Much of John and Nelda Brangwin’s 22-year marriage centers around the written word. They met in a book club, and throughout their Bellevue home one can find one of the more than 30 magazines and newspapers the couple subscribes to. Nelda is a librarian at Cherry Valley Elementary in Duvall who helped institute several reading programs, at which John has helped out. Now John is taking it a step further, building and dedicating a small book depository to his wife, who is currently studying in New York. The Brangwins are the latest entrant into what is becoming a worldwide trend, Little Free Libraries. The Wisconsin-based company sells, or helps people build, small structures placed on the front of the lawn, filled with books. Neighbors and passersby then borrow a book for free, and hopefully contribute a piece to the collection as well. Brangwin, a retired salesman and long-time magician, just put the finishing touches on his Little Free Library at his home at 16715 SE 35th St. this week. The structure, which Brangwin hired door and window contractor Michael Langhans to build, is filled with Northwest identity.

One woman died and four others were hospitalized Tuesday night after a suspected drunk driver crossed the center line near N.E. 120th Street on Juanita Drive in Kirkland and struck an on-coming car head on. A Bellevue man was also injured in the crash and hospitalized. The at-fault driver has been identified as Kelly Hudson, 41. The victim’s car, a small sedan, was Police are upping DUI so badly patrols in August, which damhas the most frequent aged that rate of alcohol-related Kirkland crashes. PAGE 3 Firefighters had to cut all four passengers out of the vehicle. A female in that car was pronounced dead at the scene. The other three passengers were transported to area hospitals. Police were investigating the cause of the accident and suspect that the driver of a blue minivan heading southbound may have been impaired or intoxicated. That driver was also transported to an area hospital.

A malfunctioning tar kettle caused a fire at a construction site near Bellevue High School on Aug. 3. Fire officials said the thermometer of the kettle, which can hold as much as 600 gallons of hot tar, failed causing the material to ignite. Firefighters on the scene called for extensive backup as the fire occurred only 30 feet from the school and a 100-gallon propane tank. The fire ignited quickly and plumes of black smoke could be seen throughout the city. Firefighters spent more than two hours at the site to make sure the kettle would not reignite. No one was injured in the incident. courtesy photo, Bellevue Fire Department

State high court declares 2009 student search illegal By Nat Levy Bellevue Reporter

The State Supreme Court ruled August 2 that a 2009 search of a student’s backpack that yielded an airsoft gun and led to the student’s conviction was not legal, because the school officer was acting in a law enforcement role, requiring him to first obtain a search warrant. According to a 6-3 court decision, Officer Michael Fry’s actions did not fall under an exception that allows school officials to search students without a warrant, therefore the evidence should have been suppressed at trial. “At the time of the search, Fry was seeking to obtain evidence for criminal prosecution, not evidence for informal school discipline,” Judge Susan Owens wrote in the majority opinion. “Further, the search was not to maintain order because (the student) was being removed from school regardless.” Court documents say that the student was arrested in 2009 in the bathroom of Robinswood High School, a now closed alternative school, when the school resource officer witnessed the student handling marijuana. The officer was contracted from the Bellevue Police Department. He placed the student under arrest, and while waiting for backup became suspicious of the contents of the student’s backpack. He then searched it and founded a replica Beretta

air soft gun. The student and his legal team did not dispute what was found, but in the manner it was pursued. After losing the case at three different levels, the Supreme Court was the first to agree with the student. This is because previous cases indicate the officer was in the right, the three dissenting judges wrote. The dissenting judges argued that the school resource officer remains a school official whether he is acting in a law enforcement capacity or not because he is working to maintain order within the school for an infraction committed on its ground. Furthermore, the judges argued, the ruling will restrict school resources officers and put more pressure on faculty to police students. “Schools will now be dissuaded from using school resource officers to detect and intercept violations of school rules or the law,” Judge Debra Stevens wrote in the dissenting opinion. “Instead, teachers and other school administrators who have reasonable suspicion but lack probable cause, must conduct such searches themselves. The constitution does not demand such foolhardiness, nor is it necessarily conducive to respect for student privacy.” Nat Levy: 425-453-4290; nlevy@bellevuereporter.com

Construction projects to close major roads this weekend It’s not Carmageddon, but it is the biggest construction weekend Puget Sound drivers have seen this summer. Drivers should plan and be prepared for total road closures in Renton, Seattle, Bellevue, Lake Stevens and Clearview in Snohomish County. The weekend mantra is leave early, then add an hour. • The State Route 520 floating bridge and all connected ramps will be closed between Montlake Boulevard in Seattle and Interstate 405 in Bellevue from 11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10, to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13, while crews demolish the old Bellevue Way Northeast overpass and dig

With SR 167 closed in Renton, SR 520 closed across the lake, and SR 9 closed in Clearview, parallel routes like I-5, the West Valley Highway, I-90 and State Route 527 (in Snohomish County) will be much busier.

