Jay Berry's Gourmet Pizza and Pasta has found an interesting way to benefit the Susan G. Komen Cancer Foundation. For a $5 donation, customers can enter a drawing by filling out a "Who's Bra is Who's?" form correctly. Participants must match all five bras hanging in the restaurant to the employees to whom they belong. Those answering correctly are entered in a drawing. Prizes in the drawing include: dinner for two, free appetizers and free dessert. The restaurant has already raised more than $300 toward the cause and is hoping to collect $500. The contest will be conducted through the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

High-tech fire fighting

  • Oct 2, 2008 at 11:37AM

The Fall City Fire Department recently purchased a Thermal Imaging Unit (TIU). The unit, an MSA 5000, can detect heat sources as minute as a hand print left on a wall. It can be used to find people in smoke-filled rooms or look for hotspots in walls or ceilings. The purchase of the TIU was made available through a grant by Farmer's Insurance as part of the company's continuing community contributions program. Rick Schriver, president of Farmers Insurance of Washington, and Kevin Hauglie, Fall City Farmer's Insurance agent and fire department volunteer, were on hand for the presentation.
The TIU is completely self contained and shows hot spots as white in the display. Direct flame or high heat is shown as red. The Farmers Insurance Corporate Contributions Committee currently is lobbying the Legislature to provide funding to make more units available to fire departments. Currently, the city of Snoqualmie has one unit and Eastside Fire and Rescue has several.
