Bothell man returns to his passion at age 93, the car industry BY SARAH KEHOE


othell resident Lloyd Ness was 15 years old when he discovered a love for cars. “I bought a (Ford) Model

T Convertible for $15 and driving it around was the best feeling in the world,” he said. “I got pulled over for speeding around Green Lake and my dad made me return the car.” That didn’t stop Ness.

“My dad thought I was taking the bus to school, but what I was really doing was buying cars for $10, fixing them up and driving them to school,” he said. “Then I would sell those cars for $15.”

Ness also participated in illegal street racing, which resulted in traffic tickets, a fine and 40 days without a license. “This proves I wasn’t afraid of the law,” he said, winking. “But, getting bust-

ed forced me to rethink my decisions and to get more serious about my future.” Ness had a number of odd jobs before securing a job as a sales manager for Brooks Biddle Automotive, where he stayed for 30 years

before retiring at age 78. This month, he returned to work for Biddle. “I just missed it,” he said. “John (Biddle) called me up and said he needed some help and I said ok.” [ more CAREER page 6 ]

Bothell boy’s Facebook page reunites owners with lost pets


hen 11-year-old Chance Hampton saw a “lost dog” sign posted in his local neighborhood in Bothell last April, he decided to do something about it. That’s how the “I Lost My Dog – Bothell” Facebook page was born. Chance said he wanted to do something for the people in his community to make it easier for them to “find their dogs, or help someone else’s dog find its way home.” Chance’s parents, Kelly and Jason, fully supported Chance’s idea. “I thought it was a great idea and I wanted to encourage him to do this. It’s good for him and good for the community,” Kelly said. Chance and his parents decided that a Facebook page would be the best way to get the word out to people since it’s more community-oriented. He said that the information on his page is gathered from a combination of people posting on the page and other sources, like the local animal

shelter. “We sometimes look on Craigslist and around the neighborhood, finding signs and stuff,” Chance said. “We take a picture and type up the information and post it on the site.” If someone posts their own information or picture about a lost or found dog on the Facebook page, Chance said that he reposts the information and/or picture so that more people will see it. To inform people about the Facebook page, Chance and his parents went around their neighborhood passing out fliers with directions explaining how to find and like the page. Some people even offered to help pass out fliers in their own neighborhoods. “I also got some business cards, and I go to shops and ask if I can put the cards in the shop,” Chance said. It’s a lot of work, but Chance said it’s pretty easy to handle running the Facebook page with the help of his parents. “I realized people were surprised that I was 11 and doing this,” he said. A dog, Spartan, was recently reunited with its family because of Chance’s page.

Of the applications received so far, 794 are for growing licenses, 579 are for processing licenses and 323 are for retailing licenses. The state isn’t capping the number of growers or processors, but says it will only allow 334 pot shops statewide. The application window opened Nov. 18 and will close on Dec. 20. According to Bothell city officials, no other applicants have filed thus far. The Liquor Control Board will accept public comment on the proposed licenses and comments should include the trade name, license number and address of the business (available at www.liq. and can be sent to Washington State Liquor Control Board, Licensing and Regulation, PO Box 43098, Olympia, WA 98504-3098.

The post about Spartan missing was seen by 12,568 people and shared 360 times. The page, to date, has 569 likes. People who have liked the page can see the posts and share them to spread the word to more people. Chance recalled a post about a lost chocolate lab named Maddy. “It got over 11,000 views, just on that one dog,” he said. Jason said that during the summer, Chance wanted to do a Humane Society camp. It was full, but when they found out about Chance’s Facebook page, they made an exception. Jason said this is a good lesson for Chance. “Sometimes, if you work really hard, you’ll get opportunities that you may not have gotten otherwise,” he said. “In other words, hard work pays off.” Chance hopes to continue running the Facebook page for as long as possible, and to continue increasing his audience with more likes. “At first, my goal was to get 500 likes, and now I’m at 569,” he said. “My new goal is to get 1,000.”

was overjoyed when the staff of the Bothell/ Kenmore Reporter contacted me with the idea of tracking my progress on Christmas Eve. Being in my position, it is difficult to let people know where I am going. It is extremely important because air traffic controllers are the only ones that can see my sleigh. Plus, Twitter is so impersonal. It is not a very well known fact, but I am not able to use the ‘spirit’ of Christmas to get down chimneys without kids being asleep first. It is imperative I get this information to families so that kids are asleep when I get to their house. Letting you, the children, know when I will arrive is very important. Most kids understand that they must be in bed and asleep in order for me to drop off the goodies and see their beautiful tree.

