Council considering $20 car-tab tax as ‘Band-Aid’ for roads Other options include property tax or sales tax increase BY MATT PHELPS mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

T

he winter storm that hit Kirkland last week brought many things to the city – sanding trucks, plows, snow tires and chains, which wreak havoc on the durability of roads. But while many were chaining up on Jan. 17, the Kirkland City Council and city staff were revisiting the idea of creating a Transportation Benefit District (TBD), or car-tab tax, to help main-

tain and improve Kirkland roads and curb a $71 million funding issue during the next decade. Kirkland roads are currently below standard and the city’s main arterials are even worse. City officials use a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) to determine the condition of the roads in Kirkland. On the scale, it is acceptable to have the roads maintain a 70 and ideal is around an 85. Kirkland roads are currently ranked at a 65. It would cost

the city approximately $71 million over the next decade to get all the roads up to, and maintain, a 70. “If you look out about 10 years, which is about what our modeling can do, with existing revenues our road condition index will decline to about 60 overall,” said City of Kirkland Public Works Director Ray Steiger. “… We are growing the backlog and our pavement condition index is dropping.” Steiger said the city has already began implement-

ing some street preservation techniques, including using Slurry Seal to help preserve the pavement. The city has also taken a small amount of the solid waste utility fund to help offset the impact from garbage trucks on the pavement. “A Transportation Benefit District, that would be spent broadly across the city essentially on those projects that are either arterials or collectors, would stabilize our pavement condition index overall,” said Steiger, adding that the index would stay [ more ROADS page 2 ]

curve ‌ I would like to treat the citizens of Kirkland like adults and tell them that if they don’t sign up for this it’s gonna cost more and continue to cost more because $20 is not even going to stop the degradation.� In order to make a dent in road maintenance, city staff has thus far come up with a couple of options to fund the Street Preservation Project. The first option is for the city council to vote to implement a $20 car-tab tax on Kirkland residents. The tax would be implemented on most vehicles and trailers with a license plate, including scooters and motorcycles. Any tax above $20 would have to go to a public vote and could go as high as $100. Asher pointed out during the meeting that there is a bill in Olympia that if passed would give city councils the authority to go as high as $40 without a public vote. Another option is to impose a property tax on Kirkland residents in place of the car-tab tax. Under that proposal, residents with a $500,000 home would have to pay $39 more a year in

taxes for the city to take in the same amount as the $20 car-tab tax. The final option is a .2 percent sales tax increase to reach the same threshold. However, none of the current options would fill the projected $71 million funding gap. The council also received feedback from staff on how outreach efforts went with residents. Steiger told the council that staff reached out to about 250 people during meetings with various neighborhood associations and the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce, and had nearly 90 respondents to a survey that was posted online. “We heard some themes,â€? said Steiger. “The community feels that we need to continue to do good street maintenance ‌ However some felt that maybe we need to prioritize what we already have ‌ They also felt that if there was an increase in revenue it shouldn’t go on forever. There needs to be a sunset and there needs to be some bang for the buck we can show the community.â€? About 55 percent of the people supported the car-tab tax, while most were against the sales tax or property tax increase options. If the council opts for the TBD they have to begin working with the Department of Licensing by the end of April to start receiving revenue in 2013. The council will discuss the issue at the upcoming annual retreat and future council meetings. Deputy Mayor Doreen Marchione wants to know by the retreat what Bellevue and Redmond’s funding mechanisms are like because they have a higher overall PCI and are not running into the same economic issues. Kirkland Mayor Joan McBride recently attended the 40th Annual Economic Forecast Conference The Future of Aerospace in the region presented by enterpriseSeattle. “Every business leader got up and talked about the importance of two things only in order to help our economy right now,â€? said McBride. “Invest in education and invest in our infrastructure.â€?

