Bellevue program provides students with strong start By Julie Benson Special to the Bellevue Reporter

In late August, when most students are still on summer break, kids in Bellevue’s Starting Strong program are already back in school and taking on new challenges. Starting Strong provides targeted support for middle and high school students, giving transitioning or at-risk kids a head start in school. Students come to campus for a week in the summer and spend their time getting to know the school, meeting teachers, participating in team-building activities, and attending classes. Many of the students who participate are incoming 6th and 9th graders, and the opportunity to become acquainted with new systems and experiences is invaluable. “The program helps them to become comfortable during a transition time that can be really difficult for kids,” said Odle Middle School Principal Eric McDowell. This year, Bellevue Schools Foundation is funding Starting Strong programs at four schools with high populations of students in need: Highland and Odle middle schools and Interlake and Sammamish high schools. Data shows that Starting Strong is working: In Odle’s first year with the program, participating students had an average GPA of 2.60 compared with a 2.05 GPA for a similar group who did not participate in Starting Strong the previous year. Results have continued to show higher grades for participating students. Teachers notice an increased level of engagement and leadership among Starting Strong students as well. “The students in the program become leaders during that first week of school,”

Bellevue Police seek man who raped woman at knifepoint Bellevue police are searching for a man who raped a woman at knifepoint on Tuesday evening, Aug. 28. According to police, just before 10 p.m. a man came in to a local business for a massage. He then made several sexual advances, which the woman was not receptive to. After declining his advances, he pulled a knife and sexually assaulted the woman. The business is located in the 15200 block of Northeast 20th Street, and the man has been there before. The woman was taken to a local hospital. Police are now looking for a white man, approximately 45 years old who stands roughly 6 feet 1 inches tall with a muscular build and has dark hair. The victim said the man was dressed in a business suit and was armed with a knife.

The program has proven popular among teachers. “Word has spread that this is such a cool program,” McDowell said. “Teachers want to be part of it.” Teachers who participate are paid for their additional work time through the Bellevue Schools

Foundation grant. Parents love Starting Strong, too, reporting to McDowell that their kids come home and tell them that they like school now, and they like Odle. “Some of these kids had already been turned off to school by 5th grade,” McDowell said. “If we’re starting to change their attitude and opinions about school now, we’re giving them a real chance to start strong.”

A Bellevue man was one of seven people awarded $21 million by a federal judge in a lawsuit claiming they were tortured by a former Somalian prime minister. Seven Somali natives, including Aziz Deria of Bellevue, filed the lawsuit in 2004 in federal court in Alexandria, Va. against Mohamed Ali Samantar, who served as vice president, defense minister and prime minister throughout the 1980s under dictator Siad Barre, until the months before the regime collapsed in 1991. The lawsuit alleges that Samantar ordered mass killings of members of minority clan in Somalia. “The case was never about money,” Deria told the Associated Press following the verdict. “This case was about having an opportunity to be in court with Samantar and prove he was in charge of what was happening.” During the trial, the plaintiffs presented evidence including a 1989 BBC interview in which Samantar claimed leadership over a bombing in the northern portion of the country. The evidence also included testimony from an army colonel who heard radio messages in which Barre was urging moderation in a bombing campaign, while Samantar advocated a harsher attack.

Quick reactions save life Pro Sports Club employees saved former Mariner after he collapsed during wrokout BY JOSH SUMAN Bellevue Reporter

For the past 10 years, Pro Sports Club in Bellevue has been outfitted with Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and trained its staff on how to properly administer assistance in the event of an emergency. On August 10, all the planning paid off. Around 6:30 a.m. that morning, Bill Krueger, formerly a pitcher with the Seattle Mariners and currently a television analyst for the team’s broadcast, stepped off the elliptical machine on which he was working out and collapsed as a result of cardiac arrest. Noticing a member was in distress, 14year Pro Club employee and Sr. Director of Engineering Tom Spencer and personal trainer Trevor Loos took action, locating the AED and applying chest compressions. The initial read from the AED detected breathing, but a second scan called for a shock and a third staff member from Pro Sports Club, Carl Swedberg, pressed the button to deliver the shock. The AED restored Krueger’s breathing and pulse as a fourth and final member of the Pro Sports Club staff, Loic Sachs,

called 911, with emergency responders arriving two to three minutes later. “I know they are trained, but it’s just incredible,” Krueger said nearly two weeks later after meeting the club members who helped him for the first time. “I’m humbled to appreciate the quick reaction of the Pro Sports Club staff, Redmond Fire Department and Bellevue Fire Department.” Dick Knight, president of Pro Sports Club, said 511 of the club’s 750 employees are CPR and AED certified and the club trains 275 people per year to respond to incidents like this one. He said four or five cases have called for AED use in the past five years, and each time the device and training of the staff worked in concert to save a life. “Every once in a while, we wonder if it is overly cautious,” Knight said. “But whenever we have an incident, we are really grateful.” Krueger, who walked in holding the hands of his wife and daughter, said knowing his own limitations as it relates to his heart condition will be a major focus going forward and joked with a member who handed him a coffee shop gift card he left behind the day he collapsed. “I don’t think I’ll be needing this,” he said with a laugh.

India comes to Bellevue

Participants needed for cancer research study

Study third in a series that has made great strides in knowledge of the disease

By KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

In the same tradition of Redmond’s annual Anandamela festival, the city of Bellevue and the Vedic Cultural Center of Sammamish are bringing the Indian cultural experience to Bellevue for the Flavor of India Festival, to Downtown Bellevue Park. Taking place over Labor Day weekend, the free outdoor festival will celebrate the diversity of several regions throughout India through a variety of cultural traditions. The first of its kind in Bellevue, The Flavors of India Festival is expected to be the largest of its kind in the Northwest. Although thousands of people attended the Anandamela festival last month, there are a variety of elements that will set this event apart. “We want it to be different from [Anandamela],” said Latha Sambamurti, artistic director for the new festival. “We want to give

Additionally, the Flavors of India Festival will feature a variety of displays celebrating the rich diversity of regions across India: a replica of a traditional Indian Village display, yoga, vegetarian cooking and meditative singing (kirtan). The festival also will include a real Punjabi wedding celebration, an elaborately decorated palanquin proces-

Puget Sound residents are being sought to participate in the third installment of a historic research study that has the potential to change the face of cancer for future generations. The study, Cancer Prevention Study-3, is seeking 10,000 participants in King, Pierce, Snohomish and Thurston counties. The study needs a diverse population of men and women between the ages of 30-65 across the United States and Puerto Rico to help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer. Researchers will use data from the study to build on evidence from a series of American Cancer Society studies that began in the 1950s and have collectively involved millions of volunteer participants. Data from past studies have helped establish such finding as the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer. To participate in the study, individuals will spend between 20-30 minutes at a local enrollment site to complete a brief survey, have their waist circumference measured and give a small blood sample. At home, individuals will complete a comprehensive survey packet that asks for information on lifestyle, behavioral, and other factors related to their health. Participants should expect a follow-up survey to update information every few years. The Hammond-Horn Study and previous Cancer Prevention Studies have played a major role in understanding cancer prevention and risk, and have contributed to the scientific basis and development of public health guidelines and recommendations.

