REBIRTH. (Above) Marks’ film "Joenah" will be released early next year. (Below) A shot of Joenah (Caden Geer) shortly before he gets bullied.

owerful films can change us in ways we don’t expect. The best films leave us with something to think about and can be a powerful tool in addressing problems in the world. This is what Tacoma native Gregory Marks and his nonprofit Right Now Today are hoping to accomplish with their upcoming film “Joenah,” a hopeful launching point to jumpstart a discussion about bullying in the community. The film follows the titular Joenah, a young kid dealing with bullies at school, and his journey toward finding peace. The film will be nearly completely silent, allowing the audience to focus on the message. The movie is filming now and should be released next year. “I hope that it raises the aware-

“If I can do anything to help change anything in any way, that’s why I made this movie.” – Director and Right Now Today founder Gregory Marks ness of the psychological effects of bullying,” Marks said. Right Now Today’s bullying campaign will go beyond just the film, as Marks is planning to travel to various schools around the region to speak about this very serious subject. Studies find that one in four children experience bullying in school, and that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying. “If I can do anything to help change anything in any way, that’s why I made this movie,” Marks said.

Though the victims are obviously important, Right Now Today’s upcoming campaign will also focus on those that are doing the bullying. “The people that are doing the bullying, why are they doing this? An inferiority complex, insecurity, whatever it is, I want to reach the whole problem,” Marks said. “I think you need to understand what’s going on before you can have an opinion or a understanding of why that situation happens.” u See BULLYING / page A9



SCHOOL’S IN. (Back to front) Reverend Ivory Crittendon, Tacoma

City Councilmember Victoria Woodards, founder Kristina Bellamy, Ms.Washington Dionne Tarter and Chief Executive Officer of the Washington State Charter Schools Association Thomas Franta cut the ribbon on SOAR Academy


This school year, history will be made as the very first charter schools in Washington open their doors to students eager to learn, including Tacoma’s own SOAR Academy, located at 2136 Martin Luther King Jr. Way. The school has been a longtime vision of founder Kristina Bellamy, a teacher looking for a place where all learners are

provided with a highly rigorous, engaging and personalized education. That dream became a reality, and on Monday, Aug. 17, 104 kindergarten and 1st-grade students walked through the doors of the academy. But before that, on Saturday, as final preparations were being made, the community took the time to reflect on the accomplishment of the school with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

If voters have anything to say on the matter, plans for Pierce County’s $230 million facility on Tacoma’s Pacific Avenue hillside has at least an uncertain future. An advisory vote on the Aug. 4 ballot tallied 55 percent “no” votes on whether county officials should move forward with the project. Plans include the construction of a general services hub to house some 1,000 county workers who are currently working in leased offices around Tacoma.

The City of Tacoma is sending out letters to the more than 60 medical marijuana dispensaries in the city as a first step toward tighter regulations now that the state has started its own enforcement clock. The letters, which call for the dispensaries to close within 45 days, are meant to cut the tally of medical marijuana shops to about a dozen. “We don’t need 60 stores selling marijuana in

Pothole pig’s


16th and Fawcett Tacoma has a tremendous pothole problem, and the residents know it. During the past couple of years, the city has acknowledged this issue by spending millions of dollars in major arterial repairs with the council’s “pothole initiative.” In 2010, routine maintenance by Tacoma’s Grounds and Maintenance Division completed street repairs on 229,638 square feet of road. In 2011, the city repaired about 150,000 more square feet of roads riddled with holes, and continue those efforts. While that may sound like a lot of ground, new holes pop up – or return – each and every day, which means a pothole-free road might never exist in Tacoma. With the help of our readers and our dedicated Pothole Pig, we will continue to showcase some of the city’s biggest and best potholes through our weekly homage to one of T-Town’s most unnerving attributes. Help the Pothole Pig by e-mailing your worst pothole suggestions to Potholes in need of repair can be reported to the City of Tacoma by calling (253) 591-5495.

Bulletin Board CITY LAUNCHES LINCOLN DISTRICT REVITALIZATION PROJECT The City of Tacoma invites residents to a community kick-off event launching the Lincoln District Revitalization Project on Thursday, Aug. 20, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department (3629 S. D St.). The open house will give residents a chance to hear about the neighborhood revitalization initiatives and give public comment on the South 38th Streetscape design. “When the City Council identified revitalization of the Lincoln Mixed Use Center as a priority in 2014, we set the stage to improve the quality of life for neighborhood residents and attract more private investment,” said Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland. “The Lincoln neighborhood has unique assets such as Lincoln High School, Lincoln Park and the multicultural business district – it's now time to direct resources and make a noticeable impact.” The project is the City’s first effort at implementing a neighborhood revitalization model that could be brought to other areas in the future. Infrastructure improvements for the South 38th Streetscape Project serves as the cornerstone of the overall revitalization effort. Other key areas of the project include initiatives to improve public safety, housing and property conditions, human services, and economic development service delivery in the area. “I’ve been working with several community members and business owners in the Lincoln area for the past few years, and what I hear from them is that they would like more of a City presence here,” said District 4 Council Member Marty Campbell. “I’m excited about this project because it addresses issues in the business district as well as the surrounding neighborhood, and I think this will provide a great opportunity for community-building.” For more information, visit or email UPCOMING EVENT ROAD CLOSURES THROUGH AUG. 30 Please note the anticipated event-related road closures expected around Tacoma through Sunday, Aug. 30: · On Saturday, Aug. 22, the End of Summer Party event will close South 8th Street between Court A and Pacific Avenue from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. · On Saturday, Aug. 22, a private block party event will close the alley at South 14th Street between South Sheridan Avenue and South M Street from noon to 4 p.m. · On Saturday, Aug. 22, Hilltop Street Fair will close select portions of streets between South 9th, South 13th, South L and South I streets from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. · On Saturday, Aug. 22, a private block party event will close North Baltimore Street between North 31st and North 33rd streets from 2-8 p.m. · On Saturday, Aug. 29, the Back to School Block Party will close Altheimer Street between South 11th and South 12th streets from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ongoing: · The Proctor’s Farmers Market closes North 27th from North Proctor to North Madison streets every Saturday from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. · The 6th Avenue Farmers Market closes North Pine Street from 6th Avenue to North 7th Street every Tuesday from 3-7 p.m. · The Broadway Farmer’s Market closes Broadway from South 9th to South 11th streets every Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Closures may change as a result of weather, event alterations and other unexpected circumstances.

DEFIANCE We're in the home stretch of a long process to update the Point Defiance Park Master Plan. After dozens of meetings, hundreds of citizen comments and a lot of planning over the past decade, the Park Board is scheduled to take a vote on the proposed update Monday, Aug. 24. The Park Board meeting Monday night was an excellent example of citizen involvement. More than a dozen people rose to share their views with the Park Board. Some had served on the Master Plan steering committee. Many had not. There were many positive comments about Metro Parks, the plan and the park itself. There are two more critical meetings before the master plan is adopted, and we ask that you attend and invite people you know to speak during citizen comment times. Our elected officials want to hear from park users: 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 24, at Metro Parks Headquarters, 4702 S. 19th St.: The Park Board will vote on the proposed Master Plan Update. There will be two times available for citizens to speak: Once after the start of the meeting, and once just before a vote is taken on the Master Plan Update. Date to be determined, but likely in September - at City Council Chambers, Tacoma Municipal Building, 747 Market St.: Citizen comments will be accepted, and they will be critical, because this hearing will be the first formal setting in which the Council hears from residents about the plan. We will share more details when the date is confirmed. You can read the draft Master Plan Update at GET LUCKY AT ACM’S NEWEST EXHIBIT “My husband never met a car he didn’t like,” said Nancy LeMay about her late husband Harold “Lucky”

LeMay. He at one time owned more than 3,000 cars, earning him a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. Harold’s legacy will be presented in “Lucky’s Garage,” the first permanent display at America’s Car Museum (ACM). The exhibit opens Aug. 28 and will feature 50 treasured vehicles from the Harold E. LeMay Collection, including a 1947 Cadillac Series 62 2-Door Convertible, a 1922 Ford Model T Touring, a 1930 Packard 740 Custom Super Eight Convertible, a 1933 Hupmobile Series I-326 and a 1953 Kaiser Dragon. “Harold was a true American success story,” said ACM President and COO Paul E. Miller. “He was raised during the Great Depression, worked extremely hard and became an accomplished businessman and car collector. His affinity for a wide cross-section of automobiles is at the core of what ACM is about – America’s history and love affair with the automobile during the last 100 years. Lucky’s Garage will engage and educate visitors about Harold and his passion for cars.” The ACM exhibit opening coincides with the 38th Annual LeMay Car Show car show and auction on Aug. 29 at the LeMay Family Collection at the Marymount Event Center, a few miles from ACM. It houses vehicles and other Americana (dolls, toys, antiques, farm equipment, etc.) from Harold LeMay’s personal collection. “Harold bought cars for their historical and cultural value, as well as their beauty, not as an investment,” said Nancy LeMay. “He’d say, ‘I like unusual cars, I don’t go for just the dollar value car. If I see it and I like it, I buy it.’ And he bought a lot of them.” According to Miller, ACM and the LeMay Family Collection constantly work together to honor Harold. “He really was a maverick,” said Miller. “Harold wasn’t a Chevy, Ford or Duesenberg man – he liked everything, and that’s what we want to show in Lucky’s Garage.” For more information on Lucky’s Garage or other ACM exhibits and events, visit

