Salmon Days kicks off Saturday BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

T

he weather for Salmon Days last year was unprecedented but, regardless of this year’s weather, expect hordes of people to gather in Issaquah this weekend for the annual celebration of the return of the salmon to Issaquah Creek. At a preview for public officials Sept. 25, Bob Everett with Washington State Fish and Wildlife, which operates the hatchery (with a great deal of help from FISH, the Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery), said in the late ‘80s the hatchery was in tough shape. “It was going to be closed, but the community rallied and saved it,” Everett said. “You won’t find a hatchery to rival this anywhere in the country.” He said the hatchery is unique because it’s in a town that has grown up around it. Celina Steiger, the hatchery’s education coordinator, said over 10,000 third-graders visit the hatchery each year in a program called “Salmon in the Schools.” Eggs are distributed to classrooms throughout the districts. The kids watch them grow until it’s time to release them into Issaquah creek when they become fingerlings. Everett said the hatchery plays

a critical role in the recovery of Kokanee, freshwater salmon that don’t travel beyond the fresh water of Lake Sammamish. He said this year the largest number of Kokanee have come back — 400,000 to 500,000. “Two (million) to 2.5 million chinook and coho are raised and released each year,” he said. “By the miracle of nature they make it all the way through the Ballard locks, out to the ocean and come back.” Everett said it is a continuing effort to upgrade the hatchery. Currently, upgrades are being made to the upper intake to make it easier for the fish to get to the watershed. The project is behind schedule, but he said it should be completed by the end

of October. Festival chair and Issaquah City Council member Eileen Barber said the one thing that citizens of Issaquah share is salmon and the hatchery. “They are icons everywhere in our city. It’s difficult to imagine Issaquah without the salmon,” Barber said. She said 75 years ago there were no salmon left in the creek due to mining and logging. Not only did the hatchery revive the salmon, but also it is an economic engine that benefits Issaquah by bringing in tourists who eat at Issaquah restaurants and stay in Issaquah hotels, Barber said. “The fish provide nutrients to the creek, which in turn sup-

“It’s difficult to imagine Issaquah without the salmon.” – Eileen Barber ports the habitat,” Barber continued. “Without the hatchery this city wouldn’t be the vibrant place it is today.” Last year 180,000 people came to Salmon Days, possibly a record due to the incredible weather. This year there are an estimated 60 food vendors to tempt your tastebuds, 70 nonprofit groups with booths, and an estimated 270 artisans. Salmon Days won Best Overall Festival in its category in 2012, awarded by the Grand Pinnacle International Festival and Events Association. Staff writer Linda Ball can be reached at 425-391-0363.

A document prepared for the city of Issaquah indicates that the city has been considering assuming water and sewer services provided by the Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District to customers within Issaquah’s borders for some time. The Oct. 2011 document, simply titled “The White Paper Analysis of Operating Options,” was prepared by an unnamed consultant. It passed through the hands of Dan Ervin of RH2 Engineering, a consultant to the city, Sheldon Lynne and Kerry Ritland with the city of Issaquah’s public works engineering department, and Keith Niven the city’s economic development director. “We have two utilities, water and sewer,” said Lynne, the director of public works. “We have the expertise, knowledge and the skills — and we have a bigger picture focus on land use and need than the district does. If the city believes it’s in the best interest of its citizens — there’s no reason the district should fight that type of analysis.” The district serves 54,000 customers, and has been a special purpose district, meaning that is its sole duty, to provide water and sewer, since 1948. Lynne said that the state’s Growth Management Act encourages cities to be the preferred provider for urban services. The cost for the city to assume the water district’s service in Issaquah is estimated to cost $1.5 million according to the white paper analysis — the same amount as installing an active water treatment system. Issaquah and the water district are at odds over the city’s plans to SEE WATER, 17

ageA and you can see it reflected in the lives t age 82, John Neary is still an avid golfer. Yet when the Sammamish Plateau resident was retired in Arizona, he thought he needed another hobby. He found it carving Hopi Kachina Dolls, which are used by the Hopi Tribe to teach tribal youth about their ancestors. Neary and his wife, Venelda, had retired to Sun Lakes, Ariz., near Phoenix, in the early ‘90s. The Hopi Tribe resides on 1.5 million acres in Northeast Arizona made up of 12 villages on three mesas. His teacher was another retiree who was very interested in the Hopi culture. “He must have carved 50 Kachina Dolls when we started,” Neary said. “He was very good.” Neary said the Hopis used jackknives to carve the dolls, but he learned using a short knife specifically for carving, at an initial investment of $16. The classes were free. “The Kachina doll is the representation of a Hopi spirit or deity,” Neary said. “Kachina dolls were, and still are, made to be given away as gifts to Hopi children so

