Out of the past: Twin Peaks Fest falls flat despite more than 10,000 fans; Daylight thieves target Hearing Drug Store

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. 19, 1992

• A broken fire hydrant off Cedar Falls Road on Rattlesnake Ridge led to a two-hour road closure and the loss of electricity and water to area residents Nov. 12. Volunteer firefighters from North Bend, along with Sallal crew members and the King County Public Works Department, repaired the damage.

• Judging by the celebrity sightings and thousands of tourists and national media exposure, the Twin Peaks Fest last August was a great success. But judging by the revenues, the two-day fest fell flat. Between 10,000 and 25,000 tourists came through Snoqualmie and North Bend but the Snoqualmie Falls Chamber of Commerce raised only $5,000.

Thursday, Nov. 16, 1967

• Bill Staggs, a Meadowbrook resident, appealed a case of costly discrimination to the Snoqualmie Town Council. Staggs said that, for many years, he has paid a higher fire insurance rate than other residents because his house is 330 feet from the nearest fire hydrant. That’s 30 feet too far, according to the insurance company, Staggs said. This week, the council acted. Charles Peterson moved, Red Rasey seconded and the council agreed that the fire hydrant should be moved 30 feet nearer Staggs’ residence.

• Hearing’s Drug Store in Fall City, the target of a team of daylight thieves last May, was burglarized last Thursday morning, with some $150 in drugs missing. Valley drug stores have suffered more than any other business from thieves this year.
