Driving through the cul-de-sacs of Spiritwood, Stephanie Walter points out the idiosyncrasies of neighborhood life – the dog owners, families with young children and new arrivals. “If I'm not mistaken, they've lived here since the time the neighborhood was developed,” says Walter, pointing to one stately house. “She was a second grade teacher and of course, it's just beautiful at Christmas time when the lights go up.” Around the corner, in a meticulously well-kept front yard, a woman gardens. “I love this house,” says Walter, pausing again. “This nice lady slowly painted her own house in little bits and pieces, and comes out and works fastidiously on her yard.” But Spiritwood, a neighborhood built in the 1950s, and called by many a “sleepy community,” has undergone changes in recent months. In May, residents of the low-density, single-family neighborhood began noticing the redevelopment of several properties. A three-bedroom SEE HOUSING, 21

Standoff ends peacefully after man threatened over chess match A police standoff that began in the early morning hours on July 18 ended peacefully after eight hours. The suspect was taken into custody and no one was injured. At approximately 1:56 a.m., Bellevue Police were dispatched after a man phoned 9-1-1 stating his neighbor just threatened him by pointing a gun to his head. The incident occurred in an apartment in the 1800 block of 108th Avenue Southeast. The 30-year-old Bellevue resident said he went over to his neighbor’s apartment to play PASSPORT PHOTOS •

Bellevue police responded and evacuated nearby apartment units. Information provided by the reporting party confirmed the subject still had a firearm in his apartment and possibly other weapons. He also stated there was no one else in the apartment. The subject, known to Bellevue Police, remained in his apartment refusing to coop-

erate. Patrol officers held a perimeter around the home while the SWAT team attempted to make contact with the barricaded subject. After several hours, negotiators were able to convince the man to let SWAT members enter the apartment where they took him into custody. Traffic along Bellevue Way, 112th Avenue Southeast and 108th Avenue Southeastwas closed to traffic during the incident and rerouted. The streets were re-opened to traffic at approximately 10:30 a.m.

Bellevue police arrest more burglars Suspects said to be involved in multiple breakins and prowls in Surrey Downs, Enatai The Bellevue Police Department has arrested two more burglary suspects who appear to be responsible for several burglaries in Bellevue and possibly the surrounding area. One of the burglars arrested was seen on a webcam video sent out by the media last week that showed a suspect walking around inside a home. The homeowner was alerted by her smartphone app. She phoned her neighbor who called 9-1-1. Bellevue Police arrived but were unable to locate the suspect. However, the homeowner’s dropped stolen items were recovered. A citizen who recognized the suspect in the webcam video phoned the police. The suspect eventually turned himself in. Detectives arrested the suspect on Monday, July 22. The 33-year-old Bellevue transient has been cooperative with the investigation and admitted to multiple prowls and burglaries in the Surrey Downs area of Bellevue. He is assisting detectives by providing information on previous crimes committed. He admitted to at least five burglaries of unlocked garages and admitted to 25-30 prowls of unlocked cars in the last year.

On Tuesday night, July 23, Bellevue Police working with county sheriff 's detectives, arrested another suspect responsible for several burglaries in the Enatai area of Bellevue. The investigation led detectives to the 27-year-old Tacoma transient who was located and arrested at a hotel in Tacoma. He has been cooperative and admitted to burglarizing homes in Bellevue over the past six months. The investigation of at least five burglaries is ongoing and detectives may develop more information on several other crimes. Very little property has been recovered because the suspects immediately sold or traded it following the burglary. The suspect is in the King County Jail where he was booked for residential burglary. In an unrelated case, a third suspect was identified and was the 434th capture from viewer tips on Washington’s Most Wanted. Police ultimately located and arrested him in Woodinville for the Bellevue burglary. He was booked in the King County Jail. The Bellevue Police Department expressed thanks to its media partners, Washington’s Most Wanted, Crime Stoppers and the public for their assistance in the cases. The videos shown to the public were extremely helpful in identifying and ultimately, the arrests of the suspects in these cases, police officials said.

