CLEAN CHANGES

Issaquah’s new garbage hauler promises fewer missed cans, better service BY CELESTE GRACEY CGRACEY@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

A

s the mechanical arm on the garbage truck shakes a can overhead, the 25ton dumper jostles like a red wagon rolling down a rocky hill. Rodney Watkins, who has been a hauler for 10 years, checks a camera monitor to see if can is empty. A few more bangs and the arm lowers the bin to the curb. Technology has completely changed garbage collection in the past five years, and Cleanscapes is leading the way, he says. Issaquah switched its garbage hauler from Waste Management to Cleanscapes July 1. While cheaper rates and rebranded cans are a certainty for residents, the company says locals will also find unmatched customer service. Practically, that means fewer missed cans,

Cleanscapes Storefront In addition to its phone services, Cleanscapes plans to open a storefront at Gilman Village where customers can make changes to their plan, dump hard to recycle items and buy trash-reducing ware. The first of its kind, it expects to open sometime this month. 317 NW Gilman Blvd, #22, Issaquah For more information, customer service can also be reached at 425-837-1234 or store@cleanscapes.com. said John Taylor, a Cleanscapes spokesperson. A different hauler in Seattle missed 300400 cans a week. When Cleanscapes took that same route, it only missed about 10, he said. The accuracy is in the technology. The com-

pany uses a geography information system to mark exactly where customers place their cans. If a driver misses one, they will see it on their computer route maps, which look much like a large car GPS. If haulers skips a can, because it’s not out or a bear got to it first – wildlife had scattered trash from a couple cans in Talus on Monday – they can easily mark down the reason. The trucks are also fitted with a number of cameras, which look not only into the trash compactor, but around the truck for safety. The cameras also prove useful for any disputes, including car accidents or whether the customer really put their can out in time. On Talus, Watkins set down his last can and the truck lurched forward with a whine similar to a wind-up toy. He laughed, saying he didn’t even have to put his foot on the gas.

SEE GARBAGE, 7

Plans to build Sammamish’s first community garden at Beaver Lake Park are no more. The City Council voted June 5 to stop spending money on the site, instructing city staff to come back with proposals to two other sites, the Lower Commons or Southeast Eighth Street Park. Prompted by a presentation from the Sammamish Community Garden Steering Committee, the Council decided it would be best to explore other options. “I commend you for stepping up and reaching out to us,” said John James, deputy mayor. “Oftentimes when the wheels of the bus get turning it’s easy to go along with it.” The steering committee raised its concerns with various aspects of the Beaver Lake site. Member Ann Precup highlighted several issues, including power lines that run SEE GARDEN, 3

Eastside mayors talk collaboration at forum BY CELESTE GRACEY cgracey@issaquahreporter.com

Economic growth and new development were at the center of discussion for five Eastside mayors June 27 as they took questions at the Bellevue Downtown Association’s annual mayor’s forum. Asked to give a 20-year outlook, Bellevue Mayor Conrad Lee envisioned that downtown alone would add 38,000 jobs and 9,000 new residents. Just as Bellevue planned its downtown growth many years ago, Issaquah is going through a similar process with its Central Issaquah Plan, said Mayor Ava Frisinger. She spoke about how increasing density, instead of suburban sprawl, is better for the environment. Issaquah expects to add 8,000-9,000 new housing units, many multiple family, and about 7 million to 10

million square feet of commercial development in the next 20 years. Kirkland, Redmond and Mercer Island all foresaw the impacts light rail will have on their communities in the next 20 years. Redmond Mayor John Marchione spoke in depth about adding more residential housing closer to downtown. “You’ll have more choices of where you want to live,” he said. Mercer Island Mayor Bruce Bassett was more conservative, saying that the island city will look much like it does today. “We’re trying to have economic development and move forward, but we’re trying to do it in ways that lower impact,” Bassett said. While Kirkland Mayor Joan McBride foresaw population growth in the next 20 years, she focused on the city’s new “world class” indoor recreation center and com-

One of the goals of the moderator, James Whitfield, was to focus on how the cities can collaborate on issues. Including a comment from Marchione about working through issues on the BelRed Road, the mayors felt they had done well at collaborating. “It’s unusual where we don’t work well

together,” McBride said. Marchione recalled one incident where a business came to Redmond, bragging that it would help with economic development. He was interested at first, but when he learned they were from Factoria, he told them he didn’t consider the move adding to the economy. Economic development is regional, not just civic, he said.

