520 bridge project may sink into the red Pontoon problems may cost taxpayers another $128 million to fix

Problems on the new 520 bridge not only could wipe out the state's reserve fund for the project, but also send it into the red. New documents released Friday, Aug. 23, show that delays and the need to redesign pontoons could wipe out the final $100 million that's left in the state's $250 million reserve fund for the $4.18 billion project. Worse, it could cost another $128 million to fix the flaws. And, the the project is now estimated to be completed in April 2016, 490 days late from its original completion

date of the end of 2014. The state also said it only has money to continue to work on the project through mid2014. The bulk of the problem is due to design errors by the state Department of Transportation that results in cracks in pontoons and the need for costly fixes. DOT spokesman Lars Erickson, a spokesperson for the department, said the $228 million costs are only "planning estimates" and that the state would negotiate any new costs with the contractors.

Bellevue to launch new social, emotional learning curriculum

Lake Bellevue community forms alliance with developer to monitor environment as Bel-Red grows BY CELINA KAREIVA BELLEVUE REPORTER

The Bel-Red corridor is slated for some big changes in the coming years. On Wednesday, Burnstead Construction’s Pine Forest Properties, Inc. held a public meeting to discuss a multi-use project that, if permitted, could result in six buildings and 2,172 new parking stalls. The space is just north of Lake Bellevue and a car dealership. City documents indicate that buildings would range from nine to 12 stories. When completed in 2023, East Link light rail will run through the newly minted transit-oriented corridor. Then of course is the long-anticipated Spring District, a 36-acre urban neighborhood spearheaded by Seattle firm

vary by as much as $36 million. Complicating the state's position is that the Legislature didn't pass a new transportation package this year and lawmakers are uncertain if the new figures would help or hurt the state's efforts in the future. The failed package contained an additional $100 million for the 520 project. The new details about the additional costs came after KOMO News filed a public-records request. Previously, the state had been gone to releasing reports that didn't include dollar figures.

The Bellevue School District will launch a new social and emotional learning curriculum in grades three through five to help children work well together. Called the RULER approach – an acronym for Recognizing, Understanding, Labeling, Expressing and Regulating emotion – the curriculum teaches skills to promote effective personal, social and workplace success. The idea is based on decades of research from Yale University, Research shows that emotional literacy skills support academic success and promote school engagement. school officials say. Data also shows that students who recognize and regulate their emotions are more focused on instruction and invested in their learning. Those social and emotional skills create a foundation for taking academic risks Over the school year, students and staff will learn four "anchor tools" to develop skills: ■ Emotional Literacy Charter: Students create and sign charters to describe how they want to feel in class, what needs to happen to support those feelings and guidelines for handling uncomfortable conflict. ■ Mood Meter: Students learn to use a tool for SEE CURRICULUM, 15

Off-duty Bellevue lifeguard saves choking girl at Kirkland restaurant While celebrating her friend’s birthday at Plaza Garcia Family Mexican Restaurant in Kirkland, 11-year-old Ailee Donald knew something was terribly wrong when she accidentally swallowed a piece of hard candy. Almost instantly, she showed the universal choking sign (hands clutched to the throat). Michelle Geraghty, the mother of Sarah, the “birthday girl,” observed a scared look on Ailee’s face and immediately started the Heimlich maneuver on the 11year girl. As Geraghty applied the standard five thrusts to the girl’s abdomen and five blows to her back, restaurant patron and off-duty Bellevue lifeguard George Meier took notice from several tables away. Meier’s mom took notice too and announced to the crowd that her son knew how to perform first aid to a choking victim. His uncle called 9-1-1 as Meier approached the gathering, calmly introduced himself to Ailee and asked permission to begin the Heimlich maneuver. After administering the Heimlich, what

appeared to be food came out of the girl’s mouth, which restored her airway. The candy remained in her throat and melted by the time she was transported to the hospital. Kirkland Fire Chief Kevin Nalder and the Fire Station 25 fire aid crew who responded to the 9-1-1 call and Ailee reunited at Plaza Garcia on Aug. 19 to honor Meier for his heroism. Meier received a certificate of recognition from the Kirkland Fire Department and a handmade thank you card from Ailee. Meier has been a lifeguard for the city of Bellevue for more than four years and is a trained first aid and CPR provider. He credits his training to the American Red Cross and the “on-the-job” training he receives for his lifeguard job. Ailee said she was familiar with the Heimlich maneuver because her stepsister had given it to someone. She and Sarah Geraghty plan to take a babysitting class so they can learn more about first aid.

Mandarin Dual Language School selects name The Bellevue School District's new Mandarin Dual Language School will be named Jing Mei Elementary School. The name, which means “beautiful view” in Mandarin, was recommended by the school community. The school is located at the Bellewood site in east-central Bellevue. Bellevue’s Mandarin Dual Language program expanded this year to an entire school in order to meet the demand by parents and students. The school, which is the only Mandarin Dual Language School in the state that follows a two-way model, is led by Principal Vivian Tam. Student enrollment in the classes is balanced between

native Mandarin speakers and students who speak other languages such as English, Spanish and Hindu, English and Mandarin are used to teach the curriculum throughout the day. The goal is for students to develop high levels of proficiency and literacy in both languages, to demonstrate high levels of academic achievement, and develop an appreciation for and an understanding of diverse cultures. Jing Mei Elementary will welcome its first students – more than 100 students enrolled in kindergarten through second grade – on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Mercer Island councilmember nominated for 41st District seat A member of the Mercer Island City Council has been selected by Democrats in the 41st Legislative District to replace former Rep. Marcie Maxwell, D-Renton. The district includes a portion of Bellevue. Maxwell resigned her position to join the staff of Gov. Jay Inslee as an education adviser. Tana Senn received 49 out of 82 votes cast by Democrat precinct committee officers of the 41st District. Under state law, precinct officers of the representative's party nominate three candidates to fill the seat. The final decision will be made by the King County Council sometime next month. District Democrats also nominated Bellevue businessman George Pieper and David Ellis of Mercer Island. After the vote, both Pieper and Ellis threw their support to Senn. "I am thrilled and honored by the faith the Democratic party has put in me," Senn

