The following stories happened this week, 25 and 50 years ago, as reported in the Snoqualmie Valley Record. From the Record’s archives:

Thursday, Dec. 10, 1992

• A new tradition has been established in Valley sports. Standouts on the Cedarcrest athletic fields and die-hard fans will don crimson, gray and black as the new school colors next year when the high school opens. The color scheme was chosen by a committee of more than 40 students and approved recently by the Riverview School Board. The red wolf, one of the highest spirits in the Snoqualmie Tribe, according to principal Harry Vanikiotis, had already been selected as the mascot for the school.

• North Bend City Councilman Chris Roethle, who participated in much of the city’s late 1980s growth spurt and was involved in government under three mayors, has resigned from office. A 21-year employee for Puget Sound Power & Light Co., Roethle said he is resigning because he was recently promoted and his new responsibilities will make it difficult to continue serving as a public office.

Thursday, Dec. 7, 1967

• A fire set by an arsonist caused extensive damage to the State weighing station east of North Bend Monday morning. Damage was estimated at $7,200. A new radio and other equipment including scale gears and the big dial were heavily damaged. North Bend Fire Chief Gordon Weller said the fire appeared to have been deliberately started. The arsonist broke into the station through a rear window, set a mop ablaze then broke an oil line leading to a stove.

• North Bend’s Tift Haus Restaurant has been leased to a Seattle couple, Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Wilson, who will be moving to the North Bend area as soon as school is out next year. Don Tifft, the owner, said running the Tift Haus “has been a real pleasure,” and that he had nothing else definitely in mind immediately. The Wilsons are part owners of the Maverick Steakhouse in Lake City and will retain their interest in that facility.
