New life for Preston’s wooden men: Valley couple restores long-neglected logger sign | Photo gallery

  • Oct 25, 2013 at 4:22PM

When a pumpkin disappeared from a Preston couple’s back deck earlier this month, they noticed its absence right away. Dawn, who prefers to keep her last name to herself, asked husband Lee, “Where’s my pumpkin?” They found it, when they reviewed their security camera footage and saw a bear cub stroll up to their house, help himself to the pumpkin, and roll it around on the ground for a while before disappearing with it behind a building. He was back a few minutes later, looking for more.

The Snoqualmie Police Chief is here, and he's taking you to lunch: Steve McCulley mingles with elementary students | Photo gallery

  • Oct 25, 2013 at 4:12PM

Some things, we can hope, will never change. Kids who raise their hands during presentations to ask questions, but instead tell stories are probably one of those things. So is the time-honored lunchroom tradition of swapping whatever’s on your tray or in your lunchbox for something else. Snoqualmie’s Police Chief Steve McCulley was reminded of both those things on his recent visit to Jennifer Gjurasic’s fourth-grade class at Snoqualmie Elementary School. He was there to thank the class, all of whom wrote thank-you notes to the local police and firefighters last month, on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington D.C.

The pumpkin people: Snoqualmie residents Jerri and Julie Johnson grow giants with love | Photo gallery

  • Oct 29, 2013 at 3:35PM

To Jerri Johnson, growing a pumpkin is a spiritual affair. He takes the same from-the-heart approach to all of the growing things in the garden that he and wife Julie tend every year. Maybe that’s why his pumpkins are so big. Both Johnsons work as house painters at their business, Falls Painting. At home, though, they’re both avid gardeners. Jerri started all of this with a carrot plant, then, as his green thumb matured, turned to corn, then a three-foot-wide garden patch. When Julie decided, several years ago, that she wanted a fish pond on their patch of ground, downhill from Snoqualmie Casino, he decided he got to have something new, too. So they planted a pumpkin patch.

Who stole my campaign sign? Snoqualmie Valley's election season marked by vanishing signs

  • Oct 29, 2013 at 3:29PM

It’s a spooky time of year for election signs. The ubiquitous “vote for” placards posted throughout the Valley have been mysteriously disappearing in places, never to be seen again. So what dark forces snatched up most of Marci Busby’s signs from Fall City two weeks ago, or picked off her opponent David Spring’s signs within the hour they were posted in a North Bend neighborhood? We’ll probably never know, because neither Snoqualmie nor North Bend police have received many reports on the disappearances—a typical sign costs under $5, so it’s hard to think of as a theft —and if they did, they wouldn’t have much to investigate.

  • Apr 28, 2014 at 9:42AM

I feel compelled to validate closure provided by the memorial service for baby Kimball at Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church, held last month.

Perhaps my words may help others, too. And those in trouble must know they are not alone.
