For a week, the King County Sheriff’s office has been seeking Lorene Bardy. The 53year-old C ar nat ion woman has not been seen since early the morning of Thursday, Lorene Bardy April 26. She has life-threatening medical issues requiring medication, which was found at the house. Searchers aren’t sure what condition Bardy might be in, if found. “We’re going to be cautiously optimistic, and move forward,” though, said Katie Larson with the sheriff’s department. A search Saturday in the Carnation area was led by sheriff’s staff with search and rescue volunteers, but Bardy was not found. “We’re going to expand the perimeter around her house, move out farther,” said Larson. Bardy lived in the 29200 block of Northeast 52nd Street in Carnation, with her husband. He was out of town the day she went missing. No foul play is suspected. Bardy is described as 5-foot-7 and 125 pounds, with brownblonde hair and blue eyes. She wears glasses. Anyone who has seen her is asked to call the King County Sheriff at (206) 296-3311 or 911.

Smilla’s run ends

Police Chief: Cool gear, team effort led to murder suspect’s capture Many people, luck, skill helped police end standoff at Peter Keller’s ridge bunker By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

Lost sled dog captured in Fall City after seven weeks on the loose By Valley Record Staff

Smilla’s wild tour of the Snoqualmie Valley and greater Eastside is over. The Norwegian sled dog, who spent seven weeks on the loose after busting out of her crate March 10, has been captured. Smilla is fortunate: Not every dog lost for so long gets to come home, says Jim Branson, president of the Missing Pet Partnership and a lead organizer of the Valley search. “Smilla did me a favor by letting me catch her,” he said. On her way home from the Iditarod sled race in Alaska, the dog broke free when an overloaded crate broke. Locals noticed her

many times as the dog circled Fall City, ranging to Preston and as far as Renton but resisting every capture attempt. Volunteers finally threw a net over her on Sunday, April 29, at Twin Rivers Golf Course, after slipping her the mickey, via some dog food. Last week, Smilla ran from Fall City to the Greenwood Cemetery in Renton, 20 miles away. She spent the day in the cemetery and then ran back to Fall City where she started. The partnership received reports on Saturday and Sunday that Smilla was trotting around Twin Rivers Golf Course in Fall City. Going to the course, Branson and MPP volunteers Scott Dungan and Miriam Kelly were watching Smilla and keeping her safe. See SMILLA, 15

Luck, skill, and community support led police to the hideout of suspected murderer Peter Keller, North Bend Police Chief Mark Toner said Tuesday, May 1. “The community did a fantastic job. We had a lot of tips, and I don’t recall anybody who was in a panic,” Toner said, in a report to the North Bend City Council about the events of the past week Although the investigation of the murders and fire that Keller is charged with is still open, Toner was able to offer some details on the investigation, and the police work that led to Keller’s capture Saturday. One factor was the number of officers. Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Cindi West estimated there were “about three dozen” members of vari-

The new and improved Sno-Valley Senior Center

Carol Ladwig/Staff Photos

Far right, hitting a balloon around the new and improved main hall, members of the Adult Day Health program are happy to be back with other seniors, but they’ll miss the big fire and s’mores they had at Camp Don Bosco, where they stayed during the remodel. Right, lunching in their bright new surroundings, seniors had a lot of good things to say—and hear —about the new main hall, which had its ceiling lowered dramatically during the remodel, reducing echoes and adding brightness. Above, Amy O’Bryant, program coordinator, gives Donna Turluenke a brief tour of the new computer lab in the senior center. The computers, at the top of the stairs, are directly across from a large piece of beadboard wall, left alone in the remodel.