ZEIGER APPOINTED TO JOINT COMMITTEE ON VETERANS’ AND MILITARY AFFAIRS Rep. Hans Zeiger (R-Puyallup) has been appointed to serve on the Joint Committee on Veterans' and Military Affairs by House Speaker Frank Chopp. "We are blessed to have so many service members living and serving in the South Sound," said Zeiger. "We need to do all we can to ensure Washington state is a welcoming place for soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. We also owe our neighbors who have served in the past our continued thanks. Our veterans should be included in policy discussions of all kinds, and we should ensure that benefits and incentives are in place to keep veterans in Washington when they leave active service." As the ranking Republican on the House Higher Education Committee, Zeiger said that the Legislature has "made progress on veterans' access to higher education in the past few years, but we need to do more. We need to make Washington state colleges and universities the most veteran-friendly higher education institutions in America." In 2012, Gov. Christine Gregoire signed legislation sponsored by Zeiger allowing recipients of the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Distinguished Service Cross, Air Force Cross, and Navy Cross to display special decals on their license plates. Zeiger was inspired to introduce the bill by a D-Day veteran living in the 25th District. Outside the Legislature, Zeiger currently serves as an officer in the Washington Air National Guard. He is a member of the 194th Wing headquartered at Camp Murray near Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The bipartisan 16-member Joint Committee on Veterans’ and Military Affairs was created in 2001 and studies issues regarding veterans, active military forces and the National Guard. Members are tasked with making recommendations to the Legislature. The committee also studies the structure and administration of the Washington State Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the military department. For more information about Zeiger, visit: HECK SUPPORTS PLAN TO STOP NUKES IN IRAN U.S. Congressman Denny Heck (WA-10) has announced his support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The JCPOA is an international agreement reached by the P5+1 nations (China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) that is aimed at preventing Iran from manufacturing a nuclear weapon. "Following extensive briefings, meetings with constituents, and a thorough reading of the entire agreement, I strongly believe that the Iran nuclear deal is the best avenue forward to protect against Iran developing a nuclear weapon. As I have said repeatedly: there is no scenario in which the world is better off with Iran having a nuclear weapon. This agreement blocks any path to building nuclear weapons. It gives Iran no room to hide. If they try to cheat, we'll know. At that point, previous sanctions will immediately be reimposed. This is a strong agreement that passes every test. "I thank the Obama Administration and the P5+1 for pursuing a responsible way to global stability. We must let the best diplomatic path towards peace prevail." see more bulletin boArd items At

MOTHER OF MURDERED MAN PLEADS FOR HELP By David Rose Washington’s Most Wanted - Q13 Fox

An Oregon man attending a family reunion in Tacoma died days after detectives say he was attacked by several suspects. Now, Lakewood Police need your help put- DAVID ROSE ting the pieces together to figure out who’s behind Tony Bowers’ murder. On July 18, Bowers was attacked by four men after leaving his family reunion to get food. They think it happened somewhere between the Walmart on Bridgeport Way and Manitou Park on 66th Street in Tacoma. He told his family he had been assaulted but didn't go into details. He had bruising and injuries to his head. His mom says after the assault her son went back to the party and acted like nothing was wrong. She says no one there could tell he was hurt. “He’s kind of a private guy. He’s macho, didn’t want to say anything, you know; but on the way back driving he thought maybe it was his medicine, getting headaches and getting dizzy,” said Sharon Mrokowski. Mrokowski said her son was rushed to the hospital days later in Oregon, and had multiple surgeries to remove multiple brain clots. “His fiancé still had lots of hope,” Mrokowski said. “She worked at the hospital, hoped it would turn around, we kind

MAN CHARGED IN DEADLY PUYALLUP SHOOTING RAMPAGE Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist has charged Nathen Ryan Terault, 34, with murder for the shooting death of 71-year-old Puyallup-resident Richard Johnson. In addition to murder in the first degree, Terault was charged with robbery in the first degree, 12 counts of assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree, attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle, and unlawful possession of a firearm in the first degree. He pleaded not guilty and is being held in lieu of $5 million bail. “As horrible as this was, it would have been worse if Puyallup police hadn’t arrived at the scene as quickly as they did,” said Lindquist. “We’ve charged the shooter with 17 felonies and he’ll be held fully accountable.” On Aug. 11, Terault fled from Puyallup Police officers who were attempting to stop him for speeding. He abandoned his u See SHOOTING / page A7

of knew, it was really serious.” Mrokowski said her son died soon after. Now, Lakewood Police need your help finding Tony’s attackers. “We’re not sure what happened to Tony in that hour and a half that he may have been gone from Manitou Park to Walmart to back,” said Lakewood Police Lt. Chris Lawler. “Did he stop anywhere? Did he get involved in a fight? We really just don’t know those details, but we’re hoping the public would either remember seeing his vehicle parked somewhere, saw him at a convenience store, maybe saw a fight, but we have nothing that was reported, so we’re really wondering what happened to Tony.” His family needs answers as well. Tony’s

mom is doing all she can do, pleading to the public to share anything they know about the attack. “It would mean a lot to all of us to know. It’s not going to bring him back, I know that nothing’s going to, but just to know," she said. If you know anything about Bowers’ attackers or if you think you saw his teal 2003 BMW or anything on July 18 in the area between Manitou Park and the Lakewood Walmart just before 5 p.m. that can help solve his murder, call an anonymous tip into Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County at 1 (800) 222-TIPS (8477). There is a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.

Some men just want to watch the world burn, like a vandal at a Union Avenue shopping hotspot on Aug. 15. The man entered the store and promptly began cutting up packages on shelves with a folding knife. Some things he concealed on his person, other things he simply mutilated and put back, including a cell phone case and a package of Advantix Flea Remover. The man’s reign of terror was put to a stop when store security detained him and officers arrived on the scene. The criminal was issued a citation for malicious mischief, which is also the name of my new band. Another criminal, driving drunk, didn’t have the ride home he intended to when he nearly rear-ended a police officer performing a routine traffic stop at Sprague Avenue on Aug. 14. The man narrowly avoided the officer’s patrol car, which was parked in the curb lane with lights flashing, and continued on his way. The officer wasn’t too content with that and hopped back in his car to pull the man and his wife over. The driver claimed he had just had a vodka cranberry two hours early, but voluntary sobriety tests showed otherwise and the man was placed under arrest for driving under the influence and transported to Pierce County Jail.

COUNTY WINS K-9 LAWSUIT The Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney’s Civil Division recently won a lawsuit filed in federal court. The plaintiff accused a Pierce County Sheriff’s deputy of using excessive force when the plaintiff, who was being arrested on a felony warrant, ran from the police. He was bitten by a K-9 police dog. He asked for unspecified damages for medical expenses, loss of income and emotional distress. On Feb. 6, 2011, deputies arrived at a home near Puyallup to arrest the plaintiff on a felony warrant. Deputies asked for K-9 assistance because the plaintiff was known to run from police. When deputies knocked on the front door, there was a delay before one of the occupants answered and told the deputies that the plaintiff was in the basement. They went downstairs and searched several empty rooms. Then they heard one of the occupants yell, “Run, Ron, run!” The plaintiff ran out the backdoor, making his way towards the woods. In

order to avoid a dangerous chase into the woods, a deputy released his K-9. The dog was able to apprehend the plaintiff, biting him once on the arm. The K-9 was called off within seconds and medics were called to the scene. The plaintiff claimed that the officers used excessive force and were also liable under Washington’s Dog Bite Law. According to the plaintiff’s evolving story, he was not fleeing from police, but was either going out for a smoke, getting some fresh air, or checking the back door to see who was knocking on the front door. He also claimed the deputy should have made an announcement prior to releasing the K-9. “We take strong stands against baseless lawsuits,” said Prosecutor Mark Lindquist. The jury deliberated for less than an hour and returned a defense verdict, finding that the deputy used reasonable force and there was no liability under Washington’s Dog Bite Law.

SAnderS to the Second Power

By Tom H. Hastings

With no assistance from the major media, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is drawing larger crowds than any candidate currently running for anything in the U.S. The largest crowd to date was in my town, Portland, OR, this past week. More than 28,000 showed up to hear a skinny, 73-yearold white-haired curmudgeon rant and promise. He also had a secret weapon he unveiled to great effect. Symone Sanders is a 25-yearold African American who is now Sanders’s press secretary. But more powerfully, she was the MC, introducing three young speakers in a series of endorsements and short warm-ups – labor, immigrants, and climate change. They all did very well indeed. But Symone Sanders blasted it over the fence in her eight minutes on the most divisive issue facing the nation and the Sanders campaign – violence against unarmed African Americans. She took it head-on, simply calling for a new national spirit of justice and reconciliation with a powerful denunciation of the systemic violence that divides us so painfully. She didn’t

shrink from saying Black Lives Matter, nor from naming many of those killed in the past 12 months around the nation. She brought the house down with her charismatic clarity. It wasn’t rage; it was a pitch-perfect channeling of the pain felt by so many for so long, but framed with determined hope and challenge. In the words of Annie Dillard, I felt like a bell that had been lifted and struck. Tens of thousands echoed that resonance. Sanders the Younger finished, said thank you, and Sanders the Elder strode out to a tumultuous crowd on fire – Portland could “feel the Bern.� Bernie’s speech was a synthesis of the catalog of problems the Occupy movement addressed with almost zero effectiveness anywhere. Where the Occupy movement was outside electoral politics, Sanders is the first to forcefully bring it all inside. He excoriated the anti-democratic Supreme Court decision, Citizens United, that redefines corporations as people and introduces unprecedented levels of corruption into politics that make Daley’s Chicago or Boss Tweed’s New York look like choir practice. Bernie called our extreme income inequality the “great moral issue of our time,� and offered a several-point

program to mitigate it. He called for support for the Iran nuclear deal – and this is from a certified Jewish friend of Israel. He outlined a plan to bring a great deal more funds to help reduce or eliminate college expenses for qualified students – effectively a mass scholarship for hardworking US students. His presidency would signal an end to oil corporate impunity and strong climate change mitigation measures. He was rhetorical about some issues, borderline wonkish about others, and never finished more than two sentences without needing to wait for the boisterous, thunderous applause to subside. If Sanders continues to capture hearts and minds, he will be the next president in the greatest upset since a peanut farmer knocked off an incumbent insider during America’s Bicentennial year. If he continues to surround himself with talented, dedicated, articulate and passionate young campaign workers he might just make it happen. Dr. Tom H. Hastings is core faculty in the Conflict Resolution Department at Portland State University and is Founding Director of PeaceVoice.

