Exploring the splash of graffiti under the Bendigo Boulevard bridge, North Bend Police Chief Mark Toner has been keeping tabs on the increasing work of taggers—some using gang symbols—in the community. He says locals should be aware of graffiti’s growth.

Writing on the wall In North Bend, growth of tagging, gang symbols is a troubling sign By Seth Truscott Editor

On the stairwell by the North Bend Park and Ride, a tagger has struck, and pretty recently, too. The nickname, sprayed in black, spiky letters, has resisted one clean-up attempt, leaving the graffiti still legible. “I’m reading M-A-V-I-K: Mavik,” says North Bend Police Chief Mark Toner, driving around the city on a graffiti survey. Most commuters who drive by this place, on West North Bend Way, won’t notice the foot-tall letters, which are hidden under the lip of the roadway, out of sight. “You could drive by this thing all day long, and you’d never see it,” the police chief said. Toner says graffiti is on a steady incline in North Bend. He’s not sure what’s pushing the increase,

Erasing Graffiti ‘Writing on the wall’ is the first story in a two-part series looking at how Valley police are dealing with the persistent problem of graffiti and vandalism.

but he knows that locals need to start pushing back. “If we allow some to go, it’s going to start to grow,” he says. “That’s what we’re seeing now.”

A hidden language

A few steps away, there’s another Mavik sign. But this time, someone else has come along and sprayed over his tag with “X3” in blue letters. The new tag has connections with the Sureños, an Hispanic street gang. “Mavik is saying ‘I’m cool,’ and X3 is saying, ‘No, you’re not,’” Toner says. “This is where it starts to become a battle of sorts.” See GRAFFITI, 3

Months after a weeklong power outage that started January 18, the Mount Si Transitional Health Center in North Bend has again suffered from the effects of that event. The center, home now to 41 people recovering from medical procedures, had to have a generator wired into the facility during the outage. Staff did not know until last month that some of the work did not meet state code. An electrical inspector found the flaws about two weeks ago, and called them to administrator Beth Marsh’s attention. “He told us what he had concerns about, and we said ‘ok, we’re on it,’” Marsh said Beth Marsh Thursday. She esti- Mount Si Transitional mated the repairs Health Center would be done by the Administrator end of last week. The center was not fined or penalized in any way because of the work, either Marsh emphasized. “He totally held us blameless,” Marsh said of the electrical inspector. “He wasn’t even here for that.” The inspector had just approved the electrical repairs to the laundry room, damaged by a Feb. 18 fire, when he spotted the generator flaws. Marsh called the discovery unfortunate, but also a good development, since now they knew to make repairs to bring the generator up to code. The generator had been installed by a company that appeared at fault for the failure to meet code. The installation had been intended to be temporary, but the generator is now expected to stay in place for a few more months, Marsh said. See STORm, 2

Opstad Elementary School’s newly hired principal will be coming home when she assumes her new role July 1. Amy Wright, principal at Stillwater Elementary School near Carnation, grew up in the Snoqualmie Valley School District, and looks forward to returning to it. “The idea of being able to work in a place that is home to me both personally and professionally, that was really appealing,” she said. Wright, who lives in Fall City, was approved as Opstad’s new principal at the May 10 Snoqualmie Valley School Board meeting. She was chosen from about 40 applicants for the position, but few could match the local connection she had. “I grew up in North Bend, went to North Bend Elementary School… graduated from Mount Si High School,” Wright said. She then attended Seattle Pacific University for a teaching degree, and got her first teaching job at Fall City Elementary School, in 1990, teaching first grade. After 15 years at FCES, Wright wanted to pursue a principalship, and served a year-long principal internship at the just-opened Cascade View Elementary School. She was hired as Stillwater Elementary’s principal (“This is year six,” she said), and loved her job and the community. However, when John Jester announced his plans to retire as Opstad’s principal, Wright knew she had to apply for the position. “The opportunity was just too good to pass up,” she said. Especially appealing about this opportunity, Wright said, were the similarities in the two schools. Both opened in the same

Although she couldn’t give an estimate on the cost of the repairs, Marsh knew that the installing company would not be reimbursing the center its costs for the repairs, adding, “That’s kind of a sore subject.” Marsh praised the electrical inspector for being so helpful in the process, and her staff for making sure everyone stayed safe. “It’s taught us a lot,” she said. “I’m really proud of the fact that everyone has remained in the facility and stayed safe. That’s saying something.”

