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.”

Strange man, screaming, says it's his house; North Bend homeowner threatens to shoot | Snoqualmie Valley police blotter
Whose house? Late on Monday, Oct. 20, a caller in the 1000 block of Maloney Grove Avenue, North Bend, said a man was attempting to enter her home, screaming it was his house. The man, a red-headed Caucasian with facial hair, was attempting to open the front door when the caller’s husband confronted him. The subject tried to push his way inside, but couldn’t. He then went to the back door. The husband armed himself with a gun, and threatened to shoot the man if he came through the door. The subject returned to the front door, then walked away. Police had the resident secure his gun, then located the subject and took him into custody.

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.
