Lincoln Square utility work to close Bellevue Way Road to be closed from Northeast Fourth to Sixth BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

Utility work for the highly anticipated Lincoln Square expansion is slated to begin Monday, closing Bellevue Way from Northeast Fourth to Sixth streets until May 23.

Development Services Director Mike Brennan updated City Council on the traffic impacts and timeline for Kemper Development Company’s construction of a second Lincoln Square tower, which is part of a $1.2 billion expansion of the Bellevue Collection. Following utility installment, the first phase of the Lincoln Square 2 project will be a six-level car garage. The utility work will shut down Bellevue Way between Fourth and Sixth through May 23, said

Brennan. Some of the work involves digging as deep as 20 feet. Businesses along that portion of Bellevue Way will remain open. Detour routes and flaggers will be available to redirect traffic away from the construction zone during the 12-day closure. Updates from KDC on the utility project can be found at Intermittent road closures are expected to occur when major construction of


Lincoln Square 2 begins. Brennan said construction will follow the Bellevue Arts Museum’s art fair, which runs July 25-27. KDC Chairman Kemper Freeman is hosting a press conference today, May 9 to discuss the Bellevue Collection expansion and preside over the grand opening of The Studio Expansion Experience Center. A release states the center will be the “high tech leasing sales office of the future.”

The fight to stop Puget Sound Energy from running an 18-mile transmission line from Redmond to Renton continues, with 74 Eastside residents claiming the power company has no legal right to do so along the Eastside Rail Corridor. A lawsuit in Snohomish County Superior Court filed last month by those residents — spanning waterfront properties from Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park in Renton to Newcastle Beach Park in Bellevue — claims PSE was granted the right to subsurface and aerial rights along the old BNSF south rail line by the Port of Seattle and King County through a land deal, however, the port had no right to do so. Going back more than 100 years, Eastside residents claim the rail line property was only granted easements for railroad purposes. However, it is also allowed to be used as a recreational trail under the Trails Act since the rail was abandoned, which residents strongly support over the Energize Eastside project. King County is already working on design for a trail there that would provide linkage to other larger trails like the Sammamish River Trail in Redmond and Woodinville and the I-90 Trail in Bellevue. Residents further claim the Port of Seattle only acquired a surface easement for railroad purposes, and property owners along the line are the true owners of those subsurface and aerial rights through fee interest in the right of way. The lawsuit seeks judgement declaring the port, county and PSE only have a surface easement for a hiking and biking trail and verifying residents’ claim the energy company has neither subsurface nor aerial rights. “There’s been a lot of research done on the past titles for all of

Council approves settlements for Northeast Fourth extension BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

Bellevue city councilmembers approved settlements Monday with Best Buy and Bellevue 116th Avenue, LLC — three weeks after putting their final offers on the table to buy up property for extending Northeast Fourth Street. The city has been involved in lengthy litigation over the properties, owned by the limited liability company and Best Buy, that are part of the first two phases of the Northeast Fourth Street extension between 116th and 120th avenues northeast. Councilmembers expressed frustration with the property owners during their April 14 session, stating they were

tired of being pressed for more money to obtain the properties. They put their final offers on the table that night for $12.84 million and $6.2 million for the Best Buy and LLC properties, respectively, with Monday being the deadline to accept. Those figures remained unchanged over the past three weeks. The settlement agreement with Best Buy, which is the tenant on the propertry, requires adjacent Home Depot to withdraw its own appeals regarding the condemnation of a portion of a parking lot both businesses share for the extension project. The city already has granted Best Buy conditional approval to remodel its SEE SETTLEMENT, 4

Kaisho, the izakaya restaurant in Bellevue Square, closed May 1 after being open just five months.

Madison Holdings is the restaurant company behind Boom Noodles and Blue C Sushi, the latter rapidly growing in California, with a recent opening in Hollywood and more to follow in San Francisco, Newport Beach and Tarzana. Lunak, culinary vice president of Madison Holdings, said Kaisho — located next to Blue C in Bellevue Square — offered a lot of extra space that the company will need for a test kitchen to develop menu items and event space. “I think this is going to be kind of the mother ship for everything we do,” Lunak said, adding closure isn’t the end for Kaisho. “It’s really just reassessing what we have space for. I don’t see Kaisho being done with. I just see this chapter being done.” Kaisho’s interior renovations will remain the same, he said. A larger, rarely used upstairs space may lend itself to catering events. Lunak

Kaisho has closed in Bellevue Square to make way for its parent’s other ventures. BRANDON MACZ, Bellevue Reporter said one frustration for Kaisho was having so many large companies wanting to host events there, but being limited in space. “We’d be more than receptive to the idea of even doing a complete dinner right there,” he said.

