FUTURE | FROM 1 city’s vehicles, whereas the district has to send buses offIsland for maintenance. “This is an opportunity that should be considered and pursued,” said City Manager Rich Conrad. Securing land around City Hall could be difficult; Conrad said he is not sure the city can provide the assurance the School Board wants. “But there are opportunities around City Hall,” Conrad said. City Council member Dan Grausz suggested the district should move quickly on land acquisition given the soft market, noting that both parties represent the same taxpayers.

Swimmers at Mary Wayte Pool enjoy the open swim time. City officials and the school district are working on a plan to keep the pool open.

In light of the congestion and accidents on streets surrounding the high school campus, the district has met with student leadership to come up with ideas to reduce traffic. Many students now have Orca cards, but it’s unknown how much they use them. MISD board member Adair Dingle suggested that perhaps the city could engineer a pull-out lane for turning into the school. The problem is on the city’s radar, with Conrad stating they hope to have something shaped by early

2012. The final issue on the agenda was the district’s plan to replace or rebuild schools. Some of the plans include taking over space now used by tenants. Grausz asked about Youth Theatre Northwest, making the point that the district is not in the theater business. MISD board member Janet Frohnmayer pointed out that YTN is a valuable community asset. If the district doesn’t need the site that YTN is on now, it will continue to function unless a ‘black box’ theater is

included in the school plan. The school district must begin to make its case to voters for the money. The bottom line is overcrowding, but Dingle pointed out that most people, who don’t have kids in the schools, don’t realize how crowded the schools are. That said, the district intends to send a mailer out in about 10 days, to all citizens, about the facilities plan. Conrad said the city is entering into a phase where most of the taxpayers’ money will be going toward

schools. Discussion of building a fourth elementary school was a bit contentious, since locating a 10-acre site on Mercer Island is tricky. Council member Mike Cero likes the idea of a fourth elementary school on the North end, if property could be secured. Council member Jane Meyer Brahm said she thought it would be a hard sell to float a bond for four new elementary schools. “The fact that 650 students are in portables will resonate with voters,” she said.

Vote Mitchell T

he Mercer Island Reporter endorses Islander Richard Mitchell for Pos. 6 on the King County Council over incumbent Jane Hague. Hague has been on the Council since 1993. Despite her service, there have been some major blunders that have been well documented. They include being arrested for drunken driving when she also verbally abused police officers. Her resume said that she had held a college degree when in fact, she did not — an “error” from 1986 that was left uncorrected until 2007. She then blamed the error on her staff. Her campaign paid an $8,000 fine for finance and disclosure violations in the last election. But how quickly we forget. The Seattle Times, which first endorsed Mitchell over Hague in the primary, reversed their position last week, saying in part that Mitchell’s campaign was too far to the left — saying that he might be “too blue for the purple Eastside” (huh?), and his campaign literature was “nasty.” A review of Mitchell’s background and accomplishments is instructive. He graduated from Cornell University with honors in architecture, where he met Henry Louis Gates, whom he counts as a mentor and friend. He earned a Master of Urban Planning from the University of Michigan. He holds a law degree from Syracuse University. He is an attorney with a Seattle law firm where he leads the multi-disciplinary real estate, land use, environmental, design and construction law group. For four years, he held the position of Legal Counsel for Governor Chris Gregoire. In 2009, he was the recipient of the Washington State Bar Association’s Professionalism Award. At the beginning of this election season, the highly respected Municipal League of King County rated Mitchell “outstanding,” while Hague, despite her years on the Council, received a “good” rating. We believe that the right candidate should be elected regardless of who endorses them or how much money they raised. We want to know if they are qualified and honest. We like what Mitchell told us when we first met him. “Now that state funding for many things is gone, it becomes up to us to reset the priorities of government.” But, he noted, it is not just up to him. He said his first task is “to see what the priorities are of the constituents of the sixth district.”

