First they felt it. Then they heard it. Many thought it was an earthquake. The blast that woke North Bend in the predawn darkness on Friday, April 25, was centered on the former Pizza Place restaurant at 540 East North Bend Way, shuttered for years but recently under remodel construction. Nothing of the restaurant was left after a huge explosion tore the building to bits, hurling beams and pipes dozens of feet in all directions, and coating much of North Bend, for a quarter of a mile or more in all directions, with bits of insulation and debris.

I haven’t paid much attention to all the talk about the new Snoqualmie Hospital; and I don’t live in Snoqualmie or the Ridge. But lately I’ve had to drive past the I-90-Highway 18 interchange quite often, and most of the time when I pass it, there’s a long line of cars waiting to exit—in both directions. Once, I even had to be in the afternoon line of cars for 10 minutes, just to turn right onto the Parkway.

I feel compelled to validate closure provided by the memorial service for baby Kimball at Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church, held last month. So touched by what must have been the struggle of this tiny baby girl, I wrote a poem which helped me process this loss, and need for more awareness to step up involvement in our communities. Perhaps my words may help others, too. And those in trouble must know they are not alone.

In their after-game huddle, Mount Si’s fastpitch team gave out praise in the form of claps. Seniors who held it down in last week’s road match against the Sammamish Totems earned double-claps. So did younger players who showed fire in defensive plays. The Mount Si team battling for a league first place rank doesn’t really have any superstars—there’s no telling in any given game who will surprise or make a big difference. That’s part of its key to success.
