Jobs on the line as Bellevue faces deficit Bellevue councilmembers are examining a number of ways to resolve a $6.5 million budget deficit. The council Monday reviewed a lengthy list of spending cuts totaling $4.6 million, including the elimination of 17 full-time equivalent positions, six of which would involve layoffs, voluntary separations or voluntary retirements. The proposed reductions come on top of those made last year when the city reduced its workforce by 49 positions and cut $16 million from the budget. The council is expected to decide in the coming weeks on spending cuts and possible fee increases as part of mid-biennium budget update, which includes the 2011-2012 general fund budget, passed in December 2010. Budget writers say they have designed the cuts to minimize direct impacts to the public. In addition to reductions, the council is considering whether to implement an emergency medical services fee for transporting “basic life support” patients to hospitals. The recommendation is for a

transport fee of $600, plus $14 per mile, for patients with less serious ailments, comparable to other cities and fire departments in King County. The new fees would generate an estimated $1 million in additional revenue annually for the city’s general fund, but councilmembers have raised several questions about the proposal and have expressed concern about possible impacts. Also being considered are increases in fees charged by the city’s Development Services Department, which has been hit hard by the recession. In response, 26 positions were eliminated last year and 15 more will be cut in 2012. Development Services depends primarily on user fees, not the general fund, to pay for its operations, and the fee increases would help pay for its core services. If approved, it would be the first fee adjustment since 2009. Councilmembers are scheduled to take action at the Dec. 5 or Dec. 12 meeting, when they vote on several ordinances related to the budget, including a 2012 property tax amount, the Development Services fees, basic life support transport fees, and the mid-biennium budget.

Eastgate annexation blitz Saturday

Snowflakes shine bright along the Bellevue Square Mall a few days after the official opening of Snowflake Lane. The Bellevue tradition dazzles children nightly with live drummers, colorful costumes and enough fake snow to inspire young and old to wish for a white Christmas. Downtown shops are officially decked-out for the holiday shopping season after a busy Black Friday, but all the Christmas cheer didn’t stop the skies from turning blue and a few umbrellas from popping up along sidewalks this week.

Residents and supporters of the Eastgate annexation effort will go door-to-door Saturday to gather signatures from property owners in Eastgate who have not yet signed an annexation petition. More than 700 property owners, representing more than 45 percent of assessed value in Eastgate, have already signed the annexation petition. The 50 percent goal must be reached by Dec. 10. On Saturday, volunteers will help gather the approximately 130 signatures still needed for annexation. The shifts – 9:30 a.m. to noon and 12:30 to 3 p.m. – will start at the South Bellevue Community Center, 14509 SE Newport Way.

Eastgate is one of four unincorporated areas in South Bellevue that may be annexed by the City of Bellevue next year. County Executive Dow Constantine supports the proposed South Bellevue annexation, noting that the county can no longer afford to maintain current service levels in unincorporated urban areas. “The benefits of annexation are many: lower property taxes; increased level of essential services, direct access to city programs and services at the local level; effective land use, transportation and parks planning,” Constantine said. To volunteer or to sign a petition, contact Neighborhood Outreach at 425-452-6836.

Residents to walk, talk about downtown The public is invited to join city planners Saturday for a walk downtown to help the city identify ways to improve the pedestrian experience. Findings from this walk, and one held yesterday, will be used in the Downtown Transportation Plan Update,

a comprehensive look at transportation strategy to accommodate expected growth downtown throughout the next two decades. The walk tomorrow will begin at 9 a.m. with an overview presentation at Top Pot Doughnuts (10600 NE Ninth Pl.) and

will take about 90 minutes. If it’s raining, participants should bring rain gear or an umbrella; the walk will go rain or shine, following a route on the north side of downtown. People will be asked to share their experiences of the walk afterward.

A fuel tanker spilled more than 3,500 gallons of fuel after it crashed into a barrier on northbound Interstate 405 in Bellevue Sunday night. At approximately 9:50 p.m., a car attempting to enter the freeway from Northeast Eighth Street spun out of control, hitting the tanker. The vehicle was attempting to cross multiple lanes of traffic when it hit the tanker, which was knocked into a jersey barrier on the side of the road. Lee & Eastes Tank Lines estimated there

