New editor wants to hear from you - Page 4 -

Friday, January 22, 2016

The city of Sammamish is warning its southbound commuters to watch out for continuing work on East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast. A press release from the Sammamish government, published Tuesday, noted that current maintenance



work and impending major roadwork by the neighboring city of Issaquah could crunch daytime commuters. Issaquah crews began utility work the week of Jan. 11, which will close the two-way left turn lane between Southeast 56th Street and Southeast 62nd Street. The lane allows cross-road turn traffic into area centers of commerce. The work is

expected to continue for several weeks. Work will take place 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays, impacting daytime travelers. East Lake Sammamish Parkway is Sammamish’s primary roadway to the north and south, with the southeast portion serving as Sammamishans’ direct route to Interstate 90. The release additionally

Special pullout section into its second century Boeing moves - Page 9-12 Staying -competitive a key focus for 2016

oeing wrapped up a strong performance in 2015 with a record number of airplanes produced and many other accomplishments. But its centennial year will be challenging with a major focus on being more competitive seen as key to the company’s long-term success. Thanks to a tremendous team effort, in 2015 Boeing produced a record 762 commercial airplanes. In 2014 the company delivered 723 airplanes – the previous year, 648. Climbing this hill was not easy, and the entire company takes pride in this achievement, which leads the industry. Other accomplishments in 2015 include building the first 737 MAX, achieving firm configuration of the new 777X airplane design and celebrating the first flight of the KC-46A Pegasus refueling tanker. Boeing also set a record for parts and services orders, expanded the 737 Seattle Delivery Center at Boeing Field and hosted China President Xi Jinping. It’s a different dynamic when it comes to new orders for airplanes. In 2015, Boeing booked 768 orders – a substantial number, but a 50-percent drop from 1,432 in the previous year. And Airbus recently reported they booked more than 1,000 orders – besting Boeing by nearly 25 percent.



1,036 768



In looking at the numbers, the important thing to note is that airline customers’ priorities have shifted. They are more focused than ever before on the prices they pay for airplanes. Price is what matters and Boeing must respond. “We build and support great airplanes – still the best in the world – but Airbus has improved its quality while

Issaquah’s drinking water earned a mention in a recent New York Times Magazine article, but the context has some residents worried. On Jan. 6, the magazine published “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare” on its website. The article was a profile of environmental attorney Robert Bilott and his lawsuit against the American chemical company over the dumping of Teflon component and known carcinogenic perfluorooctanioic acid — also known as PFOA — into a stream near a West Virginian farm and other public waterways.

maintaining lower pricing – presenting a tough choice for even our longest-standing customers,” said Ray Conner, Boeing vice chairman and president and CEO of Commercial Airplanes. Boeing believes the competition with Airbus will grow more aggressive this year – especially since timing and external forces could affect large airplane sales. To ensure its long-term position in the market, in 2016 Boeing is sharpening its focus on designing and building quality while accelerating efforts to reduce costs. “This is the first time in our history where we are competing in every single market segment,” Conner said. “It’s head-to-head competition with Airbus, and we’re also preparing for future competition from China, Brazil, Canada and other countries.” The good news is that Boeing announced production rates will climb again this year as the 767 program moves to build two airplanes per month and the 787 rate climbs to build 12 per month. Meanwhile, the 737 program will lay the groundwork for next year’s jump from 42 to 47 jets per month. In July, Boeing will celebrate 100 years of worldchanging innovation. It’s a reminder that together with our local communities, we do great things – each and every year.

Manuela and Daniel Paul immigrated to America in the mid- and late ‘80s, respectively. “Caring for others is like second nature,” Manuela Paul said. “We always care for our elders.” So expanding their adult family home to 13 rooms,

making it the city of Sammamish’s first and only assisted living facility, was natural. Family-to-Family Senior Care Inc., previously called Ideal Senior Care at Sammamish, is located at 25633 SE 30th St. in Sammamish. The Pauls and their

three children live in the 7,000-square-foot facility and bring the residents in as part of the family. “It’s just like a grandparent — there’s no difference,” Daniel Paul said. The couple’s Romanian roots brought them together in the late ‘80s, when they

met in a Bothell church. Though they lived in separate cities, the then 15-year-old Daniel Paul would bike from Redmond through Marymoor Park to Kirkland to see then 12-year-old Manuela. The Pauls have been married for nearly 20 years. Both from large families — Manuela, one of eight, SEE LIVING, 3

and Daniel, one of 12 — they are accustomed to living with many people. “I actually grew up in a six-bedroom facility,” she said. Manuela Pauls’s mother, a certified nursing assistant who first opened an adult family home in Bellevue in 1987, currently operates a facility down the road from the couple’s 13-bedroom facility. Her sister operates two homes in Issaquah and her brother owns one in Bellevue. Likewise, Daniel Pauls’s parents currently operate a home in Kenmore and


his sister runs another in Bellevue. The Pauls opened their first adult family facility in Bellevue, which was in operation from 1999 to 2005. They then moved to Sammamish, acquiring property off of Southeast 30th Street, demolishing the original home to replace it with a custom-built facility, complete with wide hallways and door frames. The spacious facility offers private rooms, between 165-170 square feet, each with a closet, restroom and individual temperature control. It boasts two large living rooms, two main showers and a large communal kitchen where everyone can eat together.

