LWSD bond, county transit measure failing BY RAECHEL DAWSON firstname.lastname@example.org
uesday night’s first returns from the King County special election indicate the Lake Washington School District $404 million bond is well below the 60 percent yes vote needed to pass. The bond also needs a minimum turnout of 18,503 votes, which it has
received. The proposition has 17,652 votes, or 50.88 percent of the overall votes cast. The King County Transportation District sales tax and tab tax measure is also failing, receiving just 44.72 percent of the vote. The school district bond would have gone toward the district’s current
and future overcrowding issues by funding the construction of three new elementary schools, two in Redmond and one in Kirkland; a new middle school; the rebuild of Juanita High School; a new west side STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) focused school on the Juanita campus; and an addition to Lake Washing-
ton High School. The bond also would have left some funds for future capital projects. The levy rate was estimated to increase by 25 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation costing the typical homeowner’s $500,000 home $10.42 per month or $125.00 per year in property taxes over the [ more BOND page 5 ]

Habib, McBride switch places in running for legislature BY RAECHEL DAWSON email@example.com
Rep. Cyrus Habib with the 48th Legislative District and former Kirkland mayor Joan McBride have switched legislative positions which they will run for during the 2014 Washington state election. Habib, a Bellevue resident, initially endorsed McBride as she ran for the Senate position that is currently held by Sen. Rodney Tom, the Majority Leader and Majority Coalition Caucus member. Last week, Tom announced he would no longer run for Senate in the general election because of health and family-related issues. “I am excited to work with Joan as a colleague who shares my passion for strong communities, good schools and a transportation system that works,” Habib said in a news release. McBride will now run for Habib’s House Representative position after raising more than $70,000 for the [ more MCBRIDE page 5 ]

Friends of Youth celebrates new homes in Kirkland BY RAECHEL DAWSON firstname.lastname@example.org
As First Lady Trudi Inslee addressed the crowd at a Friends of Youth event, she called on legislators, who were also present, to get more organizations like
Friend of Youth implemented statewide. “Jay and I, and the whole state, would love to have these well beyond King County,” she said. “So legislators, we need to get this all over the state.” Inslee, King County
Executive Dow Constantine, Kirkland Mayor Amy Walen, and Rep. Roger Goodman were there to support and congratulate the nonprofit’s most recent success in completing the construction of two new homes for homeless youth
and the ground breaking of two more new homes for foster care youth on April 17. Sen. Andy Hill, Rep. Larry Springer and Rep. Ross Hunter also made an appearance to congratulate the nonprofit organization.
The Kirkland-based organization celebrated a ribbon cutting for two houses for 10 homeless teens and young adults ages 16-22 years old. It’s set to open in June. And there was a ground breaking for two extended foster care homes that will also house 10 young adults, ages 18[ more HOMES page 10 ]

an estimate on damage cost but said this fire was much smaller in comparison to the fire that occurred last week. “The other one was a ball of fire,” he said, adding that he was the instant commander on that garage fire. No occupants, firefighters or pets were injured. The cause is under investigation. Firefighters with Bothell and Woodinville also responded.
Earlier in the week, Kirkland firefighters responded to a one-story house fire on April 16 that left a car and a garage charred. At around 8 p.m., an occupant of the home, located at 10600 block of 124th Ave. NE in the North Rose Hill neighborhood, was taking a shower when they noticed something wasn’t right. “… They lost hot water, which made them wonder what was going on,” said Kirkland Fire Department Battalion Chief Larry Peabody. “They opened the garage and there was smoke.”

working correctly either. Luckily, a neighbor, the first reporting party, made the call to 911 at 8:21 p.m. and firefighters were there within minutes. “When the first unit arrived, the garage was completely gone,” Peabody said, adding that it took firefighters 10 minutes to control the fire. No pets, humans or firefighters were injured, and Peabody unofficially estimates the damage to be around $250,000. The rest of the house sustained smoke damage, as well as some neighboring shrubbery. “Underwriters Laboratories just finished a large scale study that determined that once a fire is found, all attempts to shut the doors should be made to limit the spread of the fire,” Peabody said. Bothell and Redmond firefighter units also responded. The cause of the fire is still under investigation; however, it is not being investigated as a suspicious fire at this time.

irkland firefighters responded to the second Kirkland garage fire in four days on Sunday night. It took about five minutes to control the fire, located at a two-story home in the 13400 block of 110th Place NE, near Edith Moulton Park. At 11:22 p.m., first
responders arrived to the homeowner spraying water on the fire, according to Kirkland Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Haschak. Haschak said firefighters made sure the fire was completely out before checking the rest of the garage, searching the entire house for all occupants and pulling the ceiling to make sure the fire hadn’t extended upwards.

