14th annual holiday festival draws thousands of people ANDY NYSTROM

More than 10,000 people watched trees light up, listened to music and proudly sported their green blinking lights last Saturday evening at the 14th annual Redmond Lights festival. They hung out near City Hall and at Redmond Town Center and strolled along the 1.3-mile Luminary Trail bordering the Sammamish River. The events featured food, music, visits with Santa and children’s activities, including a carousel. “I love when people come together and form a community — and this is reinforcement of the community every time we gather,” said Mayor John Marchione, who attended his 10th Redmond Lights festival on Saturday. During the afternoon, ng Session! the Redmond Centennial Celebration featured the Redmond Chorale perform-

ing a special song to mark city’s 100 years. The Redmond Historical Society and the Eastside Heritage Center also shared artifacts from the past, and gingerbread houses depicting historic buildings in Redmond were on display in the City Hall lobby. Kevin Roscoe from Cascade Crystal Ice Sculptures carved centennial and Redmond Lights 2012 pieces. Redmond resident Barbara Dixon attended Redmond Lights for the fourth time and noted: “I think it’s pretty awesome. It’s a great turnout. We look forward to it every year.” Deb Wallace of Redmond added that she enjoys seeing all the people and their kids soaking up the experience. “Everybody’s happy and in a good mood. There’s good spirit,” she said. It was Randy Wallace’s first time at Redmond Lights and he was drawn in by one of the huge, lighted trees with

The two trees near City Hall will remain lit through the end of the year. On the music front, Randy noted that the bagpipes and drums were his favorites.

Nine-year-old Kaeli Mungaven said she’d never seen so many lights and summed up her Redmond Lights night: “It’s really pretty and cool. My favorite part was the bagpipes.” [ more lights page 6 ]

The Lake Washington School District (LWSD) lists the enrollment at Rosa Parks Elementary School, located at 22845 N.E. Cedar Park Crescent on Redmond Ridge, as 795. The building’s capacity is 483. Add in the 10 portable classrooms on campus and that number increases significantly to 713 but still remains 82 less than the school’s population. With the track it is currently set on, district officials project Rosa Parks’ enrollment — which includes students from both the Redmond Ridge and Redmond Ridge East communities — to reach as high as 1,024 come the 2015-16 school year. To help counteract this extreme overflow, LWSD has been working with the school, the public and nearby Laura Ingalls Wilder Elementary School, located at 22130 N.E. 133rd St. in Woodinville, to come up with a temporary boundary change that would send some Rosa Parks students to Wilder, which is under capacity with a population of 347 in a building that holds 552.


On Nov. 29, the district held an open house at Evergreen Middle School in Redmond featuring three possible re-boundary solutions: Option A would relocate students in the northwestern portion [ more schools page 6 ]

City’s diverse S.E. Redmond neighborhood plan to be updated The City of Redmond is made up of 10 neighborhoods and each one has its own character that sets it apart from the rest. One of the things that makes Southeast Redmond stand out is the variety of land uses within its boundaries. With Marymoor Park and the end of State Route 520 to the west, the city limits to the south and east and Evans Creek and Union Hill Road to the north, the 1,600acre neighborhood contains business parks, employers in industry, manufacturing and retail and single-family homes. Southeast Redmond is also home to the city’s cemetery, as well as a number of parks and trails. “What’s so interesting about this area is that it’s the most diverse in terms of land use,” said Kim Dietz, a senior planner for the city. This diversity will play a large role in Southeast Redmond’s neighborhood plan update, which is currently underway and like the city’s Comprehensive Plan, looks 20 years into the future. Dietz said the city checks in with each neighborhood annually to see how things are doing and see if there are any minor things that need to be addressed. Every six years, neighborhoods are revisited for a mid-term refinement in which anything brought up during the annual meetings are collected and addressed if possible. And every 12 years, a neighborhood will receive a more robust and involved update. Due to various circumstances, the last time Southeast Redmond’s neighborhood plan was updated was in 1993.


