One step closer to SAMMI awards

Rich Weyls, chaplain at Issaquah’s Swedish Medical Center, prays over Julita Fitzgerald in her room. An expert in spiritual care, Weyls is treated as a member of the hospital team. Celeste

The SAMMI Awards Foundation announced its 2012 nominees Wednesday, recognizing 46 community members who represent the foundation’s mission of “Celebrating and Promoting Community Involvement.” Teams of volunteers interviewed the finalists over three evenings at Sammamish City Hall. The SAMMI Awards Foundation will announce winners at at 7 p.m., Friday, March 16 at Eastridge Church.

Healing Hands

Chaplain meets spiritual needs in illness and death room, blips pass endlessly across a heart monitor screen. Hospitals can feel threatening. She’s probably scared. Positing to leave for the time, Weyls says, “Can I wish you health and peace?” “Whatever you want,” her voice calm but careless. “That’s what I want for you.” The tenderness in his answer finishes the lesson. Her eyes tear – someone does care.



“I don’t let the question of religion ever get in the way of spiritual care.”

he light-footed chaplain slips open a curtain and pokes his head into Room 3306. His lips form a greeting, but before his first syllable is born, the patient snaps, “Are you a doctor?”

– Chaplain Rich Weyls speak. Taking her hand, he pushes past an array of bloodstained stories to ask about her present feelings. She’s angry and sad. But why recall incidents buried by 40 years of life? Outside her

Rich Weyls’ visit is unexpected. He begins to explain, but halfway through his response, the patient interrupts again with news of her mother’s recent death. Soon the memories of her mother slide into the deepest traumas of her life, each more horrifying than the last. Forty minutes pass, nurses scuttle in and out of the room, before she allows Weyls a moment to

Chaplains have long had a place in American hospital care, but in a modern scene the priests who once evangelized the sick and dying have since transformed into experts for the spiritually suffering. Swedish Medical Center in Issaquah is no exception. The presence of its chaplain is so crucial, the hospital’s accreditation required someone like Weyls to be on staff. His worn leather shoes pass through the emergency room and in and out of intensive care all day long. The work is practical for doctors, who tend to focus on the See Chaplain, 12

BUSINESS ROUNDUP Swedish Issaquah implements new bedside technology Patients at Issaquah’s Swedish Medical Center can now get just about anything they need with a click of a remote control button. The facility recently received a technological upgrade with the installation of UpCare technology from Boston-based Aceso. The system delivers medical information via television screens to the bedside of every patient. Remote control devices allow patients to gather condition-specific treatment information, order meals, choose different entertainment options and purchase items from the hospital’s retail services. “Aceso’s UpCare system is the ideal fit for Swedish’s Issaquah campus as we aim to provide patients with the most compassionate hospital experience available,” said Chuck Salmon, vice president of operations at Swedish/Issaquah. Through its partnership with Seattlebased The Window Channel, Aceso’s technology delivers ambient scenic images to the screen, bringing a calming atmosphere to the patient’s room.

Experience Tea brings unique flavor to Issaquah Studio concept provides customers ‘journey’ into world of tea BY KEVIN ENDEJAN KENDEJAN@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Once a high-ranking national manager at a bank, Issaquah resident Roberta Fuhr took a bold step in 2008. After watching her daughter graduate college and move to the East Coast for a job, Fuhr did some soul searching and decided to step down from her banking position. “I was just really ready for a change — I was at that place where I needed a purpose,” she said. After spending time exploring her interests, the recreational tea drinker started reading books about the intricacies of Camiella Sinensis — the species of plant whose buds are used to produce tea. She followed up by taking certification courses with the

Roberta Fuhr, owner of Experience Tea, stands in front of the selection of specialty teas located at her Front Street shop. KEVIN ENDEJAN, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter Specialty Tea Institute. That’s when her idea was born. “I started Googling tea classes because I thought, ‘Wow, I wonder if anybody teaches this,’” Fuhr said. The answer to her question was a resounding ‘no.’ “What was frustrating to me as I was getting more into tea, is how bad our industry is in really teaching people what tea is,” she said.

