Thursday, July 13, 1989

• A national search is on for Patty Meehan, 37, who was involved in a car accident in April in Circle, Mont., wandered off into a field and disappeared. Her parents have received thousands of reported sightings in Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana and Washington. In June, some of those calls came from the Valley. Someone who looks like Meehan was seen on State Route 202, the river bridge in Duvall, and at the Little Chalet restaurant in North Bend.

• Sawing machinery that cut enough logs to make 275,000 houses is being retired at Weyerhaeuser’s Snoqualmie Falls plant. The old head rig, in use since the plant opened in 1917, is getting a $200,000 conversion.

• King County Council says no to a proposed water district at Stillwater. Commissioner Scott Walker says it’s premature, and too many people asked not to be included.
