describes as one of the most “intensive years” of her life. “Just very much in the way of leadership and mentoring and taking every-
thing that you learned from school and following the absolute best,” she said, noting that she still works there today as well as at Salon Matarazzo in Bellevue. But it was while she was working at one of the top hair salons in Los Angles and teaching “crazy boot camps out on the beach” when she realized she was trying to get to the top of something. Not knowing quite what that was, Dahl gathered her backpack, tent and shears to “get outside of your [sic] own box and experience other lives.” From there, the World Race trip took her to places many can only imagine. “Sometimes I was working with an orphanage, sometimes we were on top of a mountain 45 minutes away from anything social,” she said. “Sometimes it was a completly flooded place and you’re helping build a church or you’re working in a small village for trafficking and trying to bring awareness to families.” Each person on the trip utilized their own skills and Dahl’s was cutting hair and promoting health. After her encounter with prostitutes in Thailand, Dahl felt she had to do something more. She joined the board of directors for an organization called Justice and Soul Foundation. The foundation has a beauty school in Cambodia and enlists volunteers to travel all over the world. And for two months last October, Dahl spent her time helping others at the beauty school. “It reminds you, you have a gift and how you can use it beyond yourself. So for me, it was one of my biggest turning points to realize that I don’t just work in a hair salon to work in a hair salon,” she said. “I don’t just do hair to do hair. It goes way beyond that and I want

Dahl has traveled to 19 countries as well as to Cambodia to help with the Justice and Soul Foundation. Contributed photo to share that with everyone.” Dahl said so many women are taught to believe if they look good on the outside and their “genitals are intact” then that’s all that matters. “And that’s not OK,” she said. “My outreach is to broaden the minds of people in these beauty industries to use their gift to do things like help those that would be less fortunate and not able to on their own.” And if Dahl wasn’t busy enough, to promote this awareness of using your gift to help others, she and another hair stylist are in the process of creating a nonprofit. Although the name of the nonprofit is still in the works, their vision is very clear. The two hope to create a large event called Beyond the Cut. With the help of many volunteer hairstylists, Beyond the Cut will provide as many free haircuts to those in need as possible in one day and one location. “We’re using our gift, let’s pay it forward and let’s give without trying to receive anything back,” she said.
“There’s a lot of people that would never ever be able to have somebody just offer an open hand or to sit and have a conversation or just remind them that they have value and worth.” Dahl was inspired to create Beyond the Cut after giving a rundown, tired and unhappy woman a haircut on a stump one day. “We didn’t speak the same language but we could communicate,” Dahl said. “And so, I had my shears with me and I basically asked, ‘Can I cut your hair?” Within 20 minutes, Dahl proclaimed the woman’s life had changed in her hands. “The rest of the month she was all giddy, throwing her hair around and just a completely different person, so for me, that changed everything.” Although the date is subject to change based on location availability, the Beyond the Cut event is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 4. Hairstylists interested in volunteering should contact Dahl at jessdahl24@ gmail.com. “Beyond the Cut is focused on everyone,” she said. “Some people might
not want to help with sex trafficking. We want to open it up to where all people are welcome.” Dahl is also involved in an organization called Real Escape from the Sex Trade, or REST. Now, Dahl looks forward to stepping into other leadership roles, being mentored by the Business and Professional Women’s Foundation and picking another young careerist for next year’s state competition. “I think that being a leader, you have to be willing to be mentored and mentor other people,” she said. “The young careerist is somebody that is driven and may already be doing something but … I can be mentored, I can go to people that can help me or teach me how to present in front of people or gain other insights and just be with other women who are serving their community. It’s a really neat and exciting thing to be a part of.” For more information on the Business and Professional Women’s Foundation, visit bpwfoundation. org.
and how World Vision was meeting that need. “Current donors and potential donors were our audience,” Chandler said. Chandler’s videos and Reid’s news articles were dispersed across World Vision’s social media network, like YouTube, Facebook and the World Vision website. Chandler and Reid arrived in Nepal two days following the earthquake.
They worked together, and sometimes separately, for two weeks before returning to Federal Way on May 10. “We started at the international airport in Kathmandu and did a good bit (of reporting) around there before setting out into the countryside,” Reid said. “It’s a very different situation when you get out in the urban areas where you have to park and walk and climb
into the small villages in the mountains.” As Chandler and Reid ventured through the villages, documenting as they went, they said they saw pockets of poorly constructed, multi-story buildings that had collapsed like dominoes onto other buildings that were otherwise sturdy. “We were focusing on people and their needs,” [ more WORLD, page 17 ]
World Vision in Federal Way provides relief to the people of Nepal BY ANDREW FICKES For the Mirror
A devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake erupted in the south-central Asian country of Nepal between the Himalayas and Kathmandu, the capital on April 25. Many villages were flattened, historic buildings were reduced to rubble and thousands died or were injured.
Meanwhile, thousands of miles away at World Vision headquarters in Federal Way, Ben Chandler, a video producer at World Vision, and Kathryn Reid, a humanitarian news editor for the global nonprofit, mobilized to go as a team to Nepal where they would transmit back video, still photography and news articles, documenting the need of the people there

