Pawnshop ordinance revised by city council by John Fannin
With a business owner expressing interest in setting up a pawnshop in Sunnyside, the city council last night, Monday, approved an update to a 50-year-old ordinance already on the books. According to a report prepared by Police Chief Ed Radder, Sunnyside has had pawnshops in the past and for awhile had two. That was several years ago, though, and Radder brought before council last night recommendations to bring the city’s pawnshop ordinance into the 21st century. One of the changes is that prospective pawnshop owners will need to obtain their business license through city hall. The original ordinance, adopted in 1956, stipulated the city council received pawnshop applications. Of particular concern is the cost to the city to monitor pawnshop activities. Radder noted the existing ordinance called for an annual licensing fee of $100. That’s a problem, though, in
that he says it doesn’t nearly cover the amount of time police department employees have to spend dealing with pawn shop transactions. Calling the existing code “antiquated,” Radder proposed the revised pawnshop code instead charge an annual fee of $250 to better reflect the cost to the city. That cost to Sunnyside police includes checking to see if items brought to the pawn shop are stolen, as well as tracking and recovery of stolen items that are sold to the shop. Radder said the police department will receive a list of transactions daily from the pawnshop under the new law, instead of once a week as was the case under the old ordinance. Council approved the pawnshop ordinance changes, but with the proviso that the annual fee be re-evaluated after six months to make sure it is adequate for the city’s costs John Fannin/Daily Sun News in supervising the pawnshop. The Sunnyside City Council meeting last night, Monday, marked a time of new beginnings as (L-R) City Manager - John Fannin can be reached Mark Gervasi, Battalion Chief Bill Harris and Police Officer Mike Ausland were sworn into office by Mayor Jim Reat 509-837-4500 or by e-mail stucci. Gervasi started his post for Sunnyside yesterday, Harris was recently promoted and Ausland started work at email@example.com for the Sunnyside Police Department on Sept. 1.
City of Sunnyside ordered to pay attorney fees by Corey Russell
The city of Sunnyside was ordered to pay attorney fees for a woman when she took the city to court to retrieve items seized by police. Lorena Contreras successfully sued the city for wrongfully seizing a BMW vehicle and cash from her son’s father. The father, Jesus Jaime Torres, was alleged to have driven
to Sunnyside to buy drugs in 2005. At a trailer in Sunnyside Torres was shot and killed, as well as several other people. Police think he was there to buy drugs. Five kilos of fake cocaine were found in the house as well as approximately $57,000 in cash, which is about what five kilos of cocaine sold for in 2005. Police seized the cash found in the home, Torres’ vehicle and an additional $9,000 they found on his body. Contreras

COPS program suggested for S’side
U.S. Senate hopeful Dino Rossi, who’ll be on the General Election ballot this November in the race for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Sen. Patty Murray, converses yesterday with Colleen Goulet, head of the imaging department at Sunnyside Community Hospital. Rossi made stops at several medical facilities on his trip to the Yakima Valley on Monday. He is urging Sen. Murray to support a common sense proposal to eliminate what he describes as onerous requirements on small businesses mandated by the recently passed health care bill in Washington D.C. According to Rossi, “Washingtonians are starting to understand just what the health care bill Sen. Murray helped push through the Senate is going to do to them, and the more they learn, the less they like it.”
sued to get all of the money and the vehicle back. Her attorney, Todd Harms of Richland, said Contreras lost in her attempt to retrieve all of the cash and vehicle in a decision handed down in Sunnyside Municipal Court, but won the vehicle back and the $9,000 found in Torres’ pocket in Yakima Superior Court. The judge ruled that the $57,000 probably was Torres’ and that he went to Sunnyside to buy

The city of Sunnyside was encouraged last night to pursue a program that helps neighborhoods police themselves. The encouragement Monday night came from Christy Hamilton, who directs a Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program for the city of Spokane. She said Spokane has 300 volunteers on board with the program and 13 neighborhood “COPS shops” in locations ranging from downtown storefronts to a local high school. Hamilton says the volunteers who operate the COPS shops aren’t police officers, but are trained and available to receive complaints or reports that citizens bring or phone into the location. A police officer is assigned to each of the COPS shops, and is given the reports for follow-up contact with victims. Hamilton emphasized that the shops don’t take the place of 911 and victims are encouraged to still call the emergency number even if they go to a COPS shop. The neighborhood shops are helpful, too, in that Hamilton see “COPS program” back page

