300 call on legislators to pass budget at rally


early 300 Kirkland residents and members of political action committees chanted “Courage for kids” and “Kids and families first” at a rally on Wednesday evening to let legislators know they want a budget passed - and one that reflects amply funded education as well. Meanwhile, Washington state Sen. Andy Hill supporters attempted to block protesters with high-held picket signs on the sidewalk near the rally at Heritage Park in Kirkland. The rally, organized by Our Economic Future coalition, was to call on Sen. Hill, R-Redmond, and Sen. Rodney Tom, D-Medina,

to pass a state budget before the inaction causes a government shutdown on July 1. But the protesters not only want a budget before government shuts down. Many, who were with the Washington Education Association, want a budget that is aligned with the Washington Supreme Court’s mandate for the Legislature to amply fund education. Proposed budgets only allocate $250 to $300 million in additional revenue for education, despite the McCleary decision, which calls for $1 billion this year alone, said Steven Miller, who is vice president-elect of the Washington Education Association.

Girl’s memory lives on, project helps students at Peter Kirk

Remembering a man who preserved city’s history BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ


After months of helping their peers at recess, 33 fifth-graders at Peter Kirk Elementary will pass on their duties at Kelsey’s Corner to next year’s students. The five-month-old Kelsey’s Corner project was created in January with a mission to make recess more engaging by encouraging volunteers to befriend or connect others with fun games during recess. It was started to honor fifth-grader Kelsey Jensen who came up with the idea, but unexpectedly passed away soon after the initial project launched last year. Every day at recess the students alternate between days to meet at a corner on the outskirts of the Peter Kirk

Kelsey Jensen, a fifth-grader at Peter Kirk Elementary, died unexpectedly last December. Last school year, she created a project in which student volunteers help fellow students during recess. Students this year have carried on her project – now called Kelsey’s Corner – in her memory. CONTRIBUTED playground. They put on special vests and bring out a tub of toys and sports equipment. “They spread around the playground and look for those kids that really don’t have anything to play, or you know, they don’t have any friends, or they want to play a game but aren’t sure how to get into it,” said Erika Keck, a fourth-grade teacher and coorganizer of Kelsey’s Corner. “So they’re just kind of on the lookout for those kids who maybe are just walking by

themselves … because that was a really big concern for Kelsey.” Last spring, then-fourthgraders Kelsey and her best friend created Kid’s Corner in an effort to give their peers something more to do during recess, such as playing new games or meeting new friends. “They really wanted to keep a positive spin on it,” said Kelsey’s mom Carol Jensen. “It wasn’t a place for kids [ more KELSEY page 5 ]

Robert Glen Burke did not tie himself to the old church or even lay down in front of it to protest its demolition in 1999. But he did so metaphorically before the Kirkland City Council, and in a way that was graceful in the true Burke fashion that he was known for. “The council did not have much of an appetite for saving the building and was inclined to just let it be demolished,” recalled Santos Contreras, who served on the council when the 1922 Christian Science Church was spared from demolition. “Bob would not

Time for lawmakers to pass budget, go home


tate lawmakers have 231 million good reasons to agree on a new two-year state budget. Revenue forecasts predict an additional $231 million in revenue during this fiscal year and over the next two years. That money, plus $90 million in savings from fewer services being needed, could be enough to do a deal and go home. There could be an end to the Legislature’s special sessions after all. Or, as Sen. Rodney Tom, D-Medina, so aptly put it: “We should just be able to say OK … let’s wrap up the people’s business and move on.” The Legislature is now into its second special session. If lawmakers can’t come up with a budget by the end of the month, the state could begin to shut down non-essential services. There’s no need for that. Both the Republic/Democrat coalition in the Senate and the Democrat-controlled House have been sparring over a number of other issues. House Democrats want to end some tax breaks. The

Senate Coalition wants to make changes in such things as the state’s workers’ compensation system. Both houses are using these and other measures as trading chips to get an agreement on the budget. While discussion on such issues is justified, it isn’t as

critical as making sure the state has money to pay its bills come July 1. Our lawmakers have spent enough time in Olympia. It’s time to craft and pass a budget and go home.

