North Bend’s City Hall received two bomb threats on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. The threats, addressed to the North Bend Police, were delivered by mail to City Hall, which used to house the police department. “Basically, we got a letter saying there was possibly a bomb,” said North Bend Police Chief Sgt. Mark Toner. “The letter was addressed to us, the police, so we searched the substation and the City Hall.” Toner called for bomb-sniffing dogs from the King County Sheriff’s Office, to aid in the search.
School board moving ahead on bond, constituents still asking for answers By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter
Whether or not the Snoqualmie Valley School District is officially done “vetting” a $216 million bond option, one phase in its bond campaign is about to begin. Assistant Superintendent Don McConkey, in describing a series of public meetings on the bond proposal, told the board at its Nov. 7 meeting, “This is the beginning of the campaign.” Only two board members, Scott Hodgins and Carolyn S i m p s o n , Tavish attended this McLean, part of the School board meeting, and member-elect neither argued with McConkey’s statement, or his follow-up emphasis on the need for a consistent message in this phase of the process. To several audience members, newly elected District 1 board member Tavish MacLean included, that news was confusing. See BOND, 6

Time is short, but bonds go deep when Gene Grantham trains dogs for the blind By Carol Ladwig Staff Reporter
Gene Grantham knew the plan all along. He was going to bring home a 3-month-old puppy, house-break it, train it, love it, and more than a year later, hand the leash over to a Guide Dogs for the Blind trainer and eventually, the pup’s new owner. See GUIDE DOG, 3

The Nov. 5 general election so far favors the challengers, with an exception—the Snoqualmie Valley School District board race between Marci Busby and David Spring. However, early returns saw challengers in the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital district play upsetter to incumbents, while newcomer Heather Munden was beating former councilmember Terry Sorenson by a wide margin. Meanwhile, both local tax measures gathered strong support. See ELECTION, 5

GUIDE DOG FROM 1
It would be fun to have a puppy, he figured, and a lot easier now that he was retired. It would also be rewarding to help out someone who needed a guide dog. But it was not supposed to be so hard. A sound that’s part sigh, part groan and part laugh is the North Bend man’s answer to how he felt on September 14, to be reunited with his former puppy, Ethan, watch him graduate as a guide dog and then meet his new owner. “Ethan is the only one I’ve had to give up,” Grantham said. The first “puppy” he volunteered to raise is 2-year-old Vinnie, curled up on the couch next to him, and the third, 3-month-old Zeni, is gently snoring on his lap. Vinnie didn’t make it through guide dog training so Grantham adopted him, and Zeni is about a year away from being “recalled” for the specialized training.
Staff changes in North Bend
The right temperament Zeni, a coal-black Lab with soulful eyes, was still a little wobbly on her feet when Grantham brought her home just days earlier, too small to go many places, and too young for anything but the basics — house-breaking. “No, they don’t know that, when we get them,” Grantham said, “but she’s getting the idea,” he said, as Zeni stretched and yawned, then snuggled further under his arm. She’ll also learn a handful of commands, he says. “They’ll learn sit down, come, stay, and let’s go … walking on a loose leash, that’s important, but being well socialized, that’s probably about half of it.” Soon, she’ll be joining Grantham on frequent trips to the library, coffee shops, restaurants, and stores for that socialization, and to help Guide Dogs evaluate her natural abilities. “They have to have the right temperament,” Grantham explained, so puppy raisers like himself pay attention to each dog’s behavior, and report their progress at periodic evaluations. A dog that gets too excited around people and jumps up, or gets scared, would not be helpful to a disabled person, and so is not a good candidate for training. Grantham is extremely impressed with the 70-year-old Guide Dogs for the Blind breeding program, which produces dogs with the calm and confident personalities needed for service, and connects them with volunteers who want to help cement the dog-human bond, either as puppy cuddlers, soon after they’re born, or as puppy raisers like himself.
Select group Fewer than half of all dogs in the program, though, are selected for the training, he said, at the rate of about half of all labs, a third of all retrievers, and three or four times more females than males. Vinnie, the friendly yellow Lab who’s been acting sulky since Zeni came out of her training crate, wasn’t quite confident enough as a puppy and wasn’t selected for the training. Ethan almost didn’t make it to training, either, but for different reasons. “Ethan was a gorgeous dog!” Grantham said, “He zoomed through (early) training like a rock star! He was doing so well, they said, ‘We want him in our breeding program.’” If it weren’t for a slight heart defect that the breeding veterinarians noticed when he came to the program, that’s where Ethan would be today. Instead, he’s in Florida, helping attorney William Osbourne (Grantham and everybody else calls him Ozzie) navigate daily life. It was so difficult for Grantham to Gene Grantham, say good-bye to Ethan — when the dog saw him again after five months North Bend guide dog host away in training, he broke all his training and jumped up onto Grantham’s lap — that he took some time off from the puppy raising business. If he’d decided not to try it again, he would have been a fairly typical volunteer, and member of his Issaquah-based Eager Eye puppy club. “The majority of the people end up with one of them as a pet,” he said, and “some people won’t do it, because they think it will be too hard,” either to train a new puppy, or to give the puppy up a year later. But Grantham had been through all that, and knew he could do it. A few months ago, he wanted to know something else. “I wonder if I could raise another dog as good as Ethan?” he thought. He signed up to find out, this time asking for his first female puppy to raise. As Zeni slid into deeper sleep, Vinnie scooted closer to his owner on the couch, apparently deciding it was time to stake his claim. The doggie tension in the house this time is new, Grantham says, since Vinnie and Ethan got along from the start. Ethan wasn’t perfect, though, he admits. Laughing, he listed some of the things the puppy destroyed when his teeth came in; no shoes, but a couple of belts, a watch, and “I had a library book I was reading, on dog training, and he took a few pages out of that!” Learn more about Guide Dogs for the Blind and its puppy raising programs at guidedogs.com.

