Trouble a brew? Walt Grisham, left, and Don Skelton, residents of University House in Issaquah, have known each other for 81 years, and now live five doors down the hall from each other. The two men lived in White Bluffs, Wash., a town that was condemned by the federal government to make way for the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

University House residents recall when government came and took their homes away THE WHOLE STORY


Don Skelton, 93, and Walt Grisham, 91 have breakfast and dinner together every day at University House in Issaquah. But more than their connection at the retirement home, they share a history that most people have never known. It was 1943 when the March 11 issue of the Kennewick Courier-Reporter carried the headline: “Richland, White Bluffs and Hanford area to be taken by massive war industry and mass meeting called at Richland to explain the war projects to residents.” However, nothing was really explained and residents were ordered out of their homes and off their lands. White Bluffs and Hanford were wiped off

Issaquah and University House residents Don Skelton and Walt Grisham experienced a piece of history very few know about in the eastern Washington town known as White Bluffs. For their whole tale, turn to page 7.

White Bluffs sar at the bend of the Columbia River, north of Richland. COURTESY, Google Maps the map to make way for the 640-square-mile Hanford Nuclear Reservation. It would be years before anyone knew what was going on at the ultra-secret facility. First Bank of White Bluffs is all that remains

in White Bluffs; Hanford High School is all that remains of the farm town. Today, Oregon Public television will be at University House to film Skelton and Grisham for an upcoming documentary on the eradication of White Bluffs and Hanford, a little piece of sad and tragic Washington state history that for 70 years was a huge secret – except to those who lived it.

Fog drifts through thick moss covered trees, in a world not far from the rush of city life. It’s a world so close yet so far away – the Issaquah Alps. But pink ribbons that read “timber harvest boundary” indicate what soon may happen: 216 acres of forest land clear cut by a logging company. The land – five contiguous parcels formerly owned by the Issaquah Camping Club, which filed bankruptcy, and an adjoining larger triangular piece, approximately 100 acres, owned by American West Bank – was bought in late December 2012 by Erickson Logging, Inc. The concern, beyond the trees, is flooding. The land includes the headwater fork of May Creek, which, has been plagued for decades with increasing flooding as storms create greater flows and are compounded by increased silt filling in the creek channel. “The flooding has become worse over many decades,” said Dave Kappler, president of the Issaquah Alps Trail Club. Kappler said more runoff will bring more silt, which will clog up the creek. Even now, looking at lowlying homes, there is standing water on the level ground, because the creek has no vertical drop for several miles. Mary Celigoy owns the Red Barn, a horse-boarding farm in May Valley. It is a 65acre spread that her parents operated as a dairy farm in the 1940s. She currently has about 25 horses on the property. “May Creek goes right through the middle,” she said of her property. “Flooding has SEE SQUAK, 3

LEGOS have certainly evolved over the years and increased in popularity with both the young and old. Over 300 kids participated in “Build it Sammamish,” on Saturday, Jan. 26 at Sammamish City Hall Commons. A first time for the event, Anne Schaefer, with the Sammamish Arts Commission, said they had to turn kids away. “It’s a way for kids to be creative and tie their piece into Sammamish,” Schaefer said. The Sammamish themed creations were for the kids entered in a competition; other tables were free-form. The guru of the even was Dan Parker, a LEGO Certified Professional, one of only 12 master LEGO artists worldwide with the qualification. “I’m the only one west of Chicago,” Parker said. With a studio in Tacoma called City Blocks, Parker has created custom pieces for everything from children’s educational workshops to corporate events. He said LEGOS are a creative medium, an art, that is not just limited to kids anymore.