YES gets backpacks from Bellevue firefighters Bellevue Firefighters Community Support Foundation donated backpacks filled with school supplies to young teens and siblings of Youth Eastside Services’ (YES) Success Mentoring program. The youth were able to pick their backpacks at a special Back-to-School event held at YES’ Bellevue office last week. This year, 60 young people and their siblings received supplies. The kids are all part of the YES Success Mentoring program which matches youth from single parent households with adults who want to make a positive impact in their lives. The mentors, mentees and family members ate a pizza dinner, played games, and got to tour the ladder truck from nearby station 3. Firefighters were on hand to help with truck tours and engage with the kids. Kids from the YES Latino HEAT program helped liven the festivities with free face painting. Latino HEAT stands for Hispaños En Ación Together and is a leadership, community service, and cultural

empowerment group. This is the 10th year the firefighters have supported YES youth with school supplies, and it’s one of the largest gifts the foundation makes each year. The foundation spared no expense and invested in high quality backpacks that will last, and included the all-important jump drives for teenagers. “School supplies have gotten more expensive and technology driven,” said Melissa Galvez, the Success Program coordinator, “For many of these families, the costs are simply out of reach.” “Having new backpacks and supplies before school starts positively impacts the kids’ self-esteem and sets the stage for more engagement in school,” Galvez said. She added that the Success Mentoring Program is always in need of additional volunteers to serve as mentors. Anyone interested in becoming a mentor can learn more by calling YES at 425-747-4937 or visiting

Getting over dental anxiety can save your smile and pocketbook. NorthBendJazzWalk NorthBendJazzWalk

If you are a little apprehensive about going to the dentist, you’re not alone. Fifty percent of Americans say they experience anxiety over visiting the dentist. Many admit they visit less frequently than they should as a result, and some avoid going to the dentist altogether. These skipped visits can have terrible consequences, and often lead to even higher levels of anxiety. Regular check-ups and teeth cleanings are the best way to avoid dental anxiety, because they help avoid the need for invasive and expensive dental procedures. Your new Bright Now!

What’s happening in Bellevue and elsewhere

Bellevue honors Neil Armstrong

Flags at all City of Bellevue buildings will be lowered to half-staff on Aug. 31 in memory of astronaut Neil Armstrong. Flags at state and federal facilities also will be lowered, and other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join the recognition. “Many of us remember watching Neil Armstrong walk on the moon and were inspired by his example,” Mayor Conrad Lee said. “He represents the spirit of America to go beyond limits. He’ll be remembered as one of the great explorers of our time and a true American hero.” Armstrong’s famous walk took place on July 20, 1969, as commander of the Apollo 11 mission. Armstrong died on Saturday in Ohio. He was 82.

Event to benefit breast care

EvergreenHealth and Neiman Marcus will host Fashion for a Cause, an inaugural fashion show benefit to support EvergreenHealth’s Breast Health Center.

Rodeo, fair not canceled

The Ellensburg Rodeo and Kittitas County Fair will not be cancelled for this weekend, Aug. 30-Sept. 3. The longrunning events were not affected by the Taylor Bridge Fire between Cle Elum and Ellensburg. That fire is now listed as contained with air quality near normal and all state highways and interstates to Ellensburg are open with no fire- caused delays expected. Over the past week an individual with a longstanding dislike of Ellensburg tourism events widely broadcast multiple emails claiming that the rodeo and fair were canceled, according to the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce. Each of the emails purported to represent a different community office or entity, including the Board of County Commissioners, Sheriff ’s office, and the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce. The individual is presently under investigation, chamber officials said. The combined Ellensburg Rodeo and Kittitas County Fair are Ellensburg’s and Kittitas County’s largest and oldest community events, annually attracting nearly 30,000 people.

Author to speak at Unity

Barbara Marx Hubbard will appear at Unity of Bellevue on Sunday, Sept. 9, speaking at Sunday services at 9 and 11 a.m., and conducting a workshop at 1 p.m. that afternoon.

Hubbard, one of the first women to be nominated for the vice-presidency, is a globally celebrated author, social innovator, and educator who is co-founder and chairperson of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution. She is spearheading a worldwide effort called “Birth 2012 and Beyond,” that signals a new birth in the evolution of humanity. Unity of Bellevue is located at 16330 NE Fourth St. in Bellevue.

Botox began as a treatment for eye twitching and later progressed into a treatment for wrinkles and migraines. Now this muscle-inhibiting toxin is being touted as a treatment for “bruxism,” or tooth grinding. The nocturnal habit is often attributed to anxiety and stress, treatment of which may reduce or alleviate bruxism. If the habit continues, the grinding can wear away tooth enamel and even result in tooth fractures. However, using Botox to treat bruxism is not recommended. It has not been approved by the FDA for this purpose and may not even work. If it does work, the effect is transient. It is better to stick with a custom-made night guard that is proven to prevent bruxism’s corrosive effects. Dental guards may take a little getting used to, but they are effective, last for years, and do not cause complications.

Thanks to the staff at Beloit College in Wisconsin, things you remember as happening “just yesterday” are ancient history to entering freshman. In 1988, the staff created the Mindset List to remind professors to beware of dated references. Prepare to become a geezer. To the class of 2015: n Andre the Giant, River Phoenix, Frank Zappa, Arthur Ashe and the Commodore 64 have always been dead. n The only significant labor disputes in their lifetimes have been in major league sports. n There have nearly always been at least two women on the U. S. Supreme Court, and women have always commanded U.S. Navy ships. n “Don’t touch that dial!”…. What dial? n More Americans have always traveled to Latin America than to Europe. n Women have never been too old to have children. n They’ve always gone to school with Mohammed and Jesus. n The Communist Party has never been the official political party in Russia. n Arnold Palmer has always been a drink. n Women have always been kissing women on television. n Sears has never sold anything out of a Big Book that could also serve as a doorstop. n No state has ever failed to observe Martin Luther King Day. n They’ve always wanted to be like Shaq or Kobe: Michael Who? n Frasier, Sam, Woody and Rebecca have never Cheerfully frequented a bar in Boston during primetime. n “PC” has come to mean Personal Computer, not Political Correctness.

Progress made in protection of salmon


or many years we have said that enforcing existing state and federal pollution laws is one of the most effective actions we can take to recover salmon in western Washington and protect tribal treaty rights. It sounds like maybe we are finally being heard. The owner of a Pierce County construction company pled guilty recently to the first criminal charges for stormwater pollution ever filed in western Washington. Under a plea bargain, the owner agreed to pay $750,000 in fines and other costs for violating the federal Billy Frank Jr. Clean Water Act under charges brought by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Between 2007 and 2011 the construction company ignored state and federal environmental protection laws and seriously damaged salmon habitat at a project site near Sumner, said Tyler Amon of the EPA Criminal Investigations Division. “This rogue developer knowingly, and repeatedly, chose profit over protection,” he said. “This plea serves as notice to our regional developers ... these are serious environmental crimes that will be vigorously pursued.” Polluted stormwater runoff is one of the biggest obstacles to salmon recovery and the cleanup of Puget Sound. Runoff from parking lots, construction sites, roads and other sources flushes many pollutants into wetlands, streams and rivers that feed Puget Sound, the second largest estuary in the United States. We are losing salmon habitat throughout western Washington faster than we can restore it. Protecting existing habitat is much less costly than paying to restore it after the damage is done. Habitat protection is the most important action needed in the short term, according to the Puget

Sound Chinook Salmon Recovery Plan developed by the state and tribal salmon co-managers and adopted by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). However, NMFS’ 2010 review of the recovery plan found that habitat is still declining and protection efforts need improvement. We have reached similar conclusions through the 2012 State of Our Watersheds report. Almost three years in the making, it is the most comprehensive report to date on the status of salmon habitat in the region. The report brings together decades of data collected by tribes, and state and federal agencies to help paint a picture of watersheds across western Washington. We tracked key habitat indicators in watersheds across the region to help gauge just how we’re doing when it comes to habitat protection and restoration, and what we need to do fix the main habitat barriers to salmon recovery. We hope the EPA means what it says and that this is the beginning of a broader effort to finally truly enforce environmental laws to protect salmon habitat. That’s a key recommendation in our Treaty Rights at Risk initiative aimed at encouraging the federal government to lead a more effective and coordinated salmon recovery effort. You can learn more at our web site: Salmon recovery begins and ends with habitat — good, plentiful habitat that can produce an abundance of fish for all of us. Our watersheds are living things, and we must stop their bleeding — the loss and damage of salmon habitat — if we ever hope to gain ground on salmon recovery. Aggressive enforcement of existing environmental laws to protect salmon is a good place to start. Billy Frank Jr. is chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission.