A community committed to helping elevate the basic education funded by the state to the comprehensive, 21st centur y educat i o n M e r c e r Carna I s l a n d Lapping students n e e d to succeed. My name is Carna Lapping and I loved my development and special events work I did with the American Lung Association over the last few years. I had the great opportunity to climb Mt. Rainier with an incredible group of our donors and spend 3 days biking in the San Juan Islands with another group. I look forward to climbing a whole different kind of mountain with those of you on Mercer Island –the steep climb of raising another $1.6 million this year to

help our school district fund our amazing teachers and exceptional educational opportunities for students. As you know, our annual Fall Phone-a-Thon campaign is right around the corner. Your gifts have been crucial in ensuring that Mercer Island Schools maintain their tradition of excellence. Again this fall, we will be asking for a donation of $500 per student to fund new classroom curriculum, enrichment materials, student support programs and teacher professional development. Undoubtedly you have heard the statistics. During the 2009 - 2010 school year statewide spending per student averaged $9,544. Mercer Island spent $9,692 per student. When compared to the 295 school districts in this state Mercer Island ranked 165th. Additionally, schools in Washington state rank 46th in class size comparisons across the country. Looking beyond the alarming headlines about education funding and budget cuts and driven by a desire to combat the effect of shrinking state revenues, our communi-

ty has an opportunity to infuse our schools with needed critical financial resources. Funding public education now requires additional support from stakeholders - parents and community members like you - to ensure that all students will benefit from an exceptional education that affords them the opportunity to achieve the highest levels of academic and personal success. When your phone rings on November 7th or 8th please answer the call and give generously. I look forward to working with Mercer Island Schools Foundation Board of Directors, School district administration and community leaders to provide the resources our public schools need to deliver exceptional educational opportunities to all 4,000 students. I also look forward to meeting you - the great donors who support the Mercer Island Schools Foundation!

Cyclists, walkers can visit Beacon Hill and beyond with new trail

“Connected, safe, off-road transportation options such as this new trail are key to our future.”

Mountain to Sound Greenway

Walkers and riders take advantage of the view of downtown Seattle from the new link to the I-90 trail that extends to Beacon Hill. The new trail was dedicated last weekend. Greenway volunteers will return this fall for an invasive weed removal and to plant trees. “With its magnificent view of downtown Seattle and the Olympics, Dr. José Rizal Park will become a jewel for Beacon Hill and Seattle,” says Thompson. “Connected, safe, off-road transportation options such as this new trail are key to our future.” Trail construction was funded by $1.8 million from the Pro Parks Levy passed in 2000, combined with $810,000 in federal grants.

The new trail will connect to a signed bicycle route and will have signs as part of the regional trail system. Extensive lighting, fencing and landscaping will help keep the park and trail accessible and safe for public use. Reprinted by permission, Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust.

The Elections Department encourages voters to call the voter hotline (206-296-VOTE) if this happens. Voter communications always include reminders to contact the Elections Department if your ballot has not been received in the week after it was mailed out to you. Voters are encouraged to contact the Elections Department if they have not yet received a ballot in the mail or if they have any questions about voting in the November General Election.

The King County Elections Department has identified about 11,000 Eastside voters whose ballots were not sent out among the 1.1 million General Election ballots mailed on Oct. 19. Ballots are being mailed to these voters tomorrow and they should receive them in the mail early next week. All voters have until Nov. 8 to vote and get ballots postmarked or returned to a ballot drop box. The Elections Department constantly reviews calls to its phone bank to determine if there are any issues arising in the course of every election. Although call volumes for the current election have been consistent with past elections, in the last couple of days, calls from voters about not receiving ballots in the mail were more concentrated in several Eastside areas than normal. “We investigated the matter and discovered a technical problem associated with part of our voter database that resulted in exclusion of these ballots from being mailed on the date originally scheduled,” said Sherril Huff, Elections Director. “Quality assurance is an important component of our elections processes and while we regret that this event occurred, I’m pleased that

THE RECORD

Police During the month of September, the Mercer Island Police Department reported 1,057 total calls for service, and 31 arrests. There were four burglaries, 42 thefts, one vehicle theft, five DUI arrests, one hit-and-run, 11 traffic accidents and 252 total traffic citations.

