City Council eyes property tax hike for capital projects The Bellevue City Council learned it could chip away at a backlog of key capital projects by raising property taxes 4 percent in 2013 and 2015. City Manager Steve Sarkozy told the council Monday, Oct. 15 that the new revenue could be dedicated to priority capital projects, such as East Link and expansion of Wilburton arterials. The 4 percent property tax would fund the projects and a 1 percent property tax in 2014 could provide maintenance operating funding, Sarkozy said. “A 4-1-4-1 kind of approach would be a good way to strategically address the backlog of unmet needs at a relatively nominal cost to property owners,” the city manager said. Sarkozy presented the property tax increase idea during his introduction of a “status quo” preliminary 2013-2014 budget. He said he was offering the idea in response to council concerns about important, but unfunded capital projects. Lower interest rates and labor costs associated with the recession mean the city has more buying power at this time, he noted. A 4 percent property tax increase would

Eastside firefighters resurrect tradition of of bagpipe bands BY ANA SOFIA KNAUF UW News Lab

If you thrill to the sound of bagpipes, you’re in luck — there’s a band of talented performers right here on the Eastside. The Eastside Firefighter Pipes & Drums band is a registered nonprofit and was founded in 2009 by Capt. Don Turner and Jon Parkinson to resurrect the firefighter traditions of bagpipe bands. Historically, firefighter pipe bands were formed to play at fire department functions, including memorial services for fallen members. Currently, the band has nine “kilted” or active bagpipers and a section of drummers, five of whom are on snares, three on tenors, and two on bass. Kyle Wailor, 35, is one of the tenor drummers and has been with the band since its inception. As a firefighter, his department serves Issaquah, Sammamish, North Bend and Carnation. Though he did not have any prior musical experience, Wailor chose to become part of the band because he enjoyed the traditions of firefighter pipe bands. Eventually, he achieved a “kilted” level of playing. “At first, I wanted to learn the bagpipes, but then I found out I had no musical ability,” Wailor said with a laugh. “It is an extremely technical instrument that would have taken me forever to learn. Learning to play music is like learning a foreign language. Drumming ended up seeming like a good fit for me.”

International Community Health Services will open a 5,000 square-foot clinic in the Crossroads area next year to specifically treat low-income and uninsured patients. “There are no other providers in the immediate area that serve low-income and uninsured patients,” said Christine Loredo, the marketing and communications supervisor for the organization. Between 21.7 and 47 percent of those living near the clinic currently go elsewhere for similar low income health clinics - with 21.7 percent traveling rom the 98005 zip code and 47 percent from the 98052 zip code. The clinic is expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2013.

It will be the third International Community Health Services clinic to open since the organization was founded in Seattle’s International District almost 40 years ago. Back then, ICHS served mostly low-income immigrants from the Philippines, China and Japan. In the 1970s and ‘80s, the clinics started seeing more Vietnamese, Lao and Cambodian patients, and more recently, it expanded to serve an even wider variety, after opening a clinic in the Holly Park Neighborhood in the Rainer Valley. That clinic serves the most diverse zip code in the nation, 98118, with large Somali, East African, Latino and Russian, populations. Staff at the clinic speak 15 different languages and serve a patient population that speaks up to 50 differ-

For clients whose languages aren’t represented by a member of organization’s staff, the center contracts with outside interpreters, or uses a phone interpreting service. “We don’t turn anyone away,” Loredo said. “We provide care to anyone. Even if they don’t have insurance, they can get treatment for a chronic infection. They can get care and pay maybe a sliding scale fee, or we can help them figure out insurance coverage that they may qualify for.” Services provided include primary medical care, dental services, in-house pharmacy services and a basic laboratory. The clinic in the International District also has acupuncture and other alternative medicine. “We also provide health education, and most patients who come in who are not insured, we have workers on staff who help them learn more and apply for subsidized medical services and maternity support services,” Loredo said.

US Secretary of Labor tours new BC program BY KAITLIN GROVES Bellevue Reporter

Stacy Cube, a Washington, D.C., native who has worked in human resources for the past 10 years, saw her career start to suffer when her husband’s army job forced them to move every couple of years. So she enrolled in the radiology technology program Bellevue College to learn skills she could use to find jobs more easily following the moves. That’s exactly the sort of person that the U.S. Department of Labor plans to help through an $11.8 million grant to Bellevue College to start a health IT apprenticeship and career services program. The program will involved more than 2,000 participants and help from eight other colleges. The goal is to help fill the “skills gap” between businesses looking to hire trained workers and unemployed people looking for jobs, Sen. Patty Murray said following a tour of the health information technology program facilities at BC on Friday with US Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. “Jobs are open, but people are not skilled in the right

Vote yes on I-1185 to hold down taxes

W

hen will state lawmakers learn? Four times now, voters have said they want taxes raised only if at least two-thirds of the state House and Senate vote to approve them. Four times now, legislators have ignored the message. As a result, we once again have an initiative – I-1185 – on the ballot to reset that standard. Voters should vote “yes” on I-1185. Tax increases should be a last resort, not a convenient trough from which to fund state programs. Unfortunately, too many legislators can’t control themselves – or have the gumption to stand up to special interest groups and say “no” to unrealistic demands for more and more and more. While the economy may be getting better, far too many people continue to struggle. Higher taxes only adds to their burden. Some people argue that crimping the Legislature’s ability to raise taxes puts vital state services at risk. That’s nonsense. What it does is force lawmakers to make choices and put available money where it’s most needed. With higher and higher taxes, there’s less incentive to do that. Voters should vote “yes” on I-1185.

‘Yes’ on I-1240, charter schools

F

ew things are more important than education. Our children’s’ futures – and ours, too – hangs in the balance. So, how do we know that what we’re giving them is the best. Initiative 1240 – charter schools – can help us find out. Under I-1240, a total of 40 charter schools – public schools with the same academic standards and teacher requirements as other public schools – would be allowed to see if education can be delivered to students in a better way. Forty-one other states already allow this, giving parents another educational option for their children. Our state should step up and help our children, too. Our children need all the educational options they can get to be successful. Vote “yes” on I-1240. – Craig Groshart, Bellevue Reporter