at 65 PCI. “But what increases significantly is the differed maintenance.â€? What city staff is recommending is that revenues from a TBD be applied to main arterials to bring them up to standards. Steiger added that the arterials in Kirkland are in the worst shape at about a 45 PCI overall. “We would be able to very clearly demonstrate the impact of that revenue, giving the community a very strong accountability of where their money goes,â€? said Steiger. Some council members agreed. “If we are going to put a Band-Aid on let’s put it on the arterials where we will all feel it,â€? said Councilwoman Penny Sweet. But Councilman Dave Asher took issue with just how much of an impact the TBD would actually have on the problem as a whole. “If we do a $20 car tab, at the end of 10 years ‌ there would be only a $3 million difference if we did nothing.

Living in a tent carries a plethora of challenges on a sunny day. Add freezing rain, chilly wind, and an icy layer of snow and most people ditch the thought faster than they can shout, “snow-pocalypse!” However, for the residents of Tent City 4, who moved onto the parking lot of Holy Spirit Lutheran Church in Kirkland on Saturday, the rows of tents are a symbol of security, family, and new beginnings. The homeless community has occupied church property on the Eastside for nearly eight years, and serves as a safe transitional home for those who want to stay off the streets and pursue a more stable life. TC4 resident Eric has lived in the settlement for four months. He moved to Seattle from Texas roughly five months ago after the car he used to drive to work broke down.

he Washington State Supreme Court recently ruled 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 recently convened 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 time frame is bad, but it’s actually worse. The case prompting the Supreme Court ruling was filed in 2007. A coalition of teachers, community groups and school districts, including Lake Washington School District,

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 allow local

school districts to 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.

Houghton Community Council is a costly redundancy I think it is important that I weigh in on the Houghton Community Council discussion. To be clear, I did know that there was going to be a bill forthcoming. My husband, Rep. Larry Springer said as much last session when the original bill was killed and he told Rick Whitney, HCC president, last December. In addition, Larry talked about it at a gathering on Jan. 6 and informed both Councilman Toby Nixon and myself that a bill would be introduced in the next week or so. On Tuesday, I was notified by the city manager that the bill was now out there. When I spoke with Larry that evening he indicated that he had notified both Rob Butcher of Kirkland Views and Rick Whitney, president of the HCC. When I ran for office in 2008, I was asked if I could support the HCC and I said that I didn’t have any objection to supporting an organization that seemed to be an adjunct of the democratic and municipal process. That was before I learned, firsthand, how the process works. After just two years in office I have come to change my opinion. While I have observed and participated in good discussion and exchange with the HCC, and I respect

and appreciate every member of the council, I cannot in good conscience support the concept of this extra layer of bureaucracy. It’s been difficult to pin down the accurate cost of the council (I’ve heard anything from $25,000$75,000 per year) but beyond staff time and meetings, and extended timelines on any planning issues because of it, the fact of the matter is that the HCC has been built into every layer of decision making in our Planning Department. Every landuse issue that the Planning Commission or the Planning Department comes up with is subject to review not only by the City Council, which costs money anyway, but FIRST by the HCC and then again finally by the HCC after the City Council makes its decision. I believe the HCC might have been a good idea at the time it was established and for a period beyond that because it enabled two bodies to grow and develop some trust in how the beginnings of their not so trusting relationship could be helped. Since then, we have had 40 plus years of evolution and opportunity for Houghton to assure that they feel they are “represented” in the same fashion that every other citizen of Kirkland is represented. At this point, I believe the HCC is a costly redundancy. It adds significantly to the cost of doing government and that cost is not borne by the 6,000

or so it represents, but by the full 81,000 Kirkland residents. It is past its time. Like so many agreements and laws and “promises” in our history it is time to move on. Times do change. Perhaps, as some suggest, if I lived in Houghton I might like having the HCC and be among those who feel so strongly about keeping it. I don’t think so. I believe that the HCC, given the expense and redundancy, is not a practice of good, efficient government. I believe strongly that all the citizens of Kirkland should enjoy equal representation.

