Citizens glimpse into police officers’ world at academy Samantha Pak

As recently as two months ago, David Kemp’s opinion about law enforcement was less than flattering. The 14-year Redmond resident had had a few casual encounters with the police and said these gave him the impression that law enforcement officers were “overly cautious and standoffish.” “From the reporting I have heard over the years about police brutality and misuse of power, the high numbers of people incarcerated in the U.S., I thought they were all a bunch of gun-happy, peoplebashing bullies,” Kemp said. But now after about a month and a half

Evergreen’s principal takes to the roof for a day After encouraging students to raise $40K in magazine drive, they succeed and Cassidy works from above Samantha Pak

The day in the life of a school principal often consists of emails to fellow educators, signing off on various orders of school business, attending meetings, interacting with students and more. For Evergreen Middle School (EMS) principal Sean Cassidy, things were no different Wednesday except instead of conducting business from his office, he did his job from a place with high visibility. Literally. On Wednesday, Cassidy took to the school roof and worked there all day as a result of a challenge he threw out to his students. ng Session!


To encourage and motivate them to

participate in the school’s annual magazine drive and fund-raiser, he told students that if they raised $40,000 he would work from the roof for a day. The students brought in $43,333 — almost twice as much as last year’s $24,000. “It was pretty substantial,” Cassidy said about the difference between this year and last year’s totals. The money raised will support the associated student body (ASB), which would pay for things such as sports uniforms, transportation costs for sports teams, school dances, assemblies, end-of-year parties and more. “ASB activities are one of the things you tend to remember year after year,” Cassidy said about the importance of funding activities that enrich students’ overall school experiences. True to his word, the new principal could be spotted on the school roof above one of the courtyards all day Wednesday — with the exception of about an hour during which Cassidy attended a meeting he claimed he couldn’t cancel or reschedule. He issued the challenge back in September in 70-degree weather, which made the [ more roof page 7 ]

of attending the Redmond Police Department’s (RPD) Citizens’ Police Academy, he has a better idea of what officers do and why. The academy offers 10 weekly classes and gives the public a deeper look into the police department. From department history and ethics, to records and evidence, to the department’s traffic, SWAT and K-9 units, the academy covers a broad range of information. “I really had no idea how they were going to fill the time, but after the first three-hour scheduled session went over an hour and a half, I soon realized I didn’t understand half of what I thought I knew about what they did,” Kemp said about his initial expectations.

The RPD’s Citizens’ Police Academy began in the 1990s and ran for about a decade and a half before the department put it aside as they were not able to dedicate as much time to it as it deserved, said crime prevention officer Mike Dowd. But since its return last month, Dowd said things have been going well. Citizens must apply to participate in the academy and Dowd said they currently have about 20 students including neighborhood watch leaders, a City Council member, prospective RPD employee and representative from the Lake Washington School District. Participants also range in age from early 20s to mid 70s. [ more academy page 8 ]

Redmond’s Searles wears Miss Washington USA crown Andy Nystrom

“Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.” That’s what Redmond’s Cassandra Searles said to herself when she stood at the front of the stage with fellow top-two finalist Whitney Young, waiting to see who would be crowned 2013 Miss Washington USA last Sunday at the Highline Performing Arts Center in Burien. “Don’t pass out.” Another thought that popped into Searles’ head when the two women waited to see whose name would be called as the winner of the two-day event, which featured swimsuit and evening-gown competitions and private and on-stage interviews. In her fourth year competing for Miss Washington USA, Searles, 24, finally grabbed the title, sending a wave of emotions through her body while the coveted crown sat perched atop her head. “I think I had a pucker face, as if I’d just eaten a lemon,” said Searles, a University of Washington, Bothell graduate who works as a commercial bank representative at Sterling Bank in Bellevue. “I really tried to not cry, but I don’t think I was successful at it.” Searles achieved sterling results in all three phases of the competition, which started with 22 contestants on the first day and finished with 11 women on the second day. “I was really happy to win this year. I worked really hard,” said Searles, who finished as fourth runner-up last year and in the top 10 the two prior years. “I just kept coming

I started when I was 20, and the competition helped mold me, helped me mature. Standing in front of hundreds of people gives you a lot of confidence.” As a 20-year-old, Searles said she was shy — now she’s outgoing wherever she roams, whether it’s at competitions or in her professional life.

location have not been revealed. The Mount Si High graduate has owned a home in Redmond for three years and works out religiously at the Redmond Gold’s Gym. She’s only participated in pageants for four years, jumping on board when a fellow Business Networking International member suggested she send in an application to compete. Pageant organizers gave her the nod all four years and now she’s hooked. Over the next few months, Searles will make a host of public appearances, including one at a hair salon that’s utilizing pink hair coloring to mark October as breast-cancer awareness month. She’ll also continue to speak with children about capturing their dreams through the Junior Achievement program. One of Searles’ dreams is to work for the FBI someday and help counter terrorist efforts, such as money laundering that funds terrorism, she said. She’s become interested in this scenario while working in the banking industry and wants to be involved on a larger scale in the government realm. Searles discussed this dream during her on-stage interview during the pageant finals. During the interview with the judges, Searles also paraphrased a famous quote that she lives by: “God answers prayers in three ways: ‘Yes,’ ‘Not yet’ and ‘There’s something better in store.’” “Not yet… not yet … I just kept coming back,” Searles said of her pageant experiences. “And I tried to persevere.” Now she’s wearing the crown of success.

