or Adam Brown and Jason Reid, the pain of losing the Seattle Supersonics remains fresh. As documentarians of the movement to keep the team in town when Clay Bennett moved the franchise to Oklahoma City, they had a front row seat for the political hand wringing, litigation and fan heartbreak that accompanied the team’s departure in 2008. “There was so much toxic energy around the way the team left and people were burned out and apathetic,” said Brown, producer of the awardwinning documentary “Sonicsgate.” To many, the best way to move on was to forget.

discussions about bringing back the Sonics – the franchise moved to Oklahoma, but the green and gold stayed behind - first begins with an arena. Pundits have thrown out numerous possibilities for a new venue, and a consistent question has arisen. Would the Seattle Supersonics be better off calling a new arena in Bellevue home? Rumors have swirled around Chicago businessman Don Levin’s desire to put an arena on the Eastside, and State Rep. Mike Hope (R-Lake Stevens) may introduce legislation to raise a portion of the money needed through an income tax on visiting players, but no concrete plan has emerged. A new venue in Bellevue could catapult it closer to the goal of becoming a “world-class city.” With extensive planned transportation improve-

ments and several potential locations, Bellevue may overcome the two biggest deterrents to a major venue - traffic and space. But developers and economists question whether an arena is even a good move for Bellevue. The only sure thing in this discussion is that Bellevue and state taxpayers won’t be footing the bill.

World-class city Bellevue is the capital of the Eastside, and a stone’s throw from downtown Seattle. Bellevue’s proximity to Seattle and the rest of the Eastside, coupled with its sterling workforce and planned transportation projects, make the city a natural contender for a large venue such as an NBA arena.

The Sound Transit board endorsed an agreement Oct. 27 with the city of Bellevue to to fund a downtown tunnel for East Link light rail 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. Bellevue Mayor Don Davidson presented the board with a letter re-stating the city’s commitment to take action on the MOU on or before Nov. 14. The memorandum establishes a collaborative partnership for Sound Transit and 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. 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.

Group Health Cooperative wants to redevelop the 28-acre site of its former hospital and clinic complex in the Overlake area into a mix of business and residential buildings.

egislators return to Olympia for a special session Nov. 28. For the fourth year in a row they will try to balance the state’s budget. It won’t be pretty. Just months after the Legislature passed a budget that included $4.6 billion in cuts, the state faces another $2 billion shortfall. Those billions mean real people with real needs will be hurt. The options to balance the budget will be many. Gov. Chris Gregoire already has proposed $1.5 billion in cuts, including: t&MJNJOBUJOHTVCTJEJ[FEIFBMUIDBSFUP 35,000 people who are on the state’s Basic Health Plan. t$VUUJOHUIFTUBUFTGPPEBTTJTUBODFQSPHSBN t$VUUJOHUIFUJNFQFPQMFDBOSFDFJWFXFMGBSF aid. t3FEVDJOHUIFBNPVOUPGUJNFNPTUGFMPOT are under state supervision once they are released from prison. t$VUUJOHTUBUFTVQQPSUUPDPMMFHFTBOEVOJ versities by 15 percent. There’s more – painfully more. And the Legislature hasn’t even weighed in yet. There will a be rush by some for tax increases, but that should be a last resort – if considered at all. Almost every household in the state is facing its own budget shortfall. They can’t be expected to bail the state out of its. A better approach would be to look at tax breaks and state services that don’t put our most vulnerable residents in the cross-hairs. It’s true that eliminating such things also has a downside. But the bottom line must be, which is worse: telling a poor person with a painful dental or medical condition to just live with it, or telling a business or industry that the rationale for a tax break has outlived its benefit to the state? Likewise, while the state has eliminated a number of boards and commissions, can anyone in the Legislature say that those that remain are “critical� to the state’s well-being? We doubt it. Finally, Gregoire and the Legislature once again must try to bring state workers into the real world regarding wages and benefits. We EPOUXBOUUPTPVOEMJLF&CFOF[FS4DSPPHF CVU the reality for many non-government workers is that they haven’t received raises – cost-ofliving or otherwise – for years and their share of such things as insurance benefits is steadily climbing.

