Residents disagree on what city should do with proposed park land Some concerned a public park would invite criminals near their homes BY RAECHEL DAWSON


any residents of the Garden Gate neighborhood want a nearby one-acre piece of land turned into a small children’s public park, but others in the surrounding neighborhood say that opening up the enclosed space may subject the site to criminal activity. Funds for the potential

park face an August 2013 looming deadline and it is this cutoff-point that has prompted the Garden Gate Homeowners Association (HOA) to take action. “We were told the developer had set aside a space for a park,” said HOA president Isaac Roybal. “The homes were sold with the promise of a park as a value proposition.” Seventeen fenced homes keep unruly Himalayan

blackberry bushes at bay as they make up the perimeter of the open space in a north Juanita neighborhood. Four Garden Gate homes abut the “Pharaoh’s Head” property to the north, while 13 other homes encompass it. The city-owned land is just east of Juanita High School and south of Fire Station 27. It is home to squirrels and other wildlife. But a resident of one of the 13 homes, Jim Jeffrey, said less than one year ago his cul-de-sac was “invaded” by cars that met drug dealers who would walk through

a gate that led to Hamilton Square, a nearby townhouse complex, which connected to the Juanita Park and Ride. “They conducted their business and then made a quick getaway back out to Northeast 128th and the I-405 freeway,” said Jeffrey, who is worried a park could turn the enclosed space into a site for drug trafficking. “It was a drug spot where Cadillac Escalades and young girls and boys would go. (It was) an open air drug market.” The Kirkland Police Department and the Hamilton [ more LAND page 6 ]

Council backs neighbors, dismisses Potala Village settlement agreement BY RAECHEL DAWSON

The Kirkland City Council did not approve a proposed Potala Village settlement agreement Nov. 20 put forth by developer Lobsang Dargey and his wife Tamara Agassi Dargey. When it was time to address the resolution during the Nov. 20 council meeting, no council members made a motion. The same inaction occurred when the mayor asked for a motion to halt the current moratorium on the Neighborhood Business (BN) zones. This is the fourth moratorium against development on the Lake Street BN zone. When Dargey initially submitted the project proposal last year, it sparked a controversy between more than 1,000 nearby residents, the developer and the city over the project’s scale and neighborhood impacts. Potala Village is a proposed 143 apartment unit project on a 1.2 acre lot with a view of Lake Washington in the Moss Bay neighborhood. The

building would have 6,000 square feet of retail space, plus retail parking. The Dargeys agreed to a settlement on Nov. 2 that would have called for the council to lift the moratorium, currently set to end on Dec. 31. The settlement would have also allowed the developers to submit a building permit application for the property of no more than 100 residential units with commercial space on the bottom, which is allowed under the current BN-zone laws. Additionally, the plaintiffs agreed in the settlement to specific design elements, but asked the city to forgo the design review process. The settlement asked the city to process their substantial development permit and environmental impact statements in a quick manner and refrain from any changes on the BN zones before the plaintiffs could submit their building permit application. Under current law, the property would be eligible for 1.7 parking spaces per multi-family residential unit. [ more POTALA page 6 ]

