Spreading some Christmas cheer

Schools partner with first-response teams to keep students safe Samantha Pak

As the country and world mourn the losses of life from last Friday’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, questions have been raised about why and how this happened. Debates have been sparked concerning a number of topics including gun control and mental health. Concerns have also been raised about school security and safety. In response, school districts nationwide are looking at their emergency procedures to make sure what they have in place is the best it can be. In Redmond, it’s no different. Kathryn Reith, director of communications for Lake Washington School District (LWSD), said they will be taking another look at their emergency plans to make sure they are doing all they can to keep students safe. She said school safety is a regular conversation among principals and teachers.

these things,” she said. Throughout LWSD, schools practice emergency drills — ranging from fire and earthquake drills to evacuation and lockdown drills — at least once a month. Belshaw said all this practice allows staff to debrief and make changes and enhancements where needed, adding that her staff have told her that they feel better and more relaxed after all the practice because they feel more prepared to do what they need to in the case of emergency. Belshaw said this is why it is important to practice. “If we practice it, I really believe they will go on autopilot,” she said about staff and students alike. Belshaw cited the Nisqually earthquake that shook the area in 2001 as an example.

Energy Savings with Energy

Q/A | with


How did SUNDANCE Energy get started? Back in 1981 we primarily did solar water heating and pool heating. We did that until 1985 when the federal government stopped offering a tax credit for installing solar energy systems. At that point we had to reinvent ourselves. We wanted to keep the same theme, which was saving people money and offering environmental solutions for the home. What made the most sense to our business was natural gas and it’s sustained our business since. We’ve been around for over 30 years now.


How does your company promote the use of clean energy? When we burn coal, oil, diesel, wood – all of these things are bad for air quality. They put pollution in the air and cause health problems for our families. Natural gas is a clean burning fuel source. The beauty of burning natural gas is it produces water, heat and carbon dioxide which has no particulate pollution in it. Natural gas fireplaces are the most romantic and clean way to heat your home and provide comfortable heat in a power outage. Heating our homes is an essential

What’s good for the environment is good for your wallet!

need for everyone so we really believe the most environmentally friendly way over the years has been natural gas or high efficiency heat pumps. The new product on the market is ductless heat pumps. They do use electricity but because of its efficiency, they are probably the most environmentally sound way to heat. It also makes a lot of sense financially as it is 3 times more efficient than electric heat and 5 times more efficient than oil or propane heat and half the cost of a high efficiency gas furnace. Homeowners can find substantial savings on their heating. Whenever we do something that’s really good for the environment, it tends to be really good financially as well.


Why is your business important for the Puget Sound? The largest energy cost is heating. People need reliable, comfortable heat that doesn’t cost them an arm and a leg. On a cold winter, people end up spending too much money and sometimes unfortunately, they start being uncomfortable in their homes. We want to make sure that people can afford to be comfortable and not too cold.


How does the US compare to other countries in ductless heat pump installation? In 2009, Japan installed 7 million ductless heat pumps, China installed 16 million units, and Europe installed 7 million units. Comparably, the U.S. only had 300,000 new installations. We have traditionally used horribly inefficient heating systems. Puget Sound Energy, Seattle City Lights and Snohomish County PUD offer their largest rebates as they recognized ductless heat pumps


are the best way to heat and cool your home. They are easy to install and make your home the perfect climate.


Can you tell us about some of the awards and recognition that SUNDANCE Energy has received? We are one of only a few companies that have been awarded the Puget Sound Energy’s Platinum Performance Award for Customer Service. We’ve gotten Angie’s List super Service Award for the last five years and have gotten Best of Northshore with the Bothell/Kenmore Reporter every year they held the contest. We’re one of the only Mitsubishi Top Diamond Dealers, which allows us to give people a better warranty on their products. In addition, we’re one of the original Rheem Top Contractors in the state and we’ve been featured on New Day Northwest on King 5 three times.


What are the costs for your services?

We’re very competitive. When you consider value, which is the quality of the product and service, we feel we are unmatched. In fact we’re so confident, we will match the price of any product we supply. Most of our products pay for themselves with the energy they save and start putting money into our customer’s pockets.


