Lorraine McConaghy, Public Historian with the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle, is the featured speaker at the Fall City Historical Society’s annual meeting, 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 21, at the Fall City Masonic Hall.
McConaghy will speak about “New Land, North of the Columbia,” her new book that explores the seminal moments of Washington’s history through primary documents—everything from marriage certificates and telegraph receipts to newspaper clippings, blueprints and fruit box labels.
To write it, she delved into the state’s many local archives. Setting out “to create an exhibit between bookcovers,” McConaghy packed a scanner to 50 different state archives, scanning more than 2,000 documents—“letters, menus, diary pages, every kind of public record.”

Oct 18 2012, 2:04 PM
Our hearts are full of the love you all have shown to us during Jerry’s passing. Your passion, kindness, and generosity will hold us up during this devastating time. You came with food, you came with support, you came to do anything that needed to be done to keep this family rolling.
Letters | What I wanted to say about Jerry
Oct 18 2012, 2:05 PM
Recently we lost our friend and town barber, Jerry Main. I didn’t have an opportunity to speak at his open house at the Eagles’ hall. I could barely even get in the back door. You couldn’t get near the front door. Jerry obviously had a lot of friends. If I had spoken at his memorial, I would have said something like this.
Harvest of hope: Valley farms, gleaners, volunteers come together to fight hunger
Oct 18 2012, 2:09 PM
There’s nothing quite like a vegetable freshly picked from the farm.
So says Benjamin Rasmus, a Rotary Club member and sometime harvester himself, who joined a half-dozen fellow Rotarians on an overcast day in September to pick beans on Carnation’s Oxbow Farm.
But these veggies aren’t for his plate. Rasmus hefts a boxful of green beans that are slated, today, for the Hopelink delivery truck and, eventually, the dinner plates of low income Valley residents.
Calling officer no. 7: North Bend adds extra Snoqualmie police officer
Oct 18 2012, 2:23 PM
No matter how they felt about North Bend's August decision to contract with Snoqualmie for police services, both cities' law enforcement leaders were pleased with the outcome of the city council's Oct. 2 vote.
In another split decision, the North Bend City Council committed to hiring a seventh officer under the Snoqualmie contract. The decision, at a cost of $143,000, will give the city one additional officer for patrols, special emphasis, or community-oriented policing projects, beyond the six officers specified for round-the-clock coverage in the original agreement.
