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

Thursday, Oct. 15, 1992

• A public meeting at the Snoqualmie Middle School repeatedly raised the following two points: 1. Snoqualmie should keep its police department because the officers know the problems, the people, the history and they’ve proven their worth. 2. The city should look into either cutting or eliminating its police department because the money saved could be used for other cash-starved city departments. Some 80 area residents attended the meeting to discuss police cuts to help stave off an expected budget shortfall.

• Imagine a high school where your son or daughter can take two years worth of language in one year, has three 90-minute classes and sees the same teachers and advisers for 90 minutes every day. For many of the staff at Tolt high School, that has been a dream until now. The new Cedarcrest High School, scheduled to open in 1993, will feature many of these changes.

Thursday, Oct. 12, 1967

• For the second time in a month, thieves struck at Dave Sims’ Snoqualmie Pharmacy last week, and this time the job was professional, lengthy and distressingly complete. The earlier loss was the result of a quick daylight theft. Last week, burglars pried the rear door open, then helped themselves to “nearly every saleable drug in the store,” watches, cameras, a radio and Sims’ own hidden .38 pistol.

• A jury in the court of King County Superior Judge Henry Clay Agnew awarded Floyd Remlinger of Carnation $15,000 damages against the Seattle Water Department. Remlinger, based his suit on the results of construction of a Water Department dam on the Tolt’s south fork from 1959 to 1963. During the construction so much clay and silt was allowed to escape into the river that the lower banks of the river were sealed, and cut off Remlinger’s wells.