She added that many specialty tea shops focus on things such as free WiFi, serving food and free shipping, while they keep their product behind counters. Fuhr took a step towards changing that model in October 2011, when she opened Experience Tea on Issaquah’s Front Street. The business sells a large variety of specialty teas and tea accessories, but its unique-

ness lies within its open tea studio concept. Fuhr, who runs Experience Tea on her own, holds a variety of tea discovery classes and tastings throughout the week. She teaches customers everything from the history of tea to how oxidation can make a difference in flavor, to the importance of steeping temperatures and times. “The way I look at it, I start them on a tea journey

because it really is a journey,” said Fuhr, comparing the tea experience to that of wine and wine tasting. In a basic tea-tasting class, Fuhr has customers sample the whole spectrum of teas. They start with one white, one green, two oolongs, two blacks and one pu’erh — an aged tea from southern China. In order to maintain an authentic experience, teas are served in a traditional gaiwan bowl on a gongfu serving table. Fuhr makes sure to use teas that are single origin in flavor so people experience the true taste. “By the time people leave here they’re just excited,” Fuhr said. “It’s cool to learn something new. I think they have a real appreciation for the complexity of it and there’s so much more that they want to know.” There are a large variety of other classes and workshops, which range from $20-$25. According to Fuhr, business continues to gain momentum, largely by word of mouth. “I walked out of there feeling more knowledgable and actually excited about tea,” Sammamish resident Jenny Schmidt said. “This

is one of those rare places I couldn’t wait to tell friends about.” Local customers make up a large portion of the clientele, but people have come from as far away as Gig Harbor to take classes. “I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” said Fuhr, who has lived in Issaquah for more than 22 years. “I just had this strong feeling that Issaquah is where it would be best.”

Reporter’s improved online calendar will give you new reach for your events


or all our readers who use our online calendar – help has arrived. The Reporter has a new online calendar for the public to use. It might seem strange that an online calendar would be a topic for an editorial, but people – lots of them – called and wrote us when our former calendar stopped working some weeks back. The problem has been fixed with the old calendar replaced by an entirely new system that offers users more options to get their events out to the public. One of the best improvements is that people will NOT need to register for an account to use it. You just add events with a single form and a confirmation email. Super easy. Another new feature is that all of the event listings will be visible and promoted on all pages of our online site – not just the home page. And you’ll be able to add events the calendar to your personal online calendar (Google, Yahoo, iCal, Outlook, etc.). You’ll also be able to share events on social networks. Finally, you will be able to target your calendar item to specific categories, newspapers and age groups. Now for a couple of minuses. Current calendar events will NOT be imported to the new system. That means you’ll have to repost upcoming items. And all submitted items will have to be approved by the editor. But don’t worry, approval should be very quick. I’ll get a daily email reminding me to check for new items. You should find your item online within 48 hours of when you entered it. We love the online calendar and, like you, have been frustrated about it not working. That problem now is over. Get those calendar items back online.

Do it yourself Once again, the state’s Democrat and Republican parties want taxpayers to shell out for what essentially is a private issue – election of their party precinct committee officers. Both have filed a lawsuit asking that the state be ordered to continue conducting PCO elections as part of the Top 2 Primary ballot. The court should say “no.” The Democratic Party and the Republican Party are private associations. While the state has allowed the election of precinct committee officers to be put on ballots in the past, it doesn’t have to, according to a U.S. District Court ruling. And Secretary of State Sam Reed makes a good point that “county election offices do not conduct elections for other private associations, such as Rotary clubs, unions, or trade associations. If political parties don’t like that, they can find a way different from the Primary ballot – and at their own expense.

Sammamish suffers a great loss


hen the news broke, I didn’t recognize his name. It only took a second, however, to place his face. In my four-plus years of covering sports in Sammamish, I probably saw him a hundred times. Whether standing on the sideline or sitting in the stands, school resource officer Stan Chapin was a familiar fixture at Eastlake High sporting events. And from speaking to students, that wasn’t fluke. Chapin, who died unexpectedKevin Endejan ly last week at his home, made it a point to not only be visible at student events, he genuinely had an interest in the outcome. “He would attend all the school events on his own time and that really showed us how much he truly cared,” 2010 EHS graduate Dylan Markley said. Student after student echoed the sentiment last week in Eastlake’s hallways, sharing stories of a man they not only viewed as an authority figure, but a friend. “He knew all the students by name,” senior Marlena Masterleo said. “If he didn’t know you’re name right away, he’d know it the next couple of times he’d talk to you.” Chapin would sit at the entrance to the school in the morning, greeting every student with a wave and a smile. He did the same in the afternoon as they left. During lunch, he walked around and talked with kids. If someone looked upset, he wasted no time reaching out to them. He was also well-known for his sense of humor. YouTube searches for “Stan Chapin” bring up

