Three years ago, students from Rosa Parks Elementary School on Redmond Ridge performed a play for and in honor of a fellow student who had been diagnosed with leukemia. As a second-grader, Prakriti Shukla participated in that performance. She knew the boy — who was in kindergarten at the time — and his family as they lived in the same neighborhood. “It really affected him and his family,” she said about the boy’s illness. “It affected the

whole school.” The experience affected Prakriti as well, and it has stuck with her all these years. Now in the fifth grade, the 10-year-old has chosen blood and brain cancer as the topics of a year-long research project for her pull-out Quest class at Elizabeth Blackwell Elementary School in Sammamish. “I chose cancer because a lot of people have cancer and I wanted to help them,” she said.

A LASTING EFFECT

Ritu Gupta, Prakriti’s mother, had not realized how much their young neighbor — who fought and won his battle with cancer — and his illness had affected her daughter until Prakriti asked Gupta for stamps one day in November 2013. [ more HUTCH page 6]

Cleveland Streetscape Volunteers make a difference on MLK Day project is on the way ANDY NYSTROM

Construction for the City of Redmond’s Cleveland Streetscape project is set to start in early February. The project is part of the city’s effort to turn downtown Redmond into an urban neighborhood. Project manager Lisa Singer said it is also the final step before Cleveland Street and Redmond Way are converted into two-way streets. To prepare for the upcoming construction, the City of Redmond hosted

an open house last night in the Red160 Apartments lobby on Cleveland Street. The purpose of the open house was to share the city’s downtown vision and how Cleveland Street will transform into downtown Redmond’s new “main street.” Also included in the evening’s program were updates on the Downtown Park Master Plan, arts and cultural programming and new parking options as they are helping to shape the future of Redmond’s downtown neighborhood.

As Redmond City Council member Hank Myers gazed into one corner of Westside Park on Monday morning, he had a look of pride in his eyes. In that section of the local park, 36 student and adult volunteers worked away and cleared out heaps of leaves and branches to spruce up the area. Myers deemed Green Redmond Partnership’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service a success. “What I think that really has been great is the general service concept: going out and serving your community in whatever way you can,” said Myers, echoing King Jr.’s famous quote, “Life’s most persis-

Forterra programs grow dramatically over the last several years. They no longer produce just four or five park service events a year; they now get out into the community 11 months out of the year. “It’s made a big difference in our parks,” Myers said.

Foster then issued the following statement regarding Ferguson’s formal opinion concerning marijuana businesses: “On behalf of my fellow board members, I would like to thank Attorney General Ferguson for providing a thorough legal analysis of our request as to whether a local government could formally or effectively ban a marijuana business from its jurisdiction. The formal opinion indicates that they have the ability to do so. “The legal opinion will be a disappointment to the majority of Washington’s voters who approved Initiative 502. We’re not yet sure how this opinion will change the implementation of the initiative.

The formal opinion concludes Initiative 502 as drafted and presented to the voters does not prevent local governments from regulating or banning marijuana businesses in their jurisdictions: “Under Washington law, there is a strong presumption against finding that state law preempts local ordinances. Although Initiative 502 establishes a licensing and regulatory system for marijuana producers, processors, and retailers in Washington State, it includes no clear indication that it was intended to preempt local authority to regulate such businesses. We therefore conclude that I-502 left in place the normal powers of local governments to regulate within their jurisdictions.”