New Fu Dogs at Bellevue City Hall to attract global guests In honor of Bellevue's long-running sister city relationship with Hualien, Taiwan, two recently installed Fu Dog statues will be dedicated during a festive ceremony July 29 at City Hall. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the City Hall Plaza, 450 110th Ave. N.E. It will feature an "awakening" ceremony for the Fu Dogs, with lion dancing, a martial arts demonstration, musical performances, folk dancing and Taiko drumming. The event is free. A delegation of government and business leaders from Taiwan will be on hand to mark the occasion and celebrate the 30-year sister city relationship between Hualien and Bellevue. The marble Fu Dogs were a gift from Hualien in 2010. Installation was completed two weeks ago. "The dedication ceremony is a chance for the community to celebrate our special sister city relationship with Hualien," said Mayor Conrad Lee, who was born in China. "More than 30 percent of Bellevue residents were born outside the United States, and the largest nationality are Chinese. These beautiful statues symbolize our city's diversity and the importance of our

international friendships." The Fu Dogs, also known as Guardian Lions, replace a single "bachelor" dog that stood guard near the entrance to City Hall since 2006; before that it was located at Bellevue's old city hall at Main Street and 116th Avenue Southeast, starting in 1987. Fu Dogs traditionally come in pairs and are placed near building entrances for the symbolic protective power they are believed to possess, and for their decorative qualities. Bellevue's new Fu Dogs each weigh about 3,600 pounds and are made of marble quarried from the Chungyang Mountains, west of Hualien. The dedication event is cosponsored by the city of Bellevue and the Bellevue Sister Cities Association. Hualien is one of four Bellevue sister cities. The others are Kladno, Czech Republic; Liepaja, Latvia; and Yao, Japan. The sister city organization promotes cooperation, cultural understanding, humanitarian aid and economic development for Bellevue's sister cities. Parking is limited at City Hall. However, there are numerous private parking lots nearby and the Bellevue Transit Center is across the street.

adjacent parking lot. Fees to use the improved launch remain the same as before. Boaters paying by the day are required to purchase a $7 launch permit and also display the Discover Pass ($10 for one day or $30 annual). Those who purchase an annual permit for $80 may launch year-round at state park watercraft launches and do not need a Discover Pass to visit state parks. The newly organized Friends of Lake Sammamish has members in the Bellevue, Issaquah and Sammamish communities.

Eastside Audubon endorses parks levy Eastside Audubon is encouraging voters to approve a ballot measure in the primary election to maintaining parks and open space in King County. Eastside Audubon’s board voted unanimously to endorse Proposition No. 1, a six-year levy, which will replace expiring levies that account for 70 percent of the annual funding that supports 200 county

parks and 175 regional trails. Today, a homeowner pays 13.4 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation. The new levy would be 18.77 cents per $1,000. Eastside Audubon guides a birding walk at Marymoor Park at least once a month and leads walks monthly at other county and municipal parks that will benefit from Proposition 1 revenue.

Vote ‘yes’ to keep our county parks open

B

ellevue voters only have one issue on the primary ballot, but it's an important one: a six-year tax levy to maintain country parks, trails and open space. The measure – Proposition No. 1 – deserves a strong "yes" vote. The six-year levy on the ballot provides 70 percent of the money the county needs to maintain its 200 parks, 175 miles of trails and thousands of acres of open space. It includes the magnificent Marymoor Park in Bellevue's backyard, Cougar Mountain Park near Issaquah and hundreds more regional and smaller parks throughout King County. There's also money in the levy to buy more open space and develop more trails. About 20 percent of the money goes to help support the Woodland Park Zoo. The county raises the rest of the money through such revenue sources such as Cirque du Soleil at Marymoor and ballfield rentals. Too often we take our parks for granted: they're always there and available. But that won't be the case if Proposition No. 1 fails. In 2002, King County had to cut parks and recreation from its budget because of a financial crisis.There hasn't been any general fund money for parks for the past 10 years. In 2004, voters approved a one-year parks levy and did so again in 2007. That levy is up for renewal again. Today, a homeowner pays 13.4 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation. Translated, it means the owner of a home assessed at $500,000 pays about $67 a year to maintain the county's parks. The new levy – 18.77 cents per $1,000 – would cost the owner of that $500,000 home about $94. That's $27 a year more, or just a bit over $2 a month. For a couple of bucks more a month, we'll all be able to continue enjoying the county's wide array of parks and recreational benefits. Vote "yes" on King County Proposition No. 1. – Craig Groshart, Bellevue Reporter

