Walmart to open 2 stores in Bellevue Grocery store at Kelsey Creek, merchandise at Factoria Mall BY NAT LEVY Bellevue Reporter

After months of speculation, Walmart confirmed that it is opening a store in Bellevue. Two, actually. A Walmart spokesman confirmed Jan. 5 that Walmart will be the grocery tenant to take over the vacated Kmart site, along with L.A. Fitness. “We think Walmart can be part of the solution in Bellevue for residents who need a job or want more affordable

options close to home,” said Walmart spokesman Steven Restivo. “Plus, we see an opportunity to revive a long-dormant retail property and deliver an added economic boost to the area.” Less than a week later, the company acknowledged that it would renovate and reopen the space left empty by Mervyn’s. The 76,000-square-foot Factoria Walmart will offer a full range of general merchandise. When completed, the store will employ approximately 125 associates. The Factoria Walmart will be placed only a few doors from the Factoria Target, a Safeway, a QFC and a host of specialized small businesses. The store will occupy 64,000 square feet of the old Kmart

site. It will be in the form of the store’s “Neighborhood Markets,” similar to a 45,000-square foot model announced in Lynnwood earlier this year. Restivo said the store is expected to open in late 2012 and employ 95 people. Previously, no stores existed between Renton and Lynnwood. Both Walmart stores will feature energy-efficient technology and environmentally-sound features designed to reduce energy and water consumption and minimize waste, including skylights and LED lighting. The move to bring in a Walmart has created some buzz, with some already coming out against it. Approximately 50 people turned out Jan. 5 to protest the company’s labor practices and the uncertainty surrounding [ more WALMART page 6 ]

A modern-day Cinderella story comes to Bravern China-born jewelry designer beat the odds, came to the U.S., and made her dreams come true BY GABRIELLE NOMURA Bellevue Reporter

As a girl in rural China, Holly Zhang had to tie pieces of cotton to her feet in the winter because she had no shoes. She foraged in the mountains to have food to eat, and had to pay $5 a semester for her school tuition – nearly free by U.S. standards, but a month’s worth of earnings for the rural town she grew up in. It’s a long journey from a small farm in Manchuria to the upscale shops of downtown Bellevue, but this fall, Zhang realized a lifetime dream by opening the Holly Zhang Pearl Gallery at the Shops at The Bravern. “I feel like I’m still in a dream,” said Zhang, 38, now of Bellevue.

Former council candidate named to planning commission Bellevue City Council squabbles over Laing’s appointment BY NAT LEVY Bellevue Reporter

Aaron Laing, fresh off the closest Bellevue City Council race in recent history, has been appointed to the city’s Planning Commission. The 5-2 decision proved to be a frustrating one for several councilmembers. Claudia Balducci, John Chelminiak and John Stokes all questioned the process by which Laing was selected for the position last week, leading to a short delay. Those members said Laing was a great candidate, but they still had issues with the way he was chosen Monday night. “I think this process has been badly flawed,” Balducci said. “I think the fact that the application process closed early excluded some really interesting candidates.” Newly elected Deputy Mayor Jennifer Robertson was assigned to look into the process. She said the application advertisement opened on Nov. 23, with a deadline of Jan. 6. It

was subsequently closed Saturday Dec. 17. This was acceptable, Aaron Laing however, as the typical advertisement period lasts three to four weeks, she said. Only three people applied for the position, and the council liaison to the board, Kevin Wallace, chose to interview them by phone. He said he interviewed each of the three candidates. Additionally, there is no prescribed city code that governs how councilmembers must vet their appointments to boards and commissions. Still, unrest remained. Chelminiak appeared the most frustrated, going as far as to say that the board had become politicized and filled with candidates tied to local Republican parties. Mayor