Nothing more valuable than time

F

or most, the return of the rain to our region after 81 days of sunshine marked nothing more than a minor inconvenience. After going through the hall closet for a rain jacket or two, checking last year’s umbrella for tears and (perhaps) cleaning the gutters, the weather amounts to little more than a few drops on the head during the walk from the car to the office. But for the often invisible homeless population on the Eastside, the drop in the mercury signifies a months-long Josh Suman struggle to stay warm and dry. Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness, an organization that collaborates with shelters and other organizations to advocate for the homeless, holds an annual event aimed at putting a figure on the area’s homeless population. On Jan. 28, 2011, 2,422 people were counted outside between 2 to 5 a.m. and 6,382 were either in shelters or transitional housing. Luckily, there are a host of groups dedicated to guiding those 8,804, and those who went uncounted, through the unrelenting elements. Congregations for the Homeless, based in Bellevue, is one such agency. Using a three-part approach that includes access to an emergency shelter, a case management system and subsidized housing, Congregations for the Homeless has seen a total of 319 men move into housing since 2006. The 2011 total of 67 nearly tripled the number from the first year. Bruce Borremans has been with the agency since 2006 and has been front and center during its growth. “Right off the bat, there were 30 guys in the shelter and

we were moving people into housing,” he said. The case management program recently launched a new opportunity not only for the homeless, but local residents as well. Rather than writing a check or dropping off a bag of canned corn and other forgotten pantry items, people in Bellevue can now have a direct impact on the homeless population as a life coach. For one hour per week, life coaches meet with an assigned individual and work in concert with the case management staff to provide support, advice and more importantly, a positive and accepting voice from the professional world. “It gives them an opportunity to meet people from a different walk of life,” Borremans said. “A case manager may have a case load of 25 guys. But the life coaches only work with one person.” The benefit for the coaches is apparent as well. Borremans said many of the coaches are former business professionals who, like the men they work with, are offered a new perspective through the relationship. “They get to meet someone they probably never would meet,” he said. “It gives them a chance to help move someone forward.” And if only for a short while, it’s nice and dry. For more information on becoming a life coach or volunteering with Congregations for the Homeless, call Bruce Borremans at 425-985-7233 or visit them online at cfhomeless.org.

Don’t change healthcare benefits The recent picketing of Boeing Corporate offices by Boeing retirees in downtown Seattle is an attempt to pre-empt a possible action of Boeing senior management to renege on a previous contractual obligation to provide early retirement healthcare benefits to former and current active SPEEA employees. As an important part of the employees total compensation package, concessions on salary raises and other fringes were traded for this future deferred benefit. Just because some provisions of current contract is renegotiated and renewed periodically every few years does not entitle Boeing to unilaterally revise the wording of the contract provisions pertaining to this deferred benefits in order to relieve themselves of their prior contractual obligations and promises. In this period where local students are being encouraged to study hard on STEM subjects to become future Boeing engineers and scientists, it behooves Boeing to demonstrate goodwill to the community by being ethical, legal and moral members of this community.

But the abiding love and commitment of couples who choose marriage as the most perfect expression of their unity makes a marriage.

The marriage equality law passed by the Legislature preserves the right of religious communities to consecrate marriages according to their beliefs. It also establishes civil right of all citizens in our state to enjoy the rights and responsibilities of marriage. It is a good law. As a person of faith, I invite all Washington residents to vote to approve Referendum 74.

Honor civic duty by voting Bellevue Reporter editor Craig Groshart is right that voting is a gift not to waste, both for naturalized and birthright citizens. Especially this year, with the presidential candidates offering starkly contrasting visions for the future of America, our decision will have a profound and long-lasting impact. Those born abroad who have become American by choice represent a crucial part of our national identity. Indeed, they represent the American Dream itself — the idea that anyone, regardless of their circumstances, can create a better life for themselves through hard work and sacrifice. Many of these people are strivers and risk-takers, and they help make America great. We have already seen how immigration is changing the political calculus. The wooing of Hispanic voters—an important and growing voting bloc — by both Republicans and Democrats is an example. Both parties must appeal to as much of the electorate as possible to remain competitive in the years ahead. Pandering to nativist sentiments is a losing strategy over the long-term. Regardless of whether one’s family has been here for two years or two hundred years, it is extremely important for all of us to honor our civic duty and vote. Nothing less than the direction of our country is at stake.

growth. The general fund, which covers core services such as police, fire, transportation and parks, is budgeted to grow 4.4 percent in 2013 and 3.2 percent in 2014. “We’re not adding in this budget, but we’re also not cutting further,” Sarkozy said of a draft budget that follows ones that were trimmed in 2011 and this year. The third and final public hearing concerning the budget is set for Nov. 19. At Mayor Conrad Lee’s request, people invited by the council will participate in a focus group on Nov. 8 concerning the budget.

Stop playing games

Now Hilary Clinton takes blame for the Libya security gap. I find it sad that the president has set a tone of the buck stops on someone else’s desk, not mine. We were not told of the security request, per VP Biden. Blaming Bush is too long a stretch, so the Secretary of State takes the hit to protect the president in an election year. Leadership takes responsibility for the actions of its staff – that means Clinton and Obama are responsible. Stop playing games and protect our people – diplomatic, military and civilian.

Wyman best choice I enthusiastically support Kim Wyman for Secretary of State. As your Secretary of State for the past 12 years, I fully understand the qualities needed to serve successfully in that position. It’s not a matter of political party preference. Instead, it’s the ability to rise above party and oversee elections and the other office functions in a fair, non-partisan way. Wyman has demonstrated that quality for 12 years as the Thurston County Auditor. She is endorsed by 66 present and former county auditors including 24 Democrats. Wyman would bring remarkable breadth and depth of knowledge and professional experience to the position. She has been administering elections and historical records for 21 years. Wyman is the candidate with true vision for the future. She was selected by the PEW Foundation to be the local government official to serve on a task force on voter registration modernization. Wyman has received strong endorsements from every endorsing newspaper in the state. Please join me in voting for Kim Wyman for Secretary of State.

Nearly all parents have their strategies for doling out Halloween candy to their kids. From many dentists’ point of view, it may be better to have children eat all the candy they want in one sitting than to eat rationed amounts over successive days. In terms of oral hygiene, it’s better to eat a few candy bars all at once because it is more likely that children will brush afterward. On the other hand, kids may be less likely to brush their teeth after eating one candy bar at a time over the course of a few days, especially if they are not home. In the meantime, teeth are being continually bathed in too much sugar for saliva to neutralize.

Republic Services, KidsQuest win chamber business awards BY KAITLIN GROVES

Bellevue Reporter

Republic Services was named the Eastside business of the year, and KidsQuest Children’s Museum the small business of the year, at the 2012 Bellevue Chamber Eastside Annual Dinner last week at the Hyatt Bellevue Regency. Republic Services, the second largest solid waste and recycling collection and processing company in the United States with its area headquarters and operations division in Bellevue, emphasized their commitment to environmentally friendly business practices in a press release issued shortly after receiving the award. “Republic processes more than 200,000 tons of recyclables per year at the Seattle recycle center,” Anne

Laughlin, the communications and public relations manager for Republic Services Northwest area, said. “That’s the equivalent weight to 500 loaded 747 airplanes.” Republic also noted that it has shown commitment to the environment through substantial investment in compressed natural gas. “Right now, we’ve converted a little over 50 percent of our fleet (to CNG),” Jeff Borgida, the general manager of the company’s Bellevue division, said, “and we expect to have the rest converted within 18 months.” Each truck that the company converts from diesel reduces carbon emissions by the equivalent of 325 cars per day. Pacific Continental Bank and Vertafore, Inc. were also finalists for the award. The KidsQuest Children’s Museum,

the small business of the year, provides “interactive play” - focusing on science, technology, engineering, art and math - for children from infancy through age eight and their families. The company is currently raising $12 million to move from their Factoria Mall location into the Rosalie Whyel Doll Museum in Downtown Bellevue. So far, they have raised $1 million, and the museum’s leaders think its necessary to raise the rest to improve their visibility. “I can’t even tell you the number of people who call and say, ‘I’m in the parking lot, and I can’t find you.’” Other finalists for the small business of the year include Andelcare and The Bellevue Reporter.

