Thanksgiving dinner is the start of Valley plans for homeless By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

Vol. 99, No. 26

Mark Toner

Mount Si Lutheran Church will serve as a temporary home for the holiday, for area homeless this week. Volunteers from the church, as well as the North Bend Sheriff ’s Substation, and the Mount Si Food Bank, are combining efforts and resources to put on a free Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless.

The dinner, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., was organized in just a few weeks’ time, and volunteers are excited about helping others this week, even if they have no idea how many others might attend. “It’s possible, the servers may outnumber the guests, but if they do, so what?” said Mark Toner, North Bend’s chief of police services, See Dinner, 5

New middle school boundaries set, frosh campus back up for discussion By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

Another attempt to delay the opening of a freshman campus, a new set of middle school district boundaries, and another look at remodeling Mount Si High School came out of the Nov. 8 Snoqualmie Valley School Board meeting. While the freshman campus and high school discussions will come back to the board Thursday, Nov. 29, the middle school boundaries were approved in a 3-0 vote. Board members Scott Hodgins, Geoff Doy and Marci Busby voted in favor of the staff-recommended Option F, and Carolyn Simpson abstained from voting, citing several “very strong and grave concerns” about the decision and its relationship with the freshman campus. Board President Dan Popp was not at the meeting. Before the vote, Simpson asked to delay the decision until NAC, the architectural firm hired to review the district’s options for remodeling Mount Si, could present its final recommendation to the board, expected Nov. 29. She felt the new boundary decision would be “a step backward” from the voter-supported three middle

school model, and said of the decision to split up the community of student and teachers at SMS, “It’s not just difficult for me, I find it unjustifiable at this time.” Hodgins reminded Simpson that the board had already committed itself to the freshman campus concept, on several occasions, and suggested tabling Simpson’s proposal until the next meeting, when the full board should be present. Simpson’s motion failed for lack of a second, and the board resumed discussion of the boundary change. Doy said he’d heard from “a lot of worried people,” including parents and teachers, about the impact of Option F on Twin Falls Middle School. “They see the successful school their kids go to, suffering.” Option F splits the district along the original Twin Falls boundary line, but includes the “island” of Snoqualmie Ridge. Initial projections put 835 students at Twin Falls next year, 170 more than the 665 projected at Chief Kanim, and well over 100 more students there for the following two years. Director of Instructional Technology Jeff Hogan, however, was confident that more than 20 students in the Twin Falls District, who are currently attending Chief Kanim, would opt to continue at Chief Kanim, evening out the numbers somewhat. Doy noted that he supported Option F on the terms that the district would monitor the enrollment at both schools, and make adjustments as needed, if the student imbalance became too great. Busby was in full support of the staff recommended option, saying “The people that have talked to were in strong support of Option F. I haven’t heard any of the other concerns.” Option G, a proposal reported to have come from the community, was also briefly discussed. That option maintained SMS in its entirety, but relocated it to the campus of one of the other middle schools. Asked to present details about Option G, Hogan presented an example of SMS at CKMS, resulting in 948 students to TFMS’ 552, and costs more than the estimated $1.5 million needed for portable classrooms to accommodate the additional students at both middle schools. The next school board meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 at Snoqualmie City Hall.

