Clerks, underage buyers feel the sting on the North Bend liquor sales patrol

  • Aug 21, 2013 at 4:40PM

Joe the Buyer (not his real name) struck out at six different North Bend stores recently when he tried to buy beer. Clerks quietly, sometimes apologetically, turned the 18-year-old away at groceries, convenience stores and gas stations time and again. The enforcement officers working with him on the sting began to have high hopes for the rest of the night. “If we get no buys tonight, that would be wonderful,” said Liquor Control Board officer Troy McCallister. He’s in street clothes, as is King County Sheriff’s Deputy Amy Jarboe, for the undercover operation, backed up by North Bend Police Chief Sgt. Mark Toner, in uniform.

Letters | Gun store in North Bend, what’s next?

  • Aug 21, 2013 at 4:31PM

I was thrilled to see the grand opening of the wonderful new assault weapon boutique perched in the center of family-friendly North Bend. How I’d love to be a fly on the wall (but not in scope range, please) as daddy explains to little Hayley how these weapons are capably used to vaporize living things. Hayley presses her nose to the window and sighs, “I think I’d still rather have a puppy.”

Staying sharp in Snoqualmie | Valley Record's Railroad Days Photo Gallery

  • Aug 21, 2013 at 4:00PM updated Aug 22, 2013 at 11:39AM

There’s a trick to throwing an axe—throwing it well, anyway— and it’s remembering to exhale. Sounds easy enough, but the dozen of us chosen for the honors during the timber sports demonstration put on by David and Annette Moses and family during Saturday’s Railroad Days festivities, can tell you otherwise. “Point your thumbs down the handle.” “Keep your hands together.” “Widen your stance.” “Throw on the exhale.” That’s what I got for training, then they put an axe into my inexpert hands and told me to go for it. And the audience — almost 200 people — got a good laugh, because the only thing I hit on my first two tries was dirt.

Letters | Give freshmen, center a chance to be successful

  • Aug 22, 2013 at 11:38AM

I am the parent of two fairly recent district graduates who have gone on to thrive in their respective colleges. I was active in my children’s schools at all levels as part of a wave of parents who created wonderful collaborations with school staff and each other to continually improve the school cultures for all involved (students, staff and parents). It was on the whole, a very positive and rewarding experience. I took this last year off to catch my breath but recently attended one of the bond focus groups and have had some conversations about what is going on in our district that seem to be the antithesis of what so many of us worked so hard to create.

Will Desler is there before the door opens. Ready to claim his prize in the King County Library System’s Summer Reading Program, he’s primed in a bright green Sounders jersey.
