hen the diagnosis arrived, Lynne Banki experienced a gamut of emotions, led by a sense of uncertainty. “It was extremely intimidating,” said Banki, whose son, Caspian, was diagnosed with autism just before age 3.
Now, 18 and ready to leave his Sammamish home for his first year at Front Range Community College in Colorado, Lynne feels nervous again. This time, however, her worries come with the sense of pride and confidence of a mother watching her oldest of three children off on his own — something Lynne struggled to fathom 15 years ago. As a child, Caspian displayed many of the
common idiosyncrasies associated with autism. He would repeat phrases over and over, he became frightened easily, he would throw intense tantrums and he struggled socially. Now, the recent Issaquah High School graduate confidently looks people in the eye, gives handshakes and answers questions. “He’s ahead of the curve now,” Lynne said. “When he was born, I thought he was behind the curve.”
FARM LIFE Years of various treatments were vital, but it’s also easy for Lynne to point back to one specific life-changing moment. In search of a way to show Caspian “things behind the things,” she wanted to reveal to him where food at the grocery store came from. This led her to a Jubilee Farm, a Community Supported Agriculture establishment, in Carnation. Lynne started bringing then 6-yearSEE AUTISM, 6

Garbage and recycling cans continue to reach their brims in the north end of Sammamish. As of Wednesday afternoon, Waste Management recycling and yard waste truck drivers in King and Snohomish counties continued a strike that started July 25 following failed contract negotiations. In a move of solidarity, Teamsters Local 174, which represents garbage truck drivers, also went on strike. The strike has disrupted services to approximately 220,000 across the region, including thousands of residents north of Northeast 8th Street and Inglewood Hill Road in Sammamish. “They serve about 1/3 the population of Sammamish,” said Mike Sauerwein, the city’s administrative services director. Allied Waste/Republic Services provides services south of Northeast 8th Street and Inglewood Hill Road. Those drivers are not on strike and garbage and recycling days remain on a normal schedule. Waste Management has used replacement drivers to handle commercial customers, but is backed up on residential routes. Sauerwein said it was his understanding that drivers are scheduled to make double pickups this week in Sammamish if company is able to supply enough replacement SEE GARBAGE, 5

Making a splash
Within a minute of the fire truck pulling up for Issaquah’s annual Splash Day, kids had abandoned their water games – such as a version of duck, duck, goose where kids sit in buckets of water instead of chairs – and chanted for the fire hose to start. Firefighters from Station 73 hooked their ladder truck up to a fire hydrant and within a few minutes the excitement turned to chaos. A mosh pit of kids filled in beneath the heaviest spray, while others sprinted from the water like a bomb had gone off.
A breeze pushed the water back and forth across the field, when someone opened an umbrella. A few children ran beneath it, before darting to their parents. When the excitement died down, so did the water. A firefighter approached the crowd, soliciting a steady chant “we want water,” parents joked that they might have a riot soon, but the hose began again, and so did the chidlren’s laughter. A few hundred kids showed up at the Issaquah Community Center event Aug. 1.

Kings of clean Sammamish couple operates unique casino supply business BY KEVIN ENDEJAN KENDEJAN@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM
The famed neon lights and bustling streets of the Las Vegas Strip are far from 228th Avenue in Sammamish. But they’re closer than one might think. For the last 14 years, Ralph and Cathy Bell have operated Diamond Casino Products from their quiet Sammamish neighborhood, selling cleaning solutions and machines to some of the gaming industry’s biggest casinos. Anyone who has played games in establishments like the Bellagio, MGM Grand or Harrah’s has touched a chip, card or table effected by the Bell’s product — and they’re probably grateful. “When the chips get dirty, they get sticky and they’re just very unsightly,” Ralph said. “With the bacteria and the germs, it’s just
really nasty.” Before moving to Washington in 1985, Ralph worked eight years as a Las Vegas card dealer. He followed by opening successful video rental stores in Kirkland and Sammamish before venturing back into the gaming industry in 1998 when he purchased the rights to Zip’s Card Cleaning System — a machine that specializes in cleaning plastic poker cards. It was there, through networking, he found another opportunity — an untapped market of sorts. “At this time there was nobody cleaning chips,” Ralph said. “We found this company that had a patented solution that was sodium based, not soap based. It cleaned the chip, it removed all the oil and grease, dirt and germs and all this stuff. It made it brand new again.” Ralph purchased the sole rights to sell the solution

