Marchione leadership spans two cities, four decades By Matt Phelps

Most parents have a great feeling of pride when asked about their child’s success. But when a child’s success follows in their own footsteps, that pride can be palpable. When Kirkland Deputy Mayor Doreen Marchione talks about her son, Redmond Mayor John Marchione, the pride is nearly as big as her love for him. “When he was running

for mayor I remember some people coming up to me and saying ‘don’t take this the wrong way, but John is the most qualified person we have ever had to be mayor,’” said Doreen on Monday afternoon, as she sat next to her son in his office at Redmond City Hall. But Doreen did not take

offense because she agrees. “I think he is doing great,” said Doreen, who is 73 and served as Redmond’s mayor from 1984-1992. Many who have served in Redmond’s government have respect for the job the Marchione’s have done. “They have some good leadership genes,” said for-

mer Redmond City Council president Nancy McCormick, who served with both John and Doreen. “They just work well with people.” Doreen is a political trailblazer on the Eastside. She founded the Redmond chapter of the League of Women Voters, was the third woman to be elected to the Redmond City Council, the second female mayor of Redmond and then moved to Kirkland, where she did something even more rare [ more marchione page 2 ]

winning a plurality with 49 percent of the vote, which was split three ways. Doreen served two terms as Redmond mayor before losing to Rosemary Ives in 1991. She would go on to spend 15 years with MultiService Centers of North and East King County, or as it is known today, Hopelink, where she served as CEO. But the call to public service stayed with Doreen and she saw another situation in 2009 with the Kirkland City Council that she could not let go. Scandals and ethical issues brought Doreen back into the political fray as she defeated incumbent Tom Hodgson for Position No. 7. “She just loves to be involved,” said McCormick. “And she is having a ball so I am not surprised.” Doreen, who said that the council has become more civil, was elected by the council to be Deputy Mayor in January. “It was something I wanted to do and I have the experience,” said Doreen. “But I have no desire to be mayor.” John too came into a difficult situation when he was elected mayor. “My relationship with the council has been excellent but (the council’s relationship) was pretty rocky with the prior mayor,” said John.

people in the Redmond city government who served with Doreen and now John. One person who has helped John in his efforts with Redmond’s upcoming 100th anniversary celebrations is former Mayor Chris Himes. “If anyone has a reason to be bitter it is her and she has been great and so gracious,” said John. John said that one interesting fact about his family is that he and his three other brothers have all married women who were trained in the teaching field. “They all have the family value of service to the community,” said Doreen of her sons, noting that Michael is a pastoral assistant, Paul works with non-profit organizations in Washington D.C. and David has worked in social services. But John and Doreen do not talk politics much. “The family would not put up with it,” said Doreen, who has credited her ambition to the fact that her father died when she was six years old and was raised by a working single mother. “We talk more about management issues and her grandkids,” said John. As for a third mayor of Redmond or Kirkland named Marchione, John said that the service to community ethic is there, but he will let his children find their own way.

– won election in a second city. John said he could only think of two other people to win election in two separate cities. Doreen first won election to Redmond’s city council in 1976, spending just $100 on fliers. She stepped down in 1978 to move to Atlanta for her husband’s job. The Marchiones moved back just a few years later and she was re-elected to council in 1981. John has memories of going door-belling with his mother and attending political strategy meetings. But the early elections were a learning experience for John. “I think one of the most important things she taught me was to just ‘let it roll off your back,’” said John. Those life lessons came in difficult ways. “I had people coming up to me when I was 10 or 12 years

old complaining to me about city issues,” he said. “I didn’t think it was fair.” But the hardest thing for John was when people would criticize his mother. “I remember reading letters to the editor against my mom and it was difficult,” said John, who is 46. But those lessons have given John perspective when dealing with his own children and public life. Doreen’s biggest contribution to both cities have come at tumultuous times. In 1983 she decided to challenge for mayor against two other people, including the first female mayor of Redmond, Chris Himes. “When I ran there was a lot going on,” said Doreen. “Quarrels between the mayor and the council.” Doreen ran trying to bring some civility and bridge the divide. But she did not take office with a mandate,

