Fire Station 22 is hot topic of potential Bothell annexation By Andy Nystrom anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

Fire District 1 Commissioner Richard Schrock knows full well that the city of Bothell has the right to put annexation back on the ballot, and thousands of unincorporated Snohomish County residents have the right to vote on it in the April 17 special election. However, Schrock and fellow commissioners David Chan and Bob Meador voiced their disapproval of an estimated 22,000 people potentially being

annexed into Bothell at a meeting held Monday night at the fire district’s Everett headquarters. If annexation passes — which it failed to do so in last November’s election — the trio feels Bothell can’t fully staff and maintain Fire Station 22, which would become part of the city. With about 30 people — both for and against annexation — on hand at the meeting, the commissioners voted to reject Bothell’s interlocal agreement to [ more annex page 10 ]

Kenmore, developer terminate agreement for Village project By Andy Nystrom anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

One of Nancy Ousley’s first duties in her new job as assistant city manager in 2007 was to attend a council meeting. That evening, Kenmore and Urban Partners signed a development agreement for the Kenmore Village by the Lake Project. Two weeks ago, Ousley was on hand to witness the termination of that agreement with the developer, also known as RECP/UP Kenmore, LP. “The economy had a big

It was a mutual decision and also an amicable one.” In a statement from RECP/UP Kenmore, LP, [ more develop page 7]

Accepting Rachel’s Challenge Bothell students’ emotions flow during presentation By Andy Nystrom anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

Toward the end of the March 2 Rachel’s Challenge assembly at Skyview Junior High, presenter Jonathan Oliver asked students to close their eyes, bow their heads and focus for a minute on their lives. The throng of students from Skyview and Canyon Creek, Fernwood and Crystal Springs elementaries sat quiet in the darkened gym and took Oliver’s advice to heart. They had just experienced the story of Rachel Joy Scott, who was the first person of 13 killed at the Columbine High tragedy on April 20, 1999. She was 17. Through heart-wrenching and inspirational video interviews and words from Oliver, the students learned of Scott’s wish to start a chain reaction of kindness and compassion, which she wrote about in a school essay. Oliver asked people if they lost a family member or friend, and noted that being a Rachel’s Challenge presenter has “truly impacted my life to make me a better person.” During the assembly, Oliver offered the students five challenges: look for the best in others, treat others the way you want to be treated, choose positive influences, speak words of kindness and not cruelty and forgive yourself and to forgive others. Skyview Principal Dawn Mark said that part of Rachel’s Challenge is to change a school culture, to get at the heart of ha-

we’re going to challenge our students to be a part of that chain reaction,” said Mark, who participated in the program at her former school, Ferndale High, and saw a positive change in the students there. Skyview counselor Michael Rhyne and Bothell police officer Louise Muro helped bring the challenge to Skyview, as well. One-hundred student ambassadors took part in the training and will become the core of change at Skyview, Mark said. [ more rachel page 10 ]

As she recalled the accident, Tina noted that four cars were involved, including one driver who knocked another car into the Fischers’ white Lexus SUV. Their vehicle was totaled and they’ve since purchased another one — this time in red, because they felt white was an unlucky color since the SUV was rear-ended about a month before the I-405 wreck. No one was seriously injured that day, and Tina praised the firefighters and rescue workers for their stellar work in tending to those involved in the crash. Bothell firefighter Kelly Cross was first on the scene and organized the award presenta-

tion. One driver also came to their aid by pulling open the SUV door and getting the family out. “They really made this horrible experience so much nicer in the sense that they knew what to do and they looked after us,” said Tina, noting that the Fischers were transported to Evergreen Medical Center in Kirkland to get checked out. (Will, James and Tina suffered minor scrapes and bruises.) “For me, it’s one of those reminders that one second, something can just totally alter the course of events in your life and you have no real control sometimes on that. We were so lucky,” Tina concluded.

