DelBene, Reichert discuss Redmond’s centennial with Mayor Marchione

U.S. Reps. Suzan DelBene (WA-01) and Dave Reichert (WA-08) visited the City of Redmond Tuesday afternoon to congratulate Mayor John Marchione and the city on Redmond’s centennial. The two representatives presented the mayor with a joint statement they issued last month, as well as a U.S. flag that flew over the capitol in Washington, D.C. in honor of Redmond’s 100th birthday, which was Dec. 31, 2012. DelBene and Reichert also spoke a few words about their experiences in Redmond. DelBene first moved to the area from Oregon in the mid 1980s. Although she has never actually lived in the city, she worked at Redmond-based Microsoft Corp. from 1989-98. In addition, when she left

With Lake Washington School District (LWSD) moving toward a one-onone computing model in which each student receives a netbook computer for their studies, it’s clear that technology is being integrated into the curriculum. But with great technology comes great responsibility. This was the message Charles Leitch wanted to send to students at Evergreen Middle School (EMS) in Redmond Thursday morning. “You want to be careful,” he cautioned them. During his presentation, Leitch, a Seattle attorney who represents school districts and other public entities, stressed the importance of thinking before acting. He told students that once they post something online, send an email or text message, it’s out there for the world to see.

“You lose control the minute you send that photo,” he said. “Anything you post will be found at some point.” This being said, Leitch — who has been speaking to school administrators, parents and students nationwide on the subject of cyber safety for about four years — encouraged the students to set privacy settings on any public profiles or accounts they may have to make it more difficult for their information to get into the wrong hands. While people can control what they say and how they say it, Leitch said they can’t control how others take it and how it affects them. He said this is especially true online as we can’t see their reactions. Because of this, Leitch told EMS students to pay attention to others’ feelings and whether the comment they post or the picture they send might be hurtful. “It’s really easy to lose [ more safety page 8 ]

Brawl breaks out after Redmond, Eastlake basketball game Staff Report

Sammamish police officers responded to calls of multiple fights on Jan. 4 at the local McDonald’s following a rival boys high school basketball game between Eastlake and Redmond. According to Administrative Sergeant Jessica Sullivan, seven officers responded to

the scene shortly after 9:10 p.m., to find 50 people milling around the parking lot. Witnesses told the officers that several Redmond students walked into the fast food restaurant and began taunting Eastlake students. Redmond had just defeated Eastlake in a close game, 59-56. Sullivan said the taunts escalated into a physical fight that involved parties who fled

before police arrived. Officers located one 16-year-old male from Redmond, who was bleeding from cuts to his head and had minor facial swelling. The boy told officers he saw his friend fighting, so he decided to jump in. He said he did not know the reason for the fight and would not identify any other involved parties. The student was treated

by Eastside Fire and Rescue and released at the scene. Neither the Sammamish Police Department, King County Sheriff ’s Office, nor Redmond Police Department have received subsequent assault reports. Sullivan said she was unable substantiate a rumor that someone was hospitalized as a [ more brawl page 8 ]

Superintendent announces temporary boundary recommendation On Wednesday, Lake Washington School District Superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce sent an email to the parents of students at Rosa Parks and Laura Ingalls Wilder elementary schools with her proposed temporary boundary change. Pierce will recommend the temporary boundary committee’s recommendation of Scenario C for the temporary boundary change between these two schools for the 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 school years. She will make that recommendation to the district’s board of directors at the board meeting on Monday. The board will vote on the specific proposal on Jan. 28. “This option provides the best

balance of moving students to Wilder from Rosa Parks without placing Wilder over capacity and requiring additional portables at Wilder, which would result in additional cost to the district,” Pierce said. “It keeps most neighborhoods together and makes Rosa Parks entirely a walking school, minimizing the transportation impact.” Scenario C is one of three possible boundary scenarios the committee shared with Rosa Parks and Wilder

Elementary parents in November 2012. The committee considered but rejected eight other scenarios that did not move enough students from Rosa Parks, resulted in Wilder becoming at or over capacity and/or resulted in transportation concerns. The three scenarios were presented to parents and community members at an open house on Nov. 29 at Evergreen Middle School. Parent input on these options was sought through paper and web survey instruments. A total of 345 individuals responded, including 256 who identified themselves as having students at Rosa Parks and 87 with students at Wilder. Scenario C, which moves most

of Redmond Ridge East to Wilder, was ranked number one among the three scenarios by 204 out of the 345 parents who responded to the survey. Scenario B was the second choice, while Scenario A was a distant third. Survey results are available on the district website. Survey respondents pointed out that Scenario C would make Rosa Parks a walking school again. It would keep most neighborhoods together and primarily use natural boundaries. Scenario B was seen to impact fewer kids, keep a more steady number of students at each school and preserve the Redmond Ridge neighborhood. In September 2012, Pierce met

Sound Publishing purchases Seattle Weekly Sound Publishing, the state’s largest community news organization that includes the Redmond Reporter, purchased the Seattle Weekly on Wednesday. Details of the purchase were not disclosed. The Weekly, a freely distributed newspaper in Seattle and nearby cities, was purchased from Village Voice Media Holdings.

