Spirits hit shelves across Washington BY NAT LEVY Bellevue Reporter

people an alternative to turning to gangs or other means of gaining stability. So rather than just loaning out money, the group is quite literally, lending peace. Jordan, also a sub-district qualifier for the Saints in track and field, became interested in micro-finance after reading about how direct donations in the wake of the Haiti earthquake eventually carried some unintended consequences.

Amid massive fanfare, and fear over price changes, liquor hit the shelves of thousands of Washington grocery stores June 1. Most who strolled through the newly stocked liquor aisles were simply curious about what the changeover would do to their pocketbooks. But price changes to a lot of common brands didn’t scare away a steady stream of buyers. “I don’t mind paying a few bucks more,” said Jonnathon McCoy at the Factoria QFC location. “You pay for the accessibility.” McCoy counts himself as one of the 1,128,904 citizens who voted in favor of Initiative 1183, a measure highly funded by Costco that closed all Washington State Liquor Stores and allowed retailers over 10,000 square feet to sell spirits. The move to sell spirits in grocery stores represents a long fight at the ballot box. Several previous initiatives failed, but in 2011 voters approved the measure with a total of 58 percent in favor. Once the excitement died down, potential sticker shock set in. Customers were worried about wholesale markups. The results when prices came out was mixed. The larger brands - Jack Daniels, Smirnoff etc. - featured prices roughly similar to state charges in the past. “If you have production of as much as a million bottles per year, which many of these big companies do, you can afford to take a lower margin to drop the price on the shelf,” said one liquor industry expert, who didn’t want to be named. Smaller brands, many of which are just as recognizable, were the ones most hit by the change. The insider said some types of Evan Williams bourbon and Vikingfjord Vodka have nearly doubled in price. The other piece of sticker shock to be aware of could come at the register. At most stores,

Police are searching for a man who attempted to attack a 23-year-old Bellevue woman June 1. At 11:30 p.m. that night a woman exited a bus at Lakemont Boulevard and Newport Way. Police said a man quickly took the stop and began to follow the woman on foot. He then grabbed her from behind and attempted to drag her away. She resisted, but the man punched her several times in the face and knocked her down. Police said the woman was able to get to her pepper spray and use it on the suspect, causing him to flee the scene. A K-9 track was unsuccessful in locating the suspect. There was no surveillance camera in the bus. Both the victim and the bus driver described the suspect as a noticeably pale, white man in his mid-twenties, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, thin build, with a shaved head, thin mustache. He was seen wearing a white polo shirt with brown horizontal stripes and baggy blue jeans. Police urge anyone who recognizes the suspect to call 911.

ity of Nrityalaya School of Dance has exploded with the influx of Indian immigrants in recent years and now has around 60 students, ranging from age 7 to adult. The focus of the school is cultural appreciation for a generation of Indian students with only a fleeting connection to the culture and native land of their parents. “Everything is about learning and culture,” Vinod said. “Down to the dress we wear and the concepts we take on.” Aside from an opportunity to take part in a timeless and integral part of Indian culture, Nrityalaya students gain a connection to the Indian community at large. The group will perform Saturday in the theatre at Lake Washington High School with “Dharmo Rakshathi Rakshithaha,” which translates to “Righteousness protects those who protect it.” Local students include: Archana Srinivasan, Bellevue; Sharanya Sarathy, Bellevue; Junior Dancers: Tanvi Ganapathy, Bellevue; Kavya Selvakumar, Bellevue.

