Coup puts Medina’s Tom in control of Senate Democrat Sen. Rodney Tom of Medina to be majority leader BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ REPORTER NEWSPAPERS

Two Democratic state senators, including Sen. Rodney Tom of Medina, announced Monday they will join an unprecedented Republican-led Senate coalition that aims to split power between the two parties. The Majority Coalition Caucus proposes

to have six Democrat-led committees, six committees led by Republicans and three panels that are evenly split between the two parties. Those committees will have no more Rodney Tom than a one-vote majority. As part of the coalition’s arrangement, Sen. Steve Litzow, of Mercer Island, has been selected to serve as chairman of the Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee

and the leader on education issues when legislators convene for the 2013 session. Litzow represents the 41st District, which includes part of Bellevue. Tom, who will serve as the coalition’s majority leader, said during a news conference in Olympia that “the public is hungry for us to come together, to work together in a collaborative manner and that’s exactly what this coalition is trying to accomplish. We want a cooperative relationship and making sure that we work across party lines.” Sen. Tim Sheldon, of Potlach, who is also

Bellevue kids get backpacks full of food Program provides enough groceries to last them a week BY SABRINA SQUIRES UW NEWS LAB

Every Thursday morning at 8:30, a group of community members gathers at the Bellevue School District warehouse to help solve the issue of hunger — one student at a time. With grocery bags in hand, volunteers grab snacks, a quart of milk, vegetables, canned foods, fruit cups, raisins — as well as breakfast and lunch items – until the bag is full of sufficient items to last a week, outside of the students’ meals at school. “I was committed to start, even if there were just a few kids,” said Jan Starr, founder of Backpack Meals for Kids. “I didn’t want to wait.”

Jamen Shively is no one you’d expect to be peddling marijuana. Dressed sharply in a suit and tie, he moves his hands emotively as he discusses his company, Diego Pellicer, which will sell premium grade pot following the passage of Initiative 502 this November. “We’re bringing marijuana from the back alley bagging — who knows where it came from; who knows what it’s laced with, or what got in there accidentally,” said Shively, “to a premium category like a fine Cognac or Brandy.” Shively, a former corporate manager at Microsoft who now lives in Bellevue, says the legalization of marijuana last Thursday marks the beginning of a new era in Washington state. Supported by legal advisers and financial managers — among them Alan Valdes of the New York Stock Exchange — Shively hopes to open storefronts across the state, and eventually nation. “I think the writing is on the wall for the legalization of marijuana,” said Shively, who will market his product for SEE POT ENTREPRENEUR, 5

Have a water efficient H2Oliday! When preparing for meals and parties this holiday season, you can use much more water than your normal, everyday use. Running your tap continuously while preparing food or washing dishes wastes water. You can use more than two gallons of water every minute your tap is running. That’s a lot when you’re cooking a big meal for extended family members and friends! Here are two ways to reduce your water and energy use over the holidays: • scrape dirty dishes instead of using water to rinse them before you put them in the dishwasher. •

if you don’t use a dishwasher, fill the sink with a few gallons of soapy wash water, clean your dishes, and put them aside. then rinse them all together afterward.

either of these simple practices could save 10 gallons of water each time you wash dishes. if every american household reduced

their water use by 10 gallons on just one meal this holiday season, we could save more than 1 billion gallons of water, as well as the energy and materials used to pump and treat tap water. For more water saving tips, visit the Cascade Water alliance website at cascadewater.org.

And don’t forget these winter water tips: Winterize your pipes make sure that all outdoor spigots are winterized; this could avoid pipes from freezing, bursting and losing water.

Insulate insulate hot water pipes to reduce the amount of water that must be run in order to get hot water to the faucet.

Locate your master water shut off valve also, remember to locate your master water shut off valve in your house — mark it for quick identification. if a water pipe were to break, it could cause flooding and tremendous water loss.

Check for leaks in pipes, hoses, hose connections, and faucets even a tiny leak can translate into thousands of gallons of wasted water over a short period of time. repair or replace any equipment leaking water immediately.

Use shut-off nozzles on hoses Use nozzles which completely turn off the water when you are not using it; they also help to more effectively direct water than using your finger to create a stream.

Overlake Medical Center breaks ground on new Heart and Vascular Center

“pleasure and creative pursuits.” Diego Pellicer hopes to distinguish itself from other future brands with its emphasis on quality and service. Shively says he wants to pair sales with education, encouraging responsible consumption, particularly during the first few years of legalization. “We’re building relationships with the customers, so we’re not only the source of the product,” he explains, “but also the best information.” Shively is 44 and says that Diego Pellicer will target a mostly older demographic because of its disposable income, life experience and more leisure time. “For me it really fits into my life now, in my 40s,” said Shively. “A lot of our customers will be first-time users, or maybe they haven’t used in 30 years.…So we’re educating about the different varieties that exist, and then educating about the safety aspect of it.” Washington joined Colorado in the decriminalization of marijuana, which allows for the private possession of up to an ounce of weed, among adults 21 and older. But despite comparisons to the end of prohibition in the 1930s, passage of I-502 is unlike anything before, says Shively. “What you have for the first time, not just in U.S. history, but in the world history of capitalism, [is] a $100 billion legal market being created virtually overnight, where there does not exist a single established brand.” Though Shively recognizes the lucrative market for marijuana in Washington state, the biggest victory, he says, lies in the justice achieved under I-502. With 80,000 people behind bars nationally for the possession of marijuana, says Shively, and an average of 800,000 people arrested per year, legalization will end an era of oppressive criminalization. He hopes the industry will diminish the black market for the drug, and address any misconceptions about the use of marijuana. “I pretty much came to the conclusion that it’s actually a health food...” said Shively. “I would sooner get sicker from drinking too much chai.” Shively admits he was skeptical at first. He had been doing business with a friend in the cattle industry in Colorado, who for several years had been growing marijuana for medicinal purposes. Those same folks had been eyeing the Washington market. Shively didn’t know much about marijuana at the time, but the more he researched, the more harmless he realized pot was. “The health benefits are well documented. But for me, the biggest benefit is, if I’m socializing and I consume a

