Traffic bugging you? This blog is for you Residents concerned about the amount or speed of traffic in their neighborhood now have a new avenue for sharing – a traffic safety blog launched by the city called “Streets are for Everyone” (S.A.F.E.). In a survey conducted last August,

nearly 80 percent of respondents said they would like the ability to post comments and ask questions about projects online. S.A.F.E. facilitates this in a real-time, collaborative environment. Residents still can call or email the city’s Neighborhood Traffic Safety Services

division, but S.A.F.E offers a public forum for comments about neighborhood traffic projects and issues, reduce vehicle speeds, manage residential parking conditions and address neighborhood traffic issues. Initially, the blog included stories about why “Children at Play” signs are

It’s party time for Bellevue’s new residents Event to welcome Eastgate, Horizon View, Tamara Hills The city is throwing a “One City” party on Thursday, July 26, to celebrate the annexation of three unincorporated neighborhoods in South Bellevue – Eastgate, Tamara Hills and Horizon View, and the expected annexation of a fourth, Hilltop. From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the South Bellevue Community Center (14509 SE Newport Way), the event will combine food, fun and festive activities with information about city services. The community center will showcase a sampling of its recreational and fitness classes, such as zumba, tai chi, belly dancing, spinning and rock climbing.

Dr. Mark Dedomenico never slows down. Many might think that after being one of the inventors of coronary bypass surgery he would rest on his laurels, take it a little easy. But that’s not how Dr. Dedomenico works. Not

only was he passionate about fixing the human heart and body, but also he wanted to understand and root out the reasons people ended up on his operating table. So, 21 years ago he began to focus on diet and exercise with the 20/20 Lifestyles program, which

The Bel-Red corridor is set to be the next big growth area in the city. The city is attempting to make sure the area remains viable for businesses between now and when big redevelopment is completed in the later half of the next decade. Redevelopment of the area, which sits between Interstate 405, State Route 520, Bel-Red Road and 156th Avenue Northeast, isn’t expected to be completed until the later half of the next decade. It is expected to feature a potential centerpiece development that includes housing, office, transit and entertainment options over the next 15 years. Today, the area is a mix of light-industrial; medical offices; research and development businesses; retail; manufacturing and sports facilities among others. However, zoning changes that came when the Bel-Red Plan was completed in 2009 emphasize integration with East SEE BEL-RED, 8

This time toll vendor pays WSDOT to receive settlement of $6.4 million for toll delays The Washington State Department of Transportation will receive a $6.4 million settlement from a toll vendor to pay for costs related to delays in the starting of tolling on State Route 520 last year. In the agreement, WSDOT will recoup $2.4 million by reducing monthly operational payments to Electronic Transaction Consultants, the toll company that was recommended by a panel of experts last year. WSDOT also receives a license for ETC’s software as part of the settlement. The royalty-free license provides access to ETC’s toll-system code, related software and back-

ground documents necessary to operate the statewide tolling customer service center and manage the toll-accounting system. Valued by an independent consultant at $4 million, the license provides WSDOT some insurance outside its contract with ETC. Tolling was projected to start in mid2012, but the delays pushed the initial date back to Dec. 29. “This agreement ensures the state and taxpayer are compensated while avoiding what could have been significant litigation costs,” WSDOT Toll Division Director Craig Stone said. “Costs will be recovered and bridge toll payers will be held harmless.”

Fire destroys home, displaces residents A concerned neighbor called 911 on July 13 reporting popping noises and smoke coming from a house at the 4000 block of 140th Avenue SE. Bellevue firefighters arrived in five minutes to find heavy black smoke and flames coming from the north side of the single family home. The home owner and his son left the single story home around 10:30 a.m. after watching the lighting storm from his front yard. Fire crews arrived at 11:12 a.m. The first crews to enter the home reported heavy smoke at knee level with heavy heat

throughout. They located and quickly extinguished the fire confining it to a small office. Bellevue fire investigators believe an electrical failure in the office to be the cause and origin of the fire. The home did have smoke detectors, and it is unknown if the detectors were working at the time of the fire. The value of the structure and its contents is estimated at $250,000. The home is a total loss, displacing three residents. The owner is insured. There were no injuries.

A WINE WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT

Bellevue’s newest wine store, Total Wine and More came up a hair short of setting a world record last week. The attempt made July 12 was to set a record for the most bottles of wine being uncorked simultaneously. Representatives from the Guinness book were on hand to validate the count. The final count was 301, just short of the previous record of 308, which was set at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. The event, designed to help the new store make

a splash with its first location in Washington, was no simple task. Participants had only 30 seconds to uncork the wine, or risk being disqualified.

If you’re happy with your dentures, don’t read this!

The ClearChoice team of specialists provides 21st century solutions to people struggling with dentures or bad teeth.

WHY SUFFER WITH DENTURES? For centuries, removable false teeth, or dentures, have been used to replace missing teeth. But denture-wearers report that many undesirable side effects come along with this less-than-ideal solution: Dentures are uncomfortable to wear and often slip or click; they can cause bad breath, and require ongoing and inconvenient maintenance; they often result in a weak bite, a fakelooking smile and an overly active gagging reflex. Care and comfort aside, those with dentures also are prevented from eating many of the foods and participating in many of the activities they enjoy. With today’s science, there’s simply no reason for anyone to struggle with dentures. In fact, many of the problems denture wearers struggle with can be solved in just one day* with the help of your ClearChoice team of dental implant professionals.

Denture wearers tend to struggle with: • Shame or embarrassment when smiling • Feeling limited in social situations • Maintaining a fully active lifestyle • Appearing older due to bone loss • Health issues related to their teeth

THE SOLUTION IS DENTAL IMPLANTS. Dental implants provide far better results than do dentures, because implants can prevent potential bone loss. Because they’re anchored into the jawbone, the fusion of the implant and bone provides stability, just as the natural teeth did. Implants perform and are cared for just like natural teeth! If you’re missing some or all of your teeth, dental implants can stimulate the bone, protect against atrophy and help preserve your natural facial features.

Unlike dentures, dental implants are fixed in place, perform like your natural teeth, and can last a lifetime! CHOOSE A BETTER LIFE TODAY. Most people who choose dental implants report the decision to be life changing. Not only do dental implants look great and boost your confidence, but they can also restore you to the active lifestyle you’ve been missing. Swim, ski, laugh and sing. Give business presentations. Eat what you like. Do it all without worrying about how your smile looks, or that your teeth will slip or fall out!

