Community remembers beloved LW coach Watson guided Kang softball team to state tournament BY TIM WATANABE

BY BILL CHRISTIANSON

T

he Lake Washington High School and local softball communities suffered a great loss Aug. 17 when Mike Watson, who coached the Kangs to a Class 3A state tournament berth last spring, died after suffering a heart attack while driving. According to the “Team Kellie” Facebook page, Watson was taken to Swedish Hospital in Edmonds, where he underwent a 24-hour cooling treatment to help with brain trauma from the accident. In the early morning hours, Watson suffered a second heart attack and could not be revived. The Facebook page was set up in support of Watson’s wife Kellie, as she battles ovarian cancer. The 48-year-old Watson, who had coached fastpitch softball for more than 15 years, took over the head coaching position at Lake Washington after one of his closest friends, Troy Hennum, was placed on administrative leave just after the season started. Hennum’s longtime goal was to turn the Kangs’ fastpitch program around and into a yearly contender in the tough Kingco conference. He had no doubts about who his assistant would be when he was

Former Kangs softball head coach Mike Watson died of a heart attack Aug. 17. Watson guided the Lake Washington team to its second state softball tournament appearance since 2000 last spring. CONTRIBUTED PHOTO hired on as head coach in 2011. “Mike had extremely strong knowledge of the game, but with that I knew he would gain the respect of the players and the community,” Hennum said. “Mike was a coach who worked hard at the sport 12 months a year, not just three. When Mike took over the Kangs, I knew it was go-

ing to be fine.” With Watson at the helm, Kangs’ athletic director George Crowder marveled at Watson’s ability to connect with the girls on the team. “He was well-liked, always positive with the girls, carried himself well, and knew the game of softball well,” Crowder recalled,

who was the head fastpitch coach at Eastlake High in Sammamish for 16 years. “I had a tremendous amount of respect for him, I loved his demeanor in the dugout. Kids really cared for him.”

Woman pleads ‘absolutely not guilty’ in fatal crash on Juanita Drive Judge allows defendant to be shielded from media during hearing BY MATT PHELPS AND RAECHEL DAWSON Kirkland Reporter

Kirkland resident Kelly Ann Hudson, 42, pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular homicide and three counts of vehicular assault Aug. 23 in King County Superior Court. The charges stem from a car wreck that killed an 81-year-old Kirkland woman and injured three on Juanita Drive. Hudson, who was dressed in an orange jumpsuit with blonde hair, told the judge that she was “absolutely not guilty.” “I think there was a tick of arrogance in that statement,” said Tom Kamm, nephew of Joyce Parsons who was killed in the wreck. “This is frustrating because no one

wins in this. This type of thing is out of control in our society... We need to keep educating people on this and I know all of the families feel this way.” Hudson has been in King County Jail on a $500,000 bond since her arrest. In a rare ruling, Judge Ronald Kessle allowed her lawyer, Scott E. Wonder, to shield her from the media and others in court. Wonder held a thin white sheet of Styrofoam between his client’s upper torso and face and those in attendance for her arraignment. Hudson reportedly does not want her children to see her in the papers or on television. [ more CRASH page 2 ]

The Lake Washington School District avoided another round of major state cuts to its 2012-13 budget while creating a stable spending plan that continues a crucial cushion for possible future shortfalls. The LWSD board of directors unanimously approved a $238.8 million general spending plan and $151.1 million for the capital fund, which includes voter-approved construction and technology projects. The other district expenditures include $44 million for debt service, $4.6 million for the associated student body fund and $1.3 million for the transportation vehicle fund, bringing the LWSD’s total expenses for the next fiscal year to $440 million. The general fund, which pays for the majority of expenses, has a beginning balance of $19.8 million with an expected $237.2 million in revenues, giving the district $257 million in spending power, according to Barbara Posthumus, business services coordinator for the district. LWSD is budgeting for $238.8 million in general fund expenditures, leaving $18.2 million left to transfer to the 2013-14 budget. The $18.2 million in general fund reserves more than meets the board’s 5 percent balance requirement. “We want to make sure we are reserving funds in case there are more state cuts,” Posthumus said. “There have been state cuts over the last two years so we have been conservative in how we spend our money.” more story online… www.kirklandreporter.com

