Council to consider new agreement with utility to fund maintenance New rates would help with city expenses BY SARAH KEHOE skehoe@bothell-reporter.com

The Kenmore City Council will discuss adopting a franchise agreement for water and sewer utilities with Northshore Utility District, at the Feb.

10 city council meeting. The agreement would raise taxpayers’ current water and utility fee by 5 percent and produce around $400,000 per year to the city. Under the assumption a typical household water and sewer

utility bill of $486.52 per month, a 5 percent fee will cost an additional $4.33 per month or $51.96 per year. The fee will not be absorbed by the Northshore Utility District, but will be passed on directly to the rate payers. “Revenue from this

fee will help us keep our city looking beautiful,” said Rob Karlinsey, city manager. Karlinsey stated the city needs the funds from this fee to help offset rising fixed costs, such as street maintenance contracts, fuel and material prices, street maintenance

personnel, and declining revenues available for street maintenance and pavement preservation. “We are a new city and there is still so much to improve upon,” Karlinsey said. “Our priority is making sure our roads are safe for our community.” The city’s street fund

has been subsidized with a general fund transfer each year for 10 years. However, the street fund’s ending balance has been declining as the general fund’s ability to subsidize the street fund has been negatively impacted by the recession and the way [ more RATES page 3 ]

wo security guards won’t face criminal charges for a shooting outside a federal building in Bothell last year. A 15-year-old boy was shot in the foot during the incident. The guards reported that the teen attempted to run one of them down with his mom’s Chrysler 300. One of the guards was struck by the vehicle. Both fired at the car.

Bothell physician suspended for misleading patients BY SARAH KEHOE skehoe@bothell-reporter.com

Bothell naturopathic physician Dr. John Catanzaro is suspended and facing charges for allegedly duping cancer patients into treatment with an unapproved experimental vaccine. Catanzaro is the founder and president of the

Health and Wellness Institute in Bothell. The Board of Naturopathy and the Washington State Department of Health took the action against the license of Catanzaro for failing to appropriate protocols for implementing cancer research on people and obtaining investigational

new drug approval from the Federal Drug Administration. The charges state Catanzaro, “did not disclose the experimental nature of a cancer treatment to his patients, who believed the vaccine administered to them was effective and that the research was approved when it was not.”

The board found Catanzaro to be an “immediate danger” to the public’s health, safety and welfare. They ordered his credential to practice as a physician be suspended and that all credentials, including wall, display and/or wallet be delivered to the department, according to state

documents. The Reporter repeatedly tried to contact Catanzaro for comment but his employees said legal representatives told them not to comment or give out any information. “I was surprised when I heard about these allegations against John,” said Dr.

Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Roe concluded that the guards were legally justified in firing their weapons. “When a rapidly moving car is being driven at someone they can’t be faulted for taking action to protect themselves or each other,” Roe wrote in Dec. 30 letter to detectives who investigated the shooting. The letter was released to The Herald under state public records law. Prosecutors continue to review the case against the [ more SHOOTING page 3 ] Jane Guilitinan, Dean of the School of Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University in Kenmore. “John was a student of mine when he was completing his degree at Bastyr and always did well in the program; there were never any issues or concerns about him.” If the investigation proves true, Guilitinan said she would be very disappointed in Catanzaro.

Kenmore auto repair owner to open Microbrew Shop By Sarah Kehoe skehoe@bothell-reporter.com

Tony Ochsner opened a Microbrew shop next to his auto repair shop, Advanced

European Service, Feb. 1. “We want to be a real quality supply shop for home brewers,” he said. “We hope to have anything available that home brewers

need.” Micro Homebrews will have beer, soda pop and wine home brewing kits, kegs, yeast, wheat and other supplies. Ochsner

hopes to eventually grow to have more homemaking kits, such as a cheese-making kit, in his store. “I’m really excited about this place because people that come in are coming in happy and figuring out something they like to do,” Ochsner said. “I bought my car repair shop 12 years ago, and I gotta say, the joke I tell a lot is that most people that come in there are not happy to be there. I mean, they usually have car problems, right?” The focus of Micro Homebrews is to cater to beginning brewers. “We really want to be helpful to beginners,” Oschner said. “Sometimes they come in and they aren’t sure what questions to ask. It can be intimidating and we really want to

the place, it’s a real community.” Ochsner met Jim Lanning through friends in the brewing community and hired him as manager for the store. “I was bit by the fermenting bug when I got my first homemade kit a long time ago and the rest is history,” Lanning said. Lanning has been a part of several local home brewing clubs, such as the American Homebrewers Association, and has judged at Beer Judge Certification Program competitions. “The beer world sure is fun,” Lanning said, smiling. “The community is all about networking.” Home Micobrew is located at 17511 68th Ave. N.E. in Kenmore.

