Community center still needs subsidy Center serves thousands, but is yet to be profitable By Reporter Staff

The Mercer Island Community and Event Center, formerly known as the Community Center at Mercer View, has done well over the past five years. But is yet to become profitable. According to the annual report presented to the City Council on Monday evening, the facility still received a “subsidy” from the city. At the study session at the City Council meeting on Monday, city staff showed that the center — in its fifth year of operation — is making money, yet not enough to pay for itself. The facility, however, has made

strides toward profitability while serving more people over more hours and meeting other service goals. The 2010 revenue of nearly $500,000 represents an increase of just 2.5 percent over 2009, but is closing on nearly doubling the earnings made in the first year of the facility operation in 2006. The 2010 earnings cut the amount of subsidy that the city expected to pay from $349,000 to $273,000 in 2009; a savings of $78,000 to the city or more than 20 percent. The reduced subsidy for 2010, however, is still higher than that paid out in 2009 of $245,000. According to the report presented to the Council, the facility has expanded it hours, cut costs

and provided programs and services to thousands of Islanders and visitors. The facility hosted some 7,100 participants in its programs, more than a quarter of whom were seniors. The open gym time was increased to 638 hours annually — the facility hosted a total of 19,025 program hours for the year. Other highlights include a public art gallery that sold more than $5,000 worth of art for the year. Room rentals for 2010 were the biggest money maker for the facility, representing nearly 80 of the revenue. Over 3,500 private meetings or gatherings were held at the CCMV this past year. The community center has become a place for communitywide celebrations. Numerous community events include the Rotary Run Half Marathon, the city’s annual Leap for Green event, the 100th anniversary celebration of the Alaska-Yukon Exhibition,

The 21st Century Planning Committee, volunteers charged by the Mercer Island School District Board of Directors to come up with a plan to replace the Island’s aging schools, made their recommendation to the board on Thursday night at a special public meeting. Now, it is up to the board to decide which plan to run with, and present it to the public before placing a bond on a future ballot. Overcrowding is now a reality at Mercer Island schools, particularly at the elementary level. Currently, about 600 kids are in portables, mainly at West Mercer — enough to fill a new school. The majority of the committee, which has met for a total of

We made a conscious

decision to make it accessible.” Perhaps the most important and somewhat surprising finding in the 2010 report was that the center and its staff have become what the report terms “an information clearing-

house,” for residents. The facility staff managed over 100,000 landline telephone calls in 2010, an increase of more than 40 percent over the previous year. The 42,744-squarefoot facility was opened in December of 2005 on

the site of the old community center, the former Mercer View Elementary School. The school, which was constructed in 1960, closed in 1980.

A different view of post office crisis

“Mail volume fell this year to only 167 billion pieces delivered, down 22 percent from four years ago, he said, partly because Americans are paying bills online and sending electronic invitations instead of paper ones.” Also present at the rally, at Reichert’s office, was Rick Horner of the National Association of Letter Carriers. He said members are opposed to stopping service on Saturday, one costcutting measure that has been proposed. “It’s a slippery slope,” Horner said. “It would be a relatively small cost savings. They (advertisers) would (have to) find other means to send out their information, jeopardizing their businesses.” Horner said house resolution 137 calls on Congress to maintain a six-day delivery.

Thrift shop success due to volunteers, community

sland educators and parents know that there are many skills necessary to be successful in school and life. Here is a sample of how schools are partnering with parents outside the classroom to help students learn how to keep healthy, organized and prepared for life ahead. At Islander Middle School, the annual “Where’s My Stuff� workshop is a boon to parents and kids who need to learn how to manage their time. The interactive workshop, to be held at the school on Oct. 12, is to help establish daily habits that will ensure that the homework, if completed, will actually make it to school and emphasizes preparation and planning ahead. At Lakeridge Elementary School, a return appearance from UW parenting expert and author Laura Kastner is also designed to help parents guide and teach children valuable habits for time management skills and impulse control. She will also focus on how to improve “brain fitness� through eating right, staying positive and the value of a good night’s sleep. She calls her talk, “Teachable skills for success and life,� or perhaps more aptly, “Executive Advantage.� Her talk is set for Oct. 10. West Mercer Elementary School parents and educators held a “Walk to School Day� combined with a healthy allschool breakfast, today, Oct. 5. Part of the experience was organizing groups to walk or bike together. Last month, Island Park Elementary held a set of farmers markets where students sold produce from their own gardens at the school. The students worked together to plan and tend the gardens and worked at the ‘market’ to sell their goods. Pure community building with a return on investment. Would all of this work without parents and guardians? Probably not well. The PTAs at each school plan, staff and coordinate with teachers. If needed, the MI Schools Foundation pays the bills. These efforts, along with the high test scores and student involvement, are probably yet another reason that dozens of colleges send their marketing reps to Mercer Island High School year after year. They are looking for top students who are smart, but those who can also make it on their own, away from home, at college.

