Panhandling in Redmond

Microsoft hosts Technology Education and Literacy in Schools Field Trip Samantha Pak

The Washington State Legislature recently passed a bill that will allow computer science (CS) to be counted as a math or science requirement toward high school graduation. While the bill still needs to be

signed by Gov. Jay Inslee to become law, Redmond-based Microsoft Corp. has been working to bring CS to high schools throughout the area for a number of years. Through the company’s Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) program, company employees team up with schools to teach high schoolers

how computers work. On Monday, Microsoft took this to the next level by hosting the TEALS Field Trip, a conference for middle school and high schoolers, which brought more than 800 students from more than a dozen Puget Sound-area schools to its Redmond campus. [ more microsoft page 5 ]

Body of missing 29-year-old Redmond man found in Lake Sammamish Samantha Pak

Last Thursday, the King County Sheriff Marine/Dive/ Rescue Unit found the body of 29-year-old Redmond resident Sathish Periasamy in Lake Sammamish near Idylwood Beach Park in Redmond. According to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office, the cause of death was

drowning and the manner was suicide. Jim Bove, spokesperson for the Redmond Police Department, said Periasamy was last seen April 19 and was reported missing on April 22. “We found his vehicle right around the Idylwood Park area on Tuesday (April 23),” he said. Bove said a K-9 unit was brought in after this, leading them to the dock. The marine

unit conducted an initial search in the lake on Tuesday but were unsuccessful. Bove said this is not uncommon as the water is deep and murky. He said divers went back in the water two days later and found Periasamy’s body at 12:19 p.m. A Facebook page was created to help with the search when Periasamy first went missing but it was taken down when he

was found. Officials suspect no foul play and Bove said before Periasamy was found, they suspected suicide because investigators found a note he left before he went missing. The medical examiner’s office later confirmed this. Bove said this is not the first time a body has been found in Lake Sammamish, though he does not know the exact num-

ber or the most recent case. “We have found a few over the last several years that were drug related or suicide related,” he said. In addition to living in Redmond, Bove said Periasamy worked in Redmond, as well, at Microsoft. “Our thoughts are with (Periasamy’s) family and friends,” he said.

Real Change News vendors are on the job, making a living Samantha Pak

While some human-services agencies are focused on offering immediate assistance, Real Change News provides homeless and low-income individuals with a steady source of income through its Vendor Services program. The Seattle-based newspaper employs about 300 vendors per month. The vendors, who sell the publication, are mostly in Seattle, but they are located throughout the Puget Sound area — including Redmond.

For those who want to help, Bove said people should not give monetary donations because they don’t know what the money will be used for. “If they are homeless, then we have been told by

advocates that socks and toiletries are good things to give them and they will normally take and appreciate them,” he said, adding that if someone is in front of a grocery store, people can ask them what they need and buy them something to eat or drink. Bove also suggested people put individuals asking for help in touch with local social services such as the Together Center. Kelly said people can also call 211, the number for King County’s Crisis Clinic. Through the Crisis Clinic people can connect with health and human services in a number of areas including food, shelter and

housing, rent and utility assistance, legal assistance, financial assistance, governmental assistance programs, health care, employment, education and family support programs. There is also a directory of human-services providers on the City of Redmond website at d5efrvm. The city provides financial support to some of these agencies, as well. Kelly said if people want to help, there are a number of ways they can do so. They can volunteer with any of the organizations listed on the city’s directory, donate money or provide meals for the local shelters.

