Kenmore mom gets Narcan in Washington schools Corina Pfeil has spent the past three years to make Narcan accessible to students who overdose at school. By Madison Miller mmiller@soundpublishing.com

Melissa Crew nearly lost her daughter to a heroin overdose. It was almost four years ago. Her

daughter, Gia, began using heroin at the age of 17. “She came down from upstairs and said she wasn’t feeling good. She had stomach cramps and was moaning. I asked her, ‘Did you use today?’ and she said, ‘No, mom, I didn’t, I didn’t.’ And then I saw red and blue lines on her face,” Crew said. “I called 911 but I knew they couldn’t get there in time so I put her in the car and drove to meet them.” Once Crew — who was in

Woodinville at the time but now lives in Kirkland — met up with the paramedics, her daughter was dead. She was revived with Narcan. An opioid antagonist According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Naloxone, commonly known as Narcan or Evzio, is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist — meaning it binds to opioid receptors and can reverse and block

the effects of other opioids. The medication can be injected into the skin, but is most commonly used in its nasal spray form. It can very quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped as a result of overdosing with heroin or prescription opioids. There is a four-minute time period to address an opioid overdose. See NARCAN, Page 9

Kenmore looks at long-term affordable housing By Madeline Coats mcoats@soundpublishing.com

Kenmore City Council adopted Ordinance 19-0481 on April 15, making zoning changes to preserve Kenmore’s six existing manufactured housing communities (MHC). The city is considering future growth in the downtown area north of SR-522, which includes four existing MHCs. The Planning Commission and council are working toward developing Comprehensive Plan amendments that would arrange future rezoning for the MHC properties. “We have worked hard to proactively develop a plan that protects residents and respects property owner rights,” said Mayor David Baker. Projected growth within the communities will require increased density needs within the housing communities. The Planning Commission began discussion on May 7 about phased rezoning targeted for 10 years into the future. “Affordable housing is such a complex issue,” said Baker. “In See HOUSING, Page 9

Hundreds of attendees, supporters and protesters showed up to the Drag Queen Story Hour at Fairwood Library near Renton on June 27. Supporters formed human barriers and prevented protesters from blocking entrances.

By Aaron Kunkler akunkler@soundpublishing.com

A small library outside of Renton was turned into an ideological battlefield on June 27 as supporters

and protesters of a drag queen book reading descended on Fairwood Library near Renton. Dozens of protesters assembled to decry what they viewed as an inappropriate event marketed

toward children, while hundreds of supporters waved rainbow flags and formed human barriers to allow people to enter the library. The event was a Drag Queen Story Hour, the final of four which have

been hosted this month by King County libraries. Protesters and supporters arrived well before the event See QUEEN, Page 2

As families — including those with toddlers and young children — were leaving, some of the protesters held up signs with drag erotica on it and yelled “shame.” At points, signs with erotica — held by people protesting the drag queen story time — were inches away from young children and parents leaving the event. King County sheriff’s deputies were present, as was Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht. After the event, Thadayus gathered items and prepared to leave the building. “The event went really well — there was a lot of security,” Thadayus said. “Everyone was super excited and engaged.” Thadayus left out a back door of the library, escorted by multiple sheriff’s office deputies.

the King County Democrats, said the large turnout of both attendees and counter-protesters as supporters for the event was a positive sign. “What it says is that love is going to prevail, every time and everywhere,” she said. At one point during the event, a street preacher began preaching over a loud speaker and Carter and other supporters drowned out the speech with chants. Counter-chanting was common at the rally, as one side would begin, the other side would respond, each trying to out-yell the other. “I’m honestly not sure what I can say that’s more profound than all these people showing up for what’s a couple dozen Nazis,” said fellow member of the King County Democrats David Fleetwood. Myra Martino, a neighbor from the area, said others from her community are welcoming to people from all walks of life. “This is our neighborhood — people are gay or straight or whatever. They just don’t want you to be a jerk,” Martino said. The Drag Queen Story Hour was a flashpoint, and the fourth and final in a series that has been happening during June for Pride month. The events have garnered the attention of MassResistance and residents and what some attendees claimed to be Proud Boys showed up at a King County Library System meeting on June 26 in Issaquah. No police were present at the meeting and some attendees felt threatened by the Proud Boy presence. Julie Acteson, community relations director of the King County Library System, said that allowing free expression of every opinion is important to the library system. But, she added, the views expressed at Fairwood did not hold equal amounts of support. “We certainly respect the