Federal Way family bonds through bike riding BY TERRENCE HILL email@example.com
eremy Cucco and his family were visiting southern France in mid-July of 2012. They were spending some time in the Pyrenees Mountains when they happened to see part of an event that would continue to shape their lives to this day. “My son had just turned seven and had barely gotten the training wheels off his bike,” Cucco said. “We ended up seeing a small portion of the Tour de France. My son saw it and said ‘That’s what I want to do.’” Cucco’s son William, who is now 10, was awestruck as he saw the riders training during one of their rest days. They had just missed out on seeing part of the actual race. It did not matter, William knew he was going to get serious about his bike riding after seeing just the training. At the time, Cucco and his wife Olivia owned bikes, but they were not into biking all that much. It was not until William got serious about it that they did too. “[William] kept getting faster and stronger,” Cucco said. “When he started riding for real, we got nicer bikes. Next thing you know, we’re doing faster rides, riding more often and just having a lot of fun.” Cucco said it took him a lot less time than it should have to get interested in long bike rides. He ended up doing his first 100 mile ride by September that same year. At the time, they still lived in Virginia. The terrain there made it slightly easier to get into long rides because it was much flatter than here in Washington. The first long distance ride the two did together was the Mount Vernon Trail in Washington D.C., a 36-mile round trip. “[William] was still on a kid’s bike then,” Cucco said.
“He said that he wanted to do that ride on his birthday, so we did. Then we went and watched The Avengers.” They have now lived in the area for two years; a move they made to be closer to nature. Since the move, William has gotten into racing. He has raced both for fun and in sanctioned events. Prior to allowing his son to race, Cucco tried it out for himself, as he knew it could be challenging. “I know I’m not going pro at my age,” Cucco said with a laugh. “I just wanted to try it out to see what it was like. I wanted to know what it meant to be in a race and learn some of the terminology.” Recently, William joined Rad Racing, a junior development racing team. The new focus on racing has not stopped the two from enjoying a non-competitive long distance ride. On May 30, they completed the Flying Wheels Summer Century, a 100-mile ride through the Snoqualmie Valley. They often join in with many of the Cascade Biking Club’s lengthy rides. Since coming to Washington, they have ridden throughout many cities including Federal Way, Orting, La Conner, Elma and others. Just a week ago, they were at the San Juan Islands where they climbed Mount Constitution on their bicycles. The three members of the family use cycling as a way to bond in their spare time as well. While Cucco and William are competitive, Olivia isn’t. The bike rides give them an opportunity to chat about everything together. They often talk about friends, family and school while riding before going out to eat. “I think [bike riding] is good overall,” Cucco said. “You don’t have to be obsessive over performance. You

get to experience getting to places in different ways. When you hop in a car to go somewhere, you don’t get to smell the lavender fields and other things like that.” As riding season is coming to its end, the two still have a few plans for the year. On July 11-12, they will be participating in the Seattle to Portland ride that features 10,000 riders. They will go 206 miles in two days. “I did it last year,” Cucco said. “This year they kept asking if we were going to do
West Fork Hylebos Creek project to improve fish access in Federal Way FROM STAFF REPORTS
Chinook, coho and chum salmon will soon find their travels through Federal Way much easier. A project this summer will replace a 90-year-old box culvert and realign and re-grade the West Fork Hylebos Creek under State Route 99, making it easier for fish and other wildlife to use the waterway. Contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation began work in June, with the major work expected in July, including a full weekend closure of SR-99. The existing 6-by-6 foot culvert was installed in 1925 and is too small to accommodate fish traveling through the creek. Replacing it with a 10-by-20 foot culvert will provide more room for fish and other wildlife. Fast-moving water rushing over large drops in many areas washed away the creek bed and created significant drops, making the creek impassable for
it. I didn’t think I was going to this year, but eventually Will said, ‘I want to do Seattle to Portland this year.’ So we decided we’d take part. It’s challenging.” One of the other big goals for the two of them is to take part in the GranFondo Banff in British Columbia. William will also be participating in races the rest of the year, including the Northwest Juniors Classic Stage Race. He would like to turn pro at some point and eventually
do the Tour de France. His father says that is still far off, however. “Right now he needs to concentrate mostly on the fact that it’s fun,” Cucco said. “For right now [he’s] a kid. He’s interested in other things too and I wouldn’t want him to just focus on this. He wants to be an astrophysicist. But we have years and years to worry about all of that. Everyday he surprises us with what he can do.”
fish. “We’re going to rebuild and realign the creek to create a meandering stream with a gentler slope,” said Mike Askarian, a project engineer for the Washington State Department of Transportation. “We’ll also add woody debris in areas to give fish places to rest. This will provide better habitat for migrating and spawning fish.” When the project is completed, an additional 1.7 miles of upstream spawning habitat will be accessible in the Hylebos watershed. Non-native trees and shrubs like cherry laurel, Himalayan blackberry, knotweed and reed canary grass have moved into the area but they’ll be replaced with native species like Oregon ash, Sitka spruce, western red cedar, black twinberry, Indian plum, red osier dogwood and salmonberry. Replacing the culvert will require a full weekend closure of SR-99 from Southwest 356th Street to South 373rd Street as about 100 feet of roadway has to be removed as part of the project. The closure is tentatively scheduled for early August. Drivers will take about a six-mile detour to Interstate 5 during the closure and should add about 10 minutes to their travel time.

