As the readers of this paper are aware, the North Bend City Council voted 6-1 on April 6 to allow the construction of a 55-foot high hotel south of I-90 at the Exit 31 interchange.
The Snoqualmie Valley Rotary Club would like to thank the community for responding to our request for tents for the people of Haiti.
On behalf of the Ward and McNeal families, we want to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the Snoqualmie Valley for helping us honor our fallen U.S. Marine, Lcpl. Eric L. Ward.

I’m very disappointed in the leaders in Snoqualmie. The idea of a community center has been voted down a couple times. This seems just like Obamacare. “Forget what the people want. We’ll do what we want.”
A hearing examiner ruled in 2002 that the area south of I-90 is a sensitive area and should be a 16-hour operation only. A four-story hotel would certainly not be a 16-hour operation.
I once heard the expression “Standing on the shoulders of giants.” I now understand what that means.The volunteering members of the Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church… Continue reading
