Paranormal activity: Snoqualmie couple lives comfortably amid spooky happenings at 1917 house | Photo gallery
Oct 31 2012, 5:24 PM
When they moved in, Cathy and Todd Gamble were both taken by the charms of their new Snoqualmie home.
But, from the very first moment, there were some signs that all is not normal at this 1917 Maple Avenue cottage.
“When I first walked into this house, I knew it was going to be our house,” Cathy said.
Todd, too, was happy with the place, and ready to move in. That was why he never told Cathy what he experienced when he first set foot inside.
On tour with a realtor, stepping in the front door, Todd experienced what might best be described as a vision.
Warts and all: While Nels Melgaard battles cancer, pumpkin patch returns to his nursery | Photo gallery
Oct 30 2012, 5:40 PM
The two Winnies found it together, a spooky greenish-grey gourd, just lying in the pumpkin patch, waiting to be discovered. Triumphantly, they both picked it up and showed it to their moms, but before an argument could begin about who got to keep it, both girls had said the other could have it, and moved on to find more traditional pumpkins.
It would have been a fun, if not a little disappointing, moment for pumpkin patch owner Nels Melgaard, if he’d been there.
“I bet we planted close to 30 varieties,” said the owner of the Nursery at Mount Si, who hasn’t been out to the patch much lately, not since his early-August diagnosis of colorectal cancer.

Letters | Honor our veterans; Exercise your precious right to vote
Oct 30 2012, 6:15 PM
Up until my early 20s, Veteran’s Day was a holiday listed on the calendar that meant that banks and post offices would be closed, and (hooray) a vacation day from school and not much more.
However, the impact of Veteran’s Day and the realization of the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve our country and protect our freedoms and particularly those who serve in time of war came home to me when my “little” step-brother Bob Montgomery, a Fall City boy, was killed in Viet Nam at the age of 18.
Letters | Marriage is open to all
Oct 31 2012, 3:54 PM
All Americans are free to engage in the institution of marriage, including members of the homosexual community. However like any time-honored institution in our society, certain criteria must be met in order to receive a marriage license.
One may marry any other consenting adult as long as they are not a close member of family, are not already married to someone else, and are not of the same gender (man and woman).
White coat, medical school for North Bend's Corey Lindberg
Nov 01 2012, 5:06 PM
Corey Lindberg of North Bend, Wash., received his white coat at the White Coat Ceremony at Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harrogate, Tenn., on September 29.
Lindberg is a first-year osteopathic medical student at LMU-DCOM. The White Coat Ceremony is a special ceremony designed to mark a student's entrance into medical school. The first White Coat Ceremony was held in 1993 at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons and is now a standard ritual in institutions of both allopathic and osteopathic medical education across the country. During the Ceremony, each medical student is presented and "robed" with his or her short white laboratory coat, formalizing and welcoming the student's entrance into the study of medicine.
Letters | North Bend man writing in vs. congressman
Nov 01 2012, 5:07 PM
I am a Marine Corps combat veteran who was wounded in action during the Vietnam War. I am also a disabled veteran who filed a new claim with the Veterans Administration more than 300 days ago and sadly, I’m still waiting for a final determination from the VA.
This is one of the primary reasons I am running for office as an independent write-in candidate, along with the fact I don’t believe Dave Reichert has been a strong enough advocate for other veterans as well as our Gold Star families.
Letters | Don’t tear down North Bend houses for a drug store
Nov 01 2012, 5:08 PM
It has come to my attention by the notice posted on Park Street and through other people that the houses on Bendigo and Park are to be torn down to put up a Bartell’s drug store.
Why do we need a Bartell’s drug store? We have pharmacies in Safeway and QFC. We don’t need a drug store. Those houses look very nice and provide a buffer between the Frankies Pizza plaza and the ACE hardware plaza. They are important to keep the small-town feel. To put a Bartell’s there would just make a long, run-on shopping complex from downtown to the bridge.
Si View Parks’ Prop. 1 preserves vital community services
Nov 01 2012, 5:09 PM
Last fall, I had the duty and the pleasure to witness Si View Metro Park District’s election night thrills.
Gathered around a table at Boxley’s, Si View commissioners, the director and a number of instructors and families, watched as the early results came in. Smiles broke out when they realized that the result was a landslide of support in favor of the two propositions guaranteeing them their tax levy support.

On Tuesday, Oct. 2, members of local Girl Scout Troop 43995 picked apples from a neighbor’s apple tree, with permission, to help the local food bank.
They ended up gathering enough apples to fill four produce boxes, then loaded them up in a wagon and took them to Mount Si Helping Hand Food Bank.
