Five robbery suspects charged in three-state crime spree BY RAECHEL DAWSON


ive people suspected of robbing several banks in three states – including a Kirkland Wells Fargo Bank last December – were arrested on federal bank robbery charges on Jan. 31. Tacoma resident Anthony V. Mosley, 46, and four California residents -

Kevin L. Brown, 38; Curtis W. Smith, 22; Douglas L. Smith, 22; Jeanine M. Daniels, 32 – are believed to be responsible for the Kirkland Wells Fargo Bank robbery at 6615 132nd Ave. N.E. on Dec. 20, 2012. That night, three men entered the bank wearing loose clothing and face covers. Two suspects jumped over the teller counter and

one stayed in the lobby as they stole approximately $32,000 in 90 seconds, according to the federal complaint documents. It was the suspects’ last robbery. The FBI South Sound Gang Task Force initially arrested the suspects on state bank robbery charges on Dec. 22, 2012 after they tracked the suspects to a Greyhound bus station

in Olympia. The group planned to board the bus that afternoon to make a trip to Los Angles, but never made it. After the FBI alerted the bus station of the robbers’ descriptions, one employee called police to let them know “three black men and one black woman” had come to the bus station in search of tickets to Los

Angeles, according to the documents, but the bus was full and they bought tickets for a later date. The FBI surrounded the area on Dec. 22, 2012, and after they saw Mosley and four other people exit his vehicle, officers arrested them. Mosley’s criminal history reveals he was convicted of bank robbery in 1998. One of his conspirators

Kirkland Mayor Joan McBride announced this week that she will not run for reelection on the Kirkland City Council after her December term expiration and that she will instead retire after 21 years of public service. “I am never going to quit Kirkland when it’s

house located at the 11000 block of Northeast 41st Drive went up in flames but Kirkland’s engine 22 contained the fire to that area and safely put it out. Jeffrey said Bellevue and Redmond firefighters assisted in resolving the incident. A total of four Kirkland fire units, one Bellevue fire unit and one Redmond fire unit responded to the accident. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. St. A 23-year-old man was taken into custody after he broke a Lover’s Package window and stole several sex toys.

Curtis is a convicted felon and also revealed he had stabbed a person while in prison and received solitary confinement as punishment, according to documents. Curtis claimed he does not know the people he was arrested with and that he had the large amount of money because “he had come to Washington to sell information on how to make methamphetamine,” the documents continue. Douglas, presumed to be Curtis’s cousin, is also a convicted felon out of California. He was arrested with $4,000 on him, but claims he “found the money on the street.” Investigators are searching for two other suspects from California: Charles A. Williams, 39, and Janalisa

Estrada, 33, on an arrest warrant. Not only are the seven suspects connected to the Kirkland bank robbery, but the Task Force believes they robbed a US Bank branch in Lakewood, a Wells Fargo branch in Seattle and a Federal Way Washington Federal Bank. The group was also allegedly involved in at least 10 bank robberies in Michigan in 2011-2012 and one Ohio bank robbery in 2012. The five arrested suspects had their initial court appearance at the U.S. District Court, Western District of Washington on Jan. 31. The Lakewood Police Department’s Gang Unit, the FBI Seattle Safe Streets Task Force and FBI offices in Ann Arbor, Toledo and Los Angeles joined forces in the investigation.

Nearly a month after the accident, Zimmerman, his wife, people from ADT, Kirkland firefighters and camera crews from local news outlets stood in his living room on Feb. 1 waiting for Barrett to come out. Holding a bouquet of yellow roses, Zimmerman stretched out his arms as he and Barrett embraced. The cameras clicked. Zimmerman and his wife requested to meet Barrett, who flew from Florida, so that they could thank her for her quick response. “I feel great about it, being located in Florida and then to save a life all the way in Washington, it’s really exciting,” Barrett said. “I recently started (working for ADT) in November of last year so for this right here to be happening as soon as it did, I’m very excited.” ADT Chief Innovation Officer Arthur Orduna of Boca Raton, Fla. presented the Life Saver Award to Barrett, two Seattle ADT