ENOUGH

P

Time to end the government shutdown

resident Obama made the right decision Wednesday to invite Republican and Democratic congressional leaders to the White House to try and bring an end to the shutdown of many government services. This mess never should have happened in the first place. Blame some House Republicans for using the shutdown tactic in order to delay — or, what they really want, to kill — the Affordable Health Care Act. Their actions are a disservice to the American public. Like it or hate it, the act meets a need too long ignored in our country – giving people, especially poor people, access to health care when they are sick or injured. Yes, we know that those without access to their own physician can show up at a hospital emergency room and have their condition stabilized. But that’s a lousy – and expensive – way to deliver health care. Perhaps these House Republicans don’t care about this. After all, they have a health care plan and the government — that means taxpayers — pays for most of the premiums. Or maybe they feel that the poor should have better managed their minimum-wage income to pay for that expensive diagnostic test that might find and cure a terminal cancer in time. Will House Republicans next target Medicare? How about Social Security? After all, shouldn’t everyone be managing their stock portfolios and million-dollar pay to take care of these future needs? Why should taxpayers be dinged to keep older Americans healthy or from being destitute in their final years? The Affordable Health Care Act will be an added expense for many Americans. But the good it does goes beyond mere dollars and cents. Access to health care may not seem like a big deal — until you have a medical condition that is not only is beyond your financial means, but also precludes you from even getting it because of a pre-existing condition. Thankfully, those days are coming to an end. And so, too, should the unseemly conduct of a few House Republicans. – Craig Groshart, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter ISSAQUAH | SAMMAMISH

LETTERS Do annexations really help Issaquah? I think the Boundary Review Board needs to hear from citizens of Issaquah, Yes, our city is a "city of annexes," but somebody should ask how well that's working out for everybody. The goal of making issaquah big is only to get regional dollars and eventually light-rail over I-90. It needs a huge population that can be taxed in order to make that work. Perhaps the city could set up a website to explain that.

Bryan Weinstein, Issaquah

Beware of outlandish campaign promises This is the funny season. It is the time when political candidates make promises that are outlandish in order to win votes. One of the often heard statements from candidates are promises that they personally will save taxes or fees because they are more fair and balanced then anyone else. They do not usually offer to communicate how they intend to carry out their grand scheme by themselves. How they know they are more fair and balanced then anyone else is a mystery,

but they promise that anyway. In the water and sewer business, cuts can be made in the near term, but ultimately cost more dollars to pay for the neglected valves, pumps, and pipes in the future. Many cities like Atlanta and smaller ones like Fountain Hills, Ariz., have made that mistake. They then turned their districts over to private enterprises who could raise rates outside of much of the public's reach. For example, Fountain Hills turned its district private in 2011. The private owners now want to raise the rates over 30 percent. Be aware of candidate promises. Their visions sound good with quick fixes and their agendas, which are not usually complete thoughts. We need to keep good strong government in place and not trade for one-liners, false hopes, and unrealistic promises.

a positive influence on this district and the education it provides. Lisa brings skill, thought, intelligence and integrity to every table; her glass is always half full.   Lisa has a knack for putting new ideas into action.  As five president of programs for the Grand Ridge PTSA, Lisa implemented two new programs: Grizzly Guys, a group of fathers and men who encourage male participation in school activities; and the Cultural Diversity Council, a group of multicultural parents who create and implement a weekly cultural curriculum for Grand Ridge students. Lisa also brought the Bellevue Arts Museum’s Art of Discovery Project to Grand Ridge.  This traveling exhibit showcases art pieces created by Northwest artists and provides a corresponding curriculum for elementary-aged students. Speaking as a parent and as a teacher in the district, I want someone like Lisa on my district’s school board.  She is accessible and approachable; she keeps the best interests of the district’s community, staff, parents, and students in mind; and she cooperates with other leaders to find common ground and implementable solutions.

Politicians hope shutdown opens wallets

N

othing feeds a politician’s campaign coffers quite like a good partisan fight. So it’s no surprise Democratic and Republican members of Congress across the country and here in Washington seized on Monday’s showdown then shutdown to raise campaign cash. “Leadership is a privilege that House Republicans have done little to earn,” began an earnest email sent out by Democratic Congressman Rep. Rick Larsen of Everett. “This lack of leadership is Jerry Cornfield about to result in a government shutdown.” A few paragraphs later he concludes by asking for “$5, $10 or $25 to show the House Republicans that we’re fed up with their games and distractions. Stand with me, and let the majority party know that they need to earn the privilege of leadership.” Fundraisers for Democratic Rep. Suzan DelBene of Medina struck a more strident note with the freshman congresswoman’s donors. “You’ve seen how Tea Party Republicans are willing to shut down the government and threaten the full faith and credit of the United States to try to get their way — we can’t afford to give them a chance in our state,” reads her email. “We need your help right now to ensure Suzan’s seat stays out of Tea Party hands.”