videos of velociraptor impersonations and a skit at Inglewood where he dressed up in a wig and lipsynced Hannah Montana songs. Of course there was a firm side. The near 40year veteran of the King County Sheriff’s Office was a father of three, a former detective, a veteran of the Seattle FBI’s Fugitive Apprehension Team and an U.S. Army reservist. While his resource officer job required a certain sternness, he always maintained a balance — something students admired. “He does (things) in such a way that you understand why he had to do what he had to do and you just respect it,” Masterleo said. It was no mistake Sammamish Police Chief Nate Elledge assigned Chapin to his position. “He was there because he genuinely cared about the kids,” Elledge said. “Because he wanted to see the kids succeed.” While I never met him, it’s not hard to determine officer Chapin was a rare gem. He was an authority figure who gained respect by showing respect — a philosophy most anyone could apply to not only make the community, but the world a better place. Thank you for all your service, officer Chapin. You will be deeply missed.

MEMORIAL FUND A memorial fund has been established to benefit the family of Officer Stan Chapin. Donations can be made to the “Stan Chapin Memorial Fund” at any Washington Federal branch.

Neighborhood developer digs without permit

issaquah & sammamish REPOrTER

Test pits dug out by developer Buchan Homes has resident’s in and around Sammamamish’s Chestnut Estates neighborhood up in arms. Evan Maxim, senior planner for the city of Sammamish, said Chestnut Estates, a 34-lot development on the east side of Ebright Creek, was a very controversial plat. Buchan started the process with Chestnut Estates in 1997 and it wasn’t approved until 2010. Now, Buchan wants to develop 30 homes in Chestnut Estates West, 85 acres on the west side of Ebright Creek. When Chestnut Estates was developed, 8.3 acres — known as Tract K — were set aside as “permanent open space” as required by city code. Recently, neighbors

reported that Buchan dug test holes and moved dirt around on Tract K, without a permit. Greg Nelson, project manager for Buchan Homes, said the company was digging test holes to examine soils and ground water, required as part of the application for Chestnut Estates West. Buchan dug the test holes, however, without the required permit. “They didn’t get a permit to do this, and they should have asked in advance,” Maxim said. Even though it’s after the fact, Maxim said after reviewing the site, Buchan was asked to get a permit. They may be required to re-plant the area because Sammamish requires a permit for environmental exploration. But the controversy doesn’t stop there. The drawing for the new Chestnut Estates West

use attorneys, Aramburu and Eustis, to look into the situation. “I’ve been very concerned about Ebright Creek,” Pereyra said. “It contains kokanee, which is an endangered species.” Sammamish mayor Tom Odell said Chestnut Estates West will be

reviewed by community development director Kamuron Gurol. An appeal could go to a hearing examiner, after which it is still appealable in the court system. Odell said one of the questions is whether Buchan can switch the reserve or open space to

another area. “I’m not saying what they’re going to do,” Maxim said. “I don’t know if what Buchan is proposing is going to work.” Reporter Linda Ball can be reached at 206-232-1215 ext. 5052

plat shows that Buchan is proposing to use portions of Tract K for eight and a half lots, five and a half of which would be located along the edge of Ebright Creek Canyon. Nelson said adjustments or modifications of property lines is not uncommon. He said developing part of Tract K protects area streams better than the old plan. “What’s being developed is not encumbered by critical areas,” Nelson said. “Our intention is to follow the regulations developed by the city, and we’re doing our best to follow them.” Nelson said a new open space would be created on the more sensitive ravine around the creek. Maxim said it’s about six acres. But property owner and longtime Sammamish resident, Walter Pereyra, said Buchan bulldozed a trail onto Tract K and bore test holes, contrary to city code. Ebright Creek runs right through Pereyra’s property off East Lake Sammamish Parkway. Pereyra has retained environmental land

