Snowflake Lane to show new features The nightly holiday celebration, Snowflake Lane at The Bellevue Collection will be even brighter this year. The event, starting today at 7 p.m. and continuing through Dec. 24 at Bellevue Way and Northeast Eighth Street, will include a new dance stage and a “meet and greet” with the most popular characters, the snow princesses. Jingle Belles Stage, between The Westin Bellevue and Bellevue Arts Museum in the pedestrian walkway area, features nightly performances by the Jingle Belles dance troupe with a traditional salute to the holidays. Little Princess Court, located just off Bellevue Way between Cheesecake Factory and Blue C Sushi, is designed for little princesses to have their picture taken with three new Snowflake Lane Princesses, and their elves. The space was created to keep little children ones out of the crowd and give them a special place just for them. Back by popular demand are the Snowstorm Stages. Two performing groups of space-age, high tech drummers

known as The Snowstorm will drum out the holiday hits on recycled percussion. The new stages are in front Bellevue Place on the corner of NE Eighth Street and Bellevue Way and along and in the Fountain Court of Bellevue Square along Bellevue Way. The 20-minute show, which is free to the public, features colorful lights and snow, plus live drummers, music and holiday characters all along Bellevue Way and NE Snowmen and princesses Eighth Street outside Bellevue are on hand to entertain Square, Lincoln Square and Belpeople at Snowflake Lane. levue Place. It features live toy COURTESY PHOTO soldiers, music, glittering lights and a snowfall The celebration continues after Christmas until New Year’s Eve with Celebration Lane, a nightly glittery salute to ring in the New Year. Performances are at 7 p.m.

Magic Season: Snow, skating, cocoa – and lots of lights Bellevue Magic Season kicks off today. 23 for seven weeks of outdoor ice skating, lighted displays and snowy performances in and around downtown Bellevue. Once again skating will be available at the region’s largest covered, open-air ice rink. Also, people will be able to experience the drummers’ beat at Snowflake Lane at The Bellevue Collection. And 500,000 lights will form displays at the Bellevue Botanical Garden’s Garden d’Lights.

Other activities include a holiday performance at The Theatre at Meydenbauer Center, sipping hot cocoa by the fireplace at The Shops at The Bravern and taking in the winter scenes on display at KidsQuest Children’s Museum’s Gingerbread Lane. Bellevue Magic Season is a partnership between the Bellevue Downtown Association, the City of Bellevue, The Bellevue Collection, The Theatre at Meydenbauer Center and Bellevue Botanical Garden.

The Bellevue City Council signaled its intention to stick with a no-new-taxes plan as it moves toward finalizing the 2013-2019 capital budget. But in the new year, councilmembers want to take an in-depth look at prioritizing much-needed capital investments and how to pay for them. Councilmembers had requested more information on a “4-1-4” property tax proposal to help fund a backlog of projects, mostly road improvements. Four percent increases in 2013 and 2015 would have funded projects, and a 1 percent increase in 2014 would have covered maintenance and operating costs. However on Nov. 13, the council opted to defer discussion about revenue options and capital projects until next year and instead move forward with the city manager’s recommended seven-year capital budget. “Given the economic prospects, including the fiscal cliff and continuing federal deficit, I believe this is the right course of action,” said Mayor Conrad Lee. “At the same time I’m open to beginning the process of looking at what good and wise investments we should be making.” Lee suggested a community visioning process early next year to get the public involved in project prioritization, timing and revenue options to address the unmet capital needs. The dialogue on Nov. 13 was part of a broader process as the council works to finalize the 2013-2014 operating budget, in addition to the capital budget. The operating budget, described as a “status quo” spending plan, includes no general tax increases, assumes slow economic growth, maintains reserves, adds some new economic development programs, and adjusts utility and permit rates to cover higher costs. The council will further discuss the budget during the Nov. 26 council meeting. The council is slated to adopt the budget at its Dec. 3 meeting.

Bellevue may bump up utility fees The Bellevue utilities department is looking at raising water, sewer and storm rates in 2013 and 2014. Much of the increase next year is a required pass-through of the cost of water sold to the city by Cascade Water Alliance and wastewater treatment by King County. The rate increases would also fund infrastructure maintenance and key capital projects. If the council approves the rate increases, the typical single-family residential customer would see their total monthly bill increase by 10.1 percent in 2013, from $123.52 to $135.97. In 2014, their monthly bill would rise another 5.9 percent, $8.06, to $144.03.