As they and other members of Congress tried to cash in on the political brawl, a leader of Common Cause urged them to stand down. “One would hope that every member would be so embarrassed by this breakdown that they would voluntarily suspend fundraising,” said Karen Hobert Flynn, senior vice president for strategy and programs for the nonpartisan political reform group. Neither Larsen or DelBene is facing a challenger in 2014. At least not yet. ■■■ Prospects of lawmakers passing a transportation funding package in a special session next month are dimming rapidly. Republican senators are in no hurry to act on a $10 billion proposal put forth by Democrats and they haven’t been for some time. It’s not what’s in it per se, though most members of the Senate Majority Coalition shudder at the inclusion of a 10.5-cent per gallon increase in the gas tax. It’s what’s missing: all of the 10 reforms of state transportation policy offered up by the coalition this summer. Unless and until some of those proposed changes find their way into the proposal, they won’t be in the mood to pursue, let alone forge an agreement. “We’ve got to have some of these reforms,” said Sen. Curtis King, R-Yakima, the coalition’s point-man on transportation. “Not all 10 but at least three or four of

them. If we don’t get a substantial number of the reforms we won’t have agreement on a revenue package because we won’t have enough votes to get it out of our caucus.” King singled out three: streamlining the permit process including rolling back stateimposed rules on environmental protection, which exceed federal requirements; revamping the way the state builds ferries and allowing companies outside of Washington companies to build them; and redirecting sales tax collected on construction projects from the state’s general fund into transportation. None of these are new issues for lawmakers, yet there have been few serious conversations on incorporating them into a final deal. Part of the reason is King and his caucus colleagues are busy traveling the state to solicit opinions on raising revenue and making reforms. Their listening tour wraps up later this month. King makes no predictions what will happen afterwards though he sounds skeptical. “We are trying to move this forward. We are trying to gather information and come up with a package that has the buy-in from the public,” King said. “It is going to be tough but there’s a chance.” 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.

Area Realtors to spruce up area along Issaquah Creek Several dozen volunteers from the Seattle/KingCounty Realtors will convene at the Log Cabin Reach Natural Area along Issaquah Creek on Friday, Oct. 11 for a work party. Working with supervisors from King County Parks, the volunteers will weed invasive species and plant native vegetation among other chores to restore or preserve the habitat within the 118-acre site. Parks officials say this natural area of Issaquah Creek, situated about three miles south of the city of Issaquah, stands out in the basin for its high quality stream habitat. The event marks the seventh year of the Realtors Environmental Council (TREC) project. In past years, regardless of weather, volunteers ranging from age 8 to 85 have cleared non-native blackberries and other invasive vegetation, planted native trees and shrubs, and spread mulch at parks and open spaces around King County. Area residents are invited to join the work party, which is scheduled from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. No experience is necessary and all instruction, tools, gloves and other supplies will be provided. Affiliate members of the Seattle/King County Realtors will host lunch for all workers. Volunteers must pre-register at nwrealtor.com or by calling 425-974-1011. Participants will need to sign the standard Parks Department’s volunteer waiver form.

Samm. Council directs City Manager to study Klahanie for PAA Resolution will give Sammamish footing if Issaquah’s annexation fails, mayor says BY DANIEL NASH DNASH@ISSAQUAHREPORTER. COM

The city of Sammamish has taken its first step toward throwing its hat in the ring for Klahanie if annexation to Issaquah fails. Sammamish City

Council voted unanimously Tuesday to direct the City Manager to study the unincorporated community as a Planned Annexation Area in the upcoming Comprehensive Plan rewrite. The council previously passed a motion in June supporting the commu-

nity’s theoretical annexation into Sammamish. Mayor Tom Odell, Deputy Mayor Ramiro Valderrama-Aramayo and Councilman Don Gerend pitched the merits of a Sammamish annexation at a mid-September county Boundary Review Board meeting (“All sides

SPEND LESS. GET MORE.

have been heard,” Sept. 27). The Board must make a final decision by Nov. 7 on whether an Issaquah annexation will go to ballot in February. But Tuesday’s resolution was the city’s first formal step toward becoming an option for Klahanie. “We’re doing this, frankly, to cover our bases in a sense,” Tom Odell said. If the issue was forwarded to the Growth Management Planning Council, Odell said, Sammamish could be seriously considered as an alternative. “We can get a request on record,” he said. “If for

some reason Issaquah annexation fails, that opens up a new discussion.” Annexation is the process by which city governments bring neighboring communities into their borders. A municipality will identify an unincorporated area as a possible annex. If the city initiates the annexation process, the residents of the area vote to join up or stay out. Issaquah identified Klahanie as a Potential Annexation Area in 1995, before the city of Sammamish existed. In 2002, Issaquah agreed to remove Klahanie from its comprehensive plan, but changed its mind later in the year. In 2005, Klahanie resi-

dents approved a measure to join Issaquah. But they rejected a measure to take on a share of Issaquah’s debt, prompting the city council to exercise its authority to deny annexation. In other council news, a resolution to endorse the Lake Washington School District’s bond and levy funding measures for the February election — totaling more than $1 billion — passed six to one. A motion to approve nearly $2 million in funding for the second phase of Sammamish Landing was postponed. The proposed phase two improvements would have included parking, disability-compliant access to the park and permanent restrooms.