right of anyone to come out and exercise their right to [freely express themselves]. At the Fairwood event last evening, overwhelmingly, the community turned out in favor of the story time,” Acteson said. “I think there was about 500 people there, and easily 400 were supporters of us holding the event.” Though the opposing views were contentious regarding the Drag Queen Story Hour, the library system will continue supporting diversity, Acteson said. “Libraries are about diversity and inclusion. Those are huge values for us, so we want to make sure that we’re offering programs and services meeting the needs of our communities, and not just a chosen few,” she said. “We certainly don’t want to ever be trying to censor what we’re doing — whether it’s in our programs or our selections.” Acteson could not say if the library system would hold the same series of events next year because the library system has not yet discussed program planning for 2020. “Sometimes it’s difficult to support intellectual freedom and standing against those who oppose it, but we’ll always work to celebrate diversity because it’s the right thing to do,” Acteson said. There was a silver lining to be seen in all of it, Acteson said. “It was quite touching to see the support from the community,” she said. “They created a human tunnel so the families and children could come through safely. There was a woman passing out headphones for the children so they wouldn’t have to hear the racket from all the protesters …. it was really touching to see how they rallied around everyone who wanted to enjoy the story time.” Corey Morris contributed to this story.

LYMPIA — Next month’s selection of a new speaker for the state House of Representatives may be the year’s most important contest for Democrats in Washington. Seattle Democrat Frank Chopp, one of the most dominant forces in Washington politics, has relinquished the seat of power in which he sat since the turn of the century. His tenure, unprecedented in length, ended in early May. And four women lawmakers are vying to succeed him — and become the first woman in this position in state history.

On July 14, the two plan to host a forum at which they hope all four candidates will be

States and many teen collisions happen in the summer months leading up to Labor Day weekend. Kenmore parents, if you have teens, please start shaping your teen into a safe and capable driver. Our officers love talking to our Kenmore youth, but we want it to be at fun summer events or National Night Out…not because they are engaged in risky driving, or worse, we are responding to a collision. Start the conversation early: Talk to your teens about safe driving early and often, before they reach driving age. But don’t stop there. Have conversations with the parents of your teens’ peers or friends and compare notes — both are key to your teens’ safety. I get it. I have teenagers myself. Sometimes these conversations are hard! Maybe your teen will “hear” tips better if they come from a trusted family friend or aunt or uncle. Set the standard: Talking is important, but

action is even better. Show your kids safe driving behavior. Start by modeling good habits any time you drive them anywhere, even before they begin to drive. Make sure you are turning off your cell phone and stowing it away and buckling your seat belt before starting your car. Get it in writing: When your teenagers begin driving, consider setting ground rules and outline the consequences for breaking them in a parentteen contract like the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s ParentTeen Driving Contract. Spell out the rules: No cell phones, passenger limits, no speeding, no alcohol, no driving when tired, and always buckle up. These rules could help save your teen’s life. Make technology work for you: Did you know there are several apps that let you know when your teen driver is speeding, or in a car that is speeding? Or, that will disable texting and social media while driving? It might

Flexibility of college classes designed for working adults By Leslie Shattuck Lake Washington Institute of Technology