Another legislative session, more missed opportunities If the state legislature were graded on its performance this year, it would have received an “incomplete.” This year’s legislative session in Olympia ended with so few results that one newspaper proclaimed it the “Do-Little Legislature.” When it came to our schools, easing traffic congestion, or protecting our rights and safety, state Senate leadership chose partisan unity over the leadership and independence required to serve our families and businesses. Missed opportunity No. 1: Fully funding education Days before the legislature convened, the State Supreme Court described this legislative session as “an opportunity to take a significant step forward” toward meeting the court’s mandate to fully fund education. “The need for significant action could not be more apparent,” it wrote. Instead of taking the court’s directive seriously, the legislature passed just $58 million in additional education spending — about 1 percent of the amount estimated to be needed by 2017 — and continued to ignore voter-approved initiatives to provide for more competitive teacher pay and to reduce class sizes. There are common-sense ways to increase sustainable school funding that doesn’t raise taxes on middle class families, but the Senate chose to keep massive tax loopholes for out-of-state companies instead. Investing in our children’s education, not corporate tax loopholes, guarantees us the best return on our investment, and it’s something I intend to do if I’m elected in November to represent the 45th Legislative District as a state senator. Additionally, for the first time in 18 years, the Legislature did not pass a construction budget. Despite winning broad bipartisan support in the House, the Senate’s Majority Coalition Caucus could not muster a single vote for the package. As a result, the state is attempting to fund instruction for all-day kindergarten without providing resources to increase classroom space and missed the opportunity to create 2,500 jobs. Missed opportunity No. 2: Passing a transportation package Every day, Eastside families see the results of the Senate’s failure to prioritize transportation when we sit in traffic jams and ride on overcrowded buses. This congestion costs Washington, the most trade dependent state in the country, money in lost time and productivity. One place where we see the immediate effects of the Senate’s inaction is SR 520. Lack of planning for its completion puts Eastside families at real risk of having to pay for a “Bridge to Nowhere.” When the state spends taxpayers’ hardearned money, it needs to do it right and be fiscally responsible. By failing to properly fund transportation — including transit and local roads — elected officials in Olympia aren’t living up to their end of the deal. Missed opportunity No. 3: Protecting health and families There were many common-sense bills that the Senate majority blocked out of sheer partisanship. These were bills that many in our district support, like protecting a woman’s right to make her own healthcare choices, and reforms to ban the use of harmful toxic chemicals in household products. These past four years, instead of creating policy that works for Eastside families, our elected officials have simply created more gridlock with fewer results. Hardworking families on the Eastside and throughout Washington state deserve better. We need leaders with a sense of urgency to address our problems, and that’s why I firmly believe that we need a new voice representing us in the state

Thank you to Fred Meyer, customers for donations Aegis of Kirkland wants to thank the Totem Lake Fred Meyer management team and their generous customers for their support of our Oso landslide “Fill the Bus” donation drive last week. Pillows, sleeping bags, blankets, water, pet food and lots of people food were donated April 1-3. Five Aegis vehicles caravanned up to Arlington drop-off sites. Those of us who were able to man the drive were simply overcome by the generosity of their customers. Some people came out with grocery carts full of donations and then went back in to do their own shopping. Others did what they could, knowing every little bit helps. Some customers knew people in Oso or had personal stories to share. It was a touching experience. Thanks to the generosity of their customers, the result of this collection will be a “store” where affected families can shop for what they need. The volunteers were surprised and impressed with the large amount of new items that are now available for these families. With deep gratitude,