Many people that like home brewing join clubs and communities, but I really enjoy doing it by myself as a way to escape for awhile.” Ochsner noted brewing has become a popular hobby over the past few years for all kinds of people. “There’s a huge social aspect to it,” he said. “Not only do people brew together or share their beer with others, there are groups popping up all over

Bothell’s State of the City address centers around projects Downtown Bothell’s revitalization, annexation, an economic recovery and a regional fire authority were big topics covered Jan. 15, as Bothell City Manager Bob Stowe gave his annual State of the City address. “Bothell is and always will be an amazing community,” Stowe said. “We have experienced growth and seen our city remain strong despite economic hardships, which has made 2013 a good year for Bothell.” Stowe said the city has hired a new assistant city manager and the city will release that information

“This is clearly not the way we train our medical students at Bastyr to behave,” she said. “It’s true of all patients that you are in a vulnerable place when you come for care, but cancer patients are especially vulnerable because they are afraid and can be susceptible to falling prey to someone that will take advantage of

teen. He was arrested after being treated for the gunshot wound. At the time of the shooting, the boy was a freshman at the Northshore School District’s Secondary Academy for Success, an alternative school. The campus shares a driveway with the district’s maintenance and operations building. The FDA building is a few hundred yards away from the school. A security guard reported seeing the car idling in the parking lot. He approached the car and saw the teen inside. There also were piles of boxes inside. The guard was suspicious of the vehicle and asked the teen to step out of the car. The boy complied but ran after the guard asked him

[ RATES from page 1]

Washington state shares its revenues with cities. “If the fee is adopted, it would mitigate the street fund’s declining fund balance and provide added resources to maintain the city’s transportation infrastructure,” Karlinsey said. Kenmore currently does not impose a franchise fee or utility tax for water and sewer. In

next month as they finalize all the hiring details. Stowe mentioned the city’s efforts in securing Bothell’s future with the biggest ongoing construction project in the city’s history. The relocation of SR 522, or the Crossroads project, will add two blocks to the downtown business district and straighten out the busiest roadway in the city. The project is fully funded and costs $54.8 million. It is projected to be completed this summer. “We started this conversation years ago and it is truly amazing watching that vision come to life,” Stowe said.

The project is part of a downtown revitalization, which began in 2005. Along with the Crossroads project, the city has planned to invest $150 million in the various projects. All of the construction projects together are projected to generate 8,400 jobs. The 2013-2014 budget includes $96.1 million Capital Fund infrastructure investments. The investment will leverage $650 million in private investment. The development is also designed to help with city revenue to fund services. “The most important thing about these projects

is that they are designed to provide a return on investment by stimulating private sector growth, specifically in the downtown area, that generates both one time and ongoing revenue sources for the community,” said Stowe. Along with infrastructure improvements, the city also implemented King County annexations that brought in 6,000 new residents to the Bothell community. “We are eager to show our new residents just how special it is to live in Bothell,” Stowe said. Despite it’s successes in 2013, Bothell is struggling with low revenues like

many other cities in the state.The General Fund, for city services, is $78.2 million. “Now we have to think about what services we can afford to keep in Bothell rather than the services we want for our city,” Stowe said. “Throughout the Great Recession and the economic meltdown that followed, Bothell’s commitment to providing nimble fiscal management remained strong. The city consistently reacted wisely and timely to shifting revenue forecasts and implemented course corrections as needed.” Stowe mentioned the

city’s decision for a Regional Fire Authority. The controversial move could ultimately cut costs and increase services. “A Regional Fire Authority would effectively put more boots on the ground,” Stowe said. “It would also give the city a better chance of keeping up with the costs of emergency services longterm.” A Regional Fire Authority would replace the Bothell Fire Department and potentially merge services with departments in other cities. Northshore, Shoreline, Woodinville and Bothell fire departments would merge together.

them.” Guilitinan pointed out that patients should use this as a lesson and remember to always question any health care team or doctor. “Patients should always question everything, do their own research and be clearly informed,” Guilitinan said. “I think one positive thing that has come from this extremely unfortunate incident

is that the Washington State Department of Health’s regulation and licensing system is working, they are investigating and resolving an issue in a timely matter and at least we can rest easy about that.” The documents also cite Catanzaro for not performing thorough clinical exams or keeping adequate patient records, ultimately calling the treatment a risk for

patients, and his use of it, unethical, lowering the standards of his profession under the guise of hope for cancer patients. According to the Department of Health, Catanzaro has not yet notified his patients but has the responsibility to do so. He has 20 days to request a hearing and contest the charges.

for some identification, Roe wrote. The guard chased after the boy, but he was able to escape. The teen ran back to the car a short time later. Two guards were unable to reach him before he got inside the car. The guards drew their weapons and ordered the teen out of the car. He reportedly started the engine and rapidly backed out of the parking space, toward one of the guards. The guard was struck by the vehicle. The impact tore off the driver’s side mirror. The guard fired at the car, hitting it numerous times. The second guard also fired at the Chrysler. The car continued backward until it struck a parked car. The teen reportedly sped forward toward the first guard, who fired again.

A surveillance camera captured most of the incident. The teen reportedly drove off and hit another vehicle along Highway 527. The license plate number led Bothell police to a home where the teen was found with a gunshot wound to the foot and minor facial wounds. He was taken to an area hospital. “It is not clear whether the young man was trying to hit the guards, or just trying to get away,” Roe wrote. “Whether the juvenile was trying to hit them, or just trying to get away, they would be just as dead if run over.” The teen reportedly didn’t have a driver’s license or his mom’s permission to drive the car. The shooting was investigated by the Snohomish

County Multiple Agency Response Team in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security. SMART is a special cadre of detectives from local police agencies who investigate police shootings and similar incidents. The security officers in this case are contract employees of the Federal Protective Services, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security.

comparison to other cities, Kenmore’s utility tax and franchise fees in total are lower than the average of other cities, even with the new fee taken into account. For example, Bothell’s weighted average utility rate is $5.93, Kirkland’s is $7.88 and Brier’s is $4.65, according to city manager’s 2013-2014 biennial budget report. If adopted, the fee would take effect March

10, 2014 until Dec. 31, 2016. The city and utility district can terminate the agreement with five years written notice at any time, as long as notice is given prior to Jan. 1, 2017. The Feb. 10 meeting is at 7:30 p.m. in Kenmore City Hall, located at located at 18120 68th Ave. NE. The public is invited to attend and provide their opinion on the franchise fee.

