A more consistent education with Common Core New standards provide more rigor and evens the playing field for students nationwide

SAMANTHA PAK spak@redmond-reporter.com

When a student moves from one school to another, one of the biggest adjustments he or she must make — aside from meeting and making new friends — is academically. Their new school may be covering a topic the student has already learned or they may not be ready for as the topic may be more advanced than what they have learned up to that point. This issue is magnified when a student moves states. “How much would he or she have to make up or how much is he or she ahead?” asked Nathan Olson, communication manager for Washington’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). So, in an effort to provide students throughout the country with a more consistent education, 45 states

— including Washington — have adopted a Common Core of standards for English/language arts and math.

AN EVEN, DEEPER, PLAYING FIELD

Olson said in addition to providing a more consistent education for students nationwide, one of the goals of the Common Core — which applies to grades K-12 — is to help students be college and career ready after high school. “The learning is a lot more rigorous,” said Shannon Leonard, who teaches second grade at Horace Mann Elementary School in Redmond. She said with the new standards, students need to think more deeply about what they are reading and pull evidence from the text to show how they arrived at their answers. Leonard, who has been teaching for 15 years, admits that this

In an effort to help advance the global fight against cybercrime, Microsoft Corp. has created the Microsoft Cybercrime Center. The center opened last week and is located on the tech company’s Redmond campus.

Within the center is a Digital Crimes Unit (DCU), which is made up of an international team that works with industry partners to help create a safe digital world. “The team applies legal and technical expertise to keep the Internet safer for everyone by addressing malicious software crimes, IP crimes or technology-fa-

cilitated child exploitation,” said Bonnie MacNaughton, assistant general counsel for the DCU. “The center’s tools and technologies will enable DCU to more effectively work with partners to fight cybercrime.” MacNaughton, who has worked on piracy-related issues at Microsoft for 12 years, said the Cybercrime Center brings together

people with different expertise from different industries — ranging from engineers to investigators to lawyers — and equips them with “the best tools and technology available.” She added that having experts in various areas under one umbrella makes it easier for them to work together to eliminate cyberthreats [ more CYBERCRIME page 7 ]

Sound Transit’s East Link extension in Redmond is in its pre-final design phase and the agency is currently seeking public input to affect the final outlook for the project planned to go online in 2023. Redmond residents brought that desired feedback to an open house in Bellevue on Tuesday and got a look at what Sound Transit has in store for its Overlake segment, which includes construction of two light rail transit sta-

“There’s a lot of people in Bellevue, and we wanted them to have access,” he said. As the city looks at infrastructure improvements to follow along with transit development and economic growth, there also are plans to link the 520 Trail to one at Northup Way, said Tomac. “We’ll have a continuous link, basically from Redmond to (the University of Washington) when this thing is all done,” he said. Sound Transit also is working on a funding agreement with Microsoft for the pedestrian bridge at the Overlake Transit Center, which will provide better connectivity for its Redmond campus. Residents questioned Sound Transit’s design

tions and corresponding pedestrian bridges that will cross State Route 520 and eventually be owned and maintained by the city. “We want to understand changes you want us to consider or things you like or don’t like about the current design,” said Chad Zettle, Sound Transit architect. Arnold Tomac, chairman for the City of Redmond’s pedestrian bicycle advisory committee, said the city is working on a funding agreement with Sound Transit to pay for the pedestrian bridge at the Overlake Village transit station, which also will allow for bicycle traffic. Having a bridge there was deemed crucial for crossing SR 520 and keeping cyclists away from 148th Avenue Northeast, he said.

