  • Feb 28, 2014 at 3:18PM

Reichert was right to lift debt ceiling

  • Mar 3, 2014 at 8:44AM

Kudos to Congressman Dave Reichert for voting for the lifting of the debt ceiling, so that the United States can pay the bill for the spending the United States Congress has authorized. The debt ceiling is a law from the last century from when the United States was a small nation, not the superpower industrial and financial powerhouse of the world. If we don’t pay our bills and default on the debt we incur, we would collapse the world economy.

  • Mar 3, 2014 at 9:04AM

By all enrollment projections, the Snoqualmie Valley School District will need another elementary school by the 2016-2017 school year.
