Speaking out against drinking and driving

BY ANDY NYSTROM anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

Thanks to Title IX, Yonni Mills finally stepped off the sidelines and onto the volleyball and basketball courts for Shorecrest High. The current Bothell High athletic director, who graduated from Shorecrest in 1975 and later placed at nationals as part of Washington State University’s volleyball squad, had always watched her younger brothers play organized ball — and now, it was her chance. On June 23, 1972, Title IX allowed women equal access to athletic opportunities. It is also identified by the name of its principal author as the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act. “To be involved in anything organized, I felt like I had just died and gone to heaven,” Mills said last week. “I was in that first group that finally got to do something, so I was super-excited to be in high school and be able to do anything.” And when she made the team at WSU, her excitement level rose even more, because she was playing on a bigger stage. “In my eyes, it was one of the

coolest experiences I’ve ever had,” she said. Mills didn’t receive her WSU chenille varsity volleyball letter until 2007 — because they didn’t hand out letters to women early on — and she proudly displays it in her Bothell High office. It was a few decades late, Mills says, but at least she finally got hold of the letter.

MURRAY, SOUNDERS CELEBRATE

To celebrate 40 years of Title IX, U.S. Sen. Patty Murray from Bothell teamed up with Seattle Sounders Women soccer players Megan Rapinoe, Stephanie Cox and Sydney Leroux to speak to a crowd of female athletes on May 2 at Garfield High in Seattle. “Forty years ago, 37 words threw open the doors to athletics, education and success for millions of young women in our country,” Murray said. Title IX reads: No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to [ more TITLE IX page 6]

Are people driving safely on SR 522? BY ANDY NYSTROM anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

As Jay’s Cafe owner Misty Qureshi glanced out the window of her business at the two smashed vehicles — one sitting on all four tires and the other laying on its side — she feels that driving has become a bit chaotic on Northeast Bothell Way, or State Route 522, in Kenmore. “I think the accident happened because of this median in the middle,” she said on May 7, “because people try getting out — any hole, they just see it, which is wrong. They’re not supposed to violate that, but they do it anyway.” In the second major accident (one was fatal) on SR 522 in the last three months, Northshore Fire Department public-information officer Wendy Booth said in a press release that witnesses stated that at about 10:33 a.m., a beige vehicle traveling eastbound on the 7500 block of SR 522 crossed the centerline and struck a westbound black SUV head-on. Qureshi called 911 to report the accident while a passerby checked on the victims. Fire personnel used extrication tools to remove occupants from the two vehicles. One occupant was in critical condition and transported to Harborview Hospital, and another occupant was in serious condi-

I think our top issues right now are issues with the economy and with jobs. So, someone who has a strong resume in working in business — both small business and large business — and really understands how our economy works is going to be critically important. And I have that experience. I have a good idea of what we need to do from a policy perspective, as well as making sure we put together policy that has the impact we need it to have and get real results, in what I always say, in the ‘real world.’ [ more DELBENE page 3 ]


National Thank You Day is set for May 19 Bothell Mayor Mark Lamb read and signed a proclamation on May 8 at the City Council meeting that states that May 19 is National Thank You Day to Honor First Responders, according to organizer Kelly Clark of Bothell.

The most important thing, and probably the best part of a campaign, is the ability to talk with people on a variety of issues. People are really honest when you talk to them, especially on a campaign about the challenges they face, what they’d like to see happen, what they think we need to do to improve — and it’s very refreshing to be able to have those honest conversations with folks. It’s about getting out and talking to as many people as possible, understanding the issues that really are important to this district: The economy, the impact of local businesses on our economy and what we can do to help them thrive and help working families thrive. Are you familiar with the Bothell area, have you touched base with any of the

Yep. I talked to the city manager and some folks there about all of the downtown redevelopment and what’s going on in the plans for downtown Bothell and the waterfront. So that’s been incredibly interesting, and there’s a lot of work going on and plans for a lot more work to go on over time. The other key point is there’s been a lot of great work going on in terms of looking at public investment and how that can bring in private investment. I think that’s a great example of things that we need to do to help get our economy growing. I think some of the work going on in Bothell is a great example of what we may need to do on a broader level across the district.

that support our education from early learning all the way through higher education. (We need to) work closely with businesses to understand what they need to do to thrive — that means investments in infrastructure. You’ve seen it here, a lot of the work that’s gone on in terms of connecting our educational institutions, like UW-Bothell with medical-device manufacturers in the bio-tech industry there — those are partnerships that help many folks, help people learn and also help create jobs and grow our economy. It happens locally, but we need to look at how we do

that on a broader way across the country. (On running) Is that a good activity for you to clear your head after all the intense days, or do you do some good planning while you’re running? It is a great way to think — you kind of clear your mind. You get to be outside, and especially this time of year, it starts getting incredibly beautiful.