The Pauls have medications delivered to the home, and the same, small staff work in the facility (including Manuela Paul, who graduated as a registered nurse in 2003), which she says creates a “homey” atmosphere for the residents and a sense of “relief ” for their families. “You see the same staff everyday; you see me everyday,” Manuela Paul said. “I’m here all day.” As well as bringing a “high-end level of care,” the Pauls host in-home activities, such as weekly music therapy sessions or bringing in a hair dresser. “We just love to enrich their lives,” Manuela Paul said. “I love making their life better, making them laugh.” The Pauls provide transportation to doctor’s appointments or for running errands, such as going for a coffee. “It is fun here,” said resident Lois Cruickshank, who admittedly loves her lattes. Cruickshank, 90, says she had been living in a larger facility but was “kicked out” because they “got tired of me fallin’.”

Manuela Paul asks resident Florence Schock, 95, how she liked music therapy, a weekly event at Family-to-Family Senior Care. Schock likes to dance along to the live music.

Manuela Paul says this is not uncommon for larger facilities, where patients may not be getting the kind of attention they need. Next month, Cruickshank will have been living with the Pauls for three years. Most of the residents are

in their 90s, and several have been living there for several years, usually with their families nearby. The price point for the Pauls’s all-inclusive service is based on the assessed level of care needed for the individual resident. At a set price per month — which

includes room and board, housekeeping, laundry and medical care — there are four levels of care, the last being hospice care. For more information of Family-to-Family Senior Care, visit or call 425-644-7321.

What’s important to you?


very community has gems. Editor’s Note So far, in my new position as editor of the Issaquah-Sammamish Reporter, I’ve discovered a couple in these communities. For example, who knew kokanee salmon were native to the Lake Sammamish watershed? I was amazed last week when I read the CARRIE Reporter’s story about how the rare RODRIGUEZ salmon are faring in their swim back to their spawning grounds in Sammamish. And Poo Poo Point’s sweeping view across Issaquah and Lake Sammamish? How breathtaking. While I admittedly am not an expert about all things Issaquah and Sammamish, I am adept at engaging with new communities. I enjoy learning new areas, meeting new people and — most of all — learning your stories and what’s important to you. I have been in the reporting industry for over 11 years, previously serving as editor of the Federal Way Mirror from 2013 and as regional editor of the Kirkland and Bothell-Kenmore Reporter newspapers for nearly six years. I also developed my writing chops as a journalist for the Bellevue Reporter. An upstate New York transplant, I have lived in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and four children for over 20 years. I look forward to bringing a fresh perspective to local issues and will strive to make this newspaper even more relevant to the community. To do so, I need to hear from you regarding what issues are important to you and how the Reporter can do a better job covering those issues. In the coming weeks, I look forward to getting out in the community and meeting you. I welcome your feedback about this newspaper and, as always, I encourage you to contact me with story ideas and continue to sound off on issues that are important to you.

To the editor Olympia is not the place for Hicks One must always wonder when some candidates write their stories and make claims about their opponent. First they must check their own front door prior to making any statement. To spread political correctness is one thing — dealing with reality is another. The situation with the Muslim refugees is a very serious problem. Rep. Jay Rodne has the correct approach dealing with the Muslim situation: not to invite them to come here. Frau Merkel in Germany betrayed her nation rolling out the red carpet for the potential criminals to flood Europe. Is Essie Hicks trying to copy her? Germany, Belgium, Holland, Norway, Sweden, etc. are in chaos having to deal with rape, robbery, assault, etc. and the police do nothing. Germany was always a safe nation, not anymore. I visited Germany in September 2015 when those people came by the thousands every day. Ms. Hicks must have never studied European history when the Muslims did try to conquer Europe a number of times. We do not need Sharia law either.

How can former Mayor Ava Frisinger praise the great work Ms. Hicks has done looking after the road maintenance, when you see the sidewalks along the East Lake Sammamish Parkway neglected for years. Raising taxes and forcing retired people on limited income out of their homes is another issue, all under the banner of fully funding schools. Olympia is not the place for Ms. Hicks. H.W.

Where’s the funding for Sammamish seniors? I could hardly believe my eyes. There it was, above the fold on the first page “Council OKs funding for Senior Center.” Maybe my pleading with those office seekers on the corner of 228th and Inglwewood Hill Road paid off (so to speak). After all, they were elected. Wait a minute, the article refers to the Issaquah Senior Center, not Sammamish. Well, I guess I’ll just keep meeting my fellow 70 and 80 year olds at Mcdonalds.

Eat More. Weigh Less. The title sounds counterintuitive but I assure you it’s not. Weight loss, as we are conventionally told, comes down to eating fewer calories. It appears that we’ve been had all along. What causes the process of getting fat is dependent on the type of food that we eat. The 1970s diet of low fat combined with processed carbs raised insulin levels and allows your fat cells to hoard too many calories. Once fat cells are in this “calorie-storage” state our brain senses the crisis and responds by making us hungry, thus, slowing down your metabolism. According to a Tufts University nutrition expert, DR. BRIAN TIU “eating less helps us lose weight in the short term, but it becomes a struggle of diminishing returns as the brain redoubles its efforts to correct the imbalance.” Bottom Line: If you are inactive, you only need to worry about providing carbs to fuel your brain and nervous system. In other words, if you don’t exercise your carbohydrate needs are much less compared to someone who does. Lastly, don’t fall into the trap assuming that all carbs are bad for you. Quality trumps quantity. Enjoy your carbs and have a great day!

Actually, in the last 12 presidential election years, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has been up nine times and down just three. But instead of counting on historical trends to boost your investment success, focus on what you can control.

Or, on the other hand, are you playing it too safe, holding too FINANCIAL ADVISOR many investments that, despite their relatively low risk, are not providing you with the growth potential you need? In either case, you might have to adjust your portfolio to help keep you on track toward your long-term goals, such as a secure retirement.

