PROSSER - Sattler & Associates, certified public accountants in Prosser, has changed its name to Newhouse & Associates, but the change will not affect the Sattler & Associates office in Sunnyside. Both offices were founded by Keith Sattler, but he no longer owns either. According to Brian Newhouse, he bought out the Sattler & Associates office in Prosser in October of 2011. "I decided to keep the name for a year and a half for continuity purposes," said Newhouse. "But it was time to change it." Sattler is semi-retired and still works at his old firm part-time. He sold the Sunnyside firm also and has no connection to it beyond his name. To make matters slightly confusing, the Sunnyside office is owned by Newhouse's mother and her partner, Sharon Sheppard. "We have no plans to change the name," Sue Newhouse said of the Sunnyside office. "We're still Sattler & Associates."
