Elderly woman drives car onto an apartment complex in Bothell BY MATT PHELPS


ost people have never driven a car onto the top of a building. So for some bystanders it was a bit surprising to see an 84-year-old woman drive her car onto the top of a Bothell apartment complex on the afternoon of Oct. 22. The woman was in the drive-through at the Chase Bank in downtown Bothell when she lost control of her car. “She drove across the parking lot and through the fence,” said Bothell Police Cpt. Denise Langford. “She went over the embankment. When she came to a stop, her back tires were in the parking lot and her front tires were on the top of the laundry facility of the apartment complex.” The apartment

complex is across the street from Pop Keeney Stadium and next to the back of Seattle Home Appliance. Langford said the Bothell Police Department received the call at 2:45 p.m. and traffic enforcement responded to the accident. A tow truck had to be called to remove the Hyundai from the scene. “Luckily, there were no injuries in this case,” said Langford. The woman submitted to a blood draw to determine if she was intoxicated but the results of those tests have not been released. The only damage at the scene was to the fence and the car. Langford said that these kinds of incidents are rare. “I remember one several years ago when someone drove a car into their mobile home,” said Langford. “You don’t see this all that often.”

Accident highlights need for sidewalks


wo families were irrevocably changed on Oct. 21 and the sad thing is that the type of accident that took place could have been prevented. Kenmore resident Joseph David Humphreys was struck and killed by the driver of a Ford F-150 around midnight on the morning of Oct. 21. He was doing something that most Kenmore residents do daily or weekly - walk on the side of the road. He was just 31 years old. The suspected driver of that vehicle is also a Kenmore resident. Sydney Katelane Jones told police she was trying to light her cigarette when she felt a bump in the road. She looked up and saw nothing. If convicted of felony hit-and-run, Jones family will only be seeing the 24-year-old woman in prison for the foreseeable future. The penalty is up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Two families irrevocably changed in a split second. It is no secret that many Kenmore roads are unsafe for pedestrians. Those pedestrians include kids walking to school, adults waiting for the bus, walking to the drugstore or just walking to a friend’s house. Without sidewalks, pedestrians often get forced into the road by garbage cans, parked cars and other obstructions. Most drivers, from time-to-time, get distracted while on the road. Whether it is driving while sleepy, changing the song on the stereo, tending to children in the back seat or just looking at something out the side window when their eyes should be on the road, we all do it. But doing it in Kenmore might be more dangerous than other cities because of the lack of sidewalks. Kenmore was incorporated as a city in 1998 and has added 13.5 miles of sidewalks during that time. The Kenmore City Council recently passed a 20-year plan to construct sidewalks within the city. While that plan was well-intentioned and fiscally responsible, it is going to take way too long. The loss of a Kenmore resident should be a wake-up call to every person who lives in the city.

The lack of sidewalks was a dominant topic during the Kenmore City Council candidate forum held Oct. 15. Council incumbent Allan Van Ness suggested a possible bond measure to send to voters. The bond measure would add to taxes and would be costly for citizens. Van Ness also stated that it costs $1 million for every mile of sidewalks. It is estimated that it will cost $36 million for the sidewalks. That is no small sum. In comparison, Kenmore City Hall cost $14.4 million. Safety is one of the biggest responsibilities of the city government. Mayor David Baker told the Reporter that the city has put $12 million into the State Route 522 upgrade, in part, for safety concerns. Baker also said that he would consider supporting a bond measure for the sidewalks. Many Reporter readers have written to the paper about traffic safety in the days after the Oct. 21 accident. Kenmore resident Sandy French wrote to the Reporter to remind her neighbors that there are some things that pedestrians need to keep in mind to stay safe while walking and

driving. Many of French’s ideas are common sense things that people do not think about when they leave the house. Always walk facing oncoming traffic so you can see what is coming. Wear light colored clothing while walking at night so drivers can see you. “I have seen and had so many close calls, especially at night when walkers and folks on bikes are virtually invisible,” French wrote. If you go out walking a lot, buy a reflective vest to wear and not just at night. Drivers need to use their regular headlights, not high beams, while driving in the fog or rain. If you have fog lights, use them. Drivers should also obey all the normal rules of the road, such as coming to a full stop at stop signs and crosswalks. And please, watch out for pedestrians. Don’t let Humphrey’s death be in vain. Get involved and let your council members know if pedestrian safety is a priority for you. And if nothing else, stay alert while walking and driving, for everyone’s safety.