What areas do you serve?

We serve Snohomish and King Counties from our Bothell location and we also serve Skagit County from our Mount Vernon location.

“We really want to make our homeowners more comfortable in their homes and improve their quality of life. We want to do this in the most environmentally friendly way possible and save them some money in Curtis Dahl, SUNDANCE Energy the process.”

Worcester Wreath Company in Maine, arranged to have their surplus of wreaths at the end of the holiday season placed at grave sites at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C. to honor the country’s veterans. The program continued and expanded to include cemeteries throughout the country. “It just gradually really started spreading,” Riddell said, adding that about 500 cemeteries participated in the nationwide event this year. During the ceremony, seven wreaths were placed around the flagpole to represent each branch of the military and 41 wreaths were placed on grave sites throughout the cemetery. “It was really wonderful to see all of those wreaths laid on those grave sites,” Riddell said. She said WAA is meant to honor veterans, to “remember what they did for our country and to teach our children.” Redmond Mayor John Marchione spoke at the event at Cedar Lawns, discussing the veterans buried in Redmond and touching on the city’s centennial. In addition, Overlake School

In addition to providing volunteers for the WAA event, VFW Post 2995 also held an event at the VFW Foley Hall in Redmond to present World War II veteran Wilbur Keith Atherton with the Quilt of Valor. In an email, VFW senior Arlene Steele wrote that the Quilt of Valor is a wartime quilt made to honor veterans wounded during wartime. “It is a tangible way to say, ‘Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor for our country,’” Steele wrote. “A Quilt of Valor is not a charity quilt nor a service quilt.

is a beautifully made, pieced and quilted wartime quilt. It is also made by wartime quilters.” Atherton was born June 26, 1927. He joined the Navy Seabees when he was 17, serving in WWII from March 1945 to June 1946. Atherton served as a merchant mate in Okinawa, Japan. He joined the U.S. Army when he was 18 in September 1946, serving as a corporal for three years. In 1949, Atherton transferred to the Army Engineers until 1952. He took a few years off and then joined the Washington Nation Guard in 1956. He was sent to training as a communications specialist at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. After 12 years of service in the National Guard, Atherton retired as a master sergeant. During his service, Atherton received three Bronze Stars with Valor. After retiring from the service, he went to work for Caterpillar Tractor Dealers in Yakima, where he retired again after 18 years in 1968. Keith married his wife Teresa in June of 1952. Together, they have seven children and 27 grandchildren. Three of their sons joined the Army and one grandson, who served in Iraq and was wounded in the line of duty. Atherton joined the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) on Aug. 31, 1999 and is a life member of post 6785 Kent Meridian. He currently lives with his daughter and son-in-law in Cottage Lake and is learning to play the fiddle to keep him busy. After Atherton’s presentation, the VFW held a ceremony to honor the Patriots Pen and the Voice of Democracy scholarship winners to grade school children in the area, who wrote essays about the United States.

Last week’s poll results: “Do you approve of the city’s budget?”

Not again. Will the madness ever end? I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears. It’s happened again. Those were my thoughts last Friday morning as I watched in horror at my television when news spread of the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. What is going on in our world? Why do people take guns to a school — or anywhere for that matter — and kill innocent people? I understand that people have guns for protection in this mixed-up world, but this is ludicrous that someone would choose to do something so horrific as to gun down children and adults who are there to protect them from harm and lead them along the path to success in life. I think back to all the times I was in school as a kid, and even nowadays when I visit schools to cover a story. A positive story about how good things are happening in our schools. I always felt safe in the halls, library, classroom and playground when I was younger. Andy Nystrom


Question of the week:

December 21, 2012 [5]




As an adult, especially in the years following the Columbine killings, I’m often a bit apprehensive walking around school campuses. I’m there to do my job and interview people for stories, but I can’t help myself from peeking around the place just to make sure everything looks OK. Safe. We’ve seen these Newtown and Columbine types of tragedies all too often — most not as massive, but always tragic — and I’m sure that we all wonder what we’d do if we were in the position of the victims

at those schools. Would we go after the shooter? Close a door and protect ourselves and others? Shield others from shots? I think we would all do what was in our hearts in order to make the situation end and keep others out of harm’s way. We never think that this will actually happen to us or our loved ones, but we’ve got to watch out for each other every day. Keep things around us as safe as possible. Have faith that everything will be OK.