We are listening


woman called us recently to tell us about her concerns regarding two Kirkland transit centers. She said the downtown Kirkland Transit Center and the Evergreen Healthcare Totem Lake Transit Center are “jokes.” Millions of dollars were spent on both projects. The one downtown, which reopened last year after a year-long renovation, now has six bus bays, five passenger shelters, new pedestrian lighting and even a civic plaza, 71-foot trellis and granite staircase that provides a gateway to Peter Kirk Park. The transit center near the hospital, which opened in 2008, also features six bus bays with sheltered passenger waiting areas. But those waiting areas and added features at both transit centers do no good to protect bus riders from inclement weather, the woman continued. Whenever it rains, the benches are always soaked and she has no place to sit down. As a frequent bus rider, this is frustrating, she said. She was also upset that this was the second time she had called the Reporter about this issue and she wanted us to write a story about the wet benches. With more than 80,000 residents in Kirkland, I’ll bet there are thousands and thousands of concerns like this woman’s. And while we can’t guarantee that we’ll write a story about each concern (as we would have more stories than we would have pages in our newspaper), I can guarantee one thing. We are listening. Each time a reader calls or emails us, sends us a Facebook message or Tweet, we listen.

Distressing that bank robber will get more time than DUI driver It was more than distressing to read in the Feb. 10 Reporter that Anthony Shindler will receive more prison time for robbery than Patrick Rexroat will receive for vehicular homicide – where is the “justice” in that? Rexroat left a family devastated with two young children fatherless, while Shindler just walked away with someone else’s money and not a great amount at that. Rep. Roger Goodman’s proposal to strengthen the laws for DUI drivers falls far short of accomplishing anything. The ignition interlock devices are a joke and were perceived to be that even before legislation was passed recommending them; the idea that we can somehow have DUI drivers pay child support for the parents they will eventually kill while we can’t even enforce having deadbeat dads pay for the families they abandon is just too bizarre to contemplate. I don’t have any answers either – were it left up to me, I’d have public

executions immediately for any DUI driver, period. That might begin to resolve the problem. As it is, I think all our lives are at stake when we drive the roads here in Washington, particularly in the evenings and during the holidays. We have a very serious problem with drunks on the roads and until we get really serious about resolutions we will continue to read about the deaths of our citizens by the idiots who decide they can drink and drive without impunity. Currently, they certainly can drink and drive with very limited impunity. Certainly leaves one wondering about the power of the liquor industry in this state.

Linda Bonin, Kirkland

A man’s life is worth more than cash Does it occur to our lawmakers that we have our priorities all off-balance? The first article I read in the Reporter this week (Feb. 10) was about the drunk driver who killed Steve Lacey. It is recommended that he get the maximum sentence of

four years. The next article I read was about a Bothell man who robbed a bank in Kirkland. He will face a sixyear sentence. REALLY! Four years for killing someone and six years for armed robbery. Surely a man’s life is worth more than some cash! I think both sentences are too low but this certainly is a slap in the face to the poor Lacey family.

Reporter should strive for balance Rev. Michael Anderson, in his letter in the Feb. 10 Reporter, speaks with the true Christian spirit in defending marriage equality. The Reporter erred the previous week printing only one hate-filled opinion by one local pastor. In the future, the Reporter should strive for balance in reporting.

Marilyn Brashen, Kirkland

All Christians should be adverse to samesex marriage When I read the letter in the Feb.

10 Reporter (“Article on same-sex marriage misrepresents all Christians”), I really felt that I needed to respond to Rev. Michael Anderson. Being a Faithful Zionist Christian, I am very devoted to the reality of the Word of God. Although a Christian before 1997, I decided to study the Holy Bible full time and in-depth once retired. There is no mystery here, only confusion caused by Christians who are not knowledgeable concerning our Holy Scripture. Christians who have opinions or ideas concerning what the Bible is saying are violating a tenet for Faithful understanding. This causes problems with Believers and nonbelievers alike. There are many errors taught by Christian church leaders every Sunday. Marriage is only the uniting of one man and one woman in matrimony, as ordained by God. This new legislation for same-sex marriage is in opposition to Christianity and all Faithful Christians should be adverse to it. That said, don’t lose any sleep over this law. This is only the beginning of many more issues that will be passed by the legislature/congress that are [ more LETTERS page 5 ]

