Frustrations simmer at council meeting BY MEGAN CAMPBELL ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
The long process of reviewing the 2035 Comprehensive Plan and a tree retention ordinance is taking a toll on the Sammamish City Council. After council voted 4-2 to continue Tuesday’s regular meeting past 10 p.m., Councilmember Nancy Whitten openly shared her contempt with the process of recent meetings. “I am appalled at the
scheduling that we’ve been going through for the last three weeks,” Whitten said. She thinks the several special sessions that have added to already late nights in city hall are a result of improper judgement for how long it would take to undergo major rewrites to the comprehensive plan. The council has been reviewing the comprehensive plan since March; it was due to the state June 30. Since then, council and
staff have gone through a tedious process sifting through collected amendments, from major policy revisions to simple wordsmithing, and discussing, approving or denying them point-by-point. After every discussion, staff would compile the amendments into a “clean” version of the plan. Come July 21, the last council meeting before the August recess, the council was given
On Sept. 10, law enforcement agencies began a missing persons hunt for an 83-year-old Issaquah man who had disappeared from his home the previous morning. Bryant Merrick had moved to Providence Point from Everett only weeks before. He suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and Issaquah police noted he was unfamiliar with his new hometown in their alert. Merrick was found safe by Seattle police in the north end of the city early on Sept. 11. The search ended in fewer than 24 hours, quietly and quickly, but marked a historic turning point in Washington state’s law enforcement protocols. The Merrick case marked the first use in Washington state of the Silver Alert protocol, a system similar to Amber Alert, but targeted for persons over 60 with SEE SILVER, 15
Seniors file suit against center’s leadership BY DANIEL NASH ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
The Issaquah Valley Senior Center’s executive director, board of directors and others attached to the center were hit with a defamation lawsuit after a lawyer representing two banned members and a former employee filed the paperwork Sept. 8. “Today the senior center board and the senior center executive director were served and we are going to sue them,” plaintiff David Waggoner said in public comment at that evening’s Issaquah City Council meeting.

Conway crash kills Issaquahn BY DANIEL NASH ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
A 64-year-old Issaquah man died Sept. 10 in a headon collision on Interstate 5 in Conway, Skagit County. The victim, Joseph Gibbons, was identified by Washington State Patrol the morning of Sept. 11 after the agency notified next of kin. Gibbons was traveling north on the highway when a southbound sedan driven by a 19-year-old woman crossed into the opposing
lanes and crashed into his vehicle head-on, Trooper Mark Francis said. State troopers found Gibbon dead at the scene of the accident. Two additional vehicles were involved in the collision, sending 42-yearold Oak Harbor woman Sarah Ney and 23-year-old Tukwila man Truc Nguyen to Skagit Valley Hospital with minor injuries. “According to [the 19-yearold], she had a little black dog running around on the seats and that caused the crash,”
Francis said. “It’s also a possibility drugs were involved. ... There was some paraphernalia and a pipe in the car.” The woman was booked into Skagit County Jail the night of the crash and troopers obtained a warrant for a blood sample for toxicology tests. She has not been charged with a crime, but troopers are investigating the case as a possible vehicular homicide. Daniel Nash: 425-391-0363 ext. 5052; firstname.lastname@example.org
A longtime Issaquah firefighter passed away Monday morning from complications of cancer. Michael Raymond VanDenBergh, 47, was diagnosed with “dutyMICHAEL related” cancer five years VANDENBERGH ago, according to a statement from Eastside Fire and Rescue. Firefighters may have a higher likelihood of developing cancers of the respiratory, digestive and urinary systems as well as a mesothelioma risk double that of the U.S. population, according to data from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Since 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sub-agency has studied 30,000 firefighters who served between 1950 and 2010.
“Even though the industry has made huge strides in raising awareness and getting in place many measures to avoid or reduce contracting debilitating and sometimes deadly ailments, this risk still haunts us all,” Fire Chief Lee Soptich said. VanDenBergh spent most of his career in Issaquah. Deputy Chief Wes Collins recalled interviewing VanDenBergh when he applied to join Issaquah’s fire department and again after Eastside Fire and Rescue had incorporated. VanDenBergh had a passion for serving the community and always left his fellow firefighters with a smile, Collins said. “Mike was an accomplished EMT, firefighter, driver and acting officer,” Soptich said. “He was reliable, dedicated and met every criteria required to be numbered as a true public servant.” VanDenBergh is survived by his wife, Renee, and children, Ethan and Sophie. Memorial services are being planned.
Minor earthquake hits east of Issaquah BY DANIEL NASH ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
A minor earthquake hit east of Issaquah early Tuesday morning. The 2.3 magnitude earthquake was recorded in the Snoqualmie Valley at 3:53 a.m. by the Pacific Northwest Seismic Net-
work, at a depth of more than 12.4 miles. A magnitude 2.3 earthquake is felt slightly by some people and causes no building damage, according to documents from the U.S. Geological Survey. Tuesday’s earthquake was preceded the prior weekend by nearby magnitude 0.4 and 4.0 earthquakes.