My teenaged daughter/ son loves tea and we’re not even a tea household I’m not surprised—I hear this almost every day. My tea studio is in a building where lots of young people and parents come in for music lessons and many times the kids will want to come in to look at teas. Tea is intriguing and its popularity is growing. Your child’s interest in tea is a great opportunity for exploring something that often acts as a very effective conversation starter. When nothing else will get young people to talk, making a pot of tea to share or taking a trip to the tea store together can work miracles.

Legislation seeks changes to I-405 toll lanes BY LAVENDRICK SMITH WNPA OLYMPIA BUREAU

Lawmakers say they intend to find immediate solutions to motorists’ frustration and anger over the Interstate 405 express toll lanes, which opened in September. Senate Bill 6152 would authorize the Washington State Department of Transportation to operate only one express toll lane in each direction on I-405. Currently, the agency operates two express toll lanes from Bellevue to Bothell in both directions, in addition to a single express toll lane running in both directions from Bothell to Lynnwood. I-405 extends from I-5 at Tukwila to the south along the east side of Lake Washington, reconnecting to I-5 just north of Lynnwood. Bill sponsor Sen. Andy Hill, R-

Redmond, and Rep. Mark Harmsworth, R-Mill Creek, who has a companion bill in the House, said Jan. 14 thousands of constituents in their districts have complained of traffic congestion and high toll rates since the express toll lanes opened. Harmsworth said congestion increased on I-405 when just three non-toll, general purpose lanes were left open. He called the legislation a first step toward mitigating the effects of the new lanes. “It’s a moderate approach,” he said at a hearing on the bill, held in the Senate Transportation Committee Jan. 14. “It doesn’t do away with the tolls. It takes just a little step back to give us some relief so that we can start looking at this problem.” David Hablewitz, with Stop-

405Tolls — an organization with support from 28,000 people who oppose the express toll lanes — said he’d like to see a bill that removes the tolls completely, calling the toll program an improper way to collect revenue. “Charging a fee to drive on a road does nothing to increase its capacity,” Hablewitz said. Not everyone is against the express lanes. Duncan Milloy, a Mill Creek resident, travels I-405 frequently in the HOV lanes, and said he’s willing to pay the toll if it means he can get to his destinations on time. “During rush hour, trips that used to take me well over an hour can now be done in about 35 minutes,” Milloy said at the hearing. “Paying a modest toll, usually 75 cents, is well worth it to reduce my


The Issaquah City Council signed off on its input to Sound Transit’s ST3 public transit plan on Tuesday. The plan, currently being crafted by the Sound Transit board to meet a mid-summer deadline, would present voters with the choice to expand regional light rail and rapid bus transit by a factor of two once current projects are complete in 2023. The council voted unanimously to throw Issaquah’s support behind two letters, one

city-written and another regional, weighing in on ST3. In their own letter to the Transit board, Issaquah lawmakers asked that construction of a proposed light rail line from Totem Lake to Issaquah via Bellevue be done in consistency with the Central Issaquah Plan for the city’s valley core. Lawmakers also wrote that they wanted a 1,000-stall parking structure and a park and ride in neighboring Sammamish, as well as enhanced Sound Transit Express.

time on the road.” At some travel times, commuters are paying well over 75 cents and have complained about paying as much as $10 to drive in the lanes — the maximum toll rate. Hill said commuters have also complained about WSDOT’s response to calls. “We’re talking about 25-minute wait times on the phone,” he said. Patty Rubstello, WSDOT assistant secretary for tolling, said the toll lanes have had beneficial effects. She said the department has seen more than one million trips each month in the toll lanes, and that people are taking advantage of the lanes for quicker commutes. Rubstello said the department is listening and has plans to address issues. She said the agency has identified places where access lanes

Councilmember Paul Winterstein questioned the pairing of Totem Lake and Issaquah via light rail, calling the connection “not natural.” Mayor Fred Butler, a member of the Sound Transit board, acknowledged that it seemed strange, but that the route had been determined from an extensive corridor study under current public transit program ST2. “How that is actually built out, perhaps, is another question,” Butler said. “They could be built as separate segments. So the important thing in my mind is that it is light rail from Issaquah to Eastlake.” A second, joint letter of the cities of Bellevue, Bothell, Issaquah, Kirkland, Redmond

need to be expanded and that the department will modify two of those access points this week to help relieve traffic. The department currently has two years to see how the lanes work, and they must be removed if they don’t meet certain standards during that two-year period. Traffic in the toll lanes must maintain speeds of 45 miles per hour 90 percent of the time during their peak use, and they must generate enough revenue to pay for all costs related to operating the lanes. If passed by the Legislature, the bill would go into effect immediately, though Rubstello said it’d take about 18 months to successfully remove the lanes. “I can’t wait two years with a failed experiment to see if this is going to work or not,” Harmsworth said. LaVendrick Smith:

and Renton urged completion of the light rail East Link spine to Redmond, full implementation of routes and features for rapid bus riders on the Interstate 405 corridor, light rail from Totem Lake to Issaquah and rapid bus transit connections to the light rail North Link to Everett. The letter also requested the Transit board cancel proposed HOV access ramps in Renton at Northeast Eighth Street in favor of a new transit center and parking garage. After the Transit board receives input on the letters, it will hold public comment on proposed projects, Butler said. Daniel Nash: 425-654-0383;

Boeing in Puget Sound

Boeing moves into its second century


Staying competitive a key focus for 2016

oeing wrapped up a strong performance in 2015 with a record number of airplanes produced and many other accomplishments. But its centennial year will be challenging with a major focus on being more competitive seen as key to the company’s long-term success. Thanks to a tremendous team effort, in 2015 Boeing produced a record 762 commercial airplanes. In 2014 the company delivered 723 airplanes – the previous year, 648. Climbing this hill was not easy, and the entire company takes pride in this achievement, which leads the industry. Other accomplishments in 2015 include building the first 737 MAX, achieving firm configuration of the new 777X airplane design and celebrating the first flight of the KC-46A Pegasus refueling tanker. Boeing also set a record for parts and services orders, expanded the 737 Seattle Delivery Center at Boeing Field and hosted China President Xi Jinping. It’s a different dynamic when it comes to new orders for airplanes. In 2015, Boeing booked 768 orders – a substantial number, but a 50-percent drop from 1,432 in the previous year. And Airbus recently reported they booked more than 1,000 orders – besting Boeing by nearly 25 percent.


