Lacrosse group, county agree on $1.8 million field upgrade BY MATT PHELPS mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

T

he King County Council unanimously approved a $1.8 million 30-year plan to partner with Kirkland Youth Lacrosse (KYL) to upgrade a popular field in Big Finn Hill Park in Kirkland’s Juanita neighborhood Monday. The upgrades will include a new drainage system, a

synthetic field, the installation of bleachers, a perimeter fence and new lighting. A small field house will also be built for storage. Under the plan, Kirkland Lacrosse would get priority use of the field and pay for all of the upgrades. “This is all coming from private donations and the county will not be putting in any money,” said KYL president Steve Lytle, noting

that construction will begin in June. Although the park is located in Kirkland, it is run by King County. The project is a part of the King County Parks’ Community Partnerships program. KYL plans to pay for the upgrades through donations, rental fees the county will allow the group to charge for a limited number of hours and grants related to the partnership

Clean Sweep

program. The group has already secured $150,000 from the state, by Sen. Andy Hill, for upgrades. The field will be primarily used for lacrosse during KYL’s season from February to May. The improvements will also make the field more accessible for soccer teams. The project’s cost has grown $300,000 since the original proposal last year. [ more FIELD page 7 ]

Council halts development again Moratorium on BN-zoned properties, Potala project extended BY MATT PHELPS mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

The Kirkland City Council voted unanimously to extend the development moratorium on BN-zoned properties for six more months on Tuesday night. But the 6-0 vote was accompanied with apprehension from a few council members. “I continue to be con-

cerned that emergency moratoriums reflect poorly on the city. They decrease the willingness of people to invest here because of the perception of risk they create,” said Councilman Toby Nixon, who was not on the council when the original moratorium was imposed on Nov. 15. “Moratoriums should never be necessary.” Nixon ultimately voted for

the moratorium to “give the Planning Commission and the council time to finish the work we have started.” Mayor Joan McBride, who voted against the original moratorium, echoed his sentiment: “I believe that we are close to a solution … With the belief that this will not take six months, I will vote in favor of extending the [ more COUNCIL page 10 ]

Kirkland consignment store Boomerang brings back ‘cute kids’ clothes’ to parents BY MATT PHELPS mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

Nearly 70 volunteers swept, raked and cleaned downtown Kirkland streets during the annual Clean Sweep event on Saturday morning. The Kirkland Downtown Association, Vince Isaacson with Lake Street Diamond Co., and Kirkland resident Patty Tucker organized the annual event, aimed at making city streets sparkle and shine. Volunteers included many youth, such as Lake Washington High School Key Club and Loyalty Club members. Following the event, the group had lunch, courtesy of Qdoba Mexican Grill in Kirkland.

Anyone who has small kids knows that buying clothes can get pricey. Most kids can fit into a pair of pants or shoes about as long as it takes for the season to change. And if the genders are different, forget about hand-me-downs. Kirkland resident Shannon Barnes has spent the past 16 years shopping for her two children at various consignment and secondhand stores. But she has taken that thrifty idea and opened Boomerang Kids Consignment in the Juanita neighborhood of Kirkland on April 23. “Originally, I did it so it would take a little less out of the budget,” said Barnes, who has a background in retail management.

“I love cute kids’ clothes. So when my kids got too big I had to open my own store so I could still play with cute kids’ clothes.” Boomerang Kids Consignment, located at 11634 98th Ave. N.E., caters primarily to

young kids: Newborn to size 16. The store consigns clothes according to the season, but will sell a lot of everyday wear year round – such as jeans, sweatshirts and of course in Washington, rain wear. [ more KIDS page 8 ]

tion that he has amassed during the past 40 years of collecting. “This is a lifelong passion of mine,” said Compton, who worked for nearly four decades as a chef. “I just collected, and collected, and collected, and always wanted to open a store. I kept it all in storage for years. I am just fulfilling a dream. There are a lot of people supporting me.” Vortex music carries used and new vinyl, CDs, DVDs, Blu Ray discs and Laser Discs, among other things. The Laser Discs are important to some collectors. “About every 20 years things cycle back through,” said Compton. “There is a lot of material that is not available on DVD.” One area that Vortex specializes in is concert DVDs and Laser Discs. Compton also has some imports and rare items that are out of print.

