When light rail goes through your kitchen, you’re going to speak up Residents concerned Sound Transit will steamroll city, property owners BY CELINA KAREIVA BELLEVUE REPORTER

Blue arrows show detour routes for West Lake Sammamish Parkway SE. CITY OF BELLEVUE

Motorists warned of significant impacts to West Lake Sammamish Parkway Work on enhancements to West Lake Sammamish Parkway will cause significant impacts to motorists beginning March 19, according to a City of Bellevue announcement. On that date, the parkway will be closed to southbound traffic starting at Southeast 34th Street. A northbound lane will remain open, but significant delays are still likely. All businesses will remain open during construction. The roadway typically carries 11,000 drivers on an average weekday and the city is strongly advising motorists to find alternate routes to traveling on West Lake Sammamish Parkway between Interstate 90 and

Southeast 34th Street. Delays of 15 minutes or more are possible through the construction zone. The parkway project will include safety enhancements for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers by providing a multi-use trail along the west side of the arterial. The work also will restore the existing pavement while maintaining the distinct character of the area. The proposed construction plan breaks the roadway into five approximately mile-long segments. The first phase will take at least 10 months to complete. The city began construction of Phase 1 in early 2013. The scope of work includes the construction of a

10-foot wide multi-use path on the west side of the street, a four-foot shoulder on the east side, and two general-purpose travel lanes (one northbound and one southbound). Along with roadway improvements, the city will install new storm drains and replace existing water mains. The first type of work installs erosion control, builds retaining walls, and improves storm drains, water lines, and water service. Construction takes place between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. To expedite the work, two or three crews will be working at a time at different locations. Besides the contrac-

Susan Huenefeld wasn’t going to speak last Monday at a public hearing for land use code amendments concerning East Link’s future alignment in Bellevue. But when she saw a green line drawn through hers and her neighbor’s property in a slideshow visualization of screening on 112th, Huenefeld changed her mind. “That green line on the earlier slides, goes straight through my kitchen, living room and dining room,” said Huenefeld as the hearing drew to a close. “I didn’t buy my house over 18 years ago, to have the enormous douglas-fir torn down so that I could have a beautiful view of light rail, 10 feet from my house.” Last October, the council began a series of meetings to amend land use codes that didn’t anticipate East Link’s extension into Bellevue. The land use code “overlay” will inform future permit processes, development and design standards as the project moves forward. And for many residents of the Enatai and Surrey Downs neighborhoods, whose homes will be the most affected by the alignment, it’s a critical moment for property owners. “There’s no recourse for property owners in this LUC,” said Arjun Sirohi, Huenefeld’s neighbor along 112th Avenue Southeast. Both have long voiced their concern to Sound Transit and the city, most notably about the possibility of partial acquisition, which would allow ST to purchase all but a sliver of grass and the back deck in either yard. But now they’re worried the overlay will set an unfair precedent for Sound Transit, allowing them to steamroll the city and property owners on future occasions. “The debate is already done,” said Sirohi, who clarifies that he’s not trying to banish East Link from Bellevue. “They’ve decided on the alignment. Now it’s about the LUC, and what are the rights of the property owners.” Over the weekend, Huenefeld paused to lead a brief tour of the properties lining 112th, where East Link would construct a portion of its alignment. The exact details of construction won’t be determined until later this spring SEE LIGHT RAIL, 6

The city has extended the deadline for residents who want to have a say on the 2013 annual community survey. This survey supplements the city’s statistically valid annual survey that closed on Feb 10. The annual community survey gives residents a chance to have a say on the city’s municipal services in 2012. It’s the first time Bellevue has offered all residents an opportunity to participate. The new deadline for the survey is Thursday, Feb. 28. To complete the survey, residents may go to BellevueWebSurvey2013. Responses from volunteer survey participants will supplement the results of

households previously selected at random to take the survey by telephone and online. That phase of the survey ended on Feb. 10. As in past years, a group of residents were randomly selected and a postcard mailed inviting them to take the survey by telephone or online. The group reflects a statistically reliable sample and the findings represent all Bellevue residents. The city has partnered with an independent research firm, ORC International, to conduct the survey. More information is available by contacting Rich Siegel, Performance Coordinator for the City of Bellevue, at 425-452-7114 or