North Bend skips allowed increase Although the 2013 property tax levy will increase from the 2012 figure in North Bend, it doesn’t include a planned tax increase. The new levy, adopted by the North Bend City Council Nov. 6, includes $26,435 in new construction costs, plus almost $4,000 for past levy refunds, for a total of $1,296,213. Both Mayor Ken Hearing and Councilman Ross Loudenback commented that the council might want to consider some type of tax increase for the coming year, since the city will be locked in for that rate for the full year, once the council voted on it. Loudenback said the council “realistically, will need to look at other options,” in the future. Councilmen Jonathan Rosen and Dee Williamson were both firm in their commitment to no additional increases. Rosen said the difference that a 1 percent increase would make is roughly $12,000, which he was confident the city could find elsewhere, in an emergency. Also, he said, the city might not pass on a consistent 1 percent tax increase to citizens, but they were already paying “significant water and gas fees.” Williamson said he saw no “absolute need,” for a tax increase, nor did he see a need for the city to complete its downtown plaza project, a $700,000 proposal to redevelop North Bend Way, between Bendigo and and Ballarat, in the coming year. The city received a $350,000 matching grant for the project earlier this year, and launched a citizen design contest to solicit ideas for the pedestrian-friendly space from the community. The council unanimously approved the property tax levy rate at $1,296,213. In comparison, Snoqualmie’s 2013 property tax rate was approved at $5,335,657, not including the $385,000 from recently approved Proposition 1. Carnation’s proposal for 2013, is $161,010.

Answers to the big questions at Snoqualmie Y Center’s first year earns hearty hurrah When the long-envisioned Snoqualmie Community Center began to gel two years ago in the form of a new Y on Snoqualmie Ridge, there were some questions to answer. Some big ones: As both a Y, with paid memberships, and as a free civic center, how would the place serve two functions? And would Valley residents support it? Eleven months after the Y’s grand opening last January, we have some answers, thanks to some eyeopening statistics shared by Director Dave Mayer. With a goal of 1,000 membership units—the Y has varied types of memberships, from families to individuals—in the first year, the Y reached that goal over the past weekend. Those membership units equate to more than 3,000 people—with a strong representation of families with children. That’s exactly what was hoped for. What’s even more revealing is that the Y now serves about 40 percent of the households in the surrounding five square miles. According to Mayer, that’s the second-highest such number for any Y in the nation. Those nearby Seth Truscott residents make up 80 percent of Valley Record local Y memberships. Editor There have been 56,000 member card swipes since January, and 10,800 participants in the KidZone children’s area. This summer, teens put in 600 hours at Camp Terry near Preston, learning how to be counselors. That helps them build their experiences, fleshing out a real-life resume´ for their grown-up years. The Snoqualmie Y was the one Seattle-area branch that gained membership this summer, rather than lost, as is apparently typical during the slow months. On the community center side, communal space is being used by Relay for Life, the Northwest Railway Museum, the Boy Scouts of America, and for talks by local historian Dave Battey. The place is shaping up to be the city’s primary emergency shelter, with an electrical generator in the process of being installed this month and staff getting trained in shelter management in September. Nearly 7,000 teens checked in for a free acitivies this year, 2,800 participants came to wellness classes, and the center has logged 4,116 volunteer hours. Two hundred and fifty seniors took part in activities. Another of the big question marks about a Ridgebased center was how children and seniors from other parts of the Valley would be able to get there. The Y seems to have solved this, working with the Mount Si Senior Center and the school district to make sure existing bus routes connect to the building. To me, these numbers indeed show that the Y is fulfilling its mission as a civic center for Snoqualmie. Of particular note is how the place is connecting with kids. From its inception, this Y was meant to be a safe place for the community at large, but especially for children. Staff go to local middle schools at lunch and organize arts activities and dodgeball games. And children of all ages are welcomed at a variety of afternoon activities and family or teen nights. That’s a great way to keep young people moving in a positive direction. A teen is less likely to spend his nights spray-painting walls with graffiti if, in the afternoons and evenings, he’s got somewhere to go where his company is appreciated and valued. Behind the numbers, this organization is making the connections that matter, with local groups, families, and children. Here’s a hearty hurrah for the Y’s successes in its first year. It’s a hopeful sign for the future.

• A steady, soaking downpour and a strong, unseasonably warm wind changed the Snoqualmie on Monday from a river minding its own business to one that became everybody’s business. The flood crested at 11.65 feet in the Puget Sound Power and Light Co. cavity at Snoqualmie Falls. Damage was light, but the river rose frighteningly fast. • Former Valley Record publisher Charlotte Paul Groshell was named to the state Board of Prison Terms and Paroles by Gov. Albert Rossellini, filling an expired term.


