Sediment tests in Kenmore show no contamination at most sites BY MATT PHELPS


est results from sediment samples taken from the shores of north Lake Washington last summer were released Thursday.

The Washington State Department of Ecology’s (DOE) initial view is that the majority of the 30 test sites were within an acceptable range. “The results look encouraging,” said DOE spokesman Larry Altose. “The

City of Bothell to pay $40,000 to marijuana grower BY MATT PHELPS

A Bothell man will receive nearly $40,000 from the City of Bothell in connection with an illegal search of the man’s home and seizure of property in 2008 during a raid on an illegal marijuana growing operation. The city will pay Eric Scott Levine $25,000 for the illegal search and seizure of property from his home and an additional $14,700 to be paid to his attorney for fees accrued during the past five years. U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman ordered the judgement on Wednesday as a result of a civil lawsuit filed against the Snohomish Coun-

ty and the City of Bothell. The warrant used to search the home in 2008 was deemed invalid because Bothell Police Det. A. Sean Ungvarsky submitted an unsworn affidavit to the Cascade District Court Commissioner Paul Moon, according to court documents. The Commissioner struck out the words “subscribed and sworn to before” on the affidavit. The Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney’s office then approved the warrant to search Levine’s residence. Bothell police also used an unsworn warrant to obtain electricity records from the Snohomish County Public Utility District No. 1, accord[ more GROWER page 3 ]

samples taken at Harbor Village and the North Lake Marina had elevated levels, but all the other levels were below the threshold.” The news was met with a positive reaction from Kenmore officials. “We’re encouraged by

these findings,” said Kenmore Mayor David Baker in a release. “The city made a worthwhile investment that succeeded in giving our community information and reassurance about the lake bottom, while clarifying where to direct further

environmental efforts.” Altose said that there is no state standard for sediment contaminants, so the DOE uses the cleanup standard for dry soil as a comparison, which is 11 parts per trillion. “That is getting down be-

low the levels of detection,” said Altose. “We think it is a fair and formal benchmark. The concentration of sediment (in the majority of testing areas) we consider clean.” Altose said the DOE will [ more TESTS page 5 ]

Comfy Concert, Jazz for Babies benefit in Bothell aim to help kids

It can be difficult as a parent to get out and attend a fun event with the family. Being the parent of a special needs child can make it nearly impossible.

Parents in the Bothell High School community, along with choral director Sheri Erickson and senior Thea Snow, are organizing two separate events for families to enjoy and support two good causes. The Comfy Concert and

Jazz for Babies will take place within six days of each other, but both will fill a special niche in the community.

Comfy Concert Marie Juchau’s daughter

Grace, who has autism, loves music. But like many special needs children, Grace has a tough time singing along or being disruptive during live performances. She can’t even go see her older siblings perform.

“We could tell that she was frustrated and sad that she could not stay for the concerts,” said Juchau. “Because of her love of music I wanted her to have the opportunity to be able to attend musical performances and not have to leave. I also

knew of other families who were in the same situation.” Juchau talked with Erickson, who had the idea for the Comfy Concert. The performance, by Bothell High School choral and band students, is for special [ more CONCERTS page 3 ]

ing to court records. The City of Bothell and Snohomish County have an inter-local agreement establishing a regional drug task force, which was a part of the search and attempted prosecution of Levine. Levine’s attorney, John Muenster, challenged the legality of the warrants under the Fourth Amendment of the state Constitution. As a result, the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office sought to dismiss the case. The prosecutor’s reason for dismal was that the “state is

unable to overcome challenge to the search warrant that would ultimately result in suppression of evidence.” In October, Ungvarsky argued that he thought he was issuing the warrant under oath because he had not taken an oath. “No reasonable officer could claim to be unaware of the basic rule,” said Pechman in legal documents. “Warrantless search of the home is presumptively unconstitutional.” The city seized more than 30 of Levine’s firearms and his home as profits from

the operation but both were eventually released to Levine. The criminal case against Levine was dismissed in 2010. During the search of the home 70 marijuana plants were seized from the basement. Levine’s ex-girlfriend turned him in to Bothell police while reporting him for assault. Levine was arrested on the assault charges and while in jail police searched his home for the marijuana plants. Levine is currently appealing his conviction on the assault charge.