Seahawks are rolling to the Super Bowl

GO SEAHAWKS

Matt Phelps

I remember playing football in the street in front of my house with my best friend when I was young. I would pretend to be Steve Largent while he threw Hail Mary passes to me. It is a cliché but it is a great memory. It is what most little kids who are sports fans do when they are young. But growing up a Seattle sports fan has always come with a bit of a price — eternal disappointment. Largent never played in a Super Bowl, Griffey never even won an American League Pennant and Gary Payton got his ring — in Miami. I have friends who have moved away and disassociated themselves from Seattle teams. I have friends who have lived here their entire lives and decided to adopt other teams out of impatience or just frustration. To make memories with someone else’s team. Sometimes I don’t blame them. But that is not me. While San Francisco 49er fans have great memories of “The Catch” against the Cowboys in an NFC title game and Lombardi trophies with Joe Montana and Steve Young, we got Rick Mirer fumbles and promises that Dan McGwire, of all people, would be the next big thing. I am old enough to remember watching the Hawks lose to the Raiders in the AFC title game and then get angry as Ken Behring tried to move the team to Los Angeles. But it is not just the Hawks. I am not old enough to have the memories of the Sonics winning the NBA championship. For fans my age, who are diehard Seattle sports addicts, it is a commitment like no other. We had hope that the Sonics would dethrone the Jordan-led Bulls, just to watch them give their all and lose in six games. We have nightmares of the Mariners winning 116 games and never even making it to the World Series. We all died a little inside when we saw Kevin Durant in a Thunder uniform for the first time. In 2006, it seemed like it was our year to finally make a World Championship memory. We had Holmgren and Hasselbeck, and we were on a roll.

But then came the nightmare, a referee from Pittsburgh, phantom penalties and “win one for the Bus.” And yes, it was difficult to be a Red Sox fan for nearly a century. But fans in Boston also had the Bruins and Celtics to fall back on. And yes there are the Cubs. But fans in Chicago had the Bulls, Blackhawks and the Bears. Other teams and cities have broken their losing ways. I have memories of when the Tampa Bay Bucks, New England Patriots, Devil Rays and Clippers were all the laughingstocks of their respective Former Seahawk Nesby Glasgow rallies the 12th Man at last Saturday’s Volume 12 gathering in Redmond Town Center. Courtesy photo leagues. But something is different this year with this team. The game adrenaline-fueled rant. And they will remember that. against San Francisco was epic, memorable. We had But it was not the rant that people will remember rallies for the team in nearly every outlying city in the around here in 10 or 20 years. It will be us beating Puget Sound area. We have Blue Friday. A “12” lit up our old division rival the Denver Broncos and the in two skyscrapers in downtown Seattle. We have the memory of “The Tip” that got us there. loudest stadium in the world. But all the national media outlets talked about Matt Phelps is the editor of the Kirkland Reporter after the game was Richard Sherman’s emotional and Bothell/Kenmore Reporter.

Niners lose, sadness wins — but we’ll be back next year I remember waiting for the dreaded phone call from my schoolmate, Tony. Whenever his favorite pro sports teams beat mine, he’d call my home to rub it in. I’d never answer the phone myself, knowing that it was Tony ready to pounce (it was always playful, but still harsh to an elementary schooler like me). I’d get sick to my stomach when my teams lost. Going to school the day after a loss was hell — Tony would always be there to remind me of the outcome. When my teams beat his, I

would never call his home. I was a silent celebrator. I knew he was mad, and that was good enough for me. I had that sick feeling again prior to coming into work on Monday. The Seahawks beat my 49ers on Sunday — and it was a tough pill to swallow, especially after we nearly pulled out a victory in one of the most exciting games I’ve ever watched. We’re all adults here at the proSeahawk Reporter, so nobody ragged on me for losing the big game. One workmate offered condolences as we discussed the Andy Nystrom

OPINION

[4] January 24, 2014

top plays, played Monday morning quarterback on some missed referees’ calls and how they changed the flow of the game and other pieces of the NFC championship match that might as well have been the Super Bowl — it was that hyped, and that stellar. Before I went to bed on Sunday night, I vowed to my wife (a huge Niner fan, as well) that I wouldn’t let the outcome affect me the next day. I slept well, but when the alarm rang on Monday, I was upset again. Many plays from the game rolled through my head and I wondered why my team didn’t play better, play smarter and eke out the victory. But that’s what happens when you’re

a sports fan. You sign up for the wins — and painful losses. In the end, the Seahawks were the better team on Sunday because they came through when it counted the most. I have to accept that. I knew they were rolling through a dream season, but I still hoped the Niners would prevail and return to the Super Bowl. We nearly did. But we choked. Now it’s the Seahawks’ turn to play for the NFL title. They deserve this success. So do the Denver Broncos. It should be a thrilling Super Bowl. And ... mark my words, we’ll be back in full force next year.

