A split vote on funding part of a business plan for Meadowbrook Farm Oct. 21 followed an expansive discussion among North Bend’s City Council on the city’s investment in, and obligation to, the historic property. The 460-acre farm sprawled along S.R. 202 between Snoqualmie and North Bend, is jointly owned, and funded at an annual amount of $20,000, by the two cities, along with a volunteer group, the Meadowbrook Farm Association.
Lots of family Halloween events, and one for the grown-ups, happen on Halloween day and night, this Friday, Oct. 31, in the Valley. A sampling includes:
When you change your clock this Sunday, Nov. 2, as Daylight Saving Time ends, Eastside Fire and Rescue urges you to change the batteries in your smoke detector. It’s a way of preventing fires. Smoke alarms have become such a common feature in our homes that it is easy to take them for granted.
While homeowners should consider flood insurance coverage in the event of a river or urban flooding, insurance alone isn’t enough. Proper planning is also vital to avoid major headaches, extra expense or tragic losses during a flood. Agents with Valley-based Hauglie Insurance advise residents to make a flood plan, which includes making sure family members know how to get out of the house and neighborhood, where to meet up and how to contact each other.
To raise awareness on Halloween safety, Snoqualmie firefighters will hand out hundreds of safety strobe balls in local neighborhoods of downtown and Snoqualmie Ridge on Friday, Oct. 31. These balls can be carried in hand and will help drivers spot trick-or-treaters. Parents could also add reflective tape to costumes so children will be more visible, especially for those kids planning to wear dark outfits.
