Crews hope to finish Brier Road work this week
MLT News: Community News for Moutlake Terrace - Crews are hoping to put the finishing touches to a pavement overlay on Brier Road this week, but the project may be delayed in wrapping up if wet weather continues. Work began last week on Brier Road between 228th Street Southwest and the southern boundary of Brier at approximately 243rd Place Southwest when crews ground away the old top layer of the roadway. A new road surface has been laid; striping of the roadway will occur this week if work crews get dry weather. In addition to the road resurfacing, the project includes construction of 19 ADA-approved sidewalk ramps. The $443,389 project is being paid for by a grant from the State of Washington Transportation Improvement Board The post Crews hope to finish Brier Road work this week appeared first on MLTnews.com.

Diana White elected new president of Edmonds School Board; student honored for service
MLT News: Community News for Moutlake Terrace - Alderwood Middle student Mia Nguyen, center, and principal Erin Murphy listen as a representative of Prudential Financial announces her as the winner of one of two Prudential Spirit of Community Awards given statewide. (Photo by Natalie Covate) The Edmonds School Board Tuesday night elected Diana White as president, a step necessitated by the recent resignation of Boardmember Susan Philips, who held that position. The board also elected Kory DeMun as the legislative representative and Gary Noble as the board's vice president. New School Board President Diana White "It's not something we really wanted to do, but we have to do it and we will keep her [Phillips] in our hearts," White said before the election. The board also celebrated Mia Nguyen, an eighth grader at Alderwood Middle School, for having received one of two Prudential Spirit of Community Awards given in Washington state for making and selling bows in honor of one of her friends being treated for leukemia at Seattle Children's Hospital. Nguyen put her own money into the project to purchase materials, which were used to make more than 100 bows that raised about $300 for Seattle Children's Hospital. "It's a joy to work with Mia," said Erin Murphy, principal of Alderwood Middle School. "A number of students did apply but it was really quite obvious that there was a high quality of compassion and service in the work that Mia did." Nguyen will receive $1,000, an engraved medallion and a May trip to Washington D.C., where she will join the top two honorees from each of the other states and the District of Columbia for four days of national recognition events. During the trip, 10 students will be named America's top youth volunteers of 2014. Also during the meeting, Scriber Lake High School teacher Chris Brown asked the board to support the Interdisciplinary Studies Environmental Program (INSTEP), which addresses what students should know to both appreciate and be safe in nearby outdoor areas. They use metaphors in perceived-risk environments, such as high ropes courses, to help students. "This is hugely powerful stuff and extremely safe," Brown said, noting the program's 23-year spotless record for high ropes course safety. But this year, risk management has deemed many of INSTEP's activities, such as high ropes courses, unsafe. Brown asked the board for an exception to the high ropes course rule in this case because of the impact it can have on students and the safety they have demonstrated thus far. Superintendent Nick Brossoit said he was unaware of the new policy and that he would look into it. Jon Gore of D.A. Davidson & Co. spoke to the board about the approaching bond sale, which 63.2 percent of voters approved in February. D.A. Davidson & Co. is working for the district to structure financing so that the bond sale meets investment goals and also stays within voter expectations. Most of this can be controlled with timing the sale according to trends seen within the bond market, Read more...

Baseball: Top-ranked T-Birds edge Hawks in 10 innings
MLT News: Community News for Moutlake Terrace - The Shorewood T-Birds have dominated on the baseball diamond during the first half of the 2014 season, scoring an average of almost 8.5 runs per game while holding their opposition to just one run each outing. Their 11-0 record leading into Tuesday's match-up with the Mountlake Terrace Hawks had pushed them to the top spot in a state poll of 3A prep baseball clubs. Despite the challenge facing them, the Hawks put up a strong fight against Shorewood, holding the T-Birds to just two runs and six hits in seven innings. But the T-Birds eventually prevailed 3-2 in 10 innings at Meridian Park. After Shorewood's Max Wagner and Steffen Torgensen drilled one-out singles, teammate Kory Longaker launched a deep drive in the left field gap for a walk-off double to end the game. The three hits were given up by Hawk Jason Shevenko in relief of starter Dominic DeMiero, who had Shorewood on its heels during the previous nine innings. While Shevenko was saddled with the loss, it was his offensive efforts that had given the Hawks an early lead. Shevenko batted 3-for-5 with two doubles and the only Terrace RBI in the game. Torgersen came in to relieve T-Bird starter Sam Boone in the eighth inning and retired nine of the 10 Hawks he faced in the extra frames to earn the win. The two teams go at it again on Wednesday, April 16, in the second of their three-game series. Game two will be at Mountlake Terrace High School; first pitch is slated for 4 p.m. The series will close on Friday, April 18, with a 7 p.m. game at Meridian Park Field in Shoreline.

