Tolling delay costs state $40 million An audit report says complexity of state tolling delayed collecting money to cross the SR 520 bridge.

The state has lost $40 million from tolling the SR 520 bridge because the all-electronic system was nine months behind schedule, according to an Aug. 2 state Auditor's report. In addition, project delays and issues creating the new system caused public confusion. On the plus side, the report noted the state has collected $67 million through March 2013. Specifically, the report said the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) faced challenges managing a complicated project that involved collaboration across the department, where roles and responsibilities were unclear, including who made

decisions, who was accountable, and how the vendor was to be managed. While the Washington State Department of Transportation has taken some steps to address the issues, the report notes the importance of resolving the challenges since the Legislature has authorized tolling on SR 99, I-405, and the I-5 Columbia River Crossing. The report also said that while WSDOT wanted a statewide system that would be easy for customers to use on multiple highways and bridges, the need to track tolls at each facility went beyond what was used by other state. A complication was the vendor didn't

understand the accounting needs until several months into the project. The state also was working under a tight deadline in order to avoid losing a Federal Highway Administration grant to pay for the new tolling system. Finally, because WSDOT’s primary goal was to have an operational system, it delayed assessing damages and did not apply all available financial penalties for poor performance by the vendor, the report says. However, once tolls started being collected on SR 520, WSDOT reached a financial settlement with the vendor.

Bellevue WWII veteran to get Bronze Star Air Force officer helped repel German attack as part of infantry operation Major Robert Swenson USAFR (Retired), of Bellevue, will be awarded the Bronze Star Medal on Aug. 10 for his actions in the last major airborne operation of World War II in Europe. The award will be presented in conjunction with the Trigger Time 8 convention in the city of Seatac. Swenson, who turned 90 on July 10, was involved in the last major airborne operation of World War II in the European Theatre of Operations. Dubbed "The Battle of Burp Gun Corner," the effort on March 24, 1945, stopped a German attack at the Rhine River crossing at Wesel, Germany. What made this company unique was that it was made up entirely of Army Air Force glider pilots who were all officers. During WWII, gliders were used extensively as the second wave of airborne operations. In addition to carrying infantry troops, or ‘Glider Riders’ as they were called, gliders had the advantage of being able to carry equipment such as jeeps, field artillery pieces and trailers that were too heavy to be dropped by parachute. After landing and unloading their cargo, the glider pilot’s primary duty was to get

back to their air base as soon as possible in order to be available to fly another mission, if necessary. During the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944 and January 1945, American forces had their heaviest casualties of any engagement in the war. The 17th Airborne Division saw its first combat action of the war and their two Glider Infantry Regiments, the 193rd and the 194th, took such

heavy losses that the 193rd was consolidated with the 194th. Even after consolidating the two units into one, it was still short one company of infantry. Since the 17th Airborne Division was slated to be the primary American airborne assault force for the upcoming invasion of Germany, code named Operation Varsity,

Bellevue police officer helps save woman A Bellevue police officer, along with two Redmond police officers and Redmond fire personnel administered CPR on Aug. 2 to save the life of a missing Bellevue woman. On Aug. 2, the family of the 74-year-old Bellevue woman reported their mother missing to the Bellevue Police Department. Six hours later, at approximately 7:30 p.m., the woman was found disoriented by a passerby in the 14000 block of Northeast 87th Street in Redmond. Two Redmond police officers responded and five minutes later the missing woman went into cardiac arrest. The officers began CPR while a third officer, from Bellevue, retrieved a defibrillator. The Redmond police officers performed CPR, paused to deliver a shock with the defibrillator, and then continued CPR as Redmond firefighters and paramedics arrived at the scene. All first responders worked together for more than 20 minutes delivering CPR, additional shocks, medications and airway control until the patient was transported to Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland with a sustainable heart rhythm. The patient was listed in critical condition.

will work to decommission an aging 30-year-old metal drainage pipe located 12 feet under the SR 167 roadway. The pipe, which is part of the stormwater runoff drainage system, will be replaced by a new, heavy-duty rubber pipe and located directly under the ramp shoulder. Drivers should expect delays on northbound SR 167 and State Route 181 approaching I-405 and along the detour route. Along northbound I-405 in Bellevue, crews will replace the 50-year-old concrete panels in the two right lanes between Southeast Eighth and Main streets. The distance is the length of a dozen football fields. Crews also will grind and seal the concrete pavement between State Route 520 and Northeast 70th Street. When the work is complete, drivers will experience a smoother ride with improved traction. Drivers should plan for long delays on Interstate 90 near the detour routes – northbound I-405 where all traffic will exit to Southeast Eighth Street and Interstate 5 through downtown Seattle. Surface streets in and around Bellevue will experience extra congestion as well.

Replacing a corroded drainage pipe and several hundred cracked concrete panels in just more than 50 hours isn’t easy, but that’s the mission contractor crews will undertake this weekend during shutdowns of both northbound Interstate 405 through Bellevue and the northbound State Route 167 ramp to northbound I-405 in Renton. Both sections of highway will close at 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9. Northbound I-405 will begin reopening at 4 a.m. Monday, Aug. 12. All ramps, including SR 167, will reopen by 5 a.m. that Monday. The Washington State Department of Transportation is advising drivers to add extra time for delays, particularly those heading to the Mariners game on Saturday to watch Ken Griffey Jr.’s induction into the Mariners’ Hall of Fame. “We need drivers to start planning now to keep traffic moving this weekend,” said WSDOT’s Northwest Regional Administrator Lorena Eng. “Carpooling, vanpooling and taking the bus are great options to beat the backups. If you have to drive this weekend, make sure your plan includes adding extra time to your commute.” At SR 167 and I-405, contractor crews

In an interview with KIRO Radio's Jason Rantz, U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, of Bellevue, joined a growing number of individuals, businesses and communities offering support for the boycott of Adam Smith the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia, if President Vladimir Putin does not renounce a broad new anti-gay propaganda law. "It's an ugly, ugly situation in Russia right now and we should put as much pressure on them as possible to change some of those policies," said Smith, a Democrat, in the broadcast interview. He said that the competing countries and athletes needed to be reassured that gay

athletes would not be discriminated against or harassed during the Olympic games. "If we have a situation where gay athletes from any country show up to Russia to compete in a competition and face arrest, that's completely unacceptable," said Smith. Boycotts of Russian liquor and food also have cropped up. Under the sweeping new law, "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" is forbidden, including holding hands, carrying symbols like a rainbow flag and speaking about homosexuality around minors. Citizens of countries that do permit gay marriage also will be forbidden from adopting Russian children. Media coverage from the country has reported arrests during gay pride rallies and the violent treatment of activists.

