It’s a spooky time of year for election signs. The ubiquitous “vote for” placards posted throughout the Valley have been mysteriously disappearing in places, never to be seen again. So what dark forces snatched up most of Marci Busby’s signs from Fall City two weeks ago, or picked off her opponent David Spring’s signs within the hour they were posted in a North Bend neighborhood? We’ll probably never know, because neither Snoqualmie nor North Bend police have received many reports on the disappearances—a typical sign costs under $5, so it’s hard to think of as a theft —and if they did, they wouldn’t have much to investigate. “The police said that, since there was no eyewitness, that nothing could be done,” Spring wrote in an e-mail to the Record, referring to a report he filed, not so much for his missing sign, but to report collateral damage to a nearby street sign.

It’s a time of change for Fall City’s Fire District 27, which is going to the polls this fall for its first maintenance and operations levy. Right, Fall City firefighters and commissioners gather in front of the station’s oldest vehicle, a 23-year-old Pierce Lance engine, slated for replacement under the levy. Pictured are, at rear, firefighters Brett Krache, Joe Springer and Marcus Noble; front, commissioners Eric Hollis and Lilly Hansen.

In a tight economy, the Si View Metropolitan Parks District has twice successfully gone to its voters to preserve its funding. This year is no different, in that Si View has a Prop. 1 on the ballot, but in terms of what Si View returns on that investment, it’s already been a lot different. “Have we expanded? Well, we really just refined what we currently run,” says Executive Director Travis Stombaugh. “We don’t have more offerings, but we serve more people. Each program has gotten bigger and bigger.” The parks district, serving about 40,000 residents in North Bend, unincorporated Snoqualmie, Fall City and the Lower Valley, has had about 112,000 participants in one or more of its programs so far this year.

You don’t just hop in a hovercraft and zoom away. “It takes a lot of training to be able to operate it,” explains firefighter Brett Krache, as he shows me the Fall City Fire District’s big fan-powered rescue craft. In some situations, like floods, it’s too dangerous to ply the Snoqualmie River with an outboard motor. So the department trains at ballfields and the river with the hovercraft. And that takes time.

North Bend publishes homeless problem survey In trying to address the issues surrounding its homeless/transient population, North Bend is turning to its citizens. The city has created an 18-question survey on community concerns and priorities, and encourages residents to complete the survey, either online, or on a paper copy, available at City Hall. The North Bend Council’s Public Safety Committee requested the survey, City Administrator Londi Lindell said, in response to citizens’ concerns about a seemingly growing number of homeless people and problems. “There’s been a pretty big uptick in our calls for service and a lot of them have had to do with the perceived transient population,” Lindell said. People are offering largely anecdotal evidence of what they see as a growing problem, she said, including not feeling safe going out at night, finding drug paraphernalia in their yards and in parks, and concerns for the safety of their children. “These are the complaints I’ve been getting and the council’s been getting,” she said, adding that residents were quite vocal about their concerns at a recent public information meeting on the emergency winter homeless shelter, scheduled to open at North Bend Community Church on Nov. 15. Although the survey is informal, she felt the data could help the council to grasp the problem, and maybe determine if there is an actual increase, or just a perceived one in the homeless population and its problems. “It’s not a statistically accurate survey…. but I think it’s just helpful, information gathering,” Lindell said. The survey asks citizens to prioritize the city’s responsibilities and share general safety concerns. It also specifically asks respondents about exposure to and concerns about such issues as homeless camps, the winter shelter, illegal drug use, and panhandling. It is available online (, or from the city’s website) through Nov. 15. North Bend has been working on homeless issues for many months, and passed a no-camping ordinance in January to ban people from sleeping on public property. Police Chief Mark Toner will host the monthly public safety meeting on the issues of homelessness, 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21 at the Mount Si Senior Center. On Saturday, Nov. 2, organizers of the Snoqualmie Valley Winter Shelter host a public information meeting on the shelter plans for the coming season. The meeting is 11 a.m. at the North Bend Community Church, 146 E. Third St., North Bend.

Fans crowd in for Jenckes’ autograph after his surprise concert Thursday, Oct. 24, in Duvall. Enterprising girls who hadn’t bought a CD to sign just asked the singer to sign their hands, and were delighted when he did. Below, Jenckes performs with his cousin, Robert Perez.

Hometown Hero

Valley’s own ‘Voice’ Austin Jenckes visits his roots, gives surprise concert By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter

Hunched over his guitar and grinning, red-faced, Austin Jenckes kicks out one, sometimes both of his booted feet as he plays. He’s more humble hometown boy than the rock star a capacity crowd has gathered to celebrate, and he’s the first to admit it. “I really appreciate all of you being here tonight,” Jenckes told a crowd of 950-plus at the Riverview School District offices in Duvall Oct. 24 for his surprise concert. “All of this is actually kind of freaking me out!” Jenckes was rewarded with laughs, whoops and applause from the audience, many of them local people who’d watched him grow up in the Valley, or grew up with him. This was their Austin, the one who played Little League in North Bend and football at Cedarcrest, the one who sang at his 2006 graduation ceremony, the one who played music every chance he got. They’ve been sharing him with TV viewers ever since the 25-year-old Valley man was selected to compete in NBC’s “The Voice,” this fall, but tonight he was all theirs. On the show, Jenckes competes with other hand-selected musicians for an opportunity for nationwide fame. He’s also being coached for success, but no one can teach him a thing about how to talk to his hometown crowd. “I’ll say it again, my name is Austin Jenckes, and I come from Duvall Washington, and…” whatever else he was going to say was lost in the roar of approval from the audience when he opened his show Thursday night. His first song was a heart-wrencher, one he said he played when he missed his father. Jenckes’ father committed suicide when Jenckes was only 16. A tiny, sympathetic “aww” rolled through the room, and a few tears followed, but Jenckes brought everyone back up with his tales of fishing at Rattlesnake Lake with his dad, and his message, keep on fishin’. Soon, Jenckes brought out his cousin, Robert Perez, on the drums, and the pair