Grandview school directors ‘GLAD’ new program in place by Emma Fierro
GRANDVIEW – “Wonderful, smart board members deciding gleefully around the table,” members of the Grandview School Board sang in unison at yesterday’s board meeting. But this was not choir practice for board members, it was an English lesson taught by GLAD coach Susie Thorpe. Thorpe, who was hired as a GLAD coach by board members last night, took a moment to teach the Grandview Board of Directors a little bit about the program. GLAD stands for Guided Language Acquisition Design, explained Thorpe. She taught the board members a quick lesson on parts of a sentence, having them come up with verbs, adverbs, adjectives and prepositions. Thorpe then took their suggestions and created the sentence, “Wonderful, smart board members deciding gleefully around the table,” and sang it to the tune of ‘The
Hearing examiner contract late, but approved The Sunnyside City Council last night, Monday, approved a contract with Gary Cuillier to again provide hearing examiner services for the city. Sunnyside first contracted with Cuillier back in 2006 when the city did away with the Board of Adjustment. Cuillier’s three-year contract expired last year and city staff were unaware of that status until recently when two hearings were scheduled for later this month. The contract approved last night is for another three years and pays Cuillier $140 per hour for each case he hears, and $70 per hour for travel time from his office in Yakima. Councilman Don Vlieger took city staff to task for presenting Cuillier’s new contract so late. “Get it here on time,” he said of future contract dealings.
Farmer in the Dell.’ This, Thorpe said, is an example of how GLAD works. Using music, as Thorpe did with the board members, and various other techniques, GLAD looks to teach students through active participation. Thorpe explained that GLAD utilizes a student’s prior knowledge, patterning and organization to teach students. She also emphasized that students learn to answer that all important question,” What made you think that?” GLAD, Thorpe said, teaches to the highest. “We don’t dumb down any work,” she reported. It’s a way of scaffolding to kids, she continued. Even those who are not quite understanding something are given the tools to reach the top. Thorpe, who is a tier 3 GLAD trainer, appeared before the board to explain what GLAD has been doing in the schools. The program started gradually at the Grandview School District, but Thorpe has now
trained 32 teachers in the district to teach using GLAD and now has two resource centers in operation. The program was started by two California English Language Learning teachers, but Thorpe insists its use reaches far beyond students. “We are all English language learners,” she explained. Thorpe reported that students have responded well to the unique style of learning. She explained they had recently created a song and dance about energy to Justin Bieber’s song, “Baby.” Students could be seen on the playground, she said, singing and dancing to their new song. The school board was thrilled to hear Thorpe’s presentation and approved a motion to send her to a GLAD training seminar in Costa Mesa, Calif. If Thorpe completes the training, she will become a tier 4 trainer and this will open up a great opportunity

sunnyside city council briefs job, the Sunnyside City Council was advised last night, Monday, that there will be a retreat in the near future. Mayor Jim Restucci said he and Gervasi spoke this past weekend about holding a day-long “strategic planning retreat” as soon as possible. Restucci said the retreat, which has not yet been scheduled, will be held outside the Sunnyside city limits to help council and Gervasi better focus on the work to be done at the retreat.
Council sub-committees finally formed
With just three full months left in 2010, Sunnyside City Council members finally have their sub-committee assignments for the year. Mayor Jim Restucci had proposed the sub-committees several weeks ago, but council needed more time to discuss how each would be organized. The strategy approved last night, Monday, has each of the sub-committees led by rotating facilitators and reporters to share with council what is discussed. The sub-committee assignments are: Tom Gehlen – Finance/ With City Manager Mark administrative service and Gervasi just starting on the public works.
Theresa Hancock – Finance/ administrative services. Don Vlieger – Finance/ administrative services and public safety. Mike Farmer – Public safety and public works. Paul Garcia – Public safety. Nick Paulakis – Public works.
Annexation process begins for Midvale Road property The Sunnyside City Council last night, Monday, gave thumbs up to accept a property owner’s intention to annex his property into the city limits. The notice of intention is just the first step in a process that must first go before the planning commission for consideration. The landowner submitting the petition is Darrell
Downing, who would like his nearly six-acre parcel at 770 and 780 Midvale Road annexed into Sunnyside. According to a report Senior Planner Jamey Ayling provided to council, Downing runs a construction business, storage yard and has a home on the parcel. Those uses would apparently be okay if or when Downing’s land is brought into the city. Council, however, is concerned about other properties previously annexed into the city in the Midvale Road area. While approving the resolution to begin annexation proceedings with Downing, council directed staff to fine tune the city’s existing zoning ordinances. Mayor Jim Restucci noted, for example, that those seeking to have their land annexed into the city don’t have to indicate what they’ll use their land for if they are annexed. “The process is broken,” Restucci said later.
g’view school board briefs Board discusses School board Darrell Smith approves new hires,volunteers scholarship GRANDVIEW – Monday, Sept. 13, the Grandview School Board approved the hiring of Susie Thorpe as a Guided Language Acquisition Design (GLAD) coach for the 2010-11 School year.