Parks vote shows pocketbook support


ounty voters did the right thing Tuesday by approving money for King County parks. Not only that, they did it with a resounding 69 percent “yes” vote. Those who follow politics call that a “landslide” victory. The vote has additional significance given the recession because the new six-year levy will cost voters a bit more on their property tax bill. Perhaps voters are now ready to open their pocketbooks. Lending credence to that is the column on page 7 by Jerry Cornfield, a columnist for the Sound Publishing paper in Everett, The Herald. Cornfield says the state transportation bill that died in the last hours of the recent legislative session might not be dead after all. Republicans are embarking on a statewide tour to see what transportation fixes people want and need – and how much they are willing to pay. A new bill could be passed later this year in a special session. The primary election also set the stage for what should be spirited campaigns for Bellevue City Council and the Bellevue School Board. In the race for Bellevue City Council Position No. 4, incumbent Kevin Wallace, with 46 percent of the vote, will face Steve Kasner, who got 42 percent. We expect a hard-fought campaign from candidates with different political views. In the Position No. 6 race, Lynne Robinson, chair of the city’s parks board, received 48 percent of the vote, a strong showing against incumbent Don Davidson and Vandana Slatter. Both had 26 percent, but Slatter had 88 more votes that Davidson in early returns. Regardless of who ends up second, he or she will have an uphill battle against Robinson. The school board race for Director District 5, is a close contest between My-Linh Thai, with 40 percent of the vote, and Ed Luera, who has 36 percent. The district represents voters south of I-90. We plan to play our part by engaging the candidates through interviews, profiles and a series of questions in the coming weeks. – Craig Groshart, Bellevue Reporter

Post-vacation blues


’ve got a bad case of the postvacation blues. You know what I’m talking about. That terrible, longing feeling you get when you return from vacation only to find a desk full of to-dos and a phone blinking with messages. The heavy weight you feel on your chest when you walk into the office and the sun is blaring Keegan Prosser outside. It’s terrible. And with the lovely

weather we’ve been having in the Northwest this summer, it’s the absolute worst. For me, the feeling came about Sunday night, when I returned from a long weekend at Lake Chelan to find an inbox full of messages – and I’ve been struggling to get out of the slump ever since. In the past, it wasn’t so bad. When I was high school, we had winter and spring and summer breaks. Even in college, I had the freedom to take off for days on end during the holiday break. Now, with a real job, vacation is


Blame poverty, not schools The Bellevue Reporter published a recent cartoon that blamed public schools for the supposed failure of education in America. But Bellevue has excellent public schools, and the countries that outperform us (Finland, Canada, Korea, Singapore, and Japan) have public schools, too. In fact, according to "What do international tests really show about U.S. student performance?" by the Economic Policy Institute, the reason American students score lower than average in comparison with students overseas is the high level of poverty in America. If you adjust for poverty, American students perform much better.

limited to those rare weekends – and those beloved vacation days. But that’s the problem – weekends just aren’t long enough. Right when you’re getting in your vacation groove, you have to come home and get back to real life. So what’s a girl to do when she’s feeling the blues? Watch the missed episodes of “True Blood”? Take her lunch outdoors? Read a new book? I’m open to suggestions, because I’m still trying to figure it out. Keegan Prosser: 425-453-4602

"If U.S. adolescents had a social class distribution that was similar to the distribution in countries to which the United States is frequently compared, average reading scores in the United States would be higher than average reading scores in the similar post-industrial countries we examined (France, Germany, and the United Kingdom), and average math scores in the United States would be about the same as average math scores in similar post-industrial countries." Conservatives love to find fault with public schools and teachers, but don't believe that propaganda. They're really just looking for an excuse to dismantle the last century of progress so they can increase the concentration of wealth even further.

The Petri Dish


Instability of the stock market It looks like a sunny day, but there are hints of economic thunder and lightning rumbling beyond the hill. The stock market keeps rising and people are happy. They are making money – or are they? The Fed is propping up the economy by printing money, which is not really "printing money," but retiring bonds and issuing reserves. There is no gold or commodities to back up these bonds. Real stock value is based on Gross Domestic Production (GDP) and is driven by population and personal income growth, which is the driver of corporate earnings. Manufacturing has dropped in the United States. And in true Keynesian fashion, 45 percent of the population is employed by the government. Since 1980, the U.S. population has grown by 25 percent and personal income has barely risen 10 percent, but the stock market has risen by 1,200 percent. Nowhere can I find the value of today’s dollar. Is it 35, 55 or 67 cents? Nobody can tell me. I do not want to know its value compared to other currencies. The storm is closing in on us.

Transportation plan may not be dead


emocrats in the state House of Representatives triggered quite a political storm this year with their plan to raise billions of dollars for transportation by, among other means, hiking the gas tax by a dime a gallon. When the clouds of conflict subsided after a regular session and two extra ones, those Democrats looked weary and had nothing to show for the effort. Now, the climate may actually be improving. Diminishing verbal showers are forecast and there’s a slim chance an agreement Jerry Cornfield could arrive in a special session this fall or in the 2014 session. What’s changed the atmosphere is that members of the Senate Majority Coalition Caucus, who withstood relentless pressure through 153 days by Democratic lawmakers, Gov. Jay Inslee and pro-transportation package forces, intend to craft their own transportation funding proposal. And soon. Members of the Republican-dominated caucus are embarking on a statewide tour to find out what the state’s citizenry thinks is needed in transportation and is willing to do and pay to get it done. “We want to find out by region where people are at,” said Sen. Curtis King, R-Yakima, a co-chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee on Tuesday. “We want to get a feel from the public if this is the time to do it.” If what they hear can be translated quickly

into a plan, negotiations with Democrats could commence this fall. Sen. Rodney Tom, D-Medina, one of two Democrats in the coalition caucus, has said if an agreement is within reach when lawmakers are in Olympia for committee meetings Nov. 21, it could get acted on then in a quick special session. “It’s possible. Personally, I think that is a ‘Hail Mary’ comment,” King said. “There are a lot of things that have to come together before that comes together.” One of those ‘things’ is certain to be reform of some state transportation policies. House and Senate Republicans are convinced Washington overdesigns, over regulates and overpays for just about everything it builds and paves. Democrats aren’t convinced it’s quite as bad as their GOP friends make it sound, but many of them see room for reform. On Tuesday, a bipartisan panel of lawmak-

ers began work on a study of those factors which drive up the cost of projects and what if anything can be done about them. Rep. Judy Clibborn, D-Mercer Island, leader of the House Transportation Committee and architect of her party’s failed transportation plan, said the analysis will “inform us about the things we think we know” and maybe dispel a few myths along the way. Results aren’t due until December. But enough should be known about reforms before then for King — who is on the panel — to write into the GOP proposal. “I think most people realize we do need additional revenues. We will have to have a list of reforms,” King said. He and Clibborn met for an hour Tuesday after which she sounded confident the GOP will put forth a proposal before the year is out. “My gut tells me they will,” she said. “They talk about it in a positive way. They are saying they want to do something. They realize it’s important to the state.” King made clear his caucus isn’t trying to claim ownership of the issue. “We just want to show we’re not the obstacles,” he said.

