FIRE STATION TAKES SHAPE New station 78 to have amenities for public, firefighters
BY LINDA BALL ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
The new Eastside Fire and Rescue fire station 78 is moving right along. Scheduled for completion in early October, Chief of Maintenance Kelly Refvem said they hope to be moved in the first part of November. Located at 20720 S.E. May Valley Road, the new station will replace the old station 78 (called the Coalfield station) at SR 900, near 164th. The district will sell that station. Refvem said station 78 serves areas in unincorporated King County up to Renton City limits, Mirrormont and Tiger Mountain. The new location, on a straight stretch of highway, is better suited to serve the areas in District 10. Refvem particularly likes the line of sight — with the straight stretch of road, when they need to tear out for an emergency, the drivers will be able to see if anyone or anything is coming. The station will be home to one engine, one aid car and EFR’s brush truck. The general contractor of the project is Corp Inc. Construction, from Salem, Ore. “We’re following many of the same (green) principles as station 72, but we’re not going for the LEED designation,” Refvem said. Station 72 in Issaquah received

LINDA BALL, Isssaquah/Sammamish Reporter. an ASHRAE award last year, described as the Oscars of engineering, for its green design. Following that example, No. 78 will have a heat pump outside, extra insulation — 11-inches in the roof — and an underground cistern to collect rainwater for washing the trucks and flushing toilets. EFR commissioners and the community wanted a public meeting room, so there will be one with a wet bar area for refreshments and two public restrooms. There are four sleeping rooms for the firefighters — each with its own bed, built-in desk and night light — two more restrooms with showers for the firefighters, a large workout room, and of course the kitchen/dining/day room. The kitchen will have three
refrigerators, one for each shift. All of the countertops and appliances are stainless steel, and all of the floors in the entire building will be polished concrete. Refvem said the reason is that those surfaces don’t harbor bacteria. Along that line, there is a decontamination room to clean blood, pathogens and dirty EMS equipment. In addition, there are sinks by the doors for the guys to wash their hands when they come in, because, after all, this is their house. “Anything we can do to keep them healthy,” Refvem said. In one of the work areas a big screen TV will be mounted on the wall — not for watching TV — but rather for pinpointing call locations on a live map from dispatch. A south facing patio will have
natural gas for a barbecue, there is a laundry room for the guys, an area for their bunker gear and extra storage. Additionally, they’ll have a room for disaster supplies including MREs and water. This station will be the “hose” station, where all new fire hoses will be stored, and damaged hose will be repaired. Outside there is a generator and enclosed trash area. The station will always have three firefighters on duty. Refvem, who started out as a volunteer when he was 18, has been a career firefighter for 33 years. He said with this station in such a beautiful rural area, they tried to make it look a bit like a farm house to fit in with the surrounding community. The station was funded by a bond issue in District 10, unincorporated King County. The way the EFR funding model works, funding for each station is based on assessed valuation of homes it serves. Station 71 in downtown Issaquah covers Tiger Mountain now, but once the new station 78 opens, Issaquah property owners will bear more of the cost of station 71 because more homeowner’s in District 10 were also paying for coverage out of 71.

In what could be an unprecedented event for the Urban Village Development Commission, the May 6 meeting that started at 8 p.m. and ended at 1 a.m. concluded in a stalemate. The discussion was a continuation of the April 15 meeting, regarding the last buildable parcels in the Talus Urban Village. Two parcels, 8 and 9, were recommended for approval by the commission, but parcel 7 was tabled until this meeting. It’s a very unpopular plat, with homeowner’s deeply concerned about drainage, landslides, steep slopes, precarious retaining walls and deforestation. The room was filled with Talus Homeowner’s waiting for their chance to speak, in what was supposed to be a two-hour meeting. Instead, Lucy Sloman, land development manager for the city, and the applicant, Triad Associates, took until 10:30 p.m. to make their presentations to the commission, explaining modifications they made to the plat, to appease Talus homeowner’s concerns. Four modifications were made to the original proposal SEE TALUS, 15

Annual ARAS drive sends 538 bikes to Ghana BY KELLY MONTGOMERY
Volunteers help disassemble a bike that was donated at the annual ARAS Foundation bike drive on May 3 at Sammamish City Hall. KELLY
The ARAS Foundation collected 538 bikes plus hundreds of bike parts at its annual drive on May 3. The items, which will support the Village Bicycle Project, are being shipped to Ghana. Mary Trask, ARAS community service director, said they had 85 volunteers helping them at Sammamish City Hall last Saturday. Their youngest volunteer was 3. “At around 4 p.m. we finished loading the cargo container and the extra bikes that didn’t fit were placed in three pick-up trucks,” Trask said. “They will be kept in Seattle stor-

age awaiting the next shipment to Africa.” Trask said this is the ninth year Sammamish has participated in a bike drive, but the Village Bicycle Project has been at it for many years. Since 1999, Village Bicycle Project has shipped more than 75,000 bikes plus thousands of bike parts to Africa, Trask said. Once the bikes are delivered, recipients are taught basic maintenance and repair skills so they are able to maintain use. Village Bicycle Project explains that bikes provide power and opportunity to people in Africa. “Improved mobility is a key to reducing poverty,” it says on their website. “In Africa, a bicycle can take a person from poverty to prosperity.”