Pierce informed the Rosa Parks and Wilder communities in October 2012 that a temporary boundary change would be put into place as a short-term solution to addressing the issue of the size of Rosa Parks. The long-term solution to the increasing capacity issues in the district’s Redmond Learning Community is to build additional school(s). The district is working on developing a capital bond measure to put forward to voters in February 2014, which would include a new elementary school.

Legislators have tough budget decisions to make as session begins The 2013 legislative bell will ring on Monday as local legislators take the ring in Olympia to tackle a tough $900 million budget shortfall. That figure doesn’t include the additional $1 billion in spending required under the McCleary ruling that determined the state was not meeting its constitutional obligation to pay for basic education. It’s going to be a difficult fight and, some legislators say, may be impossible. Six legislators across two districts will represent Redmond. Those legislators include 48th District Reps. Ross Hunter (D), Cyrus Habib (D) and Sen. Rodney Tom (D); 45th District Reps. Roger Goodman (D), Larry Springer (D) and Sen. Andy Hill (R). Several of these officials will head various legislative committees. In the House of Representatives, Hunter will lead the House budget writers, serving as chair of the Appropriations Committee that considers the state operating budget bill. In addition, Goodman will chair the House Public Safety Committee and Springer will serve as the deputy majority floor leader for Jobs & Economic Develop-

ment. In the state Senate, Hill will chair the Senate Ways and Means Committee. Tom will serve as chair of the Higher Education & Workforce Development Committee. He will also serve as the majority leader for the new and controversial bipartisan Senate coalition. The Majority Coalition Caucus will have six Democratled committees and six Republican-led committees that have no more than a onevote majority. As always, the Reporter will continue to keep readers informed of legislative issues that affect Redmond residents.

We will cover legislative forums that occur in Redmond, and for the third year in a row we also have a team of interns on the Capitol campus that will provide coverage for you through the WNPA Olympia News Bureau. These eight University of Washington interns account for more than half of the Olympia-based press corps. We look forward to providing legislative coverage and we welcome your questions and comments about what is happening in Olympia to: letters@redmond-reporter. com.

Gun control is not the answer Focus on facts and avoid (In response to Lyndon Heywood’s letter, the ‘do-something disease’ “Time for state action on guns,” Jan. 4.) While I abhor the recent gun violence and certainly don’t condone guns in the hands of criminals or those deemed not responsible for their actions, “gun control,” whatever that means, is not the answer. Mr. Heywood cites the example of the ban on all handguns by the UK, as what “a capable, effective and representative government can do.” Our current government can’t even agree on what’s fiscally best for our country, let alone come up with a legal, constitutionally permissible policy on firearms. I don’t want our government, state or federal, knowing if I have guns, ammo or any other items associated with firearms. Folks like me are NOT the problem! Deranged, criminally-inclined and those in need of heavy-duty anger management are. Why should Washington state, “have among the strictest guns laws in the country...”? Stricter than Washington, D.C., Detroit or other crimeridden municipalities? I have guns, as do thousands in this state, and apparently in the words of Mr. Heywood, we’re “fragile human beings” for possessing them. I’m not “fragile,” and I’m sure the other gun owners in our state don’t see themselves in that way either. I’ve heard no one come up with a sensible solution to the possession of firearms by those who shouldn’t have them. When they do, I’ll listen.

Dick Bowne, Redmond

Any crisis, whether it be an airplane crash from terrorists, automobile accident by a drunk driver or a mass shooting of innocent lives, often causes a public outcry to do something. Unfortunately, government action to do something often results in a loss of freedom to law-abiding citizens and no impact whatsoever on the problem being addressed. Rahm Emanual, White House Chief of Staff from 2009 to 2010 and now the Mayor of Chicago, said “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Now the Obama Administration wants to pass stricter gun-control laws on law-abiding citizens that will not affect these types of tragedies. Criminals that want to get a gun will get one regardless of the law. The Obama Administration tries to pass their agenda based on emotion. Because we are a conscientious, caring society it is very easy for us to just act out of emotion and ignore the facts. In essence, we feel good that we have done something, in spite of the lack of evidence that what we did has any impact. So lets try to remove the emotional part of this issue and concentrate on the facts. Australia and England have some of the strictest gun-control laws in the world. What they have learned is that law-abiding citizens that gave up their guns have fallen prey to criminals. Criminals know that law-abiding citizens do not have any way to protect themselves. So crime has gone up.

