She started working at the school as an instructional assistant nearly 30 years ago. “So 29 years later, six principals later, with four children and three grandchildren attending this school, I’m still here,” said Whelan. She said the school has evolved from a nationallyrecognized school in the ‘80s, to becoming a school of distinction in 2010. “I’ve seen a lot of changes and growth over the years, [ more MUIR page 2 ]

John Muir is part of Phase 2 of the district’s overall modernization program. Voters approved $436 million in bonds in 2006 to pay for the program. The new facility will be built behind the old facility. Planning and design began in 2006. Other Phase 2 schools in Kirkland include Robert Frost Elementary that was completed in 2009, and Lake Washington High School and Finn Hill Junior High, which are currently under construction.

Being able to provide the proper foundation and support for our children is extremely important. The chance to grow up in a loving family who nurtures one another and faces challenges together is something every child deserves, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure many of us have been quite lucky to grow up in this type of household. While we may not have been wealthy, we never went hungry and we were always loved and protected. We had all of the necessities and maybe even got a few â&#x20AC;&#x153;extrasâ&#x20AC;? too.

The population change for the legislative districts that serve Kirkland is opposite from congressional districts. Both the 45th and 48th, which serve Kirkland, are below the target population and will have to expand boundaries to include more voters. The differences in population will also affect the King County Council. The council has appointed a four-person commission to redraw the council districts based on 2010 Census data, according to state law and the King County Charter. The statutes require that the boundaries of each district correspond as nearly as practical with the boundaries of existing municipalities, election precincts, census tracts, recognized natural boundaries, and communities of related and mutual interest; be drawn to produce districts with compact and contiguous territory; be composed of economic and geographic units; and be as nearly equal in population as possible. Population data may not be used for purposes of favoring or disfavoring any racial group or political party. The state population grew by 14.1 percent since the 2000 census, to 6,724,540 million people. The population growth in the west also was very strong, up 13.8 percent. The U.S. average was 9.7 percent, to 308.7 million people.

out of the situation, this displacement can sometimes cause unintended consequences including anxiety and low selfesteem. Foster families provide the safe homes for these children, but many times they cannot afford the â&#x20AC;&#x153;extrasâ&#x20AC;? like music or dance lessons; or sometimes even the simple things like a warm winter coat. This is where Treehouse comes in. They are the local nonprofit organization helping to bring the â&#x20AC;&#x153;childhoodâ&#x20AC;? back to scores of foster children in our area. Treehouse bridges the gap for foster families to provide school supplies and clothing, as well as support for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;extrasâ&#x20AC;? such as tutoring or sports equipment. They help create

wonderful memories and encourage positive self-image, self-worth and self-confidence in local foster children. All of these are critical components to developing well-adjusted adults who will hopefully make the correct choices in life for themselves and for their future families.

Kirby is the sponsor of a bill that would change the way that the Houghton Community Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existence is voted on. It is currently voted on every four years by just those residents in Houghton. The bill would let the entire city vote on it. MATT PHELPS, Kirkland Reporter McBride said she has never spoken with Kirby. She said the Legislative Committee did, however, meet with bill sponsor Ruth Kagi during a 15-minute meeting in February to discuss mainly a $2 million capital request to fund the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new public safety building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did not even mention the community council,â&#x20AC;? she said. McBride added during the next council meeting she will make a statement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no connection with this bill and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to say on the record and on my word,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting all council members will have the opportunity to speak on the matter and â&#x20AC;&#x153;try to get things cleared up.â&#x20AC;? The Reporter could not contact all seven council members about if they had spoken with Kirby about the bill. Three Houghton resi-

dents, including HCC vice chair of 22 years, Elsie Weber, and two East Bellevue Community Council members testified before the Senate Committee as well. The bill would change provisions relating to socalled â&#x20AC;&#x153;municipal corporations.â&#x20AC;? If passed, no new community councils could be created after Jan. 1 2012. In addition, voters in the entire city could vote for the community council members and decide to approve or disapprove extending a community councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existence every