‘Welcome to Sammamish’ City estimates 2,500 came out to Klahanie Park for city’s bash BY MEGAN CAMPBELL ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
Klahanie siblings, 8-year-old Noah and 7-year-old Heidi Foxman, walked right up to the Sammamish mayor and offered up their strength and skills Saturday morning. They, too, wanted to help with the treeplanting ceremony. Among the 10 officials gathered around a 15- to 20-foot red oak, the siblings were given golden shovels to scoop up mulch and dump it at the base of the newly planted tree. This ceremony kicked off the “Welcome to Sammamish” party for Klahanie residents in Klahanie Park Sept. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sammamish city officials organized the celebration for residents after Klahanie-area voters showed in April their overwhelming desire to annex into the city. Thousands showed and wandered through the park off of Southeast Klahanie Boulevard for food, live music and children's activities. Lorrie Schleg, who chairs the Klahaniearea Transition Committee, said the annexation is off to a great start — even though it won’t be official until Jan. 1, 2016. During her remarks before the treeplanting ceremony, she said, while people are excited for the promised lower taxes and improved services, people are ready to contribute to their community, whether it's

through volunteer work or by serving on the city council. She, along with the two Foxman children, the seven-member Sammamish council and King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert, placed a bit of dirt around the native North American red oak, planted the previous day near the park's entrance. Lambert, who represents District 3, which includes the cities of Sammamish and Issaquah, shared her memories about the early days of the annexation process. She recounted her time with officials from both cities and the Puget Sound Regional Council during the “put-onyour-seatbelt” process of finding a place for Klahanie residents. Lambert didn’t have a preference for whether roughly 11,000 people became Issaquah or Sammamish citizens — she’d still be their representative on the county council. “I just want them to be happy,” she said. Klahanie-area voters twice denied annexing to Issaquah, in 2005 and 2014. Just a little more than a year after the 2014 ballot failed in Issaquah, Klahanie residents voted themselves into Sammamish with 86 percent approval. “I’m so glad we’ve come to this day,” Lambert said. Energetic live bands, like Recess Monkey and The Not-Its, played on the main stage as attendees wandered by numerous booths set up on the green field. Along the edge of the booths were several bouncy houses and other activities. One such amusement was a runway, outlined by yellow caution tape attached to SEE WELCOME, 11

Lock it or lose it BY DET. CPL. LAURA ASHBELL
he Issaquah Police Department recently hosted National Night Out to build neighborhood camaraderie and encourage crime prevention activities. It was wonderful to spend an evening with so many members of our community. Many of you shared your willingness to help prevent crime in your neighborhoods. So, we’re taking you up on your offer and answering your question, “What can I do to help keep our community safe?” Part of the solution is simple: If you don’t lock your home or vehicle, you’re making it a potential target. It’s always upsetting for us to see a member of our community who has had property stolen. We hear personal stories LAURA of items that can never be replaced, such ASBELL as family photos, hours of work saved on a laptop or important financial documents. One of my recent cases included 122 separate victims. A large amount of stolen property was recovered from inside a stolen vehicle, including a huge amount of mail taken during thefts and vehicle prowls. As we sorted the stolen items, it was heartbreaking to see the handwritten letters from children, uncashed paychecks and birthday cards that never arrived. While talking with our officers and reviewing reports, it is apparent that many of these crimes involved unlocked car doors and unsecured windows and doors in homes. All too often, there’s a neighborhood where items are stolen overnight from an entire street of unlocked cars. With residential burglaries, the entry point is often an open door or window. Here’s what you can do to keep your valuables and family safe: ■ Remove valuables from your car. ■ Lock your car doors. ■ Secure the windows and doors to your homes. SEE CRIME, 5 ISSAQUAH | SAMMAMISH