had the crowd clapping and singing along, and eventually holding up their lit cellphones in homage. The choruses of “We love you Austin!” throughout the show came so fast at times, Jenckes couldn’t even grin and shout “Love you back!” every time. He didn’t even try when a group of men’s voices started echoing the girls’, just laughed with everyone else. By the end of the night, some of the youngest kids in the audience were curled up on the floor in front of the stage, and everyone was unabashedly singing along. To introduce what he thought was his finale, he said simply, “All right, here we go,” and played the opening notes of “Simple Man,” sending a hushed thrill through the crowd. It was the song he played to end his many Duvall SummerStage shows over the years, and the song he played in audition for “The Voice.” It wasn’t, however, his last song. His people weren’t done with him, and called him back for several encores, including his real finale to get everyone moving, “Twist and Shout.” “I am the luckiest person on the planet,” a grateful Jenckes told his grateful crowd. The concert, hosted by the Duvall Cultural Commission, also benefited the St. Vincent De Paul Food Bank in Duvall. Video and photos of the concert will be available on the Duvall Cultural Commission’s website and Facebook page this week.

Voter’s forum helps exercise your rights

Valley Record SNOQUALMIE

On behalf of the membership of the Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley, I want to extend our thanks to those who participated in the candidate forum on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Freshman Campus. Rotary exists to promote the ideal of “service above self.” So, we see great value in an event like this, where voters have the opportunity to talk face to face with those who will represent them in their government. Dick Ryon’s effort in organizing made this event possible, and he was able to do so on very short notice. He did an excellent job. Even in this off-cycle election year, there are still many important races, and I want to thank the 12 candidates and representatives who made themselves available to answer questions from voters. If you were not able to attend our forum, I would encourage you to read the voter’s guide and visit the websites of the candidates for office. And most importantly, please exercise your cherished right to vote. I want to thank Mount Si High School for making its facilities available, My Cakes for providing the food, Starbucks for bringing the coffee, and Living Snoqualmie for its promotional efforts. We look forward to future events like this. Peter D. Bullard President, Snoqualmie Valley Rotary

It is most interesting that a small group of extremists cannot accept that the majority of our country’s citizens do not share their point of view. Our President was elected twice by popular vote. If he was the product of a monarchy, he would have been born a prince, and his father or mother a king or queen. Demonizing him at every turn does not further your cause. This country most certainly is a constitutional republic, but it is also a democracy. Therefore the majority prevails; also a fact taught in civics class. A claim by folks on the political fringe (left or right) that they are the majority is patently false. Just because the majority of people with whom you surround yourself agree with your opinion does not mean that a majority of the electorate agrees. As to the Affordable Care Act being the result of a totalitarian government, that is laughable. It was approved by both the Senate and the House, signed by the President, and upheld by the Supreme Court. Therefore all three branches of government approved it. A review of our constitution will bear this out. It’s the law, whether you agree with it or not. Get over it. The sad thing is that these individuals have not learned that the way to change government is by working within rather than trying to destroy it. It’s time to accept that in life, one does not always get his or her way. A temper tantrum by a small, noisy group leads to a loss of credibility for their cause. Tea Party people, I respect your right to hold your point of view, but you’ve lost this fight. Let’s be adults and move on. A failure to do so will result in your group being relegated to no more than a footnote in this nation’s history, like the Know Nothing Party or the Wobblies. Dan Olah North Bend

City of Snoqualmie race

Munden is a city advocate As a retired math/science teacher from Mount Si High School, I appreciate Heather Munden championing many educational issues during her campaign for the open seat on the Snoqualmie City Council. Snoqualmie is one of the fastest growing cities in the state and has the most children per capita of any King County city or town. Because of this, I feel it is important for the city of Snoqualmie to partner with the Snoqualmie Valley School District in order to take advantage of the dedicated land within the city limits for future schools. This would alleviate the problem of so many Snoqualmie children continually commuting to neighboring communities in order to attend school. I was also happy to see that Heather supported giving Mount Si High School a height increase variation, so the SVSD board has more flexibility to maintain the current location of Snoqualmie schools —especially within the downtown core. Heather is also an advocate of the community and technical college system, where she promotes a branch campus located within the community for professional development, as well as an option for Mount Si High School students to participate locally in the Running Start Program. Additionally, Heather supports the partnership between the Washington Network for Innovative Careers (WaNIC) and the new Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. This vital project provides career-oriented educational programs for high school juniors and seniors, and will allow area high school students to train in the healthcare field. Snoqualmie will benefit from Heather Munden becoming the city’s newest council member, as she is a friend of education. I strongly urge you to check out her website at, and to vote for Heather Munden on Election Day. Geri Spalding Snoqualmie

Not cool with candidate coupon Not that a political ad rubber-banded to my doorknob is ever a welcome sight, but I couldn’t help but find Heather Munden’s latest canvasing a bit tasteless, regardless how sweet it attempted to be. Though I’ve tried my hardest to become immune to Ms. Munden’s ubiquitous ads that pollute our neighborhood, I can’t ignore the inclusion of a coupon good for a free cupcake in her latest flier. I do not know Ms. Munden, nor do I honestly believe anyone in our small town is attempting to buy the public’s vote for a seat on the city council. Nevertheless, I do know bad judgment when I see it. And I’m willing to bet that the barrage of endorsers her yard signs so proudly announce, our honorable mayor included, would never have made such a decision.