Letters may be edited for style, clarity and length. Why is Isenhower running against Hill? It is a pity Matt Isenhower has decided to run against our state Sen. Andy Hill. It might be better if he ran for Larry Springer or Roger Goodman’s House seats. Hill has worked consistently to successfully add $1 billion to the education budget in this state with no tax increases. Consider for a moment the endorsement that Hill deservedly received when his legislative colleagues, including Democrats, passed his budget by an unprecedented 89 percent “yea” vote. May I say it again, this was without a tax increase. Mr. Isenhower claims to support education. Well, don’t we all? If Mr. Isenhower really wished to help the schools, he could have been advocating, as a member of the PTSA, to trim the excessive expenditures in the Lake Washington School District (LWSD). For example, the bloated and overpaid bureaucracy or the wasteful and very expensive program of tearing down good solid buildings (most of them newer than the houses most of us live in) just to be replaced by overpriced Taj Mahals. He could have been advocating for focusing the money on the classrooms and a solid future for our students. Now he wants to be our senator? I think not. All of which reminds me, vote no on Prop. 3. More than enough money has been spent by the LWSD bureaucrats on new/replacement facilities rather than modernizing the ones we have. It is time to improve the level of education and improve the percentage of graduation in the district, not replace good facilities with extraordinary facilities. It is time to reign in the wasteful bureaucracy and work for our students’ futures.

handed it to the consultant. She pulled a pen from behind her ear, quickly drew lines through the names of four school districts and handed the list back to me. The only district that was not crossed out was the Lake Washington School District (LWSD). She said, “That’s where you want to work.” She was right. The LWSD has a long tradition and a strong reputation as not only one of the finest school district in our state but in the entire country. This is due to the skills of teachers, secretaries and other staff but also from the ongoing support of parents and community. Please support the continued excellence of the LWSD by voting in support of the upcoming levies and bond.

Jeff Newport, Duvall

Why do realtors endorse school levies? Realtors know high quality schools are important in every neighborhood. Good schools are a priority — and not just for parents. Savvy buyers and sellers know that quality schools are a factor in home values. Seattle King County Realtors recently heard presentations by volunteers from the Lake Washington Citizens Levy Committee, notably realtor Kerri Nielsen, a former teacher. She took time out of her busy day to make the case for students in the Lake

Washington School District (LWSD), and to answer questions from brokers. Realtors understand the importance of supplementing state funding for basic classroom needs, but as homeowners and taxpayers, we are also concerned about the “return on investment.” I and other residents in the LWSD can be proud of the exemplary record of fiscal management and accountability by district officials. Equally impressive are student achievements on various college-readiness benchmarks. LWSD is addressing diverse needs with innovative college prep and career-technical curriculum. Teachers and administrators deserve praise not only for their role in these accomplishments, but also for recognizing the importance of helping students meet employability standards. In addition to endorsing renewal of the Educational Programs and Operation Levy, our members also — by unanimous vote — approved support for the Capital Projects Levy and the bond measure to add classroom space and replace aging facilities. As one of my colleagues stated, supporting school levies is not a matter of altruism — it’s economics. I’ll be voting yes three times on the Feb. 11 ballot, and I hope residents district-wide will join me.

We think the best way to care for our neighbors is to be in the neighborhood.

www.redmond-reporter.com AN EXCITING OPPORTUNITY

The stamps were for letters Prakriti had written to send to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle and the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC), requesting some information to help with her research project. When Gupta learned this and her daughter’s topic of choice for her Quest project, she had a few concerns — mainly about the amount of work it would require, pointing out that Prakriti would be working on this in addition to her regular schoolwork. Gupta also said her daughter’s Quest class only meets once a week, so she may not be able to get help from her teacher as much as she may need. “It’s all done by her, independently,” Gupta said. She was also concerned that Prakriti would get her hopes up about the letters she sent and not receive a response. “I just didn’t want her to be sad,” Gupta said. However, they received a response from Fred Hutch shortly after the letters were sent, inviting her, her teacher and class to visit the center to learn more about what the organization does.

“Staff is very excited about the transformation of downtown,” Singer said. The Cleveland Streetscape will cost $5 million and is funded by a $3.37 million Surface Transportation Program (Urban) federal grant and the city’s Capital Improvements Programs budget. Work will be done by Tri-State Construction, Inc., stretch from 161st Avenue Northeast to 164th Avenue Northeast and include various improvements. For more information on the project, visit www. redmond.gov and click on “See What’s Happening in Downtown Redmond” or contact Jill Smith at jesmith@ redmond.gov or call (425) 556-2448.

