fund manager Chris Hansen announced Wednesday morning. Peter and Erik Nordstrom, members of the prominent Seattle family that formerly owned the Seattle Seahawks, have also agreed to join the arena investment group, according to a letter sent Wednesday by Hanson to Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and King

County Executive Dow Constantine. Hanson also made the announcement on a KJR 950 AM morning radio program Wednesday morning. Ballmer’s involvement in Hansen’s investment group is not a surprise as he was part of a group that made a last-minute effort to try to keep the Sonics in Seattle before they moved to

Oklahoma City in 2008. The Oklahoma City Thunder are currently playing in the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat and the Thunder lead the best-ofseven series, 1-0. Before the Sonics left town, Ballmer teamed with a few other prominent [ more BALLMER page 3 ]

Stats show crime on the decline in city Vehicle prowls continue to be top problem Samantha Pak spak@redmond-reporter.com

The Redmond Police Department’s (RPD) 2011 statistics show that crime is down in the City of Redmond. Property crimes such as vehicle prowls and residential burglaries, which RPD community outreach facilitator Jim Bove said are Redmond’s top crimes, have decreased 13 percent. “We’ve been on the decline for a while,” he said. Redmond Police Chief Ron Gibson said this decline, which is in line with the nationwide drop in crime, reflects the city’s citizen satisfaction survey for 2011. The survey showed that 81 percent of citizens are satisfied or very satisfied with police services and 89 percent feel safe or very safe walking alone in their neighborhood at night. The first thing Gibson attributed to the decline in crime was the people working in the RPD. “I can’t discount the

hard work of the men and women in the department,” he said.

PREVENTABLE CRIMES

The most frequent property crime was once again vehicle prowls, but those showed a marked decrease from 684 in 2010 to 554 in 2011. “A lot of those can be prevented by removing everything from your vehicle, especially valuables,” Bove said. “We live in a very safe community and people take it for granted.” He said people generally feel safe in Redmond and are comfortable leaving their things in the car. People need to think like a criminal and hide anything that is valuable or may seem valuable, Bove said. For example, he said he has spoken with vehicle prowl victims who have had their gym bags stolen and many would ask why anyone would want their sweaty workout clothes. [ more CRIME page 5 ]

A Redmond woman remains in stable condition at a Bellevue hospital after she drove through a red light at the intersection of Bel-Red Road and Northeast 40th Street and collided with another vehicle early Thursday morning. Traffic officers from the Redmond Police Department were dispatched to the nasty-looking, two-vehicle col-

The 54-year-old woman was driving a Ford Explorer westbound on Northeast 40th Street when the sports utility vehicle flipped onto its side after a T-bone collision with a Ford Ranger truck, which was heading northbound on Bel-Red Road, according to police

Redmond firefighters also rushed to the scene and cut the top off the Explorer to get access to the woman, who was transported to Overlake Hospital Medical Center with injuries to her arm, Dowd said.

1st District Democrats to debate issues at Redmond community center June 27 On June 27, democratic candidates for the 1st Congressional District will participate in a debate at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center, located at 16600 N.E. 80th St. The debate is designed to resemble presidential debates and will take place from 7:30-9 p.m. All five Democratic candidates who have registered to run for the empty seat in the 1st Congressional District — Darcy Burner, Suzan DelBene, Steve Hobbs, Darshan Rauniyar and Laura Ruderman — will participate. Political journalists from KCTS 9, the Seattle Times and the Everett Herald will be asking

the candidates questions. The five Democratic candidates, along with Republican John Koster and Independent Larry Ishmael, are on the ballot for the Aug. 7 primary election. The top two candidates with the most primary votes, regardless of party affiliation, will move on to the November general election. The new 1st Congressional District was established Jan. 1 under the statewide redistricting. The district, which includes parts of Redmond and now stretches from northern King County to the Canadian border, was formerly represented by Jay Inslee, who resigned the seat

to run for governor. The debate is being sponsored by the Democratic Party in Washington’s 5th, 45th and 48th legislative districts. “We expect this debate to give voters a chance to understand how these candidates stand on issues that are important to the new 1st Congressional District,” said Jim Baum, chair of Washington’s 5th Legislative District Democrats. “This is democracy in action.” For more information, contact Baum at (425) 8640956 or chair@5thdems. org or Scott Williams at (425) 985-1456 or communications@5thdems. org.