EDITORIAL

Dancing across culture, generations For any generation, regardless of culture, there are societal bonds that link otherwise disconnected individuals. From wars and tragedy to entertainment and politics, members of the same generation are tied together with the thread of a shared perspective on the experiences that define them. But in the years that separate mother from daughter, a space where handed-down traditions are abandoned and tales from elders forgotten, there exists chasms of misunderstanding. In this case, the gap between the generations is half a world wide. Vineeta Parupudi and Nikhila Sridhar, ages 14 and 15 and students at Kirkland’s International Community School, know their own upbringing on the Eastside can never offer a complete picture of the Indian heritage their parents know. Instead they settle for snippets of a world they have never known; evenings spent inside Veda Temple in Redmond, where the strip mall exterior does nothing to alter the reverence and cultural richness within. Along with around a dozen others, the two are there as part of Nrityalaya Dance school, practicing for an upcoming performance in Kirkland that will showcase hours of work and more importantly, the cultural connection they so desperately crave. “My mom was a dancer in India,” Parupudi said. “Dancing makes me feel Josh Suman like I’m connecting to India and the culture.” While their 21st Century Western childhoods can approximate the experiences of past generations to only a degree, Nrityalaya and the chance to connect with the Indian community at-large certainly helps. “I love the cultural immersion,” said Sahana Cidambi, also a 15-year-old and a student at Redmond High School. “I really value and take pride in the culture and the chance to be part of it.” The performance is the culmination of months of rehearsal and another step in the process of becoming a guru of the discipline, should they choose such a path. While using dance to bridge the generational and cultural gaps for local Indian women is the principle focus, work ethic and collective consciousness also take center stage and connect the focal points of the school with common American ideals. “It’s just a different experience,” Sridhar said. “Dancing makes the connection more real for us. It’s more than just the stories.” Josh Suman: 425-453-5045; jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

Gun violence in Seattle hits home I got into a digital conversation with a co-worker about how bad gun violence seems to have gotten just across the bridge on the morning of May 30. The brief three-sentence conversation took place just after she saw a tweet that there was another shooting in Seattle. That same friend sent me another message, something to the effect of: “It was at Cafe Racer in Seattle, gunman left on foot and still at large.” My heart sank to the floor. The first thing that popped into my head was Matt Phelps that my sister and her family live just blocks from Cafe Racer. I know Cafe Racer because my band played there in April. Getting the paper out became secondary to getting ahold of my sister. I called her house with no answer. I called her cell with no answer. I called my brotherin-law at work and he found out she was at the U-Village but didn’t talk to her. My panic was replaced with new concerns as I saw a tweet saying that my nephew’s school was in lockdown

because of the shooting. Just after sending the final page of the paper to press my sister called me back wanting to know if lockdown meant she could go pick up my nephew from school. I was just relieved to hear her voice because you always think the worst, no matter how unlikely. Next came news of another shooting in downtown Seattle, just blocks from where my brother-in-law works. That shooting would later hit even closer to home as the victim was Gloria Leonidas of Bellevue, a long-time Evergreen Health Foundation board member. To make things even more unnerving for my sister and me, the gunman committed suicide just a few miles from where I grew up in West Seattle. Like most people, I was glued to the radio, TV and Internet during the rest of the day. I had met quite a few of the regulars at Cafe Racer when my band played there. Cafe Racer was an unusual place to play. Very small, very intimate and inviting. There was a gigantic picture of Jesus made from marshmallow Peeps. Quite a few paintings on black velvet and a bejeweled motor scooter helped to make up Seattle’s only “Bad Art Gallery.”

After we played we hung out outside to give room to those wanting to see the last band of the night. The kitchen had closed and the cook came out to have a cigarette. He and a bunch of my friends struck up a conversation about the music, the venue and various other things. It turns out that he was one of the victims of the horrific shooting on May 30 and will hopefully survive. It was sad to think that kind, intelligent man was in the hospital fighting for his life. There is something wrong with our society when someone with mental health and anger management issues is able to obtain a concealed weapon’s permit. Three different news sources quoted the murderer’s family members saying they were afraid something like this would happen. The inevitable arguments have ensued over gun rights and laws. There has even been some commentary about government cuts to mental health resources. But in reality this type of incident is hard to predict, hard to prevent, it can happen anywhere and affects us all. Matt Phelps: 425-822-9166 ext. 5052; mphelps@kirklandreporter.com

Beloved teacher retires after 47 years on the job BY KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