Time to talk about transportation taxes


he $10 billion transportation tax package rolled out Wednesday by House Democrats in Olympia certainly is an eye-opener. But it might just what the public needs to focus on how we move people and products in our state. The plan would boost taxes on gasoline by 10 cents a gallon and add a car-tab tax of 0.7 percent on the value of a vehicle. The plan also would put a $25 sales tax fee on bicycle worth $500 or more. All of this – plus how the money would be spent – will be one of the most debated issues of the legislative session. And, we suspect, around dinner tables and water coolers by everyone else. Credit 41st Legislative District Rep. Judy Clibborn, D-Mercer Island, with taking on this tough task. Her district includes half of Bellevue and we suspect she – like the rest of us – sees transportation woes on a daily basis. We won’t try to give a blessing or a curse to the proposal yet. Like you, we want to poke into the bill’s details first. But as more people move here and use our roads, and as those continue to deteriorate, it should be obvious that doing nothing isn’t an option. If you drive on I-405, you see that problem every day. The same is true if you’ve ever gotten bogged down in traffic trying to travel from our state to Oregon. Even Snoqualmie Pass is often overloaded. The bill doesn’t include money to complete the new Evergreen Point bridge. Maybe it should, but tolls – if expanded to I-90 – could take care of that funding issue. Any while no one likes tolls, you can make a good argument that in this instance they are a targeted user tax. Some already had cried that a 10-cent gasoline tax increase (2 cents a year for each of five years), would give our state the highest gas tax in the nation. That shouldn’t be the issue. Instead, we should concentrate on what we need to keep people moving on our roads and how do we pay for the needed costs. Let’s start talking. – Craig Groshart, Bellevue Reporter

What to do on my summer vacation


t’s that time of year again. Festival season. In the last month, the lineups for nearly every major summer music festival has been released. And now it’s decision time. Coachella. Sasquatch! Primavera. Governor’s Ball. Bonnaroo. Firefly. Pickathon. What festival am I going to spend my money on? For the past two years, I went with what most music heads would call the “obvious choice”: Coachella. It’s the biggest, most varied lineup of the bunch (historically), and it helped that I had an Keegan Prosser aunt and uncle that lived right outside of the polo grounds (NOTE: showers and beds instead of camping? Yes please). Also, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be hot. But this year I am looking for something new. For the most part, the bulk of the lineups are comparable. Insert hot pop act, insert weird indie thing, insert hip hop game changer. Then there are the headliners. That’s where Coachella is lacking this year; for some reason, it just seems they missed the mark.


I-90 tolls will impact religious life Growing up Jewish on Mercer Island, I knew being part of a Jewish community was very important to me. There are two conservative synagogues in the Puget Sound area – one in Seattle and one on Mercer Island. There are two Jewish Community Centers (JCC) in the Puget Sound

This year, festival headliners include Phoenix (new album dropping soon), Mumford and Sons (Duh. They just won a Grammy) and the Red Hot Chili Peppers (safe, solid option). Totally awesome - but completely predictable. That’s why I’m flying the coop and checking out the Governor’s Ball festival in New York. Why? Because every single headliner for that fest has been pretty much MIA in the last year (Kanye West, Kings of Leon and Guns and Roses) - and that’s bound to provide for some excitement. Being the music brat I am, I understand not everyone can fly across the country to go hear a couple bands. That’s why us Washingtonians are super lucky. We have one of the best musical festivals, with one of the best lineups - in our own backyard. The Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge in George. Sure, it’s a bit of a drive, but with headliners including locals Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and The Postal Service - in addition to a bunch of other awesome acts - it’s one you don’t want to miss. Oh, and Mumford will be there too.

area – one in Seattle and one on Mercer Island. There are two large chain grocery stores with fresh Kosher meat in the Puget Sound area – one in Seattle and one on Mercer. Like so many others, I chose to live on the Eastside (in Bellevue along the I-90 corridor) specifically in order to have easy access to the center of Jewish life that exists on Mercer Island. Over the past 10 years, I have commuted to Mercer Island at least 10 times a week to get my children to and from childcare at the JCC. I have commuted to Mercer Island

at least eight times a week to get my children to and from Hebrew School at Herzl-Ner Tamid Conservative Congregation. I have commuted to Mercer Island at least an additional six times a week to attend services at Herzl-Ner Tamid, work out at the JCC, and buy Kosher food at the Albertsons on Mercer Island. Tolling I-90 could make being an active member of the Eastside Jewish Community cost prohibitive. It is incumbent upon the WSDOT to not restrict access to religious life.