Conrad Lee, and former Mayor Don Davidson were both upset with the introduction of partisan politics into the discussion. Wallace hoped the last few years of squabbling over light-rail was a thing of the past. “I really hoped 2012 would be a new year for the council,” he said. “We’ve got all the light-rail stuff behind us, and I’m hoping we’d be turning over a new leaf. Stokes, who defeated Laing by fewer than 100 votes, voted in favor of appointing Laing. The Planning Commission’s chief task at the moment lies in ratifying the Shoreline Master Program, which governs future development of the city’s shoreline areas. Several current planning commissioners came to speak for or against the appointment of Laing. Nat Levy: 425-453-4290; nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

Former Medina Police Chief files federal lawsuit against city Former Medina police Jeffrey Chen has filed a federal lawsuit against the city, claiming his dismissal last year had more to do with race and personal prejudice than job performance. Chen previously filed claims against the city and a public records complaint with the King County Superior Court. Chen claims that he was terminated by City Manager Donna Hanson in April 2011, following a four-month administrative leave, because he attempted to blow the whistle for secret raises tucked into the budget. He also claims his firing is racially motivated. The city responded to the federal lawsuit, claiming Chen’s accusations to be “overly verbose and repetitive” without making substantial evidentiary claims. Medina asked that the claims be dismissed because they did not follow federal guidelines. To see Chen’s claim, and a response from the city of Medina, visit Bellevuereporter.com

Missing boy may not have been seen since last April Kirkland Reporter

The father of a missing Redmond boy is now investigating the possibility that the child could be with a friend or relative of his reclusive mother. Solomon Metalwala, father of the missing 2-year-old, Sky, said he and his attorney are having a hard time putting together the boy’s whereabouts going as far back as May. “We need answers,” said Clay Terry, Solomon Metalwala’s attorney. “We are not saying Sky was definitely not here after April, but we want to know when Sky was no longer here.” The boy allegedly went missing just over two months ago while in the custody of his mother, Redmond resident Julia Biryukova. She, and Sky’s father Solomon, had been in the midst of a bitter divorce and custody battle for their two children. Other than one neighbor, who told police he saw the boy two weeks before he went missing Nov. 6, they have found no evidence Sky was in his mother’s care since April when her father visited from the Ukraine. When Solomon was granted custody of his 5-year-old daughter Maile in December he attempted to obtain her medical records from the year that he did not see his daughter. The doctor had not seen the two children in a year. “Armed with this alarming information, just before Christmas, we contacted the children’s health insurance carrier, who told us that there

had been no medical claims for payments made for either child in 2011,” said Terry. “Now that was the shocker.” Solomon Metalwala was back in court last Friday to ask the judge to withhold visitation for Biryukova due to the nature of the missing person’s case. No decision was made on the matter and another hearing is scheduled for Jan. 20. Biryukova told police her car ran out of gas the morning of the disappearance, as she attempted to take the boy to the hospital. She left Sky in the unlocked car at the 2400 block of 112th Avenue Northeast while she walked with Maile to get help. When she returned to the car, approximately an hour later, he was gone. Police later tested the car and found that it had gas and there were no mechanical issues. Biryukova has resisted cooperating with police throughout the investigation. Bellevue Police spokeswoman Officer Carla Iafrate said officers continue to reach out to Biryukova and her attorney, but she has not responded. Iafrate said the investigation has slowed, but police are still putting significant resources into the case, which they said is still classified as a missing child. Terry said that other than the one neighbor’s statement to police, no one has seen Sky since last May. Terry’s investigations have yielded evidence that last April was the last provable time Sky Metalwala was under his mother’s care.

A word about this month’s charity, the Multiple Sclerosis Society. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, sometimes disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system. It can strike children, but most commonly affects people in the age range of 20 to 50. It is between two to three times more common in women than men and is more prevalent in northern climates. The exact causes and a cure for MS have yet to be discovered, but new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease. Customer donations will go to two local chapters of the Society: The Greater

Northwest Chapter which proudly serves more than 12,000 people with MS living in Alaska, Montana, Central and Western Washington and the Oregon Chapter which serves more than 7,200 individuals with MS and their families in Oregon and SW Washington. QFC is proud to support many great charities on a local level. We thank our customers and our associates for their generosity. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of many of the less fortunate in our communities.

