Local businesses offer ceremonies and more for same-sex couples BY RAECHEL DAWSON


he Kirkland community is making sure same-sex couples will have an opportunity to have a wedding this Sunday, instead of simply going to City Hall. Dec. 9 marks the first day marriage licenses, obtained by gay and lesbian couples on Dec. 6, will go into effect. “We’re doing (this) because we worked so hard for Ref. 74 that this is the natural extension,” said Rev. Marian Stewart of Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church. The church is offering group ceremonies at 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday. The wedding package only

costs $25 but includes a champagne toast, cake, a reception with a DJ, two photographs and allows couples up to 20 guests. Stewart thinks the church will reach maximum capacity and couples are still inquiring about the package less than one week before the event. But surprisingly many of the couples do not belong to Northlake Unitarian. “This is in no way a money maker,” Stewart said, who is a lesbian herself. “We are doing a service to the gay community, which has been historically marginalized and this is a service to say, ‘we welcome you and we’ll celebrate with you.’”

But the church is not the only Kirkland organization open to offering LGBT couples an easy, yet meaningful, wedding. VOWS Wedding and Event Planning, a Kirklandbased business, has partnered with the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle and will offer a higher-end experience on Dec. 9-10 from 3-10 p.m. The $1,000 wedding package includes a private ceremony with 20 guests, an officiant, music, photography and decor; and the shared ballroom reception will include a champagne toast and a wedding cake served at the couple’s private table with other food and drink available. The Four Seasons

will provide a special rate for the couple’s hotel room with valet parking as well. Katy Griffiths, owner of VOWS, said it was important to her for same-sex couples to have a wedding that was more special than a courtroom “I do.” “It’s a personal thing for me: my sister’s gay. We put a wedding on for her, and being a wedding planner, I felt robbed at the end of the wedding because she couldn’t sign the marriage license,” Griffiths said of her sister’s wedding before Ref. 74 passed. “It was a frustrating thing, (it) not being recognized by the state.” About four couples have [ more SAME-SEX page 6 ]

A Baskin-Robbins employee claims he was terminated after requesting to have an extra employee by his side for night shifts. The request came after the ice cream shop was robbed on Nov. 28. Kirkland police responded at 7:20 p.m. when employee Jarred Alverio, 19, called 911. A white man with a white bandanna on his face entered the Rose Hill Baskin-Robbins on N.E. 85th

St., drew his gun and told Alverio, who was decorating a cake, to give him the money. Police arrived within five minutes after the man, who wore a black hoodie, black leather jacket and blue jeans, left with $200. Alverio called his manager to get the password for the security camera so that police could obtain the video footage. Within 30 minutes, the manager walked in the door. “She didn’t seem like she was fully connected, but her husband did ask if I was okay,” Alverio said. [ more ROBBERY page 7 ]

Montana man charged in 1996 murder BY RAECHEL DAWSON

A Montana man was charged Monday for the murder of a Kirkland woman that occurred in 1996. Clifford Everell Reed faces second-degree murder charges after allegedly killing Sandi Rae Johnson, a former Kirkland resident, on April 26, 1996. King County detectives from the Cold Case Unit recently arrested the 59-yearold at his home in Victor, Mont. He is being held on $5 million bail and will be extradited to King County Jail. Reed was a co-worker of Johnson’s during her disappearance, and according to charging documents, he left

Washington shortly after she was reported missing. Detectives conducted multiple interviews throughout the investigation and friends of Reed revealed his alleged infatuation with Johnson. “Reed told friends that Sandi was ‘a very special person,’ that they had an active sexual relationship and that they would eventually marry,” according to charging documents. “In reality, Sandi did not return his affections, denied any romantic relationship and told friends Reed needed to leave her alone.” Reed had allegedly loaned Johnson $1,800 for a house payment and often spoke of wanting to find a steady job [ more MURDER page 3 ]