More than 500 friends, family members and former students gathered at the commons at Bellevue High School Sunday afternoon for an emotional send-off to longtime Medina Elementary School teacher Jeannine Rogel. After 47 years of teaching in Bellevue, Rogel will retire this month. Currently teaching fifth grade at Medina Elementary, Rogel has built quite the career: making national headlines for her ground-breaking computer-programming lessons in the early 90s, restoring a 1928 Oldsmobile Coupe as a class project, taking field trips to local businesses - and around the world. But what seems to be Rogel’s most remarkable trait is her love for the students she has taught. Rogel said part of loving kids is to expect the best they can give. This is a mantra that has stuck with, and inspired Rogel everyday. It’s also the philosophy that led Rogel’s demanding curriculum of Readin’, wRitin’ & ‘Rithmetic - and the topic of many stories at Sunday’s celebration. Emceed by former students Kathryn Barrett (1972) and Carla Erickson Orlando (1970), Sunday’s tribute featured a variety of skits, songs and testimonials inspired by Rogel and her “out of the box” teaching methods. Don Helling, a student in Rogel’s inaugural class of 1965, reminisced about the memorable field trip through Underground Seattle 47 years ago. As Helling noted, Rogel had to persuade administrators to allow her to take the students on a tour that commenced in a bar. “What I remember is a field trip to the Blue Banjo Tavern,” Helling teased. Former students Ben Gibson (1994) and David Vasen (1990)

PROSSER, Bellevue Reporter

elaborated on Rogel’s impact, claiming the things they learned in Rogel’s class are among the most difficult things they’ve ever tackled. “I had no idea fourth grade could be so difficult,” Vasen said. But the most touching tribute of all may have come from Paloma Piñeda, a student of Rogel’s from 1997-1999, who still holds the record as the student who read the most books in one year. Piñeda surprised a teary-eyed Rogel, taking the stage to express the many ways in which the teacher inspired her throughout her educational career. A 2012 graduate of Yale University, Piñeda thanked Rogel for challenging her in ways she never imagined she could be challenged. “You pushed me to spell, understand, and most importantly,

actually use, most of the words I would ever need for the SAT or GRE - which I’m taking on Wednesday - so thanks,” Piñeda explained. Piñeda also attributed Rogel’s demand for excellence and love of travel as inspiration for her “insatiable travel bug.” A participant in Rogel’s educational trips to Washington, DC and London, Piñeda has since traveled to Mali, Ghana, Argentina, France and the Dominican Republic for a variety of educational programs and internships. This fall she’ll be moving to New York City. Additional tributes included a poem by longtime friend and colleague Joegil Lundquist, whose grandson was a student of Rogel’s at Medina, and whose books on Latin and Greek roots have been staples in Rogel’s class for the past 10 years. “What I like about being around Jeannine’s class is that she sees everyone as an individual,” Lundquist remarked. “They aren’t ‘the kids.’ They are Jacqueline and Damon and all these people - she pulls out the individuality of each child.” In addition to teaching, Rogel has worked as an advocate of drama productions in the Eastside community, helping to produce such plays as “The Hobbit,” and “The Wizard of Oz.” As part of the festivities, a handful of the Oz cast members thanked Rogel for her passion and encouragement, and for teaching them “there is no place like home.” Weaved throughout the tales of persuasive essays, poetry, ecology lessons, multiplication tests and more, was a theme of love and appreciation for a woman who has given everything and more for ‘her kids,’ - both in the classroom and beyond. “Your presence in our lives extended to soccer games, family visits, birthday celebrations and choir concerts,” Piñeda attested. “You were more than a teacher. You were, and are, a member of our family.”