Council reviews economic development strategic plan BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

Bellevue City Council is poised to adopt an economic development strategic plan that includes working to draw in more next gen tech companies, promoting citywide assets and strengthening its focus on tourism following a Monday review. Staff and consultants working on the draft economic plan updated the council on its progress, seeking any changes ahead of future adoption. Much of the plan focuses on taking advantage of high tech firms

The city should focus on startup tech firms, as well as midsized firms, said Brian Murphy, principal at BERK and Associates, with higher education geared toward generating more startups and providing existing tech firms with quality talent. Capitalizing on Bellevue being a part of the “Pacific Rim,” it will also be important for the city to strengthen its international relations and outreach with foreign investors, he said. The

possibility of Bellevue acting as a consulate was briefly mentioned. Overseas recruitment of businesses and talent would likely require dedicated staffing, Murphy said. There will also need to be more cost assumed to increase the city’s economic development marketing campaign to support the strategic plan, which will include linking investors to investment opportunities in Bellevue.

Council takes comments on shoreline plan BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

More than 40 Eastside residents struggled with their allotted time to comment Monday on the land use code and comprehensive plan changes they want to see made to improve the city of Bellevue’s draft shoreline master program. The city continues to work on its shoreline master plan, which soon will be sent to the Washington Department of Ecology for review and potential approval, but a number of residents with waterfront property stated Monday they want to make sure it guarantees environmental protections for shorelines ahead of future development and redevelopment. One resident on West Lake Sammamish Parkway argued waves have become higher on Lake Sammamish, and bulkheads continue to be necessary to protect waterfront properties and docks. Bulkheads — vertical concrete barriers along shorelines — will not be allowed

The Wilburton area is being strongly favored for this, as is workforce housing in the redeveloping Bel-Red corridor. To take the economic development strategic

to be replaced under the shoreline plan, which instead favors a rocky slope, unless they are determined to be the only feasible option. Members of the group, Save Lake Sammamish, expressed concerns about adjusting setbacks to 25 feet rather than the current 53-foot setback, which they said would result in a loss of trees and shrubs. They added the program being considered does not provide enough protections for native vegetation, allowing lawns to make up vegetative restoration. Issaquah and Sammamish have completed their shoreline master programs, with setbacks at 35 feet and 50 feet, respectively. Save Lake Sammamish representatives said Bellevue should keep its setback to avoid clashing with those other communities’ programs. Attorney Rick Aramburu, legal counsel for SLS, told Bellevue councilmembers the city’s draft master program includes “legal defects” that include no cumulative measurement for what constitutes “no net loss,” as required by the ecology department. Aaron Dichter with the Meydenbauer Bay Neighbors Association spoke to the city’s plans for a Meydenbauer Bay Park, advocating the group’s position that development in the area be limited to what was approved in the park’s master plan.

Laurie Lyford, president of the Washington Sensible Shorelines Association, voiced the group’s support of the shoreline master program, understanding that some compromise would be necessary on both sides of the issue — the city’s and waterfront residents. She added the greenscape element will be key for the SMP’s success. WSSA board member Marty Nizlek commended the city for its hiring of Dick Settle, an attorney specializing in environmental and land use law with Foster Pepper PLLC, to assist in preparing the SMP for ecology review. Mayor Claudia Balducci said this was one of two public hearings that will take place, and Monday’s hearing was planned early in the process to address the issues brought forth by the community. She said this is her 11th year on the council and she has seen how large-scale plans like these play out. “I have never, and I mean never, seen something come to us in this amount of detail that doesn’t change at least somewhat,” she said. “… We’re going to engage with these issues, and I don’t know where it’s going to go, but we’re going to have some discussion. There will probably be some changes. We want a balanced plan at the end.”

