Assault charge filed in shooting at The Landing Suspect brought gun to theater because he feared ‘mass shootings’ BY DEAN A. RADFORD

Film festival dances into Renton Dancers from Port Orchard’s “From Within Academy” performed an Indian classical dance before the screenings of the annual Children’s Film Festival Seattle. The festival, catering to South King County’s burgeoning Indian population, screened a short film and two Indian feature films at Carco Theater this past weekend. Along with the dance performances, there were treats from Jot Indian Sweets & Restaurant on sale. LEAH ABRAHAM, Renton Reporter

Dane E. Gallion chambered a round in his 9 mm Smith and Wesson handgun at the Regal Cinemas at The Landing the night of Jan. 21 because he feared mass shootings in public places, according to court documents The 29-year-old Newcastle man told an officer the gun discharged when a man sitting next to him grabbed his crotch, according to court documents, striking another theater-goer, a 40-yearold woman, in front of him in the shoulder. The woman, Michelle Mallari, was transported to Harborview Medical Center with a broken clavicle. She was released earlier this week. The bullet is still in her shoulder because doctors feared removing it would cause more damage, according to court documents. King County prosecutors on Tuesday charged Gallion with third-degree assault. He was released Jan. 23 on $25,000 bail, which the judge increased to $100,000 Tuesday. His arraignment in King County Superior Court is 9 a.m. Feb. 4 at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. His criminal history includes a 2011 conviction for driving under the influence.

Renton boy wins chance to report on Super Bowl from the sidelines BY LEAH ABRAHAM

Nine-year-old Riley Ottele thought it was a little strange when his parents walked into his lunchroom at St. Anthony’s Elementary. When his father handed him a phone, saying that there was a call for him, Ottele was very confused. He stepped out of the lunchroom and answered the call. “Hi, my name is Trent Dilfer,” said the voice over the phone.

Ottele’s mouth dropped in disbelief. He knew that Dilfer was a former quarterback for teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks and currently is an NFL analyst for ESPN. Ottele also knew that if Dilfer was calling him, he must have just won himself a ticket to the Super Bowl. Ottele had entered the Panini Super Bowl Kid Reporter Contest, a contest run by Panini America, a sports and entertainment collectables company. The winner of the contest wins two tickets to see the [ more SUPER BOWL page 3]

COMMUNITY [ SUPER BOWL from page 1] Super Bowl and a chance to interview the players. Ten lucky winners were randomly selected from a Panini sweepstakes and were asked to record a short video showcasing their interviewing skills, sharing the types of questions they would ask the athlete. “I was nervous when I made the top 10 because I was kind of scared,” said Ottele. Ottele says that he was completely shocked when Dilfer, special ambassador and coach for Panini’s Kid Reporter contest, called him. “He [Dilfer] said, ‘Congratulations, you won the Kid Reporter contest,’ and I was like, ‘Oh! Thanks! Oh my gosh I’m really excited!” said Ottele. In the video, Ottele shares that his favorite team is the Denver Broncos and that one of the questions he hopes to ask the athletes is what kind of breakfast they eat before a game. “It tells you a lot about their personality,” said Ottele. “It’s also nice to know what breakfast is good to eat, so whatever they say, I’ll probably eat that a lot.” “With more than 120,000 entries in this year’s Panini Super Bowl Kid Reporter contest, Riley overcame amazing odds to just become a top 10 finalist,” said Jason Howarth, vice president of marketing for Panini America. “His video submission that a number of Panini executives and ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer voted on

was more than impressive. Riley clearly demonstrated creativity in his proposed questions to ask NFL players and has ability to relate them to Panini NFL trading cards. That set him apart from the rest of the finalists. We can’t wait to work with him in San Francisco.” The contest has been gaining Ottele some popularity at school. “Everyone at school was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so awesome’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I guess.’” said Ottele. “They’re getting kind of jealous but they’re just having fun with me.” Ottele said that even though he is nervous to interview the

athletes, he is very excited to watch the game and interview Peyton Manning, his second favorite player. “My absolute favorite player is John Elway, one of the former quarterbacks for the Broncos” Ottele said. “He was the Super Bowl MVP and one of the best quarterbacks of all times, and I really like him.” Apart from watching previous contest winners’ interview videos, Ottele said he’s preparing by practicing his reporting skills with his parents. Ottele is also glad that he will be interviewing the players alongside Dilfer. “He is the

