Redmond Ridge residents lit up about marijuana ordinance SAMANTHA PAK

A proposed ordinance regarding development regulations for recreational marijuana producers, processors and retailers prompted Redmond Ridge residents to make the drive across the water to attend Monday’s King County Council meeting in Seattle to voice their concerns about how their commu-

nity could be affected. Language had been recently added to King County ordinance 20130472 that could potentially bring a marijuana processing plant to the Ridge. After closing Monday’s public hearing, members of the King County Council delayed further discussion on the proposed ordinance until their next full council meeting this Monday. They

are scheduled to discuss the proposed ordinance and the public testimony that they received.

Merry Christmas signs: Some like them, some don’t ANDY NYSTROM

City of Redmond Mayor John Marchione said someone started posting the green signs with white lettering around the city late Saturday. The signs — which stand near City Hall, the downtown library and several churches and schools — are emblazoned with: “It’s OK to say, Merry CHRISTMAS” in large letters at the top. Underneath, in smaller letters, there’s a quotation from Romans 1:16 of the Bible: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes; first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” A lengthy verse from the Gospel of Luke follows in tiny lettering.

There’s a new community feeding program in town and it is open to anyone and everyone, no questions asked. Open Kitchen, a new ministry of Redmond United Methodist Church (RUMC), was started by coordinators and church members Kristen Muscott, Shelia Kandeler and Jayleen Ryberg. The three women came together to start the soup kitchen because, “We knew there was a need in the Redmond community,” Ryberg said. They serve a meal every Wednesday, from 5-7 p.m. at RUMC, at 16540 N.E. 80th St. in downtown, and this week was their third meal. They served about 15 people. “We’re really focused on soup and sandwiches,” Ryberg said about the food they serve. As Muscott, Kandeler and Ryberg worked to take Open Kitchen from

She said the grocery store manager let them stand at the entrances and ask for donations from shoppers. They would hand people lists of what they needed and soon

found they needed to add more to their lists. “We cleared the shelves,” Muscott said. In addition, QFC donated a gift card for them to use on perishables that would not keep fresh from week to week. Muscott said they also received a gift card from Costco [ more KITCHEN page 16 ]

LIGHTING the WAY Central Connector grand opening to bring new route to luminary walk and new energy to 15th annual Redmond Lights festival SAMANTHA PAK

For the past decade and a half, the Redmond community has been coming together on the first Saturday of December to celebrate the area’s cultural diversity with Redmond Lights. Now in its 15th year, the event will be from 4-8 p.m. on Saturday. There will be activities and entertainment in various locations including City Hall campus, 15670 N.E. 85th St., and Redmond Town Center (RTC), 7525 166th Ave. N.E. This year’s tree lighting at City Hall will be at 5 p.m., and for the first time be accompanied by fireworks from the roof of City Hall, which City of Redmond events and marketing administrator Lisa Rhodes said they have been trying to do for six years.


Our holiday move-in gifts are perfect for you.

Following the tree lighting, members of the Redmond City Council, Parks

and Trails Commission and Pedestrian Bicycle Advisory Committee will lead the way on the traditional luminary walk on bikes decorated in holiday lights. As in previous years, the walk goes from City Hall to the town center. This year, however, instead of keeping to the Sammamish River Trail, it will connect with the Redmond Central Connector (RCC) and head east into the downtown core. The walk will end along the trail at 166th Avenue Northeast, near ERRATIC, public artist John Fleming’s sculpture of metal, glass and interactive light. Fleming will also be onsite throughout the night to discuss his work with the community. Rhodes said the change in route was in honor of the grand opening of the downtown portion of the RCC. “I am excited for the trail opening,” she said.

Creek Trail, parallel to Cleveland Street and RTC. The one-mile paved trail is intended as a key destination in downtown featuring integrated art and landscaping designed by the Berger Partnership. Rhodes said when the luminary walk was along the Sammamish River Trail, it was very peaceful. Bringing it to the downtown core will hopefully bring new energy to the luminary walk and Redmond Lights as well as bring more people to the downtown core.


RCC project manager Carolyn Hope added, “The opening of the Redmond Central Connector is very exciting for the City of Redmond, our residents and businesses as it provides a great pedestrian connection between key regional trails that will bring thousands of new people into downtown Redmond to shop, eat and play.” She said the trail also provides a direct connection between RTC and historical downtown Redmond and adds 10 acres of open space to the downtown core. “We are excited to celebrate the grand opening of the trail with Redmond Lights, as we will be able to showcase our new trail to thousands of people as they enjoy a luminary walk and holiday festivities along the trail,” Hope said. “This event will showcase our the centerpiece of our walkable city.” To celebrate the newly finished trail, Rhodes said, there will be a special ceremony at 5:20 p.m. along the trail during which Redmond Mayor John Marchione will “flip the switch” to light the RCC for the walk. “Instead of cutting a ribbon, we’re doing light,” Rhodes said. She added that because part of the walk will be in the middle of downtown, there will be some road closures to keep walkers safe. From 3:308:30 p.m., all southbound streets off of Cleveland Street from 161st Avenue Northeast to 166th Avenue Northeast will be closed. “We will have alternate routes,” she said.

