The Kingfish. Tut. The Tri-Corner Department. These are some of the bygone bylines and columns that ran in the Snoqualmie Valley Record when the Valley and the world were very different places. We will celebrate the Valley Record’s 100th anniversary this fall, and are preparing a special collector’s publication, similar to our annual Visitor’s Guide, to give the occasion some ink and fanfare. It’s been fascinating to hear the stories of former staff—and there are a lot of them—and to go down memory lane with historians like Gardiner Vinnedge, president of the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum, which is also doing a retrospective on the newspaper.

Students at Carnation Elementary School, Riverview Learning Center and Tolt Middle School will practice emergency evacuation on Wednesday, Sept. 25. The annual drill teaches students what to do and where to go in case the Tolt Dam above the city breaks. The drill will start at 9:30 a.m., when both schools will sound air horn alarms, then students will be instructed to walk to the dam evacuation route on Entwistle Street. This year’s exercise is a partial drill, so not all middle-school students will participate. Also, students will walk only to the base of the Tolt Highlands Road, instead of proceeding up the road all the way to the shelter. Buses will pick up the students at Tolt Highlands Road and take them back to school.

In 2012, Brad Toft ran for Washington State Senate. His campaign for a high-level office made him an easy target for political attacks. Modern-day politics have often been described as a “dirty business” and this certainly proved true during the 2012 Senate campaign. The grueling pressure of last year’s Senate race seems to only have increased his desire to serve his community. During the past nine months Toft has been contributing to the community in many ways.