Learning history lessons


hy learn more about history, especially local history? I’ve been hounding Jane Morton, education coordinator for the Eastside Heritage Center, for an answer to this question for the last few weeks. And now I think I have one. Let’s start with a brief summary of a story she shared with me about a massive public works project from the past, which, when completed, left a trail of winners and losers. Mr. Anderson ended up with more room for his boatyard, but Mr. Burrows lost his fishing Ann Oxrieder camp because the Black River dried up. Mr. Eitel speculated that in the future land values would rise, so he bought a huge tract of lakeside property as soon as he learned about the project; his investment paid off. Mr. Hewitt lost his lumber mill and sued. The King County Superior Court saw that the county paid him $125,000 for his losses. The account is about the lowering of Lake Washington due to the construction of the Ship Canal – which opened in 1916

– and some of the consequences faced by residents from Renton to Juanita Bay. I read about it in primary source documents – news reports, maps and photographs – pulled together by the archivist at the Eastside Heritage Center (EHC). Does this historical tidbit remind you of anything? It’s a contemporary story. If you disagree, I’d say you hadn’t driven on highway 520 lately where, nearly a hundred years after the earlier events surrounding Lake Washington, lives of nearby residents are being disrupted, much like those of the people described in EHC archives, by another public works project. We learn history and we learn from history when we see connections between the past and the present, between ourselves and the people who lived then. It comes to us most effectively as story. I’ve been reading Wired for Story, a new book by Lisa Cron, who says, “Neuroscientists believe the reason our already overloaded brain devotes ... time and space to allowing us to get lost in a story is that ... stories allow us to simulate intense experiences without having to live through them.” She argues that “we think in story,” which is the most effective way the brain has devised to share wisdom from the past and help us remember and apply what we learn from it. And stories are what the diaries, artifacts, and photos preserved by the Eastside Heritage Center are telling us. All we have to do is listen. Ann Oxrieder has lived in Bellevue for 35 years. She retired after 25 years as an administrator in the Bellevue School District and now blogs about retirement at http://

Bellevue man wins settlement By Nat Levy

Bellevue Reporter

A Bellevue man was one of seven people awarded $21 million by a federal judge in a lawsuit claiming they were tortured by a former Somalian prime minister. Seven Somali natives, including Aziz Deria of Bellevue, filed the lawsuit in 2004 in federal court in Alexandria, Va. against Mohamed Ali Samantar, who served as vice president, defense minister and prime minister throughout the 1980s under dictator Siad Barre, until the months before the regime collapsed in 1991. The lawsuit alleges that Samantar ordered mass killings of members of minority clan in Somalia.

“The case was never about money,” Deria told the Associated Press following the verdict. “This case was about having an opportunity to be in court with Samantar and prove he was in charge of what was happening.” During the trial, the plaintiffs presented evidence including a 1989 BBC interview in which Samantar claimed leadership over a bombing in the northern portion of the country. The evidence also included testimony from an army colonel who heard radio messages in which Barre was urging moderation in a bombing campaign, while Samantar advocated a harsher attack.

A half century in business Art store hits 50 years through planning, adapting to market

Businesses and business people making news

Apple Store set to reopen A newly redesigned Apple Store will open at Bellevue Square at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 1. The store has a new location on the second floor above Tiffany’s, and across from Banana Republic. The space is much larger taking over space that was previously occupied by Talbots and Bailey Banks & Biddle.

By Nat Levy Bellevue Reporter

A lot can happen in 50 years. In the last half century, the world has seen nine presidents, the first missions to the moon, and a series of economic booms and busts. There’s also been Bellevue Art and Frame, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary next month, making it one of the city’s longest lasting businesses. The secret to it’s success: adaptation The owners have constantly surveyed the market and planned ahead to change the identity of the place. When the store, then known as Bucket and Brush, was originally founded in 1962 - the same year as the Space Needle - it sold only house painting supplies out of its Crossroads location. But when the original owner began incorporating art supplies, profits soared, and he didn’t look back. Art supplies became the franchise, the first of many big adjustments that helped the company survive. “I think what we’ve always been very good at is adapting to the economy, to customer needs and the marketplace,” said Robin McLane, who bought the store from the original owner 18 years ago. “It looks nothing like it did even 10 years ago.” Another change came in the 1980s, when the store counted on commercial sales of materials such as press type to advertising agencies. When technology began to marginalize this piece of inventory - as much as $100,000 in merchandise at some points, McLane said - the company moved into the gift realm, and began emphasizing custom frames. This worked right into McLane’s wheelhouse, as she has been involved in framing since college. She pushed this portion of the business, now one of its biggest sales drivers. Currently, the bottom floor of the building features walls lined with frames of all colors, shapes and sizes. The final piece of evolution came after the scrapbooking boom in the early

2000s began to wane and the company added toys. These changes were necessary for the business to survive, as art stores are very market dependent, said David Thompson, an independent sales representative who has worked with many of the area’s largest art supply stores. Much of the history of these stores goes back to a boom in the 1950s, he said. But most have faded as market machinations fluctuated. Technological changes destroyed many others. “Art stores today that simply want

To continue the business for another 50 years, McLane and her coworkers face a whole new set of challenges, the majority of which come from online retail.

Eastside German Language School returns to Bellevue By Keegan Prosser Bellevue Reporter

Bellevue resident Christina Easton first encountered the German language when her parents enrolled her at the Eastside German Language School as a child. Founded in 1971, the school was originally located at Bellevue Technical College. Since Easton’s time as a student, the school has relocated a handful of times - first to the Community Church of Issaquah, and most recently, to the Eastshore Unitarian Church in Bellevue. “The new location is a better fit for our growing needs,” said Easton, who serves as president of the school’s board,

and whose three children also attend the school. The Eastside German Language School offers education programs and cultural experience spanning preschool, elementary, middle and high school, in addition to adult education classes. Preschool is offered weekdays as well as on Saturday; all other programs are offered on Saturday mornings. An official German language diploma school since 2009, the school is also a member of the worldwide PASCH-Net, an initiative of the German Federal Foreign Office. The new location on the Interstate 90/405 corridor is expected to be more convenient for the school’s population, which consists of students from Seattle, Bothell, Bellevue and Kirkland. Easton says the move is a great opportunity for the school to expand, and to in to better ways to serve students. The school uses an immersion-based method of teaching, so students hear the language spoken during play, through music, crafting art projects and reading books. Older students also use textbooks to hone their skills in

grammar and writing. While the curriculum will remain the same, the building will offer larger, better equipped classrooms than the previous location. “Foreign languages are becoming so critical for kids going to college,” Easton said. “And it’s important to give children the opportunity to learn languages that aren’t [standard] at schools.” There are currently 80 students enrolled at the school, with ages ranging from 2 to 70. The school does not require any previous experience in the language to enroll, and students are grouped with others at the same level. There will be an open house at the school’s new location on Sept. 4, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., where prospective students will have the opportunity to check out the new facility. They’ll also have the opportunity to meet teachers and members of the board. Keegan Prosser: 425-453-4602;