Recent staff changes at the city of North Bend reflect the city’s position, ready to grow, and needing some help with that. New hire Dawn Masko takes over as the city’s finance director and assistant city administrator, and Megan O’Neal recently joined the city’s Community and Economic Development Office as a new associate planner. While Masko is filling an existing role, recently vacated by Stan Lewis, O’Neal is a long-awaited addition to the city’s planning department, says office director Gina Estep. In her tenure, Estep points out that the city has increased its boundaries by about 30 percent, come out of moratorium, and started to see a lot of residential development. Her department, which includes two senior planners and an office/permit coordinator, was “maxed out,” she said. O’Neal holds a master’s degree in city and regional planning from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington State University. She was hired for a two-year contract, which may become permanent depending on the city’s continued growth. The North Bend City Council authorized and budgeted for hiring up to three new staffers with development funds — permit fees and other “revenue that we’ve seen because of development,” explained Mayor Ken Hearing. O’Neal is the first such new hire. North Bend also recently lost its building official, Russ Steinike, and the city is contracting for those services in the interim.
Metro warns of bus cuts without help
Carol Ladwig/Staff Photos
The consequences of inaction on stable funding for public transit were spelled out last week, as King County Metro Transit detailed drastic cuts to bus service that must be planned now in the absence of funds from the state. “The time for action is now, with the Legislature in special session, to avert cuts to bus service that would be without precedent in the 40-year history of Metro,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine last week. “It is unconscionable that King County should be compelled to cut bus service, due to lack of funding authority from the state.” Temporary funding dedicated for Metro Transit expires next year, and Metro has exhausted its reserves and implemented many efficiencies and cost-savings. Metro’s service guidelines identify the need for increasing service by 15 percent – but without funding in place after next year, Metro recently released a proposal that lists the details of up to 17 percent in cuts to bus service. The state legislature may consider statewide transportation funding in December, but until a solution is finalized, Metro Transit must take steps to prepare to cancel 74 routes and reduce service on another 107 routes starting next year. Riders with questions or comments can visit Metro’s service cuts page, at http:// metro.kingcounty.gov/am/future/participate.html, for more information.

