High school students may get to sleep in a little later next year after the Bellevue School Board voted Oct. 6 to approve a conditional 8:30 a.m. start time for district high schools. The new start time tentatively will begin in fall 2016. The start time is subject to board approval of an implementation plan that includes a feasibility study at each school, a solution brought up after lively discussion by the board over the role that the homework load might play in teenagers sleep schedules, scheduling and the conflict with extra-curricular activities. “This is the third iteration of this I’ve seen in my 12 years on the board, and it has never gotten to this point, so something is different this time,” said board member Chris Marks, adding “We’re getting lost in three of the 12 million details we can’t decide right now.” Given that Bellevue high schoolers utilize public buses, the district will need to work with King County Metro to add additional routes — at $50,000 each. How a later school release would affect student athletes also has yet to be decided. Also unknown is what kind of impact the decision will have on the many Bellevue students who participate in regional sports as the district’s sports teams regularly compete against neighboring districts and in KingCo. tournaments. “I think we need to recognize the impact on the first two or so years of students.

Open Window School students to send experiment to space station School one of 22 in U.S. and Canada, only in state, chosen for Student Spaceflight Experiments Program BY ALLISON DEANGELIS

Allison DeAngelis, Bellevue Reporter


Open Window School students next scientific experiment will be out of this world. The school is one of only 22 in the U.S. and Canada chosen to submit experiments to fly on Mission 9 to the International Space Station next spring as part of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP). It is the only school in the state to participate this year. “We’ve done a lot of amazing things, but we’ve never gone to space before,” said Jeff Stroebel, principal of the school situated near Cougar Mountain Regional Wildlife Park. Students grades 4 through 8 will design microgravity experiments, one of which will be chosen to be conducted on the International Space Station. The experiments could cover many fields, including seed germination, crystal growth, physiology and life cycles of microorganisms, cell biology and growth, food studies and studies of micro-aquatic life. The experiments must be designed to work within the constraints of a Fluids Mixing Enclosure

(FME) research mini-laboratory and pass a NASA Flight Safety Review. The laboratory on the International Space Station is the only microgravity lab in existence. Jeff Goldstein of the spaceflight program spoke to Open Window School students over Skype on Oct. 2. “Just like Neil Armstrong inspired me, this project was designed to inspire you,” he told the K-8 crowd. In addition to creating and testing their experiments, the student groups also will write a five-page research proposal this month. They will then present their proposed experiments to a panel of master STEM educators and local researchers who will choose the top three experiments to be proposed for the space station. “This is real world, authentic research,” said Adrienne Gifford, the school’s director of innovation and technology who has spearheaded Open Window’s participation in the program. “As a researcher, you have to be good at science, but you also have to have good communication skills. Our students are going to get those skills much earlier than students generally do.” Last year, the Open Window School conducted a weather balloon experiment. Later, a parent approached Gifford after learning about the spaceflight program. “It really is the next step in space exploration for our students,” Gifford said. Gifford and a team of administrators and teachers scrambled to complete the application, which was due mere days after the parent and Gifford discovered the program. The program is undertaken by the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education. While designing the experiment will be relegated to the upper grade levels, the entire school will participate. Students will design two mission patches to be worn in space – one created by kindergarteners through third graders, the other by fourth through eighth graders. The Open Window School expects to hear what experiment has been selected to be tested in the International Space Station in December. Although no official launch date has been set at this time, Mission 9 will launch sometime this spring. Allison DeAngelis: 425-453-4290;

Bellevue College implementing new security measures

College reassessing campus safety after campus shootings elsewhere BY ALLISON DEANGELIS BELLEVUE REPORTER

In the wake of two shootings in the past 16 months at Northwest college campuses, Bellevue College is in the process of reassessing and implementing new security measures that it hopes will help increase safety while maintaining the open, unencumbered feeling of a community college campus. The school notes it has many safety measures and contingencies in place, including an alert system and partnerships with the Bellevue fire and police departments along with the North East King County Regional Public Safety Communication Agency (NORCOM).