How to sell high: avoid these three mistakes when selling your home Bothell/Kenmore - When you decide to sell your home, setting your asking price is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before they’re even given a chance of showing. Your asking price is often your home’s “first impression”, and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it’s imperative that you make a good first impression. This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a homeseller as pricing too low. Taking a look at what homes in your neighborhood have sold for

is only a small part of the process, and on it’s own is not nearly enough to help you make the best decision. A recently study, which compiles 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled “Homesellers: How to Get the Price You Want( and Need)”. This report will help you understand pricing strategy from three different angles. When taken together, this information will help you price your home to not only sell, but sell for the price you want.

I

remember watching football with my grandfather. He would teach me about the game. It brought us together. But growing up a Seattle sports fan has always come with a bit of a price — eternal disappointment. Steve Largent never played in a Super Bowl, Ken Griffey Jr. 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. There are others who have lived here their entire lives, deciding to adopt other teams out of impatience or just frustration. They would make memories with someone else’s team. Sometimes I don’t blame them. But that is not me and it is a not a lot of people around here. Watching the Seahawks win the Super Bowl last Sunday was truly sweet for those of us who never wavered in our dedication to our local teams. Some of us cried, shouted and thought of those sports fans in our lives who didn’t live to see it. Thirty-five years is a long time to wait. I remember my grandfather telling me stories of how Broadway in Seattle was packed with people cheering after the Sonics won the NBA title. I always wondered how that felt. To have that much pride in my team and region that it drove me into the streets. While San Francisco 49er fans have great memories of “The Catch” against the Cowboys and Bronco fans have John Elway flipping into the end zone against the Packers for titles, we had 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 a decade later. For fans my age, who are diehard Seattle sports addicts, it is a commitment like no other. So, why was winning the Super Bowl so important to Seattle sports fans? Because for the rest of our lives, when our team wins 116 games and fails to make the World Series, appears in the Super Bowl and gets the shaft by the refs or loses during the NBA finals to the greatest player to lace up a pair of sneakers, we can feel good that there was one season our team came through and gave us joy on par with some of the greatest feelings in anyone’s lifetime. Why did this win bring in so many who are not sports fans? It is simple, they felt like they were apart of something bigger. Because little old Seattle won the “big one.” It is the first time that Seattle has won on such a large stage. We live in an isolated part of the country and we take pride in Matt Phelps

our area. That sense of community is powerful for everyone. We start to feel disconnected from our neighbors and even our family when we have our face glued to our smart phone all day. We don’t talk to our neighbors when there is nothing that connects us. This win connected our region. It was powerful. It is also something that everyone will remember, sports fan or not. Other cities have those memories that bind their community. It binds relationships as well. I sat with my dad, who is not a big sports fan, cheering and screaming for Percy Harvin to keep running. It was an iconic moment for many. We now have the memory of “The Tip” and the 2014 Lombardi Trophy that brought our larger community together. And no one can move that to Oklahoma City or Los Angeles.

Support the Feb. 11 school measures

all of my fellow citizens to do the same and please don’t forget to vote.

I have lived in the Northshore School District since the very early 1950’s and graduated from Bothell High School in 1963. I have always valued the education I received in this community. We have one of the best school districts in the state because of great teachers and a strong administration. In addition, our three communities have always worked together to ensure that we build schools when we needed them to prevent overcrowding, maintain our facilities to protect our investment, and provide up-to-date technologies to keep our graduates competitive in a fastpaced modern world. Knowing that this area was a wonderful place to raise a family and poised for continuous growth in the future, our forward thinking citizens in the 1950’s and 60’s voted to fund the purchase of lands for future schools. The Northshore community continued that commitment to education as the district grew, never failing a school bond or levy. It is because of that legacy, along with a personal feeling that every student in our community deserves the best education we can provide, that I’m voting to support all three school measures on the ballot Feb. 11. I encourage

Support the school district with your vote

George Selg, Bothell

If you live in the Northshore School District, you and your children have access to a truly superb public education system. In order to preserve and enhance the school district’s ability to provide a first class education to our children, we need to support the district financially. Voting for the three measures, one bond and two levies, is a critical step to promote student learning and to continue to make the Northshore School District one of the best districts in the state. Please vote yes on Propositions 1, 2 and 3 by Feb. 11.

Richard Kobylka, Kirkland

Vote yes on NSD measure I am a parent of two boys at Fernwood Elementary in the north end of Northshore School District. I am also a home owner in a neighborhood adjoining the proposed high school site and despite the challenges that will bring, I am in favor of the upcoming 2014 bond and levies.

