Road project goes big Southeast 14th improvements will include bike lanes, traffic mitigation BY DANIEL NASH DNASH@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

The 10-member King County Boundary Review Board Committee heard six hours of testimony over two nights regarding the potential annexation of the Klahanie PAA to the city of Issaquah. LINDA BALL, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter


King County Boundary Review Board to decide fate of Klahanie


The 10-member King County boundary review board got more than an earful over two nights of testimony from the City of Issaquah, the City of Sammamish, a senior policy analyst for the county, the Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer district plus a plethora of community groups and individual citizens regarding the annexation of the Klahanie PAA to Issaquah. The BRB is a quasi-judicial body which makes decisions on incorporations, annexations, mergers and disincorporations by cities, towns, and sewer, water and fire districts. Whatever outcome the BRB decides is final, unless appealed to the King County Superior Court. The meeting room at the Issaquah Holiday Inn was packed both nights. The City of Issaquah was allowed to make its case first. Mayor Ava Frisinger took the lead outlining some of the history. Klahanie

and surrounding neighborhoods, were identified as an Issaquah potential annexation area in 1995. “We are a sustainable city with a long history,” Frisinger said. “We are a city of annexations.” Since its incorporation in 1892, which began with just the old town center, Issaquah has annexed all the rest of the areas in its borders. Frisinger said this annexation is the most densely populated one it has undertaken. Bob Harrison, the city administrator took over the presentation, stating that the proposed annexation meets the spirit of the city’s comprehensive growth plan. He said the 1973 comprehensive plan identified the PAA in Issaquah’s long-term planning. He brought up the success of the Issaquah Highlands, and pointed out that the city will provide enhanced services, including improving roads, parks and human services. He reiterated what the Nesbitt study said, that Klahanie residents will pay $383 less in property taxes on an average single-family residence assessed at $320,000. The Nesbitt study was a finan-

cial analysis by an independent consultant. BRB chair-elect, Paul MacCready of Seattle, asked Harrison about taking over utilities in the future — a major hot button in this issue. Harrison said no action has been taken on an assumption of water and sewer serviced in the PAA, which is served by the Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District (SPWSD). City finance director, Diane Marcotte said the city has not looked at the numbers yet if they were to assume the water and sewer service, so they could not answer questions about any potential water and sewer levies. BRB board member Evangeline Anderson of Bellevue asked what a water bill would look like if Issaquah assumed the water service. Sheldon Lynne, Issaquah’s public works engineering director said the assumption study hasn’t even been discussed with the city council, but the study will address how to separate those utilities. It has been Issaquah’s stance all along that there will be no change; water and sewer would still be

provided by SPWSD, however Issaquah’s policy is to provide direct retail water and sewer services to all customers within its limits. Lynne said previously that the assumption study would not even be presented to the Issaquah City council until after the first of the year. He said utilities are a non-profit, with a budget separate from the city budget. A utility assumption would also have to be presented to the BRB for approval. SEE KLAHANIE, 2

Construction of a paved public road on a private right-of-way will eventually include bike lanes and traffic management measures. The upgrade was voted in by the Sammamish City Council after hearing concerns from area residents. Building may begin as soon as the end of October. Contractors for William Buchan Homes have been continuing construction on Lawson Park, a 31-home residential development twothirds of a mile east of City Hall. The project occupies what was once half of a secluded neighborhood along a privately owned gravel section of SE 14th Street. The western half remains a private road, but the council authorized in March the construction of a paved public right-of-way, in light of the county hearing examiner’s determination that it could either be improved or barricaded. Residents along the road, as well as in neighboring Renaissance Ridge and the Windsor Boulevard developments, were SEE ROAD, 3