Real consquences of drowsy driving
even years ago, I sped across the Interstate 90 bridge to Harborview Medical Center. As I did, I begged for God to take my life: “Please take me instead. Not her!” Just 15 minutes before my drive across the bridge, my wife, Mary Beth, and I had received the phone call that every parent dreads. Our 17-year old-daughter, Mora, was in the E.R. at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. All we knew then was that she had been in a terrible car accident, and that her condition was critical. Like any parent, I bargained and begged aloud for God to spare the life of my child. Since that day, we’ve told the story about Mora’s accident and how it was caused by a drowsy driver, over and over again. And we will continue to do so until people take drowsy driving more seriously. That frantic trip across I-90 was just one of the moments from that harrowing time that is seared into my psyche. There are other memories of terrible moments like that, they stay with me and continue to push my family and I to carry on in our mission to talk about the dangers of drowsy driving: • The sadness in the doctor’s eyes three days after the accident, as she took my wife and I over to a private corner after the morning consult was over. She told us that the trauma team was very disheartened. After being in a coma for three days, Mora’s brain was not showing any signs of response, and they were losing William Shaw hope of her survival. Valley Record Publisher • The devastation in my wife’s eyes as we approached our family in the Trauma ICU waiting room. When we told them it looked like Mora would not make it, our family closed around us in an elemental circle of love and shared anguish. Defiantly, my mother said, “Well, we’ll just have to pray even harder!” • The disbelief and anger we felt when we were told by the Washington State Patrol trooper that the driver of the car that Mora was a passenger in had been awake for more than 20 hours before she got behind the wheel. That she fell asleep and went off the road while driving at nearly 70 miles an hour over Blewett Pass. • I will also never forget Mora’s first words over a month later...whispered in pain and agony, trapped in a full body cast and an injured brain. “I hate this”. Or six months later, when Mora was an 18-year-old woman, and she took her first baby step without a wheelchair, crutches, or a scooter, knowing that she would need multiple surgeries on her ankle for years to come. We cannot give Mora back the years that were taken away from her, or the pain that she continues to deal with. But we can try to spare others from suffering terrible, lifechanging injuries like hers. Half of our mission is to promote drowsy driving awareness and prevention through education. In print, online, and on television, we have warned about the dangers of drowsy driving. We have shouted about it from the rooftops, and in our state legislature’s House Judiciary Committee. But prevention and education goes only halfway. For, as with drunk driving 40 years ago and wearing seatbelts 20 years ago, perceptions about and laws and penalties against drowsy driving need to be changed. If a person gets behind the wheel of a car, has not slept for 20 to 24 hours, and causes an injury or death, there should be serious consequences to his or her actions, and added teeth to the current reckless driving laws. Mora has miraculously defied all the medical odds, and is living her amazing life. But others have not been so ‘lucky’. If one person getting behind the wheel of a car thought first and took a nap, Mora’s life and many other lives like hers would have been different. Other lives would have been saved. Seven years later, as our Governor proclaims Nov. 11 to 17 to be Washington State Drowsy Driving Prevention Week, the Shaw family will continue to make noise about drowsy driving and its consequences. And we will never forget.

ThReaT FROM 1 No threat was found, but the case is under investigation. “This bomb threat was not unusual,” he said, adding that the sheriff ’s department investigates bomb threats frequently. “It’s something we are aware of.” He could offer little information on the letters or the sender, since the case is under investigation. However, both envelopes had markings distinct enough that the city employee who got the mail on Friday recognized it as from the same sender, and immediately called the police.
ELECTION FROM 1 Parks, fire levy Si View Metro Parks’ Prop. 1, a oneyear maintenance and operations levy, was passing by a wide margin, 78 percent, 3,046 votes to 834. “We are again thankful and flattered from the Prop. 1 results,” stated Si View Executive Director Travis Stombaugh. “I believe the support is a combination of things.... I believe the residents of Si View Metropolitan Park District value the services we provide and recognize that we help to elevate the quality of life in the Valley.” Fall City Fire District 27’s Prop. 1, an M&O levy, was passing with 75 percent, 1,164 to 378 votes.
School races In the Snoqualmie Valley School District, the race between incumbent Marci Busby and challenger David Spring saw Busby with a 300-vote lead. Busby had nearly 52 percent of the vote, or 3,799 to Spring’s 47.7 percent, or 3,488 votes, for the District 4 seat. “I want to thank the thousands of voters who have voted for a new direction for our school district,” commented Spring, who was carefully watching early returns. “I am very encouraged by your support. I greatly appreciated the opportunity to go door to door and talk with parents about the experiences of their children in our public schools. Win or lose, your voices have been heard and we will do everything we can to address your concerns.” Tavish MacLean is unopposed for the District 1 seat, and garnered 5,494 votes. Write-in candidates garnered 41 votes.

