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.

As a candidate for the Snoqualmie Valley School Board who has pledged to reopen Snoqualmie Middle School, I would like to respond to a letter to the editor published on August 22, 2013, asking us to come together in support of closing Snoqualmie Middle School and converting it into an isolated ninth grade campus. The author apparently wants us to ignore the harm that this isolated ninth grade campus will inflict on more than one thousand students in our school district in order to try this risky experiment. For example, 450 middle school students from the former Snoqualmie Middle School will now be bused to schools far from their homes.

Here’s a man who comes to you with the education, training and life experiences to responsibly select and present the principles of safe and effective weapons use.

How does Snoqualmie Valley stack up? On the one hand, schools in the Snoqualmie Valley School District are high-achieving, award-winning institutions. On the other, they're desperately crowded and understaffed, with a high teacher turn-over rate because of low teacher salaries. How are these both true statements?

For Sophia Rouches, team co-captain, soccer is great for a reason. It's individual skill and team focus, together. "You can work on your foot skills and make yourself a better player, and it'll benefit the whole team. It makes them better players, by you playing hard," she said.
