• “I’ve never missed a North Bend parade in 25 years,” claims Ed Lane, the number one horseman in the Snoqualmie Valley, named grand marshal of the Alpine Days parade for 1963. Lane, 80 years old, is retired from the Washington State Patrol and keeps busy on his “horse spread” just outside North Bend.

• Members of the Snoqualmie Volunteer Fire Department responded to nearly half a dozen fire calls in the space of four days, beginning with a brush fire that sent them racing to The Terrace at Snoqualmie Falls on Aug. 6.

Schusman, superintendent of Snoqualmie schools.
