Out of the past: No Masons at Opstad, vehicular homicide, Fall City water fix
Stories from the past 25 and 50 years in the Snoqualmie Valley, from the pages of the Valley Record:
Thursday, April 14, 1988
• Citing concerns about offending community members, the Snoqualmie Valley School Board voted to cancel the laying of a Masonic cornerstone at the dedication of the new Opstad Elementary School April 16. The 3-2 vote surprised Masonic leaders, who wanted to honor Mason and former superintendent Edwin Opstad, for whom the school is named.
• North Bend man Harry Gladsjo was charged with two counts of vehicular homicide for allegedly driving under the influence and running a stop sign Feb. 19, causing the crash that killed Bard Stegner and his 12-year-old stepdaughter Ginger Cutright.
Thursday, April 11, 1963
• North Bend first-graders Vicki and John Travis, both 7, are related, but not siblings or cousins. Vicki is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs John Travis, and the aunt of classmate John.
• Water, water everywhere and every drop is fit to drink! In March, the last improvements were completed on Fall City’s water system. A second well was drilled to pump an extra 650 gallons of water per minute.
