Harley Brumbaugh can’t hear the 1950s hit song “Dear Hearts and Gentle People,” without a twinge of nostalgia. “For me, ‘Dear Hearts’ really has a feeling,” says Brumbaugh, North Bend’s longtime resident bandleader. The song reminds him of a home and a community that disappeared long ago.
Thursday, Oct. 22, 1964: A difficult task would be faced this week by anyone trying to convince a few Snoqualmie residents that the days of the Wild West are over.

I haven’t paid much attention to all the talk about the new Snoqualmie Hospital; and I don’t live in Snoqualmie or the Ridge. But lately I’ve had to drive past the I-90-Highway 18 interchange quite often, and most of the time when I pass it, there’s a long line of cars waiting to exit—in both directions. Once, I even had to be in the afternoon line of cars for 10 minutes, just to turn right onto the Parkway.
