Bothell moves forward with new City Hall plan BY MATT PHELPS

One of the biggest expenditures the city of Bothell will ever make is for a new City Hall in downtown. In 2011, the cost estimate was more than $42 million. The

city has been working on the project for six years but delays have taken the project out of the spotlight during the past two years. City staff brought the issue back for public discussion on a defining part of the project during the Nov. 12, 19 and 26 council meet-

ings. “Due to the unavoidable delay of the Bothell Crossroads project, which is currently under construction, as well as the slow economic recovery from the recession, the construction of the City Hall has proceeded in a more con-

servative phase approach than originally planned,” said Bothell City Manager Bob Stowe during the Nov. 12 meeting. The Council took public comment during the Nov. 12 and 19 meetings and were planning to discuss and possibly take a vote on

the proposed Predevelopment Agreement on Nov. 26. “This really cements the relationship between the city and the developer,” said Bothell City Councilman Andy Rheaume. The Nov. 26 meeting took place after the Reporter

deadline. Council discussed the proposed Predevelopment Agreement with City Investors Development, Inc., also known as Vulcan Real Estate, at length. It would cost the city $835,646. [ more CITY page 6 ]

Holidays come alive at Chalet Cadeau BY MATT PHELPS

For many, the holiday season begins with Black Friday and all the sales at box stores and online. But for others, it does not start without other more festive seasonal traditions. One holiday tradition for many north Lake Washington residents is a trip to Chalet Cadeau. The store relocated from downtown Kirkland to Bothell, next to the new Safeway at 24110 BothellEverett Highway, last spring and has maintained the same sense of holiday tradition and charm. “Christmas takes a lot of time to set up and take down,” said owner Wendy

Marshall. “When it is all set up and pretty, I love it.” Marshall said that the transition from her normal merchandise to the holiday merchandise is tiring and stressful but worth it. The store is currently full of Christmas ornaments and decorations but it wasn’t always that way for Marshall and her staff. When Chalet Cadeau was in Kirkland, Marshall opened a yearround Christmas decoration store on the same street as the regular store. Marshall decided to bring the two stores back together with the move from Kirkland to Bothell. “The Christmas store really needs to be in a tourist area,” said Marshall. “I have [ more CADEAU page 3 ]

Kenmore hosts 40 city officials from across US for economic event When the owners of Kenmore Air told city officials that the Secret Service shuts down their seaplane operation every time the U.S. president visits the

area, Kenmore officials listened. The Kenmore City Council added the information to its federal legislative agenda to see how the city could work with the government to potentially keep the business open during those

times. When several local business owners told Kenmore officials they wanted the city to have freeway signage on Interstate 5 and Interstate 405, the city added that to its state legislative agenda. The city

U.S. who packed the Kenmore Council Chambers on Thursday. The city representatives came together for the National League of Cities Conference in Seattle to share best practices, before a busload of officials headed

“We have to refresh the plans and then make a decision on whether to go forward,” said Stowe. The agreement would complete the design proposal for the new City Hall, allowing Vulcan to present the city with an updated guaranteed maximum price for the project, which is expected to have increased since 2011. Vulcan’s guaranteed maximum price is expected to curb costs. •

“We know that in a lot of our public contracts that change order costs have been significant,” said Councilman Bill Evans. “In this particular bidding climate, people are bidding it low to get the job and then making up those costs as they go through the project. I think that the fact that there is a guaranteed maximum price is a way to curb that. We may pay a little bit more in finance charges but we certainly save overall on the project.”

The city has already completed the first part of the project by acquiring the land, relocating utilities and demolishing the buildings on the property. The proposed building would be located on the same block as the current City Hall building. Many residents questioned the site proposal based on cost. But city officials pointed out that the location was debated and agreed on two years ago. But the 28 months that the project was put on

hold due to the economic downturn has led to a disconnect between city staff, Council and the public. The Predevelopment Agreement is the second part of the plan, taking the building’s design from 70 percent completion to 100 percent and bringing the design into compliance with recent updates to Washington state building and energy codes. Then the city could acquire the building permits. The facility’s financing is planned as a lease development project using a nonprofit public benefit corporation, City Investors LLC, to issue tax-exempt bonds. Vulcan would build the new City Hall and corresponding parking garage. The city would then lease the building from the non-profit for 30 years at a projected $3 million a year. The city would then own the building. Stowe said the last time the issue of a new City Hall was placed on the ballot was in 2002 as part of a facilities measure with the Northshore School District that failed. Waiting to go forward with the project could cost taxpayers, according to city officials. With interest rates expected to rise, the city estimates that the project could cost $24 million more if built in 2017 and $44 million more in 2019. The city has also looked at