Help Support the Great Work of these Hospitals Two of the best children’s hospitals in the country are located right here in the Northwest – Seattle Children’s Hospital and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. Both of these facilities consistently rank among the best pediatric medical institutions in the United States. Both also support and benefit from state-of-the-art research organizations that are leading the way in pioneering new treatments and finding cures for many vexing childhood ailments. These two hospitals are making a huge difference in the lives of thousands of children from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska every year. Seattle Children’s Hospital and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital are our Charities of the Month for August. Seattle Children’s goal for every patient and their family can be summed up in three words: hope, care, cure. Offer every patient hope and care, and do everything possible to affect a cure. Whatever medical problem a child arrives with, there will probably be an expert doctor to treat it. Seattle Children’s can call on the expertise of physicians in nearly 60 pediatric subspecialties who can provide inpatient, outpatient, diagnostic, surgical, rehabilitative, behavioral, emergency and outreach services. Patients also benefit from the wide-ranging research that is part of Seattle Children’s. As noted on Seattle Children’s website, “Seattle Children’s Research Institute has nine major centers, and is internationally recognized for its work in cancer, genetics, immunology, pathology, infectious disease, injury prevention and bioethics. It is among the top five pediatric medical research centers in terms of National Institutes of Health grant funding. In its quest to cure childhood disease, the research institute brings discoveries to

the bedside in partnership with Seattle Children’s Hospital and Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation.” The Foundation helps assure that every child from the geographic region that Children’s serves can count on being cared for, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. Like Seattle Children’s, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital combines patient care with cutting edge research. Doernbecher is part of Oregon Health & Science University. This nationally ranked research institution has more than 4000 research studies underway and is involved more than 80 active pediatric clinical trials and databases. Doernbecher offers a broad range of pediatric care and treatment including: •

Pediatric bone marrow/stem cell transplants

Pediatric epilepsy surgery

Phase I clinical trials for new pediatric cancer therapies

Comprehensive care for infants, children and adolescents with brain tumors

Pediatric hemophilia services

Pediatric renal transplant

Treatment for inborn errors of metabolism

Most advanced non-invasive treatments for heart defects

Primary election sets up big races for Bellevue BY CELINA KAREIVA BELLEVUE REPORTER

Early election results from this week's primary indicate that Bellevue City Council could face a shakeup, come November. Incumbent Kevin Wallace, who is seeking his second term, will face challenger Steve Kasner of the East Bellevue Community Council. As of 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Wallace held 46 percent of the vote and Kasner 42 percent for the Position No. 4 seat. They easily beat out Bill Hirt and Jeffrey Talada, neither of whom raised funds during their campaign. For Position No. 6, Lynne Robinson is leading with 48 percent of the vote, a comfortable lead over her two challengers, long-time councilmember Don Davidson and Vandana Slatter. It's still unclear who Robinson will face in the general election. Davidson, who suffered a personal setback after missing months of council meetings because of poor health, had about 26 percent of the vote Wednesday afternoon, as did Slatter. However, Slatter had an 88-vote lead. Slatter early on distinguished herself by saying

that she would represent the growing diversity of the city. Later she garnered attention for her $121,000 campaign, compared to the $30,500 of Davidson and Robinson's near $53,000. For the Position No. 2 seat, Mayor Conrad Lee will challenge Lyndon Heywood. There were no other challengers so the two did not appear on primary ballots.

Bellevue School District My-Linh Thai leads the race for Bellevue School Board Director District No. 5 with 40 percent of the vortex. Trailing just behind with 36 percent of the vote is Ed Luera and Erik Fretheim with 24 percent. Chris Marks is uncontested for District Director No,. 3. In the District Director No. 4 seat, Krischanna Roberson will face Tracy

Parks Levy Voters approved a six-year parks levy, giving the measure 69 percent of the vote. The money will provide 70 percent of the money the county needs to maintain its 200 parks, 175 miles of trails and thousands of acres of open space. 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.

County Executive Incumbent Dow Constantine easily outpolled his opponents, gathering 76 percent of the vote. He will face Alan Lobdell in the November election. Lobdell got 12 percent of the vote.

Incumbent Reagan Dunn got 56 percent of the votes for the District No. 9 seat. He will face Shari Song of Newcastle, who got 35 percent of the vote. A third candidate, Kristina Macom, had 9 percent of the vote.

Port of Seattle Stephanie Brown, with 66 percent of the vote in the primary election, will face Michael Wolfe, who got 18 percent of the vote. A third candidate, Andrew Piloud, received 15 percent. Results will be periodically updated through Aug. 20 with the two candidates who have the most votes in each race advancing to the Nov. 5 general election. Celina Kareiva: 425-453-4290;

Former developer indicted for tax evasion A former Bellevue-based developer and lender who spent millions on gambling, thoroughbred horse racing, private aircraft, country club fees and a Bellevue penthouse, has been indicted for tax evasion and Social Security number fraud. Thomas R. Hazelrigg III, 67, of Rancho Mirage, Calif., faces for two counts of evading and defeating payment of tax, and two counts of Social Security number misuse. The charges contained in the indictment are only allegations. The detailed indictment, returned by the grand jury last week, describes how Hazelrigg first agreed to pay $533,454

in taxes owed for tax years 1989, 1990 and 1991 and then failed to pay the tax debt while living a lavish lifestyle that included private jets, multi-million dollar remodels, expensive artwork and high roller casino junkets.The Indictment also alleges that Hazelrigg evaded payment of his taxes owed for 1994, for which he had filed a return showing tax owed, but for which he made no payments. The indictment alleges that between 1997 and 2007, Hazelrigg illegally funneled income from his businesses into accounts that he controlled, but that which he kept secret from the

IRS and other creditors. Hazelrigg used these accounts to pay for the multimillion dollar purchase and remodel of a Bellevue penthouse, two Chihuly glass chandeliers worth more than $460,000, more than one million dollars in chips at various casinos, country club memberships for himself and associates, the leasing of private jets, the use of a butler, and more than $160,000 on race horses. The two counts of Social Security number misuse relate to Hazelrigg opening bank accounts in 2009, using the Social Security number of his deceased father.

Homebrew at the library


everal summers ago my kids and I spent an afternoon with my brother’s family canning and making pickles. They had a blast picking the cucumbers from the garden and putting them in the jars along with the dill, garlic and pickling spices. The toughest parts, though, fell to my brother and sister-in-law: scrubbing of jars, measuring and boiling and cleaning up. It was a great experience, but like many hobDarcy Brixey bies I’d considered trying, I was glad I could experience it before I invested my own time or money.

Council Roundup What’s going on in city government

Partnership approved for new gym at Hidden Valley The Bellevue City Council on Monday, Aug. 5 unanimously approved an agreement with Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue that allows the organization to lease a portion of Hidden Valley Park to build and operate a gymnasium. The organization intends to build a $5 million gym at the 17-acre park a few blocks north of downtown, on 112th Avenue Northeast. The 21,500-square-foot building will include three full-sized basketball courts and accommodate baseball batting cages and multiple sport courts, for sports including volleyball, badminton and pickleball. The city has no financial obligation for the gym, but would have access to it at no cost for community use, when it is not being used for BGCB activities. Under terms of the agreement, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue will construct, own and operate the gym, and lease the park land for $1 per year for 50 years. The city will continue to manage and schedule the use of Hidden Valley Park, and both the BGCB and the city will operate on-site programs and coordinate schedules to manage parking impacts and optimize community use of the gym and sports fields. The council also agreed that the city will equally share the cost with BGCB to complete up to $6 million in park improvements, including: ■ Converting the currently lighted field to synthetic turf; ■ Converting two additional infields to turf; ■ Adding a new unlighted sports field at the north end of the park; and ■ Parking, circulation and stormwater drainage improvements. Funding for the city’s share of the project (up to $3 million) will come from the voter-approved 2008 Parks & Natural Areas Levy. Construction is expected to begin in late fall or early spring and be completed by

This obviously doesn’t cover the interests of everyone in our service range so we love to bring other topics to interest a wider span of people. I’ve always thought brewing my own beer would be fun to try. It’s on my to-do list along with canning, pickling and race car driving. For now I’m happy to have the job of sampling and naming beers. But if you’re up for learning about homebrewing, the Bellevue Library will host a program called Intro To Beermaking from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28. The presenters, Mike Hausenfluck and Sean Drew, are homebrewers and members of the Impaling Alers Homebrew Club. They will discuss the process of brewing using malt extract, beer ingredients, equipment needed and the brewing process. Registration is required for this program.

