Developer gets the green light on north-end property Council OKs revisions in deal with Inland Construction to build on former outdoor theater site Its residential component — composed of workforce or affordable housing — will provide an opportunity to build off-site

structures, including the extension of I Street Northeast north to 277th. Its commercial component, the Marketplace, is to connect through the center of the development to 500 apartment units, tying everything into one cohesive master plan. On Monday after a rare, late-afternoon public hearing, the

Auburn City Council gave Inland Construction the go-ahead to make the whole shebang happen at the site of the former Valley 6 Drive-In Theaters just south of the the city’s northern boundary. That is, city leaders accepted adjustments that Inland’s principals had asked for to the strict development standards in the ambitious, original development

agreement (DA) the city had entered into with the Robertson Property Group for the Auburn Gateway Project in 2011, and to add supplemental items. Without those adjustments, Inland Group of Spokane told the City Council in April, it would have had no choice but to withdraw the purchase offer it had made to the RPG. After that meeting, city staff

Splendid landmark

Nexus and Accelerator Y break ground on New Arcadia House The New Arcadia House will house 15 young adults and provide emergency shelter for 12 more, offer storage space and common areas, a community kitchen, office and conference spaces and a drop-in center during the day. Last week, the YMCA of Greater Seattle’s Accelerator branch and Nexus Youth and Families broke ground on the facility in Auburn that will address youth and young adult homelessness. “We share a common mission,” Michael Jackson, interim executive director of Nexus Youth and Families said of Accelerator Y, the social services branch of the YMCA of Greater Seattle. “At our core, we are focused on caring for youth, and in this spirit we wanted to bring in a bigger team to support new efforts.” Accelerator Y is the largest provider of housing for young people in King County. Nearly 40 percent of the people Accelerator

serves live in South King County. Among its services are housing, education resources, employment opportunities, family support, behavioral health services, youth violence prevention, foster care and Host Homes – a spare room connection program. Nexus Youth and Families has been the leading provider of shelter, housing and behavioral health services to youth and families experiencing homelessness and other trauma in South King County for more than 40 years. It operates street outreach, shelters, around-the-clock care, case management and housing for kids and young adults ranging from 12 to 24 years old. Nexus Youth and Families will be responsible for the oversight and operations of the shelter, and Accelerator Y will be responsible for the oversight and operations of the housing and drop-in center.

historians, civic leaders and guests came to marvel at the well-maintained structure. Ceremonies honored the five diverse families who lived in the mansion, at 12303 Auburn Black Diamond Road, from the Victorian era through the 1980s. The Cascade Foothills Chorale played period music. The Washington State Square and Folk Dance Federation performed. Refreshments were served and tours of the mansion, gardens, vintage farm equipment and

1930s Japanese bathhouse followed the ceremonies. Neely Mansion, which is just outside city limits, was the home and farm of several families dating back to some of the first pioneers to come to the area. By the 1970s, the welllived-in home was in a state of massive disrepair, and its caretakers were unable to undertake the task of restoration. That’s when the Neely Mansion Association stepped in, merging with the Auburn Arts Council in 1985 to take ownership of the building and start the years-long process of

restoring the mansion to its former glory. The mansion, built in 1894, is recognized as a King County Landmark and is listed on the Washington State Register and National Register of Historic Places. According to the King County Landmarks and Heritage Commission, Neely Mansion remains a “prominent and impressive structure for a rural farming community” and is “one of the most ornate historic homes in unincorporated King County.” Learn more at

Auburn Police began extra emphasis patrols for fireworks on Monday, June 24. The patrols will run each night through July 5. Auburn Police Chief Bill Pierson said that on the big night, he expects to have between 12 and 15 officers on the streets, dedicated exclusively to responding to calls for service and fireworks complaints “We are going to have more officers out and about this year focusing on illegal fireworks,” Pierson said. “Basically, the rule is, if it goes up and blows up, it’s illegal in the city. We’re also looking for safe discharging of fireworks to make sure they’re not being used recklessly, meaning they could create a fire, damage property or injure people. And we are also making sure the hours are being adhered to. “We’re also working with the Muckleshoot Tribe again with regard to safety and traffic, and making sure that fireworks are discharged in the discharge area safely. The tribe is committed to that and wants to make sure it’s safe there,” Pierson said. At least one man,

however, appears not to have gotten the memo. On June 24, Valley Regional Fire Authority firefighters and King County Medics responded to the Muckleshoot fireworks area for a fireworks accident where they found a man who had been lighting explosives only to have one go off in both of his hands. Firefighters treated the man, and medics transported him to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. So, a reminder: it is illegal to discharge any firework within the city except on the Fourth of July. Fireworks that are legal may only be discharged in the city on July 4. Fireworks may be