needs kids. “I thought it would be nice to have an event just for (special needs kids),” said Erickson, who has a granddaughter with special needs. It is designed to be a place where special needs children can be themselves while enjoying a musical performance. They are encouraged to wiggle, sing and dance with the music. But most importantly, enjoy themselves. “I wish there were more things like this because we would be going to them all the time,” said Juchau, whose daughter performed in the concert last year. “Many families want to be able to take their kids to music events and can’t because their child just makes too much noise.” Juchau said that there were kids last year who wiggled in their seats and made noise. But it didn’t distract the students on stage. “It was cute to see the response of the students (on stage),” said Juchau. “They would just smile when

ents to feel like they don’t have to shush their kids.” The event also benefits the performers, as the music program participates in their annual solo ensemble competition two days later. The event allows the kids to get used to the butterflies of performing and being interrupted. “They often don’t get to perform before the contest so it is a nice warmup,” said Erickson. “it is good for them to learn how to play when they are distracted.” Organizers expect a few more people this year, as word has spread about the event throughout the Northshore School District and beyond. Last year the event drew 75 kids. Erickson said she thinks it is the only concert of its kind locally. “I know we will have more students performing this year,” said Erickson. “I think it is unique and it is so nice to have such a supportive community.” The Comfy Concert has a suggested donation of $5 per family.

ccording to FBI statistics more than two million homes across the United States are burglarized each year. Victims of burglaries reported an estimated $4.8 billion in lost property in 2011 with the average loss per homeowner being $2,185. Favorite items for criminals to steal are cash, jewelry, guns, watches and electronic devices. While burglary, by definition, is a crime where there is no direct confrontation by a criminal, almost everyone who has had a home burglarized knows that it can leave a family feeling violated, vulnerable and angry. Fortunately, there are a number of steps that homeowners can do to lessen their risk of becoming a victim of burglary. Taking the time to “harden” your home against intrusion can decrease the odds of being burglarized. Criminals want to be successful in committing their crime and many will bypass your home if it requires too much skill or time to break into. The Bothell Police Department (BPD) takes the investigation of burglary cases very seriously. During the last year, BPD has arrested a number of burglary suspects and has, on many occasions, recovered stolen items. We want to be able to identify and return property to the rightful owner but need your help. A few simple things that you can do that will increase the likelihood of getting your property back should your home be burglarized include taking the time to engrave your driver’s license number on your larger, valuable possessions, taking a video or photographs of your belongings, particularly your jewelry and other small valuables, and keeping the receipts from your larger purchases. Keep that information in a safe location such as a safety security box. Taking these practical steps will also help you with insurance claims in case of fire or flooding. The Bothell Police Department believes the security of you and your family is the top priority. Should you find yourself the victim of a burglary or some other crime, call 911. We are here to serve you.

Bothell police burglary tips 1. Lock your doors, even when you are at home. Remember this includes locking your garage door and back door. Burglars know that these doors often the weakest point of entry and provide the most cover from being observed. 2. Lock your windows or block them from fully opening. Most windows have latches, not locks and so homeowners should use secondary blocking devices to prevent sliding them open from the outside. Windows should be blocked so that they open no more than six inches. Make sure that a person can’t reach and remove the blocking device. 3. Trim shrubs/landscaping that obscures windows and doors. Taking this simple precaution will prevent a burglar from being able to hide from view while trying to enter your home. 4. Observe and report! Be observant. If you believe someone or something isn’t right, it probably isn’t. If you see something suspicious, call the police immediately. 5. Be a Good Neighbor Get to know the people who live near you and exchange contact information with them. Notify neighbors when you will be out of town.

Advice on how to find your next read One of my favorite things to do as a librarian is recommend books. I enjoyed it when Evelyn, a former volunteer, would frequently ask me for recommendations. Her tastes differ from mine so it was always a challenge. I prefer gritty, dark fiction and she likes gentle reads, often about British women vacationing on the coast of somewhere warm, or mysteries without violence. I had been able to find her quaint novels before and I made a few new recommendations based on books I had heard about.

One day I made a recommendation for a title that contained a slightly tasteless scene that put her off and she started asking others for recommendations. I was crushed. I should have used Novelist. Novelist is another database subscribed to by the King County Library system. When you visit the database page,, you will find it under the alphabetical list, or under the subject heading marked reading. Once

you log on with your card number and PIN, you can start searching for a new book. There are multiple ways to use the database. You can search for authors and titles, or browse by genre and subgenre or find a new series. It’s easy to look up a title you’ve enjoyed to find a read-alike list based off the book and author.

