Delay school bonds and listen to voters Consultant says outreach effort yields positive results, should continue before decision is made By Megan Managan

mmanagan@mi-reporter.com

Triangle Associates, a consultant firm hired to conduct public outreach to gather input on how to rebuild or expand Island schools, said that the community is yet to be convinced of the need for or scale of any new school facilities. But the renewed outreach efforts have been positively received and are helping to rebuild trust in the school district. In a report given to the Mercer Island School District last Thursday, Triangle Associates said that before any decision is made regarding another bond issue, it recommends that the district extend the deci-

MISD board meeting Thursday, Dec. 13

Condos — or the lack thereof — is the story for November real estate on Mercer Island. Of the 114 homes and condos available for sale in November, just four were condos, down from 19 condos a year ago. Just two condos were added to the Island inventory in November. Across Western Washington, the numbers of closed sales and selling prices both rose during November versus a year ago, while the selection continued to shrink. As a rule, fewer homes or condos are offered for sale as the holidays near. According to the latest market review by the Northwest Multiple Listing Service, last month’s falloff was less than what some industry veterans anticipated. But perhaps everything has already sold. The number of final sales for November was a record. For the 21 counties within the NWMLS, there were reported 6,522 pending sales last month — the highest total for November in six years.

Traffic counts will inform school planning near high school block By Megan Managan

Driving through major Island intersections during peak commute times, or when a special event is scheduled, traffic is sure to be heavy. While drivers know that in theory, now there is data to back it up. On Dec. 3, the Mercer Island School District Board of Directors received a report on traffic volumes done by a Seattle transportation consultant, Transpo, which looked at traffic near and around the district’s North Mercer Campus. Traffic counts were collected in October 2012 from Oct. 17 through Oct. 25,

the wider community before it makes any decision.” Islander Trevor Hart who opposed the last bond issue said that Triangle’s recommendation to do more work with voters was a safe conclusion, but a sound one. He said however, that the list of options and what they include i.e. the pool or additional STEM funding, need to be laid out more clearly. Triangle does say in the report that progress has been made in that at least two rebuilding options can be ruled out, as no one appeared to favor those. A full copy of the report is available on the MISD website (under the Dec. 10 agenda, Triangle’s Final Report). The district’s Board of Directors held a special meeting on Monday, Dec. 10, after Reporter deadline. On Dec. 13 the board will have its only regular meeting of December in the City Council Chambers.

looking at the hourly traffic patterns on different days of the week, and included Friday, Oct. 19, the night of the homecoming football game at the high school. Transpo also collected data at Island Crest Way and S.E. 40th Street; Island Crest Way, Merrimount Drive and S.E. 44th Street, as well as East Mercer Way and S.E. 36th Street. Traffic along S.E. 40th Street during a normal weekday is fairly standard, with peaks during the morning and evening commute times. During school day afternoons, however, there are two peak periods. The data shows that evening commute peak hour volumes on S.E. 40th Street are approximately 100 to 200 vehicles per hour higher than those occurring during school afternoon peak hour.

Yet, on Oct. 17, the same day as a Seattle Sounders game in downtown Seattle, showed a spike in cars along S.E. 40th Street, adding 200 vph more from 6 to 7 p.m. than the average from the same time earlier in the week. Since 2005, the last time a traffic study was done, tolls along State Route 520 have been put into place, affecting traffic along some Island streets and intersections. In the mornings, the largest increase was at the intersection of S.E. 40th and 86th Avenue S.E. with 14 percent more cars, while Island Crest Way and Merrimount dropped 8 percent. The afternoon commute changed the most. There was a 48 percent increase at 86th Avenue and S.E. 42nd Street, where just 315 cars traveled in 2005, jumping to 465 cars in 2012. The intersection of 92nd Avenue and S.E. 42nd Street also jumped, increasing 39 percent, while both the intersections at S.E. 40th Street and 92nd Avenue and S.E. 40th and 86th Avenue increased by 25 percent.