subsequent email, Greene told the Mirror he’s aware that the emails don’t reflect this but “that was pretty much said during the one long phone call we (Truppner and I) had back in December of ‘14, if I’m not mistaken about the month, which I am 99 percent certain is the right month.” When the forum ended, Ferrell reflected on the validity of Greene’s statements. “He said I had somebody, or essentially he implied that I put him up to running, which is absolutely untrue,” Ferrell told the Mirror in an interview. “Then he made reference to a former campaign manager of mine and so the only former campaign manager of mine is Chris … I’ve made no contact with Chris about candidates running for office. I have never met this individual [Greene].” Ferrell said he was not going to stand back and let somebody say false claims about him in a public setting, especially when it put the impression that he was endorsing someone over current Councilwoman Lydia Assefa-Dawson, or Murrietta, the mayor’s friend. “I felt I had two options as that happened,” Ferrell said. “The first is to remain silent and let this play out and have an opportunity to talk to you later or ask that question. Not knowing whether I would be given that opportunity, I made a decision to stand up and really call out Mr. Greene, who I thought was making a misrepresentation that I was not going to allow.” Truppner, the mayor’s former campaign manager who was accused of telling Greene to run for council
disclose that information until he had permission. “Your campaign manager for your mayor’s race,” Greene said. “He’s the one that contacted me first and he’s the one who pushed me into this race because I was dead set on running for state representative. I thought, ‘Wow, you think I got a chance getting elected for this’ in so many words. I came to the conclusion that I’ll forget about state representative and run for council.” But Greene would still not say who it was, even when South King Fire and Rescue Commissioner James Fossos pressed him. “Sir, I have proof in the form of an email,” Greene replied to Fossos. “I’m not going to disclose that right now unless I have his permission but I said it was the campaign’s manager. How many campaign managers did (Ferrell) have?” In Greene’s closing statement, he announced he would send the Mirror more information. “A member of the audience basically called me a liar and, so, to counteract that, I am going to send an email regarding the mayor’s camp basically putting me in this position to the editor of the Federal Way Mirror,” Green said. “I don’t like somebody calling me a liar unless you’ve got proof to back it up.” The Mirror did receive multiple forwarded emails from Greene corresponding with the mayor’s former campaign manager Chris Truppner, however, none of them indicated the mayor had asked for Greene to run for council, nor that he would endorse him. In a
on behalf of the mayor, said Greene’s statements are false. “I, in fact, did not ask him to run for this position,” said Truppner, who was at the forum. “I did not use the mayor in any form except that I did work for the mayor on his campaign and that’s public information, you can find that out anywhere.” Truppner said he would never do that to his clients, nevertheless the mayor. As a political consultant, the only contact Truppner has had with Greene is an email he sent requesting services, which Greene never utilized. “I have had no contact with him about this race,” he said. “I have not worked with him in any capacity. So until now, I have not heard this.”
TACKLING THE ISSUES
In spite of the night’s dramatics, City Council candidates for Position 1 were able to give their opinion on pressing matters facing the city of Federal Way’s future. When asked whether they support legalizing zoning for recreational retail marijuana, production and processing — there’s currently a moratorium on these businesses in Federal Way — Murrietta was the only one in favor. “Fifty-three percent of voters voted for legalized marijuana in the state of Washington and I find it very difficult to believe in their wisdom they didn’t want legal access within the city of Federal Way,” Murrietta said. “I also believe that by allowing legalized marijuana shops, it’s going to take it away from the black market. Marijuana has been illegal for I don’t know how many years yet children

have had access to it as have adults because they get it on the black market.” Taking it out of the black market and funneling potential funds from the legalized sale could benefit citizens, Murrietta continued. Assefa-Dawson acknowledged her vote against marijuana zoning as part of the Land Use and Transportation Committee and said her main concern lies with access to youth. “By legalizing it and making it potentially more accessible, we’re telling the youth that it’s OK and that’s not where I stand on the issue,” Assefa-Dawson said, acknowledging the citizen advisory vote in November will give the council a better understanding on what action to take. “It’s all about our community as a whole. It’s about what we bring to the citizens of Federal Way… I still stand by what I believe and it’s not good for young kids, it’s not good for their brain development and if we care about the future of our city and the future of our citizens, this has to take precedence over whether or not it is available.” Greene agreed. “I think that America, we have a very serious acculturation problem,” he said. “Our morals are going downhill. Kids are being conditioned by very obnoxious … entertainment shows and morality has been taken out of the schools. We need to put the morality pro-
grams into schools.” All agreed that the city should invest in a day shelter for the homeless, a controversial issue the city has not taken immediate action on due to lack of Human Services funding. Assefa-Dawson expressed her empathy for the homeless through experiences of her own. “I’ve never been on the streets, however, thank God there were people who came through for me when I couldn’t make ends meet,” she said. “So, I lived with my friend but I was separated from my children during the 10 months that I was staying with my friends, so I can’t imagine what it’s like to be on the streets, not knowing where you’re going to be.” She said homelessness affects more than just the person on the street waving a sign, panhandling. Families and children are affected too, she said, adding that the day shelter will be a one-stop-shop with a multitude of services to help those in need. Murrietta questioned if the city spent $32 million on the Performing Arts and Events Center and the $8 million purchase of the former Target site, then why couldn’t the city afford to coordinate a day center. “I’m not criticizing, I’m just pointing out that I believe our priorities need to take care of all of our citizens,” he said. Whether it be people
affected by the economic downturn, those with mental health issues or drug or alcohol addiction, Murrietta believes the day center should be more than a place for the homeless to bathe, wash their clothes and use computers or telephones. “We should be coordinating where they can go to take care of their mental health, physical health issues,” he said. “We should be ensuring we’re an intricate part of the solution and not just having the NIMBY effect of nobody wants this issue in their backyard because it’s not pretty when I see a homeless person. The reality of it is it’s a part of our society and we have a moral obligation to fix this.” Greene said the city needs to do everything it can to make provisions for persons in need — not just the homeless, but the disabled and those who are tight on their rent or mortgage payments. “The city needs to come up with all kinds of possible arrangements to help these people,” Greene said. “But, as I said, we have to be frugal with the taxpayer’s money and get their approval before we do anything that’s extravagant.” The primary election will be held on Aug. 4. The top two candidates will advance to the November general election on Nov. 3. Ballots will be mailed on July 15 to all registered voters in King County.