Keep your hands off the tree by City Hall Now I am upset. In 1974 I was chair of the Bothell Park Board. The board put a park in the triangle property at the corner of State Route 522 and 527 (Baskin Robbins) in honor of Rich Worthington’s son who was killed in the war. The property was owned by Vern Keener of Keener Meats and donated to the city of Bothell for the Triangle Park. The Lion’s Club put in the drinking fountain, Rich Worthington of Bothell State Bank put up the flag pole and I planted the tree. This was a very special tree with a history. The tree was a blood red maple, grafted by Aire Osterwick and sold to Jack Leamer who owned Rhod-A-Zalea Gardens. I bought Rhod-A-Zalea Gardens and ended up with the tree. I lent the

tree to the Worlds Fair in Seattle in 1963. When I brought it home I called Ron Nardone and we planted the tree in Triangle Park. The tree was healthy; it bloomed every fall bright red. It looked like it was on fire. For years, Tony Van Denacker took cuttings from that tree. He loved that tree. My question is: what is going on? If I had only known, the tree could have been moved and been put somewhere else. I sure hope whoever made that decision is proud of himself or herself. Now let me tell you I planted one more tree in town and it is a weeping Alaska cedar in front of City Hall. I don’t care if you have to build the City Hall around it. Keep your hands off it.

Speed limit on SR-522 through Kenmore reduced to 40 mph BY MATT PHELPS


any things have changed during the past few years through Kenmore and Lake Forest Park around State Route 522. Everything from population growth to tolls on the 520 bridge have increased traffic volumes along the busy arterial. Now, SR-522 will change too. The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) took action on Oct. 22 by lowering the speed limit from 45 to 40 mph. Crews were out replacing signs, which will be adorned with orange flags to alert drivers of the change. “It better matches the condition of the roadway,” said WSDOT spokesman Bart

Treece. “We do speed limit reviews of roadways routinely and it more accurately reflects the conditions.” One of the biggest reasons for the change is the higher volumes of traffic on the road, preventing drivers from going a high rate of speed. Studies on traffic volume and average speed of cars on the road, along with requests from each city, has moved the changes forward. The Kenmore City Council voted to reduce the speed limit last month. But since the road is a state highway, it had to have state approval. “We have been asking them to for some time now,” said Kenmore Mayor David Baker. “Some of us on the council have been trying to do this since 2004.” But some on the Ken-

more City Council would have liked to see the speed reduced even more. “The speed limit through Bothell and Shoreline on SR-522 is 35 miles per hour,” said Baker. “That is the speed that I would have liked to see, but this is a start.” Baker said that for the council it is a matter of safety for Kenmore residents. Just last month a woman was trying to exit from a dental office on SR-522 in the 5700 block and was struck by a Metro bus. The woman had to be airlifted to Harborview Medical Center because it occurred at rush hour and the helicopter ride was the only way to get her to the hospital in a timely fashion. But WSDOT officials cautioned that the road is not dangerous.

“We always look at collisions,” said Mark Leth with the WSDOT. “It is right in range for the three-year average for a higher-volume arterial like this.” And while 40 is higher than the speed limits in Shoreline and Bothell, the stretch through Kenmore is a lot different with fewer stop lights than in Bothell and almost all straight and flat. “It doesn’t travel the same,” said Leth. “At 40 miles per hour it is closer in speed but they travel differently.” Leth said that there has been an increase in traffic on SR-522 since tolling began on the 520 bridge last year but that the study looked at traffic volume increases a lot further back when coming to the conclusion to lower the speed limit.

The speed limit on SR-522 has been reduced from 45 to 40 mph. MATT PHELPS, Kenmore Reporter

“There has been quite a bit of development in that area,” said Leth. But SR-522 is not the only road with a speed decrease. The main thoroughfare in Kenmore of 80th Avenue Northeast, which runs north from Bothell Way, will also see a speed limit reduction from 40 to 35 mph. Those

new speed limit signs will be placed this month. “In recent years, we have seen much additional residential construction, children and increased traffic on 80th and safety has been a big concern,” said Kenmore Councilman Allan Van Ness in a comment on a local Facebook page.

She claims that driv-

ers have begun to use 62nd Avenue Northeast as a shortcut, driving fast on a road that has little room for error. Neighbors are also worried about their kids who stand on the side of the road to wait for school buses. One of the neighbors invited council members out to the site where Humphreys was killed and to walk the road. Krambrink said that Baker accepted the invitation and plans to meet with the neighbors this morning to discuss the issue further.

