There’s another way that you can get involved for health, and it will affect not just your own well-being, but that of thousand of people inside and outside this Valley.

In late December, the Snoqualmie Valley lost an iconic personality and community leader. I first met Tall Bill Blakely while filming the amazing theatrical performances at Fall City Elementary during the Tina Worthington era. Epic events like these take a huge amount of community support, and Tall Bill was a vital piece.

Questions, answers for Valley Schools primary: Four candidates—Busby, Hodgins, Kangas, Spring —weigh in on district changes

Snoqualmie Valley voters will choose from four school board candidates in the Aug. 6 primary election. Two incumbents, Marci Busby and Scott Hodgins, are running against challengers Stephen Kangas and David Spring for the District 4 school board seat. Another board seat, District 1, will be on the November ballot, but not on the primary, since only one candidate, Tavish MacLean filed for the position. The Record asked each of the candidates to state their position on some of the major issues coming before the board in the next term. Each candidate was asked four general questions, and one specific to their campaign message.

With the holidays past and families diving into activities to stay healthy this winter, Si View Community Center and Pool is buzzing with activity for all ages as the winter schedule begins. Northwest winters can be grey and cool, but it’s always warm at the Si View Pool. This may not the time that most of us are thinking of swim lessons, but it’s actually a good time to start, as classes at the pool have better availability now than they do in the summer time. Swim lessons are offered for all ages, infants to adults, as group or private lessons, twice weekly or Saturdays only.

Greens to houses: Developer, farmer group at odds over planned 18-house, farm project at Carnation's former Tall Chief Golf Course

In the Snoqualmie Valley, it’s tough to find a development proposal that doesn’t raise objections among farmers. Everything from clearing the land to building the roads and infrastructure to support a new neighborhood can increase the flooding downstream. Knowing all that, though, the team behind a proposed 18-home neighborhood near Fall City really thought they had a winner. “We’re only altering 22 acres of 200 acres of these lots,” for home construction, said Peter Hayes, consultant on a new housing and farming development on the former Tall Chief Golf Course.

On Thursday, July 11, the Snoqualmie Valley School District presented its first phase of implementing the “Curriculum Pathways and Benchmarks Policy 2423” to the school board, and it was greeted with wide applause. It’s an excellent step toward assisting students (and parents) with making informed choices about the ideal course map for students in grades 6 to 12, giving the best chance for achieving post-high school goals. Imagine taking a family road trip from Snoqualmie to Florida. Picture embarking without maps or a GPS. You would probably make some wrong turns, and would need to stop to ask for directions. Your trip may take longer, cost more, and require re-routing—making it impossible to arrive on-time. A map would have made the journey easier and faster than doing it on-the-fly, turn-by-turn – resulting in course corrections and false starts.

On June 24, the Snoqualmie City Council hosted a public hearing. Basically, the topic was affordable housing and tax exemptions. Imagine Housing wants to build 160 units on the Ridge. As a longtime resident and candidate for city council, I voiced some concerns about the project. Some have advised me to take a low profile on controversial issues. I can’t when I believe it could impact the city.

To qualify for the AP Honor Roll, districts must not only keep AP exam scores high, they must also show increased participation in AP classes, by 4, 6, or 11 percent, depending on the size of the district, over the past three years.

Traveling Washington with his son’s team, Snoqualmie Valley Little League President Roy Baunsgard watched boys play baseball among the rolling hills of the Yakima Valley and the wide horizons of Moses Lake. No place compared to home. Few vistas, he thought, had anything on the backdrop of Mount Si at the Little League’s home field, North Bend’s Torguson Park.
