The respect is what surprises Bjoern Gruetzmacher. “As a supervisor, I could provide people with the same insight and information,” he said. “But a postmaster could say the same thing,” and people will more readily believe it. The venerable title of a small-city postmaster carries weight, and Gruetzmacher knows this firsthand. After months of temporary supervisor gigs, he has a home in Snoqualmie—his first postmaster’s job.

An interesting contrast. That might be the phrase I’d use to describe the two police situations in the Upper and Lower Valley right now. At the same time as Snoqualmie is gearing up and hiring up to become the contract police agency for the city of North Bend, Carnation and Duvall are parting ways after nine years. There’s a huge question mark right now over who will cover Carnation residents, and how the city will pay for it all after next year. Duvall scooted after questioning the stability of a Carnation-contracted force, so who’s next? What will they bring to the table?