1,036 768



In looking at the numbers, the important thing to note is that airline customers’ priorities have shifted. They are more focused than ever before on the prices they pay for airplanes. Price is what matters and Boeing must respond. “We build and support great airplanes – still the best in the world – but Airbus has improved its quality while

maintaining lower pricing – presenting a tough choice for even our longest-standing customers,” said Ray Conner, Boeing vice chairman and president and CEO of Commercial Airplanes. Boeing believes the competition with Airbus will grow more aggressive this year – especially since timing and external forces could affect large airplane sales. To ensure its long-term position in the market, in 2016 Boeing is sharpening its focus on designing and building quality while accelerating efforts to reduce costs. “This is the first time in our history where we are competing in every single market segment,” Conner said. “It’s head-to-head competition with Airbus, and we’re also preparing for future competition from China, Brazil, Canada and other countries.” The good news is that Boeing announced production rates will climb again this year as the 767 program moves to build two airplanes per month and the 787 rate climbs to build 12 per month. Meanwhile, the 737 program will lay the groundwork for next year’s jump from 42 to 47 jets per month. In July, Boeing will celebrate 100 years of worldchanging innovation. It’s a reminder that together with our local communities, we do great things – each and every year.

Boeing and engineering union reach tentative agreement on contract extension


oeing and the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace (SPEEA), representing more than 20,000 employees, recently announced a tentative agreement on a new six-year contract extension, following several weeks of discussions. “This tentative agreement recognizes the significant contributions of our engineering and technical workforce and reinforces Boeing’s commitment to the Puget Sound region,” said Boeing Vice Chairman and Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner.

Highlights of the tentative agreement include: n Market leading compensation n Expanded workforce stability protections relative to Puget Sound engineering work movement n A transition benefit to a new retirement program n Modest increases in employee contributions for market-leading health care “These negotiations were possible because SPEEA and Boeing decided not to let our areas of disagreement prevent us from making progress on items where we do agree,” said Ray Goforth, SPEEA executive director in a news statement. “These contract extensions are the result of a lot of hard work and good will. Hopefully, this gives us a template for the future.” For additional information, visit

Linking up for the long game: Boeing, Callaway fulfill need for speed Golf company calls on aerospace engineers to help design faster club


hen engineers from Boeing and the Callaway Golf Co. got together for a cross-industry collaboration last year, the knowledge and experience applied to airplanes on the runway resulted in a golf club that can drive a ball farther down a fairway. An innovation by Boeing engineers to modify air flow around the club contributed to what they have validated through testing as a faster driver — Callaway’s XR 16. The project began last year when Callaway sought the expertise of the world’s leading aerospace company. “We’ve made a lot of strides over the years to improve aerodynamic efficiency in our products, but we decided it might be a good idea to call on the experts at Boeing and ask, ‘could your expertise help us design a faster club?’” said Alan Hocknell, senior vice president of research and development at Callaway. That simple question led to a special assignment for a small team of engineers led by Wayne Tygert, chief project engineer of 787 Airplane Development, and Jeffrey Crouch, Boeing Senior Technical Fellow, Aero Flow Physics, who saw it as an opportunity to learn from experts in other industries. “Reducing drag, controlling air flow and improving aerodynamic performance is a critical part of airplane de-

sign and something we take a lot of pride in doing extremely well,” Crouch said. “I was very curious to see how we could translate our experience to golf club design.”

Newer team members like Adam Clark, an aerodynamics engineer in Flight Sciences, and Harrison Chau, a configuration design engineer in Airplane Configuration and Integration, gained valuable experience on shortflow product development and innovation cycles. Despite the collective knowledge of the Boeing and Callaway group, the project presented some unique challenges, the engineers said. For example, unlike airplanes, drivers move through space with rapid changes in orientation. Crouch, with Clark and Chau, determined that the best method to increase the speed of the driver was to use a local air-flow modifier, called the Speed Step, on top of the club head. The Speed Step essentially alters the flow of air around the driver head enough to improve its speed from the top of the swing through impact with a golf ball. The increased speed upon impact can lead to greater distance for the driven golf ball — something every golfer of any talent level seeks. “I love my job as an aerodynamicist at Boeing, but it’s always great to learn from engineers in other industries,” Clark said. “This was a great opportunity to push myself and grow my skills and experience.”

Seahawks linebacker pops the question


Seattle Seahawks linebacker KJ Wright pops the question in Boeing’s Everett facility.

eattle Seahawks linebacker KJ Wright (#50) can be forgiven if years from now he doesn’t remember everything he saw during a tour in late December of Boeing’s facility in Everett, Wash. That’s because his VIP tour of the Everett Flightline and factory ended with him on bended knee before his longtime girlfriend, Nathalie. As two Boeing employees, wearing bow ties with their coveralls, unfurled a banner saying, “Nathalie – will you marry me?” down the side of a 787, Wright popped the question before his shocked girlfriend and her family who were visiting for the holidays. Needless to say, the answer was yes! Wright devised the unique proposal plan because his nowfiancee’s father is an aviation enthusiast who he knew would enjoy a tour of Boeing’s Everett site. Wright was joined on the tour by another notable guest – teammate Jimmy Graham – a registered pilot.