City’s proposed Section 8 measure would prohibit discrimination


he City of Kirkland is considering an ordinance that would prohibit a landlord from refusing to rent to a tenant solely based upon the applicant’s use of Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers. Recent community feedback suggests that there may be misunderstandings about the purpose of the ordinance. To allow time for additional education and community input, the draft ordinance has been moved from the Feb. 19 to the March 19 city council meeting and the city will host a second community meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. Feb. 26 at City Hall in the Peter Kirk room. The Section 8 Housing Voucher Program is funded by the federal government and administered by local housing authorities to assist lowincome families, the elderly and the disabled to afford housing in the private market. For Kirkland, the King County Housing Authority oversees the program. Section 8 participants pay a percentage of their household income for rent and utilities. Through a voucher system, the housing authority pays the difference between the portion of the tenant’s rent and the amount requested by the landlord. The ordinance Kirkland is considering would require landlords to use the same criteria for Section 8 renters that they apply to any other prospective tenant. Landlords may use their standard screening process, such as rental and credit history checks, and may retain existing rental practices for deposits and rental agreements. Landlords are not Eric Shields

required to change how they operate their property. Any property that has rents higher than the rent limits established by the King County Housing Authority would not be required to lower rents to make units available to Section 8 participants. The program has administrative requirements such as an initial minimum lease period and property inspections. However, landlords who do not normally use the required lease period or who are unable to make any noted repairs, will not be required to participate in the program. In November 2012, the council was presented with the draft ordinance and postponed action to allow for more outreach and education. The city erred in not providing adequate notice to some participants for a community meeting held on Jan. 23, but more than 25 attendees, including Kirkland residents, landlords, property managers,

and housing advocates, shared their thoughts on the proposed ordinance. The city committed to hosting another community meeting if needed. Kirkland’s proposed legislation supports the council’s goal of maintaining opportunities for households of all income levels and needs. If approved, Kirkland joins Bellevue, Redmond, Seattle and King County in adopting this legislation. The city is committed to seeing that all voices are heard and considered in this decision. Community members and stakeholders are invited to attend the next community meeting, the council meeting or send comments to the council through Dawn Nelson, Planning and Community Development, at or 425-5873230.

Eric Shields is the director for the City of Kirkland Planning and Community Development Department.

Panhandlers should clean up after themselves Even though your recent article on these two panhandling brothers changed my outlook on why they personally may be at that corner every day, year in, year out, I do have an issue with it. The one gentlemen is quite messy and leaves behind garbage at his little station. Now if you or I threw garbage on the street or highway while driving and got caught, we would be fined for littering. That fine is pretty steep. Obviously, there is no such regulation in place for this gentleman, as he has continued to do so. Every now and than it gets cleaned up but not daily. I have even seen blankets and cardboard left behind in the ivy after he has left his spot for the day. I would ask that he be aware of his surroundings and be steward to the environment and keep it clean. Pick up after yourself every day – not just whenever.

Also, I agree with the comment made in this article about the use of cell phones. Furthermore, I have witnessed the lady who is sometimes with them or near them using a credit card at the movie rental box in a grocery store close by. So to me things don’t quite add up. I wish them all well, and hope that life will become easier for them. And oh, by the way, my company does hire older workers. They are an integral part of our work community. Surely, my company is not the only one that does. So fellows, don’t just listen to the employee at Work Source. Yes, it’s tougher to get a job once you are past 40, but it is possible! I personally know of many who have experienced that. Just keep trying to get a job and don’t give up!

Panhandling article puts a face to homelessness I am a longtime resident of Kirkland and really enjoyed your article on

panhandling in Kirkland. I have been driving by Jim in the Totem Lake area now for a while but had not realized he had been there three years. The article was nice because it gave a story and a name to someone I see almost every day driving on to 405. I have learned not to judge people because I have not walked in their shoes. This article confirmed my convictions. All of us have a story and it is nice to see stories from all types of different economic backgrounds. I think a big fear for a lot of us is being homeless and some of us are just a paycheck away. This article puts a face and name to homelessness and takes some of the stereotypes away. I believe that everyone deserves respect. I like a person not based on their character and not their personal wealth. I have lived on the Eastside my whole life and have never seen so many homeless people. I used to see homelessness in downtown Seattle but never in Kirkland or Bellevue. I have a friend who is homeless and believes the annual King County homeless count is way off and there

are many more people on the Eastside who were not accounted for. Hopefully as the economy improves we will see a drop in homelessness, but in the meantime let’s all have compassion for one another.