from the manufacturer, which is based out of San Luis Obispo, Calif. “They don’t want to sell it, we don’t want to make it,” Ralph said. “It’s a nice marriage.” Diamond Casino Products currently has between 300 and 400 clients, selling cleaning machines and solutions to regional casinos like Snoqualmie and Muckleshoot and to others as far away as Peru and Australia. Ralph said there are only two other competitors worldwide who do similar work. He said the major difference is his solution does 90 percent of the cleaning and doesn’t contain soap.
“It’s not toxic, it’s not hazardous, it’s not harmful, there’s no smell, there’s no taste, it’s very safe, but very effective,” Ralph said. A chip cleaning machine, which provides the finishing touches, holds about 80 chips and it cleans about a chip every second. The patented products aren’t available to the general public, but they do sell to a few private chip collectors. While the majority of calls come from casinos, Ralph recently had an interesting experience when his phone started ringing off the hook in the wee hours of the morning. Somehow his 1-800 number got mixed up with a voting line for an Indian game show, “Dance India Dance.” The calls resulted in one month’s worth of charges at nearly $4,000, forcing him to temporarily shut down his

business line and call King 5’s consumer watchdog Jesse Jones. The “Get Jesse” experience resulted in AT&T’s removal of all charges and quite the memory. “This thing with Jesse was just hysterical,” he said. Of course, Ralph would gladly take legitimate workrelated calls at 3 a.m. if it meant more people using his product. He said that

there are a large number of casinos out there who never clean their chips, or don’t do it frequently enough — something to keep in mind when sitting down at the poker table. “A lot places will replace their chips every 10 to 12 years, but in the meantime it’s just dirty, grease, germs, oil, bacteria,” he said. “It’s scary what’s on there.”

Seattle Stadium proposal has lots of complicated issues
e’ve always known that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. It also seems that “risk-free” isn’t actually that either. A report from the good-government group The Municipal League, says the proposed NBA/NHL stadium being talked up in Seattle does indeed come with risks and may not be self-financing as backers say. Hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen, along with the mayor of Seattle and the county executive are proposing a $490 million arena that would include $290 million in private money with the public putting up $200 million in public bonds. That public portion would be repaid through arena taxes and revenues. As the League rightly points out, if people just shift their entertainment dollars to the new arena from other out-and-about activities, both the county and Seattle have a problem. Revenues from the arena go to arena expenses. The money no longer being spent elsewhere means there’s less taxes for the county’s and Seattle’s general fund. Maintaining current services likely would require higher taxes all around. The League notes one other concern. If Hansen and his partners were to default on the deal, taxpayers would be stuck paying off the bonds. The League study concludes by noting that “This is a complicated proposal with many moving parts. Making it work well will require careful consideration of many choices and details.” We agree.
MULLET BEST FOR SENATE
For Ed Ray, president of Oregon State University and chairman of the NCAA’s executive committee, for declaring, “We’ve had enough. This [whatever-it-takes-to-win philosophy] has to stop.” Ray was commenting on penalties imposed by the NCAA on Penn State following the conviction of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky of molesting children.
I have the highest regard for Sen. Cheryl Pflug. I understand and accept her need to move on to a new opportunity and pass the torch of state senator to someone else. Mark Mullet is fairly well known here in town but Brad Toft is not. I asked each candidate where he stands on several important policy issues — gay marriage, medical marijuana, state spending, state income tax, alternatives to Medicaid and gun control. Mullet responded promptly with pretty good answers, from my point of view. He bills himself as a fiscal conservative and social liberal. So far his positions align with that, except he seems a little soft on defending the right of sane, law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. Toft did not respond, and its been five days. I’m getting the impression he wants to avoid controversial issues. I don’t usually vote for Democrats, but in this case, Mark Mullet seems like the best choice to be our new state senator.