Congress must reinstate the assault weapons ban in wake of school shooting We live in a politically polarized and divisive time. But surely, in the wake of the horrific school shooting in Connecticut that killed 20 children and six adults, we can come together to force our leaders to ban all semi-automatic assault weapons and highcapacity ammunition magazines. We can no longer simply grieve from the sidelines — after the fact — for far-away victims. We fool ourselves by thinking that tragedies like the one that visited Sandy Hook Elementary only happen “somewhere else.” Congress must reinstate the assault weapons ban — the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act of 1994 — which was allowed to expire in 2004. We can no longer allow the National Rifle Association (NRA) or other special interests to use political extortion and pressure tactics to prevent us from enacting commonsense legislation. I’m not naïve. Nothing can keep us absolutely safe. But we must do what we can to minimize the likelihood that weapons designed solely for mass killing are no longer available. And let’s be clear: few are advocating for

a ban on handguns or hunting weapons. The slippery slope argument that the NRA espouses is a canard used to prevent reasonable legislation that even numerous NRA members favor. What will it take for our political representatives to finally take action — a mass murder at a daycare facility, a hospital, an old-age home? Let’s hope not. To locate your congressional representatives, visit Contact them and demand action now!

‘What could be a more accepted tradition than Christmas?’ I am amazed at how Leah Koenig can write an article about the “holidays” two weeks before Dec. 25 and not once mention Christmas (Dec. 7 Reporter). Christmas is not only recognized as a national holiday here in the U.S. but celebrated by millions of Christians around the world. I’m also astonished at how her elementary school students wrote poems about what they enjoy about their “holidays” and not one wrote about Santa Claus or Christmas presents. That in itself is amazing, I wonder where they got that idea. She states that the assignment was a reminder of what a

simple lens our children view the “holidays” through and what creates memories: traditions. What could be a more accepted tradition than Christmas? A tradition that people all over the globe celebrate. A tradition built on the phase “peace on Earth and goodwill toward man.” People like Leah Koenig are diminishing the true meaning and wonderful tradition of Christmas by referring to it as just a “holiday.” Giving or exchanging gifts at Christmas time is a sign of offering peace to one another. I don’t know about the kids in her class but I don’t remember one hot chocolate, one bedtime story or ever frosting sugar cookies. What I do remember is my first Lionel model train, my first bicycle and my first baseball mitt, all of which came from Santa. What a wonderful tradition. By the way, I didn’t get “holiday” pajamas, I got Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve. When we went out caroling, we sang Christmas carols. We didn’t wrap “holiday” gifts, we wrapped Christmas gifts. We didn’t go out as a family tradition and buy a “holiday” tree, we bought a Christmas tree. She talks about reducing the ambiguity and anxiety from the “holidays.” What is more ambiguous than to not recognize Christmas? Other than Easter, it might be the most celebrated holiday in the world.

Do I really need to sweat profusely to get in a good workout, or is this another fitness myth? Myth all the way! Sweating and the overall quality of your workout do not go hand in hand. Workout quality depends on the type of activity, the intensity and the duration. Sweating is simply a way for your overheated body to cool itself…that’s it. Some people sweat from the very beginning of physical activity and others end up doing 30 minutes before the first bead hits the floor. Your environment, specifically the temperature and humid-

omega-3s, fiber, protein, minerals and antioxidants, chia seeds can easily be incorporated into your diet in drinks, snack items, raw or combined with water to substitute for an egg. Because widespread consumption of chia seeds is relatively new, conclusive research on the exact health benefits is still developing. Emerging research with small sample sizes suggest possible cardiovascular benefits like lowered cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure, as well as the promotion of weight loss.

ity, certainly plays a role, but the amount you sweat is very individualized, as well. When you’re physically active, your core body temperature rises and the body looks for an easy way to dissipate heat. So, the next time you’re sweating and someone mentions that you look hot, just tell them, “Really, I was just starting to get cool.”

