Out of the past: So long, Carnation dump? Kids nearly cause a train crash, and the 46th fish derby

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, April 21, 1988

• Mount Si Fish & Game Club will sponsor the 46th annual Kids Fishing Derby. This is a once-a-year opportunity for young anglers, so have your folks get you down to Kimball and Coal creeks at sunrise.

• Carnation is the only city in the county, possibly the state, that runs its own landfill. Because of new state laws adopted in 1985, it may be unfeasible for Carnation to keep it open. It’ll need monitoring stations, a treatment system for leaks, and a liner.

Thursday, April 18, 1963

Two 16-year-old Snoqualmie boys are being held in the King County Youth Center, awaiting trial in juvenile court. The boys admitted they broke a switch lock on the Northern Pacific tracks and pushed a car from a spur track onto the main line. If a train had come along, it would have gone over a 10-foot embankment.

• An open house at Dave’s Jewelry in Snoqualmie brought an unexpected dividend for Mrs. Wayne Guthrie. She won a new wristwatch.
