Car crashes into Kenmore home, causes gas scare



eff Fjelstul was enjoying the evening with his family on Monday at their Kenmore home when the trauma class which he took just two weeks ago became very useful. “We were just kind of doing our evening routine, washing dishes and I was

writing, when I heard a big crash,” said Fjelstul, who lives in the 19000 block of 67th Ave. NE. “The front end of a car was in our [recreation] room - and we hadn’t ordered one.” Fjelstul could joke about it early Tuesday morning while waiting for his insurance adjuster but the incident was anything but funny Monday night. A woman had driven

straight into his home. Fjelstul noticed the car destroyed his natural gas meter as gas began filling his home. “I saw what I thought was smoke coming from the car,” he said. “I envisioned a mushroom cloud over Kenmore.” One specific lesson from his trauma class kicked in secure the scene first. “I ran inside and cut the

power to the house and my wife called 911,” he said. That quick thinking may have saved his home, and possibly the neighborhood, as the uninterrupted gas line filled the cool night air with natural gas. Fjelstul got his family and pets out of the home and opened all the doors and windows to let the gas out. [ more CRASH page 3 ]

Residents struggle with water damage

Two water main breaks in a week wreak havoc


Work crews dig up parts of 81st Place NE in Kenmore to fix water damage from two water main breaks in one week. The Northshore Utility District expects the cost for repairs to the road to be around $500,000. MATT PHELPS, Kenmore Reporter

Some of the asphalt covering 81st Place Northeast looked more like waves on the surface of Puget Sound last week. The street and surrounding neighbors endured the second water main break in a week on Sept. 5. “It literally raised the road,” said Terri Davis, whose backyard and crawl space were flooded. “My reaction was ‘holy crap’ at the amount of [ more WATER page 3 ]

Smith murder trial postponed until at least December

The murder trial for a Bothell resident that was set to begin Sept. 13 was postponed until at least December. Lawyers for Alan Justin Smith asked a judge to push back his murder trial

during an Omnibus hearing on Sept. 12 in Snohomish County Superior Court. The scheduled start to the trail was canceled and another Omnibus hearing was scheduled for Dec. 6, with a new trail date of Dec. 20. “The defense was fairly candid that they won’t be

ready until sometime next year,” said Senior Snohomish County Deputy Prosecutor Craig Matheson. Smith, who pled not guilty in July, is accused of killing his estranged wife last February and sits in the Snohomish County Jail on $1 million bail. “That trial date (Dec.

20) is not going to occur,” said Matheson. “It was just a placeholder so that we can actually pick a meaningful date next time around.” Alan Smith is accused of murdering Susann Smith, who was found on Feb. 12, face down, beaten and drown to death in the

bathtub of her Bothell home while her two kids were away, according to court documents. She had defensive wounds on her hands and arms, a fractured skull, and 19 separate blunt force strikes, according to court documents. She had to be identified by her dental records.

Alan Smith moved back into the home with his girlfriend Love Thai in April and had hopes of regaining custody of his two young children, who had been taken by Washington State Child Protective Services. Thai is now pregnant with Smith’s child. [ more MURDER page 3]

Puget Sound Energy officials, Kenmore Police, the Northshore Fire Department and King County Sheriff ’s deputies were there within minutes. “The firefighters stood off while the guys with the respirators went in and shut off the gas,” Fjelstul said. “From the time that the car hit the house until everything was cleaned up, it was just two hours. They did an amazingly fast job.” The woman driving the car told neighbors that she hit a slick spot in the road.

She was trapped in the car by a rhododendron bush. She was taken to EvergreenHealth Medical Center for observation and questioning. There were no visible skid marks on the road, Fjelstul noted. A tow truck pulled the car from his rec room. It turned out that the smoke was just steam rising from a busted radiator. Fjelstul said that his neighbors really helped his family as well. “Our kids and pets stayed at the neighbor’s last night,” he said. “We didn’t turn

the power back on until this morning and we did it slowly because there is some exposed wiring.” Even more aggravating is that the Fjelstul’s just had their home remodeled, he said. “[The rec room] is the only room my wife has finished decorating,” said Fjelstul. But he is thankful that was all that was damaged. “I was scared to death,” Fjelstul said. “I am so thankful I didn’t have to watch them put a fire out in my house.”

