Opinion | Slow but serious steps toward Valley schools’ brave new future
Nov 30 2012, 12:05 PM
Educationally, we’re entering a new era.
With the approval earlier this month, 3-0 with one abstention, of new middle school boundaries that split all Snoqualmie Valley School District students in grades six through eight between Chief Kanim Middle School and Twin Falls Middle School, the new direction in middle and secondary education in this Valley is solidifying.
Boundary approval is a concrete step in shuttering Snoqualmie Middle School and installing a freshman campus at that site. It’s part of a bold vision to fix crowding and drop-out rates at the high school. But what will it mean for middle schoolers? Here’s a short answer: Challenges. And more portables.
Letters | Conservation district needs your support
Nov 30 2012, 12:06 PM
As landowners of a forested parcel in King County, my wife and I have experienced first-hand the benefits provided by the landowner assistance programs offered through the King Conservation District.
In early 2012 with the help of King CD’s Landowner Incentive Program (LIP), we able to hire a forestry contractor to remove invasive weeds and plant 1,200-plus conifers on our property in the Duvall area. Not only does this benefit our property, but it also helps to promote better water quality now and into the future for the Snoqualmie Valley.

Bring on the Bolshoi: Preston girl off to study at world-class ballet company in Moscow
Nov 30 2012, 12:08 PM
Her small hand crammed into a pink ballet slipper, Chloe Heninger concentrates on her work, flexing the sole, and pushing out the toe. She’s only 13, and had, moments earlier, been talking animatedly about her favorite character in “Don Quixote,” a Spanish girl with lots of attitude. Stretching out her shoe, though, she reveals the passionate but serious dancer that she already is, but still hopes to become.
Chloe, the daughter of Wade Heninger and Kristin Bennett of Preston, is well on her way toward that goal, since she began her training with the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow last month.
She was offered a place in the academy in September, after she unknowingly auditioned for the spot during a three-week camp, the Bolshoi Ballet Academy Summer Intensive, in Connecticut last summer.