Budget holes Here’s one reason the state has a hole in its budget. The state put its Discover Pass into effect July 1, 2011, requiring people to buy one if they wanted to access state parks, heritage sites, wildlife and natural areas, and any recreation lands or water-access sites managed by Washington State Parks, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The $30 pass (or $10 daily pass per vehicle) was projected to raise $15.6 million. Actual revenue? Only $6.5 million. A survey found people who had two cars balked at buying the pass because it wasn’t transferable between vehicles. Wow. Who knew?

Keeping Dr. King’s dream alive

L

ast Saturday, I had a pivotal moment sitting at a table with total strangers at Crossroads Mall. I had received an email earlier in the week, telling me about an “international gathering” that would be held at the mall on Saturday, Jan. 7. The theme of the event was “How is New Year celebrated in your culture? “Being that I’m the go-to diversity reporter, I figured I would swing by to check it out. I’m not sure what I was expecting – a huge crowd watching a dragon puppet in honor of the Chinese New year tradition? Perhaps. When I arrived at the mall, I actually walked right past the small group at the table with the “International Gathering” sign. It was only four individuals who hailed from places including Hong Kong/Panama, Russia, China and India. I felt almost bashful when “Seattle” was all I had to bring to this roster of hometowns. Quickly, I realized that this was inspiration for a column, rather than event coverage; because as I sat there for several hours, I couldn’t stop myself from joining in the conversation, as opposed to observing like a reporter. I heard about the Hindu Ugadi celebration in a region of India, and 14 days of New Year, which includes Orthodox Christmas, in Russia. While there were many ways in which we differed, (I don’t think anything can compare to the traffic jams and multitudes of people who flood the streets for Chinese New Year) our traditions

drew parallels and had similarities, too. Oranges and satsumas were an auspicious, “lucky” holiday food for many of us from the U.S. and Asia. We also compared notes on other holidays. One woman and I discovered that we both honor females in March. In Russia, where she’s from. International Women’s Day is celebrated on the eighth, and in my Japanese American community, we celebrate Girl’s Day on the third. Despite that all our native languages were different, and that we sometimes struggled to understand one another, all of us listened, asked questions and tried our best to learn when someone was talking. It wasn’t tolerance – none of us simply “tolerated” our heavy accents, our Mandarin instead of Cantonese, or our monolingual limitations. To me, it felt a lot more like deep understanding, like acceptance. Just a week before Martin Luther King Jr. Day Jan. 16, I was inspired. I’m proud to report, from the trenches of the diversity beat, that the dream is alive in Bellevue. What we sometimes lack in socioeconomic diversity, we make up for in the 85 languages our children speak in schools, our 30 percent foreign-born population and the commitment that many of us share, of seeing each other for who we are, before a skin color or stereotype.

Giving them a site in the city of Bellevue is certainly not in the best interests of our city.

Gabrielle Nomura

OF NOTE

he Washington State Supreme Court ruled last week that the state is not complying with its constitutional duty to “make ample provision for the basic education of all children in Washington.” Is anyone surprised? It’s not just that the state is nickel-and-diming our kids; it’s more like it’s doing it by $5s and $10s. We know the state has a financial problem. The Legislature convened Monday and lawmakers will have to deal with a $1 billion shortfall to the state’s budget. That makes finding adequate money for education all the more difficult. But the court didn’t say, “Oh, in that case, never mind.” In fact, it has retained jurisdiction over the case to, as it says, “facilitate progress in the state’s plan to fully implement the reforms by 2018.” That means it could take another six years before the state finally fixes our broken educational system and gives our kids the education they deserve and the state constitution says the state is legally bound to provide. That timeframe is bad, but it’s actually worse. The case prompting the Supreme Court ruling was filed in 2007. A coalition of teachers, school districts, community groups and parents argued that the state had not fulfilled its constitutional obligation to fully fund basic education and relied too heavily on local levies to do the job. In other words, the state passed the buck to local taxpayers to do what it is required to do. Of course, the state also limits how much money we can raise locally to provide teachers in our classrooms. The answer doesn’t mean the state should local school districts raise whatever they can from local taxpayers. That would leave poor school districts even further behind wealthier areas – such as ours – in providing an education for their kids. The answer is for the state to do its job. And it should find a way to do this sooner than 2018. Our kids need a decent education now.

