This week in Snoqualmie Valley history: New cops, surgeons, and North Bend's first traffic light
Jan 24 2013, 5:41 PM
Revisit stories from the past 25 and 50 years, as published in the pages of the Snoqualmie Valley Record. This week's entries include:
1963: • Paul J. McKay, District Highway Engineer, is going to recommend the installation of a traffic light at Bendigo and Highway 10 in North Bend. He’ll make the case next month to the State Highway Commission. Such a light could be turned on only during peak hours, but McKay makes the case that “we must make it possible for cars and pedestrians to cross the highway.”
Opinion | Outsmarting the ‘genius’ Valley elk
Jan 24 2013, 5:42 PM
Driving from Snoqualmie to North Bend a few weeks ago to see a show about a certain Hobbit, I had to slow down on Elk Tourism Row. That’s not an official title for State Route 202, but it’s a good descriptor for what happens when a two-lane highway must also accommodate parked cars on both lanes.
Dozens of folks—it’s impossible that they were all out-of-towners—had jumped out of their cars to witness a major conclave of elk on Meadowbrook Farm. Momentarily inconvenienced, my reactions jumped from impatience at the traffic jam to wonder at the sight. Why get upset? I thought. The elk were in the field, doing their thing. So were the camera-packing travelers.

Campbell, Kenney lead Cedarcrest basketball comeback for big win over rival
Jan 28 2013, 9:28 AM
Cedarcrest's varsity girls basketball team continues to find success, with two big wins last week, including a nailbiter in which leaders played hard.
On Tuesday, Jan. 22, number-seven state-ranked Cedarcrest hosted sixth--ranked Archbishop Murphy, with a 10-0 record, in a Cascade Conference matchup. At halftime, it was Archbishop Murphy leading 28-26. Cedarcrest got into foul trouble in the third quarter, and Murphy took a 12 point lead going into the start of the fourth quarter. But pressure defense by the Lady Red Wolves and nine points (including two three-point shots) by senior Kailyn Campbell ignited a Cedarcrest come back. With 26 seconds remaining and down by one, the Red Wolves ran a play and got the ball to their leading scorer, Susan Kenney. She took a jump shot in the key with four seconds remaining and drained it for the win, 50-49. Both teams are now tied for first place in the Cascade Conference. Kenney scored 19, Campbell added 13 and Sarah Stauffer had 11.

Know your water rights: Workshop for farmers, allies is Thursday in Carnation
Jan 28 2013, 9:40 AM
Water supply for the farmers of today and tomorrow is the topic of a workshop by Sno-Valley Tilth, Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance, Washington Land Trust and the King Conservation District, planned for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, at the Carnation Library.
One of the most important requirements to farm successfully in the Snoqualmie Valley is an available and dependable supply of irrigation water. Although the Valley is surrounded and
often inundated with an abundance of water, the availability of that water for agriculture is limited to historic water rights that are publically documented.
