LWSD board approves allocating funds for pool City to partner with LWSD to explore options to replace JHS pool BY RAECHEL DAWSON

The Kirkland City Council unanimously voted on Tuesday to partner with the Lake Washington School District to explore options for replacing the Juanita Aquatic Center at Juanita High School by 2017. The Council amended the 2013-14 work program with the passing of Resolution R-5003 about a week after the Lake Washington School District board solidified their commitment toward a pool partnership. On Sept. 9, the school board unanimously passed a resolution (Resolution No. 2166) that will allocate funds from a 2008 capital bond measure to go toward a new swimming pool if the current bond measure passes in February 2014. The current district bond measure includes

$755 million in funding for the modernization of Juanita High School and many other schools, but excludes funding for replacement of the high school’s pool– the Juanita Aquatic Center. However, school board members agreed to redirect unspent phase-two modernization dollars “to fund a portion of pool projects, which will enable use by high school swim and dive teams for practice and competition,” Resolution No. 2166 states. District spokeswoman Kathryn Reith said the remaining funds from the 2008 bond measure for phase-two modernization could be between $10$12 million, adding not all of the funds would go toward a potential pool partnership. If the February bond does not pass, leftover phase-two modernization funds would go toward additional portables and other temporary student housing within s chools instead. The issue was brought to the Council’s attention after several concerned [ more POOL page 3 ]

ick Mix of Willard’s Pest Control in Kirkland has never seen a bedbug infestation as bad as the one he encountered at a Kirkland town house. “The kitchen cabinets, all the dishes and pots and pans had bedbugs in them,” Mix said. “The coffee maker, the microwave was full of them, the TV was full of them just everything. Pictures on the walls … you’d take the picture frame off the wall and

there would be an outline of bedbugs. It was horrible.” Mix, along with nine of his employees from Willard’s Pest Control, spent the morning of Sept. 8, a Sunday, voluntarily throwing out furniture, appliances and other household products at a Kirkland woman’s Juanita town house. They suited up in hazmat-like Tyvek suits, were given a large dumpster and got to work with the caveat they would be done in time for the morning’s Seahawks’ game. It was all done for free.

Mix estimates at least $3,000 was easily put into this job, which isn’t finished yet. “Sometimes it’s just good to do good things for people,” Mix said. “… I just like to think of my parents, they live back in Ohio, that if they needed something sometime, maybe someone would do something nice for them.” Only a few hardwood tables and chairs could be salvaged. Mix got a call in August from a woman named Kathy Finney with Miller Laine Properties, a real estate com-

pany in Bellevue that works with distressed properties. Finney said her friend, the resident of the town house, was in the hospital, and state, county and city organizations didn’t have the money to fumigate the woman’s house. “I was really pleased with how Willard’s stepped up to the plate and helped this lady so she wouldn’t end up on the street,” Finney said. Finney said she was good friends with the woman’s mother and when her mother passed away, the woman [ more BEDBUGS page 3 ]

Trial begins for woman charged with vehicular homicide BY RAECHEL DAWSON

More than one year after a DUI incident that left a Kirkland woman dead and others injured, a King County Superior Court judge set Kirkland resident Kelly Ann Hudson’s trial date to

Sept. 16. Hudson, who is in her early 40s, was charged with one count of vehicular homicide and three counts of vehicular assault in the Aug. 7, 2012 head-on-collision that killed Kirkland resident Joyce Parsons, 81, and injured three others –

Parson’s brother Arthur Kamm, and two other family members Jenny Grieshaber and Daniel J. Grieshaber. Judge Ronald Kessler granted a request from Hudson’s attorney Scott E. Wonder of Goddard Wetherall Wonder PSC to delay the trial, origi-

nally set for Sept. 11, due to his temporary hearing loss from a ruptured eardrum, ear infection and other ailments. Hudson, who was initially held on a $500,000 bail, pleaded “absolutely not guilty” to the four counts on Aug. 23, [ more TRIAL page 6 ]

September 20, 2013 [3] citizens testified in favor of a pool partnership. Throughout the summer, thousands of passionate students, swimmers and families rallied against the district’s proposed bond via their community Facebook page, “Save Juanita Pool.” Many were concerned that if the pool wasn’t included in the upcoming bond, they would permanently lose their chance at a year-round public pool in Kirkland, which is what the Juanita Aquatic Center provides. Because the bond does not include pool replacement, the district has indicated Juanita High School could lose their pool as early as 2017 when construction is likely to begin on expanding Juanita High School. At a school board meeting on Aug. 5, about 50 student swimmers and family members wearing orange filled the board room to attempt to persuade board members to rethink the proposed bond measure. Nearly all five school

