Gloria McNeely is five years shy of a century. She plans to make it, too, and 2020 isn’t that much of a stretch. McNelly was born on Feb. 12, 1919. She’s not only seen a lot, she’s done a lot, and made enough friends to warrant a 95th birthday celebration, held last Monday at Snoqualmie City Hall, put together by her local friends. The Snoqualmie resident is humble about all the attention, but takes it all with good grace, and a few tears.

Every story is a little different, but everyone inside this theater has got one. There’s Nell Engel of North Bend, a walker on Team Dy-No-Mites, who does Relay to make sure her two cute grandsons, Sawyer and Walker, can one day live without fear of cancer. Or Joe Dockery, behind the video camera a few rows back, who swapped stories of his video buddy, the late Bill Blakely, with me.

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.

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.

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. "I don't know if this board is capable of a (split) vote and unanimous action," said board member Dan Popp.

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.

About a dozen people spent a day in Snoqualmie last month bottling, labeling, packing and stacking roughly half of Sigillo Cellars’ output for the year. 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.
