Community comes together to celebrate Redmond Lights SAMANTHA PAK

Below-freezing temperatures were not enough to deter the greater Redmond community from coming out to celebrate the 15th annual Redmond Lights festival on Saturday. From the usual wool coats, knitted caps, scarves and gloves, to the odd pairs of ski and snow pants, people bundled up in extra-thick layers to ward off the cold and

enjoy the festivities. Some members of the canine community present even donned sweaters to stay warm. “This is my 10th (Redmond Lights) and this definitely is the coldest,” said Jill Smith, a business liaison for the City of Redmond, as she handed out Think Redmond blinkers to attendees. This was Sanli Choe’s first time attending the festival but the five-year Redmond resident was not fazed by the cold weather. Instead, he chose to stick close to a burn [ more LIGHTS page 7 ]

After a standingroom-only, five-hour marathon council session on Monday, which included debate on multiple amendments, King County Council members removed the Redmond Ridge area from the list of places where marijuana can be grown and processed in King County. Council members also passed regulations defining where marijuana can be grown, processed and sold in the unincorporated areas of the county. “I am very pleased that the council resolved this zoning issue,” said council member Kathy Lambert, who represents Redmond Ridge. “Marijuana processing and growing does not belong in a very dense family friendly community like Redmond Ridge. It is the most densely populated area known as an Urban Planned Development and is the only one in unincorporated King County.”


Lambert’s District 3 is the largest in the county. She said the other King County Council members do not deal with her district on a regular basis; some have never seen it, while others have not visited in many years. As

a result, she said, they did not realize how heavily populated some areas, such as Redmond Ridge, are. “I see their districts more than they see my district,” Lambert said. Redmond Ridge residents were out in force for last week’s public testimony and Monday’s meeting. In addition to testifying, they also called and emailed council members to express their concerns. Lambert said at one point, she received upwards of 500 emails in one day, whereas she usually receives 200-400 emails on a daily basis. Jen Boon, president of the Redmond Ridge Residential Owners Association, said Redmond Ridge residents came together “as never before” on the issue. They asked that “large, indoor marijuana factories not be sandwiched into (their) neighborhood, but be appropriately placed in more industrial areas, the same as any other large factory should.” “Residents found agreement for removing exclusive neighborhood reference in the ordinance from those in our neighborhood and beyond,” she said. “We were especially impressed by the support, leadership and guidance of council member Kathy Lambert and Sen. Andy Hill.” [ more POT page 8 ]

Overlake School teachers save co-worker with CPR, defibrillation A 54-year-old male teacher survived a sudden cardiac arrest on Dec. 5, thanks to the efforts of co-workers at The Overlake School in Redmond. The man was teaching his music class at about 9:30 a.m. when he suddenly collapsed and became unconscious. “He survived because of the quick actions of staff at the school,” reads a City of Redmond Fire Depart-

ment (RFD) press release. When teachers in adjoining classrooms responded to calls for help, they knew what to do as one of the teachers is the instructor for CPR and automatic external defibrillation (AED) courses at the school. The group of teachers and staff quickly provided CPR and “shocked” the man into a survivable cardiac rhythm, according to

the press release. As Medic One and RFD responders arrived on scene, the man began showing signs of life. The patient was stabilized by EMTs and paramedics and quickly transported to EvergreenHealth. RFD firefighter and paramedic Mike Hilley said the Overlake teacher was released from the hospital on Tuesday. Hilley also praised the

Yen awarded Microsoft the Corporate Award in recognition for the company’s continuous support for Toastmasters activities throughout Microsoft. Lisa Brummel, Microsoft’s executive vice president for human resources, attended the meeting, accepted the award and spoke about the importance of communication skills in the fast-paced high-tech environment.

water pipes exist in unheated spaces like attics and crawlspaces, there is always danger of the pipes freezing this time of year. Often, frozen pipes go undiscovered until it warms up enough for the ice inside the pipes to melt and reveal the leaks from the ice damaged pipes. “Your firefighters want you to know: You should locate your water shut-off valves for appliances, water fixtures and/or your domestic supply to your residence. Be sure other family members know how to do it when you’re away from home. Your firefighters may be delayed due to numerous other similar calls, so the more you can do to stop the flooding, the better off your personal belongings will be.”

