The calls are starting to stand out. If you pay attention to the police blotter, maybe you’ve noticed that a few folks need to take a chill pill before hitting the gas. On Tuesday, March 11, a man got out of his car in North Bend and chased another driver with a 2X4, after the person in front didn’t let him through a locking security gate at a local storage facility. The caller managed to outrun his lumber-brandishing pursuer.

What makes a business ‘the best’? Go behind the votes in the annual ‘Best of the Valley’ competition
It’s that time again, when I break out the pen and sign dozens of ‘Best of the Valley’ prize certificates. It’s great how people take our annual contest so seriously, and interesting to see how the results change, year to year.
Continuity. That’s what I show the Cub Scouts, every time they tour our office. And that happens more often than you think. About half a dozen times a year, I open the door at our Snoqualmie office to groups of Tigers, Webelos and assorted Cubs, to help them earn their media badges. A badge entails a trip to a local media business, and since we’re the closest, many den moms and troop leaders come to us.
A bump in the night, a suspicious vehicle parked out on the street, or that uncomfortable feeling you have when strange people show up periodically who don’t belong in the neighborhood. These are a few of the reasons why block watch programs, such as a neighborhood watch, are important to have.
The winter can seem like a crummy time to live in the Valley. All this cold and rain. Even our snow days are rainy. The news can get you down—fire, crime, taxes, shoddy winter Olympics construction. But before you really get down consider that there’s a lot of love that makes the Valley go round. With Valentine’s Day upon us, let me just chalk up the things that may brighten your heart, locally speaking.
