Three cows die in fast-moving Fall City barn fire | Out of the Past

The following items made the newspaper in the Valley 25 and 50 years ago. From the Valley Record archives:

Thursday, Feb. 2, 1989

• Despite reservations, the King County Council voted unanimously Monday to impose interim zoning in the Valley. County Executive Tim Hill signed the emergency measure, suggesting the change after a rush of subdivision applications at the end of 1988 proved landowners were reacting to a talk of a building moratorium.

• Members of the Snoqualmie Valley School District’s instructional materials selection committee are considering new curriculum, among them state-mandated AIDS safety materials.

Thursday, Feb. 6, 1964

• A barn on the Tasche-Schumacher farm, a mile out of Fall City on the Redmond road, was completely destroyed by fire. Mrs. Tasche said the children, playing in the yard just before the dinner hour, noticed smoke. The family hurriedly relocated 30 cattle. Steve, a sixth grader, tried in vain to start a tractor blocking one pen. The Tasches lost three cows.