Tempers flare at town hall meeting BY LINDA BALL ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
The issue in Talus may be about more than trees being cut down. Based on the dialogue at the May 1 town hall meeting held at Eastside Fire and Rescue’s headquarters, there is a huge disconnect between the Talus Residential Association the people who live in Talus. As promised, representatives from the city of Issaquah came to the first part of the meeting. Charlie Bush, development director for the city, and Lucy Sloman, the city’s land development manager, answered questions from Talus homeowner’s who are fed up with large native trees being cut down in the mountainside village. But, as Bush told the crowd, “Our role is to interpret the development agreement — we don’t take sides.” He said the city did approve the work, which removed approximately 22 large trees in a greenbelt behind homes on Wilderness Peak Drive. Bush said when the city heard from residents that more trees were marked to be cut down, the city ordered the work stopped. Nonetheless, the city did approve work to continue Monday, May 5. However, the Talus Residential Association sent out an email late that evening stating, “After input from those homeowners in attendance at tonight’s Town Hall meeting the Board has decided to suspend all tree removal at this time. Additional details will be released in the next week. No further tree removal will occur at this time. “Does this promote Issaquah as the city of trees?” asked homeowner Paul Boone, who was the one who called the city when the cutting started April 25. The city still administers the Talus development agreement, which expires in 2017. Sloman pointed out that approximately 460 acres were preserved in the agreement — 388 acres of Native Growth Protection Area and 71 acres of open space between development parcels. Of concern to most of the residents at the meeting is removing trees for view enhancement. Article 10.3 in the
Robin Avni speaks at the meeting, while in front of her, Stephane and Aida Taine look on. Seated next to Avni is Janet Irons, an attorney hired to represent homeowners on Wilderness Drive. LINDA BALL, Issaquah & Sammamish
development agreement states that “no tree shall be removed for the purpose of view enhancement.” However, the section only applies after the buildout period in 2017. View versus privacy is one part of the struggle. David Tall, the attorney for the Talus Residential Association, said the foundational documents have to be respected; view preservation rules exist. The houses up higher want their view, and the people below want their privacy. “It’s going to be an ongoing issue,” said Robin Avni, whose property was affected by the recent cutting. “It’s whoever has the biggest checkbook wins.” The HOA board seemed a little shell-shocked throughout the meeting. Speaking for the board most of the time, was secretary Jessica Fern. She said a view preservation request was submitted by a resident in 2013, so a rule was put into place. She claimed it was sent to all Talus residents. Fern said it was discussed at seven board meetings and three town hall meetings, “Yet somehow, we are here today. This is not something we’re proud of,” she said. George Wangersky said he reviewed all of the board min-
utes for the past year and there was not one application for view protection in the minutes. Beth Lanning with the management company said the application was in the minutes from a March 27, 2014 meeting, which have yet to gone out — eliciting moans of displeasure from the homeowners. Since April 28, a privacy rule has been added to the view preservation rule. Kelly Reed, a board-member-at-large since January of this year, said everyone was right — the communication is bad. Residents have said they don’t receive any of the blast emails the HOA sends out, and emails listed on mytalus.com for individual board members bounce back. Reed, who works for Microsoft, said he is willing to build a better website and fix the situation so everyone is on the same page, but it’s a lot of work and he needed help. Boone, who lost trees in his backyard, asked about good old-fashioned communication. “I think I deserved a knock on the door,” he said. One very angry resident said the HOA will never work because of the commercial interests in Talus — apartments and Timber Ridge (assisted living and skilled nursing) — because “a single property owner can vote hundreds of times.” “Do you feel like you’ve set this up?” he asked. “We’ll never get anywhere — this is not a good HOA.” Sloman said the city did not set up the HOA; it only required one to be set up. Still, there are more questions than answers to the tree cutting in Talus. Apparently this is not the first time something like this has happened — residents expressed concerns about slope stability with removal of large trees in the past and several homeowner’s have been concerned about drainage issues and their yards becoming swamps. “A tree is a view,” said Marilyn LaSalle. “To cut my view for somebody else’s view (isn’t right). We’re all adults — you should know if there is tree, it’s going to grow.” She spoke of being good stewards of the environment. “Alders are big nitrogen fixers,” LaSalle said. “Just because they’re ugly and scrappy, there’s a reason for them.”

