The following items made the news 25 and 50 years ago in the Snoqualmie Valley, as reported in the Valley Record:
Thursday, June 1, 1989
• Conserve as much as you can: That’s the message locals sent to the Department of Natural Resources in a hearing on the new Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area, set to preserve 2,320 acres on Mount Si and Little Si.
• Eighteen graduates received diplomas from Two Rivers Alternative School.
Thursday, June 4, 1964
• A new attraction at the Fall City Derby Days, June 13, is a river race for two-person flat-bottomed boats. Twenty boats will enter.
• Lyle A. Meyers, dumpman, retired May 31 after employment of 24 years at Weyerhaeuser’s Snoqualmie Falls plant. He never missed a day of work due to injury.
• Jim Ticehurst, owner at Cascade Golf Course, opened on a busy Saturday minus an important ingredient: no golf balls. Thieves had broken in that night and looted balls, a game machine, a pistol and $18 in change.