“Being a rookie candidate, I was gratified with the 99 percent share of the vote,” commented MacLean, “but disappointed that there were many voters who didn’t fill out the oval. “I’d like to thank my supporters and let them know that I look forward to working with the board and the administration to make our school district even better,” he added. “It’s important that we keep that perspective and recognize our successes, even as we get down to the business of addressing our challenges. I will be learning, questioning and sometimes challenging the status quo as a new board member, and my door is always open to community members with constructive input.”
City races In Snoqualmie, Mayor Matt Larson was elected to his third term with 74.7 percent of the vote, or 1,584 votes. Challenger Ed Pizzuto received 532 votes. In the contested race for Council Position 5, newcomer Heather Munden was leading former councilman Terry Soreson, 70 percent to 29 percent. Munden had 1,469 votes to Sorenson’s 609 votes. Sorenson congratulated his opponent. Looking ahead, he said he would like to be on the city’s planning commission. “Heather is a hard-working woman,” Sorenson said. “I hope she will represent all citizens.” Bob Jeans, at Position 1, Bryan Holloway at Position 3, and Kathi Prewitt at Position 7 were re-elected, unopposed. In North Bend, Alan Gothelf, for Position 2, Ross Loudenback at Position 4 and Jeanne Petterson at Position 6 were re-elected, unopposed. In Carnation, Jim Berger at Position 2
and Kim Lisk, Position 4, were unopposed.
Hospital District In the Public Hospital District 4 (Snoqualmie Valley Hospital) Position 2 race, challenger Dariel Norris was leading by a large margin, with 66 percent to incumbent Dick Jones’ 33 percent. As of Tuesday morning, Norris had 4,325 votes to Jones’ 2,157. In the Position 4 race, challenger and commissioner Gene Pollard was winning against incumbent Kevin Hauglie. Pollard had 53 percent of the vote, 3,713 votes, to Hauglie’s 45 percent, or 3,152 votes. That race saw 17 write-in votes. Commenting to the Valley Record Wednesday, Hauglie remarked that, with under a quarter of registered voters counted, “it is early and I remain optimistic. The hospital is full, clinics are very busy and the entire team remains diligent carrying out our mission of quality health care.”
Initiative measures I-522, which would have labeled genetically engineered food, was failing with a 52 percent “no” vote. About 837,000 Washington residents voted against it, with more than 772,000 voting for the measure. I-517, which would have set penalties for interfering with signature-gatherers, require that all measures receiving sufficient signatures appear on the ballot, and extend time for gathering petition signatures, was failing with a 62 percent “no” vote, with about 965,000 people voting against the measure, 585,000 voting for it. • The next count in the general election is Wednesday afternoon.