Habib draws on life experience to serve 48th district BY CELINA KAREIVA BELLEVUE REPORTER

Rep. Cyrus Habib of the 48th District, lost his eyesight to cancer at age eight. He’s never let it keep him from success. This November, Habib becomes the first Iranian American elected to the Legislature. When Habib was in the third grade, he can remember the teachers scolding him for trying to climb the jungle gym at school. One night he told his mom about the incident. Habib’s mom was a lawyer and understood the risks, but was upset her son couldn’t participate in certain playground activities. The next day, she promised to sign any waivers or liability forms allowing her son to play alongside the other kids. “I can deal with a broken arm,” she told his teachers. “I can’t deal with a broken spirit.” The first-time politician, a Democrat, defeated Redmond City Council member Hank Myers, a Republican, and will represent parts of Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Medina, Clyde Hill and the Points communities. Habib is a lawyer, but has always been involved with service work. He volunteers as a trustee of the Bellevue College Foundation and is a human services commissioner for the city of Bellevue. Though he studied literature at Oxford and law at Yale, Habib had his hand in politics from a young age. He worked as an intern for U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell and later interned under U.S. Sen. Hilary Clinton. “What an accessible political climate we have here,” said Habib of entering politics in Washington state. “There’s a real receptiveness to new ideas and new people. I felt like I could come here, and early on, be effective.” Habib battled cancer three times in his life. He finds it

Cyrus Habib, who will represent the 48th Legislative District in Olympia beginning in January, credits the Bellevue School District for paving the way to his success. COURTESY PHOTO important to share his disability and life story with constituents, but doesn’t want it to overshadow his qualifications, or reasons for representing the 48th District. “That’s not how I’m running and that’s not how I want to be thought of,” he said. “But I do think it’s important to tell my life story…As voters and constituents it’s helpful to understand my biography because it shows what’s important to me.” A graduate of the Bellevue public schools, he finds education funding to be one of the most critical issues facing the state this budgetary cycle. Doorbelling during his campaign reinforced that need. “When I talked about the affordability of college and

education, it really resonated with people. I think a lot of people sense and feel that public universities are not delivering the promise of an affordable education for middleclass Americans. [Talking to my constituents] really solidified my desire to fight for education funding.” Habib now uses adaptive software that reads what is on his computer screen. It allows him to respond to emails from constituents. But his own experience at the Bellevue International School, he believes, paved the way for much of his success. When the school couldn’t accommodate him in math and science classes because of his disability, Bellevue College opened its doors to him, and gave him his first taste of higher education. “What all those institutions are, is a reflection of our values,” says Habib. “They were built and funded by taxpayers and their elected officials who believed that hard work, plus opportunity, can equal success. These were the opportunities created for me.” Campaigning for the 48th District has left him exhilarated, he says. Even today, he finds landmarks from his early years — the Barnes and Noble where he studied for his SAT, and a Kirkland shopping center where he hadn’t been since he was a teenager. “This was always home for me,” says Habib of returning to serve the 48th District. “Bellevue was really the ecosystem in which I overcame some very difficult obstacles, to go on and achieve great things today. I always saw myself coming back to this place.” Celina Kareiva 425-453-4290

Hunter: Legislature faces tough task on budget Rep. Ross Hunter had an easy race for reelection to the 48th District. That may be the last easy thing he sees when the Legislature returns in January. The head of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, Hunter will face two big problems: balancing a state budget with revenue expected to be less than needed to maintain current programs and finding at least $1 billion in the next biennium, to meet a judge’s ruling to adequately pay for education. The McCleary decision determined that the state was not meeting its constitutional obligation to pay for basic education. “I might be able to do the base budget without raising revenues,” Hunter said. “…But there’s no way you

can find the money for the McCleary decision [for school education] in that budget. It’s just not doable. At least, I don’t see a solution.” The state also faces Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act with 400,000 more people expected to Ross Hunter qualify for coverage. Complicating everything is voter approval this month of I-1185, an initiative pushed through by Tim Eyman, that requires a two-thirds vote in the Legislature to raise taxes. Legislative observers don’t think that’s possible. Hunter also noted that exterior factors add to the uncertainty – Europe’s debt crisis and the U.S. fiscal cliff could pose a risk to state budgets as well. Almost half of Washington’s current operating budget is dependent on federal revenues that go toward a wide-range of programs. Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government initially would pay the full cost of expansion. But that share would drop to 90 percent by 2020. Hunter

Patty Shelton, social studies curriculum developer for the Bellevue School District, was honored as 2012 Educator of the Year by the Museum of History and Industry. Shelton, who’s worked with MOHAI for more than five years, has helped MOHAI plan exhibits for the new museum, developed education initiatives, and hosted statewide teacher trainings. The award honors an individual in Washington state who demonstrates dedication, innovation and excellence in the areas of history, geography and civics education.

