At the Feb. 28, 2013, meeting of District 410’s board, I inquired as to the status of teaching cursive in our schools. Although disappointed to learn of our lack of emphasis after teaching it in the third grade, I was somewhat encouraged by the board’s interest in the issue. Since then, I have talked to many persons, adults and students, about the use of cursive. Many of the adults had heard about the national trend of de-emphasizing cursive.

I must admit that I am still on an emotional high since our Snoqualmie Valley Historical Society’s 1940 community sing-along. What a thrill to have well over one hundred Valley neighbors gathered together for the sake of joined voices to celebrate and commemorate the pivotal time and heritage of 1940! We rarely gather together nowadays, except to confront issues or to take advantage of bargain sales. Neither was the case as joined voices were raised to recreate and celebrate our rich heritage of music in one of the more pivotal years in American history.

Thursday, Dec. 1, 1988: Responding to a single voice from the audience, Snoqualmie Mayor Jeanne Hansen stepped down from the panel taking testimony in formal hearings on Weyerhaeuser’s Snoqualmie Ridge proposal. John House, head of opposition group Friends of Snoqualmie Valley, noted that Hansen’s long employment with Weyerhaeuser—though not with the real estate branch involved in the proposal—could strain her ability to make an objective decision. Hansen offered to step down, and did so.

Pat's rules: After 31 years as Snoqualmie's attorney, local native Pat Anderson handing off legal duties for retirement
- posted Dec 4, 2013 at 12:50 PM
Pat Anderson's career has taken a number of twists and turns. One road, however, kept leading him home. As a young lawyer, Anderson lucked out and got a job advising the government of his home city. He's been doing that job for more than 30 years, and his legal mind has become one of the longest serving institutional memories of the city. "An attorney always represents a client," said Anderson. "I advise the mayor and council when asked for advice. But when they've made a decision, it's my responsibility to use all lawful means to implement their decision. That's what I've tried to do, throughout my career."

The three men from the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe didn’t speak much Spanish. The two visitors from Peru spoke hardly any English. But carvers know carvers, and the common, unspoken language of craft was enough to bring everyone together. This fall, the newest bonds to link Snoqualmie with its sister community in South America started to gel in a carving exchange between the visiting Peruvian artists and the craftsmen at the Tribe’s Snoqualmie carving barn.

New rules, effective in January, to protect land managed by King County Parks from illegal dumping would mean fines of up to $500 for those caught trashing public property. “People have told us that illegal dumping in our parks is a problem, and we have heard them loud and clear,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “Work to clean up illegal dumpsites takes time, money, and staff resources, which we would rather spend elsewhere.”
