Neighbors want pitbull mix removed after it kills small dog

Once healthy and vibrant, 48-year-old Evan Schrier falls victim to dementia





or five years Evan Schrier, now 48, and his wife, Allyson Schrier, were told Evan had ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). This misdiagnosis, and Evan’s behavior, threw the entire family into a rabbit hole they never expected.

A new retaining wall was needed at their Fall City home, and Evan showed no interest in the project. While she and the boys, with help from neighbors, shoveled heavy rock, Evan stayed inside. Allyson’s anger at his perceived laziness was building up inside. On Christmas Eve 2010, Evan’s parents flew in for the holiday from Rhode Island. “They were in denial,” Allyson said.

Tammy Hessler was walking her four-year-old toy poodle Friday night, July 26, on a leash, when a mixed breed dog, thought to be a pit bull, also on a leash but without a muzzle, lunged at the poodle, inflicting one deadly bite into the dog’s lungs and stomach. The poodle, Jackson, died from his wound said Eric Swansen, operations manager for regional animal services. Swansen said the pit bull, owned by Christina Hart, was being led by a young boy. “We are still investigating,” Swansen said. Swansen said an initial news story that appeared on KING 5 surprised him, because a report hadn’t been made. He said Hessler reported it Monday morning. “She was very distraught,” he said. Neighbor Cassandra Miles said she heard screaming when the attack occurred. “By the time I got out there the dog was dead,” Miles said of Jackson. Miles said the pit bull is usually muzzled. Miles said Hessler is very distraught, but she wishes no ill will on Hart. She said Hart is very interested in animal rescue, and has a big heart. “She (Hart) wants this dog to live, but it’s not okay for a dog to die of an inhumane act so this dog can be saved,” Miles said. It was initially reported by KING 5 that the pit bull was startled as it came face-to-face with the poodle, but Miles said the pit bull was five houses down the street when it spotted Jackson and headed for




Most people associate dementia and Alzheimer’s disease with those of very advanced age. But Evan Schrier’s story blows that theory to pieces. He has frontal temporal dementia, or Pick’s disease, one of the most misunderstood and misdiagnosed of the dementias. There is no cure. Evan was a bright, engaged software engineer with Microsoft when, in 2002, he decided to pursue his Ph.D. in computer science. He was 37 at the time. Six years into the program he was realizing that he couldn’t write a paper. He was missing deadlines on projects, which Allyson said was very uncharacteristic. He couldn’t solve problems, so he abandoned the Ph.D. program. “He was pretty freaked out,” Allyson said. “Like, why can’t I get this done?” He also had been a very engaged dad to the couple’s two sons, Ari, now 16, and Eli, 14. But he started to ignore the boys when he came home from work, preferring to play computer games instead. Gradually he lost interest in the things he loved — kayaking, rafting, backpacking — all the things he and Allyson enjoyed doing together. In 2006 a psychiatrist diagnosed Evan with ADHD. He went back to Microsoft, but six months into the job it wasn’t working because he was tasked with research and writing papers, the very same thing that forced him to drop out of the Ph.D. program at the University of Washington. Allyson said he took a year off while they experimented with different drugs for ADHD. He landed another job, which he was very excited about, with a gaming company called Sucker Punch Productions. By 2009 to 2010, Allyson began to notice social changes. Normally very social and

Within a year, Sucker Punch let him go, which he blamed on the ADHD medications which he said “agitated him.” Allyson said Microsoft took him back in June 2010, but within three months he was complaining that people didn’t respect him. “Things were getting really muddy at home,” she said.

Dozens of kids turned out Tuesday to participate in Issaquah’s annual Chalk Art Festival. The free event, sponsored by the Issaquah Arts Commission, ran from noon to 5 p.m. on the sidewalks in front of the Issaquah Community Center. “This is just awesome,” said Sammamish resident Jeannine Pound, who brought her three girls to the event for the first time. At the end of the day, top participants from various age categories were awarded prizes for their work. Designs this year ranged from cult heroes like Super Mario and Simba from the “Lion King” to abstract creations.

