Lame names Sammamish can’t find permanent title for SE 8th Street Park

Principal Mike Williams stands with teacher Pat Barry. Barry teaches family consumer science, what was once known as home economics. The majority of her pupils are boys because two-thirds of Echo Glen’s population is male.

A PLACE OF HOPE

Echo Glen Children’s Center looks to guide troubled youth on a better path LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

ids who are sent to Echo Glen Children’s Center in Snoqualmie arrive broken.

Many arrive with substance abuse issues. Some have been sexually abused and in turn have become abusers themselves. Others have committed very serious crimes. To gain admittance, visitors must be buzzed in and pass through a metal gate. They are advised to leave everything in their car except keys and absolute necessities. “You’d be surprised at what can happen if you put your purse down,” the receptionist says. Once inside, there is a metal detector. But there is also a lot of hope and love for those in this state-run medium/maximum security facility for juvenile offenders. The residents – there are about 150 of them at the center – still must go to school. Since 1967 they’ve been taught staff from the Issaquah School District. Today that includes 15 teachers, six educational assistants and a library tech specialist.

School here is like many others. There’s a fully-stocked library. The facility has a large field for football, soccer and baseball. There’s a gymnasium and even an indoor pool. However, unlike at most schools, each teacher has a panic phone in the classroom. The average reading level when the students arrive is seventh-grade and the average math level is fifth-grade said principal Mike Williams. “They come here a few years behind on their education,” Williams said. Williams said this year’s average student age is 15.2 years of age, with an average reading level of 8.27, about two years behind grade level. The average math level at 6.37, is three and one-half to four years behind grade level. Both scores are an improvement over last year’s scores, he said. It’s important to note these are averages since some students ability is as low as first-grade, and some are as high as post-secondary. “Many classes have ranges that span several grade levels, making it quite challenging for the teachers,” he said. LaShae Lee is in her first year at Echo Glen, teaching math, language arts and Washington State history to the maximum security kids, all boys, ages 13 to 16.

The classroom is within a fenced structure; she has staff in the room with her. “I’ve never been frightened or challenged,” Lee said. Some of her students are at a first-grade math level, while others are at ninth grade. Reading levels range from second grade level to college level. “It’s a big variety of student ability,” Lee said. A mother of teenagers herself, Lee said her students’ humor and attention span is pretty similar to her own teenagers. “Only these boys have gaps of knowledge they didn’t get growing up,” she said. “Bits and pieces are missing.” In the family consumer science classroom, the day before Valentine’s Day, the smell of freshly baked cupcakes wafts through the SEE ECHO GLEN, 11

The Sammamish City Council was prepared to give SE 8th Street Park a new, permanent name during its Feb. 19 meeting, but drew a blank. A committee consisting of land donor Mary Pigott and others from the city staff, council and community whittled choices down to four for the council’s review. The list included Backyard Trails Park, Sammamish Backyard Park, Sammamish Trails Park and Owl Pond Park. “Something like Soaring Eagle Park has an action word in it that really captures the essence of what we’re all about,” councilmember Nancy Whitten said. “I don’t feel any of these names do that, and this is going to be something that’s with us for a long time.” Others on the council agreed the names weren’t ideal. They did, however, come to a consensus on a name from a previous list — Big Rock Park. “It was the favorite of the school children, it was the favorite of everybody,” said Tom Vance, the lone councilmember on the naming committee. The name was scratched from the list because the city of Duvall already has Big Rock Park, which violates parameters set by Piggot. Under her rules, park names cannot conflict with names of places or parks in surrounding communities. SEE PARK, 9 lands

KOMO News reported last week that former Seattle Sonic’s first-round draft pick Robert Swift, who lost his home to foreclosure, refuses to leave his former property. The news organization didn’t reveal where Swift lives, but an internet search showed Swift is the owner of a home in the 21000 block of Southeast 40th Place in Sammamish. A woman, who didn’t want to be identified by the news organization, said she bought the foreclosed home in January and that Swift refuses to leave. Property valuation of the 6,000-squarefoot home and property totaled more than $1.3 million in 2010.

