New social media group brings Bothell community together BY SARAH KEHOE

Bothell resident Heather Heyer started a movement in her community to bring her neighbors together and help each other.

The Buy Nothing Project began as an experimental hyper-local gift economy on Bainbridge Island and in just two months, it has become a social movement, growing to more than 4,000

members in 16 groups from San Jose, Calif. to Seattle. The idea is for local groups to form gift economies that are complementary and parallel to local cash economies. Heyer uses a

Facebook group page to get her neighbors connected. People join because they’d like to quickly get rid of things that are cluttering their lives or simply to save money by getting things

for free. Heyer started the group in Bothell a few months ago and it has around 400 members. “Our Bothell group is one of the largest and most

active groups in the project and we are growing every day,” Heyer said. People can post on the group page if they have a need for something or post [ more NEIGHBORS page 3 ]

Top 10 most-read stories of 2013 BY SARAH KEHOE


tories about a Bothell man charged with murdering his estranged wife were the most-read headlines this year, as the murder, investigation and eventual arrest occurred throughout the year. Bothell/ Kenmore Reporter readers also paid close attention to a scandal involving Bothell Mayor Mark Lamb and chipped in to help a Bothell family whose mother battled a brain tumor. Here are the top 10 mostread stories in order, according to Google Analytics: 1. “Bothell residents ask Mayor Lamb to step down over affair”, Dec. 14, 2012. Several Bothell residents asked Mark Lamb to resign from his position as Bothell Mayor, claiming his admitted affair has drawn embar-

rassment to the city and distracted the council from important issues, during a council meeting. A former employee of the North Creek Law Firm, Micaela Mae, 23, sued the business, Lamb and his wife for wrongful termination and invasion of privacy over the two-year affair between the employee and mayor. Mae filed the civil suit in Snohomish County Superior Court on Oct. 29, 2012 seeking unspecified damages for lost wages, future wages and emotional distress. Lamb admitted to a sexual relationship with the woman in court filings on Nov. 8, but denied most other claims in her suit. City Manager Robert Stowe said the city would not take any measures to remove Lamb from his position or investigate the issue. “It’s not [ more 2013 page 3 ]

Parks to host meeting on potential lease of seminary building

Washington State Parks is beginning a planning process to evaluate a potential longterm lease of the seminary building located at Saint

Edward State Park in Kenmore on the boundary with Kirkland. The public is invited to a workshop Jan. 14 to give their input on the building’s future. The meeting is from

6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Northshore Utility District Meeting Room, located at 6830 NE 185th St. in Kenmore. “I just really hope that this meeting tells us all what we



surrounding this building over the years and so many rumors. Basically, the most important thing to me is that we keep the integrity of the park.” The Saint Edward Semi-

nary, situated within Saint Edward State Park, is a historic property listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The seminary is in poor condition and contin[ more SEMINARY page 9 ]

New gymnasium for kids opens in Bothell BY SARAH KEHOE


aden Villa, 2, giggled as he propped himself up on gymnastic rings with the help of his coach at Bothell Gymnastics Club. “I really like taking him here because the coaches are nice and it’s much healthier for him to be active here than sitting at home watch-

ing television,” said Jose Villa, Jaden’s dad. “He always has so much fun during gymnastics class; just look at that huge smile on his face. He always smiles when he’s here.” Keala Hopps and Amy Linhardt opened the club in October to teach gymnastics to children from preschool to high school.