Adults can help teens who are stressed and depressed In my last column, I shared with you some of the drug trends in our local neighborhoods. As alarming as drug and alcohol use may be, there are other issues plaguing our kids. Chief among them are stress and depression. Stress comes from a lifestyle of always being connected, problems at school, overachieving expectations from parents and a rigorous academic load. The important thing is for kids to learn ways to de-stress with music, exercise and down time. Depression is also a major issue among kids today and likely at the root of the increases in teen suicides seen in the area over the past year. In the Healthy Youth Survey, taken by students in all public schools across the state, 23 percent of local eighth-, 10th- and 12thgraders have felt depressed in the past year. It’s most alarming that 14 percent seriously contemplated suicide. The best thing for kids who are depressed is professional help. Adolescence is a time when the brain is growing and changing, and it’s often the time that mental health issues begin to emerge. One in every five young people suffers from mental health issues at any given time. Unfortunately an estimated two-thirds of them are not receiving the help they need. Many kids are also dealing with being bullied, sometimes every day. Bullying is not a new problem, but with the Internet, we’re seeing it take different forms and Patti Skelton-McGougan


Question of the week:




[4] May 3, 2013

escalate to the point that the young people who have been bullied commit suicide, as happened just recently with an Issaquah teen. Sometimes the bullying takes the form of social isolation, other times it may be physical or verbal. And sometimes it occurs in texts or via social media sites. Kids who are bullied don’t enjoy school, and many suffer with the effects of bullying well into adulthood. Parents should check in with their children and ask specifically about bullying. Do they know at least one adult at their school they could talk to if they or a friend was being bullied? If not, help them consider who that might be. Also advise children to avoid bullies and try to stick with a friend at recess, on the bus or when walking home. And encourage them to stick up for others who are being bullied.

Another problem many of our young people are dealing with is teen-dating violence. In a recent survey, nearly one in 10 teens reported they had been physically abused by a romantic partner in the past 12 months. In another survey, more than 80 percent reported emotional abuse. And one in four reported being threatened or harassed online or using texts. Youth Eastside Services offers the only area resource for teen-dating violence. In addition to specialized individual counseling, there is a support group and a peer prevention/education program to help teens recognize and avoid violent or controlling relationships. Believe it or not, some of our young people don’t know that love shouldn’t hurt. [ more teens page 5 ]

Tree City USA? An item in the Reporter noted that Redmond has been designated a “Tree City” by the Arbor Day Foundation for the 14th year. To qualify for this honor, a city must “designate staff to care for trees, appoint a citizen tree board to advocate for community forestry, establish a tree ordinance, spend at least $2 per capita on tree care and celebrate Arbor Day.” Redmond is missing one critical element of these qualifications…a citizen tree board to advocate for community forestry. The City of Redmond relies upon staff members to manage community trees and uses citizen volunteers for forest restoration manpower, but decidedly not for policy suggestions. We know because Sustainable Redmond has advocated for a citizen tree board consistently over the last year and has just as consistently been rebuffed. As we observed Earth Day and Arbor Day in 2012, both Sustainable Redmond and neighbors of the Redmond Bike Park were appealing city decisions permitting considerable loss of tree cover in our community. Lack of a responsive public engagement process figured in both of these appeals and resulted in proposed amendments to Redmond’s Comprehensive Plan by Sustainable Redmond that are scheduled for an upcoming City Council vote on May 7. Realizing that hard data on tree losses can be more persuasive than passionate testimony, Sustainable Redmond conducted a research project on tree pro-

tection practices from 2010 to the present. Preliminary findings were presented to the City Council on April 2. In the 24 projects reviewed from throughout the city in that time period affecting 6,161 trees, we found that 3,892 trees were lost and 2,223 retained, just over the minimal retention standards of 35 percent. Because Redmond has a “no net loss of trees” provision, those mature trees removed will be replaced with saplings, but the loss of habitat, amount of air cleaned, storm water mitigated and community character preserved will take several generations to recover. “Exceptions” to tree protection regulations were routinely requested by developers and just as routinely approved by administrators. Opportunities for public involvement in the permitting process are minimal in comparison to development interests. We realize that Redmond will continue to develop in accord with long-term community visions. A tree board presents an opportunity for residents to participate in the process more fully, identifying and resolving conservation issues as they emerge. Therefore, we ask that you contact your council members and encourage them to harness the competencies and commitment of Redmond’s residents in an advisory group such as the Tree USA program requires. See standards.cfm for more information.