County council member Dunn determined to save Squak Mountain BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

A champion has emerged to save trees on Squak Mountain. Reagan Dunn, a member of the Metropolitan King County Council, told The Reporter that he is confident the county will find the money to buy 216-acres targeted for logging. Kurt ErickReagan Dunn son, owner of Erickson Logging, said he will harvest the timber, but he is giving the county six months to come up with a plan to buy the land

from him. Public outcry pushed the issue to the forefront of local and county officials’ attention. Dunn called the project a high priority and said a proposal is in the works to have the King County Parks Division purchase the land with Conservation Futures funds. A citizens oversight committee would review the application, then make a recommendation to the County Executive and County Council. Dunn said he should be able to get an idea in May from the oversight committee if the project has been selected. The committee’s recommendations are usually followed, according to David Tiemann with the Office of Rural and Resource Programs. A final decision would come in

November. “In the business of government, a November timeline is pretty quick turn-around,” Dunn said. David Kappler, president of Issaquah Alps and Trails Club, said the organization is “pleased” that Dunn has stepped forward, noting that acquiring the property has regional benefits for wild land recreational opportunities close-in to many of the urban Puget Sound cities. Kappler added that acquiring the land could help residents along May Creek deal with increasing months of flooding of their property. The headwaters of May Creek are on Squak Mountain.

LET’S TALK

Transportation – and taxes – need to be on our agenda

READ THE CONSTITUTION

A

$10 billion transportation tax package has been rolled out by House Democrats in Olympia certainly is an eye-opener. But it might just be 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. As she said, “The plan puts $10 billion to work and is investing in the future of the state.” 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, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter ISSAQUAH | SAMMAMISH

Random acts of kindness

I

ssaquah and Sammamish residents, particularly parents, should be proud. Time and time again, I stumble across remarkable feats accomplished in both communities by kids — many of them years away from even considering a drivers license. Look no further than two Sammamish boys, Chirag Vedullapalli, 12, and Amol Garg, 13. The junior philanthropists run a non-profit that turns art work into money for other children in need. Chirag, who started selling art at age 5, said he used to buy himself Kevin Endejan toys with the money he earned, but he that got “boring.” Around age 9, he decided it was time to help those less fortunate and launched Charitable Children for Charity — a website that not only sells Chirag and Amol’s work, but also collects commission fees from other artists. Onehundred percent of the money they earn is donated to charity. Then, there is Geneva Schlepp, a 13-yearold Pine Lake Middle School student, who decided to help fund a new school in Rajasthan, India where 60 percent of girls have dropped out. Inspired by a school presentation that featured members of an African tribe who had to kill a lion in order to gain permission to get an education, Geneva wanted to make her own mark on spreading education around the world. She recruited friends across the Plateau to bake and sell goods in an effort to raise enough money to build a new schoolhouse, buy desks, provide a teacher’s salary and clean water for children in the region.

The kicker — Geneva said she isn’t doing any of it for school credit or other recognition, she simply wants to make an impact. I can’t forget 9-year-old Ajay Gupta, a Sammamish boy who instead of going out and trick-or-treating for his own candy this past Halloween, went house to house collecting coins for the United Nations Children’s Fund. Then, there’s one exceptional act by one nameless youth that didn’t result in a story. While working at Issaquah’s annual Salmon Days Festival this past fall, I went to the back of the booth for a moment. I heard a rustling out in front, followed by a bunch of boys laughing. When I went back, I noticed there was a large portion of candy missing. We were giving it away free, so it wasn’t a big deal. I even laughed a little, thinking “kids will be kids.” But what happened next surprised me. I noticed a young boy, no older than 12, trailing his group of friends. I could see he was conflicted. Moments later, he walked back to me and told me his friends just stole a bunch of candy. He wanted to know how much he owed me. The courage it took for him to come back and potentially take the heat for something his friends did was remarkable. From my experiences living in other parts of the state and country, this isn’t the norm. It says something about the way kids are raised and educated in this region. Sure, the area is affluent, but that doesn’t always transition to kindness. Examples like these keep me hopeful for the future. Parents, keep doing whatever it is you do — it’s certainly working. Assistant editor Kevin Endejan can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. ext. 5054.

