Many liquor store owners feel burned by state, terms of privatization Houghton neighborhood liquor store closes, suffers big losses BY RAECHEL DAWSON


on Sidhu has held various jobs at gas stations, he’s driven ice cream trucks and taxi cabs and worked in a small business since he came to the United States from India in 1992. Sidhu put a lot of money into his new business when the Liquor Control Board auctioned off the 167 state-run liquor stores to private retailers in April. He says

he and his brother have put in $1.5 to $2 million from the four stores they bid on, including one in Kirkland’s Houghton neighborhood. But Sidhu – like several other liquor store owners in the state – has felt the impact since liquor privatization took effect last June. He was forced to close Liquor Store No. 57 in Houghton two weeks ago because he said the store lost 85 percent of business since privatization.

“We’re broke. The landlord (at one location outside of Kirkland) is coming after us because the personal guarantee is signed,” said Sidhu. “I’m looking for everything, there’s nothing I can do.” Bankruptcy may be inevitable, he says. Sidhu, who bought two stores in Vancouver and one in Kennewick, which is now closed, purchased the right to the Houghton location at 10609 N.E. 68th St. for $344,712. The right to operate the others

were purchased at state auction for $264,125, $263,152 and $212,106 respectively. Many retailers would say the state packaged the liquor stores as a great business opportunity. The highest bidders were promised “special rights,” such as the exclusive right to apply for a liquor license at the current state-run locations. And under Initiative-1183, the stores couldn’t sell liquor if their retail space was under 10,000 square feet, but these stores could. Additional cost control by [ more LIQUOR page 9 ]

City officials hope for Potala resolution, extend moratorium BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ

The Kirkland Council delayed the development of the proposed Potala Village project for the fourth time during its Oct. 16 meeting, however city officials are hoping for good news soon with the controversial project. The council voted unanimously on Oct. 16 to extend the moratorium on development in the Business Neighborhood (BN) zone through Dec. 31. The moratorium, which was initially imposed last November, was set to expire Nov. 15. But the Potala Village, which is proposed to be built in the Moss Bay neighborhood’s BN zone, may finally be moving in a positive direction for city officials, developer Lobsang Dargey of Dargey Enterprises and the surrounding community. “The positive news is that we are still in very productive discussions. We are all still at the table,” said City Manager Kurt Triplett, noting that the

city has been in mediation for the past couple of weeks with Dargey and several residents concerned about the project’s scale and neighborhood impact. “Hopefully we can reach some sort of agreement.” Triplett could not comment further on the details of the mediation. But he did say the developer “has stayed his litigation, which we appreciate while mediations are going on.” If the group does reach a mediated agreement, the council would take action to implement that agreement some time in November and the lawsuit would be dropped, said Triplett. Dargey could not be reached for comment. When Dargey proposed a 144 apartment unit on a 1.2 acre lot with a view of Lake Washington in the BN zone last year, the surrounding community protested. Project opponents said the BN zoning code’s unlimited-density issue conflicts with the city’s Comprehensive Plan. The BN zone permits such uses as retail, office [ more POTALA page 4 ]

Kirkland man sentenced for leading international drug ring BY RAECHEL DAWSON

A Kirkland man was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison for leading an international marijuana and cocaine drug ring. Jacob Saul Stuart, 39, who was detained at the Seatac Federal Detention Center after his arrest in April 2011, was sentenced in U.S. District Court. Two dozen other people from U.S. and Canada were also charged in the case and five have been sentenced. Drug dealers brought marijuana in from Canada via a private airplane and distributed it across the U.S., reaching California, Illinois, Missouri, Georgia and New Jersey, according to charging documents. Money from marijuana sales was used to purchase cocaine in Southern California, which was transported to British Columbia for distribution. “This is one of the largest drug cases we have had in [ more DRUG page 8 ]

Kirkland gets clean marks from state auditor The Washington State Auditor’s Office recently completed its annual audit of the City of Kirkland in the areas of accountability, financial statement, and federal grant compliance. The accountability audit includes legal compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act and the safeguarding of public resources with proper internal controls. The office had no audit recommendations or findings in any of the three audit areas. The Auditor’s Office indicated that Kirkland’s results are noteworthy as there are very few entities in Washington state that achieved “clean” audits for 2011 and that the Auditor’s Office has been issuing more findings. In addition to the clean audits, the city received the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for the city’s comprehensive annual financial report. On Oct. 16, the council received a summary of the audit and presented the GFOA award to Finance and Administration Department staff. “These are amazing accomplishments for the city, the Finance Department, and our citizens,” noted Councilwoman Amy Walen, chair of the council’s Finance Committee. “These show our continued commitment to fiscal responsibility.” The city has received the GFOA award since 2004. To view the audit report, go to the Washington State Auditor’s Office website at, select “Audits,” then “Local Governments” and then select “City of Kirkland.”

