• Once again, the growth is concerning. The massive Snoqualmie Ridge proposal looms over Snoqualmie, and now a similar package is under similar study at North Bend. Frederick Peterson of Wahluke Farms last week submitted a 975-acre annexation request for land south of the city, extending to Wilderness Rim, which could encompass 2,700 homes.

• Glen Friese, member of the National Association for the Preservation and Perpetuation of Storytelling, delighted two dozen kids who showed up at the Snoqualmie Library at his "Teddy Bear Read-In." Kids brought their teddies for a story.

• The Mount Si Wildcats unloaded an explosive offense and some tremendous blocking on their home field as they handed the Bellevue Wolverines their second loss of the season, a 19-6 drubbing.

• Jamaica—Lisbon—Gibraltar—Port Said—Melbourne. These are a few of the ports of call in the world cruise itinerary of Miss Mildred Winters of Snoqualmie, who departs Nov. 10 for a four-month voyage on the P&O liner Oransay. She will travel with her friend-by-correspondance, Frances Phelan of Las Vegas. It’ll be the first time they meet, face to face.
