Bond survey reveals views about schools 300 Islanders say why they did or did not vote for school bond issue By Mary L. Grady

editor@mi-reporter.com.

The results are in from a survey commissioned by the Mercer Island School District to find out why the $196 million bond issue to rebuild Island schools was so resoundly turned down. The survey, conducted by EMC Research, interviewed a random sample of 300 people on the Island by telephone. Calls were made between May 30 and June 5. The survey was composed of 58 questions in a variety of formats. The School District Board of Directors intends to look closely

at the data as it considers what to do next. Of the respondents who voted, 45 percent said they had voted yes, 50 percent voted no, and 5 percent declined to say how they voted. Of the respondents, 52 percent were female and 28 percent were male. The overwhelming majority of respondents, or 77 percent, were over 45 years old; 42 percent were older than 60. Just 20 percent or respondents were between the ages of 25 to 44. Sixteen percent of respondents did not vote. The survey included data on how non-voting respondents might have voted if they had chosen to do so. Overall, the survey shows that the community believes that Mercer Island schools are doing

well overall in educating students, with 83 percent rating the district between good to excellent. It appears that much of the credit is given to teachers, with 77 percent saying that teachers are doing a good to excellent job. The school district administration was given lower marks with half or less of respondents giving a good to excellent rating for ‘handling of budgets and finances’ along with ‘future planning’ and ‘using tax dollars responsibly.’ The majority of all respondents indicated that they understood what they were voting for. The bond issue was to pay for the rebuilding of Island schools. Yet, well over half of all respondents ranked the physical condition of existing school buildings as good or better. For those who voted to reject the bond issue, the reasons given indicated that they felt the amount of money was too much; they

Copass named citizen of the year Physician led efforts to improve emergency services By Mary L. Grady

editor@mi-reporter.com

Dr. Michael Copass was voted by the Mercer Island City Council as the 2011 Citizen of the Year on June 18. “In a city who is full of people who do remarkable things, we have overachievers of all professions, all ages,” said Mercer Island Mayor Bruce Bassett. But for the years of work in bringing emergency services delivery to the highest standard ever in King County and beyond, Dr. Copass might need to be the citizen of the year for the last several decades. Mike Cero gets credit for nominating and promoting Dr. Copass, said Bassett. They were neighbors on Avalon Drive. Councilman Cero noted in his nomination of Copass that he is an amazing Halloween pumpkin carver. At the Council meeting, more than a dozen firefighters and police came to salute Copass as he received his award. Mercer Island Fire Chief Chris Tubbs spoke on behalf of the Council about the accomplishments and attributes of Dr. Copass. Dr. Copass was one of the founding fathers of Medic One — a notion that was highly controversial when it was first proposed, Tubbs noted. Medic One combines the training of firefighters with that of medical responders who work together to quickly and effectively attend to patients, no matter where they are.

The idea was one thing, but the implementation was quite another. Copass’s focus on every aspect of emergency services is what saw it through. “The leadership, vision and uncompromising nature of Dr. Copass,” Tubbs said, “has set the gold standard for emergency services.” Indeed, a person’s chance of surviving a heart attack in the Seattle area is the best in the nation and perhaps the world. Organizations come from all over the world to learn from Seattle’s program. In addition to Medic One, Copass founded Airlift Northwest, a network of aircraft and helicopters that transport critically ill or injured patients by air to hospitals. He was the director of paramedic training at Harborview Medical Center. Dr. Copass is supposed to be retired by now, but he still sees patients, and by all accounts, keeps a hand in. He is trained as a neurologist and continues to see patients. He is a legend in the EMS community, Tubbs said. It is his uncanny ability to show up at just the right time when an emergency is underway that is part of his persona. And he does not hesitate to correct or participate in the process, Tubbs explained. He demands excellence. “Many EMS providers have the scars to prove it,” Tubbs said. Tubbs worked with Copass at a major disaster right here on Mercer Island. In 1982, two planes collided over Mercer Island and six people died. “For some, having Dr. Copass show up is discom-

Better here than anywhere else. As a firefighter, Tubbs himself has been a patient three times at Harborview. He remembered the time he was taken to be treated for burns at Harborview. As he was rushed in the door at the hospital, he was swarmed by a legion of doctors and nurses tending to him. There was not room for another person to stand at his gurney, he said. But suddenly, there was silence. The crowd parted. And standing there with his arms crossed and that familiar look on his face, was Dr. Copass.

