State OKs lower rates for natural gas

Lynne Sanders, manager of Overlake’s expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, says the larger space will let the hospital care for 18 infants at a time and is designed to keep families as close to their children as possible. KEEGAN PROSSER, Bellevue Reporter

Overlake expands care for tiniest of babies New facility will let staff care for babies as young as 26 weeks BY KEEGAN PROSSER Bellevue Reporter

Overlake Medical Center has opened its new, expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) - a project two years in the making. Built by GLY Construction in Bellevue and staffed by specially-trained experts from Seattle Children’s Hospital, the new and expanded unit is located just steps

away from the Overlake Childbirth Center, and will provide nearly 8,000 square feet of infant care. The cost of the expansion of the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) was $3.6 million - $800,000 of which was raised at the Overlake Hospital Auxiliaries annual Bandage Ball in March. The larger, more advanced space will also enable the staff to care for tinier and sicker babies, including those born as early as 26 weeks gestation. Additionally, the new unit features private rooms for all babies, as well as neighboring rooms with sliding doors for families with multiples.

More square footage per room will also allow space for families to spend the night with their infant(s), windows in every room and a central monitoring system. “That makes a big difference to the staff,” said Lynne Sanders, manager of the NICU, “because they can see all the babies at the same time,” The Overlake unit is licensed to accommodate 18 infants. It also features security system locked doors, which will further insure the safety of infants being treated in the unit. SEE BABIES, 17

Almost 2 million natural gas customers in Washington can expect to see lower heating bills this winter due to a decrease in wholesale natural gas costs. The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) today approved requests by the state’s four investor-owned natural gas companies to reduce rates for customers beginning Nov. 1. Natural gas companies in Washington are required to adjust rates periodically to reflect changes in wholesale prices. More than half to about two-thirds of a customer’s monthly bill is attributable to the cost of natural gas on which the company is not allowed to earn a profit. The remaining 45 percent covers the cost of delivering the natural gas. Puget Sound Energy’s average Western Washington residential natural gas customer using 68 therms a month will realize a drop of 7.1 percent, or $5.82, to $76.59. The rates could be subject to further revision. The utilities distribute natural gas to customers but do not produce their own fuel. About half of Washington’s natural gas supplies come from the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia and the other half from Rocky Mountain production sites such as Wyoming. Bellevue-based Puget Sound Energy serves more than 785,000 natural gas customers in parts of Snohomish, King, Pierce, Lewis, Thurston and Kittitas counties.

Investigation of rowdy Bellevue police expected to be completed today BY CELINA KAREIVA Bellevue Reporter

An internal investigation into the behavior by off-duty Bellevue Police officers Sept. 16 in Seattle is expected to be completed today. The investigation, by Bellevue Police Chief Linda Pillo, involves the conduct of three Bellevue officers before and during a Seattle Seahawks football game. The officers berated a Seattle officer when she asked them to discard a cup one member of the group had dropped. That same afternoon, they harassed a fan who asked them to control their language, advising him not to get pulled over in Bellevue. The officers were later kicked out of the CenturyLink Field for their unruly behavior. Pillo formally apologized on behalf of her department. She also promised to discipline the officers based on the results of that investigation.

1st District congressional race seen as up for grabs

520 costs go down, problems go up

BY MATT PHELPS Reporter Newspapers

The 2010 United States Census resulted in a shift of 12 congressional seats across 18 states, including Washington. But the new 1st Congressional District, which includes Medina, Clyde Hill and the Points communities, is one of the most watched races in the country. The race pits Republican John Koster, who is in his third term on the Snohomish County Council from Arlington, against Democrat Suzan DelBene, a former Microsoft executive who lives in Medina. The district stretches from the Canadian border down to Medina and covers 6,600 square miles. To put that into perspective, it is nearly as big as New Jersey at 8,722 square miles and bigger than Delaware, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia combined (4,245 square miles). But it is not the size that has caught the eye of national news media such as the New York Times and political party leaders, such as former Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The New York Times recently called