“I just don’t like water,” she said. “Well, what’s not to like about it?” I asked. “You feel fatigued all the time, right?” “Yes, but I have a 3-yearold and I’m going to school, and I’m working…” “You’re a busy lady! Did you know that water can replenish your tissues and give you the boost you need throughout the day?” “Oh I get my daily dose of caffeine from the coffee stand around the corner.” “Well, how much could you save by replacing just two days of the coffee stand visit with a bit of water to help you though the day? It’s not only good for you; it’s good for your wallet. Plus your body will have the nutrients it needs to help you move easier because your muscles have what they need to do their job. It’ll also keep your skin

hydrated, something that’s difficult to do this time of year, with cold weather and heated buildings being very drying to the skin.” “Yes,” Susie replied, “I have been noticing how dry my skin has been feeling. Plus, this time of year it’s so hard to avoid all that extra food. I’ve been trying, but it seems like such a small amount — just one cookie here, a piece of fudge there…but it really adds up!” “Guess what?” I said, “Drinking water can help you control those urges. Many people mistake thirst for hunger, and can feel completely satisfied when they consume water on a regular basis. So, even though you’ll see the cookie, chances are you won’t really crave it or ‘have’ to have it because your stomach will tell your brain that it’s already full. That’s

definitely a great help!” “It really does that?” she asked. “I’m surprised, but I it makes a lot of sense. But doesn’t water make you have to go to the bathroom all the time?” “That’s a common misconception,” I replied. “The secret is your kidney metabolism. When you don’t drink water on a regular basis, your kidneys set a low metabolism because they ‘think’ that’s all the water that’s around. But when you increase your water intake ...” Susie’s eyes widened when she realized she knew the answer ... “Your kidney metabolism will set higher to adjust to the new ‘normal’ water intake!” “That’s right!” I said, cheerfully. “So, while at first, it may be true about going to the bathroom, after just a few weeks, your [ more water page 7 ]

Courtesy photo not have any type of legislation in place nationally. As a result, anything the United States brings to the table is not taken seriously. “It’s kind of making us look bad on the international scene,” Catlin said. “We’re ignoring international justice for the sake of a little comfort here.” The UNFCCC allows non-governmental organizations (NGOs), indigenous groups, women’s groups and youth groups such as SustainUS to attend as observer parties. As an observer party,

Catlin said they are able to meet with the negotiator for the United States to ask questions and get information. Observer parties are also able to give an intervention, which means making a public statement in a plenary with representatives from all countries. Catlin said observer parties can also hold sanctioned protests within the conference in designated areas. “You can use that to try and get at a negotiator,” she said, adding that gaining media attention is another goal of a protest.

Catlin and her fellow youth protested and held up signs about the lack of leadership that has blocked progress on any type of international agreement. Doha was Catlin’s second UNFCCC. She attended last year’s convention in South Africa and said she felt “an overwhelming amount of emotion” at being able to attend when she was only 21. “I’m still kind of shocked that this is even an opportunity,” she admitted.

delegations to U.N. conferences on climate change, sustainable development, social development, women and biological diversity,” said Yeung. “At these conferences, SustainUS delegations work with hundreds of young people from across the globe to advocate for robust sustainable development policies.” While at the UNFCCC, SustainUS delegations lobby government officials, stage actions to bring attention to pressing issues and work to generate media attention. “One of the major campaigns that SustainUS conducted this year was calling for U.S. Congress to move forward with climate legislation, given that U.S. inaction on climate change has been one of the largest hurdles to achieving an international climate treaty,” Yeung said. Catlin said while there are so many issues that need to be addressed nowadays, climate change should be a top priority because it affects so many things, ranging from the global gross domestic product to national security. “It’s very much the steak, it’s the meat (of the issue),” she said.

