Out of the Past: Mayor breaks tie on Si View development; Cars keep crashing at Maskrod's Corner

The following items made the news 25 and 50 years ago in the Snoqualmie Valley, as reported in the Valley Record:

Thursday, June 22, 1989

It was a most unusual North Bend city council meeting on June 6. In the end, the Si View planned development was approved on Mayor Fritz Ribary’s tiebreaking vote. Seconds later, there was a unanimous decision directing the city to pursue purchase of the golf course near Si View for development.

• The locally infamous Maskrod’s Corner (State Route 202 at Meadowbrook) was the scene of two more auto accidents. On June 12, a North Bend motorist failed to yield and struck a motorcyclist. A day later, a driver did the same, striking another car and sending a woman to the hospital with injured ribs.

Thursday, June 18, 1964

• The North Bend Volunteer Fire Department called a special meeting to decide policy on the emergency car. It had been used to transport a woman who had fallen to the hospital. But the car’s insurance doesn’t cover any use other than fire calls.