SENIOR CENTER FROM 1 Gone are the dark wood beams, the handmade quilts, and the sweeping balcony overlooking the first floor. In its place, there are two small activity rooms and a large “great room” plus restrooms, a reading nook with easy chairs, and a bank of computers arrayed down one hallway. “I never would have dreamed there was this much room up here,” said member Donna Torluenke, on her first day back in the center. Since last August, Torluenke, from Fall City, had been going to the center’s temporary home at Camp Don Bosco. The senior center building was closed for a $600,000 remodel to add activity rooms, restrooms and storage on the second floor, lower the soaring ceiling in the main hall, and make safety improvements throughout. Staff spent the week of April 23 to 27 moving back into the space, and opened the doors to their new old home on April 30. “It was great here Monday morning, because people were coming by just to see it,” said volunteer receptionist Sandi Olsen. “The whole place was just vibrating with people’s excitement.” At first, it was nervous excitement. Many couldn’t envision how lowering the height-of-the-building ceiling in the main hall—one of the senior center’s hallmarks for years —would affect the place. “They were really worried,” said Denise McKenney, a volunteer driver for the center, who heard from many residents throughout the remodel. “Most of them were surprised how nice it looks.” “We wondered how they were going to do it,” added Torluenke. Fresh white walls and plenty of recessed lights in the white ceiling gave the room a dramatically different look, and an effect like the first day of sun after a long winter. “It’s just so bright,” one woman chirped as she scurried in and out of the main hall, getting the noon meal ready to serve. “It’s actually so bright… we used the dimmers in the exercise class,” said program coordinator Amy O’Bryant.

“Now we’re here, we’re back in the community”

t lower left on this page, you’ll find the Record’s masthead, which names the people responsible for putting together the paper in your hands. What’s missing from that list are the unsung heroes of the paper trade: The dozens of carriers, teens and adults among them, who hit the streets weekly in every kind of weather to ensure it comes to the reader. Valley springs are serious affairs. With my tongue firmly in cheek, I’ve noticed that lately, local winters have dragged Seth Truscott into midsum- Valley Record Editor mer. With all that weather to contend with, good carriers show their worth by making sure that papers get to our customers in readable condition, despite all the rain, snow, wind, ice, floods, and other obstacles of nature. We ask a lot of our carriers. To them I say, thank you for all that you do. Our delivery has come a long way in the two years since we began

home delivery, with much credit due to the Record’s circulation manager, Patricia Hase, and her efforts on behalf of our small army of delivery carriers, instilling a customer service mindset. We started the youth carrier program here to help young people build their work ethic and job potential. It’s actually cheaper to hire adults to drive the paper around, but we wanted to make sure the dominant percentage of our carriers are in middle or high school. While the pay is modest, the opportunity helps Valley youth develop entrepreneuralism, followthrough, the importance of customer service and getting to know their neighborhood and the community at large. Once a month, we recognize the

fine people who fling you the paper, with a Carrier of the Month spotlight in our pages. We plan to do more. Recently, the Valley Record started a Youth Carrier Scholarship program to reward and inspire our young team members. Scholarships can be used for college, or trade and vocational tech training. Applicants need to have spent a year, at the least, as a carrier, be between 15 and 18 years old, with a minimum grade-point average of 2.7. They also need to perform well, have few complaints and get a recommendation from a community member, neighbor or teacher. In this first round, the application also included an essay, which asked young people to think about the impact that they make on their com-

munities, and the lessons they’ve learned from their route. Scholarships prove to sthe families of our carries that we understand the hard choices being made in these economic times, and that the newspaper has faith in the successful contribution our youth carriers will grow to make. The first carrier scholarship recipients will be announced very soon. Later this year, we will begin the application process for the scholarship’s second selection. We are also seeking local business sponsors to help us build up the awards. You can help. To learn more or help sponsor a scholarship, contact Patricia Hase at or e-mail Publisher William Shaw at

Day of Silence should honor a different group: The veterans Last year, our United States Congress passed a law making it legal for gay and lesbian individuals to serve openly in the United

