Sound Transit plan hits 90%

Jubilee Reach

BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

Sound Transit has released its 90-percent design for the south Bellevue light rail station, complete with artistic additions reflective of the neighboring Mercer Slough Nature Park and an updated traffic plan for Bellevue Way Southeast. The proposed 5-year closure of the South Bellevue Park and Ride to construct the East Link light rail station continued to drum up questions from residents during the Nov. 6 open house at Enatai Elementary, particularly where King County Metro will divert its ridership and if more can be done to shore up road closures.

Every year Jubilee Reach helps thousands of Bellevue area children in a myriad of ways, said Eric Eun its the group’s director of operations. While those needs are being met, it’s

growing at a rate the nonprofit can barely sustain. The organization provides meals, clothing, even housing for those in need, and offers 38 different free after school programs across each of Bellevue’s middle schools and two elementary schools with the help of

4,000 volunteers. With nearly 20 percent students in Bellevue eligible for free or reduced lunch, the need is great, costing roughly $3.5 to $4 million in donations annually to keep each running. Artist Rendering courtesy of Sound Transit

Major construction squeezing downtown traffic BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

In a rapidly expanding downtown construction corridor, Bellevue residents are starting to feel the squeeze. Excavation work on several major projects is causing traffic congestion now, and the city cautions more development is coming. “This is just going to be part of the landscape for a couple of years or three,” said Tresa Berg, a spokeswoman for the city’s transportation department. What the city wants is for motorists and pedestrians to be cautious and informed about the latest development impacts to traffic, Berg said, and to know how to safely navigate them. “We know a bicyclist ... got hit from the back of a truck and we just know that pedestrians should be careful since there’s so many trucks making the rounds,” Berg said of an incident that occurred several weeks ago. There are currently right lane closures eastbound on Northeast 10th Street at Bellevue Way and 106th and 112th avenues northeast. Those are being used by dump trucks transporting excavated earth from development sites, such as Kemper Development’s Lincoln Square 2, which also has closed the right lane near on Bellevue Way for excavation work. Construction crews are allowed to work 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday during these earth hauling trips, with some excep-

Berg said the city is also allowing for hauling on Sundays to speed up the process. “We’ve got a holiday moratorium,” she said. “We may allow some lane closures depending on the situation that they present us.” Bellevue Way will close to northbound traffic between Northeast Fourth and Sixth streets 7 p.m. today to 9 p.m. Sunday for the erection of cranes at the Lincoln Square

2 site, with a possible one-lane reduction southbound. The northbound lane of 106th Avenue Northeast will close 9 a.m. Saturday between Northeast Second and Fourth streets until 6 p.m. Sunday for a crane erection at the Soma II project, which is slated to start construction after Christmas. Berg said the Development Services Department tries to balance projects to minimize impacts, but once a permit is issued the city can’t stop a developer from starting construction. Bellevue at Main and The Gateway project both started the permitting process at about the same time, and now are under construction adjacent to each other. “We want the economy to continue to do well,” she said. “It is another particularly busy time at the moment.” Developers are required to submit parking plans for employees, some opting to rent space from private lots. Berg said some residents have complained of people parking near construction sites to bring lunch to workers, but the city can’t enforce use of those spaces if they are within the posted time limits. Developers taking up city right-of-way space are charged a lease fee, the largest being Kemper Development for its use of Bellevue Way and Northeast Fourth and Sixth streets right of way space at more than $40,000 per month.

Overlake opts out of Snoqualmie Valley Hospital purchase Hospitals to continue collaborative efforts; Snoqualmie to open in 2015 BY DANIEL NASH ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

Courtesy photo, City of Bellevue

The Snoqualmie Valley Hospital was slated to open this fall, but will now open in early 2015.