Shively, who is founder and CEO of the new company, Diego Pellicer, plans to launch a line of premium grade products. COURTESY PHOTO, Diego Pellicer small amount of marijuana…it lets my creativity come forth.” Diego Pellicer is named after Shively’s great grandfather, who was vice governor of the island of Cebu in the Philippines, when it was still a Spanish colony. The largest hemp grower in the world at the time, he supplied hemp rope during the Spanish American War, even inventing a machine to make extracting fibers from the stock more efficient. “I’m very proud to be able to honor him and his memory by putting his name to the company, and the brand,” said Shively. Diego Pellicer is operating under Shively’s assumption the federal government will allow for businesses like his. Much remains to be seen about the marijuana industry in Washington. But Shively can say with confidence, that thanks to legalization: “We’re going to do away with the black market. We’re going to drive it deep underground. I’m very proud of that.”

Overlake Medical Center last week broke ground on the new $17.4 million David and Shelley Hovind Heart & Vascular Center, which is scheduled to open in Fall 2013. The new state-of-the-art facility will enable Overlake to bring its testing and therapeutic services together in one central location, allowing an enhanced patient experience and a technologically advanced level of care. “Advanced care is a hallmark of Overlake Medical Center, which is the first and only hospital to perform open-heart surgery on the Eastside,” said Dr. Joseph Doucette, Overlake’s director of invasive cardiology. “The new Heart and Vascular Center will enable us to remain at the forefront of cardiac care in the Puget Sound region and provide the Eastside community with unparalleled, world-class care.” The new Heart and Vascular Center is Overlake’s response to a growing demand. Heart disease is most prevalent among men and women over the age of 65, and on the Eastside, this population is expected to grow 30 percent over the next five years. The new facility will be 19,200 square feet. It will offer larger rooms for procedures both before and after surgery, and will have two electrophysiology suites, two cardiac catheterization labs, a hybrid catheterization lab/ operating room, a vascular intervention radiology suite and a dedicated entrance with drive-through access. The Heart and Vascular Center is named for David and Shelley Hovind, who donated $1 million to Overlake Hospital Foundation to help fund the new facility.

Senate coup good move for state

K

udos to Eastside Sen. Rodney Tom (D-Medina) for joining with fellow Democrat Tim Sheldon of Potlach to give Republicans control of the state Senate. The move is the best way to insure there will be a balance of power in Olympia when the Legislature convenes on Jan. 14. Both Tom and Sheldon are conservative Democrats and will have key leadership posts under the joint arrangement with Republicans. Tom will be the Senate majority leader and Sheldon president pro-tempore when Lt. Gov. Brad Owen is absent. It didn’t take long for snotty comments to surface, accusing Tom and Sheldon of selling out voters for political power. What claptrap. In reality, the move by Tom and Sheldon is the best hope that all views – Democrat and Republican – will be considered as the Legislature works to craft a budget that is balanced and serves residents’ needs. Remember, Governor-elect Jay Inslee is a Democrat and the Democrats control the House. Voters have made it next to impossible for the Legislature and governor to raise taxes for the next two years by passing I-1185 in November. Even so, Democrat control of the governor’s office, House and Senate would let the party do pretty much whatever it wanted regarding other legislation. We know Washington is a “blue” state, but that doesn’t mean that all voters want only Democrats calling the shots. Seattle Democratic Sen. Ed Murray, who had been prepared to lead the Senate, said the move by Tom and Sheldon “could bring the institution to a halt.” We don’t share his concern, but in any case, it’s better than letting the Democrats railroad through any thing they wish. Sens. Tom and Sheldon have made sure this won’t happen. Other Democrats should see the wisdom of this, too. – Craig Groshart, Bellevue Repoerter

My gift list this year – help others

L

ast week I was watching TV with my 12–year–old cousin when he asked me a burning question: “What do you want for Christmas?” “Nothing,” I responded. And for the first time in years, I honestly meant it. Being the youngest of three children, I’ve been getting presents from everyone Keegan Prosser else in my family since I was born – usually with the understanding that, “Oh, Keegan’s just a kid – she can’t afford to buy gifts.” In recent years, it’s been less about what I expect under my Christmas

LETTERS

Election a wake-up call Politically speaking, this was a year in which the Republicans should have made gains. Many voters were ready for — or at least ready to consider — a new direction for our state and nation. On the national level, Mitt Romney had been wildly successful in business and supposedly understood how to

tree. Rather, it’s been about what I can do for others: giving change to the Santa standing outside of Safeway, buying a coffee for the person behind me in line – or helping my mom pick out gifts for families in need as part of her school’s “giving tree” program. If you don’t know what a giving tree is, it goes a little something like this: families who cannot afford to buy presents for Christmas register with a school (or company, or organization), and if accepted, submit a list of things they could use this year. From there, the school (or company, or organization) write the items on pieces of paper and put them on a Christmas tree – with the intention that community members select a piece of paper, purchase said item and bring it back to be gifted anonymously.