for parking, which would expand parking at the Overlake Village station at 152nd Avenue Northeast and only make 320 spaces available in a garage to be constructed at the Overlake Transit Center at Northeast 40th Street. Some said they felt demand will be higher and the agency should plan for more parking levels within the garage. Sound Transit also is seeking feedback on how the garage should look, said architect Debora Ashland. Where parking is currently at the Overlake Transit Center there will be a bus loop added with Microsoft using its shuttle service there, as well. When construction begins, likely in 2016, neither bus nor Microsoft’s shuttle services will be disrupted as they will be allocated to temporary facilities, said Zettle. The Overlake Transit Center has been designed to include one platform between the east and west light rail tracks while separate platforms will be used at the Overlake Village station. Canopies will be incorporated on the bridges, at the platforms and over ticket vending machines. A screen wall system also is planned to provide a barrier between SR 520 and the Overlake stations, said Zettle, and Sound Transit is now working with the state transportation department to make sure its landscape design fits state requirements along the freeway. Sound Transit is seeking ideas about what to name the two transit stations, which should be reflective of the neighborhoods where they will be located and no more than 30 characters in length. Rod and Linda Carr moved to Redmond in 1979, before SR 520 even existed, and said they are great supporters of Sound Transit in both its bus and light rail services. While they agree with residents who said more parking will be needed, they can’t wait for the East Link extension to be completed. “It’s unbelievably cheap and it’s unbelievably fast,” said Linda Carr, adding of the 2023 launch date, “It’s a shame it will take that long, but I guess that’s what it is.” Overlake segment design information is planned to be published sometime next week, where residents may also provide comment at www.soundtransit.org/ eastlink.

Premium Wine & Spirits store Redmond Lights, central connector closes doors on Redmond Way grand opening on tap for Dec. 7 anystrom@redmond-reporter.com

Wednesday was the final day of business for Premium Wine & Spirits on Redmond Way. From 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., customers filled up on liquor at discount prices, which the store put into play last week. “It’s not a viable business under the current climate,” manager Peggy Binckley said about the closure. “Seventeen percent of our gross goes to the state. That’s a huge chunk of our gross — we just can’t do it.” Co-owners Jeff and Michael Roh took over the store at 16389 Redmond Way in June of 2012 following the passage of Initiative 1183 when the state ceased liquor store and liquor distribution operations. Jeff bid $281,660 in a state auction in April of 2012 to win the rights to the store. The state turned the building into a liquor store in April of 2010.

Lehtinen’s case setting hearing continued to Jan. 23 STAFF REPORT

Eric Emil Lehtinen, a 37-year-old Redmond resident who is accused of injecting his 4-yearold son with heroin, had his case setting hearing

Binckley noted that the competition from grocery stores also selling liquor is tough to handle. “They raise the price of everything else to mark down the liquor,” she said. “I have nothing else to raise the price on.” Binckley also feels grocery stores have an unfair buying advantage in that they can purchase more volume at a lower price than the liquor-only stores. “It’s not an even playing field,” she said. “They (the small stores) don’t have the buying power,” Liquor Control Board spokesman Mikhail Carpenter said in an Oct. 23, 2012 Reporter story. “The prices are determined by the distributor.” Two months ago, the Rohs said they would close the store this month, according to Binckley. She said customers aren’t happy about the closure. “They’re devastated, because I carry product that no one else carries,” said Binckley, noting that one example is Ararat Armenian brandy.

scheduled for Nov. 14 continued to Jan. 23, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s office press secretary. Lehtinen pleaded not guilty to the charge of first-degree attempted murder at his arraignment on Oct. 10 at the King County Courthouse in Seattle. Lehtinen’s son was released from Seattle Children’s Hospital last month. The man remains in

the King County Jail in Seattle with bail set at $3 million. If convicted, he could face at least 15 years in prison. On Sept. 24, Redmond police and fire personnel responded to the house in the 14100 block of Northeast 72nd Street at 11:45 a.m. after receiving a 911 call from the boy’s mother, Saradia Lehtinen, who had come home to find her husband and their son breathing but unconscious.