Airplane 101: Teachers become students

A group of teachers from the Puget Sound area attended Airplane 101, hosted by Boeing as part of the company’s STEM outreach efforts.

As part of its STEM outreach efforts, Boeing gives teachers an interactive lesson about airplanes and aerodynamics they can take back to their classrooms


ecoming students for the day, a group of Puget Sound area teachers participated in interactive exercises illustrating basic aerodynamic principles such as lift, thrust, drag and weight that they could take back to their classrooms during a recent day-long Airplane 101 class in Everett, Wash. The program, hosted by Flight Services Marketing and the Museum of Flight, is one way Boeing aims to build students’ interest and skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). By bringing teachers in to experience airplanes up close and talk with experts, Boeing gives them a unique perspective on the principles of flight, which they can then share with their students. Larry Seto, product marketing manager of flight training for Flight Services, led the teachers through the interactive exercises. Later, the lessons came to life when the group toured the Commercial Airplanes factory and the 787 Dreamliner static test bed, where they saw how Boeing simulates stresses on the airframe.

“I now can offer my students realworld examples of careers in aviation,” one teacher wrote in an anonymous evaluation of the class. Another wrote, “I plan to use these teaching techniques and examples in my class.” The teachers indicated that touring the production line — and taking aerospace knowledge beyond books — was particularly important to them. “I like having personal experience to refer to when teaching,” one teacher wrote. As Boeing prepares to celebrate its centennial in 2016, preparing and inspiring future innovators is a key focus, and programs like this can help influence the education environment, according to Sherry Carbary, vice president of Boeing Flight Services. “Teachers play an incredible role in shaping our future workforce,” Carbary said “This was a great opportunity to give teachers the tools they need to incorporate basic aviation principles into their curriculum.”

Seahawks memorable season comes to an end


Instead of preparing for the NFC championship game, the Seattle Seahawks spent Monday cleaning out their lockers at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center. Sunday’s season-ending 31-24 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the NFC divisional playoffs meant the Seahawks fell short of their goal to play in a third consecutive Super Bowl. And Sunday’s game, in which Seattle fell behind 31-0 in the first half before storming back in the second half, served as a microcosm for the Seahawks’ season. Seattle’s 2-4 start to the season put the Seahawks into a hole they were unable to escape from, despite a roaring finish to the season. “Today is a pretty tough day, coming off the loss to Carolina, very disappointed about the outcome of the game and kind of the way it came down,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during his season-ending press conference. “Obviously disappointed about

the fact that they jumped out on us, and we were able to regain a shot at the game, but it was too late. “Talking about and comparing this game and the season is kind of fitting,” Carroll added. “We struggled early. … By the time we got righted, we had taken our lumps and we’d put ourselves in a very difficult setting because Arizona had started so fast. So we were trying to catch up the whole time. It was very much like [Sunday]. We were catching up the whole season.” Just like Sunday’s game, the Seahawks sputtered out of the gate this season. The bulk of that slow start can be attributed to a Super Bowl hangover, as the Seahawks had to banish the memories of a last-minute goal-line interception depriving them from becoming repeat Super Bowl champions. Carroll acknowledged Monday that the hangover had a bigger impact on the season than he let on previously. “I was trying not to bring it to light any more than I

had to, because I was working with it the whole time,” Carroll said. “This was no surprise. “We were actively working to clear our minds and to clear our focus and to get it right. It just took a while.” But after the slow start the Seahawks came to life. They finished the regular season 10-6, winning six of their final seven games and outscoring their opponents 224-98 in the process. Seattle survived historicallylow temperatures to beat the Minnesota Vikings 10-9 in the wild-card round. Therefore, even though Seattle didn’t get back to the Super Bowl, the Seahawks may have a better taste in their mouths at the conclusion of this season than they did at the end of last season. “I felt like for everything we’ve gone through this season, we had a lot of ups and downs,” Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “We had a lot of guys just trying to get over what happened in the prior Super Bowl. For us to get through that and pull

through that, and be in the position that we were this year, it definitely felt like it was good.” What could end up being Seattle’s biggest development from the 2015 season was the elevation of quarterback Russell Wilson’s game. Wilson, in his fourth season, achieved new heights as a passer, especially in the final seven games of the regular season. He set new franchise records for passing yards (4,024) and touchdown passes (34) in a season, and his passer rating of 110.1 not only led the league, but was the 14th best in NFL history. “It was definitely a journey,” Wilson said. “It’s a year that you battle and every year is going to be like that. I thought we had a great year, but not good enough. We had an opportunity to do something really special and we came just a little bit short. It’s a little bit disappointing, but at the same time you look forward to the next opportunity. You smile about that, there’s no way I can be upset because of

the adversity that we faced and the overcomers that we have on our football team, the challenges we were able to defeat.” The development of the passing game meant Seattle’s offense was no longer so reliant on the running game. “I couldn’t be more excited about it, really,” Carroll said about the improvement in Seattle’s passing game. “We made so much progress in such crucial areas to come back and be anywhere near that kind of efficiency in the red zone and third down, and the targeting of our receivers and the high level of accuracy we had there. “We can go down the field if we have to, we can throw the ball really quick and do all kinds of stuff,” Carroll added. “Russell showed all of the things that we would hope to see in really consistent fashion this year.” As for that running game, Marshawn Lynch, Seattle’s stalwart ball carrier the previous five seasons, had an injury-plagued campaign in which he

played just seven games and managed just 417 yards. Meanwhile, undrafted rookie Thomas Rawls announced himself as the heir apparent at running back, gaining 830 yards before being knocked out by a season-ending ankle injury. Defensively, the Seahawks remained the best in the business, allowing the fewest points in the league for the fourth consecutive season. But in the end the Seahawks, both on Sunday and in the season as a whole, couldn’t overcome their slow start. “[The players] kind of understood this season was one where we didn’t quite capture all the opportunities that were there,” Carroll said. “More than you might thing, everybody left here today with the thought of, ‘Let’s have a great offseason and let’s get this thing cranked up and let’s go,’” Carroll added. “They’re already thinking that way. They’re ready to turn the page and want to get going.”

