The searchers: Combing the wild places, Valley’s search and rescue teams always keep people in mind
Jan 22 2013, 1:37 PM
Over lunch at the North Bend Bar & Grill last Friday, Jan. 11 several customers had begun to notice the bright yellow King County Search and Rescue vehicle parked out back, and figured the two men in the corner were part of the effort. So it didn’t take long for the question to come up: Did they find the missing skydiver?
The answer was slow and deliberate. It had to be accurate and legal, and because it was about not just the subject of a cancelled mission, but also about his friends and family.
No, they hadn’t found him during the search mission, which was called off Sunday evening, Jan. 6, but the Guardian 2 helicopter had been in the air around Mount Si, looking for him that morning, in the first good flying weather of the week. That was officially all Glenn Wallace could say.
‘10 Essentials’: Valley searchers say simple kit can bring you home, safe
Jan 16 2013, 4:06 PM
On the next beautiful day, when you’re considering a nice long hike up Little Si, consider your safety first. Instead of grabbing a water bottle, granola bar and your mobile phone, grab your “10 essentials.”
The 10 essentials, as Glenn Wallace, spokesperson for King County Search and Rescue, calls them, are basic but vital.
“They don’t have to be expensive, and they don’t have to be big,” says Wallace, but you’ll want them with you in case the unexpected happens.
Letters | A change of heart on chickens as pets
Jan 17 2013, 10:30 AM
I am not particularly proud of what I am about to say. But I am going to say it.
I’ve been raising chickens for seven years, to present date, and I will admit, I learn my lessons the hard way. I’ve had more than my share of heartwarming experiences and heartbreaking moments, as well. I’ve seen a bloody massacre right before my eyes.

Opinion | Burglar arrest shows that when you bond with neighbors, the whole community benefits
Jan 17 2013, 10:36 AM
On our website this week are two articles that don’t seem related. Yet they are.
First, we meet Tia Borgioli, whose family has lived in Snoqualmie for two years, and who happens to be, through circumstance as well as by design and effort, deeply connected to her neighbors.
So connected, in fact, that she put herself in harm’s way to protect, not just her family, but her tightly-knit neighborhood. Tia did something that I think many others might not have the guts to do—confront two burglary suspects, demand to know their business, and then promptly call the cops. She braved a gun to the head in her effort to stop the threat of crime in her neighborhood.
