Skip Rowley’s plan |

78 acres 4.4 million square feet, totally developed 10-story buildings, or 12 with LEED certification. Up to 1,700 housing units

Long-time developer has a vision for part of downtown Issaquah, but some wonder, ‘why the rush?’ BY CELESTE GRACEY CGRACEY@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

When Issaquah wanted a new library on Front Street, it got developer Skip Rowley’s vote. When it wanted a new community center, it got his money. Now the city wants to redevelop its valley floor, marked by sprawling parking lots, and it has turned to Rowley’s vision of high-density and mixed-use buildings. He wants City Council to OK a plan to redevelop 78 acres he owns. And, he wants the council to do it six months before it approves the wider-reaching Central Issaquah Plan, which would shape downtown development over the next 30 years. The plans share the same vision, but as details in Rowley’s agreement come out, some are beginning to question whether it protects the environment and low-income families as the framers of the CIP first envisioned. Mary Lynch, who helped draft the CIP, is among a few that worry Rowley is pushing for quick passage of his agreement to avoid more restrictive codes in the CIP plan. No one can say for sure, because the CIP is still under review. While city planners are pushing their Dec. 19 deadline for the Rowley Agreement, council members have been scrambling to understand the plan and how it would affect the environment. In responding to councilmember questions, Rowley’s message has been clear: his family can be trusted with a more flexible plan of its own. “We’ve done a lot of things to make this a better community,” Rowley says. Behind him several tall windows look out from the Issaquah office to a private park dedicated to his mother, Pat. “We are attached.” For some, trust in the family isn’t enough. The agreement is written for the land, not the family, said Tola Marts, a city councilmember who chairs the land and shore committee. “We’re setting up a pretty extraordinary

Skip Rowley has a bold vision for his 78 acres in central Issaquah, and is hoping the City Council will approve his development agreement Dec. 19. However, some have questioned why it should supercede a larger plan for the whole area. CELESTE GRACEY, ISSAQUAH & SAMMAMISH REPORTER

agreement for a unique developer, and I want to make sure the public benefit is clear, because, quite frankly, people’s plans change.” The Rowley plan allows for up to 4.4 million square feet of housing, commercial and retail space. It could include up to 1,700 housing units. The tallest buildings can be 12 stories, if they’re built LEED certified.

FIRST IN While the city would get millions from the agreement, its interests go deeper than Rowley’s pockets. His 78 acres can

be developed in a way that is more cohesive than any other property. It could set the stage for development for the rest of central Issaquah. For Rowley, creating a separate development agreement is important because it gives his company certain sureties over the next 30 years. It also allows the city to be more sensitive to what’s financially feasible for Rowley. There are no advantages to going first, he says, because the plans are parallel. “Why wait?” he asks.

Former Sammamish principal in line for superintendentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job LWSD School Board chooses Dr. Traci Pierce as preferred candidate in superintendent search Dr. Traci Pierce, a former teacher and principal at Inglewood Junior High School in Sammamish, is the preferred choice to become the next superintendent of the Lake Washington School District. The board made Pierce is unanimous choice Dec. 5 and will introduce her to the community through a series of public events and will ask for input on Dr. Traci Pierce her candidacy. A calendar of events and timing for a final vote on hiring will be determined after the holidays. The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superintendent, Dr. Chip Kimball, is leaving to become superintendent of the Singapore American School on July 1, 2012. Pierce now serves as the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy superintendent in instructional services. In making its decision, board members stressed the need for continuity in the face of several major initiatives, including the change in grade configuration next fall and the creation of a science, technology, engineering and math high school. Board President Jackie Pendergrass noted that as board members spoke to individuals around the district about the opening, what they heard the most was â&#x20AC;&#x153;people want things we have going forward to take place without a hitch. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose that momentum.â&#x20AC;?

