COMMUNITY | Redmond man retires, bikes cross country [3] CRIME ALERT | Redmond Police Blotter [5]



Hawks’ 12th (business) Man ANDY NYSTROM

If you’re hanging around CenturyLink Field tonight, you might spot Bob Morgan Jr., president of Redmond’s Washington Graphics. He plans on visiting downtown Seattle’s Pioneer Square to hand out company-made Seahawks 12th Man banners and posters to fans who will be getting into the playoff spirit early. Come kickoff time at 1:35 p.m. tomorrow — when the Seahawks (13-3) will take on the New Orleans Saints (12-5) — Morgan Jr. hopes to have some of those 3-by-4-foot banners hanging from some of the railings inside the stadium. In Redmond, a much bigger, 8-by-10-foot banner hangs on the outside of the Washington Graphics building on 151st Avenue Northeast. The Redmond company clearly has Seahawks fever. “Our motto is dream big, print big,” said Morgan Jr., adding that his company has come together with its Seahawks support just like the football players have gelled on the field. “Russell Wilson as a quarterback — as a human being — is infectious. Pete Carroll is a great coach. They’re such a

City prepares for construction on new Redmond Bike Park SAMANTHA PAK

Bob Morgan Jr., president of Washington Graphics in Redmond, stands in front of the 8-by-10-foot Seattle Seahawks 12th Man sign, which his company made and hung on the front of its building. ANDY NYSTROM, Redmond Reporter great story now.” While Seahawks fans have embraced the Blue Friday tradition, Morgan Jr. said that Washington Graphics has taken it a step further with its

mammoth banner and employees wearing Seahawks garb all week long. “Blue Friday needs to step down, because now it’s Blue 247,” he said. “Ride that wave.”

After a two-year-long appeal process, the wheels are back in motion to begin construction on the Redmond Bike Park south of Hartman Park on Education Hill. Earlier this week, the City of Redmond posted a public notice sign at the site to notify the community about the revised permit and plans. Residents in the surrounding neighborhoods also received written notice about the Bike Park plans in the mail. Carolyn Hope, park planning and cultural services manager for the City of Redmond and project manager for the Bike Park, said once the letters were sent out, it triggered a 21-day commenting period for people to provide feedback. “If we don’t get any appeals … then we would move forward with the plans,” Hope said, adding that they would like to begin construction in May. Permits for the Bike Park were first submitted in April 2011. Neighbors, citing concerns about noise, privacy and the park’s potential impact on the wetlands on the site, appealed the project in May 2011. According to the city website, the appeal was heard in the fall of 2011 and the hearing

examiner’s decision was made in favor of the city. In winter 2012, the neighbors appealed the decision to Redmond City Council, who also ruled in favor of the city. They also appealed the project to King County Superior Court, but before the case was heard, the two parties began settlement discussions. A settlement agreement was finalized in spring 2013 and City Council approved it on April 16, 2013. Hope said per the new agreement, the features of the bike park have been moved away from the southeast corner of the property and the wooden ladder bridges that were part of the original plan have been removed due to the neighbors’ concerns about noise. In addition, the new plan features expanded vegetation in areas closest to resident homes. According to earlier reports, plans for the Bike Park began in 2009 when Redmond Mayor John Marchione instructed staff to look into legitimizing the dirt jumps — which residents have been constructing (only to have the city bulldoze them down when they got too high or dangerous) for about 20 years — in the wooded area near Hartman Park into a city park. The Bike Park was the solution city staff and the community [ more PARK page 8 ]

Brain cancer organization helps patients and families with treatment and more SAMANTHA PAK

Doctors first diagnosed Chris Elliot with a brain tumor after he had a seizure in 2000. Healthy and active until then, the 39-year-old and his family quickly learned that he had brain cancer. Elliot

fought a 22-month battle before he died on June 13, 2002. Toward the end of that battle, he and his wife Dellann Elliot Mydland reflected on their experience. Two things they realized was how difficult it was to maintain a sense of normalcy — taking care of day-to-day tasks and raising their two children — while

fighting the disease and how disappointed they were that they had not been referred to a brain tumor specialist during Elliot’s treatment. Elliot asked Mydland to “do something” about the disease, so three weeks before he died, they co-founded the Chris Elliot Fund (CEF), a nonprofit organization

guided by its mission to end brain cancer by expanding access to specialists, advanced treatments and comprehensive support programs. CEF operated out of Mydland’s Sammamish home for 10 years, where she still lives, but the organization recently opened a patient support [ more CEF page 9 ]

