Sammamish’s Good Samaritan Episcopal Church unveils community masterpiece BY KEVIN ENDEJAN KENDEJAN@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM


ineteen months, 6,000 volunteer hours and more than 50,000 pieces of glass later, Cheryl Smith can finally take a breath.

“There’s a huge sense of pride, a huge sense of relief,” said the Sammamish muralist. “There are very mixed emotions, and just sadness that it is over.” Smith unveiled the largest piece of her career on June 17 at the Good Samaritan Episcopal Church where she is also the artist in residence. Her 200-square foot mosaic was placed on the reredos — Latin for “wall behind the altar” — and features a brightly colored and abstract rendition of the trinity. While there are some specific religious references in the design, Smith said the colors and images invite people from all backgrounds to interpret the vision in their own way. “We left it to the eye of the beholder,” she said. “We wanted it to be a powerful viewing of anyone of any faith.” Diversity was also key in the construction of

the mosaic. “This was an opportunity for people of various faiths and cultures throughout Sammamish to come together to create art and friendships,” said Smith, noting people of the Jewish and Vedic faiths, along with several other churches across the Plateau, contributed to the artwork. Within the Good Samaritan itself, Smith directed the Liturgical Arts Committee — a group of 25 volunteers with little to no artistic experience. The group started by creating 14 mosaic stations of the cross in the spring of 2010. The small stations, located along the inner walls of the nave, all represent different events in the final hours of Jesus Christ’s life.

It was a week after the hanging of the mosaic stations, however, things took a sad turn. Dan Kruse, who was the church’s original architect and designed the reredos, unexpectedly passed away at the age of 60. Members of the Good Samaritan responded to the tragedy by donating money at his funeral and that’s when the idea for the giant mosaic was born. “We felt that it would be an incredible memorial to him to beautify his wall,” Smith said. After months of planning, construction began in early 2011. “It’s so much bigger than the 14 stations of the cross combined and took so much longer and was so much more work and so much SEE MOSAIC, 9

Rebuffing economic trends, the Issaquah Highlands has managed to attract a major retail developer and keep it. The city celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony for the Grand Ridge Plaza, 25 acres of shopping, restaurants and entertainment June 26. It’s the final major feature left to be built in the planned community. “It will be the heart and soul of what we know as the Issaquah Highlands,” said Rene Ancinas, CEO of Port Blakely, the Highlands master developer.

Celebrate July 4th Both Issaquah and Sammamish are planning events for the Fourth of July, but locals will need to head to the Plateau to enjoy fireworks. Check inside for a special section on activities in Sammamish. Issaquah’s Down Home Fourth kicks off at 11 a.m. with a kid’s parade from Rainier Avenue and Northwest Dogwood Street and wrap up after the 1:30 p.m. pie-eating contest. Events include live music and kids activities. Issaquah History Museums is also planning hands-on history projects for kids at the Issaquah Depot, next to the festival, which is at Veteran’s Memorial Park. Personal fireworks are banned in both cities.

A Sammamish man called police June 22 to report that someone stole nearly $7,000 in appliances from his home in the 21800 block of Southeast 1st Street. There was a dishwasher, washer, dryer, riding lawn mower and fridge missing. Someone also removed a standard pool table valued at $3,000. The man suspected a former tenant of his rental home. The house was unoccupied for the last two months and he believes someone broke into the house through the garage door, which he leaves unlocked.

AROUND TOWN Cocaine bust downtown Police arrested two men June 21 for selling cocaine at a pair of Issaquah taverns. The arrests followed a sixmonth investigation. The men, a 38-yearold from Issaquah and a 31-year-old from Burien, bought and sold the drug at the taverns. Issaquah Police, the Coalition of Small Police Agencies and Special Operations Team worked together on the investigation. A drug dog was used in the case.

Group challenges bag ban A group is challenging Issaquah’s new bag ban law and hopes to get an initiative on the ballot this fall. Led by Seattle resident Craig Keller, the group has until July 7 to collect 2,000 signatures. So far, 400 signatures have been collected. Issaquah’s new law bans single-use plastic shopping bags and imposes a 5 cent fee for paper bags as a motivation to use reusable bags.

Cans withstand grizzly test BY CELESTE GRACEY

Two grizzly bears, the biggest beasts in the Pacific Northwest, had a try at Cleanscapes new bear-proof cans destined for several Issaquah homes this summer – and the cans won. The Woodland Park Zoo included the demonstration in its Bear Affair birthday party for its two 800-pound brother grizzlies June 9. Caretakers filled the cans with leftover

pizza boxes, cake platters and colorful pinatas as an incentive for the grizzlies. While about 25,000-30,000 black bears live in Washington, many of which come down from the foothills into Issaquah during the spring, biologists estimate that there may only be about 60-80 of the grizzlies. Those bears are about twice the size of a black bear and rarely seen in the area. Bear cans not only prevent the wild animals from making a mess of the street, but also keep them from growing dependent on humans for food.