Nigh ial y Spec a d i l o H King or Single eens Two Qu

ways to bring the cost of the project down. One idea is to eliminate one or two levels of the three-level parking garage, which would be built under the new City Hall. Another idea is to eliminate a floor from the four-floor City Hall building. That fourth floor could be left empty after the building is constructed to save on costs but in place for any future city expansion. The few people who showed up to the meeting on Nov. 12 were surprised by the agenda item. “I want to build a new City Hall as much as any of you do but I want to point out to you that the last time this topic was on the agenda for discussion with the public was in June 2011,” said Bothell resident Dick Paylor during public comment. But it wasn’t just the citizens who attend council meeting. Rheaume was taken aback by the apparent haste at which the city brought the issue back, stating that it had not been on the projected agenda items list. “It has been two years since the council has talked about this,” said Rheaume. “This is a $50 million decision. It was surprising to me to have people who are for the project asking for more time and more public input.” City staff disputed that issue. “It was on there for a week

or a week-and-a-half in advance,” said Stowe. “We never had any intention of making any decisions on (Nov. 12).” Stowe confirmed that the item was added to the projected agenda on Nov. 1. “The discussion tonight [Nov. 12] was never on the projected agenda,” said Paylor. “So unless you had been watching the agenda every week you would not even know that this is being talked about tonight, yet it is probably the biggest financial decision the city has ever made. I am here to ask you to take a time out and step back and engage the public on where you’re at.” Three of the four speakers at the Nov. 12 meeting expressed concern for the timing at which the agenda item was brought back to Council for approval. City staff continued public comment on Nov. 19 and 17 residents spoke in favor of slowing down the process of against the projected cost of the project. City officials decided to hold the vote on the Predevelopment Agreement during the Nov. 12 and 19 meetings. It was unclear if the Council would vote on Nov. 26. If the council approves the Predevelopment Agreement, it will still have to take a final vote to approve the construction of the new City Hall building in May 2014.

DelBene votes for House insurance plan U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene voted Nov. 15 to let Americans renew their individual insurance policies through 2014. “Like many Americans, I have been very frustrated and disappointed by the poor implementation of the federal health exchange,” said DelBene, of Medina. “This is why I voted ‘YES.’” DelBene added that she respects the decision made by Washington’ state Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler not to allow plans that lack Affordable Care Act benefits to be renewed. “Washington is fortunate to have a health exchange that is providing residents the ability to find and purchase one of 46 quality plans.,” DelBene said. More than 77,000 people already have enrolled in health care plans in the state. “However, not every state has the Washington Healthplanfinder and individuals should not be penalized by the administration’s broken promise,” DelBene said. “My vote today represents my desire to correct the rollout of the federal exchange and provide relief for Americans who are having difficulty participating in the federal exchange.” DelBene said she does not support dismantling or repealing the Affordable Care Act “because I know the status quo before was unacceptable.” DelBene noted that while the law is not perfect she supports making clear, specific changes as needed to improve the ACA.

Toy N’ Joy drive Bartell Drugs is once again

partnering with the Salvation Army to provide holiday gifts for children in need by collecting new, unwrapped toys during its 10th annual Salvation Army “Toy ‘N’ Joy” drive, Nov. 17 through Dec. 14. The toy donations will be accepted at all Bartell Drugs locations in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Toys will be distributed to lowincome children and youth the week before Christmas through the Salvation Army’s

“toy warehouses.” Bartells Bothell stores are located at 22833 BothellEverett Highway and 18001 Bothell-Everett Highway, Ste. 101, Bothell. The five-week drive in 2012 generated over 5,400 toy donations by Bartell’s customers—the estimated equivalent of $81,300 in toys to the Salvation Army.

said Marshall. “It is really expensive to do. We started doing it just before we moved to Bothell.” The biggest expense is for shipping and then Marshall and her five employees have to take a photo of everything in the store. A lack of parking and es-

calating rent forced Marshall to move from downtown Kirkland. “I thought it would be a better space with a lot more parking,” said Marshall. “The building in Kirkland leaked and the rent was about $20,000 a month. My customers would shop and

go to lunch and come back and they would have tickets on their cars. [The move] happened pretty fast and we were downsizing but the move was a good one.” Chalet Cadeau will welcome back harpist Bronn Journey tomorrow for an instore concert from 1-4 p.m.