The article titled “The Failure of British Gun Control Law” states: In the period 1981-96, as American crime rates fell, British crime rates rose. Britain now has higher rates of robbery, assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft than the United States. They also state, “Of course, most readers of this column are already aware that gun control largely keeps guns out of the hands of the people that aren’t a problem. What about the people that gun control should disarm? Recent newspaper coverage from Britain suggests that after completely banning semi-automatic rifles and shotguns in the 1980s after the Hungerford Massacre, as well as all handguns after the Dunblane Massacre, they still have a big problem with guns in the wrong hands. Thomas Sowell wrote an article titled “The Great Gun Control Fallacy.” He writes the following, “The key fallacy of so-called gun control laws is that such laws do not in fact control guns. They simply disarm law-abiding citizens; while people bent on violence find firearms readily available. If gun control zealots had any respect for facts, they would have discovered this long ago, because there have been too many factual studies over the years to leave any serious doubt about gun control laws being not merely futile but counterproductive.” Remember that guns do not kill people. People kill people using many tools to accomplish it such as guns, knives, poison, etc. In stead of dealing with the facts, Vice President Joe Biden and Harry Reid, senate majority leader, are right [ more letters page 5 ]

now trying to pass stricter gun laws before the Newtown tragedy wears off. Remember their motto, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” I don’t know what is good about a crisis. I guess they see it as an opportunity to increase the size of government through ineffectual legislation. Too bad they did not move that fast during the fiscal-cliff crisis.

‘We can create positive change’ in protecting natural resources Thank you for the recent invitation to become part of expanded discussions on your editorial pages. The Redmond Reporter’s print and online publications are an important community resource for sharing views on “issues of the day.” Just over a year ago, a controversy arose in Redmond regarding preservation of over 1,000 trees in Overlake. Much of the discussion centered on the manner by which the public was informed about plans to remove significant and landmark trees and the administrative exceptions to city tree protection regulations that would enable cutting 100 percent of the trees on a given property. In the process, many ecological and community benefits of mature urban trees were emphasized by speakers in public testimony to Redmond’s City Council. In trying to learn from that experience, Sustainable Redmond submitted proposed amendments to Redmond’s Comprehensive Plan last April. Those proposals are now coming before the Planning Commission for review as they make their way to the City Council for consideration. The amendments seek to improve public

notice processes, enhance opportunities for public engagement and promote a better understanding of the process by which tree exceptions are granted. (Exceptions are currently granted behind closed doors by a Technical Committee.) The Comprehensive Plan amendments also seek to retain some mature trees in urban centers when possible rather than have them replaced by smaller specimens with lesser ecological value. Your support of these amendments is encouraged so we can create positive change and move beyond the status quo in protecting natural resources in our community. (A public hearing will take place at 7 p.m. on Jan. 16 at Redmond City Hall.)

Rodney Tom does ‘disservice’ to district Apparently Sen. Rodney Tom isn’t listening to his district’s voters, who last month chose Democrats to serve in the state Legislature, to be governor of Washington, and to be president of the United States. And although Tom was elected as a Democrat, he announced he will join the Republican minority in the state Senate to create a Minority Majority to control the floor and committee leadership of the Senate. Tom is consistent, since he changed parties from Republican to Democratic in 2006 when he didn’t get what he wanted in the House of Representatives. Last spring he joined the Republicans and voted to approve another $74 million dollar cut in public school funding, after already cutting K-12 funding by $2.5 billion in recent years Why then did Tom announce he will block any attempts to find essential ad-

While MS Remains Shrouded in Mystery, MS Society Drives the Search for a Cure What causes multiple sclerosis, a disease of the central nervous system? Scientists are working on several factors that they think might be involved, but so far the exact cause remains a mystery. What is known is that MS affects 400,000 individuals in the U.S. and 2.1 million worldwide. About 200 people are diagnosed with this condition each week and women are more than twice as likely as men to contract this incurable and often debilitating condition. The disease most commonly strikes people between the ages of 20 and 50. MS attacks the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms can range from mild, such as numbness in the limbs, to severe, including paralysis or loss of vision. Possible suspects in the cause of MS include the immune system, the environment, infectious diseases and genetics. What might trigger an abnormal response of the body’s immune system to cause MS? Why does MS occur more often in areas

away from the equator? Does childhood exposure to viruses, bacteria or other microbes trigger the onset of MS years later? Why does having a close family member with MS increase one’s odds of coming down with it? Scientists from around the world are searching for answers. While they do, the Greater Northwest Chapter of the National MS Society is working to mobilize people and resources to help drive that research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS and to provide programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. Headquartered in Seattle, the Greater Northwest Chapter serves over 12,000 people living with MS in 23 counties of western and central Washington as well as people throughout Alaska and Montana. The Oregon Chapter serves more than 7,500 individuals with MS and their families in Oregon and SW Washington.

ditional funding for our students’ schools? Local residents deserve a senator who matches their commitment to fully funded quality public schools. Unfortunately the voters will have to wait until the fall of 2014 to find that senator.