Daren Compton, owner of Vortex Music and Movies, stands in his store that just opened in the Totem Lake neighborhood in February. Vortex is the only independent music store on the Eastside. MATT PHELPS, Kirkland Reporter A big advantage that Vortex has is how close it is to I-405. “About 129,000 people see my sign every day,” said Compton about his Totem Lake location. “A lot of people see us from the freeway and come in. We get people who are visiting family at the hospital. Totem Lake needs a consortium of people to help the area.” Despite the visibility, Compton is trying to get the word out. “I go downtown (Kirkland) to an espresso bar and people are surprised we are here,” said Compton, who is married. “We have to educate people that we are here.” Compton has seen good traffic in the store and online at www.vortexmusicmovies. com. “My original thought was that the brick and mortar store would drive the website

but I am rethinking that because I think the web drives the business,”said Compton. “We have an active audience that orders online.” The website also has a group of bloggers who write about collecting, first experiences and other topics that have to do with popular music. Vortex has a heavy online presence on Facebook and Twitter. Compton said that although he grew up with classic rock like Led Zeppelin, the Beatles and The Who, he still enjoys contemporary bands. He said the average customer is in the 18-23 age demographic but he gets people from all generations. “I have brought in seniors and we play some easy listening from the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s,” said Compton, who last worked at Merrill Gardens as a chef.

Being a chef taught him to be resourceful and stick to a budget. “I worked for Nordstrom for 22 years and I learned the need for good customer service,” said Compton. He said that he plans to start having local artists come in and play at the store and sell more local music. He wants to touch on any need he sees in the community for music and movies. “I plan on being here to celebrate our 50th anniversary,” said Compton.

Don’t put jobs at risk for proposed Seattle stadium

T

he Port of Seattle and the Manufacturing Industrial Council recently raised an interesting $3 billion issue: a third sports stadium in the area of the Mariners’ and Seahawks’ facilities might cripple the marinecargo business along the Seattle waterfront. Why, you say, should we here on the Eastside care? Everyone in King County is part of the Port of Seattle district and our taxes support it. Equally, the success of the port is vital to the success of the region. As the groups sees it, a third stadium would add more congestion to an already-crowded corridor and threaten the ability to move goods in and out of the region. Seattle isn’t the only option to ship goods out of or in to the United States. The more difficult conditions here become, the more likely companies are to seek a different port. Just this month, The Port of Tacoma lured three shippers from Seattle – about 20 percent of the Seattle Port’s business – which will make Tacoma the biggest container port on Puget Sound by cargo volume. Okay, we know that another stadium won’t wipe out the Seattle Port’s $3 billion business. But, as Dave Gering,

head of the Manufacturing Industrial Council, says, “what part of $3 billion do you want to give up?” We’d prefer none of it. The problem with another stadium isn’t the stadium itself, but the do-nothing attitude on the part of Seattle to deal with congestion. Three overpasses were promised to deal with freight movement around the two stadiums we have now, but only one was built. Also, while Seattle has found the money to update its

bicycle master plan, it says it doesn’t have the money to update a freight-mobility plan. Perhaps Seattle is banking on everyone riding bikes to those football, baseball and basketball games. Or making it impossible to drive there. Seattle isn’t the only option for a basketball/hockey arena. Bellevue has several sites – one right on I-405 – that would do nicely. And it wouldn’t put $3 billion in jeopardy to build it.

I just want to let you know that I feel sorry for you and I believe that you love your children.

However, she’s never done what she promised, and I got really scared. I realized that I cannot trust her anymore, and she will never advocate for me and my children. I fired her because I realized that no one will care more about my children than their mother. And if you love your children I do not want you to give up on them because you are, after all, their mother! You are a beautiful, young, Ukrainian woman, and I know Ukrainians very well – they cannot live without their children, and for a woman to be deprived of parental rights is like having leprosy. Pull yourself up, stop crying, and think about your kids. Think about them not receiving birthday cards or Christmas presents from their mama and questioning themselves about what they have done so bad that mama does not want to see them. And know that not everyone hates you, and if you ever want to cry or talk about nothing, or get a coffee, give me a call. Know that you can fire your attorney even if she told you that she knows better what to do. You are not alone, and I will continue to pray for you and your children. And I hope that I will be safe as well as my kids.