Redmond man celebrates retirement with cross-country ride to Miami and had a stove to cook his meals. He said some places he would stop at did not have any motels or other places to stay, but that did not bother him because he enjoyed meeting fellow campers, being outside and seeing the stars. “My fondest memories are the camping,” he said. “I think you miss out if you don’t camp.” During these camping stops, Holroyd would also call his wife to check in with her. If the campsites had wi-fi, they would use Face Time on their iPhones so Holroyd could speak to his wife face to face and show her what he was

He said when he met and chatted with locals, some of them would bring him food. In addition, he met a few other bicyclists along the way, though most of them were riding in the opposite direction. He also met five individuals who were walking across the country. “People were impressed that I was biking across the country,” George said. “These guys were walking it.”

For George Holroyd, biking used to be something he did when he was injured and had to take a break from running. But as the Redmond resident has gotten older, he has biked more and more. And after Holroyd retired in February 2013 at 65 from a career as a project engineer at Phillips Ultrasound in Bothell, he planned and went on a cross-country bike ride from Redmond to Miami. “Biking cross country is pretty common now,” he said. “It’d been in the back of my mind for some time.” Holroyd, who grew up in Miami and is now 66, began his ride on Aug. 19, 2013. It took him 82 days and he arrived at his final destination on Dec. 10, 2013. He said he’d hoped to make the 4,656-mile ride in 60 days, but the time it took him was more realistic. Sticking mostly to highways and back roads, Holroyd averaged about 60 miles per day. He rode through 15 states including Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Mississippi, Georgia and Florida. Most of the places along the route, Holroyd had never been to. He said one of his favorite states to ride through was Wyoming. “I loved all of Wyoming,” he said. “Wyoming’s just a beautiful state.” Other highlights from Holroyd’s ride included the cornfields in Nebraska, the Missouri and Mississippi rivers and the beaches in Florida. Holroyd said he had planned to ride through Colorado, but the floods at the beginning of September forced him to rearrange his route. “I would’ve loved to go through Colorado,” he said, adding that he would have enjoyed seeing the Rocky Mountains. With all of the riding he would be doing, Holroyd, who had done various local rides including the 200-mile Seattle to Portland ride, had concerns about the physical aspect of the trip. This, however, turned out to be the easy part. His bike weighed about 100 pounds and so he was only able to ride 10-12 mph. His speed was closer to about four mph whenever he rode uphill. One of the difficulties Holroyd faced throughout the ride was staying hydrated in 80-degree weather. He said having enough food to stay fueled for the rides was also a challenge. “You’re always hungry because you’re burning a lot of calories,” he said. Holroyd lost about 15 pounds on his ride, but he has since gained it back. Whenever he stopped for the night, Holroyd would usually stop at a campsite

seeing. Angela Holroyd was very supportive of her husband’s ride. As a nurse, she said she has met and treated people who are not able to fulfill their dreams due to health issues. However, Angela, was concerned about George’s safety as he was riding cross country by himself. To help with this, they used the Life360 phone app to track where each other was. “That helped tremendously,” said Angela. “I was really happy when he got to Florida.” She also met her husband in Florida when he completed his ride.

Getting the people’s business done on time

After every experience, good or bad, there are lessons to be learned. I am proud of Washington’s new two-year budget that added $1 billion to K-12 education did not raise tuition at our state’s colleges and required no new general taxes. However, it was adopted more than two months late and just two days before the previous budget expired, which had some worried about a government shutdown. Taxpayers, state employees and those who rely on government services have a right to expect better — that Olympia would learn from 2013 and embrace opportunities to improve the process. When the Legislature convenes Monday for its 2014 session, I will be offering three proposals that would increase the likelihood of adopting the next state budget on time and begin to restore the public’s trust in state government. The first would make a structural change. By law, the revenue forecast that informs budget writers about available resources is not unveiled until two-thirds of the way through the session. It typically takes another two weeks before the Senate and House of Representatives release and pass their respective budgets. That leaves little time for negotiating and building consensus, and encourages lawmakers to consider overtime. A common-sense solution is to get the revenue forecast a month sooner in the odd-numbered years during which budgets are written. The state’s chief economist, who produces the quarterly forecasts, has said he does not believe a one-month change would alter the forecast’s accuracy. This would let budget writers release their proposals one month earlier, allowing more negotiating time. Sen. Andy Hill


