The clock is ticking for Jerry Mader. He’s got an ambitious goal, less than a month left to meet it. And he’s depending on friends and strangers to invest in his latest book, that helps and documents people they’ll probably never meet. Crowd funding is a new thing for this Carnation author, photographer and musician, working on his fourth book, “A Gathering of Stories.” He’s self-published histories of Carnation and local farms, but is now one of several Valley creative types to turn to Jerry mader Internet investors to bankroll a project. He’s using a company called Indiegogo to connect with would-be investors interested in seeing artistic projects come to Jonathan nelson life. As an artist, “you’re always trying to find funding sources,” says Mader, who was tuned into crowd funding through his visual artist wife, Steph, and their artistic friends. With the gradual erosion of funding for various arts agencies, and the explosion of the Internet, it’s getting harder for artists and writers like Mader to break through the static. “The publishing world is crazy,” says Mader, who self-publishes. “You can get it out there. Will anybody pay attention?” See Kickstart, 16

The safe place For people who use North Bend’s homeless shelter, it’s a rare haven By Carol Ladwig Staff Report

Problems brought this group of people together, the guests of the Snoqualmie Valley Winter Shelter. Unemployment, mental or physical illness, disability and addiction all

contributed to one or more of the 30-plus guests’ showing up in the North Bend Community Church’s dining room on this blustery February night. Debbie, a mom with a teen and adult daughters and a volunteer at the Mount Si Food Bank, lost her job when she needed reconstructive surgery to repair the damage to her jaw from a mis-fit pair of dentures.

Tattoo parlors are not allowed in North Bend, except in an employment park zone on the extreme eastern edge of the city. At least, that’s what North Bend planning staff thought until tattoo artist David Herman, currently of Redmond, David herman made plans to move to North Bend. Herman, owner of Ambrosia Tattoo Gallery (, had planned to open his shop April 1 in a building on Ballarat Avenue, squarely in the city’s Downtown Commercial zone, where such businesses are prohibited. However, he also planned to live in the building, making his business home-based, and legal, according to the city’s code. “The main problem here is that the underlying zone did not allow it,” said Gina Estep, North Bend’s economic development director.

Who’s a Snoqualmie? Weekend gathering looked at amending the tribal constitution

Solving the question of who belongs to the Snoqualmie Tribe has become an important issue among many of its members. Working toward that solution, a group of people claiming the required oneeighth blood quantum called a meeting of the tribe’s General Council to discuss the issue, Sunday, March 10, at the Preston Community Center. “Hopefully we can bring unity to our people,” said Milan Gabel, Jr., one of the organizers, who hoped the meeting would lead to new Tribal Council elections and ultimately, an amended constitution. “We do want to be able to amend the constitution, to bring the rest of them that are under an eighth (in),” Gabel said. According to the meeting announcement, the General Council includes all Tribe members who have at least one-eighth Snoqualmie heritage, or blood quantum, which is required to vote or run for office in the tribal government, and to receive per capita distributions. The problem is that, since the Snoqualmie Tribe was formally recognized by the federal government in 1999, Tribe members have been unable to agree on who qualifies as one-eighth Snoqualmie, and who doesn’t. The disagreement has led to delayed council elections, the ouster of some members, and calls for sitting council members to resign. Although the results of the last enrollment audit weren’t formally accepted, some members received notification letters with their own status in the tribe, Gabel said. These letters were used to determine who could participate in Sunday’s meeting. The current Tribal Council was elected in August, by voters identified as one-eighth or more Snoqualmie in a 2004 enrollment report that excluded people who felt they should have been included. “In 2004, a base roll was never properly done,” said Gabel, one of those excluded. “That was never completed.” No one from the Tribal office has responded to requests for comment on the meeting, as of press time.