● qUOTE OF NOTE:

“Will was very upset, but very brave and very concerned about his brother and me.” — Tina Fischer on her son’s heroic actions following their car accident

Editorial

People should know what’s going on with their government Citizens should be aware of — and opposed to — House Bill 2801 and the provisions that would allow local governments to cease publishing public notices in their local newspapers. The presumed cost savings to local government is in fact false economy — there is a hidden and very dangerous cost. In trying to save money, local governments would curtail access to the legislative process, and ensure that fewer – rather than more – citizens know what their representatives are up to. The publishing of public notices in newspapers of record dates to 1789, when the first Congress required publication of its bills, orders, resolutions and votes in at least three generally available newspapers. The founders recognized that government should not be the gatekeepers of its own information. So their purpose was to require government to report its actions to citizens in a medium independent of government influence or control: the newspaper. It was good policy then, and it remains good policy today. Publishing legal notices in a newspaper of record ensures that decisions related to public debt, ordinances and laws, zoning, taxation and quality of life — all matters of compelling and perpetual public interest — are made with transparency. Legal notices empower the public to get involved in the process. And they contribute to a reservoir of archived material in a form that cannot be altered, changed, hacked, hidden or manipulated after the fact. This would simply not be true of notices published exclusively online. In publishing public notices in newspapers of record,

local government acknowledges that government itself carries the burden of keeping citizens informed, and that it will not shift that burden to the citizens themselves to go hunting for information. To that end, the local, general-interest newspaper remains the vehicle with the widest reach to the widest cross-section of the community. And we can prove it. Sound Publishing, the owner of this newspaper, alone reaches 700,000 Washington households through our print publications. Our colleagues from newspaper organizations around the state maintain commensurately broad distribution within their own communities. This is not “theoretical” reach, a “potential” audience that may or may not find its way to notices posted on a government website. This is actual reach, to readers who are active and interested and engaged in the community around them – and most certainly in local government affairs. Not all citizens have computers, or smartphones, and not all have access to the web. Indeed, there are cost barriers to entry into, and participation in, today’s world of digital communication.

But anyone — everyone — can at any time go down to the public library or the coffee shop, pick up the community newspaper and find out through the public notices what their government is up to. Affordable, egalitarian and very popular, general interest newspapers provide precisely what government needs most — a direct and demonstrable conduit to its citizens. This issue really comes down to a philosophical question: Should government take its information to the people, or should government make the people come looking for that information, through a maze of agency and departmental websites? We believe — and we are confident Washington citizens agree — that government at ALL levels has an affirmative obligation to take its information to the people — to make that extra effort, to ensure that public notices are not just “available,” but also widely seen and widely read. House Bill 2801 flouts that obligation, and it should be rejected. The Legislature had the wisdom to dismiss similar legislation last session, and should demonstrate that same wisdom today.

Addressing education in our state

The article by Rosemary McAuliffe and letter by Camille Brady in the March 2 Bothell-Kenmore Reporter deserve a response. I suggest Rosemary and the legislature watch the documentary movie “Waiting for Superman” to understand the union’s opposition to charter schools and know how superior they can be and stop the rhetoric. Let parents choose. Our system is broken and Rosemary and other legislatures will not acknowledge the elephant in the room, the teachers union, protecting by seniority and tenure poor teachers and bad teachers who are retired on the job. How many Northshore teachers have been fired in the last five years? Zero? One? Two? Parents of junior-high students can give you a list of 12 or more that should be gone, probably more than 100 in the district. Nowhere in the article has Rosemary addressed this major problem, which should be a No. 1 priority, but is ignored due to the powerful Washington Education Association. In Washington state, education is politics and the kids are in the middle suffering. It is not about enough money like the politicians state, but about union domination of Washington’s education system. They hold