Frisinger said the assumption study, completed this year, only includes areas served by Bellevue and areas served by SPWSD that are already in Issaquah’s borders. She said the council didn’t want to include utility issues or an assumption in the Nesbitt study because they didn’t know what the outcome of the Nesbitt study would be. “Those assumptions are a separate process,” she said. Jay Krauss, the general manager of SPWSD testified that the district, which has been in existence since 1948, currently serving 54,000 people, was formed in partnership with the developer of Klahanie. “The district’s services were designed specifically for Klahanie,” Krauss said. “Issaquah has an expressed policy of providing utilities to annexation areas. The city’s plan is undeniable — they intend to take over the water and sewer.” He said such a takeover would have profound consequences on customers and the district. Currently the percentage of all of the district’s water connections that are in Klahanie is 18.5 percent, and the percentage of all of the district’s sewer connections in Klahanie is 30.4 percent, which would be a huge hit to the district. Krauss said the current assumption study enters into an agreement with RH Engineering to assume parts of SPWSD in Issaquah now, serviced by other districts as a result of previous annexations. Krauss said the district wants the annexation proposal to go back to Issaquah so it can make its intentions clear about water and sewer. BRB chair, Mary Lynne Evans of Seattle


asked Krauss and Scott Jonas, the district’s operations manager if they were satisfied with the protection of their wells (that are inside Issaquah’s City limits). Krauss said “absolutely not.” That in itself, is another issue. Sammamish was represented by Mayor Tom Odell and city council members Don Gerend and Ramiro Valderrama. “We have a great deal of difficulty with this process because the PAA has never been adjusted to reflect city incorporation in 1999,” Odell said. “Much has changed over the years — many of the residents of the PAA and Sammamish weren’t even here at the time of the last vote (to annex to Issaquah).” Odell also pointed out the geography of the area. Most of Klahanie abuts Sammamish. It was echoed by many, that Sammamish and Klahanie consider that they are residents of the Plateau. Karen Wolf, a senior policy analyst with King County, said Sammamish — if it chose to do so — could amend its city comprehensive plan to designate the PAA as its annexation area, then approach the Growth Management Planning Council to amend the county-wide planning policy to designate the area as Sammamish’s annexation area on the official annexation area map. However, the two cities cannot overlap. “They both can’t designate it as their PAA in the official King County-wide planning policy,” Wolf said. “The growth management planning council could say to Issaquah you had your chance, but that would be unprecedented,” Wolf said. A failed vote to annex into Issaquah is not considered a removal of the PAA from Issaquah’s comp plan — Issaquah would have to amend the plan to remove the PAA. Wolf said it was the analysis of the county

that the annexation is within the goals of the growth management act and that it is consistent as an urban growth area. “Might you have been thinking about getting your feet on the ground before?” BRB member Anderson asked of Sammamish, wondering why it didn’t pursue adding Klahanie to its PAA before. Odell said they didn’t take action in 2002 because they were busy building a new city. Then there is the conversation about police and fire. Lee Soptich, the fire chief for Eastside Fire and Rescue, explained to the BRB that EFR, which began in 1999, was created through an interlocal agreement between North Bend, Sammamish, Issaquah, King County and Washington Fire Districts 10 and 38. He said the directors of EFR have not take a position on the annexation because two of its partners are involved. Noting that the interlocal agreement expires at the end of 2014, any one of the partners can give notice to withdraw at the beginning of 2014. As previously reported in this paper, Sammamish is unhappy with the business arrangement with EFR because it’s based on assessed valuation, not calls. David Kappler of Issaquah, who is against the annexation, is a former Issaquah City Council member. He has studied the EFR formula well. “This annexation would partially remove the tax base of a very active special purpose district and replaces only a small percent of the much needed revenue,” Kappler said. He said the district collects about $2,150,000 per year from the residents of Klahanie. He said if Klahanie is annexed to Issaquah or Sammamish, EFR will lose approximately $1,300,000 in net revenue per year which would have to be made up through increased charges to the rest of the district, reduction in district costs, increased payments from EFR partners or some of

