Four teens face charges in violent crime spree BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

Four Bellevue-area teens are alleged to have stopped and robbed several pedestrians in Bellevue and Redmond over a onehour period earlier this month, reportedly punching two and stabbing another. Jesus M. Uriostegui, 18, faces three counts of first-degree robbery in King County Superior Court after he and three friends allegedly drove around Bellevue and Redmond late April 18 to early April 19, stopping pedestrians and bicyclists and robbing them of their belongings. His first alleged victim, a 21-year-old Bellevue man, was riding his bicycle near

140th Avenue Southeast and Southeast Sixth Street around 11:50 a.m. April 18, when police allege Uriostegui and Miguel A. Perez, 17, stopped him. AccordJesus M. Uriostegui ing to court documents, Perez admitted to police he punched the victim, causing a hairline fracture to his cheekbone. Uriostegui, alleged to have been armed with a knife during the robberies, reportedly cut the victim with a knife just above his right ear. The suspects made off with a backpack containing a tablet PC. A 31-year-old Bellevue man reported

walking along Factoria Boulevard around 12:24 a.m. April 19, when a man approached him and robbed him of his backpack and cellphone. Uriostegui is alleged to have stabbed the victim in the back, and Perez reportedly told police he pushed the victim to the ground and later threw the backpack out of the car while passing through a residential neighborhood. Perez faces two counts of first-degree robbery and is being charged as an adult. An 18-year-old Redmond man was walking on the 14800 block of Redmond Way when Uriostegui is alleged to have stopped and threatened him with a knife to his throat. Francisco Ayon, 18, is alleged to have punched the victim in the face.

Metro releases revised bus route cuts, reductions


Changes to begin in September BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

Following the failure of Proposition No. 1 last week, King County Metro on April 24 released its revised list of bus route cuts and revisions anticipated to begin in September and be staggered through 2015. The King County Council accepted Prop 1's failure shortly after preliminary figures were confirmed on April 22, showing the funding measure — expected to prevent nearly 200 bus cuts and reductions — at 55 percent in opposition. The count was at 54 percent opposed on April 24, with a 37 percent turnout. Based on a March revenue forecast, the proposed cuts and changes to King County Metro routes changed slightly from 74 to 72 routes lost. That’s roughly 34 percent of the Metro system. The 107 routes proposed to be reduced or changed dropped to 84. Of those reductions, 48 percent will occur during peak transit hours. Cuts to Bellevue routes identified April 24 include 237, 242 (Northgate to Over-

Route 235 is listed as being provided with additional service. Unchanged will be routes 245 (Kirkland to Factoria) and 246 (Eastgate via Factoria). Prop 1 would have allowed for a recently formed King County Transportation Benefit District to implement a one-tenth of a cent sales tax and a $60 car-tab fee. Lowincome county residents would get a $20 rebate. Prop 1 was anticipated to generate $130 million in revenue, with 40 percent going to local road and transportation projects. Metro service changes occur three times each year, meaning the first cuts, reductions and route changes will start in September, said Rochelle Ogershok with the King County Department of Transportation. Three more rounds of cuts and changes will occur in February, June and September of 2015. Ogershok said the staffing cuts that will come with the cuts and reduced service SEE METRO, 17

Scaled back Surrey Downs Park ready to design BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

A revised master plan for the Surrey Downs Park won’t have many of the amenities envisioned back in 2009, but project manager Glenn Kost says its design satisfies the both neighborhood residents and Sound Transit’s light rail station plan. Kost told the Bellevue City Council on Monday the parks department reached a consensus with the neighborhood after changing the 2009 Surrey Downs Park Master Plan to account for the incoming

East Main Station along 112th Avenue Southeast. While light rail forced out plans for programmed athletics, a skate spot, large picnic shelters and an off-leash area for dogs, Kost said use of the park should be steady throughout the year once complete. Surrey Downs residents were largely concerned with the visual and noise impacts from light rail trains that will travel along the park perimeter, said Kost. The solution for between the park and rail line is to erect a two-tiered wall with a 15-foot

landscape strip for 112th frontage. Kost said there’s little the city can do about the sight of light rail guide wires. The western perimeter of the park facing Surrey Downs residences will include a 5-foot retaining wall, and Kost said the parks department will work with residents on planning a perimeter fence to increase noise mitigation. East Link will remove access options to the park and neighborhood on 112th Avenue Southeast, so access will now be at Southeast Fourth Street. Kost told councilmembers there are no concerns about scaling back parking from about 100 spaces to about 20, and it will be sufficient for the anticipated use. Councilmember John Chelminiak said he’s concerned activity at the park will be greatly reduced without a skate spot — not a skate park — and transforming the Sports Meadow into a Play Meadow. He predicted Monday the park will continue being used as an off-leash area for dog owners despite being prohibited and the city won’t have the enforcement to stop it. Mayor Claudia Balducci told the council it can always add back the amenities originally planned for the park in the future.

King County Council to decide Metro land sale to Bellevue BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

The King County Council will hold a public hearing in May before potentially authorizing the $17.95 million sale of downtown property to the city of Bellevue for undetermined future development. About one-third of the 1.53-acre site — adjacent to City Hall — will be granted to Sound Transit for a downtown light rail station as part of its East Link extension, and the remaining space will be used for construction staging purposes until the project is completed. The city has attempted to purchase the 66,429-square-foot property on Northeast Sixth Street for more than six years, but neither government jurisdiction was able to reach an agreed price during that time. The city has stated the property’s future purpose is still being decided. King County Metro originally purchased the site to provide a bus layover area using Federal Transit Administration funding,

but that development did not occur. The FTA did have to approve of the sale to the city of Bellevue and provided a concurrence letter in October citing the $17.95 million price tag as the established appraised value based on the highest and best use of the property for hotel purposes and light rail station construction at 11101 N.E. Sixth St. However, based on a payment schedule provided by King County, the city of Bellevue will likely pay another $6.7 million through Dec. 31, 2026 when the sale is set to close. The King County Council will hold a public hearing regarding the sale 1:30 p.m. Monday, May 12 at the King County Courthouse, Room 1001. The property is zoned as a Downtown Mixed Use District. Revenue from the sale of the property will go to King County’s transportation fund. Brandon Macz: 425-453-4602;