Question of the week:




[4] January 10, 2014

I introduced this legislation last year. It passed the Senate unanimously but did not receive even a public hearing in the House of Representatives. My second proposed solution involves the state campaign-finance law that prohibits legislators and statewide elected officials from fundraising leading into and during a legislative session. This past year highlighted a weakness in the law. Following the regular 2013 session, which ended without the adoption of a new budget, the governor ordered a special session to commence two weeks later. During the break legislators and the governor were free to solicit and receive campaign contributions, despite not having completed our most important task. This loophole violates the spirit of the laws meant to keep fundraising and lawmaking separate, and eliminate appearances of impropriety and allegations of unethical behavior or favors. How does it look when lawmakers can solicit campaign funds while still deliberating a multi-billion dollar state spending plan? There is a time for lawmaking and a time for campaigning. My proposal is to extend the fundraising freeze in odd-numbered years so that no lawmaker may accept cam-

paign contributions until a new operating budget has been adopted. The governor also should not be able to fundraise during the 20 days following a session, which is when he or she is still part of the lawmaking process, deciding whether or not to sign legislation. The third proposal is a constitutional amendment that would not allow any pay increase for lawmakers to take effect if the Legislature does not pass an operating budget during the regular session. I specify “take effect” because the Legislature does not set its own pay; that job is done by the Citizens’ Salary Commission for Elected Officials. Washington workers aren’t rewarded for failing to complete their work; it should be no different for elected officials. In the past five years the Legislature has wrapped up its work on schedule just once, and that was five years ago. The three proposals I will put before my colleagues this year would go a long way toward reversing that trend, and ensuring the people’s business gets completed on time.

Sen. Andy Hill represents Redmond, Duvall, Kirkland, Sammamish and Woodinville in the Washington State Senate where he serves as the chief budget writer.

Truancy issue more complicated than prosecutor’s view We can only hope that King County Prosecutor Daniel Satterberg was being disingenuous in his opinion article in the Dec. 13 issue of the Reporter. I would hate to think that he actually believes that because those who don’t finish high school are more likely to commit crime that there is a cause and effect relationship between the two. A far likelier explanation is that those with an underlying tangle of social and biological pathologies are both less likely to finish high school and more likely to commit

crime. Consider, for example, the plight of a student who suffers from fetal alcohol syndrome. The brain damage suffered by this person will make it more difficult to finish high school and will also, by reducing self control, predispose him to commit crime. Whatever the benefits of finishing high school, this achievement cannot undo the effects of that damage. Our state policy regarding truancy should not be influenced by a horribly flawed interpretation of statistics. The costs and benefits of laws in general, including the “Becca law,” should be informed by a realistic interpretation of the available statistics. If statistics show that men who

wear a necktie to work are less likely to commit crime, that does not mean that mandating that all men wear a necktie to work would reduce the crime rate.

Bad decision on wind farms, eagles Many Eastside Audubon members were shocked and dismayed to learn of the U.S. Department of Interior’s plan to allow 30-year permits for killing bald and golden eagles at wind farms. We know wind energy is a key part of our national effort to combat climate change. But Eastside Audubon believes we must carefully site and manage those facilities to

reduce impacts to birds and other wildlife. This 30-year permit locks us into a path that will result in unnecessarily large numbers of dead eagles. How can the Interior Department sanction the needless killing of our national symbol, the bald eagle? On behalf of the Eastside Audubon chapter of the National Audubon Society, we urge Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to reverse this decision and work with conservation groups and the wind industry to come up with a better solution — one that promotes wind energy and minimizes collateral damage to our bald and golden eagle populations.

Three die from H1N1 flu virus at EvergreenHealth BY SARAH KEHOE

The Washington State Health Department and local physicians reported seeing a dramatic influenza increase in the past two weeks. “We have seen multiple hospitalizations and even deaths,” said Dr. Francis Riedo, Medical Director of Infection Control at Evergreen Health. “Most of the people we have treated are between the ages of 20 and 50 years old, which is unusual. It is usually the elderly we see getting ill.” Riedo confirmed three patients have died from

the H1N1 virus during the past two weeks. All were between 30-50 years of age and not vaccinated. “We cannot say where these patients are from or give out any names because that information is confidential,” Riedo said. King County Public Health also reports infections are on the rise locally, as seasonal influenza has gone from barely detectable levels in early December to widespread in King County. “We urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible as this is the best way to avoid getting sick,” Riedo said. “And if you do get sick, stay home from work