said. She is not certain when the County Council will vote, but said it will be followed immediately by a swearing-in ceremony. Two other people sought the appointment: Tana Senn Don Gerend, a member of the Sammamish City Council and Sammamish resident Greg Hoover, an attorney with his practice, Hoover Law Group, in Seattle and Portland. Senn has been a member of the Mercer Island City Council since her appointment to the post vacated by former city mayor, Jim Pearman, in 2012. She is unopposed for her City Council seat in the November general election. If selected by the County Council, she plans on retaining her seat on the City Council and would decide later if she will seek the state seat in the 2014 election.










Health officials announce public exposure to new measles case Local public health officials have confirmed a measles infection in a child who was in one public location in King County during the contagious period. The child is a King County resident who was unvaccinated and exposed to measles while traveling in Europe. This measles case is unrelated to previous ones in King County in July 2013. Health officials say the child was at the Aladdin Gyro-cery, 4139 University Way NE, Seattle on Aug. 18 between 1-4:20 p.m. In addition, the child was at several public locations in Oregon while contagious, including a tennis tournament. A number of the participants who were at the tournament are from King County; health officials are following up directly. If a person was in these areas at the times above and not immune to measles, the most likely time they would become sick is between Aug. 25 and Sept. 8. Public health officials have notified the locations where the public may have been exposed. Because most people in the area have immunity to the measles through vaccination, the risk to the general public is low. In addition, outdoor exposure locations carry lower risk. However, all people who were in the locations around the same time as the

individual with measles should find out if they have been vaccinated for measles or have had measles previously and call a health care provider promptly if they develop an illness with fever or illness with an unexplained rash between the listed dates. To avoid possibly spreading measles to other patients, they should not go to a clinic or hospital without calling first to tell them you want to be evaluated for measles. Measles outbreaks are occurring frequently in Europe. All travelers to Europe should be fully vaccinated with two doses of measles vaccine before travel. Measles is a highly contagious and potentially severe disease that causes fever, rash, cough, and red, watery eyes. It is mainly spread through the air after a person with measles coughs or sneezes. Measles symptoms begin seven to 21 days after exposure. Measles is contagious from approximately four days before the rash appears through four days after the rash appears. People can spread measles before they have the characteristic measles rash. People at highest risk from exposure to measles include those who are unvaccinated, pregnant women, infants under six months of age and those with weakened immune systems.

New trial for former Medina Police Chief Former Medina Police Chief Jeffrey Chen's $2 million verdict against the city has been tossed out by the federal judge who heard the case. U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Zilly on Friday, Aug. 23, ordered a new trial, saying the jury was influenced by the misconduct of Chen's attorney during the trial. Chen had sued the city, claiming he was fired because of racial discrimination. In his order, Zilly said Chen's attorney, Marianne Jones, "“relied primarily on innuendo and subterfuge rather than on evidence” to convince the jury that racial

discrimination played a role in Chen's firing. Zilly said it is the first time in his 25 years as a judge that he has ordered a new trial. As part of the jury's ruling in March, former City Manager Donna Hanson was ordered to pay Chen $25,000 in punitive damages. Hanson later left her job following an agreement with the city that paid her more than $200,000 that included a year's pay, deferred compensation and other benefits. Zilly said the two sides have 28 days to tell him when they will be ready for a new trial.

REPORTER Q/A | Don Davidson Earlier this month, Bellevue City Council member Don Davidson, who has served the city in one form or another since the early 1980s, conceded the primary race for the Position No. 6 seat. He leaves newcomers Lynne Robinson and Vandana Slatter to battle it out in the general elections. But Davidson vows that his service is far from over. Below he talks about his future plans and the “shake up” that is this election cycle. BY CELINA KAREIVA BELLEVUE REPORTER Reporter: In your day job as a dentist, you must hear from Bellevue residents on a near daily basis. Don Davidson: I have my little public meetings every day. If there’s something in the news, they want to talk about it. If I want them to shut up, I just put my drill in their mouth. [Laughs]. Actually they’re pretty used to me being in politics. Though I still have trouble thinking of myself as a politician.

Reporter: What are the agenda items facing the council in these coming months and in the next term? Davidson: Well we haven’t done the Shoreline Expansion package. That’s one we’re working on. First there’s comprehensive planning and zoning. A lot of that’s before us. The budget is always there. It appears because of growth. We need infrastructure done. If deDon Davidson velopment is too soon, you don’t grow and...if there’s growth and building at the time, there are impact fees and things like that. It’s a timing issue. I’m very conservative from that standpoint. Well, from a lot of standpoints.

