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. 5, 1992

• When it comes to public officials and money, the line separating what’s proper from what’s improper can often be hazy. Take North Bend City Council member Mike Hasting, for example. He’s been told by the city to repay half of the money ha’s earned as a council member since late-1989. Hasting was granted a $150-a-month pay raise in December 1989.

• An audit of Snoqualmie finances asserts that the city improperly handled more than $11,000 in federal funds granted to it for the repair of the city’s storm water drainage system. In response, city officials maintain the problem was an accounting issue and not a law violation. They say Snoqualmie was hamstrung by the state regulations and debts owed to it.

Thursday, Nov. 2, 1967

• It may be an off-year election, but local issues were expected to stir enough interest in Valley voters to produce a high turnout at next Tuesday’s election. In the upper Valley, there seemed little doubt that a 12-man race for three seats on the District 410 School Board was creating the most interest. Town Council elections in Duvall, Carnation, North Bend, and Snoqualmie, with nearly all positions contested, are also drawing attention.

• This Thursday, the program for the Woman’s Society of Christian Service of the Snoqualmie United Methodist Church will be “Extremism in America Today” presented by Carol Peterson. The program will answer such questions as: What is extremism? What are its tactics? Who are the extremists? Are they dangerous? and What can we do to counter their influence?