Fireworks and Asians A recent letter writer asks how Asians feel about fireworks, implying we should dislike them because they have had no other association throughout history than wanton American killing of Asians. This Asian feels absolutely great about American fireworks. And about Blue Angels’ jet noise too. Maybe not warm and cozy, but definitely safe, and alive. Many of the Asians in King County wouldn’t be here – or anywhere – without the American strength they represent. American firepower saved far more Asians than it killed. My ancestors survived World War II in southern China. My parents, as young children, saw many of their friends dead on the streets, killed by Japanese soldiers. If it weren’t for American firepower, the Imperial Japanese Army likely would’ve massacred them and millions more, repeating the 1937 “Rape of Nanking” in dozens of cities. I hear no disapproval of that from the letter writer. Fireworks were invented in China, 600-700 years before there even was a white America. Asianon-Asian war casualties, in terms of percentage of population, go back thousands of years before that and far exceed the rates of any war America has been involved in. There certainly were fireworks celebrating Chinese victories. I hear no disapproval of that from the letter writer. The Communist Chinese, who would’ve killed my grandparents if the Japanese didn’t, killed somewhere between 10 and 50 million of their fellow countrymen for purely political reasons. I hear no disapproval of that from the letter writer. Pol Pot killed one-third of his country. The north Vietnamese, after defeating the south and then defeating the Viet Cong – and throw in a short war against China in 1979 – killed hundreds of thousands. Captured female soldiers were subjected to unspeakably and gratuitously violent and demeaning tortures such as being formed into chain gangs by stringing barbed wire through their female parts. I hear no disapproval of that from the letter writer. The writer might not like the sound of fireworks, but I imagine he’d much more dislike the sounds of friends screaming from enemy gunshot wounds outside his doorstep like my parents heard, of

enemy planes and exploding enemy bombs in his neighborhood, and of enemy firing squads executing him for criticizing their fireworks. I gratefully celebrate the sounds honoring those American service members who protect him from those fates that killed far more Asians than Americans did.

Better education funding without slashing social services I live in Kirkland, in the 48th Legislative District, and I am a volunteer through Page Ahead as a storyteller to five kindergarten classes and one first-grade class in a poverty area in south Seattle. Compared to our elementary schools in the Kirkland area, this district has very little to support these kids. The storytelling and reading efforts have many statistical measures indicating student improvement. Sounds good, right? But when you go to the classrooms and see the kids trying to stay awake - the ones who have difficulty concentrating because they are hungry, the ones who come in a mishmash of clothing because they can’t afford more, or the ones who are obviously sick and have not had treatment - you begin to wonder about not only educational funding, but also the family food and health needs. This school district has one of the highest “movement” rates of any in our state, i.e. parents who are constantly having to move to cheaper housing, or to get jobs elsewhere, etc. Tax support declines each time. I can attest to the quality of the teachers and the administration in this school district. They are committed, determined and focused on growing each student into a successful citizen. They give of themselves enormously for very little recognition. Every student is important to them. They have very few resources. Funding education more strongly (a court requirement) is necessary - but tying it to the reduction of social services (specifically hunger and health-related services) makes no sense. The Hill/Tom combination professes “prudence” and responsibility, but instead resists the obvious in-

equality of taxation, closing of loopholes and preys upon political gain. Contrary to the Hill/Tom effort, we can have both - better education funding, and save social services if we focus on closing tax loopholes and redirection of subsidies to the education and social services arena. We are citizens of our entire state; we need to think beyond just Kirkland and consider that the next brilliant idea for our education, economy, and governance may come from just one of the students that our current system is making it more difficult to succeed. Just one student – I have 143. Imagine! This – as one of the presenters in the rally indicated – is really an “easy” decision. It’s time our legislators thought about the needs of our citizens rather than being Pollyannas and looking for publicity that might move them to the next political position.