advised the arriving crews that they had been awakened by their smoke detector. No injuries were reported. Kirkland Fire, Bellevue Fire and Woodinville Fire apparatus were included on the initial dispatch due to the address and RFD’s predetermined response plans. Due to the quick action of the first arriving units, they were not used and returned to their response districts. The fires on the exterior wall, roof and underneath the mobile home were extinguished and minimal damage to the interior and furnishings occurred.

The crews overcame the obstacle of a broken fire hydrant by extending their firehose supply line across the main road and Redmond Police blocked the road to traffic. The cause of the fire is under investigation by Redmond Fire investigators. RFD advises residents that, “A working smoke detector made a remarkable difference in the early detection and safe evacuation for the occupants. “We remind you, during this cold weather to exercise caution in extended fireplace and stove use, warming frozen pipes and using auxiliary heat sources.”

Redmond Fire Department (RFD) units responded to a confirmed structure fire within the Friendly Village mobile home park on Northeast 95th Street at 3:55 a.m. last Saturday. The first arriving engine found fire on an exterior wall with smoke conditions increasing inside, according to a press release. The occupants were out of the home and

Just before 3:30 p.m. last Saturday, five Redmond Fire Department (RFD) firefighters were working on diverting the water leak on the third-floor master bedroom of one of the buildings located in The Heights at Bear Creek complex in the 17700 block of Northeast 90th Street. According to a press release, due to water saturation, the entire plaster board ceiling of the bedroom collapsed onto the crew. When the crew members self-extricated themselves out of the debris, they realized one crew member sustained injuries to his left shoulder and leg. The injured firefighter was evacuated from the structure, then evaluated and treated by Redmond firefighters and paramedics from Redmond’s Medic

team of teachers who worked on the man before first responders arrived. “These guys did a remarkable job,” he said. “It was almost professional.” The press release read, “This is the model that demonstrates how communities can come together to save a life.

Christmas signs: It’s OK to say what you feel The holiday season certainly kicked into high gear in several ways last week. When December hits, the weather turns cold on us, the shopping “mauls” get crowded — and someone in Redmond brought the city regional and national attention by posting “It’s OK to say, Merry Christmas” signs around town for the second year in a row. In our question of the week, 84.2 percent of the readers who answered said they approve of the signs, while 15.8 percent of readers said no to the green signs with white lettering, which are also emblazoned with Bible verses. According to Redmond Mayor John Marchione last week, no one complained to the city about the signs and they’re “treating them like a freedom-of-speech issue.” The signs were posted in public right-of-ways near City Hall, the downtown library and in front of some schools and churches. As of Tuesday night, the sign near City Hall was missing and one of the signs near the library was moved in front of some bushes, so apparently some people are taking their viewpoints into their own hands. I think it’s commendable for the sign poster to say how he or she feels during the holidays. It’s done anonymously, but they’re still making their point and getting people talking about it. It’s generated lively pro and con comments on our website and Facebook page and I’m sure people are discussAndy Nystrom

A citizen’s landscaping suggestion Recently, Redmond Public Works improved public property along Northeast 95th Street between Avondale Road Northeast and 184th Avenue Northeast. A new sidewalk was installed along with some peripheral asphalt. Between these applications, a bed of sod was applied to beautify the surroundings. Unfortunately, an old-time practice at this location has been for drivers to pull off the road to make a phone call or fill out their paperwork. They’re still doing it, and because of this action, the new sod laid now looks like a bad high-country road and is very unsightful. If it is allowed to continue, the sidewalk will be next to be trashed and all will have been a complete waste of money and intent. I would suggest that the city reconfigure the space between the sidewalk and roadway, which has a space of 3 feet to 10 feet from one end of the block to the other, to be planted with a low-lying bush ala the rose bushes along 140th Avenue Northeast just off of Old Redmond Road. They would serve as a buffer in protection of not only the sod but also the person who might be walking along the new sidewalk. Maybe 20 plants maximum could be spaced, perhaps costing under $500.

