The following stories happened this week, 25 and 50 years ago, as reported in the Snoqualmie Valley Record. From the Record’s archives:

Thursday, Nov. 26, 1992

• The fate of exercise regimes throughout the Snoqualmie Valley are in limbo as the King County Council finalizes a budget that could mean cutbacks at Si View Pool. Council members had approved a 1993 preliminary budget item calling for 12 cities with county pools within their limits to chip in for management costs or sufferer budget cuts. The measure would save the county about $400,000.

• Gasoline contamination at Maskrod’s Corner in Snoqualmie has put on hold a $1.1 million project to improve safety conditions at the intersection. State Department of Transportation officials found high levels of gasoline contamination in soil and groundwater at the northeast corner of the intersection last month.

Thursday, Nov. 23, 1967

• Richard J. Hall, 53, of Grandview, escaped serious injury early Tuesday morning when he lost control of his car on an icy highway 90. Hall’s car left the road 17 miles east of North Bend and struck a stump, Trooper R.J. McClinton reported.

• Burglars climbed the enclosing wall, broke the door into the reception room, and stole $35 in cash from the Snoqualmie alley Clinic early last Friday morning, Town Marshal Buck Adcox reported. He said there was no apparent attempt to steal drugs or medicines. Many Drawers and files were pulled open and their contents strewn on the floor. The clinic lost primarily drugs in the last burglary there several months ago.