Sammamish Heritage Society receives $8K grant The Sammamish Heritage Society recently was awarded a grant of $8,000 from the 2013 Landmarks Capital program funded by King County 4culture for the Reard-Freed house located in Big Rock Park. The grant, designated for Sammamish’s only landmarked property, is funded with revenues derived from lodging taxes. With the state’s passage of the biennial budget recently, the Heritage Society also T:4.8”

is assured of receiving a $40,000 grant from the Heritage Capital Projects Fund which will be used to begin work on the porch which was removed in the original move of the house in 2001. The addition of these two grants and donated materials to complete the exterior painting of the house brings the total amount raised by the volunteer group for the restoration of the Reard-Freed house to over $150,000.

him. Miles said Hart has another pit bull she rescued that isn’t as aggressive. Swansen said Hart has retained an attorney. The Highlands has covenants, conditions and restrictions (CCRs) that lay out a set of rules. It is his understanding that the homeowner’s association wants animal services to weigh in on the attack. Rachel Garrett, Director of Community Operations for the Issaquah Highlands Community Association said the association is waiting for animal services to finish its investigation. She said the governing documents do include a breed restriction which prohibits pit bulls, any dog registered as a pit bull or Staffordshire Terrier, or has the look of the breed. “We have every intention of enforcing the governing documents,” Garrett said. However, animal services is having no luck talking to Hart. “She has not told her side of the story yet,” he said. “We need a statement.” He said the dog is still in Hart’s home. Swansen said it’s important to report a bite immediately as it is often a matter of safety and health. He said if it’s life-threatening call 9-1-1 to get aid and the police to the scene. Swanson said neither animal is licensed in this case. If they were, it would make it easier to track incidents such as this, or if your dog is lost, they have the records which can help locate the animal.

Licensing your pet is easy and gives your pet an inexpensive insurance policy for its safety and protection. Plus, it is the law. Contact regional animal services at 206-296-2712 or email petlicense@ for more information.

“Neighbors don’t feel safe with this dog in the neighborhood,” Swansen said. Miles said the dog has attacked other dogs twice before – none of it reported. Swanson said public safety is the service’s priority. “Some of these behaviors are dangerous,” he said. “Our animal control officers know animal behavior very, very well. We have some level of presumption when an animal bites a human that rabies are a possibility, so we may have to quarantine an animal. Rabies is 100 percent fatal.” Once the investigation is completed, animal services will issue a notice of violation. He said any time a dog is involved in a vicious attack, the animal can be ordered removed from the home. “This isn’t the right neighborhood for this,” Miles said. “If she had a farm with 10 acres it would be better.”

NEWS NOTES Microsoft, baseball and Sir Paul at Safeco


bservers were harsh recently when one of them described as “an absolute abomination” a large entity’s economic news. No, it wasn’t Detroit going bankrupt, but Microsoft reporting its quarterly financials. The company missed analysts’ expectations on quarterly revenue and earnings per share. So, how bad is bad? Microsoft earned only $19.9 billion in the quarter and only had a profit of $4.97 billion. Only? Analysts expected more, but we’re still talking billions in revenue and profits – staggering large numbers. So, no need yet for Wall Street stockbrokers to leap from their buildings or contemplate selling apples on the street corner.


ormer National League MVP Ryan Braun made the right choice when he accepted a penalty for being tied to a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. Braun is suspended for the rest of the season and the postseason, costing him about $3 million of his $8.5 million salary. Another dozen or so baseball players – including former Mariner Alex Rodriguez – have been targeted by Major League Baseball following a report they had been connected with Biogenesis of America, a now-closed anti-aging clinic. Will they all own up as well as Braun? Let’s hope.

