Bellevue mulls buying back cuts to Metro bus service BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

A proposal by King County to have Bellevue buy back some bus routes planned to be cut by Metro Transit could be a hard sell. Members of the City Council on Tuesday insisted there be a return on investment that includes a plan to holster Metro efficiency and reduce its own operating costs.

King County Executive Dow Constantine earlier this month announced the buyback plan following the defeat of Prop No. 1, which was meant to provide funding to prevent massive cuts and revisions. Among the 16-percent cuts and revisions being proposed by Metro, Bellevue will see 26 of its 33 routes altered or cut. Seven routes are proposed to be deleted and two revised in September with two more rounds of cuts next year. The King County Council is set

to vote on allowing the changes on June 9. Mayor Claudia Balducci said she needs to know the value of the service before the city commits to paying for what would likely only be the routes with the most frequent use that would suffer most from the Metro cuts. Councilmembers agreed the county needs to preserve Route 271, which is proposed to be rerouted away from the Bellevue College campus to 148th Avenue Southeast. "It's our responsibility to do something,"

120-year-old Bellevue home to be razed for redevelopment

Balducci said, "and advocate is the minimum." Councilmember Lynne Robinson said she supports recommendations for revised cuts and route changes provided by Franz Loewenherz, the city's senior transportation planner. She said the King County Council is interested in reviewing those recommendations. SEE METRO, 14

Eastside Heritage, residents advocate preserving structure

BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

The Eastside Heritage Center called on Bellevue residents to help save the city’s oldest Main Street structure from demolition to make way for future development. The plea was made during a public hearing Wednesday night at City Hall. The Philbrook House is a Victoriaera home built in the 1890s at 10133 Main Street that has been repurposed over the past 120 years and is listed on the city’s historic resources inventory, said Heather Trescases, executive director for Eastside Heritage. It began as a farmhouse and then a residence for a Civil War veteran before becoming a restaurant in the 1920s, which included serving whalers headquartered in Meydenbauer Bay. In the 1940s it was a plumbing store. It then housed various antique businesses from the ‘70s to ‘90s. Owners of the Gordon James Fine Diamonds store also own the his-

toric structure behind the shop, and propose to level it to make way for a two-story, 1,600-square-foot office building. “We’re sad to see it go and to see it go off Main Street because it really represents the early Bellevue story,” Trescases said. “My hope would be that they do adopt a reuse and do what is needed to keep it in its place.” Eastside Heritage representatives and a number of concerned residents spoke out about preserving the historic building during Wednesday’s public hearing for design review of the project at City Hall. Trescases said if there were an option to move the historic home, it

Veterinarians are fighting a King County proposal to mandate the release of rabies vaccination records they see as an invasion of privacy and a shortcut to penalizing owners of unlicensed pets. The county says it wants greater compliance with the law, and hopes to reach an agreeable approach with vets. King County Animal Services canvassers began doorto-door checks of Bellevue residences in April, educating pet owners about a requirement to license all cats and dogs eight weeks or older and making licenses available for purchase. Animal Services formed in 2010, and contracts with 25 of King County's 39 cities. Cities that provide their own animal control include Seattle, Auburn and Renton. Pet licensing fees fund about 50 percent of the agency's operations, but the compliance rate remains low at about 21 percent, said Cameron Satterfield, a spokesman with the King County Department of Executive Services. "What we're looking into is a proposal to have veterinarians report their rabies vaccination information to King County," he said. "We've been working with the veterinary associations, the Puget Sound Veterinary Medical Association is one of them in particular, to try a voluntary program to have them educate their pet owners who come into their offices about the importance of pet licensing." Pet licensing allows owners to be reunited with lost

Bellevue commits to stronger involvement in Energize Eastside BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

Responding to appeals from Bellevue residents to take a more active role in Puget Sound Energy’s Energize Eastside project, the City Council on May 19 pushed the energy company to provide more research to support its claims that capacity issues are imminent and an 18-mile transmission line based largely in the city is necessary. The PSE project, which proposes to use

one of two routes laid out for the public to run higher-voltage transmission lines from Renton to Redmond, has taken criticism from the more than 25 neighborhoods it could run through. Somerset residents argue Energize Eastside is being proposed more for the benefit of energy consumers in California and Canada than for Eastside residents. Like many other neighborhoods, they also don’t want to see transmission poles more than 100 feet in height erected near them.