Meanwhile, the district’s athletic program will get four new volunteers. Carlos Rodriguez will assist with middle school softball, along with Ashley VanTress and Mark Ware. Ware will also work with the high school softball program. Carlos Barbosa will assist with the high school soccer program.

GRANDVIEW – The Grandview School Board discussed criteria and distribution of the funds left by former superintendant Darrell Smith for student scholarships. It was approved by the board that the district would use only 25 percent of the profit from the money’s investment in order to allow the scholarship to grow for future students. Other details on the scholarship are still under discussion. Though the board of directors has agreed to disperse the money through Dollars for Scholars, criteria for the scholarships and the number of scholarships is still under consideration.

Sunnyside Community Hospital business office at new site by Jennie McGhan
Sunnyside Community Hospital has moved its business office. The move from the corner of South Ninth Street and East Franklin Avenue to a location three blocks away at South Ninth Street and East Decatur Avenue was a spur of the moment decision as an opportunity presented itself, according to Chief Financial Officer Martha Rodriguez. She and Patient Financial Services Manager Molly Schutt said the former location wasn’t ideal for those working there. The move took place Monday, Aug. 23. The former home of the business office was a twostory historical site formerly occupied by the Bureau of Reclamation. The air condi-
tioning there was ineffective and communications between staff members was sometimes difficult. At the new location, 326 South Ninth Street, staff are all on a single floor. They are able to work side-by-side, alleviating communication hindrances. What hindered the staff from ease of communication, said Schutt, was the separation of offices. Many office spaces within the older building were made for one occupant, making staff members leave one space to confer with a co-worker in another space when necessary. The clinic billing employees, known as financial counselors, were once housed in office space on East Lincoln Avenue. When they moved to the billing of-
fices, those employees were located in an obscure space within the building. “They had to leave their computer to communicate with patients and travel back to the computer to access information for the patient,” said Schutt. With the new office space, those financial counselors can meet a patient in the front office and take the patient to a space where they can speak confidentially. The counselor can also access the patient’s records more easily. The new office, too, provides handicapped patients ease of access. There is a ramp for wheelchair access and handicap parking, Schutt said. Jennie McGhan/Daily Sun News “The parking is also off- Sunnyside Community Hospital’s business office is now located on the corner of street,” she pointed out, South Ninth Street and East Decatur Avenue.

BIMORE Store in Sunnyside aims to save shoppers money by Corey Russell
The newest store in Sunnyside is aiming to get Sunnyside residents to spend less while still receiving the quality they expect on items such as kitchen wares, electronics, clothing apparel and food. The BIMORE Store opened in the Mid-Valley Mall in Sunnyside in early September. “We believe we can save the average consumer hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a year, by offering every day consumer goods at deep discounts to the average and the discriminate customer,” said BIMORE co-founder and vice president Ralph Miyazono. Beverly Katzfey, manager of the Sunnyside location, said the store employs 14 employees and is just one of two stores on the east side of the Cascades. The

BIMORE buys items from businesses that are in the process of liquidation. The products are purchased at deep discounts and then turned around and

Workers needed to fill fair jobs YAKIMA - Each year the Central Washington State Fair employs hundreds of Yakima Valley residents during the 10-day event. And this year is no exception. Fair officials are again looking for people to fill job openings in admissions, concessions, security and in fairgrounds maintenance and upkeep during this year’s fair. Fair officials, in association with WorkSource, will be taking applications and conducting interviews at a special WorkSource job tent that will be set up at the Yakima fairgrounds on Friday, Sept. 17, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The tent will be located at the Gate 3 entrance at State Fair Park on Fair Avenue about a block north of Nob Hill Blvd.
After that the WorkSource tent will be open and taking applications from Sept. 20 through Oct. 3. For more information on hours of the Worksource job tent go to
the fair’s website at fairfun. com. This year’s Central Washington State Fair runs from Sept. 24 through Oct. 3 in Yakima.