Carpenter, spokesman for the WSLCB. The lottery was necessary in many parts of the state to address the more than 2,000 retail applications to the liquor board, when only 334 licenses are allowed statewide. More than 50 applications were filed for pot stores in Bellevue. Candidates for licensure were already put through a prescreening process, he said, and now will face a financial investigation, background check and final inspection of their properties where the stores are proposed to operate. Licenses are expected to be issued by the first week of July and in 10-20 batches within major population areas. “There’s still quite a bit left,” Carpenter said. “If someone doesn’t make it through the licensing process, we just go on to the next one.” The city has put in place an interim zoning ordinance, which conforms with the state and allows retail in 13 different zones. Growing and processing may only occur within light industrial zones, and is not limited by a finite amount of licenses. The liquor control board also has drafted rules that would prevent any such business from opening within 1,000 feet of a school, park, transit hub, child care center, playground, library, arcade center and collective gardens, which the city likewise adopted in its interim ordinance.

A legacy of joy, rebellion


illy Frank Jr. did what most politicians find unimaginable: He cussed in public and was bracingly partial to telling the truth. Frank, the seminal 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 nontribal allies when he started out. “Billy was a true statesman who brought an optimistic, can-do 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, Billy Frank Jr. 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 violation 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. 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 of 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

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.

The cut affects our college directly, and I also worry about our rapidly growing region, reliant upon the services community colleges such as BC provide. Without readily available transit, many students face one David Rule 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 9 percent in the last three years.

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

With gas prices at $3.75 a gallon, the cost of filling up a tank of gas ranges from $63.75 for a Toyota Corolla (gas tank capacity 17 gallons) to $116.25 for a Chevy Suburban (tank capacity of 31 gallons). But a majority of King County voters were unwilling to pay $60 once a year to fund public transportation and fix roads.

Davis moves from ensemble to center stage BY DANIEL NASH

Bellevue Jazz Festival announces full concert schedule


The Bellevue Downtown Association on Tuesday released the full concert schedule for the 7th annual Bellevue Jazz Festival, coming to downtown Bellevue May 28 to June 1. The festival will host free and ticketed performances by international jazz icons, regional artists and student musicians. Ticketed performances will be held at the Theatre at Meydenbauer Center and Bake’s Place. Headliners at Bake’s Place include Ray Vega and Thomas Marriott, featuring George Colligan. They will perform in the EastWest Trumpet Summit May 28. Bake’s will host Carlos Cacante Y Su Tumbao on May 29. Meydenbauer will host Poncho Sanchez and his Latin Jazz Band on May 30, and Bill Frisell’s Beautiful Dreamers featuring Eyvind Kang and Rudy Royston on May 31. More than 40 other performances will be held throughout downtown over the five days. Performers include the Ryan Shea Smith Duo, June Tonkin and the Todd Beamer High School Jazz Combo. Tickets and the full schedule are available at and from Brown Paper Tickets, at its website, by phone at 800838-3006, or its box office at Meydenbauer Center.

For five years, actress Sarah Rose Davis of Bellevue has worked in the background as an ensemble performer, helping to fill out the grand spectacle of shows like “Spamalot,” “The Pirates of Penzance” and “Damn Yankees.” “A lot of time the audience doesn’t realize the ensemble (cast) is rushing around behind the scenes to get ready for their next appearance,” Davis, 25, said. “A lot of times, an ensemble member is playing two or three or more characters, with costume changes for each one. “Or it could be the opposite and you have a lot of downtime, but then you need to know exactly when your scene is happening and be out on stage at just the right time.” Davis will debut in her first professional leading role May 15 when she appears as Fanny Brice in Village Theatre’s production of “Funny Girl.” The musical is loosely based on the life of the vaudevillian singer and actress, focusing on her early fame and romance with Nick Arnstein, a professional gambler and white collar criminal. The show’s depiction of Brice provided a young Barbra Streisand with her breakout role: it’s overnight stage success rocketed her into the public eye, and Streisand’s turn in the 1968 film adaptation earned her the

Sarah Rose Davis. COURTESY PHOTO Academy Award for Best Actress. Though “Funny Girl” is a mostly fictionalized retelling of Brice’s life, Davis said she found it useful to study the woman for her own sense of the character. In real life and in the show Brice was a woman who fought her way to fame with an irrepressible passion for song and performance. “She pretty much won’t take no for an answer,” Davis said. “She’s driven, she’s flamboyant and she likes to get into people’s faces until she gets her way, but not in an obnoxious way.”