In Brief

And, “If they outnumber us, and if we run low on food, we’ll just start slicing the turkey thinner.” Toner, whose department began organizing the dinner, said he got the idea for it after a citizen sent him a letter with her concerns for the homeless, and asking what she could do to help. “It started small—‘Hey, what we can do at the sheriff ’s office?’” Toner said. Yet, any public meal like the one planned is subject to many restrictions, like requiring licensed food servers to prepare and serve the food, for starters. “That’s when we found out you can’t just cook a dinner and invite a bunch of people over,” Toner sighed. That’s also when they started expanding their plans, and bringing in partners like the church, the Mount Si Senior Center, and the food bank. The food bank is doing a fantastic job, he said, and they aren’t trying to replace them, “but what we’re looking at is, what if you don’t have a place to cook a turkey?” Each of the partners is contributing to the dinner, and some participants are also putting in their own funds, so there will be no cost for the dinner to any partner agency, or to any of the guests. “This is truly a ‘hey, everybody else is getting together, here’s a place for you’ event,” said Toner. He’s gratified to see the interest in other community groups, and hopes to expand on that with a community discussion on establishing a homeless shelter in North Bend. The first meeting was Tuesday, Nov. 6, with nearly 40 people attending. Toner tried to guide the conversation to what the communities could do immediately to help homeless people, while looking at a longer-term solution. He also stressed that he didn’t want to create a problem in the community with a shelter, either by distressing neighbors, or by enabling people to remain homeless in the long term.

Snoqualmie woman cited for late-night firing at racoons A 61-year-old Snoqualmie woman surprised her neighbors Wednesday night, Nov. 14, when she began drunkenly firing a pistol outside her home, and ultimately had to be restrained by police. No one was injured in the incident, which began around 11 p.m. with several neighbors calling 911 to report hearing gunshots. Three Snoqualmie officers, as well as several King County deputies responded and found the woman, a home-owner with little previous contact with police, according to Snoqualmie Police Captain Nick Almquist, standing in her driveway with a handgun. She continued firing the gun after officers arrived, Almquist said, an estimated 10 or 15 more shots, but didn’t seem to have hit anything with the shots. “She said that she was shooting at raccoons,” Almquist said. “She was extremely agitated, her emotions were up and down, and alcohol was involved.”

Snoqualmie Valley Record • November 21, 2012 • 5

The woman did not respond to officers’ telling her to drop the weapon, at first, but after several repetitions, she did put the gun down. However, she would not leave her driveway, Almquist said, creating a problem for the officers. “Whenever there’s that type of incident and the scene is not secure, for example, we don’t know if another person is in the house, if they’re armed… it’s a dangerous scenario,” Almquist said, particularly for those standing outside the door. “We call that the fatal funnel.” Since the woman was squarely in the funnel area and would not go to the officers, they attempted to subdue her first. They fired a Tazer at the woman, but she was so agitated and jumpy that only one of the darts made contact, Almquist said. After that failed, two officers simply ran to the woman and pulled her out of her driveway. “I give a lot of kudos to the tactics of the Snoqualmie officers and obviously King County, to be able to deescalate the situation,” said Almquist. “I was very proud of those guys.” Because the woman was so upset, police planned to transport her to King County Jail, but during the booking, Almquist said she appeared to calm down enough for the Issaquah Jail, instead. She will be charged with

reckless endangerment and unlawful discharge of a firearm.

Two Valley dancers appear in PNB’s Nutcracker

Sunday, nov. 25

It is Nutcracker season at Pacific Northwest Ballet! Created by PNB founding Artistic Director Kent Stowell and world-famous author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, this masterful Nutcracker production is like no other in the world. PNB’s annual Stowell/Sendak Nutcracker features over 200 roles danced by professional dancers and students, including two from North Bend. Sophia Blackmon, a fourth grade student at Opstad Elementary, is an “infantry” dancer, while Clara Soltys, also in fourth grade at Opstad, dances as a “servant.” The Northwest’s favorite family tradition returns to Seattle Center’s Marion Oliver McCaw Hall for 30 performances December 7 through December 29.