I have to laugh at Michael Barr’s Feb. 22 letter in reference to my letter and others because, like Jared Oh, he is also in desperate need of a civics lesson. Where Oh missed the point on the protections afforded by the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, Mr. Barr misses the point on the defining moment in America’s history. He states, “You would have thought Oh called for overturning a tyrannical government through armed insurrection to get this reaction…which is ironically what all these staunch Second Amendment supporters wrongly believe they have a right to do.” I say Mr. Barr needs to take the time to read the Declaration of Independence; that is exactly what our Founding Fathers realized they had the right to do and in the end needed to do through petition then arms. Here’s everyone’s civic lesson for the day: The Constitution is a document directed at the government itself. It is a set of rules the government must follow. If the Constitution doesn’t allow the government to do it, or if the Constitution limits the government in some form or manner, then the government cannot do something. The basic concept behind the Constitution is that any and all rights rest with the people. Everybody should take the time to read it and maybe, just maybe, they’ll begin to understand why some people are so vehemently concerned about the over-burdening reaches of our government into our personal lives.

The Blotter

Police reports from Issaquah and Sammamish BY Kevin endejan kendejan@issaquahreporter.com

The following information was compiled from city of Sammamish and Issaquah police reports::

CAN FIRE Sammamish police responded to a call Feb. 15 of two males attempting to light a tin can on fire. When police arrived in the 1000 block of 218th Avenue Northeast they were unable to locate the suspects. The

can was already extinguished when first responders arrived.

ON BLOCKS Issaquah police responded to two calls of a suspicious vehicle on blocks with no wheels Feb. 7. The registered owner of the car, found in the 100 block of Sky Ridge Road Northwest, told police someone had stolen his wheels and that he had ordered new tires set to arrive within the next couple of days. Police agreed to

not put a 24-hour impound sticker on the vehicle.

VIOLATION A Snoqualmie man was arrested Feb. 21 after police discovered he was driving his vehicle down 228th Avenue in Sammamish without a required Interlock device. The man was initially pulled over for stopping his vehicle in the middle of an intersection at a red left turn arrow.

THREAT A Sammamish man called police Feb. 18 to report a threatening phone call he received from a restricted number. The Sam-

mamish man said the caller, who “sounded African American” asked the man if he would do work on his house in South Seattle. The local man told the caller that was out of his geographical area. The caller then began making acquisitions of racism, dropping the “N” word several times. He asked the man if he only worked for rich white people, then told the man, “I’ve got your card, I know where you live,” followed by a profanity.

DUI ACCIDENT A 22-year-old Redmond man was arrested for suspected DUI Feb. 10 after crashing his truck

into three landscaping strips and through “bicycle only” advisory sign while headed north on East Lake Sammamish Parkway near Inglewood Hill Road. Police didn’t see any skid marks leading up to the accident. The man admitted to drinking two beers at a bar in Issaquah. He blew a .109.

LIQUOR THEFT Employees at the Sammamish QFC called police Feb. 14 after a man and a woman allegedly stole $400 in liquor and drove off in two separate vehicles. Employees said they witnessed the suspects hide the liquor under their clothes and leave the store

without paying.

MAIL STOLEN A Sammamish woman called police Feb. 13 to report someone stole mail from her home, including a pre-paid card to an Issaquah hardware store valued at nearly $2,000.