The kick-off series for the neighborhood plan update began in the summer and ended Monday night with a planning event at City Hall’s Bytes Cafe. Attendees — residents, employees and business owners from the community — gained some hands-on planning experience during an exercise that had them working in small teams and using color-

coded LEGO blocks to plan out development in Southeast Redmond. Different colors represented different types of use such as single-family housing, multifamily housing, industrial, manufacturing, retail and business. With everyone’s varied connections to the neighborhood, the exercise was a challenge for most to find something that would please everyone. “We had some problems compromising on what our vision would be,” Michael Schroeder admitted. Schroeder works at Watson Asphalt Paving Company in the neighborhood’s industrial area along Northeast Union Hill Road; his two teammates were residents. He said his main concern about development in Southeast Redmond is preserving the industrial zoning in the neighborhood as that makes up only 1 percent of the acreage in the city. But while Schroeder and his group worked to come to a compromise, he said one thing they did agree on was providing a buffer between the industrial and residential areas. This was a common theme among the teams as they presented their plans to the rest of the group and some of the possible solutions suggested included expanding a current park and adding vegetation.


Natalya Tkach, who lives in the English Cove Townhomes community in Southeast Redmond and works as a realtor, said one thing her clients often look for is walkability within a community. Dietz said walkability is an important factor for people in all neighborhoods. Other things people desire include affordable housing and areas for community gatherings, and more recently, community gardens and zoning for neighborhood commercial. The latter would allow for certain types of commercial uses within a residential area. Redmond City Council President Pat Vache also attended the meeting to hear what people were saying. “I think it’s extremely important to see [ more plan page 4 ]

Shoring collapse at construction site downtown injures four workers Samantha Pak

Four construction workers have sustained minor injuries after a section of shoring collapsed at a construction site in downtown Redmond on Nov. 30. The incident occurred at 11:45 a.m. in the 16400 block of Cleveland Street and is the site of a six-story mixed-use development called Centerpointe. The size of the shoring that fell has not been determined, but Redmond Police Department (RPD) spokesperson Jim Bove said it fell about 30 feet. “I heard just a bunch of noise — metal parts falling,” said a City of Redmond employee who had been working on a street project nearby. The city employee said, from what he heard from others on the scene, the construction workers had been pouring in a concrete floor when the shoring, which supports the floor, fell. He said some of the workers were left with a few bumps and bruises and cuts and scrapes. First responders from the cities of RedServing you since 1986

mond, Woodinville, Bellevue and Kirkland arrived onsite and blocked the streets surrounding the immediate area. Bove said 164th Avenue Northeast, from Redmond Way to Northeast 76th Street, and Cleveland Street, from Redmond Way to 166th Avenue Northeast, were closed for a few hours. The workers who were injured were treated at local hospitals and Bove said fire crews and structural engineers examined the site to figure out whether there was anyone left inside the building, which appeared to be cleared. A firefighter from Bellevue even climbed the ladder of a fire truck to take pictures of the building from above. In addition to the first responders, the area around the construction site was filled with construction workers from the site, workers from surrounding businesses and other passersby, trying to figure out what happened.

The cliff: To jump, or not The U.S. is poised to fall off a “fiscal cliff ” on Jan. 1 unless Democrats and Republicans find a way to avoid automatic spending cuts and tax increases. Yawn. It’s not that we don’t believe — sort of — the doomsayers who tout what a catastrophe this would be to the nation’s economy. It’s just that we don’t think rational people — yes, that means politicians – are so stupid as to let that happen. So, some time — by the end of this year or shortly after the start of 2013 — politicians will force themselves to come up with an answer. When they do, it must contain both spending cuts and tax increases. The U.S. debt now stands at more than $16 trillion. To put that in more personal terms, that’s more than $52,000 on the shoulders of every man, woman and child in this country. But, instead of fixing this, we’ve passed the problem on to future generations. That has to stop. There’s no question that higher taxes will be necessary to help pare down this problem. And the pain needs to start with families whose income is $250,000 and higher. Higher taxes, while unpleasant, won’t have a debilitat-

ing impact on their quality of life. That’s not the case with many in the middle class who have little left over after paying their monthly bills. However, the middle class, too, needs to help fix this mess, perhaps in the form of fewer or more limited deductions. Spending also needs to be reined in. Government trying to be everything to everyone is one reason

why we’re in this fix. It would be best if all this were accomplished before the end of the year. However, given the political stakes, that may be unlikely. If we have to jump, at least we’ll be holding hands.