it hostage with the legislature’s support. It is time to change representatives if they do not fix this problem NOW. It is why we sent them to Olympia. In the Northshore district in the last school board election, the union contributed more than $5,000 each to B-Z Davis and Janet Quinn to get them on the board to maintain a pro union status. Davis indicated she would spend $10,000 on her campaign, for a nopay job! • Camille challenges Richard Pelto to get the facts. I would ask her how many of the teachers earning “$65,469 per year” (180 days of teaching or $363 per day) with advanced degrees have them in the discipline they are teaching. Studies indicate having master or doctor degrees do not make better teachers. It is a ruse to get higher salaries and retirements perpetuated by the union. Northshore has the second highest average teachers’ salaries and first staff salaries in the state. With benefits, Northshore teachers average $78,400 per year ($435 per day) not $65,469, Camille. Spending more money per student also does not improve performance; it is caring, committed, superior teachers that make the difference. Utah is a right-to-work state, which has much lower teacher salaries. Salt Lake City has higher student performance results and a more efficient education system. Why? They do not keep poor teachers and

strive for excellence and do not accept mediocre performance; teachers are challenged to maintain performance and compete to keep their jobs. I think Camille needs to get the facts and know who the good teachers are and not defend the poor ones. All teachers are not equal. Superior teachers need to be identified and paid more and the poor teachers need to be replaced. Teachers should not receive more money if their advanced degrees are not in their field of teaching and the money used to reward superior teachers. Students/ parents need to evaluate their teachers and teachers their principals for merit pay so the district can know how to evaluate the effectiveness of each teacher. Parents need to be a part of the evaluation process. It is time to challenge the union (that is not for kids, but teachers) — they are the problem and our legislature lets them do it because they buy their support through political donations to electing them. They need to cut the department of education in Olympia by half and use the money for incentives for the best teachers. We need excellent teachers, less staff and more bang for the buck (results). It is past time to get tough with the legislature to fix our broken education system or replace them, our kids’ future is too important.

Band on the rise: Group with Inglemoor High ties releases ‘Love Songs’ By Carrie Wood cwood@kirklandreporter.com

Sometimes, love stings. Love can send you singing, falling and even apologizing. Inglemoor High alum Peter McMurray is no stranger to these feelings, and that’s why he wrote some songs about love for his pop rock band, Rising Union. The band’s debut album, “Love Songs,” was released on Feb. 14 — Valentine’s Day. McMurray, who is the lead songwriter and singer for the band, wrote many of the album’s songs when he attended Inglemoor. An early version of the group won the school’s 2008 Battle of the Bands. “When you’re in high school, your biggest life concerns are things like relationships,” said McMurray, who is now 20 and currently studying Music Industry at Northwest University. The album, which is signed with Tate Music Group, offers several perspectives about love: breaking up, loving somebody who doesn’t love you back and apologizing. One song, “King of Awareness Day,” says that valentines are nothing more than glue and construction paper. “Every time Valentine’s Day comes around, there are

Kenmore-based band Rising Union features Peter McMurray, Beth Ross, Kira Johnson, Doug Stewart, Andrew Wilde, Garrett Congdon and Colin Walter Votteler. The band released “Love Songs” on Valentine’s Day. Courtesy photo certain people who get really upset and touchy,” said McMurray about the song. “So with that song, we try to reach out to people like that. You shouldn’t let Valentine’s Day tell you what it means to love. You don’t have to be in a relationship or love someone to understand what love means. You don’t need another person — you can take pride in just being alone.” And sometimes just as messy as finding the right love is creating a band, McMurray has learned. He started out messing around

with the idea of forming a band when he was at Finn Hill Junior High. “My friends and I decided it would be really cool to start a band. We played electric guitars and electric drums. We didn’t even have a real drum set,” said McMurray. “We wanted to be a punk rock band, like Blink 182. But that eventually changed.” After many of his friends left the band for other endeavors over the years, McMurray finally got serious when he was a senior. The seven-member Ris-

