SERVING TOGETHER Sammamish couple joins Peace Corps

BY KELLY MONTGOMERY ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

Glenn and Ronda Olson have always been drawn to the idea of promoting and expressing peace. But unlike most Peace Corps participants, the Sammamish couple waited many years to fill their volunteering void. “The seeds were planted when I was in high school,” Ronda said. “One of the seminars offered during career day was on the Peace Corps. What always stayed with me was that there is a great big world out there and I just may be able to do something.” Glenn, 64, and Ronda, 63, aren’t new to volunteering. Glenn built the Little League baseball field that sits between Margaret Mead Elementary School and East Sammamish Park, and Ronda has worked with local PTAs, the Boys and Girls Club and co-founded the Plateau Youth Action Committee in 1992. However, the Peace Corps is their first time contributing overseas. And it only took 40-something years to make it a reality. “Totally over simplifying, the process went something like this:

We started reading and talking about it for about five years and then I decided it was time for a change, and Ronda agreed.” Ronda said she wasn’t set on leaving home. However, what she did know is that she didn’t want to be away from Glenn for two

and a half years and she wasn’t getting any younger. “I felt if I didn’t apply, then I probably would never do so,” she said. “So I followed recommendations, took classes in Spanish through Bellevue College, and tutored a wonderful young woman from Columbia in English.” Then, in June 2012, Glenn and Ronda left for the adventure of a lifetime. They are currently serving in Cimislia, Moldova, and are in the

23rd month of their 27-month service agreement. Glenn is in the Small Entrepreneur Development department, so his primary responsibility is consulting the Strategic Planning Department and their various projects. He also translates for the communications department, works on a recycling and solid waste information grant campaign, helps with a construction grant project for schools, and works to educate and promote health issues within the area through a NGO called ‘Youth for Youth’.

The fervor over the Klahanie Potential Annexation Area still has not calmed down, based on the public input at Tuesday’s Land and Shore committee meeting at Issaquah City Hall. And now, there are even more land use issues for the committee to review and bring to the full council, including a thorough look at the city’s comprehensive plan, required every seven years. However, almost all of the public comment turned back to Klahanie and the failed Feb. 11 annexation vote. Dave Guzzetti, who lives in the Hunter’s Ridge neighborhood of Klahanie, asked the committee to release the PAA because they are surrounded by Sammamish and want to move on. Kirstin O’Malley, who is active with the grassroots group Klahanie Choice, said unlike Issaquah, Sammamish would not need a super majority in a vote to annex the PAA. “We’re tired of the voting,” O’Malley said. “We’re ready to move on. If you guys start carving up the PAA it may not look as attractive to them (Sammamish).” O’Malley was referring to the suggestion by supporters of the Issaquah annexation to slice off the southern portion SEE COMP PLAN, 19

Concerns raised over plan for housing near creek Water can be sneaky, as anyone who has ever had a leak in their home knows. Concerned residents filled a conference room March 4 for a Shoreline public meeting about the proposed Seventh and Gilman project, the first major project to be proposed under the new Central Issaquah Plan. Lennar Multifamily Communities, the nation's third largest home builder, wants to build three buildings with a total of 343

apartments, 460 parking spaces, outdoor recreational spaces and a community garden adjacent to Issaquah Creek. The property at Seventh Avenue and Gilman Boulevard in Issaquah, is still owned by Gilman Square LLC. It is in the 100-year flood zone, but it has flooded more often than that. Lennar Development Director Tom Bartholomew conceded it's a "tricky site," but the company is confident it can develop it responsibly. The active word for those at the meeting

was "skeptical." There have been four floods since 1990, with water spilling onto the parcel and flooding businesses there and on Gilman Boulevard more than once. The last flood was in 2009. Kerry Ritland, surface water manager with the city, said the floods have all been very similar, with the same depth, with water spilling onto Seventh Avenue then down Gilman Boulevard. Bartholomew said the buildings and entrances to the underground garages are above the highest flood level of 67-feet. But many old-time residents don't think Lennar's plans take into account the severity of the flooding that can occur, and the fact that the property is basically in a hole. According to Chuck Olson, a long-time Issaquah resident, Lakeside Industries once used the property as a dump site. He said when he was a kid it was a swamp where he used to hunt ducks. Ritland said the key is to replicate flood paths with swales, marshy depression between ridges. Lennar is planning for a long swale throughout the parcel, which it says will accommodate any flood waters. Bartholomew said the frequency of flooding now is eight years, but with their plan it would be 14 years. Also, a berm will be raised along the creek, and the plan is to plant natural vegetation and walking paths. The model also takes ground saturation into account, he said. Gary Folkman, who has his dental practice nearby, said during a flood the water always goes over to Seventh Avenue, and that it would still flood that area. And as far as planting native vegetation by the creek, Folkman said he's spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to make his property suitable for the city, including native vegetation, which all washed downstream and into Lake Sammamish in the last flood, and now he just fights off noxious weeds. Many were concerned about the under-

ground parking. Even though the entrances would be above flood level, what if water did get into the garages potentially trapping residents? Business owner Connie Marsh suggested raising the buildings up on pilings so water could flow under the garages, but the developer said the math proves that its plan is safe. Folkman said he raised his building onto pilings. "Water does some incredible things," Folkman said. The process for Lennar still includes an environmental review, SEPA review, a site development permit, a flood hazard permit and building permits. An old dry cleaning business that once was on Seventh Avenue left Trichloroethylene, a chemical compound used in industrial solvents, in the ground, so that will have to be remediated. "The flooding is a big issue, (on this parcel) obviously," Ritland said. Christopher Wright, project oversight manager for Issaquah, said the city is about halfway through the site development permit, and the SEPA study is underway. Wright said the city is confident Lennar is meeting the flooding concerns. There will be more pubic meetings as the project progresses. Linda Ball: 425-391-0363; lball@issaquahreporter.com