6. Keep your home well lit. A dark house can signal that no one is home. Connect some lamps to automatic timers to turn them on in the evening and off during the day. 7. Document your valuable property. Keep a detailed inventory of your valuable possessions, including description of the items, serial numbers, and original value (receipts if you have them). Keep a copy in a safe place away from home such as a safety deposit box or at a relative’s home. This is a good precaution in case of fires or other disasters too. Engrave all of your valuable property with your driver’s license number. Photograph jewelry and consider having expensive jewelry appraised. 8. Keep small valuables stored out of view. Do not leave cash, valuable jewelry, credit cards and other small valuables out where they are readily visible. 9. Install a quality Alarm System. Make sure the system has an audible component. Advertise your alarm system with decals and lawn signs. Make sure your alarm response call list is up to date. If you have it, use it! 10. Secure your vehicle. If you park your vehicle in the driveway, keep your garage door opener out of sight.

Once you have selected a title, you can read professional reviews on the book, Good Reads ratings and find book group discussion guides.

The oils include PCBs, phthalates and chlorinated hydrocarbons. “Phthalates are in plastics and they make (plastics) softer,” said Altose. “They are very common in our society and they do evaporate. They did appear in minute quantities.” Other chemicals tested for include pesticides and phenols, among many others. And although there were some results that were elevated, they were within the accepted limits. “A few of the samples taken at other places around the lake were actually

higher,” said Altose, referring to sites on the other side of Lake Washington. “You will never come to a place where there are no dioxins.” Altose said the main channel had a “low background level of dioxins.” As for the results at the North Lake Marina and Harbor Village, Altose said: “We don’t know where the dioxins are coming from so we need to identify the source. We have to find the source to be able to do the cleanup so that the contaminants do not come back … These reports will inform lots of decisions.”

have to wait for the report to be completed to assess the results from the North Lake Marina and Harbor Village. “Kenmore Industrial Park (KIP) does not seem to be the source (of contaminants) from these results,” said Altose. Kiewit/General/Manson is using a portion of Kenmore Yard, at 6423 N.E. 175th St., as a supplemental construction site for preparation and maintenance, component construction and barge transportation to the 520 bridge. The DOE issued a violation notice to KGM on Dec. 28 for sediment disturbance and Altose said that these results do not affect that notice. The notice states that the DOE has documented two occasions when KGM tugboats have caused visible sediment disturbances in the Kenmore Navigation Channel. KGM is now required to file a report within 30 days telling the DOE what steps they have done and will take to control such waste or pollution. The DOE will then inform KGM of the next steps. KIP, where Kenmore Yard is located, was once the site of the 45 acre Bayside Disposal Dump and landfill. Tests have confirmed that there are no polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs, a toxic environmental contaminant) at the site, according to officials. In all, 30 sites were sampled and checked for various contaminants. The sediment, and not the wa-

ter, was primarily sampled because the types of contaminants tested for adhere to the sediment and do not directly affect the water column. Ten water column samples were also taken. Altose said the 10 samples did not exceed state water quality standards. The locations tested include the Kenmore Navigation Channel, multiple sites around Kenmore Industrial Park, Harbor Village, tributary 0056 (the stream closest to Harbor Village), the North Lake Marina, Log Boom Park, Lyon Creek Park Waterfront Park in Lake Forest Park, alongside the Sammamish River and the boat launch near the Sammamish River Bridge, among others. Eleven of the sites were close to the shore. “They just waded out and used hand trowels to take the samples of the sediment,” said Altose. Samples taken closest to the shore reached a depth of four inches into the sediment. That four-inch depth is known as the benthic zone. It is the ecological region in the ocean or a lake where most living organisms are found. It is also the area in which humans or dogs would come in contact. The tests looked for a myriad of contaminants. “There was a variety of things they were testing for, but it was primarily dioxins,” said Altose. Specifically, the tests looked for a series of metals, chemicals, oils and

Two fires in Bothell in five days, cause $200,000 in damage By Carrie Rodriguez and Matt Phelps

Bothell Reporter

Two house fires in Bothell within five days resulted in $200,000 in damage last week. They are not believed to be related. A family with children was able to escape unharmed after their Bothell home caught fire Jan. 22. Fire crews responded to the residential structure fire located at 3204 200th Place S.E. in the Snohomish County Fire Protection District No. 10 area of Bothell at approximately 10 p.m.

