Edmonds Police say "Leave the seals alone"

From the Edmonds Police Department

If you head down to the beach this time of year, you may come across one of these little guys. Baby seals are likely to be up on the beach.

They are cute and sure look cuddly, but do not touch them. In fact, don't mess with them at all. They may look abandoned or even in distress but that's usually not the case. Mommy seal is usually out hunting or somewhere nearby. When she realizes the little fella has had human contact, they often abandon them. As you can imagine, that doesn't end well for the baby seal.

If that isn't enough, it's also against the law. They are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

If you still feel the need to get up close, realize that marine mammals also carry diseases and bacteria that can be transferred to humans.

If you really think something is wrong with a seal on the beach, let us know 425-775-3000. We work with a group called Seal Sitters who check on them.

ICHS to hold second annual Lunar New Year 5k in Shoreline on Feb 26, 2017

International Community Health Services (ICHS) has announced plans to hold the second annual Lunar New Year 5k in Shoreline on Sunday, February 26, 2017.

Earlier this year, ICHS organized the first-ever Lunar New Year 5k at the Mercer Slough Nature Park in Bellevue to bring attention to its new Bellevue medical-dental clinic. The sold-out event attracted over 300 runners and walkers, raising over $21,000 to support uncompensated patient care.

The Lunar New Year is traditionally the most significant holiday for many Asian Pacific Islanders, marking the return of Spring and a special time for families to offer wishes for health and prosperity in the coming year. The Year of the Rooster begins on January 28, 2017.
“With the success and popularity of this new tradition we thought it would be nice to now turn the spotlight on our other new ICHS clinic in Shoreline in 2017,” ICHS Foundation Director Ron Chew said.

Chew pointed out that the Lunar New Year 5k will take place along the Interurban Trail in Shoreline.

“We’re encouraging folks to integrate this healthy, family-friendly winter activity into their celebration of the New Year,” Chew said.

The start of the 5k will be launched with a colorful lion dance performance. The event includes chip-timing, awards in different age categories and for best costumes, raffle prizes and post-race food and beverages.

ICHS was established in 1973 as a free storefront clinic in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District, providing bilingual health care to low-income residents, especially immigrant families and seniors. The agency now offers services through its seven locations, including new clinics in Bellevue and Shoreline. Last year, ICHS served over 25,500 unduplicated patients and provided interpretation in 53 languages.

Last year, ICHS provided $1.2 million in charity care. Proceeds from the Shoreline 5k will go toward supporting care for these patients in need.

The 37,000 sq. ft. ICHS Shoreline medical-dental clinic is located at 16549 Aurora Ave N. The new three-story facility opened in September 2014 as the first non-profit community health center in Shoreline. A pharmacy is scheduled to open inside the clinic later this year.

Early registration is $25. A free commemorative t-shirt will be included along with the registration fee. The event will be free to children under 13 and those over the age of 70. Seniors between the ages of 60 and 69 will receive a $5 discount.

The race website will open for registration in late July. For information about the event or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities, contact Christine Loredo at 206-788-3672.

SCC student newspaper receives top honor at the Pacific Northwest Association of Journalism Educators

The 2015-16 Ebbtide staff.
Photo credit: The Ebbtide on Instagram.

Shoreline Community College’s student-run newspaper, the Ebbtide, earned the First Place General Sweeps award in the 2015-16 Pacific Northwest Association of Journalism Educators (PNAJE) journalism competition. Awards were announced in June 2016.

The Ebbtide’s news staff won a total of 12 awards and 3 honorable mentions, amassing more points than any other student newspaper in the competition.

A First Place General Sweeps is one of the highest honors bestowed by the prestigious PNAJE organization, which was founded in 1970.

Two Ebbtide staffers also earned Individual Sweeps awards: Copy Editor Randy Hatfield (First Place for winning awards in feature reporting, headline writing, portrait photography, and photo illustration) and Photo Editor Aaron Meliza (Third Place for winning awards in photo essay, photo illustration, and sports photo).