ing this with friends, family members and colleagues, as well. The story ran on the national news and people visited our site to let us know about it and give their two cents worth about the signs. It is OK to say, “Merry Christmas” … and “Happy Holidays,” “Happy Hanukkah,” “Happy Kwanzaa” and whatever else you choose to say, not just during this time of the year but all year round during other cultural celebrations, as well. Whether it’s the holidays or every day, it is OK to be open-minded and listen to others’ views and maybe learn something from them along the way. It’s a two-way street, though, and others need to give us an equal say, even if they don’t agree with our viewpoint. Here’s a few website and Facebook comments from readers about the signs. If you’re

moved to speak out on the issue, drop me a line at • “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.” • “On my way to Redmond to pull them down.” • “I have no problem with anyone wishing anyone a happy anything. But I’m assuming they sign posters will be equally cheery when someone posts signs wishing them a blessed Ramadan. Right?” • “I would rather see these signs than the useless politician endorsements.”

Keeping kids in school is the best crime-prevention policy DAN SATTERBERG King County Prosecutor

Many people are surprised when I tell them that we have a Truancy Dropout Prevention Unit in the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. “Shouldn’t you be going after the serious criminals instead of kids who skip school?” they ask. The truth is that when it comes to protecting public safety, there is no better strategy than making sure that every child succeeds in school. Under Washington law, school attendance is mandatory up until age 16. This is part of a package of laws called the “Becca laws” named after a 13-year-old girl who dropped out of school, ran away from home and was murdered by a sex offender in Spokane in the mid-1990s. The Legislature knew, as we know now, that dropping out of school

puts young people at an extreme risk of being crime victims and criminal offenders. In fact, young people who drop out of high school are five times more likely to go to prison than their classmates who earn a high school diploma. People who attend some amount of college are five times less likely to go to prison than those with a high school education. Every layer of education is like a protective blanket that protects the potential of that young person and protects our community. Washington’s truancy law says that any child who misses seven days of school in a month, or 10 in a quarter, is officially “truant.” Although school districts are required to file a truancy petition at this point, they are also required to take steps to re-engage students in school. My office works


with school districts throughout King County to host workshops designed to understand why the student is missing school. At the end of the workshop, the school, the student and the parents or guardian sign an agreement designed to re-engage the student with an educational track. The law is a court-based scheme, but I am more interested in having the youth attend school than attend court. Only if a student continues to fail to attend school after a workshop agreement is signed, do we take the next step and pursue a petition with the juvenile court. Fewer than 10 percent of the 1,200 petitions filed last school year ended up in court, where students and their parents faced additional court-based consequences. We know that truancy is a red flag that leads to dropping out of school, and increases the chance for risky behaviors, substance abuse and involvement in the criminal justice system. School districts, teachers and your prosecuting attorney are working hard to keep students from dropping out of school. It is in the best interest of the child and the community.

Council meets with legislators to discuss transportation and more


This week’s…


Police Blotter The police blotter feature is both a description of a small selection of police incidents and a statistical roundup of all calls to the Redmond Police Department that are dispatched to on-duty police officers. The Redmond Reporter Police Blotter is not intended to be representative of all police calls originating in Redmond, which gets more than 500 calls (emergency and nonemergency) per week.

Tuesday, Dec. 10 Theft: A female in the 18200 block of Northeast 98th Place on Education Hill was arrested at 11:58 p.m. for possessing a stolen phone. DUI: A resident in the 3800 block of West Lake Sammamish Parkway in Overlake was arrested for driving under the influence following a traffic collision at 11:20 p.m. Stolen computers: At 7:45 p.m., Redmond police responded to a theft in the 15800 block of Northeast 98th Way on Education Hill where computers were stolen. Shoplifting: At 4:36 p.m., officers arrested two shoplifters in the 2200 block of 148th Avenue Northeast in Overlake. Not-so-grand theft auto: At 3:10 p.m., Redmond police responded to an attempted automobile theft in the 8200 block of 165th Avenue Northeast on Education Hill.