www.kirklandreporter.com [CRASH from page 2] Hudson was granted a postponement of her bail hearing and will remain in jail until her next court date on Sept. 10. Hudson is suspected of crossing the center line on Juanita Drive and killing Parsons, 81, of Kirkland, and injuring three others on the night of Aug. 7. Arthur Kamm, Daniel J. Grieshaber and Jenny Grieshaber, who were in the Toyota Pruis with Parsons, were returning home from an Argosy Cruise when they were hit headon by Hudson’s blue minivan. Kamm and Jenny Grieshaber, 69, were transported to Harborview in critical condition after the accident. Daniel J. Grieshaber, 72, was transported to Evergreen with minor injuries. The Kamm family is now attempting to deal with Arthur’s care. “He is 85 and change so this is pretty severe stuff,” said Tom Kamm about his father. “He has had two surgeries on his hip and pelvis and I don’t know how his ribs are.” Hudson was also suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and prescription drugs, according to charging documents, but results of blood alcohol tests have not been released. Police said that Hudson allegedly told them she had taken medication with more story online… wine earlier that evening. www.kirklandreporter.com

Man killed in one-car accident By Raechel Dawson rdawson@kirklandreporter.com

Todd Bekins, a 44-yearold man from Vancouver, Wash., died in a one-car accident Friday afternoon on I-405 at exit 18 in Kirkland. Washington State Patrol trooper Julie Judson said Bekins was traveling northbound in the exit lane when witnesses saw his Chevy Blazer “suddenly drive off the roadway and hit the pole of the exit sign.” The Blazer caught fire and was “completely engulfed in flames” soon after. Other commuters pulled the man out and performed CPR, said Judson. The driver was not wearing a seat belt, Judson said. The King County Medical Examiner’s Office said Bekins died from internal injuries. The collision occurred around 2:20 p.m. and traffic stayed backed up into Friday evening.

Changes at the Reporter

C

hanges are common in any job and in any business. Changes have been a big part of journalism during the past decade as shrinking budgets mean less staff. But positive changes are in store for the staffs of the Kirkland, Redmond and Bothell/Kenmore Reporter staffs. One of the biggest changes is the naming of Carrie Rodriguez as the regional editor for the Kirkland and Bothell/Kenmore Reporter newspapers. Rodriguez has been the editor of the Kirkland Reporter for four years and has won numerous awards for her work as editor and as a reporter for the paper. Rodriguez began her career with Sound Publishing in 2006 as a news clerk after graduating from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a second degree in English. She quickly moved on several months later to take a reporting position with the Bellevue Reporter, where she covered city news, schools, arts, business for several years. She is currently on maternity leave and looks forward to assuming her new role as regional editor when she

returns on Oct. 1. Matt Phelps, currently the interim editor of the Kirkland Reporter newspaper, has been named assistant editor of the Bothell/Kenmore Reporter, a sister paper covering the northshore area. Phelps began his career with Sound Publishing as the sports editor for the Whidbey News-Times in 2000 after graduating from the University of Washington. He spent eight years as sports editor with the Mercer Island Reporter, where he won numerous writing and design awards from the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association and the Society of Professional Journalists. He joined the Kirkland Reporter staff in 2009. Phelps succeeds Andy Nystrom, who has been named editor of the Redmond Reporter newspaper. Joining the Kirkland Reporter staff is reporter Raechel Dawson, a 2012 graduate of the University of Washington. Dawson joined the Kirkland Reporter staff as a temporary reporter at the beginning of August and has accepted a full-time position with the paper. Dawson covered the Washington

State Legislature as an intern with WNPA’s Olympia Bureau, and her work has appeared in numerous newspapers and online news sites around the Puget Sound region. While at UW she served as secretary of the university’s SPJ chapter, and was a member of Phi Sigma Theta National Honor Society. Dawson will work with Phelps and Kirkland Reporter editor Carrie Rodriguez in the Reporter newspapers’ Totem Lake office.

The appointments were announced by Josh O’Connor, Sound Publishing’s vice president for East Sound operations, with the promotions taking effect Sept. 4. It is nice to be able to announce advancement within our ranks and we believe it shows how strong the Reporter Newspapers have become over the years. We believe that these moves will not only strengthen the newsroom but also the news content that we bring to our readers.