Partnership could net new gym at Hidden Valley Park Bellevue city councilmembers have expressed enthusiasm for a proposed partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue (BGCB) that would allow the organization to build and operate a gymnasium at Hidden Valley Park. The non-profit group and the city would share the costs for upgrades to sportsfields and other improvements for community use. Hidden Valley Park, a 17-acre community park with three sportsfields (one of them lighted), is located on the west side of 112th Avenue Northeast, south of North-

east 24th Street and a few blocks north of downtown. Other park amenities include a 140-car parking lot, playground, lighted tennis court, restrooms and pathways. Under the proposal considered Monday, Aug. 6, Bellevue would lease land for the gym to the BGCB for $1 per year and gain community access to the gym space when the BGCB is not using it. For its part, the BGCB would construct and operate the gym. The organizations would share the costs of converting the lighted field to synthetic turf, converting two other infields to

Help count bicyclists, walkers Volunteers in Bellevue are needed this September to capture a snapshot of walking and bicycling in communities across the state. The Washington State Department of Transportation needs more than 300 volunteers to help conduct the fifth annual bicycle and pedestrian survey from Sept. 25-27. Organizations like FeetFirst and the Bicycle Alliance of Washington also will be involved. “Volunteers are key to the success of this project,” said Ian Macek, WSDOT bicycle and pedestrian coordinator. Past surveys showed that bicycle use is highest on trails, bridges and in downtown areas. The highest pedestrian counts were recorded near universities, in downtowns,

near transit stations and in neighborhoods with mixed residential and commercial areas. The information gathered this fall will be used to track progress toward the state’s goal of increasing bicycling and walking in Washington. In addition, WSDOT’s survey will become part of the National Documentation Project, an annual bicycle and pedestrian count and survey effort that is sponsored by the Institute of Transportation Engineers Pedestrian and Bicycle Council. Those who are interested in helping can learn more by visiting WSDOT’s Bicycling website, or by contacting Cascade Bicycle Club at or 206-204-0913.

turf and adding an unlighted sportsfield. The total cost of the proposed project is $9.6 million. The BGCB would pay $6.8 million to build the gym (estimated construction cost is $4 million), upgrade the sportfields and make other site improvements; the City of Bellevue would pay $2.8 million for site improvements and the sportsfields. Previously, the BGCB had asked the city about using Surrey Downs Park for a new facility; officials at the non-profit also asked about acquiring city-owned land at Bellevue

Way and Northeast 20th Street. Bellevue and the BGCB have partnered before. In 2003, the BGCB agreed to contribute $1.5 million to the construction of the South Bellevue Community Center, where is currently provides programs to youth and teens. Before an agreement is signed, a public outreach effort will be launched to educate the community about the proposal and seek feedback, funding must be secured, more contract details must be hammered out, and additional engineering and design work needs to be completed.

Program aims for positive environment By Amy Bachmann Special to the Bellevue Reporter

Finding the good in every student is coming even easier to the teachers and staff at several Bellevue schools, thanks to a program designed to get kids ready to learn by setting standards for positive behavior. “This program is all about increasing positive interactions,” said Kimm Klassen, MSW, who led the team at Lake Hills and Stevenson elementary schools last year. The program, called Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS), was introduced at Lake Hills and Stevenson in 2010-11 with funding from Bellevue Schools Foundation, and has been added at Sherwood Forest and Ardmore elementary schools, where it is funded by the school district. The program is designed to support stronger positive interactions, both “student to teacher” and “student to student.” “PBIS is an evidence-based intervention program that provides a common language for everyone involved,” Klassen said. “For the first 20 Days, the whole school receives the same message: Show Respect, Solve Problems, and Make Good Decisions. As the year goes on, it becomes more specialized.” Teachers provide students with concrete examples for accomplish-

ing these goals in every area, from the lunchroom to the library. Teachers also receive specialized training and support materials throughout the year. “I am so lucky to have such a supportive PBIS team,” said Klassen. The teams consist of teacher representatives from each grade level, school counselors, wrap-around coordinators, and other specialists to ensure every grade level receives a consistent message. At Lake Hills, the team has developed Social Skills and Relationship Building groups for 1st, 4th and 5th grade girls, as well as a Structured Recess Program complete with a boys’ football team. The team at Stevenson has developed special interest groups that target at-risk students, including students who have lost a parent or who are experiencing divorce at home. Further support is given by partnering students with adult mentors with whom they “check in” each morning to set daily goals. At the end of each day, they “check out” with their mentor, reinforcing the positive lessons learned that day. The program has been astonishingly successful. Experts from the University of Washington evaluated the first two program sites and found that 90 percent of all student-teacher interactions follow

From left: Elena Riley, Hanaka Nagashima and Momoka Nagashima. COURTESY PHOTO, Baker Rawlings the Positive Behavior model, which is well above the average. The results from the university are exciting, but watching children’s individual successes is even more rewarding, according to Lake Hills teacher Kindra Clayton, who describes the positive effects on a student in her classroom. “By implementing common language and strategies, frequent and positive interactions and words of

encouragement, as well as a “checkin/check-out” system, this student is thriving in second grade. Feeling successful and proud of himself, he has a smile that lights up a room.” As Klassen added, “That is a smile we rarely used to see.”’ Amy Bachmann, M.Ed., is a Bellevue School District parent and Bellevue Schools Foundation volunteer.

Bellevue LifeSpring distributes back-to-school clothing to needy kids Hundreds of Bellevue children will return to school this year with new clothes thanks to the Bellevue LifeSpring Clothes-4-Kids program. The agency distributed more than 300 vouchers to low-income families to enable children to choose their clothing themselves. Bellevue LifeSpring noted that pressure is placed on children to fit it with their peers and

arriving at school wearing worn and faded clothing can lead to teasing or limit a child’s ability to participate in after-school activities or sports. Despite the effort, hundreds of children remain on the Clothes-4-Kids waiting list because of insufficient funding. Bellevue LifeSpring noted that a donation of $80 will provide a kindergartener with clothes

and shoes. A donation of $100 will give a fifthgrader proper fitting shoes for sports practice. And $150 will ensure that a high school student has a warm coat and boots for the bus stop.

Bellevue School District’s Big Picture School has its first year under its belt. This year, enrollment will be doubled – it opened last year with 6th and 9th graders – and a new 6th and 9th grade class this year means 225 students in four grade levels. In the fall of 2014 the school will have seven grade levels, from 6th to 12th, with about 500 students. The school is part of the national Big Picture Learning Network that features five guiding principles: personalization, adult-world connection, common intellectual mission, supportive partnerships, and shared leadership and responsibility. This is achieved through three foundation principles: learning must be based on the interests and goals of each student; curriculum must be relevant to the people and places that exist in the real world; and student abilities must be authentically measured by the quality of his or her work. Thanks to additional funding from Bellevue Schools Foundation, Bellevue’s Big Picture School is implementing innovations in technology that offer even more opportunity to model the school day into an exciting, cutting-edge work environment. “It’s great,” explained Principal Bethany Spinler. “The staff have fully embraced it and the kids love it. It’s a world they’re comfortable with. We do a lot of instruction around the appropriate use of technology. We’re teaching them how to work the way they’ll work in college.” With laptops for each student, and tools like a 3D printer so students who are studying science and engineering can generate accurate models, learning is real and authentic. Students are writing code, doing programming, and extending their learning even beyond the traditional school day. “Because our students live all over the city,” Spinler said, “it can be impossible to get together after school. Now they can do it digitally, learning tools of online collaboration.” The school faces the ongoing challenge of finding individuals, businesses and organizations