discharged at the Muckleshoot fireworks stands, now through July 5; Sunday through Thursday between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m..; and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 12 a.m. Legal fireworks that may be discharged in the city on the Fourth of July include sparklers, cylindrical fountains, cone fountains, illuminating torches, wheels, ground spinners, flitter sparklers and smoke devices. In addition, the following can be discharged on federal tribal lands: sky rockets, chasers, missile-type rockets, mortars, firecrackers and salutes. Please report fireworks complaints to 253-288-2121.

He went on to get a teaching degree at the University of Puget Sound and a Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of Washington.  Despite his left side paralysis, Jim didn’t let it slow him down. He worked as a Psychiatric Social Worker at Rainier School in Buckley, WA for 35 years, where he was well liked by staff & parents.  Jim married Wanda in 1968, and they celebrated their 50th anniversary just last year. Jim loved being a Dad to his two sons, Doug and Joe. And delighted in his two daughters-in-law, Megan and Keri. He was blessed with four sweet grandsons: Tyler, Elliott, William & Ruston. Jim loved many things, but especially: his sports teams, Scrabble, flashlights, Fig Newtons, the Auburn Senior Center, playing dummy rummy, traveling with our camping buddies, his family, his friends & his church.  A celebration of Jim’s life will be held on Saturday, July 13th at 3pm at Family of Grace Lutheran Church in Auburn, WA.

Spending money we don’t have While reading last Friday’s front page article, “On the cusp of budget shortfalls,” I pondered two questions: If our budget is in the red, how can we afford to hire a consultant? And how can the city spend more than it takes in? We don’t need a highpriced consultant to tell us that more money is needed to maintain current city services. We need to stop funding the least important

services. I noticed in Monday’s city council meeting agenda that they would vote for a third time to amend the budget and spend $538,000 more than the previous budget amount. Auburn City Council members should be in emergency mode, hard at work to stop the leaks in the money flow – not agreeing to purchase a man-lift and trailer. We are already spending 6-plus million dollars more than we have. Again, where is the money going to come from? The high-priced consultant will tell us to find more revenue sources, which means tax the citizens even

Then he turned and went to his house, never attempting to sell anything to them again. Peterson’s examples are extreme, but we all find ourselves in situations where we don’t know what to say. The point of Peterson’s Rule No. 8 is that taking the easy way out versus telling

the truth is more than two different choices – they are two different ways of living. Telling the truth in a humble and caring way, or at least not lying, is a far better life choice than telling an untruth. When in doubt tell the truth.

OK, you are afraid of guns, don’t like ’em, don’t own any and wish they were banned. We get it. Most gun owners are not criminals, they own guns but don’t shoot people, and because I do own them I could easily be the guy who saves your life. Go after criminals, not lawful gun owner’s rights. Instead, you drag out the old thoroughly defeated argument about “well regulated militias.” and go on to say that militias in 1791 were supposedly somehow different then because in 2019 the largest and best armed forces today make defending oneself “patently absurd.” Then there is the

Famously, over and again, liberal “progressive” mayors prey on most large cities using unworkable tax-and-spend policies that always result in poverty, ruined education systems and excessive gun crimes despite the fact these same cities all ban guns. And unlike (Rosen), I don’t compare myself to my neighbors, especially those who won’t own guns to protect themselves. I am likewise not impressed with other so-called “developed nations” that America defends with our guns every time they are attacked.

Police say one of the private homes Obet entered was in the 400 block of 23rd Street Southeast, and the other was in the 400 block of 22nd Street Southeast.

finance credit that requires construction to start by the close of 2019. Also, in 2020, with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) expecting to increase the map boundaries for flood plains in the project area, it is crucial for Inland to show progress . “We expect to have shovels in the ground by the end of the year, and we expect a 21-23 month construction schedule,” Morris said. State law allows development agreements

between cities and developers, permitting developers to do something more, more intense, or more well defined than what a zoning code allows, and at the same time, allows the city to ask that more be done than what it typically would have the authority to request. Robertson’s original plan called for a 70-acre development, offering more than $2 million worth of off-site and infrastructure improvements, among them, the long-sought extension of I Street Northeast, 1.6 million square feet of office space, 720,000 square feet of retail commercial and big box stores, and 500 multi-family