Zmuda sues EC, Seattle Archdiocese

Zmuda’s lawsuit

BY LINDA BALL ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

Former Eastside Catholic vice principal, Mark Zmuda, who was fired from the school after it discovered he had married his same-sex partner in the summer of 2013, is suing the Archdiocese of Seattle and Eastside Catholic School. Zmuda held a press conference Friday, March 7, with his attorney, Richard Friedman. Zmuda, looking a bit nervous, read a prepared statement. "I am a lifelong Catholic. I choose to believe that Jesus Christ is my savior and I pray everyday. I am a gay man. I did not choose to be gay. I do not see any inconsistency between the teachings of Jesus and being gay. When I moved from Florida to Seattle to take the job at Eastside Catholic High School, I researched the school. On its website it said it did not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, marital status or sexual orientation." Zmuda went on to say that his job was satisfying and rewarding, and there was no greater calling for him than the schooling of youth. He also said he believes in marriage, and when Washington state law allowed him to marry his long-time partner, Dana Jergens, he was grateful for the opportunity to make such a solemn commitment. "I was asked by the school to break my wedding vows to keep my job," he said. "I was told I could either divorce or be fired. How could anyone ask anyone else to make that choice? I was fired." He said he understood that homosexuality is hard for some people to accept. "But an employer should not be allowed to say that it doesn't discriminate and claim it is proud about saying that, and then discriminate anyway," he said. Friedman said the Archdiocese of Seattle is a defendant in addition to Eastside Catholic because there was pressure put on the school by the Archdiocese to fire Zmuda. He said they hope to depose Archbishop Peter Sartain. "The heart of the case is a standard employment issue," Friedman said. "The law is clear that the representation was that they

Zmuda’s suit contains four counts. Count I, is for tortious interference with business expectancy, in which it states that the archdiocese does not sponsor or manage Eastside Catholic, nor is the school accredited by the archdiocese. But when it discovered that Zmuda was married it took intentional steps to cause his termination at Eastside Catholic. Count II claims a violation of Washington’s law against discrimination, which states that Zmuda’s job duties at ECS were no different from the job duties of a vice principal at a public school or non-religious private school; discrimination in employment on the basis of marital status is prohibited under state law; and ECS’s unlawful discrimination directly and proximately caused economic and emotional harm and damages to Zmuda, to be proven at trial. Count III deals with a breach of implied contract, which states that when Zmuda was hired, the school’s handbook stated that EC does not discriminate on the basis of any status or condition which is protected by an applicable law. Also, ECS’s website stated that it would not discriminate on the basis of an employee or applicant’s race, religion, creed, color, sex, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, or any other status or condition protected by local, state or federal law. The school removed this statement from its website shortly after Zmuda’s termination Dec. 20, 2013. Count III also says that ECS’s termination of Zmuda was based solely on his decision to marry. The final count claims a violation of the consumer protection act, which states that prospective and current employees considering employment at ECS were aware of the school’s nondiscriminatory stance, and likewise parents who had chosen to send their kids to ECS were deceived by ECS’s statements.

Ronda is helping to develop a sustainable health education program. She mentors Moldovan teachers and administrators so they can increase their knowledge of age-appropriate formal and informal health education activities and then integrate that knowledge into the classroom, empowering students to make healthy decisions. Ronda also does some English tutoring. “Serving has given me the opportunity to slow down, live a simpler lifestyle, and make do,” Ronda said. “It’s given me the opportunity to look at the world through a different set

of eyes and be more appreciative of what we have in the U.S., as well as think about what I will do differently when we return.” For Glenn, the greatest benefit to serving is the complete integration into the communities where they work. “We get to share our work and life experiences to help others…this is the ultimate culture exchange,” he said. But the experience would be completely different without Ronda, he said. “Serving with my wife has been a totally awesome experience. Every day we are able to share the roller coaster ride of Peace Corps experiences, so our frustrations are articulated and our successes are celebrated.” Glenn and Ronda will have been married for 40 years come August, and Glenn said

that their Peace Corps service has inspired their growth both as individuals and as a couple. During Peace Corps training, the couple was separated due to specific programming, so they were an hour and a half away from each other and only got to see each other for a total of three nights during a 10-week period. “We knew this would be the situation before we arrived and Ronda predicted it would be like dating again,” Glenn said. “She was spot on. Our ‘dating’ turned into a new love story – with each other, and the Peace Corps.” Ronda said the experience is a million times easier with Glenn next to her. “I get to share this experience with my husband and best friend,” she said. “And for the rest of our lies, it is another story and another experience that binds us.” And while the couple loves what they’re doing in Moldova, they are eager and excited to be home in a couple of months, reuniting with family and enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Ronda said that have two grandsons that have been born while they’ve been away. “It will take time to adjust,” she said. “The normal and familiar may not seem so much so. In time it will become more so, I’m certain. I’m also certain that this experience will never be far from my thoughts. I’ll have two countries I can call home.”

