No foul play in Plateau incident BY CELESTE GRACEY CGRACEY@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM
Issaquah’s congressional candidate brings love for community, government to campaign
BY CELESTE GRACEY CGRACEY@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM
ith little political experience, even less money and no name recognition, Issaquah’s Karen Porterfield does have at least one thing nailed down – her passion for effective government. A management consultant whose worked for years winning government grants for low-income housing projects, she is taking on Congressman Dave Reichert in the 8th District this year.
She believes that her perspective as an instructor of Public Administration would offer Congress something unique. Her past – two parents dedicated to volunteerism and helping pass school levies – is also a distinctive note in her song. Her parents were so involved in the community, she remembers learning math after they asked her to sort stacks of political mailers into zip codes. In addition to volunteering with kids programs, her mother helped found a food bank in Seattle. “They were supportive in the community,” she said at her Talus home. “They just took us along with them.” She held onto their optimistic spirit for change, but applied it to government. After helping Congressman Jim McDermott with campaign fundraising, he gave her name to a Rotary friend at the Salvation Army. He was looking for someone to raise federal money for housing projects. Her eight-month contract turned into 13 years of national housing projects. After a two-year stint at United Way, she felt a desire to make a deeper impact. She loved the idea of teaching others to help their communities. She’s now at Seattle University.
Eighth District congressional candidate Karen Porterfield, an Issaquah resident, grew up in a Ballard home that cherished community involvement. Now challenging Rep. Dave Reichert in the general election, she’s bringing that same optimism toward change to her campaign. CELESTE GRACEY, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter Her interest in running for office didn’t start until two years ago, when Dave Reichert won his reelection campaign. She recalls picking up a newspaper and asking herself, “Why does he keep winning?” Democrats have run expensive campaigns against the incumbent in the past. The district boundaries changed this year and now skip across the Cascade Mountain range. Most saw it as an attempt to strengthen the district for Republicans, but she saw it as an opportunity. Democrats and Republicans have equal supporters, making independent voters the key to winning office. So she began to ask Democrats whether
she should challenge Reichert. When she got a positive response, she took a step forward. When the response was negative – often that she wasn’t wealthy enough, that she would get too frustrated, or that she was crazy to consider it – she let it empower her. If government is going to change, voters have to change who gets sent back, Porterfield said. It shouldn’t matter that you’re an incumbent or personally wealthy. “I just firmly believe that people want to be successful,” she said. “Our goal is to give them the tools.” Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter staff writer Celeste Gracey can be reached at 425391-0363, ext. 5052.
Police don’t believe there was any foul play in the drowning of Barbara Mitchell, a long-time Valley Medical Center executive. Mitchell’s son found her body in a pond along Pine-Lake Road Aug. 8, several hours after she had left for a walk. The 66-year-old had setup a picnic with food and a towel by the shore, said King County Sheriff ’s Sgt. Cindi West. The King County Medical Examiner’s Office determined she drowned, but didn’t find any other major health problems that could Barbara Mitchell have lead to the drowning. Sometime after 10 a.m., Mitchell left her husband a note that she was going on walk near the Rainbow Lake area. She was known to take long walks by herself, so he didn’t suspect anything was wrong until he got a message from her doctor saying she had missed an appointment that afternoon. The son found her about the same time police arrived on the corner of SE 44th St. and PineLake Road. Mitchell was known for her vivacious spirit and love for her family and career. Working at Valley Medical since 1999, she was the president of human resources. “She was smart, insightful, compassionate and a friend, and will be missed by so many on both a professional and personal level,” said Rich Roodman, CEO, Valley Medical Center She is survived by her husband Robb; son, Jordan Miller; daughter-in-law, Mistilyn Miller; grandson, Zayden; and granddaughter, Adel. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 29, in the Healing Garden at Valley Medical Center.

