Redmond High graduate showing improvement since falling from a cliff MARY STEVENS DECKER mdecker@redmond-reporter.com

Tuesday, there was a major breakthrough for 18-year-old Redmond resident Chanel Cogan, who was critically injured in a hiking accident on July 31. She said her first full words since the accident, telling her mom Mimi Cogan, “Goodnight,” “Love you” and “Bye.” The night before, Chanel had uttered her first two audible syllables, “OK,” since the accident. Cogan, a 2010 graduate of Redmond High School, was camping with friends near Kachess Lake when she decided to go for a hike and fell 100 feet from a cliff. The terrible fall resulted in brain trauma, a stroke, severe cuts and numerous broken bones. Initially hospitalized at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Cogan was recently moved to Bothell Health Care for rehabilitation and was still technically in a coma, “but I feel she’s coming out of it,” Mimi told the Redmond Reporter in a phone interview Sept. 14. Chanel has been gazing at family and friends, showing signs that she recognizes them and trying to communicate through touch or facial expressions. She has also tried to mouth words but Monday was the first time her family and friends heard her actually speak again. “Her boyfriend just about fell over,” said Mimi, referring to Chanel’s longtime boyfriend Charlie Culbert, who works at Redmond’s Emerald Heights retirement community, as did Chanel and many of her friends. “He holds the key to most of Chanel’s success. When he stares at her, she smiles. ... Her mom and dad, she just tolerates having us around,” Mimi added, laughing. “Chanel is improving every day, has her fan club coming to see her. They play guitar in her room, talk and laugh. We think she hears them and understands,” said Mimi. During her recent physical therapy, Chanel is “really using her stomach muscles, back muscles, which are really strong because she was an athlete,” [ more COGAN page 3 ]

The club meets every Thursday evening at the teen center. There’s no fee to join and all local teens are welcome. “We have a core group of teens that attends weekly and helps organize the meetings or jams,” said Dylan Wall, the media lab coordinator at the OFH. “People have brought all kinds of small noise makers and shakers, children’s toy instruments, industrial signal generators and proper weird instruments including the bazooki, castanets, accordion, xylophone, djembe, conga drums and lots more. We’ll also allow electric guitars, as long as the sound is manipulated in a creative way.” See story, PAGE 8. CHAD COLEMAN, REDMOND REPORTER

Identity theft on the rise in Redmond Thieves are targeting social media, says police lieutenant MARY STEVENS DECKER mdecker@redmond-reporter.com

Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in Redmond and nationwide, with the 2009 U.S. victim population estimated at 10.4 million, according to Lt. Doug Shepard of Redmond Police Department (RPD). Shepard shared facts about identity theft and tips on how to prevent it at the Greater Redmond Chamber of Com-

merce’s Sept. 15 luncheon at Matt’s Rotisserie, Redmond Town Center.

WHO’S YOUR BUDDY?

Half of all identity theft is committed by someone the victim knows, said Shepard. While the elderly are frequently targeted, the largest number of victims are actually in the age group between 20-29, the most likely to freely use social media. “Facebook is a huge source of information for fraudsters,” Shepard warned. “Everybody puts everything on Facebook and it’s not as secure as they say it is.” Stolen or lost credit cards or

driver’s licenses often lead to identity theft, he added. Other scams happen via telephone or the Internet. These include advance fee schemes, job scams, sweepstakes/prize scams, foreign lottery scams and so on. Shepard showed a bogus document made to look like a sweepstakes claim notification. The scammer asks the recipient to send a tax payment of $2,995 in advance of receiving a prize of $250,000. “If it’s too good to be true, it’s not,” Shepard stated.

SCAMS GALORE

Shepard outlined other common scams:

• Pharming occurs when criminal hackers redirect Internet traffic from one Web site to a different, identical-looking site to trick you into entering your user name and password. • Phishing is the solicitation of personal and account information through realistic-looking account verification e-mails. • Vishing (voice phishing) is using the phone to obtain your personal information, usually in an automated recording. • Smishing refers to social media schemes involving text messaging to your cell phone that sends you to links that ask for your personal information.

