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

Thursday, Jan. 14, 1993

• After a protracted application process, a Fall City businessman is set to realize his dream, or at least part of it, by building a golf course along the Raging and Snoqualmie rivers. Following an inspirational trip to the courses in Scotland, Richard Rutledge set out to build an 18-hole course on 150 acres near Fall City. More than three years and $145,000 later, the dream has been pared down by environmental regulations to a nine-hole course on 81 acres.

• Babies in the Valley may soon be “pumping iron” with mom when Scott’s Tots opens Feb. 2. After seeing exercise and social programs for infants and toddlers in bigger cities but finding nothing comparable in the Valley, entrepreneur Carol Pavek decided to use her own education and experience to open a business catering to “stay-at-home” moms.

Thursday, Jan. 11, 1968

• R.B. Carmichael, a native of the Valley, will be the next Town Clerk of Snoqualmie following the retirement of Clerk Ed Opstad. Mayor Roy Anderson named Carmichael assistant Town Clerk treasurer at Monday nights’s council meeting. Carmichael has already assumed his duties.

• Snoqualmie residents who have not yet hooked on to the new sewer system were given three more months to do so without penalty by the town council. The new deadline is March 15. Town Clerk Ed Opstad told the council that cold weather, floods and lack of labor had kept many from hooking on to the system before now.