He said: “I heard one of my boys was injured, so I thought I should come see how he is.” “I could have walked on water,” Tubbs said, “to be called ‘one of his boys.’” Dr. Copass thanked the Council for the honor, but said little about his life’s work. Instead, he spoke of coming to live on the Island after he left the Army because it was cheaper than living in the city. He and his wife, Lucy, raised three children who loved the open spaces and the parks, and received ‘ferocious’ schooling. Copass and his wife have recently moved from the Island, a place that he said has a sense of calmness. But, he remains on alert. He still tries to stop “when I see a big red and white truck, and poke my nose into their business.”

were also concerned about timing because of the economy and that it would raise taxes. Next, ‘no’ voters indicated they thought the existing buildings are fine, and that additional construction was wasteful. Finally, ‘no’ voters indicated they believed the planning by the school district was ‘poor’ and there was “a lack of information about the proposal” and it was “too ambitious.” For respondents who voted to approve the bond, 21 percent said that the construction was necessary; that there is a need to improve and update the buildings. The same number voiced that they always vote to “support education, children and … the community.” Another 18 percent said additional buildings or improvements would eliminate overcrowding. Just 11 percent who voted yes, said that they had or will have children in the schools. When asked if there was any other reason they voted ‘yes,’ 27 percent said they believed it would “provide for a good/quality of education,” followed by 16 percent who said

it would eliminate overcrowding. Finally, when all respondents were asked to rate the reasons for why the measure failed on a scale of 1 to 7, with 7 being the most significant, 55 percent said “cost” was the most important reason, with 33 percent who said that the option for rebuilding or renovating was the major reason for the ‘no’ votes. Other data detailed respondents’ beliefs about the shape of Island school buildings, overcrowding and their design. More than two-thirds said they believed that enrollment is increasing. Half agreed the schools were crowded and that it was affecting learning. Fifty-seven percent said that Island schools are falling behind those at other school districts. Respondents were split on the idea that newer school buildings would help teachers improve student learning; with 43 percent saying yes, and 51 percent who said no. When asked about the condition of the present school buildings, more than 70 percent said they should be made to last as long as possible.

Business news Emerald City Smoothie changes ownership July 1 Emerald City Smoothie on Mercer Island has been sold after being put up for sale two years ago. The new owner, Jesse Bactad, will take over on July 1 from original owners Tom and Angela Napier, who opened the location in 2006. Bactad, a former Mercer Island resident, is the president of X Gym in Kirkland. For him, owning the smoothie shop will be an extension of his gym, as a place where people can have their nutritional needs met after working out. When people wonder about the best thing to eat after a workout, Bactad said he wants them to be able to ask, what is the best thing to do right now? “I don’t want to be like a Jamba Juice, where you’re just standing in line, they call your name and you walk right out the door,” he said. “It really is an experience from start to finish.” Emerald City Smoothie’s menu offers 43 different smoothies to choose from, and orders can be customized. Bactad’s personal favorite is the “Lean Body,” which comes in vanilla, strawberry, chocolate or chocolate-peanut butter with a water, soy milk or strawberry base. “It’s lowest in sugar, low in calorie count, very high in protein count,” Bactad said. Nutritional content varies with each handmade smoothie. On a hot day, you might want something that’s fruitier; or post-workout, heavy in protein, he added. The shop also serves steamers and will have samples available. “What sets us apart from a coffee [shop] is that we do have the protein in there, and [the drinks are] caffeine-free; a healthy substitution from a mocha,” Bactad said. The children’s menu features five choices: Apple All-Star, Strawberry Starter, Grape Grand Slam, Berry Blitz and Chocolate Champ. When parents come in with their child, Bactad wants to be able to point them in the right direction, he said. It’s about getting real fruit and protein. Bactad, a Kirkland resident, has one daughter who is almost 1 year old, and his wife is a pediatrician. The following is correspondence from actual clients:

Just this month, Mountains Plus Outdoor Gear officially opened its doors to the public for bicycle service and sales. Mountains Plus has been located on Mercer Island for more than five years, focusing on online sales. The business has been growing steadily and, even during the recent economic downturn, Mountains Plus was ranked #35 as the fastest growing retailer by Inc. Magazine in 2011. Although Mountains Plus is focusing its walk-in attention on cycling, it was founded as an outdoor retailer with the majority of its online sales within the outdoor segment. The product showroom at Mountains Plus will continue to display and provide fittings for its growing selection of trail running and cross-fit shoes, as well as a selection of related adventure running gear such as backpacks and hydration supplies. Founder and owner Erik Viafore graduated from Mercer Island High School in 1988. In 2007, he brought the business to the Island with his young family from Seattle and currently lives within walking distance of the store. “As a member of the community, with children in school, I have always been struck by the limited kids’ bicycle and service options available for families and children here,” Viafore said. “I realized we had the resources and knowledge to fix that and make things easier for my friends and neighbors.” Mountains Plus has been involved in bicycling since 2008, when it began to operate Cyclocrossracing.com, which focuses on this niche sport that has deep roots in the Northwest and Seattle area.

County says whooping cough cases statewide may be higher By Brita Moore

bmoore@mi-reporter.com

According to King County Public Health, there have now been two cases of pertussis (whooping cough) reported from Mercer Island — and there may be more. “Reported cases represent only a fraction of what’s actually out there,” said James Apa, communications manager for Seattle and King County Public Health. “This is a statewide epidemic.” Apa also said that because so many Island residents travel off-Island for work, it is hard to know how much disease exists here. The KCPH website says whooping cough is highly contagious, spread through droplets of the mouth. As of June 16, there are 2,520 cases reported to the Washington State Department of Health, compared with only 179 at this point in 2011. The age group with the highest pertussis rate is 10 to 13 years old. In addition, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia have all seen increases in pertussis cases this year, as compared to

last. Infants and very young children are most at risk, as they can become extremely ill if they catch the disease. People who have whooping cough are urged to keep away from small children and pregnant women, who can pass it on to their newborns. Everyone who is not upto-date with vaccinations is urged to get the vaccine, as only 24 percent of persons older than 18 are up-todate. Children are given a series of pertussis-containing vaccinations at a young age that are required for preschool attendance and K-12 school attendance; however, complete protection from pertussis is not ensured until all doses in the series have been administered. The final vaccine is the TdaP booster given at age 10 or 11. Local pharmacies such as Bartell’s have low-cost vaccines available for people who are currently uninsured or cannot afford it at a health care clinic. “By getting vaccinated, you are protecting the vulnerable and yourself,” Apa said. For more information about whooping cough and where to get a vaccine, visit www.kingcounty.gov/ health/pertussis. There is also a Facebook site (www.facebook.com/ KCPubhealth) and Twitter at @KCPubhealth.

The contest was held at the famous Marshall Chess Club, in New York City, one of the oldest chess clubs in the United States. Since 1931, the club has been in a townhouse in Greenwich Village. Its rooms have seen some of the greatest players in the world play. They include the Royal Game, where José Raúl Capablanca gave his last exhibition, where Alexander Alekhine visited and played speed chess, and where 13-year-old Bobby Fischer defeated Donald Byrne in “The Game of the Century.”

The woman in the Camry remained in her car for a prolonged amount of time until Puget Sound Energy shut off the power, avoiding further damage. Power was restored around 2:15 p.m. The Camry was towed.

Learning lesson

T

he release of the results of the survey by the Mercer Island School District is welcome news. The School Board hired experts to find out what voters were thinking when they considered whether or not to vote for the $196 million bond issue to rebuild Island schools. The bond issue was soundly defeated in April. Just days after the final survey call was made, the results have been published and are being discussed. The School Board met with the City Council on Tuesday morning (after Reporter deadline) to hear the results and strategize about the future, including locations for a possible sixth school. A first look at the results indicates that key assumptions about Island voters were faulty on both sides. Those who opposed the bond were certain that many older voters would be hurt by the tax increase — the implication being that they would not support the measure. Assuming the survey sample is representative of Island voters, more than three-quarters of voters here are 45 years old or more, with 42 percent of the total over the age of 60. It is assumed that older voters are worried about taxes. And that those whose own children are long out of school would not vote for the bonds, right? Not exactly. The survey results reveal that 83 percent of survey respondents, young or old or in the middle, would consider voting for a proposal that would increase taxes. But most did not, citing factors such as the extreme dollar amount of the proposed bonds and doubts about the need for new buildings. The School Board, for its part, believed that Islanders would —as they almost always had — support schools by voting yes. Survey respondents were asked what they felt were the most important ingredients in a first-class educational system. The survey shows that voters overwhelmingly believe good teachers and a challenging curriculum — not the school buildings — are most important. The survey reveals that just 15 percent of respondents felt that “modern buildings, equipment and facilities” were “extremely important” as opposed to the vast majority who believe that teachers and administration — who are well paid — contribute to better learning for students. The School Board has its work cut out for it. But knowing a bit more about what voters think about schools will help.