Swedish singer Viktoria Tocca on set for love song film shoot at Heathman Hotel

from the album, will be performing several of their greatest hits as well as holiday-themed songs honoring all of winter’s holidays. Lavin is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and recording artist living in Geneva, N.Y. With 20 albums to her name, Lavin continues to perform her contemporary-pop compilations worldwide. Lavin’s music and humorous performance personality match Uncle Bonsai’s original, contemporary folk style, according to a press release. Only an acoustic guitar joins the group, made up of Arni Adler, Patrice O’Neil, and Andrew Ratshin, with vocal harmonies and humor accompanying their wide range of tracks. “Just One Angel,” the album that gives name to the tour, is a holiday compilation celebrating Hanukah, Christmas, Solstice and New Year’s through a range of humorous, lighthearted lyrics and soulful melodies. More than 20 singers and songwriters worked on the album that Ann Carrigan, the director at Poetry In Motion who is handling press for the artists, describes as “a skewed look at the holidays.” Lavin and Uncle Bonsai are known for their wide range of music. “(There are) intricate vocal harmonies that are very smart. It is cutting edge, contemporary folk pop,” Carrigan said. Andrew Ratshin, a member of Uncle Bonsai for more than 30 years, describes the group’s sound as “contemporary three-point harmony, folk pop music.” While the tour is not exclusively a holiday concert, seasonal songs will be mixed in with each artist’s regular tracks. “The tour is something we put together a year-and-a-half ago. It is a holiday release that doesn’t sing the same songs over and over… it is alternative seasonal songs,” Ratshin said. The idea to make a seasonal album began in 1987 and has developed over the years into the finished project “Doug’s Greatest Christmas Ever,” which was released last year. The group decided to go on tour last year, settling upon the idea of an alternative holiday concert after the success of the album. “The idea is for a fun evening with special guests, mixing holiday and non-holiday songs for a relaxed, fun time,” Ratshin said. “Just One Angel,” the most recently released album, is aimed at lighthearted, creative entertainment. “It is not simply a spin on holiday songs. (The songs) are

since the release of her second album, “All I Am.” Tocca has currently won nine awards, including “Artist of the Year” at the 2012 Indie Music Channel Awards. Now, she lives in Transylvania, Romania with her husband and children. “It’s a very weird place … Beautiful but strange country,” she said, explaining that she moved there because her husband found work. Tocca hopes to move to Los Angeles in the spring of 2013. And she hopes there will be a fifth music video with Pic Films as another project in the foreseeable future. Tocca is the second singer this month to visit the Heathman. Canadian recording artist Marika Siewert sang for a private party at the hotel on Nov. 17.

Swedish singer Viktoria Tocca was on set for the filming of a Spanish love song at the Heathman Hotel last weekend. The filming was done by a Redmond company, Pic Films of Arc Media Studios, which chose the Kirkland hotel because the business was very accommodating.

all original material… some funny, some serious. You are not going to just hear new arrangements of traditional stuff,” Ratshin said. Both Lavin and Uncle Bonsai’s style appear on the album through hits such as Lavin’s “Good Thing He/ She Can’t Read My Mind,” “What Was I Thinking?” and Uncle Bonsai’s popular tracks “The Baby’s Head” an d “The Monster in the Closet.” In addition to these enduring hits, the album contains holiday songs like “When You’re Single at Christmastime,” “Is It Hanukkah or Chanukkah?,” and “Doug’s Greatest Christmas Ever.” “Because it is a shared show, we get to do a tight set and pick and chose our favorites,” Ratshin said. The musicians will be performing at the Kirkland Perfor-

mance Center at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. Tickets are $32 and available online at or by calling the box office at 425-893-9900. Special guests Larry Murante and Hilary Field will be joining the “Just One Angel” Kirkland event.

Swedish singer filmed her fourth music video at Kirkland’s Heathman Hotel last Friday and continued throughout the weekend. “I’m really thankful to film at this hotel,” Viktoria Tocca said. “I feel really welcome.” Film director Moses Olson with Redmond-based Pic Films of Arc Media Studios said the hotel has been very accommodating and giving during their shoot. He said the hotel also provided room accommodations for the singer. “They let us move things around if we need,” said Olsen, adding that there has been a lot of open communication, too. Tocca will sing “Besame Mucho,” a Spanish

love song from the 1940s and she says the Heathman provides a beautiful setting for the romantic video. The music video will feature Tocca and KC Guyer, a Northwest actor, in a love story. In the video, Guyer is Tocca’s bodyguard who soon becomes her love interest. “(The video) plays off of her protector who saves her and they fall in love,” said Guyer. Olson said a particularly romantic scene will ensue in the alleyway across from the Heathman, noting there will be a fight scene somewhere in the mix as well. Tocca has been involved in the arts since age 10. She grew up in Sweden but has worked abroad in places such as Germany, Denmark, England and many more

