Coming in from the cold: Advocates, charities nearly ready to open doors of Valley's first homeless shelter
Dec 04 2012, 4:27 PM
Two years ago, homelessness wasn't an issue in the Valley. At least, not publicly.
"This time last year, nobody knew there were homeless in the woods," says Owen Rooney, an advocate for the homeless through River Outreach.
But this fall, about 50 people, mostly from local churches, started talking about how to help these people, through the winter and beyond.
Today, the communities of North Bend, Fall City and Snoqualmie, are weeks away from their first homeless shelter and, with a modest preliminary budget of $43,000, it may not cost the cities anything.

Their time to shine: Mount Si gymnast veterans are ready for big season

Once you're a die-hard gymnast, there's no going back.
That's certainly the case for Mount Si's crop of seniors this winter.
Hannah Richmond, Elizabeth Holmes and Jessica Trotto have been on the varsity team all four years of high school.
Coach Jessica Easthope has watched them grow up in front of her eyes.
"They were all talented, as a person, which has only improved their gymnastics," she says. "They have all just blossomed."