We need to support our neighbors in wake of explosion


ince becoming publisher of the Snoqualmie Valley Record in October 2008, one characteristic I have quickly and regularly noticed about the people of the Snoqualmie Valley is their generosity and their resiliency. Whether it was the 2009 flood, the Great Recession, ice and snow storms and days-long power outages, or even the Taylor Bridge Fire over the pass in Cle Elum and Ellensburg, the Valley has always come together to generously support their neighbors that are affected by unfortunate events. After the terrible explosion that tore a hole through downtown North Bend in the wee hours of April 25, we are truly grateful that no one was killed or seriously hurt. However, several businesses were badly damaged, but can hopefully be William Shaw repaired soon. In light of the situation, I urge my fellow Eastsiders, both individually and as a business community, to come together to help not only these individual Snoqualmie Valley businesses and their employees, but also the city of North Bend in its efforts to heal and spring back. More and more, every community on the Eastside is interconnected in many ways. What affects one, truly affects us all. At my local publications in Bellevue, Snoqualmie, Issaquah, Sammamish and Mercer Island, we’ll use our print, web and social media outlets to keep our loyal Eastside readers informed about this event and many others that affect our neighborhoods, our communities and the region. We’ll also be encouraging partnerships with our many friends at all the Eastside chambers of commerce and business groups, focusing on how they can use their resources and membership to lend a hand to help our neighbors in North Bend. The Snoqualmie Valley is King County’s backyard playground. As many of us know already, the city of North Bend is a town that has lots to offer. I urge you to take the 20-minute drive east some weekend, and eat, drink, play, listen to music, shop, hike, have fun, relax, and enjoy North Bend’s unique gifts. Easy to reach and, with the amazing scenery and outdoor adventures just outside of town, hard to leave. You’ll not only have fun, but will also be helping your neighbors at the same time. – William Shaw, publisher, Bellevue Reporter

Energize Eastside project

Can this relationship be saved?


write in hope that we can rescue the relationship between PSE and its Eastside customers. Things have gotten rocky for us these past few months. The company organized “Community Advisory Groups” to help plan the Energize Eastside project, and we were impressed. Now we see that neighborhoods have a minority role, and the other members won’t question the company’s conclusions (some of their organizations get Don Marsh nice grants from PSE). Ultimately, PSE can ignore any recommendations the groups produce. Although this process has been disappointing, I’m still hoping we can work together. PSE wants to deliver reliable power and provide a decent return for its investors. We want to maintain the beauty, character, and safety of our neighborhoods and homes. These goals do not have to be in conflict. But PSE insists there is only one way

Can we share the existing corridor along I-405 with Seattle City Light? Could the wires go in Lake Washington? How about safer distributed solutions like co-generation or batteries?” PSE responds that every other option is too expensive or insufficient. Let’s imagine what the debate would be if PSE had included an underground choice. The company could say “Here’s an underground route. It will preserve your views and property values, but it will cost everyone two dollars each month on their electricity bill.” The public could decide whether that is how we want to spend our money. Doesn’t that sound like democracy in action, giving everyone a say in decisions that will affect all of us for decades to come? PSE’s meetings continue throughout 2014, so there is time to fix this.

Funding Education


Being local makes a difference

A community bank says it will forgive uninsured debts of the mudslide victims. Officials at some of the bigger banks are thinking about it. I think it is a good lesson on who you do business with. I am not associated with either, but I think we need to support local banks/businesses — they support the community because they, as a business, live here.

Bellevue appears unresponsive

It has taken the best part of a year for the leadership in Bellevue City Hall to effectively not appoint a new city manager. It is the latest example of their inability to appoint senior management from outside of the city of Bellevue. Regardless of the merits of the candidates, the decision leaves me with little confidence in our city – we appear unresponsive, conservative and unwilling to make improvements for fear of breaking up the “Old Boys Club.” I would like to see Mr. Miyake and his pals become more positive in the next year, making and sticking to aggressive deadlines, and drawing a line under some of the ongoing projects that continually reappear on the pages of this paper. Only then will our government be able to keep up with the speed the Eastside is moving at today.

Action needed, not words

Mainstream reporters try to justify the President Obama’s late, inadequate response (at Oso). He responds with action much better to worldwide events than to issues within the US. His concern for Oso came a month late, and it appears it was only a stop-over on his way to South Korea and Japan. Talk is cheap. What is needed is better leadership and more funding. A few less worldwide excursions by the Obama family could easily provide more funding for these American disasters.

Power project has too many downsides

I am very uneasy about the prospect of huge power lines that Puget Sound Energy proposes to bring to my neighborhood. And I am not certain what to do to show that opposition. I was hoping to join the voice of the resistance and yet I have not found the loud voices. I fear that we will be overrun with this unwanted project. So here is my single voice. This is not for our neighborhood. There are way too many downsides.

