Support professionals in the Northshore School District, such as paraeducators, school assistants and nurses, are asking for higher pay and more full-time positions to fix what they say is a case of institutional gender bias. But at the moment, they’re waiting for the state budget to be finalized to determine what funds are available, said Kraig Peck, the head negotiator for the Northshore Education Support Professional Association (NESPA).
As part of a national study, researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey are testing water quality at 88 streams throughout the Pacific Northwest. Last week, they came to Bear Creek at Union Hill Road in Redmond, where they took samples of fish, aquatic insects, algae and streambed sediments.

The Cottage Lake Cluster of Churches was formed in 1994. Scott Kimball from Wooden Cross Lutheran Church met with the new church cluster and proposed that they embark on a community service project of blood drives to be hosted at the various community churches.
The first Cottage Lake Community Blood Drive was held on June 9, 1995 at Wooden Cross Lutheran Church. Participating congregations now include Atammayatarama Buddhist Monastery, Bear Creek United Methodist Church, Blessed Teresa Catholic Church, Cottage Lake Presbyterian Church, Kol Ami Jewish Congregation, LDS Cottage Lake, Northshore United Church of Christ, Wooden Cross Lutheran Church and Woodinville Unitarian Universalist Church. Over the past 20 years, the Interfaith Group has conducted a total of 113 drives with 6,879 registered donors. The Community Blood Drive will celebrate its 20th anniversary on Tuesday, July 7 with a Blood Drive at Wooden Cross — the same location as the first drive in 1995. Come, be a blood donor and celebrate with us! The Blood Drive will be 1 - 7 p.m. at 17401 198th Avenue NE, Woodinville (the corner of 198th and Woodinville-Duvall Road.)
