By Andrea H. Reay
CEO/President
Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce

The Northwest’s history is one of innovators, artists, and entrepreneurs – dreaming big and working hard. The values that define our region have made it possible to create a thriving and competitive economy while figuring out the best path forward together.

That same spirit of collaboration helped forge the partnership that our Chamber has with the Seattle Metro Chamber. Last summer The Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce and the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce announced a new partnership in order to better and more strategically promote the economic and community development activities for our region. Both Chambers promote business advancement by helping to build and maintain a strong economic environment. Our Chamber is committed to working with the Seattle Metro Chamber and offering our members a broad range of membership benefits which will grow business development, services, and marketing opportunities for our region. We strive to expand the collaborative culture in our area because we know the benefits of working alongside one another. This partnership with Seattle Metro Chamber is an extension of that work and our commitment to best serve our members and our community. 

There is tremendous strength that comes from working together and working more efficiently. We were founded on the belief that we are better and stronger together. Increasing our collaborative efforts is a big win for our entire community, especially our small business members that will have access to opportunities and services within two broad service areas (Seattle and Seattle Southside). This partnership allows us to create even greater benefits for our small business members (15 or fewer employees) while greatly increasing our region’s exposure with amplified marketing, networking and promotional opportunities.

Please join us at an exciting event dedicated to the growth and success of small businesses – Elevate NW. From solopreneurs to companies that employ tens of thousands of people, we all play a role in building relationships that create an environment where small businesses can continue to flourish and innovate.  At this half-day conference you’ll hear inspirational stories and learn how businesses are improving workforce development, working smarter, and growing through new partnerships. Dig in to real-life examples of business success, meet peers, learn from game-changers, and gain insight on developing beneficial relationships with companies of all sizes.

From Advertiser the Port of Seattle:

For high school student Bryanna Bui, two consecutive summer internships at Pier 69 and Sea-Tac airport improved her confidence through writing projects, event planning and social media tasks.

“It made me feel important to do work that actually mattered, that would have an impact,” Bui says.

Now Bui is a freshman at University of Washington Bothell, as her internship helped guide her toward a major in media and communication, with a plan to work in public affairs.

Summer internships can open up possibilities regarding careers you may not have considered, and give you skills that prepare you for any real-world job. Here are seven things you might want to know about internships.

  1. You can land a paid internship, whether you’re a high school or college student. While pay rates depend upon job type, experience and your year in school, a paid internship provides hands-on, real-world experience that advances your career – and pays you to do so. Workplaces often look for both undergraduate and graduate students, and some may even accept certificate-seeking students. Generally, the ideal candidate for a college-level internship should have courses in a related field under their academic belt, although previous experience can count as well.
  2. The time to look for a summer internship is now. Applications for many summer internships are due in the spring. Many internships require students to apply using standard methods, by seeking openings and applying online – which is great practice for the “real world” of competitive applications. For example, the Port of Seattle asks for cover letters and résumés submitted by the end of April through the Port’s regular application process. Ideal candidates demonstrate that they’re self-starters who work well with others — they can complete projects, engage in community volunteerism and enjoy extracurricular activities.
  3. Summer internships help you explore careers. Whether as a new career possibility or to advance in your career, you’ll gain new knowledge, no matter your field of study. You don’t have to wait until graduation to get a “real job.” The Port of Seattle’s internship program is designed to provide qualified candidates with the chance to learn new skills in many different fields, and perform real work to jumpstart a career, particularly in aviation, maritime, construction management, engineering, environmental protection, public administration and many skilled trades.

