Getting ahead of high water: King County Flood district seeks short-term fixes, long-term solutions in the Valley
Nov 07 2012, 1:57 PM

Guided by the hand signals of a construction worker, Cory Marvin of Auburn, and moved by the enormous strength of a Caterpillar-tracked hydraulic arm parked on the bank above, the huge stone settles into a precise position, to be locked into place and, it’s hoped, stay put for generations.
Marvin and fellow employees with Gary Merlino Construction of Seattle have been visible along Snoqualmie’s Park Avenue Southeast riverbank for a week. They’re doing the hard work in a $150,000 riverbank repair project for the King County Flood District that’s scheduled to last through November 20.

That's about the time that the victims, a couple in their 80s, returned to their home in the 12800 block of 412th Avenue S.E. after a short time out. They noticed several items missing when they returned, including their checkbook, some jewelry, and a .357 Magnum handgun. They began making calls, starting with the police.
