Out of the past: Snoqualmie officials consider four-digit addressing; North Bend pedestrians take safety matters into their own hands

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

• Snoqualmie officials are nearing a consensus to change addresses throughout the city. Street names will stay the same, but addresses would change from the three-digit city number to a four-digit number corresponding to King County maps. The change is designed to coordinate Snoqualmie with a county numbering system to make it easier to locate addresses.

• Rick Scheuer was recently elected president of the Riverview School Board, replacing Cheri Stefani, who stepped down after three years. “Getting the Cedarcrest Plan fine-tuned and underway is our biggest goal,” said Scheuer. Other goals include moving the community-based Rivervision 2000 project beyond the organization stage, and reviewing facility needs and potential for bonds and levies.

• A number of drivers continue to ignore the supposed sanctity to pedestrians of North Bend’s crosswalks, a fact that gave Town Council concern this week. Councilman Lamar Gaines recounted an eyewitness story that gave people hope there might be a way to defend themselves without body armor. “A gentleman… in the crosswalk and a car buzzed right by him without even attempting to stop. He reached into his bag and grabbed a bottle of beer and christened that car before it could get by him.” The council decided to ask both the town police and the State Patrol to keep a sharp pencil handy for citations to those motorists who seem to use pedestrian crosswalks as target zones.