Lessons learned following our home burglary Our home in the Everest Neighborhood was broken into Nov. 13. Unfortunately, a work colleague just informed us that his home in the Rose Hill neighborhood was broken into Tuesday in a similar manner. Because we no longer feel that Kirkland is the sleepy, safe city we once thought it was, we would like to share information on what happened, and the lessons we learned, in order to help you protect yourself and your neighbors. At about noon on Nov. 13, a dead-bolted door on the side of our house was broken down by a series of hard kicks that broke the frame. The perpetrator carried a garden trowel, found outside, into the house and left it in a back room (as a weapon)? The perpetrator went into every room on the main and second floors. Areas hardest hit were the office and master bedroom – all drawers, cabinets were ransacked and contents strewn. The perpetrator mainly took cash, jewelry and small electronics (I’m guessing the perpetrator was on foot and took all he could carry). Lessons learned: 1. Install/activate a security system! We calculated that the amount that was stolen was a greater cost than 15 years of a high-end security system with a monthly monitoring subscription. 2. Take photos of valuables, open cabinets, open drawers, rooms in general. This will not only help you to document what was stolen for the police and insurance reports, but also help you remember what was there, especially if the entire area has been torn apart and scattered. 3. Don’t hide valuables in your clothes drawers. 4. Insurance only covers a tiny amount of stolen cash. 5. Make sure you have insurance riders to cover valuables. 6. Pay attention to unusual noises at your neighbors’ houses. A neighbor heard our door being smashed in, but didn’t realize what it was. Better to call the police and have them find a dog knocked over the garbage than to find out later it was a home invasion. 7. According to police, nearly all break-ins occur in the middle of the day (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) via kicking in a back or side door where they won’t be seen from the street. There is a lot of online information on how to make these areas less vulnerable. 8. Take down license numbers/car ID of any strange cars in the neighborhood. 9. Take photos of any strangers in our neighborhood that just don’t seem right, and call the police if they frighten you, or make you feel uncomfortable. 10. I recommend that if you don’t already have a neighborhood-wide email distribution list, spend time this weekend gathering one! 11. Set up or re-energize your Neighborhood Block Watch (contact the police department for more information). If you are victimized, I recommend reaching out to others who might have gone through a similar event. As numerous people have shared with me: “Until you go through a home invasion, you cannot comprehend the intense feelings of vulnerability, fear, humiliation, along with loss, sadness and anger.” It really helps to know that you are not alone.

Offended by accusation that poor people are potential sex offenders I read online the story you published regarding Tent City 4 (TC4) and some of the comments. I noticed how you try to be fair with your reporting, and not overly judgmental, but you only heard and wrote one side of the story, and the reactions prove this. It appears the community does not understand why SHARE does not want to allow weekly sex of-

fender checks. Proof of this is in the first comment made by Rick Ockerman, where he thinks that this alleged sex offender would have been identified if weekly checks were done. Mr. Ockerman is wrong because the offender was never convicted in a court of law, and therefore was never added to the sex offender list. There was no warrant for his arrest because no warrant had been issued, and only after he was admitted into the camp was a warrant issued for his arrest. This is the only good thing that happened throughout all of this, which is that because of the warrant checks made during the man’s intake into TC4 the police knew where to find him and pick him up quickly. It should also be made very clear that the alleged crime was not a random act that took place in the neighborhood where the camp is staying. In fact, it did not even take place in King County but in Pierce County. TC4 has always been a very safe place for both its residents and the neighbors. TC4 protocol for new intakes is to check for any outstanding warrants and sexual offenses. If a new intake has even a minor traffic infraction that resulted in a non-extraditable warrant, then that person is rejected because of the outstanding warrant. The priest of St. John Vianney requested the camp undergo random weekly sex offender checks because one yet-to-be-convicted sex offender was arrested within the camp. There is no one within the camp who would refuse such a request because we the campers are all decent people and just thinking of child molestation is revolting to us. We at TC4, after being caught in a situation like that, feel sympathetic to the church people, who have been so very kind to us. So yes, we would all agree with such a request. But, the SHARE community as a whole voted against such an action because it discriminates against poor people. The other SHARE members do not stay in the camp, they are not on the front lines, they do not have any kind of friendship with the church people as we the campers do, and so their perspective is different. The SHARE community considers the weekly sex offender checks to be discrimination, and here’s an analogy to help understand this: Imagine that you have children and a man bought a house next door to you. Would you march over there and demand that he be investigated as a sex offender? Would you then insist on him being investigated every week? And what about the apartment complex down the street, would you march down there and demand from the manager that everyone in the complex be investigated as a sex offender? Would you submit yourself to such a request by someone else? If you are not willing to demand this from your neighbors,

