Two Issaquah facilities to be honored for energy efficiency BY LINDA BALL ISSAQUAH & SAMMAMISH REPORTER
Typically only three streams — Ebright Creek, Laughing Jacobs Creek and Lewis Creek — have a significant number of fish spawn, but this year a new stream, Pine Lake Creek, started to see heavy numbers. While there’s no way for St. John to pinpoint the exact reason for the surge, he said it could
Using a combination of new technologies, Issaquah’s Fire Station 72, will be rewarded for its innovation and energy efficiency in January, when its creators receive an ASHRAE award, what project manager Brad Liljequist described as the Oscars of engineering. Nationwide, two of the six first-place awards given in 2013 will be for projects in Issaquah. The second is for Swedish Issaquah, the state-ofthe art hospital that opened in 2011. ASHRAE, or the American Society for Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers, recognizes the most energy efficient structures throughout the country each year. The fire station, open since Oct. 2011, is the highest scoring LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum fire station in the world. “This is the most energy efficient fire station in America,” Liljequist said. “There’s been a lot of evolution in the green building process for a number of years.” Liljequist said they were in some pretty exalted company, including the Montreal biodome, which was the site of a 1976 Olympic venue, and is now a conservatory which allows visitors to walk through replicas of four ecosystems found in the Americas. Liljequist also said the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Boulder, Colo. will be honored. Fire station 72 won in the institutional category, and Swedish won in the new health care facilities category.

A STRONG RETURN Lake Sammamish kokanee continue to make record runs up local creeks
BY KEVIN ENDEJAN ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
hen Wally Pereyra says he’s never seen anything like it before, take note.
The Sammamish resident has lived along Ebright Creek — a feeder to Lake Sammamish — just shy of 40 years. In that time, he said he’s never seen so many brightly colored kokanee salmon splash their way up the adjacent waterway to spawn. “This is the biggest run I’ve ever seen, by far,” said Pereyra, noting that in one day volunteers counted 1,100 kokanee in the stream. “I think the total is going to be several thousand.” David St. John, an administrator with King County’s Department of Natural Resources and Parks, shares Pereyra’s enthusiasm, but remains cautiously optimistic. “I never use the words ‘great,’ ‘good,’ ‘well’ or any of that, I just say we’re doing better because there is a long way for us to go,” he said. “This is a good sign. We think something good is happening, something is going right.” St. John said the first signal things were different this year came with an early run. The
“This is the biggest run I’ve ever seen, by far.” – Wally Pereyra kokanee, which typically start spawning in mid- to late-November, began to run the last week of October — the earliest he’s ever seen in 15 years of monitoring the species. And it wasn’t just a few kokanee here or there — the feeder streams have remained thick with the bright red fish. “There really hasn’t been a drop off,” St. John said.

Local police on extra DUI alert for holidays
ENERGY CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
The new hospital includes an emergency department, operating rooms, imaging, cardiology and in-patient rooms. Through innovative design, the building was able to achieve a 54 percent energy savings compared to a baseline energy use intensity for a typical hospital. Efficiency measures include a central plant heat recovery system, variable air volume air systems, low velocity ductwork, high efficiency air handling units and air conditioners, increased insulation and low E windows. In order to maintain the required pressure relationships mandated in hospitals for infection control, the building utilizes return and exhaust air tracking terminal units and venture valves in its ventilation system. Carbon emissions for the building are 47 percent lower than a baseline building, reducing 6,513 tons of carbon emissions each year. Additionally, the plumbing fixtures, selected to provide both water and energy savings, save 30 percent and 50 percent of the water used by standard fixtures. To make the fire station so incredibly energy efficient, ground source heat pumps were used. A series of bore holes were dug under what is now the driveway, with water circulating through them. The ground temperature, which remains about 50 degrees, pumps water into the building and through a thermal exchange. Heat pumps in the building act as the furnace. The heating system is in-floor radiant heating inside the

