It is Thanksgiving, and I have an overdue note of gratitude to those I have known in the Valley since July of 1984. Like everyone else in the world I have many roles; have doctored in the community, and am your neighbor, a parent and fellow consumer, too. Awkwardly, sometimes I am the person you have seen chasing her cows, or her horses, or the odd chicken herd down the main road. I now work on the Issaquah/Sammamish Plateau at Lakeside Family Physicians. It is a lovely, vibrant, clinic with marvelous partners and great staff.

Heart of the nativity: North Bend couple shares their 300-plus collection of Christmas scenes with Eastside
- Dec 12, 2014 at 3:02PM
It’s not your typical nativity set. Brightly colored strips of aluminum—former Fanta, Coke and fruit juice cans—coalesce into a wiry-haired Mary, Joseph, Jesus, wise men and a crocodile. As nativity scenes go, it’s metallic, and hardly cute. This one is not exactly Diane Garding’s favorite.

“Compete” is the watchword for the Cedarcrest girls basketball team, to be led by three seniors, Megan Ditore, LuAnn Townley and Avery Rich. Ditore is the Red Wolves’ go-to shooter. Townley, who swung up her sophomore year, focused on defending (and getting Ditore the ball). Rich is at post. Like most Valley varsity returners, they are adjusting to being the leaders now—”It’s really weird to not have the seniors here,” Ditore said—yet they know what they need to do, and have been playing this game together since middle school. “We have each other,” Ditore said.

The love of the game. The connection with teammates. That is what Chase Cardon, Robert Cha and Kyle Walsh are here for. The three seniors, who have been part of Cedarcrest boys basketball through high school, were named leaders by their teammates. Cha was a scoring force last year, Walsh was a key starter, and Cardon also got significant minutes as a junior.
