Help make school start times later
Issaquah has joined the national Start School Later movement, where health care professionals, sleep scientists, educators, economists, legislators, parents and students are united in their concern that early school start times for teenagers are a major factor contributing to the widespread sleep deprivation facing teens, and that this constitutes a significant public health concern.

The current system of emergency radio communication for King County’s police, fire and emergency services is nearly 20 years old and unfit for the size of our area. It’s time for an upgrade, and Proposition 1 provides the funds needed.
Vote yes on Proposition 1 because there is universal agreement, even by opponents of Proposition 1, that the need for a better, newer regional emergency radio network is real.

A 56 year-old Issaquah man shot an intruder breaking into his home on May 3.
In the 18500 block of Northwest Montreux Drive, the as-yet unidentified homeowner heard someone ringing his doorbell just before 1 p.m. After failing to recognize the mid-20s man that was outside his door, the homeowner ignored the summons. A few moments later, the suspect threw an object through a glass front door and entered the house.
The homeowner responded to the sound and the two men struggled. The homeowner fired two shots from his handgun, striking the suspect once in the shoulder.
A delivery truck driver saw the scuffle, heard the shot and made the initial 911 call at about 1:05 p.m.
The suspect was transported to Harborview Medical Center. The police have yet to charge him.