Business tax reporting may get easier The Bellevue City Council on Sept. 24 approved taking the next step to streamline the way companies report and pay their Business and Occupation (B&O) tax. Bellevue and four other large cities in western Washington (Seattle, Tacoma, Everett and Bellingham) are working to create one-stop, online tool designed to make it easier for businesses to register and pay lo-

cal B&O taxes, share data and lower costs. The joint effort is a response to state legislation proposed early this year that would have changed the way B&O taxes are collected. For Bellevue alone, such a change would lower the amount of revenue collected by $1.6 to $6 million. In 2011, Bellevue collected about $24.5 million in B&O taxes from approximately 18 percent of the city’s 35,000 licensed businesses. Most firms are exempt from the tax because their annual, taxable gross receipts are less than the $150,000 threshold, or because the size of their business is less than 250 square feet. Councilmembers directed staff to consult with the Bellevue business community and return in November with proposed tax code changes to simplify filing, make it more understandable, eliminate inconsistencies and make the multi-city tax portal possible

Microsoft CEO’s pay dips Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s pay package fell 4 percent after his bonus was trimmed partly due to slower-than-planned progress in the software company’s online business and a drop in revenue at its Windows division. Ballmer’s pay dropped to $1.3 million from $1.4 million in Microsoft’s latest fiscal year through June, according to the Associated Press.

New Bel-Red streets need names

Residents have a chance to suggest names for five new Bellevue streets this fall. The city will build the streets, to include a grand boulevard, in the Bel-Red area as it is transformed from a light industrial district to a transit-oriented development featuring housing, shopping and commerce. Giving the area a sense of place was one of the goals of the planning effort that resulted in sweeping land use code and zoning changes for Bel-Red in 2009, so the city is breaking with its practice of numbered streets here. The city will consider all suggestions for street names. The names may be based on the area’s industrial past or recall its natural, agricultural and ethnic heritage. Suggested names may also refer to neighborhood landmarks and events, as well as something about the area’s future. The streets to be named are: Northeast 15th/16th Street: This street will be a lynchpin and key east-west corridor for Bel-Red, serving cars, pedestrians and cyclists and incorporating a series of environmentally sensitive urban open spaces. Two segments each of Northeast 14th and 18th streets: These streets will be “green streets,” generally located between stream corridors and trail connections, with an abundance of trees and landscaping to limit stormwater runoff. Suggestions may be submitted online at www.bellevuewa.gov/street-names.htm, and will be accepted until 3 p.m., Nov. 30.

Ggrant to help KITH project The Bellevue-based Master Builders Care Foundation is partnering with the Bank of America Charitable Foundation to give a $10,000 grant to support Kirkland Interfaith Transitions in Housing (KITH). The grant will support a renovation at KITH’s Salisbury Court. The foundation’s HomeAid program is restoring one of the 4-plexes at the site. Local homebuilder Murray Franklyn is leading the project, involving its employees and trades partners. The grant, plus in-kind contributions, will reduce KITH’s out-of-pocket expenses by 95 percent. Bank of America has long been a supporter of HomeAid, both locally and nationally. The renovation is expected to be complete this month.

Their product? Colorful, stylized crew socks. Within the next two weeks the UW seniors will launch their line of athletic socks, Strideline, in six other major U.S. cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Saint Louis and Portland, Ore. Sales, which have already reached $300,000 so far this year in the Seattle market The Issaquah Valley Trolley has been restored as is running in downtown Issaquah. The trolley will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays as long as the weather permits. The route of the trolley starts at the historic train depot, 150 1st Ave. NE, and goes north approximately half a mile before returning. Riders are asked to pay $2 per person to help offset operating costs. A 23-year-old man got bogged down – literally – while trying to evade police in Carnation on Sept. 17. Before the event was over, the man had stolen a car, evaded police, caused a neighborhood to be locked down and, finally, was found stuck in a bog and calling for help. Like vodka? Like Dan Aykroyd?

The Tukwila store is located at 300 Andover Park W., in Southcenter. Alaska Airlines has ordered 50 737s, valued at $5 billion – the largest order ever by the Seattle-based airlines. The order for the Rentonbuilt planes is the largest ever by the airline. The firm order is for 20 737 MAX 8s, 17 737 MAX 9s and 13 Next-Generation 737-900ERs. The order brings the total number of 737 MAX orders to date to 858 airplanes. Alaska Airlines currently operates 120 Boeing 737s. Renton’s firefighters went pink this past week to promote awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The firefighters wore pink fire department T-shirts as they went about their daily duties at the city’s fire. University of Washington Bothell Chancellor Kenyon S. Chan will leave at the end of the 2012-13 academic year. He has served as the college’s chancellor for slightly more than five years. After his appointment, UW Bothell doubled the number of students served and tripled the number of degree programs offered. The Redmond Tully’s stores at Bella Bottega Shopping Center and Town Center, along with the company’s store in Kirkland’s Bridle Trails Shopping Center, have closed following the company’s filing for bankruptcy. The company said rising commodity prices and challenging lease economics contributed to the decision, but that most stores in the Puget Sound area would continue to operate.

Kirkland’s Lake Washington Institute of Technology’s Machining Technology program has received nine new machines totaling around $400,000, which helps the popular program further increase student skills in the hot manufacturing market. The new machines are a direct reflection of the booming manufacturing market and demand for skilled machinists. Currently LWIT’s Machining Technology program has 72 enrolled students. Kenmore officials are considering a first-ofits-kind city-implemented toll on the Sammamish River Bridge to fund worn out streets and bridges. City officials say several large cracks on the east bridge, which was built in 1970, are widening, partly due to increased traffic from motorists avoiding the 520 tolls. If a tolling option were to be approved at the city level it would be the first of its kind in the state. City staff recommends that a Transportation Benefit District (TBD) adopts a $20 vehicle fee. Under state law, a TBD may impose an annual vehicle fee of up to $20 per vehicle without a public vote. The fee would only be imposed on Kenmore residents to pay for transportation projects within the city and be levied on all vehicles in Kenmore and trailers weighing more than 2,000 pounds.