What the winter shelter has wrought

After amazing first season, what’s next for the homeless shelter?


t’s quite something, what’s been done for the local homeless community, in a single season. Every night this winter, the Snoqualmie Valley Winter shelter opened its doors—first, at North Bend Community Church, then at Mount Si Seth Truscott Lutheran, also in North Bend. Valley Record The guests, all folks with Editor nowhere warm to go, stayed the night, as long as they held to the code of conduct, which includes no alcohol or drug use. About a dozen people came nightly, mostly men, but also a few women, including one mom who found a place to stay for her teenage daughter, but needed her own refuge. This all seems to be coming at the same time. We had a winter shelter open around the same time as a ban on camping in public places in North Bend, combined with the tear-down and clean-up of the shanty camps built in places like the woods next to the North Bend sewage treatment plant. It looks to be a concerted effort to both protect the public, and public resources, from the safety issues the city associates with homeless camps— such as trash, human waste and discarded hypodermic needles. Do the bans and bringing these folks inside really make a difference in changing lives? Right now, at this early stage, the approach seems to be working. Shelter guests have begun to find work, and others have taken initial steps to breaking free from their addictions. At the shelter, a lot of these folks look to be pulling their own weight. Guests do a surprising amount of chores around the place—enough for a church to cut back on pro cleaning costs. With the first season of the winter shelter coming to an end, we’re in for some cooler nights yet this spring, and months to go until the shelter resumes in the fall. How will homeless deal with those, now that camping has been banned and camps razed? Do the shelter volunteers take a hiatus? Do we start from square one next fall? And will the group of volunteers who started all this stay informal, or will this group take on more structure? And is that even necessary? All questions worth asking in the days and months ahead. For now, this group deserves some major, unreserved kudos for their efforts to make this Valley a better place for all residents. Volunteers with the Winter Shelter started this from nothing. In a matter of weeks, they found a site, hired and trained staff, gathered donated materials, started a website, and won over opponents in the community. What a way to put their faith in action! It should revive all our faith in the ability of this community to make a true difference when we need to. You can learn more about the Valley shelter, or to donate, visit

• The new left-turnonly lanes on North Bend Way may have slowed traffic and improved safety, but downtown merchants don’t appreciate it. They say the change has created dangerous driving situations, especially at the North Bend Boulevard intersection and the Shop-Rite entrance. • Carnation’s City Council took a step toward providing permanent funding for the police department, but the final decision will be up to the voters in May. The new plan scraps an annual police levy, in favor of garbage and water tax increases, combined with savings for fire protection from the voter-approved merger with Fire Dist. 35 in November.

In your February 13 issue, you had the story of my company, Wentz Electronics, and our 51 years in business. What a great job Seth Truscott did in telling our story. Our work was not known to the general public since we sold and serviced two-way radios and other special electronics to fire, police, logging companies and other industrial systems. I don’t think many people in Snoqualmie even knew we existed. One huge omission on that story was that my longtime employee Dave DeSelle did not get mentioned. Dave was unable to be here when the pictures were taken, and so I say to you, Dave, old friend and master electronics technician, thank you for your 37 years of loyal service. Ed Wentz Snoqualmie

One year after deadly crash, report indicates pilot intoxication

She presented an emergency ordinance to ban tattoo parlors as home occupations at the March 5 North Bend City Council meeting. Estep told the council that her department had contacted the city’s legal counsel after talking with Herman about his intent, and the attorney indicated the business would be legal as a home occupation in the downtown commercial zone. Since this conflicted with the city’s decision long ago to separate what City Administrator Londi Lindell called “sensitive uses” like tattoo parlors, adult entertainment and checkcashing businesses, Estep and staff began work on the code change. Estep also said staff notified Herman that there might be a problem with his shop within three weeks of their contact with the legal counsel. Herman attended the meeting and lobbied for his business to be permitted, saying he had contacted city staff several times about his plans, had applied for a business license Feb. 11 and had already begun moving into the rental property. “I came here as a good neighbor,” he said, adding that his business would be “…a very professional shop, run by a marketing professional.” He also said he was well-known in the industry and had many “high-profile” clients who would be coming to his shop in North Bend. Two councilmembers, Ross Loudenback and Ryan Kolodejchuk supported the code change, but felt the city should make some allowance for Herman’s business

