Mount Si Senior Center shelter powers up with help from PSE, Rotary, North Bend, Cascade Covenant
Feb 22 2013, 12:46 PM
Storm-caused power outages in the Valley will pose a smaller threat to the less vulnerable in North Bend's vicinity, thanks to new grants that make Mount Si Senior Center a stronger emergency shelter.
Today, the Puget Sound Energy Foundation presented a check to The Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley for $20,000 for local shelter needs, during the club’s regular meeting at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.
The Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley applied for the Grant through the Foundation to equip the Mount Si Senior Center as an emergency warming shelter. The center has been designated by King County and the American Red Cross as an emergency shelter; However, it currently lacks the backup power generator and gas water heaters needed to fully operate in that capacity.

The stories of the past 25 and 50 years, as published in the pages of the Snoqualmie Valley Record. This week's entries include:
1988: There will probably be more jokes than baskets made on Saturday, Feb. 23, when the Fall City Kiwanis Club goes into battle with the Fall City Fire Department in their third annual basketball game. It seems that the firemen have a slight edge in both age and ability, having two straight victories against their competitors, but the good old Kiwanians promise to make those baskets somehow, even if they have to use a step-ladder.
Letters | Who was Jeanne Hansen? Learn about the woman that new park is named for
Feb 21 2013, 4:01 PM
The other day, I was with a small group of folks, whom I respect and trust, when the subject of naming public places in honor of prominent people came up. I was surprised that a few thought it was not a good idea, mainly because by the time these places are funded and constructed, who remembers them anyway? It was an honest point of view, albeit in the minority amongst us.
That got me to thinking about the future community park to be built on Phase II of the Snoqualmie Ridge. A small part of this 16-acre site is being used as a temporary dog walking area. A sign at the entrance annnounces this space as the future “Jeanne Hansen Community Park.”

Feb 21 2013, 4:07 PM
When King County Sheriff John Urquhart asked Councilman Ryan Kolodejchuk to stand with him at the Feb. 19 meeting of the North Bend Council, he was confused.
"What'd I do?" he asked a smiling council and audience, as he walked to the podium.
He figured it out when Urquhart started telling the council "a little story."
"Canine dogs and their partners are literally like partners," Urquhart said, and Kolodejchuk nodded, because he both agreed and remembered what he'd done.