Better prices than retirement sales

says he expects Medicaid expansion to save the state some money, but doesn’t know how much it would be. Gubernatorial candidates Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna presented different responses to McCleary during election season. Hunter also put forward his own plan, a local levy swap adopted by McKenna on the campaign trail. “I haven’t seen a proposal from either candidate yet that really adds up to significant savings and we’re going to continue to try and do that,” Hunter said. Under the most recent forecast, spending is expected to increase from $31.1 billion in the current biennium to $33.8 billion in 2013-2015. Nevertheless, that leaves the state about $900 million short for the next cycle, a number that doesn’t include the additional spending required under the McCleary ruling. “These are critical decisions the governor and Legislature have to make this year,” Hunter said. “What are we going to do, and how will we do it?”


Health-care expansion, education funding, state revenue shortfall, I-1185 all will make balancing budget difficult

Shopping locally pays big dividends


t’s Black Friday today, the day shoppers help put merchants in the financial “black” for the year. To help do this, national chains have dangled deals before the buying public to entice them into their stores. Three days later comes Cyber Monday, when we’re all suppose to go online and buy, buy, buy. But there’s another day that’s even more important: Small Business Saturday. It happens tomorrow, Nov. 24, across the nation. The event reminds people to shop locally at shops and stores based and operated here in our own communities. The owners of these shops do more than just sell products or offer services. They are our neighbors who support our schools and other institutions, participate in local activities and government and, all-in-all, make this a better community in which to live. Some numbers show how important they are. • When you spend $100 at an independent business, $68 returns to the local community. Spend that same amount at a national chain and it drops to $43. • Small business accounts for 75 percent of all new jobs. • Locally owned businesses reinvest in the local economy at a 60 percent higher rate than chains and internet retailers. • Small businesses create more than half the nonfarm private gross domestic product (GDP). • Locally owned and operated businesses create higher-paying jobs for you and your neighbors. • More of your tax dollars are reinvested in your community to fund local schools, hire more police officers and improve roads. Last year, more than one hundred million people nationwide came together to shop on Small Business Saturday. Let’s join them tomorrow – and other days throughout the year – to keep our local businesses and our community strong. – Craig Groshart, Bellevue Reporter

Christmas coming earlier every year


symptom of one of this nation’s most pressing issues reared its ugly head in my hometown last week, days before schedule and without warning or reason. Holiday decorations, which amount to a few wreaths around light posts and a few strings of lights on the 100-foot high Cedar tree in the center of town unceremoniously sprung up, signaling the beginning to the December holiday Josh Suman season. In years past, neighbors gathered around to watch the lights come alive to signify the turn from Thanksgiving. This year I assume many, like myself, got our first glimpse on the Thursday morning commute through town. Decorations are just one example of the December holidays encroaching into November, which seems to see its marquee holiday celebrated more for the sales to come the following day than the gesture it is named for: giving thanks. Black Friday has turned into “Black Thursday” and even “Black Thanksgiving Week” as sales have moved the once-sacred retail holiday into a weeklong price-cutting bonanza. Christmas


Conservation district makes a difference Through the years I have come to know the King County Conservation District (KCD) through educational classes about my land and the region. Because of my positive experience I enrolled in a farming/ horse care class taught by KCD. That led to the next class and the next as a desire to learn more. I’ve attended several worships over the past two years. Farm tours sponsored by KCD and Horses for Clean Water where also of value. Being able to meet the owners and see different was to do things on a farm is invaluable. Much of what I have learned has been incorporated at my farm. I’m

REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK music, which traditionally began playing only after Thanksgiving dessert had been consumed, has become appropriate as soon as Halloween candy starts to get stale. It isn’t the break from tradition that is the most bothersome, it’s the mindset behind it. Thanksgiving is not just a day full of food comas and a bad Detroit Lions football game. It is a day of reflection. Whether or not your family goes around the table to offer up something each is thankful for, the thoughts of those who sacrifice for our own wellbeing are never far off on Turkey Day. On Black Friday, in a whirlwind of discounts and doorbusters, that all changes, and with good reason. While we shop for gifts to give others, the reality of the American consumer Christmas experience for many now have a farm plan designed in coordination with KCD. The visits to my farm were extremely helpful, so much that I ended up signing up as a participant in the farm program. I do take the farm business seriously and believe part of our success has came from what I’ve learned from KCD, it’s materials/handouts and the educational classes. It’s also brought my farm and family to feel an added respect for the environment. We’ve learned how with planning and usually just our own labor we can make a difference in the environment.