County Councilman Pete von Reichbauer honors late WSU president FROM STAFF REPORTS
King County Councilman Pete von Reichbauer recognized Washington State University President Elson Floyd at a recent County Council meeting. This recognition, honoring the late president and his legacy, was presented to Washington State University Regent Ron Sims and Washington State University Vice President for Government Relations Colleen Kerr. “President Floyd was a man for all seasons, and an advocate for all sections of our state,” von Reichbauer said. “He was a true visionary — and his vision was for the entire state.”
Floyd was highly sought after for leadership positions at higher education institutions around the nation prior to becoming president at Washington State University, which he considered to be “the best job in the country,” according to King County representatives. His vision to expand the university’s presence throughout the entire state and to increase higher education opportunities to students from various backgrounds became a reality when campuses in Spokane, the Tri-Cities, Vancouver and Everett were established. Floyd’s legacy will not only impact Washington State University, but also the entire state of Washington through his belief in the importance of education and developing new doctors. Floyd is survived by his wife Carmento, his children, his parents and his brothers.

Reid said. “I did still photography and wrote news stories to send back to headquarters and for direct mail to particular groups like churches and to World Vision partnerships in other countries.” Chandler said they were not the only World Vision communicators. Other World Vision communications offices in places like Africa, Malaysia, Mexico, Australia and India sent teams to document. Though Federal Way is home base for World Vision — where it’s been located since moving operations from California in 1995 — the Christian humanitarian organization has global offices and a contingent of aid workers in nearly 100 countries, all with the objective to combat poverty and injustice the underprivileged suffer. For example, World Vision has more than 200 staff based in Nepal and for the past decade more than 70 projects have been underway, focusing on maternal and child health, education, child protection, livelihoods, water, sanitation and hygiene. “We have a World Vision base in Nepal,” said Amy Parodi, World Vision’s media relations director based in

Federal Way. “We already know what the needs are and the language spoken there. In Nepal’s case, we’ve already done disaster preparedness in that area.” Parodi said that global offices respond to localized flooding and earthquake relief. In the case of a large disaster, a global response team is dispatched. Because of World Vision’s decade-long presence in Nepal, Parodi said it was many of the aid workers, in fact, who were impacted by the recent earthquake — many of their homes destroyed. Chandler said there was no telling what impact his and Reid’s work had on the increase in financial donations to help in the aid work. “Watching the view count on Facebook going up was great,” Chandler said. Parodi said to date World Vision International has raised more than $36 million worldwide for the response in Nepal. Reid, who has been with World Vision for nearly five years, said she loves nothing better than to talk to people about their needs and helping them make those connections to help their needs be met. “There are things that we see that our donors don’t have the opportunity to see,” Reid said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity and responsibility to be able to connect them.” Chandler has been with World Vision for nearly three years. He said he loves to share people’s stories. “I see myself as the conduit between those who need help and the people who can provide the need,” he said. Chandler said he will travel to Peru in less than two months to document work being done there. Reid said a return trip to Nepal is not in the plans, but she said she would love to return to see the progress being made there. “There are so many things that we saw,” Reid said. “I would like to see where it goes.” Parodi said that to date, World Vision has helped more than 65,000 people in Nepal. Parodi said the monsoon season in Nepal has recently started. “It is more urgent than ever to begin the rebuilding process so families can have a more permanent place to stay,” Parodi said. “World Vision has been working in Nepal for more than a decade and will be walking alongside the people of Nepal, transitioning from relief to long-term efforts in the coming months.”

Man slits throat in business parking lot, dies at hospital CRIME
Police Blotter The following is a sample from the Federal Way police log: Son hears voices: At 3:25 a.m. on July 5 in the 29800 block of 21st Ave. S., a man was involuntarily committed. His mother called police to report her son was hearing voices telling him to kill every man and woman in the world. She said he also believes he is the chosen one. The mother believes he has mental health issues. Man shoved out of car: At 1:12 a.m. on July 5 in the 2000 block of S. 327th Lane, a 24-yearold man flagged down a passerby to call 911 after his girlfriend shoved him out of a car. When police arrived, he told them he and his 28-year-old girlfriend were arguing about her cheating on him while they were driving in the car. She then pulled into an Auto Zone parking lot, opened his door and pushed him out. She fled the scene and the man sustained a minor injury to his ribs. He was escorted to his apartment to get his cell phone but the woman wasn’t at the residence. He did not consent to a written statement or photographs of his injuries. Wife assaults husband: At 1:25 a.m. on July 5 in an unknown block of S. 302nd St., a woman

