ack in 1975 many things werehappening in Redmond. It was growingfrom a small town, with one trafc light, toa much larger city with development goingon everywhere. That was when
Pa adBabaa Bo
moved into Redmond. Theybought and restored the old farmhouse andbarn of one of the original family of settlers,the Perrigos. Today that beautiful spot isnow home to the Eagle Rim apartmentcommunity and that farmhouse is the centerand hub for Eagle Rim.The Beesons also became involved in theRedmond community through environmentalissues, going to Redmond City Councilmeetings and numerous other County andState meetings that affected Redmond.This is where I met Paul and Barbara.We were immediately attracted to the sameissues and concerns and this is also wherePaul and Barbara decided I should runfor the City Council. There were so manylarge issues facing the City, including thedevelopment of the old Redmond Golf Links,the loss of other valuable open spaces,apartments converting to condomiums andannexations happening all over.

3The Presdent’s Corner
(cid  pg 1)
Paul and Barbara applied the samepassion they had for their medicalprofessions to shaping and helping resolvesome of Redmond’s growth issues andenvironmental problems. I always thoughtthat they truly made people “start to think”about where the City of Redmond washeaded.After being on the City Counciland running for Mayor in 1979 (term ofofce was 1980-84) it was then that thedie was cast for me. I was fortunate tohave an excellent city staff and we wentabout setting goals and policies forpark acquisitions and trail rights. In themeantime, I was handling the myriad ofother challenges that go with running acity. For that experience, I will always begrateful. Much of the thanks goes to theBeesons.You know it has been said peoplecome into your life for a reason. Paul andBarbara surely came into mine and howprecious that relationship has been for meand my entire family, plus the huge benetit had for the City of Redmond. It is hard toput it all into words.Paul passed away this past August14th at the age of 97. I am going to attendhis memorial service at Yale University thisNovember. I’ll be happy to report on that ina later edition of
“The Redmond Recorder.” 
In closing, I’m reminded of a quote fromDr. William C. Menninger, founder of theMenninger Clinic and Foundation: “Find amission in life and take it seriously.” We cancertainly say that this exemplies the lifeof Paul and Barbara with their generouscontributions to the welfare of the City ofRedmond and its citizens. Dr. Beeson willbe missed by all. Our thoughts and prayersgo to the Beeson family.