City receives Green Hammer award from Built Green The City of Redmond was recently selected as the 2013 Built Green Hammer Award winner in the Built Green program’s Advocate, Public Sector category. Cathy Beam, the city’s principal environmental planner, accepted the award at last week’s 2013 Built Green Conference, held at the Brightwater Education Center in Woodinville. “The City of Redmond has been an outstanding partner in promoting green building practices in the region,” said Aaron Adelstein, executive director for Built Green. “Their incentive program

and work with builders is helping lower the impact of residential buildings on the environment throughout the community.” Now in its 12th year, Built Green is an environmentally friendly nonprofit residential building program of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish counties, developed in partnership with King County, Snohomish County, and other agencies in Washington. The Hammer Awards were designed to reward Built Green members for their outstanding projects and participation.


As usual, there will be entertainment along the luminary walk. Some new acts include a fire artist as well as Brazilian drumming. There will also be returning performers such as the Keith Highlanders Pipe Band and hot air balloon glow, though Rhodes said the latter will be dependent on the weather. “We hope to have a calm day,” she said about Saturday. Other Redmond Lights highlights include free kids’ activities, live music performances, ice sculptures, live reindeer and more. And due to the popularity of last year’s Centennial Bonfire, Rhodes said they will have more bonfires — though on a smaller scale

— throughout the event, along with s’mores and marshmallow roasting. At RTC, there will be a life-sized snow globes where people can take photos as well as the return of the Marriott Merry-Go-Round. Rhodes said the latter was so popular last year that they brought it back, and instead of just being open for one night, people will be able to ride it through Jan. 1, 2014, during mall hours. There is a suggested donated of $3, which will benefit Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center in

Happy Holidays

Redmond. “I’m super happy that Redmond Town Center and the Marriott were able to bring that back,” Rhodes said. To help people get from one location to another, there will be shuttles, provided by Microsoft Corp., that will run back and forth between the Redmond Senior Center, 8703 160th Ave. N.E., and the back side of RTC by Gene Juarez, 7525 166th Ave. N.E.

The dead end at Redmond Transit Center I am standing in darkness outside the Redmond Transit Center at 7:30 in the morning, where you can no longer park. Our transit center building was too small when it was first constructed: 377 spaces serving a growing town of more than 50,000. It didn’t need to be this tiny. Aesthetically it is too short to match the newer buildings popping up all over in Redmond but that, obviously, is not why many of us riders are upset. We are irritated and astounded in equal measure that the capacity guesses and effect of the 520 bridge toll were so gravely underestimated. It’s a little shocking how quickly these estimates were proven wrong, but, in all fairness, predicting the future is an uncertain business, so in the end perhaps it is forgivable. What is impossible to understand is the design. To find out that you can no longer park at the Redmond Transit Center even before the sun has risen, you must drive all the way to the top. There are no signs, no warnings that the garage is completely full, so you ascend the ramps until you — and the score of cars that followed you — cannot go any further. Literally. I’ve been in a lot of parking garages, but only one, only Redmond’s tiny little inadequate depot, actually traps you at the top. There is nowhere to turn. There is no path for you to go back down. You are in a box canyon with a traffic jam behind you. Your morning commute now includes performing a synchronized dance of turning and backing up and turning and inching forward and turning and backing up and turning and inching forward, until every vehicle in the line has rotated 180 degrees and can troop back down out of the trap to seek parking elsewhere. You have missed two, even three buses now. It’s gonna be a great morning. So there it huddles, smack dab in the middle of an otherwise successful town run intelligently and well, forcing the question: what the hell happened? Redmond isn’t getting smaller; Seattle isn’t going away; and so I wonder on behalf of riders who are slowly being evicted from the very mass transit center that we paid for, what is the plan? We wasted millions of dollars and so some of us want an assurance that a remedy is on the way. So again, what is the plan?

How green is Greystone? The winter, 2013 issue of Redmond Focus spoke with pride on the tree-retention plan and replacement trees to be planted as compensation for those lost during construction of the Greystone housing development in North Redmond. In April, 2013 Sustainable Redmond presented the City Council with findings from a natural resources study of Redmond’s treeretention practices, which included a statistical analysis of Greystone. Here are our findings based on the public record: Greystone had a total of 2,027 trees, 1,757 of which were “healthy” enough to consider retaining. Of the 1,757 remaining, 1,426 were “significant” and measured at least 6 inches diameter which were therefore subject to the 35 percent retention standard per city code, hence the retained number of 500 (the minimum standard) was met in this category of trees. However, this allowed removal of 926 healthy trees.

“Landmark” trees, which measure more than 30 inches in diameter, numbered 331 of which 100 percent should have been retained under city code. By obtaining an administrative exception to this code provision, the developer retained only 38 percent — 126 with 205 of these large trees removed — 62 percent below the prescribed standard of 100 percent. Of the original 2,027 trees in Greystone’s arborist inventory, only 627 were saved. The replacement of these trees at ratios demanded by code is commendable, but the saplings to be planted do not compensate for the ecological value of the trees lost through this development or the added environmental benefits provided by smaller trees and understory. The Sustainable Redmond study also calculated the environmental services provided by forests and trees affected by development in Redmond since 2010. Those services include stormwater runoff prevented, carbon sequestered and carbon dioxide cleaned from the atmosphere. The larger the trees, the more environmental services they provide. In the case of Greystone, the trees removed provided more than $67,000 in environmental services annually based on a nationally accepted analysis program that factors in tree size and species. “Significant” trees removed would have saved 1,224,681 gallons of stormwater runoff with treatment valued at $34,030 and sequestered 284,393 pounds of CO2 valued at $954. The 205 “landmark” trees would have saved 1,027,112 gallons of stormwater with a value of $28,544 and sequestered 104,720 pounds of carbon valued at $351. The annual air-quality improvements of these trees was calculated to be worth $2,028 and $1,148 respectively. These are conservative figures since ecological contributions from less healthy trees or smaller vegetation was not quantified. A dollar value cannot be placed on habitat lost or aesthetic qualities removed from the community that contribute to both mental and physical well-being of the neighborhood. Although the number of replacement trees noted in the Focus article seems imposing, there will be no adequate replacement for the environmental services provided by the trees removed from this 44-acre site generations … hardly “temporal.” Sustainable Redmond will continue to advocate for a more transparent administrative exception process accompanied by full public notice and more stringent application of existing city tree-preservation regulations.