Possible arena locations Much of the talk about an NBA arena in Bellevue centers around two places: Auto Row and the Spring District. Each spot has its own features that could make it a good destination. The Spring District could be an ideal location because it has easy access to Interstate 405 and State Route 520. With light-rail planned to come right through the area, the Spring District could be the easiest access point for travelers coming from out of town to see an event. Located near Northeast 12th Street and 124 Avenue Northeast, the Spring District strays a bit from downtown, the city’s fastest growing neighborhood, and one of its largest employment centers. Those already downtown could have a hard time getting to an event. Additionally, this area is set to be developed by Wright Runstead into a 36-acre mixed use area. Auto Row is made up of mostly empty lots, and a number of car dealerships on 116th Avenue. This area is just across the freeway from downtown, and a planned extension of Northeast Fourth Street could help ease some of the traffic congestion. This area is also slated to be developed by the property KG Investments, which did not return calls requesting comment for the story. This location is near downtown, but a sizeable walk from central transit dropoff points at the Bellevue Transit Center downtown.

The Bellevue School Board was briefed Tuesday on school crowding, setting the stage for possibly redrawing school attendance boundaries. The district emphasized that it doesn’t have any timeline for making any changes. “This is not something we choose to do, it’s something we must engage in. We’re over-crowded,” said Supt. Amalia Cudeiro, who emphasized that the meeting was only preliminary, and that when the process eventually starts, it will be slow-going to allow for community input. The district has been talking about long-term solutions to population growth since last year when Bellevue was identified as the fastest-growing district in King County. While not every school is crowded, each year the district grows by between 2 and 3 percent, according to Jacque Coe, district spokesperson. As it moves forward, the district will look at which areas have the most growth; establish a committee with representatives from every school; develop a proposal and then formulate a communications plan to help keep the community informed. While committees would help with a recommendation, the school board would make the final decision.

For the first time in its history, Robinswood Tennis Center in Bellevue boasts a national champion. The men’s 3.0 senior team, led by captain Doug Wilson and coach Darren Parsons, won the United States Tennis Association National Championship in Indian Wells, Calif. The tournament began with pool play, where the Robinswood team went 3-1, which ended up being good enough to earn a spot in the semi-finals against the team from the Caribbean. “Saturday, we were on the outside looking in and we didn’t control our own

destiny,” Wilson said. “The tournament director called Saturday night to let us know we won our pool. It was very exciting.” After dispatching the Wildcard team from the Mid-Atlantic region in the semi-finals, it was onto the championship match against a powerful and unbeaten team from Tyler, Texas. The format of the tournament was three doubles pairs facing-off in a best-ofthree. Rather than pitting their own best pair against the top team from Tyler, Wilson’s squad elected to leave it up to chance. “They were a very good team,” Wilson said. “We put names in a hat and drew.” The gamble paid off.

After splitting the first two matches, the pair of Mark Fisher and Dan Martin were the only duo left on the court with a national championship hanging in the balance. After playing to a stalemate, the match went to a 10-point tiebreak before Fisher and Martin brought the title back to Robinswood, winning the extra session 10-7. “The finals were very suspenseful,” Wilson said. “It was a moment I’ll remember for a long time.” The Robinswood men’s senior 3.0 team: Doug Wilson, Doug Morrison, Andy Fisher, Mark Fisher, Mike Zorich, Dan Martin, Kevin Regan.

Wolverines, Saints open playoffs BY JOSH SUMAN jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

One word can sum up the mindset of the Bellevue football team as it prepares for a visit from Glacier Peak. Focus. The Wolverines, which are making an 11th consecutive trip to the 3A state tournament and 12th in the past 13 seasons, will have to deal with a wide open Grizzlies’ offense and a defense that has familiarity with Bellevue’s patented Wing-T rushing attack by virtue of coaching connections on the two staffs. “I think Glacier Peak is as good a three-seed as there is in the state,” Bellevue head coach Butch Goncharoff said. “It’s single elimination and you’ve got to get your kids to refocus.” Offensively, the Grizzlies are led by quarterback David Linney, who has thrown for nearly 1,400 yards and 22 touchdowns against six interceptions. He has also rushed for four scores. But after facing top-flight passing attacks from Oaks Christian and Skyline, the Wolverines are

confident in their ability to contain Linney and the Glacier Peak passing game. “We’ve been working on coverages all year,” senior defensive back Connor Foreman said. “If we shut down the pass and make them run, we’ll be in good shape.” Opened in 2008, Glacier Peak’s only state appearance in football came a year later and ended with a 34-7 loss to Goncharoff and the eventual state champion Wolverines. That loss remains fresh in the minds of the Grizzlies and especially for a group of seniors who are the first class to experience all four years at the Snohomish school. “It’s obviously exciting for them,” Glacier Peak head coach Rory Rosenbach said. “They want to go out on a high note and continue doing the things they can to take the program to the next level.” Bellevue players know full well the energy the Grizzlies will bring, but also have their own legacy to uphold with no player on the team ever having experienced anything short of a 3A state title. “You get that little extra because we could be done after one game,” Foreman said. “It’s excit-

ing to get a chance to go for our fourth straight championship.” The winner will move on to face either Oak Harbor or Eastside Catholic, which also face off in a first round matchup.