Former contract liquor agent hurt by Initiative 1183 redmond

December 7, 2012 [5]

In response to the Nov. 23 letter to the Redmond Reporter, “No one can afford a drink in this state,” Brian Hair is greatly misinformed about how I-1183 was written. Blaming the state for today’s liquor prices is easy for the public, but the truth is the author of I-1183 wrote that initiative to add an extra 27 percent tax to the already heavily taxed spirits. The way the tax is divided is 10 percent of that tax is paid by distributor and 17 percent is paid by retailer. If this initiative passed, nobody said the original state tax would come off the price of spirits. The voters voted for an initiative that they obviously did not understand and thought the state would be out of the business. There will always be administration and enforcement and tax collection. I can’t tell you how many times I heard from people that prices would be like California’s. They have a state income tax. Coming from a family involved in politics, I suggest people step away from their busy lives and do some research on what they are voting for. The voters pamphlet spells it all out. I lost my career as a contract liquor agent in a small town that no longer has a liquor store. I’m back in this crazy Seattle area after 23 years. A legacy was lost and closed in my town and people miss it, and so do I. There were 168 small family businesses lost in this state, as well as major trucking companies and all their employees. I miss my friends, even though I grew up in

Redmond and my dad was on City Council here and my mom in the chamber. After being such a good business person for 15 years, I now make $12 an hour. All those taxes were written in I-1183 — next time you vote, do your research! I could not afford 150k to purchase the spirits, beer and wine, so I had to close. Convenience is not great in small towns.

Vicki Warren Mathes, Redmond

From the web: I-1183 part 2 (Also in response to Brian Hair’s letter on I-1183.) If you see a problem, then the problem you have is with the voters of this state — not the stores or the state. The state has always gotten revenue from both liquor taxes and sales. With privatization of the liquor business, the revenue from liquor sales would go down, and that would have had a major impact on already tight budgets that all governments have had to deal with as of late. When the measure I-1183 was presented to voters — and crafted by the private industry, mind you, and not a legislature — it made no deception that instead of the state getting revenue from sales; they would recoup that with more taxes — so the state ends up the same in the end. And, over time, these were to go down. The voters approved a bill that would not bankrupt the state at the expense of people being able to have a cheap drink. If you have a problem, it’s with the voters who did not want their state bankrupt for your sake. When Washington can get as much federal tax subsidies as Texas gets, then you can complain

about how our local governments don’t have a deficit to make up.

Alex Guenser, Redmond

The real hazard of ‘terrorism’ “Ism” denotes that the word it suffixes is an ideology — a belief. What is the ideology of “terrorism”? There is none. Terror is a tactic — a means, not an end. It makes no sense to try to conduct a war against a means of warfare. By adopting the misleading label, “terrorism,” we impair our ability to think clearly. Terror is a tactic of the harshest style of conflict. Terror tactics commonly are used by authoritarian groups that seek to become a government or to coerce a government to change policy. If our government becomes more authoritarian and more controlling in response to terrorprovoking attacks, then we reshape our society to be more like the gangs that use terror tactics. The biggest danger of groups that attack us with terror-provoking tactics is that we will give away our liberty in the quest for security. That exchange is a devil’s bargain. Many famous thinkers have warned that those who give up some liberty to gain security end up with neither. We should abandon the terms “terrorism” and “war on terror.” We should recognize that groups that use terror tactics are conducting war against our society by the harshest of methods. The tactic is evil, but the cause of the problem is the gang that uses the tactic. We should find the members of those groups and destroy them. This is a conflict against politically motivated gangs.

The Redmond United Methodist Bell Choir set up in its usual spot underneath Northeast 85th Street along the Luminary Trail. Larry Rhodes said the group loves playing music in front of the people standing to watch or walking by during the evening. “It’s awesome being underneath here, we feel like trolls sometimes,” he said with a laugh. “Everybody loves to hear bells, especially during Christmas time.” Prior to Mayor Marchione introducing Santa Claus, who counted down to start the tree lightings, Redmond poet laureate emeritus Rebecca Meredith took the stage and read her poem, “Incorporation, Redmond, Washington 1912.” She spoke with the Reporter following her reading: “As I said when I was up there, I lived in this town for 25 years without really taking a good hard look at it. Doing that project that we did that made us walk all around Redmond thinking about what it was like then, what it’s like now … it was wonderful. It was like seeing ghosts in way — you knew that the meat market is now Half Price Books, the bank is now the realty.” Meredith, who now resides in Seattle, was happy to be back in Redmond on its most lit-up night of the year. “It really is about the town coming together and about the kids, but it’s also about not living in the dark,” she said. “It’s so dark here in the winter, and it’s about throwing that light up. It’s an amazing part of Northwest culture to put a light on everything that doesn’t move.”