Aided by witnesses’ cell-phone photos, a Bothell Police Department investigator tracked down a loaded tractor-trailer driver who struck a utility pole on State Route 522 in Bothell and drove away from the scene on May 10. From viewing the license plate (which was a Washington plate and not an out-of-state one, as previously reported), the investigator contacted the truck’s owner from a company in Tenino, according to Capt. Denise Langford. The driver, a 48-year-old male, admitted to the hit and run and said he was trying to get to Woodinville, but turned the wrong direction onto SR 522 from Interstate 405. Just before 10 a.m., he drove right onto 101st Avenue Northeast to turn around and hit the pole. The case has been sent to the King County prosecutor for review of hit-and-run charges. According to Deputy Police Chief Henry Simon, at about 10:10 a.m., power went out in the downtown corridor and police blocked off SR 522 between Kaysner Way and SR 527 because the pole extended over some of the lanes. Throughout the day, police first reopened the eastbound SR 522 lanes and redirected westbound SR 522 traffic through downtown Bothell before reopening the remaining lanes. At about 10:30 a.m., Simon said Washington State Patrol was looking for the truck and police were also contacting local businesses who might have worked with the driver.

With student loans and workstudy programs and financial aid, I want to make sure that students still have access to those same opportunities that I did when I was growing up.

Obama visit: an emotional experience for teacher, student Leaning against the wall of Seattle’s Paramount Theatre on May 10, I watched with pride as my Inglemoor High biology teacher of two years, Sue Black, strode confidently onto the brightly lit stage, greeting reporters and audience members at a President Obama campaign fund-raiser. I listened, enrapt, as she told of her battle with cancer and I cried as the President embraced her, the emotion of the past week overwhelming me as I sat witness to my teacher turning the floor over to the most powerful man in the world. As a student, I go to class each day to be greeted by Black’s enthusiasm for her subject and her passion for her students. Seldom do I have the opportunity to consider her political leanings or her personal life. Over the years, however, we’ve developed a friendly relationship. So, when the President embraced her, I stood speechless — not just as her student, but as her friend. And when they came apart, I joined the audience in their applause, momentarily forgetting the camera I had slung across my shoulder and the press crowding me on either side. At that point, the only thing running through my mind were Black’s comments Austin WrightPettibone

to me early Monday afternoon, after she received word she would be introducing President Obama. “Oh my god,” she said. “Oh my god. Austin. I’m introducing the President.” That “oh my god” rang sharply in my mind as they hugged, Black and Obama, my teacher and my President, a surreal experience to witness and an even more surreal one to partake in. For her, this was a dream come true. Crediting the President with the ability to keep her insurance, Black considers Obama her hero and this chance to meet him her opportunity to thank him for everything he had done. “I just kept thinking, ‘this is it, what am I going to say? This is my last opportunity to talk to the President of the United States.’ And

at that point, you heard me say, I said, ‘I’m just going to tell him I love him,’ because I really do.” Black can’t remember what the President said in response and I was too far away to hear it myself, but I think he would have responded in kind. “There’s not one word I could put on it,” Black said of the entire experience, “Maybe the only description I could give you … is the first time I realized my future husband was in love with me back. Your feet don’t touch the ground.” Being there, watching her, neither did mine.

