Harvest of hope Gleaning partnership between farms, volunteers achieves first successful year of feeding the hungry By Seth Truscott Editor

The 2013 freshman class may be going to a separate building from their older schoolmates, but they will have a true high school experience, say district administrators. “They’re still Mount Si High School students,” said Vernie Newell, who gave a recent update on the proposed Freshman Learning Center to the Snoqualmie Valley School Board. Newell, now principal at Snoqualmie Middle School, will serve as principal for the freshman branch when it takes over Snoqualmie Middle School next year. See CAMPUS, 6

Car chase gone very wrong Tolt neighborhood locked down after man crashes stolen car, gets stuck in a bog

There’s nothing quite like a vegetable freshly picked from the farm. So says Benjamin Rasmus, a Rotary Club member and sometime harvester himself, who joined a half-dozen fellow Rotarians on an overcast day in September to pick beans on Carnation’s Oxbow Farm. But these veggies aren’t for his plate. Rasmus hefts a boxful of green beans that are slated, today, for the Hopelink delivery truck and, eventually, the dinner plates of low income Valley residents. Rasmus, who is program director for the Rotary Club’s First Harvest program, was among a group of gleaners—volunteers who pick seasonal crops at Valley farms to help fight hunger.

A 23-year-old transient man, trying to evade police in the Tolt Hill area recently, was rescued by those same authorities, but not before he crashed a stolen car, locked down a neighborhood, and got himself trapped in a bog. According to police reports, the man had reportedly been involved in drug activity at a Carnation home around 2:19 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17. Duvall-Carnation Police Officer Lori Batiot said a neighbor had called about drug activity that was in progress, but the suspect had left before Batiot arrived.

Six story awards for Valley Record at annual Better Newspaper contest Putting human faces on serious topics like homelessness, Medicaid, erosion—and a lighthearted one, calendar pin-up ‘Tractor Men’—helped the Snoqualmie Valley Record pick up six story awards in the Washington Newspaper Publishers’ Association’s 2012 Better Newspaper Contest. The Record was judged among papers of similar circulation. Staff Reporter Carol Ladwig picked up a first-place award for best long news story for “The Invisible People,” an exploration of homelessness in the Valley, published last winter. “This in-depth news story was well-written, well-sourced and heavy on the perspective of the homeless, not the bureaucratic nonsense that it couldSNOQUALMIE have been filled with had the reporter taken another angle,” judges wrote. “Invisible people” was part of Ladwig’s “Faces of homelessness” series, which claimed a ‘Jimmy The second-place award for compreMac’s’ invisible legacy hensive coverage of a single issue. people lives on “From the first sentence— ’Some day soon, Joey Bradshaw is going to be warm again’— this series grabbed me,” a judge wrote. “’Invisible; is a great way to describe homelessness; most every community has INDEX its share. home destroyed by fire I’m happy that this excellent Above, Preston Carol Ladwig’s reporter and writer—her work on “Invisible People” story the gay marriage issue (“Marriage on local homelessness Plans” and “Power of a single picked up a first place word,” March 7, 2012) also was industry award.

Classmates Eric Forslin, Greg Gebhard and Ryan Reed remember a bitter moment in the autumn of 2005, when Mount Si’s state football hopes stopped one just game shy of the playoffs. Following a heartbreaking loss to rival Mercer Island, varsity players walked silently onto the bus for home. When the driver inquired how the game went, no one spoke. Then center James McKiernan broke the silence with a well-timed wisecrack: Just drive, he told the bus driver in no uncertain terms, eliciting smiles from his teammates.

Some day soon, Joey Bradshaw is going to be warm again. It will be only temporary, while he’s recovering from shoulder surgery in a transitional home, but he hopes that it will mark a turning point for him. If all goes well, he envisions a quick recuperation, so he can get back to work soon, buy a cell phone and call his kids in Oregon to let them know he’s OK. Longer term, he might—maybe—be able to save some money and get a place, if he can find a roommate who’s not on drugs. Until then, he says, picking his way through rocks on a bank of the South Fork of the Snoqualmie ‘The invisible people’ is River, he’ll the first of a two-part series just enjoy his on the lives of the homeless spectacular in the Snoqualmie Valley. views of the elk, raccoons and other wildlife that go past his place, and continue to live with the cold, the wind, the midnight taggers and other vandals.

Sheltering under a highway bridge in North Bend, Joey Bradshaw has been homeless for 12 years, one of several dozen people who live on the streets of the Upper Valley. A former logger who has struggled with divorce, health and drug issues, he is doubtful about regaining a roof over his head. “I hope for our economy to get better, so that things could turn around for even I,” he says.

An EF&R firefighter works to control a home fire in rural Preston Thursday morning, Dec. 220. The home was a total loss, but the couple living there escaped uninjured. The fire is believed to have been accidental.

Early a.m. blaze guts couple’s house By Valley Record Staff

One firefighter was injured while battling an early-morning blaze in the 8300 block of 293 Avenue Southeast in Preston Thursday, Dec. 22. The injury, burns to the face, was the only one reported in the incident, which began at 2:45 a.m. when the couple living there called 9-1-1 to report their garage and carport were on fire.

