UPDATE: This post has been revised to reflect a new date – Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2017 – for the film festival screening:

A tender film focused on family and backed by a simple soundtrack took top honors in Highline College’s film contest, a prelude to the 2017 Highline Film Festival, which will screen the films on Wednesday, Jan. 25.

The contest was open to current students and alumni.

Kelsey Par

“The Home Within” earned Kelsey Par first place and a $250 cash prize. Par’s film, along with three films by the four other finalists, will be screened during the Highline Film Festival, scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 25, 2017, at 1 p.m. in Building 7 on the college’s main campus. The event is free and open to the public.

“This is actually the first film I have ever made. I have always been passionate about photography and film, but never really had the resources until just recently,” said Par, who shot her film using a Canon EOS 60D, her father’s old camera. “This film has led me to believe I might have a talent for making films and plan to make many more films in the future. My ideas are endless and as long as I have the resources I know I can fulfill my passion.”

Contestants were challenged to create a short film not to exceed eight minutes, focused on the theme of “home,” containing a scene with a location, art piece or landmark on the Highline College campus.

“I have moved around many times in my life. Despite the troubles that came from constantly having to pack up and move, it didn’t matter because I had my family by my side,” said Par, who recently moved to Des Moines from Federal Way. “I realized that it doesn’t matter where you live as long as the people you love are with you. That is why I felt so passionate about creating this short film. I wanted to spread the message to those around me.”

Par used several family members in her film: her mom, Anna; 7-year old sister, Taylor; brother, James, 5; and nephew, Brayden, 1. All are planning on attending the Jan. 18 film screening.

Par will earn her associate degree this summer from Highline, where she is an editor for the student newspaper, The Thunderword, and a consultant in the college’s Writing Center. She plans on transferring to the University of Washington to study journalism and film.

Second place, with a prize of $125, went to Nina Releford of Federal Way for “Holiday Video.” She is studying multimedia at Highline.

Third place and $100 went to a duo from Kent for the animated film “Home Is Where the Heart Is.” It was written by Lisa Lopez, who graduated fall quarter 2016, and animated by Samantha Montes de Oca, who graduated summer quarter 2016.

Fourth place and $75 went to Matthew MacDonald of Des Moines for “Double Identity.” He is in his second year at Highline.

“Highline’s Film Studies program and Multimedia Design classes are attracting more and more students interested in film and video; the festival encourages student creativity and brings the work out into the world,” said Susan Rich, a Highline faculty member who was one of the contest judges.

Rich noted that this is the college’s first film festival in a decade or so. The previous one was held by a student club, while this one is sponsored by Highline’s Humanities department. Joining Rich as judges were Dr. Tommy Kim, who teaches literature and film studies, and Sean Puno, who teaches multimedia design.

Films were judged on creativity, story structure and production value. The contest was free to enter. Contestants could work individually or as part of a team and could enter up to three films.

More information about the contest, including guidelines and resources, is available on the Highline Film Festival blog:

Here’s Par’s film, which runs 3:36:

Highline’s main campus is located midway between Seattle and Tacoma at South 240th Street and Pacific Highway South (Highway 99).

The Des Moines Area Food Bank – which hands out over 110,000 pounds of food for the cities of Des Moines, most of Seatac, and the south hill of Kent, every year – is in need of a commercial freezer.

“One of our commercial freezers died yesterday,” they said on Facebook. “Glad it happened after our Christmas distribution, but as you can imagine, there is never a convenient time for this to happen!”

If you can donate a freezer, please let them know by calling (206) 878-2660.

If you would like to help them purchase a new freezer, you can donate online here:

In addition, the food bank needs include food for their regular service (canned meat, soup, vegetables, fruit and baby food) and food for their school backpack program (such as EasyMac, individual apple sauce or fruit cups, oatmeal packets and small 100% fruit juices). Paper grocery bags are also a constant need and something which we regularly have to purchase; we appreciate any donation of clean, untorn paper bags. Non-food items in demand include toilet paper, diapers, soap, laundry detergent, and pet food.