To the editor Cyclists’ behaviors are rude, dangerous I’m a visitor to Mercer Island and have been doing a lot of walking, utilizing the many shared-use trails on the Island. I’m very concerned that the majority of cyclists I’ve shared the trails with think nothing of zooming past pedestrians without any warning. It is considered a courtesy, if not a requirement, by experienced cyclists to either ring their bell or to call out “on your left” (when passing on the left). Why isn’t this so on Mercer Island? It’s not unthinkable that someone could get seriously hurt (cyclist or pedestrian) if an unaware pedestrian moves unexpectedly just when a cyclist zooms by without sounding a warning. The ignorant cyclists I’ve encountered have been all ages ... is anyone conducting bicycle safety classes for the younger generation of riders? Elizabeth Ainsworth

THE RECORD

PAGE 6 | Wednesday, June 27, 2012

By Officer Rob Jira

Special to the Reporter

Last year, the Mercer Island Police Department saw an increase in the thefts of paddle boards, kayaks and other recreational aquatic equipment. Many of these thefts came from suspects accessing the victim’s homes/property via watercraft after observing their unsecured property lying around their waterfront backyards. Here are some tips to help deter you from becoming a victim of these thefts and also help you increase the chance of recovering your property if you become a victim: • Lock up all of your equipment/property. If your equipment/property isn’t directly visible to a suspect boater passing by, then the chances of them passing by your house without incident increases. • Make a record of the brand, model number, and serial number of all of your equipment. That way

if you do become a victim of theft, the chances of the police recovering your stolen equipment increases as these items are often resold or pawned. • Always lock and secure your boats and personal watercrafts. Never leave the keys to your boats/PWC inside them. • Install motion detector lights on the front and waterfront areas of your property. Suspects/thieves don’t like to be seen and will generally move on to a residence where they can commit a crime without being seen. • Be a good neighbor and watch each other’s property. If you see something suspicious, immediately call 911. The Mercer Island Police Department has put together a crime prevention booklet, available online, to help citizens keep themselves safe. Officer Rob Jira is a member of the Mercer Island Police Department. He can be reached at rob.jira@mercergov.org.

Dog attacks woman and pet out for a walk By Rebecca Mar

rmar@mi-reporter.com

Lillian Giu was walking her dog along her usual route when she was attacked and bitten by an unleashed labradoodle in a neighborhood a couple of blocks from Mercer Island High School on Thursday, June 21. The victim’s dog, a 20-pound poodle-terrier mix, was also attacked. The labradoodle had been playing with a young girl in a yard in the 4100 block of 93rd Avenue S.E., before it charged Giu and her dog, Mikey. The girl’s shouting for the lab to stop went unheeded. Neighbors who heard Giu screaming The suspect threatened to shoot the victim. One witness was present. The suspect was arrested at 10:30 p.m. on the I-90 floating bridge and was booked into the King County Jail for felony harassment. Malicious mischief:

Someone broke the back sliding glass door of a residence in the 3700 block of East Mercer Way between 10 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. while the resident was gone. Two large dogs were kept in the room where the door was shattered, and there was no evidence of entry into the residence or theft.

