New county road opens in Novelty Hill area

  • Jul 3, 2013 at 12:05PM

After two years of construction, King County Road Services last week opened a new connection just south of Novelty Hill Road, a final segment expected to ease congestion, improve reliability and better link residential areas with Redmond, Bellevue and Seattle. Since December, drivers have traveled through new county roundabouts built on Novelty Hill and Union Hill roads. With the opening of this 800-foot-long segment, drivers now have a complete mile-long road between the two new roundabouts carrying north-south traffic to and from Redmond. With the new 195th/196th Avenue Northeast connection, some cars instead will be able to travel south through the new county roundabouts to reach Redmond on a parallel road.

New model farmer: Carnation's July 4 Grand Marshal Roger Thorson’s vision changes the game at century-old farm

  • Jul 4, 2013 at 9:00AM

Roger Thorson’s doing things on his 24-acre farm that his dairy-farming ancestors never dreamed of. There’s the 18 solar panels on top of his 103-year-old barn’s gift shop. And the greenhouse and community garden that raises food for local families. Or the hay loft that Thorson turned into a guesthouse-slash-workshop space. Thorson, who has gone beyond restoration at Carnation Tree Farm to stewardship for future generations, is the grand marshal of the 2013 Carnation Fourth of July Parade. When a thirty-something Thorson came here 36 years ago, it was to answer the call of duty to his family. Today, his role here is as a connector and a communicator of people-conscious values.

From ponds to people: Exploring Valley’s intricacy from the standpoint of a hometown intern

  • Jul 5, 2013 at 3:57PM

Ever since I was a little kid in my parent’s backyard, I have been incredibly curious. Each summer, the pond behind our house literally came alive. Wading out in the murky water, mud and frog egg sacks oozing through my toes, I watched tadpoles dart between my legs. How was it that a bunch of stuff that looked like tapioca could turn into fish, which then turn into frogs?

Letters| Let's save the North Bend movie theater

  • Jul 8, 2013 at 9:17AM

As a good citizen of North Bend, I think the theater should never ever shut down. I know the modern projector costs a lot, so I encourage people to donate money to the North Bend Theatre. Either way I'd go to the theater even if they played old movies. I personally don't care if the movies are old. If they raise their prices don't blame them, blame the movie industry.
