Washington releases statewide action plan to reduce older adult falls

More than 870 Washingtonians died in 2016 due to falls-related injuries

Friday the Washington State Department of Health and the Washington State Falls Prevention Coalition released a five-year, statewide action plan to reduce older adult falls – the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for adults ages 65 and older from 1999 to 2016.

“Falls are not a normal part of aging and most falls are preventable,” said Secretary of Health John Wiesman. 
“There are concrete actions folks can take to reduce risk for falls, and this action plan – which was led by and with communities and providers from across the state – offers some of the clearest guidance yet to help reduce falls-related hospitalizations and death.”

Gov. Jay Inslee also recognized the importance of addressing older adult falls, proclaiming September 22 Falls Prevention Awareness Day.

The action plan details the immense impact of falls in Washington and outlines strategies, desired outcomes and timelines for reducing falls.

The plan highlights six strategic directions for reducing risk of older adult falls:
  1. Strong and effective community partnerships
  2. Public awareness and education
  3. Prevention across the continuum of care
  4. Expanded reach and access to evidence-based programs and community screenings
  5. Effective interventions for high-risk and underserved older adults
  6. Improved safety in homes and communities
Six workgroups – which will include members of the public – will carry out the plan in concert with the department and the coalition. Learn more about the workgroups and get involved.

For people who do experience fall-related injuries, treatment at designated trauma rehabilitation facilities can improve daily function and mobility. These facilities provide 24-hour access to physiatrists and specialists in care coordination, neuropsychological, psychiatry, physical therapy, social work and speech therapy.

Three local students are National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

Saagar Mehta
The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recently announced that three seniors from Shorecrest and Shorewood High Schools have been selected as 2019 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists.

The Shoreline students selected for the prestigious honor are: Saagar Mehta (Shorewood), Mattea Holt (Shorecrest) and Gabe Vogel (Shorecrest).

Mattea Holt
Of the over 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test as juniors, only 16,000 become semifinalists.
The semifinalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.

Mehta, Holt and Vogel now have the opportunity to compete for Merit Scholarship awards by qualifying as a National Merit Finalist in February 2019.

Gabe Vogel
About 7,500 Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million will be awarded in this spring. 

To become a Finalist, a Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student's earlier qualifying test performance.

Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments and potential for success in rigorous college studies.

Friday, September 21, 2018

Students, teachers, administrators, school board
gather to break ground for the new school

Photos by Mike Remarcke

Parkwood Elementary students, staff and community gathered at the construction site of their soon-to-be new school for a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the beginning of the school construction project on Wednesday, September 19, 2018.

Principal Ann Torres speaks with members of the
school board standing by


Construction was a little further along than you would typically expect for a groundbreaking due to the originally scheduled event on August 20 being postponed because of poor air quality from wildfire smoke.

Superintendent Rebecca Miner, School Board Directors David Wilson,
Dick Nicholson, Heather Fralick, and Michael Jacobs


Superintendent Rebecca Miner, School Board President David Wilson and Parkwood Principal Ann Torres spoke about their excitement for the new learning space and appreciation for the support of the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park communities in approving the 2017 school bond. The new Parkwood will open in August 2019.

The kids were enthusiastic groundbreakers


After their remarks, all of the children in attendance were invited up to help break ground along with the school board. As you can see from the photos, they has a blast.

Everett Herald: Shoreline teams are creating buzz

Thursday's Everett Herald has an extended analysis of the Shoreline football teams by Cameron Van Til, complete with photos of players from both Shorewood and Shorecrest.

SHORELINE — There’s always plenty of excitement in the Shoreline community for the annual Rotary Cup football game between Shorecrest and Shorewood high schools.
But there’s certainly an added buzz surrounding this year’s rivalry clash. 
The two long-struggling programs each have claimed a signature victory over a perennial league power and are off to strong starts this season heading into Friday night’s contest at Shoreline Stadium. 
In fact, this is the first time since at least 2004 that both teams enter the Rotary Cup with winning records.

Shorewood looks to break 3 game Rotary Cup losing streak against crosstown rival Shorecrest

Photo by Lisa Hirohata

By Aaron Bert

Rivalry week! It doesn’t matter if you wear the Blue and Green of Shorewood or the Gold and Forest Green of Shorecrest. Rivalry week recognizes the spirit of competition and community togetherness which defines Shoreline.

On Friday, the Shorewood Thunderbirds square off against the Shorecrest Scots. This game marks the battle for the Rotary Cup and has been a staple of the regular season between the two schools since 1976.

As of late, the Scots have dominated the series - winning the last three meetings - but this year, it might be time to bring the cup back across Aurora Avenue to Shorewood. Shorecrest is riding high - coming into the game on a 3 game winning streak led by a very competent and capable offense. Shorewood enters the game at 2-1, having shown some real potential this season amongst a team determined to turnaround a streak of losing seasons.

Coach Brandon Torrey is coaching in his fourth Rotary Cup and stated, “Bringing the Rotary Cup back to Shorewood would be incredible for our kids, school, and community. Our focus is on executing at a high level and playing for one another.”

Coach Torrey has been getting the team fired up this week - emphasizing the need for togetherness and focusing on never giving up the fight.

As for members of the senior class - who have never hoisted the Rotary Cup in victory at the final whistle, they feel their time is now and they are due for the win.

Kick-off is at 7pm at Shoreline District Stadium - come early for a good seat and get ready for the always entertaining battle of the dueling drum lines at halftime.