June 17 DUI: Police stopped a driver, 24, at 2:48 a.m. in the 4100 block of Island Crest Way and found that he was significantly impaired. He was arrested at 3 a.m. and received a courtesy transport after being processed at the MIPD. Indecent exposure: A

immediately responded and helped to fend off the attacking dog. By the time it was all over, Giu remembers at least five to seven people came to the rescue. A police officer and an aid unit responded. Giu sustained injuries to her face, neck, arms and feet while trying to protect her little dog, but decided not to receive stitches in the emergency room because she would be leaving town in two days. “I thought, I can just tough it out,” Giu said. Her dog, however, had to have five stitches at an emergency animal hospital. “I walk in the same neighborhood,” Giu said. “Now I can’t anymore; it’s just so scary.” 19-year-old Kent woman was cited for indecent exposure at 6:25 p.m. in the 3700 block of 78th Avenue S.E. after she wrecked her razor scooter and struck her chin on the pavement. An aid unit responded and recommended stitches. The girl’s uncle took her to a hospital.

June 18 Broken windshield:

Someone used a piece of wood to smash the windshield of a Volkswagen Jetta parked in front of the owner’s residence in the 4400 block of 88th Avenue S.E. sometime between 6:30 p.m. and 9 a.m. The victim found the piece of wood next to the vehicle.

June 19 Arrest: A police officer using radar in the 8600 block of North Mercer Way caught a vehicle speeding 35 mph in a 25 mph zone. The driver, 53, was arrested at 9:39 a.m. for driving with a suspended license.

City readies bond issue Island Forum | Timebanking on Mercer Island for new fire station for the replacement of the fire trucks over the next 5-10 years. The Council agreed that the station is at the end of its useful life and would be in the best interest of public safety to renovate it; however, the costs will remain at or below average of other cities’ similar projects. At the next two meetings, proceedings will continue toward putting the measure on November’s ballot. The finalized bond will be read at the July 16 meeting, and Councilmembers will ask questions and discuss it. They will vote on whether or not to put it on the ballot at the Aug. 6 meeting. Design plans for the fire station are available at the city’s website at www.mercergov.org.

The Mercer Island City Council has decided to create a bond issue regarding the renovation of the South end fire station that would go on November’s ballot. The Council met June 16 at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center to hear presentations from architects regarding the potential design of the fire station and the cost outline of the project. “We are trying to keep it a lean project,” deputy city manager Noel Treat said. The possible bond issue on the November ballot will be asking for less than $5 million from citizens. It will also include funding for replacements of selfcontained breathing apparatuses that firefighters use when inside burning buildings and partial funds

City issues annual water quality report By Reporter Staff

The city’s annual water report was distributed to Island households last week. In it, the city lists the regulated substances in water delivered to Island homes and businesses. Those substances include: barium, chlorine, chromium, fluoride, nitrates and organic carbon. The water is also rated for turbidity — or the cloudiness of the water. Samples of ‘delivered water’ are also tested for copper and lead. Tests conducted in 2011 for these substances show that they are within acceptable limits for domestic water supplies. The water in Mercer Island homes and businesses is purchased from the City of Seattle, which maintains a system of reservoirs that serves some 1.3 million people in Seattle and King County. The City of Mercer Island pays Seattle $1.49 million each year, or

approximately $124,000 each month, for water. Utility officials want residents to remember that anything that goes down the drain eventually ends up in the region’s water supply. Items that are sometimes flushed down the toilet can cause sewer backups or pump breakdowns that may cause systems to overflow and spill. Officials warn that even if items are labeled ‘flushable,’ they are not, and can harm waste disposal systems contributing to breakdowns, increased maintenance, and worse, overflows. Other serious problems for sewer systems are grease and oils, and certain foods such as ice cream or butter that people wash down drains. Other items that people dispose of such as medications or health and beauty items such as lotions, cosmetics and house cleaning supplies, can also cause problems. Utility officials say that some of these items do not biodegrade and may stay in the environment for years.

Mercer Island

This fall, a collaborative effort by Mercer Island Youth & Family Services (MIYFS), the Transition Initiative (TIMI), and other Island residents will launch a Timebank for Mercer Island. A Timebank is a currency of skills (exchange) that enhances and builds community connections while allowing members of the community to provide for some of their own needs. The goal of this project Cindy is to enrich our Island commu- Goodwin nity from within by increasing social and economic resiliency. Timebanking is a way to exchange services without using the cash economy. For every hour you spend doing something for someone else, you earn a credit. You can then exchange your credit for someone spending an hour doing something for you. For instance, you might give guitar lessons to one person and get help with computer software from someone else, who in turn receives house