COLA PLAN DISAPPOINTING How disappointing to learn that “Sammamish adopts a new COLA plan,” (Reporter, July 20, page 3). COLAs are antiquated practices that provide automatic increases to pay simply for being on the job for another year. They are not related to performance or to the value of the work being done (in fact they provide highly compensated employees with increases that may put their actual pay well beyond what is reasonable in the marketplace). Many cities and other governmental agencies have recognized that COLAs perpetuate an entitlement mentality among employees and increase costs for citizens without any accountability for results. I believe it is time for the city to engage in thoughtful discussion about how pay is
administered so that employees can be treated fairly and competitively and our tax dollars can be used wisely.

We have several hundred children that are receiving full bags of food each week. Their lunch bags are full with breakfast, lunch and snack items and a typical bag has peanut butter, jelly, fresh fruit, granola bars and cereal. We would like to send out a special thank you to the following groups that have dedicate their time or financial resources to helping make this program be the huge success it has been. If you would like to be involved in our Summer Lunch Program please contact Cori Kauk at cori@ issaquahfoodbank.org.

ISSAQUAH NEEDS NEW COACH How many more times does Issaquah have to lose to Skyline before there is a major coaching change? Counting last year’s loss, Chris Bennett has lost seven straight times to Skyline. I know Bennett is a heck of a nice guy, but he really hasn’t won anything. Everyone around Issaquah foo. He’s really good at blowing out lesser teams, but if Issaquah is ever going to get back on its feet and be a football powerhouse again we need to move forward and bring in a real football coach that can produce wins.

drivers. Earlier this week, Waste Management began advertising for drivers to replace the 153 striking recycle drivers and said those drivers could become permanent. In the meantime, residents should continue to place their cans out on regularly scheduled days. With all the wildlife in the area, neighbors are warned to be cautious. “Just make sure that your garbage cans are closed properly,” Sauerwein said. “Usually bears or raccoons won’t try to get into them when they’re like that. It’s when they’re tipped over or left open that there are problems.”

Several other cities, like Seattle, are fining Waste Management daily for breaching their contract. Sauerwein said Sammamish is currently exploring its legal options. “We hope that they’re hope able to get back to work as soon as possible and provide the services that the citizens expect,” he said.
About 74 percent of Issaquah residents think the city is headed in the right direction and 57 gave the municipality a thumbs up for spending money wisely, according to a recent phone survey The intent of the survey was measure how residents felt about a parks levy, which would repair or replace the failing Julius Boehm pool. About 85 percent of city residents were for a $10 million levy, and about 61 percent of people who live in the Issaquah School District were for it. When the money doubled to $21 million, support in the city slipped to 74 percent. The survey also discovered about three-fourths of people felt positively about allowing some businesses to open up at Lake Sammamish State Park. The survey didn’t, however, explore what people felt about a levy that included money to repair the park.

County considers consolidating As King County is evaluating its E911 system, it’s considering consolidating its 12 dispatch offices, including Issaquah’s. A report on a recent study of the services is expected to present a recommendation this October. City Council talked briefly about options, in the event that the county wanted to close Issaquah’s dispatch office, but Police Chief Paul Ayers assured the members it would be a couple years before anything could happen. “I will be extremely angry if this survey results in the diminution of the outstanding public service that we have,” said Council President Tola Marts. “When people call in (to dispatch) and say there is a shooter between IMS and Clark, I don’t want someone to say what’s IMS and what’s Clark?”