Saints have fresh outlook in 2011 The playoff experience isn’t new for Interlake, but it sure feels different. The Saints have made the 2A state tournament in each of the past three seasons, reaching the quarterfinals before falling to Archbishop Murphy last year, but the mentality of the program has never been as galvanized as it is heading into Friday’s showdown with White River. Coach Jason Rimkus said he spoke with one of his captains earlier in the week who candidly told him this time last year, despite heading into the playoffs, he was ready for the season to end. “The energy level is just different,” Rimkus said of the 2011 version of the Saints. “I think their expectations are different as well.” [ more PLAYOFFS page 10 ]

Broadway star, Eastside native stars in ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ BY GABRIELLE NOMURA

Issaquah Reporter Staff Writer

From the green skin of the Wicked Witch of the West, to the guntotin’, sharp-shootin’ ways of a cowgirl, Vicki Noon stands out with the characters she portrays on stage. With a powerhouse voice and lauded acting chops, it’s no wonder Noon made it from Village Theatre’s KIDSTAGE program to Broadway. Fresh from the national tour of “Wicked,” the 26-year-old Newcastle native will return to the Eastside to star as Annie Oakley in Village Theatre’s “Annie Get Your Gun,” premiering Nov. 9. According to Noon, this show is exactly what theater should be. “It’s a spectacle,” she said. “We’re pushing the dancing to the limit, pushing the vocals to the limit; the sets

CHORUS SEEKING WOMEN SINGERS Women who love to sing are being sought by the Spirit of Sound Singers chorus, a non-competitive, women’s chorus. Members perform at charitable fund raisers, county scholarship award ceremonies, retirement communities and rehabilitation centers. The organization’s repertoire include show tunes, jazz, pop, gospel and more. More information is available at www. spiritofsoundsingers.org or contact Sharon Johnson at 206-232-1073 or Carol Drew at 425-822-0949.

and costumes and trick shooting are amazing.” After her stint playing the green-skinned, misunderstood witch, Elphaba, in “Wicked,” Noon said taking on a lighter, funnier character has been a riot. In reading the script, there were even moments where she was surprised to hear herself laughing out loud. This Wild West musical, an Irving Berlin classic, tells a love story of the sharpest sharpshooter, Oakley, and Frank Butler, the heart-throb of Buffalo Bill’s traveling show. Audiences will be able to hum along with tunes such as, “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” and “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better.” Artistic Director Steve Tomkins remembers originally working with Noon in 2005, when she appeared in Village Theatre’s

“Cats.” He said he knew right away that she had to be Village’s leading lady in “Annie Get Your Gun.” “Throughout the years, the women who have played the role of Annie have really exemplified the voices of their eras,” he said. “Ethel Merman in the 1940s, Rebecca McEntire in the 2000s, and I think Vicki Noon is the voice of today.” “Annie Get Your Gun” runs Nov. 9 to Jan. 29 at Village Theatre, 303 Front St. N., Issaquah.

Antonio Banderas is the cat’s meow in ‘Puss In Boots’

T

Aran Kirschenmann

THE YOUNG CRITIC

he feisty, heroic feline from the everpopular “Shrek” films gets a chance to star in his own movie, “Puss in Boots.” The story reveals the cat’s complicated life before meeting Shrek, and shows Puss transform from a kitten in an orphanage into a wanted outlaw through plenty of mishap and adventure. As in the previous Shrek films, the bootclad Puss is masterfully voiced by Antonio Banderas. His spirited performance brought the animation on screen to life, and his Spanish accent adds flair to the suave cat’s character. It is indisputable that Banderas carried the film. Other well known actors contributed their voices to the film, including Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, and even Billy Bob Thornton. The storyline of “Puss in Boots” was extraordinarily unpredictable and presented numerous twists. The best thing about the plot was that it was a completely fresh story, especially compared to the last couple of Shrek films which were beginning to feel overplayed. Despite being distinct from Shrek, “Puss in Boots” incorporated the key to the film series’ remarkable success, combining and playing off of many classic fairy tales to develop a new story. This newest film used the fables of “Puss

in Boots” and also drew inspiration and characters from the MOVIE fables of “Jack and Jill,” “Humpty Dumpty,” and “Jack and the Beanstalk.” Surprisingly, none of the classic Shrek characters made so much as an appearance in “Puss in Boots,” but the additions from the other tales led to the introduction of many new characters that were fascinating and captivating. The most so was Kitty Softpaws, voiced by Hayek, the expert female fighter and cat burglar, and the ultimate love interest in the film. “Puss in Boots” was very fast paced and entertaining. The film made great use of animation, particularly when the cats erupting into frequent and incredible dancing scenes, as well as during the thrilling action segments. Its witty and clever humor makes “Puss in Boots” an amusing and entertaining film for all ages. If you enjoyed Shrek, then you will love Puss, and this engaging and unique addition to that fairy tale series.