EDITORIAL

ith La NiĂąa expected to make a return trip to the Northwest this winter, now is not the time to be complacent. La NiĂąa is defined as cooler than normal seasurface temperatures in the central and eastern tropical Pacific ocean that impact global weather patterns, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “The Pacific Northwest is more likely to be wetter than normal in the late fall and early winter with the presence of a well-established La NiĂąa,â€? according to the administration’s website. Remember last November’s La NiĂąa snow storm that hit right before Thanksgiving? Or what about last December’s record rainfall that forced the Snoqualmie River to flood? It could happen again this year. Forecasters already predicted the snowfall we saw in the mountains last weekend. With La NiĂąa ready to bear her ugly head again, it’s time to “Take Winter by Storm.â€? It’s more than just a catchy phrase — it’s a call to action. “Take Winter by Stormâ€? is a four-county effort, including King County, urging families to create emergency-preparedness kits in the home, workplace and vehicle — just in case you are out driving when the worst of the weather hits. The kits should include flashlights and extra batteries, warm blankets, rain gear and copies of important documents, among other important things. The “Take Winter by Stormâ€? website — www. takewinterbystorm.org — suggests residents take these three steps to get ready: t$SFBUFBOFNFSHFODZQSFQBSFEOFTTLJUXJUI at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food and water for your home and office. Kits prepared for vehicle road travel and winter weather evacuation go-kits are also advised. t.BLFBQMBOBOEQSBDUJDFUIFQMBOXJUI your family and those who depend on you. t4UBZJOGPSNFEBOELOPXUIFXFBUIFSBQ proaching so you are prepared for whatever .PUIFS/BUVSFUISPXTPVSXBZ The website offers other tools to help families get ready for another harsh winter. Recent stories in The Reporter noted how cities are prepared for the storms. That preparedness is something individuals should take to heart, too. Don’t be left out in the cold — or the dark — this winter, make a plan and execute it when La NiĂąa makes her expected appearance this holiday season.

Some options to balance budget Since the governor does not like her options in meeting the next $2 billion hole in the state budget, here are some that should have been considered at the beginning of the recession. 1. Reduce the size of governmental agencies. Experience has shown that the more tax money we throw at governmental agencies the more inefficient and wasteful they become. The number of cell phones we provide to government employees and the number of unused or phones on high cost plans is staggering – that is just the tip of the iceberg. Why should I support more tax money given to bureaucrats who mismanage it? 2. Give the voters a line item list of annual governmental costs, and we will tell the governor where to cut, and it will not be education, as long as the educators can guide the value of education and not the unions. Politicians scare us with threats of cuts to education, fire, police and the “vulnerable,� but hide PSJHOPSFBMMUIFXBTUFGVMTQFOEJOH.PSFUBYFT should not even be considered until we get a chance to vote on individual line items that need to be cut without hurting essential services. 3. Undo the give away on taxes that she gave to the gambling industry on the Indian reservations.

However, what we didn’t know, however, was UIBU.BUUIFXDBNFVQXJUIUIFCFTUTPMVUJPO When he saw the wallet on the ground, he turned it in to the Factoria police station. Officer Rob Wood at the station took custody of the

wallet for safekeeping. With that and a school I.D., Officer Wood was able to return the wallet to our son. He was also helpful in enabling us to DPOUBDU.BUUIFXBOEUIBOLIJNEJSFDUMZ Our son got his wallet back on Halloween afternoon, just in time for him to join in the evening festivities.

A tough, but welcome vote A lot of us express our frustration at the state of Washington, D.C., politics: the partisanship, the gridlock and the lack of action to help our economy grow. So when our elected officials take a bold, brave vote on behalf of our state, it’s just as important to make sure they see our appreciation. 3FDFOUMZ 4FOT1BUUZ.VSSBZBOE.BSJB Cantwell, and Rep. Dave Reichert all voted in favor of the free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama. These free trade agreements represent the most significant progress on trade in the last 15 years, and have the potential to significantly increase jobs and economic opportunity for our state. These agreements lower or eliminate tariffs on everything from industrial products to consumer goods in some of the most important markets for our state; South Korea, for example, is our state’s 4th largest trading partner. The three faced great pressure to oppose these measures, and we should be grateful for their willingness to take tough votes on that will benefit our state’s economy. So, on behalf of businesses and citizens in the 8th Congressional District, I wanted to take a moment to thank them publicly and I invite others to join me.

Habitat Bellevue a top spot for scientists, engineers restored at Nearly half of Bellevue’s residents who have college degrees earned them in science and engineering, putting the city in the top 11 percent in the country for that category, according to census data. Confirming Bellevue’s place as a national high-tech hub, data from the 2010 American Community Survey also reveal that the city has the sixth highest percentage of residents with degrees specifically in computer science, mathematics and statistics (12 percent). “With this kind of workforce, we’re in a pretty enviable place in today’s knowledge economy,� said Planning Director Dan Stroh. The city’s Planning & Community Development Department tracks Bellevue’s demographics to stay abreast of the community’s social and economic needs. Learn more at http://www.bellevuewa. gov/demographics.htm. The American Community Survey, an ongoing survey from the U.S. Census Bureau, provides regular data on how Americans live, including their education, housing and jobs. Additional estimates from the ACS, which summarized

data from about 550 of the largest cities throughout the nation, include: Bellevue had one of the lowest percentages of residents with a degree in education (5 percent), compared to 14 percent nationwide. 21 percent of city residents majored in the arts and humanities and 19 percent majored in business, similar to percentages nationwide (22 and 20 percent respectively). Bellevue was among the bottom half of cities for the percentage of residents with a degree in psychology (2 percent), compared with 5 percent nationwide. The high percentage of residents with degrees in science and engineering generally reflects the distribution of jobs in Bellevue, with science and engineering industries comprising over 40 percent of all jobs here. Earlier this month, Forbes Magazine ranked the SeattleBellevue-Everett metro area the No. 1 region for high-tech job growth in the nation, based on long- and short-term job numbers.