TOWN HALLS

Meetings provide valuable feedback to legislators

O

n Feb. 22, my seatmates and I hosted three in-person town hall meetings around the 5th District. The turnout was great and the questions and feedback was invaluable. We just finished the 2014 legislative session where we debated new and higher gas taxes and transportation fees to fund projects statewide. What I heard from constituents is they understand the need to invest in critical road and transit systems, but are skeptical that their money would be spent wisely. The 520 Bridge and Seattle Tunnel projects have eroded confidence that will need to be rebuilt before they accept new and higher transportation taxes. We also had questions about K-12 education funding and reform. Will our investments improve student out comes Jay Rodne and support teachers? How best can we measure teacher performance to ensure that there is a qualified teacher in every classroom? We will continue to try to reach consensus on these issues during the final days of the 2014 legislative session. With the state Supreme Court’s ruling in the McCleary case, the Legislature last year stepped up in a bipartisan fashion to fund K-12 education first. We invested an additional $1 billion directly into our schools. We funded full-day kindergarten; K-1 class size reduction; pupil transportation; and materials, supplies and operating costs. We also added dollars to the Learning Assistance Program, or LAP, among other critical programs that make a difference in the classroom. Finally, we heard loud and clear that government needs to be held accountable, whether it is budgeting responsibly or living up to our state’s constitution to ensure K-12 education is treated as the “paramount duty” of the state. Residents want to ensure every dollar they send us is used wisely and in ways that make a difference in their communities. I welcome any additional feedback constituents have for me. Rep. Jay Rodne, R-Snoqualmie, represents the 5th Legislative District, which includes Issaquah, Fall City, Snoqualmie and North Bend.

Metro tax hike needs greater equity

T

houghtful citizens in east-andsouth King County must vote “no” on yet-another-unfair Metro Transit tax-hike – inequitable both for present-and-potential transit users and also for taxpayers countywide – to remind officials elected here to represent their constituents far more faithfully. East-and-south county taxpayers underwrite 35 percent and-30 percent of Metro’s excessive costs, but receive, respectively, only 17 percent and 20 percent of that Will Knedlik agency’s essential transportation. Immense revenues are diverted to subsidize Seattle, thereby leaving insufficient funds to close gaping holes in important transit routes, including pivotal connections long missing between family-wage employment in east county and less-expensive housing in south county. Suburban-and-rural taxpayers provide almost exactly two-thirds of Metro’s resources, despite receiving just over one-third of bus service. This massive transit-and-taxation inequal-

ity is accelerating, presently, as routes outside Seattle are cut repeatedly to safeguard transit there. The proposed tax-hike would not simply fail to resolve this enormous unfairness but, if enacted, would actually worsen gross inequities between transit unavailability already shorting two-thirds of county residents and thereby-still-greater tax injustice. At Eastside Transportation Partnership and South County Area Transportation Board meetings, local officials complain regularly that eastand-south county residents pay too much for transit services and receive too few. Yet, these officeholders fail repeatedly, nonetheless, to represent their constituents as forcefully as those elected in Seattle, leaving suburbanand-rural taxpayers contributing ever-more-transit taxes, but receiving proportionally less-and-less public transport. As the King County Council was specifically informed with great respect – but with like clarity – at the public hearing required for another Metro tax-hike on Feb. 24: when two-thirds of county residents are being fleeced to featherbed transit overwhelmingly designed to favor the other one-third, intentionally, result-

?

Question of the week:

“ Do you support a $15/hour minimum wage?”

ing inequalities yield far-less-constructive discussions than if council members would responsibly focus on Metro’s unsustainable operating cost of $155.38 per hour (among the very highest, nationwide, according to National Transit Database records). Nearly as regrettable as this tax-hike proposal’s unfairness to two-thirds of county residents – as transit users and as taxpayers – is a colossal missed opportunity to earn citizen trust through balloting that, instead, squanders the best prospect in decades to add both transit-finance stability for everyone reliant thereon and also transit-service equity countywide, and thereby wastes Dow Constantine’s important low-income-fare initiative to rectify growing counter-productivity for transit-dependent residents from endless bus-fare increases. Solutions are possible but, sadly, thinking citizens must first say “no” on April 22 to Proposition 1, including Seattleites who recognize gross tax injustice as unsustainable at least since mid-1776. Will Knedlik is the spokesperson for the official committee appointed by the King County Council to draft the Voters’ Pamphlet Opposition Statement.

City examines lake and trail parking issues BY KELLY MONTGOMERY ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

Since the Sammamish Landing opened in the fall of 2011, community members and city officials have noticed sizable parking concerns along the East Lake Sammamish Parkway. Trail and lake users squeeze their vehicles onto the side of the road, creating issues for pedestrians, other drivers and bicyclists. In December, the council directed staff to work with the city of Redmond on 187th Street parking and take another look at maximizing parking along the Eastlake Sammamish Parkway. Since then, city officials have spoken with Redmond officials and discovered that on-street parking is not one of Redmond’s top priorities as far as future projects. In fact, Redmond would like to see more bike lanes. Sammamish said that Redmond is unwilling to participate in the widening of the roadway, and therefore the project would be extremely expensive. Sammamish hopes to design a parking lot, pedestrian crossing and ADA ramp across

“Mark didn’t want to walk away from this issue, but he didn’t pursue it either,” Friedman said. “He’s confronting it head on.” Zmuda said he has not been able to find a new job, and he is drawing unemployment. He said it’s also been incredibly challenging for a couple in its first year of marriage, but he is fully supported by Jergens. “I’m considered a failure for something I did a pretty darn good job at,” Zmuda said.

the street from the Sammamish Landing to assist with parking concerns. As of now, the lot would accommodate approximately 35 cars and have accessible restrooms, a ramp and stairs leading down to the Landing. Council member Kathy Huckabay noted the parking lot that already exists for trail and landing use is on the lake side of the street and is never full. “The trail access is there already, so we will see what we can do to add more parking,” City Manager Ben Yazici said. Sammamish council members made it clear that their biggest concern is safety. Council member Bob Keller asked how Landing users would get from the parking lot to the other side of the street. “This issue was not on the table until we realized what a safety issue it is,” he said. “I hope we’re looking at all the options that are available there.” Yazici said that the current scope has been design, but city engineers can take a look at safety. City officials will come back to the council as soon as possible, sharing a design for the parking lot, cost estimates, and requesting permission to begin construction. In a letter to parents from acting board co-chairs Tom Padilla and Brad Bastian, they said “in response to Mr. Zmuda’s lawsuit, our attorneys will immediately file a motion to dismiss the complaint. The board is the point of contact for the legal team that represents the school and the insurance company who provides the coverage. As you would expect in a situation such as this, neither the school nor the board are in a position to share details of this pending litigation at this time.” Friedman said it could be one-and-onehalf to two years before the case goes to trial, if there is no settlement.

