Michael Violette (left) blows up a fist bump with Congressman Dave Reichert as fellow Issaquah Middle School sixth-graders Emma Bradshaw, Kaitlin Ragland and Kathryn Walsh look on Dec. 6 after the school assembly, ‘Ask, Listen, Learn: Kids and Alcohol Don’t Mix,’ where guests share their experiences about saying yes to healthy lifestyles and no to underage drinking. ‘I grew up in a home with domestic violence,’ Reichert told the assembled kids. ‘My dad made the wrong decision and decided to drink,’ he added. He encouraged the students to look to adults that make right decisions, ask them questions, listen to what is said and learn from the answers.