Foggy Noggin article distasteful

redevelopment, city is letting us down

I found your Dec. 6 article about the Foggy Noggin to be a little distasteful. The Foggy Noggin is a very small business that is run out of a garage in a nice residential neighborhood where at least half of the surrounding neighbors have expressed concern about their activities. Asking their customers to bring donated food items for Northwest Harvest is one thing, but to invite children to a beer tasting party to see Santa Claus is crossing the line. One of Foggy Noggin’s impaired customers nearly hit a disabled neighbor who was at their mail box, and then was heard laughing by a witness as they went by. The Foggy Noggin might as well hire Billy Bob Thornton who played in Bad Santa, because that’s about what it’s going to represent.

With a full-time job, family and house in Bothell to take care of, it’s a challenge to find time to keep up with local government. Thanks to the Reporter for making it easy to keep up with latest developments. There are two issues in the recent news that make me feel like the city council and staff are letting the residents down. The first, how can a new City Hall cost $42 million? Doesn’t this sound a bit expensive? Like, by a factor of 10. The second, how could we let the McMenamins twist the pool deal around. I agree with Tris Samberg that the people of Bothell were led to believe the pool would be restored to its original function. Time to step up Bothell and set the McMenamins straight.

Revising history with Saint Edward Seminary

I am responding to the article about the State Parks and the St. Edward seminary, which ran in the Kenmore Reporter on Dec. 6. The State Parks and Recreation Commission’s Virginia Painter is revising history with her statement that the McMenamins weren’t interested in pursuing the seminary. The fact that McMenamins is opening a destination facility in Northshore demonstrates their desire to be located here. There were numerous hearings regarding the seminary location but it was vigorously opposed by a few bicyclists and play field advocates who sunk the McMenamins’ project because “drunk visitors would run over children” and the city bought into that argument. The seminary had wonderful stories to tell and there was no better way to do that than through a McMenamins’ lodging venue...the ghosts, the many stories. Kenmore could have been a destination. Instead, we continue to sit on the sidelines.

“Doing an anti-bullying campaign is sort of negative,” said Olivia Sablan. “It tells students what not to do. We wanted to focus on the positive message of kindness where we told them ways they could express that.” One example the leadership students gave on how to show kindness, was to talk to someone new. “There are lots of students out there that are great people, but they are often alone because they are either shy or different,” Moore said. “We want to encourage each other to approach those people and to get to know their story.” Leadership students created an exercise for each class to do where a student anonymously wrote down one thing they are proud of and one thing they struggle with. Their responses get placed on a white board for people to read. Some wrote down they were struggling with grades, others confessed they were being abused by a parent or relative.

Canyon Park Junior High’s student leaders put together a kindess week where they encouraged their classmates to be kind to one another through various activities.

John Biddle, president of Brooks Biddle Automotive, said he and his coworkers decided Ness would be a great addition to their team. “Even after Lloyd retired he would stop by the shop to say ‘hi’ and it just brightened everyone’s day,” Biddle said. “On the weekends we get busy and don’t have enough sales people, so our manager brought up the possibility of bringing in Lloyd to help us out. He is so passionate about cars and so knowledgeable.” Ness has sold at least

“The historical scene gives a vision of nearby hills depicting a good end to a hard day’s work,” Linda Dorsey wrote in an email to the Reporter. “Featured is a team of four horses and loggers that pulled a large wagon loaded with logs out of the woods, to be left at the lumber mill. [It is] just another glimpse into our past, yet preserved on old Main Street, in the heart of downtown Bothell.” The Logsdon Building has a long and rich history of its own. Dexter’s Cafe was the original business in the building from 1911-1918. Harry Given and Hugh Stevenson opened a meat market. Given was the sole owner by 1922 and around 20 years later Vern Keener expanded the original Dexter’s Cafe building to

one car each day he’s worked. “People just love him,” Biddle said. “He’s always helping others. He’s just an inspirational character for our city.” During his career, Ness worked for at least three other new-car dealers in the Puget Sound area. He has a room in his home full of trophies for being the top selling salesman. “I think I am successful because I have never tried to oversell anyone or misrepresent a car,” Ness said. “I tell it like it is.” Ness recalls selling four convertibles in one day. “I remember I had sold

three and then was sitting around waiting for customers to show up when I spotted a soldier standing across the street,” he said. Ness motioned for the man to come over. “I says, ‘Hey soldier, get over here I got something for you,’” he said. “I showed him a new convertible we’d just gotten in and he was sold; he wanted to take it out of that parking lot right then and there.” Ness has noticed a big difference in customers that come to the dealership now than in previous years. “They come in with

computers on their phones and all this information about the car they think they want,” he said. “You have to be way more technical with customers now.” In addition to working at Biddle, Ness volunteers at the Northshore Senior Center, working at the coffee shop, sweeping outside and doing other tasks as needed. “I’ve seen him in action at 7 a.m. and I believe he is the most productive landscape worker they’ve got,” said his friend Ed Lincoln. “Even though he is in his 90’s, it is obvious he is not slowing down.”