A black day for a family holiday


ome of my fondest memories from childhood are of the holidays. A toasty apartment on Capitol Hill in Seattle, complete with condensation on the windows, would be a stark contrast to the biting cold outside. I would stick my head out the window, leaving the aroma of a cooking turkey and stuffing, to see the lights atop the Space Needle. My grandparents’ apartment was small but it was the only place my sister and I experienced Thanksgiving until we were adults. Thanksgiving was also filled with football on the TV and all my immediate relatives talking politics and job stuff I generally did not understand. With my grandparents long passed and my young family beginning new traditions, I know how important it is to spend time with them. Thanksgiving is a family-first holiday and most all Americans celebrate it relatively the same way. It is not subject to a person’s religious preference. It can be celebrated by those with or without children and enjoyed just the same. Most people are given the day off of work - or at least that is how it used to be. Recent trends have turned Black Friday into Black Thanksgiving. Most stores opened for the holiday shopping season yesterday with “door-buster sales!” In an attempt to extend the holiday shopping season and make more money, big box stores are trying to replace turkey dinner with stampedes for a cheap TV. The car ride to grandmas is being replaced with people searching for parking in mall lots. Some have gone so far as to say that this is the beginning of the end of Thanksgiving. I take issue with that. Not everyone participated in Black Thursday. Many people ignore the idea of the crushing and chaotic masses pushing and shoving for a $10 toaster oven. I have been known to get up early on Black Friday, a rarity for me on a day off, to see what was available. But I will opt for sleep this year and

boycott the sales today in protest of the encroachment on Thanksgiving. I absolutely refuse to be a part of the corporate and consumer greed that has become Black Thanksgiving - and I am not alone. Many consumers and retail companies have joined the call to stop the devolution of Thanksgiving. Sur La Table in Kirkland is one of those stores. “Thanksgiving is a time to be with families and loved ones and we won’t be sucked into the holiday shopping frenzy that diminishes the important role the holiday plays in celebrating and creating family traditions,” said Sur La Table President and CEO Jack Schwefel in a statement last week. “I hope that our customers and our employees will do just that, enjoy the holiday. But if they wish to shop, is open all day and night. Don’t misinterpret our message as not being customer focused. We will provide valuable and useful services to customers in our stores in every way possible, just not on Thanksgiving! Our emMatt Phelps

ployees deserve the opportunity to also give thanks.” Most local stores were closed yesterday. Some national companies that call Seattle home, such as Costco and REI, refused to take part in the Black Thanksgiving trend this year. Reward them. But Black Thanksgiving doesn’t just impact consumers. Many box stores banned employees from requesting vacation on Thanksgiving. They banned employees from spending one of the most familyfriendly holidays with their families. The irony of Black Thanksgiving is that it will slowly erode the most prosperous season for another sector of the retail economy - grocery stores. Retail analysts predict that yesterday was just the start of the trend of making the holiday shopping season longer. Some predict that eventually all companies will be open on Thanksgiving and start their sales even earlier during the week. We may eventually get to Black Halloween - poetic but just as crass and annoying.