States Armed Forces. Also, a couple of months ago, the Washington State Legislature passed a law making same-sex marriages legal here in Washington State. So, isn’t it time for all of our state’s public high schools to discontinue the annual Day of Silence events they’ve been conducting to show emphathy for gay and lesbian individuals, especially since some individuals are indicating these Day of Silence events are now meant to “honor and pay tribute to gay and lesbian individuals” just for being silent about their sexual preferences? Or better yet, maybe our state legislature should pass a new law requiring that these annual Day of Silence events in our public high schools be used to “honor and pay tribute to our nation’s wounded warriors”, many of whom often spend the remainder of their lives suffering in silence due to the terrible wounds they sustained while serving all of us? After all, our current state law just requires a one-hour Veterans Day assembly for all veterans instead of a full day of observance. Jim Curtis North Bend

Family safety fair a big success Sno-Valley Indoor Playground’s annual Safety Fair, held on Friday, May 4, was a rousing success, if you ask the little folks who lined up to explore a real fire truck and a sheriff ’s car! 50 free bike helmets were distributed to local families, complimentary child car-seat safety checks were provided, and there were bags of information and coloring materials for each family. We’d like to thank the professionals who made it a great experience for the youngest members of our community: Eastside Fire & Rescue, the city of North Bend Police/King County Sheriff ’s Department, and the ‘Car Seat Ladies’ (Sue Emery and Kathy Kruger).

Hospital’s stroke, heart care level upped by DOH The Washington Department of Health recently categorized Snoqualmie Valley Hospital as Level II Cardiac Center of Care and Level III Stroke Center within a new facility classification system. Now, local emergency medical services (EMS) personnel have the option to transport patients in critical stroke or cardiac condition directly to Snoqualmie Valley Hospital to reduce initial transfer times, where care coordination can begin. “Snoqualmie Valley Hospital has strong collaborative relationships with area hospitals to ensure that patients receive the right care at the right time regardless of where that care occurs,” said Rachel Weber, Director of Nursing at Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. “Given the hospital’s new categorizations for stroke and cardiac care, those in the Snoqualmie Valley and surrounding areas can now receive care sooner, which could save lives.”

Arellano talks generation gap at Chamber business series

Cle Elum-based veteran roaster Pioneer Coffee opens retail location in North Bend

Opening a business is never an easy undertaking; but, when it’s in your hometown, there’s a sense you have to do everything right. This is home, after all. When the opportunity to open a Pioneer Coffee retail location in North Bend arose, Pioneer Coffee Roasting Company owners JoAnna and Chris Madsen didn’t waste much time. After first spending time with a drive-thru location in Fall City, Chris Madsen started Pioneer in Cle Elum more than 10 years ago. The company has grown to include not only wholesale coffee roasting and supplying commercial clients across the country and online, but also two retail cafes located in Cle Elum and West Seattle. But JoAnna Madsen’s mother, Julie Pleasants, who now serves as the company’s general manager, and sister, DeAnna Haverfield, who serves as Pioneer’s wholesale and customer service manager, wanted to return to North Bend, which the family has called home for some time. Both Madsen and Haverfield grew up in the Snoqualmie Valley. Haverfield still lives here, and had been commuting to Cle Elum to work for more than a year. “We knew North Bend would be a great place for a Pioneer Café location and that DeAnna would be ecstatic to not have to commute so far,” Madsen said. Haverfield said she is visualizing the new Pioneer Coffee café in North Bend as a place where the community will come together. She said she’s focusing her excitement and positive anxiousness into making sure the Valley community feels at home. She has to pause during conversation because furniture—including a very comfy couch—is arriving.

“Pioneer is a very community-oriented company,” Madsen said. We plan to be involved in as much as possible—supporting youth is important to us, and other local businesses, as well.” In fact, much of the preparations for the new North Bend location were put on hold while the entire clan attended the Snoqualmie Valley Little League opening day ceremonies on April 28 at Torguson Park. In the coming days, the entire Pioneer Coffee team also will need to decide on additional lighting, a coat of paint, diaper changing stations, as well as where the café’s traditional mural will be created. But the three women have a bit of a blueprint already with the Cle Elum location of Pioneer Coffee. “North Bend will have a similar look and feel to Cle Elum,” Madsen said. “The products will also be the same for the most part, with some special items and a more kid-friendly menu.” Doors to the North Bend Pioneer café will open on May 12, with a more formal grand opening event to come a few weeks later, Pleasants said. “We’ll be occupying a spot where a lot of folks were already coming together,” Haverfield said. “My hope is that we can elevate that even further.” “It’s about the coffee,” she said, quoting the Pioneer Coffee slogan, “but it’s also about community. This is home; I’m home; I want everyone to feel that way when they come in, too.”