Reporter: What do you make of people saying that your concession is part of a council “shake-up”? Reporter: You recently conVandana Slatter Davidson: Well I don’t think ceded. How are you feeling coming Lynne or Vandana is as conservaout of the primaries? endorsed by majority tive as I am. It wasn’t too long ago Davidson: You always like to of City Council that “liberals” was a bad word. And win, but I tell a lot of people, you now “conservative” is a bad word. shouldn’t play the game unless you That’s politics; it tends to wander can handle losing. It doesn’t mean Bellevue City Councilmembers back and forth. you have to like it, but you have to Jennifer Robertson and Kevin Walbe able to deal with it. I’m pursulace today announced their supReporter: What were some of ing two of my big interests: one is port for candidate Vandana Slatter, the issues brought before council salmon recovery and the other is adding to Councilmembers Claudia in your early days and how do they possibly the Cascade Water AlliBalducci’s and Don Davidson’s encompare with those now? ance –something might come out dorsements in the position 6 seat. Davidson: In the early years of that. I’m not going away, as I tell “As our city grows, Vandana [the discussion] was all about everybody.

Basically I just want to have my grandchildren see salmon. There were 200 up by Microsoft a couple of years ago. Reporter: Does Bellevue’s rapid growth – in areas such as Bel-Red near Lake Bellevue – pose a serious threat then to the environment? Davidson: Well it compounds it because of run-off and all those issues, but I think we all want clean water and clean air. And I think managed growth is the way to go otherwise we’ll have sprawl.

Reporter: Bellevue’s skyline is often the focus of the headlines. What do you say of residents and their neighborhoods who complain that they don’t garner as much attention? Davidson: Well I’d say to not allow Sound Transit to run through it. For the life of me I can’t figure out why everybody is running on protecting neighborhoods. We had the opportunity to do it, and didn’t do it. It drives me crazy. We could have either done B7 and taken it across and down the railroad or built a deep-bore tunnel under Surrey Downs, along 108th basically. They’re doing it all over Seattle. I don’t know why it’s cost-effective in Seattle and cost-prohibitive in Bellevue. It looks like the same dirt to me. I’m not opposed to light rail, I’m opposed to where it’s going – in my wetlands, in my single family neighborhoods...You couldn’t have found a worse place to put this thing. Reporter: Anything you would have done differently with hindsight? Davidson: The worst [mistake] I tell everybody is the $30 per sq. foot I didn’t buy that used to be a women’s clinic in the Downtown Park. We’re now selling downtown for $500 a sq. foot., so that wasn’t one of my bigger hours. There’s a lot of stuff I’d do differently, but politics is timing. Something can be successful at one point in time and a total disaster at another. I do know that I don’t always vote the same as I did before. I’m sure other people would criticize things.

Back to school means it’s time to slow down


ur children return to the classroom on Tuesday and while some parents may be cheering the date, it’s also a time of concern: More than one-fourth of child pedestrian fatalities occur between 3-7 p.m. Those times are when schools are dismissing kids from the classroom or when they are headed home from schoolrelated activities. Now, more than ever, drivers need to be careful turning corners, backing out of driveways and driving through school zones. Making things worse is that the days around here will get dark and rainy as fall and winter approach. We expect that the police will be out in force next week, radar guns in hand, along streets that pass by schools. And we trust that they will hand out tickets even to those who say, “oops, sorry” when they’re pulled over. So let’s all take a deep breath, take our feet off the gas pedal and put kids first. Slow down. AAA has some good advice for motorists: ■ Slow down and obey the 20 M.P.H. speed limit in school zones. ■ Eliminate distractions. Sometimes kids dart into the road unexpectedly. ■ Don’t roll through stop signs in school zones or neighborhoods.

Bellevue in good hands One of the things I love about Bellevue is that it is a big city with a small town heart. Over the last few years, I have seen our downtown area blossoming into a beautiful and well-maintained commercial hub. It's great to see that hundreds of businesses call our city home. But at the same time, the hardworking members of our City Council have sought to preserve our high quality of life and to minimize the negative impacts of economic development on our neighborhoods. Unlike other cities, Bellevue has plenty of public parks and open spaces. In addition, we can feel safe because the council has balanced the budget without sacrificing public services. It also has worked to improve our education system while trimming wasteful spending and keeping our tax burden low. The election this November is an important one in determining Bellevue's future. Mayor Conrad Lee and the City Council are looking out for the city's best interests, and we can rest assured that Bellevue is in good hands.

A Thumbs Up for Taco Time In consideration of your "thumbs up" editorial, I'd like to acknowledge the fine staff at Taco Time on 156th Avenue Northeast in Bellevue. On the evening of Aug. 24, my sons and I had dinner at Taco Time. My son accidentally left his phone that he had saved for for over a year behind on the table. When we got home and discovered it missing, we called the restaurant and one of the employees had noticed it on the table and held it for us. Sounds so cliche, but It's so refreshing to know there are caring and honest people out there. Thank you to the fine staff at this location.

Cartoon simplistic on guns The editorial cartoon in the Aug. 23 issue of the Bellevue Reporter presented an unbalanced and, I believe, inaccurate depiction of guns in our society. An armed robber holding up a store with a "No Guns Allowed Inside" sign says to the clerk with his arms in the air, "Thanks for making my life easier." Are we to assume that an armed clerk and customers would make the store safer for its customers? Hundreds of Americans die every year in gun-related accidents. How high would those numbers climb with more armed citizens? The subject is complicated and simplistic statements like this cartoon do little to enlighten anyone.

Jeff Jawer, Bellevue

Cartoon on guns an outrage Your editorial "cartoon" in the Aug. 23 edition is an outrage.The proliferation of firearms in our society is a cancer and you trivialize it with such pathetic "opinion" by demeaning a rational attempt by Seattle and Washington Ceasefire to curb it. Left unchecked, there will soon be more fatalities annually in the United States from firearms than from auto accidents. According to the report "Homicide, Suicide and Unintentional Firearm Fatality: Comparing the United States With Other High-Income Countries," by Richardson and Hemenway, among 23 such countries, 80 percent of all firearm deaths, 86 percent of all women killed by guns, and 87 percent of all children killed by firearms were in the United States.And this is the kind of society you promote? Unfortunately, since your paper is free and shows up in my driveway whether I want it or not, I can't un-subscribe.But if I could, I most certainly would.