JACKET THEFT A Sammamish woman called police Feb. 19 to report someone stole a $350 jacket from the backseat of her friend’s vehicle while she was dining at a local restaurant. The victim wasn’t certain if the doors were locked, but there were no signs of forced entry.

Issaquah dentist wins national award BY LINDA BALL

Around Town

What’s happening around Issaquah & Sammamish

Skateboard art exhibit coming to Sammamish

LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Dr. John Liu likes to see his patients by their first birthday. Liu, a pediatric dentist, has been named the 2013 American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s Pediatric Dentist of the Year. He will receive the award May 26 in Orlando, Fla. Liu graduated from dental school in 1986, but continued his education for two additional years in pediatric dental training. He said having children as patients requires behavior management skills to deal with the kids, and to have the ability to connect with children on all different levels. His youngest patients have been infants. Some babies are born with one or two teeth, he said, which can cause problems for nursing mothers, but also for the newborn because the teeth are not strong and don’t have a strong root level. So, the teeth have to come out. He said it’s important to establish good relationships with children and their parents. “It starts with the moms and dads,” Liu said. “They must have good oral hygiene.” Liu has no hard and fast rule as to when his patients should move on to adult oral care, but he said when they graduate from high school it’s time, although he’s had a patient who stayed on until he was a junior at UW. “Usually they beg and beg to stay, even though it’s time to move on,” he said laughing.

Starting April 1, the Sammamish Arts Commission will feature the exhibit, “Jump on a Board – A Skateboard!” at City Hall.

FILE PHOTO Liu was the president of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry in 2010-2011. He is particularly proud of his work with the Ad Council, which produces public service campaigns for non-profit organizations and government agencies on issues such as improving preventive health. Liu helped shape an oral health campaign called 2min2x.org, which encourages kids to brush twice a day for two minutes. There will be public service announcements in addition to the website.

Liu said the campaign cost $3.5 million. The American Dental Association, The Dental Trade Alliance and the American Academy of periodontology each contributed $1 million, with the other $500,000 coming from the AAPD. Liu has two children, ages 10 and 12. Laughing, Liu said his partner takes care of their teeth so dad doesn’t have to do it. Staff writer Linda Ball can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.

Local boys help others through art BY kevin endejan kendejan@issaquahreporter.com

Chirag Vedullapalli might not be like most kids his age — but that’s not a bad thing. Chirag, 12, started painting and successfully selling his artwork at age 5. “He used to paint a lot and people used to come to our house and say, ‘it’s so beautiful, I want to buy it,’” said Chaitra Vedullapalli, Chirag’s mom. The Sammamish boy enjoyed his rewards at first, buying all the toys he desired. At age 9, however, his mindset changed. “After a time, toys got boring,” Chirag said. “I was thinking if I get toys for someone who would use them forever or for someone who would use them for a good cause, then it’s way more worth it.” The selfless idea resulted in the formation of Creative Children for Charity, or 3C — a nonprofit dedicated selling art to benefit children in need. Since bringing in friend and fellow artist, Amol Garg, 13, the organization has raised thousands of dollars selling art through its website. “We both like art and we both like giving to charity,” said Amol, a seventh-grader at Pine Lake Middle School. Artists who feature their products on the site pay a commission, 100 percent of which goes to charity. Some artists choose to donate all their proceeds to 3C. The two also step outside the web, hosting fundraisers in the community. The most recent, titled “Canvas & Cupcakes,”

Chirag Vedullapalli, left and Amol Garg launched Create Children for Charity, an organization that raises money for kids in need through art. kevin endejan, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter was held Feb. 21 at Beaver Lake Lodge. Kids paid a $20 entry fee to paint a cupcake canvas, then decorated their own cupcake for consumption. All of the $1,000 raised were donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This was just the first of many events the boys hope to host. In fact, they have a goal of breaking a Guinness Record by hosting a 5,000-kid art workshop and fundraiser — something they want to do before they reach high school. They also have another large goal before they reach 18.

