The historic Moore House was the family home during Fall City resident Irene Pike’s teen years. Today, as she prepares to pass the home on to her daughter, Pike is nearing the completion of a 10-year restoration of the 108-year-old house—one of the community’s oldest—as a legacy to her mother, Elizabeth Parmelee, pictured below with her husband Gene in 1912.

Fall City’s 108-year-old Moore House gets new lease on life By Seth Truscott Editor

Moonbeam and Sunshine flew the coop. The beer-drinking bear has long since departed. The families have come and

gone, even the trees have aged and fallen. But Fall City’s historic Moore House is still here, better than ever in 2012. Much of the credit for that is due to Irene Pike. For the last nine years, Irene, a longtime Fall City resident, has been giving the 108-year-old Moore home a new lease on life. See HISTORY, 9

Eastside developer’s plan for subsidized 160-unit complex surprises nearby residents

2 • June 20, 2012 • Snoqualmie Valley Record

SR-202 crash kills one, hurts several


One man was killed just before 1 p.m. Friday, in a two-car collision on State Route 202. The man, the only occupant in his vehicle, was apparently turning eastbound onto 202, when an oncoming vehicle struck his car, killing him. According to a Highway Patrol spokeswoman, the other vehicle had several occupants, who were evaluated for injuries. Their injuries appeared to be minor, she said. The accident is under investigation.

With low-income housing long considered part of the mix on Snoqualmie Ridge, the council is weighing an ordinance that would exempt affordable multifamily housing projects from property taxes for up to 12 years. The ordinance is being considered now because Imagine Housing, an affordable housing developer on the Eastside, is considering its largest project yet on the Ridge’s Parcel S-20. Imagine Housing’s plan calls for a complex of 160 apartments, accessed via Frontier Avenue and Southeast Jacobia Street through the Eagle Pointe neighborhood. As now conceived, the project would have 25 one-bedroom units, 105 twobed units and 30 three-bedroom units, and a population of roughly 400. The one-bedroom units would have a maximum rent of about $900, while the three-bedroom units would have a maximum rent of 1,373. Up to seven people would be allowed to live in a three-bedroom unit. The complex would also include a two-story clubhouse with a recreation room and several family play areas. The Snoqualmie complex would be twice as large as Imagine’s biggest existing Eastside community. Imagine Executive Director Ann Levine said larger projects offer greater efficiencies of scale. The apartments are pegged to serve

people who earn less than a third of the annual median income for Washington state. Evans said occupants would be mainly employed people living in the community. The largest affordable housing provider on the Eastside, Imagine Housing operates 12 properties in Redmond, Issaquah, Bellevue, Kirkland and Mercer Island, housing about 1,000 people in total. Levine said her organization’s mission is to help Eastside residents, including seniors, veterans, working families and the homeless, live better lives. According to Levine, Eastside renters need to earn at least three times the minimum wage to be able to afford the average rental apartment. “That means that thousands who work here can’t afford to live here,” she said. Imagine’s goal, she added, is to allow them to do both.

Resident concerns While some residents who took the podium Monday voiced sympathy to Imagine’s aims, all aired their deep concerns over its Ridge placement. They say they were never informed about what was planned nearby. A number said they moved to Snoqualmie to get away from high-density surroundings, and raised issue with the tax break, and what the project would mean for local schools, property values and traffic on its single-street connector to the Parkway. Others asked that the city take its time and thoroughly consider the impact. Brandon James, an Elm Avenue resident and Seattle police officer, moved to

the Ridge a few months ago. James related how, during his life, he had worked his way up from affordable housing. “I was able to pull my bootstraps up and provide for my family,” James said. “I was able to afford a $500,000 house in a nice community to get away from the issues I grew up with in an urban, low-income environment.” James echoed a number of speakers when he argued that Snoqualmie is not prepared for a 160-unit housing community. He urged the city to talk to cities like Kent or Federal Way, and learn how such large rental communities affect cities around them. “I can almost promise you that their impact on police alone would dramatically increase,” James said. “Snoqualmie Ridge is not a community that has services for low-income families,” he added. “There’s no collective set of cheap child care… transportation, entry-level jobs. They’re just not in this community… To invite this neighborhood in our community—it’s not proper.” “We as taxpayers have the right to say how much our property taxes go up so this can be somebody’s dream,” commented Ridge resident Jan Bonner. “The children in our neighborhood are being bussed because the Snoqualmie Valley School District doesn’t have the space to educate them,” said Charlene Lewalski, a resident of Norman Avenue, who raised a concern over school impacts as the school workforce shrinks by about a dozen positions. “So with less teachers, how are you going to educate the children that are going to be in 160 units? Wouldn’t the

taxes that you’re going to allow them not to pay help with your school budget?” “We worked 40 years and saved our money so we could live in a place like this,” added Keith Lewalski, Charlene’s husband.

City considerations The city zoned for high-volume housing at that parcel nearly a decade ago, according to City Attorney Pat Anderson. “Realize, folks… there are densities that were entitled on those parcels since the inception of (Snoqualmie Ridge) Phase 2,” Mayor Matt Larson said. “We would be sued by the developer” if the city blocked all plans. “Even if it wasn’t affordable housing, there would be some units down there. There would be traffic impacts, there would be kids.” Larson said the city will do its best to address issues in the coming weeks. Levine said the same. “We understand and hear, and have taken copious notes,” she said. “We want to be an asset to your community.” There is no immediate rush to approve the project, said Eric Evans, Imagine’s Director of Housing Development. “This is an important decision for you,” he said. “We welcome the time you need to make an informed decision.” “We share your concerns,” Councilman Kingston Wall told the audience. “We hear you.” • An ordinance on a housing tax exemption is being considered by a council finance and administration committee. A public hearing is to be scheduled.