Iss. school board approves levies for February ballot SUNDAY ONLY

OCTOBER 6, 2013 EXTENDED HOURS TO 10 P.M.

PRESENT THIS COUPON & SAVE

The Issaquah School Board approved a four-year maintenance and operations levy and a four-year capital projects/ technology levy at its Sept. 25 meeting. The maintenance and operations levy pays for basic general classroom and operational needs such as special education, curriculum, extra-curricular activities, and staff salaries. If approved, the district would collect between $44 million and $54 million per year from 2015 to 2018. The yearly cost to the owner of a home assessed at $300,000 would be between $705 and $756. The capital/technology levy, to be collected from 2015 to 2018, includes two components: educational technology and repairs for each school, district-wide. If renewed, the district will collect $41.8 million for technology and $10.2 million for repairs over the life of the levy. Cost to the owner of a home assessed at $300,000 would be from $183 to $207 a year.

The technology levy will fund replacement of aging computers, printers, servers, and document cameras; staff training and development of online classes/educational opportunities, among other items. The capital levy would include upgrade of wireless Internet; safety and efficiency software for school bus operations; and continued upgrades to district websites, emergency alert systems, and other e-communications. The board also is considering a oneyear transportation levy that would raise $1.7 million in 2015 to purchase 71 buses to improve the district’s fleet. The owner of a home assessed at $300,000 would pay $27 if the levy is approved. The board is expected to approve the transportation levy proposal at its Oct. 16 meeting after a small change to the ballot language. Voters will decide on the levies in a Feb. 11, 2014 election.

Motorcycle warnings privately installed BY DANIEL NASH DNASH@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Motorcycle warning signs have been installed at the intersection of Issaquah Hobart Road and Southeast May Valley Road as part of a private campaign to reduce intersection collisions in King County. The “Watch for Motorcycles” warning sign was one of four installed in county space by insurance company Allstate as part of its Once is Never Enough campaign.

Issaquah insurance agent Aaron Whitcomb said visibility at the May Valley intersection was “pretty good,” but added that the risks of motorcycle collisions required special attention. “I think their smaller size leads to more accidents and automobiles not seeing them,” he said. The ONE campaign encourages drivers to look left, right and left again for motorcyclists before passing through an intersection. Forty-six percent of fatal multi-vehicle motorcycle collisions from 2006 to 2010 occurred in

intersections, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System. In the city of Seattle, 1,500 motorcycle crashes were recorded between 2007 and 2011, according to the state Department of Transportation. Of those, 710 occurred at intersections. Additionally, the department reported to the Governors Highway Safety Administration 80 fatal motorcycle collisions statewide in the first nine months of 2012 — an increase of 15 deaths from the same period in 2011.

Allstate Insurance installed four motorcycle warnings in King County as part of its ONE campaign.

Skyline High School’s Homecoming game tailgate will be bigger and better than before, featuring more food, vendors and entertainment. Every year Skyline’s Homecoming parade glides down 228th Avenue Southeast, leading into the pre-game tailgate party in front of the stadium. But in past years, according to ASB Vice President Jake Barokas, the tailgate was too popular to keep everyone fed. “We had a few vendors, but it hasn’t been huge,” he said. “And usually we’ll run out of food before it’s over.” So this year, Barokas and organizing partner Dorie Dalzell decided to venture down into the valley and solicit

Do not use cell or landline phones. Do not use anything that might create a spark or has a flame, such a lighting a match or a cigarette.

A hissing sound, blowing dirt or bubbles in a puddle may also indicate a possible natural gas leak. In addition to delivering a foul smell, the pamphlet also reminds customers to call 811 to have underground utility lines located before having any work

Celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month Breast cancer runs deep in my family.

By Jenn Nudelman

reast cancer runs deep in my family. My grandmother died from this disease and I have two aunts who are survivors. I was at my grandmother’s bedside when she lost her battle to breast cancer. She fought it hard. Just two and a half weeks after my diagnosis, I somehow found the strength to walk 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day. I walked the 3-Day again this year, and I was honored to be a part of the Survivor Circle and carry a flag into the Seattle Center field. I also spoke during the Saturday night Camp show. It was a great opportunity to make people aware of the local Komen affiliate and the work we do in the Puget Sound community.

Pears are in season and a coyote got its fill recently at a orchard in Sammamish. Cynthia Jarrett spotted the coyote walking around the family’s orchard, and gathering up the fresh pears that fell to the ground. It would then carry them over to one spot and sit down to eat them. Jarrett said it was amusing to see how difficult it was for the coyote to chew the pears.The coyote munched on the pears about 50 feet from where she and her son were watching. Two neighbors joined them, but the coyote never ran away, Jarrett said. It was more interested in the pears. The orchard is on Northeast Eighth Street. COURTESY PHOTO.

