  • Aug 29, 2013 at 10:45AM

The following stories from 25 and 50 years ago made the pages of the Snoqualmie Valley Record. This week, from our archives: • The six-foot diameter Tolt water pipeline ruptured Monday about 11 a.m., about a half-mile west of the West Snoqualmie Valley Road, leaving Duvall water customers out of service. The road was closed to traffic from 124th Street to the Woodinville-Duvall Road after the break -- water cascading down to the hill to the Valley floor washed mud, rocks and debris across the roadway. It's too soon to tell what caused the break, but a bad seam may be to blame.

  • Aug 30, 2013 at 1:08PM

A small flourish of color and life wedged between a city street and a state highway, Fall City’s Totem Garden is one scrappy patch of ground.

Bees are about the only visitors to the garden right now, but as a stop on Fall City’s Art Walk, the place draws plenty of guests, and fans each year.