And the college has run multiple lockdown drills this year and is increasing the number of public safety officers and their patrols on campus. BC also has a Behavior Intervention Team for students, teachers and faculty to submit concerns over changes in students’ behavior or alarming incidents and have representatives follow-up. “I think we are doing a good job, but there’s always more than can be done,” Bellevue College spokesperson Evan Epstein told the Reporter. “It’s more about not ever feeling complacent, continually going through processes, procedures, figuring out what supports you need to have for staff and students.”

Bellevue College began reassessing its security measures after the June 5, 2014 shooting at Seattle Pacific University last year. And just last week, a student brought multiple guns to Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, and killed nine people and injured nine others. “Seattle Pacific really drove home the need to be able to secure our classrooms,” Epstein said, adding that the shooting at Umpqua was really unfortunate. Preparing Bellevue College for potential incidents is doubly challenging because of the school’s layout. The main campus has a myriad of entrances and exits and classrooms doors are not contained within securable wings, but generally exposed to the courtyards and pathways. That, and maintaining the open feeling of the campus, are the reasons why the school does not use metal detectors. “It’s really a balancing act to find a way to make sure that you are doing everything in your power to make campus both inclusive and safe and not overstep that boundary.

You don’t want students to feel like you’re watching them,” Epstein said. That said, the school has begun outfitting their instructors with universal keys that can be used to lock any classroom from the inside. The project should be fully implemented in the next few months. BC also is in the midst of developing a new training program, tentatively called the Defense Security Initiative, in which staff and faculty would learn de-escalation, self-defense and other tactics currently being taught to the college’s public safety officers. Instruction will begin for employees in 2016. Currently, the public safety team at Bellevue College offers three different trainings for faculty members. Between 50 and 60 employees are trained in the highest level of training. When it comes to campus security and eliminating violence, there are no steadfast answers, Epstein said. But, she said, Bellevue College is committed to trying to make its campus as safe as possible. Allison DeAngelis: 425-453-

Intersections need to be safer


hile the tragic accident at 140th Avenue Northeast and Bel-Red Road continues to be investigated, two letter writers on this page have raised issues that we suspect are on many people’s minds. n Do left-turn flashing yellow arrows make intersections safer? and n Are Bellevue pedestrians at risk because sidewalks have little room if people need to escape an oncoming car? In the Sept. 29 accident, a 28-month-old toddler was killed when one car struck another, shoving it onto a sidewalk and into the child’s stroller. The city say the flashing yellow arrows are safer than what was there before: a green light that governed all motorists and simply says “go.” We agree. The problem is that far too many drivers will do almost anything to not get stopped at a traffic light. Often that means speeding up to clear the intersection when it is obvious that they easily could stop. Equally bad, drivers who force themselves through a turn as the light turns yellow can face that oncoming driver who has sped up. Bellevue says it plans to re-educate the public about how to use flashing yellow arrows. That’s good. But it won’t necessarily stop drivers who stomp on the accelerator when they see a yellow light. Perhaps a few traffic officers at busy — and dangerous — intersections could stop overly eager drivers and write a ticket, if warranted. However, even if drivers are in the right, it doesn’t mean they’re driving safely. There should be nothing wrong with an office pulling someone over and explaining to them — one on one — the danger of their actions to themselves and others. If they listen — and get the message — we’ll have a safer city. That should benefit both our streets and sidewalks. — Craig Groshart, Interim Editor

To the editor Flashing yellow should be removed

The flashing yellow traffic signals should be eliminated from the city’s traffic control system. These signals tend to encourage the kind of driving behavior that resulted in the recent death of the child at 140th Avenue Northeast and Bel-Red Road. I live near this intersection and enter it several times each day; it is a dangerous intersection and, at one time, had the highest intersection accident rate in the city. I believe the flashing yellow signals are totally unnecessary. Though they may increase, slightly, the turning through-put of vehicles at the signaled intersections where they operate, this slight increase can only be achieved with an accompanying increase in the risk of accidents at those intersections. Moreover, many drivers in the city exhibit very aggressive driving behavior (though some may not be residents of the city). Such behavior in conjunction with the flashing yellow signals can result in serious accidents. I urge you to direct the removal of these signals from the city’s traffic control system.