My day job as a real estate broker gives me a unique perspective as I work with many buyers comparing housing options within King and Snohomish County. Historically, homes within the Northshore School district have been considered more desirable and have fetched higher prices as a result. This is illustrated perfectly by two new housing developments in north Bothell off 180th, built by the same builder. Although just a block apart, these neighborhoods are serviced by two different school districts, one being Northshore. Based on my conversations with the listing agent and closing data, near identical homes located within the Northshore neighborhood sold for up to $15,000 more than those in the neighborhood serviced by the other. Simply put, today’s buyers see the value of Northshore schools and are willing to invest more. The vote in February has potential to greatly impact our recovering housing market. While I can understand the desire to maintain current tax levels, as a homeowner I have to ask if it’s fiscally responsible to reject a fairly small tax increase and risk a much larger hit to property values not to mention the quality of education our children receive? If Northshore School District cannot effectively meet the demands of the growing stu[ more LETTERS page 5 ]

www.bothell-reporter.com • www.kenmore-reporter.com [ letters from page 3 ] dent population, its overall reputation, and our property values, will most certainly suffer. In order to maintain the high level of excellence the public has come to expect from Northshore, I urge my fellow voters to consider the longlasting, negative ramifications failure would have on our community and stand united in support of the upcoming bond and levies. Finally, as a Fernwood parent for the past six years, I’ve witnessed the growing pains first hand but also the tremendous efforts of staff and teachers to address them with extreme care, always keeping the needs of the students in mind. For that, I’m grateful and want to thank Principal Dickert for his leadership in the face of these challenges. We are fortunate to have such talented educators and I hope we will all be able to breathe easier come February, knowing relief is on its way.

Stacy Rus, Bothell

Solving the problem of overcrowded schools I would like to make a few points about the Northshore School District bond that is on your ballot. Although the bond includes the Woodinville High School Phase III remodel and the general upkeep and security at all school buildings I will focus on the biggest expense and the part I am most knowledgeable about, the new high school and grade reconfiguration. The district has come to the decision to build a new high school and reconfigure grades as a way to deal with the overcrowded schools with a very effective public participation process. They have utilized the volunteer hours of many parents and community members to study the demographic trends and capacity of the schools as members of the Enrollment Demographics Task Force. As a member of the task force for five years now I can tell you that the phrase spoken most often during our grade reconfiguration and new high school discussions was, “What’s best for kids.” There are six parents and community members, serving rotating three-year terms, on the task force; they become quite knowledgeable of all of the data and the district facilities. In August 2012, the task force submitted a recommendation to the school board to build a new high school and reconfigure grades; they also spent many hours participating in retreats and study sessions explaining the reasoning behi nd the recommendation and answering questions from the school board. There is an 86-page summary of this recommendation, titled task force report, on the district website and also two large boxes of reference materials which are stored at the district’s Support Services Office. I would encourage everyone to look at the district website to better understand why this recommendation was made. I would encourage all voters to become informed about the differences between a middle school and a junior high. There are many resources on the district’s Grade Reconfiguration Task Force pages on the district’s website. Moving sixth graders out of the elementary schools and creating middle schools has several academic and social and emotional advantages. The biggest academic advantage that I see is that

our sixth graders will be taught math and science by a teacher that specializes in math and science instead of with a generalist teacher. Although I think our generalist teachers at the elementary level are god-like. I am constantly amazed at what they are able to accomplish. They do have subject areas that they know better than others. Frequently literacy is emphasized at the elementary level and math and science instruction is not. The district motto is “Strengthening Our Community Through Excellence in Education.” Now is not the time to sit back and enjoy our past successes; we must plan for the future. Solving our problem of overcrowded schools by reconfiguring grades and building a new high school will allow the district to continue striving for excellence. Thank you for reading to the end; make sure to send your ballot in by Feb. 11.

Katrina Rose, Kenmore

Vote yes on NSD measures I would like to urge the Northshore School District community to vote for all three ballot measures on Feb. 11. I am a Northshore School District resident and parent of a recent Bothell High School graduate, a current BHS student, and a current Skyview Junior High student. When I moved to the area a little over six years ago, the first criteria for selecting a place to live was the local school district and performance. The NSD has a long and proud history of outstanding performance and it was an easy decision to settle into Bothell. This legacy of high performance is at risk if these three measures are not passed. I would like to make two separate arguments for supporting these three measures on Feb. 11; first, that an inclusionary and comprehensive process, supported and approved by the School District, has brought us to this point, and second, that our continued economic growth is ultimately at stake here. For a number of decades, the NSD has had a number of standing task forces in place to help in its guidance and decision making process. The EDTF, Capital Bond, and Levy Task Forces are made up of professional staff, educators and members of the public. I had the privilege of participating on the Bond Task Force. For well over a year and after spending more than 1200 man-hours of time we were able to bring a recommendation and receive overwhelming approval from the NSD Board for these three ballot measures. As a resident participant on the Task Force, I wasn’t specially selected or asked to be a member. I saw a notice looking for volunteers and I signed up. I was interested in the state of the district and wanted to make a contribution. No one was turned away who wanted to participate. We were given exhaustive amounts of data and information, we toured almost half of the buildings, we learned about building codes, OSHA requirements, and future technologies; all so that we could make the best and most informed recommendation to the NSD Board. And I firmly believe that we have. As I stated earlier, I moved to Bothell to be a resident within the NSD. I am not alone in making this decision. The school district is playing a role in creat-

ing demand for housing and employment in the area. As most of us are well aware, that demand is being met, especially in the north end of the district. It isn’t just the housing that is growing. The Bothell Landing Development, the growth of UW Bothell and Cascadia, and the relocation of businesses to Canyon Park are tremendous economic engines to the area. These large projects bring with them demand and need for small business as support and to service. We are creating a cycle of positive, sustainable growth. However, we must insure that our foundation and infrastructure remain strong. The school district is a critical reason why, and perhaps even a catalyst for this growth.