The fire quickly spread from the garage to the two-story home, but the couple, said to be in their 50s, was able to escape without injury. Firefighters faced several challenges in stopping the blaze, which was contained to the property. However, the fire destroyed the home and nearby buildings, and damaged some of the large trees around the home. SEE BLAZE, 2

“We don’t know what’ll happen if it keeps up,” adds Jan.

The lost levee

Editor Seth Truscott took first place for government reporting for “The Hungry River,” a 2011 look at how North Bend residents were dealing with King County in an attempt to stop river erosion at their home. “I have to be honest, when I took a first glance at this story, I was dreading it,” the judge wrote. “But it kept my attention the whole time, and incorporated great detail. Very well-written.” Truscott took a second-place nod for best health story for “Balancing Act,” a look at Medicare-funding challenges at the local Transitional Health Center. “Nice to put a face on government cuts to Medicaid,” judges wrote. Truscott “does a nice job of explaining the proposed legislation, the need for it, and its possible shortfalls. Wellbalanced. Not over the top.” Truscott also took second place for best environmental story for “Power of the North Fork: Builder, kayakers stake out issues on proposed hydropower plant.” The story told how a dam developer and recreationalists faced off over a proposed hydroelectric dam on the Snoqualmie’s North Fork. “An interesting read on what could be a dry subject: power plants,” judges said. Truscott “does a good job of setting the scenes in which conversations take place.” Vol. 98, No. 7

Harvest Festival

Holding a binder of memories and written appeals, North Fork property owners Jan and Robert “Sully” Sullivan stand on the decaying Shake Mill Left Levee, watching as erosion steadily encroaches on their home. Now candidates for buyout, the 40-year residents have watched the levee disappear in four years.

Homeowners watch and wait as North Fork devours levee, property




Jan Sullivan won’t go any closer to the crumbling edge of the Shake Mill Left Levee, but husband Robert “Sully” Sullivan is bolder. He takes a few steps closer to the void, where the grass of the earthen berm ends in a clean break, its base invisible under the overhang. Jan’s caution is understandable. She and Sully have watched the levee that marks the northern edge of their home and business property disappear, faster and faster, over the last four years. The thought of the speedy devouring of their property keeps them up at night. Worry “hits us like a ton of bricks,” Sully says.

The Shake Mill Left Levee, also known as the North Fork Bridge Levee, was built in the early 1960s to protect the bridge and nearby 428th Avenue from erosion. Gloria McNeely, a local historian and retired employee of the King County flood division, recalled how the levee system in North Bend originated. Voters approved a $5 million bond in 1960 following a big 1959 flood on the Snoqualmie River that killed a driver on Interstate 90. That money paid for levees. “They were built with the participation of the riparian property owners,” McNeely said. SEE LEVEE, 6

GLEANERS FROM 1 “A lot of times, people who come out and glean have never been on a farm,” Rasmus says, “let alone an organic farm in a beautiful valley like this. “You get someone out here, and they start to become more aware of where their food comes from. What a pea straight from the vine tastes like,” he adds. “That can be an eye-opening experience.” Sno-Valley Harvest, a gleaning program of Rotary First Harvest and Hopelink, partners with farms and local food banks to bring fresh produce to families that need it. Since its inception last December, more than 70 Sno-Valley Harvest gleaners have gathered more than 6,500 pounds of produce—1,300 alone from Oxbow Farms. All that effort makes a difference, says Lisa Harper, a gleaning coordinator with Hopelink and an AmeriCorps Vista volunteer. For low income families, access to fresh fruits and veggies remains a big challenge. “The food we’ve brought in has been very well-received,” Harper said. “No one has said ‘no.’ All the food banks are very excited about bringing in more fresh vegetables.” Gleaned produce goes to nine different food banks in the area, including the Mount Si Food Bank, Snoqualmie Tribe Food Bank, the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank, the Preston food bank, Sno-Valley Senior Center in Carnation, and Hopelink’s five food banks, which includes one in Carnation. “We’re looking to create channels to make sure the food we

bring in gets to people,” Harper Be a gleaner says. These aren’t throw-away You don’t need farm expericrops.

In its first gleaning visit last December, the group picked beets. Their second trip, in March, was for overwintered greens. “Coming into this, and talking to farmers, people thought it was (all) end-of-season crops—squash, potatoes, carrots,” Harper said. “So I started making suggestions.” When she found a farmer willing to share spinach, she told the

