Bellevue schools superintendent resigns BY GABRIELLE NOMURA Bellevue Reporter

Amalia Cudeiro resigned as Bellevue schools superintendent Tuesday, citing family medical issues. She asked the school board not to renew her contract. The decision came six weeks after Cu-

deiro took medical leave to be with her mother, a stroke victim and cancer patient, in California. Doctors at that time were telling Cudeiro that her mother may not pull through. However, she

For many kids, complex scientific formulas and theory fly in one ear and out the other because they have no idea when they’d use them in the real world.

Paul Verhage, a graduate student at the Kansas University is attempting to change this, and he’s enlisted students at Tyee Middle School to help him out. Twenty-three 7th and 8th graders at Tyee, made up mostly of science and math class sections, have been enlisted to design

A morning standoff between police and a 48-year-old Bellevue man who barricaded himself inside his mother’s home for hours Wednesday ended peacefully. Police were able to convince Gregory Trandum to leave the house after more than eight hours. Police received a call from the mother of Trandum at 6:18 a.m. that he had come to the house on 174th Avenue Northeast off Northup Way, said Bellevue Police spokeswoman Officer Carla Iafrate. According to neighbors, Trandum had a no-contact order with his mother, and he had just been released from jail the night before. Police closed the road as they attempted to coax Trandum out of the home. Police said they were in no hurry because they wanted to ensure the situation ended peacefully. “Patience is safety; there’s no need to rush in,” Iafrate said. Trandum’s mother got out of the home, and she was waiting outside for the resolution of the standoff. Iafrate said Trandum did not have any known firearms on him. Neighbors said this wasn’t the first time Trandum had barricaded himself inside his mother’s home. Rod Benedict, who lives just down the street, said he has known the suspect since middle school. He said Trandum suffered a debilitating back injury approximately 10 years ago as a construction worker. The injury cost him his job and livelihood, and it also introduced him to painkillers. Since that time, Benedict said, he has changed greatly. “He was just a normal guy until he got hurt,” Benedict said. “He’s just been dealing with a lot of pain for most of his life.” Nat Levy: 425-453-4290; nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

One of Eastside Audubon’s foremost leaders on environmental issues has been named president of the Eastside organization. Andy McCormick, an 18-year resident of Bellevue, had been chair of Eastside Audubon’s Conservation Committee for three years and advocated for the East Link light rail solution that the Bellevue City Council adopted unanimously in November. He started with Eastside Audubon five years ago as a volunteer doing habitat restoration and boardwalk maintenance at the Audubon BirdLoop in Marymoor Park, where the chapter continues its work on habitat enhancement and trail improvement. “I want to share the fun of birding with people and I also want to be a contributor to preserving birds,” Dr. McCormick said. “Helping people have birds to enjoy for the future — that’s what I’m about.” He holds a doctorate in social work and social research from Portland State University and is a specialist in palliative care at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Also assuming Eastside Audubon board positions will be Dora Rajkhowa (treasurer, Sammamish), Tim McGruder (at-large member, Kirkland), Tricia Kishel (birding chair, Bellevue), and Mary Brisson (communication chair, Redmond).

BC to offer new bachelor’s degree Bellevue College will offer a new fouryear bachelor’s degree program in healthcare technology and management. Bellevue College officials said the transfer of medical records to online and electronic databases will lead to big job growth. According to estimates by the American Medical Informatics Association, it will take as many as 200,000 workers to satisfy the projected job market demand, with thousands of positions in Washington State alone. Graduates of the program could work everywhere from large hospitals to small physicians’ offices, developing and managing systems to record the vast amounts of electronic health information. The first classes are set to begin fall quarter, September 2012. The college expects to enroll 45 students in the first year, with annual enrollments growing to 90 students by year four. “This new degree program is another

Our efforts are helping residents of our state gain access to affordable education so they can get jobs and progress in their fields, enabling them to better support themselves and their families.” The program completed the approval process on Jan. 23 when the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities gave its authorization. It joins two other four-year degrees currently offered at BC: a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Interior Design, and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Radiation and Imaging Sciences. Community colleges like BC have typically offered only two-year degrees and certificates. However, a study by the state’s Higher Education Coordinating Board in 2008 concluded that existing universities could not provide enough graduates with bachelor’s degrees to meet the employment needs of companies and organizations.