Pedestrians need better streets

Like many other communities, some streets in Bellevue were built in an era of cars. At that time, driving seemed the only viable way to get around in a suburban area. Along these streets, sidewalks are narrow and cars travel fast. There is no buffer between pedestrians and cars. Such a street is 140th Avenue Northeast near Bel-Red Road. It is not pedestrian friendly. Over time, more and more people start walking along 140th Avenue Northeast because of community destinations close by. Parents walk their children to Stevenson Elementary School a few blocks away. Young couples walk back to their apartments with Safeway grocery bags in hand. Employees hurry to their bus stops in the morning. Mothers push their babies in strollers to go to the park when the sun is out. It is a popular route. Unfortunately, the street geometric layout does not match its popularity, which puts pedestrians, always the vulnerable party in accidents, in a precarious position.

During the occurrence of an accident, there is no landscape buffer to hinder a car from wrongly going onto the sidewalk. Neither does the five-foot wide sidewalk leave any no space for pedestrians to maneuver. Our streets put pedestrians at the mercy of drivers, some of whom do drive recklessly. Safety is a fundamental right of all users of our streets. We need to make our streets much more forgiving for pedestrians. Pedestrians deserve safer streets.

Armed security needed

First off the shootings in Oregon are a despicable act by a despicable individual. The shooter’s father absolves himself of any culpability in his son’s act by calling for gun control. A popular bromide echoed by the president and the mainstream media. However, the issue here is more protection not less — armed security for schools and large public areas. Scary thought possibly, but it sure beats the alternative. It is a fact that these shooters avoid areas where they might immediately get shot. Also, there is no country in the world today where a determined person cannot obtain a firearm, be it Australia, Russia or China. The mental health issue is even more problematical. If there were some Orwellian test to ferret out these homicidal loners, that would be the desirable outcome. Frankly, I have no idea how that might occur.

Fashion event highlights Bellevue

It’s pleasant to see that the city of Bellevue, Kemper Development Company, Vogue magazine, Fashion Group International and fashion industry enthusiasts shine a much deserved light on the abundance of creative talent residing in the Northwest. Also wonderful to see the fashion industry doesn’t limit itself to supporting the cherished Los Angeles and New York markets and decides to pique its interest in this diverse region. It will be interesting to see the evolution of Northwest fashion. It never hurts to ask Vogue or another beloved fashion magazine to set up a regional office right here in Bellevue.

City Council fixes mistake in Old Bellevue parking space ordinance BY ALLISON DEANGELIS BELLEVUE REPORTER

The Bellevue City Council admitted there had been a mistake in a code application relating to parking in Old Bellevue, causing a small parking deficit. The council unanimously passed an ordinance Oct. 5 to right old wrongs made in a 1998 ordinance. Prior to 1998, the city didn’t require parking for the first 1,500 square feet of a property constructed for restaurants or retail in Old Bellevue. The ordinance adopted in 1998 introduced an exemption that allowed the parking requirement to be waived for existing buildings. Due to a lack of clarity around the definition of “existing building” since the 1998 ordinance, the parking exemption has been inconsistently applied, the city reported. As a result, the Main Place Apartments, One Main and Borgata developments received an exemption they should not have been subject to. The mistake caused a deficit of 24 parking stalls, the new ordinance shows, but 29 on-street parking stalls added between Northeast First and Fourth streets over the last few years have alleviated the deficit. Under the ordinance

adopted Oct. 5, the city clarified that any building in existence or vested in as of Dec. 31, 2006 will be allowed the exemption. The Main Place Apartments, One Main and Borgata developments were grandfathered in, and will not need to construct new parking. The new ordinance was not without discussion, and underwent three versions as the council decided on the grandfather clause. Area business owners also contended that the ordinance as passed would disadvantage them against the residences on Main Street. “Some points that I really want to make are what you’re actually voting for: Increasing cost of monitoring private and public parking adjacent to the Borgata and One Main, allowing Borgata and One Main customers to take up private and public parking intended for neighboring businesses … allowing increased traffic because of cars circling,” said Anna Flora, who spoke at the Oct. 5 meeting. Flora also said she feared that because of the way the code is written, seven additional buildings would be grandfathered in. When asked by the council, Carol Helland, of the Development Services Department,