Plan to help seniors turns into heading non-profit Retired transportation economist and Redmond City Councilman Hank Myers was doing volunteer work in his community when he proposed the idea of creating a nonprofit organization to help seniors maintain their independence by providing essential services that allow them to remain in their own homes. “My friend said that agency already exists,” Myers recalled. “That’s when she told me about Eastside Friends of Seniors.” Two years later, Myers is the new director of the volunteer organization that operates out of offices in the basement of the Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church on the Sammamish Plateau. Eastside Friends of Seniors provides free rides to medical appointments, help with shopping and basic home maintenance that allows seniors to maintain their independence as well as their dignity by allowing them to remain safe and comfortable in their own homes. The non-profit agency began serving seniors living in Sammamish and Issaquah in 1997 as Faith in Action. The board of directors voted to rebrand itself in 2010 to more closely identify the mission of the organization, the same year after volunteers began providing essential services to residents in the Snoqualmie Valley. Eastside Friends expanded its area of service to Bellevue in 2011. The organization hopes to offer services to seniors in

Redmond when the number of volunteers matches the demand for services in the community. Last year, volunteers with Eastside Friends of Seniors drove more than 20,000 miles transHank Meyers porting seniors to medical appointments and to the grocery store. Groups of volunteers have cleaned yards, done simple repairs and built ramps for residents in isolated areas of the community. There are no financial requirements to become a client. The free services from Eastside Friends of Seniors are available to any resident of the service area at least 60 years old. Myers has been involved with the airline industry for more than 40 years as a recognized expert on the economics of transportation as well as strategy development. He has won numerous civic awards for his contributions on transportation issues. Myers told board members that he hopes to utilize his the connections he has made in the public and private sectors during his decades of public service to help the agency expand its reputation with civic organizations and corporations that provide grants to non-profit agencies. “We do great work as an agency,” Myers said. “It’ll be my job to maintain the momentum we’ve created so we can serve even more seniors.” For more information about becoming a volunteer or a client of Eastside Friends of Seniors, log on to www.EastsideFriendsofSeniors.org or call 425-369-9120. Myers can be contacted directly at hank@mtcworld.com.

Community Roundup

What’s happening in Issaquah and Sammamish

Middle-schooler hit by car

A middle-school boy suffered minor scrapes and a bump on the side of his head after being hit by a car while walking to school Tuesday morning. The incident took place at Newport Way Southwest and Front Street South. He was taken to the hospital as a precaution. Patrol Sgt. Jeff Johnson, who responded, said the youngster said he had the right to cross, but the driver said she had a green light. The accident is still under investigation. The boy is doing fine.

‘Odysseo’ trick rider falls off horse

One of the “Odysseo” trick riders fell off her horse during Sunday’s matinee at Marymoor Park. According to Cavalia’s local press representative Catherine Major, the accident occurred just prior to intermission. Rider Mathilde Fraysse was unable to get back on her horse, Greco, and the show went into the break early. “In an abundance of caution, she was taken to (a local) hospital where she was checked over and she is fine and back in her apartment. The horse is also fine,” Major said.

PCC offering grant program

PCC Natural Markets has launched a community grant program. Four times a year, PCC will award a $1,000 grant to a school or nonprofit that exemplifies the spirit of the community. PCC is seeking projects and programs that involve food, particularly those relating to education, nutrition or sustainability. Application information can be found at pccnaturalmarkets.com/community/grants/.

Sammamish seeking Trail Stewards The city of Sammamish wants to turn residents

WWW.ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

into full-fledged volunteer Trail Stewards in the months ahead. Recruits will attend a city-run project management class. By summer, they will be novice Trail Stewards on a new connector trail at Evans Creek Preserve that will lead from a new parking lot and access point along Sahalee Way. Volunteers must pass a background check and applications must be in by the end of March. For full details, contact Sanders at 425-295-0556 or dsanders@sammamish.us.

Leak detection kits offered

As part of National Fix a Leak Week, March 1723, the city of Issaquah, a member of Cascade Water Alliance, will send toilet leak detection kits to all its residents. Cascade will send nearly 100,000 kits to homes in its service area throughout the Eastside and South King County. The average American home may waste more than 10,000 gallons of water every year due to running toilets, dripping faucets, and other household leaks, which can significantly raise a homeowner’s water and wastewater bills. One of the most common types of leaks, a leaking toilet, can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day. The toilet leak detection kit includes dye strips and simple instructions to check the toilet for leaks.

Kayak tours offered

Kayak Academy is now taking registrations for its annual spring nature tour along the shores of Lake Sammamish. A professional kayak guide leads the two-hour tour along the shores of Lake Sammamish and up a portion of Issaquah Creek. Tours will be from noon to 3:30 p.m. March 15-16 at Lake Sammamish State Park, 2000 N.W. Sammamish Road, Issaquah. Registration fee is $18 per person and kayak rentals are $12 for a single, sit-on-top kayak and $15 for a double or triple, sit-on-top kayak. Free dry suits and life jackets will be provided to all participants. Pre-Registration is required. Register online at KayakAcademy.com. For more information contact Kayak Academy at 206-527-1825.

Want to Prevent Summer Slide?

Too often, learning loss occurs over the summer and makes the school year a time of struggling to catch up instead of soaring ahead. In fact, kids who don’t have the opportunity to participate in summertime activities fall even further behind.