SIMPLE PRECAUTIONS

Scammers can easily obtain your personal information by stealing your mail, prowling your car, digging through your trash or installing skimming devices at ATMs, said Shepard. “Your cell phone nowadays is the computer of 20 years ago,” said Shepard. “But it’s a great source of information for us to investigate fraud.” Just as text messages can try to infect your phone and gain access to personal data, police can use stored data from your phone to track down the bad guys. Of course, don’t respond

to suspicious messages, Shepard said. And with regard to social networking, via sites like MySpace and Facebook, Shepard commented, “As a cop, it would be a bad idea to tell everyone where I live, what I like to do, what my family looks like. ... It’s a bad idea for police or anyone. ... And if employees use Facebook at work, now your company is vulnerable because they may provide access to sensitive information. Craigslist is also a huge source of scams.” “Is there any safe way to use social media?,” a luncheon attendee inquired. “No,” Shepard replied. Other tips from Shepard

[ COGAN from page 1] Mimi continued. “We don’t know the long-term outcome, we’re just thinking positive. With a stroke and brain injury, she’s basically still in a coma and trying to come out of it. ... It’s been a little over six weeks, but it looks promising. ... It’s such a weird situation to talk to educated doctors and hear, ‘I don’t know.’ With the brain, you never know how it will recover.” But Mimi and the rest of Chanel’s family, including her dad Pat and older sister Tiffany, a student at University of Arizona, have felt very blessed by the outpouring of love and encouragement from the community. People have brought them meals, taken care of their dog and made generous donations to The Chanel Cogan Special Needs Trust at Bank of America and to upcoming fundraising endeavors to help offset the astronomical medical bills. Because Pat is self-employed as a general contractor and Mimi recently switched jobs, they did not have medical insurance when Chanel’s accident occurred. Just one of the bills from Harborview was more than $365,000. However, Mimi remains upbeat, asking friends and neighbors to support the fundraisers for Chanel, to pray and offer “positive thoughts for Chanel to

Event honors Redmond businesswomen MARY STEVENS DECKER

mdecker@redmond-reporter.com

The Redmond Reporter, Redmond Town Center and Village Roadshow Gold Class Cinemas co-hosted a “Women in Business” networking event Sept. 14 at the Gold Class Cinemas. The event drew around 50 women, representing oc-

cupations such as realtors, restaurant owners, florists, hair stylists, yoga instructors and more. Many of the participants were also honored in a recent “Women In Business” section in the Redmond Reporter. Along with celebrating the variety of enterprising women in Redmond, the event was a benefit for the

YWCA Family Village’s Working Wardrobe program. That program helps women and men who’ve been unemployed and/or displaced from their homes, get appropriate clothing for jobs and job interviews. Cheri Kilty, regional YWCA director for East King County, said the Working Wardrobe program and other employment assistance programs at the YWCA have a profound impact on their clients and the community at large. “Women burst into tears when they get their clothes. They can’t believe other women care about them,” said Kilty. “Even in this bad economy, there are so many success stories of people getting back on their feet.” Guests at the “Women in Business” event enjoyed beverages and appetizers and got a tour of the luxurious Gold Class Cinemas as well as sharing each other’s success stories and learning about upcoming activities at Redmond Town Center. This Saturday, Sept. 18, community members are invited to a free, family-friendly event called Good Fest, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. in Redmond Town Center’s street plaza. The fest will include live music, circus train rides, miniature golf, an electronic gaming station and other fun. For more information, visit www.redmondtown center.com.

City aims to turn old rail line into downtown connector MARY STEVENS DECKER mdecker@redmond-reporter.com

The City of Redmond held a community visioning event to celebrate its acquisition of the Redmond section of the former Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Corridor on Sept. 15. A downpour forced participants to grab umbrellas or scramble into tents, but music by a group called the “Toy Boats” and “park bench” interviews conducted by representatives of Seattle-based theater simple brought a touch of whimsy to the festivities, at the northwest corner of Leary Way and Bear Creek Parkway in downtown Redmond. The Redmond Central Connector includes a 3.89-mile-long linear corridor that extends from

the east end of the Bear Creek Trail in Redmond Town Center to Northeast 124th Street. “The railroad has been at the heart of Redmond since the city incorporated,” explained Carolyn J. Hope, senior park planner for the City of Redmond. “As the city grew into a suburb, the railroad began to divide the city — the north from the south, the new and the old and the industrial from the commercial. Over the past 10 years, the city has continued to develop further into an urban center. In 2008, the railroad abandoned the tracks in Redmond. Now the rail corridor is in the hands of the city and it is time to revitalize Redmond again as the Redmond Central Connector.” The plan is to make the corridor a lively place with pedestrian