Washington’s high cost of doing business


ov. Jay Inslee was in New York for the world rollout of BMW’s new electric car, the BMW i3, which is partially built in Washington. We are all justifiably proud of our state’s role and see the car as a harbinger of Washington’s economic future. The BMW i3 features parts made from carbon fiber Don Brunell processed at the SGL plant in Moses Lake. The $100 million SGL plant is located in Moses Lake largely because of affordable energy from hydropower and tax incentives that encourage companies to locate in rural areas. SGL employs 80 people and we

hope that number will grow. But that growth is not assured. SGL would like to expand its Moses Lake facility, but the tax incentive that helped convince the company to locate there has expired. That puts a microscope on other factors that make Washington a high-cost state in which to do business. For example, workers’ compensation, an insurance program for workers injured on the job. Washington, has the highest workers’ comp benefits in the nation. Another big cost driver for Washington employers is unemployment insurance (UI). Our state’s top manufacturer, The Boeing Company, is dealing with many of these issues. Asked about recent job cuts and future job prospects, Boeing’s chief financial officer, Greg Smith, says the company is focusing on growing jobs

elsewhere, in lower-cost regions of the country. Perhaps it is time to build on the success of tax incentives that convince employers to locate in Washington by offering similar incentives to existing employers to expand and add jobs here. Employers need a consistent and predictable tax and regulatory environment to make long-term plans. Similarly, state lawmakers should constantly reassess the impacts of business costs in Washington and ensure that we offer competitive advantages to employers. Washington state has many attributes that attract new employers to our beautiful state. The challenge may be convincing them to stay here.

REPORTER Q/A | Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson The Reporter recently sat down with Washington Attorney General BOB FERGUSON to discuss his perspective on goals, challenges in consumer protection, privacy and more.

Bob Ferguson: My father was a veteran. Both my grandfathers, and my great-great-grandfather, were veterans. I’m from a large family. All my uncles served in World War II. Fortunately, they all returned home. I’ve always had strong views about veterans issues, about mental health issues related to vets, the disproportionate number of homeless who are vets and job training. On the King County Council, I got very involved in veterans issues, and proposed the Veterans and Human Services Levy, which voters approved in 2005. I wrote it, I proposed it. One thing I did in taking office was seeing what we do, currently, in the AG’s office around veterans. The answer was ‘not a whole lot.’ We changed that. We have a robust web presence. We’re about to go public with resource guides related to veterans’ legal rights. We want to make sure we’re educating veterans. When someone calls in with a consumer complaint, one question we ask is, ‘Are you a veteran?’ We want to know that, and be able to track cases that are targeting vets. Veterans (and) active-duty (service-people) have

Many scams often have similar aspects. During the summer months, when the weather is good, you see folks come to your door, offering services (and) contractors coming by, offering a great deal. Folks should always go our webpage to get information about the person at their door. Any deal that seems too good to be true, usually is.

certain rights other folks don’t.


You’ve been working with Google on privacy concerns. What are your thoughts about privacy in the digital age? I joined 22 other attorney generals in writing a letter to Google. Google changed its privacy controls, but didn’t notify folks, giving them the chance to opt out or adjust their privacy settings. (That change) shouldn’t happen automatically. (Residents) should have the chance to weigh in and have the settings they want to protect their data as they move through the internet. Technology is moving at a rapid rate. In our office, we have to work hard to keep up with that, and protect customers. It’s our job and responsibility to hold powerful interests accountable who don’t play by the rules. The average Washingtonian can’t afford a high-priced lawyer. We’re the advocate for the people.


Why did the state file suit against Arlene’s Flowers, the Tri-Cities business that refused to serve a gay customer?


Under our consumer protection laws, we have broad authority to make sure businesses follow our laws. Our law against

Bob Ferguson discrimination has a group of protected classes. You can’t discriminate on the basis of race or religion. In 2006, the Legislature added sexual orientation as a protected class. In our view, it’s clear the owner discriminated against an individual because of his sexual orientation: He wanted flowers for his same-sex wedding. We are confident this case will end up in the state’s Supreme Court and that we’ll prevail. Often with a small business, when we think they’re violating our consumer protection laws, we’ll send them a letter. We did that in this case. All (the owner) had to do was agree not to refuse such service in the future. She didn’t have to admit she did anything wrong. She decided to contest it. That’s her right ... I do feel our argument is very strong.

