THE ISSAQUAH PRESS WEDNESDAY, JULY 15, 2009 * A5 School officials discuss 2009 session with state legislators lssaquah School District officials met with state legislators to discuss the 2009 session at a meeting June 17. Sen. Fred Jarrett and Reps. Ross Hunter and Marcie Maxwell met with school board members to recap information about basic edu- cation reform and competition for state funding with other initiatives, like health insurance. They also talked about the spe- cial legislative session in fall, which is aimed to secure a vote for increasing levy capacity for school districts across the state. If the bill passes, district officials could ask voters to approve 4 per- cent more for their Maintenance and Operations Levy. Hunter warned district officials to not vote on the ballot measure language before the Legislature meets and there is resolution about levy increases. Legislators also spoke briefly about state funding and the econo- my, which they said would contin- ue to struggle through at least the end of the year.

Sunset Way Dipping: A way of life for nudists FROM PAGE A4 ruing and hot tubbing, cooking out, and reading and lounging in the sun. For many people there, being naked is a way of life that makes them feel better about themselves and other human beings. I was the one being shy and awkward. And as anyone who knows me can tell you, I am never either of those things. Other interesting anecdotes that I'm allowed to put in a family newspaper: "I'd be more likely to get bad looks on a regular beach than a nudist beach," a full-figured Karen Lahey told me. "It's so comfortable, being nude. People are so open. It's an equalizer. You're just a person." She also mentioned that being a nudist made packing for a vacation re- ally easy. I bet you don't get chargedfor an extra carry on. A photographer from another newspaper was approached by a tall man wearing only a ban- dauna on his head and a pair of m',n, ored sunglasses. You ever photograph a naked man on a Harley before? he asked: The photographer replied that if the man ever "laid his bike down," he'd have a heck of a road rash. The man replied, "I don't plan to lay my bike do,w. You want the photo or not? Off they went. I did not get to see the re- sults. If you're just dying to try this way of life, Nudestock is coming up at Fraternity Snoqualmie on Saturday, Aug. 29. Live music is the order of the day. Massage and craft vendors will be available, too. First-time visitors always re- ceive a complimentary one-day membership, I kind of doubt that Fraternity Snoqualmie folks set the Guin- ness record that day, since clubs across the country were vying for it, But they get an A+ in my book for bravery. And no, Dawnzella, I am still not ready to join. Learn more about the camp at www.fraternitysnoquahnie, corn or call 392-NUDE. Reach Editor Kathleen R. Merrill at 392- 6434, ext. 227, or editor@isspress.com. Comment on this story at www.issaquah- press, com.