Mount Si thrower Reece Karalus winds up for a pitch during play Tuesday, May 1, against Lake Washington.

Bringing heat

Mount Si baseball claims KingCo crown, players breaking into record books By Seth Truscott Editor

Mount Si on Tuesday downed Lake Washington with Reece Karalus’ smooth, confident pitching and some powerful hits by what is becoming the Wildcat’s definite lineup. On Wednesday, the team handled the visiting Interlake Saints, 4-2, to claim the Kingco title for 2012, led by senior Trevor Lane’s lightning strikeouts on the mound. See HEAT, 10

Mount Si defenders link up in last, heartbreaking push for league glory

They may not have made all the goals, but they did their part to ensure success for the whole team. They’re the line: Mount Si soccer team’s defenders, and they faced a major test in the last week against league leader Mercer Island and league tournament foe Jaunita. Mount Si tied with Mercer on Friday, 1-1, then had its playoff hopes dashed unexpectedly on Monday, May 7, against the Rebels, 3-2. Eying their hoped-for push to state last week, Mount Si’s keeper, Hunter

Malberg, and defensive core, helmed by sweeper Johnny Cramer and stopper Aaron Baumgardner, shared their critical role as the all-seeing eyes and strategic voice of the team. “On the back line, it’s crucial to communicate all the time,” Baumgardner said. When they’re linked up, the team plays cohesively. “We’ve gotten a lot better throughout the season,” and intended to be well prepared for playoffs. Following Mount Si’s narrow win Tuesday night, May 1, over Bellevue, head coach Darren Brown and assistant Ben Tomlisson emphasized balance and tighter talk for the defense. The transition during games from defense to offense and back was a major focus as Mount Si

headed for its showdown against Mercer for the league crown Friday. “It’s now or never,” Brown said. See THE LINE, 10

forming strong, “as advertised,” the coach said, and catcher Zach Usselman is growing in skill and strength, continuing to impress. “Without him, I don’t think we’d be anywhere close to where we are now,” Cribby said. Mount Si is now 12-2 in league, 17-3 overall this season.

Lane struck out 17 Saints, and Mount Si again brought the hits. Reece Karalus was Mount Si’s heavy hitter, with a double that brought home Lane in the fourth. He had a run of his own off a Connor Swift at-bat. In the fifth, Brian Woolley had a single that brought home Ryan Atkinson. Woolley stole second and came home himself on a Karalus single. The win followed Mount Si’s masterful home game Tuesday, May 1, against Lake Washington, with big smacks by Trevor Taylor, lead hitter Joey Cotto, Lane and Connor Swift. Karalus pitched in that game, tallying 12 strikeouts. “We’re starting to Seth Truscott/Staff Photo get hot,” said head Mount Si junior Joey coach Elliott Cribby. Cotto at bat, ready for “When this team a big hit on Tuesday, gets hot, it’s a scary juggernaut.” May 1. The coach described Cotto’s bat prowess as “lightning in a bottle.” The junior has led the lineup for six games. Karalus, whose throws have been in the mid-90s, was happy to be throwing strikes, knowing the team’s hits are backing him up. Mount Si’s pitching staff have been per-