OTHER VOICES This is what legacy is about
illy Frank Jr. did what most politicians find unimaginable: He cussed in public and was bracingly partial to telling the truth. Frank, the semi-nal Indian leader who went from 1960s fish-in scofflaw to salmon-saving prophet, died Monday. He was 83. The stampede of one-upping praise is well deserved, but belies the great unspoken, that Frank was an iconoclast with only a handful of non-tribal allies when he started out. “Billy was a true statesman who brought an optimistic, cando approach to environmental and natural resource challenges,” said Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson. History comes full circle. It was one of Ferguson’s predecessors, Slade Gorton, who fought against the culmination of Frank’s early activism, the 1974 Boldt decision. The Boldt narrative traces to the first tribal fish-ins in 1964 to protest the violaBilly Frank Jr. tion of indigenous treaty rights, to a 1970 Nixon Justice Department lawsuit against the state of Washington, to the Feb. 12, 1974, ruling that reaffirmed the federal treaties of 1854 and 1855. Tribal members, Judge George Boldt ruled, have the right to fish in their “usual and accustomed” places, with half of the annual catch going to treaty tribes. Politicians demagogued, giving in to code-word racism. A striking exception was Everett Rep. Lloyd Meeds, who accepted the decision, noting that tribes had the law on their side. Frank lived to mark the 40th anniversary of the Boldt decision in February as well as witness the passage this year of HB 2080, a bill that vacates the convictions of tribal activists who participated in fish-ins up to 1975. Frank bent history, even shaping our political vocabulary. As the longtime chair of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, he conceived the idea a government-to-government framework, something we take for granted. Frank also was a joy. “The best rebels are those who are happy,” journalist Mark Trahant writes of his friend. “They know they are right and convince others with their light, rather than just being an obstacle. They smile as they fight. Urging you to join along. They win you over.” — The Herald, of Everett, WA ISSAQUAH | SAMMAMISH

BC students depend on transit
etro Transit recently proposed cutting service to the busiest bus stop on the Bellevue College campus as a result of the April 22 voter decision to reject a proposition addressing transit budget shortfalls. BC students tell me this will adversely affect their ability to get to class. The cut affects our college directly, and I also worry about our rapidly growing region, reliant upon the services community colDavid Rule leges such as BC provide. Without readily available transit, many students face one more barrier to higher education – a barrier that may prove to be the final straw for some. Nearly one in three Bellevue College Students rely on transit to get to and from campus; transit as a commute share has grown nine percent in the last three years. Moreover, one in four of our students has no regular access to a car, and could be described as “transit-dependent.”
Changes to transit on the BC campus include re-routing MT bus 271 – which carries the largest ridership on our campus with over 900 rides daily – to stop on 148th Ave. SE. Stopping on busy 148th will delay bus riders and personal vehicles and lose fare-paying riders. This reroute will put some of our most vulnerable, evening and disabled students at risk as they face a halfmile walk to the new bus stop. Also, many students work multiple jobs and without frequent and reliable service, I fear they may be forced to make hard choices between jobs and

education. Investing in transit service is investing in our future. College students are tomorrow’s skilled workforce and as King County grows we must continue to create opportunities for people to receive a quality education. Most students of Washington’s community and technical colleges are within five-, 10- or 15-minute travel zones, making transit a cost effective way to get to campus as well as freeing up roads for commercial purposes. Transit fundamentally improves access to higher education. King County’s community colleges rely on transit to get students to school. Our colleges do not stand alone; we rely on our communities and we rely on transit. Without it, we cannot serve students nor meet our region’s workforce needs. I encourage every citizen to participate in upcoming public hearings on Metro’s proposals and join a vigorous debate that can air all sides of this serious issue.

Skyline Rocketry Club to compete at national meet Students need to send eggs aloft, return safe
BY KELLY MONTGOMERY ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
For the third time in four years, the Skyline High School Physics/Rocketry Club has qualified for Team American Rocketry Challenge, the national competition, which will take place outside of Washington, D.C., on May 10. The club is eager to beat its 2013 score, which ranked it the 71st best rocket-launching team in the country. The Team America Rocketry Challenge is an annual competition sponsored by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA)
and challenges students in grades 7–12 to work in groups to design, construct and launch a rocket built to specific requirements and to meet specific goals. The requirements and goals change each year. Participants, in addition to bragging rights, are competing for $60,000 in scholarships and prizes. Rebecca Fowler, physics club advisor, explained that this year’s competition goal was to fly two raw hens’ eggs in a rocket, with a mass of less than 650 grams, to an altitude of exactly 825 feet and stay in the air (from lift-off to landing) for 48 to 50 seconds. Skyline placed in the top 100, earning its spot in the national finals. Fowler said that this year's qualifying team includes five seniors and three sopho-
Ten make list for pot shop Out of 19 original applicants, 10 recreational marijuana entrepreneurs made the list for the one recreational marijuana retail shop allowed in Issaquah. Not that anyone will be opening their doors soon, since Issaquah has a moratorium in place until July 7. The apparent winner is Weedhouse, with a proposed location of 255 NE Juniper. Right now, the business owner is more than likely proceeding with licensing through the Liquor Control Board, said Jason Rogers, associate planner for the city of Issaquah, who has been the city’s go-to guy on the recreational marijuana issue.
“That will take awhile,” Rogers said. “They (LCB) hope to release the first licenses in July. Nothing is going to happen in the interim.” Rogers said any applicants who made it through the lottery can come to the May 13 Land and Shore committee meeting where the recreational marijuana issue will be on the agenda. The runners up in the lottery, in the event Weedhouse doesn’t vet, are Doremouse Organics (two locations), Reinvent (two locations), High Society, Exponential2 (two locations), Modern Creations and The Cannabis Depot.
mores. Three of the seniors have been on the team since they were freshmen and it is the third time they have qualified for the national competition. "The kids have been working on the design since the beginning of the year," Fowler said. "Most of first semester was filled with designing and doing computer simulation tests, as well as ordering materials. Just before the end of first semester, they began the actual construction of the rocket and it was completed by the end of February."
Fowler said they had some challenges due to weather conditions, but they did get several launches off the ground with scores that were good enough for an invitation to the national fly-offs. The rocketry club left Thursday night, with the national competition Saturday. Fowler said that Skyline is one of two schools in the state to qualify this year. The other is Newport High School in Bellevue. Kelly Montgomery: 425-391-0363; email@example.com