He has a team that works with him, but he likes to stay very hands-on for quality control. “I’m very particular,” he said. Several stations were set up around the room, with Parker advising volunteers to be sure the LEGOS didn’t migrate from station to station. For example, tables were set up with LEGOS specific to themes such as castles, dinosaurs, Star Wars, Znap (engineering) and classic. “I just want to be sure people are happily building,” he said. Parker quit building with LEGOS when he was 10, picking it up again when he was 30-years-old. That was 22 years ago. He had worked as a research engineer, and could see the applications. “I thought about building custom furniture, gun-smithing, or LEGOS, and LEGOS won out.” He recently put together a display for the train show at Seattle’s Pacific Science Center, using 30,000 pieces. He’s also built an entire life-size nativity scene - all out of LEGOS. With all the LEGOS to work with, Rituja Indapure of Klahanie said “it feels like home.” Her son, Tanush Korder, 9, started building with LEGOS when he was 3, and has LEGOS all over the house, she said.

Around Town

What’s happening around Issaquah & Sammamish

Residents lend helping hand

Kellan Pryal, 8, has been building with LEGOS his whole life, he said. He was working on a castle, something he hadn’t built before. LINDA BALL, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter

Kellan Pryal, 8, has also been at it for years. He was at the castle table, creating his first castle. His family lives on the plateau. At the little kid’s station, tots played with bigger LEGOS, including little 1-year-old Victoria Davis, who practices at home with her big sister, Elizabeth, said their mom Carrie Davis of Sammamish. Kids competing for fun prizes had to bring their own LEGOS from home, and were at special tables with their names on placards. Duncan Barber, 10, is a fourth-grader at Christa McAuliffe

Elementary. He brought an entire duffel bag full of his own LEGOS. “I have 10 times more at home,” he said. He was working on a house structure, complete with a little computer inside. His mom, Leslie Barber, said he received the LEGO Death Star set for Christmas, which has 4,000 pieces and a 260-page instruction manual. He and his brother put it together in three days she said.

been an issue for a long time.” Celigoy said the increased development that has already occurred, has resulted in more runoff. And she worries about the even bigger picture. “The habitat, trees that are ancient – I’d hate to see that (logging) up there,” she said. Since the property is in unincorporated King County, a Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Forest Practices permit is in the process of being filed by Erickson. And it is less likely that a State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) review would be required due to DNRs lesser regulations for land use under a state forest practices permit law, according to the IATC. A SEPA review looks at the environmental impacts of projects and requires the submission of detailed mitigation plans prior to permit approval. Without the requirement for a SEPA, Kappler understands there will be no public notification required and the state could approve the permit within 30 days of submission without any formal process for hearing or public comment. Timber harvesting could then begin immediately. But maybe not. Kurt Erickson, of Erickson Logging, Inc., said he bought the property with the intention to log it, but he’s giving the county the opportunity to buy the land, if it can. He’s given King County six months to come up with a plan. “A developer offered me the same amount I am offering the county,” Erickson said. “That is the business we’re in, the timber industry. It’s pretty simple; either the county or someone else buys it.” Based in Eatonville, Wash., Erickson

Logging has been in business 28 years. It acquired the land when a developer went broke. The developer had submitted a plan to build 46 lots, but it was never approved. Erickson’s opinion is that logging and replanting is better than a development, but if the county could buy it, even better. “I have investors, people I have to report to, too,” he said. He said he’s told the county he’s willing to take part of the money now and part later, or even trade for other timbered property. “I’m flexible as much as I can be flexible,” he said. Kappler said the county has some money, but he said they are trying to piece something together and be as creative as possible to secure the land so it isn’t logged. Doug Williams, Media Relations Coordinator with the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, said the department is aware of community interest in the county acquiring the property. “We’ve been out and looked at it, and we have a number of decisions that need to be made before we move forward with acquisition,” Williams said. “We have not made any decisions yet whether we should apply for any grants, but we’d like to preserve this property.” The DNR is in the process of determining its land acquisition priorities for grants that would be available near the end of this year or early 2014. Williams said Erickson does seem willing to work with them, but ultimately “it’s his property.” Williams said Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park is the largest park in King County, with over 3,100 acres. Erickson’s property is just southeast of Cougar Mountain. Staff writer Linda Ball can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.