OCT. 23 ITEMS FROM CAR PROWL: Vehicle

registrations and manuals were found on the shoulder of the road in the 5200 block of East Mercer Way at 2:28 p.m. The items belonged to a Bellevue man and were turned in to the MIPD for investigation. FENDER-BENDER: A vehicle left 70 feet of skid marks before ramming into the back of a vehicle in a line of five cars at 2:30 p.m. in the 4600 block of Island Crest Way. The driver, 18, was holding a cup of coffee that spilled and stained her pants when the collision occurred. She was cited for negligent driving in the second degree. She thought the cars were stopped for a southbound vehicle to turn left, but the driver who

was rear-ended — who had two young passengers — thought that they were stopped for a pedestrian in the crosswalk. There were no injuries. FOUND: A CD case marked “Jane’s CD Case” was found in the bushes at a residence in the 3000 block of West Mercer Way at 1:30 p.m. The case contained several CDs. MALICIOUS MISCHIEF: Someone painted black graffiti on the back of the Mary Wayte Pool building. The graffiti was painted over before the police report was filed.

OCT. 24 ARREST: A 19-year-old Renton man was booked into custody at the Issaquah Jail at 10:39 p.m. on a misdemeanor warrant after being released from the SCORE (South Correctional Entity) facility.

OCT. 25 VEHICLE THEFT: An Infiniti QX4

was stolen out of a driveway in the 9700 block of Mercerwood Drive sometime overnight. The owner had left it unlocked, but the keys were not inside. A second vehicle in the driveway, a

Toyota Tacoma, was prowled but no items were stolen. There is no suspect information. CAR PROWL: Someone rummaged through a Porsche in the 3700 block of East Mercer Way overnight after partially lifting its cover. Reading glasses, a leather case containing vehicle documents, and other papers including a protection order were stolen. The vehicle had likely been left unlocked. WALLET THEFT: Someone stole a receptionist’s wallet from her desk at a business in the 3000 block of 80th Avenue S.E. after 1 p.m. The wallet contained credit cards and ID. Two transactions were then processed at the Mercer Island Shell station at 80th Avenue S.E. and S.E. 28th Street. A Shell employee came to the victim’s business during the time frame when the wallet was taken. No video footage was recorded at the Shell station. THEFT: A Mercer Island man reported that someone used his personal information in an attempt to open a bank account through First National Bank and Everbank between Oct. 16 and Oct. 21. The bank notified the victim.

OCT. 26 MARILYN DOKE

RUNAWAY: A North end resident reported that her son, 14, ran away from home sometime after 3:30 p.m.

OCT. 27 ARREST: Police arrested a

25-year-old driver at 1:55 a.m. after stopping him for expired tabs in the 4000 block of Island Crest Way. He did not have a driver’s license and said it was suspended. He was cited and released from the MIPD. DUI: A vehicle exited the freeway and nearly hit a concrete barrier, then re-entered the freeway without signaling. Police arrested the driver, a 22-year-old Seattle woman, at 3:25 a.m. in the 8400 block of S.E. 26th Street after she failed standard sobriety tests. She smelled strongly of intoxicants but said she had not been drinking alcohol. Police recovered a glass pipe with burnt marijuana residue from the vehicle.

Deer struck on Island Crest Way On Oct. 24 around 7:30 p.m. a 59-year-old Bellevue woman was driving on Island Crest Way when she struck a deer, killing the animal. The Toyota Camry was heading northbound in the 4400 block of Island Crest Way when she hit the deer.

The woman was reportedly unharmed, and the drivers side front and root of the vehicle sustained damage.

