Redmond at the end of the ice age: What the Bear Creek Site tells us
Redmond Neighborhood Blog - Saturday, September 12th REDMOND AT THE END OF THE ICE AGE: WHAT THE BEAR CREEK SITE TELLS USRobert Kopperl, Ph.D.SWCA Environmental ConsultantsArchaeological research near the mouth of Redmond's Bear Creek has shed new light on early Native American lifeways in the Puget Sound Lowlands at the end of the Ice Age and has led to national attention.  Since 2008, SWCA Environmental Consultants has been conducting investigations for the City of Redmond as part of a salmon habitat restoration project. The stone tools that have been found at the site tell us a great deal about the early inhabitants of the area, what their technology was like, and how they made a living over 10,000 years ago.  Other more subtle clues help paint a picture of the landscape on which these people lived. In the first public presentation of information since the big excavation in 2013, archeologist Dr. Robert Kopperl will share a wealth of new information. He is speaking courtesy of the City of Redmond this coming Saturday morning.Enjoy a relaxing morning at the Redmond Historical Society Saturday Speaker Series, a monthly program that features eight speakers addressing topics of local, state and Pacific Northwest historical interest. The series is held 10:30am - noon at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center, 16600 NE 80th St., Redmond, WA.   Doors open at 10:00 am.  $5 suggested donation for non-members.

LETTER: Inflection Point of Growth in Redmond? By Bart Phillips, CEO of Redmond One
Redmond Neighborhood Blog - Inflection Point?Whether you call it a tipping point or inflection point, it is my belief that when we look back in 15-20 years we will see that we are at one of those moments in time in the transformation of Redmond's two downtowns.  It's being driven by multifamily residential development.I will admit that as an outsider 18 months ago that I was a little taken back by the sheer number of new multifamily developments in downtown.  The City reports that in the last several years almost 1,000 units have been built in downtown and Overlake.  Another 1,153 units are under construction.  And the reported vacancy rate is in the low single digits despite all of the new product on the market.  What I find even more stunning is that there are another 1,575 units in permitting.  Read More >> So what is the inflection point?  Density levels in the downtowns are attracting new services and businesses wanting to tap this younger, affluent and ethnically diverse market.  Over the last six months alone OneRedmond has spoken to any number of prospective businesses opening hotels, restaurants, boutiques and fitness related ventures.   And this is on top of early pioneers in this new market such as Super Jock and Jill, Prime and Tipsy Cow.  I have personally seen the change in that I live in downtown. People are walking the streets and the restaurants are full.  It will do nothing but build over the years.Some of this is simply a result of the economic cycle but I believe it is mostly the result of the City's intentional planning to increase the density and make strategic infrastructure investments in downtown and Overlake.  Redmond is a rock solid suburban city today.  My prediction is that in 15 years its will be so much more and we are currently standing at that moment in time when the switch was flipped.  Follow Redmond Blog on Facebook: www.facebook.com/redmondblogger Read more...

Lake Washington School District aims to reduce and manage concussions among high school athletes
Redmond Neighborhood Blog - Efforts aimed at reducing, better managing concussions in football and other sportsRedmond, Wash. - This fall, Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is implementing a comprehensive program aimed at reducing and managing concussions among high school athletes in the district. This program has several parts: "Heads Up" concussion training for all football coaches; neurocognitive testing that can help determine if a student-athlete is concussed; and replacing all football helmets that have lower protection ratings."As doctors and scientists have learned more about the effects of concussions, it has become clear that we need to put more protections in place for students most at risk," noted Dr. Traci Pierce, superintendent. "We want to approach this issue from a prevention standpoint first as well as appropriately managing concussions that do happen."  Read More >>Focus on footballWhile concussions can happen in all sports, football student-athletes are at higher risk for concussion than most other sports. Several of the district's efforts will focus on football.Coach training: Beginning this year, the Washington Interscholastic Athletic Association will require concussion management training for football head coaches, and all coaches starting in the 2016-17 school year. LWSD trained all high school football coaches on August 17. The "Heads Up" training was developed by USA Football.Five-star football helmets: Research by Virginia Tech has revealed differences in concussion risk depending on the type of helmet. Virginia Tech developed a rating system to differentiate helmets, ranging from one star, or least protective, to five star, or most protective. The district is removing all helmets rated less than four stars from inventory and have purchased five-star helmets to replace them. All new helmets purchased in the future will be five-star helmets.Parent communication: As part of the "Heads Up" training, the district will hold meetings for parents of football student-athletes. Parents will learn more about concussions and what they can do in the event their student suffers a concussion. Schools will also communicate with parents of students in other sports about concussions through the school year.Testing for the futureLWSD is also instituting a program of neurocognitive testing of student-athletes, using the ImPACT program. This test establishes a personal baseline assessment of student-athlete neurocognitive functioning. In the event of a concussion, the student is retested to compare results. This information helps determine if concussion has occurred without having to rely solely on the student to report systems or on observing symptoms.Testing will begin in the fall with football and girls' soccer, in conjunction with Children's Hospital. Other sports will be added as the year goes on. The goal is eventually to test all student-athletes in the district. Follow Redmond Blog on Facebook: ww Read more...