each. “Sammamish believes they are overpaying EFR and is giving serious consideration to leaving the partnership,” Kappler said. “This in not an idle threat on their part. Sammamish owns three stations and 40 percent of the rolling stock now used by EFR.” Kappler provided an exhibit showing that a home assessed at $450,000 in Klahanie would pay $791.95 in fire tax compared to $286.20 on a home of the same value home in Issaquah should annexation occur. “I checked 10 different properties up there (Klahanie) and no one has challenged my numbers,” Kappler said. Gerend also brought up the fact that no one seems to have the money to widen Issaquah-Fall City Road, but Sammamish has the ability to do so, right now. Kirsten O’Malley, representing “Klahanie Choice,” said the residents of Klahanie are of a more similar demographic to the people in Sammamish. “We’re both suburban on the plateau,” she said. “Klahanie is a planned development.” The group hired attorney Rick Aramburu, whose testimony drew the ire of one Klahanie resident in particular. Aramburu said Issaquah has not committed to zoning, a concern of the group. Issaquah City Council will decide on zoning at its Oct. 7 meeting but the BRB will not meet to publicly deliberate until Oct. 10, with final decision anticipated in Nov. He suggested the board reject the annexation proposal to allow Sammamish to make its proposal. “Let them put up or shut up and if they don’t then Issaquah can come back. The competition between the two municipalities must be resolved,” Aramburu said. Frisinger had the last word. “Let the voters of the PAA decide,” she said.

reluctant to accept greater thru-traffic on their roadways. A traffic study estimated increases on 14th from zero to 200 trips per day, and increases of more than 100 on each of the neighboring developments’ main roads. Following repeated public comment on the issue at the council’s Sept. 3 meeting, city staff hosted a neighborhood meeting to hear concerns. “100 percent” of the meeting attendees wanted the project limited to foot and bicycle traffic in order to keep potential teenage speeders cutting through from Skyline High School, Public Works Director Laura Philpot said. “We did pose the question to them … if the road is constructed, let’s spend some time focusing on that,” Philpot told the council at its Sept. 16 meeting. “The first thing we heard is they would like to see it expand to accommodate bicycles. They didn’t want bicycles to have to share a lane with vehicles. “They (also) felt that, if the project were to go through, they would like to see the city implement


some traffic-calming features in anticipation of this.” Connecting 242nd Drive Southeast was already wide enough to stripe bike lanes all the way to Southeast Eighth Street’s established lanes if desired, she said in response to a question from council member Nancy Whitten. The traffic-calming measures would fall under the city’s Neighborhood Traffic Management Program, which executes in two phases. Phase One involves passive measures including volunteer watch, an information campaign, signage installation and police target enforcement. Phase Two involves active traffic calming projects such as traffic circles and speed humps. Implementation requires 60 percent approval from the affected area. “If the barricade does get opened, then I would request this 12-month long traffic management project,” street resident Sharon Steinbis said in public comment. Steinbis said she believed Renaissance Ridge, Lawson Park, Windsor Fields, Windsor Greens and Coyote Country would all benefit from traffic intervention. “When 248th was opened, it became a shortcut to the high school,” she

Southeast 14th Street. DANIEL NASH, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter said. “So we now have this intersection at 248th Avenue and 14th Street with stop signs and, typically, the high school students blow right through… They may start at 25 or 30 miles per hour near Windsor Greens but, as they hit southbound on 248th, they’re hitting 35 and 50 miles an hour.” Mayor Tom Odell expressed hesitance at prioritizing one neighborhood’s traffic concerns over others. “This neighborhood is not unique,” he said. “This sort of situation exists all over the city of Sammamish. I have a little heartburn with pulling this one out of the line and putting it ahead of the line. We also have not heard, frankly, from the people of Windsor Green, who would continue to bear the bulk of the so-called high school

traffic that is currently on their road and will increase in the future. They were not consulted and that bothers me.” Deputy Mayor Ramiro Valderrama-Aramayo and council members Don Gerend and Whitten said they believed the city was obliged to give consideration to any neighborhood they had actively altered. Only Odell voted against the motion to move forward with the improvements. The project’s design consultant was directed Sept. 17 to add the improvements to their original road plans, Philpot said. The city will need to convert the road to public right-of-way and award a construction contract before work can begin. Reach Daniel Nash at 425-391-0363

NO, NOT HUMAN On Sept. 13, a Klahanie man entered the police department lobby with what he believed to be human bones. An officer informed him they appeared to be animal bones, and advised the King County Sheriff ’s Office had jurisdiction of his area. FALSE ALARM At 5:51 p.m. Sept. 15, two officers were dispatched to the intersection of Newport Way NW and 17th Avenue NW, where it was reported a person was on top of a shed wearing camouflage and carrying a rifle. Police located a large group of people playing with air pellet guns. A BIT ANGRY Police responded to Providence Point Drive Southeast on Sept. 17, where a caller reported a reckless driver. The driver had cut off the complainant near the East Lake Sammamish Boulevard roundabout and flipped him the bird. Dispatch initially reported the suspect was also swerving on the roadway.

