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

Oct. 22, 1992

• Jack McCullough, principal of Snoqualmie Middle School, recently won a two-day trip to the roof of the school when he challenged his students to raise more than $20,000 during a magazine sale for the student body government fund. Surprisingly enough, he made the challenge the day before the end of the drive. As a result, the educator recently spent Oct. 19 and 20 on the roof of the school, but said he “wasn’t surprised” by their efforts.

• Most people in the Valley remember Jim Satterlee well. Throughout the past 40 years, he has made an impression in many different ways on residents, their children and, in some cases, their grandchildren. The 66-year-old educator has left a truly lasting legacy for the rest of us to follow. On Saturday, Oct. 24, the man who was born in Fall City, graduated from Mount Si High and lived in North Bend for the past 41 years, will be recognized by his alma mater, Central Washington University, being inducted into its Hall of Fame.

Oct. 19, 1967

• Royal Brougham, veteran sports editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and one of the nation’s best-known sports figures, will speak at the Firemen’s Appreciation Dinner Oct. 25. Ken Langton, president of the North Bend Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors the appreciation banquet, said “having Royal Brougham as a featured speaker will make an enjoyable occasion even brighter.”

• Mr. and Mrs. Gene Buse are the new owners of the Stillwater Store three miles north of Carnation. The buses took over Oct. 6 from Mr. and Mrs. Jim Earle. Buse’s parents had the store from 1943 to 1946. Buse himself is in the construction business.

• Miss Evelyn Offield of North Bend has been selected 1967-68 Woman of Achievement by the Mt. Si Business and Professional Women’s Club. “Miss Offield is an outstanding resident of the Valley whose service in teaching, in church activities and many other areas, is recognized and appreciated by the entire community,” said BPW Selection Committee officials.