Sarah Smale, a 9-year-old who attends Open Window School in Bellevue, admires the illustrations in ‘The Treasure Decision,’ a story she wrote for Mrs. P’s ‘Be-A-Famous-Writer’ contest. SAMANTHA PAK, Redmond Reporter

Bellevue student receives grand prize in national ‘Be-A-Famous-Writer’ contest BY SAMANTHA PAK Reporter Newspapers

Sarah Smale was introduced to the literary world when her father would tell her bedtime stories about a group of bunnies and their many adventures. Eventually, she began telling the bunny tales and now at age 9, her stories have evolved to feature a young girl named Rosie and have been recognized by a number of writing contests. One of her latest stories, “The Treasure Decision,” was a grand prize winner in the third annual Mrs. P’s “Be-AFamous-Writer” Contest. “It felt kind of exciting and surprising,” said Sarah, who attends Open Window School in Bellevue. “My first first-place” The national contest is organized by MrsP.com, a free website for kids that encourages them to read and inspires them to love books, according to creator and co-president Dana Plautz, who is known as Mrs. P. The contestants could write about any topic, fiction or non-fiction, but were limited to 250 to 1,000 words. Entries were

divided into two age groups: 4-8 and 9-13. Sarah, a fourth grader, was the grand prize winner in the former as she was 8 when she wrote and submitted her story. As a winner, Sarah’s story has been made into a book with illustrations by awardwinning illustrator Robin E. Kaplan from Portland, Ore. She has received two copies — one for herself and one for her school’s library. Sarah said she gets her story ideas from what she thinks would be a fun and exciting life for herself. She said she will probably write a few more Rosie stories, but has other characters she wants to write about as well. While Sarah has no problem thinking up stories, she does face one challenge with writing for contests. “Sometimes it’s hard to get below the word count,” she said, adding she usually has to cut out details to stay within the limits.

Can we all play nice this time? Politics and the way people feel about their own views v. the views of others seems to get nastier and nastier as a major election approaches. People will always disagree, but can we do this without losing respect for one another? Four years ago when a presidential race was ramping up, as one is now, I was continually sent a barrage of emails from a friend, who has polar opposite political opinions than me. I asked her to stop, as I found them insulting. She did not. I was very close to her at the time, but it killed our friendship for quite a long time. Now, we’ve been in contact once again, sharing thoughts on family and daily challenges, peacefully. The other day I re-posted something I liked from another person’s page on Facebook. It was political, but really benign, not nasty, in fact something positive. My old friend pipes in immediately with a stream of vitriol that wouldn’t end. I responded, and said please, let’s not do this again. Do what? She seemed to think she was innocent of stirring up trouble again. Also, about the middle of last year, a second cousin of mine, who I’ve known since he was born, turned real ugly on me, going so far as to call me a communist on Facebook. I had to “de-friend” him and report him to Facebook to get him from spewing forth really, really ugly stuff on my home page. It was devastating and stressful for me. Why on earth can’t we all just agree to disagree, but be nice about it? Linda Ball

OPINION

[4] February 3, 2012

It will be a long, ugly year if the citizens of this deeply divided country continue sniping at each other, just like Congress does now. Rise above it people. We need to rise above the partisan bickering and work together to achieve results. Steve Farley, a Democrat who is an assistant minority leader in the Arizona House of Representatives, said disagreement is part of a democracy, but disrespect is not. It took the assassination attempt of then U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona for

members of Congress to actually sit together at the State of the Union addresses the past two years. It’s a start, but at the price of six lives. So, all I’m asking here is for people to play well with others. Be fair. Respect the opinion of others even if you don’t agree. Above all, be nice. Please.