Sammamish NOT HIS, AFTER ALL At 5:05 a.m. Sept. 16, an officer spotted a vehicle, associated with a recent burglary, parked at a gas station. One of the occupants was a known burglar and frequent suspect. His name came up with two arrest warrants, for which he was taken into custody. The officer observed several tools in the backseat of the car. The other occupant initially said they were his, but changed his mind when he was told he could be charged if any possessions he claimed had been reported stolen. The car was impounded. COPPER On Sept. 16, residents reported the theft of copper from their home under construction. Plumbing fixtures had been taken.

Mammograms save lives


very week, more than 100 women in Washington state are diagnosed with breast cancer. The good news is, when caught early, a woman’s five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 98 percent. This is why Komen Puget Sound is such a passionate advocate for regular mammograms. There are so many reasons for putting off a mammogram. Perhaps you think “I have plenty of time,” or “it won’t happen to me.” But the simple fact is a mammogram can save your life. Also, when breast cancer hits, it affects your entire family. You are not just Mona Locke getting that mammogram for yourself, but also for your spouse, your children and everyone you love. At Komen Puget Sound, we bring this personal sense of urgency to the work we do every day, as we have for the past 20 years. Today, Komen Puget Sound is the single largest funder of free mammograms to low-income and uninsured women. Luisa Lavalle was one of the more than 3,100 people to receive free mammograms provided by Komen Puget Sound last year. Even though she worked full-time, Luisa lacked the $900 a month she needed to pay for private health insurance. Encouraged by a friend, she attended a Komen funded free mammogram event in her community, where she was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. Here is what Luisa shared with us: “Without Komen, I probably would not have had my mammogram in time. I know it saved my life.” I am proud of what we have accomplished for Luisa and thousands of women like her, yet I am even more mindful of all that still needs to be done. Too many of us have lost a wife, a sister, a mother, a daughter, a friend to breast cancer. Please join our local fight against breast cancer. To learn more about Komen Puget Sound, visit us online at Together we can and will save lives in our community, and ultimately end breast cancer forever.

LETTERS LET KLAHANIE VOTERS CHOOSE ISSAQUAH OR SAMMAMISH Klahanie Choice is a neighborhood citizens group dedicated to helping Klahanie and surrounding neighborhoods make the best choice for our future. When Sammamish incorporated in 1999, the Greater Klahanie neighborhoods were not included in the city boundaries; we remained in Issaquah’s Potential Annexation Area (PAA). A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Sammamish and Issaquah in 2002, wherein Issaquah indicated that it would release Klahanie from its PAA and allow Sammamish to add it to its PAA, thereby making it eligible for annexation to Sammamish. This transfer of PAA was never consummated by Issaquah and, in 2005 a vote was taken to annex to Issaquah. The vote passed, but not the vote to assume a share of Issaquah’s existing bonded indebtedness. As a consequence, Issaquah decided to go against the vote of the people and not annex Klahanie to Issaquah. Now, eight years later, Issaquah finally decides to respond to another desire of the citizens of Klahanie to be a part of a city, rather than being governed by King County. In the meantime, however, Sammamish has matured and is a wonderful residen-

tial city, very similar to Klahanie, in excellent financial condition (no bonded indebtedness) and cradles Klahanie geographically. Sammamish has expressed a desire to annex Klahanie, if the Klahanie citizens so choose, but this cannot happen without consent of Issaquah and changing of the PAA. Many of us in Klahanie feel that Sammamish could be a better fit for Klahanie, for the many reasons so compellingly expressed at the Boundary Review Board Hearing, Sept. 1819. We are asking Issaquah to give us the opportunity to choose which city we would like to be annexed into. Issaquah has tentatively scheduled