A lack of options — the most mentioned alternative being underground lines — also has upset residents, many of whom want to see how PSE reduced its options to just two routes. More than 70 Eastside residents — spanning waterfront properties from Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park in Renton to Newcastle Beach Park in Bellevue — filed suit against PSE last month, claiming it has no subsurface and aerial rights along the old Burlington Northern-Santa Fe south rail line proposed to be used under one of the routes. One week after more than 200 Bellevue residents — orange shirts and all — appeared before the City Council to request the city be more involved in the project, PSE representatives came before the council on May 19 to answer questions about Energize Eastside and provide what will be regular updates to the city. Land Use Director Carol Helland said a community forum also will be held 7-9 p.m. June 3, and Bellevue members of the project’s community advisory group also will address the council next month. Helland said as most of the square footage for Energize Eastside is in Bellevue, the city will act as the lead permitting agency for the project, which could include looking at shoreline, critical areas and conditional use permitting. While Bellevue staff contends the project qualifies as an essential public facility, Councilmember Jennifer Robertson said she wants to know if the infrastructure upgrade is needed as soon as PSE says it is. Andy Wappler, PSE vice president of

corporate affairs, told the council Eastside demand is growing and is the focus of the project, again emphasizing the current system is more than 50 years old. It is true that most line improvements have a regional benefit, he said, when Councilmember Lynne Robinson asked for clarification about rumors that power generated by the project will be sold to California and Canada. PSE has held 14 public events about the project, had 179 one-on-one meetings with stakeholders and received more than 1,000 communications from the public, said Wappler, promising more outreach in the future. This year will focus on that outreach, and permitting is expected to begin in 2015. Wappler said webinars will soon be published on PSE’s Energize Eastside website addressing electromagnetic fields — some residents worry about their effect — and how the state address underground transmission lines, the cost for which PSE states is assumed by the residents and municipalities where they’re located. Mayor Claudia Balducci told PSE representatives that an early start taking on public education and concerns is important because it allows residents to have more influence on the project before an environmental impact statement process is initiated. PSE may be the experts in energy, she said, but the city wants to see how the company is reaching its conclusions. Brandon Macz: 425-453-4602; bmacz@bellevuereporter.com

BC working for diversity in students and faculty

A

recent Education Lab blog post asked a provocative question: “Is teacher diversity a problem in Washington?” Often times the discourse focused on K-12 and four-year colleges and universities. Surprisingly, community colleges are often omitted or marginalized. However, community colleges play an important role in educating our most vulnerable student populations — students of color, first generation college students, undocumented students and students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. According to a report in the Harvard University press, more than six million students enroll at the 1,200 community colleges nationwide. More than half of African-American college students and two-thirds of Latino students are enrolled Yoshiko Harden at community colleges. Trends tell us that racial and ethnic diversity among student populations will continue to grow. However, while student diversity is increasing, the racial and ethnic diversity of faculty has not kept pace. Bellevue College is working to address this gap at a systemic level. Most recently the college has supported initiatives such as mandatory “Implicit Bias in the Selection Process” training for faculty and staff who wish to serve on hiring committees (400-plus employees have participated in the training thus far). Bellevue College recognizes the value of diversity in higher education and is engaging in the challenging, and not always popular, work to enact change. I’m proud to work for this institution and with the unsung and unnamed faculty, staff and administrators, from all walks of life, who are committed to social justice and willing to do something about it. In answer to the question, “Is teacher diversity a problem in Washington?” My response is to reframe that question and say “teacher diversity is critical to the success of all students, and a problem that can be addressed.” Yoshiko Harden is the vice president for Diversity/Chief Diversity Officer at Bellevue College.

State to learn oil tankcar totals

B

y the end of next week, Washington will learn how often tank cars of oil siphoned from North Dakota’s Bakken Shale are getting shipped through the state. An emergency order from the U.S. Transportation Department requires railroads to tell the state how many trains carrying this highly flammable varietal of black gold are expected to travel through Washington each Jerry Cornfield week, and on which routes. Railroads are not required to reveal exactly what days and times the trains are coming or how much crude oil is getting transported. Community leaders, emergency

responders and some politicians say that’s the information they really need to be prepared for a derailment, spill or other type of accident. They’re aware of oil train derailments in Virginia in April, in Alabama in November; and in Quebec last July, where 47 people died. They know the chances of an accident are increasing as rail shipments of all types of crude oil multiply in Washington. The state Department of Ecology estimates it went from zero barrels in 2011 to nearly 17 million barrels — roughly 714 million gallons — in 2013. But rather than criticize the order as inadequate, these leaders cite the federal action as a step forward. “We’re all kind of worried about (Bakken crude) because it is much more flammable than regular crude oil. We have been asking for more

The rules, which kick in June 6 and apply to all 50 states, cover only shipments of at least 1 million gallons of Bakken crude. That sounds like a lot, except when you consider that one SEE CORNFIELD, 5

Sewer rate increases on the horizon for Bellevue BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