Vote for Hauglie, Lambert says It is always a pleasure to work with Kevin Hauglie. He is responsive and cares deeply about his community and the people he serves. He is deeply rooted in this community and serves in roles as a businessman, family man, and responsible commissioner. Whatever Kevin does, he does with dedication and common sense. He goes the extra mile to see that the people of the Valley are well represented. He is willing to work hard and take on tasks big and small that need to be accomplished, and does them well. He listens carefully to people. Kevin’s experience as a commissioner shows that he is always striving to be informed. Kevin served on the medical committee for three years. He is on the finance committee and has been for the past three years. He currently serves on the facilities committee and has since 2004, providing vital administration and building update oversight on the current and new hospital plus all clinics. Kevin is talented, caring and dedicated. For these reasons, I encourage you to vote to re-elect Kevin Hauglie as your hospital commissioner, so he can continue his wonderful service for us. Kathy Lambert Redmond

Norris brings dedication In next week’s election, the citizens of the Snoqualmie Valley have the chance to elect Dariel Norris, a highly qualified longtime local resident to position 2 on the board of commissioners of the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. As a friend, neighbor and colleague of Dariel’s for over 30 years I can attest to her unflagging energy and dedication to serving her community. A qualified nurse working at Harborview, Dariel retired from that profession to raise her eight children and directed her considerable talents into working with the Preston Community Club to fend off inappropriate development and to build the park and soccer fields that are proving to be a regional benefit. After countless hours working on appeals and sitting in meetings Dariel and other Community Club members were able to negotiate better environmental and community protection during the development of the industrial park. She then moved on to become a significant member of the team that put together the Preston Park, working with King County and other stakeholders, all while running her own business. As a hospital commissioner, Dariel will continue to serve her community with integrity and commitment. Seattle

We all know politics in that other Washington (and maybe down the road in Olympia, too) is a bought-and-paid for hornet’s nest of conflicting interests and impropriety. But that doesn’t mean we should stand for the slightest hint of it here in Snoqualmie. I know a lot of people are probably thinking this is no big deal, that a coupon for a free cupcake is harmless, or good branding on her part, but I disagree. Money, bribes, and the culture of quid pro quo is doing this country in at all levels of government. Regardless of her credentials, proposals, and endorsements, I can’t vote for anyone who would think it a good idea to mix free gifts of food in with their political advertisements. It’s a slippery enough slope as it is. Let’s not pave it with frosting.

Hauglie and Jones show what’s best in Valley As a former Hospital employee, I can affirm firsthand the Snoqualmie Valley has greatly benefited from Hospital District Commissioner Kevin Hauglie and President Dick Jones’ brilliant —I would call it courageous—leadership these past six years. They have helped transform the then-struggling hospital into a thriving 21st century healthcare institution, well suited to the personality of the Valley and able to meet its growing needs well into the future. On their watch, the hospital became an early adopter of electronic medical records. Its Critical Access designation, regionally acclaimed swing bed program, rehab department and the upgrade of its urgent care unit to a 24/7 ER are just a few examples of Hauglie and Jones’ vision and stewardship. Most importantly, those in the know have recognized that the hospital district has achieved medical excellence throughout the entire organization. Under Commissioners Jones and Hauglie’s leadership, the

Pursuing excellence in Snoqualmie Valley Schools By Joel Aune

Snoqualmie Valley School District Superintendent

The school year is well underway, and our staff and students have settled into a productive and focused routine of teaching and learning. As a school system, we are striving to provide for our students the best educational experience possible. We are working to build upon past successes to make our schools even better. Our top priorities this year center on a number of major initiatives that will further improve our schools: • The launch of the Mount Si High School Freshman Campus this fall has been a big success, as the feedback from staff, parents, and students has been very positive. JOEL AUNE • Principals and teachers are working to align our curriculum with the Common Core state standards. These standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn. They are designed to be rigorous, relevant to the real world, and reflective of the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. • Our district is also making a strong push into STEM educational programming. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is an integrated hands-on approach to learning which focuses upon real-world problem-solving. Because engineering, math, science and technology-fluency are what many employers and universities are seeking, our students need this type of educational experience if they are to be competitive upon graduating from high school. • Another major initiative is implementation of a new system for teacher and principal evaluation. The new system will focus upon growth, improvement, and accountability. The teachers and principals in our district are doing excellent work in our classrooms and schools. We believe that the new evaluation system will be a source of support for them as they work to deepen their knowledge and further refine their skills. In the coming months, planning related to school facilities will continue as we look toward the future and consider how education will be delivered to students attending our schools in the years to come. In addition to the aforementioned initiatives, our principals, teachers, and support staff will undoubtedly be looking to incorporate other innovative strategies, programs, and changes this year—all in the interest of better supporting the students in our schools. Our dedicated staff believes that the children of our community deserve the best school experience possible. I invite you to support them in this important work. district has accomplished all this while navigating extraordinarily difficult economic times these past several years. Please note: They’re paying down debt. The district operates in the black. The hospital and its clinics provide living wage jobs for hundreds of employees, most of whom I believe actually live in the Valley. All this and more has been accomplished without raising taxes once. Please consider voting for Dick Jones and Kevin Hauglie for Hospital District Board of Commissioners. They exemplify what is best about the Valley and have earned your vote of confidence for another term in office. Scott Scowcroft West Seattle