First budget public hearing slated for Tuesday The City of Redmond will host the first public hearing on the 2013-14 biennial budget Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Redmond City Hall, 15670 NE 85th St., during the regular City Council meeting. Two additional hearings are planned for October and November. The city uses a citizen-centric budget process called Budgeting by Priorities (BP) that matches budget proposals to six community identified priorities: Vibrant Business Community, Clean and Green Environment, Community Building, Responsible Government, Infrastruc-

ture and Growth and Community Safety. The goal of the first public hearing is to collect further community input about city issues, priorities and fiscal matters before the budget drafts are developed and to provide further information about the BP process. The mayor’s preliminary budget will go to City Council in October. Following a series of public budget hearings, the council will adopt a budget sometime in late November or December.

Cheers to the liquor change

e’re just two weeks into the private sale of liquor in this state and already there are people complaining. The prices, they say, are not lower, and in some cases higher, than what the state charged in its liquor stores. They’re right, of course, but what did they expect — liquor at Dollar Store prices? What they forget, but was clearly obvious before the vote to turn state stores into private enterprise, is that any change had to maintain the level or revenue to the state from liquor sales. That’s translated into a hefty 20.5 tax on liquor at checkout. Other non-food items are taxed at about half that rate. There’s also a $3.77 liter tax. What’s more important is that the shift from state stores to the private sector means liquor is more widely available both in terms of location and hours of operation. That is a huge plus. In fact, there’s now more than four times the number of private retailers selling liquor than the number of stateowned and state-contracted liquor stores. It’s not that we think that people faced a calamity when they wanted a bottle of hooch at 11 p.m. when no state liquor store was open. But there is nothing wrong with being able to get a bottle of liquor at that time. It’s also a plus that you can put that bottle of vodka in your shopping cart along with fresh eggs, vegetables and pet food. And, while prices are pretty much the same as before, competition is beginning to take hold. People who have reward cards with grocery stores are finding that special prices are popping up on liquor, just as they are on other goods. For those still upset at the change, there’s one other benefit: they can drown their sorrows in a stiff drink pretty much any time they want.

We’ve always known that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. It also seems that “risk-free” isn’t actually that either. A report from the good-government group The Municipal League, says the proposed NBA/NHL stadium being talked up in Seattle does indeed come with risks and may not be self-financing as backers say. Hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen, along with the mayor of Seattle and the county executive are proposing a $490 million arena that would include $290 million in private money with the public putting up $200 million in public bonds. That public portion would be repaid through arena taxes and revenues.

As the League rightly points out, if people just shift their entertainment dollars to the new arena from other out-andabout activities, both the county and Seattle have a problem. Revenues from the arena go to arena expenses. The money no longer being spent elsewhere means there’s less taxes for the county’s and Seattle’s general fund. Maintaining current services likely would require higher taxes all around. The League notes one other concern. If Hansen and his partners were to default on the deal, taxpayers would be stuck paying off the bonds. The League study concludes by noting that “This is a complicated proposal with many moving parts. Making it work well will require careful consideration of many choices and details.” We agree.

Proposed stadium deal could have ripple effect on taxes

This note concerns the recent article on the upcoming debate for the Democratic candidates of the 1st Congressional District. It is critical for all voters, no matter of which party, to attend in order to know what we are getting into when we cast our ballots in November. Namely, this debate will hopefully air out some past issues, as all five have skeletons in their closets which the public deserves to see. Four out of the five (Steve Hobbs being the exception) have broken previous agreements in order to run for two elections at once: the special election to fill Jay Inslee’s seat and the larger one for the next session of Congress. Why do this? The answer is that they are circumventing federal campaign contribution rules so that they can receive double the campaign funds by running twice. As for Hobbs, his campaign website fails to mention even one

policy he advocates, beyond the usual “creating jobs” and “building a better Washington”. Are these the people that we really want to send to the nation’s capital? I certainly will be following this debate and I hope that you will too. More public interest may compel each candidate to be clearer about his or her past and goals for the district.

Police stats show crime decreased in city last year He explained that a criminal could see the bag, not knowing what’s inside, and think it could contain a wallet, computer, jewelry or other valuable items. “It’s a grab bag,” Bove said. In addition, he said people should make sure their windows are closed and doors are locked when they leave and keep a list of their valuables and record serial numbers when possible, such as with electronics. Bove said the latter helps police track down items — and the suspect — if they are stolen. Burglaries — most of which were residential — have also declined, going from 198 in 2010 to 157 last year. While these are not as frequent as vehicle prowls, Bove said burglaries put people on “pins and needles” because someone has broken into their homes. He said it is important to have good locks on doors and windows and use them. Residents should also consider the landscaping on their property as a burglar could hide behind any large trees, bushes or shrubs. Bove said good lighting,

RPD selling bicycle helmets The Redmond Police Department (RPD) is selling bicycle helmets for $10.