I had friends who had dentures, so knowing what they had to deal with, I just refused to go down that road. ClearChoice was absolutely the best option for me! — James, ClearChoice patient

WHY TRUST CLEARCHOICE? In addition to being the No. 1 provider of dental implants, ClearChoice has industryleading customer satisfaction and success rates. In fact, an independent study† of thousands of patients showed that those who chose ClearChoice would overwhelmingly recommend ClearChoice to others.

Study finds Bellevue is immigration trend-setter With a large, skilled, Asian immigrant population that contributes to its success as a high-tech center, Bellevue is apparently at the vanguard of a national trend. The latest evidence is a new report that shows Asians are now the fastest growing immigrant group in the U.S. In “The Rise of Asian Americans,” a study released June 19, and conducted by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center, concluded that the influx of Asians – the most educated and highest-earning population in the U.S. – is helping the country’s economy. In Bellevue, Asians account for 28 percent of the city’s population, the highest share of any city in the state. A significant number work for tech companies in Downtown Bellevue, including Microsoft and Expedia. From 2000 to 2010, the number of Asians in Bellevue increased by 77 percent, to 33,659, making it the city’s fastest-growing racial group. Bellevue’s diverse, high-powered workforce, will continue to attract international businesses. Mayor Conrad Lee, who was born in China, hailed the Pew study for acknowledging the positive impact the country’s growing immigrant population has. “There is no doubt that our diversity makes our city stronger,” Lee said, noting

Debadutta Dash, a service culture trainer and sales manager with the Westin Hotel in Bellevue, is a member of the Washington State Commission on Asian and Pacific-American Affairs. Dash was the keynote speaker at a naturalization ceremony hosted by the city of Bellevue in September 2011.

New gym to open at Marymoor Park New outdoor exercise equipment will soon be available for use by parents when their children play right next door in a playground area at King County’s Marymoor Park.

A dedication ceremony for the new exercise equipment at Marymoor is scheduled for Saturday, July 21, from 10

According to the Pew report, the bulk of Asians in the U.S. come from China, India, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and Vietnam. Chinese residents have made up the largest portion of the Asian population in Bellevue, but over the past decade Indians have been the fastest-growing group. Fifteen percent of the state’s Indian population lives in Bellevue. In 2009, the government of India gave Bellevue a statue of Mahatma Gandhi, which stands outside the Bellevue Regional Library, to honor the people of the city where many Indian nationals have settled and found success. The Pew study reported that Asians recently nudged Hispanics from the top spot for immigration. In 2010, about 36 percent of new immigrants were Asian, compared to 31 percent who were Hispanic. Consistent with the scenario in Bellevue, the study noted, “Recent Asian immigrants are about three times as likely as recent immigrants from other parts of the world to receive their green cards – or permanent resident status – on the basis of employer rather than family sponsorship.”

GUM DISEASE LINKED TO OBESITY

According to analysis of data involving nearly 37,000 men in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, a potential link exists between obesity and gingivitis and periodontitis. The study involved men who did not have gum disease at the beginning of the study. Every two years, the men were asked to report their weight, hip and waist circumferences, and gum disease status. At the end of 16 years, a significant relationship was found between obesity and gum disease, even after accounting for variables such as smoking, activity level, etc. This study confirms a previous study that showed the same link. Researchers theorize that the worse the body’s insulin resistance (which is linked with obesity), the higher the prevalence of gum disease. As the evidence accumulates that gum disease is related to disease in other parts of the body, everyone has good reason to brush, floss, and schedule regular dental exams. At NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, we strive to increase dental awareness and stress the importance of regular dental care. Our emphasis on preventive dentistry is for the whole family. We care about your wellbeing. For gentle, compassionate dental care, call 425.641.4111 to schedule an appointment.

A little bird told us

Re-elect Judge Doug North

e’re pretty sure Kathlyn Ehl never will forget about Twitter. The policy assistant to gubernatorial candiate Rob McKenna’s campaign resigned from that job this week after two of her past postings on the socialnetwork site appeared to criticize Asians and the elderly. We don’t want to repeat her slam to both groups here, but let’s just say that they were insensitive and cruel. McKenna called them “insensitive and wrong.” It’s easy to forget that things posted on the web can be seen by anyone and that they can stay there forever. Ehl has apologized and she was right to resign.

Judge Doug North deserves to be re-elected to the King County Superior Court. North has been an active and important member of the court for the past 12 years. He has been rated as either “Excellent” or “Very Good” by the vast majority of attorneys appearing before him and rated as “Outstanding” by the Municipal League of King County. He is endorsed by more than 100 judges statewide. When illness temporarily sidelined him, his fellow judges on the King County Superior Court bench immediately stepped up to campaign for him because he is such a highly respected and valued colleague.

Go Tacoma

A

website, Moving.com, has ranked Tacoma as one of the top “10 Best Cities for Millenials,” based on affordable housing, low unemployment and access to nearby attractions and education. Wow, we say. But wait. Before you pack up the moving van, the site also says that the metropolitan area of Tacoma includes Bellevue and Seattle. Well, of course.

Dubious achievement

A

new study shows that Seattle is the fourth-mostcongested city in North America. The Tom Tom traffic-data company says January snowstorms, the start of tolling on the 520 bridge and general slowdowns contributed to the ranking. Wonder how high the area will climb in the rankings if we get a new sports stadium in Seattle’s Sodo district?

