- Mar 28, 2014 at 11:27AM
On Saturday, March 15, a caller reported to Snoqualmie Police that she was being harassed by a man in a car. She said she’d pulled off the road in the 46000 block of Southeast North Bend Way, North Bend, to rest and eat, when a beat-up white two-door car pulled up behind her and the driver began honking his horn, and yelling at the woman, calling her a tweaker.

The secret to making a good burger, according to Scott’s Dairy Freeze owner Ken Hearing, sounds a lot like advice to elected officials. “Paying attention,” Hearing says, is how a worker can get a consistently cooked, reliably juicy hamburger into a customer’s hands, and it seems to be his approach to running a city, too. Now in his third term as North Bend Mayor, Hearing won the Best of the Valley reader poll for both Best Elected Official, and for Best Burger. He’s got a little more experience in the burger category, since he’s owned Scott’s since 1990, and only been the mayor “10 years, two months, and 21 days,” but he also got a crash course in civic involvement, way back then.

Once, perhaps a century ago, this ochre-tinged iron hay bale pulley, shuttled huge bales of hay inside a Northwest barn. Today, it’s one of the prides of the collection at the Wild Hare Vintage and Antiques in Snoqualmie, where Joey and his partner Tami Smith buy and sell finds. Like many treasures, though, it’s here today, and gone tomorrow. That’s by design, says Tami.