or school to avoid spreading influenza.” The flu vaccine is in plentiful supply and it’s not too late to get vaccinated to reduce your chances of getting the flu. Influenza activity generally peaks in January or later in our region and continues circulating until spring. Another important line of protection is antiviral drugs, especially for people with severe influenza or at high risk of complications. Antiviral treatment should be started promptly if you are pregnant or in a highrisk group and develop flu symptoms, including fever, cough, sore throat and

muscle aches. The predominant strain circulating currently is influenza A H1N1, which happens to be the same one that led to the 2009 flu pandemic. This virus causes infections and severe illness in all ages, but compared to other influenza strains, it causes higher rates of illness and death among young and middle-age adults, including those with no underlying health conditions. Pregnant women should get vaccinated at any stage of pregnancy. The flu vaccine is both safe and effective for pregnant women, including during the first

trimester. Vaccinating during pregnancy protects not only the mother but the fetus and child as well. Newborn infants can’t be vaccinated until they’re six months old, according to the health department. Anyone who lives with or cares for an infant younger than six months should also get vaccinated to protect the infant from getting flu. Other members of the community at increased risk for severe influenza include the elderly and people who have longterm health problems, like diabetes, asthma, and heart or lung problems.


The flu vaccine (shots and nasal spray) is available at many health care provider offices and pharmacies for those who have insurance or are able to pay for vaccination. Visit flushot. to find locations. If you don’t have insurance, you can find free or low-cost insurance through Washington Healthplanfinder. Other immunization assistance is available through the Family Health Line at (800) 322-2588. For more information, visit www.

As part of a statewide initiative to preserve federally subsidized rental housing, the King County Housing Authority (KCHA) recently completed the purchase of four Section 8 “expiring use” properties in King County, including Patricia Harris Manor, a 41-unit complex that houses very low-income seniors in Redmond. The other properties acquired by KCHA are Bellevue Manor in Bellevue (66 units of senior housing), Northwood Square in Auburn (24 units of family housing) and Vashon Terrace on Vashon Island (16 units of family housing). Together, the four properties serve 107 seniors and 40 families with children. “Preserving existing subsidized housing is the most cost-effective way to maintain the supply of affordable rental apartments,” said Stephen Norman, executive director of the KCHA. “Thanks to the support of King County, we have been able to protect 147 lowincome households, most of whom are frail seniors, from being forced from their homes — and at the

same time, have preserved these crucial local housing resources for the long term.” The preservation of these complexes is important because of the populations they serve, their highly desirable locations and the federal funding they leverage. The Section 8 contract preserved through the acquisition of Patricia Harris Manor provides about $370,000 in annual rent subsidies, keeping this housing affordable to low-income seniors. Eighty-five percent of current residents are 70 years old or older; one resident is over 90. Their average annual household income is approximately $10,000. Demand for housing affordable to low-income seniors greatly surpasses the supply and the need is growing. In King County, it is expected that the number of seniors living in poverty will increase to 53,793 in 2025, up from 23,617 in 2008. The complex is well-sited, located close to downtown Redmond, and within easy walking distance of shopping, mass transit and com-

munity facilities. King County is assisting in the acquisition through the provision of $1 million to fund fire safety and handicapped accessibility repairs and upgrades for all four complexes. “I’m very pleased that King County could assist in ensuring that the Patricia Harris Manor continues to be available for housing for seniors ranging from 70-plus to 96 years old,” said King County Council member Kathy Lambert. “Our senior population continues to expand and preserving this property for senior housing is a wise and strategic investment of taxpayer funds.” Between 1965 and 1990, the federal government subsidized private developers to build and operate rental housing for low-income families as well as disabled and elderly households living on fixed incomes. These developers executed longterm rental subsidy agreements under the Section 8 program. The initial Section 8 contract on Patricia Harris Manor has already expired; a subsequent short-term

contract renewal expires on Dec.1, 2015. Given the excellent location of the property, there is little doubt that had a private developer acquired this site, Patricia Harris Manor would have been demolished or redeveloped as condominiums or highend rentals. The current owner, who was also the initial developer and longterm owner of the property, worked with the housing authority to assure the preservation of these apartments as affordable housing. The entire portfolio of nine subsidized properties was put on the market as an “all or none sale” by the seller. KCHA is acting as lead purchaser on behalf of four other local housing authorities in preserving the five properties situated outside of King County. The combined purchase price for the portfolio is $28.7 million. The housing authority is using tax-exempt debt to finance the purchase. These properties will continue to be managed by Westwood Management, the current property manager of the complexes.

that in everything we do.” And that connection to community is in line with the small community feel of Kirkland, Vaughn said. Vaughn, Robeal and Kalavakur researched how their idea would be received this past summer. Speaking to 300 craft-beer people at beer festivals around western Washington, they discovered many agreed with the business idea.