then why would you insist that it be done against poor people who cannot afford to live in an apartment? TC4, by invitation, is staying at a Catholic church, which is an organization that is notorious for child molestations by its priests. Therefore, would it be wrong to demand that every priest in the church submit to a sex offender check? Would it be wrong to demand that they undergo a random weekly sex offender investigation? And what about the congregation, which would be an ideal place for a pedophile to lurk, would it be wrong for the entire congregation to undergo a sex offender check and then be checked randomly on a weekly basis? If the Catholic church refuses to exact this on themselves then why are they demanding this from poor people who are barely surviving day-by-day living in a tent? Is this not hypocritical? It is highly unlikely that any Catholic parishioner has ever undergone a warrant and sex offender check, but if anyone wants to enter into TC4 then they are required to submit to these. Weekly sex offender checks are a discrimination against the poor, implying that poor people are potential sex offenders. I am greatly offended by such an accusation! I am not willing to accept and wear that label! I will not wear that label and pass it on to some other homeless person who should come after me! I will stand and fight against it. I have no criminal record at the age of 50 and I have absolutely no intention of beginning one any time in the future. We at TC4 did nothing wrong, and it is wrong to accuse us of being a danger to our society just because we are poor. The campers who left TC4 and started Camp Unity used the fear and hatred of homeless people that is so prevalent in our society to gain their own sympathetic advantage within the community. This world is full of such people who attack, belittle, put down and destroy the integrity of someone who is better than they are in order to make themselves look superior in the eyes of others, so as to then manipulate them into thinking like them. And this is exactly what the souls at Camp Unity did, in order to start and fund their own special little encampment that has no accountability. Only the best of TC4 remained with the camp – the strong and courageous – to keep it going for other homeless people who follow and need an honest and safe place to stay. As for myself, and the others in TC4, we will stand in what little we have, our integrity, and oppose the proud people of this world who use their fear and hatred of poverty as weapons against poor people.

Canadian trucker convicted in drug ring case led by Kirkland man


Investigators were at the scene of a house fire Monday to determine how the crawl space of a 4,000-square-foot house caught fire Sunday night. Kirkland Firefighters quickly responded to a home located at the 5700 block of 125 Ln. N.E. in the Bridle Trails neighborhood at around 5:15 p.m. Acting Battalion Chief Kenneth Henderson said the house is “probably not” livable. “(It’s ) due to the fact that there was enough fire damage under the flooring that could have damaged the electrical or gas, which has been shut down,” Henderson said. Firefighters had to cut several areas of flooring to get to the crawl space where the appliance fire was contained.

Also, two months ago Jeffrey said he was approached by a broadcast news reporter in search of a man who had allegedly murdered his wife in Tacoma. The suspect’s car was abandoned on a nearby street and the anchor from the news outlet thought he might be hiding in the space. He was supposedly running from police on foot. Jeffrey let the camera crew into his house to view the scene but was “delighted to hear them all agree that nobody could get through that area on foot or any other way.” “The camera crew … agreed with me that it would be pretty difficult for someone to negotiate the area in back of my yard with its blackberry bushes,” Jeffrey said. So, when Jeffrey received a letter from the City of Kirkland on Oct. 12 inviting residents to attend a Juanita Neighborhood Association public meeting to discuss improvement for the space, he was outraged. Jeffrey promptly wrote his own letter and distributed about 100 copies to neighbors in both neighborhoods explaining his opposition. Resident Donald Bartleson also created a petition with 23 collected signatures of people opposing the construction of a park. “They need to let go of this little park,” said Candice