of the area who live closest to Wilder. It would affect 239 current students and 54 projected students from new development. Option B would move all of Redmond Ridge East to Wilder except neighborhoods off of Eastridge Drive Northeast south of Sheridan Crescent Northeast. This would affect 187 current students and 117 projected students. Option C would move all of Redmond Ridge East to Wilder except for the Deveron neighborhood. This would affect 201 current students and 112 projected students. All three proposals are for three school years, beginning next year, and are available on the district’s website at http:// The re-boundary proposals were drawn up by a committee made up of representatives from Rosa Parks and Wilder, LWSD’s Redmond Learning Community and the district’s main office and included an outside consultant.

JUST SCRATCHING THE SURFACE When it comes to repairing or enhancing the visible surfaces of front teeth, porcelain is the material of choice for veneers. While no other material so closely approximates the look of tooth enamel and is so durable, budgetary considerations may lead to contemplation of alternative types of restoration. If so, “bonding and contouring” is recommended as the most cost-effective choice for covering chips and discoloration, improving shape, and restoring lost enamel. The single-visit process begins with augmenting affected teeth with tooth-colored resin that takes minutes to apply and cure. Once chips and cracks are filled, discoloration is covered, or missing portions of teeth are filled, the dentist artfully shapes and sculpts the resin to create a natural-looking tooth. While porcelain veneers most closely approximate the translucence and subtle color gradation of natural teeth, bonding creates an appearance that is more solid and consistent in color. Whether you need a bonding procedure or veneers, with the proper esthetics treatment, patients receive the benefits of a beautiful new smile.

Julianne Bogaty, a parent whose daughter attends Rosa Parks, said after looking at the different options and discussing them with families from Redmond Ridge and Redmond Ridge East, the overall consensus has been Option C. This would line up with the communities’ desire to maintain neighborhoods. However, she and fellow Rosa Parks parent Beth Zimmerman said they thought not including the Deveron neighborhood in the move to Wilder would be divisive within the neighborhoods, and don’t see why such a small area wouldn’t be included. “It’s so close (to being the whole community),” Zimmerman said. According to a “Frequently Asked Questions” page on the district website, the re-boundary committee did not include Deveron in the move because “29 students are expected to live in the Deveron neighborhood…(which) is within the walking area for Rosa

Parks.” The FAQ stated that if all of Redmond Ridge East moved to Wilder, all 24 of the school’s classrooms, including all four portables, would be in use in the 2015-14 school year. This would leave only one all-day kindergarten class and no flexibility for the district. “If enrollment then came in over projection, the district would have to add a portable at Wilder at a cost of $150,000 to $300,000 (single or double portable),” the page stated. “The committee rejected scenarios that left either school exactly at capacity to ensure flexibility if enrollment came in over projection.” Bogaty and Zimmerman added that they also hope the district is planning ahead at the secondary level as these current elementary school students will eventually become middle schoolers and don’t want to face another overcrowding issue at Evergreen in a few years.


Reith said parents can currently submit comments on the three proposals online or print out the feedback page and turn it in either at Rosa Parks or Wilder. Both options can be found on the district website. Parents have until Dec. 10 to submit their comments. After this, Reith said the re-boundary committee will compile all of the information collected, review it and determine the best solution. She said this could be one of the three proposals as they are now or include adjustments. The committee will then present its final proposal to LWSD Superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce shortly after the holidays, who will then present the proposal to the district’s board of directors. Reith said the board is scheduled to vote on the temporary boundary change on Jan. 28, 2013.

