Inslee visits Lake Washington Institute of Technology

W

ashington Gov. Jay Inslee received feedback from students and faculty at the Lake Washington Institute of Technology in Kirkland during a tour of the campus Oct. 3. Inslee visited classrooms and spoke with students and staff in several of the school’s career training programs, including machining, photoshop and interactive media design. He planned to meet with students and teachers in the medical assisting and dental assisting/ hygienist programs but couldn’t due to time constraints. Inslee noted he was surprised to see the machining program has seen “a three-fold increase” of students in the program, partly due to funding for some equipment the Legislature has been able to secure for the school. “It’s been heartening for me to see that the appropriations that we’ve put into the pipeline are getting here and are really expanding capability, and that’s exciting,” Inslee

said. But teachers of the programs said there’s always room for improvement when it comes to staying current in an ever-evolving industry. Mike Clifton, who has been with the machining program for 15 years, is grateful he was able to expand his classroom with help from the Legislature but said he could use additional training to keep up with industry demand. “I’m going to do oneday return [to industry] visits but if there was someway, I would love to go back to work for four months and really get current because you don’t just learn it in one day,” Clifton said. “The new software, how do you stay up to speed on that?” Pablo Wenceslao, a teacher in the school’s Bachelor of Technology in Applied Design (BTAD) program, told Inslee he would like to see new technology and a building for the program. “I think students come here with the notion that this is an institute for technology,” said Wenceslao. “I think we could probably be a little bit [ more INSLEE page 2 ]

William, Hirt vie for EvergreenHealth board seat BY RAECHEL DAWSON rdawson@kirklandreporter.com

Vice chair of the Evergreen Healthcare Foundation Kinnon W. Williams is taking on longtime incumbent Rebecca Hirt for the EvergreenHealth board of commissioners position No. 2 seat this November. Williams said the board needs fresh blood and new leadership for the publicly-elected position. “I have a different background and I would be replacing someone whose entire career has been at the hospital,” said Williams, who lives in Bothell and has raised more than $30,000 in cam-

paign funds, according to the Public Disclosure Commission. “I think we need somebody with a wider range of experience.” Williams is an attorney at his selfowned company Williams & Williams, PSC and has served as an elected Northshore Utility District commissioner for 14 years. But Hirt, who lives in Kirkland and has raised around $1,800 for campaigning, said her nearly 30 years of experience on the board of commissioners proves her commitment to the health of the EvergreenHealth community. “My commitment to the health

more at par with what the industry is expecting us to have.” Wenceslao said additional technology, such as a 3D printer, new software and funding for students to travel and experience the designing world would help students in their future. Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, D-Bothell, was among many on the tour because she believes “there is a pipeline all the way from kindergarten to grade 12 and into higher education.” McAuliffe said Lake Washington Institute of Technology develops hands-on project-based learning, which is important for many learners who may be the first to go to college in their family. Institute President Amy Goings said she’ll work with the governor to create additional return-to-industry opportunities for her faculty. “There is certainly more work that we can do to serve more students and certainly we hope to work with the governor and the Legislature to make those key investments in higher education so that we can continue to serve more students - that’s really the core of our business here,” Goings said, adding her thanks to the Legislature for restoring some of the higher education cuts. Earlier that afternoon, Inslee also toured Bellevue College and Digipen in Redmond.

EDITORIAL

Time to end the government shutdown

P

resident Obama made the right decision recently 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 not only is behind 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.

Labeling costs will get passed on at checkout counter I believe that folks should have the information they need to make useful health decisions. I am proud of the achievements made in the field of food inspection in recent decades both here and abroad, and the positive impacts they have had on consumers worldwide. I believe everyone deserves access to good nutrition regardless of income bracket, and I value a transparent system to ensure this need is met. That is why I am voting “no” on I-522. I’ve read the seven-page initiative and understand the implications if this were to be made law in our state. The scientific community widely agrees that genetically engineered crops pose no greater threat to public health than their non-genetically engineered counterparts. (It may be worth noting that BPA, bisphenol A, has been shown to increase the risk of obesity, certain neurological disorders, and some cancers, yet is widely used in canned goods at many retailers supporting the “Yes on I-522” campaign.) The added costs associated with labeling genetically engineered crops hurts small farmers, and the costs will undoubtedly get passed on at the checkout counter. I-522 won’t make food safer for Washingtonians, it will just make grocery shopping harder for folks who already can’t afford to buy organic.