Nights of greatness Mount Si football makes history with Kennedy win, earns Tacoma trip to face Bellevue

Winter sports start for ‘Cats


Snoqualmie Valley Record • November 21, 2012 • 11

The clock hadn't finished counting down, but this contest was already over, and the crowd definitely knew it. A moment had arrived. As the packed Wildcat audience chanted "Tacoma Dome, Tacoma Dome," icy Gatorade poured down on Mount Si's defensive coach Wayne Lewis. Minutes later, head coach Charlie Kinnune got the same treatment. Parents flooded the field armed with cameras, ready to commemorate this, the best football team in this school's history. The players themselves were over the moon. This weekend, Mount Si will face a daunting challenge in the form of the Bellevue Wolverines, the only team to beat the Wildcats this season. Yet the moment itself is what matters. For the first time, Mount Si will be represented at the WIAA State football semi-finals. To get there, the Wildcats simply played as consistently and strongly as they've done all season, their defensive hunger and tenacity and offensive skill bringing victory, 38-7, over the Kennedy Catholic Lancers in the quarterfinals on Saturday, Nov. 17. "We're going to the dome," said senior lineman Hank Van Liew, following the big win. "It feels amazing. It's indescribable." "It's a big day for the Valley," said wide receiver and defensive back Hunter Malberg, who hunted for plenty of pass breakups on the night. "We made the adjustments after the first half and shut them down," he said. "We didn't look past this team tonight," said senior Keenan McVein. McVein didn't get quite as many carries as he'd have liked: "They did a good job of stopping our run. That just opened up more passing components for us, and allowed our team to get into our own element. Out for three weeks, senior Blake Herman enjoyed being back on the line. "I just really wanted to get out there and make some plays," he said. Most of this team has played together since fifth grade, said McVein, who huddled for a photo with lineman Tyler Rutherford, a best friend since kindergarten, and both their moms. "Lots of fun, lots of fun," said a beverage-splashed Kinnune amid handshakes from parents. This moment was expected. Kinnune, who has led the Wildcats for 21 years, said his players have worked hard to be here. "There's still work ahead," the coach added. His biggest thrill is to be able to continue practices with his talented team. "I love to work with these kids every day," Kinnune said. In scoring Saturday, Mount Si's Trevor Daniels, a junior wide receiver, had the touchdown of the first quarter with a 26-yard pass from quarterback Nick Mitchell. Mitchell scored next with his own two-yard rush. Mount Si's defense held off Kennedy Catholic for most of the night, but Kennedy got on the board in the second quarter with a 10-yard run by Drew Thompson. Colin Cossette kicked the point after. Mount Si's drives, meantime, kept rolling. Tyler Button earned six points in the end of a second-quarter push with a short eight-yard push on a pass from Mitchell. Cameron Van Winkle followed up with a kick. The first half ended up balanced well in Mount Si's favor, 21-7, and Mount Si only built that lead in the second half, holding Kennedy scoreless. In the third, Griffin McLain scored, on a seven -yard pass from Mitchell. The final Wildcat touchdown of the night came from Jimbo Davis, who tiptoed in after snatching a Mitchell pass. Van Winkle shot another kick through the uprights to bounce off the roof of the concessions stand. The UW-bound senior then capped Mount Si's home play with one of his longer field goals of the season, a 45-yarder. • Mount Si plays Bellevue at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23, at the Tacoma Dome.

Snoqualmie Valley Record • November 21, 2012 • 13

Emergency shelter pilot program approved for Snoqualmie Friends of Youth recently applied to the city of Snoqualmie for a conditional use permit to allow the operation of an emergency shelter and short-term transitional housing facility for young adults. The facility will be in the current Friends of Youth Snoqualmie office location at 7972 Maple Ave. S.E. in downtown Snoqualmie. Friends of Youth was given a grant by the King County Council to fund an emergency shelter for young adults as a pilot program for 90 days. Funding is intended to give the organization an opportunity to provide shelter and assess the need for continued services at this location. The Hearing Examiner approved the conditional use permit after reviewing the application, visiting the site, and conducting a public hearing. This type of housing is allowed as a conditional use under the Snoqualmie Municipal Code. The shelter program opened Oct. 22.