Redmond Lights, which celebrates the city’s cultural diversity with traditions, activities and fun for all ages, will take place from 4-8 p.m. on Dec. 7 at the City Hall campus, 15670 N.E. 85th St. The free event will feature the traditional luminary walk, tree lighting, kids’ activities and live music performances. New this year will be the grand opening of the Redmond Central Connector (RCC), the Marriott Merry-Go-Round, ice sculpture, reindeer

and other winter holiday celebrations. Redmond Town Center will have music, a carousel and more. The RCC grand opening will take place at 6:30 p.m. near ERRATIC, public artist John Fleming’s massive sculpture of metal, glass and interactive light. The new RCC trail runs from the Sammamish River Trail to the Bear Creek Trail, parallel to Cleveland Street and Redmond Town Center. This one-mile paved trail is intended as a key

destination in downtown featuring integrated art and landscaping designed by The Berger Partnership. The RCC, when fully completed, will accommodate thousands of trail users a day, attracting bicyclists, pedestrians and other users from throughout the region. The direct access into Redmond’s downtown district creates greater access to experience amenities and local businesses. For more information, visit www.redmond lights.com.

Making choices, speaking out in Washington, D.C. On the morning of Nov. 13, I had the choice of sleeping in another hour, because I was still on West Coast time, or getting dressed and going to Pete’s Diner in Washington, D.C. I decided to get up and get dressed. Around 7:50 a.m., I was faced with another choice. Only this one required more than just willpower. House Speaker John Boehner (ROhio) had just walked in and ordered his breakfast. I was faced with a choice. To speak or not to speak? In these moments before making my choice, I was filled with anxiety, uncertainty, but overall a heavy fear. But I had made my decision. I, along with Carmen, shared my story with Speaker Boehner. Following this conversation, my day was filled with interview requests, and again I was faced with the choice; to speak or not to speak? I spoke. In those moments before the camera went on or I picked up the phone, I was again filled with anxiety, uncertainty and fear. My trip to Washington, D.C. was a blessing in disguise. I expected to go to D.C., just talk to my representatives as I’ve done before, make some noise, try to bring attention to the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) and then head home. While I was in D.C., I got to meet Civil Rights veterans Gwen Gamble, Deborah Smith, Jaylen and Jayslet Loya. Men and women who, as children, had taken part in the Children’s Crusade in 1963 in Birmingham, Ala., and had been arrested because of it. My trip to the United State’s capital allowed me to connect with other youth, from children to teens, who could relate to my Jenni Martinez

struggles, my worries, my triumphs. My extended family and community grew and now I have allies from all over the United States. I was able to speak to my representative Congresswomen Cathy McMorris Rodgers and let her know that immigration reform has to happen now. Families can’t wait, students can’t wait, I can’t wait. We’ve waited long enough. I was able to meet with Congresswoman Suzan DelBene and talk about her support of immigration reform. Throughout my trip to Washington, D.C., I was faced with choices, all concerning the one thought, to speak or not to speak? This D.C. trip has only reinforced the idea that courage and bravery are only present when fear, anxiety or uncertainty is. I don’t like talking in front of people; I don’t enjoy approaching intimidating politicians and sharing something personal. But this movement isn’t about me — there is no room for working inside your comfort zone and sometimes uncomfortable things have to be done. If you have the privilege to be in-

volved, why wouldn’t you? This D.C. trip has taught me that you can’t bank on the word of one man. Boehner is only one man. This doesn’t stop at Boehner. Here in Washington, we’re looking for the leadership of our representatives such as McMorris Rodgers, Doc Hastings, Jaime Herrera Beutler and Dave Reichert. There is tremendous support for comprehensive immigration reform amongst the people of Washington, and we’re holding them accountable as representatives of our people. My journey to D.C. and everything that happened while I was there taught me that the millions of human lives are more important than any fear or challenge any politician could ever give me. This movement isn’t going to stop any time soon. We’re going to keep on being loud, we’re going to keep on fighting. We are here, and we are not going anywhere.