Development Services staff to expand With a surge of major construction projects now beginning in Bellevue, the council authorized hiring up to 24 positions to Development Services over this year and next. With the economy’s continued recovery, builders are applying for permits for a variety of projects including office, multifamily, retail and single-family buildings, Development Services Director Mike Brennan told the council. Development Services, which includes staff from multiple departments, is funded with permit fees. Development Services shed 24 full-time employees, including inspectors and planners, during the recession. The authorization of additional positions in 2013 and 2014 will help the city to keep pace, as needed, with current demand. The news concerning Development Services was part of a financial status report for the second quarter. The city’s financial reports are available at www.bellevuewa. gov/financial_reports.htm.

SE Newport Way sidewalks? In response to concerns from residents of the recently annexed Eastgate area, the council directed staff to perform an environmental analysis of a project that would add sidewalks along a three-quarter-mile stretch of Southeast Newport Way. Depending on the results of the study, concerning the arterial from Somerset Boulevard to 150th Avenue Southeast, the council will consider adding the project to the 2013-2024 Transportation Facilities Plan this fall. On Monday the council adopted the TFP, which includes 43 projects recommended by the Transportation Commission to support Bellevue’s long-range land use vision and accommodate anticipated development. To be funded, projects in the TFP must be included in the city’s capital budget. The next Capital Investment Program Plan budget process (for the 2015-2021 CIP) will take place in 2014.

Harborview, King County Sexual Assault Resource Center to expand partnership

Heritage Corner A look at Bellevue’s past

Beginning in late September, the Harborview Center for Sexual Assault and Traumatic Stress will expand its partnership with the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center to provide counseling and legal advocacy services for children and families located on the Eastside. Both agencies have been providing services for children and families for many years, along with a smaller program, Children’s Response Center, under Harborview’s management. The new arrangement will consolidate services under two programs instead of three.

Both Harborview and the county agency will provide counseling, advocacy and prevention, and education services. The Children’s Response Center, which is located on the campus of Overlake Medical Center, will be integrated into the Harborview and King County services on Sept. 30. “We see this as an opportunity to further solidify the long standing collaborative relationship with (King County) and to increase the availability of services on the Eastside to include counseling for adults as well children and families,” said Lucy Berliner, direc-


Bellevue’s Coal Creek Park borders the Cougar Mountain Wildlife Park in King County. Coal Creek is the city of Bellevue’s largest natural resource park and was once the site of a thriving mining town. There are still mine shafts, exposed coal streams and mining equipment visible in the park as well as building remnants from different buildings and mine operations in the town – the hotel, a coal bunker, the wood flume which directed Coal Creek, and a railroad turntable foundation. The first settlement, Old Newcastle, was located near today’s 136th Ave. SE, just west of the golf course. By 1890 there were approximately 500 residents. By 1920 population was close to 1,000. In 1863, a survey party led by Edwin Richardson discovered eight bands of "stone cole" while working up a stream from Lake Washington. Hundreds of people soon flocked to the region intent on earning a living as coal miners. When the last mines closed in 1963, over 11 million tons of coal had been extracted. Coal was King County’s first large industry, helping Seattle become a major port city as it shipped coal to San Francisco from 1870 to 1930. Today the park offers lots of great hiking trails, easy access to Cougar Mountain and by the end of 2013, seven new interpretive signs, thanks to 4-Culture and the Eastside Heritage Center. Heritage Corner is a feature in the Bellevue Reporter. To learn more about Bellevue and Eastside history contact the Eastside Heritage Center at 425-450-1049 or visit

the Commanding Officer of the 194th Glider Infantry Company asked to train one squadron of glider pilots to serve as an additional infantry company for the initial phase of the operation. Major (then Captain) Charles Gordon volunteered the 435th Troop Carrier Group’s glider pilots for this mission and, once they had delivered their loads to Landing Zone S, just north of the city of Wesel, these men would quickly organize and become the 435th Provisional Glider Pilot Infantry Company. Assigned to bolster a gap between the 2nd and 3rd battalions of the 194th, the men of the 435th dug in at the crossroads of Holzweg and Hessenweg. Around midnight, a force of approximately 200 German infantry supported by a tank, a self-propelled artillery, and two 20mm flak guns attempted to break through the line. The 435th held their fire until the German force was only yards away, then opened up. Flight Officer Elbert Jella fired one round from a bazooka, the first and only time he had fired one in combat, and hit the tank, causing it to immediately reverse, destroying one of the flak guns as it backed over it. The German force retreated and was later further reduced by the 2nd battalion of the 194th. A common weapon used by German Infantry was the MP-40 submachine gun. Because of its rapid rate of fire, American troops nicknamed it the "Burp Gun." A reporter for the Stars and Stripes newspaper wrote an article about the 435th’s engagement the night of March 24, and called it ‘The Battle of Burp Gun Corner’. Captain Gordon and several of his men received recognition for this action, but Gordon believed that every

tor of the Harborview center. Mary Ellen Stone, executive director of King County center, echoed Berliner’s words.     “KCSARC is on the front line with victims of sexual assault and their families, and last year assisted more than 200 Eastside residents in addition to victims throughout King County. We have worked with (Harborview) for 35 years and are pleased that this expanded partnership will ensure that all Eastside victims of sexual assault and their families receive the help they need,” said Stone.

man in the company deserved recognition and made that recommendation. With the war in Europe ending just over a month after the beginning of the Varsity Operation, the recommendation was put aside and forgotten about by everyone except now Major Gordon. He continued to push for recognition and finally, 50 years after the event, Congress authorized the presentation of the Bronze Star Medal to every member of the 435th Glider Pilot Infantry Company. Most of the veterans of this battle were located and awarded their medal, but many were not. Some had passed away and others simply were not located. The remaining medals were stored by the National WWII Glider Pilots Association at the Silent Wings Museum in Lubbock, Texas. Trigger Time is an organization that recognizes and discusses the contribution made by all veterans of the nation’s military, particularly those associated with WWII airborne operations. This year’s convention will be held at the Seatac DoubleTree Hotel in SeaTac, Washington. Trigger Time had asked members of the glider pilots association to give a presentation at the convention and when it was discovered that Swenson had never received his Bronze Star. A ranking officer from Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) will present the award at 5 p.m. “This is really quite an honor,” Swenson said when he was interviewed about receiving the honor. Lt Colonel George Theis, USAF (Retired), the National Treasurer of the glider pilots association and a WWII glider pilot and veteran of the Varsity operation himself, said “The contributions and sacrifices made by the glider pilots of the US Army Air Forces aren’t as well-known as those of many other flying units. We always appreciate the opportunity to tell our story and are very proud to have one of our own recognized.”