    Pedro Reynaga interned at Fishermen’s Terminal for six weeks, followed by an additional two weeks at the Pier 69 office as part of the Asset Team. “I’d check off the boats to see if they were docked, perform clean up, patrol the facility and look for trash,” he says. “I definitely learned how to manage my time a little more and work in an office setting.”
  4. Internships teach the workplace skills you need. An internship gives you both soft and hard skills, valuable for building a résumé and acing future job interviews. Hiring managers are seeking soft skills like confidence, customer service, teamwork and communication along with pro qualities like punctuality, time management and cross-training. Hard skills might include using new software, technical tasks required by your field (such as mechanical work or math), and other everyday duties in a potential career. High school intern Hannah Ferguson spent a summer cutting through concrete, caulking sidewalks and watering trees, with the Port of Seattle’s marine maintenance department. “I don’t know if I’m ever going to be a laborer, but I have the knowledge that there is opportunity for me there,” Ferguson says.
  5. Surprises are not always bad. Internships can surprise you with options you may not have known existed. Perhaps you don’t even know yet which career is right for you; an internship can offer new perspectives that you might not encounter in day-to-day life.For Ronnie Estoque, a Port internship helped him consider a professional path. “The internship was important for me because I don’t have anyone in my family in professional jobs,” he says. “My family immigrated from the Philippines, and have manual labor jobs. They have no experience in an institution with a large influence on society. The internship was a good place to learn what it means to be in that setting.”
  6. It’s more than okay to ask questions — it’s practically expected. While you’re an intern, your supervisor and co-workers understand that you’re there to gain knowledge, and welcome your curiosity and openness to cross-training. “Don’t be afraid to ask questions and try something new,” Bui says.Intern Rosa Johnson worked as a public affairs college intern at the Port of Seattle, and emphasizes that an internship’s primary undertaking should be about on-the-job education. “Internships aren’t hiring you to know everything; they are hiring you to learn how to be better,” she says.
  7. Internships can help you get a job later. You’ll develop real-world connections who can act as references, link you with others via networking or perhaps even hire you for a permanent position. You’ll be a more prepared, competitive candidate for a job in either the public or private sector.

By Jack Mayne

The Des Moines City Council at their Thursday (April 12) meeting unanimously approved placing a resolution on its April 26th agenda objecting to a Highline School District proposal to change individual school boundaries.

The resolution by a citizen’s group called ‘ABC 4 Highline’ say their plan reduces distances to schools their children attend as well as keeping children in elementary schools together as they are prepared for high school.

Des Moines resident and longtime state Senator Karen Keiser said the recent legislative also approved a capital fund budget, which will provide $2 million to finance the replacement of the crumbling marina bulkhead and $500,000 for the Redondo reef project.

Seek school changes
Yvonne Nutting (pictured above) of ABC 4 Highline, which stands for Alternate Boundary Committee, is protesting the changes proposed by the Highline School District in the boundaries of schools within Des Moines. She said the ABC group has come up with an alternate feasible plan that “creates fewer changes across the entire district.”

Nutting said the boundary changes are still in the draft stages and not final and that her the ABC group presented a draft resolution for the Council to consider. She said the Normandy Park City Council approved the resolution at their meeting earlier in the week.

“Our plan reduces driving distances for parents and busing while keeping crossing major arterials and high traffic to a minimum, ensuring safety and continuity,” she said. “Our alternate plan not only helps keep elementary school students together … but 80 percent of the middle schools will feed into their dedicated high schools. This allows students to forge new groups of friends that will continue on through high school. Our plan also keeps City of Des Moines elementary school students in the City of Des Moines, allowing the to be eligible for City of Des Moines scholorships ….”

Earlier, Nutting’s committee said the Highline School District’s Capital Facilities Advisory Committee’s Proposal for Boundary Line Changes (CFAC) “has more changes than necessary.”

“While adding a fifth middle school is a difficult task, keeping communities together, throughout the district, is essential,” Nutting’s ABC group said. “The transitions to both middle and high school are already difficult. We want to give all our children the best opportunity for success. We believe our plan meets the guidelines and creates fewer changes across the entire district.

Keeps kids together
“Our alternative plan not only helps elementary schools stay together from K-12, but 80 percent of the middle schools will feed to the dedicated high school. This allows students to forge new groups of friends that will continue through high school. The Highline School Board has made it clear that the CFAC proposal is still a draft and not in its final state. Community feedback will be a critical component of the Board’s decision.”

Yvonne Nutting’s husband, Jeremy (pictured above), is a Des Moines Councilmember, and told the Council the proposed changes affect housing values but “also affects our children which is the most important thing of all.”

The Councilmember said there are scholarships that go unused now because scholarships from outside the city are not offered to students in the city even though they are attending Highline district facilities.

Not against district
“I am not supporting this because it’s my wife is up there presenting tonight, but I propose that we add this to the (April) 26th as a resolution that we adopt,” and that the resolution isn’t against the school district but against the committee change proposals that his Des Moines constituents oppose.