Getting started Harper is the point of contact for both gleaners and farmers. “When a farmer identifies a gleaning opportunity, he calls me,” she says. Harper learns what kind of produce is available and when—usually, she has a three-to-five-day window to get volunteers in and out. She e-mails volunteers and gets a team ready. “They know when it is and what we’ll be harvesting,” Harper says. Gleaners come from many walks of life throughout the Puget Sound region. Since everyone may not bring personal experience in the farm or garden, Sno-Valley Harvest provides on-the-spot training for all crops—important, Harper says, because of the variety, as picking peas is different than picking onions or broccoli. The Rotary Club is excited to get people involved in fighting hunger in their communities, says Rasmus. “Both the tangibles and the intangibles are pretty huge,” he said. “Leveraging our Rotary connections, we’re able to do a great deal.” Not only can Rotarians give their time, he says, they can also give financially to support the gleaning program. “Volunteer work can be contagious,” Rasmus said. “Maybe they’ll go back and tell the club. Next time, there’s a dozen.” Learn more about Sno-Valley Harvest at snovalleyharvest.

other farmers. Pretty soon, spinach and lots of other varieties of produce were on the menu at local food banks. Oxbow, in particular, has been a big supporter of gleaning effort from the beginning. During the peak season, Sno-Valley Harvest came out twice each month. “They’re just really on board,” Harper says. “It’s amazing to think about the food going to people that need it,” said Adam McCurdy, Oxbow’s Farm Production Manager, said in an interview. Oxbow’s efforts are about striking a balance between making a living and helping others. Giving food is a part of his vision as a farmer and a “huge part of our social mission.”

Self improvement Wins for Mount Si tennis’ senior Reid, McLaughlin, KingCo ahead By Seth Truscott Editor

Above, junior Kevin McLaughlin fires back at his Patriot opponent Oct. 9 at Tibbetts Park. Far right, Mount Si senior Allen Reid serves during play against Liberty’s Matthew Cao on October 9, during the team’s final regular-season match. Reid won in a tense tiebreak round. Below, Royce Schwartzenberger returns a Liberty hit during play on the road. He challenged for a spot on varsity.

For a guy who, for all intents and purposes, never handled a tennis racket before this fall, Allen Reid carries himself pretty well on the court. Reid, a senior who came to the game from baseball and lacrosse, has a strong right arm and good forehand swing. Self taught, he’s still working on his backhand. A most-improved player on the Mount Si varsity team, Reid’s super-tie-breaker win was a highlight of Mount Si’s struggle with Liberty last Tuesday, Oct. 9 at Tibbetts Valley Park in Issaquah. In their final sets of the season, Reid and junior Kevin McLaughlin won their sets. Mount Si ended up falling 2-5 to the Patriots, but the final score doesn’t reflect how close Mount Si was to a major win. McLaughlin, Mount Si’s no. 3 singles player, had a tough first set, falling to Robert Cunningham, 4-6, but went on to take the win, 6-4, 6-3. At no. 1 singles, Mount Si’s Josh Hamann won his first set against the Patriots’ Marek Pierepiekarz, 6-1, but struggled in the second set, 3-6 and fell 0-6 in the third. Matthew Griffin, the no. 2 singles player, had a tough opening set against Justice Canley, but won his second round 6-2. After that tough first round, coach “told me to hit to his backhand,” Griffin said. “I won that, pretty badly for him.” The third set, however, didn’t go the junior’s way; Griffin went 3-6 in the final. At no. 4 singles, Reid took down Matthew Cao of Liberty in two sets, 6-1, 7-6, ending in the tie-breaker. Reid says he was surprised to fall behind in the first set, but “Once I was five-zip, I just let it all fly.” The wins stacked up, and he took it in stride. See tennis, 22

On behalf of the Mount Si Football program and the Wildcat Football Booster Club, we want to express our thanks to the entire Snoqualmie Valley for their support at Friday’s game against Bellevue. Watching the excitement that a community can share for a high school athletic event is something that all of us will never forget. Despite the outcome, Friday night’s game demonstrated all that is good about interscholastic athletics and living in the Snoqualmie Valley. A typical Friday night football game involves lots of work from the staff at the school district and the high school, but the Bellevue game was new territory. Thanks to everyone in the Mount Si offices who dealt with the barrage of phone calls for tickets. Thanks to all of the facilities employees for their efforts in preparation and clean-up of the stadium. Thanks to the Mount Si athletic office for all of their planning, coordination, and cooperation. Thanks to the technology group for their assistance in making the game accessible for those not fortunate enough to get a ticket. The game wouldn’t have gone so smoothly without all of your efforts. The other element that makes every Friday night so successful is the involvement of all the different groups from the high school, including the cheer squad, the band, ASB, and our large student body. Each of these groups adds something special to the atmosphere of a Mount Si Football game—something that can’t be replicated at another KingCo school. Mount Si Football is committed to making a difference in our community and in the lives of our student-athletes. Some of the ways that we do this is by providing year round academic support, off-season training, financial assistance, character development through the “W.E.L.D. Core Covenants” and community service opportunities. Mount Si Football is comprised of 120-plus student-athletes, 20 coaches, three professional support staff members, five student volunteers, and 100-plus parent volunteers. We are proud of our work to field competitive football teams and to make a meaningful impact on the “whole person” of our student-athletes. We are grateful for the community’s regular support during our annual Wildcat discount card fundraiser and for the businesses that allow our student-athletes to sell in front of their stores. These dollars directly impact the lives of our players. We are all busy preparing for our next game at Mercer Island this Friday. The winner of this game will be the No. 2 seed from the KingCo conference and will be in position to host up to two playoff games. This is an important game! With a 6-1 record, our team objective remains within reach: playing in the Tacoma Dome. Come out and cheer on the Wildcats as they seek to make 2012 the most successful season in school history. Go Wildcats! Charlie Kinnune, Head Coach, Jeff Mitchell, Wildcat Football Booster Club