‘You can help give our horses happy lives. We can stop this senseless slaughter’ When you see someone taking their young, healthy horse to an auction, do you think they know where it is going? Probably not. There is a good chance that horse will go to a slaughterhouse. Does that horse really deserve that fate? When horses are bought at an auction by slaughterhouse employees, the majority of them are young and healthy horses because their meat sells for more money than the meat of old or sick horses. They are then transported long distances in crowded trailers with little to no food and water. Though the plants in the U.S. have been shut down, live horses are being shipped across the borders, especially to Mexico, to be killed somewhere else. Pictures from the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) have showed the awful things that happen to the horses in these slaughterhouses. They are killed inhumanely, going through severe pain and suffering. Why do we have so many horses that need to be gotten rid of? Because we over-breed our horses. One in every five racehorses born will be a winner. The other four will most likely end up in a slaughterhouse. We need to learn to be responsible about breeding horses. When a horse was

born, him being bred was an act of the owner agreeing to take responsibility for a living creature. If the transportation of horses across our borders is stopped, and the U.S. slaughterhouses remain closed, we will have a country free from just one more cruelty toward animals. There are other alternatives to sending that horse to a slaughterhouse. What if the owner had privately sold their young, healthy horse so he could enjoy a happy rest of his life? What if that owner had spent the extra money to euthanize that horse and give him a painless death? Isn’t knowing that loyal companion will have a quick and painless death worth the extra money that euthanasia costs? Imagine that a horse you know had a different life. It could have been sent to a slaughterhouse and killed instead of enjoying a happy life. If we end horse slaughter, it will not increase the amount of unwanted, neglected or abused horses. Horse slaughter was banned in California in 1998, and as a result of that horse theft dropped by 34 percent because there was nowhere to take and sell them. You can help that horse at the auction and tens of thousands of other U.S. horses that go to slaughterhouses every year by raising money and donating it to the Humane Society of the United States, which has made ending horses slaughter in the U.S. one of its top priorities. You can talk to your senators and representatives and ask them to support The Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act, which will ban horse slaughter for human consumption and the transportation of live horses across the border to be killed elsewhere. You can help give our horses happy lives. We can stop this senseless slaughter.

Redmond police join the statewide DUI crackdown Samantha Pak

About a decade ago, it wouldn’t have been out of the ordinary for the Redmond Police Department (RPD) to arrest 12-15 individuals per night for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. Nowadays, that number has been reduced to about five or fewer arrests per night and RPD traffic officer Sande English said this has been the result of the agency’s participation in Target Zero, a statewide effort funded by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission (WTSC) aimed to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. According to the program’s website (targetzero. com), Target Zero’s strategy focuses the Four E’s: Education, giving

drivers information to make the best choices; enforcement, using driver behavior data to help pinpoint locations where the most serious collisions occur; engineering, using best practices to prevent or reduce the severity of collisions; and emergency medical services, providing high-quality and rapid emergency and medical response to injury collisions. Through Target Zero, English said law enforcement agencies work together on DUI patrols, often targeting specific areas at certain times such as during the holidays, sporting events or big events such as Seafair, dur-

ing which people tend to consume a lot of alcohol. “During the holidays, it’s typically on the weekends,” she said about the DUI patrols. The King County Target Zero Task Force is divided into north and south Target Zero teams. The north King County team is further divided into two teams with Redmond and other Eastside agencies on one team and Seattle and other agencies on the west side of Lake Washington on the other team. “We all work together,” English said. During the recent holiday season, Target Zero ran a statewide campaign called Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, which targeted drunken driving. The campaign ran from Nov. 21 to Jan. 1 and RPD was one of 28 King County agencies to participate.

Preliminary numbers show that the RPD made 28 DUI-related arrests during this time period, with more than a third of these arrests occurring during the week leading up to Christmas. Crime prevention officer Michael Dowd said that 28 represents overall DUI arrests, not just those made on Drive Sober patrol nights. Statewide, law enforcement officers made 3,446 DUI-related arrests through the Drive Sober campaign, according to a WTSC press release. In King County, 795 motorists were stopped and arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs — down from 960 arrests made during the same time period last year. For additional information, visit www.wtsc.

English has been with RPD for 16 and a half years — since before Target Zero began — and said seeing the number of DUI arrests go down has been huge. “The message is starting to get out there, which is the ultimate goal,” she said. English said when people see a lot of patrol cars out on the streets, they will most likely think twice about driving if they’d been drinking, adding that it has also helped that there are more taxis available so people have a safe alternative to driving while drunk. In addition to the dangers of drunken driving, English said it is also expensive. She said a DUI arrest may cost someone up to $15,000 to $20,000 when you include court fees, attorney fees and increased car insurance payments.

Building a ‘Field of Dreams’ on Redmond Ridge Redmond North Little League leads effort to renovate Redmond Ridge Park fields. Samantha Pak

Redmond North Little League is leading an effort to raise money to renovate the fields at Redmond Ridge Park. From left, top: JD Klein, Eric Tibbs. Middle: Bas Hertogh, Spencer Klein, Nicholas Fazio, Colby Fazio. Front: Harrison Klein, Luke Tibbs, Arianna Tibbs, Whitney Klein. Samantha Pak, Redmond Reporter the only park of its kind in the area and with a population of about 30,000 and growing, Klein said there is a need for playable fields. “The area definitely needs more fields and can support more teams playing up there,” he said. Although the project is to renovate sports fields, it goes beyond that. If sports leagues were able to hold games and tournaments at Redmond Ridge Park, businesses would benefit from the influx of potential customers to the area. “I think it’ll be a great asset for the whole community,” Fazio said. Because of this, Klein said it is going to take more than just RNLL to get the conversion done. Fazio agreed. “It’s going to take the whole community,” she said. The cost to renovate both fields is about $1.7 million.