children, which would also act as a birthday gift for her son. Johnson told police Sandi told him she was going to Reed’s that Friday morning to pick them up. Reed’s apartment neighbors contacted police three days after the woman went missing and said they saw a vehicle that matched her car’s description, parked outside of Reed’s apartment on April 26, 1996 and also heard a woman’s voice, but saw Reed drive the vehicle in the direction of the Thriftway shop alone. Reed claimed the car was “some guy’s” who met him for auto-work and said the car was a Subaru. On May 1, court documents say Reed’s neighbor received a call from Reed who asked him to tell police that he and Sandi were just friends and that he was kidding about their sexual relationship. Reed’s roommate told the neighbors that he was at work that Friday but while he was gone Reed had vacuumed, cleaned out the vacuum cleaner and rented a carpet cleaner to clean the carpets. “…This was unusual since Reed had never cleaned the apartment in the years prior to that,” the charging documents state. When detectives questioned Reed 16 years ago, he said he believed Johnson could have committed suicide. “This case shows the true value of a cold case detective squad,” said King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg in a news release. “The families of victims of unsolved murders need to know that we will never give up seeking justice for them.”

so that he could support Johnson and her children if they ever ended up in a serious relationship. However, the suspect denies having any romantic relationship with Johnson. Reed’s friends said he allegedly had a history of referring to women as “sluts and gold diggers.” According to court documents, a close friend of Reed’s told police that he was likely responsible for Johnson’s disappearance and noted Reed was very bitter toward his ex-wives. His friend allegedly told police he said he divorced his second ex-wife “so he wouldn’t have to give her any money” and if she ever tried to get money from him, “he would kill her and she would disappear,” the documents continue. Johnson, who was 28 at the time, was reported missing on April 27, 1996 by her separated husband Ken Johnson after she missed important family events. Washington State Department of Transportation workers later discovered her body on Aug. 25, 2004 on eastbound Highway 410 in Pierce County. Her skeletal remains were identified via dental records and an autopsy by Pierce County Medical Examiner Dr. John Howard revealed her death was by homicide. On April 25, 1996, Johnson worked a double shift at Bowen Scarff Ford in Kent as an administrative coordinator. She chose to work the extra hours so she could take the next day off to prepare for her son’s 5th birthday, which included two parties. As a

result, Johnson arranged for her children to stay overnight with her babysitter. Friday morning, she left a message with her babysitter to pick up her then-2-yearold daughter and 5-year-old son later in the day so she could do some shopping. She also made plans with her friend to have lunch at Cucina Cucina in Bellevue. But she never showed up. “(Her friend) drove to Sandi’s house in Kirkland and noted that her car wasn’t there and she didn’t answer the door. He continued to try to contact Sandi throughout the day but he never heard from her again,” the documents continue. After Johnson failed to pick up her children that night, and later missed her son’s first birthday party, her husband reported her missing. That weekend, employees of the Thriftway Market in Burien noticed Johnson’s green Ford Escort station wagon in the driveway and reported it. The doors were unlocked, the key was in the ignition, her cell phone and papers were in plain view and the seat was all the way back, which “was unusual, considering Johnson was petite,” the documents continue. Reed lived 1.25 miles away from the store at the time of her disappearance. The next day, Johnson’s wallet was located on Rainier Avenue South at the Eagle Hardware store with a missing license, but was identified with other cards. During the police investigation, Reed told detectives that he had ordered custommade stools for Johnson’s

Within that, the fastestgrowing homeless population is adult women over 50 on the Eastside.” However, with the help of The Sophia Way Executive Director Helen Leuzzi, that soon should change. “She truly is making the world a better place,” Olson said. “Helen is very careful not to use the term homeless woman. The reason she doesn’t is because it labels the woman. No one is born a homeless woman. What she uses in its place is women experiencing homelessness. Now, it’s more hopeful. Now, you can get out – with the help of The Sophia Way.” Participating establish-