repair from someone else, and so on. All services are considered equal in the Timebank; one hour is always equal to any other hour. Anything you are willing to do can be offered, and anything you need can be requested. The IRS has consistently ruled that Timebanks are not commercial barter organizations, so time credits earned are not treated as taxable income. Timebanking is rich with social and economic benefits. When people interact and share in each other’s wellbeing, a mutual community investment develops. Today, the unemployment rate remains stubbornly high. Many people simply do not have the disposable cash income to invest in nonessential services. For those, Timebanking can provide direct budget relief. In addition, and indeed for all who invest in Timebanking, it helps build the types of bridges that strengthen personal relationships and strengthen the weave of the social fabric.

Outdoor Furniture

Because exchanges in the Timebank are usually circular, rather than back and forth between the same two members, a strong coordination system is important. Such a system will be in place for the launch of the Mercer Island Timebank in the form of an online software and database system that tracks Timebank accounts for each member. The software also facilitates members connecting with others who have services that they would like to give or receive. After 25 years of experimentation, learning and expansion, the United States now has over 300 registered Timebanks. The smallest has 15 members; the largest has 3,000. At present, Timebanks have enrolled around 30,000 members in the United States, the same number in the United Kingdom, and an additional 100,000 scattered across 34 countries.

Regionally, the cities of Kirkland, Redmond and Bellevue already have their own Eastside Timebank (http://eastsidetimebank. org) with over 100 members. To assist the Mercer Island Timebank, the Eastside Timebank stands ready to help by providing background checks, insurance and technical assistance. The launch of the MI Timebank this autumn has generated excitement in Islanders of all ages and backgrounds, much as it has in thousands of people worldwide. Watch for additional information about the launch over the summer and sign up. In addition to getting a helping hand, help around your house, or learning a new hobby, Timebanking will build healthy relationships and support a strong community on Mercer Island. Cynthia Goodwin is the director of Mercer Island Youth & Family Services.

MERCER ISLAND REPORTER | www.mi-reporter.com er members of the team, started playing two seasons ago. He and friend Ryan Dawson played together in high school. Dawson is one of two father-son duos on the team. He plays with dad Dave Dawson, while Mike Curtiss plays with son, Keven. “I’ve known a lot of the guys for a while,” said Baer. After the former junior college player hit the homer in the first inning, he had to be careful for any repeat attempts — in this league once one team has hit a home run, they must hit any other home runs toward center field — past the pole in the outfield, otherwise it won’t count. Against the Shockers, Spank Me was up 11-2 in the fourth inning, but as often happens in slo-pitch, the Shockers scored four in back-to-back innings to make the game 11-10. Three runs by Spank Me and the gang in the sixth gave the team the win, 14-10. Levin said that’s the way it typically is — you never know on a weekly basis what’s going to happen. “Our second game was a thriller and we won 8-7, but the next week we got pounded. You never know,” said the pitcher. While for some of the more senior members of the team, the competitiveness has dulled slightly, Levin said they still enjoy the wins. “We have a lot of fun,” he said. “People still take it pretty seriously. No one wants to be the one to make an error.” No matter how the game ends, the team usually winds up finding something to celebrate at the Roanoke afterward.

Two Mercer Island residents headed to Omaha, Neb., this week for the U.S. Swimming Olympic Trials. Ethan Hallowell, who just finished his freshman year at Stanford University, will be swimming the 50 freestyle race, while Hannah Weiss, 16, will be swimming in the 100 butterfly, 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke. At the end of Hallowell’s first season swimming for the Cardinal, he was ranked fourth in the event with a 19.82 time. He is ranked 56th in country. Weiss, who goes to Mercer Island High School, is strongest in the 100 backstroke, where she is ranked 25th overall. Weiss swims with King Aquatics as a member of the national team. Weiss qualified for the trials last year during a meet in December. The men’s 50 freestyle prelims are scheduled for Saturday, June 30, while Weiss events took place on Monday and Tuesday, with the 200 backstroke race on Saturday. The swimming trials will be broadcast online with many of the preliminary races available on NBCSN with the finals for the day airing on NBC.