clude televisions, DVD players, furniture, bedding, home domestics, party supplies, shoes, clothing, food and household items. Just about everything. Katzfey said the store offers promotions besides the deeply discounted prices. She said Tuesdays will be senior day. Anyone 55 and over will receive an additional 10 percent off the sales price. She said the store will participate in teeshirt Thursdays, as well. Customers can purchase a tee-shirt for $5 and if they wear it on Thursday’s to the store, they will receive 10 percent off their purchase price. It’s a way for the store to honor their customers, she said. Katzfey said BIMORE decided to come to Sunnyside when the Dollar Store in the Mid-Valley Mall closed. ‑ Corey Russell can be contacted at 509-837-4500, or email CRussell@DailySunNews.com

Hillcrest employee passes 25-year milestone by Corey Russell
Gale Olson remembers making his decision to become a licensed practical nurse. He had just graduated from Sunnyside High School and was working as an orderly. He attended YVCC and studied to become a LPN. Twentyfive years later, Olson is still going strong. He has been with Eagle Healthcare for 25 years now, but has only been at Hillcrest Manor & Rehabilitation Center in Sunnyside. Hillcrest is owned by Eagle Healthcare. “It’s a good place to work,” Olson said. “I enjoy the staff and the elders.” Olson started work at Sunny Haven in Sunnyside
and also worked at Walnut Grove near Prosser before he came to Hillcrest. Both Sunny Haven and Walnut Grove were owned by Eagle Healthcare. As a LPN Olson said his job is to take care of the elder’s needs. He is a medication nurse as well as a treatment nurse. He explained that a medication nurse gives out medications. Olson will prepare and administer medications to the elders, sometimes by mouth and sometimes by injections. As a treatment nurse Olson also takes care of any wounds the elders might have, anything physical or outside of the body. He also must deal with family members a lot of the
time, as well. He gives them support and answers any questions they might have. If the elders allow it, Olson even discusses what medications they are taking with family members. He likes his job, which should come as no surprise after learning Olson has been at it for 25 years. “I like dealing with the patients and their family members,” he said. “Sometimes it’s a lot of P.R. work and it can be challenging sometimes, but otherwise it’s pretty good. “There is a reward effect that comes with that,” he added. “You really do feel good.” One thing Olson likes about working at Hillcrest Manor is the Eden concept
on their ability to receive a college education, but college is expensive. In fact, according to the College Board, for the 2009–2010 school year, the average cost (tuition, fees, room and board) for an instate student for one year at a public, four-year school was more than $15,000, while a student at a private, four-year school paid, on average, more
than $35,000. Furthermore, in recent years, college costs have risen considerably faster than the general inflation rate, so if your grandchildren are still quite young, their college bills may easily eclipse the numbers shown above. Fortunately, if you want to help your grandchildren pay for college, you have some good savings vehicles to choose from, including the following: • 529 savings plan — A 529 savings plan allows you to put money in specific investments, managed by an investment professional. You can gift $13,000 per year to each grandchild without incurring gift taxes. All withdrawals from a 529 savings plan will be free from federal income taxes, as long as the money is used for the beneficiary’s qualified college or graduate school expenses. (Withdrawals for expenses other than qualified education expenditures may be subject to federal and state taxes, plus a 10% penalty.) Also, if you participate in your own state’s 529 savings plan, your contributions may be eligible for a state tax deduction or credit. • Coverdell Education Savings Account — Depending on your income level, you can contribute up to $2,000 annu-
applied there. This is where the elders make decisions for themselves and then the staff in turn works around those decisions. The staff approach the Eden concept as part as a team effort. Mary Arthur, administrator at Hillcrest Manor, says Olson is very elder centered. “He’s very detailed and knows the diagnosis of the elders and the treatments they need,” she said. “He never lets up on providing quality care.” ‑ Corey Russell can be contacted at 509-837-4500