Seahawks’ bandwagon only a one-way ticket F

Not really 'family time' I stopped into my local downtown Bellevue Starbucks on a recent morning. As I waited for my coffee, I happened to notice many families, each at their own tables, with everyone’s eyes looking down at their technical devices. Fathers, mothers and children. No one speaking or making eye contact. The children ranged from maybe eight to young teens. I somehow find it hard to believe this is what we call quality time spent with our children. We are losing com-

munication verbally and visually. I am now a grandmother myself, but can remember many conversations with my parents. I was able to see and understand their loving and sometimes stern expressions. Everyone is now looking down into a piece of plastic and I find it so sad. Maybe Sunday mornings are a good day to hit the off switch and reconnect with family.

whatever I want!"). But regardless of how one views the place of the fan within the framework of the game, one thing is not up for debate: at one point, every fan was new. Not all of us are handed fandom as a birthright from an obsessed loved one, destining us for a lifetime of emotional peaks and valleys as our stomachs turn on last-second field goals and critical red zone stops. Most people who come to enjoy a sport or a specific team or individual are introduced to them later, and make a conscious decision to become a fan. But once that decision is made, it cannot be so easily undone.

More times than I can remember during the spring and summer, I have found myself transfixed on the television as the Mariners frittered away another lead, or were unable to muster offensive output at a decisive point in the game. But regardless of the knowledge that they are not a contender for the playoffs and never were in 2013, the emotions come out. Anger when they play poorly, frustration when things break bad, excitement and hope during even the most muted of winning streaks. But once upon a time, I was nothing more than a bandwagon fan. In the summer of 1995, it was the Atlanta Braves who tugged my heartstrings come October. I followed my former hometown team as much as I could from the Pacific Northwest, even as I watched the Mariners come into their own with a group we now know included no fewer than two future Hall of Famers and a defining season for the franchise. It was also the season that made my Mariners' fandom forever. The general rule is a simple one for me when it comes to bandwagon fans: you can only get as excited during the good times as you do upset during the bad. That's why those of us who have been disappointed for as long as we can remember can't wait for 2013 to begin.

or most sports fans there are few things more irksome than bandwagon jumpers. Whether it is hopping on with the shiniest college football team from half a country away, or pledging allegiance to a professional team because of a superstar player or enticing color scheme, marketing and broadcasting have created a sports world where fandom is fluid. And when it comes to our Seahawks, not only one of the trendy picks to make a run to Super Bowl XLVII at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey but also the team that has more than any other come to define the collective sports passion in Seattle, the bandwagon's capacity is being pushed to its limits. From the casual fan getting in the spirit a little earlier than usual to the die-hard Josh Suman who hasn't taken a day off from following the Hawks since the season ended so miserably in the Georgia Dome in January, the excitement toward the franchise has been palpable. But be warned, newcomers, true fans know the ticket onto the Seahawks' express is good for one-way only use. Once you become part of the 12th Man, leaving means forever. Of course, it is impossible to tell another individual how they feel about a team. Some fans believe the only mission of those in the stands is to unabashedly cheer at every turn, not taking into account the machinations and behind-the-scenes dealings that help shape the on-field product. Others come from the opposite side of the spectrum, viewing themselves as a realtime mirror for the organization to view itself and its shortcomings (usually yelling something like, "I paid for my seat, I can say

State’s housing market strengthens in 2nd quarter Washington state's housing market continued to advance in the April-June quarter, with four consecutive monthly improvements in home sales activity. Median home prices rose statewide while home affordability dipped a bit, according to the Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies at the University of Washington. Existing home sales during the second quarter of 2013 increased 5.4 percent from the first quarter, and 21 percent from a year ago, reaching a seasonally adjusted annual sale rate of 93,280 homes. That means that if the pace for the quarter continued unchanged for a year, that number of homes would be sold. This represents the highest sales rate in six years. "The biggest current impediment to the housing market remains a shortage of homes available for sale,” said Glenn Crellin, associate director of the center. “Construction activity is improving, but builders cannot improve availability overnight. Lenders need to release properties that have been foreclosed, but are still owned by the lender to allow the market to stabilize and prevent renewed bubble conditions." While quarter-to-quarter home sales increased in only half of Washington’s 39

counties at seasonally adjusted annual rates, strong markets in the largest urban areas pulled the statewide tally higher, Crellin said. Declines, he said, were all in smaller communities. "Stronger sales activity is encouraging some owners to put their homes on the market," said Mark Kitabayashi, president of Washington Realtors, which partners with the center to produce home sales statistics. "But in many markets listings are so scarce, buyers don’t have time to see many properties before making an offer — and well-priced, move-in-ready homes sell very quickly, often with multiple offers." The imbalance between limited supply and strong demand resulted in a median price of $251,100 during the quarter, an increase of 6.4 percent compared with a year ago. The Seattle metropolitan area saw especially steep increases in median prices – 14.7 percent in Snohomish County, 13.8 percent in King County and 12.5 percent in Pierce County. Meanwhile, the median price declined in the Olympia and Yakima metropolitan areas. Sales, median home prices and affordability data for each of Washington's 39 counties are available on the Runstad Center's website.