PAST

Heritage Corner

Do you remember the Cider Jug?

Ernest Norling paints a mural on the wall of the Cider Jug in Eastside Heritage the mid or late 1940s. Photograph Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s archives contains by Bill Brant a number of photographs of an establishment called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cider Jug.â&#x20AC;? Apparently, the Cider Jug was part of the Crabapple Restaurant, an extremely popular eatery located in Bellevue Square in the mid-20th century. It may have simply been the section of the restaurant where alcohol was served. If you have any information about the Cider Jug please email the archivist at archives@eastsideheritagecenter.org or call 425-450-1049. Heritage Corner is a feature in the Bellevue Reporter. Material is provided by the Eastside Heritage Center. For more information call 425-450-1049.

retirement in June 2005, was one of the first ballet masters chosen by Balanchine to be allowed to stage his works. Boal worked with Jerome Robbins at the New York City Ballet and has brought many of Robbinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; works to PNB since his arrival in 2005. In â&#x20AC;&#x153;Afternoon of a Faun,â&#x20AC;? Robbinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; portrays the innocent exchange between two dance students who hold their gazes forward as if studying every movement of their tentative partnership in a classroom mirror.

Artistic Director Peter Boal, along with PNBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ballet masters, were on hand asking the piano player to slow down or speed up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sometimes correcting one or two dancers at the end on how they could improve. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve often wondered how a dancer feels when he or she is singled out in front of everyone. I once heard that some dancers love this attention; others, do not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love Stories,â&#x20AC;? which run Nov. 4-13 at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall in Seattle, features PNB premiers of George Balanchineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Divertimentoâ&#x20AC;? from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Le Baiser de la FĂŠe,â&#x20AC;?

Balanchineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work was created for New York City Balletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legendary 1972 Stravinsky Festival. Its charismatic choreography contains notable solos for the male and female leads as well as hints of an enigmatic attraction between the pair.

IN GOOD COMPANY

I attended a studio rehearsal last week for Pacific Northwest Balletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love Stories.â&#x20AC;? Such rehearsals provide a fascinating chance to see the performers up close and personal. The rehearsal studios are intimate and very warm. As the dancers perform to a live piano, you can watch their facial expressions and hear them catch a breath of air. Since this was not a dress rehearsal, audience guests were able to see the company dancers in their rehearsal wear: men in shorts with no shirts; ballerinas in simple leotards and tights with no feet, their long hair floating as they danced.

This group of protestors was tied to the organization Building a Better Bellevue, which has advocated an alternate route to Sound Transitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bellevue Way/112th Avenue light-rail alignment. These 50 protests praised Freeman for all he has done for Bellevue. Both protests lasted from 5 p.m. until after 5:30 when it got dark and rain began to fall.

With expectations of more growth downtown, Bellevue has begun a process to reshape its transportation policies. An open house Tuesday at City Hall served as the public kickoff for the Downtown Transportation Plan Update. Bellevue Planning Manager Kevin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill said the public meeting was meant to understand which areas are of most interest to the population. This input along with guidance from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transportation Commission and a consultant team, headed by DKS Associates, will provide technical information and analysis to assist in decision-making. The open house drew approximately 50 people. The plan update will add to the transpor-

tation portion of the Downtown Subarea Plan which was adopted in 2004. The plan update will consider and incorporate forecasted growth in population and employment through 2030. This planning effort will include planned transit improvements such as King County Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RapidRide bus service and East Link lightrail. Other regional projects, including State Route 520 improvements and tolling, also will play a key role in the function of Bellevueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation system. The next special public meeting isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to be held until next year, but the Transportation Commission will discuss the plan at its meetings, the second Thursday of every month. Planners say the update is slated to be finished in 2013.

A dueling group of protests occupied the corner of Bellevue Way and Northeast Eighth Street Wednesday night in response to rampant spending in Bellevue City Council races. The rally was originally planned by Fuse Washington, a progressive public policy group, to protest negative mailers sent out against council candidates Claudia Balducci and John Stokes. The protestors were upset about what they said were negative mailers were sent by a political action committee tied to local developer Kemper Freeman. They accused of attempting to buy an election.