The effort will add extra patrols between Aug. 17 and Sept. 3. August is a deadly month on Washington’s roadways. From 2006 - 2010, on average, more impaired

driving deaths occurred in August than any other month. Police says drivers who are impaired have certain tendencies, such as traveling slower than the posted speed limit, having face close to the windshield, having slow responses to traffic signals, sudden stops, tapping of brake lights and traveling

EDITORIAL

Primary decisive but issues remain

T

uesday’s Primary election looks to be a preview of what voters here can expect in November: incumbents returning to office in the 9th Congressional District and the 41st and 48th legislative districts. All the incumbents have, or should have, the needed 50 percent of the votes. However, that shouldn’t lessen voters’ interest; it is a presidential election year, which would bring people out in droves. A number of state issues also should provide a big motivation to vote. As for the Primary, Bellevue found itself in a new congressional district for this election – the 9th. And Primary votes make it likely that come January, residents here will be represented by a Democrat instead of a Republican. Adam Smith got 61 percent of the vote, easily outpacing Jim Postma, his Republican challenger, who has 23 percent. Incumbents also seem to be unbeatable in the 41st and 48th legislative districts. In the 41st, incumbent Steve Litzow has more than 57 percent of the vote in the race for state Senate. In the House, Marcie Maxwell received 56 percent of the vote for Position 1. In Position2, Judy Clibborn was unchallenged. Unless Litzow or Maxwell do something to turn off their supporters, they will be back in Olympia in January. In the 48th District, Democrat Ross Hunter has 68 percent of the votes in the Position 1 race, far above his challenger Republican Bill Hirt. The race for Position 2 doesn’t have an incumbent as Rep. Deb Eddy chose not to run again. Democrat Cyrus Habib garnered 56 percent of the vote Tuesday to Republican Hank Myers’ 44 percent. The race for Congress in the 8th District - Bellevue’s previous district - looks essentially decided. Republican Dave Reichert got 48 percent of the vote, significantly more than Republican Karen Porterfield’s 32 percent. If he picks up the votes from two other Republicans, which is likely, he’ll have more than enough for reelection. – Craig Groshasrt, Bellevue Reporter

A year of better healthcare BY LISA JENSEN

A

s Valley Medical Center has reached the one-year anniversary of our Strategic Alliance with UW Medicine, I am pleased to report that we have already increased the availability of quality healthcare in our community. In the July 2011 to July 2012 period, we have expanded Lisa Jensen coverage at Valley in neurological surgery and thoracic surgery, expanding education and training through the UW emergency medicine residency, standardized reporting for patient safety and quality, implemented a rapid process improvement program to reduce the costs of care and creating additional access to primary care, secondary care and highly specialized care when needed. The coming year should bring expansion to oncology services, cardiology, urology, ophthalmology and several other clinical areas. Being a part of the UW Medicine system allows our physicians to have priority access to specialized care at UW Medicine when a patient needs urgent specialty services such as open heart surgery or organ transplant surgery.

In addition to the expansion of clinical services, we are working to reduce the overall cost of healthcare and to transform healthcare delivery. The recent Supreme Court decision on healthcare reform validates the concept of integrated delivery systems; a key component is readily available primary care. The combination of VMC’s clinics and UW Medicine’s Neighborhood Clinics has increased access to care in your neighborhoods and access to world class specialists when needed. Valley Medical Center is committed to continuing the progress we have achieved in the first year of the Strategic Alliance. The shared mission to improve the health of the public has allowed VMC and the rest of UW Medicine to focus on expansion of services and alignment of best practices as we prepare for healthcare reform and the growing needs of our population. The focus of the Board of Trustees, with 11 trustees living in the service area, is to provide oversight to the delivery of healthcare in our community. We will continue to provide progress reports to let you know when new services are added. Thank you for relying on Valley Medical Center for your healthcare. Lisa Jensen is chair of the Valley Medical Center Board of Trustees. The hospital district includes part of Bellevue, including Newport Hills.

had never performed to the backdrop of fireworks before the Fourth of July this year. I heard it would be challenging. However, more than anything, it felt exhilarating to play music with my peers from the Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra. It was the first time youth orchestra had performed at the Bellevue Family Fourth; rehearsals usually end in the middle of May after the final concert. Brita Moore We rehearsed four times for the Fourth of July concert. We had played some of the music during the year, such as the music from Turok 2 and the Video Games Live Suite. We also learned favorite American songs, including the 1984 Olympic Fanfare and Theme, “America the Beautiful” and “Stars and Stripes Forever.” In addition to the fantastic BYSO students, the conductors and coaches from the organization’s seven divisions contributed their skills, and former members of the BPO joined us as well. It was great for the students to play alongside professionals. In addition, the orchestra invited back former members, adding two bassoonists, a clarinetist, and me, a cellist. BYSO values support from its alumni, and it hopes to bring back even more alumni next summer when the orchestra will play for the Bellevue Family Fourth once again. I plan to join the celebration next summer, and I hope to see even more familiar faces. It is part of the challenging excitement of the experience. BYSO is already planning for the 2012-2013 season, its 49th. Auditions are Sept. 8, 10, and 11 at Bellevue First Presbyterian Church Youth Center, 1717 Bellevue Way N.E.