Trudi Inslee, right, and Sen. Patty Murray, center, campaign for Suzan DelBene in Bothell on Oct. 21. DelBene is running for the vacant 1st Congressional District seat against John Koster. MATT PHELPS, Reporter Newspapers

the district one of the most evenly divided in the nation. The old 1st District fell constantly into the Democrats column. But a SurveyUSA poll for KING 5 News in Seattle released Oct. 23, showed a dead heat with DelBene edging Koster 47-44 percent. But those numbers are within the margin of error. With the race so close, some heavy hitters have visited the state in support of each candidate. DelBene has had national Democratic leaders such as Pelosi, Congressman Steny Hoyer, who has represented Maryland for 30 years and South Carolina Congressman Jim Cyburn on the campaign trail. Koster has had Christie, Georgia Congressman Tom Price, talk radio host and son of President Ronald Reagan,

Michael Reagan, along with Congressman Dave Reichert campaigning for him. “It really is one of the most evenly divided in the nation and that is great,” said DelBene. “We need more districts like this one.” The campaign rally for DelBene also included the wife of former 1st Congressional District Rep. Jay Inslee, who vacated the seat to run for Governor. Inslee won re-election in 2010 with 57 percent of the vote against challenger James Watkins. Because Inslee vacated the seat, 1st District voters will get to vote for DelBene or Koster twice during the general election on Nov. 6. The first is to fill the final few months of Inslee’s term and the second is to fill the seat for the next congressional term.

Whole Lot of ZOOM at Omega

Constructing the full State Route 520 corridor from Interstate 5 to Redmond, including a new floating bridge and six-lane highway, is estimated to cost $522 million less than the 2009 legislative budget cap, the Washington State Department of Transportation said. WSDOT finalized documents for a $300 million federal loan that will fund design and construction of the next portion of the SR 520 project – a westbound bridge between the west-end landing of the new floating bridge and Montlake. At the same time, Transportation Secretary Paula Hammond ordered a review to fully understand the cause of concrete spalling and more-than-expected cracking in new pontoons. Issues that occurred during the first cycle will likely lead to additional, yet-to-be-determined costs for repairs and schedule delays under discussion between the state and its pontoon and bridge-replacement contractors. Negotiations will take place over the next few months.

Two Eastside legislators honored Sens. Rodney Tom and Steve Litzow have been honored for their work on charter schools by the Washington Policy Center with with the Champion of Freedom Award. Tom, a Bellevue Democrat, and Litzow, a Mercer Island Republican, were recognized by the WPC during the center’s annual dinner at the Bellevue Hyatt Regency on Oct. 15 attended by over 1,600 guests. Other past winners include Phil Smart, Bruce McCaw, Charles Pigott, and former Congresswoman Jennifer Dunn. “This is a great honor for me to be included with such a distinguished list of award winners,” said Tom. “For me charter schools are about giving every student a chance to achieve academic success.

Microsoft’s new and tasty menu


he Redmond software giant might not be sleeping any more. Over the past week or so Microsoft has released a number of hardware and software innovations that have received – on average – favorable reviews in the technical and popular press. Our neighbors who work for the company must be feeling exhausted from all the work needed to make this happen. We hope they also are feeling euphoric. From a new operating system that ties together a number of tech devices to several of those devices themselves, the company, whose software runs on most of the world’s computers, is showing that it can innovate with the best of them. That’s good news for Microsoft – and for the rest of us, too. It’s no secret that Microsoft, along with Boeing and its aircraft production lines, is a major economic driver for this region. The thousands of its well-paid employees pump millions of dollars into the local economy, which, in turn, go on to fill the pockets of thousands more people. As with everything hardware and software, no one really knows who will be adopting what of Microsoft’s new offerings. But it’s pretty obvious that what’s on the company’s plate is pretty enticing. It very well could be the taste of the future.



he Reporter has made recommendations on four statewide issues on the Nov. 6 ballot.