Parking dispute turns to assault

Community reading A citywide event for Sammamish residents All Sammamish Reads, will feature Garth Stein’s “The Art of Racing in the Rain: A Novel.” The goal is to have the entire community read the same book throughout the summer, then participate in a variety of events. To make the program inclusive, Stein‚ juvenile fiction title, “Racing in the Rain: My Life as a Dog” will be provided for children. The reading event will conclude at 6:30 p.m., Sept. 11 in a conversation with Stein at Eastside Catholic School. Copies of the two selected titles are available for check-out at the Sammamish Library. Call the library for more details and information, 425-392-3130.

over the property, inadequate parking, a difficult terrain for planting and limited sunlight. As an alternative, the steering committee gave its unanimous approval for the Lower Commons, an area located below Sammamish City Hall. “We believe by locating it there it will give Sammamish more of a sense of community with a garden being more centrally located, it would be more impactful to all residents,” said committee member Stephanie Hibner. The group highlighted many positives about the site, including exposure to sunlight, a flat surface and ample parking. They also said that the cost would be significantly cheaper, noting the Lower Commons would cost approximately $94,000, while Beaver Lake would cost around $204,000. Some of the Council, like Nancy Whitten, were willing to throw their

immediate support to the Lower Commons, but others like Tom Vance wanted more information from staff reports and community input. City Manager Ben Yacizi was also adamant about taking more time in the process. “Our plate is full,” he said. “We’re working on the community center. We’re trying to get the budget ready, we’re working on construction projects. This is not the way we operate here. Give us some time to work on the issue.” Yacizi said it would be more realistic to place the garden in the 2013-2014 plan. James, who also supports looking at constructing a community garden at the Southeast Eighth Street Park, promised the committee that Sammamish residents will eventually have a place to jointly grow crops. “It’s not if we’re going to have a community garden, it’s where,” he said. “The question becomes where would be the best place to have it?”

The following information was compiled from police reports: A short disagreement in the Costco parking lot turned into a minor assault May 27 when two men met again at the store’s restroom. The person who began the confrontation in the parking lot called the other a “crazy white person.” The man responded, “Why don’t you say that to my face?” The man who made the racist comment pushed the other and grabbed for his throat. A Costco employee witnessed the incident and told the man to leave.

Mysterious robbery A Sammamish woman called police June 21 to report someone broke into her house while she was out. The woman had left her rear sliding glass door open and when she returned to her home in the 2400 block of Sahalee Way she was missing a laptop and a pair of binoculars. Thieves left jewelry and other valuable crystal and silver items.

Graffiti The Issaquah Highland’s Homeowners Association reported that several businesses in the area were tagged with miscellaneous writing, much of which referred to dancing. An officer documented the tagging June 8.

POLICE BLOTTER Drunk & confused Police were called when a man tried to break into an apartment in the 23400 block of Southeast Black Nugget Road at about 4 a.m. June 24. Police said

the man, who had been drinking, thought he was at his own apartment and they escorted him to his own home.

School vandalized The walkway connected to the portables at Sammantha Smith Elementary was damaged June 11 after someone ripped the antislip material off the ground

overnight. Damages were estimated at $200.

Couch in the road A dark grey couch was thrown in the roadway at Northeast Federal Drive and Highlands Drive Northeast. By time police arrived, someone had moved it off the roadway. Public Works removed it June 12.