Crews found smoke and flames coming from the garage of the two-story single family home. Firefighters were able to control the fire quickly and the damage estimated at $50,000 - was contained to the garage, said officials. Two vehicles were also damaged in the fire. “The big deal is it was knocked down quickly,” said Lisa Allen, public information officer for the City of Bothell Fire and E.M.S. “All of the rooms in the home are still livable.” Smoke detectors alerted the residents, including an undisclosed number of chil-

dren, to the fire. Fire officials urge residents to check the batteries in your smoke detectors twice each year. The cause of the fire was undetermined. Crews from the City of Bothell Fire and E.M.S., Northshore and Shoreline fire departments, Snohomish County Fire District No. 7 and Woodinville Fire & Rescue responded to the fire. The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office is handling the investigation. On Sunday, fire crews from four separate departments responded to a residential structure fire in

Bothell at approximately 11 p.m. A female homeowner sustained minor injuries but was able to get out of the house prior to crews arriving. There were no reports of injuries to firefighters. Crews from the City of Bothell Fire and E.M.S., Northshore Fire Department, Woodinville Fire and Rescue and Snohomish County Fire District No. 7 found smoke and flames visible upon arrival at the home, located at 3333 228th Street S.E. Firefighters were able to contain the fire quickly.

The single-family residence sustained extensive damage, estimated to be at least $150,000. The cause of the fire was determined to be inappropriate disposal of smoking materials near oxygen equipment. “Cigarettes and oxygen tanks are a very dangerous combination,” said City of Bothell Fire Marshal Frank Shasky, whose office is conducting the investigation. “As more and more people are bringing oxygen tanks into their homes, it is so important to understand the serious fire risks of smoking

near these highly flammable devices.” The City of Bothell Fire and E.M.S. strongly urges everyone to practice home escape routes frequently and identify a meeting place outside. Additionally, practice crawling low to the ground when escaping a fire. The number one killer in residential fires is smoke inhalation. Bothell Fire officials urge all families to protect themselves by having several working smoke alarms installed in the home and check the batteries at least twice a year.

A Bothell man pleaded guilty Wednesday to assaulting a Bothell police officer with his vehicle in connection with an incident on July 17. Joseph Thomas Medoro, 32, will face a maximum of 25 years in prison at sentencing next month for second-degree assault, attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle and unlawful possession of a firearm. He could face other charges in King County in connection with burglaries in Kirkland. Medoro attempted to ram his Pontiac Grand

Am into a Bothell police car during a traffic stop for expired tabs last summer. The officer was not in the car at the time and had drawn his weapon to take Medoro into custody. After ramming the police car, Medoro drove at the officer while attempting to flee from the scene, according to court documents. “(It) happened right after, when I was driving away and refused to immediately stop, drove in a reckless manner (running stop signs, speeding at high speeds, etc.),” stated Medoro in court documents. Medoro was able to elude police and the car was found abandoned in a

nearby neighborhood. After a short search, a police K9 tracked down Medoro in a nearby wooded area. Medoro was under community custody at the time for a previous conviction that included eluding police. He was also wanted on felony charges in connection with a rash of burglaries in Kirkland. Medoro had a pistol in the vehicle, which he knew was a violation of his prior felony conviction for possession of methamphetamines. Medoro was also found to have $4,000, a half pound of heroin, methamphetamines, a marijuana scale and other drug paraphernalia in his backpack when he was

arrested, court documents continued. The officer recognized Medoro during the traffic stop as someone he had dealt with before, according to court documents. A $20,000 fine could also accompany the sentencing in Snohomish County. David Gehrke, Medoro’s attorney, plans to provide the court with mental health information prior to sentencing that he said in court documents will explain some of his client’s recent and past issues with the law. His criminal history began when he was just 13 when he was charged with malicious mischief. In

1996, Medoro was convicted of his first felony for car theft when he was 15. Medoro has been convicted of 11 felonies since 2004. He was released from prison in December 2011 after serving nearly five years for possession of stolen property and methamphetamines. He also has three previous convictions for attempting to elude police. The state is requesting nearly 20 years in prison. The sentencing range is much more strict because the assault was perpetrated on a police officer in the line of duty, said Snohomish County Court prosecutors.