Consolidate all of your (library) loans


am a librarian whose children lose books. It happens. When a notice came home that Hairball From Outer Space was overdue from my son’s school library we looked everywhere. We never found it. I was embarrassed that other librarian friends or parents would hear about it. “Psst,” they would whisper. “There’s the librarian’s kid. Did you hear he lost a book?” I’m sure there’s a saying about it somewhere: The carpenter’s house is never finished, the cobbler’s kids have no shoes and the librarian’s

kid loses books. It’s not easy keeping track of multiple accounts, especially when family members inadvertently check things out on each other’s cards. King County Library System offers a convenient solution for busy families. Library Elf is a proDarcy Brixey gram that allows users to consolidate multiple card accounts.

Conversation helps brew a long tradition BY KEEGAN PROSSER BELLEVUE REPORTER

“This group is special.” That seems to be the general consensus about the “Hyak Coffee Club” – a group of women hailing from the Kelsey Creek neighborhood, who meet for coffee and good conversation on the third Wednesday of every month. Started by Jo Bourgoin, nearly 45 years ago, the original intent of the gathering was to connect with neighbors and talk gardening. Each month, Bourgoin would run through a list of approximately 30 women, call them and set up a meeting. When word of her hospitality and kind nature spread, the group began to grow. “I hosted 14 or 15 people in my living room – until I ran out of cups,” Bourgoin said. When the group outgrew Bourgoin’s living room, others within the neighborhood began to host. And throughout the years, the numbers have stayed about the same. “There are usually a dozen women.” said Jeri Albertini, who’s been attending the gathering for five years. Two years ago, the group decided to start meeting at Let’s Do Lunch, off 130th in Bellevue. “Now none of us has to play hostess,” says Pearl Nardella, whose been attending the gathering since 1986. The rules for the gatherings are simple: no politics, no religion, no gossip. And despite the limitations, conversations abound: family updates, real estate, the safety of the neighborhood and the status of Kelsey Creek Park are just the tip of the iceberg

when it comes to these ladies. The longevity of the group is another impressive feat, something Albertini attributes to the fact that they genuinely all want to be there. “We all get along,” she said. So well, in fact, that a number of women who have since moved away from the neighborhood continue to return. That’s the case for Joyce Vodal, who now lives in Jo Bourgoin (left) and Jeri Albertini catch up during this month’s Edmonds, but continues gathering at Let’s Do Lunch in Bellevue.

when savings estimates come in. But Huenefeld is also wary of the environmental complications of building the alignment along a wetland sensitive area, just north of Mercer Slough Nature Park, itself briefly considered for light rail. She points to a puddle at the back of her property, standing water she says is there almost year-round after the sidewalk was built. When 112th was constructed, some neighbors remember one of the construction vehicles disappearing in the middle of the night as it sunk into the marshy terrain. In fact, says Huenefeld, when repaired, the road had to eventually be constructed on Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) panels, to counteract poor soil conditions. Don Billen, East Link deputy project director says he hears resident concerns, but that Sound Transit meets federal standards for noise mitigation and environmental protection. The question now, is whether Bellevue councilmembers think they need to go above and beyond federal and state requirements. At the end of March, Sound Transit will publish an addendum to the environmental review that addresses alignment changes considered during the cost savings process, such as those along 112th. Places along 112th could need ground improvements, says Billen. In locations where the soil isn’t firm enough to support the weight of the light rail system, columns may be inserted into the ground, stretching down to harder soil. The City Council met again Tuesday, Feb. 19 to discuss topics that came up during the public hearing. Discussions of setback and buffering were revisited. The council plans to vote on the overlay next Monday.


Stan Parente Salons doing well since coming to Bellevue


t’s been two years since Stan Parente of Stan Parente Salons decided to expand into the Bellevue City Center. As he assesses the progress over the past two years, Stan is happy but wants more. Before opening in Bellevue, he had considered many other locations the first being Seattle. Stan started his career in Seattle and has always had a desire to go back. But, with the state of the economy hitting the city fairly hard, Bellevue became a better option. Stan’s only hesitation was whether Bellevue would embrace his salon’s style. He says, “Typically, high-end salons tend to have a snobby setting and are trying too hard to be cool!” He adds, “At Stan Parente Salons, the environment is exactly the opposite.” He likes a fun, comfortable, and easy-going atmosphere. Stan’s flagship location, Salon Parente in Federal Way, and his second adventure, Stan Parente Salon - Maple Valley, prove his methods are successful. For many years, clients of both locations have loved to be part of the fun. Most of the salon’s clients build life-long relationships with their stylist. Stan has come to the conclusion that Bellevue and the city’s wonderful people are no different. After finding a salon to makeover, he made some slight changes in staffing and added some new faces to the mix.