Hank Myers: A prescription for great government I “inherited” Hank Myers (48th District, Pos. 2 candidate) as a patient at the PolyClinic when his previous physician retired. During one of our meetings, we talked about life outside the clinic and we discovered that he lives only a couple of blocks from my family church. Our church had hoped to rebuild and expand, but our project managers ran into a number of regulatory obstacles. Unless we could find a solution, our church would have to abandon this project which we had dedicated so much time and effort to and possibly leave Redmond. Hank researched the regulations and realized that the requirements were related to the construction of mega-churches, not our medium-sized family organization. Some regulation changes would be required, so Hank put us in touch with appropriate officials in the planning department and stepped away. We have now moved into our new facility, and others have benefited from Hank’s foresight. Our immediate next-door neighbor is a mosque of the same size as our new facility. Hank is dedicated to building a diverse community. Who would have guessed that even during a routine physical exam that Hank would be thinking of ways to improve our lives and not just his. Hank listens, and Hank helps.

Roger Goodman: A public safety champion Forty-fifth District state Rep. Roger Goodman’s strong record on drunk driving has been outrageously distorted by his opponent through false robo-calls and TV ads. On the contrary, Goodman has worked to keep us safe on the road by passing drunk-driving legislation that is a model for the nation. According to the Washington State Traffic Commission, Goodman’s legislation has resulted in a 36 percent decline in alcohol-related deaths and serious injuries on Washington’s roads in the last two years. Voters should know that public safety is one of Goodman’s top priorities and that he has been enormously successful at passing laws that make us safer on the roads. In fact, Goodman has won both the Mothers Against Drunk Driving’s national “Legislator of the Year” award and the “Safety Champion” award from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration because of his ground-breaking work on ignition interlock devices which keep drunk drivers off the road. Look it up and vote with the facts. Roger Goodman is a public safety champion.

Cyrus Habib: Working to improve quality of life I care deeply about the Eastside. Not only was I born and raised in Bellevue, I spent over 15 years serving the greater Eastside community as the executive director of the Bellevue Family YMCA and vice president of the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce. And it is because of my knowledge and love of the Eastside community that I am supporting Cyrus Habib for state representative in the 48th District. There is a reason why the Seattle Times and the mayors of Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond and Medina (some Republican, some Democrat) have endorsed Cyrus in this race. It is because for years he has worked to improve the quality of life on the

Eastside as a human services commissioner for the City of Bellevue, as a trustee of the Bellevue College Foundation, as a board member of the Bellevue Downtown Association, and with me in the Bellevue Rotary Club. As a lawyer who works with technology startups, he understands our region’s unique spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. It is not every day that a Rhodes Scholar and Yale Law School graduate decides to throw his hat in the ring for state representative, but, having known Cyrus for years, I know that public service is at the heart of his life philosophy. Finally, Cyrus is 100 percent pro-choice, which is why Planned Parenthood Votes has made his race a priority this year. He will stand up for access to contraception, women’s health care and marriage equality, and that alone makes him a natural pick in this race. You may have noticed Cyrus’ sunglasses — he has been blind since the age of 8. But to say that this has never slowed him down is an understatement. He uses text-to-speech software on his computer that allows him to fire off emails and create documents faster than nearly anyone. He is living proof that hard work combined with opportunity equals great results. Please vote for Cyrus Habib and let your friends know to do the same.

Keri Stout, Eastside

Joel Hussey: The right person for the job at the right time Redmond residents, ballots are in the mail and its time to make a decision. People of any political persuasion can agree that the reps we’ve sent to Olympia are not getting it done. Our budgets are blown every year, the tough business climate impacts tax revenues and one of the most frustrating consequences for our state is that our kids’ education isn’t funded correctly. I want to ask you to vote for Joel Hussey because he is the right person for the job at the right time. Joel has a sharp financial mind and proven realworld leadership as a CEO, school board president and former president of Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association. He’s a man of great character and empathy. Frankly we are lucky that a guy of his caliber wants to serve as a legislator, knows which problems to solve and can bring a common sense approach for tackling them. His opponent Roger Goodman has served three terms, and done some nice work on the legislative front for public safety. But when I read his re-election pitch that he now wants to focus on business development, I have to ask based on his career as an attorney, what experience is he going

to bring to bear to solve the biggest problems facing our state? The state budget needs structural change to avoid perpetual crisis. We need financial expertise to fix it. We need people with business experience to put the right conditions in place for growth as a healthy economy helps everyone. Properly funding our kids’ education? Moves from impossible under the current way of doing things to probable if we put the right people in place. Please vote for Joel Hussey this November, we need him as the 45th District representative.

Referendum 74 reactions: • The hope in approving Referendum 74 is that it will improve the lives of same-sex couples and their adopted children. However, approving R74 will not help. Government can change every law, but government can’t change that a marriage between a man and a woman, who desire to have children, has the natural potential of being the best relationship any of us can be a part of. I have a friend who was attracted to men. He lived in a gay relationship for many years. His family prayed for him, and after years of living with a gay partner he decided to change his life. He is now married to a wonderful women and has a child of his own. When I was in elementary school, they did not teach what a family was. However, when I went to church, they taught me that raising a family is the best and brightest purpose of this life and the next. We should all be grateful for committed gay and lesbian parents who are working hard to teach and love their children. However, I do not believe that redefining marriage will improve their efforts. Government may be able to redefine its laws, but government has no power to bring the natural benefits of marriage to a same-sex couple. I think we should all love each other by encouraging one another to live the ideals we truly believe.

Michael Reynolds, Redmond

• Your Oct. 19 story about same-sex marriage says that after their gay wedding in Canada, Donald Schmidt and Donald Osmer had to fill out extra paperwork at the border when returning to the United States. That is a federal matter, which approving Referendum 74 would not change. As for state law, Washington’s “everything but marriage” domestic partnerships not only afford same-sex couples official state recognition of their relationships, but also provide the same legal rights [ more letters page 6 ]

[6] October 26, 2012 [ Letters from page 5]

as married couples have. The law redefining marriage provides same-sex couples no additional rights or benefits because they already have full legal equality. Rather, if R-74 were to be approved, marriage would be redefined for all Washingtonians. Common sense terms like “husband” and “wife” would no longer be used. Same-sex couples have the right to live as they please, but not to redefine marriage for all of society.

