Medina store facts

The March 15 Reporter included an article “Owner of Medina store wins court ruling.”

There were some confusing statements in this article.

The article stated “The recent court ruling in her favor could mean the opening of the Little Green Store is within sight.” The fact is that the owner of the store did not need this ruling at all to open the store. This very important fact was explained to the citizens of Medina in a letter from the city manager last October. He explained that “Building permits for the new Green Store were issued in June 2005. Since then, the owner has been free to complete the store’s construction and open for business at any time...”.

The article also quoted Mrs. Lee’s attorney as saying “This new permit will clear the way for Mrs. Lee to open the store....”. The fact is that no new permit has been issued by the city.

It would seem that your readers would be better served if the articles in the paper presented the actual facts in a clear and objective manner.

Collateral damage

With the closing of Epicenter health club Feb. 1, 20 to 30 individuals who are breast cancer, other cancer survivors, suffering with chronic disorders such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, M.S., Parkinson’s no longer have a location in which to participate in a vivifying, medically based, fun exercise and movement program that offered them therapeutic benefits.

I’m speaking of The Lebed Method Program. This program was generously offered as a community service to non-club members by Epicenter in order to serve those who most needed an exercise program that could propel them toward wellness and feeling good. This program is offered in numerous locations in and around Seattle; and in over 600 hospitals; wellness centers; and fitness clubs in the United States, and Internationally. Sadly it is now nonexistent in Bellevue.

This easy-on-the-body, unique system of exercise and movement is structured on sound medical basics that offer therapeutic benefits. Over the years, participants have consistently experienced marked improvements in their health within a wonderful, supportive community. It has also been shown to be most favorable for seniors, those newly entering an exercise regimen, pregnant and nursing women.

Unlike traditional physiotherapy programs, the Lebed program is a long-term lifestyle process aimed at helping cancer survivors, and those with chronic disorders, recover and thrive both physically and emotionally.

We are currently looking for a new home in which to offer this unique, outstanding program to the Bellevue and surrounding residents.