“This isn’t just for our kids,” said Nutting, “it is for the parent who can’t speak up for their kids.”

Deputy Mayor Vic Pennington agreed it was an important issue and the intent of the resolution is not opposing another government agency, but it is “to say we have a group of citizens that are concerned about this and we, as a Council, “are standing behind our citizens” as it has during other controversies such as the “effects of aviation on our city” and the development of the city’s marina.

“We can disagree with another government agency in what they are doing and certainly express our opinion and still get up the next day and shake their hand and go down and do business,” said Pennington. “I think this is a well thought out resolution and ABC Highline has done a lot of very good work.”

Councilmember Luisa Bangs said “beyond everything else, this is in support of the children” and that it makes sense to keep children in the community in which they live.

Keiser’s Olympia report
Washington State Sen. Karen Keiser said “we had a 60-day session and we got out on time and we balanced a budget and we have a property tax cut and we provided some significant new funding for both education and mental health” and those are “significant accomplishments that I was glad to take home.”

The session also approved a capital fund budget, which will provide $2 million to finance the replacement of the crumbling marina bulkhead and $500,000 for the Redondo boardwalk bridge project.

She said there will be “about $24 million” going into the Highline College building for health professions.

“They are remodeling one of their big old lecture halls into a real training center for all kinds of health professions.

The Legislature also approved about $4 million for Highline School District for new construction of school facilities, said Keiser.

On a statewide issue, the senator said they session provided $360 million which goes “in large part now for what we call supportive housing. If we can get people into stable housing, and then do some wrap around services, they will thrive, they will be stable, they will take their meds, they will be becoming productive citizens again. That is the road to recovery that we found to be the most efficient.”

Legislators also provided $300,000 for the airport environmental study and is asking cities around Sea-Tac airport to come up with another $300,000 for a full environmental, and health impact study and mitigation. She asked Des Moines, as she has other area cities, to help finance the issue.

Keiser said there needs to be continued research on potential other airport for cargo to be offloaded in the region, and potential addition of even more than present passenger service at Paine Field in Snohomish County. She, as others have, noted Sea-Tac is the fastest growing airport in the nation and has the smallest footprint for any major airport in the country.

Estimated damages are unknown at this time, as is the reason for the crash.

Here’s episode #4 of local activist/filmmaker Steve Edmiston’s ‘The Briefing’ series, where he takes on the Port of Seattle.

Edmiston calls this episode “What Went Wrong”:

By Jack Mayne

The Des Moines City Council was briefed at a study session Thursday (April 5) on city legislation being drafted to allow the expansion of new low-powered cellular networks that will provide cellular and data coverage to smaller geographic areas and that supplement the larger cell network.

The ordinance is already at 14 pages with more to come, said City Attorney Tim George, and the final proposal should come back in June to the Council for consideration.

The small cell antennas will be attached to existing utility poles and have a range from 10 meters to a few kilometers. They are used by mobile cell operators to extend service coverage and increase network capacity as well as the continual demand for increased speed.

Expert consultant hired
Des Moines City Attorney Tim George told the study session that the city has hired a consultant to guide the city’s upgrade in highly technical communications technology. He is Scott Snyder, a lawyer in the Seattle office of the law firm Ogden, Murphy, Wallace.

Since the use of city rights of way are under Des Moines Council control, the city’s franchising rules are “a very strong force” to determining where and how many such facility will be approved on city rights of way, Snyder said.

He told Council that while smart phones are used as telephones, 80 percent of what is transmitted through the smart phone is video. All of the new uses for the burgeoning smart phones is driving the need for increased network speed. “Macro sites,” the tall towers “that have been the backbone of the cellular industry … “are simply insufficient for a variety of reasons,” he said, so small cells are coming into use.

20 to 40 feet high
He showed a slide comparing an individual using a cell phone, the size of a new low power antenna on light and utility poles that are 20 feet to 40 feet high, and the giant main antennas now used in various locations that are 120 feet high. Snyder said there might be four small antennas affixed to a pole to give 360 degree service, or just one or two for line of sight service.