Kate Catlin was first introduced to environmentalism when she was a student at Redmond High School (RHS). “I’m a ‘Townie,’” she said, referring to her former science teacher, Mike Town. Since then, the 22-yearold Gonzaga University senior has become an environmental activist, working at various levels. She spent a year in Washington, D.C., helping high schools go green and has worked with young people worldwide on developing policies to address climate change. Most recently, Catlin attended the 18th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Doha, Qatar, as leader of the youth delegation with SustainUS. The convention was held Nov. 26 through Dec. 8 and brings world leaders together to try and negotiate a legally binding agreement to mitigate climate change. “This process has been largely unsuccessful,” Catlin said. She said part of this has been due to the United States’ hesitation and the fact that this country does

SustainUS. SustainUS chair Louise Yeung said Catlin, who is studying economics with a concentration on entrepreneurship, was very active in lobbying for innovative climate finance policy. “As one of the outstanding stars of the 2011 delegation, we brought her back on as the delegation leader for this year’s negotiations,” Yeung said. “Through her effective leadership, she has helped to build a tremendous amount of capacity for this year’s delegation.” As leader, Catlin organized trainings and working sessions on a range of science and policy topics to prepare the delegation to be effective on the ground. She also managed the logistics of sending 20 young people to Doha. SustainUS is a youthled NGO that empowers young people to advance sustainable development. Catlin said everyone involved is 26 and younger. The organization was started in 2001 by a group of young people who decided to organize a delegation to the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002. “Over the past decade, SustainUS has expanded its presence to send youth

any age — so if a child is overly sensitive, they should limit exposure more in these cases. As it is the holiday season, Conrad said parents should also make sure they do what they normally do this time of year. This will provide a positive distraction for children. “We don’t want this to totally affect their holiday experience,” Conrad said. She added that another thing families could do is send cards or other mementos to Newtown, Conn., as a way to be proactive.


At Lake Washington School District (LWSD), school counselors work with their school principals and

staffs and with each other in providing student support after a tragedy. High schools in LWSD can have up to four counselors; middle schools will also have a couple and elementary schools will have one full-time or part-time counselor who splits their time with other schools. Dale Cote, who oversees the district’s counselors, said if something has happened at a specific school, he will work with the counselors there to assess the situation and see if they need to deploy more counselors to the site. The most recent incident in which this happened was after the death of Jackson Roos, an Evergreen Middle School student who died in

September in a zip-lining accident. Cote said everyone dealt with the tragedy differently but some students did see counselors. “It’s a safe place for kids just to say what’s on their mind and say what’s on their heart,” he said. “(The counselors) were utilized that day, sadly, but they were.” If a teacher or other staff member is struggling, Cote said the district provides access to professional counseling services through its benefits package.

said it is going to take a whole list of things to make things better — including meaningful discussions about guns, mental health and violence. “There’s not a simple answer…it’s more complex,” she said. “It’s a complex problem that has a lot of factors.” Scriven said we may not be able to completely stop shootings, but we have to look at what we may be doing to contribute and make changes to limit such events.



Conrad said everyone reacts to tragic events differently and if parents see that their children are reacting more severely, they should seek professional help. Signs include problems sleeping, wanting to sleep with their parents for an extended period of time, an obsessive need for reassurance and a fear to go back to school. Both Cote and Scriven agreed on seeking outside assistance. “We may invite outside counselors depending on the situation,” Cote said. Scriven, who offers basic counseling and can answer spiritual questions, added, “There’s no shame in getting help…We ask for help and we acknowledge that (some things are beyond our abilities).”

In the aftermath of a tragic event, religion is also a place people may turn. Cara Scriven, the pastor at Redmond United Methodist Church in downtown, said people will often question God’s existence and presence in the wake of such “evil.” “As a pastor, the way I addressed them…is to look to the places where God is working in these situations,” she said. In the case of Sandy Hook, Scriven cited the heroics of the teachers and first responders, as well as the way the community has come together since then. She also says as Christians, it is their job to make the world better. The question is, how? After last Friday’s shooting, Scriven

“As part of this effort, we will also reach out to our families and school communities to build greater awareness and knowledge regarding these plans,” Pierce added in the letter. Pierce also offered suggestions on how to make children feel safe including monitoring the television, maintaining a normal routine, filtering what you say and listening and observing. Pierce’s letter has also been posted on the LWSD website.