A brewpub will soon join the residences and offices planned for the new Spring District development in the Bel-Red corridor. Developers filed paperwork last month for a new three-story mixeduse building with 10,000 square feet dedicated to a brewery and restaurant on the ground floor. The 4,700-square-foot brewery will be connected to a nearly 5,400-square-foot restaurant on the ground level, with nearly 14,300 square feet of office space located on the two upper levels. It also will include 70 parking spaces. The brewery and restaurant are the first specific social aspects of the new development to be announced. “It’s designed as a central hub of activity which encourages interaction and idea generation,” said said spokesperson Forrest Carman. A brewery has not yet been named for the development, Carman said. Depending on the

Local group to tackle affordable housing concerns First Q&A panel set for Oct. 14 BY ALLISON DEANGELIS BELLEVUE REPORTER

A local man has teamed up with the Downtown Action to Save Housing (DASH) to get public feedback and information to help problem-solve the city’s affordable housing issues. “Part of my job had always been to figure out how to make things happen,” said resident, retired engineer and Downtown Bellevue Residents Association co-chair Dwight Schrag. “This is really something I think is worthy of spending time on, though it’s a whole new world for me. Schrag and Alicia Campo, associate executive director of DASH, have been gathering more information on afford-

Get to

able housing and what residents are really looking for. They see a great deal of opportunity, especially when it comes to awareness around the issue of affordable housing. “When we began to inform ourselves about what affordable housing means, it surprised us all,” Schrag said.“I don’t think that people know what’s going on with housing, they probably think that it’s on the government to solve this.… This is the time to engage.” Despite the vast amount of construction underway in Downtown Bellevue, “affordable” housing options remain scarce, not only for lowincome families, but also middle-class families. In fact, 62 percent of the housing allocated through DASH is for households in the 50- to 60-percent wage percentile, Campo said. The remaining clientele DASH

serves are lower-income households, generally in the 30-40 percent wage percentile. “At every property, our vacancy is very minimal. We have lists of people waiting,” said Campo. “Affordable housing isn’t just about low-income families – It’s about firefighters, teachers, city employees, etc.” Those who can’t find affordable housing in Downtown Bellevue are often forced to move outside of Bellevue, lengthening their commute, raising their transportation costs, clogging the roadways and causing stress. But as they met with city officials, the residents association found that the city’s Planning Department will be launching a “Housing Strategy Plan” to begin addressing affordable housing issues and growing needs. Seeing the fortuitous timing, the association began to organize a Q&A panel with representatives from the city, DASH, Imagine Housing, the King County Housing Authority, the Low Income Housing Institute, The Sophia Way and the YMCA. “Creating affordable housing is definitely a lot

about partnerships. This is a great place to start the conversation on the Eastside,” said Campo. Through the Q&A discussion and an attendee questionnaire, the residents association is looking to get feedback from the Downtown Bellevue community about what it wants from affordable housing – how it want it to look, the amenities and how it will fit into the neighborhood. All of the information it gathers will be turned over to the city to assist with the housing strategy plan. At this time, the association’s forum is focusing on Downtown Bellevue, but is asking residents of other neighborhoods to attend. If all goes well, Schrag and Campo said they could see this panel being replicated in other neighborhoods throughout Bellevue. The first of what organizers hoped are many meetings will be at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 14 at City Hall. Allison DeAngelis: 425453-4290; adeangelis@bellevuereporter. com

