If your child suffers the same symptoms around the same time each year, they most likely have allergies.

Skip the toxic talk, let’s have a real social media conversation

  • Apr 21, 2014 at 12:01PM

The other day, I was reading about a planned visit by President Obama to the mudslide-devastated community of Oso, when I happened to scroll to the bottom of the page to read the comments. I’ve long been skeptical of most of the public comments and ‘facts’ I read on Web pages and social media, but this felt like a new low. From the very first comment, it was bickering, name calling, partisan fighting and point-scoring. Regardless of party, the fact that the leader of the nation is coming to pay respect and attention to this tragedy is noteworthy. The only dialogue we can have on this is a toxic one?

Crowd-funding project could protect North Bend's Middle Fork

  • Apr 22, 2014 at 5:10PM

Every year, thousands of hikers, kayakers, anglers, bikers and campers visit the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River. They come for the recreation, and for the remote beauty of a wilderness so close to home, about 30 miles from Seattle. Also every year, and some would argue because of those users, the narrow, winding road into and out of the popular destination develops more ruts and potholes, the trails get worn down and the riverbanks are peppered with bootleg trails, campsites and even toilets.