The Bellevue City Council will have a short timeline to communicate to the King County Executive's Office its concerns about proposed 2015 increases for wastewater and capacity rates they hope may be alleviated ahead of June action by the King County Council. King County Executive Dow Constantine proposes a 5.6-percent increase to the county's sewer rate to $42.03 per month and a 3-percent increase in the Wastewater Treatment Division's capacity charge to $57 for new connections. Tim Aratani, finance and administrative services manager for WTD, told Bellevue councilmembers 2015 operating expenses are expected to increase by

6.5 percent to $135 million and again by 4.7 percent in 2016. The sewer rate is expected to remain flat in 2016. The wastewater treatment division plans to spend down its reserves, tackling a $4 billion outstanding debt for capital projects and related additional staffing, and expects to reach rate stabilization by 2017, Aratani said. Councilmember Kevin Wallace said the WTD has loaded on too many projects, and the rate increases being brought on by them is too high for jurisdictions within the regional system to take. He added there is also an issue of equity, where someone living in a "mega-mansion" pays the same rate as someone in a "rambler." He said there should be a way to correct this and make sure everyone is paying their fair

share for the service. Mayor Claudia Balducci said she wants more information about how the city's contribution to the Our Waters program will be used in 2015. The Washington Supreme Court cleared the county to use the program for water quality improvements last year, following a legal challenge in 2008. Pam Elardo, director of King County's Wastewater Treatment Division, said the bulk of costs facing WTD for service are not related to an increase in water flow, but increases in loading — the solid matter in wastewater — that is being brought on by increases in population.

tank car holds about 30,000 gallons of crude oil, and oil trains commonly have 100 or more cars hitched together. Railroads must give the State Emergency Response Commission an estimate of how many trains will run through each county each week. The commission will notify the counties. After railroads provide the information next week, they won’t need to contact the state again unless the number of trains carrying Bakken oil increases or decreases by 25 percent or more.

5-foot-7-inches tall, 160-170 pounds, wearing a clear, plastic mask, black hoodie, blue jeans and a purple baseball cap, approached a teller around 11:20 a.m. and brandished what appeared to be a semiautomatic handgun. Following the robbery, the teller reported the man fleeing the 1000 block of Bellevue Way Northeast in a white four-door vehicle in an

unknown direction. Anyone with information about this individual is asked to contact the FBI by telephone at 206-622-0460, or email at seattle.fbi@ic.fbi.gov. The suspect is considered armed and dangerous.

Refiners and railroads aren’t enamored with the notification directive. They worry it could increase the risk of sabotage and encourage daring activists to try to block trains through protests. They’d prefer not to see the information publicized. State emergency management officials plan to post it online but on Tuesday were checking to find out if they are barred from doing so. And the federal rules don’t deal with the safety of the rail cars in which the Bakken is shipped. That’s a separate conversation going on in Washington, D.C., where the Obama Administra-

tion and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are likely to impose tougher standards for rail car construction. Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, chairman of the Senate Energy, Environment & Telecommunications Committee, said the new notification rule is “a piece of the puzzle” but tank car safety is critically important and needs addressing sooner than later.

Congress needs to act on clean water

The Water for the World Act (HR 2901) is on its way to being voted on in Congress. Clean water is an expectation for us, and by simply calling Congress, we can make it a reality for others as well. It is no secret much of the developing world doesn’t have access to clean water, but I’d like to bring to light just one of the results of not having clean water. Unsanitary water can mean diarrhea in young children. A minor irritation for children in the US, diarrhea is the second leading cause of death for children under 5 in developing countries and the first leading cause of malnutrition. The numbers are staggering: 760,000 children die a year from diarrhea. The worst part is that diarrhea is both preventable and treatable. The Water for the World Act will provide clean water. If this act is passed, hundreds of thousands of lives will be saved. Call your congressional leaders. It will take less than five minutes, and it will matter. Their numbers are available at http://borgenproject.org/ call-congress/. Simply tell them you support the Water for the World Act. Congress tallies their calls, and they will act on the voice of the people.

The former site of Salute has sat vacant for years in Old Bellevue, but that’s about to change as construction ramps up for the June opening of Local Burger, which Josh Groff says will be an extension of a Belltown restaurant for which he is also a limited partner. Local 360 opened up three years ago with the goal of sourcing at least 90 percent of its food from within 360 miles of Seattle. Narrowing that idea to opening up a great burger joint on Main Street in Bellevue seemed the obvious next move, said Groff. “We wanted to take the same mantra with local, but with a smaller focus,” he said. “… We’re just a good burger place with great beer and great wine.” Local Burger’s menu will include in-house ground burgers, appetizers, salads and eventually a biscuit brunch. Burgers are expected to range from $10-$14, and include chicken and lamb options. Groff said he’s excited to

