Past Time

• Everyone in a small town is always happy when “one of our kids” gets a break, but are double happy when the break is deserved. The acceptance by the prestigious Goodman Conservatory of Steve Ferrill into the ranks is one of those times. The Lower Valley has followed Steve’s career in drama when he left the eighth grade after-school activities to star in an original production of “Jack and the Beanstalk” in Issaquah.

• Everyone in a small town is always happy when “one of our kids” gets a break, but are double happy when the break is deserved. The acceptance by the prestigious Goodman Conservatory of Steve Ferrill into the ranks is one of those times. The Lower Valley has followed Steve’s career in drama when he left the eighth grade after-school activities to star in an original production of “Jack and the Beanstalk” in Issaquah.

• The public and staff will have a say in the selection of a new superintendent for Snoqualmie Valley School District 410, the board announced.

• Karen Derwin, 25, of Snoqualmie is champion in her weight class in the 1983 Olympic national weight lifting championship, held May 21 in Milwaukee.

50 Years Ago

• Miss Marjorie Herndon, daughter of the Edward Herndons, is nearly recovered from severe burns she suffered in a freak accident. A triangle-shaped head scarf she was wearing burst into flames when the long point, dangling far down over her shoulders in back, came into contact with the burner of an electric plate. Within seconds, her family said, the scarf was ablaze, and Marjorie, thinking to prevent a fire in the house and at the same time becoming panic- stricken, rushed out of doors. The blaze was subdued, but not before she had sustained painful burns.

• There seems to be no end to the sorrow for Mrs. Elmer Craig of Harrah. Ten months ago, the Craigs’ five-year-old son Rickie was lost in the wilderness of Mount Baker while the family was camping out. It was four days before Rickie was found alive and in good condition by one of the hundreds of searchers. The shock of the ordeal bore heavily on the parents, and the father died suddenly of a heart attack a month later. On Memorial Day, tragedy struck again. Jackie, the eldest of the children, drowned in a private pond near the family home. Jackie would have been 12 on June 14.

• Quite a colony of would-be miners are gathering up the Tolt River. Some have erected tents, others, log cabins. Any available buildings are being occupied while they wait for the water to lower and snow to melt in the mountains, where they expect to find gold.

• A record crowd of friends gathered at the Fall City gym Wednesday evening, when Veva Palmer presented her pupils in a complimentary dance recital. The five baby girls were probably the hit of the evening.