Residents can recycle used cooking oil and grease Cooking oil can wreak havoc on drains and pipes and is a valuable resource. Thanks to a new partnership between the City of Kirkland and General Biodiesel of Seattle, Kirkland residents can recycle their used cooking oil and grease, to be converted into biodiesel fuel. A collection tank is now located at the North Kirkland Community Center, 12421 103rd Ave. N.E., at the north end of the parking lot. General Biodiesel collects the cooking oil, converts it to biodiesel fuel, then distributes it to local fleets. The partnership allows for an environmentally-friendly way to dispose of used cooking oil and grease to be recycled instead of ending up in the landfill or the pipe system. Tips for transporting used cooking oil: • Store cool, used cooking oil in a clear, plastic jug with a secure lid • Pour the cooking oil into a large container. Be sure the container allows for easy pouring • Only used cooking oil will be accepted in the collection containers (motor oil is prohibited) For more information on how to recycle other liquids, like paint

and motor oil, please visit: www. Contact Kelly Ferron, Kirkland’s Recycling Programs coordinator, with any questions at 425-587-3812 or

Kirkland goldendoodle, Dulcie, needs your vote by Oct. 30 Kirkland resident Nicole Liljegren’s 7-month-old puppy, Dulcie, is a finalist in CityDog Magazine’s Cover Model Search. Dulcie is now competing with five other finalists to determine who will grace the cover of CityDog Magazine. The 7-month-old goldendoodle (golden retriever/poodle mix) became a finalist by winning the Cover Model Contest at the Kirkland Uncorked Festival in July. The contest benefited Homeward Pet Adoption Center. Liljegren says it’s a tight race and Dulcie is seeking votes from Kirkland residents who would like to support their local pup. “Dulcie is the sweetest dog who just absolutely loves everyone she comes in contact with,” said Liljegren. “I’m a middle school teacher and she is so gentle with my students. She has even helped me build relationships with kids who would not otherwise open up.” Liljegren says when Dulcie comes to visit, her classroom is full of kids after school who want to play and cuddle with her. Dulcie is “addicted to swimming” and will fetch her water toy for hours. “She doesn’t even know she’s tired until she jumps in the car and crashes out before I even start driving away,” said Liljegren. “She rings a bell to go potty and runs straight out to her designated spot like clockwork. She will do anything for a carrot, peanut butter or a good roughed up Nyla bone.” Dulcie’s favorite place to meet up with friends is Jasper’s Dog Park in Totem Lake and she loves going to downtown Kirkland too because she gets so much attention there. She loves “eating” at The Slip because she gets her own pail of water. “We have heard people describe her as a stuffed animal that doesn’t look real and even a Muppet,” said

Dulcie is a 7-month-old goldendoodle who currently seeks the community’s vote for a chance to win the CityDog Magazine’s Cover Model Search.

and residential. As a result, the city issued several moratoria on new building permits for the area. The freezes led Dargey to file a lawsuit in May arguing that the city did not have the jurisdiction to react that way based on one project. Triplett said the brief extension on prohibiting development will allow the council to adopt any BN zoning changes at the same time the city adopts its annual Comprehensive Plan amendments. Plan amend-

ments can only be adopted once a year. “The changes need to be adopted together to have them synced up,” said Triplett, noting the council will likely take final action on amendments to the BN zoning regulations at its last meeting of the year on Dec. 11, along with related amendments to the Comprehensive Plan. The public will have an opportunity to speak on the draft amendments to the BN zoning at the beginning of the meeting, which starts at 7:30 p.m.

Vote for Joel Hussey Please vote for Joel Hussey for state legislature in the 45th District. Unlike his opponent, Joel is not a professional politician. He has spent years serving the community; he has been a school board president, is active in the boy scouts and as president of Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association, he spearheaded a reorganization of the association and its finances. His leadership ultimately led to development of new soccer fields on 60 Acres South and return of the Mueller Farm to organic farming. With his background in education and work with youth groups, Joel is uniquely equipped to join the effort to improve our education system to meet court ordered standards. Hussey will make funding and improving education a top priority. As a successful businessman, Hussey will help in the effort to forge a sustainable budget and end the costly over-runs and special sessions. Over regulation, cumbersome taxation and out-of-control spending are destroying businesses in our state. Hussey’s business skills will be useful when he works with both parties to pass sustainable budgets, reduce regulation and create an environment that spurs business growth. If you’re tired of budget over-runs, special sessions and gimmicks, out-of-control spending, over-regulation and endless partisan bickering, shouldn’t you vote to field a new team in Olympia? Joel Hussey has exactly the skills, training and experience we need now.