He’s been there before and he is seated once again, albeit for a short term. Joe Forkner was chosen by the Issaquah City Council to serve out the remainder of the term vacated by Mark Mullet, who was elected to the state Senate in District 5 in last November’s election. Seven candidates sought the position. Forkner has seven years prior experience on the Issaquah City Council, including during the previous attempt to annex Klahanie, a current issue. He’s also been very

visible in shaping the Central Issaquah Plan and attended all of the budget hearings for the 2013 budget. Forkner is a 22-year resident of Issaquah Joe Forkner who worked for the City of Issaquah from 1990-1997, first for operations and maintenance and then for the engineering department. “There were great skills in all the applicants,” said Mayor Ava Frisinger.

Discovering Harborview


recently spent a day at Harborview to learn what goes on there and see what’s new in the world of medicine. Talk about eye-opening. I knew Harborview had a busy emergency department, but didn’t realize that it handles about 60,000 ER admissions a year. That’s an average of 164 a day for you non-math majors. Harborview also is where you’ll find Dr. Benjamin Starnes, who performs non-invasive aortic endovascular grafting – a ground-breaking procedure that surgeons from around the world come here to see. I also met Hunter Hoffman, DirecCraig Groshart tor of the Virtual Reality Research Center at the UW who, along with his colleagues Dr. Dave Patterson and Sam Sharar, MD, found a way to lessen the pain burn patients endure as they undergo treatment. The team developed a virtual reality computer-animated game that lets patients throw snowballs at penguins, snowmen and igloos. The result is that the patients don’t feel as much pain as their wounds are dressed or their skin is stretched in therapy. For scientists around the world who doubted that could happen, Hoffman has the MRI scans to prove it. By the way, the UW’s Human Interface Technology Laboratory in Seattle is one of the largest VR research laboratories in the world. Then there was Dr. Brian Ross, executive director of the Institute for Simulation & Interprofessional Studies. In short, it means physicians practice techniques on dummies to keep their skills sharp and effective. But these aren’t the Resusci Annies of CPR days. They are so life-like that their pupils respond to light, they can “talk” to the doctors and their “life-threatening” conditions can be ramped up to challenge even the most skilled physician. Bottom line: if doctors can’t show proficiency on the dummies, they can’t do the technique on real patients. That was only part of the day. I left Harborview exhausted, but more aware of the world-class medicine that is being developed and performed here in our own backyard. I can’t wait to learn more. – Craig Groshart, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter ISSAQUAH | SAMMAMISH

Let’s showcase our town


ith three children all under age seven, I’m obligated to watch certain favorite kids’ movies over – seemingly hundreds of times. Without question, one of my all-time favorites is Disney/Pixar’s 2006 hit “Cars.” (If you know what tractor-tipping is, you can relate). The movie is about a small town on famed Route 66 that fights to identify its niche and welcome folks to town to spend their money and help the community succeed and survive. It’s a real heart-warmer. Matt Bott Cars’ Route 66 is a far cry from Issaquah/I-90 and certainly cartoonish, but here’s the point: a community with a unique sense of place shouldn’t shy away from boldly showcasing its unique assets and welcoming visitors to town. Issaquah is a unique Northwest community and a great way to showcase this is through “Welcome to Issaquah” signage. Have you ever noticed there’s nothing compelling on I-90 exit ramps or other thoroughfares into town that says you’ve officially arrived at Issaquah? This should change. In late January the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce’s Tourism Advisory Committee, under the adept leadership of Phil Morris, sent a supportive letter to the Issaquah City Council strongly encouraging the city to move forward with establishing “Welcome to Issaquah” signage.

In many communities, visitors pulling into town are greeted by a sign that proudly (and tastefully) invites them into their community, communicating the messages of: “Welcome…we are proud of our town…enjoy your stay…come back soon….and tell others about us.” Issaquah has this sense of place. Signage would say to travelers that we are more than a place to fill up for gas or grab a bite to eat on their way to Seattle or to skiing at Alpental. But signage is not only about community pride; it is also about economics. Properly invited in, new visitors discover Issaquah’s unique tourism treasurers: our family-friendly Cougar Mountain zoo, the famed Issaquah Fish Hatchery, Village Theatre, Boehm’s Chocolates, the historic downtown, Lake Sammamish State Park, Costco’s world headquarters, great restaurants and more. Many new visitors, wooed by a great first impression, become new residents and sometimes even new employers. Others simply depart with a greater sense of Issaquah’s unique brand, our compelling offerings, and our values. In any case, visitors will leave knowing Issaquah is much more than a long stretch of freeway along I-90. Guaranteed, welcome to Issaquah signage will make a positive difference for our community. Matthew Bott is the CEO of the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce. He writes on topics covering the economy, business success and community development.

