Growing up with the paper: Fall City’s John Groshell gives a kids-eye view of the news biz

  • Nov 4, 2013 at 10:00AM updated Nov 5, 2013 at 8:53AM

He grew up in the business, but John Groshell never had printer’s ink in his veins, like his father. Maybe seeing how many printers had lost a finger or two during their careers—one of the presses was called the hand-snapper, after all—is what cooled his enthusiasm, or the challenge of writing something every week. Certainly it wasn’t sporty enough for the future golf pro, teacher, and now owner of the Snoqualmie Falls Golf Course.

Letters | Let’s all be adults and move on

  • Nov 5, 2013 at 9:57AM