Two Great Organizations Dedicated to Helping Kids consists of three organizations, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle Children’s Research Institute and Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation. Children’s Hospital provides inpatient, outpatient, diagnostic, surgical, rehabilitative, behavioral, emergency and outreach services. It has 254 beds and a staff of over 1,200 professionals, including over 700 doctors. In 2011, it had over 300,000 patient visits, including visits to off-site clinics. Seattle Children’s Research Institute has nine major centers with over 350 investigators researching hundreds of diseases and disorders in fields such as cancer, genetics, immunology, pathology, infectious disease, injury prevention and bioethics. Researchers in the centers collaborate with each other and with their colleagues at partner institutions including the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Doernbecher Children’s Hospital began serving patients in 1926 in Portland and is now affiliated with Oregon Health and Sciences University. It has clinics in several communities
around the state of Oregon and one in Vancouver, Washington. Like Children’s Hospital in Seattle, Doernbecher is involved in research which is quickly translated into new treatments. Specific areas of research include cardiology,
neurology, weight regulation, metabolism, oncology and stem cell research. Both Children’s Hospital in Seattle and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital believe that children should have compassionate, family-centered care. Both are at the
forefront of pediatric medical research so that they can advance new treatments in their quests to prevent, treat and eliminate pediatric disease. You can join QFC in supporting these great institutions by donating at any check stand using the

In a perfect world every child would be happy and healthy. Unfortunately, the real world doesn’t work that way and not all children are able to enjoy good health. But fortunately, many of those young people who have health issues have two premiere northwest institutions to turn to for some of the best pediatric care in the country. They are Children’s Hospital in Seattle and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Oregon. QFC is proud to support these two great organizations as our charities of the month for August. Each is a leader in providing superior patient care and using research to advance new treatments. Children’s Hospital in Seattle has been treating children regardless of race, religion, gender or a family’s ability to pay since 1907 and provided over $100 million in uncompensated care in 2011. It has consistently been ranked among the best children’s hospitals in the U.S. and serves as a pediatric and adolescent referral center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho. Seattle Children’s
AUTISM CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
old Caspian to the farm every day after therapy sessions. “The last thing we used to do at the end of the day is come here,” she said. “It was just a place where I could let my guard down.” Lynne noticed Caspian was blossoming with the frequent trips to the farm when he started to understand which foods came first in specific seasons. “That’s when I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if other families knew about this and they could come,” Lynne said.
FESTIVAL BORN She approached Erick and Wendy Haakenson with an idea
about of hosting an autism event at Jubilee Farm. There was no hesitation from the owners. “I couldn’t even finish the sentence and [Erick] was like ‘sure,’” Lynne said. Since 2001, the farm has hosted Autism Day WA. The free event features a variety of activities and booths. The most popular event, according to Caspian, is the slip and slide which uses water pumped from the nearby river. For Erick, who said he knew several families touched by autism, two things in particular pulled him into hosting the event year after year. “Families of autistic kids said this is a place where we can bring our kids and feel like they can be safe,” he said. “The other thing was,

it’s just great to see the autistic kids themselves coming out in droves and just having an absolute ball.” Each year, the event grows. The first drew 40 families. Last year the number moved up to between 350 to 370 families, or close to 1,200 people. Lynne, who is the executive director of Autism Day Washington, said she expects more than 400 families this year. The high turnout is not a surprise, considering the latest numbers from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention say 1 in 88 children has some form of autism spectrum disorder. That’s changed from 1 in 150 in 2002. “Guaranteed you’ll see another family and say, ‘Oh my gosh, that kid does the same thing my kid does,’” Lynne said.
2012 EVENT This year’s event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 11, features several autismfriendly activities, booths, live performances, food and a firstever fundraiser raffle. There are also two quiet zones on site for those who become overwhelmed. While children are often the first thing that comes to mind with autism, Lynne said adults shouldn’t be forgotten. In fact, there will be several on the autism spectrum at the event who will run their own booths and put on live performances. Caspian, the inspiration for Autism Day, is headed off to Fort Collins, Colo., soon to get adjusted to college life. “I’m kind of unsure about it,” he said. “It’s a new transition, but I’ll

She has written a book with Caspian, “What Autism Means to Me,” and is working on spreading similar non-profit events to other regions of Washington and other states. “I guess it kind of ends up touching every part of your life,” she said.