Walmart poor choice

Virginia Rogalsky, Bellevue

It was with great dismay that I read that Walmart will be occupying the space on Main and 148th. I live within a mile of that site and can only see the negative effect that will have on my neighborhood and the community as a whole. Walmart sells products made all over the world by poorly paid workers who have no protection from environmental hazards and do not have basic human rights. It is difficult to imagine that the Bellevue City Council has been unaware of their reputation.

Regarding Bellevue and other cities in the new 9th Congressional District, let’s see what we have in common. Bellevue: the Bellevue Collection. Tukwila: Southcenter. Bellevue: waterfront. Des Moines: waterfront. Bellevue: diversity. Southeast Seattle: diversity. Bellevue vs. North Tacoma ... hoo boy, you got me there. We’ll miss you, Dave.

Legislative bill targets community councils East Bellevue Community Council one of two in state. BY NAT LEVY nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

A new bill that will rehash a tense debate from last year’s legislative session could threaten the future of the East Bellevue Community Council. The bill, likely to be presented in the next few days, could open up the approval of community councils to the entire city, rather than voters who lie within the community council boundaries. Currently, voters within the community council boundary lines vote every four years on whether to keep the body around. “Our guys are absolutely and totally unrepresented if not for us,” said East Bellevue Community Council Chair Steve Kasner. The last time East Bellevue residents were asked to continue the council in 2009, more than 82 percent voted in favor, according to city records. Kasner said just this year the council has worked extensively on the development of the Kelsey Creek and Lake Hills shopping centers, and the body lobbied to make sure

extension of 140th Avenue Southeast wasn’t left off the City Council’s list of priorities during budget cutting sessions. Should the new bill, sponsored by Reps. Steve Kirby (Tacoma), Ruth Kagi (Lake Forest Park) and Jim Moeller (Vancouver), pass it could hurt not only Bellevue, but Kirkland’s Houghton Community Council, the only other such body in the state. Last year’s House Bill 1812 failed after Houghton and East Bellevue residents passionately testified against it in the Senate. This time around, a bill will come out much earlier in the session, according to Kirkland Rep. Larry Springer, who is not a sponsor, but a proponent of the move. “I thought it would be best to drop a clean bill, brand new, everyone will be notified and there will be no behind-closed doors allegations this time,” Springer said. Despite this emphasis on input, Kasner said he has not been able to speak with Springer about the bill. East Bellevue and Houghton created a task force with two members a piece to fight the bill. Springer said the new bill will smooth out some of the flaws in the old bill, including if voters in the entire city should be allowed to vote on whether or not to continue the existence of the community councils.

The Washington State Supreme Court has ruled that the state is not meeting its duty in funding basic education, which has resulted in an undue burden on districts and students. “Today’s ruling is an important step in the state’s responsibility to fund a basic education for all children,� said Eva Collins, Bellevue’s interim schools superintendent. “Bellevue was among those districts supporting this lawsuit, and I see this ruling as a crucial statement by the court.� According to the 7-2 decision issued Jan. 5, the state has failed in its constitutional obligation to “make ample provision for the basic education of all children in Washington.� The court recognized the Legislature had enacted “a promising reform package� in 2009 and indicated that legislation, if funded, “will remedy deficiencies in the K-12 funding system.�

Steve Kasner, chair of the East Bellevue Community Council, has been working with the developers for years on the project. He could be seen observing the protest. Kasner was upset, not over the decision to place a Walmart in the spot, but because of the lack of transparency on the issue.