When people think of traditional college-aged students, they think of students being anywhere between 18-21. That’s no longer the case. In fact, more working adults are attending college than ever before. In 2018, the National Center for Education Statistics reported that of the more than 19 million undergraduate students enrolled in college, many of them were over the age of 25. The same is true at Kirkland’s Lake Washington Institute

of Technology (LWTech) where the average student age is 31. Making the decision to go to college to start a degree, get a certificate or complete a degree can be daunting for working adults who are juggling their career and family obligations. At LWTech, one-third of students work while attending college. With that in mind, many college classes are offered during the day, in the evening, in-class and through a hybrid model, which combines in-class and online coursework to allow students more flexibility tobalance school, work

and family. “The flexibility at LWTech has been awesome for me because they have offered the courses that I need in multiple areas exactly when I need them. I have taken

day classes. I have taken night classes. All of them are available and viable options,” said LWTech engineering transfer student Taylour Mills. Going to college doesn’t

have to break the bank. According to the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges website, Washington state community and technical colleges “are the most affordable not-for-profit higher education solution in the state.” On top of it being more cost effective to go to a community or technical college, LWTech offers small class sizes, hands-on instruction, a variety of support services like tutoring and customized advising, and scholarships through the LWTech Foundation. With the flexibility of class

schedules to support eight applied bachelor’s degrees, 57 associate degrees, and more than 90 professional certificates in 48 areas of study, LWTech has degree and certificate programs that support working adults. “If there’s another parent out there that is nervous because they think it’s going be too hard to complete that goal with a child, I tell them that they just need to start. It is so worth it, and it will be worth it for their families,” Mills added. Learn more about the programs offered at LWTech online at www.LWTech. edu/YourFuture.

Lake Washington – Elevate Learning MISD earning its reputation Dr. Jane Stavem

By Donna Colosky

Superintendent Lake Washington School District

Lake Washington School District (LWSD) continues to work toward accomplishing our vision of “Every Student Future Ready.” The district’s graduation and college entrance rates are among the highest in the state. Our highly-qualified and committed teams of administrators, teachers and staff are dedicated to the success of all our students. Ongoing community support helps the district provide high-quality educational experiences for all students. With the successful passage of a bond measure in 2016, Timberline Middle School, a new middle school in Redmond Ridge, will open this fall. LWSD will also open a new and enlarged Peter Kirk Elementary in Kirkland, Wash., and Margaret Mead Elementary in Sammamish, Wash. this fall. The Old Redmond School House will open in fall 2020 as an early learning center. District enrollment continues to grow, and these schools help to reduce overcrowding. A

recently-passed capital projects levy will provide additions at five schools, adding space for more than 1,000 students. Future funding measures are needed to continue to provide quality learning environments. The district’s focus on community engagement and fiscal responsibility earned national recognition from the Association of School Business Officials International. The 2018-19 budget earned the Meritorious Budget Award, a national recognition for the development of a transparent, effective budget that aligns with high standards for budget presentation and commitment to the community. This was the second year in a row that LWSD has earned this distinction. A community

engagement process during the 2018-19 school year has led to the creation of a new strategic plan with a theme of Elevate Learning. Elevate Learning focuses on strategic initiatives that keep us climbing upward, helping us elevate the quality of everything we do as we provide the best education in the world for our students. As superintendent of Lake Washington School District, I am proud of the district’s success. Great communities make great schools. It is only through the support of parents, community members and city and business leaders that we can experience such success as a district and accomplish our mission and vision for students.

The Mercer Island School District has built a national reputation for excellence, combining academics, cultural expression and athletic achievement. We emphasize social-emotional learning that is responsive to educating the whole child. The district is consistently ranked among the best in the state and maintains a graduation rate of nearly 95 percent. Our graduates move on to the finest colleges and universities in the world. This year our Board of Directors has been working to update our core values, vision and mission. The intent of this work is to center our “why” around students as the priority and our goal of supporting the whole child. The District’s current “Vision 2020” was originally adopted into board policy 10 years ago and needs updating to better reflect the district’s goals and aspirations today. After a series of study