Bellevue grad and Denver University lacrosse player Cole Nordstrom defends a Maryland player during last weekend’s Seatown Classic lacrosse showcase. MICHAEL JARDINE, U.S. Lacrosse COLE NORDSTROM: My older brother started playing, so I was the pesky little brother who got into it because he was doing it. I picked it up really quick. I was one of the first people in the area playing and my dad started a team. I was one of the only kids with a lacrosse background and I finally found a sport I was good at. I used to play baseball and I was the worst. I started playing lacrosse and scoring goals and I realized, wow, this is fun, how can I do this more? The love started young and lasted through middle school and high school and definitely now at Denver. REPORTER: How well did the level of play here prepare you for what you have experienced so far at DU? NORDSTROM: Growing up in Seattle, it’s not exactly the biggest lacrosse hotbed. I always tried to work harder than everyone else to excel because my goal was always to play Division I lacrosse. Sometimes that meant

I had to go play wall ball when no one else was. Where it (lacrosse) was when I was growing up isn’t exactly where it is now, so I had to do that extra stuff to get to the Division I level. REPORTER: What was it like for you to watch the game explode during the time you were growing up? NORDSTROM: It has been absolutely amazing. In fifth grade I was on the first fifth-sixth grade team in Bellevue. Now we have first grade clinics. We have gone from one team at the high school to a varsity looking to win a state title every year, a JV and freshman-sophomore team. It’s amazing seeing how many more people playing the game, including athletes coming from other sports. I would love to see lacrosse become a varsity sport in Washington. I was hoping that would happen before I graduated.

The Knights ended the first quarter with a 14-0 lead over the top-ranked Spartans, but surrendered a pair of defensive scores to Skyline in the second half en route to the 56-28 loss. Eric Rodan put Newport on top with a pair of touchdown runs in the first frame before Spartans quarterback Max Browne evened things up with scoring strikes to Nic Sblendorio and Austin Bui. Senior Isaac Dotson put the Knights in front one final time with a 21-yard scoring run, but five consecutive Skyline scores, including fumble returns by Trevor Barney and Peter Stromgren, was too large a deficit to overcome. Dotson was the team’s leading rusher with 127 while Connor Baumann added 112 and Rodan finished with 98. Browne threw for 328 yards and four scores with one interception on 20-25 passing. Barney also tossed an 84-yard score on his only attempt of the night. Newport will meet Garfield in the final game of the regular season on Friday at Memorial Stadium in a 5 p.m. kickoff.

Cole Nordstrom has seen the growth of lacrosse in Bellevue first hand. A graduate of Bellevue High School and junior with the Denver University Pioneers, Nordstrom was part of the Wolverines state title season in 2010 and saw the game’s popularity begin to swell during his youth. Nordstrom was a First Team AllState selection as a midfielder in 2009 and again during the state championship Cole Nordstrom season of 2010. He was also the winner of the team’s Wolverine Award, given to one player each season that exemplifies the mission of the program. Bellevue head coach John Baumann said Nordstrom’s most memorable qualities were his work ethic, determination and of course, outstanding talent. “He was a captain in 2010 for the state championship team and was a driving force in getting the program back to the glory days,� Baumann said. “He put his team first, ahead of possible individual stats and was really the catalyst.� Baumann added that during Nordstrom’s senior year, he barely missed out on an All-American selection and would have made the cut in subsequent years with the number of spots awarded. Nordstrom, who was in town for the Seatown Classic lacrosse showcase between Maryland and his own Denver University squad, took some time with the Reporter to talk about the growth of lacrosse in Seattle, how it prepared him for Division I competition and the perception of Seattle area lacrosse outside our region.

Budda Baker scored three first half touchdowns, including two on interception returns, as the Wolverines raced to a 42-3 lead at the half over the secondranked Wildcats and won 49-10. Max Richmond, Myles Jack and John Nguyen also had touchdown runs for Bellevue, which will host Liberty on Friday at 7 p.m. in the final home game of the regular season.

With the move back to Class 3A for the 2012-13 school year, some of the athletic programs around Interlake were unsure where they would stand in the postseason. The boys golf team can rest easy. Coach Scott Marcum’s Saints capped a second consecutive KingCo title during the regular season with a 35 stroke win over Juanita and remained perfect in the process. A week later, Interlake repeated as league champions at the 2A/3A KingCo meet with a 13 stroke win over secondplace Bellevue, paced by the 75 of senior Patrick Sato, who finished in tie for second individually with Bellevue’s Radleigh Ang. And that barely begins to describe the dominance. Only two teams, Bellevue and Mercer Island, came within 20 strokes of Interlake in the team scoring. The Wolverines, which fell by 15 at Tam O’Shanter in late September, were the closest competitor all season. “It’s been incredible,” Marcum said. “This is the best team I’ve ever coached, top to bottom.” School records for scoring in relation to par (seven under) and strokes (169) also fell in 2012 and six Saints are among the top ten scorers in 3A/2A KingCo. But it wasn’t just the top end of the team getting the job done. In Washington prep tennis, only the top five scores

from each team count in the team scoring total. In four of the seven matches this year, Interlake’s five non-counting scores would have still been good enough to win the match. “It’s not just these same five guys carrying us,” Marcum said. “It is the development of the entire team.” Parsons, a senior, was not among the top six last year but has made his mark in 2012, firing an even par in the waning moments of the match to help his team to its goal of a sub-170 score. Douglas, who Marcum said is the most improved player during the past two seasons, tied for medalist honors in a match this year two seasons after being cut from the team. Interlake will have a week to prepare itself for the KingCo Medalist Tournament next Tuesday at Willow’s Run (Eagle’s Talon) before returning to the SeaKing District Tournament for the first time in five years, again at Willow’s Run (Coyote Creek).

Long time Mercer Island boys soccer coach and Newport High School alum Steve Newman died last week. Newman, 58, served as the coach of the Islanders boys team for the last 17 years. “Steve touched the lives of hundreds of boys who participated in the MIHS soccer program,” the school posted on its website. According to Colin Rigby, the assis-

tant coach for the Islanders, Newman returned home last Thursday after attending the Seattle Pacific University soccer game, went to sleep, suffering an apparent heart attack in his sleep. A celebration of life service has been planned for Steve Newman, the long time Mercer Island boys soccer coach and Eastside resident who died Oct. 12. A service will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. at the Mercer Island Presbyterian Church.

