Annexation will save Kirkland money on new garbage contract BY MATT PHELPS mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

M

ost economic talk about the annexation of Kingsgate, Finn Hill and Juanita residents is centered on how much will it cost current Kirkland residents. But when it comes to garbage collection, the addition of annexation residents may save current Kirkland resi-

dents money. For customer in the annexation area already receiving service, the rates will decrease. “It is an economy of scale,” said John MacGillivray of the Kirkland Public Works Department. The addition of 34,000 people to the city was one

of the factors that allowed Kirkland to negotiate an otherwise lower rate with Waste Management. The Kirkland City Council will consider customer rates this fall. “The negotiations went very well. They were not adversarial,” said MacGillivray. “Both sides

were motivated to get it done. We were really looking to keep what we had and just add services because it is a good contract.” The council, during its March 15 meeting, unanimously approved the seven-year contract with Waste Management, Inc. (WMI) for the collection of garbage, recyclable items and compostable materials beginning on July 1. The

Union pickets Evergreen for new contract Holding signs like “New ER, same uninsured families” and “Evergreen be a good neighbor,” nearly 50 Evergreen Hospital Medical Center union workers and employees picketed in front of the main hospital’s emergency room entrance in Kirkland on March 16. Later that week, workers also protested outside of the new Redmond facility in Bella Bottega Shopping Center on Saturday. The purpose of the picketing was to draw public attention to Evergreen’s “troubling” practices, according to Linnae Riesen, communications [ more UNION page 5 ]

contract provides for services to residential, multi-family and commercial properties in current city limits, along with residents that will be annexed to the city on June 1. Under the new contract, the city is projecting a 4.4-7.4 percent rate increase for current Kirkland residents. “4.4 percent of that is pretty firm,” said MacGillivray. “The other 0-3 percent depends on how fast annexa-

[ PETTER from page 1] friends are invited to join together for a walk today at 5:30 a.m. in remembrance of his routine morning trek along Lake Washington Boulevard. The event will begin in front of Sur Le Table at 90 Central Way. Many motorists remember Petter for his early morning walks and his friendly demeanor, as he waved to passing cars. Petter made a name for himself in Kirkland during the 1950s through the 1990s with Bel-Kirk Motors in downtown at the corner of Market and Central Way. He also served a term-and-a-half as the president of the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce. One of his biggest impacts in Kirkland came as a board member emeritus of KITH, for which Petter helped establish Petter Court, two lowincome four-plex housing developments. Petter had such an impact on the organization that they established an annual award in his honor - the Bill Petter Homeless Advocate Award. Petter also raised nearly $150,000 for the March of Dimes March for Babies during the past 12 years. This year he was in the process of raising $40,000 for the March of Dimes. He also served on the City of Kirkland’s Civil Service Commission. “I have been volunteering with the March of Dimes for nearly 40 years and I am proud of their work to help give every baby a healthy start in life,� Petter was quoted by the March of Dimes last year. “He was an advocate for everything positive in town,� said Woods. “He would always greet you with ‘Hey brother.’� A friend and fellow Kiwanis member, who normally attended an exercise class with Petter, found him on the floor of his bedroom when he failed to show up for class on Monday. Despite attempts to revive Petter he was pronounced dead of a heart attack at Evergreen Hospital around 11:30 a.m. “Bill takes a whole culture with him,� said Rod Graham, Kirkland Kiwanis member and friend, who added that Petter was also known for baking cookies for various Kiwanis events. “There are a bunch of jokes that we will not be able to tell anymore because no one will understand them.�

Picketing presence Two of SEIU’s biggest issues on the bargaining

Bothell resident Carol Morris, an environmental services worker at Evergreen for five years, motivates picketers at the main Evergreen Hospital Medical Center campus in Kirkland on Wednesday. “We’re seeing that the hospital is sub-contracting, they’re putting jobs outside of Evergreen workers and those sub-contractors are mostly low paid and they haven’t been trained the way we have,�said Morris. “It compromises patient care.� MATT PHELPS, Kirkland Reporter