Propositions 1 and 2 will hurt fixed income people If Propositions 1 and 2 pass, property taxes will cost an average home owner another $150 per year, after year, after year. So the question is for those on fixed income, would you rather use the $150 to cover the increase cost of Social Security, and Medicare Part B, and Medicare Part D whose increase is forecasted to be as much as 23 percent. For those who have not retired, it’s money you can use to pay for the quality of life you choose. Fixed income people will hurt the most. I’m one of them. We will only receive a 1 to 2 percent increase in our monthly checks while Kirkland’s budget grows at a rate 4 times faster than our cost of living (COLA) allowance. It’s money we need to balance our budgets. If Prop 1 and 2 pass, it frees up more than $5.35 million, money that is already in their $449 million dollar budget and could have been used to negate the need for Prop 1 and 2. There’s no need for additional taxes. But Council wants more to spend on other things. Because the park levy can be used as collateral, it reduces our capability for additional funding. The council would like to see the levy amounts to be larger. But there’s only so much we can stand. Of this you can be sure. The council will continue to rob Peter to pay Paul.

Robert L. Style, Kirkland

Reject Propositions 1 and 2 Propositions 1 and 2 are not really park and street maintenance levies. They are actually multimillion dollar capital project

levies. The ballot titles and descriptions use maintenance language but the preponderance of funds raised are not for maintenance. They are to pay for major capital expenditures including the controversial Cross Kirkland Trail and citywide curbs, gutters and sidewalks. Ordinarily, major capital projects are funded by long-term bonds. A big benefit of this method is that the annual costs to the taxpayer are much lower than with levies. But bond issues require over 60 percent voter approval. Getting 60 percent backing for the controversial trail and sidewalks would be a tough sale. Park upkeep and fixing potholes are easy sales. And levies only require 50 percent approval. By bundling everything together in levies, voters favoring the park and street upkeep will have to accept the trail and sidewalks, or reject the park and street work. By using levies instead of bonds, the city only needs to coax 50 percent of the voters to go along with the controversial projects instead of 60 percent. Is this cunning salesmanship or coercion? Bond issues also go away after a fixed time. These levies run forever. They also give the city a generous and virtually open-ended permanent parks and public works slush fund. Read the full text carefully. The timing and completion of the projects named in the levies is at the council’s discretion. There is no time limit. The city is not restricted to the work named in the levies. These funds can be used at any time for any work the city wants within the broadly worded scope of these levies. Park and street maintenance are important needs. And so are capital improvements. But Kirkland citizens deserve a better way to fund both needs than is offered in these levies. If we accept permanent levies to fund major capital projects, questionable tactics to get money for maintenance, and an offbudget slush fund for wish lists, we forever lose our opportunity to demand a better way. Both of these crafty propositions should be rejected and sent back to our resourceful council to “recalculate.”

Hit reset button, vote for McCravey Our children deserve the very best we can give them and instead Olympia is failing them. The Legislature has failed to fund education, failed to grow businesses and create jobs, failed to balance a budget, and failed to attend to the governance of the state while running after special interest dollars. In our district, Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, chair of the Education Committee, has been singled out because she stymied key education reforms. Unfortunately, she has been part of Olympia for 20 years and an elected official for 35 years. She has lost touch with the people she was elected to serve. Instead, I believe she is allowing special interests to dictate education policy in Washington. Her state senate race opponent, Dawn McCravey, has worked hard to improve curriculum, tie board and district goals to student achievement and to protect student programs. McCravey was also committed to protecting our valuable employees from devastating unconstitutional budget slashing in Olympia during her time on the Northshore School Board. The only way to change directions in Olympia is to change the people we send there. This election cycle let’s vote for a new direction and elect Dawn McCravey for state Senate. Together, we can hit the reset button on Olympia and career politicians!

Council approves zoning to allow for residential suites ments will likely take effect within the next couple of weeks. The council discussed the issue of parking, traffic and green building during the Oct. 16 meeting. The Planning Commission recommended to the council that green building not be a requirement due to its high cost, which would take away from its main perk of affordability, but many members were in favor of the green incentive. Others had issue with parking for the location in the Central Business District. Councilman Dave Asher said he would like to have a pilot in the downtown location that looked at one development over the years and its impact on parking and traffic. But the council did



he Kirkland City Council voted 6-1 on Oct. 16 to go forth with zoning amendments to the Central Business District and the Totem Lake Business District, which have unlimited density, to allow for the development of residential suites. Single residential housing or residential suites are described as affordable 150-to 350-squarefoot units that will have a small bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink, a mini bar with a microwave, a small refrigerator and a bed, but share a common area with a kitchen and dining table. Prices are expected to be as low as $600 a month. The zoning amend-

not act on his suggestion. “Parking is an issue all over this area,” Councilman Bob Sternoff agreed.