an election in February, 2014, subject to the outcome of the Boundary Review Board decision. We are asking to have two questions on that ballot: 1. Do you want to annex to a neighboring city? YES NO 2. Which city do you want to be annexed to? Sammamish Issaquah This would allow the two cities to fulfill the term of the 2002 MOU which states, that the “city of Sammamish and the city of Issaquah find that it is generally in their best mutual interests to accommodate requests for annexation based upon the preferences of the citizens within a PAA.” Let Klahanie decide. Give us a real choice.

The point man for school change J

oshua Halsey is about to become one of the most important people in public education in Washington. For a few more days he’ll manage the South King County Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Learning Network — a mouthful of jargon for a job guiding an $11 million program to improve achievement of 117,000 students with creative and cuttingedge instructional techniques. On Oct. 7, he’ll begin work as the first executive director of the Washington State Charter School Commission in Olympia. In this gig, he’ll be in the vanguard of a voter-driven effort to transform learning for the state’s 1 million public school students. Jerry Cornfield With passage of Initiative 1240 last year, Washington will be allowing up to 40 private nonprofits to run schools with public funds. . Halsey, who will earn $100,000 a year, will be steering the nine-member commission as it sorts through applications this winter and decides next February which to authorize. His exact role is getting formulated, but he said he expects to be an “active participant” in the decision-making. “I would hope we would avoid experimentation sites,” he said. “What we really want is innovation sites.” Halsey, who is married and a father of two young children, is an unfamiliar name for many veterans entrenched in the state’s education establishment. This should give him an unsullied foundation on which to build relationships with those trumpeting the value of these alternative schools in helping students as well as those still trying to prevent any from

opening because they consider them unconstitutional. Commissioners chose him from a crowd of candidates, which included some with experience doing a similar job in other states. “You will find him to be a strong leader,” said Steve Sundquist, chairman of the Washington commission. “His Joshua Halsey unique mix of experience, curiosity, and empathy will serve us well as we work to create the strongest charter school network in the nation.” He’ll also need to be adept in the political arena, a place he’s not been visible to this point in his career. Once the first charter school opens — possibly in fall 2014 — the state and school districts will have five years in which to authorize the 40 allotted charters. If the commission wants more it will need to convince the Legislature and governor to pass a law adjusting the cap. Charter schools still remain largely disliked in parts of the state and among many state lawmakers. All it will take is one less than shiny operation to surface to imperil chances of getting rid of the cap. Halsey said he is looking forward to successfully navigating those potentially choppy waters. “I want to make sure we create the best charter schools in the nation,” he said. “That’s what I’m all about.” Jerry Cornfield is a political reporter who covers Olympia for The Daily Herald in Everett, which is among the Washington state newspapers in the Sound Publishing group.

More than 100 people will be employed to staff the new RAM Restaurant and Brewery in the Issaquah Highlands. The restaurant opens Monday, Sept. 30, joining the group’s other 29 restaurants. It will be The RAM’s only Eastside location. The family-owned restaurants was started in Lakewood, Wash. 43 years ago by Jeff Iverson Sr. The business is now run by his sons Jeff Iverson Jr. and David Iverson.

Regional Manager Marty Hillis said they have been talking about locating in the Issaquah Highlands for six years. The Issaquah RAM is the company’s 11th Puget Sound location and has 6,566 square feet and seating capacity of 330 guests, not including a large outdoor patio. The RAM will open every day at 11 a.m. for lunch — the last call for food or drinks is 1:15 a.m. “We have a lot of fun on game day,” Hillis said. That’s a given because the restaurant has

The Children’s Alliance has recognized Sen. Andy Hill, R-45th district, as one of its 2013 legislative champions for his work to end childhood hunger. Hill secured additional funding for the State Food Assistance program, which provides grocery money to legally-residing, low-income immigrant families. Hill’s district includes Sammamish. Hill’s Senate plans boosted the program’s funding by $9.4 million for the next two years. Hill, the Senate’s budget leader, successfully kept the funding in place during final budget negotiations with the House, the alliance said. The Children’s Alliance is the primary children’s advocacy group in Washington.