BoB Morton rePreSented hiS PeoPle unconditionAlly By Don C. Brunell Imagine rolling into Olympia in your travel trailer each year for the start of the legislative session knowing your district has the highest unemployment in the state and the lowest average annual wage. Folks in your sprawling rural 7th District earn between $15,000 and $20,000 less than the state average wage. Stevens, Pend Orielle, Ferry and Okanogan counties are rich in minerals and have abundant forests and natural public grazing lands, but over the years mining, logging and lumber mill jobs dried up, in large part due to government regulations and restrictions. Imagine that your constituents ask you: “Why don’t the folks in Seattle understand that we need jobs to support our families? We have a very different economy in northeast Washington!� Bob Morton, a soft-spoken and gentle Methodist minister, served in the Washington State Legislature for 22 years. He never lost sight of the fact that one in 10 people in his district did not have a job. Morton, who died on Aug. 6, grew up on a dairy farm, was a rancher, logger, bush pilot, and cloud seeder, as well as a minister. He was a humble man who always had a kind word for people regardless of whether he agreed with them or not. He got into politics because he

wanted to serve the people. Bob Morton didn’t run for the legislature so he could leverage his office to make friends in high places who could help him further his political career. Morton thought about running for public lands commissioner only because of the vast amount of government owned land in that part of Washington. It troubled him that government supplanted logging, mining and farming as the district’s main employer. He believed that putting people to work in the private sector produced the tax dollars that would provide the funds for schools, roads, fire protection and law enforcement. Morton saw what was happening to rural counties, especially when the Obama Administration cut payments to timber dependent rural counties dollars meant to replace the income from logging on U.S. Forest Service lands. During his time in the legislature, he saw timber sales on state forests dwindle even as a majority of the northeast Washington forests got hammered by the mountain pine beetle. He was perplexed because, rather than salvaging the dead trees and milling them, they were left strewn across the landscape – tinder for the next large wildfire. Morton got so frustrated that he and former Spokane Senator Bob McCaslin, a fellow Republican, led a

movement to create a 51st state. The state would be called Lincoln and would include eastern Washington and northern Idaho. Lincoln never happened and Bob Morton retired in 2012 to minister to his friends at Orient Community Church near Colville. Bob Morton wasn’t a headline grabber or flamboyant. He was a public servant in the truest sense of the word, because he deeply believed that he was elected to do the people’s work. He was mentor to Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who is the fourth highestranking Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives and the highestranking woman in Congress’ majority party. She was Morton’s legislative campaign manager and legislative assistant in Olympia. McMorris Rodgers recalled that Bob Morton led by example. He always told her to listen, listen, listen some more, learn, and then lead. “That’s the way he approached things,� she said in a recent Spokane Spokesman Review article. Good advice. Wouldn’t that be refreshing in politics today?

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, Regarding the cartoon on page 4 of the Aug. 14 issue, apparently cartoonist Milt Priggee would have us believe that the killer of the nine in that church in South Carolina is getting away entirely unpunished. Far from it. At the very least, he will never be released from prison alive as in life without parole sentence. Also assuming: A.) he could receive the death penalty as SC is one state that still has it unlike Washington with its weak-minded, namby-pamby political leaders like Inslee; B.) he doesn't get killed by other inmates while inside. Whatever point this idiotic excuse for a cartoonist was trying to make, he exemplifies the fact that most publications in this country, yours included, are nothing more that biased, 3rd-rate rags who don't give a damn about fairness or what was once known as equal time. Perhaps you shouldn't make the assumption that 100% of your readers will buy everything you print all the time. And perhaps Milt Priggee should realize that he'll never be everyone's darling except for those who prefer their political cartoons in the style of Dr. Goebbels. Bill Robertson s Parkland, WA

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, Much of high school is college preparatory, like algebra, social studies, English composition, etc., and they’re not relevant to the approaching life skills kids in high school need to learn. It would seem that time could be better spent teaching life skills like how to rent an apartment, what the landlord-tenant laws are and what a typical rental agreement looks like. Also, how to budget your money and what percentage of your income you should budget for rent, transportation and other monthly expenses. For transportation you could teach bus routes in our local community or you could learn about different ways to buy an automobile, how an automobile operates so if it breaks down you would know what the costs are of the different actions you might take to recover from the breakdown and

Lawmakers for years have cut and hacked their way through state programs and contracted those efforts out to private companies as a way to “cut waste� and “maximize efficiencies� under the banner of trying to manage state spending with a business mindset rather than as a trough from which to feed. Many of these changes make sense because they decreased spending with little or no drop in service or even added services at the same cost. That’s all good. It’s taxpayer dollars lawmakers are spending after all, so it make sense that those who we elect to public office would spend every dollar wisely and pinch every penny on our behalf. But that is really where the “business mind� of lawmakers seems to have ended, and here’s why. The state has a constitution – a company’s articles of incorporation, if you will – that declares funding for public education is the paramount duty of every lawmaker. It is the only duty listed as “the top priority.� Lawmakers were found to be in violation of that ONE DUTY in 2012, when the state Supreme Court found that the model Washington was using to fund public education failed to do that and ordered lawmakers to follow the state constitution – you know, their jobs. The high court even set a deadline. Sessions came and went. Lawmakers continued to do busy work rather than do their primary job. So it came to no surprise that the state Supreme Court ordered the state to pay $100,000 a day until the state’s elected bodies do the one job they were hired to perform. In the business world, a series of letters of reprimand followed by a financial hit would prompt workers to take matters seriously. But that’s not what lawmakers did. There will be no special session to call lawmakers back to work while they form a bipartisan committee to find a solution to lift the contempt order and stop the fines. The rationale behind not holding a special session is that lawmakers don’t have enough support for any of the brainstorming solutions developed so far, so calling them back would just waste more taxpayer dollars, since the lawmakers would still be drawing their paychecks for underperforming during the last three years. And heck, the fines won’t come from their paychecks, so what’s the rush? It’s not like $100,000 a day is their money. Some lawmakers have even called for the impeachment of the high court judges for “overreaching their authority� by upholding the constitution. Imagine what sort of process they are going to make on doing their top job when the whole concept of doing the job in the first place is in question. Is anyone taking bets on whether there will be more rounds of contempt orders, followed by inaction and more name calling before lawmakers take our kids seriously? The current ream of poor progress reports has only been followed by excuses and delays.

what the requirements of driving and owning an automobile are. Perhaps teach money management skills and what the relationship is between lifestyle and spending. Also maybe how much teachers, parents, etc. make per day and what their expenses are for housing, transportation, etc. I think that if you could relate to students about some real life situations, they can understand and see how it functions in the real world. It would be more interesting to students and more relevant for them instead of all these glorious notions of higher education and “everybody has to be a doctor and a lawyer to make more money� attitude. I think you would find more students interested in that kind of schooling. Gary L. Riley Tacoma, WA

Ditch the scAle AnD experience weight loss success At rAinier MeDicAl weight loss AnD wellness By Matt Nagle

As anyone who has experienced the cycle of dieting knows, losing weight can be a serious struggle. Keeping the weight off often proves to be the biggest challenge, with the losing-gaining-losing rollercoaster leading to discouragement, disappointing results and, sometimes, poor health in the long run. In addition, while some diet programs can succeed in helping you lose weight, studies show that half the weight you lose is muscle. However, there is a solution: medical weight loss, which ensures maximal muscle preservation. This means that in the end, you will be leaner, tighter and lighter, instead of “skinny fat� produced by starvation diets and unhealthy fasting. At Rainier Medical Weight Loss and Wellness (3555 Market Pl. W. in University Place), your health is in the experienced hands of trained professionals led by Dr. Valerie Sutherland, MD. Dr. Sutherland is a board-certified internal medicine physician with specialized training in weight loss and aesthetic

said. “Obesity is an epidemic and one of [the] leading causes of preventable disease and early death.� One way that Rainier Medical Weight Loss and Wellness helps clients kick the bathroom scale habit is to offer a body composition analysis for its clients, and for people who walk in, at a cost of $45. (Mention this article and receive the report and an interpretation from Dr. Sutherland for $25.) Body composition analysis is key. Since a person’s body weight is made up of muscle, fat and water, the key to effective weight loss is losing excess body fat, not overall body weight. Instead of tracking how heavy you are, body composition analysis tracks how healthy you really are rather than focusing on a single number on your bathroom scale. Body composition analysis allows you to focus on losing body fat and gaining muscle while retaining the proper amount of body water in specific areas of your body. Using the InBody570, Dr. Sutherland can accurately measure your body composition in less than 45 seconds and go over a results sheet that lists your body composition components. The InBody570 can also track your progress over time, as body composition analysis is the key to tracking and maintaining effective weight loss. Following individual consultation with Dr. Sutherland, clients who decide to proceed will receive a treatment plan with consideration to utilizing a combination of tools to reduce body fat: weight loss medications; medical foods scientifically formulated to promote fat loss, preserve lean tissue and control hunger; and strategies in nutrition, behavior and u See RAINIER / page A7

She completed her internal medicine internship and residency at George Washington University. Dr. Sutherland has been practicing medicine since 2002 as both a hospitalist and primary care physician. Dr. Sutherland is also an amateur bodybuilder who has won many competitions including the “Figure Overall� category at the 2014 Washington Ironman and first place in “Figure� at the 2014 NPC NWCC Northern Classic Championships. With this experience, she has practiced many of the skills, behaviors and techniques to achieve dramatic changes in the body, which helps her understand the challenges facing each of her patients as they embark on their personal journey toward their health goals. Consulting with patients one-on-one, Dr. Sutherland will develop an individualized program of medical weight loss to treat the metabolic condition of excess body fat based on your metabolic profile, health conditions and lifestyle. All of Rainier’s treatment plans are based on guidelines from the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, of which Dr. Sutherland is a member.