In this sense Davis is a kindred spirit: a young actress who’s done little else than perform from an early age. Davis caught the bug for singing at age 7. She wasn’t the first performer in her family — her uncles loved to sing as well — but her interest escalated beyond the level of hobby quickly. At the age of 14, she sang “It’s Raining Men” for the short-lived competition series “America’s Most Talented Kid,” a performance that ultimately went untelevised. She performed frequently with Village’s KidStage as she added acting to her repertoire, and became a drama kid at Newport High School. By her junior year, Davis knew she wanted to make a go at acting professionally and dropped every other extracurricular but softball. Davis was eventually accepted into the prestigious Boston Conservatory, where she picked up dancing — a bit later than most, she said — and completed her BFA in theater. During college she began traveling to New York City for work in concerts and readings of new musicals. Davis made a go at living in the Big Apple for five months before returning to Seattle. “When you’re living in New York, you constantly have to travel just outside the city because the work is outside of New York most of the time,” she said. “Here SEE DAVIS, 9

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” and audiences responded with a collective shrug. This fun but formulaic comedy pits Rogen against Zac Efron, the former as a married new father and the latter playing the rival patriarch of a rowdy frat house next door. The conflict writes itself — “We’ve got to get Delti Psi put on probation, so our baby can sleep at night!” — 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!” He’s committed to playing


it’s different because the theater companies work on seasons … you find out well in advance if you have a part. I found out I got this part last summer, so it was nice because I knew exactly what I would be doing a year from then.” Davis was a perennial ensemble player in 5th Avenue and Village productions, and gained her first professional main cast role as Faith in the 2013 Village original “Trails.” But “Funny Girl” will be her most

the handsome dunce and wading in the warm-hearted raunch that’s the hallmark of Apatow-land (the film is directed by Nicholas Stoller, of “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”). 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.

That’s when it will become overwhelming, because I’ll have to add in all the costume changes… and I’m in almost every scene of the show. I have one costume change in 15 seconds. “The fact is, I don’t get to go to the dressing room at any point. I’ll be just off-stage, changing into my next outfit.”

107-year-old woman bridges 3 oceans, 5 generations escaped the Far East on what Sylvia told her son was the last ship to leave for the United States before the start of World War II. The younger Wells-Henderson said his mother returned to Shanghai briefly after the war, but was forced come home to Seattle with tuberculosis and spent more than two years at Riverton Hospital recovering from the illness. In addition to her battle with tuberculosis, Ron said his mother has survived malaria, numerous broken bones from falling off a


The year 1907 was memorable in England. The Women’s Suffrage movement took root, the first taxi cabs began to operate in London and New Zealand and Newfoundland both became dominions of the English crown. It was also when Bellevue resident Sylvia Wells-Henderson was born in the township of Great Yarmouth while her mother was in England on a trip to trace her ancestral roots. The unexpected early arrival gave the baby dual citizenship from the moment of her birth. Wells-Henderson’s 100th birthday was acknowledged seven years ago with notes of congratulations from both the President of the United States and the Queen of England. “My mother was an American raised in Seattle, but has always been especially proud of her roots in the U.K.,” said her son Ron Wells-Henderson. Sylvia’s latest birthday was celebrated with a modest party with friends and relatives at the Sunshine Park adult family home where she currently lives in the Kelsey Creek neighborhood of Bellevue. The guest list included a number of her former caregivers. Jainaba Drammeh operates the adult family home where Wells-Henderson has lived for the past two years. Drammeh admits that some days are better than others for her oldest resident, but that Sylvia maintains her zeal for life by continuing to read. “She may not be as talkative as she once was, but we know she is the most happy when she is just sitting in a chair with a book,” said Drammeh.

Sylvia Wells-Henderson (center) with caregiver Fatemah Monjezi and niece Patricia Aitken. DANIEL NASH, Bellevue Reporter Sylvia’s father, the Rev. Herbert H. Gowen, accepted a position with the University of Washington in 1909 to start what would eventually become the Jackson School of International Studies. A building on the campus quad was named in his honor. The Gowen home on 22nd Avenue Northeast is now the Chambered Nautilus. Sylvia rode horses at Fort Lawton as a teenager and attended Roosevelt High School before enrolling at the University of Washington, where she served as captain of the debate team. She began her career as an English teacher in Oregon, but moved closer to home to accept a similar position with the Bush School in Seattle. She married William Noel Wells-Henderson in 1932 and later followed him to live in the Chinese city of Shanghai. The couple

How to create clean, crisp curb appeal for your home’s entry


hether you are building a new home, or want to refresh your existing home, choosing a contemporary style creates high-class curb appeal.