Murky future for charter schools
ry as it might, Washington just can’t get this charter school thing down right. For years, backers of this privately run, publicly funded model of educating endured rejection by voters worried that diverting public dimes in this manner might sink the state’s school system. The mood turned in 2012 when billionaire believers of this education alternative put serious amounts of their money JERRY CORNFIELD into helping pass Initiative 1240. An alliance of national experts hailed the measure as one of the best written charter school laws in the nation. Until Sept. 4. That’s when the state Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, struck down the law as unconstitutional and began the countdown to the legal extermination of nine charter schools serving 1,200 students. So now what? The Washington Charter School Commission held a special meeting Wednesday [Sept. 9] for commissioners to ponder the path of whatifs ahead of them. “We need to remain focused,” executive director Joshua Halsey said before the meeting. “These are real
schools. These are real kids that are being impacted by the decisions made by adults.” Conversations already are occurring on how to keep schools open and fix the law. But first, the Attorney General’s Office and lawyers for initiative backers will try to convince the Supreme Court — or at least a majority — to reconsider and retreat from its original decision. That motion must be filed within 20 days of the ruling. Because it’s highly probable the court won’t change its mind, the state’s attorneys also will ask justices to provide enough time for the commission to extricate the public’s fingers from these operations. That also will give founders of the schools a chance to take their next step, which presumably will be to become private schools for the foreseeable future. On that point, the Washington State Charter School Association, a private group which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to assist the schools, is making sure money won’t be an issue. Its leaders vow to drum up the estimated $14 million needed to keep every school open through June. Meanwhile, figuring out how to legitimize charter schools will be much harder as it will require acSEE CORNFIELD, 5
To the editor Valderrama works on citizens’ behalf
Sammamish has suffered for years at the hands of irresponsible management and a city council that works in the interest of that management and development, instead of us the citizens. I have taken all I can stand. I am sickened by what has and is going on all over the plateau. We have a chance this November to make some changes to our city council. The more council members we elect that stand up for us, the better chance we have of stopping what I call the “construction destruction.” Please re-elect Ramiro Valderrama. All you have to do is attend a council meeting or read the paper to know he has been exemplary at his job and the councilman who truly works on our behalf. He has the courage and ethics to do what is right, but he is mostly always shot down by the majority of the council. He needs new council members to work with so the Sammamish citizens’ wishes and concerns are addressed first and most important. This can happen. Please also vote for Christie Malchow and Tom Hornish. With the three of them in office we have a chance to take our city off the awful course of total destruction. It is much too late for most of the plateau, just look around and you can see what I mean.

If you’re a small-business owner, your “to do” list probably never ends. But here’s one task you might have overlooked: funding your own retirement plan. Fortunately, when choosing a retirement plan, you’ve got some good choices. Although the various plans have different requirements and contribution limits, they all offer tax-deferred earnings potential, and some allow you to make tax-deductible contributions. One of the plans you might consider is an “owneronly” 401(k), which offers many of the same benefits JOE BILSBOROUGH found in 401(k) plans offered by big companies. This FINANCIAL ADVISOR plan may be appropriate for you if you have no fulltime employees, other than yourself or your spouse. Other retirement plan options include a SEP IRA and a SIMPLE IRA. And you can even establish your own defined benefit plan, similar to the traditional pension plan that was once commonplace. Explore your choices carefully, possibly with the help of a financial professional. But don’t wait too long to act – when building resources for retirement, time is your greatest ally.
I hear this a lot—people want a tea to help them relax in the evening, and many cannot drink beverages made with chamomile. I like Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil for relaxation, and many of my customers have reported success with its relaxing effects. I also understand that passion flower and linden flower can have relaxing effects when steeped as a beverage. It’s a good idea to check with your doctor before using any herbal to make sure it won’t conflict with medications you may be taking.

In fact, several studies have shown that those who consume breakfast on a daily basis had consistently higher intakes of many macronutrients, some of which have been identified as lacking in U.S. diets, such as iron, calcium, magnesium, folate, B12 and DR. BRIAN TIU fiber. On the other hand, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, finds that normal weight breakfast eaters also aren’t necessarily better off than breakfast skippers, at least metabolically speaking. Bottom Line: Perhaps, we are asking the wrong question. Not everyone enjoys eating first thing in the morning. But your first choice of foods (fruits, vegetables and whole grain rather than sweets) may contribute to an overall healthy diet.