Goal setting during parent, teacher conferences

Dear parent, First of all, I am sure you are not alone in feeling a little anxiety during conferences. I think all of us - teachers, parents and children - feel like it is this big important meeting where we are going to get all this big news about the child’s learning. And possibly, that is so, but I am hopeful that most parents and teachers communicate often about a child’s progress and don’t just leave it for conference time. Knowing this, goal setting conferences are coming up for many of us and can be a wonderful opportunity to teach your child a life skill of setting goals. This is not a time for you to discuss with the teacher other concerns or issues you or your child is having. I recommend scheduling another time for this talk without your child. Most teachers are more than happy to accommodate. Goal setting conferences are just this. As a team with the teacher, you are able to talk with your child about their strengths, areas where they may need to improve and set goals to work on all year long. This is so valuable and important work for lifelong learning. Here are a few tips to make a goal setting conference successful: • Talk with your child beforehand. Preparing yourself and your child by discussing areas of strengths and areas where they would like to work on beforehand helps the

writing folder at home. Create for them a space for writing and help make it a daily routine at home where writing is integrated for real-life purposes, such as thank you notes or in a diary, which will allow for daily practice. Support these goals and post them somewhere where you and your child will not just forget about them. These are just a few tips. Remember making

goals is often the easy part. The hard part, as we all know, is following through. Possibly, it is a time in life where we all need goals. The family could sit down together and make goals together. Or, if you already have goals, share them with your child. As your child’s first and most important teacher, “model the way.”

Mrs. Joy Brooke is the first and most important teacher of her 6-year-old son and 4 year-old daughter. She resides in Kirkland with her husband and two children.

From, Anxious parent

conference run more efficiently. Discuss with your child what a goal is and why they are important. Share with them the goals you have made in your life and continue to make and work toward. Most teachers will send home information about the goal setting conference before the conference and will be more specific. Some teachers like a child to focus on two academic goals (such as reading and math) and a behavior goal (like raising your hand), while other teachers choose just one goal for each child to really focus on throughout the year. • Before and during the conference, listen to your child. The child’s input in these conferences is just as important as the teacher’s and parent’s. Yes, maybe they are already good at math but want to be even better. It is OK to have a goal that improves their strengths. If they are set on working on something, allow them to do this. Why just focus on their areas of improvement? Research shows focusing on people’s strengths actually helps improve overall performance. • Make sure goals are measurable. Too often we set goals that are hard to meet because we don’t know when we met them. For example, “By the end of second grade I want to be a better reader,” does not allow us to know what “better” means. A more effective goal would be, “By the end of second grade I want to be reading the ‘Box Car Children Series’ with fluency and comprehension.” This is measurable. • Make sure you state how you will help your child meet these goals at home and follow through. For instance, if your child’s goal is “I want to be able to read and spell the 100 high frequency words correctly by the end of the year,” maybe you post these by your child’s desk or even inside their journal or

D

ear Mrs. Brooke, I am used to a traditional parent/teacher conference. It seems they do things differently now and we are invited to a “goal setting” conference. They are coming up in October where the teacher, my child and I sit down and make goals for the coming year. Are there any things I should remember to keep in mind during these conferences and if my child’s there, how can I ask questions of the teacher about my child’s learning?

ogy, kids today have so many options: they can surf the Internet, play video games, go on social media websites, watch TV, etc. Despite all these websites and games, kids have to learn to manage their screen time. To learn about the technology habits of local middleschoolers, I asked 10 kids from my neighborhood and school to fill out a survey.