KITH raises $68,000 Kirkland Interfaith Transitions in Housing’s 10th Annual Autumn event “Creating Abundance,” raised nearly $68,000 Sunday, Oct. 7, to help homeless and at-risk families. The highlight of the evening, KITH’s client Nacole reminded guests of the impact of the agency’s programs. “I came to Washington on a hope, wing and a prayer along with my two-year-old twin daughters and only one suitcase between the three of us,: Nacole said. “I wanted my twin girls to have a safe home where I could raise them with the love they deserved.” Nacole told guests how her life has changed for the better. In addition to meeting her family’s needs for housing and practical support, KITH provided case

Idaho. Eventually, the band began traveling to the national meet-up for firefighter bands across the country. There, firefighters work to streamline the music that is played by the bands while remembering their fallen friends. “Wherever the memorial is, we go,” said Marc Hallen. “We just form one big band and put on the event.” Hallen, 46, has been with Kirkland’s fire department for seven years. When he first joined EFPD in February, he served as one of the band’s pipers. “Getting your muscle memory to play the pipes is probably the most difficult part,” Hallen said. For him, learning the music also was challenging because of the sheer amount pipers have to memorize. However, after a back injury made it painful for him to play the bagpipes, he picked up the tenor drum last December. As a tenor drummer, one of Hallen’s tasks is to learn flourishes, which, in his words, creates “the flash and visual art of the band” by twirling drumsticks between beats. Colleen Salmi, 22, works as EFPD’s private drumming instructor. “I thought that they were a great group

of guys who were really motivated and interested in learning a completely different type of instrument,” she said. Salmi herself has quite a background in music. A recent graduate of UW, she minored in music while teaching the Northwest Junior Pipe Band and driving between Seattle and Portland to practice with her own band, Portland Metro Pipe Band. She has been teaching EFPD for about a year. “The firefighters all enjoy socializing and having fun, but are also very hard working. I have yet to meet one that doesn’t put their body and soul into what they are doing,” she said. Band members are not paid to participate in the pipe and drum core and joining is voluntary. EFPD members are required to purchase their own instruments and performance uniforms, which can run over $2,500. The group is funded entirely by private donations and also helps support fire department-related charities like the Northwest Burn Foundation. To learn more about EFPD, visit eastsidepipesanddrums.com or check out the band’s Facebook page for photos, videos and more.

ou may be well aware of vitamin D’s part in building better bones, but did you know it might also help in prevention of breast cancer? Unfortunately, many of us in the Northwest are not getting enough vitamin D. Overweight individuals are at increased risk of low vitamin D levels, possibly because excess fat absorbs and holds onto vitamin D, making it unavailable to the body.

Overlake Obstetricians & Gynecologists overlakeobgyn.com

Bellevue • 425-454-3366

With funding from Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, Anne McTiernan, M.D, Ph.D., of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, has embarked on an important new study investigating vitamin D insufficiency and weight, two interrelated risk factors for breast cancer. Many studies have shown that being overweight can result in an increase in risk of postmenopausal breast cancer. Vitamin D may reduce production of fat tissue, which would result in lowering breast cancer risk factors related to obesity. Vitamin D by itself has also been associated with a reduction in the creation of cancer in laboratory experiments.

We are excited about the opportunity to provide comprehensive care to women of all ages. Our Physicians provide care for women of all ages during pregnancy, delivery, postpartum care as well as gynecological care, at all stages of their lives from adolescence, through and past menopause.

Dr. McTiernan’s study enrolled 218 women in a year-long, nutrition and exercise based weight loss program. Participants met regularly with a study nutritionist to learn strategies for healthy eating and weight loss, and also worked closely with a specialist to develop and maintain a moderateintensity aerobic exercise program.

“To our knowledge, there are no prior studies on the effect of vitamin D and weight on breast cancer prevention, and the proposed study is therefore highly novel,” says Dr. McTiernan. “If positive results follow, it can translate into clinical and public health practice, and may provide women and physicians with additional options for reducing risk for breast cancer.” Dr. McTiernan’s research is just one example of Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s global medical research funds being invested right here in the Puget Sound region, with a focus on breast cancer prevention and early detection. Susan G. Komen is the largest nongovernment funder of breast cancer research in the world. Komen has invested over $2 billion into research and community health in its 30 years, providing $58 million in new research funding for 2012 alone. Funding scientific research into a cure for breast cancer is an important way Komen Puget Sound invests the money it receives through donations. Twentyfive percent of net funds raised is pooled and distributed through Komen National Breast Cancer Research and Training Grants. The other 75 percent supports early detection, mammogram screenings and treatment support for low income and underserved women throughout Western Washington.

“Finding ways to prevent breast cancer is a major goal of Komen’s research program. We invest in research like this to help women get the best answers, based on good science, on ways they can reduce their risk of breast cancer or avoid it all together.” Chandini Portteus

Sounders get a kick out of Kindering kids BY ANDY NYSTROM Reporter Newspapers

As Seattle Sounders FC soccer players watched, 3-year-old Vallory Hurlimann first booted a soccer ball with gusto and then ran up the field as fast as her little legs would go. Lisa Hurlimann kept a close eye on her daughter, who has Down’s syndrome, and rooted her on the whole way during last Sunday’s afternoon of celebration for young athletes with disabilities at Arena Sports in Redmond. For three hours, Kindering — a Bellevuebased nonprofit helping infants and children with special needs — Special Olympics Washington and Starbucks formed a hat trick of organizations that brought families together on the athletic field to play and visit with each other. There were plenty of laughs, high-fives and tears from all involved. “It’s my daughter’s first time participating in a Special Olympics event, and I think so far that it is awesome,” Lisa Hurlimann said about half-way through the event. “I just feel like Vallory’s got a great future. She’s totally having fun, she’s showing off her little natural talent to kick a soccer ball around.” Vallory is a Kindering graduate along with Frannie Ronan, 3, who entertained herself, family members and friends at the other end of the field by waving green and orange flags while jumping and running around. Frannie, who also has Down’s syndrome, was accompanied at the event by her grandparents and mom and dad, Mike Ronan, who works at Starbucks and is on the Special Olympics Washington board of directors.

Mike’s goal of putting on a kid-friendly sporting event came to fruition Sunday. “With the parents, they’re so grateful to have a place to take their kids, and (have) a support system, a sense of community where they can go talk with other parents and have a great time with their whole family,” said Elise Nelson, Kindering development coordinator. Added Beth Wojick, CEO of Special Olympics Washington: “This is our farm team. It’s a lot like baseball, right? — we’ve got to have a farm team. These are up-and-coming future athletes and it’s really important that we build the bridge from when they’re really young.” Older athletes on hand on Sunday were Sounders FC’s Andrew Duran, Roger Levesque, Bryan Meredith and Zach Scott. Levesque, who recently retired and received a Golden Scarf prior to the Sounders’ 3-0 win over rival Portland, kicked some balls around before the event and was joined by the others later. “Coming out here and seeing the kids participate and the families participate and how much fun they were having — it was really something special,” he said. Levesque and the other Sounders were in the spotlight when they placed medals around the kids’ necks during the closing ceremonies. “You just see the faces of the kids lighting up, getting their medal and that pretty much says it all right there,” he said. Added Scott: “It was fantastic. Those kids were very excited — a lot of them are adding medals to the trophy case, so that’s great.” Andy Nystrom is editor of the Redmond Reporter.