2016 sucked. Hard. It was without question the most challenging year of my life and maybe just simply the worst one I’ve ever had. I hope it dies in the dust of my history and not become a challenge to “God” to sharpen his pencil and invent new and even more painful ways to bring me misery. 2016 was enough for a while.

Reflecting upon my year, I see loss and I see gain. It’s difficult in the firestorm of loss to see upsides. Having survived hard things before, I know that invariably we learn valuable things through them. We learn things we cannot learn without them. We gather materials for life after the hard thing. These things are important. We add to our catalog of information from which we can construct a better life.

When our rocket ship blows up, if we survive, we have new data about how to build a better rocket ship. This is not failure. This is success. Survival is success and learning is success. Growth is success. Though sometimes, growth is uncomfortable.

Like the lobster growing out of its shell, the exoskeleton must be shed, through deliberate and painful effort, to make room for a new, better one. This is life. I know many people living uncomfortably in a shell that no longer fits. This is sad. And while change is sometimes sad, it is not as sad as not changing. This is the saddest thing there is.

So, as I turn the page on crappy 2016, I look forward to 2017. I look forward with new eyes and a perspective gained and a fresh start. I look to the sky and see a successful rocket launch. The lessons learned were for something, not nothing. Believing this requires faith. And I have it. Learning the lessons requires believing in this faith. And I do.

In my sky, I also see other colorful and stable flying machines next to mine and if at some point during this magical journey I see yours, I will smile and wave from my rocket ship window and be happy for you. Counting down…

UPDATE FRIDAY, DEC. 30, 2016, 3 p.m.:

At 11:30 a.m. Friday morning (Dec. 30, 2016), Des Moines Police Officers responded to a burglary in progress at a residence in the 25800 block of Marine View Drive South (map below).

The resident – who was not at home at the time – was watching video of a burglary suspect in her house on her cell phone. She called 911, and also dialed a neighbor who went next door and confronted the suspect. A fight took place and the suspect suffered minor injuries before fleeing in a dark colored Honda.

Sgt. Doug Jenkins told The Waterland Blog that police located the suspect vehicle not too far from where the incident occurred and attempted to stop the car, but the suspect fled. He went south on 16th Ave, west on S. 272nd Street and into Redondo. Speeds reached up to 100 MPH on Redondo Beach Drive, and the pursuit continued onto 1st Ave South into Federal Way.

The suspect crashed his car at 1st Place SW and Dash Point Road, then fled on foot. With the assistance of officers from Federal Way and Kent Police Departments a perimeter was set up. A K-9 from the Kent Police Department attempted to locate the suspect but was unsuccessful. The car the suspect was driving had been reported stolen to the Fife Police Department.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s to 40s, 6’0″ tall, with a medium build. He has long brown hair and wore it in a ponytail. He has a gray moustache that was described as a “Hulk Hogan” style moustache, and was wearing a black baseball hat, a black or gray jacket and blue jeans.

There were no injuries reported.

Below is a video showing the suspect as he was in the house:

From Advertiser DAL Law Firm:

How to Get Help to Avoid Foreclosure

If you or someone you know may be facing foreclosure, there are various options available to assist, one of which may be a loan modification. A loan modification is a process of negotiation with your mortgage lender to revise the terms of your loan and save your home. While a loan modification may be the best option for you, at your initial consultation, we will assess your options and advise you on the best option based upon your financial goals.

In a loan modification, our goal is to stop any pending foreclosure activity, reduce your monthly payment, and bring you back to a current status with your lender. There are various options available in modifying your loan, and we will work with you and your lender to reach a resolution for you. Loan modifications are very helpful for homeowners who are facing financial difficulties, as a loan modification may:

  • Reduce your interest rate
  • Provide a fixed interest rate instead of variable interest rate “arm”
  • Reduce some of your principal balance
  • Reduce late fees and penalties

Once you’ve hired DAL Law to represent you in your modification, you can direct all phone calls and correspondence from your mortgage lender to our office, and we will speak with them on your behalf so you don’t have to. We have helped many homeowners save their home with a loan modification, and we would be happy to assist you as well.