Kirkland Nourishing Network gives food and thanks On the Monday before Thanksgiving, 64 boxes of food arrived at John Muir Elementary (JME), a Title I school in the Kingsgate neighborhood of Kirkland. More than 50 percent of the students at John Muir are on free or reduced lunch, so for some of the children the four-day break from school is as much a hunger hardship as it is a holiday. “There is often a lack of awareness of how many people are going hungry these days,” said Lynette Apley of the JME PTSA, “particularly in relatively affluent communities like Kirkland. It’s really important for us to address the need at John Muir.” The Kirkland Nourishing Network (KNN) changed this outlook for 20 families of need. KNN is one of five Nourishing Networks created to coalesce the community to unleash untapped energy and resources to address hunger at a local level. These networks bring together all kinds of community stakeholders, including religious organizations, city council members, service groups, high school students, PTSA members, and concerned citizens to connect food resources to those in need. A core tenet for Nourishing Networks is not to supplant the great work going on in nonprofits or in government programs today, but to fill the gap between programs by connecting different stakeholders in new ways to the perennial problems of hunger in our local community. For this Thanksgiving project, KNN worked with JME to approximate the number of families in need and determine the right grocery list to supplement for four days. Each box is designed to supplement the nutritional needs for a family of four for two days. KNN called out for volunteers in the community to deliver a box of groceries to JME. The 64 boxes were sponsored within five days of the request. Sponsors, and emailed to those signed up to receive its newsletter. While the campaign is scheduled to go on through January, according to Olson, “We’ve had a couple of places say they’d like to continue on, and we have no reason to stop.”

included JME PTSA families, individuals, and a large contingent from the Rotary Club of Kirkland. “It was exciting to bring a box to the school today,” said Rotarian Elizabeth Rusnak. “There was a whole room full of boxes just waiting to be picked up by the families. It’s clear we’re really making a difference here in Kirkland.” For more information, contact or go to

4Culture awards funds to help preserve historic structures in annexed neighborhoods The City of Kirkland was one of three cities that 4Culture recently awarded funds to so the cities can participate in King County’s Interlocal Historic Preservation Program. Kirkland will receive $4,300 that will allow the city to team up with the Kirkland Heritage Society to survey the newlyannexed areas of Finn Hill, Kingsgate and North Juanita to look for pockets of older structures. The City of Auburn was also awarded $3,500 to help protect the Japanese American Pioneer Cemetery, and Shoreline was awarded $6,000 to update a mid-1990s inventory. With funding from a pilot program at 4Culture, these projects represent the first round of direct financial support to cities that participate in King County’s Interlocal Historic Preservation Program. Interlocal cities work in partnership with the King County’s Historic Preservation Program staff and Landmarks Commission. The challenge has been to find the resources at the local level to make progress on community preservation issues, and that’s where 4Culture comes in. Documenting aging buildings is a first step toward protecting them. That means survey and inventory – a process that done right can engage volunteers and get people excited about their traditional older neighborhoods.

Toys badly needed for Hopelink’s holiday gift rooms


hen I was a little girl, my younger sister and I wrote a letter to Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. Handwritten in pencil, it said something like this: “Dear Santa, Maybe it’s hard for you to find us because our house is surrounded by trees where it’s dark and our parents leave the porch light off at night. But we’re writing you because we want to send you our address so you know how to find us this year.” Our letter included our address and our wish list of toys that we asked Santa to bring us. We folded the letter, sealed it in an envelope and placed it on the windowsill in our bedroom. On Christmas morning, we saw the letter that was still there and hoped that Santa had read it. We excitedly threw on some clothes, talked about what kind of toys we hoped Santa had brought us and ran downstairs to look for our presents. When we didn’t find a Christmas tree set up, we wondered if maybe Santa had just dropped off the presents. I remember we looked in every corner of the house – including the porch. Nothing. Of course, we didn’t understand at the time that we didn’t receive any presents because our parents didn’t celebrate the holiday for religious reasons. But it saddens me to think that there are thousands of children right here in our community who may go without gifts this year because their parents can’t afford them. Last year, nearly 7,000 children received a new toy from one of Hopelink’s five holiday gift rooms. Carrie Rodriguez