Into the record book Lane and Karalus are now deep into the Mount Si baseball record books, and have the potential to set new numbers this season. In 2005, player Adam Dentz set the record for strikeouts at 83, but both Karalus and Lane look primed to bust that number. Karalus has 71, and Lane, with 67, just surpassed his prior record for third-highest in 2011, 63. All three Mount Si pitchers—Trevor Taylor included—made the records last year. Karalus already holds the team’s third-highest opponent batting average, from last season and just behind Frank Tassara’s two prior seasons, with 0.169. That statistic measures a pitcher’s ability to prevent hits during official at-bats. Karalus also holds the record for saves with four in 2010, and the number-two record for season earned run average with 1.25. Lane already holds the Mount Si record for wins as a pitcher with seven in 2011. Taylor is among a trio tied for second place with six last year. Karalus now has six, Lane five, and Taylor four this season. Karalus also looks to have broken his prior ERA average with 0.77; He was second to Dentz with 1.25 in 2010.

THE LINE FROM 9 Mount Si grabbed victory on May Day, 3-2, by the skin of its teeth—on the strength of two goals by just-returned senior Dane Aldrich and a penalty kick by iceman Davis Karaica. “I’m too excited right now!” said Aldrich. “It was a great game to come back to.” Tomlisson praised the team’s “ability to roll up our sleeves and come back, not give up. “We’ve got some dynamic forward players who, given the right opportunity, will get us goals,” the coach said. “There’s a balance between going forward and doing the right defending.” Defense is about control and connectivity, with players filling roles or changing them as needed. Stopper-sweeper combo Baumgardner and Cramer compliment each other. Strong and fast, Cramer helps make for the perfect duo, his teammate says. “Our senior, Johnny Cramer, is a really strong sweeper,” Tomlisson said. “Aaron has been injured, but is an exceptional talent as a stopper.” Mount Si’s group of outside backs include Tyler Cruz, Connor Williams, Colton Oord, Cameron Van Winkle, Chace Carlson and Matt Eichler. Cruz has worked hard and spelled a lot of minutes, coaches say, while Carlson is a forward who came back to fill an outside defender role, looking sharp in the process. Van Winkle, a junior Mount Si star football kicker, is a talent as an outside defender. Chief goalkeeper Malberg, spelled by fellow junior Alex Anderson, is often shouting hints and comments, telling teammates where the ball is, promoting game awareness. Forwards can get caught up in the game. Defenders give them a deeper sense of the field, as part of the overall strategic

Carlson was named a player of the match with Kody Clearman and goalkeeper Hunter Malberg. symphony that is soccer. Defense “tells me what’s working, what’s not, where I need to go, how I need to show for the ball,” said senior forward Aldrich. Physically, every game is different for the defender. Against stronger opponents, “we’re taking heat the whole game,” said Baumgardner. Against weaker opponents,

their job is mostly passing the ball. Regardless, Baumgardner loves the flow and freedom of the game. “I’ve been playing since I was a little kid,” he said. “I love how there’s no set thing you have to do, no time outs. When you’re out here, no one can tell you what to do.” Follow the team at http://

Rain, hail, sun, and wind welcomed a steady stream of customers to the opening day of the Carnation Farmers Market, Tuesday, May 1. The market is in its ninth year of operation, bringing produce and goods from local growers direct to the public. New this year is the Tolt Commons Community Shelter, a community project of the city of Carnation. The timber-frame shelter, with skylights and a cement walkway, was recognized in a dedication ceremony, presided over by Carnation Mayor Jim Berger, with project sponsors USDA, Snoqualmie Tribe, and Sno-Valley Tilth all attending. More than 20 vendors were present for opening-day events, in a wide, yet balanced variety. Shoppers found a selection of early-season fresh vegetables from several local farms, plant starts to begin their own gardens, fresh butter, cheese, eggs and bread, locally made wine, fresh flowers, and assorted hot food vendors. A host of booths provided books about local farms and farmers markets, face painting, volunteer opportunities, and community information. The Carnation Farmers Market is open Tuesdays, 3 to 7 p.m., through November. Music on the Grass, chalk art, and a children’s booth are regular features.