Yacht club inducts Pieretti as first female commodore KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

It was a day of celebration at Bellevue’s Meydenbauer Bay Yacht Club June 2, as members gathered for their annual Change of Watch ceremony. A staple of the Eastside community for 66 years, this year’s ceremony marked an especially momentous occasion as Loretta Pieretti took the reigns as commodore - the first female to hold the position in the club’s history. Pieretti, a member of the club since 1993, has spent the past three years rising through the ranks (or “chairs”) to become commodore; she previously held the position of Mates’ President, Fleet Captain, Rear Commodore and Vice Commodore. Before becoming an active member of the yacht club, Pieretti worked for 13 years in the corporate division at Nordstrom and managed her own lighting company. Led by Ken Case, commodore for the 2010-2011 season, the ceremony featured the presentation of more than 30 dignitaries and previous commodores, some dating back to 1975. The ceremony also featured a touching send-off to current

commodore, Greg Abell, who thanked the club for giving him the opportunity and privilege to lead, and an introduction of Pieretti as the new commodore. As is tradition, Pieretti took the oath to uphold the bylaws of the club, devote her best efforts to the position, be loyal to the club and its interests, and to do anything within reason to promote and advance the status of the Meydenbauer Bay Yacht Club during her year as commodore. Following her induction, she presented the incumbent officers with their flags and spoke to how proud she is to take on her new role. “I’m constantly amazed by the talent of the people I work with,” Pieretti said, before closing the ceremony with a gleeful request to get the party started. In addition to bringing nearly 200 club members to the docks, the Change of Watch ceremony proved to be a reunion of sorts for Pieretti, as 16 relatives - who traveled from as far as Boston - came to celebrate her achievement. Also in attendance were Pierreti’s husband, Art “King Arthur” Pieretti, and a handful of close friends. As commodore, Pieretti will spend the next year overseeing

The night closed at the clubhouse, with a New Orleans themed dinner for members and guests. Keegan Prosser: 425-453-4602; kprosser@bellevuereporter.com

SINGLE-VISIT CERAMIC RESTORATIONS

Patients desiring the latest in tooth-restoration technology need look no further than CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), which utilizes a camera, computer, and milling machine to fabricate a precise tooth-colored, singletooth restoration. CEREC enables the dentist to create everything from veneers to full crowns in a single office visit, without impressions, temporaries, or second office visits. All this is accomplished by using a special camera to take a picture of the damaged tooth, the image of which is displayed on a screen. Next, the dentist uses CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology to design a restoration, which is then milled from ceramic material using CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology. Within one hour, the patient can enjoy beautifully restored teeth. P.S. The ceramic material used to produce a CEREC restoration is tooth-colored to its core, which creates an attractive, natural-looking replacement tooth. Could your smile benefit from tooth restoration? Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. At NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, we are passionate about preventive dentistry and recommend regular dental check-ups for all family members.

OPENING A NEW DOOR Bellevue man comes out of retirement to run franchise

BY NAT LEVY Bellevue Reporter

Retirement isn’t for everyone. Many spend their whole lives pining for the days of sitting around doing nothing. When Darrel Bahner reached that point, he got bored. So what did he do? Go to work at a grocery store? Volunteer for a nonprofit? No, he opened his own door construction and installation franchise, HomeStory. The 32-year veteran of west coast ports had always enjoyed home remodels. Bahner said he has remodeled 10 homes in his life as a hobby. He learned how difficult, and valuable nice doors could be, and it felt like a natural fit. “You don’t have the mess and hassle of tearing the old jams out and casings off and doing the trim,” Bahner said. His business gives remodelers a

chance to delegate this time-consuming duty at an affordable price. The store charges $195 for installation of a new door. It’s been a little more than a month now, and Bahner said he is still trying to get his name out there. Located at 12021 Northup Way, just across the street from home improvement giant Lowe’s, Bahner’s newly-minted franchise provides an alternative. At this point, the store only has four employees, all younger individuals Bahner is mentoring. Bahner has always been interested in teaching his skills. Each of his four children have participated in his remodels. This family emphasis in Bahner’s work goes way back. After studying animal sciences at the University of Nebraska he came to Alaska in the 1970s during the construction of Trans-Alaska

Pipeline. He was lured by the high wages his two brothers earned in construction there. His eldest brother, now 82 years old, built, lived in and sold 11 different homes in his life. “I always appreciated what he could do, and I thought if he could do it, I could do it,” Bahner said. While Bahner plans to pour everything he’s got into the store, it’s only a short-term plan. He likes to do things in five-year stints. His wife will retire soon, and he doesn’t plan to own the store for longer than five years. He hopes to build the business for someone, maybe one of his kids, or a current coworker to inherit down the road. This time, he really will enjoy his retirement. “I want to have a small farm some day and raise cows and provide some animal experiences for my grandkids,” he said.