sessions, the board has drafted revised mission, vision and values statements for the district. They have been presented to a series of focus group meetings throughout the district, including to families, staff, students and community members. We will share with the School Board soon all the thoughts and reactions, and the board is expected to consider adopting the new core values, vision and mission for the 201920 school year. Our enrollment continues to grow in both population and diversity as new families move to Mercer Island. If you are a new family to the Island, please visit our web site at mercerislandschools.org/ newfamilies to enroll your students. Island voters have consistently approved ballot measures, including the four-year enrichment levy that provides vital funding for many programs, including special education, elementary school Spanish language, art, music, PE, a seven-period day at the high school and

advanced courses. We are proud of our continuing partnerships with the city of Mercer Island and Mercer Island Youth and Family Services, providing mental health counselors in our schools and a school resource officer serving the high school and other buildings as needed. Community support of our schools is unparalleled in the region. Mercer Island Schools Foundation, our PTAs and community boosters contributed over $2 million to our schools last year. We encourage our families to be involved and volunteer in our schools, and if anyone is interested in joining our team, please visit jobs.mercerislandschools.org for a current listing of employment opportunities. For more information about the district and its programs, please visit our website at mercerislandschools.org, find us on Facebook at @mercerislandschooldistrict, on Twitter @mercerislandsd and on Instagram @ mercer_island_school_ district.

EDUCATION - STATE OF THE UNION 2019 -

BSD – Inspiring Bellevue’s creators of the future By Ivan Duran Superintendent, Bellevue School District

As superintendent of the Bellevue School District, I have many opportunities to meet and speak directly with our learning community of students, parents and educators. This education section is an excellent opportunity for me to share information about the powerful work our school district is doing with the larger Bellevue community. The first year of our five-year strategic plan is now complete. Put simply, this plan is the district’s road map through 2023 to ensure that every student attending a Bellevue public school achieves excellence at a high level. To deliver effectively the plan’s model for national excellence to our students, we focus on three key words — affirm, inspire and thrive. The following is how we put each of these words into action: Affirm: Our commitment is that all Bellevue students — no matter their race, ability, language background, religion, national origin, immigration status or sexual orientation — will receive an exemplary education and achieve success in a way that honors their identity and affirms their individuality. Inspire: Inspiration has the power to propel potential and transform the way students perceive their own capabilities. In addition to cultivating talents and abilities, we strive to provide experiences that inspire students to seek new knowledge and embrace new opportunities.

Thrive: It takes all of us — staff, families and the community — working together to exceed expectations and earn our place as a national model of educational excellence that meets the needs of every student. Delivering on our vision of students becoming creators of their future world requires a learning community with a set of shared values and priorities. Two years ago, when the district started its journey to create an effective road map, we reached out to the community to learn more about what those shared values and priorities should be. More than 35 focus groups and 150 interviews were conducted with students, parents, teachers, school staff, building leaders, central office staff, district leaders and board directors. In addition, more than 4,600 community members responded to a survey soliciting community input. The information we received captured our strengths, challenges and opportunities for greater success. As a values-driven organization, the Bellevue School District strives to live its values every day. To that end, we identified six shared values that inform every interaction between and among our students, families, staff, and community: compassion, collaboration, excellence, integrity, respect and service. Once we identified our shared values, the Bellevue School District identified priority areas to focus our energy and effort, decision-making and service. For our district, the following six priorities are important for each and every student to achieve success each and every day:

High-quality instruction: We will provide engaging and culturally responsive instruction that addresses the academic, social, and emotional needs of individual students. Our commitment is that each student experiences continuous growth in all subject areas. Student well-being: We will affirm each student’s sense of identity so that each student feels physically, socially and emotionally safe in all our learning environments. Exceptional staff: We will recruit, support, and retain exceptional staff throughout our organization, and believe that a diverse and highly skilled staff is critical to the success and well-being of our students.