Stan then implemented a very structured training program, which he feels is the most important element of success. He has also cultivated a strong relationship with Oribe, Bumble and Bumble, and Wella. With Stan’s own education program, combined with both the national and international training that all three companies provide, the stylists at Stan Parente Salons have access to a complete and thorough training experience. Oribe, Bumble and Bumble, and Wella also provide events that inspire the stylist. For instance, Sephora and Bumble and Bumble are putting on an event on March 10th for Sephora’s Gold members. The Bellevue salon will host this event, with stylists from all three locations. The stylists will give these clients lessons on all of Bumble and Bumble’s products, teaching them how to use them to the best of their potential. Stan is also very excited about the launch of the Man Cave at the Bellevue location. The Man Cave is a just-for-men space, equipped with two talented stylists, Quinn and Parker, who have devoted their careers to men’s styling. Stan has also added a new skin care room, staffed by one of the best estheticians from the Maple Valley location. Stan says, “Marcie is amazing. With her already long list

of clients, you better get an appointment with her now because it won’t be long before it will be pretty difficult to get in with her.” With all of the amazing changes that have occurred within Stan Parente Salon - Bellevue and the amazing growth of the brand, Stan wants to make it very clear that the best is yet to come. Stay tuned for the latest and greatest to come out of Stan Parente Salons!

Rob McKenna joins technology focused law firm Zuklie, chair-elect of Orrick. “This is an area of significant focus for Orrick’s technology and other clients.” McKenna’s legislative agenda included a number of initiatives focused on privacy and data security, including passage of one of the nation’s first anti-spyware laws, as well as measures to prevent identity theft. “Upon deciding to return to private practice, I looked for a firm grounded in Washington state that offered a top-tier national and international platform and a client roster of leading technology and consumer product companies,” McKenna said. “I look forward to collaborating with Orrick’s accomplished litigation, corporate and public policy lawyers in Seattle and worldwide on cutting-edge legal issues for our clients.” Prior to serving as Washington Attorney General, McKenna served on the King County Council and was an attorney at Perkins Coie.

Why West is best for business A

s a small business operator in the tech industry, I know great employees are the building blocks of any company’s success. To stay competitive and have a thriving business, our company needs to recruit and retain top talent. One of the most important aspects of recruiting and retaining our employees is our state’s quality of life. When Tecplot started back in the ’80s, the company was in a position to choose where to set up business, and one of the big reasons

BUSINESS VIEWPOINT for locating in the Seattle area was the spectacular outdoor quality of life. And companies like ours continue to move here – growth in healthcare, high-tech, finance industries is outpacing other parts of the country. Our team can tackle Mount Si or ride the

This 33-lap swim started at a Swedish shoulder pain seminar. Shoulders are rather indispensable. And it’s amazing the things you can do with them when they don’t hurt all the time. If you’ve put part of your life on hold because of shoulder pain, then come to a free seminar at Swedish — the place that does hundreds of shoulder surgeries every year. An expert surgeon will answer all your questions about shoulder replacement, non-surgical options, and other sport-related injuries. So take the plunge. Our seminars take just two hours, and the rest of your active life is waiting.

trails at Tiger Mountain after work and backpack in the Cascades on the weekends. We can recruit and retain talented employees by highlighting these incredible recreational opportunities, which offer an outlet for relaxation and inspiration. We want our employees to be happy at work, but also happy in the place where they live, a place where they enjoy their lifestyles. Close-to-home access to the outdoors doesn’t only help us attract and retain the most talented employees. I believe it helps our team stay passionate, committed and creative. A Rich Stillman recent cover story in Outside Magazine points to increasing scientific data about the benefits of the outdoors to reducing stress and boosting creativity. It can give a company like ours a competitive advantage. Economists say that competitive advantage is real – and they see it in communities across the West. A new report, West is Best by the nonprofit economic research group Headwaters Economics, says that the western United States is outperforming the rest of the country in job creation, personal income, and population growth, and that protected lands – like national parks, monuments, and wilderness – are providing western states with a competitive economic advantage that helps create more jobs. Specifically:

From 1970 to 2010, the West’s employment grew by 152 percent compared to 78 percent for the rest of the country. This job growth was almost entirely in services industries such as healthcare, real estate, high-tech, and finance and insurance, which created 19.3 million net new jobs, . Rural western counties with more than 30 percent of their land base in federal protected status (such as national parks, monuments or wilderness) increased jobs by 345 percent over the last 40 years. Similar counties with no protected federal public lands increased employment by only 83 percent. Maintaining this competitive advantage requires balancing development of our public lands with protections for the places our communities care about — those irreplaceable landscapes that local sportsmen, skiers, climbers, hikers, and even us techies count on for our way of life. The logical conclusion is continued support of programs like the Land and Water Conservation Fund, the nation’s premier funding source to protect our outdoors and provide public access to the outdoors. Dealing responsibly with the federal government’s deficit problems requires identifying and prioritizing what our nation needs most to compete in the world today and continue to support companies like mine that rely on a skilled and balanced workforce. Congress and the White House should keep America’s parks and public lands on the priority list. Rich Stillman is CEO of Tecplot, Inc. in Bellevue, a company that produces visualization software for engineers and scientists.

A thought for the penny

still remember it. It was a time when – at least to people like my great-uncle – a penny meant something. In 1913, according to Time magazine, a penny had nearly 25 times the purchasing power it has today. But now it costs more than two cents to produce a penny. I was never much good at math, but that sounds like a bad deal – as if a penny saved is a deficit earned. Earlier this month, Canada stopped circulating pennies – and there are some who think the U.S. should too. My grandma would have said, “If Canada jumps off a cliff, should the U.S.?” tanding at the supermarket checkout stand, my When I was a kid, there were actually things you great-uncle noticed that his tab had come to could buy for a penny – specifically bubble gum.

February 22, 2013 [9] The US used to have a $100,000 bill, but stopped printing it since it was so hard to break one at Quizno’s. If the US eventually eliminates the penny, what are we going to insert into penny loafers? What’s to become of all those penny slot machines at the Tulalip? What are we going to use as makeshift screwdrivers? What will we use in the garden as cheap slug repellants? (Pennies supposedly give slugs a tiny electric shock.) How much will we have to pay for someone’s thoughts? Seems like a nickel ought to get you five of them – but I know people with only four thoughts, max. Every time it rains, what will it rain from Heaven? And what will kids have to place onto railroad tracks for the purposes of flattening? I don’t have the answers to any of those questions. And even if I did, my opinion wouldn’t be worth a red quarter. Pat Cashman can be reached at He also can be found at his podcast at peculiarpodcast. com.

According to Doneskey, patients also express lifestyle concerns such as the inconvenience of taking CPAP along when they travel or go on vacation. At The Sleep Apnea & Facial Pain Center, Doneskey reports high levels of patient satisfaction, compliance and success with a new oral appliance called “The SilentPartner™, a jawfriendly FDA approved oral airway dilator that Doneskey himself helped develop.

Today approximately 18 million, or 1 in 15 Americans experience Sleep Apnea, a sleep disorder involving the airway that disrupts a person’s sleep often leading to excessive daytime sleepiness, irritability, overall poor health, and in some cases, even death. According to Dr. Jeffery Doneskey, Oral Medicine Specialist and founder of The Sleep Apnea & Facial Pain Center in Bellevue, therapy for the disorder can be difficult. “The most common treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) involves the use of a medical breathing device called a CPAP, “ said Doneskey. CPAP, which stands for continuous positive airway pressure, delivers air through a mask worn over the nose during sleep in order to help maintain an open airway. While CPAP can provide an effective solution, Doneskey reports that there are significant reasons why some people are unwilling or unable to use CPAP. “For example, restless sleepers often

Bellevue’s Villani takes title at Mat Classic BY JOSH SUMAN BELLEVUE REPORTER

Another state title trophy is back on Wolverine Way, this one for the first time in 36 years. Bellevue’s Christian Villani stormed through the 132 pound bracket at Mat Classic XXV in the Tacoma Dome, capping the performance with a dominating 14-0 technical fall victory over Tyler Wicken of Kelso in the finals. Villani, only a sophomore, pinned Mount Spokane’s Richie Bondurant in the first round before taking out Decatur’s Isiah Diggs 6-1 in what would be his closest match of the tournament. He opened Saturday with a 15-0 technical fall win over Kamiakin’s Harley Kolp before dispatching Wicken in the finals to bring home Bellevue’s first wrestling state championship since Ted Cheng in the 1977-78 season. Villani took an injury defeat in the final match at the Regional meet after winning his first two matches by pin and was also the KingCo champion in his weight class. Cutter Podoll dropped both of his matches at 152 pounds for Bellevue, as did Jamey Mange at 170 and Dean Jones at 285. Behind Villani’s title, Bellevue finished 25th in the team scoring with 26.5 points,

