The fifth grade class at Cascade View Elementary in Snoqualmie shows its 12th Man spirit, wearing green and blue on Friday, Jan. 17, above. Seahawks football fans have been fired up around the Valley, with many students, teachers, and employees at local businesses wearing team colors before the big game. The North Bend Theatre aired games on the big screen for both the Jan. 11 and Jan. 18 home games, with fans getting loud after big plays. See more local fan photos at www.valleyrecord.com.

North Bend Councilman Jonathan Rosen, Senior Planner Mike McCarty, Valley Little League scheduler Troy Garwood, Public Works Director Frank Page, and SVLL President Roy Baunsgard meet at the Torguson Park baseball fields. The city is partnering with the league for a major upgrade to the park.
Ballots should arrive in the Snoqualmie Valley this week for an important school vote, but probably not the one most citizens are thinking about. At issue in the Feb. 11 election are the renewals of two existing levies worth $18 million, not the much-discussed $216 million facilities bond that the Snoqualmie Valley School Board is considering for a future ballot. “These are replacement levies… we don’t see them as add-on, or new tax measures,” said Snoqualmie Valley School District Superintendent Joel Aune.
League, city have big vision for Torguson Park BY SETH TRUSCOTT Editor