contrary to valid Christian teaching. You were told this before. Voters are to change those laws at the ballot box. Christianity is the Faith of Love and Patience, (not hate) for all mankind, not picking and choosing only those who are like us. But, within Christianity it is the responsibility of Church Elders to know Scripture and keep the Church leaders focused on the Truth, not their opinions, so as not to tread on the Word. The Bishop mentioned in this letter should have known better. How can any Christian deny the Word so easily in a public venue, especially a leader?

Using a cell phone is just as dangerous as driving drunk Honorable Rep. Roger Goodman, have you ever talked on a cell phone while driving? I know I have. Studies have shown that doing so, even with a silly Bluetooth earring, is just as dangerous as driving drunk. If you get caught behind a motor vehicle while intoxicated you lose your license and go to jail on your first offense. With a cell phone you pay $124 and continue on your journey, possibly calling someone else to say you just got a ticket. I counted three drivers with cell phones attached to their head today alone and who knows how many are using mobile devices “legally” when driving. I completely agree with you that we need

the missing date, but that is all we have since Ms. Biryukova will not step forward and tell the truth about what happened to young Sky,” said Terry. Neither Terry, nor Solomon, have had any contact with Biryukova since the disappearance and she has still not spoken to police, according to Terry. Biryukova’s attorney would not comment on an ongoing investigation. “Her brother, who was the one that named Sky and was his favorite uncle, has done absolutely nothing publicly except one statement in early November, in which he said his sister was devastated by the kidnapping,” said Terry. “… The whole family, and the few close friends Julia had, have been deadly silent in any effort to find Sky … These

However, we all need to do our part, and it starts with not using an iPhone on the journey to our kids’ baseball game. We can all make choices that will ultimately give us a safer community.

Appalled that I have to pay for Kirkland roads As a recent reluctant immigrant into the City of Kirkland, I’m appalled at the notion that I’m going to have to help pay to fix roads that Kirkland has not bothered to maintain. How many more promises made to those of us formerly-known-as-KingCounty-residents are going to be broken?

Shauna Fitzgerald, Kirkland

Hutcherson and religious right The lead story in the Feb. 3 Reporter discusses local Pastor Ken Hutcherson and his threat to fight to overturn the recent vote establishing marriage equality in the state of Washington. Mr. Hutcherson’s name is not new to this issue as he has been a vocal opponent of gay rights for quite some time, so his recent comments should surprise no one. Mr. Hutcherson is trying to frame this as a freedom of religion issue, which it is not. Plain and simple this is a civil rights issue and Mr. Hutcherson and his brethren are on the wrong side, as they have been for years. I’m sure that most people who oppose marriage equality don’t think of themselves as oppressors or as hateful individuals, they are simply repeating the ideologies that have been instilled in them through years of attendance at their local churches. Unfortunately,

this medieval way of thinking has negative consequences for millions of gay American citizens. Despite the spin from some quarters on the religious right, this is not a Christian nation. It’s a secular nation comprised of people of many belief systems and not all belief systems see a problem with letting people marry someone of the same sex if they so choose. To do otherwise would make this a theocracy run by religious ideology and not by laws designed to benefit all citizens.

Charges for that incident were originally brought against Wolf on June 20 and have been combined with the new charges brought on Jan. 5.

are the same people who leaped gladly to assist Julia with written denunciations of Solomon when the shared custody request of Solomon was denied.” Terry’s law firm sent out 360 letters to local doctors asking if they had treated Sky, who was sick according to Biryukova, and none have seen the boy or his sister during 2011. Maile Metalwala was taken from her mother after the incident and placed in foster care. She has since been reunited with her father and has also started school. There have been several searches organized by Solomon, friends, family and Terry’s firm in the Puget Sound area and along the I-5 corridor during the past few months. Police have also conducted searches of many local parks and other sites of

interest. Terry said that he and Solomon have given 125 media interviews, nine of which were national. “We want … to thank this community, the media, law enforcement, and the multiple and wonderful volunteers who have come from all walks of life to help us search for Sky,” said Terry. Volunteers posted 3,500 posters during a period of one month in Bellevue, Redmond, Issaquah and Kirkland. Using the assistance of Search and Seek, the group has been able to put up 2,000 posters on I-5 from Seattle to Gresham, Ore.