Issaquah transit center to be included in pilot program BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

The Sound Transit board of directors has approved a pilot program to test the use of parking permits in four of its parkand-ride facilities, including Issaquah’s transit center. The voluntary program, set to begin in 2014, would guarantee users of the parking lot a space for a fee of $5 per quarter for high occupancy vehicles, and $33 per quarter for single occupancy vehicles. The program would allow for 10 percent of spaces to be set aside initially, perhaps 20 percent later. According to Sound Transit, as of May 2013, 13 of 23 Sound Transit-operated customer parking facilities were at or above 90 percent capacity. Demand for park-and-ride spaces will continue to increase as transit service expands and regional population and employment grow. Sound Transit currently manages more than 13,000 parking spaces. By 2020

Correction Last week’s front-page story “Smiles Abound: Challenge Races bring happiness to Issaquah streets for 16th straight year,”

that number is expected to exceed 19,000 parking spaces. “Sound Transit has had concerns over parking for a number of years,” said Sound Transit board member and Issaquah City Council member Fred Butler. “Part of our concern is that we know that a lot of nontransit users use the park and ride lots. This gives transit users the right to have a guaranteed spot.” Butler said people will meet at a park and ride facility, then take off together in one vehicle, never using mass transit at all. Sound Transit also is looking at installing technology that lets motorists know how many, if any, spaces are available in a given lot. This will hopefully cut down on people circling a parking lot searching for an available space Butler said the Sound Transit Board still has some implementing decisions to make. Staff writer Linda Ball can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.

left out mention of the Issaquah Rotary Club’s contribution. Rotary has sponsored the event, along with the Life Enrichment Options, the last 16 years.


What do the latest round of state budget cuts mean for your office?

Everybody’s got to do more with less. But to be candid, those cuts have real impacts. I don’t intend to scale back our customer protection efforts. If anything, we should be enhancing those. In a conversation with state legislators, I said, ‘I’m about to hand you a (settlement) check for $5.5 million. Just leave me $2 million.’ They said no. That’s frustrating. (The Attorney General’s) Consumer Protection (Division) brings in millions to the state for education campaigns, for folks to avoid being scammed. Tens of millions of dollars went to organizations that help keep people in their homes. One case generated more money for the state general fund than the state gave to the entire

Consumer Protection Division. Salaries were frozen for our attorneys for a number of years. A first-year attorney makes $50,000. A second-year, third-, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-year attorney makes $50,000 a year. You have a challenge recruiting and retaining the top talent with that system. Our attorneys handle huge tort cases, where the state is being sued for millions. You have to have good attorneys. We’re losing attorneys all the time. Thankfully, the freeze was eliminated this year. Addressing it is tough when our budget is being cut, but I felt something has to be done, because it’ll ultimately cost the state more, as well as being unfair to those who are working extremely hard.


What else are you proud of?

We’ve got 266 people civilly committed at McNeil Island. These individuals are the worst of the worst sexually violent predators. Every year, they come up with the possibility of being released. So we work to keep folks civilly committed. This year, we had 17 cases for recommitment. We have been successful in 16 of those. There are sensitive constitutional issues at play. We take seriously the responsibility to protect the public. We’re taking a look at what we can do, so that the legislature gives us the proper tools to ensure the worst of the worst stay civilly committed.

What to do about the skate park? The Blotter Issaquah’s skate park sits low between 2nd Avenue and the Rainier Trail. LINDA


On a warm weekday afternoon, a 19-year-old Issaquah man sat on his skateboard outside the Issaquah Skateboard Park, taking a break before leaving for work. He actually uses the park for the purpose of skating. Yet the park has become notorious for not-so-savory activity after dark — a secluded haven for drug use and homeless youths. “I feel like most of the people who do drugs down here don’t use the skate park,” the young man, who did not want to be identified, said. With it’s secluded location, adjacent to the Rainier Trail, between Issaquah Middle School and Issaquah and Tiger Mountain High Schools, he said it draws kids from both sides and has become a common meeting ground. Although hard drug use has been identified in the area of the skateboard park, the young man said he was only aware of pot smoking. A survey of Issaquah residents identified need for a parks bond, but constructing a new skate park somewhere else and repurposing the existing site didn’t make the cut on the $10 million bond which will appear on the November ballot. According to a new proposal created specifically to address the skate park, the city estimates the cost to build a new park and get rid of the existing one will be approximately $350,000. The bill states there are funding sources available through the park mitigation fund, ($200,000), and the real estate excise fund, ($150,000). The bill says if council approves funding, it would move forward with public outreach/input for ideas on where to locate a new skateboard park, and to talk about appropriate amenities for the project. At the July 1 city council meeting, there was plenty of testimony about the scourge that is the skate park. Anne Moore, who is on the Issaquah School District’s board of directors