Redmond Ridge community says ‘no’ to legislation enabling large neighborhood marijuana farms • I am a resident of Redmond Ridge for the last six and a half years. I have two daughters both of whom are younger than 10 years. As you know, the community recently appealed to King County Council members to reject the ordinance that essentially would place a marijuana growing, processing and distribution factory in the heart of the community. The targeted location is very close to the Rosa Parks Elementary School and across from the Goddard School. Both the schools combined have traffic of more than 900 kids on any given day. This is also very close proximity to King County playgrounds and abuts popular trails prized and utilized regularly by the community and surrounding communities including Redmond Ridge East. This facility has the potential to and will cause the decay of this close-knit community of families. Redmond Ridge is not a proper location for this proposed facility, not because this is a special community, but just because this community is a dense, planned neighborhood of young hard-working families who chose the neighborhood to raise their young kids and like the abundance of natural trails around it. These are the early days of the state facing consequences due to marijuana legalization and care must be taken not to set precedents due to which communities and neighborhoods are destroyed. There is time for experimentation in industrial and unpopulated rural areas. Redmond Ridge is not one of those locations that qualify for experimentation and must not be singled out and imposed upon in these early stages. We are rapidly losing competitive advantage to countries such as China, Korea and Brazil. Locally, we face the possibility of Boeing gradually moving out. The need of the time is for investment into education, and creation of jobs that involve new technologies. It is NOT the time to introduce destructive vices into the great societies we have worked so hard to build.

Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s continued its steady growth in 2012 by opening 92 new restaurants throughout the country, a 33 percent increase in new store growth over 2011. Franchise owner Leila McConnell is committed to offering quality products and customer service and is dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, locations throughout the country have raised almost $7 million for local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. “The small-town vibe and close-knit community make Redmond a really great home for Jersey Mike’s,” said McConnell. “We are hopeful that through the generous donations of our new customers, we can truly give back to our students in a meaningful way.” This is McConnell’s first Jersey Mike’s location. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. For information, call (425) 881-7827.

opposition to and demand a “no” vote to zoning ordinance 2013-0472. I appreciate that the ordinance validating a proposed marijuana processing facility follows the letter of the law and is compliant with the legal requirement for a 1,000-foot setback from public areas. However, just with all other legislation, I assert that the following two common principles should apply as essential filters in consideration of any legislation: 1. “In best public interest,” i.e. the interests of the people who voted you to make decisions on their behalf and in their best interests and, 2. Common sense, i.e. full consideration of the impacted community’s views and any unintended consequences. As I read with ridicule the proposed legislation granting license to a marijuana processing facility across the street from well-regarded schools and a popular pediatric medical center, I can only assume that most of you on the council have not visited this growing and vibrant community of several thousand singlefamily homes, two apartment complexes, a retirement community, a golf course, several parks and public trails. Let me take the time to share some basic facts with you! 1. The proposed facility is right across the street from the well-regarded Goddard School and Pediatric associates – the popular pediatric medical facility in this area. 2. The well-regarded Rosa Parks Elementary school is within close proximity to this proposed facility. This school, which is ranked among the top 10 schools in the state, is bursting at the seams with 800 kids in a school designed for 600, requiring the Lake Washington

School District to propose temporary rezoning to relieve pressure as well as a bond measure to construct a second elementary school. 3. The King County – presumably with the knowledge of this council-sanctioned a recently completed several-milliondollar multi-year project to add new roads, two traffic circles and widening of the two approach roads into the community, to deal with the growing traffic congestion. 4. The community’s miles of public trails are well used by the thousands of children within the community all through the year. The trails are in fact so well regarded that many friends and family come to use them. Now, here is a fact that you will not know through a cursory glance at Google/Bing maps – one of these well-used trails is probably much closer than the required 1,000-foot setback requirement. Does the fact that this trail is not maintained within an incorporated city mean kids using this trail should be at peril? 5. Last but not the least, the average price per square foot in this community has steadily grown to more than $228/ square foot in just the last year, way above the state average. Despite the above-average taxes that this community has been sending to the county, public safety is lax, resulting in several wellpublicized break-ins over the past 18 months. We have had to reduce it mostly through grassroots efforts like community watch. Has this council considered how you would address the impact from increased presence and pass through of individuals under the influence while you have so far not been able to provide protection against the simplest of crimes such as burglary?