School days for Legislature


magine the domed state Capitol as a classroom, with 147 state lawmakers as students, and you may get a better picture of the challenge facing Washington’s Supreme Court this summer. Justices in January gave the “students” a two-part assignment, which was due April 30. They told them they needed to put more money into education, reminding them the state must fund the full cost of basic education in public schools by 2018. Another part of their homework required legislators to draw up a timeline showing what will be spent year-to-year, to ensure the state meets the court-imposed deadline in the McCleary case. Well, those “students” didn’t get either done. On Wednesday, a bipartisan committee of lawmakers representing the Legislature Jerry Cornfield turned in a required progress report, which described how they tried, and how political and philosophical divisions prevented them from completing their assignment. They also explained that supplemental budgets, like the one adopted in 2014, are not the ideal vehicle for making a billiondollar investment, as the court might have desired. A decision like that will be best made in 2015 when the next two-year budget is adopted. And in the 58-page report, lawmakers expressed appreciation of the justices’ prodding to get them to live up to their constitutional obligations for education. But they also not-so-subtly said “Don’t mess with us” in a section arguing why they didn’t think


show good faith: 1. Disband the Community Advisory Groups. Residents no longer believe that they represent our views, and that just makes us angry. 2. Change the process to give us real choices, and let our communities have a real say in the outcome. 3. Don’t send Andy Wappler to any more public meetings. He was a good spokesman to introduce the project; now we can’t trust that we’re getting straight answers from him. I don’t think it’s too late, but it will require effort to reverse the damage this project has done to PSE’s reputation. I’ll pray for that.

the justices could force them to do the homework as assigned. How will the court deal with such recalcitrance? It’s a bit of a crapshoot because, well, there’s never been a showdown quite like this between these two branches of Washington government. The Supreme Court could deliver another scolding – there have been two so far – then wait to see if lawmakers next year come up with “the grand agreement” they deem necessary for doing as they’ve been told. Or it could exact punishment, as has happened in other states. In March, the Kansas Supreme Court directed the Legislature to provide more funds for education by July 1, or else part of the state budget will be voided. In Washington, justices in January warned of a potentially bumpy road ahead should lawmakers not turn in a completed assignment. Those families and school districts whose lawsuits led to the McCleary decision hope the court’s patience is running out. Lawmakers candidly admit in the report they did not do what the court asked them to do, said Thomas Ahearne, who is the attorney for the plaintiffs. “Frankly, the Supreme Court is going to have to make a decision,” he said. “They are going to have to decide whether they meant what they said.” If they do, those “students” could face a lot more than detention.

Bellevue Whole Foods tapped for waste management pilot

Chatalas brothers tap rivals for Tavern Hall design



Whole Foods has tapped its Bellevue store to pilot a partnership with bio-clean tech company WISErg Corporation, tracking its food waste and turning it into organic fertilizer that the supermarket can sell back to its customers. WISErg offers up the Harvester to Whole Foods, which will use the unit to run diagnostics and capture information about the waste being placed inside. It also takes the food scraps placed inside and converts it into a liquid used by WISErg to make an organic fertilizer that Whole Foods will then sell in Bellevue. “We have a handful of other stores that are really excited about this technology and they want to get their hands on it and we just have to kind of slow them down a bit,” said Dena

The city has approved a design review to convert the old Bally’s Total Fitness building in Eastgate to a new Bellevue Nissan dealership. According to an approved design review in the city’s weekly permit bulletin, the new Bellevue Nissan dealership will replace the shuttered gym at 3235 148th Ave. S.E. and keep an adjacent parking garage for inventory and employee parking. An employee skybridge will connect the dealership and service facility to the garage. Due to safety concerns on 148th Avenue Southeast, access to Bellevue Nissan will be made at Southeast Eastgate Way by demolishing the old Cane’s Motel site. Project architect DBA Architects states in its application the design will adhere to established Nissan standards and look much like the recently remodeled Nissan of the Eastside dealership on Northeast Eighth Street. Part of the western portion of the Bally’s building will be demolished, bringing the dealership down to 34,830 square feet. The design also calls for a pedestrian plaza at the corner of Eastgate and 148th.

Transportation commission sends priorities to council BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

The Bellevue Transportation Commission is passing along its recommendations for transportation project priorities to the City Council for consideration during its May 19 budget hearing. Commissioners unanimously approved revised transportation improvement and capital investment program recommendations to council on Thursday, April 10 after a public hearing where residents voiced their opinions about what needs fixing in the city. There are 81 projects proposed under the 2015-20 Transportation Improvement Program, with outstanding issues including extending Northeast Sixth Street as a high-occupancy vehicle lane from I-405 to 120th Avenue Northeast. Joe Pham, president of the Monthaven Association and representing several other Bellevue neighborhoods, told commissioners they want the city to prioritize adding sidewalk to a 0.9-mile stretch of Newport Way deemed unsafe for pedestrians and bicyclists. There are more than 40 areas in need of sidewalks listed in the Transportation Improvement Program, said Kristi Oosterveen, TIP program administrator. East Bellevue Community Council member Steve Kasner, pushed for replacing three traffic signals along 148th Avenue Northeast that have been there since the 1970s. Eric Miller, capital programming manager for the city transportation department, said these projects would fall under the Capital Investment Proposal's Major Maintenance Program. As part of the commission's approval of the TIP, Commissioner Vic Bishop added as a priority a $200,000 north corridor study in the Bellevue Way area of the city.

LEARN MORE To catch up on all the projects being proposed, check out the proposals online: TIP CIP

The 2015-2021 Capital Investment Proposal retains 39 projects in the current CIP, with 26 "discrete" projects. Of those projects, there are 11 proposals being developed, said Miller, including Phase 2 of the West Lake Sammamish Parkway, design planning and the Eastside Rail Corridor plan. Expected to be a highly political discussion, Miller said, is whether the city should add to an HOV lane on Bellevue Way to be constructed by the state transportation department near the South Bellevue Park and Ride, which will eventually be replaced with a light rail transit station. Miller said staff has identified three new proposals that include station area plan improvements for when Sound Transit places several transit stations in the city that will allow for "placeholder funding" for those projects. Another proposal is for a Bel-Red local street network identification project. The last is whether to continue maintaining the city's last gravel road or to close Cougar Mountain Way and turn it into a trail. Brandon Macz: 425-453-4602,

County accepts rail corridor report The Metropolitan King County Council accepted a report April 7 from the regional panel that is developing the recommendations that will guide the creation of the Eastside Rail Corridor. The report outlines what the Eastside Rail Corridor Regional Advisory Council recommends as the future use of the corridor, the 42-mile rail line that extends from Renton to Snohomish, passing through Bellevue, Kirkland, Woodinville, Redmond and portions of unincorporated King County.

