NORTHSHORE CRIME FIGHTER Alert citizen helps Bothell police catch credit-card ‘skimmers’ BY ANDY NYSTROM anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

BY ANDY NYSTROM anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

Just like Inglemoor and Bothell prep football coaches Frank Naish and Tom Bainter assess their teams after games, local automotive instructor Pat McCue goes for it after his squad recently won the state title. Roman Wagner from Inglemoor High led the way with the internal work and starting the car, in which they diagnosed and repaired intentionally installed “bugs” in 54 minutes to take the top prize at Renton Technical College last month. Jacob Kallinen of Bothell High was a meticulous hardworker who worked on the external components — power door locks, lights and more — during the final. “It was pretty impressive, and it was kind of nail-biting,” McCue said of the final. Bothell was the second team to get its car started and out on the road test, but the first squad didn’t locate all 10 “bugs.” Team Bothell did and took the title. “We had a perfect car,” said McCue, noting that his 2007

team’s car was flawless in the final, as well. McCue has trained students in Bothell’s automotive course since 2003 and also helped one team win a state title in 2007 and send the boys to nationals, which this year will take place June 10-12 at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, Mich. Kallinen and Wagner each earned more than $42,000 in scholarships after competing in the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills state finals on April 24. At nationals, they’ll compete against teams from 50 other states for additional scholarships, prizes and an opportunity to job shadow Wood Brothers Racing at Daytona International Speedway in Florida. Kallinen, who works at Firestone in Woodinville, said he and Wagner were committed to performing well at state and spent several hours a day training with McCue on their spring break to prepare for the event. Kallinen added that the scholarship money up for grabs was an incentive to win, as well. [ more AUTO page 8]

Bothell Police Chief Carol Cummings presents an award to Cherie (last name withheld) of Kenmore last week at a press conference. ANDY NYSTROM, Bothell-Kenmore Reporter tives Michael Stone, Jon Caban and Ryan Odegaard for their involvement in alerting police of suspicious activity, apprehending the men and helping bust the prolific ring on Dec. 2, 2010 in Bothell. Overall, the ring stole more than $1 million from more

than 300 bank accounts in the Pacific Northwest, Durkan said. According to a previous Reporter story, ATM skimmers place a fake faceplate over a cash machine’s card reader, and a device is then placed inside the fake plate,

where it can capture the information stored in the card’s magnetic strip. Thieves place small cameras above the ATM keypad to capture customers’ PINs. Thieves then “re-code” victims’ bank data onto blank debit cards or store gift cards. [ more SKIM page 9]

U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan started out in a serious tone, noting that two Romanian nationals were part of an ATM “skimming” ring that compromised bank accounts and evaded law-enforcement officials in Sweden, Germany and Canada. “But then they came to Bothell — that was their mistake,” she said as the crowd laughed during a press conference April 26 at the Bothell Police Department.

Northshore’s SAS earns green honor

www.bothell-reporter.com • www.kenmore-reporter.com By Andy Nystrom anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

Bothell’s Secondary Academy for Success (SAS) is in good company with 77 other schools nationwide that have received a green thumbs up from some higher-ups in Washington,

D.C. On April 23, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson announced the first-ever U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools that span 29 states and D.C. The federal recognition program, which opened in September 2011, honors schools that exercise a comprehensive approach to creating green environments through reducing environmental impact, promoting health and ensuring a high-quality environmental and outdoor education. Speaking during a visit to Stoddert Elementary School, one of D.C.’s two honorees, Sutley noted that “schools that take a green approach cut costs on their utility bills, foster healthy

and productive classrooms and prepare students to thrive in the 21st-century economy.” Back in Bothell, SAS Principal Vicki Puckett said that she’s proud of her staff for their instructional leadership to teach students about sustainable environmental issues. “These are real issues that they will continue to face as they become adults. Also, having business partners like McKinstry has been wonderful. They have helped us immensely,” Puckett added. Along with McKinstry Industries, Northshore School District Superintendent Larry Francois said that 21 Acres, Cascadia Community College, the University of Washington, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Northshore Schools Foundation has teamed up with SAS to

help kids learn about the environment. “SAS students and staff have truly embraced environmental stewardship and sustainability. They are at the forefront of efforts taking place across our district in areas such as recycling, composting, energy management and sustainable practices. This mission permeates the school and has become a key element of SAS’s identity and focus,” Francois said. More than 350 schools completed applications to their state education agencies, and the 78 winners stood out from among nearly 100 nominees. The Green Ribbons are one-year recognition awards, and next year’s competition will open in summer 2012. State agencies can submit nominees by June 15 via e-mail to green.ribbon.schools@ ed.gov.