This Christmas marks my 23rd on this earth. It also marks the first time I’ve been (more or less) financially independent from my parents – a fact that has made this whole “spending money on useless gifts” thing even more real. So what do I want for Christmas? I want my family and friends to skip spending money on dumb trinkets I don’t really need. Instead, I’m asking them to spend it on a little girl who only dreamed of receiving that One Direction CD. Or a little boy whose never had his own basketball. Or a mom and dad whose only wish is to see their kids smile. Because that’s what the holidays are really about.

create jobs and get the economy back on track. At the state level, Rob McKenna had spent his entire career in state government, had supreme command of the issues facing our state, and proposed specific policy solutions. Yet they both lost. The Republican primaries forced Romney too far to the right on many important issues, making it impossible for him to ‘etch-a-sketch’ his way back to the political center in time for election day. McKenna’s decision to join the

lawsuit challenging Obamacare, along with his opposition to R-74 and I-502, likely cost him too many votes in democratic King County to win statewide. Elections are won in the political center. The GOP must stop pandering to the far right, and it must moderate its stance on many social issues. Romney’s failed presidential bid and McKenna’s failed gubernatorial bid should be a wake-up call to Republicans.

Human trafficking is closer than you think BY KAREN OLCOTT

H

uman trafficking is profit-driven, devious and, like water, it finds its way into the cracks and crevices of civil society. It’s so repellant, we tend to think it’s far away. In reality, it’s much closer than you think. “Rape for Profit,” a documentary by local filmmakers about sex trafficking in Seattle, is showing at Lincoln Square Cinemas through Dec. 18 in Bellevue. The film shows the gritty and stark reality of human exploitation on our Karen Olcott streets, in our neighborhoods, in our midst. It highlights how this profit-driven enterprise robs individuals, many of them girls as young as 13, of their freedom, their rights and their human dignity. Out of our sight, but just next door, human beings are being used over and over – and against their will. Human trafficking is a $32 billion global business, driven by profit and is one of the fastestgrowing criminal enterprises worldwide. Here

OTHER VOICES in the Puget Sound, it is estimated that 300-500 girls are exploited every night. Their pimps earn roughly $400,000 per year. In September 2012 at the Clinton Global Initiative, President Barack Obama asked the U.S. and international community to step up efforts to help more than 20 million victims of human trafficking around the globe. Obama said he was not using the term of “slavery” lightly, noting that it evoked a painful past for America and calling it an “injustice” and an “outrage.” Human trafficking, Obama said, “must be called by its true name: modern slavery.” Washington state has been a forerunner of policy, legislation and civic engagement with champions such as the King County Council, Seattle City Council, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn, state Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles and former state Rep. Velma Veloria working with pioneering nonprofits and community organizations in our region. And, as the recent president of the National Association of Attorneys General, Washington’s Rob McKenna launched a standing initiative

across all 50 states. “Washington state lawmakers, Republican and Democrats alike, are national leaders on this important issue,” said McKenna. “This is not a partisan issue – it is a human rights issue for the 21st century.” This Northwest leadership is creating a huge spinnaker wind for the movement across the U.S. It is accelerating the conversation, the cultural change and the outcry that urges the heart to do something, anything, everything. I urge you to see the film and adopt a “zero tolerance” against human trafficking. It seems very fitting that “Lincoln,” a movie about ending slavery, and “Rape for Profit,” a documentation of its persistence, are being screened just a few feet apart. Join The Freedom Movement at www.TraffickingFreedom.org, engage with leading organizations and experts, and turn the primal scream into a collective shout to end human trafficking. Karen Olcott of Partnerships for Global Impact is dedicated to connecting and unifying the movement to end human trafficking. If you suspect trafficking, call the confidential, 24-hour, toll-free National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 1-888-373-7888.

One injured in escalator incident at Bellevue Square An escalator at Bellevue Square had a mechanical failure Dec. 6, resulting in minor injuries to a 30-year-old male. The incident occurred at 7:21 p.m. at an escalator in the Bellevue Square common area within Macy’s. The man, as well as another adult and two children, were transported to Overlake Hospital as

a precaution. Firefighters disconnected the escalator’s power and worked with Kemper Development Security to ensure the area remained safe. The state escalator inspector has been notified. All escalators throughout Bellevue Square are frequently inspected by the escalator contractor and monthly by the state (Department of Labor

and Industries), according to Jennifer Leavitt, VP of Marketing for Kemper Development Company. Kemper Development will work with Schindler, their escalator maintenance company, and the state inspectors to determine the cause of the escalator’s failure, Leavitt said. Firefighters from both Bellevue and Kirkland responded to the incident.

DelBene calls for action on ‘fiscal cliff ’ U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene, noting that the economy added 146,000 jobs and the unemployment rate fell to 7.7 percent in November, called on both Democrats and RepubSuzan DelBene licans to deal with the “fiscal cliff ” facing the nation. DelBene, of Medina, who represents the state’s 1st Congressional District, said the numbers from the Department of Labor show “our economy is moving in the right direction,” but added the recovery “is very fragile right now and there’s more to do.: In a news release, DelBene said that failure to address the “fiscal cliff,” an end-of-the-year event that would see taxes rise along with large cuts in spending, would “hurt millions of families across the nation in the form of higher taxes and greater financial uncertainty for small businesses.”

Delegation from Spanish university visits BC A delegation from the University of León visited Bellevue College this week to continue work on a formal partnership that will provide for a dual degree program and new opportunities for student exchanges between the two institutions. The partnership initially will focus on a collaboration between the two nursing programs, with a first-of-its-kind pilot program in Washington state to integrate León’s nursing curriculum into Bellevue’s associate degree in nursing. Bellevue College nursing students will be able to earn community health hours in Spain and pick up valuable Spanish-language skills that can be put to use here in the Puget Sound. BC officials also envision students in other programs, such as World Languages, as well as faculty, participating in exchanges. For the University of León, the pilot exchange will provide its nursing students with the oppor-