The project is divided into two phases. Phase One will be converting

public recreation facilities on county land. Program manager T.J. Davis said one of the results of these partnerships is that capital projects get done for less in terms of county funding. “It just opens a lot more opportunities,” he said, explaining how many organizations they work with are nonprofits and can tap into resources the county wouldn’t be able to. Davis added that when a community takes an active role in building a facility, they take ownership and will look after things for the county. He said this helps keep county facilities looking good — especially as King County staff may not be able to get to things immediately — and they are excited this will be happening at Redmond Ridge Park. “We’re excited that we’re going to get some muchneeded love up there,” Davis said.

“They spend a lot of time driving,” he said. Beth Fazio, whose 11and 12-year-old sons play for RNLL, said having an available field nearby would be a great time saver — especially for families with multiple children with multiple and often overlapping schedules. “It’s way more convenient to stay closer to home,” she said. Fazio added that having a newly renovated facility would also create excitement and increase demand in terms of field use. Klein said this is one of the goals of the conversion. With all-weather, all-season fields, other sports leagues — not just baseball — will be encouraged to utilize them. “This isn’t really about baseball or Little League,” he said. “It’s about bringing an all-weather sports field to the area.” Redmond Ridge Park is


“If you build it, he will come.” These seven simple words, coming from a disembodied voice in the middle of a cornfield, prompt Kevin Costner to build a baseball field where he eventually plays catch with his long-estranged father. And while J.D. Klein may not be looking to heal any damaged relationships, he is leading an effort on Redmond Ridge to build their own “Field of Dreams” that will bring people together. As president of Redmond North Little League (RNLL), Klein is working with King County to raise funds to convert the baseball and soccer fields at Redmond Ridge Park, 22915 N.E. Alder Crest Drive, to turf fields to increase their playability throughout the year. Currently, the fields are dirt and sand, which Klein said often get too muddy to play on in the perpetually wet Pacific Northwest weather. As a result, RNLL partners with the City of Redmond and King County to use the ball fields at Hartman Park on Education Hill and Marymoor Park outside of Redmond. While these partnerships work well, Klein said RNLL families are driving anywhere between eight and 12 miles round trip just to play ball.

the baseball field. Klein said this phase is already funded thanks to donations from private donors and businesses, as well as some grants. Phase Two will be converting the soccer field, which would be able to double as two baseball fields, as well. Klein said they still need to raise the funds for this phase. According to Renovate. The.Ridge, a website set up for people to donate to the project, the goal is to raise $60,000 by the end of February. For more information or to donate, visit renovatetheridge.word In addition to these private donations, Klein and RNLL are working with the county’s Community Partnership and Grants (CPG) program to raise money.

He said this is similar to how the city’s founders and pioneers may have seen things differently but worked together to make Redmond successful from its incorporation. “Just a couple years after my birth,” he joked. The silver-haired congressman, who is actually only 62, said he first started visiting Redmond in the 1970s after he met his wife as she was from the area. Like DelBene, Reichert said the city was a lot different in those times.

Marchione, who grew up in Redmond, agreed that the city is a lot different now from those earlier days but said the tradition of differing opinions working together continues. He said although he and members of City Council may have different points of views on things, they all have similar visions of where they want Redmond to go — just different visions of how it will get there. “We do have a great working relationship,” Marchione said. “It’s great to work with this council.” Redmond was incorporated as a city on Dec. 31, 1912, following a community vote and the birth of Ernest Alexander Adams (born Nov. 24, 1912), who brought the population of Redmond to 300, the number needed to incorporate as a city.

sight of that when you’re online,” he said. As with any other type of bullying or harassment, LWSD has policies in place to deal with this type of cyber-bullying. Dr. Ken Lyon, LWSD harassment, intimidation and bullying compliance officer, said as soon as they are aware of a case of cyber-bullying, they will investigate and work to put a stop to it. “When we are aware of something, we investigate thoroughly and promptly,” he said. According to its website, LWSD defines cyberbullying as “bullying that takes place using electronic technology.” This includes electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets and computers, as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat and websites. In addition to his

visit to EMS, Leitch will be speaking at other schools throughout the district. He will also give parent-education seminars at LWSD high schools through February. Leitch said parents are on the frontline between their children and potential dangers online. His presentation will help parents understand how to protect their children in what is an increasingly connected world through phones, mobile devices and online social media. The seminar will help parents approach the use of technology with their children so they can help their children understand the risks of electronic activity. Leitch will also address the role of schools and the legal limits they currently face. “Cyber-bullying and related risks in the use of social media and technology is an important topic among our Lake Washington families.