ing Union now consists of McMurray, Beth Ross (violin, pitch percussion), Kira Johnson (lead female vocals), Doug Stewart (keyboard — Inglemoor alum and current University of Washington, Bothell, student), Andrew Wilde (bass — current Inglemoor student), Garrett Congdon (lead guitar — UW-Bothell student) and Colin Walter Votteler (drums, percussion and harmonica — Inglemoor alum). “It’s pretty serious now,” said McMurray. “Most of the band wants to do something musical for a career, so we all have some investment on wanting to make this actually succeed.” The band’s biggest challenge so far is just getting heard, and McMurray hopes that’s where his business background will help out. Rising Union has played at the Lyons’ Den in Bothell, several churches and most recently for a human-trafficking awareness concert at Northwest University. McMurray says the band’s genre is hard to define. “We try and be versatile. Most people compare us to Death Cab for Cutie (indie pop-rock) and Gungor (Christian folk-rock).”

But what really sets Rising Union apart is that each song sounds completely different. “So we have one song that’s like tango, another that’s 1930s swing, so we have people get up and swing dance during the concert,” said McMurray. “We have a waltz and folk hoedown-type style with people stomping their feet. We try and mix it up so it’s interesting and it’s not the same thing over and over again.” Most importantly, he says, he writes lyrics with meaning. “I think music can be a very powerful and effective form of communication. I think you can express things clearer through music than you can express otherwise.” He said the band chose the name Rising Union primarily for the meaning behind “union” as a symbol of joining together. “People can feel so alone and broken up and separated,” he said. “So when people listen to our music, I want them to think, ‘Man, this person gets me.’ It’s good to know that you’re not alone in these kinds of situations.” For more information about Rising Union, visit http://risingunion.tmgartist.com

Love Your Pet, License Your Pet Love your pet, license your pet. It may seem simple, but it’s true! Licensing your pet is easy and gives your pet an inexpensive insurance policy for its safety and protection. Plus, it is the law. King County pet licenses are required for all dogs and cats eight weeks of age or older. A pet license identifies and protects your dog or cat in case they get lost by reuniting found pets more quickly with their owner. In addition, it provides longer care periods for found, licensed animals taken to the animal shelter. License fees support the return of hundreds of lost pets to their homes and help families adopt thousands of homeless pets to new families every year. Pet license fees also fund investigation of animal neglect or cruelty, spay/neuter programs, and community education services. Annual pet licenses for spayed or neutered cats and dogs cost $30, while licenses for unaltered pets cost $60. Discounts are available for disabled and senior residents, as well as for those with juvenile pets up to six months old. Kenmore and King County have instituted a no tolerance fine for unlicensed pets, with fines ranging from $125 for a spayed or neutered pet to $250 for an unaltered pet. Residents may purchase pet licenses online at kingcounty.gov/pets or in person at over 100 locations in King County. In Kenmore, pet licenses can be purchased at City Hall, 18120 68th Ave NE.

Jenny and Travis Counsell of Bothell were expecting their first child in June 2009. In her ninth month of pregnancy, Jenny was diagnosed with a small brain aneurysm. After her daughter, Taya, was born by C section two days later, additional tests revealed a 3-by-5-millimeter weak spot in the artery behind her right eye. At 31, and in good health, it was decided to take a wait-and monitorapproach. In December 2011, Jenny began feeling light-headed. After symptoms did not subside, she went to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where it was decided with advice from neurosurgeon Laligam Sekhar to do a procedure to clip off the aneurysm. Dr. Sekhar has 34 years of medical expertise, is a University of Washington professor and president of the Washington State Association of Neurological Surgeons. The eight-hour procedure by Dr. Sekhar and his team was successfully completed on Jan. 13. Jenny spent two days in intensive care and seven days total on Harborview’s third west floor. “Life is so precious now and I appreciate family time at the park, reading my daughter her bedtime story and date nights with my