Renovation planned for Sammamish High; city questions parking

BY KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

The Bellevue School District is in the beginning stages of planning the renovation of Sammamish High School, a multiyear project aimed to begin in July 2013. According to an application submitted to the city on July 12, the project will include the demolition of most of the high school, with the exception of the current performing arts center and parts of the administrative section, which were rebuilt in 2005. While the project is still in development, the school district is working with the city to secure all necessary permits to begin construction. Jack McLeod, director of facilities and operations for the school district, said it hopes to have plan specifications posted to the district website by March, 2013, and to secure the project bid by late March or April. McLeod said the new academic structure likely will sit three stories high, and will be built around the current performing arts center. A new gym will be built on the northern part of the campus, near the performing arts center, and parking will be moved to the southwest end of the campus. A new cafeteria and commons area will be built where the current library sits. To accommodate Sammamish’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) curriculum, a variety of different spaces are being planned as part of the new instruction facility; in addition to “traditional” classrooms, the facility will feature state-of-the-art labs, prep rooms and classrooms with shared collapsable walls so teachers can work collaboratively. Also unique to the new facility will be the creation of an open commons area outside of the new library. Regarding plans, McLeod said the city has some concerns •

School to be three stories to match performing arts center seen at left. KEEGAN PROSSER, Bellevue Reporter about the number of parking spots that will be available on the new campus, and the potential for traffic jams at entry points on 140th Avenue Southeast. The district and the city also are working to ensure the new facility is accommodating to community groups who currently rent the facility. “A main focus of this project is to see how we can provide access to certain parts of the building and not others,” McLeod said. The rebuild will be funded by a bond issue (Phase 2) passed in 2008, which gave the district $524 million toward school renovations. In addition to the rebuilds of Bellevue and Sammamish high schools, this issue covers the modernization of the district’s middle schools. A third phase is expected to be voted on in 2014 to cover the costs of rebuilding the remaining schools. McLeod said it is still too early to give a hard number, but the construction costs for Sammamish should amount to approximately $80 million. As the new facility will be located where the current parking lot sits, students will continue lessons in the current academic buildings. Classes will be moved into the new building as the project progresses. A public meeting about the rebuild will be held Sept. 4.

He plans to increase his contributions as soon as he sees what people are taking and putting in. The little boxes have

been spreading around the world since fall 2009 when the company’s cofounders, Todd Bol and Rick Brooks, met at a workshop. They are in all 50 states, six Canadian provinces and 30 countries. Brooks, Outreach Program Manager in Continuing Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has always sought to create something that brings people together. “There is a real yearning for a sense of community,” he said. “We discovered there was a real potential for this little box of books to connect people in very interesting and positive ways.”

OVERDENTURES SUPPORTED BY IMPLANTS

In cases in which a patient cannot tolerate wearing traditional dentures, or bone loss prohibits traditional denture wear, a removable overdenture supported by implant anchors may offer the best solution. This prosthetic treatment begins with the implantation of several titanium anchors in the upper or lower dental arch or both. After five to six implants are anchored into the bone of the upper arch, and/or four or five are inserted into the lower arch, each group of implants is connected by a stabilizing bar. At the appropriate time, a custom-fabricated overdenture is placed over the bar by means of a silicone gasket, which comfortably holds the denture in place as an interface with the implants. Alternatively, implants may also serve as stable abutments to bridges and partial dentures. Are you a candidate for a tooth implant? At NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, our commitment is to provide you the highest standard of personalized dental care. You will find our dental services exceptional, and we understand that good dentistry is more than excellent clinical skills and state-of-the-art equipment. Establishing lasting relationships with our patients based on mutual trust and open communication is an equally important factor.

tion Of Corrine Riley. Teens should view the exhibit and write a poem or story, or create a visual art piece inspired by the quilts. Poetry about unrequited love is fine, but it still must follow the theme of quilts. Quilts can keep you warm, but they can also smother. The possibilities are endless here. There are several ways to view this exhibit: Go to the museum. It doesn’t need to be expensive. There are Free First Fridays, Teen Tix, or free passes through the King County Library System. View several quilts from the exhibit website. Scroll through 12 quilt photos for your inspiration. Create something amazing. Email it to writingcontest@kcls.org. Poems and fiction must be pasted directly into the body of the email. No attachments, special fonts or images. Poems no longer than 100 words, fiction no longer

www.bellevuereporter.com than 1000 words. For visual art, teens please attach a .jpg file of their art and email it to writingcontest@kcls.org. The 2D visual piece may be no larger than 10” x 16”, 16” x 20” or 22.5” x 26.5”. 3D pieces may be no taller than 3’. The poem, story and visual art piece will be displayed at the Bellevue Library, appear in print in the Bellevue Reporter and win a $50 gift card to University Bookstore and a student membership to Bellevue Arts Museum. Finally, here is the fine print: All entries must be emailed to writingcontest@kcls.org. Emails must include name, age and phone number of author/ artist, word count and title of work and short artist statement. Middle and high school students only.