Newport boys play on, girls bounced in hoops “They are a very good team and have proven they can win,” Haizlip said. “From here on out, every team is good and you’re going to get the best.” Also conference champs, the Wildcats are paced by senior guard J.J. Jahr, who scored 18 points in the district title game win. For Newport’s seniors, the home court win not only offered an encore of Senior Night, but an opportunity to finally bury the memories of the 2010-11 season, when that group was sophomores and exited the postseason in the same pigtail game they won on Tuesday. “I’m so happy for this group,” Haizlip said. “It’s a very special group and I love these guys to death. But they are not satisfied.” Lake Stevens spoiled the party for the Newport girls, leaving with a 48-43 win behind a game-high 22 points from Brooke Pahukoa. The loss ends the season for the Knights.

Teammate Daniel Prang was second in the B final in 1:48.49. McCarthy also earned an All-American time in the 100 back, finishing in second place in that event as well. Bellevue’s team of Michael Stanchi, Morgan Ciliv, James Doucette and Matt Williams finished just hundredths of a second off the pace in the 200 medley relay in one minute, 36.62 seconds.

For the first time since 2002, the Newport boys basketball team is among the state’s final 16 teams. The Knights beat Mount Vernon 66-55 on Tuesday in a pigtail game to earn the final regional round spot and set a Saturday date with Eastmont at Wenatchee High School. Will Ferris paced coach Steve Haizlip’s squad with 19 points and the Knights also got 17 from Isaac Dotson, 15 from Miles Fowler and 11 more from Jason Lock. Haizlip said his team’s ability to persevere through a rash of injuries has been indicative of the group’s desire. “A lot of teams might start pointing fingers or blaming the fact we haven’t been healthy,” he said. “They just stuck together.” The win for the boys team sends Newport to the regional round of the state tournament, where they will face an Eastmont squad that defeated rival Wenatchee in its district title game.

Doucette finished in eighth in the 100 fly and Stanchi was second in the 500 free in an All-American Consideration time of 4:43.96. French, Prang, Doucette and McCarthy finished sixth in the 200 free relay. The Wolverines ended the meet with another second place relay finish, earning an All-American time of 3:09.64 in the 400 free relay, just behind Mercer Island. Bellevue finished third in the team scoring, behind the Islanders and defending 3A champion Lakeside. Newport’s Dave Makhervaks, George Done, Ian Weiss and Matthew Patterson were second in the B final. Benton Allen finished fourth in the 200 free in 1:45.11, more than a second faster than his preliminary time. Makhervaks earned his best finish of the day in the 100 back, where he was fourth in a time of 53.25. He and Andrew Pana both swam the B final of the 200 IM for the Knights. Newport had three make the A final in the 500 free, with Benton Allen finishing fifth, just in front of Aaron Elhajj. Pana was eighth in the event.

Interlake was back at the 3A state meet for the first time since 2007-08 after spending the past four years in Class 2A. Michael Lorr was fourth in the B final of the 50 free and teamed with Albert Furlong, Alex Lorenz and Jeffrey Li in the 200 medley relay, where the Saints finished fourth. Furlong made the B final in the 100 back and Li did the same in the 100 breast. Austin Rockwell, Noah Davis, Michael Lorr and his brother Joe won the B final of the 400 free relay to help Interlake to a 19th place team finish. Jacob Tower was fifth in the 50 free for Sammamish at the 2A meet and Conrad Karwal earned a fourth place finish in the 100 fly and was sixth in the 100 back. Tyler Spencer was second in the B final of the 100 free and also swam in the 500 free.