Scarce inventory, new rules for mortgage closings and affordability concerns will likely slow home sales around Western Washington during the remaining months of 2015 and into early 2016, according to spokespersons from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. The latest statistics from the MLS show a double-digit drop in inventory, a doubledigit jump in closed sales, and a near double-digit increase in prices from a year ago, prompting one industry leader to say the trends aren’t sustainable. “We simply can’t sustain double-digit increases in sales when inventory levels continue to drop every month,” remarked OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate. “We’re on the cusp of a housing market slowdown,” he predicts. Despite an expected slowdown, closed sales through the first nine months of this year are running 16.6 percent ahead of the same period a year ago, with median prices up 9.2 percent. Single family home prices across the 23 counties in the MLS report rose nearly 7.6 percent from a year ago, from $297,500 to $320,000. Single family homes in King County commanded the highest median price at $490,250, up 6.6 percent from the year-ago figure of $460,000, but down from June’s high of $500,000. In Bellevue west of I-405, closed sales for single-family homes in September 2015 were up 33.3 percent over the same month a year ago. The median sales price last month was $2,092,495, up 35.22 percent from a median sales price of $1,547,500 a year ago. In Bellevue east of I-405, closed sales for single-family homes in September 2015 were up 2.94 percent over the same month a year ago. The median sales price last month was $668,500, up 6.79 percent from a median sales price of $626,000 a year ago. The MLS report for September shows pending sales continue to outnumber new listings, resulting in inventory declines in most of the 23 counties in its service area. That imbalance leads to rising prices.

In west Bellevue, there were 38 listings in September 2015 and 40 closed sales. In east Bellevue, there were 63 listings in September 2015 and 68 closed sales. Northwest MLS members reported 9,574 pending sales (mutually accepted offers) in September for a 7.9 percent increase from the year-ago figure of 8,875. Compared to August, pending sales fell 9.7 percent. In west Bellevue, there were 47 pending sales in September 2015, up from 45 during the same month the year before. There were 43 pending sales in August 2015. In east Bellevue, there were 79 pending sales in September 2015, the same as in September 2014. There were 94 pending sales in August 2015. The condo market remained hot in the 23-county report with both sales and prices up by double digits. Members reported 1,183 closed sales during September for a gain of nearly 30 percent from a year ago. Prices on last month’s sales jumped 13 percent, from $230,000 to $260,000. “We’re coming off one of the hottest summer housing markets on record, and the second-best September on record for sales activity in the four-county area,” said J. Lennox Scott, chairman and CEO of John L. Scott. He attributes part of the surge to an interest rates drop in May, and the anticipation of rates increasing in the near future. In west Bellevue, there were 28 closed sales in September 12015, up from 23 during the same month a year ago. In east Bellevue, there were 32 closed sales in September 2015, up from 23 during the same month a year ago. The median sales price for a condo in west Bellevue was $654,000, up 39.15 percent from the median price of $470,000 the same month a year ago. In east Bellevue, the median sales price for a condo was $317,500 in September 2015, up 23.06 percent from the median price of $258,000 the same month a year ago.

Ask the expert

Q What is a jumbo mortgage loan? A Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are large agencies that purchase the bulk of U.S. residential mortgages from financial institutions to allow them to free up cash to make more loans. They have limits on the maximum value of any individual loan they will purchase from a lender. A loan that meets their standards is known as a conventional conforming loan. Currently in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties, this limit is set at $517,500 for one-unit properties. With the current home prices in the Puget Sound area, it is not uncommon for a borrower to need a loan greater than these amounts. If this is the case, your loan would be considered a jumbo loan.

