Forget what you think you know about cats getting stuck in trees, and just ask the experts. They’re the guys in climbing gear, not uniforms, and here in the Snoqualmie Valley, they’re probably named Shaun and Tom.

Snoqualmie goes all out for paperless bills

  • May 5, 2014 at 1:49PM

During 2014, the city of Snoqualmie has a goal to reduce the number of property owners receiving water utility bills in the mail by 33 percent and have them pay online instead. About 4,000 property owners receive water utility bills each month via US mail, equal to about 100 pounds of paper per month.

Looking for satisfaction, Mount Si holds off hungry Wolverines; Seniors get the goals | Photo Gallery

  • May 6, 2014 at 5:07PM

Both Mount Si seniors put in goals on Senior Night, in a win over the Bellevue Wolverines. Yet neither coach Darren Brown nor the players were resting on the laurels of their 3-1 win over an outnumbered team. “I’m not satisfied,” said junior midfielder Evan Betz. “We should have won by a lot more.” Within minutes of the start, a hand-ball called on a Bellevue player meant a red card that left the Wolverines a man short for virtually the entirety of the game. Senior midfielder Alex Dolewski took the penalty kick and sunk it to make it 1-0 just before the third minute.

  • May 7, 2014 at 11:00AM updated at 4:37PM

Valley Center Stage manager Gary Schwartz is an actor, producer, director, teacher, and voice artist, but an oracle? Maybe not, but a key decision he made in bringing the theater’s latest production to life is proving to be prophetic. His choice for directing and starring in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” was Alan Wilkie, a man who, like his character Pseudolus in the show, gets things done, no matter what lengths he must go to, or how silly things get.
