To bring attention to Halloween safety, Snoqualmie fire fighters will be visiting local neighborhoods on Thursday, Oct. 31, to hand out hundreds of safety strobe balls. These balls can be carried in hand and will help drivers spot trick-or-treaters. Parents could also add reflective tape to costumes so children will be more visible, especially for those kids planning to wear dark outfits.

The rain and wind didn’t stop disaster preparations in Tolt-MacDonald Park in Carnation. During the morning of Sept. 28, the radio call came in—“Injuries at the park”—setting in motion the Carnation-Duvall Citizen Corps response exercise. The exercise integrated Community Emergency Response Teams, Carnation-Duvall Medical Reserve Corps, and Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club, with King County Duvall Fire District 45, Eastside Fire & Rescue, Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and Valley General Hospital. Evaluators from the King County Office of Emergency Management said, “Good job.” Yes, there were some procedures with rough edges, but they will be smoother next time. Exercises help identify needed improvements.

Years of enduring flooding, and rebuilding, are etched in Snoqualmie’s downtown neighborhood. Residents who’ve been here more than a few years can point to the lines on the wall that mark high water. Locals anticipate the areas that flood first. And the city firefighters have the warning system down to a science. “We know floods,” says Snoqualmie Fire Chief Bob Rowe. “That’s one thing Snoqualmie is known for.”

The city has created an 18-question survey on community concerns and priorities, and encourages residents to complete the survey, either online, or on a paper copy, available at City Hall. The North Bend Council’s Public Safety Committee requested the survey, City Administrator Londi Lindell said, in response to citizens’ concerns about a seemingly growing number of homeless people and problems.

As a former Hospital employee, I can affirm firsthand the Snoqualmie Valley has greatly benefited from Hospital District Commissioner Kevin Hauglie and President Dick Jones’ brilliant —I would call it courageous—leadership these past six years. They have helped transform the then-struggling hospital into a thriving 21st century healthcare institution, well suited to the personality of the Valley and able to meet its growing needs well into the future.

Thursday, Oct. 27, 1988: Once again, the growth is concerning. The massive Snoqualmie Ridge proposal looms over Snoqualmie, and now a similar package is under similar study at North Bend. Frederick Peterson of Wahluke Farms last week submitted a 975-acre annexation request for land south of the city, extending to Wilderness Rim, which could encompass 2,700 homes.

Hunched over his guitar and grinning, red-faced, Austin Jenckes kicks out one, sometimes both of his booted feet as he plays. He’s more humble hometown boy than the rock star a capacity crowd has gathered to celebrate, and he’s the first to admit it. “I really appreciate all of you being here tonight,” Jenckes told a crowd of 950-plus at the Riverview School District offices in Duvall Oct. 24 for his surprise concert. “All of this is actually kind of freaking me out!”

On the field, Deven Lalgee and Jon Proctor are a pair of predators. The quarterback is their prey, and their hunt lasts only a few seconds when two opposing sets of linebackers collide. If the opposing quarterback sees Proctor coming and reacts, chances are that Lalgee is waiting behind him. Or vice versa. Other times, the Wildcat line and tackles flush the prey toward the two defensive linemen, and “We reap the rewards,” said Lalgee.

In a conversation last week, I asked the question, “Who doesn’t want much better education for our kids?” One response: “I know people who are satisfied with the way it is now, or whose kids are graduated and don’t care anymore, or who don’t expect a return on district investment with the present administration and school board.”

This year, Mount Si's offensive line benefits from decades of professional football experience in the person of Howard Mudd. A retired NFL player and longtime coach, Mudd has been working alongside the team since July. After "you've done something for a long time, know a lot about it, there's a need to give back," Mudd said. "That's what I'm doing. I give them some of my knowledge."

In a tight economy, the Si View Metropolitan Parks District has twice successfully gone to its voters to preserve its funding. This year is no different, in that Si View has a Prop. 1 on the ballot, but in terms of what Si View returns on that investment, it’s already been a lot different. “Have we expanded? Well, we really just refined what we currently run,” says Executive Director Travis Stombaugh. “We don’t have more offerings, but we serve more people. Each program has gotten bigger and bigger.”

You don’t just hop in a hovercraft and zoom away. “It takes a lot of training to be able to operate it,” explains firefighter Brett Krache, as he shows me the Fall City Fire District’s big fan-powered rescue craft. In some situations, like floods, it’s too dangerous to ply the Snoqualmie River with an outboard motor. So the department trains at ballfields and the river with the hovercraft. And that takes time.
