oung musicians have many hurdles in pursuing their passion. A lack of access to good instruments, recording equipment, transportation, a place to practice and finding likeminded individuals of the same age can be frustrating. But aspiring teens and tweens may find some answers in an unusual place - Northwest University (NWU) in Kirkland.

The Christian college will host its first venture into teaching the arts of jamming, overdubbing and getting over stage fright with a new eightweek program called URock starting Jan. 11. “I’ve been thinking for a few years about what music can do for people, especially with leadership issues,” said Northwest University’s Jeff Lockhart, who is the executive director of the Creatio Institute, which encompasses the URock program at NWU. “It teaches personal commitment, accountability and other skills [ more UROCK page 2 ]

City manager could receive nearly $30,000 for moving expenses Triplett could move from Seattle to city-owned home in Juanita BY MATT PHELPS mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

The City of Kirkland, like most municipalities, has dealt with the economic downturn by slashing its budget. But the housing market is now catching up with the city. The Kirkland City Council approved a provision agreed to last June to give new City Manager Kurt Triplett up to $29,000

[ UROCK from page 1] that everyone needs to survive in the business world. When you’re in a band you also have to learn how to compromise, share and listen to others. It is the dynamic of life.” The program is designed to teach teens and tweens life skills along with the skills to become a good musician. Lockhart, who is also a NWU grad and the drummer for Beatles cover band Creme Tangerine, gave up his position as assistant vice president for development at NWU to become executive director of Creatio Institute. “They have been really supportive,” said Lockhart about the University. “It has

www.kirklandreporter.com been great to wake up every day and do what I love.” Even though he had great support getting the program off the ground, Lockhart said the launch was not entirely easy. “We had issues with funding and infrastructure like any new program,” said Lockhart, who has been playing drums professionally for 30 years. “We went out and found people who are good with kids and are good musicians. But we wrote all the curriculum.” The staff of URock is an impressive list including Lockhart, “Daphne loves Derby” band member David Sparks; Bernadette Bascom, who was one of the first musicians signed to Stevie Wonder’s label; Samuel Mathews,

who played drums with Quincy Jones; and Grammy award-winning Steve Smith, who is the program’s creative director. “Having a guy with two Grammies is pretty cool,” said Lockhart. The URock program originated at Northshore Baptist Church in Bothell, but URock, as run by NWU, held a trial run last summer to rave reviews from students. “I am glad that the community is willing to put on programs to organize kids into bands because it is something that we all enjoy,” said Kirkland resident, 16-yearold Colter Potter, who took the program last summer. Potter met some friends through URock and started the band “Studio 6,” after their rehearsal space in the program.

Drew Mattocks, 17, of Bothell was a part of last summer’s URock program where he helped to form the band “Studio 6.” CARRIE WOOD, Kirkland Reporter “We kind of function as a band when we need to,” said Potter, who plays the drums. “We don’t actively practice because we are all so busy, but I stay in contact with those guys.” Last summer was the second time the band took the URock program and they plan to take it again this summer. “It is fun to see how far they have progressed in their musical abilities,” said Potter. The session last summer catered to 75 students, broken into 13 different bands. “We had kids with very little experience all the way up to kids who had played in bands before and everywhere in between,” said Lockhart. “But to see the kids blossom like that was really fun.” During the program, the students get to play and record on top-of-the-line

equipment, receive a halfhour private lesson from an instructor each week and receive peer mentoring. NWU has six rehearsal/recording rooms where the kids jam and practice two cover songs and write an original. “It is definitely cool,” said Potter about the equipment. “It is something that us, as teens, don’t have access to and it makes it a lot more fun.” All three songs are recorded and then the bands put on a concert at the Hardrock Cafe in downtown Seattle. “We treat the kids with respect and give them room to make mistakes,” said Lockhart. “The results blew me away.” Lockhart has learned a lot from his students: “Sometimes we tend to over complicate things. You have to keep it simple and have fun. It is nice to forget the pressure of