Article downplays the seriousness of Rosa Parks overcrowding Unfortunately, an article in the Oct. 19 Redmond Reporter serves to downplay the seriousness of the overcrowding at Rosa Parks Elementary School. (“Pierce plans to implement temporary boundary for Rosa Parks.”) True enough, to point this out won’t make any difference in how the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) will have to try to cope with the situation. But let’s keep in mind that parents and students are those most affected. They’re the ones who really have to cope! Parents deserve an accurate and straightforward presentation of the facts. Let them face the realities too. The Redmond Reporter article repeated Superintendent Traci Pierce’s statement from her Sept. 27 PowerPoint presentation at the school. Pierce stated that Rosa Parks Elementary “is 11 percent over capacity at 793 students.” At best, the 11 percent figure is misleading. The superintendent could even be perceived as disingenuous. When the number 713 is used as the baseline for calculating the percentage by which Rosa Parks is over capacity, the result is 11 per-

cent. But the more realistic baseline that should have been used is 483, the number of students for which the school was built. Calculated by the proper arithmetic using the current enrollment of 793, up from 483, Rosa Parks right now is 64 percent over capacity — not the 11 percent reported! In the PowerPoint presentation (slide 9), under the column titled School Capacity, the number 713 was listed for Rosa Parks. Granted, the phrase “includes portables” appeared parenthetically within that column heading. Maybe some parents gave it a passing thought, maybe not. That phrase received little or no mention orally by Pierce. The same figures were presented on slide 13 — Long Term Projections — with two additional columns. That slide lists 1,034 as the enrollment projection for 2015-16. Calculated by the proper arithmetic, Rosa Parks will be 114 percent over capacity — not the 45 percent reported! The generally accepted

Butler & Butler!


definition of school capacity is: the maximum number of students a building is designed to reasonably accommodate — not including portables. When unexpected increases in enrollment occur and portables do become necessary, school utilization is the descriptive term for the total number of students on a school’s campus. That’s an important distinction. Synonyms are “permanent capacity” and “temporary capacity,” respectively. Regardless of the chosen terminology, the distinction should be made for the sake of clarity, openness, and “transparency.” Dr. Pierce was not openly challenged at the parent community meeting over the figures she presented. But the potential obfuscation and downplaying was pointed out at the next meeting of the school board on Oct. 8 during the public comment period. Apparently no newspaper staff writer was there to report the need for clarification. School Board Director Siri Bliesner is to be commended for spontaneously commenting to her fellow board directors her agreement that the distinction regarding “capacity” should

be made. Some discussion did follow immediately. Perhaps ironically, an awareness of how truly serious the overcrowding is just might motivate — or should we say jolt — parents and other voters to approve a school bond issue that is certain to be put before us in February 2014. That date will seem to come quite soon. Even with the best-case scenario of the bond passing, a new school would not be completed until 2016-17. Call it long-term or short — we probably don’t want to see 10 more portables taking up what’s left of Rosa’s playground at that time! (Four portables on an interim basis is what’s considered “permissible.”) Parents and voters throughout the district, when the date comes — and it will seem soon — please vote to approve the bond issue. Rosa Parks Elementary is in a very serious situation now. Given that demographics do change, sometimes dramatically, the next attendance area affected may be yours. Think ahead. If at all possible, please find a way to adjust your own budget so as to support the bond.

School district forms temporary boundary committee for Parks, Wilder Staff Report

Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce has formed a committee to develop criteria for the temporary boundary for Rosa Parks and Laura Ingalls Wilder elementary schools. This has been in response to the overcrowding issue at Rosa Parks, which has 795 students enrolled this year. Wilder’s enrollment is 347 this year with district officials projecting an enrollment of 238 by the 2015-16 school year. In an email to Rosa Parks parents, Pierce said they have “determined that the schools involved in the temporary boundary will be Rosa Parks and Wilder elementary schools. No other schools will be involved in this [ more schools page 7 ]

In addition to their principal’s school-wide challenge, individual teachers also put out challenges — often against other teachers. One example included teachers competing against teachers who attended rival colleges. The teacher whose class raised the least amount of money would have to sport gear of their rival college for a day. “Our staff really got on board,” Cassidy said. “It was really exciting seeing the kids just having fun (as a result of staff participation).” Cassidy said another teacher shaved his head as a challenge payout. While Cassidy said he is willing

Evergreen Middle School Principal Sean Cassidy works away from his office up on the school roof on Wednesday. SAMANTHA PAK, Redmond Reporter to do anything to get his students pumped up, he admits to drawing the line at shaving his head. “(My hairs) may be going soon and I don’t know if I want to encourage their departure from my scalp,” he said. While a number of teachers have already paid out on their challenges, others haven’t. Valerie Martin, who teaches leadership and language arts at EMS, said after winning a classroom challenge against another teacher, she will get to throw a pie in the other teacher’s face at an upcoming assembly. In addition, Martin is the school’s ASB adviser and was tasked with the job of getting the school excited. She worked with the EMS executive board, which is made up of eighth-graders,

on how to get the school pumped for the fund-raiser. The first thing Martin and her students did was come up with a theme, which was mustaches, as in, “We ‘mustache’ the cash.” They began drawing mustaches all over campus. “Kids were so confused,” Martin said with a laugh. Things became even more confusing when they posted head shots of EMS staff throughout the school and then proceeded to draw mustaches on them, as well. Martin said this got students asking questions and by the time they learned about the fund-raiser, they got really excited. She added that once the students realized what the money would go toward — the students themselves — people got more enthusiastic.