Marilyn Doke died peacefully in her home on October 4, 2011, surrounded by her family. She was 84. Marilyn had great faith and she was not afraid in death. She lived her remarkable life no differently. Marilyn was born and raised in Chicago. She went to school at the University of Wisconsin, where she dreamed of becoming an actress, while completing her degree in Education. She met the love of her life, William Doke, at the university, and they were married shortly after graduation. Bill whisked her a world away to Seattle for a one year adventure. After experiencing the beauty of the Northwest, they never returned. Together, Marilyn and Bill made their home on the East shore of Mercer Island, where they lived for 50 years, made many lifelong friends, and raised five sons: Steve, Larry, Ron, Brian and Jeff.The great sorrow of her life was losing Larry to leukemia, and Jeff to a car crash years later. Marilyn’s great strength allowed her to survive such horrific losses, and she continued to live with passion and resolve. She opened her own business on the Island, Country Village Day School, and later became a real estate professional. Her efforts put four boys through college. Marilyn loved hiking and camping, Christmas, and watching her boys play baseball, basketball and football. When grandchildren came, she helped raise four more boys with great love, passion and care. She enjoyed nothing more than watching her grandchildren play baseball, basketball, football, soccer and lacrosse. Just one month before she passed, Marilyn climbed into a rubber raft with her grandkids and enjoyed a tow on a beautiful mountain lake in Central Oregon. Marilyn’s greatest gift was her passion for life and love, a lasting lesson for the Doke family and friends. Marilyn is survived by her brother, Ed Schultz, her sons Steve, Ron and Brian, and her grandsons, Cooper, Calvin, William and Christopher. Memorial services will be held at the Unity Church of Bellevue on November 26th at 2pm.

Mary E. Shepherd gently passed surrounded by loved ones on October 21, 2011. She was born in Fremont, Nebraska on August 23, 1912, to William and Teresa Hannan. As the oldest of four children growing up on a farm she developed a strong independent streak, going on to graduate from Midland College, George Washington University and Seattle U. A turning point in her life was the bombing of Pearl Harbor, which she witnessed on December 7th 1941, while living with her family on the island of Oahu. She joined the U.S. Navy in 1943 and was among the first WAVES officers in the nation to be recruited. There she met her husband, Captain George Shepherd, and was honorably discharged at the rank of lieutenant commander shortly before their only daughter was born in 1952. She moved from London, England to Seattle in 1957 and worked as a teacher and administrator for the Mercer Island School District, retiring at the age of 62. In her golden years she dedicated herself to family, friends, neighbors and the church. Always the life of the party, she was known as a witty beauty, a loving (grand)mother with a pizazz for life, and always knew how to dress for the occasion. Mary is survived by her daughter Sandra Shepherd Barto; son-inlaw Bruce Barto; sister Virginia Rochford; sister-in-law Billie Hannan; grandchildren Jeremy and Alyssa Barto, and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. A service will be held at St. Monica’s Parish on Mercer Island, Tuesday November 8 at 11am. 540582

The point is it’s time for a new generation to be represented on the council. We are a changing and evolving community.

A tunnel for downtown Bellevue could be reality Cost for building a tunnel in Bellevue estimated to be a quarter of $1 billion By Nay Levy nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

The Sound Transit board Thursday endorsed an agreement with the City of Bellevue to enable the East Link light rail project to serve downtown Bellevue via a tunnel. The Board authorized Sound Transit CEO Joni Earl to execute a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Bellevue following upcoming action by the Bellevue City Council. Mayor Don Davidson on Wednesday presented the board with a letter stating the city’s commitment to take action on the MOU on or before Nov. 14. The MOU establishes a collaborative partnership for Sound Transit and the Bellevue to work together during the final design and