[4] December 7, 2012

Demand is high again this year, but Hopelink officials say that shelves are nearly bare at some centers and toys are badly needed. Donations can be dropped off at any Hopelink Center through Friday, Dec. 14. Centers in Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland and Sno-Valley also are open limited hours on Saturday, Dec. 15 to accept donations. Hopelink’s Kirkland/Northshore Center is located at 11011 120th N.E. and can be reached at 425-889-7880. Toys and gifts are needed for all ages – as well as warm clothes, sweatshirts and sports clothing. Items range from Fischer Price and Baby Einstein toys for tots, to Justin Bieber-themed dolls and cosmetics and Xbox games for teens. Hopelink President and CEO Marilyn MasonPlunkett said the holiday gift rooms provide a few brief moments when kids are able to just be kids. “Oftentimes, the gift a child receives through one of our gift rooms is the only new toy they will be given all year,” she said.

“All of our Hopelink families are working hard every single day toward self-sufficiency, but many of them cannot afford to buy even the smallest toy or gift for their children. Our gift rooms provide a way for them to create their own special moments of joy for the children in their lives.” Hopelink, the largest social services agency serving east and north King County, stocks the rooms with donations from local toy drives, corporate-sponsored giving trees, and individual contributions. The gift rooms are in their 18th year. For center locations and hours, visit: tinyurl. com/d39bqeh or call Hopelink at 425-869-6000. A list of toy and gift suggestions is available here: When you are out running holiday errands, please think about picking up a toy and donating it to Hopelink so that a child will wake up on Christmas morning and have a gift to unwrap.

Nearly struck by inattentive drivers I walk my 5-month-old daughter in her stroller every day, and I was hoping you could help raise awareness for a problem we’ve been having. Several times now we have nearly been struck by drivers as we go through crosswalks (I’m very careful, and only walk with the light). Drivers making left turns especially seem to be either inattentive, or impatient. The first time it happened, we were jogging to hurry through the intersection, and the driver actually sped up to try and beat us. I had to stop dead in my tracks to keep from being hit. It happened again today, and what with the increasingly dark days and poor weather, I’m afraid we’ll keep having these close calls - or worse. If you could please remind drivers to be safe and always yield to pedestrians - or even get the lo-

cal police to step up enforcement, my baby girl and I would be very grateful.

Nourishing Networks helping those in need during school break Kirkland’s Nourishing Network has tapped into Kirkland’s famous generosity to help some of those in need during this Thanksgiving season. Plans are already underway for a similar effort during the long December school break. Motivated by strong success augmenting the Summer Feeding Program, Nourishing Network volunteers organized support for some of the neediest families at a local elementary school over the Thanksgiving break. About 1,500 pounds of food were recently delivered to the school for distribution to the families. The strong response to an initial appeal to friends and acquaintances of the volunteers preempted

the need for a broader community appeal for Thanksgiving. More than 80 slots for large food boxes were subscribed in fewer than five days. The Kirkland Rotary stepped up for more than one-third of the slots in very short order. The Kirkland Firefighters’ Benevolent Association has stepped up to fund 40 boxes. Nearing completion of their first year, Kirkland Nourishing Network is acting to identify gaps in food security and developing short-term fixes while working on long-term solutions. The network is coordinating with other local organizations to ensure that support is spread as broadly as possible and not being duplicated. Nourishing Networks is planning a similar, but much larger effort in Kirkland for the long December school break. For information, visit nourishingnetworks. net/kirkland

