City arborist

Letting go of Alan Haywood was a mistake

Regarding the release of Alan Haywood: a very shortsighted action by the Issaquah City Council. We have just taken over Lake Sammamish State Park with its thousands of trees and remove the person who is best able to monitor the park trees!

Editorial

People don’t have time to keep an eye on legislators

In recent Press issues, citizens have complained about various City Council decisions. In Issaquah, the city cut the arborist position; in Sammamish, it is the trail construction. You fire off an editorial blaming the victims, the tax-paying citizens, for not attending  council meetings where these issues are discussed and decided.

School resource officers

A new set of eyes helps to protect our resources

Community center

City is keeping people from use with high prices

I have lived on the Sammamish Plateau since 1978 in unincorporated King County. I pay taxes to the Issaquah School District. I shop and dine daily in Issaquah and by doing so, pay sales taxes to Issaquah.

Traffic

Not having any money is the real issue

Ken Sessler has once again profounded about traffic and the Southeast Bypass. Ken, tell us something we don’t know about traffic in Issaquah.

The dearth of good north/south routes on the Eastside is historic in nature and if only we had a time machine to travel back in time to solve that problem back then, whenever “then” was.

Skate park

Amount for budget has always been $350,000

Issaquah City Council members do not debate opinions in the press, but I must correct a statement attributed to my fellow Councilman Joshua Schaer. It is factually incorrect, and may misinform skate park advocates.

Lend a helping hand at home

We see a lot of advertisements on TV showing how desperate children in developing countries are. They are dying because of hunger. We feel very sorry for those children.  People say that we have to help those suffering children and their families.

People say that Mother Teresa was an amazing person. People really admire her and they say that we can’t be like her.

Yes, we can. We can help those people in our own neighborhood. They are not only in developing areas around the world. They are everywhere in our society.

We are currently helping the winter shelters on the eastside in Bellevue. It is heartbreaking to see children that are hungry. When we served food on our last visit to the winter shelter, they said, “I am so hungry.” However, they were polite and well behaved. They were waiting patiently to eat. Read more