The moment arrives

Cedarcrest’s ‘sparkling’ Class of 2012 looks back on high school lessons, ahead to new dawn By Seth Truscott Editor

As Cedarcrest High School’s Class of 2012 filed past, eyes firmly fixed on the future, English teacher Michelle Parish’s high-fives and smiling face gave them one last high school connection. “All these kids are hard workers,” Parish said after the last robed graduate had passed. “They’re funny. They kind of sparkle, this class. They break out in song in the middle of class. You leave the room, and they’ll end up dancing. They’re a sweet group.” As commencement ended, to the tune of The Wailers’ “Three Little Birds,” Cedarcrest’s 198 former seniors, filed out of Redmond’s Overlake Community Church for hundreds of embraces, many smiles and tears. “I couldn’t be more proud,” said Shawna Ventura, awaiting her son Jeffrey Cox, following the ceremony. Cox had been challenged by many surgeries and health issues, and “we thought he wouldn’t graduate until he was 21,” Ventura said. “He’s graduating with his peers all on his own.” To celebrate, a big family gathering with many siblings and two sets of grandmas and grandpas had come to town. “Everybody came,” Ventura said. “It feels wonderful and I’m glad that it’s over,” said just-graduated Jazmin Baker, who surrounded herself with friends, rushing from group to group as the balmy evening fell June 15. “You know, I’m going to miss everybody here. It’s a touching time.” “It’s kind of unreal,” said Alena Scott, who helped emcee the ceremony. “It hit me the moment I got my diploma.” After Cedarcrest, she’ll attend Bellevue College, then pursue a career in teaching. “Honestly, it feels exactly the same as walking through a door,” said grad Addison Stillion. “I don’t really feel that different. I’m just on my way to the next thing.” That next thing will be two years of study at Bellevue College, followed by a mission for Addison’s Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

ber this time, and never forget where you came from.” To valedictorian speaker Kathryn McClintic, graduation finally became real to her that evening, as she donned cap and gown. “Never again will I have to wake up at 5:20, try to prevent a fashion apocalypse, grab my double-shot soy latte and race the bell as I hurry to class,” she remarked. In her speech, McClintic offered what advice she could to fellow grads. “What I learned, I learned from you,” she said. “All I can tell is, you cannot do it alone.” McClintic said she struggled to find her place in school. Looking, back, she remembered the “people who stepped in at the right moment to encourage us, comfort us… teachers, mentors, our parents, all stood by us.” She regretted that she didn’t collaborate more in high school. “In the future, surround yourself with people who challenge you,” the valedictorian said. “Allow them to show you a different angle…. Only by working together can we reach our full potential.” The keynote speaker, Cedarcrest teacher Dan Armstrong, shared “Lies my teachers (and other grown ups) told me.” Humor mixed with hard realities in Armstrong’s speech to the graduates. The truth is, he said, that life will go on at Cedarcrest, and that the perks of youth, of being protected, motivated and celebrated—are at an end. “Now, on the cusp of adulthood, you need to be aware that when you walk out those doors tonight, things are going to get a lot harder,” Armstrong said. “Your professors, bosses, the world at large, don’t know who you are, and are not yet impressed. You need to know what they already know: For every winner, there’s a loser. That effort should never be mistaken for results. Respect for your elders and supeAddison Stillion, riors is the norm. You don’t check text mesCedarcrest grad sages in a lecture or meeting. And that luck is a big factor in success, and it is not distributed evenly. Work ethic is not something to be scoffed at, and ambition is not a four-letter word.” “Now you’re on our team,” Amstrong continued. “You’re just starting your adult lives, and the possibilities before you are nearly limitless. It won’t be easy, but few things worth doing are. There will be tough moments along the way, and you will choose whether you see them as obstacles or opportunities.” Friends, teachers and family will be there to help, he added. “Just as we’ve helped shape you, we’ll continue to support you. You’ve left our schools with many lasting memories.” At Cedarcrest, the buses will run, the clubs and sports will continue. “Cedarcrest won’t be better or worse without you, just different,” Armstrong concluded. “We do appreciate you. We wish you all the best. And we will miss you. That, Class of 2012, is no lie.”

“I don’t really feel that different. I’m just on my way to the next thing”

Words to remember Music, laughter, lessons and heartfelt words marked Cedarcrest’s 19th commencement. “Today, we stand at the edge of a great adventure,” said student emcee Alena Scott. We are going forward into a new world, and leaving behind friends, teachers and old ways.” “We are all unique and confident,” she said. “It is a time of growth and learning about the world,” added co-emcee John Collin Hall. “Class of 2012, remem-

School’s out! Last day of school in Snoqualmie marked with smiles, goodbyes Photos by Emilee Ruhland Valley Record Intern

The last day of school at Snoqualmie Elementary saw a lot of smiles from children and parents alike. As a small boy and girl searched the lost and found for a Gap sweatshirt and blue jacket, nearby parents talked about summer plans and vacations. Lined by the door, third graders counted down the last seconds to summertime, and many children hugged their teachers before running for the bus or their parents. After waving goodbye to the buses with the teachers, ‘Miss S.E.S.’ Lynn Kehoe could be seen walking back talking to the many teachers she has helped throughout years of volunteering in classrooms. Kehoe confided that it was her “last hurrah.” Many fifth graders could be seen in front of the school celebrating their “last hurrah” at the school, as well. School resumes in the Snoqualmie Valley School District on Wednesday, Aug. 29.

A bond - then a plan?

It would seem that some members of the school board believe that they can keep bonding us to death and thereby ratchet their way to approval. In their carte blanche support for a bond — then a plan — the board sounded much like Nancy Pelosi in her infamous claim that “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it”! Board member Carolyn Simpson, however, seemed to be a voice of reason reminding the board that “other schools have done successful remodels without relocating students.” Now that’s refreshing! Pursue a line of thinking that doesn’t involve building another school and our considered opposition that defeated the bond last time might turn into support. Share the data, warts and all, pros-and cons and quit treating the public as a PR problem to be managed. Trust the people to come to a proper conclusion. I gave this board, some time back, a reference to a major construction firm that specializes in ultra-low-impact multistory additions where they place the new multistory addition right over the top of existing school structures — so no teardown with savings in cost and human logistics.