BOND FROM 1 “As we talked about these community meetings, Don made the point, ‘Hey, this is the beginning of the campaign.’ So in my mind, that means vetting is over. Now we’re going,” MacLean told the board. “And what I don’t think we’ve done is answer the hard questions.” The proposed Option A bond, selected in August by the school board after a series of focus group meetings during the summer, would build a sixth elementary school to open in 2015, and complete a phased remodel of Mount Si High School that would add enough capacity to bring the freshmen back onto the main campus and reopen the Freshman Campus building as a middle school by 2018. Following discussions in October, the bond would also include funds for several other facilities projects in the district, at a cost of $2.24 per thousand, for a total school assessment (previous levies and bonds included) of up to $6.60 per thousand.
New board member’s questions Although the board has been talking about various bond and high-school remodel options for the past year, the district just this year opened its freshman campus, following a $2.5 remodel of the Snoqualmie Middle School building it’s in. Also, enrollment projections presented last month, combined with new state requirements and funding for reduced class sizes, could mean a huge increase in the district’s capacity needs at every grade level. MacLean said he still had many questions, such as: • Why not build another middle school and keep the freshman campus? • Why not build a separate high school? • How does this plan compare to the other (district)s in terms of cost? • What is the state providing? • How do we know this is all we’ll need? • How are we gauging the likelihood of the passage? “These are all the questions that need to be addressed,” he said, and although he was confident they would be in the public meetings, tentatively scheduled to start the week of Nov. 20, he said, “I don’t have the sense right now that we’ve come up with those answers and have truly vetted this option.” Kim Hagen, also at the meeting, had still more questions, and a caution for the board. “I just want to make sure that
the board is transparent with everything that you’re doing, because I do think that we have revisited several issues from the past. If you’re asking a $216 million question…. Make sure that you’re in tune with the Valley voters. I’m not sure that you are. “What I see from those (enrollment projection) numbers is we need an elementary school first, and then we can look at the high school situation,” she added. “The questions that need to be answered are: Is this an eight-year remodel, that needs to happen now? Is our principal, who we love now, on board with this remodel? Will you need to come back to us in the middle of this remodel — if going from 2,100 to 2,400 (students) … and ask me for more money in the middle of that? Will Mount Si be at capacity at 2,100?” Hodgins told Hagen, “I think Option A will answer all your questions.” To MacLean, he offered a more detailed explanation. “We may want to set Mount Si aside and not fix it,” he said. “We might want to never do it, but we’re going to have to do it, and right now is the best time to do it. We have a quarter of the population off that campus. Right now is the only time that we’re ever going to do something to that facility, because it’s going to fill up again, or a flood could hit it again. Who knows what’s going to happen to that facility… if we wait eight years to do something to Mount Si, the cost of it will double.”
What’s ahead According to the district’s timeline for vetting Option A, the board will soon reach a decision point, having to answer the questions they set themselves: Is Option A a viable possibility for voter consideration? and Is the proposed bond the right bond for SVSD? The Record asked all board members in a Friday e-mail message whether they’ve answered these questions, and if they felt the bond had been fully vetted. Hodgins’ response emphasized his position that improving the high school now should be the district’s top priority. Regarding the district’s readiness to proceed with a bond, he wrote, “I believe that the district has never spent enough time ‘vetting’ a bond proposal before it’s actually placed on the ballot. This time is no different... I have come to the conclusion that as the president of the school board, I must lead.” The school board meets next at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, at Snoqualmie City Hall.
Letters About Literature contest is under way An annual national contest that encourages students to put their thoughts about a book into words is underway this fall. Now in its ninth year in Washington, the Letters About Literature competition encourages young readers to write letters to their favorite authors, living or dead. The contest, co-sponsored by the Washington State Library, is for schoolchildren in grades 4 to 12 and those who are homeschooled. State Librarian Rand Simmons says Letters About Literature is an annual highlight for him and the State Library staff. “It’s amazing how books can touch young readers and help them see their world in a new way,” Simmons said. “This contest helps students think about books they read and how they influence them. We’ve received many outstanding and thoughtful letters from students since the contest started, and we encourage even more students to take part this year.” Students enter the contest by writing a personal letter to an author, explaining how his or her work shaped the students’ perspective on the world or themselves. Students can write about works of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. They cannot write about music lyrics. Entries in Spanish will be accepted and translated for the Washington State judges. Letter writers compete at three levels: Level 1 for grades 4-6; Level 2 for grades 7-8; and Level 3 for grades 9-12. Entrants must be at least 9 years old. One letter from each level from each state is entered into the national competition. There are two deadlines for this year’s contest: All Level 3 entries must be postmarked by Dec. 10. All entries for Levels 1 and 2 must be postmarked by Jan. 10. The state’s winners will be announced in March. A ceremony to honor the Washington champions, runners-up and honorable mentions will be held at the State Capitol in Olympia next spring. About 3,400 Washington students went through the judging process in the last competition. Nearly 100 schools, as well as Boys & Girls Clubs from around the state, had entries.

