Bellevue council to decide on light-rail options

Bellevue family’s battle with bipolar disease leads to ‘Perfect Chaos’ Bellevue mother, daughter write book to give voice to those with mental illness BY MARY JEAN SPADAFORA Bellevue Reporter

At Sammamish High School, Linea Johnson was an over-achiever. She received straight A’s, played sports and developed her musical talent. But unlike other high school students, she faced burnouts which sent her into bouts of depression – crashes her parents knew weren’t normal. “It’s addicting to be a mess,” Linea said, reflecting on her episodes. Her family had no idea – until she was hospitalized in college – that she was living with bipolar disorder, a condition that would catapult the Johnsons into a battle for Linea’s life, a search for a fix and eventually a journey of healing detailed in their new book published in May. Written by Linea and her mother, Cinda, “Perfect Chaos” is a compilation of essays and journal entries, narrating the family’s struggle against the debilitating disease and their confrontation with the state of mental illness in society today. The goal: share their story and give a voice to individuals with mental illness. Cinda’s story begins by recapping the childhood of her two daughters. As a professor at Seattle University specializing in mental health, she was acutely aware Linea experienced feelings abnormal to other children. Despite her parents’ fears, Linea persevered through her high school burn outs. It wasn’t until Linea’s hospitalization and

diagnosis in 2007 that her parents realized something was seriously wrong. “I wasn’t just teaching this anymore,” Cinda said. “I was living this.” The book moves to Linea’s journal entries – a practice she began as a child – detailing her experience as she battled the ups and downs of the disorder, defined by recurring episodes of mania and depression, leading to unpredictable swings in mood and energy. As the story progresses, Linea finds herself in and out of psychiatric hospitals in Seattle and Chicago, going back and forth with different medications in a battle to break her destructive cycle of self-harm. “It’s addicting when you don’t feel good to resort to things that make you feel good, but aren’t healthy,” Linea said. “Doing what is best for you is constant work.” Her tenacity paid off. She graduated from Seattle University with a degree in creative writing and works at Harborview Medical Center. She actively works with her mother to advocate for individuals who aren’t able to articulate their experiences with mental health – from feelings to interactions with

MENTAL HEALTH According to the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI), one in four Americans experience a mental health disorder in a given year. Mental health resources include: ■ National Alliance on Mental Illnesswww.nami.org ■ The Balanced Mind – support for families with children and young adults with mood disorders. www. thebalancedmind.org ■ The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance. www.dbsalliance.org ■ Bring Change 2 Mind – to erase the stigma of mental illness. www.bringchange2mind.org the health care system. The book is about “sharing stories so people can feel less alone and understand the mind of someone going through a mental health condition,” Linea said. “It helps people express what they’re going through.” In addition to promoting their book, Cinda and Linea also speak at mental health conferences, including the 2012 NAMI National Convention, June 27-79 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. “Perfect Chaos” is published by St. Martin’s Press. It is available at major bookstores or Amazon.com. List price is $24.99. Mary Jean Spadafora: mspadafora@bellevuereporter.com

The Bellevue City Council is expected to decide on a number of measures to cut costs of East Link light-rail and reduce the city’s cost on the project. At its meeting June 25, the council is expected to endorse possible cost-cutting plans to be further studied by Sound Transit to see the impact they would have on the project. The decision does not change the final alignment, it merely allows staff to further study the proposed measures to see if they are viable and beneficial. In a pact last year between Bellevue and Sound Transit, the city agreed to provide $100 million in low- or no-cost contributions toward the cost of a tunnel. Another $60 million in “contingent” contributions by the city is the target of cost savings efforts; the city’s goal is to reduce that contribution to zero. Both sides have identified a number of cost-cutting possibilities and, depending on which options are selected down the road, the project cost could be reduced anywhere from $21 to $44 million. That still leaves the two agencies with some work to do to eliminate a total of $60 million in project costs, for which Bellevue is currently on the hook. Cost-saving ideas under consideration include shifting Bellevue Way to the west to accommodate the light rail line, a street-level alignment on 112th Avenue Southeast near Southeast Fourth Street, and changes to the downtown tunnel station. The new design ideas still have many unanswered questions, but one sure thing is the elimination of an elevated crossing of the train from the east to the west side of the street. New ideas include adding elevation to the road, so the train can cross SEE LIGHT RAIL, 2