Volunteering Can Be Easy and Rewarding For many of us, December is a month when our thoughts and concerns for the less fortunate in our communities really come to the forefront. This is no doubt due in part to the holidays we celebrate and due in part to the seasonal weather. Cold, wet and windy days remind us how tough life can sometimes be. For an organization like Food Lifeline, the less fortunate are always at the forefront of their thoughts and efforts. Each year in November and December QFC is proud to support Food Lifeline in the Puget Sound area and the Oregon Food Bank in Oregon with a twomonth campaign to collect both food and cash for these organizations. Our campaign is called Bringing Hope To the Table. The food and money that is accumulated helps sustain these organizations and their clients for months after the holidays are over. QFC is also proud to be a year ‘round partner with these organizations in providing wholesome food through the Grocery Rescue Program. Food that no longer meets our standards for quality and

freshness, but that is still wholesome and healthful is donated and used to feed hungry people through the great work of these organizations. Much of the great work that Food Lifeline does would not be possible without the assistance of a large group of volunteers. Nora Peters, a Grocery Rescue Program Representative at Food Lifeline notes, “All non-profits agree that volunteers who give their skills and time are a precious resource and are really the backbone of our operations. This is even more true at Food Lifeline where every year over 9,000 volunteers help us sort and repack food donations, help with administrative tasks in our office, and with food and fund drives. These volunteers are the equivalent of 20 full-time employees!” Many volunteers return often to help Food Lifeline, but the door is always open for people who want to donate even just a few hours of their time. As the Food Lifeline website notes, “Businesses, schools, social clubs, faith-based groups, service

organization and youth groups all pitch in to help feed the hungry.” Nora stated, “Volunteering isn’t just good for us and the people we serve – it’s also good for your health! Studies have shown that volunteering improves one’s mental and emotional well-being, expands our social safety nets, staves off depression, and encourages participating youth to avoid risky behaviors. Also, while much of the motivation for volunteering is altruistic, it is also a smart career move. You can bring your unique set of skills to the table and teach fellow volunteers, and you can gain experience,

connections, and hone marketable skills in communication and leadership. What’s more, volunteering can just be plain old fun!” Volunteers age 6 or older are welcome to come as individuals, as a family, or as a group of friends/co-workers/members of a place of worship/sports team, etc. To learn more about Food Lifeline’s volunteer opportunities, please visit their website www.foodlifeline.org/volunteer or send an email to the Volunteer Team at volunteer@ fll.org.

Seattle firm hopes to start construction on Bel-Red complex next summer BY CELINA KAREIVA BELLEVUE REPORTER

Four multi-family buildings are planned for construction at the former site of Angelo’s Nursery, just north of Crossroads in the Overlake area. The buildings, which will be located at 2070 NE Bel-Red Road, will house approximately 450 units and provide 600 parking stalls both above and belowground. Goodman Real Estate (GRE), a Seattle firm, applied for the permit in early November, and tentatively plans to have the project completed by the end of 2014. “We’re now working on the design and hope to be submitting a design packet toward the end of the year,” said Brad Reisinger, a project manager with GRE. The space, formerly occupied by Angelo’s nursery, has been considered for several different uses since 2007, when it closed. Puget Sound Energy wanted to build an electric substation on the site and Crescent

Bellevue builder featured in book Two new-construction projects from long-time builder and remodeler Donna Shirey are featured in a new book: PreFabulous + Almost off the Grid: Your Path to Building an Energy Independent Home by author Sheri Koones. The book features Shirey’s Built Green 5 Star Zero Energy Idea House at Bass Cove in Bellevue and her Rosemary Beach Platinum House in Florida. “It’s a real honor to have my homes included in Sheri’s beautiful guide featuring the most energy-efficient homes in the country,” commented Shirey. “I think this book will be a helpful resource for anyone thinking about creating a comfortable, sustainable, green living space for themselves or their clients.” Shirey has over three decades of experience in the construction business. She founded Shirey Handyman Service and Shirey Contracting Services, a company that has been building and remodeling Built Green, Built Smart homes in the Greater Seattle area since 1982. She lives in Bellevue.

View Investments, a Canadian firm, shared plans to build a hotel and senior housing in the space. PSE subsequently built a substation on the other side of Bel-Red. If approved, the buildings could be up to six stories tall. Construction would begin in July of 2013. GRE will likely save room for commercial retail space in the ground floor of one building. Though in a meeting Tuesday night, GRE said that space may be reverted

to residential use, if there isn’t demand for retail. Reisinger said that he expects the building will have plenty of interest with Microsoft headquarters just up the road. “Bellevue needs housing,” said Reisinger, “with the job center that it’s become.” Celina Kareiva 425-453-4290; ckareiva@bellevuereporter.com

PSE buys gas-fired power plant Bellevue-based Puget Sound Energy has purchased a 270-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired power plant in northwest Washington, near Ferndale. PSE bought the Whatcom County facility from Tenaska Washington Partners, L.P. The Whatcom County facility employs combined-cycle, co-generation technology that can generate electricity first from its

natural gas-fired turbines, and then from a steamdriven turbine drawing exhaust heat from the two gas-fired units. The two-stage process boosts operating efficiency, lowers fuel costs and reduces

air emissions. Built in 1994, the power plant is adjacent to a Phillips 66 oil refinery about five miles west of Ferndale. Through 2011, PSE had purchased the plant’s power output from

Tenaska. Market studies indicate that utility ownership of the facility will provide lower-cost power to PSE customers, according to Paul Wiegand, PSE senior vice president of Energy Operations.

’ll admit it: I’m a lazy runner. To overcome my hatred of running, I often seek out ways to stay motivated. Sometimes I pretend I’m in a race or that I’m running from zombies. Other times I write haiku in my head. Music helps, but I’ve gotten tired of the songs on my iPod. I can only listen to “Gangnum Style” so many times before I feel like I’m running away from (not

I listen to books during my commute, but I had never considered it an option for running. The King County Library System has a great collection of fiction and nonfiction on a device called a Playaway. Playaways are mp3 players loaded with an audio book. Each kit comes with batteries and ear phones, but any earphones with a universal jack will work. The device is small enough to fit into a pocket or armband and weighs next to nothing. I wanted to try Beth’s idea so I perused the shelves for an appealing title. I selected “Where The Red Fern Grows.” I learned, though, that next time I will pick a happier book. While “Where The Red Fern Grows” is a classic of children’s literature, it’s a story with a dog, and we all know what happens in stories with a dog.

