Fall City fourth graders try five-week experiment to cut food waste
Nov 21 2012, 11:22 AM
Whether it’s moldy cheese, limp celery or those long lost leftovers in the back of the fridge, the fact is that most households waste food that could have been eaten. The average American family of four tosses out more than 25 percent of the food they purchase, adding up to more than $1,600 a year per household.
To help prevent edible food waste locally, King County partnered with Fall City Elementary School to pilot an outreach program called Food: Too Good to Waste.

Answers to the big questions at Snoqualmie Y; Center’s first year earns hearty hurrah
Nov 21 2012, 11:33 AM
When the long-envisioned Snoqualmie Community Center began to gel two years ago in the form of a new Y on Snoqualmie Ridge, there were some questions to answer.
Some big ones: As both a Y, with paid memberships, and as a free civic center, how would the place serve two functions? And would Valley residents support it?
Eleven months after the Y’s grand opening last January, we have some answers, thanks to some eye-opening statistics shared by Director Dave Mayer.

Wildcat football team's historic ride ends at Tacoma | Photo gallery
Nov 27 2012, 3:51 PM
Mount Si's history-making arrival at the 3A state semi-final football game saw the Wildcats make a season-first impact on a tough foe. Mount Si beat Bellevue onto the scoreboard—a first for the Wolverines this season--but ended up falling, 37-7.
It was senior Joey Cotto who put up the Wildcat touchdown, collecting a pass from Nick Mitchell, at 6:45 in the first quarter. Cameron Van Winkle then delivered the kick.
In the first quarter, Bellevue elected to receive, and Cameron Van Winkle kicked it clear to the end zone, his standard procedure.
In their first drive, Mount Si's rushes were halted. A Van Winkle punt to Bellevue led to a fair catch fumble, recovered by Jimbo Davis.
Mount Si remodel under consideration; School board agrees freshman campus at SMS is temporary
Nov 26 2012, 10:31 AM
Already debating another school bond and forging ahead with plans for a freshman campus, the Snoqualmie Valley School Board this fall committed to a third facilities exploration, remodeling Mount Si High School.
The exploration, proposed at a September work session of the board, is rooted in the assumption that the Freshman Learning Center, planned to open for the next school year in Snoqualmie Middle School, will be only temporarily housed at SMS.
"We as a board have, fair agreement, on a comprehensive 9-12 high school, grades 9 through 12, and that we also have fair agreement that a freshman concept using the SMS building was short-term, and long-term, that concept needs to be on the same campus," said school board member Carolyn Simpson, reporting on a meeting she, board vice-president Scott Hodgins, and Superintent Joel Aune had with NAC architects in September.
Duvall seeks artists for centennial gateway
Nov 26 2012, 10:15 AM
The year 2013 will mark the city of Duvall’s centennial, and to commemorate the event, the city is seeking an artist or artists to create sculptures to be placed along a promenade leading to the historic railroad depot and McCormick Park.
The Duvall Cultural Commission is now accepting proposals for the project. The concept should include three or five sculptures, representing Duvall’s history, or the river theme, both of which were highlighted in public art during a 2008 Main Street remodel. The city wants to extend these themes to the park entrance.
