T The year 1889 was a big one for the Valley. It was the year that Washington territory became the 42nd state. It was also the year that trains rolled into the Valley for the first time. Railroads transformed daily life for the people here, opening the local economy up to a wider world. The train came here mainly due to tourism—big city folk wanted to see the wonders of the Snoqualmie waterfall.

A young mother with a 1-year-old baby, Sarah Webb didn’t have a driver’s license. But she did have a bike. So, every morning last summer, she loaded her little son, Elliott, into a trailer, then hopped on her bike for the two-mile ride to Two Rivers School. “It took some getting used to,” Webb said of the commute. “But I needed to get to school.” Webb, like many of her classmates in the Two Rivers School Class of 2014, had to face a challenge to get to this moment.

It is Thanksgiving, and I have an overdue note of gratitude to those I have known in the Valley since July of 1984. Like everyone else in the world I have many roles; have doctored in the community, and am your neighbor, a parent and fellow consumer, too. Awkwardly, sometimes I am the person you have seen chasing her cows, or her horses, or the odd chicken herd down the main road. I now work on the Issaquah/Sammamish Plateau at Lakeside Family Physicians. It is a lovely, vibrant, clinic with marvelous partners and great staff.