The resident, who is a senior, was disabled and police said they found her in her garage having not eaten for a number of weeks. They also found the bedbug infestation and the woman was taken to EvergreenHealth Medical Center to be quarantined for a myriad of bedbug bites. She is also believed to have other medical issues. Mix said bedbugs are so tiny they are able to fit inside the stitching on a box-spring mattress and when people lay down, the body heat and carbon dioxide alert the bugs it’s time to come out and feed. “This poor woman had to have … I can’t begin to guess what she had feeding on her every night,” Mix said. However, Finney says she is doing much better now. “She just found herself in a situation where she didn’t know what to do,” Finney said, adding the woman was intelligent and is a University of Washington graduate. “I stepped up because people were taking advantage of her.” Mix estimates the home slowly became infested

board members were saddened by the loss of the pool but cited lack of funds as a driving force behind their unanimous vote. But board members told the crowd to go home and wash their orange shirts that evening because they would need them again the next night during a Kirkland City Council meeting. According to city documents, citizen testimony asked the city to consider participating in building a new aquatic center because the current pool is the only public year-round aquatic facility in Kirkland. Residents and youth currently use the pool for swim lessons, fitness, recreation among the 300 student swimmers and divers within the Lake Washington School District. City staff estimated the initial project budget would range between $125,000 and $200,000 for securing a project management contract, a design consultant, and analysis of potential sites, among other expenses.

You can get these things anywhere,” he said. “Any place where there’s a group of people - college dorms are a big problem, hospitals, public housing, homeless shelters, condominium complexes, apartments.” Finney said she believes the woman lost some money, but wouldn’t go into detail as she could not confirm her suspicions. “Sometimes people get down and out and they can’t help it,” Finney said. “Who knows what goes on in somebody’s heart and mind.” Finney said the woman is very appreciative of Willard’s Pest Control and that she continues to visit the woman so she doesn’t lose hope. Finney is currently working with an investor to purchase the town house once pest control remediation is complete.

Ben & Jerry’s cofounder dishes out support for I-522 Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Jerry Greenfield was in Kirkland on Sept. 14 to dish out free scoops of ice cream - and support for Initiative 522. The Washington ballot measure would give grocery shoppers more information about the groceries they are buying and eating. “Sourcing ingredients, perfecting formulas and updating packaging are tasks food producers handle on a regular basis,” Greenfield said. “So to those who say this can’t be done, that it’s too complicated, or too expensive - we wholeheartedly disagree. Ben & Jerry’s is proof. Supporting the I–522 initiative to label is doable at virtually no extra cost within the regular scope of business.” During his visit to Kirkland, he stopped at Juanita Bay Park to give out free scoops of ice cream. He was also at the Kirkland Ben & Jerry’s to promote I-522.

Juanita Bumblebees win championship The Juanita Bumblebees recently won the Girls U11 championship in the Puyallup Valley Kickoff Tournament over Labor Day weekend.

The Bees outscored opponents 22-1, winning all four games they played and taking the championship game with a 2-0 shutout victory over the Puyallup Wildcats. The Bees are a local team of fifth grade girls who play in the Lake Washington Soccer Association. After opening the tourney with 11-0 and 8-1 victories over the RSA Stingers and Fusion Soccer clubs, the Bees won their final pool game 1-0 when River Mahler drove home a deep throw-in from Mackenzie Burke. In the championship match, Natalie Rinker struck first, finding the back of the net with a laser from the left side. Mahler completed the scoring by converting a free kick from beyond the goal box late in the first half. Keepers Natalie Ferrara, Natalie Rinker and Lexi Durbin did an outstanding job in goal the entire weekend, stopping almost everything that came their way. In a fantastic team effort on offense, 10 different Bees scored in the tournament, lead by Rinker (5), Emily Nikolai (4), Burke (3) and Mahler (3).