XO opens in Bellevue

In keeping with the growing image of Bellevue as a business technology hub, Audience Science has been hiring on additional engineers and platform managers to keep up with its growing clientele. The company has had more than 100 openings in Bellevue this year, and is still hiring for about another 25. “We’re definitely kind of bursting at the seams here in the office,” Nayfeh said. Nayfeh said he expects Audience Science will continue to grow as more major advertisers move away from outsourcing to ad agencies, which are being negatively affected by reports of fraud where computers, not people, are being used to falsely generate online views of marketing materials. “It’s just insane the amount of fraud and waste that goes on in the industry,” he said. “I think that’s part of the developing story over the next few weeks and months.” The best way of proving Audience Science works is by cutting those costs associated with current digital advertising methods, Nayfeh said, and hosting the software allows the company to define an advertiser’s audience based on real data. Advertisers also pay a flat fee for the service. Audience Science is seeking new office space to absorb its growth, and will need to find something soon if business continues its upward trend. “We’ve had a tremendous expansion in Bellevue already, but we’re not through yet,” Nayfeh said.

Another win for Odle chess

Interlake teen wins open government essay contest

Odle Middle School’s chess team earned its third trophy of the year after placing 17th in team competition in Dallas May 11. Zachary Zhang, Sanford Long and Benjamin Mousseau competed among 2,000 students in the K-6 Championship. They presented their trophy to Odle principal Eric McDowell during the week of May 26. The United States Chess Federation tournament was the second national tournament in which the team participated in 2014, following their ninth place showing at Atlanta in April.

An Interlake High School senior won $1,000 for her essay on open government. The Washington Coalition for Open Government announced May 22 that Justina Chen’s essay, “On Principle,” was selected from entries throughout the state to take the top prize in the Scott Johnson Open Government Essay Contest. Chen’s essay argues for the necessity of the Open Public Meetings and Public Records acts in maintaining a government that serves its constituency. She used, as an example, a 2010 incident in which the Bellevue School Board ruled a math advisory committee’s meetings on curriculum were not public. “In 2006, however, the state attorney general’s open government ombudsman gave an informal opinion that the Puyallup School District’s instructional materials committees were a policy-making body of the district, and were thus subject to the Open Public Meetings Act,” Chen wrote in her essay. “Still, the school district elected to privately revise and implement the new math programs. The school board ignored the interests of the district students whom they are obligated to serve. Washington citizens need the Open

group as well as address other issues they are struggling with. Teens who have tried other forms of treatment have successfully healed through DBT. “A new client came to me after being released from the hospital for suicidal ideation,” says Michael Keegan, DBT coordinator for YES. “She had been in therapy for several years. Within just one year of both group and individual DBT therapy, she made amazing changes in her life. She has had no further hospitalizations and is looking forward to college later this year.” Youth Eastside Services recently expanded to offer two DBT skills programs: one for substance abuse and the other for mental health. Each group consists of a 16-week curriculum which covers four areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.

eens often turn to self-harming behaviors to cope with difficult and painful emotions. Average statistics indicate that one in 12 teens deliberately cut or harm themselves. Without help, these self-harming behaviors can be lifethreatening and can lead to death. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in Washington state for youth 10 to 24 years old and the third leading cause of death nationally. With help, teens can create a life worth living. Patti SkeltonSelf-harm is the act McGougan of hurting oneself on purpose. It is often seen in the form of cutting, burning (self-mutilation), hair-pulling and using mood-altering substances. It’s a way to cope. Teens who

VE

choose self-harm are already feeling vulnerable for a variety of different reasons. Some of these reasons include bullying, puberty, social media and other mental health issues. What often happens is that teens experience intense emotions and suffering and look for ways to make these painful feelings go away. These are very serious concerns that few parents are equipped to deal with effectively and it’s often best to seek professional help immediately. If your child is not willing to go to therapy seek support for yourself or your family. Current trends in therapy show an increase in the effectiveness of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as a treatment for life-threatening and self-harming behaviors. DBT also has been effective with teens who are struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, and behavioral issues besides self-harm. DBT is a form of therapy created by Marsha M. Linehan, a psychology re-

searcher at the University of Washington, to treat chronically suicidal individuals and people with borderline personality disorder. Over the years its effect has grown to treat a variety of other issues, including eating disorders, traumatic brain injuries and selfharming/suicidal teens. DBT has proven to help reduce self-harm, suicide attempts, substance abuse and other mental health and behavioral problems. When compared to standard treatment, a small but growing number of DBT studies have shown dramatically lower rates of selfharm, suicidal ideation and hospitalizations. At Youth Eastside Services, DBT treatment includes individual and skills group therapy. The skills group, which meets once a week for 90 minutes, consists of six to eight teens and two group leaders. Individual therapy with a DBT trained therapist is focused on helping teens integrate the skills they are learning in