Solar power works – even here in Washington BY PASCAL JEAN-BAPTISTE SPECIAL TO THE REPORTER

There’s been a lot of buzz about going green lately; especially when it comes to renewable energy sources like wind and solar — even the President mentioned more support for them in his inaugural address. By far the most popular of these is solar. But, before you even ask: Yes, solar does work in Washington. Solar panels consist of individual solar cells, which are connected together. They convert sunlight into electricity via the photovoltaic effect (PV). Solar cells absorb photons (light); which creates electrons. The electrons are directed out of the cells to create an electrical current. This current is in the form of a direct current, which is then converted into alternate current that your building can use. The average size of a panel for commercial and residential rooftop applications is around 15 square feet and weighs around 35 pounds. Most panels are rated for snow and wind loads of around 100 pounds per square foot and 50 pounds per square foot respectively. The advantages of solar are primarily that you can lower, or completely eliminate, your power bill; protect your money from inflation — just like buying a home, and get paid or credited for the excess energy that you send to the utility company. Other advantages are local job creation, reduc-

tion of greenhouse gases and ending our dependence on foreign oil. There are some disadvantages, such as the upfront cost. However, prices have fallen 50 percent since I started in 2008; plus, when you add the federal tax credit with state incentives, you get about a 50 percent reduction in the price. Of course, solar does not work at night or if there is a power outage — unless you have battery storage. There are mainly three types of solar systems. The grid-tied system is connected to the power grid and sends them the power you generate for a credit on your bill; anything that you generate in excess of your usage is either credited to your account or paid out once per year. Grid-tied with battery backup works the same way as a grid-tied system, except that if there is a power outage you will have electricity. A stand-alone system makes you independent of the utility company — you become your own utility service. This option is best used for power that is inaccessible in remote locations. Pascal Jean-Baptiste is the owner of Revosol Solar Energy, a solar PV design and sales company located in Bellevue. More information is available at

Being Healthy Starts with the Air You Breathe

Paid Advertisement

Local contractor helps Seattle homeowners make it a healthier place to live If you’re like most Seattle-Bellevue residents, keeping yourself and your family healthy is one of your top priorities, especially once school starts. So you might be surprised to know that the EPA and American Lung Association estimate that the air inside your home is anywhere from 7 to 100 times more polluted than the air outside. Most homeowners have good, high efficiency air filters in their heating system. While these trap particulates, in many cases there is little impact to overall indoor air quality. According to energy assessment expert, Cory Tobin (Certified Energy Auditor from Washington Energy Services), “Air filters are one part of a larger solution. One of the main reasons homes can be unhealthy is due to the original construction.” When your home was built, many small holes were drilled to run all of the plumbing, wiring, skylights, TV and other cables as well as heating and air conditioning ductwork. Unfortunately all of these seeming small holes and cracks collectively equal a “gaping hole the size of a basketball,” says Tobin. Imagine that in your living room!

How Do Contaminants Get into Your Home When your house was built many small holes were drilled to run all of the pipes, wiring, etc. Using a child’s drawing to illustrate the point, this creates a direct air exchange between your attic (the triangle) and your living pace (the square,) allowing unwanted pollutants to circulate through your home and wasting energy. The solution is simple, separate the square from the triangle by sealing your holes and ductwork. The result will be a healthier and more energy efficient home. You would never consider breathing the air from your attic or crawl space as your primary air source but that is exactly what is happening. Tobin explains, “these holes create a direct air exchange between your attic and your living space, allowing unwanted pollutants to circulate into your home and at the same time wasting valuable energy.”

and energy efficient they are eager to get involved.” The assessment, also known as an energy audit, is not just a walk through. Expect the auditor to be there for 3 hours conducting detailed tests and inspections. The assessment they perform gives homeowners the current health and energy efficiency of their home, and provides a clear plan for making improvements.

Breathe Easier and Save Energy

This service is normally $399 but Washington Energy Services is giving this away for only $199 for the next 30 days. After reviewing their assessment reports, homeowners who choose to perform upgrades using Washington Energy Services

“Getting started is easy” says Tobin. “The first step is a 26 point home comfort and energy assessment. It’s common sense really, once people see how easy it is to make their home healthier

may qualify to have their fee reimbursed. And depending on the needs of the home, there may be utility rebates and federal tax credits that can apply. “I am confident that homeowners who take advantage of this service will be delighted,” says Tobin. He says that they have received great feedback on Angies list where this service earns them an A rating. Washington Energy has already made improvements to hundreds of homes.

Still Life

Pitching a book – with help from a fairy godmother


ore than five hundred people went sleepless in Seattle the last week in July. I was one of them. We took part in the four-day annual conference of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association, which had crammed in enough formal activities to keep us going at least 12 hours a day. Panels of agents and editors helped prepare us for making our pitches by warning us what not to say. For example:

“Don’t say, ‘I’ve written the next Harry Potter…but my story is even better.’” “Avoid telling us, ‘My writing is like that of F. Scott Fitzgerald’” [or Ernest Hemingway or any other iconic American author]. “We’d rather not hear, ‘My book is a guaranteed

Ann Oxrieder

best seller.’” “When we ask you to give us a title of a similar book, so we have an idea of where yours would fit on a bookstore or library shelf, don’t say, ‘Mine is a cross between “Little House on the Prairie” and the “Transformers” comic book. In planning my pitch I avoided all these blunders, but that didn’t keep the jitters at bay during the hour before my pitch session began. I decided to hang out and rehearse in a space empty, but for a few people, tables and chairs. “I’m pitching this morning,” I said to a woman as she filled her coffee cup while I dunked my tea bag. I knew that those four words would communicate what I was feeling to any fellow writer. “I’m a therapist,” she answered. “Would

you like to talk?” I answered that question in a nano-second. She had successfully pitched to an agent a few years ago and her book was now on sale in the conference book store. I went on to give my two-minute spiel in a calmer state of mind. I talked to three agents and one editor and all said they’d like to receive samples from my novel. The outcome might not have been different without my new acquaintance’s help, but my attitude toward giving it had been transformed. She was my fairy godmother that day.

Police, residents get acquainted at National Night Out BY CELINA KAREIVA BELLEVUE REPORTER

“Wow, what does that do?” could be heard reverberating throughout the vendor booths and Bellevue Police Department exhibits at Crossroads mall, Tuesday. National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event to organize neighborhoods to fight crime, raise awareness and foster relationships between the community and police department. “We have a lot of entities and organizations the community still doesn't know about,” said Craig Hanaumi of the Crossroads police substation. “This offers a bridge of information.” Held from noon to 6 p.m. with block parties scattered throughout the city after hours, NNO generates support for local anti-crime efforts and aims to send a message of awareness to criminals. Exhibits included the Bellevue SWAT teams armored vehicle, a bomb squad booth and countless officers and volunteers on hand to answer questions. Kids and adults of all ages ogled the equipment, admiring motorcycles and police cars. “Can I buy that?” asked one little kid of the gadgets on display at a Bellevue SWAT booth. For the older set, it's an opportunity to ask about launching their own crime watch groups or the steps they can take to prevent burglaries in their neighborhood. “Burglaries are up and [neighbors] know it,” said Richard Chinn a crime prevention detective with the city, who noted that by mid-afternoon he already had plans to follow-up with four individuals about block watch. “It's about their community, their communication, being aware and understanding that we don't have enough officers to keep an eye on everything. Even if we did, if we quadrupled the amount, if I drive by your home, I don't know if it's a blue car that's supposed to be in your driveway, but your neighbors should.” For the police department, which underwent some painful cuts during the recession, the event also marks the return of several important outreach programs. In the spring, BPD again began hosting its Community Academy. “Community members are our eyes and ears,” said Carla

Detective Richard Chinn says that burglaries and block watches are some of the most popular topics of conversation at Iafrate, spokesperson for the department. “That's why we've caught so many burglars this year—it's the neighbors making a phone call when they see something suspicious.