Author, 95, is epitome of ‘greatest generation’ BY MARIKA PRICE UW News Lab


ink Kaiser is not a believer of taking or getting breaks. “While going to high school, my brother and I built a house in our spare time,” he says with a wide grin and adds, “It’s still standing.” In his new book, “What Became of the Sundance Kids,” he tells about his life in Sundance, a small town in Wyoming, and his travels to Kirkland. Growing up during the Great Depression with seven siblings and an absent father, Kaiser, now 95, had to mature fast. At 10, he got his first job helping an elderly Civil War widow with her chores. He earned $1 a week. “She really depended on me. I would work all day Saturday to make sure she had enough wood on Sunday, my day off,” said Kaiser. Since then, he has not stopped working.

Wyoming upbringing Before serving in World War II as a Navy pilot,

the Wyoming native did manual labor in the corn and grain fields to help with the sharecropping. “I drove the tractor because my foot couldn’t reach the pedal on the binder,” he says of the wheat threshing machine. Like most people during those years, his survival depended on improvisation. Whether he was selling cheese from cows or fur from muskrats, Kaiser turned hardship into creative employment opportunities. “We had rough times, but hard work was a way to come out of them,” says Kaiser. According to Virginia, his wife of 63 years, determination in combination with his honest nature was key to his success. “The locals would leave him in charge of the gas station just because they trusted him,” she says proudly.

Leaving the homestead After he finished high school, Kaiser and his brother rode a freight train to travel from the homestead to Kirkland.

“It was not exactly safe. But it was a big adventure,” says Kaiser. While his brother stayed in Washington, Kaiser went back to Wyoming for college and he wears a University of Wyoming belt to show for it. However, he was drafted after one quarter of school. Kaiser served three years during World War II and was stationed five years later in Japan. Upon arrival back in Washington state, the war vet instructed a Navy pilot program and made a living as a chicken rancher, home builder and shipyard worker. Thanks to years of making quick judgments, he received the highest score on the civil service exam and became Kirkland’s postmaster in 1962. “The test required a different type of logic. There’s not always a right answer, but there is a best answer,” says Kaiser.

Settling in Kirkland The longtime Kirkland resident lives with Virginia and his dog, Tiger,

in the house he built over five decades ago. Before Walgreens and McDonalds moved in, he says the city felt smaller and more personal. Virginia adds, “We used to know everybody. From the neighbors to the people who owned the hardware stores.” Despite development, the couple agrees the friendly people make it home. Kaiser celebrated his 95th birthday last month. Still active, he works out three days a week, gardens, enjoys monthly breakfast outings with the group “The Old Timers” and writes books. Most recently, he wrote “What Became of the Sundance Kids.” The new book is in honor of his mother, whom Kaiser credits for his success. “She was insistent about education,” he says. “I got interrupted with the war. But my pilot’s license was somewhat of a substitute.” Kaiser adopted this school-first mentality and his son Steve, 55, says, “In our family we never believed ignorance was bliss.” In a previous book, he


Link Kaiser, 95, poses with his new book “What Became of the Sundance Kids.” MARIKA PRICE, UW News Lab also compiled a family cookbook and wrote about his time at war in “A Call to Active Duty.” The author hopes to inspire others who are going through economic hardship with his book. “We went through a lot of suffering,” Kaiser says, “but we got through it all right.”

City buys 6 acres of land, furthers FHNA’s preservation goals BY RAECHEL DAWSON


he Kirkland City Council approved the purchase of a 6 acre piece of land, deemed the Inglemoor Highlands greenbelt, in eastern Finn Hill Tuesday that will help preserve the neighborhood’s natural areas. The acquisition can be credited to the Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance (FHNA) when CITY board members brought the forested ravine to the city’s attention last May. “When the Denny Creek Neighborhood Alliance was looking to transition to become the neighborhood association for Finn Hill, one of the things we wanted to make sure was that we were looking out for all of the neighborhood,” said Jon Pascal, FHNA member who serves as vice chair on Kirkland’s Planning Commission. “(We’re) looking for opportunities primarily for open space