Bellevue College to hold first-ever Arabic Heritage Week Bellevue College will hold an open celebration of Arabic heritage during the first week of June. The campuswide cultural event —the first of its kind, according to the Arabic Culture Student Association — will include a sukh marketplace, music, food and an Arabic film festival. The inspiration for the week came from a spontaneous moment in the campus’s

student government elections, Association member Orchideh Raisdanai said. A group of students began dancing to world music in the commons, and other students came out of their classes to watch. She thought that perhaps the best way for students to learn about the Arabic world was to put it all out there. “We’re a closeknit community, but we’re also a quiet community,” she said.

Sixteen Bellevue residents will graduate from Eastside Catholic School this year. They are: (front row) Daniel Edgerton, Lisa Kusakabe, Kelly O’Halloran, Therese Derovanessian; (middle row) Zach Wallin, Scott Hutchins, Christian Leider, Will Richards, Erik Schutzler, Keith McNabb; (back row) Sean Fite, Ryan Tarbert, Andrew Whalon, CJ Kindel, and Thomas Morrison. Not pictured is Tran Duc. The school’s graduation ceremony will be at 1 p.m. on June 8 at Benaroya Hall in Seattle. COURTESY PHOTO

Three locals bands capture honors at BHS Jazz Festival Three local jazz bands snared honors at the recent 32nd annual Bellevue High School Jazz Festival, held May 9-10. Newport High School Jazz Band I, directed by Todd Mahaffey, earned third place in the high school 4A division. Interlake High School Jazz Band I, directed by David Kim, won second place in the high school 3A division. In the high school A/ AA division, Interlake High School Jazz II, directed by Paul Gillespie, took third place. Outstanding soloists selected by judges included alto saxophonist Nick Barbarick and drummer Brandon Suzuki from Newport High School; tenor saxophonist Carlos Eine and bassist Stanley Ruvinov from Interlake High School; and Andrew McDonald and Eric Yoon from Chinook Middle School. Nearly 50 Northwest middle and high school jazz bands participated. “Thirty-two years ago, renowned drum-

mer Buddy Rich agreed to play at Bellevue High School for $5,000, so this Jazz Festival was started as a way to cover his expense and for students to compete, learn from and listen to professional musicians,” said Edd George, Bellevue High School’s director of bands. “We’re proud to have had this event continue annually and evolve into one of the largest school jazz festivals.” In addition to the school competition, the festival showcased the Bellevue High Jazz Ensemble. This year’s adjudicators included saxophonist Adam Rupert, trumpet player Jim Sisko — also the director of instrumental music at Bellevue College — Central Washington University Director of Jazz Studies Chris Bruya and trombonist Jenny Kellogg, who is Director of Jazz and Brass at Eastern Washington University. The festival is the primary fundraiser for the Bellevue High band program.

Knights to Spokane on softball diamond

Prep golfers shoot for titles at state

BY JOSH SUMAN

The 2A, 3A and 4A boys and girls state golf tournaments took place May 28 and 29, concluding after the Reporter’s deadline, with a host of locals after state championships. Marianne Li, the runnerup at the district tournament for Newport, shot 76 on her first day at Club Green Meadows in the 4A girls tournament. Li missed the postseason last year after suffering an injury late in the regular season, and is a title threat in the 4A girls tourney. Monica Kent, Lauren Nakamichi and Krystal Liang also made the field for the Knights’ girls. Travis Kay is the only Newport golfer in the 4A boys field. Grant Cole was in the first group of the day for Interlake in the 3A boys tournament. Andy Liu and Colin Joy are also in the

BELLEVUE REPORTER

With its season on the line, and facing a powerful Monroe lineup on its home diamond, Newport’s softball team knew the task of earning a 4A state tournament berth would be a formidable challenge. Seven innings and one run later, the Knights accomplished their goal, albeit in an unconventional manner, beating the Bearcats 1-0 in the district crossover game to keep their season alive another week and earn a trip to Spokane. “There are a lot of runs scored in KingCo,” head coach Hannah Olson said, adding it was the first 1-0 game she could remember. “If you had told me that would be the end of the scoring, I wouldn’t have believed it. But we’ll take it.” Junior Kathryn Wood spun a gem in the pitcher’s circle for the Knights, allowing only five base hits and one walk in a complete game shutout. Wood struck out three Monroe batters, and worked out of trouble on a handful of occasions including a two-out jam in the seventh when she stranded the tying run at third. “My teammates had my back,” Wood said. “I knew I had to have theirs, too.” Newport scored the only run of the game in the top half of the first inning, and Wood was in the middle of that as well. She opened the game with a single before moving to second on a sacrifice from India Gants, and scored on a throwing error in what would prove the decisive tally.