Hips and knees are replaceable because time spent missing out on life isn’t. What’s the one thing people who have had joint-replacement surgery say? “I wish I’d done it sooner.” That’s because it didn’t take long to get back to doing things they’d given up due to the pain. If you’ve put part of your life on hold, then come to a free surgeon-led seminar at Swedish — the place that does the most joint replacements in the state.

HEALTH CARE Supreme Court decision forces us to face issue

T

he U.S. Supreme Court’s upholding of most of President Obama’s health-care law doesn’t end the discussion of health care in this country. Fixing the system has a long way to go. The court’s 5-4 decision was somewhat of a surprise. Conservatives had argued that Congress could not use the concept of interstate commerce to force everyone to buy health insurance. The court’s majority decision essentially agreed with that. However, Chief Justice John Roberts and the four liberals on the court said the government’s move amounted to a tax – and that is something well within the power of Congress. People still won’t have to buy health insurance, but they will face a tax liability if they don’t. As much as the health-care debate has centered on legal arguments, the fact remains that our health system is flawed. The new law will fix some of that, but we still have a long, long way to go. Most Americans have health coverage provided by large employers. They won’t see major changes. The real impact is for the poor. There are 32 million people in this country who are shut out from having health care. Either they are too poor to afford it or they are so sick that a private insurance company won’t provide them coverage. The law will change much of that, by expanding Medicaid – the federal/state program that helps the poor – and by making Health Benefit Exchanges available where people can compare costs and benefits of health insurance programs. However, these improvements come at a cost – or at least a concern. Making sure all people have health insurance means more people will be seeing physicians. Today, there are not enough doctors to treat all these new, potential patients. The health-care debate will continue – it is, after all, a presidential election year. But if it’s done nothing else, the Supreme Court’s decision has forced politicians and the public to face this issue. That, at least, is a start.

A very special presentation BY NINA MILLIGAN

“The Key to Issaquah Highlands” is awarded every year to a special resident of Issaquah Highlands who has made lasting contributions to our community. The Issaquah Highlands are blessed with many residents who volunteer countless hours, so many that we could give an entire ring of keys each year. Still one resident stood out this year: T.K. Panni. I had the honor of presenting the key to T.K on Saturday at Highlands Day. Let me tell you a little about the many ways T.K. has selflessly left his lasting marks on this community. He moved to the Highlands in 2004 as one of the first in his neighborhood of live-work townhomes on Park Drive. Immediately he began his volunteering, first as his neighborhood’s voting member. From there, T.K. served the Issaquah Highlands Community Association (IHCA) as a member of the board of directors, even serving as treasurer for a term, and as a member of the finance committee and the architectural review committee. His integrity and tireless work during this service benefited all homeowners immensely. Last fall, having earned the utmost trust in the community, T.K. was chosen to chair the finance sub-committee for the IHCA transition from the developer to the Home Owners Association. This was a monumental task, handled with T.K.’s usual grace and diplomacy. Beyond serving the homeowners’ groups, T.K. also served on the community development committee. As a committee of the Highlands Council, a communitywide nonprofit organization, the CDC is tasked with building community for all Highlands neighbors and with Issaquah on the whole. But perhaps most cherished are T.K.’s contributions in

Nina Milligan, left, awards T.K. Panni the key of the Issaquah Highlands. CELESTE GRACEY, ISSAQUAH & SAMMAMISH REPORTER the city of Issaquah Community Gardens located in the Issaquah Highlands. As a founding member of the Highlands garden committee, T.K. helped coordinate the building of the first garden in 2006 and the extension garden in 2011, with both together providing over 70 beds to the city of Issaquah’s residents. T.K. also helped build community gardens in other locations in Issaquah. As a fellow gardener, I have enjoyed his advice, encouragement, and a seedling or two. T.K. is truly our Johnny Appleseed. T.K. has shared with me his garden produce, his expertise, his heart and soul. You won’t find another like T.K. We are very lucky to have him in our community. Nina Milligan is a resident of Issaquah.