When did alien blobs get to be so cute? N

ewborn babies are ugly. This is a truth I came to terms with long ago. Now I know this little rant is going to tick off a lot of people - especially the new parents currently sitting on their couch, holding said ugly newborn in their arms, crying because they’re so exhausted from burping, bathing and wiping it down. Don’t take it personally. They all look that way. Whether we like it or not, we come in to this world looking like wrinkly, naked mole rats. And we go out, looking more Keegan Prosser or less, the same. Sure, these little mole rats eventually start looking a bit like the parents who made them, but for the better part of the first six months they’re pink and wrinkly - and dare I say it? A little bit alien-like. So imagine the horror I experienced when my brother and his wife told me in December that they were expecting their first child. My first thought: How exciting! My second thought: God, I hope this kid is cute. Flash forward to July. I’m hanging out with some friends last Friday night, and I get a text from my

brother: “Megan’s water broke; we’re going to the hospital.” First thought: What?! Second thought: It’s too early. Third thought: Again. God, I hope this kid is cute. As it so happens, my brother’s baby boy happens to be the cutest dang thing I’ve ever seen. Perfect complexion, adorable pouty lips, the most beautiful blue eyes I’ve ever seen. Oh and did I mention his skin? The softest! He’s literally the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen. And I’m not just saying that because I am his auntie (Who am I kidding? That’s totally the reason). Having said this, the whole “fear of ugly babies” fiasco has helped me come to terms with a new truth: Sure, they look like little blobs - but they’re your little blobs. And I think that’s probably the coolest feeling in the world. So congrats to my brother and his lady for creating the least alien-looking blob I’ve ever encountered. And to my nephew: I can’t wait for you to be the coolest little kiddo in the world. Oh, and did I mention that we’re birthday twins? BEST. PRESENT. EVER.

Habib impressive I have served on the Bellevue College Foundation Board and also in Bellevue Rotary with Cyrus Habib for the past two years. I am constantly impressed with Cyrus’s ability to get to the heart of the matter and get things done. Cyrus is deeply rooted in the Eastside, he lives and works here, and based on this I will be supporting him for state representative in my district. I am an independent voter who has voted for both Republicans and Democrats, and I ask for your support for Cyrus Habib for state representative in the 48th legislative district.

Why the silence? The silence coming from the American media is deafening in regards to the investigation of Barclays Bank and others. It is very sad that unless there is an angle involving violence, sex, race, or civil rights, the media simply has no interest in informing the public.

Can you make out my Pacific Northwest accent? O

verheard conversation in a coffee shop: MAN: “Hey, where are you from? I recognize your accent.” WOMAN: “Accent? I don’t have an accent.” MAN: “Yea, you do. You’re from the Pacific Northwest. Am I right?” WOMAN: “Well, yea. But there is no Pacific Northwest accent.” MAN: “Wrong-o. In fact, your regional dialect Pat Cashman tells me you’re from Washington state.” WOMAN: “That doesn’t take a genius. We’re in Washington state.” MAN: “I’m narrowing it down. I would say you’re from Bellevue.”

WOMAN: “Oh, come on!” MAN: “And if I’m not mistaken, you have a distinctly Crossroadsian accent.” WOMAN: “Wrong. I live in the Overlake area.” MAN: “Really? I could have sworn.” The preceding dialogue was just made up. But there are people who insist that not only is there a Washington State dialect, but also eagle-eared folks even believe they can tell what town you’re from around here. Of course, there are words that are distinctly Northwestern, like geoduck. People elsewhere in the country not only don’t know how to pronounce it, they don’t even know what one is. True story: A local TV news director arrived here from the East Coast some years ago, and when he saw a reporter holding a geoduck during the 5 o’clock news – and it was squirting – he declared the video

pornographic and threatened to fire the reporter on the spot. For the uninitiated – like that news director – geoduck is pronounced “gooeyduck.” It’s not a duck at all, but a type of clam with a long neck that does arguably look like a part of the male anatomy. (So maybe in his follow up story, the TV reporter satisfied the sputtering news director by putting a pair of jockey shorts over the offensive bi-valve.) To be fair, geoducks are pretty much unknown except in this part of the world where they are found. So much for today’s geography (gooey-graphy) lesson. Other expressions such as black ice, silver thaw and tule fish are a cipher to people living in other parts of the U.S., too. And our many Native American words like Puyallup, Tillicum and Nooksack undoubtedly raise eyebrows back east. But back to the dialect thing. Those of us born and bred in these parts are certain we can recognize New York City phonics when we hear it – along with Boston, Minnesota and Maine dialect differences. And we’re quick to spot a Southern drawl. But when it comes to our neck of the woods, we generally don’t think we have a particularly notable dialect. We might be

wrong. My cousins back in the Chicago area used to find our West Coast pronunciations quite amusing – although maybe it was just my particular family’s accent, and nothing to do with our region. We found our cousin’s pronunciation of words like “college” as “CAL-lage” amusing – not to mention their mortifying pronunciations of “Warsh-ington” and “Ory-gone.” But they pointed out how we routinely said things like “rully” for “really” – as in “That corndog was rully, rully good.” In fact, they said, we were also pronouncing the word “good” weirdly – saying “gyood.” They also pointed out that we said “pen” for “pin,” “malk” for “milk” – and “pitcher” for “picture.” They also insisted that “leg” and “egg” should not rhyme. They also didn’t like the way we pronounced “aunt,” “route,” “caramel,” “data” and “crayon.” We never liked those cousins much. But at least we agreed on how to pronounce “Humptulips.”

Shuttle from Eastside to Woodland Park Zoo this summer BY MARY JEAN SPADAFORA Bellevue Reporter

Woodland Park Zoo is offering shuttle services to and from the Eastside for the second year in a row this summer. Now until Sept. 2, shuttles will leave from Crossroads Mall in Bellevue and Woodland Park Zoo every 45 minutes from 9:15 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The non-profit shuttle service began in June 2011 in an effort to provide a green, cost-saving way for Eastsiders to connect with zoo amenities. Shuttles are operated

by Standard Parking and carry 23-25 passengers. Storage for strollers, car seats, seat belts and DVD systems are provided. “Last year was our pilot program and it was a huge success in our eyes,” said Woodland Park Zoo spokeswoman Jennifer Larson. “We’re on track to probably match what we did last year.” Tickets for the shuttle are purchased before guests leave the zoo at ZooStore South. To ride the shuttle, guests ages 13 and over pay $2. Children ages 12 and under ride free. Reservations are not required. The Crossroads departure location is

Symetra employees give back to community More than 61 Eastside Symetra employees volunteered at two Bellevue organizations in June. Some 40 employees helped sort donations at the Hopelink food bank on June 26-27. Another 21 volunteers spread bark on canine walking trails and painted parking lot curbs at the Humane Society on June 29.

They were part of more than than 460 Symetra employees across the Puget Sound region — and across the country — who participated in the company’s fourthannual “Symetra Week of Service.” In all, The Bellevue contingent contributed 120 hours of help to the two local organizations.