Votes that connect, rebuild BY WILLIAM SHAW


had the opportunity to moderate a candidate debate recently. While the candidates came from different backgrounds and certainly held different perspectives on many issues, there is common thread that unites them all — the desire to serve their community and to make it a better place. Moderating that debate and pondering the overall dynamics of this upcoming election, I was reminded of my trip to our nation’s capital two years ago this week. At one point on my sojourn, my nose was mere inches away from the most important document in America: The Constitution. In 1787, our founders permanently expressed in ink and sheepskin what had slowly formed in their hearts, minds and action during the 11 very challenging years before. This four-page document was the legal blueprint and defining principle of our William Shaw nation — a radical ethos that started with just three very simple words. It wasn’t ‘We the Republicans’ or ‘We the Democrats.’ It wasn’t ‘We the Tea-Party’ or ‘We the Super-PACS’ and especially not ‘We the Millionaires (or their Corporations). It was ‘We the People’. Well, in two weeks, ‘We the People’ have an opportunity to boldly affirm our nation and our state’s direction. Or, to change it. But it all begins with you, and with your vote. But before you start filling in the circles on the ballot, please set aside some quality time and truly educate yourself on the people running for national and state office. Not to mention the state initiatives and judicial candidates as well. The state of Washington Voter’s Pamphlet is probably still sitting on your dining room table or in your in-box. Do yourself and your community a favor: Splash some cold water on your face, get a cup of coffee or tea, pick up a highlighter and don’t just idly leaf through the voter’s pamphlet—study it. And ask yourself: Who are the candidates? Why are they

really running? Is out of a selfless willingness to truly serve the needs of their community or state? Or just another ideologue from their party’s ‘Central Casting Dept.’ — appointed to carry the elephant or donkey banner? Take a few moments to check out the candidates’ Web sites and Facebook pages and see what they are for and what they will do and who they will work with — not just what or who they are against. Take some time to also explore the pros and cons of our state initiatives. Who do they help and why? Ask yourself: Does this add a positive element to our state? What is the motivation in the initiative? Better government? Sound fiscal policy? Enhanced life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Or, mere politics? Note the small print, both the folks who wrote for and against the initiative. That says a lot. When the dust settles on Nov. 6, there will be much to do to continue to rebuild the integrity of our country and our state’s divided political system. Regardless of whose name or preferred party ends up in the win column, once again, I urge our new or renewed representatives to remember that they were sent to Olympia and Washington, D.C., to do the people’s business. Our business. That can only be done by doing two simple things: 1: Be brave enough to set aside the politics of divisiveness. Reach across to the aisle to your political opposites and take up the challenge of forging common ground and a mutual purpose to get things done. True politics is the art of consensus building. Pragmatic compromise to achieve action does not mean defeat. 2: Do what is right for our nation, our state and our community, and not just for your party’s agenda. Voting in a free election is not only our right, it is our duty as citizens of this great land. Do yourself, your community, and those that fought for your freedom to vote the honor of voting wisely.

The 48th Legislative District race between Cyrus Habib and Hank Myers

By Jane Hague

The choice for a new legislator is clear when one considers the most pressing issues facing the 48th Legislative District. Hank Myers’ 40 years of experience as a small business owner and consultant on transportation, transit, commute trip reduction and 520 bus service makes him a respected expert on one of the key challenges to economic prosperity for our Eastside communities. It was my pleasure to appoint Hank to three Metro Transit citizen sounding boards where he served with distinction and emerged as a leader and spokesperson for their work to increase service on 520 and shape the Sound Transit bus service that serves so many of our daily commuters. As a transportation economist with a reputation for problem solving, Hank earned kudos for his work managing the Microsoft Commute Trip Reduction program for four years,

during which that program won awards for excellence – including the Commuter Challenge Diamond Award. I will be proud to say that my 48th District representative is Hank Myers. He is a candidate who shares my passion for a healthy, expanding economy with the infrastructure needed to support that growth. His two terms on the Redmond City Council establish his experience in government and public service, and his volunteer efforts include the Together Center and Bellevue School District committees, as well as Green Redmond. Experience, commitment and compassion – qualities for a great 48th District representative. Jane Hague is a member of the King County Council and represents Bellevue.

Habib can ‘govern from the middle’ By Kevin Wallace

Some in the community have found it curious that a Republican like myself would be one of Cyrus Habib’s earliest supporters. I came to know Cyrus through our service together in Bellevue on the Human Services Commission – he as a commissioner and I as the council liaison – and both of us have been involved with Eastside Pathways, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping each child achieve their potential. From that interaction I have

seen his ability to quickly grasp complex problems and come up with innovative and pragmatic solutions. The only indicator of the fact that Cyrus has been blind since age eight are his trademark sunglasses. He moves past his disability with a grace and intellect that has allowed him to achieve great things despite overwhelming odds. He is inspirational, and his life experience gives him an important perspective that will be unique in the Legislature.