These funds support district career and college readiness efforts and are aimed at increasing student success rates as they enter into college and career following graduation. The funds were raised during the fall “All in for Kids” campaign, where

over 2,000 district families contributed to the cause. “We are excited about the success of the ‘All in for Kids’ campaign because it combines and multiplies the efforts of thousands of families and community members who go above and beyond for our students. Families gave gifts of between twenty and a hundred dollars, sometimes more, and that added up. Every gift counts and the impact is significant,” said Carmin Dalziel, Northshore Schools Foundation executive director. Funds granted will impact over 2,000 students this year and are anticipated to impact 10,500 students collectively over the life of the projects funded.

Historic year for Northshore high school basketball teams Bothell and Cedar Park boys, Inglemoor girls all ranked in top ten


This has been a historic year for three Northshore high school basketball teams. One team was ranked No. 1 in Washington state during the entire season by the Associated Press, while two other local teams are ranked in the state’s top 10.

Cougar boys are still No. 1 The Bothell High School boys basketball team won the

No. 1 seed to the 4A KingCo tournament along with the Crest Division title with a record of 18-2 overall and 13-1 in league play. It took two months for the team to lose its first game of the season on Jan. 21. The loss came during the prestigious King Holiday Hoopfest at Seattle Pacific University’s Brougham Pavilion. But it was the intensity of the 66-63 loss to the No. 1 ranked 3A team, Rainier Beach, that spectators will remember. The game was played in front of more than 2,500

spectators. The Martin Luther King Day event annually features the best teams in the state. Bothell senior Zach LaVine exemplified the spirit of the competition, finishing with a game high 34 points, despite waking up with a 103-degree temperature. The UCLA recruit fought hard during the fourth quarter to bring the Cougars back from an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit, scoring eight points during the final two minutes of the game. But the Cougars came up just short, as LaVine

missed two three-pointers inside of 20 seconds, including one at the buzzer. Josh Martin and Perrion Callendret contributed 12 points each for Bothell. “We learned that when you are down an important player (Kellen Webster) and have your top player (Zach LaVine) playing with a 103 temperature that the other players have to step up into roles that they don’t normally play,” said Bothell head coach Ron Bollinger. “When we are healthy we are the best team. We will continue to work on our overall team play, which will be vital when we are

American games. Bothell faced in-league rival Garfield the next night [ more RANKED page 11 ]

between our last regular season game (Feb. 5) and the next game, which will be for the Tri-District Championship (Feb. 16),” said Lynch. “That’s a long lay-off not to play so as a coaching staff we are working on creative ways

to make that a positive and keep our edge.” The team’s largest margin of victory this year came on Jan. 2 in an 81-43 romp against Cascade Christian. Despite the big victory, the [ more girls page 12 ]

From the baseline, that’s what you see; you see more than a game. You see passion. Regardless of losing, it was a good day to be a Bothell Cougar.

and picked up its second loss of the season 86-71. Callendret and LaVine tried to rescue the team by combining for 66 points, but only two other players scored for Bothell during the contest. “We were in a great position to win the Rainier Beach game and against Garfield we ran out of gas in the fourth quarter with the shorter bench,” said Bollinger. “The pressure experience for the bench will help us down the road. They were both games we can use in preparation for the play-offs.” Callendret’s 31 points were a season high for the University of Idaho commit. The Cougars got back on track to finish the season, beating league rival Inglemoor 96-67 on Jan. 25. “The biggest surprise this year would be the margin of victory in many games,” said Bollinger. “The King-Co conference is the best in the state with good teams and good coaches. We have been able to get the JV players in many games this year for some good experience. Not just the last minute but in some cases almost the whole quarter.” The Vikings will take the No. 2 seed from the Crest Division into the KingCo tournament. On Saturday, LaVine scored 39 points during an 88-48 victory against Redmond. LaVine’s best game of season, 41 points, came during a 94-70 win against Eastlake on Jan. 18. The senior has scored more than 30 points in a game 10 times this season and more than 20 points in all but two games. LaVine is one of the top scorers in the state, averaging better than 30 points per game.

biggest goal this year, despite having the best season in the school’s history. The Eagles were one of the last undefeated teams in the state until Tuesday when they lost to Cascade Christian. Despite the loss the team is 16-1 overall and ranked No. 6 in the state at the 1A level by the Associated Press. “One thing is that we’ve been able to stay healthy knock on wood - for the entire season,” said head coach Adam Lynch. “A few nicks and bruises along the way but nothing that has kept our guys out for an extended amount of time.” The team will have its chance to attain a main goal set in the off-season by making it to the state tournament. The Eagles will take the No. 1 seed from the 1A Nisqually league into the post season. “The biggest challenge for us will be to stay sharp

aftershock of the trembling basket. Adrenaline flowed through my veins during the last seconds of the fourth quarter, as if I was on the court myself. Sheer enjoyment, faces twisted in frustration, intense concentration and focus dominated the game, but bitter disappointment and glorious victory are always the result.