ing. “Bert had a few injuries and couldn’t run,” wrote Blumenthal of the team’s preparations. “The group also went on numerous hikes to prepare, but knew this would be a challenge as we are all in our early 40s — and not exactly fit for high altitude climbing.” Finally, it was time for the group to head up the mountain. The team left for Paradise last Monday, June 18, finding the temperature in the mid-30s and facing rain and snow. “That morning the temperature on the summit was 8 degrees. It wasn’t looking good and in the prior two weeks only a few teams had reached the summit due to harsh weather,” said Blumenthal. The group hiked to Camp Muir by Monday evening, and as they neared the 10,000-foot mark, the weather cleared. “It was cool, but dry. Tuesday morning we hiked

to the Ingraham Flats at 11,200 feet to establish high camp,” he said. “After a large dinner, we went to bed early Tuesday evening and rose at 2 a.m., Wednesday. After gearing up with headlamps, crampons, ice axes and harnesses, we started the slow accent up Disappointment Cleaver. The sun rose a little after 4 a.m. and the visibility improved with clear sunny skies. We were on the summit about 7:30 a.m. and spent a half an hour enjoying the views from the highest peak in the state.” Blumenthal said it was a great experience, but a challenging one. “It was a fantastic experience,” he said. “There were certainly a few areas where we all felt a little out of our comfort zone. It was steep and tight in many areas of the route. As we saw in the news yesterday, a misstep could be deadly. Aside from a few sunburns and blisters, we all returned tired and happy.”

Mercer Island was the host of the AAA Little League Bellevue/Mercer Island, consisting of 25 teams. Two Mercer Island teams played for the title with the Mariners, managed by Jary Krauser, beating the Orioles, managed by Lew Malakoff, 7-6 in eight innings. The Mariners team consists of Hannah Dickinson, Jack Dilworth, Kevin Hirschowitz, Jaden Krauser, Will MacCormack, Devan Mai, Sam Merritt, Cosmo Neames, Andrew Sugamele and PJ Yancey. The team is coached by Krauser, and was assisted by Scott MacCormack and Heip Mai. The Orioles team includes: Luca Debray, Mack Dougan, Gabriel Greenstein, Boaz Malakoff, Elias Malakoff, Max Malakoff, Max Medin, Joshua Miner, Ashwin Raman, William Raymond, Grace Shaddle and Derek Snyder. The team is coached by Malakoff, who was assisted by Barry Dougan and Ed Malakoff.

Four Mercer Island dads decided at the beginning of the year to tackle a big climb: Mount Rainier. The Island residents, all in their 40s, made it to the summit last week, enjoying clear weather, just days before the mountain claimed the lives of several climbers and a National Park Ranger. The group included Jeff Blumenthal, Richard Aylen, Bert Loosmore and friend Jameson Morrell — who used to live on the Island. Blumenthal’s brother-inlaw, Jeff Ward, works with North Cascades Mountain Guides and is an experienced guide. Ward has climbed Rainier over 100 times and guided the team to the top of the mountain. None of the four in the group had ever climbed Rainier, but began training at the beginning of the year. The group ran the Mercer Island Half Marathon in March as part of their train-

Mercer Islander helps to keep Safeco Field green

Contributed Photo

Mercer Island resident Scott Jenkins is the vice president of ballpark operations for the Seattle Mariners. He has worked to keep the stadium, and field, as green as possible.

To encourage stadium employees and baseball fans to dispose of their waste properly, Jenkins said they have designated specific containers for compost, plastic bottles and landfill waste. Corresponding signs and visuals make it easier for people to sort out what goes where. “Signage is key,” he said, adding that they have saved $95,000 in landfill costs since setting up these “Zero Waste” stations. Another way the Mariners have incorporated sustainability and environmental awareness into the culture at Safeco Field has been through trivia games and giveaways on game days. While T-shirts and bobble heads are commonplace, the Mariners have also been known to give fans kitchen compost containers and potting soil during the last couple of years. Jenkins said the latter has been really popular among