Healthy, Tasty Vegan Cuisine

anced, common ground consensus – to “govern from the middle.” The Eastside is fortunate to have leaders like Steve Litzow (R), Deb Eddy (D), Rob McKenna (R) and Rodney Tom (D), who have been willing and able to govern from the middle, and I believe Cyrus will do so as well. Kevin Wallace is a member of the Bellevue City Council.

Word of Mouth by Dr. Adam Cramer


Before the invention of toothpaste in its modern form, the ancients formulated their own versions from ingredients such as crushed eggshells and powdered pumice. It was not until the 1890s that Colgate introduced the first tube of toothpaste. By the 1950s, enamel-strengthening fluoride was added to toothpaste as an effective decay-preventive element. Today, whitening toothpastes are slightly more abrasive than regular toothpastes, which, along with ingredients like peroxide, help them more effectively remove stains. In any case, the primary purpose behind tooth-brushing is to remove plaque, which coats teeth on a daily basis. Unless this pale yellow biofilm is removed, it will continue to build up and harden, and acid produced by the colonized bacteria will attack tooth enamel. Did you know that the wavy layer of toothpaste that sits atop toothbrush bristles is known as a “nurdle?” It makes good sense to start preventive measures against dental disease as soon as possible. When was the last time you had a complete dental exam? At NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, we make a thorough evaluation of existing and potential problems.

PSE customers line up to ‘Rock the Bulb’ BY LINDA BALL Reporter Newspapers

Despite cold, steady rainfall, people waited in long lines outside the Bellevue Fred Meyer to participate in Puget Sound Energy’s “Rock the Bulb” event Saturday, Oct. 27. Not only could they exchange their incandescent light bulbs for more energy efficient bulbs, but also they could learn about various ways to reduce energy consumption. Customers of PSE could swap 15 old bulbs for 15 compact fluorescent bulbs, the “spirally ones,” or 10 CFL’s and five LED bulbs. Will Einstein, PSE’s director of community services, said LED bulbs are the newest technology and last much longer. However, he added, they are expensive.

But consider this. A regular incandescent light bulb that uses 60 watts is comparable to 13 watts in a CFL and seven to 12 watts in an LED bulb. While the sound of the old bulbs crashing into the recycle pile was a bit unnerving, the good news is they will be recycled by Ecolights of Seattle. The glass is crushed and used in pavement. It was quite the process. First, folks registered by giving a PSE representative their address and account number. The information is put into the system so PSE can track the customer’s savings by using the energy efficient bulbs. Everyone then had a chance to win a free energy efficient shower head. Several contractors were on hand to talk about their energy efficient products.

Habitat for Humanity affiliates OK merger Seattle/South King County joins forces with East King County

A PSE representative explains how the “Rock the Bulb” program works at Saturday’s Bellevue event. LINDA BALL, Reporter Newspapers Greg Smith, was busy explaining PSE’s Re-energized by Design contest. Customers were encouraged to create a video explaining why they deserve an energy home makeover. The people with the top six videos will compete for $7,500 worth of energy efficient appliances and work with an interior designer to be sure they achieve the look they want.

“I just came to get bulbs,” said Bob Jacobs, a 27-year Bellevue resident. Jacobs didn’t want to make a video, but he said information on heat pumps and home energy assessments was worthwhile. Jackie Moe of “Green Power,” which contracts with PSE, compared the program with shopping at the local farmer’s market. She was signing up customers to volunteer to buy Green Power credits, which shifts a portion of their electricity use to support wind power, solar power and other new renewable energy options.

Habitat for Humanity affiliates East King County and Seattle/South King County will merge into a single affiliate serving all of King County. The change was approved during a joint meeting of the two boards Oct. 29. The new affiliate will be known as Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County. The non-profit organization will continue to focus on building and renovating homes to provide affordable housing opportunities for low-income, working families. The merged affiliate will be led by new chief executive officer Kirk Utzinger, who was hired with full board approval on Sept. 17. Over the next three months, Utzinger and the new board of directors will continue all work underway and develop a plan to guide the effort of the new affiliate moving forward. The strategic vision for the combined affiliate will be unveiled at the annual breakfast on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. “Many families in King County are facing enormous challenges to find safe, affordable places to live,” said Utzinger. “The housing problems we face can only be solved through bold action and greater cooperation.” Habitat for Humanity of Seattle was founded in 1986 and merged with the South King County affiliate in 2003. The East King County affiliate was founded in 1988. Together, the combined affiliates have partnered with hundreds of organizations in 17 different cities within King County, building over 300 homes for families in need of affordable housing.