Bartleson, Donald’s wife. Neighbors wrote to the city to explain they were concerned about how the park would affect their privacy, how it could affect wildlife and whether traffic would increase. “Clearing this area out will make it available to undesirable visitors and will leave homeowners vulnerable,” said Mary Charlton in an Oct. 23 email to the city. Teresa Lupinacci said she was concerned how Kirkland police would be able to patrol the potential park surrounded by houses and with only two entrances. “I wonder how many times this needs to be discussed before the city catches on to the concerns of the neighborhood,” Lupinacci said. This is not the first time interested parties proposed park development, nor is it the first time the idea has been met with resistance. About 10 years ago, the Juanita Neighborhood Association sought to develop the site through grant funding but after they were met with localized opposition, they decided against it. Then, in 2008, Sundquist Homes developed the 24 houses known as the Garden Gate neighborhood and homeowners, like Roybal, were supposedly told there would be a park just past the end of their cul-de-sac. “I’m confident that our sales team would not promise a park,” said Sundquist Homes senior vice president Bob Vick. “We were aware that acre was to be designated for a park.” The idea of a park stemmed from a trade the

Among other terms, both parties would have had to agree to stay the current litigation. Although the council did not approve the settlement agreement, they did pass a motion to bring back a zoning ordinance for the Dec. 11 meeting, which calls for a residential zoning density of 48 units per acre in the BN zones, according to city attorney Robin Jenkinson. Lake Street area resident Tom Grimm, Peter Powell and View Pointe board president Jack Arndt praised the council for listening to citizens’ concerns and urged them to pass the 48 units per acre zoning ordinance, despite their initial wish for 12 units per acre. “We ask you to reject the settlement proposal,” Grimm said, “and adopt the zoning ordinance of 48 units per acre. We really are here to reach a compromise.” Arndt pointed out the law would allow for 58 units on the 1.2 acre property. Anything larger would reduce the property value of the surrounding homes, he says. If this ordinance passes, Jenkinson said the Potala project would be “subject to the next new zoning” after the moratorium is lifted at the end of December. Jenkinson said the plaintiffs still have a pending lawsuit against the city and have the opportunity to add additional claims.

(Top) North Juanita residents (left to right) Jim Jeffrey, Candice Bartleson and Beverly Fredrickson oppose a public park that some want the city to develop next to their homes. They are concerned the park would bring potential criminal activity near their homes. MATT PHELPS, Kirkland Reporter (Bottom) Garden Gate Homeowner’s Association secretary Steve Guidi (left), HOA president Isaac Roybal (center) and Garden Gate resident Mansor Jafry stand in front of the entrance to the proposed park. They say a park would offer children a safe place to play. RAECHEL DAWSON, Kirkland Reporter developer, Sundquist Homes, made with the city, which allowed them to forgo a sidewalk on one side of the street if they gave the city $43,000 for future development of a park in the open space. The developer laid down one sidewalk to the west, which leads directly into the open space, as if one day there would be an entrance to a neighborhood park. “I don’t think that our expectation (is) to have the



LWIT adds engineering technology degree Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWIT) has added a new Associate of Applied Science Engineering Technology degree. This degree is designed for students who like the practical application of engineering, and who would benefit from a hands-on, rather than a more theoretically-inclined, program. It can lead to employment in as little as two years, or can provide to a solid foundation for further studies in engineering and technology. “Our Engineering

money reverted,” said Vick of the 2013 deadline. The city’s only requirement is to use the money on a public works project for improvement in the “general area of Juanita,” not necessarily for this particular site, although that would be the city’s first priority, according to Parks and Community Services Deputy Director Michael Cogle. “Our plan would be to hold a meeting with interestTechnology AAS degree has been designed for those students who really enjoy seeing the fruits of their labor - working with their hands, developing new designs, diagnosing and fixing problems,” said Dr. Steve Addison, acting dean of New Programs at LWIT. “Traditional engineering programs focus on theory with relatively little time available for practical work. We’ve designed our program to really emphasize the application of engineering principles to real-world problems. We’ve developed an innovative approach that directly relates math and computing to the problems that are being taught in engineering classes to ease obstacles to learning math. And, unlike larger institutions, our classes are small, and tailored to help each student stay motivated, and succeed.”