The Redmond City Council has extended its moratorium on medical marijuana collective gardens by another six months. Late last year, the council approved the first six-month moratorium to give city staff time to study the state law concerning collective gardens and the impacts they could have on the community before recommending any type of regulations. In November, state residents will vote on a measure to legalize marijuana for recreational use. The council hopes the outcome will provide some clarity.

Coffee for a cause Medina girl, 8, sets up business to help pediatric cancer foundation

W

hen most little girls open up a lemonade stand they do it to get money for toys or clothes. Then again, Callie Lentz is not most little girls. Callie, 8, witnessed tragedy at a very young age. Her friend, Ben Towne, was diagnosed with a form of pediatric cancer at the age of 2 and died a year later. When Ben’s parents set up a foundation, Callie knew she wanted to start a business to help out the family. So one February day, on a walk with her dad, Ryan Lentz, Callie pitched the idea. Not for a lemonade stand, but a coffee company.

Callie’s Coffee

To order products online, visit www. calliescoffee.com/. The company can also be found on Facebook at: https://www.facebook. com/Calliescoffee “All adults drink coffee,” she said. With that, Callie’s Coffee was born. Callie’s parents Ryan and Mollie put their own money into starting the company. The goal is to both raise money for the Ben Towne Foundation, which gives 100 percent of all donations to pediatric cancer research, and increase awareness of the foundation and pediatric cancer. But, if they were going to do it, they

were going to do it right. The Lentz’s chose to use Camano Island Coffee for the product. Friends and family pitched in to help them start a website and Facebook page. Ryan Lentz’s one condition on putting his money behind the venture was that it be a family activity. Mollie Lentz, the kids’ mother and a marriage and family therapist, calls herself a consultant. Callie, who says she “pretty much does everything,” is the founder, but her two younger brothers are also key components. Robbie, 6, is the chief labeling officer, and Nick, 4, is the chief shipping officer. Kids from around the area have taken to See Callie, 8

Employees of Lydig Construction in Bellevue climbed a mountain to fight breast cancer for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The team included 23 climbers, 18 of whom sumitted Mt. Adams. The Lydig team was the largest in Fred Hutch’s history to participate in the event. It raised $100,000 of the event’s $641,000 total.

the project as well, helping design labels and put them on bags. The family was excited to start the new company, but they had no idea how quickly it would take off. “We launched on a Monday and on Tuesday we shipped 130 packages,” said Ryan Lentz, who owns a commercial real estate company, and

an animal supplement company. In the first three weeks, Callie’s Coffee took in more than $12,000. Things percolated so quickly that Ryan had to move the operation into a warehouse in Bellevue. Bags of coffee start around $12, and customers can purchase them online. The company also offers mugs and other merchandise. The family made its first donation to the Ben Towne Foundation, a

www.bellevuereporter.com

$2,000 check, last week. “Callie proves what we believe to be true: that kids can change the way pediatric cancers are treated and cured,” said Jeff Towne, Ben’s dad. “Callie is an inspiration to us and we are amazed by her compassion and generosity.” In the coming months, the Lentz’s are planning to take part in some events and engage in sponsorship opportunities to get the name of the company out there.

Hips and knees are replaceable because time spent missing out on life isn’t.

Ryan Lentz said donations to the foundation are important, but getting people to think about the cause, and potentially spur them into getting involved, is just as important. “When people see the name Callie’s Coffee I want to see them associate it with pediatric cancer and the Ben Towne Foundation,” he said.

Development coming downtown Skanska USA has purchased a 41,000 square foot parcel at 11011 NE 9th St. in the heart of downtown Bellevue. The site, dubbed Alley 111, is planned for a mixed-use space with 259 apartment units and ground-floor retail possibilities. Downtown Bellevue currently lacks an activated multifamily concept for the growing number of jobs located in the urban core,” said Lisa Picard, Executive Vice President, Skanska USA Commercial Development Seattle. This purchase represents Skanska’s third project in Seattle since the commercial development group started operations in February of 2011. Skanska worked closely with R.M. Watson Co. to bring this gateway site to market, one of only three permit-ready, mixed-use multifamily projects currently in Bellevue.