But, what goes into contemporary home styling? Among the various ways architects and interior designers describe “contemporary,” two words come up again and again: “simple” and “sophisticated.” For example, interior decorator Coral Nafie describes it as, “fundamentally, simplicity, subtle sophistication, texture and clean lines help to define contemporary style decorating. Interiors showcase space rather than things. By focusing on color, space, and shape, contemporary interiors are sleek and fresh.” “Less is more: smooth profiles instead of ornamentation,” adds decorator Lisa Frederick. As seen from the outside, the National Association of Realtors notes contemporary homes feature these design elements: • Irregular, asymmetrical façade


• Strong, geometric shapes • Distinctive roofline - sometimes flat, other times gabled -usually with a wide eave overhang

“simple” and “sophisticated.”

• Natural, often local, building materials


Your home might be a crisp marvel of modern architecture, a mid-century rambler or some other style. In any case, a simple way to create contemporary curb appeal is with a sophisticated front entry, starting at the door. “Traditional front doors, as in Colonial homes, had a lot of decorative features,” says Brad Loveless, marketing and product development manager for Simpson Door Company. “Picture molding, raised panels, dentil shelves and elaborate knobs, knockers and hinges. Today, many homeowners, particularly those on the upper end, look for entry doors that are much more clean and crisp. Contemporary door styles have straight lines, flat panels and simple geometric shapes like squares, diamonds and rectangles.” In keeping with the contemporary theme of using natural materials, wood and glass are popular in entry doors. You can select from dozens of readily available wood species and some manufacturers will make a door out of any species you choose. Glass options range from simple, clear glass, to textures that balance light and privacy. CURB APPEAL | TO PAGE 13

the overt warmth of older design styles, it won’t cast a chill either.” Architect John Hill’s take is, “contemporary architecture is of its time, therefore innovative and forward-looking.” ~ BrandPoint

For example, Simpson’s website features “DOORmagination” tools that include a “Test Drive Your Door” tool that lets you upload a photo of your home and see how various doors will look on it. Other design tools include a wood species selector allowing you to see doors in more than 20 wood types, and a “Glass Taste Test” to see how much privacy different glass textures provide. To complete the look of your contemporary door, it is important to consider hardware. On today’s front doors, the hardware is usually understated - simple handle and locksets in satin metal finishes are popular - no lion’s head door knockers. Your local door dealer or hardware store can show you dozens of options. As a final inspiration, remember that simple does not need to mean boring or cold.

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.”

Interlake seniors leading playoff push

Wolverines, Islanders set for grudge match BY JOSH SUMAN




For Interlake seniors Nestor Quijada and Austin Bradford, the 2014 season could not come soon enough. After finishing 2013 without a state playoff berth for the first time in several years, Quijada and Bradford knew they wanted a more fitting ending to their prep careers. “I was devastated,” Quijada said. “We left with a bad taste in our mouths,” Bradford added. But with a renewed sense of commitment led by an unselfish group of seniors, Interlake is back in the mix for a state tournament spot in 2014. Coach Dan Peterson’s Saints finished the regular season with a 2-1 loss to Juanita on May 6, after winning six of their previous eight games. Eight different players have scored two or more goals, led by eight from junior Jose Castillo and seven from Jason Rodriguez. “Our center midfielders have done a good job winning the ball, and we have good team speed, so our forwards get ahead,” Peterson said. “It starts with winning the ball, and we attack quickly from there.” Peterson said around a half dozen of his players have played together throughout their high school careers and beyond, helping form a nucleus less concerned about individual statistics than getting back to the state tournament in Class 3A. Quijada and Bradford said that focus began as soon as

Interlake has used a fast-paced offensive attack, and experienced defenders in the back end, to make its push in 2A/3A KingCo. Courtesy Photo last season ended. “I just wanted to get the team bonding,” he said. “We trust each other now.” While the offense has used contributions from a host of players, the defense has relied on the experience of Quijada and Bradford, as well as a pair of standout goalies in Sam Dawson and Forest Gobble. Dawson has four shutouts on the year in goal, and Gobble has added five more. Peterson said with a core of upperclassmen who were SEE SAINTS, 16

