Last week, the planning commissions of North Bend and Snoqualmie, meeting jointly for the first time ever, voted to cooperate on comprehensive planning for the old Meadowbrook Farm property. The interest was stimulated by an ad hoc committee of citizens, who have met several times during the past few months. Included in the discussions were community development directors LeRoy Gmazel of Snoqualmie and Dave Conine of North Bend.

Time is drawing near as the Citizens for Better Schools (CBS) Foundation works feverishly to raise $50,000 for its 1991-92 awards programs. The group has conducted an exhaustive effort to encourage parents, business and community members to join forces to provide challenging programs for Snoqualmie Valley schoolchildren.

For the second time in a little more than six weeks a case of a stray bullet entering a Valley home has been reported. Last Sunday morning a spent .22 magnum bullet was found on a desk in the bedroom of Miss Devora Bayer who lives off the South Fork Road. She told the Sheriff’s investigating officers she could not be sure when it entered, except that it was during the night time or early morning hours when she was asleep.

Sixteen years ago Travis Everett of Fall City took flying lessons at the Issaquah Sky Ranch under the G.I. Bill. Since then he has averaged about half-a-million miles a year but no one will ever convince Everett that there is “nothing new under the sun,” for he has just completed another exciting trip, serving as first officer on the 727 that flew President Park Chung Hee of the Republic of Korea to the Manila Summit Conference.