Overlake Medical Center will not be acquiring Snoqualmie Valley Hospital as discussed earlier this year, according to a joint statement released on Nov. 7. Overlake, a private nonprofit hospital system based in Bellevue, began discussions late in 2013, communicating under a confidentiality agreement, with the King County Public Hospital District No. 4 to acquire the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and its clinics as an affiliate. In July, District No. 4’s hospital board authorized formal

Police arrest two on Southeast 30th BY JOSH STILTS

BELLEVUE REPORTER

At least two people were arrested Tuesday night, but it’s still unclear what events led up to a “swarm” of police converging on a driver’s vehicle. According to eyewitnesses, at about 5:15 p.m., a vehicle, later revealed to be a Kia Sorento, turned from Richards Roads onto Southeast 30th. A police vehicle flashed its lights and blared its siren twice causing the driver of the

vehicle to pull over. “They came out of nowhere,” said Seokkyun “Se” Hong, who was working in a building adjacent to the scene. When Se said he saw “several” police officers approach the vehicle with their weapons drawn, he jumped behind the counter in fear of shots being fired and watched the rest of the incident on his security cameras. “I’ve had a gun drawn on me before,” he told the Reporter. “Years ago while

negotiations, as reported by the Snoqualmie Valley Record. But it would seem those negotiations did not bear fruit, according to the Nov. 7 joint statement. The statement read that “leaders of both organizations mutually decided to remain independent but closely aligned and to continue collaborative efforts to serve the healthcare needs of the Snoqualmie Valley and surrounding communities.” Snoqualmie Valley Hospital District CEO Rodger McCollum suggested the organizations could continue discussions on collaborations in the future. The District began work on a new hospital in September 2013. Snoqualmie Valley Hospital, initially scheduled to open this fall, is now expected to open in early 2015.

It’s unclear at this time what the suspects had allegedly done or how the coordinated arrests were made. Bellevue Police officer and department spokesman Seth Tyler said the investigation is ongoing and no information was available

about the arrests or potential ensuing charges. Traffic was closed and then limited for roughly 20 minutes as officers investigated the scene. A dog was inside the suspect’s vehicle but didn’t appear to be part of the investigation as an officer at the scene told the Reporter it would be given to one of the suspects’ family members or handed over to a local shelter.

Republicans are feeling good, as they should be. Their party gained a seat in the state Senate to cement control of that chamber. And if late-arriving ballots break the GOP direction, the party could pick up enough seats in the House to trim Democrats’ advantage to as little as 51-47. Big winner: Environmentalists painted conservative state Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, as the antichrist of climate change, but he emerged the antihero of the election.

Family caregivers need state support

As a Washington State Council on Aging member, I send this letter because November is National Family Caregivers Month. Each year, more of us are caring for a loved one with a chronic condition, disability or simply the frailties of old age. Over 850,000 Washington citizens are unpaid family caregivers, providing 80 percent of the services that allow family members to remain at home as long as possible. Recent state agency data reports the uncompensated caregiving is estimated to be valued at $10.6 billion. Caregiving is a very human concern and a financial one as well. These unpaid caregivers lose about $300,000 in salary & benefits in their lifetime having minimal financial resources to begin with. Washington State has a Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP) but it currently only serves less than 1% of the 850,000 family caregivers in our state. Recent re-

search findings report some good news though: the FCSP improves outcomes for caregivers — 84 percent of the participants showed significant improvements and were slower to transition to more costly Medicaid services. Serving more family caregivers would be a great investment for our state. Our legislators and the governor should support expansion of FCSP. These caregivers need our support.

“deep poverty.” Deep poverty is defined as 50 percent or less of the poverty level. Between 2007 and 2013, the rate of deep poverty among low-income Washingtonians (125 percent of poverty level) grew by a startling 35.7 percent while the state’s overall population grew by 7.8 percent In real numbers, there are now 114,298 more people in our state living at the deep poverty level of around $9,800 in wages or below for a family of three than there were in 2007. That’s a lot of families in our state, and it certainly includes a lot of families who work and live in Bellevue.