Response to Lake Washington School District letter Superintendent Traci Pierce offered a rebuttal in the Nov. 15 Reporter to my previously published letter (Oct. 11, Reporter) criticizing the Lake Washington School District’s policy of tearing down and replacing our schools instead of modernizing them as promised. My letter also objected to spending hundreds of millions of dollars more to do so, using money that could have been better used to modernize the rest of our schools and provide for growth. We spent more than $65 million more to rebuild Lake Washington High School than to modernize it. I asserted that we could have built six new elementary or three new junior high schools to handle growth with that money by state standards (al-

lowable area and cost allocations). Pierce argued that wasn’t possible because the district spends up to twice as much money for new construction and requires much more space than the state allows. She didn’t point out, however, that it would still have been possible to build two new elementary schools or most of a new junior high to handle growth with that $65 million, even at twice the state standards and with all the extra space the district requires. Or that the money could have been used instead to modernize several other of our buildings still waiting their turn to be replaced. Pierce stated that “new in lieu” studies were made to estimate the cost of remodeling versus the cost of new schools. Actually, these estimates were required by the state to support the district’s applications for state assistance to build new schools instead of modernizing

them. State support for modernization is restricted by state law to major remodeling of existing structures. In order to qualify for new construction instead of modernizing an existing building, the district must show that remodeling would cost more than a new building. A review of several of those estimates for remodeling shows that they were loaded with several millions of dollars for non-remodeling items. Included were such items as additions, site development, site utilities, off-site work, demolition of the existing structure and so on. The estimate for remodeling Rose Hill Junior High included, among other non remodeling items, a cost of $12.8 million for additions, $4.1 million for site development and $1.7 million for demolition of the existing structure. Given the age and condition of all the buildings replaced, com-

plete remodeling should have cost millions less than new construction. These estimates all showed remodeling would cost millions more than new construction. There was no independent analysis of the design team’s conclusions. Pierce claims that value engineering was conducted on each project. This study is required by state law “at the appropriate time in the design process” on all large projects receiving state funding assistance for construction. It’s intended to provide an independent expert analysis of the work of the design team to “identify unnecessary high costs or functions.” The district studies were done long after the conceptual (schematic) design phase where the most costly decision of all was made, new versus remodel. The opportunity for independent expert opinions on the design team’s assumptions and [ more LETTERS page 5 ]

conclusions regarding replacement rather than modernization was long gone by then. Pierce contends that a “modernization only” approach would not provide “the level of equity of school facilities that the current program provides.” However, she doesn’t explain “the level of equity” provided by having almost half of our kids and teachers struggling in aging and out of date buildings, while the rest are housed in new ones.

lion, the major portion of which is to needlessly replace six more relatively new and well constructed buildings, with 100 percent local funds, instead of modernizing them with 25 percent state support. Still using the word “modernize” in the bond title. Twelve buildings will still go years more without modernization, waiting to be replaced instead. The kids, teachers and constituents of a first class school district deserve better consideration. We should demand better stewardship of our limited physical and monetary resources. This extravagant and wasteful bond proposal should be rejected. We should then be presented with a reasonable proposal to keep all of our buildings modernized all of the time and also to properly handle growth.

lators from the 45th and 48th legislative districts — where the school’s students reside — are scheduled to visit in the next couple of months. “It’s a good experience for the kids after learning about American history,” she said about having state lawmakers

in the classroom. Tennis added that having elected officials come in to the classroom is also important for the students as they can learn who represents them in Olympia. She said students can also learn how to speak with them personally, which is an important skill for them to have. This is the first time Tennis has had elected officials visit Stella Schola — a choice middle school in the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) — but she has had other visitors. Hill said he has visited schools and classrooms in the past but it has typically been as part of a government or social studies lesson, where his position as a state senator is directly related to the subject. This was his first time coming in to a science

lesson. “The hands-on stuff is fantastic,” he said about helping students with their experiments, one of which included lighting the pieces of paper on fire to see how the different types burn differently. Eighth-grader Ryan Aloof agreed, saying working in groups and the more handson lessons can help students learn something more easily. “In other schools, science group work has been difficult because there was always someone who got to do all the fun stuff,” he said. “But here at Stella, where everyone respects each other, group work is meaningful and everyone gets to take part in it.” Tennis said having Hill come in for a non-government-related lesson was de-