The City of Kirkland is a participating member of NORCOM, which is a regional dispatch center located in Bellevue. NORCOM uses a software program called Community Telephone Emergency Notification System, sometimes called Reverse 9-1-1, to send urgent messages to selected phone numbers based on the geographic location of a resident’s phone carrier billing address. The system allows for a city-wide notification or can target specific phone numbers in a designated area. Phone numbers (excluding unlisted numbers) are supplied by phone companies and updated annually. If you have an unlisted phone number, you can register at www. This system has the potential to reach thousands of phone numbers within a fairly short period of time. The Kirkland Police Department has activated the system as a means to reach residents in cases where the public needs to be notified immediately of a situation or their help is needed urgently. A notification may be sent – even during inconvenient hours – to help find a missing adult or child who may have a serious health condition or is in serious danger. In the event of a major disaster and the phone system is working, important public safety messages can be sent out via this system that could advise residents of most damaged areas and evacuation information. This system was utilized recently in an effort to get the public’s help in locating a missing elderly male who suffered from dementia. With the temperatures dropping, the system was activated so that every tool available to the police department was utilized. The gentleman was safely returned later that evening. The system pushes out a pre-recorded message giving emergency instructions to whoever receives the message. All outbound recorded messages will be brief and to the point. A message will be from 30 to 60 seconds in length and will begin with the statement: “This is the Kirkland Police Department with a recorded message.” All outbound messages will include a phone number for residents to call if they have questions about the message or information to provide.

Top Shelf Broiler brings small-town vibe to Kirkland

The Top Shelf Broiler opened last Friday at the location of the former Greek restaurant Olive You. It took one week for owner Melony Halenbeck’s contractor to physically reinvent the interior, but Halenbeck’s number one goal was to reinvent the atmosphere by warming the place up and making people comfortable. “I want to make sure everyone’s getting the service they need,” Halenbeck said. She hopes that by employing high energy, experienced staff who wear a smile, she can accomplish this goal. Aside from good service, Top Shelf Broiler will slowly begin to accumulate old photos of Kirkland and its residents from back in the day. “I would love it if people could donate pictures of fam-

ily and friends (from Kirkland),” she said. “I’d just like to give a little bit of Kirkland back to Kirkland.” Halenbeck, who is from Mountlake Terrace, says she chose to put her restaurant in Kirkland because of its smalltown feel. “Last year, they closed off the streets (for an event) and it reminded me of when I was a kid. (The city) feels safe. It’s big but it still feels small,” Halenbeck recalls. On the night of the Kirkland Christmas tree lighting, staff at Top Shelf Broiler handed out 1,000 samples of their baked truffle macaroni and cheese. She says eight different tables were filled after customers tasted the samples. And one table with six customers all ordered the macaroni. The $65,000 remodel transformed the old interior to a modern dining area that brings elements of a summer

signed up for the package, but it is open to about 10. Griffiths notes out of the four, one mother made a great gesture when she bought the package for her son and his partner. Gina Rayburn’s son Jordan has been with his partner for four years and they have wanted to get married for a long time. “They called me when the law passed and asked me and dad to be witnesses for a marriage license,” said Rayburn, of Carnation. “But then I found out about Katy’s package and thought it would be so cool to have a real wedding. This is a really big deal.” When Rayburn gifted the package to the couple, they were understandably very happy. Rayburn thinks the wedding package is a great concept for couples who have waited a long time for Ref. 74 to pass. But same-sex couples need not rush into marriage for a good deal. Kirkland-based GuGuLy Event Planning is offering 74 percent off a “mini GuGu wedding planning package” that can be used between Jan. 10 to March 31. The package is usually priced at $1,200 but one gay or lesbian couple

could win the package for $312, which provides five hours of service to consult on budget planning, vendor management and confirmation, rehearsal and scheduling. GuGuLy event planner Lydia RapidahJohnson will pick one couple based on a 100-word email to, detailing why that couple deserves the discount. “I’m really glad Ref. 74 passed. I think it’s about love. It’s about two people and how they want to (live) their lives and move forward,” Rapidah-Johnson said. The Heathman Hotel in Kirkland will offer a Right to Unite rate for same-sex couples looking to celebrate their first night as a married couple. The Right to Unite rates include 15 percent off the best available one-night stay or 20 percent off a two-night stay. A bottle of Domaine Chateau Ste. Michelle sparkling wine and a bed with rose petals sprinkled on top will be offered with the rates on Friday, Saturday and Sunday through June 30, 2013. “We believe all couples should be able to enjoy a romantic getaway with their special someone and wanted to be part of this historic celebration,” said Heathman general manager Troy Longwith.