the business.” But there was a bit of a generational gap between the teachers and musicians and not in the way that most might think. Lockhart said that when he was growing up, musicians identified with a specific genre and rarely deviated from that. But kids today don’t see dividing lines in music. “Sometimes there was a generational gap because we (the students) grew up listening to different music,” said Potter. “We would decide to jam on something dissonant and they (the teachers) would say, ‘okay how can we make that better?’ and we would all think it sounded really good.” Potter keeps coming back for many reasons, including the fact that the program fills many of the basic musical needs of a teenager. But the program cannot provide everything, as Potter is still waiting for his driver’s license. He said he will find a way to get there. “As long as the program is being held I want to go back,” said Potter, who plans to attend again this summer. “It is a good chance to get together.”

www.kirklandreporter.com [ MOVING from page 1] ment, everyone is aware of the housing market,” said McBride. “It is a financial difficulty for a lot of people.” Triplett is currently in an unspecified grace period that allows for the sale of the home and his move to Kirkland. With small kids in school, Triplett said he didn’t want to put his house up for sale until he knew he had a place to move to in Kirkland. Triplett’s goal was to buy a house in Kirkland contingent on selling his Seattle-area home. “Unfortunately in this market people aren’t willing to take that risk,” said Triplett. “The agreement with the Council provides me a temporary home in Kirk-

land so that we can sell our house and then buy one in Kirkland.” McBride said that there was talk of suspending the city-residency requirement at the time of the contract negotiations but the idea was eventually dropped. “What we tried to do was come up with a pragmatic option and I appreciate the council’s cooperation,” said Triplett, whose wife is a part-time real estate agent. “Both the council and I were concerned about the budget implications.” The Kirkland City Council enacted the amendment to Triplett’s employment agreement to provide housing assistance of up to $1,995 a month to establish residency within the city limits. That

monthly stipend is good for up to one year and counts as taxable income for Triplett in addition to his $174,000 per year salary. The amendment also allows the city manager and his family to rent a city-owned home at the current market rate and afford Triplett a one-time moving expense of $5,000. “Both the council and I want me to be in Kirkland,” said Triplett. “I like the job and want to be here. My family wants to be here.” The agreement states that a city-owned home at the address of 10824 N.E. 116th Street in the current South Juanita neighborhood near MacAuliffe Park, is available to the city manager at the rate offered. The home is not

January 7, 2011

available until June 1, 2011. Triplett pointed out that most executive city employees are afforded some sort of stipend to move to the city they work in. Triplett is in an unusual situation as these types of moving expenses are more typical for new employees moving from further

away. He was quick to point out that a new Issaquah city administrator in the same position was recently given $15,000. The amendment also states that after the one-year period the city manager must pay the rental expenses out of his

[3]

own pocket with no supplemental housing expense provided by the city. At the time of his hire there was some public outcry at Triplett’s salary. Kirkland Reporter research showed that his salary reflected market value for the city’s size in the Puget Sound area.

EMS fees approved by council BY MATT PHELPS mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

The Kirkland City Council approved Emergency Transport Fees to be billed directly to health insurers, during Tuesday’s council meeting. Medical insurance companies cover medical transport cost as a part of premiums, so those with insurance would not pay

out-of-pocket for the service. The City of Kirkland had paid for the service out of the general fund. The user fee is set at $600 plus $14 per mile. The fees will take effect on Feb. 28. The issue was first brought to the council early last year as a costcutting measure. The firm that conducted a third-party study on the subject last spring,

Management Partners Inc., assessed that the change would have a net revenue of about $1 million for the city. The study used six peer cities comparable to Kirkland, some that implemented the user fee and some that did not. The study and the subsequent cost-savings estimate did not include the annexation area (the fee will apply to that area).

