Fall City boy dies of cancer

Boe Smith's more than five-year battle with leukemia came to an end Sept. 3 at 12:20 a.m. when the 13-year-old passed away in his Fall City home.

The Chief Kanim Middle School student would have been in seventh grade this year.

State plans roundabout

The Washington State Department of Transportation plans to build a roundabout at the intersection of Interstate 90 and state Route 202 that is scheduled for completion in fall 2007.

Nearly $1 million has been set aside to build the roundabout on the south side of I-90, just north of Ribary Way and the Forster Woods neighborhood. It would handle all traffic coming off and on the eastbound lanes of I-90's Exit 31, as well as traffic on SR 202 going to and from Ribary Way.

Athletic complex opens at MSHS

The Mount Si High School Athletic Complex, a $15-million facility, opened in time for the fall season.

The complex consists of a football/soccer field, track, track events/soccer field and baseball and softball fields with built-in batting cages.

Because the whole complex includes synthetic turf that is susceptible to staining and other damage by sticky substances, food and drinks are not allowed near the turf.