“You have to be careful as an entrepreneur to not just do what you think the world wants but to actually make sure someone besides you (does),” he said, adding it took about six months to plan the business. Keeping in mind their audience generally has some kind of disposable income, the beers cost between $7 to $18 per bottle with the majority being

around $7 to $10. The flat rate shipping fee is $9.95 a month. Vaughn said the goal is to be at price with grocery store beers so they can have a larger focus on hard-to-find, exclusive beers. Tavour will eventually look to sell and deliver wine but because there’s “only so much Washington wine” keeping the connection between

people is harder given the geographic limitations. “One thing awesome about beer is you can have a brewery in Kirkland that takes ingredients that are predominantly local,” Vaughn said. “… It’s this combination of both ingredients plus process and recipe, which makes beer really innovative almost like food is. We’ll do wine after we get beer right.” The trio also hopes to expand their business from five employees to 10 this month and eventually get a delivery truck. But until then, deliveries will be done by co-founders in their personal vehicles. “We can’t ever scale beyond the need of the customer,” Vaughn said. “We’re starting here and we’ll expand as the business warrants it.” For more information on Tavour, visit www. or the Tavour Facebook page.


Like many craft beer lovers, Tavour CEO Philip Vaughn stumbled upon the brew after years of associating beer with the poor quality stuff he drank in college. “You sort of feel like someone’s been telling you about Santa Claus your whole life and you found out there was no Santa Claus kind of thing,” said Vaughn, a Kirkland resident since 2007. “It’s kind of like someone told you this great beer was Bud Light and then you found out there’s all this different kind of beer. It unearths this whole new love for it.” It was this passion for craft beer and the concept of connecting people to it that led Vaughn and co-founders Rafik Robeal of Redmond and Sethu Kalavakur of Seattle to launch the downtown Kirkland-based Tavour, a craft beer delivery service, just weeks ago. So far, Vaughn said demand has been overwhelmingly positive among customers and breweries. Customers simply register at their website and receive daily email offers for craft beer from local breweries. If a customer wants the product, he or she replies to the email with how many bottles, one of the owners processes the request and it is sent out on the next delivery date. Customers receive deliveries of the beer at their doorstep on the 10th of every month. “The idea was started because when you go into the grocery store people typically find the same things over and over again,” Vaughn said. “So, what we’re trying to do is

give people access to that unique and interesting beer.” But Tavour also aims to connect people to the story behind the product — which bars or stores sell the beer, how long it took the brewer to come up with the recipe and information about the ingredients. Vaughn said their audience, a highly educated young tech generation, doesn’t want to be marketed to. They want authenticity, the story of the people and producers, he said. “We’re all so smartphoned and digitized,” Vaughn said. “We came from a tech background … ex-Microsoft, ex-Amazon people, and it just kind of became this desire to build this business that is authentic and not trying to be a billion dollars on Day One, but trying to connect with people and tell a story and make people happy and connect them to their community and their area.” While Tavour delivers beer from some breweries out of state, the majority are in Washington, as are their customers, which are “pleasantly divided” between men and women. “Beer is this backdrop into a subculture into a way of life, into a group of people … that’s what alcohol is, it’s a conduit for connection to people,” Vaughn said. “So we’re really looking to express

[ Park from page 1] came up with to put an end to this ongoing battle between bike jumpers and the city. The city continued meeting with the community and according to the report, hired a consultant, Hilride Progression Development Group, to design a new and improved bike jump park. The park was to be built by community members and bike jumpers and Hope said that is still the plan two and half years later. “We’ll start recruiting volunteers as soon as we get permits,” she said, adding that while the park will be constructed by volunteers, parks operations staff will be onsite to supervise. Hope said many of those who would be using the park were teens when the concept was first conceived. Now many of those teens are older and have left the area for college. “A lot of them are gone,” she said. Because of this, city staff will have to work to recruit new volunteers, though Hope said some of those who left for college may come back for the summer and make use of the Bike Park as originally planned. She said another goal of the park is to have stewards from the community who will help to maintain the site throughout the years.