How should Kirkland pay for the Eastside Rail Corridor? Citizen opinion survey provides “quick read” on preferred ways to pay for the “Kirkland Segment” of the corridor By Dave Asher and Amy Walen


irkland is on a path to buy the “Kirkland Segment” of the Eastside Rail Corridor as a first step in completing the long-planned crossKirkland Trail. Faced

with possibilities that the corridor might be sold off piecemeal to speculators or others, Kirkland negotiated an extremely favorable price ($5 million for 5.75 miles) that will ensure our community can plan the future of nearly 6 miles of

prime real estate. As we go through our “due diligence” investigation prior to completing the purchase, we would like your opinion on preferred ways to pay for the corridor. Below, is a web page where you can provide your input. In December, the Kirkland City Council voted unanimously to investigate the purchase because the corridor is a wise investment in Kirkland’s

A recent study co-authored by Evergreen Healthcare neurologist Dr. Pinky Agarwal finds good news for coffee drinkers: consuming caffeinated coffee may significantly reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease in some men and women depending on their genetics, according to research recently published by the Public Library of Science. According to the study, researchers identified a connection between coffee’s protective qualities and a gene known as GRIN2A, which regulates brain signals that control movement and behavior. On average, heavy coffee drinkers were found to have 27 percent lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, regardless of the genes they carry. The risk was even less for heavy coffee drinkers who carry a specific variation of GRIN2A. They have 59 percent less chance of developing the disease, according to the research. Parkinson’s disease, which affects more than 50,000 Americans each year, is a progressive disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement. Symptoms,

which are most common in those over 50, often include tremors, muscle tension and changes in speech or gait. “Researchers have long studied the relationship between coffee and Parkinson’s disease with results often showing that all people do not benefit equally from consuming varying amounts of caffeinated coffee. Through this study, we have proven the benefits of using genetic evidence to determine new risk factors for Parkinson’s,” said Dr. Agarwal. “We think the results will contribute to more personalized treatment

for and prevention of this disease.” Dr. Agarwal, a neurologist at Evergreen Hospital’s Booth Gardner Parkinson’s Care Center in Kirkland, co-authored the study alongside a team of nationally recognized specialists within a range of fields including oncology, epidemiology, neurology, genetics and environmental health studies. Dr. Agarwal has been a principal researcher on numerous clinical trials and worked previously as director of Clinical Research at The Colorado Neurological Institute.

House passes bill that could end HCC By Carrie Wood

The Washington state House of Representatives approved a bill late Feb. 9 that could bring an end to the Houghton Community Council (HCC). State Rep. Larry Springer’s House Bill 2610 to end state authorization for community municipal corporations passed by a vote of 56-40. There are only two community councils in the state – one in Houghton and the East Bellevue Community Council. Community councils exercise veto power over city government on land-use decisions. Several members of the HCC spoke against the bill CRIME

This week’s…


Police Blotter Between Feb. 3-12, the Kirkland Police Department reported 758 traffic violations (12 DUIs), 45 alarm calls, 26 car accidents, 18 noise complaints, 22 thefts, nine car prowls, 20 domestic violence calls, 11 calls for harassment, 21 acts of fraud, 19 calls of a disturbance, eight calls for illegal substances and 19 calls of civil disturbance. At least 55 people were arrested.