Just in time for the holidays, three topiary deer cultivated in Oregon have taken up residence in downtown Mercer Island. Named “Gazing,” these living sculptures will be permanent residents as part of the Mercer Island Arts Council’s addition to the Lid Sculpture Park. Each deer is grown from two moonglow junipers and will live indefinitely with proper care. Please note that these beautiful but fragile creatures are only for appreciating — not for playing with or climbing on. not have a similar impact. For example, a new K-5 elementary school on the North Mercer Campus would only cause “minimal change to the current existing trip generation.” While a new school would displace some parking for the high school, it would not require additional driving lanes. With a 650 student middle school, the morning peak hour would likely include 351 trips with 193 coming and 158 leaving, while the study found around 202 trips are likely for the school afternoon peak. With this data, the district will conduct another phone survey this month. To see the report, visit the MISD website at www.mercerislandschools.org.

How many walk, drive to MIHS Since 2010, MISD has given a survey to students at Mercer Island High School asking them how they get to school. The report is required as part of the PEAK agreement. According to the report, 1,261 students were surveyed, equaling 86 percent of the school population. Students answered if they carpooled to school, drove alone, took the bus, walked or biked. • Fifty percent (636 students) said they carpool

to school; 20 percent (246 students) said they drove alone. • Eighteen percent (225 students) took the bus. • 11 percent (136 students) walked and 1 percent (18 students) biked. Compared to 2011, the number of students in each category increased except walking, which went down from 13.1 percent in 2011 to 10.8 in 2012. Of the students who live in the walk zone, 178 said they walked or biked, while 135 drove. In 2011, 209 walked and biked while 120 drove.

etc.,” the study said. The consultants found that while Islanders are passionate about their schools, “some citizens do not have a clear understanding of how overcrowding impacts the quality of schools.” Others, it continued, “do not see a sense of urgency due to the fact that schools buildings benefited from renovations in the mid-1990s and are not ‘broken.’ Other community members do not see the detrimental effect of have a few kids in portables.” Dr. Gary Plano, Superintendent of Island schools, agrees. He hopes for the outreach to expand beyond those who choose to participate in meetings and comment on websites. “I support Triangle’s conclusions and agree with their recommendation to continue to test solutions dealing with overcrowding,” he said. “I am hopeful that the School Board will seek a statistically-accurate sample of

More time I

n just two dozen pages, the Seattle communications consultant, Triangle Associates, plainly laid out the situation facing the Mercer Island School District Board of Directors in obtaining voter approval to fund the rebuilding of Mercer Island public schools. Their key recommendation is for the school district to hold back on moving forward too quickly with a new bond measure — whether it is for a single school, the merely palatable 1.b option or any other iteration. Any new bond proposal at this point would likely fail again. Islanders are not ready — they are still recovering from the shock of the unimaginable amount of money they were asked to accept last time. Instead, the board must continue to reach out and rebuild trust within the community for perceived missteps regarding the management of school assets — real or imagined — whether they are material to the issue at hand or not. And following that, bring them along into the realities of what a 21st century education is all about. The first sentence in the Executive Summary states that Islanders, while caring deeply about schools and the education of Island youth here, do not understand key elements of what is needed. In particular, the report says that “some citizens do not have a clear understanding of how overcrowding impacts the quality of schools.” School district facilities are 20 percent over capacity. More than 4,600 students are squeezing into space that was designed to house 3,900. Often heard is the fact that Islander students continue to excel despite less-than-adequate facilities. Something is working right, they say. Still left by the wayside is the concept that the need for new facilities goes beyond providing physical space. A 21st century education is needed for 21st century jobs and living. Who knew that the real teaching job for the school district would be to convince Islanders that schools and teaching have changed dramatically?

‘Some do not have a clear understanding of how overcrowding affects schools.’

TALK

To the editor ‘Crazy quilt’ of parking does not make Town Center friendly

transform the Town Center, they need to take a multi-decade view of how, over time, the basic layout might be adjusted to better serve everyone’s interest in a more vibrant — rather than tolerable — downtown. Without that holistic, long-term view, we seem destined to tinkering around the edges, to ongoing frustration, and to a downtown that tries to look shoppable but really isn’t. Seldom-used benches slapped on the sidewalk, more plantings and more signs pointing us to pigeonhole, below-building parking won’t get us there. Marc Berejka

The recent commentary in the Reporter on the Town Center’s inadequate parking has been helpful. I’ve lived on the Island for a decade now. Throughout, city leaders have stressed the importance of making the Town Center more shopper-friendly and walkable. Despite much new construction, little real progress has been made. As others have commented, the Town Center remains a crazy quilt of ample private parking lots, cloistered below-building lots, and a few difficult-to-navigate public spaces. Without a friendly parking environment, you simply cannot have a commercially successful and appealing downtown.