Sailing back in time In this photograph, Eugene Sherman (center, with hat) takes family and friends out sailing on Lake Washington. Sherman owned the Compass Factory, producer of the Dirigo compasses that shipped worldwide. He built this ketch on his company’s site in Bellevue. He also was a skilled violin maker. Smaller sailboats, like the one in the background, were plentiful on the lake. This article is an excerpt from Lake Washington: The East Side, distributed by Arcadia Publishing.

Hilltop, the last unincorporated island in Bellevue, will become part of the city by the end of the month after the City Council unanimously approved its annexation Monday, July 16. Hilltop is 63 acres, with 40 houses and 101 residents in its boundaries. Property owners representing more than 75 percent of the assessed value of Hilltop submitted petitions for annexation on May 23 of this year, shortly after the council approved an agreement with Hilltop residents. Three other areas south of Interstate 90 – Eastgate, Horizon View and Tamara Hills – were annexed on June 1.

The Eastside German Language School is moving to a new location at East Shore Unitarian Church, 12700 SE 32nd St., Bellevue. The school teaches German language classes to people from preschool to adult. More information is available at www.egls.us or 253-859 8309.

Safeco employees help kids

Redmond based Friends of Youth was selected as the recipient of a $15,000 grant from Safeco Insurance Foundation July 17. The money awarded to Friends of Youth will go towards The Landing, a King County young adult shelter located at the Bellevue YMCA. To learn more about Friends of Youth, visit www.friendsofyouth.org.

Safeco volunteers helped Youth Eastside Services (YES) assemble summer camp kits June 21 for needy youth participating in the YES Explorers Therapeutic Summer Camp Program. The camp enables kids, who receive school-based counseling, to continue receiving treatment in summer and have a fun camp experience. “These kids are low income, and many would not have any summer activities if not for this camp,” explained Debbi Halela, director of youth and family counseling services at YES. The kits include such items as a tote bag, beach towel, sunscreen and journal. Items were donated by business and individuals in the community.

Crossroads Park inflated with fun

Charity gets $15,000 grant

Bellevue Parks and Community Services plans to create an interactive fun zone for Bellevue youth this summer in Crossroads Park Inflatable Fun in August. Inflatable activities will take over the park for three Wednesdays in a row in an effort to provide children ages three and up with a safe and fun way to burn off some energy. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Inflatable Fun will be open Aug. 1, Aug. 8 and Aug. 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 16140 NE Eighth St. Cash only day of event. $1-2 per activity. Groups can pre-purchase wristbands for $10 each. $1 per ticket or $15 per wristband

The Seattle Chapter of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA and the members of Temple B’nai Torah in Bellevue will observe the Muslim fast of Ramadan and the Jewish fast of Tisha B’av on July 29. Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community plan to offer evening congregational prayers at the Synagogue and plan to share a presentation on the importance of Ramadan the day of the event. Holy Quran and Torah exhibitions will be held. The program starts at 7 p.m. at Temple B’nai Torah, 1527 NE Fourth St, Bellevue.

Link light-rail. The result is that many of the businesses now there no longer will be allowed when development begins. Under city code, current uses are allowed to keep the doors open, but new businesses that don’t fit the new zoning code are not allowed in. At the Monday meeting, staff and councilmembers mulled extending a grace period where new businesses can inhabit existing

buildings under old zoning code to make sure the area doesn’t turn empty while it waits for redevelopment. Currently, a business under the old zoning has 12 months to fill a vacant building. For the last decade, the Bel-Red area has been more than healthy. It features lower vacancy rates in retail, office and industrial buildings than the average throughout the city, according to city figures. No action was taken, and councilmembers disagreed on a solution. Some wanted to leave the plan alone, while others wanted to extend the grace period to 24 or 36 months to encourage businesses to invest in the area.

Peggy Gerber loved the view. After spending much of her life in Indiana and Texas, she wanted something different. She visited Puget Sound a few times to see family and it was evident this was the place for her. Only one problem: Gerber had three kids to put through school back in Indiana. She made a pact: when the youngest graduates from high school, she is out of there. That happened last year and Gerber packed up everything she could fit into a 6 x 10 trailer, grabbed the family dog and headed west. When someone settles into a new area there are a lot of ways one becomes entrenched in the community. Gerber, a new resident of North Bend, took a unique outlet. She started a business. She purchased a franchise of

Welcome Mat, a company that tries to connect new residents with local businesses through mailing offers. She invested $50,000 to make the move and the franchise purchase happen, but the former executive said the business was primarily a means to enter the market. “It’s a way to get me here; it’s something I know I can do,” she said. Gerber isn’t bothered by the extra workload that comes with small business ownership, as she regularly put in 60 hours a week at her former job. Her franchise territory covers much of the Eastside, including Bellevue, Issaquah and Redmond. The company obtains information such as change of addresses at banks, cable companies, etc., and then sends mailers with offers, such as discounts at restaurants, to the new residents. “What really makes this successful is the new person who moves to

a community is nobody’s customer,” Gerber said. Businesses pay approximately $1 per piece of mail sent out. They choose which zip codes to target. Stan Parente salon in downtown Bellevue is preparing to send out mailers with Welcome Mat later this summer. Aaron Parente, assistant to the owner, said the Bellevue Way salon recently received a big renovation and business is really starting to pick up. Now is the time to make a push for new customers, and Parente thinks going after new residents will help build regular customers, rather than the one-off visitors that often come from daily deal promotions. “We want to get a new long-time client in and build a relationship,” Parente said.