Several board members observed that Pierce has been leading many of these initiatives successfully. Board member Nancy Bernard called her â&#x20AC;&#x153;the workhorse behind a lot of the initiatives we are moving forward.â&#x20AC;? She said Pierce is very respected by those who work for her. Pierce began her career in LWSD teaching language arts and social studies at Inglewood Junior High School in 1992. After six years in the classroom, she served as a district instructional technology staff development specialist for one year before returning to Inglewood as assistant principal. She was promoted to principal after just one year. Pierce returned to the central office to serve in several instructional leadership positions before being named chief schools officer in July 2007. Pierce has served as deputy superintendent in instructional services since July 2010. In describing the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s process, member Doug Eglington noted the board had reviewed the qualifications of the superintendent, the guidance the community provided in the results of a survey and individually spoke to many in the district. The board held two lengthy interviews with Pierce. Pierce is a graduate of the University of Washington, with a bachelor of arts degree in English. She returned to the UW to earn her doctorate of education in educational leadership and policy studies.

DEAD LETTERS It’s no surprise that the Postal Service is in serious financial troble

W

hen a business is facing $2.1 billion in debt, it’s natural that it will make dramatic changes. The U.S. Postal Service is no exception. Thus, there should be little surprise that it plans to close or consolidate as many as 677 post offices throughout the country, with approximately 250 set for full closure. For the U.S. Postal Service, these are dire times – and they are unlikely to get better. The Associated Press reports that Postal Service lost $5.1 billion in the past year. In 2012, it’s facing a record $14.1 billion shortfall and possible bankruptcy. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. By 2015, the Postal Service must reduce its operating costs by $20 billion, according to David Williams, vice president, Network Operations. As it does this, expect to see changes. The Postal Service is proposing that the standard for delivering First-Class Mail will become 2-3 days for contiguous U.S. destinations. There’s also talk of eliminating Saturday delivery, but that’s not on the chopping block – yet. The problem confronting the Postal Service shouldn’t come as a surprise. More and more of us have turned to the Internet to keep in touch with one another and fewer and fewer of us are using the Postal Service to send First Class Mail. For the Postal Service, that’s a catastrophe. First Class Mail is the biggest money-maker for the Postal Service, but such revenue has fallen 25 percent over the past decade. More and more, mailboxes are filled with “junk mail.” The Postal Service also has committed self-inflicted wounds: high labor costs. Reports say that salaries and benefits make up about 80 percent of the Postal Service budget. Compare that with FedEx, which reportedly spends 43 percent of its budget on labor, and UPS, which spends 63 percent. Why are the Postal Service labor costs so high? Big salary increases and no-layoff clauses. And, let’s not forget the role of Congress in all of this. Though the Postal Service doesn’t get any public dollars, it still is subject to congressional whims. For example, there’s a Senate and House version of a bill dealing with Saturday delivery. Many people are betting that the two houses won’t come to an agreement, meaning that Postal Service problems are likely to continue. – Craig Groshart, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter

Poetry slam names a winner A total of 20 people participated at a recent poetry slam in Sammamish. Bhavya Chhabra, a 10th grader from Skyline High School, took first place. Bhavya describes the poem as follows: “Women have been deprived of education for so long as was illegal under the former Taliban regime, that it is a last priority today. This poem is not meant to be offensive, but meant to depict the real value of education and its role in our society.” The first two paragraphs are excerpted below.

The Addiction of Education BY BHAVYA CHHABRA Hey! HEY YOU, Come here; don’t be scared, if I cared, it’s only my minds place.