Other winners include:
  • Political Reporter Gregor Elgee won First Place in General News Reporting and Third Place in Personality Profile 
  • Editor in Chief Aaron Berry won First Place in Feature Reporting 
  • Sports Editor Calvin Li won First Place in Personality Profile 
  • Former Design Director Brittany Ledyard won First Place in Commentary 
  • Former Design Director Stacey Jurss won First Place in Page Design 

This is the paper’s first time nabbing the coveted First Place General Sweeps. The paper’s adviser, Patti Jones, attributes this year’s success to the well-rounded and collaborative staff.

“This year’s team was a diverse mix of students, including a teen from Hong Kong, the mom of a 5 year old, and a Western Washington University graduate who travelled to China to teach English and realized he wanted to be a journalist,” Jones said. “He’s now aiming for a post-bacc program in journalism at the University of Washington. Somehow this mix of students really clicked, forming a supportive and multi-talented team.”

The completely student-funded and student-run paper swept the prize categories, winning in reporting, writing, photography, and design, among others. They even won for headline-writing on a profile of economics instructor Tim Payne: “From yen to euros: teacher makes cents of global economics.”

A mom and tiny baby were traveling east on NE 205th between 5th and 6th NE about 6am Tuesday morning when their van either collided with or swerved to avoid a collision with another vehicle.

The van rolled and ended up on its side with the front end pushed into the hillside.

Shoreline Police, State Troopers, and Snohomish Fire District #1 and Medics responded to the scene. State Patrol led the investigation while Shoreline handled traffic and stood by to help if needed.

Insurance Commissioner speaks to consumers in Shoreline about Medicare

By Kara Klotz

Attendees to a Medicare birthday event on Saturday morning got to hear Insurance Commissioner Kreidler talk about why Medicare is important and what SHIBA does for Washington consumers.

SHIBA stands for Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors. It’s a statewide network of nearly 400 highly trained volunteers who have been helping seniors and others understand their health insurance options for more than 35 years in Washington state.

Washington was the first state in the nation to establish a SHIBA program, before the federal government offered assistance in reaching out the consumers who are or are about to be enrolled in Medicare.

Medicare provides health coverage for nearly 45 million Americans who are age 65 and older, and for 7 million younger adults with permanent disabilities. Medicare has been in existence for 51 years, which really isn’t that long ago.

Commissioner Kreidler recalled for the attendees a time before Medicare existed when his grandmother had to move in with his parents because she was ill and didn’t have health coverage. Her medical bills prohibited her from living on her own. If Medicare had existed, it would have provided a lifeline for her to have access to the health care she needed.

SHIBA offers free, unbiased assistance with health care choices, including Medicare, to more than 100,000 Washington residents each year. You can find more SHIBA events around the state here.

Frank Workman on Sports: It was a banner year

By Frank Workman

It’s been a banner year for our local high school athletes, and with the school year coming to a close this week, now’s a good time for a look back at the year and remember a few favorite players, stories and moments.


Ronnie Gary in the Rotary Cup
Photo by Wayne Pridemore

The Rotary Cup Game featured all the drama you could ask for, as Shorecrest hung on for an exciting 14-12 win over Shorewood. The T-Birds got the ball back with just over two minutes remaining in the game, trailing 14-6. When QB Aaron Okamura completed a long touchdown pass to a streaking Ronnie Gary, SW was a two-point conversion away from tying the game. But SC’s Marvin Yong intercepted the pass intended for Gary in the end zone to preserve the win. Yong sat out the entire season before to injury, yet he attended every practice his junior year, wanting to be as ready as possible should he be challenged during his senior year. Yong rose to the occasion when it mattered the most, and the Rotary Cup returned to Shorecrest yet again.

Ronnie Gary came this close to thrilling an overflow crowd this spring at the Shoreline Invitational Track Meet. With the fans rhythmically clapping their hands to get his juices flowing for his try at 7-feet in the high jump, he got his shoulder, back, rump, legs and feet over the bar, only to knock it over with his trailing hand. There couldn’t have been but a handful of fans in attendance who’d ever seen somebody clear seven feet in the high jump. Sadly, none of us got to be added to that list.