For more information, visit www.redmond.gov/ PublicSafety/Police/safety_resources. alarm systems and loud dogs can also help deter criminal activity. “You want to make it as difficult as possible (for someone to break into your home),” he said. Gibson added that criminals will go for the easy targets such as open and unlocked garage doors, which can be easily remedied. “Don’t make yourself an easy victim to a crime,” Gibson said.

COMMUNICATION IS KEY

Bove also encouraged residents to get to know their neighbors so they know who belongs in the neighborhood. He said communicating with neigh-

bors and letting them know if no one will be home for an extended period of time also puts multiple sets of eyes on your home while you are gone. Gibson said the number of active Neighborhood Watch groups and their involvement in reporting suspicious activity have been a factor in the decline in crime. He added that the level of participation in last year’s National Night Out — which saw a record 46 block parties in Redmond — also speaks well about citizen’s involvement in crime prevention. Bove said reporting suspicious behavior and crimes — even if nothing valuable

is taken — is important so police officials know where crimes are occurring. He said there are no real “bad areas” of town, so it is difficult to pinpoint where crimes will happen. “It kind of hops around,” he said. Redmond Mayor John Marchione said sharing information is “one of the keys for a low crime rate.” “The improved crime statistics reflect the collaboration between residents, business employees and Redmond police officers,” he said. “Jim Bove meets with crime watch captains and apartment managers on a regular basis to share information. Our crime analysis unit’s ability to detect patterns quickly also helps Redmond keep a low crime rate.” Marchione added that the RPD’s Neighborhood Resource Officers have also contributed to the decline as they have opened up

additional channels of communication and have the time to follow up on cases after the initial report.

STRONG SENSE OF COMMUNITY

Gibson said a number of other factors have contributed to the decline in crime, including the youth programming through the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. He applauded the city’s investment in young people, citing the Old Fire House Teen Center (OFH) and its many activities and events. Gibson said while not all crimes are committed by youth, the OFH has done its part in helping keep the community safe. The police chief also said the quality of city infrastructure has added to the sense of pride in the community, which helps deter crime. Gibson said if a building, car or area is boarded up or

deserted, people will start to do whatever they want with it because no one else is taking responsibility for it. This is called the “broken windows” theory. But because the city works to maintain its roads, buildings and parks, people are less likely to do anything, Gibson said. “You want to keep it nice,” he said. Although numbers have been on a steady decline, Gibson said he aims to continue that momentum. “I am proud of the professional and dedicated work by all Redmond Police Department personnel this past year,” he said. “If we are to maintain our quality of life in Redmond, we need to continue to work in partnership with our community and other law enforcement agencies.” For additional crime statistics, visit www.redmond. gov/PublicSafety/Police/ CrimeStats.

Everett man arrested for Rose Hill burglary, could be tied to more Samantha Pak spak@redmond-reporter.com

A 32-year-old Everett man is in a King County jail for at least one of about nine burglaries that took place several weeks ago in the Rose Hill neighborhood near the Redmond-Kirkland border. The neighborhood was hit with a string of burglaries in a 10-day span about a month and a half ago and in one situation, the

burglar came face to face with a young girl who had been home alone at the time. The Redmond Police Department (RPD) cannot confirm whether the suspect is connected to these other burglaries, though signs lead police officials to believe he is, said RPD spokesperson Jim Bove. “Right now we only have him for one burglary,” he said. Bove said the suspect was arrested by the Seattle Police Department last week

for a similar crime — he had knocked on the door and entered a home when no one answered the door. A woman was inside, but was on the phone and had ignored the knocking. Any type of contact or communication may sometimes be enough to deter a burglar, Bove said. “Normally, they’re not looking for a confrontation,” he said. “They’re looking for a quick and easy target.” Redmond detectives

Electronics, jewelry and money were among the most common items taken, which is why Bove said people should log their valuables. He suggested people take photos of their jewelry and write down the serial numbers when it comes to electronics. He said this makes it easier to

track down items. Bove also encouraged people to look out for their neighbors and to report any suspicious behavior they may witness in their neighborhoods. In addition, he said residents should remember to lock all their doors and windows and make sure they have good locks. “A lot of them can be pretty flimsy,” he said.