Reporter’s website gets update

Heritage Corner A look at Bellevue’s past

Voices of Bellevue: Kenneth Mingo Eastside Heritage Center’s oral history collection contains almost 200 interviews. In the following excerpt from his 1992 oral history (edited for clarity) Kenneth Mingo describes why his family decided to move to the Lake Hills area in the 1950s.

Leonard and Bell & Valdez home advertisement.

Interviewer: Why did you choose to move to Lake Hills? When did you come? And from where had you come? Kenneth Mingo: We chose to move here because I was able to get a GI loan at 4.5 percent interest rates. We started looking for a house in the end of 1956. And we looked in the city. My wife and I were both from Rainier Valley. We looked in Rainier Valley and in those days that was a diverse neighborhood, but not yet gone — I hesitate to use the word, but downhill, I guess. However, we didn’t find any houses, any used or secondhand houses, that we liked and if we had, the interest rates in the city were about 6 percent for a loan. And not everybody was loaning money. I don’t know why that was at that time. I was a greenhorn and I didn’t look into all the various details, but out here we could come buy a new house, brand new, built to somewhat our specifications, not entirely. They were all certain

styles of house. But they would make various changes in the plan. Small changes in the plan to suit the customer. And so this area was advertised highly in the paper, and we came out and took a look. I’m sure you’re aware that up at the beginning of Lake Hills Boulevard, where the model houses… Interviewer: Off 140th? Kenneth Mingo: That is 140th, yeah. And Lake Hills Boulevard contractor Leonard had four houses on one side of the street and Bell & Valdez had four houses on the other side of the street, four varied plans. 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 website for the Bellevue Reporter is getting a fresh look starting Aug. 27 that will help readers get faster access to local news — and more of it. The new crisp-and-clean design makes space for more stories and photographs on the newspaper's home page, and also offers easier access to readers on-the-go. The home page is topped by a new navigation bar which boasts a quick-glance box for current weather conditions. Also at the top: Icons for mobile applications and social media, so readers can quickly share stories and news with others. The website will continue to use the "river of news" format — with the most current content appearing at the top of the home page — though top stories will feature larger photographs, plus larger headlines and summaries. As more stories and features are published each day, older stories will carry smaller headlines and flow toward the bottom of the homepage. The box for "trending stories" — articles that are connecting with readers and being shared and read more often than other content — will also be repositioned on the home page; higher, for faster access for

readers. Online readers should notice more news on the website's front page. "We're actually fitting more content on the page than before," said Seth Long, director of digital media for Sound Publishing. Stories also will be easier to share. Underneath each story byline, readers will find options for emailing the article, printing a copy or sending a letter to the editor about the topic. At the bottom of each story page, readers also will find links to related articles, as well as trending stories. "We've improved the presentation of the story; the typography is better, it's easier to read, it's easier to find sharing tools and it's easier to find related and trending content," Long said. The website update is being launched across most of Sound Publishing's titles, though the websites for paid-access newspapers will share a slightly different makeover. It's the first update to Sound Publishing websites — which boast 2.2 million unique visitors and 11.5 million page views a month — since 2010.

Ernie Vigil and Sabel Lopez Portillo Meyer, both from Bellevue, dance Wednesday at an Aegis Living Woodstock gathering at Marymoor Park. ANDY NYSTROM, Reporter Newspapers


early opponents of the Spring District project, appealed the city’s acceptance of the development’s master plan in fall of last year. A third appeal, filed on behalf of the Lake Bellevue Village Homeowners’ Association (HOA), said the project could bring flooding, water pollution, lower water levels and property values. Though later settled, some neighbors are now banding together to make sure their voices aren’t drowned out. “When I started hearing about the Spring District development, I got the sense that it was trying to create its own community,” says Michael J. Link, a resident of the Lake Bellevue Village Condos and real estate broker for Windermere, who serves on both HOA and the Lake Bellevue Water Quality Association. “It’s like, where’s the connection? You can’t just drop yourself into the middle of the street and now have a community. We’ve had a community here for a long time…I realized that if people like myself didn’t start getting involved in creating a preferred alternative vision, this whole area would get run over.” Earlier this month the Lake Bellevue Water Quality Association and the Lake Bellevue Village Homeowners Association formed an alliance with Wright Runstad and Shorenstein Properties, agreeing to more closely monitor the environment of the lake and surrounding area while ensuring cohesion between current neighbors and future developments. The Lake Bellevue Subbasin Alliance, says Link who will serve as president, is part of the settlement agreement. But focus on the environment isn’t unique to neighborhood demands. The rezone of the Bel-Red corridor put particular emphasis on sustainable development including stream enhancements, natural drainage practices and the creation of parks and more open spaces, elements that have been incorporated into the Spring District’s plans in the form of

landscaping and pedestrian pathways. Wright Runstad representatives were not available for comment. “As a part of that settlement agreement, the developer agreed to do all stormwater regulations, runoff rules, construction hour [guidelines],” explains Link, “but on top of that will work with us closely on how to tie the community together. I think they heard us loud and clear regarding the lake and water quality. They knew that with apartments and office space up there, people will be coming down here as well.” Decades ago, as Bellevue’s skyline grew, says Link, the city’s inclination was to pave over streams and marshy environments in favor of the buildings that quickly popped up. Lake Bellevue, says Link, is natural but urban lakes degrade with time, losing their groundwater and becoming increasingly polluted. While walking one sunny day last week, he points out the milfoil at the base of the lake that clouds the water. Algae feed on phosphorous, pollutants from runoff and urbanization. “We want to get rid of that,” he said, gesturing at a shimmery streak of oil in the water below one condo. He references past projects like the daylighting of Thornton Creek in Northgate as examples of what can happen if the neighborhood advocates for itself alongside big development. The work won’t end with the Spring District either. Link says that light rail and the widening of 120th Avenue Northeast are also issues deserving of the neighborhood’s attention. “I’ve been a proponent of the development ever since I became a realtor. In all my listings I’ve been promoting it—look what will be next door [with] light rail. These are things that are huge assets to this area, if it’s done right. One goal for the alliance is in exchange for doing this development we’re putting measures in place that not only protect the lake but enhance it.”