Support inclusion of LGBT rights I was very honored to have been a sponsor at a Garden Party for Marriage Equality held over in Seattle last weekend. It was co-hosted by the owners of They Lobby Bar and was an extremely well-attended event that raised over $20,000. We were also lucky enough to have Senator Ed Murray as one of the guest speakers, who gave a great speech detailing the efforts that have been made so far. I have been very invested in this fight for a long time now, but it was actually being surrounded by a group of like-minded people that really brought the importance of this to mind. This really is a civil rights movement for our time, and should not be even remotely thought of as anything else. There are a great deal of rights and privileges that go along with marriage that gay people should be just as entitled to as straight people, but there is a lot more at stake than that. By saying that gay people are not entitled to getting married we would be sending a very strong and powerful message to people that homosexuality it not seen as a normal thing and that homosexuals are not a valid part of the community. If you would like to stop and consider that for a moment it will be detrimental on a large number of grounds and most importantly for the children of gays and lesbians

but also children who identify as being gay themselves. The news has been full of religious leaders coming out against the gay community and if we allow that to continue we are not allowing our gay children to feel valued. I urge everyone that supports the full inclusion of LGBT rights to take the time to talk to people that are either against R-74 or are on the fence. You can volunteer with the Washington United for Marriage group – they are carrying out phone banking events all the time on our side of the water now. Thanks, on behalf of the whole LGBT community.

Discovery Pass is a real bargain at $30 The Aug. 24 edition of the Reporter featured an editorial on funding of Washington State Parks. The writer suggested that funds for maintaining the statewide system of more than 100 parks could be allocated from already raised tax revenue. As a longtime resident my family has enjoyed many of the parks throughout the state. We purchased an annual Discovery Pass this year and have used it many times. This is a convenient way to help support the park system and eliminate hassle at the pay box. The $30 charge for the annual day-use pass has been a genuine value as we have used it many times over the three-

times daily rate of ten dollars. I agree the state should continue to support our lovely parks, not eliminate funding for them in 2013 as is currently planned. Use of the Discovery Pass is one way to help offset the cost of operating these vital open spaces but it’s not enough. Please contact your state representatives and let them know you expect the park system to endure these hard times for future generations to discover and enjoy.

Skullduggery afoot to get Potala built It seems there is no end to the city planners’ devious efforts to get the Potala project built despite 18 months of citizen objection, two moratoriums by the city council, legal objections and countless meetings. This building is to be four stories high with two subterranean parking garages housing 316 more cars to hit our Lake St. and side streets. These condos are expected to number 143 units with 500 square feet of living space. Potala’s original plan called for over 180 units which was initially allowed by city planners without an Environment impact Statement. After loud objections, the city backtracked and required the EIS. Now the builder, Mr. Dargey, has requested and the city acceded to his request to adjust the EIS to “meet his budget.” Really? An

abridged EIS? Anything less than a full and complete EIS will have no integrity or believability. As to the EIS itself, a comprehensive and objective study to determine the feasibility of a project, an outside agency is selected to conduct the EIS. In discussions with the city they gave assurances that the study would, in fact, be unbiased. What agency was selected? Inova was selected. This agency is headed by Joseph Tovar, former director of planning for the city of Kirkland and perhaps some former city employees as well. Since other agencies were available, why this one? At a city meeting a week ago, a few knowledgeable people spoke to many errors in the way Inova computed the average units per acre leading to a better justification for Mr. Dargey’s project. Perhaps lastly and most importantly the city has seen fit to allow only two outcomes: build it with 143 units or reject the whole project. So...modifications and compromise are not possible. Really? Why? The final question is this: Who has given the city the authority to behave in such a dictatorial manner? Some 800 citizens signed up as opposed to this project. These people live here, pay taxes here and vote here and Mr. Dargey doesn’t. The City Council needs to step up and put an end to the duplicity and arrogance of this city’s planners.

Webster gives back to the game he loves Thirty years after his LLWS triumph, he now teaches the game

For the kids Cody Webster and his Kirkland National teammates started the nonprofit Pat Downs Foundation, named after their 1982 head coach who died in 1997. The foundation raises money for young baseball players who can’t afford the costs to play. Info: www. patdownsfoundation.org.

hirty years later, Cody Webster is still tuned in to the Little League World Series.  At age 12, he dominated his opponents while pitching Kirkland National Little League to a 5-0 championship win over Taiwan in Williamsport, Pa. He blasted a 280-foot home run during that game and helped knock the Taiwanese off their five-straight-titles perch.  On a recent afternoon, sitting in a room at the Northshore Sports Complex in Woodinville, the 42-year-old Kirkland resident and Bothell American Legion baseball coach checked out the TV screen while players from Curacao and Japan played on the same field he did three decades ago. “It’s fun to watch this stuff. These kids seem like they’re bigger, stronger,