Eagles grapplers remain undefeated on the mat BY SHAUN SCOTT ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER

For the fifth time during the 2015-16 wrestling season, the Issaquah Eagles were victorious in a dual match. The Eagles registered six pins in a 46-28 victory against the Newport Knights in a Class 4A KingCo wrestling match on Jan. 14 at Newport High School in Factoria. Issaquah improved its record to 5-0 with the win while Newport dropped to 1-3. Issaquah 113-pounder William Tickman clinched the victory pinning Newport’s Alton Ophus, giving the Eagles a 40-22 lead with just two matches remaining in the dual. Issaquah grapplers earning wins with pins included Gunnar Starren (138), Caleb Solusod (145), Kai Hapke (160), Chase Helegeson (170), Stevie Solusod (126) and Tickman (113). Eagles’ wrestlers winning via decisions were Dakota Kutz (132), Chance Gunter (182) and Dean Pearson (195). Issaquah head coach Kirk Hyatt said the Eagles goal of winning the Class 4A KingCo regular season wrestling title is still very much within reach. “We’ve always had pretty good teams. The kids are willing to work hard. We are always near the top (of our league),” Hyatt said. “Tonight was just another battle that we were in.” Hyatt said the outcome of the league title will likely be on the line in a double dual against Skyline and Eastlake on Jan. 28. The matches, which will take place at

6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. respectively at Redmond High School, will be a formidable test for the Eagles. Eastlake is currently undefeated in Class 4A KingCo dual matches. “That will be a great night,” he said. The Knights captured five wins against the Eagles in the matchup. Andrew Doyle (152), Logan Anderson (220), John Bernado (120) and Charlie Baumann (285) nabbed wins via pins against the Eagles. Newport 106-pound wrestler Joshua Lee won by decision. Baumann had the most impressive performance of the night, pinning Issaquah’s Mitchell Barnes in 47 seconds. Baumann, who spent the majority of the 2014-15 season stuck behind 2015 graduate Nolan Richardson, is thriving in the varsity lineup this season. “Charlie has really come into his own. He has got that aggressiveness that you can’t teach. He is fun to watch. He keeps it exciting,” Newport head coach Michael Chenowith said. Chenowith was glad to see his lineup show its moxie and determination against Issaquah. The Knights trailed the Eagles 34-6 early on but cut the lead to 34-22 with just three bouts left in the match. “Issaquah is probably the toughest team in the league. You kind of got to pick up your game when you’re going against them. They are tough. It was good to see our guys get up for this match,” Chenowith said. “We’ve only had a few duals and we’re starting to get into a rhythm.

From the first time I watched “Rocky IV” as a 5-year-old in the late 1980s, I was hooked on the famed “Rocky” series. I preceded to watch all four films countless times on what would now be considered an archaic four-head VCR in my parents living room in my hometown of Belfair during my elementary school years. Much to my delight, “Rocky V” was released in 1990 while I was in the third grade. I couldn’t wait to make the trip to Regal South Sound Cinemas in Port Orchard with my dad to see it. A mind-boggling 16 years later, the sixth installment of the series, “Rocky Balboa,” appeared in theaters. My best friend Nolan Soete and I planned our entire weekend around it. After walking out of the theater in December 2006, we were thrilled with the movie and figured the “Rocky” series had officially come to a conclusion. We were wrong. The night before Thanksgiving, my friend DJ Jackson and I caught the seventh movie of the “Rocky” series, titled “Creed.” As I made my way to my seat I was excited but had no expectations. The film that unfolded blew me away. Without giving away too much of the plot, the movie focuses on Apollo Creed’s

son Adonis and his quest to become a champion boxer. Adonis, born after his father Apollo died at the hands of Russia’s Ivan Drago in “Rocky IV,” travels from Los Angeles to Philadelphia to pursue his dream. He quickly persuades Rocky to train him and his journey as an athlete develops from there. The movie includes all of the usual components of a “Rocky” film, including training scenes, bloody fight scenes, a love story and unbridled adversity. The centerpiece of the movie is the friendship cultivated between Adonis and Rocky. On the surface they have a typical trainer/boxer partnership. But as the film progresses it evolves to the relationship experienced between Rocky and his trainer Mickey Goldmill in the first three “Rocky” films. The thing I absolutely love about Creed is the undeniable fact that it is more than just a sports movie. It is a story about love, friendship, hard work, overcoming adversity, self actualization and pushing oneself to the limits in the face of a gaggle of challenges. You don’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy this flick. I wouldn’t be surprised if “Creed II” happens sometime in the next few years. “Creed” was that darn good!

Issaquah’s Hoehl named to Samford dean’s list

Nell Hoehl of Issaquah was named to the fall 2015 dean’s list at Samford University. To qualify for the dean’s list, a student must have earned a minimum 3.5 grade point average out of a possible 4.0 while attempting at least 12 credit hours of coursework. Samford University is Alabama’s topranked private university and one of the nation’s top Christian universities.