In this anonymous survey, only half of the kids who responded said that their parents knew what they were doing online and supervised their use of the Internet. None of the kids had Facebook accounts, but the majority had at least one online account. Seven of the 10 kids said they were allowed on social networking sites. Fortunately for parents, 100 percent of the kids said their parents knew about the websites they had accounts

Community

The lively presentation will focus on how to approach use of technology with our young people, to understand the current risks posed from technology and social media like Facebook and Twitter. Leitch will provide ideas on how to approach these issues with your child and to engage in a meaningful discussion. Safe practices and supervision will be reviewed as well as the role of schools and the legal limits they currently face. A primary goal will be greater understanding and empowerment as a parent in an age when young people seem to embrace technology

better than adults and limits can be hard to establish, let alone enforce. The same presentation will be repeated on four different nights at elementary schools around Lake Washington School District to give more parents an opportunity to attend. Admission is free. No RSVP is required to attend. • Peter Kirk Elementary (Kirkland) – Oct. 17, 7-9 p.m. • Redmond Elementary (Redmond) – Oct. 24, 7-9 p.m. Charles Leitch is a Founding Principal of Patterson Buchanan Fobes & Leitch,

Youth CyberSafety and the Risks of Social Media With more affordable smart phones and the growth of social media like Facebook and Twitter, everyone is getting connected. Yes, it is exciting but how do you protect your children when they participate? Not just from predators but from bad decisions that can impact their lives for years to come? How do you even talk to them about it, let alone understand it? The Lake Washington PTSA Council, with support from the Lake Washington School District, has scheduled youth cyber-safety presentations for parents that will help answer those questions and more. These presentations, given by speaker Charles Leitch, are titled, “Youth Cyber-Safety and the Risks of Social Media – What Every Family Needs to Know.” The same program was offered last spring to parents around the district.

Knorr said. Although half of the kids surveyed said their parents don’t always pay full attention to what they do online, kids understand that there are rules. As one boy said, “My parents trust me to use my good judgment.” Parents struggle to find the right approach to supervising kid’s use of the Internet. Noelle Beams, a Kirkland parent said, “There are so many things to do beyond watching television and sitting in front of a computer.” Beams encourages her 10-year-old daughter, Sophia, to make good choices by limiting her screen time to 20

The survey indicated that kids spend two-and-a-half hours per day using technology unrelated to schoolwork. Based on the survey results, more of that time is spent playing video games than surfing the Internet. In an article for Common Sense Media, Caroline Knorr suggests that kids should set a timer reminding them to take a break. “Most games don’t have built-in endings and are, in fact, designed to make kids play as long as possible,”

Residents are encouraged to prepare for flooding Kirkland’s drainage system has been designed to

hold and carry water during storms to prevent flooding. However, heavy storms may exceed the system’s capacity and some flooding may occur. There are over 12,000 storm drains in Kirkland. Leaves and debris can block rain water from flowing into storm drains and often cause localized flooding. Flooding can cause safety concerns and property damage. Kirkland residents and businesses are encouraged to take measures to prevent flooding and flood damage: • Clear leaves from storm drains • Do not rake or blow leaves into the street. Place leaves in yard waste bin or compost. • Before, during and after a storm, check storm drains near your home or business and make sure they are free of debris. • Use a rake to remove debris from storm drains and gutters. Place this material in a yard, trash or recycling bin. • Do not remove the grate from a storm drain. This does not unclog the drain and creates hazardous conditions. •Call Public Works Maintenance at 425-587-3900 if flooding is severe and you are unable to clear the storm drain. Kirkland residents and businesses that have previously had or almost had

flooding are encouraged to have a supply of sandbags on-hand as a preparedness measure. Two self-service sandbag filling stations are available through April 30, 2014 and are accessible daily, 24 hours. Sand and bags are provided at no cost to Kirkland citizens and businesses; however, citizens must bring their own shovels. Kirkland’s sandbag filling stations are located at: Public Works Maintenance Center parking lot at 915 Eighth St. and the Juanita Beach Park parking lot (south of Juanita Drive) at 9703 NE Juanita Drive.