Concrete-covered car leaves Kirkland woman frustrated Construction company attempts to fix mistake, runs into roadblock By Matt Phelps mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

I

t is difficult to drive around Kirkland and not come across some kind of road maintenance or building project. Most people don’t even think twice when they see construction equipment. So when an odd incident involving a sewer line construction project turned Kirkland resident Jackie Friedley’s car into a concrete mess on April 17 she was “stunned.” “When they said it was going to be $9,000 to repair my car I nearly fell through the phone,” said Friedley. Friedley was stopped on Kirkland Avenue in downtown Kirkland in the construction zone. She was taking her 2-year-old grandson Mikey to the library. While sitting in her car, with her grandson in the backseat, she looked in her rearview mirror to see a construction worker with his head inside the car behind her and having a laugh with a woman. Four other workers continued to perform the concrete pour as Friedley drove away in her Toyota

I called them (Diamond Detail) on Monday morning and they said ‘we got busy.’” When Freidley’s husband insisted that the car be taken to Toyota of Kirkland, Grider agreed. She also said that the incident has cost her three days of work trying to get the car fixed. On Sunday, she had no choice but to drive the car to a wedding. “My car looks like I never wash it,” said Freidley, noting she insisted that her husband park it in the back of the building. “I had to tell the story over and over again.” Freidley said her car, with just 41,000 miles, is com-

pletely paid off. She and her husband were planning to trade it in for a larger vehicle. “My mom had a stroke and I have to take care of her,” said Freidley, who is also in the process of adopting her grandson. Grider said that he has since received the $9,611 bill from Toyota and has submitted it to his insurance. He said this is the first time anything like this has happened to his company. “We poured a lot of concrete for that project, encasing all that pipe,” said Grider. “We did so much traffic control and this happened on the last day. I am trying my best to make this right, but it got to the point where I felt like there was nothing I could do to make it right.” He said that he has addressed the issue internally. “We hold our employees accountable,” said Grider, who added that his worker should not have had his head in the car behind Friedley. “We are getting perceived, because of this one incident that we are unprofessional, and we can’t have that.” As for Freidley, she still plans to trade in her Scion for a van – once everything is taken care of.

Car strikes, injures student By Carrie Wood cwood@kirklandreporter.com

A vehicle struck a 16-yearold Best High School student as he crossed the street near his school the morning of April 26. The student “darted” across the road at approximately 8 a.m. at the intersection of Northeast 53rd and 108th Avenue in Kirkland, said Kirkland police Lt. Mike Murray. “He wasn’t in the crosswalk and he came out kind of suddenly and the person driving the car couldn’t stop in time,” said Murray. “Witnesses said that the driver was going the speed limit and this kid just ran out and wasn’t in the crosswalk.” The boy sustained some injuries, though they didn’t appear life threatening, said Murray. “He was alert and awake and talking to the aid unit as they transported him to the emergency room,” said Murray, who didn’t know which hospital the boy was taken to. Kirkland police blocked off 108th Avenue for about half an hour while several aid and patrol cars responded to the accident.

Join QFC in the Battle to End Breast Cancer In July of this year Susan G. Komen for the Cure® will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its founding as a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and ending breast cancer forever. QFC is proud to again be the presenting sponsor of the Seattle Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure being held on Sunday, June 3rd, at the Seattle Center. Komen for the Cure has in some way touched every major breast cancer breakthrough in the last 29 years and has been associated with three Nobel Prize winners. Thanks to the many volunteers, sponsors and participants, the Komen organization has been able to raise and invest over $1.9 billion for breast cancer research, treatment and education. It has affiliate organizations in over 120 U.S. communities and relationships in 50 countries around the world. Of the money that Komen raises at its events, 75% stays in the local community for breast health education, breast cancer screening and treatment and other direct help. In 2011, Komen invested $93 million in local community programs, which provided for 700,000 breast health screenings and diagnostic procedures. The remaining 25% of funds raised support breast cancer research. Currently,

Komen manages nearly 760 active research grants totaling $300 million. Those grants provide funds for research in: • Early detection, diagnosis, prognosis •

Scientific model outcomes

Worldwide, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death among women. More than 1.6 million are diagnosed each year. One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed in her lifetime and breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among U.S. women 40 – 59. The work that Komen is doing to eradicate breast cancer is making a tremendous impact. In 2007, economists estimated that Komen funded research and programs saved 4,500 American lives. Between 1989 and 1999 the percentage of women

aged 40 and above getting annual mammograms rose from 54% to 71%. There are currently more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. Susan G. Komen for the Cure® has played a huge role in raising awareness and supporting research, treatment and education. If you would like to join QFC in supporting the valuable work of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® there are several ways you can do so. One way would be to join us at the Race for the Cure on June 3rd. Every QFC store has been asked to create a store team.