Jenny and Travis Counsell of Bothell enjoy a day at the park with daughter, Taya. Courtesy photo husband,” said Jenny, who visited her doctor recently and had a CT scan, which determined that all is well inside her brain. She will be able to return to work soon. “I’m so blessed to have known about this aneurysm in order to take action and be able to start a new chapter in my life. I’m forever grateful to Dr. Sekhar and his amazing team.” The story could end here, but it is about much more than a successful brain surgery. On the day Jenny went in for surgery, people from coast to coast and even out of the country were saying prayers for her. Her pastor at Eastlake Community

Church and the congregation sent prayers up for a successful outcome. Jenny organized a two-page schedule for close friends and family who were going to care for her daughter and their two dogs. The schedule included medical information, release forms and phone numbers for all six people involved. In addition, she taped a bedtime story in her “mommy voice” for Taya since they would likely be apart for many days. She wrote personal cards and letters to her husband, parents and close friends that were given to them on surgery day. Jenny learned of an or-

ganization called CaringBridge: an online resource to connect families going through a serious health event. Prior to surgery, she set up the site with her story, photos and a place for guests to leave comments. In the first week, there were more than 1,000 hits. As Jeff in California put it, “Lisa, I, and my mom are glued to this site everyday looking for news about you.” Each evening, a family member read the special words left that day for Jenny by friends and family. Laura Slater, Jenny’s younger sister, flew out from Milwaukee, Wis., and spent five days and four nights by her side. When asked to describe her sister in three words, Laura replied, “Courageous, strong and brave.” Jenny’s well-planned schedule went out the window on the second day of her hospital stay. Several factors, including the snow storm and a very sick little Taya, prevented Jenny’s parents from helping with Taya’s care. Joyce Olsen, Travis’ mom, took care of the sick little 2 ½-year-old for a week. Joyce, who lives in Edmonds, drove to a Lynnwood pharmacy in eight inches of snow for a prescription. Her priceless reward from her granddaughter were the words, “Grandma, you are the best Grandma in the whole wide

world.” Travis, Jenny’s husband, works full time as a contractor with RAFN; his day starts at five and he is at work by six, and he has taken on most of the household chores and care of their daughter. He is thankful for the help from his mom and also friend Torrie Caulk. “We are truly blessed and I am forever thankful! This has made me realize how people are willing to lend a hand and help us through this tough time. My faith has been strengthened considerably. I believe finding the aneurysm was a miracle,” he said. One of the family’s cousins, Michele McGraw, offered and set up a resource called www.takethemameal. com. As Michele put it, “Jenny is confident and capable, and I knew it would be hard for her to say ‘yes’ to being cared for. She has a great circle of friends and family members who wanted to do something. I was hoping Jenny could spend her energy healing. By arranging meals, we can shower her with our own family recipes and prepare them with love. There is so much healing power in that.” The meals are continuing and scheduled for several more weeks. Diandra DaviesUttech arranged housecleaning, dog sitting and

driving. Jenny is employed as human-resources coordinator at Corbis, a global company headquartered in downtown Seattle that licenses the rights to photographs, footage and other visual media. Her boss, Amber Ushka, director of North American HR & Global Recruiting, said that on the day of surgery, they had a text chain to be able to keep news flowing to all members of the team around the world. Amber also had this to say about Jenny, “She is a creative thinker and works to find solutions to issues that are a win-win for everyone. She does everything with a smile and a collaborative spirit. Jenny rocks.” Among her many activities, Jenny and her mom arrange a “Ladies Game Nite” once a month that includes both generations. For February, the group held a “hat” party and donated their usual $5 buy-in to CaringBridge; they raised $200 and celebrated Jenny’s continuing recovery. Jenny has signed on as a spokesperson for CaringBridge in the Seattle area, and a video is in the works profiling her story for their Web page. Jenny and Travis are excited about their future, which includes a delayed trip to Cabo San Lucas, and eventually another baby.