A UNIQUE STREET

As part of its intended “main street” feel, Singer said the new Cleveland Street will feature urban design and visual elements to make it unique from any other road in Redmond. The first main

Prakriti’s Quest class at Blackwell could not go due to scheduling and logistical conflicts but her fifthgrade class at Rosa Parks was able to visit Fred Hutch last Friday. Pull-out Quest instructor Nancy Pfaff added that each of her students are researching different topics for their projects, ranging from computer programming to art, so a visit to Fred Hutch would not work for her class as it would only apply to Prakriti’s project. However, Pfaff said she was delighted to hear that Prakriti’s class at Rosa Parks was able to go. “It’s an exciting thing,” she said about their opportunity. Kristian Brekke, Prakriti’s fifth-grade teacher at Rosa Parks, agreed. He said the field trip was an opportunity for his students to see the inquiry process they have been studying in science applied to a real-life situation. During their visit, the students learned how to spool DNA from strawberries as part of a hands-on science activity. Naomi Bogenschutz, a volunteer with Fred Hutch’s Science Education Partnership, led the activity. “(The students) were excited, curious and asked a lot of very

difference is that both the sidewalks and roadway will be concrete. Singer said roads are typically asphalt, adding that concrete may cost more initially, but it will not require as much maintenance in the long run. In addition, the concrete, which will be poured into a pattern, will offer a certain aesthetic look as it is lighter than the usual asphalt. The Cleveland Streetscape will feature a curb-less sidewalk and include landscaped areas with benches as opposed to being lined with trees like the other roads throughout downtown, Singer said. To prepare for the Downtown Couplet Conversion project that will turn Cleveland Street and Redmond Way into two-way streets, there will be some underground utility work and other infrastructural work done such as adjusting curb lines and moving traffic signals. Two new crosswalks will also be added between 161st Avenue Northeast and Leary Way.

intelligent questions, which are qualities that every scientist should have,” she said, adding that she enjoyed watching the students work and their reactions throughout the activity. This was not Bogenschutz’s first time leading the strawberry activity, but this was the youngest group she’s worked with. She was worried the students might be too young to understand what they were doing, but she said the activity was a “huge success.” “They had clearly been thinking about cells and DNA before they came to the Hutch, which is a testament to the excellent preparation their teacher, Kristian Brekke, gave them,” Bogenschutz said. “I couldn’t believe how much his fifth-graders knew about DNA already.” They also met with Damon May, co-director of Fred Hutch’s optides research group, which focuses on developing molecules engineered to attack cancer cells without harming the healthy cells around them. May also talked with the students about Tumor Paint, a tiny protein that comes from scorpion venom attached to a tiny flashlight that can bind selectively to brain tumors. The tiny flashlight causes the tumors to glow.

Singer said they are doing all of this now so when the project is complete in early 2015, there will be minimal work required for the couplet conversions.

EASING FRUSTRATIONS

The Cleveland Streetscape will impact traffic along the street throughout the year. “It’s a frustrating process,” acknowledged Anne Marie Peacock, communications specialist for the City of Redmond. Recently, construction in another area of downtown Redmond has led the Redmond Police Department (RPD) and mayor’s office to field calls from drivers who were frustrated about how lane closures and limited left turns were affecting their drive. “It’s a tough one for everybody,” said RPD officer and spokesperson Mike Dowd. Two Reporter readers have already voiced their concerns on the paper’s Facebook page. One comment reads: “I’m concerned about traffic

“With Tumor Paint, instead of feeling around with fingers and thumbs to try to figure out what’s healthy brain and what’s tumor, surgeons will be able to see the tumors glowing,” May said. “In an operation where a few millimeters either way can mean life, death or permanent neurological damage, this has the potential to revolutionize treatment.” In addition to learning from May, Prakriti also had the opportunity to interview Dr. Jim Olson, the clinical researcher at Fred Hutch whose team developed Tumor Paint, for her project. “It was really interesting,” she said.