Reporter’s Notebook

Florida verdict should make us pause

A

s the news of the shooting of a Sanford, Fla. teenager in 2012 made its way across the country, the refrain became a common one. I am Trayvon Martin. The words were the simplest way for Americans to express their feelings toward the case, which concluded last weekend with the acquittal of George Zimmerman on the charges of manslaughter and second degree murder. But as the verdict was announced and the backlash began on social media and in cities across the country, it was difficult to find any solace for those who believe Martin’s death could and should have been avoided, and that Zimmerman should be the one held responsible. But rather than drawing quick, misinformed conclusions, perhaps the best way Josh Suman to find some level of understanding and peace is to flip that oft-recited declaration on its ear. I am George Zimmerman. When sports stars, entertainers and everyday Americans tossed on hooded sweatshirts and posed with signage that juxtaposed their likeness with Martin’s, they did so in an

effort to portray the fact any one of us, regardless of race, could be a target. But didn’t we already know that? Racism, while pushed to the margins in our own Pacific Northwest bubble for the most part, still boils over, and the same “stand your ground” philosophy that played into the verdict in Florida is built into our own laws, as it is in some three dozen states across the country. Anyone left with wonderment at the notion someone would take such drastic action based initially on racial profiling is either naive or in denial. The lesson to take from this senseless tragedy isn’t that we are all at the will of gun-toting block watch leaders, although that has once again proven itself to be true. It is that when we find ourselves in a position to judge, we must do so without qualification based on race, skin color, or other prejudices. That was what George Zimmerman failed to do, and what every American should feel an obligation to learn from. The more of us willing to realize we are all in the same position as Zimmerman is the fastest way to stop more deaths like Martin’s. Josh Suman: 425-453-5045 jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

In Don’s long service to his community, he has represented his constituents, not special interests. Greater downtown neighborhoods need his watchful vigilance at the council table as Sound Transit seeks permits to build East Link and the downtown continues to grow in our midst. I ask folks to vote for Don Davidson, the “proven father of common sense,” NOT “new blood” for the sake of change.

Lee Maxwell, Bellevue

Slatter best for city council Our community deserves the best candidate for leading and implementing future business, government and community visions for Bellevue. We appreciate Don Davidson’s service, but as Mayor Conrad Lee said regarding City Manager Steve Sarkozy’s resignation, “Bellevue has been changing, and needs different leadership.” Vandana Slatter represents the best candidate for Bellevue City Council Position No. 6. She understands the teamwork, decision-making, and common-sense approach based on her career and life experiences to achieve positive results for transportation and traffic, business and community projects. Slatter truly puts forth a nonpartisan approach for solutions. She not only considers the local community, but also

What do lawmakers do? In response to column, “What do teachers do?” - that is the wrong question. The more appropriate question should be what do “lawmakers” do to justify their existence? They build stadiums the people vote against, they raise car tab prices when the people vote against it, and they have all manor of welfare for special interests that are against the people wishes. So perhaps the “lawmakers” need to go back to school instead of showing that they are clueless.

Thirty states have now passed so call “Stand Your Ground” laws, which in practice is a license for anyone carrying a gun to kill any one he/she perceives to be a threat even if the person carrying the gun created the confrontation. Our so-called leaders in the public and private sectors have shown over time they are incapable of governing the country in a civilized manner, which has led to the country living in fear and being most uncivilized. For the above reasons, I think it is time for the U.N.

Overlake Hospital debuts new heart and vascular center BY KEEGAN PROSSER BELLEVUE REPORTER

The opening of Overlake Medical Center’s state-of-theart David and Shelley Hovind Heart & Vascular Center brings the hospital’s cardiac and vascular services together in one location and features the most advanced cardiovascular equipment and technology available on the Eastside. The new 19,200-square-foot facility, which has been in the works for several years, was opened in a July 17 ceremony at the hospital. “For more than two decades we have offered the most comprehensive array of cardiac services on the Eastside and continue to be the only hospital that offers open heart surgery on the Eastside,” said Dr. Joseph Doucette, director of invasive cardiology at Overlake. “The opening of our new heart and vascular center is an important step forward and will help keep Overlake at the forefront of advanced cardiac care.” The new facility, which will serve as home base for approximately 20 cardiologists, will allow more real-time collaboration between physicians, facilitate consultation between physicians, patients and their families, and will improve the Eastside community’s access to cardiac care. “The demand for advanced cardiovascular care on the Eastside is growing rapidly,” said Dr. Derek Rodrigues, an Overlake cardiologist. In the last three years the number of open-heart surgeries