[ FIELD from page 1]

The extra money comes from a drainage revision and work to be done on the retaining wall. King County Parks Director Kevin Brown told the Reporter in June that the field is notorious for having cancellations due to field conditions. But those are problems that KYL deals with all the time. “We just don’t have adequate facilities to offer a good experience for the kids,” said Lytle. “More than half (of the fields) have been in four inches of mud (this season). We can’t continue to grow without more field space.” Lytle said they’ve worked with the Lake Washington School District and Kirkland Parks, but because there simply aren’t many fields in the area, it’s hard to get time and space. Many of the teams have to use partial fields when other teams are practicing, like sharing half a soccer field, or working on the edges of baseball fields. But Lytle said that it just doesn’t work as a long-term solution. The issue has become so bad that the teams are forced to practice in areas that aren’t even fields, like the grassy area behind the bleachers at Juanita High School. Lacrosse has grown in popularity on the Eastside and around Washington State during the past decade and advocates say that field access is not keeping up with the demand for the sport. Two years ago when the club started there were 34 players. Last season 182 turned out, and this year that number grew to about 225. KYL has received a lot of support from King County Council members. “As the representative for the Finn Hill neighborhood, I am pleased this public-private partnership to improve Big Finn Hill Park is moving forward,” said Councilman Bob Ferguson, co-sponsor of the legislation, who represents the area on the council. “As the father of young twins, I know how important parks and play fields are to fostering vibrant communities.” King County Councilwoman Jane Hague, who was a former representative of the Finn Hill area, was a primary sponsor for the proposal. “This initiative will make a huge contribution to our livability in both recreation and quality of life,” said Hague, who used to live on Finn Hill. “All involved have worked very hard to balance the needs of our student athletes while respecting the needs of neighbors that live near Big Finn Hill.” But not all Kirkland

residents are happy with the plan. The project has drawn objections from park neighbors due to the use of light standards, increased noise and traffic. Lytle said the objections that came from about 20 surrounding neighbors have dropped to about six or eight. “We’re not interested in having an abrasive relationship with the neighbors,” said Lytle. “They all have my email and they can contact me if they have more concerns.”

City gets AAA water/sewer bond rating Standard & Poor’s (S&P) Ratings Services affirmed its “AAA” rating, with a stable outlook, on the City of Kirkland’s outstanding water and sewer revenue bonds. The rating cites the system’s strong liquidity position and debt service coverage, a very diverse system (with the top 10 users contributing 4 percent of revenue),

a service area with aboveaverage wealth and income levels, and the community’s primarily residential “bedroom” nature, participating in the greater Seattle, Washington economy. The announcement is the result of a periodic review of the city’s bonds. Municipal utilities sell revenue bonds to support capital projects for utility infrastructure. Rating agencies “rate” the ability of the utilities to repay bond principal and interest.

“There is a lot more variety in a consignment store,” said Barnes. “In a retail store there is a theme for every season.” Consigned clothes are not confined clothes when it comes to style and they still keep up with the seasonal demands. Barnes said she has been pleasantly surprised by how the community has welcomed her. “I have received a tremendous amount of support from the community,” said Barnes, noting that the business is family owned and operated. She has received help from friends in creating her website at www.bkconsignment. com, designing the store’s logo, painting and redesigning the interior of the leased space, which used to house Blockbuster. She had a friend, Becca Bassingthwaighte, volunteer to design and paint a koala mural in the store. “I love this mural,” said Barnes. “… People seem excited I am here - I am excited. It has been a good time so far.” Barnes even visited Forget Me Not consignments a few months back, which is located just 20 blocks to the north on 100th Ave. N.E. She had been a customer and wanted to be courteous and let them know about her store. “They were very welcom-

ing,” said Barnes. “They asked me how they could help.” Forget Me Not is a broader clothing consignment store for kids and adults, that is also family owned. “I will send my customers up the road to them when they size out,” said Barnes, who’s 16-year-old daughter helps out around the store. She played around with several names before landing on the Boomerang idea. “I wanted something fun, kid related and memorable,” said Barnes. “It was my 10-year-old son that made the link between the boomerang going out and coming back (and the idea of consigning).” As with most consignment stores, Barnes takes client’s clothes and puts them up for sale for eight weeks. When they sell, she takes a percentage. In the seventh week of consignment the items are put on sale for 25 percent off. At eight weeks they go to 50 percent off. Consigners can decide to pick up the clothes and take them back at any time but must choose if the clothes will be donated or returned to the owner if they do not sell. Consigners have to sign a contract with Boomerang. Barnes said that she has signed a three-year lease in the space. One of the areas that the store might find a big