Reader’s impression of downtown Bothell Recently, my wife and I went to lunch in downtown Bothell. After lunch, we walked around town for about an hour. It was very obvious to us that this one-time beautiful small town has come under a strange spell. We noticed the planting strips with more weeds than flowers and plants. Pot holes in a major intersection. Mountains of dirt where a highway is supposed to be. And where is the much ballyhooed McMenamins Pub and Hotel? And what of the unsightly mess from removed buildings on the adjacent property? On our way home, we drove across Interstate 405 on Beardslee Boulevard to 39th Avenue Northeast and turned north. The same orange cones are there marking where 39th floods each year for how many years now? Both the City Council and mayor wonder why they lost the annexation vote? Isn’t it obvious that the “no” votes came from people who actually looked at this town and saw the neglect and waste. When Bothell is managed by those who really care for the town rather than their own interests, maybe

then, we can try this vote again.

by the beige car during the accident. “He thought (the beige car) was in the turn lane, but then realized he was coming straight for him,” Morgan said. “(He) said that he had to go up and over the median into oncoming traffic and then back on to miss him, but he still sideswiped him.” Morgan feels some people may be driving the road for the first time — possibly opting to travel SR 522 to avoid paying tolls on the SR 520 bridge — or may not be familiar with the recent road improvements. Qureshi added about the median in front of her restaurant and drivers darting in and out of nearby establishments: “I’m really thinking this was the wrong thing to do. Whoever made the decision was totally wrong about the businesses, and so many accidents are going to happen.” “Clearly, it’s human error,” said Kenmore city engineer Ron Loewen in a May 9 Reporter meeting with Kenmore Police Chief Cliff Sether and City Manager Rob Karlinsey. “We haven’t seen anything obvious with that left-turn pocket to indicate there’s something wrong with the design or anything like that. The other

A Kenmore police car blocks off a stretch of State Route 522 during the May 7 accident. ANDY NYSTROM, Bothell-Kenmore Reporter left-turn pockets are working well, the lights are all fine, the roadway’s got good marking on it, signing; and it’s just past an intersection, so vehicles for the most part should be traveling a little bit slower, because either they were just stopped or coming (from) left or right turns out of the intersection. That’s an odd situation at that location.” Even if drivers don’t know the road, Sether said it’s well-marked and people need to obey the speed limit of 45 mph and abide by the traffic laws. “There isn’t anything out there on 522 that is a surprise to anybody. It’s got directional signs, so if they just pay attention, it will be like navigating the interstate,” Sether said. Since tolling began on SR 520 this year, Annie Johnson of the Washington

State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) communications department noted that vehicle counters on SR 522 at 68th Avenue Northeast in Kenmore have registered the following statistics since February (the first solid month of SR 522 travel): an average of 1,100 to 1,500 more vehicles are traveling westbound per day; an average of 1,400 to 1,500 additional vehicles are moving eastbound per day. According to WSDOT Northwest Region Traffic engineer Mark Leth: “We can’t speak to the number of collisions since tolling began because we don’t have access to the data yet. The two collisions in the last couple months on SR 522 have been quite remarkable and therefore at the top of everyone’s mind. WSDOT, Kenmore and Bothell have done major safety work out

there with raised curbing to prevent head-on collisions, improved striping and signs — not to mention the roadwidening work.” In the previous Kenmore accident on March 6, a 23-year-old female driver died after her vehicle struck another one on the 6700 block of SR 522. At about 7 a.m., Kristin Berry of Seattle was driving eastbound when she crossed a small median and struck a vehicle heading westbound, according to Sgt. Cindi West, King County Sheriff ’s Office spokeswoman. Two Bothell residents — a 15-year-old girl and her mother — were injured when their SUV rolled over. They were transported to Evergreen Medical Center and were released that afternoon. Sether noted that in the fatality accident, there was no indication of drugs or

alcohol involved, and the current wreck is still under investigation. The chief said he and his officers have responded to a host of other traffic accidents — mostly rearenders — on SR 522, but added that there has been an estimated 50-percent reduction in collisions since the city made major safety improvements along the stretch between 65th Avenue Northeast to the eastern city limits at 83rd Avenue Northeast. “That’s a big deal,” Karlinsey said. “You don’t see 50-percent reductions in anything very often. I think the city’s made a big push to improve 522; they’ve made it a high priority over the years, and City Council still wants to put in a lot of funding and lobby for a lot of money from the state and the feds to finish the last segment.” So far, it’s cost $50 million to install two new signals, upgrade other signals, widen travel lanes, add and extend the BAT (business access and transit) lanes, install curbs, gutters and sidewalks, underground all the utilities and perform landscaping throughout the corridor. It will cost $20 million to do the same from 65th Avenue Northeast to the western city limits at 61st