If we suit, “because practice it, I really (they) had pracbelieve they will go ticed it.” on autopilot. ” Belshaw said Karen Belshaw they have more Principal, John James than 500 students Audubon Elementary, and 50 staff at discussing practicing Audubon and emergency drills during a recent evacuation drill, they were able to get everyone out of the building and accounted for in four minutes. “It was amazing, but that’s what practice does,” she said. Each room at Audubon also has an emergency backpack filled with first-aid supplies, flashlights, classroom lists, signs to indicate whether all students are accounted for and other emergency supplies teachers might need if they need to evacuate the building of if they are in a lockdown and have to stay in the classroom. The school also has a closet on campus with

other supplies such as canopies, water, ponchos and food in case students are stranded at school for a longer period. Both the backpacks and supplies closets have been paid for by the school’s PTSA. “The goal is to have enough food and water to take care of kids for three days,” Reith said.


In addition to constant conversations and practice at schools, LWSD risk manager Scott Emry said they also partner with the local police departments in the district’s three cities: Redmond, Kirkland and Sammamish. He said he thinks the district needs to work in partnership with the local first responders because if they are not in communication about their respective emergency procedures, that could cause more of a hazard during an emergency. Emry said to help with communication between school districts and emergency response teams, the state has provided funding for Rapid Responder, which gives police and fire departments access to building plans, photos, utilities and other pertinent information they might need during an emergency. He said these plans were developed in partnership with the local police and fire departments so they provide exactly what information the teams would need. “It takes the guessing game out of the emergency — so to speak,” Emry said. He added that all of this information is secured and not accessible without a password. Emry also said he couldn’t provide specific emergency procedures and plans they have in place for security purpose.

Emry is head of the district’s safety advisory committee, which includes representatives from all three cities’ emergency response teams, and said they have regular conversations and meet every other month to discuss emergency preparedness, safety, security and other related issues. The most recent committee meeting was last Thursday, the day before the Sandy Hook shooting. “We meet regularly, we have partnerships, we have protocol,” Emry said. “We work hard to make sure we have an open relationship.” LWSD schools also have school resource officers (SROs) on campus, who are officers employed by the local police department. Emry said depending on the grade level, each school may have one officer on campus full time or the officer may split their time among a number of schools. Jim Bove, spokesperson for the Redmond Police Department, said they take a very direct approach in communicating with students and staff. “We have officers who serve as lunch buddies and we are in constant contact with administration throughout Redmond schools and preschools with crime-prevention information and we often do presentations for staff and students,” he said. Bove added that preparing for a situation similar to Sandy Hook is something they continuously talk about and train for, as well. “We work collaboratively with the school district throughout the year,” he said. “We have active shooter training at schools and other areas that may experience this type of event.”

Congratulations to Francesca U. and her Cannoli Cheesecake This cheesecake has all the flavors of a classic Italian cannoli.