approximately 109 residents were affected by the incident. The water damaged several areas, including sidewalks, the Ngyun’s garage and also caused roadway failures, numerous landscape and private storm issues. Northshore Utility District General Manager Fanny Yee said that preliminary estimates for repairing the road are $500,000. “It could be higher or lower,” said Yee. “We have to cut open the asphalt in every place we can see.” The cost to homeowners is unknown. A message on the utility’s website stated: “We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Our crew is working with the city of Kenmore and Northshore Fire District. Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to restore water service to the affected customers as quickly as possible.” The first water main break took place on Aug. 29, about 50 to 100 feet to the north of the Sept. 5 break. “We have neighbors who have been gone for a week,”

a void under the pipe. “You need to have support, a good gravel bedding,” said Yee. “But we think there was some rotten vegetation or something under it.” Workers found a broken culvert across the second pipe and engineers have not made a final determination on the cause for either incident. The pipe was installed by the company that developed the area in the late 1970s and the utility is searching records to determine if there were mistakes made with the installation, Yee said. “[The breaks in the pipes] don’t look the same,” said Yee. “They are the same class of pipe and the same material.” Yee said that main breaks of this size “almost never happen.” “Most main breaks are very small,” said Yee. “And to have one this size almost never happens. It is very, very rare.” Ngyun said there was a main break in the area last year but it was because private workers hit a main during construction. Yee said that the Northshore Utility District does not

expect to have any more sink holes. “There were some sink holes the first day (Aug. 29) but they have all been filled in,” said Yee. Yee said that in all, four homes had water damage inside the residence. The most extensive damage was to Ngyun’s home. For the second time in a week Ngyun had a cleaning crew out early on the morning of Sept. 6 to clean the garage. “The homeowners are working with our insurance and the adjuster is on site,” said Yee. “We are helping [residents] clean up their yards.” Yee said that road repairs will continue through next week but replacing the pipe could take weeks. All the neighbors the Reporter talked with said that the Northshore Utility District was prompt in their response to the two events. “The Northshore Utility District called us and asked if we had any damage,” said Davis. “We had some water in our crawl space and some of the neighbor’s yard was in

our backyard but that is about it. They had the water back on within a couple of hours.” Davis said she talked to one worker who said he was pulled out of his orientation to help with the cleanup. About seven homes are located in a cul de sac on the hill above Ngyun’s home, right by the construction, and have no access other than the damaged road. One visitor at a home, who declined to give his name, was angry there were no flaggers with the work crews on the morning of Sept. 6. Yee said she was looking into that issue. “It is really noisy,” said Christine Stapp, who lives on the hill but did not have any water in her home. “The second [water main break] just happened and so far it is not that inconvenient.” Crews blocked off many areas of the road. “I am worried about when things settle and there being sink holes,” said Davis. “And what is the quality of our water going to be like? Fixing the pipes can create a lot of pressure on the system. We have a lot of concerns about more breaks in the area.”

Police were called to the home for various incidents during May, including a report of Alan Smith and Thai having sex in the front yard and for a domestic disturbance. Smith was eventually arrested in June for the murder. His sister, who has power of attorney, has subsequently put the home up for sale. The property has had multiple bids, according to the family’s real estate agent.

water and debris. It looked like there were about 18 inches of water under the road.” Davis said the road looked like it was floating on the water. Much of the water flowed downhill and into some neighbor’s homes and storm drains. It even broke one homeowner’s driveway. “(Aug. 29) we had four inches of water in our garage and this week we have five inches,” said Alex Ngyun. “We had just finished the cleanup from the first time.” The Northshore Utility District received numerous calls at about 3:50 p.m. about the water main break on Sept. 5. A 12-inch diameter water main, located on 81st Place Northeast near 161st Place Northeast, failed, according to the utility. “The district responded immediately, isolating the broken water main within minutes of being notified,” the utility said in a release. “The district currently has all available crews actively working on making the repair.” The release stated that

said Ngyun. “They were here for the first break but not (Sept. 5). They will be home tomorrow.” Ngyun said that she cried yesterday when her carpool driver called her on Sept. 5. “She said ‘Have you looked outside? There is a river and I can’t get to your house,’” said Ngyun. “I thought it was Groundhogs’ Day.” She said that the force of the water and debris was so hard that it broke the asphalt in her driveway. Ngyun said that the Northshore Utility District officials have been very professional and the homeowners are working with the insurance adjuster. “We just don’t know what is in the water and we have to throw out a lot of stuff,” said Ngyun. “We might have to replace our washer and dryer, too. I just feel so helpless. Unless we block off our driveway, how do we protect our house?” Neighbors have concerns about pressure on the system and the possibility of another break in the area. Yee said the first break may have been caused because of