Delaney Campbell, one of the students on the ASB executive board, said it took a little bit of work to get students to understand how they would benefit from the fund-raiser, but after giving out several examples people got the message. She added that much of the excitement could also be credited to trading ninth-graders for sixth-graders, thanks to the district-wide grade reconfiguration. She said sixth-graders tend to get more excited about these types of activities than ninth-graders. Martin credits Cassidy’s enthusiasm and participation for getting students excited and Campbell agreed. “It just shows how much he cares about us,” she said about the principal’s

challenges. “He cares so we should care.” While Cassidy helped motivate students, he said Martin played a large role, as well. “She was a key piece in raising the money that we did,” he said. While raising money to support ASB activities is important, Martin said the fund-raiser also helped boost morale at EMS and bring the school together — especially as two-thirds of the school is new. She said kids really want to get involved in school activities and get invited to participate and her favorite part of working on the magazine fund-raiser was seeing this happen first hand. “I think it made them feel involved a lot quicker,” she said.

temporary process.” Pierce wrote that she has also informed Wilder parents about the temporary boundary. The boundary committee will be made up of Rosa Parks and Wilder principals Tina Livingston and Steve Roetcisoender, LWSD’s Redmond Learning Community school support director Jon Holmen and district staff members Barbara Posthumus (business services), Jeff Miles (transportation) and Kathryn Reith (communications). Bob Collard will lead the committee. Collard is an outside consultant, formerly assistant superintendent both for Lake Washington and for Everett school districts. The temporary boundary committee’s first meeting will be Oct. 25 and parents will able to provide feedback online beginning early November. “At the end of November, we will hold a public meeting to introduce possible boundary scenarios,” Pierce said in her email. “At that meeting and through the website, the committee will gather parent feedback on the scenarios.” She went on to say the committee will make a recommendation to her in early January and Pierce will take her recommendation to the board that month. The goal is to have this process completed prior to kindergarten registration in February. Pierce said the committee will communicate a more complete schedule to parents after its first meeting. She added that because of the tight timeline to complete the work before the February kindergarten registration process begins, parents will receive communications on a regular basis between now and the end of this calendar year.

idea of working on the roof a little more bearable. But with the arrival of autumn and the cold and rain that comes with it in the Pacific Northwest, Cassidy said he had his fingers crossed earlier in the week for a dry Wednesday. While the day wasn’t completely dry, it wasn’t completely miserable and Cassidy arrived at school prepared to face the elements. Armed with a heavy jacket, beanie hat and hand warmers, he said it wasn’t too bad working outside, adding that there are people who work outdoors all the time and he just had to keep that in mind. To stay dry in the case of rain, his makeshift desk was placed underneath a University of Washington tent — the kind often seen at tailgate parties — which Cassidy brought in himself. “No one got me diddly,” he said.

[ ACADEMY from page 1]

Marie Emerson, who has lived in Redmond off and on for more than 20 years, participated in the academy the first time it was given about 13 years ago and decided to sign up a second time. “I was interested in seeing what was new,” she said. Emerson is originally from a small town in New York that didn’t have a police department but was under the jurisdiction of the county sheriff, who was located on the other side of the county. With her limited interaction with law enforcement, Emerson said her first experiences have been with the RPD and she has always been impressed. “We are very blessed in Redmond to have such a wonderful department in my view,” she said.

a sense of humor doing an ever-changing and extremely tough and thankless job. He was also surprised about some of the topics the academy covered such as SWAT. He said he didn’t realize a community the size of Redmond warranted such a team. “With every subject matter expert introduced came a complete realignment of my preconceived notion about how they ‘should’ be acting,” he said. “I didn’t necessarily like everything I heard, but I understood how these (processes) and pro-

cedures evolved into what they are and how they are designed to protect the officer, as well as the person subjected to their process — willing or not.” Although this is her second time in the academy, Emerson said she has learned a few new things, as well. The academy recently covered accident investigations and Emerson was very surprised to see the high-tech equipment officers use to document an accident scene. “I just had no concept of that type of technology,” she said. Emerson recommends

the academy for residents who are interested in learning more about the police department and the city’s inner workings, meeting new people and becoming more involved in the community. Kemp said his time in the academy has actually prompted him to do the latter. “I have gained a great respect and a sense of pride for our police and will probably volunteer to help out in the future because I think they are a quality organization I’d like to contribute to,” he said.

Redmond Zombies set to Thrill the World on Saturday Samantha Pak

For the last three years, the undead have taken over Redmond Town Center (RTC) for one day in October and this year will be no different. Come Saturday, hundreds of zombies will be dancing their way through Center Street Plaza as part of the fourth annual Thrill the World event, hosted by Redmond Zombies and SecondStory Repertory (SSR). Dancers will be performing a routine to Michael Jackson’s classic song, “Thriller,” and adding their numbers to the annual worldwide attempt to set the record for largest simultaneous dance. This year’s dance will be at noon on Saturday. To take part in the “Thriller” dance, participants must have learned the official version of the dance before Saturday. “Chief zombie” Teresa Osborn held a number of dance workshops to teach the routine and while there are no more workshops, she said there will still be a lot to do for the whole family

throughout the day. “We’ve got such a lot more on (than just the ‘Thriller’ dance),” she said. Makeup experts will be onsite to apply zombie makeup for souvenir photos and local musicians and actors will be performing throughout the day. In addition, there will be a scavenger hunt, retailers throughout RTC will offer special discounts for customers in zombie wear and restaurants such as Matts’ Rotisserie will also offer discounts and special zombie cocktails. There will also be a costume contest and prize giveaways such as Premium Plus tickets to iPic Theaters, manicures and pedicures from Studio Nails, Season 14 subscriptions from SecondStory Repertory and more. “This is a community event for the whole family,” Osborn said about including RTC shops and restaurants in the festivities this year. The net proceeds raised from the Thrill the World event, which Osborn said comes from dance workshop fees beforehand, as

well as activities and product sales on the day of the event, will benefit SecondStory Repertory’s education program, SecondStory Conservatory (SSC). All the money raised directly impacts students by keeping costs down and making arts education accessible to everyone, regardless of income level. Osborn said with regular budget cuts to public education, arts and physical education are usually the first items on the list to be cut. Osborn said when kids are just sitting in class all day, they don’t have the opportunity to exercise or be creative. “You’re stunting their growth,” Osborn said. Samantha Holsworth, education director for SSC, said the money raised through last year’s Thrill the World event helped fund scholarships for six kids attend their summer workshops. She added that this is a big deal for the kids as they get to be part of a show that has been produced on a professional level. In addition to summer workshops, which are open