was arrested for domestic violence against her husband in the presence of her two 16-year-old daughters. One of the girls was the 911 caller. However, her husband was also arrested on a $30,000 Pierce County Sheriff’s Office DUI warrant. Woman hits man in head with water bowl: At 2:08 a.m. on July 5 in the 31700 block of Eighth Ave. S., a 55-year-old woman was arrested for throwing a dog dish filled with water at her 46-year-old boyfriend. The two were in an argument because she believed he had taken her cell phone, which he denied. Prior to the assault, the police were called to the residence for a verbal dispute. They advised the two to separate from each other, which they did for about an hour but then the boyfriend came back to sleep in the backyard. He told police she came to the backyard complaining about her missing phone again and when he told her he didn’t have it, she struck him in the back of the head with the dog’s water bowl. She then threw glass bottles into the neighbor’s yard and another water bottle at him. While he was on the phone with 911, she hit the sliding glass door yelling, “Stop hitting me. Get off of me!” But the man was nowhere near her when she said that. After police got there, they noted inconsistencies with the woman’s story and she was arrested on fourth degree assault. Police believe alcohol was involved. Methamphetamine found on man: At 4:03 a.m. on July 5 in the 100 block of Campus Drive, a 19-year-old man was arrested for possessing 11.75 grams of methamphetamine. Police were called to the Reserve Apartments to look into a potential vehicle prowl in the parking lot. Witnesses saw two males looking into cars and set off a car alarm. They left in a grey Honda Civic. When police arrived, they found a grey Honda Accord and contacted the men inside. The driver told police he was working on the wiring of his car when he came to meet his friend to smoke some marijuana. Although he denied looking into cars, he
had a warrant for driving with a suspended license and his friend had a Department of Corrections escape warrant. That’s when police arrested and searched the driver’s friend, finding the methamphetamine in a zip-lock bag. Post-Miranda, the man told police he had a stomachache because he was coming off his high and was addicted to methamphetamine. Woman threatens to kill child: At 12:49 a.m. on July 5 in the 3000 block of S. 288th St., police responded to reports of a woman wanting to kill herself and her 11-year-old child. She got into an argument with her boyfriend’s mother and then left in a vehicle, sending suicidal text messages. She was found, arrested and taken to the hospital. Boy shot in eye: At 7:44 p.m. on July 5 in the 29400 block of Military Road S., an 8-year-old boy was accidentally shot in the eye with a BB pellet gun by his 8-year-old friend. He was immediately taken to the St. Francis Hospital emergency room but doctors said he would need to be transported to Harborview Medical Center for further treatment. The boy suffered a “globe rupture” and would potentially lose his eye, doctors said. Shoplifter busted for drugs: At 5:18 a.m. on July 5 in the 34500 block of 16th Ave. S., a man was arrested for shoplifting at Walmart. During a police search, officers found methamphetamine along with several bank cards that didn’t belong to the suspect. He was sent to St. Francis Hospital for treatment of medical issues before being transported to jail. Burglar scared off by gun: At 7:47 a.m. on July 4 in the 1500 block of SW 320th Court, a 57-year-old man said he was sleeping in his house when he was awakened by knocking at his door. As he reached to open the door, an unknown Hispanic man believed to be in his 20s opened the unlocked door. The resident grabbed a hammer-like tool and struck the man on the left side of his head. The suspect stumbled and then grabbed the victim and took him to the ground. As they wrestled, the victim called his wife, who
...obituaries Gary Frey
, a resident of Federal Way for the past nine years, lost his battle with liver cancer at the age of 75, in the early morning hours of June 10 in the presence of his life partner, Verna Murray. Survivors include his daughter and son-in-law, Jeff & Kim Thomas of Snohomish; his son and daughter-in-law, Greg & Allison Frey, of Federal Way; his sister Carol and husband Larry Potter, of Federal Way, and sister Peggy Drake, of Milton; 8 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and a host of truly great friends whom he cherished as part of his “family” and appreciated the relationship he enjoyed with each of them. Those who knew Gary can attest to the love of his country (and his many patriotic shirts!) as well as his passion for cooking and barbecuing for the enjoyment of others as evidenced by the many food functions he was instrumental in being involved in. At his request there will be no services. He donated his body to the University of Washington for medical research as his last unselfish act. A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, July 11 from 2-5 pm at the Auburn Eagles - 702 M Street SE, Auburn, WA 98002. Memorials, if desired, to Auburn Eagles, earmarked for Wounded Warriors.
then ran downstairs with a gun. As she got to the living room, the suspect got up and fled the scene. The victim shut the door and called 911. The suspect is described as weighing between 160-170 pounds, 5-foot, 7-inches tall with brown hair. He was also wearing a blue or green tank top with black shorts. ‘Plenty of Fish’ date threatens man with gun: At 10:31 a.m. on July 4 in the 35400 block of 25th Ave. SW, a man called 911 to report a female was threatening him with a gun. Officers responded and the female exited the residence right after the man. The man said he was lonely and met the woman on “Plenty of Fish,” a website. She picked him up from his apartment and drove him to her apartment in Federal Way. The man denied they were in a sexual or romantic relationship. But the next morning, the woman accused him of stealing $400, which he denied. She then allegedly got a handgun from her purse and pointed it at the man, demanding her money be returned. She also blocked the door but eventually let him go outside. However, the man refused to be a victim and wouldn’t cooperate with the investigation when prompted further. Homeless woman refuses to leave: At 11:13 a.m. on July 4 in the 31200 block of 47th Ave. SW, a passerby called police to request a welfare check on a woman who was sleeping in a sleeping bag off of 47th Avenue Southwest and Dash Point Road. Police located a homeless woman sleeping on the driveway of a city of Federal Way retention pond. She said she was fine but refused to provide identification and refused to leave. Because it was not for public use, she was trespassed. Woman points gun at woman: At 5:29 p.m. on July 4 in the 1100 block of SW 320th St., a 57-year-old woman pulled up next to a police officer in his patrol vehicle stating she needed to speak to him right away. She said she was cut off by another vehicle and she flipped them off. But then the vehicle tried to “run her off” the road twice. It then followed her westbound on Southwest 320th Street. Thinking the driver had stopped following her, she was stopped at a light when she looked over
and saw the driver of the car that had been following her. A woman then pointed a “black shiny handgun” at her without saying anything. The driver went into Retreat at Maple Hills Apartments and was driving a vehicle described as a cream color, older model Impala or Caprice. Officers checked the apartment complex where they found a Chevy Caprice matching the description. Neighbors in the apartment complex said they saw a female park the car about 15 minutes before police arrived. However, the woman couldn’t identify the suspect and police deemed the case for informational purposes only. Fireworks call gets man thrown in jail: At 8:57 p.m. on July 4 in the 4900 block of SW 319th Lane, officers were issuing a man a citation for illegal fireworks when they ran the man’s name and saw a $1,600 warrant for driving while license suspended in the third degree. They transported him to Kent jail. Diamond necklaces stolen from business: At 5:39 p.m. on July 3 in the 1800 block of S. Commons, Diamond Expressions was robbed of three diamond necklaces. The store manager told police the necklaces cost $16,940 total. According to video surveillance, on June 29, an African-American man is seen taking the jewelry while an Asian woman stands by. The video is in evidence but police have deemed the case inactive because they were unable to identify the man or woman. Shots fired at man’s apartment: At 12:02 a.m. on July 3 in the 30900 block of 16th Place SW, a 48-year-old man was sitting on his couch watching TV when several shots were fired at his apartment sliding glass door. No injuries were reported. The man believes the suspects who shot his door are seven juvenile males who he had a confrontation with days prior. However, he did not see them near his residence when the shots were fired. Suspects point gun, demand beer, cigarettes, wallets: At 5:14 a.m. on July 3 in the 28700 block of Military Road S., two victims were walking home with some beer and cigarettes when two suspects approached them. One of the suspects pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and demanded the victims’s wallets, beer and cigarettes. Both suspects
fled with the items and got away. No one suffered injuries. Girl ‘popped’ with belt: At 10:19 a.m. on July 3 in the 36100 block of 23rd Place S., a reporting party called Child Protective Services to report a significant bruise on the leg of one of his or her students at Bethel Christian Church daycare. The 5-year-old girl told a daycare worker she was “popped” by her mom with a belt while they were having a water day at the daycare. When asked about the hit, she said her dad’s girlfriend hit her because she did not finish her cereal that morning. The daycare workers took photos of the girl’s bruise and called Child Protective Services. The bruise is 6 inches long and purple and pink. Police recommended the case be turned over to the King County Sheriff’s Office. Man slits throat in parking lot, dies: At 10:41 a.m. on July 3 in the 900 block of S. 336th St., witnesses called police to report a 44-year-old man cut his throat in the parking lot of a naturopathy clinic. He sustained a severe, selfinflicted laceration to his throat. Medics responded and treated the victim at the scene but he was transported to Harborview Medical Center for his life-threatening injury. However, a King County Medical Examiner pronounced the man dead that afternoon. The man’s father told police he had been suffering from depression recently but had not made any indication that he wanted to kill himself. Witnesses report injured woman: At 8:05 p.m. on July 3 in the 800 block of SW Dash Point Road, two witnesses reported seeing an Asian woman with blood running down her legs. They described her as in her 30s with dark hair, wearing a white tank top and white shorts. They said she appeared in shock and was walking strangely. When asked if she wanted medical attention, she denied help. They also reported an Asian male in his 30s to 40s, who put the woman in a vehicle. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt. Police contacted the King County Sheriff’s Office to check on the registered vehicle owner but he has not been located. The investigation is closed pending further information.