Funding will also allow the city and IPZ to move forward with its plans for a larger facility catering to the med-tech industry through office, conference and hospitality services located in Canyon Park. At UW-Bothell, $63 million will go toward the 74,000-square-foot building — known as UW 3 — which will house 11 science labs, several classrooms, gathering space and a 200-person lecture hall. This space translates into the ability to serve an additional 1,000 students each year. It is the first building to be constructed on the UW-Bothell campus in 10 years. “This gives UW-Bothell the ability to expand

erpoint Biomedical and Health Sciences Building, continuing their growing medical training and life sciences programs. Also, $78 million will go toward energy efficiency grants for higher education, K-12 schools and local governments to generate savings that can in turn be re-invested in the classroom.

The capital budget also includes significant enhancements to our other vital sectors — economic development, housing and weatherization enhancements, sustainable energy improvements, natural resource preservation and local government infrastructure enhancements.

Thanks to Gov. Chris Gregoire signing a supplemental capital budget last month, the city of Bothell and the University of Washington, Bothell can put to use a good chunk of money to fund a medical project and build a science facility. The stimulus plan, signed at Tacoma Community College on April 23, will invest $1 billion into a projected 18,000 family wage construction jobs across the state. “Jobs are the way out of this recession,” said Gregoire of signing Senate bills 6074 and 5127. “I’m proud to sign a package that makes our state stronger, and invests in Washington’s future.” According to Terrie Battuello, Bothell assistant city manager/ economic development manager, the city will receive $500,000 to fund a project for the Bothell Med Tech Manufacturing Innovation Partnership Zone (IPZ) — its second $500,000 grant for this purpose. “This support from the state helps to fund the IPZ’s goals for creating an incubator and expanding it to a center of excellence for the med-tech industry

Lighting a fire for learning As an editor, reporter and photographer at the Bothell-Kenmore Reporter, I’m always aware of what goes on around me. I’ve constantly got my ears and eyes wide open for stories to share with our readers. Even when I think I might take off my journalist’s cap for an hour or two to attend a luncheon, I’m always on the clock. I just can’t help it. Any journalist will tell you the same thing. I try to put the camera down for a second, but there I am, snapping photos of the Canyon Creek Elementary marimba band at the recent Northshore Schools Foundation “Light a Fire for Learning” luncheon at the Lynnwood Convention Center. I push the pen and paper away to listen to speakers, and there it goes again, I’m jotting inspirational quotes down that eventually made their way into this column. It’s an addiction — and I’ll jump on it whenever the situation arises. I don’t have a choice, really. Plus as a one-man editorial staff at the Reporter, someone’s gotta make things happen, right? What an honor it was to be in attendance at the “Light a Fire for Learning” luncheon for another year. From foundation board member Susan Fyall noting that Northshore School District students are receiving a “rock-star education” to Torchbearer Award winner Mike Sharadin saying, “For me, the thanks is seeing how many people are in this room” (a couple hundred in my estimation), the support is there in droves for local schools. As a result, the foundation raised $118,000 at the luncheon that will further the foundation’s continued funding initiatives, which include supporting teacher excellence; STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education; support for advanced and disadvantaged learners; fitness, health, music and enhancement; and literacy support in all 31 Northshore schools. Keynote speaker Dr. Bonnie J. Dunbar, retired NASA astronaut and Washington state native, said that 87 percent of the jobs out there require STEM skills and added that STEM is “important to our youth, Andy Nystrom

communities and nation.” I’d heard Hannah Thomas, Bothell High ASB president, speak before at a school-improvement plan meeting, so I knew she’d light up the room. She studied science at Skyview Junior High and then tackled advanced classes at Bothell and will further her education at the University of Washington. “I can’t wait to see what science research has in store,” she said. “For me, science and leadership inspired me. Not just me, but thousands of other students.” As I wrote that quote down, I knew exactly where this column would take me. There was no question about it.