At Saturday’s Thrill the World event at Redmond Town Center, hundreds of zombies will participate in a worldwide dance to Michael Jackson’s classic song, “Thriller.” File photo to kids ages 13-18, SSC also holds classes throughout the year for kids ages 3-13. The money raised from Thrill the World also helps pay for supplies for these classes, as well as show royalty fees and SSC’s outreach programs with local schools. Holsworth said there are 29 elementary and middle schools in the local school

districts that don’t have any in-house drama programs and need to hire out to produce shows. The money from Thrill the World allows SSC to do outreach and build connections with these schools, Holsworth said. SecondStory connected with Redmond Zombies three years ago before the first event when Osborn ap-

proached the theater about raising money for the education program. Holsworth said the fact that someone stepped forward to offer to raise money for their program, unprompted, shows that the community appreciates what they do and wants to say “thank you” and wants them to keep doing what they’re doing.

CONFIDENCE BOOSTER Martial arts changes the life of a formerly bullied young man for the better

and ninth-grade years, Spangler and Benedict discovered Z-Ultimate Self Defense Studios in Redmond while driving around town. There was a man in the parking lot demonstrating various moves and he caught the then 13-year-old Spangler’s interest. “Needless to say, it wasn’t just fun to watch but I couldn’t take my eyes off of the power and grace he commanded that I had longed for my entire life,” he said. Sensing her son’s interest, Benedict approached the man, Z-Ultimate chief instructor Bryan Buckhorn, with her concerns about her son’s bullying issue and signed them both up for classes. “They were my first students (in Washington),” said Buckhorn, who had just opened the Redmond studio at the time.

Redmond native Trent Spangler spent his early school days being bullied, but martial arts helped him gain the confidence to speak up for himself and others. Courtesy photos Once he started classes and began learning the rules and movements of martial arts, things slowly began to change for Spangler. He said he was less angry and felt more in control of his life and as a result, became more confident. And as weeks passed,

Spangler said he began talking to people who had treated him like a ghost just a month before. “I walked taller and above all I learned how to deescalate a situation, instead of creating conflict,” he said. Spangler practiced Shaolin Chu’an Fa Kempo

As a kid, Trent Spangler had been bullied off and on from the time he entered kindergarten. While the Redmond native, now 20 and attending Western Washington University, admits he wasn’t completely innocent — stealing classmates’ pencils and returning them a couple minutes later just to get attention — things got particularly difficult for him when he entered Rose Hill Junior High School (now Rose Hill Middle School). “Hateful words, laughed at, shunning and although I was never ‘beaten up’ I was pushed around once in a while,” Spangler said about the type of treatment he received. “Needless to say my self-confidence was far below average and (I) even contem-

plated suicide at one point.” Spangler’s mother, Toni Benedict, said her son approached her one day in eighth grade and asked if he could go on steroids so he could be strong enough to get the bullies at school to leave him alone. Spangler and Benedict never brought the issue to the school’s attention because Spangler didn’t want to be labeled a “rat” for telling on his peers. “As a single mom, I had no idea how to help my son deal with these problems effectively,” Benedict said. “My motherly advice to ‘just walk away’ was clearly not working for him. It was absolutely heartbreaking to see my child being victimized and the damage it was causing to his self-esteem, grades and general loss of feeling safe and happy in the world.” In the summer of 2005, between Spangler’s eighth-

Samantha Pak

and although continuing to train regularly became too difficult with him moving to Bellingham for college, Buckhorn said before Spangler moved away, he was ready to test for his seconddegree black belt. Buckhorn said bullies often pick on individuals who they view as weak. One of the byproducts of martial arts is confidence and once this began to show in Spangler, the bullying issue disappeared. Buckhorn described Spangler’s transformation from a small kid who never spoke up, did anything or went anywhere, to a “rockstar” who joined the Z-Ultimate demonstration team, participated in competitions, joined various clubs and teams in high school and moved away for college as the most perfect results a teacher could ask for. With the impact ZUltimate had on his life Spangler said he would recommend any sport — but especially martial arts — to children dealing with bullying. “I have known kids in (martial arts) who told me that they used to bully others but learned through martial arts about the mistakes they were making,” he said. “It is a great way for kids to get exercise, learn to be better people, and live a better life.”

Whitney Ballen: Redmond’s music maker, teller of secrets Lauren Becherer UW News Lab

Never tell Whitney Ballen a secret. She’ll probably end up writing a song about it. The University of Washington senior from Redmond is not afraid to be brutally honest, especially when it comes to her lyrics. “It’s mostly about secrets I’ve been told,” she said of her new album, “White Feathers, White Linens.” “On the record there’s excerpts of people telling me secrets that I recorded without them knowing. Yeah, I’m a creep.” A clever creep, if anything. The things friends tell her, the conversations she overhears on the bus and the speculations she has about other people’s lives create the groundwork in which her raw sound is rooted. “I definitely incorporate some stuff from my own life, but I don’t really have that interesting of a life,” Ballen, 21, said. One could hardly agree. Since her junior year at Redmond High School,

w: on vie Also ’s n wome from tings in A P d n A the l A it s f o

Singer-songwriter Whitney Ballen got her start at the Redmond Old Fire House Teen Center. The 21-year-old University of Washington senior has a new album out, “White Feathers, White Linens.” Courtesy of Jennifer Cheng Ballen has been breaking into the Seattle music scene with her irresistible sound. Her songs have played on KEXP, Jet City Stream, “Locals Only” night on 107.7 The End and Seattle

