Building a better ballot: Elections never end for coming Valley company
Nov 06 2012, 1:52 PM
Election season will soon be over for most of us in the Snoqualmie Valley, but for one group of people soon to call Snoqualmie home, the election cycle never ends.
“There’s an election in this country every eight days, it turns out,” says Bryan Finney, president and founder of Democracy Live, Inc (www.democracylive.com).
His company, now based in Issaquah but relocating to Snoqualmie in the next month, is responsible for delivering accurate electronic ballots to U.S. voters around the world, using “cloud-based” technology in partnership with Microsoft. As of last Thursday, Nov. 1, he said Democracy Live was handling the ballots for more than 200 U.S. elections, with voters scattered among 92 countries and on every continent, including Antarctica.

Ruptured beaver dam leaves Valley family with a fine mess | Slideshow
Nov 06 2012, 2:10 PM
A steady stream of neighbors and spectators flowed past Bob and Suzanne Siko's swamped house Tuesday morning offering to run errands, bring coffee, or help in other ways, and all of the traffic, down and up the Northeast 124th Street hill south of Duvall, had to cut through standing water to get there. They also warily skirted the energetic little stream that was once again flowing near the Siko home, instead of into it.
"The stream would still be going right past my front door right now if we hadn't had all these people come out… we literally put the stream back in it's banks last night," said Bob Siko on Tuesday morning.

“So if the governor is like the president for the state, then what does the Legislature do?”
“How many Senators and Representatives do we vote for?”
“Why can’t we just pass the law?”
The rapid-fire questions in Kate Sharkey’s classroom last Monday, Oct. 29, could have been the outline for the class she was teaching. They might also pass for questions from actual voters, with a few exceptions.

Letters | A Dark Trail’s bright outcome
Nov 07 2012, 1:06 PM
Imagine asking a group of people to stay out on a dark trail for three hours and do it in the rain? Imagine asking young dancers to perform a difficult song in a parking lot with a light tower for stage lighting? Imagine having this happen with Snoqualmie Valley residents for two nights in a row as cast, crew and audience? It happened.
Imagine them enjoying it and wanting to do it next year. In this the second year’s performance of Night on a Dark Trail, the weather didn’t dampen our spirits. While some stayed home, those who attended saw a great show and raised roughly $4,400 for Mount Si Food Bank. It is great to have an idea for a community event, to make it a reality. It requires work and sacrifice from a great many willing individuals and sponsors.

Letters | Celebrate public education in the Valley next week
Nov 07 2012, 1:22 PM
The 91st American Education Week is November 11 to 17. First celebrated in 1919, the purpose of this nation-wide observance is to celebrate schools and highlight the importance of public education. Good schools and a first-rate system of education are fundamental to our country’s future as a democracy. If America is to remain the world’s model for discovery and innovation, its citizenry must be highly educated.
For communities like ours, excellent schools are a source of pride. Parents and community patrons understand the importance of schools and embrace the responsibility of educating the community’s children. A strong school system contributes to the health and vibrancy of the community. And for young people, education is the key to a successful and prosperous future. Education is essential if they are to fully realize their dreams and aspirations.