Hilarity on rollerskates

Campy cult hit ‘Xanadu’ delights at Village Theatre

Dane Stokinger and cast show their skills at roller skating.

Village Theatre has scored a hilarious hit with “Xanadu,” a campy, athletic spoof of the notorious flop turned cult classic. If you never saw the original movie starring Olivia NewtonJohn and Gene Kelly — so bad it almost single handedly spawned the birth of the Golden Raspberry Award — you’ll still walk out laughing after seeing this stage adaptation. The Tony nominated musical satire, originally produced on Broadway in 2007, written by Douglas Carter Beane, with music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, is wrapped around the film’s original chart-topping songs like “I’m Alive,” “Suddenly,” “Evil Woman,” and “Have You Ever Been Mellow?” The year is 1980: a creatively-frustrated street artist on the Venice Beach boardwalk, Sonny Malone, desperately needs a muse to finish his chalk mural of the nine Greek muses, entitled “Ancient Greek Arty Chicks.” Enter Grecian muse Clio, in leg warmers and roller skates — disguised as mortal Australian girl Kira. She introduces him to real estate magnate Danny McGuire, owner of an abandoned building where he dreams of creating a roller disco palace. The Village Theatre’s production succeeds in capturing all the


campy zest and glitter of the Broadway remake, with terrific music direction by Tim Symons on songs originally tracked by pop band Electric Light Orchestra, excellent choreography by Kathryn Van Meter and creative costuming by Karen Ann Ledger. Much of the magic comes from the energy between the star duo — and real-life couple — Jessica Skerritt, in the lead role as Clio, and Dane Stokinger, as Sonny. Skerritt shimmers in the role, with captivating singing and excellent comedic timing —

PUBLIC NOTICES CITY OF ISSAQUAH NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING PRE-ANNEXATION ZONING FOR KLAHANIE POTENTIAL ANNEXATION AREA The Issaquah City Council will hold a public hearing at the Monday October 7, 2013 Council Meeting that begins at 7:00 pm, in the Council Chambers, 135 E. Sunset Way, Issaquah, WA, for the purpose of obtaining input on proposed pre-annexation zoning for the Klahanie Potential Annexation Area (PAA). This is the second of two required public hearings. The Klahanie PAA consists of approximately 1,243 acres north of the existing City limits, and includes the planned community of Klahanie and several neighboring single family subdivisions. Maps of the annexation area and additional information on the proposed annexation can be found at Klahanie. The proposed pre-annexation zoning for this area is the Issaquah zoning classification that is most comparable to the existing King County zoning. The proposed City zoning would only

apply if, and when, annexation to Issaquah occurs. At the first public hearing the City Council considered the proposed pre-annexation zoning; however, they did not take any formal action. At the second public hearing a specific zoning ordinance will be presented for Council consideration. Council action shall take place at the Monday October 21, 2013 Council Meeting that begins at 7:00 pm, in the Council Chambers. The proposal may change as a result of the public hearing process. Anyone interested may appear at the public hearing and be heard for or against, or provide comments, regarding the proposed Pre-Annexation Zoning. For more information, please contact Trish Heinonen, Policy Planning Manager, at (425) 837-3095. Published in Issaquah/Sammamish Reporter on September 27, 2013. #882400.

overdone Aussie accent included. Stokinger also delivers powerful vocals as the lovable, smitten beach bum in jean cut-offs. Clio’s cackling evil muse sisters, Melpomene (Lisa Estridge) and Calliope (Christine Riipii), get down singing a mean version of “Evil Woman,” but also get many of the laughs. The plot revolves around the jealous sisters’ scheme to curse Clio and send her to the Netherworld for daring to defy the divine rules that demi-gods cannot fall in love with mortals, nor that muses can share in creating art. Before the end, Kira must confront their father, Zeus, played ably by Jeff Steitzer. Steitzer doubles as dancer, doing a soft shoe routine as Danny McGuire. In any case, you’ll leave feeling joyfully exuberant. For all its silly fun, Xanadu is timely, if for no other reason than its championing the arts, and shows how even how schlock art can be redeemed. My only criticism was that the sound was cranked up so high it distorted some of the vocals. There’s plenty of audience participation. If you come see the musical on a Friday night, you might even be invited onstage to dance along with the cast after the encore. Tickets are $34 to $65. More information is available at 425-3922202.