Amy Wright year, she said, and both schools have many staff members who’ve been there since the schools started. “Opstad is a little bit bigger than Stillwater,” Wright said, adding “our demographics are very similar…the socioeconomic factors are very similar between the two schools.” Because Snoqualmie Valley is larger than her current Riverview School District, Wright sees greater opportunities for herself here, too, in terms of collaboration and personal growth. She holds a superintendent’s credential, too, but isn’t aspiring to such a role any time soon. “I’m not ready to leave the day-to-day runnings of a school,” she said. “I love the connection to the students and the teachers on a daily basis.” Wright has already begun discussing with Jester how to maintain the strong learning tradition that Jester is credited with creating, and how to make the transition between school administrators as smooth as possible. “The part of North Bend where Opstad is, I will really need to take some time to get to know that community… to see what the priorities are for those parents,” she said. She also wants to create a good working relationship with Twin Falls Middle School, the school her students will attend after they leave Opstad. Wright intends to give her full support to the district’s plan to annex Snoqualmie Middle School in 2013, as well, saying “It’s going to take support from everyone in the community and all of the schools.”

Tagged town King County Sheriff’s Deputies are monitoring an increase in graffiti in North Bend. Graffiti and tagging vandalism is expected to rise during summer months.

Who’s tagging? Made by lone taggers, groups of taggers, and sometimes painted by individuals with ties to gangs, or done as hate messages, graffiti is often placed in areas rarely seen by most locals, but visible to other taggers.

Tagging territory Tagging escalates as groups of graffitoartists cover over each other’s markings. Rivalries can lead to more serious problems, police say.

Eastside Fire and Rescue’s Technical and Swiftwater Rescue Team conducted a two-day training session, May 1 and 2. Members of Woodinville Fire and Rescue and Snoqualmie Fire Department joined EFR on a section of the Middle Fork and South Fork of the Snoqualmie River east of North Bend. Twenty-five students led by five instructors took classroom training before hitting the river for exhilarating swimming, floating and a simulated rescue in Class II and III rapids. Swiftwater rescue technicians were expected to solve a rescue scenario in real time to successfully complete their recertification. Each year during the spring and summer months, EFR responds to an increase in water rescues.

What to do? When discovered, graffiti should be reported promptly and painted over as soon as possible. When left alone, tagging can quickly escalate. To report graffiti, contact the Snoqualmie Police Department at (425) 888-3333, the King County Sheriff’s Office at (425) 888-4433. Or, dial 911.