It helps retain and create local jobs and supports our unique businesses that are an important part of Mercer Island’s distinct character. Shopping local is not only important to strengthen the local economy and keep businesses on Mercer Island; it also keeps the sales tax dollars here, which help pay for services such as public safety, streets and parks. In addition, it supports local nonprofits; studies show that small-business owners contribute as much as 350 percent more in donations then do most larger businesses. Also, remember the Shop Local Coupon Book — sponsored by the Chamber and participating businesses — that was available at the farmers market, Chamber office and many businesses this past summer? It has been a huge success, and as we enter the holiday season, we would like to point out that most of the coupons are still valid and welcome at participating businesses.

Your choice to “Shop Local” supports this wonderful place we call Mercer Island.

Ritchie William Tilson

Husband, father, engineer, woodworking craftsman. Born in 1919, Ritchie William Tilson was raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. 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. He worked as an engineer at Standard Oil in San Francisco, but soon returned to Seattle with his wife to work for Boeing. 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. He was active at Bellevue and University Presbyterian churches as a Sunday school teacher, deacon, and elder. He died November 29, 2012 at the age of 93 surrounded by his family. He was preceded in death by his sister, Cynthia, of Vancouver BC. He is survived by his wife Lorna and their four children Wayne (Lori); Dale (Joan); Jean (Paul Wiegand), and Doreen (Greg Farrar), as well as eight grandchildren (Erin, Lisa, Ken, John, Emily, Mallory, Joe, Megan), and one great grandson (Alex).

Public invited to comment on state transportation priorities By Reporter Staff

A new online survey launched this week invites Washington citizens to share their ideas about the state’s transportation priorities and how to pay for them. This January, the Legislature and governor will be faced with tough choices on how the state’s growing transportation needs will be met. A combination of changing driving habits, increased vehicle fuel efficiency and increasing numbers of electric vehicles makes the gas tax an unsustainable transportation revenue source for the long-term. To help decision makers, the Washington

Hyatt

State Transportation Commission launched a statewide survey seeking public opinion about transportation funding and priorities. Washington residents who have joined the Voice of Washington State (VOWS) survey panel will receive an email inviting them to take an online survey. The results will be reported to the governor and Legislature at the start of the 2013 session. VOWS is an online public input program utilizing short surveys on transportation. The survey panel is open to all Washington state residents. To participate in the current survey, sign up at www. voiceofwashingtonsurvey. org by Dec. 17. Throughout the coming year, members of the VOWS survey panel will be invited to participate in online surveys on a variety of transportation topics.

Caring for pets this holiday season By MIPD Officer Rob Jira Special to the Reporter

We at the Mercer Island Police Department want to make sure that you get to enjoy the holidays with all of your family members … especially your pets! This month I wanted to give everyone some tips on what to do if your pet is ever lost, stolen, or runs away. Tips to best prepare your pet for an emergency or accidental “escape”: • Have your pets licensed and microchipped. Keep your pet’s medical/chip/ license information updated as it changes and in a location where you can immediately access it in case of an emergency. • Make sure your pet is wearing a collar and the tag has up-to-date contact information. • Have emergency food and water set aside for your pet in case of a natural disaster emergency. Keep

this food and water with the emergency items that you keep for your family. Have enough food and water to last at least three days; 7-10 is recommended. Also, have crates/carriers that are easily accessible and ready. • Keep a computer record of your pet’s medical/chip/ license history with the emergency food. Send a copy of this information to an out-of-area friend/family member in case something happens to you. • Have your pet neutered/ spayed to prevent the urge to wander as well as reducing aggressive behavior. If your pet is lost or you have found a lost pet: • If you have found a pet, take it to a vet clinic or the Humane Society and have it scanned. • Call Island pet care clinics to report the lost/found pet. Here are numbers for clinics located on Mercer Island. Mercer Island Veterinary Clinic: (206) 232-0333 Mercy Vet: (206) 2327667 Island Cats Veterinary Hospital: (206) 232-2837

• Make flyers with a photo of the pet, if possible, and contact information. Post these flyers at vet clinics, stop signs, intersections and park areas immediately. • Post ads on Craigslist, the Mercer Island Reporter or other sites, leaving out at least one identifying feature for security purposes. • Call the Humane Society and Animal Control, especially if a lost pet is not licensed or chipped.

