King County prosecutors have charged a 25-year-old North Bend man with possession of child pornography. Charging documents filed Friday, May 14, in King County Superior Court accuse Jayson T. Lottermoser of a single count of possessing depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Charges stemmed from a Bellevue Police investigation

last November. Court documents state that on Nov. 17, 2009, Lottermoser brought a damaged home computer drive to a Bellevue computer business, Hard Drives Northwest. The drive had been partially written over, and Lottermoser asked store staff to salvage data, photos and music. During the recovery process, employees found more than a hundred photos that appeared

to be child pornography, some depicting child rape, according to charging papers. The store’s service manager then called Bellevue Police. Speaking to police, Lottermoser denied that he was searching for child pornography, telling Detective Charley Vance that he had been searching for pornography related to the Olsen twins, Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, anime and other top-

ics using a peer-to-peer file sharing network. He told police that he knew there was child pornography on the drive, but was not interested in it and hadn’t gotten around to deleting it yet. He was charged and released. An arraignment is Thursday, May 27, in King County Superior Court. Prosecutors sought an order prohibiting Lottermoser from contacting minors.

because we don’t have much money,” Lake said. “Any family that needs help, we try to help them.” It’s hard for families to adjust to the absence of a husband, wife or parent during a tour of duty. And many families members don’t know what to do when their loved one is killed in action. The VFW works to educate people about the benefits and options that are available to them. Members also spend hours on weekends visiting patients at veterans’ hospitals. Lake said it used to be a multi-year chore to help veterans file benefit claims. Today, with computer technology, the

effort takes minutes. A national uproar a few years ago over Veterans Administration care has subsided, but there is still a big backlog of veterans who need help, Posey said. This month, the Mount Si post raised $1,000 to donate to the USO, or United Service Organization, which operates a military welcome center at Sea-Tac International Airport. Mount Si Post members fondly remember the USO’s support during their campaign days. Freeman, for one, recalled a USO dance he attended in Chicago while stationed at the Great Lakes Training Center at the outbreak of the Korean conflict. The chaperoned women couldn’t leave with the sailors, but couples found ways around the rules. Freeman met a girl named Rose, went out on dates and started exchanging letters. “When I came back in 1951, I married her,” he said.

civically involved as his. “We used to walk in the North Bend and Snoqualmie parades, used to be able to get enough guys to carry the flags,” Freeman said. “Now, we’re so few in numbers, we’re not strong enough to do those things.” “Nobody wants to join anything,” Freeman added. “When you join, that means you’ve got to get active and do whatever is needed.” Looking back on 66 years of involvement with VFW, Lake added that it is hard to think of the local post going away. He stays involved to keep active. “When you do something to help people, it makes you feel good,” Lake said. “All the guys that I work with, it’s nice to see them,” Freeman said. “It goes both ways.” Numbers may dwindle, but Lake is confident that the organization won’t disappear. Eventually, new veterans will come forward. “It’s so easy to say ‘Let someone else do it,’” Freeman said. “I used to say that, until it was my turn to go forward. Hopefully, somebody behind me will step forward to take my place.” The Veterans of Foreign Wars meet at 5 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month at their post, 38625 S.E. River St., Snoqualmie. They also meet for breakfast at 8 a.m. every Tuesday at Mount Si Golf Course. To learn more about their activities, call Post Commander Dave Lake at (425) 223-9135.

VETERANS FROM 1 ans groups formed after the Spanish-American War. The VFW is open to men and women. To become a member, a veteran must have received a campaign medal for overseas service, served a period of time in Korea, come under hostile fire or received hazard pay. “Our main job is to get good service from our government, to take care of our wounded,” said Posey. The Mount Si post raises funds by running coffee stands at Interstate rest stops. They also sell Memorial Day poppies to benefit families of active duty soldiers. “We don’t give much money,

At one time, the Mount Si Post had more than 250 members. About 100 are still on the books, but the active members can be counted on one hand. “We’re hanging on, trying to keep it afloat,” Lake said. “If we don’t get some new help, I don’t know what we’re going to do.” “We’ve been trying for a long time to reach the younger people,” said Freeman. At 78, “I’m one of the younger ones.” Freeman noted that younger generations may not be as