construction processes for East Link to manage the project’s costs and impacts and to share the additional cost of building the tunnel. Benefits of the partnership include saving time for transit riders as well as motorists by avoiding at-grade street crossings in downtown Bellevue and establishing a grade-separated light rail alignment all the way from Seattle to the Bel-Red Corridor. “Building the voterapproved East Link line is critical for the mobility and prosperity of our region. This agreement is good for the people of Bellevue and good for the people of King County,� said Sound Transit Board member and King County Executive Dow Constantine. The MOU reviewed by the Sound Transit board today was shaped through negotiations over the past two months, with Constantine and Sound Transit Board members Fred Butler and Richard Conlin representing the agency in

discussions with Bellevue City Council members Jennifer Robertson, Grant Degginger and Kevin Wallace. Following the issuance of a Record of Decision by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Sound Transit will move the East Link project into final design. Sound Transit is expected to start construction of East Link in 2015 or 2016 and launch passenger service in 2023. The tunnel is estimated to cost an additional $276 million beyond the cost of an at-grade alignment through downtown after factoring in cost savings from locating East Link’s South Bellevue alignment along 112th Avenue Southeast. The MOU establishes a firm funding commitment by the City of Bellevue for up to $160 million (in 2010 dollars), identifies the city’s preferred design for the alignment along 112th Avenue Southeast and commits Sound Transit to review and consider the design

November is lung cancer awareness month It may be no coincidence that November is both Lung Cancer Awareness Month and COPD Awareness Month. Lung cancer and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) are two of the leading causes of death in America – and also among the most under appreciated. This

November, the American Lung Association is shining a spotlight on these two deadly diseases, and what’s being done to reduce their burden on American lives and that of their loved ones. Two new pages on the Lung Association web site are now dedicated to raising awareness about COPD and lung cancer year round. For more, go to www.lungusa.org.

Housing, health care add most to rising cost of living in Washington A study by researchers at the UW found that it costs 8 percent more on average than it did two years ago for Washington residents to make ends meet. The report, funded by the Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County, shows that East King County has the highest self-sufficiency standard in the state, requiring $65,690 (up 14 percent from $57,766 two years ago) for a family with one parent, one preschooler and one school-age child. A single parent with one preschooler and one schoolage child living in Seattle needs an annual income of $56,904 – up 13 percent from $50,268 two years ago – to meet the family’s most basic requirements.

changes. Other key elements of the agreement include mechanisms to share risks and benefits between the parties and commitments to work together in the final design process to manage the project’s scope, schedule and budget. The agreement provides that Bellevue will process land use code amendments to establish a consolidated permit process and other actions including resolving technical code issues. A Transitway Agreement slated for approval alongside the MOU grants Sound Transit non-exclusive use of city right-ofway to construct, operate, and maintain the East Link project, at no cost to Sound Transit; and outlines typical standards for construction, operation and maintenance of the project in city right-of-way generally consistent with existing transitway agreements in the cities of Seattle, Tukwila and SeaTac. Riding East Link between Seattle and downtown Bellevue is projected to take less than 20 minutes. By comparison, in the afternoon peak period it can currently take approximately 45 minutes to travel between Seattle and Bellevue via I-90.

Running in the name of helping sick kids By Megan Managan mmanagan@mi-reporer.com

Contributed Photo

Camp Korey, located in Carnation, Wash. holds various summer camps and programs for children who are sick or otherwise would not be able to go to camp.

Every year thousands of runners flock to New York City to the starting line of the largest marathon race in the world. The ING New York City Marathon takes place on Nov. 6 and features some of the top runners in the world. This weekend, it will also include a group of runners from the Puget Sound area with the express goal of raising money for a local camp. Around 30 racers from the greater S e a t t l e Susan area will Marinello join the national Team Hole in the Wall in New York for the race. The group from Washington has been raising money for Camp Korey, located in Carnation, Wash. Camp Korey offers children who face a childhood illness or other health issues the chance to go to camp during one of the organization’s many programs. It creates the idealistic summer camp experience for children who otherwise would not be able to attend. Longtime Mercer Island resident Susan Marinello got involved after a friend introduced her to the cause and the camp. “It’s been such a journey,” she said of the training and of learning about the camp. She said she was especially drawn to the camp because her son was sick as a young child. “It all fits for me because