missed 3-point shot at the buzzer sealed the score at 63-66, as Bothell lost its first game of the year. There’s nothing quite like watching a sporting event from a place so close, you can walk onto the court with just one step. You don’t just watch the game, you hear it too; it was quite amusing to hear junior forward of Rainier Beach, Djuan Piper cuss out a referee within a personal distance, earning him a technical foul. Only a handful of people got the opportunity to witness the full magnitude of LaVine’s dunks and feel the

...obituaries Evelyn Bosker Porter February 14, 1914 – January 7, 2013

Evelyn Cora Wiltse was born to Clarence H. and Louise (Weinert) Wiltse on Valentine’s Day, 1914, in Falls City, Nebraska, her home until her college graduation. The youngest of the family, she had two sisters, Gertrude Bauer Smith and Mildred Holbein, and two brothers, Sherman Wiltse and Irving F. Wiltse. Education was very important to the Wiltse family; all the children graduated from college, very unusual for the time. After graduating from the University of Nebraska in 1936, Evelyn began a teaching career that spanned thirty years. Her early years of teaching were in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Falls City, Nebraska, and Charlevoix, Michigan. In 1944 Evelyn accepted a teaching position in Traverse City, Michigan, which became her home for the next 46 years. Evelyn married Edwin P. Bosker in 1949, joining Ed and his two teenage daughters, Katherine (Kit) and Freda, and their welcoming extended family. The couple spent forty-one happy years together in Traverse City, Michigan, and in 1966 established a winter home in Homestead, Florida. After Ed Bosker’s death in 1990, Evelyn relocated to Kenmore, Washington, to live with her sister, Mildred Holbein; she remained in the area for the rest of her life. Evelyn’s musical talents played a central role in her life from her youth, when she won honors as a cellist in high school and college. Throughout her life she played the cello in ensembles and orchestras, and her amazing ability on the piano and organ gave pleasure to family, friends, her church, and community wherever she lived. In addition to her gifts of music, Evelyn’s great legacy was to the hundreds of students she taught and so positively influenced over her 30-year teaching career. Throughout her nearly 99 years, Evelyn made and kept many close friends in every place she lived. All who knew her will miss her caring and cheerful presence in their lives. Evelyn is survived by her stepdaughter Freda Bosker Sprietsma and grandchildren Janet Gifford Brown, Brian Elbrecht, and Steven Elbrecht. Her stepdaughter Katherine (Kit) Bosker Gifford died in December 2011. In 2002 Evelyn married William H. Porter, Jr. Evelyn and Bill enjoyed several years together before his death in 2008. Evelyn’s memorial service will be at 2:00 pm on Saturday, February 23, 2013, at Northlake Lutheran Church, 6620 Northeast 185th Street, Kenmore, WA 98028. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Evelyn’s memory to Grand Traverse Musicale, P.O. Box 2121, Traverse City, MI 49685, where gifts will be used for scholarships for young musicians in the Grand Traverse area. 732034

mong the sea of 2,500-plus fans at the Royal Brougham Pavilion at Seattle Pacific University, Bothell High School students eagerly anticipate the upcoming game between the Cougars and the Rainier Beach Vikings. This match-up was the highlight of the King Holiday Hoopfest on Jan. 21, an event hosted to fundraise for the King County Boys and Girls

Club and Friends of Hoop. While fans desperately searched for seats in the bleachers, I found the optimal place to watch the game on the baseline. This wasn’t a Lakers’ game but the pace and intensity of both the Cougars and the Vikings sure made it seem like one. From the second that junior forward Josh Martin won the tipoff, the intensity never backed down. However, the Vikings scored the first couple of points and the Cougars just couldn’t

Despite the loss, UCLA commit and senior guard Zach LaVine led his team by demonstrating his agility and showing his awe-inspiring dunks for the fans. The game boiled down to the last 37 seconds of the fourth quarter, filled with fouls, freethrows, turnovers and comebacks. With less than a minute to go and five points down, the Cougars managed to close the deficit with the help of LaVine. A