Microsoft’s Surface draws hundreds to Bel-Square for the Windows 8 operating system. The Oct. 26 release is part of a much anticipated new generation of products meant to revolutionize the PC experience, explained Chad Mack, a spokesperson for the flagship store. After computer sales slowed in the last decade, the tablet will have to compete with the customer base and thousands of apps associated with Apple products, Microsoft’s main competitor. “This is the next step forward for computing,” said Mack. “It’s a fresh spin on something that I think has been long overdue.” The company is advertising the product as a combination of work, personal life and play, with particular emphasis placed on its usability. Both children and grandparents could be seen playing with the device at demo stations across the mall. “I’ll definitely give it a chance,” said Jani, who expects to use his Surface largely for work. “The only thing I’m worried about is apps. They have to catch up with the apps market.”

Slutzky, who lives in Redmond and visited Microsoft’s flagship store at Bellevue Square on Friday, Oct. 26 for the product release, the tablet’s small, compact screen makes it easy to showcase her work while on the move. She was one of hundreds of customers and window shoppers who lined up that morning at the store for its release alongside Windows 8. A handful camped out overnight to guarantee their purchase of the much buzzed about device, which features a touchscreen, kickstand and removable keypad. Many more were drawn to the promotional giveaways and DJ booth spread throughout Bellevue Square. The Surface is the first computer made and sold by the company. “Everything I can do on my normal laptop, I can do on this,” said Janmesh Jani, 30, a consultant for T-Mobile, as he toggled between screens at a demo station. “It can be my work and it can be my entertainment.” Jani, who had come with his wife to purchase an Xbox, said he was a loyal user of Apple products, but was eager to try the tablet

Sleep Store moves to new location The Sleep Store, a family-owned and operated mattress and bedding store in Bellevue since 2006, has moved to its new location at 10623 NE Eighth St. The store specializes in mattresses and bedding, including adjustable beds and organic chemically free merchandise. The move came quickly for the company when another firm wanted its space. While it found a new location, the store’s move came faster than the ability of a sign company to move its sign. The sign is expected to catch up in mid-November. The Sleep Store’s new location is smaller that at its previous location, resulting in a floor-model liquidation sale which will continue until all the excess floor models are gone.

Overlake Village Shopping Center sells for $18.2 million BY KAITLIN GROVES Bellevue Reporter

Panos Properties, LLC, based in Seattle, has purchased the Overlake Village Shopping Center for $18.2 million. The 112,680 square foot retail shopping center was 100 percent leased at the close of the sale, according to Colliers International, which brokered the deal for both the buyer and seller. Safeway is the anchor tenant, and other stores that lease space include Big 5 Sporting Goods, Starbucks and RiteAid. The shopping center sits on 8.8 acres at 14810 N.E. 24th St., a heavy traffic area in the 1-405 Eastside Corridor. Reynolds Haas the senior vice president of Colliers International, who brokered the sale, originally leased the shopping center when it was first constructed in 1976. “I was just new in the real estate business back then (in 1976)-just starting after my military career,” Haas said. “(The same owners) have had it the whole time. This is the first transition of that property since it was built. I’ve known both (the buyers and sellers) for a very very long period of time and have done transactions with them over my career.”

MulvannyG2 golf tourney raises $100,000 for Komen MulvannyG2 Architecture raised $100,000 at its 10th annual “Swing for the Cure” golf tournament this year, which benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Puget Sound. Since 2003, the company has raised $930,000 for the organization. The tournament, hosted at Inglewood Golf Club in Kenmore on July 29 and 30, featuring some of the greatest women golfers of all time, brought in nearly 1,000 spectators and featured renowned LPGA Hall of Famers Patty Sheehan and JoAnne Carner, and former LPGA stars Rosie Jones, Liselotte Neumann, and Nancy Lopez, among others.