EDITOR’S NOTE

Question of the week:

oing through issue after issue of old Eastside Journal newspapers on microfiche at the Bellevue Library recently, it was refreshing to see how vibrant the Totem Lake Malls were when they broke ground in 1973. Several newspaper advertisements boasted the area’s first climate-controlled malls. Scores of people came to shop when the Totem Lake Malls opened and described the malls as an essential place on the growing Eastside. Today, the malls are underperforming. An economic downturn, lawsuit and delayed funding have contributed to what we see as the Totem Lake Malls now – a sleeping giant, as some city officials describe the site. In an effort to learn more about the malls, the Reporter sat down with city officials, neighborhood leaders, historians, business owners, developers and more. I am excited to announce that starting next week, we will launch a five-part series on the Totem Lake Malls. We will provide readers a comprehensive look at what the malls were in the ‘70s, what they are now and what the site has the potential to become. Please look for part one of the series next week

in the Jan. 14 issue that will examine the history of the malls. Part one will take you through how the Totem Lake Malls came about, the first stores in the malls, some resident’s recollections of what it was like to shop there and the history of the surrounding lake. Each week, we will offer a new part to the series. We will examine the current state of the malls, the economic impact, who owners DDR/ Coventry are and what the lawsuit is about. The series will explain why the malls are dormant and what the city is currently doing to address these issues. But we need your help to inspire the final part of the series. As you read through the series, please think about what you would like to see

at the Totem Lake Malls, how you would like to see it redeveloped and give us your feedback by e-mailing: letters@kirklandreporter.com. Readers will also have the opportunity to inform the final part of the Totem Lake Malls series as we will also launch our next Kirkland Conversations piece in conjunction with the the first series next week. Next week’s Kirkland Coversations is: “Totem Lake: The Sleeping Giant.” Please form your discussion groups, talk about the issues and fill out and return the corresponding questions to the Reporter. We will share your answers with city leaders and include many of them in part five of our Totem Lake Malls series: The future of the malls. We look forward to your responses!

As we begin the new year, I found myself thinking about the events of the last year and the unanswered questions that occurred as a result: Why did the Kirkland Council overrule the people by pushing through the annexation when the votes were not there to support it? Why did we hire a city manager at almost $200,000 when the city is already in debt up to its eyeballs? Why did the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) vote to change from a K-6, 7-9 and 10-12 system to a K-5, 6-8 and 9-12 system even though the people clearly voted against it? If the reason for this change is to address overcrowded schools then why are you delaying the rebuilding of Juanita High so that the STEM school can be built first? Why choose STEM, which serves only certain students, instead of Juanita, which serves the whole community? How will STEM help to resolve this and why is it a better choice than rebuilding Juanita? Why was the impact to the children

not considered since it affects everything from elementary band to 6th grade graduation to 9th grade cruises? Why do we have to pay for garbage pickup when it snows and the trucks don’t arrive? Why are garbage trucks not required to come back sooner, rather than wait until the next cycle? Why can’t we do something about Totem Lake Mall, which is now basically a home for discount furniture and flea markets? Why can’t we replace the whole thing with a WalMart Supercenter? Why do all close elections always end up being won by the Democrats? Why have we been forced into mailonly ballots, which leave many of us doubting our votes were counted? Why is everyone afraid to use the word Christmas – after all it is a national holiday regardless of whether or not you accept the religious aspects? Why is it so important for Kirkland to grow that they annexed a population of people that allowed them to double their size. Do locals really want to become like Bellevue? When will we get someone on the city council that will listen to the people?