Students make Oregon State University honor roll

Oregon State University recently announced the students who made the scholastic honor roll for fall term. There were more than 1,000 students who earned a 4.0 grade point average and nearly another 4,000 who earned a 3.5 grade point average or better, including a few students from Issaquah and Sammamish. Emily Winterstein, of Issaquah, earned a 4.0 grade point average as a freshman majoring in biochemistry and biophysics. Lindsay Coutts, of Issaquah, earned a 3.5 grade point average as a junior majoring in university exploratory studies. Sarah Jacobi, of Issaquah, also earned a 3.5 grade point average as a senior in exercise and sport science. From Sammamish, Emma Fraley,


noted that The Environmental Working Group, in a release published in August 2015, had identified 94 water districts across the country that had found manufactured fluorochemicals in their water above a safe level of 0.001 parts per billion, as established by a 2015 recommendation from researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. Rich then identified four districts that had found particularly high concentrations of PFOA; Issaquah was the first district mentioned. The article was quickly

a sophomore in pre-mechanical engineering, earned a 4.0 grade point average. Caleb Clearman, a junior in digital communication arts; Chris Dallas, a senior in animal science; Avalon Dunbar, a senior in psychology; Bryce Escobar, a freshman in prebioengineering; Alexander Hawkinson, a sophomore in pre-mechanical engineering; Briana Klee, a freshman in psychology; Nadia Mccloskey, a freshman in nutrition; and Reilly McClung, a senior in forest engineering all earned a 3.5 grade point average or better. To qualify for honor roll, students must be enrolled for at least 12 hours of course work.

Sammamish’s Martel named to dean’s list

Rachael Martel of Sammamish was named to the dean’s list at Lehigh University in the fall 2015 semester. This status is granted to students who earned a scholastic average of 3.6 or better while carrying at least 12 hours of regularly graded courses. For 149 years, Lehigh University ( has combined outstanding academic and learning opportunities with leadership in fostering innovative research. The institution is among the nation’s most selective, highly ranked private research universities.

shared among Talus-based users of NextDoor, a localized social networking service. “I am concerned about the quality of our drinking water here in Issaquah,” Issaquah resident Lynne Gregg wrote the Reporter Monday. “… This chemical is proven to cause a variety of illnesses and cancers. What is the City [sic] doing to clean up our water?” On Jan. 14, city communications staff published a response to the Times Magazine article, asserting that Issaquah’s drinking water met Environmental Protection Agency standards. Meanwhile, the Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District — which partially serves Issaquah —

Students named to Eastern Washington dean’s list The following students from Sammamish were named to Eastern Washington University’s dean’s list for the fall 2015 quarter: Jennifer Bresley, Ryan de Coup-Crank, Miles Gaston, Sarah Gaston, Bryce Kennedy, Deven Kent-Dobias, Daniel Paris, Zachary Parker, Sarah Pellicano, Diana Rambow, Michael Riefflin, Sarah Saville, Connell Totten and Emily Vivian. In addition, the following students from Issaquah were named to the dean’s list: Mariko Berthet, Jozie Crisafulli, Matthew Darjany, Matthew Egaas, Tyler Gibson, Taylor Stone and Devan Talley.

Issaquah’s Riley named to York College dean’s list

Ryan Riley of Issaquah — a firstyear intelligence analysis major at York College of Pennsylvania — has been named to the dean’s list for the fall 2015 semester. To be eligible for this honor, a student must be registered for at least 12 academic credit hours and earn a semester GPA of 3.50 or higher. York College offers more than 50 baccalaureate majors in professional programs, the sciences and humanities to its 4,600 undergraduate students. The college also offers master’s programs in business, education and nursing and a doctorate in nursing practice.

rushed to assure customers that it was not the agency referred to by the Times Magazine article. “The New York Times article does not apply to the district’s water supply, nor to any of our customers that live in Issaquah,” General Manager Jay Krauss said. “We continually test at levels dramatically better than the federal limits that are cited in the article, and will maintain that as a matter of responsibility to our customers.” PFOA was only detected at one of Issaquah’s four wells — Well 4 in Gilman, according to city water quality reports — and was diluted by blending with the water from at least one other well by the time it reached the tap, an Is-

saquah spokesperson said. “It’s important to note that 2015 testing of our blended water found no detection of PFOA … and less than half the level of PFOS set by the EPA as a ‘provisional health advisory value,’” spokesperson Autumn Monahan said. PFOA was detected at a level of 0.0215 parts per billion at Well 4 in 2013, with readings of 0.0200 in 2014 and 0.0181 in 2015, according to city water quality reports. The EPA’s provisional health advisory standard for PFOA is 0.4 parts per billion. PFOA was not detected in a 2015 at-the-tap test of Issaquah’s water, while PFOS — perfluorooctane sulfonate — was detected at slightly more than half the

Open house on Southeast Fourth Street improvements

The city of Sammamish will seek input on planned improvements to a section of Southeast Fourth Street. The 3,300-foot roadway section in question, between 218th Avenue and 228th Avenue, is a key corridor inside the Town Center. An open house concerning the improvements is scheduled to take place 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28, at Pine Lake Middle School. Design concepts will be displayed and city staff and consultants will be present for questions and input. Currently a two-way road without sidewalks, Southeast Fourth Street will be expanded to include two travel lanes, a center turn lane or median, bike lanes, planter strips and sidewalks. The new design is intended to be pedestrian friendly and align with other Town Center goals, according to a city press release. The city will also coordinate with the Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District to install upgraded utilities as part of the improvement project. Pine Lake Middle School is located at 3200 228th Ave. SE, in Sammamish. For more information, contact Jim Grueber, senior project manager, at 425-295-0566 or