Exterior insulation also was added, in addition to normal insulation in the walls. The sleeping rooms for the firefighters are equipped with individual temperature controls in each private room. This allows firefighters access to cooling on demand when they need to recover after an emergency call, or more heat if needed. The building also utilizes solar panels on the roof to generate electricity, and separate solar panels for hot water which are boosted by heat pumps. Chief of maintenance at fire station 73, Kelly Refvem, said PSE just sent them a check for $1,980, for the energy the station produced from the solar panels. The station also has a rainwater cistern that holds 8,900 gallons used for washing clothes, flushing toilets and spraying down trucks. Station 72 uses about 30 percent of station 73 in the Issaquah Highlands —the first LEED certified fire station in the U.S. “We believe this was cost neutral to achieve this level of efficiency,” Liljequist said.
Liljequist said principal and lead mechanical engineer with Ecotope, Jonathan Heller, was the mechanical engineer on the project. The award for the fire station will be given to Ecotope Inc. – a Seattle firm dedicated to energy efficiency and sustainability — and the City of Issaquah on Jan. 26, 2013 at ASHRAE’s winter conference in Dallas. Accepting the award for Swedish will be Lee Brei, director of facilities for Swedish, and Dick Moeller principal with CDI, a design and engineering firm. Designing the fire station was a collaborative effort between Ecotope Inc., TCA Architecture and Planning, the City of Issaquah and Eastside Fire and Rescue. The final cost of the station was about $6.6 million, which was $1.4 million under the original estimate. The station was paid for by a variety of sources, including a voter-approved bond, District 10, city capital funding and fire mitigation funds.
Jessica Sullivan, administrative sergeant for the Sammamish police, said the city is fortunate to have a full-time dedicated DUI officer, and the department will be on the lookout for impaired drivers throughout the holiday party season. Sullivan said the officer also has the drug recognition expert designation. With initiative 502 passing in the Nov. election, as of Dec. 6 it will be legal to possess up to an ounce of marijuana for one’s personal use. Sullivan said the driving behavior is similar in the case of an individual who has had too much to drink, as to one who is under the influence of cannabis or other drugs. “We normally look for the inability for them to maintain their lane, failure to use turn signals, their speed (either too slow or too fast), wide turns, sharp turns or bouncing over curbs,” she said. She also mentioned texting while driving, another serious faux-pas which can lead to erratic driving. She said a driver who is multi-tasking will often correct immediately, and not repeat the offending action. If you are pulled over and suspected of drinking, you will most likely be subjected to a breath test. With suspicion of cannabis, the officer will take you to a hospital for a blood draw to determine THC concentration.
According to Washington code, any person who operates a motor vehicle within the state is deemed to have given consent for these tests. If at the time of the arrest, the arresting officer has reasonable grounds to believe the person had been driving or was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of liquor or any drug, if they don’t comply with the tests, they could have their license suspended. Issaquah traffic officer John Linder said Issaquah doesn’t have a DRE, but on Friday the IPD is hosting officers from other agencies to patrol Issaquah as part of King County Target Zero Task Force, which began in 1988. The goal of Target Zero is have no traffic deaths in King County by the year 2030. Linder said IPD will have extra patrols on Christmas and New Year’s. Linder said there have been no DUI fatalities in Issaquah this year. According to the King County web site, from 2006 to 2010, 224 people died in impaired driver-involved crashes in King County, accounting for 46 percent of all fatal traffic crashes for that period, and an additional 641 people were seriously injured.