“By that time we want to have at least one million kids who are inspired and have donated to social causes to kids because of us,” Amol said. After they reach adulthood the two already have plans of becoming chairmen of 3C, noting the company’s whole idea is meant to be for kids and to be fully run by kids. Regardless of age, the boys see art and philanthropy remaining a primary focus. “I enjoy doing it, it’s what I’m passionate about, it’s how I express my feelings,” Chirag said.

Design standards for Central Issaquah Plan on fast track BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

With Realtors and developers already inquiring into several parcels of land within the new Central Issaquah Plan, the City Council met with staff in a study session Feb. 20 to discuss design standards for the 1,100 acre commercial core. “Folks have come in and they know we’re working on these new standards and are expressing interest,” said Mark Hinthorne, special projects director for the city. The plan, approved last December, surrounds I-90, but excludes Front Street. One of the goals for the CIP is 7,500 residential units, but as Hinthorne noted, near-term the housing most likely will be rentals until the area becomes more established and people are willing to build or buy a home there. The city plans to work closely with the Chamber of Commerce to encourage small businesses and startups, Planning Manager Trish Heinonen told the council.

The boundaries of the Central Issaquah Plan area extend to both sides of I-90. The area excludes historic Front Street. CONTRIBUTED

The city doesn’t want big box stores in the CIP since people don’t like to build or buy homes near them, she said. The plan includes a bonus for developers – they can build more units if they offer affordable housing, open space or both. Another key part of the CIP is tree retention, green space and landscaping with council member Josh Schaer noting he does not want to see a “concrete dystopia

surrounded by forest.” Mobility also is a concern with traffic becoming a negative factor for many businesses. One idea offered was to speed up traffic on arterials yet slow it down in pedestrian areas. The council also had concerns about large neon signs on buildings. Lucy Sloman, the city’s land development manager, said hospitals, hotels and motels are allowed to have

It’s no stretch to understand why a community like Issaquah would want to focus on economic vitality. If the Great Recession has made anything clear, it is that job preservation, business success and economic competitiveness matter greatly for a small community’s vitality. When local business succeeds, it’s the community that reaps the benefits through increased tax revenue for local public services: police, parks, arts, infrastructure and support to local non-profits. Just as important, successful businesses provide needed employment Matt Bott to keep families stable at a time when having a steady job makes all the difference. Here are a few ways our community can work to support Issaquah’s local economy: • Much of a community’s economic growth comes from the expansion of existing businesses. Listen to our businesses’ needs…help them succeed. • If we attract out-of-town visitors and help residents find new adventures in our community, such as shopping at art galleries, staying in hotels, eating in restaurants, we can increase commercial activity. • Community branding and promotion helps a city stand out and compete based on its unique appeal. • Infrastructure investments - think Bellevue College’s future Issaquah campus, the new Swedish hospital, much needed funding to fix the Front Street/ Gilman intersection or potential state investments in Lake Sammamish State Park – helps a city grow. • Shopping local encourages residents to spend more dollars in the community. Dollars get recycled back. • Make sure the city is a welcome place to do business and one that is consistent with the community’s values. Burdensome barriers hurt business success and job growth. • Develop strategies that support local enterprises on the cutting edge of global trends…anything from high tech to health care, exporting to clean energy. • Ensure that the community is desirable for families of all income levels, with outstanding schools and a great quality of life. There are plenty of tools in the tool kit to support our local economy, and it will be exciting to see how community leaders put these concepts to work in the months and years ahead. What will you do to support Issaquah’s economy? Matthew Bott is the CEO of the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce. He writes on topics relating to business, the economy and community enhancement.

a prominent sign because they are for the public benefit. But in the case of a new building with perhaps two major tenants, only one tenant name could be displayed prominently. Schaer was not in favor of corporate neon signs on top of, for example, a 10-story building. How the city will handle signs on buildings facing I-90 is a discussion to be continued. Regarding the amount of impervious surface allowed, council member Tola Marts wants it limited, perhaps, he explained, “from growing up on Joni Mitchell,” referring to the song “Big Yellow Taxi,” which includes the line, “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.” The council is expected to adopt design standards for the CIP on April 15.