Loss of federal waiver to impact Lake Washington School District BY KELLY MONTGOMERY ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
the best way to care for our neighbors is to be in the neighborhood.
Issaquah Primary Care Clinic We think about you
• Same-day appointments • New patients welcome
The Lake Washington School District will have to set aside $326,573 in federal funds next year and lose control of how it is used in the district following the loss of a waiver to the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) act. The loss came as the last Legislature couldn’t agree on using student test scores as a criteria to measure teacher and principal evaluations. Such scores are a requirement in the NCLB act. The state has been operating under a conditional waiver for the past two school years. While the district won’t lose the money, it will not have control over how it is used. The money must now be put towards private tutoring or transportation to a better performing school, so that students are still able to meet academic standards. However, Shannon Parthemer, Lake Washington School District Community Relations and Communications Coordina-
tor, said the funds that will be set aside by the district are for Title I schools only, and there are no Title 1 schools in Sammamish. "There will be no financial impacts for schools in Sammamish," she said. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn said he's disappointed, but not surprised by the federal action. “There is widespread acknowledgment that NCLB isn’t working," he said. "Congress has failed to change the law at the federal level, so states are forced to come up with workarounds.” One of those would be to have included student test scores as one of many elements used to evaluate teachers and principals. Dorn said that in these past two years, Washington state has been doing great work under the waiver agreement. “We have developed our own system that more accurately reflects the progress being made by schools across the state," he said.

Changes coming for LWSD schools after defeat of two bond measures
The failure of a bond measure in the The Lake Washington School District will be felt in the next school year in Sammamish. The district is planning to send Sammamish-area students entering the middle school Quest program in 2014-15 to Evergreen Middle School instead of Redmond Middle School. In addition, a districtwide process will begin to review and adjust all school attendance boundaries, for implementation in 2015-16, in light of the defeat of bond measures that would have added and remodeled a number of district schools. “We have a number of actions planned for next year, many of which would have been needed no matter the outcome of the bond measures,” noted Dr. Traci Pierce, LWSD superintendent. “However, without the potential of new school buildings in two years, we
will also have to determine additional actions for the future.” The district also plans to move the Mead Elementary Learning Center program for special education students to McAuliffe Elementary School and begin a new Quest program at Blackwell Elementary School, serving Quest students who would previously have gone to Alcott Elementary School. The district-wide process to adjust attendance boundaries is expected to rebalance enrollment. The goal is to maximize the use of current classroom space by moving students from overcrowded schools to schools that have some space available or where additional portable classrooms could be added, the district said in a news release. The district currently has more students than permanent classroom space and some school campuses cannot accommodate additional
portable classrooms. A process to determine the new boundaries will begin in the fall of 2014, with board approval of new boundaries occurring in time for 2015-2016 Kindergarten enrollment, which will take place in February 2015. The boundary process may leave the current temporary boundary changes in tact, or further modificatons to those school boundaries could take place. Other actions that may be needed between 2015 and 2017 include limits to all day Kindergarten, continued limits to variance approvals, moving district programs to other schools, adding portables and modifying facilities at Juanita High School in order to increase capacity. At its May 5 work session, the district’s board of directors discussed potential funding for some of the items called for in these actions. A total of $40 million in unallo-
cated funds is available from bonds sold from the 2006 measure, as well as unspent state construction funding assistance. Using funds from either source would require that the board hold a public hearing and vote to repurpose the funds. The board had previously indicated that unspent funds from the 2006 bond measure could be used to support pool and athletic field partnerships, if a bond measure passed. Board members at the work session noted that this interest was contingent on passing a bond, which did not happen. “Unfortunately, we need that money now for classroom space,” noted board president Jackie Pendergrass.

