Page 2 Sammamish Valley News Wed Aug. 9, 1972 The wife of a young Redmond physician, Mrs. Betty Lou Kapelowitz, instigated a new "Doctors on Call" service- recently. Dealing as a "sort of" broker, the servicehas signed up about a dozen physicians to fill in on weekends for their colleagues who wish a week- end off. DOC bargains between gen- eral practitioners and inter- nists, primarily, according to Mrs. Kapelowitz. Accord- ingly, volunteers are matched with those who want to take off for the weekend. Service fees are compar- atively nominal when one looks at those charged for a similar service elsewhere. Local basic rate comes to $45 per doctor and a second physician in the group who also wants the service is charged$22.50. The then doctor-on-call is paid through fees received from the patients he treats and the fees are standard, Mrs. Kapelowitz said. Roughly half of the sub stitute doctors' cases consist of advising or prescribing by telephone, which entails no fee, she added. The substitutes, who include some who have completed res- idency training, but not yet opened their practices, must have Washington physician's licenses. The list also includes doctors who are now taking training on extended fellow- ships, those whohave recently completed Army medical ser- vice and some who formerly practiced, but are now in other branches of medicine. El erly to surveye The Washington StateCoun- cll on Aging will sponsor a survey during the remainder of July and through August to solicit the views of KingCoun- ty elderly in such areas as quality of housing, economic well-being and quality of health care in the county. The survey is being con- ducted by Extended Services for the Elderly in cooperation with the Seattle/King County Council on Aging, a United Way agency. Information gathered in the survey will be useful to groups or organiza- tions applying for federal funds under Title III, IV and VII of the Older Americans Act. irew Free firewood for home use is now available to Redmond residents at the Jonathan E. Hartman Park, announced John Couch, park director. Construction at the park site started this past week and Couch has asked the con- struction contractor to stock- pile firewood for residents. Sun Up Construction re- ceived the contract forthede- velopment project. A permit must be obtained at the park department office before cutting the wood. Other guidlines for cutting are: only take wood from stock pile; cut after 5 p.m. weekdays and on Saturday and Sundays; no com- mercial cutting; approxi- mately two cords of wood per family; permit must be onper- son when cutting. There is no charge for the permit. The park department office is located at the Redmond City Hail. • i A Kirkland woman, Mrs. Jewell Crouch, 76, is thevery first to have apermanent arti- ficial heart pacemaker im- planted at the new Evergreen General Hospitalwhich opened Mar. 8. An artificial pacemaker, according to the American Heart Association, works the same as nature's pacemaker. It is a small unit that uses batteries to produce the im- pulses needed to flow through its tiny wires into the heart. Installation of the pace- maker becomes necessary when something happens to prevent the normal, natural electrical impulses from traveling along as they should, County animal control in force Rural King County resi- dents are now getting long overdue animal control ser- vice says Bill Gerard, mana- ger of the newly formed King County Animal Control Divi- sion. The Animal Control Division is now in full operation and is strictly enforcing the ani- mal licensing ordinances. A conservative estimate places between 60 to 80,000 dogs and an equal amount of cats still unlicensed in King County. Animal control vehicles are now being operated In the un- incorporated areas of King County in a rigorous drive to pick up all stray and unli- censed animals. All animals taken to the Seattle King County Animal Shelter, 601 Elliott West can be redeemed for $10 plus the price of a license. Animals at the shelter are also avail- able for adoption. Bill Gerard further stated that there has been somecon- fusion concerning the licens- ing of pets which are being confined to the house or in the yard. King County Code states that "all dogs and cats harbored, kept, or maintained in King County shall be licensed an- nually." Persons refusing to license their animals are in violation and will be served a cita- tion by the Animal Control Division and taken to court for failure to comply with the ordinance, Gerard said. For further licensing infor- mation call 344-5209. ers I love a parade Editor SYNews Friday the town of Redmond had a bodacious parade cele- brating the opening of the bridge. The scheduled start was 3 p.m. - the speakers (about 101 in number) had gone over their speaches the night before and a good three quarters of an hour later the ribbon was cut. The temperature was 90 and humid. The local undertaker showed up late and almost missed the cutting as well as being introduced. I was dressed as an Indian prospector (because I had an Indian wig and had borrowed a complete rig for my pet borro). Bosco behaved like an angel until some kid driving a small vintage car ran into Bosco. Witnesses say the kid was waving to some friends along the curb. This made Bosco take off at a bodacious speed leaving me with rope burns and great indignation - the pack