Tom Ellis, Juanita

Response to LWSD letter on school modernization Kathryn Reith’s recent letter to the Reporter attacking my criticism of the LWSD school replacement (modernization) program is littered with inaccurate data presented as facts. She asserts that the state recommends building a new building if remodeling would cost 40 percent more than the cost of a new building. The fact is that state regulations (WACs) prevent them from even becoming involved in a remodeling project until costs exceed 40 percent of a new building (WAC 392-347-035). She goes on to claim that the district threshold of 80 percent for building new instead of remodeling is twice that of the state. In fact, the state will match the cost of remodeling up to 100 percent of new construction (WAC-392-347-040). The district threshold to build new is 20 percent lower. Ms. Reith incorrectly states that I assume that the district could have

saved millions of dollars by not building any new buildings. I actually asserted that hundreds of millions of extra dollars were spent to replace 21 relatively new and otherwise substantially sound buildings than if their useful life had instead been extended for decades by remodeling. She offers no evidence to refute my statement, but proclaims that she will post information on the district Web site. The district claims that it needs to build a new STEM school and permanent additions to high schools in Redmond and Sammamish to alleviate a housing shortage. Ms. Reith confirms that the district has the money to do so without running a $64.5 million dollar levy in February. The district intends to use that money to continue their building replacement policy for eight more schools. She implies that since seven of the schools are in Kirkland, it would be wrong to spend that money on Redmond and Sammamish schools. Is our district spokesperson suggesting that Kirkland voters should oppose the levy because it’s for building Redmond and Sammamish schools?

[ SPRING from page 9] ment relations at the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce. According to FORBES, the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue area is the second-most optimistic metropolitan area in the country, with a 15 percent net employment outlook! The Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce issued its own jobs sector survey; 1,200 employers were polled, and the results were upbeat. Fifty-six percent of King County employers anticipated that business would be better in 2011, and 41 percent expected to hire more. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been waiting to get closer to warmer weather before beginning the search to buy your first home, you may want to start now with a game plan. The traditionally busy spring real estate season is just around the corner, meaning competition looms, even in a market like we have today. There are things you can do as a potential homebuyer to get a head start. So with that in mind, the competition to buy may be tougher than the average buyer thinks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already gaining momentum in some neighborhoods. There are some things you can do to improve your chances of landing in a home, including: t(FUBDPQZPGZPVSDSFEJUSFQPSU1PUFOUJBMMFOEFSTXJMMWJFX your credit history - how much debt youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accrued, how many accounts you have open, whether your payments are made on time, etc. - to determine whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give you a loan.

Owning A Home Can Pay Dividends (NAPSI)-There are many good reasons to become a homeowner. In addition to the social benefits, the feeling of autonomy and sense of community investment, there are the tax benefits. One major tax benefit is the NPSUHBHFJOUFSFTUEFEVDUJPO .*% Ä&#x2021;  F.*%IBTCFFO part of the federal tax code since 1913 and helps families offset the cost of homeownership. The ability to deduct the interest paid on a mortgage can translate into significant savings come tax time. For example, a family who bought a home this year with a $200,000, 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage, assuming an interest rate of 4.5 percent, could save nearly $3,500 in federal taxes when they file next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market, eight out of 10 home buyers must CPSSPXNPOFZUPCVZBIPNF wTBJE/BUJPOBM"TTPDJB UJPOPG3FBMUPSTÂĽDIJFGFDPOPNJTU -BXSFODF:VOi'PS aspiring homeowners who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings to buy a home outright, tax benefits like the mortgage interest deduction help them begin building their future through homeownership.â&#x20AC;? Of the taxpayers who itemize deductions, 80 percent utilize this benefit. This is true for people of all income levels.

BUSINESS AND FINANCE Using insider trading to your advantage of the game that they can predict with reasonable accuracy what pitch is coming next based on how the pitcher is gripping the ball, what the point of release is, and any other number of tiny mannerisms. They recognize these “tells” and, in doing so, are able to increase their odds of success dramatically. These “tells” can be viewed as a parallel to an important step in investing - monitoring legal insider trading. Monitoring doesn’t do it justice though – you can monitor all day long, but if you don’t know what to look for, you will remain lost both at the plate and in the market. So, how can investors not only observe but learn to spot the tells? John Klevens

dramatically increases his holdings on a percentage basis, they are really telling the market that they see value in their own company and are willing to show it by investing their own disposable assets in the company for whom they work. On the other hand, an insider might be selling for a variety of reasons. They may be paying for a large purchase, such as a house or college tuition. They may be prudently diversifying their financial portfolio. But, at the end of the day, a corporate insider buys his own company’s stock because he believes it will be trading higher at some point.

...todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parent working with a large group of children. Even with all of her experience in theater and with children, Sharples was still very impressed with the Rose Hill students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids have just been awesome,â&#x20AC;? she said. She said the difficulties have come from the erratic rehearsal schedule theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had since the beginning. Rehearsals, which have been four days a week for three hours, began in November. But there have been holidays, snow closures and winter break between then and now. The students also did not rehearse on a stage until they returned from winter break. Despite these less-thanideal circumstances, Sharples believes the students will still put on a great show.

CHAD COLEMAN, Kirkland Reporter member and parent volunteer for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Pan,â&#x20AC;? said her daughter is not the only student to participate in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production multiple times as the annual show has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very high return rate.â&#x20AC;? She said of the 35 students involved in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Pan,â&#x20AC;? only three are boys â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one sixth-grader and two fourthgraders â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why.

she could do a singing part with her choir experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year I thought it was really fun and I really liked having the audience applaud for everyone,â&#x20AC;? the 12-year-old said. Her favorite part about being part of the productions has been learning choreography for the musical numbers because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;fun yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of challenging.â&#x20AC;? The most difficult part is dealing with nerves. She said in the past, she would get a weird feeling before going on stage and worry about forgetting her lines. But after the first show, that anxiety goes away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you do a good job on the first play, then you know you got it nailed for the second one,â&#x20AC;? Alessa said. Alessaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother Pam Arimoto, a Rose Hill PTSA

for them to do the play but the rest of the funds go to the school PTSA,â&#x20AC;? said Arlene Kettering, a parent volunteer and the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s producer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a really big fund raiser. Mostly we shoot to break even on the whole deal. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping this year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make enough money to offer some partial scholarships for the play next year.â&#x20AC;? Auditions are held to determine who will play which part. While she has directed in the past, this will be Sharplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first time working on a production with Studio East. Also, as a certified teacher, this is not her first time

For its 12th annual stage production, Rose Hill Elementary School is taking the classic story about the boy who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grow up and giving it a comedic and musical twist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Pan in Neverlandâ&#x20AC;? features 35 fourth- through sixth-graders and is a not-sotraditional retelling of James M. Barrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Grow Up.â&#x20AC;? The musical, a collaborative effort with Studio East in Kirkland, will be showing at 7 p.m. Jan. 7-8 at Rose Hill Junior High School, 13505 N.E. 75th St. in Redmond. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for children and seniors. The script, which is similar to the Disney classic many people are familiar with, was provided by Studio East, with musical direction by Dan Shelhamer. Studio East is also providing costumes and props. Parent volunteers are in charge of building the set. This is sixth-grader Alessa Arimotoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second time in a Rose Hill Elementary production, her first year being last year in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Around the World in 80 Hours.â&#x20AC;? In this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing a pirate. Alessa was part of the Seattle Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Choir before â&#x20AC;&#x153;Around the Worldâ&#x20AC;? and said she auditioned for the production because she thought

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the dynamic is,â&#x20AC;? Arimoto said. Despite their small number, the boys in the musical are not intimidated by being surrounded by mostly female co-stars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Panâ&#x20AC;? director Walayn Sharples said the boys donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily stick together either. Sharples, who is also an actress, became involved with the show after auditioning for Studio Eastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s StoryBook Theater, a program started to introduce young audiences to live musical theater. She had received a callback for January, but was also invited to direct â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Pan,â&#x20AC;? which is part of Studio Eastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ArtReach!, a six-week school residency program for up to 50 students to put on a musical production. This gives schools the opportunity to have a drama program and students a glimpse into theater. Because students pay to participate, anyone who auditions is automatically in the production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We pay Studio East a certain amount

Washing your hands often protects you from both colds and flu. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue if you sneeze or cough and teach your children to do the same. No tissue?