"Polyester doesn't breathe, and wool is itchy," he said. "When I discovered bamboo and how well it performs, I was really interested." He started out selling a line called Outdoor Panda at markets all over the Puget Sound area. Now, he's expanded his business plan, opening a retail store — Love Bamboo — in Issaquah's Gilman Village. He is carrying well-known brand Cariloha, from Utah, and goods from several local importers. Bed sheets, towels and crib sheets are by Bed Voyage of Woodinville. Women's clothing, and soft fleece blankets are supplied by Wayi of Kirkland. Liu also has become a dealer for Greenington bamboo furniture from Kent, where he and his family live. Sleek and modern, he said most people don't even notice the furniture because they are so distracted by the clothes. Fabric made from bamboo has to be blended with another fabric to hold its shape, he said. Most of the lines he carries are viscose made from bamboo with five percent spandex. "It doesn't get as cold when you're wet, compared to cotton," he said. "Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial, antimicrobial (doesn't hold odor), it wicks, it's breathable and hypoallergenic." He is also proud of the fact that bamboo is a green, sustainable product. No pesticides are used in growing bam-

boo, it has a low water footprint, there is no need to reseed and it makes for very sturdy product. Everything in the store is made from bamboo. There are bamboo baby wipes and toilet paper. One product, Bambooee, is a roll of reusable paper towels. "You can wash them up to 100 times," Liu said. "One roll replaces 286 rolls of normal paper towels." Liu said his wife, Melissa Liu, family and friends help out, but for the most part, he's the one in the store. He opened April 19. The store is open seven days a week, Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m, and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. It is located at 317 N.W. Gilman Blvd., Suite 5.

‘Neighbors’ fun, but formulaic film BY BRIAN MILLER
What’s happening in the world of art
WSU band to perform at IHS
SPECIAL TO THE REPORTER
If his buddy James Franco can star in a current Broadway revival of “Of Mice and Men,” is it possible for Seth Rogen to elevate his profile beyond that of schlubby stoner? He lost weight for The Green Hornet, but no one cared. This fun, but formulaic comedy, pits him, as a married homeowner MOVIE and new father, against Zac Efron, playing the rival patriarch of a rowdy frat house next door. We’ve got to get Delti Psi put on probation, so our baby can sleep at night! The conflict writes itself, and you really do feel these two likeable stars could do more — if not Steinbeck, then something that moves them against type. Efron, once the Disney idol, is certainly capable of undermining his image (and embracing it, in several shirtless scenes). When Rogen and wife (Rose Byrne) trick him into a fight with a loyal frat bro (Dave Franco), pushing and shoving give way to the dreaded mutual testicle grab. Efron stares at his foe and declares, with berserk conviction, “I’ll hold onto your balls forever!”
The Washington State University Symphonic Wind Ensemble will make a special appearance at Issaquah High School’s spring concert on Wednesday, May 14, at 7 p.m. Also performing are Issaquah High School’s Jazz, Concert Band and Wind Ensemble. The event will place in the Issaquah High School Theater, 700 2nd Ave. N.E. The event is free and open to the public.

He’s committed to playing the handsome dunce, to the warmhearted raunch that’s the hallmark of Apatow-land (Nicholas Stoller, of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, directs). Rogen is a veteran of that milieu,
again inhabiting the familiar role of the shambling, genial dude who doesn’t want to be an adult. When he and the wife get into a fight, they debate who ought to be the “Kevin James” — i.e. the irresponsible partner — in their marriage. But, really, the term they ought to be using is “Seth Rogen.” And that’s the problem with this movie’s ambition: It simply lets Rogen be Rogen. Brian Miller: email@example.com
Sammamish Commons will present its next art exhibit, “Kinfolk,” a series of colorful porcelain enamel on steel portraits. The show will run from May 12 through Aug. 15 at Sammamish City Hall. David Berfield, a longtime artist from Bainbridge Island, uses themes derived from family photographs and kinship gathered from the city’s community events archive. The exhibit can be seen at from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at City Hall, 801 228th Ave. S.E.
Different take on Mormon production
Local artist Dana Cardon and local teens want to tell what they say is the true stories of the Book of Mormon, not the satirical version made popular on Broadway. Their effort, “Built on the Rock: A Book of Mormon Journey,” will be performed May 9-10 in the Lyceum Theatre at Skyline High School. A total of 250 teens, ages 14-18, are featured in the production, which is choreographed using Mayan and Aztec dances native to the Book of Mormon lands, as well as ballet and interpretive dances. Performances are 7 p.m. May 9 and 11 a.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. May 10. The performances are free and open to the public. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis.

Former Eastside Catholic School vice principal, Mark Zmuda, will become associate principal this fall at Mercer Island High School. Zmuda's hiring was approved May 1. “I am very excited to be working with the Mercer Island School District,” Zmuda said while addressing the board before its approval. “I value education very highly and I come from a family of educators, so I’m looking forward to continuing with education, hopefully here at the Mercer Island School District for
quite some time.” The former Eastside Catholic vice principal was selected from a group of five semifinalists, all from the Puget Sound region, that had previous administrative experience. “As I interviewed Mark... what impressed me was Mark’s knowledge of best practices and his commitment to ensure that every child is successful, every student is successful,” said Superintendent Dr. Gary Plano. In her remarks to the board, Mercer Island principal Vicki Puckett saod Puckett is “committed, 15-years of education, and we’re looking so forward to having Mark be a complete