Kathryn Reith, communications director for LWSD, was on the committee and said with whichever solution they implement, some existing students will be “grandfathered” in, meaning they will have the option to stay at Rosa Parks for the 2013-14 school year even if they are outside the boundary. This would apply to current fourthgraders so they may stay at the same school for their final year in el-

ementary school, as well as their siblings. Reith said these grandfathered students would leave Rosa Parks the following school year, either moving on to middle school or moving to Wilder. The number of possible grandfathered students — those who could stay at Rosa Parks — ranges from 37 to 56, depending on which option is implemented. Reith said these numbers are had to pin down because they include fourth-graders and their siblings and families may or may not choose to take advantage of the option to stay at Rosa Parks. She added that the numbers also do not include preschoolers who could be grandfathered in as kindergartners next year. “It’s kind of a moving target,” Reith said about the grandfathering numbers.

Dancing offers Redmond sisters opportunities on Snowflake Lane and in national magazine. Morgan and Emmaline Spencer have been dancing for pretty much all of their lives. The two sisters from Redmond spend hours upon hours each week at the studio, practicing everything from jazz and modern, to tap and ballet, to hip-hop and lyrical. They’ve traveled around the country and worked with a number of big names in the industry including choreographers from the reality show, “So You Think You Can Dance.” Morgan, 16, and Emmaline, 12, both dance at Elizabeth’s Dance Dimensions in Bellevue and now their dance skills are being highlighted outside of the studio.


For the holiday season, Morgan is one of the Jingle Belles Dancers in Bellevue’s Snowflake Lane. “They call us the mini Rockettes,” she said. The Jingle Belles perform each night, and like the Rockettes in New York, the 20-minute routine leans toward jazz and is filled with kick lines and set to a medley of holiday tunes. Morgan and her family have attended Snowflake Lane for several years and she said being a Jingle Belles Dancer has been a fun experience. “Growing up was so fun and now being part of it, I feel so lucky,” she said. “Everyone’s really nice, so accepting and so similar in that they just want to have fun.”

She said as attendees have taken pictures of her performing and with her afterward, it has been great and interesting to be part of someone else’s holiday traditions as past performers have been part of her family’s traditions. Morgan and Emmaline’s mother Karen Spencer agreed, adding that it has been strange seeing complete strangers applauding her daughter for her performance. Morgan, a junior at Eastlake High School in Sammamish, is the youngest dancer in the troupe of six. In addition to balancing school with performing in Snowflake Lane, she also attends dance practice at Elizabeth’s. With this very busy schedule, Morgan said she has received a lot of support from her teachers at school and at the studio, as well as from her family. “As a family, we all had to commit,” Karen said about taking on the hectic schedule. “But it’s been so worth it.” Snowflake Lane began Nov. 23 and will run every night at 7 p.m. through Christmas Eve along the sidewalks of Bellevue Way and Northeast 8th Street in downtown Bellevue. In addition to the Jingle Belles Dancers, the show includes lights, music, dramatic drumming from live toy soldiers and of course, snow. After Christmas comes Celebration Lane, which also runs nightly at 7 p.m. from Dec. 26-31 in the same location. Morgan and the rest of the Jingle Belles Dancers and the live toy soldiers will be performing new festive routines and music with a

New Year’s twist.


Emmaline has been dancing competitively for about seven years and now she is featured in “Discovery Girls Magazine,” a national bimonthly publication for tween girls (ages 8-12). According to its website, the magazine’s goal is to “help girls grow and develop, forming a positive sense of self through solutions that build confidence, resilience and independence.” The magazine highlights girls from different regions of the country each issue and Emmaline is one of 12 girls from Washington profiled in the December/January issue, which is available now. In addition to a miniprofile of each girl highlighting one aspect of her life — for Emmaline, it was her dancing — the magazine also includes photos of the girls in Seattle-area landmarks. The photos were taken during a two-day photo shoot last spring during which the girls met for the first time. “It was an amazing experience and an honor,” Emmaline said. “By the end of the day, we were like 12 best friends.” Karen said half of the photo shoot had the girls dressed in their own clothes and with no professional makeup or hair styling. “They weren’t looking for models,” she said. “They

Redmond boys sport a ‘we versus me’ attitude Andy Nystrom

Senior captains Kyle Sawtell and Nate Swanson know they’ve got to provide a ton of leadership for their teammates this season. Probably more than normal since the Redmond High Mustangs only sport one returning varsity player — Sawtell. Last season, the team finished 10-4 in 4A Kingco play and 16-7 overall, losing to Roosevelt in overtime in the league tournament semifinals. This season, the Mustangs were winless at 0-1 in league and 0-4 overall at press time. “If we make our shots and play good defense, we’ll shock a lot of people,” said Sawtell, a 6-foot-2, four-year varsity player who scored 13 points twice in a pair of losses to Lake Washington and Bothell. “(I’ve learned)