my son was sick for the first year of his life,” she said. “It’s my first marathon, but I’m challenging myself in tandem with the effort of raising money for the camp. I’ve made so many discoveries.” She, along with another Islander, Mike Wampold, will be taking on the race this weekend. The local effort began with Camp Korey board member Chris McReynolds, who recruited both Wampold and Marinello. The goal is to raise $300,000 for the camp. Each racer commits to raising at least $3,000 toward the overall goal. Most runners interested in taking on the NYC challenge must either qualify or earn entry through an annual drawing. This year, the team raising funds for Camp Korey was given spots in the race, and has already secured more for next year. “It’s gone so well that next year they’ve given us more spots,” said Wampold. “I learned about Camp Korey early in the new year and immediately knew I wanted to help,” said Marinello. The reasons were similar for Wampold, a longtime runner — the opportuMike nity comWampold bined two things he wanted to do. “A couple people I know are on the board,” he said. “It’s an amazing camp and I’m a runner, so it’s a great marriage to raise money and at the same time get to run the NYC marathon.” While it’s the fifth such race for Wampold, Marinello will be racing the 26.2 miles for the first time. She said she has been training mostly on her own along the way, working up to her longest run to date before the race – 20 miles. “I run about 25 to 30 miles a week on the Island,” she said. “It depends where, but I love doing Mercer Island and across the

bridge. I recently ran from the park and ride around Lake Washington. That was a long run.” Wampold said he likes running from his house to Seward Park and back. “It’s a fun run,” he said. The changes in scenery around the Island and over the bridge will help the runners prepare for the changes in scenery in New York. The marathon takes racers through each borough, beginning on the Verrazano Narrows Bridge on Staten Island, winding through Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, before heading into Manhattan. “I’m most looking forward to running through all the boroughs,” said Wampold. “They are so distinctive and different. Each place has its own culture and its very ethnic.” While training, the group is also raising money to help get as many kids to the camp as they can. In raising money, each is taking their own approach to the task. Wampold said he is using the team’s website and sending out emails to family and friends to let them know about the cause. “I’ve found it’s a pretty easy pitch to people,” said the runner. He said he hopes to raise $5,000 toward the overall goal. “The sky’s the limit,” said Marinello. “There’s such a need — there really is no cap.” Marinello’s approach has also been to send out emails, sharing experiences of her training and telling stories. One of her recent emails, shared after a trip to Washington, D.C., pondered the different outfits that runners wear around the world, and concluding that Seattle’s wear the brightest colors and are most likely to nod hello. She, too, has found the pitch has been easy for people to hear. “I encourage everyone to go visit,” she said of the camp. “Just the views and the setting is amazing. What moved me from the

FOOTBALL | FROM 1 “It’s nice to get a home game,” said Ogata of the first round playoff match at Islander Stadium. “The kids are excited, but they are focused and not too excited.” Even with home field advantage Mercer Island will have to bring it’s top game, knowing Ferndale won’t sit back and watch the game. “Ferndale has done well as a program because they are very well coached,” said Ogata. “We’re going to have to beat Ferndale, they aren’t going to beat themselves. We have to be better than them.” The game started at Lake Washington with an 80-yard kickoff return for points with 11:48 on the clock by Steen Swedstedt, making it 7-0. Just a minute later the Islanders scored again, this time on a play involving a hand off from quarterback Jeff Lindquist to Brian Higgins, who lobbed it back to Lindquist, who tossed it on a 41-yard pass to Nicky Sinclair for the points. The score was 14-0 with 10:15 to go in the first quarter. Blake Johnson scored on an 8-yard run with 5:45 on the clock, while Sinclair connected again on a 44-yard pass from Lindquist to make it 28-0 at the end of the first. Alex Wood began the second quarter with a 33-yard field goal for Mercer Island