Two boys in a stump, a three-dimensional animated hippopotamus and six Avengers will make Thursday, May 10, a full day for movie-goers in North Bend. The boys and the hippo are the stars of two student-produced films that will run at the North Bend Theater before the showing of the long-awaited Marvel production, “The Avengers.” There are stars in the Avengers, too, but the real reason for the evening is to showcase the work of the filmmakers, all Mount Si High School students in the Wildcat Production Club. The annual Wildcat Film Festival, as it’s called, “is our own little Snoqualmie Valley film festival,” said club advisor and video production teacher Joe Dockery. It’s also a first opportunity for many student filmmakers to see their work on the big screen. Xury Greer, club president and inventor of the 3-D hippo detective Hippo Crassy, a walking, talking, “stupid pun” personified, has done the festival before, and decided to try something un-Hollywood, this time. “Every idea you can think of is going to cost a lot to film. Hollywood has millions of dollars to pump into their movies for set designs and costumes,” he said. “Indie” films can’t afford that, “so they edit in the effects after shooting,” he said. “I’m really in filmmaking for storytelling, so if I never touch a camera, I don’t really care,” he said, which is why he’s been developing skills, like animation and 3-D work that are “useful all around in any type of video production.” He’ll showcase some of those skills in his 3-D animated short “Hippo Crassy and the Victimless Crime.” “The whole story is just about him doing hypocritical things…. It’s pretty funny.” Dakota Miller also decided on a comedy, after a false start more in keeping with his mysterious plot. The movie follows two boys who each wake up alone in the woods. They find a sword and pickaxe, and then they find each other. “Originally, it was just this mysterious movie with them walking around in the woods,” Miller said. “Then we realized we aren’t mysterious people. We’re more of a funny bunch.” It’s a silent movie, too, as much for the humor as for practical reasons.

Participants in the National Film Festival for Talented Youth’s 48-hour challenge are, from left: Parker McComb, Xury Greer, Adam Nardo, Randy Knox, and Alex Stokosa. “It was really windy that day,” Miller recalled, and the only audio equipment he had was on the camera itself, not up to the job. “The minute I decided it was a silent film, I just started shooting,” he said. Miller also makes an appearance in his movie, but his friends Christopher Hodel and Landon Storud did most of the acting. Greer also got help from Hodel, who did the music for his film. With that exception, everything else was Greer’s creation. “I wrote the script, modeled the characters, created the textures, did the voice acting… I wanted all of it to be original,” he said. Greer also worked with a team on another original effort that will be part of Thursday’s festival. Film-making, according to Dockery, is definitely a cooperative effort. This particular film, he says, “is kind of neat. It’s from… last weekend (April 28 and 29) when we competed in the National Film Festival for Talented Youth…. On Thursday, they give you a line of dialogue, a prop, and a theme, and the kids have 48 hours to film.” Dockery said the festival has something that will appeal to almost everyone. “There’s an action film, a comedy, sports…” Dockery said. “It’s also a fundraiser, though. Admission is $10, and that gets you into the Avengers, which is a hot new film, and for each $10, the club will receive $5.” The club uses funds to buy new video equipment, or for school trips, such as their visit to New York over spring break. The Wildcat Film Festival starts at 5 p.m. with student films. The feature film “The Avengers” begins at 6 p.m.

ference to share their biggest challenges and their biggest dreams. Students openly discussed the challenges in their lives, such as not being accepted, feeling judged, peer pressure, bullying issues, pollution in our communities, drugs and their influence and needing more opportunities for their voices to be heard. Then students, one by one, shared some of their greatest dreams, including being accepted to a good college, making a positive difference, being accepted by their peers, going on a mission trip to help others, standing up for what is right and spreading awareness. “There’s nothing more inspiring than being in a room filled with teens, such honesty, such hope, such promise,” SVCN Executive Director, Laura Smith said.

