The downtown salmon are here!


Credit: John Reinke
Have you gone out yet to look for the salmon migrating up the river and into Bear Creek?  John Reinke, an Education Hill resident, known for his downtown nature photography saw salmon jumping under the 80th Street Bridge yesterday. Here's one of his pictures!  
It's funny, I went upstream to the Bear Creek nature park behind Safeway yesterday and couldn't find any.  I saw a lot of people enjoying the park and looking for these amazing, colorful fish.  My guess is they'll make it up there by mid-October?

I hope you're enjoying these beautiful Autumn days!

UPDATED,9/28 We know who runs the district's facility planning and transportation team, but what's "Support Services?"

OPINION: Yeah!  Superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce revamped the school district's organizational chart; more importantly she is now posting the job descriptions of her Leadership team!  This is a significant improvement in governance transparency.

Now we know Forest Miller is responsible for facilities planning and transportation! His title is "Director of Support Services." -- it's kinda confusing. From my limited knowledge, his participation during Bond Task Force meetings was over-ridden by one of the superintendents and, in my opinion, this led to a lack of confidence within the community.  Do you remember the negative Letters to the Editor?

Last week, my wife and I attended the North Redmond Elementary school meeting at City Hall. Mr. Miller gave a super 30 minute presentation on the proposed school and actively participated in the poster sessions.  He's an approachable professional, kind, and an excellent speaker.  I'm so happy Forest was taken out of his cubical so we could see his true talents and feel more confident about how our new schools are built and district land is acquired.

We also know Janene Fogard is the district's Chief Operating Officer!  Yet, at the North Redmond El presentation she was introduced by her old title, "Deputy Superintendent of Support Services."   Huh? What does that tell us, other than she's important?

As COO she has a huge responsibility -- oversight of district finances and the budget (still not transparent), oversight of the district computers and software, oversight of facilities planning, oversight of transportation....and on. For accountability alone, it's important we know she's the COO, not just someone in charge of Support Services.

The City hosts Archaeology Day at Lower Bear Creek

REDMOND, WA - The City hosts 2016 Archaeology Day, part of an annual global exploration of archeology, on Saturday, October 15, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Bear Creek project director Dr. Robert Kopperl will be presenting at the new overlook of the Lower Bear Creek habitat restoration area across form 164th Ave. NE along the Bear Creek recreational trail. Participants will have the opportunity to find out more about the Bear Creek study, new knowledge gleaned from the site, and the broader picture of the past as seen in our archaeological heritage.
The Bear Creek site, located in the heart of the City of Redmond, is the oldest excavated archaeological site with stone tools in Western Washington. It was first identified in 2008 during a routine environmental survey for a City habitat restoration project, and since then it has generated a wealth of information about Native American life from over 10,000 years ago near the outlet of Lake Sammamish.
Dr. Kopperl will be on-hand to informally provide information about the Bear Creek site and to answer questions about the project and Washington state’s shared archaeological heritage.
Learn more about the Bear Creek site here.

Red-breasted Sapsucker behind the Senior Center


Red-breasted Sapsucker
(click to enlarge)
By John Reinke
Education Hill resident

On a recent sunny May afternoon, I decided to sit out on the patio behind the Redmond Senior Center and read my newspaper.  No sooner had I unfolded it, when I noticed a beautiful red-breasted sapsucker hammering the bark of a silver birch growing up against the side of the Center.
I was astonished to see this normally shy bird so close to human habitation, with folks occasionally passing in and out of the door no more than 25 feet away.  Unwilling to let the opportunity escape me, I fished out my pocket camera and snapped off a few quick shots.  Then I remembered that my much better zoom camera was in the trunk of my car.  I scurried away to the parking lot and retrieved it, hopeful that the bird would still be there when I returned.
Indeed it was, and I proceeded to click away.  To my surprise, the sapsucker let me approach quite close to the tree without flying off.  I observed that there were several rows of holes that it had drilled at various levels.  Sap was flowing down the trunk in a frothy stream from a few of the more recent holes.
I gradually moved closer, until ultimately I was no more than about seven feet from the tree.  The sapsucker was clinging to the bark perhaps eight feet up from the ground and seemed quite unperturbed by my approach.  Over the course of the next several days, I returned to take more photos, and frequently found it busily enlarging holes or making new ones.  I also observed butterflies, ants, and a wasp feeding on the bubbly sap.  I even took photos of a land snail high up on the trunk near the holes, but I couldn't tell if it was there because it had been attracted by the sap.  After a few weeks, the sapsucker no longer showed up.
Curiously enough, in mid April, I had photographed a red-breasted sapsucker entering its nest hole very high up in a dying poplar.  The tree was located on the east side of the Sammamish River Trail across from the rusty bridge, about a half mile north of the Senior Center.  I wondered if it could have been the same bird?

