Kirklanders take freezing plunge into Lake Washington to celebrate New Years’ Day BY CARRIE WOOD cwood@kirklandreporter.com

The King may have been the only one who did not get his hair wet on Sunday afternoon. Dressed as Elvis Presley with a pair of swim trunks over his white costume, Kirkland resident Gordan Buck

plunged into the 45-degree water of Lake Washington at Marina Park on Sunday. “Notice I didn’t get my hair wet,” said Buck after he re-emerged dripping from the water, smoothing his hand over his dry black hairdo. More than 100 swimmers took the daring plunge into

the chilly lake on Sunday afternoon to ring in the New Year as part of Kirkland’s 10th annual unofficial 2012 Polar Bear Plunge at Marina Park. Many wore silly hats and costumes, including Kirkland resident Lisa Hilderbrand who said the water was actually pretty warm,

given her long-sleeved pirate garb. The City of Kirkland sponsored the annual event for several years until budget cutbacks in 2009. However, many in Kirkland still flock to the Lake Washington shores every year to unofficially carry out the tradition.

A vehicular homicide under disregard for the safety of others would increase from 15-20 months to 2127 months in prison. For drunk drivers convicted of vehicular assault, the penalty would go from 3-9 months to 6-12 months. Washington State Sen. David Frockt is also planning to introduce a bill aim-

ing to increase the sentence ranges in drunken driving cases. “Given the incredible number of public awareness campaigns after all these years on TV and radio, people know, or should know, how reckless a decision it is to drink and drive,” said Frockt. Frockt said that 13 co-sponsors have already signed on to support such a bill. Rep. Roger Goodman

(D-Kirkland) also plans to submit a new bill during the next legislative session that would require anyone convicted of killing a parent while driving impaired to pay child support to the family of the victim. Goodman is also planning to submit a bill that would increase the penalties for impaired drivers if kids are in the car during a DUI crash. Sadly, Lacey was not alone this year in Kirkland.

OPINION

[4] January 6, 2012

● QUOTE OF NOTE:

“My children are suffering. They spent the holidays wishing for the one gift they couldn’t have and that was to have the most wonderful father back in our lives,“ said Nabila Lacey of her husband, Steve, who was killed by a drunk driver.

Ban cellphone, emailing, texting while driving

Question of the week:

?

“Are you satisfied with the Kirkland Council’s vote for mayor and deputy mayor?”

Vote online: www.kirklandreporter.com

Last week’s poll results: “Are you hopeful for the local economy in 2012?” Yes: 68% No: 31%

he National Transportation Safety Board has taken a tough, but necessary, stand on texting, emailing or chatting while driving a vehicle. The board wants it outlawed. Good. The unanimous recommendation from the five-member board would apply even to hands-free devices, a much stricter rule than any current state law. Again, good. Despite the popularity of such devices, there’s no way a person can give full concentration to driving and still pay attention to a making a telephone call, emailing or sending a text. As NTSB chairwoman Deborah Hersman rightly noted, “No email, no text, no update, no call is worth a human life.” And people have died while trying to do both. One deadly crash in Missouri involved a 19-year-old teen driving a pickup who sent or received 11 text messages within 11 minutes. The pickup was traveling at 55 mph when it plowed into the back of a tractor truck that had slowed for highway construction. The pickup was then rear-ended by a school bus, and a second school bus rammed into the back of the first bus. The pickup driver and a 15-year-old student on one of the buses were killed. Thirty-eight other people were injured. Our state is one of 35 and the District of Columbia that bans

texting while driving, and, along with eight other states and Washington, D.C., that ban hand-held cellphone use. That seems like a step in the right direction, but you only have to look around at our streets to see driver after driver flaunting the law. And most, if not all of them, are clearly paying more attention to their cellphone calls and text messages than they are to their driving. And, yes, the police do write tickets – lots of them – for these offenses – but it’s clear that it isn’t stopping this

dangerous practice. Let’s stop kidding ourselves: It is inconceivable to believe that all – or even most – of those cellphone calls and text messages are in response to an emergency. In reality, people doing them are putting their personal need to chat and text above any concern for public safety. The National Transportation Safety Board is right. Ban all use of texting, emailing or chatting while driving. We can live without doing those activities. It’s now apparent that we can die while doing them.