Issaquah Schools responding to community By Ron Thiele Superintendent of Issaquah School District

The 2018-2019 school year was an important and exciting one in the Issaquah School District. Changes to the state funding model, along with the passage of our Educational Programs and Operations Levy in February 2018, allowed the district to implement programs our community has been requesting. These include: ■ A new modified seven-period high school schedule ■ A new elementary Spanish dual language immersion program at Clark and Issaquah Valley elementary schools ■ More academic guidance counselors ■ More mental health counselors ■ A new director of safety and security position ■ New safety measures in schools ■ New professional learning coaches to support new hires to the district ■ New family partnership liaisons As our community evolves and changes demographically, we are reshaping our practices to best meet the needs of the students and families we serve. In spring of 2018 the Issaquah School Board of Directors adopted the district’s first equity policy, which sets a clear

expectation throughout the school system to provide all students the opportunities and support to reach their highest capability in a safe and welcoming environment. This policy requires us to identify and correct inequities, and we are committed to doing so. We have increased our efforts to recruit and support diverse staff members to serve our diverse student body. We are providing ongoing training to help all staff understand and meet the needs of students from all cultures. We are updating our curriculum to better explore and represent groups that have been traditionally overlooked or marginalized. We are also committed to narrowing the achievement/opportunity gap between our highest and lowest performing students. We pledge to question, grow and evolve in our understanding of diversity and what it means to be culturally competent. This past school year we completed several significant remodel and expansion projects, including Pine Lake Middle School, and Cougar Ridge and Sunset Elementary Schools. We have made significant progress on Endeavour and Discovery Elementary Schools and are in the planning phase for Maple Hills Elementary. We are excited

to be near completion of the property acquisition for a new high school and elementary school, planned on the former site of Providence Heights College. We also acquired land at the entrance to the Talus community for a sixth middle school, and property in Sammamish for a 16th elementary school, as planned in our 2016 school bond. We are looking forward to breaking ground on these new schools in the 2019-2020 school year. In the coming year we will continue implementing our new programs. The levy supporting these programs is set to expire in 2020, so we will need to ask voters to renew that levy to allow these programs to continue. Equity work will expand as we work to deliver more professional development for staff and work with community partners to address issues such as racism to create a more inclusive school system. All of this progress would not be possible without the support of our community. We work alongside the Volunteers for Issaquah Schools Committee, the Parent Teacher Student Association, the Issaquah Schools Foundation, and every resident, family, student and staff member to deliver a world-class education.

Bellevue College offers options for all students Choosing a college or program of study is a big step.

EDUCATION - STATE OF THE UNION 2019 -

Snoqualmie Valley School District offers high-quality public education Submitted by the Snoqualmie Valley School District Located in the scenic Cascade Mountain foothills, the Snoqualmie Valley School District encompasses more than 400 square miles and serves families in Snoqualmie, North Bend, Fall City and surrounding areas of unincorporated King County. The district offers high-quality public education to approximately 7,100 students in 11 schools. The district’s mission is to prepare all students for college, career and citizenship. Snoqualmie Valley schools offer rigorous academic curriculum, career education training, extensive technology resources and project-based learning to help students be prepared for any path they may choose to pursue after high school. Our district

works with many community partners to expose students to a variety of career experiences, to help them realize their potential, consider options for the future and learn about relevant training or continuing education required for different careers. SVSD also values and supports a broad range of extracurricular experiences for students, so they can explore their interests and discover their passions for life-long learning. Staff work to create a positive and safe learning environment, ensuring that all students feel respected, valued, capable, loved and that they belong to a caring and nurturing organization. In recent years, student achievement and the number of students choosing rigorous academic courses have trended upward. The Class of 2017

graduation rate was 93 percent district-wide (95 percent at Mount Si High School). Snoqualmie Valley has been recognized for AP honor roll distinctions by the College Board, and Mount Si High School has been named on national best high school lists by U.S. News & World Report and Newsweek. Mount Si’s jazz band has been selected among top high school bands in the nation, performing at the Essentially Ellington Festivals in New York five times, most recently in 2019. The district has an unwavering commitment to school improvement and views great teaching and collaboration as the key to educational excellence. Educators receive progressive professional development, instructional coaching support from peer mentors, and in-depth technology training. We work together

