What end of the world? Real, scary life rolls onward | Opinion
Dec 19 2012, 4:08 PM
Thank heavens that last Saturday, I had a Christmas party to attend where real families and happy children celebrated each other’s company.
It was a moment free of violence, worry and fear, and felt like a breath of fresh air, a moment of the real, and an escape from a weekend of saturation news coverage of a national tragedy. I am thankful for that.
A week or so ago, it seemed like you couldn’t escape all the silliness over the December 21, 2012, end-of-the-world prophecies. Then, real madness happened.
More than its parts: Valley residents come together for massive One VOICE drive that helps hundreds
Dec 19 2012, 4:11 PM
The man who gave the present won’t ever meet the boy who received it.
But the One VOICE volunteers who discovered the thoughtfully assembled, carefully wrapped bag, meant for a teenage recipient and left under one of the Snoqualmie Valley Kiwanis Club’s Giving Trees last week, are certain that this gesture will be treasured.
The Bed, Bath and Beyond bag was tightly tied. Inside were a digital voice recorder, an LED microscope, magnetic dartboards and a travel alarm clock, among other presents.
Volunteers could tell the giver took his time.

Dec 20 2012, 10:17 AM
Due to the economic downturn, Sno Falls Credit Union recently made the difficult decision to close the Fall City branch office in the Hauglie Financial Building in Fall City on December 31, 2012.
Sno Falls continues to have full service offices in downtown Snoqualmie, Snoqualmie Ridge and North Bend. The Fall City staff members will continue to work from both the downtown Snoqualmie office and the Snoqualmie Ridge office, which are less than seven miles from Fall City.
Sno Falls Credit Union has served Valley residents financial needs for over 50 years. They are looking forward to a favorable economic environment where more members qualify for our competitive loans while reducing the loan losses. As the credit union's profits improve they hope to once again be in a place to take actions in reducing fees and increasing services.
Hometown slam: Team players step up to keep Mount Si boys basketball on roll
Dec 24 2012, 2:50 PM
Everybody had been waiting for this moment, and the home crowd roared when Tyler McCreadie got air in the fourth quarter of Mount Si's home win against Interlake.
Guard Jack Nelson was rushing to the basket in a classic fake-out, and McCreadie, on post, was in the corner, "ready to dive in if a guy makes it to the paint."
With all the defenders rushing on Nelson, the junior fired to his six-foot-eight classmate.
"He had this beautiful pass, behind his head," said McCreadie. "It's wide open. It's dunk or nothing."
McCreadie's slam was one highlight of a big night for the Wildcats, who sat out two important starters but still handled things, winning 79-50 on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