Energy Savings with Sundance Energy

Q/A | with Sundance

Q A

How did Sundance Energry get started? Back in 1981 we primarily did solar water heating and pool heating. We did that until 1985 when the federal government stopped offering a tax credit for installing solar energy systems. At that point we had to reinvent ourselves. We wanted to keep the same theme, which was saving people money and offering environmental solutions for energy. What made the most sense to our business was natural gas and it’s sustained our business since. We’ve been around for over 30 years now.

Q A

How does your company promote the use of clean energy? When we burn coal, oil, diesel, wood – all of these things are bad for the environment. They put pollution in the air and contribute to greenhouse gas problems. Natural gas is a clean burning fuel source. The beauty of burning natural gas is its emission is carbon dioxide which is not really a pollutant as there’s no particulate in it. Heating our homes is an essential need for everyone so we really believe the most environmentally friendly way over the years has

What’s good for the environment is good for your wallet!

been natural gas. The new product on the market is ductless heat pumps. They do use electricity but because of its efficiency, they are probably the most environmentally sound way to heat. It also makes a lot of sense financially as it is 3 times more efficient than electric heat and 5 times more efficient than oil or propane heat. Homeowners can find substantial savings on their heating. Whenever we do something that’s really good for the environment, it tends to be really good financially as well.

Q A

Why is your business important for Northwesterners? Costs of heating your home are rising. People need reliable, comfortable heat that doesn’t cost them an arm and a leg. On a cold winter, people end up spending too much money and sometimes unfortunately, they start being uncomfortable in their homes.

Q A

How does the US compare to other countries in ductless heat pump installation? In 2009, Japan installed 7 million ductless heat pumps, China installed 16 million units, and Europe installed 7 million units. Comparably, the U.S. only had 300,000 new installations. We have traditionally used horribly inefficient heating systems and people aren’t yet used to these new ductless heat units. Perhaps it’s a a cultural issue but our outlook is changing really quickly. The U.S. is recognizing very rapidly that this is the future in heating and cooling. Use of ductless heating is expected to double this year we’re going to do well over a million units. Other traditional furnaces are going down in volume every year the

more we recognize their inefficiencies. We do lead in this high technology, environmentally sound, energy saving equipment.

Q A

Can you tell us about some of the awards and recognition that Sundance Energy has received? We are one of only a few companies that have been awarded the Puget Sound Energy’s Platinum Performance Award for Customer Service. We’ve gotten Angie’s List super Service Award for the last five years and have gotten Best of Northshore with the Bothell/Kenmore Reporter. We’re one of the only Mitsubishi Top Diamond Dealers, which allows us to give people a better warranty on their products. In addition, we one of the original Rheem Top Contractors in the state and we’ve been featured on New Day Northwest on King 5 three times.

Q A

What are the costs for your services?

We’re very competitive. So much so that we have what we call a price match guarantee. If someone can find identical services for less, we will match that price for a like-for-like system. Ductless heating can save as much or more than a ground source heat pump which can cost well over $30,000 to install. Plus, ductless heat pumps also double as an air conditioning unit in the summer.

Q A

What areas do you serve?

We serve Snohomish and King Counties from our Bothell location and we also serve Skagit County from our Mount Vernon location.

“We really want to make our homeowners more comfortable in their homes and improve their quality of life. We want to do this in the most environmentally friendly way possible and save them some money in Curtis Dahl, Sundance Energy the process.”

Sound Transit seeking input on changes The changes include additional peakperiod service to address overcrowding on Routes 545 (Seattle - Redmond) and 550 (Seattle – Bellevue) and a new express service between Kent Station and Bellevue/Overlake timed to meet peakdirection Sounder trains at Kent Station. Sound Transit also plans on removing low-ridership midday trips on Route 566 (Auburn - Overlake) and increasing the efficiency of the all-day service between

Sound Transit is seeking input of proposed 2013 service changes, including several that impact Bellevue. The organization has released a draft of the 2013 Service Implementation Plan that seeks to maximize efficiencies on its ST Express system of regional buses by reducing service on low-performing routes while adding service to corridors where double-digit ridership growth has caused overcrowding on some buses.

Chorus offers free singing lessons Bellevue-based Northwest Sound is offering singing lessons for a song. The free program, by Donny Rose, a professional musician, teaches people to sing a cappella harmony in six easy weeks. The “Sing, Sing, Sing” program is the chorus’ annual community outreach program. “It’s part of our charter,” explained the group’s president Bob Thomas. “We invite men of all ages to experience the joy we know as barbershop singers.” The free program culminates ahead of the chorus’ annual holiday show, scheduled this year for Dec. 1. Rose and vocal professional Nikki Blackmer teach three holiday songs and people will perform them on stage with the barbershop veterans. “I came for the free singing lessons,” says Joe Hage, who joined the barbershop chorus last year. “I’ve always loved to sing

but never had any vocal training. I came for the free lessons and quickly got addicted to ‘locking chords’ in harmony.” Northwest Sound recently hosted three nearly sold-out audiences and their fan base continues to swell. “It sets us up nicely for our annual ‘Singing Valentine’s’ where a Northwest Sound quartet shows up at your sweetheart’s door,” said John Ludeman, the group’s vice president of music. The chorus recently placed third in the Evergreen District, which encompasses Washington, Alaska, Western Canada, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. The singing lessons are offered Wednesdays at First United Methodist Church in Bellevue at 1934 108th Ave NE. For more information or to register, visit nwsound.org/sss.html.

Heritage Corner A look at Bellevue’s past

How to win (you hope) an election I

Local farmers survive during Great Depression In the late 1920s Bellevue’s Japanese American farmers were, in the words of one resident, producing “too much stuff ” to sell locally. However, packing companies charged such high prices for their services that the farmers could not make a profit shipping the surplus to other regions. The solution: the farmers opened their own shipping and packing company, the Bellevue Vegetable Growers’ Association (BVGA). By 1933 the BVGA had enough capital to build its own packing shed in Midlakes next the railroad tracks. The most common crops shipped were tomatoes, strawberries, peas, lettuce, and cabbage. At its height, 60 families were members of the BVGA and they could package up to 50 boxcars of produce in the summer season. Heritage Corner is a feature in the Bellevue Reporter. Material is provided by the Eastside Heritage Center. For more information call 425-450-1049.

