From left are carver Jacob Mullen, Snoqualmie Sister City Association President Tina McCollum, Thomas, a former volunteer carver, carving leader John Mullen, Peru carvers Javier Claudio Ramirez and José Sanchez Abanto, and Peruvian Consul Gen. Miguel Velasquez. Below, Jacob and John Mullen examine the carved reliefs that the Peruvians brought to Snoqualmie. The carver’s connection Pat Anderson’s career has taken a number of twists and turns. One road, however, kept leading him home. As a young lawyer, Anderson lucked out and got a job advising the government of his home city. He’s been doing that job for more than 30 years, and his legal mind has become one of the longest serving institutional memories of the city. “An attorney PAT ANDERSON always repreSnoqualmie City sents a client,” said Anderson in an Attorney interview last week. “I advise the mayor and council when asked for advice. But when they’ve made a decision, it’s my responsibility to use all lawful means to implement their decision. That’s what I’ve tried to do, throughout my career.” SEE ANDERSON, 15 Hunter dies in shooting accident Exchange between Tribe’s crafters, Peruvian artist adds new ideas for sister cities A hunter apparently died of an accidental shooting Saturday evening, Nov. 30, near Duvall. According to a report from the King County Sheriff’s Office, at about 9:20 p.m., a sheriff’s deputy was conducting an area check of a trailhead near the 17000 block of the Northeast DuvallMonroe Road. As he entered the trailhead, he found a man who was dead next to his vehicle, with a visible gunshot wound to the chest. It appeared that the man had accidentally shot himself, as he was putting away his hunting gear after a day of hunting. The sheriff’s office has not yet released the man’s age and hometown. BY SETH TRUSCOTT Editor The three men from the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe didn’t speak much Spanish. The two visitors from Peru spoke hardly any English. But carvers know carvers, and the common, unspoken language of craft was enough to bring everyone together. This fall, the newest bonds to link Snoqualmie with its sister community in South America started to gel in a carving exchange between the visiting Peruvian artists and the craftsmen at the Tribe’s Snoqualmie carving barn.