Dog enthusiasts Bark For Life with relay BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Dogs and dog-lovers from around the Eastside came to the Issaquah Highlands Bark Park on Saturday for Bark for Life, an American Cancer Society event to raise money for awareness and research of the disease. Many of the event-goers had a pet that had previously been stricken with cancer, including Kelly Hinderberger of Bellevue, who was on hand with her dog Charlie to honor a previous pet that passed from cancer. “It was pretty tough,” Hinderberger said. “We thought this would be a nice way to remember our old dog and start a new tradition.” Along with exercise stations and plenty of room to roam, the event featured a demonstration from the King County Sheriff ’s Department’s K-9 Unit, a “smooch booth” for dogs, booths and vendors with dog treats and foods, clothing and even specialized dog-friendly recreation like hikes and water sports. One of the local businesses displaying their services was Loving & Gentle Dog Grooming, which specializes in small dog care. Owner Rebecca began in the dog grooming industry 35 years ago as a teenager and has been putting her passion for canines to work ever since. A small dog owner herself, Rebecca’s home-based

Luminita Sarbu, the veterinary oncology specialist that has helped treat Tully, said events such as Bark for Life are important for both pets and pet owners. “It’s important as pet owners to educate ourselves and know there is a lot we can do for our dogs,” Sarbu said. “Events like this are great to let people know that this happens to pets as well and when it does, we have options.” The event was the first in the Highlands, but one that event chair and local resident Stephanie Quam believes will become an annual happening. She and her 11-year-old dog Otis spearheaded the event after doing the same last year at Bark for Life in Renton. “I wanted to bring it here because everyone around here is so passionate about pets,” Quam said. “I love dogs so much, they are my passion. Everyone has been touched by cancer and I try to find things Otis and I can do together.” According to the event’s website, over $1,400 was raised, 100 percent of which goes to the American Cancer Society.

Goals for 2013

Issaquah’s top 15 Council’s top 5 budgetary goals:

Issaquah City Council members set Klahanie and fixing up Lake Sammamish State Park as top goals for next year cgracey@issaquahreporter.com

Relocating Issaquah’s skate park, deciding what to do with Klahanie and partnering to help Lake Sammamish State Park topped the list of projects Issaquah city councilmembers hope to tackle next year. Following a retreat in early June, the council ratified 15 goals June 21. What didn’t make the goal sheet stood out as much as what did. Last year, the council put heavy emphasis on getting the Together Center to open a human services campus in Issaquah. The campus would provide a combined location for several nonprofits. The center still has $1 million in city funds at its disposal next year – if it can make the project work

by June 2013. However, it didn’t make the list of projects on which councilmembers wanted to focus. One goal with unanimous support was to partner with the state parks department to help Lake Sammamish park. That also was a goal last year. The same day the council also approved a memorandum of understanding that sets the groundwork for partnering with state parks to raise money, garner community support and consider having the park transferred to the city, although that’s not necessarily the goal. Also, the city has long struggled with the location of its skate park, which attracts teen drug use. The council hopes to tear down the current park and build one in a more visible location.

Second tier budgetary goals: Develop plan to improve traffic intersections at Front and Gilman and Front and Sunset Find funding for bus routes 200 and 928, modify or expand routes Develop citywide bike and pedestrian plan Become a Five-Star city Fireworks in July 2013

Top 5 goals that don’t have a budget line: Improve use of Lake Sammamish State Park Regional center designation in 2013 Public lands inventory Define a plan to enhance Rainier Trail Put financial information in agenda bills

Law means money for Swedish BY CELESTE GRACEY CGRACEY@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Even as the Swedish Issaquah Hospital is trying to interpret how the Affordable Care Act will impact its services, it’s celebrating the Supreme Court decision not to toss the law out altogether. Since it was founded 102 years ago, the non-profit hospital has sought to serve the community as a whole, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay, said John Milne, vice president of Swedish medical affairs. “In many ways, this is really just an extension of the mission we’ve had as an organization.” If more patients had access to regular physicians, then the hospital would likely see fewer patients in the emergency room, he said. Since Swedish doesn’t turn patients away, each year the hospital racks in over $100 million in uncompensated care. up of athletes from Eastlake High School in Sammamish.