Sammamish Days, Sammamish Nights offer fun-filled Saturday By kevin endejan email@example.com
Whether 9 months or 99 years old, there is something to do this Saturday in Sammamish. The day begins with the city’s third annual Sammamish Days, starting at 9:45 a.m. with the Kids Parade. Dressed as their favorite storybook characters, close to 200 children plan to march from the Mary Queen of Peace Church parking lot to the Sammamish Commons Plaza where entertainment and activities will continue until 2 p.m. This year’s activities feature live performances from a variety of cultures, including Caribbean steel drums, Hawaiian dancers, Irish dancers, belly dancers, a mariachi band and a Chinese Lion Dance group. “We try to hit as many of our cultures as we can,” said Dawn Sanders, volunteer coordinator for the city. Students from Skyline High School will make bookmarks for children by writing their names in Chinese symbols. There also will be Henna tattoos, an opportunity to dress in traditional Indian garb and a photo booth to capture the memories. Saturday afternoon’s celebration will feature a mobile food truck rodeo, with vendors specializing in curry dishes, Asian fusion and gourmet sandwiches. Sanders said parking will not be available at City Hall.
Kids enjoy Sammamish Days arts and crafts activities during the 2011 event. photo courtesty of the city of sammamish Residents are encouraged to park at Mary Queen of Peace and Skyline High School.
SAMMAMISH NIGHTS When the sun starts to set, the action shifts to the adults for Sammamish Nights — the city’s only 21-and-older event.
Running from 6-9:30 p.m., the celebration features tasting of some of the region’s top wineries, breweries, distilleries and restaurants. There are 20 options for libations, including Pikes Brewing Company and Project V Distillery, a Woodinville-based vodka distillery. Nine different area restaurants will be on hand, including Agave, CoHo Cafe, Cucina Cucina, Mel’s Cheesecake, Pogacha, Sammamish Cafe, Sip, Sweet Asylum and Tutta Bella. There also will be live musical performances from the jazz band Ambience and the R&B group @five. Several artists who are participating in the Sammamish Arts Fair in October will have their work on display and for sale. A few artists will even provide live art demonstrations. “This is probably one of the biggest events we’ve ever had,” said Deb Sogge, executive director for the Sammamish Chamber of Commerce. “We really went all out this year.” The all-inclusive event tickets are $40 per person and $45 at the door. The money acts as a fundraiser for the Sammamish Chamber. Sanders there are about 300 tickets currently sold. She said she expects a high turnout and nobody over the age of 21 will be turned away. “We get more and more people every year,” Sanders said.

Race a success
Fund our state parks so everyone can enjoy them
he Legislature wants our state parks system to become 100 percent operationally self-sufficient. Our response is that the idea is – where do we start? – “misguided,” “unattainable,” “self-defeating.” OK, let’s just call it what it is – “stupid.” Followed to its logical conclusion, the idea either would change the parks to something we no longer would recognize, or make using them so expensive as to put them beyond the reach of the average resident to enjoy. Consider the situation. The state has 117 developed parks, 35 heritage sites, 13 interpretive centers and more than 700 historic structures. Keeping them open to the public is – obviously – expensive. But, we call them public parks for a reason – they are available to the public and the public pays taxes to support them. Our parks system also takes care of important geologic sites, places where our state’s pre-history is preserved, and protects vulnerable habitats. All of that gives residents places where they can enjoy the natural, cultural and historic treasures that we have in our state. And they do. The park system estimates that it receives 40 million visit a year. About 94 percent of these are day visits – people just dropping by to enjoy and learn about our state. The Legislature came up with a way to raise money for parks called the Discover Pass, charging people $30 annually ($10 daily) to use the parks. It’s been a monumental flop, raising less than 50 percent of what was projected. Not surprisingly, the Parks Commission has rejected the Legislature’s attempt at self-sufficiency. Lawmakers should find the money already raised by our taxes to keep the parks open for all. – Craig Groshart, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter

Some memories from a winding road
fter my freshman year of college, with my high school ride no longer a viable option, my parents bought a 1994 Honda Accord to make holiday travel to and from school easier and extend my collegiate freedom beyond the dorms. This past weekend, after eight years and more than 100,000 miles together, a destroyed clutch forced me to part with that car for, well, its parts. During the past few Josh Suman months, as I was attempting to sell it, the old Honda has been a source of frustration. But even that headache couldn’t dull the memories from countless hours behind the wheel of a car that was far from perfect, but provided the background to life and time’s shifts. Here are a few of the highlights, and lowlights: Across from the Bellevue Downtown Park, where I triumphantly showed some friends the new stereo. Outside a former place of employment, where said stereo had been replaced by a gaping hole and several snipped wires. Along I-5 at the Washington-Oregon border, where the clutch went out, leaving me stranded on a bridge for two hours
REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK waiting for a tow truck to take me three more hours home. Outside my final bachelor pad apartment, where I started it up for the first time in months after saving to have the parts replaced in order to see my parents. At a middle school in Bothell, where I turned into the parking lot too sharply and spent my lunch hour putting on the (luckily full-sized) spare tire. In the parking lot of an auto parts dealer and wrecking yard, telling the buyer that I had all four tires replaced recently and they are in good shape, only a hint of nostalgia in my voice as I realize I won’t be the one to replace them again. That Honda, no matter how dusty or tough to shift into reverse, was always there. From Washington to Oregon and back, from college kid to cubicle-farmer, from careless and single to cautious and engaged, the car was there for all the transformations. The new ride is more powerful under the hood and refined in the cabin. Hopefully, when all it’s worth is parts, we will be a little further on down the road. Issaquah/Sammamish sports and outdoors writer Josh Suman can be reached at 425-453-5045.

Personalized Healthcare That is Right for You
What’s the one thing people who have had joint-replacement surgery say? “I wish I’d done it sooner.” That’s because it didn’t take long to get back to doing things they’d given up due to the pain. If you’ve put part of your life on hold, then come to a free surgeon-led seminar at Swedish — where our surgeons do literally thousands of jointreplacement surgeries every year. Swedish surgeons were also the first in this area to perform MAKOplasty®, robotic-assisted surgery for partial knee joint replacement.

Krishna’s birth celebrated By KEVIN ENDEJAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Vibrant colors, spicy fragrances and celebratory chants filled the Sammamish Plateau on Aug. 9 as thousands celebrated Janmastami — the birth of Krishna — at the Vedic Cultural Center. “We’re sharing our culture and our love with the public,” said Hari Vilas, president of the center. There was an estimated 5,000 people from all over Washington who attended the celebration one of the Hindu
religion’s most revered deities. While many were associated with the Vedic faith, there also were some curious residents who dropped by. “I met some folks who just walked in from a neighborhood; they just want to see what it’s like here,” said Nanda Suta Das, temple director. There was a little bit of something for everybody. Various displays depicted the story of Krishna’s birth. Close to 30 children performed a variety of musical chants. And, of course, there was the free
food, which included strawberry havala and various Indian curries. This was the fourth year since the temple was built that the celebration has taken place in Sammamish, and the 26th year it has been in the region in one form or another. Only the Ananda Mela festival, which drew 20,000 people to Redmond in late July, is bigger. King County Sheriff ’s officers were on hand to handle a heavy flow of traffic and deal with any parking concerns for the event that lasted past midnight. VISIT ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Whenever time allows, the couple takes to the roads and paths of Sammamish with their dog to rekindle the passion for fitness that defines their relationship. But when the couple looked around Sammamish, they saw a glaring need. There was no retail storefront on the Plateau dedicated to runners, walkers and joggers. So they opened their own. “The community is diverse in its running,” Mark said. “We want to be able to provide what the community wants.” Mark was an athlete throughout his prep and collegiate days, running on the track and cross country teams in high school and continuing his career in college at Western Washington University. When he met Liz, a former ballet dancer, she too was quickly bitten by the running bug. “I think it was just his love for
it,” Liz said of her start to running. “Now, a lot of it is exercising our dog.” The Steens also have two children who are runners, one at Western and another still in high school at Eastlake. Since opening in November of 2011, the Steens and partner Todd Starnes, also an owner at Preston-based Bicycle Adventures, have focused on providing the brands and product lines runners and walkers in the community already know and trust. Liz added that adapting inventory to tailor to the diverse customer base in Sammamish has been important. She said Plateau Runner will continue on that path as the seasons change and people begin looking for materials that stand up to the wetter seasons on the way. Along with CW-X running apparel, which she said several patrons were adamant the store carry, the store recently welcomed Nike footwear, a notoriously difficult vendor to land. With 1,900 feet of retail space, Plateau Runner has plenty of

But more than the jackets, dryfit shirts and newest advances in running shoe technology, the Steens want Plateau Runner to be known for being a gathering
place in the fitness community. With ever-popular fixtures Yo Plateau, Sammamish Cafe and Pacific Bicycle as neighbors, the opportunity is ripe to meld retail and community. “The community has been very supportive,” Elizabeth said. “We’re a store people enjoy being in.”