What I wanted to say about Jerry Recently we lost our friend and town barber, Jerry Main. I didn’t have an opportunity to speak at his open house at the Eagles’ hall. I could barely even get in the back door. You couldn’t get near the front door. Jerry obviously had a lot of friends. If I had spoken at his memorial, I would have said something like this. I really loved Jerry. I never told him that. Not sure he would have liked that. Jerry was a man’s man. A man’s barber. He could talk about any subject you brought up. Often I would go into his shop, hoping he wouldn’t have any other customers in there. I was always glad for Jerry that he was busy, but I very much enjoyed having him to myself. I idly entertained the idea of locking his door so no one could interrupt our conversation. He loved to talk about his family, fishing, hunting, sports, maybe a particularly funny Seinfeld episode, a show Jerry and I were both fans of. He loved to talk about the old days, about his dad, a tough logger, and all of his dad’s logger buddies. I wish I could have met his dad. Jerry was a character. He had an opinion about

“I guess I’m fortunate. I live on a hill, so I don’t have to deal with flooding, and I bought a generator to deal with power outages.” Hadi Korma Snoqualmie

everything. He and I didn’t agree on everything, but that would never have gotten in the way of our friendship. Jerry had a wonderful sense of humor. For some reason Sharon, my wife, likes my hair long. Sometimes after Jerry cut my hair, Sharon would walk past Jerry’s shop and shake her fist at him through his window. Once I went in to have Jerry cut my hair, and Jerry said “I’m not touchin’ it. Your wife got pretty upset at me last time I cut it.” Jerry knew the whole thing was just a joke, but he played it beautifully. I will continue to support whoever takes over Jerry’s shop, but it won’t quite be the same. Jerry became a fixture in downtown Snoqualmie, always there to wave at as I drove by. Sometimes I would simply pop in and tell him something funny. I enjoyed making him laugh. Beneath that thin layer of tough crust lived a very nice man. I miss you a lot, Jerry. Rest in peace.

and generosity will hold us up during this devastating time. You came with food, you came with support, you came to do anything that needed to be done to keep this family rolling. It was you who shopped and cleaned and mowed and took out the garbage. You saw to our every need and we will always remember you for that. You phoned every day to check on us, just to see how we were holding up. You came from far away to be a part of his service. We needed you there and you came. You spent hours turning regular snapshots into a work of wonder. We will view it often and every time, think of you. You came to his service and showed us, his family, how wonderful a man he was by how many who loved and honored him. It was amazing. We praise you and thank you for being so kind and generous.

CAMPUS FROM 1 Incoming freshmen, he said, will have a core curriculum of language arts, math and integrated science, with a newly required Science Technology Engineering and Math, or STEM, component, and will enjoy all the extra-curricular activities that students attending Mount Si have. “Those elements that really connect students with school, that are outside of the classroom learning, will be available for our students,” he said. “We’ve already worked with transportation, we have a plan on how students will be able to access those activities, whether it’s at the freshman campus, or it’s at the main campus.” The same is true for assemblies, he said, and students will benefit from an advisory model in future planning. “What we’re talking about is more than just an advisory model. What we’re talking about is really focusing and steering students toward what are their interests and their passions, and how that plays a part in their upper class-work, as they move into their sophomore, junior and senior years,” Newell said, “…so they have more of a guided understanding of where they want to go, now and in the future.” More detailed information will be provided to the board at the next meeting, said Superintendent Joel Aune, who presented the update with Newell. This evening’s presentation, he said, was “setting it up for the Oct.

18 work session, at which time I think we’ll be prepared to really share with you some of the particulars associated with the freshman campus.” Newell and Aune also described for the board the planning process and input used to plan the freshman campus and its offerings. A core planning committee, including Newell and Aune, formed earlier this year to begin the work of getting the freshman campus up and running. Also on the committee are Assistant Superintendent Don McConkey, Student Services Director Nancy Meeks, Instructional Technology Director Jeff Hogan, Mount Si High School Principal John Belcher, Assistant Principal and CTE Cirector Cindy Wilson, and teacher Kyle Warren. Working with the planning team, Aune said, was a staff advisory team, comprised of about 20 teachers and staff members from Mount Si High School. Their input was critical to the planning group, he said, because “chances are a number of these teachers will actually be teaching at the freshman campus.” A third group, which Aune called a focus group, had been assembled the week prior to the meeting. Aune said the first meeting, of 30 to 40 people, was successful. He did not specify how the group members were selected, however, and several parents in the audience asked to be included in future focus group meetings. • The school board’s work session begins at 5 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 18, at the School District office, 8001 Silva Ave. S.E.