Whether that is the best scheme or not, this board needs to take a lesson from the Boy Scouts; “A scout is thrifty.” While a prudent plan would time the heaviest construction during summer break, if our students have to endure the sounds of hammering nails, I’d say, “Welcome to the real world!” Steve Marquis Fall City

Corrections • In the June 13 story on Mount Si High School’s commencement, teacher Karen Eddy was quoted incorrectly. Eddy did not say, “by God.” • The “Search on for break-in suspects” story in the May 30 issue mistakenly reported that a home in the 8600 block of Leitz Avenue Southeast had nothing stolen following a break-in. The home actually had almost $30,000 worth of items stolen, but the home that had reported a break-in earlier that same day, May 2, reported nothing stolen. The article also stated that police found a back window “left open” at the home. The window was presumably left open by the thief, who was spotted leaving the home and getting into the passenger side of a blue-full-sized pickup truck. We regret the errors.

History FROM 1 The Moore House has been in the ParmeleeAnderson-Pike family since the 1940s. Irene spent part of her childhood here, and so did her children. Now grown, they’ve been helping her restore the house to its rightful place as one of Fall City’s historic treasures. Leading a tour of the building, Irene starts in the living room, where the dusty, tarp-covered piano contrasts with the clean new wallpaper, a floral pattern in purple, her daughter Kris’s favorite color. Irene and Kris chose the pattern, and Kris’s sensibilities are apparent here as elsewhere. “We didn’t want it too vintage,” Irene says. “But not too modern, either.” Kris will soon move in, as the third generation of her family to live in the King County landmark.

Original house The Moore home has been in Irene’s family longer than anyone else’s. At this point, some locals have started referring to it as the Parmelee house. But the original name is still official. Fall City sawmill worker and entrepreneur Charlie Moore bought the lot in 1905, for $40, and built the house of lumber from the Preston Mill. The building’s timber, board-and-batten construction is unique. The home is one of the best-preserved early houses in King County, according to the Fall City Historical Society, and is a rare surviving example of vertical plank work instead of studs. It may be a century old, but “now it’s completely strong, because it’s been completely sheeted, new siding, foundation, roof. It’s one of the strongest buildings in Fall City,” Irene said. Charles and his wife Minnie operated a restaurant on River Street—the future Redmond-Fall City Road—that started as the Olympia Bar and later became a series of confectionaries.

Irene was in the sixth grade when they moved in. In those days, there was no inside bathroom. A long porch led to the root cellar. In 1950, a brother enclosed that porch, turning it into a kitchen, now the house’s utility room. The original kitchen is now going over to culinary purposes again, part of a complete remodel that’s touched almost every aspect of this place. Photo Courtesy FC Historical Society

The Charlie Moore family and home in 1905. Charles loved animals, owning a pair of skunks, oppossums which may have been the first in the state, and a pet bear cub. According to Fall City Historical Society accounts, that bear would follow Minnie around and hold on to her dress. Eventually, the bear grew too big to handle, and was given to one of Fall City’s saloons. Legend says the bear drank beer with the best of the local crowd until he got too mean, and had to go. A 1912 photo shows Charlie and Minnie Moore with their family, in front of their home. Lifetime Valley resident Charles Alva “Chuck” Moore was born in that house in 1907. He lived more than a century and was a Fall City Days grand marshal in 2008. According to the Fall City Neighbors newsletter, the Moore house was bought by different people in the 1920s, 30s and 40s. It was probably in 1944 when Irene’s mother arranged to buy the 40-year-old place. A single mother, widowed when Irene’s father passed away when she was 7, Elizabeth Parmelee had already had to make a quick move to a new home in an old house a year or so prior. Life was hard. “We lived on welfare,” Irene remembered. “They didn’t give you enough to survive on.” Mrs. Parmelee managed to scrape together $1,000 to buy the Moore House, which became her home for more than 40 years, and a center for her family and daughter Irene’s, who returned to stay here during their life’s journeys.

Rehabilitation There are still echoes of the past here, and a promise of continuity for the future. Touring the house, Pike stops to inspect a rickety wooden chair—her grandfather’s, rescued from his ranch on the Carnation road, unvarnished and showing its age. She spends a few minutes arranging its slats, piecing it back together on its place of honor on the front stoop. “I haven’t got the heart to throw it away,” Irene says. It’s the same way with this house, which was left to her in 1987. Restoring this place is a legacy and duty to the late Elizabeth Parmelee. “It was always her dream to get a new foundation, to get it fixed up,” Irene said. “It never happened. She’d be so happy to see how this house looks now.” Perhaps someone less attached to the Moore House might have sold it off and never gone to all this trouble. But Irene wouldn’t think of it. “I felt it was my duty to fix it up and make it livable,” she said. In 2003, Irene set out to rehabilitate the building. Enlisting several of her children, Irene methodically worked on every aspect of the project, using financial help from the county and 4Culture. The most recent grant was a $10,000 4Culture grant to repair the windows. In May, Irene received a John D. Spellman historic preservation award from King County, recognizing her for her family’s rehabilitation of the home. It’s still a work in progress, but Kris will probably be settling in in a matter of months.