to engage and empower all learners – students and staff – to maximize their potential. Thanks to the community’s generous support of school bonds and levies, the district is expanding school facilities and improving programs to serve a growing student population. In recent years, the district opened a new elementary school (Timber Ridge Elementary) in 2016, and installed state-of-the-art security systems throughout Snoqualmie Valley schools. In the fall of 2019, more exciting changes are planned. The district will open a new, modernized and expanded Mount Si High School to serve Snoqualmie Valley students in grades 9-12. At the same time, Snoqualmie Middle School will be re-instated as the district’s third middle school, since a separate

freshman campus will no longer be needed. Also, starting the 2019-20 school year, Two Rivers School will become a Big Picture high school, adopting a new educational program that centers around studentdriven, real-world learning with competency-based instruction. Additionally, the district will begin implementing a One-to-one

Narcan From Page 1

“I know lots of stories of people who weren’t able to make it,” Crew said. “Those stories could have changed if Narcan could be in schools.”

‘I was shook inside’ Corina Pfeil, a Kenmore parent, has dedicated the past three years to do just that — get Narcan in schools. While on a new-student tour of Inglemoor High School in 2016, Pfeil said the principal at the time said a student had overdosed on heroin in one of the school’s gender neutral bathrooms the previous year. “I was shocked that heroin was here,” she said. Heroin is scary…I was shook inside.” According to the 2018 Healthy Youth Survey, seven percent of 10th and 12th graders reported misusing prescription drugs. Three percent reported having used heroin. “These percentages mean that in 2018, about 2,500 Washington State 12th graders had tried heroin at least once in their lifetime and

even more (about 3,500) use painkillers to get high in any given month,” according to the 2018 Healthy Youth Survey. “Everybody talks about the opioid crisis but they think it only applies to people who are homeless or criminals,” Crew said. Crew said she feels frustrated by the lack of knowledge there is around opioid use. “It can affect anyone. People look at me like I shouldn’t have a kid on heroin because we don’t fit their ideas of what an addict’s family looks like,” Crew said. “It shouldn’t even be a question — of course we should have Narcan in schools.” Crew said her family is blessed. “We got to have a happy ending. Just think, so many other moms could have that same happy ending,” she said. “It gives them a second chance at life. Narcan can keep these kids alive enough to get them help.”

Preparing schools Through this revelation, Pfeil was curious to learn how many students use opiates and if schools were prepared to address an overdose onsite.

GUTTER

S

Washington state does not specifically track opioid overdoses that occur at public schools, and the laws around Narcan in schools have been restricted until now. The company that produces Narcan, Adapt Pharma, has offered free doses of the opioid-reversal medication to high schools and colleges nationwide. However, for the past several years, the laws around Narcan use in Washington schools required written permission from a parent, as well as a doctor’s prescription, to give a student a dose. “The law stopped at nurses,” Pfeil said. “You know, some schools don’t even have full-time nurses.” Thus began Pfeil’s journey to create her citizen action grassroots bill, known as HB 1039. This bill was signed under Gov. Jay Inslee’s larger opioid treatment bill in May. HB 1039 concerns opioid overdose medication at K-12 schools and higher education institutions. The passing of the bill ensures high schools in districts with more than 2,000 students will be required to obtain and store Narcan. The bill will go into effect at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year.

From bill to fulfilled promise

Housing

Pfeil hit several roadblocks throughout her journey to have HB 1039 passed, one of which included having the bill time out. “I was almost in tears, I thought it was over,” she said. “There were so many minefields. I had to navigate around them and teach myself how to do everything.” Through the support of friends, families, the community and local leaders, she said she knew she had to keep going. To continue her motivation, Pfeil would revisit a childhood educational video. “I kept coming back to the ‘Schoolhouse Rock!’ video of ‘I’m Just a Bill,’” she said with a laugh. “It’s supposed to be something that everyone should be able to do. While the process is a bit harder than the song depicts, it is basically how a bill gets passed. If other people could do it, I knew I could do it.” Now that the bill is passed, Pfeil said she feels like she has fulfilled the promise she made three years ago. “I made a promise to follow this through and nothing was going to stop me,” she said.