podcasts. She has jammed with many local musicians and big names like Rocky Votolato. In ninth grade, Ballen picked up her dad’s “really old, ugly, acoustic guitar”

as she described it, and taught herself to play. She now plays a vintage, smallbodied guitar with a rich sound. Her style can best be classified as folk, although her pure vocal tone is dif-

ficult to assign to a specific musical genre. “Whitney has a distinct voice and a knack for nuance beyond her age,” said Rana Shmait, program assistant of teen programs in the City of Redmond. “She’s always been a great guitarist and complex songwriter. Whitney also has a funny and sweet stage presence that the crowd always enjoys.” Shmait helped Ballen get her start performing in her hometown of Redmond at the Old Fire House Teen Center, where the singer played her first show at age 15. “She’s always been such a positive force wherever she goes, and we were fortunate to have her involved at the Teen Center,” Shmait said. “It’s been a privilege to see her come into her own talent and confidence as she’s grown as a musician.” Since her teenage years, Ballen has graced the stages of Seattle venues and shows that include The Vera Project, Folklife, EMP Sky Church, The Crocodile and more. As she has grown, so

has her songwriting style and vocal sound. “My voice has gotten extremely high,” she said. “It’s really weird and I don’t know how I feel about it. I can’t control it though.” Ballen recently split from her band, Whitney Ballen & The Intimates, to return to her origins in solo acoustic performance. Her former lead guitarist, Trevor Boone, said that the transition was smooth for Ballen and her band members. “After a while it was decided she needed to go back to her roots and stop trying to write songs for a band, which can put a lot of pressure on someone who’s written only on guitar her entire life,” Boone said. “I think it’s a wonderful decision and again proves she’s an honest artist and doesn’t want to create anything that isn’t 100 percent her.” Ballen noted the difference between playing in a group versus alone. “Playing by myself acoustically is a lot different than playing with a band,” she said.

[ ballen from page 11] “When I played with a band, it’s a little more upbeat and not so diary-like. Playing alone, it’s hard to demand that a crowd pay attention, but often people do quiet down and they end up listening for some reason. They definitely don’t have to, but I’ve noticed that people hush, and people pay attention, so that’s cool.” It’s not uncommon for Ballen’s voice to send a chill down the spines of her audience. Her gentle tenor surprises anyone who has never witnessed the tiny blonde take control of a room the instant her vocals kill the silence. “I don’t have anything to demand the audience’s attention, but it happens in certain environments. It makes me realize that people are paying attention and it scares the crap out of me,” she said with a dimpled giggle. Steve Norman plays pedal steel guitar to ac-

2012 mond of Red

According to pedal-steel guitarist Steve Norman, Redmond’s Whitney Ballen (pictured) “has a delicate, subtle voice that carries some substantial emotional weight despite its lilt.” Courtesy of Jennifer Cheng company some of Ballen’s tracks. “She has a delicate, subtle voice that carries some substantial emotional weight despite its lilt,” Norman said. “She is an honest singer, someone who cares more about the song than style. She has something to say and feels what she does, it’s

not just going through the motions of being a performer.” Ballen’s freshest album, “White Feathers, White Linens,” is a compilation of music played with her band and by herself. Boone, who has seen Ballen develop as an artist throughout her career, produced the record.

“I was really appealed to the honestly portrayed in her music and it was really fun trying to capture that on record,” Boone said. “We wanted to do a record that would challenge people and focus on just a little girl and her acoustic guitar. We decided to do a record that wasn’t super produced and as raw as possible.” Each album was pressed onto 12-inch vinyl by the artist herself, who wanted to present the tracks she worked so hard on in a more tangible form. Each record also includes an MP3 card so the songs can be downloaded in digital form. “White Feathers, White Linens” is sold at Seattle record shops and at her shows. “Writing my songs doesn’t take long, it just happens randomly,” Ballen said. “I don’t sit down and write a song, all of a sudden I’ll just be singing something. I’m a very shy person in general, but I’ll be really honest on stage

and it’s really weird, I don’t know why.” With so much of her time spent networking and connecting with other Seattle artists, there’s no end in sight for this blooming artist. Ballen said that if she gave music up now she wouldn’t know what to do with herself. Her former band members are confident that Ballen will thrive in her musical endeavors. “Whitney is really young and still finding out exactly what she wants to do with her music and I think it’s good for her to try different arrangements and collaborate with as many people as possible,” Boone said. Norman said that Ballen’s style is unique in that she doesn’t sound like anyone else he plays with. “I trust her songwriting and know that she has a great future musically and I would love to continue to be a part of that,” he said. Up next for Ballen is a

show at the Columbia City Theater and a new set of songs to be released early next year. Her goals for the Seattle music scene are to play gigs at Bumbershoot and The Neptune Theatre, while continuing collaboration with local artists. When she’s not writing songs, Ballen likes to hike, run, snuggle with her cat, drive down random roads, sew and draw. But making music isn’t a chore for her, it’s second nature. “The reason I haven’t stopped playing is because I’ve noticed that it’s just something that I do,” she said. “It’s just like waking up and brushing my teeth, it’s just there, and I can’t get rid of it. I’ve thought about what would happen if I didn’t play, but it just doesn’t work like that.”

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

Celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month Cancer Free and Enjoying Her Child-Care Duties

two children in their 20s and have lived in Redmond for 19 years.