The shootings at a Colorado movie theater (12 died and 58 were injured), at an Oregon mall (three were killed) and at a Connecticut elementary school (20 children died) all had something in common — assault rifles. Because of their ability to kill many people in a short amount of time, such weapons, and the sales of new ones, should be banned. In the Federal Assault Weapon Ban of 1994-2004, many loopholes allowed manufactures to continue making and selling assault weapons that Congress intended to ban. There should be a new, improved assault weapon ban. It should be stricter and more explicit. It should ban all weapons capable of holding more than 10 rounds and firing rapidly by pressing the trigger multiple times. The sale, assembly and modifications of new assault weapons should be banned except for the military and law enforcement. People who have assault weapons would be allowed to surrender them to law enforcement and receive a federal tax credit at the fair market value of the weapon. They would be allowed to sell their weapon to another private party, if both parties submit documentation to the federal government, and the buyer passes a background check before taking possession. The federal government should have the right to enter private property and inspect your assault weapon with 72 hours’ notice. This won’t violate the Second Amendment because citizens are still able to own assault weapons. I agree with the NRA’s statement that, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people,” but we can’t lock up every mentally ill person. Why do you think these murderers chose assault weapons? It’s because they knew it would kill many people in a short amount of time.

Innovators recognized Theme for 2013 Salmon Days revealed BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

The theme of this year’s Salmon Days will be “Streaming Live.” The name was revealed Jan. 24 at the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce’s Innovation in Issaquah lunch. Director of festivals Robin Kelley announced “Streaming Live” will take place Oct. 5-6. The main purpose of the luncheon was to recognize this year’s winning innovators in business in Issaquah, selected from 30 nominees. SanMar, which located its corporate headquarters to Issaquah last year, is a sportswear supplier with six locations across the U.S. The company imprints goods with customized logos. The

award was accepted by HR manager Sandy Garner and recruiter Kristie Georgell. Another winner was WISErg, which offers clean technology by taking food waste and turning it into fertilizer. The honor was accepted by Tim Robie. In the non-profit category, Village

Theater was honored for its productions that have earned national acclaim since 1979. Director of marketing Jamie Lilly accepted the award. Gary Kaplan, MD, Chairman and CEO of Virginia Mason Health Systems, was the keynote speaker. Kaplan spoke about Virginia Mason’s implementation of Lean production, also known as Toyota Production System, which is centered on preserving value by eliminating waste. Kaplan said health care, higher education and government are the three most difficult industries to change, but by adopting these principles Virginia Mason has inspired other health care facilities to come and see what its done. He and two colleagues from Virginia Mason had traveled to Japan, to the Toyota factory, to watch Lean principals at work, then adapted them to fit the health care model. “We opened our eyes to outside manufacturing businesses to adapt to change,” he said.

Sammamish plans to improve 244th Avenue, near Beaver Lake Park

Traveling near one of Sammamish’s more popular parks could soon be a lot smoother for cars, pedestrians and bicycles. City staff recently presented its plan to improve 244th Ave. S.E., near Beaver Lake Park, with the intent of adding bike lanes on both sides of the road between Southeast 24th Street and Southeast 32nd Street.