Thanks for helping save ‘North Creek Forest’ Once upon a time, there were things called trees that helped us breathe….. goes the theme of the Dr. Suess book, “The Lorax.” Our Northwest is plenty green, so it’s hard to believe that in one generation more than 40 percent of the planet’s rainforests have been cut down. It is heartening to see Bothell citizens and members of the City Council engaged in the process of saving “North Creek Forest” as highlighted in last issue’s Reporter. THANK YOU to the council and staff for stepping up to the long-term vision that will preserve this forest for future generations. They recognized the value of an urban forest and encouraged citizens to raise the money toward its purchase and preservation. Citizens and organizations took up the challenge.

We want every Bothell citizen to imagine what quality will be added to our city if this entire forest is preserved: Can you imagine… A 64-acre second growth forest within 1 mile of City Hall? A place of serenity and peace for walking? A place for school kids to learn about the environment? A home for wildlife, including deer, owls and priority species? Please thank the City Council.

Not everyone hates mother of missing 2-year-old boy

Workers remove trees near the old Ricketts building in Bothell on a recent day. ANDY NYSTROM, Bothell-Kenmore Reporter

Football games and trees are gone, but not forgotten Old-time Bothell residents with good memories must have smiled when they noticed the recent removal of the trees that used to line the front of the removed Ricketts Northshore School District Administrative Building. There was a time when the large expanse of lawn in front of Ricketts was devoid of trees. Local teenaged boys soon discovered that the lawn was a great place to hold impromptu touch-football games. Every day, a group of teens would gather and engage in a noisy game of football. The schooldistrict staff ironically

became annoyed at the noise, and a large raised planter box was installed on the lawn to dissuade the local teenagers from their playground. Activist Mayor Dr. Walter Sundstrom wrote a blistering, humorous letter to the Northshore Citizen decrying this obvious attempt to stop the football games. The school district quickly responded and removed the planter, and anticipating a generation of tree huggers, planted a double row of trees around the building, ending the football games. The football games are gone and the building is gone and some of the trees are gone, but Mayor Sundstrom’s action is a pleasant footnote to Bothell’s history.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

One who remembers, Don Bagnall

(The following is a letter that a woman sent to Julia Biryukova, via Biryukova’s attorney. Biryukova is the mother of missing 2-yearold Sky Metalwala. The boy’s father lives in Kirkland). Hello Julia, I have never met you, and know your story from the newspapers only. I just want to let you know that I feel sorry for you and I believe that you love your children. I pray for you every day like I pray for myself, any other Russian or Ukrainian mother in U.S. who was separated from her children. Please know that you are not the only one, I met seven other women from Russia and Ukraine who were deprived of the custody for their children during the divorce process. They all had an attorney. My married life was not great also. My husband started an affair at work awhile ago, after my little one was born. He started to call me “fat,” making fun of me on a daily basis. I asked him for the divorce several times, and asked him to vacate the house. I did not work at that time, taking care of the little one, and driving the older one to school every day. I started to look for a job that would allow me to have a flexible

schedule since it would be hard to be a single mom with two kids and to work regular hours. I also enrolled my little one in a nice daycare. My husband told me that he found a better daycare and I should not argue since he is a father and a breadwinner. The daycare was awful, and I could not find a reason for him making such a bad decision. As I found out, later his mistresscoworker had her two kids at the same daycare, and it was convenient for my husband to pick her and her kids up in the morning, drop off all the kids at the daycare, carpool with her to work and from work, adjusting my baby to the new mother. I could feel that something was really wrong, since my husband slept in the garage for several months. It all made me really unhappy, but I was embarrassed to talk to anyone about my family situation, because my husband also told me that since I do not have any family up here, and no money, no one will listen to me. He also started to destroy my older child, making fun of me in front of him, telling him that his mom is stupid, books are damned, and I should not tell him to study when he wants to just have fun. My husband transferred my older son to a different school, removing me from the contact list, leaving as a contact person himself and

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

his mistress only. When I showed up at school in January after the winter break, the school assistant principal called the police, even though I explained the situation. The police told me to leave. I was kicked out of my house, I did not have anything, and had to buy everything new. I slept on an air mattress for the past few months at the house of my older son’s classmate. I work, and I bought groceries for my kids several times in the past weeks, paid for school lunches, took the kids to the doctor, etc. My husband’s mistress went to Mexico for a few days, she got a new car, she and her kids sleep in my house, and eat the food I buy for my kids. The neighbors told me that almost every night they can see my husband and his mistress in the living room making out on the couch with kids in the living room, and my baby on the floor. I tried to call her after I found her phone number from the school contact list and she was very rude. I sent her a few text messages telling her that she can have my husband, but they asked me for $1400 a month in child support. She even filed for an anti-harassment order against me. I decided that I needed to get an attorney who will advocate for me and my kids. I did not have money, but I asked my friends to raise money for me and got the retainer. I was really happy after I met with the attorney and she promised me that

she will fight for me and my kids, and will get me back to the house, and I will be with my kids. I did everything she asked me to do. 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.

