A BACK-TO-SCHOOL SPENDING SPREE AT TARGET Monica Pumel (left) of the Redmond Fire Department and Redmond resident Jada Pritchett check out the dress selection at the Target in Redmond as part of the Target School Spree program. This is a partnership with the Salvation Army that gives kids from low-income families the opportunity to shop for new clothes for the upcoming school year with an $80 gift card from Target. Employees from the Redmond fire and police departments were also on hand to help the children pick out their new clothes. Sierra Dwelle (not pictured), a lieutenant for The Salvation Army Eastside Corps, said 25 kids in grades K-12 are chosen each year for each participating Target location. The Salvation Army Eastside Corps is located at 911 164th Ave. N.E. in Bellevue and serves the cities of Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Woodinville and Bothell. Samantha Pak, Redmond Reporter


It’s just an open patch of green space right now, but that will change in the coming years as the City of Redmond plans to transform a two-acre parcel of land downtown into a “signature” gathering space. City park planners presented shortterm and long-term plans for the Downtown Park at Tuesday night’s Redmond City Council study session at City Hall. “It’s not much right now, but we want this to be a signature space in the city,” City of Redmond senior planner B. Sanders told council members during the presentation. The city plans to start the master planning process for the park early next year, which will involve gathering input from community members, according to Sanders. The park, at 16101 Redmond Way, is located between Redmond Way and Cleveland Street and bounded to the east by 161st Avenue Northeast extension, which was completed last August, and bounded to the west by the historical Stone House. The park has already taken some shape with the creation of a large open, green space on about half of the planned park site as part of the 161st Avenue Northeast extension project. City officials are encouraging residents to use the current space and get involved in the planning process. “I think we’re still very early in the process and we have not yet started the master planning process for the park,” Council Vice President Hank Margeson said after Tuesday’s meeting.

Jason was born with a number of heart defects as a result of Holt-Oram syndrome, a disorder that affects bones in the arms and hands and may cause heart problems. He had his first heart surgery when he was seven days old, according to his mother Janet Richards, and underwent three more procedures before he turned 4. Janet said these procedures rerouted his blood vessels so oxygen could be delivered throughout his body and were meant to last 20 to 25 years. At that point, they knew Jason would probably need a new heart, she said. [ more JASON page 3 ]

Matt Horvat lived in Boston the first time he taught in front of a class. He was coaching a high school rowing team and stepped in as a substitute math teacher. Horvat was attending Boston University (BU) and earning an advanced degree in mathematics at the time, so he thought his knowledge on the subject would make him an excellent math teacher. He was wrong. “Actually,” he admitted with a laugh, “I was not really good at it.” Despite having subpar teaching skills back then, Horvat had a lot of fun working with the kids. So much so that it marked the beginning of an almost 20-year career in education, which has now brought him to Redmond where he is the new head of school for The Overlake School.

“They see themselves as being part of the community they live in,” he said about the former Overlake students.

Horvat was selected and accepted the position in November 2011 and in preparing for his move, said he and Grijalva spoke frequently so he was kept in the loop. Although he said Overlake is an ideal place for a firsttime head of school, Horvat did not make his decision lightly. He discussed things with his wife, who is a writer and works for charter schools in the Bronx of New York and nonprofit charter schools in California, and said he wouldn’t have accepted the position if she said no. The couple also had to consider moving their two sons, who will enter the sixth and first grades, to a very different part of the country. “Both of my sons were very much city dwellers,” said Horvat, whose oldest son will be attending Overlake this fall. Horvat said he has lived in urban cities since he was 18 or 19 so moving to an area with so much green space, which he described as “really beautiful, stunningly beautiful,” has taken some getting used to. Classes at Overlake begin Aug. 27.

“While he was not previously a head of school, he has taken every opportunity to prepare himself for this major responsibility and I have every confidence that he will be a terrific steward in this next stage of Overlake’s development.” Grijalva said as the outgoing head of school he was not involved in selecting his successor, but he did meet the finalists so he could answer any questions they had about Overlake and provide information as they made their decisions on whether they wanted to be considered for the job.

