Peamouth, the foot-long minnows that surge into Kelsey Creek every spring, are a featured topic on this month's Lake to Lake, a new news show about Bellevue. The reopening of West Lake Sammamish Parkway, Bellevue's first Heart Week and a youth conference are also covered.
The May episode is the third one so far. The program, aired on Bellevue TV (Channel 21) and the city's YouTube channel, is hosted by a rotating cast of public information officers and produced with help from Bellevue College students. Fire Lt. Troy Donlin is anchor this month.
You can learn about peamouth on Lake to Lake, as Utilities staff explain how the placement of logs, root wads and smooth boulders in Kelsey Creek, near the Wilburton Trestle, last year is expected to make navigating the stream easier for the minnows and other fish.
Other segments on the program include:
- The repair of West Lake Sammamish Parkway after a mudslide that washed out the land underneath the major arterial;
- Doctors from Overlake Hospital Medical Center explain the importance of blood pressure and blood glucose checks, being offered free at various locations in Bellevue during Heart Week (May 5-12);
- A youth conference hosted at City Hall; and
- An open house exploring cost-saving options for the light rail route through Bellevue.