City Hall taking side of builders

Progress is good and citizens should expect to accommodate new building. However there are limits and it appears that Bellevue City Hall is taking the side of builders over its citizens. There has always been a shortage of parking on North E. 1st Ave. near Bellevue Way. There is a good drycleaner and two very popular restaurants. Bellevue has decided it is more important to allow construction vehicles to sit idle in parking spaces then to allow Bellevue citizens to patronize existing city businesses. Likewise, city hall closes off a lane on Northeast 10th at 116th to ease construction traffic turning right. Citizens just need to accept gridlock rather than have the construction companies pay for a flagger. City Hall is out of touch and the citizens are inconvenienced.

Lincoln Center to provide temporary startup space for entrepreneurs BY BRANDON MACZ BELLEVUE REPORTER

The city reported just two applications were received by Monday’s deadline from entrepreneurs seeking space in the Lincoln Center complex, which is being repurposed as a business and startup incubator for its final two years in existence. Making use of the property, now slated for demolition to make way for Sound Transit’s East Link light rail extension, the city will divvy up the remaining 11,660 square feet of the Lincoln Center’s 28,000-square-foot north building to an unspecified number of qualifying applicants. They will have the option of leasing 11 available office suites at 555 116th Ave. N.E., through the end of 2016, however, one applicant may qualify for more space. The city purchased the property about a decade ago as a landholding site, which could have been used for a Northeast Sixth Street extension, a project nixed due to the East Link alignment. The business incubator project also responds to the city’s Economic Development Plan, which visions: “Bellevue is a prosperous and vibrant international city with innovative and entrepreneurial businesses and a high quality of life for residents,” according to the city’s request for proposals. The two-story “woody walk-ups” was construct-

City staff plans to provide City Council with a resolution for leasing Lincoln Center office space on Monday, Nov. 17. Emil King, strategic planning manager, told the City Council on Oct. 13, while the site will be a temporary, the city is exploring other sites for future business incubators. The city issued requests for proposals to 15 entities, which were tasked with forwarding those RFPs to the the broader startup community.

A portion of the former Albertson’s building at the Newport Hills Shopping Center is proposed to return to its former use as a grocery store called S Mart. John Walker 33 LLC., proposes converting 22,709 square feet of the building, most recently used by Stod’s Baseball as an indoor batting cage, into a grocery store,

according to the city’s weekly permit bulletin. Plans call for construction to be completed by the end of January. Rumored to be an Asian market, architect Paul Wu tells the Reporter S Mart will be more than that. Glen Dea, manager for John Walker 33 LLC., did not return a call for comment.

Mayor responds to Northtowne teardowns

Eastside winter homeless shelters open Saturday

BELLEVUE REPORTER

Responding to residents upset by the number of rambler teardowns in the Northtowne neighborhood being replaced by large, multimillion-dollar homes, Bellevue Mayor Claudia Balducci on Monday called for increased study and outreach ahead of subarea planning next year. Monday was the second night in as many weeks that members of the Northtowne Neighborhood Association told councilmembers they are worried how these larger developments are affecting the integrity of their neighborhood and exacerbating traffic issues there. “It’s a trend that you actually do see during an up-cycle in the development cycle,” Balducci said Monday. One club member on its steering committee told the Reporter Tuesday the group reenergized in 2013 to address speeding drivers on Bellevue Way, but then teardowns began occur-

The city is working to address concerns from residents in the Northtowne neighborhood over a ramp up in construction of large, multimillion-dollar homes on top of old rambler-style teardowns. ring, now at around 44 over the past 18 months. Members of the association are also upset that much of the new developments are speculative homes that sit vacant for months. Balducci said she’s interested in exploring ideas presented by the neighborhood association about amending rules for what types of homes can be built in Northtowne, such as a proposal to short plat some properties to allow more cottage-style homes to be built on a smaller footprint. “They took an interest. They asked for it to go forward to staff for investigation,” said Janet Jelleff with the association. “We’ve been asking for this for a while and I think this was a major breakthrough for us.” Jelleff said Northtowne residents don’t oppose tearing down aging homes, but want their replacements to be more in scale to those that already exist. She said demand for property

