  • Written by David B. Clark

North Creek High School (3613 191st Pl SE, Bothell, WA 98012) was proud to host their second annual TEDx event on Wednesday, June 6. While many are familiar with TED talks: the powerful, moving, and often progressive lecture-style presentations that most find via YouTube, TEDx events were established on a local and community level utilizing TED’s slogan of “ideas worth spreading.” These events are conducted by volunteers and are centered on the communities that host them. Several of North Creek High’s Jaguars took the stage among students from Inglemoor High School and even a student from the University of Washington to share their varying perspectives on the event’s theme, Worlds Beyond.

SURPRISE - Woodinville has a new mayor!

  • Written by David B. Clark

The Woodinville City Council met on June 5th.  Following the amended agenda approval and a presentation about the future of King County Metro on the Eastside by Grace Carlson, Eastside Service Planner, the council heard public comment. 

Local residents Phyllis Keller and Penelope Jupiter Zela both spoke out against the current Civic Campus proposal and urged the council to consider other options before finalizing the current plan.

Then Consent Calendar was approved and Business Items were addressed. It was then that Mayor Bernie Talmas made an announcement that shook some of the members of the council.  Talmas said, “Before we do our next agenda, I have two announcements to make. First, I will be stepping down as mayor in a moment, so we will have to select a new mayor. Second, I’ll be selling my house and moving outside the city boundary so under state law I will resign my council seat, which I will do reluctantly, as soon as we select a new mayor.” He continued, “It’s been a true privilege and honor to serve the citizens of Woodinville the last 8 ½ years, both on the council and as mayor. I’m proud of what we have accomplished in this time.”