SERVING THE SEATTLE EASTSIDE SINCE 1994
My Mama Said I Was Crazy...
...when I told her I’m selling thousands of plants this Mother’s Day for only $4.97.
I’m going to run through the list of the plants that I have for $4.97, so grab a red or blue pen so you can circle the things that you are interested in. Let’s start with the Japanese Red Maples. These are 2 to 3 feet tall, with sturdy trunks and brand new fancy red leaves. (I wonder where else you are going to find Japanese Red Maples for $4.97.) We have lots of trees for $4.97. Pink Dogwoods, Eastern Redbuds, Paperbark Birch, and Vine Maples. These guys are all tough as nails, and just the right size for a small yard. If you’re looking for something bigger, we’ve got Curly Willow. That’s the one they sell for $1 a branch at the Flower and Garden Show. Really? Mama thinks I’m crazy for selling the entire tree for only $4.97. Shrubs? We’ve got shrubs. Your mom will love Miss Kim Lilac! The Doublefile Viburnum is starting to bloom. Look for these as you come down the driveway – you’ll know which ones I mean. The Nugget Ninebark is just as gold as gold can be and really pops when planted next to it’s cousin Diabolo Ninebark - or Helmond Pillar Barberry that holds it’s own against dogs and kids with bicycles. We’ve got some pretty cool grasses - Orange Sedge, Ice Dance Grass, and Blue Fescue. Mom won’t ask you to mow these grasses.
Remember, all these plants are $4.97 each.
You’re circling what you want, right?
Looking for something for shade? We’re all over it with Hostas. I don’t even know how many different varieties we have. Some are green and white, some are green and gold, there’s some blue, some that are a couple different colors of green, and some are just plain green. We are bound to have a color combination that your mother will love.
We also have Gold Mound and Neon Flash Spirea, Mexican Orange Blossom, Dwarf Arctic Willow, Snowmound, and Pink Queen Potentillas.
If Mom’s yard has serious shade but she still wants flowers, you’re good to go with Pink Astilbe. These little guys are so happy in the shade that I think they’d bloom in her front hall closet.
Speaking of pink, we have pink dogwoods for only $4.97. If you really want to show mom how special she is, we have a rare dogwood called ‘Radiant Rose’ that has flowers so pink, Mama will think she’s died and gone to heaven when she sees it in bloom. I checked on the Internet and couldn’t find ‘Rose’ for much less than eighty bucks. That is way too much. I want to sell them for $49.97. This may sound pricy but isn’t your mother worth it?
Does Mama need groundcovers? We’re all over it. Golden Creeping Jenny, Bearberry Cotoneaster, Sweet Woodruff, White Diamond and Dragon’s Blood Sedum. The Mahogany Bugleweed and Lithodora are in bloom right now. Emerald Gaiety Euonymus looks terrific with the deep burgundy of Coral Bells.
We have other fancy dogwoods starting at $9.97. We have some with green and white leaves, gold and white leaves that take on a rosy blush later in the summer, and we even have one with red flowers. Come autumn, their leaves all look spectacular and they have little red berries that birds just love.
Maybe Mom will like to grow her own fresh herbs this summer to season Sunday dinner. We have Golden Oregano, Rosemary, and Lemon Thyme. We also have Lavender that Grandma can use to make potpourri. If your mother’s yard has lots of sunshine, we’ve got flowers for her all summer long. The Candytuft is blooming right now, and Jethro Tull Coreopsis looks like it should have flowers starting next week. We have a couple different kinds of Daylilies. The Siberian Irises should start blooming next week also. It’s gonna be pretty showy around here. Let’s give your mom her own show!
We also have bargains on Japanese Weeping Maples for only $19.97. They aren’t perfect but with a little mother’s love they can be by next year. Mama will go gaga over the ‘Rising Sun’ redbud, a new introduction that slowly grows to about 10 feet. Pink flowers on the trunk and branches in spring. Then, leaves in shades of gold, apricot, and green in summer. All this for $39.97. Does Mom have a fence in need of a vine? We’ve got those too. I’ll bet she’d like a fragrant jasmine - or maybe some clematis with big bright flowers. They’re all $14.97.
If your mom loves magnolias, we have lots to choose from. Judy Zuk and Butterflies magnolias have yellow flowers, Royal Star magnolias have white flowers, Jane magnolias are pinky-purple on the outside and white on the inside, and Vulcan magnolias steal the show with their deep red blossoms. I’ll bet your mama loves peonies. Who doesn’t? We have peonies that are 3 feet tall, and loaded with buds just ready to explode. In a week or so there’ll be enough cut flowers to fill all of her vases. Mom, bring your kids and show them what you want for Mother’s Day. Kids, bring your mama and make her feel like a kid in a candy store. At $4.97 everyone will be happy – except maybe my mama who still thinks I’m crazy. Come see us – we’re The Daily Plant-It and we sell beautiful plants at affordable prices. We’re open FRIDAY, SATURDAY and SUNDAY May 9, 10, and 11 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. We’re at 10603 Issaquah Hobart Rd, Issaquah. That’s about a mile south of Issaquah (98027 if you’re putting it into your GPS.) There’s a yellow sign that says TODAY, HUGE $4.97 PLANT SALE, west side of the road. Come on down the driveway, we’ve got plenty of parking right near the plants. We’re open every weekend this spring, but it’s first come, first served, and some of these little beauties will go fast.
She told me I was nuts for selling Japanese Red Maples for only $4.97, but I told her, “It’s my nursery. Just think of it as my gift to children who need an affordable gift for their mamas.”

