A season of shelter: Valley's winter refuge for the homeless wraps up first-year effort
Mar 08 2013, 1:57 PM
It had to be a faith community that opened the Valley’s first winter shelter for the homeless. Only a church could organize quickly enough, generate donations and recruit volunteers to open its doors while it still mattered.
“It’s cold out now,” said North Bend Police Chief Mark Toner in November, at the first meeting of community members that would become the Snoqualmie Valley Winter Shelter. “I want to take care of the people we’ve got right here in town, now.”
Toner organized the Nov. 6 meeting at the North Bend Community Church specifically to ask community members how to do that. “The city can’t do it, the sheriff can’t do it…” he said.

"Hopefully we can bring unity to our people," said Milan Gabel, Jr., one of the organizers, who hopes the meeting will lead to new Tribal Council elections and ultimately, an amended constitution."We do want to be able to amend the constitution, to bring the rest of them that are under an eighth (in)," Gabel said.

Mar 12 2013, 5:06 PM
Tattoo parlors are not allowed in North Bend, except in an employment park zone on the extreme eastern edge of the city. At least, that's what North Bend planning staff thought until tattoo artist David Herman, currently of Redmond, made plans to move to North Bend.
Herman, owner of Ambrosia Tattoo Gallery (www.tatguy.com), had planned to open his shop April 1 in a building on Ballarat Avenue, squarely in the city's Downtown Commercial zone, where such businesses are prohibited. However he also planned to live in the building, making his business a home-based business, and a legal one, according to the city's code.