Newport junior pitcher Kathryn Wood saved her best for last in the circle, shutting out Monroe in a 1-0 win to send her team to the 4A state tournament. JOSH SUMAN, Bellevue Reporter “We’re so proud of her,” senior Kaitlin Sahlinger said of Wood. “We knew Kat had it and we had to have her back because she could do it in the circle.” The keeps the season alive for the Knights, who will head to Merkel Sports Complex in Spokane for the 4A state softball tournament May 30 and 31. “They are a great group of kids, and it is great to be part of,” Olson said, adding she has coached many of the upperclassmen since they were elementary schoolers. “This is all I could ask for.” Newport, winners of three straight loser-out games and four of its past five overall, will open at 10 a.m. May 30 against Bethel, with the quarterfinals set for later in the day. “We never expected this, but we’re so happy,” Sahlinger said. “It took so much hard work and it has all paid off.”

animals, earns lost pets a free ride home when found and funds shelter care, dangerous and nuisance animal responses and investigating cases of reported animal cruelty or neglect. The fine for not licensing pets is $125, and $250 for pets that have not been spayed or neutered. King County wants to apply a mandate for releasing rabies vaccination information under its board of health rather than its animal control code, which would force all 39 cities to comply and avoid a "patchwork quilt" of reporting, Satterfield said. Another benefit would be the means to determine the rate of rabies vaccinations in the county, which is not currently known, he said. While veterinarians support pet licensing, many oppose releasing the information because they say it violates doctor-patient confidentiality and may discourage pet owners from vaccinating their animals, said Kent Thomazin, president of the Puget Sound Veterinary Medical Association and local vet at the Animal Hospital of Newport Hills. "We've met with King County initially and they had a general meeting for a lot of general owners and practitioners in the fall to introduce the idea, and it was certainly met with a certain amount of resistance," Thomazin said. Thomazin said vets object to

King County being provided with vaccination records to compare them to their licensing database to find those not complying with the law. "They should stay out of the records, as far as licensing goes," said Thomas Hodges, a veterinarian with the Cat Care Clinic in Bellevue. "I think that's incredibly invasive." "We as veterinarians don't feel like it's our job to provide those databases so they can enforce licensing," Thomazin said, adding provision of those records will put a strain on practitioners' resources and result in many pet owners skipping out on rabies vaccinations. "Decreasing compliance for rabies vaccinations isn't a good thing for public health." Satterfield said the county is looking at educating pet owners about pet licensing and providing them with resources to come into compliance with the law, but would not immediately begin issuing fines to those who are not. He said notices would be sent to those who have not licensed their pets, and there would eventually have to be an enforcement component if owners do not comply with the law. King County has heard the concerns of veterinarians, he said, and is working to alleviate them. King County hopes to come to terms with veterinarians on rolling out a law that all can agree to, but Bruce Singbeil, a veterinarian with Crossroads Vet, said he's not very

optimistic their side will prevail. "In this case they're really not interested in listening to us. They just want to do what they're going to do," he said, adding the county should do more to educate pet owners rather than adding another law. "People come to us because they trust us, that's the bottom line. If we lose the trust of clients, we lose the clients, and the pets will suffer because of it." Satterfield said the proposal remains under study, and will be discussed again by the county's board of health in June, though no agreements are expected to be reached by then. King County is also looking at the successes of such programs in Oregon counties, and the states of Illinois, Alabama and West Virginia, as part of its study. The Puget Sound Veterinary Medical Association is working with the Washington State Veterinary Medical Association to monitor this potential legislation as it works its way to a vote. Thomazin said the PSVMA has been contacting its members to encourage them to express their concerns to their district councilmembers. Licenses may be purchased at Bellevue City Hall, the Crossroads mini-City Hall, Aerowood Animal Hospital and all QFC stores. Licenses can be purchased online at kingcounty.gov/pets. Brandon Macz:

METRO CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Complicating the debate is the city's draft transit master plan, which still requires final approval and will guide the city in how it foresees public transportation evolving in Bellevue. The council will receive another update June 2, followed by a public hearing June 26 and final approval slated for July 7. Councilmembers John Stokes and Jennifer Robertson also pointed to testimony from the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce that King County is now collecting sales tax revenue at 2007 levels or better, and an argument could be made that this money be drawn from to pay for Metro service. Stokes said he wants to see figures outlining the benefit to Bellevue residents of Metro buy backs before tapping the city's capital investment program. "It's not an easy question, at all," Stokes said. Robertson said she doesn't see why Metro doesn't implement fare increases now that are planned for next year, and wants to know what is happening with county transit union negotiations that were placed on hold until Prop No. 1 was decided. She also wants a breakdown of how Bellevue residents voted on the April ballot. Councilmember Kevin Wallace summarized votes in opposition to Prop No. 1 grew the further the count moved away from Seattle. Wallace said he won't support appropriating Bellevue revenue for county transit service that is Metro's responsibility, adding the city of Seattle can't correct its road traffic as easily as Bellevue can. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, whose city receives the lion's share of Metro service, is proposing an emergency ballot measure similar to Prop 1, which would provide about $40 million in revenue annually for city transit, with $3 million for a regional fund. It also includes a 0.1 percent sales tax increase and $60 car-tab fee, with $2 million to go to a $20 car-tab rebate for low-income residents. Councilmembers agreed any buy-back fix to transit should be temporary and not interfere with a stronger push by Eastside governments to get the Washington Legislature to pass a statewide transportation package. Balducci said if a plan doesn't pass in Olympia this year, there's no hope next year when legislators and the governor will be seeking reelection.

World premiere of ‘Layover’ a homecoming for Eastside filmmakers BY DANIEL NASH BELLEVUE REPORTER

This weekend, two Eastside men will see their first feature film screen publicly for the first time. “Layover,” premiering Friday and screening again Saturday as part of the Seattle International Film Festival, was written and directed by Joshua Caldwell and produced by Travis Oberlander. Both men are originally from the Sammamish Plateau — now living in Los Angeles — and friends dating back to their time as classmates at Samantha Smith Elementary School. “We made a very, very low budget indie French-language film,” Caldwell said. He added, laughing: “I almost did it in black and white, but I had to stop myself and go, no, that

That’s all for Lincoln Square Cinemas, folks. For the remainder of the Seattle International Film Festival, the Reporter will publish its picks from films playing at large throughout the festival.

Hydrangeas

The Babadook | June 6 at the Egyptian Theatre, June 7 at SIFF Cinema Uptown. 94 minutes. “The Babadook” is horror done right. This Australian flick largely eschews gore, instead leaning on its lead cast to portray an ever-heightening environment of fear and paranoia. Essie Davis — an actress hardly recognized stateside, save for a bit part in “The Matrix” sequels and a turn in “Charlotte’s Web” — plays single mother Amelia, who birthed her son on the eve of her husband’s death. Davis is meek and pitiful as a woman who can’t cope with the wild antics of her son (Noah Wiseman, in a performance both charming and frightening), can’t confront her 7-year-old loss and can’t cope with the well-intentioned meddling of her loved ones. She’s numbly going through

would be a little too noncommercial.” The film is the first full-length feature to come out of Caldwell’s company Meydenbauer Entertainment. The story follows a young Parisian woman (played by Nathalie Fay) during an unexpected overnight stay in Los Angeles, on her way to a marriage proposal that may or may not be what she wants. There’s little action and it’s heavy on dialogue, most of which is in French. It was shot “guerilla style” in public thoroughfares and private homes on a consumer DSLR camera over several weekends with a volunteer crew. Oberlander pulled doubleduty as an audio operator on some of the shoots. In the end the movie cost $6,000 to make, though it has the appearance of a production with a heftier budget. The festival has advertised “Layover” as a modern callback to the French New Wave movement of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Which was a conscious choice, Caldwell said, but it ultimately came together as a result of what he and Oberlander had available. “We both believe the best way to make a film is to just do it,” he said. “Don’t worry if it’s a little rough, just get it out there. It freed us up to be OK with a movie that’s not perfect.” You may have heard of Caldwell back in 2006. That was the year he became the first recipient of the mtvU Student Filmmaker award for his short “The Beautiful Lie,”

the motions of a miserable, if comforting, routine. The appearance of a sinister children’s book, “Mr.

Babadook,” brings Amelia’s tensions to their breaking point. As reality crumbles around Amelia, Davis’s performance is a thing to behold, vacillating from rage to confusion to passivity on a dime, without sacrificing believability. “The Babadook’s” greatest accomplishment is forcing the viewer to question who the monster really is. Is it the titular creature itself? Amelia? Amelia’s son, Samuel? The people they depend on, as they pull further away? Even when the movie seems to make the answer clear, it leaves just enough rope to hang yourself in your own doubts.

Nathalie Fay stars as a Parisian lost in Los Angeles in ‘Layover.’ COURTESY PHOTO from its old form to what it is today, which is a more fragmented, decentralized system,” Oberlander said. “The speculative marketplace for screenplays pretty much vanished overnight. And it really hasn’t come back until the last year and a half.” The major studios began reallocating their resources to big blockbusters based on proven intellectual properties. As Caldwell put it, studios were no longer greenlighting “substudio, less than $40 million budget” productions — the kinds of movies he wanted to make. But the duo wasn’t down and out in L.A.