customer base is in used sports clothing. Barnes has first-hand experience with kids’ sports clothing. “Every year I have to go out and get that new under armor,” said Barnes. “It might take time for people in the community to find me for that.” She said that as with all of her items, they can’t have stains or holes and must be in good condition. “We won’t take anything that has been too well loved,” said Barnes. “We have to take items that are in season because we don’t have any storage.” She will make a small exception for sports pants when it comes to stains. “They start out white but if they have been worn once they will not remain white,” joked Barnes. She also sells various handcrafted items made for kids by community artists. “I am excited to have them,” said Barnes. “My mom was a weaver. I know how important it is to support this kind of stuff.” The store also carries some books, something that many kids consignment stores shy away from because they don’t resell for very much and take up a lot of space. “I am just so passionate about reading and kids that there was no question that I would sell books,” said Barnes. The store also carries some toys, games, puzzles, bibs, hats and other various items. Boomerang also intends to carry some special occasion maternity items that are typically only worn once or twice during pregnancy, like fancy dresses. The store is also equipped with dressing rooms and Barnes began accepting items for consignment in March. “Some of it is from friends, some of it is mine,” said Barnes. “But after we got the sign up people started coming in.” For those clothes that do not sell and get donated, Barnes is working with www. treehouseforkids.org, an organization that provides clothes to foster families. “My mother-in-law has foster kids and having a place for those families to go and shop for free is great and I am happy to be a part of that,” said Barnes, who also wants to be able to donate to the Lake Washington School District.

Boomerang Kids Consignment is open from 10-6 on weekdays and 11-4 on weekends with some extended hours for working families that can be found on the store’s website.

Former NFL player, leukemia survivor to speak at Crave Health Crave Health, a private nutrition practice in Kirkland, is excited to announce that former NFL star and current Seahawks Defensive Line intern Kenechi Udeze will be speaking at the upcoming Cancer-focused Nutrition Clinic on May 21. The former NFL defensive end will share his personal experience fighting and winning the battle against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, an aggressive form of cancer that required him to undergo several rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.

Says Crave Health owner Ashley Besecker, “Kenechi is an amazing guy with an amazing story, and I want people to be fired up about preventing diseases like cancer so they don’t have to go through what he did.” During the one-hour clinic, Besecker will discuss dietary strategies for cancer prevention as well as what’s new in cancer prevention research. Besecker will also share her personal experience with bone marrow donation. In addition, Puget Sound Blood Center is sponsoring a free Bone Marrow Drive from 5-6 p.m. at the Woodmark Hotel prior to the clinic, when attendees can join the Bone Marrow registry at no cost and potentially help an adult or child in need of a live-saving transplant. The fee to join the registry is usually $50. The cancer-focused nutrition clinic will take place at from 6-7 pm. at the Woodmark Hotel at Carillon Point. Advanced sign up is required as space is limited. To RSVP, send email to Ashley@cravehealth.com or call 425-8280100. Tickets are $20 each.

The council originally

imposed a 60-day moratorium and then extended it to six months on Jan. 3. That moratorium was set to expire May 15. The Planning Commission is still working on the issue, said the city’s Planning Director, Eric Shields. Shields said with the moratorium extended, the city hopes to have a public hearing on changes to the BN-zone properties on June 28 and to have council consider those changes by Aug. 7. But that will be nearly a year since the Potala Village project was proposed. Litigation has also not been ruled out and was even threatened by project owner Lobsang Dargey. The council has the power to rescind the moratorium at any time.

ficulty walking. Evergreen was the only site in the Pacific Northwest to hold the trial, which was led by Dr. C. Warren Olanow, a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology and Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. The trial tested standard oral dosages of a Parkinson’s drug against the newer levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) and found that the intestinal treatments gave patients an average of two extra hours per day of reduced symptoms and improved movement. “We have been involved in the trials since 2008,” said Dr. Alida Griffith, principal investigator for the trial at Evergreen’s Booth Gardner Parkinson’s Care Center. “Levodopa is the ‘gold standard’ treatment for Parkinson’s disease.” The intestinal gel contains levodopa and carbidopa, two drugs commonly prescribed for Parkinson’s, and is infused through a portable pump connected to a tube implanted in the intestine. In the three-month, double-blind trial, 71 participants were randomized to receive either the continuous infusion of LCIG and dummy pills or a dummy intestinal gel and pills that contained levodopa and carbidopa. At the start of the study, the average person had Parkinson’s disease for about 11 years and experienced 6.6 hours of symptomatic behavior per day. A total of 93 percent of participants completed the study.