Issaquah senior no longer just a face in the crowd BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@BELLEVUEREPORTER.COM

During her time with the Issaquah swim and dive and track and field teams, Gabrielle Gevers has seen more than her share of standout performances. From school record-holder Haley Jacobson tearing up the track and reaching the podium at state on the track to swimmer Kayla Flaten doing likewise in the pool, she has been front and center as the Eagles have maintained their spot among the state’s most consistently solid programs in both disciplines. Now a senior, Gevers is ready to put the final seal on her time with the Eagles. She already owns top-three state finishes in both sports, earning a third place finish in the 400 meter relay in track her freshman year and qualifying in four events in the pool as a junior last season in addition to a host of other accolades. But before she was one of KingCo’s top dual-sport threats, she was an uncertain freshman trying to find her place on the team and without any experience in the pool

or on the track. “I don’t remember why I chose swimming,” Gevers said. “I just read books and was a ballerina.” Making the transition even more difficult was the fact Gevers had been homeschooled for her entire academic career, leaving her without a friendly face on the first day of practice and lacking the common point of reference most freshmen are able to lean on as they take on various roles in the student body. “I was terrified,” she said. “I didn’t know anyone on the team.” While she had no competitive swimming experience before joining the prep squad as a freshman, longtime Issaquah coach Laura Halter said Gevers’ work ethic, determination and curiosity for the finer points of the sport all made her an instantly likable figure among teammates. As her experience in the pool and confidence grew, Halter said she knew Gevers had the chance to have a career that ranked among the best in program history. “Part of the reason she stands out in my mind is her tenacity and hard work,” Halter said. “It’s been fun because her energy is so positive.” An intense focus on the details has been another key for Gevers, according to Halter, and is one of many factors that has turned her in to one of the leaders for the Eagles. One of those underclassmen is also a student Gevers was homeschooled with before she joined the mainstream student body at Issaquah as a sophomore. SEE GEVERS, 10

Home&Garden Improvement FALL 2013


Putting your garden to bed for the winter with metal or plastic trellises or plastic tubes. Protect your trees and shrubs with burlap or geotextile wraps in November. If you want to transplant a tree, the best time for most species is when the leaves have started to change color.

Trees and shrubs

Perennials and annuals

The dead wood on trees and shrubs should be cut back during the fall. If this is done while there are still some leaves on the branches it will be easier to distinguish what needs pruning. Spread mulch at the base of your trees and shrubs to protect the roots, and if there is a chance that animals will gnaw at the bark, wrap the trunks

Don’t be afraid to divide perennials or plant new varieties in the fall, depending on which hardiness zone you live in. The foliage of existing plants should be pruned and then the plants protected with a layer of mulch. Annuals will have to be brought inside in the fall if you want to keep them over the winter. This is also the time to take

cuttings and collect the seeds of some of your favorite annuals for next spring.


Many gardeners are never quite sure what to do with bulbs. In fact, some bulbs and tubers cannot be left in the garden over the winter and have to be lifted from the soil and stored inside in a dark, dry place until it is time to replant them. Fall is, however, the time to plant spring-flowering bulbs. Don’t hesitate to ask your local garden center staff for suggestions and tips on which bulbs will need this kind of care.