QFC Supports Heart Health It is fitting that a month which includes Valentine’s Day should also be American Heart Month. February is a month when we should consider not only the love in our hearts but also the health of our hearts. That’s one reason why QFC is proud to support the American Heart Association and “Go Red For Women.” “Go Red For Women” was created by the American Heart Association in 2004 to call attention to the fact that heart disease is not just a disease for older men. As noted on its website, “More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined.” In fact, in the year in which “Go Red For Women” was created, cardiovascular disease was killing nearly a half-million women in the U.S. annually. Funds raised for the “Go Red For Women” are used to support awareness, scientific research, education and community programs to benefit women. The AHA “Go Red For Women” website reports that “over 2 million women have learned their personal risk of developing heart disease by taking the Go Red Heart CheckUp,” and “over 200,000 healthcare provider offices have received critical patient information on women and heart disease.”

If you would like to support QFC’s charity of the month you can do so by asking your QFC checker to scan a $1, $5, or $10 donation card, designate that your 3-cent reusable bag credit be donated or simply place your extra change in our coin boxes. At QFC we believe that everyone’s health is important and during 2012 we are actively encouraging our associates to make choices to lead healthier lifestyles. One of the ways we are doing that in 2012 is by offering our associates several walking challenges. Walking is a great low-impact form of exercise that can provide a host of great benefits. Studies have shown that walking can strengthen men and women’s hearts to decrease the risk or occurrence of cardiac events. It has also been associated with stronger bones, a slower decline in cognitive ability, reduced risk of developing diabetes, improved fitness and physical function and more! Walking is a form of exercise that most people are able to engage in even if they must start with short sessions. As the body adapts and responds to regular exercise, most people are able

to increase their time and/or level of intensity. The Surgeon General recommends 30 minutes or more of accumulated moderate intensity physical activity on five or more days per week to improve health and fitness. As with any exercise program, it is important to consult your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. Our current walking challenge began on January 23 and is 10 weeks long. Our associates are being encouraged to sign up to declare a personal goal for the 10-week program and then develop their own walking commitment to get

there. If they sign up for 300,000 steps, this would translate to 30,000 steps a week, or 6,000 steps a day for five days per week. 6000 steps would translate to about a 3-mile walk. Associates may change their goals at any time during the challenge. If you would like to embrace a healthier lifestyle, you might consider creating your own walking challenge.

Make Her Feel Beautiful—Gorgeous red roses and little gifts that speak to their personality or interests can go a long way. For example, nail polish and lipstick are very popular right now and are very affordable. Spend Time Alone—It’s not uncommon for couples to struggle to find time to enjoy each other’s company. “Remember,” says Titus, “a couple must retain some degree of independence from their children to maintain an emotional bond.”


Wow Her—Go the extra mile. For example, according to a survey conducted by Wakefield on behalf of, of the 1,000 women surveyed, over 40 percent (42 percent) of respondents said they would be satisfied if their significant others cooked them a romantic dinner—provided they cleaned up the kitchen after they cooked.

It’s a Sweet Deal!


Little extras, such as having a thoughtful message engraved in a bracelet or ring, can also express your affection and turn a gift into a keepsake.

Big Economics

Issaquah in a ‘pivotal’ moment of economic development with new department, commission The city of Issaquah is embarking on a year of economic development, or so it hopes. While Mayor Ava Frisinger assembles a new department, which would focus on luring new businesses to town, City Council matched her vision by approving new plans to start an Economic Vitality Commission. The idea is to get more business leaders involved with improving the city’s business environment and

dedicating more city staff to making those changes happen. Frisinger set economic development as the focus for the year in her annual address Monday. The mayor typically only gives two speeches at City Hall, the second when she delivers the budget. As development in Talus and the Highlands winds down, the city is turning its resources to redeveloping the valley floor. The changes represent a pivotal moment

in its history, Frisinger said in her speech. City Council already set the stage for planning in December, when it approved Skip Rowley’s development agreement. His storage units and office parks make up the core of the valley floor. By summer, council hopes to be voting the Central Issaquah Plan, a vision-casting document that would guide redevelopment for the rest of the valley floor. While action for the mayor’s new department

