The following stories made the pages of the Snoqualmie Valley Record 25 and 50 years ago:

Thursday, March 30, 1989

• Harry Oestreich, former chairman and member of the school board, joined other School District 407 members in making their first public comment on the failed $9 million school bond for a new high school and remodel of TMS. Oestreich challenged foes to “get honest” and “forget tradition” when deciding how and where a new high school should be built.

Thursday, April 2, 1964

• A number of Valley-ites were among those who spent anxious hours last weekend, awaiting news of loved ones living in the Alaska area hard-hit by earthquakes and tidal waves on Friday.

• Trooper Russel Altvater investigated a chain-reaction accident 50 feet west of the North Bend on the highway to Snoqualmie. One driver stopped to turn left, the driver behind stopped, too, but the third plowed into the cars in front.
