Letters | Marriage referendum promotes freedom and families
Oct 15 2012, 8:03 AM
We find the well-funded opposition to Referendum 74, which allows marriage to all, very disturbing and surprising. It is difficult to understand how the commitment and love of one human being for another is a threat to anyone.
After over 35 years of marriage, we appreciate the value of a committed marriage and it would be very selfish and foolish of us to deny that opportunity to other citizens. R-74 promotes freedom, family, opportunity and equality, all core American (Republican and Democratic) values.

Winter prep: Keep your pets safe, dry this season
Oct 16 2012, 3:35 PM
As you stock up on winter supplies for yourself and your family, give a thought to any four-legged family members. Dogs, cats, horses and other animals need many of the same things people do in the winter, and a little more attention. Just like people, dogs and cats can be more susceptible to sickness in the winter.
For instance, pets should limit their time outdoors, even if they are outdoor animals. A consistently wet coat can keep an animal cold, even if the temperature rises, so all pets should have a warm, dry shelter that's out of the wind.

Different campus, same choices: Snoqualmie district to take high-level look at Freshman Center solutions this Thursday
Oct 16 2012, 4:13 PM
The 2013 freshman class may be going to a separate building from their older schoolmates, but they will have a true high school experience, say district administrators.
“They’re still Mount Si High School students,” said Vernie Newell, who gave a recent update on the proposed Freshman Learning Center to the Snoqualmie Valley School Board.
Newell, now principal at Snoqualmie Middle School, will serve as principal for the freshman branch when it takes over Snoqualmie Middle School next year.

Oct 16 2012, 4:20 PM
Trash and treasures alike were scooped up by Fish Festival participants Saturday, Sept. 22, but only the trash found its way to the bin. Mosaics, wood carvings, copper leaves and other beauties were toted to their new homes, in the hands of their finders, at the conclusion of what will probably be an annual river clean-up in Fall City.
“We think it was a very successful day,” said Sharlett Driggs, co-chair of the Fall City Arts-sponsored event. “Lots of smiles and shouts from people who found art treasures.”