SINKING FEELING Pontoon problems on SR 520 bridge need more than assurances
recent report by KOMO-TV Problem Solvers paints a disturbing picture of work on the new 520 bridge. The station cited a former inspector as saying the new 520 Bridge is “a disaster waiting to happen.” The problem, the former inspector said, is the shoddy work on the first pontoons that were built in Aberdeen. KOMO also mentioned a scathing internal audit that it says shows the state failed to hold contractor Kiewit accountable. Why do we suddenly have a sinking feeling? The inspector told KOMO that every day he saw iron-workers mis-placing or using the wrong-sized rebar – the structural steel that provides the strength and framework of the pontoons. He’s quoted as saying “it’s the worst I’ve been on - for inferior work.” Recent news stories describe and photos illustrate that water is leaking in the pontoons. The state says that the pontoons and bridge won’t be accepted unless and until it is safe. Kiewit says it has “a rigorous and redundant quality management system.” The question remains, thought, why were pontoons leaking in the first place, and even more, why does that appear to be continuing? Assurances of a well-built floating bridge are one thing. Actual water-tight pontoons are another. Given what this bridge will cost, we deserve the latter.
IRRESPONSIBLE POSITION The issue in Congress over how to balance the budget – higher taxes, cuts in spending – needs advocates from both sides to find some answer in the middle. Either option alone won’t work. That’s why is it irresponsible and insulting for conservative D.C. lobbyist Grover Norquist to insist that Republicans who signed a “pledge” – that dates to 1986 – to oppose all tax increases and hold to that position. It’s not up to an unelected lobbyist to say what’s best for the country. The job is up to those we elect to Congress – and only those. – Craig Groshart, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter ISSAQUAH | SAMMAMISH

Remain involved in government BY BRAD TOFT
It’s been just weeks since the 2012 elections, and I imagine many of you welcome the reprieve from campaign advertising. You may have been disappointed regarding the ballot box results. However, I encourage you accept the voice of the people and to become more engaged in the process. Washington elected to retain singleparty rule for at least another term. It remains to be seen, though, if our new elected leaders will change course from a path that brought us declining quality of Brad Toft public education and fiscal uncertainty. In representative government, we must articulate the citizens’ priorities to our leaders. That task knows no rest, both in and out of election season. Leadership in Olympia must steer another course and place governing ahead of games. Rather than managing Washington’s citizens, the new governor and Legislature should strive to serve the people. Private enterprise must have the confidence to invest and hire employees, and it’s time for elected leaders to take this seriously. That must be immediately followed by fully-funding our

public education system with the already-existing dollars in the budget. While speaking of education, I am pleased that public education leaders will be charged with bringing more flexibility to our system with the implementation of charter schools. Finally, the Legislature must honor the voters’ wishes in requiring a two-thirds majority to raise taxes. This necessitates bi-partisan support for future budgets and requires government to live within its means. If lawmakers in Olympia try an end-run, we must hold them accountable. In the aftermath of an election like 2012, it would be easy for cynicism to set it. It has been said that cynicism is full of naïve disappointments that cause people to disengage from government and politics. But we can ill afford the citizenry’s decoupling from its government. There are still millions of people in Washington state who believe as you do. So now is not the time to succumb to doubt. Rather, it is time to remain both involved and informed so that you can speak with a reasoned voice. I am committed to work shoulder to shoulder with those who choose this route. I hope you are, too.