Red-breasted sapsuckers are classified as fairly common west of the Cascade Mountains, according to the Seattle Audubon Society.  Males and females look much alike and vary in size from slightly less than 8 inches to slightly less than 9 inches.  They also feed on insects that are attracted to sap.

Join in on a "Neighborhood Conversation" with your Elected


An opportunity to ask Council and the Mayor about growth, school traffic, road construction, tree loss, ST-3, parks, art, cultural events, their vision for our city, or anything else on your mind.

October 3rd, Monday evening, from 6:00pm to 7:30pm the Mayor and City Council will host a casual "Neighborhood Conversation" forum at Horace Mann Elementary, located at 17001 NE 104th Street. The forum is not restricted to Education Hill residents and is open to the Public.  

“We want to hear what’s on the minds of Education Hill residents, answer your questions and share what’s going on around Redmond,” said Mayor John Marchione.  
There will be a reception at 6 pm, and the meeting will begin at 6:15 pm. The forum is “kid-friendly” and light snacks will be provided.  This is the last neighborhood conversation meeting of the year.

Please note, in past meetings the Mayor facilitated the conversations. Residents were asked to write their questions on a white board.  If you are uncomfortable with this, write your questions on index cards or paper in advance. Your questions are anonymous unless you choose otherwise.

I hope you can make it!

Links volunteer program offers three ways to support students

Image result for lwsd

In less time than it takes to binge watch two episodes of your favorite comedy, you could positively impact the life of a child in your community each week by joining the LINKS Volunteer program. LINKS stands for Looking Into the Needs of Kids and Schools. Funded by the Lake Washington Schools Foundation (LWSF), LINKS is the Lake Washington School District’s (LWSD) community mentoring program. It places adult community members into academic mentor, lunch buddy and tutoring programs throughout LWSD. Become a LINKS volunteer today!
Here’s how you can help:
·         Become an academic mentor: Academic mentors are carefully matched with a student at the middle or high school level. This volunteer opportunity takes place during the school day. The timeframe can vary from 30 minutes to an hour. Core classes (math, reading, science and writing) are often the subjects where students need extra help.
·         Become a Lunch Buddy: Lunch Buddies are matched with an elementary student and they meet one day each week during the student’s lunch hour. Volunteers bring their own lunch and meet the student in a designated area.  Most schools have fun games the volunteer and student can play together. They talk, laugh and have fun. Volunteers often share that it’s the best day of their week.  Read More >>

UPDATED, 9/20: The LWSD Organizational Chart: Who's responsible for transportation, facilities planning, and finance?

LWSD Board of Directors
Superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce and her staff have worked very hard to prepare a new Organizational Chart that clearly shows the relationships of her Superintendents and Directors. The intent of the new chart is to ensure "an effective program of instruction for pupils" and achieve the Board's educational goals ("End Results") for our students. 

The Chart is under consideration for approval by the Board this Monday evening, 9/19 at 7 PM, District HQ.  Dr. Pierce's proposed Chart is here:   

2016-17 Organizational Chart Recommended by Dr. Pierce and awaiting approval from the Board in this Monday's 7PM Board Meeting 


Notable changes from the 2015-2016 Chart:

1.)  The Board is included on the Chart!
2.)  The Director of Business and Support Services is promoted to Assistant Superintendent. 
3.) H.R. and both Associate Superintendent departments are beefed up with additional Directors. Transparency of the Associate Superintendents' roles are enhanced!
4) Links connect the Executive Secretary to the Board, so you can contact them with your questions and feedback!  Call 425-936-1257
5) Silos are eliminated and collaboration is heightened!