Aaron Howell

Q Is it more expensive? A As the risk to the lender is greater on jumbo loans, the interest rates and fees are typically higher than on conforming loans so it is important for you to shop around. Make sure that in addition to the interest rate, you consider all of the estimated costs. Every loan is different, so call me about your individual situation. – Aaron Howell, BECU Mortgage Advisor, 206-805-2558 1423954

Students to get new tools through district, KCLS collab. BY ALLISON DEANGELIS BELLEVUE REPORTER

Bellevue School District students will soon have increased access to King County Library System resources through a new partnership through that will give students special library accounts and access to library materials that they are currently lacking. “We’re truly looking forward to this ongoing collaboration between the King County Library System and the Bellevue School District as both organizations are committed to providing resources and services that help our students succeed,” the school district said in a press release. On Oct. 12, KCLS will launch the system to each student in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Students will be able to use the array of databases, downloadable materials and online homework help services offered by KCLS without needing a physical card. Since students will only be able to access electronic materials it won’t be necessary for students to track due dates, so students will not accrue fines or fees, according to KCLS Project Manager Jennifer Wiseman. “If they already have a traditional library card, this is just an additional resource,”

said Wiseman. “We’re hoping this will really break the access barrier.” The account numbers will include each student’s school identification number and the school district number (405), making it easier for students to remember. The program was created by Research Technology Specialist Aron Early to supplement the district’s library resources and make it easier for teachers to use outside resources. The Bellevue School District, like many others in the area, has eliminated many of its librarians over the years. Early and Wiseman began working on the partnership a year ago. Over the last four months, they have tackled challenges around access. Two communities in Bellevue – Hunts Point and Yarrow Point – aren’t considered within KCLS’s borders, so those students currently do not have access to any KCLS resources, but will through this partnership. Parents throughout the district also had to opt their students into the program to participate. At this point, 1,200 students have yet to be approved by their parents to use the system, but KCLS will be providing “classroom cards” for teachers to use library resources in the classroom, regardless of each student’s approval status. Though the program has yet to launch, KCLS hopes to expand it to other districts, and has been approached by some, according to Wiseman. More information can be found at www.

I-90 weekend detours resume across Lk. Wash.


Crews to upgrade systems in Mount Baker tunnel, MI lid to set stage for light rail Weekend-long directional closures of the Interstate 90 outer roadways resume starting this weekend. Four more weekend-long directional closures are scheduled to be completed before the end of 2015. The closures will allow contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation and Sound Transit to continue upgrading the operations systems inside the Mount Baker tunnel and Mercer Island lid. The work also sets the stage for light rail service across I-90. During the weekend-long closure, all westbound traffic between Bellevue Way and Rainier Avenue South will be reduced to one lane and detoured into the I-90 express lanes. The majority of the work takes place inside the tunnels and out of the view of drivers. However, there will be a few noticeable changes made following the previous westbound I-90 detours this spring, including two lanes exiting the express lanes in Seattle to help keep traffic moving through the work zone. Mercer Island drivers will continue to exit at East Mercer Way, but will now have the option to use East Mercer Way or Island Crest Way to reach the island.

CLOSURE DETAILS Fri., Oct. 9 -Mon., Oct. 12 Contractor crews will shift all westbound I-90 traffic between Bellevue Way and Rainier Avenue South to the express lanes from 11 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday. Drivers wishing to access Mercer Island will need to exit westbound I-90 at East Mercer Way. There are no westbound exits to Mercer Island from the express lanes. Those traveling from Mercer Island to Seattle should enter the express lanes at 77th Avenue Southeast or Island Crest Way. Westbound I-90 drivers will be unable to exit to Rainier Avenue South and should follow the signed detour using Fourth Avenue South and eastbound I-90. The I-90 Trail will not be impacted during the closure.

What’s next There are 24 more weekend directional closures of I-90 planned between now and mid-2017. These closures are part of the I-90 TwoWay Transit and HOV Operations project. In mid-2017, Sound Transit contractors will begin work on the I-90 express lanes to operate exclusively for light rail as part of the East Link light rail project. The 14-mile East Link project, set to open in 2023, includes 10 new stations connecting Seattle, Mercer Island, Bellevue and Overlake.