I had visions of breaking down in tears on the path at Green Lake when I got to that part. You know…the sad part. Luckily I reached that chapter by the time I got home and could lock myself away to finish the remaining pages. The experiment worked. I found that I logged more miles because I had something to concentrate on, rather than listen to the awful plodding sound of my feet on the pavement at 6 a.m. I’m looking for more ways to incorporate audio books into my daily life. Maybe I’ll get around to weeding out that flower garden or go for another run. I may be gone a while. I just started “War and Peace.”

Lawford to keynote YES fundraiser

A new requirement for carbon monoxide detectors in Washington homes takes effect on Jan. 1. State law has required the alarms in new construction beginning in 2011. The 2013 law requires the detectors in all existing residences, including apartments, condos, hotels, dormitories and residential institutions. Owners of single-family homes will be required to have the detectors when their home is sold or when they apply for a remodeling permit. The carbon monoxide alarms look similar to smoke alarms. They can be hard-wired or battery powered. They are sold where smoke alarms are sold and some models are combined with a smoke alarm. Prices range

middle and high schools. Different areas have different needs, and Starr’s group works with school counselors in determining who might benefit from the program. “Counselors and teachers see that some kids weren’t receiving an adequate meal,” Starr said, noting that the educators have consistent interactions with their students, so are aware of what is needed at their corresponding schools each week. The organization is not affiliated with the school district, but it has

been very supportive. After 40 to 60 bags are full, volunteers jump into their cars and discreetly bring the backpacks containing grocery bags full of food to the respective schools. “We drop off the backpacks in the counseling office so the other kids don’t have to know,” noted Kris Kennedy, one of the volunteers. Once the donated backpacks arrive, students take the plastic bags of food and shove them in their own backpack. A major part of the group’s success over the past two school years has been because of community support; the program is run entirely by donations. Also, since it is partnered with

able budget. Tom noted those are values and needs of the state’s middle class. Republican senators also lauded the effort as an equitable approach that would evenly divide the governing structure across party lines. But the proposal is drawing opposition from some Democratic Party leaders, who say the coalition is risky and would bring instability and more gridlock to Olympia. Washington State Democratic Party Chair Dwight Pelz said in a news release that Sens. Tom and Sheldon stood for re-election as Democrats in 2010. “But today, (they) turned their backs on the Democratic Party by siding with a radically right Republican caucus that earlier this year attempted to slash critically important funding for education and social services for the elderly and the vulnerable,” said Pelz, who added the proposal is a “prescription for instability and division.” He also claims that Tom “instigated this unprecedented coup and joined with Republicans to install himself as majority leader out of a desire to further his own personal ambitions, not out of what is in the best interests of his constituents or the public at large.” However, Tom told the Reporter that the coalition is about governing, not politics. “The election season is over and citizens want us to govern and get away from political bickering and move forward on the issues,” said Tom, noting that he is not joining the coalition for his own personal interests. “I think we have a great opportunity and this is unique in that we’re actually listening to voters who want us to govern and get away from politics and to help solve the problems that are the mainstay of middle class families in the state and that’s what we intend to do.”

IMPLANT ADVANTAGES If you are considering whether a dental implant is worth the increased cost over a bridge or dentures, consider the advantages that implants have over the other two tooth-replacement procedures. In order to secure a bridge properly, it is necessary to file down two adjoining teeth, which serve as abutments. In addition, dentures do not have the natural feel and function of implants. The placement of an implant involves the insertion of a titanium screw that, in time, fully integrates with the jaw bone. Once it does, a prosthetic tooth is attached to it to create a man-made crown and root. Because a dental implant so closely approximates a real tooth in its design, it feels and looks natural. Implant dentistry is the modern method of replacing missing teeth and it provides a permanent alternative to many dental problems. Dental implants can last a lifetime and are an excellent investment in oral health. At NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, you can expect us to give you gentle, comforting care, using the most up-to-date dental techniques and equipment. We’re located in the Forest Office Park, Building F, at 14655 Bel-Red Road, Suite 101, near the Microsoft Main Campus in Bellevue. Call 425.641.4111 for an appointment.

Celebrate Christmas with us!

The story of the birth of Jesus and time itself BY DAVE SHANER SPECIAL TO THE REPORTER

There are some events in history that have dramatically shaped the world and the direction it went after that. Some of these include the invention of the wheel, movable type, the discovery/harnessing of electricity, the coming of the computer, etc.

December 25 is a day that has been set aside by most of the Christian world to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Whether one is a Christian or not, this day has affected how we keep track of time. Our current method of dating is attributed to Dionysius Exuguus, a Christian monk, in AD 525. Prior to this dating system, time was dated most often by when

a king served. Thus, even in the Christian scriptures, a time will be referred to like “... In the time of Herod king of Judea ...” (Luke 1:5) or “In the 36th year of Asa’s reign” (2 Chronicles 16:1). Dionysius decided to start dating everything with the birth of Christ. BC, of course, means before Christ. Even the term BCE/CE (Before Common Era/Common

Era), which is an alternative for BC/AD, are terms that are still rooted to the birth of Christ. BC is an abbreviation for Before Christ and is typically listed after the year, for example 300 BC. AD is the latin for Anno Domini, meaning the year of our lord. It is SEE JESUS, 13