Irene ticks off what’s needed now, like the new window moldings from Seattle, or the sconces for the front porch. A purple-painted bathroom is coming together, though it’s hard to find period hardware. Irene delightedly shows off the new tile for the entry, and the custom work needed for the stairs leading down to the front doors. “The stairway is my pride and joy,” she said. Upstairs, the dormer is pretty much finished, complete with an antique sewing machine. It’ll be a nice place for Kris to read, her mother says. “This was my room,” says Irene, showing off its small cubby and freshly papered walls. Original beams are visible along one wall, but missing is the closet rod that held the clothes of her youth, and her older sister. “She got married and moved away, I got the bigger room,” Pike said. “I never spent any time in here except to sleep.” As children, “it was great living in Fall City.” Irene used to have plenty of parties, and the occasional game of spin the bottle, as a teen— ”We were good kids,” she says. Irene’s old room will now be daughter Kris’s room. Kris has her memories, too, mostly of grandmother, Elizabeth, but also from when she lived here. Kris recalls the time her brothers played a joke, throwing nightcrawlers in her window. The pie cherry tree out front is long gone, where the children used to often climb, and often get into trouble. So are the two halftame pet ducks, Moonbeam and Sunshine, who battened on the slugs in the backyard, then left for good years later when the family decided it was time to let them go on the Snoqualmie River. A piece of the old concrete foundation still sits outside. It’s a planter now, filled by Kris with foxglove, iris and plenty of purple pansies. “It really doesn’t look any different than it did,” remarked Irene, gazing at the house’s white walls and green trim from the side lawn. “That’s the color I trimmed it in when I painted it, years and years ago… in my 30s.”

Breaking boundaries

Snoqualmie Valley Record • June 20, 2012 • 9

In so many fields, the Valley should take pride in what its women are doing


here’s nothing that a woman can’t do. That’s what Jackie Andrewjeski says and believes, and it’s a talk that she walks daily. Andrewjeski is a personal mythbuster for anyone who’s ever thought of women as the weaker sex. Not only does she hold down a job as a fitness instructor—for both men and women—at three local fitness centers, she’s also a certified teacher with a math and science background. One of her main missions is to show girls that they should never be afraid of pushing into traditional male-dominated fields. Back in her native New Zealand, she noticed that all the science and math teachers were gray-haired, bespectacled males. But she wasn’t about to let that stop her, and she was helped along by a publicity campaign trumpeting this fact: Girls can do anything. This week marks the Valley Record’s fifth publication of our Women in Business yearbook, a tally of the Valley’s frankly amazing number of women entrepreneurs—I wouldn’t be surprised if there weren’t more women than men operating businesses here. It’s always been a venue Seth Truscott to interview and publicize the Valley Record Editor Valley’s movers and shakers. It just so happens that a lot of them are women. Women we’ve profiled include:

Are women more or less entrepreneurial than men?

Most of the women we talk to aren’t just employees, but mothers, friends, part of a wider community. They know there is more to life than just work. But they also understand that you can’t put off today what must be done before tomorrow. There are good lessons for everyone, man or woman, boy or girl. Young people, especially, should take their examples to heart. No matter your background, no matter what lot you were born to, one person—you—is the arbiter of your future.

Women in Business Welcoming women, mommies and babies Valley midwife makes a practice of treating women as whole people

“Well, there are mommies, and there are babies.”

By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

What she said was “My belief is every woman deserves a midwife.” What that means, especially to those not familiar with midwives, is that every woman should enjoy a special relationship with their health care practitioners. Roxanne Spring, a certified nurse midwife, explains, “Midwife means ‘with woman,’ so when you come in for an appointment to discuss your health… would you not rather sit down and talk with someone who honors the fact that you and your body are very important in this pursuit of health and wellbeing? That your body’s wisdom is very vital? Because we are actually built to heal.” On a traditional visit to a doctor, Spring said, a pregnant woman might not get the time and attention she wants to discuss all of her concerns, or any changes that might be happening during the pregnancy. Offering that time, Spring says, “is an integral part of the quality of care that I want to provide. That’s the commitment.” Oftentimes, especially after a baby is born, Spring will commit further, by seeing the mommy and baby at their home. It’s easier on the mommies, she says, and likely, improves her quality of care. By spending the time and building relationships with her mommies, she explained, she can “see them as a whole person,” she said, and care for them as such — “because context is important!”

Roxanne Spring, Certified Nurse Midwife, discussing a “typical birth”

Carol Ladwig/Staff Photo

Roxanne Spring holds a fetuscope, which she uses to assess the health of mother and child, at her cozy office. She has practiced midwifery for years, but just opened her North Bend practice in October. Spring, a practitioner since 1998, almost bubbles with information about her field. “It’s just been a phenomenal part of my life,” she said. “Motherhood, pregnancy, breastfeeding, eating healthy, and the lifestyles that are family centered have been the core of my life, for many years.” Officially, midwives are licensed

health care providers who tend to women, and their families, throughout their pregnancies. Nurse-midwives like Spring can provide life-long health care for women. All midwives support women’s physical, psychological and social well-being needs, provide education and counseling and offer postpartum support. They can prescribe

drugs, too, but prefer to avoid such interventions, especially during a woman’s labor. “Birth and labor are very, very unpredictable in real life, just like life is unpredictable,” Spring said. Hospitals may try to minimize that unpredictability by administering drugs to induce labor, or other interventions. Midwives, however, are known for their role in natural births — no doctors, no pain killers, and often, no hospitals. Since opening her practice in North Bend a few months ago, Spring has exclusively done out-of-hospital births, but she hopes to develop a relationship with an obstetrician so she can deliver in-hospital again in the future. In her career, she’s worked at both Overlake and Evergreen Hospitals as a midwife, and has been dismayed to find that “the interference with the natural process has become much more commonplace.” It’s not a criticism. Traditional doctors will always have a place, she said, and “I’m grateful for medical knowledge.” Some women in fact, should see only traditional physicians while pregnant, if they are at high risk. Midwifery is a safe option for low-risk pregnancies, between 60 and 80 percent of pregnancies, according to the American Pregnancy Association. It’s also becoming an easier choice to make, as insurance companies begin to cover midwifery. Spring is actually a preferred provider for several insurance companies. It’s a welcome change, for Spring, who used to offer childbirth education classes. “People would be incredibly motivated to have a birth of their choice, and then they would have to navigate a system and a provider that they thought were on the same page, and they really weren’t,” she said. Spring estimates she’s delivered more than 500 babies as a midwife, which doesn’t include her own six children. She started practicing again after her children were born because “I needed another outlet for this passion of mine!” Snoqualmie Valley Midwifery is located at 401 Ballarat Ave. N., North Bend, (425) 888-1018.