preservation and public ownership and land … We took a tour with a bunch of board members (to look) at different areas of Finn Hill and we came across this area.” Seven months later, city officials bought the land for $4,700 at a December 2012 auction, using funds from surface water management. “The city saw this more as a surface water management opportunity to maintain this corridor because it is important to drain the water (and preserve) water quality,” Pascal said. Jenny Gaus, a surface water engineer supervisor with the city, said there are several drainage pipes in the land, and public ownership will make it easier to maintain those. The land was formerly owned by a Spokane woman, who had apparently stopped paying taxes three years ago. Melissa Dokoozian, a homeowner whose house sits atop the ravine, said the woman once came to

had failed as an elected official had the South Kirkland Park & Ride Transit Oriented Development not gone through because it “hits everything our region cares about.” Annexation, AAA credit ratings, clean audits, the purchase of Kirkland’s section of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad, and the passage of the park and road maintenance levies are all among her biggest highlights as mayor. But her focus on Kirkland’s Totem Lake neighborhood took her as far as flying to Los Angeles, Calif. to speak with key property owners on her own dime with Councilwoman Amy Walen. “We can’t ignore our primary business district,” she said. “They are large property owners.” But with accomplishments and highlights also come challenging tasks. As the economy took a downturn, McBride said planning for annexation during their “salad days” was difficult, but assures that it was worth it. “The folks in the annexation area enjoy a much better level of public safety. They have a voice in their city, and let me tell you, they’re using it too.” Although McBride wouldn’t comment on the Potala Village controversy because it’s in litigation, she did say Kirkland staff and council members extended themselves to try and hear all sides for many months. “Whether anyone sees that as the results were good (or) the results were bad, at least our arms were open and our ears were attuned to everyone’s concerns,” McBride said. A Kirklander since 9 years old, McBride spent her grade school years at the former Central Elementary, Kirkland Junior High and Lake Washington High School. She graduated from Evergreen State College after studying women’s studies and poetry

her home asking to look at the property with hopes to develop, but as soon as she saw it, it seems as though she changed her mind. Pascal speculates she stopped paying taxes because the land wouldn’t amass any real value due to its unique terrain. The 6 acres house Douglas firs, western hemlocks, red cedars and maple trees at the base of the ravine. The trees surround Juanita Creek and is home to deer, raccoons, coyotes, beavers and wild fox – among others. “To have cedars, firs and hemlocks is actually somewhat distinctive of the Holmes Point area,” said former outdoor educator and FHNA member Ellen Haas. “It’s good diversity.” Pascal said FHNA board members have prepared a preliminary list of high value areas, such as open space and park land, that they hope to work with the city on in the future as more park levy funds become available. Members hope to “help meet the city’s goal of providing

(she’s an up and coming poet on the side). But she credits her ability to say “no” to a barmaid job she worked at after college. “I had just turned 21 and I was such a sweet and nice girl,” McBride said with a smirk. “I was taught a young lady says yes as often as she can, even if she’s asked to do things or people invade her space. But I learned about personal space and saying ‘no’ and meaning it.” McBride spent much of her time as a full-time mother after college, but joining the PTA and volunteering with her Holy Family Catholic Church led her to choose a path toward politics. After lobbying for the Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC) for her church, she took the initiative to speak to Congressional Rep. Maria Cantwell. “I had been training for weeks and I was so excited, I knew she’d support it, but this was my time to talk to her and give her reasons to be more supportive, blah blah blah,” she laughs. “I go to her office, I’ve got 15 minutes I realize … I start to talk and she blows me off just like that.” Understanding she couldn’t be mad, she thought “why don’t I just be the person that takes the vote?” Lobbying for the Lakeview PTA to secure certain measures in a state pedestrian crosswalk bill also helped her connect the idea of land use with children safety, quality of life and neighborhoods. McBride then joined the Houghton Community Council and served two terms as chair. It was during this position that she holds her only regret: Voting to reject the expansion request from the Lake Washington School District offices, which were located in Houghton at the time. “I had reservations at the time and I’ve forgiven myself because it really wasn’t our

an active park within a quarter mile distance to all residents,” according to the FHNA website. “It’s a good example of being opportunistic and working with the city, really embracing the Finn Hill area and understanding what our wants and

needs are,” said Pascal. “I think there’s opportunities to band together to maintain these areas the best we can.” The property joins 16 acres of Kirkland-owned land, resulting in 22 acres of public open space in the city.