that the Planning Commission consider future affordability levels based on countywide need. Statistics from 2015 indicate that only three percent of total housing units in Kenmore were affordable for very low-income residents, compared to 15 percent for those with moderate income. The redeveloped MHCs north of SR-522 could be effective for affordable housing options in the future. The current housing communities are all close to capacity, therefore expansion will likely need to occur 10 years from now. While the need for affordable housing is intended to rise, the city’s future capacity for employment will also need to grow. The next round of Comprehensive Plan reviews will have to consider new growth targets when deciding how and where to implement additional job opportunities. The four MHCs near the highway are next to areas planned for commercial and mixed-use development, the draft states. “We anticipate that there will be an even greater need for housing in this area, particularly with the arrival of Bus Rapid Transit,” said Anderson.

the Puget Sound area, we’ve seen how redevelopment of manufactured home communities can present real hardships for residents.” According to the draft Comprehensive Plan amendment, phased zoning is an implementation tool used to support the long-term vision for an area. It would automatically adjust future zoning based on anticipated changes in land use and housing needs. “For the two parks on the south side, the intent is that those retain the zoning indefinitely — forever,” said principal planner Lauri Anderson at the City Council meeting on May 7. As the city continues to expand, the need for housing and employment will increase. Kenmore has a significantly lower percentage of multi-family housing compared to most other Eastside communities, as referenced in the draft amendment.

BOTHELL-KENMORE REPORTER

Kauffman is running and jumping strong Inglemoor High athlete is training hard this summer. By Andy Nystrom anystrom@soundpublishing.com

Abby Kauffman’s feet continue to glide along the track and launch her body through the air. Although the prep track and field season ended about a month ago, Kauffman has kept maximum focus along her running and jumping journey, with her sights already set on notching a stellar senior campaign. “Staying active and working to better myself, too. It’s been good for me,” said the Inglemoor athlete, whose top events are the 100-meter run, long jump and 4x100-meter relay. Kauffman earned 4A KingCo championship victories this season in the 100 with a personal record of 12.57 and in the long jump with a 16-11. She took first in the 100 at districts in 12.99 and finished 10th at state in 13.04. The Viks’ 4x100 relay of Emily Reid, Erica Swift, Abby Monson and Kauffman took second at districts in 50.09 and unleashed a PR of 50.03 to take 13th at state.

This summer, she’s training with Seattle Prep coach Deino Scott along with Tami Baddeley and Kaisa Hall, who just finished their Inglemoor coaching careers at state. There’s twice-a-week workouts at Inglemoor and at Shoreline All-Comers meets. Mix in some select fastpitch softball with the Redhawks 18U squad, and shortstop Kauffman is set for the summer. She was a standout athlete in softball, volleyball and basketball at Inglemoor, but she’s now solely focused on track and field. She enjoys the individual and team balance of the sport and would like to advance that experience into the college realm. She’s watched her brother and recent Inglemoor graduate Sean thrive on the baseball field for the Vikings and turn his focus and drive to play college ball into a spot on the Pacific Lutheran University squad. Jumps coach Baddeley pointed Kauffman toward Scott, who provided invaluable help with the Viking sprinter’s form in the 100 and she gained confidence along the way and improved her times. Scott told Kauffman to take a deep breath in set position before the race that would produce her

100 PR. “That race felt different, I could hear myself release that breath, I could feel that it was gonna be a different race that time. It was a really nice day, too, good weather really helps with your muscles,” Kauffman said. “It’s definitely some adrenaline. And it’s really cool because my teammates are super supportive, too,” she added about her 100 success. She also enjoys getting to know her opponents and appreciate their successes as well. As for the long jump, Kauffman nailed a PR of 17-3.25 her sophomore year and she’d like to qualify for the state meet for the first time next spring. It all starts with those summer workouts and keeping a positive mindset the whole way. The Reporter asked Kauffman a series of questions to get a behindthe-scenes glimpse into her life: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? Sometimes with everything going on, it’s a good reminder to trust myself in the moment and that things will fall into place. What’s your favorite restaurant in the area? Snappy Dragon. What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Abby Kauffman blazes through the 100 at the 4A KingCo meet this season. She placed first with a personal record of 12.57.