Bellevue Police got a chance to get to know residents and show off some of the department’s best equipment at National Night Out August 7 at Crossroads Mall. The police exhibits attracted a couple hundred residents throughout the day, most of whom had eager children in tow. For them it was a thrill, for residents and police, it was a place to develop a relationship. “This is our neighborhood party,” said Officer Dave Porter. “We don’t know a lot of our neighbors here.” The purpose of the Night Out event is to raise awareness about crime and drug prevention, generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts, and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Residents in neighborhoods throughout the nation were asked to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights and spend the evening with neighbors and police. Citizens throughout the city, state and nation have organized their own block parties. The value, Porter said, is if something happens

Bellevue camp for teens celebrates fashion, individuality BY KEEGAN PROSSER

FASHION CAMP RUNWAY SHOW

Bellevue Reporter

Fashion-savvy teens from all over the Eastside and Seattle made their way to downtown Bellevue this week as part of the second annual Fashion Camp by Rosaline Hampton. Organized by the world-renowned stylist and salon owner, the week-long camp, that ends today, included beauty, fashion and style workshops led by style mentors and Eastside fashion professionals. “The focus of this camp is to not just teach these girls how to follow trends, but to embrace their personal style and be trendsetters,” Hampton said. Created by Hampton in 2010, the nonprofit fashion camp aims to give girls 14 to 18 hands-on fashion experience while providing an environment that encourages self-confidence and individuality. Each day campers were connected with a number of professionals within the fashion and beauty industry. On Monday, Brittany Belur from the Nordstrom Visual Team led a workshop about sustainability in accessorizing. Belur, who also sells handmade turban-style headbands under the brand STUD (Sustainable Textiles and Unique Design), taught the campers how to make a variety of fashion-for-

Camper Vanessa Sanchez works on braiding her headband during the accessories workshop on Monday. KEEGAN PROSSER, Bellevue Reporter ward accessories using recycled clothing. “I can’t afford stuff off the runway, but I like to make things that look like I can,” Belur said. The accessory workshop focused on giving the campers the tools to create “trendy” pieces without breaking the bank. Keeping with this theme, campers used scraps of cot-

ton shirts, leather pants and fabric Belur found at Goodwill to create an assortment of braided headbands, scarves and leather bow ties. Additional workshops included lessons on at-home nail care and hygiene, hair, make-up and styling – as well as talks by guest speakers Yuliya Suleymanova, fashion director for Madina Vadache; Eugenia Weston, founder of Senna Cosmetics; and professional photographer Meg Stacker. New to this year’s camp were daily nutrition and wellness lessons, which had participants learning about the importance of eating right and exercising. Guests for this portion of the program included personal trainer and nutrition coach Katie Wygant; Seattle Seahawks Sea Gal Cassie Sells; and professional fitness athlete Tanji Johnson. This year also introduced a new fashion challenge: on Thursday afternoon each participant was given $20 to spend, and 20 minutes to shop at Forever 21 with the goal to find something to wear with their Fashion Camp T-shirt. The outfit will be showcased, along with their accessories from earlier in the week, at the camp’s graduation and runway show, taking place this evening at 7 p.m. Hampton worked with the Dana Johnston Foundation at Rainier Beach High School and the Rise and Shine Coalition to recruit interested campers. With help from sponsors including Rock Star Jewelry, Luna Bar and Queen Anne Dispatch, as well as Rosalie Hampton Salon Inc., participants attended the camp free of charge.

Judge dismisses suit over 520 environmental analysis

A reason to celebrate

Families from all over the Eastside gathered at the Pavilion at Crossroads Park on Tuesday, Aug. 7, to celebrate Kindering toddler’s graduation ceremony. Kindering is a nonprofit neurodevelopmental center for children ages birth to three, with special needs, located in Bellevue. Started in 1962, this year’s graduation marks the 50th Anniversary of the center - and consisted of 401 graduates, although not all students participated in the ceremony. In addition to a keynote address by Kindering parent Eileen Hardin, the graduation included sing-a-longs to “Old McDonald,” and Bubbles” and was followed by a reception in the park.

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit that sought to overturn the Washington State Department of Transportation’s environmental analysis of a new State Route 520 bridge. U.S. District Court Judge Ricardo S. Martinez issued the ruling July 25, rejecting an effort by a group to force further analysis of alternative designs for improvements to the SR 520 corridor from Seattle to Medina. Opponents had criticized WSDOT for not further considering a four-lane bridge design. “Our analysis was thorough and exhaustive, and we hope that the ruling by Judge Martinez puts an end to the debate about

mobility improvements to this vital corridor,” said state Transportation Secretary Paula Hammond. With the court’s decision, WSDOT can continue with construction of SR 520 improvements as planned and funded. The SR 520 program replaces the aging and vulnerable four-lane floating bridge with a six-lane corridor that includes a transit/ HOV lane and two general-purpose lanes in each direction. Planning and environmental analysis began in 1997 to improve safety and mobility in the SR 520 corridor from Seattle to Redmond and was completed in 2011. The full text of the ruling is posted online at www.wsdot.wa.gov/projects/SR520bridge.