to up the score to 31-0, followed by an interception by Connor Bernal on the 17-yard line. He ran it in for the points. With 2:37 on the clock in the half, Lake Washington’s Jack Michels caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Nick Young to score the only Kang points of the night. The score was 38-7. Before the half finished, Eric Stefanchik scored off a 91-yard pass from Higgins to make it 45-7 at halftime. The pass from Higgins to Stefanchik was longest of his career at MIHS, and was 15-yard longer than Lindquist’s best. During the first half the Islanders had amassed 270 yards, while holding Lake Washington to just 90 on the field. In the second half, the teams remained closer with Mercer Island gaining 75, and Lake Washington earning 48. The Islanders scored again in the third quarter when Higgins made a 6-yard run into the endzone, starting a running clock as the Islanders had 52 points. The fourth quarter was scoreless as the clock ran down, with the teams leaving the field under a 52-7 scoreboard. Ogata said the game against Lake Washington showcased the team as a whole, not just the starters. “Execution,” was what worked, said Ogata agains

Diversify to defend against volatility Smooth out the risk with a diversified portfolio By Bob Toomey, CFA Special to the Reporter

The stock market of today is more volatile than in previous decades. This is due to the heavier influence in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market of institutions like hedge funds and high frequency trading. Also the high degree of global economic and geopolitical instability of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world can feed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fearâ&#x20AC;? emotion among investors which leads to increased market volatility.

The question comes up a lot in dealing with clients as to how volatility can be reduced in their investment portfolios. Diversification among asset classes and individual securities holdings in a portfolio is one important way in which portfolio volatility can be reduced. Asset class diversification represents the allocation in the portfolio to major asset classes such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and commodities. These asset classes have a low degree of correlation to each other (correlation being the degree to which the classes move in tandem with each other under various market con-

Wednesday, November 2, 2011 | Page 19 ditions). Combining asset classes with low correlation in a portfolio can reduce the overall volatility of a portfolio. In terms of securities holdings, portfolio volatility can be reduced through a) increasing the number of individual securities held (up to a point); b) holding higher q u a l Bob Toomey ity and dividendpaying securities; c) diversifying the industry or sector exposure of both stock and bond holdings. Incomeproducing securities tend to have lower volatility generally. Industries and sectors also have widely varying correlations to

each other, so expanding industry exposure improves the â&#x20AC;&#x153;diversificationâ&#x20AC;? of the portfolio and thereby helps to reduce overall volatility. Studies have shown that lower volatility portfolios tend to outperform higher volatility portfolios over long periods of time. In these turbulent and volatile markets, structuring a portfolio so that it is adequately diversified both by asset class and securities holdings can create a greater source of value to the investor through a) reduced volatility, b) increased income, and c) opportunity for capital appreciation. Islander Bob Toomey is Vice President, Research for S.R. Schill & Associates, a registered investment advisor located on Mercer Island.

World affairs course brings reality home for students By Linda Ball lball@mi-reporter.com

Mikhail Savvateev believes that everyone deserves to have basic needs such as access to clean water. It would seem logical, but in fact people all over the world suffer every day. Savvateev, a Mercer Island High School junior, and three other MIHS students, junior Neil Datar, sophomore Eric Schulz and sophomore Peter Welch, attended the Global Youth Leadership Institute this summer, which is hosted by the World Affairs Council. Only 40 students from the Puget Sound area get in to the GYLI each year. All four boys are solid students, gaining entry into the program based on essays they wrote on why they were interested in learning more about world affairs. Schulz and Welch signed up together, as did Datar and Savvateev. Now all four have become fast friends with even more new friends from the other schools who attended the institute, which

is held on the University of Washington campus. The students still communicate through a Facebook group. The institute, which was held from June 27 to July 1, included real world simulations, such as a conflict between India and Pakistan. “They taught us multiple perspectives to each issue,” Datar said. Guest speakers included representatives from the Port of Seattle, Boeing and the CIA, all organizations that deal with international issues in their work, and how they apply knowledge of global issues into their days. The students even met the ex-president of Botswana, his Excellency Festus Gontebanye Mogae. The students went to the Refugee Project in Seattle and dressed up in various international attire, then walked around downtown Seattle looking for reaction. The boys said that the girls who dressed in full Burqas got the strangest looks. They passed through various stations that simulated the dif-