The perfect gift: It’s your choice


hat do you buy for the birthday honoree who asks for gifts that cost less than $5? When this request arrived via email I ignored it. It sounded too much like the rule of the annual Christmas gag gift party my husband and I go to, except that gift, as well as being cheap, must also be horrid. Most of us would find the under-$5 request challenging to fulfill. Perhaps a loaf of bread, or this month, a gallon of gas. However, our creative host for this particular birthday party scrounged around in her basement and found not one, but three gifts. Later, she took us Ann Oxrieder on a tour of said basement, so we could put in our requests for our own future, previously-owned birthday presents. Choosing one’s own gifts — whether in a store or someone’s basement — has always seemed the sensible thing to do for the obvious reason that you get what you want. Even

Bellevue College to host regional science fair March 9

more important, it spares you that uncomfortable moment when you are looking at something you would never choose for yourself and the gift-giver is searching your face for the joyful expression that is not appearing nearly fast enough. In her hilarious poem, “Gifts that keep on giving,” Marge Piercy catalogs undesirable gifts (and given the size of the list she must have had many bad experiences in gift receiving), starting with the most common unwelcome Christmas offering – fruitcake. She goes on to describe majolica vases “in the shape of wheezing frogs,” “gloves to fit three-toed sloths,” “mufflers of screaming plaid acrylic,” and many more. These days most of us have too much stuff, so buying adults gifts other than the disposable kind (as in, those disposed of by eating) just seems wrong. But opening our closets, drawers and bookshelves to friends and sharing something of ours with them, might be a satisfying way to create enough space in the basement or garage. This allows us to reposition something from the house to one of those sites. Of course we all have treasures that we aren’t ready to part with. In my case, the shelf of gag gifts we’re saving until December is definitely off-limits.

More than 150 of King and Snohomish counties’ brightest and most inventive high school students will compete March 9 in Bellevue College’s 4th annual Central Sound Regional Science and Engineering Fair (CSRSEF). The participants have spent months conducting independent research, either individually or in teams, in one of 17 science, math and engineering categories. Projects will be evaluated for creativity, depth of content, thoroughness, clarity and other criteria by local science and engineering professionals. The registration deadline for participants is Feb. 27. The public is invited to view the projects and submit their votes for the “People’s Choice Award” from 1 to 3 p.m. on March 9 in Bellevue College’s gymnasium. Additionally, those who attend can see several science and engineering demonstrations on topics such as computer science, chemistry, physics, entomology, and more. The grand prize winners, as well as winners in additional categories, will be announced at the awards ceremony at 3 p.m. Students involved in the top two projects will win all-expense-paid trips to represent the central Puget Sound region at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, Ariz., May 13-17, which draws over 1,500 high school students from 40 countries. Last year’s first runners-up, Caroline Shouraboura and Shanthi Shanmugam from Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bellevue, went on to win a fourth place Grand Award in the Mathematics category and several special awards at the 2012 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for their project, “Optimal Allocation of Global Constrained Resources Using the Hyperbolic Voronoi Diagram.” Bellevue College’s main campus is located at 3000 Landerholm Circle SE.

Meydenbauer Bay pipeline project to begin this summer BY CELINA KAREIVA BELLEVUE REPORTER

As part of an ongoing pipeline replacement by Bellevue Utilities, the city has issued permits for 1,250 lineal feet in Meydenbauer Bay. The project is expected to begin this summer, but has received extra attention because the line is partially located underwa-

ter, in a corner of Lake Washington that has a fragile ecosystem. Built nearly 60 years ago, the pipeline has since deteriorated. Because of the location of the pipeline, environmental concerns will be taken into consideration. Construction will take place during the “fish window,” said Jay Hummel of the City of Bellevue,

from mid-July through the end of December, to minimize its impacts on species, including Puget Sound Chinook Salmon, Puget Sound steelhead and bull trout. Once complete, the replacement line in Lake Washington will be covered with gravel appropriate for salmon spawning.

What’s happening in the world of art

Students to present ‘FAME Jr.’


There’s a lot to be said about learning by example. At least that’s what the parents and educators at Puesta del Sol believe. That’s why, during the first three weeks of March, the Bellevue-based Spanish immersion school will welcome well-known Puerto Rican musician and educator Angel “Balancé” Reyes and his son, Otoquí Reyes, as part of their new Artist in Residence program. The idea of bringing professionals into the school is not a new one, said María Feliciano, who is a parent coordinator on the Spanish Immersion through the Arts committee. In fact, the school has been bringing artists - of all mediums - in to the classroom, for the past three years. “Every year, we [bring in] between two and three artists,” said Feliciano about the PTA-sponsored committee. However, the Artists in Residence program will allow the artists to spend an extended amount of time with the students. The idea to bring Angel and Otoquí Reyes to the school came about after a number of teachers and parents on the committee were introduced to Angel during a short educational trip last year. “Some of the teachers went to his classes and thought he would be perfect,” Feliciano said. Angel is a multifaceted artist, drawing connections between traditional Bomba drumming and his early training in other percussion instruments. In addition to traveling the world with his en-