The pilot who flew a small plane into Mount Si last year, killing himself and two passengers, was intoxicated, according to a Feb. 4 report from the National Transportation Safety Board. Robert Hill, 30, was found to have 154 milligrams per deciLiter of alcohol in his bloodstream, nearly four times the legal limit for civil pilots to fly, when he flew a Cessna 172S into Mount Si, around 2 a.m. Feb. 15, 2012, according to the report. Federal law prohibits anyone from acting as a crew member on a civil flight with 40 mg/dL alcohol in the blood, the report said, although “Adverse clinical symptoms have been noted with blood ethanol levels as low as 20.0 mg/dL.” The toxicology tests, routinely conducted on pilots in fatal accidents, also revealed that the pilot had the anti-inflammatory acetaminophen in his urine and the antihistamine diphenhydramine in his blood and urine. The report also specified the review of the aircraft equipment and concluded “The on-site examination of the airframe and engine revealed no evidence of a mechanical malfunction or failure with the airframe or engine prior to impact.” The crash and subsequent NTSB investigation closed trails on Mount Si for nearly two weeks. Searchers located the plane and recovered the bodies of the victims the day of the crash, but the investigation and debris removal work took a long time to conclude. According to the report, Hill and his passengers, Seth Dawson, 31, and Elizabeth Redling, 29, had gone to a local hockey game earlier in the evening and then out to dinner. Around 1:35 a.m., the three departed the Renton Municipal Airport, where Hill worked part time as a flight instructor. The plane climbed to 2,400 feet as it flew northeast, but descended to 1,500 feet near Snoqualmie Falls. An eyewitness, who was also a private pilot, was driving on I-90 at the time and reported seeing the plane at about 1:50 a.m., flying at 1,000 feet, well below the cloud ceiling. The witness said he lost sight of the plane as the freeway turned south, and when he spotted it again, it was flying northeast, toward Mount Si. When the plane crashed, it was flying southeast, hitting the mountain just north of the Little Si peak. NTSB investigator Wayne Pollack said the plane seemed to fly a steady course into the mountain, based on the debris field which followed a southeasterly course to the fuselage of the plane. Both wings were torn from the plane, which then crash-landed upside down. Nearby residents reported seeing and hearing the low-flying plane shortly after 1:30 a.m., and reported hearing a pop and then silence around 1:55 a.m.

Community breakfast looks at career prep

Town hall meeting for Imagine Housing plan The city of Snoqualmie will host a town hall meeting focusing on the potential Imagine Housing affordable housing project in Snoqualmie. The town hall meeting is 6:30 p.m., Thursday, March 21, at Snoqualmie City Hall, 38624 S.E. River Street in downtown Snoqualmie. Project plans have not been submitted to the city of Snoqualmie for approval, but may be considered at a City Council meeting in the future if a formal proposal is made and additional research is provided. While a quorum of the Snoqualmie City Council may be in attendance at the town hall meeting, no action will be taken. During previous community outreach meetings hosted by Imagine Housing, some Snoqualmie residents had questions related to the project. The purpose of the town hall meeting is for Mayor Matt Larson and city senior staff to address questions that are specific to city planning for affordable housing and related topics. Staff will present answers to questions that have been most frequently asked by the public. Following the presentation, the town hall will be open for a question and answer session.

“In every (contact) with the city, the applicant was given positive reinforcement,” Loudenback said, adding that his personal sense of fairness called for the city to allow the business. Councilman Dee Williamson said he would have agreed with Loudenback and Kolodejchuk if Herman had already received his business license, “but since the license hasn’t been approved, we have recourse.” Several pieces of information, needed to approve Herman’s license, were missing, Lindell said, including the question of whether he met the space requirement. Home-based businesses can take up the lesser of 500 square feet of floor space, or 25 percent of the home’s floor area. The revised ordinance, approved in a 5-2 vote by the council, with Loudenback and Williamson opposed, bans tattoo parlors, body piercing shops, and any businesses or collective gardens involving the exchange of marijuana as home-based businesses within the city. Uses already banned as home occupations by the code, automobile-related services, direct merchandise sales, warehousing or manufacturing with the conversion of raw materials, remain banned. Because it was passed on an emergency basis, the code took effect immediately, which resulted in Herman being unable to obtain a business license. The code will go back to the city’s planning commission for review, and a public hearing, required within 60 days of the vote, is planned for the April 16 City Council meeting.

Mount Si musicians win big

The Mount Si High School jazz bands and vocal programs earned significant honors Feb. 1 to 3, starting with the two-day Viking Jazz Festival. Mount Si Jazz Bands I and II were each in the top three of their divisions after preliminary performances, which qualified them to play in the finals concert the evening of Feb. 1. In the finals, Mount Si Jazz II took first in its division, under the direction of Matt Wenman; Mount Si Jazz I took first in its division, under the direction of Adam Rupert; senior Aaron Tevis won best trumpet soloist; and Jazz I claimed the Sweepstakes award as the best band at the festival.