Graffiti’s growth needs fast, creative, response


he plain white surface of the alley wall along North Bend’s McClellan Street is begging for adornment. The trouble is, the ones doing all the painting are vandals. I had my eyes opened wide to the culture of graffiti and tagging during a recent walk around North Bend, courtesy of Police Chief Mark Toner. Probably like most locals, I didn’t know North Bend had a graffiti problem. It’s hard to notice the tags during the daily round. But it turns out that tagging is a lot like a secret language. It’s spoken in paint, and only in places where other taggers might notice, such as back alleys, the hidden sides of utility boxes, signs, hydrants, and other nooks and crannies. Tagging thrives when it doesn’t get any mainstream attention. It’s growing in this community. So it’s time to give it a closer look. Wall scrawls can lower property values, reduce retail sales, and according to the U.S. Department of Justice, by generating the perception of blight and fear of gang activity, it can also create real blight in our cities. “The appearance of graffiti is often perceived by residents and passers-by as a sign that a downward spiral has begun, even though this may not be true,” says the DOJ website. Patrons of downtown and parks may get the sense that if graffiti is tolerated, other, more serious crimes may also go unchallenged. According to, vandals believe their actions harm no one. The reality is graffiti costs everyone: taxpayers, homeowners, communities, businesses and schools. Those who practice it risk personal injury, violence and arrest. How do we fight graffiti? First, keep up the neighborhood. Remove litter and trash, fix broken fences, trim the landscape and ensure all lighting is working properly. Show everyone that someone cares about the place. Second, we need to remove graffiti as soon as possible. Rapid removal is an effective prevention tool. Graffiti removed within a day or two results in a nearly zero rate of recurrence. People should also know that graffiti needs to be reported to police. In the Valley, police ask that locals contact them when their property is tagged. You can call the main offices—Snoqualmie’s number is (425) 888-3333, the county’s is (425) 888-4433—or just dial 911. Police don’t mind, because it helps them fill in a pattern of vandalism and enforce the law. And taggers need to know that there is the possibility of getting caught. We could also consider turning plain McClellan Alley into a community mural. I’d like to see Scouts, youths or community groups explore the idea with property owners. Tags and scrawls stand out on a plain white wall. One covered in an imaginative work or pretty scenic view is a lot less conducive to gang signs and self-centered tags. Imagine the side benefits of a concerted Valley effort to stamp out graffiti—thriving, beautiful downtowns and neighborhoods. Safer parks and streets. Who wouldn’t want that? Just the graffiti artists. • Email Editor Seth Truscott at

Her work with the club was recognized by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation in Denver Colo., and its partner, the nonprofit Storytellers for Good, which came to Cedarcrest April 27 to film Filer and her students. The video highlights the difference the RAK Club has made in people’s lives. It will be incorporated into the Storytellers for Good website. Storytellers for Good is a team of journalists and photographers who share stories from all over the country, to inspire optimism and change. Their goal... “to tell and promote stories of people and organizations making a positive difference.” The Kindness Movement began in 1997, when freshmen students Hadley Rose and Samantha Ritter were inspired by a video they had seen in school on the importance of kindness. They approached Filer, their health teacher, and asked if she would help them create a Random Acts of Kindness Club at Cedarcrest. The CHS RAK Club now has up to 75 students at each meeting, and hosts events like monthly “pay it forward” lunches, Main Street clean-ups, personal product drives and raising $3,500 to build a well in Africa.

The quality of the music program in the Snoqualmie Valley Schools has to be one of the Valley’s best-kept secrets. My husband and I have been attending school concerts and performances since we moved here nearly nine years ago. In that time we have watched ongoing improvement in the quality of the music and the numbers of young people involved. Last Wednesday night, the music faculty gave a recital to benefit the district’s music program. Since this was the “First Annual” it was not particularly well attended but the audience enjoyed sterling performances by several teachers. They are a delightful group of gifted musicians and it was quickly apparent why our youngsters are flocking to their classes.

Did you know that 90 children are members of fourth and fifth grade chorus at Fall City Elementary or that the middle schools are producing so many jazz musicians, the jazz program at MSHS is straining to absorb all of them? And they are good!

perform June 6 at the same time and place. Music and drama performances are posted on school calendars throughout the year. Visit the website of your nearest school or the Snoqualmie Valley School District for the most up-to-date information.

Man dies in highway crash after Jeep strikes tree A 52-year-old North Bend man was killed late Friday, May 11, when his Jeep Cherokee struck a tree to the side of Interstate-90. According to the Washington State Patrol, the man was alone in the vehicle, driving westbound on I-90, just west of Highway 202, (Exit 31) at 11:30 p.m., when the vehicle left the road and struck a tree. He died at the scene. Road conditions were dry, said Trooper Julie Startup, spokesperson for the WSP. “Alcohol may be a factor in the collision, but we would not know more until the medical examiner gives the final analysis.”