Kirkland Council should exercise commonsense When I read about the plans by the Kirkland City Council to purchase the Eastside Rail Corridor for use as a bicycle/walking path, I had two thoughts. My first thought was similar to that expressed by several letterwriters praising the city for having the foresight to preserve this right-of-way for the benefit of Kirkland citizens and Eastside King County residents. My second thought was somewhat along the lines expressed by Mr. Bob Style in his letter published in the Dec. 30 issue of the Reporter. Given the current economic uncertainty affecting the nation’s cities and its citizens, I would hope that the council would go beyond the “due diligence” outlined in the Dec. 5 memorandum to Kurt Triplett and presented at the Dec. 12 council meeting, and prioritize the expenditure of the estimated $5 million acquisition cost along with the many vital services the city is obligated to perform within a finite budget (one need only take a leisurely drive through the city to appreciate the need for corrective action to maintain and/or repair its deteriorating road surfaces). Ironically, the Dec. 30 issue of the

Wall Street Journal included an article describing the financial dilemma currently facing the City of University Place as a consequence of its failure to “live within its means,” a concept that too many governmental entities seem unable to grasp. I encourage all Kirkland citizens to read the Dec. 5 memorandum report, with particular attention to the speculative nature of the funding sources. Let’s hope that our city fathers exercise more commonsense when prioritizing this expenditure than the example set by the “geniuses” in our federal and state legislatures.

How to curb junkmail and spam In my travels in the course of business I meet with many folks who are bedeviled almost to distraction by the importunities of telemarketing, spam and junkmail showing up in their telephones, email inboxes and U.S. mailboxes. So, therefore, I am happy to write that we in our little house in Kirkland are very blissfully ignorant of any such intrusions and if you wish to be thus blissful as well it’s very easy to do so. But please, any gentle readers active in the above industries may wish to skip this letter and go on to read the

classified ads or the police blotter instead as this may be stressful. You could try putting on a little of your favorite soft music if it helps to get through this, though. Now first, open a browser and Google the direct marketing association and visit their website online, which is our consumers’ window into the direct marketing world and quickly and easily build a filter of your names and addresses on the Direct Memory Access system to block the data miners of the public record from seeing you wherever you may appear in the public record at any level of government in the country, even including the public record of all 50 states and the territories. Why? Because the vital record and public record is sold by the public entities to the direct marketing industry all the time for money. However, please be charitable to the King County recorder as they do not upload the scanned images of mortgage borrowers’ legal instruments onto the KC recorder’s website. That means that web surfers out there looking for signatures, loan amounts and personal addresses can’t see anything but a tile reading, “image not viewable.” So, thank you KC recorders’ office, it’s much appreciated by all! Second, there is a spam blocker I found called mailwasher.com that has

hosed the spam in my oldest email account from dozens a day to several at most and I’m a total IT klutz, but it works blissfully for me. I’m told it sits on your computer and pings the spammers back or something that your IP address doesn’t exist so don’t even try yours anymore. Three, visit all three credit bureaus’ home pages, Transunion.com, Equifax.com and Experian.com. Open a browser and Google the three credit bureaus and visit their home pages. Why? Because every single time you have ever been an applicant for credit you sign an authorization to release your private information, which your creditor sends off to the credit bureaus in order to get a look at your credit. Never opted out with the credit bureaus? Go to their websites’ search windows and type in “privacy.” Do it now and prevent the data miners from buying the guts of your credit report without your even knowing that it’s happening and stop what I’m told are called “soft hits” dinging down your credit scores as the credit bureaus sell your report to the data miners. More bliss!

s we begin this new column about religious life and activities in Kirkland we look back to June 8, 1987 when seven Kirkland churches gathered to worship together and to sign a Covenant Agreement to form an ecumenical parish of support and mutual recognition.

The parish has built Habitat houses, offered joint VBS programs, and shared building space with each other. Worship services include the Good Friday Walk of the Cross through downtown Kirkland, Thanksgiving Eve, and Pulpit Exchanges. Clergy and staff meet monthly for lunch, conversation and prayer. And, most recently, we joined in the 9/11 commemoration service held at the Kirkland Performance

Center on the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks. Interestingly, all of this activity and mutual recognition began with a simple lunch conversation initiated by the priest from Holy Family Catholic Church. Father Jim Dalton invited the clergy from many Kirkland churches to have lunch together in January 1984. A number of clergy gathered for that first meeting and had such a good time they continued the next month with more people in attendance. Staff members joined in and soon the church memberships became aware of the connections being made between the congregations. There seemed to be a pent-up desire on the part

Perks and pitfalls of being an only child the poolside and reading. While I have grown out of my intimidation of meeting new people on trips, when I was younger, I used to imagine I had a sibling to play with. I didn’t always have fun, but the brother in my head did. Yes, vacationing with your parents as an only child has its faults, but I also feel that it increased the bond I have with my parents. Sure, my vacation could be more exciting if another kid came, but in a way, it’s nice to just spend time with my family; an opportunity I don’t always get to indulge in back home. Reflecting on the possibility that this could be my last vacation with my parents for some time saddens me, yet even that and the rain isn’t enough to dampen my Hawaiian afternoon. Mahalo.