The calm, low-key Noel Treat has quietly slipped into his new position as deputy city manager of Mercer Island on May 29. However, he already feels pleased. “[Mercer Island] has a lot going for it,” Treat said. “I’m happy to be part of the city team. You don’t generally find a team this strong across the board.” Previously, Treat was deputy superi nt e n d e nt for Seattle P u b l i c Schools and proved his mettle helping manage a 2010 f i n a n c i a l Noel Treat scandal. Now he is taking on a new set of responsibilities in helping to oversee the city government, such as managing capital improvement projects, Human Resources and external relations, as well as taking over in the interim for the director of the design services group, who has retired. While it may seem like a huge contrast between school district work and city government, he does not see it that way. “The subject matter is different [in city government from a school district], but the basic sort of skill sets and strategic thinking and planning and budgeting, it’s all basically the same, in my view,” Treat said. He has also served as the chief of staff for King County Executive and as a policy and government relations officer for King County, to name a couple highlights of his career. Treat’s experience with schools will prove to be vital with the ongoing conflict

of crowding in the Mercer Island School District. SPS is also facing facilities issues, he said, yet there is one key difference. “There’s not a lot of places here where you can find a city block or two to build a new school,” Treat said. “That’s an extra challenge that Mercer Island faces that Seattle doesn’t.” Treat, who thinks very highly of MISD, does intend to bring the city and school district together to help answer questions and solve difficulties. “We want to be a really good partner to the school district,” Treat said. “It’s to everyone’s benefit for us to be working together.” Another issue he will be tackling soon is that of the South end fire station. The old structure is not seismically sound, Treat said, and “it needs to be to serve the community best.” The City Council met on June 16 and agreed to move forward with the renovation as a November ballot measure along with money needed for self-contained breathing apparatuses and new fire trucks. The 42-year-old Treat has lived in Washington since 1995, after growing up in New Mexico and attending school in Colorado and Arizona. He lives in the Mount Baker neighborhood in Seattle and has brought his children to soccer clinics on the Island, where he goes on bike rides. Having been familiar with the community in these ways, he is delighted to serve. “Having this opportunity with Mercer Island is perfect for what I want to do,” Treat said. “I feel very lucky to be here.” Contact Noel Treat via email at noel.treat@mercergov.org.

SPIRITUAL CONSULTING

THOMAS DENTISTRY

The subject of sports usually does not come up during conversations about sustainability, but Scott Jenkins is working to change that. As vice president of ballpark operations for the Seattle Mariners, the Mercer Island resident spends his days “greening” Safeco Field and working to turn it into an eco-friendly ballpark. On Wednesday, he shared some of their techniques and practices with Redmond businesses during this month’s Greater Redmond Chamber of Commerce member luncheon. “We’ve had some unbelievable success,” he said about the programs they have initiated. Jenkins joined the Mariners organization midseason in 2006, and one of the first things he did was go over the organization’s

utility bills and see where they could cut energy use. Since then, the stadium’s natural gas use has been reduced by 60 percent, the electricity use by 30 percent and water use by 15 percent. In addition to being good for the planet, he told the lunch crowd that cutting down on utility usage has also been good for their bottom line as they have saved about $1.5 million at Safeco Field since he joined the team. “It makes sense to conserve,” he said. One of the biggest successes they have seen at the stadium has been with its recycling program. Jenkins said Safeco Field’s recycling rate — the amount of overall waste that is recycled — in 2005 was 12 percent. That number has since increased to 81 percent, but he said he wants to see that figure bumped up to 90 percent.

Noel Treat is new deputy city manager

fans. He added that using sports to engage people and encourage them to be more environmentally aware is a unique way to tell the sustainability story and inspire people to go green in their everyday lives. “If we can do it, anyone can do it at home,” Jenkins said. In addition to encouraging stadium workers and fans to do their part, Jenkins said the businesses, vendors, organizations and consultants they have worked and partnered with have been an important part of their success. He said buying the correct type of equipment, utensils and products has a significant effect on their programs. “It’s really a collaborative effort,” he said, adding that he also meets with his counterparts at other stadiums and ballparks to see what they are doing and what has worked for them. Jenkins is also a board member of the Green Sports Alliance (GSA), a nonprofit with the mission to “help sports teams, venues and leagues enhance their environmental performance,” according to its website. The organization started in 2010 and has its roots in the Pacific Northwest: its six founding members are the Seattle Seahawks, Mariners, Sounders FC and Storm and the Vancouver Canucks and Portland Trail Blazers. Now the GSA has more than 90 team and venue members representing 13 different sports leagues throughout North America. “[Going green has] become one of the hottest topics among all ballparks in many of the leagues,” Jenkins said.
