In an effort to improve safety, local fire departments are partnering to offer residents in the unincorporated areas of Carnation and Duvall (ZIP codes 98014 and 98019) free address signs.

The Duvall (Fire District 45) and Carnation (Eastside Fire & Rescue) fire departments, along with the Carnation-Duvall Citizen Corps Council are working with King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks Community Service Areas grant program to provide address signs for rural residents of these communities.

• Twin Peaks is the first new town to be established in the Snoqualmie Valley. But it looks like there’s a bit more depredation and intrigue going on there than we’re used to. Filming for “Northwest Passage,” a new murder mystery for ABC-TV, began February 21 at the Mar-T Cafe, and will include various locations in the Valley. The fictional town of Twin Peaks is a composite of Snoqualmie, North Bend, Fall City and Carnation. Dozens of locals will be immortalized as extras. The kids in Debbie Navarre’s high school drama class are all agog at the opportunity to act alongside Michael Ontkean, Kyle MacLachlin and Piper Laurie. Some business owners, however, aren’t happy with how the filming is being handled.

In the warmth of a lazy Monday evening, Alraune Chowdhury paints. She squeezes out fingernail length amounts of cobalt violet hue and phthalo blue onto ivory pallet paper. She mixes her colors with linseed oil until they glow and then carefully rounds the tip of her brush into a point. Leaning back in her chair, Alraune considers her nylon stretch canvas. A friend has commissioned her to paint a portrait of purple and blue dahlias. She glances at a freshly cut dahlia to right and strokes the curve of the petals. After dipping her moistened brush in the glistening oils, she brings a garden to life in her little studio overlooking Mount Si.