BY JOSH SUMAN

GET ON THE COURT

Bellevue Reporter

Throughout a prolific high school career that saw him garner All-KingCo honors in multiple sports and earn Division I scholarship offers in basketball, Kyle Keyes never thought about life after the game. Like so many others who find stardom at a young age, his focus was on preparing himself for a career at a major college program and someday the NBA. But while his game rapidly developed on the basketball court, Keyes soon learned the work done outside the lines is just as crucial.

Youth camps: i-Ball has one more camp in Bellevue for kids ages 6-14, from August 27-31 at Crossroads Community Center from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Individual training: Along with basic speed and agility training, i-Ball offers strength and conditioning, fundamentals, group and team workouts. AAU program: i-Ball has three teams for high

school aged boys and several more for younger players. Call 425-949-7321 for more information.

“I had a lot of great coaching and played with great players,” Keyes said. “But I didn’t have a lot of guidance with where I should go to school and

how to prepare.” Without the board scores and grades to gain admission into any of the schools that had extended an offer, Keyes’ road to the pros took

its first detour with a stop at Edmonds Community College, far from the national stage of major college basketball. Things seemed back on track when Keyes landed at the University of Montana two years later, but again the path was riddled with obstacles. Injuries from a year at Bellevue College followed Keyes to Missoula, reaching an apex when he tore the Anterior Cruciate Ligament in his left knee only a week before the season. “It was a humbling experience,” he said. “I started thinking there was a possibility I could do something else besides play basketball.” Uncertain about his own future as a player, Keyes still knew he wanted to remain in the game and give future collegiate prospects the counsel he never received. The result was the resurrection and expansion of i-Ball. Keyes began the basketball-focused non-profit in 2003 to host private lessons for youth players. With his playing days seemingly behind him in 2010, Keyes wanted to begin hosting larger clinics with his coaching staff and also start a team that would compete in the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), which has nearly all of the top prospects in the country on teams in its national circuit. But more than expanding his basketball empire into coaching, Keyes wanted to provide a program that included assistance with the entire recruiting and college selection process, not just the part that took place on SEE BALL, 16

Sports Roundup

What’s happening in sports and recreation

Lakeside Senior Legion wins title Lakeside Baseball Club went 5-0 and defeated the Kennewick Bandits twice during that stretch to capture the championship at the Washington State Senior Legion baseball tournament in Selah. The 18U squad from Lakeside (32-12) opened its run with a 7-5 win over the Spokane Bandits before taking the first of two games with Kennewick 17-5. Wins over a squad from Centralia and the Twin City Titans put Lakeside into the title game for a rematch with Kennewick. Another victory, this time 8-5, gave Lakeside the trophy and ensured its spot in the regional tournament in Billings, Mont. on August 9. Coach Rob Reese’s team was scheduled to meet the Wyoming champs in the first round on August 9, after the Reporter’s deadline. A spot in the American Legion World Series on August 17-21 in Shelby, NC. the ultimate prize of the tournament.

the court. “We want to take care of people first,” Keyes said. “We make sure to give them more attention. I’ll have kids bring their transcripts and talk about them to keep them accountable.” Jon Kaneshiro, who met Keyes as a seventh grader and is now the only other full-time staff member of i-Ball, said Keyes’ ability to relate his love of basketball to kids is one of the many reasons he has remained involved in the program for nearly a decade. Kaneshiro is now the associate head coach with i-Ball and also helps coordinate the AAU program and youth camps.

“He’s been a great mentor and friend,” Kaneshiro said. “Kyle was the one that really kept me going and loving basketball.” Kaneshiro, who did not continue his career in organized basketball after high school, gives Keyes’ philosophy merit by proving he is out to accomplish more than attaching his name to the next future NBA Draft Lottery pick. Keyes added that a mandatory grade review will soon apply to all of the AAU teams i-Ball fields and that for those who need it, tutoring could also be available. Along with helping his players navigate their work in the classroom, Keyes wants to make sure they also understand the sometimes complex process of gaining

Newport’s Dylan Harlow, along with 2012 grads Rixing Xu, Chris Lilley and Alec Tsutsumoto, were joined by Samantha Garrard (Issaquah) and Kana Moriyama (Redmond) to form the team, which competes out of Bellevue’s Robinswood Tennis Center. Lilley and Harlow finished the prep season by taking third place in the 4A boys doubles tournament, beating Tsutsumoto and Andrew Choi in the third place match. Garrard also earned a place at state, finishing in sixth with Kelsey Wilson in the 4A girls doubles bracket. The 18U national championships are in Columbia, South Carolina in October.

While Keyes has shifted his focus to coaching in recent years, a tryout with an NBA Developmental League team and American Basketball Association team could soon push him from the sidelines to the court for one final run at his professional dream. “I keep an even keel when it comes to that stuff,” Keyes said. “We’ll see what happens with it.” Regardless of how he fares at the tryouts, Keyes knows one thing for certain.