Celebrate Christmas with us! How to keep your holiday shopping safe

JESUS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 12

not a reference for the death of Christ as some commonly think. Using latin grammar, the abbreviation comes before the year, for example this year would be AD 2012. Thus, the entire world today, whether Christian or not, dates history upon the arrival of Jesus. However, years later, historians through careful study found that Dionysius was about four years off in his calculations of the birth of Jesus Christ. Thus, Jesus was born around 4 BC. Note that in this system of years, there is no year zero. AD 1 follows 1 BC. One other aspect is the astronomical record. Scripture records that Magi from the east came to Jerusalem looking for the king of the Jews to worship Him as a result of seeing His star in the east (Matthew 2:2). Several years ago, I was able to attend a sky presentation at the planetarium in Chicago. It traced back through time to what the position of the planets and stars would have been in the Middle East at the time of the birth of Christ. To everyone’s delight, one “star” was much brighter than all of the others. Actually, they concluded that it was an alignment of Jupiter, Saturn and several stars that gave off a brilliant illumination. So, even history traced out, attests to the accuracy of the biblical record. Dave Shaner is Senior Minister of the Bellevue Church of Christ, 1212 104th Ave. SE; www.bellevuechurchofchrist.org.

It’s become a yearly tradition at the state Attorney General’s office to release a list of holiday shopping tips. This year, Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna recruited attorneys, investigators and other office staff to chip in with their suggestions: ■ Plan your spending: “Create a budget before you hit the mall or the Internet,” McKenna said. “Know in advance how much you plan to spend on each person on your list. It’s the simplest, yet perhaps one of the least used tips to help you keep your spending in check. It also helps prevent you from picking up a little something for yourself while you’re shopping for others.” The Better Business Bureau, in cooperation with Clearpoint Credit Solutions, offers a Holiday Planner Calculator to help you create a holiday shopping budget. ■ Think twice about gift cards: “Will the recipient use it soon?” asks Senior Attorney General’s Office Investigator MaryBeth Haggerty-Shaw. “Is it a realistic gift for that person? Gift cards that are not used right away are often not used at all. I have two in my wallet from last Christmas. I was moving my parents this summer and found a two-inch pile of cards they received

Joy to theWorld

over the years to restaurants, bookstores and department stores that have never been used. Retailers encourage gift cards because only a percentage of them are ever used. Instead, try a personal gift card from you. A day of yard work, take someone to lunch during the dark winter days, make a monthly dessert or plate of cookies.” ■ Think three times about gift cards: “Most gift cards don’t expire in Washington and should not incur fees, said Managing Assistant Attorney General Mary Lobdell. “Bank gift cards are the exception. Beware of that mall gift card with the Visa logo on it. Most will expire and incur fees, so check the fine print on the back of the card. Retailers also count on the consumer losing or forgetting to redeem the gift card. Retailers call this “breakage” and it’s only good for them. Also, when trying to redeem a gift card – if you know that card has money left on it – don’t take no for an answer. If the retailer won’t honor the card, file a complaint with the Attorney General’s Office. ■ Use credit cards – not debit cards – online: “Remember that your debit card is linked directly to your checking account,” says AGO Research Analyst Sean Beary. “Let’s say you were tricked into

making a purchase on a site owned by a shady overseas operation. Most credit cards offer some fraud protection, limiting your losses, as long as you report the fraud immediately. That’s not always the case with debit cards. Plus, you don’t want to provide an opportunity for someone to empty out your checking account.” ■ Use secure websites for online shopping: “One clue about which websites are safe and which aren’t is to look for ‘https’ in the web address and a little yellow padlock in the browser bar,” said AGO Consumer Protection Division Chief Shannon Smith. “Also, don’t make purchases over a free wi-fi hotspot, which can be scanned by those looking to capture your passwords and other information.” ■ Free trial offers aren’t so free: “This happens with some frequency when people buy electronic products – a music or video game service, for example – and there is an attached free trial for a service that you don’t care about or want,” said L. Jim McAdams, AGO Program Specialist. “These quickly convert into monthly charges on your credit card. You may end up being billed in a few weeks or months for something you didn’t even notice.”

$6,000 raised for Newport Hills fire victims By Celina Kareiva Bellevue Reporter

After a fire destroyed part of the Newporter apartment complex and left six families displaced last

month, the community immediately rallied to support those affected. A fundraiser at Newport Hills Community Church on Dec. 8 raised an estimated $6,000. Pastor Paul Burnham

said he was overwhelmed by the outpouring of sympathy. Volunteers donated both their time and supplies to the pancake breakfast, hosted from 9 a.m. to noon last weekend. Approximate-

ly 300 people attended. “These are the people across the street from us,” said Burnham. “They’re our neighbors, our community. We care for their spiritual needs, and we care for their physical needs.” The Newporter apartment complex, at 5900 119th Ave S.E., broke into flames on the night of Nov. 27, causing $300,000 in damages. Nobody was injured in the flames, but 10

units received water or fire damage and the remaining six were expected to require greater repairs. The fire was deemed accidental. An investigation revealed a utility chase had been covered over by roofers. Burnham said money was still coming in, and he hoped to present victims of the fire with the total amount by the end of the week. Each family will be

awarded about $1,000. Burnham will ask about additional needs — furniture, clothes and household items — when he presents them with the amount. “It was very, very healthy for the community,” said Burnham of the event. “We all came together and gave generously.” Celina Kareiva 425-453-4290 ckareiva@bellevuereporter.com

The International School hosted a breakfast Dec. 5 to welcome 28 students from St. Stanislaus Catholic School in Nantes, France. The students, who spent the previous week in New York City, will stay with host families in Bellevue for the next two weeks as part of the school’s international exchange program. This visit marks 20 years of friendship between St. Stanislaus and the International School. “This exchange helps build an understanding of different cultures and helps build an International perspective,” said Jennifer Rose, principal at the International School. Rose said developing an international perspective is a key component of the curriculum at the International School – and that the school hopes to develop relationships with schools in other countries in coming years. “We feel that exchanges are a great way to educate,” she said. The 28 French students will play host to an equal number of International School students when they travel to Nantes in April. KEEGAN PROSSER, BELLEVUE REPORTER

