A ceremonial gavel was presented by the City Council to the Woodinville Parks and Recreation Commission March 24. On hand to accept were commissioners Kari Powers and Cathy Wiederhold, chairwoman Linda Sarpy, and vice chairman Randy Ransom. "I think you all deserve a hand," said Mayor Bob Miller after handing the gavel over.
   The commission was formed in January in response to the community's desire for more parks and recreation options. Councilmember Barbara Solberg also asked the council to recognize the efforts of Parks and Recreation Director, Lane Youngblood. The council applauded her work.