Kurt Springman, vice president of the Newport Hills Community Club, which represents neighborhoods southeast of Factoria, said anything that brings in jobs will help the community. With the problems experienced by the Newport Hills Shopping Center, new businesses coming in felt refreshing to Springman “Our little shopping center up here is a little devoid of businesses at the moment, so anything that is going to be filling shopping and providing choices is a good thing,� he said. Residents’ curiousity over the possibility of a Walmart made its way to City Hall, before the initial announcement. At the Jan. 3 City Council meeting, Bellevue resident Sonja Rossman, who lives less than half a mile from the Kelsey Creek Center, said she was stunned to find out that Walmart may be coming to Bellevue. Following her testimony, she looked for a response from city staff. “It’s news to me,� City Manager Steve Sarkozy told her. Walmart acknowledged the first store three days later. According to Bellevue’s Development Services Director Mike Brennan, permitting documents for the site don’t require the developer to name future tenants.

The Developmental Education department at Bellevue College recently awarded Literacy Partners Awards of Excellence to two local employers for going out of their way to help working students succeed. The Safeway store at Evergreen Village in Bellevue (1645 140th Ave. NE) is covering the cost of tuition for Bellevue College student Eldin Juzvin. After completing a certificate in Retail Management, Juzvin hopes to earn a degree in Business Administration. Managers at the Marshalls store at Overlake Fashion Plaza in Redmond (2150 148th Ave. NE), the second winner, encouraged student Elena Semaykina to take English as a Second Language (ESL) classes and created a work schedule that allows for regular attendance. “In these difficult economic times, many students face challenges in juggling work, school and family obligations,� said Program Chair Tom Graham. “The instructors here at Bellevue College have found that some of the most successful working students have supportive and understanding employers, like Safeway and Marshalls.� Bellevue College’s Developmental Education department offers classes in English as a Second Language, Adult Basic Education (reading, writing and math), GED preparation, and workplace readiness.

Pay or delay App shows choices between tolls, time BY NAT LEVY Bellevue Reporter

When choosing whether or not to pay the tolls on State Route 520 bridge, drivers now face a choice between their wallets and their watches. A new mobile phone application is now available to show drivers how much time or money can be saved by crossing different bridges over Lake Washington. The application, born from the website 520or90.com, asks drivers to input their point of origin and intended destination and returns a snappy recommendation for the cheapest route and the fastest route based on real-time traffic data and tolls. “We wanted to do something to

help the Seattle community make better decisions about their commute – saving time and money on the road,� said 520or90.com team leader Gabe Brown. “The toll isn’t all bad news – commuters just need help understanding when they can use it to their advantage.� The 520or90 application can be downloaded free of charge for iPhone and Android users. The application does consume data and a carrier data plan is recommended for use while on the go. 520or90.com began at Startup Weekend Seattle on Nov. 11, 2011. A diverse team of nine engineers, designers, marketers and business development professionals came together to build a functional website in just 48

Business Calendar Jan. 18 hours. The site was conceived as a service to the Seattle community, helping commuters to make the most of the disruptive 520 tolling set to begin. Nat Levy: 425-453-4290; nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

ZHANG CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Zhang carries a variety of pearls from Japan, China, Tahiti and Australia. Except for the sterling silver pieces, Zhang designs the jewelry herself. Most items range from about $50 to $120. She says creating a brand that will be attractive to middle-class women is important, especially because the Bravern can be seen by some as upscale and inaccessible. She returns to China annually to stay involved with the pearl industry, to design her pieces and purchase jewelry. With a tailored black suit and heels, the same color as her long hair, it brings tears to the jewelry designer’s eyes to talk about what she went through to get to this point. Her childhood spanned the last years of Mao’s Cultural Revolution. She remembers waving a little red flag and learning anti-imperialist slogans in school. When she moved from the countryside to Beijing, she faced discrimination for her rural background and had no choice but to live in slums. Her then-husband, an American whom she met in Beijing, was a buyer for a jewelry business that concentrated on pearls. She worked hands-on with the girls assembling the jewelry and gradually introduced her own designs. In 2002, the two of them moved to the U.S. to the Everett area. Zhang held jewelry show fundraisers at hospitals in western and eastern Washington. She moved to Bellevue two years ago to open her shop with her current husband, James Rivera, a former Microsoft employee. It’s not luck that’s helped this woman go from living in a house made of mud to inhabiting the corner shop beside Neiman Marcus. “It’s hard work, and a lot of determination,” Rivera said.