Chism Beach More than eight acres of land at Chism Beach Park overrun with ivy and other invasive plants are being restored, with more than 100 volunteers and the city’s garbage hauler pitching in for the cause. Non-native plants are a problem in many wooded areas across the city. Sprawling

with lightning speed, ivy, blackberry bushes and other plants have invaded forested areas of Chism Beach, degrading the habitat at one of Bellevue’s popular waterfront parks, located at 9600 SE 11th St. on Lake Washington. The Parks & Community Services Department contracted with EarthCorps, a nonprofit international youth organization that specializes in natural area restoration, to pull the ivy and plant native plants in its place, over a seven-month period, from September to next April. Working in partnership with the city, EarthCorps incorporates volunteer events too, with more than 130 volunteers pulling ivy on Stewardship Saturdays and Eco Friday events.

AT&T drops bid for T-Mobile BY NAT LEVY

nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

AT&T has ended its $39 billion bid to acquire Bellevue-based T-Mobile. AT&T, the world’s second largest mobile carrier, withdrew its merger application with the Federal Communication Commission on Nov. 25 after Julius Genachowski, the chairman of the commission, said the merger did not meet the commission’s standard for approval. Genachowski recommended sending the case to a hearing, the first step toward a commission move to block the deal. “The FCC’s action today is disappointing,� AT&T Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications Larry Solomon said in a statement this week. “It is yet another example of a government agency acting to prevent billions in new investment and the creation of many thousands of new jobs at a time when the U.S. economy desperately needs both.� Both AT&T and Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile’s parent company, affirmed their desire to complete the deal. The two companies said they will focus on a February antitrust trial to settle a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Justice Department in September. As a result of this development, AT&T will charge $4 billion against its earnings

in preparation for a potential breakup fee that would go to Deutsche Telekom if the deal falls through. Despite AT&T’s withdrawal of its application, the FCC elected this week to release a staff report with extremely negative conclusions about the merger. According to the FCC report, the proposed merger would hurt wireless competition in the U.S. It also disputes claims made by AT&T and T-Mobile that the merger would create more jobs and lead to an increase in LTE broadband networks throughout the country. AT&T said all the issues the FCC describes were those that would have been settled at a hearing, but now the hearing won’t take place, but the damaging claims are out there. “It has no force or effect under law, which raises questions as to why the FCC would choose to release it,� AT&T Executive Vice President of External and Legislative Affairs Jim Cicconi said of the report. “The draft report has also not been made available to AT&T prior to today, so we have had no opportunity to address or rebut its claims, which makes its release all the more improper.�

Thank you Council Member Degginger! Cascade Water Alliance is honored to recognize and thank Bellevue Council member Grant Degginger for more than a decade of service to this organization. During his tenure as a representative to Cascade, Grant was instrumental in ensuring Bellevue and the Eastside will have municipal drinking water for the rest of the century. As chair of the Board of Directors and Public Affairs Committee, Grant oversaw groundbreaking agreements with the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe and the Puyallup Tribe of Indians that enhanced fish habitat while at the same time secured Lake Tapps in Pierce County as a reservoir and future water supply source for the region. With his political and legal acumen, Grant helped get critical legislation passed in Olympia to give Cascade the same rights granted to other utilities in the state, and to create the Joint Municipal Utility Services Authority so entities like Cascade can be formed to provide cost effective services to the public.

Investor pleads guilty to wire fraud scheme A 32-year-old investor pleaded guilty last week to defrauding at least 10 clients of more than $7 million. Prosecutors recommended a sentence of 78 months in prison for Richard A. Finger, a Bellevue resident, and owner of Black Diamond Capital Management in Kirkland. He will be sentenced in U.S. District court Feb. 17, 2012, where the amount of restitution to the victims will be decided. Court documents detail multiple instances in which clients invested with Finger, and he told them investments were growing, when in reality they were falling rapidly. One victim investor placed nearly $700,000 with Finger for investments. When he moved from the Seattle brokerage to his own firm, he provided the client with phony statements showing his account was

worth more than $1.2 million account was worth less than $5,500. The plea agreement further details how a second client lost much of the $1 million invested with Finger. In early June 2011, and by the end of the month, the account had lost $160,000 due to trades, and was charged an additional $400,000 in commissions. By mid July 2011, the account was worth less than $225,000. This second client and at least nine others were provided statements by email. The emailed statements were false, but were made to appear legitimate by following the format of the clearing firm Finger used to place the trades. Finger transferred hundreds of thousands of dollars from the brokerage accounts to his own personal checking account.