Some of the facts: • Students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer.

• Many children— particularly children at high risk of obesity — gain weight twice as fast in the summer as during the school year.

• Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in math computation skills over the summer.

• Parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do.

These problems can have an interactive effect. For example, research underscores multiple ways in which health affects motivation and the ability to learn. More and more children in the United States are obese — and overweight children tend to become overweight or obese adults, leading to a host of health problems. Many people blame schools, but research shows the opposite. In fact, children gain weight two times faster during the summer

• More than half of the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income youth can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities.

By Sammamish Family YMCA

months, gaining as much weight during the summer as they do during the entire school year, even though the summertime is three times shorter. Be sure to ask about how camps address summer learning, activity, and nutrition into daily camp routines.

Tips for parents School is barely out before it’s time to start the kids at day camp. All summer long, they will be able to do a variety of activities, go on group outings, and make lots of new friends. Here are a few tips to help your children enjoy this enriching experience, which they are sure to remember for the rest of their lives. First of all, it’s possible that your children will feel a little nervous about going to camp, especially if it’s their first time. Reassure them by describing all the activities that will be organized throughout the summer, emphasizing the ones you know they’ll prefer. Remind them that this is a perfect opportunity to experience wonderful adventures with other children of the same age. On the first day of camp, start them

This coming summer,

off on the right foot by giving them a good breakfast. They can take their own lunches and snacks or they can buy food if a cafeteria is available. Be careful of allergies—some camps, just like schools, ban peanuts. Every evening before bedtime, invite your children to participate in the preparation of their backpacks. Make sure they pack sunscreen, a hat or baseball cap, and a good pair of shoes. As most camps have swimming in their programs, ensure they also include a swimsuit, towel, and a change of clothing. Some pools require swim caps to be worn. You might also be required to supply life vests or swim floats if your children need them. Last but not least, go over basic safety rules with your children, and be sure to tell them to have a good time. After all, day camp is the perfect place to create unforgettable memories.

Most years, summer seems to fly by fast. But that wonderful, warm season can seem very long when you’re not prepared. To ensure that you can give your children the best summer ever, look into the variety of summer camps on offer in our region and book them in early. These days, summer camps offer an astonishing breadth of choice for all kinds of interests. Traditional outdoor activities, science, sports, arts, language immersion, and scouting are just some of what’s available for kids. It is worth taking the time to browse the options along with your children; their comments will reveal exactly what is most likely to work for them.

s e i r o m e m Browse the different types of camps with your children: sciences, sports, arts, scouting, and language immersion are just some of the choices.

Know how to listen and be decisive Maybe your children have already experienced summer camp, in which case you’ll be able to make a choice according to their likes and needs. You could also find out about camps that their friends go to, as they will probably be tempted by the same ones. If none of the camps available are of interest to them, you could compare the different possibilities yourself. There are general camps suitable for a wide range of children, while there are many others that aim to develop one particular strength. You could even take into account their school work or their personal aptitudes to help you come to a decision. Is it still hard to decide? Just follow your instincts. Book a short week instead of a full summer away, and then you’ll know for next year. And share all the positive experiences you had as a child at summer camp, or even better, show them some photos of your own life-long summer camp memories.

• Sailing • Canoeing • Tennis • Fishing • Riding • Swimming • Overnites • Archery • Dramatics • Music • Arts & Crafts • And much more!

First of all, find out from your children exactly what they have in mind when they think about going to camp. Of course, traditional camps are always available; they are ideal for children who love a bit of everything. Other camps are more specialized, and some offer activities that are really off the beaten path. Think about the following possibilities: sports, outdoor activities, dance, martial arts, sciences, languages, performing arts, visual arts, music, cooking, archeology, soccer, horse riding, deep-sea diving, circus, and the list goes on.

It’s time to en enroll BLAST INTO SUMMER

Pre-K, Day, & Overnight Camps Wakeboard School After School & Break Camps High School Leadership Camp

Even though summer seems far off, enrollment for day camps and summer camps has already started in many districts. As space at camps and day programs is usually limited, it is important to talk to your children now and decide where and how they want to spend their summer vacation. A multitude of camps propose many different formulas. Begin by carefully evaluating the personal needs and wishes of your child. The first thing to consider is the choice between a summer camp and a day camp. Longer or shorter stays are usually an option at either one. The main difference, of course, is that the former includes on-site lodging and full meals, while the latter only includes daytime activities, according to a fixed or variable timetable. As a

parent you will have to decide if your child is really ready to sleep away from home — and you — for a long or short period of time. If you feel your child is not yet ready to sleep away, in the care of teenaged camp counsellors and their adult supervisors, day camp offers the possibility of summer programming with a happy return home every evening. The next choice to make is the type of camp that your children will attend. Traditional camps are centered on outdoor activities, such as nature walks, swimming, and boating skills, while specialized camps are designed to satisfy a child’s more specific interests through programs based on the arts, sciences, or sports.

Issaquah family’s pet becomes a champion BY LINDA BALL ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

Tom and Bethany Urban just wanted a pet for their daughter, Madeline. Bethany grew up hunting with her dad in Eastern Washington, with their Irish Water Spaniels leading the way. Fond of the breed, the couple looked for one for their daughter, Madeline. "We weren't looking for a show dog, we were looking for a companion for our daughter," Urban said. By November of 2013 that companion, Riley, became the most winning Irish Water Spaniel in breed history, a record held since 1979. She was also the 2013 No. 1 Sporting Dog in the U.S. and No. 5 of all breeds. Then she won the 2013 Sporting Group at the 2013 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship. Last month, Riley was one of the seven finalists for Best in Show at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York City, winning Best in the Sporting Group. The Urbans found Riley at the Academy of Canine Behavior in Bothell, owned by Colleen McDaniel. The Urbans raised Riley, socialized her and got involved with the Irish Water Spaniel Club of Puget Sound. Later, they came in contact with East Coast dog expert Greg Siner, who told the couple they had a "good looking bitch."