Redmond Ridge is a fast-growing community with a population density akin to most suburban King County cities such as Redmond, Bellevue, Sammamish and Kirkland. It is not a rural area with 10-acre primarily farming lots, horses and gravel roads, as you may choose to project to pass this legislation through. Let me ask you this, would you vote yes to a piece of legislation that puts thousands of kids, the schools, a popular pediatric medical facility and a popular trail at risk in any of these cities? I suspect the answer is “no”! Then why single out Redmond Ridge or any other high-population density area of unincorporated King County, just because it falls in an area of unintended legislative oversight? As you cast your vote, consider if you would be able to look into the eyes of an elementary school child and tell him/ her that he/she cannot walk home alone with his/her friends after school now, or to that stressed parent trying to take their child in distress in to see the doctor – “we cannot guarantee the safety of your car anymore” or to that young family that enjoys a nice trek through the woods all year round that two-thirds of their favorite trail is now off limits to them? With respect, I submit to you that a marijuana processing and distribution center within a high-density population area such as Redmond Ridge, as this legislation proposes to legalize does not meet the basic tenants of “in best public interest” and “common sense.” As people’s representatives, I am expecting a unanimous “no” vote from you as it is the only vote that is in the best interest of those that you represent.

ecember marks the second month of QFC’s annual charitable giving program, Bringing Hope to the Table, to raise cash and food donations for hungry people in the Northwest. This program began at QFC in 2002 and benefits two outstanding non-profit organizations that are working to end hunger in the northwest, Food Lifeline in the Seattle area and the Oregon Food Bank in the Portland area. Between them, these organizations distribute food to hundreds of food banks, meal programs and shelters every week. In the course of a year Food Lifeline will distribute over 36 million pounds of food, or more than 30 million meals, to over 744,000 people. “Due to the continued recession and long-term unemployment, the number of hungry people in our communities continues to grow, but QFC customers are making a difference!” notes Amy Shipman, Grocery Rescue Program Manager at Food Lifeline. “During the winter months, many families make the tough decision to pay the heat bill or buy food for the table. Bringing Hope to the Table makes sure that families

have enough to eat beyond the holidays and whenever there is need.” According to Food Lifeline, “the very low income people that food banks and meal programs have traditionally served still have tremendous need and represent 53% of the people who seek food assistance in Western Washington.” Of the clients that Food Lifeline serves, 35% are children and 14% are seniors. Oregon Food Bank reports similar numbers. Children age 17 or younger make up 34% of the recipients in the households served by OFB and adults 55 and above account for 18% of their clientele. The donations that QFC collects during this two month period will help feed hungry people for several months to come. Food donations typically drop in quantity after the holidays, so the surplus donations collected now will help fill the gap until donations pick up in mid to late spring. Your cash donations are also vital to keeping the food collection and distribution operations going. They help pay operating expenses to keep the freezers running and the trucks on the road.

There are many ways in which QFC customers can help support Bringing Hope to the Table. You can buy a pre-made bag of groceries for $10 that contains dry-good grocery items. You can also purchase food bank recommended items and donate those in our donation bins. There will be items throughout the store marked with special tags to make it easy to know what

to purchase and donate. QFC will also have $1 and $5 donation cards available at the checkstand as well as $10 virtual bag donation cards. You can also donate your spare change into coin collection boxes available at your checkstand. Thank you for supporting QFC, Food Lifeline and Oregon Food Bank to help feed the hungry during the holiday season and beyond. Paid Adver tisement

Hall named classroom hero, honored at Seahawks game

Redmond Elementary teacher, Amanda Hall (left) and school psychologist Talia McKay are all smiles at Monday night’s Seahawks game.

Amanda Hall’s work with kids began when she was just a kid herself. When she was in second grade, she would give up her lunches and recesses to spend time with some of the special-needs students at her school. When she got older, she earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Washington State University (WSU) in 2008 and started working in the court systems, but found she missed interacting with kids. So she went back to school at City University and earned her master’s degree in teaching special education in 2011. Now she works as a behavior intervention teacher at Redmond Elementary School, overseeing a class of kindergartners through third-graders. “Working with these kids is just perfect,” she said about her job. Hall learned the feeling went both ways as she

received quite the surprise on Nov. 26 when she was presented with $1,000 to go toward her classroom and a ticket to Monday night’s Seattle Seahawks game against the New Orleans Saints as part of the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom. “It was unbelievable,” she said about learning she’d been named a Hero in the Classroom. “I was just so honored and touched.” The Heroes in the Classroom program is a partnership between Symetra and the Seattle Seahawks that began in 2006 and honors teachers throughout the Puget Sound area for educational excellence. Hall is one of 16 K-12 teachers who will be honored during the 2013 NFL season. “Teachers are recognized in front of their students and peers at surprise inschool presentations and they receive a $1,000 donation for classroom books and supplies,” said Symetra media relations manager Diana McSweeney. “In addition, they receive tickets

Redmond Elementary principal Joyce Teshima wanted to be able to have as much of the staff present during the surprise in addition to Hall’s current and past students, so she arranged for things to happen during lunch in the school library. So she sent Hall an email saying she wanted to speak to her during lunch and planned to bring her to the library. It turned out that Hall didn’t read the email and was eating lunch in the staff break room. “I was actually eating lunch by myself, which I thought was very strange,” Hall said. Once Teshima located Hall, she brought her to the library for the surprise. “I was just dumbstruck,” Hall said, who was shocked to see that her mother had been notified, as well, and had made it that afternoon.


Also present for the surprise was parent Stacey Gardner, who nominated Hall for the honor. Gardner’s second-grade son Gavin has been in Hall’s class since the middle of last year. Gardner said Gavin had been struggling academically at their neighborhood school of Benjamin Rush Elementary School, telling her he was “not good at (school).” He was also having significant behavioral issues. Gavin transferred into Hall’s class in the middle of first grade as Ben Rush did not offer a behavior intervention program. “The change was just night and day,” Gardner said. In the past, she said Gavin often appeared depressed or upset after school. But once he was placed in Hall’s class, the boy began to get excited for school and would want to read and do nice things for his teacher. Gardner said her son loves the Seahawks and they would often attend home games. One time, [ more teacher page 8 ]

Washington STEM — a nonprofit launched in March 2011 — advocated successfully for improvement in STEM education in 2013. The Legislature passed, and Inslee signed into law, the comprehensive STEM education initiative, which includes

creation of a STEM Education Innovation Alliance and a STEM Benchmark Report Card. Inslee, who sat in on a question-and-answer session with McKinstry CEO Dean Allen, said his Christmas wish list includes companies providing mentoring and internships so that students will get excited about STEMrelated fields.