Dr. Jennifer Edwards is a family practice physician at Overlake Medical Clinics Issaquah. Before joining Overlake, Edwards worked as a core faculty member at Mercy Redding Family Practice Residency Program in Redding, Calif.

Stokes-Laing Bellevue City Council race headed to hand recount of votes BY NAT LEVY nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

Bellevue residents have waited more than three weeks to find out who will be their seventh, and final, City Council member. That wait will have to continue. The race between Parks and Community Services Board member and retired attorney John Stokes, and land-use

Love blooms for the holidays.

attorney Aaron Laing will be subject to a recount by hand of the nearly 35,000 ballots received from Bellevue. The candidates are vying for the seat formerly held by Grant Degginger, who decided not to run for reelection. Kim Van Ekstrom, spokeswoman for King County Elections, said the recount will begin at 9 a.m., Dec. 8 with a likely conclusion on Dec. 11 or 12. Laing has been close behind throughout the race, but has never been able to grab the lead. He said he was proud of the campaign he ran, and he showed optimism that the recount could swing the race his way. “I think the fact that it is a mandatory hand recount, they wouldn’t require it if there wasn’t some chance that it would turn around,” he said. Stokes, who has led the race wire-to-wire, said he expected a recount. He feels good about the job King County Elections has done in counting the votes and doesn’t expect much to change. “I’m confident in the end, we’ll still be ahead, so we’re just going through with the process,” he said. State law stipulates that the margin between the two candidates to necessitate a hand recount must be less than 150 votes, and .25 percent of the vote. A machine recount happens with a margin less than 2,000 votes and .5 percent. With the final tally in Monday night, Stokes led the race by a count of 15,239 votes (49.93 percent) to 15,188 votes (49.76 percent) for Laing. Laing closed the gap quickly on the final day. Results released Monday evening showed Stokes with a 110-vote lead, but in the final count, Laing received 100 votes to Stokes’ 41 to cut the margin. County staff will work through three other recounts from this election. A council race in Des Moines was close enough to trigger a machine recount, while races for the Enumclaw School District and the Public Hospital District will be recounted by hand In the 2011 election, Bellevue voters returned 35,865 ballots, or nearly 54 percent.

Political groups, and many voters, made Bellevue’s election a partial referendum on the East Link light-rail project, which has been a dividing point on the council. On election night, Nov. 8, Stokes opened the evening with a 127-vote lead that fluctuated from a high close to 200 votes, all the way down to the final margin of 51 when the election was certified Tuesday. The margin ended up being less than the number of write-in ballots submitted in the race, 95. Van Ekstrom could not say whether a hand recount in King County has swung an election recently. Along with the larger number of votes in this recount, King County has dealt with few hand recounts since the vote-by-mail system came into play in 2009. Van Ekstrom said the mail system is more reliable than voting booths, so the recount will serve to look for a significant mistake in the counting process. “Since we have been administering within this environment there’s not been a long track record,” she said. “In a vote-by-mail environment, there’s less of an opportunity for human error to occur, but it could of course.”

Craigslist ad leads men to find dead body Two men answering an ad on Craigslist for a room for rent in the 15800 block of SE Fifth Place in Bellevue instead found the body of a man who had been dead for two or more days. A crying four-year old boy answered the door and told the men he could not wake up his dad, which prompted them to take him to a neighbor’s home. When the men returned they discovered the body of the boy’s father and called police, according to Bellevue Police Lt. Marcia Harnden. It is unclear when the man died and while police do not currently suspect foul play, there is an investigation into the cause of his death and the circumstances surrounding it. The mother of the child does not live with the father and was out of town when the discovery was made. The child was taken to stay with grandparents. His father has been identified as Matthew Steckler, 36.

Sacred Heart recently shipped 270 sweatshirts with the old logo to the primary school in Mayocunda, a village in the state of Chinandega in northwestern Nicaragua. Another 225 sweatshirts will be on their way soon. A volunteer organization, Somos Ohana Nicaragua, assisted Sacred Heart in coordinating the donation. COURTESY PHOTO continued to send sexually suggestive messages to the agent. The Naval service followed up on the exchange, obtaining Watson’s information from Yahoo! and Comcast. NCIS agents seized several of his computers, and they also uncovered another sexually explicit exchange. Watson allegedly sent messages to someone claiming to be a 14-year-old girl. Further investigation showed that the a man convicted of child molestation was masquerading as the 14-year-old girl. Watson admitted to the message exchanges during interviews with authorities, according to court documents.

Todd still flying under the radar BY JOSH SUMAN jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

from 200104 that cemented the program as one of the best in the Connor Foreman state stand out. “Ever since I was little,” Foreman said. “I’ve looked up to the program and how amazing it was.” Foreman elected not to play football last season, focusing instead of baseball. But watching his older brother Michael earn AllState honors and help Bellevue to a third-straight state championship had Connor squarely focused on getting back to the gridiron this season. After missing a portion of the win over Lakes and the entirety of last week’s semi-final victory over Kamiakin with a head injury, the younger Foreman is eager for one last run with the group he grew up dreaming of being part of.