Hero House rebuilding lives for the mentally ill BY LINDA BALL

INSIDE HERO HOUSE

Long gone are the days of locking up the mentally ill and giving them pills. But there is still a stigma attached to those who suffer from mental illness. At Hero House in Bellevue, a clubhouse for the mentally ill, things are very different. The space – almost 5,000 square feet – does not feel clinical. Executive director Erica Horn knows all her members and what each is dealing with. With a staff of five, Horn included, and a limited budget, the staff and members work side-by-side on every aspect of operation at the clubhouse. Hero (Hope, Empowerment, Relationships and Opportunities) House was started in 2005 as a program of the National Stan Donogh III, with Executive Director of Hero House, Erica Horn, in the kitchen at Alliance on Mental Illness Hero House.

Sports Roundup

REPORTER Q and A | Bellevue College’s Max Brown

What’s happening in the world of sports

BC pitcher goes international

Local senior signs with Seattle U Interlake senior and baseball player Sam Finfer recently signed a letter of intent to continue his playing career and education at Seattle University with coach Donny Harrel. While he plays multiple positions for coach Marc Linn and the Saints, Harrel said Finfer projects as a catcher at the collegiate level. “Sam comes in as another great signing for us behind the plate,” Harrel said in a press release from the school. “What I love is that even with Brian Olson already here, Sam did not back away from the challenge of getting innings behind the plate. His defensive skill set will allow us to control the running game. He brings another left handed bat to our lineup and finds ways to put the barrel on the ball.” Seattle University has successfully mined the Eastside and Puget Sound region under Harrel and the Redhawks will be a full-time member of the Western Athletic Conference for the 2013 season and beyond.

Max Brown is not who you think he is. The sophomore outfielder for coach Mark Yoshino and the Bellevue College Bulldogs has a familiar name in the sports community on the Eastside, sharing the moniker with the nation’s top-ranked quarterback from Skyline High School. But that isn’t stopping him from garnering some fame himself. Brown, a Mount Si graduate and former 3A state baseball champion with the Wildcats, recently returned from playing with Team New Zealand in World Baseball Classic qualifying. While the Kiwis came up one win short of a spot in the worldwide tournament, Brown had the experience of a lifetime and took some time with the Reporter to talk about traveling around the world, crossing the street in Taiwan, playing with grizzled veterans and winning the NWAACC title.

REPORTER: What was the process like once you decided to try out for the team? BROWN: We were in New Zealand for 10 or 11 days. The workouts weren’t anything to kill us, we were just getting to know each other. We went to Australia for a week and played teams there. That was when we really started coming together and when we got to Taiwan we were just clicking. REPORTER: What was the best part of the international baseball experience? BROWN: Definitely representing New Zealand, hearing that National Anthem. Their rugby team does the Haka and we had a local Maori create a Haka for baseball. All the moves and words were baseball-oriented. That was the best part, getting the crowd fired-up and staring the other team down. REPORTER: What was a unique experience overseas? BROWN: Taiwan was a whole other world. There were so many people. Crossing the street, you had to dodge

The different food and just everything there was the most fun part. REPORTER: There were a number of guys who were either playing professionally or had in the past. How valuable was it, for a younger guy like yourself, to be around that level of experience? BROWN: It was really valuable playing with all those guys who have played at the professional level and know what it is like to compete there. It was good to see where I stood up against those guys and ask them questions about the professional life to get a feel for what it is like. The dream I always had as a kid seems to be getting closer. REPORTER: What are your hopes for BC this year? BROWN: We definitely want to win the NWAACC title. We had all the talent in the world last year and we just couldn’t pull it together in the end.

Correction

REPORTER: Do you know Skyline quarterback Max Browne? BROWN: I don’t know him personally, but I get a lot of friend requests on Facebook. I get coaches trying to talk to me. A couple times, I’ve messed with them and pretended to be him. I said, “I’m ready to come and start, coach.”

The season may be over for the Bellevue football team, but the historic milestones keep coming. A loss by previously top-ranked Manatee of Bradenton, Fla., put the top spot in the ESPN.com national football rankings up for grabs and it was coach Butch Goncharoff ’s Wolverines who were the beneficiary. It is the first time in program history Bellevue has been ranked as the top team in the country. As the rankings note, several teams near the top still have multiple games to play, including a DeSoto, Tex. squad that holds the top spot according to MaxPreps.com and has already defeated the same Trinity team Bellevue beat to open the season. Katy, the team the Wolverines traveled to face during the 2009 season, are also in the mix. Skyline is the only other ranked team in the state at 19th.

Game Day: Seahawks head to Toronto 2012 SCHEDULE Day Date Opponent

The Seahawks head north of the border this weekend to face the Buffalo Bills in Toronto’s Rogers Centre in a matchup of two teams heading in opposite directions. The Bills have dropped five of their last seven games, including a disheartening 15-12 defeat to Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams last week in the waning moments. Buffalo enters the game averaging just more than 22 points per game on the year, good for 19th in the league. The rushing game is ranked sixth, but will be without running back Fred Jackson, who was injured in the St. Louis game. Leading rusher C.J. Spiller will likely see more carries in Jackson’s absence and the former Clemson star already has 944 yards on 144 carries this year with five scores. Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks running game is ranked fourth in the league and the scoring offense has climbed to 15th at just more than 23 points per game. “He’s been very consistent with his output and effort and style,” head coach Pete Carroll said in his Monday press conference. “He’s come out strong, fast and looked sharp every single time we’ve shown up.” Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson has entered himself into the Rookie of the Year discussion with his performances of late, including an efficient if unremarkable 7-13 day for 148 yards against the Cardinals. Carroll said the dominating performance in all three phases of the game, and especially the eight turnovers his team created, was encouraging. “It was great to see the activity, guys hauling tail to get to the ball,” he said. “We need to see if we can do it again going on the road this week.” Wilson has 20 touchdown passes on the year against only nine interceptions and has thrown for just shy of 2,500 yards.