“Not only is Susan G. Komen such a great charity — everybody wants to do something to give back a little bit,” said Carner, who now lives in Palm Beach, FL. “And, of course, being from this area and having played Inglewood a lot, it’s fun to be back here.” More than 200 of MulvannyG2’s retail and commercial clients, industry consultants, and friends attended the “Swing for the Cure” Pro-Am golf tournament on July 30. All money raised through sponsorships, contests, and a silent and live auction went to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Puget Sound for breast cancer awareness, treatment, and research.

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

When Susan Gjolmesli was a high school and college student, the Americans with Disabilities Act was still decades away. As she studied for a career as a teacher and simultaneously dealt with increasing blindness due to a genetic condition that sapped her vision, Gjolmesli was constantly underestimated and even discriminated against because of her condition. “People didn’t think I would make it in education,” she said. “Because of my blindness.” After beginning her career in disability services at the Department of Services for the Blind, Gjolmesli took an unconventional detour to a horticulture school in Colorado, where she again found an instructor uneducated on the functionality of people with disabilities and a system

unwilling to integrate technology to assist them. Those experiences, and her own history with adaptive technology, led her to seek out an employer that not only was dedicated to assisting individuals with disabilities, but also integrating services to existing infrastructure that would allow them to thrive. She found that at Bellevue College. For nearly 18 years, Gjolmesli has served as the Director of the college’s Disability Resource Center (DRC), which serves some 900 Bellevue College students. Unlike previous stops in her life where she was doubted because of her blindness, Gjolmesli found the environment at BC to be encouraging. That idea is underlined by the integrated system she uses to send and receive email and set appointments, which reads to her as she sits at her computer. All Bellevue College computers run the program, which interfaces to

disability studies, said it is rewarding to show how the technology can open a new world of possibilities and offer a new perspective on what disability looks like. “Seeing kids who are four and five years old get excited because they can do something, and watching their parents see their children can participate is great,” Seidel said. Seidel showcased a range of technologies from a battery-powered waterlevel sensor that vibrates when the water is at the desired amount in a beaker to plastic models of the life cycle of a butterfly, which are ideal for both blind students as well as those who have difficulty conceptualizing material in traditionally taught methods. BC is only the second institution of higher learning in the state to install the loop and Gjolmesli said it is yet another sign of the college’s dedication to its disabled population and the community at-large.

Game Day: Seahawks host Vikings The Seahawks will return home in unfamiliar territory after dropping consecutive games for the first time in 2012 with a 28-24 loss to Detroit in the waning seconds. Quarterback Russell Wilson put on another strong performance to lead the offense with 236 yards through the air and a pair of scores, but it was the Lions passing game that had the final say as Matt Stafford fired a late score to Titus Young from a yard away to secure the final margin. Despite the 28 points surrendered to the Lions, Seattle still ranks sixth in the NFL in scoring

defense at just under 17 points per game. The Vikings, by contrast, are allowing nearly 21 points per contest. Jared Allen is tied for seventh in the league with seven sacks, the same number as Seattle pass rusher Chris Clemons. Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder, a second-year man from Florida State, is completing 65.3 percent of his passes for the season and has thrown ten touchdowns against seven interceptions. Ponder’s main target has been Percy Harvin, who has 60 catches for 667 yards and three scores on

the year. No receiver has more catches than Harvin, who is averaging 11.1 yards per reception. Tight end Kyle Rudolph has also been a threat in the passing game for Minnesota and has hauled in five touchdowns for the year. After facing Jason Witten of the Cowboys, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez of the Patriots and Jermichael Finley from Green Bay, the Seahawks have plenty of practice limiting the impact of pass catching tight ends. But he will likely spend much of the afternoon handing the ball off to dynamic running back Adrian Peterson, who has rehabbed from a knee injury to lead the NFL in yards (775), yards per carry (5.1) and yards per game (96.9). Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is second in each of those

Head coach Pete Carroll said in his weekly press conference that third down defense was the deciding factor in the game against the Lions, but added that the Seahawks were able to do some positive things that they should be able to build on going forward. “We had as many close games as anybody and we had a chance to win them all,” he said. “We will try and take those experiences and try to execute better.”