Bellevue College joins $1 billion ‘Green Challenge’ Bellevue College has joined 32 other leading institutions of higher learning to launch the Billion Dollar Green Challenge. The goal is to invest a cumulative total of $1 billion in energy efficiency upgrades on participating campuses. Bellevue College is the only institution in Washington state to be involved in the program. BC students made this possible through an initiative that created the Student Environmental Sustainability Fund (SESF). Using a designated student fee, the fund provides resources for environmentally beneficial activities and upgrades on campus.

WSDOT chooses team to build 405 HOT lanes BY NAT LEVY Bellevue Reporter

The Legislature directed the Washington State Transportation Commission to conduct an independent traffic and revenue study of I-405 express toll lanes and will make a decision later this year. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2015.

Work to construct new lanes that will reduce congestion as they travel between Bellevue and Lynnwood got on the fast track this week as the Washington State Department of Transportation picked a company to build the I-405, Northeast Sixth to I-5 Widening and Express Toll Lanes project. Flatiron Constructors of Seattle submitted the apparent best value proposal of $155.5 million to complete design and construction on the last I-405 Nickel and Transportation Partnership Act-funded project. “Flatiron has assembled an excellent design-build team that brings innovative design at an aggressive price to build 17 miles of complex roadway improvements,� said Kim Henry, I-405/SR 167 director. “This project is about congestion relief.� The project will complete a new lane in each direction adjacent to the general purpose lanes from Northeast Sixth Street in Bellevue to SR 522 in Bothell. Crews st also will build new northbound ramps from Northfrom 11 AM to 4 PM east 160th Street to SR 522 and nine noise walls.

The HOV lane from SR 522 in Bothell to I-5 in Lynnwood would be converted into a highoccupancy toll lane.

BY JOSH SUMAN Bellevue Reporter

Edward Kim won a pair of state titles in 2011. He hopes to earn a trip to nationals with the BCST in April. CHAD COLEMAN, Bellevue Reporter

Andy Pym knows how to motivate. After working with Eastlake sophomore Edward Kim on the Bellevue Club Swim Team since Kim was in elementary school, the longtime coach is aware of exactly what to say to make sure Kim is pushing himself to his limits. “At times when I’m not working hard he asks me, ‘Do you think that will get you to Omaha?,” Kim said. “It drives me to work harder than I normally would.” The reference to Omaha points towards Kim’s goal of making the Olympic Trials later this year in Omaha,

Neb. Kim won the 100 and 50 free for Eastlake at the 4A state championships last season and knows there is more on the horizon in the pool as both a prep and accomplished club competitor, including a chance at the maximum eight individual titles at the state meet. He travelled to Stanford for the Junior Nationals and has swam at several other national club meets, learning some difficult lessons during the process after finishing 24th in one event and failing to make the finals in another. “I’m just thinking, ‘Wow, I’m not even close to the top right now, and I need to work harder,” Kim said of his mindset after junior nationals. “They have probably worked twice as hard as I have.” Pym said initially, Kim was somewhat reserved in his passion for swimming. But as the time dropped and the records piled up, a light bulb went on and Kim’s potential in the pool became obvious to both himself and Pym. “He’s dominated 15 and under locally and at the sectional level he’s pretty good, one of the top four or five,” Pym said. His swimming abilities are really natural.”

