Letters | Si View Parks need your vote this election day
Nov 01 2012, 5:16 PM
Si View Metro Park District has a proposition on your voting ballot again this year, seeking renewal of part of its levy for next year. Since real estate values are still low, the state’s complicated tax formula has once again kicked in, and we need voter approval to keep operating at current levels. This is not a tax increase but a renewal of the current levy.

Letters | Why do we need to change the marriage law?
Nov 02 2012, 11:13 AM
Same-sex couples already enjoy all the same rights and benefits as married couples in Washington under the domestic partnerships, “Everything But Marriage,” law from 2009.
Why do we need to redefine the term marriage that has meant the same for people -a father (a man) and a mother (a woman)- for hundreds of years beyond nation, culture and religion. Would anyone take a "meatloaf" and say, this is now “zucchini bread"?
Letters | Keep the city safe with Prop. 1
Nov 02 2012, 11:19 AM
Friends and neighbors, we urge you to vote this November and we ask for your support for Snoqualmie Proposition 1, the public safety, streets and parks maintenance levy, to maintain current levels of outstanding fire, police and emergency medical services and maintain basic maintenance of streets, parks, and natural areas.
We believe that Proposition 1 is a balanced approach to citizen’s needs for city services, as expressed in the April 2012 citizen’s survey by EMC Research. The levy will maintain the “No Call Too Small” position for Snoqualmie police and firefighters, which rated very high on the survey. It will ensure response times will continue to be fast as the city continues to grow, which rated even higher.
Snoqualmie’s Prop. 1 sets the direction for the future of city services
Nov 02 2012, 11:20 AM
We don’t do snow very well in the Puget Sound region. Last January’s snowstorm was a tough time for a lot of people. The slick stuff snarled traffic and generally caused chaos throughout the region.
If you traveled to other Eastside cities, you noticed the humps of snow on the roads and tricky driving conditions. But the city of Snoqualmie’s streets were, by and large, different. The city kept the plows rolling throughout the storm, and the roads as safe as possible, even through the ice storm and the blackout that followed.

Cougar pride glows in Snoqualmie Valley grand and Washington State University student Jamie Brett's jack-o-lantern.
Brett, a 2010 Mount Si High School alumnus, carved the pumpkins—a Coug logo devouring a Husky helmet, then placed them on her balcony so other students in her apartment building could enjoy them.
A junior who is studying architecture, Brett takes a great amount of pride in her school.

New holiday drive to round up dollars, not turkeys, at Mount Si Food Bank
Nov 02 2012, 11:28 AM
Starting a new tradition can be challenging, but the Mount Si Food Bank knows how to handle a challenge.
Last year, the food bank solved its turkey problem -- more turkeys than freezer space -- by borrowing freezer space wherever they could find it.
"We had 'em at the Dairy Freeze, we had 'em at Sahara's Pizza, and some people had them at their homes," said Food Bank Director Heidi Dukich, adding "They're hard to store, they're like bowling balls."