Movie-goers could order a tub of popcorn, a giant pretzel and a cold beer if legislation under consideration is approved by the Legislature. House Bill 1001 may help independent, locally owned theaters compete with large chain multiplexes, supporters say. Rep. Jim Moeller (D-49th District, Vancouver), who introduced the bill, stated this intent at a public hearing before the House Government Accountability and Oversight Committee on Jan. 17 “This bill is about small theaters,” he said. “It’s about historic theaters like the Kiggins in my hometown.” Dan Wyatt Jr., who, along with his father, owns the Kiggins Theatre, said during the hearing that small theaters lack the space and corporate buying power of large, multiple-screen theaters. High-quality digital projection is

curriculum is most heavily aimed toward the fourth and fifth grade classes, who will be working with the artists twice a week, grades K-3 will work with the artists as well. “The main goal is to enhance the immersion setting for kids who live in [the Seattle area],” Feliciano said. “The other one is to reinforce critical thinking skills through art.” In this tradition, Feliciano said the committee is already brainstorming ideas for which artists to invite next. “We found a group in Mexico - a husband and wife team, who do music and art together,” she said. The Reyes will be introduced to the community during Puesta del Sol’s International Festival, taking place at Newport High School on March 2.

very costly, he said, as is getting the latest blockbuster titles to show in the single-screen venue. Being able to serve beer and wine to adult patrons would give small theaters another source of revenue to compete with suburban multiplexes, Wyatt said. Some multiplexes, such as the Cinebarre in Mountlake Terrace north of Seattle, are able to serve alcohol because they also serve meals; under liquor laws, they qualify as restaurants. Small theaters, such as the one owned by Kiggins, don’t have room for a full kitchen and dining area. The license provided under the new legislation would cost $400 per year to serve beer, wine or both with no requirements for serving food. Representatives from the Washington State Liquor Control Board said controlling alcohol that is being consumed in a dark theater with minors present, as well as the different needs of large multiplexes and smaller theaters, need to be addressed. Some opponents of the bill say that allowing alcohol in more places encourages and normalizes alcohol abuse and sends a harmful message to kids. On Jan. 29, the bill was passed unanimously with minor amendments by the House Government Accountability and Oversight Committee. The bill now goes to the House Rules Committee, which could set it for a floor vote, or direct it to another committee for additional consideration. Its Senate companion bill is SB 5111.

Author and artist Marsha Glaziere will stop by the Bellevue Barnes and Noble for a brief presentation and book signing on Saturday, March 9. Her beautiful new coffee book, Eclectic Coffee Spots in Puget Sound, talks about the wonderful coffee spots in our region - and features paintings, photos and muses about each place. Divided into regions it can act as a guide to great neighborhoods and coffee shops. The event is free and open to the public and will kick off at 2 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble in Bellevue; 626 106th Ave NE, Bellevue.

Love’s Labour’s Lost coming Drawing upon the music and style of pre-World War II Great Britain for “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” director Jon Kretzu stages his first production in Seattle since leaving Actor’s Repertory Theatre in Portland. In this Shakespeare-penned rom-com, the King of Navarre and his buddies have plans to immerse themselves in their studies by swearing off girls, but when the Princess of France arrives with her ladies, their plans are derailed. Tickets are available now through the Seattle Shakespeare Company Box Office at 206-733-8222 as well as online at The production is being staged March 13-April 7, 2013 at the Center Theatre at Seattle Center; 305 Harrison St., Seattle.

Seattle Opera celebrates 50 years The Seattle Opera will begin its 50th anniversary season with performances of Wagner’s “Ring” this summer, followed by a subscription series of four operas featuring a variety of comedy and tragedy, reality and fantasy. The opera’s anniversary celebration climaxes in August 2014 with the International Wagner Competition and a special celebration honoring Speight Jenkins, the company’s general director since 1983. “For my final season at Seattle Opera, I am delighted to present singers who have thrilled our audience time and again in recent years,” Jenkins said. The subscription season opens with Donizetti’s lighthearted romantic comedy La fille du régiment. In January 2014 comes Verdi’s tragic tale of revenge, Rigoletto. A powerful American work, new to the Seattle Opera stage, comes next. Gian Carlo Menotti’s “The Consul” won the Pulitzer Prize following its premiere in 1950. The season concludes with Seattle Opera’s production of Jacques Offenbach’s “Les contes d’Hoffmann.” Tickets to the competition and concert are now available for season subscribers.