terrace indoors. Halenbeck explains that restaurants with outside dining in downtown Kirkland are often packed full in the summer because people enjoy that atmosphere. Although Top Shelf Broiler just opened, they have already donated Pine and Pesto Chicken Satay to Merrill Gardens’ Kirkland Association for those who volunteered during the tree lighting. This past Wednesday the restaurant participated in the Kirkland Dishcrawl, where local critics were able to try their food and write reviews. A trio dish of dungeness crab cakes with avocado relish and balsamic reduction dressing, black truffle macaroni and cheese and prawns confit- a jumbo prawn on two tomatoes with garlic basil chicken broth was offered during the Dishcrawl. Halenbeck will eventually change Tervelli’s Ultralounge to TS Lounge as a way to connect the two.

Elderly woman injured after trapped in vehicle that veered off road Kirkland firefighters extricated an elderly woman trapped in her vehicle after her car went off the road and into the woods on Wednesday night. Firefighters responded to the one-car accident around 8 or 9 p.m. They found the woman trapped in her ve-

[ ROBBERY from page 1]

But Alverio recalls the first thing she said to him was: “Oh, you need to put the cake back in the refrigerator.” “It seemed she was being more considerate of the cake than what was going on,” Alverio said. Alverio didn’t work Thursday, but knowing that he had to work at 3 p.m. Friday, he called his manager to discuss his work schedule. And in a voicemail he asked to have a coworker with him during his evening/ night shifts. He was alone the night of the robbery. “Since that happened, I am physically and mentally not able to work in that environment. I was by myself,” said Alverio. When the manager called him back, he says she told him she would be unable to accommodate his request because “it’s wintertime and it’s the slow season for an ice cream shop.” It was non-

negotiable to move his shifts to daytime. “She said ‘thank you for your time, thank you for working with me. Your last day was yesterday and you can come in Monday to get your last paycheck. Bring in your uniform,’” Alverio said, noting that he only requested to have an extra employee with him and it wasn’t a demand. “I was very puzzled… She didn’t care.” Ironically, Alverio had received his six-month raise last month. “That’s really sad that a small business can’t accommodate such a small request like that,” said Alverio’s uncle, Pedro Heredia. “This kid is the kind of kid that makes up shifts for other employees. He works as many hours as he can and then they go and shut him down like this.”

Heredia said Alverio commutes an hour-anda-half to Seattle back and forth, in addition to going to college. Sometimes Alverio gets off work as late as 11 p.m. But when the Reporter contacted the manager, Jinny Hong, she said that she wants Alverio to work and he is not fired if he will work the night shifts. She says since Alverio is over 18 years old, she hired him specifically to work night shifts. “I really want to work with him but problem is he doesn’t want to work nighttime shift,” Hong said. “I’m going to do what he wants to do.” Hong attributes the issue to miscommunication because she is not fluent in English. She

says she is troubled by who will fill tomorrow’s night shift. The same BaskinRobbins has been robbed before - a couple of years ago, according to Alverio. And Lt. Mike Murray with Kirkland Police has confirmed the suspect in the recent robbery also matches the description of a suspect in his mid20s who robbed a Texaco gas station down the street on Oct. 27. “Similar description, close to the same area, same type of motive,” Murray said. “I don’t think I’d take the job back. If I were to have that job back, I’d have the night shift by myself and knowing that something like that could happen… It’s not safe.”

Tips for visiting relatives during the holidays example, “do not take or touch things without asking first.” • If your child is shy, remind them that if they get nervous they can always come find you or show them a quiet area of the house that they can hang out in. If your child tends to get overstimulated, you can come up with a plan with them about what steps they can take to calm down and what consequences will be if they become out of control. • As soon as possible after arrival, take a house tour with the hosts. Ask them what the rules are about this and that and relay those rules to your child as you walk around.

