Mercer Island Reporter
Just five minutes by car outside the major metropolitan city of Seattle, Mercer Island is a wooded suburban oasis of 22,800 surrounded by a vast, wide ribbon of Lake Washington in full view of the majestic Mt. Rainier in the distance. The Mercer Island Reporter newspaper as it is known today was founded in 1954, by Fred M. Bassetti, an immigrant who also wrote and printed an Italian-language paper in Seattle’s Rainier Valley. Through the years, the Reporter has remained true to its roots. The newspaper staff knows that the paper does not belong to them but to the people of the Island community. It remains the indisputable source of local news — documenting the events, people and the ideas they care deeply about