in her neighborhood is so high, she and other neighbors are frequently solicited by investors wanting to buy their homes. Councilmember John Stokes noted other neighborhoods in Bellevue might not prefer the city imposing smaller lot sizes, but Balducci said specialized policies have been implemented before, such as more stringent tree restrictions in Bridle Trails that do not exist throughout the rest of the city. Stokes said he favors a comprehensive analysis of all Bellevue neighborhoods, not simply putting those at the top of the city’s priority list based on the number of complaints received. Part of that will involve renewed visions for each neighborhood that would guide regulations for building heights and setbacks in the future.

The city of Bellevue will open its Eastside Winter Shelter for homeless men at the International Paper site starting Saturday, Nov. 15. Catholic Community Services will open its women’s shelter at the St Peter’s United Methodist Church in Bellevue that same day through January, when it moves to the Redmond United Methodist Church. The men’s shelter is expected to provide shelter through March. The International Paper site is at 1899 120th Ave. N.E., and homeless men will be able to use the site 8 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. The shelters are also seeking community donations to provide meals. More information about the meal program can be found at www.tinyurl.com/lt7dg9r. For more information about the Eastside winter shelters, contact Congregations for the Homeless at 425372-7252 or dwightj@cfhomeless.org; or Catholic Community Services at 206-437-7448 or eileenm@ccsw.org.

Group raising funds to buy sleeping bags for King County homeless About 3,100 homeless in King County will sleep on the streets as the colder, wetter winter months roll through the need for warm, dry comfort is greater than ever. When Interlake High School senior Lily Zhuo heard about a new nonprofit group, Sleepless in Seattle, working to provide sleeping bags for all of the homeless through a crowdsourcing campaign, she joined immediately. The group is hoping to raise $75,000 by Thanksgiving, she said. As of Tuesday afternoon they had reached 41 percent of the goal with $20,700 donated. An anonymous donor also agreed to a $25,000 onefor-one matching gift. Each $20 donation will now provide two sleeping bags instead of just one, according to the group’s website. If the group meets its goal, 200 volunteers are ready to distribute the sleeping bags on Saturday, Dec. 13, at Serve Seattle.

Vegas singer Sheldon Craig will be performing a songbook from musical legend Nat ‘King’ Cole Nov. 16 at 2 p.m.

UPAC hosts ‘Unforgettable’ The Unity of Bellevue church is taking full advantage of its newly renovated performing arts center this month with three different shows set to hit the stage. On Sunday, Nov. 16 at 2 p.m., Purple Phoenix Productions is hosting its next salute to musical legends with singer Sheldon Craig and the Purple Phoenix Orchestra performing “Unforgettable: the Nat ‘King’ Cole Songbook. Craig, whose Broadway and acting credits include Ragtime, Smokey Joe’s Cafe, Starlight Express, and Dreamgirls, is slated to perform more than 30 of Cole’s greatest hits including “Mona Lisa,” “Lush Life,” “Walking My Baby Back Home,” and his iconic hit “Unforgettable.” Tickets for start at $20 for general admission and $15 for students under the age of 16.

Tom Moran and his wife Val Cole love Pearl Jam so much that when the Bellevue couple got married a couple years ago the bride walked down the aisle to the band’s hit “Just Breathe.” So when the opportunity arose to bid on a once-in-alifetime opportunity to see Pearl Jam’s front man Eddie Vedder at an intimate solo show in Bellevue late last month and sit on stage with him for a song. They hit the auction hard, bidding and bidding hoping for the chance to have Eddie play “their song” to them. When they found out where the money was going they raised their bid even higher. A few months ago Eddie and his wife Jill became founder members of the largest nonprofit dedicated to finding a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a