Liquor board completes online auction BY ANDY NYSTROM anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

Biniam Habte saw the opportunity and went for it. The Bothell resident is the winning bidder in a monthlong online auction — which ended April 20 — for the rights to apply for a spirits retail liquor license at two Washington state-run liquor stores. The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) successfully auctioned those rights to licenses at its 167 stores. Habte’s Seattle stores are at 5105 25th Ave. N.E. ($321,100 bid) and 2840 N.E. Market St. ($208,501 bid). “It’s a new kind of business, and business is always risky,” Habte said. “We thought it was a great opportunity to own this unique business. We want to be part of it.” The sum of individual bids totaled $30.75 million, with rights awarded to 121 individual successful bidders. There were 551 registered bidders; 14,627 total bids; 93 individuals who won bids on single stores; and 28 individuals who won bids on multiple stores. Top bidders for Bothell’s two stores — at 19111 Bothell Way N.E. (now closed) and 20617 Bothell-Everett Highway — are Balwant Singh of Lacey

Kenmore’s state-run liquor store at 6820 N.E. Bothell Way. Reporter file photo ($154,100 bid) and Abi Eshagi of Woodinville ($110,800 bid), respectively. Devinder Sahota of Vacaville, Calif., was the No. 1 bidder for the Kenmore store, 6820 N.E. Bothell Way ($270,900 bid). “The area looked pretty good. It’s really a good store to invest money into,” Singh said. Sahota, who is affiliated with the Liquor Barn Enterprises in Redding, Calif., said they bid on quite a few of the stores before landing the Kenmore spot. He added that they’re not sure what their next step in the ownership process will be. Eshagi couldn’t be reached at press time. The highest statewide winning bid was $750,100 for

a store at 7048 Pacific Ave. in Tacoma; the lowest statewide winning bid was $49,600 for a store at 2401 W. Wellesley Ave. in Spokane. The sale was required with the passage of Initiative 1183 last November, which privatized the sales from hard alcohol, or spirits. The initiative directed the WSLCB to auction the state store properties at their current location. However, the state leases the properties, not owns, creating a unique circumstance for the auction. Successful bidders earned the exclusive right to apply for a liquor license at the current location within its current footprint. All state store properties are below the 10,000-squarefoot threshold established by

the initiative. Successful bidders will need to secure a lease with the property landlord. If they are unable to secure a lease, they may re-sell their right or request an alternative location within a one-mile radius of the existing location. The WSLCB ran two simultaneous auctions to achieve “maximum reasonable value,” as stated in the initiative. The first was for each individual store. The second was for all store locations available for a single bid, with the state taking the higher of the two. The sum of individual bids exceeded the $4.6 million all-store high bid by a nearly seven-to-one ratio. Privately-owned liquor retailers may begin selling hard alcohol or spirits on June 1. • The WSLCB shut down 14 state liquor stores — including the one at 19111 Bothell Way N.E. — April 26 to compensate for store employees leaving for new jobs. The WSLCB analyzed market areas where closings would occur, and identified only stores where there would be minimal disruption. The WSLCB has been filling store vacancies with temporary workers since December 2011. The closure of the 14 stores is not related to the state liquorstore auction.