The euphoria of snapping these crusted bars and clanking chains, Gushing past crowded structures, dopamine surges in my brains, My eyes are painfully swollen, bloodshot red A gunshot wound sinks its teeth into the hot dirt.-BAM BAM BAM! IM ADDICTED. Come with me into Alighieri’s rings, That harbors Shangri-La’s golden springs, Oh Ponce De Leon, here it is. Columbus! All the world’s treasures you wished! The drug that we’ve been deprived of as a nation, We deserve the addiction of education. Bhavya Chhabra is a sophomore at Skyline High School

We all owe a big “thank you” to the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe. They never gave up on getting those two dams torn down, and today that dream is becoming a reality. For 100 years they have had to wait for their treaty rights to be restored and for the salmon to return. The salmon never gave up either. At a recent dam removal celebration, I saw 73 chinook swimming in the clear green water at the foot of the Elwha Dam, ready and waiting. “Economic engine,” “long-term economic growth” and “investment in the future” are some of the words Billy Frank folks have used to describe the benefits of the dam removal project. And they’re right. The Olympic Peninsula has struggled for years as its fishing and timber-based jobs have disappeared.

But removal of the Elwha River dams is changing that. Hope is replacing fear, jobs are being created and more will be coming in the long term. More than 3 million people visit Olympic National Park every year, and that number will only increase as the river is restored. There are many more Elwha dams out there. They might not look the same, and they might go by other names, like floodplain development, shoreline armoring and nonpoint pollution, but they are just as deadly to salmon. And like the Elwha dams, they’re just as effective at denying all of us healthy salmon runs, a healthy environment and a healthy economy. We all need to make sure that no more dams get in the salmon’s way. Billy Frank Jr. is chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission.

Issaquah home prices up 5%; Sammamish prices dip BY LINDA BALL ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

There was a slight bump in median sales price on residential properties in Issaquah last month, with prices up 5.24 percent from $495,000 a year ago to $520,944 last month. This is in sharp contrast to other parts of King County. The median price on the Eastside overall was down by 6.2 percent. In Sammamish the median price was down 1.90 percent, from $420,000 a year ago to $412,000 last month.

Pending sales — sales where contracts are agreed upon but have not yet closed — were down by 2.78 percent in Issaquah to 105, from 108 a year ago in November. Inventory was down 22.86 percent in Issaquah, with fewer single family homes and condos on the market. Last year there were a total of 468 active listings, compared to 361 this year. In Sammamish, inventory dropped 13.74 percent, from 844 listings a year ago to 728 last month. In Sammamish, pending sales were up 25.23 percent for single family homes with

139 mutually agreed contracts, compared to 111 a year ago. In Issaquah, single family sales were down by 12.5 percent, while Issaquah condos soared 40 percent with 28 pending sales compared to 20 a year ago, albeit at a 20.91 percent drop in median price from $165,000 to $130,500. “Condos have been hit the hardest of all our inventory in the last four years,” said Bob Richards with Windermere in Issaquah. “Sellers have reduced their prices so much that investors are buying them.” He said it’s mainly the $80,000 to $150,000 price range condos that investors are buying, letting them realize a positive cash flow on the property. Richards said there will continue to be less inventory and soft prices until the end of the year, but there will be some bargain purchasing over the next month. In Sammamish, the median price on condos actually rose 5.24 percent from $210,000 a year ago to $221,000, with 22 closed sales, up from 15 a year ago. Pending condo sales were up in Sammamish, from 28 a year ago to 37 last month.

Andrew Weiffenbach, a broker with Re/ Max Exemplary in Sammamish, said sellers are behaving seasonally, taking their homes off the market for winter, while buyers are not pulling back. Continued low interest rates, pent-up demand and expanding families are keeping buyers on the hunt. Weiffenbach’s advice: List now. “I think we lost a lot of confidence in the spring, then in the summer buyers held off and as summer drew to fall, buyers started to settle down and come out,” Weiffenbach said. He said the drop in confidence in the spring was due to the crisis in Europe, but now buyers are getting used to the news. Weiffenbach estimated that there is about 4.6 months of inventory left in Sammamish, and he expects inventory to drop off again in the next month. However, he said buyers’ unseasonably high performance continues.

REPORTER Q/A | Newly elected Issaquah School Board member Anne Moore BY CELESTE GRACEY CGRACEY@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Q A

Why did you run for the school board?