sense of mutual recognition and understanding not only between people of differing Christian communities but between congregations of various religions. It all starts as we get to know each other personally and we discover we have so much more in common with each other than we have difference. We look forward to sharing ideas, activities, and opportunities for service in future editions of the Faith Forum.

that just us three take before my departure to college. Mixed feelings stir up within me as I process that thought. As an only child, I am well accustomed to traveling with just my parents, and the spoils that comes with it (souvenirs), though I also wish I could share the experiences with others, preferably my own age. One of the perks, and I use that term loosely, of being an only child on vacation is that feeling of loneliness that tags along to your vacation as well. Walking into the pool area for the first time conjures up that cliché déjà vu moment of being the new kid at school again, scanning the entire area for potential new friends. Due to my lacking in the sibling department, it is essential I make temporary acquaintances during my trip to compensate my feelings of isolation. I mean, I could hang with my parents, but they enjoy lounging around

t is a surreal experience to wake up in Hawaii as a Washingtonian. Unlike the damp, dreary mornings that routinely welcome my rousing back home, the island of Maui greets me with a sun-kissed earth and rolling blue waves. This lush paradise will always serve as a reminder of how good some people have it, and as days of my stay diminish into the sunset, I must instead settle for the rain that I can never get used to eagerly awaiting me in Kirkland. Even on vacation, the curse of precipitation seems to be unavoidable, and I find myself habitually peering up at the sky for that 30-percent chance as I lounge in my pool chair. Yet, preoccupying myself with rain that may or may not come is unprofitable, especially when I should be reflecting on how fortunate I am to even be on vacation. I must acknowledge my loving parents who brought me with them to this island getaway. The Shucklin family is composed of just three, and it is odd to think that this might be the last vacation

of many church members to start talking with people of different backgrounds. “Let’s seek out what we have in common rather than what divides us,” was a common refrain. The desire to seek connections with people of various backgrounds continues today; a desire never more evident than at the KPC on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. GKEP joined many other churches and faith communities as we came together with respect, good will and civility. Muslim, Jewish, and Christian prayers were offered. We shared our grief and we talked with hope about the future. Maybe the next 25 years will include a new

What is it with New Year’s resolutions that make them so prone to failure, it’s almost ludicrous to think of making another one? You know how it goes: This year, it will be different! I will stick to my plans and see them through, no matter

resolution last year to read one book a month. I started the year with “People Are Idiots and I Can Prove Itâ€? by Larry Winget. One tip I took out of that book was, touch a piece of paper only once. What a great line. If we are trying to be more organized and save time in our businesses this seems key. Deal with things as they come. Example: You get the mail. You flip through it looking for checks and then put the rest on the desk. Later you look for a proposal on your desk so you flip through the mail and move it to the other side of the desk. Then you clean your desk so you move the mail to the cabinet. Later you clean the office so you toss the junk mail and put the rest in the in-box. And so on and so on ‌ The time spent moving the mail around could have been spent just opening the mail and dealing with each item. Not only do you waste time moving mail around, you also carry in the back of your mind another thing you still have to deal with. I also read “The Success Principlesâ€? by Jack Canfield. This book is filled with many valuable pieces of information. Jack states, “The circumstances you complain about are, by their very nature, situations you can change — but you have chose not to.â€? He continues, “Making a change might take effort, money and time. It might be uncomfortable, difficult, or confusing. And so, to avoid risking any of these uncomfortable feelings and experiences, you stay put and complain about it.â€? Getting organized might take effort, money and time. All things we feel we don’t have enough of as business owners. Who has time? Who has money? Who thinks they have more effort to give? We are exhausted. But maybe getting organized will free us

in ways that will give us more time, effort and money. I am finishing the year with “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People� by Stephen R. Covey. Covey quotes Aristotle: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit.� Basically, Covey is teaching us that everything we do is habit. We can create habits and we can break them. But it takes a great deal of strength and awareness to change those habits. Awareness is key. Once we start to see, be aware of our bad habits we can begin to change them, break them. As we move the mail stack around the office we need to pay attention to that. Break that habit. Deal with the mail and then on to more important things. As you set your New Year’s resolutions this year, aim high. Happy New Year Kirkland!