BALL, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter

asked for it to be a priority on the parks bond. She has two children who attend IHS with one who walks to Village Theater from IHS who is uncomfortable walking through the area. In comparison, the Sammamish skateboard park is right next to city hall, in a bright, lighted area. A Sammamish couple who testified at that same meeting said they were “horrified” by the Issaquah skateboard park. A downtown Issaquah resident said there was a “very interesting culture” near the skate park. He said the skate park has the feel of a deserted building on a bad street. Judy Brewer is the treasurer of the Issaquah Community Network. ICN’s Drug Free Community Coalition was formed in Sept. 2011, and Brewer said the skate park was the first major project the coalition identified. Members of the coalition were told about the problem by students who had volunteered to be a part of the group. “They spoke very frankly about it,” Brewer said. Brewer said they were shocked that the skate park wasn’t included in the park bond. “I’m not going to throw stones, but this is something we’ve vocalized for some time,” Brewer said. “We were not aware of the public meeting at Pickering Barn (to identify park needs).” She said the Friday night before the July 1 city council meeting, knowing the skate park wasn’t recommended to be a part of the bond, they gathered over 240 signatures on a petition to relocate the skate park. “This is a top priority for us in our

action plan,” Brewer said. She said when the skate park was built, she believes the city didn’t want it to be that visible. “Somewhere after 2002, something changed that was not present in the 90s,” Brewer said. “We’re in a very different time now.” A time that now includes a shift to the use of heroin becoming popular again, as a result of the increased availability of opioids such as OxyContin. But they are expensive and hard to get. Heroin is cheaper and easy to get. In April, the coalition held a spring clean event at the skate park and Rainier Trail, clearing 20 bags of garbage that included beer and alcohol bottles, drug paraphernalia and hypodermic needles. In May, it launched the Rainier Trail Walk-Around program. There are now 25 adult volunteers who walk the trail in pairs. Funding for the walker’s training was from a King County grant. If the city council approves funding, which could happen at its Sept. 3 meeting, after establishing a Citizen’s Advisory Board and holding a series of public meetings among other things, a new skate park could become a reality. Brewer said she thinks the Issaquah School District might even have some money to move the project along. Notes from the services and safety committee meeting July 17 mentions the possibility of partnering with ISD to see if there are potential sites on any of ISD’s properties. “I will be so surprised if the city doesn’t step up,” Brewer said.

Police reports from Issaquah and Sammamish


The following information was compiled from Sammamish & Issaquah police reports:

CAN’T HOLD IT A caller reported an intoxicated man urinating in the bushes near an Issaquah fast food drivethrough about 10 p.m., July 21. Police contacted the man, who was sitting in the passenger seat of a vehicle in the 5500 block of East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast. The suspect was accompanied by his sober father, who was driving. The man admitted to urinating in the bushes as he urgently needed to go and couldn’t use the restaurant because the inside portion was closed. He was warned for his behavior.

NO CRACK HERE Issaquah police were dispatched to a call July 23 of a male and a female possibly using a crack pipe. The caller said they were “tripping.” When police arrived in the 1400 block of Gilman Boulevard they contacted the suspects who indicated they were using an electronic cigarette. They showed officers the device.

PEPSI MAX, NOW Police responded to a call July 20 of a man knocking on his neigh-

bor’s doors because he had run out of Pepsi Max and he needed someone to go to the store and restock. The man indicated he needed Pepsi Max for energy because he had several things to do over the weekend.