Thank you officials for helping women with cancer If a woman develops breast or cervical cancer, whether or not her life can be saved should not be determined by the size of her bank account. The new health care law addresses this inequity, but as the transition to it takes place, some women are in danger of slipping through the cracks. Our concern for these vulnerable women motivated us to join the volunteers of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network for their Lobby Day in Olympia a few weeks ago. With cancer survivors and caregivers, we met with legislators from all parts of the state to ask for the restoration of the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program. It was time well-spent. Our lawmakers told us how cancer had touched their lives and that they were interested in discussing continued funding for the program. For nearly two decades, the program has
enabled uninsured and underinsured women to be screened for breast and cervical cancer, and for those diagnosed with cancer to receive health care coverage to treat their cancer. When the legislature adjourned last week, we were delighted to learn that the program was included in the final budget. We especially applaud Sen. Andy Hill and Rep. Ross Hunter for putting a high priority on the needs of women cancer patients in the state of Washington. It is reassuring to know that even during contentious times in Olympia, there are level-headed and sensible elected officials who do what it takes to ensure that no woman with cervical or breast cancer is denied care based on the size of her bank account.
Mary-Claire King and Eunice Hostetter, Kirkland
Support Andy Hill in the 45th District It is a pity Mr. Isenhower does not run for Rep. Larry Springer’s or Rep. Roger Goodman’s seat. Then we would have two fiscally focused, pro student funding advocates, as opposed to those that want to increase taxes for the very expensive bloated bureaucracy that characterizes the Lake Washington School District. Sen. Andy Hill worked to get a $1 billion budget with strong support for education, and a balanced budget and no tax increases. Considering the consensus that Hill made with his Democrat colleagues, for a 89 percent vote to pass the budget. A budget that Hill worked so hard to move forward, great support for essential school services and without tax increases. If Mr. Isenhower wishes to help the schools he could work to trim the excessive bureaucracy, the wasteful and very expensive program of tearing down good solid buildings for over priced replacements and focus the money on education and a solid future for the students. Oh but wait, Mr. Isenhower is thrilled to be selected by the WEA as their candidate. So the WEA’s power grabs at the expense of the teachers and children happens again. A few facts to back my assertions up from Josh Amato at Shift WA. The WEA exerted its considerable influence over Democrat lawmakers in Olympia to withhold $40 million per year in federal education funding for needy children because it didn’t want to take a teachers test seriously.

District officials said if the bond didn’t pass they would be forced to reduce or eliminate all-day kindergarten, double shift Kindergarten through 12th grade, which means the school would operate in two shifts so more students can be taught in less space. They would have to add portables “wherever possible,” which cost $300,000 each, they would have to change delivery models for district programs, re-boundary and/or change to a school year calendar. In a district-wide survey of 400 residents done after the first bond failed, district officials learned that 23 percent of people who voted against the bond said it was because it was simply too expensive. Another 16 percent said the reason they voted against it was because it was a tax burden. The election will be certified by May 6.

Baby Boomers could be healthiest generation ever disease, can now be treated more successfully, said Dr. David Cutler, an economics professor at Harvard University and one of the authors of the study report. “There are a number of conditions, such as heart disease, that used to be very, very impairing. It used to be that after a severe heart attack, people would essentially be bedridden, or they would wind up in nursing homes. We’re not seeing that anymore,” he added. While that is good news for retiring Baby Boomers, these findings are not universally applicable. Timi Gustafson
Older Americans have a much better chance to enjoy many more years of good health and vitality than any generation before them due to better medical treatment and easier access to healthcare, according to a recent study, based on data collected by government health agencies over the last three decades. On average, seniors living today in the United States can expect about two more years of healthy living than their parents. Health problems that were debilitating just a short while ago, like vision problems or cardiovascular
A higher percentage of the boomer generation (about 36 percent) is obese compared to any other group in the U.S. The two generations directly above and below are about 25 percent. That puts boomers at an exceptionally high risk of suffering from diet and lifestyle-related illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer, all of which may be treatable but still have diminishing effects on people’s quality of life. In other words, although boomers can greatly benefit from the enormous medical and pharmaceutical advances that have been made over the last decades, their well-being still largely
depends on how well they take care of themselves. Unfortunately, current trends are not pointing in the right direction. Studies show that younger boomers, those born in the 1960s, have a higher prevalence of obesity than those born one or two decades earlier. The overall increase in
obesity rates throughout the boomer generation is steeper than any other before them. Considering the means and opportunities older Americans have today to meet their health needs, it is surprising that so many ended up less healthy than previously thought, said Dr. Dana King of the West Virginia University Department of Family Medicine
and author of a study on the health prospects of the aging population.