“There are two lanes in width and very little shoulder, if any,” said Public Works Director Laura Philpot, of the current condition. “I’ve actually used this as a non-motorized pedestrian and there is not a lot of room.” The proposed bike lane on the east side of the road, near Beaver Lake Park, would be separated with a landscape strip, which would double as an area to handle stormwater.

walk would be added to the other side of the landscaping. The west side of the road would simply contain a bike lane. Estimated costs for the project are just over $1.7 million and fall under the non-motorized improvement budget. The work would also free up 400 feet of parking on the east side of the road, enough for roughly 20 cars. There are potential obstacles to the project, including concerns from citizens with nearby driveways and the adjacent Williams Interstate Pipeline, which is expected to be upgraded soon.

pipeline company over the winter and spring in order to resolve concerns. There is also a potential need to replace a 52-inch culvert that allows Laughing Jacobs Creek to flow from the park, under the roadway. That could cost upwards of $80,000. “We are working to see if we can leave that intact and not have that be impacted. It is possible that we may be required to replace that as part of the project,” Philpot said. The goal for city staff is to have the project plan done by early July, bring the plan to the City Council and begin work in late July or early August.

Issaquah residents share story of White Bluffs The whole tale behind the front page story, ‘When White Bluffs disappeared’. BY linda ball

In 1943, Walt Grisham was in England, a ground crew member of the Army Air Corps, now the U.S. Air Force. “Uncle Sam gave me a greeting,” he said of being drafted. He had no idea his hometown was being evacuated until he came back in 1945. All he knew was what he saw in the London newspapers about an atomic program in the United States. When he tried to return to White Bluffs, which was at the bend of the Columbia River, north of Richland, he wasn’t allowed to go there. The land had become part of the Manhattan Project, a research and development program by the U.S. that produced the first atomic bomb during World War II. It was there that the plutonium was produced to make the bomb that obliterated Nagasaki, Japan, Aug. 9, 1945. Grisham’s family had moved to White Bluffs in 1931 so his dad, Joseph, could manage his uncle’s orchard. By the time the war came, all eight of his siblings had grown and left the nest, so only his parents remained in the home when it was taken by the government. “They got notice to be out,” Grisham said. “No help, no transportation, no money.” To add insult to injury, the government used assessors from eastern Washington and Montana to assess the land. Many of them didn’t have a grasp of the value. “They (the appraisers) were instructed to evaluate the property at half-value,” Grisham said. “They were to forget about the fences and wells and treat it like it’s bare land.” Even those who accepted an offer from the government didn’t receive their checks for 90 days or more. Grisham’s family home was pushed into the basement and burned. Orchards also were burned to clear the site. Even remains of approximately 177 people buried at the White Bluffs Cemetery were moved May 6, 1943 to the East Prosser

The White Bluffs Bank closed in the early 1940s before the government evacuation. The shell of the building is all that remains of White Bluffs. Photo courtesy of “Tales of Richland, White Bluffs and Hanford 1805-1943” by Martha Berry Parker.

Cemetery about 30 miles away. Skelton’s family arrived in White Bluffs in 1925, living there until 1943. His family remained in their home for a little over 90 days as their property wasn’t needed immediately. The home then sat there empty until the mid 1950s when it was moved down by the Columbia River with a “For Sale” sign placed on it. Eventually, it, too, was destroyed. “There was a lot of indiscriminate destruction,” Skelton said. Skelton said the government used immigrant prisoners to pick the fruit from the lush orchards; his family never saw any money for their fruit – he doesn’t know where the money went. Both men went to White Bluffs High School, but since Grisham was younger, the two really didn’t associate at the time. A football injury kept Skelton from being drafted, but he did go into the Civilian Conservation Corp, a New Deal program that existed from 1933 to 1943 for unemployed, unmarried men to work manual labor jobs related to the conservation and development of natural resources in rural areas.