She also acknowledged that Hall does not have an easy job as she works with students with special needs, who may have given up and need extra motivation to want to do well academically. Hall’s classroom is also a self-contained classroom, Teshima pointed out, so she has her students all day and must teach to the curriculum of all four grade levels. “She was the perfect

To achieve this, there needs to be stellar instruction and curriculum and access to things like DNA sequencing machines, which Seattle’s Cleveland High School students are working on thanks to a federal grant, Inslee said. “I want to thank you

for what you’re doing. It’s made a big impact. I think we’re moving the needle on this thing,” the governor told the crowd. “I would ask all of you (business leaders) to look for ways to try to get your experience to share with a student somewhere, because it’s going to do great things to get them to follow you.”

With her love of sports, Hall said attending the game and being on the field — only a few feet away from the players — was unbelievable. The significance of Monday’s game also added to the experience. “It’s Monday Night Football versus the Saints,” she said, adding that she was a bit hoarse the next morning from all the cheering.

Hall has a few ideas for how she would like to use the $1,000. Ideally, she would like to look into a program with Little Bit Therapeutic Riding in Redmond in which students work with horses to learn social skills, empathy and compassion, how to express themselves and more. But that may be too pricey, so Hall said some other things the money could go toward include fun field trips, a new typing program and classroom books. “I have a lot of big readers,” she said.


Hall’s classroom is decorated with Seahawks and WSU memorabilia and uses sports-themed games and challenges to motivate students. For example, her classroom behavior chart is called “Quest to Seattle.” Students begin with the Miami Dolphins and as their behavior improves, they

Brad Smith eyed the crowd, stretched his arms out, opened his hands and smiled. He acknowledged the members of the Washington STEM board in front of him and likened them to an army, fighting on the front lines to bring science, technology, engineering and math education to the forefront for all students. “We have an opportunity, I believe, to become the first state in the country that gets computer science into every high school,” said Smith, Microsoft’s executive vice president and general counsel, Legal and Corporate Affairs. “(We need to) create the right kinds of incentives and provide training for teachers and let the word spread about the opportunities that this will create.” Smith, Gov.

Redmond Ridge residents worried about their safety after burglary

Rainier Beach High School sophomore and keynote speaker on Monday, said that taking a computer science class furthered her interest in the medical field. She’s dreamt of being a doctor since childhood and she’s taking large steps toward that goal. “I want to become a doctor that uses technology and medicine,” she said following the keynote speeches. “You can create apps that can help you find a person’s tumors, you can create programs that help you get the medical history of a person within one touch.” Charbonneau said he teaches “the hard classes” — chemistry, physics and engineering — at Zillah, but what he really strives to teach is confidence. “I started asking students what they wanted to learn about,” he said about what areas of those three classes were on the students’ minds. The Zillah students wanted to learn about robotics, so Charbonneau got some kits and they started investigating that area of engineering. Later, the teacher and some parents raised more than $25,000, bought 100 kits and offered them for free to any school in Washington that was up for delving into robotics. “If you’re a kid, you

should have access to STEM-related materials no matter where you are,” said Charbonneau, whose sixth annual Zillah Robot Challenge competition will take place this Saturday with more than 300 students from 43 high schools. “People say, ‘Oh OK, so you’re the robot teacher? You know how to teach (robotics)?’” he added. “I don’t have a clue. I don’t know how to program these things. Who the experts are are the students, and that’s the way it should be.”

announced the expansion of the organization’s growing system of regional STEM Networks, which bring educators, community leaders and STEM professionals together to help improve STEM learning and opportunities for students in their regions, especially students from lowincome backgrounds and communities of color. The STEM networks are also aligned with local economic development efforts.

passed an ordinance a few years ago requested by the Trilogy area (near Redmond Ridge) to put restrictions on solicitations. “Many were concerned that solicitors were coming to their doors and scouting out for burglaries. We have worked to keep the sheriff ’s department with as few cuts as possible and given (the sheriff ’s captain) more officers that he will put on patrol. That is our first priority,” Lambert added. Boon asks people to report anything suspicious to the KCSO. She said that Redmond Ridge

officials sent out an email blast to residents regarding the burglary and referred them to the KCSO e-policing website for safety ideas. On Nov. 19, the woman heard a loud knock on the front door and then heard the doorbell ring, Akers said. She was upstairs getting ready to leave the house and didn’t answer the door when she heard the men break a glass door in the back of the house and enter the residence. When they went upstairs, they found the woman. “It’s an open investigation and there doesn’t

appear to be any breaks in the case. No suspects have been identified,” Akers said. The deputy isn’t aware of any other burglaries in the Redmond Ridge area. “It appears to be random. They picked a house — something about the house made it look unoccupied and they took the chance there. It’s an unfortunate event that occurs in our society. They were probably shocked that someone was inside,” said Akers, who advises people to install a monitored security system in their homes if possible.