Q&A with Mr. FW: Full from a night of manna from Heaven and heat and that’s the reason he dropped out of the District 30 race. Ferrell took exception to this and stood up and said this was absolutely not true. This devolved into the moderator telling everyone to calm down, which no one did, and the war of words was on. And how sweet they were. A few minutes later, during the open microphone session, Ferrell took his turn and demanded that Greene tell him who said this. Greene refused and then during closing statements stated that he would email Mirror editor Carrie Rodriguez the confirmation emails stating that he wasn’t lying. He had proof. Ferrell was livid, and the crowd flagged the publisher down asking for popcorn. Mr. Federal Way loves public discourse, especially when Mr. Federal Way doesn’t have to generate it. Ah, for the love of politics. You just can’t make this stuff up. Federal Way sure has some committed individuals and perhaps some that should be committed. Mr. Federal Way is unsure which is worse, politicians and candidates arguing in a public forum with each other or the fact that this requires Mr. Federal Way to start quoting

give them another reason. The publisher boss is suspect of this writer anyhow so there’s no need to draw more unnecessary attention to this columnist. Displacing a family of 14 would likely do that. Q: Mr. Federal Way, what did you think of the city’s 25th anniversary celebration? A: It seemed a little cheesy to Mr. Federal Way. Wisconsin-level cheesy. Mr. Federal Way doesn’t subscribe to a lot of pomp and circumstance as if that surprises you. The city should reduce Mr. Federal Way’s taxes and hand him a crisp $100 bill rather than throw a party for nothing else than turning 25. Nobody threw Mr. Federal Way a party when he turned 25 many moons ago. Besides, it was on Father’s Day weekend, with a little golf tournament going on and half of it was in one park and the kiddie rides were in another “park.” It was too complicated for the missus and Mr. Federal Way to figure out where to be with each kid. Did I mention it was Father’s Day? What was there for me to do? Go on carnival rides, put together with multi-tattooed, sideways-hat-wearing, high-school-diplomaoptional operators? Uh, no thanks. Mr. Federal Way went home and watched boring golf, while slicing off his fingernails with a
dull butter knife. Q: Mr. Federal Way, what’s up with that new columnist, Judith Magruder, you have talking about barfing, Kim Kardashian’s butt and all other kinds of junior high locker room talk? Where did the newspaper editor dig her up? A: Boy, Mr. Federal Way doesn’t know. She’s some kind of feisty, huh? Perhaps she used to be a sailor with the kind of things that come out of her mouth. Actually, the current editor was a former sailor. Maybe there’s a kindred connection there born out of wisdom and the liberal use of colorful four-letter words. Can you imagine going over to a grandma’s house like hers? Mr. Federal Way can and Mr. Federal Way wants her to be his grandma. None of that gosh darn it, dagnabbit kind of talk. Go to grandmas for Thanksgiving dinner and tell it like it is. Now that’s a party. Let’s just hope she wasn’t brought in to replace this columnist. Mr. Federal Way had better check into that. Q: Mr. Federal Way, does your house have air conditioning and can I come over? A: None of your business and $#%& no.

