During 2014, the city of Snoqualmie has a goal to reduce the number of property owners receiving water utility bills in the mail by 33 percent and have them pay online instead. About 4,000 property owners receive water utility bills each month via US mail, equal to about 100 pounds of paper per month. If 33 percent of water customers switch to online payments, it would save 400 pounds of paper each year, one-fifth of a ton.

I love the sound of the train’s horn. There’s something so evocative about it—the announcement of a journey about to begin, or of the arrival of newcomers and merrymakers to our downtowns in North Bend and Snoqualmie.

Looking for satisfaction, Mount Si holds off hungry Wolverines; Seniors get the goals | Photo Gallery
- May 6, 2014 at 5:07PM
Both Mount Si seniors put in goals on Senior Night, in a win over the Bellevue Wolverines. Yet neither coach Darren Brown nor the players were resting on the laurels of their 3-1 win over an outnumbered team. “I’m not satisfied,” said junior midfielder Evan Betz. “We should have won by a lot more.” Within minutes of the start, a hand-ball called on a Bellevue player meant a red card that left the Wolverines a man short for virtually the entirety of the game. Senior midfielder Alex Dolewski took the penalty kick and sunk it to make it 1-0 just before the third minute.

It takes a lot of people and a lot of focus to build a stone church in just five days. OK, the church may be in miniature—the sanctuary can fit perhaps one small visitor—but it’s still real local granite, done much the way its models were built in Ireland 1,000 years ago. “We laugh about it being a church for a congregation of one,” said Alexandra Morosco, founding co-director of StoneFest, the instructional seminar hosted by Preston’s Marenakos Rock Center for the past decade. “But the design will be true to a style seen in that period.”

Forum for funny: Valley Center Stage’s first official musical is a goofy Roman classic | Photo Gallery

Valley Center Stage manager Gary Schwartz is an actor, producer, director, teacher, and voice artist, but an oracle? Maybe not, but a key decision he made in bringing the theater’s latest production to life is proving to be prophetic. His choice for directing and starring in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” was Alan Wilkie, a man who, like his character Pseudolus in the show, gets things done, no matter what lengths he must go to, or how silly things get.