“I fell in love with coaching and am passionate about gymnastics and teaching kids how to live an active, healthy lifestyle,” Hopps said. Hopps and Linhardt talked about opening their own club together for a long time before signing a lease for the facility in April. “We decided to do it in Bothell because we really

liked the friendly feel this community has,” Hopps said. “We felt this was a safe area as well, which we knew would be an important factor for our parents.” Linhardt and Hopps said this is the only gymnastics club in the Bothell area. The closest location for the other clubs is Everett. “Now Bothell residents can just hop on the freeway and come over,” Hopps said. Hopps grew up doing gymnastics in Kirkland and competed through level 6 as well as on her Eastlake High School varsity gymnastics team. She began her coaching career while attending Gonzaga University in Spokane. She started by coaching preschool and recreational gymnasts, and then started an in-house and Rec-Op Team program at the gym in Spokane. Hopps was called by the owner of a local Seattle gym and asked to come and manage the recreational program. Linhardt grew up in Oak Harbor and participated in gymnastics at Oak Harbor Gymnastics School for 10 years, retiring as an advanced optional gymnast at 17 years old. She started coaching classes at her gym at age 14. After high school,

she moved to Edmonds to attend college and worked as a site manager for a gym where she stayed for 22 years before deciding to return to her gymnastics roots. “Gymnastics is a great sport because there are so many elements to it and it requires a lot of discipline, which gives kids that ‘try, try again attitude,’” Hopps said. “This carries over to other areas of life and helps kids become successful people.” The club has 300 kids already. “I think families really appreciate our facility in these winter months when the weather is too cold for kids to play outside,” Hopps said. Bothell Gymnastics Club

offers morning and afternoon classes, a preschool playtime and hosts birthday parties. The owners said that although gymnastics is thought to be a sport for girls, they have many classes specifically for boys. “We truly have something for everyone here,” Hopps. said. Hopps hopes to continue to build the club. “We want to grow as we watch our students grow,” she said. “We hope to hire more staff and offer more classes in the future.”

Search warrants found there must have been a struggle between Susann Smith, 37, and her killer. Detectives believed she was attacked in her bed with a blunt force object and the struggle continued into the bathroom. An ax was found in the home but detectives determined that it was not used in the attack. Bloody footprints, both bare or with socks along with a sole, were found in the home. All the prints were determined to be the same size. Police took blood samples from the residence for DNA testing that investigators said would be instrumental in solving the case. They also served search warrants on Susann’s estranged husband Alan Smith’s apartment and vehicles. Alan was named as a person of interest in the crime and police searched his car and questioned him. The couples’ divorce battles were examined and other witnesses came forward to discuss Alan’s behavior during the past year. Bothell police Sgt. Cedric Collins confirmed that Susann died of “homicidal violence.” 3. “Bothell police warn naked man about sex in front yard of home where

“While [he] was in custody, a second search warrant was served on Alan Smith for inked images of [his] feet,” said Seuberlich. “Once the images were obtained, Alan Smith was transported to the Snohomish County Jail and booked on obstruction.” Search warrants the Reporter gathered in March showed that police obtained a blood stained footprint from the scene of the crime. 6. “Bothell murder victim died of head injuries, medical examiner confirms,” Feb. 15, 2013. On Feb. 15, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office identified a dead woman found in her Bothell home as Susann Smith. Smith, age 37, died of head injuries as the result of a homicide, the office confirmed on Friday. Bothell police found Smith during a welfare check at her home in the 200 block of 240th St. SW in Bothell on Tuesday morning. Smith’s employer, Z2Live, contacted the Bothell Police Department on Tuesday because they were concerned about Smith’s welfare, said Z2Live CEO Lou Fasulo in a statement on Wednesday. Bothell police Sgt. Cedric Collins said Smith died of “homicidal violence,” but did not have any further details about the investigation. 7. “Documents show Bothell homicide victim, husband in midst of heated divorce, custody battle,” Feb. 27, 2013. On Feb. 27, Police identified the woman found murdered in her Bothell home and named her estranged husband as a person of

interest. The Smiths were in the midst of a contentious divorce, according to hundreds of Snohomish County Court documents pertaining to their divorce and obtained by the Reporter. It was found that the couple, who was married for eight years and have two small children together, were separated on Nov. 18, 2011. They even considered living together when they originally decided to separate but that did not work out. Court documents state that “the marriage is irretrievably broken.” The couple’s two children, ages 3 and 6, spent the majority of the time with Susann and extended weekends with their father. Alan stated in court documents that they had “reached a fairly high level