Mike Huycke, Northwest Area President for Republic Services, commended both sides for the high level of integrity and respect demonstrated throughout the process. “Labor negotiations can require an extraordinary amount of effort from all who are involved,” said Huycke. “As negotiations were underway, we saw an incredible amount of patience, understanding and collaboration between Republic and Local 117.

2011 a big year for Meydenbauer Center BY NAT LEVY Bellevue Reporter

The Meydenbauer Center saw its biggest annual growth, and had the second highest operating revenue in its nearly 20-year history in 2011. The resurgence in the center’s bottom line comes after two bad years. In 2008, Meydenbauer had its best year ever, but the economy dropped and so did business for the Eastside’s largest gathering place. The center’s revenue dropped 22 percent in 2009 and stayed flat the following year. The big increase, a growth of 17 percent in 2011, can be attributed to a number of large national corporations holding company-wide meetings and conventions. “It was exciting to see they were in a place to bring those large groups together to celebrate and learn,” said Sharon Linton, marketing and communications manager

Meydenbauer Center saw a surge in revenue growth in 2011, primarily due to an increase in large company gatherings at the venue. COURTESY PHOTO for Meydenbauer Center. The primary purpose of the center has always been for large groups and conventions, said Operations Manager Tim Carr. Company meetings and conventions and

other bookings fell off in the slim years for the venue, which can hold as many as 3,500 people for an event. Carr said the center staffing has to remain flexible and able to respond to both growth potential and economic setbacks. In those leaner times, Meydenbauer was a great resource for local nonprofits. This year, organizations raised more than $7.5 million, the most since 2008, in 36 nonprofit events. Going forward, the center is looking to diversify the events it hosts. Weekend conventions are the next frontier, Carr said. Events such as cheerleading competitions

and a recent bodybuilding convention show the range of events Meydenbauer wants to see. Considered a primary economic engine for the city, the overall goal is to get more people to travel to Bellevue, stay in its hotels, and spend money at its shops, Carr said. This concept was the driving force behind Meydenbauer’s tourism campaign, Visit Bellevue Washington (http://www.visitbelleuvewashington.com). The website debuted in June after more than two years of planning. The site gives an overview of what to do in the city, and local company Expedia partnered with the site to make booking accommodations simple for potential visitors. Coming up on its 20-year anniversary, Meydenbauer remains an important part of Bellevue’s future. Not just for its ability to help nonprofits and local business, but its ability as a draw for large national companies to hold meetings, even if they have no connection to Bellevue. “I think the investment is paying off,” said Councilmember John Chelminiak, the council liaison to the center. “It’s an important element of the city, and it’s important to have that meeting space and convention space.”

Woman killed in Seattle Council discusses location of downtown fire station shooting spree remembered for healthcare efforts Gloria Leonidas, a Bellevue woman killed last week in Seattle, was praised by EvergreenHealth for her vision and service on the organizations’s board. Leonidas was one of five people killed May 30 by a man who went on a shooting spree. “We grieve with Gloria’s family and each of the lives she touched through her important work with the EvergreenHealth Foundation and beyond, the organization said in a press release. Leonidas served on the foundation’s board from 2002 to 2012. “During her tenure on the foundation board, Gloria touched many lives and her crowning legacy will be remembered by many as EvergreenHealth’s annual Gala, which is responsible for raising over $7.5 million to support the care of the Eastside community. “We express our deepest sympathies for the loss of Gloria and honor her life’s innumerable contributions which will benefit many generations to come,” the statement said.