Petition in the works to ban bicyclists from using Big Finn Hill Park Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, in collusion with the King County’s natural lands program project manager David Kimmett, have taken it upon themselves to remake Big Finn Hill Park in their own image, in spite of the many voices of protest from the local community. I must certainly give the bike alliance a hand for their ability to motivate their base of support and motivating their members into action; however, the bike alliance’s and King County’s inability to hear the voices of the people whose lives and neighborhood these changes most directly affect, is greatly disturbing to myself and nearly everyone in my community. Every time that we have expressed concerns about the changes to the park, we have been told that

we are being rude and that this is essentially a done deal. At no time do I, or the majority of my neighbors, feel that we have had a meaningful voice in this process. I recently received a forwarded email from the “committee” saying that “users other than the riders are fragmented and unlikely to come together under any circumstances.” That just makes me mad. You have poked the bear and stirred up a hornet’s nest in the process. If the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and King County had truly attempted to work with us, I am sure we could have reached a compromise, but there has been no attempt at diplomacy on their part. From everything that I have seen and heard, the changes to this park are a foregone conclusion and the local residents’ opposition is a minor inconvenience to be swept under the rug and ignored. When the desires of a small special interest group completely railroad the wishes of the overwhelming majority of the local community, I worry

However, there seems to be word getting to the excited members of the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, because they show up at pre-arranged times to dig, chop, haul and transform certain trails however they see fit. The democratic process has been thwarted. There have been voices of dissent, letters and emails written, and there has been nothing done to address these valid concerns. There has been no voting or hearings or notice, but there has been an awful lot of digging, cutting and re-arranging happening. Frankly, I find it a little

embarrassing for the bike club. What an awful job of public relations. I am beginning to feel that this park was much more enjoyable without all these bikers around.

Bothell beats GrahamKapowsin The Cougars faced one of its biggest tests of the season on Nov. 15 against Graham-Kapowsin. After all, the Eagles entered the game undefeated at 10-0 and were ranked No. 3 in the state. But someone forgot to tell McPherson that the defense on the other side of the field was one of the best in the state. McPherson shredded the Eagles for 297-yards rushing and four touchdowns, as Bothell advanced to the round of eight with a 52-28 victory at Art Crate Stadium in Spanaway. Whipping wind and rain made any offense through the air difficult, but Bothell scored its first

touchdown on a five-yard pass from Bowers to Ryan Knight. That 7-0 lead doubled just when it looked like the Eagle defense might bury Bothell. Precariously perched on their own two-yard line, Bowers handed the ball to McPherson in an attempt to just push the ball out a few yards. But McPherson’s churning and anxious legs behind the line of scrimmage were freed, as the Bothell sideline roared to life and he galloped 98 yards for the touchdown. The Eagles kept pace, scoring a touchdown with a 20-yard pass on their ensuing possession. Bothell responded with a 35-yard touchdown pass of its own from Bowers to Wilson. The Cougars built a 28-7 lead just before halftime on a six-yard touchdown run by McPherson. Graham-Kapowsin

looked to have some new life after the break, driving down field and scoring on a six-yard run by Teague James. James, one of the best running backs in the state, finished the game with 240-yards rushing. But this day was McPherson’s. The junior exploded out of the back field on the Cougars’ next possession and sprinted 63 yards for a touchdown, deflating any residual excitement from the Eagle players. A 46-yard field goal from Gheradini to open the third quarter pushed the Bothell advantage to 38-14. McPherson also showed he can catch as well as run, scoring on a 50-yard pass play from Bowers. The final score of the game for Bothell came from Damani St. JohnsWatkins on a 23-yard run. The score pushed Bothell’s advantage to 52-14. Graham-Kapowsin would score two more touchdowns before the end of the game but it would be too little too late. Bothell finishes the 2013 campaign with a 9-3 overall record. The team only lost one game during the regular season and lost to Skyline for the 4A KingCo title. The Cougars have a bright future, as they only started three seniors this season.

wo of the last three seasons have ended in Tacoma at the hands of Bellarmine Prep for the Bothell High School football team. So the law of averages would say that the Cougars had a good chance of beating the Lions and advance in the state playoffs Saturday. Bothell took their recent playoff rival to the limit but one big interception broke the Cougars’ collective hearts in overtime, losing 20-17.