Last fall, Shorewood’s Volleyball team brought home a fourth-place trophy, finishing off a dream season for coach Jenn Chartrand’s girls. Senior Delaney Hopen struck fear in the hearts of the opposition with serves as powerful as her smile is bright.

Sometimes when you watch an elite high school athlete, it’s apparent that he or she is ready to play at a higher level. Such has been the case for SC soccer star Sophia Viviano. She led her team to a second-place finish at State as a junior, and this past fall her team ‘settled’ for making it to the quarter-finals. It was breathtaking to watch her long legs inhale ground as she flew past defender after defender, game after game.


Saturday March 5 was the day that both SC basketball teams played for the 2A State Championship in Yakima. The sting of the boys heart-breaking one-point loss was soon erased by the girls' team bringing home the school’s first basketball championship trophy. Seeing tears of joy, instead of sadness, on the faces of the girls after the final game of the season was unique, almost unsettling, due to the team’s completely unexpected march to the championship.

Part of the reason the SC girls championship was so unexpected was due to the way they were beaten up by the excellent competition they faced in their league. Lynnwood returned speedy Jordyn Edwards and Mikayla Pivec from their State Championship team the year before. Glacier Peak likely would have gone to state if not for injuries. Edmonds-Woodway took home a sixth-place trophy at State, and Arlington made it all the way to the championship game this year. The Scots could only muster a single win in seven tries against this top-notch 3A competition, but when the playoffs came around, the 2A Scots feasted on the smaller schools. 


As unexpected as the Scots’ basketball championship was, their girls track team carried the heavy burden of high expectations all spring, having won State the previous year, primarily on the strong, fast legs of Wurrie Njadoe, who won four events as a junior. But win it all again they did, with much more of a team effort this year. 

Wurrie Njadoe
with State Medal
Two favorite moments from the track season - in an early season meet, Njadoe and Edwards squared off in the 200. Wurrie had a small lead at the top of the turn, but then her Roadrunner jet pack seemed to kick in and she outran her rival by five yards down the stretch.

It was magnificent to watch two of the state’s fastest going head-to-head. And the reports from the State meet of Miss Pivec, trailing by a mere inch with just one throw remaining in the javelin, coming though in the clutch, once again, to win the event on her final throw --- by 13 feet!

But my favorite moment of the entire year came on an obscure Friday night when the SC girls were playing at mighty Lynnwood. The Royals (royalty, indeed) were allowing only 35 points per game at that time, yet on this night the Scots put 61 on the board against the defending champs. Never mind that Lynnwood won the game by 25, the mere fact that the Scots could score nearly double the points usually allowed by Lynnwood was amazing.

The Scots were led this night by senior Uju Chibuogwu. Built like a cross between a brick outhouse and an old oak tree, Uju has deceptive quickness to go with her strength, and her long-range shooting skills were on full display for all to see this night at Lynnwood. Hitting three after three from behind the arc, in spite of being tightly guarded all night, she had the crowd oohing and aahing, even the Lynnwood fans.

With three seconds remaining on the clock, the Scots were inbounding the ball from mid-court, trailing by 25. Normally the ball would be passed in and held, letting time expire. But one of the Lynnwood students, sitting in the front row, rose to his feet, cupped his hands, and made a loud plea – “Pass it to #40”.

He wanted to see if Uju had one more impossible shot left.

So did we all.
THAT was my favorite moment of this banner year.

Volunteers wanted - strong backs, short hours, high job satisfaction

Long time market volunteers Emily, Janina and Drew

The Shoreline Farmers Market is thriving in its new location at Aurora Square. Use of the parking lot by Sears in the upper lot has allowed them to expand and offer more crafts, foods, and farmers.

The visibility and accessibility of the site attracts many more attendees, which in turn encourages more vendors to participate.

However, that means a lot more work to be done to set up and break down each Saturday, and help with activities. The Market relies on volunteers for these tasks, and the more the Market grows, the more volunteers are needed.

Available: 388 volunteer slots throughout the summer. The market is on Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. Prime times start at 3pm when the market breaks down, but you can sign up for any of the available spots, which includes greeters, assisting with kid activities, and ranges from an hour to all day.

