Bringing the heat: Season ends for legacy-setting Cedarcrest girls basketball team | Photo gallery

  • Feb 20, 2014 at 1:17PM

It’s not how the Cedarcrest Red Wolves girls basketball team wanted to end their season. Coming into districts as the number-one seed, they faced a sure-handed Bellingham team in a rousing home game. But Cedarcrest’s energy fired up too late Friday. Coupled with another loss Monday to Lake Washington, their season has ended. On Friday, Feb. 14, the girls struggled to come back from behind after Bellingham pushed to a lead, 38-25 at the half. A concerted charge against the Red Raiders had the home crowd on its feet, but the clock gave out, with the Red Wolves down by two, losing 65-63.

Snoqualmie school board agrees to agree on some aspects of bond proposal

  • Feb 21, 2014 at 12:12PM

A unanimous vote to put a bond on the ballot isn't essential, but it would be nice, said Snoqualmie Valley School Board members Feb. 6. What's more important, they felt, was a unified front in pitching the bond to the community. Whether they could reach unanimity on either point was the unresolved question of the night.

  • Feb 21, 2014 at 1:36PM

Marty and Chris Fagan have climbed mountains, run 30-, 50- and 100-mile races, and, last month they skied together to the South Pole, in wind chills as low as -50 degrees Fahrenheit. Extremes of the environment and endurance are familiar ground, maybe even favorites, for the North Bend couple, but what they really love, what motivates them, are simpler things: their 12-year-old son Keenan; the friends and community who helped them reach their South Pole goal; the chair that was waiting for each of them at the end.