Sullivan added that while rivalry games can get heated between fans, “we haven’t been called for anything like this in Sammamish in recent years.” According to Redmond Police Department Officer Mike Dowd, he’s seen a handful of altercations between Redmond and Eastlake fans at sporting events during his 23 years with the department, but none in recent years. In a non-Eastlake flare-up in 2009, a Redmond fan ran onto the court and punched a Garfield player in the face during a boys basketball game at Redmond High.

conduct. Dowd said the problems have dwindled due to the police and school administration working together to maintain calmness at events. Officials at both schools are continuing the investigation of last Friday’s brawl, Sullivan said. Dr. Ken Lyon, Lake Washington School District (LWSD) director of student discipline and hearings, said, in a situation like this, the district typically investigates promptly and thoroughly and they have a protocol in place. This protocol includes involving administrators from the schools involved, looking to see what happened and if any part of the student code has been violated. If the code has been violated, they will look at the consequences, which may include disciplinary action. The section of the LWSD student conduct code that relates to last Friday’s fight reads: “Negative Community Action — Washington State Law provides for the implementation of school discipline for actions performed outside of school that may adversely affect the educational environment of the school. Examples include, but are not limited to, acts of vandalism, theft, assault,

drug and alcohol use and sales, inappropriate computer/network behavior, harassment occurring off-campus, including the inappropriate use of email, texting, Skype, or other internet or electronic communications such as to harass or harm others.” Lyon added that if the police are involved, the district will get information from them, but the district will still do its own investigation. “We try to do the investigation promptly,” he said. However, there may be cases where the district may be asked to wait by the police so they can do their investigation first. Kathryn Reith, LWSD director of communications, said the district has a good relationship with all of the police departments within the district and they don’t ever want to impede on police work, so they will cooperate in these cases (if they’re asked to wait to investigate). Lyon said it’s normal for schools to have a rivalry in sports and a little bit of friendly competition among them, but a fight like last Friday’s goes beyond that. “It’s not normal for schools to go past the rivalry,” he said.

won it anyway,” he said. The Taste of the NFL “dip off ” is no more, but Howie said it was a fun experience that gave him and the Seahawks some exposure in the national spotlight. “You go out and act a little Richard Sherman-ish… talk some trash,” he laughed about the Seahawks’ current mouthy cornerback who may be speaking up again if the team can get by the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday.

Top Pot’s playbook

The Seahawks-Washington Redskins matchup was three days away, but playoff football fever had already begun last Friday in the form of 99cent Top Pot Doughnuts offerings. The commemorative Hawks doughnuts featured blue, green and yellow sprinkles atop a white frosting. The Redmond shop opened at 6 a.m. on Jan. 4 and soon sold out of its initial 10-dozen supply, according to employee Taylor Jahnsen. They were expecting another delivery that afternoon, she added, and the doughnuts were be available throughout the weekend. “It’s been a constant question, ‘Do you have the Seahawks doughnuts? Do you have the Seahawks doughnuts?’ Jahnsen said of the phone calls they received. She noted that all Seattle-area Top Pot shops had sold out of the treats that morning. “It’s a mixture of the doughnuts being 99 cents and the excitement and buzz of the Seahawks doing so well this season,” Jahnsen said.

One year of State Route 520 tolling in the books

Serving the Greater Seattle area since 1980

425-488-0923 206-367-8071

It started as a big change for many drivers, but it’s now a part of the everyday commute: All-electronic tolling on the State Route 520 floating bridge marked its one-year anniversary on Dec. 29. SR 520 traffic and revenue continue to meet

projections and are on the way to providing more than $1 billion in funding to help pay for the construction of a new bridge. Traffic is adjusting to variable tolls and settling into a new normal. “We faced challenges along the way, but through hard work and dedica-

tion, SR 520 tolling is a success,” said Craig Stone, assistant secretary for the Washington State Department of Transportation, Toll Division. “Thanks to early tolling, we are already collecting revenue to fund the ongoing construction of a replacement bridge.

As the Seattle Seahawks roll through their season, the victories taste a bit sweeter to chef and restaurateur John Howie, as well. “With them winning, it’s a lot more fun. It’s gotten to a fever pitch now,” he said the day after the Hawks’ 24-14 playoff victory over the Washington Redskins last Sunday. The Redmond resident has represented the Seahawks at the Taste of the NFL event for the last nine years at the Super Bowl, and one of his “Kick Hunger Challenge” events was in full swing last night at his SPORT Restaurant & Bar in Seattle. All the proceeds will go to Seattle’s Food Lifeline. As of the Reporter’s deadline, Seattle was in fourth place with $8,075 raised in the national 32-team “Kick Hunger Challenge” campaign while the Minnesota Vikings were on top with $12,935 raised for hunger-relief organizations. Howie, 52, and Seahawk alumni Craig Terrill teamed up to bring a taste of New Orleans (the official host city of Super Bowl XLVII) to SPORT with a dinner of distinctive Creole- and Cajun-influenced dishes. Terrill and his band of Seattle musicians performed and guests participated in a silent auction to bid on Seahawks memorabilia and food and drink certificates. The duo will be in New Orleans for the Taste of the NFL next month and they hope the Seahawks will

join them by competing in the Super Bowl. The Taste’s “Party with a Purpose” — which features chefs from all 32 pro football teams serving their dishes the night before the big game — has raised $13 million for hunger-relief organizations the last 21 years. Howie — who owns five Seattlearea restaurants — will serve seared diver scallop with golden beet carpaccio, black truffle vinaigrette and arugula at the event. In Howie’s Taste of the NFL appearance in 2006, he went head-tohead with a chef from Pittsburgh in a “dip off ” on the Good Morning American TV show since the Seahawks and Steelers competed in the Super Bowl that year in Detroit. Howie planned on serving a Dungeness crab, green chili artichoke dip against the Pittsburgh chef ’s bean dip, but something unfortunate happened the day before the challenge. Howie’s dip was mysteriously missing in the walk-in refrigerator — the Steelers’ dip was present. Like any stellar quarterback, Howie and his sous chef changed their game plan on the fly and went with a frozen blue crab dip since Dungeness crab wasn’t available when they went shopping for backup ingredients. Howie won the “dip off ” and notes that “I was the only Seattle winner that day in Detroit.” So what happened to his original dip? “I’ve always questioned that … I just know that we went ahead and