Police volunteers work to improve disabled parking one photo at a time By Mary Jean Spadafora Bellevue Reporter

With the help of volunteers, the Bellevue Police Department is working to identify local businesses in violation of federal parking codes in an effort to improve parking for people with disabilities. Since the program was reinstated by the department in January, about 150 businesses have been identified as lacking the proper amount of disabled parking stalls or proper signage. “The number of stalls is set by the U.S. Justice Department and the State of Washington adopted that federal standard,” said BPD spokeswoman Officer Carla Iafrate. “[Volunteers] will note properties that do not have the correct signage and this is then followed up on.” Residents of Bellevue can now take photographs of business parking lots that do not comply with disabled parking standards. Photos are submitted through BPD’s online traffic service request form. In Washington state, businesses need at least one parking spot for people with disabilities for every 25 regular spots. Businesses in violation receive informational packets from the police department, followed by a second letter about a month

Volunteers and police are patrolling the city to make sure businesses provide enough parking spots for people with disabilities, like this one at the Best Buy location in Bellevue. Mary Jean Spadafora, Bellevue Reporter later setting a deadline for the business to be in compliance. If property owners do

not meet the deadline, they are fined $125. According to the 2010 U.S. Census,

approximately 10 percent of the in the Seattle-Bellevue metropolitan area have a disability. The department and volunteers first began using the disabled parking program in 2000, but due to staffing issues it became inactive. The program was again suggested to the department by parking violation volunteers who noticed many businesses lacked the correct number of spots or signs clearly marking disabled parking. Code compliance officers contact any businesses that have moved, removed or modified disabled parking stalls without obtaining required permits. The only costs incurred by the police department are printing and mailing costs of letters and information packets. Since volunteers began submitting pictures, 36 businesses installed new signage or added parking after receiving notification from the city. Residents who wish to report disabled parking violations at a Bellevue establishment can file an online traffic service request with the city at http://www.bellevuewa.gov/Traffic_Service_Request.htm.

Motivate your kid to be helpful W hen garbage day rolls around and you have a million other things on your mind, how do you motivate your child to lend a hand and take out the trash? Your request may be met with arguments, just ignored, or done only part way. You may not realize it, but you are in the middle of a power struggle. While your kids appear unwilling, their motivations are probably just different from yours. Understanding your child’s interests and accessing his or her motivations can help you recognize which household tasks are best for your child. Parents should identify a purpose when assigning chores and need to maintain realistic expectations for their children and be aware of each child’s capabilities. Patti SkeltonFollowing are some helpful guidelines: McGougan • Ages 2-3 — Pick up their toys, take laundry to laundry area, help feed pets. At this age, kids should be closely monitored and encouraged with praise. • Ages 4-5 — Clear the table, help prepare meals, put away some groceries. This is a good age for teaching, as these youngsters love time with adults. • Ages 6-8 — Vacuum, take out trash, fold and put away laundry. Kids this age are motivated to be independent.

CHORE WARS

YES is offering a Chore Wars! class to help parents encourage household cooperation through more effective communication. More information is available at YouthEastsideServices.org/classes or by calling 425747-4937.

• Ages 9-12 — Help wash the car, wash dishes, clean the bathroom, help with yard work. Kids in this age group have a lot going on and respond better when they know what is expected of them in advance. • Ages 13-18 — Most teenagers are capable of handling nearly any chore, though they may need some instruction. However, putting too much on the shoulders of these capable kids will leave them feeling overwhelmed. What do you do when your child refuses to cooperate? Be patient and listen. And remember, it’s important to establish a positive relationship with your child, no matter the age, so be sure you are acknowledging your child’s achievements through encouraging responses.

Patti Skelton-McGougan is executive director of Youth Eastside Services. For more information, call 425-7474937 or go to www.youtheastsideservices.org.

B

est of Bellevue 2012 or BOB was a smashing success this year with over 400 qualifying votes online and with paper ballots.

Former pro reinventing baseball

Sports Roundup

What’s happening in sports and recreation

Interlake, Newport softball players headed to Nationals

BY JOSH SUMAN Bellevue Reporter

Steve Goucher needed to find a way to stay upright. The continued stress on his back from repeatedly reaching down, up to one thousand times per session, to pick up baseballs while he put players through workouts, was becoming too much to bear. The former professional baseball player and Bellevue resident for the past decade knew there had to be a better way. But as he searched the marketplace for a device that would alleviate the wear on his back while hitting grounders and fly balls, Goucher couldn’t find a single piece of equipment that suited his needs. So he created his own. “It’s a pain in the neck to pick up balls all the time,” Goucher said. “I went to McClendon Hardware and found a plumbing fitting with an open end and it kind of went from there.” With that simple plumbing fitting, Goucher created the prototype for the Skipper Stick, a modified fungo bat (a bat designed for baseball coaches to more easily hit grounders and fly balls during practice) that can grab a ball off the ground with an easy jab and has already sold more than 1,000 units online. Goucher said the process was relatively simple, but got a drastic improvement when former television personality and avid baseball fan Bill Nye, the “Science Guy” added his touch. “He took out his pocket knife and basically cut some grooves into it,” Goucher said. “It worked a lot better.” Nye, who met Goucher through a mutual acquaintance and trained with him in preparation for a fantasy baseball camp run by the Mariners, has since partnered with Goucher on another invention designed to foster proper throwing technique and has informal plans for several more inventions tied to teaching the game to youngsters more efficiently. After obtaining a patent for the Skipper Stick’s signature baseballgrabbing fitting, Goucher began traveling to industry trade shows around the country, with no shortage of interest. “Once people see it and use it, it is kind of a no-brainer,” he said. “It’s so easy and so simple.” Using those connections as well as some he established during his time in the Atlanta Braves farm system, Goucher has put the Skipper Stick in the hands of Major League coaches from the Chicago White Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Yankees. He has also received positive reviews from Hall of Fame players George Brett and Gary Carter, only adding to the legitimacy

COURTESY PHOTO Interlake’s Carly Pim and Madelyn Shelby, an incoming freshman at Newport, are headed to Sioux Falls, SD, for the American Softball Association National Championship Tournament after their Washington Blaze 97 team won a pair of state titles with a combined record of 10-0. The Blaze 97 squad, which competes in the 14U division, outscored opponents 61-4 en route to a perfect record at the National Softball Association state title and followed that with another 5-0 mark at the ASA championship. Nearly 200 teams from around the country will compete for a national title, but it won’t be the first time Pim and Shelby find themselves on the main stage after both were part of the Bellevue-Mercer Island team that earned the host berth from District 9 to last year’s Junior Softball World Series in Kirkland. That team finished eighth among the top teams Little League softball teams from around the world and lost its final game to the eventual champ.

JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter of a product he hopes can become a mainstay similar to the batting donut. “If you get a guy like George Brett or Gary Carter to say they like it, it will take off sooner or later,” Goucher said. That process could accelerate soon, with the Skipper Stick already available on Amazon.com, JustBats. com and Sears.com and a handful of companies already in production of the product. That means the days of

coaches needing a player to stand by with a glove or bend down to retrieve fielded balls could be numbered. “We have a patent on a softball one too,” Goucher said, adding that coaches have shown great interest from that side of the diamond as well. “The piece on the end will last longer than the bat.” Josh Suman: 425-453-5045; jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

Two from Bellevue are headed to the Area Code Games, as Bellevue’s Jack Meggs and Interlake’s Austin Strother will play for the Royals, composed primarily of players from the Pacific Northwest. Meggs helped the Wolverines to a 1310 mark in 2012, including a win in the 3A KingCo Tournament. Strother led the Saints back to the 2A state playoffs and posted a 0.86 ERA in more than 50 innings on the mound. Both are members of the class of 2013. The showcase runs from August 5-10 at Blair Field in Long Beach, Calif. and includes eight regional teams from around the country with top players from each region.

REPORTER Q/A | US Soccer legend Tony Meola

Reporter: What do you remember about representing the US as part of the National Team? Meola: Certainly how much of an honor it is. That’s the pinnacle for most players, they want to get to the National Team. I had the opportunity to do it for a long time and I can remember every one of those experiences. Reporter: Can you talk about growth of the professional game and appeal of US soccer worldwide? July 20.ai

Event to raise money for college scholarships for local students

Tony Meola had a National Team career that spanned parts of three decades as he became a staple for the United States in international play during his career. COURTESY, US Soccer Meola: The pool of players now is just so much greater than it was in the past. A coach has so many resources to choose from. Reporter: What do you think of US Soccer’s newest modifications to its academy system? Meola: I think it’s a good idea. Those ideas have been around for a long time. The academy system, if I had one gripe it, would be that the kids can’t play in high school. I see so many negatives in that, not necessarily from a soccer standpoint. I have some issues with the way they can’t play AMhigh school, but I’m sure that part will sort itself out, whether it’s good

or bad. Reporter: Being a standout in three sports, I’m sure you have some strong feelings on specialization in youth sports. Meola: I’m completely against it. I think they should play as many sports as they can. I had a conversation recently with a coach telling me there aren’t many kids that play two sports. I told him, “There aren’t guys like me because of guys like you.” He was trying to convince my son to stick with baseball and I told him that isn’t what he wants. We agreed to disagree.

One of the pioneers of bringing American soccer to an international level and establishing the legitimacy of the MLS, Tony Meola is in the pantheon of US soccer history. A three-sport star as a prep in his home town of Kearny, NJ, Meola spent 12 years representing his country from 1988-2006, played in net for a pair of FIFA World Cups (and was on the roster for another in 2002) and was named the captain of the 1994 team. Meola was in Seattle for the first time this week to watch hometown Sounders FC take on international powerhouse Chelsea FC (July 18, 6:30 p.m., Century Link Field) in a friendly. He took some time with the Reporter to talk about his time as a National Team player, US Soccer’s rebooting of its academy system, playing in the NFL and the local rivalry with the Portland Timbers.

‘Pump Boys and Dinettes’

The cast of “Pump Boys and Dinettes” performs at the Renton Civic Theatre. COURTESY, Tanya Zambrowsky

Bellevue Civic Theatre creates jobs from the gas pump to the diner BY MARY JEAN SPADAFORA Bellevue Reporter

J

ohn Kelleher first saw “Pump Boys and Dinettes” 26 years ago, accompanied by 25 high school students. The play – set at a roadside diner and gas station settled in the middle of two small North Carolinia towns – seemed comical and fun. The story, revolving around four pump boys and two waitresses, had heart in it, he thought. “[The characters] aren’t really fleshed out, but the music is real,” Kelleher said. Now, almost three decades later, Kelleher is directing the same play he fell head over heels with. His direction – and acting – will transform Meydenbauer Center Theater into Highway 57’s gas station and diner in Bellevue Civic Theatre’s “Pump Boys and Dinettes,” July 19-21. The production, BCT’s last of the 2011-12 season, will leave travelers with full bellies, tanks, music and laughs. The play, which premiered on Broadway in 1982, stars six actors from the Puget Sound area – including Kelleher.

Community theater

Kent Phillips grew up in Bellevue with a passion for the arts. As he grew older and watched theater companies come and go, he wanted to bring back entertainment to his hometown. “[I] remembered the old [Surrey] Playbarn theater,” Phillips said. Bellevue had no theater company in the late 1990s and “the Playbarn had professionals and community actors. I wanted to bring that back.” Alyson Soma, associate artistic director of BCT, said Phillips thought long and hard about starting a nonprofit theater company. “I’m sure he had feelers out for years” to make sure the community backed his idea, Soma said. In order to bring the theater to life, he reached out to other members of the community – including Soma – who were as passionate about the arts as he was. The company, a non-profit, had a start-up cost of $150,000

and Phillips and the board of directors received grants, donations and public support to cover expenses. The company opened in 1999, with their first show in the summer of 2000. Today, BCT is the only resident theater company in Bellevue and is finishing its 12th season. “Many have come and gone in the last decade,” Phillips said. “National tours will come in from time to time but we are also unique in that we are a community theater that mixes in union talent.”

Stretching resources

After five years, the board of directors asked whether the theater should become full equity or stay a mix-sized community theater. Soma said the board decided to stay the same because BCT was the only theater of its type in Bellevue: comedic theater employing union and non-union actors. More changes came when the recession hit in 2008. Ticket sales dropped from 12,000 a season between 2003-2008 to 2,000 people in 2010. The drop in ticket sales, in combination with the construction of the Bravern, which is adjacent to Meydenbauer Center, almost killed the theater, Phillips said. He began budgeting by looking at season ticket revenue and dropped the total number of plays per season from five to three. The theater also started sharing shows with other theater companies as another way to cut costs. BCT has shared productions with Renton Civic Theatre, ACT Theatre in Seattle, Kirkland Repertory Theatre and the Tacoma Arts Guild. Today, BCT’s budget is about $200,000 a year, including salaries for actors, renting a space for rehearsal, costume and display, and rental costs at the Theatre at Meydenbauer.