We cannot abandon the infrastructure now. The wheels have already been set in motion. More and more families with children are coming to the area. They want to come. They are demanding it. We must insure that we have right facilities and support programs in place to continue to educate our children at such a high level. We have a wonderful challenge to address at the ballot on Feb. 11. Vote “YES” three times, for our children’s success Thank you,

What’s the one thing people who have had joint-replacement surgery say? “I wish I’d done it sooner.” That’s because it didn’t take long to get back to doing things they’d given up due to the pain. If you’ve put part of your life on hold, then come to a free surgeon-led seminar at Swedish — where our surgeons do literally thousands of joint-replacement surgeries every year. Swedish surgeons were also the first in this area to perform MAKOplasty®, robotic-assisted surgery for partial knee joint replacement. Register now. Our seminars take just two hours, and the rest of your active life is waiting.

Tear down that seminary

I attended the recent community meeting about Saint Edward’s State Park. I must say it was helpful to get both sides of the story. It was wonderful to see the public come together on this issue. After all was said and done, I came to my own decision about how I’d like to see the situation handled. I personally would like to see the old seminary building demolished and the park continue to be enjoyed as a natural recreation area. Demolishing the building would be a resolution to several issues. My tax dollars would no longer go toward the maintenance and repairs, which are bandaids for a gaping wound of a building that is close to being condemned. Take note, that our tax dollars are also still being used to heat the pool building which essentially is condemned. We won’t have to get into a frenzy every time someone threatens to lease the building. And let’s face it, it will take the likes of Paul Allen to come up with $40 million to fully repair this building. You can call your legislators but I just don’t see people lining up to pay more taxes. Once the building is gone, we’ll have a bit more park space or we can let the creative juices flow for a new sort of structure, one uninhibited by a $40 million repair. I know some will say “but it’s a historical building with a story.” Hey, the trees that you, or the guy before you, cut down to build your house had a story, as did the little lake cottage that got demolished for the new mansion. It’s reality, and in this case, it’s fiscal responsibility.

School levies, new bond cost more than $60 per year A foundation for a strong community and healthy democracy is full disclosure of relevant information. We also need great schools. Unfortunately, the initial community newsletter from Northshore School District on the cost of the levies and bond measures

www.bothell-reporter.com • www.kenmore-reporter.com was incomplete and misleading. The district stated on page two that the property tax rate goes down one penny a year but then on page six they show a table where annual tax increases each year an average of $62.50 over four years. Obviously these messages are in conflict, one says down and the other says up. None of them tell us the cost over the life of the bonds or clarify why impact fees are not being charged to new home buyers. I’ve had many conversations and e-mails with district leaders about the communication of costs and I appreciate their efforts to improve the information at the website. They have added many things to help, yet there are three things that are still unclear to most voters: • The cost of a yes vote vs. a no vote on the two levies is over $1,000 per year in taxes for a $400,000 home owner. Simply take the rate from Prop 1 of $2.42 per $1,000 of assessed value plus the rate of 40 cents for Prop 3 for a total new rate of $2.82 per $1,000. $2.82 X 400 = $1,128 for 2014. A no vote avoids this tax – though it would be a drastic cut in operations. The amount in prior years was $60 or so less – but the vote is whether to pay an amount over $1,000 per year during the next four years. • The cost of the new bond is estimated at $257.38 per year for 17 years for the $400,000 homeowner, based on the August, 13, 2013 Capital Projects Memo. I just found this memo on Jan. 31, and had repeatedly asked the district to share their estimate online, which they had not done as of Feb. 3. It is very frustrating that the leaders of the district did not share this information from the outset. Thus, the bond alone costs more than $60 a year, and this cost will continue for 17 or so years. • There is a large amount of classroom “surplus capacity” in various parts of the district, according to page 18 of 2013 Capital Facilities Plan. In 2013 there is 29 percent surplus in the district as a whole and in 2019 it would be 25 percent even without a new high school. The excess capacity means the district cannot charge impact fees, whereby the new homeowners would more equitably pay for new buildings. From a finance perspective, it does not make sense to build something new when there is existing capacity and that capacity keeps us from equitable financing. Based on what I’ve learned, I voted to reject the bond, Proposition No. 2, but I voted yes on the two levies. Hopefully you were fully informed when you voted.

Kenmore City Council adopts ordinance modifying load limits on Sammamish Bridge Kenmore City Council adopted an ordinance to modify the load limits on the West Sammamish River Bridge at its Jan. 27 meeting. The suggested weight limits set by Kenmore city staff after several surveys are 16 tons for three-axle vehicles, type 3; 25 tons for five-axle vehicles, type 3S2; and 27 tons for six-axle vehicles, type 3-3. “The West Sammamish River Bridge is a local and regionally significant structure — it connects our community,” said Kris Overleese, Engineering and Environmental Services Director at the City of Kenmore. “The bridge will have to be rehabilitated or replaced in the near future and we will begin the pursuit of funding this year.” Kenmore’s 68th Ave. crossing of the Sammamish River is two bridges. The bridge carrying southbound traffic is known as the West Sammamish River Bridge. This bridge was constructed in 1938 and crosses the Sammamish River on 68th Ave. N.E., which is .2 miles south of SR 522. It carries southbound traffic only and is located within the city of Kenmore. Over 13,000 vehicles a day (week day traffic) use this bridge. The adjacent northbound, East Sammamish River Bridge was built in the 1970s and carries over 12,000 vehicles per day. City officials say the number of vehicles crossing the bridge every day are greater than the bridge was designed for and the bridge is showing signs of deterioration such as cracking, leaching and spalling. “Over 13,000 vehicles use this bridge a day which is more than half of Kenmore’s population,” Overleese said. “The proposed weight restriction will prevent further over-stresses on the bridge which will help protect it while the city evaluates whether the bridge should be either rehabilitated or replaced in the near future.” In 2012, the city conducted a routine inspection of the West Sammamish River Bridge and identified additional cracking in the bridge concrete beams and potential soil erosion around two of its piers in the river. As a result, the city embarked upon a more regular