Avenue Northeast. “But regardless of what we do,” Sether added, “There’s still going to be the human error and the human factor, which basically will always be there and we’ll always have accidents.” With an increase in traffic flow since bridge tolling began, Sether said officers have seen drivers becoming impatient, cutting off others and “actually stopping and cursing at other people and having a few road-rage incidents.” More drivers have been talking on cell phones, as well, and officers are ticketing them accordingly. In order to avoid adding to the accident total on SR 522, Sether advises motorists to focus on their driving, give themselves enough time to reach their destination so they’re not tempted to run a red light or cut someone off. While speed is often a factor in accidents, Loewen said there hasn’t been talk of lowering the 45 mph limit — which is set by WSDOT — on SR 522. “You could reduce the speed limit all you want, it’s up to people to pay attention,” Sether added. “We saw people, regardless of what the speed limit is anywhere, we still write [ more SR 522 page 6 ]

Over the past 40 years, participation in girls high-school sports has increased over 900 percent. We went from 32,000 women who were participating in college athletics in 1972, when I was in college, to almost 200,000 today,” Murray added. “In 1972, fewer than 300,000 women across the country played competitive sports.

He says the more traffic, the more people have to slow down — way down in some cases. “I saw some pretty crazy drivers out there,” he said. “I would see the same car every day, you know, the red Mustang or the red Corvette

BOTHELL SCENE

Over in Bothell, Capt. Bob Woolverton said they haven’t seen a substantial increase in wrecks on SR 522 within their jurisdiction

over the last few months. While walking along SR 522 — which was closed off near downtown Bothell due to last week’s tractor-trailer, power-pole collision — Woolverton noted that, like in Kenmore, engineering improvements aim to make the road safer. For instance, drivers have less opportunities to cross the center line while turning left. The $21.6 million Wayne Curve project was completed at the end of 2011 and plans to relieve congestion on SR 522 at the 96th Avenue Northeast intersection. “Obviously, you know, we have anecdotal evidence that we’ve got more traffic volume since the tolling began on the State Route

brought her and Rapinoe together on the soccer pitch in their early years and later at the University of Portland. Now, they’re with the [ more TITLE IX page 7 ]

520 bridge, and so with the greater traffic volumes, basically what you really need is greater volumes of patience, too,” he said. “Part of that comes from planning your travels, because do you ever notice that when you’re late, it seems like every light’s red and it ruins your commute? As we get more congested, courtesy is a big issue because we’re basically a community on the roadway.” Like Kenmore’s Sether noted, modern technology is a major distraction to drivers, especially when cars are all lined up and ready to punch the gas when the light turns green. Woolverton and his fellow officers experienced this

on a recent day: A female driver’s navigation system took her attention off the road just before Wayne Curve and she started a four-car collision by rear-ending one car while stopped at a light. “We all think to ourselves, ‘We’re too smart for that, it’s not going to happen to us’ — until it happens to us,” Woolverton said. “If you need to search for a phone number, if you need to read a text or send a text or whatever, take the couple minutes, pull off the road, take care of your distraction and then get back into traffic. It’s actually more distracting than you really think it is, and it’s obviously way more dangerous, too.”

HIGH-SCHOOL SCENE

Sen. Murray, who also attended WSU like Bothell High’s Mills, has co-sponsored the High School Sports Information Collection Act with Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine. It is a bill to amend the Education Sciences Reform Act of 2002 to require the statistics commissioner to collect information from co-educational secondary

PHOTOS BY ANDY NYSTROM, Bothell-Kenmore Reporter in an era where it was a given for us; my generation is the benefactors of Title IX.” Boyce ran cross country and track and played basketball at Lakewood High, where she graduated from in 1997. She then attended Western Washington University, coached and taught in Granite Falls and Portland and has been at Bothell High for the last five years. She’s run marathons and is bewildered that the first women’s Olympic marathon wasn’t run until 1984 in Los Angeles, where Joan Benoit won in 2:24:52. Boyce didn’t hear about Title IX until she learned about it in her high-school history class. Nowadays, she teaches young Cougars about it in the civil-rights unit of her

