Life in dirt: New Carnation art show explores the simple and complex in local farms | Photo gallery
Feb 19 2013, 2:38 PM
A day on the farm can be an inspiration, and a life on the farm, even more so. It has been for painter Jean Bradbury a former Valley artist who spent the past two years painting Valley farms from a perspective closer to the ground.
"I wanted to see how it felt to surround myself in an environment that is completely gentle and nurturing," Bradbury wrote in an e-mail. "I do not paint man made things like buildings and cars. The natural shapes and complexities of plants and animals are so much richer in design than anything people can create."
Farming is also important to Lee Grumman, owner of Miller's Arts in Carnation -- "I'm the type of person who spends every moment in the soil," she says -- so she was thrilled when Bradbury asked her about hosting a show of her work at Miller's Arts, 4597 Tolt Ave, Carnation.
Counting the kids: Enrollment assumptions differ, may hold up bond issue for Snoqualmie Valley schools
Feb 19 2013, 2:40 PM
It’s a simple question, without a simple answer. How many students can the Snoqualmie Valley School District expect to be enrolled in coming years?
For budgeting and staffing purposes, it’s 5,949 full-time equivalent students next year. For facilities planning, according to last spring’s district capital facilities plan, it’s about 6,100 next year, and almost 7,000 by 2017.
For a bond campaign, the numbers are, some say, questionable.

NAMI Eastside hosts conference on children and mental illness
Feb 20 2013, 3:52 PM
The statistics from the National Alliance on Mental Illness are frightening: one in 10 children live with a serious mental or emotional disorder; fewer than half of children with a diagnosable mental disorder receive mental health services; suicide is the third leading cause of death for people ages 10 to 24.
Mental illness in children is often mistaken for a behavioral problem. Recognizing the difference is critical; the sooner the problem is identified, the sooner your child can get help.
NAMI Eastside, the East King County affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is hosting a free children’s conference, “Youth in Crisis” to help educate families, educators and clinicians about the symptoms of mental illness, Saturday, March 9, at Northshore Baptist Church, 10301 N.E. 145th in Kirkland.