Election renews faith The outcome of this election has renewed my faith in America. The demographics of the country are changing rapidly and because of this

is give-to-receive. Most of us only give gifts to those we know will return the gesture and homemade gifts or baked goods seem increasingly rare. It was just a generation ago that citrus fruit was a soughtafter stocking stuffer, but that no doubt seems further in the past as we receive yet another pen that doubles as a flashlight and moonlights as a tire pressure gauge. Without a doubt, the litany of fundraisers for coats, toys, food and gifts make the December portion of the holiday season one of the most expansive for charity giving and that part of the holiday season is welcome to extend year-round as far as I’m concerned. But Consumer Christmas can wait, at least until 12:00 a.m. on Black Friday. Josh Suman covers sports and recreation for the Reporter. He can be contacted at Josh Suman 453-453-5045 or both the public and private sectors are going to have to recognize that policies must take into account the needs and aspirations of all groups. I am very concerned that the Republicans are taking the wrong lessons from the fact that they were able to hold on the House, ignoring once again the concerns the public is expressing about the need to make decisions based on what is good for the country. For them to have signed a pledge not to raise taxes on the very wealthy is proof positive that they are not working in the best interest of the people but for the interest of those who have financed their campaigns. Finally I hope the media has learned a lesson from this election. They have the greatest responsibility of all to see to it that the public in fact has access to facts and not propaganda.

WHY SHARKS NEVER GO TO THE DENTIST Do you know why you have never seen a shark in the dentist’s chair? To begin with, sharks have about five rows of teeth at any one time. If they were to lose a tooth (by biting into a piece of really hard candy for instance), the next tooth in line would move into the lost tooth’s place. This helps explain why sharks never need bridges, crowns, or implants, but what about cavities? Well, it seems that sharks never get cavities. According to research that was recently conducted by English scientists, the outer surface of sharks’ teeth is composed of fluoride, which is the same decay-fighting ingredient found in most toothpaste. That, and they don’t have access to candy! Although human teeth are covered in a different mineral, both human teeth and shark teeth are equally hard. At NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, we help you decide what type of treatment would be right for you. Our team is comprised of a group of professionals dedicated to making your dental experience as pleasant as possible. You will find our staff knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful.

A few weeks ago when I walked into a hair salon a stylist, receptionist and the owner nearly crushed me in their efforts to make sure I had a robe. Later that day a restaurant hostess ran to hold the door open for me. It’s clear that grocery checkers receive customer service training, but with a different focus. Halfway through Ann Oxrieder scanning your items they ask if you found everything you were looking for. I always say yes, because by the time they ask the question I’m already paying the bill. Grocery store employees have been taught to thank you using your last name (a practice I prefer to the bank tellers who want to be a on first-name basis). It’s fine with me to remain anonymous, especially on hearing the panic in checkers’ voices when they look at my last name. Their relief when they finish stumbling over the pronunciation is palpable.

Bank tellers and their managers must have gone to the same school of customer service. Bankers leap to their feet and throw a perky greeting to you, even if you walk in with your hair in curlers hoping not to be noticed. The main shortcoming of teller training is that it leaves out the suggestion that tellers look at who’s in front of them before speaking. The query most likely to leave me speechless is, “Do you have big plans for the weekend?” Is he really looking at me? I suspect that most folks my age do not look like people who routinely plan something that a 25-year-old would consider exciting for a weekday, much less a weekend. Lately my husband and I have come up with a standard answer to this question: “Every day is the weekend,” we say, avoiding the topic of excitement entirely. Years ago, when I bought a Saturn, all the sales and service center employees had to come outside and sing to me and give me a rose. That was as embarrassing as having a crowd of strangers sing “Happy Birthday” at a restaurant, but it wasn’t enough to salvage Saturn. Still, I’m getting used to uber-friendly, only bristling at it occasionally. It’s better than being ignored. Ann Oxrieder has lived in Bellevue for 35 years. She retired after 25 years as an administrator in the Bellevue School District and now blogs about retirement at http://

Going to the Dentist Doesn’t Have to Be a Source of Stress

Eastside business leaders optimistic about economy Eastside business leaders have the highest level of optimism about the economy since 2006, with 60 percent of respondents more optimistic over last year and 83 percent of respondents saying the Puget Sound economy will expand - up almost 12 percent over last year. The findings come from a recent survey of Eastside business leaders conducted by the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce and released Nov. 15 at the Eastside Economic Forecast Breakfast. Complete survey results may be found in the Bellevue Chamber’s 2013 Economic Forecast Strategy Guide, available online at www. The Bellevue Chamber has been tracking the economic outlook of business leaders for the last 20 years. “As we chart the trends year over year we are amazed at how accurate an account the data reflects on what is happening in our marketplace,” said Betty Nokes, Bellevue Chamber president and CEO. “We are encouraged to see that local business leaders are generally optimistic about their own companies, with nearly 70 percent feeling that revenues will come in stronger than last year and 22 percent feel their revenue will at least hold steady.” The workforce prediction is positive with 41 percent of survey respondents expecting to add employees to their company in 2013. The bulk of the jobs increase is for companies between 11 and 250 employees. Top areas of work-