Most of the big names are back as the Mount Si softball team reloads this spring. Familiar leaders, like seniors Mickey Blad, Lauren Smith and Tamarra Crowe, and experienced younger players like Celine Fowler, Paige Weatherbee, Nikki and Jenny Carroll, Rachael Picchena and Britney Stevens, bring strong potential. Smith, at centerfield the communicator of the team, has been a varsity player all four years of high school. She works hard: “I like to push myself on the field, and academically,” says Smith. She wants to push that hard-working philosophy to the whole Wildcat gang. “I want to see us grow athletically, and as people,” says Smith. “This team’s chemistry just keeps getting better.” Crowe, at shortstop, wants to achieve, wants her own batting skills to grow, and most of all, wants that state title. “I want to make sure everyone knows what they’re doing, help everyone out, and be a leader on the infield.” A newcomer to the team is senior Courtney Wilhelm, experienced from the Woodinville Reign club team. Head coach Larry White, back for his 13th season, found a spot for her, for which Wilhelm is grateful. She plays softball because it’s fun, and different. “Of all the sports I’ve played, softball has the best sense of humor and the best attitude toward the game,” Wilhelm says.

Core of the Wildcats The new team coalescing on the Mount Si baseball team looks to make its mark with solid defense and hitting. Ten seniors make for a well-rounded team that includes Wildcat baseball vets. “We’ve got a good core,” says senior Brian Woolley, who, with Griffin McLain, was part of the unforgettable state championship program in 2011. “I want the same thing as two years ago,” says McLain. “We have the talent to do it.” New head coach Zach Habben can’t rely on the lopsided, two-to-one victories of past teams. “We’ll have the guys who go out and

Joe Done, Griffin McLain, Nick Adams, Connor Swift, Gunnar Buhner, Austin Hall, Connor Jensen, Joey Cotto, Bryan Woolley, Chase Kairis compete,” said Habben. “Defense, we’re going to be solid. As far as pitching, it’s up in the air. We’re going to see who is going to step up and fill those shoes.” While the battery is still being configured, junior Zach Usselman returns for his second varsity year as catcher.

Woolley promises the hits. If there’s another strength, “it’s going to be how close we are as a team,” he says. There’s a lot of club experience, and these players go back a long way together. “Outside of baseball, we’ve been friends for a long time,” Woolley said.

“We’re all close,” added McLain. This big crop of seniors and returners including Joey Cotto, Evan Johnson, Woolley, Connor Jensen, Gunnar Buhner and Joe Done, will leaven a new group including seniors Nick Adams and Chace Kairis. Next up, Mount Si visits Kamiakin and Walla Walla on March 16.

2013 spring sports Preview Mount Si track and field

Getting into high gear Jimbo Davis sits comfortably on the thick mat, watching as pole vaulters race past, attempting to fly and offering tips. Davis is qualified to advise, as he went to state in this event last year. Narrowly missing a spot on the podium, “I’m coming back for revenge,” the senior says. Committed to play football at the University of Nevada next fall, he wants to enjoy this last semester of Mount Si track and field. Fellow senior Danielle Curley, who just missed state with a seventh-place finish at districts last year, is the most experienced vaulter for the girls. “We have a lot of potential for the next couple of years to really see people make it to Kingco, districts and state,” she said. Seniors to watch include state-experienced hurdler Ashley Jackson, who took third in the state 300 hurdles event. Jackson is a mainstay in the pro- sean hyland gram, having gone to state in hurdles three years running. Senior Dom Canady is coming into the season in his best shape ever, and coaching staff say he’ll likely be the lead distance runner. For the girls, Bailey Scott and Abbey Bottemiller return to the distance group, and newcomer Maddy Hutchison could surprise as a fast 800- and 1,600-meter leader. Then there’s Bradly Stevens, who took home gold in the javelin at state in 2012, only to hurt his elbow on the very next throw. He’s recovering and plans to be peaking by the time state comes this year. “We’re making sure it’s strong enough,” said Stevens, who has been putting in 2,000 throws a week. He’s also closing in on his time in the 110 hurdles, which he narrowly missed a state berth in last year.