dent Celia Perez Morales, 35; and 41-yearold Jorge Castrejon Pichardo of Mountlake Terrace made their initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Seattle on June 2. According to the indictment, three of the defendants worked at Emerald City Escrow and at Nationwide Home Mortgage and conspired to use straw buyers to defraud banks. The fourth defendant worked at a tax preparation business and provided some of the false documentation submitted with the loan applications. The conspirators are accused of submitting false financial, employment, and

tax information to apply for residential mortgage loans. They falsely inflated the sale price of the properties. After the lenders funded the loans, the conspirators kept the excess proceeds and the straw buyers quickly defaulted on the mortgages, according to the charges. The victim banks included Washington Mutual (now JPM Chase), Bank of America, American Sterling Bank, ING Bank, IndyMac Bank, and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc., among others. Documents in the scheme were submitted via mail and wire.

Several councilmembers showed frustration with the process, as a result of the many questions that remain about the proposed options. Councilmember Don Davidson, for the second week in a row was upset by the process, and the route in general, which he voted for when the council created the memorandum of understanding with Sound Transit last year. He reiterated his support for a deep bore tunnel, which was suggested by Build a Better Bellevue, only a day before announcing an appeal of the federal approval of the route. Davidson wanted to see how the lawsuit would shake out before supporting anything. “We can’t seem to get off this alignment,” he said. “It’s a terrible alignment. I watch you guys struggle to make it better, but you can’t.”

underneath, just above a complex water table featuring the confluence of several streams and culverts. What will still have to be decided is whether Southeast Fourth Street into the neighborhood will have to be closed, or whether a gated crossing at Southeast Sixth is needed. While staff and councilmembers saw savings potential in the neighborhoods, others wanted to make sure they were still protecting the residents and focusing the cost savings efforts on other parts of the route. “I think it’s important for us to not try and save nickels and dimes in ways that would lead to much greater impact,” said Councilmember Claudia Balducci.

Caught between salmon and sense

B

oaters, endangered salmon and out-flowing water from Lake Sammamish share “The Slough” to the Sammamish River at Marymoor Park. Over the last decade, this 1960’s Corps of Engineer’s flood control project has been altered. Though King County agreed to “operate” the project, infrequent maintenance, an illegal rock dam and sediment build-up now block flow. The Corps of Engineers designed the outlet channel at Marymoor to handle a “once-in-a-decade” storm. Key to passing this flow downstream was a channel clear of obstructions. When constructed, King County agreed to maintain it to this standard each year. But fast growing willows were planted in the channel and maintenance was reduced to once every four years. Unfortunately, the willows created superb habitat for bass. (Bass love to eat young salmon.) And cuttings from periodic vegetation maintenance were left behind resulting in sediment build-up. The corps recognized impending problems in 2008 and notified the Dr. Martin Nizlek county that the Sammamish flood control project was being decertified, making it ineligible for federal support. Even earlier than 2008, public records show the corps advised the county it should inform lake residents their properties and improvements would be impacted. Unfortunately, their prediction came true, as many who’ve lost docks, bulkheads and landscaping would attest – losses that easily have reached millions of dollars. At resident urging last year, the county returned to annual vegetation trimming. However, some county officials are advocating delaying removal of the sediment and debris, offering instead a long-term, costly solution that would rebuild this section of the river. Common sense calls for clearing today’s debris and blockage problems. Then we should take a comprehensive look at cost-effective solutions that balance water flow, water quality and the needs of salmon and recreational users. Lakeside jurisdictions, lake residents and the Corps of Engineers must be involved. Otherwise this federally funded project is a non-navigable, impeded floodway that has negatively impacted salmon and threatens greater and greater damages each year.