www.bothell-reporter.com • www.kenmore-reporter.com [ develop from page 1] they said: “We thoroughly enjoyed working with the city and shared their vision for a downtown revitalization in the heart of Kenmore. While this decision certainly did not come easily, it’s the appropriate one for both RECP/UP Kenmore, LP, and the city, given the economic downturn that began in 2008.” The developer’s plans called for about 300 residential units, 77,000 square feet of retail space and 23,000 square feet of public space on the 9.6-acre site at the northwest corner of Northeast 181st Street and 68th Avenue Northeast. Ousley noted that the city has agreed to pay RECP/ UP Kenmore, LP, $700,000 to halt the agreement. In breaking down the numbers, she said that $519,438 represents money that the

developer has already made in payments and reimbursements ($440,000 paid to the city in accordance with the agreement; a $79,438 reimbursement for design and construction of angle parking on the Northeast 181st Street frontage). The agreement fees included a $250,000 initial earnest payment in July 2007; $100,000 total annual payments of $50,000 in December 2010 and 2011 per the revised agreement; $50,000 to compensate the city for costs of additional planning and permit-review resources to expedite the permit review; and $40,000 in 2006 to compensate the city for removing the site from the open market and to prepare the cost of the exclusive negotiating agreement. Currently, Kenmore Fitness, Espresso Works and Great Play do business in

Kenmore Village, and their leases have been transferred to the city. Sheila Roark and her husband, Jesse, opened Espresso Works in December of 2010 and are hopeful for the future of the Kenmore Village site. “Whether it be the city or whether it be a new owner, I’d like to see it spruced up, refaced, to get some fresh tenants in — an anchor tenant, absolutely. We hope to stay for the remainder of our lease, for at least two more years and beyond, even once it gets completely redone,” Sheila said last week. Added Kenmore Fitness owner Tom Dooley, who’s been in business since March of 2004: “All I can do is hope that whatever happens will be in a manner that allows me to stay in business and bring additional business into the area.

[10] March 16, 2012 [ rachel from page 1] “(It will change) how we treat one another, how we look at one another and how we think about one another,” said Mark, noting that principals from other local schools are looking into bringing Rachel’s Challenge to their campuses. Rachel’s Challenge student ambassadors from Skyview came away from the assembly with eyes wide open to making a difference at their school. “It was really touching and it showed Rachel’s impact, and I think it will help us make our school a better place,” eighthgrader Leah Dooley said. “It was strong. I think everybody took at least a little bit of it in and now they feel better about themselves and hopefully they’ll treat other people better,” seventh-grader J.R. Plourd added. “(It’s important) to say good things about people instead of bad things because it’s kind of easy to have stuff slip out of your mouth and say something bad about somebody. So if everybody can work on that, that would make a difference.” Oliver, who’s been involved with Rachel’s Challenge for almost three years, ran two stu-

He noted that Rachel’s Challenge reaches across to all students despite their financial backgrounds, demographics, race and more. In order to make an impact with students, Oliver feels he has to be authentic in his delivery. “It has to be sincere and from the heart because it’s a real-life family, it’s a real-life story and it’s a real-life person,” said Oliver, adding that it’s a great responsibility to be on board with the challenge. “People want to carry that torch within their lives, within their communities and within their schools. That’s what I feel — that’s what drives me and that’s what makes me want to wake up and do it every morning.”

[ annex from page 1] keep Fire Station 22 open for a minimum of five years and staff it with firefighters and paramedics. The agreement states that if Bothell’s promise falls short, it will pay the fire district $100,000 in mutual-aid costs. And if annexation fails in the election, the city asks the fire district to do the same for Bothell if it can’t keep the station open. One of their reasons for not signing the agreement was, according to Schrock, that they don’t feel $100,000 guarantees the $2 million worth of service it would take to keep the station open. Chan added that the fire district has the funds to keep 22 open and doesn’t plan to close the station. He is also concerned about what

will happen to the station after the five-year period ends if Bothell takes it over. The commissioners said they would notify Bothell of their decision through a letter. “The rejection of a commitment by Fire District 1 to keep Station 22 open speaks for itself. Bothell has not only committed to keeping Station 22 open, but has also put money behind that guarantee,” said Bothell City Manager Bob Stowe.