Seattle woman dies in I-405 accident A Seattle woman was killed early Monday morning on southbound I-405 in Bellevue as she waited for help after striking a deer. Alea S. Price, 24, had struck the deer at about 4:30 a.m. and called 9-1-1 several times to say she was stopped in one of the left lanes on I-405 and was waiting for help. Before a

State Patrol trooper could respond, her car was hit by a semi-trailer driven by Kulwinder Singh, 28, of Blaine. Singh was not injured and was released at the scene. The roadway was blocked for more than three hours and caused a two-mile backup as officials investigated the scene.

Advanced Placement offered at all high schools in Bellevue School District Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered at every high school in the Bellevue School District, with all students in grades 9-12 encouraged to take the rigorous, college-level classes. Students choose from a wide variety of courses, such as English, U.S. History, psychology, calculus, Chinese, Spanish, music theory or art history. Most Bellevue students take at least one AP class during their high school career. In fact, 91 percent of the Class of 2013 graduated with at least one AP course on their transcript. Of those who took AP, 2013 grads earned an average of six AP credits each that they can take with them to college. Last spring, Bellevue students took more than 6,800 AP exams. The district’s overall AP exam pass rate for 2013 is 73 percent, up from 70 percent a year ago. By compari-

son, the most recent national pass rate is 59 percent. While Bellevue students continue to do well in all subjects, this year’s pass rates in AP Biology and AP Chemistry saw some of the biggest gains. The success of Bellevue students on AP exams is also the result of hard work by the Bellevue teachers of these demanding courses. Each summer, Bellevue teachers have the opportunity to attend the Pacific Northwest annual AP Institute, free of charge. This professional development opportunity is facilitated by the district and attended by teachers from across the nation. The Institute offers teachers training, strategies and support for teaching AP courses. The sessions are led by nationally-known presenters. This summer, 45 Bellevue teachers attended the intense, four-day workshop.

Bellevue house featured on tour of modern homes A Bellevue house will be featured on a tour of modern homes in and around the Seattle area on September. 7. Tour organizers say the homes feature "cutting-edge contemporary design that takes advantage of the stunning landscape." In addition to the Bellevue home, seven other homes are located in Issaquah, Seattle and Bainbridge Island. The tour will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is self-directed. Advance tickets are on sale through Friday, Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. for $30 each.Tickets purchased after that time must be purchased at any of the tour homes beginning at 11 a.m. on Sept. 7 for $40 each. Children 12 and under are free. The home was designed in 1955 by Wendell Lovett during an early phase of his career when he was heavily influenced by the Miesian idiom and the idea of using production components to create minimalist dwellings. After its construction in 1957, the home received numerous design awards and was featured in a variety of domestic and international publications. The original owners were Gervais Reed, an art history professor at the University of Washington, and his wife Connie Reed. Professor Reed personally constructed the beams for the home in the basement of the Henry Art Gallery. He passed away in 2007 and his wife continued to live in the home until she sold it to the current owners, Patrick and Courtney Stanton, in December 2012. The Stantons wanted to maintain the integrity of this iconic mid-century modern home. However, they also wanted to update the original 1950’s era kitchen. Hilltop features a circular drive and spur lanes link 40 home sites, each on one acre and most with superb views of Mount Rainier, Seattle, Lake Washington or Lake Sammamish.

Even though his team is only practicing in shells, without leg pads and not in fullcontact situations, Bellevue senior Budda Baker’s intensity doesn’t waver. A quick wiggle and he resets his feet, darting past a teammate left grasping two handfuls of air during a drill. He breaks in front of a receiver at full speed and with calculated precision during sevenon-seven, intercepting a pass and highstepping through pursuers who look like they are running through sand. But his most impressive feat has nothing to do with uncanny shiftiness, underestimated power and solid top-end speed. “If you’re not going to give 100 percent effort, get out of the drill,” he says to a teammate who has taken too much time lining up opposite him. Minutes later, he has his arm around another, explaining how he beat him on the route to come up with a circus catch. This is the growth of Budda Baker. “He’s one of the best practice players I’ve ever seen, no question,” Bellevue head

coach Butch Goncharoff said. “He has to hold other guys accountable and show them how to do it, and he’s getting better.” For most prep football programs, losing an All-American along with a cadre of other all-state players now at Division I schools would be a blueprint for rebuilding. At Bellevue, it is an opportunity. The Wolverines graduated a senior class that included players now at Washington, Washington State, Montana, Idaho and San Diego and also sent All-American and state defensive player of the year Myles Jack to UCLA (along with safety Michael Carlson) after winning the fifth straight Class 3A state title for the program, a first for a Washington prep squad in any classification. Luckily for them, Budda Baker was not among the departed. “He’s as good as anyone I’ve had, and I’ve had some good ones,” Goncharoff said of Baker, a senior garnering interest from all corners of the Division I football landscape. “The way he plays, the way he does things, it’s amazing.” SEE BELLEVUE, 17

New coach Myers giving Saints a renewed perspective in first year BY JOSH SUMAN BELLEVUE REPORTER