Dr. Martin Nizlek is a retired civil engineer, a board member of the Washington Sensible Shorelines Association, past president of the West Lake Sammamish Association and a Bellevue resident of 20 years.

Obama’s ‘index’ Just as Ronald Reagan hung the “Misery Index” of the total of unemployment and inflation around Jimmy Carter’s neck, so should Mitt Romney pin the “Bankruptcy Welfare Index” on Barack Obama for the total of unemployment, the deficit as a percentage of GDP and government spending as a percent of GDP.

Mistake? Those boys at HBO sure know how to have fun. Putting former President Bush’s head on a pole in their “Game of Thrones” show is the essence of good taste and jocularity. Of course the tepid mea culpas by the network are supposed to deflect any criticism. No one will be fired, count on it. Now here’s an obvious question. What would have happened if President Obama’s head were “inadvertently” placed on a stick? How many “heads would roll” on that little “mistake?” Pun intended.

Denny Andrews, Bellevue

Light-rail use marginal It is incredible to me and others that

a city that promotes itself as one of the most livable, would trade quality of life in established single-family neighborhoods for an ideological concept of densification to promote light-rail use. The resulting use is marginal at best and the added cost of the concept is a budget busting $160 million to the city. And that trade-off is made in the face of a far less residentially impacting alignment that can provide faster transit service and potentially better ridership at an estimated cost of zero to the city. I remember showing up at the Bellevue City Council chambers about three years ago with some pictures I Photoshopped, showing an 80-foot high embankment along Bellevue Way, complete with graffiti, and was pooh-poohed by almost everyone. Now it looks to be a reality, unless the suit recently filed on behalf of the citizens of Bellevue can stop Sound Transit officials, or change their minds. What I can’t wrap my head around is all the turmoil this silly trolley will cause, for a solution that addresses only 4 percent of the traffic problem, by Sound Transit’s own numbers.

Lame editorial I have never read a lamer, unnecessary and valueless editorial (liquor costs, June 15), and its concluding

paragraph was idiotic and immature.

Richard K. Olson, Bellevue

Learn to park I am a frequent visitor to the Bellevue Library and I frequently notice that more cars could be parked in the block if only cars were parked properly starting with the cars at each end of the block. Drivers often park leaving uneven space at each end of the block and in between cars within the block. On some days I find that if cars were parked properly in the block up to three additional cars could be accommodated. I spoke to a resident who happened to be in front of his unit and [he]said he has noticed this also. A few years ago I brought this to the attention of the city of Seattle and was told more cars could be parked if spaces are not marked. This is simply not true. What happens is you sometimes get cars boxed in, which happened to me once when a car parked in front of me at the end of a block backed up against me in spite of having ample space to pull up closer to the curve with out being in the crosswalk. It is rare that you will see a driver get out, notice he/she has taken up too much space and re-park. Unfortunately we live in a society where too many people think only of themselves.

City shows new crime map

recently started a karate class. I felt confident that if my young son could learn the techniques and commands, I could, too. I didn’t consider the fact that he’s used to learning every day and somewhere along the line, I forgot to try new things. When you watch someone who has dedicated years to a skill, they always make it look easy. Like drumming or playing bagpipes. Or karate. It’s never as easy when you try it yourself but always humbling nonetheless. It’s disorienting to hear commands in Japanese and to make my body move in ways it rebels against. I have no balance, my kicks are too low, and wish I didn’t Darcy Brixey have to see myself in the mirror trying to control my noodle legs. My joints are stiff, my arms are weak and I look like an idiot. I’m sure that Sensei goes to his office after class to laugh, maybe even cry. I try hard. Often I fail, which makes me want to try again. Still, I return each week looking forward to learning something new. Kaizen is the idea of constant improvement or a change for the better. The King County Library System subscribes to an online database called Universal Class, which is dedicated to helping you learn something new or make a change for the better. Courses vary from bartending/ mixology (yes, really!) to behavioral sciences and algebra to chakra clearing. If you are shy or easily embarrassed, a classroom setting may not be the right place for you. The online courses of study on Universal Class are authored and taught by