He went on to Washington State University and studied agricultural engineering, graduating in 1945. Skelton would work with the Bureau of Reclamation project responsible for irrigating the Columbia River Basin before a lengthy career with the Corps of Engineers. When Grisham returned from the war in Europe, he went to the University of Idaho to become an educator. He taught school in Shoshone, Idaho, and later in Ft. Collins, Colo. while pursuing a master’s degree, finally returning to Washington where he taught high school in Pasco. It was upon returning to Washington in 1954 that he learned of annual reunions for former White Bluffs and Hanford residents. The gatherings were stopped about five or six years ago, he said. Too few survivors remain. Grisham doesn’t think the Hanford site ever will be totally clean. He said he knows of 75 acres that are permanently damaged, and extremely contaminated. Skelton said the tanks used to store plutonium waste always will be contaminated. An article in the Feb. 13, 1993 Centralia/Chehalis Chronicle states that Hanford was contaminated with some 440 billion gallons of liquid wastes, plus 177 steel storage tanks containing lethal levels of radioactivity. “Cleanup is expected to take more than 30 years and cost upwards of $50 billion,” the article states. It wasn’t until 1968 that the former residents of White Bluffs and Hanford were let back in to see their old land. Grisham said one of the first things he wanted to do was show his kids Black Sand Bar, a favorite beach on the river. They were swimming when a Hanford security officer told them to get out. The security officer radioed a call center, and listening in was Harry Anderson, who knew Grisham. He told the guard to leave them alone. “This was a neat little country town, surrounded by small farms, the power was provided by a dam at Priest Rapids,” Grisham said. “Everybody knew everybody.” Unfortunately, it also was what the government wanted. “It had all the elements they needed,” Grisham said, “good transportation, clean cold water (to cool the reactors). It was easy to set up a security system and there was lots of open space.” Made all the more possible by no farms – and no people.

Skyline students attend Obama’s Inauguration BY kevin endejan

Like most high-school seniors, Colton Stapper has read his share of United States history books over the years. But on Jan. 21, the Skyline student and 23 of his classmates gained a different perspective of the nation’s history — they got to participate in it. “It gave me this sense of actual patriotism that a lot of us don’t feel when we’re here at school,” said Stapper, who attended the 57th Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C. “To see it in the spirit of the moment, that was awesome.” The trip was the work of Skyline civics teacher Rob Rosemont, who for the second straight presidential cycle, brought a group of students to the nation’s capital. “Four years ago, I took 35 students,” Rosemont said. “We had such a great time, I vowed after that trip that I would do it again.” The four-day trip involved three days of sight-seeing, capped by the inauguration on Monday. The experience netted many memorable moments for the group of 20 girls and four boys, who ranged from freshmen to seniors. They went to sites ranging from the Capital building to the Holocaust Museum. “One of the best places we visited was Arlington Cemetery because my family has deep connections in the military and it’s really a lot to take in and see all those graves and know so many people fought for our country,” said senior Rachel

Front row, left to right: Rachel Carnes, Olga Esmeral, Hannah Green, Jessie Barrett, Cailey Grembowski, Jinny Choi, Rachel Clark, Sabrina Strom, Paulina Larrain, Olivia Rose. Middle row, left to right: Colton Stapper, Dorie Dalzell, Carly Rosenbaum, Syrah Gerth, Sarah Rosemont, Ail O’Daffer, Hannah-Rae Ernst, Tori Fuller, Maddy McHugh. Back row, left to right: Daniel Green, Monica Westlake, Lucy Worth, Blake Nelson, Spencer Douglas. contributed Carnes. Freshman Hannah-Rae Ernst concurred. “It was interesting to see all the care the government takes into making the memorials,” she said. Of course, the ultimate payoff came on Monday when the group got to watch

Barack Obama take his presidential oath. Using tickets donated by Congressman Dave Reichert’s office, the students were placed in the first wave of 250,000 people. There were more than 800,000 people total in attendance. “We were actually, as far as the commoners go, in the front of that section,”

Rosemont said. Junior Dorie Dalzell said she and a couple of others tried to inch their way closer to the stage, before eventually realizing the crowd was just too thick. “We just took as many pictures as we could from where we were at, and it was like, he’s a little dot, but that’s OK,” she said. Stapper said one of his highlights was hearing Beyonce sing the National Anthem — lip synching and all. But there is one image he will never forget. “The cool part was looking behind us and you could see there was people all the way to the Washington Monument and their flags were waving,” he said. “It was just like this sea of people.” Sophomore Sarah Rosemont admitted the group was tired after taking a redeye flight to the East Coast and pushing forward with three straight 12-hour days of sight-seeing. But there was nothing — not even being forced to park miles from the event — that would have stopped them. “I can honestly say, there are very few things I would get up at 4:30 in the morning and walk three-and-a-half miles for, but the Presidential Inauguration was worth it,” she said. Dalzell agreed. “It was so amazing to see, it was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity,” she said. Assistant editor Kevin Endejan can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. ext. 5054.