It is easy to forget about Bothell’s 104 year history with all the construction projects in the downtown core. At the heart of that history is Main Street and its many family-run shops and businesses. A new mural on the façade of Bothell Main Street Antiques depicts the logging industry during the early days of the city and aims to take customers back in time amidst the bulldozers and cranes just a few blocks away. “Bothell has a strong and rich heritage,” said Linda Dorsey, who owns the business with her husband Tom. “The city of Bothell is under new construction and it is important to remember and appreciate the historical

downtown heart of Bothell, where it all began.” Lynn Logsdon, who owns the Logsdon Building where the antique store is located, gave permission for the mural to be put up. She is also a long time Bothell resident. “We talked with the building owner and she was very enthusiastic about it,” said Dorsey. “She thought it was a good idea for it to have to do with logging.” The 30-foot mural was created by the Dorsey’s son Ryan, who also grew up in Bothell and graduated from Bothell High School. “July through November it was spread out in our front yard,” said Linda Dorsey. “We have had an overwhelming response.” Ryan Dorsey painted the mural by hand.

Skyview students collect food for local families Skyview Junior High students conducted a food drive the week before Thanksgiving and more than 5,000 pounds of food were collected, serving 40 families. Each homeroom assembled a collection of food for a needy family in the community. The families received about 150 pounds of food each, including a turkey, pies, rolls and nonperishables. This was the seventh year of the Skyview Junior High Holiday Food Drive that seeks to make giving personal by helping families in their own community. The Eastlake Community Church is conducting a food drive in December and will be partnering with Skyview Junior High to distribute their Family Care Packages. Families are invited to pick up a Family Care Package on Dec. 17 at the school.

Gov. Inslee, community leaders hold Washington STEM Summit BY ANDY NYSTROM

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. Jay Inslee and 2013 National Teacher of the Year Jeff Charbonneau from Zillah High School were a handful of keynote speakers at Washington STEM’s second annual STEM Summit on Monday on Microsoft’s Redmond campus. More than 300 participants, which included educators, students, businesses and community

leaders, attended the summit. 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. The governor feels that one of “our greatest hidden challenges” is getting students to recognize why STEM is important in their lives. 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.” But there’s more work to be done, Inslee added, including lowering the state high school dropout rate and helping high school graduates financially to reach into the college realm to achieve their STEM dreams.

High school success Ifrah Mohamed Abshir, 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.”

The future

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. I can tell you, you can’t be a lawyer here without really learning a lot about science, technology, engineering and math, so it runs throughout the DNA of every part of this company,” he said. Added Abshir: “Knowing that the governor and someone like Brad Smith think the same way I do and understand that children truly are the future, it gives me the extra motivation — I’m not alone.” • Also at the summit, Washington STEM CEO Patrick D’Amelio 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 low-income backgrounds and communities of color. The STEM networks are also aligned with local economic development efforts.

Smith said that Microsoft

Northshore School District provides safety information for snowy weather Winter weather is expected this month and Northshore School District staff want parents and students to be prepared for road conditions. King County Road Service Division announced it will only plow or sand 10 percent of the county roads in a county-wide snow and ice event, which is a two-thirds reduction from a few years ago. Current county maps show there

will be plowing and sanding on the Woodinville/ Duvall Road starting at 171st Ave. NE to Duvall Avondale Road and the Juanita/Woodinville Road, west of I-405. This reduction in road support will impact the ability of school district buses and families to transport children to and from school on inclement weather days. A district spokesperson says the

district will consider these factors when making a decision to start schools late or close schools. For more information, families can access the 2010 Snow and Ice Bulletin. Parents can view bus-route information or contact the district Transportation Department at (425) 408-7900. Parents are encouraged to update their contact information with their

child’s school if they have changed their phone numbers so the district can notify them in the event of a school delay, closure or emergency. Families who do not want the interruption of an early morning or evening inclement weather call can opt out of receiving them by contacting the Communications Department at (425) 408-7670. They will still receive general

announcements and emergency phone calls. The decision to close schools or delay start times will be announced on most radio and television stations. Ways to Find Out Immediately if Northshore Schools will be Delayed or Closed: • Local radio and television stations • Public Schools Emer-