Some residents emotions got the best of them while addressing the Kenmore City Council on Monday night. About 12 Kenmore neighbors gathered during the regularly scheduled city council meeting to ask their elected officials to take action after Kenmore resident Joseph David Humphreys was hit and killed in their neighborhood on Oct. 22. “We gathered after the meeting and we really could not leave because

we were overwhelmed at the lack of acknowledgement and action that they will take,” said Kenmore resident Stephanie Krambrink. Kenmore Mayor David Baker said that the council shares the neighbors’ concerns. “There is a prescribed procedure that we have to go through to do these things,” said Baker. “I am seriously just as frustrated at how long it takes to do something but it takes time. The council is very worried about safety. This is why we have a concrete

ington State Transportation Improvement Board this summer. Traffic volume increases also impact other roads through the four cities, including the Sammamish River Bridge in Kenmore, which links the neighborhoods of Inglewood and Finn Hill with downtown Kenmore and SR-522. The west span of the bridge was built in 1938 and needs to be replaced. It would cost an estimated $20 million for the project. “I have seen a bridge collapse,” said Inslee, referring to the Skagit River Bridge collapse in May. “And [the Sammamish River Bridge] is a perfect example of a bridge that needs the funding. It is why we need a transportation bill.” Inslee pointed out that the Skagit River Bridge, which was supposed to take six months to re-open, was repaired and opened in just a month. Inslee gave the credit to the new head of the Washington State Department of Transportation, Lynn Peterson, who sat in on the meeting. Inslee said that Peterson is implementing reforms within the department, such as improvements to permitting processes, cutting fat from projects and streamlining maintenance. What the state doesn’t need, said the governor, is

to channel sales tax revenue from the general fund to the transportation fund, as Republican lawmakers have proposed, or removing sales tax from transportation projects entirely. That would mean stripping more money from education, Inslee said, which is a step backward in fulfilling the Washington Supreme Court’s ruling the state needs to invest $3-4 billion more into education. “The first order of business is, don’t dig the hole any deeper,” Inslee said. “There are people in one of the caucuses who suggested that let’s just dig that hole another $400 million deeper and take that money from the general fund that’s generated by sales tax from construction proj-

ects and move that money into the transportation fund. … It’s a scientific principle, once you are in the hole, stop digging.” While the governor said there are various avenues for approving a transportation plan, he doesn’t want to prejudge how the House and Senate will reach its final destination. Closing tax loopholes would be one method of cost savings, said Inslee, using as an example a tax exemption approved for the timber industry that oil and gas companies also are utilizing. The governor painted a bleak picture for the state should a transportation plan not be approved before the Apple Cup, which occurs on Black Friday. In King County, public transportation would be affected first. “The first thing that’s going to hit them between the eyes is the elimination of bus service, and that has an economic toll on our state,” said Inslee. “It makes it more frustrating to get to work in the morning, but it also takes an economic toll on our state. That means companies don’t move here because congestion increases. It means that workers are stuck in traffic, so they show up to work later because they used to be able to take a reliable bus to work. Now, they’re waiting in their car sitting in a traffic jam

waiting to get to Microsoft. It takes economic productivity out of the state.” Inslee said he understands the frustration of King County residents facing potential tolling of the I-90 bridge between Interstate 5 in Seattle and Interstate 405 in Bellevue to make up the $1.4 billion shortfall for completion of the 520 bridge project. He added the collapse of the I-5 bridge over the Skagit River earlier this year highlights the importance of proper maintenance. Tolling I-90 is an uncertainty, and there are several options being considered, including 11 alternatives that would mitigate the impact to Mercer Islanders. Increasing the state gas tax is also a possibility. “They need to talk to their legislators now about this issue,” he said. “And here’s the reason: The more they convince legislators to find a solution that is not tolling, the better off they are. The more they convince their legislators to raise the $1.4 billion for 520 in some other way, which might mean a gas tax, it might mean licensing fees, whatever their other solution is, the less pressure there will be on tolling.” But other means of paying for the 520 bridge, like a gas tax, may not be an easy sell in Eastern Washington.