Allen said the city is ready to go with the Capstone Project — the biggest mixed-use project in the city’s history — and the council urges the Legislature to develop and enact a transportation investment package, which will help move that project and other ones along. “We’re shovel ready and we’ve got developers that are building, and so to hold that growth back is going to have an economic impact on the region and certainly on the City of Redmond,” she said. Proposed King County Metro cuts could also affect the Redmond area and the council raised concern about that, as well. Allen, who sits on the King County Regional Transit Committee, noted that many of the Eastside’s park and rides fill up quickly and legislators also need to address this problem. On the WTC2 front, council member John

Stilin feels that the city has to find ways to incentivize startup businesses to set up in Redmond and flourish. “They need money to operate and survive. I think if we make investments in technology and get them started up and incubated here, that’s really good for us and then it builds up a stronger network of businesses,” he said. “We’re looking for whatever support we can get to make those businesses stay and grow here.” Hunter said the key issue for tech startups is talent, so investing in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in schools will make for a stronger workforce. He added about Washington: “This is the best place from a tax environment for a company like Microsoft or even any of these small companies” who bring in revenue to thrive.

For its last priority, Redmond will join the Association of Washington Cities and focus on enhancing revenues and protecting stateshared revenues such as liquor taxes and profits and municipal criminal justice assistance. The city also aims to protect revenue that funds auto theft and identification theft prevention, basic

law enforcement academy training, registered sex offender address verification, public health, mental health and housing assistance. “We’re asking for the growth potential back, so that as our costs rise, we can have some sort of mechanism to keep up with inflation,” Marchione said to the legislators regarding funding.

11435 Avondale Rd NE, Redmond


Redmond Mayor John Marchione and City Council members discussed their top three priorities — transportation, Washington Tech Cities Coalition (WTC2) and state-shared revenues — with a trio of legislators on Tuesday night in their annual meeting at Redmond City Hall. In a relaxed atmosphere, the Redmond group sat around a table with Sen. Rodney Tom and Rep. Ross Hunter of the 48th Legislative District and Rep. Roger Goodman of the 45th Legislative District. They munched on sandwiches and shared their thoughts on the issues. Funding for the 148th/ Overlake Access Ramp and other State Route 520 Corridor Plan projects are key, according to the council, which praised the House and Senate’s proposals to

include $35.1 million for construction of the ramp. That project is critical to the development of the Capstone Development project on the old Group Health site, the council wrote in its meeting agenda. The mixed-use project will feature 1.2 million square feet of office space, a 200-room hotel and 1,400 units of housing surrounding a 3-acre park. Capstone hopes to break ground next year on the $250 million first phase of the project. Tom said that the $900 million Capstone project is one of the state’s most protected projects, “simply because it pays for itself. Just the sales tax off of the construction pays for the $35.1 million.” Capstone has estimated that the project will generate enough sales tax revenue to pay for itself twice; the company purchased the 28-acre space for $32.5 million last March. Council member Kim

Vehicle prowl: Redmond police investigated a car prowl at 1:17 p.m. from the 3500 block of 167th Court Northeast in Overlake. No suspect was identified.

Thursday, Dec. 5 Stolen cell phone: Redmond police responded to the report of a stolen cell phone at 8:22 p.m. from the 15900 block of Northeast 85th Street on Education Hill. Theft: At 2:14 p.m., officers investigated the theft of a security camera from the stairwell of an apartment building in the 7800 block of 170th Place Northeast downtown. No suspect information is available at this time. Shoplifting: Redmond police arrested two females at 2:12 p.m. after they were caught shoplifting at a retail store in the 2200 block of 148th Avenue Northeast in Overlake. They will be charged through investigation.