If you are in default on your mortgage or facing foreclosure, give our DAL Law Firm a call at (206) 408-8158. We can help.

“Darcel was so fantastic. she explained the whole process to me and made me feel very comfortable in moving forward. Any questions I had she answered by email of phone in a very timely manner. I felt so relieved. She was totally professional however I felt I had made a new friend when the process was complete. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”

Hey B-Town Readers!

So, in my last blog, I got into my Christmas Challenge. Basically if you take my Christmas Challenge, the idea is that for the entire month of December you do one random act of kindness each day for a total stranger (and Tweet/hashtag it #CassHolidayChallenge). Maybe just smiling at someone on the street, or giving someone a few extra dollars as a tip at a restaurant or a local coffee shop.

Someone actually commented on my last post (yes I do read all of the comments) and said that local food banks in our area are running low on donations. So if you have some non-perishable items laying around your house, why not go and donate them to someone in need?

You may be asking yourself what I’ve done for my own Christmas Challenge. Well, I smile at random people in the hallways at school or on the street all the time. But today I was very proud of myself. I once got this Wendy’s gift card for helping out at a church VBS camp and I’ve had it in my wallet for about a year now. But I’ve never used it. So, I was determined to give it to someone who would actually use it. Earlier today I was with my grandma and we were driving down the road, when we noticed a homeless man. I pulled out my wallet, unbuckled my seatbelt and rolled down my window. “Excuse me sir!” I exclaimed over the passing cars. He calmly walked over and I gave him the bright red card. “Thank you young lady!” he said while taking the card into his own hands. It makes me happy that I’m doing something for someone else this time of year especially.

So if you have time in these next couple of days, spread the holiday cheer by doing something nice for someone else. It will make you feel good and it will make the other person want to pass it on and do something nice for someone else! If I inspire at least one of you reading this to go and volunteer at a homeless shelter, or give non perishable items to a food bank, then I will have done my job!

And remember guys, one little thing goes a long way (as cheesy as it sounds)! I hope you guys have a fantastic Holliday Season. And I will make sure to write after Christmas if not before!

When you guys do something for someone else, you can put it in the comments of this blog, or tweet it out (Twitter: @Cass_Huff) tag me on Instagram (cass_huff2) using the #CassHolidayChallenge hashtag.

Hope to see you guys next time!

Over and Out!

The Des Moines Police Department is reporting that they’ve seen a huge increase – 54 percent – in reported mail thefts in 2016 over 2015, and they’ve got some tips to help residents.

“We believe at least part of the increase can be attributed to increased reporting,” Sgt. Doug Jenkins told The Waterland Blog. “Mail is an easy target for criminals who are looking for gift cards, cash or checks, especially around the holidays.”

Police add that with all the credit card companies continually sending out offers to sign up for their cards, it is easy for identity thieves to make money using these offers stolen from your mailbox.

Some of the basic tips include:

  • Check your mailbox every day and try not to leave mail in your box overnight.
  • If you are going to be out of town have the post office hold your mail delivery.
  • Never send cash, gift cards or even checks by mail.
  • Never put outgoing mail in your mail box. Putting the red flag up on your mail box is just that, a red flag that alerts criminals of a potential payday.
  • If you have out-going mail, especially with cash, gift cards or checks we strongly encourage you to take it inside the post office rather than using one of the blue mail drop boxes.
  • Use a locking mail box if possible or consider having your mail delivered to a post office box.
  • Not having packages delivered to your home if someone isn’t there to pick them up immediately (try and schedule package deliveries when you know someone will be home)
  • Ask your employer if you can have packages delivered to you at work
  • Check with a family member that doesn’t live with you to see if they will be home and have the package delivered there
  • Talk to your neighbors and see if they will be home and have the package delivered to a trusted neighbor
  • If you use Amazon, they have Amazon lockers at selected Safeway stores (both Des Moines Safeway stores have Amazon lockers – consider having your packages delivered to an Amazon locker)