Sammamish youth honored as one of nation’s brightest
Kartik Iyer, an International Community School student from Sammamish, was recently honored as one of the brightest middle school students worldwide at a national medal ceremony sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth. The Center honored Kartik, one of 40,800 participants in the 2012 CTY Talent Search, for his exceptional performance as a middle school student on the college SAT last spring. Among the more than 900 U.S. and international middle school students invited to the ceremony on the Johns Hopkins University campus, all earned exceptionally high scores that place them well within the top one-half of one percent academically of all Kartik Iyer same-grade students. The honored students were selected because they were the top students among the 13,350 seventh and eighth graders testing last year through CTY. Past participants in the CTY Talent Search include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Google cofounder Sergey Brin, and performer Lady Gaga. The International Community School is located in Kirkland.
No ferry name for Sammamish Sammamish fell short in its attempt to have a state ferry named after it. The Washington Transportation Commission decided earlier this month that it will name its two new 144-car ferries the Samish and the Tokitae. The City of Sammamish threw its name in the hat in September in hopes that it could join Issaquah in the list of ferries named after cities. The Samish tribe is located near Anacortes
and the name translates to “giving people.” Tokitae is a greeting that means, “nice day, pretty colors.” It is also the original name of an orca better known as Lolita captured near Penn Cove on Whidbey Island in the in 1970s and moved to Miami’s Sequarium. Other names that were turned down were Cowlitz, Hoquiam, Muckleshoot and Ivar Haglund, the founder of Ivar’s seafood chain.
Police reports from Issaquah and Sammamish By KEVIN ENDEJAN
his friend, allegedly saying, “you need to come pick me up quick, this guy is questioning me.” The witness called police because there had been a number of mail thefts in the neighborhood. The owner of the vehicle was contacted and said he would speak to his son about the incident.
The following information was compiled from City of Sammamish police reports:
An elderly Sammamish woman called police Nov. 24 concerned that a caretaker stole $1,800 in jewelry from her home. The woman said she was missing three items, including a 18-inch gold necklace with a pearl and diamond valued at $1,200. Police found a possible lead on the items at a pawn shop in Burien. The incident is still under investigation.
DARK SIDE? A 90-year-old Sammamish woman called police Nov. 23 concerned about someone in the street with a flashlight in front of her home. When police arrived they didn’t find anyone suspicious, just neighbors talking in the driveway getting ready to leave. The caller was concerned about her neighbor, saying he was from the “dark side” and is a bad guy.
DRUNK HITS TREE A 21-year-old Sammamish man was arrested for DUI Nov. 15 after crashing through a front yard and into a tree. The owner of the home in the 2600 block of Southeast 22nd Way called police after he heard the collision shortly after 4 a.m. Police asked the man, who blew a .301, if he knew what that meant. He responded with, “Yeah, it means my car crashed into a tree.”
BIG HAUL A 30-year-old Issaquah man was arrested Nov. 20 for possessing a stolen excavator. The man was spotted pulling into a parking lot near a Sammamish fast food restaurant by the owner of the excavator. The owner, a Mount Vernon man, began following the truck pulling the equipment when he recognized his machine on the road. The excavator, valued at $50,000, was reported missing on July 11.
CHAIRS NABBED A Sammamish woman called police Nov. 20 to report someone stole four chairs off her dock in the 2700 block of 222nd Avenue Northeast. The adirondack-style chairs were valued at $450.
VANDALISM A City of Sammamish employee called police Nov. 19 to report damage to nine light poles in the Lower Commons Park. All of the poles had the electrical covers knocked off. One of the poles also had a light bulb broken out with what looked like a rock. In all, damage was estimated at $900.
PIZZA TOSS Two Sammamish residents called police Nov. 17 to report someone used slices of pizza to vandalize their homes located in the 2000 block of 211th Place Southeast. Pieces of pie were smeared across the front doors and the garage doors of the homes, and a Costco pizza box was found in one of the driveways. The sauce was washed off and no permanent damage was done.
A person driving in the 2100 block of Northeast 42nd Street in Sammamish called police Nov. 20 to report a vehicle parked alongside the road with a broken window and papers tossed all over. Police contacted the owner upon arrival, who said nothing was taken and he had no idea how the rear drivers-side window had been broken.
SUSPICIOUS A Sammamish man called police Nov. 13 after watching a vehicle drop a young man off in a cul de sac in the 24000 block of Northeast 27th Place, then leave. The man said he saw the 17-year-old acting suspicious around mailboxes and asked him what he was doing. The boy said that his friend dropped him off in the wrong neighborhood and immediately called

Digging British Columbia’s legendary mother lode.
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 IT.com