A handful of colorful clucking hens and two Giant Flemish rabbits greet visitors as they explore the new happenings at Keep It Simple (KIS) Inc. on Avondale Road, just outside Redmond city limits. Baby chicks’ chirps echo throughout the new store, which is filled with organic fertilizers, bird seed and feeders, supplies for raising chickens and bees, along with equipment and ingredients for growing plants hydroponically and making compost tea. But this new business venture is much more than just a feed and seed store with a few farm-animal attractions. The nearly eight-acre site of the former Classic Nursery is getting a farmer’smarket makeover by the well-known Hussey family with design help from local writer and permaculture landscaper Jessi Bloom. In addition, another permaculture expert, Dave Boehnlein of Terra Phoenix Design, will be part of the property’s master plan design team. Once complete, the onestop farm site will provide a wide range of permaculture products, do-it-yourself practices and environmental education for sustainable urban farming. As the store grows, it will carry fresh eggs, organic produce and vegetables and other organic products. “We are trying to create an educational facility that is going to implore organic and sustainable gardening,” said Tad Hussey, the farm’s manager and son of Leon and Linda Hussey, who have owned the land since 2002 and formerly owned Classic Nursery and Landscape Co. “We want to help people grow their own

Tad said the top priority of KIS is to educate people on the latest urban farming techniques. “It’s not so much about shopping, it’s about getting a chance to see all the different plants and animals,” Tad said. “If people want to do any of the things that we are doing, then I want to have products that support that.” The property is still being designed and developed, but a soft grand opening will be Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17 at 12526 Avondale Rd.

Bloom said the property design will include 25 different demonstration gardens and a “food forest,” a series of gardens in which every plant produces edible food. The site will also have a fenced-off area with free-range animals such as chickens, ducks and rabbits, along with raised garden beds. The fenced-off area will “show you can have chickens in a garden setting,” Bloom said. “Let the animals do the work.” There will also be all kinds of plants for sale to “help build your soil,” Bloom said, adding that she wants to showcase plants that are beneficial

Outdoor children’s yoga classes are currently being offered at the property and Tad said he hopes the site will be destination location for weddings and concerts. He also has plans of opening a coffeehouse sometime in the future. While big changes are in the mix at the property, Leon Hussey will continue to operate his nonprofit Redmond Organization of Shared Environments (ROSE), which offers interpretive nature walks for local students along a 3/4-mile trail that runs along Bear Creek in the back of the property. Each year, ROSE volunteers guide hundreds of students who come to learn about stream ecology and salmon spawning. In addition, Leon will continue to offer brewers for compost tea, which is used to replace the biology in the soil like vitamins for plants, often strengthening a plant to ward off diseases, Leon said. The new KIS design will complement the nature trail in the back of the property and provide a farmer’s-market feel to the property. “A lot of what you see during the Redmond Saturday Market, we will have here during the week,” said Leon. “It’s going to be an extension of getting the safe food that is locally grown, which is a big deal.” KIS is now open Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, call (425) 558-0990 or visit www.kisfarm.com.

Focus on sustainability fuels new sushi restaurant Samantha Pak spak@redmond-reporter.com

As a native of Hawaii, where resources are limited, Malia Foley learned the importance of buying local and supporting her community. And although she is no longer living the island life, the Sammamish resident is bringing this concept to the Eastside’s restaurant scene with Issho Restaurant in downtown Redmond. The restaurant is located at 16505 Redmond Way, Suite A, which was formerly Watercress Asian Bistro and Wine Bar. Foley and her partner Harry Amirullah are co-owners of the modern Japanese restaurant, which focuses on using sustainable and in-season ingredients. Foley, who is a fifth-generation Japanese American on her mother’s side, said all of their ingredients are also sourced. This means they know where everything comes from and has been before it ends up on their plates. She said sourcing is important to them because they want to know what goes into their customers’ mouths. In addition, Issho’s seafood

Issho Restaurant co-owner and head chef Harry Amirullah puts the finishing touches on a plate of sashimi, which includes tuna, salmon and kampachi fish. The restaurant opened in downtown Redmond in March and offers a full sushi bar and modern Japanese fare. Samantha Pak, Redmond Reporter is in the process of becoming certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), an international nonprofit organization that works to promote sustainable fishing practices. According to the organization’s website, MSCcertified seafood “comes from, and can be traced back to, a sustainable fishery.” “It’s a huge undertaking for us,” Foley said about the restaurant becoming certified. She added that Issho will be the first restaurant in Washington to receive the MSC certification. Issho, which is a Japanese slang word for “together,”

also emphasizes buying local in other aspects of its business. From lighting fixtures to signage, Foley said they work to buy their products from local businesses in Redmond or the surrounding area. “Sustainability doesn’t just mean food,” she said. “Sustainability means everything.” Issho features Japanese cuisine with influences from Hawaii and other parts of Asia. The restaurant also offers a full sushi bar with classic sushi, sashimi and fusion-style rolls. “We just try to play with the flavor,” said Amirullah,