Donations put food back on the shelves Volunteers raise thousands of pounds of food BY MEGAN CAMPBELL ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
Michele Clash and her 7-yearold son stopped outside the Issaquah-Pine Lake QFC double doors to hand volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints a bag of groceries Saturday. She and her family have lived in Sammamish for about a decade. For as long as the city has participated in the Mayor’s Month of Concern for the Hungry, she’s donated. “Every year, all the time, every store,” she said. She donates because she wants to teach her boys “that reaching out to others in need is a way of life, rather than a moment in

time when a catastrophic disaster occurs.” The Mayor's Month of Concern for the Hungry event has been in swing since 2009. It's part of the larger Eastside community event, Eastside's Month of Concern for the Hungry, where communities around the Eastside and local volunteers kick off September with a month-long food drive, which began Sept. 12. Donations from the QFC stores in Sammamish and Klahanie went to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank. The Issaquah food bank, which collected donations Sept. 12 from five locations, raised 8,674 pounds of food and $1,252 by the end of the day. Of that, the Sammamish and Klahanie store contributed 2,424 pounds of food. Food bank Executive Director Cori Walters said this was definitely more than past years. She said the food bank looks forward to this drive. "Until the food drive, our shelves are pretty lean and options are very limited," she said. She attributes the amount raised to good weather, an upcoming Seahawks game — which means people are at the store stocking up on game day supplies — and a large pool of volunteers. Clash donated at one of three stores in Sammamish and Klahanie that volunteers manned Saturday. Volunteers will be out again collecting donations Sept. 19 and

Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. They will be outside of Safeway in the Sammamish Highlands shopping center, the QFC in Klahanie and the Issaquah-Pine Lake QFC. Food and cash collected at the Sammamish Safeway go toward Hopelink, the Redmond food bank. In two-hour shifts, members of the Church of Jesus Christ LatterDay Saints were out Sept. 12, as part of their Day of Service project. Brad Blackhurst, who coordinated the efforts for the Union Hill Ward, estimated about 50 of the 60 volunteers Sept. 12 were from the church. "We all joined hands and helped out," Blackhurst said.

Zombie Walk returns to Issaquah Issaquah just can’t shake its zombie problem. The undead will return to Front Street for the sixth year in a row Oct. 24 for the Downtown Zombie Walk. First organized in 2009 by Downtown Issaquah Association board member Tom Gotuzzo, the Zombie Walk is an opportunity for city residents to don their creepiest and kookiest makeup and shamble down to city hall to recreate Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Blue Dog Dance instructor Destiny Jackson will offer classes on the “Thriller”

dance 7:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 8, Oct. 15 and Oct. 22. On the day of the walk, practice and makeup will begin at the historic Shell Station at 232 Front St. S. at 2:30 p.m. The walk itself begins at 4:30 p.m., at a leisurely enough pace for the journey to take a half hour. The “Thriller” performance will be at 5 p.m. For more information on the event, visit www.issaquahwa.gov/civicalerts. aspx?AID=1735.
The lawsuit alleges that executive director Courtney Jaren, the senior center’s nine board members and four additional individuals went into “defamation ‘hyperdrive,’” and participated in a campaign to falsely accuse former members Waggoner and Regina Poirier of harassment and elder abuse of late senior center member Lee Scheeler. Affidavits submitted by Scheeler’s daughter-in-law, Peggy Scheeler, and center Veterans Liaison Joel Estey accused Poirier of attempting to use her relationship with Scheeler to take ownership of his house and make other material gains. When he cut off contact with Poirier, other seniors conspired to make him meet with her, Peggy Scheeler’s affidavit alleged — a third plaintiff and former senior center driver Gregory Wagner was named as one of these conspirators. An additional affidavit, whose author was redacted from copies provided to the Reporter, accused Waggoner of interrupting a birthday party at the senior center to lob accusations of financial misconduct and poor performance at Jaren.

Those affidavits were used to support Poirier’s and Waggoner’s ban from the senior center property in February and April, respectively, and silence questions about the nonprofit’s finances, attorney Inez Petersen wrote in the filing. Further posters and informal documents, notably a June newsletter that did not name any of the plaintiffs in the defamation case, continued elder abuse allegations against Poirier, Waggoner, Wagner and others despite the fact no formal report had been made to the state, Petersen wrote. Despite the lack of names in the newsletter, Petersen argued the public nature of the dispute had made her clients’ names common knowledge. “When the Defendants use the term ‘the small group’ or an equivalent, and then in the same document they also use the term ‘the small group, including the two who received trespass orders,’ and the readers have recently been exposed to a front-page news article about the trespasses with the name identified, the correlation between the two terms is easily made,” Petersen wrote. The plaintiffs in the defamation suit are seeking $100,000 in damages from each defendant and attorney fees.

