Every night this winter, the Snoqualmie Valley Winter shelter opened its doors—first, at North Bend Community Church, then at Mount Si Lutheran, also in North Bend.

The couple that chops together: Timber sports give David and Annette Moses’ life together a sharper focus | Slideshow

  • Mar 21, 2013 at 11:33AM

Today is the first time that David Moses has jumped onto a springboard since a fateful day last summer. It was hard, but he took the leap in stride. After winning the Stihl Timbersports Series’ Western Qualifyer last spring, Moses’ hopes for a first-place trophy at nationals fell after he tore part of his Achilles tendon at the national championship last June. As he climbed a vertical log, his springboard slipped, dropping Moses. His leg slammed against a metal tree stand. Climbing back up, he found his ankle wouldn’t support him. But he fought on and competed the rest of the day. That meant last-place finishes in springboard, stock saw and the underhand chop. One legged, he finished ninth out of 10 competitors. “I stayed in it,” he said. “I could have been a finalist, easily. I did all that hard work, and then it ended.”

  • Mar 21, 2013 at 11:59AM

Steve McCulley calls it “the void.” It's the lack of concerned adults, caring peers and supportive activities in a youth’s life that can lead him or her down a risky path. “If you don't fill the void, they're out cruising around, unsupervised. Then they start dealing with me.” McCulley emphasises “me” in a tone that means it's in his capacity as police chief, as the arm of the law, and that he means business. It's a role he'd rather not have to take with young people.
