Tracy Andersen, third grade teacher at Meridian Park School, will be honored as the Dec. 1 Shoreline School District recipient of the Heroes in the Classroom award sponsored by the Seattle Seahawks and Symetra Financial.

Tracy was surprised with the award at a ceremony in the library at Meridian Park.

Symetra Heroes in the Classroom is a community program that recognizes Shoreline, Renton and Seattle teachers for outstanding leadership and instructional skills during the Seattle Seahawks season. Tracy is the seventh Shoreline teacher to be honored this season, joining Jennifer Etter (Shorecrest), Therese Russell (Brookside), Anne Marie Culver (Kellogg), Ali Airhart (Syre), Diana Dillard (Shorewood) and Kay Law (Ridgecrest).

Tracy is in her fourth year at Meridian Park and previously taught in the Renton and Highline School Districts. She will be recognized at the Seahawks home game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night and will receive a team jacket, two tickets to the game and on-field passes, and a $350 Office Max gift card for classroom supplies.

Tracy was nominated by a colleague, who wrote in part: “Students come to Ms. Andersen with all levels of need and somehow, in her magic kingdom, she manages to meet the unique needs of so many. Her lessons have clear purpose and are always focused on an academic standard and core learning need. Her lessons are lively, students are engaged and constantly pushed to participate and voice their ideas. Tracy’s students thrive because she believes in them and keeps the bar high.”

In addition to the awards before each home game, Symetra and the Seahawks will make a $10,000 donation to three participating schools following the 2011 season. Funds will be designated to support a specific student achievement program at each school.

Final Statement from Robin McClelland

By Robin McClelland

The election results have been certified, and it is clear that my opponent has prevailed in this very close race.

I remain grateful to my dedicated hard-working team, the hundreds of Shoreline people who helped finance my campaign, and the thousands of voters who believed I have the best qualifications for serving on our city council.

I am particularly proud that my team kept the promise requested by my opponent to run a clean campaign. At no time did we resort to smear tactics or distort his positions.

I will continue to lend my expertise, knowledge, and time to the compelling issues we face as we work to keep Shoreline the best place to live.

SCC students in Olympia Monday for budget rally

SCC students heading for Olympia

The Shoreline Community College Student Body Association organized a rally in the state Capitol in Olympia Monday at the opening of a special session of the state Legislature, November 28, 2011.

The Student Body Association (SBA) organized the rally in opposition to proposed budget cuts for higher education. More than 100 students were expected to attend the rally with bus transportation and other support provided by the SBA. The SBA had previously organized a Teach-In Day on campus for students to learn about the issues surrounding the potential reductions.

They were part of many groups which headed to the state capitol to protest the cuts anticipated in public education, higher education, and social services. Some of the protestors became unruly on Tuesday, November 29, and Sen. Ed Murray, chair of the Budget committee, shut down that day's budget hearing.

The primary part of the state budget that lawmakers have access to for cuts is the General Fund, which is almost all funding for education and social services. Most of the money in the state budgets is in "earmarked" funds such as transportation and salaries and can't be touched by lawmakers.

Lawmakers do have the ability to raise taxes, but recent initiatives have limited that avenue as well, and citizens have indicated their hatred of motor vehicle excise taxes.

The citizen group League of Education Voters has provided a tool for citizens to see how they might handle balancing the state budget, which currently has a projected short fall of $1.4 billion.
"Do you increase school class sizes? Eliminate a support program for 15,000 aged, blind and disabled Washingtonians? Increase the sales tax? Eliminate exemptions to the estate tax? Now you can answer to your own satisfaction. The budget calculator offers a list of possible cuts and new revenue sources, allowing you to mix and match your way to a balanced budget."
The Senate Democrats, which sent out the budget calculator in their newsletter, cautioned that,
"One thing to keep in mind - this tool provides options for increasing state revenues, which includes closing tax looholes. In order to do so, two-thirds - or 66 members - of the 98-members House and two-thirds - or 33 members - of the 49-members Senate would have to come to agreement in order for any of these options to pass."

