A massive planned expansion of dirty coal, mined from Montana, Wyoming, and Washington state, and shipped to Asia through five proposed northwest ports will threaten our ecosystem.

For more than 38 years, Mount Si Food Bank, run by area pastors, has been faithfully helping people in need around the Valley. Around 2008, the Snoqualmie Valley Ministerial Association (SVMA) appointed a management team to oversee operations of the food bank. While under this management, many donations were made to the food bank, a SVMA ministry.
We, the family of Emily Adcox, would like to thank family and friends who came to mom’s celebration of life on Saturday, Feb. 8, at the Snoqualmie Eagles. What a great turn out. Mom would have loved to have been there to see everyone. Thanks so much to Carmen, Cindy and Patti for all their help with the potluck, which gave us time to be with our family and friends. Also, the Snoqualmie Valley Eagles crew for your help also. We all appreciated all the help. Thanks again.
By all enrollment projections, the Snoqualmie Valley School District will need another elementary school by the 2016-2017 school year. Planning and design work for the building began last fall and has been paid for with school impact fees from the district’s capital facilities fund. In order to continue with the project, which would provide 29 more classrooms for our Valley’s growing number of children, the school board needs to commit to a bond to raise the estimated $35 million total project costs. Educating our youth is one of the best things we can do for our community.
On behalf of the Snoqualmie Valley Citizens for Schools, I am sending a hearty thank-you out to our community for overwhelmingly voting to approve the two four-year replacement levies that were on the February 11 election ballot. I am filled with pride that the level of support for our local schools has been affirmed with the passage of both the Education Programs & Operations (EP&O) and Technology Levies. Certification of the election results will be completed by King County on Feb. 25; however as of the writing of this letter on Feb, 13, each levy has received a 68 percent approval rate. (As of printing, the tech levy was 69 percent, operations levy, 67.7 percent).
