             here are numerous government agency programs
             the public has come to depend on, but budget
             cuts have put them on hold or dropped them alto-
             gether. The King County Sheriff’s Party Patrol
             Task Force is one of them. The program aimed at
preventing underage drinking and driving is the latest to fall
victim to the budget ax.
  Local police officers have historically been part of that task
force. Only a few weeks ago, Issaquah police broke up a
party in a Squak Mountain neighborhood that resulted in ci-
tations for 34 teens and adults under age 21.
  According to a spokesman for the sheriff’s department, un-
derage drinking citations generally go to high school stu-
dents. The real concern, of course, is that drinking and driv-
ing will lead to someone’s death. It happens annually this
time of year as the weather warms up — teens have more
free time to enjoy themselves, and graduation parties
  Will Issaquah youth spend the summer mourning the
death of one of their own? We pray not.
  The fact is that we shouldn’t need the Party Patrol to pre-
vent underage drinking and driving. That’s what parents are
for. A parent patrol of adults watching out for their own
teens, their teen’s friends, their neighboring teens or any
other teens could effectively limit minors from alcohol con-
sumption in the first place.
  Unfortunately, some parents think a good approach is to