units above ground-floor retail. But eight seasons came and went with little to show, and locals lost patience with a project that appeared to be a giant fizzle. What the public didn’t know was that, taking stock of changes in market conditions over that span, Robertson had lost interest in its holding and was looking to unload it. Inland was willing to bite, but, as its principals told the council in April, they could not afford to build what Robertson had intended. Inland’s project would instead focus on “amenity-rich living options tailored around a healthy

living environment” that provides access to trails and outdoor open space, community gardens of at least 800 square feet, a community trail system, two playgrounds, outdoor amenities and a pool. “We also have the privately-owned-and-programmed community open space, which we are calling ‘the heart,’ with a stage for performances … a movie theater and space for five food trucks with power and utilities hooked up to them,” Morris said. One of Inland’s most important requests to the city was to remove a stricture that specified only

vertical construction at the site; that is, retail on the ground floor, and residential above. Inland’s proposal calls for horizontal construction. As originally conceived, Morris noted, RPG’s project was hampered by pending FEMA flood plain designations at the site, which would reduce the amount of developable acreage. It’s entirely possible, Morris said in April, that RPG over promised the city back in the day. Witness to that, he said, is that even though the nation has been emjoying one of the most robust economies throughout those years of idleness,

nothing happened at the site. That RPG wanted out, Morris continued, made it more difficult to find someone to come to the development as it was described in the DA: to plunk down more than $15 million for 70 acres of land; to do $2 million in infrastructure work just to start construction, construction that alone could cost cost more than $100 million, he said; and finally, to hope that there’s a commercial environment out there that can return the money invested in an economy that day by day becomes more about e-commerce.

people of color at the table, don’t tell us to be quiet. It’s not OK.” Das, who defeated two-term state Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn, in November for the 47th Legislative District seat that represents parts of Kent, Auburn, Covington and Renton, said things really change in Olympia when the 28-member Democratic caucus meets behind closed doors to discuss bills. “After they close that door, that’s when it gets real,” Das said. “That’s when my 28 colleagues got real. And that’s when I heard hate, misogyny and racism and sexism from people you would not expect. That’s the type of light I want to shine. Now, when there are eight people of color in the Senate Democratic caucus, it was coded language – ‘those people.’ They would say things that were coded.” Das is vice chair of the Senate Housing Affordability & Stability Committee, and a member of the Senate Transportation Committee; the Senate Financial Institutions, Economic Development &

Trade Committee; and the Senate Environment, Energy & Technology Committee. Das, who has three years remaining on her four-year term, told the crowd she wanted to share what goes on in the marble halls of Olympia because it matters who gets elected to office. “My life, his life, and all these lives are in danger everyday when your elected officials don’t actually represent everybody,” she said while pointing out people of color in the audience. Senate Democrats issued a press release in November that the Senate would be led in 2019 by the most diverse leadership team in the history of the Legislature that included two deputy leaders who are women of color: Seattle Sen. Rebecca Saldaña, the only Latina in the chamber; and Redmond Sen. Manka Dhingra, the first Sikh woman ever elected to a state legislature. But even that leadership wasn’t enough to change the ways of some senators in the Capitol. “I am going to say it again,” Das said. “The hate, sexism, racism and misogyny I experienced when that caucus room door closed would shock only the white folks in

the room because the brown folks know it’s there.” Das said she was proud of legislation adopted that will help people of color, women, poor people and business people. “I am going to tell you how hard it was to pass some of this legislation,” she said. “The only reason it passed is because we had six new senators. Of the six of us, three of us are people of color, two are lesbians and one is Jewish. And we were all much younger than our colleagues, and that is what changed the Legislature this year.” The first-year senator plans to play a large role in changing the ways of the Legislature. Das, who has run a small mortgage business for 14 years, announced she had started up a new business as a consultant to people of color running for office. Her first two clients are Kent City Council candidate Awale Farah and Burien City Council candidate Sofia Aragon. Farah is running against Barry Fudenski, Ron Johnson and Zandria Michaud on the Aug. 6 primary ballot. Aragon’s opponents are Robert L. Richmond, III and Debi Wagner.