Skyline leads pack into 4A KingCo tourney BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@BELLEVUEREPORTER.COM
The 4A KingCo baseball tournament begins Saturday at Woodinville High School, with two automatic state berths up for grabs, as well as a crossover spot against a Wesco foe for the district’s final entry into the round of 16. Skyline and Eastlake meet at 1 p.m., while Issaquah takes on Redmond at 7 p.m. The Reporter takes a look at each of the three local teams looking for a KingCo title.

hopes to go the distance once again. “My goal is to shut Eastlake down,” he said. “We missed the tournament last year, and to be able to make a run senior year would be huge.”
Eastlake (11-9, 7-7), Fourth Place, Crest Division The Wolves lost the regular season finale 5-3 to rival Redmond to finish as the fourth seed from the division headed into Saturday’s opening round.
Senior Mick Vorhof will toe the rubber for the second time this year opposite Lunde, after the Spartans earned a 6-3 win in the only meeting between the two during the regular season. “We put the bat on the ball against Lunde before and I think we can do it again,” Vorhof said. “Our guys just have to stay relaxed and not jump out of their shoes. He’s going to come at us and when he does, guys have to connect.” Head coach Kevin Agnew said Vorhof, who sports an impressive 1.26 ERA in 50 innings this season, gives his team a legitimate shot to unseat Skyline and move one game away from Eastake’s first state playoff spot since 2003. “I think it is going to be another great outing on Saturday,” Agnew said. “He is going to bring his lunchpail, go to work and do his thing.”
Issaquah (12-8, 7-8), Fourth Place, Crown Division Three losses in its final four games ended Issaquah’s hopes of winning a division title, but left them with the fourth and final seed and a date with Crown champ Redmond in the final game of the day at Woodinville. “I want them to loosen up and swing the bat like we’re capable of,” head coach Rob Reese said. “I think eveyone just tried to do a little too much.” The Mustangs won the only game between the two during the regular season 9-0.

Eastlake girls finish perfect on course after win over Redmond BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@BELLEVUEREPORTER.COM
Eastlake’s girls squad capped a perfect 10-0 regular season on the golf course, beating rival Redmond 206-238 at Sahalee on May 6. The Wolves, which finished third at last year’s 4A state tournament, got
a one-under par 35 from medalist Ashley Fitzgibbons, and a 36 from Maddie Nelson. Jamie Midkiff shot 40 for Eastlake in its final regular season match of the year. The team score of 206 was the best of the year for coach Pat Bangasser’s Wolves, bettering the 207
they fired at Sahalee in a win over Inglemoor. Midkiff, Fitzgibbons and Nelson all look primed for a repeat trip to state, where they all finished inside the top-12 last season. The final stop before state is the KingCo Medalist Tournament, a two-day event May 13 and 14 at Snohomish Golf Course.

Issaquah was unable to win a second matchup of unbeaten teams in Division I boys lacrosse, falling 10-9 to Mercer Island in a game that carried heavy conference standing and playoff seeding implications. The Eagles, which recently handed Bellevue its first conference loss, took an early lead against the Islanders, and led by a goal after the first quarter. But Mercer Island used four goals from Cooper Johnson and two more from Brett Bottomley, along with a defense that held Issaquah to only three second half goals, to escape with the win. Zach Fritz had three goals and two assists for coach Brandon Fortier’s squad, while Matt Thomas and Ryan Egland each added two goals in the loss. The Islanders, which face Bellevue May 9, enter that game as the lone remaining unbeaten team in conference play and have the inside track to the league’s top playoff seed. Issaquah handled Eastlake 16-2 on May 6 at home, before taking on Bainbridge in a non-league game May 9, and concluding the regular season against Skyline (May 13) and Roosevelt (May 17).
Crusaders still streaking Colin MacIlvennie scored five goals and Blake Lee added four more to lead the Crusaders to a 18-2 win against Overlake. Cameron Cronk and Colin Schreiver each recorded one save in a half of play, as EC dominated throughout.
Wolves fall by single goal Chase Barlow and Jeffrey Belleba each scored two goals, and Abe Escarda finished with 10 saves in net, but it was Lake Wash-
ington leaving with a 6-5 win. The Wolves, which currently sit in sixth place in the conference, travel to Ballard on May 9 looking to improve playoff hopes.
Skyline after playoff spot Skyline beat Newport 13-8 to strengthen its playoff positioning, and beat BothellInglemoor 13-8 on Tuesday. The Spartans close the regular season on May 16 against Woodinville.
Issaquah girls in top spot as playoffs near Issaquah faced Eastside Catholic in girls lacrosse on May 7, looking to earn the top spot in the Snoqualmie Conference headed into the postseason. ISD, winners of seven straight headed into Wednesday’s regular season finale, handed Lake Sammamish its first conference loss of the year on May 2, winning an 8-7 game. Suzy Emerson leads the team with 55 goals on the year, while Katie Bucy has added 31 more. Nicole Victory has a team high 24 assists. Katie Earll has recorded the majority of the minutes in goal, and has 41 saves on the year. Mary Halabi has added 18 saves in five games. Eastside Catholic beat Forest Ridge 14-5 on May 2 to get back on track after a 13-12 loss to Glacier Peak the previous day. The Crusaders could climb into a virtual three-way tie with Issaquah and Lake Sammamish with a win in its final game. All three teams at the top of the Snoqualmie standings will earn a spot in the field of 16 for the girls lacrosse state tournament. The seeds for the tournament will be determined by overall league points, with the first round set for May 9 and 10.