table are outsourcing and “providing affordable health care� to the union workers, Riesen said. On Wednesday, union employees let their voice be heard. Kirkland resident Nancy Jenkins, a certified nursing assistant at Evergreen’s Kirkland campus for 12 years, said her co-workers with families have to pay about $400 per month in health care. Add to that dental and eye care, and they’re looking at more than $600. Though she doesn’t support a family, Jenkins said it is “sad for those with families who can’t afford health care.� Marysville resident Michelle Matthews, a Health Unit Coordinator (HUC) in the neonatal intensive care unit at Evergreen for 17 years, said the group would “really like to have a different kind of relationship with our employer than we’ve had in the past. We both have the same goals here of quality for our patients. We really feel that means as far as our employer, having quality employees and treating us

like quality employees.� The mother of three also said workers need affordable health care. “It’s a crisis for us - we can’t afford to take care of our families,� said Matthews, whose children are insured through her husband’s employer because she can’t afford health care. “It’s very much a hardship and we’d like to see Evergreen join with us in making a commitment to provide quality health insurance at an affordable price for those of us who are doing everything we can every day to provide quality health care to the public.� Redmond resident Debbie Pronk, a registered nurse at Evergreen for 15 years, commended Evergreen for being a great employer. However, “I’m so disappointed that they haven’t been able to work closely with partners to negotiate a contract,� said Pronk, who previously served on the hospital’s Community Advisory Board. She protested with her peers on Wednesday to

show them support. “They’ve been my coworkers for many years, our families get health care here,� said Pronk. “I’m concerned about my co-workers and the outsourcing Evergreen is doing. This is the last resort.�

Agree to disagree SEIU took out a full-page in the March 11 edition of the Reporter, criticizing the fact that Evergreen uses an outside contractor for its commercial cleaning services — or what SEIU calls environmental services. The ad, which ran in the Redmond, Kirkland, Bothell and Sammamish Reporter newspapers, said by outsourcing, Evergreen is sacrificing “infection control� at the new Redmond facility. “They are a neighbor and leader in the community,� Riesen said. “We are asking

People who work in SEIU’s environmental services are “the front lines of infection control,� Riesen said. “We want to make sure the job is done right.� Riesen said for-profit contractors often cut corners in order to make more money, ultimately posing more health threats to the medical facility’s patients. “We’ve seen it happen at other hospitals. Their mission is not to provide quality services, but to make money,� Riesen said. “They often rush people through the cleaning process, causing very serious infection in hospitals.� Riesen added that Swedish Medical Center, which also uses SEIU workers, recently put a ban on outsourcing. SEIU would like to see a similar ban by Evergreen, Riesen said. Taylor said Eastside Commercial Building Maintenance has worked for Evergreen for more than a year and “we’re confident in their capacity to address all cleaning issues, including infection control.� SEIU disagrees with Evergreen’s outsourcing and wants affordable health care, two pillars for Saturday’s picketing. Bellevue resident Abam Bibba, an EVS (environmental services) worker at Evergreen for 11 years in the surgical unit, said she and her husband can’t afford to put their three children on her health insurance. “It’s sad that I work for health care and I can’t put my kids on their health insurance,� she said. “I think they should just meet us somewhere. We are willing to negotiate, but we need affordable health care insurance because we are health care workers.

director for Service Employee International Union (SEIU) Healthcare 1199 Northwest chapter. Evergreen and SEIU have been negotiating for the last five months for a new three-year Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), which expired at the end of October. The two sides have had 15 negotiating sessions since last September and the last two have been with a mediator — approved by both sides — from the Public Employment Relations Commission. “We are confident that we will reach an agreement at the table,� said Kay Taylor, Evergreen vice president of marketing. There are many issues between Evergreen and SEIU, which represents 630 of Evergreen’s 3,300 employees, Taylor said. “There are a number of issues including wages, benefits, money for training and education, mandatory union membership, outsourcing and paid time off,� she said. Evergreen’s annual operating budget is about $750 million, nearly $15 million of which comes from the levy money paid to King County Public Hospital District No. 2 that includes Redmond and Kirkland. In 2009, Evergreen paid $235 million in employee salaries, wages, and benefits, or nearly 61 percent of the hospital’s total expenses for the year, according to a financial report. The group held a bargaining session Wednesday, after the Reporter’s deadline. The union employees continue to work under the previous contract’s provisions until an agreement is made, Riesen said.

