The foundation of the home was blown out. The result: A tunnel open to any rat who wanted the good life, nesting in a bed of home insulation. Enter Alan LaBissoniere, who runs his own varmint-removal business, Frontier Pest Control. Down in a crawlspace, LaBissoniere was on a mission to stop the intruders.

  • Apr 29, 2013 at 9:29AM

Scared off by a burglar alarm, a man breaking into the North Bend Ace Hardware store early Thursday, April 18, left the store empty-handed. Security cameras in and around the building captured images of the man fleeing the store on a bicycle. The man broke a window to get into the store, presumably to rob it, at 4:45 a.m. last Thursday. As soon as he entered the building, the audible burglar alarm sounded and the man fled. It's not clear what he was looking for in the store, because he was inside so briefly, said North Bend Police Chief Mark Toner, one of the officers on the case. However, the alarm did its job.

Letters | Help Valley’s schools grow and prosper, cut out the undermining

  • Apr 30, 2013 at 11:52AM

As a forest manager for over 20 years, I appreciate the complexities of the ecosystem in which we are fortunate to live. A forest system involves a complex balance to grow and flourish — from ancient snow-capped mountaintops to the delicate forest floor in which young seedlings need nourishment to take root each year. I draw a similar analogy to the complexities of sustaining a healthy school system. It takes seasoned education professionals who can adapt to seasons of change, together with involved families and community support, to ensure our children have the “nourishment” and foundation they need to grow and prosper into contributing adults themselves.