saddle boxes had knocked me down somewhat. Someone gave me abeer and an urchin called Debby caught the borro. Debby kept saying, "If you dieMr. Wallace, would you let me have Bosco?" Really made me feel good all over, P.K. Wallace 15671 NE ll6th, Redmond si $1one en July 30, 1972 Mayor Bud Young Council, City of Redmond Redmond, Washington Re: The Group Health Affair Dear Sirs: It is with utter dismay that from six hundred miles, I read in the Sammamish Valley News of the first step in the destruction of planning in the City of Redmond. My objection to this circum- vention of the intent of the land use plan is not only as a pro- perty owner, but as a former citizen of Redmond who was vitally interested and active in developing a planning de- partment which would guide the council in orderly land use planning. At no time did we realize that we left a "loop hole" for the planning department, mayor and some members of the council to allow a com- mercial enterprise to be de- veloped in residential zoning. This enterprise will gen- erate more noise, traffic problems and confusion than a dozen gas stations, and I can well remember the attitude of some of the councilmen who voted against gas stations in residential zoning, but are now voting for something less suitable in residential zoning. There are three valid tea- If the council wants to do this they should have the nerve to rezone the area. There is plenty of commercial zoning in Redmond. 2. The local citizens are the ones whose rights are being infringed upon and it is my understandingthat they are totally opposed to the pro- posal. It is easy for those not affected to vote something un- desirable into their neighbors backyard. Why are those af- fected not heard and heeded? 3. If passed, this will be the first step in planning and sons for defeating this pro- variance or (as in this case) posal: conditional use. This has to be 1.

The marionette variety show is slated for the Aug. 18 program from 12:15-1 :l 5 p.m. at Anderson City Park, during the children's 1,mcheon. George is widely-known a~ the "Man Who Brings Puppets to Life." Ills variety show has been seen by over S00,0O0 persons in 45 states and Canada, Mtllerick said. Including Army, Navy and Air Military bases, Don George and Company's show has appeared In schools and on tours of all types. Viewed at a Mercer Island Parks Department show, the marionette show drew Miller- ick's attention as a must for the Redmond Bicycle Derby. "lie and his wife (who is the 'and Company,) put on a com- pletely professional program. When I talked with him later, I was amazed at the man's ability to entertain," Miller- ick commented. The recreation specialist indicated that George is also an excellent magician. "The whole time we were talkinghe was making a quarter dis- a0pear and reabpear, ,vnne- times out of tli:-: ear," tle marveled. The Bike-O-Rama takes place from I0:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Aug. 18. The cartoon party at the Cine-Mond Theatre runs from 10:30- 11:35 a.m., followed by the luncheon and enter- taJnment from 11:45 a.m. to l:lS p.m. Bicycle events are scheduled from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Redmond Elementar7 SchrfA playfield. Awards for each of the series - drag course, slalom r-ourseo tri- cycle course and grand priz course - will be ~ven by the parks department. Tickets for the entireBike- O-P area are now on sale a.t the Redirrond Parks and [~eco reation Department at City Hall. The fifty-cent tickets cover all children's events in the program. At this time the department needs interested wA,mteers to help with the Like-O-Rama. Anyone who is uilling to ~o sist is encouraged to c'A1 the parks department at 885-2300, ext. 240.

Mrs. Crouch's pacemaker was implanted when the hos- pital determined her heart did not stimulate itself to beat at a rate fast enough to keep up with the need of her heart, hospital personnel said. The patient is first ob- served in the Coronary Care Unit, they explained, and ev- aluated by the uniffs nursing and physician staff. Actual implantation was accom- plished through the co- ordinated efforts of a cardio- logist, surgeon, radiologist and anaesthesiologist. According to hospital spokeswoman Mary Leber, publicity of the operating doc- tors "has fallen under a lot of controversy," and doctors decline to have their names in print as associated with their performance. "There are a lot of strong feelings about this," Mrs. Leber said. "Doctors have been accused of headline- making and it violates their professional ethics." Mrs. Crouch, who lives at 518 Second St., was released one week after her recent operation, SVNews was told. Many patients, however, may leave after an overnight stay. The patient is thoroughly observed by the coronary care staff beginning immediately following the operation, to en- sure proper functionbeforehe is released to a fullhomelife, the hospital said. Shortly after what is des- cribed as "minor" surgery, Mrs. Crouch told SVNews she was somewhat incapacitated, but was hoping to "reach the part of the ladder they des- cribed in write-ups in the papers." At 76, however, she seemed pretty chipper, even though her' 'husband was doing all the housework. I'm just follow- ing directions," she said, "and doing everything they tell me to.'" According to the hospital, her prognosis is excellent.