them to be a good neighbor, by protecting quality care and quality jobs.� However, Evergreen officials said this outsourcing of commercial cleaning services is nothing new for its off-site campuses. In fact, it’s been a 20-year practice, Taylor said adding that Eastside Commercial Building Maintenance is the contractor for its Duvall, Sammamish, Woodinville and now Redmond sites. The new Redmond facility, which opened Monday, will require approximately 5-8 employees to meet the cleaning standards, said Taylor. While SEIU will lose those jobs to outsourcing, it will gain more jobs in other fields at Redmond. Evergreen will be adding 62 new full-time positions at the Redmond facility, including 32 SEIU positions in other services besides commercial cleaning, Taylor said. The main reason Evergreen contracts out its commercial cleaning services is efficiency, according to Jeff Friedman, Evergreen vice president of Human Resources. The outside contractor provides supervision and proper staffing support if one facility is short on staff at one location, then it can pull an employee from another facility to make sure the job gets done, Friedman said. “The vendor also provides the necessary equipment and therefore we do not need to purchase equipment, maintain it or create space for storage,� Taylor said. However, SEIU feels that its environmental services workers would be more efficient and effective.

The Kirkland Reporter Police Blotter is not intended to be representative of all police calls originating in Kirkland, which average about 800 per week. Between March 1117, the Kirkland Police Department reported 602 traffic violations (seven DUIs), 18 alarm calls, 18 car accidents, 11 noise complaints, nine thefts, five car prowls, five domestic violence calls, nine calls for harassment, four acts of fraud, seven calls of a disturbance, three calls for illegal substances and 11 calls of civil disturbance.

Removing the bridge will allow crews to finish building a new, longer, wider bridge over I-405 at NE 12th Street. The state is replacing the bridge to make room for new northbound ramps from Northeast Eighth and NE 10th streets. The project is designed to improve safety and traffic flow between I-405 and SR 520. Crews will close I-405 in both directions from Friday, April 1 at 11 p.m. to Monday, April 4 at 4 a.m. Crews also will close NE 12th

Motorists are urged to use alternate routes or defer trips during the 53-hour closure period as the state anticipates congestion throughout the region. Northbound I-405 off-ramps will be open as far as NE Eighth Street. Southbound drivers will detour via SR 520 to 108th Ave. NE. The state recommends motorists use recommended regional routes unless they plan to visit Bellevue. Downtown Bellevue will be open for business. Drivers should expect heavy traffic on the detour routes and throughout the region.

EDITOR’S NOTE

sat huddled in a small basement storage room with my five siblings waiting for the “big one.� Always the worrier, my mother told us we would be safer in the confines of our cement basement should the tornado hit. Of course, living in upstate New York, the idea of our house lifting off and twirling in a tornado – let alone any natural disaster – was as far off as the Land of Oz. Nevertheless, we waited out the warning until the TV anchorman told us it was safe. Years later, I would encounter my second brush with nature’s fury when a 6.8 magnitude temblor jolted the Pacific Northwest. The 2001 earthquake was so powerful it cracked the Capitol dome – and shook my sense of security. That day, I was studying in the campus library when the rattling startled me. Books fell just feet from me as the room swayed. My first thought: I don’t want to die alone. I joined two women crouched underneath a table and prayed that my toddlers at home were okay. When I later got to a payphone and asked the sitter how my kids reacted, she said, “Weeeeee!� Through both close encounters, I have considered myself lucky. But after the recent earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, I felt more vulnerable than ever when my son asked me, “Mom, what if that happened to us?� There are several things we can do to prepare ourselves for a disaster. Here are a few tips from the City of Kirkland’s Emergency Preparedness Web site: t'BNJMJFTBOECVTJOFTTFTTIPVMEFTUBCMJTIBQMBO  including a place for everyone to meet outside following an emergency. Practice that plan regularly. t4UPDLTFWFSBMEBZTPGFNFSHFODZXIFSFWFSZPV regularly spend time – at home, work, in your car. t&RVJQZPVSIPNFXJUITNPLFBOEDBSCPONPO

