Out of the past: Merchants frown on left-turn lane, Carnation ponders police, Scout Cabin changes


The stories of the past 25 and 50 years, as published in the pages of the Snoqualmie Valley Record. This week's entries include:

Thursday, March 10, 1988

• The new left-turn-only lanes on North Bend Way may have slowed traffic and improved safety, but downtown merchants don’t appreciate it. They say the change has created dangerous driving situations, especially at the North Bend Boulevard intersection and the Shop-Rite entrance.

• Carnation’s City Council took a step toward providing permanent funding for the police department, but the final decision will be up to the voters in May. The new plan scraps an annual police levy, in favor of garbage and water tax increases, combined with savings for fire protection from the voter-approved merger with Fire Dist. 35 in November.

Thursday, March 14, 1963

• The Snoqualmie Valley Jaycees completed a 2-year project, beautifying the Scout Cabin in Snoqualmie. They spent more than $500 on the work, and a dedication is planned in April. The cabin was originally remodeled by the Kiwanis, and the cabin is owned by the town. Jaycees hold their meetings there.