Bike jumpers currently construct their own jumps in the wooded area near Hartman Park on Education Hill. The new Redmond Bike Park will have similar jumps and will be built by community volunteers with city staff supervising. Project manager Carolyn Hope said they hope to begin construction in May.

The suspect vehicle swerved toward the officers. Redmond officers deployed a stop stick device as the vehicle attempted to flee again. RPD and WSP officers pursued the vehicle. The vehicle subsequently crashed into a post in a resident’s yard.



At 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, the Redmond Police Department (RPD) received a report that an erratically driven vehicle was traveling southbound Avondale Road.

January 10, 2014 [9] [CEF from page 1] services center at 14959 N.E. 95th St. in Redmond. A grand opening and ribbon cutting event was held at the center on Jan. 3. Before moving into its current location, CEF spent about a year and a half in offices at JMS Construction on Willows Road Northeast in Redmond. CEF communications manager Rachel Tougher said JMS donated the space to them. She added that the new location works well because it’s not too far from their previous location and is close to State Route 520 for patients coming from Seattle and other areas. “It’s a perfect place,” Tougher

said. “It’s a great hub of information and community.” Tougher said CEF advocates for patients in all ways possible once they are diagnosed with brain cancer or a brain tumor. From answering any questions patients and their families may have, to talking with doctors, to working with pharmaceutical companies, she said they walk patients through the entire process. Tougher said often times, when people find information about brain cancer and brain tumors, there usually is no one on the other end. At CEF, she said, they want to be the ones people can come to for help and be that

person and voice behind the computer. “Our main focus is that one-on-one interaction,” Tougher said. In addition to helping people navigate through the treatment process, Mydland said they also help them with the day-to-day tasks that can become overwhelming when facing a terminal illness. “We realized how hard that was,” she said about her family’s experiences. “People just needed help.” This help can range from finding a contractor to install the safety railings brain cancer patients need throughout the house, to arranging to pick up children from school.

Currently, the median survivorship for brain cancer and tumor patients is about two years and Tougher said CEF’s goal is to get patients to the five-year mark because there are greater research opportunities at that point. Tougher said nearly 750,000 people live with brain cancer in the United States and people of all demographics are affected pretty equally. “It doesn’t discriminate,” she said. “Men, women and children all over the board get diagnosed.” Although CEF has always been based in the Pacific Northwest and specifically the Eastside, Tougher said they

serve patients throughout Washington and the country as people can access the organization online, over the phone and through social media. Currently, CEF receives about 1,800 inquiries per

month. Tougher said when the organization was first founded, they received only about 40 inquiries per month. For more information about CEF, visit chriselliott

If you’ve been around longtime investors, you’ll probably hear them say, ruefully, “If only I had gotten in on the ground floor of such-and-such computer or social media company, I’d be rich today.” That may be true — but is it really relevant to anyone? Do you have to be an early investor of a spectacular company to achieve investment success? Not really. Those early investors of the “next big thing” couldn’t have fully anticipated the tremendous results enjoyed by those companies. But these investors all had one thing in common: They were ready, willing and able to look for good opportunities. And that’s what you need to do, too. Of course, you may never snag the next big thing, but that’s not the point. If you’re going to be a successful investor, you need to be diligent in your search for new opportunities. And these opportunities don’t need to be brand-new to the financial markets — they can just be new to you. For example, when you look at your investment portfolio, do you see the same types of investments? If you own mostly aggressive growth stocks, you have the possibility of gains — but, at the same time, you do risk taking losses, from which it may take years to recover. On the other hand, if you’re “overloaded” with certificates of deposit (CDs) and Treasury bills, you may enjoy protection of principal but at the cost of growth potential, because these investments rarely offer much in the way of returns. In fact, they may not even keep up with inflation, which means that if you own too many of them, you will face purchasing-power risk. To

itself for de-cluttering and donating unwanted items to charities. It may be a good idea to secure the painter and the handyman before the holidays, as most contractors’ phones start ringing shortly after New Year’s Eve. For the winter buyer, this season may afford the benefit of seeing the houses perform their duties of keeping the inhabitants warm and dry, with all the systems put to the test and therefore preventing the unwelcome surprises of discovering a leaky roof or basement or a faltering furnace. Our homes mean much more to us this time of the year — more than a shelter from the cold and rain. It is a place where we celebrate with our families and make memories. Wishing everyone a place to call “home”!

