They worked steadily in the brilliant sunshine, condensing what used to be the work of days into an early morning and a long afternoon. It could almost have been a scene from the olden days, or maybe the Old World, where small family-run wineries called in all their friends and relations to help put up the vintage.

Congressman Dave Reichert shed his jacket early in his talk Friday at the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce luncheon, but he hadn’t even gotten to the day’s hot topic. Reichert, U.S. Representative to the House for Washington’s 8th District, covered the recent government shut-down and debt ceiling vote (aggravated by party conflicts), tax reform (potentially from six tax brackets down to three), health insurance (look for more information), immigration reform (much needed), legalizing recreational marijuana (“Why are we telling our kids it’s OK to smoke pot when we’re trying to tell them it’s not OK to smoke cigarettes?”), and minimum wage legislation in the Senate (doesn’t have enough support to pass the House).