We love these sort of events.” Celina Kareiva: 425-453-4290;

Gassing geese at Lake Sammamish Park raises concern

August 9, 2013 [15]



An effort to reduce the amount of goose poop at Lake Sammamish State Park by Canadian geese has drawn the ire of an Eastside wildlife and animal advocate. Diane Weinstein, who lives Klahanie, has questioned the way the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is using to kill the geese – gassing them in chambers. More than 90 geese were rounded up and gassed on June 21. "They do this in secrecy," Weinstein said. "They wait until they're molting and can't fly, because it's easier to round them up." More than 1,000 people have signed a petition by Action for Animals to protest the practice. "Nobody really likes doing this, but we're trying to balance the species," said Virginia Painter, spokesperson for Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. "We've tried for 30 years to remove the geese ‌ or get them to go away." Those efforts have included using cutouts of predators, herd dogs, and sour-tasting substance as goose repellents to get the geese to leave. Wildlife officials also have used egg addling, which involves removing an egg from a goose nest, terminating the development and returning the egg to the nest. Without an egg in the nest, the goose would begin laying again. For the state, the issue is one of health safety. "(Geese) can drop up to a pound of poop each per day," Painter said. "It carries a lot of bacteria: salmonella, giardia and cryptosporidia. E-coli is more prominent in areas of lots of goose poop." Painter said the goose droppings also can contaminate the lake by causing green algae bloom, which can kill fish and make swimmers really sick. Gassing the geese involves the use of carbon dioxide, which makes the birds go to sleep, painlessly. The method is deemed humane by the American Veterinary Medical Association. The CO2 is like anesthesia. Within 30 to 60 seconds the geese are asleep with no pain, and dead in

about another minute. Weinstein said she has worked with animal welfare groups and the Seattle Park Department to clean up goose poop at Magnuson Park. "You need signs telling people not to feed the geese," she said. However, Matt Cleland, district supervisor and a wildlife biologist with USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspec-

tion Service, says Lake Sammamish State Park does have signage about not feeding the geese and if a park ranger catches that happening, people will be asked to stop. While the geese are protected by the migratory bird act, Cleland said the USDA has a permit issued by the Fish and Wildlife Service to remove them. Linda Ball: 425-391-0363, ext. 5052;

For the last 10 months Greg Dale and his wife, Christina, have ventured down a path they never imagined. When his father faced a near death situation, Greg — a former developer and car salesman — was forced to think about a subject that never crossed his mind. “Everything had switched to a celebration of life,” he said. His father, who pulled out of his health scare in a Miami hospital, wished to become a part of an underwater memorial reef. Greg realized the reef would never work in Washington’s dark waters, but another business idea was born. After entering a Made In Washington store, Greg, who lives in Sammamish, saw glass hearts created by Seattle’s Glass Eye Studio. He approached studio ownership and a partnership quickly formed. “They just laughed and said, ‘yeah, let’s do this,’” Greg said. Greg launched Artful Ashes and Rainbow Bridge — separate companies focused on putting the ashes of loved relatives and pets inside blown glass hearts. “I don’t think anybody really wants the

colorful glass. As word of mouth spreads through social media and area funeral homes, Greg is set to increase the viewings to twice, then three times a month. Greg, who advertises his services at a number of locations in Sammamish and Issaquah, said 40 percent of the population nationwide opts for cremation — up 20 percent from 15 years ago. He said 70 percent of Washington residents look to cremation and the number is expected to reach 80 percent by the end of the year. “Funeral homes are too expensive,” Greg said. “It’s really kind of sad, nobody wants to go to a funeral. They’re looking for more a celebration of life type options and so that’s what we’re looking at.” Cheryl Rieser from Santa Rosa, Calif., made the trip north to Seattle earlier this week to place the ashes of her cat, Satine, in three separate hearts. “They have a beautiful, classy thing going on here,” said Rieser, who plans on expanding the hearts to the California market. Greg and Christina said they couldn’t have found a more rewarding career path. They typically deliver all the glass hearts to the door of their clients — resulting in one unique emotional experience after another. “When one customer a month hugs you, cries and thanks you that’s pretty good — it’s 95 percent of our customers,” Greg said. “It feels so valuable helping people heal.”

Adversity can impact children for life


ll of our kids experience pain and trauma at some point in their life. Sometimes, though, life’s bumps and curves rise to a level that can cause lasting impacts on a Patti Skeltonchild’s McGougan health and wellbeing, well into adulthood. Researchers have looked into serious events that a group of adults reported they had experienced as children; these were named “Adverse Childhood Experiences” (ACEs). The events studied were traumatic, and much more than the typical “bumps” of childhood. The original ACE Study, conducted between 1995 and 1997 by Kaiser Permanente and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has helped us understand how events in childhood, and even infancy, impact people later in life. It has also served as a platform for many other studies over the past 15 years. The foundation of ACE research is the correlation between the number of traumas in a child’s life and chronic diseases that develop as an adult, as well as social and emotional problems in adulthood. Researchers have found that exposure to traumas can cause physical damage to a developing brain – literally creating issues in the way a child’s brain becomes wired. The ACE Study categorizes 10 types of childhood trauma, and they fall into two categories. The first one involves family members and includes alcoholism, mental illness, domestic abuse of a mother, a family member in prison, or loss of a parent through divorce, death or abandonment. The other category involves those things that happen to the child and includes physical, verbal or sexual abuse as well as physical or emotional neglect. This list is by no means exhaustive because there are so many types of childhood trauma, such as overcoming a severe illness or accident, seeing a sibling abused, being homeless, poverty and more. Only 10 childhood traumas were followed in the study because they were the most commonly mentioned and they had all been well re-

searched. It’s likely that those who have experienced other types of toxic stress over months or years would also face a greater risk of health consequences. The more ACEs a child has, and the longer the exposure to stress, the greater the risk for problems throughout life. Behavior problems defined in the study include substance abuse, reduced physical activity, or missed school or work.

Physical issues include severe obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and STDs. Mental health problems manifest as anxiety, depression or suicide attempts. For teens and older children, the overload of stress hormones can make learning more difficult and impact the ability to trust adults or develop healthy relationships with peers. To relieve their stress, they may turn to

unhealthy choices like alcohol, overindulgence of food, marijuana (or other drugs), high-risk sports, multiple sex partners, or over-achievement. Of course, not every child exposed to adversity is going to develop problems. As parents, we can take steps to build resilience in our children that can help them overcome the impact of ACEs or any stressor. For example, help children

make friends; engage them in age-appropriate volunteer activities; maintain a daily routine; and help kids set attainable goals and steps to achieve them. You can teach your child ways to take a break from stress or what’s worrying them, such as through creative activities like music or art, or other things he or she enjoys. The goal is a balance that provides children with

better tools to manage the after-effects of ACEs, or any kind of stress, within a supportive, stimulating environment. Family counseling can also be a very useful tool to achieve this balance. Patti Skelton-McGougan is executive director of Youth Eastside Services. For more information, call 425-7474937 or go to

Running for his faith Maccabiah Games run of a lifetime for longtime Bellevue man BY JOSH SUMAN BELLEVUE REPORTER