The City Council Monday looked into the possibility of locating both a fire station and community center in one building at Ashwood Park. Councilmembers leaned away from the idea, arguing for more consideration of other locations for a fire station. Ashwood Park is about two acres of lawn, including a small baseball diamond, with a parking lot, between Northeast 10th and 12th streets. Although undersized for official use, it is used informally for soccer, baseball and other activities. City staff has been looking for

possible sites for a new downtown fire station since 2002, when it was projected that a significant increase in the residential population, in new highrises at the city’s core, would necessitate quicker response than possible from Station 1, at 766 Bellevue Way. An appropriate city-owned site would reduce the projected cost of a new station by an estimated $3 million. Fire Chief Mike Eisner noted that the call volume downtown increased by just 8 percent from 2007 to 2011, so the need is not urgent. Eisner and Parks & Community Ser-

vices Director Patrick Foran discussed whether a combined facility merited study. Such a building could house a fire station on the first floor and a community center on the second, above underground parking, on the north side of the park, leaving most of the field open. Several councilmembers argued against locating a fire station at the park, noting concerns about potential impacts from noise and lighting on nearby residences. They asked staff to continue looking for downtown sites for a station.

LENDING PEACE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

“There was a huge influx of free food, which was obviously a good thing,” Jordan said. “But it bankrupted many of the businesses that still existed and when the charity ran dry, they were left in an even worse state.” The reality of direct donations, Jordan said, is that while they provide for an immediate need, they do not aid the sustained progress or redevelopment of a community. That’s where Lending Peace steps in, lending small amounts that can have a major impact. Thus far, it has connected with eight people in countries from Ghana to Senegal and Iraq to provide start-up money or expansion costs. The clients are small business owners who can use the micro-loans (as little as $25) to purchase inventory, improve infrastructure or hire employees to help increase production capacity. Unlike traditional lenders that focus primarily on macro-loans in firstworld countries, Lending Peace’s unique standing as a nonprofit financier allows it to lend amounts that are practical for those in impoverished communities or underdeveloped regions. The results thus far have been encouraging. “It’s cool seeing the money have an impact on people’s lives,” Jordan said. “What’s even better than loaning the money is the repayment because that means they are not only using the money, but are becoming sustainable enough to repay it.” The organization has hosted concerts for local bands, been part of a promotion at Peak’s Frozen Yogurt and Rudy’s

Barbershop and later this month will hold an outing to a Mariners game with discounted tickets. Jordan said his goal with any fundraiser is to make it something that others can become excited about and want to be involved in. “I don’t like to go around just asking for money,” Jordan said. “The fundraisers are always events, something that people can have fun with.” His long term goal is to build Lending Peace into a self-sustaining, autonomous fundraising and micro-loaning organization. In the interim, he has teamed with Kiva, an international fundraising outlet that partners micro-lenders around the world with fundraising outfits such as Lending Peace. Partnering with Kiva, which stations people around the world to give its lenders a face, also allows Jordan to focus his time on the fundraising arm of the organization, rather than becoming overwhelmed with the back-end financing or being forced to pay hired help. “There are always continual costs associated with loaning money,” he said. “Right now, it is nice because I don’t have to pay anyone a salary.” While he eventually hopes to complete a degree and pursue a career in finance, Lending Peace is also in the plans for Jordan’s future. After founding the organization and watching it continue to grow, he can’t imagine abandoning it. “I thought it was cool to use finance in a positive way,” Jordan said. “We want to continue to raise the pool of money for those loans and keep the process going.” Josh Suman: 425-453-5045 jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

Rochele Anderson, Bellevue Way Safeway manager, in the store’s liquor aisle the night before sales began. The store began selling spirits in Washington at 6 a.m. June 1. NAT LEVY, Bellevue Reporter

