Local talent and creativity is celebrated annually with the Wildcat Film Festival, the big-screen premiere of student films at the North Bend Theatre.

Adams nailed it, hitting a fielder’s choice grounder to second, and runner Evan Johnson made it safely to second, allowing Joey Cotto to cruise home for his second run.

Keeping the Valley’s cars on the road has been the way of things at Fall City’s Model Garage since 1923. Dennis Musga has owned and operated Fall City’s Model Garage, backed up by his manager and a crew of six mechanics, since 1985. The auto repair business is Musga’s career. Out of high school, he attended trade school at Renton Tech, training to be a mechanic. Musga served an apprenticeship at Ford and worked at the Ford dealership at Eastgate for 20 years. Then, he partnered with his Valley-resident brother-in-law to buy the Model Garage when the owners were retiring. Plenty of customers followed from the dealership, Musga said.

Thursday, May 19, 1988 • Local people will miss the parade, music, parachute jumpers and ping pong ball drop. But there will be plenty of arts and crafts in Snoqualmie this summer. Why the flimsier festival? The bottom-line reason is that the carnival is not coming to town. For the second year in a row.

You can find their names on the massive block of marble at the Snoqualmie Valley Veteran’s Memorial in downtown Snoqualmie. These are the men and women who gave their lives in service to the nation. Each generation, they came from the mill towns and neighborhoods of the Valley to answer the nation’s call. Their numbers, from World War II in particular, show the abundant, perhaps inordinately so, level of patriotism and service from what others might call small communities. Small, perhaps, but big in service.

It was not at all surprising to see Mary Miller form the group at her recent “Heart of the Valley” photo session into a giant peace sign. After all, Mary’s style is all about a laid-back love of all things Snoqualmie Valley. As I approached the crowd on the field, it was clear this this May 19 event was bigger than Mary’s first venture in 2012, despite the iffy weather.

Every Mount Si High School senior has been personally asked, by letter, to celebrate the end of high school safely. The letters, by fifth grade students throughout the district, asked the older students to not drink and drive, and to not ride with anyone who’d been drinking. It’s an annual tradition at Mount Si, and one that has enthusiastic support from the ASB members. This year a group of about 10 students read through more than 500 letters to choose the best one from each school for a special end-of-year honor, a day of limo rides and games for the writer.

It’s not just about you. That message, delivered as part of “Think and Drive” week at Mount Si High School was clear, even through the comedy of an impaired driver demonstration on the football field. Students in the bleachers laughed as their classmates and a teacher tried to drive a golf cart through a cone-marked course on the field while texting on their phones or wearing vision-impairing goggles Thursday, May 16. They also couldn’t help noticing another group of students lined up on the field, and quietly sitting down, one for each cone the drivers hit during their trials.

No matter what you want to plant – salad makings, welcoming front porch plants or a screen for your patio, you can plant some version of it in a container. All you need is an appropriate container and some soil. A successful container garden starts with good potting soil, complete with ample nutrients and good drainage. Certain materials will affect fertility and have an impact on drainage, so start with a soil that is labeled potting soil; if it has compost in it, even better. Then you'll need some slow-release fertilizer.