Thanks, Judge Korman When a federal court recently ruled that the FDA must lift the age restriction and allow emergency contraception to be accessible, over the counter, to all ages, people started screaming, “abortion pill.” Not this again? Scientific research has determined that emergency contraception is NOT an abortion pill. Let’s have a quick science lesson: it may take sperm as long as six days to fertilize an egg after sex. Emergency contraception works by postponing ovulation, which prevents sperm from coming in contact with and fertilizing the egg. So, what does that make emergency contraceptives like Plan B and Ella? Exactly what their name says — contraception. Even the official journal of the Catholic Health Association, “Health Progress,” confirmed in 2010, what many people already know — emergency contraception does not cause abortion. Yet now that the issue is back in the limelight of the media, opponents of women’s rights to health care and choice are once again screaming “abortion pill!” based on fear and a gross lack of scientific knowledge. We should applaud Judge Edward Korman for his wisdom and foresight in preventing unplanned pregnancies.

Although small student groups have visited the Microsoft campus in the past to learn more about the company and different opportunities in the field, Akhtar Badshah, senior director of citizenship and public affairs at Microsoft, said the TEALS Field Trip event was the first time the company has held such an event on a large scale. Badshah, who manages TEALS, said the hope is to make it an annual event.


The event began with a video discussing the importance of CS in today’s technology-centered society, opening remarks by TEALS founder Kevin Wang and founder Hadi Partovi. During his speech, Partovi shared some statistics with the group. He said out of all the students in the country enrolled in math or science classes, only two percent are tak-

ing classes related to CS or computer programming. On the other hand, Partovi said 60 percent of math and science jobs have some sort of CS or computer programming element. “What’s wrong with this?” he asked the crowd. Partovi told the students they were part of a rare group who have access to courses in this evergrowing and increasingly relevant field. Others aren’t as lucky. “Nine out of 10 schools

don’t even have (CS) on the menu,” he said about such courses’ availability. Monday’s event also featured a question-and-answer session with a panel of industry professionals and an opportunity fair. At the fair, students were also able to talk with representatives from local colleges and universities such as DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, University of Washington (with representatives from the Seattle and Bothell campuses) and Seattle

In addition, the fair also featured representatives from tech-related companies such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook and ArenaNet — all of whom are based in the Pacific Northwest or have local campuses. Students were able to talk with people currently in the industry, pick their brains and ask questions — an opportunity Felipe Romero of

LWSD launches ‘Signature Programs’ at luncheon Eighth annual event brings in more than $216,000 in donations Raechel Dawson

State legislators, council members, educators and parents were among a record-number of 562 guests at the Lake Washington Schools Foundation’s eighth annual benefit luncheon on Wednesday. The Legacy for Learning gathering, held at Juanita High School (JHS), was to ensure that students could succeed — despite the mounting odds against them today — as long as the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) can implement its new “Signature Programs,” designed to hone in on the in-demand 21st century skills, which are desperately needed in today’s work force. And with more than $216,600 in donations to the foundation, an amount exceeding the district’s fund-raising goal, LWSD students may see the threeperiod long “Signature Programs” as early as this fall. “Currently, Washington state is struggling with finding funding for basic education,” said LWSD Superintendent Traci Pierce. “And in Lake Washington School District, we’re striving to implement programs that are far beyond basic. (But) basic isn’t good enough.

Basic will not lead to our students being future ready.” According to Pierce, the science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, educational approach will be the focus of the programs because of the growing skills gap so many employers, such as Microsoft Corp., have reported. “At the same time employers are finding that young people are not prepared to be successful in the work place, global problems in our world are mounting,” Pierce said. “Acts of terror, threats of nuclear war, environmental disasters, failing urban infrastructure and decay, political unrest, new antibiotic resistant virus strains and attacks on cyber security are recorded almost every day.” Although the school district opened a STEM high school last fall, Pierce said it is important for every LWSD high school to have a focused “Signature Program” and will be available to all high schools in the district within the next two years. However, Redmond High School (RHS), JHS, Emerson High School (EHS) and STEM School will begin the program this September. The vision, “Every Student Future Ready,

