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.

often inundated with an abundance of water, the availability of that water for agriculture is limited to historic water rights that are publically documented.
Residents rescued as fire destroys North Bend home
Jan 29 2013, 5:28 PM
On his way to a house fire call around 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 25, a North Bend volunteer firefighter found it, just a few houses down from his own.
The fire was burning at a neighbor's home, in the 13600 block of 432nd Avenue Southeast, and the firefighter contacted a resident on the porch. He learned that another resident, disabled, was unable to evacuate. The firefighter then entered the home and rescued the occupant from the back bedroom, where the fire may have started.
All of the other occupants were able to evacuate themselves.
Burn ban lifted for King County
Jan 29 2013, 5:13 PM
The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency lifted the air quality burn ban in King County on January 21.
“We are lifting the burn bans in King and Snohomish Counties because winds are picking up and temperatures are warming,” said Dr. Phil Swartzendruber, agency forecaster. “But Pierce County is still under the influence of cold and calm conditions, which could cause pollution to build up in areas where wood-burning is common. We need to keep a Stage 1 burn ban in effect to protect air quality in those communities.”
Growing pains: Mount Si girls find lessons, tout team-work in narrow Mercer loss, Totems win | Slideshow
Jan 30 2013, 11:49 AM
Finding ways to come together and stay on top has been the Mount Si girls basketball team’s quest this past week.
The team took the lead but then struggled in the Wednsday, Jan. 23, home match with Mercer Island. But they put it all together on Friday, hosting Sammamish.
The Wildcats fell 55-46 on Wednesday. Mount Si led 32-25 at halftime, thanks to strong play by Madi Bevens in the first quarter—and the rest of the game—and a Grace Currie three-pointer. But Mercer Island steadily chiseled into that lead, and closed things out on the ‘Cats in the fourth quarter.
New RR crossing for North Bend’s Main Street
Jan 29 2013, 5:21 PM
A smoother, safer ride is the result of Northwest Railway Museum’s reconstructed rail crossing on Main Street in North Bend, finished last week,
This fix is mainly a road improvement, says Museum Executive Director Richard Anderson. However, a new welded rail installed as part of the project allows an increase in the warning time for the signals on Bendigo Boulevard.
The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission awarded a $20,000 grant toward the welded rail and its installation to allow the increase in warning time for Bendigo Boulevard.
Store-owning, piano-playing cop Paul Eng looks back on 25-year sheriff's career in North Bend
Jan 29 2013, 5:23 PM
North Bend’s longest-serving deputy had to make a tough call a few months back, when an old shoulder injury flared up and put him on sick leave. Did he nurse his shoulder back to health and come back for another two years of service in the community he loved and had served for nearly 25 years? Or did he sail off into the sunset of (early) retirement?
He chose the sunset, and for a lot of good reasons: He’s planning to follow his own advice of “don’t get old!”
Eng’s wife retired two years ago and he’s jealous that she gets to sleep in every morning; and he’s thinking about the future, both for himself, and the King County Sheriff’s Office.