Arts Roundup

What’s happening in the arts community

Arts fellowship awarded to Parr

Patrick Parr of Bellevue was the recipient of an Artist Trust fellowship for accomplishments in literary work. He will receive $7,500 of unrestricted funds. Parr will fulfill the requirements of his award during the year by participating in a Meet the Artist event held outside his place of residency. The purpose of Artist Trust is to outreach to underserved populations that are not aware of artists in their region.

Meetings for Bel-Red Arts District June 3 A grassroots affiliation of Bel-Red arts organizations will hold two meetings June 3 to discuss the future of the neighborhood’s Arts District. In 2009, the Bellevue City Council adopted new zoning policies that designated an Arts District in the Bel-Red Subarea Plan. The district is adjacent to the current location of the Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Francia Russell Center and was zoned to emphasize “live/work space.”

Bellevue-based mixed-media artist Amy Spassov will open her exhibit, “Antonyms,” June 4 at the Hall Spassov gallery in Downtown. According to a release from the gallery, the exhibit “uses symbolism, subtle and pointed, to tell the story of our dissimilar nature ... Each piece is riddled with antonyms adeptly placed in a manner that suggests that our differences, however big or small, are at the core of our magnificence.” “Antonyms” runs through June 30. Hall Spassov is located at 800 Bellevue Way N.E., Suite 150.

“Recently, some of us started talking about what having an arts district actually means and what we can do to make it work,” said Catherine Springman, a self-identified member of the concerned group of citizens. A successful arts district could also face challenges from rising rents in the developing area, she said. The group will hold morning and evening meetings on June 3, open to anyone. A 10 a.m. meeting will be held at the Francia Russell Center. A 7 p.m. meeting will be held at the Bellevue Brewing Company.

Caldwell continued to direct music videos and was hired by Anthony E. Zuiker, creator of “CSI,” to direct companion videos to his “Level 26: Dark Revelations” series of novels. Zuiker went on to employ Caldwell in various capacities on his other online projects and Caldwell, in turn, helped Oberlander land a writing job on Zuiker’s ABC murder mystery series, “Whodunnit?” Somewhere in between, they made time for their passion projects. Even as studios were going bigger, technology was increasingly allowing independent filmmakers to create cheaply and raise funds more easily. Caldwell and Oberlander turned to Kickstarter to fund their co-written short film “Dig,” released online in 2011. With “Layover’s” impending world premiere at SIFF — to be followed June 4 by a showing at the Dances With Films competition — Caldwell have turned to IndieGoGo to raise funds for two thematic sequels in what they’re calling the “LAX Trilogy.” “Assassin,” penned by Oberlander, will concern a female killer-for-hire who goes into hiding on Big Bear Mountain. “X” (pronounced “Ten”) is a romantic movie that strings together one man’s relationship history by assigning each of his lady loves to the typical tropes of the movies — one woman for the meeting, one the honeymoon period, another for the first fight and so on. The unfinished screenplay is being cowritten by Caldwell, Oberlander and Laura Boersma.

produced during his senior year at Fordham University. Caldwell had been putting himself behind the camera since his early teen years, producing documentaries on student issues at Bellevue High School. Around the time of the award, Caldwell had reconnected with Oberlander on Facebook. They had parted ways during elementary school after Caldwell’s family moved to Bellevue, then met again briefly when Oberlander attended a cross-district video production course at Bellevue High. Unbeknownst to each other, they had developed a parallel interest in filmmaking. Oberlander’s first job was at a video store that offered free employee rentals — up to three at a time. Every day over two summers, he would work the closing shift, check out three movies, go home and watch them backto-back overnight. “One day my boss called me in and said the system had stopped tracking my rentals,” Oberlander said. “I had taken out so many it stopped counting up. I broke the system.” Oberlander was working at IndieFlix in Seattle and had a greenlit screenplay under his belt when he reconnected with Caldwell. They decided to move down to Los Angeles with a friend, riding Caldwell’s newfound recognition to success on the speculative script market. They believed in six months — maybe a year — they would be The Next Big Thing. That was 2007. And then the Writers Guild of America, seeking greater compensation for work distributed online, voted to strike. “The writers strike changed Hollywood

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.

THE SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS HAS NO LAYOVER. Seattle isn’t the same city it was ten years ago, which means the people of Seattle aren’t flying to the same places. No one understands global reach better than an airline. That’s why Delta offers nonstop flights from Seattle to more countries than any other airline. So you can stay focused on what you need to do and not how you’re going to get there.