Community stepped up I wanted to publicly acknowledge and thank everyone who participated in our Adopt-A-Family program – especially CHAPTERS, the PTSA at Chestnut Hill Academy, who went above and beyond by helping 17 families. In all, 111 YES families, including 291 children and 137 parents or caretakers, had a joyous Christmas that included clothing, toys and gift cards for food. These holiday donations were on top of the financial contributions that poured in during the last few weeks of the year, helping YES reach our highest-ever annual fund development goal. Because of the generosity of individuals, organizations, businesses and foundations, Eastside kids in crisis can get the help they need, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. Every year since YES was founded in 1968, the community has stepped up to show that it cares for youth. I am so appreciative and humbled by what this means to the kids and families we serve. Like many human service agencies, YES is learning to do more with less. While government subsidies and donations are being squeezed, YES experienced a 24 percent increase in amount of uncompensated care we provided to over 739 clients who could not

afford to pay for the care they needed. The support of the community means youth struggling with emotional distress, molestation, physical violence or substance abuse are seen by a caring and qualified counselor as soon as possible. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Patti Skelton-McGougan, Executive Director, Youth Eastside Services

Why is light rail better? The Bellevue City Council needs to ask Sound Transit how it concluded East Link light rail would be better than a “no-build” option. The agency’s “no build” option added HOV lanes to the outer bridges and used the center bridge to provide two lanes going in the peak commute direction. They apparently never considered dividing the center bridge into inbound and outbound bus-only lanes. This oversight raises the question as to how ST and its consultants could spend more than 30 years studying practically every conceivable transit option and never consider inbound and outbound bus-only lanes? If they had, they would have quickly concluded the bus lanes were infinitely better than light rail.

The bus lanes would have more than 10 times probable light rail capacity and could be available 2012, not 2023. Also, that capacity would cost in the tens of millions, not the billions that ST envisions for East Link and would eliminate the need to devastate parts of Bellevue and spend untold millions on a tunnel. Sound Transit’s apparent failure to do this analysis has already resulted in millions wasted on light rail. The decision not to modify the bridge some 20 years ago has already forced cross-lake commuters to needlessly endure far too many years of congestion

Pets have feelings, too Why do some people think that dogs don’t feel the cold? I recently saw an older, longhaired dog huddled in the back of an open pick-up truck. Mom was sitting in the front seat of the extended cab (meaning there was room for the dog in the back seat) while the dog was shivering. I politely asked if she knew the dog was in obvious discomfort. I was advised that the dog is an outside dog and had been riding in the back of the truck for seven years. Does this fact mean that the dog was happy riding in the back of a cold, wet, windy truck? I called the Humane Society and local law enforcement only to be told nothing could be done, because the parking lot was private property. Huh? Isn’t there a law about unsecured loads on cars/ trucks? Please people, when you transport your pets, please transport them responsibly. Put them in a safe, secure, comfortable carrier. Better yet, put them where they SHOULD be; in the cab with you!

Cudeiro said her proudest accomplishment in her twoand-a-half years on the job was the creation of a qualified cabinet of leaders at the administrative and teacher level, including teacher leadership trainings. Despite that, 623 teachers in the Bellevue Education Association (the organization has about 1,100 members) voted “no confidence” in Cudeiro last fall. Cudeiro said she is pleased with the new teacher contract she helped negotiate. “It was a very difficult and unhappy time for teachers, but I think it holds everyone accountable,” Cudeiro said. School Board President Paul Mills hopes people remember the positive impact Cudeiro made in the district. “I was disappointed in her decision, but I can certainly understand, having lost both my parents last year,” he said. “Family is huge.” The board will be considering all its options for a new candidate, including the possibility of hiring internally. Ads will be placed across the country as soon as possible.

shows respect to everyone from the bus drivers in the snow storm to checking in with teachers.” Miller hopes to see someone with a strong understanding of how a district works from the administrative side to the teacher-level. “It’s no secret that the teachers were not happy with her leadership ... Now we can work on a new direction for the district.” However, Miller still wishes Cudeiro the best. “You feel very sorry for anyone struggling with their family.” Cudeiro will no longer be superintendent, but her career in education will continue. During her time as superintendent, she stepped away from the California-based Targeted Leadership Consulting she and her husband cofounded, and will eventually reassume her position there, working with schools across the country. Cudeiro will miss Bellevue teachers, staff, students and parents. “If it weren’t for them willing to have faith in me, I wouldn’t have been able to do my job,” she said.

