Gun initiative goes too far | Letters

  • Oct 30, 2014 at 5:03PM

Please vote no on I-594. This bill is not about closing loopholes in purchases of firearms, but is about gun control, period. For instance, if I give my guns to my son for safekeeping while I am on vacation, we have broken the law. If I want to teach my wife safe gun handling at any place other than a shooting range, we are criminals. If I teach a youth group about gun safety and let them handle a gun, we are all criminals. That is not about closing loopholes.

To raise awareness on Halloween safety, Snoqualmie firefighters will hand out hundreds of safety strobe balls in local neighborhoods of downtown and Snoqualmie Ridge on Friday, Oct. 31.

Flood insurance 101: Understand your risk, reduce costs and increase home values

  • Oct 30, 2014 at 5:36PM

While homeowners should consider flood insurance coverage in the event of a river or urban flooding, insurance alone isn’t enough. Proper planning is also vital to avoid major headaches, extra expense or tragic losses during a flood. Agents with Valley-based Hauglie Insurance advise residents to make a flood plan, which includes making sure family members know how to get out of the house and neighborhood, where to meet up and how to contact each other.

When you change your clock this Sunday, Nov. 2, as Daylight Saving Time ends, Eastside Fire and Rescue urges you to change the batteries in your smoke detector. It’s a way of preventing fires. Smoke alarms have become such a common feature in our homes that it is easy to take them for granted.

One of a kind, times 3: North Bend triplets grow up to be surprisingly different

  • Oct 31, 2014 at 12:01PM

Telling the Woods triplets of North Bend apart these days is far easier than it was, say 17 and a half years ago. You could probably do it just by listening to them talk. “I’m the oldest,” says Ursula, adding after the briefest hesitation, “and the smartest, too.” “She says that all the time,” says Frank (his family calls him by his middle name, Lowell), imitating her, “You should listen to me, I’m the oldest.”

Friends to cats in high places: Canopy Cat Rescue team saves stranded kitties, frantic pet-owners

  • May 5, 2014 at 1:00PM updated May 7, 2014 at 11:00AM

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. If 33 percent of water customers switch to online payments, it would save 400 pounds of paper each year, one-fifth of a ton.

Editorial | Toot your horn to help 
bring a Valley original

  • May 5, 2014 at 1:48PM

I love the sound of the train’s horn. There’s something so evocative about it—the announcement of a journey about to begin, or of the arrival of newcomers and merrymakers to our downtowns in North Bend and Snoqualmie.

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.

Summit of stone: Preston’s StoneFest passes on living language of stone workers

  • May 6, 2014 at 5:00PM

It takes a lot of people and a lot of focus to build a stone church in just five days. OK, the church may be in miniature—the sanctuary can fit perhaps one small visitor—but it’s still real local granite, done much the way its models were built in Ireland 1,000 years ago. “We laugh about it being a church for a congregation of one,” said Alexandra Morosco, founding co-director of StoneFest, the instructional seminar hosted by Preston’s Marenakos Rock Center for the past decade. “But the design will be true to a style seen in that period.”