with these types of genetic disorders.” Both Tom and his wife have lost loved ones to genetic disorders and some of their friends are currently suffering from EB. It was a no brainer to donate as much as they could, he said. In October, the newly merged group, EB Research Partnership, a joint collaboration between the Vedders, the Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation and Heal EB, joined forces with Microsoft’s Employee Giving Campaign in an effort to raise $5 million for research. As part of the fundraising effort, Vedder played a solo show at Microsoft Production Studios in front of 90 donors, including Tom and Val, who also won the chance to sit on stage with Eddie drinking wine while he serranded them with “Just Breathe.” All of the money raised by the concert was donated to help fund research by Dr. Jakub Tolar, at the University of Minnesota, who is currently working to advance gene and cellular engineering research. “EB is a horrible genetic disorder, where

kids suffering from it are referred to as ‘butterfly children’ because their so fragile,” Tom told the Reporter. “These kids just want to be kids, and don’t understand why they can’t play, why they may feel like their body is on fire, why they’re constantly in pain.” The good news, Tom said, is that cures are within reach, but it requires funding to research and provide treatment. EB Research Partnership Chairman Alex Silver said the money raised at the concert will go a long way to help further those cures but much more is needed. “As families impacted by rare diseases know all too well, it is difficult to access sufficient research dollars to make a true impact on the development of new treatments and cures,” Silver said. Dr. Tolar’s research is currently using genomic mapping techniques to essentially fix a child’s DNA before birth. If successful the technique could be used to cure more than 5,000 other rare diseases currently affecting 10 percent of the U.S. population.

‘Glee’ star to share success story at BC BY JOSH STILTS BELLEVUE REPORTER

Lauren Potter has a simple message for everyone, “be exception.” As one of the stars of the hit TV show “Glee,” Potter plays Becky Jackson, the spunky student with special needs. But it certainly wasn’t an easy path for Potter who was consistently told what she couldn’t be or do, it drove her to work harder. Barriers put in front of her fueled her to show what she was capable of. Like her character on the show, Potter wants to encourage everyone to not take life for granted and not be discouraged when facing adversity. Potter said she wants to use her public voice that “Glee” gave her to speak our for other people with disabilities who may not have the same opportunities. This weekend, as part of her “Living a Glee-ful life” tour, Potter will share her story of perseverance. The event, sponsored by ParentMap will be held at Bellevue College’s Student Union Building Cafeteria on Nov. 15, starting at 2 p.m. A resource fair for special needs families will be followed by speakers Steven Ferreira, a Bellevue College alum who was born with cerebral palsy, and Ben Wahl, founder of Ryther’s Aspiring Youth Program, which serves young people with Autism, ADHD and other neurological differences. Ferreira, was born in Taipei Taiwan in 1988, but at 15 decided he wanted to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities. Since then he’s spoke more than 150 times at regional high schools about what it’s like to live with a disability. In 2011, he founded Beyond Disabilities, a nonprofit designed to spread further awareness of people with disabilities. Potter is scheduled to present the event’s keynote address followed by a question and answer session with audience

Staging your home for a rapid sale

D

id you know that most potential buyers form an opinion of the home they are visiting in the first 90 seconds? That 90 percent of people are incapable of imagining living in a home that has not been prepped? There are some very specific techniques you can apply to neutralize your property so that it will please the majority of buyers, influence the sale price, and reduce the length of time your home is on the market. The first step in the “staging” of your home is to create new arrangements with your furniture. This will highlight the positive aspects of your living space, such as open areas, ease of circulation, size, light, and the main purpose of each room. It is important to create as much room as possible so that visitors have an impres-

sion of space and dimension.

9857 NE 29th St, Bellevue

To do this, keep only the furniture necessary for daily life, such as the kitchen or dining room table, the sofa, chairs, and other decorative elements that are both simple and neutral. Walls, shelving units, and kitchen counters should be populated very sparingly. Art works, family photographs, and ornaments are all elements that could put potential buyers off. Personal items tend to distract visitors and prevent them from being able to imagine living in your home.