Picking up all the pieces A 2004 accident took the life of Brian Hill but at Eastside Catholic, they are making sure his memory lives on

ache, inspiring community support and eventually, at least some level of solace and a manageable if not pleasant normalcy.

Making new memories


When Eastside Catholic wrestling coach Dennis Reddinger watched his team finish third at its annual Brian Hill Invitational — a tournament the program has held for nearly a decade in early January — he had all the expected reactions. The Crusaders do not have quite the depth of last year’s team, perhaps the most successful in school history. But Reddinger couldn’t have been more pleased with Matt Iwicki and Alex Neale, who won the 126 and 285 pound divisions respectively, along with 170 pound runner-up Bradley Strode. But more than building experience for the postseason or garnering a level of respect among the 18 participating schools, Reddinger knew the most important part of the tournament was its power to, at least in some small way, help a family heal.

Shaken to the core The day was supposed to mark a new beginning. Jean Hill was on campus at Santa Clara University with her oldest child, daughter Julie, who had just finished her final year of high school at Eastside Catholic and was beginning the collegiate rite of passage of a year in the dorms. Then she got the call that changed her life forever. On the other line was her husband, Raymond, and the news was the worst imaginable. Her son Brian, a 16-year-old EC sophomore, and a pair of other teens had been on a stretch near Cougar Mountain known as “Roller-coaster Road” when the car left the road and struck a tree. “Your first reaction is, what hospital?”

Jean Hill stands in the living room of her Newport Hills home months after participating in another Brian Hill Invitational at Eastside Catholic. JOSH SUMAN, Issaquah &

Sammamish Reporter

Hill said. “When Harold said, well, no hospital...your world has just collapsed.” Brian and one of the passengers who was a student at another high school were killed the crash, leaving two families shaken and an entire community grieving in the wake.

Always smiling When Ron Cole thinks about Brian Hill, all he can see is the smile. Cole, an accomplished international wrestler and World Champion in his own right, coached Hill at Eastside Catholic and began hosting a tournament he called, “The Charging Rhino Classic,” which was meant to embody the competitive spirit and drive needed to succeed on the mat. When the 2004-05 wrestling season be-

gan months after Hill’s death, his former teammates and coaches, decided there was no better way to honor his life than by renaming the tournament, “The Brian Hill Invitational.” Cole said the scores of alumni and others who have been involved in the program over the years who return to volunteer for the tournament is a testament to Brian’s influence on those who knew him. “He was always fun, always happy, always smiling,” Cole said. “They keep on coming back and fulfilling their obligation to Brian.” For the Hills, the aftermath of Brian’s death was a blur of unimaginable heart-

Coaches and others from the school who knew Brian stopped by the house to comfort the family and in many cases ended up instead gaining strength from them. For many years, Jean Hill would still see a glimpse of her son in the back or profile of another boy walking down the street or through the mall. Like a punch in the gut, the sobering reality of Brian’s death always returns in those moments. But thanks at least in part to the dedication of his memory at Eastside Catholic, the family has continued to build memories even in the years after his death. “In all honesty, he was not a great athlete,” Jean said. “But he loved being part of that team. Those memories were so important to Brian.” From a summer retreat football camp to locker room banter, Jean said her son valued few things more than the camaraderie and friendship he found on Eastside Catholic athletic teams. When the family heard about the program’s desire to rename the tournament in Brian’s honor, they were immediately on-board. Nearly 10 years later, through a coaching transition, school relocation and a staff that has only a pair of holdovers from the time her own children attended EC, the tradition has become one of the strongest ties the school keeps to its past. The family returns each year to hand out medals to tournament winners and more importantly, create new memories of Brian. “It’s so fabulous to be in the audience and see boys walking around with Brian Hill T-shirts,” Hill said. “Here’s this new generation of kids, it’s their tradition now.” Issaquah/Sammamish sports reporter Josh Suman can be reached at 425-4535045 or