325 residential dwelling units can occur over two phases, although MainStreet currently plans on constructing approximately 220 units between the two phases. Around 25 percent of the units will be affordable at 85 percent of King County median income. At least five of the units will be affordable at 50 percent of King County median income. MainStreet anticipates being under construction with phase one in the spring/summer of 2014. Phase one development includes 138 dwelling units, four separate buildings ranging from three-to-five stories in height, consistent with allowable height in the downtown residential zone, 148 parking stalls, street frontage improvements on 68th Ave. N.E. and N.E. 182nd St. and first class resident club-houses, fitness and bicycle facilities. “In just five short months, the city and MainStreet went from a purchase and sale agreement to an approved site plan and development agreement,” said Kenmore City Manager Rob Karlinsey. “In my career, I have never seen a project of this magnitude move so quickly and efficiently.” At that same Dec. 9 meeting, the city council approved an amendment to the purchase and sale agreement for the property. The amendment adjusts the purchase price to account for several off-site improvements that MainStreet has agreed to construct, including full-width asphalt overlays, an upgraded pedestrian crossing on 68th Ave. NE, utility undergrounding on 68th Ave. NE and the construction of a new stairway on the adjacent south property. The amendment also allows for one remaining contingency item to be resolved by March 2014. During the first half of 2013, the city listed the Kenmore Village properties for sale and received 16 offers, including more than eight offers for the three acres of commercial property. The city evaluated the various offers and in

June of 2013, members entered into a purchase and sale agreement with the Benaroya Company and Real Property Investors (BCC-RPI) for the lower, commercial portion of the Kenmore Village property. The agreement included a 6-month due diligence period, during which BCC-RPI could evaluate the property and seek tenant interest in the property. “Although we did see tenant interest in the property, including medical office, we were not able to secure enough tenants during the due diligence period to justify purchasing the property,” said Mike McKernan of BCC-RPI. “We have enjoyed working with the city and wish them the best

as they continue in their efforts toward the city’s downtown goals and vision.” The due diligence period has recently expired, and neither BCC-RPI nor the city has elected to extend the agreement or move forward to closing. While the city continues to stay in communication with BCC-RPI, the city also now has the ability to reach out to other potential buyers, including those that made offers on the property earlier this year. “Our working relationship with BCC-RPI continues to be amicable, and our communication lines are open,” Karlinsey said. “We are appreciative of the work and due diligence that BCC-RPI has done on the property. Thanks to their work, we know even more about the property and its market potential.” Karlinsey and the real estate broker, Colliers International, Inc., will review its list of offers on the property received earlier this year and assess the interest level of one or more of those buyers. The city will provide a verbal update and make recommendations for next steps to the council at a public meeting in January or the first part of February 2014. “Given the strong buyer interest in the property that we saw earlier this year and the improvement of the overall economy, we remain very optimistic,” Baker said. “We continue to hold fast to our goals for the downtown, including creating a sense of place and a signature ‘town green’ in Kenmore Village that will create a special public gathering place.” The development agreement and other documents are available for review on the city’s website at For questions, contact Associate Planner Andrew Bauer at 425-398-8900 or abauer@

King County recognized for environmental services BY REPORTER STAFF

King County government has been selected as a founding member of the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) – a new national non-profit established to advance best practices, measurement and recognition for organizational purchasing programs. “Through this partnership with the

private sector, we can help preserve our environment while encouraging a diverse and sustainable economy,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. For nearly 25 years, King County government has worked to reduce the environmental impact of its purchases of goods and services. Throughout the years, the field has evolved from its initial focus on purchasing products with recycled content to addressing the diverse en-

vironmental, economic and social impacts of products across their entire lifecycles. “The SPLC will bring guidance to those organizations that are starting a sustainable purchasing program, and it will offer leadership to those that want to expand their existing sustainable purchasing efforts,” said Karen Hamilton, manager of the King County Environmental Purchasing Program. Hamilton recently participated in the SPLC’s founding summit. “As the complexity of environmental purchasing programs have increased, so too has the need for a national dialogue among all the players in the procurement arena,” said Wendy Keller, Procurement and Contract Services Manager for King County. “The SPLC will facilitate this multi-stakeholder process.” SPLC brings together leaders from government, industry, academia, standards organizations and non-government organizations to provide community, guidance, and leadership for sustainable purchasing professionals. The Council has also formed strategic partnerships to build on existing

By developing a system of guidance for best practices, measurement, and recognition that can be applied to a wide array of organizations, buyers can be much more strategic in their sustainable purchases of goods and services. SPLC is patterned after the successful U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Environmental Energy and Design (LEED) green building standards program. As a member of SPLC, King County will be able to influence the direction of the Council. In addition, King County is one of only four local jurisdictions in North America invited to be part of the SPLC Founders Circle, along with the cities of Portland, Ore., San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. The organization will elect its board of directors in January.