The report cites that the development of the corridor will enhance the mobility of the region, including the creation of a critical north-south transportation corridor that will allow for multimodal connections, including high-capacity transit — heavy rail, light rail and other fixed guideway transportation — and non-motorized trail use. The report is available at http://www.

Bellevue named a city on the rise for 2014 Bellevue has been named among the top 10 Washington cities on the rise by Estately, a national real estate search site. The award for cities with populations over 30,000 is based on rankings in six criteria, with data derived from the U.S. Census and the FBI's Uniform Crime Report. The criteria includes increases in population (2000-2012), increases in median home values (2000-2010), decreases in poverty rates (2000-2012), reduction in crime

(2000-2012), increases in median household income and increases in residents with bachelor's degrees. Cities were ranked for each criteria and then averaged to determine overall rankings. A complete explanation of the study and total rankings can be found at http:// The top 10 cities were Issaquah, Pasco, Auburn, Bellevue, Sammamish, Bellingham, Lacey, Olympia, Seattle and Renton.

A 32-year-old man wanted in King County for his part in an alleged identity theft ring and believed to have fled to Mexico is now being investigated by the Eastside Narcotics Task Force for money laundering and selling heroin through various drug runners in the area. A confidential informant directed a Redmond Police detective with the task force to Ricardo Ricky Ramacho II in December, stating they’d routinely purchased heroin from the former King County resident through various drug runners, according to an affidavit for search warrant. Ramacho was charged in 2010 with being a part of an identity theft ring at a Tukwila Wendy’s restaurant and alleged to have conspired with a coworker to use a credit card skimming machine to steal customers’ information and make more than $75,000 in fraudulent purchases. He is believed to have fled to Mexico to avoid the charge and is still wanted

on an active King County felony warrant. Court documents state the task force and Washington State Patrol troopers staged a controlled drug purchase with an alleged runner in Renton, arresting a 27-year-old Renton man, who was found in possession of 58 grams of heroin. The task force found more than $44,000 in heroin sales were placed into multiple Wells Fargo accounts for Ramacho by the alleged drug runner from Nov. 30 to when he was arrested less than a month later, according to documents. The task force served a search warrant for five Wells Fargo bank accounts at the Bellevue Way branch belonging to several individuals that allowed for the seizure of those accounts based on evidence of being used for laundering drug money. Police report the investigation is ongoing and will more than likely involve federal agencies at some point.


aybe you’ve seen this commercial on TV:  Christie Brinkley and Chuck Norris – Beauty and the Beast — team up to show off their buff bodies and persuade viewers to buy one of the machines they’re exercising on. Three other women and I have been using similar machines at the Bellevue Y, as we follow orders belted out by Chrissy Mahan, a drill sergeant disguised as a fitness trainer. I don’t remember what the machines are called, but a woman I see often at the Y asked me if I’d been on “The Rack” lately. My classmates welcome anyone who chooses to join the sisterhood of Friday morning sufferers. They are younger than me by 15 to 20 years.  To give them their Ann Oxrieder due, they also adjust their machines for a harder workout than mine, and, unlike me, barely sweat. Having seen my mom suffer from Alzheimer’s, I’ve worried about my brain. (Friends say I should have started

worrying sooner.) I’ve read that strenuous exercise can provide some protection against dementia, but I never did much more than walk, because I always hurt myself lifting something improperly or doing some other stupid thing around the house. I enrolled in this class by accident. The good news is that within three days of the first torturous session I could get out of bed unassisted. A few months ago Chrissy suggested I try another of her classes: “Above the Barre.” “What’s it like?” I asked. “A little like ballet.” My husband asked what was involved in this new class.   “Stretching, I imagine.”   I soon found out that the only thing stretched was the meaning of “a little like ballet.” Yes, sometimes we point our toes or stand in first position. We also bend, kick, twist and raise small weights in the air while we push, pull and pulse. And that’s the warm up. The odd thing is, that I haven’t hurt myself. I’m stronger. According to WebMD, “A lot of the problems we used to think of as being related to aging, we now know aren’t related to aging at all. They are related to disuse of the body…” These workouts are important for improving bone density, balance and, I hope, my brain. This month my doctor said I could stop taking cholesterol medication. The benefits of rigorous exercise go beyond the unseen to better defined biceps and triceps. Now if I could only locate those abs.

Bellevue College Dance Company to perform May 9-10


Marking the return of the festival to Bellevue, the Bellevue Arts Museum will host a sneak preview of the 40th Seattle International Film Festival Friday, May 2. SIFF programmers will offer highlights, trailers and early copies of the festival guide. An audience question and answer session will be held. The festival’s programming was released Wednesday at the SIFF press launch event, which held a screening of “Jimi: All Is By My Side.” The biopic, starring Outkast’s André Benjamin in the titular role, covers the early years of Jimi Hendrix’s career as a backup guitarist in the United Kingdom. Benjamin is joined by Hayley Atwell as English DJ and Hendrix muse Kathy Etchingham.

André Benjamin plays Jimi Hendrix in “JIMI: All Is By My Side,” alongside Hayley Atwell as Kathy Etchingham. FILM FOOTAGE, Open Road Films The film was written and directed by John Ridley, fresh off his Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar win for 2013’s “12 Years A Slave.” This year’s programming will screen 435 films, comprised of 198 feature films, 60 documentaries, 163 shorts and 14 archival films. “Obama Mama,” a documentary about Stanley Ann Dunham prominently featuring her life and education on Mercer Island, will have its world premiere at SIFF. The film was produced and directed by Vivian Norris.