U.S. History class. “I’m so lucky that women that came before us have blazed a path that we then would be able to experience,” Boyce said. “I mean, the thought that my mom grew up in an era in which women were only allowed to play half-court basketball because it (was) deemed to be unhealthy for women or bad things could happen to women. “And her daughter is able to coach?” she added. “Just watching that change that’s happened in that time period is pretty cool if you think about it.” Over at Inglemoor High, Kelly Richards is the assistant cross-country coach and watched one of her runners — Tansey Lystad — earn a

scholarship to Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo last year. Lystad won the 4A state cross-country title and both the 1,600and 3,200-meter races at state during track season. “With the outstanding girls we’ve had at Inglemoor the last couple years, there’s so many more opportunities for them to come after high school. I think a lot of that came from Title IX,” Richards said of scholarships like Lystad’s. Richards, who took a break from her assistant-coaching job with Inglemoor’s track team this spring to help coach her ninth-grade daughter’s track squad at Kenmore Junior High, first starred in track and cross country at Wenatchee High, where she graduated from in 1987.

A year later at Pacific Lutheran University, Richards helped lead her cross-country team to a NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) national championship. The All-American athlete’s team was inducted into the PLU Hall of Fame last fall, and Richards introduced coach Brad Moore into the hall, as well. “He was really focused on the women’s program and on recruiting. I was fortunate to introduce him,” said Richards, who was also an All-American trackster at PLU. Being part of a women’s team — and a national-championship one to boot — was a far cry from when Richards had to play on boys basketball, baseball and soccer teams as a youth. “I didn’t feel like it was anything I could pursue as an athlete,” she said. “We weren’t encouraged that much.” But things soon changed drastically when she entered seventh grade and a girls basketball team was formed. And, of course, in high school and college, Richards was on the fast track to success. Murray added at the Garfield High event: “Title IX has truly changed our country for the better, and the number of women and girls whose lives it touches is growing every single day.”

As she discussed her first-hand experience of Title IX benefits, Murray noted that she could only participate in a few intramural sports at WSU, but 15 years later saw her daughter play on an organized soccer team. “It was so great to watch my own daughter get to choose to play soccer, to learn to be part of a team and cheer each other on and learn how to be gracious in victory and in defeat,” Murray said. Also at Bothell High, boys and girls track-and-field head coach Cathy Boyce’s parents introduced her and her brothers to sports at an early age to keep them out of trouble and focused on their activities on the playing field. “I never would have thought that there was a time period in which females didn’t experience the same athletic opportunities that males had,” Boyce said at practice last week. “I grew up

Weight Loss for Healthy Living By Dr. Sarah Macomber, PT, DPT, ATC at Therapeutic Associates Canyon Park

Many of us have already forgotten about our New Year’s resolutions, but now that we are in spring and getting closer to summer many are beginning to think about weight loss again. A staggering 66% of the American population is overweight or obese and many do not know how to make the changes needed in order to lose weight. According to an article published by the National Institute of Health changes made in the diet, increased exercise, and behavior modification are all necessary to lose weight and improve fitness levels. With these changes you can be better able to enjoy all that summer has to offer. The most common approach to weight loss is dieting. Decreasing the amount of calories you intake is the most beneficial way to lose weight but it must be done carefully. Ideally you should only decrease your calories to the level required to maintain your ideal weight. Cutting too many calories can lead to inadequate nutrition and, studies have shown, results in greater likelihood of

regaining the weight. A calorie deficit of 3,500 calories is required to lose 1 pound. Spread that over a week and that is only a reduction of 500 calories a day. Another way to burn calories is through your exercise program. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention adults should complete 300 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a week. Most of us do not achieve this. Scheduling workout into your day by participating in classes or working out with friends is a great way to make sure you are getting enough exercise and being held accountable to your goals. The final aspect of a proper weight loss program is also the most overlooked. Behavior modification is an important part of losing weight and keeping it off. Many go to extremes with dieting and exercise in order to lose weight but are unable to maintain this in the long run as they fall into old habits. The key is to use your resources and make long term changes in your life. Studies have shown completing a weight loss program under the supervision of a healthcare provider, including your Medical Doctor or

Dealing with kids’ allergies by Swapna Bobba, MD, Family Medicine Lakeshore Clinic