Three teams remain in contention for the top spot from KingCo to the boys Division I lacrosse state tournament, with rivals Bellevue and Mercer Island set to help decide the regular season champion 8 p.m. Friday. The Islanders are a perfect 9-0-0 in conference play headed into the game, and passed their stiffest test of the season with a 10-9 win over Issaquah May 2. That victory put them in the diver’s seat for the top seed to the postseason and first round bye, and Mercer Island can lock up those accomplishments with a win over the Wolverines. Bellevue is 9-1-0 and tied with Issaquah entering its final two games, after falling to the Eagles on April 25. Two more wins, coupled with a loss by the Eagles against either Skyline or Roosevelt, would give the Wolverines another outright conference championship. Bellevue has won three straight since falling to Issaquah, and beat Ballard 17-1 in its final tuneup for the rivalry showdown with the Islanders. Mercer Island’s only loss came in an out-of-state game, and they enter the game scoring 14 goals per game in their last four contests since the setback. By contrast, no team has scored more than nine goals against the Wolverines in a game this season. Bellevue finishes the regular season May 16 against Mount Si.

Wolverines win baseball title BY JOSH SUMAN BELLEVUE REPORTER

All season, Bellevue baseball coach Pete Wilkinson has talked about his team’s dedication to executing the details, even in the face of pressure packed situations. Monday, in the finale for a quartet of seniors and with a second straight regular season championship on the line, his Wolverines delivered yet again. Isaac Lee knocked in a pair of runs and scored another, and Nick Kafer worked six innings on the mound as Bellevue beat Mercer Island 5-4 to claim the regular season 3A KingCo baseball crown. Kafer added a double and RBI at the plate, while Rob Lundquist and Jack Savard also delivered doubles in the win. In his six innings of work, the Wolverines’ starter allowed three runs on four hits, striking out four. Ruric Ellings gave up a pair of hits and one run in the seventh, but quelled the final Islander threat to preserve the win and conference championship. Mercer Island, which beat Bellevue 9-0 in the other game between the two conference

frontrunners this season, committed four errors in the game, and was held scoreless for four innings after jumping on top with a run in the top half of the first. The win sends the Wolverines to the KingCo tournament with the top seed, and a first round bye. Bellevue opens the tournament Saturday at 1 p.m. at Bannerwood Park against the winner of a loser-out game, and with a tournament title game spot on the line. The tournament champion earns the conference’s automatic 3A state tournament spot, while the second place finisher will meet a Metro opponent for the final state berth from the district. Interlake opens against Juanita in a Thursday loser-out game. Newport handled Garfield 8-0 behind another standout performance on the mound from junior pitcher Todd Reese, and heads to Saturday’s 4A KingCo tournament at Woodinville as the second seed from the Crown. The Knights face Woodinville in a first round game.

BLAST FINISH SECOND The 10U Bellevue Blast softball team finished second at an American Softball Association tournament recently, reaching the championship game. Team members include Chloe Larson, Jenna Stanley, Delaney Chenevert, Ava Doyle, Rosalynn Schurch, Avery Taylor, Payton Pluschke, Lexi Richards, Elliotte Wood, Brook Richards, Michelle Lyon and Jessica Fink.

these folks, so people go back to a variety of different deeds and variances that have been made over the years,” said attorney Rick Aramburu, who is representing the 74 residents in the lawsuit. PSE has until later this month to file an answer to the complaint, stating its case for why it should be allowed to complete its Energize Eastside project there. Andy Wappler, PSE vice president of corporate affairs, said the energy company isn’t commenting with specifics to the litigation, but reiterated that route is one of two being considered, and PSE has not made a final decision. The energy company is using this year to focus on public outreach and input Reach your best prospects with the Bellevue Reporter Delivered every Friday

that is to be used when making its final determination, said Wappler, and won’t be seeking construction permits until early 2015. “If our community advisory group can reach a clear consensus on which routes work best, that’s the way we’ll go,” Wappler said. “… Right now, what we’re looking at with Energize Eastside is potential route segments and everything is still just that. Every route is still on the table and still equal.” PSE is also facing opposition from the Somerset neighborhood in Bellevue, which opposes its other eastern route being proposed for the transmission line project and does not believe the Energize Eastside project is being done for the benefit of Eastside residents. Bellevue is currently running on a system that was put in place in the 1960s, said Wappler, and the need is real when facing immense job and population growth by 2040. PSE also estimates it could begin seeing capac-

ity issues by 2017. “The legal questions don’t really change the basic facts that our community is getting bigger and can’t continue to rely on the same electric infrastructure that it has for the past five decades,” Wappler said. PSE has the power of condemnation, which it can use through filing its own lawsuit to continue the “L” segment along Lake Washington, Aramburu said. The energy company would need to prove the project is necessary and a beneficial public use. “If PSE does decide to condemn and the court allows them to proceed with condemnation, then the property owners would be paid the fair market value of the land, but the point of this litigation is to have them not do it, to not put the power lines in,” Aramburu said. Wappler said while PSE does have the option for condemnation, “Clearly that’s not a preferred step or the first step.” 1037332