who is also Issho’s head chef. Some of that playing has come to include flavors from his home country of Indonesia, which Amirullah said typically involves a bit more spice than other Asian cuisines. Foley said Japanese cuisine is their baseline but there are definite tropical influences. This is not surprising since both she and Amirullah grew up in

tropical climates. “We kind of just want to do what tastes good,” Foley said. She added that they wanted to do a funky, young and playful take on sushi, which can be intimidating because of its raw fish component. “I wanted to bring to the ‘burbs something that is approachable and fun,” Foley said. The two owners, who had worked together for seven years in a restaurant in Seattle and one in Mill Creek before opening Issho, collaborated on the menu — Foley provided ideas and Amirullah worked to put those ideas on a plate. “I am strictly front of the house,” Foley said with a laugh. Although she loves food

and has spent 17 years in the industry — including a few years with Roy Yamaguchi, Hawaii’s first-ever James Beard Award winner — Foley admits her kitchen skills aren’t quite up to par. This may present a problem for some chefs, but Amirullah is fine with it. “We trust her taste buds,” he said. Issho opened in March and is the first restaurant Amirullah and Foley have owned. Foley said they still occasionally get customers who think the restaurant is still Watercress, but once they realize the change the customers are welcoming and some have even become regulars. “I’m glad they’ve been open to receive us,” she said.

End of School Bash set for June 22 at Redmond teen center Samantha Pak spak@redmond-reporter.com

Whether they’re having fun in the sun, working to pick up some extra cash or going on vacation, most teens’ face time with their friends drops significantly in the summer from the daily interaction they usually have during the school year. So to give teens an opportunity to see their friends one last time before school lets out for the summer, the Old Fire House Teen Center (OFH),

located at 16510 N.E. 79th St. in Redmond, is holding an “End of School Bash!” (EOSB) on Friday, June 22 from 3-9 p.m. For $5, teens can celebrate the end of school together, play basketball for a good cause and enjoy food, beverages, live music and other various activities. “There’s a lot going on,” said OFH program coordinator Chris Cullen. “It should be good. It’s always a great party and a lot of fun.” The annual event is hosted by the Youth Advisory Board Advocacy (YABA)

Students from these clubs will set up tables or booths at the event and teens in attendance can learn more, meet members and potentially join for next year. Kyle Navarro, a senior at RHS, will be onsite during EOSB to promote the school’s S.P.A.M. Club. As head of the club, he said the acronym stands for Students Protesting Against Monotony. “S.P.A.M.

and Redmond Youth Partnership Advisory Committee (RYPAC) and students from the groups have been working to organize the event. Jasmine Kozak-Gilroy, a sophomore from Redmond High School (RHS), is a member of YABA and has been working on the event’s activities. She said her favorite part of the process has been the brainstorming sessions. “At our dream (EOSB), there would be ponies, a Ferris wheel, a dunk tank, unicorns, jesters, a murder mystery, a t-shirt cannon, a clown, a mascot of some sort, and corn,” she said. “In reality, we’ll have one of those things.” There may not be a Ferris wheel or any equestrian animals — with or without horns — but this year’s EOSB will definitely have corn. Kozak-Gilroy has had previous event-planning experience helping plan other YABA events and school dances and said one of the biggest challenges is conquering herself. The 15-year-old explained that nothing is as bad, difficult or stressful as it may seem. “As long as you enter the process with that mindset, everything will run smoothly,” she said. “Remember to be positive,

about kids getting together and pulling little pranks,” he said, “but nothing too troublesome.” Navarro said this is the first time the club has been part of EOSB and he hopes to recruit some new members as S.P.A.M.’s numbers have been on the decline. Although he is a senior and won’t be around next year, Navarro said he’s participating in the EOSB because he wants to make sure his club is in good hands. “I just want to make sure the club will live on after I’m gone,” he said. Navarro said he is also excited for EOSB and

making the best of the party because it is one of his last chances to see his friends — some of whom, he acknowledged, he may never see again. The event will also feature summer programs, camps and events at the OFH. This year’s EOSB is doubling up as a release party for a compilation album of 11 musicians who have recorded in the OFH media lab, including Family Band, Box, Zephyrs, Silicon Girls and more. Josh Baez, a junior at Newport High School in Bellevue, has interned at the OFH since September and was the producer for the project. The 17-year-old said most of the artists, who represent Redmond and the greater Eastside, will perform at the EOSB. Teens can expect a little bit of jazz, surfer rock, pop, instrumental and alternative rock. “It’s gonna be a long show,” said Baez, a singer and songwriter who is also a featured on the album and scheduled to perform at the EOSB. He said the album will be available to download for free starting the day of EOSB and postcards with the website information will be handed out at the EOSB.