Vote for the most private & public sector experience

n just a couple of weeks or so, it’ll be Election Day – a time when we come together as a people to find out if the polls were accurate. We expect our candidates to know the issues, to speak well and look presentable. It is not necessarily important that a candidate bathe regularly. This may explain the surprising landslide victory of state representative Felix “Stinky” Muldoon last election. It’s also perhaps why several of the legislature’s meetings were held outdoors last session. I’ve never run for public office, except when I was elected class president in the 8th grade. Only some overdue library books, cheating on a math test, and a bit Pat Cashman of vandalism prevented me from serving out my full term. If you are a candidate for state or local office, here are some free tips. Take them for what they are worth: ■ Get yourself some grizzled campaign advisors – the grizzlier the better. Do whatever they say, unless they ask you to eat more starchy foods. ■ If you run any TV ads, you must wear a hard-hat in at least one of them. It would be best if you were standing alongside other people with hard-hats too, such as at a factory or worksite. Or a TV studio that is made to look like a factory or worksite, where the lighting is better. ■ Safety goggles are a good idea too – especially coollooking ones that look like a pair of ultra-hip eyeglasses. ■ In your second TV ad, feature yourself standing around talking to senior citizens. Appear to be interested in them. However, if you can only afford to do one TV ad, be sure to wear a hard-hat while talking to those seniors. It’s a “two birds with one stone” approach. ■ If you’re doing any ads where you attack your opponent, it is best not to show yourself actually attacking him/ her – especially with a sharp object. This could make you

look unhinged. ■ A better approach is to use actual video footage of your opponent, but shown in slow motion, black-andwhite – and looking really grainy. This will make him/her look unhinged. ■ The slow motion, black-and-white, grainy style does not work as effectively in radio ads, experts say. ■ If you use an opponent’s actual spoken words in your ads, it’s important to take those words out of context. Remember, you only have 30 seconds – there’s no time for context. ■ If you can’t afford many TV ads, don’t sweat it. If running lots of TV ads were so crucial, the woman in all those Sleep Country commercials would be elected. ■ When you are giving campaign speeches, remind your audience that you need their support. Point out that “support” is just another way of saying “money.” If you can get enough voters to give you their support/money, you won’t have to use your own support/money. ■ Voters are looking for strong candidates, so you should try to be one. Get a gym membership and start working out regularly. Focus on the upper body primarily – after all, voters can’t see the bottom part of you when you’re standing behind a podium. ■ And finally, remember that while some voters call themselves independents – many of them actually have a party preference. And the party they prefer is usually the kind that offers tasty hors d’oeuvres – and free liquor. ■ But on election night, if the results show that you have lost your race – be gracious, tolerant and classy in your concession speech. Then, after you’ve left the stage, grab your grizzled campaign advisors and tear them apart with your bare hands. Good luck. Pat Cashman can be reached at pat@patcashman.com.

Luncheon to raise funds to help seniors Veteran KING 5 meteorologist Jeff Renner is scheduled to serve has master of ceremonies at the Gathering for Seniors luncheon next month to help fund the variety of free services provided by volunteers from Eastside Friends of Seniors. A limited number of seats are still available for the luncheon at noon on Friday, Nov. 9 at the Bellevue Hilton, 112th Ave. SE. Donations to Eastside Friends of Seniors will be accepted, but corporate sponsors and individual donors have contributed to cover the cost for the luncheon. Eastside Friends of Seniors provides free services to seniors in communities from Bellevue to the Snoqualmie Valley. Volunteers provide minor

household repairs, occasional rides to medical appointments, help with shopping and other services designed to allow seniors to retain the dignity of living independently. The organization was founded in 1997 as Faith in Action to enhance the lives of seniors in Issaquah and the Sammamish Plateau. The program expanded in 2008 as an independent non-profit agency to serve residents of the rural communities in East King County and officially changed its name to Eastside Friends of Seniors to more closely match the mission of the organization. The agency expanded into Bellevue earlier this year to meet the requests from an increasing population of seniors.

Puget Sound Energy to offer free LED bulbs Puget Sound Energy’s Rock the Bulb: The Re-Energize Tour 2012 is coming to Bellevue on Oct. 27-28, offering residential electric customers the chance to save energy and hundreds of dollars on their electric bill. The utility will give PSE residential customers free light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. Rock the Bulb will be held at the Bellevue Fred Meyer at 2041 148th Ave. NE, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 27 and 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

More than 75 percent of the clients served by Eastside Friends in 2010 identified themselves as low income. Almost half have mobility issues, while one-third of the clients have challenges with sight and/or hearing. The luncheon is a new effort to support the free services of Eastside Friends of Seniors. The organization had supplemented grants from corporations and congregations over the past several years with an annual auction. For more information on the luncheon, go to www.gatheringforseniors. org or call 425-369-9120. Call or or email info@eastsidefriendsofseniors.org to request services or become a volunteer.

New to Rock the Bulb, customers can receive LED bulbs in addition to compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Customers who attend Rock the Bulb can exchange up to 15 of their old inefficient incandescent bulbs for the same number of free Energy Star-qualified energy-saving bulbs, choosing from a variety of compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs and up to five LED bulbs. LED bulbs use up to 80 percent less energy while producing the same quality and brightness of light that customers are used to getting from incandescent bulbs. The qualified LED bulbs have a lifespan of up to 25 years and can last up to 10 years and use up to 78 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs. The average incandescent bulb can last up to 1,000 hours or one year.

Governor appoints student trustee to Bellevue College board With his appointment by Gov. Christine O. Gregoire, Bellevue College student Robert Rowe has become the first student in history to serve as a trustee at any of Washington state’s 34 community or technical colleges. His selection is the culmination of years of effort by Bellevue College students to gain representation. Rowe, who is 52 and a resident of Auburn, earned a science transfer degree and a certificate in accounting at Bellevue College and is a Phi Theta Kappa honor society member. He is taking additional prerequisite courses needed to enter a bachelor’s degree program in education, all while working full-time as an electrician, and eventually plans to become a high school math teacher. Rowe has two daughters who attend the college, and another daughter who is a former student.

LifeSpring program to offer hand up

“It’s really quite an honor for me to serve on the board. I think it’s important to have student representation, so I can give the trustees the student’s perspective regardRobert Rowe ing significant decisions,” Rowe said. Over the past five years, students at Bellevue College spearheaded the effort to allow those who attend the state’s community and technical colleges to serve on their boards of trustees, a right that students at the state’s public universities have had for years. Working under the guidance of Assistant Dean of Student Programs Faisal Jaswal, and with the support of BC’s administration and Board of Trustees, they created the outline of

potential legislation, and even designated a student to spend significant time in Olympia during four of the last five legislative sessions to communicate the merits of the bill to lawmakers. Those efforts resulted in the passage of SB 5217 in the Legislature and signed into law by Gregoire earlier this year. The law allows any college district’s board of trustees, which are comprised of five members, to establish a sixth trustee position to be filled by a student. The governor selects the student from a list of three to five candidates submitted by the student government of that college district. “Robert is going to pave a path for other students to follow not only at Bellevue College, but at all of the state’s community and technical colleges. This will benefit students in the long run by giving them a stronger

voice in the governance of their colleges,” Jaswal said. As a student trustee, Rowe will have all of the duties and powers of a regular trustee, but must excuse himself from participation or voting on matters related to hiring, discipline or tenure of faculty and personnel, or any matters pertaining to collective bargaining agreements. His term lasts until June 30, 2013. Current members of BC’s Board of Trustees are: Paul Chiles (chair), Marie Gunn (vice chair), Lisa Chin, Steve Miller and Vicki Orrico. “We’re delighted to welcome Robert to the board and look forward to the positive contributions he will make during his term,” Chiles said.