BAC swimmer eyes senior nationals

T

here is no tougher dilemma for a sports fan than when a national storyline overlaps with a team that carries a rooting interest. That was the case for me on Sunday, when my Oregon Ducks were looking for a 3-1 Pac-12 start in men’s hoops at the same time Tim Tebow was looking to shut the mouths of sports know-it-alls around the country by moving on in the AFC playoffs against the Pittsburgh Stealers. I used the “last” button for most of the night, flipping back and forth between Cal’s domination of Oregon and Tebow’s uncanny ability to go from horrifically inept to football demigod all in the course of one series. But as the DenverPittsburgh game came down the stretch, despite loathing both organizations as any true Seahawks fan does, I couldn’t look away. And that is the essence of Tebowmania. Opinions vary on everything from the validity of his religious fervor to the poorly executed fundamentals of his throwing motion. Just as they should. As important as third-down execution, free throw percentage or the advanced baseball metric of BABIP (batting average on balls in play) are, each ceases to remain relevant when no one is talking about them. Argument is what makes sports great and it’s tough to remember a figure that has inspired as much debate as Tebow. Most often, at least some common ground exists on even the most devisive sports figures. Dennis Rodman was a hated figure outside the cities he played in, but no one can deny his presence on the boards. Powerful people argued about whether or not Doug Flutie could carry a team, but no one questioned his character. Few if any of Tebow’s detractors changed their opinion after the wild card round win. It’s similarly unlikely that any of his supporters will jump off the bandwagon if the Broncos are unable to get past Tom Brady and New England this weekend. Everyone has an opinion on basically everything Tebow does and is willing to defend it passionately, even if that means throwing common sense out the window. Maybe it’s the unpredictability he brings, or the way he sports his emotions on his shoulder pad, but there’s something about Tebow that makes him impossible to ignore. When Denver has the ball, some will irrationally cheer for a team they have no connection to or even possibly once despised. Others will wait for Tebow to misfire on a throw or fumble the ball, ready to spring to their feet exuberantly at a moment’s notice. No one is on the fence when it comes to Tebow and everyone will have one thing in common: they will all be watching.

For Trull, the win gave him a fourth straight tournament title and his fourth consecutive at the Shoreline Invitational, which he has won every year since his freshman season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His success has been a result of a lot of work,â&#x20AC;? Ovens said of Trull. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s near the top in all class rankings and is ranked nationally in the 220 pound weight class.

Peter Ovens also became a back-to-back winner at Shoreline with the win after capturing a championship last season as well.

Police officer injured after bike crash

Climie Hill (c. 1875 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1956) Climie Hill was born in California and moved to Seattle with his family when he was a small boy. He and BELLEVUEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S PAST his three This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;Ś brothers all attended the University of Washington and received degrees in engineering. After graduating, In August of 1916, the US Army Corps of Engineers completed the Lake Washington Ship Canal, and the water level of Lake Washington dropped nine feet. Many of the wells in Bellevue dried up, and it was obvious that the town needed a better water system. Climie Hill and four other men formed the Bellevue Water Company to solve the problem. Hill knew how to build the water system and the pumphouse that would operate it. He could also use his Chlorine Sterilizer to make

Cavalia extends performances

BY GABRIELLE NOMURA Bellevue Reporter

Although the confident high-school senior doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jake Nicholson is nervous. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jan. 7, opening night of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godspellâ&#x20AC;? at First Stage Theatre in Issaquah, and he plays a leading role â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Judas. He hopes heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to say his lines with finesse, and whip out that darn double pirouette in one of the dance numbers. But when Nicholson takes the stage at 7:30 p.m., that fear gives way to an adrenaline rush. This is why he loves to perform. The naturally-talented singer has been involved with Village Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s KIDSTAGE program for the past three years, in addition to acting in community theater in his hometown, Renton. But recently, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working hard to improve the dance element of musical theater performance. Thanks to Village Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute, a program started a year ago for youth in grades 6 to 20 years, Nicholson is becoming the triple threat heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to become to make it in show biz. From 3:45-10 p.m. each Monday night, Nicholson and his friends can be found at First Stage Theatre for their institute classes. Nicholson is able to connect with these likeminded young people better than many of his classmates at Bellevue Christian School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pick them up and we get dinner together,â&#x20AC;? he said. In addition to performing in many of the KIDSTAGE [ more KIDSTAGE page 16 ]

A strong demand for tickets to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cavalia: A Magical Encounter Between Human and Horse,â&#x20AC;? has prompted organizers to add an additional week of performances. Cavalia, which premieres on Jan. 18 under the White Big Top at Marymoor Park, will now extend its run to Feb. 12. Tickets, from $34.50 to $99.50 and performance dates and times are available at 866-999-8111 or at www.cavalia. net. Marymoor Park is located at 6046 W.