At first glance, it might be tempting to slight Jordan Todd because of his stature. Unless that first glance came while the Interlake senior was on a football field. Todd, who broke Matthias Wilson’s (1997) single-season state rushing record of 2,676 yards in the 2A state quarterfinals with 359 yards against Lynden (for a total of 2,681 in 2011), has been dealing with the stigma that comes with being a 5-foot-7 running back throughout his prep career. “I try my best to compete with everyone who is larger,” Todd said. “I’m never not going to try because someone is bigger than I am.” Interlake coach Jason Rimkus has witnessed countless moments during his two seasons at the helm for the Saints to reinforce that assertion, including durJordan Todd ing this year’s game against Mount Si. After redirecting his path down the Interlake sideline, Todd (as he is wont to do) eluded a pair of defenders before being wrapped up from behind by another. “He still had ahold of Jordan’s jersey and I thought he was going to take him down,” Rimkus said. “But Jordan just kept those roadrunner feet going. He must have dragged the kid 10 or 15 yards.” While breaking tackles and outrunning defenders to the end zone has become commonplace for Todd, it’s his willingness to play larger than his listed height and weight that have impressed his coaches and teammates the most. Mount Si, which earned the third and final 3A playoff berth from the conference, also boasted Oregon State commit Josh Mitchell, widely considered one of the top lineman prospects in the state. On at least one occasion, the 5-foot-7, 170 pound Todd got an up-close look at Mitchell, who is listed at 6-foot-3, 273 pounds. As the Saints’ offensive line slanted the pass protection away from Mitchell’s side, there was only one player left standing between him and the backfield. “He comes off the edge and you could just see Jordan say, ‘alright, whatever,” Rimkus said. “He just stuck his nose right in there. That was kind of a signature play of his for me.” While Todd has developed into one of the top offensive players in the area on the field, he also became a leader away from the gridiron in the offseason. “He really grew into being a leader,” Rimkus said. “He never came off like, ‘I’m the star, listen to me.” After first taking a football field at age 7 at the recommendation of his father, who played semi-pro ball in the area, Todd said he truly fell in love with the game during his sophomore year at Interlake. The past two seasons have only added to that passion and there is no longer any doubt

Running down a dream One more win ensures Bellevue seniors’ championship legacy

Scoreboard Bellevue won its 15th consecutive state playoff game, 21-10 over Kamiakin at Lampson Stadium in Kennewick, to punch its ticket to tonight’s 3A state championship game against O’Dea at 7:30 p.m. in the Tacoma Dome. Running back John Nguyen got his team on the board with a third quarter score after the Wolverines were shutout in the first half. Tyler Hasty and Joey Moore also added touchdown runs in the second half. A win tonight will give Bellevue a fourth straight class 3A title and a second four-peat since 2001. The program also won four straight from 2001-04. The undefeated Irish were the last program to beat the Wolverines in the state tournament, 27-17 back in the 2007 state semi-finals.

BY JOSH SUMAN jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

When Bellevue and O’Dea meet tonight in the Tacoma Dome for the 3A state football championship, it will be the culmination of a season and a chance to once again claim the ultimate prize. For many of the Bellevue seniors, it will be much more. The graduating class of 2012 has never finished a high school football season without a state title. The program has gone 15-0 in state tournament games during their time and each knows that regardless of the result, tonight will be the end of a long journey as a Bellevue football player that

extends well beyond high school. “I’ve been playing games on Matt Gilbert this field since third grade,” linebacker Matt Gilbert said. “The last practice I’ll ever be out here is this week. It’s a weird feeling.” Gilbert and defensive back Connor Foreman began playing together with the Junior Wolverines the same year, with Foreman’s father as the coach. Like many in the Bellevue program, they have grown up together waiting for their chance to lead the program to another state title and continue the legacy they admired as youngsters. Both talked about memories of the program from their youth.

What’s happening in sports and recreation

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL STUDENT TAKES PART IN FIRST TEE FUTURE LEADERS FORUM Bellevue resident and International School student Alex LaChasse has been involved with The First Tee of Greater Seattle, an organization teaching character development through golf, since 2005. That involvement recently paid off with a trip to Disney World and a visit with professional golf legend Annika Sorenstam. Through The First Tee, LaChasse and Stacie Chan of Beacon Hill were among 50 students from around the world who took part in the “Future Leaders Forum” at Disney World. The immersion training gave participants a chance to network with others connected to golf through business, science and other methods. “I especially liked learning about the

many elements of leadership involved within the golf industry and learning how a company like Disney operates,” LaChasse said. He completed an application process that included an essay on future plans and aspirations as part of the selection process.

BELLEVUE COLLEGE PITCHER IS TOP JUNIOR COLLEGE PLAYER IN AMERICA Perfect Game USA, which is touted as “Baseball’s Largest Scouting Service,” has published a list of the top 100 junior college baseball players for 2012 and Bellevue College pitcher Adrian Sampson is at the top. Sampson, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound right handed pitcher and graduate of Skyline High School helped the Bulldogs to the NWAACC championship.