Argentinian educators tour STEM High School

Ten representatives from Argentina visited STEM High School in Redmond on Friday to learn and ask questions about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education as part of the Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program. STEM students turned the tables on the guests, asking them questions about Argentina when they visited a Spanish classroom. The Spanish class is currently studying Christmas and New Year’s traditions in Spanish-speaking countries, so the students asked about those traditions in Argentina. The guests explained that many people in Argentina have barbecues for these holidays, since it is summer there during the holidays. In addition to answering student questions about Argentina in their native language, the guests discussed STEM education issues with principal Cindy Duenas,

including best practices for attracting students to the sciences. Duenas reviewed how the STEM school was established and the programs currently being offered. The guests also spent time observing STEM classrooms including environmental science, Advanced Placement (AP) psychology, engineering, programming, AP biology, Photoshop and AP chemistry. The goal of their visit is to examine issues pertaining to STEM education, including key elements in the design and delivery of STEM education. Over the course of about two weeks, the group will travel throughout the U.S. to discuss STEM education programs, strategies and development. The International Visitor Leadership Program participants were: Mariano Manuel Barraco, assistant professor of science at University of Buenos Aires (UBA); Paula

Cramer, adjunct investigator at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET); Maria Florencia Di Mauro, researcher/professor at University of Mar Del Plata; Pablo Matias Factorovich, consultant at the Sadosky Foundation; Andrea Paula Goldin, post-doctoral fellow researcher of the neuroscience laboratory at UBA; Monica Beatriz Mendoza, professional technician for Technology and Productive Innovation at the Ministry Of Science; Julieta Molinas, author of Natural Sciences Area, Estrada Editorial; Guadalupe Nogues, biology professor at Instituto Libre De Segunda Ensenanza; Milena Luciana Rosenzvit, professor in the Department of Ecology, Genetics and Evolution, faculty of natural sciences at UBA; and Gonzalo Esteban Zabala, researcher in robotic education at the Center for High Studies in Information Technology.

selection will not vary too much from one geographical region to another. “The idea is we’re always trying to project that Levi’s sound,” he said, though he added they do try to bring a bit — about 20 percent — of local flavor to their playlists as they want to be globally consistent, but regionally relevant.

barrel to stay warm, toasting marshmallows for s’mores as well as some cupcakes for a warm treat. Suzanne Welch, who moved to downtown Redmond in June, was also attending Redmond Lights for the first time this year. “It’s awesome,” she said about the festivities, adding that the event took her Christmas spirit up a notch. Since she and her family have moved to town, Welch said they have attended the various events the city has put on such as Derby Days as well as cultural events like Ananda Mela. Leading up to Redmond Lights, she said they had been looking forward to the tree lighting at City Hall as they had seen it being wrapped up in lights in the days leading up to the event. Despite the excitement leading up to the annual event, Welch admitted the cold weather raised a few questions in their household about whether they would be attending. But an unexpected turn of events at home confirmed their attendance. “We actually lost power,” she said. Lisa Rhodes, events and marketing administrator for the City of Redmond, said they were thrilled with the event’s turnout, despite it being the coldest night of the year (so far). “We don’t have our final attendance estimations done yet, but from the reports that I do have, it looks like we were at about the same attendance as 2012,” she said, adding that this totals out to roughly 10,000 over the course of the day and night. King County Council member Kathy Lambert was also present and has attended Redmond Lights every year since its inception. She said one of her favorite things about the event is seeing people from the community she normally wouldn’t see. “I love how the holidays bring out the community spirit,” she said. A self-confessed “lights addict,” Lambert said she also admires all the lights of Redmond Lights.