kid-helper,” Ottele said. “He helps you do all the sweeping through the crowd and stuff.” Ottele has an impressive collection of NFL trading cards, three drawers full of them to be exact. A collector since two years ago, Ottele has arranged his favorite cards neatly on a cork board, and has organized the rest systematically in his drawers. His favorite card include a signed Tarrell Davis and Garrett Grayson collectibles. Ottele is also a Pokemon card collector. “I’m actually a twotime city champion in Pokemon,” Otelle said with a shy, yet proud smile. “I’ve already qualified for the world championships.” Ottele plans to attend the championships in San Francisco later this year. Even with a potential Pokemon championship title under his belt this year, Ottele’s love for sports is second to none. At recess, Ottele says he finds himself playing baseball or kickball, and that he hopes to continue playing sports throughout middle school and high school, and perhaps beyond. “I want to be a football player,” said Ottele. “But I think the problem is that they’re always getting hurt. Probably a (football) placekicker or an engineer like my mom. But my goal is definitely toward sports.” Reach reporter Leah Abraham at 253-678-3148.

A Valentine’s Day brunch from Peyrassol you can make at home

Hot From the Oven!

are what I would describe as the “whole enchilada.” There’s a confidence and an attention to detail that I appreciate, backed up by years of hard work (Scott has been a sommelier for over 26 years and Sachia has been cooking since she was two and more recently as Executive Chef at Wild Ginger and Triple Door). On a recent Monday I was able to cook and chat with Chef Sachia. When she suggested we make eggs Benedict, a popular item on their Sunday Brunch menu, I was a little disappointed. I had anticipated learning the secret of a much talked about favorite beef bour-

guignon, slow simmered in red wine and homemade stock and served with a polenta cake. Or perhaps learning the secret ingredients to some of their other dishes perfected from their travels around Western Europe, like hand-cut pasta dishes such as a “spaghetting alla chitarra al zafferano,” featuring pasta tossed in a saffron cream sauce and Dungeness topped with garlic sautéed prawns. So when she suggested eggs Benedict, I didn’t mention that I kinda have a thing against brunch. Not as a concept, but in my experience it’s rarely done well. I’m just not a fan of tonging out ham or turkey swimming in a mystery liquid. Or weak coffee, frozen orange juice or stale pastry that you feel compelled to eat just to keep a pulse. But that’s the joy of learning how to cook with the pros; it changes your perspective and pushes you out of your comfort zone. I would soon realize that the eggs Benedict was the perfect choice in it’s simplicity and, when well executed, is divine just like all of the food coming out of the Peyrassol kitchen. We started with the hollandaise sauce. She cracked out egg yokes, setting aside the whites for other recipes or to donate to a local boys shelter. She whisked the yokes with lemon juice and sea salt and after a bit added melted butter. With a touch of elbow grease I was surprised how quickly the sauce came together. And it was a beautiful sauce,

somehow at once thick and thin with a velvety sheen. I watched her dress two small piles of rocket arugula with a little olive oil on the cutting board before placing the glimmering greens gently on the halved English Muffins. Next came poaching the eggs. Using the same pot of boiling water with a little bit of lemon juice and salt, she cracked in a couple of eggs. As we waited for the eggs to cook Sachia shared the origin of the name, Peyrassol. Sachia waited tables during the day and cooked at night at La Spiga which is where she met Scott, who, as the Sommelier at the Broadway QFC frequented La Spiga. Peyrassol is the name of the French Rose they shared from Provence and became the namesake in homage to their favorite wine and food experiences from their travels, something they hope to replicate, adding their own flare. I could see her perfectionism in her kitchen, the cooking timers were placed “just so,” the knives were a reach away, sparkling clean and very sharp. But it was her arsenal of squeeze bottles, meticulously labeled that really intrigued me, Like magical potions filled with Sachia’s house-made sauces. I commented on the lithe cut of her Beechwood smoked ham and she said, “And that’s thick for me.” I nodded as I watched her pour the brilliant, lemon-colored sauce over the poached eggs nested in ham like a mother gently draping a warm blanket over a baby. Slicing through the light, fluffy, poached egg was satisfying as the yoke burst over, mixing with the lemony, rich sauce, the sweet smoked ham, acid and spice from the arugula We toasted my brunch conversion over a Blood Orange champagne. And this my friends is how they do everything at Peyrassol: Precise, measured, thoughtful. In Sachia and Scott’s world of Peyrassol they want every detail to be as wonderful for the guest as possible, mimicking the adventures of their European travels. There is nothing more satisfying than eating a really delicious, thoughtful meal with excellent service from people who are passionate about what they are doing. Peyrasoll in Renton is a no-brainer, a must try for Valentine’s Day or any day. For the full Peyrassol eggs Benedict recipe, visit