Mayor Ava Frisinger delivers her State of the City address at Issaquah City Hall Monday night. She focused on the city’s economic development. CELESTE GRACEY, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter was encouraged by a recent Moss Adams report, City Council first planned for its commission during a goal

setting retreat in May 2011. A part of that particular goal was to improve signage rules. Business owners have

complained about how the rigid regulations have made it difficult to mark their location much less attract new customers. In addition to setting a business tone for the year, Frisinger laid out a number of successes including the opening of Swedish Hospital. She also explained how her staff ’s ability to rush plans for the YWCA’s Family Village in Issaquah made the low-income project possible. “We were nimble enough to make it happen,” she said.

REPORTER Q/A | Olympic hopeful and Eastside Catholic grad Brooke Wales


So when did you start to come into your own as a skier?


Brooke Wales is a 2009 graduate of Eastside Catholic and product of the Mission Ridge Ski Education Foundation, which she joined at age 9. In 2011, Wales became a member of the U.S. Alpine Ski Team, realizing her lifelong dream of representing her country on the International stage. Currently in Colorado for a competition, Wales took some time to chat with the Reporter about her start in skiing, traveling the world before age 21 and putting on the red, white and blue.


Canada, Europe and down to South America to Chile for training in the fall. It’s not something most people get to do. It’s cool to be able to have these stories and say I have seen these cultures and places.

When I was 14 I started to get faster and get pretty good at it and that was when I really decided I liked the sport and wanted to pursue it. As I went on the next couple years I realized it would be realistic to make the USA Ski Team.


I Saw a video of you from a recent competition… Crashing? So you saw it too?

That was in Austria at the World Cup. I was skiing pretty well and really going for it the whole way down and I hit a bump and my right ski caught and spun me around.

What is your first memory of skiing?

Brook Wales: I started skiing when I was four. My parents put me in lessons.



How scary is it when you crash at that high of a speed?

Did you always like it, or was it a kicking and screaming situation?

I had a little moment of panic when I was flying backwards at high speeds but it turned out to be OK and rashes happen in ski racing. I was bummed that I crashed but lucky that I was OK and

It was something that grew on me. I started racing when I was nine and I was really bad at it at first, I wasn’t a phenom by any standards.


What is the toughest part about life on the circuit?

Brooke Wales competes in alpine skiing . CONTRIBUTED everything. I just took away from it that I was skiing well up to that point.


What is the worst injury you have ever suffered on the mountain?

I’ve been very lucky in my career up until now. The worst thing I’ve done is a couple years ago I straddled a gate and got a massive bone bruise on my shin. It was basically just a huge gnarly bruise and I couldn’t race for two weeks. Other than that I’ve been pretty lucky.


Where are the best views from the top of a mountain?


One is up in Vance in Lake Louise Canada in Alberta. That is the Northern Rockies and it’s absolutely gorgeous up there if you get a clear day. The other would be in Europe in the Swiss Alps…a pretty amazing site.


What is it like to travel around the world at your age?

It’s really cool. I’m very lucky to be able to do this and travel as much as I have. If they have it’s because they were on a study abroad trip for a semester. It’s really cool because I’ve been all over wherever there are mountains, in

The tough part is definitely talking to people and that’s something that’s really key for me. When I’m out of the country I’m always trying to find Internet, which can be difficult, so I can Skype with family and friends, who can make me feel more comfortable or not get homesick. Obviously when you’re in Europe for a month, you’re going to miss an American hamburger. They don’t have peanut butter there so this year I brought some. It’s just about adjusting to things and learning what keeps you comfortable when you’re gone for so long. I would probably say going over to Europe the first couple times and still when I go there is kind of a culture shock because it’s so different. You have the language barrier, but there is also the look of the

buildings. The way things are run there is completely different. The hotels we stay in are not even close to what we would consider a hotel over here. It’s usually small rooms, sharing a bed with someone, and there is not much space for the two duffle bags and clothing.


What is it like to have a chance to represent for the United States in competition?