Mills said the board has already received a letter of interest from Susan Enfield, the former Seattle School District superintendent, who was a candidate for the Bellevue position that went to Cudeiro. “We had a very good feeling about Susan and had to make a difficult decision,” Mills said. Additionally, the board has set Feb. 14 and 16 aside to hold community forums to get input from staff and families on the qualities they want in a new superintendent. People should check the district website (http:// bsd405.org) as the finalized plans will be posted there. During Cudeiro’s medical leave, Assistant Superintendent Eva Collins served as Interim Superintendent and will continue to do so until Cudeiro’s June. Michele Miller, BEA President, said things have improved in the few months Collins has been in charge. “There’s been a greater feeling of collaboration in her messages to staff,” said Miller, who was vocal of her dislike of Cudeiro’s leadership style, along with many of the other 623 BEA members who voted no confidence. “[Collins]

Generation gap| BY GABRIELLE NOMURA Bellevue Reporter

Let me get one thing straight – at age 24, I’m not sure I’m qualified to write a review of Village Theatre’s newest play, “The Odd Couple.” Set in New York in the ‘60s, the play depicts the tale of divorced men looking for meaning in their lives after marriage. The leads are Felix Ungar, an utterly annoying neat freak, and Oscar Madison, a curmudgeon who tosses his wrappers and trash on the floor. Felix moves into Oscar’s apartment when his wife kicks him out, and hilarity ensues as these two try to make it work being best friends, yet polar opposites of one another. When Neil Simon sat down to write his comedic play in the mid-’60s, a slob was someone who sat on his couch eating peanuts, as opposed to Big Macs and fries. A man who was in touch with his emotions

and loved to clean was seen as an oddity; today, he’s an ideal husband. These two male archetypes, while comical in the ‘60s, are not relevant in 2012. Male and female gender roles have changed dramatically since Simon’s time: hippies have frolicked, the bra was burned, then brought back to be worn under women’s shoulderpadded suites. The term stay-at-home-dad continues to become more and more normal. And divorce has become less of a big deal. When I knew I would be doing a review of “The Odd Couple,” I brought the one person I could think of who would appreciate it – my

While the phenomenal actors still made me laugh, especially at Oscar’s “Why I oughtta…!” moments or Felix’s cluelessness, there have been other Village plays that resonated with me more; shows such as

“Take Me America,” a story of international people seeking asylum in lifeand-death situations, or the radical “Jesus Christ Superstar.” The art of theater won’t always be able to please its audiences, especially when

the people sitting in the seats are generations apart. But it’s good there’s a theater nearby that knows when to push boundaries and when to pull out the oldies. Gabrielle Nomura: 425-453-4270; gnomura@bellevuereporter.com

Local basketball teams prep for run through postseason BY JOSH SUMAN jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

In 4A, the boys basketball KingCo Tournament gets underway on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at the higher seeded school. The top four teams from each division will matchup in the first round of the double-elimination tournament with the top two earning the league’s direct berths to the regional round and the third place finisher facing the third place team from the 4A WesCo tournament. Newport currently sits in the fourth spot after falling to Skyline last week, but could still slip past Issaquah into the third seed depending on how the rest of the regular season plays out. The 4A girls tourney will start a day later at higher seeded schools and will also pit the top four teams from each division for two direct tickets to regionals and one spot in a KingCo-WesCo pigtail game. The top six teams on both the boys and girls sides will take part in the 3A KingCo Tournament, which begins on

Monday, Feb. 6 at the higher seeded school. The boys and girls tournaments will continue on Tuesday, Feb. 7 and Thursday, Feb. 9 at Bellevue College with the top four teams advancing to the SeaKing District 2 boys and girls tournaments on Saturday, Feb. 11. The Bellevue boys are both still in contention for the top seed along with Lake Washington and Mercer Island. Bellevue and Mount Si are currently tied in the fourth slot on the girls side while Sammamish is winless in league play and will not be one of the six teams in the tournament. Interlake still has a chance to earn one of the 12 spots into the West Central District III girls hoops tournament. 1A Bellevue Christian looks poised to earn a top seed on the boys side, with the Vikings still unscathed in Emerald City League play. 12 teams will head to the Tri-District tournament for both the boys and girls with the top six gaining a spot in the regional playoff round.