vehicle near Johnson’s home, where he shot Johnson twice, killing him. Terault then retrieved a bag from Johnson’s vehicle. After shooting Johnson, Terault fired several shots at a woman and her two children, who had been standing nearby. Neighbors at another home heard gunshots and saw Terault inside their truck. They yelled at Terault from inside their home and he fired several shots at them. One of the

residents ran to shut the garage door, but Terault entered the garage and fired a shot. As the woman ran to her front door, she encountered Terault. He pointed the gun at her face and demanded her car keys. She threw the keys at him and ran out of the house. Terault took the keys, started the woman’s vehicle and drove it through the garage door. While fleeing in the stolen car, Terault fired multiple shots at pursuing officers, striking their patrol cars. He also pointed his gun at a pedestrian during the pursuit. Terault collided with another

vehicle and then fired multiple shots at the occupants. After abandoning the stolen vehicle, Terault ran up to another occupied vehicle and fired multiple rounds into the driver’s side door. In an attempt to stop Terault, pursuing police officers fired at Terault, striking him once. Terault was also hit by a patrol car and was pinned under the vehicle. Officers called for medical aid and Terault was transported to the hospital. Charges are only allegations and a person is presumed innocent unless he or she is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Tacoma,� Mayor Marilyn Strickland said during a study session on the issue on Tuesday. The city first pondered sending the letters late last year, but opted to hold off until the state had a chance to establish state-wide rules on business practices. That happened during the marathon legislative session this year with the creation of a Liquor and Cannabis Board system to tighten regulations that will lead to many shops closing their doors next summer. The move is meant to strike a balance between providing reasonable access for patients to gain their medicine and an oversaturation of shops with little oversight. Medical marijuana dispensaries mushroomed around the city in recent years, particularly with the passage of tight regulations about recreational pot shops, which include heavy taxes and zoning requirements. The proliferation of medical shops, however, caused a rise in complaints about smells coming from the businesses, locations being too close to schools, parks and residential areas and the clustering of shops in some communities. “I’m uncomfortable with the direction that I see this industry moving,� City Councilmember Marty Campbell said. What started out five years ago as a very professional, clinic industry that was dispensing medicine has devolved into a clustering of shops that have colorful signs that promote the fact that a store is open

24 hours. “That causes me a lot of discomfort,� he said. He is not alone. Businesses share those concerns. “I don’t have a problem with regulations,� Managing Member of the five-year-old Triple C: the Cannabis Club Collective Brian Caldwell said. “I believe it should be regulated and have standards. It has been kind of the Wild West in Tacoma. If everyone would have read the ordinance, it wouldn’t have been an issue. The industry created its own mess.� His dispensary has unionized workers that only dispense products that have been independently tested and verified. His dispensary was one of the first to open in the city, so he’s confident he will be able to stay open. “As far as I know, we follow the ordinance to a ‘T,’� Caldwell said, who is also Chairman of the Northwest Producers, Processors and Retailers Association, the larg-

est cannabis trade group for the $250 million a year industry in the state. The LCB will begin offering dispensary licenses to businesses that were operation before 2013, have followed industry standards and have obtained all required licenses as well as paid all associated taxes. The city will follow the criteria to determine which shops can remain open within the city limits. Based on that standard, only 19 dispensaries in the city filed for state business licenses and less than a dozen date back to 2013. That means that of the 60 marijuana dispensaries known to exist in the city, only a few will avoid a second letter in the coming months from the city stating that orders them to shut down permanently. The first letter was a formal notice of the criteria so shops have time formulate a response since recipients of the second letter must shut down immediately and only have three days to appeal the decision.

(Right) Puyallup youth Sieona Squally (left) and Kyla Collins snap a selfie with Sen. Maria Cantwell.

keep coming and coming and coming. To see them all in the big ballroom was an amazing sight. It was inspiring.” For the Puyallup youth, getting an up close and personal view of Michelle Obama was a major highlight, and her words to the youth affected them all. “It was just really inspiring for me seeing a leader that big talking about Indian Country problems,” said Bryant. “She said she and her husband ‘have our back’ and that moment was really special.” Squally said it meant a lot to her for the Obamas to know and understand the struggles Indian youth and their communities face every day. “When you have somebody like the President and First Lady recognize those problems and know that they want to help us fix those problems, that was pretty big.” While in D.C. the Puyallup contingent met with four of our state’s members of Congress – Senator Maria Cantwell, Representative Denny Heck, Representative Derek Kilmer and Senator Patty Murray. “I was really nervous going into it because they seemed so official, but meeting them they were so casual and nice,” Bryant said. “I didn’t expect them to be like that. We were able to open up and talk about our issues.”

Squally said Maria Cantwell asked what she could do to help the Tribe. “I told her that since our Tribe is in the city and it’s also part of Fife, which is more of an industrial city, there’s all these semi trucks coming and going with all this pollution.” She said Maria Cantwell assured her that she’s working on the issue by working to establish alternatives to fuels that pollute. “They had a really good conversation with Senator Cantwell,” Reynon said. “They got to experience a little of what we (Tribal Council Members) go through when we go back there and it was good. You come to realize really quickly that they’re just people too. Granted, they are some of the most powerful people in the world, but they are very gracious and nice and they treated our youth with the utmost respect.” During the UNITY Conference, participants were immersed in a fiveday agenda that included internationally renowned speakers and trainers; physical fitness activities led by Nike N7; and youthled discussions and initiatives. Dozens of workshops here held that challenged the youth to think and to determine what action they would take to solve various issues in Indian Country. “All the tribes in Indian Country seem to have the same problems going on so it was easy to relate and come up with solutions to some of those problems,” Squally said.

Drug/alcohol abuse, suicide, bullying, and problem gambling were among the most major topics. Outdoors, youth gathered for a fire lighting ceremony and the flames burned throughout the conference as a symbol of unity and perseverance. “It was a place where if anyone was going through something or was having a hard time, they could go to the fire and cleanse themselves and smudge themselves with sage,” Squally said. For the Puyallup youth, and no doubt the rest of the tribal youth, the entire experience in Washington, D.C. was one they will never forget – and one that will likely help shape their young minds and hearts going into adulthood. Bryant said the experience was “life changing” in that it opened her eyes to just how special her Puyallup Tribe is. “Before going, I didn’t realize how much my Tribe does for me. Now I realize that and it makes me want to participate in all the events they put on, because they do so much for me and I want to help our community and the problems that go on. I feel like it’s my duty because of everything they do for me.” Squally, who will be a senior at Fife High School this fall, said she plans on going straight into college and is very interested in political science and government studies. In D.C. she watched a televised broadcast

of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, and she noticed the lack of Native Americans on the committee. “That’s something that made me want to, when I get older, go to the Indian Affairs Committee and be on that committee because it seems like they need more Native representation. They need more of a Native perspective. That makes me want to get more into politics,” she said. Currently, Reynon is working with tribal youth to establish a Puyallup Tribal Youth Council to help the youth develop ways to address the issues facing the Tribe from their perspective. “They’ve been working really hard developing the Youth Council proposal, the constitution and by-laws and all of that,” he said. “We have it in to Council, now just waiting for Council to approve it. Once that gets approved we can start moving forward and really get to work addressing the issues they see are important to them.” Reynon said he couldn’t be more proud of the Puyallup tribal youth in D.C. and looks forward to working with them more upon establishment of the Puyallup Tribal Youth Council. “Our youth were awesome – so respectful and appropriate. They represented our Tribe very, very well and I was proud to see them there. Our youth aren’t just leaders of the future, they are leaders today and that’s what we have here. We’re in good hands.”

t Bullying From page A1

Right Now Today as an organization has no one specific cause. They will focus on bullying in the upcoming year, but will eventually shift their efforts elsewhere. “We enhance and bring attention to other causes,� Marks posted on Right now Today’s website. "I want to make it very clear that Right Now Today is not an organization that advocates for one cause. What we are trying to do is help other organizations in need by contributing our time, support and resources, while spreading the message of working together to help others (humans helping humans).� This year, the organization has dedicated its efforts to discussing the issue of homelessness in America. Not only did Marks create the film, “Shift Paradigm,� that examines the issue of homelessness through the lens of Marks’ own experiences, but the group has also spent much of the year participating in 500 Bags of Love campaigns across the Northwest, equipping the homeless with essential living items. “500 Bags of Love is a project in which we collected a bunch of items shampoos toothbrushes, backpacks and other things you wouldn’t think of,� Marks said. Whatever the cause, Right Now Today holds to the idea of reinvention, that change is always possible. “One of the things were about is not perceiving as we see it but perceiving as it is. It comes down to the choices we make and the values we hold,� Marks said. “You can reinvent yourself, you have a choice, that’s a big emphasis on everything we do.� Though Right Now Today is an organization that is continually growing, Marks is staying true to his Tacoma roots, and making sure everyone knows where he’s from. “I’m from Tacoma, I love Tacoma. If I ever get famous I’m not going to say I’m from Seattle, I’m going to say I’m from Tacoma,� Marks said.

While the August vote was just an advisory one on how the County Council should proceed, the general election ballot on Nov. 3 has a binding referendum after a citizens group gathered the required number of signatures to call for a vote. The council-initiated advisory vote, therefore, is both a statement by voters against the project as well as a barometer for the general election in the fall. Another glitch in the hub plans is that interest rates are on the rise, so a delay in finalizing the deal could lead to a scenario where the plans pass the November referendum but no longer save money.



The field of candidates for Tacoma City Council officially got smaller now that the primary election results have been counted. One of the most watched races in Tacoma is that of City Council incumbent Anders Ibsen, who gained 47 percent of the vote in a three-way primary race. His challenger for the District 1 seat in the general election will be John Hines. Hines was endorsed by every current City Council member, except Ibsen and Ryan Mello. The only other contested council seat on the primary was that for Lauren Walker’s district that encompasses Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood. She is not allowed to seek another term because of the city’s term limits. The race for her open seat had a seven-



candidate slate that has been narrowed to a matchup between frontrunner Tom McCarthy with 25 percent of the vote and his closest challenger Keith Blocker’s 21 percent. His vote count edged Justin Leighton out of the race by just 24 votes. More than 150 votes weren’t counted because of ballot irregularities that range from non-matching signatures or were blank. Since only two people, Conor McCarthy and Suzanne Skaar, are seeking the District 7 at-large seat, they avoided a primary campaign and now automatically face off at the general election.