BENEFICIAL FOR ALL

As a strong proponent of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, Gupta said she was glad her daughter and her classmates had the opportunity to visit Fred Hutch and is proud Prakriti was the one to make it happen. “As a parent, it’s just uplifting,” Gupta said. This was the first time May had spoken with kids about science, and while he was initially nervous, he praised the students for being a

delays during long-term construction. Like that area isn’t congested enough as it is.” Singer said to prepare the community for the traffic impacts to come with the Cleveland Streetscape, the city will continue active outreach efforts during construction through multiple methods including an email list, message boards throughout downtown, traffic alerts and more. “We know the resident businesses have been impacted,” Singer said about the construction. She said they want to be sensitive to this, so the city has added staff to the project who will focus on community outreach to get information out to area businesses who will be affected — who in turn, can communicate the information to their customers. Singer said city staff will also meet with businesses throughout the year prior to portions of the projects that may have more significant impacts on their buildings. Singer said this type of

“great audience.” “They were impressively smart and prepared — they even knew the names of the DNA nucleotides,” he said. “I think it’s really important to show kids that science can be fun and exciting.” May added that as a father, meeting with the students was good practice for talking with his own daughter when she is old enough to understand it. According to Brekke, his class’s visit to Fred Hutch was impactful as his students continue to comment on it. Meeting Bogenschutz was particularly impressive to the students. Brekke said Bogenschutz was a phenomenal role model particularly for his female students who may not have many young women to look up to in STEM. Bogenschutz said, “You never know the age at which someone might be inspired to become a scientist…I think it’s extremely important to give kids (and adults) exposure to science throughout their lives, and I’m glad we were able to provide this experience to such young students.” Brekke added that his students were also impressed with how everyone they met at Fred Hutch

outreach work has led to fewer complaints from the community as they are more aware of what is going on and how to plan their drive accordingly. Peacock agreed, saying the city’s outreach efforts have been helpful.

NEW PARKING OPTIONS

In addition to traffic impacts, the Cleveland Streetscape will also impact parking availability downtown. To provide more options for residents, visitors and the business community, the city has recently expanded its downtown parking options. The boundary for monitored on-street parking has been expanded to the east and south and is more inclusive of the downtown’s urban center. To view the monitored parking area map visit www.redmond.gov/trans

A new downtown paid parking lot, which adds 92 spaces to the neighborhood, has also been completed. It is located at 7541 Leary Way at the corner of Bear Creek Parkway and Leary Way, adjacent to the Redmond Central Connector. Users can enter the lot off Bear Creek Parkway. The lot is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is monitored Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. All vehicles must register at the pay machine and pricing varies from $1 up to $5 for all day parking, with the first hour free.

A BRIGHT FUTURE

From this situation, Gupta saw a young leader in her daughter in many ways: Bringing the opportunity to visit Fred Hutch to her teacher and peers; showing Fred Hutch, which usually gets visits from older students in college and high school, a new demographic to reach out to and inspiring Gupta to make the center her charity of choice through her employer Honeywell Aerospace. And these early leadership skills will not be wasted on Prakriti, who has big plans for her future. “I really want to cure cancer, but I also want to be president,” she said.

Seven Wonderful Schnauzers and One Toy Poodle in need of a “Forever Home”

We know ALL of them will be healthy, adoptable and beautiful dogs. These wonderful dogs who have been receiving medical care from VCA Redwood AnimalHospital have been safely placed in foster homes through Rebecca’s Rainbow. Rebecca’s Rainbow is a non-profit organization in Washington State dedicated to the care and placement of pets whose owners are critically or terminally ill. Founded in 2009, the organization is named after Rebecca Nanna, a former employee at VCA Redwood Animal Hospital whose love for animal’s lives on with Rebecca’s Rainbow. “This charity was formed in her honor & we are proud to be associated with their noble efforts”, said Jika Martinez, VCA Animal Hospitals. Michele Hayward, Co-founder of Rebecca’s Rainbow (www.rebeccasrainbow.org) said all the dogs will make wonderful pets once all of them received the medical care they need. “Thankfully we have foster homes lined up for all 8 dogs where they will begin healing from their surgeries and past traumas. Once they are stabilized, we look forward to placing these precious FURkids in their FURever homes”, said Michele. All will be available for adoption within a few weeks.