By maintaining good oral-health practices at home and scheduling regular office visits, most patients can avoid many common dental problems. Daily brushing and flossing, and the application of sealants, can help youngsters avoid tooth decay. Adults can avert their most common problem, gum disease, with regular professional care. In cases where tooth loss, breakage, or misalignment does occur, your dentist is the expert in a variety of advanced restoration and replacement techniques. In addition, there are a number of cosmetic procedures, including tooth whitening, veneers, and bonding, that effectively remedy chipped, discolored, and gapped teeth. The more patients know about dental health, the better their smiles. In the weeks and months ahead, this column will address all aspects of dental care. Our entire staff is pleased to welcome you to our column. One of the most important parts of tooth care happens at home. Brushing and flossing properly, along with regular dental checkups, can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. At CHRIS CLAVE DMD, FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, we invite your questions about your oral health.

He attended Kenwood and Lakeview Grade Schools and graduated from Nampa Senior High School in 1952 as class VicePresident. He was active in Boy Scouts and Masonic youth Program, DeMolay, becoming a Master Councilor. He attended Boise State College, did a tour in the US Army in Germany as part of the US Army of Occupation and upon discharge was recruited to swim at the University of Idaho where he graduated with a degree in Education in 1958. John taught high school social studies in Boise then earned his Masters in Counseling from Washington State University and became a counselor. He left education briefly to market textbooks for Harcourt Brace World, returning to education as a counselor when Interlake High School opened in Bellevue, WA. He earned his Principals credential and served as an Assistant Principal at Interlake for several years before becoming Principal of Bellevue High School. His long, successful and rewarding career in education was culminated as Director of Human Resources for the Bellevue School District. No matter what the position, he cherished most his relationship with people. John was an active member of Bellevue Kiwanis as well as local and state professional associations such as the Washington School Personnel Association where he served on the Board. His first marriage in 1957 was to Dixie Gross. They had 4 children: Michael, Steven, Susan Lynn (deceased), and David. John married Sarah Phillips on January 2, 1980. Their 32 year marriage focused first on their shared careers in education with summer months spent boating with family and friends and Queen City Yacht Club in the San Juans and Gulf Islands, first as sailors and then as power boaters. They enjoyed traveling especially to sunny climes with friends during vacations and more extensively after retirement.With a home in Palm Springs they became dedicated bikers. They loved to support the activities of their three boys and grandchildren and nieces and nephews often traveling across the state and even across the country to cheer for endeavors in sports, the arts, vocational and educational events. While his career was in education he gained many

practical skills through part time jobs. He was a lifeguard and YMCA swim instructor; wheat ranch combine driver; horsebackmounted forest service worker, owner and manager of a mineral hot springs, tractor-roto tiller operator, landscape designer, and ambidextrous carpenter. John began swimming as a youth and competed through to the Masters level. In his later years he much preferred easing into tropical waters. John was also an accomplished skier, paddler, sailor, teacher and outdoorsman. While quiet, kind and humble by nature he had a fierce competitive streak and loved to win with that ever-present twinkle in his eyeâ&#x20AC;Ś Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to his family and education was paralleled by his love for dogs, a passion for cars and to DIY projects. John cherished canine companions. He always had an immaculately maintained special car as a project, most recently an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;85 Cadillac Biarritz Convertible. His eye for design and talent for craftsmanship put his touch on every property he owned â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from small remodel projects to major renovations. As with people, he saw the best in things and brought it out. John is survived by his wife, Sarah Phillips, sons Michael (Wendy), Steven (Annee) and David (Holly); grandchildren Olivia, Amelia and Harrison; nieces and nephews J.B., Beth, Brett, Kevin, John, Donna, Daniel, Martha, Kris, Mark, Russell,Warren, Carolyn and a large extended family of cousins, great nieces and nephews.