Anne Moore: For a long time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a focus on public education here in Issaquah, working with the PTA and school district committees. It seems like a natural next place to go to have an impact for even more kids and improve education here. It allows me as a parent to make sure that that focus stays on the kids.

Q

What is the biggest issue facing Issaquahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School Board this year? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your approach going to be?

A

The biggest issue is the budget cut. The idea coming from the governor to cut four days from our school, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to support that. Our job with the school district is keep providing a high quality education to our kids in spite of all the cuts that are happening, and to continue to see

what we can do out of the classroom. There are limits to what can be cut. Teachers are the essence of our school. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I have an answer yet. I have a lot to learn on how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do this.

Q

The governor proposed reducing the school year by four days. Should the district accept fewer school days or should it cut elsewhere?

A

I prefer we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut the school days. It will depend on how she (the governor) puts it into law. As a part of the law, if it limits schools to 176 days, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a choice. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the money, then we have choices in how we can implement that.

What issues do you see teachers facing today? How can the district help?

A

I would wish we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to, but that may be our reality. Our kids and teachers need good tools in their classroom.

district. We have aging buildings that need to be taken care of. They are expensive to maintain, so we can save money from our operations budget. Right now we also have a favorable climate for construction. We found that for IHS and were able

Another capital issue is being discussed to improve several schools, including Liberty High School. Do you support a bond? I was on the bond committee that created the package that went to the superintendent. I believe these are all projects that we need to do to maintain the facilities of our school

I know with the budget that one of the issues that has the teachers concerned is class size. And I know the district has done what it can to keep the classroom small. There is a limit to how far that can go. For teachers, a new thing that is coming from the state that sounds great is the principal and teacher evaluation pilot. It creates a four-tier evaluation system for teachers and it has new rubrics for how teachers are evaluated. Right now the district is in the early stages of setting that up. Right now we have

an evaluation system that has been around for a really long time; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very out of date.

Q

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a stay-at-home mom. What do you think a parents role should be in their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education?

A

I think parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roles are key in a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a strong supporter in what they do. It conveys to them not only the importance of education but also provides the support and the needed resources to get their job done. Kids are in training from the very beginning. They need to know homework is something important, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we need to do first.

Q

As a board member, what issue or subject do you plan to focus on the most in these next four years?

A

One of the things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to keep a focus on is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), making sure our kids have all the opportunities they need to go into the science field. I have a science background. All kids should have the opportunity to go into math and the sciences and not have the door shut.

For the first time IHS has a stage with a fly system, allowing it to use various backdrops. A sheer backdrop is used in one scene to draw in the audience.

Youth theater presents ‘Free to Be … You and Me’

559133

Issaquah has always had the professional productions of Village Theatre, but it’s been a while since the city has seen a true community-style theater. Issaquah High School’s new 600-person theater fills a void for $15 tickets for shows that celebrate the students as much as the arts. The school christened its stage last weekend with the opening of Fiddler on the Roof, a big performance for a giant stage, which gives plenty of foot room for the dancers. The new space comes with a sense of respect for the performers, who no longer have to project over the sound of soda machines. The old space, carved out of the student commons, had people drifting in and out, distracting the audience. “It has provided that professional atmosphere that was completely unattainable in our previous space,” said Holly Whiting, the IHS drama director. For the first time members of the community, who had no relation to the students, came in for a show, she said. “I’m hopeful

Youth Theatre Northwest will put kid power on the stage as it presents “Free to Be … You and Me” through Dec. 18. The play, created by Marlo Thomas and Friends, uses music and humor to present life-enhancing themes such as friendship and self-confidence to a new generation of kids. The production is best for ages 3+. The cast of 15 actors are from Bellevue, Issaquah, Newcastle, Mercer Island, Seattle and Redmond. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased by calling the 206- 232-4145, ext. 109, or online by visiting www. youththeatre.org. More information, including times and dates of the performance, is available online. The theater is located at 8805 S.E. 40th St., Mercer Island.