The zoning code amendment specified that parking would either be one spot for each housing unit or one for every two units with a management plan. The plan would record, track and document all parking spill over as well as penalize for failure to comply. “It’s possible that over time the parking requirements may be reduced as we get more information on how these are rented out, but for now we’re comfortable,” said Planning Commission chair Mike Miller. But Sternoff said that he didn’t know how enforcement would work out since they “have a hard enough time trying to track (their) own employees’ (parking).” Planning Director Eric Shields said the develop-

ers would choose whether to incorporate either type of parking or a mixture of both. Nonetheless, the council is optimistic about residential housing. “You get something creative that fills the need and helps the community. It was never our intention to create homogeneous neighborhoods,” said Councilwoman Amy Walen, despite being worried about parking. “I love these. I think they’re wonderful and I love having them in downtown and Totem Lake.” Shields said developer Robert Pantely has one parking spot for every two housing units at his Redmond location and has expressed that he is comfortable with having a transportation management plan.

Kirkland Council removes Houghton/Everest Neighborhood Center from 2012 work program, more information in 2013 BY RAECHEL DAWSON

The Kirkland City Council unanimously approved the Houghton/Everest Neighborhood Center be removed from the 20122014 Planning Work Program on Oct. 16. The council “felt it best” to complete the required 10-year update to the city’s Comprehensive Plan before conducting planning on the Houghton/Everest Neighborhood Center Plan. Several Everest and

Central Houghton neighborhood residents expressed the need for more time for the process. Plenty of community engagement and neighborhood planning will be available during the Comprehensive Plan update and it is scheduled to begin the first quarter of 2013. “It is worth noting that the council’s action did not enact a moratorium on development in the Houghton/Everest Neighborhood Center,” an update on the issue stated. “Also,

there has been no development proposal within this Neighborhood Center submitted to the city as of this update.” The Planning Work Program was developed by the Planning and Community Development Department with the Planning Commission. The 2012-14 Work Program was approved by the council in May and called for completion of an update to the Houghton/Everest Neighborhood Center Plan by the end of 2012,

followed by the adoption of the zoning regulations and design guidelines by the end of March 2013. Residents in the community had a strong concern about current traffic conditions and the impact future development may have on traffic. As a result, staff from the Public Works Department will be conducting field inspections and speaking with the leadership from the Houghton and Everest neighborhood associations. The city will be develop-

ing educational materials and activities that will help residents understand the state’s Growth Management Act that was enacted by the Legislature in response to rapid population growth and concerns with suburban sprawl, environmental protection, quality of life and related issues.

BRIEF Assisted living center burglar arrested Thanks to a recent broadcast by local television station KCPQ (Q-13 Fox) of the “Washington’s Most Wanted” series, a burglary suspect is behind bars. A male suspect entered the Madison House Retirement and Assisted Living Center in Kirkland on Sept. 9 and gained entry into a number of occupied residents’ rooms and stole property. Surveillance footage obtained by the Kirkland Police Department depicted an unidentified white male entering and exiting the premises that was believed to be the burglary suspect. During the investigation, Kirkland detectives learned that a credit card stolen from one of the tenants was fraudulently used at several locations in the South Hill area of Puyallup. Detectives obtained video surveillance images from one or more of these transactions showing what was believed to be the same male suspect captured on video entering/

exiting Madison House at the time of the burglary. Detectives contacted Q13’s “Washington’s Most Wanted” TV program, who assisted by airing the information in this case on two subsequent broadcasts, including posting the case to their website. As a result of the broadcast and posting of the case information and suspect photos, numerous tips were received from the public via Crime Stoppers, each tip suggesting the same male suspect. Kirkland detectives arrested a 31-year-old male on Oct. 17 suggested by the anonymous tipsters via Crime Stoppers. He was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of residential burglary, second-degree theft, four counts of attempted residential burglary and malicious mischief in the second degree. “Kirkland Police detectives would like to thank Q13’s Washington’s Most Wanted, Crime Stoppers and most importantly the citizens that called in the anonymous tips that led to the arrest of the suspect in this case,” said Lt. John Haslip, Kirkland Police Department. “This is a great example of law enforcement, media and the public coming together to solve a crime.”

our Seattle men were charged Oct. 12 for residential burglary and firearm theft in the Kirkland/Juanita and Kenmore area. Michael Wade, 26, Filmon Berhe, 28, Christopher Patterson, 19, and Cody Wade, 18 from Seattle were charged for three home burglaries - two in Juanita, one in Kenmore - as well as six counts of firearm theft from one Juanita home.