of cooperation for eight months without any court orders” prior to hiring lawyers in August. The couple did have a restraining order keeping them apart when the divorce was initially filed. The most recent disputes at the time centered on Susann’s desire to move herself and the children to her native Germany to be with her family, according to the documents. 8. “Husband considered person of interest in Bothell woman’s homicide,” Feb. 22, 2013. The Bothell Police Department confirmed Feb. 22 that they consider the estranged husband of a Bothell woman who was found dead in her home as a person of interest and served a search warrant on the man’s residence.

At the time the article was written, Warwick had lost all right side function and required a wheelchair for her day-to-day living. She also lost all her peripheral vision on her right side. Family and friends set up a website asking the community for help as her family faced extreme financial hardship with medical expenses, home healthcare for Warwick and daycare costs for her children, as her husband works fulltime outside the home. The Bothell community stepped up and helped the Warwick family reach nearly $5,800 of their $20,000 goal when the article was published in August. 5. “Bothell police arrest Alan Smith for his wife’s murder,” June 27, 2013. Four-and-a-half months after a mother-of-two was found brutally murdered in her Bothell home, police arrested her estranged husband for the crime. Alan Justin Smith, 37, was arrested at 8:25 a.m. on June 27 and booked on investigation of murder in the first degree at the Snohomish County Jail. “There was no one particular thing that led to this,” said Bothell police Sgt. Ken Seuberlich, the day of the arrest. “There were a number of things that culminated and made detectives confident to make the arrest.” Seuberlich said that Smith was “cooperative” with detective at the time of the arrest and “not combative.” Smith was served a search warrant on June 20 for his passport. But he was arrested for obstruction when he refused to turn the passport over to authorities.

wife was murdered,” June 20, 2013. Last summer police were continuously called by neighbors of Alan Smith, a Bothell resident recently charged with murdering his estranged wife, for loud screams and other disturbances coming from Smith’s home. In June, a neighbor heard a scream emanate from the home while outside with her landscaper, according to the police report. The neighbor did not observe any other suspicious activity. Three Bothell police officers responded at 1:23 p.m. after a detective spoke with the reporting party. When officers arrived they walked down the driveway to the front gate. The front yard is enclosed by the gate and a large hedge. From the gate, officers could see Smith and a woman engaged in sexual acts in a corner of the yard. Police took photos of the couple engaged in the sexual acts for the report and then contacted the couple. Police told residents to call 9-1-1 if anything was out of sorts in the neighborhood. Smith was only a murder suspect at this time. 4. “Bothell family faces hardship as mother battles brain tumor,” Aug. 16, 2013. Krystal Warwick had been battling a brain tumor for two-and-a-half years when she was told by doctors she had less than a year to live. Warwick’s faith in God was tested as the thought of leaving behind her husband, her 2-year-old daughter, and her sons, ages 3 and 5, made her heartbroken. Yet it didn’t take long for Warwick let go of her negative thoughts and focus on the thought of heaven and enjoy the time she had with her family.