Assistance League of the Eastside’s signature program, Operation School Bell, helped more than 2,700 students in the Bellevue, Lake Washington and Northshore school districts this fall. The students in need, identified by their school counselors, had the opportunity to shop for school clothes in local Fred Meyer stores. In addition to school clothing, each student received a hand-knit hat or scarf and a dental kit, donated by Dr. Mark DiRe of Bellevue Dentistry. Additionally this year, DiRe is offering these students reduced rate dental care at this practice. At the Bellevue store, Bellevue Mayor Conrad Lee, Bellevue School District Superintendent Dr. Tim Mills and DiRe and his wife, had the opportunity to experience one of these shopping events first hand.

“We appreciate the opportunity to work with a wonderful organization like Assistance League of the Eastside to improve the health and well-being of these children,” DiRe said. Since 1989 Assistance League of the Eastside has clothed over 29,000 students in the three school districts. In addition, the organization has contributed over $3.3 million back into the community through their four programs – Operation School Bell, Starting Over Support, Assault Survivor Kits and Assistance League Outreach.

More than $1 million raised for Hopelink

Luncheon breaks record for funds for Kindering BY KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

BY KAITLIN GROVES Bellevue Reporter

Approximately 1,700 local philanthropists raised $1.1 million for Redmondbased HopeLink, during a fundraiser lunch at the Meydenbauer Convention Center in downtown Bellevue on Monday, Oct. 15. Jeannette Walls, who grew up in poverty, but later found wealth and a successful career as a New York writer, told many of the same stories in her book, “The Glass Castle,” during the lunch. As a 3-year-old, she caught her dress on fire while cooking hot dogs in the trailer her family was living in. She spent the next six weeks in the hospital, until her father “rescued” her by scooping her up in his arms and running away without paying the bill. He called that move, “the skedaddle,” Walls said, and the whole family did it often. “We were always running away,” she said, “sleeping in cars, sleeping in cardboard boxes.” Her parents had trouble accepting charity, she said, because it hurt their self-esteem so much, but she has come to believe that giving and accepting charity can be healthy for both the giver and receiver. “The truly lucky among us are in a position to give someone a hand up,” she said. “It’s not just about giving people food. It’s

Several of the speakers mentioned the “changing face” of their clients, because of the changing economy.

Four generations of the philanthropic Alhadeff family were celebrated Friday, Oct. 5, as part of the 50th Anniversary Salute to Courage Luncheon, benefitting Kindering. The luncheon, which was sponsored by Kindering and Pediatrics Associates Inc., took place at the Bellevue Westin Hotel. Representing the Alhadeff family as 2012 Salute to Courage event chairs were Krista & Charles Grinstein and Dina Alhadeff & Jason Long. “We’re big supporters and huge fans of what Kindering does,” said Krista Grinstein. Her husband, Charles is the grandson of late Kindering benefactor Charlie Alhadeff.

Leatrice (Lee) Hanan Kraft

...obituaries

Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, friend and new great grandmother passed away peacefully Wednesday, October 3 surrounded by loving family after valiantly battling cancer, heart and lung problems for the past 32 years. She was born May 4, 1929 to Morris and Matilda Hanan, and attended Horace Mann Elementary, Garfield High School and the University of Washington. In 1948 she married Dr. Harry J. Kraft who she said “kept me laughing” for the 64 years of their marriage. They moved to Mercer Island where they raised their family and lived until 2011 when they moved to Bellevue’s Belletini. She was active in raising money to build the current Stroum Jewish Community Center on Mercer Island, and was involved in the National Council of Jewish Women, Temple de Hirsch Sinai and conducted oral interviews for the Washington State Jewish Historical Society. She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Harry Kraft; daughter Elaine (Jeff Bean) of Seattle; sons Robert (Lori) of Bellevue and Richard (Debra Corner) of Lynnwood; grandchildren Paul Somerstein (Karly) Seattle; Leslie Somerstein, Seattle; Rachel Kraft, Tucson, AZ., Aaron Kraft, Bellevue and Brionna Kraft, Los Angeles, CA; great grandson Adam Somerstein; beloved nieces Joanne Sandler (Michael) Mercer Island; Marcia Friedman (Ed Weinstein) Seattle and Margaret Pearl (Tad) Seattle; nephews Morris Hanan (Patti) Sammamish and Tom Hanan (Marci) Mercer Island. She also had two “bonus” grandchildren, Ahmad Corner, Seattle, and Shoshana Bean, Valley Village, CA. She is preceded in death by her parents, Morris and Matilda Hanan and her sister Julia Friedman (Edwin) and brother Albert Hanan (Maryl.) At the family request, there will be a private burial followed by a celebration of her life for friends and family. Remembrances may be made in her name to the Kline Galland Home, 7500 Seward Park Ave. South, Seattle WA 98118.

Linda Marie Lavold Hyatt

Linda Marie Lavold Hyatt, 73, of Bellevue, WA, died October 1, 2012. She was born to Einar and Ingeborg Lavold on March 6, 1939 in Juneau, Alaska. Linda graduated from Juneau Douglas High School. Her greatest joy was spending time with the grand-kids. She was always volunteering to help others in need. Linda was an active member at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church for many years. She loved to travel and learn about her Norwegian heritage. Linda is survived by her children: David Hyatt, Donna (Tom) Walin, Rob (Janice) Hyatt and her seven grandchildren: Jacob, Kesleigh, Caleb, Jenni, Bailey, Noah and Brooklyn. A memorial will be held at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church, Bellevue, October 19th at 3:00 pm.

somal abnormalities, vision impairment, extraordinary complications of prematurity, or abuse and neglect. “Decades of research have proven that ages birth to three are the most critical phase of brain development for any child – a one-time opportunity to make a powerful difference,” said Mimi Siegel, Executive Director of Kindering. In 2011, Kindering helped more than 3,300 children and their families. Services include developmental assessments; physical; speech, and mental health therapies; special education; childcare consultation; nutrition/feeding therapy; outreach to homeless shelters, foster and kinship care interventions; family counseling; and parent education. This year’s luncheon - which served as an opportunity for the community, families, and providers to come together to meet the children and families whose lives have been changed by Kindering’s special education programs - was attended by more than 400 people and raised more than $500,000. Their previous record was $324,000, with last year’s total being $225,000.