final decision … but a more experienced council member, and I was brand new, would have had an idea of what Kirkland needs in order to have a strong regional voice.” Although, she does note it was also a good thing because Emerson High School (formerly BEST High School) came from the school district’s move to Redmond. In 1998, McBride took office as a council member on the Kirkland City Council and four years later, as deputy mayor, which she would serve for 10 years before becoming mayor. “Especially after I got on the city council, (I thought) ‘gosh, what better way to teach my daughter but to also teach my son, we can make a difference in our neighborhood. We’re responsible for the quality of life,’” she said. “They had seen me primarily as a mother for 14 years. They hadn’t experienced me in any other way. And it was good for them to learn about advocacy and that housewives and mothers are powerful.” Former Councilman Santos Contreras likens McBride’s growth to U.S. Sen. Patty Murray’s. “It was really fun to watch her grow and develop,” said Contreras, who served on the city council with her. “I thought of her as the ‘most improved player.’” When she was elected mayor, she was really happy and ready for the job. “I was happy and I was really pleased that someone who went to school in Kirkland and had been a bit, shall I say – a wallflower – to put it kindly, ended up as mayor. At my 40th high school reunion, they were surprised!” she laughs. Deputy Mayor Doreen Marchione said McBride has always loved her job and rarely misses her duties ranging from ribbon cuttings to meetings with regional

leaders. Even though McBride said she will miss being a part of the city fabric in an intimate and knowledgeable way, she expects redefining herself as a retired Kirkland mayor will be an adventure and hopes to travel to Paris, France. She won’t, however, miss reading those long 200-500 page council packets and staring at the computer for extended periods of time. This year she looks forward to seeing work on the Cross Kirkland Corridor, finding money for the 132nd interchange, and a flourishing Totem Lake neighborhood – including its forgotten lake. “There is actually a Totem Lake in Kirkland,” she says of the lake that’s owned by a “quasi governmental organization.” “I would love to see the transfer of that lake to Kirkland and I would love to see us acquire some property around there so that we can build a park.” Totem Lake is the only Kirkland neighborhood without a park, and McBride says having a park will build that “sense of place.” As for the next mayor, McBride simply advises to stay true to the promises made as council members and have some fun. “If you do your job right, you do all the research, you make your decision and then you go home and you can go to sleep because your conscience is clear,” she said. “Kirkland is a progressive and welcoming town and that means welcoming people from all walks of life, to businesses, and opinions might be different, but progressively, we move forward and get better with every step along the way.” McBride said she plans on staying involved with the city in some capacity after retirement but the future is open and it is “yet to be seen.”

House divided on K-12 school funding priority BY KYLEE ZABEL WNPA Olympia News Bureau

A showdown on the House floor Feb. 1 over an amendment offered by Republicans to operating rules for the House of Representatives, which would create a separate budget for K-12 education funding, provoked Enumclaw Rep. Cathy Dahlquist (R-31st District, Enumclaw) to ask, “Where has the majority party been the last 10 years?” Democrats, who are in the majority, rejected the Republican proposal to House Resolution 4608 in a 52-41 roll-call party-line vote. The proposal, known as “Fund Education First,” would have required a separate budget to be formed for public education and would require it to be funded before

State decision, the Washington State Supreme Court unanimously declared that the Legislature must meet its 2018 funding mandate outlined in Engrossed Substitute House Bill (ESHB) 2261 that was passed in 2010 and signed into law by Gov. Chris Gregoire. Funding measures include the state allocating more than $9,000 per student per year, paying 95 percent of pupil transportation costs, reducing class sizes, funding full-day kindergarten and providing monies for supplies, maintenance and operating costs. More than $10,000 is being spent now on each student

annually by a combination of state and federal funding. However, Hunter stated that the Republican proposal is nothing but superficial compliance. “It’s a waste of time and will distract the public,” he said. Rep. Gary Alexander (R-2nd District, Olympia) maintained that “Fund Education First” is more than a Republican slogan. “It’s not going to delay the process,” he said. “We’ve already demonstrated we can do this in a very responsible way and in a very timely way.” But Rep. Timm Ormsby (D-3rd District, Spokane) says he’d rather fund education right, than first. He stated that for some Washington students and families, realities of hunger, lack of

