It was a short, but awesome field trip. Snoqualmie Elementary students dressed for the weather, and for mud, worms, plants, tools, and more mud. They squelched through, dug up, and pretended to get stuck in mud up to their ankles, and teachers encouraged the nearly 400 kids who participated to rub the mud between their fingers, to get an idea of the texture they needed for planting.

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?

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.