The whodunit that wasn’t Y

ou can close the book on an allegation which captivated attention in the waning days of the 2012 congressional contest between Republican John Koster and Democrat Suzan DelBene. Spoiler alert: It wasn’t true. If you recall, in the heat of their duel, Koster insinuated DelBene – now the congresswoman – had given special treatment to a prominent supporter of Democratic candidates and causes while she served as director of the state Department of Revenue in 2011. Koster linked her to allegations made in a whistleblower complaint filed by a veteran employee. That worker alleged the unnamed Democratic supporter avoided paying a $2 million use tax on a personal airplane because of political favoritism. Koster repeatedly said because it happened on her watch she needed to respond to the charge. “She says millionaires ought to pay their fair share, but apparently millionaires got a break,” he said in a television interview. As Koster pushed the matter on the campaign trail throughout October, he seemed increasingly frustrated at its failure to gain much traction. “While our liberal media friends are ignoring this major scandal, we are going to continue asking questions until we get some answers,” he wrote on his campaign’s Facebook page on Oct. 23. A recent investigation found that “no reasonable cause to believe an improper governmental action occurred.” Former state auditor Brian Sonntag launched the probe soon after receiving the Jerry Cornfield

whistleblower complaint alleging the tax should have been levied, but higher-ups in the department delayed doing so until it became too late for them to legally collect it. Sonntag’s successor, Troy Kelley, a Democrat, oversaw the completion of the investigation and issued the findings Monday. “In review of the case notes and the subjects’ email, phone records and statements from witnesses and subjects, we found the Department never made the determination that use tax was owed by the taxpayer in this case,” investigators wrote. “Our investigation found no hold was placed on the case that prevented an assessment from being issued,” they concluded. “Additionally, we found no evidence that any employee of the Department intentionally delayed the case in order to allow the statutory time bar to expire.” No one is identified by name in the sevenpage report. Instead, agency employees

involved are referred to by title. Nowhere is the director mentioned. Koster, a Snohomish County councilman, was on bereavement leave and unavailable for comment, according to his staff. DelBene, who described Koster’s claim as “a baseless accusation from a desperate campaign” declined to comment on the auditor’s findings. While she said all along she had no involvement in the decision, DelBene may need to address this matter again when she seeks reelection next year. Some books are worth re-reading.

Kenmore water main break is wake-up call

The recent water main break in Kenmore should serve as a wake-up call. If taxpayers and ratepayers want to avoid unaffordable utility bills and huge liabilities in the future, they must insist now on more competition in the way public officials manage the water systems. According to a study released by the National Taxpayers Union, roughly half a trillion dollars in government expenditures could be saved over the next four decades by adopting techniques such as open procurement for pipe materials and better asset management. The Mayors Water Council of the U.S. Conference of Mayors has also voiced support for such processes. It’s time for community leaders here and across the nation to be more proactive in embracing fiscally responsible approaches to water policy.

Pete Sepp, National Taxpayers Union executive vice president, Va.

Public ignored on Syria What I find most disturbing in discussions about bombing Syria is how much the concerns and advice from the public is being ignored. The media is being very one-sided in presenting the views of the president and Congress, while only giving lip service to the views and concerns of the public, most of whom are against the U.S. getting involved in yet another conflict. I was against Bush’s war on Iraq, even going so far as to put an ad in the Reporter voicing by objections. As time has shown, I was more right about the situations than the media and politicians who started an unnecessary conflict for which we and the people of Iraq are still paying for in blood and tax dollars. Those dollars should go to resolve problems in our own country. Why are U.S. officials so obsessed with getting involved in the affairs of other countries while not dealing with our problems is what we all should be asking?

Another reason for the placement of the play area is to preserve the flat space for other types of recreation. “It just shifted it a little further down into the park,” said Connelly. “The height of the playground was also a concern for some residents. There were some who didn’t want to see the greenbelt changed and some who didn’t want to see the playground equipment.” The playground area will be approximately 1,900 square feet containing both “natural-looking” and traditional play equipment. Children ages 2-12 years of age will be able to use the playground. The city has given any construction company awarded the project 45 days,

Bothell changes management structure, Anderson to retire BY MATT PHELPS


Bothell City Manager Bob Stowe will have to take on more responsibilities as the city of Bothell reconfigures management. MATT PHELPS, Bothell Reporter services, E-gov, A Regional Coalition for Housing and will help with economic development assistance. This will be the third reorganization that Stowe has overseen as city manager; the last happened in 2008 when Anderson was hired. At that time, Anderson took much of the day-to-day administrative operations duties from Stowe so he could focus on planning. Stowe will take back a lot of those duties with the adjustment and he does not foresee the new arrangement changing in the near future. “Our revenue is not the same as in the past decade,” said Stowe. “I don’t see bringing in a third individual.” But he stresses that nothing will change with the redevelopment of downtown and that it is “right on track.” The Council approved the management reorganization during its regular meeting on Sept. 3. The new assistant city manager’s salary will range from $122,424 and $155,652 per year. The current assistant city manager range is $113,676