When Patti Margeson found out she had breast cancer, she admits to being angry and sad, but the Redmond resident wasn’t going to let her body and mind back down. “I never thought that this would take me — death was never an option. I knew I caught it early. I had a great attitude about that,” said Margeson, who learned of the cancer following her yearly mammogram appointment in November of 2011. The 49-year-old home child-care businesswoman first fought through one surgery, during which doctors removed a 5-centimeter lump from her right breast. She also had a total hysterectomy because she learned she had BRCA 1, a genetic mutation in which her body doesn’t fight estrogen-based cancer; there was an 85 percent of her getting cancer again and an increased risk for ovarian cancer. Margeson’s husband, Hank, a Redmond City Councilmember, accompanied her to every doctor appointment. Patti feels their relationship has strengthened from when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, throughout her seven weeks of radiation treatments until the present day. She’s cancer free and enjoying her childcare duties, two-mile walks with a friend around Redmond, going to the gym, riding her horse and living her life to the fullest. “She is a very strong woman. This knocked her down a little bit, but nothing can beat her,” said Hank, who has been married to Patti for 27 years. They have

Both Hank and Patti have supportive friends who have helped them through the situation. For Hank, a member of the Northwest Baseball Umpires Association, he’s bonded with his fellow umpires, some of whose wives had breast cancer, as well. “It’s something I don’t normally talk about with my male friends. This helps me to know I wasn’t going through this alone,” Hank said. Patti’s friend, Jenn Nudelman, inspired her to become involved with the Susan G. Komen Foundation by attending its three-day breast-cancer awareness walk throughout the Seattle area in 2011. Nudelman was diagnosed twice with breast cancer and Patti felt the need to support her friend. At the closing ceremony at Memorial Stadium, Patti “was just completely moved by it, and I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this is such a big deal.’” Last month, Patti joined her friends Todd Squire and Tasia Logan at the Komen three-day walk. This time, Patti was a walker and she completed 55 of the 60 miles because she got blisters on her feet. Five miles short wasn’t a big deal for Patti, who gave it her all and knows she’ll be a part of the Komen family for years to come. “It’s my opinion that once you get involved with this — and if you do it with your heart and soul — there’s something you’re touched with,” she said. “My team, which is called the Breastketeers, are super supportive — it’s like a bonding, family type thing.”

‘The Glass Castle’ author shares stories at event KAITLIN GROVES

About 1,700 local philanthropists raised $1.1 million for Redmondbased Hopelink, during a fund-raiser lunch at the Meydenbauer Convention Center in downtown Bellevue on 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 posi-

It’s about giving them hope for the future.” Besides Walls, other speakers at the luncheon included Connie Chapin, a former Hopelink client and current board member, as well as John “Pat” Vache, the chairman of the board, and Marilyn Mason-Plunkett, the president and CEO. Several of the speakers mentioned the “chang-

ing face” of their clients, because of the changing economy. Clients now include more former managers, professionals and others who lost their jobs and have been unable to regain their footing. Hopelink provides food, housing, family development, adult education, transportation, energy assistance and emergency financial assistance to financially struggling people in the area.

Hopelink Employment Program Eastsiders receive LENi awards receives $60K grant from Boeing

Root Connection earns county business award The Root Connection CSA Farm near Redmond has been named King County’s 2012 Rural Small Business of the Year. Farmer Claire Thomas, founder and operating manager of the Root Connection, and Jeff Schmidt, farm foreman, received the award from King County Executive Dow Constantine at an award ceremony on Oct. 10. The farm, located at 13607 Woodinville-Redmond Road Northeast, is the Northwest’s first CSA farm. It has been offering its 400 member families fresh, chemical-free produce since 1987. Thomas has also been a driving force behind Farms For Life, an innovative nonprofit that buys produce from local farmers and donates it to people in need. Thomas was praised for her pioneering spirit and work to preserve farming as an integral part of our landscape and economy, both now and in the future. The Root Connection Farm is currently taking registrations for next season. For more information, visit www.rootconnection. com.

Bartell launches healthy lifestyles program

As they enter retirement age, baby boomers are once again at the center of the attention of marketers and industry. I speak from experience. Hardly a day passes by on which I don’t receive a letter, brochure or magazine in the mail, inviting me to go on a trip to far-flung places, continue my adult education, or join a community of like-minded, active seniors. Aging has never been so much fun and so full of promise, it seems. Take, for example, the movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” which turned out to be one of the longest-running box office hits this year. In it, a group of retirees from England goes off to India (of all places) to start a new life that appears to be easier and more enjoyable than everything they’ve left behind. There is affordable health care, cheap housing, and, surprisingly enough, even

job opportunities open up for those who have the courage to seek them. Some things may be a little chaotic, but that’s all part of the fun when you no longer need to stress over small stuff. Unlike for its forbearers, retirement for this generation — so we are told — is a new beginning rather than a move closer to the end. The defining word now is “adventure,” which, of course, comes from the Latin term for “arrival.” Instead of fading away, this is the time to (finally) come into one’s own. This unprecedented optimism about the prospects of old age is also big business. Just look at the self-help industry that thrives on people’s willingness to change their lives and start over again and again. Instead of the twilight zone, the later stages in life are now called the “Power Years” (to quote one title among countless best-selling books on the subject), a time to break with traditional roles and an opportunity for reinvention and creativity. “Due to longer life spans, economic uncertainty, and the mass rejection of yesterday’s

model of old age, yesterday’s model of retirement is being transformed,” wrote the two lifestyle gurus and bestselling authors of “Power Years” (Wiley, 2005), Ken Dychtwald and Daniel J. Kadlec. “Instead of viewing the years ahead as a time of decline, retreat, and withdrawal, we are coming to see this as a terrific new opportunity to reevaluate our lives, consider new options, and chart new courses. The next chapter in our life’s journey can be one of personal reinvention, financial liberation, career innovation, new relationships, and social and spiritual fulfillment.” The authors suggest that the new retirees should consider themselves as “ageless explorers” who travel the world, start businesses and live life to the fullest at every moment they have left. Americans are especially receptive for messages like these. The idea that our best days are always ahead of us is an important part of our fabric, both individually and as a nation. But is all this actually achievable or just wishful thinking? [ more golden page 17 ]