When Terry Robinson was chosen last summer to run the half marathon for Team USA at the Maccabiah Games in Israel, he knew it would be the opportunity of a lifetime. What he couldn’t have known was it would also be one of the physically and emotionally draining races he would ever run. “It was one of the most excruciating experiences I’ve ever had,” he said, adding the humidity was upwards of 80 percent during the race. “But being able to overcome that and be accountable to my teammates is what really pulled me through.” Robinson did more than merely pull through during the 13.1 mile the race, earning a Silver Medal against top Jewish competitors from around the world and making lifelong friends in the process at the event known as the Jewish Olympics. He said the magnitude of competing in an international competition set in well before the race. “Walking into the stadium for opening ceremonies was an incredible feeling,” Robinson said. “I never thought I would

compete on this large of a stage.” The stage, for Jewish athletes around the world and all athletes in Israel, has grown to become the third largest in the world for an olympic event since beginning in 1932 and this year featured around 150 athletes who also participated in the London Olympics in 2012. Along with many Paralympic events, the 19th installment of the Maccabiah Games included 42 sports and Robinson was part of a United States delegation of some 2,000 athletes. “I felt blessed with the opportunity to represent our country and wear ‘Team USA’ on my jersey,” Robinson said. “It was pretty amazing.” Despite the weather conditions, which sent many of his teammates for intravenous fluids and two more to the hospital, Robinson said the experience of connecting with other Jewish athletes from around the United States and world was an invaluable experience. “The relationships I made were all unique,” he said. “It was not just competing, but representing our country and experiencing the unique atmosphere of an olympics.”

Local baseball clubs hosting tryouts for 2014


Bellevue girls win national title Through the hoards of spectators, competitors and volunteers at the championship game of the U14 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Overland Park, Kan. last week, one face stood out. It was former Eastside FC and current U20 US Women’s Soccer coach Michelle French, who spent much of the past five years preparing the 98 Red squad for exactly the type of moment they faced in Kansas, where they captured the first national title for a Washington team since 1996. “She’s a great coach and has taught us so many things since we were little,” said Jojo Harber, who scored four of Eastside’s five goals in the tournament. “One of those was to play for each other and that helped us throughout this tournament.” French was able to attend the tournament and watch as coach Tom Bialek led the team to a 2-0-1 record in pool play and

spot in the championship game, where goals from Harber and Ellie Bryant (off an assist from Catie Buck) gave Eastside a lead it would not surrender en route to the championship. “It’s a moment I’ll never forget,” Harber said. “We’re all really close and have been together for five years. We love each other on and off the field.” Goalkeeper Molly Monroe and the Eastside FC defense allowed only a single goal in four games of the tournament. In addition to the tournament championship, the team also earned the sportsmanship award and Harber was named Golden Ball Award recipient for her goal scoring efforts. Harber and defender Kaylene Pang were named to the Best 11 squad for the tournament as well. Sophia Butterfield, Katie Foster, Maud Van der Kooi, Buck, Bryant and Harber are all from Bellevue.

Jay Inslee to serve as the student trustee on the Bellevue College Board of Trustees. Dzhuraeva, 23, an international student from Tajikistan, studied architecture before coming to Bellevue. She earned her Associate’s Degree in Interior Design in 2012 at BC and then continued into the Bachelor’s Degree program. She was elected President of BC’s Associated Student Government and served in that role for the 2012-13 school year. In addition to holding numerous positions with student government and participating in many volunteer activities, she is a member of the International Interior Design Association Northern Pacific Chapter. “It’s a great pleasure and honor for me to serve on the board and to be the student voice in governing the college,” said Dzhuraeva. “It’s important to have student representation on the board,” said BC Board of Trustee’s chair Marie Gunn. “Takhmina will provide a valuable perspective to our discussions and decisions.” “Takhmina has been an excellent leader as student body president,” said BC President Dr. David Rule. “Now she can continue to help make a difference at BC.” Dzhuraeva is only the second student in history to serve as a trustee at any of Washington’s community and technical colleges, after a bill passed in 2012 allowing it. Bellevue College is the only college that has taken advantage of the opportunity and Dzhuraeva succeeds Robert Rowe, the first student trustee. As a student trustee, Dzhuraeva will have all of the duties and powers of a regular trustee, but must excuse herself

Police targeting distracted drivers The Washington State Patrol and local law enforcement agencies have extra patrols on the road, targeting distracted drivers, connected to the use of cellular phones or texting while driving in King County. The enforcement effort will continue through Aug. 23. "Distracted driving is quickly becoming one of the main reasons for collisions on our roadways,” said Lt. Michael Rupert of the Washington State Patrol. “Just like drunk driving, distracted driving is illegal and threatens the safety of other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists,” said Dr. Beth Ebel, of Harborview Medical Center.“We see the consequences from the

distraction too often in the trauma center.” Research by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission (WTSC) showed that from 2009-2012, distracted driver-involved collisions accounted for 20 percent of all traffic deaths in King County.A study by the University of Utah confirmed that subjects who text while driving are six times more likely to be involved in a collision than a drunk driver. Distracted driving goes beyond just cellular phone use or texting; reading, eating and adjusting music are other factors that can affect a driver’s ability to operate a vehicle in a safe manner.

State Patrol suspects texting and driving causing accidents The Washington State Patrol is beginning to suspect that many of the collisions which cause traffic backups and delays are caused by people who are texting and driving at relatively low speeds. “You and I are sitting in traffic, going nowhere, because someone ahead of us was texting,” said WSP Chief John R. Batiste. “We think texting is a factor in far more of these minor collisions than we’ll ever be able to

In Washington State, drivers are prohibited from texting or talking on their cellular phones without the use of a hands-free device.The fine for a violation is $124, but could be increased in the case of a traffic collision.Teens with intermediate driver licenses or learner permits may not use a wireless device at all while driving, including hands free devices, unless they’re reporting an emergency. This special patrol is funded by grants from the King County Emergency Medical Services and WTSC with the coordination of the King County Target Zero Task Force.

prove.” The information is a departure from the State Patrol’s historic practice of offering advice only when it has objective data. The Patrol knows with great certainty the number of people killed by speeding, impaired driving or the failure to wear a seat belt. Not so with texting-while-driving in collisions which cause only minor property damage. Traffic violations that lead to minor collisions are civil infractions, not crimes. “We do not have the legal authority to get search warrants for cell phone records in cases of minor collisions,” Batiste said. “Our priority in those cases is to get traffic moving again.” State Troopers cited over 1,000 drivers last year for texting at the wheel.Over 6,600 drivers were cited for talking on their cell phones without using a hands free device.The fine for any cell phone violation is $124.If the traffic violation results in a collision, additional fees could be added.

Celebrated savant artist Michael Tolleson will put his craft on display this weekend as part of the 13th Autism Day in Carnation. Tolleson will produce an original acrylic painting from the center stage gazebo at the celebration, which offers free activities for families and caregivers of people on the autism spectrum. “Michael has generously agreed to donate his time and the painting he creates to help our cause,” said Autism Day founder Lynn Banki of Sammamish. “Our goal every year is to provide contact with real-life resources available to families touched by autism.” Activities have been scheduled from 11am until 3pm on Saturday, Aug. 10. Tolleson is scheduled to begin his painting at noon. The completed painting will be donated to a charity that supports children with autism. Tolleson is best known for completing his impressionistic images of animals and landscapes in no more than 30 minutes. Shadows play a major role in many of his pieces. Tolleson has produced and sold more than 350 paintings in the past 24 months. “These are not my images. I am only the vessel that holds the brush while the painting is being created,” he explained.

