Tokul roundabout tit for tat? Tribe seeks scrutiny for Snoqualmie Falls road fix
Dec 21 2012, 12:23 PM
While the Snoqualmie Tribe’s hotel expansion plan is drawing scrutiny from Snoqualmie Mayor Matt Larson, that city’s upcoming Tokul roundabout is drawing notes of concern from the tribe’s leaders.
Tribal council members urged “caution and care” in the roundabout project, which revamps Highway 202 and could pave the way for new development near the Snoqualmie nation’s most sacred place.
Last Monday, Dec. 10, the Snoqualmie City Council approved a key piece of funding for the project, planned for the area between Snoqualmie Falls Park and the State Route 202 bridge. Construction of a single-lane roundabout would include storm drains, lights, pedestrian walkways, landscaping and offsite mitigation.

Roots art: Adi Hiensch, North Bend's resident carver, follows tradition—and his heart | Slideshow
Dec 21 2012, 12:32 PM
He’s almost 89 years old, but wood carver and painter Adi Hienzsch makes a point of getting out to his workshop every day. It’s not the holiday season that drives him, but the work itself.
In his Edelweiss Chalet studio lined with original paintings, hand-carved doors and statues serve as dividers, and colorful mushrooms and red-hatted gnomes (wurzenmänner, or “root men”) spill into the next room, keeping company with a six-foot cigar store Indian, carvings of the namesake flower and dozens of smaller plaques. There doesn’t seem to be room for anything more, but there is much more, in Adi’s mind.
When he walks in the workshop doors each day, he says “I already know something that I want to do. After I have it in my head, then it’s the drawing board.”

Counselor: Focus on what’s important to beat the winter blues
Dec 24 2012, 3:15 PM
Between the cold, wet weather and the shorter days, it’s easy to feel shut in and run down during the winter. As residents of the Valley can attest, sunny days are few and far between.
Lack of sunlight and feeling stuck indoors can make you feel alone, isolated and even depressed.
“We may be more impacted by winter weather than those outside the Valley because of our location on the western slope of the mountains,” Andrew Heintz, a licensed therapist and social worker for Snoqualmie Valley Hospital, said. “The increased cloud cover and low light exposure can be stressful for people.”
How we manage holiday pressures can also make a difference. Many people are stretched thin during the holidays by money and social obligations.
