Out of the Past | Ridge won't be visible from Falls; O'Dell twins rock at sports
The following items made the news 25 and 50 years ago in the Snoqualmie Valley, as reported in the Valley Record:
Thursday, April 6, 1989
• Action was taken on one of the most controversial aspects of the massive “Snoqualmie Ridge” master-planned development. The council voted to restrict what will be visible of the development from the Falls viewpoint.
• Two hundred testified on the proposed Snoqualmie Valley Community Plan. Some urged the county to adopt the plan, proposed to keep the Valley generally rural. Others said it robs property owners of the chance to develop their land as they planned when they purchased it. King County Council members now have a momentous decision in front of them.
Thursday, April 9, 1964
• Donnie and Ronnie O’Dell have made names for themselves on the Mount Si football, basketball and track teams. Twin sons of Mr. and Mrs. Ray O’Dell, the pair have been instrumental in Mount Si’s recent strong seasons. Don, six feet tall and 180 pounds, has four inches and 40 pounds on his twin.