Hearing supports Hauglie As I speak to my fellow citizens, (I find) a most commonly unknown fact about one of the hospital commissioner races— that a sitting commissioner, Gene Pollard, who has four years remaining on his existing term, is actively campaigning against a fellow commissioner, Kevin Hauglie. King County Elections has never seen this before. It serves no purpose, except to waste everyone’s time. Pollard has four years remaining as a seated commissioner to be involved and able to impose his views. I encourage everyone to consider this and vote for Kevin Hauglie. Ken Hearing North Bend

SIGNS FROM 1 Spring said he’d placed his campaign sign near a county road sign by Twin Falls Middle School, and a driver, apparently intent on removing his sign, knocked them both over. “Someone drove their car right at the street sign—knocking over the street sign,” Spring wrote. “They then took my sign and drove over it several times….” Most of the time, the sign-nappers seem to be content with swiping the goods, even out of private yards, Busby reported. “We never imagined someone would take approximately 100 signs in one night. Signs were also taken from people’s yards on their private property,” she wrote in an e-mail update. A few of the perpetrators, though, are more destructive. Besides tire tracks, Spring has found signs with broken stakes, cut-off stakes, and torn to pieces, in total about 40 of the 190 he has posted.

Heather Munden, who recently took down her signs in Snoqualmie, reported losing 27 of the 83 she had originally posted. She’s also experienced sign tampering, but hesitates to call it vandalism. “One creative individual, who I don’t know and never met, wanted to join in on the fun,” she wrote in an e-mail to the Record. Maybe it was Tim Barnes, maybe someone playing a prank on him, but shortly after Munden had added “endorsed by” cards to her signs, Tim Barnes made an addition, too. “He printed his own endorsement sign and placed it over an existing (one),” Munden wrote, “so drivers on the Parkway would read ‘Endorsed by TIM BARNES 29 Handicap.’” City law in North Bend and Snoqualmie allows signs in public right of way, while county law does not; all signs must be removed by 10 days after the election. Tampering with election signs is a misdemeanor offense.

FIRE LEVY FROM 1 “We can’t put ourselves out of service to go train,” said Krache. “For us to really dive into the training, we need help.” For a real deep-drive into new skills, from attacking a high, burning building to saving a drowning man, volunteers or Fall City’s paid firefighters need time and resources. But economics are putting Fall City’s elective training, community service and the staff itself against the wall. The district is pushing back with its first maintenance and operations levy, on the general election ballot for the 6,000 residents of District 27. Proposition 1 would collect $450,000 a year, over three years, at a rate of about 50 cents per $1,000 in assessed property value. Funds will be used to maintain service levels and retain its 10 paid firefighters. To pass, it needs a 60 percent “yes” vote and turnout of at least 733 people.

Falling revenues

In 2010, the district saw its assessed values decline by a fifth after neighborhoods in the Montaine and Aldarra areas to the east were annexed into Sammamish.

“That first year, we took a $120,000 hit,” said Eric Hollis, commissioner for Fire District 27’s position 2. Between the loss of territory and falling values, the district experienced a 42 percent decline in the value of what it can levy since 2009. It expects a shortfall of $388,000 this year, with similar deficits over the next three years. Call volumes have not changed due to the annexation because of mutual aid agreements, say firefighters. They still run calls in the area, as they’re often the closest unit. But fire tax dollars go to the city of Sammamish. “Almost everyone we talk to supports the levy once they understand the dynamics of our situation,” said firefighter Patrick LeDoux. “We have always had good support from our community and I know that they appreciate the services we provide. We are hopeful that this levy passes, so we can continue the services that they expect.” If things don’t change, the district is on track to lay off three firefighters, cut furlough days and training and put off equipment and vehicle replacement. In July, District 27 commissioners voted to put a measure on the ballot for new revenues. Lilly Hansen, commissioner for position 1, said there was a lot of discussion on what and how much to ask for, but the decision to

go to the polls was unanimous. Her decision was easy, “because it’s desperately needed,” Hansen said. “There will be some drastic changes if it doesn’t pass.” For firefighters, the loss of training equals a loss in safety. When the district scales back education for wildland firefighting, high-angle roof and river rescues, the ability to respond could follow. “If we can’t train on it, we can’t do it,” said firefighter Joe Springer. “It’s just not safe.” To Hollis, this levy is about staffing to the basic level, being able to respond to the “lifesaving events,” such as medical calls or car accidents, that happen about twice every day, “We need to be able to hold the line,” he said. “There’s safety in numbers. If the levy fails, we have to lay off 30 percent of our members,” said Krache. “That layoff is going to decrease the safety of our members as well as citizens.” Fall prevention programs, CPR classes, school visits and other community service activities are on the block, too. Cuts would focus Fall City on the basics: Fire suppression and emergency medical response. “A lot of the things we do around here are elective,” said Krache. The district relies on a successful volunteer program that ensures citizen-responders at nights and on busy summer weekends. But volunteer training isn’t free, either.

“The requirements to be a firefighter and EMT,” or emergency medical technician, “the training, has gone up so much,” Krache tells me. “We bring in volunteers whenever we possibly can. But they have jobs. And it’s hard to get people to come down on their time off.” River rescues don’t happen very often. But when they do, they’re risky. If Fall City’s team isn’t trained to handle them, that means a wait of at least six minutes as they wait for a neighboring squad from Snoqualmie, Carnation or Duvall to arrive. “We all want to be able to help people,” Krache said. “If we don’t have expert training, we’re putting ourselves at risk.”