The Present and Future

BCT’s “Pump Boys and Dinettes” production is a collaborative effort with RCT. The artistic director at RCT hired Kelleher, a former music director for the company. Kelleher, who worked with BCT once before, hired all of

CURTAIN CALL WHAT: “Pump Boys and Dinettes” WHEN: July 20-21 @ 8 p.m. WHERE: Theatre at Meydenbauer For tickets, visit www.bellevuecivic.org/BCTTickets. the actors – all non-union – three months before the show premiered at RCT. Nick Watson, who plays one of the pump boys, heard about the play through Kelleher. As a non-union actor studying acting at Cornish College in Seattle, getting paid was rare. So he jumped on the opportunity to build his resume. The civic theaters, because of their support of actors at any stage in their career, has been an enriching experience. “It’s been awesome,” Watson said. “Best show I’ve ever done.” Chris “Fish” Jones, another pump boy, agreed. Jones was recommended to Kelleher for his ability to play bass guitar. He had no prior acting experience, but his role as one of the pump boys has him playing music and a main character. Soma noted that the theater tries to provide a great playing ground where the young can learn, get experience and move up. As their 12th season ends, Phillips, along with the same board of directors with whom he began, hopes the theater can continue to save money and grow their audience back to pre-recession levels. In addition, he hopes to look into a type of ticket selling that provides free tickets to those in need. Phillips and the board also are exploring webcast performances and a “pay what you can” system for ticketing. “While many theaters do this for young patrons, we do it for seniors and those in economic trouble,” he said. “The hope is as times get better, they will continue to come and support the theater.” Mary Jean Spadafora: 425-453-4270, ext. 28-5058; mspadafora@bellevuereporter.com

Artist Louise Hankes in her home. KEEGAN PROSSER, Bellevue Reporter Hankes said her painting is also inspired by her years as an art docent at Lakeridge Elementary. In addition to 24 large format paintings, Hankes will have a number of Giclée (fade-resistant, archival) prints for sale. The large format paintings (36x36) range from $1500-2500. The giclée prints will be in the $200-250 range. In regard to the small space her booth provides, Hankes said she will have a catalog with pictures and descriptions of each piece for sale. Hankes said her experiences with painting has sparked her creativity so much that she hopes to take elements of the series in to different mediums. She is especially interested in making the whimsical shapes in to metal sculptures for her garden - and has already begun to make prototypes out of cardboard. She also has a new series of paintings in the works - of which the details she is still figuring out. She said, it will involve even more color, textures and shapes.

For Mercer Island resident Louise Hankes, getting into painting was a way for her to find the playfulness in art once again. “I was always trying to prove that my art was legitimate,” said Hankes. “These are just fun.” An experienced printmaker, Hankes worked for a number of print and sign-making companies throughout California before making her way to the Northwest. She’s since dabbled in a variety of other mediums: silkscreen, etching, watercolor, woodcarving, glass blowing, multimedia and sculpture - as well as jewelry making. Hankes will make her debut as a painter at this year’s Bellevue Festival of the Arts, July 27-29. Inspired by a number of her father’s Norwegian Rosemaling wood carvings, Hankes’ “Whirlism,” series combines airbrush acrylic paints and organic swirls on canvas to create pieces vibrant in both look and feel. While Hankes originally thought about making the whimsical images using printmaking techniques, she had a change of heart when she started painting with a handful of friends on a weekly basis. As far as method, Hankes said she starts by mocking up the painting on small tiles. “I have tried to do some without the thumbnails,” Hankes said. “But all of the ones I’ve tried didn’t turn out.” She then sketches the shapes on the canvas using a pencil. Next, she paints the background - and moves to the more eccentric shapes from there. “Sometimes [the idea] is in my head, sometimes it’s not,” Hankes said. “Sometimes, I just let the shapes speak to me.” The “Whirlism” series was originally intended to be a series of eight paintings. Eighteen months later, Hankes has completed 24 different works of art. In regard to the festival, Hankes said her interest was sparked after checking it out a few years ago. “[My husband] wanted me to try and sell other art I’ve done,” Hankes said. “But it’s not what I wanted to do.” Hankes said she decided to submit her work to the Bellevue Festival of the Arts jury because it had a different feel than other fairs she has looked in to. “The other shows I checked out didn’t seem as artist friendly,” Hankes said. She said the organizers of the festival have been extremely supportive in helping her prepare. Hankes currently works in a studio located in the basement of her house, a creative space she also shares with her son and daughter, ages 10 and 12. ‘They’re really into it,” Hankes said into her childrens’ involvement with her paintings. She adds that there individual interests in art have been a major inspiration to the project.

Instead, he continued to pursue leadership roles that propelled him into the role of scoutmaster, a position he held for more than 30 years. “You get somebody who is interested in scouting like I was and one thing leads to another,” he said.

former leader had vacated the position. After talking with the parents, McGaw agreed. During the next 30 years, McGaw learned a lot about scouting and leadership. From camping outdoors to inviting mothers into the troop to participate, a trend that began to grow after McGaw became involved in the program, he handled conflicts between parents and scouts and adapted to change. But he also learned another valuable skill –

decision making – which permeated into every aspect of his life, from scouting to his insurance company. The most recent decision: let someone else take charge. “I’ve gotten rained on for many years,” he said. “I felt it was appropriate to have someone in charge that is a few years younger than me.” But despite his decision to step down, he doesn’t plan on abandoning the troop altogether. McGaw will remain

an advisory figure within Troop 606, offering counseling to anyone from the current scoutmaster to children and young adults pursuing their Eagle Scout. He will also continue to attend troop meetings and share his input. “As long as you feel you’ve accomplished something and you enjoy doing it, why give it up?” he said.

as the troop treasurer in 1960 when his son, Bruce, first joined the group. With no previous experience in Boy Scouts of America, McGaw thought this would be a good way to slowly get involved. Over time, he became a committee chairman and later, the assistant scoutmaster. Five years later, his son acquired an exploration post outside of Troop 606 and McGaw faced the decision on whether to leave or to stay. Around the same time, parents approached McGaw asking him to become scoutmaster because the