Comfort & Style West Bellevue

The idea is to depersonalize your rooms, to make them neutral by opting for a white wall instead of your beloved flowery wallpaper, for example, which not everyone will like. Choose a restrained, elegant decor that will attract a young couple as much as a family.

T

he ups and downs of the real estate market over the last half dozen years have led to some game-changing innovations in that sector. Most especially, realtors have seen a rise in the marketing of properties online and a decline in conventional sales strategies, such as weekend open house events. That trend might reflect the needs of sellers, but many prospective buyers feel that there is still a place for the Saturday/Sunday open house in the house-hunting game. Although the National Association of Realtors reports that fewer sellers are bothering with the open house concept, many buyers still rely on open visits to get a feel for the market in a given area and to be able to compare prices versus value. NAR statistics affirm that 45 percent of buyers use open house visits as a means

to find a new home. Those most likely to attend an open house are married couples, people aged 45-64, and buyers who do not use English as their first language at home. It is certainly practical to be able to peruse online a room-by-room photo album of a property, but it is a precious opportunity to be able to walk through a house without an appointment or without any pressure to make an offer. And if buyers notice that the same home has opened its doors over several weekends in a row, it might mean it is a slow-to-move property. While such a possibility deserves a bit of investigation, it could also indicate that the seller is in a position to make significant concessions in their asking price.

King County reports the average family throws out about 25 percent of its grocery purchases, and its Food: Too Good to Waste campaign was “a slap in the face” for Bellevue resident Mary Priestley-Fine when she took stock of her losses. Priestley-Fine was one of 36 King County residents — six in Bellevue — to participate in the campaign’s four-week challenge to reduce food waste, documenting what she and her husband through out every week and finding ways to bring that number down. “You hear that we waste a lot of food and, until you stop and take note of how much you’re wasting or throwing out, I don’t think you realize until it’s sitting in front of you just what that volume is,” she said. Priestley-Fine said even after compacting her family’s first week of waste it measured 26 inches, which was partly due to her son and daughter being out of the house now

and needing to find more creative ways to use produce received through their community-supported agriculture group. “That bag gets quite full, quite fast,” she said. “I found that I wasn’t doing anything with my (CSA) share as best as I needed to, so I was tossing about half of it.” Receiving tips and resources from staff within King County’s Solid Waste Division, which headed the Food: Too Good to Wate campaign, and correcting her food purchases led to a positive reduction in waste for Priestley-Fine by the end of the challenge, she said. “More than the waste was just the cash, the dollars that were going into that bag,” she said. “I have to tell you no matter where you are in life, that’s frustrating.” To find out more about the Food: Too Good to Waste campaign and how to sign up for the next challenge, go to this shortened link: http://1.usa.gov/1sEJpNT. “I think everyone should try it,” PriestleyFine said, “ I really do.”

It didn’t take long for the Bellevue Wolverines to impose their will in last week’s winner-to-state, loser-out playoff football game against the Bishop Blanchet Braves. On Bellevue’s third offensive play from scrimmage, quarterback Justus Rogers connected with receiver Tyson Penn on a 66-yard touchdown pass, giving the Wolverines an early 7-0 lead last week.

The 2014 season has been memorable in every way for the Bellevue Wolverines girls soccer team and tomorrow could be the icing on the cake. Bellevue, which has compiled an overall record of 17-0, will host the Arlington Eagles in the Class 4A state quarterfinals on Nov. 15 at Bellevue High School. Sophomore forward Jojo Harber is excelling in her first season in the starting lineup, scoring 14 goals thus far. Harber embraces the role of being one of the Wolverines go-to players on offense. “It’s very tough to score goals. Some people may not think it is tough, but it’s not easy,” Harber said. “My best strengths are my speed and creativity. I like being creative and doing whats not expected. I like making an impact and helping out the team as much as possible.” Wolverines’ head coach Matt Dorman is glad Harber is on his team through the 2016 season. “She’s a special talent. It’s exciting having a player of her caliber on the

team. She has an ability to be able to beat a defender in a 1-on-1 situation, which many players have trouble doing,” Dorman said. “You always know there is a chance we are going to get a goal when she has a defender 1-on-1.” Being one of the youngest players on the varsity roster doesn’t faze