supported on firm soil at the bottom of the piers/pilings for the normal vertical loading. However, there is loose soil material surrounding the pier’s pilings in the river which is not adequate against major earthquake events. “Safety is our number one priority and if a bridge is found to be unsafe, it’s closed. If a bridge can only carry certain loads, it’s restricted,” wrote a city spokesperson in a press release. Even though seismic upgrades were performed on the bridge in the 1990s, the current design is significantly higher than that of the 1990’s and a major earthquake could damage the bridge. “If an earthquake occurs, inspecting this bridge will be a top priority,” Overleese said. Kenmore does not have another public crossing of the Sammamish River within the city. Kenmore staff is coordinating with the city of Bothell to determine the best southbound Sammamish River crossing. The recommended detour will be made available in the near future. The city is currently performing a rehabilitation

versus replacement study to determine the most feasible alternative for the bridge and this study will be completed this spring. Officials will begin applying for either rehabilitation or replacement funding this year. “It is reasonable to expect construction to begin in the next 3-5 years and the weight restriction will be in place until then,” Overleese said. “Increased monitoring frequency of the bridge will continue as well. We would like to stress that this structure is of regional significance and Kenmore alone cannot fund its replacement which is expected to be in excess of $10 Million.”

monitoring plan, installing survey points on the bridge and surveying the bridge to determine if it has a settlement problem. They hired a new bridge engineering consultant in 2013. Jacobs Engineering evaluated soil loss around the piers in the river, conducting geotechnical analysis and load rating analysis. The company recommended that the bridge be restricted for the axles/ weights outlined in the fact sheet. They do not recommend any emergency scour repair and believe soil loss around the piers is a result of dredging in the 1960s, said Overleese. “Jacobs highlighted that the bridge is aged, is carrying more and heavier vehicles than designed for, has a heavier dead load on it from asphalt overlay and pedestrian protection barrier installed in the 1990s,” Overleese said. “In summary, it’s an old structure nearing the end of its design life and is experiencing more stress than it was designed for.” Although deterioration is present, a structurally deficient bridge is safe.

A long-term plan for toll lanes on I-405 has been sent to state lawmakers. The I-405/SR 167 Corridor Funding and Phasing Report was submitted by the state Department of Transportation to the Legislature and the governor on Jan. 17. The report outlines a two-phase approach for creating a toll-lane system from Lynnwood to Renton on I-405, connecting to existing toll lanes on Highway 167 in south King County. The state is spending $334 million to convert existing carpool lanes into toll lanes, or “HOT” lanes, on I-405 from Lynnwood to Bellevue. Work on paving, striping and barriers for the project has begun. The lanes are expected to be ready for use as toll lanes in 2015. The report recommends allowing two-person carpools to ride for free during off-peak hours and carpools of three or more people to ride for free at all times. Otherwise, drivers using the carpool lane would be charged an electronic toll. Rates have not been set. They will depend partly on how far a driver will travel. The toll will automatically increase and decrease based on how many people are using the lanes. The toll automatically increases when traffic in the express toll lanes is heavier and decreases when traffic is lighter. As drivers approach the entry point to the express toll lanes, they will see a

sign listing up to three destinations. The toll for each destination at the time is the price of that trip. The lanes would be divided into three areas — Lynnwood-Bellevue, Bellevue-Renton and RentonPacific. One study assumed a minimum toll of 50 cents per area to start, increasing to 75 cents in 2018. Buses and registered vanpools will travel toll-free in the lanes. The second phase would require a new lane to be built from Bellevue to Renton and ramps constructed to connect the lane to existing carpool-toll lanes on Highway 167. That project, expected to cost more than $1.1 billion, has not been funded. The new report recommends using $960 million from the gas tax and collecting the remaining $215 million through tolls to cover the cost. The report is unclear on whether an increase in the per-gallon gas tax would be required to raise the money. The earliest this phase could open is 2020, according to the report. The report was developed by the state with input from an advisory group of elected officials representing communities along the I-405-Highway 167 corridor. The state held four meetings with this advisory group last year. The new report is available at tinyurl.com/WSDOT405167.

BRIEF Kenmore Air has service to Nanaimo, BC Kenmore Air announced the launch of new nonstop service between Seattle and Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver Island beginning March 3. Twice-daily service will be operated us-

ing the airline’s all-weather Caravan and Chieftain wheeled aircraft. “We are very proud to announce this new route that will bring trans-border scheduled air service to Nanaimo,” said Todd Banks, President and General Manager of Kenmore Air. “We will operate out of Seattle’s convenient Boeing Field and offer complimentary ground shuttle service from there to Sea-Tac International Airport.” “Expanding our pres-

ence on Vancouver Island with regularly scheduled year-round service has been a long-term goal of Kenmore Air,” said Banks. “This new route to Nanaimo allows us to better serve the region.” Located on the east coast of south-central Vancouver Island, Nanaimo is a classic west coast community of approximately 80,000 residents located 70 miles north of Victoria. In addition to boasting one of the longest shorelines

in Canada, Nanaimo has a beautiful forested mountain backdrop just outside downtown. The city’s central location also makes it an ideal gateway to explore the rest of Vancouver Island, including Mount Washington and the wild Pacific Ocean towns and beaches of Tofino and Ucluelet on the west side of the island, just about a three-hour scenic drive from Nanaimo. “We believe Seattle residents and visitors to the