Incumbent David Boe opted not to seek reelection for that seat, while Mello is running unopposed for his at-large District 8 seat. Tacoma School District’s School Board election results have incumbent Catherine Ushka with a solid, 55 percent showing against her closest challenger Will Jenkins Sr., with 22 percent of the vote in what was a four-way race that included Antonio Wyatt and Robert Bearden. Andrea Cobb has 47 percent and Alisa Regala O'Hanlon has 41 of the vote for the district’s Position 4 seat.

neighborhood for young children in the education system, and rather than just accept that as fact, she developed the SOAR academy as a school that will take into account the community’s history and ideals. For years, she waited through various votes to establish charter schools and to a search for a venue. But it all paid off when she got to cut the ribbon in front of myriad Hllltop parents, all applauding for their new school option. “I stand here today because I unapologetically believe in the value, the talent, the brilliance of every single child. And after 15 years of working across the country as a leader and a teacher, I knew there was a way to put all those great things together,� Bellamy said. SOAR is just one of eight charter schools opening across Washington state this school year. The group also includes two Tacoma schools – Olympus, which had a ribbon cutting on Aug. 20, and Green Dot Destiny Middle School, which will celebrate its opening on Sept. 15. Charter schools, while public, have a flexible curriculum that relies on the founder’s vision. “Charter schools are a give and take. They have that flexibility in their school day curriculum, but in exchange they have accountability for student outcomes,� Chief Executive Officer of the Washington State Charter Schools Association Thomas Franta said. The mission of SOAR Academy is to transform the educational experience for all learners for success in and through high school, college and beyond. The core values of the school include excellence, diversity,

a foundation of arts, individual and community, a mindset of continuous growth and, of course, joy. “SOAR Academy is great because it’s dedicated to meeting the particular needs of this community,� Franta said. Though the school strives to be a rigorous learning environment, the teachers are ecstatic to work in an environment where joy is not just a side effect, but also an every day goal. “I knew I belonged here when I looked at the core values and saw ‘joy,’� teacher Rylee Terjerson said. “School was always important when there was joy in it.� Though the school currently holds only kindergarten and 1st-graders, it

will slowly expand to include K-8th grade through the coming decade. “It’s not the place that’s important, it’s what’s going to be happening inside the place. This is a chance to apply what we know, a chance to utilize flexibilities and try things differently,� chair of the SOAR Academy Board Dr. Thelma Jackson said. “It’s going to be about what’s happening in these walls, the potential is just unlimited, and that’s what’s so exciting.� SOAR Academy looks to be an important puzzle piece in the landscape of Tacoma schools, both now and as it flies into the future. “Making sure kids are prepared in the K-8 years is a critically important piece of education in Tacoma,� Franta said.

ouncing back from a 2014 championship game loss, and enduring troubles at the beginning of the season, the Puyallup Nation Kings finally found themselves hoisting the 2015 Western Washington Football Alliance trophy on Saturday night, Aug. 15. In front of the biggest WWFA crowd in two years, the Kings endured a slugfest with their crosstown rival Puget Sound Outlaws, coming up with big stops at just the right time to capture the crown in a 17-6 victory. Nearly 1,000 fans filled the stands at Sunset Chevrolet Stadium in Sumner and the atmosphere was everything one would expect out of a championship game. The Kings withstood everything the Outlaws were able to throw at them for four quarters and finished the game in Victory Formation, with quarterback Justin Southern taking two knees to run out the clock. In the end, it was two Puget Sound possessions that swung the game in the Kings favor, and kept the Outlaws from evening up the score, or more. The game started as expected, with both defenses basically hitting their counterparts square in the jaw and giving up little. Puyallup’s first possession was looking bright, as they worked the ball down to the Outlaw 35-yard line before Puget Sound hit back. Defensive tackle Dionisio Codogen sacked Southern for a seven yard loss, and followed it up with a one-yard loss while stuffing Kings’ running back Isaac Syph. Facing third-and-18, Southern dropped back to pass and was smothered by Puget Sound’s Quinn Smith. Puyallup would have to punt. A false start and 10-yard sack put a quick stop to Puget Sound’s possession, forcing the Outlaws to punt away from their own 12-yard line. Coverage was slow on the kick and Puyallup’s Donte Green took advantage of it, sprinting all the way down the sideline to the nine-yard line before being knocked out of bounds. Now with the ball, it would take the Kings just one play to get on the scoreboard. Syph took a handoff, and burst through a big hole on the right side of the line. At the one yard line, Syph collided with an Outlaw defender and two went down. However, Syph landed on top and his knees never hit the ground. While the defenders slowed, thinking the play was over; Syph popped back up and sprung into the end-zone. Puyallup led 7-0 with 6:05 remaining in the first quarter. Puyallup put the clamps on the Outlaws on the next possession, forcing them to punt after three snaps. The Kings would take over in the shadow of their own end-zone at the nine-yard line. Two false start penalties backed the ball up all the way to the two-yard line. Running back Donald McKee then busted off an 11-yard run to give the Kings a little room to breathe. On the next play, Southern connected with big receiver Ktron Barquet for a long

Things are really beginning to hop and bounce in the world of the Tacoma Stars soccer organization. Following a couple of successful promotion nights during Tacoma Rainiers games, as well as two big name player signings to the Stars’ professional squad, the action returned to the pitch at the Tacoma Soccer Center on Aug. 14 to 16 for a series of tryouts for the upcoming Major Arena Soccer League, as well as the amateur Western Indoor Soccer League. The weekend combine culminated in an exciting match on Sunday, Aug. 16 as the Stars trialists squared off against an All-Star team from the WISL, as well as a few other players that were invited to try out for the team. The Stars wore Tacoma’s white kits, while the WISL squad wore the Tacoma blue kits, and it was quite the sight as the Stars broke away from the WISL for a 7-4 victory in front an appreciative afternoon crowd on a hot and sunny day. Tacoma would roll out newly-signed Danny Waltman in goal for the first half and the former Bellarmine star and two-time professional goalkeeper of the year, immediately began barking out defensive orders to his team like a general. Waltman joins the Stars fresh off an incredible season with the Missouri Comets of the MASL, who finished the 2014-15 regular season with a perfect 20-0 record, before being upset in the semifinals. After a short feeling out process between both teams, Stars veteran Jeff Bader got the scoring started when he found teammate Vince McCluskey inside the box for a quick one-two score. The goal was setup following a free kick from just outside the box. Tacoma would lead 1-0 with 10:26 left in the first quarter and would remain as such until the period’s end. The WISL wasted no time in the second quarter as Frankie Lopez blasted a low shot just inside the right post past a diving Waltman just 23 seconds into the period. Lopez has spent time playing with both the Sounders U-23, as well as Ventura County FC. Tacoma would strike back quickly on a twominute power play goal from Chase Hanson. The team worked the ball back and forth above the top of the box, looking for the first opening

TACOMA’S CHIEN-MING WANG NAMED PCL PITCHER OF THE WEEK TACOMA, Wash. – Tacoma Rainiers right-hander ChienMing Wang has been named the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Week for Aug. 10 to 16, the league office announced today. Wang, 35, made one start during that period, tossing a nine-inning shutout at Oklahoma City on Saturday, Aug. 15. He held the Dodgers to just three hits while issuing four walks and fanning two batters. The effort marks the first shutout for Wang since May 17, 2009 while playing for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He held the Columbus Clippers scoreless on four hits in 7.0 innings of work, striking out one. Wang had not tossed a nine-inning shutout since July 28, 2006, his second season with the New York Yankees. He held the Tampa Bay Rays scoreless in that outing, while allowing just two hits, issuing a pair of walks, and striking out one. Wang is now the second Taiwanese player in PCL history to earn Pitcher of the Week honors. Las Vegas pitcher HongChih Kuo was previously named the league’s Pitcher of the Week for July 31 – Aug. 6, 2006. His performance stands as the second shutout thrown by a Rainiers pitcher this season. Right-hander Justin Germano held the El Paso Chihuahuas scoreless through nine innings on June 28, 2015 – it was his final start with Tacoma. The two strikeouts Wang recorded is the fewest collected in a nine-inning shutout thrown by a Rainiers pitcher since Brandon Morrow fanned two batters against Iowa on August 14, 2009. All tickets, group outings and suites packages for the 2015 season are available for purchase in-person at the Cheney Stadium Box Office, online at, or over the phone at (253) 752-7707. The most up-to-date news and notes about the Rainiers throughout the season can be found by following the Rainiers on Twitter (@RainiersLand) or liking the team on Facebook.

UPS HOOPS STAR SHARES BRAZIL EXPERIENCE WITH USA D-III TEAM Weeks after visiting Costa Rica with teammate Alexis Noren for the Third Annual Costa Rica Basketball Tour, Emily Sheldon traveled to Brazil with the USA-D3 Women’s Basketball Team. Below, Sheldon shares her second experience this summer competing on international hardwoods. After about two weeks of denial, I’ve finally accepted the fact that I’ve returned from Brazil and finally began unpacking all of my suitcases. The tour was amazing, and I’m so grateful for being given this opportunity to travel with the USA D-3 Women’s Basketball Team. We spent the first two days in Orlando practicing and getting to know each other, and then we took a red-eye flight to Sao Paolo, Brazil. Once we got to the hotel, we ate and rested before heading to our first game. The biggest difference from NCAA and international rules is the physicality. Referees rarely call fouls, and the Brazilians make sure to take full advantage of their leniency. We ended up losing by 10 points, but my body felt like I had just lost a boxing match. The postgame tradition was my favorite part, as the Brazilian team members would run over to us to hang out and trade gear. The girls barely spoke any English, and we definitely didn’t speak any Portuguese. Nevertheless, conversation commenced with an absurd amount of hand gestures. I gave away some Puget Sound gear and seeing how excited they were to get our clothes was the most gratifying feeling I’ve ever experienced. With each game we played, the enthusiasm to exchange words and clothes never diminished. We adjusted to the jet lag and the style of play since the first day, and we wound up winning two of our next three games. Apparently I’m a familiar face in Brazil - multiple times I was told I resemble different famous figures. The professional team first told me I look like Barbie. I’m not sure if I see the resemblance, but I’ll take it. Then another day at a local youth clinic, the kids told me that I look like reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry. That was definitely the first time I’ve been told that. I assume it’s because I have light blue eyes, or maybe it’s because I have the same - if not better - ball-handling skills as Curry. It sounds strange, but interacting with the locals was definitely my favorite part of the entire trip. It was immensely challenging to understand each other, but appreciation and excitement is recognizable in every language. Their positive attitudes were inspiring and I’ll remember those conversations for the rest of my life. The last part of the trip we took a six-hour bus ride to Rio de Janeiro. I spent the entire time looking out the window at the picture perfect views of the mountains and the villages. Everyone was outside either working, hanging out, or playing soccer. When we got to Rio, we spent the majority of the time enjoying the beach and the markets. We also got to see two incredible viewpoints of Brazil. The first was atop Sugar Loaf Mountain, which has an incredible 360-degree view of the beaches and city of Rio. The second spot was the famous Christ de Redeemer Statue, which was indescribably beautiful. As we traveled from city to city, I was given a lot of time to reflect. Not many people get the opportunity to travel, let alone play the sport they love in another country. I’ve been lucky