this district. This is a dangerous business with dangerous people who don’t hesitate to use violence,” said U.S. District Judge John C. Coughenour of all his 31 years on the bench. Bothell investment mortgage broker Robert Wolverton was also charged by federal prosecutors but is still waiting sentencing. Wolverton was charged with conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and marijuana with the intent to distribute. DEA and Homeland Security Investigations officials discovered the drug ring by using court authorized wiretaps. About 1,000 to 2,000 pounds of marijuana and 100 to 200 kilograms of cocaine were transported every month, court documents continue. One of the wiretapped phone calls caught Stuart speaking about the purchase of guns, bats and chemical sprays for members of the criminal ring in Canada who were traveling to Washington to investigate 100 kilograms of police-seized cocaine. U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan said Stuart hid his deals while posing as a “stay-at-home soccer dad.” But the smuggling orga-

nization allegedly had ties to the Hells Angels outlaw motorcycle gang in British Columbia, Canada. Michael Murphy, a pilot who transported drugs, was sentenced to 12 years in prison; Jacob Burdick, who stored and organized transportation of the drugs, was sentenced to 12 years in prison; John Washington, a drug distributor for the group, was given 11 years in prison; Mario Joseph Fenianos, a Canadian who obtained and smuggled cocaine for the ring, received 13 years in prison; and Michael William Dubois, another Canadian working on the cocaine side of the smuggling, was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Investigators seized $2 million, 136 kilograms of cocaine and more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana from the drug ring’s operation. The case was investigated by DEA Offices across the U.S., Homeland Security Investigations in Seattle and Sacramento, Customs and Border Protection, the King County Sheriff ’s Department, Seattle Police Department, Washington State Patrol, Snohomish Regional Drug Task Force and the Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement in California.

Houghton Community Council appoints new member to fill vacancy At a special meeting on Oct. 15, the Houghton Community Council (HCC) appointed Brian Gawthrop to a vacant seat (Position 7) on the HCC. The appointment is for an unexpired four-year term, which will end upon certification of the 2013 general election. The position became vacant upon the resignation of former Councilwoman Georgine Foster. The Houghton Community Council is the elected council for the Houghton Community Municipal Corporation. The Community Municipal Corporation was

created pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 35.14 RCW. Information about the council’s jurisdiction, powers and authority can be found in Kirkland Municipal Code (KMC) Chapter 2.12. The KMC can be viewed online at www. (Search: Municipal Code). Houghton Community Council meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month at 7 p.m., unless otherwise scheduled.

Kirkland are also closed, “They (the bidders) don’t but the Reporter could not have the buying power,” confirm what led to those

circumstances. Other liquor stores who are still open report business is slow or just surviving. Josh Boggs, assistant manager of Redmond Ridge Liquor and Wine, said that business has been fairly slow since the state was in the liquor business. “We do have a lot of items that you can’t get at a Costco or other grocery stores,” said Boggs, adding that they carry specialty items like high-end tequila, bourbon, scotch and gin. However, those other stores are grabbing a large amount of the liquor business, Boggs added. “To be able to see liquor right in front of you while you’re shopping, it grabs your attention. It’s a convenience factor,” he said. Redmond Ridge Liquor and Wine, owned by Chuck Ferrel, has been open about four years and previously contracted with the state to sell liquor. Abi Eshagi of Woodinville purchased the store at Bothell-Everett Highway 20617 for $110,000. “We never opened (the Bothell store) because we couldn’t get the lease,” said Eshagi. “What wasn’t disclosed was that someone already leased the location.” Pete’s Wine had already

applied for a liquor license in that spot. Eshagi said that he has filed a petition with the State Liquor Control Board and that his lawyers are looking into the matter. He refused further comment on the legal procedures available to him. He owns two other stores in the state that have survived. “Sales have been okay,” Eshagi said. “But they have not been nearly what they were (prior to privatization).” And yet, there are still liquor store owners who are optimistic. Over at Premium Wine & Spirits on Redmond Way, manager Peggy Binckley said they’ve been busy since co-owners Jeff and Michael Roh took over in June. Jeff bid $281,660 in a state auction in April to win the rights to the store. Location may be key. The state turned the building at 16389 Redmond Way into a liquor store in April 2010. And the brick building has some history behind it, according to Binckley, who said it was Redmond Mayor Bill Brown’s car-repair shop in the 1920s. “People love this building — it’s dear to their heart,” she said. “The owners have gone to great lengths to restore it.”

Korbett Miller of Kirkland just won the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Championship in Long Beach California. What’s special about this is Miller is 43 years old and traces his martial arts lineage to the famous Seattle resident Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee, whom many credit as being the father of mixed martial arts, resided in Seattle in the 1960’s. Before Bruce Lee was a famous movie star he was a martial artist who was obsessed with becoming the best he could be. He surrounded himself with people who pushed him and made him better.