experts in the field who give you feedback after each selfpaced lesson. Most courses are around 10 hours of online class time and they are free. You can find Universal Class by visiting the KCLS database page at www.kcls.org/databases. It is listed under the heading labeled Careers and Education. Log in using your library card number and PIN. Once you have set up an account with a log on and password and you will be ready to learn. By immersing ourselves in a new skill or idea, we can attain constant personal improvement. Try it out today. Even if you aren’t brave enough for karate, there is a class inside the database perfect for you. Learn something new, even if it’s just for kicks.

While tooth decay has been on the decline over the past few decades, dentists are discovering a worrisome new uptick in cavities. It seems that a number of preschoolers all over the country, in all income levels, are developing so many cavities that they must undergo general anesthesia to treat them all. In such cases, it is not uncommon to see preschoolers with six to ten cavities or more at one time. This growing problem is likely due to increased use of bottled water (which does not contain fluoride) and increased snacking on sugary foods and drinks at bedtime. Making matters worse, many parents do not insist that their toddlers brush before going to bed. Children are paying the price. The increased incidence of multiple cavities among preschoolers underlines the importance of taking a child for a visit to the dentist before his or her first birthday to assess cavity risk and establish good oral health habits. At NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, we can help instill healthy oral hygiene techniques and can point out areas that may require extra attention during brushing and flossing to prevent cavities. Whether your dental needs are a complete exam and cleaning, a full-mouth restoration, or anything in between, we promise to provide you with exceptional care as we enhance the natural beauty of your smile. You can find us in the Forest Office Park, Building F, at 14655 BelRed Road, Suite 101, near the Microsoft Main Campus in Bellevue. Call us at 425.641.4111 to schedule an appointment.

excited to find that prices for spirits will not only be cheaper than in the grocery store, but also less than previous costs at state liquor stores, Cooper said. “We strive to be the price leader in every market we are in, and we think Bellevue will be no different,” Cooper said. With the large selection available, Total Wine and More customers are going to need some guidance, Cooper said, adding that every employee is required to undergo more than 150 hours of training to know everything there is to know about wine, beer and spirits. The company sponsors trips to Spain and France to taste international products and adventures to the Napa Valley and other domestic hot spots.

As if getting liquor at the grocery store wasn’t enough, Bellevue now will be the first city in the state for Total Wine and More, one of the foremost wine, beer and spirit retailers in the country. With more than 8,000 wines, 2,500 beers and 3,000 types of spirits, Total Wine and More fancies itself the leader in both price and selection in every market it enters. The store opens June 28 at 699 120th Ave., in the spot formerly occupied by Larry’s Market and next to Uwajimaya. Founder David Trone said the company has stores in 13 states, and with each new frontier comes new relationships with producers both local and worldwide. “We really specialize in finding the unique family producers from all over the world that really can’t be successful elsewhere on their own,” Trone said. Trone said Total Wine and More will carry more local wines than competitors’ entire selection. Washington has been a target of the company for some time, Trone said. With its quality wine producers and burgeoning craft beer industry, it was a natural move for the company. But the final domino fell when voters passed Initiative 1183, allowing stores over 10,000 square feet to sell spirits. While Total Wine and More has stores in two states - North Carolina and Virginia - that don’t allow spirit sales in grocery stores, being able to add spirits to the selection makes the business boom, Trone said. Ed Cooper, spokesman for the company, said Bellevue was a logical target because of its high income and its diverse and well-educated populace. Customers will be surprised and

Microsoft Surface tablet headed to Bel-Square this fall Company unveils a long-anticipated device BY JOSH SUMAN Bellevue Reporter

Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer ended media and consumer speculation June 18 with the unveiling of Surface, the first tablet device from the Redmond-based company and one it hopes can rival the wildly popular iPad in the evolving world of mobile computing. Less than 10 millimeters thick and with an ultra-rigid magnesium case, Surface features built-in USB and HDMI ports and an attachable multi-touch keyboard that also acts as a cover. An integrated kickstand is yet another feature that follows the theme of blending the hardware and software of the device for a more seamless transition for users between work and play. “People do want to create and consume,” Ballmer said at the unveiling event in Los Angeles. “They want to be on their couch, they want to be at their desk and they want to be on the go. Surface fulfills that dream.” The device will come in two versions,

Apple has dominated the market of mobile computing with the iPad since its release in 2010, but will soon face competition from the newest hardware innovation that can operate a broad range of applications. Microsoft also hopes other features like the cover, which snaps in place with a magnetic hinge, dual antennas for wi-fi reception and front and rear facing cameras will provide appeal while also adding some distinguishing features to draw attention from the iPad. But the functionality of Windows 8 on the new device is what Ballmer hailed as the cornerstone of its success in the marketplace. “Because of Windows 8, the Surface is a PC, the Surface is a tablet and the Surface is something new,” Ballmer said.

EXERCISE and the BRAIN ASK THE EXPERT: Dr. John Ratey author of ‘Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain’ By EPHRAIM TUCHO

F

or those that think the healthy benefits of physical activity are limited to physical conditioning, they may be surprised to learn that the true benefits of exercise are for the brain.

What improvements will someone see in their mental capacities once they start exercising? What the exercise does is that it makes learners better at learning. It improves the attention system, it improves the motivation to stick with it. It lowers impulsivity. You’re less jumpy in a cognitive situation. It reduces anxiety, and all those things make for a better learner. For the brain, for 100 billion nerve cells, [exercise] optimizes it to grow, and that’s the only way to learn things. That’s the way we encode information. The brain becomes better conditioned. Synapses get pushier, make more neurotransmitters and make more receptors. We get our brain cells ready to learn. If our brain cells don’t grow, we don’t learn.

The body craves activity when the brain resists. Is there a way to wire our brain into craving and enjoying this exercise as well? The resistance is there. Other than once you get to a point of being so keyed into it, you get on a regular schedule. The ultimate best way is to do it with someone and to have fun with it. That is the best way to get you going and keep you going. After a while, the best way to get wired is to have something that’s fulfilling and drawing enough and motivating enough on its own. There comes a time for those who make it to about 3 months, it’s very hard for them to stop a regular routine.

Is wiring the brain an additional challenge for people who recently started losing weight or does the same challenges present to those who have exercised regularly in the past? It’s very hard to start. One of the things we know now is that for very obese people the way to get them to start is probably by lifting weights; small curls or lifting things above their heads. They will be able to see a change in their strength and they will be able to see it immediately. They can see

themselves getting stronger and they can get closer to walking and aerobics. Walking is nice, but exercise really means pushing beyond your limits. Walk more than you usually do. You have to see a change. That’s why going to a gym is good because you can see a change easier. Then you really want to push yourself. until you’re out of breath and you are willing to push yourself. But people tend not to push themselves.

In your book you recommend aerobics and tennis for conditioning both the body and the brain. Are there any other activities you would suggest? How intense should the activity be? Overall, I’d say best exercise is dance. Vigorous kinds of dance involve so much, so many muscles, as well as the brain, and that’s the trick. What we know is the best results come from exercises that involve coordination and learning challenges. In dance you have to concentrate on the steps and you have a partner and it adds an overall degree of complexity. The more vigorous dance the better. I think the ideal [for an activity] is probably something that gets your heart rate up to 90 percent of maximum for a short period of time

We know what can happen when we don’t exercise our physical muscles but what effects would a lack of exercise have on our brain? I think if you exercise, your level of fitness is going to change your level of cognition. You’re not going to have that acute burst like you’ve had in the past. Getting to a point where you don’t need exercise is not real. People need to continue to exercise throughout their lives. Your cognition goes down as you get older and it goes down pretty quickly.