Directions Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl, stir together the vanilla wafer crumbs and 3 Tbs. granulated sugar. Mix in the melted butter until the crumbs are evenly moist and clump together slightly. Transfer the mixture to a 9-inch springform pan and press evenly onto the bottom and about 2 inches up the sides of the pan (to press, use plastic wrap or a flat-bottom measuring cup). Bake until the crust is fragrant and slightly darkened, 9 to 12 minutes. Let the pan cool on a rack. Lower the oven temperature to 300°F. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, ricotta, flour, and a pinch of table salt on medium speed, scraping down the sides of the bowl and the paddle frequently, until very smooth and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Make sure the cheese has no lumps. Add the 1-1/4 cups granulated sugar and continue beating until well blended and smooth. Add the chocolate chips, orange zest, and vanilla, and beat until blended, about 30 seconds. Add the eggs one at a time, beating just until blended. (Don’t overbeat once the eggs have been added or the cheesecake will puff too much and crack as it cools.) Pour the filling into the cooled crust and smooth the top. Bake at 300°F until the center jiggles like Jell-O when nudged, 55 to 65 minutes. The cake will be slightly puffed around the edges, and the center will still look moist. Set on a rack and cool completely. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 8 hours and up to 3 days. The cake can also be frozen at this point for up to 1 month (see make-ahead tip, below). Unclasp and remove the side of the springform pan and run a long, thin metal spatula under the bottom crust. Carefully slide the cake onto a flat serving plate. Garnish with confectioners’ sugar sifted over the cake and serve immediately. To cut, run a thin knife under hot water, wipe it dry, and cut the cake into slices, heating and wiping the knife after every slice. Make Ahead Tips To freeze, put the unmolded, cooled cake on a rimmed baking sheet in the freezer, uncovered, until the top is cold and firm; then wrap it in two layers of plastic and one layer of foil. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.


Tim Sharpe is angry that he couldn’t agree on an offer with the state to keep his Graces 5 healthy eating restaurant open longer. His foray into the business world with his wife, Katherine, was cut short last week after a 16-month run because the owners lost their business license due to unpaid taxes. According to a State of Washington Department of Revenue order revoking certificate of registration taped to the restaurant’s door at 8110 164th Ave. N.E. in downtown Redmond, the Sharpes owe $38,340.48 in unpaid taxes. Tim Sharpe said it was a tough go for small-business owners having to pay for food, rent and employees — and sales taxes, where they fell behind. “We’re taking a step back. I don’t think this is the end of Graces 5,” he said on Wednesday. “We’re going to close for a few months, take a deep breath, re-evaluate our situation and get our debt taken care of.” He added that they’ve met with restaurant consultants and may tweak their business plan and possibly relocate within the area, somewhere else in Washington or out of state. “We’ve learned a ton and I want to say ‘thank you’ to the people who had allergies and came to support the restaurant,” he said, adding that some people thought the Graces 5 menu was “strange.” They offered a menu of gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and low-sugar items for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Tim Sharpe noted that people flocked to the restaurant and praised them for their healthy offerings. One woman loved the place so much that she became an employee. One junior high student brought two friends to Graces 5 for a birthday gathering and the glutenfree-eating trio all enjoyed their meals. “They had smiles from ear to ear,” he said.

The majority of her childhood was spent in San Diego with her two younger sisters Donna and Alice. She later moved to the Seattle area where she spent the majority of her life. She has been described as Strong, Resilient, A Survivor, Accepting, Fiercely Loving, Hilarious, A Rock, The Matriarch, Best Friend, Wife, Sister, Auntie, Nana and Mom. Her life was full of greatness and wonder. She was a bank teller, worked in a bingo hall, traveled with the carnival (where she owned several booths), and ran a daycare for the last 23 years of her life. Her friendships were strong and everlasting. Carol Mae is survived by her loving husband of 33 years Jerry Askew, sister Donna Shinn (Kirkland) and Alice Vlcek (St. Louis, MO), 3 sons, Dana Chaffin (Redmond), Scott Chaffin (Colbert), and Tom Askew (Issaquah), 2 Step-Children Laura (Askew) Brantner (Durand, WI) and Steve Askew (Poulsbo), 11 grandchildren Jason, Tanner, Hanna, Melissa, Neil, Summer, Erika, India, Ivy, Lisa and Makayla, many cherished nieces and nephews and cousins and countless families whose children she cared for at Happy Days Day Care. Carol, to you everyone was family and you will be truly missed by so many. Go in peace knowing that the foundation that you worked so hard to create will sustain for generations and that you life was success. Well done my good and faithful one. An Open House Celebration of Life was held at Sunset Hills Memorial Home, Bellevue on December 19, 2012. In lieu of flowers please make a donation the American Cancer Society on Carol’s behalf.