I am enthusiastic about guest service and making people happy. That passion led me to a career in hospitality and, after more than 20 years, I still love every minute of it. Over the years our guests have changed and so have their interests and expectations, so we are constantly evolving to offer new and unique experiences at the lodge. Changes in the economy, environmental awareness and a focus on organic products have brought new opportunities for us to explore. To complement the lodge’s apiary, we recently planted herb and vegetable gardens that provide organic ingredients to The Dining Room and The Spa as well as feed our bees! These sustainable offerings contribute to our environmental commitment and give our guests a uniquely Salish experience.

Education, perseverance help outgoing State Sen. Cheryl Pflug head back to college, take new state position By Seth Truscott Editor

From nurse and mother to state senator, Cheryl Pflug’s career has taken some dramatic turns. She begins a new chapter this summer, swapping her role on the senate floor for a job as one of six members of the Washington State Growth Management Hearings Board. The hearings board “is something most people haven’t heard of,” says Pflug. But the six members of the board, who weigh in on land disputes such as Snoqualmie’s Mill Area Annexation, Cheryl Pflug have the power to influence how local communities and the wider state grows. After representing a district that rode the growth wave of King County, Pflug says her new job is a natural fit. “We’re ground zero for these issues,” she says. With her family still living here, Pflug is sympathetic to “the whole… effort to preserve these pristine, beautiful surroundings, the character we love. At the same time, you’ve got to accommodate growth.” She can point to the area’s successes, such as the region’s two salmon hatcheries at Tokul Creek and Issaquah, the reopening of the Cedar River Watershed to sockeye, and the efforts in the early 2000’s to block a proposed new interstate, I-605, in the Snoqualmie Valley.

Days in office A fourth-generation Washingtonian, Pflug is a greatgranddaughter of Chester Morse, the visionary Seattle city engineer and water superintendent. Morse acquired the land for the Cedar River Watershed above North Bend. Pflug grew up, much of the time, outdoors, learning to ski with the Mountaineers at age 5. She became an accomplished equestrian competitor. She was valedictorian at

New education Pflug graduated May 12 with a law degree from Seattle University. Law school made her a better legislator, but balancing work and study was tough. With five legislative sessions this year, she had days instead of weeks to prepare for finals. Somehow, she also managed to make a trip to Pullman to see her son graduate from Washington State University. Finding balance between work and life has always been a struggle, especially in the legislature. There’s so many breakfast and evening meetings and weekend work, “it’s unlike any other job… I wouldn’t say there’s much balance involved in adding law school on top of that,” Pflug said. Rather’s it’s more about putting nose to grindstone.

“Sometimes, you just have to suck it up and get it done,” Pflug said. “I worked too hard,” she added. “Balance has been a process of learning for me. It’s not always an option to say, you know what, I need to quit working… I made a decision that I needed to work harder to get myself to a place where I could have balance.” That means a combination of determination, priorities and organization. “It’s about realizing that you have to get what has to be done, done today,” Pflug says. Going back to school at age 52 “was really kind of cool,” the Maple Valley resident said. “It keeps those gears turning,” she said. “I believe you want to expose yourself to as much information as you can.” She loved being around the 30-something students, listening to their stories and world-views. Her degree was worth the effort, and gives her a calling she can enjoy for years, and a new set of skills. “Increasingly for all of us, we have longer lifespans,” Pflug said. Retirement at 60, and living for another 40 years, appears financially daunting. “It’s wise to think about what you might enjoy doing that you could do at least part time, until you’re 75 or so,” she advises.

Thoughts on the legislature With her last day as a state senator set for July 1, Pflug looks back on a 13-year history, and ahead to a different experience. Her new job brings more power in a narrower area, she says. Yet she’ll miss the opportunity to solve problems for people as a legislator. As she leaves the statehouse, Pflug says she would advise her colleagues to understand their issues thoroughly and vote for the people, first. “Politics can trump what works for the people,” she said. “The bottom line is, ‘On this issue, my constituents’ best interest is served by voting this way, and I don’t really care what the party leadership is telling me.’” As an example, she looked back on the bipartisan effort that was needed to pass special legislation saving Si View Parks. She credited her first Senate seatmate, Brian Thomas, as well as Kent Mayor Suzette Cook and the late state legislator Ken Pullen, as inspirations. Pullen set an example for her as a representative, senator and county council member, while Cook encouraged Pflug during her campaigning days. Thomas in particular was a mentor for her, encouraging her to go to law school. As a woman legislator, Pflug admitted that it was sometimes challenging. “Men don’t realize it, but their voices are louder and deeper, and they will talk over the top of you sometimes,” she said. “You have to learn ways to let them know that they are going to need to know your opinion, and they’re going to have to hear it.”