[ HOMEWORK from page 6] grant to put in a kitchen during its remodel, members had to form a community outreach program — The Homework Club. On a recent Tuesday, 16 child and adult tutors and 20 students were on hand to tackle math, spelling, reading and more. The students range from grades one through six, and the child tutors are in grades six through eight. Best friends Jaiden Lemley and Mariya Astakhova, fifth-graders at Shelton View Elementary, said their adult tutor Julie Bukowski has helped them improve their multiplication and division skills at the club. “It’s (helped) a lot — a lot,” Lemley said. “It’s friendly, nice, kind and there’s awesome food,” added Astakhova. Canyon Park Junior High seventh-grader Hank Melse tutors a second-grader in math, and his mom, Deb, is the liaison between the church and Maywood Hills and helps serve up the meals. “It’s nice that you tutor

one student every single time, so you kind of know them, and it’s easier,” Hank said. Maywood Hills Principal David Wellington and the teachers and staff assist in recruiting students who may benefit from The Homework Club, which features four student tutors working for community service credits and/or honorsociety awards. “It’s actually a slam dunk. It makes a lot of sense for community members to gather around kids and help them with homework and give them a boost up,” Wellington said of the club, which will run this school year through May 22. After their homework is completed, the kids — some low-income and English as a Second Language students — play education games and participate in crafting projects like decorating pots containing starter plants for Mother’s Day, Smith-Dechenne said. “We just keep them busy.”

According to Kallinen’s grandmother, Nancy, her father, Vic Shellito, was a car enthusiast and mechanic in Bothell many years ago. “It’s kind of fun to see it come full circle,” she said. Added Jacob: “Seeing that my great-grandfather was sort of a car freak, he brought my father and uncle into the shop and they just kind of brought me into the whole thing. Being in that environment all the time kind of pushed me into this industry.” Wagner is an Automotive Youth Educational Systems intern at Bickford Ford in Snohomish, which provided the team a 2012 Ford Fusion and diagnostic scanning tool to practice on heading into the final. He said they were nervous, but confident at the same time at state since the teammates were so well-prepared. A top-three finish was Wagner’s goal, but No. 1 will do, he said with a chuckle. Career-wise, Wagner can see himself continuing to work in the autoservices industry in a dealership setting. “I really enjoy the troubleshooting end of it,” he said.

Cummings said the partnership between citizens and the police department is key. “A citizen was willing to step forward when she saw something that was a little suspicious, took the time to get the information (and) to contact us,” she said. “Because of that, our great detectives were able to pull together a case and take some bad people off the street.” At about 2 p.m. Dec. 2 at the Canyon Park Bank of America, while in her car Cherie witnessed one man first spending a significant amount of time at a drive-

through ATM — while on foot. She chose not to use that ATM when he finished “because I thought maybe he had done something funny to the ATM.” Cherie then went to use the outside ATM, and the man in front of her was taking a long time there, as well. She watched him eventually leave and get into the same truck as the first man. She alerted the Bank of America manager, and then went to her car and intended to go to a store and buy her son a snack before picking him up after school. However, her plans changed when the men in the truck were driving in front of her. She

wrote down their licenseplate number and then saw them turn into nearby Chase Bank. “It was kind of bugging me, so I said, ‘Let me go take a drive over there,’ and they were doing the same thing at Chase, so I called 9-1-1,” she said. “Have you ever seen something and didn’t report it and then it’s just bugged you your whole life? That’s happened to me before, and so if I see something, I say something.” While observing them and speaking with the 9-1-1 operator, she told the person: “I know shady when I see it, and they’re doing something wrong at the banks.”

Durkan noted that “coincidence was on the side of the angels,” since the three detectives were trying to take a lunch break and noticed the same suspicious activity and leaped into action. “There is no rest for the Bothell Police Department,” smiled Durkan, who was also a “skimming” victim by a different theft ring. One man was arrested in the truck and detectives chased down the other man, who was trying to flee on foot. After Cherie picked up her

son from school, they heard sirens and saw the police darting into the area. They called her and she picked out the “skimming” men in the shopping-mall parking lot near Chase. “I’m pleased that I was able to help people,” said Cherie, who is surprised the thieves weren’t caught sooner, since during her experience they were “skimming” in broad daylight with others around. According to a press release, in September 2011, the Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force executed

search warrants and arrested Ismail Sali at the Kirkland home that was a hub for the “skimming” activity. Durkan noted that people using ATMs should be aware of their surroundings before withdrawing cash and make sure no one can observe their PINs. Cummings also awarded Cherie a Meritorious Service Award on a day that was part of a national week recognizing crime victims and the witnesses and professionals who work with victims in the criminal-justice system.

...TODAY’S pArenT

Raising Appreciative Children children are naturally ego-centric, the concept of appreciation can be somewhat difficult for young children to grasp.

There are, however, a lot of things we as parents can do to plant the seeds of appreciation.