Saints’ star setting the tone on the volleyball court BY SHAUN SCOTT BELLEVUE REPORTER

Directing traffic and getting players in the proper positions on the volleyball court is something that comes natural to Interlake Saints senior Courtney Johnson. Johnson, who anchors the Saints defense on the back line from her Libero position as a defensive specialist, has led the Saints to a 6-3 overall record thus far. The Saints have five senior starters on the roster and are poised to make a run at the Class 3A state tournament in Lacey this November. “I think this year we’re really working more as a team. We have a lot of veterans on this team,” Johnson said. “It is really nice to have that experience. The freshmen on the team fit in really well too. They play like veterans. We have a really good vibe as a team.” Interlake head coach Melissa Leibole said Johnson is the undisputed leader on the floor for the Saints. “Courtney is a dominant back-row player. When she is on, the team is on,” Leibole said. “We feed off her energy when she gets an amazing dig. It just brings up the entire team. She thrives off of her defense and she is always in the back row talking. She is just a big leader on the court.” Johnson admitted she wasn’t always the most positive vocal leader but that her attitude has changed immensely this season. “I think over the years I used to struggle a lot with keeping a good attitude. My teammates have really helped me to develop into a better leader and

a better teammate,” Johnson said. “I like to build a positive vibe around myself and my teammates.” The senior volleyball star said she’s played volleyball ever since she was 11 years old when she joined the Northwest Juniors Volleyball Club. “I have been surrounded by volleyball my whole life. I have always loved it,” Johnson said. “My parents met playing volleyball so they kind of got me into it. I like to play volleyball all year around. It just brings me so much joy.” Johnson said the Saints will take things one point, one match a time and will not get ahead of themselves despite the success they’ve experienced in the first half of the season. “We talked about goals at the beginning of the season and on our goal sheet is to make state. I have all the faith in the world in this team that we can do that,” she said. “We’re going to take little steps at a time and I think going to state is a possibility for sure.” Leibole concurred with Johnson’s sentiment. “I think we’re a little more experienced. We only lost three seniors from last year and two of them were starters. Going into this season we definitely said we wanted to be in the top three in KingCo (Conference). Right now we’re right about there. We’re hitting the halfway point of the season and teams are starting to get better,” Leibole said. “Obviously we want to get to the playoffs and make it to state if we can, but we got a lot of work to do to get there.” Shaun Scott: 425-453-5045;

Wolves defeat Knights Just one week after registering a convincing victory, the Newport Knights football squad found itself on the opposite end of the scoreboard, courtesy of a 55-9 loss to the Eastlake Wolves on Oct. 2 at Eastlake High School in Sammamish. The Wolves improved their overall record to 4-1 while Newport dropped to 2-3. The Knights surprised Eastlake by recovering an onside kick on the opening kickoff and bolted to a 3-0 lead when Hunter Hahnemann connected on 31 yard field goal with 7:02 left in the first quarter. “We got what we wanted,” Oliver said of the onside kick recovery and scoring on the first drive.

We’re going to keep at it and we are just going to keep working to get better,” Oliver said. The Knights will face the Issaquah Eagles in a Class 4A KingCo matchup at 7 p.m. tonight at Gary Moore Field in Issaquah. “It is not about them, it is about us. We got to clean up a lot of stuff and we got to take pride in our execution,” he said. Shaun Scott: 425-453-5045; sscott@bellevuereporter. com

[14] October 9, 2015 levue that have been or will be outfitted with upgraded traffic signals, approximately 120 have one or more traffic lights with a flashing yellow arrow. In total, there are 245 signals displaying flashing yellow arrows in the city. During the planning of the traffic signal swap-out, the city assessed intersections by speed, the volume of traffic and the sight distance before deciding to install flashing yellow arrows. After their installation, the city distributed materials, videos and other information about the blinking arrows, and posts signs for the first month after installation reminding drivers to yield next to oncoming traffic. Studies by the Federal Highway Administration suggest they increase safety because they are more effective at getting drivers to yield to oncoming traffic and are generally better understood by drivers than green unprotected left turn lights, according to the city. The signals are also a time-saver, resulting in drivers saving 166,000 hours each year on average. "Overall I like them because it eases the flow of traffic," said resident Mindy Law Westerman. Still, the city is considering a reeducation campaign, and may reinstall warning signs next to the lights. "We make it a point to listen to and respond to concerns," said Poch.