ficulty refugees face. Now the four students are working on their GYLI project, which is to bring awareness and possibly even raise money for clean water in third world countries. They’ve already contacted a speaker to come to MIHS and talk to interested students, and they hope to organize a fundraiser. “If this goes well, we’re hoping to have a panel on the Arab spring,” Datar said. “The whole idea of the youth leadership is to keep ourselves and our peers educated about world affairs.” Welch, who is a member of Leadership Mercer Island, said he got involved because he is interested in what’s going on outside his world. “Once you see the problems, it’s hard not to fix what’s going on,” he said. “Clean water is one of the biggest things – I think it’s nice to know you can come home and have a cold glass of clean water. On a basic level, everyone needs water.”

With their fourth partner, Eric Schulz (not pictured) the students are working to heighten awareness about the lack of clean, potable water in third world countries. Datar agrees, saying that the best way to solve world problems is by keeping people informed. Savvateev was born in Russia, but moved to the U.S. before he started school. He is interested in Russian news sources and in expanding his knowledge of Russia and Asia. Datar is concerned about the lack of knowledge, understanding and passion both here and in third world

Children’s Hospital gets $65 million gift Gifts include $15 million to Eastside facility By Reporter Staff

Seattle Children’s on Monday announced two philanthropic gifts totaling $65 million to benefit pediatric research, nursing education and clinical care. An anonymous donor pledged approximately $50 million of their estate – the largest single gift in Children’s 104 year history – to benefit pediatric research at Seattle Children’s Research Institute. In addition, Jean Reid of Bellevue made gift commitments valuing approximate-

ly $15 million to support Children’s Bellevue Urgent Care Clinic, the advanced training of nurses, and the greatest needs of Children’s Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center. In recognition of Reid’s commitment, the Children’s Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center will be named the “Robert and Jean Reid Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center” in honor of her and her late husband. “We are ecstatic,” said Jim Ladd, chair of Seattle Children’s Hospital Board of Trustees. “Children’s has always relied on the community to sustain its mission of caring for all children and finding cures and better treatments. These gifts help

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Spirit of Sound Singersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; looking for new members By Reporter Staff

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a woman and love to sing, and are thinking about joining a local chorus, the Spirit of Sound Singers might just be for you. Now in its eighth year, the Spirit of Sound Singers (SOSS) chorus is a noncompeting, womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chorus whose members come from many Greater Puget Sound communities. Their director is Zoe Thompson of Bellevue, a Master Director; she has served as SAI President, is a certified judge, and has directed championship choruses for many years. The members of SOSS have put their talented chord-ringing harmony to work in our local communities singing for fund raisers as well as entertaining at retirement and lifecare communities, medical rehabilitation centers. The Spirit of Sound Singersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; repertoire is wideranging. Virtually any song can be arranged into

the style that has been described as 4-part, unaccompanied, close-harmony singing, with the melody being carried by the second voice. In 1945, Edna Mae Anderson of Tulsa, Okla. brought a few singing friends together. From that meeting grew the nucleus of what was to become Sweet Adelines International (SAI), an independent, nonprofit music education organization, now one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest for women. Members number over 25,000 and extend over five continents. Over 10,000 women attend yearly international competitions. In 2010, the SAI convention and competition was held at Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Key Arena. A local chorus from Bellevue was one of the 33 award-winning choruses. If you like to sing and are interested in learning more about singing a cappella barbershop harmony, visit a Spirit of Sound Singers rehearsal. For more information and rehearsal site location in Renton, visit spiritofsoundsingers.org or contact Sharon Johnson at 206.232.1073 or Carol Drew at 425.822.0949.
