At one time, the city of- fered to purchase the system from Group W for about $1 million. The deal fell through. Then, the city started studying the possibili- ty of building an Issaquah- owned system. That, too, is on hold pending the Sacramento decision, Culver said. "We're going to wait and see. If we build a system now, it will cost more than $1 million," he said. So, for the time being, everything is status quo, Marshall said. TCI does not intend to disrupt service here. "Obviously it would not be in the customer's best in- terest. We have a reputation as being a reputable com- pany. The city is the one who refuses to yield on the rate thing aad we won't abdicate our legal rights." r.

The final evening of the series will be a live performance of the Taproot Theatre in "Say No, Max," an adventure story for children that addresses such themes as peer pressure, self-esteem and learnin to Group W have been at odds because federal laws changed eliminating local controls over rates charged by cable providers. Because Issaquah is in a valley, and it can't get decent television reception without cable, it wants assurances that Group W will charge what the city requests. TC1 stands firm behind its right to regulate what it charges in town. TCI has of- fered, however to never charge more in Issaquah than it charges other communities in the Puget Sound region. "From my point of view, this latest move is just posturing on the city's part -- legal maneuvering to try and get the system away from us," Marshall said. Issaquah Mayor A.J. Culver agrees somewhat with Marshall's assessment of the situation. "It's a way to for- mallytell them that we do not cbncur,with the sale. It's to give us some leverage in negotiating a position," he said. But Culver concedes, "We are really at a loss on what to do. It is a tremendous cost to step out on the legal bat- tlefield." For that reason, city at- torneys are closely watching a Sacramento, California case that deals with precisely the same situation as in Issa- quah. "We have to be very careful. We can look at it in a rational way and be careful not to get carried away." Getting carried away would be telling TCI to leave and then facing a lawsuit, he said. With the way past negotia- tions have gone, however, Marshall said litigation will most likely determine the outcome. "My opinion is that this will ultimately be decided in a court of law. This whole thing was brought on by the city. ' We're just say "no" to alcohol-and drugs. Performances will be at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. January 26. Tickets for all three even- ings combined are $12.50 and children are admitted free to the Taproot Theatre produc- tion with a paying adult.