Vote no on Prop 2 After some digging, I have learned that the 2011-2012 Kirkland Parks Department fund is about $14 million. That base amount should increase considerably when the annexation area contribution is fully included in future assessments. But the developers of the cross city railroad corridor want to increase the park fund now by 17 percent with a large, and unnecessary $2.4 million annual levy to build something on the rail bed. The new levy amount will increase because it is based on property values that will obviously rise. The Parks Department is currently well financed and can continue so with normal increases. I again urge residents to vote NO on Prop. 2, and require the developers to request funding for specific projects.

adding 2 million barrels per day would do to pricing. This state needs a senator with practical, common sense values. She is smart and well educated but has no common sense. Even her own party recognizes this. The business of the Senate all begins in a committeed. There are twenty committees and sixty eight subcommittees. They are classified as A, B and C committees depending upon the importance of their work. The leaders of the party that has the most members in the Senate gets to assign the committee chairman. The power in the Senate lies in the hands of those chairmen. They decide what their committee will discuss and if it will even be brought to a vote, which would then refer the matter on to the full Senate. Maria’s Democrat party has control of the Senate. After twelve years have

they assigned her a committee chairmanship? No. Years ago this state had two powerful Senators: Henry Jackson and Warren Magnuson. They were chairmen of A committees and they got things done for America as well as Washington State. Furthermore, Patty Murray after twenty years has had her party assign her to be the Chairman of the Veteran Affairs Committee. This is a C assignment after twenty years. What does that say? Democrat members with far less time have been given significant assignments. Why? We can only speculate in the negative. We need change. We need either a new Democrat or a Republican who can get something done. To vote for Maria is to vote against jobs, for higher gas and food prices and more energy dependence.

buying some five-plus miles of a moribund rail line from a partially publicly-funded entity (the Port of Seattle) for $5 million was certainly not the most urgent need this community has. But now that King County has announced plans to purchase the rest of this line to create a trail, we need to stand down. King County won’t be rebating a part of our taxes to compensate Kirklanders for creating our own section of a regional trail. We’ll get to pay for “our” trail … and then we’ll get to subsidize Newcastle, and Bellevue, and Woodinville for their portions of any future trail. If that isn’t enough reason to vote “No” on Proposition 2, please do two things before you vote. First, read the excellent article by Keith Ervin, which ran in the March 18 edition of The Seattle Times. That story, “Kirkland city manager stumps for trail project along old rail line,” makes clear the grandiose and expensive ideas Kurt Triplett has for this long, skinny piece of real estate. A pathway akin to a Burke-Gilman Trail isn’t fancy enough for him; he wants something “truly world class,” even comparing buying the rail line to the Louisiana Purchase and, in the accompanying photo, adopting a pose worthy of Columbus discovering the New World. If you are thinking that Triplett’s vision will be ultra-expensive, you’re right. The other factor to consider is just how much money King County spent to merely upgrade and repair a two-mile section of that same Burke-Gilman Trail in the Kenmore-Lake Forest Park-Sheridan Beach area.

More than $5 million went into repair and upgrade of just two miles of trail. It’s anyone’s guess as to what it will cost to fully develop the almost six miles of railway we bought a few months ago, and that’s the problem. We need to see the plan and the price tag so citizens can vote up or down on Triplett’s scheme, not create an albatross that will siphon funds from all of our parks for decades.

YES on 1240 Will Give More Washington Students A Chance To Succeed Initiative 1240 will allow up to 40 public charter schools in Washington state over the next five years. Charter schools are public schools that are free and open to all students, with the same teacher certification requirements and academic standards as traditional public schools, and funded based on

student enrollment just like other public schools. However, charter schools allow teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of students, which is especially important for students who are not succeeding in traditional schools. Please join us in voting YES on 1240.

Parents, Teachers, Civic & Education Leaders Urge YES on 1240

“Public charter schools across the country have a proven track record of helping students succeed, especially those at risk of falling through the cracks. Initiative 1240 brings the best of what works in other states to Washington.“ Dr. Sam Smith Former President Washington State University

“Public charter schools allow teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of students, especially students who aren’t succeeding in traditional public school settings. That’s why I support a YES vote on 1240.” Joan Ferrigno Public High School Principal Seattle

“As a parent of two young children, I understand that every child learns differently. I-1240 provides Washington parents more options to find the best learning environment for our children.” Tania de Sá Campos Public School Parent and Elementary School Parent Volunteer Seattle

“I’ve studied public charter schools across the country, and I support a YES vote on 1240. Initiative 1240 is a well-written law that requires strict accountability and annual performance reviews. And 1240 ensures that public funding stays with public schools– following students just as it does now.” Professor Paul T. Hill, Ph.D. University of Washington Founder, Center on Reinventing Public Education

“As a public school teacher, I’m a strong believer in public education. That’s why I support a YES vote on 1240, to allow public charter schools in Washington. Charter schools give teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of our students… and more options to help them succeed.” Chris Eide Public School Teacher and Co-Founder, Teachers United

“As a proud graduate of Tacoma Public Schools, an advocate for public education and an elected official who cares deeply about our city and state’s future, I urge you to join me and cast your vote for Initiative 1240.” Marilyn Strickland Mayor, City of Tacoma Member, Public Education Task Force U.S. Conference of Mayors

