Driving down a Bell- ingham street late one night about ten years ago, a some- what intoxicated Fred Do,rr fell asleep behind the wheel of his big Oldsmobile Super 88. It was his twenty-first birthday. The car veered off the road, crashed through a street sign and hit a couple of trees. The street sign went through the front windshild, but missed Dorr, who walked away from his totaled car with only a broken tooth. "Call it chance, call it be- ing watched over, call it whatever you want," said Dorr. "I'm here and I'm lucky." He was a junior in college then. Now he is the counselor for the junior class at lssa- quah High School. He says surviving his accident was a matter of luck, but the lesson he learned from it is what he tries to pass on to students: grow up, take care of your- self, and become responsible. "You're responsible for yourself; and your life will be what you make it to be," he said. Dorr said his accident taught him to appreciate life. And that's another message he wants to give to others. "Tomorrow is not guaranteed," he said, "How many kids do we have to see get killed on the streets in car accidents? And everyone walks around like tomor- row's going to be here. I'm not saying we should cram every bit of life into every se- cond that we live. That would be foolish. But if you can look for the positive and after it, you're going to get more out of life." Paul Johnson, an Issaquah resident, will open his Certified Public Accountant business on January 1. Johnson will work out of his home on the Plateau, and will handle personal and business taxes, financial planning, and computer system in- Stallations.

Thanks also to the merchants who have lots of spirit in decorating their store windows. Happy Fred Dorr That message is the essence of a book called "Life Lines" which Dorr publish- ed in 1982. The book is a col- lection of what Dorr calls "thought-provoking con- cepts" that "only the reader is going to comprehend, by his own interpretation." Each of Life Lines' 28 pages contains a single some- times poem-like thought: --"It's harder to hide your feelings than it is to have them;" --"Accept the Reflections you are Given by the World around you, At that time you will truly see your self," --Love permeates all levels of contrary energy with but a single thought. Ask of it, it is yours. Simple focus." The development of his book happened by accident. Dorr was a counselor at May- wood Junior High until two years ago. He used to write down his thoughts after an encounter with a student, and show them to his secretary, Lenora Reeves. Reeves told Dorr his thoughts were worth keeping and that he should put them in order for publishing some- day. That's what he did, and he's still doing it. He has completed the manuscript of a second book, "Life Lines I1," which is now being look- ed at by a New York publish- er. Dorr has begun a third book as well. The latter two are expressions of his per- sonal growth since 1982. Dorr speaks with seeming- ly unlimited enthusiasm about his life and philosophy, his book and his job. He has as much energy and good humor as almost any high school student, which helps him develop in- formal, friend-like relation- ships with them. To some kids he's like a big brother or surrogate uncle, he said. In Dorr's office there is a casual atmosphere. During an interview Dorr sat relaxed at his paper-strewn desk with collar open and sleeves rolled up. Several students came in, one bringing Dorr a custard- filled pastry, and others just to say "hi" or get a hug. "If I don't have time to Dorr says he receives a 90 percent favorable response to Life Lines. Those who object to it usually do so because they think it states the ob- vious or it's too optimiic, he said. "People who don't buy into it are usually skepti- cal people," he added. Dorr downplays the accomplishment of having published a book. "I don't think my talent is extraordinary. I think it's a similar way of looking at things that alot of people have. They just haven't gone to the trouble to write it, to give a kid a hug, I'm not do- get it into print, and to make ing my job," Dorr said. it visible to other people."