POLICE CONFRONTATION Sammamish police were forced to deal with an unruly man July 14 after his son was in the process of being taken to jail for being a minor in possession at a Sammamish city park. Just as officers were preparing to take the 19-year-old from the Sammamish Landing, a man waved down officers and stepped in front of their vehicle. He became very animated and told officers he was a member of the Washington State Patrol for 17 years and that “WSP doesn’t take MIPs to jail.” The 52-year-old Sammamish man put himself in position between the officer’s door so he couldn’t shut it. He was told to back away. He continued to rant and it appeared to the reporting officer as though he wanted Sammamish police to change their decision in the case involving the man’s son. At no time did the man become physical.

TREE VANDALS A Sammamish man called police July 14 to report someone broke off the base of two of the four apple trees he had recently planted in the 3500 block of 223rd Avenue Southeast. It appeared as if someone kicked the trees and broke them.

cooking, cleaning — everything — so she decided to go for a walk. “I came back and his car was gone,” she said. “Six hours later, as I was serving dinner he showed up.” She said she cornered him at the door and asked where he’d been. She was astonished to learn that he’d been at the Microsoft office printing out “Dungeons and Dragons,” because he didn’t want to do it on his home computer — on Christmas Eve. By the spring of 2011, Allyson said she knew something was very, very wrong. She knew he was going to lose his job at Microsoft since he was choosing to be belligerent and disengage at work. He would swear loudly at his computer and in front of the kids. By the fall of 2011, Allyson knew they were going to have to sell their home. The first place she lived when she moved west from Connecticut was Issaquah, so she found an apartment in town. She and the boys moved, but Evan chose to stay on the 10 acres in Fall City with their large dog. With a background in technology as well, Allyson was looking for work, but Evan wasn’t. “He came to the apartment every night for dinner, and we spent the weekends at the Fall City house,” she said. At a party a short time later, he blew a gasket because he couldn’t get his boots on when they were leaving. It turned out he was trying to put on someone else’s boots that looked like his, but were much smaller. She had to calm him down, as he was making quite a scene. At that point, in the fall of 2011, she laid out his behavior to her therapist, who recommended that they see Dr. Ileana Calinoiu. Both Evan and Allyson went to see Calinoiu who said this was not ADHD. On the list of possibilities was Pick’s disease. “I researched it and cried and cried,” Allyson said. “I recognized it.” A PET scan revealed the truth. There were holes in his brain. With FTD, or Pick’s, his short-term and long-term memory are fine. “Imagine a road map but someone has erased the roads,” Allyson said. That’s how it is. He can’t get from A to B. Now, she said, he’s like a little kid. When he speaks it’s as though he has marbles in his

mouth. He can’t read books unless he’s read them before — and he can’t write, spell, do math or play computer games. He moved into the apartment, they sold the house in Fall City and found a home to buy in Issaquah close-in so Evan can walk to parks and downtown. The home is also right across the street from a Squak Mountain trail head. Ari and Eli didn’t go to school for weeks when the diagnosis of FTD came, but Ari is enrolled in Running Start for the fall and Eli will attend Issaquah High School. An adult care facility is probably in the future, but right now Allyson does have a friend helping at home. “We have amazing friends,” she said. “One takes him to lunch every Thursday, and he has a guy’s night out once a month. Evan is my hero. He is trying so hard to be a partner to me. And he is trying so hard to be the dad he knows that our boys deserve. He is very sad that he can no longer work, but he continues to do tae kwon do, he works out at the gym, he joins me for walks in the woods, and he helps to the best of his abilities with whatever projects need to be done. His disease prevents him from comprehending the ways in which he is impaired, so he feels pretty normal.” She considers his diagnosis a blessing because she carried so much anger for so many years, but once she knew he had FTD sadness replaced the anger. “It allowed me to go back to why I loved him in the first place,” she said. His doctor, Soo Borsen has retired, so in the fall Evan will have a new doctor. But he is part of a study at the University of California San Francisco, and has already donated his brain to the study when he dies. Allyson and Evan will travel back to San Francisco in the fall for another PET scan, and that will tell them how much and how fast he is regressing. “His doctor said he is a big, healthy guy so he could be around another 10-15 years, but half of that he’ll be in a vegetative state,” Allyson said. Dr. James Leverenz with the University of Washington’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center told Allyson that the reason so many people are misdiagnosed is because neurologists are looking for a mass — for a tumor. An earlier correct diagnosis would have saved them both a world of frustration. Staff writer Linda Ball can be reached at 425391-0363, ext. 5052.