August 17, 2012 [3] [ JASON from page 1] But in April 2011, at the age of 10, Jason’s heart began to give out on him. “Literally just one day, he was fine and the next day, he was very lethargic and wanted to sleep,” Janet said. “It was very obvious he was very sick.” She said a sure sign that something was wrong was when Jason passed on playing video games, one of his favorite hobbies. The cardiology team at Seattle Children’s Hospital performed a cardiac catheterization procedure to see what was wrong, but Jason went into cardiac arrest in the middle of the procedure and came “very close to dying,” Janet said. This also resulted in a few strokes, which paralyzed the left side of Jason’s body. Janet said her son has made amazing progress and has relearned to walk. Despite this, Jason’s health is still shaky: He has been in and out of the hospital up until February of this year due to seizures, neurological issues and more and now wears a medical pump on his back with an IV that helps his heart work while he waits for a heart transplant. Janet’s parents from North Carolina have also moved in with them and her father tutors Jason as his health prevents him from attending school. Before this,

From left, Commander Erik Scairpon, Officer Bill Corson, Nicole Perry, RPD records specialist, Commander Tim Gately and Officer Jeremy Sandin.

Thursday’s Chief for a Day event is just one aspect of the program. Before this culminating event, which happens every two years, officers from participating agencies spend a year with the children and their families. From helping with groceries to hanging out with the children at home

to visiting them in the hospital, the officers are there for the children and their families in whatever capacity they’re needed. “It’s one of the best things of being an officer,” said Redmond officer Jon Barnett, who has participated in the program since 2006. “It’s one of the most rewarding things I’ve done as a police officer in 10 years.” Jason has enjoyed his time with Barnett during the past year as well.

“It’s been good,” he said. The two have spent a lot of time playing various

video games and Jason even received a flatscreen TV from Barnett and the RPD

so he can enjoy his hobby in his room. Barnett said although Chief for a Day is a oneyear program for the children, it goes beyond that for him as he plans to visit with Jason and his family after this as well. “I still keep in contact with our past ‘chiefs,’” he said of his commitment to the kids he meets. Through his time with Barnett, Jason has seen the inside of a squad car, met Redmond’s police dog Vadar and said he has learned a lot of different things about being a police officer. This knowledge has Gibson, who has met Jason a couple of times, a little worried about his job security and future with RPD. “Jason is a sharp little guy,” Gibson said. “I might have a challenge on my hands.” But it appears that he doesn’t have much to worry about yet as Jason has other plans for his future. “I want to be an artist and a drummer,” he said.

Keep parks for everyone


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 visits 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.

We welcome the news that the Lake Washington School District is moving forward with steps to reduce the out-of-control overcrowding at Rosa Parks Elementary in Redmond Ridge. Our community has watched and waited patiently for district action as enrollment has skyrocketed toward 800 students and a record 10 portables – contrast that with nearby Wilder Elementary, which has a declining student population in the low 300s and 12 empty classrooms. At Rosa Parks, portables have increased the number of classrooms, but crowded and over scheduled shared spaces such as the gym, commons, playground and pods designed for small-group instruction remain restrictive at the school’s current massive size. As a result, students miss out on the many expanded learning opportunities that these areas could otherwise provide. New superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce now has the opportunity to lead the way to a short-term solution that improves the learning environment across the entire student population at a smaller, more manageable Rosa Parks. We encourage the school community to get involved this fall, as Dr. Pierce seeks input at a meeting to be held at the school in late September. Working together, we’re hopeful the district will arrive

quickly at a solution to bring Rosa Parks’ enrollment in line with its original building capacity and enable more opportunities for student learning and meaningful connections with others at the school. We trust that long-overdue relief is on the way for 2013-14, and ask the community’s support in getting there. Beth Zimmerman, Karen Swenson and Julianne Bogaty, Redmond Ridge residents

Students deserve a better school environment As a grandparent of a Rosa Park Elementary School student and a retired elementary teacher, I am dismayed by the growing school population of nearly 800 students. Young children and their parents need and deserve an effective and nurturing school environment, which is very difficult to provide in a school that is “bursting at the seams.” I am concerned for the students, teachers, specialists, aides and administrative staff struggling on a daily basis to do their best against such odds. Having taught in portables I know the physical limitations of no pod space for pull-out of students for remedial, enrichment and small group activities, plus the inconvenience of long, unsupervised, often rainy trips to the bathrooms. With ten portables taking up needed playground space and too many students recess becomes more frenetic and dangerous, instead of the constructive downtime and physical exercise break it is intended to