Their time to shine

This is her time. Last year could have been, but the very focused Mount Si senior Danielle Burns was sidelined for half a season by injury. She lettered, and ended up playing one-handed in the league tournament last season, missing the cut to districts, amazingly, by 17 strokes. Already college committed to Methodist University in North Carolina, she’d love to get another shot at state. “I’m here to play, and I’m here to go as far as I can,” Burns said. She’s part of a likely top three for the Mount Si girls golf team that includes junior Tabitha Dorn and incoming freshman Caitlyn Maralack. Dorn says she comes to this year with a new, patient attitude. She wants to play her best, every week, and seeks a score in the low 80s. Golf is “my way of getting away,” Dorn says. “It’s something of my own.” Besides Burns, seniors include Cecelia Dixon and Paxton Richardson. The team is rounded out by Bianca Backman, Samantha Inman and Megan Ayers. These golfers are into the game, says head coach Brandon Proudfoot. All come in with experience. That makes for a good depth in the mix of the top six and the potential for the best season in years.

Mount Si High School SPORTS The main ingredient Speed will be the reloaded Mount Si boys soccer team’s main weapon in its hunt for greatness this spring. “Everyone that plays attack is lightning quick, and we can use that to our advantage,” says senior Alex Censullo. “We’ve got the leaders that we need, the role players,” says senior keeper Hunter Malberg, who, at practice, stands out as the vocal communicator of the squad. A big group of seniors includes Censullo and Kody Clearman, who were among the top scorers in KingCo as juniors, while current junior Aaron Baumgardner will be a key part of the Wildcat attack. Makhosandile Lancelot, a junior transfer from Shorewood High, is also expected to add some speed to this team. “I’m a quick, small guy, used to getting into tight spaces,” he says. Lancelot started playing at a young age and got more competitive as he got older. “We are here to take home the KingCo championship,” says Censullo, whose personal goals include getting back on the league first-team list. As in many Mount Si sports, roots run deep, and Censullo says this group has known each other for years. This team has been underrated, says Clearman, but they’ve got the potential to do a lot, especially with their attack.

‘We’re definitely going to play’ The Mount Si girls tennis team is practicing on their blue courts. It’s a cool day, chilly, perhaps. “At least we’re outside,” says senior Cheyenne Dixon, after returning volleys in a practice drill. “Last year we were barely outside,” on account of ceaseless rains. By today, a little more than a week into practice, this team has had more time outside than in the bulk of last spring. That means that this squad is already improving on the 2012 season. Dixon, who was part of last year’s doubles squad that represented at the league tournament, was among several returning players to grace the team. Others to watch include Kelcey Sharp, Peyton McCulley and Alaina Kinghorn. “It’s kind of like family now,” says Dixon. “It’s fun and everybody is so nice.” Newcomers are made to feel welcome. Attitude is good, adds fellow senior Kayla Schumacher. “No one is mad if they lose,” she said. “It’s always ‘Good game,’ ‘Good hit.’” It’s early, but “we’re definitely going to play,” said Dixon. “We go with the flow,” says Schumacher. Dixon plays for fun. She’s not a heavy player in the off season, but during the year, “I try to get better and improve.”

cedarcrest high school sports Clayton Lacher, Christian MacMillan

Cedarcrest baseball: Exciting chances They were in eighth grade the last (and first) time Cedarcrest High School’s baseball team won a state championship, but seniors Clayton Lacher and Christian MacMillan still light up when talking about that win. They get even more excited thinking about their own chances at state, just a few weeks into the season. “That would be so cool!” they agree. Lacher, a first- and third-baseman, just

loves baseball, playing all through high school, and most of his life. He also plays football, but, he says, “football is just to get ready for baseball.” MacMillan, recovering from shoulder surgery, has the same long career playing the game, because “My dad played semi-pro ball, so I’m always trying to one-up him!” The team, MacMillan says, “is pretty solid all around.”