shelter and poor health can take precedence over concerns for education. “We have a long history of knowing that separate is not equal,” he said. “We (need to) fund education in the context of all of our other obligations, not separate.” Two freshman legislators, Rep. Drew MacEwen (R-35th District, Union) and Rep. Chad Magendanz (R-5th District, Issaquah), quoted President Obama as claiming a world-class education is the solution to poverty. “The path out of poverty is a quality education,” said MacEwen. “Let us say to the children in Washington that we, in the House, will stop holding education funding hostage to other political needs.”

HB 1575 ends a require-

Auditors, as well as citizens, would still have the option of receiving notifications and assessments through traditional mail. The legislation just gives them the

freedom to save money on printing and paper. Finally, HB 1268 would help city and county governments purchase goods locally by loosening restrictions on contract bidding. Currently, local governments must purchase goods from the bidder who offers the cheapest contract, which is often determined by the local tax

rates on the business. Springer’s bill would allow bids to be considered before tax. Doing so would put businesses around the state on more equal footing and offer local governments more options for purchasing from businesses in their area. All three bills have been referred to the House Local Government Committee.

The primary concern in assessing the value of a property is determining how much the owner should pay in property taxes – meaning the assessment of tax-exempt property is largely inconsequential. The bill frees up county assessors’ resources to focus on the

Go Red for Women February 1, 2013, marked the 10th anniversary of National Wear Red Day®, an event that was inspired to help raise awareness of the shocking frequency of heart disease in women. That first National Wear Red Day® in 2003 subsequently motivated the American Heart Association to create Go Red for Women, a social initiative intended to increase awareness, educate and inspire women to take action in the fight against heart disease. Funds raised for this initiative are also used to support scientific research and develop new tools and treatments in the fight against heart disease. Go Red for Women is QFC’s Charity of the Month for February. Here are some sobering facts provided by the American Heart Association. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the U.S. It accounts for 1 of every 3 women’s deaths. 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors that can lead to heart disease. Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease. Heart disease can affect women of all ages, even women who lead healthy lifestyles, if they have other risk factors. 64 percent of women who die suddenly from coronary

heart disease had no previous symptoms. Despite those statistics, only about 20% of women believe that heart disease is the greatest health threat they face. Go Red for Women and the American Heart Association are combatting heart disease through awareness and education and by motivating women to take action. Awareness includes understanding the symptoms of a heart attack, which can be different in women than in men. Women’s symptoms can include shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain. Other symptoms women should look out for are dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting, pain in the lower chest or upper abdomen and extreme fatigue. Knowing those symptoms is important, but wouldn’t it be even better to avoid those symptoms? And that means taking actions to reduce the risk of ever having a heart attack. Some of the actions the American Heart Association recommends are: not smoking, managing your blood sugar, get-

ting your blood pressure under control, lowering your cholesterol, knowing your family history of heart disease, staying active, losing weight and eating healthfully. Eating healthfully will have multiple benefits. A diet rich in a variety of vegetables and fruits, lean proteins, healthy fats and whole grains can be a great defense against the onset of high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. The AHA recommends that an adult consuming 2,000 calories daily should aim for: •

Fruits and vegetables: At least 4.5 cups a day.

Fish (preferably oily fish, like salmon): At least two 3.5-ounce servings a week.

Fiber-rich whole grains: At least three 1-ounce servings a day.

Nuts, legumes and seeds: At least 4 servings a week, opting for unsalted varieties whenever possible