In addition to the tree lighting, one of the other highlights from Saturday’s event was the opening of the Redmond Central Connector (RCC). “It’s a very special night…As longtime Redmond residents know, this was an abandoned railroad,” Redmond Mayor John Marchione said, referring to the RCC’s path. During his remarks leading up to the tree lighting, Marchione encouraged people to use and enjoy the newly opened trail, which they got to do for the first time during the traditional Redmond Lights luminary walk. This year, event organizers changed the walk’s path to connect the Sammamish River Trail with the RCC and head east into the downtown core, ending along the trail at 166th Avenue Northeast, near ERRATIC, public artist John Fleming’s sculpture of metal, glass and interactive light. While walking the newly opened trail, people commented on the new route. Some said they’d been watching the RCC’s construction and have been looking forward to its opening, while others said they enjoyed the new route through the downtown. “Seeing the crowds with their Redmond Lights blinkers on walking down the new Redmond Central Connector, was such a great sight,” Rhodes said. A short ceremony was held to celebrate the RCC opening, with the mayor giving a few short remarks and then “flipping the switch” to light the new path. Guy Michaelsen of The Berger Partnership, the Settle-based landscaping architecture consultants for the RCC, was also present for the opening of the trail. And having worked on the RCC since the beginning, Michaelsen was very excited to see part of the trail completed. Like Choe and Welch, this was Michaelsen’s first time attending Redmond Lights and he was very impressed. “This is such a fantastic community event,” he said. “You’ve got people coming out in 20-degree weather. You know you’ve got a good thing.”

The residents’ reactions were a response to King County ordinance 2013-0472 singling out Redmond Ridge by name in allowing a marijuana processing plant in the community. In addition, an applicant under the name Red Ridge Farms LLC applied for a permit to open a plant in the 10000 block of 231st Way Northeast on the Ridge. While the majority of feedback King County Council members received on the topic was against allowing a processing plant on the Ridge, Lambert’s office received input from at least one individual who was in favor.



King County Council unanimously adopted legislation on Monday modifying county building codes and development regulations for the siting of recreational marijuana businesses licensed by Washington State Liquor Control Board (LCB). In 2012, state voters adopted I-502, which legalized the purchase, possession and use of small amounts of marijuana by state residents 21 years and older. The initiative also established the means for regulating the production, processing, sales and taxing of marijuana. As outlined in I-502, the legislation prevents any of these operations from being established within 1,000 feet of a number of 883196

Council members debated the issue in depth and ultimately agreed with the citizens in their belief that the Redmond Ridge area needed to be removed from zoning for marijuana growing and processing. Additional research revealed that all but one parcel with the proposed area in Redmond Ridge was inside a 1,000-foot buffer and did not qualify

under the state regulations that are part of the voter-approved Initiative 502, which legalized recreational use of marijuana. “With the passing of the amended ordinance, our neighborhood feels the council was responsive to unincorporated area residents that they govern,” Boon said. Lambert added, “I truly believe that the residents of Redmond Ridge made a huge difference in the outcome of this legislation. What encourages me the most is that the result is a great civics lesson about the power of community involvement to change an outcome. This was grassroots at its best.” She said because most of the other King County Council members are not familiar with her district, having members of the community contact them, speak at public hearings and provide feedback helps support her because they back up what she tells her fellow council members regarding the area. “It means that I’m not alone on these topics,” she said about the community support. “I feel like in the future…I have an army now.” Boon said rallying together to keep marijuana processing plants out of their community was a big learning experience for Redmond Ridge, Redmond Ridge East and other nearby neighborhoods. “We are better prepared for involvement on future topics concerning our areas,” she said. “This issue has provided a great learning experience and has brought the community even closer together.”

Redmond-area marijuana business license applications rises to 11 The Washington State Department of Revenue announced it has received 11 completed applications from the Redmond area, submitted online, for marijuana business licenses since Nov. 18, the first day to apply for producer, processor and retailer marijuana business licenses. Applicants have through Dec. 19 to submit their applications, available through the state’s Business Licensing Service. The Redmond applications came from: Cleo (producer and processor) Diamond Medical (retailer) Eastside Wellness (producer and processor) Glens Plant Farm (producer and processor) Good News Everyone LLC (retailer) Grassroots Bake Shoppe (producer and processor) Pacific Northwest Producer (producer and processor) Pegasus Growers (producer) Mac1 (producer and processor) Maui Wowie LLS (retailer) The Werc Shop WA (processor) For addresses, visit Revenue manages the state’s Business Licensing Service and will accept the applications on behalf of the state Liquor Control Board. Licenses will be approved by the Liquor Control Board, which began processing the licenses on Nov. 20. In September, the Liquor Control Board approved the filing of proposed supplemental rules that, if ultimately enacted, will help govern Washington state’s system of producing, processing and retailing recreational marijuana. The board allocated a maximum of 334 retail outlets statewide, including two in Redmond and 61 in King County overall. Per Initiative 502, the board applied a method that allocates retail store locations using Office of Financial Management population with a cap on the number of retail stores per county.