But it is also important to be prepared on a grander scale. Last year, Kirkland resident Liv Grohn rallied her Peter Kirk neighborhood and held an emergency preparedness meeting at Peter Kirk Elementary. During the meeting, participants learned about the Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) program. Developed by the State of Washington’s Emergency Management Public Education Department, MYN is a program designed to bring neighborhoods together after a disaster to save lives and homes. It’s a great resource that helps the community identify the skills and equipment each neighbor

has that would be useful in an effective disaster response. MYN teaches nine steps to take immediately following a disaster. Some of those include: t1SPUFDUZPVSIFBET IBOEBOEGFFUXJUIBIFM met, sturdy shoes and leather gloves t5BLFDBSFPGZPVSIPNF4IVUPČUIFOBUVSBMHBT in your home if it smells like rotten eggs or you hear it hissing as it escapes broken pipes. t4IVUPČUIFXBUFSBUUIFIPVTFNBJOć  JTXJMM help keep water in the water heater available for drinking and hygiene.

Fond memories of the Kalakala Being 80, and a native, Matthew McCauley’s story on the Kalakala provides me with a few memories. Yes, she sure sounded different. Were there any other single-ender car ferries operating on Puget Sound? Don’t think so. Was it regular practice to operate as a double-ender docking? Think so. My mother produced only boys, so she was a volunteer with Seattle Girl Scouts, which included ferryboat rides to visit the Robbins Family and Camp Robbins. Thus our rides on the Kalakala.

Dick Seelye, Kirkland

More parking spaces unnecessary at proposed fire station I am in favor of combining two fire houses into the proposed station that

would be on N.E. 138th Place. However, I believe that putting in the proposed 20 extra parking places is unnecessary. Until now, there has been no need for those parking spaces. There is parking in Big Finn Hill Park, as well as a few spaces next to the marked entrance to the trail system. Adding more spaces and therefore traffic to that already entering and exiting N.E. 138th Place would be an added danger on an already dangerous curve on Juanita Drive.

Elizabeth Robertson, Kirkland

Parking lot at proposed fire station would invite traffic After reviewing the available information from the fire district, Denny Creek Neighborhood Alliance and talking to neighbors, we support locating the fire station at the 138th Pl. site in Big Finn Hill

Park. It’s our belief that the fire station would be an asset to the entire Finn Hill neighborhood to have an optimal location for providing emergency services. We only request that the project be managed in a more conducive manner to encourage communication/proper notification with the surrounding community as the project did not get off to a good start. The backhoe just “showed up� and started mowing. We are confident that feedback has been heard and the project will take a more positive course going forward. We are opposed, however, to the additional 20 parking spaces over the 10 required for the staff. All of the trails are already used interchangeably by both bikers and hikers and we do not see the need to establish a formal parking area. In fact, there is ample parking at Big Finn Hill Park as well as St. Edwards Park where most bikers and hikers

initiate their rides and then branch off to both the northern trails adjacent to St. Edwards park and the trails directly in our neighborhood. Further, by establishing a parking lot, we are not comfortable that the beauty of our area would be properly managed. A parking lot only invites trash, car traffic and other problems associated with a parking lot – especially as our area will soon face horrible traffic issues when car traffic utilizes Juanita Drive to circumvent the 520 bridge tolls. The parking lot proposition leads to many questions. Is there a budget to manage the parking lot for trash removal, grievances, dumping, overnight parked cars, etc.? Also, has the impact of the current use of the trails been considered as a parking lot will change the current “community approach to the trails?�

Abandoned Kittens or a Pregnant Stray Cat – What To Do?

Meet local author Janie Li Fox as she

copies of her inspirational new ‘When God signs book, “When God Wears Fur,� from 11 a.m. p.m. April 2 at Petco, 12040 N.E. 85th Wears Fur’ toSt.,4Kirkland.