REAL ESTATE REDMOND

and transit connections, places for neighbors to meet and mingle and increased visibility for nearby businesses. “Redevelopment of this corridor will both redefine the heart of Redmond and respect Redmond’s history,” Hope stated. The city’s goals for this project are to create an award-winning park/trail corridor, incorporating art and entertainment as well as transit options like light rail. Repurposing the corridor should ultimately make downtown Redmond an enticing destination — not just a place to drive through, from point A to point B. That, in turn, will benefit downtown merchants and increase economic vitality. “I think it’s fabulous,” said Rep.

Ross Hunter, a Democrat from the 48th Legislative District, who attended the event and took a walk along the corridor with Redmond Mayor John Marchione. “Walking along the corridor gives you a new orientation on Redmond,” Hunter commented. “It gives Redmond a center that it doesn’t have now — it makes urban centers and density be cool and fun, not ugly or industrial. The condos here are selling out. People want to be part of this.” Downtown Redmond resident Mary Kellison confirmed that notion. “I love it here. I moved here so I could walk to shopping and entertainment. In fact, I just walked over here for this event,” said Kellison.

Guests at the event were asked to jot down ideas about what would make the park most appealing, how the corridor can express “what Redmond is all about” and how it can function as a multi-modal transportation center. Comments from this visioning event and other community feedback will be used to develop alternative conceptual designs, which will be presented for review at a public meeting, tentatively scheduled for November. If you missed the visioning event, you can still be part of the planning process. Visit http:// www.redmond.gov/insidecityhall/ park srec/parksplanning/BNSF/ BNSF.asp or e-mail comments to Carolyn J.

A new reality for health costs

A

major employer in our region is making big changes in its benefits package. Boeing’s non-union workers are going to pay more for their health insurance. And it’s likely that union workers won’t be far

behind. The news should serve as a dose of reality to private and public employees alike. According to Boeing Commercial Airplanes chief Jim Albaugh, the aircraft maker pays about 89 percent of total health care costs for employees. The problem is that other major corporations pay less. For example, Lockheed Martin, General Electric and 3M pay about 70 percent of the employee health bill. Worse, employee health care costs, which are estimated at $2.4 billion this year, are expected to rise to as much as $3.1 billion by 2015. Taken together, Albaugh says, and it “adds about $2 million to the cost of every airplane we build.” Ouch. The news that employees are being asked to pay a greater share of their health care costs shouldn’t come as a surprise. That’s been the trend for some time now with private companies. Now that change needs to be understood by union employees of private business and government workers. At Boeing, as with many large employers, contract agreements govern wages and benefits. But make no mistake

– what worked in the past isn’t likely to fly in the future. As Albaugh noted, health care cost increases “will be discussed as those contracts are renegotiated.” What Boeing, other large companies and even government officials understand is that there is a major change coming because of the recent Health Care Reform Law passed earlier this year. Those companies and governments giving Cadillac health plans to their workers could be subject to a

substantial tax. Boeing’s non-union workers will find out next month what the company’s new health care plans will cost them. Boeing’s union workers should pay attention. The International Association of Machinists (IAM) and with the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace (SPEEA) will bargain new contracts in 2010. What they see on the non-union side is likely what they’ll get.

Costly ballot measures turn us away from our values

I

n just a couple of months, voters will decide on a number of initiatives that will shape our state. While ostensibly the ballot measures are about the price of candy, soda, bottled water and beer, or privatizing liquor, remember each measure will carry a hefty price tag in the hundreds of millions of dollars. In the midst of this recession, they will force cuts in some of our state’s key priorities. And those cuts will come on top of the $4.3 billion we’ve already cut from the state budget over the last two years. In fact, the main response to the recession has been to cut and slash. And that’s meant that many of the things we hold dear as a state have been going up in smoke. In other words, we’ll decide in this election whether we want to take more steps backward from the things we hold dear. Let’s look at what the recession has already forced us to cut. The current 2009-2011 budget will spend 10 percent less than the amount necessary to maintain our previous commitments to education, communities, health care, and economic security. These are cuts to practical, common sense values we share as a state. We know that education is