Tahoma High School, named “Best Scholar” and “Most Likely to Succeed.” She raised four children while she sought her graduate degree in nursing, and became a critical care nurse. Pflug became a state legislator in 1999, appointed to the senate in 2003 to replace gubernatorial hopeful Dino Rossi, elected back the following year and again a few years later. In total, she has been elected to office 14 times. Pflug recalled that her political career began while she was standing in line at a health food store, child in tow, when small talk with fellow customers turned to politics. “Somebody said, “Are you going to precinct caucuses tonight?” Pflug related. “I said, ‘What’s a precinct caucus?” From there, things snowballed. “It’s like every other volunteer organization,” she said jokingly. “You show up twice and you’re in charge. The next thing I knew, I was district chair for the Republican party.” Pflug now looks back on a history of advocacy for schools and health care. According to her official biography, she was a deputy Republican leader who served on the Senate’s health and transportation committees, as well as the powerful Rules Committee. She authored Washington’s first-in-thenation legislation to create humane, mandatory treatment alternatives for non-violent, mentally ill offenders. To claim a third term, Pflug would have fought a primary race with Republican opponent Brad Toft. But five days after filing, she was tapped by Gov. Christine Gregoire to take the hearings board seat.

It has been a gift to be a part of our community with this great Snoqualmie River in our midst. I have felt so fortunate to work with my neighbors, first in Fall City since 2003 and now, here in old town Snoqualmie. Massage and Bodywork can be a potent vehicle in supporting one another through these times of great change. Bodywork Modalities such as Neuralmuscular, Cranial Balancing, deep tissue, Structural Muscle Balancing, Energy work and Acupressure Protocol are fascinating in the relief and freedom that they can provide. I also use joyful Somatic Movement patterns on the massage table which are relaxing to the entire nervous system and also useful at home for self maintenance. I find all this work very joyful and a teaching as well. I have taught classes up and down the valley in Somatic Movement and Yoga for 7 years and also have a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the UW. I am a Reiki Master and also a provider of most insurances. Massage lic # MA000004260

The role model

By Seth Truscott Editor

It’s a grand, scientific surprise: Brown iodine and bags of white, starchy water are ready to mix, but what will happen is anybody’s educated guess in teacher Kate Christenson’s second grade classroom at North Bend Elementary. At the head of the class, presenter Jackie Andrewjeski is waiting to guide this exploration of the concept of diffusion. “I like to bring little experiments,” says this sometime substitute teacher, who’s brought potatoes, red food coloring and other props to make her concepts clear. Her black T-shirt lists the periodic table in day-glo colors. Iodine isn’t just for owies, Andrewjeski explains. When it turns black after being rubbed on a piece of paper, she tells the students exactly why. There must be some starch in that paper, she explains. The big payoff

How do you maintain balance?

is the color change, when the seeping iodine turns the starchy water a deep purple.

Always active Most locals are probably familiar with Andrewjeski from her fitness classes at Si View Metro Parks, Ridge Fitness and the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA. But she’s also a certified high school teacher by trade, formerly a teacher at Mount Si High School. She now substitutes at North Bend Elementary, but not often, as her days are quite full as a fitness instructor. But she loves coming back to the science and math, her intellectual passions. “I really am a Jackie of all trades,” Andrewjeski. For more than eight years, she has been involved with the Relay for Life fundraiser for cancer research. Year after year, she is team captain of the Super Troopers team, actively recruiting folks from her fitness classes to take part. She’s also a member of the Forster Woods homeowners’ association, and takes part in an Encompass childcare cooperative. Andrewjeski is married

She lives in North Bend. For Women In Business, Andrewjeski answered a few questions about her life, work and calling.

How did your career start? “When we were living in West Seattle, I used to go to 24 Hour Fitness and work out, a lot. I was doing a lot of classes. My husband, Tom, said, ‘Why don’t you become an instructor?’ I thought, that’s a great idea. I did the training and certification, and I started

teaching step aerobics and cardio—that was the phase, back then, this was about 1995. When we moved out here, it was ridiculous for me to keep going into Seattle. I looked into teaching here in the Valley. This community center (Si View) was still under King County. I had a key (and sometimes) I was the only person in this building. I’d drag out the steps. I had a core contingent of gals who would come to my class. This building was faced with closure, (and) we did a big campaign to keep it open. Now, it’s so great to

see this center bring used. To me, it means so many things. We come to family nights, my kids have summer camp here, my daughter has dance classes, and I’ve been teaching here for years. It’s a core part of the community, a focal point, and I’m so pleased we’re able to keep this myriad of programs going.”

What’s something about you that others may not know? I went to a rodeo when I was a kid, and got third place on a sheep ride. I grew up outside of Christchurch,

“I’m very organized. I squeeze things in where I can, and try to make it work. I like to keep busy… Working out is great for me to get balance. Working out feeds that energy level. The more you work out, the more it gives that energy back. I sleep well at night because I work out. It’s a circle. My philosophy is, ‘Healthy body, healthy mind.’ Any kind of exercise, whether you’re going out for a walk, taking a class or getting on your bike, is critical. For women, in particular when you’re over 35, it’s essential to do some kind of weightbearing exercise. It prevents osteoporosis, gets your metabolism high to keep your weight in check, and makes you feel healthy and strong.”

Have you ever been challenged as a woman in business? “Gender hasn’t been an issue for me, to be honest. My degree is in chemistry and math. I always thought it was important, when I was at the high school, to have a female role model for kids… especially in math and science. For me, being that role model in the classroom is important. I feel that pride, of being a female in a field that’s typically dominated by males. Only you set your own limitations. Don’t feel limited by your gender. If you have a passion, go for it. Strive to attain that goal.”