If you’ve ever found a litter of tiny kittens, you’ve probably been confused about what to do for them. Before you disturb the nest, be certain the kittens are actually abandoned. A “momcat� can be harder to spot than the stealth bomber, but just because she’s not visible doesn’t mean she’s not around. If the kittens are clean, plump, and sleeping quietly in a heap, odds are that they’ve got an attentive mom. Abandoned kittens will be chilled and the nest may be soiled. They may cry be crying from hunger. Whether or not there is a

“momcat,� this little family needs help. Unless there is human intervention at this point, there will be more litters born to fight for their lives. Fortunately, there is a solution. Contact an animal shelter, such as MEOW Cat Rescue in Kirkland. We have trained foster parents to rescue and care for homeless cats and kittens, both tame and feral. Feral cats live in colonies and congregate near food sources. Colonies can be managed with a non-lethal method called Trap-NeuterReturn (TNR), in which cats are humanely trapped,

spayed/neutered, and returned to their colony site where volunteer caregivers provide food, water and shelter. TNR offers feral cats the best chance to live safe, healthy lives, while stopping their reproduction. You can be part of the solution by becoming a foster parent. MEOW provides advice, guidance and support and covers all medical expenses for fostered animals.

Contact MEOW Cat Rescue to get started. Whether we encounter newborn kittens or feral parent cats, together we can create a better world for all the cats we meet. Each kitten season we are reminded daily of MEOW’s motto, “all nine lives are precious.�

Some retirement communities, including Kirkland’s Merrill Gardens, have state-sponsored programs for some seniors that meet certain income requirements. There are many things to consider outside of price to make a good decision. Consider if the person is able to manage daily tasks and living functions. If not, they may need more assistance. If

there is someone who is able to take care of that person that should also be taken into consideration. If the person wants more activities and the opportunity to interact and make new friends that is also something to look for. Every community offers something different. And while most nursing homes are based on a medical model, assisted living is

based on something else. “Assisted living retirement communities are based on a social model,” said Ostfeld. “They are designed for seniors who want to maintain their independence and lifestyle.”

Other conditions that greatly improve with treatment and which Kirkland Spine and Posture Center specialize in include Back Pain, Disc Bulges, Sciatica, Neck and Should Pain and Neuropathy. One of the main reasons why people avoid seeing a chiropractor is that they think it will be painful. But Dr. Love offers techniques that put clients more at ease. “We can do light touch, low-force adjusting,� said Dr. Love. “We can make it so that there is no ‘popping.’� Some of the other issues that new clients are con-

How to choose the right hearing specialist D

r. Cherri Hoyden says there is nothing like putting hearing aids on a patient who has lived with a hearing loss for a long time. “That can be very emotional for the patient because all of a sudden they realize what they haven’t been hearing and what they’ve been missing,” said Dr. Hoyden. Hearing loss can be isolating and people with untreated hearing loss often report higher rates of sadness or depression. That’s why Dr. Hoyden enjoys working with patients of all ages to improve their quality of life, and the lives of those around them, through improved hearing at Hearing Specialty Center in Kirkland. An audiologist for 13 years, Dr. Hoyden previously worked for a hospital and decided to start her own practice in Kirkland three years ago because she wanted to offer patients more flexibility with their treatment. At Hearing Specialty Center, Dr. Hoyden does not believe in a one size fits all approach to hearing assessment and rehabilitation, but that there is a best solution for each patient based on their lifestyle and needs.

“We help people of all ages and their needs differ for various reasons,” she said. “Now that I have my own practice, I have the flexibility of spending the amount of time that I feel is appropriate for each patient so that we can achieve a good outcome for every patient.” If you have, or suspect you or a loved one has a hearing loss, Dr. Hoyden recommends finding an audiologist for treatment. She explained that the difference between an audiologist and a hearing aid dispenser is that an audiologist has more in depth training. “Where I have a doctorate degree, a dispenser has a short trade school type training” said Dr. Hoyden, who received her doctorate from Arizona School of Health Sciences. Audiologists are hearing healthcare professionals who hold a Master’s degree or Doctorate in Audiology (the science of hearing), and specialize in hearing evaluations, hearing loss, and the fitting of hearing instruments. Audiologists have undergone extensive training in the anatomy and physiology of the ear and its mechanisms, and have a solid background

every day? Do they live in a single family home? Do they anticipate that changing?” said Dr. Hoyden. “An audiologist needs to take the time to find out the patients’ needs, limitations and financial concerns as well.” Dr. Hoyden also recommends that patients find an audiologist that carries more than just one brand of hearing aids. “There’s not really one best hearing aid. The important thing is to

Five top questions to ask

1

Does your pet’s food label list wholesome main ingredients first, such as chicken, turkey or salmon?