Portion of Union Hill Road closed for construction this weekend Northeast Union Hill Road in unincorporated King County outside of Redmond will be closed from 9 p.m. tonight to 4 a.m. Monday, June 18.

According to the county website, this road closure will “allow the contractor to fill and pave the roadway, and to shift traffic to the north half of Evan’s Creek Bridge.” Eastbound traffic will be detoured onto 185th Avenue Northeast. The website states that traffic will travel south to Northeast Redmond Fall City Road and be directed to the left to 204th Place Northeast/208th Avenue Northeast. Westbound traffic will

NO MORE REASON TO BE AFRAID

While there are some individuals who experience “dental phobia” to the point where they sacrifice their oral health by choosing not to visit the dentist, there may be little for them to fear. The fact is that modern dental techniques have reduced pain to a barely perceptible level. When nearly 52,000 people were recently surveyed on the matter of dental procedures they had undergone during the past five years, a very small percent reported severe pain during tooth extraction (only six percent to be exact). Only five percent reported severe pain associated with root-canal therapy (it is the infection and inflammation that hurts, not the procedure to alleviate the pain of an abscessed nerve root), and only one percent experienced severe pain associated with a dental filling. If you are anxious about visiting the dentist, make your feelings known when scheduling an appointment to ensure that you will be given detailed information about anything the dentist intends to do. People with “dental phobia” often put off routine care for years or even decades. We can help calm those fears with our gentle, quality care. Extractions, sealants, fillings, root canals, cosmetic dentistry, implants, partial or full dentures, crowns and bridges are just some of the services we offer at NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY. For exceptional dental care, simply call 425.641.4111. We’re located in the Forest Office Park, Building F, at 14655 Bel-Red Road, Suite 101, near the Microsoft Main Campus in Bellevue, where we can provide your entire family with the best care possible.

Stop frequent heartburn for a pain-free, healthy summer S according to a recent survey by Wakefield Research for P&G, which brings you Prilosec OTC(R). The survey revealed that many frequent heartburn sufferers — those who experience heartburn two or more days per week — are not treating symptoms as effectively as possible, and there is a general lack of understanding about heartburn and available treatments. One of the top misconceptions is that all over-the-

counter (OTC) heartburn treatments are the same. Although frequent heartburn symptoms can be reduced with antacids or H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors are indicated specifically for frequent heartburn. There are important differences among the available therapies: • Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) treat frequent heartburn by shutting down many of the acid pumps in the stomach and stopping

symptoms before they start. Effects can last 24 hours. • Histamine2 (H2) blockers partially block production of acid in the stomach. The effect of H2 blockers generally lasts six to 12 hours. • Antacids neutralize existing stomach acid and provide relatively rapid but short-term relief of heartburn symptoms lasting one to three hours. Two myths many believe are that drinking milk can help relieve symptoms and that weight gain has no impact on frequent heartburn. In actuality, a glass of milk increases one’s acid production (like any food) and maintaining a healthy weight is one key to treating heartburn. Dr. Su Sachar, gastroenterologist at Cedars-Sinai

Medical Center in Los Angeles, says that sufferers do not have to accept frequent heartburn as “normal.” “One way to treat frequent heartburn is to take a medication that can help block the acid that causes heartburn, so you don’t get it in the first place,” Sachar said. “It’s possible that, while taking just one pill a day as directed, a 14-day course of Prilosec OTC can control, and in many cases, eliminate frequent heartburn symptoms.” People can take measures to avoid heartburn symptoms this summer. Sachar offered the following tips for those suffering from frequent heartburn: • Get educated. One of the best defenses is to arm

ummer is around the corner, which means it’s time to pack your bags for vacation, dust off your beach umbrella and fire up the grill. Unfortunately many people will not only feel the summer heat outside with friends, but also inside their chest. Summer is prime time for heartburn. Barbecue season is the time of the year when people experience frequent heartburn symptoms the most,

yourself with information. With all the over-the-counter medications available, many patients are often overwhelmed and don’t know what is right for them. Additionally, people often fall prey to the common myth that experiencing symptoms daily is normal without realizing there are treatments available. The more you know about frequent heartburn, the better you will be able to treat it. • Talk to your doctor about the right treatment for you. Sachar recommends over-the-counter PPIs, like Prilosec OTC because it’s possible with just one pill a day to block the acid and stop heartburn before it starts for a full 24 hours of zero heartburn. It’s possible while taking Prilosec OTC. Use as directed for 14 days to treat frequent heartburn. Do not take for more than 14 days or more often than every four months unless directed by a doctor. Not for immediate relief. • Quit smoking. Smoking relaxes the valve at the top of your stomach, allowing excess stomach acid to reflux into your esophagus.