TALUS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
by Triad. Two large water tanks will be moved to a higher elevation so people who purchase in Parcel 7 have better water pressure. The tanks will be shielded by trees on three sides and where the tanks used to be will be landscaped. The eastern retaining wall, which is the biggest concern to homeowners, will be reduced by 10-feet so that at its highest point it is 39-feet. The northern end of the road will terminate in a driveway, but the right-of-way could be extended to the lot’s northern property line. In the April 15 meeting, concerns about the large retaining wall brought up the issue of the wall behind Fred Meyer and Home Depot. When that wall was built, this portion of Issaquah was still part of unincorporated King County, and it was the county that designed, reviewed, permitted and constructed it. It is failing. “That wall would not be duplicated in Talus today,” said city engineer Dan Ervin. Questions of who would pay for maintenance and replacement costs if the eastern wall should fail, indicated that it would rest on the shoulders of the Talus Residential Association through by a “surcharge,” or a raise in dues. Representing the TRA board, Bruce Bailey said they are not anti-development, but he was sorry TRIAD bought a parcel with a 40 percent grade. He said the board and residents don’t want the responsibility of an 800-foot long behemoth of a wall. “To say we have trepidation is an understatement,” Bailey said. “I’ve walked the area. It’s like a triple black-diamond if you’re skiing. Parcel 7 doesn’t fit the spirit of the neighborhood.” It was brought up that the HOA doesn’t even have the money to fix the fountain as you enter Talus, so they don’t want the extra burden of the wall. The HOA’s 2014 budget doesn’t include any money for wall replacement, and there are several throughout Talus. Since Talus is steep, and this is the highest parcel, retaining walls are used to accommodate grade changes. The city and the applicant said the proposed walls in parcel 7, “as modified are within the range of acceptance.” Another concern is a dead-end road, ending at a lot. Fire trucks will have to back around in a hammer head to get out. Eventually the condition was added that TRIAD must “explore redesigning the northern terminus of road ‘A’ to eliminate or reduce the dead-end portion. Options include moving drive ‘C’ to the north or adding a cul-de-sac which doesn’t meet fire service standards.”

Talus resident, Lisa Milkowski said the applicant and commission were still not addressing potential for flooding and landslides. “Models don’t account for real-life situations,” she said. “You have to believe the residents, we’re telling you real-life stuff, we’re not presenting a model. We have no drainage.” Milkowski brought up the YouTube video of a mudslide in Talus three years ago. Engineer Ted Schepper with Terra Associates said the YouTube video is from what he called a “blowout” resulting from material being pushed out by water, but eventually diminishing. The audience didn’t really care what it’s called — it happened. Sloman mentioned the 460 acres, which were preserved in the original development agreement, 388 acres of Native Growth Protection Area south of Tibbetts Creek and 71 acres of open space between development parcels. Ken Koningsmark, who was involved with Talus from the start, said the developer did not want to give that property away — they wanted $15 million for it. What they got instead was commercial space in Talus, which is another problem now for the HOA (see related story on page 3). The city now owns the 388 acres. Karen Porterfield, another Talus resident, found it ingenuous that the city and builder were allowed two and one-half hours to plead their case, and the public was being held to limit their remarks to

Many echoed her concerns as well as additional concerns about steep street grades, traffic, and an inequitable HOA arrangement with the commercial interests having more votes than the individual homeowners. Commissioner Jim Kieburtz said even though the HOA is not in their purview, it wasn’t in their character to ignore the situation. Chairman Geoffrey Walker disagreed, saying they shouldn’t go down that path. In the end, a motion was made, but no commissioner would second the motion. They were polled individually and in the end agreed to move it forward with five new conditions, but no specific recommendation to the council. Kieburtz, Walker and Michael Beard abstained, while Erik Olson, Chantal Stevens, Scott McKillop and Karl Leigh voted to move it to council.

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. agr.wa.gov/inspection/ WeightsMeasures/Fire woodinformation.aspx agr.wa.gov/inspection/WeightsMeasures/Firewoodinformation.aspx