COURTESY PHOTOS With that the Urbans had McDaniel show Riley at a local dog show. "We'd never been to a dog show — the closest we came was the movie 'Best in Show,'" Urban said. By 2010, Riley was starting to win championships. A year later, the Urbans noticed that three of Riley's litter mates were showing on the West Coast and doing well. They asked Siner to take her to the East Coast

and see what he thought. "It was a difficult decision to send her out, but Greg Siner is known as Mr. Irish Water Spaniel," Bethany Urban said. Siner became a co-owner of Riley. By October 2011 Riley got her first Best in Show with Siner handling her, and that's when the Urbans knew they made the right decision. "She loves it, and loves being in the

PET

shows,” Bethany Urban said. “She loves the clapping.” By December 2012, Riley had won 12 Best in Shows and became the top-winning female in the history of the breed. Riley had been to Westminster twice before. This time she beat all dogs in her breed and all 28 in the sporting group. After a competition at the Irish Water Spaniel Club of America National Speciality Show in Utah in late April, Riley will retire. Despite all the ribbons and awards, "Show dogs are pets — they're just groomed all the time," Bethany Urban said. "But they still have fun and she'll be back lying on the bed."

Eagles finish third after classic battle with Garfield BY JOSH SUMAN ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

Issaquah finished the boys basketball season Saturday at the 4A state basketball tournament and returned with the program’s highest placing in more than a decade, beating Todd Beamer 60-49 in the third place game. But it was a dominant showing against the top-ranked team in the state in the quarterfinals and an instant classic semi final with once-beaten Garfield that provided the crescendo. After waiting their entire careers, and basketball lives, to reach the Tacoma Dome, Issaquah wasn’t going to waste the opportunity in Thursday’s quarterfinal game. The Eagles seized control with a 10-0 run in a back-and-forth first quarter, and used a game high 18 points from junior guard Ty Gibson to beat top-ranked Jackson 56-44. “We’ve been working for a long time to be here, and we didn’t want to come out flat,” Gibson said. “We knew they were going to come out with a lot of energy, and we wanted to match that energy.” The Timberwolves led 14-12 before four straight points from freshman Trevon AryTurner spurned an extended 17-2 Issaquah run that lasted into the second quarter and saw the margin swell to 11. When Jackson finally pulled within two

possessions in the fourth quarter, Gibson scored four straight Eagles’ points to push it back to eight. “He’s a phenomenal player,” Griffith said of the first team All-KingCo selection. “We wanted to get him the ball and we did, and he executed.” Gibson finished 6-11 from the floor and hit five of his eight free throws, also grabbing ten rebounds, dishing out three assists and snaring five steals. Ary-Turner added 12 and senior Brian Watson scored nine, including a buzzer-beating three pointer to end the first quarter. “They knew if we played our game, we would come away with a win,” Griffith said. Part of that plan was hitting the glass, which the Eagles did to the tune of a 42-29 advantage on the night. Senior Cory Nevin grabbed nine of those, and also had six points and two steals after being challenged by his coach during the week. His impact away from the stat line was felt as well, as he contributed to an active defensive effort that kept Jackson stars Dan Kingma and Jason Todd from affecting the game. “I was so happy for him,” Griffith said. “He had a great day.” Issaquah entered Friday’s semi finals knowing only another win over Garfield, SEE STATE, 17

Crusaders nipped for 3A title BY JOSH SUMAN ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

Eastside Catholic had the ball in the final seconds of the 3A state title game against Rainier Beach, with the chance to win it at the end after leading by five points with just more than five minutes remaining in the game. But the Crusaders final possession ended amid a swarm of Rainier Beach defenders near midcourt, as the Vikings escaped 47-45 to claim their third straight championship, despite their lowest point total of the year by more than a dozen. The final eight minutes featured four ties and four lead changes, before a Djuan Piper bucket around the foul line provided the final margin. Junior Mandrell Worthy was the only player for EC in double figures with 21 points, including an 11-12 performance from the free throw line. Matisse Thybulle scored eight and Zach Wallin scored seven in his final prep contest. It wasn’t all heartbreak for coach Bill Liley’s squad in only the program’s third ever trip to the boys state basketball tournament, as they used the same defensive focus that nearly tripped nationally-ranked Beach in the finals to roll to quarterfinal and semi final wins. EC beat University 53-39 to get things started behind a game high 24 points from Worthy, who finished 10-22 from the floor and added five rebounds and three assists. “It was exciting, I had to get used to it,” Worthy said. “My teammates got me involved and I have to credit them for that.” Eastside Catholic led by four after the first quarter as sophomore Matisse Thy-

bulle scored seven of his 12 points, despite a litnay of missed layups and putbacks early on. “There were some nerves, and we had to grind through it,” Liley said. “Those guys are tough mentally and physically.” Even with the missed opportunities inside, the Crusaders opened the game on an 8-0 run to take control.The Titans never led and were consistently stressed by the Crusaders’ collective length on defense. “When you have guards like Matisse and Mandrell, that is what they do, they get up in people,” Liley said. “I’m proud of those guys on that end.” That pressure led to 20 turnovers by the Titans, including 14 in the first half, and kept the team’s leading scorer on the year, Michael Isotalo, in check to the tune of just three points on 1-9 shooting for the game. His only field goal came without a field goal until less than a minute remained and with the outcome decided. “Tons and tons of communication is the biggest thing for us on defense,” senior Nathan Christie said after his team’s 60-53 win over Wilson in the semi finals a day later, in another game that provided the lowest point total of the year for an EC foe. “Our coaches do a great job of scouting to let us know who the shooters are and who likes to put it on the ground.” A put back dunk from Thybulle got things started in the decisive third frame, and when the Rams turned it over a second straight time, buckets from Wallin and Nathan Christie pushed the lead to nine. “He is the toughest dude I’ve ever had the opportunity to be around,” Liley said of Nathan Christie. “He could coach this team without me.”

