  • Jul 22, 2013 at 10:49AM

While snacking can be a great way to include more fruits and veggies in the diet, it can also lead to weight gain and unhealthy habits forming when done on an impulse. When the urge to snack strikes, ask yourself the following three questions to determine if you are actually hungry, or giving into an unhealthy craving or emotional need rather than physical hunger: 1. Do I feel hungry? Sounds like an easy enough question right? Often times we eat without truly taking the time to question whether or not we are really hungry.

Who stole my campaign sign? Snoqualmie Valley's election season marked by vanishing signs

  • Oct 29, 2013 at 3:29PM

It’s a spooky time of year for election signs. The ubiquitous “vote for” placards posted throughout the Valley have been mysteriously disappearing in places, never to be seen again. So what dark forces snatched up most of Marci Busby’s signs from Fall City two weeks ago, or picked off her opponent David Spring’s signs within the hour they were posted in a North Bend neighborhood? We’ll probably never know, because neither Snoqualmie nor North Bend police have received many reports on the disappearances—a typical sign costs under $5, so it’s hard to think of as a theft —and if they did, they wouldn’t have much to investigate.

  • Oct 29, 2013 at 3:35PM

To Jerri Johnson, growing a pumpkin is a spiritual affair. He takes the same from-the-heart approach to all of the growing things in the garden that he and wife Julie tend every year. Maybe that’s why his pumpkins are so big. Both Johnsons work as house painters at their business, Falls Painting. At home, though, they’re both avid gardeners. Jerri started all of this with a carrot plant, then, as his green thumb matured, turned to corn, then a three-foot-wide garden patch. When Julie decided, several years ago, that she wanted a fish pond on their patch of ground, downhill from Snoqualmie Casino, he decided he got to have something new, too. So they planted a pumpkin patch.