El Niño promising warmer winter weather BY BRYAN TRUDE

STAFF REPORT

ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

BELLEVUE REPORTER

An active El Niño cycle is expected to bring higher than average temperatures to the Eastside this winter. However the change probably will be so negligible that many would fail to notice it. After a warmer, drier summer than normal across the Puget Sound, the Eastside communities of Issaquah, Sammamish and Bellevue are expected to be in for a warmer, drier winter, according to Meteorologist Josh Smith with the National Weather Service’s Seattle office. “The Climate Prediction Center is predicting an above normal average tem-

In its quest to find money-saving opportunities the King County Council unanimously approved the creation of a full-time, independent auditor for Metro Transit. Authored by council member Rod Dembowski, the independent auditor will be tasked to find potential savings and efficiencies in a budget approaching $1 billion annually. Dembowski said he wrote the legislation after hearing county residents calls for reviewing Metro Transit funding and spending. “Government must be accountable, efficient and transparent,” Dembowski said. According to the council member previous audits of Metro Transit have consistently found savings opportunities and potential improvements. An audit completed in 2009 resulted in nearly $800 million in net positive impact for the agency, according to Dembowski. The newly approved position will be required to file a report summarizing the results of their work in the past 24 months to the King County Council and the public by July 1 of every even-numbered year.

perature this winter,” Smith said, “with a slight chance for slightly below average precipitation.” The temperature variations can be tied directly to El Niño, a warming cycle of equatorial waters in the southern Pacific Ocean, which impacts climate and weather for countries all along the Pacific. The phenomenon draws its name — Spanish for “The Child,” referring to Jesus Christ — since it usually occurs and is most intense near Christmas. El Niño conditions have impacts around the world, with many countries near the equator reporting increased risks of mosquito-born diseases such as malaria and dengue fever

during the cycle. In the Eastside, while El Niño is expected to keep temperatures warmer, the slight chance for belowaverage precipitation is not tied to the phenomenon, according to Smith. Despite the forecast, actual impacts are not expected to be drastic. While average highs in the Eastside region hover in the mid-40s in the winter, El Niño is expected to increase those averages into the upper 40s. “These climate predictions never affect the weather that much,” Smith said. “There is generally

only a few degrees of difference across the entire period.” The warmer and drier winter expected for the Eastside should mirror conditions throughout Seattle and much of the Sound region, University of Washington Professor of Atmospheric Sciences and weather blogger Cliff Mass said. Mass’ blog is available on the Reporter website. For more information or a more up-to-date weather forecast for the week ahead, visit www.weather. gov/seattle.

driver. Three other troopers used their vehicles to pin the driver inside the truck just before exit 11. “The pursuit ended great,” Webb said. “No one was hurt ... it was textbook.” Webb said it was unclear if the man was resisting ar-

rest following the successful PIT, as they had to pull the driver out of the truck. One state patrol vehicle suffered moderate damage and another “cosmetic” damage. The suspect’s truck had several cracks and bends on its bumper.

from 72 percent to 92 percent. Bereano said a lot of students were having in trouble in algebra in particular, so one of the coaches sat in class with them as well as tutored them after school. He already knew the homework they were going go have to tackle because he was in the class. The combination of a caring community partner and a team of teachers providing quality education made it possible for students to excel in places they never though possible, she said. “Often times kids may feel disconnected from school, they may not have that positive relationship with a staff member, but the site coaches have been very successful in that,” Beareano said. The “power” of having those coaches at school during the day also greatly reduced the number of detentions. In the 2008/2009 school year the school administration issued 101 detentions. Last year there were just 29 incidents that required a detention and this year the school has essentially stopped giving them out, opting instead to focus on reteaching and allowing the students to learn from their mistakes, the principal said.