which had not stumbled but for one loss to the Eagles during the regular season, would extend their own title campaign. All Issaquah wanted against the Bulldogs was a shot to win it at the end. They got just that, but the final, pressured look from the far corner was off the mark at the buzzer, as Garfield won a thrilling 61-59 game in front of a packed house watching the boys court in the Tacoma Dome. Garfield sophomore guard Jashaun Agosto was fouled while attempting a three pointer with only seconds remaining, and hit two of three to provide the final margin in a game with 18 lead changes and 19 ties. “We were close,” Issaquah coach Jason Griffith said. “I have a lot of respect for that ball club.” Issaquah had its largest lead of the game early in the fourth quarter, before the Bulldogs regained the advantage in the final three minutes. A free throw from Gibson tied things at 54, before Addison McIrvin evened things at 59 with a pair from the line with only 1:13 remaining. Neither team took a lead larger than six throughout, but the Bulldogs used a 23-16 advantage at the foul line and a game high 19 points from senior transfer and Washington State University commit Tremaine Isabell to leave with the win. “The kids played extremely hard,” Griffith said. “They didn’t back down at all.” Gibson came back to score 18 points in Saturday’s third place game, just hours after the loss that ended their title hopes. Senior Jake Henke scored 14 to help his team to the win in his final prep contest against Todd Beamer, as Issaquah finished third.

Issaquah looking at closing Tiger Mountain school BY LINDA BALL

ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

The Issaquah School District is considering shuttering the alternative high school, Tiger Mountain Community High School. The district’s board president Marnie Maraldo, said Superintendent Ron Thiele hasn’t presented anything formal to the board yet, but when members looked at building a new Issaquah Middle School, they knew Tiger could become a different model than it is now. The plan to build a new middle school includes moving Tiger Mountain and Clark Elementary into the old middle school, which will be remodeled. “We knew there would be program changes,” Maraldo said. No new students will be enrolled at Tiger in the 2014-2015 academic year so most will graduate out before the changes, Maraldo said. The remaining 40 or so kids would then go back to their comprehensive high schools in the 2015-2016 academic year if they haven’t graduated. Lorraine Michelle, the district’s director of communications, said the district has some career and technological ideas to create what is referred to as a choice school. “We’re working on developing what that looks like,” she said. “Not all students fit the role in a comprehensive school.” She said that essentially Tiger has the same model as the comprehensive schools, with the same curriculum. “The new school won’t be one you’re referred to because of behavioral problems — rather focusing on a specific option,” Michelle said. She said professional-technical elements could be part of a choice school, but it’s more about students pursuing their passion.

But the non-profit Issaquah Community Network is not excited. The network’s board sent a letter to Thiele dated March 11 urging him keep Tiger Mountain open, continuing to serve students throughout the construction phase of the new school, and urging him to form an advisory council or sounding board to assist in this decision with the administration and school board. Thiele “Such a group would ideally include representation from current Tiger Mountain High School students and recent graduates (if available), school staff, parents, local and regional businesses involved with entry-level employment, central Issaquah neighborhoods and community members with expertise in mental health, drug and alcohol dependency, homelessness and poverty issues,” the letter penned by ICN chair Dianne Bugge, executive director Barbara de Michele, treasurer Judy Brewer and student representative Erika Kumar said. The network added that students at Tiger “face social, emotional, physical and economic challenges that might overwhelm people of any age.” The young teens ICN helps often have little family or community support. “The fact that these teens seek to further their education is an inspiring example for our entire community. Returning these students to their home high schools where they have often failed, or been marginalized or ostracized, is not the best solution for students who have already faced innumerable disruptions during their young lives. Helping these teens maintain ties to caring and supportive adults and a familiar school structure during the transition period to a new school

Swedish to provide mental health services to Issaquah schools The Issaquah School District and Swedish Hospital have teamed up to support the mental health and well-being of ISD students. The district recently contracted with Swedish for the professional services of three on-site mental health specialists. While the specialists are housed at Issaquah, Liberty and Skyline high schools, counselors and administrators at all of

our schools have access to them as a resource. For some time, the district has been seeking a way to provide professional-level care for mental health in its schools, officials said. Swedish Hospital, meanwhile, has recognized the need to extend its mental health services to the community off-site.

is clearly in the best interests of these students,” the letter states. Mike Schiehser, Tiger Mountain’s principal, said he’s focused on the kids and staff right now, letting them know he’s there for them and that they will be supported no matter what changes are coming. “Their needs and challenges are real,” Schiehser said of the students. “We’re letting them know we’re committed to supporting them until graduation. They do have a voice and their needs are being heard.” He said he knows that the district is going to want community, parent, student and staff involvement. He said there already has been a ton of input. “Not only will they get more input, as we start to plan a new school, we’ll start to get more input from other stakeholders. This is very challenging for staff and the students,” Schiehser said. “We have very vulnerable students, who have a lot of anxiety, depression, or have addictions to certain things and we have to make sure those students who are vulnerable get the services they need.” Michelle said the goal is to motivate Tiger students with real-world applications. “We’re trying to spark interest in subjects that are boring to students — to motivate them. We feel there are a fair amount of kids who are flying under the radar,” Michelle said. She said many students don’t know how to even find out about a specific career they might be interested in. One idea is to send them out, working in their field of interest. The district plans to meet one-on-one with the students remaining at Tiger to be sure they get the support they need to graduate. ICN, on the other hand, thinks that closure of the school for any length of time would leave students un-served and perhaps lost to the community forever.