Jones and her mother then went to Kenmore City Hall, where she turned herself in to police. She told police she was “probably driving a little faster than she should have. She was lighting her cigarette when she felt a bump. She looked up and did not see anything.” Jones continued on to the store where she accidentally hit a light pole. “She got out of the truck and saw the damage. She thought that it was a lot of damage for a little hit,” the documents continue. After returning home she went for a walk to see what she had hit in the road. She said that after hearing media reports that police were looking for a Ford truck “it made sense to her that she was the one.” Jones lived in Arizona from 2011 until March of this year, when she began living with her parents in Kenmore.

The value in appreciating kids

ungrateful. The truth is that kids learn to be appreciative by watching others, especially their parents. As parents, it’s easy to get caught in the day-to-day temper tantrums, arguments and homework struggles, and forget the things you really appreciate about your child or teen. Likewise, kids feel lower self-worth when they are not valued, or frequently reminded of what they need to do, or what they aren’t doing.



erriam-Webster defines appreciation as, “To understand the worth or importance of something or someone; to admire and value, or be grateful for.” So, have you appreciated a child lately? Kids of all ages enjoy compliments, even sometimes difficult teenagers. And kids especially appreciate it when you sing their praises to others. I have heard parents complain often of ungrateful kids, and I have witnessed kids be

Slow down

Parents will find it more difficult to feel appreciative of their children if they obsess on what is done wrong or get stuck in worry over grades, eating right and behaving right. In the moments when you want to tell your child what to do or make a critical remark, stop yourself. Make a conscious effort to think about the things your child is doing well or what you are thankful for about them and how you can express it. As an example, your child spills her snack in the living room where she isn’t supposed to be eating, and you come upon her cleaning up the mess. You have a choice to be angry about breaking the rules, or thankful she is trying to clean it up, or maybe pleased that she got her own snack, or chose something healthy. That doesn’t mean you have to allow your child to break the rule, but you can respond this way, “Thank you for cleaning up your spill, I really appreciate it and that you managed to get your own snack today. I would also really appreciate it if we can keep snacks in the kitchen from now on.” Instead of looking for evidence to justify being angry and critical, look for what can be appreciated in a situation. Here are more examples. Your teen is messy. Might he also be creative or spontaneous, and can you appreciate that? “Jon, I so appreciate how imaginative you are, that’s a great skateboard ramp you built. Could you please put the tools away when you are done with the project?” A young child’s constant need for attention can wear on a parent, but can you appreciate her lovingness? When a child won’t stop talking, perhaps you can appreciate honesty, assertiveness or how he expresses himself. And when a teen is lagging on homework or college applications, perhaps you can appreciate a clean room or extra-curricular activities, like holding down a job. To maximize the ability to appreciate your children, make sure you have downtime.

A HISTORY OF HARD WORK Cung grew up in Vietnam, initially working as a schoolteacher for about five years before joining the Vietnamese military. He served for 21 years, and when the Communists took over the country, he was sent to a labor camp, where he stayed for three years from 1975-78. He then spent about a year performing more labor in one of the country’s “New Economic Zones.” Cung escaped in 1980, and on March 5 of that year, he fled Vietnam by boat. This was followed by seven months in a refugee camp in Malaysia. He arrived in

TO MISS AND BE MISSED When Talman learned of Cung’s retirement, she said she was sad. “He’s a very, very hard worker — very courteous, very polite,” she said. “The residents love him. He’s one of the nicest gentlemen you’ll ever meet.” Larry Marsh, a resident of five years, agreed, adding that Cung is “twice anyone else.” “He’s going to be missed a lot,” Marsh said. Talman said Cung is also able to “relate to (the) residents better than [ more RETIRE page 12 ]

In January 1986, Khanh Cung started his job at Evergreen Vista as a server, setting tables before meals and bringing people their food. Almost 30 years later, the senior living community has gone through a few name changes — first Cascade Plaza and now Redmond Heights Senior Living — and Cung still bustles about the dining room, going from table to table, checking on residents and making sure they have everything they need as they sit down for their meals. But not for long as the Bothell resident will be leaving Redmond Heights and retiring on Monday. “You know, I’m too old,” he said. “I’d like to enjoy the last few years of my life.” And at 85, it has been a long — and full — life so far.

the United States on Oct. 8, 1980. Once he arrived in Washington — the only state he has lived in — Cung attended Lake Washington Institute of Technology for two years and Bellevue Community College (now Bellevue College) for one year. He took classes to learn English as well as bookkeeping. Although his English skills needed work, he said he had some experience with the language before coming to the states. “When I was in the military, I worked with American advisers,” he explained. All of the hard work Cung has done throughout his life has transferred to his duties at Redmond Heights. “He’s a machine. I wish I could clone him,” said Dawna Talman, Redmond Heights’ executive chef and Cung’s supervisor. “I know that the job’s going to get done. I don’t have to tell him what to do. He just knows.”