force expansion are marketing and sales, administration, and industry/technical specialists. Of the national factors impacting the Business Leader outlook, those of highest impact, according to those surveyed, are the U.S. budget deficit (fiscal cliff), access to capital and credit, and implementation of the Federal Healthcare Reform Act. Top ranked state and local business challenges they encounter include the regional economic climate, business taxation and regulation, employee benefits/ health care costs, and generating revenue. Keynote speaker Joe Quinlan, chief market strategist for Bank of America, was optimistic on the US economy forecasting 3.5 percent growth in 2013. He stated the top three economic issues for the U.S. are a skilled labor shortage, immigration and “the battle for the brain,” and the need to cement free trade agreements with China and Europe. Zillow, Inc. Chief Economist, Dr. Stan Humphries, noted that pricing in the Seattle metro housing market offers extreme affordability. The expectation is for solid growth in 2013, with pricing increases of 4.5 percent forecast for Bellevue, Mercer Island, and Redmond. Gary Guenther, senior vice president with Kidder Mathews echoed the positive trend, this time in commercial real estate for the Bellevue CBD with optimism led by tech anchor tenants looking to drive new development.

Issaquah, Woodinville, Tukwila, Seattle and Kent are happy to work with you to help ease your anxiety, so be sure to talk to them about it up front. If you are apprehensive about a procedure, ask them to explain it to you so you will know what to expect.

Getting over dental anxiety can save your smile and pocketbook.

If you are a little apprehensive about going to the dentist, you’re not alone. Fifty percent of Americans say they experience anxiety over visiting the dentist. Many admit they visit less frequently than they should as a result, and some avoid going to the dentist altogether. These skipped visits can have terrible consequences, and often lead to even higher levels of anxiety. Regular check-ups and teeth cleanings are the best way to avoid dental anxiety, because they help avoid the need for invasive and expensive dental procedures. Your new Bright Now! Dental office in Bellevue knows that the dentist may not be your favorite place to visit, but we want to help make your dental appointment as pleasant as possible. By following these three simple tips, you can help alleviate your stress and brighten your smile. Talk to your dentist Make sure your dentist knows you are nervous! The staff at Bright Now! Dental in Bellevue,

Ask questions Fear of the unknown can leave you to assume the worst case scenario, so don’t be afraid to ask questions about your visit. Your Bright Now! dentist or oral hygienist can walk you through the planned procedures and talk to you as the visit progresses. When you know ahead of time what to expect and how long will it take, you’ll feel much more at ease. Just do it Even if you don’t feel ready, convince yourself to visit a dentist. If it has been a long time since your last visit, you may be surprised at how much dental procedures and technology have improved. Though you may be apprehensive, the reasons to see your dentist far outweigh the short term benefits of avoidance. By maintaining regular dental visits, you will improve your oral health, decrease your anxiety and brighten your smile for years to come.

utility fees CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Even with the rate increases, Bellevue’s water, sewer, and storm rates would be competitive, in the mid to lower range when compared with neighboring cities, Utilities Director Nav Otal noted. By containing costs, the department was able to limit the proposed rate increases, she said. The Development Services Department is proposing increases of 6.3 to 6.9 percent in the hourly rates charged for land use, transportation, utilities and fire review and inspection services to bring rates into line with the cost of the services and to meet established cost re-

November 23, 2012 [7] covery policies. A 2.7 percent adjustment in building review and inspection fees is also proposed. A gap emerged between fees and the cost of services provided in 2010 and 2011, when hourly rates were held constant to keep construction costs down for builders and developers struggling through the economic downturn. The council closed part of the gap last year, with a 5 percent increase in hourly rates. From 2010 to 2012, the Development Services budget was cut by $4.2 million, with more than 30 staff positions eliminated. The proposed hourly rate and building permit fee adjustments are expected to generate an additional $712,000.

Bellevue sees benefit in stimulus investments Bellevue is marking the successful completion of its nine American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funded grant projects with the release of a video – “Bellevue: Driving the EVolution” (on Bellevue’s YouTube Channel). The video highlights a keystone project – the installation of electric vehicle charging stations in collaboration with regional and state partners. The stimulus grant was awarded in 2009 on the heels of the Great Recession in order to spur innovation and create jobs, at a time when most people had not even heard of cars without tailpipes.