O u t g o i n g Cascade Office Supply owner Stephanie Huber stands behind new owner and entrepreneur Donna Hayes, who brings an artistic focus to the 14-year-old office business in downtown North Bend. Hayes has renamed it Mount Si Art Supply, Office and Printing Services.
New face, same drive Stephanie Huber says farewell to North Bend office supply store, new owner Donna Hayes brings new drive, art focus By Seth Truscott Editor
After 40 years in the Valley and 14 years in business, Cascade Office Supply owner Stephanie Huber has sold her business and is saying goodbye. She turns the keys over to a local who proved herself behind the counter and has big plans for the office and art supply store. North Bend resident Donna Hayes took over on September 19, buying the inventory and taking on the lease. She is changing the name of the store to Mount Si Art Supply, Office and

Printing Services. Hayes is an artist; her vivid paintings—today, they include scenes of cyclists and portraits of Marilyn Monroe and a cat named Mr. Hobbs—hang in the front of the store. She’s focusing the place on arts, while keeping vital office supplies in stock. “There are so many artists in this town, and no art supply store,” Hayes said. In back, she’ll sell office and printing supplies, while in front, she’s creating a gallery with gourmet coffee, wine and WiFi: “I want to just bring people in.” Her vision includes an art studio with guest artists in the front window, doing their thing. Hayes started painting up front in October, and her public presence entices customers inside.
Huber’s next direction Huber is moving to Cle Elum, “changing life up a little bit,” and focusing on something new. She’ll continue her remote, full-time work at Preston-based SanMar apparel, and is becoming a mobile notary. For two years, Huber has had a busy schedule, splitting running the shop with her other full-time job. “I’ve always had somebody during the day,” said Huber, whose son, Jake, helped run the shop while she worked for SanMar. Huber decided to sell after working with Hayes, who was her employee, and watching her lead. Working double duty, “I’ve never been able to change everything” at the store, said Huber. “I haven’t had time.” Enter Hayes, who took charge. “On my birthday, she had everything organized. She was cleaning it up, taking ownership,” and getting the shelves spruced and ship-shape. “That was important to me. That was a sign,” Huber said. “It’s perfect,” she said of the change. “Timing is right. It’s what needed to happen.” After 14 years in North Bend, saying goodbye “was a little hard, that first week, after I signed papers,” Huber said. “This is almost bittersweet.” Yet, Huber says she’s leaving the business in good hands. Hayes, she said, brings the same drive that she did, the same attention that kept Huber constantly seeking to meet customers’ changing needs. “Her work ethic is the same,” she said, and Hayes has already rolled out a lot of big ideas. “I’m just hoping the community will support her,” said Huber, “as much as they did me.” She survived a number of ups and downs in the business, every recession, “but you always come out on top if you want to,” she said. “Do what she wants to do with this business,” Huber advises her successor. “Make it what she wants. Follow her dreams. Also, take into consideration our community, what they’re asking for, and incorporate it, if you can.” • Mount Si Art Supply, Office and Printing Services is located at 131 E North Bend Way, North Bend. Call the store at (425) 8888815. The business held a farewell reception for Stephanie Huber on Nov. 9. Hayes plans a grand opening in the near future.