New truck The levy also pays to replace the station’s 1980 Pierce Lance fire engine, the oldest vehicle at the station. By the latest industry standards, firefighters say, the 23-year-old Lance is outmoded. The engine is still clean and shiny, but it doesn’t stop as fast or have all the capabilities of the other engines parked in Fall City’s bay. “It’s been well taken care of,” said Springer. “We’re just not going to be able to use it anymore.” • You can learn more about Fall City Fire District services at

Royalty for a day Homecoming crowns are an unexpected honor for a dozen Mount Si students By Seth Truscott Editor

Prince and princess on Monday, David Butler and Sami Kieffer were king and queen by Friday, enjoying royal status for a single weekend. The crowns came as a nice surprise for the pair, the 2013 Mount Si homecoming queen and king, who took the recognition at halftime last Friday, Oct. 25, with smiles, then went to the next night’s dance as a royal couple. “I don’t think we expected it,” Keiffer said of the recognition. Mount Si 2013 Students at Mount Si all four years, they know their peers well. But like the rest of the Mount Si homecoming royalty, they never asked for this. There is no campaigning for homecoming king, certainly not Homecoming for Riley Dirks, a senior prince, who considered his royal duties to include mainly picture-taking. Court “It’s good to know people think I’m a good guy,” he said. Freshman Royalty: Rachel Dirks was spirited enough, with fellow senior royals Maile Young and Carly Goodspeed, to wear and Brock Olthouse pajamas to school, in his case a full onesie. Plenty of Mount Si students participated in spirit days, more than last year, said Dirks. Sophomore Royalty: Annie “I never expected this to be how my senior year would go,” said Young. “This was pretty out of the Hiebert and Alden Huschle ordinary.” Junior Royalty: Porter “This is our big night,” said Goodspeed. “We’re kind of outliers, a little bit.” McFaddon and Angelina Belceto Remember those years Senior Royalty : Carly At halftime of the homecoming game, royals drove onto the field in golf carts for a moment Goodspeed and Tanner in the spotlight. Senior princess Angelina Belcito shared her ride with an 8-year-old boy, Walker Simpson McFadden, who was placeholding for his older, football-playing brother. Sami Kieffer and David Butler Walker had his feet up on the dash. He was not quite sure what to make of the older, gown-clad, Kylie McLaughlin and Beau crowned girl next to him, but “he’s warming up to me,” said Belcito. Shain King Butler is in charge of the homecoming activities this year. He was behind the ‘Great Gasby’ themed dance. Maile Young and Riley Dirks “I had seen the movie, we read the book as juniors,” he said. “It had the whole party vibe.” Kirstie Clark and Bailey Takacs Butler’s favorite teacher is Miss Roberts, and his top classes are math, physics and chemistry. “My key thing is study, first,” said Butler. “Definitely into the academic side.” Keiffer’s favorite class is anatomy, which leads into her ambition to be a nurse. She is on the Mount Si tennis team, and is the Associated Student Body’s chairwoman of community relations. King and queen shared their secrets of high school success. “Work hard, but you’ve got to have fun, too,” said Butler. “It’s a balance of both things.” “Remember those years, because those are the best,” adds Keiffer.

The pumpkin people Snoqualmie residents Jerri and Julie Johnson grow giants with love story and Photos by Seth Truscott

To Jerri Johnson, growing a pumpkin is a spiritual affair. He takes the same from-the-heart approach to all of the growing things in the garden that he and wife Julie tend every year. Maybe that’s why his pumpkins are so big. Both Johnsons work as house painters at their business, Falls Painting. At home, though, they’re both avid gardeners. Jerri started all of this with a carrot plant, then, as his green thumb matured, turned to corn, then a three-foot-wide garden patch. When Julie decided, several years ago, that she wanted a fish pond on their patch of ground, downhill from Snoqualmie Casino, he decided he got to have something new, too. So they planted a pumpkin patch. Jerri’s biggest pumpkin has a 40-foot vine that feeds a single, enormous fruit. See PUMPKINS, 27

Big, wet trouble What to expect when floods threaten the Snoqualmie Valley By Seth Truscott Editor

Years of enduring flooding, and rebuilding, are etched in Snoqualmie’s downtown neighborhood. Residents who’ve been here more than a few years can point to the lines on the wall that mark high water. Locals anticipate the areas that flood first. And the city firefighters have the warning system down to a science. “We know floods,” says Snoqualmie Fire Chief Bob Rowe. “That’s one thing Snoqualmie is known for.” So when the river monitoring stations uphill say that the river is rising enough for flooding, firefighters go into action. The city sends out reverse-911 calls, messaging residents in areas that will get wet. Later, firefighters will go door to door, asking people to flee. If they don’t go, they can get trapped. In Snoqualmie, typically the worst-hit Valley city, it starts with Pickering Court, downtown. Then, neighborhoods by the river, at Meadowbrook, and near Kimball Creek start to flood. A big one can swamp most of the downtown area. Emergency officials’ major concern, every time, is safety. So when the word to evacuate comes, Rowe asks that locals take heed. Many lowland residents have already raised their homes. “That’ll protect the house,” said Rowe. “If they decide to stay in their house, they might be dry, and no problems. But what if they have a medical emergency? Or the power goes out and they start getting cold? I have to put my rescuers in harm’s way,” sending the city’s swiftwater team through cold, treacherous hazards to save someone who should have heeded the warning. The winter of 2013-14 is expected to be another neutral year in the El Niño/La Niña weather cycle. Neutral years can sometimes bring major weather events and floods. In the Valley, the 2006 neutral winter brought a windstorm that knocked out power in the Valley for a week or more, followed by the second worst flood on record. The 1990 flood, considered the worst ever, was also a neutral year. “We can get a good snowpack and have a ‘Pineapple Express,’” a burst of warm weather that melts all that snow, said Rowe. “That’s what caused the severe flooding in 1990.” Snoqualmie isn’t the only Valley city that floods. Low-lying areas of North Bend can and do get inundated. In the 2009 flood, inches of water covered the grounds of the Mount Si Senior Center, downtown. Medium floods can wash over the lowland golf courses at Fall City, and a big one can cover Highway 202 between Snoqualmie Falls and the Fall City roundabout. Residential flooding is rare in the vicinity of Carnation. But when a major flood hits, it can isolate the city. The roads that cross the Valley, including Highway 203 south and north