ROWLEY CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

When Lynch first heard about the Rowley Agreement, she thought the CIP would guide it, but now she’s afraid the opposite could happen. “What’s with the rush,” she said. “He’s pushing, because he’s afraid of what’s coming out with the codes.” Parts of Rowley’s plan, written by consultants, have already been integrated into the CIP. The CIP task force envisioned more low-income housing, so people could afford to work and live in the city. It also had hoped to do more for the environment by using complicated Transfer of Development Rights, she said. TDRs allow builders to transfer development rights from one piece of property to another as a way to in-

crease density. The land without development rights are often then preserved.The Rowley plan doesn’t use TDRs. The costs of TDRs are prohibitive and requiring them would kill any plans Rowley Properties has to build structured parking, said Kari Magill, who is transitioning into running the company for her father, Skip. Skip added that TDRs could kill the Rowley’s plans altogether. The Rowley plan does have some provisions for lowincome housing. The developer would either need to build 100 units of workforce housing or lease land to someone who will by time it builds 2.5 million square feet.

THE ENVIRONMENT When his father purchased land on the valley floor, Skip remembers Tibbetts Creek was deep and loaded

This map shows Rowley Properties land, Hyla Crossing and Rowley Center, which makes up the Rowley Redevelopment Agreement. The red outline shows most of the land included in the Central Area Plan. Contributed with fish. Over the years, he watched buildup from coal mine tailings raise the creek, turning the waterway into little more than a drainage ditch. The problem climaxed when the river flooded in 1990, covering the westen half of the valley floor in water. Rowley decided it was time to fix the creek. For 11 years he worked with several agencies to get more money to expand the I-90 culvert and restore the creek. Today, Tibbetts Creek has taken shape again; deer have returned. However, Rowley’s development and a road still butt up against the creek. And, Marts says, the science is clear that Tibbetts needs a 100-foot buffer to be healthy again. Complicating any effort to create the buffer is a major sewage line that runs along the east side of Tibbetts. In most parts, Rowley’s property line runs along the west side of the creek. Moving the sewage line is near impossible, and moving Tibbetts would mean pushing the creek onto someone-else’s land. “The Rowleys inherited a tough situation,” Marts said. They can’t be forced to buy the land across the creek anymore than the landowners can be forced to sell it. The debate, then, is what provisions can Rowley Properties make if they’re unable to purchase the Mull property and move the creek. Environmentalists also challenge plans to put in a storm drain that would flow into Lake Sammamish. The pipe would have filters to prevent silt from making it to the lake, but shoreline property owners have seen too many botched stormwater programs to trust the plan. Environmentalists want a more natural approach, using the creek to drain the water and the wetlands to help filter out silt and pollutants. Whether the creek gets a buffer or Issaquah gets a more vibrant community doesn’t just hinge on the plan, but on whether the Rowley family can afford to develop at all. “We don’t have to do anything,” Rowley said, mentioning his many tenants. “That’s the point people are missing.” Issaquah Reporter Staff Writer Celeste Gracey can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.

BEST OF THE BEST Skyline dominates Skyview, 38-7, en route to sixth state title BY KEVIN ENDEJAN KENDEJAN@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

The belief never left Skyline. Not after a tough loss to Bellevue. Not after surrendering 400 rushing yards seven touchdowns to one player in their loss to Lake Oswego. Not after losing to Plateau rival Eastlake for the first time in school history. “We got into the playoffs with a 6-3 record, it wasn’t pretty, but we still knew we were the best team in the state,” junior

quarterback Max Browne said. “We knew we could get there.” The Spartans got “there” Saturday night, soundly defeating Skyview of Vancouver 38-7 for the the program’s fourth state title in the last five years and sixth overall championship. Browne, who quarterbacked to Spartans to last year’s runner-up spot, came through big in his second go-around at the Tacoma Dome. The junior completed 15 of 22 passes for 222 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