four years. At present, just the neighborhood governed by the community council votes on its continued existence every four years. Houghton was the first community in the state to have its own neighborhood council, which was established in 1968 after a new state law allowed for the smaller of two merging cities to form its own community council. Houghton and Kirkland agreed to consolidate, with the caveat that a community council would be established to review the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land-use decisions that related to the Houghton area. This gave the HCC the authority to veto those decisions, if necessary. Houghtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundaries include the central Houghton and Lakeview neighborhoods, and a section of Bridle Trails that together make up 6,300 residents. During a House floor debate on the bill Feb. 28, Springer called community councils â&#x20AC;&#x153;a throwback to the 1960s.â&#x20AC;? He said community councils can force a city to have two land-use policies: one for the service area and one for the rest of the city. In his own experience as a former mayor of Kirkland, Springer added that administration of this kind of dual system is expensive and difficult. If a city and a corporation become embroiled in a lawsuit, the city must pay the costs for both sides. The HCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total estimated expenses cost the city nearly $70,000 last year, according to a Finance Committee meeting report on Oct. 26, 2010. On average, the HCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual expenses are $43,000, said Eric

Question of the week: “Do you think the entire city should vote on the existence of the Houghton Community Council?”

Vote online:

wo cities made an agreement more than 40 years ago that would set the stage to merge as one. That agreement was between the cities of Houghton and Kirkland. Now a Kirkland neighborhood, Houghton residents through a community council can approve or disapprove land-use decisions that affect them. Local legislators say that 6,300 residents who have the power to veto decisions that affect the city’s soon-to-be population of more than 80,000 is a moot point. We do not argue whether or not the Houghton Community Council should still exist. We do, however, question the legislative process of getting House Bill 1812 before the Legislature without public awareness. Rep. Larry Springer said the bill is “as transparent as any other bill.” Sure, voters can retrieve a bill status report and scan the list of all the bills before the Legislature and their current status. But with 2,167 bills currently on that list, most voters do not have the time to read through each bill and find out which ones may impact them. This is why many voters track bills by sponsor on the Washington State Legislature Web site. But it muddles the process when representatives sponsor bills that do not affect their constituents.

Voters scanning through bills could easily overlook HB 1812. The bill is sponsored by representatives who live in Tacoma, Vancouver and Lake Forest Park. But the bill directly impacts residents in Kirkland and Bellevue. Kirkland voters also turn to the Kirkland City Council’s legislative agenda to keep them informed of measures that impact our city. However, HB 1812 is not on the council’s agenda. In fact, council members say they only learned of the bill last week – about four weeks after the bill was introduced on Feb. 3. When a bill gets past even city officials, lobbyists and local media, this is hardly a transparent process. Councilmember Dave Asher even said the bill’s language, mainly the term “municipal

corporations” when referring to community councils, is obscure. This does not excuse city officials who should have followed up with local legislators to check their legislative list – and check it twice. But legislators should do a better job of communicating with people they represent. This process is not over. The bill still has to run through the state Senate. Our hope is that our senators will solicit and listen to the opinions of those they represent and not blindly vote for a bill with confusing language. Regardless of what you think of the Houghton Community Council, legislative transparency is paramount to a functional democracy.

Legislation could exonerate council from bad decision There is an urgent need to solve the budget crisis. Citizens should remember what caused the crisis that caused Rep. Springer to propose legislation that would help exonerate the council from its bad decision. As a result, the council incurred millions more in debt by annexation. The proposed legislation allows up to $1 million from REET funds to be spent on maintenance rather than new capital facility projects, money that could have been used to help pay for the new facilities needed for annexation. The $1 million can now be used as a slush fund and lacks the accountability that REET funds had. But it’s good news for the current residents of Kirkland. That’s because we just might get our garbage cans back. More of the new capital facilities going to the annexation area will at least require the annexation area to help pay for the cost. Councilmember Walen support of the measure is in line with her support for annexation. No wonder she wants more of the REET funds to find her not guilty in her decision to add

millions in debt to the city’s budget that we now must pay for. Thanks Mr. Springer for your efforts. We now may get our garbage cans back, but it will be at the expense of all of the citizens of Kirkland. As for the annexation area, they’ll have to pony up more money to help pay for their capital facilities.