cash on eBay first! My husband buys Allen Edmonds shoes, keeps them for a long time (10plus years) and takes very good care of them. Hence the need for a reliable, reasonably priced, professional, friendly and convenient shoe repair shop. Bailey’s Shoe Repair fits the bill perfectly! At first glance, Bailey’s Shoe Repair in Kirkland seems to be owned by Bella, a 9 pound, 6 ounce Yorkshire Terrier whose snout you will probably see sticking out from under the front counter’s half-door. Come to find out, however, it is actually owned by Kendra and Randy Bailey. Both Bella and Kendra run the front of the shop while Randy and their son, Ben, are hard at work in the back repairing shoes, belts, purses, etc. Daughter Alyssa will hopefully return to work when she is ready after having given birth a year ago to a beautiful baby girl, Khloe Harper. Kendra and Randy were kind enough to spend three hours talking with me and giving me a tour of their workshop. Bailey’s Shoe Repair has been in business for 32 years – 28 of those years at Kirkland Parkplace and since 2008 happily relocating to a strip mall on the south side of 85th Ave. and 122nd St.

he shoes my husband wears to work look the same as the ones he wears on weekends, in the rain, and to go outside to get the newspapers at 6 a.m. Oh … wait a minute … they are all the same! It’s true. He has five pairs of the exact same style and brand of shoe three pairs of black and two pairs of brown tassel slip-ons. The only variations in his shoe collection are his Crocs, Tevas, and hiking boots. Why he chooses to wear white socks with his Tevas and his hiking boots out to dinner, well, I have to pick my battles! The good news is that his complacency with his never-changing selection of shoes allows me to indulge in my desire to seasonally change my shoe choices to match the weather, the occasion, the day of the week - you know where I am going with this! Here’s an interesting side note: Apparently, cedar shoe trees (my husband owns five pairs) are a rare commodity. It is quite possible that they may appreciate in value faster than our savings or our home in Arizona! To that point, I have decided to put the shoe trees in our last will and testament to pass down to our children, unless of course they auction them off for

Woman, 94, has get-up-and-go spirit Reporter intern

A common misconception about retiring is that it means doing nothing. However, one Kirkland resident defies the stereotype and can’t seem to stand still for one moment. At 94 years old, Merrill Gardens resident Dorothy “Dotty” Cacchione has used the extra time that retirement

has given her to expand her horizons in active new pursuits. “You don’t just retire, you retire from doing old things,” said Dotty. Growing up in Mt. Vernon, N.Y., Dotty was always an active participant in many sports like basketball, volleyball, and track and field. Up until her retirement, Dotty was an active traveler as well.

While she doesn’t travel as much, not even retirement could stop Dotty’s bustling lifestyle. Well into her nineties, Dotty continues to remain as lively as ever. Swimming every other Saturday and participating in weekly Zumba and yoga classes, Dotty hasn’t skipped a beat to keep her days animated and herself healthy. “Without some sort of exercise, you just become stagnant,” said Dotty, who disapproves of a lazy and inactive retirement. “My doctor said that as I get older, I get better,” jokes Dotty. Sticking to a moderated diet of protein, carbs, and fat, Dotty is clinically in the best health she has ever been in despite being diagnosed with diabetes four years ago.

Gov. Gregoire recognizes volunteer for outstanding service

611796

BY ZACH SHUCKLIN

Retired chef Ruth Anne Morley, of Kirkland, has spent nearly 4,000 hours of her time as a dedicated member of Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) working with Hopelink to meet community needs through volunteer service. Because of her passion and enthusiasm for serving and helping others, she was recognized on April 23 by Gov. Christine Gregoire along with 50 other outstanding volunteers from around the state who displayed exceptional commitment to their volunteer service and their community. Over the past eight years her service has included teaching classes on how to prepare meals from food bank ingredients, transporting food bank donations, and preparing meals for

food bank volunteers in four locations. After her job as a chef came to an end, Morley was left unsatisfied in retirement. She got into the business of volunteering when she went to Hopelink for assistance. “I think I was led to Hopelink because I needed them and they needed me,” she said. Hopelink offered cooking classes, so Morley volunteered to teach and hasn’t stopped volunteering since.She is committed to volunteering and has no intention of slowing down as her passion for people and food fuels her forward. It is for this reason that she was honored among the other nominees for excellence and dedication in volunteering to meet crucial needs in her community with a warm and giving attitude. Morley was nominated for the Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Service Award by RSVP. RSVP is a National Service Program committed to supporting volunteerism for people 55 and older throughout King County.