Barbara Koefod of Snoqualmie has been accepted into the Northwest Watercolor Society’s 21st Annual Waterworks 2012 Membership Exhibition, being held through November 28 at the Kaewyn Gallery, 10101 Main Street, Bothell.

Nearly $5,000 in cash and merchandise prizes are awarded.

Sally Vaughan Hill (Busby) left this earth and headed for Heaven on November 7, 2012, she was 57 years old. Sally was born on October 21, 1955 in Snoqualmie, WA to Cecil and Vaughan Busby. Raised on the Old Coal Mine Road in Snoqualmie and attended Mount Si High School. She graduated with honors and went on to get an AA degree with every intention of attending the University of Washington to study medicine. Life got in the way, and Sally married Tom Wyrsch in November 1977. Sally said her greatest accomplishment was her son Lucas who was the pride and joy of her life. One could find Sally outside anytime skiing, hiking, biking, swimming or horseback riding. She loved to dig in the dirt, gardening, making things beautiful. She worked for the school district driving bus while Luke was little then went on to the cities of Snoqualmie, Issaquah and finally retiring with the City of Kirkland Fire and Building Department in 2000 after receiving “Employee of the Year” for the Building and Fire Department. She loved her career and retirement was difficult for her Type A - DNA. There have been several tough moments over the years, but when people would comment on how great she looked considering, she said God knew how vain she was and it was all his doing she just had to keep up her end of the giving and loving and kindness. Sally was strong in faith and trust in God and when her health kept getting worse, she became the family “prayer warrior”. She loved deeply and forever always encountering with her beautiful smile. She loved her son and was so proud of him and her family, reminding Lucas that if he ever learned just one thing in life, it was to love, be kind and compassionate and to follow the dreams of his heart. Sally spent 7 years in Sandpoint, Idaho running from being sick and skiing Schweitzer Mountain where she met Steven Wright, married him, and left for the Cook Islands in the South Pacific. Wishing she could travel more didn’t work out, but love of Lucas and family brought her home to the Valley to live the rest of her life looking at the mountain she loved and loving the people who lived here. She is survived by her son, Luke Wyrsch of Snoqualmie and siblings:Terry Busby, Mary Ann Barth, Patrick Busby, Claudia Busby and Brian Busby. Her brother and best friend Michael passed away in March 2010. Sally leaves behind many nieces and nephews to carry on the Busby tradition. She will be missed by many friends. A celebration of her life will begin at 12pm on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church, 36017 SE Fish Hatchery Road, Fall City,WA 98024. Friends are invited to view photos and sign the family’s on-line guest book at

bells FROM 1

The volunteer Schall stands out from other volunteers at Santa Train. In part, it’s his colorful brakeman’s costume. It’s also his delivery. The former elementary school music teacher speaks in precise, complete sentences. He credits his upbringing: “Both my parents were fluent practitioners of the language.” As ‘Bells,’ Schall has helped with the announcements during Day Out with Thomas visits as well as Santa Train. Bells off, he’s been a volunteer helper with some restoration projects, and once sorted a trash bin’s worth of papers salvaged from the Great Northern Railway, seeking lost historical facts. “In a way, he’s like the perfect volunteer,” said Richard Anderson, Northwest Railway Museum’s executive director. “He loves being here and working with the public. He doesn’t mind working with things, either.” Anderson appreciates Schall’s graceful perspective. “He’s somebody who seems to have enjoyed every part of life, embraced it for what it is.”