• Show them where the bathroom is as well as how to turn on the lights. Many older homes have bathroom light switches outside of the bathroom, which could end up in a frustrating mess when a child cannot find the light to be able to see the toilet! Also, remind yourself to stay on routine with pottying with your little ones. It is very easy for us all to get caught up in the excitement of family and presents and realize too late that you forgot to remind your child to go potty. • If staying overnight, show your children where they will be sleeping and where their belongings will be.

Seventy city and county projects across the state will receive a portion of $130 million in federal funds to repair or replace aging bridges. The City of Kirkland will receive $1.4 million for work on the Forbes Creek bridge at 98th Ave. N.E. The Washington State Department of Transportation selected projects that will replace, remove and/ or repair aging, obsolete and structurally deficient bridges. The funding comes from the Federal Highway Fund. “Some of these bridges are beyond the point of repair and need to be replaced,” said Kathleen Davis, director of Highways and Local Programs with WSDOT. “Many of them, though, can be repaired, which will add many more years of operation to their lifespan.” WSDOT and the Bridge Replacement Advisory Committee received and reviewed 87 applications. The committee is comprised of bridge and engineering professionals, with three members each from Washington cities and counties. The committee’s primary objective is to enhance traveler safety through replacement and rehabilitation of old, worn-out bridges owned by cities and counties.

Juanita basketball program holds annual Hoop Retreat for lady Rebels The Juanita Rebels learned team-building skills at the annual Hoop Retreat on Nov. 17 . CONTRIBUTED they were able to get their grades back in place by leaning on their "Hoop Sisters" who excelled in those subjects and letting them tutor them back to A's and B's. There were honest talks about the athletic, educational and time commitment that has to be made to play at their level. There were some young eyes opened at the tales of struggle and success from the older players. More team building drills

were given by varsity assistant coach Krystal Robinson and junior varsity coach Jay Gahan who had a fun lineup drill that showed some new things about the other players in the squads. There were also full-court scrimmages that showed how talented and aggressive this year's edition of Juanita Lady Hoops is. The Juanita Select organization, run by Sam Adams, handed out new sweatshirts, T-Shirts, socks and new

From select 4th graders to seniors on varsity there was a feeling of pride from all for every player in the program, for the select organizations leadership, and for Lee and his staff.

Bumblebees soccer team wins league championship The Bumblebees, a U10 girls soccer team in the Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association (LWYSA), recently won their league championship after going 15-0 in the season. The Bees completed an undefeated season going 8-0 in league play and 7-0 in a playoff run, capped off with a 6-0 victory against the Purple Dragons on Nov. 10.

The Juanita girls basketball program held their annual Hoop Retreat for all lady Rebels from 4th Grade to varsity on Nov. 17 at the Juanita High Fieldhouse. The varsity and junior varsity players each "adopted" one to three of the younger select players and mentored them throughout the day. The event started off with the younger select players in the stands where they were able to watch head coach Sam Lee and his staff run an intensive onehour practice of the varsity and junior varsity players. They were able to grasp the idea of a "program" being a group of teams all building towards the same goal by emphasizing the things the coach of the top team teaches. During lunch, the varsity and junior varsity players sat the girls down in a team circle and shared their wisdom from being in the program themselves since 5th grade. They talked about being a good teammate, about the "family" of Lady Rebel Hoops and how they are all sisters as a result of their desire to excel at hoops. There were stories of bad grades that kept some of them off-track and how

Habib draws on life experience to serve constituents BY CELINA KAREIVA

Reporter Newspapers

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 Washington 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 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 funding education 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 middle-class 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,

Rep. Cyrus Habib of the 48th District, lost his eyesight at the age of eight to a rare form of childhood cancer. Communicating his disability to constituents was at first difficult for the first-time politician, but he believes it has taught him resilience . CONTRIBUTED 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 op-

portunities 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.”