Groups see common ground for Seminary building We write to set the record straight on the position of Friends of Saint Edward State Park regarding a pending proposal for the Seminary building and to offer perspectives of two key community groups. At this point, the Friends group has not taken a stand opposing a potential tenant for the Seminary Building. In fact, the charter of the Friends of Saint Edward State Park requires that the group act in support of efforts by the State Parks Commission. Members of the Families for Active Parks in Kenmore and the Friends group have met and see potential for common ground between our organizations – and the community at large - as follows: • The Saint Edwards Seminary building is a panoramic, historic building that is rapidly decaying and needs a significant infusion of funding to be preserved; • It would be a tragedy for our community and region to lose this facility, and yet we must be creative to save it as State Parks is financially strapped and will not see any significant state funding for the foreseeable future; • There are ways to fulfill key objectives of the “CAMP” document done for Saint Ed’s in October 2008 in a way that combines restoration of the seminary building, preservation of historic spaces, and enhancement of recreational facilities; • We’re encouraged that an individual who could more cost-effectively site his cyber-security office space anywhere in Kenmore is considering up to $40 million in seminary building renovations and significant upgrades to surrounding grounds and recreational facilities, out of love for the State Park; • We see value in State Parks approving an initial short-term occupancy agreement so a more thoughtful long-term process can proceed.   Still, we believe much more information is necessary to vet this proposal for the long-term. We stand ready to speak to the importance of this proposal, in a productive way, at the Jan. 14 public meeting and thereafter.

I want to respond to the letter “Revising history with Saint Edward Seminary” in the Dec. 20 issue. I served on the citizen advisory committee during the park CAMP process, and am a past president of the Friends of Saint Edward State Park. With all due respect, the historical revisions are flying thick and fast. McMenamins is a great company with a great business model. It’s easy to see why many thought the seminary building would be a good candidate for one of their destination facilities. But the proposal fell of its own weight for two reasons; first, the huge cost of the needed repairs to the building, and second, its location at the end of a long, two-lane cul-de-sac, which most members of the community want to keep the current condition. The proposal didn’t fail because of opposition from “a few bicyclists and play field advocates.” And regarding the opposition, it consisted of a vast majority of the surrounding community. I look forward to hearing more about the new proposal for re-use of the seminary building at the Jan. 14 public meeting, and hope a use can be found that results in rehabilitation of the building as long as the rest of the park is protected for future generations to enjoy as it is now.

Tom Fitzpatrick, Kenmore

Revising history on McMenamins in Kenmore Recently the Kenmore Reporter ran a letter from

Susan Gardner, “Revising history with Saint Edward Seminary.” The letter states that “a few bicyclists and play field advocates” sunk the McMenamins’ project. This statement could also be classified as revising history. As one of a few community members who led the effort to promote the need for ball fields in Kenmore, and as a member of the Saint Edward State Park Advisory Committee that was assembled to produce the Classification and Management Plan (CAMP) for the state park, it is false to assert that the ball field leaders opposed or worked against the McMenamins’ proposal. We have always recognized that ball fields and recreational amenities often require a collaborative effort between public, private and community partnerships. There are many reasons that the McMenamins’ proposal did not succeed, but to put the blame on bicyclists and ball field advocates would be a complete mischaracterization of the process and a misunderstanding of who the opponents of this proposal were.

Brent Smith, Kenmore City Council

Everyone should enjoy their own creativity The Dec. 20 article may continue to mislead parents and students about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math in education). The most important word is missing - creativity. It should be clearly recognized that the STEM focus is on tools. However, tools themselves are of little value without a starting the idea and that comes from creativity. This is what future education should be emphasizing. Wonderfully, every person already has this capability and it only has to be released and encouraged. That is what every youngster and the parents should realize. Students can be creative and innovate their own ideas successfully in life without being good at math, chemistry or physics. This is underscored by the motto of UW Bothell seen on local billboards “Inspiring through Creativity & Innovation” not “Inspiring through STEM.”

Graham Allan, Kenmore

Revising history with Saint Edward State Park I would like to chime in on the subject of the prior letters by Susan Gardner and Tom Fitzpatrick. McMenamin’s could have been an ideal tenant and concept by my recollection, were it not for the following serious issues which needed solutions and funding mechanisms that have yet to material-