Kirkland’s First District becomes more conservative as line is redrawn, includes parts of Snohomish, Skagit counties mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

Members of the Washington State Redistricting Commission approved a plan to reconfigure the nine existing congressional districts in order to squeeze in a 10th District for Washington State. But that plan will have a huge impact on Kirkland voters and their representation in Washington D.C. over the next

decade. The 2010 federal Census gave Washington State a 10th congressional district, which will be primarily located around Olympia and Puyallup. But the new congressional map shifts with whom Kirklanders share their elected representative from the First District. Under the old congressional districts, Kirkland residents also voted in the First District, but

with more liberal and densely populated areas to the west, such as Lynnwood, Edmonds and major areas of Kitsap County, like Bainbridge Island. But while the new map keeps Kirkland in the First District, whom Kirklanders vote with will change significantly. The new First District goes north through less populated and traditionally more conservative areas and will include Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom counties, all the way up to the Canadian border. The new district does not cross west over the I-5 corridor. Current First District Congressman Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) has announced that he will run for Washington State Governor in 2012 against Attorney General Rob

Fire reserve program transitions as Station 24 closes

McKenna, making for an immediate impact on the First District seat. The commission was comprised of four members, two republicans and two democrats, including former Washington State Sen. Slade Gorton, former Seattle Deputy Mayor Tim Ceis, Dean Foster, a former chief of staff to Gov. Booth Gardner, and former Washington State Rep. Tom Huff. The commission met for months and it came down to the wire Saturday night for an agreement at 10:35 p.m. The commission had to come to a consensus prior to 11:59 p.m. on Saturday. If the commission was not able to agree on the new districts, the issue would have gone to the Washington State Supreme Court.

Kirkland’s Fire Reserve Program, administered through the Fire Department, has long been supported by two dozen dedicated volunteers who have provided emergency medical aid support and non-emergency support at fire scenes. Reserves responded from the Finn Hill Fire Station 24 in tandem with the professional firefighters. Beginning Jan. 1, the valuable role of reserves supporting the community has changed through the creation of a Fire Corps Program. With their changing role, reserves will no longer be housed at the Hill Fire Station, which will house backup equipment. The Fire Corps volunteers will assist with community education about fire and injury prevention and emergency preparedness. They will also be trained to assist the community during a disaster.

is a program identified under the guidelines of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Citizen Corps program. To learn more about joining the Kirkland Fire Corps program, contact Captain Bill Hoover, Kirkland Fire Department, at 425-5873727 or bhoover@kirklandwa.gov. The future use of Fire Station 24 has not been determined at this time. Citizens who typically visit the station for blood pressure checks can receive them at the Holmes Point Fire Station 25, located at 12033 76th Place N.E. As part of the department’s continued efforts to improve service to the community, the city recently initiated a process to conduct site identification and evaluation for a new fire station in Finn Hill. Station 24 will be considered in that study. To keep the community informed and to gather public input on the new fire station location, a series of workshops will be held. The first workshop is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 at Finn Hill Junior High School, 8040 NE 132nd Street, Kirkland. For more information about the proposed new fire station, visit www.kirklandwa.gov/finnhillstation.

your child is that they must never go with anyone, stranger or not, without mom and dad knowing who they are with. This takes out defining “stranger� as an issue while creating a concrete rule that young children can understand. Tell your child that if someone is asking them to go with them, they must always tell their parents or caretaker first. If a person tries to get them to go without telling, that’s when they need to get away from that person (it’s okay to bite, scream and kick if someone grabs you that you don’t know and to tell their parent

he word stranger is hard to define to very young children, so begin with non-threatening dialogue about who is a stranger and who is not. “The lady in the store was nice, but we didn’t know her so she was a stranger.� “Those people are good friends of mom and dad’s from out of town, and so they are strangers to you, but mom and dad know them so they’re okay.� We don’t want to destroy a child’s trust in the world as a relatively safe place by scaring them at too early an age. The best thing to teach

situation. Keeping your eye on them and staying close are the best safety rules. As children get older, “stranger� becomes an understood concept. The child becomes more emotionally resilient and is able to discern situations better. Then you can gradually begin to give the more scary news about strangers and why children need to be careful.

enior citizens are often a target of fraud. The reasons are numerous and I’ve written about them in the past. One common scam these days is the “Grandparent Scam.” Typically, the grandparent receives an unsolicited phone call from someone claiming to be law enforcement, normally from Mexico or Canada. The caller tells the grandparent their grandchild is being held for some sort of infraction and the child will be released simply by wiring funds. The concerned grandparent, wanting to help their grandchild, wires the funds to the fraudster. This seems like a farfetched story, but it is important to understand that the callers are extremely good. They will use what information they have and ask generic questions to make it