Sachia Tinsley and Scott Cory are the wife and husband co-owners of Peyrassol, Café at Southport. Just finding Peyrassol, wedged beneath the Bristol apartments along an inlet road, seems like a secret, unexpected port near the shores of Lake Washington. Every Rentonite with a little curiosity should absolutely make their way “off the beaten path” because the truth is Peyrassol, which opened in 2010, is at the epicenter of development in Renton, right next door to the new hotel on Lake Washington at Southport. Offering “Rustic Western European cuisine that is refined yet country” in a quaint, down-to-earth space, the food is made with high quality ingredients and guided by Executive Chef Sachia’s palate and Sommelier Scott’s internal mood ring. I asked Scott to explain a sommelier. “Think of a sommelier as a table side wine and beer educator and also a food guide all wrapped in one. Peyrassol offers some Washington wines but mostly Italian and French to complement a menu that, brings the taste of the lifestyle of dining in Europe to our restaurant,” Scott said. According to Scott, when he goes to a table it’s his job to understand the table’s mood. To suggest a wine pairing based on their menu, and it is absolutely critical for him to “read the table,” or understanding what the guest is looking for, what they are used to drinking and if they want to try something new.

A dispute over who brakechecked whom | Police blotter



The following information was compiled from Renton Police Department case reports. A young Renton couple who had just spent a long night with their sick child at Valley Medical Center Jan. 9 was driving home slowly in wet and potentially icy conditions. Another car followed closely behind them in the 2300 block of Benson Road South and when possible pulled around the couple. Then the driver slammed the brakes, forcing the couple’s car to the curb where a tire blew. The young father got out, as did the female driver of the other car. They argued and she hit the father in the lip while he kept his arms at his sides. They both drove off, but the young couple was able to provide a license plate number. The driver, a 25-year-old Renton woman, told an officer the couple’s car had brake-checked her. She was afraid the other driver was going to punch her, so she punched him. She faced a citation of fourdegree assault.

Charges filed in pedestrian death Shaun Alan Meadows, 35, has been charged with vehicular homicide in the death of a Las Vegas man who was killed on Jan. 17 while crossing Hauser Way. Meadows was arrested at the scene and was booking into the King County jail. He posted 4100,000 bail on Jan. 20. The victim, Ley-Eric Sanford, 42, died of the injuries suffered in the crash, which was ruled an accident. According to police reports, Meadows was traveling at least 40 mph when he struck Sanford, knocking him more than 75 feet. His arraignment is Feb. 4 at the Regional Justice Center in Kent. -Dean A.

FAKE CHECK: The man who claimed he was from Kirkland paid for a fireplace insert with a check for $2,673 in mid-December and asked for delivery to the company’s store in Renton. About a month later, the company heard from its bank. The check was a fake. Attempts to contact the buyer failed. The number on the check belongs to a home-services company which had never heard of the buyer. An employee provided police with a description of man, including his huge hands. NO SLEEPING: The owner of a shop on Main Avenue South didn’t want the man sleeping in a sleeping bag behind his business, so he called police. In running the man’s name, an officer discovered a felony warrant for third-degree assault from the King County Sheriff ’s Office. He was transported to SCORE regional jail, but then taken to Valley Medical Center for medical reasons. PURSE SNATCH: A man grabbed a 26-year-old Renton woman’s purse from a stroller