It had been 15 long, arduous years since the Cougars’ program had last made it to state – back at the old Kingdome – and head coach Ron Bollinger, along with his players, relished the opportunity to finally play at the Tacoma Dome. “It was a great experience for them, it’s one they can talk about the rest of their life – ‘I played in the state tournament,’” Bollinger said. “We were able to get everybody in over the two days. We didn’t finish like we wanted, and right now it hurts, but when they look back on it, they’ll be talking about it for years to come.”

OFFENSIVE OUTBURST

After getting blown out 79-45 by No. 1-ranked A.C. Davis from Yakima during Thursday’s state opener, the Cougars brought their game for Friday’s do-or-die contest against the Rams.

Bothell guard Perrion Callandret goes after a loose ball during the Cougars’ 83-74 loss to Mount Rainier earlier this month at the Tacoma Dome. Making the program’s first basketball state tournament appearance in 15 years, the Cougars lost two hard-fought games to get eliminated before the trophy round. Tim Watanabe, Bothell Reporter With the Rams playing a tough zone defense that made it a challenge for guards Zach LaVine and Perrion Callandret to drive to the basket, the Cougars had no choice but to rely on their perimeter shooting – and one young sharpshooter stepped up in a big way. Sophomore Kellen

Webster couldn’t miss from downtown in the second quarter, firing up four 3-pointers that all found the net as Bothell was able to hang tough with Mount Rainier’s fast-paced offense to the tune of a 35-35 tie at halftime. The third-quarter was all Rams, however, as they

shot 9 of 17 in the period, including 12 points alone from junior guard Caden Rowland. Despite finishing with 26 points in the fourth quarter, which included a run of seven straight field goals without a miss, the Cougars could not keep pace with the Rams, who converted key

CougAR BOYS

Head coach Ron Bollinger had five departing seniors on his team this year, and took a moment to remember each of them and their contributions to the program. Riley Wick: “He had a great end of the season, he was one of our captains and a leader on the team. He hit some big shots for us down the stretch.” Derek Pinder: “Our spark plug on defense... He always gives us energy.” Caleb Nealy: “The big kid. Had some really good minutes, especially against Skyline. He was a big factor in the two games where we beat Roosevelt.” Matt Henry: “Always a positive guy in practice, when we got him in the game, it was fun.” Prince Lacey: “Had his season cut short with a broken foot... (we) missed that three-ball that he could bring to us.”

free throws down the stretch to keep it at least a twopossession game. “The effort was good,” said Bollinger, adding that it was Rowland’s 20 second-half points that put the nail in the Cougars’ coffin. “It’s good to say you made it down [ more hoops page 12 ]

plan to spend more time together off the court, and get to “know each other a little bit better,” according to LaVine. With as many first-year players as the team had this year, that may be the magic elixir for the deep and talented Cougars to finally bring home that state title in 2013. “We want to start how we finish, pretty much,” Callandret said. “Hopefully Kellen can hit big shots like he did today, that helped us a lot.

eight of his 11 3-point attempts. LaVine added 17 and Callandret 12. “He was one away from the tournament record (of nine),” remarked Bollinger on Webster’s amazing display of perimeter shooting. “He played huge for us today and kept us in the game.”

The long-awaited “Field of Dreams” at Cedar Park Christian School (CPCS) in Bothell celebrated a fine grand opening last Friday afternoon, as the Eagles’ boys soccer team shut out Life Christian, 6-0, in a nonleague game. The multi-use athletic field, a $1.5 million-dollar project for CPCS, enables

the Eagles’ 1,300-student body to have a dedicated place to play soccer, football, baseball, softball and track. In the first official contest on the new field, which broke ground last spring, Michael Holmquist opened up the scoring in the 17th minute, scoring on an open net off of Conner MacDonald’s assist, with Steven Dressler recording a hat trick (25th, 51st and 71st minutes)