Jordan Todd: ‘I just want to play’ “I want a good atmosphere,” Todd said. “And four more fun years playing football.” While it’s easy to assume the state’s most prolific rushing total would come with a big-time football scholarship, the reality of Todd’s situation is slightly less glamorous. Despite proving throughout his prep career he can carry the load against top-notch competition in the rugged 3A KingCo Conference, major Division-I programs rarely reach for a player without the ideal mix of size, speed and production. Currently, Todd is weighing his options and remaining patient with a process that can quickly become frustrating. The only scholarship offer he holds is from New Mexico Highlands University, a Division II school where former Interlake coach Sheldon Cross is on staff. Central

Washington University has also expressed interest and Todd plans to visit both in January. Rimkus said he has also heard from Wayne State University, Navy, Eastern Washington and believes there is interest from Eastern Oregon, where former Saint J.T. Capers began his collegiate career this season. For Todd, the most important factors are solid programs in his potential majors of business and physical education and the family atmosphere that he has become so accustomed to with Rimkus and the Interlake program. “I don’t want to just say, ‘they gave me a scholarship, so I’m going to go there,” Todd said. “I want good academics, mainly.”

O’Dea gave Bellevue its last loss in playoffs “It’s been special for me, I’ve enjoyed every minute of it,” Foreman said of his return to football this season. “Now, we’ve got to finish.” That will be no easy task against an O’Dea program that is unbeaten in 2011 and handed the Wolverines their last loss in the playoffs, 27-17 back in the 2007 state semi-finals. Bellevue quarterback and defensive back Tyler Hasty knows the Irish better than most after spending his first two years of high school at O’Dea. “I’ve still got a couple friends over there and we always joke around, saying, ‘I hope we see you in the championship,” Hasty said. “I had my birthday last week and we were talking a little smack.” The Wovlerines’ senior said he has no regrets about switching allegiances for his final two prep seasons. But after being on the inside of the O’Dea program, Hasty knows capturing another title will be a stiff test. “O’Dea is not a highscoring team, but they do the little things right,” Hasty said. “They’re not going to make any mistakes, so we’ve got to limit our mental lapses.” But despite the familiar faces across the line of scrimmage, Hasty said he has remained concerned on his own team’s execution more than oneupping his friends and former teammates. “I’m trying to just stay focused,” Hasty said. “We just need to do what we do like every other week.”

Bellevue adding new online permitting tools Bellevue will be among the first cities to add new online permitting tools for complex project applications. Until recently the online permits available through MyBuildingPermit.com were simple, over-the-counter permits that did not require any plan review. The online permitting service can now accept and issue mechanical, electrical, plumbing and reroof permits that require plan review. This

new change is expected to save businesses significant time and money. Other jurisdictions to implement the new service are Burien, Kirkland and Snohomish County. The traditional permitting process requires the applicant to print multiple copies of the construction plans for each permit application. When revisions are necessary during permit review, new copies must be produced and submitted for final approval. For large projects this can cost thousands of dollars, consume large amounts of paper, and require multiple trips to City Hall. By making it possible to submit all permit documents and plan sets online, applicants will realize significant savings and have the added

convenience of submitting documents at any time. Providing plan review for mechanical, electrical, plumbing and reroof permit types is only the initial phase of a project that will expand to include most development permits. By the end of 2012 online plan review will expand to include building, fire, right-of-way, utilities, and land use permit types. The MyBuildingPermit.com member jurisdictions now include Bellevue, Mill Creek, Kenmore, Bothell, Woodinville, Kirkland, Mercer Island, Issaquah, Renton, Sammamish, Snoqualmie, Burien and Snohomish County covering a total population of over 800,000 residents and businesses.

GIRL ABOUT TOWN

Shen Yun: 7:30 p.m., Feb. 7-8 at McCaw HallI If you’re familiar with the Girl About Town, you know she loves all things Asiany and all things dancey. Shen Yun, my friends, is the ultimate combination of the two – a performance that will leave you breathless. This New-York based dance troupe is made up of performers who are so physically gifted, they could be ballerinas or Olympic gymnasts if they weren’t already practitioners of classical Chinese dance, one of the most demanding art forms in the world. They move in poetic arrangements (and magnificent costumes) that evoke pastoral beauty, imperial drama, and the glory of an ancient civilization. 321 Mercer St., Seattle. 888-615-3828, www.shenyunperformingarts.orgvideos.

Music Blake Shelton: March 9, time TBA, at KeyArena All the hipsters may hate me for this. But I am slowly coming to the realization that, dare I say it, I DO like country music. Even pop country. Who can resist, “feeling like a woman” with Shania Twain or “saying goodbye to Earl” with the Dixie Chicks. And of course, even if you’d rather

Shen Yun is coming to Seattle’s McCaw Hall. Courtesy photo go any musical direction but western, there’s no denying greats like Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn and Johnny Cash. Shelton actually won my heart from how tender he was as a mentor to Dia Frampton and Sia on “The Voice.” But I do think his song “Honey Bee” is pretty catchy. 401 1st Ave. N, Seattle. 206-684-7200, www.keyarena. com/.