Market Manager Teri Wheeler says that volunteers really like to sign up at the VolunteersSpot site.

"People like being able to choose the time and position they want and appreciate the auto email reminder a few days before their shift. I tell people that feel intimidated by technology that I am happy to help sign them up." 

Contact Teri by email if you have questions or would like help signing up.

And there's a perq - volunteers will get a $5 Market Buck to spend at the Market - including one of those spiffy $5 Farmers Market t-shirts!

Sound Transit Board votes to send major light rail expansion plan to November ballot

Sound Transit Board meeting at Union Station Thursday
Photo by Keith McGlashan

The Sound Transit Board capped 3-1/2 years of discussion and public input on Thursday by unanimously voting to send voters a final Sound Transit 3 ballot measure for consideration in November. The plan's proposals include completion of a regional light rail network as the area's population grows an estimated 800,000 by 2040.

The ST3 plan would build a total of 62 miles of light rail with stations serving 37 additional areas. Improvements introduced following public comment on a draft plan in April would speed up most of the extensions by two to five years.

Light rail to Everett via Paine Field would open five years earlier than the draft plan released by the Board in March. Extensions to downtown Redmond and Federal Way would be completed four years sooner, while the Ballard, West Seattle and Tacoma extensions would open three years sooner. The agency would work with partners to further improve timelines where feasible.

If approved by voters in November, ST3 would also build light rail between South Kirkland, Bellevue and Issaquah, while expediting the establishment of bus rapid transit service on I-405 from Lynnwood to Burien and on SR 522 (Bothell Way), with faster buses running every 10 minutes during peak commute hours.

The plan would expand the capacity of fast-growing Sounder commuter rail service linking Seattle, Tukwila, Kent, Auburn, Sumner, Puyallup, Tacoma and Lakewood, with extension of the line to reach Joint Base Lewis-McChord and DuPont. The Tacoma Link light rail line would extend from Hilltop to Tacoma Community College.

Among a number of other projects in the plan, early investments would include speeding up existing bus routes by enabling them to run on the shoulders of freeways where possible. Details of the plan are available at soundtransit3.org, including an interactive map.

The ST3 Plan's $53.8 billion in investments would be funded through new voter-approved sales, MVET and property taxes, with estimated additional $200 annual or $17 monthly costs for a typical adult in the Sound Transit District.

Three local blood drives - Richmond Beach and Lake Forest Park


Like blood banks all over the United States, Bloodworks Northwest responded to the Orlando crisis by sharing their stock.

Although our local blood supply has been very tight in recent weeks, when the appeal for blood came from Orlando we responded immediately, sending more than 70 units of blood components. 
That tragedy demonstrates to the community Bloodworks Northwest’s need for blood donors every day to maintain a strong blood supply to meet the needs of patients having surgery, organ transplants, receiving cancer treatment, or therapies for blood disorders and to be able to respond when a tragedy does occur. 

ALL BLOOD TYPES ARE NEEDED
  • O- and B- still at EMERGENCY levels, less than a one day supply 
  • O+ and A- at CRITICAL Levels, less than a two day supply 
  • A+ and AB Plasma at ALERT Levels, less than a three day supply 
We are asking donors to make an appointment to donate -- to help us rebuild our inventories, so we can always meet the needs of local patients. Will you please donate blood at one of these local events?

President Obama headed to the area Friday and Saturday

WSDOT says that you may want to factor in some extra travel time if you’ll be hitting the roads this weekend.


President Obama is scheduled to be in the Puget Sound area Friday afternoon, June 24, through Saturday, June 25.

As with all visits by heads of state, drivers can expect significant delays and closures on state highways and surrounding streets. The Secret Service doesn’t release information about travel plans much ahead of time so your best bet is to stay connected with local media and follow @wsdot_traffic on Twitter.

We’re limited in the amount of information we can put out but we’ll do the best we can to let drivers know what is closed and where to avoid.

Faber Construction to remodel Aldercrest elementary this summer

The end of school has meant the start of work by Faber Construction, which has contracts for four major school projects in Puget Sound.