performed by Overlake physicians has increased by nearly 35 percent and the number of EP/AF ablation procedures conducted has increased by 50 percent. This year Overlake expects to perform 400 openheart surgeries and 600 EP/AF ablation procedures. Rodrigues said while the old spaces were adequate, they represented a prior state of the art and technology. The new facility is expected to take Overlake’s cardiac and vascular work to the next level. “It’s a quantum leap in design and functionality,” Rodrigues said. He added it will be a more comfortable experience for staff and patients alike. The new facility includes five procedure rooms, a conference room and several cardiac catheterization laboratories. Doucette said the conference room is same size and set-up as the catheterization labs, which will allow for the center to grow in the future. Doucette said a handful of physicians worked closely with hospital leadership, architects and technical people to ensure the new heart and vascular center would advance the hospital’s level of patient care. They also worked to bring all testing and therapeutic services together in the center. The equipment in the new center also will offer patients services not many hospitals in the area have – specifically in regard to what the heart rhythm team can do. Already

Overlake expects to perform 400 open-heart surgeries this year in the center’s new procedure rooms. KEEGAN PROSSER, Bellevue Reporter noted for its minimally invasive heart procedures, the hospital began incorporating a new, biodegradable stint for heart patients this month. The new center is named the David and Shelley Hovind Heart & Vascular Center in recognition of the couple’s $1 million leadership gift. The Overlake Medical Center Foundation & Auxiliaries raised an additional $1.1 million for

the new facility at the 2013 Bandage Ball, the foundation’s annual fundraising gala and auction. “We’re all very excited about this,” Doucette said. “So many people labored away to make [the center] come together.” The center will be fully operational by Aug. 5.

Overlake’s Hendrickson announces plans to retire in 2014 BY KEEGAN PROSSER BELLEVUE REPORTER

After 12 years, Craig Hendrickson has announced his plans to retire as President & Chief Executive Officer at Overlake Medical Center in June 2014. Hendrickson came to Overlake in 2001 from Swedish Medical Center (Providence Campus), where he was the Cheif Operating Officer (COO). Hendrickson's other executive experience includes chief executive at Providence Seattle Medical Center; senior regional vice president and COO at Catholic Healthcare West in California; President and CEO of South Sound

Integrated Delivery Network for the Franciscan Health System; and CEO of St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way. Hendrickson has a master’s degree in healthcare administraCraig Hendrickson tion from the University of California, Irvine and currently serves on the board of the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce. During his time at Overlake, Hendrickson said he worked to promote health care as a team sport and to empower the staff

to work together. He added that he made changing the culture of the hospital a top priority. "That didn't exist as much when I started," he said. "And I'm very proud of that." During his tenure, Hendrickson oversaw projects including the completion of Overlake's South Tower, as well as the development and completion of the newly opened Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the David and Shelley Hovind Heart & Vascular Center. He also helped raise the hospital's quality metrics, which have contributed to their status as one of the best

hospitals in the country. "Craig really led the effort to ensure that people were focused on patient care," said Cecily Hall, board chair at Overlake. "We're sad to see him go, but we appreciate the long transition time," Hall said. Considering the weight and responsibility that comes with Hendrickson's position, Hall said the board, along with Hendrickson, will take the appropriate time to find a talented individual to replace him.

around 800 pounds of fresh produce to Hopelink in 2011 before surpassing 1,600 pounds last year. This year, Starr hopes they can top one ton of fresh produce donated. Kris Betker, a public relations specialist with Hopelink, said fresh donations are always cause for celebration. "Fresh produce can be pricey to purchase," she said. "It's always a good thing when the community gets involved in that way." While shelf-stable and canned items are the staple of food banks like Hopelink, Betker said any opportunity to introduce people to new fresh items or provide a favorite is a good one and with budget cuts leaving perishable items dwindling, donations from P-Patches and local gardeners is one of the ways to close the gap. For Starr and the rest of the gardeners, including Linda Anchondo, it is another way to connect with the community the church has called home for more than 50 years. "That's really what it is all about," Anchondo said. "You don't want to give it to people who don't want it."