Concentrate on foods you should add to your diet.

eing overweight can have a devastating impact on a person’s self-image, especially someone who has a yearning ache to feel and look desirable. And it follows that looking sexier can be a stronger motivator than health when someone goes on a diet. Dietitians often get that from their patients. “They say, ‘if only I get to a certain number I can do online dating,’ ” says Dawn Jackson Blatner, registered dietitian, Chicago. But starving yourself to a hot-on-a-Saturday night size 2 shouldn’t be your aspiration, say nutrition experts.

Sex appeal isn’t conditional on a dress size. It’s about having confidence, gusto, passion, says Elizabeth Somer, M.A., registered dietitian, Salem, Ore. “If you walk with your shoulders back, you’re healthy, your skin radiates a glow and you have a big smile on your face, you can be 20 or 90 and you can be sexy,” says Somer.

By switching off some negative eating habits, clearing junk foods from your environment and creating realistic goals, you’re more likely to stick to a weight loss plan, have more energy and feel better about yourself, say nutrition experts. When you give in to food that doesn’t enhance your wellbeing, you feel guilty and beat yourself up. You’re probably going to wallow in potato chips, not carrot sticks.

Break the cycle. Take a walk or go to the gym instead of self-medicating with high-fat, high-calorie foods when you’re stressed.

Change behaviors that trigger overeating. For example, if you eat while watching television, you may lose track of how much you’re consuming. Turn off the television during mealtime. “Do different things to get different results,” Blatner says. “It could be something as simple as drinking a healthy breakfast smoothie. It sets you up; you feel like you’re going to have a healthy day.

30-45 min. group classes starting as low as $5 a class

“It’s easier to add things than take away. I know that by adding protein at breakfast, people will be less hungry midday,” says Blake, clinical associate professor, Boston University. “Plan something in the afternoon – another piece of fruit, a few nuts, a chunk of reduced-fat cheese. By eating more and being in more control of what you eat, you’ll eat fewer calories,” Blake says. You’re more likely to succumb to temptation when you’re surrounded by high-fat, high-calorie foods.

The simple solution? “Don’t bring the junk into the house. Don’t buy chips and soda and ice cream. They shouldn’t be in your cupboards anymore,” Somer says. As you continue your healthful habits you’ll notice the positive changes, say the dietitians. When your step is confident, you’ve got a playful look in your eye and a secret smile lingers on your lips, well, you’re ready to answer that old question: “Do You Think I’m Sexy?” And it’s yes, yes, yes.

said, ‘whatever’,” Burnett said. “But now I think they are starting to realize there could be some opportunities.” No longer the inexperienced seventh-grader joining the team to meet friends and score a quick trip to nationals, Burnett finished fourth in the IAAF Race Walking Cup Trials in April and earned a spot in the World Race Walking Cup in Saransk, Russia. She trains by walking around 70 miles per week. While her goal has long been qualifying for the 2016 Olympics, Burnett will be in the field in Eugene on July 1 to try and qualify four years ahead of schedule. A spot on the team headed to London would be another unexpected accomplishment and put Burnett at the top of race walking’s tightly knit community. But whether or not she makes the standard, there will be another opportunity in 2016. More importantly, there is the companionship and community she sought all along. “We’re kind of like a dysfunctional family,” Burnett said. “We always support each other and we are all good friends. They are the people I can always go back to.” It is the first championship for a Thunderbird team at the tournament in seven years. Little Leaguers from Bellevue East, Bellevue West, Bellevue Thunderbird and Mercer Island take part annually.

Sports Roundup

Burnett will try and walk to the Olympics. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter

632497

Katie Burnett never thought she would become a world class athlete. She joined the track team in middle school not to compete, but to build connections with classmates she rarely knew for longer than a few months. But somewhere along the way, Burnett found that each helped maintain the other. During her youth, a sense of place was far from a constant for Burnett. She spent her elementary years at six different schools in Washington, Oregon and Arizona and moved three times during her freshman year of high school alone. After spending time at Newport, Skyline and Kentlake, Burnett and her family moved back to Arizona for her final two years of high school. “It was a lot easier in elementary school,” she said. “In high school you have made more of those deep connections and that makes it a lot harder.” With her life in a seemingly constant state of change, track and field became one of the few reliable outlets for Burnett. She initially raced in more traditional sprints and distance events, but after being introduced to race walking by a teammate, Burnett found her niche. “I was trying everything,” Burnett said. “For the first few years, I just hopped in and competed.” As she grew more comfortable with a sport that is often overlooked by mainstream media and fans, Burnett also found herself achieving at greater levels than she ever had. Wins at local meets turned into regional and national appearances and eventually a spot on the University of Arizona’s team in the javelin throw. But after a year in Tucson, it was clear the chemistry was lacking. In the course of researching potential spots for a transfer, Burnett remembered a friend and teammate from high school that was at William Penn University, an NAIA classified school in Oskaloosa, Iowa. As she qualified for nationals and earned honors throughout the indoor and outdoor seasons for the Statesmen in virtually every field event including pole vault, heptathlon, javelin and high jump, triple jump and discus, Burnett realized race walking could be her ticket to something even bigger. “At first, when I said I was going after this goal of the Olympic Trials and the Olympic team, everyone kind of

n a warm, early June morning, Tiger Mountain is buzzing. Most of the dozens of hikers take to the trails with backpacks, walking sticks or leashed dogs in tow. Only Ed Vervoot and Sally Davies head out packing a chainsaw. As others use the miles of trail that cover Tiger as an escape from the din of city life, Vervoot and Davies have a far more pragmatic goal in mind: clear the trail. Vervoot has been at it for 12 years while Davies is the veteran. She has some 30 years of formal and informal trail maintenance experience because as she put it, “Somebody has got to do it.” Both are on the board of directors for the Issaquah Alps Trail Club, which used to run regular work parties in the area. When those ended a year ago, Vervoot and Davies couldn’t just sit idly by. They remove brush that encroaches on the Josh Suman paths, replace worn tread and even clear fallen trees, hence the chainsaw. “We cleared 28 trees in one day during the winter,” Davies said. “Later that week, we got 22 more just off one trail.” Both retirees, Vervoot and Davies said they each spend around 100 days per year working on the trails of Tiger Mountain. Davies has also worked with groups like Women in the Woods, a project through Mountains-to-Sound Greenway that encourages women to become involved in trail advocacy through specially designed projects. The Greenway, Washington Trails Association and Department of Natural Resources also have either paid staff or volunteers on the trails throughout the year. But with far more wilderness than man hours and without chainsaws, there is still an overflow of work. Hiking has been much more than a recreational outlet for Davies, it has quite literally kept her upright. When her physician suggested knee replacement surgery, Davies balked after hearing horror stories from friends who were younger than her and had become invalids after the procedure. “I told them I would do the surgery if they could promise I would be able to run again,” Davies said. “They couldn’t promise, so I decided not to have the surgery.” What she did instead was dedicate herself to reclaiming the joint one mile at a time by walking the hills in her Bellevue neighborhood and of course, getting on the trails as much as her body allows. Aside from the physical benefits of staying active, Davies and Vervoot both take pride in maintaing trails so many in the area use for respite. “I just love being out here,” Davies said.

Dear Customer, Republic Services (Allied Waste) recently negotiated a 5-year agreement with the Teamsters Local 117 that best serves our employees, our company and, most importantly, our customers. We approached these negotiations with the intentions of taking good care of our team and providing reliable service to our communities. On June 2, our union employees overwhelmingly approved our agreement. You may have seen media coverage about a possible disruption in the collection of recyclables and waste. To be clear, this is due to negotiations between one of our competitors and Teamsters Local 117 and there is no reason to believe Republic’s customers will be impacted by this situation. Republic is proud to have reached a mutually beneficial agreement with Teamsters Local 117, one that ensures continued excellent service to all of our customers in Washington. We are pleased with the outcome of our recent negotiations and feel the process was respectful and collaborative, a true testament to the strength of our relationship. We value our community partnerships and look forward to providing your recycle and waste solutions in the years ahead. Regards,