Family “Beauty and the Beast”: Times vary, Feb. 21-26 at Paramount Theatre When I was a kid, I tried to direct a production of “Beauty and the Beast” featuring my cousins who were in town for the holidays. Much to my disappointment, no one was dedicated to the grueling daily rehearsals. Our parents chatted through the makeshift performance as we danced around the living room in dress-up clothes, singing “Be Our Guest” while the Disney movie played in the background. Maybe our moms and dads would have preferred the real-deal production, which is coming up in February, and includes performers who are likely to be more experienced than my cast of undisciplined 9-year-olds. 911 Pine St., Seattle. 206-467-5510, www. beautyandthebeastontour.com.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turokâ&#x20AC;? is more than a first-person shooter video game with a cult following. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a musical suite. As the Native American hero, Turok, fights dinosaurs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the soundtrack of his journey is marked by bombastic percussion, repetitive motifs in string and brass fanfares; then it slows down with long melodies for cellos and french horns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The suite has a nice shape to it,â&#x20AC;? said Teresa Metzger-Howe, Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra music director and conductor. The soundtrack from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turok 2,â&#x20AC;? as well as music from the movies â&#x20AC;&#x153;How to Train Your Dragonâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Incredibles,â&#x20AC;? will be presented as part of the Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (BYSO) 46thâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season, â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Classics.â&#x20AC;?

Church of Bellevue. Metzger-Howe said after presenting old masterworks last year, she wanted to give the musicians a full spectrum, which is why she has picked music that was written from 2000 to the present day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to have the opportunity to work on the greats that have survived through the centuries. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a great opportunity when musicians have the opportunity work with living composers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as Eastsider, Darren Mitchell, who composed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turok 2â&#x20AC;? and has become one of the renowned audio designers in the interactive gaming industry. Mitchell attended some of the BYSO rehearsals. While the musicians, who range in age from 6 to high-school age and are divided into different programs based on age and instrument, love classical music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting to play songs from video games they play and movies they watch, Metzger-Howe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They love it. I think it sort of sets our organization apart that we are playing music that is very accessible.â&#x20AC;?

Missing childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents had troubled past BY MATT PHELPS Reporter Newspapers

The case of missing 2-year-old Sky Metalwala has baffled authorities for weeks. Investigators have not ruled out any possible theories as to what happened to the boy, despite more than 1,000 tips from the public and expanding the search. Julia Biryukova, the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, has told police that she left the boy in the car after it ran out of gas in Bellevue on Nov. 6. She claims to have walked with her daughter to get help and when she returned the boy was gone. As the investigation into Skyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whereabouts has largely focused on the parents, Reporter Newspapers took a closer look at the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contentious past. This is the first of a two-part series that examines the parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contentious marriage and allegations against each other.

Marital conflict Domestic violence has allegedly followed Biryukova, who was born in Russia and became a U.S. citizen in 1999. She described in court documents daily beatings from her parents during much of her childhood. She felt like she could not do anything right, as she was also taken for a variation of electroconvulsive shock treatment in Russia for punitive reasons, according to court records. Biryukova describes being â&#x20AC;&#x153;controlledâ&#x20AC;? by Solomon as well. Hundreds of King County Court documents illustrate Biryukova and Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial and marital struggles. The couple met in 1997 when Biryukova, a 15-year-old Bellevue High School sophomore, was invited to a party by Solomon, 21. The coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s romantic relationship began shortly after and they separated in March of 2010. She told Stephen J. Cummings, a licensed clinical psychologist in Seattle, that soon after she met Solomon, she learned he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;very controlling, declared himself to be a Christ-like figure who had great persuasive skills due to his charisma. An emotional abuse pattern insidiously set in whereby Julia gradually became dependent upon Solomon for her very identity and self esteem,â&#x20AC;? the court documents continue. A Kirkland police report showed a possible beginning to conflict as early as 1999. Officers were called to a gas station in response to a

couple arguing loudly. The report states that the boyfriend and girlfriend were arguing about where to go that night, but the name of the man claiming to be Biryukovaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boyfriend is Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Sulaiman. But Biryukova states in court documents that she has been with only Solomon since 1997. Biryukova began working at Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family business, Kings Street Kafe Sky Metalwala in Pioneer Square. By the time she graduated from high school, they purchased a $265,000 Bellevue condo and moved in together.