Studies show that students who learn two languages enjoy numerous benefits, including greater college and career success. In the Bellevue School District’s dual language programs, that means students simultaneously can learn English and either Chinese or Spanish. Bellevue’s dual language programs use a technique known as two-way immersion. Ideally, 50 percent of students in a class are native speakers of the target language (Spanish or Chinese) and 50 percent are native English speakers. The students learn together while instruction is systematically delivered in two languages. According to Heidi LaMare, Dual Language Program Supervisor, “Research shows that kids who start out in a balanced group always have a partner to negotiate communication with from the beginning.” In other words, native speakers of each language can provide support for each other, improving their confidence and communication skills. Children who are native English speakers learn a second language by honing their reading, writing, listening, and An unexpected speaking skills daily, while also receiving some instruction in benefit of the English. Children with Spanprogram is that ish or Chinese backgrounds learn some material in their non-English native language, transferring speaking parthe knowledge to English once their fluency increases. Both ents are more groups of children have been involved in their shown to achieve at higher levels academically than their children’s educapeers in nearly all subjects. tion.

The program for a field trip. will be expanded to additional grade levels each year. The dual language programs differ from the Spanish Immersion program in place at several other schools in the district because they combine a foreign language with English, serving students learning both languages. An unexpected benefit of the program is that nonEnglish speaking parents are more involved in their children’s education. For example, says LaMare, last year 17 of 25 parents of a dual language kindergarten class volunteered to be chaperones for a field trip, a number much higher than in most traditional classrooms. Parents across the district have shown great interest and a wait list began soon after the program started. A lottery system is used to select students from the wait list.

BACK TO SCHOOL REPORTER Q&A | Dr. Tim Mills, superintendent of Bellevue schools The Reporter sat down with Bellevue School District Superintendent Dr. Tim Mills to discuss his transition as the district’s new superintendent and the goals he hopes to pursue.

REPORTER: In regard to the diversity in this district, how are you going to work to ensure that different populations are in-tune with the district’s goals? MILLS: I’ve met with community leaders who I think are very representative of each of those particular groups. We open our arms and invite them to be a part of the conversation

REPORTER: What are your goals as superintendent? MILLS: When you think of the Bellevue School District, you think of a tremendous history of being a high performing district – and providing opportunity for all students. We want to say, “OK. How do we build on that?” What are the specific actions we are going to do to make the opportunity even better? REPORTER: So what are your plans for the future of the district? MILLS: We are going to build a shared vision of our future. It shouldn’t be about the superintendent. My job is to learn about our community as deeply as I can, and as quickly as I can. And then, from that, we design the plan for the future. I’m not coming in with any preconceived notions of how to do that. REPORTER: Is there anything specific you want to implement? MILLS: I believe very strongly in a system’s approach. For me, it’s really about looking at the processes that we have right now, and then taking those processes and refining them to make sure they are accomplishing what we expect them to do. I believe that our teachers are a very important part of this discussion, so I am looking forward to sitting

Dr. Tim Mills down and having these conversations with them – and listening to them. REPORTER: And how do you plan on doing that? MILLS: It’s about building relationships and establishing trust. There’s no magical formula to that other than being present. One of the things that I’ve used in my work in previous districts is to provide an open forum – which we’ll do here. I also want to stress that there are so many great things that this district has done, and it’s not to come in and undo those things. It’s about how we build on the successes this district has had. We actually have a moral obligation to every child in this district that we get better as a district in serving them. And when I say all the kids, I’m talking about the kids who need to get caught up in their learning, I’m talking about the kids that already are high performing. I want them to be stretched in their learning also. REPORTER: How do you plan to address this academic divide?

REPORTER: What do you feel is working well in Bellevue? MILLS: We do not gate keep kids out of Advanced Placement courses. Another thing that is in place is a districtwide common curriculum. The district has acknowledged and really embraced the understanding that we need to address the needs of gifted children. I also know

“We actually have a moral obligation to every child in this district that we get better as a district in serving them.” there’s great support for the arts, and I absolutely believe that’s incredibly important to creativity and ingenuity. I’ll give you another strength: the clear sense that we need to be able to have students ready to go to college and on in to their careers. The district is not saying you are going to college, but every student who graduates from

the Bellevue School District should be able to make that choice. I’m excited that Sammamish High School received a big grant on STEM, but I will tell you that one of the things we are going to be investigating as we look in to the future is how do we increase, and what are the strategies that we are going to develop, to actually take that concept of STEM, into our elementary schools. REPORTER: When you were in Colorado, you helped get that district’s foundation off the ground. What’s your opinion of the Bellevue Schools Foundation? MILLS: I believe that what the foundation has already been providing is remarkable. I think there is a lot of opportunity for the foundation to become even more productive in terms of support for schools. And so I am committed to doing anything that I can to support the work of the foundation. Keegan Prosser: 425-453-4602

We are looking for volunteers to participate in Clinical Studies evaluating Clarisonic products. If you are interested please contact us: Phone: 425-285-1795 Email: If you qualify, you will be compensated for your participation in completed studies.


REPORTER: Do you think this mentality is unique to Bellevue? MILLS: Every district has some different nuances, so it’s kind of hard to say. But what I will say is unique to Bellevue, is a tremendous community wide attention about how we can join together to support students. Where I think some districts would look at the changing demographics [of more families in need, really diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds] as a challenge, in Bellevue, it’s not a challenge, it’s something for us to celebrate.

and we will develop venues for me and for district leadership to meet with them.


BELLEVUE REPORTER: What have you found people saying about the district? DR. TIM MILLS: First, there is tremendous respect and support for the district. I think there’s a general belief that this really is a very good district. Second, knowing it’s a good district, people are not complacent. They don’t expect us just to sit still. And third, there is a very clear expectation that our district can become even better.

MILLS: You look at levels of support. What are the levels of support that are reasonable in the classroom for a teacher to be able to do? Then, what are the types of interventions that would be designated within a school, as things that a school can do? And then, what are district levels of support? It really is about utilizing time in the best way we can with children. I think for a district like Bellevue, when we talk about closing that gap, we mean the achievement gap. I don’t think that is good enough for Bellevue. It should be about eliminating the gaps. That’s got to be a long term goal for us.

Foundation provides funds, focus for schools


It is no secret that Washington state education funding is inadequate to provide the first-class education that many in Bellevue expect and demand for our community’s children. The Bellevue Schools Foundation helps bridge the gap between students’ needs and the resources to address them. The foundation, founded in 1979, provides programs and funds for all students in Bellevue’s elementary, middle, and high schools. These funds go toward academic initiatives, purchases of curriculum materials and books, training opportunities for teachers, and programs to meet students’ special needs. A Board of Trustees provides the oversight and counsel to ensure wise financial stewardship. The foundation’s mission is to develop, promote and fund the best possible learning opportunities for all students in the Bellevue School District. “Our children need a top-notch education to compete in our global economyâ€? explained Executive Director Roxanne KrĂśon Shepherd. “The foundation connects community members’ deep commitment to high quality education with the skilled educators and programs that can give every child in Bellevue the education they deserve.â€? In addition to its many other programs, the foundation is funding three new programs this year: Adaptive Technology for Elementary Math, Middle School Innovation, and College & Career Next Steps. The Adaptive Technology program

COURTESY PHOTO, Baker Rawlings will help elementary teachers provide individualized instruction to help students catch up on missed learning or accelerate and develop new skills. Middle School Innovation provides a variety of targeted learning strategies to extend learning for struggling middle school students. College and Career Next Steps provides help to high school students, including extensive support with career exploration and college applications and online tools for parents and students to ease the often intimidating process of applying to college. The foundation relies on the support of parents and individual donors as well as local and international orga-

nizations. Businesses also can provide special help in the form of sponsorships and in-kind donations. Community members can learn more about the Bellevue Schools Foundation through programs such as its Education Connections series. Topics in the past school year included Technology for Academic Success, The Arts: Part of a Complete Education and School Funding 101.