“From ‘Where’s My Stuff’ to the value of a good night’s sleep — students learn life skills.�

Thank you, Mercer Island Reporter, for your story on the Mercer Island Thrift Shop. It truly is a gold mine for all that it funds and all the opportunities it provides to Islanders. And thank you to the thousands of Island families and individuals who donate to the thrift shop. We could not do the work of YFS without your support. The thrift shop is much more to the Mercer Island community than a convenient location to recycle and shop for high-quality used goods while supporting human services on the Island. In addition to the quality shopping experience the thrift shop offers to Islanders and Island visitors, it also provides important community services such as internships for high school students, entry level employment for individuals with special needs and a community service opportunity for many. At the heart of the thrift shop’s success are its volunteers. Those who give of their time to support the thrift shop range in age from middle school students to Islanders over 90 — each individual brings their own unique skill or expertise. Some volunteers have been with us for over 10, 20 and even 30 years. Thrift shop volunteers are an amazing group of Islanders who are committed to their community and to supporting the well-being of their neighbors. They possess a level of knowledge and expertise that has made the thrift shop the store it is today. Our volunteers alone are a gold mine. When you donate goods or shop at the thrift shop, you are playing a

Emmanuel event about clean water worldwide Here in the Pacific Northwest, we have countless words for the wet stuff that falls from the sky. Not only do we take it for granted, many curse the season that arrives as regular as rain each fall. No matter what you call it, water is essential for all life on Earth. But for more than one billion people, access to clean, safe drinking water is simply unattainable. This means that families must fetch the water they need for cooking, bathing and drinking from polluted lakes and rivers that are often far from their homes. Without adequate access to clean water, the repercussions for health worldwide are grave. One child dies every 15 seconds from a waterrelated disease, more than from any other cause in the world.

Albert Willem Struyvenberg Albert Willem Struyvenberg was born in Rotterdam, Holland on October 10, 1920, and passed away peacefully on August 29, 2011, after leading a full and fascinating life that spanned three continents. As a young man in his 20’s, he studied the violin, managed a coal yard in Rotterdam, was a sea captain, and took part in the Dutch Resistance during the Nazi occupation. After the war, tiring of Holland’s rain and gloom, he took a job with a Dutch trading firm in Singapore during the time of the Malayan Emergency’s guerilla war. After a several years as a bachelor, he met the love of his life, Barbara Hassbach, while they were both vacationing in Taormina, Italy. After a storybook romance, carried out via telegrams and letters, Barbara travelled to Singapore from Germany and they married there. They both loved the climate and exoticism of the tropics, and three years later, when Al’s company wanted to transfer him back to Holland, they took the bold step of immigrating to the United States instead. First in Portland, Oregon and then in Seattle, Al was a successful businessman and built up his company, Interwood, into a thriving, well respected, import and export firm that traded mainly with the Far East. During their years in Portland and later on Mercer Island in Seattle, Al and Barbara raised their family in a succession of beautiful homes, travelled, and enjoyed lives blessed with good fortune and love, good health and happiness. When Al retired, they moved to Sisters, Oregon.There they enjoyed many more fine years; hiking, traveling – particularly to Hawaii - and pursuing their respective interests. Al was a great lover of classical music and was always intellectually engaged and aware to the very end of his life. The study of investment strategy remained his passion however, and he spent many years devising technical commodity trading methods. We will sorely miss his immense optimism, good humor, love of life and genuine interest in everyone he met. Al was truly one of a kind. His wife, Barbara, passed away in January of this year and we hope that they are once again reunited. He is survived by his children: Eva, and her son Max; Peter, and his wife Robin and daughter Sarah; and Anne, her husband Kirk, and their children Sean and Cara. Remembrances may be made to a charity of choice. 529402