We Support the Fight Against Breast Cancer!

With my family history, I have been as diligent as I can with my yearly mammograms and check-ups. In fact, when breast cancer finally struck, the lump in my breast was so small that it was only detected through a mammogram. When I heard the news from my radiologist, even with my knowledge of my family history, I was shocked. In one way, breast cancer was a blessing for me. I was laid off half way through my breast cancer treatment so, once I started feeling better, I had the time to volunteer for Komen Puget Sound. Although I love my new job with T-Mobile, volunteering with Komen Puget Sound gives me a real sense of joy and purpose in my life. As a volunteer, I dedicate most of my efforts to Komen educational outreach efforts. Seeing from my grandmother what breast cancer can do, I knew I had to help prevent another person having to go through the same experience. It is almost alarming how many people we meet at our outreach events who still do not know how to detect and prevent breast cancer. People say the breast cancer awareness job is done, but that is just not true! So many women put off their mammograms, not realizing a mammogram can save their life. I was at a Pierce County Survivor Conference. A woman made a point of telling me how a Komen grant helped pay for her utilities while she was going through treatment, and what a difference it made for her. She just wanted to say “thank you” to me, to Komen. That day I saw, first hand, the good work Komen does.

REPORTER Q and A | EC alum Alex Foreman Eastside Catholic alum and USC lacrosse player ALEX FOREMAN will be the only local product in the Issaquah-Sammamish area when her Trojans visit Issaquah High School on October 13 to take on Oregon in the first Division I NCAA women’s lacrosse game played in the state of Washington. Foreman was a state champion during her time for the Crusaders and is the first EC alum to play women’s lacrosse at the Division I level. She took some time running between classes to talk with sports reporter Josh Suman about her start in the game, memories from a state title and adjusting to the fast-paced lifestyle of the Southland.

News and notes in sports and recreation

Eastlake boys win three more on course The Wolves stayed perfect on the golf course in 2013, beating Issaquah, Bothell and Woodinville. The win over the Eagles came by 12 strokes at Sahalee behind the a three-way tie for medalist honors at 37. Spencer Weiss, Gabe Lysen and Scott Nielsen all carded a one-over par to help Eastlake to the win. Zack Overstreet, a state competitor last spring, was the low-man for the Eagles with a 40. Sid Raman and Taylor Swingle checked in with 42 for Issaquah. Eastlake followed that win with two more, 186-198 over Bothell and another, 178-233 over Woodinville. Scott Nielsen was the medalist for the Wolves in that win, at Echo Falls, carding a 34 to lead his team to the win. RP McCoy shot 35 and Weiss 36 in the win over the Falcons.

When did you start playing lacrosse, and why?

I started playing in seventh grade. My younger brother started playing and it looked really cool so I wanted to get in on it. What do you remember most from your early days playing lacrosse, when the sport was really starting to grow in popularity in our area? When I was starting I liked it was brand new. I knew I could play, get good at it and then teach other people. In high school I was the only one of my friends that played. I brought 14 friends with me and it became the thing to do. It’s not just playing with select teams, girls you don’t know

from all over the state. It is people you’ve grown up with. You know each other so well and you’re like a family on the team. I think that is part of the reason we won my junior year. SEE FOREMAN, 15

A former member of the Wolves golf team was also greeted with some positive news, as UVLV alum and Sammamish native Kevin Penner earned a spot in the 2013 J.T. Shriners Open at TPC Sumermerlin in Las Vegas. All proceeds from the event benefit Shiners Hospital for Children and the total purse is set at $6 million. Penner, who has been playing on circuit tours since graduating from UNLV this year, received a sponsor’s exemption to the field.

FOREMAN Neary, Eagles look to stay hungry after win, Wolves want to bounce back in Crest Q

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14

BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@BELLEVUEREPORTER.COM

Issaquah (2-2, 1-0) VS. Roosevelt (3-1, 0-1) @ Memorial Stadium, 5 p.m. Friday Issaquah continues its Crown Division slate with a trip to Memorial Stadium, facing a Roosevelt team that stunned them at home last year in a 21-17 game. The 2012 game propelled the Roughriders to the state quarterfinals and left Issaquah lamenting missed opportunities. The Eagles enter this year’s contest off one of the biggest wins for any member of the current team, a 48-28 thrashing of Newport that was not played as close as the final Issaquah senior Jack Neary score indicated. had his best game as an Senior quarterback Jack Neary had what head coach Eagle last week. FILE PHOTO Chris Bennett called, “his best game as an Issaquah Eagle,” throwing four scores to upend the previously unbeaten Knights and help his team gain the inside track to keep pace with perennial favorite Skyline. Roosevelt suffered its first setback of the season last week in a 36-0 loss to the Spartans and all three of its wins came over 3A foes in Seattle Prep, Kennedy and Nathan Hale.