Local man wins $10K culinary tour BY KEEGAN PROSSER KPROSSER@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

Gus Campanario isn’t a professional chef. But he’s no stranger to food. “My dad owned a restaurant when I was growing up so he was always around cooking,” Campanario said. So when the Issaquah resident learned about Del Monte’s “Add Some Garden” contest – via an ad on his Facebook page – he thought it sounded Gus Campanario like fun. Launched on Nov. 5, 2012, the contest featured five phases of competition. Each phase focused on a different Del Monte canned variety and asked consumers to share how they simply “Add Some Garden” to their favorite meals by adding a can of Del Monte green beans, corn, tomatoes, peaches or pears. “I already used Del Monte products, so I combed through recipes I already made,” Campanario said. When Campanario’s first submission, a recipe for tomato sauce, didn’t come up on top, he decided to rethink the competition. “I noticed people were submitting recipes that they already made on a regular

The name would certainly be fitting as site A, a 16-acre piece of land opened to the public in 2011, has a rock on the property named “Big Rock.” Councilmember John Curley offered alternative suggestions, like switching “rock” to “boulder,” or possibly adding letters. “Can you add the ‘er’ and make it ‘Bigger’,” he asked, jokingly. Ultimately, the council asked Parks Director Jessi Bon to take the name “Big Rock Park,” back to Pigott for consideration to

basis – things like peach pie and pancakes,” Campanario said. He said he found those recipes to be too general and that they didn’t feel like the spirit of what Del Monte wanted. For the peach round, Campanario set out to find a recipe that was already good, but could be improved upon in an unexpected way. That’s when his mother’s ceviche recipe came to mind. “It was a great recipe,” Campanario said. “But it always seemed like it need a pop of color.” By adding Del Monte peaches to his Peachy Keen Ceviche, Campanario said he found the perfect balance of spicy and sweet. He beat out four other finalists and took home the Grand Prize – a culinary tour worth $10,000. A Global Account Manager for a telecom company, Campanario’s win came as somewhat of a surprise. “This is new territory,” Campanario said. “But I think it’s fair to say I will try this again.” Campanario has yet to decide when he will be cashing in on the week-long tour, which will take him and a guest to Napa Valley and San Francisco, but said he and his wife are looking forward to the trip. “For me, the wine tour sounds pretty exciting,” Campanario said. “And the cooking class.”

Longtime area coach French to lead U.S. team BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

Rugby finds new (old) home at Lake Sammamish State Park BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

The old baseball fields at Lake Sammamish State Park aren’t much to look at, on most days. But Rick Ravsten remembers when the fields were home to state championships and some of the area’s most earnest competition as the home to the Liberty rugby program, the first of its kind on the Eastside. “It was really challenging to find field space,” Ravsten said. “We stepped into Lake Sammamish by default.” Coach Josh Young and the Eastside Lions, which recently signed a three-year lease to make the park their new home and bring rugby back to the park it first called home in the region, hope the area between Northwest Sammamish Road and the south end of the lake can again bring together a community and gives a glimpse into a park’s uncertain future through its past. After operating as nomads and traveling around between Marymoor Park and local high school football fields, program director Josh Young said the Lions are thrilled with a more permanent setting they will help maintain. The group is using the field for practice this season, while it helps make improvements, and will hopes to host games there next year. “Rugby is all about community,” Young said. “We want to create a place families can come.” After beginning with only a dozen youngsters in 2007, the Lions now field teams at six levels including its mini’s program, and also operate an adult men’s team and a budding women’s program. Their growth has mirrored the increased popularity of the sport and made a more expansive locale a necessity, Young said. It also allows them