Why America should not make a military strike on Syria


Josef Benzaoui

am a 16-year-old American male teenager who is a senior at the International Community School in Kirkland. I write this in the comfort of my suburban home near Lake Sammamish in Redmond. I live with both my parents and my brother. All I have to do is show up to school, do my homework and stay out of trouble. In return, I lead a sheltered life and have everything I could need. Why should I care whether America makes a military strike in Syria? If the United States decides to attack, much of the world would view it as a direct violation of international law, as the Charter of the United Nations only allows the use of force in two cases. One, in the case of self defense in the face of an imminent attack, and two, in the case of a threat to international peace. The international response to an attack would be highly critical and result in unpredictable global tensions. If the United States continues forward, Russia has made it clear that it has a drastic response prepared. But, most importantly, an attack on Syria would personally effect my life. To the average eye, I am just another American, but on the inside I’m split, right down the middle. My mother is American. Her family goes back more than a century in the state of Washington. My dad is Arabic. He grew up in Algeria and attended the University of Geneva, where he met my mother. Now I live here, as a cultural dichotomy spliced together as one human. My grandmother on my mom’s side lives in Sammamish. Everyone on my dad’s side lives halfway across the world on a separate continent. I’ve

always wanted to visit, but my parents have always been hesitant because of the split between Western and Eastern cultures. My first thought when entering another country should not be that the people who live there look upon me with disgust because of the actions my country chose to make, actions that brought harm to their people and their way of life. I don’t want to live in a future where one part of my culture, my own family, despises the other. This should not be my fate, but it is currently the reality of present day, and will also be my future if America chooses to strike Syria. I believe that America should restrain its hand from entering the Syrian civil war. It is a conflict taking place in land outside of its own, in a culture its own people do not fully understand. As a teen, this decision has no effect on me,

for now. The decisions our country make now in regard to Syria could potentially light up an area doused in gasoline, and my generation would be left to put out the flames. The international response to a U.S. military strike in Syria from countries like Iran and Russia is unpredictable and would likely prove disastrous for American foreign relations. When it comes down to it, the United States is on the verge of making a huge bet, a bet that no matter how it plays out, can only guarantee one outcome - a loss. How big that loss will be is unknown, but it could very well be a loss greater than what our country can afford.

Protesters take Potala Village controversy to the street “Not Right!” “No Ultra-High Density! No Potala!” “200-Car Garage per one Driveway … No to Potala.” “Respect the Community!” “Call City Hall!” This is just a small sample of the many handmade signs greeting drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians on Lake Washington Boulevard on Friday evening. The signs carried protest messages from neighbors of the proposed Potala Village project and concerned Kirkland citizens who oppose the uniquely high-density apartment/commercial complex. The picket line of protesters dressed in red - the signature color of the hundreds-strong opposition group that sprang organically in response to Potala - stretched across the proposed site on the corner of Lake Washington Boulevard/Lake Street South and 10th Avenue South. Many drivers honked, gave a thumbs up, waved, cheered and whooped in solidarity with the protest. Cyclists also gave the thumbs up and waved as they rode along the bicycle lane in front of the project site where a single driveway to accommodate a 200-plus car garage is proposed – which, obviously, would be rife with unnecessary danger for all modes of travel along the boulevard.

Cyclists would be especially vulnerable. Walkers who wanted to learn more about Potala chatted with protesters, picked up fliers about the project, and many gave encouragement and expressed solid agreement with opposition to Potala. While opposing the singular Potala Village project, many picketers are pro-development. They support sensible development that is compatible with its location – not the 194,000-squarefoot “big box” structure proposed for Potala, which is just plain too big and clearly “out of whack” for the middle of Lake Washington Boulevard. The first Potala picket was a success in bringing the community together and further raising awareness of the project that, four years after starting talks with the City Planning Department, still does not have a building permit, has flouted zoning regulations from the get-go and has been plagued by court cases and hearings – many still pending. Not to mention massive community objection to what it believes would be a blight on Kirkland’s waterfront. Developers Lobsang Dargey and Tamara Agassi Dargey have continued to experience almost unanimous community opposition to their proposed project, as well as public statements by some Kirkland City Council members that they never intended to have a project of this mammoth scale on Lake Washington Boulevard. Potala Village is not the right project for Kirkland’s waterfront. The struggle continues. Stay

Is Potala developer using sleight of hand with building plans? Sleight of hand, or léger de main, is the set of techniques used to manipulate objects secretly. Advanced sleight of hand can be performed proficiently in front of others. There are hundreds of different sleights but they can generally be classified into groups such as switches or changes. A well-performed sleight looks like an ordinary, natural and completely innocent gesture, change, position or posture. Misdirection is perhaps the most important component of the art of sleight of hand. Techniques are employed so that observers are likely to look where they are guided. More importantly, the techniques distract and prevent observation or review of those items being secretly manipulated. So here’s the question that I’m posing with this letter. Is the building application for the project at 10th Avenue South and Lake Street South straightforward, easy to interpret and fully compliant with zoning codes? Or are there areas where codes seem to be subject to some pretty rigorous manipulation?