A

recent report by The Partnership at Drugfree.org brings to light a concerning trend among our kids — the increased use and acceptance of marijuana. The report notes that teens’ regular use of marijuana has increased 42 percent since 2008. To those of us working in youth substance abuse treatment, this is no surprise as for some time, marijuana has been the primary drug of kids in drug treatment. I bring this to your attention because marijuana use in teens can be a predictor of other drug use and risky behaviors. With summer just around the corner, it’s an important time to have a talk with kids about the dangers and risks of substance use. The legalization debate has created a lot of confusion and discussion in families about the safety of marijuana. While you may not feel that occasional marijuana or alcohol use is dangerous, smoking heavily during adolescence has serious repercussions in children. It is a fact that teens’ brains are still developing, so they are more easily harmed by drugs and alcohol. We know that adolescents who use substances before the age of 18, are more likely to develop an addiction as an adult—the younger the age, the higher the likelihood. Those who start using before age 14 have a 50 percent chance of becoming addicts as adults. And we know that some teens are more vulnerable to drug and alcohol addiction than others—specifically, teens who have a family history of substance abuse or who have mental health issues. For these teens, prevention is even more important, as recreational or experimental use more easily results in addiction. I recommend that parents get their kids involved in summer activities. Help them find a paying job, do some volunteer work, or enroll children in age-appropriate summer activity camps. For teens, there are some great options in music, sports and careerrelated skills camps.

The Overlake School graduate Dean Poplawski excelled in three sports, including golf, which he played competitively for the first time last fall. He was also a first-team, all-league selection in both basketball and soccer. Bill Christianson, Redmond Reporter being named the Redmond Reporter’s 2011-12 Male Athlete of the Year.

Poplawski also proved his all-star status in the classroom after earning a spot at Stanford, the alma mater of both his mother, Kim and father, Eddie. “It’s very amazing to me what he has accomplished during his time at Over-

lake,” said Overlake basketball coach Justin Prohn. “You name it he has done it. Also, just going to Stanford, what an achievement.” Poplawski decided to turn out for golf in the fall after soccer was moved to the spring season. “I played golf in the past for fun, but never on a team,” he said. “It was a fun thing more than anything.

It’s no surprise Poplawski has excelled in sports as he grew up in a sports-minded family. Both of his parents played sports in high school and his older brother, Danny, plays baseball at Georgetown University. His younger brother, Matthew, plays basketball at Lakeside School in Seattle and also plays on a team for the Redmond-based Crossfire Premiere Soccer Club. Dean said growing up, “everything was a competition, no matter what.” Dean credits his older brother with his improvement and development in sports. “Danny definitely helped me improve in whatever it was — both in my mindset in how I played to technical skills,” Dean said. Dean said his secondbest experience at Overlake was when he played with his brother Danny on the Overlake basketball team when he was a freshman and Danny was a senior. “The state championship (in soccer) definitely tops that,” Dean said. Both Matthew and Danny attended Dean’s commencement ceremony last weekend as Dean put a bow on his stellar career at Overlake. “I will miss his smile and positive attitude and his respect for his fellow teammates,” said Overlake golf coach Doug Weaver. “I have no doubt that Dean will be a big success with whatever he chooses to do in the future.”

As a three-sport athlete and a standout student at The Overlake School, Dean Poplawski knows about the importance of making adjustments — and a big one looms large for the recent high school graduate. For the last four years, Poplawski has spent every day after school at some sort of sports practice. His daily sports fix will soon be replaced by the academic rigors of Stanford University. “One of the things I will have to adjust to is not being part of a team in college,” said Poplawski, who plans to play intramural or club sports when he goes off to Stanford in a couple of months. “Literally, every day after (high) school, I’ve gone to a practice.” Poplawski graduated from Overlake with 12 varsity letters after playing five different sports, including golf, a sport he played competitively for the first time last fall. In his first season on the golf course, Poplawski showed great natural skills and quickly became a team leader for the Emerald City League champion Owls. During the winter basketball season, he led the league in scoring for the second straight year and earned a spot on the Class 1A Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association (WIBCA) All-State team. He capped his illustrious sports career last month as a key member of the Owls’ soccer state-title team. “Everything turned out perfectly,” Poplawski said. “I couldn’t ask for anything more.” The 18-year-old scholar athlete can add another accolade to his resume after

the soccer season. Our expectations were set pretty high. I think we all deserved it.”