Archival films will include the 1919 silent war drama “J’accuse,” the 1976 cult musical “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” — which premiered at the first SIFF — and the 2005 Joss Whedon “Firefly” conclusion, “Serenity.” The preview will be held from 7:458:45 p.m. Seating is limited to the first 80 arrivals. Admission is free, with free admission to the museum. Daniel Nash: 425-453-4290;

room despite the entreaties of Aunt May (Sally Field). He’s given welcome few MOVIE goofy grace notes with girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), but most of the time we’re watching his computer generated altar ego swing seamlessly through Manhattan. The dazzling visual FX have advanced so far from the Sam Raimi pictures that most viewers won’t notice Garfield’s absence. Everything slowly builds, after a zingy first hour, to a twopart finale that’s more coded than directed. Where are the actors? No one cares. Neither do Garfield, Stone, their castmates, or director Marc Webb, who came to the franchise following his gossamer rom-com “(500) Days of Summer.” Returning from Part I, Webb keeps the tone light, puts a cap on Garfield’s sulking and limits the inside jokes. The plot and dialogue are elementary — subtitles not required anywhere on the planet. There’s no sex and hardly any blood to be found in Gwen and Peter’s adventures; these two collegians have a wholesome, early-’60s optimism matching the teen superhero’s Comics Code origins. Both love science with an earnest, Space Age fervor: Gwen talks about a prospective Oxford scholarship with the giddiness of a girl showing off her new nail polish. Amid this big satisfying bucket of popcorn, one appreciates the burnt kernels and flowerings of the actors’ careers. Unquestionably on their way up are Stone and Dane DeHaan (as Peter’s pal and secret nemesis Harry Osborn). On his way down is Jamie Foxx, barely recognizable as the phosphorescent blue Electro.

roles are Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz (as Peter’s parents in an extended action prologue), Chris Cooper (spot the cameo . . . ), Colm Feore (playing an oily corporate Iago), Denis Leary (g-g-g-g-ghost!) and Paul Giamatti (“Sure, what the hell, I’ll shave my head to play a Russian goon”). Garfield’s stock is more of a hold than a buy; after 2016’s series-ender, he’ll need to tack sharply toward Spandex-free waters. Given the money invested in Spidey’s aerial ballets with the camera (totally untethered, as in “Gravity”), it’s nice to see the budget padded with so many pros. While this enjoyable sequel is no “Gravity,” it’s worth the 3-D IMAX ticket price. The movie was made grand for the purpose of export. Peter jokes with Gwen about following her to London, but why stop there? Kill the nagging Aunt May already and give that parochial kid a passport. The Eiffel Tower, pyramids, and Great Wall await.

A little word filled with so much love

“Mommy” is just a small, two-syllable word, and yet it is so important to every one of us. Often the first word spoken by babies, “Mommy” represents the magical heart of the ever-expanding universe of young children. The relationship between a child and its mother or mother figure cannot be compared to any other human relationship. In the best of worlds, “Mommy” evokes gentleness and firmness, kisses and hugs. She is the angel of the night come to rescue us from nightmares. She is the nurse who tends to scraped knees, the caregiver who dons an apron to prepare healthy meals, and the fairy who never forgets to

make you a birthday cake. She is the one who feels the pain of your heartache and who will always defend you when you’re attacked.

er than spoiling their love, this discovery is often the source of a closer relationship for adult children and their mothers. Even if your childhood was less than ideal, the affection that unites you both will only grow as you understand that your mother did the best she could with the resources she had. Make this Mother’s Day a time of gratitude. Thank your mom for guiding you and helping you become the adult you are today.

Your mother is the one who knows you best, the one who helps you overcome obstacles and dreams of a beautiful future for you. She helps you build your confidence and surpass yourself. She shows you the value of wisdom rather than misplaced pride.

Bellevue boys LAX falls to Issaquah

All-City meet gives coaches chance to reflect on track BY JOSH SUMAN BELLEVUE REPORTER

Brad Barquist and John Hill will always have a special place for the All-City meet. The only prep sporting event that includes each of the four public high schools in the district, along with students from International School, the All-City meet has been a Bellevue tradition since the current Interlake and Bellevue head track and field coaches were prep runners themselves. Each recalled the old format, which culminated with a championship session under the lights with two participants from each school per event, with a nostalgia reserved for the defining moments of sports passion. “Anyone who got to participate in that night session always looked forward to it,” Barquist said. “The city meet is one of my favorite meets, and it always has been.” For Barquist and Hill, a friendship that has endured their time as head coaches on opposing sides of Bellevue began decades earlier. It has taken them from the youth soccer field to the high school track, and even the Olympic Trials. Barquist made the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, making the U.S. National Team in the 10,000 meters, while Hill competed in the trials as a marathon runner. But his memories of training and competing with Hill

Bellevue head track and field coach John Hill, himself a Bellevue alum, has fond memories of competing during his prep days as a Wolverine, after initially wanting to head to Sammamish. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter doesn’t include results or fastest times. Instead, he said the lasting impression was the impact track and field could have in forming friendships. “I remember less about who won or lost,” Barquist said. “It is more about the great rivalries between the schools.” Hill said by the time the two reached high school, Barquist was already well known in the area for his SEE TRACK, 15

with Zach Fritz, Ryan Egland and Matt Thomas also tacking on an assist in the win. Fortier said focusing the defensive pressure on Division I bound Eric Haehl and Hank Bethke was the key to a victory. “We recognized all their goal scoring was coming from five or six yards out,” he said. “We really focused on helping down from the top.” Bellevue got two goals from both Cambell Alexieff and Bethke, but were unable to break loose, as Issaquah goalie Jordan Dondoyano finished with 10 saves. The Wolverines rebounded with a 10-1 win over crosstown Newport, behind three goals each from Joe and Hank Bethke. Bellevue hosts BothellInglemoor Friday at 7 p.m.