To avoid these problems, look for opportunities to broaden your holdings beyond just one or two asset classes. Here’s another way to take advantage of opportunities: Don’t take a “time out” from investing. When markets are down, people’s fears drive them to sell investments whose prices have declined — thereby immediately turning “paper” losses into real ones — rather than holding on to quality investment vehicles and waiting for the market to recover. But successful investors are often rewarded when they not only hold on to investments during declines but also increase their holdings by purchasing investments whose prices have fallen — or adding new shares to existing investments — thereby following the first rule of investing: Buy low. When the market rises again, these investors should see the value of their new investments, or the shares of their existing ones,

increase in value. (Keep in mind, though, that, when investing in stocks, there are no guarantees; some stocks do lose value and may never recover.) Instead of looking for that one great “hit” in the form

of an early investment in a skyrocketing stock, you’re better off by seeking good opportunities in the form of new investments that can broaden your existing portfolio or by adding additional shares, at good prices, to your

existing investments. These moves are less glitzy and glamorous than getting in on the ground floor of the next big thing — but, in the long run, they may make you look pretty smart indeed.

Alex Kudryashov and Chase Simmons both attended J.

He has seven pins and finished second at the Nathan Hale High tournament. Coach Mullen said that Kudryashov is a committed, steady and smart wrestler. “I give 100 percent, even when I’m tired...

Providing Complete Plumbing & Heating Services in King County Since 1964

Heating Season is Here!

Check out our Furnace Tune-up Special Below!

Q/A | with David Brown – Owner, Fox Plumbing & Heating “How did Fox Plumbing & HeatQ ing get started?” :


: Virgil Fox started the company in 1964; even as a young man, I loved “hands on work” and was proud to be a tradesman. I joined the company in 1973 and thrived in the environment of high standards and hard work. By 1979 I was half owner of the company, purchasing it in its entirety in 1983. I was dedicated to the value of quality service at a fair price and understood the importance of keeping every customer, since then I’ve expanded but maintained our deep commitment to integrity and quality work. Our customers tell us time and time again that we are the most trustworthy plumbing service in King County.



“What plumbing services do you offer? And do you do both repair and installation?”


: If it has to do with pipes and water, we have the skilled workforce to both fix ailing systems and install new systems. We work in old and new homes as well as in businesses and commercial environments – we are experts in fixing old systems. We’re not always looking to sell people something new; if it can be fixed we fix it. We offer a full range of plumbing services from sewers to hot water tanks. We help our customers save money by offering plumbing system tune-ups, which are continually growing in popularity because they save people on the cost of repairs by catching problems early. We’re very excited to announce that

we have expanded and now service and install all types of heating, furnaces and air conditioning, too. We are committed to our customers and to our staff, providing on-going training to make sure our technicians are simply the best trained in the business.

the problem. After an emergency many of our customers participate in our $99 annual Plumbing Tune-up program, which saves them hundreds even thousands of dollars in the long run and they are seeing great improvements in their plumbing systems.

Q “Do you guarantee your services?” A :

: Absolutely, we have the best written warranties in the business. We provide our customers with the right price for the service and then guarantee the work. We have received the best service award from Angie’s list for over 6 years and are always top rated. Our customers will tell you about their experience with Fox Plumbing and Heating and we encourage them to do so. 80% of our new business comes from current customer referrals, we’re proud of this record and intend to continue it, every customer is important to us, I’ve built this whole business around satisfied customers, when we say “it’s all about service”, we mean it.

an emergency, what’s the best thing to do? What about afterhours and on Q “In the weekends?” :


: Call us 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Pipes, sewers, water heaters, toilets, sinks and furnaces can’t tell time and often chose the worst time to act up and break down. We get this and have experts available to assist you whenever you need it, at your home or business. We have dispatchers and technicians on call 24 hours per day. On our website we have emergency water shut off videos to help people in times of emergency. It’s understandable that most people don’t even think of their plumbing until something goes wrong, we often get our best customers through our response to an emergency, we’re there and we fix

I have used FOX Plumbing several times over the years for various problems. Prior to calling them I had used 2 other local companies and found them more interested in selling their products than fixing my problems. FOX has always been responsive, they explain what needs to be done, why and how they will do it--and at a reasonable cost. I own an older home and their staff know their stuff, they are polite and thoughtful of the customers needs. - Nancy Travis, Seattle