Listing the many stops he’s made in his professional career, this jacket was a parting gift for North Bend City Administrator Duncan Wilson, who ended his role with the city on Tuesday, May 15. Wilson was honored at a farewell party Thursday, May 10, at Boxley’s. “It was mostly just for people who had some abuse lined up, so they could take the microphone and let me have it,” Wilson joked. Wilson came to North Bend in 2006, from Covington, and had previously served the other listed cities as city attorney or assistant city attorney, with the law firm of Sampson and Wilson. He is leaving the city to become the Friday Harbor City Administrator. His replacement, Londi Lindell, was also a city attorney and city manager with other municipalities. She started with North Bend May 1, and is a quick study, Wilson said.

Mount Si graduate and Air Force Academy cadet Chad Hennig poses with his gilder aircraft, teaching fellow cadets to fly sailplanes as an instructor pilot for the Air Force Academy Airmanship Program. In one of his last flights before graduation, he took his plane out for his own enjoyment. He was towed to 9,500 feet, then sailed up with thermals and rising air mass to 14,800 feet. Hennig, of North Bend, and a 2008 graduate of Mount Si High School, will graduate from the academy on May 23. With President Barack Obama giving the commencement speech, Hennig will likely receive a handshake from the commander-in-chief. Hennig will graduate from the Academy with a degree in aeronautical engineering, but has said he will likely stay with the Air Force until retirement. Sixty days after graduation from the Academy, Hennig reports to Columbus Air Force Base in Columbus, Mississippi, for pilot training.

Grange helps House of Hope



The Sallal Grange raised $1,000 for the non-profit House of Hope, a local shelter for women and children, at its recent Valentine’s Dance. Marcia Reinhart, director of Mama’s Hands House of Hope, spoke at the event, saying that donations drop off post-holidays, so that fundraising at this time of year was particularly appreciated. A new Sallal member and candy-maker provided chocolate roses for attendees as well as each head of family at the House of Hope. The program at Mama’s Hands is rigorous, but less than 10 percent of those who participate return to public housing. Each client must get and maintain a job, maintain a savings account, manage finances, and participate in counseling sessions. Learn more about the Grange at

Seattle hip-hop instructor Marc Pacampara leads two benefit dance sessions at Ignite.

Hip Hop for Hunger at Ignite Dance Hip-hop instructor Marc Pacampara headlines a free benefit Hip Hop Extravaganza, Sunday, May 20, at Ignite Dance and Yoga in North Bend. For “Hip Hop for Hunger,” two dance sessions, 3 p.m. for ages 7 to 12 and 4 p.m. for ages 13 and older, are planned, as hip-hoppers sweat for a cause—the Mount Si Food Bank. Bring a cash or canned-food donation. A dancer since 2003, Pacampara had the itch to put his own style on display. He became a choreographer, teaching at Westlake Dance Center since 2007, with performances including the Jingle Bell Bash, Seattle Sea-fair, Battle of Seattle, Unrated, STG presents: Dance This, The Carnival: Choreographer’s Ball, and Fox’s Mobbed. Pacampara lives in Seattle. Ignite is located at 472 East North Bend Way. Learn more at www. or call (425) 292-9880.

The stage is set Fall City Community Association’s completed project takes spotlight Fall City celebrated spring, May Day, and its almost-new community stage Tuesday, with children’s activities, music, and a ribbon cutting for the long-awaited stage. “It was finished last year, in time for Fall City Days, but we never really celebrated it,” explained Angela Donaldson, former president of the Fall City Community Association and organizer of the day’s events. A small but dedicated group of people turned out in the dicey weather to mark the occasion, and many of them recalled their role in building it. “A lot of the labor involved was volunteer,” said Del Moore, who loaned the project his boom truck to lift the roof into place. “Those are my ruts there,” he laughs, pointing at the ground in front of the stage. “It was pretty wet then.” Wet ground was only one of the obstacles the project had to overcome, said Vanessa Allen, who led the project to completion. “It’s not easy to build a semi-permanent structure here, so close to the river,” Allen said, so the permitting process was long and expensive, but Alan Sinsell, a King County Parks maintenance director helped smooth

