Redmond Elementary School students are extending a helping hand to their peers abroad.
State Sen. Rodney Tom, along with Reps. Deb Eddy and Ross Hunter from the 48th District spent Saturday afternoon in Redmond answering questions and discussing the challenges that loom ahead — with the state budget being the hot — and most concerning — topic.
The skin is the largest organ of the body; it offers protection from the elements and helps maintain a healthy body.
Because it has such an important job, Sabrina Tarditi said it is important to take care of your skin. As the owner of Calming Waters Skin Care at 17090 Avondale Way in Redmond (inside Jones Family Chiropractic), the Kirkland resident works as an esthetician and makes a living showing others how to do the same.
“Skin care has come a long way and is much more advanced,” she said, referring to when she first began her career more than 20 years ago. “There’s just so much more you can do. Skin care is just so advanced and it’s so complex.”
Rachel Ray watch out, here comes Rachel Raines.
At age 9, the fourth-grader from Horrace Mann Elementary School in Redmond already knows her way around the kitchen. And on Wednesday afternoon, she — along with 19 other fourth- and fifth-graders in Lake Washington School District (LWSD) — showed off her cooking skills at the 4th Annual Sodexo Future Chefs: Healthy Snack Challenge.
Redmond police officer Maureen Messmer graduated from the police academy on Jan. 14. Less than a week later, she had to call upon her newly acquired knowledge to save a life — a very near and dear one.
Less than a week later, she had to call upon her newly acquired knowledge to save a life — a very near and dear one.
Off duty on Jan. 20, Messmer had just walked into her parents’ home to find her mother in a panic because her father was unconscious. The new officer’s training immediately kicked in as she called 911, which she had learned some people forget to do in an emergency situation.
“I have to call 911 first,” Messmer said, referring to her initial thought.
Beginning March 4, Evergreen Family Theatre (EFT) will prove love can overcome anything, even stupidity.
For its seventh main stage production, the theater, which is located at RedWood Family Church, 11500 Redmond-Woodinville Rd, is taking on Neil Simon’s romantic comedy, “Fools,” a romantic comedy set in Kulyenchikov, Ukraine during the late 19th century. The play is the story of schoolteacher Leon Tolchinsky, who comes into town to teach the local doctor’s daughter and falls in love with her, only to learn that all of Kulyenchikov is the victim of a 200-year-old curse of stupidity.
“This (play is) a lot of fun,” said director Marsha Stueckle. “This one is totally goofy … a goofy, whimsical show.”
Norman Christensen lost his roadside home a few months ago when his car broke down.
So the 54-year-old man sold his car/home for scrap and took to the homeless circuit, moving from shelter to shelter on the Eastside.
For the last month, Christensen has been spending most of his nights at a temporary overnight shelter at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center in downtown Redmond. The shelter opened Jan. 15 and is set to close Sunday morning.
What began in 1976 in Bothell for Bob Lovett ended in Redmond earlier this week.
He started out as a firefighter with the Bothell Fire Department before moving to Redmond a few years later. Lovett, who became the Redmond fire in September 1990, stayed with the city until Tuesday, when he retired after a 35-year career.
“I had no inkling to go into fire service, but I was looking for a job,” Lovett said. “I was definitely thinking I might end up doing something else. I never thought it was a career.”
From its humble beginning in 1936, Cadman Incorporated has gone from a company supplying concrete aggregates to local farmers, timber crews and the occasional road project to a well-known name in the industry.
Despite having grown to an international level, Cadman has maintained its strong ties to its Redmond roots. Cadman human resources supervisor Gwyn Hart said the company provided the concrete for many local projects such as the Nintendo and Microsoft Corporation campuses — adding that Cadman poured nearly all the concrete for the latter. This was largely due to the company’s location in town, which is not necessarily the case these days.
Based on yesterday’s King County special election results, things are looking good for Lake Washington School District (LWSD). As of Tuesday night, the district’s Capital Projects Levy received a 59.33 percent yes vote and 40.67 percent no vote.
Congressman Dave Reichert, who represents the Eighth District, was honored on Monday by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) with the Manufacturing Legislative Excellence Award.
The award, which was presented to Reichert at Terex Corporation/Genie Industries, in Redmond, recognizes members of Congress whose voting records are 70 percent or more on key legislation that will help manufacturers create jobs and compete in the ever-growing global economy.
Connor, Kamrin and Corbin Markus received a special surprise last Friday at Rosa Park Elementary School’s weekly assembly.
The three siblings were called to the front to tell their classmates about their father Christopher Markus, a staff sergeant for the U.S. Air Force, and their upcoming move to Germany once his tour in South Korea is completed. The youngsters discussed how their father would be returning later this month — but then came the big surprise.
Dad showed up minutes later at the Redmond school as Dad and kids embraced in front of the student body.
Overseeing 23 developed parks consisting of more than 1,000 acres and 17 miles of developed trails is not an easy job. Throw in eight undeveloped parks covering almost 300 acres and another nine underdeveloped trails and the task is more than a little daunting.
For Teresa Kluver, however, it’s just another day at the office as parks operations supervisor for the City of Redmond’s Parks & Recreation department.
Finding the right early education program to meet a child’s specific needs is not easy.
Mary Oemig’s son was particularly passionate and advanced in certain areas and not so much in others, so she spent a year looking at private schools, specialty schools and everything in between, but nothing seemed to work for her son, who is now 5 years old.