liberate because it allows him to see what really happens in the classroom. “He’s here to see what school is about in the 21st century,” she said. “Elected officials don’t know what’s going on in the classroom unless they are in the classroom. I thought it was really important for Sen. Hill to feel what real teaching looks like.” Eighth-grader Kiera Johnson said it was great to have Hill come in for a visit. “I think it’s really cool because he has a lot to do with our school system,” she said. Hill, whose children also attend schools within LWSD, also enjoyed his visit to Stella Schola. He said he would return anytime. “This is a lot more fun than most of the meetings (I go to),” he said.

Youngster cracks the code for having fun, achieving success Samantha Pak spak@redmond-reporter.com

For the past few years, much of Olina Sverrisdottir’s life has been spent in front of a computer screen. She worked as a teacher’s assistant for Skema, an Icelandic company focused on incorporating computer programming and coding into the education system, for about three years. In 2012, she won first place in a competition put on by the FBISOS (Safe Online Surfing) program and Alice Project at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) for creating a video about Internet safety. She was also a runner up in a European Centre for Women and Technology (ECWT) competition this year, which focused on inspiring girls and women to get involved in the tech industry. In addition, she was recently asked to make an appearance at a women’s conference in Europe as the keynote speaker — though scheduling conflicts prevented her

from attending. And she has achieved all of this by the time she reached her teens. Recently transplanted from Iceland to Redmond, 13-year-old Olina is now a seventh-grader at Redmond Middle School. She was first introduced to computer programming and coding when she was 9. Her mother, Rakel Solvadottir, was starting Skema — which teaches children how to code through a methodology supported by research in psychology, pedagogy and computer science — and Olina and her brother became students in the program. “I saw (what programming was) and I thought it sounded really cool…turns out, it was really fun,” Olina said. She said she likes coding because she can create her own world. “Being able to do whatever you want,” she said about her favorite thing about coding. “Nothing’s wrong. There’s no wrong answer.”

Olina Sverrisdottir (second from right), goofs off with her fellow European Digital Girl, Woman and Organization winners. Courtesy photo Olina and her family moved to Redmond in August and Solvadottir is currently working to start reKode Education, a program like Skema, in Redmond. After about a year with Skema, Olina became a teacher’s assistant at the age of 10, helping students and teachers learn the fundamentals of programming. The students Olina taught ranged

from 6-16 and she said it was especially fun to teach the older kids — although, they may not have seen it that way. “I think it’s kind of awkward that they’re learning from a younger person,” she said, adding that most of the teens eventually get over the awkwardness. Olina said she also enjoys working with the teachers, as well, because they’re usually

the “boss” and in charge and when she’s helping them, the roles are reversed. “They kind of struggle more than the kids,” she said. “It’s kind of fun to see them do it.” Olina’s love for coding has led her to participate in competitions geared toward young people. Her mother, Solvadottir, said the FBISOS and CMU competition — the Alice Animation Challenge — was focused on encouraging young people to create programs for their peers, illustrating safety guidelines for the Internet. Olina won the middle school division for fifth- through eighth-graders. The ECWT competition in which Olina was a runner up was the European Digital Girl of the Year award in the 11-14-year-old category. The competition — which also has awards for Digital Girl (10 years and younger), Digital Woman and Digital Impact Organization of the year — highlights women, girls and organizations who

make an impact in the digital world and inspire girls and women to get involved in the industry. “It’s awesome,” Solvadottir said about Olina being recognized in the competition as well as her other achievements. “It couldn’t make me more proud.” Solvadottir also noted that her daughter is “really girly,” enjoys dressing up and dancing. “She’s not the stereotype,” she said, referring to the typical visual of a “nerdy girl” in glasses. Solvadottir said it is important for there to be a lot of different types of role models for girls to look up to as they are more likely to find someone they can relate to. In addition, as a woman in tech, she said it is important to have more women in the industry because the two genders are different and each one brings different experiences and visions to the table. The industry needs both of these, Solvadottir said.