Police called after man tries to ride bike in drive-through
A fast-food joint with a drive through on East Lake Sammamish Parkway called to complain about a man who kept trying to ride his bike through a drivethrough lane. The officer arranged to meet the man, who told the officer that he was mad, because they wouldn’t serve him on bike July 12.
FALLEN FENCE A Sammamish man called police July 26 to report someone had ripped the entire section of his backyard fence off its posts and pushed the section over onto his lawn. The man’s property backed up to a trail that
just east of 228th Avenue Northeast. It is a popular route for making a shortcut to Safeway.
WHOOPS Police responded to a call from a woman claiming she was missing $8 and six cigarettes. After the officer spent some time speaking with her July 16, on the 800 block of Front St. S., he found her money in a robe she had previously been wearing.
TRESPASS Police found a homeless
man sleeping at a laundromat that was closed. He left when asked, and the next day they found him at an Issaquah free meals program to serve trespass papers. The man refused to sign the forms, but listened to the officer’s explanation July 16.
SMOKE AND RUN Sammamish police responded to a report of juveniles trespassing in the 900 block of 233 Place Southeast after neighbors saw teenagers leaving an abandoned house July 26. Police found a rear sliding door open and entered the home to detect a strong smell of marijuana coming
from the garage. The teens fled the area.
TAP-TAP A woman called police to her home on the 500 block of Lingering Pine Drive Northwest, when she heard tapping on her second-story window. It turned out the noise was just a tree branch hitting the window July 15.
STOLEN TAPESTRY A personal appraiser called police July 21 to report someone was stealing from an elderly client. The 90-year-old Sammamish woman was missing a Navajo tapestry from her wall. The framed item was valued at more than $7,000.
The case was forwarded to detectives for further investigation.
EGGED HOUSE A resident in the 3300 block of 217 Place Northeast reported someone hit his home with nine eggs sometime between July 20-23.
STOLEN CHECK A Sammamish woman called police July 24 to report someone stole her check and fraudulently cashed it. The woman believes someone stole the near $3,000 check from her mailbox in the 2800 block of 216 Avenue Southeast when she was on vacation.