Students get lowdown on scissor lifts BY SAMANTHA PAK REPORTER NEWSPAPERS
Trying to reach objects up high is always a challenge, but it can be particularly difficult for seniors. To help with this problem, a group of fourth- and fifth-graders from Cascade Ridge Elementary School in Sammamish are developing a prototype for what they are calling the Super Stable Lift. This compact scissor lift would be equipped with a platform for seniors to stand on or roll a wheelchair onto and would rise up to allow them to complete the highreaching task at hand. Developing the lift is part of an upcoming FIRST LEGO League robotics competition in December, part of which includes a research project addressing a problem to do with a specific theme. This year’s theme is “Senior Solutions,” aimed at the challenges that senior citizens face in accomplishing daily tasks. And while the team — the Robot Gladiators — are not building a working model, they will do a presentation for judges explaining their product. As part of their research, the team visited Terex Corporation/Genie Industries in Redmond on Nov. 7 to learn more about scissor lifts. Genie specializes in building work lifts and platforms and the eight youngsters spent the afternoon with engineers who shared information about how their equipment works and what techniques the students could use for their
Cascade Ridge students get a close-up look at how a scissor lift works. SAMANTHA PAK, REPORTER NEWSPAPERS
Super Stable Lift. “They’ve done their homework,” said Genie engineer Keith Seiler about the questions and comments the Gladiators had for them. The questions ranged from the general about how scissor lifts work and what makes them safe to the very specific, such as why Genie uses a hydraulic system to operate its lifts rather than a pneumatic system. Gwendoly Espe, another Genie engineer, also met with the Gladiators and was equally impressed with the students. “They were really smart,” she said. “They’ll ask you the questions without any filter at all and that’s really refreshing.” During their visit to Genie, the Gladiators — accompanied by parent coaches Linda Warner and Tracy Myers — built their own scissor boards and also
had the opportunity to get up close and personal with a number of the company’s products and even try their hands at operating a scissor lift. The latter activity was met with great enthusiasm and excitement. Warner said in addition to the research project, teams at the LEGO competition also must build and program a LEGO robot to complete a number of tasks on a competition mat onsite. The final part of the competition is displaying LEGO’s core values such as good sportsmanship, cooperation, respectfulness and teamwork. The Gladiators are one of two teams from Cascade Ridge who are part of the school’s robotics club and
will be participating in the December competition. The club is in its second year and is made up of fourthand fifth-graders. The club is a mix of firsttime and returning members such as fifth-grader Harry Myers, the student to ask the hydraulic-versuspneumatic question. Harry said he joined the club because he and his brother like using electronics and figuring out how they work. He enjoys learning about programming the robots, but his favorite part has been getting to build with LEGO and working with other kids.

Issaquah’s Audrey Thomas earned 4A KingCo player of the year honors for the second consecutive season to lead a large group from Issaquah and Sammamish. Thomas helped her squad to the 4A state championship game, a 1-0 loss to Skyline, and led the Eagles in goals and total points in 2012. Eastlake did not make the postseason, but was named Academic State Champions in 4A girls soccer with a team grade point average of 3.708.

Sammamish football teams vie for championships in 3A, 4A games Eastside Catholic rolls over University into 3A championship game
Skyline erases deficit, heads back for chance at another 4A championship
Three Henry Jarvis scores and a defense that allowed only seven points in the second half helped Eastside Catholic to a 42-21 win over University in the 3A state semi-finals and their first trip in school history to the state championship game. Senior quarterback Trey Reynolds had touchdowns on the ground and through the air for the Crusaders, which will face four-time defending champ Bellevue at 7 p.m. on Friday in the Tacoma Dome.
Camas put an early scare in Skyline, taking a 14-0 lead in their 4A state semi-final game, but it was the Spartans that rebounded for a 51-28 win behind four Max Browne touchdown passes and two more from Matt Sinatro. Browne pulled his team to within seven when he hit Nic Sblendorio in the first quarter and helped his team rattle off 44 consecutive points with another scoring strike Austin Bui and one to Cedric Cooper. Bellarmine Prep survived Auburn 21-19 in the other semi-final and will be the final team standing between a second straight Skyline championship at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday in the Tacoma Dome.