Staying out of trouble On the course with Brian Mogg BY JOSH SUMAN JSUMAN@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

Brian Mogg is one of the state’s top prep golfers and is entering his second year in the Bellevue College Running Start program. A member of the Skyline High School golf team, Mogg has made three trips to the state tournament during his time as a prep, finishing in a tie for third place in 2012 and 2013 after a sixth place finish as a freshman. Mogg agreed to spend some time with reporter Josh Suman to break down the game, offer some easy-to-follow tips and provide some insight during this series, which will run throughout the summer. The first installment of the series took a look at playing with pace and patience on the green, one of the most difficult tacts for golfers of all skill levels. This time, Mogg helps explain some of the ways he stays out and gets out of trouble.

Formulate a plan It seems simple enough, but Mogg said before each hole, he plots out his ideal path down the course by first finding his trouble spots. “The first thing I look at is what side I can miss on,” he said. “If there is water left, I want to make sure to miss right to take that out of play.”

Keep the hands quiet Getting the club head square, and keeping it that way through the bottom of the swing can be one of the most frustrating parts of the game. Everyone wants to be able to flex a little muscle with the driver, but Mogg said too much hand motion will cripple that plan before it begins. “The one thing I don’t want is a lot of hand motion, because it gets the club opening and closing,” he said. “When

GET SQUARED UP Mogg says alignment is one of the first things players should be focused on during any stroke, and he has a special tool to help him do the job. He sets a pair of alignment sticks - thin metal sticks that can be purchased at most golf retailers - on either side of his swing path, aimed at the target. “I pick out a foot in front of the ball, and put that in line with where I want to go,” he said.

you get really open on the backswing, you have to flip it over and under pressure it is a lot tougher to control.” Instead of focusing on club face placement, Mogg said keeping alignment in order from the feet up to the shoulders, and keeping the hands quiet, is the key to staying out of trouble off the tee.

Make some lemonade Every round of golf is guaranteed to have a few shots that find the rough or sand trap, but working out of trouble is one of the keys to dropping your score consistently. When Mogg finds himself in the sand or anywhere off the fairway, he said his first task is identification. “If I have a terrible lie, I know I just have to get it out,” he said. “It doesn’t have to be close, I just have to get out of trouble.” Failing to recognize a bad situation can lead to an overaggressive play, but Mogg said when the circumstances are right to go after it, don’t hesitate. “If I have a good lie, I’m trying to get it as close as I can,” he said. “Or even make it.”

Get familiar with the sand Just as is the case on the green, spending some time practicing in the sand can make all the difference. “When you show up to the course, even before you play, hitting shots in the practice bunkers will help you,” Mogg

said. Also like greens, sand traps will have a different consistency and makeup depending on the course and weather. Finding out if the sand is hard, soft or sparsely distributed in the bunker can be a big advantage when trouble strikes.

The King County Sheriff ’s department reported that a 31-year-old Issaquah man was arrested Wednesday, July 24, after leaving his 3-month-old son in the car while he shopped at QFC. The car was locked with the windows rolled up. King County Sheriff ’s deputies responded to a 911 call at the shopping center in the 4500 block of Klahanie around 7 p.m. A witness told police she saw the baby in the car in the parking lot — with no one around. The witness went into nearby stores trying to find the owner of the car and had store employees announce the information over the public address system to no response. When police arrived the baby was still in the car. A sergeant immediately grabbed a hammer from his patrol car and knocked out a window to rescue the baby. The baby was lethargic and slow to respond when pulled from the hot car and was taken to Issaquah-Swedish hospital for treatment. The father eventually was located in the QFC. Police believe he left the child in the car for about 20 minutes. He was arrested and booked for second degree child abandonment. Deputies notified child protective services; the child was released to his mother.