One of those projects is the modernization of the Aldercrest Campus in the Shoreline School District, a $3.4 million project that will allow the District to reopen the elementary school in September.

Estimated construction dates are June 15 – September 15, 2016 for school renovation, sitework, and landscaping. Work includes but is not limited to modifications and reopening of elementary school.

Robot U presents… “I Want To Be A Robotic Engineer” (or “MAD SCIENTIST”)



Robot U will be holding a robotic and game design camp again this summer at Shoreline Community College, 16101 Greenwood Ave N, Shoreline 98133, from August 15th through the 19th. Camp starts at 9am and ends at 3:30pm.

For those who didn't attend last year, we take over a class room at the college and build robots and program video games, with breaks to go out to the soccer field and play games and eat our lunches. It's a great mixed aged camp spanning 1st graders up through 6th.

Before lunch, campers will work on a LEGO robotic project. Most will want to build elaborate LEGO MINDSTORMS robots, crazy WeDo (Jr) robots, or one of the new fantastic Power Functions creations that use a remote control.

Some will want to work with mentors to delve deeper into the programming and engineering concepts, but all will get to share their accomplishments with the camp.

In addition to a few short breaks, campers will take an hour lunch to go outside to eat their lunches and play different field games.

Parents: please pack campers a sack lunch, snacks and dress them to play. A water bottle is suggested.

After they come back in they will be learning how to create video games with Harvard’s Scratch and /or Microsoft’s Kodu. They will get to share their creations with the camp on the BIG SCREEN.

Camp fee $225. Register online.

Questions, contact Don@robot-u.com or 206-992-3550.

Book Review by Aarene Storms: All Our Yesterdays

All Our Yesterdays
by Cristin Terrill

Em awakens (again) in a prison cell, and can't stop thinking about the tiny drain in the floor. She makes a tool from a stolen spoon, and pries up the drain cover ... and finds, hidden inside, a list of fourteen items. Thirteen have already been crossed off.

At the bottom, in her own handwriting, Em reads the final line: You have to kill him.

In another place, in another time, Marina is quietly in love with her next-door-neighbor, James. James is gorgeous, brilliant ... and about to make a discovery that will change everything.

And everything is just about to become much, much worse.

All the loops and potential paradoxes of time travel, plus suspenseful chasing around in the dark, romance, betrayal, torture, and a very thin hope for redemption. This fast-moving narrative kept me up way past my bedtime.

Recommended for ages 12 to adult.


The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern

Letter to the Editor: Thanks to residents for support of Buddy Poppy drive

To the Editor

On behalf of Blackburn-Aurora VFW Post 3348, I would like to thank the residents of Shoreline for their generosity in our VFW Buddy Poppy drive over the Memorial Day weekend. Our Post, which is based in Shoreline, uses the donations collected to give to many veteran causes, including the Compass Center Veteran Housing in Shoreline, Fisher House at the VA Hospital, USO at Sea-Tac Airport, and the Washington Soldier's Home in Orting. Without Shoreline citizens' kindness and generosity, and the generosity of the stores involved, including Fred Meyer and Central Market, veterans would be negatively impacted more than they are. Thank you again.

Thom Fermstad, Quartermaster
Blackburn-Aurora VFW Post 3348

See something? Say something

Lake Forest Park police are delighted about two recent incidents where citizens reported suspicious behavior which led to arrests - and prevention of crimes.


In the first incident on June 10, a very alert LFP Citizen observed suspicious behavior coming from a male subject who was walking around her neighbor’s house. She called 911. Within a couple of minutes, two LFP officers arrived and located him a short distance away just as another citizen was calling to report the same person. Ultimately the subject was arrested on outstanding warrants and taken away. Even though this bad guy didn’t break into a house, there is little doubt that was his plan. Kudos to the citizens for making quick 911 calls and "most assuredly thwarting a burglary or two."

On Tuesday, officers responded to the report of a man burglarizing their garage. "The astute citizen gave us a GREAT description of the bad guy and officers located him a short distance away and took him into custody."

If you see something - "say something" really works! Thanks for calling us, keep up the great work and we’ll keep giving burglars courtesy rides to jail. 
See Something, Say Something really works.