Logging truck tips over on 405 BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ


fully loaded logging truck tipped over on an Interstate 405 ramp in Kirkland Sept. 11 and blocked several lanes of traffic for hours. The incident happened at 9:46 a.m. on northbound I-405 at Northeast 160th Street in Kirkland, near Bothell. A Kenworth Tractor’s load shifted, pushed a barrier and logs rolled into the right lane. A 63-year-old Lake Tapps driver struck

one of the logs and was transported to EvergreenHealth Medical Center with injuries, according to a Washington State Patrol report. The 43-year-old Lynnwood driver of the truck was also injured and transported to EvergreenHealth. All lanes other than the HOV lane remained closed for several hours as crews worked to clean up the spill. State Patrol said drugs or alcohol were not involved in the incident, which is currently under investigation.

Washington State Patrol, the Kirkland Fire Department and other agencies assess the scene of an accident on Sept. 11, when a fully loaded logging truck tipped over on Interstate 405 in Kirkland and injured two drivers. RAECHEL DAWSON, Kirkland Reporter

City to purchase generators for potential emergency shelters BY RAECHEL DAWSON

Kirkland city officials are working toward securing two portable generators for two places that could be used as shelters during emergencies. The partnership between the city and Northwest University and Saint John Vianney Church in Kirkland is part of a grant project that will provide two portable emergency power generators to the facilities, thus acting as potential community centers and gathering points for residents in the event of a disaster. “Purchasing these two transfer switches, along with two portable generators, will give the city the flexibility to activate additional shelters and recovery sites in the

most appropriate locations,” to put them in.” a Sept. 3 city staff memo said. The generators were about “With portable generators, $85,860 - within price range. after a disaster the city can Pointer Electric submitted more effectively support the only bid for the transfer the health and safety of our switch project for a total of citizens.” $53,696 - $1,596 more than The Kirkland the amount allotted.

2012 at King County Superior Court. Judge Kessler allowed Wonder to shield her from media photography by holding a white poster board in front of face and torso during the arraignment. On a reduced bond, Hudson was freed from jail on Sept. 11, 2012 but was ordered to submit to a weekly urine test, wear an alcohol detection bracelet and could not take non-prescribed drugs as a condition of her release. Hudson is barred from driving any type of motor vehicle or from going to any business where alcohol is served or sold.

However, Ahrens-Byington said places aren’t publicly designated as emergency shelters because no one ever knows where a disaster could strike. “We’re never quite sure where the need will be or where the damage will be so you can’t really designate a site for a shelter before the incident itself,” AhrensByington said. “We want to get places checked off and registered before the disaster happens.” Instead, Henderson suggests these places would act as information centers for scenarios such as a big power outage, and would only be opened as emergency shelters if Red Cross deems them so. “[Shelters] have to meet the Red Cross requirements because they take a great

The evening of Aug. 7, 2012 Hudson was allegedly traveling south in a blue minivan on Juanita Drive when a woman in a car following her called 911 to report Hudson’s erratic driving and failure to stop at a stop sign. While on the phone with dispatch, the woman witnessed Hudson cross the center line “as though to pass traffic” and hit a silver Toyota Prius head-on, according to charging documents. The crash occurred near Fire Station 25 in Kirkland and firefighters were first on the scene. Three people in separate cars behind the Prius, and a second car behind the minivan, also witnessed the crash, the documents continued.

deal of staffing,” Henderson said. “You don’t just open the doors; it has to be staffed and monitored.” Henderson added that many people in the Parks Department are trained to be shelter workers. Red Cross spokeswoman Rachel Ramey said the organization doesn’t disclose the locations of designated emergency shelters unless there’s an emergency so that they can maintain their clients’ privacy. Ramey further explained that if there was an apartment fire and many were displaced, those tenants would have access to a specific shelter where they could go, but that information wouldn’t be made public. However, she said if a huge earthquake were to take

place, that type of information would likely be distributed to the media and other public avenues for information. Ramey said she was unable to disclose how many emergency shelters were designated in Kirkland but said there were “several” as well as many throughout Western Washington in case of such a disaster. Ahrens-Byington said although these places could act as community resources, the expectation is people are ready and prepared for longterm power outages, typically for three days. Some tips for preparedness include: Make a plan, build a kit and help each other. For information on how to prepare for a disaster, visit