Former Issaquah mail carrier sentenced A former Issaquah mail carrier, Annie Y. Wei, was sentenced July 26 to three years on probation and 100 hours of community service for stealing the contents of birthday and condolence cards. She was caught when a postal inspector placed a card on her route and it was found in her purse. Wei pleaded guilty in April of stealing about $500 in gift cards over a six-month period. In a letter to the court, Wei wrote, “I am very sorry for the harm I have caused others. By violating the trust that the people place in me by delivering their mail, I brought shame not only on myself, but on my family as well.” She was sentenced by U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian Tsuchida.

Jan Sigurd Johansen passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, July 21, 2013, at his home in Sammamish,WA. Jan was born in Albany, California on July 27, 1954 to Melba and Gunnar Johansen. The second of 5 children, this strapping towheaded child would grow to be a loving and compassionate husband, brother, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. All through his life Jan strove fervently to serve as a faithful witness to Jehovah. In doing so, his dignity, integrity, honesty and compassion showed in both his personal and professional lives. Known for his kindness and generosity, Jan displayed a love for his family and his fellow man unparalleled by most. Jan had a unique comedic side famous to all who knew him. He could always be counted on for a deadpan joke or a big, boisterous laugh. Jan was survived by his wife Rosa, siblings;Tekla, Nels, Eric, Risé, his sons; Leif and Thomas, daughters; Michelle, Adriana, Angela, Elizabeth, Deborah, grandchildren; Caysi’Rae, Baylee, Nash, Elizabeth, Taylor, Jasmine, Sara, Michael, Marley, Sophia, Jonathan, Isabel, Julia, Malachai and Asher.

For Dental Implant Treatment, it’s a ClearChoice! ClearChoice team of specialists brings you a dental implant solution that fits your budget ... in just one day!* A LEADER IN DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENT Virtually every adult will lose a tooth, and as we get older, more Americans will suffer with missing and failing teeth. These days, however, there are dental implant solutions that either didn’t exist in the past or which were difficult to access. But now, ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers are leading the way in innovative dental implant treatments. Dental Implants are a permanent solution for dental problems. And now your treatment, from our team of specialists, can often be accomplished in just one day *… and without the need for additional bone graft surgeries. In fact, dental implants can last a lifetime and have become the treatment of choice for replacement of missing and failing teeth. With more than 10,000 dental implant procedures performed, ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers have become a leader in dental implant treatment delivery. TECHNOLOGY Every ClearChoice Dental Implant Center includes an on-site 3D CAT Scan. The 3D CAT Scan technology costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. This technology provides three-dimensional and crosssectional views that allow ClearChoice doctors to examine the quality and density of the bone that will anchor the dental implants; select the correct type and size of implants; determine the precise placement of implants, and avoid the nerves and sinuses. Since every smile is custom designed, each ClearChoice Center has a specialized Dental Implant in-house lab to custom make your smile.

They said they had specialists, a lab, and high tech equipment all at one location, but I had no idea that they could really do all of this in just one day!*



Actual ClearChoice Patient TEAM OF SPECIALISTS

The technology alone cannot elevate ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers in their field. Our technology is paired with an expert professional team of doctor specialists enabling ClearChoice to empower so many patients around the country to change their lives. These qualified specialists include an oral surgeon who places implants, and a prosthodontist who designs your custom new smile. Each of the doctors has special expertise and can be trusted to deliver your high quality implant care. Dental Implants are a surgical procedure and the ClearChoice doctors have extensive experience in this area including administering anesthesia to provide comfort. Custom fabrication of the patient’s new smile and replacement teeth are accomplished by trained lab technicians in the on-site dental implant lab. Our local specialists are available for a FREE initial consultation or even second opinions. Why wait, call now! SATISFACTION Whether for a missing single tooth, multiple teeth or a whole mouthful of missing or failing teeth, ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers provide comprehensive implant treatment professionally and affordably in a fraction of the time it would take many other professionals. That’s why in an independent study of thousands of patients, ClearChoice patients would overwhelmingly recommend ClearChoice to others†.

“When my teeth started to go bad, I had small children and their care was more important to me than my own. When I finally decided I had to get help I turned to ClearChoice. It was the

best decision I have ever made!” — Christina, real ClearChoice patient

Tooth loss is not your fault. Doing nothing about it is. Come see how easy it is to live the comfortable life you deserve ...