FACILITIES | FROM 1 150 hours, supports building three new elementary schools on the properties that the three schools are on now. To build a fourth elementary school means finding property to build on. The committee agrees that a six-plus acre site is needed — and there are not many of those available on the Island. A fourth elementary school would likely have to be an urban school, if that’s even possible. Committee member Toby Suhm said the real issue of finding a new site is that it would delay the process, because even if they found a piece of land, it wouldn’t be without raising tremendous public issues. Sequencing is another issue — where to put kids while schools are being built. The committee had no clear recommendation on how to make this easiest on the students, but some members support building the new Islander Middle School on the IMS track as the first school, then utilizing the old IMS school as a swing school while new elementary schools are built on

their existing sites. Others support using Lakeridge Elementary as the swing school to alleviate the loss of the IMS track and field. Most school districts, the report states, do not have the luxury of a swing school, so building in place while school is in session is not uncommon, although some of the committee and board members thought the noise would affect students. While there is no disagreement that all of the district’s buildings are becoming obsolete for 21st century learning, there are other fears, earthquakes being one of them. Committee member Frank Morrison said the remodeling done to the buildings in the ’90s lacks adequate lateral earthquake support by today’s codes. Several members of the committee are engineers. They echoed Morrison’s concerns about earthquakes. They agreed that with more knowledge of the geology of the Puget Sound area, and given the earthquake in Japan, it’s a real wake-up call. With a fault running through the middle of Mercer Island, upgrading the existing buildings for seismicity can be done, but

it’s expensive. In fact, the committee found that you get 60 percent of the school for 80 percent of the cost with a remodel as opposed to building new. Because of the age and infrastructure of the existing schools, the committee is recommending that the elementary schools and middle school be replaced within the next 10-12 years, and the high school in 20-30 years. In addition, it was strongly recommended that all the new schools be built to the standard required for an emergency shelter. Right now the only emergency shelter on the Island is the community center. Regarding the North Mercer buildings, which includes Youth Theater Northwest, the report states that they will need to be demolished in the near future for safety reasons. “The North Mercer buildings maybe have two to five years left,” Morrison said. If there were a roof leak or some other major issue in any of the North Mercer buildings, they would come down. There is little support to use that space of the “mega-block” for another school. The mega-block is home to the high school, PEAK, the administration building and stadium. The mega-block needs to remain flexible to support

the future high school, retain scarce field space and support future community partnerships, the report reads. The committee also recommended committing dollars now to begin planning a new MIHS on the mega-block. The district’s current bonds pay off in three to five years. Most of the committee support a larger bond over a longer period of time, to fund the three elementary schools and IMS, giving the best value to Mercer Island taxpayers. Dean Mack, executive director of business services for the district, said a larger bond is more predictable and a better deal. “It is predicted that economic recovery will be slow, three to five years,” Mack said. He said it’s a good time to build new schools because construction costs are low. Morrison said it’s time to bring the public in on the discussion. Suhm said his neighbors, whom he has talked to, who don’t have children in the district anymore, think the schools look good to them. But he also said that many seniors he knows do understand the need. Kris Kelsay, the facilita-

Although talk of what 21st century schools look like — with larger common spaces — not “cells and bells,” committee member

Hillary Benson summed it up the best. “The most resonating message is going to be about overcrowding,” she said. Now it’s up to the board to decide how to proceed. Board member Brian Emanuels said that it would be best to get public input before the board throws a bond out to voters.

College interview can be an opportunity I am a senior who is applying to college this fall. I was offered an optional interview and wonder if I should bother accepting. I don’t think there are any optional choices when it comes to college admissions. This holds true for interviews as well as optional essays. This is one case where less is not

better. Yes, you want to have an interview if for no other reason than to show them your interest in their school. I like to compare schools to suitors, both of which require some wooing and attention. Schools need to know that you are truly interested in attending their school if accepted, as their yield is one factor

that influences ratings. I always like to ask whether or not the interview is evaluative. An informative interview simply allows the student the chance to ask questions and learn more about the school, while an evaluative interview is considered part of the admission process. Though you should

come prepared regardless, want students to have done understanding their “homethe weight of work” about a the interview On College school before will at least help they interview you put it all so that they do into perspecnot ask questive.

Interviewing is a real skill and one that students generally find awkward and uncomfortable. I have met many a student who falls mute when asked the question: “Tell me about

yourself.” I find that if a student can enthusiastically share what he/she included on the resume, he/she will come across as genuine and engaging. Students should be themselves and should not try to answer the questions based on what they believe the interviewer wants to hear. If the students are clear on what they are looking for in a school and can speak articulately to that, they will make a favorable impression.