“We will bring it back to council later this year,” said Stowe. “But not until we have the funding.” The land slated for the new City Hall is already cleared north and east of the current building. But Stowe said that downtown redevelopment is going well. “We want to complete the Crossroads (realignment of SR 522) project before we start that,” Stowe said. “But it is on budget.” Stowe said that the project should go relatively fast once the public sees the construction as most of the timeconsuming work has been completed. “Ground has been broken on $94 million of the $115 million worth of redevelopment projects in the downtown,” said Stowe. “It is gratifying with all the hard work that everyone in the community has put in.”

Anderson was Kenmore’s first city manager Anderson’s retirement from public life is news for the entire Northshore area. He served as Kenmore’s first

and $144,540. The savings will come in the elimination of the deputy city manager’s salary, which ranged from $131,832 and $167,616. The city has hired Prothman, an executive recruitment company, to conduct the national search for a new assistant city manager. This is not the first time the city has used Prothman. “They will seek out the best individual that fits the profile of what we want in Bothell,” said Stowe. The city manager said he expects Prothman to select a pool of 15 or so applicants and then narrow it down to five to eight for city staff to choose from. The Council will not have a say in the process beyond the Sept. 3 vote as they would in a search for a city manager. The earliest a new assistant city manager could be selected is November, said Stowe. “We are not planning for it until January of 2014,” he said. The new assistant city manager will join the city as the Council and staff continue to discuss City Hall redevelopment.


he realignment of State Route 522 and multiple large-scale redevelopments make for a sense of controlled chaos and an immediate building toward Bothell’s future. But they are not the only changes taking place in Bothell. The city is reorganizing its management structure following the announced retirement earlier this year of Deputy City Manager Steve Anderson and the recent resignation of Assistant City Manager/ Economic Manager Terrie Battuello. “We had planned for the elimination of the deputy city manager position in the new budget,” said Bothell City Manager Bob Stowe. “We are responding to the current needs of the city.” The new management structure will see all of the duties of the current city manager, deputy manager and assistant city manager split into the two positions of city manager and assistant city manager. This will be the first reorganization in the last eight years to accommodate a lower number of positions based upon available resources. The biggest change for Stowe is that he will go back to having the Police and Fire departments under his direction, along with finance, legal and the executive office. The new assistant city manager will oversee the departments of Public Works, community development, human resources and information services. Stowe’s project focus will continue to be the downtown redevelopment, economic development, council and the city’s strategic big picture, while the assistant city manager will oversee tourism, courts, human

Woman airlifted to Harborview after collision with Metro bus


woman in her 50s was sent to Harborview during the rush-hour commute Sept. 10 after her car was struck by a Metro bus. The incident took place in the 5700 block of Bothell Way N.E. at the boundary between Lake Forest Park and Kenmore. The King County Sheriff ’s Office received the call just after 5 p.m. reporting the collision. “The bus was headed eastbound on Bothell Way and was fully loaded with passengers,” said King County Sheriff ’s Office spokesperson Cindi West. “The investigators said that the

woman was conscience but her injuries had to be serious.” The woman’s car was struck on the passenger side as it exited a dental clinic. According to witnesses the woman was transported to Rhododendron Park via aid car where she was air lifted via Medivac to Harborview Medical Center. The woman’s condition is unknown but West said that there

could be another reason for the need to airlift the victim. “At that time of day it would take forever to get through the traffic,” said West. She also added that bus routes were delayed up to two hours on Bothell Way as a result of the incident. None of the passengers on the bus were injured in the collision.

the azobenzene molecule changed shapes when hit with light under the guidance of professor Xiaosong Li. “It has a ton of different applications as a photo switch,” said Lacy. “(The research) has different biological applications to open and close ion channels and to control the nature of surfaces.” In addition to her work in the lab, Lacy attended the annual Amgen Scholars U.S. Symposium, where students learned about biotechnology and drug discovery development, met and networked with other Amgen Scholars and talked with leading scientists. “Last year, I was trying to decide if I should major in math or science. Through this experience, I learned there’s an intersection between the two. That’s where a lot of exciting research is happening,” said Lacy. “This opened my eyes to even more possibilities. It has helped me to solidify the next step to take.”

Vickie Kahlhe was randomly selected as the “Best of Northshore” contest winner. Kahlhe, a breast cancer survivor, received a $50 gift certificate to Country Village in Bothell for winning the contest. Readers submitted ballots to select the

best businesses in the Bothell and Kenmore area. Kahlhe’s ballot was selected at random from the thousands of votes cast in the Reporter contest. The Reporter congratulates Kahlhe and all the winners of the Best of Northshore contest.