22. It will be complete in early fall. “Families are human and families are frail and sometimes they are not able to provide an atmosphere where the children can thrive and sometimes not even survive,” said Walen at the event. “It’s especially meaningful to me the work that’s done by Friends of Youth and I am just honored and privileged they chose to put their home in Kirkland.” Friends of Youth CEO and President Terry Pottmeyer said the occupants will be chosen through the King County coordinated entry system where they’re interviewed and matched with housing. She said there have been no decisions if the completed homes will have a mix of young women and men living together or if they’ll divide the occupants based on gender. Pottmeyer said while the ribbon cutting/ groundbreaking doesn’t satisfy their vision, which is that every youth should have every opportunity to succeed, it does make them one step closer. “Since June 2012, we’ve

Roger Goodman, Friends of Youth President and CEO Terry Pottmeyer, Rep. Larry Springer, Friends of Youth Board Chair Nick Merriam, King County Councilwoman Kathy Lambert and King County Councilman Rod Dembowski. Photo courtesy of Friends of Youth been on a journey to raise funds, raise awareness and raise some roofs, seven to be exact, to achieve and fulfill our vision for youth on the Eastside,” Pottmeyer said, adding that although they have more than 85 units of transitional housing being used, there’s still more than 200 people on the waiting list. Within the last two years Friends of Youth has opened their Redmond
Youth Service Center, their Youth Haven home and headquarters, which provides case management, employment and mental health support. Both are located in Kirkland. Pottmeyer said the construction cost on the projects done in the last few years was within a $6.8 million budget. The funds were acquired through their Capital Campaign, which had a
mix of public grants and individual donations. The four houses in Kirkland cost about $2 million total or $500,000 per house. Legislators and Friends of Youth also celebrated legislation recently passed that allows foster care youth age, 18-21 to stay in the foster care system as long as they work toward post secondary education, such as college, job training or for those who are working full time.
“I have a first grader and a fifth grader and they’re healthy and they’re safe,” said Goodman, who sponsored the foster care bill. “And they’re gorgeous and athletic and popular but I can’t imagine at age 18 kicking them out into the street and that’s what’s happening for too many kids who are vulnerable from unstable homes.” Goodman cited a study of three foster care programs in three different states and said although the ones who provided care until age 18 were “richly endowed programs” the one that had the best outcome, even with a “crappy program” was a system that served foster care youth until they were 21. “Imagine those key years between 18-21 and having to be homeless, and as Dow [Constantine] said, 40 percent of kids who exit foster care at age 18 end up homeless,” he said, adding that budget chairs Hill and Hunter should be thanked for budgeting the funds for the expanded program.

Couple starts FlyCaster Brewing Company email@example.com
onefish Blonde, Hopper Pale Ale, Yakima River Red and Rocky Ford IPA. These are the first microbrews to come from the first brewery in Kirkland when it opens in mid-May. FlyCaster Brewing Company is the product of one Bothell man’s two passions fly fishing and brewing beer. After months of permitting applications, remodeling and preparation, Jeremy and Tara Eubanks are looking forward to FlyCaster’s grand opening on May 16-17. “It’s been very challenging trying to do this with the family life and work life but it’s been amazing, we’ve built this all ourselves,” Jeremy Eubanks said, adding that they’ve been able to do it without any investors or other financial help. The Eubanks started dating in high school and, for as long as Tara Eubanks has known him, fly fishing has been her husband’s true passion. Jeremy Eubanks grew up in eastern Washington and attended Eastern Washington University while Tara Eubanks attended law school at the University of Washington. They both moved to the Eastside after Jeremy Eubanks landed a job with Microsoft, where he still works today. The move, he said, sparked his interest in brewing beer, as there are so many breweries in Seattle and the surrounding areas. While he was attending grad school at Seattle University he created business plans for opening a brewery, eventually prompting him to take the leap. “It was a ‘if I don’t do it
now, I probably won’t do it’ mentality,” he said. In May 2012, the Eubanks solidified that decision to begin the steps of opening FlyCaster Brewing Co. “Being first-time business owners, the process has been long and we have had many ups and downs,” said Tara Eubanks, who is a coowner. “We have experienced times of uncertainty, doubt and disagreement. We have been out of our comfort zone on many occasions. Yet, this process has helped us understand what we are really made of and taught us a lot.” Jeremy Eubanks explained he’s been brewing about 15 years and remembers continuously pouring out his brew for the first five years because he didn’t like the way it tasted. He said his current beer is the kind of “stuff I can drink during fly fishing,” with an American style. “No funky Jalapeño flavors here,” he said with a smile. Jeremy Eubanks said his brew uses “citra hops” from Yakima with standard grains, specifically noting the IPA’s tropical, floral flavor. As with the other recipes, the Bonefish Blonde is described as a clear, crisp brew that can be consumed
while one relaxes as they fly fish for a bonefish. While Jeremy Eubanks said FlyCaster Brewing Co. has a demographic of “outdoorsy folk” and microbrewery lovers, customers shouldn’t expect to see a large moose head on the wall of his brewery. Instead, the brewery will have a “fishing lodge meets modern” feel to it. So far, the place has wood paneling