Eastlake (2-2, 0-1) @ Inglemoor (0-4, 0-1), 7 p.m. Friday The Wolves finally get a reprieve from highly-ranked foes with the visit to Inglemoor, after facing a trio of state powers in the past three weeks.

Coach Don Bartel’s squad had its most difficult result of the season last week in a 45-18 loss to Bothell, but looks to have every opportunity to get back on track against the winless Viks. Inglemoor has already been shutout twice, including a 30-0 loss to Woodinville last week.

Eastside Catholic (3-1, 1-0) VS. Seattle Prep (1-3, 0-1) @ West Seattle Stadium, 7 p.m. Friday The Crusaders handled Bainbridge 49-6 last week in the Metro League opener and are back on the road for second of three straight road games this week against Seattle Prep. The Panthers were blanked 42-0 by O’Dea last week and enter the game with only one win, 50-13 over West Seattle. Sophomore quarterback Harley Kirsch tossed two more scores and three players found the end zone on the ground, including 190 yards and two touchdowns from senior running back Henry Jarvis. The EC defense will likely have another chance to post a dominant performance, facing a Prep offense that has scored only 14 points in its three losses, including a pair of shutouts. The Crusaders tallied two sacks, forced and recovered three fumbles in holding the Spartans to only six points.

Skyline (3-1, 1-0) VS. Garfield (1-3, 0-1) @ Memorial Stadium, 7 p.m. Thursday Skyline picked up its third straight win of the year, beating Roosevelt September 27 before facing Garfield this week after the Reporter’s deadline. Senior quarterback Kilton Anderson tossed his first score of the year against the Roughriders and also found the end zone three times on the ground, while junior Chandler Wong added a rushing score. Three players had a sack, including two from senior Josh Wright, and Alex Allen added an interception in the lopsided win.

Your mom was the head coach at Eastside Catholic when you played in high school. What has been the difference playing for a different coach and do you and your mom still talk lacrosse?

A

I don’t know if it’s just because of my mom or because it is college, but there is a lot more strategy involved. Since it is college, you also don’t have to teach new players how to catch and throw every season. It is something we still bond over. She calls me after practice and we tell each other what we’ve done.

Q A

What was the most memorable part of winning the Division II state title at EC?

It was the same day as our prom, so everyone was pumped up for that day in general. The game was against a team we hadn’t played, Kennedy, and we lost to them the year before. I think we just came out with an underdog attitude. We knew if we killed the game it would be a super fun day. The game was more fun than the prom, for sure.

Q A

What has been the biggest difference in the Southern California lifestyle?

The pace of everything here is so fast. Social media, people, everybody just flying around doing a million things at once. The feeling in Seattle was more laid back, not as rushed. It’s really intense here, but you get sucked in. I love it.

Q A

How excited are you to have a chance to come back to the area to play with USC?

I’m pumped. I hope my teammates don’t think I’m from the sticks, though. I can’t wait to see all the girls I played with or coached in camps. I hope they all come check out what it would be like to play at that level. I’m hoping people who come watch just see it is a legit thing. It is growing really fast in Seattle and on the West coast in general. I think a lot of people are assuming if you’re the best on your high school team, you’re good enough to play Division I. That is sometimes the case, but the level of competition is getting so good around Seattle and it has a chance to get even better.

WATER CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 inject storm water into the ground. Called the Lower Reid Infiltration Gallery (LRIG), it is the length of a football field, downhill from the Issaquah Highlands, and just 600-feet from the water district’s well number nine, one of three wells that provides drinking water to the district’s customers. The three wells are within Issaquah’s borders, but the district considers them a regional resource. Infiltration is legal and is widely practiced in Eastern Washington. However the practice in Issaquah has been shut down since 2008 when fecal coliform was detected in nearby monitoring wells. The city has been diverting the storm water into the North Fork of Issaquah Creek, which flows into Lake Sammamish. Lynne said the city stopped the infiltration process because the district filed an appeal on the city’s storm water permit. The city stopped operating the facility and have been monitoring it for five years. “Now we’ve gone to ecology and said here’s the data,” Lynne said. He added that the infiltration system is a state-of-the-art facility and that data is collected on any and all contaminants. The district’s board of commissioners opposes any unilateral action that relates to the infiltration gallery and to the potential contamination of the aquifer which sits below it. The city’s assumption study, currently on its web site, states that if the district cooperates, the cost of the assumption would be $2,015,000. If it is an “adversarial approach,” or a hostile takeover, the cost balloons to $12,500,000. “They’ve been consciously taking this path for quite some time,” said Connie Marsh, a long-time Issaquah resident and business owner who is familiar with the white paper analysis. Marsh said it is not the most cost effective route for the city to take. In addition to the white paper, there are a string of emails on the topic beginning in Oct. of 2011 starting with one from Ervin to Niven. Ervin states “attached is a draft copy of the white paper detailing alterna-