Snoqualmie emergency responders give locals notice and urge residents to evacuate when necessary. of the city, go under. But the town itself rarely floods. Putting the Valley back together, responders usually start by restoring power. “The communities usually try to get schools back in session as quickly as possible,” said Rowe. That brings a sense of normalcy. “Then, (we) get the business back up and running so people can get their supplies and then clean up.” Rowe is hosting a meeting with partner agencies, including EFR, the Snoqualmie Valley School District, Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and local public works staff, on October 30 The idea is to put a community-wide plan in place, and establish contacts. “We may be isolated,” Rowe said. “We need to work together to make sure our communities’ needs are being met. One particular concern this year is how residents outside the cities can get around safely in snowstorms, due to cuts by the county roads division.

Medical Reserve Corps team members Duvall FD45 firefighter Jackson Beard III, Dr. Hans Dankers and nurse Deb Schilens confer about a simulated patient, injured during an earthquake, as part of an exercise held by the Carnation-Duvall Citizen Corps in Tolt MacDonald Park near Carnation.

The rain and wind didn’t stop disaster preparations in Tolt-MacDonald Park in Carnation. During the morning of Sept. 28, the radio call came in—“Injuries at the park”—setting in motion the Carnation-Duvall Citizen Corps response exercise. The exercise integrated Community Emergency Response Teams, Carnation-Duvall Medical Reserve Corps, and Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club, with King County Duvall Fire District 45, Eastside Fire & Rescue, Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and Valley General Hospital. Evaluators from the King County Office of Emergency Management said, “Good job.” Yes, there were some procedures with rough edges, but they will be smoother next time. Exercises help identify needed improvements. Carnation-Duvall Community Emergency Response Team—CERT, volunteers exercised their skills in light search and rescue, triage, disaster medical response and disaster psychology in as close to the real thing as could be simulated. Volunteers were moulaged—made up to look like they had suffered injuries. Eastside Fire & Rescue helped CERT practice cribbing, a technique of building a fulcrum and then lifting and stabilizing a heavy object, to free a trapped person. Carnation-Duvall Medical Reserve Corps— CDMRC volunteers accepted patients, performed a second triage, and provided treatment in a simulated Field Treatment Center. There are five Citizen Corps Field Treatment Centers in the community. Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club— SnoVARC volunteers coordinated radio communi-

Emergency prep in four weekly steps By Patricia Hase and Seth Truscott Valley Record Staff

Pondering how to prepare for a disaster can often be overwhelming. So, a good way to tackle emergency preparedness is to break down the various steps into weekly assignments that families can easy tackle over a month or so. Here are easy ways to get your family ready for a disaster, in four steps, based on information from FEMA and the American Red Cross.

Week one assignment: Establish ICE contacts in cell phone ICE means “in case of emergency.” Most cell phones have a feature that allows for ICE numbers to show up without the lock code. Go to “emergency call,” and an icon will show up that lead to your ICE contacts. We recommend two ICE contacts. The first one would be in-state for anything that is not a disaster situation (i.e., a medical emergency) and an out-of-state contact for disasters or when communications are down in-state. In most cases, you can still make calls out of state. The out-of-state contact should be someone who knows all your family members, and where your family members can call to get updates on your situation; this means you can update all your family members with one phone call.

Week two assignment: Emergency routes Know three different routes that lead from work to home. Each emergency route needs to be labeled A, B or C, with maps in your car and at home. If there is an emergency and you need to leave your car, just leave a message that states you are taking route A, B or C for responders, and when notifying your out-of-state contact you just give the label. Your family will know what route you’re taking, since you planed ahead.

Week three assignment: Role play We live at a time when we no longer prepare for the big one, but the triple threat. The best way to know what to do is to make an activity that is fun and allows for discussion. What do you and your family do if you’re at work, the kids are at school and mom is at home, if there is a snow storm, no power and the river is flooding? Do the kids walk home? Do you and your neighbors have an assigned person to pick up all the kids from elementary, and another neighbor to pick up from the high school? Make this a block party, and have games. Emergencies are easier on kids and adults when they know what do and have already practiced.


BIG WET TROUBLE FROM 12 “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,’” Rowe said. “People say it only happens in faraway places. It doesn’t happen to

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. Both the cities of North Bend and Snoqualmie broadcast travel restrictions on the local emergency radio channel, AM 1650. • You can find education and preparedness information and classes at http:// Cit y D e p ar t m e nt s / Fire / EducationPreparedness.aspx.

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, a good set of shoes and a list of medication is a good starting point. After 2012’s multiple-day poweroutage, 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 well-ventilated areas.