Finding work Schall’s calling is education, and he was a jack of all trades in the primary grades. But his specialty is music for grades 1 to 3. He retired from teaching in 1993. “I love ‘em,” he says of the younger set, “their frankness, their openness, their joy. They haven’t discovered, at least to a very sufficient extent, the fact that bad things go on, that there are things to be angry about.” While there are some lucky folks who maintain something of the wonder of childhood their entire lives, for most folks who grow up, “We lose something along the way,” Schall says. Because we do that, we often end up creating more trouble than we need.

“What a great thing it is to deal with the developing generation.” Richard Schall, a.k.a Mr. Bells, Santa Train volunteer As a young man fresh out of high school, Schall worked at a Studebaker car factory in his hometown of South Bend, Ind. He got paid $2.10 an hour—good wages in 1951— as a general laborer and water sander. As sander, it was his job to sand the primer coat on the convertibles. It was tough, heavy work, but the wiry Schall took to it for a while. Eventually, though, he had to follow his dream. For a while, he had been singing on the side as a member of a group called the Philharmonic Singers. “I left because I finally figured, well, I’ve done singing and have enough experience, that I’m going to commit to majoring in it.” A Hoosier, he graduated from Indiana University at Bloomington and took his first musical educator’s job at the Olympic Hills school in Seattle, bringing his family to Washington.

On the train “It was all quite by accident” that Schall’s family discovered Santa Train, 30 years ago. On a day trip from Seattle, he, wife Charlsia, and their young sons packed into the family Volkswagen Beetle and found themselves on Highway 202, about where Snoqualmie Parkway would be, if it had existed then. There was only a forested hillside—and a train. “Here was this U.S. Plywood No. 11 steam engine pushing people around on the track. A big sign said ‘Santa Train.’” Richard plunked down 25 cents per ticket and they boarded, the children excited for their visit to Santa. “They liked it so much,” he said. “And they still do.” Only now, his sons bring their own little ones. Right off the bat, he saw the Santa Train as a good thing. When it comes to family entertainment, “the train remains at the top of the list.”

Over the years, his volunteer experience has reinforced a lesson for Schall. “What a great thing it is to deal with the developing generation,” he says. “I take a special joy in that.”

Mr. Bells Schall became ‘Mr. Bells’ by accident, too, about 10 Christmases ago. As a volunteer, he backed up the train’s main caroler, Anne McCarty, with singing duties that kept riders in the right spirit. “One day I got the idea that if I wore a brakeman’s cap and could stitch bells on the rim, this might amuse the kids,” Schall said. During ‘Jingle Bells,’ he’d shake the cap. A boy on the train, about 10 years old, said, “Oh, you’re Mr. Bells!” Schall recalled. “The name stuck.” Mr. Bells became a oneman onboard show for Santa Train, and after a volunteer rigged up a microphone that connected to the train’s public address system, he negotiated the bouncing vestibules between cars, visiting every compartment. For years, he never missed a train. Lately, performing as Mr Bells has become more demanding physically. But “from the standpoint of feeling, it’s not difficult. I love it,” he says. For the younger set— “anybody 69 or younger, they’re knocking on the door of old age and they’re wondering about it. Schall sees himself as showing an example, of how to stay active, connected and positive. He’s not sure how often he’ll be on Santa Train this holiday season. But he does plan to be there. “I’m so glad I’m able to do that,” says Mr. Bells. As long as they want him, he’ll keep the smiles coming. • Santa Train begins this Saturday, Nov. 24. Learn more at

Yet, at age 84, Schall doesn’t get around like he used to. He has difficulty with physical mobility, doesn’t drive anymore and knows his limits—“Don’t court trouble” is his rule. Schall still wants to be a part of the fun at the Northwest Railway Museum. With Santa Train getting underway this weekend, he probably won’t be riding with his hand-held public address system this time around. But you’ll still find Mr. Bells somewhere in Santa’s proximity at the Snoqualmie Depot, likely serenading guests in the stationary refreshment car, singing and telling stories by the Christmas tree. “That’s how I’m going to do it this year, and hopefully for a few more years,” he says.