EXERCISE and the BRAIN
walking and aerobics. Walking is nice, but exercise really means pushing beyond your limits. Walk more than you usually do. You have to see a change. That’s why going to a gym is good because you can see a change easier. Then you really want to push yourself. until you’re out of breath and you are willing to push yourself. But people tend not to push themselves.
ASK THE EXPERT: Dr. John Ratey author of ‘Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain’ By EPHRAIM TUCHO
or those that think the healthy benefits of physical activity are limited to physical conditioning, they may be surprised to learn that the true benefits of exercise are for the brain.
What improvements will someone see in their mental capacities once they start exercising? What the exercise does is that it makes learners better at learning. It improves the attention system, it improves the motivation to stick with it. It lowers impulsivity. You’re less jumpy in a cognitive situation. It reduces anxiety, and all those things make for a better learner. For the brain, for 100 billion nerve cells, [exercise] optimizes it to grow, and that’s the only way to learn things. That’s the way we encode information. The brain becomes better conditioned. Synapses get pushier, make more neurotransmitters and make more receptors. We get our brain cells ready to learn. If our brain cells don’t grow, we don’t learn.
The body craves activity when the brain resists. Is there a way to wire our brain into craving and enjoying this exercise as well? The resistance is there. Other than once you get to a point of being so keyed into it, you get on a regular schedule. The ultimate best way is to do it with someone and to have fun with it. That is the best way to get you going and keep you going. After a while, the best way to get wired is to have something that’s fulfilling and drawing enough and motivating enough on its own. There comes a time for those who make it to about 3 months, it’s very hard for them to stop a regular routine.
Is wiring the brain an additional challenge for people who recently started losing weight or does the same challenges present to those who have exercised regularly in the past? It’s very hard to start. One of the things we know now is that for very obese people the way to get them to start is probably by lifting weights; small curls or lifting things above their heads. They will be able to see a change in their strength and they will be able to see it immediately. They can see themselves getting stronger and they can get closer to
I think if you exercise, your level of fitness is going to change your level of cognition. You’re not going to have that acute burst like you’ve had in the past. Getting to a point where you don’t need exercise is not real. People need to continue to exercise throughout their lives. Your cognition goes down as you get older and it goes down pretty quickly.
Now we’re guaranteeing the same for you. The $

Overall, I’d say best exercise is dance. Vigorous kinds of dance involve so much, so many muscles, as well as the brain, and that’s the trick. What we know is the best results come from exercises that involve coordination and learning challenges. In dance you have to concentrate on the steps and you have a partner and it adds an overall degree of complexity. The more vigorous dance the better. I think the ideal [for an activity] is probably something that gets your heart rate up to 90 percent of maximum for a short period of time

SPORTS ROUNDUP Lakeside headed to World Series After sweeping through five games at the state tournament in Selah during the final week of July, Lakeside Baseball Club’s Senior Legion team had only one more hurdle to clear before having a shot at a World Series title. Coach Rob Reese’s squad is still running. Lakeside’s 18U team (36-13) scored 46 runs in four wins and stormed past championship teams from Wyoming, Oregon, Hawaii and Idaho to capture the Northwest Regional title and stamp its pass to the American Legion World Series in Shelby, N.C. on August 17. The eight team tournament will open for Lakeside against the Great Lakes champs at Keeter Stadium and Veteran’s Field.