WWW.ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM tives for resuming infiltration at the LRIG.” The next email is from Ritland with Issaquah’s public works, to Lynne, Niven and Ervin saying “Looks good to me! What’s next? Meeting w/ Mayor’s office?” An Oct. 20, 2011 email from Irma Dore with Port Blakely, the developer of the Issaquah Highlands, to Niven, asks him for a copy of the infiltration gallery alternatives that were sent to the mayor’s office. Port Blakely was warned as early as 1999 to pay more attention to its storm water control systems due to concerns that runoff could be dirtying Issaquah Creek and threatening the city’s water supply. Former city council member Hank Thomas said what the city says behind closed doors is different that what its constituents are told. He said the Issaquah Highlands was supposed to mimic the predevelopment conditions as it relates to infiltration. “I never found where they measured pre-development conditions (of the soil),” Thomas said. “All they knew was that water infiltrates. They had no good geological maps.” However, Lynne said geological studies were reviewed by the city and the district, and that they all sat at the same table and agreed it was a good plan. Thomas said the city pushed so much water into the ground from the Highlands that it blew out Camp Creek Hill in 2004 (just south of Swedish Hospital), and created a mudslide that closed the westbound ramp of I-90 at the Sunset Way interchange. Camp Creek is an underground stream that flows into the east and north fork of Issaquah Creek. Thomas said he walked the hill before it let go and water oozed out of the ground. “They had plenty of reasons to know infiltration wasn’t going to work, but they were committed to the development,” Thomas said. With the knowledge that the city had to do something else with surface water from the Highlands, and the majority of the development already platted, they created the Upper Reid Pond, a bioswale, which Thomas describes as a big hole in the ground to capture surface water. He said it’s so big, the city had to get certification to treat it as a dam. The overflow would go into a pipe and

be directed to the infiltration gallery. “All they knew was water went into the ground and you’ll never see it again,” Thomas said. “Within one month it already exceeded capacity.” Well number nine started showing contamination after the city started using the infiltration gallery, Thomas continued. He said the city wasn’t concerned because it’s a supplemental well only to be used in the wet season. The district pumps water from well nine in the winter to charge the aquifer on the plateau — but the big difference is that the water is potable, or drinkable. “With rain like we’ve had now, Issaquah’s storm water is not potable water,” he said, citing motor oil that comes from cars, animal feces and numerous other contaminants that would be pushed into the infiltration gallery should it operate again. “If the infrastructure of (the water district) could be taken over by Issaquah, they would shut down and dismantle well number nine,” Thomas said. “Then you have no evidence of contamination. That’s the motivation.” But Lynne said the reality is, the facility has to be operated by a permit from ecology, which is in the works now. He said the city has nothing to hide. “We will have to continue monitoring,” Lynne said. “Fecal coliform is an indicator of other kinds of coliform. What goes unsaid is that water has to be chlorinated. Well nine is 600feet horizontal and 200-feet deep. It takes less than that to cleanse the water. (There is) a high degree of effectiveness within 30-feet,” he said. “The coliforms were extremely high and went down substantially.” He said the infiltration gallery is not the reason for the assumption. “The rates for the average customers would go down. Service would be better. Permits would come from one place. Time and money is a factor, and opinions vary on the facility,” Lynne said. “If the district is willing to work with the city this could work out very well.”

Matthew West brings ‘Into the Light’ tour to Eastridge Church

Sidewalk Prophets BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

M

atthew West’s first love was baseball, but he couldn’t throw a curve ball. But baseball’s loss has been a gain for fans of contemporary Christian music. West will bring his “Into the Light” tour to Eastridge Church in Issaquah on Oct. 6. Joining him will be Jason Castro, known by many for his season-seven appearance on American Idol. Also joining the tour is the band, Sidewalk Prophets. Originally from Chicago, West has been in Nashville since 1999 when he launched his career as a musician writing songs for other artists such as Rascal Flats, Diamond Rio and Mandisa, an American Idol alumna who is a gospel and contemporary Christian recording artist.

In 2002 he got his first record deal, and has since released six albums. He’s been nominated four times for a Grammy Award in the contemporary Christian category. “I’m thankful to have the best of both worlds on a creative level,” West said. The inspiration for the songs on West’s latest album, “Into the Light,” are stories from real people experiencing real challenges. West West made a simple request on Facebook and Twitter and received more than 25,000 stories from people he has never met, including a soldier in Afghanistan. “It’s like holding a mic to the audience,” he said. “Each one of these thousands of people are stepping into the light and telling their stories.” He received stories from people battling cancer and other health issues. The title track was inspired by a woman named Alice who escaped an abusive marriage. The song is a vibrant pop anthem that exudes hope and celebrates the triumph of the human spirit and God’s mercy. Another song, “The Power of Prayer,” was inspired by a 13-year-old boy who was weary of his parent’s constant fighting and his bad relationship with his dad. “These are anthems for people who are going through difficult times of life and need a ray of light,” West said. “My faith is the driving force of my life.” It’s common for country artists to tell stories through their songs. West said some of his music can be compared to country, but he said his voice doesn’t lend itself to country. “Some singers have a pop flair, some have a country flair — my voice defies categories,” he said. West is a Christian, who feels there is a great deal of junk on pop radio. He said he wants to put something