Bible verses. Both of these are not good. Q: Mr. Federal Way, what do you think of this recent heat wave and did it affect your plans for fireworks? It did mine with a bunch of punk kids lighting these off at all times of the night. A: Well, perhaps Mr. Federal Way has found a reader that is even more jaded than yours truly. Never thought this would be possible, but then again, I didn’t think it was possible to get an IUD in school before 13 years old either or to build a $200,000 park and then tear it down the next summer. Mr. Federal Way is apparently being left behind in this ever-changing world. Anyway, this heat wave has been brutal. It’s still 90 degrees at 10 p.m. and Mr. Federal Way is hot anyhow. Just ask Mrs. Federal Way. Why else would she stay with me? Generally, Mr. Federal Way is rain adverse, but he is doing a rain dance if nothing else than to temper the heat and cool off this concrete jungle we call home. Mr. Federal Way can bust a move once in a while. Yes, Mr. Federal Way did light off a mortar or 20, but did so where no grass or houses would be in the line of fire. Even Mr. Federal Way has morals. Not extremely lofty ones, but too many people want me to disappear anyhow. Mr. Federal Way can’t

hen intimate partner violence occurs, its impacts are felt throughout the family. Between three and four million children ages 3-17 are exposed to domestic violence every year in the United States. Studies demonstrate the effects of this exposure resulting in difficulties with a child’s emotional and behavioral functioning as well as in their cognitive capacities and attitudes. It also undermines a non-abusive parent’s relationship with their child, causing undue stress and weakened authority through the eyes of the child. Exposure to domestic violence occurs in many ways: witnessing violence acts and their aftermath, hearing arguments and fighting, or even sensing the tension and fear felt by the nonviolent parent. Through this process, children internalize unhealthy and often violent tendencies for conflict resolution and relationship-building. Boys who witnessed violence during their youth are more likely to abuse their female partners as teens and adults than are those who were raised in nonviolent homes. Better access to resources can provide families the information needed to reduce impacts of violence. Children and their parents need safe options and practical tips. Local domestic violence agencies, such as the Domestic Abuse Women’s Network (DAWN), can offer this support throughout Washington State. It’s never too early to start a conversation about healthy relationships. Reaching out to a domestic violence advocate can provide you with information such as: helpful tips, relationship red flags, and empowerment-based listening skills. DAWN’s services are free, confidential, and available to anyone looking to learn about intimate partner violence. A DAWN Children’s Domestic Violence Response Team advocate is also available to provide mental health and advocacy services to children who have experienced violence at home. To find support and to learn more about DAWN’s services, please visit dawnonline.org or call us at 425-656-4305 or toll free at 877-465-7234. We also invite you to join us on October 3rd, 2015 for DAWN’s annual Evening of Promise auction event. You can participate by volunteering, making an in-kind donation, or through sponsorship.

: Mr. Federal Way, I hope it’s not too late for this week’s paper, but were you at the Mirror debates this week? What happened with the mayor and the City Council candidate Mark Greene arguing? Why all of the yelling? A: I was there. Quite the show, huh? And this was all free, courtesy of your local newspaper. Anyhow, back when Mr. Federal Way was just a youngster, before even Pac-Man was digitized, we had to actually get out and do something for entertainment. Mr. Federal Way joined this program called Awanas. Basically, not much of this program is relevant to me now, but we had to come to Awanas every week with a Bible verse memorized. I can’t even remember now what John 3:16 is that they annoyingly hold up at all of the football games, but I looked up John 6:31 and it states in part, “He gave them bread out of Heaven to eat.” This is what happened Wednesday night at the debates. From a political perspective, this “food” couldn’t have tasted any better. Greene spouted off that he was told to run for City Council by Mayor Jim Ferrell’s campaign manager

SOUTH KING FIRE: FULLER, GALLAND
In the hotly contested race for South King Fire and Rescue’s commissioner Position 2, the Mirror endorses Bill Fuller and Jerry Galland. Fuller, a political newcomer, worked for Weyerhaueser for 35 years and served as a volunteer firefighter for nine years. A scientist by trade, he would bring a data-driven approach and thoughtful benchmarking system to the board. Given the investigations and other issues the fire district has recently faced, the board would benefit from a candidate with a fresh perspective who has managed people and possesses conflict resolution skills.
[ ROEGNER from page 6]
yes and it passed. However, the debate seemed to give substance to those who felt the council had been disingenuous in 2013 on how the money would be used. It was also noted that even if the city’s share of block grant funds is lowered, the $192,000 20-year price tag to pay off the loan from block grant funds would remain the same. Loans are troubling, but other parts of the financing are also still fluid. Naming rights, and tax credits, along with annual local fundraising needs to be resolved. And there is a belief that the city staff is already considering additional financial options. That is likely true, but also shouldn’t be a surprise. Others have raised another interesting question. Is our grasp on the New Market Tax Credits program so flimsy that the city needed to change the name of the building to the Performing Arts and Events Center to increase our competitiveness? The May 2014 report of the mayor’s Blue Ribbon
www.federalwaymirror.com Galland has proven he will stand up for what he believes in and for residents as a long-time outspoken activist for the fire district. Galland promises to improve the fire district’s transparency by making committee meetings and reports accessible to the public. Galland represents the voice of the people and would provide the critical oversight the current board needs. Roger Flygare is engaged with the Federal Way community and has a vast amount of experience working on issues with the state Legislature. However, voters will benefit from a commissioner who is not a career politician and who does not have ties to the current board.
LAKEHAVEN: PETERSON, SANCHEZ
Richard Peterson has a solid connection to the community, having lived, worked and paid utilities in Federal Way since the 1980s. As the director of cemeteries for the Catholic ArchdiPanel mentioned the risk in allocation of the funds from the tax credit program, although some council members still thought the funds would be approved last fall. They weren’t. In January at the mayor-council retreat, city staff reported that they would be traveling to San Diego and Washington D.C. to meet with representatives and consultants involved in the tax credit program. The mayor quoted the clearing house representative as saying he could “almost guarantee it,” meaning the receipt of the tax credit funding. However, that consultant didn’t come through, and now the city is working with someone else. City staff also stated they expected an announcement in May or by June 1. It is now July and the city is saying it may be another 30-45 days. The report also contemplated a three-year loan from the city, and the potential of higher ticket prices that the finance director mentioned last year. The panel put a lot of emphasis on hiring an executive director with the right experience. The new director is now in town and seems capable. But she came from a different model