Women in Business Business community Snoqualmie Valley Women in Business building local connections By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

Correctly predicting that a lot of women at the Snoqualmie Valley Women in Business lunch shared personality traits wasn’t much of a trick, but guest speaker Jessica Butts was still a little surprised by how very accurate she was. Butts, a psychotherapist speaking on how people’s personalities can improve their businesses, guessed that most of the 40-plus people in the room were Ns, or Intuitives, in the Myers-Briggs personality type inventory, like herself. Intuitives, she said, “take in things by their meanings, possibilities, we have hunches and speculations, and we go with our guts… we’re very theoretical, and we’re always thinking about the future,” Butts said. Only about 25 percent of the population are Intuitives, she continued, but they are usually found in high concentrations at

entrepreneurial gatherings. SVWIB’s June lunch was no exception, and almost all of the women raised their hands when Butts asked for a show of hands from the Ns. Some of the group’s 60 members are entrepreneurs, launching and running their own businesses — the organization’s Web master Pia Larson, stepping down from the role to focus on her growing business, brought as a guest to the meeting Vicki Bertero, co-owner of the new Bayan Mongolian Barbecue restaurant that opened on Snoqualmie Ridge late last week, for example. “You don’t have to be an entrepreneur,” though, says Michelle Comeau, a membership co-chairperson on the SVWIB board. All you really have to be is interested in your community, because community development and leadership are core values. “We’re always looking to help out,” said President Louise Wall. “That’s part of who we are as Women in Business.” Since its creation four years ago, Wall said the group has been actively involved in One VOICE events for needy families, helps at the Mount Si Food Bank, hosts an annual fashion show to benefit the Mount Si Senior Center, and participates every year in the North Bend Block Party coming up July 14. They also award a scholarship to a Mount Si High School graduate, and last year, the group helped the Mount Si DECA club with events. One of its latest ventures, WIBED, offers training classes, taught by members, to interested students. The group hopes to collaborate with the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce

on such training in the future, to enable more businesspeople to benefit from the groups’ knowledge. “Let’s get the wisdom together in our community,” member Kim Arellano summarized, to an enthusiastic response. The most exciting thing the group is talking about these days, though, is Pay it Forward Week. “Pay it Forward is going to be huge!” board member Kathy White announced. “It’s just such a Women in Business event, it’s totally how we live our lives.” The weeklong event, set for Oct. 14 to 21, is all about “doing something kind for someone else,” Debby Peterman explained to the group. “Part of this is going to be an opportunity for us to market SVWIB… but also to spread goodwill throughout the community.” “That’s going to be the big one,” said Wall. “We want it to be Valley-wide, we want it to be far-reaching, for everybody throughout the area to spread some love.” Yes, the group is also about networking, which most people agree is essential in business, but the approach is different, member Kimberly McMartin said. It starts with a relationship. White can’t emphasize the importance of relationships enough. After a moment’s thought, though, she can describe the group in a single sentence. “To the degree that we help others get what they need, we get what we need.”

Danielle set the record for triples in a season with eight, set by Testa in 1994 with seven. She also ranked first on the team in slugging percentage (.627), stolen bases (9) and posted 241 putouts. Massengill, who graduated from Mount Si High School in 2011, also earned a 4.0 grade point average at Thiel in her first year. Massengill is the daughter of Scott and Jill Massengill of North Bend.

‘Cat alumnus Justin Downer heads to Jessup

Mount Si football reloads for spring preview, jamboree By Seth Truscott Editor

Practice had ended, but Harrison Danna wasn’t ready to go home. The Chief Kanim Middle Schooler’s arm cocked back and then whipped the football toward a waiting swarm of fellow players, all future freshmen at Mount Si High School. It was their first opportunity in 2012 to play together as a team, and the boys were excited, growing skills and making friends from elsewhere in the Valley. “It’s good to come together—all three schools,” said Danna. That experience was part of Mount Si’s spring training week, June 4 to 8, capped by a varsity and junior varsity jamboree on Saturday, June 9. Mount Si players did well at Saturday’s jamboree. The varsity Wildcats had five touchdowns in 30 snaps, 10 apiece against Interlake, Inglemoor and O’Dea.

Spring preview At the opposite end of the field, Mount Si’s varsity and JV players drilled, with the older, bigger boys breaking through on offense. “Nice, nice!” A pleased Mount Si varsity head coach Charlie Kinnune was getting good looks from his strong crop of returners—more than 20 of them seniors this fall. About 100 players took the field. Mount Si has a full inventory of strong incoming seniors, returning starters and lettermen. Offensively, the Wildcat line will benefit from first-team-honored tight end Griffin McLain and guard Stephen Nnabue, and Blake Herman and Mitch Rorem will hold down center/tackle positions, rounded out by Tyler Rutherford and Keenan McVein. Junior-to-be Nick Mitchell, brother to past ‘Cats Josh and Taylor, made phenomenal strides in the offseason, and looks to soon be a Wildcat quarterback. Kalon Williams and Riley Reed both had injury-marked junior years, but showed flashes of greatness, Kinune said. Trent Riley, likewise, will be coming back from a knee injury this fall. He scored a number of touchdowns as a sophomore. League second-team receiver Tyler Button scored seven last year as a junior. He’s back, as is receiver Jimbo Davis, and Hunter Malberg, a returning first-team safety. Then there’s Mount Si’s kicker, senior-to-be Cameron Van Winkle, the team’s biggest scorer in 2011, going 18 for 21 field goals, shattering records. Van Winkle’s game-changing skills may be balanced by other aspects of the program. “We’re a different team this year,” Kinnune said. much this year.”

The big turnout for spring camp is phenomenal, the head coach said. “We’re lucky to have these numbers,” Kinnune said. It has to do with the growing popularity of the sport. Kids come to Mount Si and want to play—they played in middle school and little league, and so they’re excited.” “We support multi-sport athletes,” he added. “They know they can play other sports,” so they’re willing to try football.