If you have any questions about your cold or flu symptoms or any other health questions, call the Evergreen Healthline at 425-899-3000 or go to www.evergreenhospital.org.

Patience is a virtue â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Your Best Body Challengeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; H ave you ever attended a Pilates class and said afterwards, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel a thingâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the point?â&#x20AC;? Most people want the burn or the heart-pounding-Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m-gonnadie workout. If people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the burn right away, they quickly move on and never return to take another Pilates class. (And what a shame that is.) What they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize is that, without a doubt, Pilates can make your heart leap out of your chest! The key: You have to learn to use the smaller muscles, not just the larger ones! If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re constantly moving from your larger muscle groups, you will feel nothing. Everything will seem easy, disconnected, and boring. Your

musculature will never change, and you will most likely overdevelop those larger muscle groups, possibly leading to an injury or chronic pain. What I know for sure and have experienced in my own body is, you have to change your movement patterns - period! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Pilates gives you in the beginning. You have to be patient with this form of exercise until you learn to move efficiently, which means using all the muscle groups, and not only the larger ones. Once you learn the fundamentals and your body restructures or rewires its movement patterns, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get that heart-poundinglike-no-other feeling. (Just you wait and see! In Pilates, we call it an internal shower, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Juanita held the lead at the half 23-19 and going into the fourth quarter with a 40-36 gap between the teams, but Lynnwood edged closer in the final minutes. The Rebels stayed strong to earn the victory in the last game before the holidays. Kellen Gildersleeve had 18 points in the game, with teammate Ryan Reid adding 10 to the total.

ucked back into an industrial park next to a Postal Express delivery hub, there is now a haven for badminton players. The Seattle Badminton Club opened the doors to it’s newest facility on Dec. 3, welcoming any and all who enjoy the sport. The club has operated gym space in southern Bellevue for about five years, said one of the club founders Tony Lee. Avid players and the club quickly found the need for another space, especially farther north to serve the people there who love the game. The new facility, located at 10858 117th Place N.E., had 10 courts and an office area for the staff. “It’s a perfectly, ideal location,” said Lee. The coach at the club, Wendy Carter, said it was purely good luck to have found a space with so much space. Lee said one of the complaints about the Bellevue location was there simply wasn’t a lot of room except for the courts. The Kirkland space alleviates both the need for space and a closer venue for northern players. Lee said most of the founders have decades of experience and have quickly found the older generation love showing and teaching the game to kids. Since the club opened at the beginning of December, 111 people have signed up. To celebrate the grand opening the club will be holding a grand opening

Over the winter break the Lake Washington boys team traveled to California to play in the ESPN Holiday Prep Classic in La Costa. In four games the team finished with a 2-2 record.

of choice, second only to soccer in some places. Introducing the sport to a younger audience is a key goal for the organization. “I love to see that glow that people get when they discover the sport,” said Carter. For the kids who are just learning, they may be shy when they start, but quickly find confidence in their game and themselves. “It’s a big family sport,” said Lee. “Lots of parents teach their kids and pass it on to their kids and you can see the passion they have for it.” Someday the group hopes to possibly have leagues for teams and players, but for the moment the focus is on building the club and teaching the sport. “We’ve found some people like tournaments, and others just want to come and play,” said Carter. “We want to have something for everyone.” While the building is only staffed for a few hours a day, members have access to the facility via a key card from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Drop ins are welcome, which has been a popular option for people interested in checking out the club and what it’s about. Drop ins are $5 for seniors or students and adults pay $7. “It’s cheaper than going to a movie,” said Lee. Equipment is available to rent at the site.