that process. Although the permit was very costly, Allen said the project came in at just under $10,000. Funding for the project came entirely from the FCCA, which voted to use a portion of the grants received from King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert’s discretionary fund for the stage. “It was a great thing to be able to use those funds,” Allen said. Allen also thanked Glen Gordon and his wife Becky for building the structure with the timbers she found from a Bellingham company, and many others who helped the project along. Alan Minner, current FCCA president, gave a brief history of Olive Quigley, for whom the King County Park is named, and of the park itself. He said the park had something to attract everyone and listed among its assets the picnic tables, the beautiful view and sports activities. “We also have art walk sculptures, and now we have a stage,” he said. Allen cut the ribbon, held by two groups of children, and the event became a regular social activity, with cake and conversation, and children planting peas and feeding bunnies. “This is how Fall City is,” said Donaldson, smiling.

Facing down a tough Juanita team, Mount Si senior pitcher Kendra Lee left it all on the field Tuesday, May 8. The game irrevocably turned the Rebels’ way in the final inning when the Rebels’ Aliah Sweere knocked a homer to bring in a runner and make the rounds herself. Notre Dame-bound ace Allie Rhodes kept Mount Si scoreless; the Rebels won 3-0. But Lee, who struck out two, and the rest of the Mount Si defense left the senior night challenge, a warm-up for the postseason, in good spirits. “This game is the game I wanted for my senior night,” Lee said. “This is the team I wanted to play. This fight was the one I wanted. There’s nothing more I could ask for.” Sophomore Nikki Carroll got Mount Si’s sole hit off Rhodes, hustling to first. “She throws so fast that you can’t go up there wanting to kill the ball,” Carroll said. “I was just thinking ‘contact’ the whole time. I guess I got lucky.” In the league tourney on Thursday, May 10, Mount Si beat Liberty, 7-1, clinching an appearance at districts. They fell Friday to Lake Washington, and now play West Seattle Thursday at Lower Woodland Park, the loser going out. The Mount Si team senses that their defense is peaking now, as the postseason gets underway.

High-flying cheerleader Dana Pecora ­—she’s the one at the top of the pyramid—is more bubbly than ever these days. The Mount Si High School senior, oldest daughter of Peter and Patty Pecora, auditioned recently for the competitive cheer squad at the University of Montana at Missoula, and made the team. “I absolutely loved my experience cheering here, and really wanted to continue that in college,” she said, after the April 28-29 audition. She took a break from practice one sunny afternoon to answer the following questions. What made you choose the University of Montana? “I totally love that school. I was going to go there even if I didn’t cheer for them. The school just really appealed to me, I loved the area. I went and visited, and the people were so nice. They have a really good program in physical therapy, and I want to go into that. The cheer team was an added bonus. It was another reason why I wanted to go there. What drove your decision to study physical therapy? I like interacting with other people, and I really wanted to do something medical but personal. Physical therapy was the perfect mix for me and my personality, and Montana has an awesome six-year program. What is your position in cheer? I’m a flier. I’ll do that in college cheer, too, because it’s a co-ed team, not just all girls, so we actually partner-stunt with boys. What makes cheerleading important to you? I love cheerleading because it’s totally a mixed sport, and at the co-ed competitive level, like the University of Montana’s team is, it’s just such a rush of so many things. It’s not just dancing, not just cheering, it’s all about tumbling and stunting, and being totally fit, so you can do all of that. (At the U of M) it’s more of a sport, and less of a sideline cheer. It’s more competitive, which I love. See PECORA, 14