Back to school but still remembering Kiwanis Camp Casey also a member of North Central Kiwanis Club. She does an amazing job of overseeing all aspects of the camp organization and administration. She first volunteered at Camp Casey in her teen years through her high school Key Club. She met her husband, Paul, while volunteering and they both give credit to Camp Casey for helping them select their career paths. Both of their children were counselors in their teens and now volunteer each year. Williams said, “We work under the auspice of the Kiwanis International Mission Statement: ‘Serving the Children of the World’ and Kiwanis Camp Casey exemplifies the very best of Kiwanis. It provides an incredible, life changing week for the campers and their families. Most of our campers are not able to experience typical overnight camps. Kiwanis Camp Casey allows an incredibly fun, life changing experience and along the way our campers learn confidence, indepen-

Parents are given a much needed respite and the opportunity to watch their child bloom as a result of the Camp Casey experience.” In the midst of all the excitement at “camp” you will find members of the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland as part of the volunteer family. The club has participated at the camp for the past seven years doing a variety of volunteer jobs. There are about eight volunteers from the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland that help out each year.

Mark Shinstrom, past president of the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland says, “It is a wonderful experience to interact with these kids, because that is what it is all about – the kids.” If you would like more information about Kiwanis Club of Kirkland, contact Matt Gregory, secretary at (206) 851-5585 or visit the website at www.

here is a chill in the air and the days are getting shorter. School buses are back on the roads and the sounds of children laughing on the playgrounds can be heard all around. Yes, school has started for another year. However, to a group of about 90 children in the Greater Puget Sound Area, the smiles are still on their faces and the love is still felt in their hearts from the experience they had at “camp.” These are the kids of Kiwanis Camp Casey. This camp is a special place for children with physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spin bifida, congenital limb disorders or childhood spinal cord injuries. These children between the ages of 6-17 have the opportunity to spend a week with other kids with disabilities, being able to “just be themselves” and make friends that will last a lifetime. For them, it is a week to engage in typical summer activities – some-

thing many of these kids don’t have the opportunity to do except at this camp. There are counselors assigned to assist the campers and there is always a lot of one-on-one time and attention given to any special needs of these kids. These counselors are young people ages 16–25. Many of them have chosen their lifetime careers based on the experiences they have had at Camp Casey. Some of them return year after year to be part of this heartwarming experience. After hearing the campers and the volunteers talk about camp, it is easy to see what a truly amazing adventure this is for everyone. Some of the campers have attended numerous times and they tell how this camp has changed their lives and how they look forward to it all year. It is staffed with nurses, counselors, cooks and other volunteers – all donating their time to be with these kids during their week at camp. Barb Williams has been the director of Camp Casey for six years and is

which also oversees all fundraising. This camp is fully funded so it is free of charge to these kids and has been for 75 years. This is due to the generosity of the North Central Kiwanis Club, Seattle, its donors, foundation grants and employee matching funds. The camp leadership team is responsible for raising an average of $45,000 annually to keep the camp running. This covers renting the facility from SPU, food, transportation, insurance for that year, along with other expenses. In addition to the funds the club receives from its community, they also sponsor a yearly dinner/ auction. This year it will be held on Nov. 16. The theme will be “A Night of Mardis Gras” and together with dinner and an auction, there will be pictures and testimonials from the campers and their families. For more information about the dinner/auction, volunteering or how to make a donation to Camp Casey, visit www.campcasey.org.

