Letters | Our family has been welcomed to the Valley
Dec 24 2012, 3:18 PM
My family and I are new residents of Washington state and the city of North Bend. We just wanted to say thank you to all those members of the North Bend and Snoqualmie communities who have made us feel very welcomed thus far.
Two of our daughters now attend Mount Si High School, where we have been welcomed and aided by Coach Joe Galagan and Ms. Betsy Evensen along with several other staff members. We look forward to their continued success at Mount Si. We also are very pleased to have become a part of Our Lady of Sorrows Church recently where Fr. Roy and several parishioners have made us feel right at home.
Holiday for the homeless: Valley churches, Salvation Army come together with food, gifts, and care
Dec 24 2012, 3:22 PM
The snow is blowing fiercely as Mike Walter hikes down Ballarat Avenue to the main road, a sandwichboard sign in hand reading “Free hot food.”
I am shivering, but this New York state native is bred to conditions much colder. In his sweatshirt, he’s plenty warm as he plops down the sign, hopefully to resist this wind as well as he does.
“I have a service heart,” says Walter, a North Bend Community Church member and a computer technician who can set his own hours. He’s out here to let people know, homeless and needy included, that someone cares about them on this frigid morning.
“People need a hot meal every now and then. If they’re not getting it for themselves, we’re more than happy to give it to them,” he says.

Following his dream: Snoqualmie Valley Hospital volunteer Volkman Gaussman pursues career with service
Dec 24 2012, 3:28 PM
Volunteers play a vital role at Snoqualmie Valley Hospital, contributing more than 200 hours each month of service.
Volkmar Gaussmann began volunteering for Snoqualmie Valley Hospital last January, fulfilling his requirement as a pre- med student with Bellevue College to increase his experience in the medical field. He plans to become a pediatric hospitalist.
“Every pre-med student has to volunteer at a hospital to show their interest in medicine,” Gaussmann said. “I chose Snoqualmie Valley Hospital because I couldn’t see myself in a larger hospital where I might not have as many opportunities to help out.”

Finding the light: Snoqualmie woman pens personal story of family’s transplant experience
Dec 24 2012, 3:45 PM
‘Catchlight’ is a term of the photographer’s art: “It’s the twinkle you see in a subject’s eye,” says Genevieve Ruth.
A portrait photographer by trade, and a Snoqualmie wife and mother, Ruth had to find the light in her own life when things turned dark for her family three years ago
At the time, her husband, Nate Gunderson, was in dire need of a heart transplant, after battling for his life against a severe bacterial infection.
For Genevieve, that experience, and the personal discoveries she made during her family’s journey to health, are the centerpiece in her first book, “Catchlight: Perspective Through an Optimistic Lens,” which also explores the true story of Nate’s transplant.