Shoreline Council candidate Salomon extends lead over McClelland to 109 votes

By Evan Smith

Contributing Writer

Shoreline City Council candidate Jesse Salomon expanded his lead over opponent Robin McClelland to 109 votes Monday from his 104-vote lead of last week.

The count came a day before King County elections officials plan to certify results. The countywide voter turnout already had passed the expected final turnout of 52 percent. Officials had 200 uncounted ballots on hand from around the County at the close of business Monday.

Of the 18,116 ballots counted from the city of Shoreline, 7,520 had votes for Salomon, 7,411 had votes for McClelland, 54 had write-in votes and 3,131 left the position blank.

Salomon continued to be outside the range for a mandatory recount. With the two candidates having a total of 14,931 votes, a margin of 74 votes or fewer would put them within the 0.5 percent margin for a mandatory recount.

While Salomon has 50.18 percent of the vote to 49.46 percent for McClelland, incumbent Councilman Chris Eggen had 70.44 percent to 29.20 percent for challenger William Hubbell, and incumbent Councilwoman Doris McConnell had 60.84 percent to 38.74 percent for former Councilwoman Janet Way.

Salomon and McClelland were seeking the position that Councilman Terry Scott now holds.
Voter turnout in the City of Shoreline was 54.19 percent, compared to a countywide turnout of 52.05 percent and a statewide turnout of 52.87 percent.

Photo and weather - prettier than Doppler radar

Storm clouds over Puget Sound.  Photo by Lee Lageschulte.

Lee Lageschulte sent this photo she took from Innis Arden as a storm was brewing on Friday, November 18, 2011. WeatherWatcher Carl Dinse talks us through the picture, from a weather perspective.

Carl Dinse:

In the lower right side over the mountains is precipitation, probably in the form of snow falling out of the cloud and onto the ground below.  These clouds are called Cumulus clouds.  They are typically formed around here when there is an unstable air mass over Western Washington.  

Friday evening we had cold and unstable air over the Puget Sound.  Pockets of warmer moist air moving upward are called updrafts.   These updrafts eventually cool enough that the air in the updraft reaches its dew point, causing the water vapor in the air to condense.  As the updraft continues to pump more warmer, moist air into this cloud or cell, it grows bigger and heavier until eventually it starts precipitating, much like the clouds further in the distance in the lower right of this photograph.  

These are the types of clouds that can grow in to thunderstorms if they are not disrupted.  Westerly winds were too strong Friday night to allow these to develop big enough to produce a thunder shower.

CleanScapes Tip: Sharing as Reuse

Sharing as Reuse

End-of-year donations can take many forms, including giving away things you no longer use or need. Winter is a great time to take one last look in your garage, closets and cupboards for unwanted gently-used items and non-perishable foods.

Many non-profit organizations and businesses are collecting items for those less fortunate, from coats to cribs, bikes to toys, books to business suits, as well as electronics and food

This year the Shoreline PTA Council is collecting all kinds of items for teens and families in need. 

If you have something to donate, DonateSeattle can help connect Seattle-area donors with non-profit wish lists.

By sharing what you no longer want with those less fortunate, you are reducing, reusing and recycling while benefiting your community at the same time!

The Big Picture 

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency Americans generated approximately 243 million tons of waste in 2009. While 34% of this was recycled and composted, the rest – 161 million tons - was buried in landfills nationwide.

How much of what we throw away is actually garbage? Before throwing anything away, pause and think if your trash could be someone else’s treasure.
Reduce first. Reuse what you can, and then Recycle.
Reduce, Reuse and Win! 

Do you live in Seattle or Shoreline? Learn how you can help your community win a community project!

Shoreline's 2011/12 Neighborhood Rewards competition is underway! Is your neighborhood leading the way? Learn more