Here are some ways you can help these wonderful dogs:

Some pet parents are very clear about what they are looking in a veterinarian; someone who is empathetic, kind and interactive with their animal, doesn’t rush through exams, knows how to work with a shy, nervous, anxious or cranky patient (the dog), politely answers your questions and is skilled at their job. These owners want a connection and will drive miles out of their way to see a trusted vet as it makes them feel their dog is in great hands. Other dog parents seem quite satisfied with a vet who has a clinic within close proximity to them so they do not have to drive too far. They are satisfied with a general overview of their dog’s health. These owners hand the dog off to a tech or staff person and sit in the waiting room until their dog is returned to them. They ask few questions, pay for services rendered and leave the clinic. This person doesn’t love their dog any less than the person who wants to be part of the whole process of their pet’s health care. They may just feel when told all is OK that is good enough or may feel a little intimidated by their vet or the environment.

you can establish a relationship with one vet or will you get the first available vet on any given day? The end result may be satisfactory but the fee differential between a private practice clinic and a corporate owned clinic could be an eye opener. Although some privately owned clinic fees could also make you flinch when you are ready to pay your bill. 4. Is the clinic a member of AAHA, American Animal Hospital Association?

Hips and knees are replaceable because time spent missing out on life isn’t.

Study finds outlook on life may influence longevity That staying physically and mentally fit is important for healthy aging is old news. But how our attitudes can also influence how long we live is not as well understood. Now, a new study from England concluded that being happy, enjoying life, or at least having a sense of contentment may play a much larger role in the way we age than previously thought.

For the study, researchers from the University College London monitored physical and mental functions and also the emotional states of 3,200 male and female participants, all over the age of 60. Those who reported having fun, doing things that gave them pleasure, maintaining an active social life, etc. were found to develop fewer impairments and showed slower declines compared to those who were less upbeat. In fact, differences in attitude seemed to produce remarkable results. People with a lower sense of wellbeing were three times as

likely to end up with health problems as they got older than those whose outlook remained positive. Not surprisingly, those suffering from chronic illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and depression tended to enjoy life the least, which obviously did not help improve their condition either. The study also found that the happier people were not necessarily younger, richer, or even free from illness. The influence of their state of mind on their aging process persisted independent of these other factors, although financial security did apparently play a role, but only to a certain extent, according to Dr. Andrew Steptoe, director of the Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care in the Faculty of Population Health Sciences, and British Heart Foundation professor for psychology in London, England, and author of the study. These latest findings confirm those of another study he published in 2011. Back then, researchers found that participants who considered themselves the happiest could reduce their mortality risk by an astounding 35 percent compared to their least happy counterparts. Five years into the study, the differences in terms of health status and mortality rates already showed. The happier people were overall healthier and aged better, even when taking other factors into account like gender, education, marital status, and financial situation. What was methodically different in these two studies compared to others on the subject is that the researchers asked participants to rate their happiness level several times on one particular day, instead of having them answer general questions about their usual state of mind. By focusing on concrete situations and events and by observing specific responses, the researchers say they were able to discern attitudinal [ more TIMI page 9 ]

differences much better than they would have been by conducting surveys on a wider range of issues and relying on recollections of participants over longer periods of time. While it remains undetermined whether positive emotions play a key role for longevity or are just one factor among others, there seem to be clear indications that how people feel about their lives at any given moment can have a significant impact. Of course, what constitutes happiness is not easily defined. Some may say that people who seem outwardly grumpy or melancholic may not nec-

essarily be devoid of pleasure or satisfaction. It could be just a matter of individual personality or how they behave socially. How emotions are expressed can also depend on cultural particularities. One study from Austria found that more than momentarily occurring feelings, a deeper and lasting sense of contentment and gratitude that comes with growing maturity may produce the greatest benefits, including in terms of health and longevity. The least we can take away from these findings is that people should take their moods more seriously, said Dr. Laura Kubzansky,

a professor for social and behavioral sciences at Harvard University. “I think people sort of undervalue emotional life anyway. This highlights the idea that if you are going through a period where you’re constantly distressed, it’s probably worth paying attention to how you feel – it matters for both psychological and physical health,” she said.