ith a handful of touted in-state recruits spurning the home state schools in 2012, there has been no shortage of conversation on the topic of fan interaction with local prep superstars. Unlike some, I’m not of the belief that seniors in high school should be handled with “kid gloves” (don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t mean I condone death threats and other subhuman behavior either). But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some lessons to be learned. Josh Suman Take the case of Kevin Hart. In 2008, Hart held an announcement ceremony at Fernley High School in Nev., where he was the biggest thing to come through the program since, well, ever. As countless others before him and after, Hart chose a hat from a table, telling the world he would be headed to Cal-Berkeley to play for coach Jeff Tedford. The only problem was, someone forgot to tell the Golden Bears. Hart, though widely considered the top lineman prospect in Nevada in the 2008 class, had a sagging GPA and had never even taken the SAT. Because of his shortcomings in the classroom, the recruiting process had in reality never even gotten off the ground. After the folks in Berkeley got word of his faux-announcement the dominos of his deceit began to fall, leaving Hart among the rubble. “I was so down on myself,” Hart told ESPN’s Tom Friend in a 2009 story. “So college football was not on the list of places I’d go from here.” But Merle Trueblood believed otherwise and knew there was a chance for Hart and others in his position to learn a lesson. “I saw the pain on the kid’s face,” the Feather River Athletic Director said when reached by telephone. Trueblood said he and former coach Tom Simi waited for months to get a reply from Hart, who was “pretty protected” after the story of his faux commitment had become national news. Eventually, after time helped rinse away the sour taste of his own dishonesty, Hart opened up to playing the game again and landed with Trueblood and Simi at Feather River College, a junior college in Quincy, Calif where he would overcome injuries, continued scholastic hardship and most importantly, one big mistake he made back home in Fernley. In 2011, he was named a first-team All-California junior college lineman. On Wednesday, he signed an official National Letter of Intent to play his final two years of collegiate football at Missouri Western State, a Division II school that finished with a 9-3 mark in football in 2011. “He’s turned his whole life around,” Trueblood said. “It’s the most inspirational story I’ve ever heard or seen in my life.” And it’s a great lesson, especially on signing day.

Listening to the sounds – of silence

S

STILL LIFE

Ann Oxrieder

nowfalls, like the one we had recently, provide the rare experience of a quiet world. The first day that snow covered my neighborhood, I received the gift of a few hours of absolute stillness unmarred by traffic or other city sounds.  No cars traveled down our street. The only noise I heard was the shriek of a child walking by. Otherwise, complete silence. Outdoor noise isn’t the only element that interferes with quiet. “The Joy of Quiet,” an article by http://www.rolfpotts. com/writers/iyer.html Pico Iyer in the New York Times cites a growing trend of setting aside time to escape from telephones, email, newspapers, Facebook and other distractions. Iyer says he retreats to a monastery several times a year to free himself from the news of the world and find peace and quiet. (Years ago, I had a brief, but thrilling conversation with him over one of his books and his thengirlfriend.) I’m not the only one who benefits from silence. One organization, http://onesquareinch.

org/about/ One Square Inch, A Sanctuary for Silence at Olympic National Park, has found “the quietest place in the United States” in the http://www.nps.gov/olym/ planyourvisit/visiting-the-hoh.htm Hoh Rain Forest. The group expects that ”if a loud noise, such as the passing of an aircraft, can impact many square miles, then a natural place, if maintained in a 100 percent noise-free condition, will also impact many square miles around it.” My husband and I find quiet — broken only by the occasional airplane — in rural areas, Winthrop, Washington being one of our favorites.  My husband still recalls the sound of snowflakes settling on the shoulder of his parka while cross-country skiing. Silence isn’t for everyone.  While eating dinner in the Duck Brand restaurant in Winthrop, we overheard a child complaining to his mother, “It’s too dark and quiet here. I can’t sleep.”