free, and the Knights had several swimmers make the state meet. Gwo, who finished fourth at the 2011 state meet in the 50 free, sixth in the 100 fly and also swam on a pair of state qualifying relay teams for the Knights, said the history of the program is a great source of motivation, especially since eight of the ten school records on file were set before 1997. Without Skyline standout Katie Kinnear, now at UCLA, leaving the rest of the conference and state in her wake, Newport went undefeated this year, including a top finish in a meet that pitted all 3A and 4A KingCo schools for the first time ever. Head coach Eric Bartleson said the experience of returners Maggie Pana, Gwo and a handful of others, combined with an unusually fast and determined freshmen class, has given his team a unique mix they have taken advantage of thus far. “It’s a strong group,” Bartleson said. “We’ve had a lot of girls step up.” The Knights will have a chance to put their depth and speed on display November 2 and 3 at the district swim and dive meet. Bartleson and Strathy both said they are excited to see not only how fast the Knights are able to get out with state spots on the line, but the continued emphasis on forging their own legacy in a program rife with historical achievements. “She was part of state championship teams and has some really good enthusiasm about Newport and swimming for Newport,” he said. “She can be a big boost for the girls.”

Lorea Gwo (right) and Liz Strathy have developed a bond in the pool, where Gwo broke her 29-year-old school record in the 50 free, and out of it, where Gwo and Strathy’s daughter are best friends. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter

Liz Strathy had to see it for herself. A record-setting swimmer and four-time state champion during her time at Newport, Strathy heard from her daughter Sarah that a teammate, Lorea Gwo, was threatening her nearly three-decade old

school record in the 50 meter freestyle. Strathy went to the meet without expectations of becoming involved in the program beyond being a parent and spectator. But after watching the meet and speaking with some other parents in the program, Strathy couldn’t stay away. “I saw her swim in a relay, and she was swimming

A trio of Interlake juniors landed on the 2A/3A AllKingCo first team in girls soccer, as last year’s league MVP Emma Bergstrom was joined by Jaimee Farrell and Courtney Fedor. Bergstrom was one of only three forwards named to the first team while Farrell made it as a midfielder and Fedor got the nod on defense. Joanna Heywood, a senior from Sammamish, was the lone selection for the Totems to the first team, also as a defender. Goalkeeper Catie Getzendaner, who was part of the group that held opponents scoreless through the 2011 postseason, and fellow junior Sarah Williams, a defender, garnered second team honors along with sophomore Corrine Foster of Bellevue.

Area transportation projects get OK

Eastside Story

What’s happening in nearby cities Snoqualmie Valley residents will be looking at bus service this month as part of the county’s newly adopted Transit Alternative Services Plan. The meetings, which will include an opportunity to talk one-on-one with Metro staff, will help shape future transportation services in the valley. The Metro plan will establish a framework for how fixed-route bus service – along with potential alternatives to this costly service - might look like in less populated areas of the county as Metro looks for ways to get the most out of every available transit dollar. Redmond is giving its residents a peak into its police department through a new Citizens’ Police Academy. Ten 10 weekly classes include department history and ethics, records and evidence, and the department’s traffic, SWAT and K-9 units. The academy began in the 1990s and ran for about a decade and a half before the department put it aside when it was not able to dedicate as much time to it as it deserved. The new academy has about about 20 students including neighborhood watch leaders, a City Council member, prospective police department employee and representative from the Lake Washington School District. A long-time Kirkland arts patron who pleaded guilty to tax evasion was sentenced to 13 months in. William G. Ballantine, 63, attempted to evade paying more than $110,000 in income tax on funds he received through his charitable foundation by laundering payments through a Colorado church, according to court documents. Ballantine was known as kind and generous and just days before his sentencing he, his wife and the National Philanthropic Trust made the larges-single donation to the Kirkland Arts Center in its history -- $125,000.

Garage fire causes $100,000 damage Bellevue fire investigators were unable to determine what started a fire Wednesday afternoon in Bellevue’s Tam O’Shanter neighborhood. No injuries were reported. At 11:36 a.m., on Wednesday, Oct. 31, residents called 9-1-1 to report black smoke coming from their garage in the 17000 block of Northeast 13th Street. Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke and flames coming from the garage of the two-story home. It took firefighters 24 minutes to control the fire. The home was equipped with working smoke detectors. The home is insured and the occupants, a family of three, are staying with neighbors. Fire damage was confined to the garage with moderate smoke damage throughout the

Transportation projects totaling more than $34 million in Bellevue will move forward following action Oct. 25 by the Puget Sound Regional Council’s Executive Board to approve the 2013-2016 Regional Transportation Improvement Program.