thick to force indoors. Give the cut branches water and warmth – then stand back for an explosion of blooms A deep vase or tall pitcher makes a good container for tall whips but you can also force shorter offshoots in a tall glass of water. Recut the stem at an angle and pound woody stems with a hammer to break up the bark and allow the cut branches to absorb more liquid. Use warm water and change the water every few days to keep it clean. Bright light but not direct sunlight will coax the buds to open in a few days and can last as long as two weeks if you keep the blooming display cool at night. Don’t forget you can fool your bulbs Snowdrops, crocus and dwarf daffodils can be forced into bloom this time of year simply by digging the bulb from the ground and placing It in a teacup half filled with pebbles, marbles or glass chips. Bring the uprooted bulb indoors but spray it with water often or cover it with glass for a few hours every day to increase humidity. The cup should be filled with just an inch of water below the bulb, never allowing the bulb itself to sit in dampness. The roots will seek out the water at the bottom of the cup, the bulb will be fooled into flowering indoors due to the warmer temps and you’ll be one up on Mother Nature. The good news about forcing bulbs you borrow from the garden is that they can be replanted outdoors after they flower and placed with their foliage still attached back into their original planting hole. Meet Marianne Binetti at the Tacoma Home and Garden show, Jan. 28 – 31. Marianne will speak every day of the show at 2 p.m. Thursday and Saturday on “Great Plant Partners” and Friday and Sunday on “Italian Inspiration for Low Water Gardens”. Some members of the audience will win tickets to the NWFG show.


Now’s the time to force your garden into an early spring The last week of January means it is time to force the issue of an early spring. You can smell the fragrance and enjoy the color of an early spring this month at the Tacoma Home and Garden show that runs Jan. 28 – 31. You can also force your own spring blooms by using the techniques below. Sometimes it is nice to fool Mother Nature Forcing cut branches or planted bulbs in the winter months is an easy way to trick Mother Nature into a premature burst of color. It is also a great antidote to spring fever as it forces one to get outdoors and up close and personal with plants. Best plants for winter forcing Early spring blooming shrubs with woody stems such as forsythia, quince and flowering cherry and plum varieties are the easiest to force into bloom because their flower petals are already formed protected inside the hard shells of the branch buds. All they need is the key of warmth and sunlight to unlock the door to bright yellow, orange or soft pink blooms. Harvest branches for forcing and shape the plant at the same time Look for crossing, extra long or awkward branches on your forsythia, quince or witch hazel shrubs and harvest these for indoor forcing by cutting close to the mother branch or joint. Pruning always stimulates growth so the more branches you cut this year the more you will have next year. These cut branches are often called whips in the gardening world because they should be supple and flexible enough to whip about. If the branch is too thick to harvest easily with hand pruners, it is too

“It tells you a lot about their personality.” Riley Ottele, winner of the Panini Super Bowl Kid Reporter Contest, on his plans to ask Super Bowl players what they eat for breakfast

Less gun culture, not more control solves this When you are the editor of a newspaper and someone is shot in a movie theater in your city, you kind of feel compelled to say something. And in a way I do. Usually, and regular readers know this, as someone generally in favor of stricter gun-control regulations, this is where I’d say something about further measures I think could have helped prevent the situation this past Thursday at The Landing. But the truth is, I am not sure any new legislation could have done anything to prevent the incident in which an innocent bystander at a movie was shot in the back by a drunk person who brought a legally concealed pistol to the theater with them and then went off after he chambered a round. Sure, we could talk about whether concealcarry legislation is a good idea or something along those lines; but that, to me, is not the issue here. This past week’s incident is not a matter of needing more gun control, but simply less gun culture. Dane E. Gallion, the man who allegedly brought his 9 mm to a showing of “13 Hours” on Thursday, told police he brought his gun to the theater because he feared a “mass shooting.” The idea that a Newcastle resident would feel the need to carry a handgun into a movie theater because he was scared about “mass shootings” is just crazy to me. THAT is what we need to change in this country: the idea that we live in such a dangerous society that at any given moment you could be gunned down by a madman and should therefore always be packing, just in case. Because yes, while there are mass shootings that sometimes happen in movie theaters, the truth is if you are bringing a gun to The Landing, YOU are probably the danger. And that proved to be EXACTLY the case in this incident. That’s because where there are more guns, there is more gun violence. That is not only a statistical fact, it just makes sense. In a house where there are no guns, the odds of there being gun violence are greatly reduced. On top of that, if you have a gun in your home, it is more likely to accidentally shoot a family member than a bad guy. But we’ve created such a culture of fear in this country – especially in the past decade or so – that despite a decreasing violent crime rate (one that has been dropping for about 25 years now) many people are more scared than ever. I don’t understand it. But then again, I don’t have cable and am not assaulted 24 hours a day with news designed to make me think the world is ending, so maybe that’s it. Brian Beckley