Enjoy the Fourth of July by letting the pros do the fireworks


n a few short days, it will be the Fourth of July. It’s a wonderful day to celebrate. Unfortunately, for some it will be a disaster – all because of illegal fireworks. Most cities in King County ban the sale and use of fireworks – and for good reason. Errant rockets set roofs on fire. Exploding anything scares pets into hysterics with some running off never to be seen again by their owners. Worst, though, it the personal and permanent damage that can be done when something explodes in your hand or near your face. And, yes, that happens. When it does, the consequences are horrific. Fingers are blown off. Eyesight is lost. Lives are changed forever. And for what? It’s not that we all can’t enjoy fireworks. It’s remarkably easy. Many cities around here or nearby will have professional fireworks displays on the Fourth that are far better than anything an individual person can afford. They’re safe – and spectacular. There’s no reason for individuals to buy or use fireworks. Even those touted as “safe and sane” really aren’t, for the most part. Anything that burns is inherently dangerous. We urge our readers to truly enjoy the Fourth of July. Have a party. Invite friends. Crank up the barbecue. And then sit back and let the professionals put on the fireworks show. Trust us – you’ll enjoy the night far better than spending it in a hospital emergency room, watching doctors try and patch up the damage done from having a little personal fireworks fun. Being there will be anything but “fun.”



here was good news on the local economic front this week. Ground was broken for Grand Ridge Plaza, a 25-acre complex of shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Residents in the Highlands should be trilled. As reported in the Reporter today by staff writer Celeste Gracey, Regency Centers will open a 12-screen Regal theater along with a number of sit-down restaurants – and have all of it in place by next summer. A Safeway grocery store will follow in November. All-in-all, there will be about 225,000 square feet of retail space added to the Highlands: a gas station, clothing stores, boutiques – things that by their very nature make life a little easier and convenient. New developments always require a balance of developers’ wants and residents’ needs. Regency Centers looks as if it has found the right amount of each.

A bad hair day? I doubt it


’ve been over the moon excited to see the new Disney/Pixar movie, “Brave,” since I saw the teaser trailer months ago, for two reasons: 1. I love Disney movies. A true product of the Disney revolution, I grew up watching animated movies, pretty much, from day one. And while I still consider “The Lion King,” to be one of my favorite movies (and soundtracks) to date, I have since Keegan Prosser fallen in love with everything Disney/ Pixar touches. Did you see Toy Story 3? Tears, I tell ya. Tears. 2. I love Gingers. Being a frecklefaced hustler myself, I’ve long been a fan of the fiery, headstrong mermaid that rebelled against tradition and followed her heart. And while I feel like

REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK I’m cheating on my main girl Ariel just a bit, I wholeheartedly support another, even more aesthetically accurate, ginger princess. The fact that the resemblance between myself and Princess Merida of “Brave” is uncanny (my aunt has literally been calling me Merida for weeks) is just a plus. Last Sunday, I had the chance to see “my movie” in theaters. And while I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the flick – about a rambunctious Scottish Princess who seeks to change her fate, no matter the cost - I continue to be perturbed about the stereotypes this ginger heroine supports. I get it. We’re sassy. A tad opinionated. Maybe a bit loud. But between Disney/Pixar’s portrayal of ginger characters (also see:

on-public-funds) non-evidence based “think” tank. First, charter schools do not operate in a free market. According to a New York Times editorial in 2006 (debatepedia. Debate:_Charter_schools), most money spent on charter schools comes from taxes and, increasingly, goes to “for-profit educational” corporations with topheavy administrations, only one or two good teachers,

“Finding Nemo,” “Toy Story 2,” “The Incredibles,”) – and the assertion that gingers don’t have souls (thanks, “South Park”) – society is giving me, and my fellow carrot tops, MAD ginger problems. Don’t get me wrong. “Brave,” is a great movie. In true Disney/Pixar fashion, it is equal parts heart-wrenching and hilarious (the latter being the result of casting Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane as Lords MacIntosh and Dingwall, respectively). And Merida is a lead to be proud off. She’s fiery and fun, adventurous and loyal – if not a bit impulsive. I’m proud to say I possess these qualities as well. But is it because I have red hair? I’m not sure I’m convinced.

many underpaid and often uncertified teachers, and little accountability. Second, despite Lund’s enthusiasm (supplemented by “consulting”-firm paid, non-resident signaturecollectors at Target in Issaquah and elsewhere), overall records of charter schools are no better than the public schools they seek to replace. Third, their “competition” tends to suck taxes from public schools to pay

for charter schools, in effect reducing funds to maintain quality in public schools. For these reasons, as a grandparent of a publicschool student in Issaquah, I do not want to see charter schools approved here. I hope readers in Issaquah and Sammamish will not fall for another “for profit” scheme that promises much, delivers little, and hurts quality in public schools.