Legislature trying to quietly kill Houghton Community Council At the Kirkland City Council meeting on March 1, the council received a Legislative Update (item 10(b) on the meeting agenda). During this segment, Councilmember Sternoff asked about a bill that he believed would have an impact on community councils, such as the Houghton Community Council, which he identified as House Bill 1812. The other council members and staff indicated that they were unfamiliar with the bill. I decided to look into it. HB 1812, “Changing provisions relating to community municipal corporations,” is sponsored by Rep. Steve Kirby (Tacoma), Rep. Ruth Kagi (Lake Forest Park), and Rep. Jim Moeller (Vancouver) – all of whom

represent cities that do not have any community councils (one wonders what their interest might be). It was introduced on Feb. 3, heard in the Local Government Committee on Feb. 16 and voted out of committee the same day, and passed on the floor of the House unanimously (97-0) on Feb. 26. The bill does three main things: (1) no new community councils can be created after Jan. 1, 2012; (2) extending a community council’s existence must be approved by voters in the entire city, not just those in the council’s area; and (3) voters in the entire city vote for the community council members, not just those in the council’s area. If the bill passes, it would mean that all voters in Kirkland would vote on members of the Houghton Community Council, and on whether or not to continue the existence of the HCC. This seems as though it might be contrary to the principles of local control that the cities of Houghton and Kirkland agreed to when they merged. It would likely lead very quickly to the end of the HCC. When the bill was heard in committee, only one person testified in favor of it: Rep. Larry Springer. The bill report summarizes Rep. Springer’s

testimony as follows: “Community municipal corporations are throwbacks to 40 years ago; there are only two left in the state. Corporations have veto power over implementation of a city’s land use decisions within the corporation’s service area. As a result, they can force a city to have two land use policies: one for the service area, and one for the rest of the city. Administration of this kind of dual system is expensive and difficult. If a city and a corporation within its boundaries become embroiled in a lawsuit, the city must pay the costs for both sides. This bill does not do away with corporations; however, it allows the citizens of the greater city to have a voice in the corporation’s governance and continued existence.” The bill was voted out of committee unanimously the same day it was heard, with no opportunity for any further input from citizens or local officials regarding the impact it would have. Rep. Springer voted for the bill in committee. Several questions come to mind about all of this.

The final reform package was much better than earlier alternatives that had stalled in the Legislature. The Senate had agreed to pass a temporary tax-relief bill. But temporary relief would only help to keep employers afloat. In order to give businesses the certainty they need to hire permanent workers and accelerate economic recovery, the House made the $300 million tax cut permanent. Similarly, the effort of some lawmakers to permanently increase unemployment benefits hit a brick wall, even though an immediate increase would spur recovery by pumping more dollars into our local economies. The House bridged the gap

FROM OLYMPIA

Rep. Larry Springer

Gregoireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal to reduce unemployment taxes met stiff resistance. So did proposals to improve benefits for unemployed workers. But leaders for all sides kept talking and listening. Fortunately, Washington had one advantage that set us apart from other states - the healthiest UI Trust Fund in the entire country. House leaders believed that responsible leadership could find a way to protect employers from unaffordable taxes and help unemployed workers while leaving the fund as healthy as it is today. The key was to find the right balance. Working with business and labor, we found the balance we needed. The result was an unprecedented unanimous House vote for reforms that will save employers about $300 million a year while improving benefits for unemployed workers. These reforms: tQFSNBOFOUMZMPXFS unemployment tax rates to

by making the boost in benefits temporary and tying it directly to federal dollars. This compromise secured the support of business. By taking good ideas and making them better, the House overcame deadlock and produced reforms that all sides now agree will help Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s businesses, workers and families recover from these hard times. Compromise worked. The Association of Washington Businesses (AWB) makes a comparison between Washington and California that puts things into perspective.