Amrita Ram explains her piezoelectric EcoBoard to audience members during a judging recess at the Young Entrepreneurs Academy pitch event. DANIEL NASH, Bellevue Reporter

On May 1, Newport High School junior Amrita Ram walked into the Wilburton Instructional Service Center with more than a dozen of her colleagues in the Bellevue chapter of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. Like everyone else, she was armed with a presentation, a business refined over the course of the past school year and a request for a specific dollar amount from an investment fund. Each presenter walked out of the Rainier Room a little richer — and perhaps a little more wary under the hard questioning from a judging panel of local executives — but Ram walked out $3,600 richer. Ram, 16, was awarded — “Without hesitation,” judge Tanya Fraioli said — first place for Fresh Steps, a company working on the development of flooring that can generate supplemental electricity for high traffic buildings. She received nearly four times her re-

quested capital infusion of $935, which she will use for further development of her signature EcoBoard, she said. The board exploits piezoelectricity, a phenomenon for which compression of certain types of materials creates electric discharge. “I had shoes that lit up whenever I stepped on the floor and became interested with the technology that enabled [them] to do so,” she said. “After that, my father and I began to learn about the technology together. Since then I’ve always been interested in the technology and have continued to experiment with it.” Ram has built a basic prototype, but she continues to work on obstacles such as effective storage of the energy generated and finding reliably durable and cheap tile materials. Runners up in the pitch competition were Brute Jute, a company dealing in decorative reusable bags made of bamboo and jute, and Dot Cosmetics, a company creating a combined lip balm and exfoliant.

Teens at risk


Stimulants a growing concern


any adults are understandably concerned about the increased availability of pot and its effect on our kids. However, less is being said about a very real and alarming youth drug trend: the increased use of amphetamines. Commonly known as meth, speed or coke, amphetamines stimulate the central nervous system. For years, TV and movies have portrayed young adults using these drugs to pull allnighters before exams or to party all night long. But did you know that growing numbers of children and teens are abusing legal amphetamines such as Adderall and Ritalin, used widely to treat attention deficit Patti Skeltondisorder and attention deficit hyperactivity McGougan disorder? Clients at YES say they are taking these drugs not necessarily to get high, but often simply to get through their day. And what a day it is! Consider a student who gets up at 5 o’ clock in the morning to go to early sports practice, followed by a demanding day at school and a swim meet at a neighboring school. She crams in some studying in the car after her dad picks her up. She eats a late supper and then heads to her room to finish her term paper and study for a physics exam – all while texting with several friends.

Creative Children for Charity held its 40 Story’s Mega Event at Microsoft Conference Center Saturday. As reported in the Feb. 21 Arts & Entertainment section of the Reporter, 3C collected 40 oil paintings from young artists depicting qualities of leadership. The paintings, on display above, will be collected into an upcoming book. COURTESY PHOTO

It’s after midnight before she collapses into a restless sleep, because she’s thinking about her part-time job, youth symphony, church youth group and the family ski trip coming up. It’s no surprise that such a teen resorts to stimulants just to keep her head above water. “I take what I need to stay awake” is something we often hear at YES. Many young people connect their substance use to the growing pressure to succeed. The expectations placed on youth these days are truly unprecedented. It’s so important to take stock of your family’s schedule. Is the desire to expose our children to everything life has to offer compromising their healthy development and ability to cope? I encourage all parents to adopt three rules of thumb: • Expect less. Involve your kids in an honest discussion about their schedules. Is there anything outside of schoolwork that doesn’t feel right for them? Is there something they want to give up to create more time in their week? • Talk more. Share what you have learned about the use of “study drugs,” and be honest about your concerns regarding potential harm. • Lastly, please lock your medicine cabinet. No parent wants to look back and say, “If only …” Patti Skelton-McGougan is executive director of Youth Eastside Services. For more information, call 425-747-4937 or go to
