The first-ever North Bend Blues Walk was a great success thanks to everyone involved. More than 1,200 people came out on Saturday, April 20, filling 13 venues downtown.

  • May 17, 2013 at 2:30PM

Letters| Did you know firefighters, medics are often volunteers?

  • May 17, 2013 at 2:27PM

Our family has lived in North Bend for the past 13 years and only found out last Friday night that the North Bend and Snoqualmie fire stations are run by a combination of paid firefighters and volunteer medics. My son got into a serious ATV accident early last Friday evening, and we called 911 for an ambulance. Eight men arrived to assist with the accident. One man explained that three were paid firefighters, and the rest were trained volunteers. They have families and careers, yet give their time to help people in their community. Due to lack of funding and a fire department founded on volunteers, our community now relies on these volunteers to provide a vital service.

Words to describe local artists Monty and Liam Wright: Humble, heartfelt and loaded with talent. These Snoqualmie Valley natives are father and son and enjoy their Scottish heritage as much as their love of music, writing and art. Monty recalls, “Liam’s love of art started in preschool when the teacher called me in to look at a comic strip titled ‘Butt Man’. It was literally a Butt with a cape and he had all these great adventures.” “He rode a dirt bike in one episode,” adds Liam. The teacher said he couldn’t continue the strip, but that didn’t stop Liam from exploring his creativity.

Good news and bad: Standing-room North Bend crowd discusses fears of crime, drugs and homeless at community meeting

It was regarding a drug dealer that he’d previously complained to the North Bend City Council and police about, a drug dealer who was now gone. “He did it,” Black said, pointing to North Bend’s Police Chief Mark Toner. He “got them out of there” in a few weeks’ time, Black said, but not alone. “You have to work as a team,” Black told the audience, nearly all of whom were tense after a recent series of break-ins and last Monday’s home invasion and homicide just outside the city. “Don’t be afraid, write plates down, call him, tell him—we are a community and a team—if you don’t, you are part of the problem."