Northwest will be excited by this new service,” adds Mike Hooper, President and CEO of the Nanaimo Airport Commission. “In about an hour passengers can be in Nanaimo for a day of business or use Nanaimo as a jumping off point to Central Vancouver Island.” Although the new service will be ideal for leisure travelers, it is expected many business travelers will also take advantage of the new service as it pro-

vides fast and easy accessibility to make day trips between the two cities. “We also offer an option for our frequent travelers called QuickTix,” explains Banks. “Customers can pre-purchase 10 fully transferable one-way tickets for only $1,536, including taxes until March 31, 2014. After the introductory period, the price for QuickTix moves to $1,728, including taxes, for 10 one-way tickets.”

Parents will find it more difficult to feel appreciative of their children if they obsess on what is done wrong or get stuck in worry over grades, eating right and behaving right. In the moments when you want to tell your child what to do or make a critical remark, stop yourself. Make a conscious effort to think about the things your child is doing well or what you are thankful Patti Skelton-McGougan

kids learn to be appreciative by watching others, especially their parents. As parents, it’s easy to get caught in the day-to-day temper tantrums, arguments and homework struggles, and forget the things you really appreciate about your child or teen. Likewise, kids feel lower self-worth when they are not valued, or frequently reminded of what they need to do, or what they aren’t doing.

PARENT TALK

M

erriam-Webster defines appreciation as, “To understand the worth or importance of something or someone; to admire and value, or be grateful for.” So, have you appreciated a child lately? Kids of all ages enjoy compliments, even sometimes difficult teenagers. And kids especially appreciate it when you sing their praises to others. I have heard parents complain often of ungrateful kids, and I have witnessed kids be ungrateful. The truth is that

for about them and how you can express it. As an example: your child spills her snack in the living room where she isn’t supposed to be eating, and you come upon her cleaning up the mess. You have a choice to be angry about breaking the rules, or thankful she is trying to clean it up, or maybe pleased that she got her own snack, or chose something healthy. That doesn’t mean you have to allow your child to break the rule, but you can respond this way, “Thank you for cleaning up your spill, I really appreciate it and that you managed to get your own snack today. I would also really appreciate it if we can keep snacks in the kitchen from now on.”

Instead of looking for evidence to justify being angry and critical, look for what can be appreciated in a situation. Here are more examples. Your teen is messy. Might he also be creative or spontaneous, and can you appreciate that? “Jon, I so appreciate how imaginative you are, that’s a great skateboard ramp you built. Could you please put the tools away when you are done with the project?” A young child’s constant need for attention can wear on a parent, but can you appreciate her lovingness? When a child won’t stop talking, perhaps you can appreciate honesty, assertiveness or how he expresses himself. And when a teen

Make a game out of being grateful A great way to build appreciation in a family is to take time to mention what you appreciate about each other, and what you are thankful for. You can do this in the car on the way to school or practice, even around the breakfast or dinner table. Older kids can be challenged to add why they are grateful. When parents are intentional about appreciating their children, they may begin to see their family in a whole new light – one where peace replaces worry, and struggles become opportunities to bond with your child. If you are not intentional, the moments of frustration will triumph over the good times and will erode at your child’s self-esteem and the relationship between you. Remember that it takes many compliments to overcome even one critical comment.

is lagging on homework or college applications, perhaps you can appreciate a clean room or extracurricular activities, like holding down a job. To maximize the ability to appreciate your children, make sure you have downtime. If that’s not happening, chances are you may feel tired, irritable and overwhelmed – making it much harder to stop and appreciate any situation. So don’t feel guilty about taking a break – a hot bath, walk around the neighborhood or even a night out.

Their daughter is still very young but learning to share with others, and to be aware of the needs of others. So - if you want to really give a lasting gift to your children – give them the gift of exposure to volunteering. If you choose to do this, closely evaluate the volunteer opportunity for worthiness, safety and for a continuation of the message you are giving – seeing and acting upon the needs of others, without a return to yourself. Now this is an exciting gift, expect it to go a long way.

hat kinds of positive messaging can we give our children? Ones that they can understand, personalize and carry forward? Volunteering is a powerful message, one they can carry throughout their lives and one that will create a caring, productive citizen. I’ve taken kids with me to the food bank to help not only with sorting and distributing food to needy families but also sorting and distributing toys to needy children. Children have assisted me during story time when I am reading stories and doing crafts with kindergartners and first graders. Kids have assisted in planting and harvesting in my vegetable gardens, the output of which partially goes to a food bank. I see kids assisting often at benefit events by serving the needs of others. I see kids canvassing neighborhoods for donations to worthy causes. I see kids in their schools promoting activities that benefit those in need. Teaching our children to care about others is a gift to all of us. Often we see evidence of this quality and can’t remember planting the seed early in life.