Beneath a picture of representatives for businesses and labor, Democrats and Republicans, senators and representatives, standing together at the signing of our new reforms, the AWB noted that the recession had completely exhausted the unemployment trust funds in California and 30 other states. While other states are borrowing money to rescue their unemployment systems from insolvency, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re passing reforms that will help businesses and workers while ensuring that our UI Trust Fund remains healthy and

strong. The picture of everyone standing together at the bill signing proved what I said when the House passed the reforms. It showed there is not a business Washington or a workerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Washington. There is only One Washington. And we all need to stand together to secure our vision of opportunity for all.

ust weeks ago, Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employers faced massive increases in unemployment taxes that were required changes made by the Legislature several years ago. Even businesses that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t laid off any workers faced a 42 percent hike. It would have been a job killer at the worst possible time. But the only way to avert the tax hit was to find common ground between two very different perspectives on unemployment taxes. Employers know these taxes will increase the costs of every job and make it harder for businesses to expand or hire new workers. Labor sees them as the mainstay of the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Trust Fund that helps unemployed workers and their families survive hard times. Reducing support for the fund could hurt future benefits for unemployed workers in their times of greatest need. Bridging these perspectives wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy. Gov.

[10] March 11, 2011 [ COUNCIL from page 7] e-mail to the Reporter. McBride, who served on the HCC for six years and is currently on the Legislative Committee, said she is glad Sternoff brought the measure to the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention and â&#x20AC;&#x153;shined some light of dayâ&#x20AC;? on it. She heard about the measure in January, however she thought it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;just a rumorâ&#x20AC;? as similar measures have gone before the Legislature several times in the past and died. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give it much credence when I heard it was going through the Legislature,â&#x20AC;? McBride said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hear rumors about a gazillion bills during the year, especially in a very busy time like right now.â&#x20AC;? She said the issue also came up when the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legislative Committee met in February, though she says she left the meeting for medical reasons. McBride added the city has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very aggressiveâ&#x20AC;? legislative agenda and works hard on tracking many high-priority bills. The bill was not listed

www.kirklandreporter.com on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislative agenda, so â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very surprised that the bill was going before the Senate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something that we even thought about pushing or defending against - it was not on our radar,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did not ask for the bill, we did not promote the bill and I heard it was a rumor and then it was dead and next thing you know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passed the House.â&#x20AC;? The mayor also defended the city council against allegations that council members were involved in working with legislators to â&#x20AC;&#x153;sneakâ&#x20AC;? the bill through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now call us a lot of things, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not stupid,â&#x20AC;? said McBride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure where the breakdown is, but Kirkland is not responsible for the Legislature.â&#x20AC;? The Reporter spoke with Council members Dave Asher and Doreen Marchione, who are also on the Legislative Committee. Asher, who does not support the measure, said since the city learned about the bill last week, the council has â&#x20AC;&#x153;made sure Houghton knows everything we know.â&#x20AC;?

Asher said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lobbyists are trying to â&#x20AC;&#x153;catchup. We have a new team and it just got by them. The name of the bill was deceiving with the words â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;municipal corporations.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Marchione declined to comment and said â&#x20AC;&#x153;as a council member, I think I should stay neutral on this.â&#x20AC;?