Business, interests united couple At first, the couple was passionate about running their business. They enjoyed yoga, kickboxing, jogging at the Bellevue Downtown Park, movies, cooking, spending time with friends and each other, according to court documents. But the nature of the relationship changed in 2003, as the couple was seemingly forced to get married. Testimony in court documents states the couple married on Feb. 10, 2003, in Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen after Biryukova was approached with an ultimatum - marry Solomon or never see him again after his deportation to Pakistan. It is unclear why Solomon faced deportation. Biryukova states in court documents that she hid her reason for marrying Solomon from her parents until 2010. The coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial woes, which contributed to their separation, began in 2005-2006 â&#x20AC;&#x153;as a competitor with a deli moved in next door to us, causing real economic loss from our anticipated and previously received income average. Subsequently, with the economic downturn, business became even slower,â&#x20AC;? Solomon testified. But that did not stop the couple from purchasing an

$860,000 home in Kirkland in 2008, along with the mortgage payments for the Bellevue condo. Biryukova has also apparently called into question her ex-husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement in their sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappearance. Recently, ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Good Morning America (GMA) claimed to have corresponded with someone using Biryukovaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s email. It has not been confirmed that the email response to GMA was from Biryukova, a family member or if the email was hacked. But the respondent directly accuses her ex-husband, Solomon Metalwala, of being involved in the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappearance.â&#x20AC;&#x153;My former husband is a sadistic Muslim Pakistani,â&#x20AC;? the respondent wrote to GMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Neil Karlinksky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one has any idea. This is all too difficult.â&#x20AC;? However, this response contradicts the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past, as seen through court documents.

Conversion to Christianity an issue Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversion to Christianity is a point of conflict in the deterioration of their marriage, according to court documents. Biryukova claims that Solomon became a born-again Christian in 2005 and that she felt his family resented her for his conversion, the documents continue. [ more SKY METALWALA page 18 ]

person comment, including eight public hearings held at locations across King County. More than 80 people testified in person and over 160 provided written testimony. The committee also sought comments from elected officials from all 39 cities and the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state legislators asking for them to share their expertise and insight on the communities they represent. Testimony resulted in numerous changes to the rough drafts released in June. For example, the committee revised earlier drafts in order to keep the northend suburban cities in one district. The committee also adopted internal rules to encourage transparency in their process. For instance, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rule 5â&#x20AC;? required committee members to disclose at a public committee meeting the substance and context of any contacts with County Councilmembers, the County Executive, or any of their staff or representatives. Also to promote openness, several of the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public meetings were work sessions where committee members worked interactively with the districting master to explore their redistricting ideas.

The King County Districting Committee last month unanimously approved new King County Council district boundaries. The district plan, which has been filed with the Clerk of the Council and is effective immediately, leaves Bellevue residents unchanged. District 6, which includes Bellevue residents north of I-90, adds territory in Redmond, to the west of Willows Road. District 9 still includes Bellevue south of I-90 and Newcastle, along with small cities of southeast King County as a group. Plan materials are online at www.kingcounty.gov/ districting. At each stage of the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-monthlong process, the members requested ideas and input from the public. The Committee provided more than 20 opportunities for in-

Forest Deity Local sculptor Dudley Carter carved â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forest Deityâ&#x20AC;? in Bellevue Square in the late 1940s. For the next two decades, the sculpture was the unofficial symbol of Bellevue. It appeared on promotional materials, souvenirs, and even dinner tables. The ice sculpture seen here was the centerpiece on a buffet table at Bellevueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crabapple Restaurant, Aug. 30, 1957. Heritage Corner is a feature in the Bellevue Reporter.

State Patrol warns about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;driving drowsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Every teen and adult driver is very aware of the dangers of drinking and driving, and now even texting while driving. But driving drowsy is just as serious and can be just as devastating as driving while intoxicated, according to the Washington State Patrol. In 2010, there were 17 people killed and 74 seriously injured in Washington State because motorists were either drowsy or had fallen asleep while driving, the Patrol said. Estimates from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say that nationally drowsy driving results in 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and more than 100,000 accidents each year. There are warning signs when motorists are tired or experiencing drowsy driving such as: trouble keeping their eyes open and focused, and/or heavy eyelids; difficulty keeping their head up; drifting from their lane, swerving, tailgating and/or hitting rumble strips; inability to clearly remember the last few miles driven; missing traffic signs or driving past their exit; yawning repeatedly and rubbing their eyes; feeling irritable or restless.

City Church in Kirkland has been supportive to both parents Parishioners at City Church in Kirkland, where the couple began attending in 2005, did not question his faith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have been members of the church,â&#x20AC;? said Troy Anderson, associate pastor and general counsel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And some of our members have reached out to them.â&#x20AC;? The City Church community held a special prayer Nov. 9 for the missing 2-year-old Redmond boy. Anderson said the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kids attended sunday school at the church. The couple also attended divorce-care meetings at the church, according to court documents. A member of City Church also played a big part in attempting to mediate conflict between the couple and transferring the children from one party to the other during a bitter custody fight. That fight included allegations against each other that Biryukova suffered from psychiatric issues and that Solomon was abusive.

The final story in this two-part series will examine abuse allegations they made against each other.