no damage deposit. What about homeowners associations that require damage deposits or move in fees when units are leased? Does a landlord now have to pay the association a damage deposit, fee (etc.) out of their own pocket in order to fulfill their obligation to accept Section 8 tenants? What about the cost of homeowners association rules infractions? Generally those are billed back to the tenant. There does not appear to be a provision for covering these costs with the Section 8 program. So again, a small scale landlord will be paying these fines for their tenant. This will cause homeowners associations chaos since the whole reason for rules and fines is to make the tenants (owners and renters) incentivized to follow the rules. So would citizens expect that the city council could enact a massive change in city laws without outreach, public input, or a vote, or anything? Would citizens expect their city to dictate who they must accept as tenants? Again, without notifying the public that they were changing the laws? The council asked city staff to conduct outreach on this issue. They made that request in November. It appears a select group of folks were given advance invitation. Those who had spoken against this type of mandate in prior years claim to have heard NOTHING about the meeting. There were only two attendees who are property owners or landlords from Kirkland. What was the city’s outreach? (An email to a small email list just 26 hours before the meeting). So, Kirkland, where is the outreach? Where is the public process? Do we have a government that just enacts laws that impact tens of thousands of citizens and businesses whenever someone “in power” gets the itch to change something? Come on. This type of behavior needs to change.

All landlords, or potential landlords, should be aware that the city has been quietly moving towards mandating that you must accept Section 8 vouchers. And from what I hear, these can be good for helping folks pay for housing and they can be good for some landlords – particularly larger apartment complexes. I have listened to those with experience who state that there is perhaps new difficulty with the Section 8 housing vouchers in that move-out damage by a tenant is no longer part of the program. Often those who qualify for Section 8, by definition, may not be able to pay for any damage. And there may be a host of other problems particularly for those renting a single home or condo, or a small number of units wherein they cannot absorb the cost of their tenant’s “wear and tear” when there is

Gouverneur Morris had about all the fidgeting about he could take from the diminutive James Madison. “What?” Morris commanded. “I’m trying to work here.” “You could have fooled me,” Madison shot back. “You’ve been staring at that blank piece of parchment for over an hour.” “It’s not blank,” Morris corrected. “Here, look for yourself.” Madison regarded it. It was not blank, but almost. ‘We, the People,’ it read. “That’s it? That’s all you’ve done?” Madison asked impatiently. “Why, Dolley could have baked a whole tray of Zingers in the time it’s taken you to write three stupid words.” “They’re not stupid words,” Morris contended. “They might be the most important words in the whole Constitution.

What the hay; it’s in the Constitution apparently, he thought to himself, as he raised the pistol now and aimed the barrel in the general direction of Morris and Jefferson.

Kirkland will step up to this need. You stepped up to meet the challenge last summer, Thanksgiving, and during the long December break. Your efforts have brought great success to closing some untended gaps in our support systems, but we haven’t closed all the gaps. We are working with Hopelink and Pantry Packs to get connections to ongoing support and aid to move to self-sufficiency. That will take a long time, so we are working with existing gaps that have been identified by school counselors and teachers who see the needs of these children every day. This is real need in our community, right now. You can make an immediate difference in the lives of these

As a free way for Kirkland citizens and businesses to prepare for local flooding, two self-service sandbag filling stations are now open at the Public Works Maintenance Center parking lot at 915 8th Street and the city’s future Public Safety Building parking lot at 11831 120th Ave. N.E. People who live and own a business in Kirkland and have experienced flooding, are encouraged to have the necessary supply of sandbags ready for use on their properties as a preparedness measure. The sandbag filling stations are available through April 30 and are accessible daily, 24 hours.

Kirkland police arrested a residential burglar at around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday in the North Finn Hill neighborhood. A neighbor saw a man in his 20s walking around the back of a house. When the resident of the house came home, they saw a broken window and alerted police. Lt. Mike Murray with the Kirkland Police Department said after officers arrived, they set up a perimeter around the 9700 block of N.E. 142nd St. and witnessed the suspect come out from another home’s backyard. Police arrested the man based on the description they were given and the neighbor who initially saw the suspect positively identified him. The suspect had broken the back door of the homes and filled a backpack full of items.

New scholarship named for former LWIT instructor This month the Lake Washington College Foundation established the Ralph L. Jones Memorial Endowment, creating two new annual $3,000 scholarships for students. Made possible by a generous $150,000 donation from Redmond firm ABODA in the name of former Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWIT) instructor Ralph L.