lockdown FROM 1 The caller remembered part of the vehicle’s license plate number, which Batiot used to locate the vehicle in the city. She checked the full plate number, saw that the vehicle was stolen, and signaled for it to stop, she said. Instead, the driver tried to evade her, speeding up and turning onto Tolt Hill Road. “His driving didn’t appear to be very safe...” Batiot said, so she backed off, “and he crashed shortly thereafter.” Backup from Duvall was already en route, and Batiot called for assistance from the King County Sheriff’s Office after she found the crashed car, empty, in the 28500 block of Tolt Hill Road. “The vehicle had kind of spun out into a ditch,” she explained. “I checked it out, and he had fled.” Sheriff’s Deputies and a Redmond Police canine team soon arrived and began searching the heavily forested Tolt Hill area. They also asked dispatchers to phone the community residents, warning them to stay inside during the search. Officers with guns drawn

searched the garages and outbuildings of several homes. Batiot explained the suspect, known to Carnation Police, wasn’t considered dangerous, but “that is a dangerous situation, because you don’t know,” she said. “As a general guideline you would do that on any similar case.” The search continued for much of the afternoon. After several hours, residents were notified by phone that they could go outside again, but the search hadn’t been entirely called off. “The information was out there, and a couple of different agencies were out looking for him,” she said. They found him, around 9 p.m., stuck in a bog and calling for help. Sheriff’s deputies pulled the man out and handed over custody to the Carnation Police, believing him to be the subject of the search. “He was probably in the area for quite some time, trying to evade arrest,” Batiot said. The suspect will be charged not only with possession of a stolen vehicle, but also with possession of stolen items. Inside the vehicle, police found several items linked to robberies in the Seattle area.

Preparing for the storm

Rowe said. “People say it only happens to faraway places. It doesn’t happen to my family.” But the reality is that disasters do happen here. Planning, getting a kit ready, gathering supplies are vital to being ready for the possible. “Plan to let each other know you’re safe and where you’re at,” Rowe said. A warm coat, good set of shoes, a list of medication, are a good starting point. See our full list on pages 12-13 for kit ideas.

Thinking ahead


Williams, who lives in Fall City, went nine days without power in the 2006 storm. “Every day, we had to get gas for the generator,” she recalls. When a disaster happens, it’s often too late to stock up. When Williams went to the supermarket during the 2006 outage, she noticed that essentials like candles were often sold out. “You’re competing with everybody else during these times,” she says. You can save yourself a lot of trouble by planning and shopping early. It’s important to store extra water, food, flashlights and other essentials well ahead of time. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the scale of a disaster, and the need to react. Some thinking ahead of time is well worth it. “Think about what you’re going to need on a camping trip,” Williams advises. “These are the kinds of things you have to fall back on.” “The biggest issue is the attitude that ‘it won’t happen to me,’”

The last few months have seen exceptionally dry weather in the Cascade foothills. But Mother Nature often has tricks in store. Even though this winter is predicted to be mostly mild, Bob Rowe, Snoqualmie Fire Chief, stresses that it’s important to start thinking about preparedness early. It’s the neutral years, he says, that historically have had the really big storms. “There’s always anomalies,” he says. This year saw odd patterns— drought in the Northwest, record numbers of tornadoes in the east. So you can’t take an easy winter for granted, Rowe says. “We can’t stress preparedness enough,” he added. Whether it’s a wet winter or a dry one, there is usually at least one serious weather event every winter in Western Washington, says Josie Williams, spokeswoman for Eastside Fire and Rescue. “Even if it’s not serious, it does put a stop to people’s activities,” she says. “Sometimes it’s just not safe to go out.” The winter of 2012 was a doozie. During the Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend, the Valley endured a three-or-four day blackout, the result of an ice storm that shattered trees, downed power lines and closed major roads for days. It came in the wake of a snowstorm that snarled local routines days earlier. The massive ice storm of January 2012 challenged local authorities in several ways. The city of Snoqualmie worked with the just-opened YMCA to open an emergency shelter, which posed hurdles as there was no generator there at the time. With Snoqualmie Parkway and Highway 202 closed between Snoqualmie and Fall City, neighborhoods became more isolated. Gas stations and stores saw lines form for essentials like gasoline. The January storm wasn’t as bad, though, as the Election Day storm of 2006, which shut down power for some Valley residents for nearly two weeks.