fundamental to our future, especially in a global economy where the states with highly trained workers hold an advantage in attracting businesses. Yet we have cut early-learning, the voter-approved I-728 measures to improve K-12, and access to higher education. All together, we have cut our investments in education and opportunity by 11.3 percent during a time when education is critical to our future prosperity. We know also the state plays an important role in protecting natural resources and maintain thriving communities. Yet we’ve made budget cuts that have hurt our ability to manage wildlife, protect habitats and enforce laws that protect resources and endangered species. We’ve cut funding for juvenile rehabilitation community supervision for misdemeanants, and programs intended to assist adult offenders’ re-enter society and turn away from a life of crime. In total, we’ve cut funding for the things that support our quality of life by 7.3 percent. We’ve cut Basic Health, the program that provides affordable health insurance for lower income families, most of whom are working but lack employer-provided coverage. The 43 percent cut will eliminate coverage for over 44,000 people and increase premiums for Remy Trupin

the remaining enrollees by 50 to 100 percent. It’s part of a 9.3 percent cut we’ve made in funding for the health of our neighbors and the environment. We’ve cut child care and health care that allows parents to work, as part of a 9.7 percent cut in funding to help those struggling in this economy survive. And that doesn’t include the $51 million in cuts Gov. Gregoire recently announced for Workfirst. When we’re resorting to cutting thousands of families off a program in which people have to have children and be working or actively trying to find work to qualify, we’ve hit the depths of what can be cut. On top of all that, the governor is planning to make 4-7 percent in across-the-board cuts on Oct. 1. It’s in this context that voters will go to the polls in November. Initiative 1107 would cost the state $352 million by repealing taxes of candy, gum, bottled water and soda passed by the state. These modest and mostly temporary increases – which was in line with

what other states passed, by the way – was made to prevent even more damaging cuts. Risky liquor deregulation Initiatives 1100 and 1105 would force more cuts. I-1100 comes with a hefty price tag of $115-$123 million; I-115 is an even more Cadillac plan, costing $513$547 million. Meanwhile, I-1053 is an irresponsible measure that would allow a minority of legislators to block the state from taking a balanced approach of cuts and modest revenue increases to protect our priorities. Had this been in place this year, the state would have had to cut another 70,000 from the Basic Health plan, plus 16,000 children from health care coverage and eliminating thousands of teachers. Indeed, this is a critical election. We’ll decide as a state if we want to see further erosion in what we’ve valued as Washingtonians. Remy Trupin is executive director of the Washington State Budget and Policy Center, an independent, nonpartisan think tank that specializes in state fiscal issues.

All together, we have cut our investments in education and opportunity by 11.3 percent during a time when education is critical to our future prosperity.

Lake Washington students show ‘steady’ improvement in SAT scores Lake Washington School District (LWSD) seniors scored higher overall on the SAT last spring than in previous years. District students continue to score well above state and national averages. District scores by subject increased in the reading and writing tests while dropping one point on mathematics. At the same time, Washington state and national scores gained one point on average in math and remained the same in reading. State scores gained an average of one point in writing while national averages fell one point. Over the last five years, average SAT scores in Washington and nationally have fallen or remained the same. At the same time, LWSD’s average scores have increased by 11 in math, 13 in critical reading and 14 in writing on average. “We are seeing steady, sustained improvement in SAT scores,” LWSD superintendent Dr. Chip Kimball said. “Hard work by our teachers and students led to the continuous improvement we are after.” This year, the largest increase came in writing scores. LWSD collegebound seniors averaged 555 in writing, up four points from 551 in 2009. The mean for all college-bound seniors who took the test is

writing test began. Mean math scores decreased by one point for LWSD college-bound seniors, from 574 in 2009 to 573 in 2010 after a fourpoint jump from 2008 to

MUSIC-MAKING WITH A TWIST Teen center now features Weird Instrument Club

Casey Catherwood, events coordinator at OFH, sings during a meeting of the Weird Instrument Club at the Old Fire House Teen Center in Redmond. The club has been meeting Thursday evenings throughout the summer at 16510 NE 79th St. and plans to continue through the fall. There’s no fee to join and all local teens are welcome.