Bellevue faced Issaquah April 25 in a game featuring two of the top teams in the conference, and it was the Eagles leaving with the 6-5 win. The loss was the first for the Wolverines to an instate foe in more than two calendar years, and gives Issaquah the inside track to a conference championship and first round playoff bye. The Wolverines led 3-2 after the first quarter, but found themselves tied at half. Before the game, Eagles’ head coach Brandon Fortier talked about the need for his defensive unit to improve, and it put together perhaps its best performance of the year while holding Bellevue scoreless for the final 22 minutes of the game. Six different players scored a goal for Issaquah,

Bellevue boys, girls shine at invitational BY JOSH SUMAN BELLEVUE REPORTER

Bellevue senior sprinter Budda Baker took three individual events, and also helped the host Wolverines to a victory in the 400 meter relay, as coach John Hill’s boys team beat out a field of nearly three dozen teams to win the Bellevue Invitational. Baker, widely regarded as the state’s top football prospect in the Class of 2014 and a University of Washington commit, ran a time of 10.79 seconds to finish just in front of teammate Isaiah Gilchrist in the 100 meters, with senior Max Richmond fifth in the event. He came back to take the 200 meters in front of a potential future teammate on the collegiate gridiron in Eastlake senior Troy Lewis, running 22.13 to finish in finish in front of the field. Baker was not done, winning the long jump with a mark of 23-03.75, and helping Bellevue to a time of 42.24 in the 400 meter relay, good enough to edge out Eastlake and get the win. Gilchrist and the Richmond brothers were also part of that relay squad, and Gilchrist was also fourth in the 200. Sam Richmond was second in the long jump and won the 110 meter hurdles for Bellevue in 15.02, with teammate Justus Rogers fourth. Russell Addington, Thomas Leisy, Nathan Smith and Rogers were second in the 800 meter relay. Ryan Gilbert finished second in the javelin throw, just two inches behind the winner. Alex Luera was eighth in the event for Bellevue. Interlake sophomore Luke Beauchamp was sixth in the 3200 meters in a time of 9:27.14. Aaron Miller was third in the shot put for the Saints with a best throw of 47-05.50.

Bellevue’s Sam Richmond was the winner in the 110 meter hurdles, and helped the Wolverines to a relay win at the Bellevue Invite. RICK EDELMAN, Rick Edelman Photography Miller was fifth in the discus throw. Sammamish senior Zen Moore was second in the 300 meter hurdles in 40.46, and fifth in the 110 meter hurdles. Conor Lanning finished 11th in the 400 meters with a time

KingCo standings tight on diamond handled 9-0 against Mercer Island.


The regular season is coming to a close in 2A/3A KingCo, and Bellevue is back in the driver’s seat for a conference title after rebounding from losing three of four games. The Wolverines, which beat fellow frontrunner Mount Si 7-5 on Wednesday, beat Interlake 2-1 on Monday by holding the Saints to only one hit on the afternoon. Coach Pete Wilkinson’s squad has three pitchers with 15 or more innings logged on the season, and each has an earned run average under four, led by the 0.38 of junior Nick Kafer. Wins against the Wildcats, last place Liberty and Mercer Island, which also sat at 8-3 in conference play at the Reporter’s deadline, will give Bellevue a regular season title, and top seed in the KingCo tournament. The Wolverines beat Mount Si 2-0 in their first meeting, and were

The Knights, needing three wins in their final three games to have any chance of claiming a division title, meet first place Skyline May 2 before finishing the regular season next week against Garfield. The 4A KingCo tournament begins May 10 at Woodinville High School, with the top four teams from each division vying for two automatic state berths and one crossover spot.

Interlake has dropped four consecutive on the baseball diamond, and is headed to the fourth or fifth seed in the 3A KingCo tournament at Ban-

Each of the six 3A classified teams in KingCo will take part in the postseason tournament, with the champion earning the league’s automatic 3A state tournament bid. The second place finisher will earn a crossover spot, and the right to play a Metro League foe for a spot at state. The Totems will miss out on a playoff berth, with Lake Washington poised to take the conference’s only 2A bi-district spot.

Chris Halamek was ninth in the discus. Interlake was 15th in the team scoring, with Sammamish 18th and Newport 27th. The Wolverine girls finished in third in the team scoring, led by the second place finish of senior Isabelle Butterfield in the 100 meters. Butterfield ran 12.43 and finished just fourth hundredths of a second behind Rainier Beach senior Tanisha Scott. She was eighth in the 200 meters in 26.54. Junior Claire Wendle finished eighth in the 400 meters in 1:02.64, and sophomore Katherine Penner was fifth in the 800.

Karisa Wu was fifth in the triple jump. Candace Ho finished third in the pole vault. Newport was 10th in the team scoring, with Interlake 12th. Jackson took the team win, just in front of Eastlake.


competitive exploits as a runner. “The best part was making that lifelong connection,” Hill said. “I love this meet because it has always been the neighborhood meet.” The schools are no longer linked by classification, the meet is not the last step before the KingCo championships, and it no longer features the spectacle of a nighttime final session. But for Barquist and Hill, the chance to pass along the pride of running in the All-City meet is second to none. “There is always that Bellevue pride,” Barquist said. “You always want to beat the other Bellevue schools.” The latest version of the All-City meet saw the Wolverines dominate the

Budda Baker, Isaiah Gilchrist and Max Richmond took the top three spots in the 100 meter dash, while Isabelle Butterfield, Sabrina Mohazzabfar and Eden Fox did the same for the girls. Fox finished in front of a pair of Sammamish runners in the 200, with Marissa Therriault and Lindsey Vander Molen second and third respectively. Newport’s Connor Baumann took the 200 meters, while Melody Blake won the girls 800 for the Knights. Interlake sophomore Luke Beauchamp was the winner in the 1,600, while freshman Gabriella Frost brought home a win in the discus competition for the Saints. 4A state contender Chris Halamek won the shot put and discus for Newport.