prepared for college, prepared for the global work force, prepared for personal success,” has prompted the district to connect educational content to real world situations. Teacher Gregg McDonald with RHS explained their program will focus on the policies, problems and solutions surrounding global health. “The social studies content of the program will involve an examination of the social, political and cultural issues facing medical professionals globally, using a problem-based model,” he said. “Students might investigate what cultural challenges have impacted vaccination efforts in parts of Africa and the Middle East and develop a plan for how best these challenges can be overcome.” Rebecca Townsend, a teacher at JHS, looks forward to partnering with Evergreen Health Medical Center to bring real world applications of global health that aren’t available in the classroom as her students also study global health issues. EHS students will learn about food and sustainability during the last six weeks of school. In addition to reading and analyzing

On April 19, 20 students from Emily Dickinson Elementary School in Redmond won the team championship in their division at the Math is Cool Competition, held at Mt. Rainier High School in Des Moines. The students, led by fourth-grade teacher Carol Woodard, competed against a number of schools, including seven from the Lake Washington School District (LWSD). The competition included a timed individual test, a mental math section and a four-person math relay that required all team member to correctly complete a problem in succession. There was also a “game show” component in which teams competed head to head with other schools in

ing and sustainable design, digital media and game design and forensics/psychology. Keynote speaker CEO and president of Alaska Airlines Brad Tilden praised teachers, parents and staff members of the LWSD for helping to provide for the next generation, as well as

a race to ring the bell and provide the correct answer. The Dickinson team was led by Shrey Srivastava, who received fourth place in the individual honors. The team also featured fourth graders Alexander Kovsky, Seth Kreysar, Hayden Chu, Tyler Chu, Ethan Vayman, Rahan Shankar, Noelle Rembiszewski and Khushi Vyas and third graders Ishaan Mirchandani, Kavya Gajjar, Purvakshi Rathmore, Annika Singh, Dhwani Porecha, Michael Stavropoulos, Kenneth Butcher, Kate Cannistra, Olivia Woolsey, Shreya Munda and Karli Kostoff. Woodard is in her 18th year at Dickinson and has taught the school’s Math Club since 1999. This year, 23 students have participated in the third-grade Math Club and 29 in the fourth and fifth-grade Math Club.

Diagnosing GERD

In younger children and babies, doctors might run tests to diagnose GERD or rule out other problems. Such tests may include a Barium swallow, pH

sometimes suggest lightly thickening the formula or breast milk with rice cereal. Making sure the baby is seated or held upright during feedings can also help. Raising the head of a child’s bed 6 to 8 inches may help minimize reflux that occurs at night. Other conditions that can contribute to GERD may need to be addressed, including obesity, alcohol consumption, smoking and certain medications. Older kids may find relief by avoiding foods and drinks that seem to trigger GERD symptoms. Try to keep track of the foods that seem to bring on [ more gerd page 8 ]

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) affects millions of people in the U.S., including 7 million children. Frequent heartburn after eating big or spicy meals, a bitter taste in your mouth and burping are all possible signs of GERD. These symptoms are due to stomach contents leaking backward into the esophagus (reflux). This can happen because the muscle that connects the esophagus with the stomach (the esophageal sphincter) relaxes at the wrong time or doesn’t properly close. Everyone has experienced heartburn at one time or another, and may never have cause for concern. With GERD, however, the reflux is much more frequent and causes discomfort, called acid indigestion, and the burning feeling can reach all the way to the neck and throat. Over time, this leads to inflammation and ulcers in the esophagus, which can eventually lead to esophageal cancer. If your child experiences symptoms more than twice a week, and/or lasting up to two hours, GERD should be considered. In babies with GERD, breast milk or formula is regularly spit up. Vomiting may be frequent, especially after meals. Most babies outgrow the condition between the time they are 1 and 2 years old once their digestive systems mature. But in some cases, GERD symptoms persist through childhood and into adulthood. Kids with developmental or neurological conditions, such as cerebral palsy, are more at risk for GERD. In infants and young children, problems associated with GERD may include: • Breathing problems like choking or wheezing, if stomach contents get into the windpipe and lungs • Irritability or crying with feeding • Refusal to eat, or in limited amounts • Dental problems due to acid erosion of tooth enamel • Stomach pain • Failure to gain weight • Recurrent pneumonia • Colic