Winter safety for your pets Indoor or outdoor, pets need protection from the elements


s you stock up on winter supplies for yourself and your family, give a thought to any four-legged family members. Dogs, cats, horses and other animals need many of the same things people do in the winter, and a little more attention. Just like people, dogs and cats can be more susceptible to sickness in the winter. Pets should limit their time outdoors, even if they are outdoor animals. A consistently wet coat can keep an animal cold, even if the temperature rises, so all pets should have a warm, dry shelter that’s out of the wind. Whether they’re indoor

or outdoor, when an animal comes inside, gently toweldry, or even blow-dry their coats. Also, check their feet for clumps of ice or snow between their toes, damage to their foot pads, and so on. Watch for frostbite, which appears as reddish, white or gray skin that’s flaking off. A dirty, matted coat provides very little warmth, so keep your pets well groomed. Brush them frequently to remove mats, and only bathe them when necessary. Bathing can remove some of the oils in the coat that help provide insulation, so should be done less often during the winter. Also, never allow a bathed animal outside for more than a few minutes, until its coat is completely dry. Keeping warm in colder weather takes more energy,

Animals need shelter from winter storms, plus food and water. Never allow a bathed animal outside until its coat is dry. so pets may need extra food, especially those that stay outside. Hydration is just as important in the winter months, so make sure fresh drinking water—not snow—is always available. Cold floors can also give animals a chill, so make sure

they have blankets and beds to lie on. If pets are staying in the garage, be sure to store antifreeze and other chemicals out of their reach, and clean up any spills. Antifreeze can kill dogs and cats, even in small amounts. Also, before starting your

Temperatures can be extreme, and if you leave the engine running, carbon monoxide poisoning becomes a risk. Save space in your disasterpreparedness kit for the critters, too. PAWS, the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (www., recommends the following items for each pet in your disaster kit: • Minimum of three days’ worth of food, water and medications for each pet — enough for the same number of days you planned for in your family kit. • Food and water bowls • Can opener • Carriers for each small animal, leashes and col-

lars for each larger dog • Cat litter and litter box • Familiar blankets and towels, for bedding and to calm the animals. • Toys and treats, also to keep pets calm • Written instructions for each animal, in case you need to leave them with someone. A pet first-aid kit is also recommended. You can buy one at a pet supply store, or create your own, with the following: • Conforming bandage • Absorbent gauze pads • Absorbent gauze roll • Cotton tipped applicators • Antiseptic wipes • Emollient cream • Tweezers and scissors • Instant cold pack • Latex disposable gloves • Proper fitting muzzle • First aid book for cats and/or dogs. Keep each pet collared, with identification tags. Also consider microchipping your pets for more permanent identification.

Your house is more than just an investment: It’s your home. So naturally, you’ll want to take good care of it. Take the time to prepare your home prior to the oncoming cold weather. Ready everything for the cold months ahead. • Create and follow a weatherization/risk management plan for your home or property to minimize storm impacts and follow each year at the beginning of storm season. • Conduct annual reviews of your property insurance to understand and address coverage needs. Ask about flood insurance or coverage for sewer/storm drain back-up. • Complete a detailed home inventory of your possessions and keep in a safe place away from your home (like a safe deposit box). You can find a downloadable form at Roof, Attic and Gutters • Check your roof for loose, missing, worn, or damaged shingles and make sure flashing is secure around vents and chimneys to eliminate flying debris and reduce the chance of possible water damage. • Inspect the insulation in your attic and crawl space. Seal areas around recessed lights, the attic hatch, and plumbing vents that may be allowing warm air from the living space below to enter the attic. • Gutters should be clean, properly aligned, and securely attached. Inspect gutters a few times during the fall and winter months, especially if there are many trees around your house. Gutters and downspouts should direct water away from the foundation, as well as away from walkways and driveways, so that they do not become slippery or icy. Outside Walls, Framing and Foundation • Check soffits, siding, brick walls, trim, and flashing for damage, looseness, warping, and decay. • Look for termite damage and signs of other insects or rodents. • Check foundations for signs of settling, such as bulging or shifting. Have a professional inspect cracks more than 1/8-inch wide. • Learn more at

Keep calm and carry on How Carmichael’s True Value Hardware helps you weather the storm (and stay safe and sane) By Wendy Thomas


hose of you who have lived here for a while have seen a few pretty significant floods and power outages. We’ve been through the last 10 years’ worth of them with you at the store. We like to think we’re getting better at the emergency event rodeo (although it would be just fine not having another ride any time soon). We thought we might give you a retailers perspective. Don’t get the wrong idea, we love to help folks, and yes, sales are good. But emergencies are hard on everyone, especially if you’re scrambling. If the power goes out, we close the store temporarily until we can establish emergency operating procedures. Then we round up all the male cord ends and put them behind the counter (back feeding your panel is dangerous and illegal). Next we put up the “Carbon Monoxide and Backfeeding Kills” sign with the skull and cross bones on it. Now we are more or less ready for the onslaught of folks shopping for their unscheduled camping trip.