Penny Sweet, Kirkland Councilwoman

Houghton Community Council is worth keeping What Councilwoman Penny Sweet said about one neighborhood – or area – should not have more input or influence than another is true; however, she and her political allies, including her husband, do not practice what they preach. Whether it was Doris Cooper, Nona Gantz, Sants Contreras, and now Toby Nixon and Penny Sweet – they all treat their neighborhoods differently and it comes at the expense of a reduced quality of life and tax burdens of the other neighborhoods. Because neighborhoods are not

treated the same, neighborhood organizations have been formed to protect their interest. Such is the case of the Houghton Community Council. In 1968, Houghton became part of Kirkland. It was an agreement the City of Kirkland wanted because without it, Houghton would have stayed Houghton. Houghton protected their interest. We’ve seen what happened to the Lakeview and Central Houghton neighborhoods. Their desires were flagrantly ignored. At their community meetings, staff listened, but rubber stamped what the city wanted, not what the neighborhoods wanted. The meetings were a political ploy to give the public the appearance of fairness exploiting the theme of our City Council cares. They did not. The council failed to protect existing quality of life in those neighborhoods and now the city wants to treat every neighborhood the same with the same potential for failures regarding quality of life and taxation. If the HCC is removed, so goes the neighborhood. As referred to in other comments about the HCC, it’s been called outof-date and hasn’t kept up with the times. It’s legislation worth keeping. Our Constitution is old but not out of date. At least it protects what we have.

Banning all cell phone use while driving may not be the answer. Cell phone use is addictive and is perceived by many as safe, especially when it is done hands-free. Addictive behavior is difficult to stop even when it is illegal. In states where cell phone use is now banned there is evidence that many accidents are caused by drivers trying to hide their phones while using them. One of the things to consider is that Americans don’t obey laws if they think the law is unfair, feel they won’t be caught, can afford the fine, or can get out of being convicted because they have a good lawyer. People flaunt the cell-phone law that is currently in effect because they mistakenly

seconds before you can bring your car to a stop. I fully support a ban on texting while driving but I wonder if the law will actually keep a teen from overcoming the urge to look at his phone when it buzzes. Adults in Washington aren’t setting a good example by ignoring the “hands free only” law now in effect. I am one of the few people I know who doesn’t own a cell phone and I know I am a better driver because of it. Common sense should be a greater motivator than the fear of a penalty. If you can’t ignore the ringing or buzzing of your phone while driving, then turn it off or leave it at home!

t International Community School, most seniors are encouraged to insert a free period into their class schedule, because with so much on our plate, five classes worth of homework rather than six really does make a difference. The possibilities that come with a free period are endless, but instead of using the extra 55 minutes to study like a model student should, I have come up with a more exciting use of my extra time. As the school bell marks the ending of my AP Literature’s fascinating class discussion on “Pride and Prejudice,” no student zips out of the classroom faster than I do. The hallways are a crowded, cramped, and stressful place at my school and much like a wildebeest herd, students push through each other, desperate to get to their next assigned location. With six years of experience navigating my schools halls, I weave through short in stature seventh graders towing rolly-backpacks behind them, and imitating a car, mutter the occasional “beep beep” when underclassmen think it’s acceptable to group in the middle of the hallways and discuss the happenings of last class. But finally, I make it out the door into the parking lot and briskly walk to my car. I then take the seven minute journey from the school to my house, stopping right in front of my mailbox. Putting my car into brake, I wait as my window sheaths itself; “Oh why can’t it go any faster,” I think to myself until finally, all that separates me from the contents of my mailbox is its aluminum door.