Cody Webster stands in one of the batting cages at the Northshore Sports Complex in Woodinville. ANDY NYSTROM, Kirkland Reporter faster nowadays — they’re so polished,” he said. “I’m pretty sure even if I didn’t experience what I experienced, I’d be watching it because it’s a good show.” Webster was clearly entertained: “Look at how big that kid is — Wow,” he said at one point. “Look how he wears that hat,” he chimed in later. Following his Little League days, Webster attended Juanita High School, where his baseball and football teams won state titles. During that time frame, he started thinking about coaching baseball, which is what he’s done on the Bothell baseball scene for the last six years. He currently coaches the local American

Legion U-19 squad, which mainly features players from Bothell High, along with one from Inglemoor High and another from Cedar Park Christian.  Webster has coached most of the players since they were 11, including his nephew, Kellen, who will be a junior at Bothell High this year. While his teams have experienced up-and-down years, he often plays them against older teams to prepare them for high-school ball. When Webster was about 16 or 17 — the same age range as his players now — he started developing a coach’s mindset. “I started getting inter-

good hands with Cody smoothly guiding the teenager to a higher level, as well.  Near his desk at the sports complex hangs a large, framed picture of the 1982 Kirkland National team. Webster smiled when he looked at those boys of summer and discussed what that time meant to him. “The thing that I take from the Little League experience is those guys — a lot of them I’m still good friends with. There’s just a special bond there,” said Webster, noting that the supportive coaches and players’ families were also crucial parts of Kirkland’s success. Each time Kirkland won, the boys got to play another day. Everyone was still together when the dust on the baseball diamond cleared. Victory was theirs, right up until the last day of the season. “It was great, we won the World Series,” Webster said. “But it kind of sucked that the summer was over because it was so much fun.”

Pressure was in abundance during Webster’s baseball days, and he wants to stay far away from that, he added.  “You’ve got to play every day, you’ve got to put a lot of time and effort into it to be good. That’s what we did, that’s how we won the World Series, that’s what I was taught,” Webster said. “We practiced eight, nine hours a day leading up to the tournament. “Whatever your ceiling is, you’ll never reach it unless you work your butt off.” Todd Webster, one of Cody’s three older brothers and Kellen’s dad, feels that Cody’s experience as a successful player translates well into the coaching role. He can relate to his players, both on a personal level and skills-wise, Todd said. “He recognizes a skill set and he wants the kids to achieve that,” said Todd, noting that as a father, he knows that Kellen is in

chronic state of dehydration. This is why many cats experience kidney disease, bladder problems, and urinary tract issues. How do I ensure my cat is getting water? Start feeding canned or fresh raw foods that are high in meat content (cats are carnivores). Almost any wet (canned) cat food is better than any dry food! You also might consider a fountain for your cat to drink from. Moving water attracts cats, encourages

One thing you may not know: If you feed your cat dry kibble only, the odds are he is not getting enough water. Cats are generally not big water drinkers. Cats get most of their moisture from food, so unless they are eating canned or fresh food (70 – 80 percent water) they are not getting enough water no matter how much they drink. Dry food is less than 10 percent water, so cats on dry food only are in a low-level,

We are often asked “What is the best cat food available?” The real question is “What is the best diet for my cat?” Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. Before we can help you determine the most appropriate diet for your cat, we’ll need to ask you some specific questions: • How old is your cat? • What are you feeding your cat now? • Does your cat have any of these issues? – Itching (skin & coat issues) – Weight problems – Digestive problems – Joint or muscle pain – Urinary or kidney issues? We know, for example, that some cats inherently have sensitive stomachs and that the long haired breeds often have hairball issues from grooming their fur. Many older cats have weight and joint issues. And, of course, growing kitties have special needs all their own. Once we have a good understanding of your cat’s needs, we can review your current diet and make appropriate recommendations.

Cowan and state Sen. Lisa Brown (D-Spokane) crafted Senate Bill 5539 this past winter, which was signed to law by Gov. Chris Gregoire. The law provides well-paying jobs to Eastern Washington by renewing Washington State’s incentive program, which allows film production companies to attract out of state investors. Cowan first became interested in TV and film production when he attended Juanita High School in the 1970s. “I have so many memories of Juanita,” Cowan said. “I made a lot of friends there. It was a time where you could be yourself before college.” It was at Juanita High where Cowan video taped high school sports for the

high school’s “Juanita TV News” show. And it was during high school when he got the chance to help direct TV at King 5. Cowan played basketball, tennis, and was involved with the German exchange student program in addition to attaining his pilot’s license on the side. And is now a potential congressman at age 56. “The reason I jumped