BELLEVUE REPORTER

Five decades ago, when Holy Cross Lutheran Church built its modest sanctuary in Bellevue, the landscape surrounding the Factoria church was vastly different from today. Farmland stretched openly where roads and developments now crisscross a grid of homes and businesses, leaving little evidence of Bellevue's agricultural past. But thanks to three years of hard work from members of the church and surrounding community, a vestige of those days has returned in the form of a P-Patch and apple orchard, where community members can lease plots to grow organic produce and flowers. "We knew we had this asset in the orchard and garden," church patron Jan Starr said. "We decided to put a P-Patch in." The garden, divided into 200-squarefoot subplots, is home to a stunning array of fruits, vegetables and flowers, many of which are uncommon in the Pacific Northwest. Starr said the neighborhood's rich ethnic diversity has contributed to the variety in the garden, which includes Asian herbs, Kiwis and melons. But despite the all-encompassing sensory experience provided within the garden, it is what takes place after the weekly harvest that sets it apart. Starr said it didn't take long for gardeners to realize their bounty often outweighed their appetites and while gifting fresh produce to neighbors and friends is often met with excitement, it can also be unreliable and intrusive. So for the past three years, members of the P-Patch at Holy Cross have made weekly donations to Hopelink food bank. "It really feels good," Starr said. "It's been really fun." The roughly 20 gardeners donated

y brother and I bet on everything. Even though he lives 300 miles away, one of us will call or text a wager on topics ranging from the Stanley Cup winner, the duration of celebrity romances or (as we get older) our cholesterol counts. The things we bet on have to be measurable in some way, such as press coverage or lab results, so that nobody can cheat. It’s not that we don’t trust each other, but we still like to know that our sources are Darcy Brixey solid so when we collect on those bets (often dinner or dessert) there is no room for argument. We are siblings, after all. KCLS has a new iPhone app to record reading time called READometer. This can be used to encourage reading or spark a little competition between friends, classrooms or siblings. In the beginning, you can set a reading goal for a number of minutes and start the

timer. There is an option to pause and resume if real life interrupts your reading time.At the end of the goal you can add minutes to log more time. There are several tabs in the app for more information. One is for statistics where you can look at your reading minutes in a form by week or month. The app will let you record reading for up to 50 users so you can see who is reading the most. If you are in need of reading material, there are other tabs that will use GPS to locate KCLS branch libraries or the Take Time to Read quick shelves which are located in places such as area licensing departments, hospital and urgent care waiting rooms, tire shops and community centers. The app collects minutes from all users to get a collective idea on how much KCLS patrons are reading. It records no personal information such as the reader name you used or what you are reading since it is in no way attached to your library card. The free app is available through iTunes. More information can be found at www.kcls. org/taketimetoread. Because you can log so many readers into one app, you can record your family members, your neighbors and even your book group members. At this point I’m willing to bet my brother that my library system can read more than his library system. He still owes me a pizza from that last bet and I’m ready to collect.

On the road in central Washington

I

n June my husband and I set out to explore central Washington. It was the first road trip we’d taken in years. I suppose three days qualifies for one of the shortest road trips on record, but some places don’t require a long stay, especially if the accommodations are…well…challenging. We drove to central Washington because that’s where my novel is set and I wanted to absorb local color. We’ve driven I-90 to Spokane many times, but beyond that never investigated any other parts of the region. I also wanted to understand a bit about the geology of the area.   The trip has already saved me from Ann Oxrieder inserting multiple embarrassing factual errors into my book, but equally important, it gave me a picture of a part of our state I’d never seen, one that was unusual in its origins and quite beautiful.  If the cliffs had been red I’d have thought I was touring northern Arizona. We took two exhilarating hikes, snapped several hundred photos of the basalt rock formations and drove through the main streets of every burg to get the flavor of small town and rural life. Sadly, boarded up buildings, thrift stores and social

service agencies occupied many storefronts in the towns we visited. Despite the warning in the roadside geology book we carried with us, that several mineral water lakes in the dry part of the state were “extremely unpleasant bodies of water,” we took the plunge and soaked in the waters of one. When it comes out of a bathtub spigot it seems so innocent. The trip exceeded my expectations in every sphere but the lodgings. Our room would have felt more spacious if we hadn’t shared it with a diorama of two stuffed pheasants under glass, a large-steer horn, several hanging pots of plastic ivy, a super-shiny slab table, two fishing creels, a large bird’s nest, a box kite emblazoned with a Boeing logo, an eagle made out of an indeterminate substance, and a wagon wheel suspended from the ceiling. And this is only a partial list of the decorative features. Our second night there, after spending an entire day out of doors under an expansive sky, my husband shouted, “I’m going stir crazy.” It may have been the room. Ann Oxrieder has lived in Bellevue for 35 years. She retired after 25 years as an administrator in the Bellevue School District and now blogs about retirement at http://stillalife.wordpress. com/.