Think back to the first time you realized that you were in complete control of the life you wanted to lead. And more importantly, you felt like you would be able to meet and even exceed the challenges ahead. Successes in life build upon each other and gain momentum as you get older, and they bring with them much more responsibility. This is why it is so important we lay the foundation our children need now, so they understand they have a solid support structure in place and realize they can rely on themselves as adulthood approaches.

women improve lives for themselves, their children and our community.

This same concept is the reason why QFC is so proud to partner with the YWCA as our Checkstand Charity of the Month during October. It’s all about creating a support structure and stability where it did not previously exist.

The YWCA also remains one of the largest and most experienced providers of housing and supportive services to women and families in our community. YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish owns some 693 apartment units and manages an additional 267 units throughout King and Snohomish counties. YWCA Family Village at Issaquah, an innovative 146-unit affordable-housing community on the Eastside, is among the YWCA’s recent housing ventures.

Helping athletes back on their feet Bellevue holds off Islanders By Megan Managan

mmanagan@mi-reporter.com

It starts with an injury. The kind that keeps elite athletes up at night. Maybe it’s only a small thing, but enough to derail years of work, and postpone goals being met. For the last 30 years, 15 in Bellevue, Neil Chasan has helped athletes of all types — professionals to weekend warriors — come back from what ails them. At the Sports Reaction Center in Bellevue, located at 1750 112th Avenue, Chasan and a team of physical therapists work with all levels of athletes. The company uses cutting edge technology to help fix the problem, and spot things before they happen. One of the company’s current strategies is partnering with local athletic groups, and working with the team from start to finish, providing services at games, practices, and in the office as well. “For example, we cover five rugby teams at every game and every practice,” said Chasan. SRC works closely with several other groups in the area like VO2 Multisports, helping the triathletes, and Club Northwest’s track and cross country teams. “As part of our relationship with the rugby teams, we see them here in our office for bumps and bruis-

Bellevue used three rushing touchdowns from running back John Nguyen and three field goals from kicker Mitch Johnson to hold off Mercer Island (3-2) 43-28 on Friday night and move to 5-0 on the season. The Wolverines controlled things throughout the first half, pushing their lead to 12-0 before the Mercer Island offense got untracked and found the end zone when quarterback Jeff Lindquist hit Eric Stefanchick for a three-yard touchdown pass on fourth and goal to tighten things back up at 12-7. But it was more Nguyen on the next Bellevue possession as the 180-pound junior scored on his fourth carry of the drive after being set up by a 49-yard dash from junior Ari Morales. “Johnny ran hard,” Bellevue head coach Butch Goncharoff said of Nguyen, who finished with 81 yards on 17 carries and the three scores in the game. The Wolverines would get

Similarly, they use us for basic screening, helping their coaches plan programming. We help them get back to competition — the multisport athletes are interesting because they are swimming, biking and running injuries, which are all different. They are so active and so busy, we really

And we think it’s time you found out why.

have to keep them tuned up. We also cover the Club Northwest Track and Field and Cross Country program which is based in Seattle, but we cover all of their elite athletes.” Chasan, who lives on Mercer Island, has also done work with some of the many youth teams on the Island. Most recently, Colin Rigby, the company’s marketing director and soccer player from Mercer Island, helped teach the Mercer Island Youth Soccer club coaches how to identify concussions. “One of the things we’ve done — we’ve actually done this with the Mercer Island Youth Soccer Club — is to coach all of their youth coaches on how to do baseline screenings for concussions,” said Chasan. He said they take the baseline testing for concussions one step farther, using the Impact test, but also using other technology to test dual function, like walking and moving around objects as another baseline

for athletes. “Every kid is unique and the concussion pattern needs to be evaluated differently,” said Chasan. “You can’t compare one kid to another, and you can only compare a kid to themselves. Focus on baseline testing in paramount. We go one step further to add this new technology to add the dual function, counting and walking.” Outside of specific work with organizations, the clinic offers a full range of physical therapy technology, including some of the newest available, which attracts high-level clientele. Steeple chaser Letiwe Patton, originally from Zimbabwe, was working on qualifying for the Zimbabwean national team, in the hopes of competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, when she hurt her hamstring. Since then she has been working with SRC in the AlterG. The special treadmill pumps 400

a pair of touchdown catches from Nathan Derider and an interception by Budda Baker to extend their lead all the way to 43-7 before the Islanders could find their stride. “I saw Dakota (Jones) had him underneath,” Baker said. “I just stayed on top and got the ball.” The sophomore added another interception on the game’s final play. “Budda made some plays,” defensive coordinator James Hasty said. “He’s a hell of a little player.” Mercer Island finally found some momentum when Lindquist plunged in from the four-yard line just before the end of the fourth quarter and after a Bellevue fumble found Steven Swedstedt four plays later to get his team to within 43-21. Another Bellevue fumble and another Lindquist scoring run made it 43-28 with 10:39 to play. “Mercer Island is a good team,” Goncharoff said. “We’ve got to get better and