[ core from page 1] middle school in Redmond — said she thinks the Common Core is “fabulous” because it puts everyone on an even playing field. “Every kid has the opportunity to learn the same standards,” she said. With the new Common Core, students must meet fewer standards but they delve deeper into concepts and topics. Olson described the previous structure as a “mile wide, inch deep,” in that curriculum would cover many different topics, but only as a brief overview. Under the Common Core, students will be learning more about fewer topics, giving them an opportunity to think and process information more critically. Olson said Common Core is more about providing context for the facts students learn rather than rote memorization. For example, he said, instead of just learning the date of the Pearl Harbor attacks during World War II, students would now learn more about what led up to that day and what prompted the attack. Tennis said Common Core also integrates subjects so students are learning more than one subject at a time. A recent science lesson with Tennis’s eighthgraders illustrated this as it integrated science, math and English. Students compared and contrasted the properties of two different types of papers. They used the scientific method to come up with a hypothesis and prediction about the differences in the papers, utilized math through logical thinking and were asked to write a paper about their findings for English. Tennis said this is more like real life as people don’t sit down for an hour just to do math. There is more crossover among subjects.

A MANY-YEAR PROCESS

Common Core was initially adopted in Washington in 2010. Olson said a law was written that allowed state Superintendent Randy Dorn to provisionally adopt the standards that year and if state lawmakers took no action during the following year’s legislative session, Common Core would be formally adopted by the state in 2011 — which is

what happened. Matt Manobianco, associate superintendent for LWSD, said when the Common Core was adopted, they began training school principals in the 2011-12 school year. “We really were starting two years ago and prepping for it,” he said. The principals learned about what Common Core was, why the new standards were being implemented, the purpose and more. Manobianco said the principals then went on to train their staff and faculty on the subject. The following school year — 2012-13 — administration, faculty and staff at the schools began learning more about what the actual standards are and how they are different or similar to past standards. In preparing to implement the Common Core, Manobianco said LWSD was in the middle of renewing its language arts materials, and the newly adopted materials align with the new standards. As the lead on the elementary literacy adoption committee, Manobianco said the response to the Common Core standards was overwhelmingly positive and people appreciated how detailed and specific they were. “They felt the standards were better written (than the previous ones),” he said. Leonard said now that the standards have been implemented, she is more intentional in her teaching. In the past, she has touched on many of the standards, but now, she allows for more opportunities for students to practice these skills. “I’m just a lot more aware of the importance that we hit these areas,” Leonard said.

A COUPLE OF CONCERNS

While the Common Core has been met mostly with enthusiasm — Manobianco said some teachers wanted to implement them right away — there are some concerns. Olson said implementing the new standards has and will take a lot of work but there has not been much money added to the budget for it. There have also been concerns about the additional workload for educators. Tennis acknowledged this, saying the work she does to meet Common Core standards is done outside the classroom

because she doesn’t want to take time away from students. She said the new standards are a good thing, but they will take time. “We will need some training and staff development,” she said. In addition, Olson said there have been some concerns about the federal government intruding and forcing the standards on people. “We don’t believe that is the case,” Olson said. Although the state has adopted the new standards, he said, they “don’t determine curriculum. Curriculum is determined locally.” Basically, he said, the state determines what students need to know, but local districts determine how they learn it. This is one of the reasons Tennis likes the Common Core standards. “We can teach it whatever way works in our classroom,” she said. “It allows teachers to be themselves...The teachers can bring their own personality into the lesson.” Parents who would like more information about the Common Core standards can visit the LWSD website at lwsd. org and click on the “For Parents” link on the left to learn more. Leonard encourages them to talk to their children’s teachers, as well. “We’d be happy to help parents understand,” she said.