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR School measures are key to world-class education I join with many local business leaders, small business owners, citizens, families, teachers and school staff as enthusiastic supporters of the two levies on the Feb. 9 ballot for Renton Schools. Teachers and school staff are working hard to provide a world-class education for our children, which means a brighter future for our communities and our region. I believe that the Renton School District is an outstanding, fiscally responsible organization, a regional leader in teaching and learning, and staffed with some incredible people who make a difference for everyone’s children. Our community’s support for local schools through these two levies provide important funding to contribute to so many vital programs and materials that directly benefit all children in our schools. This funding supports quality programs such as music, art, drama, athletics, the arts, robotics, and a variety of technology to accelerate a student’s learning. It also supports our buildings, classrooms, and school buses. These are all critical to educating the whole child. Honestly, I don’t know how we could accomplish the tremendous learning we provide without this much-needed funding. Each day our teachers, specialists, and paraeducators work with students to help them reach high standards. As a result, our students are closing the achievement gap, extending their learning, and are ready to make enormous contributions to our community, our region and our nation. Best of all, we can provide all of this without increase our personal tax rates. The levies simply continue the current rate we are paying. I voted YES and I hope you will join me in voting YES for both measures by Feb. 9. It could come down to YOUR vote! Your vote truly matters. Kandy Schendel, Parent, business owner, Renton PTSA Council

president and Hazen PTSA president

Levies required to support needs of our children Please join me and thousands of Renton citizens, parents and businesses in voting YES! for both measures for Renton Schools by Feb. 9! I am a parent, neighbor, and employee who knows how important both of these levies are to the continued success of every student in the district. There is NO change in our tax rates from the current levy, so why wouldn’t we vote YES! Tons of growth is predicted for our area over the next few years and we need these levies to support a new elementary school and many other needs for our children to continue to succeed. You should have already received your ballot in the mail; but if you didn’t, please call 206296-8683 and they can send you a replacement ballot. Thank you and remember to VOTE YES for both measures RENTON SCHOOLS by Feb. 9! Shannon Holbrook, Renton

Park-and-ride lot needs at least doubled capacity I would use transit happily IF there were open slots between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the transit parking garage. I hope serious thought is given to people like me who wish to go to and from downtown Seattle on a single bus during off-peak hours! I would hope that this would increase ridership! I suggest building at least double the capacity of the current park and ride. You may be surprised how many people want to use transit and find no place to park.

Charging documents explain what happened after Gallion had a 22-ounce beer and pizza at a pizzeria in The Landing. He had taken a medication for anxiety in the morning. After the pizza and beer, he went to the theater at about 8 p.m. A manager says he stumbled in the door and walked to theater 9, where “13 Hours” was showing. It’s a combatbased story of a private security force that defended the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Gallion sat in the middle of the theater, chambering a round in his 9 mm which was unholstered in his waistband. The gun doesn’t have a safety, according to charging

A bullet hole can be seen in a theater chair in this photo from the scene of the shooting. COURTESY RENTON POLICE DEPARTMENT

documents. He has a concealed pistol permit. Someone sitting next to him was bothering him but he couldn’t tell a detective exactly how when interviewed at the police station, according to court documents. Earlier he had told an officer the man had touched him in the crotch. Gallion continued to tell the detective that his gun accidentally went off in his pants, scaring him. He denied handling the gun before it went off. During the interview, he pulled down his sweatpants at the request of the detective, who didn’t see any injuries or powder burns on his legs. After the gun fired, Gallion left because he feared others would think he was the suspect in a mass shooting, according to court documents. The theater manager told officers that on the way out the suspect, still stumbling, dumped a handgun magazine in a trash can in the theater. Officers later found a 9 mm Smith and Wesson magazine in the trash, as well as a single spent shell casing and a bullet under a seat in the middle of the theater. At about 9:30 p.m. family members called the King County Sheriff ’s Office dispatch to report that the suspect had returned home, upset, and reported that they believed he was the shooter at the Regal Cinemas.