Woodmark Hotel welcomes new director of ‘barketing’ pooch Woody Mae

to the Woodmark family,” said John Murphy, general manager of the Woodmark. “As a rescue dog, Woody Mae understands the importance of a welcome face to make someone feel at home. She is the best dog to greet our guests and their canine companions.” As director of barketing, Woody Mae will take over duties from the recently retired guest experience manager Woody, and host Woodmark’s infamous Yappier Hour, which offers hotel guests and the community the opportunity to socialize with other dogs and their owners, while enjoying happy hour food and drink specials. Yappier Hour takes place every Wednesday from June through September from 5 to 7 p.m. on the Beach Café lawn. Woody Mae was rescued by KnK Rescue Foundation in Puyallup and excels in her ability to greet guests of all ages with a wagging tail and wet kisses. She has extensive experience in winning the adoration of hotel guests, being a loyal companion and making every guest feel right at home. A graduate of Puppy Charm School with a bachelor’s degree in tailwagging and barking makes Woody Mae the right canine for the job. Woody Mae is a one-ofa-kind canine who longs

to serve and please others. Her favorite activities include hunting for the next best treat and taking a dip in Lake Washington in the Woodmark’s backyard. Guests will find Woody Mae curled up in the lobby daydreaming about napping in the hotel’s expertly crafted and lavish guest rooms and suites, dining at Beach Café feasting on the Blackened Salmon Tacos, enjoying bin on the lake’s magnificent water views and pampering herself with a rejuvenating spa treatment at Northwest Face Spa.

much everybody in the GNAC and the California League for Division II.” Though Staudacher is averaging a modest 4.8 points per game, 2.2 rebounds, and 2.3 assists for the Clan – neither he or the coaching staff appear to be phased. As the freshman continues to discover exactly how his game translates into the collegiate ranks, Blake sees both the reality and potential for his multi-skilled point guard. “He can score it a little bit, and I say a little bit because he really hasn’t been able to do it at the college level yet. Part of that is because he’s trying to get everybody involved and part of it’s because he’s still a freshman trying to figure out how to score at this level. I like where he’s at. He’s a guy that’s going to be a solid point guard in this league for a lot of years.” While consistently improving his individual

Kirkland native Matt Staudacher (right) is a point guard during his first year at Simon Fraser University. COURTESY OF SFU statistics will be a goal over the next few seasons, Staudacher seems to understand that maintaining a positive attitude is just as important. When asked about his playing time, and whether coming on and off the floor disrupts his rhythm, Staudacher says, “You just have to be ready to go whenever. It’s not in my control, but it’s nice, just (give) all your energy, and then you’ve got a sub

or Simon Fraser University’s Matt Staudacher, an evolution is now underway. And midway through his first season of college basketball, the first stage has been a rather quiet one. Take a moment to watch Simon Fraser University’s 6’1 freshman point guard during pre-game warmups as he knocks down jumper after jumper. There is no swag-talk, no woorah, no waste of energy. Staudacher’s release is smooth, accurate and efficient. With each motion as precise as the next, all in a journey toward perfection, he repeatedly rises up and launches away. The results are soundless. All net, all day. Clearly, Staudacher operates in silence. But this quiet behavior – one of unwavering focus and intensity — does not end there. Watch

coming in right away.” Blake and his staff are not oblivious to what Staudacher can bring to the table in terms of his character. “Matt works very hard in practice, as well as on his own. He’s only going to continue getting bigger and stronger and that’s going to help him in the GNAC,” says assistant coach Eric Burrell. “He has tremendous upside.” When asked about Staudacher’s personality, Blake adds, “He’s very coachable, very disciplined. You ask him to do something and he does it.” But there is, however, an area in which the coaching staff will continue to push Staudacher to improve. “My expectations for him are really high. I’d like to see him become more of a vocal leader for us,” says Blake. “He’s in a really tough predicament because if he was a two-guard or a forward, he wouldn’t have that leadership responsibility. But as a point guard, he is the quarterback of the team.” As Staudacher becomes more of a focal point in SFU’s offensive and defensive schemes over the next few years, a true leader of the Clan, his own desire to improve must meet the expectations set before him. Only then can a true evolution occur. When asked about what skills he wishes to develop the most during his tenure at SFU, it was as if he had quietly overheard his coach. “I definitely want to become more of a leader,” Staudacher declares. “I’m definitely looking to step up as a leader and just refine all parts of my game.” And there it is. Even with his soundless jumper, subtle hesitation move, and sneaky stealing ability, we can hear Matt Staudacher coming. His desire is loud and clear. The evolution has begun.