Kirkland’s fireworks saved Friends and community members of Kirkland, we did it! Because of hundreds of donations, big and small, and because Nytec CEO, Richard Lerz stepped up to close the gap, we will have a fabulous 4th of July, including fireworks over the lake. Lerz stated that Nytec, a 35-year-old electron design and engineering company, is ecstatic to help make Kirkland’s 4th of July a huge success this year. Nytec will be opening a 20,000-square-foot stateof-the-art facility in late 2013. They have adopted the Sixth Street trail crossing portion of the Cross Kirkland Corridor, which is the property they will occupy and on June 11 participated with future neighbor Google and members of both Moss Bay and Everest neighborhoods in a cleanup and clearing of the tracks. Their new facility plans to incorporate the corridor into their landscape and design plan, with features such as outdoor art, open space, picnic benches and gathering places along the track. With this donation, Nytec joins an incredible membership of major sponsors of our 4th of July celebration, including premier parade sponsor and longest-term supporter, Lee Johnson Auto Family, as well as the city of Kirkland, Fairfax Hospital, Wave Broadband and Overlake Oil.

However, a spokesman for Hill said the Senate budget allocates $1 billion in additional funding for education and the House of Representatives allocated $905 million in their base budget as well as $1 billion in a proposal if specific tax increases were enacted. The two senators have significant influence on the budget process, as Hill is the chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee and Tom is the leader for the Senate Majority Coalition Caucus. The Legislature is in the midst of a second special session due to a lack of compromise, and rally-goers believe Republican leaders in the Senate have held the budget “hostage” in an attempt to pass policy bills. “It’s already starting to affect us because we’re at the end of the school year and our principals are trying to plan for next year,” said Miller, who is also a social studies teacher in the Bellevue School District. “They don’t know if they’re going to be able to fill all of their positions. This is not a budget issue, this is the state Republican senators trying to force policy down everyone’s throat in the second special session.” But Hill said in a statement on Thursday the Legislature has all of the resources they need to pass a budget. And in just the past week have they had $480 million in additional money become available, which is “more than enough to bridge the gap between the Senate and House of Representatives.” “My colleague Senate Majority Leader Rodney Tom has made it explicitly clear that a suite of reform bills have been removed from negotiations in order to get leadership from the House of Representatives to commit to passing a budget,” Hill said. “There is absolutely no reason that we cannot and should not finish our work quickly and I’m continuing to have comprehensive negotiations with the Governor and House of Representatives.” Hill said a government shutdown is “completely out of the question” and that both sides will immediately come together over a final plan. Hill said the Senate budget plan has $200 million more for basic education than the House of Representatives’ plan. However, Kirkland City Councilwoman Shelley Kloba spoke at the rally and urged citizens to get involved and write to legislators about how they are affected by budget decisions. She told the community to stand together to demand legislators agree on a budget that does not present

the “false choice” between education and critical needs of the most vulnerable. “We can build a worldclass education system but if the kids are hungry and stressed because of instability in their home environments, then we will not be successful,” said Kloba. “It is so important to provide the support that families need so they don’t have to choose between healthcare and putting food on the table.” She said the Kirkland community values all people and that the budget needs to reflect the realities of diverse families that are consistent with the values of a strong education and a stable family. However, three Hill supporters think many statefunded programs should simply be shutdown. “Taxes are already too high,” said Bob Abbot. “Spending is out of control. Many programs in the state should simply be abandoned and shutdown.” Dale Fonk said Hill is doing a fabulous job as leader of the Ways and Means Committee and thinks “these folks” want more money on top of the proposed $1 billion to education the Senate budget proposal calls for. “The claim about holding the budget hostage could be applied equally to the Governor’s office or the House,” Fonk said. “They’re all digging in their heels and so you can’t point your finger at any one of them and say they’re holding the budget hostage any more than any of the others.” Some rally attendees criticized both legislators. Kirkland resident Vicki Neumeier, who works as a Seattle nurse, said Hill and Tom are putting tax breaks for special interests ahead of funding healthcare for parttime state employees, which include part time nurses, she adds.