Legendary axe-murderer turns rock ’n’ roll goddess in new musical adaptation BY KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

Six new musicals will be brought to life this weekend as part of Village Theatre’s 12th Annual Village Originals Festival of New Musicals. Recognized nationally for it’s focus on developing new musicals, the festival serves to launch a handful of developing shows into the musical landscape. Previous successes from the festival include “Next to Normal” (previous title “Feeling Electric”) and “Million Dollar Quartet” - both of which had their start at the Festival of New Musicals and went on to win multiple Tony Awards and a Pulitzer Prize (“Next to Normal”). Other recent musicals that got their start at the festival, and went on to Village Theatre’s Main stage season, include “Iron Curtain,” “It Shoulda Been You,” “Anne of Green Gables,” “Chasing Nicolette” and “The Gypsy King.” This year, the festival features five new musicals in reading format, fully sung with script in hand, performed at the Francis J. Gaudette Theatre. The sixth musical, “Lizzie Borden,” - which returns to the festival after being featured as a read-only last year - will have three workshop showings open to the public at First Stage Theatre. Created by David Cheslik-deMeyer, Tim Maner and Alan Stevens Hewitt, rock and roll musical “Lizzie Borden” has been in development, in some form or another, since the ’90s. Following the story of the infamous axe murderer, “Lizzie Emma Borden, sister to Lizzie, performed by Billie Wildrick. COURTESY Borden” plays with the idea that Borden was a “rock star” of PHOTO, CARLY VESTER her time, garnering fame, fortune and a loyal following for a crime of which she was acquitted. The new musical is part historical re-telling, part rock concert - and lots of fun. Cheslik-deMeyer said the idea of creating a concert experience around the tale was something that came from his love of female rockstars like Anne and Nancy Wilson of WHERE: First Stage Theatre, 120 Front Street North, Issaquah Heart, Joan Jett and The Runaways. WHEN: Aug. 10 @ 10 p.m., Aug. 11 @ 5 p.m. and Aug. 12 @ 5 “The story seemed to parallel rock and roll mythology,” p.m. Cheslik-deMeyer said. And while Borden’s story takes the idea of “rebelling TICKETS: $25 adults; $20 students & seniors or FREE with a against your parents” to a whole new level, Cheslik-deMeyer Village Originals Membership. felt it was a fitting way to tell the story. “People love [Borden] in the way they love villains,” said Tickets available at http://villagetheatre.org/VO-LizzieBorden.php Cheslik-deMeyer, in regard the fanfare behind the lead in or 425-392-2202. the show. “This musical will have them rooting for her.” The stripped down show focuses on the four central characters involved with the murder of Borden’s parents:loan?guts, as Cheslik-deMeyer ensures the musical has its fair Need a business Lizzie, her older sister Emma, their neighbor Alice and with the us. share of comedy, too.

COURTESY PHOTO tion for anyone,” Ingram explained, adding that it brings stability that isn’t available otherwise. Jackson, though, received a lucky break when she got housing through the YMCA. “She won a lottery, literally,” Ingram said. The YMCA program gave Jackson a temporary living arrangement as she struggled to gain control of her life. Ingram recalls his frustration at Jackson’s choices during that critical period. “I’d go over and first she had one, then two, then a bunch of homeless people living at her place.” Ingram’s issue wasn’t with Jackson lending a helping hand, it was with the influences those ‘guests’ brought with them. “I didn’t want to leave my friends,” Jackson related, her voice soft, but firm.

In the third to last row of a chapel in Bellevue, a young woman sits struggling with her 2-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son. She looks nearly indistinguishable from the other families sitting around her, attending to children as they try to listen to the speaker at the pulpit. Two years ago, that woman, Casi Jackson, was living on the street, a single mother with another child on the way. She escaped domestic violence, but still struggled with the vices of a life born in a jail, bouncing through foster homes and dealing with a teenage pregnancy. Today she has an apartment, just started college and – most important to her – is able to care for her two children in the stable environment she lacked as a youth. Casi Jackson’s success story is uncommon. Joe Ingram, of Vets Edge, a grass-roots homeless shelter, has seen thousands of young women like Jackson in his years on the street. Ingram, a veteran, was homeless himself for many years. Today he is one of the few that officials call to speak with homeless men and women. He takes calls 24 hours a day. “When no one qualifies for any of the programs, I get them,” he said. Ingram met Jackson four years ago when she and her daughter were moving from shelter to cardboard box to a tent. “Housing is the founda-

www.grandcouleedam.org

“But I couldn’t provide the right environment for my children until I made tough choices.” A turning point came when Jackson refused to turn to alcohol or drugs when she faced each crisis. She stayed clean, eventually weaning herself off all her vices, including cigarettes. To stop smoking meant losing the camaraderie she relied upon. Once her son got out of the hospital, it was easier to move forward. Ingram believes Jackson’s life might have eventually drifted back to the streets had it not been for a knock on her door last May from two missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Ingram credits the members of the local church with providing his friend with a stability that she’d lacked. Members of the congregation came together “to help Casi and her children in every way,” said John Rex, the Bishop of the Cougar Mountain Ward in Bellevue. One woman in particular, Julie Nelson, opened her