Valley’s Family History Group workshop still growing
Mount Si ASB begins Foodball goods drive
His first buck
Snoqualmie’s Patrick Linder publishes mystery novel, ‘Ghost Music’ Patrick Linder, a resident of Snoqualmie, published a novel, “Ghost Music,” this October. Linder’s novel was awarded third place for unpublished fiction at this summer’s Public Safety Writers Association conference. According to his publishing house, Oak Tree Press, Linder is pushing the mystery genre in a more literary direction. He uses the connection between the Pacific Northwest and the World War II internment of Japanese Americans as the backbone for a presentday mystery. As the novel advances, Seattle detective Marcus Brace must confront not just a killer but also his family’s complicated history as he considers how sins of the past echo, like ghost music, in the present. Linder was born in Wichita, Kan., and moved to the Seattle area in 1997. Awarded a Mellon Fellowship for Humanistic Study, he earned his doctorate in American Literature (with honors) from the University of Washington in 2005. He now works as a communication manager for RootMetrics in Bellevue. Visit Linder’s website at www. patricklinderbooks.com
Jack Allen, 11, of North Bend, harvested his first buck this year. Attending fifth grade at North Bend Elementary, Jack is an avid outdoorsman who loves to fish and hunt. He passed hunter’s safety classes last year. With the goal of a buck in mind, he practiced with a 0.243 rifle, spending hours in the field, cold and hungry. Dedication, preparation and patience paid off on Sunday, Oct. 27, when he shot a fine two-point blacktail deer from 113 yards near Carnation. Dad Scott says that Jack couldn’t be prouder of his accomplishment.
Last month, interested members from the community gathered at the YMCA on Snoqualmie Ridge to learn from family history workshop instructors Erin Christensen and Annette Willis. The two hosts shared ways to record family research findings on paper and digitally from files extracted on the Internet, how to avoid duplicating information and how to move forward with optimum research efficiency. While Willis handed out information and forms to everyone, Christensen shared ideas on how they could enhance the upcoming holidays with Christmas and holiday gifts that people could use with their own family trees. Since these workshops began in July, the attendees have become a close knit group, and are beginning to think of these workshops as a “Family History Club,” where they can actually gather to have fun, while discovering their family roots. The next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the Snoqualmie Community Center/ YMCA. Learn how to talk with relatives during the upcoming holiday seasons, and what questions to ask to pick up family facts, stories and pictures.

Thank you, veterans Generations gather at Snoqualmie elementary school to reflect on service, sacrifice Story and Photos by Seth Truscott
It wasn’t until late in his long life that Alvin Macko told his family what he went through in World War II. Alvin, who attended past Veteran’s Day assemblies at Snoqualmie Elementary School, where his grandchildren attend classes, didn’t make it to this year’s assembly. He passed away in 2011. Yet this year, his daughter, Krista Holmberg of Snoqualmie, and widow, Betty Macko of Sammamish, came to honor the veterans in his stead. Macko spent most of World War II in one Japanese internment camp after another. Serving with the 2nd Bn., 4th Marine Division on Corregidor, he was captured early in the Philippines campaign and moved from camp to camp during the war. For almost the entirety of his life, Alvin never spoke of his wartime experience with his family. “I never heard a word of it until 10 years before he passed,” said Betty. “The kids didn’t even know.” Alvin may have been missing Friday, but 50 living veterans, some middle aged, some still in the service, and a couple old enough to have served or fought in Europe and the Pacific in the second world war, were there Nov. 8, as Snoqualmie Elementary School students held an upbeat celebration of their service. It was one of several school ceremonies in the Valley commemorating the holiday this week and last. Fifth grade students in teacher Desi Cudihee’s class led the program, carrying the colors, reading poems and forming a corridor of waving flags. A choir of the school’s fourth grade students sang rousing songs. During a slideshow, seated schoolchildren murmured with excitement as they saw pictures of family members, teachers and bus drivers in military uniform, photographed during their days of service, sometimes amid scenes of ships, aircraft and active service. “They put a lot of effort into it,” said Jason Maples, who accepted a card made by a third grader and a drawing colored by a Kindergartner in thanks for his Navy service. Maples, whose daughter Sophie attends school here, accepted the invitation by e-mail and came to the assembly. His six years of Navy service was a wonderful experience, he said. Today, he works as a security consultant. Cudihee said her students have been working since October on the tribute. Everyone played a role. “We had the runners, the greeters, the people who contacted veterans, the people to contact the screen (rental company), doing the powerpoint. They decorated. It was a whole effort.” “We did this because a lot of people… didn’t get celebrated for what they did,” said fifth grade student Caya Crooks. “We wanted to make sure everybody gets celebrated.” “They risked their lives for us to have our freedom,” added Haylee Osborn. “In their mind, they knew it was the right thing,” said Amelia Barnes. “They wouldn’t just be saving themselves. They would be saving everyone.”
Clockwise from left, fourth-grade students at Snoqualmie Elementary wave flags during a song in honor of veterans, Friday, Nov. 8; fifth grader Willow Bowman shows her patriotism; Bill Staggs served with the 1st Marine Division on Guadalcanal, Peleliu and Iwo Jima.