Short-term versus long-term investments: what’s the difference?


At various times, many people may feel frustrated by the performance of their investments. For example, they expect growth, and they don’t get it — or they think the value of their investment won’t fluctuate much, but it does. However, some of this

frustration might be alleviated if investors were more familiar with the nature of their investment vehicles. Specifically, it’s important to keep in mind the difference between long-term and short-term investments. What defines long-term and short-term investments?

Long-term investments are those vehicles that you intend to hold for more than one year — in fact, you generally intend to hold them for several years. On the other hand, you usually hold short-term investments for one year or less. You can find several key dis-

you can eventually sell it for a profit. In addition, you may be looking for the investment to provide income. When you purchase a short-term vehicle, you are generally not expecting much in the way of a return or an increase in value. Typically, you purchase short-term investments for the relatively greater degree of principal protection they are designed to provide. They meet different needs at different times of life. You will have different investment needs at different times of your life. When you’re young, and just starting out in your career, you may require a mix of longand short-term investments. You might need the short-term ones to help pay for a down payment on a home, while the long-term ones could be used to help build resources for your retirement. But later in life, when you’re either closing in on retirement, or you’re already retired, you may have much less need for long-term vehicles, with a corresponding increase in your need for short-term investments. They can satisfy different goals. If you purchase investments that you intend to hold for the long term, you probably have a long-term goal in mind — such as building resources to help pay for a comfortable retirement or leaving a legacy. On the other hand, a shortterm investment would be more appropriate if you know that you will need a certain amount of money at a certain time — perhaps to purchase a car or to fund a vacation. They carry different risks. All investments carry some type of risk. One of the biggest risks associated with long-term investments is volatility, the fluctuations in the financial markets that can cause investments to lose value. On the other hand, short-term investment vehicles may be subject to purchasing power risk — the risk that your investment’s return will not keep up with inflation. As an investor, you’ll probably need a mix of long-term and short-term vehicles. By knowing the differences between these two categories, you should have a good idea of what to expect from your investments — and this knowledge can help you make those choices that are right for you.

REDMOND SPORTS Redmond’s Kirsch completes 27 passes JOSH SUMAN Reporter Newspapers

Eastside Catholic High knew to beat the five-time defending state champions from Bellevue High, the Crusaders would need a near-flawless effort. Instead, the Crusaders were left lamenting missed opportunities after the Wolverines forced four turnovers in a 52-20 win for the 3A state title last Friday night at the Tacoma Dome. “We needed to play better,” Eastside Catholic head coach Jeremy Thielbahr said. “That’s a great ballclub over there.” The Crusaders drove inside the Bellevue 20-yard line on the game’s first drive. But an interception in the end zone from senior Tim Haehl set the tone and led to a score from the Wolverines’ senior tight end Ross Conners six plays later for a 7-0 lead. Sophomore quarterback Harley Kirsch from Redmond pulled his team within seven in the second quarter with a 1-yard quarterback sneak to cap an eight-play drive that covered 57 yards. But three Bellevue

Eastside Catholic quarterback Harley Kirsch from Redmond finished with 266 yards and a score in his first state title game start last Friday at the Tacoma Dome. Courtesy of James Kirkish, The Shuttered Image touchdowns in the final four minutes of the half, bolstered by a fumble recovery deep in Crusaders’ territory, put things out of reach and ended Eastside Catholic’s hopes of the program’s first state title. “We’ve just got to compete at a higher level, more consistently,” Thielbahr said. Senior running back Henry Jarvis returned from injury and finished with four carries, but a stingy Bellevue defense held the Crusaders to just 24 yards on the ground for the game. Kirsch finished with 27