LWIT’s Funeral Service Program receives accreditation Lake Washington Institute of Technology’s (LWIT) Funeral Service Education program received accreditation last week by the American Board of Funeral Service Education. LWIT’s program is the only accredited program in the state of Washington and one of fewer than 60 in the U.S. “We worked hard for this distinction and are very excited, not only to be accredited, but also for the feedback we received from the accreditors who visited our school,” said Erin Wilcox, director of the program and full time faculty at LWIT. “They commented that our facilities were arguably the best in the country. In fact, many other schools don’t have labs on campus

where our program is fully in-house.” LWIT’s program facilities include classrooms, a full three-table embalming lab, a nine-body cooler with an additional two-body cooler in the receiving area, and a display room complete with caskets, vaults, headstones, and other funeral items. Graduates of LWIT’s Funeral Service Education program receive an associate of applied science degree in funeral service education and obtain the skills to work as professional funeral directors or embalmers. “A great deal goes into this education, from learning the physical skills of embalming and business management, to understanding the psychology of grief and customer service with compassion,” Wilcox said. “This program attracts people with business and planning sense who have a strong calling to help families during a very difficult

time. It is a very rewarding career.” LWIT’s intensive seven quarter program provides students with knowledge in sociology, psychology, accounting, business management, law, chemistry, anatomy, microbiology, pathology, restorative art, funeral directing and embalming. Students must also pass national and state board exams to graduate. LWIT’s program started in the fall of 2009. In 2010, the program received accreditation candidacy status.

The first class finished in March 2011. A class must complete the program in order for the program to be eligible for full accreditation. Unique to LWIT is the Gifted Body program, where families with limited financial resources or those wishing to contribute to education may donate the body of a loved one. Transportation and cremation services are provided at no charge to the family. For more information, call 425739-8385.

Students in LWIT’s Funeral Service Education’s restorative art course learn valuable skills in applying cosmetics and performing hairstyling in preparation for funeral presentation. CONTRIBUTED

Juanita softball beats three opponents by a combined 33-1 BY MATT PHELPS mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

K

eana Miller continued her torrid pace April 24, going 4-for-4 with an RBI, during the Juanita softball team’s 15-1 win against Liberty. The hits added to a streak that Miller started the previous week. She has now collected 14 base hits in her

last 14 at-bats. But for as hot as Miller has been she was not the hitting star during the game for the Rebels as teammate Katie Kent went 3-for-4 with four RBI. All of her hits during the game were doubles. Molly Steck added two RBI and a double of her own during a 2-for-3 day at the plate. The Rebels scored eight

runs during the first and cruised to the victory. Allison Rhodes pitched three innings, giving up just one hit and striking out five, to pick up the win. The Juanita girls softball team kept rolling April 26, beating Lake

Washington 4-0. The game was surprisingly scoreless heading into the sixth when the Rebels got on the board. Juanita added to that one-run lead with three more during the top of the seventh. Miller’s hit streak came

to an end but she did club a home run and collect three RBI. Cami Pettengill also hit a home run for the Rebels, while going 2-for3. Taylor Ferleman was 3-for-3 at the plate for Lake Washington. Rhodes pitched a complete-game shutout for Juanita, striking out 16 batters and giving up just four hits. Audrey Sundene also

pitched a complete game, giving up nine hits, while striking out two batters for Lake Washington. Juanita clubbed the Totems Friday with a three inning 14-0 victory at home. The Rebels scored just one run during the first but their bats were relentless during the second and third innings, scoring six and seven runs respectively.

LW baseball completes comeback against Juanita The Lake Washington baseball team kept rolling with a win April 26, but the Rebels made them earn it in an extra inning thriller 8-7. The Rebels took a 5-0 lead early in the game, scoring three during the third inning and two in the fifth. A seven-run sixth inning, which got most the Kang offense involved including back-to-back

triples by Alac Wong and Theo Alexander, gave Lake Washington the lead and momentum. But the outburst of offense didn’t crush the Rebels’ hope for an upset victory over the top team in the league. Juanita batter Avery Britton sent the ball to the fence with the bases loaded to tie the game during the bottom of the seventh.

