"Our guys beat a good basketball team tonight," said Mount Si coach Steve Helm, following Mount Si's overtime battle Thursday, Jan. 31, at home.

Beyond the bus: Could transit options change for Lower Valley in SVT-Metro deal?
Feb 04 2013, 11:24 AM
The Route 922 bus doesn’t come through any more. It was never perfect, but David Egan still misses it.
A 26-year resident of this neighborhood west of Carnation, Egan has been “pretty much totally blind” for most his life. He doesn’t drive, and that’s made him beholden—more than he’d like— to his family and neighbors for rides.
“You always feel like you have to make it right for people,” Egan says. So, if he doesn’t want to ask around for a ride, there’s public transit—if and when he can get it.

For North Bend family, flames claim a house, but not a home
Feb 05 2013, 3:17 PM
There is no logic to what did and didn’t survive the devastating house fire that destroyed John and Freida Perazzo’s North Bend home Jan. 25. John’s half-melted driver’s license was found where it landed outside the next day, and Freida recovered a few bank cards, but the rest of his wallet was gone.
“He thought he lost his glasses,” said Freida, “but they found them out in the yard.”
Together, the couple and their granddaughter Latasha saved John’s brother Ronald from the fire, each of them dragging the disabled man part of the way to the front door, where volunteer firefighter Kevin Nolet took over.
But they lost nearly everything in the fire, including the sense of stability that came from living in the house for more than 50 years.