Cold and flu season arrives Tips to stay healthy this winter from Snoqualmie doc There are two things we can count on in the winter – cold weather and stuffy or runny noses. Winter is prime time for spreading diseases since more people are staying indoors and spreading germs to others. The common cold and influenza are prevalent in the winter months. Fortunately, there are things you can do to avoid getting sick. How can you tell if you have a cold or the flu? Both the common cold and the flu are caused by viruses that

What can you do to prevent a cold and the flu? Using good health habits can help prevent the cold and flu. It’s important to wash your hands frequently and cover your cough and sneezes. The best way to prevent the flu is to be vaccinated each year. If you suspect you have the flu, stay home when you’re sick to prevent spreading it to others. Flu vaccines are provided at Snoqualmie Ridge Medical Clinic at 35020 SE Kinsey St., Snoqualmie. No appointment is needed.

Flood essentials Understand risks, plan ahead to avoid a devastating flood loss With forecasters predicting a hard winter, homeowners should consider flood insurance coverage in the event of a disaster. But insurance alone isn’t enough. Proper planning is also vital to avoid major headaches, extra eaxpense or tragic losses during flood. Agents with Valley-based Hauglie Insurance advise residents to make a flood plan, which includes making sure family members know how to get out of the house and neighborhood, where to meet up and how to contact each other. Flood planning also includes readying the home for a disaster. A good exit plan will ensure that contents are protected and valuables removed or stored out of harm’s way. Vital medications, for example, needs to be accounted for early on. If medicine needs to stay refrigerated, have a cooler handy, because floods often mean power loss. Antiques are covered, but only at functional value. That means that your grandmother’s antique table may winds up being replaced by just another new table. Homeowners should ensure that valued antiques are safely high and dry or on the truck out of a flood zone in a disaster. Homeowners also need to ensure that invoices, receipts and flood claim documentation are kept in a waterproof bag and, if possible, in a fireproof safe. Documentation is needed to prove to FEMA that repairs were completed. Time-stamped photos are also a good way to document before-andafter realities. “Photos are the least expensive and most valuable thing you can do in protecting your home and contents before a fire or flood,” says Farmer’s Insurance agent Angela Donaldson. After a disaster, “not only are you emotionally stressed, but now you have to remember where everything was and what it looked like—and you have to articulate that an adjustor.” All that stress can be saved by having photos on hand.

Flood insurance has a 30 day waiting period, and Valley storms and floods have been known to hit before Thanksgiving. While the annual premium must be paid up front, agencies typically offers several payment options, including a credit card choice, to fit buyers’ budgets. Homeowners should also have their residence properly surveyed, as they need to know their elevation for proper flood coverage. Separate outbuildings need separate flood coverage.

INSURANCE FROM 16 Prepare for flooding: What you can do now

• Keep all flood claim-related receipts in a waterproof bag and away from risky areas • Take photos of your home and business as it is now • Look into alternative storage options, such as raising or moving important items • Develop an evacuation plan with your family, employees and for your pets

• Have a list of important phone numbers and sandbag locations • Teach everyone how and when to shut off gas, electricity and water lines • Keep household chemicals above flood levels to avoid contamination • Review your flood insurance declaration page.

you can begin clean-up immediately. •Separate undamaged from damaged items • Keep an inventory of all damaged items, age and value, regardless of whether they are covered • Keep samples of carpets and flooring removed from each room • Keep estimates from contractors to show your adjustor, and provide receipts from prior claims • Keep receipts for everything • Sign the proof of loss within 60 days of the date of loss. Supplemental claims can address discrepancies.

Prepare your car to conquer the cold Make sure your vehicle is ready for colder temperatures. The following are tips to ensure safe, trouble-free travel in the winter months: Replace your everyday tires with winter tires – If you can see your breath, it’s time to switch. Even though there isn’t snow on the ground yet, temperatures lower than 45 degrees cause your everyday tires to stiffen and lose traction, but the latest generations of winter tires remain flexible in freezing temperatures, improving traction and available grip. Don’t forget the filters – oil, fuel, transmission and air filters are important to keep your engine running well. Check your owner’s manual to see how often they should be changed. Check your tire pressure monthly – for every 10 degrees the temperature drops, your tires can lose about 1 pound per square inch (PSI) of pressure. Monitor your tire pressure more closely during the winter time.

Snoqualmie Indian Tribe hires new general manager


The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe on Friday, Oct. 18, announced Jerry Lamb as the Tribe’s new General Manager. Lamb was hired in October 2012 as the economic development director and was later appointed as the interim tribal administrator in 2013. He is an enrolled member of the Gros Ventre Tribe in Montana and has earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration from the University of Montana. Lamb’s extensive experience in Indian country includes various leadership positions in tribal government and tribal business entities. In addition, he also held a staff position under former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer, working on policy and economic development projects with tribes in Montana and serving as an advisor on Native American issues. “It has been a privilege to serve as the interim tribal administrator over the course of the last five months and very much an honor to be selected as the new general manager. I look forward to continuing to work with the Snoqualmie Tribal Council, the administration staff, and the tribal membership as we continue to improve tribal businesses and membership services,” Lamb said in a statement. Chairwoman Carolyn Lubenau said, “Jerry’s experience, background and heritage make him uniquely qualified to take on the position of general manager of the tribe. The Tribal Council looks forward to working with Jerry in his new capacity as we continue to move our tribe toward a brighter future.” The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe is a federally recognized tribe in the Puget Sound region. Known as the People of the Moon, Snoqualmie Tribal members were signatories of the Treaty of Point Elliott with the Washington territory in 1855.

Mount Si football’s linemen reap the rewards of a team approach By Seth Truscott Editor

On the field, Deven Lalgee and Jon Proctor are a pair of predators. The quarterback is their prey, and their hunt lasts only a few seconds when two opposing sets of linebackers collide. If the opposing quarterback sees Proctor coming and reacts, chances are that Lalgee is waiting behind him. Or vice versa. Other times, the Wildcat line and tackles flush the prey toward the two defensive linemen, and “We reap the rewards,” said Lalgee.