“Everything I dreamed of, ever since I watched my brother (Mitch) win the state title ... it’s a dream come true,” Browne said. While the offense was key to jumping out to a 17-0 halftime lead, it was the defense that set the tone. Facing a team who averaged 280 pounds across the offensive and defensive lines, the much smaller Spartans controlled the flow of the game early. The key? “Coming out and playing our game

with a different mentality, we wanted to shut them out,” said junior linebacker Peyton Pelluer. “It was the best game we could play at the right time and worked out great.” Skyline held Skyview to 97 total yards in the first half, and star running back Parker Henry to just 24 yards on nine carries. He ended with just 34 yards. “We knew they were big up front,” said 5-foot-11, 240 pound senior lineman Austin Owen. “We just had to grasp that fact ... we just got it done up front.”

His helmet came off after making a big hit on Skyview running back Parker Henry. Wide receiver Mason Gregory, right, hauls in a 35-yard pass fora touchdown from Max Browne. CHAD COLEMAN, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter

Skyline scored on the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening drive on Sean McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24-yard field goal. The Spartans added to their lead on the first play of the second quarter, via Damian Greeneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25-yard scamper up the middle. Browne connected with Mason Gregory later in the quarter on a perfectly timed 35-yard bomb, helping Skyline to a 17-0 halftime advantage. Skyview didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lay down. The Storm appeared to find a rhythm with 5:44 left in the third quarter when

quarterback Kieran McDonagh found Reiley Henderson for a 32-yard TD. Three plays after kicking the ball back to Skyline, Skyview intercepted Browne and marched deep into Spartan territory. Greene ended the threat, picking off McDonagh at the Spartansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 20. Skyline answered with a uncharacteristic drive that broke the will of the Storm. On a 12 plays, the pass-heavy Spartans rushed the ball 11 times, eating up 6 minutes and 34 seconds of clock. Jack Valencia capped the drive with an 11-yard TD and a 24-7

lead with 4:49 to go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That drive ... was just unbelievable,â&#x20AC;? Skyline head coach Mat Taylor said. Skyline converted two more interceptions into touchdowns late in the fourth quarter. Browne hit Trevor Barney for a 34-yard TD after Matt Sinatroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pick of McDonagh. Valencia then returned an interception 73 yards for a TD with under a minute to go. Skyline finished its season with an 11-3 record, winning its final six games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got through it together as a broth-

erhood,â&#x20AC;? Pelluer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came together after the Eastlake loss and we knew we needed to figure something out. As you can tell, we did.â&#x20AC;? The adversity made the win that much sweeter for Taylor, who has now coached the Spartans to three titles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the best itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever been,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where we started ... these kids never doubted anything. They knew with hard work it would pay off and after the Eastlake game, the kids just had a belief, you could just see it in their eyes.â&#x20AC;?

He is a hard-nose kid that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to mix it up inside.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the senior leadership, the Eagles have a group of underclassmen who will play key roles.

Skyline presents tall challenge this season BY KEVIN ENDEJAN KENDEJAN@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Nothing presents a more difficult matchup in high school basketball than height â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the Skyline boys basketball team has plenty of it in 2011-2012.

EC boys poised for successful season ers. At 6-foot-7, Schreiber averaged 18 points and close to 10 rebounds per game as a junior. Senior guards Matt Callans and Chevy Walker, along with junior guard Trey Reynolds, also return. There are also a group of newcomers, including Austin Porcello â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a transfer point guard who followed Liley from Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Other varsity newcomers include junior guard Austin Soukup, senior forward Joey McKay, freshman guard Mandrell Worthy and 6-7 freshman Blake Maimone. Liley had a ton of praise for his returners and newcomers, noting that Soukup could become one of the top shooters in the Metro and Worthy will be one of the best freshmen in the league. As for where the team will end up after last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 9-14 season, Liley has high hopes. The Crusaders are already off to a 3-0 start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My expectations are always going to be unreasonable,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My players are adjusting to that. This team will be a playoff team this season. We will adjust our goals after we qualify for post-season play.â&#x20AC;?