Moreover, variable tolling is giving drivers a more reliable trip across the bridge. We are right on target.” Before tolling began, forecasts anticipated an initial 48 percent drop in traffic volume on SR 520. That projection matched actual traffic at the start of tolling but as expected, volume has steadily returned. SR 520 bridge traffic is now about 70 percent of pre-toll levels. Revenue is also on track. Since Dec. 29, 2011, SR 520 tolls have generated approximately $50 million in gross revenue. Tolling is exceeding other expectations, as well. Currently, 84 percent of all trips across the SR 520 bridge are paid with a Good To Go! account, about 12 percent higher than the original forecast of 72 percent. Through the end of November, there were more than 18 million tolled trips on SR 520.

Woman taps into passion for horses to help patients Horses are particularly powerful working with adolescents, she said. Some adolescents are reluctant to walk into her office and talk about their feelings, so the horse acts as a “great mediator” in that situation, she said. For people with an autism spectrum disorder, “horses can be really powerful working through relational or social skills, which people on the spectrum sometimes struggle with.” She noted that research shows how horses and people with autism spectrum disorders see the world similarly, in pictures rather than in coherent stories. “So oftentimes horses and people with autism connect in ways that are

Kelsey Devoille stands in the barn at her Bridle Trails business with one of her therapy horses, Poppy, an 8-year-old Irish Sport horse. Devoille says equine-assisted therapy is useful in helping people struggling with issues such as eating disorders and autism spectrum disorders. CARRIE RODRIGUEZ, Kirkland Reporter approach challenges in life,” said Devoille, who still competes and has her A rating in the United States Pony Club – the highest rating a rider can achieve in the sport. “Counseling doesn’t always have to be so serious or intimidating. This can really just be a different way for people to be able to look at their own growth and challenge themselves.” At Unbridled Counseling, clients can either opt for traditional talk therapy, or equine therapy. If they choose the latter, Devoille will introduce them to the three therapy horses she uses: 8-year-old Poppy, an Irish Sport, Arabian mix; 12-year-old Dublin, an Irish Sport horse; and 26-year-old Ria, a Morgan horse. She said her patients interact with the horses and can choose which horse to

stay with during subsequent visits. So why horses? Part of it, Devoille says, is because of their size. “They are huge, 1,000-plus-pound animals, so they are naturally intimidating,” she said, noting the horses’ size helps some of her clients with power and control issues. She said one of her clients had a difficult time standing up for herself with her family. When she interacted with the horse, “she really struggled pushing the horse away from her or sticking up for her space and so the entire first session, the client was unable to back the horse up,” noted Devoille. “I think the horse really recognized her hesitancy and pushed back a little bit.” However, the client was eventually able to control the horse and weave it

through an obstacle course. “It was amazing how the horse picked up on her need to be assertive that day and really rewarded her for that,” said Devoille. “Then the client was able to imagine how she could do that with other people in her life.” Horses are also intuitive and can pick up on certain cues that she may miss, she said. “When a client is anxious, horses act anxious,” she said. “It’s a great way for clients to see how their anxiety or fear is affecting the horse.” Devoille specializes in working with people with eating disorders and says that equine therapy is also a great way to work on topics like assertiveness or control that sometimes arise in recovering from an eating disorder.

Horses have surrounded Kelsey Devoille since she was a girl. She grew up in Duvall, where as a girl she rode horses and competed in three-day eventing, known as the horse triathlon. By the time she was in middle school, she taught other kids horseback riding. Devoille opened Next Phase Eventing, her Redmond-based business that specializes in training riders, while attending the University of Washington where she earned an undergraduate degree in finance and psychology. But through her work as a trainer and coach, she realized she wanted to do something more with her passions for horses and people. “Through that process, I recognized the impact that horses have on people, not just riding for competition, but also on their emotional well-being,” said Devoille. “I got to experience situations where my students were going through a very tough life event and I got to see how the horses helped them through that.” So she went to graduate school at Seattle Pacific, pursued her psychology degree and learned about the art of equine-assisted psychotherapy. The Kirkland resident opened Unbridled Counseling in the Bridle Trails neighborhood in June. Her practice offers traditional and equine-assisted therapy to youth and adults struggling with eating disorders, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety, depression and family issues. “Equine therapy can be a really unique and non-threatening way to

almost indescribable,” said Devoille. Horses have played a big part in her life, as well. Horses have helped her to focus in the “present moment and alleviate stress. My relationship with my horse also built selfconfidence during a time I was struggling to find my identity,” she said. “They are incredibly intuitive animals, so I feel like they really pick up on people’s emotional state … They’ve always been a huge support to me, not only through my business, but on a personal level.” So far, Devoille says business is going great. About half of her clients use traditional therapy, while [ more horse page 18 ]