on the main wall, walnut slabs for the bar top and flooring with deep browns and blacks. More will come as the grand opening gets closer, he said, as he envisions people sitting around a fireplace on couches and leather bar stools. The brewery’s front bar space can house about 40 people, while the back warehouse, where the beer is brewed, can hold another 40. Jeremy Eubanks said FlyCaster, which will only sell its own beer and is open to families with children, as they will sell pretzels. During the coming months, the small business owners’ hope is to host private events Monday through Thursday, as well as some public ones - think fly tying classes and showings of fly fishing films. Other short-term goals are to mount a TV for sports and partner with
friends and family, and we are thankful for that,” Tara Eubanks said. “We are both looking forward to the future success of this business and to that moment when we say ‘why the heck did we wait so long?’ We want our kids to be able to see that dreams really do come true.” To celebrate FlyCaster Brewing Company’s grand opening, food truck Ultimate Melt, which cooks and sells grilled cheeses, will serve customers on Friday, May 16 and Street Hawk, a food truck that sells burgers, will be at the brewery’s Saturday opening. FlyCaster Brewing Company’s hours are 4-9 p.m. on Fridays and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays. It is located at 12815 NE 124th St., suite 1 in Kirkland’s Totem Lake neighborhood.

First Kirkland brewery to open this spring
Friends of the Cedar River Watershed, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting the Cedar River and Lake Washington Watershed. Eubanks said this organization is important to him because the Cedar River is often where he fly fishes. Throughout the next six months Jeremy Eubanks looks forward to potentially working with local summer festivals such as Kirkland Summerfest, Kirkland Oktoberfest and other Washington state beer festivals. The Eubanks’ longterm goals include increasing the number of beers with a seasonal beer, stout and brown ale, and getting their brews into restaurants. Eventually, they’d like to expand the brew system, the location and turn the brewery into a pub that sells food. All of this is outlined in their fiveyear plan, Eubanks said. “We have had a lot of support, both physically and emotionally from our

the plans should include. At the April 26 event, participants will see how community feedback was integrated into the plans and can allocate “Kirkland bucks” toward their preferred projects and level of investment. As part of its annual education series called Neighborhood University, the Kirkland Alliance of Neighborhoods is sponsoring an informative discussion on traffic impacts facing Kirkland today and how the city is addressing them in compliance with the Growth Management Act.

The city of Kirkland Parks and Community Services Department invites citizens to review schematic design options for improvements to Edith Moulton Park at an open house event between the hours of 7 and 9 p.m. on April 30 at Helen Keller Elementary School, 13820 108th Ave. NE. Citizens can drop by to meet with Kirkland Park Board members, staff and design consultants to review and comment on options for future improvements to the 26-acre park property acquired from King County in 2011. Project goals include preserving and managing the park’s extensive forested areas; protecting and enhancing the park’s stream and wetlands; improving accessibility for all trail users; exploring opportunities for environmental education and historic interpretation; and providing for the recreation needs and interests of local residents. Input from citizens will be used to finalize a park master plan scheduled to be approved by the Kirkland City Council later in 2014. Park construction is scheduled to begin in 2015 and is funded by the voterapproved 2012 Kirkland Parks Levy. For more information contact Michael Cogle, Deputy Director of Parks and Community Services, at mcogle@kirklandwa. gov or 425-587-3310.

State Route 520 bridge with a unanimous vote on April 16. The new rates will take effect on July 1. The new peak, weekday Good To Go! pass toll rate will be $3.80, and the new peak, weekday Pay By Mail toll rate will be $5.40. The “weekday peak rate” is defined as 7-9 a.m. and 3-6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The increase affects all toll rates, but drivers using a Good To Go! pass will continue to pay the lowest rate. The complete tollrate schedule for the SR 520 bridge will be posted online later this month at www.wstc.wa.gov. SR 520 traffic and revenue continue to meet projections and are on track to provide $1.2 billion in funding to help pay for the construction of a new bridge. This year’s increase is the third of four annual 2.5 percent toll rate increases for SR 520, which is part of the commission’s plan established in 2011.
energy bills, while helping to fight climate change. Properly placed trees save energy by providing summer shade, winter warmth, and seasonal windbreaks. Trees also provide many environmental services such as contributing to cool and clean water. To be acknowledged as a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation, a city needs to have either a tree board or a city department that is responsible for tree care and management (or both), establish a tree ordinance, spend at least $2 per capita on tree care, and celebrate Arbor Day.
