The final approach through the tall grass was the biggest challenge for boys leader Devin Sharp. The senior, who finished first for Mount Si with a time of 18:36, 10th overall against Juanita and Sammamish on Wednesday, Sept. 25, had his first run on the course at Mountain Meadows Farm in North Bend. It’s the second year for the team on this scenic, rural location, and it tested Sharp and the rest of the team in many ways. At Mountain Meadows, bracing scenery competed for attention with tall grass and molehills.

In 2012, nearly 60,000 bicyclists and pedestrians using the roads and sidewalks were counted, according to volunteer counts across Washington State, but there are no records for Snoqualmie in 2012 because no one was out counting. This year, the Snoqualmie Planning Department hopes to change that.

Opinion | Trading convenience for security at Valley schools, or why North Bend Elementary’s Claggett Field was fenced

Times change, even for what is, for me, North Bend’s coolest place. Back when I lived in downtown North Bend, the open field between Two Rivers School and North Bend Elementary, also known as Claggett Field, was the most idyllic spot in town. True, it didn’t have EJ Roberts’ dry creek or walking path, or Si View’s public amenities. But it was closer to home, and its row of stately firs beckoned for book reads and Frisbee games on summer afternoons.

Success is less about having the right answers than it is about asking the right questions. Doubters, just take a look at Julie Steil. She started filming her own television show this spring. The Fall City woman wholesales most of her specialty cheeses to chefs in Seattle-area restaurants, and opens a retail shop on weekends. She sells out anyway, since she teaches cheese-making and students clear the shelves of, among other things, cheese-making supplies and her home-made cheesecake.