ize. Whatever new plan emerges, these challenges could/would still remain and need addressing. I think McMenamins was interested, listened and decided the hurdles and associated timelines were too great. There were more citizens expressing concerns on a variety of fronts than “a few bicyclists and play field advocates.” First, traffic volume impacts on Juanita Drive, and the Sammamish River bridge could/would need significant capacity relief related to any major occupancy growth. The recent traffic light addition on Juanita at the Park/Bastyr entrance/exit road has been very helpful. Bastyr, as I understand it, has taken steps to try to stagger their traffic flow, and have added BU bus transport for students to get to their Seattle facility. Second, the volume of parking required ... any significant paving would overtake much of the lawn that is aesthetic and enjoyable to the park, and structured (vertical parking) is expensive, and ought to be aesthetically consistent with the seminary. And finally, the issue of alcohol in the park seemed to hit a nerve with some of the objectors as well ... I would however have deferred to examining McMenamin’s record for managing their facilities (et al) as a sample of what the public might have expected. I don’t have knowledge of what that record might be, good or bad or in between, but they’ve been very successful with their business model. I look forward to learning more at the public meeting in January at the NUD meeting room.

William “Bill” Leak, Kenmore

Future of Saint Edward Park at stake Saint Edward State Park is a jewel in the crown of public lands on the shore of Lake Washington and offers a unique opportunity for visitors from around the Puget Sound region to experience the natural environment. The property was purchased by Washington State taxpayers under the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund in 1977 and is to be retained in perpetuity for outdoor recreation. Now there is a proposal by State Parks, as reported in your paper on Nov. 27, to convert the park’s seminary building and surrounding grounds into a private office park complex. This proposal is a hastily devised plan which will compromise the intended recreational uses of the publicly purchased state park and impose long term limitations on future park users.

It is imperative young people using technology distinguish between real and virtual worlds, and are able to emotionally respond congruently and appropriately in each of these domains. It’s also vital that Internet communication be complementary to social relationships, not replacing their presence or used to avoid human interaction. As teens and their families navigate the use of technology in their home, I have noticed these websites have become a source of concern

and tension among families — as teens desire freedom in these regards and as parents seek to implement limitations inspired by care and protection. Parents, as you and your children have conversation about their use of the Internet, I encourage you to explore for information as you seek to increase safe Internet decisions.

ever before have we had the abundance of technology available to our culture as we do today. Websites and blogs have become an everyday part of our life. FaceBook, Tumblr, Instagram and Snapchat are now household names. A social phenomena and an integral means of connecting, their use can be a fun way of being with friends. At other times, its use can

friend or family member. When communicating with online acquaintances and friends becomes more important than the real people in your world, it’s time to re-evaluate Internet access. Never publicly post personal or private information if you don’t want the entire world to see it. In addition to personal websites and Internet blogs, the use of cell phones and text messaging has also become a consistent means of communicating among young and old alike. When used to enhance relationships and convey important information, it can be an invaluable tool. When its use begins to take over one’s life or its use begins to take the place of genuine human conversation, the impact can be destructive to relationships and to the social development of our youth. This is a vital developmental time for our young people as they navigate relationships — it’s crucial that technology not infringe the ability to practice social skills of personal relationship. For those texting: Keep it simple. If you’re texting paragraphs, pick up the phone instead. Discuss emotions or decisions about relationships by phone or in person. Avoid text conversations about difficult topics where misunderstandings often take place. Avoid gossip. Messages can be forwarded and consequences are messy.

It’s Blue Friday! Support Our Hawks! Sherman: one of the best at talking and defending


Seahawks Richard Sherman is one of the best cornerbacks in the National Football League and one of the biggest talkers. Sherman finished the season with the most interceptions of any defensive back in the NFL. JENNIFER BUCHANAN, Everett Herald “I don’t want to be an island. I want to be more of a tourist attraction. You stop here, I take your

money and you go.” — Nov. 14. 2013. Sherman when asked if he takes it as a sign of respect that

of the NFL’s best cornerbacks. “I wanted to make a statement to my city. I’m from Compton (Calif.), and it’s hard for people to understand that you can be an athlete and have high academic standards and achieve high academic things. So, I really wanted to make that known to people that you can go to Stanford from Compton.” — April 30, 2011. Sherman