ed residents in the area that would like to tell us more on their thoughts and consult with the Parks Department with the goal of making that decision,” Cogle said. “We certainly want to learn more from the residents and the police department on the criminal activity.” And so does the HOA. “If those crimes are happening today, without the park, how can we work with (residents) to fix it?” said Roybal, who pointed out police have a heavy presence at Fire Station 27. “Drug-free zones have double penalties. There are multiple safety measures, but we can still do more if needed … We still want to solve this drug problem if a park is not put in place.” Within the last five months, indicates a couple of assaults around the neighborhood, some car break-ins, drug violations, DUI’s and vehicle thefts in the Park and Ride area, with some burglaries on N.E. 132nd St. and N.E. 128th St. that sandwich the neighborhoods. Many children from the Garden Gate neighborhood often play in the street and when commuters don’t realize it’s a dead-end street, they turn around and speed out. Roybal said many parents are on edge because of it. The park would fulfill the city’s Park Plan, which identifies this part of Juanita as in need of a neighborhood park. The “level of service” goal is for a park to exist within a quarter-mile radius of each residence. But the $43,000 the city could use wouldn’t do much but clear out the blackberry All students in the Engineering Technology program take a series of core engineering, math and computing classes that provides the fundamental knowledge all engineers require to be successful in the workforce. To complete their degree, students then choose one of four focus areas: manufacturing, electronics, biomedical engineering, or renewable energy. Graduates can either enter the workforce immediately, or use the AAS degree as the foundation for a baccalaureate degree. Demand for AAS degree graduates in engineering and technology is at an alltime high. At a Senate Aviation subcommittee hearing with Sen. Maria Cantwell last July addressing aerospace worker shortages, a Boeing representative testified that skilled employees

bushes. The HOA recognizes there would need to be outside help, and they want to be involved. “It’s not a full-fledged million dollar park,” said Garden Gate resident Mansoor Jafry. “I think the word ‘park’ is sending the wrong message.” If the park was built, the HOA says they do not intend to remove any trees. Because privacy is a big issue, the HOA hopes the money will stretch so “privacy trees” may be planted. The hope is the park would be for the residents of the surrounding neighborhoods and for this reason, HOA secretary Steve Guidi isn’t concerned about extra traffic. The HOA states that 20 of their 24 homes in Garden Gate support the project proposal, which has goals to clear out the space, maintain privacy and keep a safe environment. “… In general I think adding parks curbs – not encourages – drug activity,” said Hamilton Square townhouse resident Elizabeth Apple in an email to the city. Although neither neighborhood has reached a decision, some members of the Parks Board and the Kirkland Police Department will be meeting in December to discuss the issue of crime, but plan to take up the issue with residents again in January.

More information To see a map of the property, please see the map with the online story at with associate’s degrees in such fields as engineering technology are in short supply, with this situation becoming more critical as the manufacturing upswing in the Puget Sound region expands. As a result, salaries for positions such as technicians, product designers, test engineers and the like are on the rise. Jobs for engineering technicians pay well. According to the Workforce Development Council of Seattle and King County, engineering technicians are making $21 to $36 an hour. LWIT’s Engineering Technology degree opens the door to a rewarding and high-paying career. Those interested in more information can visit, call (425) 739-8300 or email engineering@

HealthSource kicks off holiday Toys for Tots drive HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab of Kirkland will donate proceeds from a new charitable health campaign to those in

need this holiday season. For a toy donation to Toys for Tots from Dec. 1-15, new patients at HealthSource of Kirkland will receive a $189 health service screening. All proceeds will benefit Toys for Tots. While the donations will help relieve some of the burdens surrounding those in need, HealthSource CEO and Founder Dr. Chris Tomshack said HealthSource doctors are also looking forward to providing the