New coach on board as RHS girls look to score success Andy Nystrom

It’s still early in the season, and Redmond High senior captains Lauren Bogard and Ali Jorgensen feel their team can get on track and win a handful of games when all is said and done. “We’ve been working really hard and improving a lot,” said Bogard, a 5-foot-9 forward. “Last year, we fought hard and we played strong, but it was a little tough in the end.

the team who handle the ball.” Redmond High 1991 graduate Brian Lund is on board as coach for his first season with the Mustangs. Last year, he coached Lake Washington High to a 22-7 record and fourth-place finish at the 3A state tournament. Lund tipped off his Redmond basketball career on the fifth-grade select squad and later was a sophomore member of the Mustangs’ state-championship team in ‘89 and a senior baller on the ‘91 second-place state team. “My goal this season is to keep developing the program, competing and improving every kid, every day,” he said. “It’s new kids, a new coach — just trying to get things in their brains. The biggest thing I learned was the ‘we versus me’ attitude.” [ more boys page 9 ]

But we’re coming back and it’s good to play with all of our seniors.” Other seniors include Maddie Erlandson, Claire Monsaas and Nikki Sowder and they are part of the plan to have the Mustangs rebound from a 6-14 overall record last year. At press time, the team was 0-1 in 4A Kingco and 0-2 overall. “Defense is one of our strengths: We really pressure teams and kind of scare them sometimes,” said Jorgensen, a 5-5 point guard. “We always have confidence on the court, (and say) ‘If it is to be, it’s up to me.’ You’ve gotta make yourself something on the court — and we all have to work together.” Offensively so far, 5-11 junior guard/forward Kelsey Dunn scored 19 points in Redmond’s recent loss to Bothell.

December 7, 2012 [9] [ BOYS from page 8] Sawtell, Swanson and the rest of the guys subscribe to that motto. They said they’re all like brothers and they get along on and off the court. “This is a very good place to be. It’s a family,” Sawtell said. Lund noted that 6-1 juniors Conrad Croshaw and Marshall Cherrington have been impressive on both ends of the court thus far to go along with Swanson’s consistent play and Sawtell’s “hyper-athletic” output. The coach added that everyone learns from each other in practice and during games. It’s Sawtell, however, who caught Lund’s eye during a spring-league game when the coach was still with Lake Washington. “I was like, ‘Who is this kid?’” Lund said with a smile. “He was doing everything from posting up to shooting a 3, and I was, ‘Man, I need one of those kids.’ “It’s deceiving when you see him because you think he’s a guard, and next thing you know, he’s posting you up and going to the basket, and he doesn’t feel you there because he’s so strong.”

“In just three weeks, we’ve already got a whole bunch of our fundamentals back and we’re really improving — so it’s awesome to see that,” she said. Gervasoni is in her 20th year of coaching and previously was head coach at the University of Nevada, Reno, and Solano Community College in California and an assistant at Arizona State University. After four years away from the game to start a family, Gervasoni felt the Redmond job was “the right fit for me.” While at the University of Nevada, Reno, Gervasoni recruited Redmond High players, so she’s aware of the passion for basketball in this area. “I’m really impressed with their focus and their attitude and their work ethic,” she said of this year’s squad. “We want to stick together as a team and get better every day we step into the gym — and then good things will happen.” The coach wants the girls to feel her intensity, but also have fun along the way. “Our main goal is that we develop them into good citizens and teach them life lessons,” Gervasoni said, adding that camaraderie and a family bond between the players and coach is also part of the deal. “If we create that atmosphere, the wins will come because we’ll really care about each other,” she said.

mid-20th century. In the ‘60s and ‘70s, profound social, economic and technological changes quickly dissolved that short-lived idyll. Restaurant visits, take-out and TV dinners have since become the norm rather than the exception. There are indications, however, that the old customs are coming back, at least in parts. According to the latest CASA reports, 59 percent of surveyed families said they ate dinner together at least five times a week, a significant increase from 47 percent in 1998.