Culture, fun at Highlands Day

BY celeste gracey

For Zuleika Mathieu, Issaquah Highlands Day wasn’t just a chance to share her culture with the neighborhood ­- her daughter performed a traditional Mexican dance with several peers on stage - but a chance to connect with community. “It’s just perfect,” she said. “I love it.” A member of a latino mom’s group, the dance wasn’t the result of a performing troupe, but moms passionate about their culture. The festival’s community atmosphere was exactly what she had hoped to find. The event, which had a multi-cultural

theme, was starkly different from last year’s blowout event, which was centered around the opening of Swedish Hospital. This year the community reclaimed the event and it ruminated with its family essence. People wandered into the affair from all directions. Few bothered to drive. Neighbors found each other between the bouncy houses and the free snow cones. The event also honored its Highlands volunteers, including T.K. Panni, who was given the key to the Issaquah Highlands. He was an early member of the Issaquah Highlands Community Association, worked with the community garden, and volunteered on the architectural review team.

LWSD to offer girls badminton in 2013

Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter

Blazing the trail forward Issaquah Alps Trail Club provides one piece of trail maintenance puzzle On 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 Josh Suman 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 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 Mountainsto-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 maintaining trails so many in the area use for respite. “I just love being out here,” she said.

The Lake Washington School District will offer badminton as a sport at its three high schools beginning in the spring of 2013. The district reviewed its athletic offerings as part of the transition to four-year high schools and surveyed female student-athletes on desirable additions to the current athletic programming. Two-hundred-eighty girls played badminton at the junior high level in the district and after reviewing availability of facilities, qualified coaching candidates and competition, decided to move forward with the process. “We have a history of strong badminton programs at the junior highs in our district,” deputy superintendent Traci Pierce said. “It is an Olympic sport and we believe it will be a popular offering at the high school level.” The Lake Washington teams will compete against one another as well as squads from Mercer Island and Bellevue.

‘Artistic Journey’ begins June 29 in Sammamish

Groundbreaking CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

brave enough to take on the project, plans to open the 12-screen Regal theater and a core of sit-down restaurants by summer 2013. A Safeway grocery store would follow that November. The plan calls for about 225,000 square feet of retail space and includes a gas station, clothing stores and boutiques. It’s not Port Blakely’s first attempt to build out the development. In 2006, it was so sure of its High Streets lifestyle shopping center, something akin to UVillage in Seattle, that it laid new roads and installed utilities. The plan collapsed with the economy and Port Blakely has been courting retail developers since. Lifestyle centers have proven unsuccessful, and so the plan has changed. “There have been many visions,” Ancinas said. “It’s always evolved over time.” Grand Ridge Plaza still will have gathering places and walkability. However, it also will have more parking than some originally envisioned. There has to be a balance between what retailers need and what cities want, and this plan does that, said Craig Ramey senior vice president at Regency.

The plan still calls for some street retail, but still gives easy parking access, Ramey said. “We want (residents) to walk down from their houses and go shopping.”

mish Ace Hardware also donated grouting supplies and Northwest Art Glass donated much of the stained glass.

She said everyone in the church took part in the project, whether it was just placing one piece of glass or taking ownership

Issaquah first began seeking a vision for the Highlands in 1989 as a “smart growth” concept for suburban community, said Mayor Ava Frisinger. “That vision will soon become more a reality.” Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter staff writer Celeste Gracey can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.

Robertson let Smith design the entire project without any suggestions. She has since found liturgical symbolism throughout the mosaic, including repre-

sentations of the Pentacost, peace and celebration. “It completes our worship space,” she said. Assistant editor Kevin Endejan can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5054.

The Sammamish Arts Commission will begin displaying the work of two Sammamish artists – Carol Ross and Anna Macrae – in a combined art exhibit, “An Artistic Journey,” on June 29. The exhibition will open at the Commons Gallery of the Sammamish City Hall today with an artists’ reception from 6-8 p.m. It will remain on view until Oct. 10. Ross and Macrae are established local artists who have given their time and talent to build and support a vibrant visual arts community for Sammamish and the Eastside. Macrae’s abstract expressionistic paintings respond to color, texture and forms found in nature and are a compliment to the landscapes of Ross, whose ethereal work is emotionally laden. Together, their work finds common ground and contrasts in space and architecture.