Local valley teens came together on Saturday, March 14, at Twin Falls Middle School in North Bend for “Be the Change,” an annual leadership conference sponsored by the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network in partnership with the Riverview and Sno-Valley Youth Councils. Students heard from facilitator, Nigel Wrangham, took part in role-playing leadership activities, and, in breakout sessions, heard from other youth leaders and community members on topics such as Internet safety, “The Media and You, prescription drug abuse, reaching out for help, respect and diversity, stress management, suicide prevention, and “You and Your Brain.” Wrangham has been a leader and innovator in the teaching, training and substance abuse prevention fields since 1990. He is known for his dynamic, interactive style and for incorporating teambuilding activities into his leadership training events. He encouraged teens at the con-

Smilla likes women better than men, so Miriam fed Smilla some sedative pills hidden in liverwurst. The dog settled down for a nap, but never fell into a deep sleep. “Several times, she woke up just as I was sneaking up on her with a net,” Branson said. “The three of us followed her around the golf course for about four hours as she found new places to nap and we tried to sneak up on her.” Branson rushed the last 10 feet, throwing a net over her as she was getting up to run. “Nothing went exactly as planned, but it worked,” Branson stated. “She was too sleepy and disoriented to run away quickly.” Smilla was not happy about being trapped, but volunteers were elated. “We are all very pleased that she will no longer be at risk of being struck by a car,” Branson said. Once dogs are on the run, afraid of strangers, they start learning to distrust all humans. “It’s common for dogs to get in this state of mind when they’re on the run,” Branson said. “Now that she’s back with people, she’s perfectly fine. She’s friendly, she wants to be with people. She’s accepting food.” The dog was suffering from a giardia infection when she was found, but is otherwise healthy. And for a dog on the run for seven weeks, that’s surprising.

Should Furtwangler choose not to be reunited with the dog, Branson said there are several people who have volunteered to adopt the dog. Branson hopes everything works out for Smilla. “She is a high risk for escaping again,” he said. The most important thing now, Branson said, is for Smilla’s handlers to make sure she’s wearing an escapeproof collar. Branson is amazed by how far the dog roamed—and how she always found her way back to Fall City. The dog ran all the way to Renton, and “ended up back in the same place,” he said. “She was building a mental map of the area,” Branson added. Lost dogs often circle and check out their surroundings, learning where water and food sources can be found. “This is the first time we’ve had a case that a dog ran so far away from the point of escape and then all the way back.”

“She didn’t really lose much weight,” Branson said. “That’s because everybody was feeding her, trying to catch her, giving her treats, bowls of kibble. She ate pretty well.” Smilla’s behavior made the big difference in her getting back to safety. Branson says many lost dogs wind up in remote places. Smilla, in contrast, preferred to take a nap in the afternoon in a sunny, grassy place. “She chose places that 360 degrees of escape. This made her very visible,” Branson said. “So a lot of people saw her. This allowed us to keep track of her.” Volunteers, some from as far away from Ocean Shores, have invested hundreds of hours trying to capture Smilla, as have locals at the campground, cemetery, golf course. More than a thousand called with sightings following a report by this newspaper. “We received 2,000 calls from people who had seen the story,” Branson said. Smilla is now being boarded by a friend of Carl Jesltrup of Fall City, a local acquaintance of her owner, sled dog racer Silvia Furtwangler of Norway. We have a Truck To renT for LocaL Moves

Prescription takeback in Snoqualmie

turns out that’s the majority of locations where he had been.” Friday morning, Seattle and KCSO SWAT teams assembled early to find the bunker, which was a half-hour of “extremely difficult walking” from the nearest parking spot, Toner said. Having visited the site several times in the last few days, Toner said it was still difficult to find when he went there Tuesday to see the demolition. “Knowing where it was, and following the trail of hundreds of cops going in and out, I can’t imagine how they located it,” he said. Now that it’s been found and demolished—DNR crews collapse it last week, and all planting restoration work is expected to be done by now—“The majority of the work from here on out is going to be figuring out why he did what he did,” Toner said.