Groups seek to save trees in Overlake project of the planned development. Significant trees are defined by the city as having a diameter of 6 inches or more at the height of 4-and-a-half feet above the ground. The vacant property, located at 2464 152nd Ave. NE, is the site of a former hospital that closed in 2008. The parcel is bordered by the Microsoft campus and is adjacent to a proposed East Link light rail station. The Group Health Overlake Village project would add 10-12 apartment buildings and 1.4 million square feet of commercial space to the neighborhood. It also calls for removing 65 landmark trees, estimated to be 150 to 250 years old, and another 985 trees up to 150 years old, according to a Sustainable Redmond press release. A judge is scheduled to hear arguments of the case June 25.

BY BILL CHRISTIANSON Reporter Newspapers

Sustainable Redmond is leading a legal charge to save more than 1,000 trees slated to be cut down as part of a 28-acre, mixed-use, transit-oriented development in the Overlake area. The grass-roots organization, along with neighborhood groups, including Bellevue’s Sherwood Forest Community Club, and former Redmond Mayor Rosemarie Ives, filed a land-use petition in King County Superior Court on Jan. 24, seeking to block Group Health Cooperative’s plans of cutting down 1,050 “significant” trees from a vacant site

Metro Transit will cut one bus route in the NewcastleFactoria area and eliminate DART service there as well following adoption Monday of a new transit plan. Hours allocated to those routes will be assigned to more heavily used routes, mostly in Seattle. The change, approved by the Metropolitan King County Council on Monday, are the first service adjustments since the adoption of the County’s Transit Strategic Plan. The changes reflect the plan’s goals of allocating service hours to higher-performing bus routes to address overcrowding, on-time performance, and adding service to underserved corridors with the goal of making the overall bus system more productive. Route 219 serves a circular route between Newcastle and Factoria in the early morning and late afternoon. The 925 DART route, an on-call bus service, serves the same general area. Two bus routes, 114 and 240, serve part of the area being eliminated.

The project is part of Verhage’s doctoral thesis about hands-on learning. “Anytime you do a project-based lesson you increase student interest, and I’m hoping to show that’s the case,” Verhage said. “It’s when students don’t see an application, and they just listen to lectures all day, for those fence-sitters that’s how you can turn them off.” Verhage began with a survey of the kids doing the project, and a group that will not participate. Another survey will follow at the end, and Verhage will be able to measure whether the projects have helped increase the students’ interest in math and science.

This program fits well with Tyee’s mission, said Burke, who teaches science technology engineering and math (STEM) classes. He said there has been a national push to get students’ scientific and mathematical comprehension up, and finding ways to make programs more fun is the best way to do that. “You’re not just learning about the little pieces of the puzzle,” Burke said. “You’re learning about the whole

puzzle and how it pieces together.” Turner Smith has long been interested in how the pieces fit together. His dad is a bit of a handyman at home, taking apart computers when they experience a problem. When Turner found out he had the opportunity to build his own computer boards, he jumped at the chance. It makes going to school every day a little more fun and unpredictable, noting,

When a tooth becomes badly infected, it can only be saved by a root canal procedure that involves removal of the nerve and pulp inside the tooth. This “endodontic treatment” is preceded by injections of local anesthetic, after which an opening is created in the tooth’s crown and into the pulp chamber. After the pulp is removed, the chamber is cleansed and enlarged. Then, a temporary filling is set into the tooth’s crown. On the next visit, the temporary filling is removed and the root canals are filled with special rubber-like material and permanently sealed. Again, a temporary filling is set in place, which is subsequently removed when a crown is placed on the restored tooth.

Paid obituaries include publication in the newspaper and online at www.bellevuereporter.com

Since enrolling in the program, after it was suggested by her teacher James Burke, she is excited to be a part of actually putting the satellite together. “I’m getting to construct something that I’ll probably never get to again,” said the 8th grader. “I thought it would be cool to be handson to put things together.” Just a few weeks in, students are beginning to split off into three groups. One group will be responsible for soldering wiring and electronics, one will work on manually coding the website for data, and the final group will put the physical satellite together out of styrofoam, duct tape and other household materials.