2013 cedarcrest spring sports Cedarcrest boys soccer

Cedarcrest soccer: Never stopping Life is all about soccer for Cedarcrest junior and soccer team co-captain Chris Cole. Sure, he’s played basketball, too, but that phase is over for him. “I’m done with basketball, so I can focus on soccer,” says the mid-fielder and forward, who’s played soccer since he was 4 years old, and hopes to play in college. “It was just one of those things. I started playing with the ball and never stopped.” Cole is looking forward to a non-stop season, too, with such goals as staying undefeated at home, and winning first place in the conference, plus, of course, going to the state championship. They’re not really his goals, though. “It’s really more of a team thing with me. I’d like my team to go as far as we can,” he says. With a roster of not quite 20 experienced upperclassmen, they all stand a pretty good chance.

Luke Driscoll

Cedarcrest track: ‘Always set goals’ Track has been an exciting discovery for Luke Driscoll, a Cedarcrest High School senior who just started running last year. His first season began with a 12-second 100-meter dash, and ended with an 11:18 personal record, and a trip to the state track meet. “I’ve never been a runner,” he says, “but I’ve always been fast.” This season promises just as much excitement for the sprinter, who plans to run the 400-meter race by the end of the season, and to shave almost a half-second off his 100-meter time. Aside from being naturally fast, Driscoll thinks his success comes from his determination. “Just always set goals, and try to achieve them,” he explains. “It’s what I did last year.” He also tries to help his fellow runners achieve their goals, however he can. “If a teammate beats me, fine,” he says, “but if another team beats me, that’s not OK!”

kickstart FROM 1 On an adventure People are paying attention to the Kickstarter project of locals Jonathan Nelson and Todd Gamble. In its first 24 hours, the duo’s big role-playing-game project, “Rise of the Drow,” met its $4,000 goal. Today, with about a week to go, it’s sitting at $21,000. Kickstarter is a three-year-old company that connects people with projects, ranging from independent films to music and games. Project creators set a minimum goal, and if the goal isn’t raised, no funds are collected. Kickstarter keeps 5 percent of the total take. The company makes no guarantees that projects will actually be completed. Indiegogo is similar to Kickstarter. Both programs offer perks to donors, rising with the level of donation. Indiegogo offers flexible funding, keeps 4 percent of projects that meet the goal, but offers project creators the option of keeping funds that don’t meet the minimum goal, minus a 9 percent take. In Nelson and Gamble’s creation, elves and dwarves mix with Tsarist Russia, Native Americans and Vikings in the fantasy setting with notes of the Snoqualmie Valley. Nelson and Gamble partnered two years ago to start “Adventure a Week,” making role-playing games, in the same vein as “Dungeons and Dragons,” that they publish online. Their weekly adventures can keep a group of role-players busy for several hours, but their “Rise of the Drow” project was special, very popular, and now, Nelson and company are turning it into a hardcover book. It’ll weigh in at 700 pages or more, and take the average gamer group a year to complete, says Nelson. To make it, Nelson teamed up with some partners across the globe. Gamble, a local artist, did the maps. The Kickstarter response has Nelson, who works a day job with Snoqualmie Valley Transportation, thrilled. He, Gamble and their other partners are working to make the final product the best they can, and will take though March 2014 to meet all the stretch goals their Kickstarter spawned. “This is going to be a massive tome. The final book will be incredible.”

am as an artist... Kickstarter enabled me to reach my core fans in a new way and expand to a broader audience online,” says Miska. “My Kickstarter project included creating one of a kind reproductions on canvas beginning with the Nativity. This was my way of embracing digital technology and marketing with social media.”

Miska’s project

Full circle

Fall City artist Miska Salemann also found success on Kickstarter. She met her goal, raising more than $5,000 for her latest, nearly-life-size Advent painting, “Nativity,” in January, boosting her online presence in the process. Investors got a chance to share in her envisioning process. She also had pledge rewards. A buck netted a holiday card. Four people gave at the $750 level, and got a 36-by-36-inch original painting of the new icon. In an e-mail to the Record, Miska explained why she turned to crowd funding. “I knew that I needed to embrace social media but kept putting it off.” said Miska. She used her website, e-mail and facebook for some time, but noticed artists in her local cooperative, ArtEast, having success on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Pete Ryan, a parent of one of her students, was working on a crowd funding project, and they decided to team up. “I’m really happy with the video that we developed,” Miska said. “It is not in my nature to focus on myself but rather to highlight my art. The video captured the goal of the project and highlighted who I