Emergency personnel had to cut open the Prius, which was completely off the roadway, to get the victims out of the vehicle. Parsons, who was sitting behind Kamm, died on scene, court documents state. When officers approached the blue minivan to question Hudson, they noticed signs of intoxication, including the smell of alcohol on her breath, droopy, watery, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, the documents continued. Hudson allegedly told officers that prior to driving she had taken anti-anxiety medication with wine, according to police documents.

losing weight. Ways of increasing testosterone naturally include lifting free weights heavy enough that you can only manage about eight reps, resting one minute in between and then repeating three times. Also, sleeping at least eight hours per night is an important way to boost testosterone because testosterone and growth hormone are produced during hours seven through nine of sleep. Levels of testosterone are generally the highest in the morning. High levels of stress can inhibit testosterone in men. Cortisol can interfere with the way testosterone binds to its receptors, making it less effective. Sometimes men produce the right amount of testosterone but it gets converted to other hormones. When testosterone converts to the stronger form of dihydrotestosterone, it increases the chances of men developing male-pattern baldness and benign prostatic hyperplasia. Having your testosterone levels checked by your doctor is the first step to see if your

hormone levels have declined with age. It is a simple blood test that can be performed by a medical or naturopathic doctor. Once the levels are established and if there is a deficiency, your doctor can prescribe some testosterone to restore your physiological levels back to that of a younger man. Eating a varied diet with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits that are low in bad fats and sugar, getting adequate amounts of nutrients - including vitamin D - regular exercise, proper amounts of sleep, and stress-reducing activities are key to improving overall health and helping men to feel young again. Hormone replacement therapy for men can increase levels of testosterone back to levels of a younger man, giving men an overall improved sense of well being, better sleep, increased sex drive and the ability to build lean muscle mass and lose belly fat more easily.

ecently testosterone has been getting a generous amount of media attention. You may be wondering what all the hype is about? Simply put, testosterone is a hormone. Testosterone is an important part of a man’s overall health. Testosterone is the main sex hormone for men and is produced in the testicles. Testosterone can help maintain bone density, lean body mass, muscle strength, red blood cell production, sex drive and sperm production. Levels can fall with age, resulting in symptoms such as hair loss, erectile dysfunction, low sex drive, difficulty concentrating, memory impairment, insomnia and muscle loss. You may have heard the term “andropause.” Andropause refers to the decline of hormones with age for men, similarly as women go through menopause. Testosterone plays a large role in the formation of lean body mass. Some men may have noticed a little more body fat developing around their midsection, or difficulty

...healthy living In an effort to make our community healthier, HealthSource of Kirkland has chosen to recognize National Cholesterol Education Month by offering a free health check throughout the month of September. The health check includes a blood pressure check, a Body Mass Index (BMI) analysis, postural analysis, and the “HealthSource Simple Steps to Lower Your Cholesterol and Weight” booklet. HealthSource CEO Dr. Chris Tomshack said the goal of the health checks is to build better health awareness throughout the country.

“Unfortunately, many of us still rely on what we see in the mirror as an effective indicator of health,” he said. “We hope the health checks will provide a comprehensive view of what’s actually going on inside the body — where it really counts.” The offer is good through September for both new and current patients at the HealthSource of Kirkland office located at 13021 NE 85th St., Kirkland. For more information, contact HealthSource of Kirkland at (425) 827-0422.

Volunteers complete new stairs in 2 local parks BY KAREN STORY Special to the Reporter


orkirk resident Brian Scott has been walking the paths and trails in

Kirkland his whole life. He called the treacherous steps in Cotton Hill Park “the clunky stairs.” Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, Rick and Lisa Altig (who chose

to fund the stair project in lieu of building a sidewalk in front of their house), and city support, the stairs are clunky no more. The steep, slippery

trails on the south side of Crestwoods Park and the north side of Cotton Hill Park were replaced with real stairs. School kids, walkers and joggers will now be able to safely use the trails year-round. (Crestwoods stair runners take note: you can now run a series of three stairways instead of one. See a suggested route at the end of this article.) More than a dozen volunteers from five Kirkland neighborhoods worked on the 10-week project, often putting in six- to eight-hour days digging and drilling, hauling timbers and gravel, pounding rebar and cutting brush. The Crestwoods stairs were completed on July 17. On Sept. 11, volunteers pounded the final piece of rebar in the Cotton Hill Park stairs. The new stairs provide missing links connecting Crestwoods and Cotton Hill Parks to the Cross Kirkand Corridor and other nearby parks, allowing residents to walk for miles through nearlyuninterrupted green spaces. A huge thank you to the volunteers who helped with the project (please forgive me if I’ve inadvertently left