Planning for the new unit began in January 2010 when a leak appeared in the old space and staff had to move to the other side of the hallway. Five current staff members were part of the team that helped develop the plans to relocate the NICU to the space previously occupied by the Critical Care Unit. The new neonatal unit is just one part of Overlake’s comprehensive service line for babies and their parents. Care begins with classes for couples who are thinking of having a baby, and follows them through pregnancy to delivery and beyond.

A garage fire Wednesday afternoon is the third fire in the Tam O’Shanter neighborhood since August. COURTESY PHOTO, Bellevue Fire Department home causing an estimated $100,000 in damage. Although this was the third fire since August in the Tam O’Shanter neighborhood, foul play is not suspected in any of the blazes. Following birth, the Women’s Clinic offers postpartum care, including breastfeeding support. Overlake’s neonatal staff consists of 39 RNs and four secretaries working eight- to 12-hour shifts. Saunders says she’s most excited to see the looks on the faces of the staff when they see the new unit. “I’ve seen the entire team rally and be in support of this new unit,” Sanders said. “[They’re] scared of the change, but can hardly wait for the move.” Along with parents, the staff will begin to move infants into the new space on Nov. 12 after morning rounds. The current neonatal unit is home to 10 infants. Sanders expects at least four of these patients will be transferred to the new unit next week.

ACT hires acclaimed director John Langs A Contemporary Theatre’s leadership, Executive Director Carlo Scandiuzzi and Artistic Director Kurt Beattie, have created a new position and hired critically acclaimed director John Langs as ACT’s new Associate Artistic Director. Langs has garnered a reputation as a determined and innovative freelance artist, who since 2004 has established an ongoing relationship with Seattle’s theatre community. He recently directed “The Dumb Waiter” and “Celebration” for ACT’s Pinter Festival and will direct this holiday season’s annual production of “Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol,” adapted by Gregory Falls. In January 2013, he will begin his full-time staff post and also direct Chekhov’s “The Seagull” for ACT’s Central Heating Lab, followed by the mainstage offering of Will Eno’s “Middletown” in the fall. Langs’ production of “Antony and Cleopatra” with Seattle Shakespeare Company opens this Friday. As Associate Artistic Director, Langs will support Beattie in the planning and execution of ACT’s artistic mission by directing one mainstage show a year; directing workshops of new plays and assisting in development; curating Central Heating Lab projects; managing projects in development through ACT’s Affiliate Artist Working Group; providing support for the education department, including teaching and classroom participation; and serving as an ambassador for ACT. Beattie and Langs first connected in 2004, when Langs directed Beattie in the title role of the Seattle Shakespeare Company’s production of “King Lear.” “[Langs’] passion and drive for theatre is undeniable and contagious,” Beattie said. “Something I’m looking forward to is that John and I are very different in our approach to communicating through theatre. I think that by combining our strengths and learning from each other, we’ll be in a strong place to move ACT forward artistically.” In his new position, Langs will be encouraged to continue working with outside organizations. “This is a great opportunity for me to come to Seattle to be a part of this thriving, cultural city. I’m honored to be working for ACT and to be the right hand for one of my

Langs has received critical acclaim for his recent productions of “The Adding Machine” with New Century Theatre (Gregory Award Winner for Excellence in Direction) and his unique and inspired direction of Seattle Shakespeare Company’s productions of “Hamlet” and “King Lear.” A graduate of University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Langs has directed all over the United States with some notable productions including “The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World” (Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award, and nominated for New York’s Lucille Lortel Awards for excellence off Broadway), “The Brothers Karamazov” (seven LADCC Awards including Best Direction) and “Battle Hymn” with Circle x Theatre (nominated for 7 LA Weekly awards including “Best production”). He especially enjoys fostering new works from workshop to main stage and has had great success working with local playwrights. Langs also recently directed the musical “Bad Apples,” currently running at the Atwater Village Theatre in L.A.