MARY STEVENS DECKER mdecker@redmond-reporter.com

Dr. Demento would be so proud. Redmond’s Old Fire House (OFH) Teen Center, long famous for its all-ages rock concerts, now features a Weird Instrument Club, dedicated to adventurous music-making. The club has been meeting Thursday evenings throughout the summer at 16510 NE 79th St. and plans to continue through the fall. There’s no fee to join and all local teens are welcome. “We have a core group of teens that attends weekly and helps organize the meetings or jams,” said Dylan Wall, the media lab coordinator at the OFH. “People have brought all kinds of small noise makers and shakers, children’s toy instruments, industrial signal generators and proper weird instruments including bazooki, castanets, accordion, xylophone, djembe, conga drums and lots more. We’ll also allow electric guitars, as long as the sound is manipulated in a creative way.” Wall noted, “Our definition of ‘weird instrument’ can get a bit loose, but we’re just trying to stay away from a typical rock and roll jam. The goal is to create a unique

CHAD COLEMAN, Redmond Reporter

orchestration using a very assorted collection of instruments.” At last, there’s a venue for folks who play spoons, a saw or an Oscar Mayer Wiener Whistle. And there’s no need to master “Stairway to Heaven.” Said Wall, “It’s hard to classify the songs that are played as anything other than avant-garde. Most rely heavily on a basic rhythm and treat pitch as an afterthought. Rather than focus on composition with the club, we rotate participants from instrument to instrument and explore the different sounds that each can make. It would be an absolute

blast to assemble a group that could perform, but it would require a revisioning of the program.” Of course, there still are plenty of opportunities for serious teen musicians to play and record at the OFH. Wall studied at Shoreline Community College and has worked at recording studios and music organizations throughout the greater Seattle area. Casey Catherwood, who also helps with the Weird Instrument Club, graduated from Redmond High School in 2006 and played many shows at the OFH while

working toward an associate’s degree at Seattle Central. “I wrote a weekly music column about all-ages music for The Stranger, worked at a record store and now I’m proudly the event coordinator or the best teen center in the world (the OFH),” said Catherwood. Teens with questions about the Weird Instrument Club or other performance opportunities at the OFH can e-mail Dylan Wall at DJWall@redmond.gov or Casey Catherwood at mccatherwood@ redmond.gov or call the OFH at (425) 556-2370.

Seattle optometrist helps legally blind to see again By Elena Lombardi Freelance Writer Just because you have macular degeneration or other eye diseases like diabetic retinopathy doesn’t mean you must give up driving. Ever look through a pair of field glasses or binoculars? Things look bigger and closer, and much easier to see. Dr. Ross Cusic is using miniaturized binoculars or telescopes to help people who have lost vision from macular degeneration or other eye conditions. “Some of my patients consider me the last stop for people who have vision loss.” Said Dr. Cusic, a low vision Optometrist. “People don’t know that there are doctors who are very experienced in low vision care.” Irv Matthes drove all the way from Penticton, BC to Kirkland, “Thank you for putting some living back into my life. I could never have done this without these reading glasses. Now I can write this letter and solve the daily cryptogram in the newspaper.” Macular Degeneration is the most common eye disease amongst the senior population. As many as 25% of those over 65 have some degree of degeneration. The macula is one small part of the entire retina, but it is the most sensitive and gives us sharp images. When it degenerates macular degeneration leaves a blind spot right in the center of vision making it impossible to recognize faces, read a book, or pass the driver’s vision test. The experts do not know what causes macular degeneration. But it is known that UV light from the sun is a major contributing factor. Other factors are smoking, aging of course, and improper nutrition. 15 to 20% of the time is is genetic. There are two types, wet and dry. The wet type involves leaky blood vessels and can be lasered shut. Unfortunately, it’s a temporary fix since other leaks usually occur. “Our job is to figure out everything and anything possible to keep a person functioning.” says Dr. Cusic. Washington and Oregon are among many states that allow the use of telescopic glasses to help meet the vision requirements for driving. Donald Pauerre, 72, a former county assessor from Anaheim, California was seen last November. I could not read my saxophone music anymore.”