probe study, gastric emptying study, or an upper endoscopy. In older kids, doctors usually can diagnose GERD by doing a physical exam and hearing about the symptoms. Sometimes your child’s dentist may be the first health-care professional to identify GERD since one major sign is dental erosion, where the surfaces of the teeth dissolve away due to the repeated exposure to stomach acid. If dental erosion has been

Guard against GERD

identified, here’s what you can do to protect your child’s teeth: • Avoid brushing your teeth immediately after a reflux episode. Brushing may damage enamel that has just been weakened by acid. • Chew sugar-free gum. Chewing gum stimulates saliva flow, which buffers acid in your mouth. • To reduce the risk of demineralization of your teeth, ask your dentist about fluoride mouth rinses and prescription fluoride toothpastes.

symptoms in your child. Such foods may include: • Citrus fruits • Chocolate • Foods with caffeine • Fatty or fried foods • Garlic and onions • Spicy foods • Tomato-based foods and sauces • Peppermint Good foods to combat acid reflux include lean protein, high-fiber foods like lentils, beans and whole grains and fruits and vegetables (other than citrus). When the above measures aren’t enough to relieve the symptoms, your doctor may also prescribe medication, such as H2 blockers (ex. Zantac), which can help block the production of stomach acid, or proton pump inhibitors (ex. Prilosec, Prevacid, Nexium), which reduce the amount of acid the stomach produces.

for use in their continuous improvement process. Parents and community members are invited to take part. The survey is open now and will be through May 13. To take the survey, visit d2mhnq8.

County Council sends proposed parks levy to August ballot “Voters will decide in August whether to continue supporting a parks levy that provides funding to operate and maintain parks like Marymoor and Cougar Mountain, and to expand the regional trail system,” said Council member Larry Phillips, chair of the Transportation, Economy and Environment Committee. The King County Parks system has evolved from 150 acres in 1938 to more than

Experience the Wonderful, Creative Atmosphere of All your Beading & Wire Working Needs – Including Classes • Semi-Precious Stone • Wire & Wireworking Tools • Glass Beads

26,000 acres today. Today, regional county parks and trails include Marymoor Park, Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park, the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center and the Sammamish River Trail. “This proposal funds operation of our current parks and regional trail system, and provides funds to acquire open spaces, and critical habitat lands,” said Council member Rod Dembowski.

“I thank the Citizens Parks Levy Task Force for its work in proposing this renewed levy program.” The adopted legislation sends to voters a six-year property tax levy lid lift of 18.77 cents per $1,000 of assessed value — an estimated $56 per year for the owner of a home valued at $300,000. If approved by voters, the proceeds from the levy would go toward funding the maintenance and operation of


King County’s 200 parks, 175 miles of regional trails, and 26,000 acres of open space. Levy funds would also be used to expand the regional trails system — including developing the Lake to Sound Trail — and to expand the Community Partnership and Grant program, as well as to support local city parks and the Woodland Park Zoo.

“I want to thank the County Council for giving people the opportunity to support our open space and parks,” County Executive Dow Constantine said. “I also want to thank the King County Parks Levy Task Force members for their thoughtful recommendations on how to keep and maintain our parks with the voters’ support.”

dressed-up and energetic crowd included EMP Sound Off finalists As It Starts, Kirkland’s This Is Your Captain Speaking and RHS’s Sibling Rivalry, Synonym Toast Crunch and Box.

rounded out the night’s theme. “It’s always fun playing shows at the OFH, but there’s something about prom that’s just more exciting and brings people out,” said Sibling Rivalry guitarist Jake Campbell. OFH Youth Leadership board member Jasmine KozakGilroy added, “I like it because it’s not like a real prom, but more of a vintage prom with food and bands and not just for seniors.”