Local artist Shirley Rudolf recently received a special recognition award in the “13th Annual Summer Juried Online International Art Exhibition” hosted by Upstream People Gallery. The international exhibition, which received approximately 120 art entries from around the world, recognized 24 artists who were selected by the juror Laurence Bradshaw, professor of art at the University of Nebraska in Omaha. Rudolf submitted five acrylic and watercolor paintings featuring close-up views of flowers and a bird. “[Rudolf] shows a kind of Georgia O’Keefe vision and format of close ups of flowers,” Bradshaw said. “Her ‘Peony’ in its asymmetry is quite delicately portrayed.”’ The exhibition will be featured online throughout August at, and will continue indefinitely in the archives section of the website.

Mardette D. DeGarmo Flodin

December 28, 1923 – July 22, 2013

Mardette Flodin, 83, passed away in Bellevue,WA. on Sunday,August 4th, 2013. Mardette was born to Gerald and Marjorie DeGarmo on March 31st, 1930 in Seattle. She grew up in the Madison Park neighborhood and attended McGilvra Elementary and Garfield High School. After high school, Mardette attended the University of Washington, where she was active in the Alpha Phi Sorority. She graduated from the University of Washington in 1951 with a degree in Interior Design. While visiting friends on Bainbridge Island with her family, Mardette met the love of her life, Roger Flodin. Mardette and Roger married on August 25th, 1950. They spent a few years in Spokane and eventually moved to Bellevue, where they raised their three children: Leslye, Kerry and Doug. Mardette modeled for the Beverly Brooks Studio, doing runway shows for Best Apparel, now known as Nordstrom. She was a founding member of the Bellevue Art Museum and was also co-chairman of the 1983 Bellevue Arts & Crafts Fair. She put in countless hours organizing the beginning years of the fair along with the help of her husband and children. Mardette belonged to the Retarded Childrens Guild, Bellevue Plant Club, Killarney Circle Bridge Club and spent some of her free time bowling in a “Ladies League” at Belle Lanes. Mardette and Roger spent their early years of retirement traveling to Europe, visiting countries such as Germany, France, Italy, Turkey and Spain, while exploring many art museums, a passion that they shared. One of their favorite places was Maui, Hawaii, where they enjoyed the “Aloha Spirit,” spending time with friends, playing tennis and soaking up the sun. They continued their love of the sun by spending summers at their Tulalip Shores Beach home that they built together as a family. Mardette is survived by her husband, Roger; her daughter, Leslye Lewis; her son, Kerry and his wife Kathy; her son, Doug and his wife Suzanne; her granddaughter, Whitney Ford and her husband Jordan; grandsons Spencer, Neil and Riley; and greatgranddaughter Reese Ford. We Love You, Mardette, Mom, Grammy! Per Mardette’s wishes, a private family service will be held. 856212

Jim Cadigan of Bellevue passed away July 22, 2013 at the age of 89. Jim was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, to Allen Michael and Elizabeth Mae (Winslow) Cadigan, both of Johnsonburg, Pennsylvania. He spent most of his life in Washington State. After completing his service duty as a Cadet Squadron Commander in the Army Air Corps, he attended the College of Puget Sound where he met his future wife, Mary. They married In Tacoma, Washington on November 26, 1946. He later enlisted in the Air Force Reserves serving as a navigator and retired as a Major in 1983. After more than three decades in federal civic service, he retired from the General Services Administration in 1978, as the Finance Director of GSA’s Northwest Region. In retirement, he took up sailing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and hiking, all with his wife Mary. He joined the Issaquah Alps Trail Club, serving for a time as treasurer. For over two decades he devoted time to blazing and maintaining trails, and leading hikes, taking in the natural beauty of his surroundings and its wildlife. Jim considered a climb on Mt. Rainier with a small group in his early 60’s, among his most memorable achievements. He was predeceased by his wife and companion of 62 years, Mary Elizabeth (Wight), and his brother Robert A. Cadigan of Denver, Colorado. He is survived by his four children Kathy Batie (Tom) of Portland Oregon, Jim Cadigan (Jocelyne) of Cincinnati, Ohio, Helen Cadigan of Bellevue, and Douglas Cadigan of Los Angeles. He is also survived by grandchildren Kim, Carrie, Summer, James, Jonathan, and Elizabeth; great grandchildren Jack, Gracie, and Chloe; and several nephews and nieces.

in Reno in 2002 for nine months. While in Reno, he had a heart attack, as a result of the dialysis, and was in a coma for 22 days. His lab results all went to the California region. For the next five years he made a point to have his labs sent to both districts to increase his odds of getting kidneys. During those five years he was considered only a candidate for a transplant because of his deteriorating condition. He went back to California to see his kids, and as he was about to return to Washington, he had a call from UCLA. They had two kidneys from a 21-year-old Orange County man. He was told they’d call him by 9 p.m. while the doctors verified if it was a match. At 11:09 p.m., he got the call — it was a match. “The next day, June 19, 2010, my birthday, I was on the table,” he said. “I asked if we could pray, and 26 staff sang ‘How great is our God.’ Fifteen hours later I was singing, ‘Nothing is impossible.’ Ever since that day someone has crossed

my path and asked for my advice and help (about transplants). A Joint Base Lewis-McChord wife told me her husband was blind. Through a cornea transplant he can see again.” That’s why he started a Washington State chapter of Transplant Recipients International Organization. With a background in business and a masters in systems management, he felt confident he could help spread the message that folks who need organ transplants are more than statistics. Every 12 minutes someone is added to the list of patients who need donated organs. The website for UNOS (United Network for Organ Sharing) shows an up to the minute count of “transplant trends.” As of this writing, 119,068 people in the United States are on the transplant list, with 9,190 transplants performed from January to April of this year and 4,535 donors in the same time period. TRIO is a national group, recognized by the Dept. of Health and the Dept. of Education. Right now, Hall is the only one with TRIO, Washington. He speaks at churches, civic groups, and toastmasters.

David Hall, a writer and journalist, was hard at work at Microsoft in 1999, as it prepared to release Encarta, its digital multimedia encyclopedia. He’d been putting in extremely long hours, was going through a divorce and was a father of four children. He worked all night and had breakfast, and just didn’t feel well at all. It was 6:38 a.m. — he remembers it well. He went to the hospital, his doctor told him gray was not a good color for him, and he woke up five days later in the intensive care unit. Both his kidneys had failed. “I looked around the room and see all this equipment, and realized it was hooked up to me,” he said. The doctors suspected the cause was hypertension – high blood pressure. “Stress is the silent killer,” Hall said. He already knew his kidney function was not 100 percent. Normal levels of

creatinine in the blood are approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams per deciliter in adult males — his was five. The kidneys filter out creatinine, a chemical waste molecule, and dispose of it in urine. Kidney failure can lead to a myriad of problems, including heart disease, diabetes and strokes, and people of color have three times more chance of developing other symptoms. Hall is black. With both kidneys gone, Hall started the long journey of 10 years of kidney dialysis. “Dialysis duplicates kidney function,” Hall said. The kidneys eliminate waste from our blood. In dialysis, they took all the blood out of Hall’s body, cleansed it, and put it back in. Without dialysis, waste levels will build up and eventually kill the patient. Hall has lumps in his left arm from the insertion of special catheters for the blood to come in and out of. Hall spent six to eight hours,