Carole Buckles with bioptic telecopes. The doctor fit him with bioptic telescope glasses. “Amazing!” says Donald. “I can read the street signs twice as far as I did before. I can play my sax again. Happy day!” Dr. Cusic also provides special prismatic reading glasses to make the newspaper a little easier to read. Carole Buckles, 71, of Arcadia, California came on the advise of a friend. “I wanted to be able to keep driving and do the fun things in life.” One of those fun things is baseball. “I love going to baseball games and now I can see those close plays again,” say Carol. Bioptic Telescopic glasses were prescribed to read signs and see traffic lights farther away. As Carole put it, “These telescope glasses not only allow me to read signs from a farther distance, but make driving much easier. I’ve also used them to watch television so I don’t have to sit so close. Definitely worth the $1950 cost. I don’t know why I waited two years to do this. I should have come sooner.” Peter Rhodes traveled from Manchester, UK to be fit for special amorphic glasses for Retinitis Pigmentosa. He is one of the first patients in the United States or the UK to be helped with this rare eye disorder. Ellen Imboden traveled for Sweden and was helped with two pairs of glasses. Special $475 prismatic glasses that let her read newsprint, as well as bioptic telecopes to continue driving in Sweden. Low vision devices are not always expensive. Some reading glasses cost as little as $375 and some magnifers under $100. Every case is different because people have different levels of vision and different desires. Dr. Cusic sees patients in his offices in Kirkland, Bellingham and Olympia, and can be reached at: 425-285-1230 or tollfree at 1-877-823-2020.

Trees cut down for new sidewalk, bike lane City: trees must go for safety reasons MARY STEVENS DECKER mdecker@redmond-reporter.com

At least one nearby business owner is concerned about a large number of mature Maple trees being removed on Northeast 90th Street near Willows Road, to install a sidewalk and bike lane, but City of Redmond officials say the trees must go for safety reasons. “Even though Northeast 90th is a bit like an industrial park area, the nice thing

about Redmond is that usually they try to maintain green area anywhere they can. These trees were gorgeous, 40-foot tall trees that squirrels and birds lived in, and it’s a shame to see that it has to be turned into a typical barren ‘warehouse row’ kind of street without much green. Replacing 50-year old trees with saplings doesn’t do much good until 25 years down the road,” commented Charles Graves, owner of the Aqua Sports Kayak Shop on Northeast 90th Street. Phil Day, the construction project manager for the City of Redmond’s

2010 Sidewalk Improvements Project explained, “The project will provide a new sidewalk, curb, gutter and wheelchair ramps on the south side of Northeast 90th Street between Willows Road and 154th Avenue Northeast.” Day said, “A total of 33 trees are being removed and the reasons vary. Most are in conflict with the new sidewalk, which is restricted by the existing road on one side and parking for businesses on the other. Several trees were in the line of sight for drivers and are being removed for safety.

Twenty-three new trees will be planted and 15 existing trees are being preserved.” Day noted, “Tree removal decisions are part of the design process, which includes participation by various departments, including Public Works, Planning, Parks and Transportation. Each department has input.” Property owners on Northeast 90th Street were notified and given opportunities to participate in the planning process, as well, said Day. In addition, information about the 2010 Sidewalk Improvements Project was posted on the City of Redmond’s Web site at http://www.redmond.gov/ insidecityhall/publicworks/ construction/downtown.asp. Redmond City Council president Richard Cole said the project was approved by

Had there been another alternative, such as winding the sidewalk around the trees, we would have chosen it. There are more and more pedestrians and bikers using 90th. It has become a real

safety risk. As part of our plan, we will be installing landscaping next to the sidewalk that will include trees. However, it will take several years before they mature.” Cole continued, “This sidewalk was part of our annual sidewalk funding which is part of our capital improvement program. We have a list of missing sidewalks in the city. We build some of them each year. This project has been on the list for several years.” While some residents and business owners may be unhappy about the loss of trees, Cole remarked, “Safety is one of our most important concerns. The situation along 90th was a hazard for pedestrians and bikers. While we always try to save trees, especially mature ones, it was not possible on this project.”

