Fall City's Daniel Pells spends our winter working in Antarctic summer | Slideshow
Jan 22 2013, 3:50 PM
Winter arrived in the Valley, with a splash. While Valley residents hunted up their fleece vests and wool socks, and readied themselves for cloudy skies, rain, and temperatures in the mid-40s to 50s, a Fall City man was enjoying summer at the other end of the world. Only he was wearing the fleece and wool, and looking forward to “shorts weather.”
“Last summer, we saw 34-, 36-degree weather, and at that point, I wasn’t wearing a parka, I was just wearing a fleece zip-up and some Carrharts work pants with longjohns,” Daniel Pells said, describing the six months he spent in Antarctica, ending in March, 2011.

More portables on Snoqualmie Valley school board agenda
Jan 22 2013, 3:43 PM
Seven new double-sized portable classrooms are up for discussion at the Jan. 24 meeting of the Snoqualmie Valley School Board. Originally on the board’s consent agenda for the Jan. 10 meeting, the portables were moved to the main agenda for further discussion by the board.
Six of the portables are intended for placement at Twin Falls Middle School and Chief Kanim Middle School, three each, to accommodate next year’s additional students from the former Snoqualmie Middle School. The seventh structure would go to Cascade View Elementary School, where enrollment is currently at 650 FTE students, and slightly more in actual students, because of half-day Kindergarten.
North Bend bans homeless camping on public grounds
Feb 06 2013, 10:24 AM
A new ordinance, making camping on city property a criminal offense, takes effect in North Bend next week. The ordinance, enacting the new Chapter 9.60 of North Bend Municipal Code, specifically refers to issues with homeless encampments, such as trash, human waste and discarded hypodermic needles.
Its adoption comes just weeks after an independent citizens group opened an emergency winter shelter for the homeless.
The new code prohibits sleeping in public places and, following amendments proposed by Councilman Ross Loudenback, it also prohibits starting fires on public property outside of specifically designated areas like park fire pits.
Upping the ante: FBI renews search for AK-47 bandit who hit NB bank, offers $100K reward
Jan 22 2013, 3:49 PM
As law enforcement followed the trail of the armed bank robber called the AK-47 Bandit, who robbed North Bend’s Chase bank last July 6, the amount of reward money has increased.
On Wednesday, January 16, at a press conference in Chino, Calif., the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced an unprecedented reward of $100,000 for information leading to the arrest of the man, described as white, 25 to 40 years old, between 5’10” and 6’ tall and with a stocky build.
The AK-47 Bandit is suspected in a series of five armed robberies in California, Washington and Idaho, and of shooting and severely injuring a Chino Police officer. The attacks on these banks were similar, involving a masked man, armed with an assault rifle, similar to an AK-47, with a sling and drum magazine, taking over the bank. In Chino, the suspect wore body armor and as he left the scene, he shot a police officer responding to the alarm. No injuries were reported in any of the other incidents.
Elk lessons: Valley groups work on ways to protect animals, homeowners, in the city they share | Photo gallery
Jan 24 2013, 10:06 AM
A group of North Bend home-owners is hoping to train the local elk herd to avoid their yards, in favor of a nearby swath of trees. Wildlife experts, though, are skeptical about their chances, and lack of intelligence has nothing to do with it.
Elk are smart, say Department of Fish and Wildlife Officer Chris Moszeter, and Jim Gildersleeve and Harold Erland of the Upper Snoqualmie Valley Elk Management Group.
So smart, they can work through almost any elk deterrent people have tried, including a locked gate to a fenced golf course.
