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.

I spend a lot of time thinking about local people and things, and I’d like to point out some of them here.
Kudos to the parents of young Maddie Sprague, Jeannie and Colin Sprague who met Maddie when she was only a couple of weeks old. Although they knew about her health problems — she had open-heart surgery the day she was born — they adopted her anyway.

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.

Issaquah doesn’t forget.
Not a Veterans Day or a Memorial Day goes by without a city celebration honoring the men and women who fought, or continue to fight, for this country’s freedom.
Issaquah and its residents won’t forget those sacrifices anytime soon, because Dave Waggoner won’t let them.

Issaquah resident Stacy Strickland can remember the immediate bond she felt with Karen Conley the morning they met at Relay for Life on the track behind Issaquah High School.
The women were both at the school in response to an article in The Issaquah Press that described the need for additional help at the annual fundraiser that raises money to fight cancer.

Now serving her second year as president of the Mirrormont Community Association, Shepherd was also the driving force behind the founding of the Mirrormont Pea Patch.