REPORTER Q/A | Seattle Storm’s Tanisha Wright
The Reporter’s Josh Suman recently spoke with Seattle Storm guard TANISHA WRIGHT at an area youth basketball camp. A 2005 selection from Penn State, Wright is known for her exceptional defensive skills.
I live in the Southeast. But I like being here in the summer. There is really no other place that compares. It’s the most beautiful place in the country this time of the year.
What has been the biggest change you have witnessed in the league during your eight seasons?
The biggest change is that the athletes coming in are just really good. They start at a young age and develop a lot longer than some of the older players did. They have more opportunity too, and all of that has made the teams much better.
As that trend continues, do you think the league will continue to improve across the board?
I expect that will continue now that the league is doing well and there are so many role models. Younger girls are looking up to a lot more players and have a bigger opportunity.
What is your message to the kids you are speaking to at the camp?
How would you summarize your career thus far and how has playing in Seattle the entire time helped shape the way you look at the fans of the WNBA?
Just to work hard, have fun and enjoy it. Sports are an opportunity to interact with other people. There’s a lot of life lessons within the framework of sports and a lot they can learn like cooperation, teamwork, stuff they will take to a normal job.
You have only missed three games in eight seasons. How have you been able to stay healthy so consistently?
For sure, I’ve been blessed. God has really just taken care of me these past eight years. I’m dealing with some small health issues this year, but nothing serious that keeps me out. I’ve been blessed over the years to be healthy and I’ve learned to take care of my body. The older you get, the harder it is to recoup.
After nearly a decade with the Storm, do you make the Pacific Northwest your permanent home?
It’s been a journey, there have been ups and downs, but overall this ride has been amazing. The fans in Seattle are top-notch. They come out and support every single night. Even when we weren’t winning championships or to start this year, when we were 1-7, they made sure they showed up. You can’t put a value on that, it’s priceless to be able to play in front of these fans.
How do you spend your time away from the game?
When I’m not training I just relax, I like to be at home. I have a really close family and whenever I have free time, I like to make sure I enjoy it with them.

Rat terrier takes bite of Sammamish bicyclist BY kevin endejan firstname.lastname@example.org
The following information was compiled from the City of Sammamish police reports:
POLICE BLOTTER bor, who said she saw the whole thing, reported the bike rider was the aggressor, yelling at the dogs and swinging his bike at them. The man said he would tend to the injuries himself.
HIT AND ‘RUN’ A Renton woman driving a pickup truck hit the side of a car while exiting a convenience store parking lot on East Lake Samma-
mish Parkway Aug. 9 and then unsuccessfully fled the scene. When she went back to her car, the woman acted as she was going for her insurance, then took off in her truck. Police eventually found her truck abandoned at the corner of Southeast 39th Street and 212th Avenue Southeast with the woman hiding under a nearby bush. She said she did not have insurance for her vehicle, got scared and left. She told police she called a friend for advice, but her phone died before she got any. She
DRUNKEN FAIL Sammamish police responded to a report of a noise disturbance in the early hours of Aug. 11 at Pine Lake Park. Upon arrival, police made contact with several young adults, who were warned and left without incident. One 18-year-old male, who smelled strongly of alcohol, refused to cooperate. When asked for his identification, the man made a break for the main entrance
to the park at 228th Avenue Southeast. He was eventually tackled to the ground by officers who were waiting at the gate. He was cited with a minor in possession and obstructing justice.
NEIGHBORS CLASH Police responded to a call of vandalism Aug. 6, more than a year after the alleged incident took place. The caller, in the 3400 block of East Lake Sammamish Shore Lane Northeast, said their neighbors destroyed the slate steps between their house and the fence, causing $500 in damage. They said they didn’t notify police at the time because they wanted to ignore it and not get into a situation with their neighbors.
Sammamish police responded to a call of a bicyclist getting bit by a dog Aug. 9. The man called police after he said he was riding his bicycle in the 600 block of Windsor Drive Southeast when he saw a large white dog in the roadway. The bike rider said he got off his
bike because he didn’t want to hit the dog as “he has hit dogs in the past.” The man said the labradoodle, later identified as Dude, was barking at him. As the dog’s owner came out to retrieve him, a small rat terrier, later identified as Sweat Pea, bit the man in his left calf. Police reported the man received a puncture wound, but it was not bleeding. The dog owner said she apologized to the man and thought the smaller dog was just protecting the larger one. A neigh-