High school basketball teams play in preseason tourneys Rebel boys finish sixth Playing in the 41st annual Bellevue College Holiday High School tournament, the Juanita boys finished sixth overall. The three-day event ended with the Rebels playing in the fourth/sixth place game against South Kitsap, which the Rebels lost 47-38. Juanita led the game early on, holding a one point lead at the end of the first, followed by an extension of the lead to a 19-16 score going into halftime. But after the break South Kitsap surged, scoring 12 points to Juanita’s nine in the third and 19 to 10 in the fourth. Ryan Reid had the high with 11 points, while Ty Eng posted nine, Trevor Andrews had seven, Devan Jackson added six, Avery Britton had two and Sean Brennan had one. In their first game, the Rebels lost Wednesday afternoon to a 9-1 Nathan Hale team. The final score was 65-54. In the opening quarter, the Rebels were down 21-14 thanks in part to a large number of foul shots by Nathan Hale from the floor. In the second quarter, the Rebels found their rhythm, holding the Raiders to 16 points while scoring 14. Juanita scored nine in the third and 17 in the fourth to close the gap, but it wasn’t enough. Ryan Reid had 16 points for the Rebels during the game, while Brett Hamre added 10. Devan Jackson scored eight points, followed by Avery Britton’s six. Landyn Milburn posted five for the team, as did Trevor Andrews, while Sean Brennan had four. Nathan Hale’s Gadisa Margarsa had 26 points during the game. In their second game of the tournament, Juanita beat Oak Harbor 52-32. The Rebels outscored their opponents 17-6 in the first quarter, but were outscored 11-10 in the second. It was in the second half however, that the Rebels really kicked into gear on offense. Oak Harbor had just 15 points during the entire second half, while Juanita scored 13 in the third and 12 in the fourth. Ty Eng posted the team’s high with 16 points, while Reid had nine, Jackson had seven and Hamre and Milburn each posted six points for the team. Kendrick Murphy scored three points, while Brennan and Riley O’Rourke each had two and Alex Stokes added one point.

The teams were close at the end of the first quarter with Bainbridge leading by one 1312. A tied second quarter left Bainbridge in the lead 29-28.

points, which was enough to seal the win. Whitney Dunlap had the game high with 22 points, while Hunter Hopkins added 15. Cassie Lively had seven points, Peyton Wozeniak added six, Sara Wilson had four and Claire Anderson had three points.

Rebels girls basketball team The Juanita girls basketball team hosted Kamiak on Dec. 28 as part of the KingCo/ WesCo Challenge. The Rebels won 74-41.

Walter E. Lelinski

Walt Lelinski died Friday, December 30, 2011 after a long illness. He was born in Cle Elum,WA on July 31, 1927 to John Lelinski and Mary (Tokarsyck) Lelinski. Upon his death, he was described as funny, kind, loving, a great dancer, and as his grandchildren’s “biggest fan�. Walt served as an Army intelligence officer in South Korea and graduated from Central Washington College in the spring of 1951. On August 18th of that year, Walt married his high school sweetheart Helene Mataya and moved to Kirkland to join her as a teacher in the Lake Washington School District. He taught at Central Elementary, Kirkland Junior High School, Lake Washington High School and Redmond High, where he was the head football and basketball coach during the school’s inaugural years. Walt was first and foremost an educator, specializing in geography, history and physical education. He had a unique ability to help students feel capable and confident. As a coach, he believed if he could develop a young person’s athletic ability, the self-assurance gained would help them succeed in every other aspect of their life. He earned his Masters of Education from the University of Washington in 1966. After serving as a guidance counselor at Redmond High School, he was promoted to Vice Principal at Lake Washington High School, helped launch the alternative BEST High School, and was Director of Student Services at Lake Washington Vocational Technical Institute until his retirement in 1982. Walt was preceded in death by his wife Helene. He is survived by daughter Janis Larson, son-in-law Steve Larson and granddaughter Christina Larson; daughter Debi Lelinski and grandsons J.J. Kotalik and Steven Kotalik; his sister Clara Krebs; and companion and “best buddy� LaVerne Ferguson and her son, daughter and granddaughters Hannah and Megan. A reception to celebrate Walt’s life will be held Thursday, January 12, 7:00pm and a Mass of Christian Burial on Friday, January 13 at 11:00am, both at Holy Family Parish, 7045 120th Avenue NE, Kirkland,WA, 98033. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Walt Lelinski Memorial Fund, Roslyn Ronald Cle Elum Heritage Club, P.O. Box 5, South Cle Elum, WA 98943. 569366