enough to play in two separate countries before my last season as a collegiate athlete. I chose to play Division-III basketball because of the opportunities it gives student-athletes, but I never once imagined I’d be given this experience. These trips are something I’ll never forget, and it’s an indescribable feeling to wear USA across your chest. I can’t believe this will be the last year that I get to play for the loggers, but I can’t think of a better way to start my last season representing the University of Puget Sound. HALSTEAD STEPS DOWN AS PUGET SOUND LACROSSE HEAD COACH Liana Halstead recently announced that she will not return as head coach of the Puget Sound lacrosse team for the 2016 season. Through nine seasons at the helm of the Loggers, Halstead posted a 67-51 overall record (.568). She was named the 2015 Northwest Conference Coach of the Year in the sports’ inaugural NWC season. “I couldn’t have asked for a better career at Puget Sound,” said Halstead. “Through the past nine years our staff and student-athletes have built a program that is something to be proud of. With hard work and dedication we grew to be a top team in the Pacific Northwest.” “We are very grateful for the work Liana accomplished to raise the competitive profile of our lacrosse program,” said Puget Sound Direcot of Athletics Amy Hackett. “She leaves our program in a position of strength in the Northwest Conference. We know she will continue to be a Logger.” The Loggers finished the 2015 campaign with a 10-4 record, tying for the program’s second-best win total. The Loggers achieved several notable team marks this past spring. Puget Sound’s 337 ground balls were the second-most in program history, and the defense’s 105 caused turnovers are the third-most in history. By season’s end, the Loggers placed a conference-best eight All-NWC selections. Halstead picked up her 50th career win in the Loggers’ 2014 season-opening victory at Linfield. Her first-career victory was a 22-1 triumph at Pacific in March 2007. “Through the years I have been able to find a balance between coaching, teaching, and being a mom to our daughter, Tatum,” said Halstead, who is married to Puget Sound baseball head coach Jeff Halstead. “But now I am excited about the next chapter in my life, where I can focus more on our family. I am incredibly proud of the lacrosse program’s accomplishments on and off the field, and I look forward to following the program’s future success.” SPANAWAY, PARKLAND AND PUYALLUP GIRLS VOLLEYBALL LEAGUES OFFERED Registration for the RAGE Girls Volleyball League in the Puyallup and Spanaway-Parkland communities will be held on September 12 at Puyallup High School from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and again on Sept. 19 at Franklin Pierce High School from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. League play is offered for girls in grades three to nine in both the elementary and junior high divisions.

TACOMA FIGHTERS GO 2-0 At BAttle At the BoAt 102


RISING. Tacoma native, Henry Foss alum and former Tacoma Golden Gloves Golden Boy, Marquice "Tree" Weston continued his climb up the national Cruiserweight division with a unanimous decision over David Sanchez in front of a packed Emerald Queen Casino Showroom on Saturday, Aug. 15. By Chance Pittenger Tacoma Weekly Correspondent

Roy Jones, Jr. was once asked to describe being in a fight. He talked about it being a matter of survival, a case of one’s body wanting to shut down and not take any more punches, of one’s brain sending repeated messages that the body just can’t go on with the physical exertion. He said that the hardest part of being a fighter is having the will to put all of that in the back of your mind and fight one more round. Saturday night, Aug. 15 at the Emerald Queen Casino, Battle at the Boat 102 provided several examples that showed us the truth of that description. The first bout of the evening pitted Sean Gee (2-0-0) against Alan Luk, who was making his pro debut. Gee jumped all over the first timer in the first round, and by the end of the round Luk’s left eye was showing the effects and threatening to close up. Gee further pressed his advantage and managed to knock Luk down early in the second, but as the round wore on Gee seemed to wear down. Luk was definitely in control during the second half of the round, as well as the third and fourth rounds, showing some of the mental toughness that Roy Jones spoke of. By the end of the fight it looked like it had been split evenly, with many in crowd assuming that as it was a short fight, Gee must have had the advantage due to the knock down. However, the judges saw it differently and gave it to Luk by split decision, much to the dismay of the vocal crowd. Next up was Cameron Sevilla-Rivera (5-1-0, 4 KO) facing off against Steven McKinney (1-3-0). Both fighters entered the ring looking very dry, as though they were not completely warmed up, and as is often case, Sevilla-Rivera scored an early flash knock down of McKinney. This was a sign of things to come as it was a fairly one sided fight and SevillaRivera was clearly the classier fighter. McKinney was very game and clearly had the heart and will to continue even

though it was clearly not his night, but at 2:46 of the third round, his corner had seen enough and threw in the towel. It was a good stoppage by the corner as McKinney had no chance and would have only received more punishment. The third fight had Buckley boy Jeremy McCleary (6-1-0) taking on Benny Vinson (1-3-0, 1 KO) from Tigard, OR. This seemed to be a highly anticipated fight due to the fact that Northwest boxing legend Greg Haugen was working in McCleary’s corner. McCleary was clearly the better fighter in this one, landing a huge right just before the bell in the first round that had Vinson staggered to the point that the referee had to direct him to his corner. The second and third rounds were all McCleary as he continued his beating of Vinson, landing pretty much whatever he wanted, when he wanted. The fourth and final round was interesting because Vinson came out firing as though he was tired of taking a beating and controlled the majority of the round, exposing some flaws in McCleary’s game. However, it was definitely a case of too little, too late, and McCleary easily scored a unanimous decision win. There is not much to say about the fourth match up. David Lopez, winner of just four of his previous 19 fights, against Jason Davis (13-12-2, 4 KO). Davis simply looked like he would rather be anywhere else than in the ring, and Lopez seemed more than willing to make him pay for that attitude. It was a very one sided, lackluster affair and by the end of the third round Davis quit in his corner, giving Lopez the TKO victory at 3:00 of the third round. The semi-main event was set for five rounds and featured Marquice Weston (5-0-1, 2 KO) of Tacoma battling David Sanchez (3-1-0, 1 KO) from Price, Utah. Sanchez had quite a menacing demeanor and looked as though he was chewing nails, but after a couple of rounds with Weston and his slick boxing skills, he had a much different look. Weston took over more control as the

fight went on, and although it was clear that neither fighter was going to score a knockout, it was also clear that Weston’s skills as a fighter were too much for Sanchez to handle. Much to the delight of the hometown crowd, Weston was an easy winner by unanimous decision as the fight went the full five rounds. The main event was a 10 rounder with Laatekwei Hammond (21-9-0, 14 KO) facing favorite son of Tacoma fight fans Mike Gavronski (18-1-1, 12KO). Gavronski had a decided height and reach advantage and put it to use almost immediately, controlling the fight from the outset. Gavronski put on what almost amounted to a clinic, working beautifully behind his job and scoring a knock down in the third round. He repeatedly landed hooks to the head and body using his jab to set up the other punches. Gavronski was able to do as he pleased, which led both fighters to look frustrated in the middle rounds. Hammond seemed to realize around the fifth round that his game plan was not working and was not going to work, and he seemed to run out of ideas. Gavronski seemed frustrated that he had to do all the work and carry the fight. The mental toughness Roy Jones mentioned also applies to situations like this, when a fighter has to stay sharp, try to entertain the crowd as much as possible, and take the higher road when your opponent tries to drag the fight down, as Hammond did repeatedly in the later rounds. Gavronski did more than enough to win, and did so unanimously after 10 rounds. He took a moment to address the crowd and apologize for a less than stellar fight, although it was certainly not his doing. The next Battle at the Boat 103 is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 7 at the Emerald Queen Casino. Super Fight League 44 mixed martial arts also returns to the EQC on Saturday, Sept. 26. Tickets are available at the Emerald Queen box office and any Ticketmaster location. For more information, please visit

in the WISL defense. Hanson took a pass from Troy Peterson and punched it just inside the left post for a 2-1 Stars lead with 13:19 remaining in the first half. Three minutes later, Tacoma’s Nate Ford caught up with the ball downfield, just as WISL goalkeeper Marshall Reese came out of the box to challenge for the ball. Ford got to the ball first, passed it to himself off the boards and around Reese, and tapped in a slow roller that crossed the line just before Reese caught up with the ball. Tacoma led 3-1 with 9:54 left in the first half. It would take less than 25 seconds for the WISL to counter, as Michael Rancipher of the Olytown Artesians got the ball deep in Stars territory on the wing, and wasted no time pounding a low shot just inside the posts, past Waltman and the score was now 3-2 with 9:30 left in the first half. With 2:24 left in the half, Bader would tack on another assist as he sent in a pass from the top of the box, finding Trevor McDonald, who tapped the ball into the goal and the Stars would take a 4-2 lead into halftime. Tyler Bjork from Bellingham United closed the gap for the WISL early in the third quarter, taking advantage of a jumble of players in front of the goal and slipping a shot past veteran Stars’ goalkeeper Christopher Kintz. The Stars now led 4-3 with 12:54 left in the third quarter. Three minutes later, Mark Lee would take a feed off of the wall from Joseph Carrel from the opposite side of the box and put it through for Tacoma’s fifth goal. Carrel was impressive in the match and was another camp invitee, most-recently starring for the Burlingame Dragons, 2015 champions of the Southwest Division in the national Premier Development League. The WISL found the Stars napping on the following kick-off, as it would take just 12 seconds for Andrew Escalante of the Arlington Aviators to slip a shot past an out-of-position defense. The score was now Tacoma 5-4 and would mark the final points for the WISL side as Kintz and the Stars’ defense would clamp down in the fourth quarter, but not before Kintz would strike one for goalies everywhere. With the teams on the far end of the field, Kintz received a long pass back to the Tacoma goal. Looking up at the clock, Kintz saw nine seconds left in the third, turned with the ball, and crushed a lowburner after passing the first line. The ball somehow snuck past each player and bending to the right, found a home just inside the right goal post for an unlikely and amazing goal. Tacoma would lead 6-4 to close the third quarter. With 5:11 left in the game, Tacoma’s Micah Wenzel toed a pass over the top of the box and found McCluskey on the other side. McCluskey one-timed it into the goal for the last of the scoring for the match at 7-4 Stars. “The Tacoma Stars combine gave us the opportunity to look at players from the local area that we know as well as a few players from out of town looking to make the MASL team this fall,” said Tacoma head coach Darren Sawatzky. “We are going to need to add some firepower to compete with teams out of the gate but I was happy with the work our local guys put in. This is going to be an exciting winter of Stars soccer.” The home opener for the pro Tacoma Stars is November 6 at the ShoWare Center in Kent. The 20-team MASL will be announcing its full season schedule soon. The WISL Tacoma Stars Reserves’ schedule will follow shortly after, with home games at the Tacoma Soccer Center.

