A man who called our office last week had some words for us. Words about letters. “I’ve lived here forever,” said the local. He’s noticed how the Valley Record typically refers to the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge golf course using its acronym, and told us he didn’t know what the acronym means. Nobody that he knows knew what it means. Keep that in mind, he told us.