Infinity takes fourth at National Science Bowl BY DANIEL NASH BELLEVUE REPORTER

Science Infinity Club took fourth place at the National Science Bowl middle school competition, held in Washington, D.C., from April 24 to Monday, April 28. The Bellevue-based club, with students from around western Washington and the Pacific Northwest, beat Hopkins Junior High to make it to the semifinals, before taking a loss to Takoma Park Middle School. The Greater Boston Science & Math Team were the ultimate victors. “I feel really happy,” Neha Nagkevar said. “It was fun. We were kind of hoping we would win, but I think we did a good job.” The Science Infinity competitors were Sagarika Samavedi of Odle Middle School, Dhruvik Parikh of Gateway Middle School in Everett, Neha Nagvekar of Redmond Middle School, Rahul Chaliparambil of Chief Kanim Middle School in Fall City and Veenadhari Kollipara of Highland

Middle School. Their coach was Renuka Vallarapu. The National Science Bowl is a “game show” quiz competition challenging students to train themselves for rapid recall of facts across a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines. The competition is hosted by the United States Department of Energy. During the competition, the team was able to see the U.S. Capitol’s monuments and tour the White House. But for Nagkevar, the memorable part of the trip came back to the sciences. “I liked looking at the monuments and visiting the White House, but I think my favorite part was visiting the Natural History Museum,” she said. “It was really great seeing the bones of the T-Rex.” In interviews this week, Nagkevar, Chaliparambil and Kollipara said they planned to try out for high school division Science Bowl.

Kathy Lambert to speak at domestic violence fundraiser Victims of domestic violence face a near impossible choice: stay in an abusive relationship, or leave and risk being homeless. “It’s true,” says King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert. “I am a survivor of domestic violence. I was afraid to stay and afraid to leave.” For Lambert, the turning point came when she was left for dead. “I knew I had to create a safety plan to escape for my children and me, and when the time was right, we left. It takes a tremendous amount of help and encouragement to leave and start over,” said Lambert, who represents District 3 on the council. To support that effort, Lambert will speak May 3 at the World of Hope Gala and Auction the primary fundraiser for LifeWire, which provides a lifeline for thousands of survivors trying to leave a violent relationship. “The emergency services, safe shelter and housing support we provide has a profound impact on the families that can access them, but insufficient funding leaves far too many people without the resources they desperately need,” said Barbara Langdon, LifeWire executive director. For every person who finds shelter in the agency's emergency housing, 25 must keep calling back until space become available. “When survivors and their children are unable to access safe and stable housing and advocacy services, their lives and the safety of our community is at risk,” Langdon said. And, the ability to provide help is becoming more

difficult. Last year LifeWire reported a 22 percent increase in the number of Eastside residents in need of direct services, Langdon said. The event, which will be hosted by KOMO 4 News anchor Molly Shen, will include a wine and beer reception, silent auction, four-course dinner, Kathy Lambert entertainment and dancing. “The live auction action is incredibly fun and unforgettable,” said Jim and Barb Barnyak, auction honorary co-chairs. “We will be encouraging high-energy bidding on fantastic travel destination packages, unique getaways, and other items not otherwise available for purchase.” Included in the program will be the presentation of the Norm Maleng Award, honoring Stephen Norman, King County Housing Authority Executive Director, for his years of work to create systems change at King County Housing Authority, Building Changes and the King County Interagency Council on Homelessness.

emption," said Sandstrom of the no net loss requirement. "So, individual demonstration of no net loss is not required for shoreline residential development or for most permits that are issued as shoreline substantial development permits." That does not mean the city will not need to ensure there is no net loss of ecological function, she told council, but that it will not need to be proven independently by the permit applicant. The project would be checked against current regulations that should result in no net loss. Bulkheads — vertical concrete barriers along shorelines — will not be allowed to be replaced under the shoreline plan, which instead favors a rocky slope. Bulkheads, said Sandstrom, negatively affect wave reflection. Bulkheads would need to be determined the only feasible option in order to be used. Sandstrom said another concern is that the plan proposes residential setbacks of 25 feet, which is less than the existing median setback of 50 feet for Lake Sammamish and Lake Washington. "The potential for houses moving closer to the shoreline has potential impacts in terms of water quality, moving pollutant generating surfaces closer to the shoreline," she said. Should redevelopment of properties occur using a 25foot setback, Sandstrom said there is also the potential of obstructing the views from other properties that are 50 feet from the shoreline. One option proposed to prevent this is a common line or streamline setback, which would require a new or redeveloped property to use the average setback of the two properties adjacent to it.

Council has lots of questions about shoreline plan BELLEVUE REPORTER

Bellevue councilmembers had more questions than answers by the end of Monday's third round of informational sessions provided by staff about the progress of creating a shoreline master plan the city hopes will pass state muster. The City Council was updated Monday on the cumulative impact analysis and how Bellevue's plan will attempt to satisfy a requirement that no net loss of ecological functions occur during future development and redevelopment along the city's jurisdictional shorelines. This came ahead of a May 5 public hearing for the city's shoreline master plan, which will eventually go to the Washington Department of Ecology for final approval. Sarah Sandstrom, fisheries biologist for the Watershed Company, told councilmembers "no net loss" goes further than just ecological functions of a shoreline, and includes also preserving shoreline views for residents and assessing the amount of reasonable development that could occur in the next 20 years along Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish. With a majority of Bellevue's shorelines already developed, Sandstrom said residential redevelopment will likely be the most common occurrence, alongside new singlefamily development. The plan involves taking a qualitative look at the issue of net loss, she said, as it's hard to quantify restoration when a dock, for example, requires a certain amount of native vegetation to offset its impact as part of an "ecological tradeoff." "Shoreline residential development falls under an ex-