For the past several years, the identity of the Interlake football team has never been in doubt. In 2010 and 2011 it was pint-sized dynamo Jordan Todd slicing through defenses on his way to setting the single-season rushing record and leading his team to the 2A state playoffs and a wide-open passing attack led by quarterback Trevor Lyon last season. Before that, it was Matt Malos and Brett Kirschner creating mismatches in the running game and keeping defensive coordinators around the conference up at night. But in 2013, with its third head coach in five seasons and an untested quarterback, a new crop of playmakers will need to emerge. “We got a glimpse in the spring and we’ve got a couple really good football players,” head coach Dave Myers said on his team’s first day of fall camp. “But we’ve got to see what happens.” Finding a replacement for Lyon at quarterback is one of the most important tasks, with senior Jason Sass looking like the front-runner at signal-caller. He said Myers, who took over in the spring for Jason Rimkus after spending time at Garfield

and Lincoln, has already done wonders for his confidence, and believes his team has plenty of weapons to make some noise a year after missing the playoffs for the first time in four seasons in 2012 after the move back to Class 3A. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Sass said. SEE SAINTS, 18

August 30, 2013 [17]


Never was Baker at his amazing self more than in last year’s 35-3 title game thrashing of Eastside Catholic, when he scored touchdowns on a 71-yard punt return to break open the scoring, a 61-yard dash later in the game and added an interception for good measure. This year, without Jack and a host of other respected seniors around, he has stepped forward as a vocal leader as well. “Back then, I didn’t talk as much,” he said of his first two years. “I was a quiet guy.” The first game of Baker’s varsity prep career was the showdown with Oaks Christian in California, a game the Wolverines counted down to the entire offseason in their weight room. Bellevue ultimately won and in the process of facing a nationally ranked team with a pair of future UCLA Bruins in Jordan Payton and Ishmael Adams, Baker said he grew. “Right at kickoff, it hit me,” he recalled of the magnitude of the moment. “I thought a little too much.” His sophomore season was dotted with standout performances, including a two-

interception game of All-American Jeff Lindquist of Mercer Island and now the University of Washington and a kickoff return score against O’Dea in the title game. His junior campaign sent his recruiting stock soaring and kept opposing coaches searching for answers. He started the year with an overtime touchdown in the win over Euless-Trinity (Texas), scored a pair of defensive touchdowns in the first half against secondranked Mount Si and added another score on offense before the break as the Wolverines steamrolled to a 49-10 win in the regular season, and anchored the back end of a defense that allowed only one touchdown to a Washington opponent all season. “If there’s a better player in the state, I don’t know who it is,” Goncharoff said. His task this year changes little on Friday nights, as Bellevue will look to him to provide a weapon on both sides of the ball as well as in the return game. But Saturday through Thursday, when the emotions and challenges of a season arise, teammates know they have an experienced voice. “Budda is a great leader on the field,” said senior Max Richmond, who along with Baker will try to defend the school’s 400 meter relay title on the track during the spring. “He is a great role model.”

Sammamish is hoping to regain its footing in its second year in Class 2A, a year after going winless. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter

Underdog Totems still fighting uphill battle in rough KingCo Two weeks before fall camp opens is never a good time for a head coach to receive breaking news about his football program. So when Sammamish head man Brian Tucci was told his team would have to open the year at Bellevue’s International School and its ad hoc football field instead of the newly-surfaced on-campus home the Totems opened just last season, his reaction was predictable. Luckily for him, so was that of his players. “It has been amazing,” Tucci said. “We’ve had more kids committed this year than in any year past.” After being told the school’s weight room would not be available during the summer because of the $125 million renovation taking place, Tucci’s team took to local gyms and trained at their homes instead. When the team resumed weekly conditioning, a

group of around two dozen was regularly on-hand. “It’s continued to grow and evolve,” Tucci said. “That is the best thing about it: seeing that corps group of kids expand each year.” The Totems struggled to a mostly forgettable season in 2012, going winless and allowing more than 30 points in all but one game, a 28-0 loss to rival Interlake. Sammamish surrendered 50 or more points all but three times. After spending 2012 admittedly searching for moral victories to keep his team invested during an immensely difficult campaign, Tucci hopes 2013 can revolve around more tangible evidence of success. “Last year was a lot of mental victories, making improvements,” Tucci said. “We’re challenging the kids now.” With all but a few of its regular starters SEE TOTEMS, 18

Senior quarterback Jason Sass will be one of the keys for Interlake on offense, and said he is playing with a renewed confidence in 2013. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter


The Saints managed only three wins in 2012, dropping Redmond and Lakeside in non-conference games and beating their Crossroads Cup rivals from Sammamish 28-0, the sixth straight win in the series. But with a new regime in place and the optimism and excitement that come with, Interlake players and coaches are hoping to become a perennial threat to the league’s blue bloods. “We have the talent to win some games,”

Sass said. “We just want to get to the season.” When the season does arrive September 6 against Issaquah, Myers will have to hope the offense can gain more traction than it did last year, when Interlake scored fewer than 14 points on six occasions. After the opener against Issaquah, it will be their former head coach and his new squad at Redmond coming for a visit, a game the Saints won 29-15 under Rimkus a year ago and one they certainly have in mind this time around. “We’re all drooling for Week 2 against Redmond,” Sass said.


returning in 2013, the Totems are hoping the experiences of a painful 2012 spurn growth this year. “We’re just looking for that experience and knowledge from the past years to pay dividends,” he said. “The biggest thing is that continued growth.” If his team is able to make strides on the field, it won’t be an illusion. Sammamish will face an identical schedule to its 2012 slate, with non-conference games against 2A Cedarcrest and Franklin Pierce preceding a run through 3A KingCo, where it will once again be one of two 2A classified schools, along with Lake Washington. Junior lineman Jordan Sanders, an allconference honorable mention selection in 2012, said the most pressing task for this year’s squad is to create an identity of belief. “We’re moving forward, leaving what is in the past behind,” he said. “We’re moving on.” On the offensive side of the ball, Tucci said he believes another year of seasoning could make all the difference for senior quarterback Terrence Allen, who will lead a group that scored only 13 points combined in seven conference games last season and was shutout five times against KingCo opponents. “We want to start measuring ourselves with the competition,” Tucci said.