Levels of preparation vary greatly. Some folks are pretty much set. They have laid in the necessary systems and or supplies, have done some planning, and are in “Keep Calm and Carry On” mode. On the other end of the preparedness scale are those who are in “Now Panic and Freak Out” mode. They have little to nothing for the situation, and haven’t spent much time thinking about it. In a perfect world everyone would have a fully functional backup power source. The reality is that many do not. They are expensive and require diligent maintenance to remain operational. There are many far more economical items that can make your life manageable until power is restored. The key is to have them on hand. You can find great emergency preparedness information on many sites. As prepared retailers, we always try to have a deep supply of emergency event “greatest hits” items. However, they are gone quickly. Reordering is difficult to impossible. Ordering systems may not be functional, and all stores in a region are pulling from the same distribution warehouses. Supplies are gone quickly, transportation is limited, and routes may not be open. If you’ve ever been in search of these items during a weather event or outage, you’ve had lots of company. Yes, there can be certain level of camaraderie, but tempers also flare. In big, lengthy events things sometimes get downright nasty. So do yourself, your family and friends, your community emergency personnel, and yes your local retailers a favor. Be prepared! Wendy’s hot power outage (and just plain don’t like to be cold) tip. A hot water bottle in bed at night (make sure it is in good shape or you’ll be soaked) makes an amazing difference in staying warm and toasty. Try it! • Carmichael’s is at 8150 Falls Ave., Snoqualmie.

Gear up for seasonal needs

Preparedness on a budget

ACE Hardware ready to help when winter strikes Don’t let the long stretch of summer fool you into thinking winter isn’t coming. The abrupt change into fall is here. Staff at North Bend ACE Hardware are ready, awaiting customers’ needs as severe weather approaches. They have prepared a winter preparedness and emergency kit list and are ready to help customers. In case of bad storms or weather-related disasters, homeowners should be thinking ahead about how to stay mobile, warm and safe. “You want to be prepared for the worst,” said ACE Store Manager Chris McCartney, a veteran of 20 Valley winters, including snow storms, floods and prolonged power outages. Storms often mean a run on the store, so smart shoppers will stock up ahead on everything from de-icer to emergency lamps. When gear and supplies are organized and stored in a safe, dry place, homeowners can be ready for Mother Nature. Get together with your family and make a list, ACE staff say. Find a place in the pantry or back of the garage, and safely store needed goods. Water is a must. Some neighborhoods are on electric wells. When the power goes down, so does the water supply. Besides ‘people food,’ ACE staff emphasized putting aside extra pet food to ensure animals don’t go hungry during outages or other disasters that may cause disruption in supply chains. The store’s emergency car kit list includes items that save time and trouble during winter travel. An extra bag of cat litter can also be the ticket (out/home) when your car gets stuck in a snowy ditch. Chemical heating pads and glow sticks can provide light and heat without batteries. Also, make sure to use camp stoves and grills safely. Residents should never use coal- or gas-powered items inside the home, as the carbon monoxide they give off is deadly. ACE also recommends foam faucet covers and heat tape to prevent frozen pipes and water leaks. Don’t forget about pipes from well houses to the home, as well.

Snoqualmie Valley Record • October 17, 2012 • 15

North Bend ACE assistant manager Niel shows part of the selection of winter auto care items. Winterization should also include treatments to gasoline engines in the boat or RV to prevent cold damage.

Outdoor fun Winter brings opportunity for adventure. ACE carries a full selection of sporting goods for families’ camping, hunting and fishing needs. Camping goods can also come in handy during storms and power outages. Old and new products, from emergency thermal blankets and Sterno cans to lamps and hatchets, make roughing it a bit easier. Some customers swear by oil lamps over battery-powered lamps. Oil burns brightly and lasts longer. The store also carries a hand-cranked LED lamp that lasts for up to 12 hours after a firm cranking. ACE makes an extra effort to stay staffed and stock inventory during big winter events. “We make an extra effort to make sure everybody’s here,” McCartney said. “We’ve got committed people. They understand we’ll be here, we’ll keep operations running.” At need, a regional warehouse keeps supplies running. “I tell them what we need, they make it happen,” McCartney said. “ACE is the helpful place. That’s what we’re here for— everybody at the ACE warehouse also understands and supports that whole philosophy.” • North Bend ACE Hardware is located at 330 Main Ave S. Call the store at (425) 888-1242.

You don’t have to break the budget to prepare for the types of natural disasters that can happen in your area. The following are easy ways to get ready for nature’s events in a thrifty manner. Create your own personalized list. You may not need everything included in “ready-made” kits and there may be additional items you need based on your personal situation. For example, if you have pets, you may need special items. Don’t forget to have supplies in your car and at work. Look around your home first for items you can place in your kit using the personalized list you create. You may be surprised how many items you already have around your home that just need to be pulled together. Budget emergency preparedness items as a “normal” expense. Even $20 a month can go a long way to helping you be ready. Buy one preparedness item each time you go to the grocery store. Save by shopping sales. Make use of coupons and shop at stores with camping supplies and used goods. Test your emergency preparedness kit every 6 months. Only replace and cycle through those items that have a shelf life (such as water, food, batteries). You may want to test the radio and flashlight at the same time to make sure they are in working order. Use Daylight Savings dates as your preparedness test reminder dates. Store water in safe containers. You don’t have to buy more expensive bottled water, but make sure any containers you use for water storage are safe and disinfected. Request preparedness items as gifts. We all receive gift we don’t need or use. What if your friends and family members gave you gifts that could save your life? Don’t forget to protect them by sending preparedness gifts their way, too. Think ahead. You are more likely to save money if you can take your time with focused and strategic shopping. It’s when everyone is at the store right before a storm hits that you might buy things in urgency. Use a list to avoid duplicating items when you are stressed or panicked. Trade one night out to fund your family emergency preparedness kit. For example, taking a family of four to the movies can cost upwards of $80-$100. Just one night of sacrifice could fund a family emergency preparedness kit.