Model it. Our children get their cues on how to behave from us. And every day, we have countless opportunities to show our appreciation— to the cashier at the grocery store, the crossing guard, the kind soul who lets us slide our car in front of his in traffic. When we consistently model gestures of appreciation for our children, we increase the chance of raising kids who are polite and appreciative themselves. Point out all the things

the whole planet. Let your children know how much you appreciate them. Telling your children that you appreciate them brings the concept of appreciation into focus for them. Demonstrating your appreciation for your child is most effective when you tell her immediately, and when you’re very specific about what you appreciate. For example, “I like how you put your plate in the sink after lunch without me asking” resonates more than a simple “thank you.” Keep reminding your children to say thank you. It gets tiresome to remind our children to say “thank you” after they’ve had a playdate, when they receive a gift from someone, even when you get them a drink of water. But the payoff is worth it. There is no greater reward than when you hear your child say “thank you” for the first time without having to nudge them to do so.

Bothell is rolling with throwers, relayers BY ALEXANDRA GRAFF Special to the Reporter

They’re throwing and running strong up at Bothell High. Cougar senior Allie Hadley broke the school record with a throw of 140 feet, four inches in javelin on April 14 at the Pasco Invite. She currently is ranked first in state. “It’s really a big deal,” says Cathy Boyce, the Bothell High track and field coach. “She is sitting on top of Kingco, state and the league. It’s an outstanding highlight of the season.” Along with javelin, Hadley also competes in the girls 4x100 and 4x400 relay events. “It feels awesome,” says Hadley, whose goal is to throw 150 feet. “I’ve still got a lot of work to do.” Hadley trains in the off-season and postseason for her events. “It keeps me mindful and focused on technique.” Senior Morgunn Ewing also fares well in javelin and recently threw 147-7, passing his personal record of 129 feet. “In the world of javelin, it is a phenomenal feat,” says coach Boyce. His throw places him at the top of Kingco by five feet. He also ranked fifth at Pasco and eighth in the state. “It’s awesome. It feels good to be No. 1 in our division,” says Ewing. He puts in a lot of his own time training on weekends to better his throws in javelin and shot put. “Right now, I am just trying to beat my personal record and

Top, Bothell High’s 4x100 relay team of, left to right, Danny Wilson, Will McIntyre, Nick Anthony and Jared Berry is currently first in 4A Kingco and eighth in state with a 43.6-second mark.

Bothell’s boys 4x100 relay team ran a 43.6-second race in its last meet, rolling into first in Kingco and eighth in the state. The team includes junior Danny Wilson, junior Will McIntyre, junior Jared Berry and senior Nick Anthony. In the past three years, Bothell track and field has seen strong 4x100 teams. “We work really hard on technique,” says coach Boyce. “They have good team chemistry and it has worked out well.” The Bothell track and field team is working toward the Kingco championships May 9 and 11 at Juanita High. According to Boyce, the top eight at Kingco go to districts on May 16 and 18. The top five from

districts, which include Kingco and Wesco, will go to state. “We are working to get as many athletes to state as possible,” says Boyce. One of the team’s captains, senior Nate Conrad, comments on the season: “We have responded well from last year. Everyone has stepped up at the loss of seniors and we’ve had a lot of personal records.” Junior captain Jessi Howe says, “Overall, the team looks strong. We have good underclassmen and a strong girls team.” Coach Boyce is proud of the boys and girls who compete and excel for the Cougars in the multitude of events. “We encourage our kids to be track athletes. It’s not individual, it’s a team sport.”

For Inglemoor High’s boys varsity soccer team, the 2012 season has been anything but predictable. Coming into the first game of the preseason, the boys were positive that this year, they would be the team to beat. Victory proved more

difficult than the Vikings had anticipated, however, when they started their season 0-5. “We had to move around positions a few times,” senior captain and midfielder Jacob Kavanagh said. “Plus we’ve had injuries. Now that we’ve settled in our roles, though, we’re beginning to play the