Coaches will look for senior Terrence Allen to take control of the offense in his second year as a starter. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter

Newport senior running back Conner Baumann has made a name for himself as a hardnosed runner around 4A KingCo as a sophomore and junior, and returns for a final run with the Knights. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter in Spokane. Baumann returns as the team’s leading rusher after posting 1,338 yards (more than 10 per carry) and tallying 14 touchdowns on the ground last year and according to teammates has been getting plenty of help from Paul Wells thus far in camp, after he scored four touchdowns rushing in 2012. Miller said after gaining confidence throughout his junior year in 2012 and becoming the team’s workhorse in the ground game, Baumann is anything but satisfied. “He realized how good he is, and how good he can be,” Miller said. “He still wants to get better.” The quarterback competition is between juniors Jordan Sandberg and J.P. Routen and Miller said while it has never been his preference in nearly two decades at Newport to rotate

quarterbacks, that possibility remains open this year. “Right now, they are neck-and-neck,” he said of the competition. “We might go in playing both.” Whomever ultimately becomes the full-time starter at quarterback will likely spend plenty of time handing off to Baumann and targeting Sample, who caught a team-high five touchdowns last year. Taking the reins at quarterback will also come with the added responsibility in the huddle, and Miller said he has confidence not only in the two players competing to replace Dotson, but also a senior class that has seen its share of ups and downs during the previous three years. From a state appearance in 2010 to a difficult 2011 that included the passing of longtime coach Tim Driver before a game, and a 2012 season that pro-

duced another trip to state, this year’s group of seniors have experienced the entire spectrum of emotions. “I’m hoping we get four or five guys who can step up and be that guy, it doesn’t need to be one guy,” Miller said. “I’ve talked to these guys about how important that is.”

For Newport head football coach Mike Miller, the feeling is an unfamiliar one. Since Miller inserted now-graduated quarterback Isaac Dotson into the starting lineup during his freshman season in 2009, that spot on the depth chart has not changed. But this season, with Dotson a Washington State Cougar and the Knights looking to make another playoff push in 4A KingCo, Miller once again needs to find a new triggerman for the offense. “That is the question in everyone’s mind,” Miller acknowledged. “Losing him is huge and those are some big shoes someone has to fill, and naturally that has left a lot of question marks.” As much as Dotson mattered to the Knights on the field, to the tune of more than 1,800 yards and 28 touchdowns rushing and passing, he was even more important in the locker room and as a field general, where Miller said he simply stood alone. “I have never had a kid like that, where I just trusted him beyond measure,” Miller said. “We’re going to miss that.” It will be a collective effort to replace the leadership void, and a host of underclassmen vying for the job under center. Junior lineman Calvin Throckmorton, a 6-foot-6, 260 pound earth mover, along with seniors Drew Sample and Connor Baumann headline a group that hopes to make it backto-back state tournament appearances after Newport reached the first round of the state playoffs last year before a 41-14 loss to Mead

Police offer safety tips as schools resume With kids headed back to the classrooms on Sept. 3, the Bellevue Police Department is advising motorists to watch for and obey the yellow flashing school-zone lights near elementary schools. The speed limit is reduced to 20 mph when the lights are flashing. In other school zones, the lower speed limit is in effect “when children are present,” police say, so motorists should be prepared to slow down. The City of Bellevue’s photo enforcement cameras will be operating during school hours in two school zones: ■ Northeast Eighth Street and 143rd Avenue Northeast near Stevenson Elementary School ■ Southeast Eighth Street band 143rd Place Southeast near Lake

Hills Elementary School Upcoming construction at Bennett, Cherry Crest and Cougar Ridge elementary schools will upgrade the school zone signing to yellow flashing beacons, bringing the total number of elementary schools in Bellevue with flashing beacons to 14. In addition to the photo enforcement cameras, officers regularly enforce the school zone speed limits. “The purpose of the enforcement is to enhance driver awareness and improve voluntary compliance with the school zone speed limit, increasing the safety of the children who are present,” said Capt. Denny Bronson. In addition, the department offered a number of safety tips:

■ Slowdown in school zones ■ Pay attention while driving; don’t be distracted by using electronic devices or cell phones ■ When the beacons are flashing or children are present, the speed limit is 20 mph ■ Yield the right away to pedestrians and children getting on and off the school buses ■ Remember to be aware of your surroundings while turning or changing lanes ■ Stop completely at intersections ■ Pedestrians should use crosswalks and cross with the crossing sign ■ Closely supervise your children as they walk to and from your vehicle or school

Students need vaccinations to start school The state of Washington mandates that each student has received the required vaccinations to attend school. In addition to the immunizations needed to attend elementary school, incoming sixth graders will need to have a Tdap. The Tdap cannot be given until a child turns 11-years-old. There is a 30-day grace period from the date of a child's birthday for children who do not turn 11 until after the school year begins.

If parents choose to exercise the option for an immunization exemption, the requirements changed in July 2011. A certificate of exemption must be signed by an MD/ARNP for personal, philosophical or medical reasons. Students may not start school on Sept. 4 without the required immunizations.