positive on the radio. Opening the show is a name familiar to American Idol fans: Jason Castro, the blue-eyed, dreadlocked singer/songwriter who placed fourth in season seven. Now 26, he’s married to wife Mandy and they have a 2-year-old daughter, Madeline. He’s been touring for five years, including one tour with pop singer Ryan Cabrera. Castro “Idol was pretty crazy,” he said. Though he grew up around music and played drums all his life, he’d only been singing for a year-and-a-half when he auditioned for the show. “My faith has been a really big part of my life, but I never dreamed I’d be a singer,” he said. Castro is touring on the strength of his contemporary Christian album “Only a Mountain.” Sales have been good, he said, and he’s having a really good year, adding that Christ has guided him through his every decision. And the dreads? He’s had them for nine years. “I have no idea if I’ll ever change it,” he said laughing. “Hair products have changed since high school.” Also on the bill is the band, “Sidewalk Prophets.” Together for 10 years, they have ministered to audiences that total in the hundreds of thousands, from church camps to 20,000-seat arenas. All three acts often perform together in a jam, West noted, hinting that his wife and two daughters might join him on stage. “This tour is unique,” West said. “It’s a more intimate project.” Tickets for Matthew West’s “Into the Light” tour are $15 general admission. The show is at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6. Call 800-838-3006 or visit http://eastridgechurch.brownpaperticket.com for tickets.

Sammamish author’s debut novel explores murder in Delhi BY DANIEL NASH DNASH@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

886185

It began with the ending. Starting in his college days, Sammamish engineer Ravi

Pai kept thinking about a single scene that he knew was the ending of a story. Without giving it away, it was a scene of destruction, impersonal violence and the irony of fate — but it was divorced of all context. “Parts of the story kept circulating in my head,” Pai said “The hard part for me was elaborating on the personal details. I knew the ending, but I didn’t know who these characters were.” Pai set out last fall to flesh out that ending and, eight months later, he released “Bold and Vulnerable in Delhi,” his freshman novel. The end result is a book equal parts fast-paced adult

crime thriller and social commentary on the status of women in Indian culture. The story opens in media res on a murder. Four college-aged women drive into a crowded square of Delhi and pick a young man at random. One woman steadies a rifle and shoots out the window, only to hit an unintended target walking through the line of fire. They flee the scene in a panic while, unknown to them, the police cover up the murder out of convenience. Rewind back several years: We’re introduced to the four conspirators as they begin schooling at St.

Stevens College. Simran, Sweeti and Ritu are the elite scions of wealth, bureaucracy and politics, making fast friends their freshman year. Parminder — a modest student from the lower classes — is an unlikely addition to their influential circle. But, after the others rescue her from a random act of rape, they quickly bring her under their wing and introduce her to a world of Western fashions, values and all-night parties. No matter what, Parminder cannot drown the memories of her attack. She eventually proposes a new thrill to her friends: kill someone.

The Blotter

BOLD CONTINUED FROM PAGE 18

They’re rich and bored and leading lives of quiet desperation. But, digging deeper, each of the main characters wear emotional scars inflicted by men and a patriarchal society. Simran, a socialite and unrepentant hedonist, discovers a former lover is a disturbed predator. Ritu’s love life is held by the short leash of her father’s political ambitions. Sweeti is a gay woman kept in the closet by a conservative society. And, whether they know it or not, they’re all ready to spread their pain around by the time Parminder makes her indecent proposal. “They get sucked into it,” Pai said. “They are all oppressed in some way … and there’s no real outlet for them.” Pai refers to his first novel as a product of his naturally overactive imagination — a trait he said his wife could attest to. A Bangalore native who came to the states in 1997, he had only been to the city of Delhi once. Thus, making it the setting of his book involved a great deal of research. Often, he would pore over online maps to determine how his characters would move from Point A to Point B. He released the finished product on eBook platforms — it’s available on Smashwords, Amazon and Barnes & Noble, among other online stores — to put it out in the world quickly and lend himself the freedom to edit the book at any time. Pai will give a family-friendly reading of the book at the Sammamish Library on Saturday, at 11 a.m. A discussion will follow.

of the report, he smashed in a closet door and threatened to harm his wife. She did not believe he would harm her and did not wish to assist in prosecution; the report was for documentation only. THREATS At 1:40 a.m. Sept. 21, officers were dispatched to reported threats in the woods north of the 22900 block of NE 8th Street. The suspect had reportedly threatened an acquaintance for a perceived lie about his ex-girlfriend’s whereabouts, holding a knife to his throat. He then grabbed his exgirlfriend and cut something off her wrist. The suspect returned to the scene during interviews and was arrested; he disputed holding the knife to the victim’s throat, saying he was five feet away. Two knives were recovered from his person.