Legislators discuss right-to-work, transportation, workforce and more test site at Grant County Airport near Moses Lake could see the addition of 6,746 jobs. One issue that the Legislature did not pass in the 2013 session was a multi-billion dollar transportation package that would invest in road and bridge infrastructure, public transit, rail capacity and rural improvements. These projects would improve traveler safety, fix roads, preserve bridges for years to come and reduce the cost of transporting products and services benefitting both the public and business. All three legislators doubted that Gov. Jay Inslee would call a special session to hammer out details. Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance Executive Director Melanie Jordan expressed disappointment, “In order to be globally competitive, we need to be able to move our goods and services throughout the state. A transportation bill is essential.” As Boeing cuts jobs in Washington and buys land in the south, Aerospace executives like JC Hall of Esterline Hytek Finishes wondered what the Legis-

garding unmanned aerial vehicle issues was one of the more interesting pieces of legislation that he had seen. The industry presents a $1.3 billion opportunity for the state, if Grant County can become one of six Federal Aviation Administration test site locations. Washington is home to a number of unmanned aerial vehicle manufacturers, including Insitu, a Bingen, Wash. company that went from three employees to more than 700 in about 10 years. “Unmanned aerial vehicle’s provide a burgeoning opportunity for the state of Washington if we can address people’s concerns and fears,” Springer said. “We can’t let this opportunity slip by.” The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International estimates that the industry could add 100,000 jobs and $81 billion in economic impact nationally by 2025.

ton.” However, he admitted that the Legislature didn’t have a great record of refereeing employeeemployer relationships. During the event, the legislators noted that Washington’s aerospace presence is diverse. “There is an enormous sector beyond Boeing,” Springer said. “Everything we do in the aerospace industry can’t be Boeingcentric.” However, what is good for Boeing seems to be good for much of the aerospace community, he said. The legislators pointed to increased state funding for higher education, STEM, and workforce development programs, plus funding for aerospace training programs that benefit everyone in the industry. Springer said passage of a tax exemption for refurbishing aircraft was an important achievement this year that benefits companies like Kirkland’s Greenpoint Technologies, Everett-based Aviation Technical Services and others. The tax provision, proposed to legislators by Aerospace Alliance members at the 2012 Legislative Aerospace update, removed the required sales tax and allows these companies to be more competitive as a supplier in the global marketplace.

Sen. Paull Shin, DEdmonds, and Reps. Larry Springer, D-Kirkland, and Bruce Chandler, R-Granger, answered questions from event moderator Bob Uptagrafft of Mukilteobased Impact Washington, as well as the aerospace audience. Legislators discussed issues, including right-towork issues, transportation, STEM education, workers compensation reform, unmanned aerial vehicles and Washington state’s budget for marketing aerospace resources. Scott Hamilton, an aerospace analyst from Issaquah-based Leeham Company, kicked off the forum with a tough question about the legislators’ views on right-to-work, a policy that would allow workers to opt in or out of union membership. Hamilton pointed out that Washington faces competition for aerospace jobs from southern states and noted that their right-towork status made them attractive places for Boeing and Airbus to do business. Springer said he opposed right-to-work laws and said, “I don’t believe where Boeing builds its planes is based on whether we’re a right-to-work state. Boeing will go wherever the workforce is trained and we better not lose sight of that.” Shin agreed. Chandler said, “Relationships with employees and employers is changing. If either side fails to realize that, they are doing a disservice to Washing-

The Pines at Totem Lake sell for $8.8 million A 29-unit luxury apartment complex in Kirkland’s Totem Lake neighborhood has sold for nearly $8.8 million. An affiliate of Pathfinder Partners, LLC, a San Diego-based real estate private equity firm, sold The Pines at Totem Lake to a local private buyer for $302,587 per unit. The sale represents the highest price per unit paid by a private party in the Kirkland market, according to the CBRE Group, Inc. Steven Chattin and

Mitchell Belcher of CBRE, Inc. represented the seller in the transaction. Strong job growth is www.nw-ads.com driving multi-family demand and rental growth in the Pacific Northwest. “Sub 100-unit apartment properties are attractive to investors who are aggressively pursuing a position in the region, “said Chattin. “Newer construction properties such as The Pines at Totem Lake (built in 2008) are well positioned for sellers to take advantage of market appreciation.” The Pines at Totem Lake, located at 12411 NE Totem Lake Way, is situated just south of the EvergreenHealth main campus and adjacent to the Totem Lake Malls. Each unit comes equipped with a private balcony, fireplace, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, 10-foot ceilings and walk-in closets.