The Patriots showed life just three minutes into the second half, cutting the lead to just one goal. But O’Rourke took a Nathan Ryan pass and put it into the back of the Liberty net during the 61st minute of the game to finish off the scoring.

It boasts 21.94 acres and about 1000 lineal feet of Lake Washington waterfront. Current features include: swimming beach, picnic tables, kids’ playground, public dock, fishing area, beach volleyball, restrooms/changing roomsclosed in the winter, lighted tennis courts, little league ball fields, a new Juanita Creek nature area, open lawn areas, horseshoe pits and the historic Forbes House. The new Juanita Neighborhood Association is currently working with the city to place several historic signs in the park to inform visitors of its amazing past.

thanks to millennia of deposits courtesy of Juanita Creek and its tributaries. Forbes’ adult son, Leslie “Les” and his wife Alicia decided to turn the property into a privately operated bathing beach, so in 1921 Les Forbes’ Juanita Beach was born. The original Juanita Beach was a small piece of the Forbes property at the east edge of today’s park, later two other private beaches were created to the west, Sandy and Shady beaches, though they were later consolidated and operated as Shady Beach. The 1920-40’s were a busy time for the beaches at Juanita. Summers brought throngs of bathers from Seattle and outlying areas. Bath houses, dance halls, concessions, rental cabins and other amenities contributed to Juanita as a summer resort community. In 1956 Juanita and Shady beaches were sold to King County and the entire property was renamed Juanita Beach Park. By the 1990’s the park had fallen into disrepair and was overpopulated with waterfowl, whose feces had created serious water quality concerns. King County transferred the property to the City of Kirkland in 2002 and that began a new, posiMatthew McCauley

uanita Beach is likely the most historic property owned by the City of Kirkland, yet today, despite its deep roots, it has an all new feel and look. Kids during the 192030’s used to find arrowheads and spear points at what is now the north end of the park, which suggests native habitation from pre-history. Prior to 1916, Lake Washington was nine feet deeper and the land south of Juanita Drive was submerged. In 1870, a 19-year-old logger named Martin Hubbard staked his 160-acre homestead claim on Juanita Bay and built his crude cabin on the site of Juanita Village development. In 1877, Dorr and Eliza Forbes of Iowa came to Juanita Bay’s shore with their children and later purchased some of Hubbard’s claim for use as their home and a shingle mill on Juanita Creek. Their original house from the mid-1880s burned, but their second home, built in 1905, still stands on the park property, adjacent to the baseball field. Lake Washington’s 1916 lowering revealed considerable land on shallow Juanita Bay. Unlike most of the lake shore, instead of smelly goo, Juanita Bay’s northern shore was sandy,

WSDOT will use several tools to give the public as much advance notice as possible when the bridge is scheduled to close to traffic for a drawspan opening. Electronic message signs on highways approaching SR 520 will list the scheduled time for the closure, allowing drivers to plan for delays or choose an alternate route. Each year, up to 20 vessels taller than 64 feet pass through the SR 520 drawspan after hours and on weekends. Since construction started in the eastern navigation channel, WSDOT has conducted a handful of daytime drawspan openings with advance notice.

HOW A FAMILY-OWNED FERRY SERVICE IS

GOING THE DISTANCE FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS — AND THE SEATTLE ECONOMY.

For more than 25 years, the iconic red-and-blue Clipper fleet has been ferrying commuters and vacationers alike between Seattle, Victoria, B.C. and the spectacular San Juan Islands. To keep the fleet as modern and comfortable as possible for passengers, Clipper Vacations began working with Bank of America in 2007. We initially helped by restructuring loans that enabled engine upgrades, allowing the fleet to reach speeds of up to 30 knots. More recently, we provided financing to modernize the fleet’s interior cabins. It’s a relationship that’s not only helping to get Seattle residents where they need to go — it’s also helping to generate local economic growth: the family-owned fleet employs 150 people. Clipper is another example of how we’re working to help locally based businesses grow and hire in the Puget Sound — and across the country. In 2011, we provided $222 million in new credit to small businesses in Washington — an increase of 28% from 2010. To learn more about what we’re doing to help strengthen the local economy, visit bankofamerica.com/Seattle