[ cybercrime from page 1] when focus areas intersect, which they see occurring more frequently. With the launch of the Cybercrime Center, the DCU produced a video stressing the importance of having such a center. The video featured individuals from Microsoft and the DCU, various law enforcement agencies (national and international) and private security companies — who said cybercriminals don’t necessarily have to be in the same country as their victims. “Cybercrime is a truly global crime,” said Noboru Nakatani, executive director of the Global Complex for Innovation for the International Criminal Police Organization, or Interpol. “A transnational crime in nature that is different from what used to be.” John Boles of the FBI’s Cyber Division added, “There’s no set boundaries for where (cybercriminals) might come from and there’s no set boundaries for where they might attack.” The idea for the Cybercrime Center stemmed from a visit Brad Smith, Microsoft’s general counsel and executive vice president of legal and corporate affairs, made to South Korea’s national cybercrime headquarters. Smith, who was also featured in the DCU video, said criminals are getting more sophisticated on figuring out how to exploit the Internet in order to harm others.

November 22, 2013 [7] “I think that we are at a critical moment in time,” he said. “In part, it’s because the problem is getting worse. Now at the same time, our technology is getting much more sophisticated. And it was clear, this was the time to make sure that we harnessed the power of that technology so that we have the most powerful ability in the world to fight crime on the Internet.” MacNaughton said the Cybercrime Center

was designed with various partners in mind. For example, this year and last year, in joint operations with the FBI, Interpol, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement/Homeland Security Investigations, Scotland Yard and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, they shut down more than 20,000 illegal online pharmacies selling dangerous counterfeit drugs that [ more cybercrime page 8 ]

For people with diabetes, taking a multivitamin every day can mean much more than a little protection against the common cold. Research is finding that multivitamins can be the first line of defense against many different types of infections, including respiratory infections and influenza. “Once a person with diabetes gets an infection, it’s much harder for them to get rid of it, and it can lead to dire consequences, even death,” says registered and certified dietitiannutritionist Debra Spector. “And since some diabetic patients don’t normally respond well to treatment, prevention

of Internal Medicine, found that the incidence of infection was much lower among diabetics who took a multivitamin versus those who did not. Infection occurred in only 17 percent of diabetic patients who took a multivitamin versus the 93 percent who took a placebo. The study also found that regular multivitamin us-

age reduced the rate of minor urinary tract and gastrointestinal infections in people with diabetes. Because of the nature of the disease, it’s not uncommon for diabetics to experience nutrient deficiencies. Diabetes medications and frequent urination can lead to the loss of vital nutrients that protect the body.

“Since there are many health risks that can result from vitamin and mineral deficiencies, I encourage my diabetic patients to find a multivitamin supplement with more potent levels of important nutrients to meet their needs,” says Spector. “It should contain Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), an important nutrient that most ‘regular’

multivitamins do not have. I like Multi-betic Diabetes Multi-Vitamin since it has 23 important nutrients, including ALA, designed to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, support vision and promote nerve function.” Learn more about Multi-betic and other diabetic products at www.diabeticproducts. com.

Gary James Ryan passed away on November 12, 2013 on Union Hill east of Redmond, WA.  He was 54 years old. He was born on January 11, 1959 at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne,WY, to parents Daniel & Josephine Ryan. He moved to Redmond in March 1968. He graduated from Redmond High School June 1977. He enlisted in the US Air Force and was honorably discharged with disability in 1981. Gary was very kind and easy to get along with, he loved pets of all kinds, and is deeply missed by his cat Strider; as well as his friends and family in the Seattle area! He is survived by three siblings: Daniel Ryan II of Livingston, TX, Sharon Tompkins of Kerrville, TX, and Shawn Ryan of Lynnwood, WA. A celebration in remembrance of his life will be scheduled later for family and friends. The family invites you to leave a message or memory at www.bartonfuneral.com by selecting Obituaries.