“gift of health” throughout their own communities. “We felt it was important to step-up and try and make a difference,” he said. “Not only will each donation help in its own special way, but pain-sufferers can get back to doing the things they love. We thought it was the perfect way to help spread the holiday spirit.” HealthSource’s 19-point, health service screenings help HealthSource doctors track down even the small-

est bits of pain, including those suffering from a wide range of problems such as low back pain, headaches, neck pain, shoulder or arm pain, bulging or herniated discs, leg pain, numbness and more. Even X-Rays will be included if necessary. “Whether or not you feel pain right now, this is a great opportunity to start putting the confidence back in your body and your life,” Dr. Tomshack said. “We’re hoping this effort truly helps

make a difference.” HealthSource of Kirkland is located at 13021 N.E. 85th St., Kirkland. For information, call 425-3362227.

Police see increased car prowls during the holidays The Kirkland Police Department would like to remind Kirkland citizens and visitors that car prowls – theft of property from vehicles - increase in most areas of the city during the holiday season. From October and %% through November, the police department has seen a significant increase in car prowls than what is typically reported in the late summer and early fall. In 2012, the Juanita neighborhood, south Kirkland along Lake Washington Boulevard and the downtown residential areas have seen the most increases in car prowls. However, these thefts are occurring citywide as well as in neighboring cities. Several arrests of active car prowlers have been made and one arrest was the direct result of a Kirkland citizen calling 911 to report suspicious activity near vehicles. If you see any suspicious activity, trust your instinct and report it to police by calling 911. There are several ways citizens can help prevent becoming a victim of car theft: • Park your vehicle in a well lit area whenever possible. • Lock your vehicle whenever and wherever you park it. • Leave no items of any value in plain view to someone looking in your windows such as your purse, wallet, checkbook, cell phone, laptop or tablet computers. Personal information can be obtained from these items and devices, which may subject you to become a victim of identity theft. • Other items such as GPS, holiday gifts, backpacks and duffle bags should be hidden from plain view. • Never leave a Firearm in your vehicle, hidden from view or not. • If you have to leave items in your vehicle, lock them in your trunk and out of view. What to do if you’re a victim of a car prowl: If your car is prowled, whether it is locked or unlocked, call 911. Do not touch anything, as sometimes fingerprints can be

recovered. If you are a victim of identify theft as a result of a car prowl, visit the KPD website for resource information at www. The Kirkland Police Department is conducting the following public education and enforcement activities: • Increased patrols in all neighborhoods and especially where these crimes occur more frequently. • Use of patrol officers in un-marked vehicles to spot thefts and suspicious activity. • Attend neighborhood meetings to raise awareness about car prowls and other crime trends. • Work with citizens and business owners as partners to educate and help prevent car prowls. Contact Neighborhood Resource Officer Audra Weber at or 425-587-3451 for crime prevention information.

Central Way gets new curb extensions for pedestrian safety Central Way between Lake Street and 4th Street has five new curb extensions to help keep a safe distance between pedestrians and drivers. The Police and Public Works Departments are teaming up to inform walkers and motorists of the benefits of the extensions - also known as bump-outs -and safety laws associated with them. Bumpouts improve the safety of pedestrians and drivers by increasing sight distance between them.

Meet James & Paul, charming grey and white striped tabby guys. Tall handsome James is 1 year old and little Paul is 7 months old. We are not sure, but they may be father and son as they have a striking resemblance. They were rescued by Pasado’s Safe Haven after being left abandoned in a house. They are very friendly and loving and didn’t give up their faith in humans even after being abandoned. They love to be petted. James is the more serious boy who watched out for little Paul. Paul is a clown and is extremely curious. He loves to hang out on the back of your chair while you work at the computer. They are closely bonded–they like to wrestle and then pile up and bathe each other. They are both neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on vaccinations. James and Paul will bring great joy to the family who adopts this wonderful pair. Pet of the Month is sponsored by:
