Speaking at the meeting, Robert Brady, president of the Coalition of Plateau Community Clubs, said in- formal surveys throughout the plateau area show over- whelming support for an- nexation. Of the people polled, ap- proximately 88 percent had opinions either for or against annexation, he said. Of those people, 96 percent favored annexing to Issaquah, Brady said. In Klahanie Brady said the major concern dealt with in- adequate police protection because of manpower short- ages on the plateau. At times, it takes 45 minutes for police to respond to a call, he said.

Discussing various annex- ation-related issues with King County Councilman Bruce Laing, she said he re- ported people often turn to- ward cities for additional ser- vices. "What I gathered from our discussion is that when there is a need for higher levels of services is that the logical place to go for those services is to the cities," he said. Not everyone at the meet- ing spoke in favor of annexation. Issaquah High School senior Scott Nishiza- to was concerned that the city would spread itself too thin by taking on such a vast an- nexation area. Citing problems Issaquah already has keeping up with street resurfacing and repairs, he fears annexation would mean more neglect. "It seems annexation would be more beneficial to the people on the plateau than to the people in town," he said. AFFORDABLE QUALITY GROWN IN OUR GREENHOUSES !

He then asked if people wanted to pay more taxes, if they wanted to wait even longer for highway re- pairs, if people wanted higher utility bills or if people want to ruin the character of Is- saquah. "If you can answer 'no' to any of the above, don't pro- mote annexation," the paper said. Although he admits many questions still remain unan- swered in his mind, and that he wants to learn more about the upcoming issue, Nishi- zato said he basically sup- ports self-incorporation for the plateau area. The question answering period is just beginniing said Issaquah Mayor A.J. Culver. Whether questions come from individuals or groups, from people with broad con- cerns or from people with unique situations, answers need to be formulated and de- cisions need to be made, he said. The current annexation question surfaced in April when Culver was approached by Brady and a group of plateau residents wanting to pursue the issue. Annexation would mean the city's population would more than double from its current population of about 7,300 people. The land size would nearly triple from ap- proximately 6.5 square miles to from between 22 and 25 square miles.

School religion policy Continued from Page 1 rassed because the other stu- dents didn't understand why she felt like that." "Religion and differences can surely be studied as a so- cial studies course, but this should not occur in the first two weeks of December. "The study of religion should not be confused with the celebration of religion. Christmas carols with the Christ child and Jesus men- tioned, as well as decorating Christmas trees, is not ap- propriate as study. These are examples of celebration." "Halloween is so built up in the classroom, that it is the largest celebration the school offers in the fall sea- son, and one I refuse to allow my children to celebrate as it only honors satanic spirits. "If in the end it is the school policy to remove the 'Christian' religion out of the public school rooms, you must also remove the cele- bration of Halloween. "The real problem is that those who push for religion in the schools do so out of a commitment to their faith. Many denominations believe that you cannot be 'whole' unless you convert others. Kind of like the yellow pages, they 'never stop sell- ing.' "They don't care if their feelings interfere with our fights. They believe their faith is more important than our feelings. The question is, if these people feel so strongly, why do they send their children to public school rather than private school?" "I really disagreed with the man (at the November 22 meeting) who said Halloween wasn't a religious holiday. I attend Pine Lake Middle School, and I was really ticked off. At Christmas, the most anyone did was put up a small tree with apples on it in the office. "At Halloween, our school had a major fundraiser. We had foodand a big haunted house with a fortune teller out in front. "I also think there is not enough in social studies books. We studied all the times the Bible took place and there wasn't anything mentioned about great leaders of Israel. David had a large nation and powerful empire. Is he not important enough for our social studies book, or are you afraid someone might be offended because he's in the Bible? "You can't edit history." Q Q There are two ways to get beef with fewer calories. You can buy a lower grade of meat, such as U.S. Select, with less fat-but also less tenderness, juiciness and flavor. Or you can enjoy QFC's new Light Choice TM Natqral Beef with the superior U.S. Choice grade. Through scientific breeding and careful nutrition, QFC's Light Choice Beef has 25% less fat and fewer calories than other Choice- grade beef. So if you want all the flavor and quality of U.S. Choice beef, but without all the calories, there is really only one choice. New Light Choice Beef from QFC.