SRC | FROM 10 psi of air into the chamber around the patient’s legs, allowing them to control the percentage of body weight they run with. “Technology like the AlterG allows you to work in increments,” said Chasan. “You can literally alter your weight bearing increments by 1 percent. This is a NASA developed technology.” Mercer Island cross country and track coach Erica Hill, another client, has gone to the clinic for years, recommending it to many of her student athletes. “It’s a state-of-the-art facility, and Neil has brought in incredible equipment to help athletes get back on their feet quickly and to fulfill their goals,” said Hill. “Sports Reaction Center is a wonderful resource for all athletes, and I recommend cross country and track athletes go there for anything injuryrelated, or to learn how to make themselves stronger.” Hill said the technology the clinic uses is amazing, wishing equipment like the AlterG was available years ago. Another brand new tech-

nology that SRC uses is the OptoJump, which Chasan discovered last December at a sports medicine conference. Originally from Italy, the OptoJump records athletes’ movements between the two bars and captures it on video. The data is then examined to look for abnormalities. “It’s an analysis technology that allows us to look at the way athletes behave and function,” said Chasan of the OptoJump. “We can actually evaluate athletic performance for physical performance at a frequency that’s much higher than our eye can see because we have technology that can see them with video, but can also collect data on their actual performance as well. Really, it’s a situation where a picture is worth a thousand words. They can see what they look like and make really quick adjustments that are going to help improve their form gradually over time.” Chasan said the new technology is filling a void. Before, physical therapists simply had to use their own opinions to make judgment calls. “I like to say there is all the science over here, and all the clinical over here, and between there is a big black hole. Up to now we

just inserted that opinion into the black hole, but now that black hole is much smaller and we have a much smaller area of uncertainty because we’ve filled it with data. That’s incredibly helpful in a sporting environment...” explained Chasan. While many of the clients are athletes of high caliber, the clinic also sees many patients referred by doctors for various reasons — broken hips, ACL recovery, knee pain, etc. The clinic also uses the Bellevue Aquatic Center with therapist Hilary Croft, who works with patients at the pool before getting back into the main clinic. “We see everything you can imagine,” said Chasan. SRC has recently launched a sales side, surrounding the OptoJump. Chasan said one of the projects that the team is working on specifically is helping to raise money to get OptoJumps at the U.S. Olympic team’s training facilities. Since Olympic teams are completely funded through private money, it falls on their shoulders to raise money for new equipment like the OptoJump. Learn more about the company at www.srcpt.com or at srcsales.com.

Hopefully that gives us confidence for future games.” Bellevue quarterback Tyler Hasty had over 200 yards of total offense and

three other factory vehicles like Chevy Volt, Wheego LiFe, Lectric Leopard. Electric cars offer a smooth, quiet ride; the torque and instant throttle response; and the low

maintenance and operating costs. The cars are finally here; incentives and ordinances are in place — consumer demand will be the critical factor in the very near future. Sponsors of the event include: Puget Sound

By Reporter Staff

Between noon and 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, the City of Mercer Island is co-hosting a National Plug-In Day event at Luther Burbank Park as part of a nationwide gathering of plug-in vehicles. The event will take place in the north parking lot of Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island. Speakers will begin presentations at 1 p.m. in the park amphitheater, and some of the cars will be parked along the walking path in the adjacent meadow. The event, according to organizers, “is to show America that electric vehicles are here and viable — so buy one already.” During the same weekend there will be local gatherings in 15 cities, organized by Plug In America, Sierra Club and the Electric Auto Association. Over 50 plug-in vehicles are scheduled to be at the event. There are several home conversions and interesting projects, but the vast majority are factory electric vehicles. There will be some representatives from local electric utilities and makers of charging stations as well. Most Americans still have not even seen a modern electric vehicle, much less ridden in one. This is a chance to see the cars and maybe try a few out.