Transparency Sternoff said the issue is not the bill itself, but of â&#x20AC;&#x153;openness and transparency. My opinion is that any state legislation that impacts a specific area of Kirkland demands public input before that legislation is presented. The council has told Kirkland citizens that we are open and transparent. From the public record this obviously didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen and it begs several questions, not the least of is why?â&#x20AC;? Rep. Larry Springer, who is married to Kirklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deputy Mayor Penny Sweet, said that is a legitimate concern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am concerned about peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perception that this was sort of hidden and slipped in,â&#x20AC;? he told the Reporter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I

was mayor of Kirkland, I made it clear to the HCC that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they should exist ... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been circumspect about my belief that this (the HCC) is just bad public policy and they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist.â&#x20AC;? He said legislators had drafted language for the bill, but were not sure if it was anything they wanted to pursue at the time. This year, legislators put together a package of bills that aimed to reduce the regulatory burden on cities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We chatted about it and the notion was, this bill makes sense too, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throw it in the mix,â&#x20AC;? said Springer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is it got thrown in the mix really late - thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the issue. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate and if I had it to do otherwise, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it that way.â&#x20AC;? Attempting to limit the number of bills he sponsored, Springer asked Kirby to sponsor HB 1812. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had nothing to do with me trying to hide anything,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact of the matter is, it now has the full light of day shining on it because it has to go through the

Senate process. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as transparent as any other bill.â&#x20AC;? Kirkland resident Toby Nixon, a former legislator and current president of the Washington Coalition for Open Government, also decided to look into the issue after Sternoff brought up HB 1812 during the meeting. He said he has not taken a position on the substance of the bill itself, but on the lack of transparency and public debate on the measure. Nixon said the issue brings up several questions, including: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did none of them (legislators) realize the impact it would have on Houghton, and consult with Houghton community leaders before voting for it? How is it that a bill in the Legislature that has such a significant impact on so many people in Kirkland and Houghton has gotten this far with so little attention?â&#x20AC;? But Elsie Weber, HCC vice chair, offered up an answer. She said she knows why elected officials didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notify Houghton residents about the bill: â&#x20AC;&#x153;They knew damn well weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d fight.â&#x20AC;?

Kirkland Woman’s Club nominated for landmark status S REPORTER STAFF

everal ambitious Kirkland women met at the Baldwin home on Jan. 24, 1920. These civic-minded women sought to better Kirkland, so they formed a club, “… to encourage and promote all subjects of education and loyalty to country and government and to pursue

such studies as outdoor art, current events, and such other subjects as from time to time shall present themselves ...” And so while many have stumbled upon the origin of Kirkland’s passion for outdoor art, that meeting represented the genesis of one of Kirkland’s oldest service organizations: The Kirkland Woman’s Club.

The club filed incorporation documents in August 1924 and that September Kirkland real estate development company, Burke and Farrar, donated two lots at today’s 407 First St., then still called 407 Bold Street. The club met in various locations, but soon sought its own facility. Members also wanted to

create a public library for Kirkland. At that time, libraries were not considered part of the government’s role, so individual community members and service organizations created them. The Woman’s Club began acquiring books from various sources in 1924 and housed its growing collection initially in the Kirkland City Council chambers while its new clubhouse was under construction. The community rallied behind this effort and held various fund-raising activities, ranging from dances and auctions to donated labor and construction materials. Among the hardest working fund raisers were the boys of Mae Belle Esty’s “Wolf Cub Scout” pack, which some sources state is the first Cub Scout pack created in the area and the nation’s first “Cub Mistress,” a position known today simply as a Den Leader. While the new clubhouse was under construction in 1925, its members placed a time capsule under the northeast cornerstone that contained a copy of the East

The building was completed in 1925 but the community continued to seek book donations and other needed items. For example, the boys in Kirkland’s Union “A” High School woodshop class built and donated the bookshelves. Initially, the library was open three days and two evenings per week. The list of club members participating then reads like a “who’s who” of Kirkland during that era. One especially active volunteer for more than 46 years was Brittania McKibben, wife of former

The best news about a colonoscopy—besides the fact that you’ll probably sleep right through it—is that should your doctor find a polyp, its painless removal now may help prevent cancer in the future. So if you’re over 50, have a parent or sibling with colorectal polyps or colorectal cancer, or suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, check with your primary care physician if colorectal cancer screening is appropriate for you. Sure, it may not be the gift you wanted, but it’s one of the best presents you can give yourself. Schedule your appointment today.