Mercer Island man convicted of tax fraud By Megan Managan

mmanagan@mi-reporter.com

A Mercer Island resident was sentenced by the United States District Court of Western Washington to five years of probation and ordered to pay restitution of $154,309 on Nov. 30 after being found guilty of tax fraud. David Murphy, who owned a credit consulting business, NW Credit Consultants, Inc., was charged this past January with four counts of filing a false tax return. Murphy pled guilty to one of those charges. The charges stem from returns filed in 2006 for the years 2001-2004, when Murphy falsified tax documents for his credit consulting business. Also in 2006, Murphy approved and filed the business’s tax returns for 2001, 2002 and 2003, all of which included false information that the IRS found. In 2009, Murphy filed an amended return for those four years. The amended returns showed much different numbers in relation to the advertising expenses in the original returns. The estimated tax loss for those years was calculated by the IRS to be $154,309. “Mr. Murphy, as sole owner, and principal operator of his business, certainly knew that the tax returns he finally filed in 2006 contained materially false information, yet he repeatedly stood by those clearly fraudulent returns. Subsequently, he filed amended returns that also understated the taxes he owed,” said the sentencing memo. The returns were all prepared by Albert Decker, who owned Accountable Business Services in Arizona. Decker pled guilty to charges unrelated to Murphy’s and served a jail sentence and probation in Arizona. In the sentencing motion, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said they recommended a term of incarceration followed by home detention, and that Murphy should be required to pay restitution in the amount of owed taxes. While the court sentenced him to five years of probation, Murphy will be monitored by a GPS device for seven months.

condos | FROM 1 and condos listed for sale on the Island fell by more than 20 percent in November, down from 114 for sale a year ago, to 90. Just 20 new homes or condos were added in November. The number of closed sales for the month was 12 down from 30 a year ago. The number of pending sales was up by five, over a year ago, to 28. The median sale price for the month was $662,000 — about even with last year, with the median price up just about 3 percent. “There continues to

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 | Page 9 be extremely low inventory levels and high buyer demand, which is causing multiple offers in many local areas,” reported OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate. He also noted a “definite uptick” in the number of cash buyers, “many of which are investors.” Commenting on the expected dip in activity, Jacobi said it “was less than we usually experience during this time of year.” Based on the current combination of sparse inventory and high buyer demand, Jacobi said those who are considering selling are encouraged to “list their homes sooner rather

than later” in order to take advantage of unique market conditions. The number of new listings added to the inventory of homes for sale in NWMLS counties fell by 12 percent. Inventory, which typically shrinks during the holidays, fell by more than 30 percent from 12 months ago. The NWMLS condo inventory is at half the prior year’s levels. In King County, single family homes that closed during November commanded the highest median price at $385,000 (up 19.7 percent), edging out San Juan County’s median selling price of $375,000.

Two new 4-year degrees at Bellevue College By Reporter Staff

Bellevue College received permission last week from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges to develop two new bachelor’s degree programs: in Nursing and Information Systems and Technology. BC decided to add degrees in these fields after labor market research indicated a growing need in the Puget Sound region for workers with at least a bachelor’s degree for both nursing (BSN) and information technology (IT). A BSN is already required at area hospitals, including Seattle Children’s, Swedish and UW Medical Centers. Statistics indicate that a bachelor’s degree in IT is now considered the minimum level of education for a variety of IT jobs. The first of its kind in the state, IT students at BC can specialize in: application development, business intelligence; systems administration; and information security. There are three existing four-year degrees at BC: Healthcare Technology and Management; Radiology and Imaging Sciences, and Interior Design. Two more degrees, biological and environmental technology and data analytics, have been proposed. They could begin in 2014.

The Islanders will take on Liberty in a KingCo conference meet on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at Mary Wayte Pool. The meet is set to begin at 3:30 p.m. water polo, Rain City hosts a 12U/Novice training on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. until noon at the Mercerwood Shore Club.