Larey McDaniel has been a member of Parklane Gallery since 2002, and for many years, as a Board member has served as either treasurer or president of the gallery. He is currently Parklane Gallery’s spotlight artist for October. McDaniel received his first clarinet and his first camera at about the same time. He’s been enthralled with both art forms ever since and has created a professional life that neatly intertwines the two. His fifth grade year, he inaugurated his new Kodak Brownie camera on a family trip to Glacier National Park. His music studies began in the fourth grade at his Bremerton elementary school and continued through his college years as a student at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. He became a clarinetist with the Seattle Symphony in 1960. “McD” has been taking photos professionally since his college years when he served as a photographer for touring music groups at Oberlin. He now presents his fine art photography in

juried art shows and galleries (he has even “soloed” with shows of his photography on the walls of Seattle Opera’s McCaw Hall), and takes photographs of paintings and 3-D art in his studio at Parklane Gallery. McDaniel cites the rapid evolution of digital cameras and image-editing software as the factor that has most fueled his passion for photography. As an artist, he seeks “interesting” effects via careful manipulation of images. One of his goals as a photographer is to create highly defined realism with visible detail from the lightest to the darkest areas of a scene.


During the past five years the cross-town rivalry game between Juanita and Lake Washington has been one sided. This year was supposed to be different. The Kangs came into the game with a record over .500, looking like a formidable opponent. But the Rebels were not intimidated, as they thumped Lake Washington 40-0 Friday in a 4A KingCo match up.

Rebel Oscar Fuentes got into the scoring action with a 23-yard touchdown run during the third quarter. But the longest score of the night for the Rebels came during the fourth quarter with the game all but over. An 80-yard pass from Nick Peterson to Cody Otterholt completed the scoring during the game. With the win, Juanita improves to 4-2 in league play and 5-3 overall. The Kangs fell to 2-4 in league play and 4-4 overall.

Nick Horne’s 30-yard field goal, to start the second quarter, gave the Rebels a 17-0 lead. Juanita continued with the gas pedal to the floor, as Montgomery found Kendrick Murphy for a 10-yard touchdown pass, giving the Rebels a 24-0 halftime lead.

he changing of district lines adds confusion for voters and gives an element of the unknown to the first election for candidates. Both issues play a big part in the race for Position No. 2 in the First Legislative District. Incumbent Luis Moscoso, D-Mountlake Terrace, has the challenge of identifying the new voting bloc and persuading voters to give him another term. “I think the district is a little more balanced now,” said Moscoso, whose district has not been represented by a Republican since the mid-1990s. “I kind of like that myself. Regardless of party affiliation I am elected to serve all the residents.” For challenger Mark Davies, the change made the road to just getting on the ballot difficult. The new boundaries include the Finn Hill neighborhood of Kirkland, none of Kenmore and all of Bothell.

Freiheit & Ho Architects in Kirkland recently announced that its board of directors has elected David Hills, AIA, LEED AP BD+C to the position of executive vice president as the next step in an overall David Hills leadership transition plan. Founder Dick Freiheit remains president and will continue to guide the firm’s day-to-day business activities. “David represents the upcoming generation of leadership and will help provide the strategic direction necessary to continue our vision of forging creative solutions every day,” said Dick Freiheit, president and founder of Freiheit & Ho Architects. “We’ve seen steady growth of 75 percent over the past three years, and David’s leadership will be key to ensuring continued growth and exceeding client expectations.” “It’s with great pleasure that I pass the baton to David,” said Larry Ho, founder and outgoing vice president. “During his tenure, he has proven to be pivotal in the success of the firm and I am confident David will be an even greater asset in our future.” Ho will remain active as a design principal. Hills’ new leadership role recognizes his dedication to the field of architecture and contributions to the firm over the past 26 years. Since joining Freiheit & Ho Architects, Hills quickly rose to positions of greater responsibility, led design and management of increasingly complex and technical projects and has been instrumental in the expansion of practice markets, all with a demonstrated reputation for strong leadership and superior client service. In his new role, Hills will continue to lead projects and support client relationships while assuming greater leadership of the firm’s focus and strategy for the future. “With a business structure and systems based in teaming and collaboration, Freiheit & Ho identified early on the benefits of an

SummerFest Event generates $4,250 for Lake Washington students While families and music and art lovers were having a great time at the Aug. 10-11 Kirkland SummerFest, held in and around Marina Park, they were also helping out Lake Washington public school students. As the event beneficiary, the Lake Washington Schools Foundation received $4,250 that will help it support academic excellence and success for all Lake Washington students. Donations to the foundation go towards innovative classroom programs, the school district’s LINKS mentoring program and helping low-income students purchase school necessities. The Schools Foundation was chosen as the event beneficiary to tie in with the festival’s theme of family. According to Rob Butcher, choosing to partner with the foundation was an easy decision for the SummerFest organizers. It seemed a natural fit for Kirkland’s only free, family-centered summer festival, and Butcher and Michelle Sailor are planning to work closer with the Lake Washington School District to include more students in its 2013 SummerFest lineup. Proceeds from next summer’s festival will again benefit Lake Washington students through the foundation. At the Oct. 2 Kirkland City Council meeting, SummerFest co-chairs Butcher and Sailor presented the Lake Washington Schools Foundation Executive Director LeeAnn Wood with a $4,250 check. Wood informed the council that the foundation serves all 51 Lake Washington District schools, almost half of which are located in Kirkland. As an inaugural event, SummerFest organizers expected to host a crowd of about 10,000, while the beautiful weather, live music and art and food booths drew closer to 14,000.