Rabbit adoption center opens in Kenmore By Sarah Kehoe skehoe@bothell-reporter.com

Sandi Ackerman was born an animal lover but rabbits became her favorite when she held one for the first time at a pet store about 20 years ago. “I had gone to the shelter to look for a cat and saw a rabbit there,” Ackerman said. “I was struck by what smart, clever creatures they were.” Ackerman started an animal adoption and supply store shortly after that day called Rabbit Meadows, specializing in rabbits, guinea pigs and small rodents. She moved the store from its Lake City location to Kenmore and held a grand opening celebration at the end of December. “We’ve had so many local people come into

the store,” Ackerman said. “I would guess several hundred have come here during the past few days and we have two rabbits that have been adopted.” Ackerman gets her animals from various animal shelters across the state including the Everett Animal Shelter, Seattle Animal Shelter and a humane society in Bellingham. “We only get our pets from places that euthanize their animals if they have to,” Ackerman said. “I find that the shelters really hope it never comes to that and are glad to give their animals to me.” Ackerman is picky about who gets to adopt her animals. “My commitment is to the animals, I want them to be safe,” she said. “They’ve already been

passed around by the time they get to me and I want them to go into a loving, permanent home.” Ackerman screens each person wanting to adopt by checking to ensure they are home owners. She also requires each hopeful adoptee to buy the right equipment prior to taking an animal home. If a parent is buying the animal for their child, Ackerman wants to the child to be at least 6 or 7 years old. “Sometimes people think a great starter pet for a child is a guinea pig or a hamster, but that is really a bad option for a young child because those animals tend to be really squirmy and quick runners,” she said. “I like to sit with each person coming in and see what they’re looking for and find them

The business offers kids a chance to learn how to brush and pet some of the rabbits and guinea pigs. “It’s really important to me that the people adopting these animals know how to care for them,” she said. Northshore residents can find out if they would like to volunteer to help these special critters while they wait for their forever home or adopt one.

Bothell man tries to board school bus without pants Oregon police arrested a Bothell man after he reportedly tried to board a school bus while pantless. On Jan 14, police were told that a man had stopped his car in front of a school bus on northbound Interstate 5 near Creswell, Ore. Later reports said the man looked as if he ran his car into the bus, which had one adult female driver in it but no kids.

He took off his pants and tried to get on the bus. Oregon state troopers, deputies and others responded. A trooper spotted his car going north. It had two flat tires. The trooper tried to stop the car, but the driver tried to get away. He went through a fence and into a pond. His car was submerged up to the windows. The driver got out and was arrested. The Associated Press says the driver is a 38-year-old Bothell man and faces such charges as drunken driving, hit and run and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Brewery says Texas A&M issues warning over beer name By Sarah Kehoe skehoe@bothell-reporter.com

Foggy Noggin Brewing changed the name of their “12th Man Skittles IPA” special batch of beer after they said they received a cease-and-desist order from Texas A&M University. The new name: Cease & Desist IPA. The brewery released it for a tasting on Feb. 1 at Foggy Noggin’s tasting room. “We really want to keep things light and not let this stop us from having a blast watching the Superbowl,” said Jim Jamison, manager of Foggy Noggin prior to the tasting.

The brewery announced two weeks ago that they would release a small batch as a salute to the Seattle Seahawks, who played against the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. On Jan. 28, the brewery announced that they had received a trademark infringement letter from Texas A&M. “I was blown away that this university even heard about us using that name for our beer,” Jamison said. “I mean, the beer we made will only serve around 55 people, it’s a small keg we planned on filling.” Texas A&M sued the Seahawks for using “12th man” in February 2006.

Seahawks ended up settling out of court with the Seahawks agreeing to pay a licensing fee and acknowledging Texas A&M’s ownership rights of the trademarked phrase. The beer was meant to be a special release only available during the Superbowl game. Ingredients for the beer included Maris Otter malt, Skittles and Columbus Centennial hops. “We request that everyone stop talking, blogging and posting anything that associates with the original name of the beer. Foggy Noggin Brewing apologizes for any perceived infringement on any trademarks, as we were only trying to have fun as the Seattle Seahawks get ready to play in the Super Bowl,” Jamison wrote an email to the public and to Texas A&M representatives. “After the university received the email, the attorneys said they’d drop it,” Jamison said. Foggy Noggin isn’t the only brewery to capitalize on the popularity of the 12th Man name - or get into trouble with Texas A&M over it. Dick’s Brewing Co. in Centralia released its 12

Man Pale Ale in December and the beer has quickly become one of its best sellers, according to The Olympian newspaper. But the beer was in the works for two years, because of legal wrangling with the university. Dick’s Brewing named their beer 12 Man, as opposed to 12th Man, the trademarked phrase owned by Texas A&M. Origins of the term “12th man” aren’t concrete to one company or entity, but the traditions in Seattle and College Station where Texas A&M is located date back decades. In 1984, the Seahawks retired the number 12 to honor fans for making their stadium one of the noisiest. Texas A&M traces their use to 1922, when an injury-plagued roster led the team to pull E. King Gill from the stands and suited him up to play. Gill never took to the field, but the legend strengthened campus-wide commitment to support the team. The words “Home of 12th Man” adorn the stadium and the entire school is considered the 12th Man.

Dec. 10. “Bothell is fortunate to have undeveloped forest in the midst of a rapidly growing area,” said Bothell Mayor Mark Lamb. “Thanks to the hard work of City staff and members of the community, additional acres of North Creek Forest will be protected now and for future generations.” Funding to purchase the property came through a grant from King County Conservation Futures funds and through the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office which administered the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund grant program. The City worked in collaboration with two community groups, the Friends of the North Creek Forest and Help Our Woods, to apply for grant funding. The entire North Creek Forest is 64 acres in size, consists of mature coniferous forest with large Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock and Cedar trees, and is home to a wide array of plants and animals, including Pileated Woodpecker and Band-tailed Pigeon. The forest is an integral part of the North Creek watershed, which filters water flowing into North Creek, an active salmon stream.

Firewood, Fuel & Stoves

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension.