thing else I’d done.” Poplawski helped the Owls to the league championship and he was one of six Overlake golfers who advanced to the district tournament, which was held last month at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton. During the winter, Poplawski was a first-team, all-league player on the basketball court and scored a career-high 33 points in league playoff win against University Prep. The victory gave the Owls their first league playoff berth since 2006. In addition, Poplawski became third member of Overlake’s 1,000-point club, finishing his career with 1,050 points. His achievements during the basketball season earned him a spot in the all-state game, where he scored 12 points in helping the 1A team defeat the 2A team. Poplawski’s crowning moment came in the spring when the soccer team won the Class 1A state title. Poplawski scored eight goals and collected 11 assists to earn first-team, all-league honors as a midfielder during the championship season. He showed his all-around athleticism and team-first mentality when he was inserted as goalkeeper — a position he played in his younger days — for the penalty-kick shootouts in the state semifinals and finals. He delivered big time, blocking four penalty kicks in the two games, including three in the semifinals, to help the Owls claim their first state title since 1996. “It was definitely the way to go out,” Poplawski said. “There was a lot of hype going into

Crossfire soccer team earns Gothia Cup berth The Crossfire Premier Girls Under-15 Elite Club National League team earned a trip to the Gothia Cup in Sweden after recently winning the Manchester United Premier Cup at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. The U15 team, coached by Tim Reynolds and Arby Busey, went 3-1 in pool play and then advanced to the semifinals with a 1-0 win against Real Colorado in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals, the girls battled Arsenal (Calif.) to a 0-0 tie after regulation before outscoring Arsenal, 3-1 in the penaltykick shootout to advance to the finals. Crossfire Premier, a Redmond-based soccer club, then blanked San Diego Surf, 1-0 — the team’s fourth shutout of the

tournament — to win the championship. The girls had beat San Diego in pool play, 3-2, before beating them again in the title match. “Everything just fell into place. They knew they were going to win it,” Reynolds said of his players. “They were extremely confident.” Crossfire Premier is the only club in the United States to have won the Manchester United Premier Cup on both the girls’ and the boys’ side. The Crossfire Premier boys won the tournament in 2005 and went on to the World Finals in Hong Kong, where they finished 7th in the world. Reynolds said his team will fly to Sweden July 14 and a grand opening ceremony for the Gothia Cup is scheduled for July 16.

The City of Redmond’s Design Review Board (DRB) recognized 25 projects built in the city from 2004-2011 during a special ceremony at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. Award winners included city-built projects such as the Grass Lawn Community Park Picnic Shelter, large corporate campuses such as the Microsoft Studios West Campus and small private projects such as the Redmond Presbyterian Church. “They run the full range of size,” said Steven Fischer, a principal planner for the City of Redmond. Awards were given in three categories — Superior Design, Outstanding Design and Honor Design. There were nine Superior Design recipients, 12 Outstanding Design recipients and four Honor Design recipients. Redmond City Hall, a new narthex (entrance hall) at St. Jude Parish and Redmond High School were among the superior award winners. All winners in all three categories were projects that

came before the DRB. Fischer said the city’s capital projects are usually not included. “The work of this important citizen commission and the design elements reflected in each of these projects is a testament to the forward thinking vision of the owner, architect and landscape architect representatives for each of the projects,” Redmond Mayor John Marchione said in a city news release. Redmond’s DRB is made up of seven citizen members who review plans for proposed business, commercial, industrial and multi-family projects to determine the projects’ compatibility with the community. Members include two city residents and five professionals from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and urban design. Criteria for review include a review of site plans, colors, building materials and landscape design. “I am so amazed at the quality of the work presented here,” DRB Chair David Scott Meade said in a city news release. “I certainly hope that Redmond continues to get such interesting and well-designed projects.”

The City of Redmond Planning Department and DRB established the Excellence in Design Awards Program in 1999 to recognize and honor projects that best represent the design values of the community. Fischer said they wanted to recognize people who have positively contributed to and invested in the community. He said when constructing buildings, it is important to make sure the projects will have a positive impact on the city and are a good addition because the buildings last for decades. “(The award-winning projects) exceeded the minimum standards,” he said. “They’re great-looking projects.” For example, Fischer said the City of Redmond’s Well No. 3, which received a superior award, doesn’t look like a utility building and is more than just a box. “It’s got some class to it,” he said.