Exercise improves health at any age. But when unprepared boomers hit tracks, trails and tennis courts, they can harm their bodies. “Weekend warriors and boomers are more susceptible to injury because oftentimes they are not keeping themselves physically prepared,” says Dr. Anne Meyer, whose private practice in West Los Angeles, Calif., focuses on sports rehabilitation. Physical activities can strain ligaments and muscles, and damage joints. Falls and overexertion can injure aging exercisers. But boomers don’t have to exchange outdoor fun

for weekends spent channel surfing. With a few steps, exercisers can stay both active and healthy. According to Meyer, exercising and stretching three times a week can help prepare boomers’ bodies for active weekends. Simple stretching before and after exercise can help prevent injury. Boomers should always include warm-ups and cooldowns in their workout routines. Nutrition also helps the body recover from exercise. Limiting processed foods and consuming more fresh fruits, vegetables and high-quality proteins encourages the body to build healthy new tissues. “Tissues are constantly be-

addition to help decrease inflammation.” If an injury occurs, boomers should rest, apply ice, elevate an injured arm or leg, and consider treating pain with topical agents like Boiron’s odorless Arnicare Gel. Arnicare Gel safely treats muscle aches and stiffness, and relieves swelling and bruising. “I recommend Arnicare Gel to my patients to reduce pain, swelling and bruising when injuries do occur,” says Meyer. She also advises people to seek medical attention if pain persists.

Word of Mouth

RET Physical Therapy Group

by Dr. Adam Cramer


When it comes to “wisdom” teeth (third molars), patients and their parents should discuss their options with the dentist. An examination of a young patient’s mouth by age 16 or 17 should provide the dentist with a good indication of whether there is sufficient room for the teeth to come in properly. If not, and one or more teeth look to be impacted (wedged in), the likely recommendation will be to have the problematic tooth or teeth extracted. The sooner the impacted tooth is removed, the shallower its roots will be and the easier it will be to remove. On the other hand, if wisdom teeth do not affect function or appearance, they may be left in place.

Higher education is important for a society and an economy to grow. The University of Washington’s Bothell campus is doing its part in that circle with steady growth since it opened in 2007. This academic year has been no different as the school’s enrollment grew a robust 12 percent. The campus reports that enrollment stands at 4,172 students for 201213 — including 139 from Redmond and 716 overall from the Eastside — among a count of 3,788 full-time equivalent students (FTE). This number compares to an FTE of 3,377 during 2011-2012. Applications to the university also increased by 13 percent over the previous year. The recent increase in enrollment at UWBothell now makes it the largest of the five university branch campuses in the state. The next closest branch in enrollment increase is Tacoma at just under 7 percent. Ninety-two percent of

the currently-enrolled students at the Bothell campus are from Washington. “Our student demographics reflect the values at UW-Bothell: quality, access and diversity. We are proud to offer students a world-class University of Washington education that is known for inspiring creativity and innovation,” said Hung Dang, associate vice chancellor for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs. But the enrollment growth, although robust in comparison to other colleges in the state, has slowed from year to year. The growth from 2010 to 2011 stayed pretty steady with only a change of 1 percent. But the growth dropped from 17 percent in 2011 to 12 percent this year. A bigger drop of 8 percent was seen between 2009 (26 percent) and 2010 (18 percent).

Penny said that University officials hope to include a food-services facility, as well. “We also hope to expand housing even more, but we do not have any plans yet,” said Penny. With so many students and the rapid expansion, the school is still ahead of transportation issues. “We still have adequate parking and encourage students to use other transportation

The school saw dramatic growth from its first year in 2007 to 2008 of 22 percent. It jumped 4 percent from year two to year three. Campus housing has grown to meet the changes in student demand. UW-Bothell opened Campus View apartments to students this year. Together with the existing Husky Village, the campus currently houses more than 275 students. “The good news is that we have leased an adjacent building that has 30,000 square feet,” said University of Washington Bothell spokesperson Richard Penny. “That will come on board next summer

White Gold

Digging British Columbia’s legendary motherlode.

Here’s how it happens: you sink into a turn and a swirl of crystals envelopes you. A curtain of cold smoke hangs in the air as you link several more explosions before pausing for a well-deserved breath. As the cloud dissipates and sound drifts off like a wind dying in the tree-tops, a weight is lifted from your life. Maybe you don’t feel it right away because the void is filled by what you see: mountains on every horizon— rugged peaks, hanging glaciers, and welcoming bowls hemmed by gentle evergreen skirts. Above you, snow-ghosts picket a ridgeline, alabaster sentinels marching into a cerulean sky. Below you is a vast expanse of unbroken white. Snow of such elemental purity it defies description. In other places it’s called champagne powder, but here, following the mining traditions of the many British Columbia towns it blankets, it’s known as White Gold—because finding it brings a fortune in fun. You’ll know that after your first run. It might be the best skiing you’ve done in a lifetime of great skiing or just a spectacular introduction to wild and free and ridiculously good. And, as you slide back onto an immaculately groomed run to head back to the

lodge, you’ll wonder this: if this is just another winter day in B.C., what’s an exceptional one? Perhaps it’s time you found out. The scope and variety of B.C.’s ski areas is staggering. Whether your choice is located in the spectacular Coast, funky Interior or jagged Rockies, the variability in resort size and ambiance, the amount and diversity of groomed and offpiste terrain, and the consistency of quality snow that ranges from 10-15 metres (30-50 feet) each winter, you’ll know you’ve struck paydirt. Like Europe, B.C.’s vast spaces and convoluted ranges mean you can stay at a world class resort or an undiscovered gem just around the corner. You’ll also find friendly people, modern lifts, lodges ranging from rustic chic to ultramodern, and fabulous, award-winning food. Best of all, getting there is simple. Vancouver & Kelowna international airports act as gateways to B.C.—you can be skiing the same day you leave home. And if the snow happens to break around your knees as you dig into that first turn on your vacation, well, you’ll know. You just struck White Gold. SKI IT TO BELIEVE