...Senior Lifestyles Madison House resident to turn 104 years old Helen Haberkamp, a resident of Madison House Retirement in Kirkland, will turn 104 years old on June 29. There are several lessons she’s learned in her lifetime. “Always pay your bills,”

she said. She also feels it is very important to get out of her apartment every day, “even if you don’t feel like it and see what’s going on.” Haberkamp was born in Arlington, Ill. in 1909. She was raised in the Lutheran – Missouri Synod and she attended parochial school, which taught in both English and German. She learned to

read the Bible in German. She was born the eldest in her family. Her younger sister is 101 and her baby sister recently passed away at 89 years old. She has a daughter and son, two grandsons and three great-grandchildren. Haberkamp worked for the U.S. Postal Service after raising her children and, after retirement, worked in private childcare. She loves

children and also taught Sunday school for eight years, saying, “It is wonderful to see what kids think.” She finally stopped driving at 95 when she retired at Madison House. She travelled extensively around the world until well into her 90s. She went on an African safari, saw the Great Wall of China and even rode on the Trans-Siberian Railroad in Russia.

[ BURKE from page 1] firm McConnell/Burke, Inc. He brought his background in architecture and urban planning to the city of Kirkland when he served as chair on the city’s Planning Commission in the 80s. “Robert really cared about preserving a sense of place in Kirkland,” said Barbara Loomis, who met Burke on the Planning Commission and was his significant other for more than 25 years. She said Burke helped to “restore the historic fabric” in Kirkland to create that sense of place. “Robert, because he was a planner, years ago was able to convince the city to get into place in the Comprehensive Plan and zoning code language that the city does want to preserve its community character and sense of place,” said Loomis. So years later when Burke fought to save the building that is now Heritage Hall, he was able to point out that language to the council, she said. “He was a visionary who realized part of our past is also a part of our future,” said

She now lives in Portland, Ore. and plans to attend Burke’s celebration of life on July 6 with her husband. “I know one of my favorite things to do is to go back to Kirkland and see that building sitting there in the park,” added Muse. Dave Ramsey, former city manager, recalled working with Burke when the city acquired the former church building and moved it from First Street by City Hall to Heritage Park. “I think this project illustrated Bob’s very effective working style,” said Ramsey. “He was a passionate advocate for preserving Kirkland’s history and it’s heritage … yet he was a very effective working partner. That’s a tricky combination to achieve and Bob did it with passion, but also with grace and humor.” He said Burke often spoke up during council meetings to speak about land-use and

Comprehensive Plan issues. “Sometimes he was applauding the city, sometimes he was encouraging us to do better and sometimes he even disagreed with what we were doing,” said Ramsey. “But he was effective that he could do all of the above and come out of it with everyone’s respect.” Loomis said before Heritage Hall came along, Burke stored some of Kirkland Heritage Society’s collection in a bedroom at his home, including thousands of photographs of historic Kirkland. The organization also did not have a centralized meeting place. “We were meeting at the Kirkland Library, the Kirkland Congregational Church - wherever we possibly could,” she recalled. “Moving in to Heritage Hall gave us the opportunity to move everything together in one place.” Burke also helped raise $250,000 for the restoration of Heritage Hall, and even designed a glass case that currently stores some of the organization’s collection. Other historical contributions that Burke made to the city include convincing the city in 1994 to put into its Comprehensive Plan a policy to celebrate the city’s centennial in 2005; organizing the city’s Peter Kirk Family Reunion event and he was the “primary watchdog” in the effort to restore the historic Anderson Ferry clock in downtown Kirkland that was re-dedicated in January, said Sue Contreras. Loomis said Burke was so passionate about historical preservation that he even moved his 1910 craftsman bungalow years ago from Totem Lake to the Norkirk neighborhood, where he renovated the home. A celebration of Burke’s life will be held at 5 p.m. Saturday, July 6 at Heritage Hall. Remembrances can be made in his memory to the Kirkland Heritage Society.