Fast forward to 2012. With charging stations in Bellevue and all along the West Coast, electric vehicle drivers can now travel the I-5 corridor from Canada to Mexico without needing a drop of gasoline. The result is that businesses and individuals investing in electric cars are saving thousands of dollars in fuel costs per year, and getting around easily without contributing to the environmental and national security issues caused by our reliance on fossil fuels. A $1.2 million Energy Efficiency and Conservation block grant through ARRA also helped the city implement energy efficiency and resource conservation projects that will save natu-

ral resources and money on an ongoing basis. These included: City Hall lighting upgrades, which save an estimated $10,000 per year; Parks facility and ball field lighting upgrades, which save an estimated $30,000 per year; Fleet hybrid and electric vehicle upgrades, which save an estimated $100,000 per year; and Home energy reports, which saved an estimated $4.2 million during the program period in the seven participating cities (Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, Mercer Island, Redmond, Renton and Sammamish). All of the city’s ARRA projects and investments directly boosted employment.

Plug in to a good book I

have one e-reader and two kids, which can be a problem. We all want to read, but our books are sometimes trapped on one device. And, while we have an amazing amount of hard copy books, there is something about the e-reader that makes the kids come running when they see it. My daughter loves the read aloud feature on some e-books and my son likes the combination of stories and gadgets. I suspect he’s also playing Angry Birds between chapters, but I Darcy Brixey share it anyway. Sometimes, when the bickering gets to be too much, I can send them to the databases. King County Library System has a great collection of anytime reading databases for kids. To find them, visit

databases and click on the subject heading marked “kids” then log on with your KCLS card number and PIN. BookFlix and Tumblebooks are household favorites because they feature children’s books and an accompanying video. These are also a sure hit for a quick activity when I’m trying to get dinner on the table. When they are logged in to the database, I don’t have to worry about advertising or stumbling upon inappropriate content. Tumblebooks lets you search separately for videos, books, and even puzzles and games. The books have a read aloud feature for emerging or struggling readers which can be turned on or off. Content can be searched by title or subject, or by reading level. Each book also contains a lesson plan, a quiz and the option to create a book report or certificate of completion. The videos are short, often under five minutes, and cover nonfiction topics such as geography, ani-

mals and science. The database also has a feature that allows you to create a playlist so videos or books can run one after the other. Bookflix has a different approach. Fiction storybook videos are paired with a nonfiction book and are arranged by subjects such as alphabet, people and places or adventures. One example is a Curious George storybook video and a nonfiction book about monkeys. You may recognize the Weston Woods videos from Reading Rainbow, which are always fun to revisit. In the search box, you can search by grade level, language, and even running time of the video storybook. As winter approaches and those long nights set in, it’s great to curl up with a good book. We sit in front of the fireplace with our e-readers and laptops immersed in stories. I’m sure it’s not quite the picture that Norman Rockwell would have painted, but we are still enjoying good books. That’s when everybody wins. Darcy Brixey is the teen services librarian at the Bellevue Library. She’d like to tell you she loves to read, but it’s an expectation of the job.

Boys and Girls Clubs set healthy living field day The Boys and Girls Clubs of Bellevue will partner with the Jim Mora “Count On Me” Family Foundation with a field day of games for kids Nov. 28. The event, at the South Bellevue Community Center, is designed to promote creative ways for kids to stay active. More than 100 kids will celebrate 50-plus days of attending club programs with the field day. The event is part of the Boys and Girls Clubs “Triple Play”

healthy lifestyles program that focuses on promoting healthy lifestyles in three parts: mind, body, and soul. Each year more than 1,000 kids at the club participate in Triple Play programs every day at 11 sites across Bellevue. The club also provides more than 185,000 healthy snacks each year to members, many of whom would otherwise go without a healthy food option.

Snow preparations urged It’s that time of the year again – snow. As the first flakes begin to fall, it’s time to prepare for rain, wind, snow and ice, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation. Taking the time to prepare now will save time and reduce stress during the first winter storm, DOT officials say. Here’s what drivers can do to prepare for wintry roadway conditions: ■ Download, print and carry the WSDOT Winter Driving Guide at http:// ■ Download the WSDOT mobile app to your smartphone at http://www. products/ ■ Get your car ready and plan extra time to cross all mountain passes, including

heavily-traveled routes such as Snoqualmie Pass, Stevens Pass and White Pass. ■ Carry chains and know the traction and chain requirements. Mountain-pass traction and chain requirements are available on the WSDOT website, highway advisory signs and highway advisory radio. ■ Preset 530 AM and 1610 AM on your vehicle’s radio before traveling. Some vehicle manufacturers recommend against the use of tire chains. The Washington State Patrol provides a list of approved, alternative traction devices when crossing a mountain pass requires the use of chains (see below) Studded tires are legal for use only between Nov. 1 and March 31 in Wash-

ington state. Motorists are encouraged to visit a tire dealer to learn more about tires that provide traction and are legal for year-round use. The WSP also reminds all drivers and freight haulers that state law requires commercial vehicles and combinations of vehicles more than 10,000 pounds grossvehicle-weight rating to carry sufficient tire chains between Nov. 1 and April 1, including some larger passenger trucks, SUVs, recreational vehicles and trucks hauling trailers. Failing to carry chains will cost heavy-truck drivers $124. When highway advisories call for chains, drivers who don’t chain up will face a $500 penalty.