Arts Around Terrace: Official state poetry event at MLT Library Saturday
MLT News: Community News for Moutlake Terrace - April is National Poetry Month. Join Poet Laureate Elizabeth Austen as she officially opens inaugural poetry event — 'Poem in Your Pocket'– at the Mountlake Terrace Library this Saturday, April 19. Organized by Mountlake Terrace Library staff Kwami Nyamidie, Mountlake Terrace resident Ann Hursey and Mountlake Terrace High School alum Christina Montilla, our very own Mountlake Terrace Library will be the scene for one of the State's official inaugural poetry events during National Poetry Month, as proclaimed by Governor Jay Inslee. The Saturday event will be officially opened by Washington State's Poet Laureate Elizabeth Austen. When asked by the Mountlake Terrace community to get involved, Austen was honored to foster the awareness, appreciation and engagement of poetry. Serving a two-year term, two poet laureates have preceded Austen, including Sam Green and Kathleen Flenniken. You can learn more about the poet laureate program, sponsored by Humanities Washington and the Washington State Arts Commission, here. Austen has been a contributing producer for such segments as 'Morning Edition' and 'For the Record' on KUOW FM 94.9 and has written a full-length poetry book, 'Every Dress Has a Decision,' and two poetry chapbooks entitled, 'The Girl Who Goes Alone' and 'Where Currents Meet' The latter is one of four winners of the Toadlily Press chapbook award and part of the quartet 'Sightline.' (For the uninitiated, a chapbook usually refers to a book of poetry, up to about 40 pages long.) You can learn more about Austen here. Community members of all ages are encouraged to not only come and enjoy the readings, but to also participate in a favorite poetry reading of their own during an open mic segment of the program. Mountlake Terrace High School English teacher Peter Breysse will also be involved in the day's events, by involving his current students. MTHS graduate Montilla has been particularly involved in this segment of the program, as Breysse was one of her favorite teachers. Both Hursey and Montilla were involved in the Artist Trust EDGE Professional Development for Literary Arts, and Hursey and Breysse met at the University of Washington poetry certification program in 2001. It took many people to bring this event to fruition and organizers hope that it will be a catalyst for many more literary events to come to Mountlake Terrace and the north end. You can learn more about Artist Trust here. Poem in Your Pocket kicks off at 2 p.m. at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Ave. W., with opening readings, open mic participation and a reception to follow.

Hawks baseball, softball seek wins, tourney berths in second half of season
MLT News: Community News for Moutlake Terrace - As the Mountlake Terrace High School baseball and softball teams head into the second half of the 2014 season, both will be looking to solidify postseason tournament berths. The quests to finish the regular season strong and secure district tournament qualifications begin on Tuesday, Apr. 15, when the baseball team travels to take on undefeated Shorewood, while the softball squad hosts last place Shorecrest. The Hawk boys have had an up-and-down baseball season, winning just four of their first nine games of the year. But Coach Andrew Waters believes his squad is better than their record indicates. "We've had an opportunity to win every game we've played," Waters said. "We're 4-5 and it's in our power to play better." The 3A Wesco League is loaded with good teams, starting at the top with the state's #1 ranked 3A squad, the 11-0 Shorewood T-Birds. Other strong schools include 7-1 Marysville-Pilchuck, 7-2 Meadowdale and 8-3 Stanwood.  Yet Waters thinks Terrace can stand toe-to-toe against any of their Wesco League competitors. "We're capable of competing with everyone in Wesco," he stated. "I think the kids know that, and we just need to play better." The Hawks jump into the second half of the season with their biggest test of the year, a three-game series against #1 Shorewood. The teams battle on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. at Meridian Park in Shoreline, Wednesday, Apr. 16, at 4:00 p.m. at Mountlake Terrace High School, then back at Meridian Park on Friday, Apr. 18, for a 7:00 p.m. showdown. Waters' knows that the Shorewood series could be a struggle for his Hawks. "We're aware of who Shorewood is, and they've been a rival of ours all these years," he explained. "We respect them; they're good and it's going to be tough. We're going to have to play our best baseball to take a game from them, let along talk about the series. We're just going to try to focus on Tuesday and see how the week goes." Terrace currently sits in the #7 seed of the eight-team 3A District 1 Tournament that will take place in early May, but with three-game series against Shorewood and Meadowdale over the next two weeks, holding on to that spot certainly isn't a guarantee. While the Terrace baseball team will be fighting to stay qualified for district play, the girls softball team is looking to just get in at this point. Their current 0-2 Wesco League record isn't good enough right now for even the last spot in the tournament. But Coach Shannon Rasmussen isn't hitting the panic button just yet, as injuries and scheduling conflicts have prevented her from fielding her entire starting line-up for most of the team's early season games. The squad has struggled at the plate this season, scoring more than five runs only twice in their nine games. Rasmussen hopes having her full roster will help alleviate the Hawk's lack of run production so far. "Now that we have everybody back, we'll hopefully all come together (and) help our pitchers out a little bit more," she said. Terrace has a chance Read more...