Ban on cell phones useless

believe they are safe doing so and the chance of getting caught is so slim. You can’t ban everything that is a distraction — we have all seen people eating a burger, putting on make-up, programming a GPS, or turning around to check on a toddler sitting in the back seat. It often isn’t the distraction that is truly the cause of the accident but rather the fact that a driver may be following the vehicle in front of him too closely. How often do you see a line of cars traveling at 60 miles per hour with only two car lengths between them? Whether a driver is distracted or not, if the vehicle in front of him slows suddenly, he will not be able to stop his vehicle in time to avoid a crash. According to studies, the “thinking, reacting, stopping” distance of an alert driver is at least 240 feet. It takes about 3.5

He takes the bus into Seattle every day, and receives aid for school supplies and transportation. Joe is the TC4 Move Master. He helps organize the transition from one church to the next, a job to which the 100 or so TC4 residents elected him during a weekly camp meeting. This is his third year with

www.kirklandreporter.com Tent City. He hopes to move on soon, and describes the camp as a place for people to get on their feet. “About a quarter of the people here have daily jobs, and another quarter are labor ready, so they go to work sources where they might get work for a day,� he said. The desire for a fresh start in life was visible Saturday morning as residents and volunteers energetically scraped snow from ground zero of their new settlement. The new location in

Kirkland is ideal because there is easy access to grocery stores, though Joe prefers the scenery in Issaquah to that in Kirkland. TC4 changes locations every 90 days, and last occupied the Community Church of Issaquah. This is the third time they have camped at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church. They plan to stay until April 2012. Volunteers from the church and surrounding neighborhoods helped assemble the camp. They set

wooden crates on the ground to keep moisture off the floor of the tents, banded the tents together, and hooked up water utilities, such as the washing machine. “This is what we do. It’s our mission,� said Mary-Alyce Burleigh, Council president of Holy Spirit Lutheran Church. “It’s a benefit to ourselves because these folks have wisdom to share.� Burleigh said that neighbors have become very accepting of Tent City’s presence.

“After the first time, people understand it’s no big deal,� she said. “In fact, it’s safer with Tent City here because there are more eyes on the community. They screen the Tent City members, and that’s more than you can say for the neighbor who moved into the home next door.�

Community Council debate back in Olympia BY CARRIE WOOD cwood@kirklandreporter.com

The debate of whether or not the nearly 50-year-old Houghton Community Council should cease to exist is back in Olympia. House Bill 2610, which aims to end the HCC and the East Bellevue Community Council, was introduced in the Legislature on Jan. 18. Kirkland and Bellevue have the only two community councils in the state. But unlike last year’s contested HB 1812, the new bill would not require a citywide vote to end the municipal corporations. “As I thought more about it and talked to people in Houghton, that (the citywide vote) was a bit of a contrivance,� said 45th District Rep. Larry Springer, who is

sponsoring the bill, along with 45th District Rep. Roger Goodman and 48th District Rep. Deb Eddy. Other bill sponsors include Reps. Derek Stanford, D-Bothell, Luis Moscoso, D-Mountlake Terrace, and Ruth Kagi, D-Lake Forest Park. “The difference is this year’s bill says when HCC’s current term expires, they are simply disbanded. So there wouldn’t be a vote, they would just cease to exist – period.� The community councils’ terms would expire on Dec. 31, 2013. Springer added a citywide vote would be contrary to the HCC statute that currently exists and believes that eliminating the vote is a “more honest way of approaching it now.� He also said he doesn’t want to put cities through the expense of a vote.

And saving cities money is one of the main reasons why he is sponsoring the bill. “Part of the rationale behind this was the same as last year, we the Legislature are tasked with coming up with a number of suggestions to reduce the burden on local governments by giving them more revenue flexibility or by reducing the number of things they have to do to lessen their costs,� said Springer. “We are looking at a number of ways of streamlining government and getting rid of a number of afflictive functions and this falls in that category.� The HCC’s total estimated expenses cost the city nearly $70,000 a year, according to a Finance Committee meeting report on Oct. 26, 2010.