Arts & Entertainment Arts Roundup Twilight’s last film sparkles

Contact and submissions: Keegan Prosser or 425.453.4602

Arts and entertainment activities


ears after the first Twilight Saga film flooded theaters with exuberant fans of the bestselling series, the last installment, “Breaking Dawn Part 2,” has finally come out. While the opening night crowd at one theater wasn’t as filled with fans as the first film, they were very energetic and eagerly cheered for their favorite characters and were engaged with the film. The final film begins with Bella emerging after her transformation into a vampire and discovering her new self. She and Edward Cullen are still married and now have a unique, half-human half-vampire daughter. Conflict soon surfaces as a visiting vampire mistakes their daughter for a forbidden vampire child and alerts the hostile vampire authorities, the Volturi. One of the most enjoyable parts Aran Kirschenmann of this film is the introduction of many new characters. The Cullens recruit other vampires from around the world. These new characters create more fascinating dynamics and the incoming vampires often have unique and intriguing special powers. The film had a great and surprising twist in the story, which truly caught people off guard and put most of the audience into audible shock. The film was also action packed due to the plot’s conflicts and Bella trying out her

new vampire skills. Many aspects of “Breaking MOVIE Dawn Part 2” were improvements over Part 1. It was not as gruesome and revolting as part one. However, there were quite a few slow parts, which could have been filled with scenes from the book. Bella and Edward’s daughter, Renesmee, often looked clearly digital and not very real, especially when she was a baby. There weren’t many scenes of her, and the film never really revealed her personality. The film ended with a montage, tied into the plot, of Bella and Edward’s love story which concluded the saga very nicely. Although the film had its slow moments, it also had a significant amount of riveting and amusing ones as well. Devoted fans of the Twilight Saga will not be disappointed with its ending in “Breaking Dawn Part 2.”

A 19-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills and a pair of defeats to Tennessee and Indianapolis have the Dolphins entering the game on a three-game losing streak. Miami brings the league’s ninth ranked rush defense into the game and will likely focus much of its attention on Marshawn Lynch, who has 1,005 yards and five touchdowns on 212 carries in 2012, good for nearly five yards per tote. The Cal alum has gone over 100 yards in each of his last four games.

What’s happening in sports and recreation

New program at Tyee could build base for prep programs

Bellevue marches back to Tacoma Only two wins stand between Bellevue’s football program and yet another measure of history, as the Wolverines moved past Peninsula 40-3 on Friday in the 3A state quarterfinals to head back to the Tacoma Dome for next week’s semi-final round. Scott Whiting, Bishard Baker and Myles Jack scored first half touchdowns for the Wolverines, which sport a pair of number two national rankings and ran away with the win. Place kicker Ryan Bordner hit a 48-yard field goal, which set a new school record. The winner of a Saturday quarterfinal between Kennedy and KingCo foe Mount Si will be Bellevue’s semi-final opponent. Eastside Catholic faces Marysville-Pilchuck and North Thurston meets University in tomorrow’s other 3A quarterfinal games.

Austin Strother, a pitcher with the Interlake baseball team and senior for the Saints, has committed to play baseball with the Washington State University Cougars. Strother was named to the prestigious Area Code Games during the summer and will be a key piece of the Saints’ playoff hopes in 2013.

Bellevue gymnast signs with UW Linda Reichenbach (left) and Caryn Heffernan say a middle school program would be a great benefit to kids. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter Newport girls cross country coach Caryn Heffernan said Reichenbach’s dedication has been an invaluable asset to cultivating an interest in competitive running, which she said is one of many conduits kids can use to ease the transition to high school. “It’s really great for middle schoolers to get involved because it gets them in new social networks,” she said. “We have a camp for incoming freshman during the sumer and we have them meet kids. We have kids that met at that camp and were best friends through high school.” The first iteration of the middle school team at Tyee met for six weeks, but were left without any competition with fellow district middle schools devoid of a team and those in neighboring towns part of the WIAA’s Triangle League, meaning they were prohibited from competing against non-WIAA members like Tyee. That hangup stopped a potential meet with Islander Middle School and led to Reichenbach’s discovery that Tillicum had begun a running club in a similar vein to what she was doing. That led to the competition the kids and coaches had been hoping for since the idea was formulated. SEE XC, 14

Jessica Nesis, an Issaquah High School student who trains at Bellevue’s Gymnastics East, has signed to continue her career and education with the University of Washington Huskies and coach Joanne Bowers. “Jessica is a local gymnast, who attended our camp, and has continued to impress us with her work ethic and progress,” Bowers said in a press release. “She could help us on bars right away and is showing big progress on vault and beam. We value her work ethic and Jessica Nesis positive attitude and are really looking forward to working with her every day. The fact that she has always dreamed of being a Husky and bleeds purple is just a bonus!” Nesis was a level 10 state UB champion in 2012 and was named Gymnast of the Year in 2010.