For the Mount Si girls volleyball team, the road to state ended last Saturday, Nov. 9, when the Wildcats fell in three matches to Seattle Prep, Holy Names and Bishop Blanchet. State was on the line. Mount Si learned, reacted and gutted out a hard-fought win in match six of the Sea-King volleyball tournament two nights earlier. The Mount Si girls used strong defense to a tough Bishop Blanchet team and used tactical kills to win in five on Thursday, Nov. 7. “It was pulling together as a team, doing our jobs, and doing it well,” that led to success Thursday, said senior Haley Holmberg. The Wildcats had to learn fast and step up quick to stay in this fight. Wildcat senior outside hitter Lindsay Carr led from the middle after the first set, in which the Braves raced to a win,1225. Carr and junior Anna McCreadie normally finish Mount Si volleys with kills, but they brought their speed into play to dig and set, too, feeding shots to each other and Holmberg. Meanwhile, Liz Larson and Jenn Rogers were constantly diving, hitting the floor Above, Anna McCreadie serves against to pull off saves for the Bishop Blanchett.

The next few minutes sealed Oak Harbor’s fate. First, it fumbled on the kick return. Mount Si recovered at the 21 and scored four plays later to make it 19-7. Mount Si received the second-half kickoff and put the game away. First, the team overcame a third-and-16 with a 50-yard pass play. Then it faced a 4-and-9, but got bailed out on a pass interference call on a throw that wouldn’t have been completed. Next, an Oak Harbor sack resulted in a 15-yard loss, but the play was wiped out by an Oak Harbor personal foul. On the next play Mount Si scored to lead 26-7. After Oak Harbor turned the ball over on downs at the Mount Si 37, Mount Si converted on two fourth downs on the way to scoring on the first play of the fourth quarter to make it 33-7. Oak Harbor showed a spark of life when Devroe returned the kickoff 74 yards to the Mount Si 19. However, an interception in the end zone on the next play doused that chance. A personal foul on the interception return pushed Mount Si back to the 1-yard line. It took the visitors only two plays to score. First, senior Bailey Takacs popped through the middle for 85 yards, and then Mitchell completed his third touchdown pass to finish the scoring. Mitchell, an Oregon State University recruit, completed 15 of 24 passes for 190 yards. Takacs finished with 191 yards on 23 carries. Mount Si held Oak Harbor to 190 rushing yards, 144 under its season average. • Whidbey News-Times’ sports editor Jim Waller contributed to this story.

"You go through tough times, you have to work through those. It's never going to be easy to win," said McCreadie. "When we work as a team, we can push through it," said Katie Larson. "It's all about the right mindset." The Mount Si varsity volleyball team ends their season with a 21-11 overall, record, 11-3 league. They took second place in the KingCo 3A league and won the league tournament last week. The Wildcats took sixth place in the district tournament.

She led scoring, with 26 kills and 15 digs; Holmberg had nine kills, McCreadie had six, and 35 assists, and Larson had four kills and 21 digs. Rogers had 16 digs. "I need to put the ball away," Holmberg said of her mindset as hitter. "My team was depending on it. They got the ball to me, to do my job." The Wildcats won the second and third sets, both 25-17, but fell in the third, 17-25, before rushing to take the crucial final one, 15-7. Larson was downed in the fourth when she dove and landed on her sister's foot. The Braves took a knee for the minutes she was done, but Larson rose, and got back into the game a bit later. Larson explained how the Wildcats took several plays before they realized a response to Blanchet's longrange service and controlled kills. "They do hit differently from other teams we've played," she said. "They definitely spread their offense a lot more… We got a handle on what their offense was like. It made defense a lot easier for us." Serving and passing strong, Katie Larson performed well against Blanchet on Thursday, and got a lot of praise from her teammates. She has been working hard in practices. McCreadie slammed the last few kills to claim the win in the fifth set. "I was just doing my job," McCreadie said. "Lindsay was putting up awesome sets. I was ready to be done." "I want us to play Wildcat volleyball," said McCreadie, "and I want to see us make it to state. We're going to keep working hard."