here are many worthy animal nonprofits to consider for donations. Some charities worth considering are local and others national or international. Do your homework. A charity should make it easy for donors and potential donors to review the budget. Depending on how much money a nonprofit takes in they may be required to file specific forms with the IRS. These forms such as Form 990 are open to the public. Form 990 gives a breakdown of revenue, expenses and service accomplishments. Ask to see Form 990 and analyze it to ensure you are comfortable with the charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operations. Some private charities are not required to file Form 990s and do not have to provide a copy of their IRS tax filings to the public upon request. You will have to do other research on these organizations. Find out if the charity is audited yearly by a reputable accounting firm and ask for the latest report from an independent certified public accountant. Although most charities abide by strict standards and ethics with finances, unfortunately some nonprofits may misrepresent how funds are used when presenting financial records. Are the board of directors active or passive. Are staff and volunteers respected and heard and is the charity actu-

...young at heart To move or not to move a parent with dementia

Discover true warmth and vitality in assisted living. Madison House is a distinctive, family-owned community offering expert care services, including:   

Space is limited. To reserve a place in LWITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dental Sealant Day, please call the LWIT dental clinic at 425739-8130. LWITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dental Clinic offers low-cost dental treatments to the general public. To see a list of procedures and costs, please visit the website at www.lwtech.edu/ dentalclinic.

Many families often question themselves about when is the right time to move a parent suffering from dementia (Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Lewy Body, Frontal Lobe or other). There are many factors to take into consideration: Reason No 1: I will wait until mom gets worse to make a move. Many families hope their parents will never get worse, or wait from a directive from their primary care physician or the hospital (if a crisis happened before). Here is a reason why waiting is not always the best scenario: Yes, a move may affect

momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory but it will allow her to enjoy the benefits of assisted living (companionship, activities, brain stimulation, good nutrition, nursing supervision) while she still can. It will also make her transition better if in the future she needs to move to the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory care because: t.PNNBZ now know the staff and be less reluctant to receive care. t.PNXJMMIBWFB structured routine that will minimize her fears. She will also have more of a feeling of companionship rather than abandonment.

t.PNXJMMIBWFCZUIFO some familiar faces and friends who will be transitioning with her. t.PTUTFDVSFENFNPSZ cares have a wait list and allow the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own residents placement before a new resident. Reason No. 2: Mom wants to stay home. If financially, your family is able to provide in-home care, this may be an option. However, six out of 10 people suffering from dementia will wander out of their homes. What will happen if mom leaves the home in the middle of the night? Providing yourself with peace of mind is as important as providing mom with the

best care. Home care can become expensive (on average if you are paying for seven hours or more of in-home care, you could have mom in an assisted living with all the care provided and supervision 24/7), and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide the interaction and stimulation a retirement community could provide. Short term stays are a great way for seniors to â&#x20AC;&#x153;tryâ&#x20AC;? a community and realize that in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era, a senior community is more like a cruise ship rather than the old style nursing homes. Reason No. 3: Mom canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it. There are several ways to pay for assisted living and memory care communities: was your parent in the military and may she/he qualify for a VA Aid and Attendance Benefit of up to $1,600 per month? Does she/he have a Long Term Care Insurance? A few communities may also offer to convert to Medicaid, but be careful when this promise is made. Recently I heard a family was promised to convert to Medicaid if their mom did a private pay stay at their community for a minimum of two years. The senior has been there over a year and now the community was sold to a different ownership group who has no intention to convert to Medicaid. Not only should this type of promise be in writing, but you must also investigate the stability of the group you are choosing to provide care for your loved one.