Carroll also said leading wide receiver Sidney Rice is nursing a bruised foot and could miss the game.

Buddy (Matt Owen) performs with a group of disgruntled Santas during “Nobody Cares About Santa.” COURTESY, TRACY MARTIN BY KEEGAN PROSSER BELLEVUE REPORTER

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” For those growing up (or rather, just living) in the aughts, Buddy the Elf is a familiar character. Made famous by funny man Will Ferrell on the big screen, the story of Buddy’s journey through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and through the Lincoln Tunnel to New York City has fast become a holiday tradition for people of all ages. This month, the silly elf/man–child has made his way to the 5th Avenue Theatre, spreading Christmas cheer one song at a time as part of “Elf – The Musical.” Adapted for the stage by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin, and featuring music and lyrics by up–and–comers Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, the musical stays true to the original plot – but a carbon copy of the movie it is not. Infused with jazzy show tunes, dancing and a few sparkly tricks – it’s a story all its own. Avoiding the trap of too much cheese, this show packs laughs for kids and adults alike (much of which comes from St. Nick himself – played with spunk by Sean G. Griffin). Matt Owen’s Buddy is all you’d expect him to be – relatable, lovable and hilariously naive. And while I was a bit

concerned about how they would portray Owen as standing feet above the elves, the solution – having the rest of the cast acting on their knees – was hilarious (to say the least). He might not be Ferrell, but he’s perfect in his own right. And he can dance. And sing. And he’s full of “Sparklejollytwinklejingley” joy – which pretty much means he fantastic (in elf–speak). I’ll admit there were some things I missed – Bob Newhart’s Papa Elf, Buddy’s tangent about the “angry elf ” and Jovie’s rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” were the only major plot points missing from the stage production. But the creative team hit gold with a handful of new musical numbers – the most notable being a ragtime–y number called “Nobody Cares About Santa.” Set against a gimmick–y Chinese restaurant in the city and featuring a slew of grumpy fake Santas dancing a–la the Rockettes, is something not to be missed. There is much to be said about the fact that the 5th Avenue was the only theatre in the country licensed the rights to do this play as it is currently running on Broadway. But mainly, it’s because they’re just really great at what they do. If you’re looking for the perfect way to get into the spirit this holiday season, a ticket to “Elf ” is the gift that keeps on giving. “Elf – The Musical” runs through Dec. 31 at 5th Avenue Theatre. For showtimes and tickets go to www.5thavenue. org/show/elf-the-musical.

■ “Really Rosie”: Youth Theatre Northwest (YTN) continues its 29th season of exuberant and youthful storytelling with a tribute to beloved children’s writer Maurice Sendak, with songs by Carole King.

At 21 he chose America citizenship while working for Boeing Canada and migrated to Seattle to work for Boeing as a B17 tool engineer, shop foreman, and then manager during WWII. It’s here he met and married his wife of 67 years, Lorna McNair. After the war Ritchie put himself through college at the University of Washington where he obtained a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, then post graduate studies.

During his 38-year career at Boeing, Ritchie was the Director of Material for 10 years and Director of Engine Management for 13 years. He retired in 1982. After retiring, Ritchie and Lorna traveled for several years in the US and international destinations, and spent time at their Whidbey Island vacation home. In the fall of 1983 the Boeing Museum of Flight opened its doors. Eager to share his interest in aviation history, commercial aviation, and aircraft engines, Ritchie became one of the 21 “pioneers” volunteering as the Museum of Flight Docent Corps. He was the last of the original Museum of Flight pioneers to retire after 25 years of service. Ritchie and Lorna resided and raised their family in Clyde Hill, WA for more than 50 years.

n A King County sheriff ’s deputy shot an out-ofcontrol man in Fall City early morning on Dec. 10. The man, a homeless resident of the community, was taken to Harborview, where he later died. According to the sheriff ’s office, the man began an hours-long rant around 2:30 a.m. and became so aggressive by around 6:30 that “multiple” neighbors called 911. A deputy, a 20-year veteran of the sheriff ’s department, arrived and tried to calm the man down. At some point the man gained control of the deputy’s stun gun and rushed at him. The retreating deputy fired at least one shot from his weapon. n The communities of North Bend, Fall City and Snoqualmie plan to open a volunteer, church-driven winter shelter on Dec. 15. It will be a mobile shelter, moving between host churches, offering meals provided by volunteer church groups, and staffed with trained and paid supervisors. It will operate through Feb. 28. n A grant application written jointly by seven King County school districts has won $40 million in federal Race to the Top funds. The Auburn, Kent, Federal Way, Highline, Renton, Seattle and Tukwila school districts will use the grant in a collaborative effort to dramatically improve education in South Seattle and South King County. n The City of Sammamish will honor one of its heroes Dec. 18 when it renames a section of 233rd Ave. N.E. after Stan Chapin, long-time school resource officer at Eastlake High School and Inglewood Junior High. Chapin, a member of the Sammamish Police Department, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes Jan. 30, 2012 at the age of 61. His death sent ripples through a stunned community. n The Issaquah Schools Foundation’s marathon “All in for Kids” annual fund campaign raised $366,805, surpassing its goal of $330,000. The campaign, which began in August, culminated at the district administration building when 300 high school students gathered to call more than 9,700 parents on the evenings of Nov. 13 and 15.