Sammamish teen skates with family by his side
Issaquah Baseball Club 8U takes Stods Tournament
BY JOSH SUMAN
Sammamish’s Payton Moriarity skates at the Crossroads Skate Bowl. JOSH SUMAN, Issaquah &
When Payton Moriarity began skateboarding, he wasn’t after professional contracts or corporate sponsorships. But after watching his father introduce the sport to his younger brother, Payton knew he wanted in. “I was kind of jealous,” said the Inglewood Junior High eighth-grader. His father Patrick, a former skateboarder himself, started both his young sons in the sport with “miniboards” designed specifically for kids. It didn’t take long for Payton, now 13, to catch his father’s passion for skating and turn it into a family pastime. “When I skated in the late 1970s and early 80s, it was mainly a form of transportation,” Patrick said. “Payton tried the board and wouldn’t get off of it.” Rather than sending their son to find his own way to local skate parks, Patrick and Jeanne Moriarity join Payton, often bringing his
younger brother and sister along. While landing tricks with mom shooting photos from above may not be the typical portrait of skating, it is one the Moriarity’s have shown can work twofold. Not only has his parents’ presence and involvement in his skating career helped steer Payton from the unseemly side of skateboarding culture, it has given them an up-close look at his progression from newcomer to one of the top youth skateboarders in the region. “It just gives us another chance to spend time together,” Patrick said. “We’ve traveled to skate parks and been able to connect by being together.” Along with trophies from several competitions in Sammamish and around the region, Moriarity has already garnered sponsorships from Cake Eater and Coldwar Skateboards, both based in Portland. Before the group disbanded, he was
Payton Moriarity also a member of a youth skateboarding team called The Anklebiters, which practiced at the since-closed Skate Barn in Renton. “The first week I spent at the skate park, I just started liking it,” he said. “I’ve been working at it for a long time and just enjoy doing it.” Along with treks to most of the skate parks and bowls around Greater Seattle, the Moriarity’s have taken trips to Oregon, Canada and most recently California, all as part of the effort to ensure skateboarding remains an event the family can congregate around.
For Payton, the possibilities of a professional career are still on the horizon. He and some members of the Anklebiters have plans to construct a vert-ramp for practice sessions and he also hopes to have a chance to meet current professionals to learn more about their paths. Regardless of where his board takes him, Moriarity knows his family won’t be far. “I see a lot of kids whose parents just drop them off and come back later to pick them up,” he said. “My parents are here to help me progress.” For Patrick, it has been a thrill watching his oldest son take hold of an activity he passed down. “It wouldn’t matter what the activity was,” Patrick said. “Just being there to see him go through the struggle and put in the time to perfect it, that is what you want to see as a parent.”
The 8U squad from Issaquah Baseball Club captured its second tournament title of the summer recently at the Stods Marymoor Baseball Tournament, finishing with a 3-0 record. A pair of wins put IBC into the championship game, where a 13-1 win over a team from Auburn wrapped things up. The team’s other championship came in the Eastside Huskies Classic in Bellevue. The 8U Issaquah Baseball Club team: Zach Eastern, Mitchell Wilson,Evan Roorda, Quinn Lowry, Dominic Guistino, Preston Crockett, Trevor Chan, Cody Chan, Kaden Alberghini, Tommy Martin, Andrew Mattson, Colton Oyster, Bennett O’Connor. Coaches: Richard Eastern and Dan Wilson.
Weiss leads local youth golfers at WJGA state championships A number of area players competed at the Washington Junior Golf Association State Championship at Meridian Valley Country Club and were led by the fourth place finish of Eastlake’s Spencer Weiss. Andrew Kennedy, a member of Interlake’s last two 2A team titles, was eighth at the event in the 16-17 age group. Brian Mogg of Skyline finished 14th while Kennedy’s teammate Patrick Sato was 15th. Zachary Overstreet of Issaquah ended the 14-15 meet in a tie for third, with Sam Fisher of Interlake in ninth and Eugene Wackerbarth of Clyde Hill in seventh. Ian Siebers of Bellevue won the 8-11 yearold division and Sammamish resident Victor Wang was fourth. Bellevue’s Ivan Zhao was sixth. Ashley Fitzgibbons won the 12-13 year-old division on the girls side and Bellevue’s Rachel Fujitani was second.

record-breaking year. One was a frequent tournament-goer Robinson described as, “Really active,” and whom was honored with a moment of silence at this year’s tournament. The other was the mother of LPGA golf professional Molly Miller. “It’s really important to me,” Miller said of promoting hearthealth awareness. “This is a great event.” As players arrive at the 18th hole, where Miller and fellow golf pro Erin Menath from Golf Tech in Bellevue are waiting to play a ball for the group, their excitement is palpable. The women laugh and chat about the playing conditions before hitting their tee shots and taking off down the course. “The most impressive thing is to see all the women show up at a really early hour, all wearing red and excited about a day on the course,” Robinson said. “It’s almost overwhelming.”

Five years Josh Suman later, Golf Fore Red once again brought its largest field to Redmond Ridge, 144 women in all, to raise money for the American Heart Association and Hope Heart Institute. “The women who play in it really enjoy it,” Robinson said. “They are really passionate about the cause.” The 2012 version of the tournament came with a pair of painful of why that passion is so necessary this year.

or amateurs of any sport, few things are more exciting than playing with a professional. The chance to talk shop with someone who shares a passion for the games we love and couples it with skills we can only imagine can be an opportunity to rediscover how tightly wound the ties that bond us to sports truly are. At the fifth annual Golf Fore Red event at the Golf Club at Redmond Ridge on July 28, two pros, Erin Menath and Molly Miller, were on-hand in an effort to show that tie holds firm on both ends. Mary Robinson started Golf Fore Red in remembrance of her late mother, who passed at age 49 from heart disease. Previous work with other heart-health foundations had whetted her appetite, but ultimately lacked the passionate involvement she sought. Along with a friend who suf-