ocese of Seattle, who manages four major cemeteries in King County, Peterson would bring the managerial and organizational skills the utility district needs to maintain its solid status quo. With his service and business background, Peterson has a proven track record of being accountable to those he serves. Peter Sanchez has been employed with the Southwest Suburban Sewer District since 1982 and would bring his vast knowledge of utility issues to the Lakehaven board. Randy Smith also has a strong connection to Federal Way, having lived in the city since 1966 and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School. He has served as a Parks Commission member and has exhibited his passion for the community, however, Smith seems better qualified for a City Council position and would benefit seeking candidacy on the council instead. The Mirror recommends voting for Peterson and Sanchez for Lakehaven Utility District, Position 3. than what the public expects here. Federal Way residents expect the Performing Arts and Conference Center — oops there I go again — I mean the Performing Arts and Events Center, to show a profit in a very short period of time. There is also concern about the actual construction costs. The Blue Ribbon Panel stated, “The committee did not analyze the construction and development cost estimates, but Mortenson Construction is reputable and their budget is judged to be reasonable by Lorax partners. The committee finds that the financial projections made by the city and the various fundraising consultants are reasonable.” Neither of those statements should be characterized as an in depth review or stamp of approval by the panel. But that is how they have been portrayed in the community. Although the report provided much needed political cover for the elected city officials to continue on the path of building the conference center, oops the events center. I’ll get it right by the end of the column. The report goes on to say that it was city staff that “quantified the estimated one-time construction and ongoing economic and fiscal impacts” while substituting for a consulting firm unable to perform the task. That may not be the independence the public was looking for. I can already hear Performing Arts and Events Center, see got it right, supporters warming up their computers and letters to the editor to go on the attack toward anyone who dares to raise questions. But residents have questions about the biggest project in city history, about their political leaders’ questionable lack of candor on the tax credit program, and it is hard to ignore all the loose ends and moving parts when the city wants to break ground this fall! But despite the number of questions that remain, the Performing Arts and Conference Center, Performing Arts and Events Center, or the Piquette-Priest-Ferrell Building will get built, whether the finances come together or not. We are way past the fail safe point and there is too much ego and money, and too many political futures involved for it not to go ahead. At this point, we all have to hope that this cityorganized house of financial cards will actually come together. But what happens if it doesn’t, or if the financing plan is significantly different than what has been discussed so far? How will that get explained to the public?

ing the body to the head,” Taylor said. “If you have treatment staff talking to one another, you get better clinical care.” Also in the second building will be Valley Cities’ consolidated administrative offices. “Our administrative folks are scattered at multiple sites,” Taylor said. “Since the Affordable Care Act began in January of 2014, we have seen 200 to 250 new patients each month. We have locations throughout the Valley and all of those places are bursting at the seams.” Taylor said a third building will serve as a dependency recovery center for those addicted to hard drugs, prescription medications, or alcohol. “This is in response to a crisis that exists in our county,” Taylor said. “It doesn’t get very much at-
tention. One person a day in King County is dying from addiction, heroin in particular. We have a critical shortage of beds for people to detox from the legal and illegal drugs that they are addicted to. When you have someone who is clean or sober, you have to find treatment providers.” To meet that need, 44 detox beds will be in the recovery center to help people get clean and sober and get engaged in treatment, whether with Valley Cities or some other provider. A fourth building will be the Recovery Café, modeled after the Recovery Café in downtown Seattle. Taylor said people who have been clean and sober for a minimum of 24 hours come to the Recovery Café six days a week. “It’s a wonderful place for people to come inside, have a cup of coffee, have a meal, participate in groups, ease
their way into the treatment process,” Taylor explained. The fifth and final building will house the medical dispensary, helping people addicted to drugs who require medication-assisted treatment. Taylor said patients who come to Woodmont will literally be able to walk from building to building. “In some cases your medical record can be shared between buildings,” Taylor said. “There will be a lot more coordination between service providers.” According to The National Report Card on the State of Emergency Medicine of 2009, Washington state is now last among the 50 states in psychiatric beds per capita. Since 2007, the state has reduced the available beds by 15 percent. This equates to 8.2 beds per 100,000 people. “The county is probably between 50-75 beds short
per day on what it needs,” Taylor said. “(We estimate) we will reduce the problem by a third. We’re making an in-road, but not solving it.” The Woodmont Recovery Center, when completed, will cost in the neighborhood of $40 million. Taylor said project funding has come from a combination of public funds, Valley Cities’ funds, and commercial financing. This includes a $1 million grant from the King County Mental Health and Substance Abuse Division.