Smith said that Microsoft would be an ideal place for those STEM students to make their mark in their careers. “This place is, frankly, all about science, technology, engineering and math.

that people in the cities enjoy based on average response time,” said Boon, who added that Redmond Ridge hires offduty sheriffs. In an email to the Reporter, King County Council member Kathy Lambert said, according to KCSO statistics, there has not been an increase in crimes in the Redmond Ridge area after the cuts. “We have worked for years to protect the safety of the unincorporated area residents even through this long recession,” said Lambert, who noted that the council


Following a recent burglary on Redmond Ridge, during which two men broke through a glass door and tied up a female homeowner, the area’s Residential Owners Association President Jen Boon doesn’t think people in her community feel safe. The burglary took place at about 2 p.m. on Nov. 19 in the 8100 block of 229th Drive Northeast. The woman, who wasn’t injured, broke free after two black men ransacked the house and stole her cell phone and cash from

her purse, according to King County Sheriff ’s Office (KCSO) deputy Charlie Akers. She went to a neighbor’s house and called 911. “The neighbors are outright alarmed and disappointed to see the realized negative impacts of a King County Council that has cut the funding for the sheriffs in unincorporated King County,” Boon said. She feels the KCSO is doing the best it can to patrol the area with its current budget. “(Residents need to) be on a heightened sense of awareness since we do not have the coverage



Merriam-Webster defines appreciation as, “To understand the worth or importance of something

witnessed kids be ungrateful. The truth is that kids learn to be appreciative by watching others, especially their parents.

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. If that’s not happening, chances are you may feel tired, irritable and overwhelmed — making it much harder to stop and appreciate any situation. So don’t feel guilty about taking a break — a hot bath, walk around the neighborhood or even a night out.


A great way to build appreciation in a family is to take time to mention what you appreciate about each other, and what you are thankful for. You can do this in the car on the way to school or practice, even around the breakfast or dinner table. Older kids can be challenged to add why they are grateful. When parents are intentional about appreciating their children, they may begin to see their family in a whole new light—one where peace replaces worry, and struggles become opportunities to bond with your child. If you are not intentional, the moments of frustration will triumph over the good times and will erode at your child’s self-esteem and the relationship between you. Remember that it takes many compliments to overcome even one critical comment.

December 6, 2013 [13] RB uses such as Redmond Ridge, and thus no other developments are addressed in the proposal.”


A potential marijuana processing plant also has Redmond Ridge residents worried about the effects it may have on the community’s health and safety. “The concerns are on multiple fronts,” said Ritu Gupta, who has lived on the Ridge since 2004. The mother of two daughters, ages 7 and 10, said legalization of marijuana is still new, so there are still a lot of unknowns. For one, she said, they don’t know what side effects there may be from breathing air affected by a marijuana processing plant — pointing out that 50 years ago, people didn’t know how much damage could be caused through secondhand smoking. “We don’t know what we don’t know,” Gupta said. Safety is also a concern among residents. Sen. Andy Hill of Redmond also spoke at Monday’s council meeting after receiving more than 150 emails from concerned constituents over the course of the Thanksgiving weekend. He said a marijuana processing plant could go

many places, and questioned why someone would put one where there are so many children. “Is this the best place to put something like this?” he asked, adding that processing plants should be located in more industrial areas. Hill said marijuana is a heavily taxed commodity with a rate of 25 percent for the grower, seller and buyer, each. With such high taxes, a processing plant could potentially attract a lot of crime as some people would want to break in to steal the pot and sell it on the black market. Virginia Onu, who has lived on Redmond Ridge for nine years, said they

already have a difficult time receiving adequate response times from the King County Sheriff ’s Office and the potential of more crime would only compound the issue. The site of the potential processing facility meets the state’s required distance of 1,000 feet from public parks, schools and daycares, but there are trails and private parks located within that buffer zone that are not included. In addition, Rosa Parks Elementary School and The Goddard School are within walking distance. “My concern is responsible zoning, not a debate on whether marijuana should be legal,” said Onu, who

spoke at Monday’s meeting, as well. “People hold diverse views on the legality of marijuana but I would hope that despite our diverse views on this issue we can all agree that the zoning regarding these facilities should be responsible. A heavily populated neighborhood is simply not the place for such a facility.” Like Hill, she said such a facility should be located in an industrial zone. Onu, along with Boon and Gupta all said just because something is legal, does not make it socially responsible. “The reason for not having these facilities in these neighborhoods is sound,” Onu said.


on their health and safety, they are also concerned about the fact that Redmond Ridge is singled out specifically in the proposed ordinance. Section 8 allows marijuana processing in several zones and specifically, “in the Redmond Ridge Business Park, processing at different scales and intensity is allowed depending on whether the area is inside or outside the urban growth area and the type of permitting process.” In addition, Section 9 states, “(in) the Redmond Ridge Business Park indoor marijuana production is allowed with size limits based on the permitting process.” “The proposed ordinance would allow up to 10,000 square feet of production and/or processing as a permitted use in the Redmond Ridge Business Park and up to 30,000 square feet as a conditional use permit,” said Jarrod Lewis with King County’s Department of Permitting and Environmental Review. “The same provision applies to both Section 8 for processing and Section 9 for production.” He said the addition of the Redmond Ridge Business Park to the proposed ordinance was added to the second draft that was published Oct. 17. King County held four public outreach meetings in the summer and Lewis said they received feedback that these uses (production and/ or processing) should be allowed in the business park. Jen Boon, president of the Redmond Ridge Residential Owners Association, said this change was made in response to one piece of feedback the county received, which is why they are the only community mentioned by name in the ordinance. She added that she hopes when King County Council members saw the 120 or so Redmond