Eastside Catholic students honored in arts and writing Five Sammamish residents and Eastside Catholic School students earned awards at the 2014 Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards this month. Abi Kirsten, Reagan McCauley, Andres O’beirne, Jillian Broughton and Sarah Ford were five of eight Eastside Catholic students who earned 13 total awards.

of the PAA, based on precinct vote. Tom Harman, who lives in the Ranch precinct of the PAA, said breaking it up not only will cause problems with who provides water and sewer, but also with homeowner’s association boundaries and who takes care of what roads. Any such gerrymandering of the PAA would require approval of the King County Boundary Review Board. Harman brought up the fact that the review board said Issaquah would have its shot, but if it failed, which it did, Sammamish should get its chance. Former city councilmember David Kappler testified that when Greenwood Point and Providence Point were annexed into Issaquah, everyone was happy, but now those neighborhoods are still waiting for improvements they were promised, but the city hasn’t delivered. “They need their promises fulfilled before Issaquah takes on Klahanie,” Kappler said. Karen Ditaroff in the Brookshire neighborhood, where there has been vocal support to annex to Issaquah, said she’s done with all the talking. “This is a democracy — we abide by the results,” Ditaroff said. “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should chop us up.

Concert to feature French, German music

Simple Measures will present a concert featuring both French music and a sonata by German composer Richard Strauss. The concert, from 7:30-9 p.m. March 18, will lead off with the Krishnaswami-Salman Duo, with Rajan Krishnaswami on cello and Mark Salman on piano, performing sonatas by by Francis Poulenc. The program’s second half will be an early work by Strauss in the style of the late 19th century Romantic period. The free concert is provided by the Sammamish Arts Commission and will be held at Sammamish Presbyterian Church, 22522 N.E. Inglewood Hill Road.

Playground planned at Sammamish skate park BY KELLY MONTGOMERY ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

Sammamish residents soon will be able to enjoy a playground outside of the Sammamish Library next to the skate park. The playground will replace a climbing wall that the city removed when it discovered mold and structural issues with the facility. Since then, the city has tried to figure out what to do with the unique space. City officials said the playground will be used for children aged 5-12 and as of now will include a slither slide, steparound, sky arch, oval arch, oval junction climber, leg-lift, twister and more. Jessi Bon, Sammamish parks director, said they hope to have the space reactivated by summer. She also said that they hope to collaborate with city groups to do something creative and fun, like a mural, with the remaining concrete wall.

Rugby coming to Boys & Girls Club Free demonstrations set for Sammamish BY KELLY MONTGOMERY ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

The Redmond/Sammamish Boys and Girls Club will be hosting two free demos this month to highlight and promote the game of rugby. The club is partnering with Serevi Rugby, which is headquarted in Seattle and runs camps in Issaquah. This will be the organization’s first time coming to Sammamish. “Working for them last year, I got

to see first hand how fast rugby is growing in the Puget Sound,” said Colin Moy, Redmond/Sammamish Boys and Girls Club Athletic Director. “The company has gained worldwide recognition for its level of programming on the youth and Olympic level.” Moy said that rugby recently became an official Olympic event, and Severi Rugby has been put in charge of developing future Olympians starting at the kindergarten level. “We’re hoping to provide another avenue for young athletes in the area to excel at,” Moy said. “The Redmond/Sammamish Boys and

Girls Club is very excited to partner with them.” The first rugby demo for grades one to eight was held on Wed. March 5, from 3-4 p.m. at Emily Dickinson Elementary in Redmond. There will be another demo on Wed. March 19 from 3-4 p.m. also at Emily Dickinson Elementary. The five week after-school program will start March 26. For more information contact Colin Moy at 425-250-4785 or cmoy@ positiveplace.org. Kelly Montgomery: 425-391-0363; kmontgomery@issaquahreporter.com

(L to R) Back: Carmen Malsbury, Bob Ittes, Melodee Bergsma, Jaclyn Hess. Front: Charlotte Jacobs, Julie Greenwood, Dorothy Mann.

The Newest Bank In Town Has A Very Familiar Look To It. When Bob Ittes was asked to open a Whidbey Island Bank branch in Issaquah, he knew exactly who should help him run it. He’d worked closely with Carmen, Charlotte and Julie for decades. Melodee, Jaclyn and Dorothy were also obvious choices to round out the crew, as each had extensive experience with other banks in Issaquah and the surrounding communities. What made it an even better fit for the bank and the new staff was the common belief that a successful community bank is based on the support of local people and businesses. With everyone back together again, this team is poised to become the bank for the eastside of the eastside. So if you’ve ever had the pleasure of working with any one of these folks, you might want to stop by and get caught up. Because in today’s ever-changing world, a familiar face can make all the difference.

Eastside Fire and Rescue reminds parents about poisoning hazards The week of March 16-22 is National Poison Prevention Week and Eastside Fire and Rescue is offering reminders on staying safe. Parents should use child-resistant containers but keep in mind they are not childproof. Also, EFR says all poisons should be kept out of reach of children and in original labeled pack-

ages. Parents also should re-read the label each time before they take or give any medicine and be sure they have good lighting and glasses if they need them. Finally, people should cook and store food as stated on packages; when children are near, take the container or the child with you to answer the door or phone; and remove mushrooms

growing in the yard. EFR officials say that high poisoning times are before meals and during times of change such as a move, packing for a trip, having visitors, illness, or when family problems occur. Parents are advised to teach children about Mr. Yuk and put the stickers on poisons.