REPORTER Q/A | Overlake Service League becomes Bellevue LifeSpring It’s a “new” day at Overlake Service League. The century-old social service agency has a new name, new symbol and a new CEO. However, the goal remains the same: “to guide our direction to the next century of service,” President Trish Carpenter said. The agency’s new name is Bellevue Lifespring and it will be headed by new CEO Steve McGraw. McGraw comes to Lifespring after 32 years of work with nonprofits, foundations and social service agencies in and around the area, including the Starlight Childrens Foundation, Seattle Aquarium Society and Catholic Community Services, among others. He will be the agency’s first full-time paid executive. The Bellevue Reporter sat down with Carpenter and McGraw to learn more about the changes. Reporter: Why the changes? Carpenter: Our new name has helped us overcome confusion with other organizations and resonates more strongly with the next generation of potential volunteers and donors. Our butterfly (the new symbol) represents the empowerment of those served, their metamorphosis, renewal and the launching of a new life through our services. Reporter: How did the agency get started? Carpenter: In 1911, three Eastside women recognized that there were families in need in our community. Serving those in need is why we still exist today. Reporter: How did you become involved? Carpenter: I was a newcomer to Bellevue in 1987 and was introduced to the work of the organization by a neighbor. I’ll never forget the first time I made a home delivery of a sofa to a family. There was no furniture in the apartment, just a tiny child’s table with two small chairs. It was a young single Mom who had fled a domestic violence situation. She gave me the biggest hug you could ever imagine. That was the first of many such experiences that continually reconfirm my dedication to the work of this organization. Reporter: Has LifeSpring refocused its goals in light of today’s needs? Carpenter: Our mission has not changed from solving human problems. Not only is there poverty in Bellevue, but we face the stigma that there is no poverty in Bellevue. Here are some statistics that may surprise you: Overall, 22.8 percent (4,114) of students in the Bellevue School District participate in the free and reduced price lunch program. Some schools with larger percentages are Lake Hills Elementary (69 percent), Ardmore Elementary (52 percent), Sherwood Forest Elementary (50 percent). Reporter: What prompted the move to a paid CEO? Carpenter: The organization has depended on full-time volunteer management which is not sustainable. In addition, the number of families, children and adults living in poverty in Bellevue is growing at a rapid rate. In order to

DID YOU KNOW? ■ In the early years (1929) Bellevue LifeSpring volunteers went on horse and buggy to deliver goats to families so they could have milk. ■ In 1938, Bellevue LifeSpring provided “well baby” clinics for families who could not afford medical care, long before there was a hospital in this community. ■ Bellevue LifeSpring provided the first resuscitator to the Bellevue Fire Department (1939) and purchased the first transmitter for communication between the Medic One Van and the Overlake Hospital (1972). ■ Bellevue LifeSpring has operated its thrift shop at Bellevue Square since 1947 (65 years) and it is the Square’s oldest continuous merchant. ■ Bellevue LifeSpring receives no city, state, county or federal funding. It raises all of its funds from individuals, families, businesses, and foundations.

and change lives for the better. Their services are integrated into the schools and other human services for a comprehensive mix to help youth, families and adults in need. Bellevue LifeSpring is about neighbor helping neighbor. Reporter: What do you see it accomplishing in the next several years? McGraw: For over 100 years, Bellevue LifeSpring has been about people coming together to solve problems, human problems in Bellevue of and with our neighbors. As Bellevue continues to grow, children, families and adults living in poverty is a growing reality in Bellevue. Bellevue LifeSpring has and will always be there to be the means where people make a positive difference to help our neighbors in need to a productive life. Reporter: How do you hope to tap into this population/ community to move LifeSpring forward? McGraw: Bellevue LifeSpring Circles are the neighborhood and downtown grassroots level to get involved. We want to grow existing Circles and create new ones. Business and community leaders can now become engaged with the Board of Directors to make a leadership level impact on the mission and the community. We will build on our partnership with schools and engage students and their parents. We will also reach out to area businesses to engage their employees in volunteer opportunities.

focuses on teaching participants how to control eating habits and start workout regiments to lose weight and keep it off. Dedomenico also briefly helped run the family business, Golden Grain, which makes pasta products, before selling the business for more than $250 million to Quaker Oats. And he runs a rehabilitation facility for race horses in Redmond. What keeps Dedomenico moving all the time? “It isn’t what you did yesterday, it’s what you’re going to do tomorrow,” he said. Be that as it may, Dedomenico’s yesterday should not be forgotten. He started early, scrubbing in with his father on his first surgery at age 15. Later, after graduating college he was drafted to serve as a medic in Vietnam. There he discovered the trick that would lead to the invention of the cardiac bypass. This work was motivated by Dedomenico’s desire to be more than just a cog in the medical machine, but to do something that could help thousands, if not millions of people. This same motivation pushed him toward founding the 20/20 program. Furthermore, he witnessed the rise in healthcare costs, and wanted to find a way that people could manage

Mark Dedomenico not only helped build the profile of Golden Grain, he even starred in some of the company’s advertisements. COURTESY PHOTO themselves with the assistance of several different medications. “The only way we are going to get the cost of medicine under control is to reverse diseases where we can,” he said. The program runs between eight and 12 weeks for weight loss, with another 20 weeks to help people learn to keep it off The program costs $8,000 for the shorter version and $10,000 for the 12 weekprogram. Participants have sessions with trainers and dietitians to make them feel comfortable and educated about their weight loss process. The program has evolved greatly over the years, as more information about food came out. Dedomen-

ico said when he was running Golden Grain, he felt pasta was pretty healthy. Later on, he learned he was wrong. The prescribed diet has shifted to focus less on carbohydrates and more on protein. The 20/20 program has undertaken hundreds of cases, but few stand out as much as those of Parul and Leslie Bhargava. Both came in a little more than a year ago at more than 300 pounds. Leslie experienced progress immediately, but Parul, an employee at Microsoft, had a tough time with the combination of stress, the availability of unhealthy food, and anxiety over exercise. “Relearning how to eat and make healthy choices

is tough, especially when you’re surrounded by mostly unhealthy options because we are all busy,” Parul said. At just 36, Parul was diagnosed with hypertension, and a history of heart disease in his family made him realize what he had to do. He hit a wall initially, but after the 32-week program was complete, he was training for a marathon. Now both under 200 pounds, Parul and Leslie still see their trainers regularly. Parul has completed one marathon and is training for another. “Before I couldn’t even run, and now I am running marathons,” he said. Nat Levy: 425-453-4290; nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

Controls stay on medical marijuana Following a public hearing on interim zoning regulations that govern medical marijuana “collective gardens,” the Bellevue City Council on July 2 voted to maintain the interim controls and directed staff to prepare a permanent ordinance. The council adopted the six-month, interim regulations in May to ensure the gardens, currently allowed by state law, don’t harm residential neighborhoods. Bellevue’s interim ordinance allows the gardens only in areas zoned light industrial, general commercial and medical institutions.