SPIRITS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

prices listed on the shelves are pre-tax. The state has a 20.5 percent spirit tax, and an additional charge of $3.77 for every liter, which equates to approximately $3 for a 750 ml bottle, and more than $6 for a half-gallon. Some stores, such as Bartell’s, created price tags that showed both the pre-tax and post-tax amounts customers can expect to pay. Stores with special benefits for cardholders put out significant savings for their members. Safeway on Bellevue Way, and the Factoria QFC both showed deals for members saving as much as $10-$15 on certain types of liquor. Friday’s big day was still in jeopardy as

late as the day before. May 31, the State Supreme Court struck down a challenge to I-1183 by a 5-4 vote to clear the final hurdle for spirit sellers. Many at stores said it will take some time getting used to the prices, but they were generally pleased to not have to go out of their way to find a state store. Harry Narloe grabbed a bottle of Grey Goose Vodka off the shelves at Factoria at a pretax price of $27.49, a total near $36. State liquor stores sold the same 750 ml bottle for $34.95. Narloe got a good deal it turns out, even though he was prepared to spend more for the convenience. “(The prices) can be a bit bad, but for the ease of access it’s worth it,” he said.

Officers attempted to get in touch with him verbally using a bullhorn and through text messages and Facebook. All of those methods were unsuccessful, police said. Police said the 39-year-old man was upset due to a recent breakup with his girlfriend.

Newport alum Hagensen talks title Stacey Hagensen graduated from Newport in 2008 after earning KingCo MVP honors during her senior softball season and being named to the all-league team for the third time during her time as a prep. She continued her career at Pacific Lutheran University and led the program to its first ever National Championship as a senior in 2012.

Hagensen finished the season with a record of 28-5 in the circle, including a complete game, three-hit shutout of rival and defending National Champion Linfield in the title game.

REPORTER: What was your biggest key to success this year? HAGENSEN: The group of girls, our team just made it so much fun to play. Everyone on the team wanted each other to do well. It was nice to have that and have everyone be fun to hang around and hardworking. People wanted to be there and put in that extra time, people were hitting and working out on their own.

the game was over. The final out in the National Championship game was a dropped third strike, so it was kind of different because we knew we had her, but the catcher still had to throw to first. It was kind of slow motion, everyone just standing still and watching that throw to the first baseman.

back on the season you had and the way your career all ended? HAGENSEN: Definitely, I still feel like I should show up at fall ball practice. It’s just been an awesome four years. It almost feels like it’s not even over yet. It’s going to be weird.

Three from Newport named All-State in girls water polo

REPORTER: After they won the title last year and being a conference and Pacific Northwest rival, did it feel extra special to beat Linfield? HAGENSEN: It kind of helped us out that we played them in the championship game because we had seen them so many times and we weren’t nervous. We may have freaked out playing the defending national champions, but it just seemed like another game. REPORTER: Of all the recognition you and the team have received from winning the championship, what was the most unexpected? HAGENSEN: I won the Honda Sports Award D-III Player of the Year. My coach called today and said they are flying me to Los Angeles for the presentation. REPORTER: Talk about your approach in the circle. HAGENSEN: I don’t really throw fastballs. Our pitching coach focuses a lot on spins and getting it to move correctly and I’ve had a lot of improvement on my movement. REPORTER: You have done some work coaching kids and helping out at softball camps. What is your favorite part about working with kids and teaching the game? HAGENSEN: The best part of working with kids is seeing them finally get it and watch them improve. They obviously have fun getting better and it is great to see that too. REPORTER: What is your message to the girls you teach and coach? HAGENSEN: I tell them it should be fun for you and also a great way to meet people. But you have to work hard if you want to have success, like with anything. For girls that are thinking about playing in college, I tell them they will automatically have 20 friends on the team.

Three players from Newport’s state championship girls water polo team were named to the AllState squad, as juniors Sara Simpson, Olivia Mulholland and Ellen Peterson garnered first-team honors. Simpson was also named State MVP after helping the Knights to a second consecutive state championship.

dren’s Theatre produced live plays for young actors and audiences from 1967 through 1977. Like the local adult theatre group the Bellevue Playbarn, the Children’s Theatre performed at the Center Stage Theatre at Crossroads Shopping Center.

Bellevue Playbarn Children’s Theatre raised the curtain for the first time on July 26, 1967, with “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.” The production starred Richard Dorrish in the title role and John Harsh as Huckleberry Finn.