Correction The Best of Northshore Best Realtor winner was Gerry Eagle, not as advertised in the Aug. 16 issue of the Reporter. The Reporter regrets the error.

More than 3,600 people from across the nation applied Katherine Lacy to the program, but only 255 — including Lacy — were accepted. “It was definitely a very valuable experience because of the connections I made and the people I met,” said Lacy, a math major. “I took away a new confidence that I could do research and I could contribute.” The Amgen Scholars Program provides fully funded scientific research experiences to undergraduate students at 10 universities in the United States and three in Europe. The program launched seven years ago.

Bothell pulls out win against Coeur d’Alene at Husky Stadium

...obituaries Robert A. Matthews

Robert A. Matthews (Colonel, United States Army, retired) died in hospice on Monday, September 9, 2013 after a brief hospitalization for congestive heart failure. He was 94 years old. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 6, at 3:00 p.m. at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church. The family requests that in lieu of flowers any memorial donations be sent to the Northshore Scholarship Foundation, P.O. Box 173, Bothell, WA 98041 to support the Pat Matthews Masters of Education Scholarship at UW Bothell, which Bob established in loving memory of his beloved wife. Bob Matthews was born to homesteaders Claude and Ruth Matthews in Boise, Idaho, in December 1918. He was the youngest of six brothers and outlived them all. His long military career started with a stint as a non-commissioned officer in the Field Artillery. During WW2 Bob commanded an airborne mortar battery in the 101st Airborne and was besieged with his division at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge; he served in Korea as a “straight-leg” infantryman. He and his family were in Heidelberg when the Berlin Wall went up, and the family took many Sunday drives that combined tourism with the practical purpose of learning evacuation routes across the West German countryside. During the 60’s he earned his Green Beret and served in the operations branch of the Special Forces school at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, prior to a posting overseas to New Delhi, India. Bob retired to Bothell, WA in 1968. He returned to school to gain a teaching degree, which led him to a new career in tutoring. He and his wife Pat Matthews joined Emmanuel Presbyterian Church in 1968, where he remained active until his dying day in community activities and organizations such as Kiwanis, the Northshore Senior Center, the Seattle Welsh Choir, and the Seattle Rose Society (in which he combined his longstanding interest in roses with a developing interest in photography). He enjoyed lively political contentions with his friends and associates at the Foundation House at Bothell. He was widowed in 1998 and is survived by six children, seven grandchildren, and three great-grand-children including Robert Ivan Matthews (Donna McKay), Patricia Williams (Bill Williams; Dan Williams, Abigail Herrera, Aaron Williams), David Matthews (Becky Fox Matthews), Susan Matthews (Maggie Nowakowska), Gwyn Stobie (Bruce Stobie; Duncan Stobie, Alyson Stobie), and James Matthews (Vivian Van Matre; Mackenzie Burton, Isabel Matthews). 880557

two-point conversions for the big 24-7 advantage. “[Bowers] was holding the ball too long in the first half and we told him to just trust his instincts and throw the ball like he can,” said Bainter. “He did and he threw the ball on time and threw it well.” The Cougars didn’t give in, as Bowers’ 17yard pass found Dayzell Wilson for a touchdown on the next possession. The Vikings extended their lead to 30-14 before halftime. Bothell’s first possession of the second half resulted in a 24-yard touchdown run on the legs of Colton Sather. The two-point conversion brought the Cougars back to within one score of tying the game. And that score came just minutes later. Bowers and Wilson hooked up again for a 23-yard touchdown reception. Another two-point conversion tied the game at 30-30. The Coeur d’Alene offense just kept on chugging along, scoring on its next possession to retake the lead. A second unanswered touchdown extended the lead at the

beginning of the fourth quarter to 43-30. But Bowers showed those leadership skills Bainter talked about by leading the Cougars down the field on a drive capped by a one-yard touchdown run by Damani St. Johns. The Vikings then received the ball and stalled out on offense, giving Bothell the posession on Coeur D’Alene’s 40-yard line as the Cougars’ defense came up big. Bowers would take advantage with one play. A 40-yard touchdown pass to Sather with less than two minutes remaining gave the Cougars a 44-43 lead. The Bothell defense would again hold off the Vikings to hold on for the comeback victory. The Cougars began the 2012 season with three losses. The win against the Vikings gives the young Bothell team something they did not have a chance at last year - an undefeated record. Bothell lost to Bellevue on Saturday 49-6 and will take on Capital tonight at Pop Keeney Stadium for the first home game of the season.
