Letter: Calling on city leaders to 
protect wild places

  • Sep 24, 2015 at 3:45PM

To the City Council members of North Bend and Snoqualmie: Over the last few years (since the moratorium on building lifted in North Bend) development in our valley skyrocketed under the guise of economic growth. These projects are presented as benign and necessary for the creation of jobs and tourism industry in the Snoqualmie Valley. While limited development can be economically productive, I want to tell you I am horrified by the irreverent destruction of our wild spaces.

Letter | Clearing up some confusion

  • Sep 11, 2015 at 11:57AM

There’s confusion about the word “origin”. The Snoqualmie’s origin is at the base of Mount Si; the tree they climbed down was removed by Weyerhaueser in the 1960s.

Letter | Lawsuits don’t help steelhead

The stated purpose of the Wild Fish Conservancy, The Conservation Angler, Wild Steelhead Coalition, and Native Fish Society is to eliminate hatchery plants of steelhead by establishing wild steelhead gene banks, and turn these rivers into catch and release fisheries.