Spring is here and that means it is allergy time for kids of all ages. The most common allergens are pollens, grass, trees, mold, and dust mites. Allergies can be easily aggravated by other inhaled irritants such as cigarette smoke or fragrances. Cold and flu season sometimes extends into spring; by continuing to wash their hands, cover their mouths and noses when coughing etc., your kids can avoid dealing with a cold or flu in addition to their allergies. Some tips for seasonal allergies: 1.       Keep animals out of bedrooms and off the furniture. If your child may be allergic to a classroom pet, speak with school administrators about your concerns. 2.       Throw pillows in the dryer, wash sheets in hot water, and use dust mite covers on bedding and furniture. Vacuum regularly, using a vacuum with a HEPA air filter. 3.       Use a dehumidifier in damp areas, turn on the bathroom fan for 15 minutes after a bath or shower and watch out for mold growth. 4.       Clean the furnace filter every 2-3 months, air ducts every 3-5 years. Don’t smoke or let others smoke around your kids. 5.       Bathe your child before bed to remove pollen from their body. Keep windows and doors closed during your child’s peak allergy season.

More Americans Suffer from Asthma

[Allergies from page 8] want to monitor pollen counts in your area. Common food allergies include milk, eggs, and peanuts. If a trigger food is eaten, mild symptoms can occur such as an upset stomach or rash. More serious anaphylactic reactions include swelling of the throat and difficulty breathing. You should discuss an emergency plan with your doctor. Children who suffer from food allergies may benefit from a consultation with a dietician to learn about alternative foods. Your doctor may also discuss therapies including medications like anti-histamines and/or allergy shots. With the above tips and your doctor’s advice, hopefully, your children and you will be better prepared to enjoy the glorious spring that is around the corner.

ments such as schools by implementing policies and procedures that allow students to successfully manage their asthma. These can include providing access to asthma care clinicians and school nurses, educational and awarenessbuilding programs, training of teachers and school staff, community outreach and so forth. In the home, it is recommended to keep dust and dirt from accumulating. Dust mites are notorious asthma attack triggers. Ventilation and air filtering is equally as important. Pet animals can be a significant source of allergens and should be kept away from asthma sufferers. Exposure to a whole range of potential irritants, including tobacco smoke, wood and coal fire smoke, strong odors from cooking, house-

hold chemicals, paint fumes and cosmetic products should be avoided as well. Even dietary precautions may be necessary. Some food-borne allergens can become triggers and it is crucial to identify and eliminate them as much as possible. Some people may be able to tolerate smaller amounts of foods they are allergic to. Only experience can determine the limits. There is no medication that can cure asthma. But medications are available to control asthma symptoms. There are different types and they come in different forms such as pills, aerosol inhalers, powder inhalers, liquids and injections.

Asthma rates in the United States have been on the rise over the past decade and are now at an all-time high, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Almost 26 million Americans had asthma in 2010, the last time data on the disease were reported. Seven million of those were children and adolescents. According to the CDC, asthma ranks among the leading chronic illnesses affecting young people. It is one of the most frequent causes of school absenteeism. About 10 percent of school children miss classes because of asthma at least once a year. Especially low-income populations are at an increased risk. 11.2 percent of Americans living below the poverty line are reportedly affected. Females seem more prone to developing the disease than males. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways. This can include narrowing of the bronchial tubes, swelling of the bronchial tube lining and an increase of mucus secretion to the point where the airways become blocked. In case of a so-called asthma attack, a person’s airways are so obstructed that it becomes difficult to breath, which can

lead to a life-threatening situation. Thanks to faster intervention and preventive treatments, death rates in connection with asthma have dropped by a third compared to 10 years ago. Asthma is often misdiagnosed as allergies. Not all people who experience allergy symptoms have asthma. Like allergies, asthma is associated with exposure to allergens and also smoking, chemicals and air pollution. Identifying and controlling potential triggers of asthma attacks is crucial for effective treatment. Although there is no known cure or even prevention of asthma, multiple steps can be taken to limit exposure to allergens and other irritants. The CDC recommends the creation of more asthma-friendly environ-

The two main types of medications are anti-inflammatories and bronchodilators. Anti-inflammatories reduce swelling and mucus production in the airways. They can lower the intensity of asthma symptoms and allow for better airflow. Bronchodilators relax the muscles around the airways, thereby easing breathing. Bronchodilators are especially effective during asthma attacks. The primary purpose of taking asthma medications is to control and relieve. Most asthma medications must be taken regularly, often daily. So-called reliever or rescue medicines are only to be used during acute attacks. How often an asthma patient has to take medications depends on the sever-

all too often people ignore their retirement needs until retirement is almost upon them. Retirement will be considerably easier if you plan for it well in advance. In fact, planning for it from your first job on is not a bad idea.