Bill Liley is used to success. And the former Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High School boys basketball coach has no plans change his winning ways as the at Eastside Catholic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My staff and I did not come to Eastside to fail,â&#x20AC;? Liley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had great success at Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. We are used to winning, going to state every year and bringing home a trophy. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan to ever get used to anything less than that.â&#x20AC;? Over the last four years at Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Liley had a 75-35 record and sent the Knights to the class A state tournament four times. He placed three times finishing second, fifth and sixth. The Crusadersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new coach is pleased with the pool of talent he has, and the potential for immediate success in the Metro League. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eastside fans can expect a hard working team who will play together, defend and compete every game,â&#x20AC;? Liley said. Senior Joey Schreiber leads a group of solid return-

guard position. Will Parker, in his fourth year on varsity, leads a group of talented ball handlers. The 5-foot-11 senior averaged 9.5 points, 4.4 assists and 2 steals per game last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel Parker is one of the top point guards in Washington and one of the best competitors Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever coached,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. Sophomore Jonah Eastern is a similar build to Parker and brings a lot of the same elements to the floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both can really shoot it when in rhythm and both can get after it defensively,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. Hunter Cikatz is a 6-3 sophomore guard also expected to make an impact on defense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something the Spartans continue to pride themselves on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been one of the top defensive teams in the state these past two seasons and recognize itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our means to success,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel this team has the potential to be the best defensive team weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had during my tenure here at Skyline.â&#x20AC;? The Spartans are coming off a 14-10 season that ended with a KingCo 4A tournament loss to Newport. As for expectations this season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something Skyline is concerned with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know who we are and what we are capable of and that will be our focus, not what others think or expect,â&#x20AC;? Davis said.

Overlake Hospital Medical Center has acquired Issaquah Medical Group, now named Overlake Medical Clinics Gilman. As part of the acquisition, Overlake has added two primary physicians and an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) to its staff. The new clinic is located at 450 NW Gilman Blvd., Suite 201 in Issaquah. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of our main goals at Overlake is to provide our patients with the most convenient and cost-effective medical care possible,â&#x20AC;? said Craig Hendrickson, Overlakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CEO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The addition of Overlake Medical Clinics Gilman to our network means that we now have seven medical clinics throughout the Eastside, with two more opening in Redmond in 2012.â&#x20AC;? The primary focus of the network of Overlake Medical Clinics is to promote health and wellness. Each clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and is designed to provide patients with short wait times and same-day appointments. Joining the Overlake staff in Issaquah will be Elizabeth Lehmann-Taylor, MD, John Henn, DO, and Keya Chisholm, ARNP. Lehmann-Taylor received her medical degree from the University of Washington and has served the Issaquah community since 1974.

Henn studied at Drake University and later graduated from Des Moines University Medical School in 1969. He is certified in Family Practice and spent 30 years serving the Kent community before moving to Issaquah. Chisholm also graduated from the University of Washington, but received her Master of Science in Nursing from Pacific Lutheran University. Overlake operates six other primary care clinics throughout the Eastside, including one on the hospital campus. The other primary care clinics are located in downtown Bellevue, Kirkland and Issaquah. There are also senior health centers in Bellevue and Mercer Island. Two more openings are planned for Redmond in January of 2012, including an adult family medicine clinic at Redmond Town Center and an Urgent Care Clinic on Redmond Way. Those will take the Overlake Medical Clinics network to nine altogether. Overlake Hospital Medical Center is a nonprofit, nontax-supported regional medical center. The hospital is licensed for 349 beds and was the first Level III trauma service on the Eastside. More information is available at www.overlakehospital. org.