Sammamish approves budget for 2013-14
kokanee CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
be due to ideal lake conditions or the heavy rains that came at the end of October. He also has a hunch that the increase has a lot to do with the Issaquah Hatchery’s supplementation program — a project that started four years ago to prevent extinction of the native land-locked fish. “If they came back this year, they would have been in the lake for three years and they’re usually four-year fish,” said St. John, noting the goal is to keep the hatchery program running for up to 12 years until the fish population has stabilized. Whatever the cause of this fall’s fish explosion, St. John said the timing couldn’t have been better. Pereyra recently fixed a major blockage on Ebright Creek, removing a 70-yearold cement culvert. The structure only had a 20-inch pipe running through it, allowing for only a lucky few fish to make it through and get full use of the creek. This past summer, Pereyra had the culvert taken out, replacing it with a brand new 40,000-pound structure that allows the fish to comfortably swim upstream. Pereyra fully funded
No new property taxes for fourth straight year BY Kevin endejan Issaquah/Sammamish Reporter
Months of deliberation and discussion ended Nov. 19 as the City of Sammamish approved its 2013-14 biennial budget. With councilman John Curley absent, the City Council unanimously approved the two-year budget, totaling just over $107.8 million. “I think what we’ve ended up with is a very good budget,” councilman Tom Vance said. “I appreciate all the hard work.” While everyone agreed to approve the city’s financial plan, some still had reservations. Councilman Romiro Valderrama was particularly worried about the $6.8 million set aside for parks over the next two years — placing it as the second highest line item behind police and fire services. “I am very concerned that we live within our means, in particular in the area of the parks,” he said. “I love the parks, I’m a heavy user of them, but it has to be sustainable and the process that we’re undergoing now I don’t think is fair to our citizens because if we con-
“We have to be able to look at some cuts coming into play, we have to live within our means here.” – Councilman Romiro Valderrama tinue this process I don’t believe we will be able to sustain and maintain the parks like we’re used to.” Valderrama also voiced concern about the hiring of new staff — something he said directly contradicts the state of the economy and practices of other nearby cities. “We have to be able to look at some cuts coming into play, we have to live within our means here,” he said, referencing future budget planning. Deputy Mayor John James was in full support of the budget, but noted that if the Community and Aquatic Center gains approval the city’s healthy reserve budget will take a hit. “I think this is a budget that works for now, but the next budget cycle, I think the council has
some harder work to do, especially if we’re not raising revenue at the same time we’re increasing expenses,” James said. For the fourth consecutive year, the council also voted to not add a 1 percent property tax increase to residents. State law allows the city to “bank” the 1 percent increase for each year it’s not taken. By not increasing the levy, the city will bank more than $186,000 in 2013 for future levies. It will move the four-year total of banked funds to $718,600.
Wally Pereyra stands in front of the new 40,000 pound culvert he had installed over Ebright Creek this past summer. kevin endejan, issaquah & Sammamish Reporter the project, he estimated at $175,000. “When the kokanee started coming up, they didn’t even stop and wave a fin or anything,” he said, laughing. In an effort to keep the fish population growing, Pereyra recently purchased property adjacent to his that includes Zaccuse Creek — another stream he hopes can be reintroduced to kokanee. “I just think it’s such a wonderful asset to the city of Sammamish to have these
fish coming back like this,” he said. Numbers from this year’s Lake Sammamish kokanee run won’t be official until April, according to St. John. There’s little question, however, they will be the largest returns seen in quite some time — something he said wouldn’t be possible without neighbors of the surrounding creeks like Pereyra. “I don’t think we could do this without folks from the community,” St. John said. “I don’t think it’s sustainable.”