The funding for most retirements comes from a combination of sources, including social security, a company retirement plan, and the individual’s own retirement and investment program. Some people never completely retire, but instead continue to work either full-time or part-time after they have reached retirement age. During retirement, the expenses of buying a home and raising a family are usually gone, but other costs such as health care could be considerably higher. It’s been estimated that most retirees will need at least 66% of pre-retirement income. An active retiree may need closer to 80% of pre-retirement income to pay for added travel and leisure activity costs. Are you prepared financially to maintain the standard

Bothell High seniors get the message in DUI drill BY ANDY NYSTROM anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

Bothell High’s Austen Dahl reacts in disbelief after he was involved in a “deadly” accident that killed Abby Leonard in a DUI drill at the school last week. ANDY NYSTROM, Bothell-Kenmore Reporter

Nik Gray didn’t like seeing his friends, Abby Leonard and Austen Dahl, involved in a “deadly” two-car accident — even if it was a DUI drill at Bothell High. On May 10, while the senior class watched and some upcoming graduates participated, Bothell Fire and EMS staged the event, which featured two wrecked cars, “injured and deceased” students and a host of emergency vehicles and a helicopter to drive home the message that drinking and driving don’t mix. “Seeing my friends hurt, that was pretty deep,” Gray said, adding

that he heard the no-drinking-anddriving bulletin loud and clear. “That’s been a thing that my mom has made pretty clear to me not to do, under any circumstance not to ever do that.” Added Dahl, who was the drunken driver in the drill: “It’s definitely going to be one of those heavy-weighted things that makes it so I don’t want to drink and drive. It’s really shown me what’s going to happen if I do get a DUI or something like that happens — and getting arrested is not fun in any case.” Leonard played the dead girl in the drill, stretched across the hood of one car in a green prom dress.

It was an emotional experience for the senior, who hammered the day’s message home in a sorrowful speech — from the victim’s perspective — to her classmates. “It was hard putting yourself in those shoes,” she told the Reporter. “If that was actually to happen, having to not see my sister graduate or having to (not) say goodbye to my mom… it was very emotional.” Bothell Police Chief Carol Cummings said that drinking or using drugs while driving can have an impact on everyone involved in an accident. “Those consequences will affect the friends that they may kill or

injure, their future of where they go, whether they’re going to go to college or whether they’re going to spend the next several years in jail,” she said. Bothell High principal Bob Stewart attended the funeral of two of his students — who died in a drinkingand-driving accident — at a different school 28 years ago. “It stays with me to this day,” he told the students. “Please, for everybody who loves you, and that includes me, make good choices as we move through the year-end. I want all of you to be at commencement, I want all of you to get to that college or whatever it is you’re doing next fall.”

Justin Li passed the ball to Abdi 25 yards out on the right side and he then dribbled to his left to the top of the 18-yard box and unleashed a shot that found the mark inside the far left post, according to coach Kevin McGibbon. Goalkeeper James Takami made five saves, including two big ones in the last five minutes. He first went one-on-one with a Newport forward and knocked the ball off his foot. On the next save, he tipped a screaming Newport shot over the top of the cross bar. On May 8, Abdi scored in the 14th minute to give Inglemoor the lead, but Issaquah tallied in the 60 and 73 minutes to win, 2-1, and end Inglemoor’s season at 5-9-3 overall.

Bothell woman arrested for first-degree murder of Everett man STAFF REPORT

The Everett Police Department Major Crimes Unit arrested a 27-yearold Bothell woman on May 6 in connection with the April 24 stabbing death of Luis Verduzco, according to Lt. Robert Goetz in a press

release. Detectives developed information that the suspect — identified in jail records as Sarah Hellerud — and two others planned to rob the victim of drugs. The suspect and her accomplices’ allegedly picked up the victim in

a car and attempted to steal his drugs. When he resisted, the suspect stabbed Verduzco and then pushed him out of the car. Investigators learned that the suspect was staying in an apartment in the 6700 block of Fleming Street in

Everett. When they went there, they found the suspect and arrested her without incident. After an interview with detectives, the suspect was transported and booked at the Snohomish County Jail on the charge of first-degree murder. At about 6:20 p.m.

on April 24, officers responded to 22 W. Madison St. in Everett after receiving a call from a neighbor reporting a man down in the back yard. When officers arrived, they located a man, 20 to 30 years old, lying on the ground behind the

garage; the home was vacant and believed to be bank owned. Everett Fire personnel confirmed that the man was deceased, and an initial assessment of the victim showed what appeared to be trauma to the torso area of his body.