Prep looked to have all the momentum early, taking a 10-0 lead with the aid of a packed stadium. But Bothell fought back with a score just before halftime, as Cougar quarterback Ross Bowers found Dayzell Wilson for a 10-yard touchdown pass. Bothell took the lead, as running back Sam McPherson scored the first points of the second half from two-yards out. The junior finished the day with 104 yards rushing.

some local control with services, however, that “hasn’t been that much of a problem for us.” During the event, the group ate lunch that was provided by Bastyr University. The officials then went to the university for a campus tour.

they can operate on just 29 people - that’s astounding.” Zilka said the city of Avon Lake, which has a population of 23,000, employs nearly 60 police and fire personnel, as well as 30 staff members. “Then looking at $49 million for two years but again, they’re including utilities. So it’s apples to oranges,” said Zilka. “But then they said they paid cash for this very nice building; we don’t pay cash for our buildings but we have a solid financial situation.” Karlinsey said the city of Kenmore saves money by contracting out its police and fire services. “We like this contracting model because it keeps our overhead costs down,” said Karlinsey, noting that a recent study showed contracting out for police services saved the city of Kenmore $1 million per year. “I had

far west as California, south as Texas and as far east as Massachusetts. Karlinsey and Mayor David Baker spoke about the city’s top goals, all related to economic development, and ways to catalyze that development - including listening to the business community. “I’m really impressed with what they’ve done here with economic development and reaching out to their business community,” Federal Way City Councilwoman Susan Honda told the Reporter following the presentation. “They went out to their business community instead of waiting for their business community to come to them. I’m hoping we can do something like that in Federal Way.” Kelly Maloney, also a Federal Way City Council member, said Kenmore officials have a “very collaborative spirit. The way that they reach out is really refreshing and it’s something that we’ve wanted for a very long time. Right now, we think Federal Way is in a position to be able to do some of the stuff that Kenmore is doing.” One of those things Kenmore is doing includes maximizing its unique assets, such as Bastyr University, a globally-respected institution of natural health arts and sciences. The city is working to form a “health sciences innovation zone” in Kenmore, Karlinsey said. “We want to be known as the epicenter of health science innovation,” he said, noting Assistant City Manger Nancy Ousley has forged several partnerships with Bastyr, service providers and naturopathic doctors. “She’s gotten these people talking to each other where they haven’t been able to get out in the community as much in the past.” Maloney said that Federal Way city officials are looking to put together a sort of innovation zone much like Kenmore’s, only in a different sector. Kenmore also “cultivates economic gardening” by helping its businesses to grow. “We have felt very, very strongly that we want to help our businesses in our city grow,” Baker said. “I mean, it’s easy to go out to a neighboring city and try to steal a business away and offer them all these attractive things and before you know it, you’ve got another city trying to steal your business away from you. So what we wanted to do was take our own existing businesses and do what we can do to help.” For example, the city

The Inglemoor High School girls swim and dive team placed sixth in state during the championship meet held the King County Aquatic Center on Nov. 16. The team was led by Kayla Roberson, who placed second in the 200yard freestyle and third in the 100-yard breaststroke. Roberson’s time in the breaststroke qualified her for an All-American consideration time. Sage Speak also placed fourth in 100-yard freestyle. The 200-yard medley relay team of Emily Chapple, Roberson, Calista Skog and Speak and 400-yard freestyle relay, comprised of Roberson, Skog, Liza Panova and Speak, both placed sixth during the meet.

Three BHS seniors sign National Letters Three Bothell High School athletes celebrated signing National Letters of Intent to play college athletics on Nov. 20. Josh Martin, Reece Laufasa and Daniel Fredrickson signed their letters during a ceremony held at the high school before classes with friends, family and coaches. Bothell High School senior Josh Martin signed to play basketball at the University

of Minnesota next year. The 6-foot-7 senior made his decision to play for the Golden Gophers in September. Martin was highly recruited by Florida State, Oklahoma State and Pittsburgh. Martin averaged 11.8 points and 8.2 rebounds as a junior for the Cougars after transferring from Seattle Prep. Martin also shot 50 percent last season, helping the Cougars to the state tournament and earned All-State honors. Fredrickson, a senior, will play baseball this spring for the Cougars before taking his tal-

ents to Washington State University in the fall of 2014. As a junior, Fredrickson hit .347 and helped lead the Cougars to the state tournament. Laufasa is the setter for the Bothell High School volleyball team and signed to play with Northern Arizona University. Laufasa had 337 assists this season for the Cougars, leading the team deep into the District tournament with a 13-14 record. Laufasa transferred from Juanita High School last year and also played for the club team Sudden Impact Volleyball.

Bothell High School held a celebration on Wednesday morning for three athletes who signed National Letters of Intent to play college athletics.