KITH receives $10,000 grant Thanks to the generosity of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, the Master Builders Care Foundation is able to support Kirkland Interfaith Transitions in Housing (KITH) with a special $10,000 grant. The Master Builders Care Foundation grant will support a renovation at KITH’s Salisbury Court. The Care Foundation’s HomeAid program is restoring one of the four-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. Craig Krueger, president of the Master Builders Care Foundation explained, “We’re very proud to have facilitated this partnership.” Bank of America has long been a supporter of HomeAid, both locally and nationally. This particular funding comes from the bank’s recent Affordable Housing and Community Development grant making efforts, which recently awarded $200,000 to area nonprofits that are providing innovative housing solutions to address these critical need throughout Puget Sound. “Our goal is to work with HomeAid, the Master Builders Care Foundation and KITH to support, build and maintain housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives and we’re helping to improve the overall vitality of our community,” stated Tom Witte, senior vice president with Bank of America’s Home Builder Division and Master Builders Care Foundation board member. Jan Dickerman, executive director of KITH, couldn’t be more pleased. “The Master Builders Care Foundation and Bank of America have gone way beyond our expectations. Resources have been brought together that will significantly upgrade apartments Salisbury Court. Our families are extremely grateful to them.” The renovation is expected to be complete by midOctober.

on the line etc. But the “advantages” for those leaders/managers/ administrators of nonprofit organizations volunteering in other organizations are many and worthwhile, including chances to: • Demonstrate to the community that the leaders of one organization are not just centrally focused on their own organization and conscious of those in need (organizations) within the same community. • See how other organizations run, serve, communicate, recruit, interact with their volunteers, with those they serve. etc. • See how other organizations “manage” their professional staff and their volunteers. • Generate reciprocity, for example, gaining volunteers from the professional leadership staff of other organizations to assist in return – “when it is their turn.” • Demonstrate to the community that not-forprofits can and do work together rather than one organization trying to do everything, resulting in duplication of efforts. • Draw greater numbers of volunteers to the home organization by demon-

strating that volunteerism is a culture of the leadership and management of the home organization. I have provided management consultative services to numerous notfor-profit organizations primarily focused upon leadership, organizational structure and performance management. Rarely have I found leadership and management of these organizations valuing the input from other organizations serving similar community needs – not from a negative perspective – but rather because they don’t see the value of time expended in the effort. We can get too narrow in just looking at our own organization. Make it a priority to not only visit other organizations and seek mutual improvements, but in serving each other in the grand plan of serving the community. I would be happy to introduce one organization to another for this purpose. Remember – send in suggested volunteer opportunities to the Kirkland Reporter, attention: Bill LaMarche.

focused on serving those in need are “consumers of volunteers.” Many times, in the heat of battle, these organizations may lose track of what volunteering is all about – staying focused instead of just “getting the job done,” completing their mission and sometimes forgetting what it is like to volunteer. Therefore I challenge the leaders and administrators of those organizations to volunteer themselves – to pick one opportunity to volunteer with another organization that is also serving those in need.

hat? Gulp? You don’t understand – I’m busy providing needy services to needy people – I’m one of the good guys! I don’t have the time to volunteer; I’m too busy doing what I’m doing! Wow – this isn’t what I expected from this column. In the last several weeks I have carried this challenge to numerous organizations that have solicited volunteers to assist them in serving needy people in needy communities. Initially the reception was a bit incredulous, sometimes a bit threatening – until I had a chance to explain. This is not an attack! Rather a way of demonstrating that your organizations can both learn from and serve each other. Far too often nonprofits and those organizations

mission is to help individuals with serious mental illness and their family members by offering information, education, referral services, support and advocacy. As the sole fund-raising event for NAMI’s operations across the state, the NAMI Walk of Washington is crucial for the 34-year-old organization. Organizers expect as many as 1,500 participants. The walk will start at 9:30 a.m., with check-in beginning at 8 a.m. The three-mile course (five kilometers) extends from Marina Park in Kirkland to Carillon Point and back. A shorter course is also planned. Radio personality and Seattle business columnist Patti Payne will emcee the event, and the Mariner Moose, on break from baseball season duties, will stop by to cheer on participants. The popular Seattle band Down North, known for alternative funk and soul, will perform. To register, go to www.