Kirkland mayor, VFW co-founder and physician, Dr. E.C. McKibben, Sr., mother of Dr. E.C. McKibben, Jr., who also practiced medicine for decades in Kirkland and is now retired, living in Redmond. Much of the club’s history was recalled during the 1970s by the late Lilly May (Davis) Anderson, daughter of club co-founder Lillian G. Davis and Dr. George Davis, Kirkland’s first physician. In addition to clubhouse functions, the structure was available for rent and even housed a well baby clinic up until Kirkland General Hospital opened in 1930. The Woman’s Club furnished and decorated the new hospital’s nursery. The club has continued its lengthy tradition of community improvements and some of its more recent projects have included the fountain in the Kirkland Cemetery and the flagpole and time capsule at Heritage Hall. The club housed and administered Kirkland’s Library until 1949 and is fondly remembered today by many senior Kirklanders. The club continues today and the clubhouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as a King County Landmark. The structure was also nominated for City of Kirkland Landmark status and the King County Landmarks Commission, acting on behalf of the City of Kirkland, is holding a public hearing at 7 p.m. March 24 at the clubhouse, 407 First St., to consider the nomination. The event will be co-hosted by the Kirkland Heritage Society. The general public is encouraged to attend and also invited to provide testimony of knowledge or memories of the Woman’s Club building.

I think it’s fantastic,” she said, adding that the kids being able to make the snacks themselves is a bonus. The goal of the competition, which was a partnership between LWSD and Sodexo, the district’s student nutrition provider, was to encourage the kids to create healthy snacks and get them thinking about their food choices. Jane Markham, a food service area manager for Sodexo, said with ingredients such as whole-wheat flour and gluten-free tortillas, it’s obvious they take health into consideration when preparing their snacks.

or almost the last two decades, Ruby Engreitz has donned leotards and hit the mats at gymnastics practice. It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always been easy, certainly not always fun, but it is something she recently discovered a new love for. The University of Washington junior, and member of the Huskies gymnastics team, is hitting her stride this season, posting career highs and winning events. For a time, though, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always an activity the Kirkland native necessarily loved to do. Engreitz, an Inglemoor High School graduate, has been involved with gymnastics since she was three, and competing since she was seven. An injury her senior year of high school meant missing the entire season, which created questions for her as she embarked on her collegiate career, and even through last season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m definitely just a better gymnast now than when I came in,â&#x20AC;? she said prior to practice in the final weeks of the regular season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming in as a freshman I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very consistent, I was

actually hurt my senior year of high school, so I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t competed my senior year of high school, so I came in and I was kind of unsure. It took me a long time to figure out gymnastics again and really this is the year that I really fell back in love with the sport. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m having a lot of fun.â&#x20AC;? With her new found love and passion Engreitz is now posting the scores to prove it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few weeks ago at ASU I had probably the best meet Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I won the all-around and got career highs on a couple of events. So that was kind of a breakthrough meet for me and really brought up my confidence. That felt really good.â&#x20AC;? Engreitz also tied for first place on the bars, her fourth bars title of the season so far. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bars is definitely my best event, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been my favorite event too. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely gotten more consistent in competing this year so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been going well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been pretty good at it and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that not a lot of people can do.â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually been going well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy with that.

While gymnastics at the high school and club level is largely about the individual, Engreitz said at the collegiate level, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more about the team, something sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really enjoyed being apart of. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have really good team chemistry this year. We all really get along and we really enjoy competing and hanging out together, that atmosphere has been really fun this year,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We actually set a bunch of team goals which really coincided with my personal goals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we just wanted to have more fun this season and enjoy each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company.

