To date, 2007 revenue is up, expenditures are down
by Jeanette Knutson
Staff Writer

At the Sept. 11 council meeting, numbers guy Jim Katica, Woodinville’s Finance Director, offered the City Council a mid-year snapshot of the city’s revenues and expenditures. Katica’s report laid out the city’s financial position one quarter of the way into the two-year budget cycle. At this point, the forecast is good.

At year end, Katica expects the city will have $13.5 million more than planned, due in large part to higher than projected revenues and lower than projected expenditures.

Folks visiting the Dougherty Farmstead on Cherry Valley Road will learn how to churn butter and wash clothes on a scrub board. There will be logging demonstrations, weaving of traditional cedar hats and mule-drawn plows.

Former council candidate charged with fraud
by Lisa Allen
Valley View Editor

Three years after Rebecca Ish reportedly injured a tooth after biting into a McDonald’s cherry pie, the longtime Duvall resident and former City Council candidate was charged August 22nd with first-degree theft, first-degree attempted theft and two counts of filing a false claim.

Ish, 38, pleaded not guilty earlier this month to all the charges. Both insurance company officials and Duvall police investigated the matter.

According to King County prosecutors, Ish, on July 31, 2004, said she broke a tooth after biting into a pit in a cherry pie purchased at a McDonald’s. The pie was made by The Bama Companies. Ish submitted a claim for $6,371 for dental work she said was done by her employer, a Redmond dentist. The claim was paid by the pie company’s insurer, Chubb Federal Insurance Co.