way we expected.” The rocky start to the season did not dampen the team’s spirits, but instead encouraged the boys to practice harder and play stronger. Their season turned around in late March during a rematch with Newport, which had earlier beat them, 6-3. “Newport was ranked fifth in state and first in (4A) Kingco at the time, so we decided to play strong defense,” junior centerback Ian Schweickart said. “We targeted their star and won, 3-0. It was our first shutout of the year.” Following the game, Inglemoor achieved three more wins and two ties, bringing its conference record to 5-3-2 (and 5-8-2 overall) at press time. With these numbers, Inglemoor is likely to obtain a top seed in the Kingco tournament beginning this Saturday. “One key thing we have is patience,” head coach Kevin McGibbon said. “Like a good recipe or meal, sometimes it takes a while to get the ingredients together. We just need to maintain our focus after we score and defend better.” A key source of the team’s motivation throughout the [ more SOCCER page 15 ]

season has been the goals the Vikings made prior to their first game. Included in these were finishing in the top two of Kingco, giving up a goal or less per game and possessing the ball for at least 55 percent of the 80 minutes. “With each game we’ve played, we’ve improved,” junior centerback Baxter Hagen said. “We’re playing with the best of them now and I think we can

make it to state. That’s something that I want to bring back to Inglemoor since we haven’t been very good in the last few years.” Now that the team is effectively applying the skill that it’s always had, the state tournament is within its reach. “We’re peaking right now,” junior captain and midfielder Mehron Abdi said. “And that’s good because it’s at exactly

the right time. Our next games are important.” With great leaders and a strong chemistry between the players, the team is confident of its chances in the coming postseason. They are playing at the top of their game and jiving on the field as a single force, which is a strong factor in the success of the group. “We need to be careful not to be overconfident in our abilities so that we don’t repeat our pre-

season,” senior captain and offensive midfielder Justin Li said. “We’ve been winning a lot, but we can’t get ahead of ourselves.” Li leads the team with 15 goals and Baxter follows with 13. The lesson learned

from the beginning of this season will continue to help the Vikings stay on track as they advance through their next games. Things change fast in high-school soccer and the Vikings aren’t prepared to let their slow start beat them.

“We want to perform and I think everyone is pretty excited,” McGibbon said. “Our back line is solid and we have some great guys up front, but there is no time to relax. We just have to keep playing hard and that will be enough.”

‘Stamp Out Hunger’ on May 12 with letter carriers’ food drive

Rick Horner, former president of NALC Branch 79 in Seattle, lives in Kirkland and has participated in the drive since it launched. “To hear stories of children and families going hungry is just unthinkable to me,” he wrote in an e-mail. According to Horner, volunteer food-drive committees at each postal-service branch begin preparing for the event in the fall. Teams organize the drive with members from local

organizations such as Food Lifeline, a nonprofit food-distribution agency that caters to low-income individuals in Western Washington. Bennett is a member of his branch’s committee. He said it is useful to have a coordinating agency like Food Lifeline to help promote the event and store and distribute collected food. Horner wrote that the U.S. Postal Service also plays a large role by providing postage for reminder cards and donation bags. He credits the food drive’s success

The drive benefits local organizations, including Hopelink’s Kirkland and Northshore food-bank and emergency services center. Scott Milne, Hopelink food-program manager, said the group received 134,459 pounds of food from the 2011 drive. This year he said he hopes there are more donations. “We saw a little bit of a low last year,” Milne said, adding that this food drive is Hopelink’s largest donation. Since 1971, the Hopelink foundation has served homeless and low-income families, including individuals with disabilities.

With 16 percent of Americans at risk of hunger each day, members of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) hope their annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive will help lower the number of individuals who face malnutrition in the United States. May 12 will mark the event’s 20th anniversary. Brooks Bennett, a Bothell letter carrier since 1975, has participated in the food drive since its inception. He said mail carriers have a charitable history because the nature of their work connects them with communities. “We know that people need help from time to time, and this is an easy thing for us to do,” Bennett said. “It’s one day of intense involvement and additional labor, but the feedback we get from people who benefit from the food and customers who provide food is very appreciative. And appreciation goes a long way in a volunteer effort.” According to the Stamp Out Hunger Web site, the drive is the nation’s largest one-day food collection occasion. After beginning in the 1982, the NALC drive grew nationwide in 1992. Each year, letter carriers across America collect donations that help stock local food banks for spring and summer. Last year, letter carriers across the nation collected 70.2 million pounds of food, the Web site stated.

mission is to help low-income individuals change their lives by providing essential services, according to its Web site. Last month Hopelink’s food bank served 3,008 households and 10,809 individuals, Milne said. Although the Stamp Out Hunger drive collects mostly food, Milne said cash donations are sometimes given, as