AROUND TOWN No evidence in student accusation The Lake Washington School District’s investigation into alleged inappropriate texting between the Lake Washington High School girls’ softball head coach Troy Hennum and a LWHS female student athlete found no evidence of an inappropriate relationship between the two. Hennum will face no punitive action from the district and will be allowed to apply to coach for the team next season, said Kathryn Reith, communications director for the school district. Hennum also coaches a select softball team made

If all patients had coverage, the hospital would at least get some reimbursement from federal programs, although it may not cover the total costs. While Swedish doesn’t intend to change its patient to doctor ratios when the law goes into effect, it’s focusing on taking on so many new patients at once. “It’s a process for us having to work smarter, not necessarily harder with staff,” Milne said. The hospital already has put forward a number of programs and ideas for how to best use the staff it has. When the Issaquah hospital opened, it touted the efficiency of its emergency rooms. The Supreme Court did strike down a part of the law, which could impact Medicaid coverage in some states.

Skyline, Eastside Catholic, Eastlake send swimmers to Olympic Trials BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@BELLEVUEREPORTER.COM

Four preps with ties to the area competed in the U.S. Olympic Swim and Dive Trials in Omaha, Neb. as Ethan Hallowell, Edward Kim, Andie Taylor and Katie Kinnear were on hand with the nation’s best with spots in London on the line. An eight-time prep champ at Eastside Catholic, Hallowell, now at Stanford University, made the field in the 50 meter freestyle after swimming with the Cardinal during the collegiate season as a freshman. Kim, a 16-year-old student at Eastlake and member of the Bellevue Club Swim Team, qualified at the Western Region Section in the 100 meter freestyle after adding two more 4A state championships during the high school season to bring his total to four. 2010 Skyline graduate Andie Taylor,

who captured seven individual state championships during her time as a Spartan (and also owns three individual school records and one state record) and also a student at Stanford, swam the standard in the 400 individual medley, 400 freestyle and 200 butterfly to make her way to Omaha. Kinnear, who also brought her

Andie Taylor individual state championship total to seven at the 2011 state meet, made the field in the 100 butterfly, 200 butterfly, 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke. She will attend UCLA in the fall. None of the four made it out of their heat in their respective events. The U.S. Olympic Swim and Dive Trials concluded on July 2.

Area softball team booted from tourney one win from title game Rain delays and scheduling conflicts resulted in a pair of District 9 softball teams, including the Eastlake-Sammamish squad, being disqualified from a tournament after neither could field a team of nine for the title game. The tournament, which was delayed two days for rain, included five teams playing for one spot at state. After winning each of its first three games, Eastlake-Sammamish was the only remaining unbeaten team and was slated to face a team comprised of Bellevue Thunderbird, Bellevue West and Mercer Island Little Leaguers in the finals. But several players from each team were also committed to the National Softball Association state tournament, which began the same day. District 9, which made an effort before the tournament to ensure players would be able to participate with both organizations (NSA is a separate softball entity from Little League International), would not reschedule the championship game and instead ruled that both squads were disqualified. “Even if it was a double-forfeit, we still would have won the tournament because they (BellevueMercer Island) would have been eliminated,” Eastlake-Sammamish coach Andy Holderness said. District 9 officials declined comment and Little League International Vice President of Communications Lance VanAuken said there is no specific rule outlining the process when neither team can play a scheduled tournament game. He also said the idea of a double-forfeit was not practical because, “There wouldn’t have been any punishment.”