Choking on small objects is not the only thing that should concern parents of small children when it comes to the things that they put in their mouths. It seems that some items that young children put in their mouths with the blessing of their parents can also pose a potential threat. A recent study shows that, between 1991 and 2010, 45,398 children under the age of three years visited emergency rooms for the treatment of injuries related to baby bottles, pacifiers, or sippy cups. In 86 percent of these cases, the children fell with one of these objects in their mouths. As a result, many sustained dental injuries and cuts to their mouths and other soft tissue. Caution is urged. From the irritability of teething to the shock of a knocked out permanent tooth, dental problems have a way of making themselves known loud and clear. At NW FAMILY and SPORTS DENTISTRY, we offer high quality dentistry for all family members. Call 425.641.4111 to schedule an appointment. We’re located in the Forest Office Park, UNITARIAN PRESBYTERIAN Building F, at 14655 Bel-Red Road, Suite 101, near the Microsoft Main Campus in Bellevue, where our goal is to make each visit a comfortable and positive experience.

Students from Lake Washington High School collected 19 pallets of food and raised $4,000 for Redmondbased Hopelink for local families in need. Courtesy


Students from Lake Washington High School (LWHS) collected two truckloads of food for Eastside families assisted by Redmond-based Hopelink for the holiday season and beyond. In addition, the school’s Loyalty Club raised $4,000. At the beginning of November, club members organized shifts at local markets to solicit contributions from the community in their goal of beating last year’s record of 12,000 pounds of food and household items they collected. While Hopelink doesn’t weigh everything immediately, Loyalty Club advisers and LWHS teachers Lindsay Roger and Nicole Massey believe that they’ll make their goal.

Puget Sound Energy makes it easier to find contractor recommendations online Puget Sound Energy (PSE) residential customers in need of a contractor for energy efficiency and home improvement projects can now generate their own contractor referrals online at CAN through the energy company’s Contractor Alliance Network. The online selfreferral tool matches

customers with local contractors who specialize in the following services: heating and cooling, solar, water heating, natural gas conversion, weatherization, windows, home performance evaluation, roofing and generators. Once a customer submits project information, PSE automatically links independent

pre-qualified Contractor Alliance Network (formerly the Contractor Referral Service) members who specialize in the requested service. Member contractors then contact customers directly to expedite scheduling an appointment to provide the customer with an estimate for their project. PSE developed the

AAA projects year-end travel to increase AAA projects 93.3 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the year-end holidays, an increase of 1.6 percent over the 91.8 million people who traveled last year. This increase brings holiday travel figures to within half a million of the decade high mark seen during the 2006/2007 season. The year-end holiday travel period is defined as Dec. 22 to Jan. 1, 2013. AAA estimates the national average price of gasoline will slowly drop through the end of the year. Gas prices dropped

about 50 cents a gallon on average from September through early December, but remain at record highs for this time of year in some parts of the country. AAA does not expect gas prices to have a major impact on travel volume, but consumers could have more money to spend on holiday shopping, dining and entertainment if prices drop through December as expected. Approximately 90 percent of travelers (84.4 million) plan to travel by automobile this holiday season. This is a 1.3 percent increase over the

83.3 million people who traveled by auto last year. Air travel is expected to increase 4.5 percent as six percent of travelers or 5.6 million will take to the skies. Those traveling by air will find lower airfares according to AAA’s Leisure Travel Index. For the year-end holiday period the average lowest round-trip rate is $203 for the top 40 U.S. air routes, a 3 percent decrease from last year. Approximately 3.3 million travelers will choose other modes of transportation, including rail, bus and cruise ship.

free online service to take the time and hassle out of finding the right contractor. Each member contractor must adhere to a comprehensive prescreening and application process, and once accepted, each contractor is continuously evaluated by PSE to ensure the highest quality of work and customer

service are provided to our valued customers. Currently, there are more than 100 member contractors covering PSE’s service area. All Contractor Alliance Network members are: licensed, bonded and insured; knowledgeable about current energy codes, high efficiency equipment and product applications; and

continually trained and educated to keep up with the latest technology. PSE’s Contractor Alliance Network is available to residential customers living in a single-family property or attached housing with four or less individually metered units. Visit PSE. com/CAN to create a self-referral.