The 95-year-old said his nickname is “Speedy” because he will know in advance what people want to eat and is always quick and on top of things. “Your oatmeal would be in front of you before you’d hardly gotten

seated,” she said. Mary Jane Brooke, an 81-year-old Redmond Heights resident of about a year, added that Cung “just runs,” which is impressive as not many people their age can move like that. She said she is always happy on Sundays and Mondays because those are the days Cung works. “We’ll just miss his activity,” Brooke said. “He always greets you, asks if you have everything you need…I just know he’s • going to be missed even though he only works two days a week.” She added that because Cung still speaks with a Vietnamese accent, it may be difficult for people to understand him from time to time — especially for those using hearing aids. However, Cung never gets impatient and will repeat himself until people can understand, Brooke said. And while everyone at Redmond Heights will miss Cung, he said he will

miss them, as well. “I’ll miss my friends, my co-workers, my boss,” he said. “They’re so nice to me.”

PLANS FOR THE FUTURE Cung currently lives in Bothell with one of his sons. He has three sons who all live in Washington. His two daughters are living in California, and he visits them every year. From his five children, he has 13 grandchildren, as well. Cung said once he retires he plans to relax.

Northshore Networks earns 2013 School of Distinction award Congratulations to Northshore Networks, a Northshore School District choice program, for being named a 2013 School of Distinction award winner by the Puget Sound Educational Service District. The award recognizes the top 5 percent of schools in Washington state that have made sustained improvements in reading and math over five years. Northshore Networks is one of 43 schools in 21 districts in the Puget Sound Educational Service District region, to be recognized at an awards ceremony Nov. 12, at the Puget Sound Educational Service District office in Renton. School of Distinction awards are granted by The Center for Educational Effectiveness in partnership with the Association of Educational Service Districts, the Association of Washington School Principals,

Washington Association of School Administrators and Washington State School Directors’ Association. Northshore Networks is an individualized, customized and independent learning program for Northshore students in grades 1-12 as an option to the traditional learning environment. Consulting teachers work with parents and students to prepare an individual education plan that includes mandatory attendance at weekly consulting meetings and classes.

NPAC holds annual fundraiser at Cascadia The Northshore Performing Arts Center (NPAC) held its annual fundraising luncheon Friday at Cascadia Community College’s Mobius Hall. “Preliminary numbers for spring for the Arts is just under $8,000 gross,” said Kate Lunceford with the NPAC foundation. Nationally recognized children’s author and Kenmore resident Kirby Larson was the main speaker and connected arts in Northshore schools with social complications far beyond the classroom.

Larson drew upon her experience as both a parent and former Northshore School Director to point out that live theater provides a growing minds with a setting in which to grasp issues and explore solutions, while at the same time, being a witness and participant. The fundraiser allows NPAC to pay for live theater presented in Northshore elementary schools. Last year the luncheon funded 4000 local shows for grade school students. In addition, NPAC books and presents professional theater in the state-ofthe-art theater, located on the Bothell High School campus. Its current season is underway and further information can be learned via the NPAC website. Additional entertainment was provided by the Bothell High School Jazz Choir, under the direction of Sheryl Erickson. The program was emceed by NPAC president Suzette Hart.

Yedlin meets with Bothell soccer players to Sound Off campaign Seattle Sounders FC

player DeAndre Yedlin and AT&T rewarded 30 youth soccer players and their parents from Bothell, Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace last night. The Northwest Nationals youth soccer club won ‘Sound Off,’ a campaign that challenged Washington Youth Soccer players to lead a no texting while driving pledge drive, and spread the word to family, friends and neighbors about the dangers of distracted driving. Yedlin took photographs, signed autographs and met personally with players from the Northwest Nationals – the youth soccer team that drove the most ‘It Can Wait’ pledges. “When it comes to texting while driving, “It Can Wait” is the message that we want to score with soccer players and fans in Washington,” said Sounders FC defender DeAndre Yedlin. “Texting and driving is a serious issue with dangerous consequences.” A movement is accomplished through the voices and actions of everyone, including our kids. That is why the Seattle Sounders FC and AT&T launched the ‘Sound Off ’ challenge. Aspiring to create a social stigma around this dangerous habit of texting while