Kirkland man receives hero award for saving man’s life The Kirkland City Council and the Kirkland Fire Department recently recognized David Gregg for performing CPR on a pedestrian last month. City officials presented Gregg with a Citizen Hero Award for his life-saving efforts during the June 18 council meeting. Gregg was riding his bicycle to the library during lunchtime on May 4 when he came upon Kent Besaw face down on the shoulder of Northeast 100th Street. Gregg checked the man and found him to be unconscious and without a pulse. Another passerby, James Ruddy, called 911. Kirkland fire Capt. Larry Peabody, upon arrival, observed Gregg performing CPR on the victim. Gregg continued performing CPR while the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) was prepared. Peabody said, “Mr. Gregg did an awesome job with chest compressions while I readied the AED.”

The Kirkland Reporter police blotter is not intended to be representative of all police calls originating in Kirkland, which average about 1,000 per week. Between June 14-20, the Kirkland Police Department reported 551 traffic violations (five DUIs), 22 traffic accidents, 11 school zone traffic violations, 24 alarm calls, 32 noise complaints, 13 calls of disturbance, 13 thefts, nine car prowls, four car thefts, 10 calls of civil disturbance, six reported burglaries, 12 domestic violence calls, four calls for harassment, two reports of illegal drugs, three assaults, four juvenile crimes, nine acts of fraud, one malicious mischief report, three suicides and three sex offenses.

was a student.

Domestic violence: 2:13 p.m., 11200 block of NE 141st Place. A 23-year-old man was arrested for fourth-degree assault and for interfering with reporting domestic violence. A 56-yearold woman with the same last name was reported to be his victim.

June 16 Domestic violence: 9 p.m., 11200 block of NE 128th St. A 50-year-old woman was taken into custody for biting her 48-year-old husband’s arm after he took her keys. Trespass: 10:40 p.m., 11600 block of 98th Ave. NE. A 20-year-old man was arrested for violating his no trespass order at Walgreens.

June 15 Noise violation: 11:10 p.m., 13800 block

of 90th Ave. NE. A 34-year-old woman was cited for a noise violation after a 62-year-old man reported a barking dog complaint. The owner was warned about her dogs in the past.

June 14 Harassment: 5:20 p.m., 9700 block of NE Juanita Drive. A 26-year-old man was cited for harassment after an investigation revealed he threatened a 31-year-old man. The men and the suspect’s girlfriend had an argument over the girlfriend’s dog being off-leash in a park. Domestic violence: 9:26 p.m., 11300 block of NE 144th Place. A 36-year-old woman was arrested and booked into jail after she and her 42-year-old husband were in a physical altercation. Domestic violence: 11 p.m., 9800 block of NE 125th Lane. A 16-year-old boy was arrested for fourth-degree assault after he pushed his 43-year-old mother into the wall two times.

June 20 Minor in consumption: 1:32 a.m., 12800 block of 100th Ave. NE. An 18-year-old man was arrested for blowing a 0.161 after dumping garbage all over the roadway.

June 19 Order violation: 4:30 p.m., 11900 block of NE 80th St. When a 21-yearold man and a 20-year-old woman attempted to check into Camp Unity, they were taken into custody. The man had violated a Redmond no-contact order for the woman he was with. Upon his arrest, the woman fought with officers and was subsequently arrested for obstruction.



The remaining dispatched units arrived in short order and they relieved Gregg of performing CPR. “The bottom line is that this resuscitation may not have been successful without Mr. Gregg starting CPR as soon as he did,” said Peabody. He asked Gregg if he had performed CPR before and Gregg said no, but he had taken a CPR course.

CONTRIBUTED and will be available after the parade and for two hours before the fireworks show. Along with McCormick, Kirkland resident and Eastside Audubon member Nancy Roberts met with Penny Sweet of Celebrate Kirkland! last week to request the move of the fireworks barge. U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service guidelines require

fireworks displays to be located at least a half-mile from an active bald eagle nest and recommend a distance of one mile.