Man connected with Bandidos motorcycle gang charged with extortion at Redmond business A Kirkland man connected with the notorious Bandidos motorcycle gang was charged on Dec. 27 for extorting a Redmond business owner of $57,500. Robert Dairold Golden’s bail was set for $500,000, along with his accomplice Robert Amahd Edwards III, who allegedly assisted in the extortion, which was set for $100,000. When Golden, 39, and Edwards, 35, allegedly entered a Redmond-based custom fishing-rod shop on Dec. 21 to unlawfully collect titles to the victim’s truck, trailer, boat and some dirt bikes, they had no idea that police had been granted the authority to intercept and record the meeting, according to charging documents filed in King County Superior Court. Members of the Redmond and Seattle Police Departments were waiting nearby and after they had collected enough evidence, the two were promptly arrested.

After the victim, a 61-year-old Kirkland resident, befriended Golden three years ago on their common fishing interest, Golden allegedly loaned the man $35,000 to kickstart the victim’s current business. Court documents indicate at the time of the loan, Golden offered the money because he had recently “come into a large amount of money and was able to make the loan with little or no conditions.” But a few months ago, Golden allegedly contacted the victim asking for the money back and the victim said he would find a way to get him the money in order to avoid trouble, according to court documents. When the victim didn’t comply, Golden and a man - thought to be the president of the North Seattle chapter of the Bandidos motorcycle gang - walked into the victim’s shop, looked around and left. When Golden showed up a week later in early December he allegedly told the victim that “the loan had been sold to the Bandidos and the man

who he brought in the prior week was the president of the group. His previous loan of $35,000 was now $57,000,” the documents continue. “Golden emphasized that the Bandidos would expect to be paid and would be in contact soon to discuss details,” documents say. Various forms of harassment allegedly continued and the victim grew increasingly concerned. As a way to oblige the Bandidos Seattle president, the victim “gave away” a $700 fly rod but still received warnings to “take care of it.” The calls from Golden persisted and during a conversation on Dec. 18, court documents indicate Golden allegedly told the victim “you’ve got til Friday or they’re going to come and take everything out of your shop and shut you down,” referring to the Bandidos gang members. The next day there was another phone conversation but this time police were present, taking notes: “You really understand what’s going on?” asked

Golden. “They get stuff, that’s what they do. They’re gonna shut the whole thing down, it’s not a joke… Bike clubs are not a joke. I do favors, collections for them. “That’s their money. They don’t care about you. They want the money. These people hurt people,” the documents continue. The conversation continued with Golden telling the victim to Google the Bandidos to see the extent of how far they would go to get what they wanted. Now, the amount owed was $57,500. On the looming Dec. 21 deadline police surrounded the victim’s shop physically and with electronic surveillance. Golden arrived with Edwards and spoke with the victim about the value of his truck. Golden made a few calls to determine the cost value, while Edwards was seen looking around the store and typing on the store computer, the documents continue. Golden eventually directed Edwards to take the victim’s truck around the back of the store to load a dirt bike

and trailer, the charges state. But when Edwards stepped out, he was met by police and arrested. Golden “fled to the back of the store” and ran about 50 yards before he was caught and arrested. The two were taken into custody but because their charges were filed after the three-day mark, they were let out shortly after, said a spokesman for the King County Prosecutor’s Office. Charging documents state Edwards, who is from Riverside, Calif., has no prior jail convictions, however, Golden’s criminal history indicates he’s had 23 prior bookings, resulting in 18 arrest warrants. Since 1992, Golden has been convicted of fourth-degree assault, involved in illegal drugs, second-degree theft and he’s violated a no-contact order for domestic violence. Golden and Edwards pleaded not guilty yesterday in King County Superior Court. Golden was released on bail. A case setting hearing for the pair is scheduled for Feb. 14.

RAECHEL DAWSON Kirkland Reporter

Redmond driver strikes parked car, hits fence A 44-year-old Redmond man was cited on Jan. 4 after crashing his Chevy pickup into a legally parked vehicle, then striking a retention pond fence in the 22100 block of Southeast 32nd Street in Sammamish. The accident happened around 1:25 p.m., when the man, who was driving westbound, said he was distracted by the sun in his eyes and adjusted his visor. After striking the parked vehicle, the man overcorrected, crossed both lanes and crashed into the chain-link fence. A witness who lives nearby said the driver appeared to be traveling at or near the speed limit at the time of the collision. The driver was cited for improper lane travel.

The most challenging part about getting her business started was the financial risk, including the high cost of insurance for using horses. But it’s all been worth it, she says. “I always knew how horses have affected me, but seeing the changes that have happened in my clients’ lives and the realizations and growth that has come from it is really exciting,” she said. “So it gives me hope that I’ll continue to be able to do work that I’m passionate about.” For more information, visit