A look at Bellevue’s past

Collection

Where are the Baunsgard signs? Earl “Bud” Baunsgard had a unique job in the Bellevue Parks Department of the 1960s and ’70s – he was responsible for the signage. Baunsgard had a small shop at the Bellefields Nature Park (now Mercer Slough Park), where he produced dozens of wooden signs. Park rules (“Do Not Swim Past Line”) were fairly simple stenciled affairs. Entry and exit signs were a little more elaborate; he carved those with a router and painted over the letters in yellow or white. But what happened to his creations, and where are they now? The signs and carvings at Bellefields Nature Park tended to attract vandals. Some were defaced and damaged, others disappeared entirely. However, some were still in place in the early 1980s. If any readers know what became of the Baunsgard signs, we would love to know. Heritage Corner is a feature in the Bellevue Reporter.

Lakeside senior legion set for state tournament after pair of wins

Coaching for the community

Little League coach notches 500th win after a decade of service to Bellevue East BY JOSH SUMAN BELLEVUE REPORTER

Terry Taylor knows some people wonder why he does it at all. Without children of his own, or a pedigree in the game dating back to professional experience, coaching Little League for more than a decade may seem an odd pursuit. But for Taylor, it has become part of his identity. “Seeing a kid smile when he gets his first hit,” he said. “That is right up there with anything you can think of.” The longtime Bellevue East coach made another indelible memory recently when he won his 500th game, a milestone for any coach and another accolade to go with his two city tournament titles at the 2010 10-year-old state championship, the only for any of the three Bellevue leagues. Bellevue East President Ryan Stier said it would be difficult to find someone more deserving. “It’s one of those things that every league needs,” Stier said. “Our league would not be as successful as it is without him.” Taylor got his start on the diamond in 2003, when his nephew was only six-years-old and his brother-in-law needed some help with his coach pitch team. In the years since, he has become a staple around Bellevue East baseball, serving several board positions (he is currently league Vice President), coaching and overseeing the renovation of Bellevue East’s home

park in Federal Field. In 2006, with the outfield overgrown by blackberries from neighboring homes and the infield sunk-in to the point of perpetual flooding, the league made the choice to go ahead with major improvements that included new dugouts closer to home plate (Taylor said the old ones required a 200 foot jaunt for an atbat), a resurfaced diamond and a new outfield fence. While the wins and tournament titles are certainly some of Taylor’s fondest memories, nothing has been as involved as his work on Federal, which also included refurbishing a rat-infested, condemned facility that is now used for storage. “I’m the Forrest Gump of the league,” he said in reference to the Tom Hanks’ character who takes to manicuring his hometown field in his twilight years. “It’s relaxing, I love cutting the grass.” But Taylor is far more than the league landscaper. Stier said while Taylor is rightly known for his work on Federal Field, it is impossible to measure his contri-

bution to the league and community. “He loves kids and working with and developing players,” Stier said. “He puts himself second and the kids and league first.” Stier said he played in Bellevue East during his own youth and remembers the original Federal Field, which doesn’t come close to the gem his son plays on today. “His vision was to make it one of the most beautiful fields in the Bellevue area,” Stier said of Taylor. “He put his blood, sweat and tears into that field to make it what it is today.” Of all his triumphs on the field he helped create, Taylor said none can compare to the city tournament title he won at the Coast level this season, the second of his career. While the team was far from the most talented group he has worked with, Taylor said the chance to capture the city’s ultimate Little League prize on a field with such a history was a unique moment. “That was cool because it was on our home field,” Taylor said. “I’ve had three dogs here with me every day. This is my second home.” As for when he plans to call it quits, Taylor offered a common refrain from longtime coaches. “I told everyone next year was my last,” he said. “But there is a group of 10-year-olds who are just great to work with. So two more years.” Josh Suman: 425-453-5045 jsuman@bellevuereporter.com

Lakeside Baseball Club will have a chance to defend its state title from 2012 after winning a pair of games in the sub-regional at Issaquah High School last week. The team, led by coach Rob Reese, beat the Spokane Cannons 9-3 before taking care of Yakima Pepsi Pak 8-6 the following day. The win sends Lakeside back to the state tournament, where they won their first title since 2009 last year, and an opening game against the Yakima Beatles on Saturday at Shadle Park in Spokane. The eight-team, double-elimination tournament concludes July 31 with the championship game and will send one team to the Senior Legion Regional Tournament in Eugene, Ore. Lakeside won the regional title last year to make the American Legion World Series and finished third. This year’s team features only three players from Newport in Ryan Darrow, Jake Rosen and Todd Reese. Lakeside is 32-11 overall on the year and has won its last four games.