be. Crowded and noisy hallways and bathrooms are also a concern, as are overcrowded assemblies. Our society has a real need for a feeling of belonging which a school community with a reasonable student population provides. Over-crowding is dehumanizing and over-stimulating to children’s sensibilities with more chance for students, especially isolated/loner students, to be lost in the shuffle. Also, after school activities, family events and parking are impacted in a negative way. The Lake Washington School District and the school board are in a position of responsibility for facing head-on the unacceptable student population at Rosa Parks Elementary. An obvious and effective solution is to fully utilize Wilder Elementary, which is underpopulated by 200 students and is very adjacent to Rosa Parks and more so to Redmond Ridge East. My own children were transferred to other schools because of overcrowding which I was against, but they adjusted easily. The parents are the ones that have the problem adjusting to their kids going to another school, but they are also thinking adults who should be able “to see the big picture” that overcrowding needs to be addressed. Of course parents are not in charge of the daily education and sense of well-being of 800 students, but the district and board are. Rosa Parks is a historic figure who stood up for individual rights, just as the district and parents working together need to proactively stand up for students’ rights to a qual-

ity education in an optimal school setting. Sharon Pagel, Woodinville

Developer needs to take responsibility I read with interest the article about overcrowding at Rosa Parks Elementary. As a former parent, grandparent and staff member at Emily Dickinson Elementary, I can sympathize. At issue here seems to be the responsibility of the developer of the entire community that is Redmond Ridge. When this massive housing development was approved, supposedly the developer would be responsible for infrastructure, including road improvements and schools. Instead, for years, Dickinson absorbed the new students from Redmond Ridge. When finally Rosa Parks was built, was it with developer money? Don’t believe so … nor does it appear that any new school will be paid for by the developer(s) of Redmond Ridge. Why should the school district, already strapped for cash, have to build more schools when this should be the responsibility of those who built the bazillion homes out there? Why don’t the parents, who are rightly concerned, take this up with these people and not the district? Was not this the agreement under which this “planned community” was allowed to be built?

While a dollar amount cannot be attached to some experiences, any Tooth Fairy will tell you that some “priceless” experiences must be measured in monetary terms. Some Tooth Fairies are so overwhelmed with the loss of a child’s first tooth that they might leave enough paper currency under the pillow to pay for a new silk pillow case. Other tooth fairies are more down-to-earth. According to a recent survey, like many things, a “baby” tooth’s worth is linked with the health of the economy. In 2008, after the stock market took a big hit, the average Tooth Fairy gift was $1.88 per tooth before recovering to $2.52 in 2010. Last year, the lost tooth bounty amounted to $2.10. P.S. According to conventional Tooth Fairy wisdom, silver dollars not only pack more bang for the buck, they are easier to slip under sleeping heads than ordinary paper dollars. Our passion is to assist our patients to reveal a healthy, beautiful smile in a relaxed atmosphere.

...Healthy Living When your body runs hot, you need salt to stay hydrated rehydration with only water can produce hyponatremia, which is a true medical emergency. Hyponatremia symptoms are similar to those of heat exhaustion and heat stroke and can often be overlooked. Symptoms range from mild to severe and can include nausea, muscle cramps, disorientation, confusion, seizures, coma and death. In 2002, a healthy 28-year-old runner collapsed and died during the Boston Marathon as a result of hyponatremia. According to the British Medical Journal, 16 runners have died as a result of too little sodium and overhydration and another 1,600 have become seriously ill. It is true that water intoxication is more commonly seen among extreme athletes, but older individuals are also at high risk for several reasons. As we age, our kidneys become less efficient at conserving salt when the body is stressed and common medications such as diuretics greatly increase that risk. That’s why, during severe high temperatures, news accounts most often refer to elderly victims of the heat. Ideally, anyone doing fitness exercising should drink eight to 12 ounces of fluid every 15 to 20 minutes during a session. If exercising exceeds an hour, a beverage

that contains salt and an energy carbohydrate is far superior to plain water. The recommended concentration of salt in a fluid replacement beverage is 1/4 teaspoon per liter. Most sports drinks contain salt, although the amount is not quite that high. Anyone can make an alternative to commercial fluid replacement beverages easily by adding 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt per liter or 32 ounces of water. Both dehydration and sodium losses negatively affect athletic performance. However, it is difficult to differentiate between the two because they occur simultaneously and have similar negative consequences. Dehydration, resulting from the difference between the amount of fluid lost and the amount taken in during exercise is the most common cause of heat-related illness in athletes. Remember, water alone may not be sufficient and could actually increase your risk of severe heat-related injuries. So the next time you’re exercising, drink a lot of water to beat the workout heat, but also up your intake of electrolytes, particularly sodium and potassium. Learn more about staying hydrated by visiting the Salt Guru’s YouTube channel. Courtesy of