Dog Grooming Monday - Friday & 2 Saturdays a month


For many dogs, the Fourth of July is a traumatic day filled with bright flashes and loud booms. Extremely frightened dogs may run away. To keep pets safe, many professionals suggest the following: Consult your veterinarian long before the celebrations begin. Confirm that your pet is microchipped, and the contact info is current. Discuss and obtain medications your pet might need to be comfortable. There are

many options, ranging from calming herbs and essential oils to prescription and over-the-counter products, body wraps and more. Be sure your pet’s ID tag is up to date and you have recent, clear photos of Fido in the event your dog is lost. Exercise and feed your dog before the fireworks begin. Give Fido an early bedtime that includes a new chew bone or stuffed hard rubber toy to distract him. If your dog is crate trained, use it. If not, make sure your dog’s bed is in a room where you can close the windows, turn on fans and a radio or

TV to block out the noise and flashes of light. Avoid taking your dog outside during the fireworks; however, if he does need a potty stop be sure it’s on leash and quick. Frightened dogs have been known to climb fences and squeeze through small openings in an attempt to escape. Do not take your dog to a public fireworks display. Most dogs are very uncomfortable in a crowd of people with blasts and light shows exploding all around them. A previously normal dog can develop a life-long fear of loud noises in just one evening. The next morning be sure to walk your yard and pick up any paper, plastic and other debris that might have landed in your yard. Have a safe and sane Fourth of July with your four-legged friends.

Vintage race cars of all makes and classifications will fill the Pacific Raceways’ road course for the Pacific Northwest on July 5-7. COURTESY PHOTO, Karl Noakes

Roar of yesteryear

Vintage car racing returns to Pacific Raceways By Mark Klaas

Vintage cars, a storied racetrack and a grand setting. All of which makes Pacific Raceways a fitting back yard for drivers, mechanics and fans yearning to see yesteryear racing. Kent’s 10-turn, 2.25-mile road course comes to life with horsepower blasts from the past with the 31st annual Pacific Northwest Historics (PNWH) vintage auto races July 5-7. The show-and-tell race showcase, known world wide, is considered one of the largest and most prestigious stops on the national vintage race-car calendar. Pacific Northwest Historics Vintage Racing Charities and the Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts (SOVREN) present the three-day program, a benefit for Seattle Children’s, with the majority of the proceeds supporting uncompensated care at the hospital. The field includes 300-plus entries of all makes and models, featuring many of the world’s rarest and most pristine pre-1985 race cars. “One way people describe it is ‘we’re not just collecting art, we’re racing it,’ because these cars are art,” said Martin Rudow, a former racer, president of the PNWH and past president of SOVREN. “They’re beautiful pieces of machinery, and much more so now than then. Now, cars are much more utilitarian. In those days, a lot more went into the design of the car, its aesthetics, and that’s something that we really celebrate.” True to tradition, the

PNW HISTORICS AT A GLANCE • Event: 31st annual Pacific Northwest Historics vintage auto races • Track: Pacific Raceways, 31001 144th Ave. SE, Kent • Schedule: July 5-7.

Favorite marques include BMW, Mustangs, Camaros, Porsches, Alfa Romeos and Ferrari. Celebrating 50 years of IMSA Racing • Special guests: Kathy Rude, the first woman to capture an IMSA class win (1982 at the 24 Hours of Daytona). Mitch Bishop, son of IMSA founder John Bishop, who is an active racer and author of a new book, “IMSA 1969-1989.” • Admission: Adults: $25 one-day pass Friday, Saturday or Sunday, $40 multiple day pass; children ages 7-16: $5 per day; children 6 years and under are free; military with identification $10 per day. • More information:,

vintage race program brings out fan-favorite marques BMW, Mustangs, Camaros, Porsches, Alfa Romeos and Ferrari. Corvettes and Camaros will give chase. Even unheralded race cars – like Marcos, Devin, and Piper – will appear. Car owners and tuners come from throughout the Pacific Northwest, along the West Coast and Canada. Most of the machines are in mint condition through extensive restoration, and many attain straightaway speeds in excess of 150 miles per hour. But vintage car racing isn’t about going wheel-towheel or challenging the leader bumper-to-bumper through tight corners and narrow passing zones in the straightaway. “It’s hard racing but it’s not running somebody into the wall or pushing them off the track … that kind of thing,” Rudow said. “A lot of cars out there will be driven hard and

fast, but in vintage racing there’s a lot more respect for the vehicles than there are for other types of racing.” The weekend celebrates the 50th anniversary of IMSA racing, a popular and premier sports car racing series that grew and thrived over five decades. “It was the biggest thing in road racing,” Rudow added. “It had the biggest races and the wildest cars.” Rudow encourages fans to take in the road course from all viewpoints, visit the paddock and pit area and see the cars and drivers up close between races. The stop at Pacific Raceways is a family-friendly experience, a time to revere racing’s past, Rudow said. “It’s a great tribute to all the great days in motor racing,” he said. “Nowadays is great, too, but these were really fabulous days with wonderful cars and big personalities. It is a salute to all of that.”
