Dec 28 2012, 1:01 PM
It very nearly could have been Mount Si’s second win of the week, but Liberty managed to pull ahead, and stay there, winning 52-44 at Mount Si on Friday, Dec. 21.
It was a good night, though, for several Mount Si players. Junior post Sally Nelson had eight points, senior Katy Lindor had seven, and senior Grace Currie had three. Sophomore shooting phenom Elizabeth Prewitt, playing with a cold, managed five points, a bit below her recent average. She logged 19 two days prior in Mount Si’s win over Interlake on Dec. 19. Lindor had 14 points in that game.
He couldn't watch a holy place burn: Fast thinking North Bend man douses church fire
Dec 28 2012, 12:28 PM
Ten days away from Christmas Eve, and the church was burning. Josh Hudson barely registered these thoughts before he had a new one: I can put out this fire.
He acted on that idea almost faster than he could think, but first he called 911 and reported seeing a small but growing fire at Cascade Covenant Church.
“It had just started, it wasn’t really burning too big,” Hudson said of the fire, at the church directly across the street from his house.

The consequences and risks of celebratory gunfire can be serious and the King County Sheriff’s Office is saying, 'Don’t do it!'

Clifford Kellogg of North Bend’s Riverbend neighborhood snapped a photo of this barred owl, which hit his glass door in an apparent attempt to have his wife’s merlin falcon, Pippy, for dinner.
Pippy was “perched on the dining room table, and the owl must have thought he might make a good meal,” says Kellogg.
Culture change: Valley move gives county permit department a whole new outlook on service
Dec 31 2012, 2:43 PM
“It’s breathtaking,” John Starbard says of his new view.
The snowy mountains that spring up outside his corner office just off the Snoqualmie Parkway are a far cry from the industrial hangars that greeted the director of King County’s Department of Permitting and Environmental Review only two months ago.
The county’s permit division has gone through some big changes lately. The former Department of Development and Environmental Services (DDES) changed names and locations, moving to a 22,000-square-foot second-floor space at 35030 Douglas Street on October 22.
A friend at the crossroads: North Bend's truck stop pastor, Tom Kemp, looks out for strangers
Jan 02 2013, 10:04 AM
Tom Kemp played Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, but he used the front door, not the chimney, when he came to call.
Sporting a Santa hat with a green ball-cap brim, Kemp strode through the lines of tractor-trailers parked at North Bend’s Travel Centers of America stop, a.k.a Truck Town. These trucks are the drivers’ homes when they’re on the road, and he hoped to brighten each one with a delivery of home-made cookies.
“We figure, if you’re here on the lot today (Christmas Eve), you won’t be home to get fresh-baked cookies on Christmas,” Kemp tells the drivers.