Ridge residents at Monday’s meeting opposing the ordinance, they would take that feedback into consideration. Boon said the Redmond Ridge community’s concern is not exactly about being “anti-pot.” It’s about how they feel the same rules should apply to the entire county and not just their community. Lewis said the Redmond Ridge Business Park is located within the urban growth area — as mandated by the Growth Management Act (GMA) and has similar uses to parcels zoned as community business (CB) or regional business (RB). The development agreement for Redmond Ridge allows uses in the business park that are very similar to existing CB and RB uses, he said, and the proposed ordinance seeks to allow marijuana processing and production in CB and RB zones. “The public comment questioned why a business park with current uses similar to uses allowed in the CB and RB zones should not allow similarly proposed marijuana business uses,” Lewis said. “There are no other UR (Urban Reserve) zoned business parks in King County that have a developer agreement, which overlays similar CB and

Bear Creek’s South headed to Goodwill Series Local 14-year-old will represent United States at event in Australia ANDY NYSTROM

Dean South knew that his son, Grant, would be a baseball player when he just 2 years old. With father and son both sporting wide grins, Dean told the tale of Grant’s foray into baseball: “When he was just able to sit up, I would roll him a basketball and a football and a baseball on the carpet, and he would bat the other ones away and roll back the baseball.” Three years later, Grant began playing baseball for real. Now age 14 and standing nearly 5-foot-11, Grant — a Bear Creek School freshman — has garnered some most valuable player awards with his local baseball squads. When he’s catching, he call the pitches. When he takes the mound himself, Grant’s pitches have been clocked at 84 mph from the 60-foot, 6-inch mark. And on the hitting front, he batted over .500 at the elite IMG Academy Wood Bat League camp in Bradenton, Fla., last summer. “I just tried as hard as I could and was aggressive when I was hitting and catching,” Grant said modestly about his camp experience. At the camp, the right-hander attracted the attention of one of the coaches, who also happens to be a professional scout. Because of the Woodinville resident’s stellar performance at the camp, he was selected to be a member of the United States’ Reds 16U team at the Goodwill Series from Dec.

The Reds will play 12 games against the state teams of South Australia, Western Australia and Singapore. The Goodwill Series is designed to help players prepare for a future career as a baseball player, either at the collegiate or professional levels. “It feels great, because play-

ing in the MLB (Major League Baseball) is my dream, so I think it’s one step closer,” said Grant, who added that he’s honored to represent the United States at the Goodwill Series. Added Dean: “I’m very proud of him. I’m just the chauffeur — he does all the work, he’s the one who wants to take the lessons and who goes out and practices.”

Grant hones his skills every day, utilizing the batting cage at the South home, taking hitting and pitching lessons and working on his speed and agility. He’s also on a diet that helps keep him in shape to excel on the field. The lone Washington state player won’t meet his Goodwill Series teammates until they board a plane in Dallas together. They’ll get to know each other on the lengthy flight to Australia and then it will be all work with their coaches to get the team ready for the series. Craig Bishop, head coach for the Kirkland Merchants 18U squad, is Grant’s hitting instructor and has known him for the last three years. “He’s one of those kids who’s uniquely self-driven. He’s competitive and has the desire and love for baseball,” said Bishop, who coached Jon Lester, Travis Snyder and Andy Sisco before they broke into the big leagues. Bishop noted that for a young player, Grant has a great work ethic to go along with size, strength and athleticism. As a bonus, his parents keep him grounded and focused on school, the coach added. “I think he has the ability to play in college and beyond if the cards work out with him,” Bishop said. Grant, who will play for the combined Bear Creek/Overlake team (the Growls) in the spring and the Merchants’ 16U team when the high school season ends, said he never stops thinking about baseball — even when he’s at school. For him, the best part about playing baseball is “leading a team and (having) a good influence on everybody to try as hard as they can.”

This season, Eastside Catholic High sophomore quarterback Harley Kirsch of Redmond has set seven individual school records, helped break five team offensive records and led the Crusaders to their second straight 3A state championship appearance. Kirsch was also named the 3A Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) Athlete of the Week for week 13 for his efforts in the state semifinal win last Friday over O’Dea High, 28-14. Kirsch threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns in the game at the Tacoma Dome. The Crusaders will face Bellevue High in the WIAA 3A state football championship game at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Tacoma Dome. “Since he first stepped on campus, Harley has been an amazing leader, a focused student and an incredible competitor,” said head coach Jeremy Thielbahr. “He is one of the best sophomore quarterbacks in the country and has huge upside and potential. But most of all, he’s a great leader and an even better person.” Kirsch is currently playing with four other sophomores from Redmond who all start on varsity: Jakob Jackson, Eric Medeiros, James Jolliffe and Juan Sacchi.

Redmond players help Eastside Crusaders win junior football title The Eastside Crusaders won their second junior title in the last three years. Courtesy photo games. The Eastside Crusaders players for the Catholic faith-based team live in Redmond, Federal Way, Carnation, Duvall, Bellevue, Seattle and Sammamish. The morning after the championship win, assistant coach Jen Heger emailed players and parents, demonstrating the Crusaders’ philosophy: “A championship in middle school should not and will not be the highlight of these boys’ lives. It is, however, a great template in moving forward. I hope that these young men have learned to work hard with goal oriented determination, bounce back and learn from mistakes, to handle pressure with grace, to have fun, lead, follow, adjust, be part of a larger group and win with both pride and humility. These are traits that will serve them well long after they’ve misplaced their championship medals.”

2013 team statistics

• 256 offensive points • 25 points scored against • 7,200 flights of stairs run in 42 practices, equaling two-thirds the height of Mt. Rainier.