Lady Grizzlies come away with one tie in five matches YAKIMA – The Sunnyside High School volleyball team managed a split with East Valley High School at the SunDome Invite this past Saturday but lost all of its other four matches the team played. The Lady Grizzlies lost the first set 25-17 but rallied to take the second set 25-23 to force the tie against East Valley. Pool play only got worse for Sunnyside. Sunnyside lost to Richland 25-21, 25-10, and then lost 25-15, 25-9 to Holy Names Academy. The Lady Grizzlies had two matches in bracket play. They lost to Lake Wood High
School in three sets. Lake Wood won the first game 25-15 but Sunnyside fought back into the match and took the second set by a score of 25-23. Lake Wood edged the Grizzlies 1511 in the final set. In the last match of the day for Sunnyside, the Lady Grizzlies fell to Davis High School. The Pirates won big in the first game, beating Sunnyside 25-9. The Grizzlies fought back in the second game to win 25-22 and then went down to the wire with Davis in the third and final game before succumbing by a 15-13 score. Sunnyside Coach Mikal Aberle said the
Bickleton picks up first win of season Monday night ZILLAH – The Bickleton Pirates varsity picked up its first win of the season, beating Zillah’s ‘C’ squad last night in volleyball by scores of 25-11, 25-4 to win the best of a three-set match. No stats were recorded Monday evening. Bickleton Coach Joelle Patterson said her team performed very well against Zillah’s ‘C’ squad. She singled out Katelynn Clinton in the first game. “She had a lot of good hits,” Patterson said. Patterson also praised the team’s setter, Haley Goodnight, adding that she did a really good job of placing the ball at the top of the net. The Pirates played well but there were a lot of mistakes made on their part. Patterson said Zillah could only score if one of the Pirates made a mistake. In the first game, Bickleton make 11 mistakes. They cut down on their errors in the second game, however. Aymie Osborne kicked off the game by serving for 11 straight points to give Bickleton an 11-0 lead. Patterson said that Sidney Obanion did a good job of serving in the second game, as well. The Lady Pirates’ overall record now sits at 3-4. Bickleton will begin league play on Thursday, Sept. 16, when they travel to Lyle for a 6 p.m. match.
team was missing senior Jill Spini, who plays in the middle for Sunnyside. Several other teammates were nursing injuries, Aberle said. This was Sunnyside’s first tournament of the season and Aberle said she suspects her team wasn’t in the best of shape. “By the end of the day we were tired,” she said. The coach said she was unhappy with several missed serves and several dropped balls, adding she thought the team could have competed better. Aberle pointed out the play of Amber
Cornwell, who is just a freshman. Aberle said Cornwell contributed well to the team effort last Saturday. “I am really excited to see how she grows throughout the season,” Aberle said. The Lady Grizzlies were led by Jessie Robert with 12 kills. Teammate Emily Meyer had four kills and Cornwell finished the tournament with seven kills. Kiana Ramos added 21 assists and nine kills. Melissa Amaro had 17 assists and Geordan Skyles made 43 passes. Sunnyside will host Southridge tonight (Tuesday) at 7 p.m.
Mabton overcomes sluggish start to claim second place honors in tournament play at SunDome by Corey Russell
YAKIMA – The Mabton Vikings volleyball team played to a third place finish in their pool and then nearly won the championship among third place teams. Mabton Coach Marty McCallum said there were eight pools in the 32-team SunDome Invite last Friday. The Vikings lost to Moses Lake Christian High School 25-14, 25-22 and then lost to LaCenter 25-19, 25-17. “Our first match we were a little flat,” McCallum said. “Once we got our passing going we were able to execute our offense and that carried us through the rest of the day.” After the LaCenter match the Vikings beat Enterprise High School 25-14, 25-23 to take third place in their pool. McCallum said all the third place teams were then organized into a bracket. League rival Granger was the first opponent Mabton faced in the final bracket. The Lady Vikings beat the Spartans 25-21, 2517 to set up a semi-final match with Bickleton. The Vikings won the first game 25-11 but the Pirates fought back to take the second game, 25-17. In the third and final set Mabton pulled out a nail biter and won 15-13. This win put the Vikings into the championship match among third place teams against Athena High School. Athena proved to be too tough for the Vikings as Mabton fell 25-11, 25-11. “It was a good day,” McCallum said. “We played our first
match at 8 a.m. and our last match at 7:25 p.m. We played all day.” McCallum pointed out his team’s crisp passing in their victories, noting that’s the key to his offense. He said the defense was solid but added for the Vikings to do well, the offense needs to be clicking. He blamed his team’s losses on a lack of communication and flat play. “We weren’t executing our offense,” he said. Celina Rodriguez finished with one ace and went 19-for-21 on serving for the Vikings. Teammate Isabela Ahumada had nine kills and was 27-for-29 on her serving. Dominique Martinez had five kills, one ace and went 10-for-14 in serving. Jacqueline Cruz has three assists, made 11 kills, had six aces and was 37-for-46 on the serving line. Cassandra Madrigal put up a monster 25 kills for the Vikings. Teammate Veronica Vasquez finished with 17 kills, two aces and was 32-for-38 from the service line. Terryanna Wheeler added 20 assists, 11 kills and was 42-for-46 from the service line. Melissa Gutierrez finished the tournament with three kills and was 16for-20 while serving. Jordain Saenz added 34 assists, two kills, one ace and was 14-for-16 on her serves. The Vikings will begin league play tonight, Sept. 14, when Mabton hosts Connell for a 7 p.m. match. ‑ Corey Russell can be contacted at 509-837-4500, or email him at CRussell@DailySunNews.com