Proctor and Lalgee’s in the second quarter, and efforts last Friday, Oct. 25, senior running back Jordan against the Mercer Island Chapman and junior backup offense put them two away QB/defensive back Jonathon from the team record for a “JoJo” Hillel both scored in the night and one away apiece second half. from the individual record Mount Si’s line is growing for sacks.

Mitchell threw for two, one to “Cohesively, we’re coming together. It helps to be on senior running back Bailey Takacs, another to senior the same page. Even if someone is wrong, we can be wide receiver Trevor Daniels. Takacs added another right as a team.”

Former pro Howard Mudd helps teach Mount Si offense This year, Mount Si’s offensive line benefits from decades of professional football experience in the person of Howard Mudd. A retired NFL player and longtime coach, Mudd has been working alongside the team since July. After “you’ve done something for a long time, know a lot about it, there’s a need to give back,” Mudd said. “That’s what I’m doing. I give them some of my knowledge.” Mudd, 71, built a home in North Bend six years ago to be near his son, Darren, and family, who live in Snoqualmie. “I was looking for a place where I could look at mountains,” said Mudd. His football resumé goes back 50 years. He attended Midland High School, where he went to state with the football team, earning all-state honors. After a stint at Michigan State, he wound up playing football at Hillsdale College in Michigan, where he was inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame. After college, he played for the San Francisco 49ers for seven years, then the Chicago Bears for six years, earning a spot in the Pro Bowl three times with Chicago. After a knee injury, he retired from play and began coaching at the University of California, then soon moved to the National Football League, coaching for the San Diego Chargers, the 49ers, the Seattle Seahawks, the Cleveland Browns, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Indianapolis Colts, and most recently, the Philadelphia Eagles.

Football is football, at any level This connection began when head coach Charlie Kinnune bumped into Mudd at an Issaquah butcher shop, then a year later at the North Bend Starbucks, both times urging the ex-49er and longtime NFL coach to start a relationship with the Wildcats. “He’s been a mentor for us,” said Mount Si offensive line coach Jerry Maher. Mudd, he said, teaches players about football and life. “You coach football because you have to,” said Maher. Love for the game, he said, means you’re driven to give your all. “That’s one of the greatest things I’ve learned from him.”

Mount Si linemen have been getting extra advice this season from Howard Mudd, center, a longtime pro football coach and player. From left are, back row, Beau Daniels, Bradly Christensen, Cameron Davis, Jack Nordby, LaFonte Beverly, Ryan Findley, front row, Ryan Bolen, David Bluher, Jacob Blazevich. “It’s great working with Howard,” said lineman Jack Nordby. “His brain is an encyclopedia of football knowledge. Every day is enlightening.” Working with Maher, fellow offense coach Jeremy Cromer and the boys, Mudd talked about schematics and fundamentals. “They wanted to learn as much as they could. The kids responded great,” he said. “I just got a tremendous amount out of it. For Mudd, it’s not about the age or size of the player, but the task at hand and the skill to be learned. “The guy that’s playing, he gets better, because he needs to block somebody who might be better than he is,” he says. “That’s what coaching is about. “Whether you play on Sunday or Friday night, football is football,” he says.

Wings of gold for North Bend alum Garrett Morck The North Bend family of Lt. JG Garrett Morck, a 2007 Mount Si High School graduate, joined him in a ceremony in September at Norfolk, Va., where he received his wings. His parents, Richard and Vicki, surprised him with a gift of 14-carat gold wings, pinning them on his uniform. Morck attended college and took part in the Reserve Officer Training Corps at the University of Colorado at Boulder, then attended flight school for two years. He graduated in 2011 with a degree in psychology and was commissioned at the same time as an ensign. He then was accepted into flight school, spending a year in Pensacola and the second year in Norfolk. Last November he went through two weeks of S.ER.E. training in northern Maine which put him through intensive training in resistance to interrogation and survival skills, required of all officers who may face capture if shot down behind enemy lines. This past year, he has been training in simulators and in the air on the E-2, as a member of training squadron Greyhawks at Norfolk Naval Air Station. He has been assigned to his next squadron, the Sun Kings, at Point Magu, Calif., naval air station for the next three years, beginning this winter, and will see his first deployment on the carrier U.S.S. Carl Vinson next summer.

He deadheads randomly—mowing the lawn around the vines will do the job—and hand-pollinates, of a sort. Jerri takes the male flowers containing pollen, picks them, refrigerates them overnight, then places them next to female pumpkin flowers for bees to find. Their Snoqualmie patch has been a neighborhood attraction on Southeast 88th Street. “We like pumpkins because they bring so much happiness,” says Julie. Families in the neighborhood walk by, “watching as it grows and grows.” This year, for the first time, they hosted a home garden seminar and visitors in

October, opening their patch to U-pickers. Also to be found were pinto and scarlet runner beans growing in profusion, and Jerri’s 10-foot-tall ‘Mammoth’ sunflowers. Jerri and Julie try to keep their bees and plants safe from chemicals and pesticides. “I can only compost what I grow,” he says. He doesn’t spray chemicals, because he doesn’t want to kill his bees, who live in a hive by the house. The big secret to growth is the soil, says Jerri—or rather, the manure provided by the couple’s two goats. Tragically, their favorite white goat, Simon, was taken by a bear two weeks ago, shocking Jerri and Julie. They’re now concerned for their neighborhood, and gave away their remaining goat, Alvin. Jerri will rebuild the fences, and is thinking mini-donkeys next.