Mader’s “Gathering of Stories” seeks $35,000 to publish a fine-art photodocumentary book about 28 Northern Cheyenne elders in Eastern Montana. He’s asking for fixed funding on Indiegogo, meaning he won’t collect anything unless the full amount is raised. His relationship with the Northern Cheyenne goes back 40 years. Part of the reason his tally is high is because Mader plans to give each of the 28 elders in the book a $500 advance as part of publishing. “Native peoples, and the Cheyenne in particular, get ripped off constantly,” he says. “People come in, do their stories, and the Cheyenne still don’t get anything.” Why do this book? “We’re rapidly, with globalization, diminishing our cultural diversity,” Mader explains. Growing up in Great Falls, Montana, he’s never forgotten the experience he had in first grade, in the 1950s, meeting Métis children in a newly integrated elementary school, and wondering why his fellow student was at school that winter without a warm coat or boots. “I could not get that in my head,” he said.

“It stuck.” Mader got the chance to come face to face with the Northern Cheyenne in the early 1970s, when, as a photographer in his late 20s, he accompanied an anthropologist neighbor on the 450-mile trek to eastern Montana. He photographed elders of the second generation to live on a reservation, including one old man who had been born before Little Bighorn. “They were impressive people,” Mader said. “I got beautiful photos of elders, but really didn’t get to collect oral histories. Then a lot of stuff happened. I moved to Seattle, pursued a musical career, and finally wrote the book about them.” Ten years ago, Mader published a memoir of his journeys in the reservation, “The Road to Lame Deer,” available as a pledge reward on his Indiegogo campaign. That book helped him reconnect with Dr. Richard Littlebear, who traveled with Mader on his original journey, then followed his own path, winding up as president of the junior college on the reservation. Their conversations spurred Mader’s plans to do a new book on the current group of elders, born in the mid-1930s and 40s. He stayed a month with the Northern Cheyenne, meeting as many elders as possible. His only criteria was that they had to be 65 or older to be in the book. Mader wants to help the Northern Cheyennes preserve their history and culture. “With the Cheyennes, I’ve been connected to them, body and spirit,” says Mader. “I’d love to be able to close this thing off.” He’s raised $570 of his goal, with 30 days left. If Mader fails to meet his goal, “I’m not done. I get to think it over. I can try it again.” The clock is ticking, but the crowd approach also means more people discover Mader’s work every day. “I just got another one today,” Mader said. “My campaign is 2 percent funded today,” he says excitedly.

Obituaries John Banas John Thomas Banas, a key volunteer fire department member in Carnation in the 1980s and ‘90s, died Saturday, Feb. 16, in Puyallup, Wash., from an extended illness. He was 52. Banas was a volunteer with King County Fire District 10 (now Eastside Fire & Rescue) in Carnation, where he served during the late 1980s and well into the 1990s.

Getting started Nelson advises other creative types to do their research and pledge for other people’s Kickstarters before embarking in their own project. “Look at what you’re making,” he said. “Is it unique. Does it fill a niche? Get some real feedback.” Before he started this project, he supported others Kickstarters, with money as well as social networking on Facebook and Twitter. “Check out other Kickstarters and support them,” he said. “I supported 16 before I launched my own.” “You’ve got to support what you love,” Nelson says. Making a video is an important way to connect with people, Miska said. “You can do it with whatever you have available. We shot the video with a regular camera and edited it all on an iPad.” Doing a Kickstarter takes time. “Looking back we probably agonized over some details more than necessary. I think the next one will be much easier now that I know what works for my fans,” Miska says. She encourages others to try it. Besides the free set-up, you get instant feedback, which she used to improve her site over the 30-day kickstarter. “Don’t expect Kickstarter to market for you,” she said. “That said, they have a huge population of active members who are really engaged and looking to connect with creative people. It was also a good kick in the pants to take action.” • Miska hosts an open house, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, March 16, at her studio, 31822 Issaquah-Fall City Rd.

