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.

Wildcat Workers was started to take financial pressure of sports off families. It’s become a win-win for the athletes, their team and local homeowners, says Worker parent Kathy Hyland.

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. Sun-baked Russian sage and Cape fuchsias flap in the wind of passing cars, and the ceanothus remains a vibrant blue, smelling faintly of lilac in the late August heat. 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.

The Snoqualmie Valley School District offers public hybrid and online programs for home-schoolers who want to use public education resources. The Parent Partnership Program (PPP) started at the beginning of the 2012-13 year to support families who chose to school their children at home, but wanted a partnership with local schools. The district provided a meeting place, classroom resources, a certificated teacher to teach classes and assist with student learning plans, and an opportunity for local families to network.

Rose, 16, knew that he wanted to do something for his own community for his Eagle project, because “I love the people here. I love this small town,” he said.

At age 6, I hated reading. The gray and white text blurred and my head hurt. Why did I have to read anyway? During silent reading time at school, I daydreamed. By the end of first grade, I was reading below grade level and my first-grade teacher thought I needed special education. My mom wasn’t against special needs programs, but she decided to try something else, first.

Snoqualmie Valley teachers may decide to strike on Wednesday, which is supposed to be the district's first day of school. The roughly 270 members of the Snoqualmie Valley Education Association meet Tuesday afternoon, to make that decision. The teachers' current contract expired Aug. 31, and the union and district have been negotiating the terms of a new contract for several months. Although the school district reports several agreements have been reached, the negotiations have stalled over issues of class size and teacher compensation. Last week's negotiations included an all-day mediation session last Thursday, followed by more negotiations on Friday.

Chaclacayans are a generous people. Celebrating the moment last Monday, Aug. 26, when their big Peruvian town became an official sister city to Snoqualmie, the delegation from Chaclacayo handed out gifts. Snoqualmie gave a city flag and key to the city. Chaclacayo responded in kind, but the gifts kept coming— commemorative key rings, a tiny, tooled leather hat, a replica stone head from their indigenous culture, and a full-size flag of the city, which reads “Sun, Friendship and Peace.”

Lava lamps and cushy chairs began appearing in classrooms last week, but Animal, the drummer in “The Muppet Show” band, looked like he’d always been at the new freshman campus of Mount Si High School. Perched on a wall-mounted projector in one of the science rooms, the stuffed toy, looked ready to welcome the district’s largest freshman class in years, maybe ever. About 475 students start their freshman year September 4 in the Snoqualmie Valley School District’s first freshman-only high school campus. That’s roughly the same number of students who were in the building last year, but then, it was a three-grade middle school, and one of three in the district.
