Letters | Valley Rotary Club to hold President’s Cup golf tournament at Tournament Players Club
Mar 04 2013, 10:32 AM
Last month, the Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley made a decision to move our signature fundraiser, being held June 3, 2013, from the Mount Si Golf Course to the TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge. This change reflects the club’s goal to retain its community partnerships while increasing its fundraising reach in the Puget Sound Region.
Matt Campbell and the Mount Si team have been great partners for 19 years. We are excited about this new undertaking, but we will miss the terrific service and familiarity of working with the Mount Si Golf Course on this event.
Our community needs local service organizations like Rotary now more than ever. I believe our club’s first obligation is to increase our ability to assist people in need.

Star sighting: Johnny Depp joins roster of celebrity actors to stop in small town of Carnation
Mar 05 2013, 4:42 PM
Keep your binoculars when you visit Carnation these days. The little city on the Snoqualmie and Tolt Rivers, population 1,905, seems to be ground zero for spectacular sightings.
Last week, the Internet was abuzz with news of movie star Johnny Depp (Captain Jack Sparrow in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series) being spotted in Carnation and later at the Salish Lodge on Snoqualmie Falls. Before that, there were stars Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church, filming scenes for the just-finished-filming "Lucky Them," (see related story) and before that, Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire) and company were seen filming the hobo story "You Can't Win" soon to be released. And who can forget January, 2012, when Bigfoot was in Carnation?
Lights, camera, action: Snoqualmie Valley is becoming a big draw for independent films | Photo gallery
Mar 05 2013, 4:53 PM
“Is this a movie movie, or is this a monster movie?”
That was a logical question in Carnation, which last year was the setting for the Syfy Channel’s made-for-TV movie “Bigfoot,” and Becca Hall, who teaches a children’s writing class in Carnation, was probably asking for a lot of residents.
“Lucky Them,” the movie in question, is an independent film directed by Seattle writer/director/producer Megan Griffiths (“Off Hours,” “Eden”), and starring Toni Collette (“Little Miss Sunshine,” “United States of Tara”) and Thomas Haden Church (“Sideways,” “Wings”).