before the Local Government Committee on Jan. 27. Before the House vote on Feb. 9, Kirkland Reps. Springer and Deb Eddy spoke in favor of the measure. Springer said the bill would end a “43-year-old anachronism” and would “lessen the burden” on local government. Eddy cited the Growth Management Act as her main reason for supporting the bill. “What happens is that in these two areas that have community councils, those folks are not subject, then, to the same limitations on development that all the other citizens of these areas are,” said Eddy. “So we’ve known since 1990 that we would have to sunset the councils, it is time for this body to do so,

I ask for a yes vote.” But Elsie Weber, who has been an HCC member for nearly 23 years, said the community council has strived over the years to keep the neighborhood livable. “It’s pleasant to drive through our area and we’ve worked hard for that.” She also said the agreement between the City of Kirkland and Houghton that was made many years ago should be honored. “I don’t care how old the agreement is, it still functions as it’s supposed to,” said Weber. “If I shake my hand and say, ‘okay, I’m going to do this,’ that’s a binding contract.” more story online…

can elevate that special day from a cookie-cutter event to an intimately beautiful affair. Here are four fun and budget-friendly ideas to create a wedding that is anything but generic: Snip and Style-Arrangements by professional florists can easily take a big chunk out of the budget. Instead, the wedding party can be enlisted to help create floral decor for the wedding. There are a number of free online tutorials that offer detailed how-to instructions on choosing seasonal blooms and arranging everything from elegant centerpieces to bridal bouquets. Personal touches to the floral arrangements may be added by incorporating favorite flowers or purchasing the blooms from a local farmers’ market. Pick and Choose-To spend wisely, couples are also turning away from one-sizefits-all wedding packages and demanding more flexibility in the types of wedding resources available. For example, an array of hotel and event site offerings through the Weddings By Doubletree website provides couples with the flexible option of selecting essential components for their

wedding day without being tied to an all-inclusive plan. From mixing and matching options such as guest stays, reception celebrations and ceremony settings, couples can handpick amenities and services that fit their budget and wedding needs at more than 230 hotels and resorts worldwide. Eat and Drink-Family and friends can also be offered an inside look at the preferences, passions and experiences enjoyed by the happy couple.

ket from their hometown). For the aperitif, wine could be poured from a vineyard the couple likes to visit. For the main meal, dishes or drinks can be tailored to represent the cultural heritage of the couple (paella for the Spanish side of the family or vodka for the Russian side of the family). Weddings provide the chance to celebrate the special values and history of the couple, through small details that personalize the event and make the setting more intimate. Capture and Share-A professional photographer should certainly be considered for the most important portions of the wedding (ceremony, bridal party and family pictures, etc.); however, guests can help capture the rest of the special moments. Before the big day, family and friends can be asked to bring their digital cameras to document the memories, along with a few disposable digital cameras on hand for individuals who do not own or forget their cameras.

A Celebration of Weddings Diamonds are forever

For centuries, diamonds have been talismans of magic, passion and success. These fascinating stones hold inside a promise of eternity a billion years in the making: a deep romantic mystery lies within the heart of every stone. Once regarded as the “Tears of the Gods,” diamonds were thought to hold mysterious qualities and possess supernatural powers. Many myths and legends sur-

round diamonds. They have given rise to countless tales of heroic deeds and legends, of knightly valor and of enchanting magic. It is said that Cupid’s arrows were diamond tipped to provide them with their emotional power. The first engagement ring is be-

lieved to have been offered in the fifteenth century by the Archduke Maximilian of Austria. He presented a solitaire diamond when he asked for the hand of Marie de Bourgogne in marriage. Whatever the origin, the single-stone tradition has endured and flourished.

[ wedding from page10]

Richard Burton offered one of the biggest and most famous of diamonds to Elizabeth Taylor in 1969. The 69.42-carat “Taylor-Burton” is in the shape of a pear, and magazines all over the world ran with the story. Many such famous legends of love, from yesterday and today, are bound closely to the beauty of the diamond.

A free online photo service prior to the wedding can provide the couple, the wedding party and guests with the link to upload, download and share their photos after the special day. Printing costs will be slashed in half and everyone can immediately and automatically have a vast selection of images to choose from for their wedding scrapbooks. Handcrafted wedding touches can turn a cookie-cutter event into a one-of-a-kind wedding to remember.