EPA provisional advisory level of 0.2 parts per billion. The state Department of Health conducted the 2015 water testing in conjunction with city public works in order to ensure the water met the EPA’s provisional health advisory values, Monahan said. Perfluorochemical water levels are not regulated by the federal government and the city of Issaquah conducts testing for them in participation with the EPA’s Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Program. The city has hired experts from HDR and Golder Associates to weigh in on

the city’s water system, Monahan said. But Gregg said the Times Magazine article provided just one more worry for Talus residents after water utilities were rerouted in the wake of November’s Parcel 9 landslide. “There’s been a lot of concern over water quality since the landslide,” she said. “Some neighbors are commenting on the cloudiness and taste of the water and believe the slide damaged some pipes.” Daniel Nash: 425-654-0383;

Eastside churches open their doors to host emergency shelters For many people, being out in the cold is just an inconvenience while getting from one point to another — both of which are usually indoors. But for some people, the cold is a reality of life as they have no way to escape it, no house to go home to at the end of the night. As host of the Eastside Emergency Winter Shelter (EWS) from mid-October through the end of December 2015, Redmond United Methodist Church (RUMC) provided a brief escape with a warm and dry place for people to stay as the temperature outside dropped.

Working together

Although EWS is operated by The Sophia Way — a nonprofit organization based in Bellevue whose mission is to help end homelessness for adult women in King County by providing shelter, life-skills

training, social services and supportive permanent housing — the organization subcontracted with Catholic Community Services of Western Washington to run the day-to-day operations of the shelter. “They’re basically doing it all,” said Angela Murray, executive director of The Sophia Way. “We just support them through financing.” Bill Hallerman with CCSWW said opening EWS at the church has been “an amazing commitment” by pastor Lara Bolger and her congregation in reaching out to homeless women and families in east King County. “Serving 50 women a night, the church has provided a wonderful and welcoming space for (those who) have no place to go in these cold months,” Hallerman said. “The women and families enter the shelter at 8:30 each night, receive a wonderful meal prepared by community volunteers and

cerned about our capacity limit to meet the demand.” A new addition to the EWS will address this concern. Now that the shelter has left RUMC, it has moved to Bellevue First Congregational Church. Murray said they will also open a second shelter so they will be able to split the populations with single adult women in one location and families in the other location. The second shelter will be at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, also in Bellevue. Together, Murray said they will be able to double the number of people they serve from about 50 to approximately 110. Despite having twice the capacity, she said they do not think they will have any extra room at either shelter. “We anticipate that the shelters will fill up,” she said, adding that the second shelter opened on Jan. 15. In addition, Murray said the Red Lion Hotel in Bellevue has donated four rooms to EWS, which can be used for women and families if the shelter reaches capacity. The hotel donated the rooms from December to when the second shelter location opened this month. Both shelters are open from 8:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Murray cited a lack of funding for why the shelters cannot be open more hours — although they were able to extend their hours on holidays. They also are not able to provide much in terms of services

related to housing, also due to a lack of funding. At EWS, Murray said, in addition to shelter for the night, clients can also have dinner.

have the opportunity to rest and refresh each night.” RUMC and Sophia Way have partnered together to provide shelter for homeless women since 2008. Janet Shelton, RUMC coordinator for the EWS since October 2008, said at the time, there was an immediate need for shelter during the winter season, but Sophia Way did not have the capacity to accommodate the homeless women. So RUMC offered their church as a “warm, safe and comfortable place for these women,” Shelton said. That first year, she said it took their church about three weeks to prepare and delegate to volunteer church members. “We started from scratch with our own ideas and direction, and developed a program, which would feed, bed, shower and offer a comfortable and safe environment for these women in need,” Shelton said. “When I look back, it was quite an efficient and successful program our church completed.” In addition to this shelter, the church has hosted Congregations for the Homeless men’s shelter for the past 22 years, which provides shelter for 30 days each year for about 35 men, she said. Murray said EWS serves single adult women as well as families. The latter is a new change from previous years as it used to be only women and children who were allowed at the shelter. This is the first time, fami-

lies — meaning fathers, whether they are with a partner or are a single parent — are also allowed to stay at the shelter. “Our congregation has been very supportive,” Shelton said about RUMC hosting the shelters. “Our mission is to ‘love, serve, grow,’ and we strive to live this by opening our doors to the homeless each year.” She said while EWS was at RUMC, church members volunteered to cook meals, provide blankets and clothing — providing help wherever help was needed. Shelton said it has provided an opportunity for people to open their hearts to each other and create community. Bolger added that the help extended beyond the church walls. “This year we saw an outpouring of generosity from the community of Redmond to support the needs of the shelter for which we are grateful,” she said. “Our friends who face homelessness need the support of the entire community and it is amazing what can be done when we work together.”

Growing need, growing concerns

Despite community members’ involvement, things are not perfect. “Our concern has been having the capacity to meet the needs of all the homeless families, women and children,” Shelton said. “Since the number of homeless people is growing each year, we were con-

Additional services and help

For those seeking additional services, she said Sophia Way’s day center in the basement of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church at 3030 Bellevue Way NE offers a place where women can shower, eat breakfast and/ or lunch and see various service providers such as a nurse or a dental van. In addition, the day center also offers limited case services. She said EWS, which opens every winter, typically runs from about midNovember through April. But this year, they were able to secure some additional funding that has allowed them to open in October and they are going to try to keep it open through mid May, Murray said. For those who would like to help EWS, Murray said they could use gift cards — as opposed to actual items — to places such as McDonald’s, Starbucks or anywhere clients can sit down and have a meal. Gift cards to grocery stores would also be appreciated. “They can’t take all of the supplies with them,” Murray said, pointing out that many clients would not have any means to transport and store larger items.