When most high school football programs talk about expectations, the discussion is a familiar one. Coaches and players recite the familiar meme of, “one game at a time,” and the like, keeping the true expectations internal and up for speculation to media and fans. That is never the case at Bellevue. Since 2001, the Wolverines have been the measuring stick for 3A football in Washington and in recent years have ascended to the upper echelon nationally in the minds of most

pundits. This year, the goals are eerily similar to recent seasons: beat a heralded out-of-state foe, finish the regular season undefeated, win a fifth straight 3A state title. “We made a pact freshman year,” senior running back and linebacker Myles Jack said. “We want to make this one of the best teams Bellevue has ever had.” The Wolverines have what many believe is one of the strongest senior classes during head coach Butch Goncharoff ’s tenure, which includes Pac-12 commits Myles Jack (UCLA) and Sean Constantine (Washington) in addition to backfield mainstays John

Nguyen and Dakota Jones, playmaking defensive back Michael Carlson and returning lineman Nick Santa, to name a few. While the Wing-T offense takes most of the praise, the defense has been the defining trait in recent seasons and again boasts a stout front and speedy back seven led by junior Budda Baker and Carlson. After holding down Oaks Christian, Skyline and Lakes last season en route to a fourth straight state title, the Wolverines have the confidence and experience to replicate last season’s performance. “They’ve been together a long time,” Goncharoff said, noting that several of

this year’s seniors played prominent roles as sophomores en route to a state title in 2010. “They’re all good leaders.” It will be anything but easy out of the gate, as Bellevue opened the season with a game against Eueless-Trinity (Texas) on Thursday after the Reporter’s deadline. Goncharoff ’s group will return to in-state play against Bothell in week two before opening conference play in week three against cross-town Sammamish. Perhaps the biggest challenge in the non-conference schedule will be breaking in new quarterback Jack Meggs, who saw limited action last season as a backup, including in the win over Mercer Island when Tyler Hasty left with an injury. The son of University of Washington baseball coach Kelly Meggs and an all-league performer on the diamond for the Wolverines, Meggs fits more readily into the traditional Wing-T quarterbacking mold than did the dynamic, explosively athletic Hasty. While Bellevue has dominated current 3A KingCo foes in the past decade, the league is still viewed as one of the best in the state and will provide a host of difficult tests, including a visit from Mount Si. But if Bellevue can avoid more injuries to critical pieces - running back Ari Morales has already been lost for the year - there is little doubt they will be on the way to another KingCo title and fifth straight state championship, a feat never before accomplished in Washington prep football.

New proving ground for Saints by josh suman Bellevue Reporter

When Interlake’s opponents look at game film from 2011, they will see plenty of departed running back Jordan Todd. After he set the single-season state rushing record, KingCo foes will no doubt be glad that is the only view of him they have to endure. Todd is now a freshman at Central Washington University and his former team has an entirely new challenge for navigating KingCo and reaching the playoffs for a fifth straight year. The drop to 2A resulted

in four straight state tourney appearances for the Saints, but Interlake moves back to 3A for the 2012 season and will again need a top-three finish among its conference mates to earn a playoff berth. Players said the opportunity is a proving ground for the program’s growth. “We’re just out there to beat every team we can,” senior Kamana Adriano said. Adriano quarterbacked last year’s team after not playing the position since middle school, but has moved back to receiver for his final prep season with the return of Trevor Lyon, a

senior who left the program last year only to return for a final run at Interlake. Ryan Turman will be the other primary threat for the Saints on the outside and the play of the two bulked-up receivers will go a long way in loosening the running game for whichever running back emerges from a logjam of contenders, including Ryan’s twin brother Evan. Evan Prince, another three-year starter for coach Jason Rimkus on the offensive line, said the offseason was the best he has been a part of during his time in the program and the leadership has reached an entirely

new level from just two years ago. “The younger guys can really feel it and they thrive on it,” Prince said of the direction from the upperclassmen. Strength and conditioning coach Darius Terry said the turnout in the weight room and for conditioning sessions during the spring and summer months was the best it has been during his three-plus years at Interlake. Players and coaches cited that as yet another example of the dedication that now permeates the program. “We don’t have to teach hustle and effort anymore,” Rimkus said. “They know the expectations.” And after playing in and winning more playoff games than any class in school history, this year’s seniors are ready to take another giant step in solidifying the program they have helped turn around. “We haven’t made it to the Tacoma Dome,” Adriano said in a nod to the home of the 3A semi-finals and title game. “That would be a huge deal for us.” Wins over Sammamish, Lake Washington and Liberty helped flip the script after an 0-5 start last year and another near-miss against Juanita in overtime sent the Saints into the playoffs with the momentum to make a run to the quarterfinals. Interlake will need to down at least those four if it hopes to finish near the top of a conference that returns 2011 state squads Mount Si and Mercer Island as well as four-time defending state champion Bellevue.

Sammamish head football coach Brian Tucci remembers the exact moment the light bulbs came on for his Totems this offseason. Coaches and players were gathered for a spring football practice when Tucci broke out an old trick he learned from his time with legendary Pacific Lutheran University coach Frosty Westering. Armed with small metal washers, each tied to a piece of string, Tucci set about explaining the power of remaining mentally focused at all times. Even when

the hand and arm are held completely still to the naked eye, if the mind is focused on motion, the synapses in the shoulder and hand will fire and cause the washer to move on the end of the string. Likewise, when the mind begins focusing on stopping the movement, unseen twitching of the muscles will halt the washer’s rotation. “They were looking around at each other in amazement,” Tucci said. “They couldn’t believe it.” The coach’s point was a direct one: belief is the first and most important step to accomplishing anything, regardless of how improbable

it may seem. With a change in classification, a fourth season under Tucci and a number of underclassmen ready for the opportunity to mirror their Crossroads Cup rival’s success, Sammamish players and coaches believe the program could be headed for a long-awaited breakthrough. It will be a largely inexperienced group leading the way for the Totems, with a host of sophomores and juniors asked to fill larger roles. “We definitely have some young guys needing to step up,” junior William Beck said. “Hopefully, that youth will bring desire and fight.”

Along with Beck, junior quarterback Terrence Allen will step into a full-time starting spot for the first time in 2012. Tucci said the athletic Allen possesses a strong throwing arm that is complemented by his ability as a runner. The coach also hopes some small systematic tweaks in the offense will force opposing defenses to respect the Totems’ passing game more than in previous seasons. There were changes to the coaching staff in the offseason, as well, with Tucci bringing in an offensive line coach to take over his role with that position group and allow him more freedom within practices. But of course, the biggest change will come in the standings. While the Totems will still face the same league competition as in previous seasons - Lake Washington, Juanita, Interlake, Bellevue, Mercer Island, Mount Si and Liberty - they will stack their record up against teams from the 2A Seamount League to determine playoff seeding. Interlake used that system to its fullest capabilities after dropping a classification, making four straight state tournament runs and breaking a 23-year drought in the process. Tucci and the Totems know it will be a slightly different road, with Lake Washington also dropping, but the opportunity to reach the postseason has brought an undeniable optimism. “We got what we asked for,” Tucci said. “Now we have to do our job.”