The sound of Styrofoam on Styrofoam. It’s a weird thing, but I don’t like that sound. Maybe you’ll have someone else open the packages when you get them at home or whatever. What special skill would you like to learn? My dad’s a really good cook and hopefully that can be something that I can learn to get good at so I can use that in my future, too. Speaking of cooking, if you could go to dinner with one person, who would that be? Emma Watson. Besides from her acting career, she knows her values

and she’s influenced other people. I have a lot of respect for that. I think that’s pretty cool. What’s your favorite movie of all time? “Now You See Me,” there’s action, there’s mystery, that’s a good one. What superpower would you like to have? The ability to fly (laughs). That can be very useful. What you kind of do with the long jump. Maybe you can start the long jump, get in the air and just go off from there. Where’d she go? (laughter)

Kenmore residents seek parks and recreation facilities restoration By Madeline Coats mcoats@soundpublishing.com

The park, recreation and open space (PROS) plan will be updated in Kenmore for the first time since 2013. Council unanimously adopted the proposal on Nov. 25, 2013 as a component of the city’s Comprehensive Plan. It was decided that the plan would be updated every five to six years to remain current and reflect changes within the community. “The process takes about a year and involves public engagement and Planning Commission review with a recommendation to council,” said communications specialist Becky Range. “Council action on amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and adoption of the PROS plan is expected next year.” The now six-year-old plan was created to represent the community’s vision for parks and recreation through the year 2035. The purpose of the PROS plan is to guide the development of various

The updated plan intends to improve parks and recreational facilities, such as baseball fields.

park facilities, while implementing resident recommendations. Responses from local residents have been collected through surveys and meetings to generate goals and policy actions for the updated PROS plan. The city’s service vision and mission is “Propelling Kenmore Upward — We create a thriving community where people love where they live.” Goals to achieve with the revised plan include improved waterfront access, safer walking

routes and a more financially sustainable system for parks and recreation. Additionally, the updates aim to create higher community engagement with decisions and activities in the city, while providing equitable opportunities for more inclusive and affordable programs and events. According to the draft of goals, objectives and policies for the plan, the city’s natural environment is the “principal condition” of Kenmore’s PROS plan. A system of interconnected wildlife habitats

and waterways are to be better protected by this amended version of the document. Kenmore residents aim to protect the environment by restoring habitats and educating the public. Other key values include finding potential partners to help fund parks, creating balance to adhere to diversity and instilling civic pride in public spaces. One obstacle is the desire to secure assets for future generations to visit parks and recreation facilities. Residents find it important to repair and replace aspects of recreation, as well as maintain and restore natural park attractions. “It’s important for us to understand if our community needs or interests have significantly changed since the last update,” said Range. Between 2015 and 2019, various public outreach efforts and condition assessments were conducted, including multiple opinion surveys to gauge community interest. Results from the collective efforts revealed obstacles to

overcome in order to improve the parks and recreation system. “One of the first steps in the process is completing a community survey, which we did this spring,” said Range. “This first mailed survey is part of a statistically valid survey process and was mailed to a random sampling of homes throughout all areas of our city.” According to the final report findings from the city’s parks and recreation survey, 93 percent of respondent households indicated they have visited city parks and recreation facilities in the past 12 months. The survey found that restrooms, walking paths and parking were the three most important park features to respondents and their households. In additional to the mailed survey, there will be public city meetings and open houses to discuss community responses. Range explained that the Planning Commission has already met several times to discuss the PROS plan thus far.