It’s amazing. One of the most exciting points for me was when we got our uniforms in the fall. It was a really exciting experience for me to realize that dream of being on the USA Ski Team was really happening. It’s a lot more real when you go out of the country. When you go to Europe and you’re with five girls from America along with Germans and Italians and French people. It’s a really cool experience an something I’ll always treasure and look back on nd be very grateful and happy.


When will we see Brooke Wales in the Olympics? Hopefully in 2014.

Area boys basketball teams begin postseason tournaments Bothell 63 Skyline 60

Eastside Catholic 83 Chief Sealth 65

The Cougars held on down the stretch to beat the topseeded Spartans behind a game high 27 points from Zach LaVine and 19 more from Perrion Callandret to advance to the 4A KingCo tournament semi-finals. Skyline, which got 20 from guard Will Parker and 16 more from Lucas Shannon, will face Roosevelt in a loserout game at 4:45 p.m., at the Juanita field house on Friday, Feb. 10. The loss drastically alters the state tournament prospects for Skyline, which now must win four consecutive loserout games to advance to the regional round.

Joey Schreiber scored a game high 27 points and Austin Soukup added 24 more to lift EC past the Seahawks and into the next round of the Metro League tournament consolation bracket, securing one of Metro’s seven berths to the SeaKing District tournament in the process.

Issaquah 49, Roosevelt 38 The Eagles withstood a first quarter deficit and 21 points from Roosevelt’s Joe Knight to pick up the win and advance to the 4A KingCo tournament semi-finals against Bothell.

physical needs first. He also helps calm patients and families who sometimes overwhelm hospital staff. Weyls was sipping coffee in the cafeteria, when a page came across a speaker around his neck. An anxious nurse asked for help. Family had been trickling in all day to be with an elderly woman on life support, and it reached a climax. He assured the nurse he would come by again. It was the big crisis of the day, he said, tossing his empty cup into trash. Once a doctor delivers the bad news about a patient, Weyls is often called upon to help families work through their decisions about life support. Physicians take as many questions as they can answer, but when it comes to sorting through the meaning of life, he’s the resident expert. Chaplains are not just for the dead. They help figure out the other aspects of a person’s life that are being impacted by illness, said Dr. Janice Connolly, who worked with Rich for a few years in Swedish’s Palliative Care. There was once a man under Connolly’s care who wasn’t on good speaking terms with a child. No one thought he’d talk to a chaplain, but Weyls worked with him to bring healing to the relationship, she said. “With the grace of Rich, he was able to unload some of his pain,” she said. “I think it was really powerful.”

Qualifications for professional chaplains are almost as much work as becoming a physician. The profession has a few different certification groups, including specialized ones for Jews and Catholics. Below are the requirements from the Board of Chaplaincy Certification Bachelor’s degree Graduate theology degree, typically a Master’s of Divinity Four units of Clinical Pastoral Education alongside a residency Ordained or commissioned to do ministry Ecclesiastical endorsement by a recognized faith group 2,000 hours of chaplaincy work Vetted through the BCC’s certification committees

Issaquah/Sammamish Reporter

The following information was compiled from city of Issaquah and Sammamish police reports:

Guns stolen A new Sammamish resident was greeted with a rude surprise Jan. 23. The home owner on the 1000 block of 227th Avenue Northeast, who had just moved to the area at the end of December, had two guns stolen from his

bedroom closet. The thieves removed a Bushmaster assault rifle with a 20-round clip and a Marlin 22M magnum rifle. There were no signs of forced entry, but the garage doors were left unsecured.

and kicked him out of the apartment after the display Jan. 4.

Domestic disturbance A mother in the 20000 block of Northeast 19th Place in Sammamish reported that her adult son punched three holes in his bedroom wall Dec. 30 after he accused of her

of “nagging” him to go out and find a job. The son responded by saying he took medicine for his back pain which makes him tired and that it prevented him from finding work. The mother told her son to stop taking the medication because it was bad for him. He responded by storming out of the home. Police were unable to find him.

Mailbox smashed A home owner in the 21000 block of Southeast 16th Place in Sammamish reported someone smashed the mailbox of his rental home sometime in the early hours of Jan. 5. The box was still attached to a broken post and it was bent. The home owner was convinced the mailbox was singled out.
