Opinion | Contrasts as Valley towns split, merge over police

  • Oct 21, 2013 at 4:22PM

An interesting contrast. That might be the phrase I’d use to describe the two police situations in the Upper and Lower Valley right now. At the same time as Snoqualmie is gearing up and hiring up to become the contract police agency for the city of North Bend, Carnation and Duvall are parting ways after nine years. There’s a huge question mark right now over who will cover Carnation residents, and how the city will pay for it all after next year. Duvall scooted after questioning the stability of a Carnation-contracted force, so who’s next? What will they bring to the table?

Valley doc: Help your child survive seasonal allergies

  • Apr 21, 2014 at 12:00PM

Spring is in the air! The budding trees, bright yellow daffodils and pollen dust on cars are obvious signs that allergy season is here. For children, who are generally outside more than adults, allergy season can be especially miserable. Allergies can start in children as early as three years old, and in rare cases, earlier. If your child suffers the same symptoms around the same time each year, they most likely have allergies.

Right place at the right time: Mount Si soccer team keeps ball in motion for strong win | Photo gallery

  • Oct 23, 2013 at 12:57PM

Michaela “KK” Wallace is a distributor—she’s all about sharing the ball. So she was understandably pleased with how the Mount Si varsity soccer team put away Sammamish, in last Tuesday’s road game. It wasn’t star power that led to the 6-0 win. Rather, six different Wildcats, fed by five teammates, made the net last Tuesday in a physical, rough-and-tumble match. “I love seeing a game where we have six people scoring,” said Wallace.

  • Apr 21, 2014 at 12:01PM

The other day, I was reading about a planned visit by President Obama to the mudslide-devastated community of Oso, when I happened to scroll to the bottom of the page to read the comments. I’ve long been skeptical of most of the public comments and ‘facts’ I read on Web pages and social media, but this felt like a new low. From the very first comment, it was bickering, name calling, partisan fighting and point-scoring. Regardless of party, the fact that the leader of the nation is coming to pay respect and attention to this tragedy is noteworthy. The only dialogue we can have on this is a toxic one?