Magill leads locals at Seafair Tri Aa Magill, a 48-year-old from Bellevue, led a host of locals at the sprint tri at the BRI Triathlon at Seafair recently, finishing in 36th place overall and tops in the Master Males division in a time of one hour, four minutes and 30 seconds. Magill had a swim time of 12:18, a bike of 29:47 and a run of 19:50 to beat out the next closest Master finisher by just more than a minute. Michael Pritchard, also 48 and from Bellevue, was just behind Magill in 1:06:25. Laura Coombs was the top finisher for the women, as the 29-year-old ended the race in a time of 1:59:59 for a finish of 11th overall. Stephanie Major and Tina Hall also earned top-10 finishers in their division, with Major ending in 19th overall and Hall also in the top-100.

Eastside FC reaches title game in Florida national tournament The Eastside FC White 95 girls soccer team kept its summer rolling in Florida recently at the President’s Cup, which featured top teams from around the country. Eastside FC beat the Lady Lions 96 Red from Texas 1-0 in its first game of the tournament and followed that up with a 2-1 win over Fusion from New York. A 1-0 victory over Tri City Storm Black of North Dakota sent them to the title game and with more than double the points of any other team in the field, but a rematch with Fusion ended in a 3-0 loss and a runner-up finish at the tournament.

HOUSING

or eight cars are coming and going out of one house. That can be challenging.” David Pater, who lives across from 1613, says he's lived in Spiritwood since 1997. An environmental planner with the state, he understands the neighborhood's concerns present a difficult intersection of issues. “Our concern is this particular developer or agent is implementing a boarding house model in the neighborhood to maximize profit. He's turning properties into businesses,” says Pater. “We're not trying to target anybody, we just want a solution to preserve the quality of life in the neighborhood.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Changing neighborhoods

Neighbors believe there are five houses in Spiritwood being used as rentals or boarding houses, though they're keeping their eyes on several other properties also thought to be at risk. “If this takes off and becomes a new model,” says Nanette Fricke of Spiritwood, “we could be in trouble as a city.” City code defines Spiritwood as a singlefamily neighborhood and defines boarding houses as dwellings where boarders are housed for profit. Under the existing land use code, occupants of a single-family dwelling who meet the definition of family can rent out up to two rooms for profit, permitting they meet the right criteria. But that line has been blurred by the new developments. The squat yellow house at 1613, designed as a three bedroom, underwent renovation to become an eight-bedroom house. Neighbors complained, suspecting that the work was being conducted without permits. The city issued a stop work order, though neighbors say the house was occupied at different times by what they observed was a disparate group of people. Down the street at 1722, the house used to be a rental before it was torn down and sat as a vacant lot for several years during the bad economy. In July of last year the

Spiritridge residents are worried that this house, at 2017 146th Place SE, could turn into a mini-dorm. COURTESY PHOTO, Google Maps

empty plot was purchased for $270,000. Early designs indicate that it was designed to be a three-story duplex, which falls outside the parameters of Spiritwood's single-family zoning. Neighbors watched as the footprint of the new structure was laid. Though only the frame has gone up, already it dwarfs many of the adjacent houses. Neighbors worried that the property owners could attempt to change zoning in Spiritwood to include multi-family residences. In response, the city ordered property owners to resubmit permits meeting zoning standards, by removing features like a second kitchen. “Not only will it reduce the livability of the neighbors' homes [with] no light and no view of the sky,” says Walter, “but also the value of the property will raise the assessed values of the neighboring houses causing property taxes to rise.” Next door, 1718 is one of the residences neighbors know to be occupied. Several cars are parked in front and residents have noted the people coming and going aren't related. When brought to the city's attention, staff confirmed the garage had been converted to a living space without appropriate permits. The final two properties, 14424 and 2017, have had minor cosmetic work done, say neighbors, but no serious redevelopment. The house at 2017, neighbors also say, is being rented.