“When people think of Bellevue they think rich, in Seattle poverty is clearly present, here it’s invisible … it’s masked” Eun said. This Saturday Jubilee Reach is hosting its annual Festival of Trees, a fundraiser held at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue Grand Ballroom starting at 5 p.m. The $150 plate dinner prepared by chef Gene Cunningham, includes select wines, access to a silent auction for fully decorated Christmas Trees and themed gift packages from sponsors and live music from Moxie. All of the money raised will go to help fund the after school programs, and provide support for the more than 490 families locally, through its Community Care program. With the help of Jubilee Reach, students are showing remarkable improvement in and out of the classroom, Eun said. At Highland Middle School, where nearly half of its student population is eligible for free or reduced lunch, the students have seen firsthand the

benefit of Jubilee Reach, serving as major part of the school’s recent success, he said. Based on President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind legislation, Highland went through a “restructuring process,” said principal Anissa Bereano. Sixth grade blocks were grouped together so students had the same instructor for language arts, social studies and math. In doing so, the students didn’t have to deal with as much transitions from different classrooms and were able to build stronger relationships with their teacher, she said. At the same time, the school also brought in coaches from Jubilee Reach to help build those relationships and encourage the student participation carrying over their influence from after school activities into the classrooms. “A lot of great things happened at once,” Bereano said. “One of our biggest focuses was positive relationships, if they could have positive experiences at the school after class it would carry over to their school work.” And it did. Between 2009 and 2014 the number of students passing state testing grew

15%

According to Webb, the man is facing at least felony eluding and reckless DUI, but could face additional charges. During the pursuit the man was throwing items out of his window. Reporter staff at the scene

witnessed at least two large jars of marijuana inside a backpack in the vehicle. Traffic was limited to the HOV lane while police investigated the end of chase, backing up cars up to six miles.

closures of one northbound lane on Bellevue Way Southeast to underground utilities starting in mid-2015. The city will also take more than a year to manage its utility work there, but will not be limited to working only weekends. During East Link construction to follow, Sound Transit plans to keep two lanes of Bellevue Way open to peak traffic, which will be accomplished using a third, reversible lane to address changes in usage heading north or south. This construction is estimated to last 36-48 months. A southbound high-occupancy vehicle lane is also planned for Bellevue Way Southeast ahead of East Link going online in 2023. Sound Transit engineer Paul Cornish said Metro is working on bus route revisions ahead of the park-and-ride’s closure while Sound Transit looks at alternate parking options, such as leasing space from the private sector or possibly moving parking to Mercer Island. Utilities work on 112th Avenue Southeast is also expected to reduce traffic to one lane in each direction for about 18 months. Sound Transit’s 5-year timeline to construct the south Bellevue light rail station and adjacent 1,500-stall parking garage was scaled back from the seven years originally projected for completion. Excavation work is planned to start in 2016. About 4,500 daily boardings are estimated to take place there by 2030.

‘Rescue’ your next best friend

The 5-story parking garage will consist of two levels below grade, the third story at street level and accessible through the park-and-ride’s current entrance. A south entrance will access the garage at the second floor, said John Walser, a senior architect with Sound Transit. Commuters entering the station will see a bannered ceiling element in fall colors, the main sidewalks circulating the station patterned to resemble the planks used for Mercer Slough boardwalks, Walser said. Seattle artists Katy Stone and Vicki Scuri were commissioned to turn the light rail station’s gray preliminary designs into a colorful homage to the surrounding nature park, spending months touring the slough for inspiration, said Barbara Luecke, manager for Sound Transit’s art program, STart. Stone incorporated cattail formations along the garage’s facade, which will be visible from the station platform, and Scuri designed hexagonally patterned leaf screens that will wrap around guideway support columns. A nature-based pattern will also run along the acoustic panels of the guideway. As for accessing the slough itself during construction, Walser said a temporary parking lot will be sited south of the park-and-ride. “That really will be the only access point during construction,” he said.