driving, AT&T and the Seattle Sounders challenged the Washington Youth Soccer organization and its more than 115,000 members and 200 clubs across all parts of the state to get involved, spread the word and encourage their parents to take the pledge to never text and drive. As of today, the campaign has garnered 1,785 pledges to never text and drive. “As a club, Northwest Nationals is a collection of families. Our athletes compete at a high level and, as such, they spend a tremendous amount of time on the road traveling to games and practices,” said Scott Newman, Nationals Director of Coaching. “We encouraged our families to sign the pledge as a way to

help keep our roads safer.” “Texting while driving doesn’t only affect teens. In a recent survey conducted by AT&T, nearly half of commuters admitted to texting while driving which is more than teens,” said AT&T Washington State President Bob Bass. “But our research also shows that speaking up can prove to be successful in stopping these behaviors. In fact, 90 percent of survey respondents said they’d stop if someone in the car asked them to. That is why we are encouraging kids to speak up, raise awareness and encourage driving members of their families to make a commitment to drive focused and distraction-free.”

Northshore School District is developing a Middle Level Advanced Placement Program for fall 2014 that will provide highly capable programs and services for eligible seventh- and eighthgrade students. A Middle Level Advanced Placement Task Force consisting of teachers, administrators and parents, has been formed to lead the work of developing a district plan for implementation that provides rigorous learning opportunities for students. The plan will meet requirements outlined in recent legislation and will be submitted to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction following board approval. To accommodate the selection and appeals process required for the new Middle Level Advanced Placement Program, the administration of the sixth grade ITBS has moved from the typical mid-February date to December 2013. In 2013, the Washington State Legislature determined access to accelerated learning and enhanced instruction for highly capable students is access to basic education. The 2013–14 school year is a transition year for districts to develop a plan for identifying and serving highly capable students in grades K–12. Northshore School District will develop a “clearly-defined written nomination, screening, assessment and selection system using multiple objective criteria” for clearly identifying “the most highly capable” students. For more information, contact Director of Secondary Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Gretchen Schaefer, 425-408-7715.

North Creek Forest awarded Land and Water grant The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) announced $793,030 in grants Monday for three projects, including one in Bothell, from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund. The grant for $43,030 will go towards partial funding to preserve Bothell’s last urban forest, North Creek Forest. The long-awaited completion of the Point Defiance Missing Link in Tacoma will receive $500,000, while the renovation at a public pool in Chehalis that serves

thousands of children each summer will receive the remaining $250,000. North Creek Forest is a scenic woodland home to pileated woodpeckers and black-tailed deer just one mile from Bothell City Hall and within walking distance from school for 9,000 students who could use the forest as an outdoor laboratory. “Without this LWCF grant, we risk losing Bothell’s last urban forest. That would be a tragedy not only for the wildlife which call these woods home, but

also for the community members who walk these paths and the students who use it as an outdoor laboratory,” Jim Freese of Friends of North Creek Forest said. “We’re grateful for partial funding this year, but this calls attention to the need for full, dedicated funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund.” This is the second LWCF grant North Creek Forest has received. These projects represent an investment in Washington’s $22.5 billion outdoor recreation economy and in

the high quality of life that supports our state’s families and businesses. Created by Congress in 1965, LWCF is the nation’s premier federal grant program for conservation and outdoor recreation. The program uses no taxpayer dollars. Instead, $900 million in offshore oil and gas lease revenue is meant to be invested in parks and outdoor recreation opportunities each year. However, year after year Congress diverts a majority of LWCF funds for unrelated purposes.

Lack of full funding for the program has created a huge backlog of unmet need. This year, nine unfunded projects will move to next year’s funding list. “Full dedicated funding for LWCF is essential to ensure that more of these investments are successful in communities across Washington. We thank Senators Cantwell and Murray and Congresswoman Suzan DelBene for their work to ensure protection for our outdoors,” said Joanna Grist, Executive Director of the Washington Wildlife

and Recreation Coalition. This program continues to receive strong bipartisan support. A recent poll by Public Opinion Strategies and Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates found that 85 percent of American voters think their Member of Congress should honor the commitment to fund conservation through LWCF. More than seven-in-ten American voters agree that “even with federal budget problems, funding to safeguard land, air, and water should not be cut.”