Community news ‘Dessert Before Dinner’ fundraiser to include harpist If you drive slowly enough past the corner of Island Crest Way and 82nd Avenue, you might be lucky enough to catch the faint strain of melodious harp music wafting by your windows. The music comes from renowned harpist Leslie McMichael, who can be seen and heard working passionately with her students at Mercer Island Music week in and week out throughout the year. McMichael, who lives on Vashon Island, is a graduate of Wellesley College, an accomplished Suzuki instructor, and is thrilled to be doing what she loves for a living. In addition to teaching on the Island, McMichael is a member of the Suzuki Academy faculty at the Music Center of the Northwest; has served as president of the Seattle Chapter of the American Harp Society; and has adjudicated at numerous festivals. She was recently commissioned by the Northwest Film Forum to compose and perform an original score for the 1924 silent film, “Peter Pan,” which she toured the country with. On top of her busy teaching and touring schedule, McMichael finds time to organize and run benefit concerts for local charities. A recent concert featuring over 20 harpists playing in unison raised money for Youth Care, a nonprofit agency serving Seattle’s homeless youth. Attendees at this coming Sunday’s “Dessert Before Dinner” will have an opportunity to treat themselves to some of this atmosphere of beauty and joy as McMichael and a number of the instructors and students from Mercer Island Music and Musical Mind Studios collaborate with the Mercer Island Parks and Recreation Department to perform a festive concert. The event runs from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center, and includes fine desserts as well as a silent auction. All money raised will go toward supporting the work of Mercer Island Parks and Recreation Department community events. For tickets to “Dessert Before Dinner,” call (206) 275-7609 or go to mypark-

Kix and Spinz fitness center opens on South end A new fitness center has opened in the South end shopping center. Classes at Kix and Spinz started this week. Newly married couple Aron and Yaffa Penski opened the business out of their shared passion for health and exercise. An official grand opening will be held in January. After holding fitness camps in the summer, Kix and Spinz now has a new permanent space at 8451 S.E. 68th Street, Suite 105. Personal training sessions are offered along with functional interval group training sessions for adults and kids — tailored to each age level. Fitness for kids, age 10 and up, includes everything from everyday movements and strength training to core, cardio and gymnastics endurance, complete with a climbing rope and agility ladders. “Kids really need a place to come to get their fitness and health needs met,” Yaffa said. “We really want to offer a place where people can take care of themselves. ” Aron is a personal trainer and Yaffa’s experience is in public health, and both are certified in youth fitness. Aron is also certified in adult fitness. A MIHS graduate, he grew up on the Island, and now Yaffa’s

three young children attend Island schools. “We are bringing our passion for a healthy lifestyle to the community and families,” Yaffa said. Class times are 9:30 a.m., 12 and 5:30 p.m. for adults, and 4:30 p.m. for kids, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Personal appointments may be scheduled between classes. Kix and Spinz can be reached at (206) 257-1931.

IMS student starts online hat business Thirteen-year-old Islander Marcus Schiller, along with his parents, has launched Hattachables. com, an online store where he sells his own invention: hat accessories. Like many people, Schiller enjoys expressing himself by wearing different baseball hats. “Because the price of having multiple hats adds up, I wanted a way to change the hats that I had,” he said. Schiller thought of a unique solution for wearing the same hat over and over again but making it look different. With over 70 different pins available (and more coming), Hattachable founders say there are a variety of ways to express yourself. Schiller is a hard worker both in school and in sports. Recently, he was honored as “Student of the Trimester” at Islander Middle School. He is part of a family familiar with entrepreneurship. His parents have owned

Volunteers wanted for bird count on Dec. 29 Mercer Island will be participating in the annual Seattle Audubon Christmas Bird Count on Saturday, Dec. 29. The count coordinator for the Island is Judith Roan. She will sign up birding enthusiasts to assist in the count. Roan may be reached at jroan@fhcrc.org or 236-0511. Compilation data going back to 1972 indicates that

the Island averages 65 species during a count period. Parks, open spaces and the shoreline are scanned for birds and tallied.

Hess, a native of Mercer Island, graduated from Mercer Island High School and performed with Youth Theatre Northwest, Seattle Children’s Theatre and the MIHS Drama Club.

In New York, Hess performed improv and sketch regularly at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. At UCB-NY, she wrote and starred in “The Palin Family All Star Revue & Election Spectacular” and “We Kate Shelly,” which Time Out NY called “silly, adroit, and unique all at once.” The review described “Murder Abbey” as a take on all Masterpiece Theatre costume dramas: “[Hess] mashes together ‘Downton Abbey’ and an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, paying homage not just to Downton but to the larger Masterpiece brand.” An excerpt from Murder Abbey can be viewed at https://vimeo. com/47388543.