Maddy Trout, a seventh grader at Twin Falls Middle School, tags a runner out for her Flame Fastpitch 99’ team, in tournament play in April. The Flame Fastpitch girls softball club sent four teams to the Tri-Cities, April 26 to 27, to compete in one of the largest fastpitch softball tournaments in the state. The non-traditional Icebreaker draws top teams from Washington, Oregon and Idaho for a round-robin tournament with no designated champion. The newly expanded Flame Fastpitch program had a good showing, although three of the teams had just formed this year. Combined, the four Flame teams racked up 12 wins over the two-day event, with one team scoring 57 runs in their six games. Follow the team at

“We’re going to be solid, going into districts, state,” said junior Mickey Blad. “We’re going to give teams a run for their money.” Blad returned to the field as catcher Wednesday, allowing Britney Stevens to return to first. It felt good for the junior to be back on the field. Blad praised Lee’s work on the mound that afternoon, saying it was her best performance. “We have our best defense on the field right now,” said Carroll said, “with Mickey back and Brittany on first. It’s perfect timing going into the playoffs. We have a really good chance now.” “We’ve always cheered each other on,” she added. “We have such good chemistry. It’ll take us really far.” “We’re all together,” said sophomore Rachel Picchena. “We’re a team. It’s really helping.”

Drawing for Children Children’s Art Supply Basket


Wednesday was Senior Night, and the team honored its seniors, including Lee, the sidelined but still passionate Maura Murphy, and team manager Megan Rice. Lee and Murphy have been the heart of the team, said Head Coach Larry White. Both have shown that they care about their teammates. Murphy, who was challenged by injury issues, never got to take the field, but she’s still been a major force. “We’re going to miss Maura’s leadership and total support for the team,” White said. White will miss Lee’s determination to win. “She’s just so steady,” he said. “She’s a real calming spirit for the younger girls.” “They’re both amazing young ladies,” the coach added. Lee praised the chemistry. “We’re really close,” she said. “That really makes a difference.” The senior will miss “everything” about the 2012 squad. “I’ve made best friends on this team,” she said.

PECORA FROM 13 What’s your favorite sport to cheer? Football, hands-down. It’s highintensity…similar to cheer in a way that you wouldn’t think. They’re both super high-intensity sports. I’ve always loved football, growing up. I’m totally a football girl, and I know the sport, too, so I know what I’m cheering for.” Montana is not that far from home, and Dana says she’ll be back a lot. “I embrace all the influences I’ve had here, I’m not one of those kids who’s just dying to get out of high school, but I’m super-excited for what’s to come.”

This project will restore a surface water connection between the Snoqualmie River and a portion of its historic floodplain that has been isolated for over 50 years by a large flood protection levee. The isolated floodplain area currently contains a high quality wetland that is inaccessible to juvenile salmonids except during very large flood events (>60,000 CFS at Carnation). The proposed modifications will restore 500 feet of channel that will connect the Snoqualmie River to this existing feature. Upon reconnection, this area will provide approximately two acres of enhanced off-channel rearing and flood refuge habitat for juvenile salmon within the Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM) of the Snoqualmie River. Removing this portion of the McElhoe Pearson Levee addresses one of the primary limiting habitat conditions (off-channel rearing and refuge habitat) in the highest priority reach along the Snoqualmie River as identified in the Snohomish River Basin Salmon Conservation Plan. The project is located on the right (east) bank of the Snoqualmie River near River Mile 23. It is north of the City of Carnation in unincorporated King County in Sections 9 and 16 of Township 25 North, Range 7 East; Thomas Brothers’ Map page 539, C6. It is located within the 100-year floodplain of the Snoqualmie River and within the Snoqualmie Basin (WRIA 7). COMMENTS ON THIS PROJECT MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN MAY 31, 2012. FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT MR. DAN EASTMAN, PROJECT ECOLOGIST, AT (206) 263-6319, OR WRITE TO: DAN EASTMAN, DEPT. OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND PARKS, 201 S. JACKSON ST., SUITE 600, SEATTLE, WA 98104; OR VISIT river-floodplain-section/capitalprojects/mcelhoe-pearson.aspx Published in the Snoqualmie Valley Record on May 16, 2012 and May 23, 2012.