What’s happening in nearby cities Kirkland recently recorded its second home-invasion robbery in three days. A 26-year-old man was transported to Harborview Medical Center Aug. 26 after he was shot at his home around 10 p.m. in the Juanita neighborhood. An Issaquah man has become the first in the state to face a mandatory blood draw on Felony DUI arrests. The man was arrested just 18 days after the revised Implied Consent Law took effect in Washington. The man’s driving record indicated he had four prior DUI convictions within the past 10 years, making it an investigation for Felony DUI. Under the old rules, the man would have had the right to refuse the test, but would have lost his license for one year. The Aug. 1 revision of the Implied Consent

Law allowed for a blood draw for Felony DUI without the consent of the suspect. Denny’s Pet World in Kirkland is searching for a missing “baby,” a Cheek Conure parrot that was stolen in mid-August. The staff has hand fed the bird since it was young. The parrot is valued at $600. While the birds are not rare, the unusual turquoise coloring of this specific bird may have made it a target. Redmond will hold a dedication ceremony Sept. 8 for Dudley Carter Park, located at the corner of Leary Way and 159th Place Northeast. The event will be at 1 p.m. and include a walking tour of Dudley Carter

sculptures. Carter, the park’s namesake, was an internationally renowned local artist specializing in wood carving, a craft that he learned from the Haida people along the coast of British Columbia, Canada, where he resided until his early adulthood. Carter has many carvings in the area, including at Crossroads Bellevue Mall.

director PJ Rodriguez drew the ticket to zap Almquist. The electrifying raffle raised $450 and 50 pounds of food for the Mount Si Food Bank. A Bothell man will have a special birthday this year: Billy Idol will perform in Seattle for his birthday. Michael Henrichsen hosted an event – Billy Idol Aid 4 – in Seattle on Aug. 18 as a way to show his passion for Idol’s music as well as to raise money for charity through his Billy Idol Aid events. During the event, the British rocker relayed a special message to the crowd via video: He will play Henrichsen’s 26th birthday party on Oct. 26 at Showbox SODO. “When I received the invitation, I was honored and touched… (This is) sure to be one of the most memorable birthday parties your city has ever known,” Idol proclaimed in the video.

Bulgarians bring rich heritage to Bellevue Choir, children’s school, theater group help many keep in touch with roots By ROSE MARIE GAI

In May, Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev visited Seattle as part of a seven-day trip to the U.S. His reason? To focus on international trade; he was interested in the region’s success as a technology hub. But there was more on Plevneliev’s agenda: meeting the people who have brought Bulgarian culture and heritage to this area: the Bulgarian Cultural and Heritage Center of Seattle, the Bulgarian Children’s School and the Bulgarian Theater Group. While the three groups operate separately, they all reflect the growing number of Bulgarians in the region. Bellevue itself is home to nearly 5,000 Bulgarians. The count is unofficial, but represents a mailing list of the Bulgarian Cultural and Heritage Center of Seattle (BCHCS), according to Mary Sherhart, secretary of the organization. According to its website, the center was established over a year ago to promote events and to preserve the heritage “related to traditional and contemporary Bulgarian culture.” “When I got involved in this [Balkan music] in the ‘70s, there were only three Bulgarian families in the area,” said Sherhart, who also directs Bulgarian Voices in Seattle. “In the past 10 years the number of Bulgarians here has really grown.” An explanation for the increase, particularly in Bellevue, is offered by Evgeniya Angelova, a vice president of the group’s heritage center. “Bulgaria, for a small country, has produced a large group of information-technology specialists. There is a big group of Bulgarians [employed] with Microsoft,” she said. Teodora Minkova, also a vice president of BCHCS, said one goal they have recently realized is to bring

a Fulbright scholar from Bulgaria to teach at the University of Washington for the 2013-2014 academic year. They worked with the UW Department of Slavic Languages and Literature and the Fulbright association to make this happen. Recently, the rich folklore of Bulgarian culture was featured prominently at the Seattle Folk Life Festival. Bulgarian Voices in Seattle, a women’s choir, performed at the festival. It was founded just last October. Director Sherhart is not Bulgarian, but she is an ethnomusicologist, who studied and performed in Bulgaria and was involved in musical projects featuring other Eastern European countries as well. “The one thing I felt I could contribute was to start a choir and help the Bulgarian women to discover their roots,” Sherhart said. The choir is composed of 22 women ranging in age from 22 to 75. They practice every Wednesday in Bellevue. Radost Folk Ensemble also performed at Folk Life. Radost means “joy” in the Slavic languages. The adult ensemble was established in 1976 to perform dance, music and

songs of Eastern Europe in the Pacific Northwest. Radost recently established a children’s dance group and the age of the performers range from 2 to 11. Dunava was also featured at Folk Life. This a cappella group of women, founded in 2005, sing songs from Eastern Europe and the Balkans. Dunava means “Danube” in Bulgarian. “The Bulgarians coming into the community add a new thread to the rich tapestry of cultures in Bellevue,” Sherhart said. She quoted Elka Rouskov, president of the BCHCS, who said that all she wants is “when someone asks me and I say that I am from Bulgaria – (that) they know where it is.” For more information on the Bulgarian Cultural and Heritage Center, visit To learn more about Radost visit www.radost. org.

‘The Apparition’ is hauntingly awful Although I’ve never been a huge scary movie fan, I went to go see the new paranormal film, “The Apparition,” starring Twilight star Ashely Greene. It failed to inspire fear – or much of anything else. In the film, Kelly and Ben, a young couple, move into a Aran Kirschenmann new home in Palmdale. Previously, Ben was involved in a disastrous college experiment attempting to bring a paranormal being into our world, which resulted in one of the participants disappearing and the paranormal creature being released to wreak havoc. Kelly and Ben soon discover bizarre things happening around them, such as plants mysteriously dying and locked doors being flung open. In their panic, Ben turns to Patrick, his friend who designed the paranormal experiments, for understanding and help. Since I had never particularly

enjoyed paranormal movies, I didn’t have high expectations for “The Apparition,” yet I was still disappointed. The movie started out well, but the quality of it quickly decayed. It was slow moving and sluggish with little excitement. The film was very similar to other paranormal films, like the Paranormal Activity series, and lacked originality. It was very predictable and there were no real shocks or surprises. Despite “The Apparition” being a horror film, it was not very scary at all. Devoid of terror, the film only managed to be creepy. Sadly, the most frightening part of the entire movie didn’t involve the apparition at all. The acting wasn’t very strong either. I did enjoy seeing Greene as the main character, Kelly, although her acting performance was hardly superb. Sebastian Stan stumbled through the film as Kelly’s dutiful boyfriend, Ben, without much acting at all. Tom Felton, British Harry Potter star, had a small part as Patrick but failed to bring much to the struggling film.

The worst aspect of “The Apparition” Movie was its horrendous storyline. The plot was terrible and lacked a proper climax and resolution. Most of the events in the film, as well as the characters’ actions, were completely nonsensical or pointless. The story had no reason behind it and the paranormal components were never explained. The ending, the worst part of the entire film, was extremely unsatisfactory and utterly absurd. Overall, “The Apparition” was not a very well thought out or executed film. It had little direction or rationale. The story was atrocious and the conclusion was ridiculous. As a horror film, it failed to inspire fear and I would not recommend it.

5th Avenue celebrates 40 years of ‘Grease’ Sing-a-long-a edition of movie musical to play at Seattle theatre next week It’s time to pull out those poodle skirts and saddle shoes, because the highly acclaimed musical “Grease” is turning 40 - and Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre is preparing to celebrate in style Sept. 7-9.