Regardless of the sport, there is no shortage of programs, teams and leagues for youth in the Bellevue area to join. Whether taking to the pint-sized diamond for a Little League game or firing the first of thousands of jump shots in AAU basketball, team sports offer a consistent outlet for boys and girls of all ages. But when it came to running, Linda Reichenbach saw a void. “Those can be intimidating to some kids,” she said of team sports, which become more selective at a younger age each year. “Running is kind of the everyman’s sport.” After three of her own children finished high school at International School (they competed in sports for Newport), Reichenbach found there was another void as well, one that was previously filled by various volunteering endeavors around the district. So she decided to take action that would fill both and create a new structure for middle schoolers in Bellevue to find an accessible athletic outlet. “For track and cross country, there are some select and club programs,” Reichenbach said. “But not something that is available to everybody.” Without interscholastic athletics in Bellevue middle schools, students have limited options for competing in individual sports until reaching high school. Those with the talent, financial means and countless hours to spare can find a foothold in one of the select programs Reichenbach talked about, or at a private club in the case of tennis or swimming. But for economically disadvantaged youngsters, or those who play for enjoyment rather than a college scholarship, the opportunities were not as apparent. Until Reichenbach began making a change that could soon sweep across the entire BSD. After originally hoping to coach with the high school program, she decided that dedicating her time to the development of a middle school running team would best utilize her efforts. But without any foundation for a program, Reichenbach started from square one. She met with Jean Verbka, a counselor at Tyee Middle School and decided the new team could be added to the intramural sports programming at the school. But the news wasn’t all good and certainly wasn’t what Reichenbach expected. “We’re only talking about Monday, Tuesday and Thursday,” she said. “And only after tutorial, but before the activity bus leaves, that’s 48 minutes.” While the limited practice time was at first a source of consternation, Reichenbach soon realized it was an ideal setup for a group designed for kids getting their first taste of competitive running and sports in general. “I know how burned out kids can get,” she said. “They wanted to be at practice and were excited to be there. I realized it was the perfect amount of time.”

[14] November 23, 2012


Ideally, she would like to see athletics reincorporated at the middle school level throughout the Bellevue School District as it

was in previous generations. While that possibility seems unlikely with financial shortfalls and a decidedly different academic model, Reichenbach said nothing will be able to dissuade her from expanding the options for

the intramural program in the BSD and making sure every student feels like sports are accessible. “My short term expectations are to become part of the intramural programs and be able to have meets with the other middle schools,” she said. “We can

open up opportunities for kids to get exercise, feel good about themselves and build up the programs at the high schools. I’m on a mission.” Josh Suman: 425-453-5045;

At the end of the trip they had spent a little more than expected - $125 - and had enough supplies to fill five boxes, one more than they planned. All boxes collected in Bellevue will be transferred to Tukwila next week. From there the shoe box gifts will be hand-delivered to needy children in 100 countries around the

first year the school served as a collection site for the Eastside. Collection Site Coordinator Tina Ogimachi said the school decided to be a collection site because they saw it as a great way to serve the community and as a way to let people know where the school is. She said several hundred boxes - comprised of items including T-shirts, toys, school supplies, washcloths, toothbrushes and toothpaste – were dropped off throughout the week. On Friday, Nov. 16, Eastside Christian teacher Suzie Fouble and her third graders took a field trip to Target to purchase items to create four boxes to donate. She broke her class in to four groups and allotted them $20 each to spend; the girls shopped for items to create a box for a girl


‘Tis the season - for giving that is. And two Bellevue schools are leading the way, collecting a variety of items for people in need this holiday season. Last week at St. Louise Parish School, students worked to collect food items as part of their annual November Thanksgiving Basket Project. Led by the two sixth grade classes, this marked the first year in which the school has partnered with Hopelink Food Bank in Bellevue, the organization chosen by the sixth grade classes as their year-long service project. For the Thanksgiving Basket Project,the entire school supported the 6th graders in their mission to feed families in need. Through their efforts, the students donated 1,500 pounds of food to Hopelink, providing Thanksgiving meals to 20 families. Bellevue’s Eastside Christian School also continued its tradition of charitable giving this year, as they served as an official collection point for the Operation Christmas Child program. The school has been involved with Operation Christmas Child, a yearround project through Samaritan’s Purse, for several years, but this is the