Electric-car charging stations added to City Hall If you own a Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt or Tesla Roadster, you may be pulling over at Sammamish City Hall before long. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because two new electric vehicle charging stations are now located in the parking lot on the east side of city offices. Both will be open for business following a ceremonial ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. Dec. 16. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this is the wave of the future, we want to make sure Sammamish is swept along,â&#x20AC;? said Sammamish Mayor Don Gerend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really happy to be part of a growing network of public charging stations.â&#x20AC;? The two stations were manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, a company working with the Department of Energy to build a network of â&#x20AC;&#x153;charge pointsâ&#x20AC;? throughout the country. The city also installed two charging stations in the underground parking garage at City Hall to power future electrical vehicles in the city fleet. Thanks to funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the city paid for installation costs only, which came to $23,000. The stations themselves were free

to the city. Tom Saxton, a Sammamish resident on the board of Plug-in America, is pleased by the progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad my city is helping to lead the way on charging station facilities,â&#x20AC;? Saxton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new stations should get tremendous use as the number of electric vehicles increases over time. I think this is good for our country and good for our city.â&#x20AC;? When the city formulated its â&#x20AC;&#x153;sustainabilityâ&#x20AC;? strategy, it drew on the input of residents. These new charging stations fit with the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expressed desire to make energy conservation a top priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to get there overnight,â&#x20AC;? Gerend said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to move forward, experiment, learn from our experiences and then move forward some more. This is a great early step in pursuit of sustainability here in Sammamish.â&#x20AC;? To fully charge a Nissan Leaf from empty to full uses about $2.50 of electricity, enough to drive 80 to 100 miles. However, most drivers are expected to simply â&#x20AC;&#x153;top off â&#x20AC;? at

Sammamish Boys and Girls Club thriving with donations The newly opened Sammamish EX3 Teen and Recreation Center has received more than $100,000 in donations from four

Clubs, has pledged $50,000 to support the Teen Center. “I am proud to support such an amazing facility and organization,” Donahou said. “It is going to be an incredible asset.” The organization also received $35,000 from the Joshua P. Williams Foundation. “We are so grateful for their continuing support,” said Redmond/Sammamish Boys & Girls Club executive director Jane Ronngren. Previously Ronngren said the organization needs to raise $3.5 million for a gymnasium, offices and restrooms at the Sammamish Boys & Girls Club. The Teen Center also received a $15,000 grant from the Comcast Foundation and $1,500 from the Inglewood Jr. High PTSA. “The Eastlake PTSA also contributed $3,000, and the Samantha Smith PTSA donated $3,000,” Ronngren said. “We are so appreciative of these recent gifts from diverse sources, but we still have a lot of

work to do.” While membership and program fees help support operations, fundraising is said necessary to keep rates affordable. “Every Boys & Girls Club in King County relies on fundraising to provide high-quality, affordable programs, and we are excited to be engaging the individuals, associations, and businesses in our community,” said Jeremy Peck, Resource Development Manager. “We’ve received some great support, but need to continue our outreach, especially to achieve our goals to build the gymnasium.” The new teen center is open after school until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday for youth and teens in grades 6-12.

Pets for adoption ‘Rescue’ your next best friend Danielle is a 2-month-old Shepherd mix that loves to tumble and play. Danielle is easily motivated by yummy treats and would excel quickly in our six-week obedience training courses included in her adoption. Tonka is a silly 2-month-old kitten that likes to explore the world around him and settle into your lap for some snuggle time at the end of a fun-filled day. Both are at the Seattle Humane Society in Bellevue, located at the intersection of I-405 and I-90. It is open seven days a week from noon to 6 p.m. For directions call 425-641-0080. Note: The Seattle Humane Society is waiving adoption fees on all cats 1 year and older and all small animals (bunnies, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats) through December.