Every day, more and more Americans are motivated to start exercise programs. And while few will ever attain the fitness of an all-star athlete, we can all benefit from increased physical activity and improved health. However, regardless of your level of activity, you still need to maintain good hydration. Physical fitness is a state of good health resulting from regular exercise and good nutrition. When you exercise, your body’s metabolism works at a much higher rate, breaking down and regenerating tissues and creating waste metabolites that need to be flushed out of your system. That’s why the universal recommendation is to drink great amounts of water when you’re working out. But you need more than just water for proper hydration. “You must also replace the sodium and potassium along with the water, says Dr. David McCarron, adjunct professor at University of California Davis. “This is why athletes drink sports drinks rather than just water.

...Healthy Living

Turn Health into Wealth: Five ways to take charge of your health and increase your bottom line Put your money where your mouth is Poor oral health is often a signal of bigger health problems. The same bacteria that causes gum disease has been implicated in other major health problems such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and premature births, all of which can require expensive and ongoing care. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice a day with a toothbrush that is replaced every three to four months and flossing every day, an investment that will cost as little as $15 a year.

Invest in prevention Get health screenings as advised and prevent illness with vaccines. What you spend on an annual flu shot will more than make up for costs you incur on over the counter medications, doctor’s visits, and lost wages if you get sick. Likewise, an annual membership to a fitness center can cost as little as $50 a month, but being inactive and overweight costs significantly more: an additional $1,152 in medical expenses if you’re an obese man and $3,613 more if you’re an obese woman, according to a study published in the Journal of Health Economics.

Stop spending on sugar Your sweet tooth is very, very expensive. Saving anywhere from $5 to $20 a week that you’d normally spend on sugary treats translates into savings of $1,000 a year, not to mention the calories saved, which can save additional thousands spent on taking off that extra weight later or obesityrelated medical expenses.

Flaunt your fitness in front of your employer Most health insurers provide incentives for people to take the initiative to get and stay healthy. For example at Allina Health System, one of many companies using Life Time’s myHealthCheck program, employees have the potential to earn up to $1,600 in what they call “Be Fit Premium Credits.” Many health plans offer a discount for people who make regular visits to a fitness center, too. Ultimately the savings can trickle down to deductible spending. The healthier you are, the less you need to see a doctor, which means out of pocket costs go down. None of us enjoy spending money on health care expenses. Do yourself - and your wallet - a favor and begin to invest in better health. Small steps today can pay big dividends tomorrow.

Know your numbers It is important that you know your optimal range for health markers such as blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose. Knowing your health scores allows you to take steps to lessen your risk of chronic and costly diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Not only are such diseases a burden to national health spending, they also make a major impact on personal spending. For instance, people with type 2 diabetes that can be controlled through diet and exercise spend about $2,000 a year. When it isn’t controlled, those costs can escalate dramatically for insulin treatments, or worse, hospitalization. Life Time, The Healthy Way of Life Company has initiated a new program called myHealthScore to bridge the gap between fitness and health care. The program provides testing, available to members and nonmembers, to measure six critical health markers: cholesterol ratio, blood pressure, glucose, triglycerides, nicotine use and body fat ratio. These metabolic markers provide a baseline from which people can set goals, or in some cases detect serious health is-

sues that might otherwise go undetected, even with an annual doctor visit. A Life Time health adviser works with participants to move their score into an optimal range. “Results from myHealthScore give someone an inside-out view of their health,” says Tom Manella, vice president of Personal Training at Life Time.


Health care today is expensive, but there are ways that you can give your wallet a break. One of the best ways to make health care more affordable is to avoid the need for medical care in the first place. More than 75 percent of health care costs are attributed to chronic illness, most of which are controllable, if not preventable. For those, here are five ways to save on health care spending so you have more money to enjoy life.

“We need much more citizen input in order to develop the best park possible.” The downtown green space is open to the public and the city is working to promote the space and inviting residents to give their input on what they would like to see as part of the Downtown Park. The city started a new Sundays in the Park series with live performances and has also installed red tables and chairs around the perimeter of the park to encourage residents to use the space. In 2010, Council approved funding to acquire the eastern portion of the property for the Downtown Park. A year later, the 161st Avenue Northeast extension project provided grading, irrigation and seeding for the first half of the park. The city has acquired “95 percent” of the Downtown Park properties and plans to demolish six buildings to the east of the green space early next year, Sanders told the council. Once the demolition is complete, the city plans to do $100,000 in “interim improvements,” including installation of a crushed-rock path and plantings along Redmond Way, Sanders said. “Next spring, we are proposing to demo those