“This is going to be a good one tonight… they’re going to be happy tonight if they eat” Lowe says, adding, with a pause after each word, “Heidi can cook it!” Houser loves to cook, and said she was thrilled to find out about the shelter’s need for dinner volunteers, because it may be her niche. “I just had a dinner party with a bunch of my friends,” she said, and one of them encouraged her to find a niche in cooking. Then she found out about the shelter’s need for volunteer cooks, and signed up immediately. “We just think it was such a great thing, and for such a group in need,” she said. Beckvold says every single dinner volunteer has been enthusiastic about the task, which at first glance may seem daunting: Cooking dinner and breakfast for 40 people in entirely portable and disposable containers. “You’d be amazed,” Beckvold says “They’re just so happy to be giving.” That spirit is also what appealed to Starks, Beckvold’s frequent shelter partner. He was a Seattle resident, well acquainted with the problems of homelessness and the joy of serving others, until moving to North Bend in December with his new wife Valerie, a 20-year North Bend resident. Both volunteered at the shelter before Andre was offered a staff position. “We just got in it to support the community,” said Starks. “It blows me away to see this community, seeing the love you’ve got here.”

Giving choices Tiffany’s boyfriend, Jesse, was extremely skeptical that the shelter would ever come together, or last, so he is also pleasantly surprised. “I’m blown away. I thought they were going to shut it down,” he says, frankly. “People don’t want us here,” he said, something he thought was made clear with North Bend’s new anti-camping ordinance. “They basically don’t want us to exist.” Other shelter guests have shared his view, including Art, who, in early December, wasn’t even sure he would use a shelter, if it opened. For starters, he and Dutch had things pretty well figured out in their particular neighborhood. “I consider myself the godfather,” Art said, only half-joking. At his and Dutch’s camp, he laid down the rules for others who wanted to stay there, including no littering, and no cursing. He’s friendly to the people he meets, and they’re friendly back, he says. He keeps order, and because of that, “a lot of them are happy that we’re out there.” On this night, though, Art is happy to be inside, where it’s warm. Usually, he admits, he stays warm by drinking, but he knows that really won’t help him. “When you have a home to go to, you have no concept of what it’s like for people who don’t have a choice,” he says. The shelter is well on its way to giving local homeless a choice, however. In February, shelter supervisor Steve Miller reported to the North Bed City Council that three shelter guests had recently celebrated getting jobs, and one man was slated to leave the shelter and move into transitional housing. A few others had decided to seek help for their addictions, too. Using drugs, including alcohol, in the shelter is strictly prohibited, and so is the sale of drugs, alcohol and weapons on shelter premises. Since the shelter opened, three people received season-long bans for violating the shelter’s code of conduct, and a few others got shorter-term bans. Like the food bank, the shelter also helps to connect its clients with services that might help them, such as, in the veteran Kevin’s case, bringing in a King County Veterans’ Services representative to help him with his benefits. “Sometimes he helps,” says Kevin. It’s a start, at least, which is all many people really need. Paula Matthysse, a shelter director and media contact for the group, explains it simply. “It’s a place to eat, a place to stay… we’ve got guys that go to work, and it’s helpful to get a good night’s sleep.” Matthysse and the rest of the shelter advisory board, however, have big dreams for the future of the shelter. The group has obtained enough money to operate the shelter through March 30, and easily transitioned the shelter to its new location, Mount Si Lutheran Church on Feb. 15. King County Councilwoman Kathy Lambert, who attended planning meetings for the shelter in November, has offered to donate a retired Metro van to the shelter to help solve transportation problems. However, it’s unlikely the van will be available until the fall of this year. Most of the operating budget for the shelter this year came from private donations, Matthysse said, but she hopes that a larger community will get involved in planning next year’s shelter season. “It’s going to take some brave conversations, and brave conversations from elected officials,” she said, but is not in the least discouraged. “I still have faith in the Snoqualmie Valley.” Faith is where it begins and ends for the Snoqualmie Valley Winter Shelter, and not just because churches can move more quickly to meet the needs of the homeless than a government agency can. Lambert, at the conclusion of one planning meeting, may have summed it up best. “I love the idea of the churches doing this, because to me, that’s the only way we’re going to get people whole again.”

The Snoqualmie Valley Hospital is conducting a survey of community members and their thoughts on the hospital’s reputation, strengths and challenges. The online survey, available at SnoValleyHospitalDistrict, takes about five minutes to complete, hospital staff members say. Survey respondents are asked what they know about services the hospital provides, how the hospital compares to other health care providers in the area and what they think is the importance of the hospital in the community. They are also asked to rank the hospital’s clinics, Emergency Room, and the hospital overall on a scale of 1 to 5.