struggle. Besides appreciation for the value of food and the work that goes into preparing it, there are also many social elements that come into play when families share meals, says Miriam Weinstein, author of “The Surprising Power of Family Meals” (http:// poweroffamilymeals. com/). The dinner table can be the perfect environment where kids learn how to conduct conversations, observe good manners, serve others, listen, solve conflicts and compromise. Of course, there is no guarantee that the simple act of eating at home surrounded by family will save children from developing unhealthy lifestyles or making regrettable choices down the road. It may not make them more virtuous or socially more responsible. But it can lay the groundwork for a lot of things that point them in the right direction.

this trend, it is a development that should be welcomed. Eating together as a family is not just about food and nutrition. It is about civilizing children, about teaching them how to become members of their society and culture, says Robin Fox (http:// www.robinfoxbooks. com), a professor who teaches anthropology at Rutgers University in New Jersey. Food has become such an ubiquitous commodity, so easily and cheaply available, we no longer appreciate its significance, he says. We have to rediscover its importance and its value. Sharing a meal with loved ones should be considered a special event, he says, that can almost take on the form of a ritual or a ceremony, as it was practiced by our ancestors for whom finding food was a constant

Is the traditional family dinner a thing of the past? Is it overvalued as an institution that was once a cornerstone of the American home but has become obsolete with changing times? In today’s households where both parents go to work and kids have busy schedules with school, homework and an array of afternoon activities, finding time for a gathering at the table seems all but impossible. Yet, studies have shown time and again that eating together has multiple benefits for everyone involved, but especially for children,

and not only for nutritional purposes but in many other aspects, as well. According to a number of study reports issued by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (http:// www.casacolumbia. org/templates/Publica tions_Reports.aspx#r8) (CASA), children who eat at least five times a week with their family are at lower risk of developing poor eating habits, weight problems or alcohol and substance dependencies, and tend to perform better academically than their peers who frequently eat alone or away from home. To be sure, the iconic family meal, as for example depicted by the painter Norman Rockwell, came only into American life in the

Holiday traditions: Creating warm memories for your children

When you think back to the holidays of your childhood, what comes to mind? Do you remember the amazing life changing presents wrapped so exquisitely? Or do you remember things such as a holiday bedtime story, hot chocolate with extra whip cream, cutting out paper snowflakes, frosting sugar cookies, lighting candles or maybe mom or dad cooking a holiday meal? I recently asked my elementary students to write a poem about what they enjoy about the holidays. To my surprise, they wrote

about warm chocolate chip cookies for breakfast, going to the mountains to play in the snow and holding a real candle while singing carols. Not a single student wrote about presents. I admit to getting wrapped up in buying presents during this time of year; however this assignment was a reminder of what a simple lens our children view the holidays through and what creates warm memories that have true staying power: traditions. Simple rituals that you can create over the holidays will form family traditions your children will anticipate each year and remember for their lifetime. Traditions strengthen a child’s attachment to the family. The strength of a child’s attachment to parents and family members plays a central role in their emerging

identities. This is that sense of “Who am I?” and “What is my place in the world?” Attachment to parents and family forms an anchor point from which to venture forth and explore the world. Traditions create a lasting identity for one’s family. Holiday traditions can help ease what is a stressful time for parents and children alike. In everyday life, children can feel our stress, as well as their own, which leads to meltdowns and exaggerated emotions. As parents, we offer structure and routine to help them feel calmer. Since the routine is in a state of upheaval during the holidays,

traditions help organize a child’s understanding of how a holiday unfolds, what to expect, what is expected of them and what to look forward to. This helps reduce the ambiguity and thus anxiety. Creating traditions with your child helps them gain a sense of order during such a hectic holiday along with pleasant anticipation. Suggestions for creating your own holiday traditions can be simple: • Read the same holiday story every year or even better – have family members act out a favorite holiday story together. • Holiday pajamas - A new

pair every year. • Find out what the local festivities are around town and choose, as a family, a new one to attend each year • Decorate the home with the family all together. Or put on a favorite cd/audio book and try making some decorations together The theme I took from my student’s holiday poems was that traditions need not be fussy or overly polished to have huge impact on their enjoyment and memory creation. Think about the pleasant memories from your

childhood and then ask your children what they remember about past holidays. This can point you toward the best direction to focus your energy to make your holiday a special time for all, to make traditions that become some sparkly holiday glue that binds your family together.