William Jessup University men’s basketball coach Aaron Muhic last month announced the signing of transfer Justin Downer, Mount Si 2010 alumnus, to the Warriors program for 2012-13. Downer, of North Bend, transfers to the Warriors after two outstanding years at Skagit Valley Community College. As a sophomore, the sixfoot-one-inch guard led the team in scoring with 15 points a game, while averaging three rebounds and two assists a game. He was named team captain and ranked second in the NWAACC North League in three-point field goals made, while scoring in double digits in 17 of 22 games. Downer shot 40 percent from the three-point line over his two years for the Cardinals. In high school, Downer was a three-year varsity star at Fife and Mount Si High School. Downer is ready to get started with the Warriors. “The coaching staff was on me from day one and did not waiver in their commitment to me,” stated Downer. “I love the fact that WJU is a Christian University. I have a great opportunity to play basketball while continuing my education and my walk in faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. I can’t wait to get down to Rocklin to start next season.” Coach Muhic is excited to see Justin in a Warriors uniform next season. “I am very excited about working with Justin next season,” stated Coach Muhic. “He brings a great work ethic and desire to be great to the table. He competes with all his heart and gives us another great shooter. It will be a pleasure to be a part of his growth and development. I am eager to see how good he can be as we get the opportunity to champion Christ through sport.” William Jessup University will host defending national champions Oregon Tech University on November 9 in their first home game in the new Warriors Arena.

“It has to be this age group, and it has to be girls,” Roberts said, but not simply because those are the grant requirements. “We’d love to be able to have the opportunity for girls to get out and do this!” The weeklong camp will feature four robotics challenges that the girls, working in teams, will have to address. Roberts and Warren have developed realistic scenarios for the robotic tasks the girls will complete, starting with the first one, building a robot that will stay on the surface of the water (a small pool set up in a science room at Mount Si High School, which represents the real-world Puget Sound) as it travels out into a shipping lane to rescue a kayaker, and then back. Other challenges include a surface-level search pattern, underwater retrieval, and underwater collection and distribution. “And at some point, they may decide, ‘OK, our bot is not

working,’ and they have to rip their whole bot apart,” Roberts said, highlighting another lesson of the camp, on working together and deciding as a team how to finish a project. She is also arranging for several successful women scientists to speak during the camp, to show participants what’s possible for them. Roberts called them “amazing engineers and biologists,” adding “They’re pretty and normal and super-approachable. Plus, they’re moms!” Each day of the camp, July 23 to 27, will begin and end with a short quiz on the computer, Roberts said. It’s a way for the National Science Foundation to gather feedback on the camp and participants’ learning. “The kids don’t even realize it’s a survey,” she added. “It’s more like, ‘so, what do you know about this?’” The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, and is open to any girl going into grades 9-12 in the fall. Cost for the camp is $150 per participant, but Roberts said the grant included scholarship money, so anyone interested should sign up. Registration is online, at

Many of these players have been lifting or competing for most of the school year, so spring camp is about mental training. “We can do more teaching, slow things down a little,” said Kinnune. “We should do real well,” said Malberg. For him, the week was about developing depth in the program. He’s looking forward to his senior season. “I’ve been playing with these kids for seven years,” he said. “It’s sad that it’s our last season, but we’re going to make it count.” • Mount Si football next holds its speed camp and Junior Wildcat program, starting July 9.

Girl Scout troop gets second place in outdoor skills contest Valley Girl Scout Troop 42403 was awarded second place in an outdoor skills competition, April 28 to 29 at Camp River Ranch in Carnation. Competing against 12 other troops, the fifth graders tested their skills in first aid, knot tying, knife safety and outdoor cooking with a propane stove, fire, and box ovens. The girls wowed judges with a bench made from lashed ropes and twigs. They also cooked a brunch of eggs with cheese, onions and peppers, and apple sauce, sausages, fresh-baked muffins and coffee. The girls spent hours preparing for the competition, and it paid off with their medal finish during a sunny camping weekend. Troop members are from Opstad and North Bend Elementary Schools, or are home schooled. Laurie Edwards of North Bend is their leader.

Alternative transit? Metro to ‘right-size’ bus service in Valley, rural areas Recognizing that a one-sizefits-all approach to bus service may not meet every community’s needs, Metro Transit is proposing to find more costeffective, innovative transit options for rural King County. A proposed five-year plan, sent to the King County Council provides a framework for alternatives to fixed-route bus service in less populated areas. It is supported by Metro’s new strategic planning policies, and recommends three areas—Snoqualmie Valley, Southeast King County and Vashon Island—for initial demonstration projects. The goal is to provide transportation services of the right size, scale, and type that better reflect the needs of each community Metro serves. For instance, Dial-a-Ride bus service or all-day community shuttles may offer better travel options than traditional bus service that is less productive and more expensive. “This alternative services plan will allow Metro to work

directly with communities to come up with out-of-thebox approaches that are both affordable and tailor-made to meet the transit needs of more residents,” said Metro General Manager Kevin Desmond. “I look forward to reviewing the details of this proposal for more ways to improve the efficiency of our system,” said Councilmember Kathy Lambert, who represents northeast King County.

Flags at halfstaff Friday for fallen soldier The flag at Snoqualmie’s American Legion Post 79 will be lowered to halfstaff on Friday, June 22, in accordance with Legion traditions and Wash. Gov. Chris Gregoire’s directive. The governor directed that Washington and United States flags at all state facilities be lowered to half-staff in memory of U. S. Army First Lieutenant Mathew G. Fazzari, 25, of Walla Walla. He died June 6 in Afghanistan when his helicopter crashed after receiving enemy fire. Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business Friday, June 22. Residents and Legion members are encouraged to display their private flags at half staff or with a mourning streamer.

Sallal Grange’s Clark wins cake award The Sallal Grange is pleased and proud to announce that community member Laurie Clark won a ribbon in the King County Pomona Baking Contest for her cake. Her work, an artistic garden patch over an apple spice cake, was judged worthy of a Blue Ribbon. Laurie’s baking and candy artistry have graced many Sallal fundraisers over the past year. She said, “I can’t believe it. I was looking through boxes which were my grandmother’s from the 1940’s. She also won a Pomona Blue Ribbon when she was part of the Leavenworth Grange.”
