- Oct 1, 2013 at 4:26PM
The final approach through the tall grass was the biggest challenge for boys leader Devin Sharp. The senior, who finished first for Mount Si with a time of 18:36, 10th overall against Juanita and Sammamish on Wednesday, Sept. 25, had his first run on the course at Mountain Meadows Farm in North Bend. It’s the second year for the team on this scenic, rural location, and it tested Sharp and the rest of the team in many ways. At Mountain Meadows, bracing scenery competed for attention with tall grass and molehills.

The city of Duvall has ended contract negotiations with Carnation for shared police services between the two cities. Carnation City Manager Ken Carter confirmed Tuesday, Oct. 1, that the contract, which expires Dec. 31, will not be renegotiated.

Several council members expressed concern that they hadn’t known earlier about the staffing difficulties, but none opposed ending the negotiations.
Taming the waters: Navigating the shifting world of flood insurance with forum organizer Angie Donaldson
- Oct 1, 2013 at 4:08PM
Imagine you are holding a milkshake. Test its consistency by scooping up a spoonful and letting it drip back into the glass. Or, just dump it onto the floor and watch it splatter. What does it look like—a thick, blobby smear, or a watery splash on the floor and walls? Be specific, because your decision could be the difference between a flood insurance claim that’s covered, and one that’s rejected. Although that’s not exactly how claims are resolved, the milkshake imagery is part of flood insurance training, says Elizabeth Gildersleeve.

In the opposite corner, challenger Plan B, at $30 million for a sixth elementary school only was no featherweight, but it looked like one in contrast.

Opinion | Trading convenience for security at Valley schools, or why North Bend Elementary’s Claggett Field was fenced
- Oct 3, 2013 at 10:33AM
Times change, even for what is, for me, North Bend’s coolest place. Back when I lived in downtown North Bend, the open field between Two Rivers School and North Bend Elementary, also known as Claggett Field, was the most idyllic spot in town. True, it didn’t have EJ Roberts’ dry creek or walking path, or Si View’s public amenities. But it was closer to home, and its row of stately firs beckoned for book reads and Frisbee games on summer afternoons.

Success is less about having the right answers than it is about asking the right questions. Doubters, just take a look at Julie Steil. She started filming her own television show this spring. The Fall City woman wholesales most of her specialty cheeses to chefs in Seattle-area restaurants, and opens a retail shop on weekends. She sells out anyway, since she teaches cheese-making and students clear the shelves of, among other things, cheese-making supplies and her home-made cheesecake.