Wolf pup find may indicate state’s third pack A gray wolf pup recently trapped and radio-collared near the Canadian border in northeast Washington indicates the state may be home to a third breeding wolf pack. A wolf specialist hired by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) caught the young 50-lb. wolf earlier this month in northern Pend Oreille County, just south of the Canadian border. Attempts are underway to locate and radio-collar adult wolves in the area. The presence of the pup, and photos of other wolves captured on a remote camera in the area, indicate there is a pack in the area, said Harriet Allen, who heads WDFW’s endangered-species section. “We don’t know at this point whether the den where
the pup was born was in Washington or British Columbia,” Allen said. “If the den is in Washington, the pack can be considered a Washington pack; if the den is in British Columbia, it is a Canadian pack.” A successful breeding wolf pack is documented by locating a breeding pair of adults with two or more pups that survive until Dec. 31, Allen said. Washington’s first documented wolf pack was found in July 2008 in western Okanogan County. By December 2009 that pack, named the “Lookout Pack,” included seven animals—two adults, a 2-year-old wolf and four pups born in 2009. “The status of the Lookout Pack is uncertain at this

time,” Allen said, adding that WDFW has been unable to locate the female wolf since mid-May. The male is still being monitored and no new pups have been found. Washington’s second documented wolf pack was found in July 2009 farther south in Pend Oreille County. Two adult wolves in that pack produced six pups in 2009 and six this year. At least four of the pups born in 2009 survived until the end of the year. The pack moves between Washington and Idaho. Allen said there also may Judy be a wolf pack in the WenahaH&H Furniture Tucannon Wilderness Area of 9-8,10, 14 DSN the Umatilla National Forest in southeast Shopper 9-8Washington, al-
though wolves have not yet been confirmed there. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife radio-collared a yearling wolf south of the area in Oregon earlier this year. The gray wolf (Canis lupus) was eliminated from Washington as a reproducing species by the 1930s as a result of trapping, shooting and poisoning, and later was listed for both federal and state protection as an endangered species. Gray wolf populations in nearby Idaho, Montana and Wyoming have rebounded in recent years as a result of federal recovery efforts in the northern Rocky Mountains.
In 2009 gray wolves were removed from the federal endangered-species list in those areas and the eastern third of Washington, but earlier this year a court decision returned them to federal endangered status. Since 2007, WDFW has been drafting a gray wolf conservation and management plan with a 17-member citizen working group composed of ranchers, hunters, conservationists and others. Public review and scientific peer review of the draft environmental impact statement and plan was conducted last year and earlier this year. WDFW is currently addressing the public and

scientific comments on the draft plan, to develop a second draft for review with the working group. More information about wolves and the WDFW plan process is available at http:// wdfw.wa.gov/conservation/ gray_wolf/. Reports of possible wolf sightings can be made through a toll-free wolf reporting hotline at 1-888-584-9038. Those with concerns about possible wolf-caused livestock depredation should contact the USDA Wildlife Services office in Olympia at (360) 753-9884 or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office in Wenatchee at (509) 665-3508.

o Attorney fees drugs. But the judge ruled that Torres had already given the money for the fake drugs, which in turn meant it was the drug dealer’s money now. Contreras then sued for attorney fees. The court of appeals ruled against the decision but the State Supreme Court ruled that because Contreras had won a part of the forfeiture case she should be reimbursed for attorney
fees. The question now is how much should the city pay back. Harms said he subtracted the time spent on the failed attempt to retrieve the $57,000 and the amount comes up to approximately $10,900. Sunnyside Director of Finance & Administrative Services Byron Olson said the city is currently in nego-

If the city disagrees with the number, both sides will return to Yakima County Superior Court to hammer things out. Harms said he should know in the next 20 days if both sides will need to go back to court.

said Spokane has partnered with several local agencies – including the Department of Corrections – to utilize the storefronts. Hamilton says COPS has helped reduce crime in Spokane.