buildings and do interim improvements so it will be a better space than it is today,” Sanders said. The city will then engage community members during the master planning process while it works to secure funding for construction of the park. Sanders said the city hopes to find funding for the project by 2016, admitting getting money for construction of the park “will take a while to gather.” Sanders said the master plan will dictate construc-

tion costs, which she estimates to be between $5-8 million, “depending on features and other factors including the economy.” The design work will begin sometime in 2017, with construction anticipated to start in 2018, Sanders outlined in her presentation. But the first task at hand is to find out what Redmond residents want featured in their Downtown Park, according to council member John Stilin. “Funding is always a

concern,” Stilin said. “But we still have a lot of work ahead of us to identify the features and amenities Redmond citizens would like to see in their park. With that task complete we will have a better handle on the funding challenges and trade-offs that may need to be made.” Some of the park features that the city is considering are a water feature, an art installment, botanical garden and play areas for children, Sanders said during her presentation.

“The Downtown Park is unique among Redmond parks because it has the potential to be a focal point for civic events and activities versus a more active recreation park such as Grass Lawn,” Stilin said. “I like to think of it as Redmond’s equivalent to New York City’s Central Park, only on a smaller scale.” Margeson said he feels the Downtown Park will provide a needed gathering space for planned density in the downtown neighborhood. City Council approved

the site selection of the Downtown Park in 2009 and now that almost all of the land has been acquired, planning and design work are the next steps. Sanders said the Downtown Park “will be a great addition to downtown,” as it can be a meeting point for special events, such as Derby Days, along with being a neighborhood park for downtown residents. “It’s going to make people see downtown Redmond in a whole new light,” she said.

Sweetheart Mice will be in downtown Redmond Sunday to lead people through interactive games and a flour labyrinth as part of “Professor Pomme’s Pomp and Pastry Paradoxicals,” a three-part series of live performances at Downtown Park. Sunday’s performance will be the second show in the series and will start at 4 p.m. Courtesy photo us,” Neare said. She said there are so many brilliant minds in Redmond and her hope with “Professor Pomme” is that “all of that brilliance happening in offices, in businesses and hopefully in homes is brought to public space.” Theatrical Wonders specializes in site-specific live performances and previous shows include “Lullaby Moon,” a yearlong series of performances from 2008-09 that took place in various Seattle parks and public spaces about every 28 days to celebrate the new moon.

with Theatrical Wonders, said the site-specific performances they produce are different from traditional stage theater in various ways because there’s a “greater degree of unpredictability in terms of audience, weather, surroundings — you name it.” She added that with Theatrical Wonders, there is also no “fourth wall” so shows include the audience as well. “The pro and con is that anything can happen, but in a company full of seasoned performers, it usually works out and often in remarkable ways,” Beers said. Before coming up with a show, Neare spends a lot of time on location gathering as much information as she can. She said she uses her site visits to see what it needs for the performance and what changes — if any — have to be made to meet these needs. “When I’m in a site, my real, first intent is to really listen to the site,” Neare said at a workshop she gave at Anderson Park in Redmond last Friday. In coming up with “Professor Pomme,” which Theatrical Wonders’ website describes as “an alchemical confection of apple lore and homespun delights,” Neare said she spent a lot of time driving and walking around downtown Redmond. She

said one thing that struck her was that there were so many key areas within the neighborhood — the historical downtown, City Hall and Redmond Town Center — but she kept wondering where the center was. During her visits, Neare asked herself if the new Downtown Park was the center. City of Redmond arts administrator Joshua Heim said having performances such as “Professor Pomme” is to get people to answer “yes” to Neare’s question. “This public space is intended to be a signature urban park, the community’s central gathering space and a catalyst for economic development,” he said. “How does that (space) look? And who better to ask that question than Sweetheart Mice and Bakers.” Heim said the city teamed up with Neare through SITE-SPECIFIC, a program through King County’s cultural services agency, 4Culture. According to its website, SITE-SPECIFIC presents new art in new ways throughout the county. Through a network of local arts agencies, nonprofits, businesses and local governments, the program partners in commissioning and presenting site-specific art such as performances, installations and events in direct response to a place.