Following their 2009-11 blockbuster performances attended by thousands in Seattle’s Pike Place Market, Kirkland’s favorite Beatles cover band, Crème Tangerine, will once again climb up on the rooftop balcony of the Copacabana Cafe to celebrate the anniversary of The Beatles last performance famously known as “The Rooftop Concert.” In what has become an annual tradition in Seattle, Crème Tangerine will perform songs from that concert, as well as the rock masterpiece “Abbey Road,” and more at noon on Friday, Jan. 27 on the rooftop balcony of the Copacabana Café in the Pike Place Market (1520 ½ Pike Place) in Seattle. This location was voted “Best Rooftop Balcony in Seattle” by Seattle Weekly readers for 2008-09. The concert by Crème Tangerine will take place on the last Friday of January at noon – the same day/time historically The Beatles last performance took place on the rooftop of Apple Records in London in 1969. This year Crème Tangerine is honored to feature special guests that include Rock n Roll Hall of Famer Don Wilson of the Ventures, Roger Fisher from Heart, and Alan White of Yes. Considered a rock legend, Alan White was also the drummer for John Lennon on the album ” Imagine,” as well as George Harrison on the album “All Things Must Pass.” “It’s been so cool these past few years to see the streets of Pike Place Market packed shoulder to shoulder with people celebrating the music of the Beatles on the last Friday of January – this music truly is a common bond people share together,” said Dan Grant, lead singer of Crème Tangerine. “We look forward to this year’s show to be our best ever! We’re going to perform this fun event for free in Seattle to give people a reason to take a moment and have a little fun on winter lunchtime! We hope people will come out and enjoy it all!”

CLASSIFICATIONS FOR NEXT TWO YEARS The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association released the final classification after the WIAA executive board met earlier this week to finalize the numbers. The classifications will remain until the 2014 school year. Schools with 513 to 1085 students were in the 2A classifications, while schools with between 1086 and 1303 were grouped as 3A. All schools with more than 1304 students will compete in 4A. Juanita High School was the second to smallest 3A school with 1096.27 students. Only Shorecrest was smaller with 1096.16 students. The decimal points come from the FTE (full time equivalent) counting, which breaks down hours students are at school, so numbers accurately reflect running start and part time students. Lake Washington will compete for the next two school years as 2A with 1064.91 students. The school dropped from 4A to 3A in the previously reclassification.

lot of kids dream of playing sports in college. It can be a big goal, especially when the sport isn’t offered by every school out there. Four girls who play national level tennis with a club in Kirkland all achieved that goal, and will play at Division I universities next fall. The four friends will be at different schools spread across the U.S. next year, but their years playing together built a solid foundation of what to expect in the next step.

When a little boy asked what was going through her mind during that famous second vault, she answered, not much. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really I was on auto pilot,â&#x20AC;? she said. She explained that after so much training and going over everything in her head millions of times, she simply visualized and went. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I visualized the vault in my head, so not too much was going on,â&#x20AC;? said Strug. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over think things and it took a really long time to get there.â&#x20AC;? Even though she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a competitive gymnast for years, Strug said it was extremely hard to give up the gym. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really was,â&#x20AC;? she said

[ STRUG from page 1] â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels good to have had a lasting effect on the sport,â&#x20AC;? she said of her warm reception, despite the crowdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young age. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technology has really assisted me with that.â&#x20AC;? Strug, in town to promote the Pacific Rim gymnastics competition that will be held in Everett in March, also presented at the Sports Star of the Year event held in Seattle on Wednesday night. Her main message to the children in the audience - find something you love and go for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important to find something you have a passion for, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing a musical instrument or another sport and enjoy it. Set some kind of achievement and work really hard to obtain it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the message I like to tell them.â&#x20AC;? Strug, who retired from the sport not long after the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;96 Olympics, said while she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend much time in the gym anymore - especially now that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expecting her first child she likes to talk to people

about it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here to get all of you excited about the Pacific Rim championships,â&#x20AC;? she told the crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty awesome event because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an Olympic year and a lot of them will be there. Who knows what is going to happen.â&#x20AC;? Strug told the group, largely younger gymnasts eagerly listening to the Olympian, that even though not everybody will go to the Olympics, everyone can participate and get the benefits of gymnastics.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those that work hard are the ones who get the benefits,â&#x20AC;? she told them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until I went through the process it really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t