Evered Mercury Lincoln Long a fixture on the 400 block of 116th Avenue Northeast, Evered Mercury Lincoln was founded in 1957 by Art Evered with just two used cars and a gas station. The business prospered and became the number one dealer in sales volume and customer satisfaction in the Pacific Northwest. In December of 2001, after 44 years in the business, Art’s sons made the decision to sell the business to Barrier Motors. The idea of creating an “auto row” on 116th was introduced by the Bellevue Planning Commission and supported by the local car dealers on Jan. 3, 1962.

said Council Vice Chair Jane Hague, whose district includes Bellevue. “Most importantly it will be a future path for commuter rail options, economic development and enhance our recreational opportunities.” Constantine said he is exploring funding options from federal sources as well as the Conservation Futures Fund and a proposed renewal of the King County Parks Levy. If the council adopts the acquisition agreement, King County would control 12.2 miles of the main line and 3.4 miles of the seven-mile-long spur from Woodinville to Redmond. The county also would maintain or acquire easements or covenants over an additional 14.1 miles of the main line and spur. While possible uses of the corridor are in the earliest stages of development, King County and its partners are considering the north-south corridor for dual use that could meet future public transportation needs and connect residents in the south, east and north parts of the county through a series of biking, walking and hiking trails. The proposed agreement between King County and the Port, as well as completed or anticipated separate agreements with Puget Sound Energy (PSE) and the cities of Redmond and Kirkland, mean the former Burlington Northern (BNSF) rail line will remain in public ownership for long-term use by trail, rail and utility interests.

BC gets $550,000 science grant Bellevue College has been awarded a $550,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund the next phase of a project that is changing the way biology is taught at community colleges throughout the state. By immersing students in the actual practice of scientific research, the project expects to boost the number of students who pursue STEM (short for science, technology, engineering and math) majors and

careers. The effort is based on a program created at BC several years ago, also with an NSF grant, called ComGen: Community College Genomics Research Initiative, which Science magazine identified in a recent article as one of the pioneering community college research projects in the nation. Students perform original research by sequencing the genome of a bacterium that fights a wheat fungus. They also analyze primary research articles and interact frequently with scientists. After completing the enhanced courses, BC instructors have noted significantly greater skill development and engagement among students, and many have continued their science education at prestigious institutions such as the University of Washington, Johns Hopkins University, University of Wisconsin

and others. “Our students at BC have really benefited from the opportunity to perform real research and then share it with the wider scientific community. They gain a much better understanding of biology compared to just doing recycled lab exercises,” said Principal Investigator and Assistant Dean of Sciences Gita Bangera, who created the ComGen project. She has conducted research in bacterial molecular biology at Harvard University, UW, Washington State University and the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). “It’s especially heartening to receive this grant, where we competed nationally not only with community colleges but also with research universities. We definitely see it as a validation of the great work we’re doing educating our future scientists,” Bangera continued. BC has received over $11 million in NSF grants since 1995. With BC’s lead, Tacoma Community College, Ev-

erett Community College, Clark College (Vancouver) and Olympic College (Bremerton) will initially implement the program, with plans to recruit more of Washington state’s 34 community and technical colleges. A recent report by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), titled “Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education,” stressed the importance of introducing the scientific process to students early, integrating research activities into undergraduate biology courses, and demonstrating scientists’ passion for their work and communicating findings to wider audiences. “Ultimately, this project will open the door to opportunities in the sciences for many more nontraditional students, who make up a large part of student bodies at community colleges,” said Rob Viens, Ph.D., dean of BC’s Science Division.

King County Executive Dow Constantine moved the County one step closer to acquiring nearly 20 miles of the long-sought-after Burlington Northern Eastside Rail Corridor on Aug. 27 by proposing the purchase of the former BNSF property. The line is considered the future backbone of a world-class regional trail system that also preserves Eastside commuter rail options and supports an array of utility services. “This agreement fulfills our promise to the region of preserving a public corridor through the most urbanized areas of east King County with our regional trail network,” Constantine said, in transmitting the proposed purchase and sale agreement for the corridor to the Metropolitan King County Council. Under the proposal, which was recently approved by the Port of Seattle, King County would have three years to reimburse the Port for the purchase price of up to $15.8 million. In exchange, King County would receive 15.6 miles of fee ownership and 3.9 miles of easement ownership in the corridor, through unincorporated King County and the cities of Renton, Bellevue, Kirkland and Woodinville. The proposed agreement would credit King County for $1.9 million it paid to the Port in 2009 for a multi-purpose easement in the corridor. “This rail and trail agreement fulfills the commitment of our strategic plan to link together the current trail network with future trails into a seamless county-wide network,”

Learning from life

Open Window School class takes students to Costa Rica BY KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

For eighth graders at Bellevue’s Open Window School, taking a trip to Costa Rica this past April was much more than a spring break vacation - it was a hands-on learning experience they’re sure to never forget. Organized by Chill Expeditions, the trip sent the 15 members of Open Window’s eighth grade class to Costa Rica as part of the school’s international learning programs. Led by science teacher Mike Montgomery, the 10-day trip gave students the opportunity to conduct experiments in the world-renowned La Selva rainforest, alongside scientists from all over the world. Students also explored local culture, engaged in community building projects and learned, firsthand, the importance of sustainability. Founded in 1983, Open Window is an independentlyrun school based on the premise that its students are “children first, gifted second.” In 2004 the school launched its middle school program. As part of the exploratory curriculum at the school, middle school students participate in science-focused educational trips each year: fifth graders go to the North Cascades Institute, sixth graders go to Olympic Park Institute, and seventh graders go sailing in the San Juan Islands with Salish Sea Expeditions. The crown jewel of the program, the Costa Rican excursion is part of the eighthgrade curriculum. Montgomery said life sciences and biology are the bulk of the course work in eighth grade, and keeping in line

Open Window School/Vista Academy students, Chill Expeditions staff and local students and community leaders from La Flor in the rural town of El Pilon, Costa Rica are all smiles after a community service project where students collaborated on building a play set and painting the lunchroom at the La Flor school. During the trip, students embraced the local culture, lived with native families, engaged in community building projects, learned firsthand the importance of sustainability – and trekked though the rainforest. COURTESY PHOTO with this, material specific to Costa Rica is incorporated in to the lessons - with the goal being for students to take what they learned in the classroom, and apply it in the Costa Rican jungle. The trip is funded mainly by parents, with financial aid provided in specific situations. Isaac Ufelman, a recent graduate of the Open Window School, was one of the students who participated in this year’s trip. During his time in Costa Rica, he and another student conducted an experiment involving symbiotic relationships and the effects they have on biodiversity in a given climate. When Ufelman and his classmates returned from the trip they presented their results to the rest of the school as part of Open Window’s annual Science Day. The students also completed a service project in Pilon, Costa Rica - where they worked alongside a handful of Costa Rican students to paint the town’s one-room school house.


While Montgomery said there were a number of things that makes this experience such a great opportunity, he noted the most rewarding thing about the trip is seeing students prosper in an unfamiliar environment. “You see kids develop confidence they can use later in life,” Montgomery said. Ufelman added getting the chance to speak with worldclass scientist was another perk. “When you go to lunch with a scientist, and talk to them about what you’re doing, you feel like what you are doing is important and valuable,” Ufelman said. And while the main focus of the trip is to give the students the most authentic experience possible, it’s also about providing excellent opportunities to learn. “This really is part of their curriculum,” Montgomery said. “This is where they put the science and Spanish skills to practice.”