The Eastside Crusaders Junior Football team capped off a 9-0 season with a 27-0 win over the Mountlake Terrace Hawks on Nov. 2 at Highline Stadium. The win marks the second time in three years this Crusaders team has captured the title of Northwest Junior Football League champions. “We just did what we needed to do all season and we got it done,” said Redmond’s Duncan Heger. Other Redmond players are: Alex Coney, Anthony Pella, Jonathan Watson, Max Englehart and Ty Jackson. The Eastside Crusaders program, which was founded 10 years ago, is organized by age and weight with six levels of play for ages 6-14. Fifteen of this year’s junior players were part of both the 2011 and 2013 championship teams: David Cody, Coney, Englehart, Mitch Flippo, Heger, Jackson, Dan Leach, Ben Lombardi, Zach Sanidad, Carson Stockwell, Owen Stoutt, Dylan Strode, Watson, Chandler Wills and Andrew Yan. Flippo, who plays wide receiver, told his parents after the win, “Our team really worked hard from Day One to the last practice to get where we are today.” Teammate Watson added, “We worked together as a team and came ready to compete every Saturday.”   Over the last three years, the team has compiled a 22-4 record, including playoff

Redmond city code, I think people should be allowed to put up whatever they want,” said Erin Zipfel, an eight-year Redmond resident. Added Valerie Byram, a 40-year Redmond resident: “I have friends who are very religious and they would want it to be remembered as Christ’s birthday. Personally, we’re both musicians (Byram and her companion) and we love Christmas carols, so I’m just fine if people sing Christmas carols a whole lot.” One Facebook commenter wrote: “I’m not recommending that these signs be treated differently from other signs. But why do we need to allow any signs of this type in public spaces? It’s just littering. If somebody wants to make a free speech argument, let them stand there and hold the sign. And take it home when their feet get too cold.” Another Facebook commenter from Vancouver, Wash., said her sister who lives in Virginia heard the sign story on the radio and noted: “I just want to congratulate the City of Redmond for allowing these signs. I just want to say ‘right on Redmond.’ God bless you and may you have a very Merry Christmas.”

RUMC has also been very supportive of the program, from providing encouragement for Muscott, Kandeler and Ryberg, to providing the actual kitchen and space to serve the community. “(RUMC pastor Cara Scriven) basically tells us, ‘Go out into the world and do good,’” Muscott said. “She challenges us.” Scriven said it has been inspiring for her — as a person of faith — to see how much hard work the three coordinators are putting in to make Open Kitchen successful. “For me, it is a privilege to work with people who are so passionate about other people eating,” she said. “I am so proud of them. They’re doing what I tell them to do. They’re doing what their faith is telling them to do.” Scriven added that it has been amazing to watch the greater community — beyond the three women and the church membership — get involved and help, as well. “It’s just fabulous to know it’s more than just us who see the need,” she said. Open Kitchen will be open to the community on Christmas and New Year’s Day. For more information, visit openkitchenredmond. com.

Two Reporter readers notified the paper and asked who posted the signs and if they were going to be removed. Marchione said the city hasn’t received any complaints. “This is the second year I’ve seen the signs. They’re in a public right-of-way and we are treating them like a freedom-of-speech issue,” said Marchione, adding that the poster removed the signs after Christmas last year. Marchione said the city will leave the signs in public places; as for the signs on church property, it’s their choice to have them there, he said. “Redmond’s been very good in celebrating all kinds of religious and cultural traditions (an example is Ananda Mela: Joyful Festival of India),” said Marchione, who’s seen seven or eight signs. “I don’t see it as inflammatory. I see it as an expression of a few major traditions that are celebrated this time of year.” The Reporter spoke with two people at the downtown library on Monday evening about their views on the signs. “As long as it meets

in Kirkland, coffee and volunteers from the Bella Bottega Starbucks and leftover fried chicken — which would be repurposed for soups — from Ezell’s Chicken in Woodinville. “We would not have gotten as far as we’ve come without the support of this community,” Muscott said. Peter Whyman, a volunteer with Open Kitchen, said they have seen a lot of support and enthusiasm from individual community members, as well, not just businesses. “A lot of folks want to help,” he said. Kandeler added that in addition to connecting with community members, it has been great to see volunteers like Whyman connect with each other, as well. Open Kitchen has also received a lot of support from Nourishing Networks, a coalition that began as an initiative of Redmondbased Hopelink and brings together people within the community to help fill the gaps that the current network of social services is unable to meet. “They know a lot of people,” Muscott said about the organization helping them get the word out about Open Kitchen.

Day of the Dead celebration was a success

Committee, recently came together for the annual Day of the Dead Celebration. There was face painting, sugar skull decorating, calavera making and a bingo-styled game call Loteria, where prizes were given to winners. More than 100 volunteers and participants were involved in the celebration and many received extra credit from teachers for learning about the culture of the celebration. “This is really fun,” one attendee said that night. “I never knew what this was all about. I made a skull that I can take home.” Ken Wong, teen programs administrator for the City of Redmond, said, “With the rich diversity that Redmond has in its residents, it is great to be able to share some of the cultural celebrations that our community has to offer. The teen center has been a leader in celebrating the diversity of our community.”

At the conclusion of the evening, Commander Leingage was presented with a check for $4,080 and a flag that was flown above the nation’s capital. “I served in the military almost 30 years ago and have ever since wanted to do something to support our troops. What better way than a fundraiser for the USO,” said Black. “We were honored to have Commander Leingage attend, and could not have a more fitting movie than ‘Captain Phillips’ — who was rescued by the Navy Seals.”