Megan’s day began with a migraine… and ended with her closing a huge deal. Thanks to same-day appointments at Overlake Medical Clinics, Megan was treated quickly for her migraine and returned to work in time for the big presentation. If you have an unexpected illness, remember Overlake is nearby. With multiple clinics, flexible scheduling and expert care, we’ll get you back to business as usual in no time.

Sukkot is also called the “Season of Joy� and the booths are called “Sukkot of Peace.� When we learn the lesson of the Sukkah, de-emphasizing our p h y s i cal pursuits, and enhancing aour spiritual involvements, we bring peace for our families, our communities and ourselves. When we are at peace, we have joy. What a wonderful world it will be, when there is peace and joy for all of G-d’s people!

gently shaking its walls, and the all-too-often Seattle showers indicating their approach though its roof, we are reminded of how dependent we are on G-d. Moses, the ultimate Jewish leader, is praised as being â€œâ€Śvery humble, more so than any other man on the face of the earthâ€? (Numbers 12:3). Despite his brilliance, his piety and all of his other stellar attributes, the Torah praises Moses’s hu m i l i t y. Moses was aware of his accomplishments, but it did not cause him to become haughty — because he attributed all of his attainments to G-d, he was blessed with the abilities and opportunities for success. The holiday of Sukkot reminds us of the fragility of our existence, and the purpose of our lives. Material things are here today and gone tomorrow, and we cannot take

e i g h t days, Jews throughout the world will “dwell� in booths: eating, drinking, schmoozing as well as sleeping in the Sukkot, thereby fulfilling the biblical commandment: “In Sukkot you shall dwell for seven days so that future generations shall know that I had the Israelites dwell in Sukkot when I brought them out of Egypt� (Leviticus 23:42, 43). Our tradition records two opinions as to what these “Sukkot� were. One

is that they dwelled in thatched huts or booths during the 40-year sojourn in the wilderness. The second is that Sukkot denotes the clouds of glory that surrounded them and miraculously protected them from the elements. We fulfill this Mitzvah (commandment) by erecting temporar y booths, outside of our homes, with sometimes flimsy walls and an even flimsier roof to remind us how G-d protected our ancestors some 3,000 years ago. In Hebrew, the Bible is called the Torah. The word Torah means a lesson, a directive that everyone can implement in his or her daily lives. We are divinely blessed to live in a country of peace, stability, prosperity and equal opportunity. Our material success, however, is fraught with spiritual challenges. The Torah warns us not to declare, “It was my own strength and personal power that brought me all this prosperity. You must remember that it is G-d your L-rd who gives you the power to become prosperous.� (Deuteronomy 8:17, 18). When we sit in the Sukkah, with the wind

The High Holiday season has begun for the Jewish people. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, was observed and celebrated on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 29 and 30. Yom Kippur, the holiday of Atonement, was observed on Saturday, Oct. 8.

population — 2.5 billion people — lack proper sanitation facilities. Water is central not only to life and health, but to economic development, community cohesion, and self-sufficiency. A well that provides clean, potable water means so many things. But most of all it means hope. It can bring an end to rampant diarrhea caused by waterborne disease, or free up hours upon hours of people’s time once dominated by lugging water from faraway streams. Successful water projects like those run by Episcopal Relief & Development can have an enormous ripple effect. That is why, on October 8, Islanders neighbors and members of Emmanuel Episcopal Church will partner with Episcopal Relief & Development to host a festive evening of turning wine into water to help people in real need.

The wine will flow from 7 until 9 p.m. at Emmanuel Church (childcare available on site). All are welcome. To register and for more information, visit http://emmanuelmi.org/ sending/wine-into-water.

“shock news,� and why not? For their business, it keeps people watching, which sells more commercials. But the hype and negativity created by the financial media can lead to distorted thinking and unnecessary anxiety. The best thing is to limit your consumption of financial media. Insurance Certain types of insurance, such as liability coverage or annuities (in certain cases), can provide some options for risk coverage or providing a guaranteed income stream. These might be considered as part of an action plan. Seek professional assistance There is no magic bullet for people who are underfunded for retirement, and trying to “do it yourself � can be a difficult and risky prospect. Seeking the help of a professional financial planner can provide benefit in helping to assess your situation and frame options that you may not have considered. A professional planner can help in better understanding improved asset deployment, appropriate tax planning which may reduce your taxes, navigating the investment markets, optimal investment allocation, and analyzing a variety of options to help stretch your retirement assets. Bob Toomey is Vice President, Research for S.R. Schill & Associates, an investment and financial planning firm located on Mercer Island.