Police seek suspects in Bothell robbery STAFF REPORT

At approximately 8:41 p.m. May 6, an armed robbery occurred at the Yakima Fruit Market located at 17321 State Route 522 in Bothell. Two men entered the business after closing and forced the night manager into the business office at gunpoint. The men demanded the manager open the safe. The market’s security camera recorded the incident, and in the video one of the suspects could be seen brandishing a handgun. The market’s night manager, identified as a 26-year-old Bothell man, was the only employee in the business. He complied with their demands by giving them an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspects secured the manager’s hands behind his back and forced him to the floor before fleeing. The suspects left on foot, and no suspect vehicle was seen. The manager was not injured during the robbery.

Please sign an on-line memorial at washelli.com 626091

The life of Don Nettleton will be celebrated at a memorial to be held on Sunday, May 20th, at 2 pm at the Northshore United Church of Christ in Woodinville. Don died peacefully on April 14th at Evergreen Hospice, surrounded by his wife of 52 years, Jane and his 3 children Brian, Scott, and Jennifer. Born in Eugene, Oregon to Violet and Marvin Nettleton, Don and his two brothers grew up in Salem, Oregon. The family was active in the Congregational Church, where Don met his future wife Jane in Sunday School; but it wasn’t until she asked him to the Junior/Senior Prom in high school that they had their first date. Don worked summer jobs at the local cannery for money to buy his 1948 Plymouth coup for $50. He started at the Oregon College of Education, and during his 2nd year, he and Jane got married on January 15, 1960. The next two summers, the couple worked at a US Forest Service fire lookout, where, when their first son was born during the second summer, Don washed many a tub of diapers by hand. For the next few years, Don worked in the grocery business, until he returned to college at Oregon State University to earn a degree in Forest Management in 1970. He then joined the Northern Pacific Railroad’s resources division in Longview, then Seattle, and then Missoula, Montana, working his way up to become Assistant Vice President at Burlington Northern Resources. In 1984, Don was transferred back to Seattle, where he worked for what was then Plum Creek Timber until retirement in June 2002. During his 32-year forestry career, Don was involved with many land exchanges with the U.S. Forest Service, and helped write laws governing exchanges subsequently passed in the US Congress. He also played an important part in creating what is now a national monument: After Mt. St. Helens erupted in 1980, Don was involved with the donation of the top of the mountain—then owned by Plum Creek—to the federal government. Although he was an important and busy businessman, Don Nettleton quietly and humbly also had a big impact on the towns where he lived. He was president of the Kiwanis Club in Missoula, then active (including two terms as president) of the Northshore Kiwanis. He was an integral member of the Northshore United Church of Christ (UCC), and also was very active in the Pacific Northwest Conference of the UCC, chairing its Board for two terms. For six years, he served on the Board of Directors at the Horizon House in Seattle. When not working or volunteering, Don could be found camping with the family on weekends, fly-fishing in the middle of a stream, and later he and Jane took off often with their travel trailer. He was an avid gardener, a builder—of gazebo, deck, waterfall—and “Mr. Fix It” until his Alzheimer’s Disease robbed him of his many skills. He and Jane moved in 2008 into the Emerald Heights community in Redmond, where Jane has been enormously grateful for the wonderful care Don received as his disease progressed. Don is survived by his brother Allan (wife Aileen), his wife Jane, and children Brian (wife Joylene and daughters Margaret and Wendy); Scott (wife Claire and children Eric Riley, Sean, and Caroline); and daughter Jennifer Wilmoth (husband Kevin and children Stephanie Yoshida and Austin Shields). As befit his life of quiet work, volunteering and long friendships, his last weeks at the Evergreen Hospice were filled with visits from family and friends coming from all over the country to show their love and respect for this giant of a man. The family invites friends to join them for the memorial of Don’s life, and/or to give a donation in his honor to the Northshore Kiwanis club, Northshore United Church of Christ, or the Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Association.