Here’s more from our local police:

The Des Moines Police Department recommends that you check your mail box every day and try not to leave mail in your box overnight. If you are going to be out of town have the post office hold your mail delivery. Never send cash, gift cards or even checks by mail. Never put outgoing mail in your mail box. Putting the red flag up on your mail box is just that, a red flag that alerts criminals of a potential payday. If you have out-going mail, especially with cash, gift cards or checks we strongly encourage you to take it inside the post office rather than using one of the blue mail drop boxes. Use a locking mail box if possible or consider having your mail delivered to a post office box. We realize locking mail boxes can be defeated, a post office box requires a fee and both can be inconvenient.

The Des Moines Police Department does not specifically track package thefts. This time of year there is always an increase in package thefts across the country. While we realize it may not be convenient, we recommend not having packages delivered to your home if someone isn’t there to pick them up immediately. Try and schedule package deliveries when you know someone will be home. Ask your employer if you can have packages delivered to you at work. Check with a family member that doesn’t live with you to see if they will be home and have the package delivered there. Talk to your neighbors and see if they will be home and have the package delivered to a trusted neighbor. If you use Amazon, they have Amazon lockers at selected Safeway stores. Both Des Moines Safeway stores have Amazon lockers. Consider having your packages delivered to an Amazon locker.

Above all, we all need to look out for each other. Keep an eye on your neighbors and your neighborhood. Watch for people hanging around mail boxes or following delivery trucks. You are the best eyes and ears for your neighborhood because you know who belongs there and what is normal and what is out of the ordinary.If you see something unusual or out of the ordinary, call 911. Remember, we want to prevent crime by removing the opportunity for the criminal to commit the crime in the first place.

Commentary by Senior Writer Jack Mayne

(click “Play” button to hear audio version:)

This is the time of year when we put aside the evils, the problems and the concerns of our part of South King County and look toward the good done by youth in the community.

There is the charm and accomplishments of the 2016 Burien “Citizen of the Year,” 14-year old Cassidy Huff. Cassidy is a special needs student with a fantastic ability to give back to our community. Cassidy is a Mount Rainier High School student and a regular columnist for The B-Town Blog.

Another outstanding person is our youngest-ever photo contributor, 12-year old Isabel Herbruger of Burien. Isabel is a Girl Scout, a 4H member, and virtually certain to be an accomplished photojournalist.

Then there are the Nutting sisters from Des Moines – Natalie, 10, and Lilah, 8. They hosted a Lemonade Stand Fundraiser to raise money for the Des Moines Police Foundation Shop – they raised over $5,000. The girls were honored at a Des Moines City Council Meeting in August with the Community Star Award for Improving Public Safety and Quality of Life.

Then there is the Highline High School International Rescue Club founder Mohamed Mohamed and President Maikol Alvarado Garcia,

Mohamed decided that he wanted to form a club that created a space where anyone and everyone could come to talk and listen. He referred to it as “free therapy”. Mohamed would bring a topic of discussion that touched on the immigrant/refugee experience.

Over time, they raised money to help support a Syrian Refugee family. They ran an awareness campaign around violence that people experience all over the world, raised relief money for the Nepali Earthquake relief and suggested best practices for educating immigrant and refugee students.


REMINDER: Des Moines Gospel Chapel will be presenting a Taproot Theatre Christmas Play – ‘Hark the Harold’ – this Sunday, Dec. 18 at 11 a.m.

This is a hilarious and poignant presentation of the Christmas story.

Friends, family and neighbors are most welcome!