epending on your perspective, Richard Sherman is either best known as one of the NFL’s top cornerbacks, or as one of the NFL’s biggest talkers. In reality, he is both. Sherman’s standout play is why he’s in the spotlight in the first place, but his brashness/confidence/ cockiness/whatever you want to call it is also a big part of who he is. On the field, Sherman uses his trash talk to get into an opponent’s head — we’re looking at you, Steve Smith — and off the field he uses it to build his brand. Here we offer a small sampling of Sherman’s greatest hits, so to speak: “U Mad Bro?” — Oct. 14, 2012. Sherman, via Twitter, with his nowsignature line pasted over a picture of New England quarterback Tom Brady following a Seahawks win over the Patriots. “Sometimes, man, when the bully gets bullied, that’s how it happens.” — Oct. 24, 2012. Sherman responding to 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh’s complaints about the physical play of Seattle’s defensive backs. “In my 24 years of life, I’m better at life than you.” — March 7, 2013. The money shot from a sometimes hilarious, sometimes awkward takedown of ESPN’s resident instigator, Skip Bayless, during an appearance on “First Take.” “It helps when you don’t listen to the idiots in the draft room. When you don’t listen to the idiots, you find players like Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell and myself and Kam Chancellor, the list goes on, Russell Wilson. But if you sit there and listen to the idiots like Mel Kiper and Todd McShay and things like that, you miss a lot of good players.” — Dec. 19, 2013. Sherman explaining why the Seahawks have been able to find so many steals in the draft.

teams are throwing away from him, which is how cornerback Darrelle Revis earned the nickname “Revis Island.” “I’ve been proud of you since you spurned us. I told you, I didn’t want you to go down that path, I’m proud of you, boy.” — Jan. 6, 2013. Sherman, who was mic’d up, to Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III following a playoff win, a reference to the fact that Sherman encouraged Griffin not to come to Stanford, in part because Andrew Luck was also heading there, but also, perhaps, because he didn’t want Griffin to be subjected to playing for Jim Harbaugh. “A.J. Green is just a lot of noise talking and bad routes.” — Oct. 30, 2011. Sherman to Sports Radio KJR’s Curtis Crabtree following his first NFL start, a game in which he suffered a concussion early and kept playing, according to an article he wrote this season for TheMMQB. com. “I’m still a fifth-round pick last I checked. That will never go away.” — Dec. 27, 2012. Sherman describing why he’ll always play with a chip on his shoulder, even after gaining recognition as one

on the day he was drafted, explaining why he went to Stanford despite also having an offer from USC. “He’s an incredibly perspicacious guy.” — Oct. 3, 2013. Sherman, describing former Stanford teammate and current Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who a day earlier had described Sherman as vociferous. In the game of vocabulary one-upmanship, Sherman’s description of Luck means, “having or showing an ability to notice and understand things that are difficult or not obvious.”

Local landmark Kenmore Camera moves to new facility BY SARAH KEHOE


doors to the community,” Bob said. The new facility is a far cry from the business’s humble beginnings. “I don’t think my dad ever envisioned that Kenmore Camera would become what it is today,” Bob said. “He was just focused on what has always been our mission - to deliver great items to our customers and provide excellent service.” The family-owned business is a premier provider of photographic equipment and services. The business is renowned for its extensive training for beginners and professionals, as it has multiple classes offered. “We were all stepping on each other in the old store, it was just too close of quarters,” Bob said. “We had to host our classes at a business across the street and our events at a place in Lynwood.” Now, many of its events will take place in this expanded facility in downtown Kenmore. The move will provide more than triple the square footage of the current store, which is just across Northeast 181st Street from