bomb down the sideline and a 51-yard gain all the way down to the 35-yard line of the Outlaws. Puyallup would work the ball down to the 21-yard line, but the Outlaw defense stiffened and forced a 38-yard field goal attempt by Puyallup’s Nick Rhodes. The right-footer’s kick sneaked just inside the right upright and Puyallup now held a 10-0 lead with eight seconds remaining in the first quarter. The Outlaws managed a first down on their next possession before being forced to punt again. It was clear that the Kings’ defense wasn’t going to be giving away much, if any, yardage to Puget Sound. The defensive line was pushing blockers back, the linebackers were swarming and the defensive backfield had the field on lockdown past 10 yards. The Kings looked like they were bound for the scoreboard again on the next drive, as they pushed the ball down to the Outlaw 23-yard line. Following a hands to the face penalty, the Kings were backed up to the 39-yard line and needed to air it out. Southern’s pass was intercepted in the end-zone on a flying grab by Puget Sound’s Marques Wise. Puget Sound began finding some openings in the Kings’ defense on their next possession, and things were looking promising as they passed midfield. A false start, and two sacks wiped out hopes of scoring on the drive and the Outlaws were forced to punt again following their 14-play drive. Puyallup was unable to get anything going on the ensuing possession, after Southern missed out on a 40-yard connection downfield to receiver Mychal Hutcherson. The Kings would punt the ball away with 1:01 left on the clock in the first half. Starting at their own 31-yard line, the Outlaws managed to put together a couple of nice gains, pushing them down to the Puyallup 36-yard line. With 21 seconds left, Outlaw quarterback Leon Johnson was hounded by Puyallup defenders and tried to keep the play alive, instead of throwing the ball out of bounds. The 12-yard loss pushed the Outlaws back to the Puyallup 48-yard line. With time running out on the next play, Johnson launched the ball downfield and drew a pass interference penalty on the Kings. With four seconds left in the half, the Outlaws Nathan Koprek lined up for a 32-yard field goal. The snap and kick were clean, but Puyallup’s Anthony Cambe was able to get a few fingers on the ball and the kick fell short and the first half was in the books. On the opening drive of the second half, Puget Sound would put together their

best drive of the game. Starting at their own 24-yard line, the Outlaws worked the ball down to the Kings’ 45-yard line. Following another Puyallup pass interference at the nine-yard line, it looked like Puget Sound was going to tighten up the score. Instead, it was Puyallup’s defense that tightened up after Puget Sound pushed the ball to the four-yard line. Johnson’s fourth and goal pass into the end-zone fell incomplete and the Outlaws best offensive scoring chance of the game was turned away. Puyallup would chew up over eight minutes on their next drive, as they put together a 14-play, 96-yard backbreaking drive. Facing fourth and goal from the three-yard line, Southern rolled to his right, with the ball high, looking like he might pass. He then tucked the ball under his arm at the three-yard line and zipped across the goal line, untouched until he had already entered the end-zone. Puyallup now led 17-0 with 51 seconds left in the third quarter. The Outlaws were able to work the ball down to the Puyallup 38-yard line on the next possession, but a sack by Puyallup’s Demetrius Moore backed them up to the 46-yard line and forced Puget Sound to punt again. The sack was the 20th on the season for Moore. The Kings began the next drive at their own six-yard line and were able to work it out to the 20-yard line before Southern was intercepted by Jeff Young on a deep pass down the middle that came up just a couple of yards short. Puget Sound would go nowhere on the next possession, as Puyallup’s Alex Moaalii sacked Johnson twice and the Outlaws were forced to punt again. Puyallup began eating up more clock on their next drive and worked the ball down to the Outlaws 29-yard line at the two-minute warning. Instead of running out the clock, Puyallup would air it out just once for some insurance points, but the ball was tipped and intercepted by Thomas Mack at the 19-yard line. Mack zipped up the center of the field, before heading toward the sideline where he would follow some tremendous blocks all the way to the end-zone. The Kings lead was trimmed to 17-6 following an incompletion in the end-zone on the twopoint conversion. On the following kick-off, Koprek put a foot on a good looking onside kick, but the ball skipped out of bounds a couple of yard before travelling the required 10-yards. Two seven-yard runs by Syph and two knees by Southern ended the game and the celebration was on for the Puyallup Nation Kings faithful. Puyallup finished the season 9-2, while the Outlaws finished out their most successful season ever at 8-3.

You could win! Each night, KeyBank will be giving Rainiers fans something special, including contests with prizes like $100 cash cards, a Leavenworth Staycation or a premium batting practice at Cheney Stadium.

PUYALLUP TRIBAL IMPACT Supporting the Economic Growth of Our Community

State, local and Puyallup tribal officials held a groundbreaking ceremony on Feb. 18, 2015 for the next Interstate 5 project in Tacoma that will create a new bridge over the Puyallup River and reconstruct the I-5/State Route-167 interchange, commuter lanes and increase access to tribal properties. Pictured here are (left to right): Puyallup tribal member David Duenas; State Representative Hans Zeiger (R-25); Tacoma Deputy Mayor David Boe; Puyallup Tribal Chairman Bill Sterud; State Secretary of Transportation Lynn Peterson; Hamilton Construction President Scott Williams; WSDOT Olympic Region Administrator Kevin Dayton; and Kierra Phifer with U.S. Senator Patty Murray’s office.

Considered among the most urban of Native American tribes, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians has grown to be a critical component of the South Sound economy. As Pierce County’s sixth largest employer, a donor to a broad range of charitable organizations, and a major funder of housing, roads, education and environmental projects, the Puyallup Tribe stands as a model for taking care

of not only its own membership but sharing its wealth among the broader community as well. The Puyallup Tribe is one of the largest employers in Pierce County. With a payroll of more than 3,200 people that work in the Tribe’s businesses, government, economic development corporation, school, and health and housing authorities — approximately 70 percent

of whom are non-Native — employees enjoy competitive wages and benefits. In 2013, the Tribe spent more than $461 million. This spending supports communities by providing good wages and generous benefits to individuals, and through purchases of goods and services from local suppliers, vendors, contractors, construction companies and more. From sponsoring countless local

charities, non-profit organizations, social welfare projects and events that may otherwise suffer or cease to exist, to protecting the environment, funding crime prevention, city improvement projects and healthcare, the Tribe maintains its commitment to honoring its welldeserved reputation as “the generous people,” a reflection of the meaning of the Tribe’s very name “Puyallup.”

TRIBE WORKS TO RESTORE PUGET SOUND URBAN STREAMS Clarks Creek may provide clues to Puget Sound restoration The Puyallup Tribe of Indians is working to decrease sediment in Clarks Creek, an important salmon tributary to the Puyallup River. “Clarks Creek is important because it supports several different species of salmon, some listed under the federal Endangered Species Act,” said Char Naylor, water quality program manager for the Tribe. Clarks Creek also supports the highest salmon spawning densities in the Puyallup watershed as well as the most significant number and variety of spawning salmon within a city limits in the watershed. “It’s also important because it can be an example of how we can restore hundreds of small urban streams in Puget Sound,” Naylor said. The problems facing the Clarks Creek watershed are endemic to most Puget Sound lowland streams. The principal non-point pollutants causing degradation are excessive sediment, nuisance weed growth, nutrient enrichment and excessive bacteria loading. “If we can tackle these issues in Clarks Creek, we can show other Puget Sound communities how to heal their streams,” Naylor said. The Tribe is leading a regional effort to clean up the creek by reducing the amount of sediment flowing into it. Too much sediment in a stream drives down salmon productivity because it impacts the fish’s ability to find clean spawning gravel in which to spawn or rear. The goal of the project is to reduce sediment loads by half and nutrient and bacteria by a third by lowering flows and stabilizing banks to reduce channel erosion. The Tribe recently finished a two-year study of sediment sources throughout Clarks Creek. The study found that if 23 major sources of sediment were repaired, over 50 percent of the creek’s sediment problem would go away. Yet by doing just the top eight bank stabilization projects, a huge amount of sediment can be removed from the stream very cost-effectively. The tribe is putting together plans to restore two of those major sources of sediment in the creek. The tribal projects This photograph reveals deep incision and erosion shown in the upper portion of the Clarks Creek watershed (where nearby homes are located). would stabilize the banks of two Clarks Creek tributaries. “We would literally be changing the shapes of their banks and channels, adding gravel and planting vegetation along their banks,” neighborhoods of the city of Puyallup before joining the Puyallup River. Naylor said. Because it is largely spring-fed, the creek has a consistent level of water Other sorts of projects suggested by the study include stormwater retthroughout the year, making it great rearing habitat for juvenile salmon. rofits, low impact development, and stormwater detention ponds. The Puyallup Tribe also operates a chinook hatchery on the creek.