Mediation offered

“The ideal way is to get two parties to talk to one another and to resolve these issues,” says Emily Christensen, chief communications officer for the city of Bellevue, “especially if the current situation doesn’t violate any land use code, which at this point we haven’t determined any violation.” Christensen explained the city had met with a representative of the property owners and proposed mediation between neighbors and the owners. Mediation allows the city to facilitate a dialogue between parties and would likely take place in August. Christensen also clarifies while some of the properties were missing appropriate permits early on, there are not outstanding offenses based on the information provided to the city. Robertson says the city will need to tackle this in a multi-pronged fashion, while keeping an eye on other neighborhoods potentially impacted. None of the property owners could be reached for comment. “I remember neighborhood folks coming to planning commissions,” recalls Robertson, “sharing that there were eight cars [on their street]. That really puts a lot of pressure on single-family neighborhoods where kids want to ride bikes on the street,

house was renovated to eight bedrooms without appropriate permits. Concerned neighbors began exchanging notes and soon realized that five properties in a several block radius were owned by a handful of property owners, several of them seemingly related: 1613 144th Ave. SE by Blue Sky Equities LLC; 1718 144th Ave. SE by HG Investment Group LLC; 1722 144th Ave. SE by AS Wealth Group LLC; 14424 SE 17th St. by C&S Real Estate LLC; and 2017 146th Place SE by US Wealth Management Group. Neighbors think the redevelopments are already operating as, or could become, boarding houses, a trend they worry could come to define their area. “It's a type of housing that seems to be pervasive or popping up around Bellevue,” says Walter. “It's something the city needs to wrestle with. [We've always had] mother-inlaw apartments and rented rooms to boarders...But we want our neighborhood to stay a neighborhood.” Residents, who have voiced their concerns at past City Council meetings and have met and exchanged emails several times with city staff and council, say that the reason for the expansions could be twofold. Spiritwood is one of Bellevue's few modestly priced neighborhoods and Bellevue College's expansion into a four-year institution will grow the student body without first meeting the housing demand. BC doesn't have plans to build dorms until years down the line. The changes are indicative of bigger trends in Bellevue: the paucity of affordable housing, the complications of city zoning and a still recovering real estate market. Bellevue is in the process of updating its comprehensive plan, last modified in 2004, and with it, its vision for Bellevue neighborhoods. “The pressure of growth is being felt citywide, but also in single-family neighborhoods” says Deputy Mayor Jennifer Robertson, who adds that in her years working with the planning commission, neighbors from Crossroads, Lake Hills and East Lake Hills complained of houses not meeting the character or proportions of the neighborhood. The issue is not a new one.

For Dental Implant Treatment, it’s a ClearChoice! ClearChoice team of specialists brings you a dental implant solution that fits your budget ... in just one day!* A LEADER IN DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENT Virtually every adult will lose a tooth, and as we get older, more Americans will suffer with missing and failing teeth. These days, however, there are dental implant solutions that either didn’t exist in the past or which were difficult to access. But now, ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers are leading the way in innovative dental implant treatments. Dental Implants are a permanent solution for dental problems. And now your treatment, from our team of specialists, can often be accomplished in just one day *… and without the need for additional bone graft surgeries. In fact, dental implants can last a lifetime and have become the treatment of choice for replacement of missing and failing teeth. With more than 10,000 dental implant procedures performed, ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers have become a leader in dental implant treatment delivery. TECHNOLOGY Every ClearChoice Dental Implant Center includes an on-site 3D CAT Scan. The 3D CAT Scan technology costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. This technology provides three-dimensional and crosssectional views that allow ClearChoice doctors to examine the quality and density of the bone that will anchor the dental implants; select the correct type and size of implants; determine the precise placement of implants, and avoid the nerves and sinuses. Since every smile is custom designed, each ClearChoice Center has a specialized Dental Implant in-house lab to custom make your smile.

They said they had specialists, a lab, and high tech equipment all at one location, but I had no idea that they could really do all of this in just one day!*

Before

After

Actual ClearChoice Patient TEAM OF SPECIALISTS

The technology alone cannot elevate ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers in their field. Our technology is paired with an expert professional team of doctor specialists enabling ClearChoice to empower so many patients around the country to change their lives. These qualified specialists include an oral surgeon who places implants, and a prosthodontist who designs your custom new smile. Each of the doctors has special expertise and can be trusted to deliver your high quality implant care. Dental Implants are a surgical procedure and the ClearChoice doctors have extensive experience in this area including administering anesthesia to provide comfort. Custom fabrication of the patient’s new smile and replacement teeth are accomplished by trained lab technicians in the on-site dental implant lab. Our local specialists are available for a FREE initial consultation or even second opinions. Why wait, call now! SATISFACTION Whether for a missing single tooth, multiple teeth or a whole mouthful of missing or failing teeth, ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers provide comprehensive implant treatment professionally and affordably in a fraction of the time it would take many other professionals.