ypertension (HTN) is the term used to describe high blood pressure. Blood pressure (BP) is usually given as two numbers, such as, 120 over 80 (written as 120/80 mmHg). The upper and lower numbers are called systolic and diastolic, respectively. In general, hypertension is defined as the blood pressure higher than 140/90, in either or both numbers. In the U.S., hypertension affects more than 74 million people. Most of the time, hypertension is insidious and asymptomatic. However, undiagnosed, uncontrolled, or chronic hypertension could cause underlying changes of vital organs, including the heart, brain and kidney. Symptoms such as chest pain, irregular heartbeat, confusion, tiredness, ear noise or buzzing, vision changes are common in patients with hypertension. Also, rapidly raising BP could create a life threatening emergency. The exact mechanism for about 90 percent of hypertension cases is unknown. However, the major risk factors are:

BP is controlled, the risks of stroke, heart disease, and related death decrease significantly. Because BP fluctuates every minute of every day, any single measurement is not enough to see the whole picture. If hypertension patients have a BP cuff at home, checking it and writing down on a log could be very useful. Home-BP-monitoring will provide complete BP info to help doctors on the medical decision making. Currently, both aneroid and digital cuffs are available in all drug stores. The aneroid monitor has a gauge that is read by looking at a pointer on a dial. The cuff is placed around your upper arm and inflated by hand, by squeezing a rubber bulb. Digital monitors have automatic cuffs operated by battery. It will inflate and deflate automatically. The blood pressure reading flashes on a small screen. The finger and wrist BP cuff are not as accurate as an elbow one. The home BP monitoring is recommended by American Association of Family Physicians and other medical organizations. Dr. Pen Hou is a family physician with Redmond Family Care. For more information, call (425) 310-6519.

Many of them have gone through the program in just the past few years, with Sarah Lord and Devin McMahon on the girls’ side and runners like Aiden Irish, Mack Young and Will Young for the boys’ squad. While the team may not have that superstar runner of years past, Villeneuve said his young team has tons of potential, starting with his No. 1 runner on the boys’ team, senior Miles Hille, who was running in the shadows of Mack and Will last year.

Redmond High cross country team captains, from left, Cotter Boyle, Logan Dougherty, Jenna Sanders and Miles Hille lead the way on the trails for the Mustangs. Chad Coleman, Redmond Reporter “Miles is looking great,” said Villeneuve, adding that he won the seasonopening Kingco Preview Meet at Lincoln Park last week. “His time was eight

seconds slower than Mack Young’s tie in 2009 ... he has high goals and if he can stay healthy, he should do well.” Hille said that he has put in a lot of work during the

offseason, running as many as 50 miles a week and 10 a day on occasion. “I just had a fantastic Kingco meet, had a personal best in it, and that actually

felt easy,” Hille admitted, adding that he has his sights set on the top 10 at state. “I’m really excited for the year ... I’ve really tried to lengthen my endurance.” The rest of the boys’ side is looking especially solid, as four boys who were in the top 18 in Kingco all return, and the pivotal No. 5 spot will most likely be filled by incoming freshman Zach Kirwan. “We’re feeling pretty optimistic,” Villeneuve commented. On the girls’ side, the 2010 season should allow for last year’s runners to step up and have breakout years, and they will need to after the graduation of McMahon, who finished third at the 4A state meet last fall and now runs at Cornell University. “We graduated a bunch again ... we’ve got Kelsey Dunn, a freshman who looks real good, and Lila Rice, a

Redmond tennis stars aim to soar high BILL CHRISTIANSON bchristianson@redmond-reporter.com

No longer a secret on the tennis court, Jeff Jou has his sights set on a state berth. And Jou’s teammate, Scott Singleton, is aiming to make plenty of racket in his final high school campaign before taking flight at aeronautical school. Buddies since seventh grade, the two Redmond High School tennis stars have high hopes this fall.