Betty Morgan, right, a Snoqualmie Ridge resident, stopped by the Snoqualmie Police Department’s drug collection event Saturday, April 28, to safely dispose of some expired medicine. Officer Sherwood was on hand to help supervise the collection event, which gathered 63 pounds of unwanted medicines. The drugs were incinerated at a Seattle facility owned by the Drug Enforcement Agency, which sponsors the semi-annual collection days.

We believe every child should be treated the way we would like our own children to be treated. It is our goal to implement the highest standard of care at every patient encounter whether it is a child’s first visit to the dental office, a teenager who is headed off to college or a special-needs adult patient we’ve been seeing for decades.



“We made several attempts to contact him, hailing him, ‘this is the police, it’s time to come out,’” Toner said. When that didn’t work, “We introduced some different gasses into the bunker, CS gas, tear gas, that kind of thing.” Later, Toner said, they thought they might have heard a muffled voice, as if Keller were speaking through a gas mask. By 8 p.m., a few team members had settled in for a long night of waiting. “Based on the pictures we had, we knew this was a fortified bunker. Picture a log cabin built inside a hole,” Toner said. Because there had been booby traps set at the home, officers were also cautious about traps at the bunker. They used robotic cameras to look inside the door and when there was no movement, determined to enter it. The next day, demolitions officers cautiously set charges to blow the roof off, and saw a pool of blood on the floor. Once inside, they found Keller, dead, lying next to the handgun he apparently used to kill himself. Toner commended everyone involved in the operation, from the citizens who phoned in sightings or suggestions for flushing Keller out of the bunker, to the many law enforcement agencies involved, such as the Department of Homeland Security, which “loaned us some pretty cool equipment,” he said. “It was a huge combination effort,” Toner added. He noted that luck played a large part in the search. The luck began with a neighbor’s quick action in reporting the fire, at 8:43 a.m. Deputies from the North Bend substation were dispatched, along with Eastside Fire & Rescue, and were on-site within eight minutes, fast enough to stop the deliberatelyset fire from destroying all the evidence in the home. The fire had spread to the attic, causing it to flare up several times in the next day and a half, Toner said. Firefighters balanced the need for controlling the flames with investigators’ need to preserve evidence in the home, that might otherwise have been destroyed. Toner said they began to suspect foul play when firefighters recovered the bodies of Lynnettee and Kaylene Keller, and found several booby traps in the home. Evidence teams were assembled, one for the house, one to investigate the family, and one to process all the evidence, Toner said. Before the end of the day, there were 26 officers at the home, including arson investigators and a bomb squad. A recovered laptop computer was the next bit of luck. Its hard drive contained photos of the bunker Keller had apparently been building for eight years, and photos that enabled police to close in on the location of the bunker.

“Our belief is that the computer was supposed to be destroyed in the fire,” Toner said. Instead, it went to a computer forensics specialist with the King County Sheriff’s Office, who found the photos and with her computer skills, enhanced them enough to identify the North Bend outlet mall in the distance. She was also able to calculate the angles of several pillars in the image, to determine the vantage point of the photographer, on Rattlesnake Ridge. Power lines visible in the distance also helped. Keller had taken a series of photos for a panoramic view, from exactly the right spot, as far as Toner was concerned. “If you stood at the front door of the bunker and took those shots, you wouldn’t have seen the mall. If you were inside the bunker and took those shots out, to see what my view was, you wouldn’t have seen the mall… around this entire bunker, I found one location where you could stand and get that shot,” he said. By Thursday, “we are pretty confident that we have the location,” Toner said. However, the Sheriff’s Office kept helicopters searching, and continued reporting that they were searching various areas, to prevent Keller from finding out what they knew. At the same time, deputies were also searching for reports on the license plate of Keller’s red pickup truck, which several citizens had reported seeing at various trailheads. Police officers had, too. “Officers, both Snoqualmie and our own, had run that plate in several locations,” Toner said, and “the David-1 car on Thursday, four days before the event, had run the license plate while it was sitting up at the Snoqualmie Point trailhead.