JOSH SUMAN Reporter Newspapers

Throughout a prolific high school career that saw him garner All-KingCo honors in multiple sports and earn Division I scholarship offers, Redmond native 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 basketball career at a major college program and someday the NBA. But while his game rapidly developed on the basketball court, Keyes, a 1996 Lake Washington High School graduate, soon learned the work done outside the lines is just as crucial. “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,” said Keyes, who grew up playing basketball at Grass Lawn Park in Redmond. “I started thinking there was a possibility I could do something else besides play basketball.” Uncertain about his 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, a basketball-focused enterprise that runs lessons and training sessions at the Redmond Athletic Club (RAC). iBall also is currently running a basketball camp at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center. Keyes began the organization in 2003 to host private lessons for

Kyle Keyes (left) and Jon Kaneshiro play a game of one-on-one at Grass Lawn Park in Redmond, where Keyes grew up playing pickup basketball games and later tutored a young Kaneshiro. Josh Suman, Reporter Newspapers youth players. With his playing days seemingly behind him, 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 circuit around the country. 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. 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 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. “In high school, my role on the team wasn’t what I wanted it to be. 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 five to 10 AAU teams i-Ball fields in a given year 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 college admission, financial aid packages and the expectations that come in a college classroom. “We’ve seen improvement in virtually all of our players who are willing and interested in learning,” Keyes said. “Obviously, the parents love it.” Not only are those parents keeping their own children in the program, they are spreading the word about i-Ball.

tryout in 2009, he had five staff members ready to assist with the camp and program. Only three kids showed up. “At our last tryout, we had over 100 kids,” Keyes said. Along with the AAU program, i-Ball hosts clinics and camps that bring in more than 100 youngsters of all skill levels every month, including current programs through the cities of Redmond and Bellevue. 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 of the possibility of getting back on the road to the pros. “We’ll see what happens with it.” Regardless of how he fares at the tryouts, Keyes knows one thing for certain. When he walks away from the game again, he will already have a plan.

Steve Kulchin passed away at his most beloved mountain cabin, high amongst the hills of Ellensburg, Washington. Steve will be remembered for his relentless sharing, kindness, and respect. Steve found peace in his beautiful wife Kathleen and his three wonderful children Joshua, Jacob, and Sarah. Steve impacted more people than he could have ever imagined. He was an adored man that not only touched the lives of his family and friends, but also enriched those lives for the better. His continuous passion in the drilling industry led him to create Kulchin Foundation Drilling with a devoted family of coworkers. At the heart of this esteemed company lies an inexplicable dynamic of caring. The memorial service will be held at 1:00PM on Friday, August 17th at Timberlake Church, 4505 236th Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98053. In lieu of flowers the family requests you make a donation in Steve’s memory to the B.O.K. Ranch of Redwood City, CA at 664715

Music festival showcases up-and-coming bands Samantha Pak

On Aug. 25, 107.7 The End is giving music lovers the opportunity to discover new artists to add to their listening catalog with its Summer Camp ‘12 concert at Marymoor Park at 6046 W. Lake Sammamish Pkwy N.E. near Redmond. The concert begins at 1 p.m. and will feature 12 up-and-coming artists who are just starting to make their marks in the music world. This year’s headliner is Fun, whose song “We Are Young” was featured on Fox’s hit show “Glee” last year. The remaining artists are Adventure Galley, Husky, Milo Greene, Animal Kingdom, The Features, Morning Parade, Atlas Genius, The Royal Concept, Walk the Moon and Alex Clare. Mike Kaplan, program

director for The End, said the 12th artist is a local band they haven’t announced yet. Despite the long lineup of performers, tickets for the day-long festival are an affordable $25. “This is an alternative to your traditional music festival,” Kaplan said. “Instead of giant bands that charge giant ticket prices, we wanted to allow music lovers an opportunity to discover and enjoy without breaking the bank.” The concert debuted in 2007, just before the economic recession hit, and Kaplan said the fact that tickets have sold out each year shows the importance of providing people with affordable but quality entertainment. “The results really speak for themselves,” he said. A limited number of tickets for this year’s Sum-

mer Camp are still available through Ticketmaster, but Kaplan said they are on track to sell out as well. Summer Camp is part of End Music Discovery — a cornerstone of the Seattlearea radio station that Kaplan said is “sewn into the fabric of (their) brand.” “Nothing really beats the experience of being part of discovering what’s next in music,” he said. “We’ve also always felt the best part of any music festival is finding the hidden gems and being on the forefront of what others will come to know and love…there’s no better feeling knowing the bands we discover and love also become our listeners’ favorite passions.” Previous Summer Camp artists include MGMT, AWOLNATION, Neon Trees, The Naked and Famous and Matisyahu.