Jou: Small, but solid

Jou, a junior who played No. 1 singles as a sopho-

TENNIS PREVIEW 2010 more last fall, was a relative unknown last year on 4A Kingco courts, but not anymore after a district quarterfinal run last fall. “He’s good, he’s known now,” Singleton said. Redmond tennis coach Marceil Whitney said don’t be fooled by Jou’s diminutive stature. “For his size, he really knows how to put something behind that ball,” the coach said. “People who don’t know him and see his stature, they go ‘oh this is going to be a

piece of cake.’ But when he gets on the court, it’s a different story.” Whitney admitted that many opponents underestimated Jou in his first year playing varsity tennis last fall, but that has changed this year. “Don’t let the size fool you, the guy is a solid player,” she said. Jou began playing tennis in seventh grade at Redmond Junior High, where he first met Singleton. He said he spent five hours a day playing tennis when he first started. [ more TENNIS page 15 ]

Redmond High cross country teams show great promise this season [ MUSTANGS from page 13] transfer from Seattle Academy,” Villeneuve said. “Those two make us a lot stronger. Holly Young is our fastest

returning girl, and then Jenna Sanders and Allie Nichols.” The acquisition of Rice may prove to be huge for the Mustangs, as she placed second at the 1A state cham-

sMembers of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry

pionships last year, and gives the Mustangs a solid top five. And Dunn finished first on the team at the Kingco Preview meet, running her first high school cross country meet in 20:08. And for those kids who don’t have those real fast times yet, what is the key to seeing improvement throughout the season?

“I’ve learned how to get these kids ready,” the longtime coach said. “The veteran runners are being really good about educating the younger runners about following the coaching program. It will just take some time, you need experience and to learn some pacing, and all that. If they can stay healthy and get some

races under their belt, then they will start to see that improvement.” If the Mustangs improve as expected throughout their 2010 campaign, don’t be surprised to see them make a threat at the state meet at Pasco’s Sun Willows Golf Course this November. “We want to try and get as high as we can at Kingco,

go to districts and qualify for state (as a team),” said Villeneuve on his team goals. “If you can get in the top four at state you get a trophy, and that’s always our goal. It seems like we can get to state again if we’re healthy and working well.”

Singleton, a senior who has played in a ton of United States Tennis Association tournaments over the summer, said he has improved his game and is just looking to do his best every time out on the court and see what happens from there. “I have a lot to work on,” he said. “I just want to do the best I can.” Singleton said a state berth would be the ideal finish to his high school career. As a sophomore, he advanced to the district tournament in singles and last year, he teamed up with Matt Lee, to make a run to the district tournament in doubles. “This year, I hope to go even farther,” said Singleton, who currently plays

He gives a lot of credit to Singleton for driving him to tennis practices and matches and of course pushing him on the tennis court in practice. Jou is hoping all that practice will pay off this season. “Nothing’s for sure, but I’m really hoping to get to state. To my knowledge, there are some really good players, but nothing I can’t handle.”

Singleton, 17, said he first flew a plane at age 15 and spends endless hours on his flight simulator at home. But right now, his focus is on taking flight on the tennis court and soaring past the competition.

twatanabe@redmond-reporter.com

The Redmond High School football team won its first game of the season last Friday night at Lake Washington High School, defeating the 3A Kangaroos 28-7. The Mustangs were in control from the get-go, scoring on their first drive — a 2-yard touchdown run by quarterback Michael Conforto — set up by a 47yard pass from Conforto to receiver Nikolaj LaCour. On the very next drive, Conforto, the secondyear starting quarterback, launched a touchdown

pass — that head coach Jeff Chandler called one of the best plays he’s seen in 15 years of coaching high school football. The 27-yard tight-spiral pass landed into the outstretched arms of Cody Klepinger as the Mustangs opened up a 14-0 lead. “That second touchdown in the first half was just pretty,” Chandler recalled. “He had time, he saw his read, picked the correct read, threw it right before the break and put it right on the money.” Chandler lauded his offensive line for giving Conforto plenty of time to read the defense, something that did not happen during the Mustangs’ 41-7 loss to

Juanita last week. The Mustangs ended up scoring on four unanswered drives to go up 28-0, before LW got on the board when sophomore quarterback Shawn Gray hit Alex Donnelly for a 14-yard score with 2:14 left in the third quarter. “This win was huge for us to get the momentum going and show everybody in the Redmond community that Redmond’s back, and we’ve changed,” said Conforto. The Mustangs kick off their league schedule against Woodinville this Friday at home, with kickoff at 7 p.m. More story online www.redmond-reporter.com

Firewood, Fuel & Stoves

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension.