The City of Redmond is recruiting new volunteer members for the Arts and Culture Commission to begin their service in April. Redmond residents, unincorporated King County residents, or people who work in Redmond are eligible to apply. Applications are rolling, but candidates are encouraged to apply by Jan. 31.

and medical scientists who are even better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” said Richard Rossi, executive director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. “Focused, bright and determined students like Catherine Love are our future and she deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her.” The academy offers free services and programs to students who want to be physicians or go into medical science. Some of the services and programs the academy plans to launch in 2013 and 2014 are online social networks through which future doctors and medical scientists can communicate; opportunities for students to be guided and mentored by physicians and

riences for the community and seeding local festivals, including the Ananda Mela Indian Cultural Festival and the Digital Arts Festival. Now, the mission of the Arts Commission is to be a catalyst for Redmond’s diverse and inventive community. The focus of this work includes cultural planning to make the arts accessible, creating a place for the arts, and nurturing the arts in Redmond. Current activities include implementing the Art Plan for downtown Redmond, investigating the economic impact of the arts in Redmond and the Eastside and identifying the cultural needs of the changing community.

medical students; and communications for parents and students on college acceptance and finances, skills acquisition, internships, career guidance and much more. The academy was founded on the belief that we must identify prospective medical talent at the earliest possible age and help these students acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of this vital career. Based in Washington, D.C., the academy was chartered as a nonpartisan, taxpaying institution to help address this crisis by working to identify, encourage and mentor students who wish to devote their lives to the service of humanity as physicians, medical scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.

Arts commissioners serve three-year terms. Working directly with city staff, commissioners attend monthly meetings (second Thursday of each month), participate in special committees and selection panels, cultivate community participation for city arts programs, projects and initiatives and network with artists and cultural providers on behalf of the city.

City looking for civic-results team members Friends of Youth to host In 2008, Redmond City Council and Mayor John Marchione instituted a new way of budgeting for the City of Redmond. This budgeting process, Budgeting by Priorities (BP), developed the city’s last three biennial budgets, set performance measures and moved the focus of the budget toward services and programs valued most by

residents. The city will soon begin the process again for the 2015-16 biennial budget and needs members of the community to volunteer as members of a civic-results team. The six budget priorities, developed in 2008 with citizen involvement, are Business Vitality, Clean and Green Environment, Community Building,

Infrastructure and Growth, Responsible Government and Safety. Following initial training, citizen results team members will work as part of a team to prioritize and rank city budget offers based on their likelihood to contribute toward the priority and city vision. They will then recommend to the mayor which offers should be con-

Judith Mary Cogan, 74, of Redmond, passed away quietly on December 13, 2013 just weeks before her 75th birthday. Her loving daughter and family were at her side. A celebration of Judie’s life was held at Fairwind’s Retirement Home where Judie lived. On display were many of Judie’s beautiful hand-knitted hats, baby sweaters and scarves as well as some of her eclectic cookie jars, taxicabs and photograph albums. A graveside service was held at Issaquah Hillside Cemetery officiated by her dear friend and companion, Rabbi Stanley Yedwab. Judie was born in Chicago on January 25, 1939 to Dolores and Robert Jones. She moved to California as a child and graduated from Canoga Park High School in the San Fernando Valley. Judie earned a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology at California State University, Northridge and spent most of her adult life in The Valley before relocating to Seattle. Judie was married to Gerald Cogan until 2004 and had four children, Kristin, Jeffrey, David and Larry. Sadly, her son, David, pre-deceased her in 1979. Judie’s daughter, Kristin Scott, and son-in-law David Scott were very close to her and brought her up to live in Seattle where she could enjoy her grandchildren, Ryan and Amy McHenry, Trent and Connor Scott and her great grandsons, Sean and Taylor McHenry. Judie had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed cooking, decorating, playing bridge, traveling, the theatre and the opera, scrapbooking, collecting miniatures, cookie jars, taxicabs and teapots. Judie was taught to knit and crochet as a young girl by her beloved grandmother. Knitting was a source of great pride and much satisfaction in seeing the joy of the recipients of her gifts of knitted sweaters, hats and scarfs. Judie was a special person with a love for her family and countless friends, her coffee and her candy, and we will all miss her presence in our lives. A special thanks from the family goes to the staff at Fairwind’s and to all who cared for Judie and gave her joy and companionship in these last few years.