Lake Sammamish State Park Ranger Rich Benson points out the fields now used by the Eastside Lions on a map of the park. JOSH SUMAN, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter to maintain the sense of community that comes with a field capable of supporting a day full of games. “It’s already a beautiful park,” Young said. “They want it maintained well and that is what we plan to do.” Sports at Lake Sammamish State Park are nothing new and while Ranger Rich Benson said as a general principle, the state has moved away from contracting with sports clubs for use of its spaces, it could be a way to increase visibility and sell more of the Discovery Passes that are on pace for a drastic shortfall from projected revenues. A local Little League helped put in the baseball fields now used by the Lions decades ago and the Issaquah Soccer Club calls another set of fields adjacent to NW Sammamish Rd. home. Benson said lacrosse and even cricket, another sport making its way to the Eastside via expats, have also shown interest in one form or another. “We’re different from most state parks,” Benson said, noting its relatively urban location. “We have much more of a demand for that kind of thing.” The park’s location is also prime for the Lions, which draw players from the Snoqualmie Valley to Bothell and Mercer Island to Sammamish. “There are 6,000 high school students in that corridor with Eastside Catholic, Eastlake and Skyline,” Young said. “It’s the perfect spot.” Even more, it gives the program and park a connection to it’s sporting past. For Ravsten, who recently retired from coaching after nearly 30 years of bringing the game to the area, it is also a bridge for the current rugby community. “Josh has done a tremendous job,” Ravsten said. “It kind of ties in the old and the new.”

For the past eight years, Michelle French has split duty between the United States Soccer youth national teams and local select club Eastside FC, which features many of the area’s top players. Beginning on Friday her mission will become singular: take the United States Women’s U20 team to the World Cup in Canada. French was named the head coach of the U.S. Women’s U20 side last week after spending nearly a decade working with the program as a youth coaching assistant and will travel with her squad to Spain on Friday. Her task is to build an experienced staff, identify the nation’s best under-20 players and turn them into Michelle French a cohesive unit capable of taking on the world’s best. “It’s an honor and a responsibility,” French said. “You never know when you’re going to have that opportunity so when you get it, you have to grab hold of it.” While the upcoming opportunity is certainly a prestigious one, French said leaving an Eastside FC program that helped build her coaching philosophy will be difficult. Unlike the squads she coached at the club level, her U20 squad will feature collegiate-aged women with much more experience on and off the field than the teenagers she worked with previously. “The best part of coaching club soccer was the friendships and relationships with the parents and families,” she said. “Winning a game or a tournament is great, but I will always remember and cherish the relationships.” One of French and Eastside FC’s most accomplished players is Issaquah High School forward Audrey Thomas, a junior who has won back-to-back 4A KingCo Player of the Year honors. Thomas and “Frenchie”, as she is affectionately known, met eight years ago when Thomas guest-played for a team consisting of older girls and has worked with her closely in the seasons since. “I have met very few people who are as passionate about the game and the development of her players as Frenchie is,” Thomas said. “She understands us and can relate to us, so when you combine that with her drive and passion when she is being serious, you get a coach that girls want to listen to and that they respect tremendously.” French takes the reins of a U-20 team that won the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in 2012 over Germany and will look to defend its title in Canada in August of 2014.

There is a full dental clinic at Echo Glen Children’s Center. Principal Mike Williams said kids who come in who have been involved with methamphetamine usually need a great deal of dental care. LINDA BALL, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter

A breakdown of the facilities The kids at Echo Glen are housed in cottages, with 16 to 20 per building, each in their own individual cells. Each cottage is geared toward a specific type of treatment model. Upon intake, each child is tested to determine where they need to be. There are cottages for those dealing with substance abuse, sex offenses, female mental health, male mental health, anger management issues and then there are the maximum security cottages. The only cottage that is co-ed is the drug treatment cottage, but it’s divided into zones. There is one restroom per four kids, but only one is allowed in the restroom at a time. Both mental and physical health needs are met at Echo Glen, with a doctor on staff three days a week, and dentists every day. Youths who arrive with methamphetamine mouth desperately need dental work. A psychiatrist is on staff three days a week, and three consulting psychologists are always available. There are usually four security officers on duty, but some days only two due to budget cuts. But all of the staff is trained in de-escalation and dealing with resistive youth. Recreation is an integral part of daily life at Echo Glen. A large field is used for football, soccer and baseball. A gymnasium and indoor pool are on campus. One hour a day each student is expected to engage in some sort of physical activity. There is also a chapel for spiritual nourishment. The kids at Echo Glen are there six months on average but some have been there for as long as three years. Girls can stay until they are 21 – if a girl was tried as an adult and has additional time to serve a sentence, she will be transferred to an adult Department of Corrections Facility at age 21. Without any PTSA or built-in community support, the teachers at Echo have made an Amazon Wish List of books, and they are asking for broad community support. popping up all around the room. “What can’t you guys eat when you’re pregnant?” one boy wants to know.

don’t want to hold anything against them. The reason I’m here is because I think these kids can turn themselves around.” Staff writer Linda Ball can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.

An additional 4,000 students are expected in Lake Washington School District schools over the next nine years, according to the latest enrollment projections. That will require more classroom space, Superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce and Deputy Superintendent Janene Fogard told the school board at its Feb. 11 meeting. The district had 25,408 students as of October 2012. Pierce added that school officials are doing preliminary planning for funding measures that may be put on the February 2014 ballot. Her goal, she told the board, is to have a recommendation to the board by late May or June. A bond measure could include funding to build new schools or additions to current schools. Another option could include changing feeder patterns or boundaries to send students to schools where there is more room. The area served by Eastlake High School shows a need for space for 236 students at the high school level and 124 at middle school by 2021-22. Total capacity including portables will provide enough space for elementary schools.

Year Up founder to speak at BC foundation fundraiser Gerald Chertavian, founder of Year Up, a nationwide network of training and education programs for low-income young adults, will be the featured speaker at Bellevue College Foundation’s 14th Annual “Become Exceptional” Luncheon on May 1. The event, which raised nearly $280,000 last year, provides funding for academic and need-based scholarships, as well as programs that support educational opportunities for BC students. Chertavian began his career in banking on Wall Street and, after earning an MBA from Harvard University, co-founded Conduit Communications, which he helped grow to $20 million in annual revenues with 130 employees in three countries. After

selling the company in 1999, he founded Year Up. The luncheon is free to attend, but guests are encouraged to make a donation. More information and to RSVP is available by calling 425-564-2386, emailing foundation@bellevuecollege. edu or online at bellevuecollege.edu/foundation and clicking on Events.

ECHO GLEN room – treats the students later will give to another class. The students also were planning an event for staff and state workers for which they would prepare all the food. “I love it here — it’s my home away from home,” said Pat Barry, who started as a teacher’s assistant seven years ago. The kids really like being in her class, Barry said, because it’s an elective. Students can earn a a two-year certificate in food handling, which can help them get work in a grocery store, restaurant or anywhere food is involved. They also get a chance to cater, learn to make nutritious meals on a budget and how to use leftovers. “They make freezer meals for Timber Lake Church, which distributes the meals to various needy organizations,” Barry said. She pays for the ingredients out of her own pocket. Next door in parenting class, Debbie McBee, who has taught at Echo Glen for 23 years, has the kids engrossed in a lesson on the male reproductive system. Her goal is to teach them how to properly raise children, to learn about sex and abuse — in terms other than slang. The course begins with teaching them abstinence but often it’s too late. The parenting class was requested by the courts McBee said, for pregnant girls and expectant fathers, not unheard of in Echo Glen. She uses a closet full of mechanical babies to teach the kids how to take care of an infant. One boy will have a 3-year-old when he gets out of Echo Glen, so this is a valuable tool McBee said. The class produces lots of questions, with hands