the future location. “This has been more than 20 years in the making,” Bob said. “This move will allow us to offer more extensive classes and better serve our customers.” The Kenmore City Council approved a purchase-and-sale agreement on June 11 with Kenmore Camera owners Jim and Martha Donovan for a portion of the Kenmore Village property that has been owned by the city since 2003. The city is selling a 54,000-square-foot piece of property, which includes Kenmore Camera’s new facility, formerly occupied by Grocery Outlet. The purchase price was $1,250,000. Through a boundary line adjustment, the city will retain 15,000 square feet of frontage on Northeast 181st Street from the original parcel. Council members see this agreement as an important step in downtown redevelopment and supporting the expansion of a strong local business. “We welcome this investment because it will benefit downtown redevelopment goals, which have been the

ob Donovan remembers developing photographs with dad, Jim, in a darkroom when he was a child. “I love photography,” Bob said, smiling. “It’s always been a part of my life.” Jim started Kenmore Camera in 1974 for photography enthusiasts in a small 528-square-foot store in downtown Kenmore. Today Jim’s children, Bob, Scott and Mary, have carried on his legacy by adding more features to the store and continuing to attract a wide variety of customers. The company has outgrown its current location and will move to a 17,000-square-foot building in Kenmore Village filled with two classrooms, an equipment room, shipping and handling rooms and a sales floor. The new Kenmore Camera facility will open for customers during the first week of January, with a Grand Opening event happening sometime in February. “We can’t waitReporter, to open Kenmore our Bothell/Kenmore Grand Opening Page Ad 9.833”wide X 6.5” high

focus of community interest and discussion over many years — and it ensures the long-term presence of an important Kenmore business,” said Mayor David Baker. The city was engaged in a Disposition and Development Agreement with Urban Partners (later known as RECP/UP Kenmore, LP) for redevelopment of the 9.6-acre Kenmore Village property from 2007 to March 2012, when the parties mutually agreed to end the agreement. The Kenmore Camera agreement stipulates cooperation and coordination with future redevelopment to achieve a smooth function and fit between the properties. “The city has been so great to work with,” Bob said. “They believed in our vision for the store and have been extremely supportive. We are really grateful that we were able to stay in Kenmore with our new facility, because we love this community; it is our home. “ Bob believes it is the personal touch his staff provides and the quality of the cameras they sell that has made Kenmore Camera thrive

in the midst of a struggling economy and new technology, such as iPhone cameras. “There’s a place for iPhone cameras and cameras similar to that,” Bob said. “And I believe that place is limited for photographers because those cameras don’t allow you to control light and those lenses are very small; it is more for casual use, like uploading to the internet. When people come to us, they want more than that.” Bob pointed out most customers coming to the shop want to use their cameras to take pictures of a specific hobby. “We get everyone from the mom that wants to take

a picture of her kids playing sports to the hiker wanting to capture moments on the trails,” Bob said. “And we talk to them about what they want to use the camera for and find the perfect fit for them.” Kenmore Camera works closely with vendors and gets new products before most stores. “Vendors trust us because we offer training, so the customers will know how to use the cameras they get, which is very important to the manufacturers,” he said. “So with our training and relationship with the manufacturers, I feel we don’t compete with the big guys, they compete with us.”

and evaluate a long-term lease proposal. This includes preparing building and site rehabilitation plans and conducting an environmental review process with appropriate public participation, prior to commission consideration of a lease proposal. State Parks will decide the specifics of the process for this second step in the coming months. “We believe we have an obligation as the steward of this significant historic building to explore this lease proposal,” said Don Hoch, director. “It is unlikely that State Parks will receive sufficient capital funds to take care of the building, and the broker-

age firm has expressed that its client has the means and willingness to make a significant investment.” Hoch emphasized that all necessary and appropriate planning, permitting, environmental review and public involvement would need to be completed before the Commission could consider a long-term agreement. “If we want to keep the proposal alive for further evaluation, we need to allow the client to occupy some part of the building relatively quickly,” Hoch said. “So we want to do what we can to make that happen so we can explore the longer term potential.”