Flood proposes alternative transportation package BY DANIEL NASH ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
Issaquah City Council challenger Tim Flood has released a $153 million proposed bond package for funding transportation projects in the city. Dubbing the proposal Address The Mess, Flood said the package would focus city resources on Issaquah’s outlying neighborhoods ahead of the downtown core. Flood, a resident of Issaquah’s West Lake Sammamish Parkway neighborhoods, developed his plan from projects already listed in the city’s transportation concurrency plan and six-year Transportation Improvement Program while positioning it as an alternative that reprioritizes listed projects. “I think we should address our current congestion and make good on the promises made to annexed areas of the city before we are asked to fund dense
growth in Central Issaquah,” Flood said in a press release. “Any package based on our concurrency plan puts growth ahead of citizen sentiment and we deserve better than that.” In a follow-up interview with the Reporter, Flood said he used his professional background in data analysis to find overlap between projects noted in the TIP and transportation concurrency. With that information, he built Address The Mess around a blend of big ticket projects — such as those on Front Street, Interstate 90 and State Route 500 — and outlying neighborhood projects, like a Providence Point traffic light, which Flood said were based on his conversations with voters. “If we don’t take action to address the existing backlog for neighborhoods’ priorities, we may never,” Flood said.

Bellevue City Council lays out plans for Issaquah to assume South Cove/Greenwood Point utilities Turning over utilities last step to 2006 annexation, transfer of area to Issaquah BY ALLISON DEANGELIS REPORTER NEWSPAPERS
The Bellevue City Council will vote on a motion within the next month to transfer operations of the South Cover/Greenwood Point area's utilities to the city of Issaquah, the last step in turning over the area after it was annexed in 2006. “It’s unusual not to hear about us assuming something, but it's a bit unusual to discuss turning something over to Issaquah," Mayor Claudia Balducci said to fellow city council members during a meeting on Sept. 14. Nav Otal, the director of utilities for the city of Bellevue, presented the details of the transfer to council members. The agreement will result
in a net income loss to Bellevue of half a million dollars and will result in a slight bill increase for Bellevue residents. Under the proposed agreement, the city of Issaquah will assume operations and the finances of the area's utilities, including the costs and revenue. Currently, the city of Bellevue spends more than $920,000 to purchase wholesale water from the Cascade Water Alliance, sewage disposal, state and local taxes, and other service costs. The area brings in approximately $1.5 million in annual revenue. Approximately 1,000 households in the South Cove/ Greenwood Point area are wrapped up in the proposed agreement. That number is roughly 2.5 percent of Bellevue's water and sewer customers. The loss of income to the city's general fund would be offset by a small rate increase to Bellevue residents — roughly $0.72 per month.
Deputy Mayor Kevin Wallace raised a question about the annual “wheeling” charge the city of Issaquah will pay Bellevue for the maintenance, operating and repair costs to pipes within Bellevue's borders that ferry water to the area in question. "It just seems like $7,300 sounds like a small amount for all of the money that we pay to maintain that system," Wallace said. The number was calculated using a usage formula, Otal reported. If approved, it would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2017. The 15-month delay is due in part to billing system improvements and enhancements the city of Issaquah needs to undergo. The Bellevue City Council expects to vote on the plan within the next month. Allison DeAngelis: 425-453-4290; firstname.lastname@example.org

the 250-page document, complete with all sections and added revisions. Sammamish Mayor Tom Vance asked for a motion to approve the plan at its second reading July 21. It was not seconded and the review was continued to Sept. 1. During that July meeting, Whitten expressed her disappoint with the rushed process to approve “a document that is as critically important as the comp plan.” Whitten said there was “very little hope” for council members to take a thorough, conscientious look at the document during the day they were given for review. “I was extremely concerned when I understood that the leadership in particular, backed by staff, were hoping that we pass it today,” she said July 21. “I think that’s shortsighted and that we would not be doing the job we’re elected to do.” To this point, Whitten made similar comments Tuesday regarding the tree retention ordinance timeline. “You’re in a hurry to get this ordinance passed and I have to ask why? Wouldn’t you rather get it right than not?” she asked City Manager Ben Yazici Tuesday evening. Whitten had just requested council and staff review a Pine Lake study in conjunction with the tree retention ordinance, when she received some push back. “We can get the study, but we’re trying to get everything done by the Oct. 6 meeting,” Yazici said. Bringing in this study, Yazici said, would be beneficial, but it would take more time. “We’ve been at this since last year September,” he said. “We owe it to the citizens of Sammamish. We need to get this thing done. It’s not going to be perfect, but we can always amend it as we go forward.” Council will review the tree ordinance again Oct. 6. The public hearing also has been continued to that date. The Oct. 6 meeting likely will be another special session, beginning at 3 or 3:30 p.m., instead of the normal 6:30 p.m. start time. “When we’re fresh, we’re at our best,” Yazici said. “When it gets to be 10:30, 11 o’clock, we’re all agitated, angry and tired.” The council will review and likely vote on the comprehensive plan Oct. 13. The public hearing for the plan is continued to Oct. 13, also.

Five-year-old Natalie Hollander, of Klahanie, gave it a go, reaching 8 mph. Her mother, Stephanie, encouraged her from the starting line as she raced to beat her last time. The Hollanders have lived in Klahanie

Sampson experiences a summer homecoming BY SHAUN SCOTT ISSAQUAH/SAMMAMISH REPORTER
Minor league baseball player and 2010 Skyline graduate Adrian Sampson got the call of a lifetime on the final day of July: The 23-year-old righthander found out he was traded to the Tacoma Rainiers. Sampson was drafted in his sophomore year at Bellevue College to play for the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, and specifically played for the AAA affiliate the Indianapolis Indians. Now, he’s moved across the country to be back on the West Coast, about an hour from his hometown school, Skyline High. He had seven appearances as a starting pitcher for the Rainiers in the 2015 season. “It’s been fantastic,” Sampson said in late August. “Having family and friends come out to every game is great. I was refreshed when I came here. Seeing

them in the stands is tremendous.” He admitted to having mixed emotions after getting the call he would be traded to the Seattle Mariners organization’s minor league team. “We had a baseball family over there in Pittsburgh. I played with those guys for four years. Obviously that is the hardest part. You spend countless hours with your teammates every day,” Sampson said. “When I heard I was being traded to the Seattle Mariners my heart almost stopped. If there was one organization out there I would have liked to be traded to, this was it for sure.” Sampson, who pitched for the Bellevue Bulldogs in 2011 and 2012 before being drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft, credits the college’s baseball coach, Mark Yoshino, for molding him into the pitcher he is today. “Yosh was definitely my second father figure to me. He sat me down and taught
me the art of pitching,” Sampson said. “He just had so many uncharacteristic ways of teaching and it was just outstanding. The work he puts in is incredible. He is always putting in 12- to 14-hour days and is just an unbelievable coach.” Sampson recorded a 2-4 overall record in seven starts since being acquired by the Rainiers. He said his breaking ball is his best pitch, but he feels confident in

his fastball as well as a newly developed change-up. “You got to get guys out with the fastball if you want to pitch in the big leagues,” he said. “The biggest pitch I learned about three years ago was the change-up. That is so important in professional ball, but my breaking ball is definitely my best pitch.”

some form of dementia. The Silver Alert program was enacted on Aug. 27. Under the Silver Alert, Merrick’s identifying information, car description and license plate number broadcast across three counties on the state Department of Transportation’s digital billboards and through highway advisory radio broadcasts. Unlike an Amber Alert, his information was not publicized through the emergency broadcast system. Issaquah police and other local agencies received several calls from bystanders
whom had seen the alert, which helped police locate Merrick, Issaquah Detective Laura Asbell said shortly after his discovery. Creating a Silver Alert was not significantly different from the procedure for filing an alert under the Endangered Missing Person Advisory program, as was previously done for missing seniors, Asbell said. However, she said that an Endangered Missing Person alert would not have included information being broadcast on digital billboards. The first Silver Alert protocol was enacted in Oklahoma in 2006. Since then, 27 states have adopted formal Silver Alert pro-
grams, with nine more creating similar programs. The legislation establishing Washington state’s Silver Alert, authored by state Rep. Sherry Appleton, passed 88-4 in the House and 43-0 in the Senate during the 2015 first special session. “This is about compassion, it’s about mercy, it’s about responsibility,” Appleton said. Silver Alerts join Amber Alerts for children and Blue Alerts for perpetrators of violence against police. Asbell said the Silver Alert was “absolutely” a success in locating Merrick. “He was found, he was found safe and he was found and returned home quickly,” she said.
Free health and fitness fair planned
Issaquah Fitness and Arena Sports will host a free Family Health and Fitness Fair for the public from 2-6 p.m. Sept. 26.
