Veterans

Thank you to all the sponsors who helped make veterans section a success

To the sponsors of the Honoring Our Veterans section of The Issaquah Press — Aegis of Issaquah, Brown Bear Car Wash, Flintoft’s Funeral Home and Triple XXX Rootbeer Drive-in,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Thanks for helping us honor the veterans of the Issaquah area. Veterans are an important part of our community history and it is special to partner with you in highlighting those members of the community who have served our nation with a commitment to the Armed Forces of America.

We observed Memorial Day in the city of Issaquah as we gathered at Hillside Cemetery to remember those who have served and are currently serving our country. We appreciate your contribution and support of this tradition.

City park

Hiring an architect can’t improve upon the appreciation of natural beauty

The city has hired a landscape architect to plan and develop the downtown “crown jewel” park. I’m not clear on what we are asking the architect to do.

The location of this park is currently a very beautiful, scenic area. It was my hope — and that of many others I talk to — that this area would remain protected and undeveloped, except for some walking trails and maybe a couple of benches.

There is nothing particularly beautiful about grass, so unless we are looking at creating a mini Butchart Gardens (Hey, not a bad idea!), let’s let the natural growth of the area provide us with the beauty we seek on a pleasure walk.