completions on his 37 attempts, with two interceptions and a touchdown pass to senior Colin MacIlvennie on the game’s final play. Thielbahr praised his team’s growth throughout the year, and Bellevue coach Butch Goncharoff said there was little doubt Eastside Catholic would again find itself in prime position to challenge for more titles in coming years, with a bevy of talented underclassmen led by Kirsch. But to achieve the final

goal and leave the Tacoma Dome with a 3A state title trophy, they know there is work to be done. “We’ve got to go back and get prepared for next season,” Thielbahr said. “I believe in this team. I believe in our kids.” The team also featured Redmond residents Jakob Jackson, Eric Medeiros, James Jolliffe and Juan Sacchi, and Woodinville residents Drew Springfield, Addison Hull and Jacob Friedburg.

VALA Eastside seeks artists in residence

VALA Eastside (Venues For Artists in the Local Area) is seeking two local artists to serve as 2014 artists in residence at its art center in Redmond. The VALA Artist in Residence (AIR) Program was started in 2013 as a way to give local artists the opportunity to develop and create an art project of their choosing and implement it in a way that creates a strong connection to the local community. “Connecting the community to art and artists is core to the mission of VALA and we are excited to be able to offer opportunities like this to our local artists,” says VALA

co-founder and executive director Jessica Lambert. Each artist will serve for a twomonth period in 2014, be given a stipend of $1,000 and use of the VALA Art Center to create their project and public art program. The VALA Art Center, located at 7303 164th St. N.E. in Redmond Town Center, is the hub for most of VALA’s art programs including public art installations, programs, events and workshops. The art center is made possible through partnership with Redmond Town Center and is operated by VALA Eastside, a 501c3 nonprofit organization serving the Eastside arts community. Resident artists will be selected through a two-part application process that will consist of a submission of application materials and, if selected, a formal written proposal and interview. Deadline to apply is at 5 p.m. on Jan. 17.

RHS Chess Team Takes First place

A team of three Redmond High School (RHS) freshmen — Daniel He, Samuel He and Tejas Bharadwaj — took first place in the recent 2013 Washington State Mini-Teams Chess Championship. The tournament was organized by the Washington High School Chess Association and was held at Interlake High School. Forty-eight teams from high schools and middle schools all over the state competed in the

tournament. The RHS team scored 12.5 points out of 15. The team from Skyline High School scored 11.5 points and took second place, and a team from Interlake High School scored 11 points and took third place.

RHS Musicians Selected to Top Groups

Eighteen Redmond High School students have been selected to participate in one of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) All-Northwest performing groups or one of the 2014 Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA) All-State performing groups. The students are part of a group of 42 Lake Washington School District (LWSD) students selected for these groups. The students were selected from more than 2,200 applicants for the high school groups. Both NAfME All-Northwest performing groups and WMEA AllState high school honor groups will meet in Yakima from Feb. 12-16, 2014. The high school musicians will rehearse and perform in concert under the direction of world-renowned conductors. These WMEA All-State musicians were selected through auditions to participate in this event, which is sponsored by the WMEA.

Sambamurti featured on world-music album

Redmond resident and singer Latha Sambamurti is being featured on recently released world-music album, composed by electronic musician Colin Mansfield of St. Paul, Minn. The collaborative project also includes Portland singer Holly Nelson. The album, “The Great Expedition” has five tracks, two of which fuse Sambamurti’s Indian melodies with modern electronica. “The Great Expedition” is meant to describe a journey that could have been taken by a young explorer just before the First World War. The soundscapes are meant to describe each phase of the imagined journey, from the preparations, to the journey itself and the eventual return. The first two tracks, “First Steps” and “New Worlds” show the movement toward, and completion of, a sea journey. “The Great Expedition of 1912” attempts to describe the bulk of the journey, with the juxtaposition of the Persian santur, the Arabic rak, as well as more European-styled horns and vocals. “Post Expedition” is a reflection on what happened to the traveller, particularly mentally and spiritually, with broadened horizons and a more understanding world view. For more information or to purchase “The Great Expedition,” visit album/the-great-expedition.