Reverse 911 test begins soon The city of Snoqualmie operates its own Reverse 911 community notification system, that is tested citywide each fall. This year testing is scheduled for October 22-25. During one of those evenings, all phone numbers in Snoqualmie that are registered in the city’s Reverse 911 community notification system should receive a call. The recorded voice will identify the call as a test from the city of Snoqualmie Emergency Operations Center. Reverse 911 calls let citizens know when there is an emergency happening. Learn more at

After last year’s multiple-day power-outage, EFR stresses the need to be careful about carbon monoxide. If people are using kerosene heaters or stoves, they need to ensure they are used in a well-ventilated area. EFR is concerned that people who keep extra gasoline may end up inadvertently creating fire dangers.

The same warning goes for families who rely on candles during outages. If you need to leave the room, put out the candle; don’t leave it burning unattended, as that could lead to a fire.

During a disaster It’s important to pay attention to the emergency announcements, evacuation orders and signs that say when roads are

closed. When floods come, firefighters have to put themselves in harm’s way to help people who underestimate the danger. You should never try to drive or walk through flooded areas. There’s a chance that hidden pitfalls await below what looks like shallow waters. Driving past a flood barricade is a poor choice, there’s a chance you may not get back—or that someone else may not get back

because they have to come save you. Rowe stresses the acronym, TADD: Turn Around, Don’t Drown. “We rescue numerous people off the tops of their cars,” Rowe said. “Because they do an illegal maneuver, I have to put my crew in harm’s way.” It’s much better for everyone if you park your car on high ground and wait for floodwaters to recede. The firefighters can’t force anyone to evacuate in a flood, and it’s common for some experienced residents to try to ride them out. But if they experience a medical issue or need rescuing, that also becomes a dangerous situation. Rowe asks residents to raise fuel and chemicals out of harm’s way as well. Both the cities of North Bend and Snoqualmie broadcast travel restrictions on the local emergency radio channel, AM 1650. The Snoqualmie Emergency Operations Center (EOC@ or (425) 888-5911) is open during local emergencies and disasters to provide information to the public as needed or requested.

Trash to treasure


rash and treasures alike were scooped up by Fish Festival participants Saturday, Sept. 22, but only the trash found its way to the bin. Mosaics, wood carvings, copper leaves and other beauties were toted to their new homes, in the hands of their finders, at the conclusion of what will probably be an annual river clean-up in Fall City. “We think it was a very successful day,” said Sharlett Driggs, co-chair of the Fall City Arts-sponsored event. “Lots of smiles and shouts from people who found art treasures.” An estimated 200 people helped with the riverside cleanup, bid in the salmon auction, or just enjoyed some of the booths, like the carvings of the Snoqualmie Tribe Canoe Carvers.

Right, a young treasure hunter scores a fish sculpture during Fall City’s river cleanup and arts event. Below, diver Charles Frederick found his share of trash at the bottom of the river. Frederick had help throughout the day from Damian Moses, left, and Wayne Graika, both part of the Snoqualmie Tribe wood carvers.

TENNIS FROM 4 “Six games went by and the super tie-breaker came up. That was interesting,” the senior said. Reid had lost to his Liberty foe in their prior matchup this season. He felt the intensity of the match—“my hands started sweating”—but he wasn’t tracking the score until the final moments. Reid is among the Wildcat tennis players to make good strides this season. “I never knew anything about him until he walked onto the court,” says coach Jim Gibowski. “He’s maybe the most mentally tough player I have. He’s strong and can move.”

In doubles, the three Mount Si duos lost. Rhett Haney and Van Magnan, in the primary group, fell to Liberty’s Tyler Le and Aaron Burk, 3-6, 2-6. At number two doubles, the duo of Drew Hadaller and Logan Cochrane won their first set, 7-6, over Griffin Lockhart and Matt Campbell. But the Patriots rallied and won the next two, 3-6, 1-6. At number three, Royce Schwartzenberger and Brady Thomas, who challenged their way up from junior varsity, battled to a 6-7 finish in their first set, against the Pats’ Garrett Hughes and Brian Linnenkamp, and fell 1-6 in the second. Mount Si now has a rare opportunity to showcase regional tennis talent, hosting the KingCo league tennis tournament October 16 to 18. Hamann and Griffin will represent Mount Si at singles at KingCo, along with the doubles duos of Van Magnan and Rhett Haney, at number one, and Logan Cochrane and Drew Hadaller at number two. There is a Mount Si team dynamic, Griffin said. “Some people are laid back, others are more intense,” he said. “I think I’m in the middle ground.” “It’s hard to learn at first, but once you do, it’s really fun,” Reid says of the sport. “You can’t have a really bad time out here. It’s a good environment.” You can follow team results at