CANNABIS CULTURE. The Northwest Cannabis Classic kicked off in Anchorage,

Alaska in May. Tacoma-based promoters Cory and Kendra Wray will hold the two-day event at the Tacoma Armory on Aug. 29 and 30 followed by the finale in Portland in November. By Ernest A. Jasmin


undreds of thousands of marijuana aficionados flocked to Seattle’s Myrtle Edwards Park earlier this month for the nation’s largest pot advocacy event, Seattle Hempfest. On Aug. 29 and 30, Tacoma will get a cannabis-themed event of its own as South Sound smokers head to the venerable Tacoma Armory for the Northwest Cannabis Classic. That amounts to two days of speakers, vendors and music, and a competition to crown the region’s best growers. Tacoma based promoters Cory and Kendra Wray have already staged the event in Alaska, where voters went to the polls to legalize pot in November, and they hope to grow it into an annual happening. Recently, we caught up with Cory Wray to get a better idea of what to expect next weekend. Tacoma Weekly: Is this the first year that you’ve done this? Wray: Yeah, it’s the first year in Tacoma that we’re doing it. We began up in Alaska in May. The tour kicked off there, had a really good showing. Tacoma is the second leg of the tour. Then it’ll wrap up in Portland in November. TW: So tell me, what is it all about? Wray: At its core, it’s educational in nature. We have a lot of internationally renowned cultivators that come from all over the country, specifically Jorge Cervantes. He’s widely popular within the cannabis community, and he’s one of our keynote speakers. We also have a guy named Jeff Lowenfels [who] writes a gardening column up in Alaska. He’s written many books on growing. His most popular book is probably “Teaming with Microbes” (Timber Press, $18.97). It’s really the organic grower’s bible. He’s also a lawyer … He wrote part of the Irwin Ravin decision versus Alaska when they legalized marijuana. (In 1975, The Alaska Supreme ruled that the Alaska Constitution’s right to privacy protects the ability to use and possess small amounts of marijuana.) Another guy, Tom Alexander, he was the one who pretty much got Jorge Cervantes and Ed Rosenthal into growing marijuana and writing books. So he’s kind of like the founding father of the whole movement. He’s going to be sharing his stories. He was busted back in 1979 by the DEA in a huge operation. So he’s going to be able to share

some context in terms of that experience versus where we are today, where we can actually have an event like this in Tacoma, in the open. Other people we have is radical Russ Belville. He’ll talk about marijuana and the Bill of Rights. TW: Who is your keynote speaker? Wray: Our keynote is Jorge Cervantes. That’s the one everybody knows. He has hundreds of thousands of followers on Facebook. … I’m sure a lot of people have the “Marijuana Grower’s Bible” (officially titled “Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/ Outdoor Medical Grower’s Bible”). But he’s not the draw. The draw is this cannabis event where we also have micro lounges going on. We’ll have food trucks there. We’ve got music. We’ve got a cannabis awards show going on. For the last two weeks, we’ve been having a cannabis competition, if you will. We’ve gathered samples from the best growers in the state of Washington, and we’ve invited judges to sample all these entries. We give them nearly three weeks to do all this sampling so they can critique each grower’s product. Then what we do is ... aggregate the score. [We’ll] have a cannabis award show where we have these really awesome trophies that we award to the winners of best indica, best sativa, best hybrid, best concentrate and best edible. It’s all local growers in the state of Washington. TW: From what I understand, you can’t partake at an event like this. Wray: Technically, yes, that’s correct. TW: How many people are you expecting to come out? Wray: We expect anywhere between 4,0005,000 people. We’re hoping for a pretty good turnout. Marijuana’s a very social thing. It’s great to have a social event where people can come together. They can learn about growing. They can learn about their rights. They can learn about what’s new in the marketplace. They can learn about the movers and the shakers in the industry. They can – you know – all be together talking about similar stories, sharing similar passions. I think that’s really cool.

Northwest Cannabis Classic Noon to 8 p.m. Aug. 29, noon to 6 p.m. Aug. 30 Tacoma Armory, 715 S. 11th St. $30 to $35 in advance, $40 day of show, VIP and weekend passes available

100 YEARS ON University of Puget Sound celebrates a century of Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and Billy Strayhorn

What a year it was. In 1915, three unforgettable stars of the American jazz scene were born: legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday; Ol’ Blue Eyes headliner Frank Sinatra; and Duke Ellington Band composer and arranger Billy Strayhorn. To celebrate the three remarkable artists – whose music dazzled millions of listeners then and stirs millions more today – University of Puget Sound’s School of Music will hold a jazz Jacobsen concert titled “A Centennial Celebration of Billy Strayhorn, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra.” The single performance will take place at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 11, in Schneebeck Concert Hall on campus. Ticket information is below. The special centenary concert has been arranged by Professor of Music Theory and Composition Rob Hutchinson and his wife, Director of Vocal Studies Dawn Padula. Hutchinson said Padula has previously sung some of his classical compositions for mezzosoprano, but this year they wanted to do something a little different and perform together. “Since she performs jazz and musical theater regularly, in addition to opera, I proposed this concert, celebrating jazz greats who were born in 1915,” Hutchinson said. “This jazz Jacobsen allows us to collaborate as performing musicians, since I’ll be playing double bass. We’ll even have one tune that we’ll perform as a duet.” Also on stage will be Tracy Knoop, saxophone;

CROWD FAVORITES. Popular sports mascots Blitz of the Seattle Seahawks and Rhubarb of the Tacoma Rainiers as well as Rodney Raccoon will be on hand at the Go Green Games to help teach children about conservation, the environment and safety Aug. 29.

Local kids will play games that teach them about conservation, the environment and safety during the inaugural Go Green Games, which will be held from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 29, at Meridian Habitat Park and Community Center, 14422 Meridian Ave. E., in Puyallup. “What we’re doing is putting on the event to, first of all, have a lot of fun and educate them about the environment at the same time,” said J.D. Davis, president of Way Out Kids, which is putting on the event with Waste Connections, Inc. There will be bounce houses, garbage truck demonstrations, games, music and food at this family event, which is

aimed at teaching elementary school age kids. One of the games kids will play is the Salmon Olympics. “What they’ll do is take the kids through a set of obstacles demonstrating how salmon have to make it upstream,” Davis said. Organizers say the goal of the event is to educate youth on how their activities impact Puget Sound’s water quality, how their behaviors contribute to polluted runoff and learning the correct way to recycle. Helping drive home the message will be Rodney Raccoon, Tacoma Rainiers mascot Rhubarb and Blitz, the Seattle Seahawks mascot. “If they could take one thing away,” Davis said, “I would

say they have to learn to protect to their environment, care about their environment and know that without this environment they go into the future. So if we teach the young now about different ways they can help protect it, hopefully they’ll take it into their adulthood and do better than we have.” Organizers are expecting 700 to 1,000 to turn out to the event next weekend. For further details, call (253) 6271899. Ernest Jasmin, Tacoma Weekly

WITCHY WOMAN HOROSCOPES Christina Wheeler has been studying astrology for the past 22 years. She writes, creates, laughs too loud, and owns a store called The Nearsighted Narwhal in Tacoma, WA. If you ever want to chew the fat about astrology, contact her at ARIES (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19) This will be an intensely emotional time for you for one reason or another, very possibly because of love or lack thereof. Whatever the reason, sometimes you have to burn everything down to start anew. Even after volcanic eruptions, the devastation allows for the cultivation of new life. Stand in the face of your consequences and admit your role. You can build it back up. Don’t give up.

LIBRA (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22) Your security may have been swept out from underneath you like a rug and now it’s time to reassess and come up with a plan. The best parts of you are still there. Use your quick thinking and strategic planning to create a foolproof plan to solely rely on yourself and you’ll never be disappointed. Grab at any chance of regeneration you can and don’t feel guilty about being cutthroat. Worry about yourself, for once.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20) Intense introspection and finding some kind of sanctuary away from your problems is what’s on your plate this week. If not you personally, prepare to take on the role of emotional caregiver to someone you love. Whoever it is, realize that life is a wheel, constantly moving. Sometimes you’re on top, sometimes you’re on the bottom. There’s always a brighter tomorrow somewhere.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) You may be feeling rather exposed. Your normally calm exterior may have extreme feelings bubbling just underneath the surface and people will notice. Accept help when you need it, Scorpio. Let people in so that you can be the best version of yourself possible. You always have choices in this life, even if sometimes it doesn’t feel like it. You always have a choice. Don’t forget that.

GEMINI (May 21 – Jun. 20) You may fall into full-on hermit mode this week. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Finding comfort in your home or in menial tasks gives you the time and space to clear your mind after you’ve fully engaged in intense self-analysis. Roll your sleeves up and get busy fixing something, anything. The more solitude and busyness you can get, the better it is for your soul.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) Deep feelings and past dealings are going to be laid all out on the table. You will be going through a metaphorical cleaning of the attic, so to speak. Clear the dust of past hurts away by changing your perspective on what has happened in your life. Promise yourself that your eyes are on the prize of regeneration and stand in the powerful figure of a new you. No apologies.

CANCER (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22) It’s nothing new for you to feel intense emotions and want to hide away from the world in your shell until you feel fully healed. The hardest shells protect the most vulnerable parts of us. They are there for a reason. Identify your shell and your comfort. Is it a person? Is it a bed tent? Is it to be creative? Make a mental list of all your self-care techniques and employ them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) You will become the master of determining your own needs this week. Needing alone time will be in the cards, but also feeling cherished and supported by your peer group is there for your taking. Don’t make a commitment more than a day in advance, as your moods will be changing rapidly and it’s important at this time that you take care of yourself first. Lean in to your intuition now.

LEO (Jul. 23 – Aug. 22) A heightened sense of introspection and solitude might be the plan for the week, or at least the beginning. Dealing with matters of life and death and finding where you belong in the middle will consume your thoughts. Regeneration is also in the cards for you so don’t succumb to too many fatalistic thoughts. Promise yourself that you’ll live each day for the fullest and there will never be regrets.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Thinking deeply about how the public feels about you and developing a plan for benefiting humanity as much as you can in this lifetime could be on your mind at this time. Following your heart to where you feel you can do the most good can be therapeutic and ultimately lead you to your life purpose, if you haven’t already found it. Keep your mind open and let the possibilities in.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22) Look for your deepest emotional needs to be met through communications with people who fully understand you and by traveling. It doesn’t even have to be travel to far away places. It can just be the time in your car, on your bike, or on the bus that gives you that time you need to push your reset button. Engage in meaningful conversations and fully take in the insight. Learn about yourself through others’ eyes.

PISCES (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20) Getting stuck in a textbook or fully throwing yourself into learning something new is highly likely at this time. There may even be grandiose plans for a future trip abroad. Whatever it is that’s tickling your fancy at this time is exactly what you need from life right now. Allow it to happen and bask in the excitement and promise of infinite knowledge and experiences. The world is your oyster.

Meet Frankie—such a cutie! Little Frankie is a Papillon mix, who, like his other toy spaniel brethren, is all energy. When outside his kennel, Frankie is an absolute extrovert, prancing and darting to get a better look at his surroundings. He isn’t quite at the lap dog stage yet, though, rendered timid and shy, most likely from his time as a stray. Frankie will benefit from obedience classes, as he does not easily walk on leash. Never fear, though. The Papillon breeds tends to be highly trainable. All this charmer really needs is a patient family, preferably with all adults or older kids, to come out of his shell and truly shine. Help Frankie get his happily ever after. #A500214