years has been positive, said Mark Poch, the city's traffic engineering manager, and despite the accident, the city is standing by the blinking signals. "This was a tragedy and it's very emotional for everyone when a twoyear-old is killed, so I totally understand why people are asking questions," said city spokesperson David Grant. "We're taking this extremely seriously, but I'm not aware of any discussions of rolling back the blinking yellow lights." The flashing yellow arrow at the intersection of 140th and Bel-Red Road was turned off on Oct. 2, three days after the fatal collision. Very few traffic signals have warranted being turned off in the past, Poch said. "Maybe for a lot of agencies, that would be the end of it," said Poch. "We continue to manage the flashing yellow lights, and if we have intersections that warrant it, we can turn them off on a case-by-case basis." Bellevue first began installing flashing yellow arrows in late 2010, and is nearing the completion of a project to install new traffic signals – including many using flashing yellow arrows – in intersections throughout the city. Of the 197 intersections in the Bel-


the Eastside, and the trend in the area is to start at 7:30 a.m. and let out at 2 p.m. Whether we admit it or not, those kids will pay,” said board member Christine Chew. Multiple times during the discussion, Chew stated that she didn’t feel the board had researched the implementation of a later start time, causing board member Steve McConnell to propose the alternative memorandum, giving schools the ability to weigh in on the feasibility.

Hats knitted for premature babies around 4 to 5 lbs by Edie Salerno are pictured on display at the Garden Club retirement community on Oct. 2. These and dozens of other hats were knitted by retirees and the KnitWits, a knitting group at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church. They will join the more than 3,000 donated purple hats distributed by Seattle Children’s Hospital next month to raise awareness for Shaken Baby Syndrome.

While implementation and the logistics remain up in the air, many board members said they believe that Bellevue’s move could be an impetus for change across the region. Having spoken to officials at Mercer Island and Issaquah school districts, McConnell said that they would likely follow Bellevue’s lead. “It’s the belief that Bellevue is in enough of a leadership role that if Bellevue changes, other districts will change,” he said. In the end, the health benefits won over the board members. Research into sleep schedules and school start times and a district survey pointed in favor of a later

ing that shifting the current bell schedules, start and end times are feasible and that the community supported it. Around 11,500 people responded to and approximately 3,000 people commented on the online survey. Around 60 percent of those surveyed opposed the existing 7:30 start time, while 71.3 percent and 74.3 percent supported a 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. start, respectively. “Ultimately, we could see that there was significant support for a later start time,” Deputy Superintendent of Instructional Leadership Eva Collins said in June.





start time. “We really do need to make the health of the students a very high priority,” said board member Carolyn Watson. “For my family, I’m voting against what will be best for us, but I feel I have to vote for what will be good for the majority.” The decision came after a year of consideration and debate. A steering committee formed last year to advise the Bellevue and Mercer Island school districts recommended in June that the school start time be pushed back between 30 minutes and an hour after find-

Officials warn of flood risk, despite El Niño winter Forecasts of an El Niño weather pattern may suggest a warmer, drier Puget Sound winter ahead, but King County leaders warn that our rivers remain serious flood risks, and urge everyone to prepare now for the possibility of severe flooding. “We need to remember that five winters ago we had record flooding and the evacuation of 44,000 people in Western Washington,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine, who today joined the King County Flood Control District in recognizing October as Flood Awareness Month. “We all hope for the best, but it is critical that your family be prepared, now, with an emergency kit at home.” King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn, Chair of the King County Flood Control District, noted that the county’s ongoing population growth could mean scores of new residents are living in floodprone areas and not even know it. “Since our last major widespread flooding event in 2009, King County’s population has grown from 1.916 million to 2.017 million people,” said Dunn. “That’s more than 100,000 people that may have never been impacted by flooding before that need to be prepared.” King County has experienced 12 flood disasters declared by the President since 1990. To prepare for a flood emergency,