While she downplayed the significance of her role as a mentor for a freshman now in the same position as she once was, Halter said Gevers has undoubtedly emerged as a figure for her underclassmen to emulate. “She is just such a happy kid, it rubs off,” Halter said. “They see how much fun she is having working hard and being successful, but also just the enjoyment she gets out of it.” The smiles weren’t always the first thing on Gevers’ mind, she can admit now. But with a high school career that now includes multiple state appearances in two sports, nominations to homecoming court and student government and plenty of recognizable faces in the hallways between classes, there are few things she would change. “From my freshman year to now is completely different,” she said. “I know so many people, am friends with so many people and I’m excited to go to school and see everyone.” As excited as she is to see them, Halter and the rest of the Eagles may be even more excited to see her as the season moves toward another push at state. Gevers said her own confidence in the pool has grown immensely and given her the ability to focus on her own technique rather than obsessing over fractions of a second. That will likely mean another shot at the top of the podium at the 4A state meet, with Gevers owning some of the top returning times in 2013. According to Halter, regardless of her fate this season, the legacy has already been secured. “She will be one of the best swimmers I’ve ever coached,” she said. Gevers and the Eagles will be back in the pool Friday against Garfield at 3:30. The regular season concludes Wednesday, Oct. 17 at Julius Boehm Pool against rival Skyline.

Eastlake looking to bounce back, Issy, Skyline, EC open divisional schedule BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@BELLEVUEREPORTER.COM

Skyline (2-1) VS. Roosevelt (3-0), Friday, 7 p.m. The Spartans picked up a second consecutive win, a 21-6 over Sammamish rival Eastlake, to finish the non-league slate 2-1 heading in to a matchup between a pair of 2012 playoff teams this Friday when Roosevelt comes for a visit. Cole Blackburn ended a pair of first-quarter drives for Eastlake with interceptions last week to spurn an offense that has still yet to find the end zone through the air in 2013. Quarterback Kilton Anderson has rushed for three touchdowns, and has been aided by the emergence of sophomore running back Rashaad Boddie, who had a pair of scores last week including a school-record 96-yard touchdown run before leaving with an injury.

Eastlake (2-1) VS. Bothell (2-1), Friday, 7 p.m. The Wolves lost for the first time under new head coach Don Bartel last week to the Spartans and enter the divisional slate against a Bothell team that has already topped 42 points twice on the young season.

2013 Eastside Senior

Issaquah head coach Chris Bennett didn’t mince words when talking about the Newport group his Eagles will face this week in its division opener, calling coach Mike Miller’s 2013 team, “The best team they have had in a while,” during a Tuesday practice. Issaquah must improve upon its defensive effort from last week, when O’Dea ran up more than 400 yards rushing in a 51-26 runaway. The challenge gets no easier against another team looking to pound the ball on the ground in the Knights, primarily with running backs Conner Baumann, Paul Wells and Nkumbu

Eastside Catholic (2-1) @ Bainbridge (0-3), Friday, 7 p.m. The Crusaders rebounded in a big way last week. beating Lake City, Idaho in a comeback with a touchdown in the waning moments of the game to escape with a 34-30 win. Sophomore quarterback Harley Kirsch tossed two more touchdowns and completed 20 of his 30 passes on the game, including the game-winner to sophomore Devon Arbis-Jackson. Senior Henry Jarvis finished the game with 278 total yards, 246 on the ground and another 32 receiving and will likely be plenty for Bainbridge to handle, as the Spartans have allowed 40 points or more in each of their first three games, all losses. Five players have already scored a rushing touchdown on the year for coach Jeremy Thielbahr and the Crusaders, led by five from Jarvis and two more from Brandon Wellington and Elisha Pa’aga.

Issaquah (1-2) VS. Newport (3-0), Friday, 7 p.m.

Chisebuka. Each of the trio found the end zone on the ground in last week’s 40-9 win over Woodinville and Bennett said his own defense will have to find a way to finish tackles this week after letting too many Irish runners work their way to open space a week ago.

Thinking about future housing and health arrangements can be a stressful topic for both children and parents.

While the defense held up its end of the bargain, particularly in a shutout second half, the offense struggled to sustain drives and will have to regain its dynamic form from the first two weeks, when the Wolves averaged nearly 32 points per game. Bothell’s only loss of the year came at the hands of Bellevue, a game the Wolverines controlled throughout en route to a 49-6 win. Eastlake was without two-way standout Drew Lewis last week due to injury and his status was uncertain early in the week as he continued to rehab.