Snyder said Puget Sound Energy is an “important player” in the small cell expansion. At the initial comment period earlier, Julien Loh, local government affairs manager at Puget Sound Energy, said he was available to help with small cell technology.

The question comes up time and again around the region about how many different cell service companies can locate their antenna on a pole.

“Small cells are challenging from a local government standpoint,” said Snyder, noting he is helping Tim George craft an ordinance for Des Moines because the cells are controlled by state law and by federal law. So what the pole installations look like may be guided by the agencies outside Des Moines control.

Zero to 13,000 applications
He said in Seattle for years there were almost no applications for small cell tower installations, but this year they have had 13,000 applications. Verizon is one of the first to get into the small antenna installation action, but all of the cellular companies will be moving in the immediate future into small tower installations.

In addition, many utilities have been going underground in recent years but the small cell towers are “above ground tecnology” so poles may actually have to be installed in areas where they were removed.

“You can imagine that if you are in a neighborhood that paid for an LID (local improvement district) to underground and now you find the poles are going right back up to put another device in the air and limiting the impacts will be important,” Snyder said.

If the nation begins to allow driverless cars that are controlled by cellular service to operate, the gaps of the service must be addressed, said Snyder, and the city cannot preempt radio frequencies which is preempted by federal law.

Can’t limit technology
But he did emphasize that the city can’t limit technology, or to forbid a company from trying to close the gaps in its technology. There can be no gaps in services, Snyder said.

“The city can’t discriminate among service providers,” he said, and the city will have to allow all of them.

The city can require that coverage gaps use the “least intrusive means” of closing gaps and it can regulate new poles in the right of way and utility poles over 60 feet high and can charge a ground lease fee.

Created in 1989, the Wastemobile was the first traveling hazardous waste collection program in the nation. It is operated by the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program and goes throughout the county from later winter into fall.

Residents help protect the environment and public health by safely disposing of the hazardous materials and keeping them out of drains and landfills. Since first hitting the road, the Wastemobile has collected more than 17,000 tons of hazardous household waste from nearly 500,000 customers.

The Wastemobile also provides free reusable products to the public, such as oil-based paint, stain and primer, plus wood care and cleaning products. These products are subject to availability, and residents must sign a release form prior to receiving the materials.

More disposal solutions: Visit the permanent collection site
For south King County residents, the Auburn Wastemobile is a convenient option for household hazardous waste disposal. It is located in the northwest parking lot of The Outlet Collection, 1101 Outlet Collection Dr., SW, near Sports Authority. It operates every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Qualifying businesses can also use the no-cost disposal services. Call 206-263-8899 or find details at hazwastehelp.org.

Councilmember Dave Upthegrove (right) visits the Steven J. Underwood Memorial Park sports complex with Des Moines Parks & Recreation Director Patrice Thorell and Rick Scott, Recreation Manager, Des Moines Parks, Recreation and Senior Services.

Metropolitan King County Councilmember Dave Upthegrove announced that the county will be providing a $245,000 grant for park upgrades in Des Moines that will greet athletes of all ages this spring.

Upthegrove joined Des Moines Parks & Recreation Director Patrice Thorell to tour the Steven J. Underwood Memorial Park sports complex last week.

“Underwood Park is a community hub, and I’m excited for the upgrades that these County grants make possible,” said Upthegrove. “Kids and seniors alike will benefit from these improvements.”

Funded by the county’s Sports Facilities Improvements Grant, a Play for All area and loop trail will join the ball fields that are part of the Underwood Memorial Park. The play area and trail will increase access to outdoor play and exercise for young people in the neighborhood surrounding the park.

“Des Moines citizens are grateful to have a safe place for all children and families to gather and play at the park. This project that expands recreational resources in an underserved community would not have been possible without the county’s funding support,” said Thorell.

In addition to the park improvements, Des Moines also received a county Youth Physical Activity Programs Grant that will help support summer activities. The Summer Fun in the Sun program will focus on physical activities for youth living in the Pacific Ridge Neighborhood. The 5-days a week program would include assorted activities to keep kids active.

Upthegrove is from Des Moines and chairs the King County Council Budget and Fiscal Management Committee. He represents District Five, which includes Burien, Kent, Normandy Park, Renton, SeaTac, Tukwila, and unincorporated King County.