Whether all of the effort being put into the plan will satisfy how the DOE defines "no net loss" may only be known once the shoreline master plan is submitted. According to Richard Settle, an attorney specializing in environmental and land use law with Foster Pepper PLLC, "no net loss" is a new and ambiguous concept for Washington. While the DOE requires no net loss of existing ecological functions, Settle said that implies a tradeoff of development and restoration. He said there's also an assumption that restoration doesn't have to be immediate, and could take as long as 20 years depending on the development. He added there's also confusion as to how far back in time restoration is supposed to match up with shoreline conditions. "It's definitely not pre-European discovery," he said. Councilmember Kevin Wallace expressed his irritation that the council has been briefed three times on shoreline master plan development, however, confusion about meeting DOE standards remains. He added there also needs to be more done to address private property rights in the plan. "That is not helpful in deciding how to regulate someone's private property, whether there is a net loss of ecological functions," he said. "So, I just want to lodge my personal frustration. I'm just stunned that every jurisdiction in the state has to go through this and do this and in 2014 the state of the law on this is so unclear. … What we're basically looking at is someone's opinion," he said.

Newport High students move on to national rocketry contest BY DANIEL NASH BELLEVUE REPORTER

Five Newport High School students are moving on to the national finals of the Team America Rocketry Challenge. The Newport Rocketry Club passed the regional qualifying round — participated in by more than 700 teams — to advance to the finals, to be held May 10 at Great Meadow field in The Plains, Va. The competition requires teams to build a model rocket that can ascend exactly 825 feet and return to earth within 48-50 seconds without damaging a payload of two raw eggs. The Newport Rocketry Club will be attending nationals in its first year of operation. Freshman George Eller asked

teacher Richard Kilcup to become club adviser at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year. "I thought it would be a great way to build leadership skills and have some freshmen foster friendships," Kilcup said. "Little did I know that (they) would take the club all the way to Washington, D.C., for the national finals." Eller said he was amazed at the club's ability to learn the science behind rocketry and work past inclement weather. The club will compete for $60,000 in scholarships and prizes, as well as the opportunity to compete internationally at the Farnborough International Air Show in England. The Rocketry Challenge, sponsored by the Aerospace Industries Association, is in its 12th year of operation. Daniel Nash: 425-453-4290;

The facility will have three full-sized gyms, giving the club the flexibility to offer indoor sports including basketball, volleyball, pickle ball, badminton, indoor mini-soccer, etc. COURTESY ART

Boys/Girls Club breaks ground for new facility The Boys and Girls Clubs of Bellevue and their sponsors broke ground on a new field house Wednesday, April 16 at Hidden Valley Park. Under an agreement with the city of Bellevue, the club will design, construct and operate the gymnasium in exchange for public benefits. The city and club will share equally in the cost to construct an additional athletic field and site improvements, at a total cost of up to $5 million. Some of the expansions include three full-sized gyms that can be divided into four junior high courts, giving the club the flexibility to offer indoor sports including basketball, volleyball, pickle ball, badminton, indoor mini-soccer, etc. There will even be batting cages for baseball and a concession stand to open to outdoor field area. The doors on the south side will be oversized so that they open up onto the areas adjacent to the large field. The city will have use of gym and classroom for its programs during non-club times at no-cost, allowing out to run a wide variety of programs for adults and seniors while ensuring all Bellevue youth are served regardless of their ability to pay. There will be plenty of outdoor spaces where kids and families can congregate before and after games and during other special events. Along with the city, the club plans to offer the spaces to other groups during non-club activity times. The goal is to have the building in use as much as possible.

Irene Johnson

Irene Johnson, 87, of North Bend, WA, passed away on Thursday, April 24, 2014. She was born in Bellevue, WA, on March 9, 1927, to the late George and Olive Kardong. Irene inherited her love of music, and athletics from her father, singing in trios from the time she was in 6th grade, through her college years, and participating in many sports, being particularly fond of swimming and tennis, and later, water skiing. Irene was a 1945 graduate of Overlake High School (later, Bellevue), and attended Washington State College (later, WSU) from 1945-1947, where she studied music. A year later, while working at a drugstore soda fountain, Irene met her first husband, the late James Farmer, a lithographer. In 1948 they were married at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and in 1951, had a daughter, Christine Georgianne. They were eventually divorced, and, in 1961, Irene married her second husband, the late Jack Johnson, a pilot in the Air Force. Irene and Jack had two children, Adam Scott, and Tracie Jean. That marriage also ended in divorce, and Irene raised her three kids as a single mother, while working for many years at Newport Hills Drug, and Thompson’s Drugs in Bellevue. Irene was a loving and supportive friend to all that were blessed to know her, and will be missed greatly, and remembered fondly. Irene loved the saltwater from a very early age, and always felt rejuvenated by her treks to Ocean Shores. She loved music, and dancing, and was happiest when gathering with friends and family for celebrations, or just for fun. Along with her mother and father, Irene was predeceased by her brothers, Ray and Ed Kardong, both of Bellevue. Irene is survived by her children, Christine Roller (Todd), Scott Johnson (Zelda), and Tracie Gingrich (Brad); grandchildren, Brandon Smith (Marie), Nathan Smith, Cody Slaughter, and Sam Gingrich; great-grandchildren, Adrian and Preston Smith. The family would like to thank good friends for their love and support, and also, the staffs at Mt. Si. Transitional Health, in North Bend, and Swedish Hospital, in Issaquah, for their care and support. Irene requested that there be no funeral, or memorial service, and that, should friends desire, contributions may be sent to Providence Hospice of Seattle. 1039337

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. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. WeightsMeasures/Fire woodinformation.aspx