Bellevue home to Jackson. Nelson, an artist, “essentially became a surrogate mother,” Rex recalled, describing how she singlehandedly coordinated Jackson’s medical appointments, ferried her to the hospital, provided food and clothing, and, he recalled with admiration, how her two teenage sons found a new calling as they provided daycare and support for Jackson’s children. In the many months that followed, Rex doesn’t recall a single complaint or wince at the intrusion that happened in Nelson’s home. “It touched Casi, and it touched every member of our congregation,” Rex said. Jackson is now finding the capacity to give back and has become a member of a committee that plans activities for the church. “I love being able to create events that help others,” she says. By her example, Jackson is teaching another generation, her own children.

Heritage Corner A look at Bellevue’s past

Clyde Beach and its dock in 1908. COURTESY PHOTO, Eastside Heritage Center

Clyde Beach The area we now call Clyde Beach Park has been a popular spot for recreation and boating since the late 19th century. Originally a ferry dock named Peterson’s Landing, the park acquired the name “Clyde Beach” after Clyde Avenue (now 92nd Avenue) was constructed in the early 1900s. The beach, the road, and Clyde Hill were all named after either the Firth of Clyde or the Clyde River in Scotland. Clyde Beach Park was one of the four “parks” Bellevue acquired from King County when the city incorporated in 1953. Only 0.25 acres, the street end was too small to be called a park legally, or to support toilet facilities. However, the city was able to purchase additional acreage in 1968 for $17,000, and developed the area into a bona fide park one year later. The city also purchased the neighboring 1.16-acre Wick property (also called the Stanley McDonough mansion) in November of 1984. Funding difficulties and neighborhood opposition prevented a park remodel until 1997. As of 2012, the park is 2.23 acres.

ho gets the cat if we die before he does? Why am I leaving money in my will to a theater that produces outdated plays for outdated people? Why are the deceased still on my list of inheritors? And would it be a good idea if we gave the executor of our estate a copy of our will and a key to our front door, or should we leave it to Ann Oxrieder him to kick it in? As we get older, we need to consider these questions or ones like them every few years, as part of what is known euphemistically as “putting your house in order.” The truth is that the literal

act of getting your house in order is a lot simpler than updating your personal records, compiling a list of a 150 passwords from the scraps of paper they’re now on, putting together names of people to invite to your funeral, and drafting an obituary. The latter belongs in the, “Who wants to think about this stuff now, I’ll get to it later” category of things to do. My husband and I are talking about it now only because a tour company requested emergency contact information, which to me translates into, What do you want us to do with your bodies if you’re killed overseas? I tend to overdramatize, but that’s because the first thing that comes to mind when putting ‘traveling’ and ‘emergency contacts’ in the same sentence is, There’s nothing anyone here could do if we got sick there – wherever “there” might be – so they must really be asking, How do we handle your remains if you decide to run with the bulls, climb without oxygen, or overindulge on the native cuisine? My solution was to ask some very well-prepared friends for advice. Regrettably, they gave it and now we have a lot more work to do than we did when we were only occupied with wringing our hands.

Nature walk provides glimpse of great outdoors By KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

For those seeking an adventure in the outdoors that’s close to home, the rangerled nature walk through the Mercer Slough Nature Park may be the perfect way to get out in the wild. Led by Assistant Park Ranger Curtis Kukal, the hour-plus walk takes adventureseekers on a journey through the park, where they have the opportunity to learn about the long history of the slough, and the many plants and animals that work together to keep the habitat alive. Mother and son duo, Tina and Isaias Valdes, stopped by the Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center last Saturday to take part in the nature walk. Their goal?

To enjoy the rare sunny summer day in Washington. “It’s the sleepy time of the day,” said Valdes, who lives in the Lake Hills neighborhood of Bellevue. “And it was a great way to get outside.” Valdes said while she has been to the Nature Park before, Saturday’s outing was the first time she had taken part in an official program at the educational center. But the promise of learning something new, and the solace of the great outdoors, were not the only things that drew them in. “I want to see bears,” Isaias said. Finished in 2008, the educational center is a joint operation between the Pacific Science Center of Seattle and the city of Bellevue, where exploring and learning about the environment is the focus.

dition to the youth workshops and summer camps run by the science center, several programs - including the Nature Walk - are a great way to spend the afternoon with the whole family. And while there were no bears in sight Saturday, a number of American Goldfinch, dragonflies – and the Blue Angels – did make their presence known. “I’m just really happy they do these types of things for kids,” Valdes said, amidst traversing the young forest and picking