2

Is the company who makes your pet’s food reliable and use only human grade ingredients?

3

Is your dog getting enough exercise to burn calories, avoid boredom and stay healthy?

4

Does your pet supply store offer healthy options for keeping your dogs teeth and gums clean so you can minimize expensive trips to the vet for teeth cleaning?

5

Did you know that cats get most of their moisture intake from their food, and that fresh or canned food can be a healthier option?

Did you know? Experts say that dogs were domesticated between 12,000 and 25,000 years ago—and that all dogs evolved from the wolf. Since then, humans have selectively bred more than 400 breeds, ranging in size from fourpound teacup poodles to Irish wolfhounds, whose three-foot stature earns them the title of tallest canine. But the most popular pooches are non-pedigree—the oneof-a-kind dogs known as mixed-breeds. Cats were domesticated sometime between 4,000 and 8,000 years ago, in Africa and the Middle East. Small wild cats started hanging out where humans stored their grain. When humans saw cats up close and personal, they began to admire felines for their beauty and grace.

How to keep your pet healthy and happy D

ooley’s Dog House owners Chuck and Marti Bartlett know about keeping pets healthy. Just look at the lifespan of their pets. There is Dooley’s resident cat, Phoebe, who recently turned 20, and Marti’s 12-year-old beagle, Dooley, for whom the store was named. There was also Beans, who Chuck got as a gift when the terrier was a puppy. Chuck took Beans to the vet when the pooch was six months old because he hopped like a bunny, Chuck recalled. “Something was wrong and that vet said that I should just put him down,” said Chuck. “He was going to live a short, painful life. He had arthritis and bad joints.” But putting his dog down was not an option for Chuck, so he studied supplements, remedies and nutrition. Beans lived to be almost 18. “Beans taught me how to read a food label and Twelve-year-old Dooley, center, sits with Marti, left, and Chuck Bartlett at the family’s pet shop in Kirkland. he taught me the value Below is Dooley, right, and his sister Hazel. of nutrition and supplements,” said Chuck. “He dog or cat,” said Chuck. tant thing pet owners can izer and paid “more per was just an inspiration to Instead of focusing on do when choosing the pound for steer manure me and our customers.

KIRKLAND SOCCER TEAMS SEARCHING FOR FIRST GOAL OF THE SEASON

t may be his first season as the head coach for the Juanita baseball team, but Sherman Leach knows the players and how things work. The longtime summer baseball coach finally got his shot at helming the Rebels when the job opened up last year. “It’s just that job I’ve always had my eye on,” he said, adding his three kids all attended Juanita, so he’s very familiar with the school. With his experience coaching a summer league team, Leach said he’s coached a lot of the players, not only on his team, but from around the league. Leach also served as an assistant for the Rebels several season ago. “The Juanita guys are a really hard working group,” he said of the Rebels. He said they are competing every day in practice and because the program’s numbers are down this spring, varsity and JV are both getting plenty of experience early on. As with most teams figuring things out, still early in the season, Leach said he’s optimistic about this spring. “Once we’re at 100 percent, we should compete

irkland American Little League kicked off its 2011 season as dozens of teams paraded through downtown Kirkland Saturday. But this was not just any ordinary celebration. This year marks the 60th anniversary of KALL - the oldest Little League in the state of Washington. The event, which drew hundreds of spectators, featured an opening ceremony at the Lee Johnson Field - and a special guest. Ray McMackin, who played shortstop for the Pirates back when KALL was founded in 1951, came from Anacortes to celebrate the anniversary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss this for the world - I had good memories here,â&#x20AC;? McMackin, 72, told the Reporter following the event. Initially, there were only four Major Baseball teams - the Pirates, Tigers, Dodgers and Red Sox with 12 players each ages 10-12. McMacken recalled what it was like to play for KALL in the beginning when he was one of the original 48 players for the teams, along with the late Lee Johnson Jr., owner of Lee Johnson Chevrolet in Kirkland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can remember the faces of all those kids 60 years ago today,â&#x20AC;? said McMackin, looking out