A woman walking alone on the North Creek Regional Trail on Dec. 13 was assaulted, according to the Bothell Police Department. The attack occurred at 1:30 p.m. in the 19000 block of the North Creek Regional Trail that runs between North Creek Parkway South and 120th Ave. NE, in the city of Bothell. As she was walking, she was approached from behind by an unknown subject,

grabbed and pulled to the ground. The female was able to escape by fighting back and immediately reported the assault to the Bothell Police Department, according to police records. The suspect was described as being approximately 5-foot-8, medium build, wearing a black puffy jacket with a hood pulled over the face and denim jeans. The Police Department is actively investigating this assault and anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Bothell Police Department Tip Line at (425) 487-5551.

The intent of the right-of-entry would be to avoid or minimize any changes in public use of the park during the term of the temporary agreement.

In January 2007, following an extensive public process, State Parks adopted a park management plan including land classifications and a long-term park boundary to provide direction for future preservation and development of the park. These agency actions will serve as a starting point for the current evaluation process. Last week, State Parks staff organized a meeting with Kidder Mathews and several participants in last summer’s exploratory discussion. As a result, State Parks staff determined the agency should move forward to explore the proposal. While continuing to gather public comment, State Parks intends to pursue a short-term agreement and a longterm lease exploration. Short-term, they plan to prepare a temporary right-of-entry agreement authorizing the client’s representatives access to the seminary building to make improvements necessary for the client to establish occupancy quickly.

Strange end-of-year statistics for real estate highlighted by Bothell and Kenmore disparity By Sarah Kehoe

Bothell home prices are up 20 percent while Kenmore home prices were down by 8 percent in November, according to a report done by real estate company Redfin’s Real-Time Home Price Tracker. The numbers highlight an anomalous end to a slow year for real estate, impacted by

slower lending, according to Kenmore real estate agent Jirius Isaac. The report studies local home prices, sales volume and inventory. The numbers only reflect transactions on the Multiple Listing Service, a local or regional database of available real estate for sale by member brokers. The November report showed the median home

price for Bothell was $308,722. Sales were up by 2 percent, with 124 homes sold. Homes sold 57 percent faster, spending an average of 10 days on the market. The median home price reported for Kenmore homes was $386,000. Sales remained flat with 19 homes sold, but homes sold 18 percent faster, spending an average of 19

days on the market. Isaac said the Redfin statistics are not a very accurate representation and don’t reflect what he has seen in the market this year. “Frankly, there haven’t been enough sales this year to make too much of a distinction,” he said. “November and December are always strange months in our market.”

Isaac noted Bothell homes are typically underpriced and sales tend to be higher in that area than in Kenmore, which might be the reason for the increase in Bothell home sales and the stagnation in Kenmore home sales. “More than anything, though, the biggest influence on the housing process is loans,” Isaac

said. “It is really hard for people to get loans these days, there are so many guidelines, the banks are making it almost impossible.” Isaac said the best measure of home sales come in the warmer weather, after the holiday season. “We should be able to get more accurate year to year changes in the spring of 2014,” he said.

A Bothell physician’s license has been immediately suspended on charges of smoking meth. The Medical Quality Assurance Commission alleges that methamphetamine, glass pipes and marijuana were seen at Timothy James Smith’s house over the sum-

mer. Smith was also seen smoking meth in August, according to the statement of charges. Smith can’t practice as a physician in Washington until the charges are resolved. He has 20 days to respond to the charges and request a hearing. Legal documents in this case are available by calling 360-236-4700 or online by selecting the link to “Provider Credential Search” on the agency home page.

The deputy returned to his vehicle and pursued the suspect to the Canyon Park QFC, where he used a PIT maneuver to attempt to end the pursuit. The woman rammed the deputy’s patrol car with her own vehicle and then continued to struggle with the deputy after being taken into custody. The deputy deployed his pepper spray and Taser to subdue her. The deputy was not injured and the woman was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated and cleared for booking.
