The city says the bill is flawed, and could ultimately shift the tax burden from tribes to all other city residents.

Continuity. That’s what I show the Cub Scouts, every time they tour our office. And that happens more often than you think. About half a dozen times a year, I open the door at our Snoqualmie office to groups of Tigers, Webelos and assorted Cubs, to help them earn their media badges. A badge entails a trip to a local media business, and since we’re the closest, many den moms and troop leaders come to us.

Harry Buhler of John L. Scott has retired from real estate after 41 years, 18 of it affiliated with the North Bend office. Prior to that, he was associate broker and manager of North Bend’s Eastside Realty office for 23 years. “How times have changed since I started selling real estate in 1973,” remembered Buhler. “Beginning that year, I would try to drum up business by going door-knocking in an attempt to obtain a listing. Back in those days, there was very little competition in real estate, as no agents would drive way up to North Bend or Snoqualmie. In meeting potential clients... I would ask if they were thinking about selling. Most were not. However, one neighbor down the street was thinking of selling. Sure enough, the neighbor was ready to sell. That was how I got my first real estate listing.