Unfortunately, the Chart doesn't fully identify the roles of three key executives vital to passing Bond measures and running the operation.  We don't know who manages and oversees finance, facilities planning and transportation.  With roles not fully transparent, the public loses confidence and respect for the system...deterring bond approval and thus student learning conditions.    

If any of this bothers you, go to the Board meeting this Monday night, 9/19, 7 PM, District HQ and speak to the Directors during the public comment period; and ask Board President Nancy Bernard to delay action on the Chart, for another meeting, until further study.    

And if this doesn't bother you, that's cool too.  

Thanks, 
Bob Yoder

Report by city staff, more construction projects to come

Image result for bulldozer images
image grabbed from Internet
Last night city staff gave Council an update on public/private construction projects.  Here's a very brief summary of some of the projects you may be interested in:

1.  Willows Preparatory School is planning to build a 48,000 square foot facility on the old Thenos ice cream site just north of the glassed Washington Cathedral building. A dormitory to house 40 students is part of the project. The project will have a capacity for at least 100 students. Traffic will certainly be an issue on Red-Wood Road. Work probably won't begin until 2017.

2. A new water line on Education Hill near Nike Park will be installed in early 2017.  It will be very disruptive to the surrounding neighbors and the city is already noticing the residents. The new pipe line will increase water pressure for the Fire Department.

3. A one mile extension to the downtown Central Connector trail is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

4. Sad to hear,but starting next Spring the Frankie's Pizza mall will be demolished to build Anderson Park Hotel. The  six-story hotel will have 177 rooms with under-ground and surface parking.

5.  In response to a question by Council Member Hank Myers:  peat soil removed from the Downtown Park construction site will be recycled by the contractor to build new soils. (No, it won't be screened for Indian artifacts :)

6.  A three-story, 90,000 SF storage facility will be built just south of our new Costco.

7.  876 dwelling units are under construction in the "Downtown neighborhood" as we speak.

And the beat goes on....

Most Northwest residents believe the big one is coming, but many aren't ready


Image result for earthquake preparedness
Renters are among the least prepared for a natural disaster
SEATTLE – A majority of Northwest residents believe a major earthquake will rattle the region during their lifetime, but many admit they haven’t taken simple steps to fully prepare for a natural disaster.
The latest PEMCO Insurance Northwest Poll reveals that three-quarters (77 percent) of Washington and Oregon residents expect they’ll experience a big-time earthquake here, but despite that fear, only half (52 percent) say they’re at least somewhat prepared, and two out of five (39 percent) admit they aren’t prepared at all.
According to the poll, renters are among the least prepared for an emergency. About half of Northwest renters (55 percent) admit they haven’t taken steps to prepare for a natural disaster, compared to just one-third (30 percent) of homeowners who said the same. Owning an emergency kit is one step in prepping for disasters READ MORE >>

Mayor, Council and Human Services Commission to Participate in Food Drive

Image grabbed from Internet

REDMOND, WA – Members of the Redmond City Council, the Redmond Human Services Commission, and Mayor John Marchione will participate in the “Day of Concern for the Hungry” by hosting a Food Drive on Saturday, September 17, 2016 and Sunday, September 18, 2016, at the Bella Bottega QFC store located at 8867 161st Avenue NE, Redmond, from10:00 am to 4:00 pm each day. The food drive will be hosted at grocery stores throughout both Redmond and King County to help area food banks in fighting hunger.

This year, the Mayor, Councilmembers and Commissioners will be asking shoppers to donate “Super Foods” including whole grains, nut butters, and dried fruits in addition to the standard canned goods, such as vegetables, soups, and beans. These donations benefit the Hopelink Food Bank. Last year nearly 5,000 pounds of food were donated by Redmond’s generous community members.
Mayor John Marchione encourages all residents to take part in this drive. “A food drive brings the community together to show how much we care for those in need.”
As winter approaches and the resources of those with low incomes must stretch even further to cover increasing fuel, electricity and rental costs, an outpouring of community assistance is crucial to reduce hunger in our community. View the Mayor’s “Day of Concern” proclamation here