For a little while I didn’t enjoy gymnastics that much, it was a struggle, I feel like even just having that goal, to have more fun, as helped me and the team as a whole.” Coming together as a team was part of the reason Engreitz choose the Huskies in the first place. “It just felt like the right place. I really liked the gymnastics and I’m also really serious about school. UW is probably the best fit in terms of a gymnastics program that was building and that I could help them bring back their program and it’s

also a really good academic school,” said the psychology major. “That was important to me.” As a student athlete, one who has been on the dean’s list many times, finding the right balance took some work. Figuring out how to make it all work, and staying sane in the process is a key to any successful college athlete’s career. “I’ve almost learned more about delegating – kind of how to manage many levels of things at the same time,” said Engreitz. “As a college athlete it’s a lot different than being just a student. You have your school life and athletic life and social life and just really learning how to balance those is

I think that’s been helping our team.” While Engreitz still has another full season in the gym ahead of her, she knows, even if she doesn’t let the thought linger, that these days are numbered. “It’s a really rewarding sport – it’s one of those things, especially when you get to this age, you start to realize that not a lot of people can do these things and I’m only going to be able to do this for a couple more years,” said the junior. “I’d

better enjoy it while I can. It’s been a part of my life for so long it’s going to be weird when it’s gone. I’m just trying to enjoy it while it lasts.” Engreitz said she is thinking about attending grad school once she graduates from UW, but knows it’s still a ways off. For now she’s excited to see how the rest of the season goes. “I’d just like to build on what we’ve started to develop this year, team chemistry, fun and I really want to get to nationals,” she said. “Hopefully again, because hopefully we’ll get there this year.”

George Crowder, the athletic director at Lake Washington High School, was recently inducted into the Washington State Coaches Association (WSCA) softball Hall of Fame. Crowder, who has coached softball for over 35 years, has also coached baseball, basketball, football, golf, tennis, track and field, as well as wrestling, in Washington, California and Colorado. “It’s very humbling,” he said. “From a coaches

perspective you never really think about it.” Crowder coached the 2008 Eastlake 4A state softball champions, as well as the state runner up in 2004 and was named the softball coach of the year four times. He

earned All-league honors. Lake Washington’s Matt Staudacher was named to the first team, while Darien Nelson-Henry was named to the second team. Guy Lynott and Kramer Traylor earned honorable mention. Juanita’s Kellen Gildersleeve earned an honorable mention.

...obituaries Aaron Lee Haskins, Jr.

February 12, 1982 – February 12, 2011 Aaron Jr. died unexpectedly in his sleep on his 29th birthday. His life was about “living in the moment.” He valued relationships above all else – as a faithful friend, son, brother, uncle and soon-to-be husband, if Aaron called you “friend” you were a friend for life. He grew-up in Pullman and Renton, Washington playing basketball for Kennedy High School, where he graduated in 2000, and for Bellevue College. Last year he returned to finish his degree at Washington State University online while continuing his career as an insurance agent for Altig International. He saw his future in the ministry. His life’s desire was to have a marriage and a family like what his mom and dad had shared. When he met Katy Kravitz that dream started to unfold and they were to be married on April 16. Since his dad’s death 16 months ago, Aaron had been on a transformational journey in his spiritual and personal life. “Aaron’s life is a picture of what God can do when a person is committed to change and restoration,” says his mom Cheryl, “He had found his place and God’s purposes for his life.” Preceded in death by father Aaron Lee Haskins, Sr., and grandfather, SGMA Army Ret. Claude H. Dixon III, survived by mother Cheryl Dixon Haskins, fiancé Katy Kravitz, sister Latasha, brother Andrew and sister-in-law Christina; nephews and nieces Isaiah, Kaylie, Kevin and Kloe; grandparents Louis and Lucille Haskins, grandmother Juanita Dixon; and a large extended family.
