Someone asked me last week what I look for when I take a photo for the paper. Considering we're in the final days of our annual reader photo contest — entries due this Friday — it was timely and relevant. It was also something I should have talked about weeks ago.
Community Events, April 2016
Saturday was a busy day in Snoqualmie and North Bend. I think I forgot how many visitors the depots and the trains can bring to the Valley on a sunny day, until I drove through downtown Snoqualmie Saturday and saw the sidewalks stuffed with strollers, kids eating ice cream cones and parents watchful of traffic.
Libraries have been a recurring theme in a lot of my conversations lately. Where are they, should we highlight them in the Chamber of Commerce directory coming out in this week's paper or the visitor's guide next month, and if so, how much? And, behind that, just how important a part of the community is a library, anyway?
One of the most interesting things about community newspapers is the role they play in the events of the Valley. The newspaper is the witness of events for people who weren't there and the teacher who explains (or tries to) the larger impact of an event for everyone who could be affected by it.
Where are all of the people who supposedly voted in favor of legalizing marijuana in the Evergreen State?