[ EDITOR from page 6] I am also not a member of the NRA and therefore am not inundated with their propaganda either, like the LIE that “only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun.” I’ve been over this before, but that’s just dumb. In fact, most shootings that are not ended by police are ended by people without guns talking down the crazy person who has one. Yes, having a gun can certainly make is easier to stop a Bad Guy With a Gun; but chances are, you will never be in that situation and if you are, you are probably only going to make it worse, like the guy at the Tacoma Mall did 10 years ago or so. The best intentions of that citizen actually led the shooter to fire off more shots (hitting and paralyzing the citizen with the gun) and then take hostages. The gunman was eventually talked down by his hostages, who did not have guns. Just this week there was a report out of Mississippi in which four people were shot after guns were pulled over a $25 repair charge. At a gun shop. If more guns were really the answer, I can’t help but think that would have gone differently.

Piazza Renton volunteers hosted tree lighting, Santa arrival This letter is sent in clarification of an article in the Jan. 1, 2016, edition regarding the 2015 Downtown Tree Lighting. The Downtown Renton Tree Lighting and Arrival of Santa has been hosted by Piazza Renton for more than 15 years. Piazza Renton volunteers take great pride in presenting this annual Downtown Renton holiday event to the people of our City. The Dec. 5 event was the result of the combined efforts two volunteer groups: Piazza Renton and the Downtown Partnership. In clarification of the statement in her column that the event was “hosted” Carolyn Ossorio, we want to relay that Carolyn served as a master of ceremonies for a portion of the program. She was not the host, in the traditional sense, for the evening. The true hosts of the event were the volunteers of Piazza Renton and the Downtown Partnership. Piazza Renton wants to thank the many volunteers who worked to make the evening festive, fun and a great success. Thank you also, Renton Reporter, for your continuing support of Piazza Renton, the Downtown Partnership and the many other volunteer organizations that work long and hard to make Renton a great place to live, work and play!

But again, today there is no legislation to call for. I have in the past, but am not doing so now as the suspect here followed the law. I respect his right to buy a gun. I respect him going through the channels necessary to be able to legally carry it. This man jumped through every hoop and passed every check required in purchasing his gun. And there is no indication that he should have been prevented from getting it. I support this man’s right to own a gun, just as I support my right to do so should I make that choice. (Though this event should probably disqualify him from doing so again legally in the future.) “Because yes, while What I question is the culture that makes him think it is necessary there are mass to bring it with him to the movies. shootings that I don’t carry a gun. Want to know sometimes happen why? I am not scared. There, I said in movie theaters, it. the truth is if you Here’s the truth: King County’s are bringing a gun firearm death rate is blow the state to The Landing, YOU average, which is below the national are probably the average, which is at a 25-plus year danger.” low. Of the firearm deaths in our county, 29 percent were homicides and 3 percent were accidental. The rest are suicides. So while I generally support efforts to curb the spread of firearms, especially assault rifles and other guns that make it easy for a madman to kill 20 kids in school in five minutes, there is nothing to call for here, with the possible exception of mandating that all guns have a working safety switch. As I have also said before, I am not anti-gun. I am antiDumb. I believe in your (and my) right to own a gun. I also believe that there can be good compelling reasons why a person might feel they need a conceal carry permit for said gun. But please just remember: if you are packing, you are most likely the dangerous one. So don’t give into fear. Leave your gun at home when you go to the movies.

Hazen hosts fundraising tourney

Hazen Wrestling and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Puget Sound Affiliate hosted the fifth annual Taking Down Pancreatic Cancer event Saturday. This year was the first year of expansion, which went from a four team double dual to an eight team dual tournament. The team does this in order to raise money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer, which has silently crept up as the third leading cause of cancer death in the US. This last year it surpassed breast cancer. The survival rate for pancreatic cancer is grim. Most people when diagnosed live less than a year. The team hosted several top rated teams. Bonney Lake placed first overall, followed by Decatur. Hazen finished fourth. The results from Hazen’s dual meet against Quincy are as follows:

Ivan Sandoval, above, is Quincy 43 vs Hazen 21 pinned during his match against 106 Damion Cassillas Ramires (Qui) won by 13-6 dec vs Devon Salcedo of Quincy.
